PROPH ECY The date is May 1, 'l966,.and it is a beautiful day. We find ourselves roaring down Ponca's six-lane highway fin the latest style saucermobile. Suddenly an old, infirm, man comes into view. Peering 'closer we recognize this aged individual as our one-time Superintendent and class, spohsqr, Gerry Ellyson. We stop for a chat and Mr. Ellyson is full of the latest news' of our clgss of '5l. Lowell Cooper and his co-pilot J. Gibbs just broke the round-the-block speed record in their hot-rod. It wasn't'a fairly won record though, as B. J. had to push it part of the way! L, Virginia Riffey has just hadlhfir9first ,book published.

M t T Betty Ann Enders just wana beauty contest and is known as The Beautifulblonde' With The Backward Father! Jerry Beck is modeling ladies bathing suits for the Stylish Stouts Corporation! This seems appropriate as Jerry was our favorite model of feminine apparel back in Ponca High. Bob Rahn is refereeing for lady wrestlers over TV everyday. Patricia Putman has fulfilled her life's desire-running an old maid's home for bachelors! Bill Anderson is the mayor of Martinsburg and is coaching the Martinsburg High School football team. They just defeated Wakefield 70-O! Dorothy Severance is just beginning to recuperate from a very serious nervous break- down that she suffered while getting annual ads ready back in '5l! Jim Lowe and Willis Stading are among the ten best-dressed men of the year and are considered the most eligible bachelors of all time! After eating a very delicious lunch at Esther Kuehler's drive-in on the outskirts of Ponca, we bid Mr. Ellyson good-by and re-enter our flying saucermobile. My, but it's been a busy day and it's about time we left this land of the future and come down to earth. This prophecy may have been a bit far-fetched, but we know that our class is in for a very successful future. Farewell, Ponca High School. Hello, Tomorrow!
