--THEIR CASE HISTORY--
It was September, and sixteen frightened Freshmen paused
before the S. H. S. door. Oh yes, we were Freshmen, shy and timid but
very proud. Slowly one of the "dare devils" from the class opened the
high school door and we immediately found seats next to each other.
There were Marilyn Griffendorf, Ruth Rothermel, sitting by her
sister Helen, Grover Mielke, Arthur Raab, Raymond Engler, Marie
Davis, Warren Schultz, Emma Fausak, Chester Mischke, Elaine
Fuzak, Jordon Jung, Stella Albright, Margaret Lockwitz, Gordon
Ott, Julia Zelko, and Joe Bodjack. We set up our organization and
chose Marie Davis, President; Grover Mielke, Vice President; and
Marilyn Griffendorf, Secretary and Treasurer. We received and re-
turned a party by the Sophomore class and closed the year with a
picnic at Indian Lake.
The following year we did not pause at the door, because our real
task as Freshmen was completed A change in the lineup left us
without Marilyn Griffendorf and Warren Schultz. However, Gerald
Haas joined us and that left us a total of fifteen class members.
Our officers were Joe Bodjack, President; Jordon Jung, Vice Presi-
dent; Marie Davis, Secretary; and Grover Mielke, Treasurer.
In our Junior year we lost one member, Gordon Ott, but Bino
Da Dan came back to Alma Mater, and Norma Siewert and Adeline
Fries! were promoted to the Senior class. We presented our play
"Dotty and Daffy." We also ordered class rings.
Seniors, at last! When we called roll, we found that Chester
Mischke had left us, but we had several new members: Lizabeth
Gorske, Mary Jane Pooch, and Margaret Holland. We immediately
started plans for raising money for our trip to Washington, D. C.

- - - AND PROPHECY
We now interrupt this television broadcast to show you and tell you about
a reunion of sixteen famous persons.
They are not known as the class of "41" to the public, but as the best
persons in their fields of work. Many of them have not seen their classmates
during those past ten years and they are the happiest of the class. But now
the last member is arriving and in they go for the reunion dinner.
While they are eating, allow me to read to you what these old classmates
are doing today. Helen Rothermel has become a first-class secretary to a
foremost filibusterer. Elaine Fuzak is the first woman explorer to fly on all her
explorations in the great South American jungle, Cuba, and the U. S. Norma
Siewert is a great beautician, and is giving our fourth-term president a finger
wave. Mary Jane Pooch is the toughest newspaper woman to ever get the
woman's title for Boxing. Jordon Jung is very busy, as Chief Engineer in
charge of the construction of new naval bases in the Pacific. Adeline Friesl is
the owner of America's Biggest Beauty Academy. Lizabeth Gorske holds the
position as a bookkeeper at Emlong's, the World's Largest Nurseries. Mar-
garet Lockwitz is a great beautician. Grover Mielke is building the bridge
across the Straits of Machinae. Joe Bodjack is the "Big Shot" behind America's
largest chain stores. His prices have upset all the trades in this country. He
sells anything from pretzels to battleships. Marie Davis is in charge of the
drafting room of a large automobile factory. Her new styles have met with
great success throughout the U. S. and the rest of the world. Margaret Hol-
land is one of America's most popular woman flyers. She owns her own plane
and her experience as an American Airline Stewardess has made her the flier
that she is today. Gerald Haas has been made a member of the F. B. I Arthur
Raab is a pilot in the Army Air Corps. Ruth Rothermel is a comedian on the
Baby Snooks program. Bino Da Dan is Chicago's greatest District Attorney.
All of us have to admire this class. They chose for their class motto these
three words, "Nothing Without Work " They have all worked hard to be
what they are. They know what it means to work hard and found it out
during their senior year.
