v o r i t e saying:

We have arrived! Yes, after spending eight years
in the different grade school districts, the Class
of '56 has finally become freshmen and citizens of
the Montpelier High School City. To start off
right as first year residents, we held our elections,
choosing Clifford Rinker as our first mayorg Donna
Pence, chief of police, Sharon Schwarzkopf, clerk,
and as our first councilmen. Nancy Smith and
Gary Clamme. Our sponsors, Mrs. Wallace and
Mr. Thimlar, had a trying time in leading fifty-
nine of us through our first year of residence.
We presented our convocation on January 23.
Well, here we are citizens of the Sophomore
Class in the city of M. H. S. This year we elected
capable Frank Brackin as mayor: Clifford Rinker
as chief of police: John Price as clerk, and Nancy
Smith, Donna Pence, Gary Clamme, and Virgil
Ledbetter as councilmen. This year fifty-eight
students enrolled in our class, and to lead us
was Mrs. Nunn and Mr. Brinkerhoff. On February
19 we presented our convocation, consisting of the
different members of the class showing off their
talent. Also in February we held a magazine drive,
which turned out to be very successful.
Now we were rolling! We were now citizens of
the Junior Class in the school city of M. H. S.
In this, our third year of residence, we elected
Max Hiser as mayor: Jerry Robbins as chief of
police. Donna Pence as clerk, and Nancy Smith,
Virgil Ledbetter, Donna Pence, and Gary Clamme
as our councilmen. The sponsors for our third
year were Miss Nelson. Miss Cline, and Mr.
Forbes. We held our convocation: "Wide Awake
Willie", a hilarious comedy. on January 21. An-
other successful comedy, our class play, "Atta Boy
Walt", was presented April l. The class then got
together to work one night and all the next day
to prepare the gym for the annual Junior-Senior
banquet. Our theme for the banquet was "Three
Coins in the Fountain", with a large fountain in
the center of the gym. All this prepared us for
our final big year.
Here it is, the "Big Year!" Yes, we have finally
made it to the Senior Class of the Montpelier
School Community. We were happy to receive as
new citizens Joe Morris from Cambridge City and
Kenneth Payne from Chester Center. This year
we elected Neil Marshall as mayor, Jerry Robbins
as chief of police, Joyce Hart as clerkg and Nancy
Smith, Donna Pence, Virgil Ledbetter, and Clifford
Rinker as councilmen. The class had an enroll-
ment of fifty-three members, the largest in seven-
teen years for a senior class. The sponsors of the
class were Miss Albertson, Miss Van Horn, and
To start the year off right, we had Herb Grubb
and his Melodaires for the "Annual" benefit show.
Next we started the "Annual" drive on October 26.
We sold 425 "Annuals", with Carol Reff, the
champion salesman, selling thirty annuals. With
this accomplished, we began to feel more confident
of our abilities. We held our convocation on No-
vember 23, and presented our class play, "Rest
Assured," on May 4.
Then on May 10 the Annuals arrived, and we
had an autographing party to sign each others'
Annuals. Baccalaureate exercises were held May
20, and we received our diplomas at commence-
ment on May 22. Our commencement speaker was
Clarence Dammon, registrar and director of ad-
missions at Purdue University.
We have come to the end of our senior year.
I don't think that anyone actually realized its
meaning until we were about to receive our di-
plomas. And so. feeling somewhat sad and senti-
mental, we leave the Montpelier School City to
face the crises of adult life in the same determined
spirit with which we faced any school crisis that
Forty-eight freshmen went to school
Under Mr. Wilson's rule.
Forty-eight children, fat and lean,
Forty-eight freshmen shy and green.
Everyone with all his grace.
Every day in proper place,
Books and pencils, every one:
Time for class work now had come.
Miss Albertson. good and kind.
Hunted those who lagged behind,
Taught us how to write and speak,
And gave courage to the meek.
And Miss Nelson. good at numbers,
Helped us figure and avoid too many blunders.
Miss Jean Rea in the library
The one big thing we appreciate:
Plenty of freshmen to initiate.
On we went that second year.
Where are those who lagged behind.
On life's racetrack in high gcar.
Where's the one who changed his mindi'
Our Junior year was slipping past:
Seniors we, next year at last.
For the seniors we prepared
A banquet dinner, tasty 'n rare
With the seniors we did rate:
They said our prom was really great.
We wished upon the wishing well
That next year, as Seniors, wc'd ring the bell
Then we worked as ne'er before
Urged us to choose all the books we could
But we freshmen didn't cry.
For we-'d be sophies by and byg
We gathered up our courage then,
For the next year we'd be men.
Freshmen days are almost done:
Hardest part of the race is won.
Semester exams then to face,
And low grades may mean disgrace.
Sophomores, at last are wel
Happier now we couldn't be.

out the season. Since Jack is a junior, he will be back to help the Pacer cause next year.
Fred Reff - As this was Fred's first year on the varsity, he didn't see too much action. However.
he showed great improvement toward the end of the season. Fred is a senior and will not be with the
squad next year.
Don Schwarzkopf - Donnie, the only sophomore on the varsity, has shown great improvement and
promises to be a threat to the opposition next year.
Dick Payne - Dick, a brother to Kenny, saw most of his action with the Ponies and at the sectional.
Since Dick is a junior, he will be back with the Blue and Gold next year.
Bill Bales - Although most of Bill's efforts were put forth with the Ponies, he did see limited action
with the Pacers and always gave his best. Bill will also be with the Pacers next year.

Ten Years Hence
It is now June, 1966. Today the Class of '56 is
having its annual picnic. The day is bright and
sunny, with birds singing everywhere. Let's drop
in on the picnic to see how things are going. But,
first, a little background.
Tom Simmons, rich executive, with the help
of Walter Scott and Bob Fitch, has bought Blue-
water and the other stone quarry and has turned
them into a resort called the Twin Lakes. Bill
Kellogg, a turkey rancher, spends his summers
there fishing. In winter Jim Myers rents Tom's
cabin to ice fish. But let's return to the picnic.
There are Cliff Rinker and Rex Hiday, local
farmers, talking to Herschel Needler, state trooper,
and his wife, the former Sharon Schwarzkopf.
Herschel seems to be giving Cliff a ticket for
"flying" too low in his Cadillac. Looks as if Cliff
is in need of lawyer Tom Mounsey or Max Hiser.
Over there fixing the lunch are the teachers,
Mary Kelsay and Mrs. Neil Marshall, the former
Carol Reff. Jerry Robbins and Neil are discussing
basketball with John Price and Kenny Payne,
coaches. Air Force officers, Ronnie Storms, Har-
old Evans, and Harold Parker have flown in for
the picnic, landing on Tom Schwarzkopf's dairy
ranch. With them is their machinist, Steve Malott.
Dick Peck and Virgil Ledbetter, supermarket mag-
istrates, are arguing with Bill Racer of Racer's
Atomic Bakery over the price of bread.
There are several of the "old married folk"
getting together to talk about old times: Mr. and
Mrs. James D. Wert, the former Mary Ellen Pugh,
Mr. and Mrs. Donnie Hummer, the former Wilma
Terhuneg Mr. and Mrs. Gary Winder, the former
Betty Jo Quillen, Mr. and Mrs. Dannie Morris, the
former Phyllis Marshall, Mr. and Mrs. Everett
Lee, the former Joyce Hart, Mr. and Mrs. Melvin
Chandler, the former Carol Moyer, Mr. and Mrs.
Jack Borton, the former Sally Cookg Mr. and Mrs.
Jack Connely, the former Helen Herring: and Mr.
and Mrs. Gary Clamme, the former Donna Pence.
Joe Morris is gathering his band together for
a few numbers. There's Donna Burchard, his clar-
inet player. Carol Chapman warms up on the
piano, and Paul Ely beats a short tattoo on his
drums. Next to Paul is John Price, the famous
kettle drum player. Tom Mounsey is warming up
on his Sousaphone, and Max Hiser is playing
"Taps" on his trumpet. Tom Simmons strums his
guitar, while Nancy Smith plays her saxophone.
At Rosemary Davis' offer to sing request num-
bers, Cliff Rinker requests "If You Knew Suzie"
and Bonnie Ramseyer requests "Moments to Re-
member," a hit song of ten years ago.
Frank Brackin, Richard Armstrong, and Fred
Reff go for a spin around the lakes in Gerald
Runkle and Joe Shannon's speed boat. Watching
them so thrills Roberta Baker that she falls into
the lake. Quick! Get a doctor! No doctor is pre-
sent, but Nurse Kathryn Goble and her assistant,
Delphia Fear, revive Roberta with artificial res-
peration while Carolyn Pearson takes snapshots
of the incident and Tom Wilson writes his news
story on the end sheet of a 1956 Indianian. Then
Guy Cook quickly drives Tom to his news office.
The day draws to an end. The sun sets slowly
on the picnickers as they gather their belongings
together and depart to their homes. It has been
a great day, June 8, 1966.
