August 29, 1949, and we were ready to start the second-half of our high
school career and we were also upperclassmen. All of our members returned and
there were two changes in the faculty. Mr. Donald Houck for Miss Herr and Mrs.
Charles returned again in the place of Mrs. Benner.
Mr. Howell was our class advisor and as officers we elected Carl Young, pres-
identg Phyllis Peters, vice-president, Anna Louise Dreese, secretary, and Shirley
At the Beaver Fair, September 22, 23, 24, we had a ball and a dart stand
with which we did well financially. We also displayed a booth on "Youth of Amer-
ica" and won second prize.
At the beginning of the term we decided to get the "Beaver Broadcaster"
printed but after one issue we changed our minds and printed it ourselves for the
remainder of the term. We worked very hard each month to make each issue as
interesting as possible.
September 27 the student body journeyed to Williamsport to see a Police
Rodeo which was very entertaining.
After waiting patiently for several weeks, we received our rings and pins
on December 8, 1949. That was a wonderful day!
Another wonderful day was January 17, 1950-the night our varsity basket-
ball team defeated McClure. Remember? We had the next day off to celebrate.
That night our class and the seniors went to Susquehanna University to see
Shakespeare's MACBETH, presented by the Susquehanna Players.
Through fine co-operation we were able to have an eating stand at each home
basketball game and we also had several successful bake sales, one at Beaver Springs
on February 11, one at Beavertown on March 18, and another at Beaver Springs
on April 29. All of these projects increased the balance of our treasury considerably.
This year Beaver was host to the County Chorus on April 21.
April 28 was "Booster Day" for the Varsity Club and in the evening a juke-
box dance was held.
May 11 the second edition of "The Brook" came out and again everybody
was busy getting their books autographed before the seniors would leave.
The seniors had their Farewell Assembly May 12, and our final tribute to
them was a Farewell Picnic at the Tall Timbers. We went on two tractors and wagons
and everyone had a splendid time.
Our Junior-Senior Prom was a success after much planning and work. It was
held in the gym on May 12. The theme of the Prom was "Cinderel1a."
Baccalaureate Services for the class of '50 were held May 20 and Commence-
ment May 22.
Now all our upperclassmen had graduated and we would be next to go. Dur-
ing the year we lost only one member, Park Aumiller, who left the icofmmunity.
When we returned to Beaver on August 28, 1950, to begin our last year in
high school there were twenty-eight in our class. Shirley Deppen didn't return, but
Jim Folk joined us.
There were no changes in the faculty and Mr. Howell was again our class
Our class officers were: Dueressa Bailey, presidentg John Hassinger, vice-
presidentg Anna Louise Dreese, secretaryg and Amber Rae Hassinger, treasurer.
At the Beaver Fair, September 20 to 23, we sponsored an eating stand which
was an outstanding success. The members of the class really co-operated in this pro-
ject and through co-operation, made it a success. We also had a booth on which we
won first prize. It had to do with Democracy and Communism.
During Pennsylvania Week in October, we visited several of the industries
in Beavertown and Beaver Springs. This helped us to realize the important part our
industries play in the community.
October 27 our class sponsored a Halloween party for the whole school, and
everybody present had an enjoyable evening of fun and recreation.
November 1 we had the tryouts for our class play and from then until the day
we presented it, we worked and practiced to make it a success. We presented MAKE
MINE MONEY at 8:00 p. m. on December 2. We also gave a matinee on December 1,
and we received many compliments on this, another class lproject.
