HILLBILLY COURTSHIP 3 act Farce By Austin Goetz The Widow Peppin and deaf old Pappy Stilsby have swom to shoot each other on sight as their mountain feud rages verbally. The two old feudists have been planning second matrimonial ventures, and each has secretly engaged Wash jeddo, the halfwitted village scribe, to write to a matri- monial bureau for a mate. Wash has enclosed Emmy's picture in Ma's letter and Luke's in Pappy's, signing their respective names instead of Ma's and Pa.ppy's. Meanwhile, the moun- tain is all agog over the homecoming of the Triffet girls, radio's newest hillbilly sensation, who bring their manager, Sol Silverstein, with them in quest of more hillbilly enter- tainers. When Sol attempts to sign Ma on the dotted line, she mistakes him for an answer to her letter and jumps at the chance. Luke and Emmy are dumbfounded as Hog mountain is transformed into an active volcano of riotous courtship. How the mates are properly selected is a triumph of hillbilly dexterity, and Sol signs up enough hillbilly warblers to start a new revolution on the air.

They made plans for their yearbook, such ns, theme, dedication, and pic- tures that would tell the story of 1955-56 school year. The production of a year- book, however, required at considerable amount of finan- cial support. This financial support was taken care of by the senior class.

We had two parties this year, one a freshman get together at South Henderson and the other at Sandy's Roller Rink at Burlington. In May we saw the Seniors graduate and knew that we would someday do the same, we hoped. In August we were glad school had started, though we complained. This year we were big wheels, being over the freshmen. We soon found out that we were not so big with two other classes over us. We had two parties this year, both at Sandy's Rink. Summer vacation is here again! School again, but we were glad. This year we were juniors and had to start making money for some of the hard earned money. Boy! What happened to that school year? Ahh, Seniors at last. It sure is not much different than the last three years. This year we really are going to have to work if we are going on a trip. We have dances, bakesales, carwashes, and a chili supper. This year we don't have to have any Prom for the upperclassf men, some money saved. Gee! What happened to the last four years? They sure went fast. In closing we, the Senior Class of 1955-56, wish to express our sincere gratitude to the teachers of Gladstone-Oquawka High School for their help and understanding for the past four years. We leave to the classes remaining, our best wishes and hope they will have as many good times as we did. As we pass through the doors of G 81 O for the last time as students, we bid a fond farewell to the past and hope the future may be as pleasant. the Senior Trip, which all seniors take at the end of the year. We had a play, bakesales, and even two dances. This year we had a Prom for the seniors at the high school gvm. there goes 41? 4 1- .--- - I, Ii r it r --f u a liz: gi u X x G -'S' , it xv! yblfllgu I , f 'T' if if it 1 'T' 5 ll X 4 l H.
