Ladies and Gentlemen:
This is Pat McCarthy bringing to you the dedication game of
the new football stadium designed by Don Kinert and built by Robert
Smith Construction Company, in Mr. Pulaski, Illinois. The class of
1950 is holding their first reunion in this year of 1970. As the crowd
gathers we see various members of this class.
Two of the earlier arrivals are Shirley Creager and Norma Love-
lace, co-inventors of the new automatic atomic typewriters. Shortly
behind his sister is Davy Lee Creager, the all Star Pitcher of the Mr.
Pulaski Fans. Entering from the other side is James Turley, maker of
the famous synthetic Stradivarius Violins, used by Arlene Brown at her
concerts at the Metropolitan Opera House. Incidently Arlene is unable
to be here tonight because she is playing a benefit concert for Betty
,Aylesworth's Home for Underpriviledged Millionaires.
The crowd becomes silent as Miss Marilyn Manes, Principal of
M.P.T.H.S., introduces the guest speaker of the evening, Thomas J.
Romer, President of the American Federation of Musicians. As he fin-
ishes his speech he is greeted by a burst of applause, thus officially
opening the stadium. Ah, I see the celebrated Senator Rentschler just
arriving. We hear he has been very busy with his new bill.
The teams appear and the television camsra's under the super-
vision of James Lyons focus on the field.
The Mt. Pulaski team is in fine shape under the coaching of
George Hubbard, who made such a fine showing at Notre Dame.
The official for the game is George Palmer.
, Let us now look for more of the 1950 graduates. We see Bar-
bara Jo McCann, Mary Fields, Ruth Ann Cherry and Dorothy Sams Com-
mercial workers in the Empire State Building. They are laughing at
Charles Schroth's bright new mustache. Clt seems handle bars are com-
ming back. J
Looking at the back row we see three old friends Gerald Haynes,
Dale Delbert, and Robert Ayers. Gerald has recently replaced Digger
0'Dell as the friendly undertaker on the 'Life of Riley' show. He is
employing Dale and Robert as ambulance drivers. We wish him luck, in
his new 'undertaking'.
Now we pause for a word from our sponsor: The Drabing Family
Store, situated in the heart of dear Mr. Pulaski. CRemember John has
anything and everything for the home.D The band takes the field.Could
that possibly be Alan Roos down there playing the coronet? Why yes,
my secretary Norma Johansen tells me both Alan and Robert Copeland have
taken up music for a life's work, and yes, I do see Robert behind that
big bass drum.
Marilyn Myers and her private secretary Geraldine Moore were
also unable to be with us today, because they are in upper Slobavia,
hunting a new type of white rat for Marilyn to use in experiments.
The whistle sounds as the game is ended and a glance at the
score board shows a victory over Lincoln High. This had been a wonder-

hold. He will be missed greatly
DALE DEIBERT a 5'7' senlor,play-
ed wonderful ball this year. He
played in a guard position and,
because of his alertness and de-

scorers. Dale will be hard to
replace next year.
BILL DITTUS played center on this
year's team. He is 6'and a junior

er, good shooting, and style of

lot will be expected of Bill.
TOM ROMER is a 5'5' and a senior
this year. He is a very good ball
handler and played a big part on
the team this year. His team

his graduation will be a loss to

Although the band lost many of its first, second,
and third chair players, due to graduation---it is con-
sidered 'TOPS' again this year.
All the home basketball games found the band
there to entertain between games 'and at the half of
the main game.
Mr. Werntz is planning to send the limit of
solos and ensembles to the contest again this year, ln
addition to the entire band. The record made at the
contests last year was superb!
The band, in addition to playing the usual Home-
coming and Srping Concerts, plans to make a tour to El
Paso, Clifton, and Gibson City in April or May.
