Senior Sonny Loud President Ruble Smith Vice President Sue Powell Secretary Harold Pillow Treasurer THE LAST YEAR What is it like to be a Senior? It is the sudden happiness and excitement of growing up, the golden, buoyant feeling of importance, and the ever-present tinge of sadness that comes with approach¬ ing graduation. But these ingredients are not the only makings of a Senior; it is the thousands of small, everyday happenings that complete this magic picture, just little events, but important enough to command a page in the mind’s scrapbook of memories. Sun-bronzed boys and girls, still dreaming wistfully of vacation, reluctantly put aside these light, rosy memories and opened their books. Heads were bent over schedules and studies, social living and economics. The long-awaited senior year had begun! The incomparable look of adoration and awe, which crossed a little Freshman’s face whenever a dignified Senior deigned to speak, brought a light, treasured feeling of importance, of belonging. There was that happy day when we received our high school rings. Only a Senior can realize deep down in his heart that this was not just a bit of metal and stone he wore, but a burning symbol and record of five years, five unforgettable years, sometimes star-studded with secret hopes and am¬ bitions; sometimes gray with shattered dreams, years flying so fast that the days tumbled over them¬ selves in their hasty flight, slow years, dragging like the proverbial turtle. Gallons of midnight oil were burned; hundreds of eyelids were propped open as studies grew harder. The fast-moving pace of club meetings each week and home work every night was strenuous, but no one considered dropping an activity. Days, overflowing with activity, flew swiftly by. Cold, tired winter stretched its icy arms, threw off its overcoat of drab gray and emerged as light, carefree spring. There began then, in a sudden rush of excitement, a gay whirl of parties introducing the close of the school year. The final realization that graduation was at hand came too suddenly. All at once the full meaning of the word was real—too true. Friends would be separated, perhaps forever; after high school the sheltered life provided by parents would be gone. Gaiety still prevailed, but underneath that gaiety was a dark, swift-flowing undercurrent of sadness. The last days were too busy to be sad. There were gowns to be ordered and fitted, invitations to be sent, and last minute rehearsals. The long-awaited night finally arrived. Walking back up the aisle we hugged our precious diplomas tighter and felt a sudden inexplicable urge to turn back, to recapture and live again that wonderful senior year. But we squared our shoulders, blinked back the rising tears, and unhesitatingly walked through the door of the future. 4 20 )3
