D D FADE T
We, the graduating class of 1957,
dedicate this annual to our parents,
who have worked unceasingly to give
us our education. Through our parents
we have learned to look beyond today
and therefore prepare for what is yet
Y We will try to do our best in life
to prove that you have not failed us
as Mothers and Fathers.
' This is one of our ways of saying
' Thank - You W for the educational
ogportunities that you have given us.

senior Class Hi tory
In the fall of l953, Tripoli High School welcomed L6 friahtened
and bewildered freshman to its crowded halls. 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.

E l0R CLASS PRUPHECY
In the year 1977, we see Dennis Olejniczak returning to Tripoli on his
way home from the Rose Bowl where he coached the Iowa team to a brilliant
victory. 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
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
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-
The reunion is over. Everyone has left for their respective homes
except Stanley Dancer and David Kalkbrenner, janitors, who are left behind
to clean up the banquet hall.

A hayride and square dancing refreshed us after a long, but
exciting night. Everyone enjoyed a breakfast which concluded

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.

The Tripoli Panthers played Strawberry Point at the
annual Homecoming game on October 19th. The Panthers
defeated the Pointers with a score of 19-O. The queen, Joy
Eichmann was crowned at the half-time by the king and
captain of the football team, Terry Dreyer.
The Queens attendants were Janet Chapin,Juniorg Grace
Lohmann, Sophomoreg and Ruthanne Joens, Freshman. Ruthanne
was unable to attend. Therefore her alternate, LaJean Slack
faithfully took her place in the royalty ceremony.
After the game a dance followed in the gym which was
attended by many of the students, alumni, faculty members,
and their wives.

eyes, was escorted by Richard Tonne, Student Council
