The seniors lost no time getting us accuainted by giving an initiation party and dance. During our four years of hiqh school we held several roller skating and hayride parties. One of the'outstandinq events of our junior year was the first all-school Christmas party which we sponsored. The program included skits, games, and dancing. Everyone had a chance to go formal at our Junior-Senior Prom. The gym was beautifully decorated according to the theme 'Garden of Friendshipn. After the dance we changed to less formal clothes to enjoy our all-night party. Original floats have resulted in a prize each year at homecoming time for our class, despite the fact that our freshman float was damaged and had to be rebuilt. The memories of Tripoli High are too numerous to mention, but the friendships gained will remain forever.

He stopped at Terry Dreyer's gas station and was met by Jim Kings- W, bury, the mayor, who invited him to attend a reunion banquet of the gradu- ,fiq ating class of l957. All 37 seniors were able to attend the banquet except Ronald Sommer- felt and Roger Drape. Roger, who had the ambition to become a great singer, ended un in Sing Sing, and Ronald is the renowned president of the United States. His private secretary, Trudy Nerge, however, brought a personal message from the president. A delicious dinner was served by the woman's organization of Reverend Larry Busse's church. Shirley Laube, president of the organization, was head of the food committee. During the meal, Joy Eichmann's famous all-girl orchestra and chorus provided music and enter- tainment for those present. Carol Blume, editor of the fashion magazine WEighteenn, wore a latest Paris creation. The honored speaker of the evening was Miss Jean Biermann who is the representative of the United States in the nBig Fourn conference. Among the interested listeners was Kenneth ,gg Rettig, president of the Srebreg Baby Food Company. At the conclusion of the " speech, Barbara'Bany, who has won national fame as a singer on WUncle Lien's Hillbilly Hayriden TV show, entertained with a few songs. A humorous reading, WHow I Became a Millionairen was given by Oscar Kreis. A trio called the WTwo Sharps and a Flatn, composed of Marvin Westendorf, Larry Struck, and get Lloyd Kuker gave imitations and sang songs. . ,..,. f gifs- During the banquet everyone was wondering who the gray-haired gentle- is 515 man sitting at the head table was. They found out later, to their great Wgffg surprise, that it was Mr. Casey, their senior class sponsor. 'Y Elaine Haverkamp, a society leader, gave a coffee and informal recep- , tion after the banquet to give the people a chance to become reaquainted. Among those present was John Axon, a famous inventor, who developed a new T method that makes stop signs impossible to pull up. At last we can shut Duane Judisch off, as he has taken over radio station Y A K. Lorraine John- son is head meat cutter of Tripoli Memorial Hospital. Ralph Bolte, a well-known novelist, used his many themes written in high school as a basis for his latest book. Barbara Bockhaus, after many years of struggle trying to get through college, has become the house mother of SLOB fraternity of Yale University. A prominent lawyer, Yale Kramer, has been busy defending himself in court for evading income tax laws the past five years. Marvin Gatch is still going to college, taking advantage of the many scholarships he earned during his senior year. s' After the reception, Jerry Snelling's taxicab service furnished free transportation for those wishing to go home that evening. Leonard Stumme, TV entertainer, and Joyce Peters, Jolane Tegtmeier, and Sherlie Sauerbrei, ir dancers on his show, returned to New York for rehearsals. Marian Blasberg, Q wife of the towns most fabulous millionaire, invited Shirley Sievers, the spinster librarian, and Myrna Schwem, a ballet teacher, to stay with her its ah A... that evening. The ladies became hysterical when Vic Kimball, king of the as ,:f hoboes, broke into the mansion in an attempt to steal some food. Darlys rag Buls, Marian's maid, has a hard time calming the ladies. -i rss- 'Mk SR' S si kai The reunion is over.

I l'I'l 'l'l0 After waiting for four years we finally got our chance to initiate the freshmen. The boys wore midriffs and a skirt upside down with the zipper closed. The girls wore a sweat shirt and their fathers overalls inside out and backwards. Boys and girls alike wore an excess of make-up. By this time the freshmen thought they could find their way around, but they soon were lost when led blindfolded around the schoolyard and into the gym. After performing stunts and doing exercises they were paired off for the first dance. They had the privileie of dancing with an orange between their necks. A lunch concluded an enjoyable evening.

These were the cries heard through the halls of THS the week before Feb. 15. Student Council members sold thousands of votes which were cast in the WSweethe1rt Ballot Boxn at the end of the hall. Why? On Feb. 15, the first annual Valentine Sweet- heart Ball, under the sponsorship of the Student Council, was to be held in the Tripoli High School Gymnasium, and at that time Kiss Valentine Sweet- heart of 1957, picked by the students at a penny a vote, was to be announced. Feb. l5 rolled around and the gym, beautifully decorated with red and white hearts, becwme alive with guys and sweethearts ready for a night of fun. At 7:30 the dance floor started to fill as the couples began dancing to recorded music, until 8:30 when the nTen Teens,W a band composed of THS student under the direction of Marv Gatch played their'theme song nSunset Soliloquy.V Finally the big moment arrived. Marv Gatch, representing the Student Coun- cil, announced that the Valentine Sweetheart was Miss Suzanne Niemeyer. Susie, a l6 years old junior noted for her light blond hair and sparkling blue eyes, was escorted by Richard Tonne, Student Council member, to her chair of honor while the music of UMy Little Angeln was played. After being crowned as reigning Sweetheart of the Ball and presented with a gift, she and Richard danced the first dance to the song NA Teenage Prayer.N It was announced that a special edition of the Tee Pee would be dedicated, and in part devoted, to hiss Niemeyer. After this everyone started dancing as the HTen Teensn played everything from rock n 'roll, the bunny hop and the hokey pokey to music on the smooth and dreamy side. At intermissior refresh- ments were served. The nTen Teensn started things moving again after intermission and played a number of popular sonas before they ended with their theme. More dancing was provided by recorded music and this brouaht an end to the successful first annual Valentine Sweetheart mall. Sweetheart Ba it S !
