The Senior Ploy Director: John L Bucher Assistant Director: Kent Locke, Jr. Stage Manager: Walter Skantze The Senior Play, "Seventeen Is Awfully Young,"was pre- sented to a sold-out house on November 24, 1953. Credit for the success of this production was due not only to the fine group of assistants behind the scenes, but also to the eleven members of the cast, who played their parts with the great, good spirit of true Thespians.

19 Class History 54 As we the class of 1954 look back over the preceding four years, a cara- van of memories unfolds before us. We started our high school days on September 8, 1950. At that time there were twenty-three of us--Patricia Shields, Helen LaCroix, Claire O'Brien, Nancy Nickerson, Kent Locke, Loretta Emerson, Gwen Minor, Douglas Dodge, Joe O'Brien, Roger Leighton, Robert Young, Lewis Dow, Robert Hillsgrove, Elizabeth Manley, Norma Glidden, Trenna Bartlett, Dorothea Eaton, Edmund Miles, Donald Joy, George Thoroughood, Walter Rollins, William Messier, and Ernestine Nockles. Later that fall George Thoroughood and William Messier left us. Soon came the dreaded initiation, a magazine sale of which we were champions, a dance, and then we were sophomores. In our second year, counting noses, we discovered that we had losttwo classmates and gained one. Claire O'Brien and Justine DeYoung were the missing members and Ann Leonard our newmember. During the fall two more joined us--Walter Skantze from New Jersey, and David McGrath. Ernestine Nockles moved to Wolfeboro that fall. Our home room teacher was Miss Do- bens. We started the year by winning the magazine sale once again. This year we were denied the privilege of initiating the freshmen and instead were asked to give a party in their honor - imagine! Ann Leonard and Kent Locke were our Carnival Queen and King contestants that year. Who won? Oh, why we did of course! We proceeded merrily with a St. Patrick's Day party and the Junior Prom and before we knew it we were juniors. As juniors we soon forgot inferiority complexes harbored from previous years. We were extremely proud of ourselves and our accomplishments. To our surprise and delight we regained a member, Claire O'Brien. Our home room teacher was Miss McDonough. In the fall Walter Rollins and David Mc- Grath left us, Trenna Bartlett and Dorothea Eaton left the following spring. By this time our class had dwindled to sixteen. We were once more the mag- azine campaign champions. That fall saw us busily preparing a food sale, a sample fair and selling autograph books. In the spring we held another suc- cessful food sale and then came the Senior Reception. We were seniors, at last. Since the first day of school on September 8, 1953, we have stopped hardly long enough to catch our breath. First came the magazine campaign and this year, as champs, we rated a party with all the ice cream we could eat. Oh, what a lot of tummy-aches that night! The annual Senior Play proved an over- whelming success and our Turkey Raffle was profitable, too. As sixteen busy seniors, we have spent our happiest and most carefree days at Alton High. Now we look forward to greater happiness and greater accomplishments in the world beyond high school. Gwen Minor 13
