Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good fortune, Henceforth, I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms, Strong and content I travel the open road. The earth, that is sufficient, I do not want the constellations any nearer, I know they are very well where they are, I know they suffice for those who belong to them. . .

V. G. H. S. is proud of their student council. lt is made up of representatives from each advisory group that are elected by the group members. The presi- dent and vice-president of the student coun- cil are elected by the entire student body. Other officers are chosen by members of the student council. There are six seniors, five juniors, two sophomores, and one freshman in the V, G. H. S, student council. Mr. Kelley, assistant principal, serves as chairman. Mr. Wolfe and Miss Sidwell serve as advisors to the student council. Many school activities are sponsored by the student council, the Thanksgiving Dance being the most import- ant, for it is the student council that does all planning and preparing for this occasion, llc 'L .91 y : X P Mary Prosser -- Joan Bender --- Charles Andrews--- Jack Griffin ---- Ray Stebbins- -- ----------Editor ----Assistant Editor ---------Business Manager ---Assistant Business Manager Bob Cullum ---- --------------- Frank Curry Arthur Harper Roger Cook Ronald Elder Madonna Best Catherine Senters Norma McBride Harold Rogers Joann Babb Carolyn Dyke Norma Schrieb Bill Wise Mrs. Ruth Conn, Advisor I2 ------------Photographer ---------Sports Editor Carolyn Cunningham Barbara Patterson Norma Dean Rhodes Bob Crossman Barbara Page Pat Reinhart 1,6 IN 4' 1 PNA' X wb .giucfenb f ixmjgig J ' i Q .

Their attendants were Pat Reinhart and Frank Thomas, also seniors. We sponsored a freshman welcominq party and sold concessions at the football and basketball games. The play entitled "The Campbells Are Coming" was a laughing success. We can well say that our Senior year was very successful and as our token of remembrance we are editing our edition of the Vade Mecum. CHARLES ANDREWS-"Chuck".

'Pw- agno- - . 6165 prop QC? As "Talent Scouts" for the Planetarium Stu- dios we went all the way to Mars looking for just the right person to play the part of a coal miner lost in a uranium mine. After searching in vain on Mars, we came to the planet Earth in search of just the right person. We looked up all the Seniors of the Class of l95l of Villa Grove High School, because it was a very talented class. We found each of them very well established in his life occupation. Some were still working to- ward their goals while others had reached their height. lnstead of taking care of her children, Barbara Patterson was out catching for her pitcher hubbie, Frank Thomas, who hopes some day to pitch for the Cleveland Indians. We next went to the familiar hangout for high school students, "The Sweet Shop," Carolyn Cunningham and Joan Bender are still standing out front waiting for a ride to New- man. They told us that one of our classmates, Bob Cullum, is now a famous actor-the "Charles Boyer" type. As we traveled on we passed Frank Curry still looking for Litchfield, Kansas, and a guy named "Zeke". As we arrived in Blackstone, Texas, we saw Pat Love, who is a success in his coaching, but looks like one of the injured players after his date the other night. His new name is "Lover Boy". He told us of some of the other students, one being Mary Prosser, who has now reached her greatest "height". She is now running a concession stand on the highest peak in the Alps. The second was Charles Andrews, who is now fa- mous in the field of osteopathy, for he has discov- ered one less rib in man, since Eve took "Adam's Rib". He told us also that Peggy Ballard is now a famous actress. Her screen name is Peggy Camp- bell. Norma Schreib is her manager. We saw Jack Griffin and Bob Crossman chauffeuring for a dealer in Buicks. We stopped in a pool hall where we found Catherine Senters still sitting on the knee of her first employer, it seems she forgot to move after taking her "Laptitude Test" for a secretarial job. Her employer was Ronald Elder owner of the "Swank Pool Room" Jimmy Prosser, who is an agent for Pat Reinhart, has just landed her a job with the "Stack and Sack" model agency in Sunset, Alaska. Also Carolyn Dyke, who plays piano in "Charles Billman's Dixieland Band", is vacationing in Alaska. Charles has as his feature singer Ma- donna Best, and Don Butler as drummer. In the little "Moon Room" a few miles from Sunset, Har- old Rogers is singing his "croon tunes" to the many Eskimos. As we came back to the states we went to the Ozarks where we found Joanne Babb teach- ing in the mountains. She carries a jug of corn "likker" and a shotgun to school with her every day. We went into Western Virginia where we found Bill Wise and Dick Rund in the "Moonshine" distilling business. Also in Virginia at this time was the "Jingling Brothers" Circus. They are fea- turing Norma Rhodes the muscular lady. As we left Virginia, just before crossing the state line, we stopped in a little filling station where we talked to Barbara Page. She is still trying to decide whether or not to call her first child Johnny or just Junior. She told us that Roger Cook and Arthur Harper are now in the safety pin business. They say it is very profitable. A truck just stopped at this filling station and guess who the driver is. lt is Carl Soliday, who owns a trucking line, from Corpus Christi, Texas. He has as his private secre- tary, Norma Lee McBride. We are now reaching Hollywood again after searching in vain. I just bought a Hollywood paper and it says Jack Kleiss and Ray Stebbins are testing for the part of "Pa", which has always been played by Percy Kilbright until his death. Wait, we forgot someone, John Brooks. He would be just the one to play the part. Where is he? l know, he is now called "The Trail Blazer" for he found a shorter distance to Bethany. Yes, he is just the one. Maybe he could find his way out of that uranium mine. The End C6165 W Having strode, walked, sauntered, dragged, shoved, shouldered, crawled, and wobbled through four years of high school, we, the Class of l95I, with dripping eyes, hearts laden with sorrow, and trembling voices, do rise to proclaim this question- able masterpiece of legal nonsense, our last will and testament. To the Freshmen, we leave all our answer books, broken pencils, crumpled papers, old chew- ing gum, also the wastebasket, so they may be- come a menace to the faculty. To the Sophomores, we bequeath Rockefeller's bankroll so they may put on a prom that no one will ever forget. To the Juniors, we bequeath this advice: Eat, Drink and Be Merry, for next year you may become dignified Seniors. To the Faculty, we leave to restore the quiet halls, the new water fountains, and all the many panes which go with V. G. High. I, Charles Andrews, bequeath my sophisti- cated ways to Tom Gire. I, Joann Babb, bequeath my ability to get along with the teachers to Babs Steffens. l, Peggy Ballard, willingly leave everything to the school, l'm through with it. I, Joan Bender, bequeath my love for talking to Donald Ament, who I know will appreciate it. I, Madonna Best, bequeath my friendly dispo- sition to Dorothy Crawford. I, John Brooks, bequeath my high jumping ability to Richard Pippen in hopes that he will con- quer the heights that I have. I, Don Butler, leave my I5 acres, I3 scrawny pigs, and a balky mule to the Future Farmers of America. I, Charles Billman, leave my old limousine to the junk yard, that is, if they will take it. I, Carolyn Cunningham, bequeath my dramatic ability to Jeanine Callahan who has a good start. I, Frank Curry, leave my outdated service cycle to Miss Sidwell. I, Bob Crossman, will not bequeath my inter- est in Tuscola to anyone because I want to keep it. I, Bob Cullum, leave my cheerleading ability to "Boonie" McCollom. I, Roger Cook, leave to get married. I, Carolyn Dyke, bequeath my bashful ways to Delores Harper. 'W Q 3?- .1 ' mf- ' -YT' " ' lg' . -3 fl, c U- . -w..q. .I , H ,ip l' 1-fy-.i . 'Q 20 I, Ronald Elder, bequeath my million that I have made in the Pool Hall to Delene Stewart. I, Jack Griffin, bequeath my ability to play basketball to Gene Fieldbinder. I, Arthur Harper, bequeath my wavy hair to Junior Soards. I, Jack Kleiss, bequeath my ability to speak before the student body to Roy Elder. I, Pat Love, leave my co-captainship in foot- ball to Jim Fanakos, as he surely deserves it. I, Norma McBride, bequeath my quiet ways to Rosie Bosch and hope that she will make use of them. I, Barbara Page, leave my diamond to Kay Curry. I, Barbara Patterson, bequeath my short nat- ural curly hair to Alice Basham. I, Jimmy Prosser, bequeath my devilish ways to that saintly little Jack Christman. l, Mary Prosser, bequeath my scholastic stand- ing to Rita Christian. I, Pat Reinhart, leave my interests in Villa Grove to take up wholeheartedly my interests in Monticello. I, Dick Rund, leave my driving technique to anyone fool enough to use it. I, Ray Stebbins, bequeath my rosy cheeks to Ray Cheeley. I, Catherine Senters, bequeath my flirtiness to Eloise Laley who is already doing quite well. I, Norma Schreib, bequeath my love for roller skating to my sister, Shirley, to keep it in the family. I, Norma Rhodes, bequeath my nearness to the ground to Peggy Anderson. I, Harold Rogers, bequeath my singing voice to Luther Soliday. I, Carl Soliday, bequeath my Building 81 Trades ability to Ronald Novak. I, Frank Thomas, bequeath my baseball pitch- ing ability to Bob Feller. I, Bill Wise, leave for Pesotum, where I in- tend to make my home hereafter. This document, having caused many a head- ache and worry, is now declared by the Class of I95I to be their last will and testament. We, the Administrators, do hereby affix our seal in the year of Our Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Fifty-One. gm ,eww JM JVM ' x n A NN' f in p gp, Q50 4 15 50' so V, vgw gf O ,O 4.14 Q Q x'OA3YXp" XQYXX Q x-1 '- x X !X ,'Q -45lSx - -O 1 1 .Q x ...,,V.,' xf x 'N aff 1503 N ' ,tg ssXwx..,xV , .f '51p.',:.S'tf I103 V ' ,ph if .

The Queen's attendants were Pat Reinhart, a senior, Mary Kay Robison, a Junior, Sheron Patterson, a Sophomore and Clarice Smith, a Freshman. King Kleiss' attendants were Frank Thomas, a Seniorg Larry Livengood, a Juniorg Charles Behl, a Sophomore and Bill Hancock, a Freshman. The Queen and King and also the attendants marched from between the goal posts at the south end of the football field to a throne erected on a truck at the 50 yard line in a very picturesque manner. Rose Marie Gilles and Perry Christman, last year's Queen and King crowned Barbara and Jack. After many pictures had been taken they marched to the side of the field to watch Villa Grove win a decisive victory over Arthur by a score of 40-13. The Future Farmers of America won the first prize in the Homecoming parade which was held Friday afternoon, October 6. This float consisted of an Amishman driving a tractor, pulling a wagon on which an Amish lady was praying for her son, who was in a coffin. Her son must have been an Arthur football player. Second place went to the seniors who had Norma Rhodes and Peggy Ballard pressing the Arthur team with a large iron. The Homecoming was climaxed with the dance after the game in the high school gym. Crownbearers to the throne. Princess Johanna Culp and Prince Bobby Bender- The Royal Court of Villa Crove's Homecoming. gs-'mf I . ., 'wif . .r.i"".t 50 'Yu wh, 1 xi' .ibagy "Grandmothuh!
