herevt ith record for all posterity
The class of 49 can lay no claims to uniqueness during the years p ecedmg high school but for that matter neither can most
clas es The high school years are what bring out the individuality in a class and set it apart from all of its predecessors But in
Ceptember 1943 this class entered the Freshman year of its career One section vtas encamped in Room 10 under the superxision
of Mr I-Iardendorf, while the remainder skipped off to Study Hall with Miss Diamant
In the Cophomore year the class was merged into one group under Miss Wilkinson That year its mayor activity centered
around the Queen of Hearts dance a pretty Valentine affair t which Norma Katcher was crowned queen for the ex emng

The social life of the Forty mners was practically non existent up to their Senior year But as Seniors they held a fine
Christmas banquet at Dopps Inn Presents were exchanged and Mr Loucks was both surprised and dismayed when the Four
Roses box he received contained only a quart of milk This anti climax was recorded on film by Flash Yatarola for all to see
