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 Deppen, treasurer. 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 advisor. 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. Twenty-One
