We, the Seniors of Alton l-ligh School, wish to leave a memory of our past with the under-
classmen. We have spent four short years in high school. Into these years we have crowded
many helpful and happy experiences. We are now leaving, our dear high school days to go into
the world to continue our education or to work, hoping to e successful citizens of America.
On September 6, 1948, we entered Alton High School as freshmen. We came from country
schools and the grade school. During our freshman year our class officers were: Gerald Smith,
presidentg Jay Oliva, vice-president: Florence Marie Peterson, secretary-neasurerg and Mr. Oliver
Roberts was our sponsor. Later in the term we were happy to welcome Junior Pratt to our class.
During the term we lost one member, Eugene Watson.
The following fall, when school opened, we were happy to add to our class David Brecken-
ridge from Woodston, Marvin Dimond from Gaylord, and an old classmate, Madeline Stanfield,
who had been going to school in Pasadena, California. It was during that year that we lost Jay
Oliva, a very dear classmate, in an auto accident. Our president or the sophomore year was
Warren Nichols and Mr. Gouldie was our sponsor.
Then came the junior year, which brought many interesting and exciting adventures. Our
sponsors were Mr. Jansen and Mr. B8l'1iilgllS: for class president we chose Marjorie Smith. That
year we were happy to have Ellen Hins w as a member of our class, but we were sorry to lose
David Breckenri ge.
Our most exciting event of the year was the Junior-Senior Banquet. We put a great deal-of
hard work on the banquet, but it was a most enjoyable occasion of that year. We want to
especially thank all of those who helped with it.
Another exciting event that took place durin that year was the junior play. The name of
our play was "Half Past Teen". We want to thani all who helped with it.
Now, as we are seniors, we think back over the last three years of our life and high school
career. We have, no doubt, had hard knocks and bumps, but we enjoyed each year as we will
never enjoy any future years. We chose Terry Dibble as our president and Mr. Benignus a ain
as our sponsor. We wish to thank him for the help he gave us with our play. Also all of the
work he did in planning all of our graduation activities. This year we had the misfortune to lose
Imogene Deichen, Ellen Hinshaw, and Marjorie Smith.
This beincg our senior and last year we have had the most enjoyable year of all. We wanted
an annual an we have one. We worked and slaved, but we were happy, for we did it willingly.

We chose for our senior play, "If Mother Only Knew", an event to which we had long looked
We must and want to say that we would not and could not have attained this great height,
if it had not been for the wonderful parents, teachers, and superintendent along the way who
have encouraged us and helped us with untiring strength.
