Reigning Beauties • • • Left to Right: Carol Matthews, Shirley Ferguson, Marie Harter, Patty Boone, Betty Lou Vinyard, Myra Wills, Tavie Barnes Maid of Honor; Dorothy Eller, May Queen; Phyllis Batten, Gayle Snider, Faye Garst, Lucy Bette Clem, Glenda Fowler, Thed Draper. This year the Sodalitas Latina presented its tenth May Queen. Since May Day originated with the Romans celebrating festivals in honor of Maia and Flora, it was fitting that th e Latin Club should give the first May Day. At the first five celebrations the Queens were crowned by three principals, the superintendent of schools, and the mayor of Salem. In 1950 the father of the Queen crowned her. We have followed that custom since that time. The first four were merely called ‘ ‘The May Day Dance. ” The girls wore evening dresses that were all different. There was dissatisfaction when we had them all made alike! At first only Latin Club members were in the court, but when it became such a big event we opened it to the whole school. We became more creative, started using themes and in 1950 made a ceiling for the gym.
