We, the Senior Class of 1955, dedicate this annual to the memory
of Virginia Sutherlin, a girl whom we all miss greatly.
Virginia first came to this school in the first grade and then left
in the fourth grade. In her freshman year of high school she came
back to New Winchester. Finally, in her sophomore year she moved
to Greencastle where she attended school until her death not long after
During her time here she made many friends who will never
forget her. Her smile and friendly greeting are missed by all who
knew and loved her.

There were many ups and downs and we were happy to see summer vacation come. Whet the

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
Well, here I am at a class reimion of the class of 1956. Why there is Mrs. Bowmanl She
was our class sponsor.
"It's good to see all my old students. l've been wondering though, what happened to the
graduation class of l955," says Mrs. Bowman.
"Come to think of it," says I, "We've all been wondering the same thing. Wonder how we
can find out what happend to them?"
"I know," says one of my former classmates, "there's a good fortune teller in the city.
Let's all go visit her and seeif she can help us."
So we went. She was very nice and said she would do her best to help us. So, she got out
her crystal ball,and things started happening.
As we look through the crystal ball, we see a bright image appear. with great wonder we
take a closer look and discover the "Crouch Electrical Company." LARRY CROUCH has now
become a millionaire and is planning to mar ry Debbie Reynolds next spring.
Next we sight a dim image in our crystal ball which turns out to be the former HELEN
STEVENSON. After attending Central Business College in Indianapolis, she married a very suc-
cessful and quite wealthy singer. They now live happily with their two lovely children on a 380
acre farm five miles from New York.
Not far from Helen's home we discover the home of JAMES ROBERTSON and his wife, the
former BARBARA WEBSTER. They live in a large two-story colonial house on a 501 acre farm.
They are very proud of their twelve wonderful children.
Next appearing in the crystal ball is KENNETH LEONARD. Kenneth is the head manager
of a large chain of grocery stores. He is very happily married to a lovely wife, and is the father
of four fine children.
We now sight JOY PLUNKETT. She is established as the head nurse of the Mayo Clinic
and is contemplating marriage to one of her former patients. He is a rich and handsome depart-
ment store owner from New York.
Next appearing in the crystal ball we see the former RALPH PETERSON who is now King
Ralph of Siam. He is so popular with his harem of lovely young girls that he has decided not to
marry for several years.
Next we discover NED KURTZ. After his graduation from Purdue, he became an engineer
with the Ajaz Construction Company. Ned is married to a former wave of theU.S. Navy and
they are living in a big colonial home in Florida. They are the proud parents of three children.
Appearing next in the crystal ball is DARREL SMITH who is a big-time farmer in Kansas.
He is married to the former MARGURETTE LAYNE. Darrel and Margurette are raising two
wonderful sons. Some day Darrel will have some good help on the farm.
Looking through the crystal ball we now see Captain RAYMOND TRENT on duty at Camp
Kelmer, New Jersey. He has been in the army for a number of years, and is now drawing a
good salary. He is considering marriage to Marilyn Monroe now that she is free for remar riage.
We wish him the best of luck.
Now we see in the crystal ball, HENRY MCGAUGHY. He is a big-time cowboy in Texas.
He owns twelve ranches and has three thousand head of cattle. He is married to a beautiful lady,
and they have seven wonderful boys.
A new figure emerges in the crystal ball. It is CAROLYN J EFFRAS who is now a success-
ful model at Macy's Department Store in New York. She is looking forward to a great career in
Appearing next from the graduating class of 1955 is Mrs. Frank Plunkett the former
PEGGY STOWERS. They married a year after her graduation and are now the proud parents of
a set of twins. and three other lovely children. She was the former secretary of Vice-President
Next to appear is the former MARY JANE NICELY, who is living in Indianapolis. She is
married to Kyle Russell. and they have a chain of restaurants. Mary Jane and Kyle are the proud
parents of six children.

For the seventh year we are organizingliappa Pi Beta to honor journalism students.
Rigid requirements have been established and must be met in order for a student to
attain membership. Evidence of loyalty comes in the spring when KIIB conducts the
annual All-County Amateur Contest. It requires work--hard work. But reward comes in
the form of fun and food as members and guests feast at the Razz Banquet.
