Early in the year the class voted to have Dr. J. R. Mitchell, from Purdue University, as guest speaker for our commencement. The seniors were invited to the Junior Prom on May 21. 1954 at the Riviera Club. Baccalaureate services were held May 23, and last but most certainly not least, the members of the Class of '54 received their diplomas on May 28, 1954, thus complet- ing four years of work, learning, and fun. When this senior class begins to fade in the minds of the students and the faculty, as all classes do, we would like to leave behind us this thought: "En- joy yourself. it's later than you think." FIRST GRADE, SECTION I, 1942- '43 FIRST GRADE, SECTION II, 1942- '43

class hlS130l2 In September of 1950, fifty-two green "freshies" invaded Beech Grove High School, All fifty-two were eager to start off on the right foot and to impress everyone that this was a class not to be forgotten, The freshman basketball team showed signs of fine playing ability for future winning games. Our cheerleaders were Anna Vandergrift, Joan Herold, and Tiny McFeely. Fdr the first time, we participated in the inter-class tourney. Both teams lost but were not resigned to defeat. Dur- ing that year we lost Gwen Matthewson, Dale Royalty, William Sandley, Gerald Spall, and Janet Jennings, We welcomed Leroy Adams, Michael Bettisch, Donald Black, William Clark, Robert Goldey, Janet Jennings, Thomasine McFee1y, Michael Morrison, Janice Murdock, Roger Mc- Clanahan, Harry Russell, and Helen Webber, who joined our class at the very first of the year. We returned to school in the fall as sophomores with fifty-five members. We lost James Beikman, Mike Bettisch, Joan Herold, Gwen Matthewson, Phyllis Pedigo, and Sharon Wellons during the year, Martha Hawkins,John Konkle, Robert Bellows, and Robert Russell joined the class early in the year but withdrew later that same year. William Alexander, George Hinshaw, Larry Johannes, Robert Lee, Janet Cotton, and Doris Jean Davis joined our class during the year. The boys lost to Franklin Township in the County Reserve Tourney by one point in the first game, but the team made a good showing of itself. In the inter-class tourney that year, the boys were de- feated, but the girls won to bring the first real honor to the Class of '54, Everyone was looking forward to our junior year because it promised to be our best, with class officers to be elected, magazines to be sold, inter-class tourney to be sponsored, a play to be- given, rings to be ordered, and a prom to be planned. As we began to settle down to the routine of school, we looked around and discovered some familiar faces were missing and some new ones had taken their places. Leroy Adams, Janet Cotton, Doris Jean Davis, Barbara Hennis, and Delores Herzog had failed to return for various reasons. Those new to get acquainted with included Linda Cook, George Combs, Janice Cammack, Walker Sandlin, Norman Thompson, and Carole Webster. We elected as officers: Mike Morrison, Presidentg Bill Clark, Vice President, Anna Vandergrift, Secretaryg Harry Russell, Treasurer, and Donna Foust, Sergeant-at-Arms. Our sponsors were Mrs. Laing and Miss Guill. The inter-class tourney was sponsored by us with the help of Mr. Nickels. The girls were defending their hard earned crowns and the boys had still to experience the glory of being Inter- Class Champs. The girls lost to the sophomores in the final game but the boys came through to victory. We also sold magazines and gave a play to raise enough money to be the hosts of one of the nicest proms a junior class at Beech Grove has ever sponsored. The Prom was held in the Atherton Center at Butler University. This was the first time Beech Grove had ever had a Prom there, but we all hope it wasn't the last time. The year was climaxed with the receiving of the long-awaited class rings. In the fall of '53 forty-five self-confident seniors returned to "ye ole halls" to write the final page of four memorable years. We missed Richard Boles, Ronald Harmon, Marlene Richard- son, Robert Goldey, Robert Lee, and Linda Cook and welcomed Gene Caudle and Elaine Pitts. The officers were: Mike Malone, President: Mike Morrison, Vice Presidentg Kathleen Brown, Secretaryg and Sylvia Prather, Treasurer. Our sponsors were Miss Crabb and Miss Ragsdale. We chose white and crimson as our class colors.
