Do you remember the times we used to linger in the hall? Mr. Parker didn’t like it al all. Do you remember the fights ve used to have in study hall? When the teachers were away, all we did was play; So here we are telling all good-bye. To our friends and classmates and our sweetie pies, Four brilliant people, with so much to say, Now draw to a close; we’re on our way. SENIOR CLASS POEM We are small in number, but great in mind. A class like ours is hard to find. We are on our way to work and play And make you proud of us someday. Johnny wants to be a lawyer. Or another Tommy S-wyer. Leona, with her long dark curls, Is striving to beautify other girls. Dorothy, with her sophistication, Is working for an education. Clara Mae, who will study Vitamin D, Wants to cure you and me. We bid farewell to all of you And to our colors, White and Blue. With faces sad and hearts so true We, the Thirty-Niners, say Adieu. SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Four years ago nine ”know-it-all" freshmen proudly strutted into the High School Assembly. They were rather shy and timid at first but soonfelt as important as the president. The members of that class were as follows: Bill Hearing, John Henry Nye, Leona Wolverton, Clara Mae Cunha, Lorraine Huxoll, Awilda Bleakney, Marie Olson, Dorothy Davis, Dorothy Jane Reese, and later in the year Vashti Hoskins and John Corriea were added to the class. Dorothy Jane Reese (who left for Florence, Oregon), Dorothy Davis, and Lorraine Huxoll were with us for only one year. The following people left during the second year: Bill Hearing (who moved to Pendleton), Awilda Bleakney (who went to Boardman), and Vashti Hoskins (who transferred to Portland). That left only four pupils for the third, but there were two additions at the beginning of the fourth year. Dorothy Jane Reese returned to Echo from Portland, and Marie Olson returned from Mount Angel. Marie soon departed for Pendleton leaving only four brilliant members to graduate. SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY Yea verily, it is the year 1959. I am now visiting the famous city, Hollywood. I didn't want to miss any of Hollywood's "hot spots"; so I thought that I would visit the new Flat Foot Floojie Palace, which looked lively. The place was jammed with people wildly dancing to the music of the latest song, "The Model-T Blues". Suddenly the hilarious master of ceremonies appeared to announce the next number. He looked very familiar, and when I heard his inimitable laugh I knew that I could not be mistaken. It was John Corriea! Well, I just v ent up there while he was in the middle of his wise-cracking and made my presence known. He didn't recognize me at first, but when he finally did he was almost over-come. We then sat down and talked about old times in Echo High School until John nearly collapsed from laughing. He then told me that he had certainly come up in the world by starting out with a hamburger stand. He al60 invited me to drop over to the house sometime to meet the "Mrs. and the kids". I then ask-od how many "kids" ho had. John announced proudly that ho had ton, six boys and four girls. Just then a hush-seemed to come over ovoryone as tho lights dimmod, and a torch singer came out into tho colored spotlight and sang, "Honeysuckles and Cucumbers". Then John told me that this was Clara Mao Cunha, who was his special feature for the evening, Ho had her come over to our table. V e wore so glad to see each other again. Naturally I was very surprised to see Clara Mac here, and I asked her about her training to bo a nurse. She told mo that she found it too dull and wanted to have a good time. She is known a-round Hollywood as Clara Mao van Bilgownter. Clara Mao had to leave us then to do her own original bubble dance for which she is so famous. I John if ho know whore Lotew Y'olvorton was. He said that he and Leona had corresponded on and off for years. She is now-living in Fend-leton. Leon is president, owner, proprietor, straw boss, and general manager of the famous clothing stores, Inc., Co., Ltd., Mfg., (J. C. Two-bit Stores). Leona had also had her ups and downs. She used to bo the owner of a small hardware store and also worked as a forger in a blacksmith's shop (such as Lulu Belle). I decided to stop to seo Leona when I passed through Pendleton. Clara Mao and John said that they did not expect to see mo so far away from my home in Nolin; so I explained that I was on my way homo after my third trip to Reno. Although I was busy raising thoroughbred horses, I had done some extensive traveling since Nolin boasts of a fine airport. Perhaps I would see thorn on another trip. -D.Reese SENIOR CLASS WILL Wo, the Senior Class of '39, being of partially sound mind and body, appoint Mr. Parker and Mr. Steve Spike as the administrators of this, our last will and testament. Wo do give, bequeath, and bestow tho following: I, Dorothy Jane Reese, will my vocabulary to Dewey Pearson, in hopes he doesn't run out a}' words.

SENIOR CLASS SNEAK DAY On the fifth day of May four little Seniors, who were tired of school, decided to take thetdo nui d n-?9ob art coqori ni jnom o'I yswsG ioivaried ..-003 Y n II iw , notvevIoW snoaJ ,1 •v riO '’nod . a.oslo aiu.tyq aril od eaaXQ fcnarioioria ."sMji" , ;ntf.3 o.t soxov aliaog pt ovael ,a i n:oO ' flnrioL ,1 niorisjol 2 23 ti s u na0 x iiT 3 'ifqori locrfoe arid • laey Ixoa ana x?in%ib vm IXIw .saasH oa ’T. y s-oG fI »9-CcfiaiiJ-i- 0.1 Ion ’i‘i7 .'iSioraiW £y.i 91 ; a iiIx;'l oa'i- 5 ol a oMiuS OriJ avsel , p.rlnu'y oj t snaXO ,1 vsrfi I aril Inloiao aS .nael yj76cl 'to too avi | an' ni voivaried oo • vxn iliv.-werf0 .1 ’n :-d .3 Z 21 -v t- .• . u •’ Ol SO;CV 31 J n2V yj- ovuel ai • “0 ori ni ,2JCTflfc yaivad .sfiicw no i v£oW 2.109J , I '■ 1 ; naaXO cnerilioria .

They craved the excitement and glamour of a large city; so they headed for Walla Walla. They decided to be dignified young men and women for a change. Rising from their slumber at 6:30 o’clock: and accompanied by Mr. Parker, they motored to Walla Walla for breakfast. After devouring bacon and eggs they motored around the city and then visited the Whitmen Monument. There they took several snapshots. Whitman College was their next stop. Going through the College made them all wish that they could attend it the next year. It was then almost noon, and they were all wanting a juicy steak. Remembering their dignity they chose to have dinner at the Marcus Whitman Hotel, After enjoying a delicious dinner they went to the Walla Walla Perk. Two hours were spent there resting, watching the ducks and fish in the pond, and walking in the shade of the trees. The movie had attracted their attention, and an excellent show was seen. Hungry again’. Yes, they were. They decided to be economical by eating a hamburger a-piece. After window shopping and observing the lighted city in general they entered a skating rink. Being expert skaters, they fell down only occassionally. Mr, Parker was a skater among them. They would probably still be there if the rink had not closed at 10:30 o’clock. Five tired people returned to their home tov n. What a day'.Student dod Junior Clu9 Sopho Tn»» « Cla9» c n t n -3r vie JUNIOR CLASS NEWS President..... Vice-President Secretary.. .. Treasurer.....

The Juniors had a candy sale at the show, "Be yond Bengal". The proceeds were used to help sponsor the annual spring events. The candy sale was a success. The Juniors and Seniors entered the Pendleton Hotel, on April 24, and saw a very cleverly decorated Banquet Room. The theme of the affair was "Bugs", and everything was decorated accordingly. Huge spiders hung from the ceiling, and they were accompanied by many other bugs. All this caused one to have a rather buggy feeling. The thing of greatest importance was the menu. It did not consist of bugs although the place cards did. Estephana Correa acted as toastmaster and introduced the following people who gave toasts on the Bug which had been assigned: Miss Hess, Bug-a-boo; Clara Mae Cunha, Bug House; Mr. Loyd, Big Bug; Leona Wolverton, Doodle Bug; Miss Hindnjan, Lady Bug; John Corriea, Jitter Bug; Miss Calavan, Speed Bug; Dorothy Jane Reese, Fire Bug; Miss Schmidt, Love Bug; and Mr. Parker summed the whole thing up as he had Bug-ology. Miss Swendig gave a solo on her Trumpet and accompanied Mary Tefft, who sang "Love Bug 'ill Bite You". After our feast we attended the United Artist Theater and saw a very good show entitled "Three Smart Girls Grow Up". This brought a happy con-closion to the Junior-Senior Banquet. The Juniors greatly enjoyed doing their last bit for the Seniors. This was decorating the City Hall for commencement. The Senior Class colors of Blue and Gold were carried out in the decorating, and many pretty flowers made theplace look cheerful and welcome.

Class motto..Every little bit added to what you've got--makes just a little bit more. The Freshman Initiation Party was not a great success this year, for things became a bit rough and unmannerly after paddles and several vociferous lower classmen made their appearance. The costumes worn by the freshmen were quite different from those worn in preceding years. Extremes in styles didn't seem to bother them at all. It was suspected that the "ducking", that each member of the Sophomore Class was subjected to, did not originate in the undeveloped minds of the Freshmen. The water-melon feed might have helped the evening along, but the water-melons were green. A dynamic Freshman was reported to have been feeling a bit tender in certain spots after subsequent paddlings. She was a good sport though. Remember, boys and girls, it could have been worse. Frr Baccalaureate Services the church was beautifully decorated with iris and lilacs. The iris were arrayed as nearly as possible in accordance with the Senior Class colors, blue and gold. The Sophomores enjoyed decorating for the occassion.

Torn hoisery and worn out shoes were seen doing the Lambeth "'alk, Jitterbug, and Quadrille to the music of a radio, '"hen the group tired of dancing, they played Flying Dutchman and Musical Chair. Delicious sandwiches, punch, and cake were served at the close of an enjoyable evening. Members of the Freshman Class officiated as ushers and usherettes at the Baccalaureate Services. There were a great many people there.

Under the instruction of Miss Swendig the Echo Band has made great progress.

Janice Lyon plays the Symbols.- :They played "The Star Spanglo Banner” and ”Nogmal", a march, at the County Music Festival that was held at Umatilla this year. They also accompanied the Echo Girl's Chorus in the number "God Bless America". ' DRAMA (Those ’’kids” were driving him crazy. To think that he had married into a family of fits, baby twaddle, and barbarous brats I Poor Henry Turner (Frank Hiller) was having a terri le time with his stepchildren. Bob Martin (Orval Motheny), Gracy Martin (Maryann Bartholomew), and Marilee Martin (Mary Carol Thomson). On the other hand his new wife, Agn«s Martin (Janice Lyon), i"as exasperated at having maried into a family of kleptomaniacs and neurotics. Her stepchildren were Doris Turner (Betty Jean Eseelstyn) and Sarny Turner (Bill Able). The pranks those children ployed on their stepmother and stepfather were hilarious throughout. Their idea was to annoy Agnes and Henry; so they would not get married. Unknown to the children, they were already married. Miss Lydia Martin (Evelyn Charrier), a sister-in-law to Agnes, was sad and thoroughly dishusted with A„nes for ever waging to marry anyone else after her brother's death. Begonia (Leona Wolvcrton), the colored cook, and Nicademus (Manuel Correa), the colored handy man, who were very superstitious and afraid of ghosts, were scored stiff when Miss Lydia spoke to her brother's spirit. Those two characters offered many humorous lines. Toward the end of the play the children liked each other, liked their stepmother and stepfather, and did all in their power to get them to get married. Their aim had already been accomplished, and everyone was happy. This was the theme of "Ready Made Family", the humorous three-act fall play, which was presented at the City Hall by the Echo Student Body. For the first time in years three one-act plays were presented at the City Hall by the six upper grades. Each individual in the audience was permitted to cast a vote for the play he considered the best. "Howl of the Wolf" took first place and "S e was Only a Farmer's Daughter" placed second. "She Was Only a Farmer's Daughter" was givenby tho Seventh and Eighth Grades. A farmer's girl, Mary Carol Thomson, went to the wiched city for an education but was glad to get back to the farm -- away from all tho high life and glamour. She left behind her former lover, Bill Corriea, who turned out to be a villain, already having a wife and being engaged to a rich city girl, Marian Correa. The latter couple was to be married, but Marian's mother, Ruth Jordan, and her father, Kieth Middleton, appeared on th3 scene. Bill Corriea stole Marian's jewels and was discovered. Mother and father took daughtor home, the villain was put in jail, and Mary Carol married Orval and stayed on the farm cooking for the hotel manager, Dorothy Madison. "My Cousin From Sweden" v as presented by the Freshman and Sophomore Classes. Betty Jean Esselstyn took the part of the relative from Sweden. In America she overheard her cousins, Frances Madison, Marian Luciani, and Gloria Correa, saying that they expected her to be a typical "dumbell" with a dialect such as tho following: "I bane fine, tanks." Betty Jean decided to live up to their expectations by changing clothes with her maid (Marjorie Charrier), who was always "vishing she bme back in Shvedcn". The cousins were amazed at the apparent dumbness of their visiting cousin and dreaded to present her to their friends, Janice Lyon and Clara Correa. Later Betty Jean took off her disguise and won the will and friendship of the two guests. After the cousins discivered that she had been merely putting on an act of dumbness, everyone v as happy although the maid still "vished she bane back in Shvedcn". The Junior and Senior Classes presented the last play, "Howl of tho Wolf", which had typical backwood's scenery. The characters demonstrated the ways of living by their dialect, costumes, and portrayal of beliefs and superstitions. Leona Wolverton, who took the part of Granny Ran-nels, v as very feeble and smoked a corncob pipe. Lester Murray took the part of a stub orn father, Dave Rannols. He had no education and though it •• i • • unnecessary far his children to gain knowledge. "They 11 only be snsetiafiad with our ways" was hia belief. Dave’s son, 'Vaits, was Jahn Corriaa. Hia table manners were unbearable. Valley, Dave’s daughter, was Suzanne Nye. She was a ypung girl a frail sick girl. Those oharaoters ware informed of a happenings of the outside werld and made happy by a mountain nurse, Clara Mae Cunha. "That "’atkins Girl”, the last play of the 1938 -1939 school year, was presented by the Junior and Senior Classes, at the City Hall, on April 1. It was a comedy-drama. Far up in a lonely mountain cabin, with two lovable old miners, Dan (Lester Murray) and sourdough Pst (John Cerriea), lived the vivaceus mountain girl, "Tommy” (Suzanne Nye), whc had always suppased Dan ta be her own father. And why sho.uld she not? From her babyhaed he had always cared for her and loved her as much as any father could do. Jerry Hughes (Orval Metheny), a young mining engineer, and a friend of the old men, had Just discovered some promising ore in a deserted mine which Dan confides to him is one that had belonged to Tommy’s father, " illiam Huntington -- the father whom she had never known and of whom she had never heard. Just at that time there appeared unexpectedly, the aristocratic Mrs. Bulwer Stratton Smyth (Dorothy Jane Reese) searching for the mine owned by her brother, whase nam incidentally was "William Huntington. She was accompanied by her lawyer (Elden Smith), her daughter (Evelyn Charrier), and her daughter’s chum (Leona ’"olverton). After Mrs. Smythe overheard Jerry and Dan discussing her ownership of the mine and Tommy’s relationship to herself, she suddenly lost her haughty demeanor and overwhelmed Tommy with hypocritical kindness offering to take her back to Boston as her guest. Tommy consented, at first, thinking Dan would acr company her; Later when Jerry actually found real gold in Tommy’s mine, the snobbish Mrs. Smythe decided tfJ f' S , §miassort her guardian-ship over Tommy and separate her from all her former tie3. Loyal, true-hearted Tommy learned the true situation and balked at it all. "She's of age,” said Dan: so she refused to leave "Daddy" and remained with him and Jerry.

Vice-president........ Secretary and treasurer Song leader............ Dorothy Jane Reese .......Suzanne Nye ..Estephana Correa ........Mary Tefft Many successful candy salos v.'ere given throughout the year. The most outstanding was a taffy pull at the hone of Suzanne Nye. It was great fun pulling the rainbow colored taffy and selling it the next noon. The fragrance of fresh baked cakes (still warm from the oven), cookies, and other foods attracted a large number of people to the Cash Grocery, where the girls were holding their food sale. Approximately six dollars was made. The girls sold tuberculosis pins for the Red Cross. They were quite efficient saleswomen. Who's the lucky winner? Everyone was nervously sitting or. the edge of his seat after the Uma-tilla-Echo Basketball Game, hoping to receive the basket of groceries given away by the Girl's League. The basket contained ten dollars worth of choice foods such as the following: ham, nuts, sweet potatoes, cranberries, and many other things. The girls cooperated very well in selling chances at three for twonty-five cents, or ton cents for one. More than twenty dollars was the gross profit. On the morning of November the fifth, Estephana Correa, Dorothy Jane Reese, Gloria Correa, and Suzanne Nye motored to Milton-Freewater to attend the Girl's League Conference held at Mac-Hi. The school was very beautiful, spreading out over a whole block. All kinds of cars were parked outside including a Model-T Ford in which some of the presidents had come. When they entered the building, several pretty girls, with wonderful personalities, greeted them and presented themwith a paper key to pin on their dresses. The keys had printed on them the words, "The Key to Practical Womanhood". They alse handed them a very attractive program. Registration was from 9:30 to 10:30 o'clock. Every school had a different table where they registered. From 10:00 to 10:20 a pep assembly was held. At 10:00 the principal, Mr. James Burgess, gave "The Key to the Conference". His message was "Be Your True Self". Next, everyone chose a discussion room from their program. It offered them six different "goals" to choose from. The Echo Girls chose the subject of "Popularity", and the room was filled with interesting girls, Mrs. Leigh Price was the speaker, and she was really wonderful. All the girls learned some fine points. At 11:15 a bell rang dismissing the rooms. They went from there to departmental panels. The Echo Girls decided on the subject of "Finance". Pendleton High School led and Pilot Roek, Athena, and Mac Hi were helpers. This discussion was very informal, and everyone in the room gave suggestions. At 11:45 they were dismissed to rest and get acquainted. At 12:30 lunch was served at the City Hall. The day was thoroughly enjoyed, and the Echo Girl's League hopes that it will be possible to repay the courtesy and helpful suggestions. Beautiful palms and other scenery of the Hawaiian Islands was seen on entering the City Hall, on April 29, at the Girl's League Formal. Girls in grass skirts served punch and sandwiches to the dancers. Davenports were provided for those who tired easily of dancing. A dressing room was cleverly decorated for the hanging of the wraps. There were perhaps fifty couples on the floor at once. The orchestra played Hawaiian election? in order to further carry out the theme. Invitation? and programs resembled real bark and were very attractive. . The girls invited all of tfcv boys ;a High PQhool and the alumni for five years back. The girl? o©ap P £ d and carried tba fof mal we? in a big way. .PARTIES There i» nothing gayer than the sound of sleigh bells. To the students this meant the coming of Santa and the Christmas Party in the Assembly Room. Everyone was in high spirits because the coming of Santa brings gifts and candy. A program consisting of the following numbers was given: The members of the German Class (Suzanne Nye, Dorothy Jane Reese, and Margaret Krause) "Silent Night" h..o "Hark the Herald An ,ei Sxn s" in German. A muuo.ous selection, "Kuo;; " I "7aat for ChrioU-s", was given by Leona ’"olverton. "Alexander ’ s Ragtime Band" v;as sung by Mary Tefft, and she also gave a tap dance. "Needles and Pins" was a version of a tired husband given by Evelyn Charrier. The Girl’s Chorus sang "Bells of St. Mary" and "Neapolitan Nights." In conclusion the Junior and Senior Classes presented the other four grades with a surprise humorous skit. Santa Claus, Johnny Corriea, came with his candy and nuts and distributed gifts. ,,Tith hands and stomachs full all exchanged "Merry Christmas Greetings" and returned home for a two weeks period of vacation. The students decided to be "youngsters" again and enjoy a Valentine Party. A short program was given. The Girl’s chorous sang "’Then I grow Too Old to Dream", and everyone joined in on the second chorus. Evelyn Charrier gave a reading, "Railroad Crossing". "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby" was sung by Mary Tefft. Two accordion selections, "Alexander’s Ragtime Band" and "’Valtz You Saved for Me", were played by Leona "Volverton. A very interesting history of the "Valentine" was read by Marian Luciani. Everyone rushed over to the "soup kitchen" for refreshments of white cake, red jello, and oocoa.CARNIVAL Why all the noiso and laughter in the City Hall, on October 1? A large crowd was assembling, and the fun continued. Toy horns, daughter, and booth callers were all hollering at the same time. There was a bingo table, fish pond, baseball throw, darts game, and many other interesting attractions. The older people went back to their childhood days and threw confette and streamers along with the young people. Many old hunters went baefc to their younger days in the shooting gallery. There were some very good marksmen. In the opposite corner was a baseball throw, and many people tested themselves to see what a "straight shot" they were. In the center of the floor was the biggest attraction. That was the bingo table. Everyone from ten to fifty years old was playing it. The Echo Carnival was one of the biggest entertainments of the year. The net profit was outstanding, and all of the students will remember it in years to come.NICKNAME AND PASTIME John Corrioa.......Yohon.......Sitting in the hall.
