This year's Senior Class departed from tradition and chose the unusual play "The Re-
markable Incident at Carson Corners. " The play, Written by Reginald Rose, was differ-
ent in plot and method of presentation. It required no scenery other than chairs. The
Whole play took place on the stage of Carson Corners' high school. In the play, some of
the students accused the janitor, Mr. Peter Kovalesky, of murder. The ensuing drama
involves most of the leading citizens of Carson Corners.

gift of skis, ski poles, and bindings. The
presentation was made by Marvin Buchholz

The Gage family seek peace in an old farmhouse. There, Mother fLinda Landisb re-
modelscoffee grinders into lamps, while Father fGary Berrethj tries to write a "best
seller" novel in a blitz of interruptions instead of in that country quiet which he sought.
In the blitz, he ignores the arrival of johnathon Rockwood fRichard Gutenkunstj and his
wife Mathilda Qjudy Hardmeyerj, who have the right to live in the Gage house. No one had
worried about that clause in the deed, since the Rockwoods were supposed to be dead.
A contest for possession begins, with neither able to turn the other out. jonathan brings
back the cow Father had saved as a fireman--to stake her on the front lawn. jonathan
plans to hold a funeral of an old acquaintance in the house. During all this time Gage's
lawyer, Mr. Loomis Ulm Kramerj is trying to rid the household of the Rockwood family.
Barbara's boyfriend George Qim Burchamj doesn't appear at the right time, and Barbara
Wiolet Haberstrohj and the RockWood's son Matt CSteVe Grantj go out on an errand of
mercy when a blizzard clamps down. Because Matt has a bad reputation, Frieda fElaine
Weilerj The Gage's maid has resigned from her job. The storm continues and the two
families are isolated. The electric lines fail--and the oil-burner and the range won't
work. Mother forgot the food anyway! ln the freezing house, while the Gages breakfast
on what's left---cornflakes, molasses, and olives!--from the rooms of the unmodern
Rockwoods come gusts of warmth from their woodburner, and the smell of coffee and
frying ham. The Gages rally around Father and his cornflakes and olives, until they
smell the Rockwoods' fresh biscuits! Then they desert Father. He accuses his two small
daughters Sarah CNoreen Millsb and Paula Ganice Domjahnj of being traitors. It even ap-
pears that Barbara has eloped with the Rockwood's son. lt looks like it will end in com-
plete disaster! But Sherrif Carson fDean Kelschj brings the good news that George has
not left town. Uncle Walter CGeorge Hernerj brings tidings of great joy that the Gorleys
had a new addition to the family. The play, presented in mid-April, was directed by Mr.
Dale Magstadt with Ren'e Gilbert as assistant.

DAR representative selected from the crew was Rita Martin.
Led to the throne as Queen of MHS was Evelyn Marthaller, escorted by John Reinert.
The last ball given by the passengers was held on February 4, 1961, the theme being "Black Magic."
"The Remarkable Incident at Carson Corners, " the last and best play ever presented on board the "Abe Lincoln, "
was a huge success.
We made a final check of our passenger list. The following had not remained to complete the journey: Rosemary
Schmidt, Sandra Schmidt, Doris Baesler, LaVonne Frank, Cheryl Mayer, Jerry Rokusek, Claudia Ottmar, and
Vivian Schlosser, Some of our passengers made a transfer -Ritchie Rokusek, Deanne Herner, Ron Schiff, Joe Mitzel,
Terry Manolovits, and Loretta Erhardt. We made one addition--Bob Skogley. 49 passengers completed the journey.
Red and White were chosen as class colors, with red carnations for the flower. As we receive our diplomas, with
the future before us, we shall think of our class motto, "If we cannot find a road to success, we will make one."
