I, Wilma Lou Dippel, was trying to make my way down the crowded main street in Podunk, when suddenly I received a sharp jab in the stomach from my umbrella handle. Before I could lower my umbrella, l heard pretty angry words apparently coming from the person with whom I had collided. Cautiously l lowered my umbrella, and to my great surprise it was my neighbor and old school-mate Anna Louise Clark. I accepted her apologizes and also her offer to enjoy a cup oi coffee with her at Gerry's Stop-ln. Together we went across the street and into the new and modern Gerry's Stop-In, "Gerry surely has a nice place here," re- marked Annie. "I havent seen the paper yet today: I Just got one: I hope you don t mind if 1 look at it." Annie pulled a copy of the Podunk Gazette out OI ner shopping bag and started to look at it. Suddenly she gasped. "What's the matter?" I asked. il Have you seen the results of the election?" "No, I haven't". i. Well, look here, 'Pursley defeats Lone Ranger in race for sheriff! ' "l knew hed win, simply because Pursley has his car and the Lone Ranger only has Silver." "These days we need speedy crime detection because Podunk is getting bigger, and then too, Silver is getting old and he can't quite Keep up with Purs1ey's jet-propelled car: so naturally Pursley won the election? All this had made me anxious to see the paper also. "Move over, let's see what else is happening. Oh, look here! Podunk Twins win at National Twin Convention in Chicago." "Podunk Twins?" asked Annie. "That must be Jack and Jean. Why yes it is, it says 'Jack and Jean Decker, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Decker, today won top honors at the National Twin Convention in Chicago'. They were chosen to receive the top honors because of their iden- tical likeness." "Well, what do you know!" "Look here, 'Podunk farmer wins National Corn Growing Contest'." "Podunk Farmer? Read on, well here, let me, 'Walter Mankey, Podunk farmer, won the Na- tional Corn Growing Contest with a yield of one thousand bushels per acre!" "Wow! Some corn, Listen to this, "announced Annie, !'Curryville has new Superintendent of nurses! Well, I guess it's about time, wonder who it is? Why, it's Etta Gerber!" uReally?" I exclaimed, "Here's another ar- ticle 'Four Podunk Farmers Attend Annual Farmer's Convention at Purdue." "Who is that now?" '!Wait it says right here, 'Dick Hinshaw, Bill Barger, Luther Gerber and Don Reinhardl I think we have read all the news on this page. Turn to the sport's page." Annie turned to the Sport's page. There were big headlines across the page which she read. "Podunk Basket-bouncers defeat Curryville Bucket heads." "What was the score?" '208 to 5 in a double overtime. They got speed! Listen to this 'Dave Paxson 34 points. Don Yager 34, Dale Meyer 35, Lester Meyer 34, Eddie bryan 34, and Bob Worden 34 points. 'lhe way it reads here Coach Willis Prichard really got excited. 'I'hat must have been a game." "What's on at the show?" "Coming soon, Carol Thomas and Richard Kruetzman, the second "Abbott and Costello, courtesy OI Floyd Runyon, owner of the Po- dunk theater." "Golly. wc don't want to miss that, they're our old school mates." "Look down here, Wilma, Betty Heffelfin- ger's engagment is announced. About all the KICIS are married now." " 'Farmer Podunk citizen inherits Filling Station." Let me read you some thing about it. 'Bonnie l-luss, former citizen of Podunk re- ceived word that she inherited the Zoll Service Stationf ' "Well, she surely deserves it. I remember when she used to worry about getting her work done for Mable." Anna Louise started reading " 'Dwight Wolf accepts position as agriculture teacher at Po- dunk High School'. I always did wonder what happened to him." t'Oh! Look down here in the personals col- umn. 'Joyce Johnloz, who is employed in her father's grocery store in Murray, spent her four week's vacation in Floridaf " t'She must have liked it there to go back again." We turned to the classified ads to see if we could find anything else of interest. Annie found one ad that read, "Does your horse look sick? Do his eyes bulge out? Do his ribs stick out? Does he refuse to eat his hay? Does he slobber over his oats? If he has any of these symptoms. better call Podunk 334. Harold Baumgartner, horse doctor." "I found one! 'Does your car spit and cough. or do the wheels wobble, or does it have knocks and squeeks? In other words is your car a wreck? If it is come and see me, Harry Steffen at Steffen's Garage. My motto is "If I can't fix it nobody else can either." "That sounds like old 'Stub'." laughed Annie. "This one advertises Naomi Yake's photo- graphy studio which is located in the ,Grove Building. We must go down to see her.' "Here's one that will kill you," announced Annie, "Do you have the feeling you are losing your mind? Are some of your bolts slightly loose? If they are you need an appointment with me. Delores Kreig. Psychiatrist. We both were laughing pretty hard by this time, I imagine the other customers were won- dering what was tickling us. Annie found one advertising dancing lessons given by Lucille Reinhard at her studio. and I found one telling us of the twirling lessons Sarah Jane Nash was giving. Later Anna Louise remarked, "I don't know but I believe this edition of the Podunk Gazette contained something about everyone of our old classmates." "I believe it did. too."

Two of the girls. Bonnie Huss and Bonnie Gibson, were refelected this year. Since this has been their third year of experience in the art of yelling. they have each received a sweat- er with a letter for their splendid work. Carol Barger was our new cheer leader this year. Although she was just a sophomore, she made an excellent yell leader. The girls' costumes were very attractive. They were planned to represent little "kittens" in boots. Bonnie Huss. the eldest of the girls. will graduate this spring: so we wish Bonnie and Carol the best of luck in cheer leading in the future. Left to right: Bonnie Huss, Carol Barger, Bonnie Gibson.

These boys play almost as important a part in our basketball programs as the ball players. Yes, these are our student managers. This year they were Eddie Zirkle, Leon Byerly, and Dean k three veiy fine lads who deserve more Dec er. " . praise than managers actually receive. The work of the managers includes such various duties as keeping the dressing room and supplies in order, attending all practices. . t- keeping an accurate shooting chart, and assis ing the team at all games. Mr. Bryan, again has completed another fine vear of coaching, and we are very grateful to him for doing such a swell job. He has raised the standards and skills of our team even high- er this year. and he has given the team not only a way but a will to fight and win. We admire Mr. Bryan very much indeed for his patience and ability in contributing so much to our team and school. May he always remain the fine coach that he is today. ,. gr BOTTOM ROW CLeft to Rightlz Bob Worden, Don Yager, Doyle Stern, William C t Bryan, coachg Art Moser, Dave Paxson, Vernon Crozier.

Our Girls' volley ball team this year consisted of ten healthy, vigorous, and am- bitious girls. They worked very hard in trying to achieve better tactics in playing the game of volley ball. One outstanding feature of the game was their spiking method. Several of the girls were very efficient at this art, and they were indeed a great help to the team. Altogether, the team played four outside games: two with Bluffton, and two also with Petroleum. The girls were very successful in victory, and the girls' fine traits of sportsmanship, teamwork, courtesy and hospitality, which were supported by their coach, Mrs. Shady, had a great deal to do with their getting victories. Etta Gerber was the assistant for the team and, she also proved to be a great help throughout the year.

The editor, Virginia Hunter, who started a cam- paign to have certain disease breeding tene- ment buildings torn down, had plenty of trouble with Eli Sevrens. the man who owned the tenements. She managed to get Hal Spen- cer, editor of the Hollydale News. who was also in love with her, help her with the campaign. Between the kidnapping of her sister, Betty. by Sevren's men, Mrs. Van Tome, a local soci- ety woman who didn't want an interview with her daughter printed because it would ruin her husband's chances of becoming elected, Calvin Bradbury. author of the novel "Hot News," who wants an apology for what the Herald said about his book. and Nels Swenson, a ski-jump- ing champion, Virginia had quite a time getting things straightened out.

Even Twink Starr, Benita's young man, Whose suit is tabooed by Rebecca, joins the company of nuts in disguise, parading an acute case of delusions of grandeur, in hope of finding ai chance to soften the hard heart of Rebecca. Hilarious situations develop with the arrival of Dr. Hippocrates Joy. a synthetic psychiatrist. who undertakes to cure the patients. Compli- cations multiply as Rebecca searches for her deceased brothers money. which he left hid- den about the house. providing in a freak will that a portion of it is to go to anyone who hap- pens to find it. It soon becomes apparent that most of the patients are faking their various phobias in order to search for it. It's finaly dis- coverv. through the ingenuity of Twink Starr. forms a fitting climax for this speed-crazy farce of many laughs. -44- 1 L fi' J. i I I Boys Chorus We are quite proud of our boys' chorus as they have given many fine performances the past year. This year twelve boys joined the boys' chorus, to make a total of twenty-six. The boys' chorus took the major role in the minstrel which was given January 19. Victor Gerber. Lester Meyer, Dale Meyer, harry Stef- fen, Arthur Moser. Tom Wiebke, Floyd Run- yon. and Joy Stahl represented Lancaster in the District Chorus at Ft. Wayne during teachers' association. Also this year, Miss Sellers, our director. started a boys' quartet, composed of Dale Meyer, Harry Steffen, Lester Meyer. and Floyd Runyon. They sang for many local and school occasions.

Girls Chorus The girls' chorus has rendered many per- formances at several occasions during the school year. Due to conflicts in different sub- jects, we had to divide our Chorus into two different classes. Two of our outstanding events were the minstrel and participating in the All District Chorus. The following were the girls that represented Lancaster in the Dis- trict Chorus at the Ft. Wayne Division of the Teachers' association: Alice Smith. Lucille Reinhard, Anna Louise Clark, Arlene Ander- son, Naomi Yake. Bonnie Huss, and Bonnie Gibson. Again this year we presented an operetta. which was well-received. Seated: Bonnie Gibson.
