One of the high lights of that fall was our initiation. The girls were required to wear overalls and shirts back- wards, a boy's cap and were not allowed to wear make-up. The boys were re- quired to wear girls's shoes, dresses, kerchiefs, jewelry, and make-up. The sophomores entertained us with a party. Later we had a party for them in re- turn. Genevieve Dangel and Alvin Eisenbeisz were the Queen and Marshall Can- didates for our carnival. In the spring we had a picnic at Edward's Grove The time was spent in games followed with a Wiener roast. At the end of that day the tired but happy freshmen wound their way home. In our sophomore year thirty-three students returned to school. During the year Loretta Blumhardt and Tillie Gabriel joined our class. Art Lassle left us due to illness. Betty Thurn and Gordon Diedtrich were the Queen and Marshall candidates for our carnival and were elected Cossack Queen and Mar- shall for the year 'Mb-'45, In the spring we had a picnic at Spring Lake. The main events of that day were boat riding and playing kittenball. The only misfortune of the day was that Rose Glatt fell into the lake while boat riding Having eventually reached our third year in high school we felt like real ladies and gentlemen and decided to try to indicate our ability. One of our first activities was ordering our class rings, which we received in January. We had quite a time getting ready to give our play. Our play nDrums of Deathn was given on January 19th and it turned out to be a great success. Loretta Blumhardt and Gordon Stotz were Queen and Marshall candidates for the CarnivaL The high light of the junior year was our formal Banquet and prom. The ban- quet was held in the St. Paul's Lutheran Church parlors and the Prom in the high school gym. Music was furnished by the Bill Klitz Orchestra. A grand march was the high light of the evening. Having completed the Junior year we left school in joyful anticipation of the senior year. At the beginning of our senior year two members of the class were missing. They were Lloyd Jones and Genevieve Dangel, A new member, Israel Stoecker en- rolled. He was discharged from the Navy and came back to finish his senior year. We were given the honor of initiating the Freshman. This was enjoyed very much by all of the students and the faculty. In the evening the fresh- men entertained us by doing various kinds of stunts. The rest of the evening was spent in games and dancing. Lunch was served at the close of the evening. LuVerne Sandmeier and Alvin Schuh were crowned Cossack Queen and Marshall of Bowdle High School for '46-'47. A large crowd attended the Gala Affair. The boys who participated in athletics were Gordon Stotz, Gordon Diedtrich, Alvin Schuh and Alvin Huber. James Loebs, one of our most brilliant students, left our class to move to Lodi, California to live with his parents. The main events of the year were the senior class play, the Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom and the Senior Skip Day at Bismark, North Dakota. 15 4 SENIGR CLASS PROPHECY Portland, Oregon May 23. 1957 Dear Mr. Deuschle: As you may have wondered what happened to the Class of 1947 of Bowdle High, I am hereby informing you. Having purchased a new l957 model chevrolet which is now operated by atomic power, I decided to go on a trip to give it a road trial. Covering many miles I came to Hollywood, Calif. I noticed when looking at the dash- board that the atomic energy gauge was shmdng very low. I stopped at a Tex- aco filling station where I could get a recharge and to my surprise the service lady was Hellas Goldade. While I was there Mrs. Wilmer Schaible CLoretta Blumhardtb drove up to have a flat tire fixed. I conversed with her and found that they are living in a depot and enjoying life greatly since nanother onen was added to the family. After I left the station I saw Mrs.K.Roth CTillie Gabrielb and Eye little tots walking on the street. I then decided to have dinner. In that restruant I found that Lydia Buechler is the owner and two of the waitress- es are Leona Dumdie, and Ada Lynne Schick. While I was dining, I saw Albi- nus Thomas nearing my table. He stopped to talk to me and I was informed that Athneal Buechler and he am the managers o a funeral home in Hollywood. I asked Albinus how business is and his reply was, NVery good-the mistakes I make are soon covered." He also told me that he saw Israel Stoecker zoo- ming by one day on a scooter delivering groceries for his nSuper MadEm.n After a talk with him, and my meal finished I left town and driving along the country-side, who do you think I saw climbing a telephone post? Why, none other than Raymond Doerr, busily doing electrical work. I stopped and talked to him and he stated that while in town one day he met Thelma Stangl walking to her office where she is employed as a stenographer. I, then continued my traveling and arrived at my next stop which was San Diego, Calif. where I noticed a billboard advertising a basketball ga- me. As the coach of the team was Gordon Diedtrich, I stopped and bought a ticket from his wife CVenoy Schumacherl. After the game I had supper with them. Before we ate supper we were served cocktails which Gordon purchased from Afred Geist's bar. I inquired about some of the other members of the class and Venoy said that Martha Schick is the owner ofa.Beauty Parlor and that Cornelius Schilling is President of the Civil Engineering Company. They told me that Rose Glatt and her husband are living in Sacramento, Cal. where her husband is teaching at dr1University and that in Sacramento oneof the greatest hospitals is being started under the supervision of a doctor and his wife, Doris Oster who is supervisor of nurses. They asked me to spend the night with them and so I remained there till morning. I left early in the morning and soon came to a lovely farm and coming out of the drive-way was Gordon Stotz on a tractor. I stopped in for awhile and saw his wife and children busily at work in the yard. After a short chat with them I continued my journey and cruising along through Neada, I drove into Utah. I had to stop because of a great herd of cattlecrossing the road and out of the path came the thundering hoof beats of a grse with Robert Doerr burning the leather. I went on to New Mexico. After spending the night in Albrquerque. I left early in the morning and traveled on till I arrived in Texas and driving into San Antonio I noticed many billboards advertising a circus in town. I decided to attend the circus and to my sul prise two couples who had known each other quite well in school days were the managers of the circus. They were Alvin Eisenbeisz and his wife CCaro- line Mertzb and his brother-in-law, Alvin Schuh. They told me that Lu- Verne Sandmeier and Bette Thurn are stewardesses for a Trans-Oceanic air- line. I went out and found them getting ready for a flight over China with the owner of the airline, Alvin Huber. I learned that Lester Giedt is reporter on a large western paper and that Eloise Giedt and Virginia Feist were recently married in a double wedding in New York City. I re- turned to SanAntonio for the night and reading a newspaper the,nSanAntonio Sentineln I found that the paper was edited by none other than GeraldineT? Dewald. It has been a pleasure to meet some of my old classmates and to hear ' about many of the othenb I had to hurry back to my work as.I am President of the Western Division of General Motors with the headquarters at Port- land. I married a girl who was in the freshman class while we were seniors and we have three lovely children. Yours Sincerely, Melvin Bollinger.
