DOSTER MONTGOMERY MORTON CLASS HISTORY In 1948, one hundred and forty-three students came together from Alexandria Jun- ior High, Cunningham, Orestes, and St. Mary's to start driving together for our Freshman year. Mrs. Slone, Mrs. Harlan, and Mr. Armstrong started us on the long drive ahead. We elected Jerry Etchison as president, Rosemary Blake as vice-president: secetary, Jim Laws CRemember his campaign speech, "I promise a chicken in every pot and sodas in the drink- ing fountains."J and Velma Wilson became our treasurer. We started selling magazine subscriptions to make money and exceeded the sales of the classes in former years. For a semester party we decided to have a pot luck supper at the Kanteen. Then to finish off the year, we went to Shady Side in Anderson for our class picnic. CRemember when Jim Laws fell in the river?j In 1949 we had driven several miles and were now Sophomores. Don Olsen became president with Gail Mull, Rosemary Blake, and Ruth Manring to help him along the way. Miss Hull and Miss French drove along with us. We planned a bake sale to make money. For our party we again went to the Kan- teen for a pot luck supper. During this year, the second team in basketball was made up entirely of sophomores, and we had two of our boys playing on the first team. We were really proud of them. For our class picnic we went to the park at Marion. It seems whenever our class gets near water someone falls in. This year was no exception, for Theresa Roesler came up out of the water dripping Wet. Our representatives to the Student-Teacher Co-Op were Paul Ellis, Patti McFerran, Theresa Roesler, and Jim Wishon. In 1950 Mr. and Mrs. Harding started us driving through our Junior year. We elected Jim Wishon president, Paul Ellis, vice-president, Marilyn Jones, secretary: and Rosemary Blake, treasurer. Our repesentatives to the Co-Op were Jerry Etchison, Myrna Watson, Frank- lin Closser, and Sara Nell Fox. Our first order of business was to decide on the color for our sweaters. QRemember how someone wanted orange and black?J After much disagreement, we finally decided on silver- grey sweaters with green letters. Next we chose our rings. Everyone thought they were the best looking rings they had ever seen. To make money we had a pot luck supper at the Kanteen and called it a Sok-Hop. CRemember how jerry measured everyone's foot as they came in the door?J In February we had a scrap drive. We gathered up all the old papers and junk we could find. It was hard work, but we had a lot of fun. CRemember how some of us went together and bought some lunch meat and had a picnic in Sara Nell's back yard?J For our junior trip we went to Purdue. There wasn't any water, but we had trouble with one of the buses on the way down. Then we started on our senior year. There wasn't much time to stop along the road, but we managed to have a good time all along the way. Jim Wishon was re-elected president with Charles Montgomery, Rosemary Blake, and Marilyn Jones to help him. Our Co-Op representatives were Myrna Watson, Sara Nell Fox, and Dick and Jerry Etchison. Mr. Dick, Mrs. Slone, and Mrs. Grantham were our supervis- ors. We ordered our announcements, and traded our senior pictures and cards. We sold things at the football and basketball games. Everything was rush, rush, rush, getting ready for that trip to Detroit. Then suddenly the rush was over. We parked our cars at the door of A.H.S. and began that walk down the aisle in our grey caps and gowns.

The class was led by Don Miller with Kelly McGill assist- ingg Jerry Peck was secretary and Susan Roberts, treasurer. Rep- resentatives to Student Teacher Co-Op were Charles Donahue, Marilyn Plackard, Sam Hughes, and Donald McClead. With 113 members to participate, they sponsored a scrap drive, held a Halloween Party at the Kanteen, and also had a skating party. They were very proud of their flashy gold and ruby rings. Mr. and Mrs. Henery Oberholtzer were their sponsors. SOPHOMORE CLASS ACTIVITIES Coming up the road are the 118 Sophomores who have dec- orated their car with green sweaters on which we see white let- ters, trimmed in gold. In the leading car are the supervisors, Miss Frazier and Mr. Buck. In the next car are the officials. Dallas Thomas is in the driver's seat with Noreen Beeman at his side. Jack King is the money taker, and Janet McCarty keeps the minutes. The co-op car comes next. It consists of Gail Willis, Jack Matney, Jane Bitner, and Lloyd F rix. This year the car was used to drive all Sophomores to the class party at the Kanteen. It was also used to drive everybody to the Square Dance that was sponsored by the Sophomores.

The Spectrum Staff walked into the journalism room that first day of school, and began work on the Tiger's Tale and the Spectrum. We decided to publish the biggest Tiger's Tale in history and we did too, for the first issue had eleven pages. We also put a banner head on our paper for the first time in the life of the Tiger's Tale. We can remember a great many things in that class-the heads, typing stencils, the time the mimeograph broke, how Don and Jerry always wanted the 'sports to be on the front page with their names in headlines, deciding on the dedication, agreeing on the theme, deciding between a hard back cover and a padded cover, the arguments Patti and Sara Nell had over the color. the baby pictures and the snap shots, the dummy, and many, many other things. But even with the troubles we had, when we look at this 1951 Spectrum we have a good feeling inside. You see, WE MADE THIS BOOK. L AUTOGRAPHS 3 , if.
