We journeyed to Susquehanna University to see another Shakespearean play
on November 13-THE TAMING OF THE SHREW, presented by the Susquehanna,
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
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.

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.
