Catalina: This is Catalina Verth
reporting for station WAVE. The
following program is a personal in-
terview of Professor Zeena Pierpont
of the University of Satellite 260.
Professor Pierpont is interrupting
her great archeological expedition in
the Dimple of the Universe. She
and her fellow archeologists have
unearthed the lost ruins of the
Dimple of the Universe, formerly
known as Columbia. Their main in-
terest renters around the old CHS
building which was erected in the
summer of 1956.
Professor Pierpont, would you tell
us some of the more valuable ob-
jects yon have discovered?
Professor: One of the most in-

Central High School building along
with some other interesting items.
I should like to read you some of
the highlights of that history.
"The class of 1956 entered CHS

find anything else significant of the
class of 1956 during the year of
Professor: Yes, we did. One of the
relics we found in the excavation was
a trophy won by the Algebra II math
team of 1953. The team members
were Amaryllis Hale and John Porter.
Members of the other two math
teams were Joyce Roland and Elden
A copy of The Lighthouse, the
play of the class of 1956, which was
produced in 1953, was also found in
the cornerstone. I think that this
play is one of the many indications
we have that that particular class

ever, there are many other indica-
A second portion of the history
was as follows: "We returned to
school again after summer vacation
in the fall of 1954. In our first class
meeting of the year we elected Bill
Lakey as President, Gary Wicks as
Vice-President, Alpha jo Scott as
