l959 SENIOR CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT: Bob Abel, Kay Abel, Christine Nemec, Maureen Gillaspie, Blaine Dinsmore, Roy Hunt Judy Fosheim Sadie Dennis Laurel Merkle Peggy Flom, Mrs. Elsie Haddock, Sponsor. Class Poem We are fifty years down the line ln this new year of '59 And in this good old Midland School, Ten good members have passed the rule. First of all comes Bobby Abel And on his sweater he has a label. Very active, but a little small, He won this letter in Basketball. Kay Abel with her background so fair Will be off to a salon to work on hair. Fix it up plretty, and comb it nice. lf it isn't too difficult, she'll follow advice. Sadie Dennis with her bright remark In her happy daysf sang like a lark. Now with a diploma that she has won A good job will be waiting for her to come. Blaine Dinsmore, a comical clown Never in a lake will jump to drown. He'll be a mechanic and work on his car And tend to his farm, that's better by far. Peggy Flom, a girl of delight Never too often did she get in a Fight. Yet she is quiet, quick and smart, Has to life given a good start. by Blain Dinsmore Judy Foshiem, as all can see ls as happy as can be. A neighbor has won her heart And soon, she hopes, they will never part. Maureen Gillaspie with knowledge and cheer Works an so easily her last year. Of all the twelve terms she has gone, l know she never was in the wrong. And now Roy Hunt we must mention The home guard gives him a small pension. He studies a little now and then, He is the tallest of our ten. Laurel Merkle, Editor will be Of the New York Times, you wait and see! She to the Eastern states will go Make Midland's name famous, that l know! Christine Nemec with a mind of her own Does her work willingly without a groan. Through a nurse's school she will get her training Then to a hospital her desire will be aiming. Now that we are gone from school, Our little "cherubs" will join the rule They will pass the twelve years too, Start their youngsters as me and you.
