" "- We journeyed to Susquehanna University to see another Shakespearean play on November 13-THE TAMING OF THE SHREW, presented by the Susquehanna, Players. November 22 we had a Thanksgiving Assembly with each class contributing something to make it a well rounded program. Thanksgiving vacation was the 23rd and 24th of November. We elected the Hall of Fame of the Senior Class on December 4 and on thc 5th and 6th the pictures for "The Brook" were taken. The morning of December 22 the final intra-mural volley ball games fboys and girls'J were held. The boys' ping pong tournament was also played off. Then all the students gathered in the auditorium for the gift exchange and assembly. At 12:00 we were dismissed for Christmas vacation. Our first activity in 1951 was on January 5, when We went to Lewistown to have our graduation pictures taken. We received the proofs a week later and the pictures the middle of March. The school went to the Farm Show on the 10th of January. The next day we took our first-semester examinations. During the first semester we had a course that was very helpful to us seniors. It was our "Family Relations" class. A professor from State College gave us a test on "Social Attitudes" on Janu- ary 22. We also had to write essays on the subject, "Myself, Eight Years From Now." We wonder how our present hopes will compare with our lives eight years hence. Mr. Fetterolf, who has duplicates of these essays, will probably remind us. The Home and School Club of Beavertown had a square dan-ce for the junior- senior high students on January 24. They had an orchestra and several people to in- struct us since this was the first dance of this kind at Beaver. Seldom, if ever, have the students at Beaver had the opportunity to ice skate on the athletic field. But we were luoky on Friday, February 2, when we were able to ice skate during school hours. During January and February the staff of the yearbook worked very hard to lmake it better and even more interesting than before. This was a big task and again we stuck together as a class and did our best. Friday, February 23, in a special assembly, we were able to see a ventriloquist perform, which was indeed entertaining. The Student Council sponsored several juke box dances during March and April so that the students -could get in practice for the Prom. The Forensics were held at Beaver on ,March 9 and Beaver won six events- alto solo, clarinet solo, saxophone solo, girls' trio, girls' glee club, and mixed chorus. During the year we had two student teachers in the Home Economics De- partment. This experience was not only helpful to the student teachers but also to the student body. The last few weeks of school were busy ones. With the annual Junior-Senior Prom on May 5, Varsity Club Banquet sponsored by the Student Council, Alumni Banquet, final examinations, our Farewell Assembly on our last day of school, May 15, and the usual activity concerned with getting ready for graduation. Baccaleaureate Services were held May 20 and Tuesday, May 22, the twenty- seven lmembers of the class of 1951 graduated from the school in which we spent many happy days. During the year we lost one member, Norma June Bailey. We left for our trip to Washington D. C. on the morning of May 23, and re- turned late the 26th after having spent four days of sightseeing in the capital city of our nation. Novw we are part of the Alumni of Beaver Vocational High School, and we are very proud of it, but we shall never forget the happy days that we spent at our Alma Mater. For many of us it was the end of our formal education, but for some, it was just a stepping stone to a higher learning. During our four years we saw much improvement at Beaver, in that the entire school program became more diversified. The fine training we received in high school will most assuredly help us take our rightful place in society. We, the seniors of '51, owe mu-ch to our Alma Mater, may we ever remain faithful to her.
