It was a rainy sloppy day in April of 1960. 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
"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.
Have you seen the results of the election?"
"No, I haven't".
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
"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-
"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
"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.

really got excited. 'I'hat must have been a

"Coming soon, Carol Thomas and Richard

"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
"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
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
"I believe it did. too."

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.

expenses during their junior and senior years,
such as buying class rings. senior pictures, etc.

and storing up memories for
years to come. During the four
years they spend in classes at

tion that will be put to good use
