 Jlibsiti THE MIRAGE 19 48 of ADAMS HIGH SCHOOL Sidman, PennsylvaniaThrough the day with . . . Our Staff The Seniors The Underclassmen Our Extra-Curricular ActivitiesTime is the measure of duration. Since the beginning of civilization, time has measured man's life. On a smaller scale, time regulates and measures our school life. We start and conclude our school day according to time. We have a definite time when we go to class, and a definite time when we may participate in an extra-curricular activity. Because of its importance, time has been chosen as the theme for THE MIRAGE. We have endeavored to present the important moments of our life at Adams High from the time we entered its doors to start the day until we left at the conclusion of our activities.HIJR STAFF Board of Education Supervising Principal Principal T eachers Nurse Doctor Dentist Secretaries Bus Drivers CustodiansHUH BOARD OF EDUCATION Mr. Charles Walsh Mr. Michael Mihalick Mr. John Tibbens, Treasurer Mr. Henry Hendrickson, Vice-President Mr. James Patterson, President Mr. Roy Rhoads, Secretary Mr. Henry Fox Mr. David Smith, Supervising Principal The first Tuesday of every month the Board of Education meet to discuss the problems which are confronting us, the students of A.

Peracchino—Treasurer The Senior Class, smallest class in the high school, began its final year at Adams High with an enrollment of eighty-three students. Mr. Thomas L. Smith was appointed class adviser, but later resigned and was replaced early in December by Mrs. Marian Crane. The first event in the career of the class occured on December the fourth and fifth in the form of the Senior Play. This was followed in quick succession by the Christmas Dance held on the evening of December nineteenth. The Senior-Sophomore Valentine Party, another annual happening, was held in February. The farewell occasion was the Junior-Senior Prom held May fourteenth, nine- teen hundred forty-eight. These were occasions which those of us who attended will never for- get. We bid a fond farewell to the high school, and we know that our impressions and memories will never fade.

On October thirty-first we were the guests of the Junior Class at the annual Halloween Party.
