History of Senior Class
It was a cool day in September when the Senior Class of '41 first came into
Apollo High School. We were as green as grass, but no one could tell us any-
thing. At the first assembly we marched down the aisles as big as could be amid
applause and snickers. Ar the Freshman Party, as was traditional, we received our
initiation, after which no one sat down for a week. We were privileged then, so
much, that out of the whole high school the freshmen were the only ones who
received lolly pops from Mr. McCracken after his wedding. At our first high
school dance, boys and girls alike put on their Sunday "go to meetin' " clothes and
were all set to "cut the rug." To our great surprise all upper classmen had on
school clothes. It was very embarrassing to us, but we soon discovered that it all
went into the good old times.
We acted so big when we got the chance to applaud the new freshmen in
assembly. We had our "breaking in" and felt wiser in our second year of school.
At last we, too, had reached the stage where we could be called upperclassmen. It
was such a thrill to feel thatiwe were no longer mere children. This was proved
to us by the fact that we were permitted to attend the upperclassmen Hallowe'en
Our Sophomore year soon skipped by, and then we found ourselves occupy-
ing the assembly seats of those who were now'seniors. From the very first we began
planning for the Junior-Senior Prom. We held one reknown bake sale at which
twenty pzople out of eighty showed up with baked goods to sell. Our class was
very fortunate in having its dues paid up. Due to this, we did not have to earn
quite so much money. Finally the long anticipated day had arrived. The com-
mittee had the gym decorated in blue and gold. One never would have known
there was school on Thursday. Girls were fluttering around bothering themselves
with last minute preparations on their attire for the evening. The boys were busy
ordering corsages and shining cars. To us, that night, Buddy Lee's orchestra
sounded like Glenn Miller, and the blue and gold gym looked like the Rainbow
Room. No one realized that the time was so near for us to make our exit from
dear old Apollo High School. I
At last we reached the highest, point in our High School careers. We had,
before anyone knew it, become seniors. It was necessary that we begin immediately
to earn money to cover the Prom and Banquet in the spring. We had stands at
football games and held bake sales. Our biggest money proposition was the class
play, "American Passport," under the able direction of Miss Martha King. Per-
haps we had too many activities planned for ourselves, but we were ready, willing,
and able. The most interesting of the projects was the "Kiskitas." We did not
get started on this, our school day souvenir, until January. It won't take our last
few months together long to fly. Soon we will be out in the world on our own, and
these past years will be looked upon through misty eyes.
