book the remamder bemg devoted almost en
trrely to lrterary efforts of class members and
a elass1f1ed l1st of all former graduates of
Beaver H1gh School
As the years progressed we found that
more and more space was devoted to prctures
of and about school lrfe The Senror Class
was g1ven the posrtron of honor and the oth
er classes glven a proportlonate drsplay
Gradually tt unfolded as a real attempt to
portray a cross sectron of l1'e IH the hxgh
In 1923 two rnnovatrons xx ere attempted
A new vest pocket edrtron was planned
Small and compact It measured only 6 by
7V The Senxors were plctured mdrvldually
formally and rnformally Other cuts and
copy had to of necessxty be cut m srze and
amount Thls small PdflOI1 lasted only 1
short whlle before succeedmq classes returned
to the conventronal slze More lmportant
hom ever vxas the adoption of the t1tle vxhrch

could have been more apropos than to go
back 1nto the hrstory of Beaver xtself and
fmd that the tovxn der1ved rts name from the
l1ttle Indran vrllage located on thrs plateau
