Here are some pictures Barb sent.
And we threw in a few photographs she doesn't know we had!
High School Friends
You didn't send us this one, Barb.
Wanna guess who did?
This one was labeled "Slumber Party."
This is a sleep position?
Barb sent us this photo
but I don't recognize the "faces".
Barb shared several photos of her pals.

   Beverly Reynolds is about to be crowned the first Football Queen of Southeast High School at the victory dance held in our gym. Beverly's attendants are: Carol Gain, Barbara Fuller, and Dianne Maple.
   A real cool senior hen party was held at Claudia Horn's house the other evening. Some of the senior girls seen ─ rather heard ─ were: Liz Crosby, Cecelia Spann, JoAnn Fish, Barb Fuller, Shirley Scherrer, and the Ducates.
   Picnics, picnics and more picnics!! Duke Harrison and Nanette Preston, Harry Hutton and Barb Fuller, Jerry Campbell and Leann Riggs, Randy Smithmier and Phyllis Graf, and Bill Daily and Nancy Tolen really had a swell time. Liz Crosby and Joe Lamers also had fun on their picnic.
   Some senior gals really had a swell picnic. After stuffing themselves they all went down to the memorial fountain on Meyer, took off their shoes and went wading. Oletha Ludwig and Shirley Ducate were the victims of foul play. Seems someone shoved them in much to the hilarity of: Dianne Maple, Mabel Greenlee, Leann Riggs, and Barbara Fuller.
In The Spotlight
   Lovely and gracious Barbara Fuller, one of Southeast's most outstanding seniors steps into the Spotlight this week.
   Barbara's leadership abilities were shown when she was chosen to be secretary of the senior class and a member of the senior business committee. She was a candidate for Round Table president.
   Her pleasing personality combined with natural charm and grace won her the honor of being an attendant to the football queen and ROTC princess.
   Barbara has been president of the Junior Red Cross. She was treasurer and sergeant-at-arms of Centinelas. At the present time she is finance chairman of the Pep Club and assistant secretary of Teen Town.
   Her outstanding work on the 1952-1953 Tower Staff enabled her to become a member of Quill and Scroll.
   She has participated in Knightlites four years.
   Missouri University is Barbara's choice for college. Her ambition is to become a teacher.

Victory Dance Held
Dianne Maple Crowned Queen;
Candidates Act as Attendants
    Exuberant spirits and spring frocks were adorned for the basketball victory dance. 
   The highlight of the evening was the crowning of the basketball queen and her attendants.  Dianne Maple, the queen, reigned over the dance with the aid of her attendants, Gale Horton, Barbara Fuller, Linda Harling, and Julie Thomson.
   At 9:00, the blue and red decorated gym was fully lighted.  The queen and her attendants were escorted to the throne.  Speeches were made and crowns were placed on the girls by Mr. McMillan, Mr. Powell, Mr. Adams, Mr. Bates, and Danny Stan-ley.  With the Stand Stanton band providing music, the royalty danced memorable dances with the one who had crowned them.
   The girls then danced wit their escorts.  They were: Dianne and Pat Cartwright, Gale and Harvey Greer, Barbara and Harry Hutton, Linda and Danny Stanley, and Julie and Bob Butler.
   Dianne wore a white formal with a corsage of red roses.  Barbara Fuller and Gale Horton wore blue gowns with pink roses.  Linda wore lavender and Julie wore aqua.  Both dresses were adorned with orchids.  All in all, the basketball victory dance was a complete success.
All of these articles came from issues
of the Tower published our senior year.
