Fancy finding a crystal ball in this deserted
tea room. I wonder if the old gadget really
works. Say, if it does, maybe it would tell
us what some of the old graduates of Mt.
Gilead, year of l95O, are doing.
Rolla-bolla, ball and all that sort and the
haze begins to clear. We see RICHARD BAKER
and his assistants, DWAYNE ROACH and VIC-
TOR DAVIS still laying bricks for the new
school building. It certainly is a slow process!
We wonder how many more are around
Mt. Gilead. There's NELDA WILLIAMS work-
ing at a gas station. A person would think
her husband could support her better than
The scene shifts to the new Morrow County
Hospital, and there we find DORRINE CLEV-
ENGER and KATHLEEN GEAR caressing brows
while BONNY GEYER is still working at Dr.
Their loyal helpers seem to be DALE Mc-
CLELLAND and JIM ROLLER in the local phar-
macy who fill prescriptions. Beside their drug-
store stands the "Bee Hive" operated by HOW-
ARD fTabIes for Ladiesi WHISTON who
employs DARYL GEAR as his manager.
KATHLEEN MOSHER returned to "undertake"
great opportunities in her own mortuary, ably
assisted by DICK OSBORNE while JACK LAN-
CASTER has a summer football clinic at the
The crystall ball shifts to the Union Store
and there we find manager, EDDIE fl worked
up from the bottomi SMITH, hard at work,
and across the street we see a new sewing
shop opened by DARLINE FISCHER and JO-
Down at the post office we see the new
postmaster taking a rest period at his desk.
Yes, BILL MCMANIS is the best postmaster Mt.
Gilead has had in years.
There's a fortune-telling shop on High Street
and in it we find BETTY CLARK and JUANITA
MCQUISTION reading palms.
LORETTA FOSTER bought Tony's soon after
graduation and hired JOHN STEVENS as a
Csodai jerk. SHIRLEY ROOD seems to own the
Capitol Theater, and BERNICE HEIMLICH is
the new Western Union girl.
Now the crystal ball fades, and then New
York appears. There BELINDA STAUFFER and
DOROTHY HOFFMIRE teach toe-dancing, and
DON GALLEHER has advanced to Einstein's
assistant. RAY DUNN manages a group of
chorus girls there. While SUZANNE MOLER
has gained fame as an after-dinner speaker,
VENEITA POWERS had become a well-known

and now he travels from door to door selling
This must have been too much for poor
old crystal ball because it shows a large
expanse of water and then the coast of
China. It's clearing now, and we see a woman
coming out of a hut. Why-it's JOAN RATH-
BURN, foreign correspondent to Tibet.
And now the crystal ball clouds and refuses
to tell us any more of the unseen events of
the year l965.

Finally we are approaching our goal accompanied by troubles and worries
from making the Junior Class Play and Junior and Senior Prom and Banquet
a success. In addition to these social activities we sponsored a dance and also
a class party. The Juniors have participated in Choir, Band, F.F.A., F.H.A., Hi-Y,

Vice President, absent when the picture was taken.
Well, here we are Sophomores already and feeling even more grown-up
than we did when we entered our Freshman year! We ioined new clubs, the
Y-Teens and Hi-Y. Our boys are taking an active part in the sports and are
doing a wonderful job this year. We sponsored two dances. We have learned
to get along well together and have had lots of fun in our Sophomore year.
We want to express our sincere thanks to our advisors, Mr. Clingo and Mr.
Beard, for the way they have helped us this year.
