His Honor, Judge Wahl, and his sophisticated wife were among the notables present
at the festivities. Judge Wahl, Mike to us, is a member of the Supreme Court. He is
the youngest member ever to be allowed on the bench. An exception was made in
Mike's case when, after one year as mayor of Chicago, he cleaned out every racketeer
in that large city: one year and a half in New York City left that metropolis without
any gangsters also. Mike is married to a socialite from Long Island. They are the
proud parents of two children.
'Iviiss Butterworth, Murt to us, wasn't able to attend because her school on an
Indian reservation in New Mexico was still in session. The following fall after we
graduated from good old Hebron High, Murt found herself uncontrollably drawn back
to school, so she took up the teaching profession. Murt isn't yet married, but we hear
from reliable sources that she is casting her eyes at a certain elgible young brave,
a cousin to Tonto, the Lone Ranger's right hand man.
Ki Wagner was another member unable to be present. Ki was being treated in a
hospital for somnambulism. Ki lives in Chicago near the Brookfield Zoo. One night
Osome of Ki's friends found him swinging on the bars in the monkey cage oblivious
to his surroundings.Another evening Ki was evidently dreaming of Lana Turner be-
cause he was in the bear cage saying, "Lana, what a beautiful fur coat you're wear-
ing--but your nose is all wet." We all hoped sincerely that Ki would recover from
this last escapade when "Lana" squeezed two ribs out of place.
A wonderful evening had drawn to a close for the seniors of '49, All of them an-
ticipated our next reunion in '69.

The dancers withdrew when the spotlight was beamed on a spectacular dancing
couple. The crowd applauded enthusiasticly as the couple swayed to and fro to the
rhythm of the music. I saw that the boy was Tom Sweney. After the dancers had taken
their bows, Tom introduced his partner as his fiance. Tomhad his name in lights on
Broadway two years after graduation. He now lives in Vermont in the summer and in
Florida through the winter. He is planning to retire at the age of thirty.
A whoop of Yippi-I-Ki-Oh echoed through the gym. The crowd turned toward the
gyln. The crowd turned toward the person responsible for the outburst. Guess who?
Willis Birky, in a stetson, was starting to strum his guitar. It was common knowl-
edge that Willis owned a big spread in Texas and had replaced Burl Ives, the singing
troubador, on the radio and screen. To our great delight Willis played and sang sev-
eral of his favorite songs. A
Wilma Hough and her husband were a famous duo present. Wilrna and her spouse
are fearless deep-sea divers. Wilma told me that while diving for sponges one day
she felt an arm steal around her and thinking it was an octopus slashed 'away at it
with her knife. She almost made the poor guy bleed to death. While nursing him back
to health she fell in love with him and they had their wedding ceremony under the sea.
Need I say they had a very exclusive reception?
The highlight of the evening was at hand, the seniors of '49 crowded around the
television set. The Masked Marvel was wrestling for her last time in Madison Square
Garden. "We" knew that the Masked Marvel was lvlary Margaret Rathburn, the Editor
of our yearbook. Mary threw the Boston Bloomer Girl out of the ring in the lst down,
which made her the undisputed champion woman wrestler for ten years. Mary an-
nounced to the audience that she now planned to retire to a quiet life with her third
husband, Ching Chow, a 300 pound Chinese wrestler.
As the band resumed playing I hailed one of my classmates I hadn't yet chatted
with. Christine Anderson was escorted by a tall, dark and handsome gentleman.
Christine has become a famous model and screen star in the ten years' since her
graduation. Chris was crowned Miss America of 1950 which led to movie contracts
and many modeling jobs for leading magazines.

Here are the 'high-lights' of our pasttwelve years. Now that we are sen-
iors, we can look back over our experiences which we shall never forget.

In 1937, a new group of brightfaces appeared at schoolfor the first time.
Miss Wahl, who was our first grade teacher, had no trouble in controlling ug
since we were rather timid at this new experience. These new pupils were:
Norma Aiken, Carol Anderson, Catherine Anderson, Christine Anderson, June
Aylesworth, Mildred Beckwith, Muretta Butterworth, Mary Gingerich, Wilma
Hough, Gerda Kaldahl, Beverly Klukas,Clara Margison, Joan McAlpin, Mary
Morgan, Mary Morrow, Anita Pfledderer, Janis Prochno, Kathleen Witters,
Mary Rathburn, Leland Albertson, Jimmy Cox, Stephen Fox, Fred Justice,
Bernard Martin, Jack Osby, Glenn Smith, Walter Stockman, Tom Sweney,
James Thornsbery, Mike Wahl, Don Fickle, Herbert Young, Theron Coates.
The nest year we found ourselves in the second grade with Miss Wahl as
our teacher again fof course we all didn't fail.j We were happy to have Donna
Van Veld from Hammond, Milford Fox, Edward Davis, Leslie Sutter, William
Miller and Eugene Osby in our class.
It was Mrs. McMillen who shared with us the thrill and experience of
starting out third grade in the new school building. New pupils to share this
with us were Curtis Richard, Robert Felton from Crown Point, Eugene and
Betty Woodke, Ethel Griffin, Jeannine Wright from Ridge Road School, Barbara
Wahlberg and Rosalie Craig. A
In the fourth grade, we produced "Red Shoes from Plymouth' and 'The
Toy Mender." This was done under the direction of Miss Sloan. Remember
the tea we gave for our parents afterwards? We were happy to have Charles
Sweney, from Gary, join us. At that time we didn't know Charles wouldbe one
of the first five on our basketball team.
As fifth graders we had our first art lesson from Miss Nolan. She also
had trouble in making us understand why we should behave as young ladies
and gentlemen. Again this year our class gainedmembers, Robert Hrdlicka,
Pete Massey and Claudia Sampson.
During our sixth year, Mrs. Morrow was preparing us for the high school
side. William Bohdon was in time to join us in the election of class officers.
It was great fun to act as students in high school!
