We elected Susie Montgomery our president, Carol Cler vice- president, Rosie Cler secretary, and Morris Phipps treasurer for the school year 1951-52. Morris was unable to finish his term of office, so we elected Bob Gentry to finish the year in that capacity. Our sponsors were Mary Lou Sponsler and Bill Crum, and under their encouraging direction, we elected Jacqueline Wade, Shirley Dyke, Bob Gentry, and Rosie Cler as our representa- tives to the student council. Emily Hettinger and John Behl were chosen, as the freshman attendants to homecoming, and Jackie Wade and Janice Reedy were elected junior varsity cheerleaders from our class. .-S , Y A 1 - r" ' ' -.

Shirley D ke was awarded the Junior Cape as recognition o her high scholastic standling. Our junior class play, "'Sno Haven, " under the direction of Mrs. Mary Jones, was a tremendous success. Many of us hated to see the last time for a "first day" at V,G,H, S, come, but nevertheless, come it did. Forty-eight of us met and elected Emily Hettinger president of the senior class of 1955. Her corps of officers were: Don Lourash, vice-presidentg Roberta James, secretary, Shirley Dyke, treasurer, Sue Culp, concessions chairman. We were happy to have Bill Crum back from the army to join forces with Miss Sponsler as our sponsors for the senior year. The president of the student body, elected in an all-school election the previous spring, and a member of our class, was Bob Gentry. His vice-president, elected in the same way, was Charles Knox. Other representatives from our class to our student governing body were Jackie Wade, Janice Reedy, Sue Culp, and Deliece Woodall. Jacqueline Wade and Jim Love, a senior transfer from Reavis High School in Oak Lawn, were crowned 1954's homecoming queen and king. Included in their court as senior attendants were Roberta James and Ron Love. Jackie, lcon- cluding four consecutive yearsj Roberta, Qconcluding three consecutive yearsj Sharon Riddell, and Robby Doppelheuer were elected varsity cheerleaders from our class to cheer for our football co-captains, John Behl and Ron Love. Janlce concluded her fourth consecutive year as a majorette, and Sharon was elected drum majorette by the band. Melva Rowe was awarded the Daughters of the American Revolution award and Rosie Cler was the first boy to receive an S,A, R, award in this school. The co-valedictorians for 1955 were Melva Rowe and Shirley Dyke and the salutatorian was Deliece Woodall. The "beauty queens" of our class included Jackie Wade, whom the school elected, after our nomina- tion, Villa Grove's attendant to the 1954 Pancake Festival, Sue Culp, the Harvest Queen of the l954 Thanksgiving dance, and Roberta James, V, G, 's Sweetheart to the annual Okaw Valley Sweetheart Ball in February of 1955. Our senior play "Night Crawlers," directed by Mrs. Margaret Thorell, was also put on the list of the class of 55's successes. ' So ends the class of 55's four years at Villa Grove High School. We've had a lot of fun together, and we have many memories to recall. "Congratulations to Class of '55" DON'S IGA MARKET "ON YOUR ACCOUNT" We, the graduating class of 1955, consisting of the most superior, intelligent, athletic, and unbelievable morals ever to exist on this planet called Earth, or any other planet, feeling quite capable to do so, do hereby publish this, our last will and testament.

We have burned out all their light bulbs, gbroken their ladders, lost their tools, thrown paper all over the floors a few too many times to make them still love us. To the Juniors we leave ambition, team work, co-operation, and all the other qualities that Seniors are supposed to have. To the Sophomores we leave our dignity, well-groomed appearance, cheerful dispositions, and our ability to pass the blame off to underclassmen.

Q QR' We arrived in town via Simpsons' Speedy Airlines--Max and ,, 1 A Russell Simpson, proprietors. We bade farewell to our capable airline stewardess, Janice Reedy, and went immediately to our f 1 i reserved rooms in "Miller's Mansion" operated by our old class- mate, Roger Miller. 'DSI-fqo We were invited by the head of CBS-TV, Delbert Rogers, to ad A view the premier showing of that new TV show Happy Homes, r Q ' starring the new head of Betty Crocker Company, Alma Waggle 51- and her assistants Pat Patton and Jeanne Tewell. X We motored down in a Charlie's Quicky Cab run by Charles ' Blackford and upon our arrival at CBS were met by Jack Babb and Gary Allen, head doormen. We walked in the lobby and were greeted by the tantalizing O' aroma of Millie's Popcorn Delight, owned and operated by Mildred Wilcoxen. We entered the long hallway which led to the studios when fx who should we meet but John Boaz who is now starring on "Medic", with the capable assistance of Mary Ellen Reinhart and Melva Rowe, chief nurses. "Doc" Boaz tells us Bill Eisenmenger will appear on Fug' his next show as guest patient. Continuing down the corridor we ran into two handsome chaps who upon second glance we see to be Carl and Everett Martin who now produce several TV shows under the co-operation Martin Brothers Enterprises. They tell us one of their biggest shows is "Love Can Be Beautiful" starring those two delightful comedians Ron and Jim Love. Another of their popular shows is "Double Trouble" starring Deliece and Delores Woodall, We are past by a very studious looking person, with her nose buried in a sheath of papers Finally we recognized it to be Sue Culp who has become the first successful Woman news commentator. By the way, her showis called "Sue's Views. " Further on we see two coverall-clad gentlemen working on the water fountain who we find to be Don Lourash and Wayne Naive. They are now working for Prosser's Plumbing, run by Glenn Prosser. We passed one door and heard the happy tapping of feet who upon investigation was found to be Roberta James. She now is chief choreographer for that new group of 5 ft. dancers "Bert's Squirts". We finally arrived at the studio we were to visit, but found we were early. We seated our selves to wait and observe Gerald Christian, Bob Gentry and Don Greger studio crewmen setting up their equipment. Noticing the TV monitor we tuned it in so we might watch till show time. The first show we saw was "Hints on Happy Marriages" starring Carol Carter, Shirley Dyke, Helen Vande- venter, Shirley Massie, and Patsy Anderson--sponsored by "Behl's Square Deals" used cars--John Behl, owner. This show was nearly over and the next to come on was "Uncle Jim's Cartoon Special featuring Jim Gilmer. Not being able to decide just what we wanted to see, we began switching channels. Cn one station we got a ballgame and who should be pitching but Wayne Gabbard. No-hit Gabbard they call him now. On another we found Admiral Eric Kincanon of the U. S. Navy and Colonel Chuck Knox of the Confederates in a heated debate over the results of the second Civil War. lThe south did rise again!! '1That still didn't interest us so we turned in "Melodies by Cler", starring that famous band leader Rosie Cler, and his vocalist, Susie Montgomery, just in from Germany. Next we got the Girls' World Champion Basketball team "Robby's Globe-Toddlers", with Captain Robby Doppelheuer and her star player, Linda Wiman, who is now the tallest player in the league. While we were sitting here changing channels, who should walk in but Sharon Riddell, star of her own TV program, "Records with Riddell". This program consists of gossip from her old home town. She stopped and chatted with us for a few minutes and among other gossip we heard was that Jackie Wade and Emily Hettinger have been awarded medals for their outstanding work in the U, S, O, with special attention for the Army and Navy, respectively. Finally the director asked for silence and the program began. How nice it was to see all our old friends again. What a change television has brought into the lives of everyone! !

A 3-td underdog, the Devils gave Unity an outstanding game. John Behl scored our T. D. on an intercepted pass.

Q, WINS OKAW OPENER I3-O The Villa Grove eleven got off to a good start in the Okaw by the I3-0 whitewash of a good Bement eleven. Don Payton scored the two touchdowns, one on an amazing fifty yard run. Villa Grove really looked good in this game. DEVILS UPSET I8-6 Monticello pulled a few tricks out of the bag to score an upset I8-6. Villa Grove looked poor. L Don Payton was good as usual. GROVERS LOSE HEARTBREAKER 7-0 Tuscola knocked V.

Team scoring found V,G, with 76 113, Atwood 66 213, and Tuscola 4. It was also a year in which V,G, could never get started in big meets. They did, however, place 6th in the Charleston open with 20 112 points, but succeeded in acquiring only 9 points in the Urbana Open and 4 in the Paris Relays, all of which were earned by the Frosh Relay team. The V, G, thin clads then placed second in a triangular meet with I-Ioopeston, scoring 59, V. G, 55 112, and Oakwood 32. The team got back on their winning ways by soundly defeating Monticello 62-55. The long trip to the Pana Open netted V,G, third place with 23 7110 points. Then came the Tuscola Relays in which we gained 6th place and 18 points. In an attempt to equal last year's first place the Frosh-Soph captured third place in the Frosh-Soph Okaw with 32 points. After a delay of 10 years, Coach Trost's men really let go and walked away with the Okaw Valley Championship hands-down, the closest competition having only 30 points. Firsts went to Don and John Greger and Don Payton. To follow up the Okaw, V,G, placed 5th in the District meet with ll 113 points and sent Don Payton to the State Meet in the broad jump, The last team meet was a Frosh-Soph meet at Charleston in which four freshmeng Harvey McKenzie, Pete Mayhall, Bill Morse and Ron McCartney, scored 44 points for a 4th place.
