GENERAL INFORMATION: Many people have asked how many graduates in each class - January had 105 and June 264. We located all but 21 people in the January class, but could not locate (approximately) 122 persons from June. The Highland Parker published a "Missing Personsll list for us, however, we had very little response.


"THOSE WERE THE DAYS MY FRIENDS, WE THOUGHT THEY'D NEVER END" •.•...... But somehow they did, and here we are ten years later, ten pounds heavier (?) maybe only ten dollars richer, but undoubtedly ten times wiser 0

Remember how happy we were to be, students at last at good old H.P. Button-down collars, Burmuda shorts, white wool socks, oh we were such sports! Different problems arose with all our new classes, and to add to confusion, we had to show passes. White slips, pink slips, forged notes you bet - how hard it was to get out for a cigaretteo Algebra, English, History and then; Geometry, Chemistry, Language and Gym. Kellogg, Conrad, Daas and Hiller, Hixson, Phenix, Solomon and Miller. Fraser, Paulsen, Morgan and Toy, Barnhart, Blanock, and Madame Roy. Williams, Smink, Thomas and Wright, Hayden, Martin, Boze and Knight. Some of these teachers we'll never forget (even though we'd like to, we haven't quite yet!). Remember the Pizzerama, French Fries and Cokes, the Juke box, the gossip, and a few bad jokes. Does anyone still go out to the Pole? remember that as a goal?

To park on the "cool side",

Spectator papers and a loud pep rally, combinations on lockers in Tin Pan Alley. The basketball games were always a thrill. time" to Bobby Jo Hill?

Our first dates, our last dates, I guess we'll never forget, the hayrides, the parties, the people we met. r

Our Washington trip, our Senior Prom. days are all gone.

It's hard to realize those

If you will try keeping in touch \'/i th me regarding any changes in addresses (or just remember my last name.), we'll certainly try getting together for our 20th. year Reunion. (We'll be almost 40!! - what a horrible thought .... it was hard enough getting up the nerve to come at 28!).
