The class of 1950 began high school on September 13, 1946, with an enrollment of 51 students. With Mr. E. O. Peterson as advisor, we elected the following officers: President, Robert Mann; Vice President, Jerome Rivard; Secretary, Dorothy Dudczak; Treasurer, Roxann Hallen. We became full-fledged high-schoolers after our initiation by the Sophomore Class. We gave them a party in the spring in return for the initiation party. Robert Mann left before the year was over, and Jerome Rivard took over as president. We ended the year with 44 students.
We returned in the fall of 1947 as sophomores. Mr. Peterson was again our advisor, and the officers we elected were: President, Edith Monson; Vice President, Jerome Rivard; Secretary-Treasurer, Dorothy Dudczak. We initiated the new freshmen in the fall and enjoyed a class party at St. Croix Falls in the spring. Our members
totaled 45 at the end of the year.
Forty-five students reported for roll call as we entered our junior year. This year provided may interesting activities. Outstanding ebents were: our class play, our Jupior-Senior Banquet, and a trip to the Twin Cities to attend the Ice Follies and tour the art museum. Officers elected for 1948 were: President, Edith Monson; Vice President, Norvin Swager; Secretary, Dick Junkans; Treasurer, Donna Thompson; Advisor, Mr. E. O. Peterson.
We now have a total of 39 seniors who are making our last year one of the greatest. Highlights of the year include: class pic-
tures, class play, publication of our annual, a Junior Prom and Junior-Senior Banquet and commencement activities. Officers for the year are: President, Jerome Rivard;
Vice President, Edith Monson; Secretary, Donna Thompson; Treasurer, Lorraine Gale; Advisor, Mr. Lundberg.
On June 3, I960, the formerly small village of Clear Lake was totally unrecognizable to the 1950 graduates as they assembled at the Lakeside Stadium owned by Mr. and Mrs. Norman Peterson, (nee Virginia Martin), for a grand reunion of the class. President Edith Monson, first woman president of the United States, had formally acclaimed this day as a national holiday celebrating the grand opening of this gigantic architectural eighth wonder of the world, located on the beautiful shores of Clear Lake. Subways, streetcars, and taxies were jammed with citizens dazed with excitement.
Carl Thompson, pilot of the “Rocket Transport” landed gracefully on the municipal airport, managed by the noted Norma Beyl. As the passengers decended from the portable escalator patented by the great mechanical genius, Roger Jones, we recognized many familiar faces. Among them were; Beverly Hiam, widow of the late Lord Mollenox, who just arrived after spending the past two year s in South America, Ardys Whitmer, who has just taken the place of Minnie Pearl on the “Grand Ole Opery”; Eugene Emersor , famous movie actor, who has just completed his role in the broadway hit, “The Loves of Carmen; ” JerryRivard the second Einstien, who has made a prolonged study on the theory of how mice escape from mouse traps; Shirley Hall, Powers sensational model; Carol Olson and Dorothy Ohlin, private secretaries of the “J, Anderson-G. Hatella Nighty Night Mattress Co."; and Beverly Christison, stewardess of the plane.
Our scene now changes to the stadium parking lot where a fleet of taxies owned by Bob Felland, has just arrived. Bob’s usual taxi service is between the suburb of
Turtle Lake and city of Clear Lake but due to this special occasion he has given the class of “50” his entire services. Climbing out of one of these taxies we see Donna Thompson and lone Paulson, now Co. Home
agents for St. Croix and Polk counties. Arriving in a long black sedan is Joe St. Ledger, owner of the “Bottle-cap Night Club” with his most glamorous and talented night club singer, Roxann Hallen. At our right our attention is drawn to a group of people, evidently 1950 graduates, who are busily engaged in converstation. We recognize some of them as Carmalita Kuhn Music director of Clear Lake High School; Janet Pierson, a nurse at the general hospital in Pennsylvania; Joanne Peterson, who is a cornet player in Sammy Kaye’s Orchestra; Vivian Martin, who is now married and living on a farm near Clayton; Irene Knoll, cashier of the First National Bank; and Ellen Humpal, director of the “Clear Lake School of Dancing".
We are interrupted by a loud noise which we recognize as being a 1927 model “A” but as our vision clears we see that it is trulya 1938 driven by DuWayne Rosen. He owns a farm east of Clear Lake.
We are now inside the stadium watching the huge c rowd anxiously awaiting the great event. The lights grow dim and theorches-tra is heard as the roller skating team appears on the floor. The class of “50” applaud loudly when they recognize Lorraine Gale and Loyal Pittman, the stars of the show.
It is several hours later now as we look in on the dining hall. The grand reunion is in full swing. The graduates of “50" are all busy conversing with their chums, relating past experiences. We observe several newcomers namely: Robert Lark, owner of a truck line from Chicago to Clear Lake; Mick Karzmarski , who resisted matrimony and is now making a million selling shock absorbers for baby buggies; Bert Hanson, pitcher for the Chicago White Socks; Ivan Paulson, full back for the University of Wisconsin; and Red Swager and his wife, the former Delores Kennetz, who now own a ranch out West and are in the bullshipping business.
13Word has just been received that Dorothy Dudczak and Dick Junkans will be with us later. Dorothy, who has just returned from a concert tour in Europe, developed car trouble somewhere in New York State and had to send for Dick, outstanding mechanic in a large New York garage.

absence is explained by the fact that one of his favorite holsteins showed signs of

hoof rot at the last minute. Incidently, Doug owns a large dairy farm near Clear Lake.
The Grand Reunion has been a great success as you can see by the faces of the 1950 graduates a few hours later. They said their farewells and now as each go their own way, they think of the days gone by and wonder if they will ever see their classmates again. Their eyes are dimmed with tears, but yet they smile as the past is well worth remembering.

On September 7, 1949 forty green, but eager freshmen started their career in high school. In October they were given a jolting welcome by the sophomores in the form of an initiation. Another thrilling e-vent was Homecoming because their float won first place in the parade. They work by the Motto: “We know we’re good; we’re only trying to prove it. ’BACK ROW: R. Wood, J.

Under the able supervision of Mr. Goor the Pep Club, composed of thirty members, has produced one of the most successful Homecomings thus far. The bonfire, parade, game, and dance drew large crowds. The success was largely due to the outstanding co-operation of the village business places and the hard work of the students. The officers are: President, Dorothy Dudczak; Vice-President, Joanne Peterson; Sec.-Treas., Virginia Martin.

The club officers drew up a permanent constitution which was accepted by the club members.

Clear Lake had the best football season that it has had in recent years with a record of five wins, one tie, and one defeat.
The “big" game of the season was the homecoming tilt with the conference leader, Chetek. They took a 12-0 lead in the first quarter, and by halftime the game was tied 12-12. As the final whistle sounded the Warriors were victorious with a 31-12 score.
The Warriors were the idols of the school when they defeated our rival, Clayton, under their new lights 32-14.

Clear Lake's 1949-50 basketball season brought disap-
pointment as the Warriors, winning two out of eight games, came out third in the Lakeland Conference.
The big thrill of the season was giving Chetek their first loss in twelve games. This make a record nightas Ike Paulson scored twenty points.
The district tournaments also brought us dismay when we were defeated by Luck and Milltown. Ike Paulson received the honor of being selected on the all-tournament team for the second year.
The seniors, winning over the sophomores, juniors and faculty, were champions of the class tournaments. We also won the trophy in our junior year.
This year there are six lettermen graduating. They are: N. Swager, I. Paulson, E. Emerson, N. Peterson, R. Lark, and J. Rivard.
