Every circus has many people on its payroll. If you have seen such a list you have an idea of the number of people it takes to run a circus performance and make every- thing go smoothly.

VAN GORDEN ELEVATOR Feed. Flour. tJ Grist Senior Prophecy Wc must take time out from this busy year to look into the future. With our magic carpet we soon find ourselves gliding through the year 1970. just 2 3 years from now. The first person we come upon is Edna Shaw. It seems that she is driving a new Buick. After being married for 1 5 years Dick finally consented to her driving it. Speaking of cars, here comes Tommy Casler. it looks as if he ' s gone in for bigger stuff than Fords, that ' s a " Rolls-Royce " he ' s driving! And look at that sophisticated man walking down the street, that ' s our mayor Don Anderson. Wc stop at Lewerenz ' s Sweet Shop and see Jeanette Carl behind that soda fountain. She sure must have taken an example from her sisters. If we stop and phone our friend Melvin Apple- yard at his huge scientifically run farm we ' ll find that Joyce Grume is still up there working at the switch board and demanding that we " Deposit a nickel, please. " As we drive out of town we see a garage with a sign reading " Haas ' Body Shop. " Haas must really love his work! A little further on we see a very beautiful farm, when we stop to inquire our way who would open the door but Charlotte Hubing, or rather, Mrs. Robert Jacob. After getting our bearings we drive on and see other farms. That one on the left is where the Bill Madsen ' s live. We hear that they have five children, two with red hair. Over there on the right is the farm belonging to Robert Knoop. He and Ruth surely have been prosperous these last few years. Just down the road where you see that red silo is where Walt Gehrt has his farm. People say he drinks just as much as ever. It ' s too bad we can ' t turn to our left here and see the various farms of other of our seniors, for down that road lie the farms of Raymond Zipfel, Milford Tesmer, Calvin Struensee, Merlon Schoengarth, Norman Moffat, Harold Henninger and Ernie Kissling. As we come into the next town we hear the fire sirens and see the fire truck go by driven by the fire-chief Gordon Hahn. He seems to have taken his nick- name seriously. Gee, there ' s an advertisement for the County Fair. They ' re featuring as special at- traction Lewie Durst and his " Hell Drivers. " As we leave this little farming community we stop to inquire at a large building and are informed that it is a skating rink belonging to a Mr. Volz. As his wife comes out to greet us we recognize our old friend, Kathleen Hall. The proprietor and his wife invite us to watch a private skating party then in session. As we walk onto the main floor we see Leona Wasserburger, oh, excuse us, Mrs. Delbert Langreck and her husband still racing around the floor as they used to twenty years ago. Of course, time does slow one down a bit, you know. Gee, there ' s Loraine Noll, too. She ' s still chasing after that red headed man. Wonder if she ' ll ever get him? Well, we ' ve had enough of this so we decide to take in a movie. As we drive through the streets we see a long line of people in front of the theater. When we finally get seats we see that the movie is entitled " Curvacious Beauty " with Page 17 Betty Marg in the leading role. Not a bad movie! After we leave the movie we see a large sign an- nouncing that Jim Van Tatenhove has become a famous lawyer. He is one of the town ' s most prominent lawyers and his wife does most of his managing. If we were to look in at one of the exclusive beauty shops in town we would see Dorothy Subke assisting her brother in making women more beautiful. There on that corner is a little radio shop where a genius is at work inspired by his faithful wife, the former Dolores Mallory. We never expected her to marry so soon! As we pass a small house we see Ruth Hauge sitting in a lighted window knitting. She has settled down to be a good faithful housewife. If we were to look into the meeting room of the local boy scout chap- ter we would see Don Mattson lecturing to his scouts on the topic. " How I Got to be a Scout Master. " On the outside of town is a beautiful plot of land surrounded by a white fence. This is Eileeii Dahnert ' s horse ranch. She has some of the finest bred horses in the country. To help her in the domestic line are Velda Lewerenz and Ruth Vorn- holt. Velda is doing the cooking and Ruth does the house work and raises dogs. Across the road we see a beautiful dairy. It is owned and operated by Harold Meyer. His good friend, Lavern Zschernitz, is a big executive in the condensery which handles his milk. You would be surprised how many of our seniors are happily married. Don and Elizabeth Mallory, about the oldest of the married crowd, have quite a nice home with a lot of little Mallorys about now. Phyllis Schmidt, another of the old married crowd, is just as full of life as she used to be. Jo Ann Staffon has married that taxi-driver and he ' s still working at his old job. Angeline Marg, too, has finally married and settled down and Gen Menning has joined the ranks of the happily married. Of course, Jan Thomsen, now Mrs. Eggiman, is still having trouble keeping her husband under control. But there seems to be one bachelor in our group. That ' s Dick Thompson. Of course. Honey Strebing is trying her best along that line. Gee. there ' s Tock, too. He isn ' t married either and he ' s still working as a waiter in one of the small restaurants in town. Angeline Thomas is still working for an insurance firm. She ' s con- sidered one of the best dressed women in town. And Gloria Milton can be found taking dictation while sitting on the knee of her handsome em- ployer. Just the other day we read in the news- paper that Miss Aralda Thayer was returning from her mission work in India and will appear in public lecturing within the next month or two. If we were to look at Merlin Jacobsen we would find him still proud of the fact that he finally graduated from High School. There you have our seniors in the year 1970. Some have become very distinguished characters. Others aren ' t so famous but at least they are happy. (We hope!)

Taking part in all the usual school activities is in itself quite a job, but with the prom and class play added it really kept us busy. We really worked hard to make both of these affairs successes which they certainly were. With all the experiences of the past year we feel confident that we can ably take over the job of being seniors.

Going another step up on the ladder of education gave them the comforting feeling of, " now, we are getting somewhere. " Active in almost every division and organization in school and outside of school, the sophomores proved that they are worthy of promotion. The dance we put on in October was a great suc- cess. And our little side-show! Most of us will never forget " Ziggy, " and " The Two Hairless Dogs. " I wonder wno ate one of our dogs, (Robert!!!)

Freshmen We, the class of 50, have started on ' our four year journey through high school and are led by an able group of officers, Dick Tibbett, president; Lowell Gress. vice-president: Pat Mattson, secretary and treasurer. We have among us cooperative and admirable students, especially shown in the part we played in the initiation for homecoming and also furnishing the queen, Elvira Thoma. Our class has turned out almost 100% in all the school activities, dances, etc. There prove to be very promising football and basketball players. All in all we think we have gotten off to a very successful start in High School. The class advisors are Mr. Brown, Mr. Perkins, and Miss Barnes. WARLUM - ROBINSON, INC.

Band Band was on a somewhat different b asis this year, being held every day at a quarter to one. A full credit was given for band this year. Ah, those lucky seniors with those three subjects. Who will ever forget that racing home at noon and getting back right on the dot. And then there are those happy memories of getting back a few minutes late and going after those admit excuses. Such is life! Mr. Keohane certainly did a fine job grooming us for action at the beginning of the year. I really don ' t see how he kept his temper as well as he did. As usual we carried away many honors at the District Tournament at Eau Claire. I am sure that the seniors will look back with much pride and fond remembrance on their days as members of the Neillsville High School Band. x DONATION Parish Dime Store DRS.

The idea behind the club is to get out for the games and really get behind the team. The club ' s activities were helped along by our cheerleaders, Donald Mattson, Carol Wang, Joan Baver, Mary Ann Kintzele, and Gloria Milton. Our officers are Elizabeth Ann Rosekrans, President; Milton Tock, Vice-President; and Betty Marg, Secretary and Treasurer. We held our annual homecoming again this year. Who will ever forget that initiation. And then there were those great Freshman speeches, especially Sheldon Moeller ' s. We had a large bonfire and the senior players gave speeches. Our homecoming parade was rained out, but plenty of work was done on the floats. We did have an exciting game however. Our homecoming dance was led by our king, Milton Tock, who chose Elvira Tomah for his queen. All in all the Pep Club had a very successful year and we hope the activities of the club will continue next year. £$ Page 32 CLARK COUNTY AGENCY Insurance of All Kinds FIRST NATIONAL BANK Member of the F.

The Future Homemakers of America started another year as an organiza- tion of Neillsville High School, this year under the leadership of Mrs. Brown, with 78 members. The FHA is one of our school ' s most active clubs. The year started with the FHA and FFA picnic which was held in the gym because of weather conditions. Later on the FHA and FFA had a Christmas party. We also held a Christmas sale at Lewerenz ' s. Our FHA Annual Turkey Trot, which introduced the school orchestra, was one of the most successful dances ever held at school. In the second semester we had another party to initiate the Freshmen and other new members. We also had a sleigh ride in connection with the initia- tion. We closed the school year with a farewell party for our Senior members. Our FHA will extend into the summer for a camping trip and participa- tion in the fair.

The opening scene is in the living room of Roger Kent ' s country home. Roger is a bachelor around fifty who still shows signs of romance. His niece, Rosemary, who is in her early twenties has many admirers; but refuses to weaken until she has met the perfect man of whom she has read in Jane Perkins ' novels. Accidentally, but fortunately, we meet the author of these novels. Jane manages to settle all the romantic difficulties even win- ning Roger for herself. Alec the young gardener, has never encount- ered anything as baffling as the perverseness of the de lectable Poppy. This wholesome young maid has her ideal man in mind also, but finally weakens to the persistent Alec. Jane Perkins also promotes the romantic lead when she gets Rosemary and Tom Garrick, the handsome young suitor together. The humorous touch is brought in by the two maiden ladies, Louisa and Susie Featherstone, who offer a humorous touch to the play with their contrasting personalities. Louisa, who is the precise and proper sister, whereas Susie presents a light and frivolous character. At the closing scene of the play we find the couples owing many thanks to Jane Perkins, who has given them a successful climax by helping them to understand one another.
