We will never forget our first day of school Most of our parents had to take us to
school because we were so bashful and feared our new venture in life Gradually we be-
came us ed to the idea of being with our new friends and we grew to like school During the
next few years our skills in reading and writing improved, 'we thought, but sometimes our
teachers questioned this Also we began to learn that 2 -l- 2 4, and as the years passe
by our course of study became extended and we finally had to learn how to study and to do a
liked 't because
l1ttle night work We "gr1ped' about it of course, but at the same t1me we 1

really got acquainted, d1dn't we? ? We will never forget our initiation day when those wicked
Sophomores smeared our faces with lipstick We had fun eating hot peppers and onions,
drinkmg vanilla and crawling on our knees Remember when we would talk too much and
Mr Hrutkay would make us write, "S11ence is a Golden Virtue, " 500 times? Those were
the good old days Our "Freshmen Frol1c" was held on Friday, the 13th and "boy" were

VKE're sure that Mr Roche and Mrs Aebi will never forget our class with fondness

Father Time to bring us together Everyone remembers the incident about paper and
ke holes' We were good kids at heart though Christmas brought our Enchanted
Forest" and mistletoe in the air vent As we graduated 1nto the Jusnior Class, we passed
our "lipstick rights" to the new Sophomores
August Z9 1956 and we were Juniors! I We'll always remeniber the forlorn express
ions on Mr C Hrutkay's and Mr Vernall1s's faces They had the task, as our home
room teachers, to reform us However, nearly half our class, somehow managed to
maintain a "C" Ln conduct throughout the entire year They were proud o us W en we
arrived and after some "battle" we got the ones we wanted While sweating over
' finals" we kept hoping for a better more rewarding Senior Year! I !
At last the big day arrived and we became Seniors Qto the dismay of Misses
Nelson and Kilonskyj Doug, Jerry, Joan and Janie were elected class officers We
began the year right by selling magazines with Roundy leading the para e
orderin name cards we began our play, 'Curtain Going Up ' Since we did our best
work in our undergrad days with little rehearsal, we repeated this practice in our
senior year Many thanks to Mr Ernler for doing such a wonderful Job in nnking t a
success We will never forget that surprise "love scene" by Doug and Phyllis Dec
ernber saw pose after pose for our senior pictures Days seemed to :Ely an e
