sha starred in May Day, while we fouled up the May Pole C This time, we were swathed in blue
gauze.D This was the year when everything was "jovial". Remember?
It was now for us as juniors to be further dedicated to the unfinished project which we had
thus far so nobly advanced-namely, that we cram as much fun, devilment, and plain good times
as possible into each school year. Headed By Nancy A., who was ably assisted by Mary Lynn and
Bettie B., we went down in history as the first class to have dances in the new gym. Heaven help
the finish on the new gym floorb. The Blacks and Blues battled this year under the command of
Mary Ann and Emmy W. Susan was our welfare representative and Patty and Judy Y. attended
the Student Council meetings in our name. Mary and Ann were the co-editors of the Static, and
Mary Ann, Patty, Martha, Mary Lynn and Gail were added to the board. Martha was president
of Christian Forum, and Betsy directed our sore muscles in the Modern Dance Club. At the close
of the year, Gail won the coveted Grace McCallie Scholarship.
The big event of the year was our trip to Washington and New York. None of us will ever
forget sleeping UD in the baggage racks and on the floor of the train on the trip up, running
up our mileage by "economically" walking up and down the Washington Monument and the
Statue of Liberty, shopping for handkerchiefs at Saks, Fifth Avenue, tramping around New
York in the rain, eating at those "fabulous" automats, and the kind hospitality U7 with which
we were received at Mount Vernon.
It is for us seniors to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from this
remaining year we extract the last full measure of enjoyment. With Katie as our president, Kay
Gladish, our vice-president, and Cynthia, extracting our senior funds as treasurer, we embarked on
our final year at G.P.S. The Kaleidoscope was ably edited by Ann, assisted by Bettie B., and aided
by Kay and Betsy B., in the business matters. Other members of the Annual Board were Mary
Lynn, Lynn, Judy Young, Betsy C., DeeDee, Gail, Michele, and Janice. Graham presided over the
Student Council and Mary, Mary Ann, and Patty were our other defenders on the Council. Lance
led the school Welfare Drive, helped by Martha. Dot tried as president of the Music Club to in-
still a little "culture" in us, and Nancy A., as president of Modern Dance bravely directed to us
many aches and pains on Friday mornings. Sarah headed the Know Your Bible Club, Sally, the
Christian Forum, Jean, the Glee Club, and Martha, Theater Arts. Betsy C. was our lovely May
Queen, and her Maid of Honor was Mary Ann Miles. Most Popular was Cynthia and Most Ac-
tive was Graham. Mary Walker was chosen Neatest, Marsha, Most Graceful, Gail, Most Likely to
Succeed, and Ansley, Cutest.
We here highly resolve that these years shall not have been spent in vain-that this Class of
1957 shall always remember these years at G.P.S., and that the traditions of the school, by the
founders, for the students shall remain dear to us always.

Who can learn the whims of
Who can know what will befall?
Why, that's me, Madame Swami,
Gaze into my crystal ball!
As I gaze into the crystal,
I behold a lady fair,
It must be Betsy, brewing liquid
HQOg for her hair.

She's discovered a new method
For making effervescent pills.
Owner of a sleek white Jaguar,
Swimming pools, and other toysg
Sarah has a new best seller
Entitled merely, "Boys, Boys, Boys!'
In the depths of the gymnasium
I now spy a charming lass-
Why, it's powerful Ann Corbitt,
Leader of the Phys. Ed. class.
From the good old penitentiary
I can hear a sorrowful wailg
Patty shold have known her
Could but lead to one place-jail!
In the highest realm of women,
Michele really is a star.
She was just elected president
Of U.D.C. and D.A.R.

She practices psychiatry.
Since she's learned to speak the

Whose reputation is not so dim.
Her latest one is now entitled,

Sitting there, without a word.
And now I see our Songbird,

Sitting in for Minnie Pearl.
A big occasion at G.P.S.-
Miss Moyer's so happy that she
She got a letter from Cynthia,
"I've found the recipe for Pi!"
O O O
Dot and Dodo, our cheerleaders Graham, the notorious outdoor
Are getting quite risque, I fearg
Their next important project is
Leading the "dirty boogie" cheer.
An important figure is our Katie
With white starched cap around
Poor Larry went to school so long,
Katie is the M.D. instead.
Overmyer and Fowler now are
Teaching basketball in the Big Ten,
They don't know much about the
But . . . what they know about the
Poor Joyce could never break the

Her taxi service streaks from
Red Bank to Baylor twice a day.
Sally has found a tough adversary
In ferocious Nancy Browng
While she rescues drowning
Nancy tries to push them down.
Jean is now a top-grade singer,
She rakes in quite a yearly fee,
While on the sidelines wait her

To make G.P.S. a happy landg

Their picture, "Gentlemen Prefer

From the halls of Duke University
I heard astounding news of late-
Dumbest girl to go to college,
Gail will never graduate!
Bettie B.'s a T. V. herog
Tune in at seven every dayg
She puts to expert use her slogan,
"Keep your conversant at bay."

Admitting only college men.

Is planning a venture to the Artic-
Cooler, fresher air at last!
Mary Walker's a big name model,
And we finally found out how.
She works for Borden's making
As Elsie, the contented cow.
The way that Jonette and Marsha
Raising children is the newsg
They are happy and contented,
But do they get those washday
In the Blue Grass of Kentucky
Kayo now is satisfiedg
She raises horses for the purpose
Of keeping bookies well supplied.
Also in the hills of Kentucky
Are Carolyn and Linda, so I hearg
They are really keeping busy
A-teachin' every mountaineer.
B.C. and Mary Ann are in Paris-
Noted for their striking forms,
They have outclassed Worth and
Modelling G.P.S. uniforms.
Susie's finally hit the jackpot.
Her name goes from mouth to
She built a new Empire State
In the sunny, Solid South.
Only gangsters of our gathering,
Making many illegal salesg
Warner and Currin are the
Selling those false pony tails.
Lance has many naughty pupils
Who keep getting in her hairg
Worst of all the G.P.S.'ers
Is Judy Young . . . 'cause she's still
Deep in the heart of her laboratory
Janice is mixing up a blast,
She's discovered 2,000 elements
Of which Franklinium is the last.

Known for landing parts with luck,
Goes to work for Disneyland,
In the role of Daisy Duck.
