Eleanor after completing two years of education at an lowa college taught on an
Indian Reservation in Oklahoma for five years, As you know on the Indian Reservation
they don't live too highly, so Eleanor saved her money, dawned her warpaint and took
off for Edmunton, Canada to look over the oil fields and prospects. This is where she
met her fiance who is a wealthy oil man, She brought him to the alumni and announced
they would be married at the White Oak church.' Many people from Thornburg and
Canada are to be invited, She will be the last girl in the class to get married,
We are happy to learn that these Seniors of 1952 are progressing so well in this
world of today. Good luck to you in the coming years,
We, the class of 1952 of the city of Thornburg, county of Keokuk, and state of
Iowa being of sound mind and memory do hereby make, publish, and declare this to
be our last will and testament.
Leroy--his ability to be quiet in study hall to Keith Geyer, also his errors in
typing to the oncoming Seniors and his ability to keep the car under 45 m.p.h. to
Dolores--her lame leg to anyone who likes to go to the hospital and her ability
to stay home on Saturday nights to Ronald Cranston and her ability to play basket-
ball to Norma GL ,
Mary Ann--her height to Nadine Merz and her ability to drive a car to Marilyn
Utt also her ability to play basketball to Keith Tish.
Beverly--her ability to play the piano to Harvey Calvin and her little br other
to Donavon Musgrove,
Eleanor--her laugh to Glen Grimm and the old school yells to the cheerleaders
also her discarded boy friends to I-larriette Grove,
The Senior Class members will their dignity, their excellent grades, and their
wholesome attitude toward school to the underclassmen,
Class Prophecy ,
In the year of 1962, our class fclass of '52, met in New Orleans, We were all
excited about our reunion and were eager to know what happened to each other after
graduating from old T. H, S,
The only boy in our class, Leroy Clark, was the first to arrive at our rendevous,
We were really surprised to learn that Leroy had been in the Air Force after grad-
uating from T, H. S. and had come back loaded with many medals, While he was
serving our country he met a girl from What Cheer, who was a WAF. They met in an
airplane hangar, which always proves to be romantic, They were married and both
returned to civilian life in Thornburg running a chain of grocery stores, Say, we
almost forgot that they brought along their two children to our alumni meeting,
Thornburg has really grown since our high school days, The high school is now
used for a grade school and a new high school has been built, plus a new gym,
fbiggest in the state, which Coach Nelson dreamed of in biology class, Mrs, McCracken
is still the commercial teacher in T, H, S, and she still lives on the farm east of
When Dolores and Mary Ann arrived in New Orleans, we went to the dock to meet
them. They had come to New Orleans from a trip around the world, They both
graduated from the nursing school in Ottumwa. After graduating, Dolores went to
Mayo's Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and there she became superintendent of nurses,
She met a surgeon one day in the operating room and they weresmitten immediately
while they were removing our old superintendent's fMr. Cullen, appendix, Yes, Mr,
Cullen is still Superintendent at Thornburg, One highlight in our meeting was to find
out that Dolores was the first girl in our class to get married, though she always said
she never would be, '
Mary Ann as we have said graduated from nursing school in Ottumwa, She
joined the Army Nurses Corps and after four years of service she became a
Colonel, She resigned and became an inactive reserve after being the head of the
nurses at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington D,C, She met a British Earl and after
a year's romance they became married, They met Dolores and her husband in
Australia where they finished their trip around the world to New Orleans.
Beverly, our gal who lived on the mud roads, didn't stay there after graduation,
She went to Chicago and obtained a job working in Marshall Fields department store
as a secretary to the president, One day while she was riding in an elevator in the
store, she dropped her purse and of all people who should pick it up but a former
college friend, They took a liking to each other and after a year's romance they were
married, On their honeymoon they journeyed to the Carribean and after a two weeks
cruise they settled down to a happy life in Chicago, They brought their triplet girls,
Eleanor, Dolores, and Mary Ann with them.

We, the class of 1952, wish to give special recognition to our
school board for the work that makes our school system possible,
Though they do not receive the thanks they deserve, we want them
to know that we realize that they are primarily responsible for
making our "school days" possible.
