Our homerooms were held in Study Hall. Hie officers were President, Richard Rex; Vice-President, William Kersten; Secretary, Charles Gilbert; Treasurer, Earbara Stager. The two Student Council members were Delphine Rzeppa and Charles Warner. Miss Eradley and Coach Greenstein have been our competent advisers throughout our high school years. From the beginning we proved to be an independent and aggressive class. We had previously chosen our class colors, motto, and flower. Our colors were kelly green and white, the motto, T, Up the Ladder Step by Step, and our flower, a white rose. We had a balance of $55. 51 in our treasury at the beginning of our Freshman year. We decided on $1.25 each for dues. In order to finance our future Senior trip, we found ourselves searching for money-making schemes. Hie idea of selling game-schedule pencils was suggested and accepted. Hiis venture was quite profitable, for we gained nearly $20. Karyn Lozon and Robert Baker represented our class as king and queen at the Senior Carnival. On September 3, 1947, with Robert Baker, as President; Richard Rex, as Vice- President; Judy Duncan, as Secretary; and Barbara Stager, as Treasurer, we entered our Sophomore year.Members of the Student Council were Delphine Rzeppa, Lydia Day, William Kersten and Charles Warner. We made $56.90 on the selling of baseball pennants and shields with ,, Algonac ,, on them. This raised our treasury from $188.29, to $245.19. For added profit we raised our dues to $3.00 per person. Earbara Stager and Tom Ishmael were our king and queen of the 1947 Senior Car- nival. When we entered our Junior year in 1948, our home room meetings were changed to the commercial room. Our officers were as follows :President, Charles Warner; Vice- President, Charles Gilbert; Secretary, Judy Duncan; Treasurer, Karyn Lozon. Our four Student Council members were William Kersten, Delphine Rzeppa, Richard Rex, and Lydia Day. Our first project of that year was a magazine selling contest between the boys and girls. Hie boys won and received a party as their reward. We then added 8 small amount of money to our treasury by selling maize and blue mechanical pencils. The next outstanding event for our class was the J-Hop held on January 21, 1949 Our theme was " Winter Wonderland " . Our profit on this dance was $90 — the largest any class had ever reported. At the J-Hop we raffled a small white Philco radio, and made $88.00 on this ven ture. On June 3, 1949, we gave the Seniors their banquet. We held it in Sarnia , Canada; at " Kenwick-on- the-Lake " . It was a very successful and memorable affair. Our Senior Carnival king and queen for this year were Charles Warner and Judy Duncan. So ended our most eventful Junior Year. Our final and most glorious year began September o, ±949. Our class officers for the year were: President, Charles Warner; Vice- Pr e si- dent, Richard Rex;Secretary, Judy Duncan; Treasurer, Karyn Lozon. Our representatives in Student Council were: V illlam Kersten (who was president), Charles Gilbert, Charles Eckfield, and Richard Rex. On November 11, we staged our Senior Carnival which was 8 huge success . Shirley Dahl and Richard Lozon were our class queen and king. Next, we undertook the selling of magazines.lt was not as successful as we had hoped but it did add a fairly large sum to our treasury. Our sale of Christmas cards during the latter part of November resulted in a large profit. Hie illustrious Seniors on February 21, 1950, successfully sponsored a donkey basketball game. April found us knee-deep in feverish preparation for our Senior play 11 Mumbo Jumbo " . Consisting of six boys and six girls, the cast performed superbly, making it one of the most enjoyable plays ever presented. In June, Kenwick-on- the-Lake was trie perfect setting for the Juni or- Senior Banquet. Baccalaureate on June 12 began our final week as Seniors. Then came that goal toward which the forty- two of us had been working — that night of nights — June 16, 1950 — the graduation exercises I 19 SENIOR V.ILL I Bob Baker — leave my desire to be a Doctor to Bo-Bo Brady Evelyn Bates--leave my willingness to help to Fred Genaw Cay Cartwright — leave my bottle of peroxide to Elizabeth Avers Shirley Dahl — leave my laugh to Tony Sampler.

After winning the undisputed baseball championship of the St. Clair County League in 1948, the 1949 Squad with many new faces in the line-up made a real bid to repeat for the honors, but had to settle for a tie with Marine City and Marys- ville for first place, although both were defeated by the local Timber Swingers. Baseball is proving to be a very popular sport since the league re- vived it in 1946 and the interest on the part of the boys has been spontaneous. 1949 Results Algonac 14 New Baltimore 4 it 7 Marysville 4 n 11 Holy Cross 4 it 3 New Baltimore 2 it 3 St. Stephens 6 it 13 Richmond 2 it 2 Port Huron 3 it 2 St. Clair 3 it 5 Memohis 9 tt 5 St. Clair 3 it 8 Marine City 7 TS T7 50 Track First Row D.
