Noble Malott has been connected with
Tunnelton High School in some capacity for
the past fifty years. He represents all the
attributes which go to make up sterling
character. As a. small token of appreciation
for his past services and present influence,
we sincerely dedicate the 1950 TUNNELER
to him. This picture was taken while he
served as state legislator.

It has been a proven fact that childhood
ambitions, many times, determine the careers
of high school boys and girls.
As we polish the crystal ball and gaze ,
into the depths we get a vivid glimpse of the A
future. One would never have guessed that , , Q
Tunnelton High School graduated so many "
fine, high-type individuals as these? Ax I
In 1999 we see: X,
Oleta Brown has the leading role in
"Jimmy, Where Did You Get Lost?" It's " 4 .
really a heartbreaker.
Marie Brown still enjoys skating. She k 1'
has just won the Professional Promenade for f
Grandmas. Qt J
Bill Wever has fulfilled his ambition U f
by being a coach at Wabash. Yeah, he has l I I
the catfish shooting foul shots!
Bill Mattox is happily married, but it
seems as if the Plymouth he bought in 1949 is still his sole means of transportation. One
never would have thought Mary to be a gold digger.
Jim Whitted is a speed demon. He can't qualify his Ford in the 500 mile race at
Indianapolis, so Oleta has tied a checkered flag to her mail box--just to make him feel
Dick Sallee is a Merchant Marine. On his last trip he manhandled a whale bare-
Barbara Horner has devoted her life to the publication of annuals. Think of the hearts
you have broken, my dear!!!
Raymond Earl we see singing at the Metropolitan Opera House.
Seems Bob Brown has opened an antique shop. The oldest thing in the house is the
Dale Stevens has invented a contraption to shell peas. Wonder who will be the first
fly in his soup?
We believe Herman W. Collier's initials stand for Heavy-Weight Champion. He KO'ed
his last opponent, Mike from Midgetville.
We see Jesse Reed throwing the towel to someone--could be Collier. We'll know for
sure when the swelling leaves his eyes.
We see Mac in Congress, but he can't decide which party is bestg therefore, he votes
twice on each issue.
Helen still has her beautiful red hair. Seems she's taken to the firing-arms. She
always did want to be a WAC. QGoen to the Armyj.
Wanda Speer is the thin lady in the circus. l'm glad her ambition came true. She
used to say, "My trillions to be thin!"

We, the Seniors of Tunnelton High School, file this will for the betterment
of future education.
First of all, we wish to leave our civics books and our dear teacher,
fisn't he though?l Mr. Moore, to the Juniors, hoping they will have a full year
of perfect misery.
TO-WIT: Here are a few things to be done before this will is executed:
l. Sophomores shall stay in TI-IS at least three more years in order to
grow up before going out to face the world.
Z. Day dreamers in assembly express their thoughts in words so we'll
know what to expect--a Truman, Einstein, Jessup or other great persons
springing from our ranks.
The Seniors will the following things:
Oleta Brown wills her ability to type to Dolores Hughes.
Marie Brown wills her ability to sing to Geneva Allen.
Wanda Speer wishes to leave her naturally curly hair to I une Dalton.
Bill Wever wills his ability to play basketball to Phil Lindsey.
Dean Mclntyre wills his ability to chew gum without getting caught to
Helen Goen wills her ability to draw cartoons to Pat Cunningham.
Jim Whitted wills his ability to drive a Model A to Mike Dorsett.
Herman Collier wills his ability to run the mimeograph to Jeff Allen.
Raymond Earl wills his ability to torment Mr. Malott to Logan Lee.
Jesse Reed wills his ability to ask questions to Betty Shaff.
Bill Mattox wills his height to Iva Elmore.
Dick Sallee wills his red hair to Mary Ann Wilcox.
Barbara Horner wills her ability to edit an annual to the unlucky person who
will get the job next year.
Dale Stevens wills his ability to argue to Willa Mathis.
Bob Brown wills his false teeth to Dale Ingle.
These things being done, we bequeath to all underclassmen our fine high
standards for living the full life.

The Junior Class play, THREE OLD MAID AUNTS, was given November 23, 1949
at the Tunnelton High School gym.
Patsy Murray was a normal girl, twenty years of age, but was constantly brow-
beaten by her three old maid, aunts.
If she was not married by the time she was twenty-one, she would lose an estate
of considerable value, and the money would have gone to the three aunts.
Romance entered the picture in the person of Larry Bell, but it was up to the
"big game hunter", Uncle Ed, to take charge of the situation.
