F OR you who are leaving Wlyoming this year, and for you who are coming back, the Orbit staff has recorded this year's activities. Our high school days at VVyoming pass quickly, and as the future becomes the past, we will find pleasure in recalling old memories of things that happened back in nineteen-fifty. In future years we will no doubt laugh at the clothes we wore and the things we did, but even so. we will be able to look back with fond mem- ories at our days in YV. H. S., and realize that these have been the best years of our lives. It will be then that we will treasure this book. JOHN A. TOWER, A.B., Michigan State College Matlacmatics and Physiml Education DEDICATION To John Tower, in sincere.appreciation for the high ideals of sportsinunship he has instilled in everyone, we respectfully dedicate this issue of the Orbit.

NYENHUIS Office Secretary 23595 S Zin illilemnriam In dedicating this page ol the Orbit of 1950 to the memory of Mr. Burlingame, the publication staff pays tribute to a leader whose devotion to service in community improvement and social betterment was most generously and sincerely applied. As a member of the Board of Educa- tion he gave unstintingly of his time and talents to increase the value of our school as an agency designed to enrich the lives of young people. His wide circle of friends and acquaintances will not soon forget his keen sense of sound judgment in problems both of a group and a personal nature. Indeed, the death of Mr. Burlingame is a great loss to our community, but much of the influence of his many worthy traits of personality continues to dwell with us. ..f5,,gx,.fv-f 1-45p'ui '5 f'X fN Q' .

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY Ladies and gentlemen this is Doug Hock- stra your roving reporter for station XYZ. 'Tm out here at Lamar Park in that new city of N'Vyoming Park. This is the llth animal Vik- ing Festival and it's quite an affair. f'I..et's wander around and see whom we can find around here. There's Florence Van Dyke over at the hamburg stand. She's queen of the hamburg flippers now and has her headquarters at her swell new modern smack shack, the 'Greasy Spoon.' YfVhy look who's over at the refreshment stand! None other than our famous governor Mary Semeyn, with lfVyoming Park's energetic mayor Francis Higbee, and this district's crime busting D. A., Dorothy YVilliams. It's possible they are talking politics but they are probably discussing that Broadway, record breaking play 'Lavender and Old Lace' with those two top stars Noreen Ylladdell and Roger Fountain in their original roles stealing every performance. Let's move over toward the grand stand now and see whom we can find. Jack Crull, the mil- lionaire show backer, is bringing us the wonder- ful show here tonight. Some of the stars of the show are former members of the class of '50, They are Charlotte Ahlberg who is astounding all of America with her dancing and Ruth Hoek- stra who is a chorus line dance teacher. They are putting on an ZICt together and the most famous circus clown in the country, Alice Cole, is here with Joyce l'Vestveld, Ringling Bros. tight-rope walker. Let's see what the crowd is over here in back of the grand stand. lfVhy it's America's number one auctioneer, Beverly Moore, adding her talents to the auction. And what an illustrious crowd she has gathered. Dave Hershey that dentist who discovered an entirely painless method of drilling and pull- ing teeth is here with Dr. Jolm Levering, Don Anderson, who is giving lectures on his Alaskan explorations, and Dennis Marlowe, who can claim part of the credit for bringing the NVorld's Series pennant to the Detroit Tigers the last two years. Paul Howell who was always betting some- thing back in his high school days is taking a holiday from his Nevada gambling casino to help Mr. Engels on his penny pitching board. There's our old friend Mr. Zylstra by the ferris wheel talking with Arlene Tazelaar who is exhibiting a number of pictures in Grand Rapids. Lola Tilma who is vacationing from her modeling career for Jolm Powers, and Mar- lene Karsten, good old XYZ's top disk jockey. Hello there Mr. Zylstra, hi gals, this is quite a festival isn't it? Yes, Doug, this is nothing like the small one we had back in 1949 which was the First festival we had. l'm glad so many of our old class of '50 can be here to see the improvement. Yes, it is nice, well l'll see you later, I'll have to tell my listening friends some more about this festival. There's Barbara Garnett who is Mayor Fran Higbee's secretary with Betty Jolliffe who is secretary for Marve Burger, owner of the fast growing 'Little Peanut Companyf I have heard that Jim NVinu and Tunis Schouten, are perfect- ing a new formula for better peanuts for Marve. l1Vhy look who's throwing tomatoes at Jim Fuller, the 'Fuller brushman' and Roger Van Malsen who has Van's Baby Sitting Agency for babies over 19 - it's Joyce Oberly, our ex-cheer- leader who now does the decorating in the best homes in New York. There are hundreds of people here and the Park Taxi Company owned by Gail Mulder and Kathryn Hoekstra is bringing in more all the time. Keith Van Ham, who drew up the plans for the new city offices and the new high school has just arrived with Al Dreyer, who owns the Dreyer Plumbing Company and Tom Olson, that highly demanded carpenter. Marilyn Nederveld has taken time off from her Texas ranch to visit her old friend Made- lon Colthurst, one of Miehigan's best educators and Joyce Ferguson, dean of that nationally known girls' finishing school, 'Rosewoodf The Benit Department Store is well repre- sented by its owner Bette Benit and two of her clerks, Janette Lynema and Dolores Kline. VV ith them is that elevator girl who always stops even with the floor, Bonnie King. I see Jim Austin, popular bandleader, has arrived with his band, accompanied with the arranger, Bruce Donelson, for their part in the show. And naturally that inseparable pair, Ray Groendyke and Roger Farwell are here. You still see them together everywhere just as you did back in the days before '50. They are just about the best mechanics in the state and they can make any Ford run. Could Marilyn Hinds and Pauline Lowing be comparing business over at the refreshment stand? Marilyn has the institution for the fee- ble-minded called 'Napoleon's Palace' and Paul- ine runs a baehelor's home, the 'Rooster's Roost.' There's the former Hildred Baar and Le- nora Doorn with their families talking to Cal- vin Miller who just took honors at the Olympics recently. YVell, folks, my time is running out and I have made this a who's who of Wyoming Park's class of '50, but with all of my illustrious class- mates I got sidetracked. However you can read all about the festival in Nancy Stearns' nation- ally read paper, the New York Beacon.. So long folks. Tune in tomorrow when I will be at the parade in Grand Rapids.

They introduced a safety program to alleviate many of the hazardous walking conditions around the school, and a program by which the hall monitors were to keep the halls clean and orderly. The assemblies were set up under the Assem- bly Service Program, and were some of the best we have ever had. The Student Council also bought materials for new curtains for the stage. On lNIarch IG the Student Council participated in the eleventh annual Community Roundup to raise money for the new athletic field. Roger Fountain View I'H'sidt'i1!

FIRST AND SECOND TEAM - FOOTBALL The results of the 1949 football season were not too encouraging as far as wins and losses are concernedg however, the brighter side of the picture is that iflfyoming will have fourteen letter winners feiglit juniors and six sophomoresj back in 1950, whereas there were only seven on hand to start the season just completed. The best games of the season were against Zeeland, Grandville, and Kelloggsville. These games were hard-played and were not decided until the final whistle sounded. Seniors who won special mention on the Grand Valley Honor team were Roger Fountain and Dave Hershey. Xvyoming is looking for better things to come in 1950 because of the groundwork laid this year.

All contests were closely and cleanly fought. A good number of husky sophomores gained valuable experience during the sea- son and should add strength to the many returning members of the new varsity for the 1950 season. 50 1.r'ft In riglzl- Is! row: B. 11-mmink.

As a result this year's basketball team was predicted to end up at the bottom of the league with very lew, if any, wins . . . so said the papers and those who follow the Grand Valley League. However, alter getting a slow start, the juniors and seniors who make up this year's team started to play good, consistent ball: much better, in lact, than most people had anticipated they would. At the end of the season they were regarded by the Coaches in the league as the most improved team in the circuit. Although the second team lost seven of its players to the hrst team this year, they had a highly successful season. Winning nine games and losing only six placed them in the bracket of one of the better teams in the league. The prospects lor next year are bright, and it promises X'Vyoming another powerhouse in the future. 54 J. Ohcrly M. Hooijcl' M. Runyon S. Brnford I.z'fI to riglll: Oherly. C. OKICSOII, M. Runyon, S.

BASEBALL This year's baseball squad had a fairly good number of seasoned players back, includ- ing a veteran pitching stall' and outheld. The infield, composed of sophoniores and juniors, gained valuable experience playing Legion ball last summer. Our team expects to gain at least a First division berth this season in Grand Valley play and started things oil with a four to three win over Lee in their initial contest. Van Ham hurled a one-hitter, but costly errors provided Lee with their three markers. This vear's tealn has onlv four seniors, so a wood team should return next 'ear also. 1 1 23 1949 BASEBALL SCORES LEAGUE NON LEAGUE l'Vy0l11ll1g Godwin . .. 1 1'Vyon1ing .... 7 Kelloggsville 1fVyoxninQg Lee ..... . . ll 1'Vyo1ning .... 4 Byron Center l'Vy0lllll1g East ........ . . . l l'Vyon1ing .... l Union . . . . . . 1fVyoniing Grandville . . . . . 5 Wfyoming .... 4 Hudsonville l'VyO111ll1g .... 3 Lowell . . . . 6 Wlyoming .... 3 Hudsonville 1-Vyoniinlg Rockford .. 5 l'VyO111l11g .... 13 Kelloggsville Wyoming .,.. 12 Byron Center 1950 SCHEDULE April 18 - Lee .........,.............,,. fHerej April 25 -- Rockford 2 .....fThereJ May Grandville .... .....

One night she put her bonnet on, Threw a kiss, and said, You girls take care of everything And get yourselves to bed. Good-bye, girls, I'm going out tonight, Good-bye girls, now keep your eyes shut tight. I-Iere's where I go out and have some fun For the day's all over and the night has just begun And you know, I'm so tired I don't know what to do Of living in a Ballet Shoe -- So don't you bat an eye and don't wake up and cry, I'll be back to start your lessons in the morning! Wlien she closed the door The children all jumped 'round with glee They long ago had planned a show - A dancing one - you see. Solos, Duos, Trios and Ensembles by the score With Rhymes and Songs and Dancing Games - Now who could ask for more? Come on, girls, it's time to start our show, Come on, girls, be sure your dance you know! Every step we've practiced such a while Get your ballets on and, girls, be ready with a smile - And you know - when we finish with our dancing show It's off to bed we all must go - So get your costumes right and tie your ribbons tight, Please close the curtain and we'll pose the Hrst Performers K. de F. 1.
