The audience at the Copa Cabanna in New York was cheering and applaud-
ing at the star performance oftwo well known hillbilly stars. Yes, you guessed
it, it was Ginny Porter and Jeanne Berlin. We didn't get the same thrill out
of the applause as we usually do as we were thinking of graduation night ten
years ago. So we decided to take a trip and look up our former classmates.
Hearing that our navy man Jack Atha was in England we flew there and
went to the base. There we were taken in to see the Admiral and can you
imagine our surprise when we saw it was Jack himself. After a short visit
with Jack we flew to Japan where we found Betty Lou Waugh. Betty told us
after graduation she joined the air force and decided to make it her life's
work. Reluctantly we left Betty and flew to the Hawaian Islands. There was
Charlie Foos taking life easy. Charlie is still a playboy and how he loves
those grass skirts. We found that Harvey Clark was also there and had opened
a roller skating rink, since becoming the champion skater of the world. We
flew next to Mexico where we found David Young in his Mexican costume. He
was quite famous as a publisher ofjoke books. A lot of these jokes were ones
we heard from him during our senior year. After a Hilarious visit with
David we went to Argentinawhere we visited Fred Murphy. He was now owner
of the largest foundary in the world. Fred is married and has 12 children.
Our next stop was in Hollywood, California, where we found Ruth Radel.
She is now a famous pop singer and was now singing in pictures. While
touring her studio we met her director. Imagine our surprise when the
director turned around and we saw Ken Hinaman. Yes, Ken was a real success
in Hollywood. Our next stop was in Nebraska where we met Virgil Steurer.
He had a large experimental farm there and was very successful.
Our next stop was in Chicago, Illinois, where we located Ruth Ann
Higgins. Ruth Ann had bought the chain of Murphy Stores and married a suc-
cessful business man. Marguerite Newman was in Chicago too so we went to
visit her. She was a private secretary to the president of the air-lines. We
said goodbye to Ruth Ann and Marguerite and headed for Indianapolis, where
we found Ronnie Schwaderer. We found Ronnie as the Hot Rod King. He was
getting his hot rod in shape for the big 500 lap race on the speedway. In
Cleveland we found Ron Patten and were we ever surprised. Ron was really
streamed lined and was running a reducing salon. We enjoyed our visit with
Ron and his family and he told us we could find Bill Cluff at O. S. U. doing
experimental agriculture work. After bidding Bill goodby, we got home to
Morral at last where we were welcomed by Max Brewer. We found Brewer's
Brewery had really prospered. Max and his wife now have five children.
After leaving Max we visited Buddy Heller. Buddy is now a very successful
medical doctor. We reminised about the wonderful times we had had at the
parties he gave during his junior and senior years. After leaving Buddy we
went to Virginia and there we found Bob Williams. He was coach at Williams
and Mary College at Williamsburg, Virginia. His basketball tea.m was the best
in the South. We went to Washington D. C. where we visited Eddie Brewer.
Eddie has become Secretary of Agriculture ofthe United States. Yes, we were
very happy for our classmates and their success in life but we had to get back
to New York so we bade Eddie farewell at the airport and with a happy feeling
inside us we say farewell until we meet again.

4 Once again we gather here in the amphitheatre for our annual show
"This Is Your Life." Tonight we have as our guest, the celebrated and
famous Morral High School.
Let us start with the year 1952, and on the day of September 2.
About to enter into the spotlight under the role of freshmen, we find a
group of unruly children numbering to 23. These precarious freshmen were
Ruth Radel, Marguerite Newman, Fred Murphy, Ruth Ann Higgins, Donna
Knickle, Roberta Capehart, Jackie Harris, Eddie Brewer, Duane Bosely, Lloyd
Simpson, Harvey Clark, Jim Chirstian, Jack Atha, Virgil Stuerer, Bill Cluff,
Ralph Brady, Ken Hinaman, Nick Alley, Max Brewer, Bud Heller, Bob
Williams, Charles Foos, and Dave Young.
The freshman year held many opportunities for party-going and all of
the big high school activities to which they were invited. Your freshmen felt
real big and grown up but soon found that freshmen had to work hard too.
Now as we go onto the Sophomore year of this class and here we find,
much to our sorrow, that we have lost Donna Knickle, Nick Alley, Roberta
Capehart, Jackie Harris, and Lloyd Simpson. But we also gained Dwight
Barry, Jeanne Berlin, Jackie Frost, Velda Long, Norma Routon, and Betty
This year of 1953 was to hold many great events for this class. Some
of the boys moved up to key positions on the reserve basketball team and the
greatest, of all happenings, this was the year to select our class rings. With
this class being a group well known for working together they all decided on
a ring which was one of the most attractive ever to gleam on the hand of a
Morralite. Yes, this too was aglorious year for you sheltered class of "56."
As we leave the year of 1953 and go to another page in your history,
Morral High, we find that you have many of the old students who are now quite
grown up and proud to accept the honor title of juniors. You were very sorry
to find that Ralph Brady and Velda Long were no longer with you, and very
glad to see that you had gained Gary Allen, Ron Schwaderer, Ginny Porter,
Ron Patton, and Ralph Harris.
For this class, there had been no year to match this one. The years of
54-55 were full and bubbling over with plans for our class play, "Coddled
Egbert," which was a roaring success. Next in sight was the banquet which
was one of the prettiest ever to be held inpyour gym. The theme, if you will
remember, was "A Night ln Fairyland" and was deemed a success by all.
After the banquet we find the juniors busy helping the seniors with concessions
at the basketball games and assisting them on the annual. This year came
to a close all too soon and we find these juniors ready and willing to accept
the title role of seniors.
The senior year, ahh, the one most longed for by some, and most dreaded
by others. This year finds your class busy with the annual, basketball games,
senior trip, choosing of invitations, colors, and motto. There were many
heated discussions in this class but they always agreed on a decision which
was best for all.
As your class of "56" leaves they want to thank you for the time and
effort spent, trying to make them better citizens and more worthy of the title
. . . adulthood. y
So to you Morral High, the class of "56" says thanks, in our small way,
thanks for everything.
