The year is 1965. As I stand here in the office of WRHS looking at the files
of former students I happen upon the files of the class of 1955. Let us look at
what these people are doing now.
Janice Baxter who always enjoyed shorthand in high school is taking dicta-
tion from the President of the United States at 199 words a minute.
Phyllis Baxter, now Mrs. Kenny Glenn, is living south of Waverly busily
raising cows, chickens, pigs, and children.
Marge Buehler comes next. Well we had a hard time contacting her because
she was out on a cruise in her old tub, The USS Superhomogalatedamphlifier.
She is bus keeping all the bolts in the boiler room tightened so the tide won't
over take lier.
Patty Clavert and her husband own the Waverly Telephone Company. The
exchange now covers Sharpe, Halls Summit, Silkville, and Aglricola.
Frank Efinger has discovered a new kind of bomb called t e Q. T. bomb,
Frank has taken over Einsteins place since the great scientist passed on.
Fred Efinger, his twin brother is doing quite well for himself too. He is
teaching English at WHS, He got his out-side reading so well that he decided
that the En ish profession couldn't do without him.
Gerald ifischer now head coach at Notre-Dame is also working on the three
minute mile on his spare time. Some say this is impossible but Gerald mastered
Physics so he feels he could do anything.
Harold Fischer really went up in the world. Harold is now President of the
First National Bank of Waverly. He has perfected the latest atomic eye to
George French is now living in Melvern, Kansas and is married to the for-
mer Janet Korbe, George and anet have a very successful business of running
a dance hall called "Five Corners".
Beverly Gordon is head bookkeeper at the "Chewy Chomper" chewing gum
factory. The figlures get rather gummed up at times but she always manages to
get them straig tened out.
Professor Robert Grounds a well established Historian is teaching American
History at Waverly High School.
Jack Hamilton is returning to the United States from a lion hunt in Africa.
Jack is well known for his abi ity to hunt. But What? ?
Gerry Howe owns a fleet of rockets that go to the moon twice a month. '
This is a thriving little business for Gerry and he made quite a haul out of it.
Jimmy Hughes has climbed Mount Everest for the very first time back-
wards. Jim was always a backward boy in school. ,
Vivian Long is the only old maid in the class of 1955. She is teaching
Kinder arten at Agricola. The reason poor Viv never married is because she
never gaund a man who would pick up his socks.
Nellie Markham is still looking or a man or rather an unsuspecting
sucker. Good luck Nell I hope you catch one soon or you may get too old.
Mary Massey just filibustered in Congress for t ree days fifteen hours
thirty minutes and two seconds against the Filibustering Bill. She now holds
the Worlds record. That wasn't hard to understand because Mary always enjoyed
talking to an extent in school.
Betty McKinstry just won the championship race at the Indianapolis speed-
ways. Betty was one of the be st and the fastest drivers when she was in school.
Karen Northcott is now the box office favorite on the Grande Old Opery in
Nashville Tenn. She is co-starring with Ernest Tubb. She's the tub and he's
Shirley Rickman took over the Sundry store in Waverly and now owns a
chain across the country. Just look for Shirley's Sundry Shop for the best re-
freshments the world over.
Frankie Schmid is a famous New York Model. She is featured on the cover
of Country Gentlemen wearing her Bermuda shorts.
LeRoy Steward owns all t e cattle in Coffey County and his Ranch is widely
known. As I was driving to Waverly I passed LeRoy in his new 1965 Caddie, 62
cylinder, with a hinge in the middle, car. Lee is so rich that he has installed
in the rear of his car a shower, T. V. set, and all the conveniences of home.
Bessie Lee Vesey finally found the one and only man for her an African
Pygmy. They met while Bessie and Jack were on a game safari in deepest Africa
It was love at first sight.
Georgia Lea Ward, better known as Gorgeous Geor ia the famous Lady
wrestler is now appearing in Madison Square Gardens. georgia always was a
muscle gal when she was in school.
The last name on my list here is Rev. Jim Williams. He is preaching in the
Presbyterian Church in Waverly. After his experience at Preaching in t e Variety
Show his Senior year Jim decided to make this his profession.
It looks like all the Seniors of 1955 did rather well for themselves doesn't it?
