' PoetK In ' 51 we started our long journey; It Is something we ' ll never forget. They called us " green " freshmen For we remember that yet. The next year we were sophomores. And we didn’t have much to do. But without the help of each teacher, We wouldn’t have made it through. Then finally we were juniors, In the year of ’53. While we were working on the Prom, We were as happy as could be. And now we are seniors, And our journey is about through. We are getting ready to leave Maroa High, To find a future that will be new. We wish to thank each teacher, And to show our appreciation. For they have done so much for us, And helped with our Graduation. Margaret Butler. Eloise Simposn.

The Senior Class (?C z4 i f955 ' ZSiatontf On a bright September morning in 1951 we numbered forty-one Pioneers setting out for a four year journey to the promised land. As advisor we had Mr. William Shaw who was also new at our school. We knew We would need good leadership to get our trip started right, so we elected Orville Dash President with Sandra Johnson Vice Presi¬ dent, Jerry Cox Secretary and Don Coon as Treasurer. After a proper initiation by the old veterans of the wagon train we began to make the name ’’Class of 55” famous. During the year we lost several member to Indian attacks: Nellis Adams, Don Shockey, Betty Gilbert, Yvonne St Clair and Bob Priest; but gained as replacements Shirley Page!, Joyce Haenny, Kay Abel, Ross Walden. A fter reaching the one-quarter mark we started our second year With Sue Jackson as President and Ruth Jennings, John Duxbury and Gary Lualleu as the Other officers. After summer vacation Susan Perry, Doris Bivens, Don Coon and Jerry Cox failed to return. During the v ear Shirley Page! and Bill Henderson left our ranks while Curtis Smith Was an addition to our numbers. When the wagon train delegated us the financial duties we chose John Duxbury head of our organisation, while Ruth Braden, Sandra Johnson and Ross Walden were his assistants. We had the sweets con¬ cession bar our caravan and sold magazine subscriptions under the management of Sue Jackson. Floy Foster, Kay Abel and Duane MulUiv? left us during the year and Pat Mowry joined us. Nancy Hale returned after being gem the first half of the year while Nellie Dietz left again a short time after joining us For the final lap of our journey we again chose John Duxbury as President with Grit Creekntur. Ross Walden and Gan Luailsn as the other officers. We had gained an im- murvtv to both the Indians and the plague as m lost no members but gained John Parker, t l Voters, and Beaty Celbeck. At midyear Batxfefc Grubbs, pictured, joined ns but re¬ turned to Salinas, Kansas to graduate. S ABLE A. ALEXANDER J. ARCHEY a ARNOLD V. CLIFTON R. COOPER E. CRABTREE M DEALEY S. DUBSON D.

The union was formed to conserve valuable energy among the prisoners. On the list of energy conserving ideas are the following: 1. Cushioned seats and pillows for all chairs to improve sleeping conditions. 2. Noiseless bells to make sleeping easier. 3. Elevators to save energy used in going up and down the steps. 4. Change all physical education classes to sleeping periods. 5. Different candy machines so energy won’t be wasted pushing down handles. 6. Automatic door openers on all cells. 7. Water fountains that run continually to save energy used in turning them on. 8. Lower baskets and shorter floe in gym. 9. Pneumatic drills to replace pick axes. 10. Lighter books to carry. 11. No doors to open on lockers. 12. All classes in one room so inmates won’t have to walk from class to class. Officers on the ECU have been elected and are: President-Larry Haines Vice President -Jim Hughes Secretary---Orville Dash Treasurer-- — - - Roy Stephenson STRANGE RUMOR FLYING AROUND PRISON The rumor is that 36 prisoners in Cell Block three are planning an escape in the near future. The Sentinel has heard that for some reason tne guards don’t care whether they escape or not. In fact some guards are furnishing keys and guns to the prisoners. FINAL SING-SING INTER-CELL BASKETBALL STANDINGS RELEASES The final standings have been released for the Sing-Sing Inter-Cell League. TEAM WON LOST Cell Block Three 55 0 Cell Block One 10 20 Cell Block Fifteen 10 30 Cell Block Twelve 10 40 The Solitary Confinement team finished with a 20-15 record, but their games were taken from the standings when it was found they were using a player who wasn ' t in solitary confinement. Art Creekmur of the Solitary Confine¬ ment team led the league in scoring with 10 points in 35 games. . Cell Block three set a new one game scoring record in their last game when they won 6-2. The game was stopped at the half when a stabbing occurred under the basket. It was only the tenth murder this season. Lonny McClung set a new foul record by fouling 200 times during the past season. When asked why, he said, " The referees are against me because I squealed to the warden 35 years ago. ” BASEBALL TEAM LOSES STAR PLAYER The prison baseball team lost its star player recently when they were playing a game with Alcatraz. It seems a homerun was hit over the fence, and Gary Luallen volunteered to go find it. He never came back. Luallen was hitting . 055 at the time of his departure and has made only 55 errors in his first 55 games. THAT IS THE WAY LIFE GOES IN THE BIG PRISON. UD, I sincerely hope you enjoy reading this annual as much as I have enjoyed working on it. In later years as you look through your annual I hope it will bring back memories of your years at Maroa High. Sue Jackson I have enjoyed immensely working on the " PIONEER” for 1955. It has given me great pleasure to work on this annual. I hope it brings back fond memories and pleasure for the readers as it has for me. J.
