We, the students of 1950, wish to dedicate this annual
to Mrs. Shaw, our favorite cook. Mrs. Shaw has been a
part of Truesdale for five years. She will long be reznem-
bered for her kindness, understanding, and her wonderful
cooking. We hope that Mrs. Shaw will remember all of the
students of T.H.S. for as long as they will remember her.

Senior Class History
ln 1939 the "Truesdale Consolidated" jet plane started on its long twelve year journey
with eleven frightened children as its passengers. They were Charles Barlow, Dorothy
Bolte, Donald Brazel, Warren Clark, Timothy Hoffman, Laura McConkey, Norma Jean
McConkey, Darlene Ohrtman, Merlyn Schramm, George Weiland, and Marlene Weiland.
Mrs. Horlacher at the controls stopped the plane to let off Norma .Tean McConkey.
On the second flight of our journey with Mrs. Horlacher still at the controls, we had
the same passengers with the exception of Warren Clark, who transferred to a country
jet plane, and George Weiland, who parachuted out to take a later plane. Also there was
one new passenger, Phyllis Rohwer, who we picked up in the middle of the year.
Glendora Burbank took over the controls on the third flight of our journey. We lost
Marlene Weiland but gained Jerry Stoltz so still had the same number of passangers.
We continued our fourth flight with Miss Burbank still at the controls but lost three
passengers at mid-year. They were Jerry Stolti, Charles Barlow, and Shirley Johnson.
On our fifth flight our little group had dwindled to five. However, it increased one
when Herbert Roberts hopped on board. We succeeded that year with a new pilot at the
controls, Miss Eulalia Miller.
The list of passengers on our sixth trip included Donald Brazel, Laura McConkey,
Phyllis Rohwer, Dorothy Bolte, and Herbert Roberts. Four new passengers were let on
board. They were Lyle Rosdail, who transferred from the plane "RembrandtI': Roberta
Hassinger and Phyllis Davis, who changed from the jet plane "Newell", and Merlyn
Schramm who hopped back on board from taking a short ride on the "Parochial" plane.
However, we lost two of our regular passengers, Dorothy Bolte and Herbert Roberts.
Miss Miller was guiding us at the controls.
The seventh year of our journey Mrs. Margaret Koch replaced Miss Miller as our
pilot. We lost one passenger, Phyllis Rohwer, who boarded a plane for Colorado, but
were joined by two new ones: June Banks and Phyllis Lloyd.
On taking our eighth flight together we were joined by an old friend, Warren Clark,
who started out on our plane. We had two pilots that year. Mrs. Koch started us out
smoothly but Mrs. Lyle McDiarmid succeeded her at the controls.
Starting out on our ninth year together, we discarded the old plane and a new super jet
plane replaced it. The pilots 1? ? ?l M. H. Noragon, Mrs. Linda Potter, and Francis McCabe
took over the controls. The passengers were Laura McConkey, Phyllis Davis, Warren Clark
Lyle Rosdail, Roberta I-lassinger, and Donald Brazel. We lost Roberta who boarded a plane
for Illinois. We were joined by Merlyn Anderson and Merlyn Schramm.
With three new pilots, I. H. Halterman.and Mr. and Mrs. T. C. McCulla, we flew on
through our tenth year. We had another new passenger, Audrey Terrill, who boarded
from-a "Rembrandt" plane.
Our eleventh flight flew by with Mr. Halterman and the McCullas still at the controls.
On our twelfth and last flight we had two new pilots, Mr. Donald Madson and Miss
Lois Vogel in addition to J. H. Halterman. We lost two of our regular passengers, Laura
McConkey and Merlyn Anderson. The ones that completed the journey were Phyllis Davis,
Audrey Terrill, Warren Clark, Merlyn Scharmm, Lyle Rosdail, and Donald Brazel.
Senior Class Prophecy
The seniors of '50 on graduation night agreed to again rneet in the halls of our old
Alma Mater in exactly twenty years. So here it is May 18, 1970, and I, Audrey Teri-ill,
am again venturing back once again into the dusty old halls of Truesdale High. None of
the sights look familiar, in fact, the whole building is different. It is about ten tizrps
larger. ll was told that they have expanded tt to include Storm Lake, whkh is now a
suberb of Truesdale.J
Wandering down the halls I spy a skinny looking lady gazing with a fixed stare at the
pictures. Yes sir, it's none other than Phyllis Davis. Phyllis is President Manley's sec-
retary. She is not married yet, since she says she doesn't care for men and never has.
Phyl uses her spare tirne visiting older people in mental hospitals. She drives around
in av- old '50 Buick, which her Dad gave her.
The next person to arrive was Lyle Rosdail. My has he changed. Lyle is now an old
man who seems to have no sense of humor and his sour old face reflects the life of misery
he has led. Lyle tells us that he inhetrited 815,000 from a rich uncle in Vermont, which he
lnvested in a cosmetics company. He is married and has two children.
Donald Brazel is the next class member to stroll in. He tells us that he is a bachelor
at the present tllne. lThere are ruxnors that he may znarry the wife of the late President
Stanley., Donald is the owner of the "Jet Cars Inc.". He seems to be quite the white collar
type of business man, with an interest in only richer people. Naturally he drives one of his
new "Jet Cars" for advertising purposes, I imagine.
Arriving ne 'is none other than Warren Clark. It was quite a shock when.a thin bald
man walked in. ouths fell open when he was finally recognized, but we soon recovered
when it was discovered that he was still the same old Warren. He relates that he has
settled ln a small town and is a manager GI a small chain organization. Warren is also
married and ls the father of triplets , all girls.
The last one to arrive of the classmates is none other than,Merlyn Schramrn. I-Ie's
not hard to recognize since he is known nation-wide. He is billed as the second "Bob
Hope". He has his own radio and television shows. When asked the key to his success,
he answered, "I just act natural." Merlyn is married to a. movie actress and they have
two bundles of joy, one 15 years old and the other 10.
Slnce everyone has told of their achievements, I guess that I might as well tell mine
too. I seem to be the only one of our class that hasn't faired very well, but I'm satiifted.
I'm married and have four children. Since my husband is out of work at the present tina,
as usual, I have to take in washings for our living. They tell me that l have changed In only
one way. I am now quiet and reserved,
After we had visited for some time a wonderful meal was served by the Truesdale
Ladies' Aid, headed by Miss Yogel. Mr. Donald Madsen acted as head walter. We were
informed that Mr. Halterman was chief cook.
The meal and visit were enjoyed by everyone and the former class of 1950 wiht back
to their old jobs much refreshed and ready for more work..

The mixed quartet gave their first public performance at the Christmas program
by singing "Deck the Halls". The mixed chorus composed of 31 voices made their way
through the gymnasium in a candlelight procession singing "O Come All Ye Faithful"
and closed the program by singing "Silent Night".
The girls' glee club made no public appearances but they progressed rapidly in
the musical field. .
The highlight of the year for the mixed quartet came with their entrance into the
music contest which was held at Storm Lake.
Truesdaleis' New Auditorium
Truesda1e's new gymnasium and community building was started with proceeds
of a 340,000 bond issue voted in March of 1948. A second bond issue of 315,000 was
voted in October of 1948, after failure to receive bids low enough. The new structure
cost approximately S63,000. Money was transferred from the school's general fund
to make up the balance of money needed.
The building has a seating capacity of five hundred. Only exclamations of pride
have been heard from the patrons who have taken advantage of the seating space.
Many good times have been had at class sponsored activities here at Truesdale
High School the past year.
The Freshman Class and their advisor, Mr. Madson, have given two parties.
The first was a Halloween party in the old gymnasium. They gave the high school
an afternoon of- fun by holding a "Truth or Consequences" show and Christmas
party before dismissing for the holidays, December Z3.
The annual freshman initiation and square dance kept the juniors and Miss
Vogel busy. Initiation was a highlight of September, which made our green freshmen
true students of Truesdale High School. They went through quite an ordeal. The
girls were shabbily dressed tn men's clothes and braided their hair in Z5 pigtails
tied with rags, while the boys wore a girl's bathing suit over long underwear. They
all wore onion necklaces and were the victims of many jokes.
The several square dances were held at irregular times and brought a large
attendance from the adults of the community, as well as the students. The early
dances were held in the assembly. Later the gymnasium was completed and "Sox
Hops" were held so we could continue our dances and yet preserve the gymnasium
floor. The music was furnished by .Tohn Lullmann and Harvey Buckendanl. Callers
for the dances were Mr. Charles Foote of Storm Lake and Mr. Henry Wellmann,
a local resident of Truesdale. '
Several skating and miscellaneous parties were sponsored bv the classes and
provided the students with evenings of fun together.
May we long remember the hours of fun and enjoyment these activities have
Junior Class Play
The junior class play, "What a Family", was presented to a large
audience on December 14, at the new Truesdale auditorium.
Here are a few highlights of the play. Probably you have heard of the
typical Sperry family. Here is Pa fMer1yn Schramml nervous and excitable,
and always in a stew: Ma fLois Roberts, with a saving sense of humorg Ted
fEugene Dierenfieldl a typical college youth with a charming personalityg
his younger brother and sister, Mickey fRonald Craditl and Shirley fMarlys
Frederick! both very important personages in their own eyes: Judy fDarlene
Lullmannl who has seen something of the world beyond their own little
sphere and has grown more or less sophisticatedg and not forgetting Granny
fLorraine Peterson! who enters into all the family with a vim that is not
only amusing but refreshing. Then too, there is Steve Bradford fBil1
Bruggerl a plain but likeable small-town boy, whose social standing is
somewhat below that of the snobbish Eric Van Nuys fLyle Rosdaill whom
Judy met while spending three months at the home of the fashionable
Stanleys. But what a disappointment to the family when Judy arrives home
with the worldly-wise Van Nuys, of whom Shirley is very fond. Steve
takes a back seat for awhile until the true character of the city rival is
revealed. However, Steve remains faithful and loyal to Judy through it
all, much to the disgust of Ted. The family worries along through first
one mishap after another until the very end. I think that everyone that
saw the play said, WHAT A FAMILYII
