Kathy Schmidt John Wlttenberger Ann Paulsen Kathy Schmidt If you walk into -the bandroom some hour when the band is in session, you are sure to see her tooting away on her clarinet; or any Tuesday or Friday morning, if you stick your head in the doorway of the vocal music room, sure enough, you will see her singing merrily along with the mixed chorus. Kathy believes that extra-curricular activities are as much a part of school as classes are. In addition to these, Kathy is also kept busy with clarinet quartet and Thespians; and her outside activities include being secretary of the Luther League and Sunday School teacher. When Kathy has any spare time you'll either find her buried in a book or magazine, dancing, or else leisurely devouring a pizza, or some chop suey, which are her favorites when it comes to food. She also might possibly be polishing her class ring, which she considers her prize possession. Kathy admits her secret ambition is to manage and run a hotel because of all the interesting people you would meet; however, beware if you are a gum-chomper (her pet peeve), for you may find yourself without a room! Asked about her future plans, she said she is undecided as of the present time; however, she would like to enter into the field of airline personnel training.

"I have no favorite car," says John. "If it can get you there and back for a reasonable cost, it's a | good car." i Pickles, onions, and vinegar are not favorites of John's. People who are fat is a rather unusual pet peeve, but it happens to be his. . In the future, John plans to attend the University of Michigan where he mil major in physics. After he has completed his required years of college, he hopes to work on some type of atomic reactor. The Class of '61 wishes a future scientist the best of luck! * * * * * Ann Paulsen When you walk into the V & J Cafe on Sunday morning, a redheaded waitress may wait on you.

Her favorite car is an Oldsmobtle, and orange sherbet ice cream is her favorite food. While listening to the radio, Ann likes to polish her nails and fix her hair. Then when she is all ready, she likes to go dancing. Ann is a member of the library and annual staffs at P. H. S. Her favorite subject is science and she hopes to be a laboratory technician after graduation this spring. * • * * John Wittenberger John Wittenberger may well be referred to as the terror of the wrestling mat. John, small, but mighty, is the present conference champ in the 103-127 pound division. Although wrestling is his favorite sport, John has also participated in football and track. His favorite subjects are physics and chemistry in which he maintains an excellent academic average. This boy has no favorite hobby, or for that matter no hobby at all.
