SetUat "I'm a senior now!" How often we have proudly repeated these words during the last nine months! Only now, as we walk out the doors of our high school, as a student for the last time, do we realize how lucky we were to be able to say this. Our four years in high school have flown by and we have only memories left of our school days. As we look back now, the one- act play was a highlight in our freshman year. We got a funny but proud feeling to see our own friends and classmates on the stage before us, acting as we had seen it done in senior high. But our chance to be in senior high came fast, and it seems only a short time ago when we were hanging silver stars and blue crepe paper for the 1949 Christmas Dance. In our sophomore year our feeling of importance was great as we at- tended teen canteen, senior high auditoriums, and went to the school dances without a special invitation. The fall of 1950 again brought the Sadie Hawkins Dance. We used dogpatch characters in huge frames for the decorations, drawn and painted by the artists of the class. Taking part in Hilarities and assist- ing with the Alex High Times helped to make our junior year complete. "Neptune's Garden," does that remind you of an im- portant night in our lives as juniors? Of course, the Junior-Senior Prom and Spring Party are two events we'll never forget. Buying formals, wearing new suits and having the girls wearcorsages all made us feel older. "Our Miss Brooks" was the Junior Class Play which was pre- sented on May 10 and 11. Not un- til the class of '51 graduated in June did we begin to realize that we were now the class that reigned over Alex High. All last summer we beamed when we said, "We're seniors", and when September 3 rolled around, the mighty class of 1952 was able to yell S-S-SEN-I-I-IOR and have the feeling of leadership and im- portance. In September the class pictures were taken and we began to work on our '52 Alexian. Before long Thanksgiving and Christmas were in the past. Yes, September-- October-- November -- and December had passed by helplessly. Our SeniorC'.ass Play started the spring's activities followed closely by exchanging pictures and learning to keep the beat as we practiced marching for graduation. Honor Day and the Senior Banquet came and went and as the high school band played "Pomp and Circumstance", we marched up the aisle at our commencement ex- ercises. The stage was beautifully decorated and as Mr. Hafdal gave each one of us our diploma, we felt a bit sad, because now we were leaving dear old Alex High. SENIOR CLASS PRESIDENT JIM FITZGERALD In addition to being president of the senior class, Jim also heads the 1951 Cardinal Band. Key club, "A" Club, Thespians and instrumental groups occupy most of his spare moments but he still finds time to work part time at Kolstads Clothing Store. SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS -- Vice President, DWAYNE SODER- HOLM: Secretary-Treasurer, AUDREY TVRDIK. 11
