It has been fifteen years since they graduated so let's take a peep and see if we recognize anyone. I see WESLEY SPENGLER. I bet everyone who is interested in sports listens to Wesley's sport news. I see he is trying to get in a good word about his program on the radio. He is the top announcer of sports in the United States atthe present time. We hope that he will stay up here on top of the list. There's famous stylistaf teen-age fashions. I wonder what she is doing here? Oh, yes, that's PAT VAN3EIS0N. All the young teen-age girls adore Pat's creations. No wonder, they are always so pretty and stylish. I bet you can guess who that is withthe black doctor bag. He was always a show-off in high school, and I see he still is. It's HOWARD REYNOLDS who is a doctor at Medicine Lake Hospital. That'3 an appropriate namel There's VARY WHALEN! She's home on vacation from the Pale Face Hospital where she is the staff nurse. Mary tells us that there is a good-looking doctor who would like to become acquainted, but you know how bashful Mary always was. Hi, Joyce. JOYCE WILSON is now a concert pianist, and the social circles are just clambering to see her concerts. Music has always been Joyce'8 great interest in life. Well, at least, her second greatest interest! There's EVELYN MYRICK. She's giving the girls the news about all those good-looking pilots she has met. Evelyn is an air-hostess. She is always uo in the clouds about some guy. Who's that fashion creation. It's MELBA TAYLOR. Melba is the number-one designer of woman's clothes. She's quite in demand by the fashionable women in America. She's wearing one of her creation to publisize her work. We saw KENNETH HANCOCK and his wife, Linda, next. Kenneth is now the owner of the Hawk Hotels which are known from coast to coast. Everyone, esoecially Linda, thinks he has been quite successful in his life. 22Class fliapktcy Next, we sawthat great author and Journalist, VIVIAN LONG. Vivian had a talent for writing way back when she was in high school. I imagine everyone has read her novel, "The Painted Paleface." Here comes that whizzer in shorthand. She was always excellent in dictationin high school that she made therest of us feel like fools. Tes, it's PAT VOTA, who is now a shorthand reporter for the State Court. Who's that guy with the taxi-cab cap on? Oh, yes, that's RAT MCKINNEY1 I guess everyone remembers how Ray startedwith one cab years ago and is now the owner of the "Reds kin"taxi line that is so famous in Buffalo. Who is this person walking with such grace and poise? Why it's HELEN GRUNBY. No wonder, she has such poise, when she is a Pow-Wow model. Helen claims there isn't a love in her life but we don't know. She's sure to meet a lot of interesting people in her career. MAXINE SMITH and her husband, C. P., was the next ones we met. Maxine is now a private secretary in the Government Office where her husband is stationed. Her Office Practice has benefited her in this work. There's JIM RICHTER. Jim is now a large farm owner. He has also done research in agriculture that has improved farming methods. From high school days, most of you will be able to guess who was with Jim. We talked to NORMA JOHNSON next, since she just happened to be close by. Norma tells us that she is a typist in Springfield at the Sioux Railroad Company. Norma has had several promotion since she started working for this company which shows her ability in her career JIM HOWARD, who we saw next, is now a professional basketball player with the Ponies. Jim has been playing on the team ever since they were established. In fact, he heloed organize the Ponies. They have been undefeated for the last three years. WINONA WILSON was next onlhe list. She is forever wanting people to re-decorate their homes. After all, Winona is an interior decorator and she likes to advertise her decorating. There's that famous district attorney from Silverbowthat you read about in the newsoapers. MONICA CLARK tells us that her career originated in Mr. Kruzel's Social Science class in high school. 23Senlais There's LORRAINE CURVEY! Guess what? Lorraine is back in school again. She is a Home Economics teacher at Springfield. Now Lorraine can tell the students what to do. When she graduated, she had no intention of returning to school so soon. There's LOU FORBES. Remember his lead in the Junior play in high school. Well, he has made use of that talent, because now he is an actor. Everyone who has seen him on the screen thinks he looks like Ronald Reagan. There's LOLITA HARBERTJ She couldn't evenleave her baton at home. Of course, everyone has seen Lolita either on television or in the movies. She is widely known for the acrobatic twirling act. Here comes JOYCE SPENCER. She looks like she just stepped out of a dream. No wonder, since she is the owner and operator of the "War Paint" Parlor. Joyce should look like a million dollars all the time. There's ETHEL BALLARD! Her bookkeeping sessions in class has helped her achieve her career. She is now the accountant for the Red-Water Insurance Company. Next, we met that clown from our high school days. It seems that HOWARD LAMB is still playing the clown, because he isnow a professional camedienne. Howard plays in the movie, that has just been released, "A comedienne's nightmare." You better see it. Who is that cowgirl over there? She is the owner of the Nine Mile Ranch where horses are trained for professional racers. Horses were always her main interest in life. You guessed it. It's DARLENE HILL. The day is coning to a close, and the Class of '52 had a perfect attendance. All the old friends will soon be going their separate ways again. Perhaps we shall all meet at another reunionin the near future. But, if we don't we shall always remember our many happytimes together. 24Suniox QIooa From these beloved halls we 11 have to stray When it comes time for our graduation day. Many a memory will linger here Of those old friends and ones so dear. Many a memory of pleasant times will return. And for these beloved halls again our hearts will yearn. All of us will have to go on our separate ways. But always we will remember our happy school days. Many a pleasure in these old halls we have known. And very fond and loyal to our school we have grown. As we travel on down this hard road of life Though we have sorrow, trouble, and strife. We'll find comfort in memories of our old school days That will brighten our dark and dreary pathways. On graduation day our hearts will be filled With many thoughts that cannot be chilled; For all the warm memories in our hearts we will hold Of many happy experiences and pleasures untold. Through all walks of life many storms alone we will weather. But always our memories will be here together. VIVIAN LONGfoMty JutuomJunior CiflficeM. and Sypxmdxvta, President, Joe Lucasj Vice-president, Joyce Bradford; Secretary, Mary Margaret Jones; Treasurer, Glenda Vanzant.

Our class advisors were Miss Galloway and Mr. Smith. We elected our officers as follows: President, Darrell Donaldson; Vice-president, Donna Franklin; Secretary, Gene Sikes. On September 5, 1950, 37 "tribe members" came back as "silly sophomores." Our class advisors were Mr. Ball aid Mr. Smith.

On September li, 1951 33 "big chiefs" came back under the title of "jolly juniors." We met in our "tepee" and chose Miss Galloway and Mr. Fisher as our class advisors. We also elected Joe Lucas as our "chief medicine man," Joyce Bradford as his assistant, Mary Margaret Jones as our scribe and Glenda Vanzant to keep her eyes fixed on our money. The Junior class participated in many activities. In G. A. A., we have 12 members from our class representing us. In chorus there are 17 juniors; in F. H. A., 16 members; in F. F. A., 5 members. Alsothere are 3 juniors taking second-year Latin. (Boyl Are they brave 1) Forth© third year Helen Skinner and Phyllis Smith were chosen by the student body to back our team as cheerleaders. We are also represented by Junior boys in all sports. We have basket ball, baseball and track competitors in our midst. In the fall of the year we put on the traditional Junior-class play entitled A READY-MADE FAMILY. We gave two performances, one in the after noon for the grade school and one at night for anyone wishing to attend. We were quite elated with our success. Our endeavor for the year has been along the line of money-making. You see, in the spiring we put on the annual Junior-Senior Banquet id Prom, the highlight of the social activities of the year. Bren the job of cleaning up did not dim our pleasure in this event. Next year you will see still more added to our record—we will then return as the Class of '53 of Morrisonville High School 32 This page sponsored by morrisonville timesSnapshot Stick Em Up! »Peach’1 Got Stupkl Want A Ride?

But, the "Big Chiefs" entertained them at a party to get them acquainted with the rest of the Mohawk Tribe, so they soon lost their nervousness. At their first council, they elected the following officers: President-Lucille Curvey, Vice-president-Mack Prose, Secretary-Nancy Cummings, Treasure-Carolyn Myrick. Mrs. Robinson and Mr. LeMay were chosen as advisors. On September U, 1951, they again entered the "Big Tepee", but, as"silly sophomores", insteadof "green freshies". Thistime, they were familiar with the "Tepee", so they knew their way around, and were not late for any of their classes. This time officers chosen were: Mack Prose-President, Joyce Millburg-Vice-president, Corothy Armitage-Sec-retary and Treasure. Miss Hanson and Mr. LeMay were chosen as advison Marcella Oiler represents the sophomore class in twirling. She seems to have great encouragement from the other twirlers. The band is also largely composed of members of the sophomore class. This year four sophomore boys are on the basketball squad, they are: Jerry Jones, Jerry Hornbuckle, Donny Minnis, and James Muster. If you saw any of the games you know they rated pretty high. So as "silly sophomores", we say so long until we meet you next year as "jolly juniors." 40 This page sponsored by KeKDiNIE BROTHERS TRUCKINGSnap hotA Backward or Forward?????

At our first class meeting we elected our class officers who are: President, Jerry Beiermanj Vice-president, Shirley Babbs; Secretary, Joe Lamb; Treasurer, Lois Ann Gamer. Our "Chiefs" are Mrs. Robinson and Mr. Kruzel. We may have the title of "green freshies" but you vatchuB and you may be surprised before our four years are up. We have already started to show you a thing or two. We are the class who consistently keep several of our names on the honor roll. We have good representation in almost all school organizations. Several of our members were initiated into F. F. A. and F. H. A. Many of us are in band and chorus and we have one girl oa the twirling squad. The Freshman-Sophomore basketball team, of course, is composedcf people from our class and the Sophomore class. We think these people deserve commendation for their work because their faithfulness to practice so often does not pay off until later years. We were the recipients of an all-school party in our honor sponsored by the Seniors. We think it very nice of them to have planned this so soon after school started because they must have known we were a little scared. Now we are definitely a part of Morrisonville High School for we have made a place for ourselves here. We look forward to returning next year, but as Sophomores.

S. in October, 19L9, and is a member of the Illinois League of High School Girls Athletic Association. The aim of the G. A. A. is to stimulate interest in girls' athletic activities and to promote ideals of health and sportsmanship. The Year's program includes athletic activities, business meetings, social activities, and a money-making plan to pay for the awards and letters, and to pay part of expenses of the camp representatives. The G. A. A. at Morrisonville has participated in the League bowlings and Basket-shooting tournaments, also sponsors a girls' inter class basketball and softball tournament. As a school project,they cleaned and polished all of the school's trophies. Two years ago they provided money for cheerleading uniforms, and this year formed a G. A. A. Pep Club. On October 13, G. A.

The Juniors were in the Home Economics room, getting the finishing touches on their makeup and getting their final and last checkup before going on stage. Hiss Hanson, the director, was nervously waiting for the hour to come Finally the time arrived and the curtain was drawn. The action started when Agnes Martin, a widow, met an old sweetheart, Henry Turner, a widower, and they fell in love. When their two families learn of their plans to marry they plot to destroy the marriage In the hilarious second act, Bob Martin turned into a raving maniac in Mr turner's presence; Mary Lee talked baby talk; Oracle, the youngest of Mrs. Martin's children, pursued her antics as a typical brat It all came to a climax when Bob foamed at the mouth and had a convulsion in the presence of Nicodemus, the colored gardener To even things up, Mr Turner's two children Saande and Doris came to call on Mrsc Martin Doris talked constantly about her operation and Saa-mie showed signs of being a kleptomaniac To top things off Saamie had a murderous fit in the presence of Begonia, the colored maid Still there were more complications 1 Miss Lydia, the old maid sister of Agnes' late husband Horatio, tried to bring Horatio back as a ghost to scare poor Mr Turner After all the difficulty and hardship, everyone got together, including Mr. Turner and Mrs. Martin They were able to finish their plans for marriage. Between the second and third acts Joe Lucas, president of the (Hass, presented Miss Hanson with a compact and a dozen roses as a token ofappreciation from the Class 85Leland and Joyce W Howard R. and Pat Maxine and Helen Gift presentation to Miss Hanson Joyce S Lorraine, Joe, Monica, and Lou Mack and Winona 86Seniai Mai On May 9 the Senior class held its annual class play entitled "In Spring the Sap." It was a three-act comedy written by Guernsey LePelley. The setting of the play was Riverbottom University, and the "Mad" series of events all began when Rockhead McGuire, (Howard Lamb) Riverbottora U's hope for winning the track meet, was confined to the dorm by the faculty for an infraction ofthe rules. With the aid of a classmate, Phillip Dill, the track team manager, (Leland Balsley) put Rockhead in a box and hid him inthe workshop of J. Oliver Twibbly, an 89-year-old inventor, (Howard Reynolds) who was frantically at work completing his "Various Machine" (it did various things). The facultyhsard ofthe strange goings-on and started an investigation. Josephine, a professional girl football player, (Lorraine Curvey) created quite a panic when she proceeded to show the ancient Twibbly some fine points of the game. Phillip, who was scheduled to marry Vickie (Joyce Wilson) stood her up in the interest of the track team. Melville Kadenza (Lou Forbes) had written a poem, "Beautiful New," in honor of the wedding and it became wasted effort. Mrs. Mince (Pat Vota) was the proprietor ofthe Soda Shop next door and was almost out of her mind worrying about the "Various Machine" which exploded at the most inopportune moment. She was also worried about her daughter, Violet, (Winona Wilson) who wanted to capitalize on the wedding postponement by capturing Phillip. Mrs. Mince finally employed Squintin Glower, a hypnotist, (Joe Lucas) in an attempt to win Philip for her daughter. But this scheme backfired when Rockhead was the one who fell under the hypnotist’s power. Rockhead responded immediately to Mr. Glower’s power and for a while was so under the spell that he thought he was a duck. If Mrs. Gerturde Hawley Stickney (Maxine Smith) hadn't falleninto the "Various Machine", things would have been a lot simpler, but from that point on misfortune climbed into the driver's seat. However, as in all good plays, the madly tangled complications we-e straightened out in the end. And even Dr. Matilda Guppie, (Helen Grundy) president of Riverbottom U, was so enthusiastic about the outcome that she offered good old Twibbly the use of the college labs. Pam Broomwell, (Mary Whalen) a pretty co-ed, was Vickie's goodfhiend. Prudence Prim (Monica Clark) was a nurse who took her careerwry seriously. Henry Graves (Mack Prose) was a hearse driver. Susie Mae lounghope (Joyce Spencer) was an eye witness to some strange events which took place Miss Hanson was the director. Assistant Director was Marianna Clower, and the sound-effects man was Ray McKinnie. 87Qxiu t 3staining One of the classes. Learning the parts? Coach LeMay, our instructor.
