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,
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-
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
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.
