Leland Coffey Vice President ..«.•••••...»•.. .Leroy Durand Secretary and Treasurer. • .Dale Allen We were grieved to have our admired friend, Rosemary Batty, pass away on January 2. Our class advisor was Francis E. Bailey. We gave the first all school party on October 11. It was quite a success. On September 1, 19h9, thirty-three Sophomores returned to SCHS. At our first class meeting, the following officers were elected: President. • .. •••• .Rosemary Young Vice President . ....... Richard Stahr Secretary. Richard Corby Treasurer. ••••••••••••••••••• .Beverly Moma Our class advisor was Mr. Taylor. We sponsored the all school Christmas Party which was enjoyed by all. After a successful year, we looked forward to finally being referred to as upper classmen. On September 5, 1950, there were thirty-one Juniors. During the year we gained two new pupils, Anne Puckett and Lois Carson. We lost Leland Coffey when he enlisted in the Navy Our class officers for the year were: President. . ... .Leroy Durand Vice President •• . ...... Richard Stahr Secretary and Treasurer. •••.•••••••• Richard Corby Our class advisor was Miss Morrissey. She also sponsored our class play, " Seventeen is Awful Young. " It was a big success. We sponsored the Jr.-Sr. Banquet on May 8 and the trip to St. Louis on May 12. What a trip ! The Homecoming Queen for the year was Carole Jo Brown who represented the class. Beverly Moma was chosen as one of the Varsity Cheerleaders. On September 5, 1951, we started our last year as students at SCHS. The following officers were elected by the class: President. •••••••.•.•• . Richard Stahr Vice President.... Lloyd Clark Secretary and Treasurer. •••••••...•• Richard Corby The class party was held on October 25 Everyone had improved their features somewhat because it was a masquarade. Games were played and refreshments were served. How about those flat tires? We all hope to be able to use the graduation announcements we sent for. These last four years have been happy ones, in most cases, and have gone by fast. SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY We were strolling down Madison Avenue in old Chicago when attracted by a young man who insisted he had something marvelous to demonstrate to us n I have in my back room a wonderful invention I call it the electro¬ television future-caster With it you can pick up reflected light from stars 20 or less light years away instantaneously by the new fast light pickup Thus you do not predict the future, you see it " We were not too sold on this scientific hocus-pocus but were intrigued by the young brain’s earnest sincerity, so we decided to have a look. " Take us forward the limit of 20 years then,” we said ’’I ' ll focus you on Centaurus, " and we heard the whir of machinery We sat before a yard square screen which suddenly flashed with an errie purple light and then to milky white Suddenly a picture burst onto the screen The Marque of a theatre came plainly into view and on it we saw the name of one of the most famous movie stars in the world, Beverly Cochran. Then as suddenly as the picture appeared it faded away and one after the other we saw many scenes reacted before our eyes Now we see an old man selling newspapers and magazines on the corner of a busy street. It proves to be Donnie Blakeman. Then we were taken to Madison Square Gardens where we witness a highly publi¬ cized wrestling match. Immediately we recognized one of our old school mates known to the public as " The Blond Tigress’’ but to us as Peggy Carpenter. Glancing through one of the newspapers on the rack we are happy to learn of the fortunes of many of our former schoolmates A column in the newspaper, " Advice to the Lovelorne " is edited by Joe De- Michael • We see an ad for turkeys and are surprised to find that Rosemary Young is owner of a Turkey farm We see a picture of Lois Carson and Anna Marie Tirey. Lois has become one of the most famous designers of fashions in New York and has employed Anna Marie as a model One of the headlines tells of a secret discovery by Charles Guthrie for Dupont. Charles is now a famed chemist Now we are taken to a scene centered around a happy, though large, home Here are Mr and Mrs Lyle Swigert. Mrs Swigert is the former Anne Puckett now the mother of twelve children The next scene is that of a busy city block. One building is a beauty shop owned by Carole Sue Williams. It seems that she has become an expert on dyeing hair Next to this building we are amazed and rather shocked to see a Bookie Joint owned by Chester Hodges and Lloyd Clark. Carole Joe Brown is their most regular customer. Across the street we see another schoolmate ”Duck Durand”, the owner of a tavern. It seems he is having trouble with his latest torch singer, Jo Ann Bode. Coming out of Durand ' s Tavern we see ex-millionaire, Richard Bollinger. He has lost all his money in a card game in Florida and is now a bum. We hear music and looking down the street we see a circus parade. Richard Stahr is advertised as the World ' s thinnest man. W e change to a scene in Carnigie Hall where we discover a recital being given by Richard Corby, a great concert pianist. Arlene Sailsbery is Richard ' s booking agent. In the audience we see Carole and Jean Lee. They seem to be doing quite well as society ladies. The scene shifts to oriental China where we see Irene Fry and Eula Brown. They are both quite happy as missionairies. Another change and we are taken to a cattle ranch in Texas owned by John Curtin. Charles Burnett is employed as a cow hand. After this the amazing young man tells us that because of this intricate mechanism of the machine he can run it for only a short period of time. We thank the man kindly and depart with ever lingering thoughts of our former school mates. SENIOR CLASS WILL We, the class of 1951, realize that our fun has ended and that the hour of our departure is near at hand. The bitter doses of lessons we have taken have hastened rather than prolonged our class demise, and being in full possession of alert minds and memories that put the most extensive encyclopedias to shame, we do make this our last will and testament.

Luckily, there was no freshman initiation this year. At our first class meeting we elected the following officers: President, • • Vice President Secretary, . • Treasurer, • . •Terry Poriez • Helen Clark •Connie Batty James Meridith There were four freshmen girls who tried out for cheerleader. Most all the freshmen boys went out for sports. Many freshmen girls were in girls chorus and a few freshmen were in the band. After a few dances the freshmen began slowly to leave their chairs on the side lines and learn to dance. We attended some hayrides, invitational parties, and weiner roasts. We have two new pupils this year. They are Ralph Dude and Thomas Black. Before long we will be called silly sophomores instead of green freshmen. ' Firs . Stahr, L. Swigert, R. Poiriez.

Twenty-three boys reported for practice; eight freshmen, four sophomores, five juniors and five seniors. We got off to a bad start by losing our first 3 games to Niantic, Macon and Morrisonville Niantic and Macon were league games. But after these three games we won six games in a row. After these games there was a four-way tie for first place in the Macon County League. We had a play off at Decatur at the Johns Hill diamond. We won our first game in the play off by beating Niantic 7-2, but lost the second to Warrens- burg, £-0. We think we had a pretty good season with seven wins and four losses. BATTING AVERAGE Name AB.

We placed fourth in the Meridian Conference with a 7 won and 5 lost record. In non-conference games we had a 6 won and 2 lost record. We had still more success in the tournaments, playing in the championship game of two tournaments and in the consolation game of another. The team scored 1672 points in 30 games for an average of 56 points a game. Of these 1672 points U52 were free throws and 610 were field goals. Our second team had an excellent record also.

Wonder why Mrs. Ducy tried to pretend she didn’t know part of the Stoningten students. OCTOBER 5 The first all-school party was sponsered by the GAA. 12 The Junior class presented their play, ’’Junior Prom.” It seems that Miss Morrissey had difficulty keeping the attention of two of the actors during rehearsals. 25 The Senior class party was a masquerade in honor of Halloween. There were quite a few clean faces after they tried bobbing for apples. 26 Grade cards came out for the first six-weeks. ”Egads l Wait until Mom and Pop see this.” 3 The Senior and Sophomore English classes went to Edinburg to see the movie, ’’Macbeth.” Some of them were still shaking -when they got back.

JANUARY 3 Joy, joy, school began again. 5 Stonington took second place in the Meridian tournament after losing a thrill¬ ing game-to Blue Mound. 9 The little man with the big camera came to take group pictures. 13 The basketball team temporarily lost three players. How was the coon-hunting, boys? 2h Semester exams left many feeling limp. 30 We all said good-bye to our science teacher, Mr. Pankey, and hello to his suc¬ cessor, Mr. Kay. FEBRUARY 1 Again—grade cards. Enough said. 8 We iron our Homecoming game with Moweaqua by a close margin of two points. 12 School was let out as we all celebrated Lincoln ' s birthday. 29 We won the District tourney and the right to go to the Taylorville Regional by defeating Macon. MARCH 6 There were two very red faces as a couple of girls tried to ride up-town on a bus which just doesn ' t go that way. II The S Club enjoyed their annual chilli supper. 13 There were a lot of full tummies after the FFA banquet. III Grade cards came out again. " Enough is enough of any bad thing. " 15 The soloists went to the district music contest. 25 The FHA tried something novel in a " Daddy-Date " night with the fathers escorting their daughters. 28 The S Club sponsered an all-school party. APRIL 8 After quite a lot of work and not a little fun, the Senior class presented their play, " Summer Rash. " II Good Friday and no school.

MAY 3 The FHA sponsered the spring formal dance in the gym. 6 The track boys cometed in the Mid-Plains tournament. 7 The band had the opportunity to show off their new uniforms at the band festi val in Kincaid. 13 The Junior class honored the Seniors with a banquet. 17 The Juniors and Seniors took their annual trip. 23 Many students received their letters and other awards at the award assembly. 25 Baccalauereate was held in the high school gym. 26 Final exams. " Hurray, I passed l Commencement, here I cornel " 30 Commencement and the Seniors closed the doors on four wonderful years. On February 8, 1952 after a victorious basketball game with Moweaqua, Anne Puckett was crowned " Homecoming Queen " , by Carole Jo Brown, queen of 1951 Anne was chosen from a field of twelve contestants by a penny-a-vote contest The members of the court and the new queen were escorted to the flooded throne, where Carole Jo was seated. Leroy Durand announced the contestants as they entered and Richard Corby played the processional and fanfare Mary Doyle, flower girl, and Johnny Marucco, her escort, led the Queen to her throne Anne Puckett was escorted by lyle Swigert Mary carried flowers and a gold basketball for the queen and each of the contestants. The members of the court were: Carole Ann Brown, Junior attendant, escorted by Jack Kerwin, Pat Corby, Sophomore attendent, escorted by Donnie Blakeman, Helen Ann Clark, Fresh¬ man attendant, escorted by Jimmie Meridith, Lois Carson, escorted by Lloyd Clark, Rosemary Young, escorted by Chester Hodges, Darline Blome, escorted by Richard Stahr, Dorothy Vincent, escorted by Keith Swigert, Connie Batty, escorted by Cloyd Staples, Alice Carpenter, escorted by John Curtin, Barbara Williams, escorted by Donnie Swigert, Nancy Cook, escorted by Fred Brown. The next event of the evening was a cakewalk, followed by a dance. The cake walk was very successful and the dance was better than expected since the juke box failed to play. We were fortunate to have some musician in the crowd. We are proud to be able to say that the third Annual Homecoming was a success and hope that the event will continue to be one of the high lights of the school year. , vj U D CAST SENIOR AY CAST First Row: P.
