B. F. A. Mercury
: 1-mmm nunmnmnmumnnnnnn
,By Shirley Thompson and Louis Chabot
Today in our fast moving world it would
seem rather trite to just write a-history of the
Class of 1951. Instead, in keeping with our
times, we would like to have you relax and en-
joy the panorama of highlights of our class over
the television set.
The setting is B. F. A., the time, September,
1947, the actors, the brand new, quite bewilder-
ed, ever so slightly green, members of the pres-
ent class of '51.
Our first official business was the election of
class officers. Walking across the screen are
Guy johnson, president, Clifford Sargent, vice-
president, Ted Arel, secretary, and Louis Chabot
A colorful picture is presented of our Fresh-
man Beception, a yearly rite, at which the sopho-
mores are the hosts. Youill note the lack of up-
Now here is a lone figure with a baseball.
Thatis right, that freshman year we -had but one
representative in the field of sports-eTed Arel,
who made the Varsity squad. The girls, not to
be outdone, gave us Ieanette Belair and Evelyn
Chevalier as cheerleaders.
Our scene changes quickly to B. F. A. audi-
torium. Here we have the cast of the freshman
play, "Life O, The Partyv, and their director,
Miss Hortense Beeman: Gary McEwen, Gloria
Greene, Ianice Church, Betty" Towle, Robert
Smart, Gloria Frazier, joan jean, Evelyn Cheva-
lier, Guy johnson, Fred Dworshak, Boland Bar-
low and Lawrence Raymond. We are 'sad-we
lost to the sophomores.
Quickly moving to September, 1948, the
group you see is no longer the bewildered class
it was a year agol Here it has a bit more con-
fidence, ready to start its sophomore year,
Taking a bow are the new class officers: Guy
johnson, president, Louis Chabot, vice-presi-
dent, Ted Arel, secretary, and Armand Mossey,
For our sports review, we have Ted Arel and
Cliff Sargent in baseball and Dorothy Aldrich in
basketball. Betty Towle, Ieanette Belair, and
Evelyn Chevalier are the cheerleaders.
The year passes quickly and we find ourselves
once more on the stage in the Junior Iamboree
with our director, Miss Beeman, in "Gratitude,'.
Our actors are Betty Towle, Carol Asprey, Glo1'ia
Greene, Polly Sheltra, and Fred Dworshak. We
still look sad-the Freshmen won the plaque.
Hereis a close-up of Fred Dworshak, who won
first prize in a Safety Campaign Contest on his
essay, "How Can We Make Our Highways Safer
for Our Citizensiw
We find Mary Hungerford, Barbara Casa-
vant, Virginia Dacey, Nita Hill, and Faith Wil-
son sitting around a large table. If you look
carefully you will see that they are helping to
get the Mercury ready for press.
Another September. 1949 is the year. Now
you can see our same group entering B. F. A. as
upper classmen. The shyness is nearly gone,
there is more certainty in everything we do, and
we feel this is the year that belongs to us.
We wasted no time in electing Louis Chabot,
president, Tiny Rich, vice-president, Janice
Church, secretary, and Fred Dworshak custo-
dian of our funds, to guide us through our junior
Several members of our class were elected to
the Student Council. They were Mary Hunger-
ford, vice-president, Nita Hill, secretary, Pauline
Sheltra, Iames Abell, Terry Leduc and Louis
Chabot, home room representatives.
