This year's sophomores proved that the
old saying, "You can tell a sophomore, but
vou can't tell him much," does not always
hold true. This year we are very proud of
our splendid showing on the honor roll.
At the beginning of the first semester,
the following officers were elected:
Cleo Kopp, presidentg Helen Phelps, vice
presidentg Bob Seeds, secretary-treasurerg
Cecile Ames, Ernest Linden, Student Coun-
The sophomore class did its part in help-
ing to make the Carnival another big suc
cess. Carol Velde and Ernest Linden were
the candidates for Queen and King.
The All-School Christmas party was
sponsored by our class. The first part of
the evening was spent in playing games
and dancing. The highlight of the party
was the arrival of none other than Santa
to tell us of his "Second Marriage." Be-
lieve it or not, he also read us some letters
that he had received from various students
and teachers, telling him what they want-
ed for Christmas. Last but not least, came
the distribution of the gifts, candies and
fruits. Even high school students think
Christmas is incomplete without a Santa
The sophomore boys made a fine show-
ing in athletics this year. The reserve bas-
ketball team was made up almost entire-
ly of our sophomore boys. This included
the following: Dan McKean, Jack Hannon,
Dick Herder, Bob Perkins, and Billy Bar-
ton. The former boys were on the football
team, and also, Tom Mowbray, Eddie Mow-
bray, Leland Wright, and Hyle Taylor. Al-
though we had no outstanding athletes this
year, we expect them to really "go to
town" in the next two years.
In fact this holds true for the entire
class. Keep your eye on this class for
scholarship, athletics and activities.
