Early one bright, sunny morning in September, 1946, the doors
of Altoona High School swung open and welcomed 13 quaking Freshman
into 1t's fathery arms. One week later the doors opened again, and
the fatherly arms threw us back out! Seriously, though we were the
freshest freshmen ever seen at A.H.S. We were so fresh the teachers
put us in cold storage to age us!
- We early made ourselves prominent in school activities and Mr.
Pederson's office. Charles was perhaps the most prominent in that
rom . We contributed two cheerleaders, four basketball players,and
numreous spitwads to our Alma Mater. Class roll for the year was:
Josephine Asmussen, Gaylord Grondin, Ione Henning, Alice Horswill,
Joan Johnson, Delores Kersten, Charles Marquardt, James O'Keefe and
Delores Gunderson, Eugene Oldfield, Donald Parker, Bob Rask, and
Betty Shafer. Our class officers for our first year were:
James O'Keefe ---------------- President
Ione Henning ----------------- Vice President
Charles Marquardt ------------ Sec. and Treasurer
In 47, we became Sophmores and made life very miserable for the
new freshmen. This year we lost James O'Keefe and Delores Gunderson
but gained Orlin Simonson, keeping ourlclass roll at 12. We were
very active in Glee Club, Dramatics,Class plays, basketball, and
eraser throwing. We wre inactive in Algebra and anything that resem-
bled work. Our class officers were:
Bob Rask --------------------- President
Joan Johnson ----------------- Vice President
Eugene Oldfield -------------- Sec. and Treasurer
The next year we became Junlorsnnaturallyn and were quite lofty
and sophisicated. Alice Horswlll and Gaylord Grondin left us so now
our number had decreased to ll. We made up for quantity with quality
however, and had perhaps our most peaceful year. Class officers for
our Junior year were:
Bob Rask -------------------- President
Ione Henning ---------------- Vice President
Eugene Oldfield ------------- Sec. and Treasurer
When September of 49 rolled around, we creaked our aging bones,
threw the even more aging doors of A.H.S. for the final year. We
lost two members, Josephine Asmussen and Orlin Slminson, but we gained
one Beverly Abrahamson, so that our final number was 9. Ione, Gharles
Joan, and Delores, started school in the first grade at Altoona.
We face the future wfml open hearts, open minds, open arms, and
empty pocketbooks. From these meager beginnings, who know to what
heights we may rise. Our officers for this year:
Donald Parker --------------- President
Joan Johnson ---------------- Vice President
Eugene Oldfield ------------- Sec. and Treasurer
