SENIOR CLASS Witnesses: --, Principal --, Sponsor CLASS PROPHECY Here it is, a sunny day in 1965. I am making my wa throu h the crowd ' should I bump into but JIM BURNAU, a graduate of 1950. yHe loois like a prosgeriiigobfisiznggsntivalho He tells me that he is the Vice-President of the Cloverleaf Creamery in Huntington Indiana. and is here in New York City on business. He and his wife, a graduate of Union ,also live' happily in Huntington. A voice calls out over the loud speaker telling the next jet-plane that leaves on a pleasure trip. It sounds like a familiar voice, so I being very curious, decide to investigate, and who should I see but DANNY THOMA. He says that he likes his job here at the airport very well. He lives in the Statlor Hotel. He tells me that he is a very happy bachelor. The jet-plane is getting ready to leave so I bid Jim and Danny good-by and hurry to get on. I get a seat in the back of the plane and try to make myself comfortable. Well, isn't that BETTY CRIST in the front of the plane? Yes it is! I wonder why she has that uniform on. She sees me and hurries back to my seat. She tells me that she is a stewardess on the plane. She isn"t married yet but Cedric is still waiting on her. Down below we see a city and Betty says that it is Cleveland, Ohio, and we are going to land. Having an hour to while away, we decide to see the city. As we walk down the street I see a sign in front of a store that says "Warfel's Flower Shop." Now it runs in my mind that the boy ISABELLE BORTON used to go with was named Warfel. I think I had better investigate. As I enter, sure enough, I see Isabelle, waiting on a customer. She seems very surprised to see me and insists that I sit down and talk a while. She has a little blond-headed boy who helps her in the flower shop. She says that her husband spends most of his time in the greenhouses. My time is getting short so I tell Isabelle that I must hurry back to the airport. Back on the plane, I learn that our next stop will be Indianapolis, Indiana, where we will go to the Indianapolis Speedway to see the races. In no time at all we are off the plane boarding a bus, and heading for the Speedway. We get there just in time to hear the racers' names announced. To my surprise, LEO BUNIG-ARNER'S is announced. The race begins with Leo in the lead. We all get a thrill as the race cars zoom around the track. Leo wins and the crowd gives him a big cheer. It seems that he has broken all speed records. I just hope his good luck keeps up, and he doesn't break his neck instead of the speed records. After about fifteen minutes of riding on the plane again, Betty comes to me and points below to a beautiful set of farm buildings. She tells me that this is the home of J. ANDERSON. He specializes in raising hogs, and it seems that he has won many trophies in competing with other hog-raisers. Betty says that he has two sons who help him with his work. In Rochester, Minnesota, we visit the Mayo Brothers' Clinic, and here I find ELLEN OSBORN pushing a wheel chair across the lawn. She is working here as a nurse and enoys it very much. Our plane next lands in Wisconsin near a huge dairy farm. VVe are going to take a bus out to this dairy. From quite a distance, we can see the massive barn and as we draw nearer, we can see printed on the front of the barn, LYNN E. VEAZEY. Lynn comes out and shows us his herd of Holstein cows and takes us all through the barn. After eating a large dish of his ice cream, we hurry back to board the plane. While glancing over a newspaper I discover that RICHARD COUCH has won an award for having top wheat production in the United States. He raised it on his farm in Kansas. According to the newspaper, Dick is a bachelor. I just supposed until now Dick was a married man. I guess his high school romance must have fallen through. I had heard rumors that a couple of my old classmates were living in Arizona near Tucson. After landing in Tucson, I inquired around and I find these rumors to be true. I catch a taxi cab and hurry to a ranch just outside the city. I am greeted at the door by none other than EVELYN GUY and COLLEEN DENNEY. I find they are fulfilling their ambition, to be old maids and raise horses. They have five thousand acres in their ranch and raise palamino horses. In Hollywood, California we go to Warner Brothers' Studios. Here in the office of a well-known movie director a receptionist greets us and I recognize her to be MARJORIE MOORE. Her husband is a famous movie star, a descendant of Gregory Peck. Marjorie directs us to a movie set where GENE POPE is doing photographic work. When he was younger he took pictures for a hobby and became such an expert in his field that Hollywood wanted him. He has a home in Beverly Hills. I told him about seeing all our old classmates and asked if he knew where DEAN CRUM was. He told me that he had seen him recently in Berkeley, California at the University of California. He is their basketball coach. Gene says that Dean is a bachelor but seems to think that one of the old maid teachers at the University is pretty nice. Next we're off to Hawaii, the land of swaying palm trees and guitar music. In Honolulu I find DEAN BROWN. He is a captain in the navy and he tells me that he has a girl in every port, as goes the tradition. He tells me that FRED GEARHART is in Hawaii also.. Fred. once saw a movie about Hawaii when he was in high school. By the way it had Hawaiian girls in it. That helped in his decision to come to Hawaii. I find he is the head of the Dole Pineapple Company and he lets me eat pineapple to my heart's content. This completes my journey as I have now located all my old classmates. I hate to start back home because I've had such a swell time. It's surely wonderful seeing and hearing about all my old classmates. Richard Couch Evelyn Guy Colleen Denney CLASS HISTORY On September 2, 1938, seventeen little first graders entered Miss Martin's room. They were Isabelle Borton, Leo Bumgarner, Jim Burnau, Delia Chavez, Dean Crum, Colleen Denney, Charles Dennis, Daryle Markley, Walter Miller, Shirley Platt, Gene Pope, Max Rash, Elmer Ridge, Danny Thoma, Lynn Veazey, Howard Wilson, George Hyser. During the year we lost Delia Chavez, Daryle Markley, and Elmer Ridge. But we gained Dean Brown, John Earnest, Elizabeth Brickley, Mary Lou Oser, and Donald Wilson. Then we started our second grade, still with Miss Martin. During our second grade Eugene Wilson, William Brickley, Wendall Ormsby and Jackie Pickins were newcomers. When we moved on to the third grade we were greeted by a new teacher, Miss Eulala Martin. Several pupils moved away. They were Donald Wilson Eugene Wilson, William Brickley, Elizabeth Brickley, and Max Rash. In our fourth grade year, we were taught by Mrs. Artis Swank of Bluffton. Wegot several new pupils that year. They were Fred Gearhart, Gloria Kumfer, Don Runyan, Vesta Haines, and Alma Kumfer. Jackie Pickins moved away. When we moved to the fifth grade we were taught by Mrs. Eulala McLean. Beulah Bosler, whose father was principal, joined us that year. Lee La Lone was also a new pupil. 3 Marjorie Moore and J. Anderson moved in when we were in the sixth grade. Our teacher was Mary Lou Boyd. Mrs. Hammond guided us through our seventh grade year. That year Ellen Osborn, and Earnest and Louis Baylog joined our class. We were all anxious to be upstairs and we finallly went up to the eighth grade where we were taught by Fred Wall. We had lots of fun having history ballgames. We also had a class party in the gymnasium. We'l1 never forget the day we started high school. It took a long time to get enough nerve to enter the assembly. When the bell rang there were 20 stupified freshmen who plodded into the assembly. We had two new members, Betty Crist and Evelyn Guy. Fred Gearhart returned after spending one year at Ossian. During that year Walter Miller left us. He moved to Fort Wayne and attended South Side High School. A little later Glorie Kumfer left us, and at the end of the year Shirley Platt moved to Rockcreek. There were many memorable things this year, with the second period rush from biology to English standing out among them. After a much needed vacation we returned to occupy the second row of seats in the assembly. During our sophomore year we gave a convocation program which included our pantomine of "My Merry Oldsmobile," in which Marjorie and Lynn played the mean little kids and Danny and Ellen, the domineering parents. When our Junior year rolled around we were astounded at all the activities approaching us. Some of the highlights of that year were our skating party, convocation program, junior play, and our Junior-Senior trip to chicago. For our convocation program we gave a Christmas play, "Light Competition," in order to prepare ourselves for our oncoming junior play which was "Gangway For Ghosts" given on March 17. Though everyone went home and looked under their beds, we were told it was a success. On February 8 we received our class rings. We took our Junior-Senior trip to Chicago April 1, 2, and 3. We enjoyed visits to many prominent places in Chicago, including the Cook County Morgue. Gruesome as it was we all profited from the visit. After a very busy and eventful year we left our junior class behind us to go toward our goal, the senior year. One of the first events of our senior year was our play, "It's A Great Lifelf' Another important event was our senior -pictures. We were kept busy ordering such things as caps and gowns, name cards, and invitations. We will always remember our Junior-Senior reception which was held April 28th at the Hotel Lafontaine in Huntington. And so ends our journey through school.

HIGH The Junior High basketball team had a below average season during 1949-50 with seven wins and twelve losses. Most of the losses were very close with the loss resulting from the lack of ability to score consistently. Defensively the team functioned well with only three teams able to score twenty-seven or more points against them. The starting lineup usually included Tom Burnau, Ronnie Hoopingarner, Don Carl, Roger Norris and Phil Hoopingarner or Jim Bunsold. In addition, Ronnie Grim and Jerry Quackenbush saw considerable action. The Seventh Graders showed considerable promise by defeating Bluffton's seventh graders twice by scores of twenty-six to fourteen and twenty-seven to nineteen. In addition Lancaster's seventh was beaten thirty-four to eight. Most of the action was seen by Larry Burgess, Jerry Quackenbush, Dave Reavis, Larry Corell, Jerry Corell and Joe Hanauer. The 1949-50 Junior High free throw trophy was won by Roger Norris with a pitching percentage of .533 with Joe Hanauer close behind with .500.

The team got off to a good start and won all of their games, but just couldnit seem to get past Petroleum. Petroleum seemed to be the only team able to stop the Badgers in the regular season schedule. In the county tournament the four teams that were top in the county had a drawing for the playoffs, Union drew Petroleum and were defeated by a on-e run margin in a hard fought ballgame. - ,.

During the summer Isabelle Borton was sent to represent our club at Purdue Roundup, and Eunice Bradburn and Jeanne Thomas won trips to the International Livestock Exposition in Chicago. We had an advisory committee member from each township home economics club. The advisers were Mrs. Harold Park, Mrs. Charles Sickafus, and Mrs. May Thomas.

To complete a successful year, we were awarded the third seal for our Charter, granted for achievement and completion. SENIOR PLAY TOP PHOTO-Standing: Danny Thorna, Dick Couch, J.
