SENIOR OFFICERS Charles Dallman ,......,,.. .. President Ruth Woolet .....4.,.,. Vice-President Lee Dorman ,r.....,..,....,...,.... Secretary Robert Kendall ....,........ .. .Treasurer 1940-41 HISTORY N September 2, l94O, forty-seven dignified C?l Seniors came tripping the light fantastic through the halls of our great Anderson to room 29. Here we found Mrs. Bath and Mr. Srofe waiting to counsel us, and through their teach- ing of democracy, we elected our offi- cers as follows: Charles Dallman, presi- dent: Ruth Woolet, vice-president, Lee Dorman, secretary: and Robert Kendall, treasurer. Our first activity was a picnic at Stanberry Park where we bid au revoir to Mr. Srofe and gave him a present as a small token of our friendship. We couldn't feel too badly about Mr. Srofe's leaving because we realized he was re- ceiving the chance which he so richly deserved. After eleven years at Ander- son Mr. Srofe will be missed by every- one, but we want to wish him from the very bottom of our hearts the success which he has earned so thoroughly. Mr. von Waldon graciously filled the place made vacant by Mr. Srofe until the newly appointed teacher, Mr. Richard Herron, could arrive here. Mr. Herron was taken into our school activities just like an old friend. We chose American Literature as the theme of our Senior assembly. We por- trayed some of the poems written by many famous poets of America. The most outstanding of these poets being Stephen Foster and Paul Lawrence Dun- bar. At. our Christmas Party we exchanged lU cent gifts. We had great merriment in distributing the gifts and also in playing with the toys. Why not? We, as all previous classes, had to decide our class motto, flowers, and colors. ln March we chose as our motto "Faith is the strength by which a shat- tered world shall emerge into the light," the motto of the noted Helen Keller. As our flowers--the American beauty rose and lily of the valley, and for our colors, we chose white and gold. Also in March we decided to wear caps and gowns for

graduation, the girls wearing white and the boys wearing blue. On April 9 all of the class' studious pupils piled into a bus and set out to see the big city of Cincinnati. Upon arriv- ing, we went to the Court House. From here we all traversed to the City Hall where the councilmen entertained us by their humorous slander of the city's work. The class play, "Magnificent Obses- sion," by Lloyd C. Douglas was pre- sented May 2. lt dealt with psychology and personality development. lt was rumored about town that we had a play that we couldn't handle, but with Mrs. Bath, director, and Mr. Herron, assistant director, it emerged a great success. On May l4 we went for a hay ride to Sharon Woods. Everything was going along just fine until one of our diligent students became a little too diligent and fell into the lake. And then came one of the big events of the yearethe lunior-Senior Prom. The luniors surprised us all by having a Mother Goose Banquet. lust as we came in the door, we met Mother Goose herself. We also met many other char- acters from the land of make-believe. We set up the first part of our Chapel program to resemble a court room, hav- ing Peace as the Plaintiff and War as the Defendant. Both sides of the case were heard by the ludge, Civilization. The second part was on the comical side, this being the part consisting of the will and prophecy. COne never knows what the future holdsll Our Baccalaureate Service was held May 18 with Rev. C. E. Fryman giving the sermon. The Girls' Glee Club enter- tained everyone with delightful music. Then the biggest event for the Sen- iors-Graduation. Dean L. A. Pechstein, professor of the College of Education at the University of Cincinnati, gave the address. The Cincinnati Federal Sym- phonic Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Peter Paul Loyanich, furnished the music as it had previously done. The morning after graduation the Sen- iors breakfasted at Ault Park. Mr. Herron served as chief chef loh, what a rush on the bicarbonate of sodall All joking aside, we really did have an outstanding year and We think Mrs. Bath and Mr. Herron are two of the most congenial people that we could have had for our Senior home room advisers.
