CLASS OF '54 Well, Lord Trojan of Troy, to begin your visit to East Lansing from the past, you are going to have the chance now to relive the story ofone of the great- est classes in E.L.H.S.'s history, the Class of '54. lt was six, long, eventful years ago that this ener- getic group of Trojans signed the register at E.L.H.S. The progress that they have made is quite evident today. They began their first year under the leadership of Charles McCaffree, Fred Wagner, Nancy McDonald, and .Tim Faust. The first year faded into the next, and they found themselves in the eighth grade working under the guidance of Charles McCaffree once again, along with Bob Powell, Marcia Grimes, and Mari- lou Mausteller. Junior High was soon just a memory, and there was something much bigger to look forward to. The class of '54 met their first social obligations in Sen- ior High by giving their Freshman dance, "Bums De- light," and a square dancing Christmas party. ln the field of school government, Joe Sherman and Steve Lamphear represented their class in Student Council, and the officers who so ably led the class through this yearlwere Bob Perry, Bob Powell, Janice Noble, and Marilou Mausteller. The old earth took another twirl and they were back again, this time as a Sophomore Class. The ideals of this class were expressed to the Student Council by Marilou Mausteller and Steve Lamphear. They were not to be outdone in the field of sports, Phil Wood and Steve Lamphear were on the varsity football team, while Charles McCaffree reported 'to the varsity basketball squad, and Bob Perry was a second year varsity man in golf. The highlights of the year from the social point ofviewwere the "Holly Hop" and the annual Soph Prom, "Sous l'eau,"French for under water, Guiding the class were JoeSherman, Janice VanDerJagt, Kathryn Hildebrand, and John Winburne, Fall came around again and they returned, this year as Juniors. To start the year off, Steve Lamp- hear served as vice-president on the Student Coun- cil with Donna Reuling, Brian Elmer, Tom Kerrey, and Phil Wood representing the class. The fairer sex took over the leadership of the class this year with Marilou Mausteller as Madam President. Working along with her were Bob Powell, Kathryn Hildebrand, and Bill Roy, The Junior boys were found partici- pating enthusiastically, not only in football a.nd bas- ketball, but also in tennis, track, golf, wrestling, and baseball. The social light shone on the attractivel- Hop, "On The Town," on February 21, and on April 9 and 10, the curtain rose on the Junior play, "Our Miss Brooks," the first successful two night comedy. Climaxing the prosperous year was the annua1Junior- Senior Banquet on J une 4. Once again summer faded into autumn, and old E.L.H.S. opened her doors to welcome the Class of '54 back again. They entered proudly, bearing the long-envied title of Seniors. The quartet of officers chosen to lead them through their final year were Don Young, Bud Young, Janice VanDerJagt, and Kathryn Hildebrand. Standing by with a helping hand and good advice were Miss Stophlet and Mr. Pulley, the class advisors. Steve Lamphear took over the leadership of Student Council, assisted by Barbara Kohl and Brian Elmer, plus an underclassman.Representing theclass were Don Young, Donna Reuling, Marilou Mausteller, Lew Kerans, Dave Dethmers, and Brian Elmer. The Senior boys made a fine showing in the sports world all year. The highlight of the football season was the Homecoming Dance. Found reigning over the gala event were Queen Janice Noble and King Steve Lamp- hear. On November 13 and 14 the Class of '54 pre- sented the highly successful Senior Play, "Gramercy Ghost," under the direction of Mr. Richard. Themain goal of this class was to earn money and a few of their projects were, the magazine drive, paper drive, rum- mage sale, and the Sock Hop, At last their goal was reached and the Senior Trip was underway. The three day cruise on the Great Lakes with stops at Chicago and Mackinac Island was well worth allthehard work. The last big social affair was the Senior Prom on May 23. White dinner jackets, swirling formals, and colorful flowers set the stage for the most wonder- ful dance of the year. Bringing their high school careers to a close were the Junior-Senior Banquet, Baccalaureate, and finally, Commencement. Now, Lord Trojan, don't you agree, after hear- ing their history, that the Class of '54 has comea long way since their first year at East Lansing High School? With a twinge of regret they are leaving these hallowed halls now, yet they will never forget the six happy years spent here. As the Class of '54 goes out into the world as young men and women, they will look back on their high school days at East Lansing with fond memories and afeeling of gratitude for the part it played in their lives.
