Homecoming Queen to the Ball.
Queen Carolyn and her escort smile radi-
antly upon their subiects.
Homecoming is a traditional event at Bentley, as it is at every
other high school. Chilly winds could not erase the warm smiles
from the faces of candidates for Homecoming Queen. Each
girl was chosen by her fellow classmates according to per-
sonality and popularity. Two girls from each class comprised
the court and from the court one girl, senior Carolyn
VanKeuren, was elected by the entire student body to reign
as queen at the Homecoming festivities. The Seniors were
proud that one of their candidates became queen.

Make-up is part ot the fun of giving plays. Jim Paul labovel was
gleefully smeared with cold cream by Sandy Gaston, as Phyllis
Gray, Nancy Trapp and Gail Lindsay looked on before the Junior
play. Meredith Keras lrightl prepared actress Karen Smith for her
role in "Carson Corners."
Dramatic experiences of the class of '59 ranged from
a series of one-act plays presented as Juniors to the
full-fledged three-act play of this year.
Included in the trilogy were "Apollo of Bellac" lthe
title referring to a sculptured bust of Apollol, in which
a young girl held spellbound the male employees of
an office and nearly broke up the marriage of "the
Boss," Booth Tarkington's famous farce, "The Trysting
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

know what they were talking about. Mrs. Pamela
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.
