Senior Class History Looking back upon three successful years, the class of l955 can claim both victories and defeats. It has been the first to make tradition and the last to break it. In their sophomore year, under the leadership ot Pete Wilfert and the guidance of Nancy White and Bill McCammon. class members leaped over the tortures oi initiation and darted off to a bounding start. Many ol the seniors will remember the balloons that cluttered the halls. the stacks of clothing that brought the class second place in the competitive clothing drive, the sopho- more assemblywith the presentation oi the play. "The Little Red Schoolhouse," and finally "Vienna," the class act which took third place. Under the leadership of Ted Aberson and advice of Bill McCammon and Mrs. Mabel Ehrlich. the junior year was even more prosperous. A smash hit play, "Going Places," was presented in the spring. First prize in class acts was taken with the presentation oi "Hour of Destiny," and the Iunior-Senior Prom with its "Aloha" theme was a great success. Ted Aberson was again elected to lead the class in its greatest year. Because of the de- parture of Bill McCammon. the class once again changed advisers. and Mr. Hackert joined Mrs. Ehrlich in guiding the class. "The Dark House," senior class play, was presented and although it ran only one night, provided the financial backing for "Snowflake Hurry," the Christmas Prom. Graduation ended the three exciting high school years of the class of 1955. Making and breaking records right up to the last day. the class of 1955 became the first to graduate from the new school. 5 .. , .x fs 2. 2 . X ii: 5 35.3 Mx xx x SE ,Q :K K . X f H if W. QE ..
