I picked up the evening edition of the Neoga-Trowbridge paper, and started to scan through it. A column on the front page caught my eye. It. read: This Is Your Life seen each Thursday night from 8 to 9 P. M. on NTBS. This Thursday May Z6, 1961 a special feature broadcast will be seen in honor of the class of 1951. Suddenly I realized that this was May 2.6. I glanced at my watch and noticed it was 8 o'clock. I switched my radio on NTBS. This is what I heard. This is your Master of Ceremonies Dick Grisham. We are bringing before you the president of the Class of 1951, Charles Roy, who is now the president of the International Har- vester Co. in Neoga. We are honoring him by bringing him up to date on lines of his classmates of 51. First, Charles, do you remember our old buddy Don Stewart who is the owner and manager of the Neoga-Trowbridge Airport? His test pilot is Jim Deadmond. The last test Jim made left him in the hospital for four months. He was testing one of Don's newest inventions, the space rocket, and since then Don has temporarily quit inventing things. I bet you couldn't guess who their secretary is? Yes, none other than Pat Bushur who teaches Music as a pastime. Bill Wente is now the head of the Neoga-Trowbridge Nuisance and hiswife, Mary Ann Schutte, is his private secretary. In order to solve the delivery-boy shortage they are raising their own staff. Now here's the industrious type! Carol Jones and Doris Hagan are personnel managers of Koester and Hatten Mfg. Co., makers of ping pong equipment. I suppose you remember the captain of the basketball team, Earl Price. He is now married to Christine Pugsley and they are raising off-springs, namely, Einie, Menie, Minie, and Elsie they didn't want no Moe. Charles Price is now married to Barbara Moore and is spending all his time doing research work on, "Keeping Your Permanent Teeth Longer." He always says, 'When these are gone the re aren't any more." Did you see the new telephone office being built up town? The Anderson Con- struction Co. is building it. It's to be managed by Frances Shroeder. Oh yes, Donna Fort is now operating a Nursery Home with Maxine Walk as her assistant. You remember the managers of the basketball team, don't you? Well, Richard and Jack are now the managers of the' U. of I. basketball squad. Ida Jane Andrews is head of the Home Ec. Dept. in the Neoga -Trowbridge Uni- versity. You cou1dn't guess who the Principal is! None other than Nancy Lawrence. Roy Walk is now working on his farm trying to support-his wife, Betty Beals, and their family. Bill Clark and Juanita Patrick are now settled down in their quaint little cottage in Trowbridge. Mary Ann Hartke and Phyllis Wilson are singing commercialsfor the "Amos and Overmeyer' comedy program heard daily over this station. Rosemary White is operating the Lonely Hearts Club. Her best customers are Harold Tipton and Roy Strohl. ' s .9 Oh yes, Harold Starwalt is now the most prominent doctor in Neoga andBarbara Fry is his Nurse. Well, Charles, we can see you are surprised at the turn-outs of your classmates of '51. Our time is nearly up and I want to thank you all for being present at this program. At'the conclusion of this program, Fern Nichols, my wife, and I invite you to spend the evening at our ranch type home. 19 ll Nanil ll ,I , Qing Q: ....

If we have made a contribution through these pages in causing parents and citizens to take notice of the situation and act ac- cordingly, our efforts will have been well cilities which will give future students im- proved educational opportunities over those that we have had. We realize that during our four years in high school many im- provements have been made. However, these have been mostly in areas other than improving the physical facilities. The fa- cilities are our handicaps at present.

Credit for improvements must go in part to the efforts of the Board of Education in planning and spending in an efficient manner. President Carl Wilson, Secretary Robert Woolery, with mem- bers W. D. White, Richard Peters, Clayton Doll, Nathan Stewart and Rex Haskett have taken an active part in seeing that the needs of the Unit are met to the satisfaction of all concerned. This re- quires much time, energy and patience, but the members are a non-complaining group, and because of their interest inthe school and youth, they respond wholeheartedly. On visiting the various attendance centers in the Unit, we find that inside rest rooms have been constructed at Trowbridge and Etna during the past summer. These were badly needed and were appreciated by both students and teachers. Additional playground equipment has been erected at the Etna and Neoga GradeCenters. Libraries at all centers have been improved by purchase of several sets of encyclopedias, reference books, and reading circle literature. Social science departments were helped with the pur- chase of up to date maps and supplements. An additional bus was purchased to further improve the trans- portation.system within the Unit. Everyone recognizes that school is not a stationary processg we never reach the point where improvement cannot be made. The Board recognizes this fact and is continuously striving for im- provement at all times. . A need that is seen at the present time is additional space for Basketball, Physical Education, Agriculture, Farm Shop, Music, and Cafeteria at the high school center. At a meeting held in the fall, several patrons proposed a new addition be built for use as Gymnasium, Physical Education, and Music. and that the .old gym be remodeled to .houseuthe Agriculture Department, Farm Shop, and Cafeteria. We of the Class of 1951 heartily indorse this proposed building and remodeling program, and hope that it canbe completed in the near future. 64 , N. K MM M w 29 ewfdnv- 65- .2 S gglig .. Q ' ff Egfr.
