We, the senior class of 1950, want to express our gratitude and appreciation to our school board. They have spent much time and energy to make our school one of the best. Their willingness and interest to let us have as many improvements as possible is greatly appreciated. We also express our appreciation for the selection of such fine teachers, We leave knowing that we have had the best advantages that the school board could offer and we wish greater success for the underclassmen who follow. OFFICE STAFF There is one small but important room in the high school with which most students are familiar, this is the office. The office staff consists of two people -our superintendent and principal, Mr. Waddle, and our secretary, Miss Doro- thy Rudolphi. Dorothy, who was gradu- ated from our school in '48, is serving her first year on this staff. STUDENT TEACHERS We are very fortunate to have two student teachers from Eastern Illinois State College with us each year. This year they were Miss Rachel Baylor and Miss Anna Mary Weiler. They were with us nine weeks observing and teach- ing in the home economics department. - 4 Y N I Yi, U54 wr- , Q X l X.1.fA 1 ' f . 1 - ---ei-fN0r0nLiGl'f,f--l.M MR.

During that year we lost five from our class. Our sponsors were Mr. Bradfield, Mr. Ragland, and Mrs. Rockabrand. Our class officers for the year were Freda Schwartz, presidentg Gene Miller, vice-presidentg Barbara Sager, secretaryg and June Van Blaricum, treasurer. Our representatives on the student council were Paul Berger and Dean Summers. Starting the year of 1947-48 we came back with sixty-two sophomores. During the year we had two new pupils added to our class. Our sponsors were Mr. Bradfield and Mr. Taylor. The officers of this year were Dennis Nettleton, presidentg Bill Patterson, vice-president, Betty Patterson, secretaryg Dean Summers, treasurer. Evelena Runyon and Nova Martin represented our class in the student council. The following year of 1948-49 we had forty-eight to register. This being our junior year we presented a mystery play, "Gangway for Ghosts," under the direction af Miss Kell with Miss Hughes as her assistant. The juniors gave a prom in honor of the seniors. The theme of this prom was "Stardust" We assisted the seniors in sponsoring the junior-senior carnival. The sponsors who helped us with all this were Mr. Brown, Miss Provines and Miss Hughes. The junior class officers were Albert Phillips, presidentg Bill Patterson, vice- presidentg Marilyn Diel, treasurerg and Paul Berger, secretary. Betty Patterson and Jim Wells were the student council members. In September, 1949, forty-five seniors enrolled for the last and by far the most significant term of our high school careers. This is considerably less than the seventy-one we started out with, four years ago. In these four years even though we don't look a great deal smarter we hope we have gained some knowledge. The class officers for this term of 1949-50 were Betty Patterson, presidentg Jim Wells, vice-presidentg and Barbara Sager, secretary and treasurer. June Van Blaricum and Austin Dasch were our representatives on the student council. We assisted the juniors in sponsoring the junior-senior carnival. The biggest undertaking by far that we have this year is the publication of the annual. Jim Wells is the editor with Norene Lutz and Bill Patterson co-editors. With the assistance of many other people we have tried to make this the best annual yet. The class of 1950 in its four years of high school has had a class party each year and three trips to St. Louis. llS3ll'E llNll4DllEnllE5lIl9lllGllFEfl'T15vlD BETTY PATTERSON JIM WELLS BARBARA SAGER F.

The following persons seemed to interest us most: Albert Phillips has climbed to the position of disc jockey for radio station N 0 B L E . Fred Totten is a second Einstein but, being athletically inclined, he still takes his daily exercises. Lorene Lutz is running the Dye and Dry Beauty Parlor which is located on Main Street. Her main customer is Cordia Patterson, a prominent dressmaker in Noble. Paul Berger owns the little grocery store on the corner. His business is rapidly growing because he can always talk his customers into buying the article, even if it is a mouse trap. Betty Patterson is manager of the church activities at Glenwood. Her latest achievement is the removal of slot machines from all the pool halls. Gary Shafer is Noble's hero! He recently won the championship of basketball at the Olympics, which were held in Greenland this year. Marilyn Diel is a successful speech teacher because all her students do in class is talk. They can be heard even in the principal's office. June fVanBlaricumJ and Jim Wells are happily engaged in the business of farming. They live in 9, little vine covered cottage near Noble. Nova Martin is a very efficient bookkeeper for the Push and Pull Oil Company. Alberta Rapp and Norene Lutz have gone to California to see the sights and, maybe, marry movie stars. Dennis Nettleton is farm adviser of Richland county. He likes his job but he still hates to make the speech at the annual Farm Bureau meeting. Bonnie Allison is married and lives south of Noble on a farm. Ronnie Bloehs is a naval officer. He acquired this position by swimming the Great Lakes. Helen Ryker is married and lives near Noble. She now occupies the position of president of Nob1e's Quack and Cackle Club. Lyle Rusk is known about town as "The Greatest Boxer in Fifty Years." He has won the United States championship and is going to try for the world. His present manager is Neil Rutger. 'Barbara Sager has graduated from college but is still seen often on the campus. It is rumored that she is quite interested in one of the professors there.

CLASS PLAYS 'is' Oh, Brother ! Jane wanted a marshmallow sundae, and Paul just didn't have the money. That's what started it all. In trying to get the money, he decides his camera is the likeliest way. So he charges an expensive enlarger to his father's account and means to return it well before the monthly bill arrives, only using it a little-and very carefully. Jane lends Paul her father's expensive camera with a S300 lens to help him out. Well, after ruining the lens with Junior's kitchen cleaner this own inventionb, letting Jane's father sit in a tray of developer, and getting taken to jail for poisoning chickens, Paul feels pretty low. But you know Paul. When the play ends everyone is happy and Paul is the hero. Don't Darken My Door! When a girl reads too many romances what chance has a mere man to win her? Rosemary wanted a lover like the one in "Hearts Aflame" and she had no time for Tom. Her admiring maid, Poppy, felt the same way fin fact, she read the same romancesj, and poor Alec, the gardener, was in despair over Poppy's sudden coldness. Then the author of the romantic books appears. She's a maiden lady with a kind heart and she sets about repairing the damage her books have done. Under her direction, Tom and Alec are soon sprouting romantic speeches and making a hit with the girls. Two fluttery spinsters from the neighborhood keep a thrilled eye on -the romantic goings-on, and even Rosemary's bachelor uncle begins to notice the good qualities of the author he is entertaining Enawarilead The finale comes with an elopement in which everybody as a an .

IHIEH QW 1 9 N013,f,1,1GI13g 50 THE INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURAL BUILDING 'W This building is separate from the main building. It houses the industrial arts and vocational agriculture departments. This building which was constructed mainly from material secured from War Surplus Administration is sixty-eight feet by one hundred forty-eight feet. The shop and the farm shop, each has one large entrance twelve feet by twelve feet. Their floors are concrete and their walls are covered with wall board. The east part of the building is the industrial arts section. This part has a large shop room thirty-three feet by sixty-seven feet, a class room, a finishing room, a storage room, and a planning room. Mr. Murvin Brown is the teacher of this section. The shop I boys painted the large room with surplus paint. The shop also has a new sander this year which was built by the boys for S10 but which is worth 5250. This year for the first time the shop has offered a night class for the adults of the surrounding community. The shop in our estimation is very well furnished. Much of the equipment was made by the boys. The west part of the shop building is the farm shop section. The large shop room in this part is thirty-seven feet by sixty-four feet. Besides this room there is also a storage room, laboratory, tool room, and class room in which agriculture and veteran classes meet. Mr. James 'Clinton is teacher and supervisor of this section. The farm shop was used for the first time this year and all new tools were bought for the agriculture section. The tools installed in this shop are arc and acetylene welders, power drill, and various small hand tools. Most of the shop work and the work of building storage cabinets for the shop tools and work benches is being done by the agriculture IV boys. This whole building is heated by a fuel oil furnace. Besides these two shops there are two offices and a very well equipped projection room housed in this new building. JANITOR We seniors appreciate the help and understanding our janitor, Fred, has given to us. Fred is always offering his help to anybody who needs it. He has been with the senior class all through high school. We would hardly know how to put on a play or a carnival if it weren't for Fred's helping with the lights, sound effects and a dozen other things. Our school is one of the best in Southern Illinois. It has been up to Fred to keep it in "tip-top" condition. Fred not only looks after the school but also helps the cooks in the kitchen and lunch line. LUNCHROOM The lunchroom is the room that most students rush for at the end of the third period. The three familiar faces that we see behind the counter each day are those of Mrs. Waddle, Mrs. Clark, and Mrs. Stephenson. We wish to express our most sincere thanks to these persons who have made our lunch hour more enjoyable and also permitted us to use the lunchroom when we had the concessions at basketball games. I!
