The first year was a daring one involving new ideas, new undertakings and new surroundings. First came the great ordeal of initiation. After that was over they really felt as if they were a part of Nelson High. Who wouldn't after they had had a day of torture by the Seniors: Upon their return the second year they realized they had lost three classmates: Clara Rathbun and Claire Serum, who were working, and Mary Lynn DeMars who had moved to Eau Claire. The Sophomore and Junior years were not especially significant. By this time they were used to high school life. Counting noses at the beginning of the Junior year they found several more classmates missing. Alvern Quarberg was now working at home and Joyce Schamaun had transferred to Alma High School. Daring the Junior year they sponsored the annual prom, the theme for which was "Suddenly It's Spring". Pat Tiffany was elected prom king and he chose Virgal Weisenbeck as queen. Returning to school in the fall of 1949 meant something different. This was their last year of high school. Just around the corner waited their future careers. There were just twelve in the class now due to the fact that Robert Reinhardt had remained at home to work and Muriel Keenlyne was attending Durand High School. Before the end of the first semester they lost another member, Patricia Weisenbeck, who became the bride of Theodore Reinhardt, Jr. Nothing could induce the rest of the class to leave, as they were using Nelson High School as a stepping stone to the greater and better things in life. Indi-vidual Wills I, Ramona Hallock, will my sense of humor to Darlene Jensen. I, Mary Jane Reck, will my scholastic ability to the struggling "Freshies". I, Donna Hulke, will my ability to go steady to Lois Owen. I. Carol Thorson, will my height to Mary Lou Meyer. I, Mildred Fuher, will my dancing ability to Roger Meier and Raymond Reinhardt I, Pat Tiffany, will my way with the girls to Calvin McQuistion. I. Anita Hermundson, will my soprano voice to Valeria Reed. I, Maxine Hermundson, will my boy friends to Evelyn Scharr. I, Elaine Mock, will my curiosity to Donna Benjamin. I, Verle Gleiter, will my disagreeable disposition to anybody who wants it. I, Marvin Heltne, will my shyness to Judy Anderson. 12 Class Prophecy Thunder crashes and lightning strikes. A genie has decided to gaze into his big crystal ball and prophesy the future of the graduates of 1950. We now peer with him into the crystal ball. To our amazement and wonder we observe the following: Mrs. Dwaine Radseck, nee Donna Hulke, is living on a farm in Iron Creek and is the mother of a lovely pair of bouncing twins. As we gaze deeper into the crystal ball we see a terrible blizzard. No sign of life for miles and miles aroundg but wait, we see three figures plodding through the deep snow of Alaska. As they come closer, we see the former Musketeers, who last week were on a hunt in Africa. "Milly" still has Wayne Passe, her high school sweet- heart, waiting patiently for her return. "Mona" is waiting for her divorce papers from Richard Carrels. It seems as if there has been some mix-up over their twins, Junior and James. Of course, you can't blame Mr. Carrels, after hearing about Mona's trip to Chile. "Janie" has started a new book called "The Ramblers in Alaska". After this book is finished, "The Adventures of the Ramblers" series will be published. Critics are prophesying that the latter will stand a good chance of winning the Nobel Prize of 1970. Anita Hermundson, noted soprano vocalist, is scheduled to appear for the umpteenth season at Carnegie Hall, New York. Once again the genie rubs his hand across the crystal ball and we see many more things of the future. Elaine Mock is an English teacher at the University of Minnesota. The genie says there have been rumors of romance between her and a chemistry professor. Pat Tiffany, wealthy chicken rancher, has hired Carol Thorson, as nurse maid for his twelve children. Pat recently acquired a divorce from Virgal Weisenbeck. The genie has his suppositions concerning the outcome of this nursemaid and her boss. Marvin Heltne, recently returned to his home at North Branch with his farnous Brahma bull, Oswald the Great, who won first prize at the World's Fair in New York. Maxine Hermundson, famous cigarette girl, has recently been transferred from the Swift Hotel to the Golden Boot night club in Chicago. Verle Gleiter, President of the United States, has decided to take time out from his nerve-racking duties, to take a cruise to the South Sea Islands. 13 Z' D f .-1 6 W I K Q W 75 'gf , w X., N' -'S ,.--xx J " 65 wm mzm wfw Juniors FRONT ROW: B.

INITIATION PARTY Initiation, sponsored by the Seniors, was held on September thirtieth. At 9:30, the weirdly dressed Freshmen entertained the student body in the assembly.

The high school bus took the students to see the movie "Bad Boy", a story based on juvenile delinquency, at Wabasha.
