...and HILL We, the graduating class of 1943, being of undetermined minds, as usual, do hereby will and bequeath the following, in the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and forty-three. First, we leave to the faculty all of our merits that we so deservedly received. Second, we leave to the Juniors our reserved seats in the last rows in Study Hall. Third, we leave to the Sophomores our sincere hope that they will have funds and the gas to take their senior trip when the time arrives. Fourth, we leave to the Freshmen our good behavior habits and we hope they won't forget them during their summer vacations. Fifth, we leave to dear old Alma Mater our sincere hope that the future classes will improve in subjects and good behavior where we so poorly have left off. Individually, we bequeath our most worthy characteristics, as follows: Ralph Siewert's athletic ability to Heinz Pioske. Jane Byer's shyness to Catherin Pallas. Shirley Ott's speed in typing to Thomas Wach. Robert KubalTs technique in Jitterbugging to Jane Pivonka. Vervaine Kolberg's natural curls to Gladys Denmark. Donald RothermeTs five-by-five figure to William Faust. Stanley Geipel's tall stories and height to Gerald Totzke. Ervin Markwald’s saving ability to Carl Shulz. Virginia Totzke's interest in government classes to Doris Kettlehut. Carolyn Kolberg leaves her regrets to all the girls in S. H. S., for she's taking that senior boy with her. The Machan Twin's ability to sing to Minnie Pooch and Lorraine Ott. Richard Wiley's stature to Wayne Higgle. Lester Geisler's tardiness to Donald Siewert. Leonard Pivonka's intelligence to LeRoy Spitzer. Page nine

The school term had opened again and twenty-seven frightened Freshmen gathered at the door of S. H. S. Finally one of the class boldly opened the door, the large corridor lay before us. Not knowing what would happen next, we timidly marched to the Study Hall and took seats next to each other. A large and very proud class, there were Vervaine Kolberg, Shirley Ott, Donald Rothermel, Stanley Geipel, Dora and Doris Machan (we still can't tell them apart), Carolyn Kolberg, Lester Geisler, Virginia Totzke, Bonnie Grieffendorf, Robert Kuball, Margaret Loshbough, Virginia DeFord, Marshall Ott, Norman Ott, Lillian Spitzer, Barbara Misich, Ervin Markwald, Mary Kitchen, Ralph Siewert, Anita Doroh, Azalene Hodder, Walter Neal, Gertrude Spitzer, Viola Mischke, Raymond Wutzke, and Ruth Rosenhagen. We organized and elected Shirley Ott, president; Vervaine Kolberg, vice-president; and Stanley Geipel, secretary-treasurer. We received and returned a party by the Sophomore class and the year ended with the annual picnic at Indian Lake. Our second year was here and this time we did not hesitate but proudly accepted our position as Sophomores. When the roll was called we found Lillian Spitzer, Bonnie Grieffendorf, Ruth Rosenhagen, Mary Kitchen, Viola Mischke, and Walter Neal had left us. In their places were Jane Byers, Clara Gorske, and Dale Baugher, leaving us 24 members. The officers this year were Shirley Ott, president; Vervaine Kolberg, vice-president; and Carolyn Kolberg, secretary-treasurer. The following year more changes had taken place in our lineup. We found Margaret Loshbough, Anita Doroh, Jane Byers, Barbara Misich, Clara Gorske, Marshall Ott, Norman Ott, Gertrude Spitzer, and Raymond Wutzke gone and Leonard Pivonka, Vernon Beckman, and Diane Bubanovich had joined us. Our officers were Lester Geisler, president; Donald Rothermel, vice- president; and Vervaine Kolberg, secretary-treasurer. We received class rings and presented our class play "The Ghost of Roaring Pines." We also gave the Seniors a formal banquet, leaving us with empty pockets! Seniors at last! Roll call this year left us without Azalene Hodder and Virginia DeFord. Jane Byers came back to Alma Mater, joined by Richard Wiley from Chicago. We made a change in the calendar of the school—we took our "Annual Skip-day" in the Fall. Our senior play was "Worrying Willie." Gas rationing makes it impossible for us to take a trip, but we are raising funds to have a good time even though we have to walk! Page eight

We are now in the post-war age and everyone has prospered 100 per cent. We are privileged to come to your homes tonight from our own fireside through the medium of the two-way television and radio hook-up. I have asked all of the '43 class members to be standing by for an interview this evening. In this way we may be separated by hundreds of miles but once we communicate with each other, we will be in each other's homes on the television screen. "This is Leonard Pivonka speaking, as the master of ceremonies for the class reunion. This? reunion is not only brought about to show what our class members became, but because we of the '43 class are all proud that we have done such a splendid service to ourselves and country since we left school in '43. "As the first member I will contact Ralph Siewert. Come in Mr. Ralph Siewert,—Come in on Channel 3—Come in. "Mr. Ralph Siewert, better known as 'Schmidt'; please tell us of your doings since '43." "I am now the owner of a 700-acre airport which is used for private planes only. Incidentally, I have fifty hangars, and four planes of my own. I am also an instrutor in flying. I received my biggest experience in flying after I had enlisted in the Army during World War II and became an "Ace." "Tell us 'Schmidt', do you miss the good old days of school?" "Yes, I do, for the reason that we cannot play basketball anymore and see our class members personally. However, even though I don't see my friends personally, I see them quite often through the help of television and radio." "I want to thank you very much and give to you and your family the best regards from all the other class members." "Signing off—channel 3,—Come in channel 4, are you receiving me? Come in Lester Geisler, come in." "I am now Lester Geisler, Mayor of Derby, Michigan. I know I didn't pay attention to it while at school, but the last two mayors were crooked so I am going to give the poeple of my town a break and do all I can for them while I hold my office. Besides being a mayor, I also own a 500-acre fruit farm and a 40-acre dairy farm, and have many hired hands. I am in the best of health and still as jolly as ever. Oh yes! Got an Army and Navy "E" award for pro- ducing so much food after and during the war. I give my regards to the rest of the class." "Thank you Les and there goes to you." "Calling Shirley Ott on same channel, come in." "Hello everybody, I haven't much to say because 1 started a career of a bookkeeper and after two years was married. I now have to tend to the business of being a housewife." Page ten
