We enjoyed a grand Christmas Party, and after that we thought
about a suitable play to give. Finally it was decided to give "Sun-
bonnet Jane From Sycamore Lane." The entire Junior Class partici-
pated in it. Mr. Buechler was appointed play director, Mr. Allen
assistant director. It was a great success.
The next outstanding event was the Junior-Senior Banquet which
was held on April 18, 1950. Patricia Goeppner and Ray Merkley were
crowned Queen and King.
The boys participating in sports were Frank and Alf on the first
All Juniors were ready for vacation after a busy year.
Again we entered school for the year 1950-51, realizing this would
be our last year. Class officers were elected during the latter part of
September. They were as follows: Annie Schnaus, President, Frank
Schmitt, Vice President, Lillian Goeppner, Treasurer, and Mary J ahn,
Secretary. Mr. Earl Buechler was appointed class sponsor.
The senior class sponsored a school dance and the Christmas Dance.
Each one was a great success.
The basketball team was a successful one with Frank Schmitt and
Alf Burger being co-captains. Tony Terwiske was student manager.
Our senior class play was the biggest success in history.
Mr. Buechler, our class sponsor, entertained us on the 17th of Jan-
uary with a chicken fry. Everyone had a wonderful time.
The last week of school the Seniors had four parties which were
enjoyed by all and finally the time arrived for which we had been
striving for 12 years. All decked out in caps and gowns we were a
proud group of ten marching to the music of "Pomp and Circum-
stances." With our pride was mixed a slight sense of sorrow as we
thought of all the teachers, classmates, assignments, and real good
times We were leaving behind. It was the day of our commencement.

In the year one thousand nine hundred and forty-seven there entered
17 green freshmen in the Ireland High School. They were all very green
to the high school life.
Being timid and shy, we were led .on by the class ahead of us. VVe soon
got adjusted to high school life, and things began to buzz. We had
election of class officers, and they were as follows: Patty Morgan,
President, Millie Mehringer, Vice President, Marcella Stenftenagel,
Treasurer, and Ray Werner, Secretary. Miss ,Anna Marie Schurig was
appointed class sponsor.
By the time the first month of school was over, we received an invi-
tation to initiation given by the Sophomores. It was held on October 2,
1947. We were very shy but attended it with great anxiety. Our next
event was to give a return party to the Sophomores. It was decided at a
meeting to give them a Valentines Party on February 14, 1947.
Our Freshmen class was proud to have Frank and Alf on the basket-
ball line up. This brought our first year to an end with success. NVe were
now looking forward to a few months of vacation. Although we were
glad to have a vacation, we were very happy to return to school and
take our position as Silly Sophomores. Ready for action, we elected
class officers, who were as follows: Rose Mary Blessinger, President,
Bob Sermersheim, Vice President, Pat Morgan, Treasurer, and Eddie
I-Iopf, Secretary. Mr. Roy Allen was appointed class sponsor.
Our first class meeting was held during the latter part of September
and we ordered our class sweaters. It was decided to have Kelly green
with a green "I" trimmed in white with "51" written in white.
At our next meeting we set the date to give the Freshmen an invi-
tation party. It was held on October 8, 1948. All Sophomores were very
excited in preparing everything and everyone had a good time.
After our Initiation party, we got down to business until we had
another social event. It was a return party given to us by the Freshmen.
They gave us a wonderful party and we all had a fine time.
Our Sophomore class was proud to announce that Frank and Alf were
on the basketball lineup. By this time we were again ready for
Enjoying our vacation very much, we entered our Junior year with
great anxiety. This year there were ten jolly juniors. Class officers
elected were as follows: Carol Wagner, President, Alf Burger, Vice
President , Millie Mehringer, Treasurer, Lillian Goeppner, Secretary.
Miss Jane Esray was appointed class sponsor.
Our next big event was the arrival of our class rings. WVe were proud
of them and displayed them to everyone we saw.
On October 21, 1949 the Seniors entertained us by taking us to the
Oakland City Drive-In to see the show "The Red Pony." Everyone
enjoyed seeing it.
