Points, dollars pile up via sales of cokes, cards, candy, etc
Money, money, money-that's what the
Senior Class of i959 sought and got for their
Senior trip and gift to Bentley. Concession
stands during the football and basketball
seasons were run feverently by Seniors busily
selling cokes, potato chips, and candy to hun-
gry spectators. Early winter saw citizens of
Livonia and surrounding communities greeting
the Seniors who were then selling "boxes
upon boxes" of candy and Christmas cards.
Further to prevent bankruptcy in the treasury,
funds were derived from booster buttons,
sweat shirts, auto stickers, and book covers.

Place," which embroiled an entire family in ROMANCE
and "Xingu," in which members of a women's club tried
to impress a famous author but discovered they didn't

Wisniewski directed this theatrical trio.
One year more mature, the Seniors tackled the full-
length presentation of "The Remarkable Incident of
Carson Corners," under the direction of Mr. John
Erickson. In this play, Carson Corners high school stu-
dents, angered by the accidental death of one of
their classmates, impressed their parents with the need
for each member of the community to accept either
responsibility or the blame for accidents which resulted
from his own negligence.
