After much campaigning the class elected Dick Clymer as its president. Helen Jones was chosen vice-president while Cynthia Baker and Jim Schmidt served as secre- tary and treasurer, respectively. Senior Color Day, full of fun, was followed by the Mother ' s Tea, Class Day, the senior play, and that all-important Junior-Senior Reception. Then came baccalaureate and graduation, and so ended our four years at Broad Ripple. The happy times, the sad moments, the successes and failures — these, our memories of Ripple, we will cherish always. Senior Sponsors (L. to R.) : Mr. Mahin, Miss Randall, Miss King, Mr. Wann 16
