We have twenty-six boys and girls in our room
this year. We have read the basic Pre-Primers,
Primer and First Reader, several supplementary
readers, as well as library books. We have also
completed our workbooks in Reading, Numbers, and
During January we collected Eskimo stories and
pictures and made a miniature Eskimo village.
We visited the Post Office, Library, Fire Hall,
and a play house at the home of Sandra Johnston.
Two of the activities that we have planned together and in which all took part were a "Pet and Puppet
Show." Each morning for one week each boy and girl had an opportunity to twirl a baton, do acrobatics,
sing, read a story, or do anything of his own choice. We also were happy that Angela Gentry from our room
appeared on television on Station WIN-T, Waterloo.
Both First Grades had a picnic lunch and games at the park at the closing of the school year.

Most of us know our letters - the consonant sounds and the vowels.
We have learned to count objects and write our numbers to lO0.
We have worked combinations and learned the meaning of number facts
up to and including the number ten.
Our trips to the library and the Post Office were a lot of fun. We
learned how to get books to read from the library. At the Post Office we
learned how the mail gets to and from the Post Office and how it is sorted.
We made a farm and wrote a story about it.
Plans were made to give o little play for some of the other grades.
Our picnic was held the lost week of school.

ECO ll Gllilllll
We had twenty-eight pupils in our room this year
We completed our required workbooks and textbooks,
besides several supplementary readers. Every pupil
read enough Reading Circle Books to receive a
certificate. We also visited the Public Library and
many of us became members so we could get books
We took two walks looking for beauties of nature
and exhibits For science. We did some simple exper-
iments, also, to make us alert to the world about us.
While we worked hard, we had playtime, too.
We did finger painting and smoke pictures, clay
modeling and crayola work . We made paper buildings
and constructed a ram . This was complete with house
furnishings, livestock and Farm equipment loaned by
the pupils .
We worked out units on "Good Health" and
"Good Manners" and made booklets for one .
We entertained our mothers to a tea, at which time
they observed our regular class work. We had part in the

This spring Mr. Bunting provided us with the opportunity of visiting his maple sugar camp.
We really enioyed it.
Last of all the biggest proiect was the zoo which we made. A camel, zebra, elephant, and
giraffe were made of paper mache. The habits, location of natural homes, why we have zoos,
care of animals and zoos were only a few of the facts
we learned. We spelled zoo words, made story problems
about the zoo, and wrote stories for English.
All in all, we had a well-rounded, busy, eventful,
and fruitful year. Of course, besides all of these things,
we studied and completed our numerous textbooks.

picked so not many cars turned up to be washed. In another effort to make money we held our iunior play
"Lights Out." It was a huge success, with everything turning out splendidly. Later before Christmas, we all
received boxes of salt water taffy to sell to our parents and friends. We sold quite a bit but never quite sold out.
The biggest day of our iunior year was the day we received our class rings. We all thought they were
wonderful, especially after waiting eleven years for them.

CLASS HI TURY
We started our high school careers four years ago as frightened and
yet hopeful and curious Freshmen with forty-two members. Our advisors
were Mr. Hoover and Mr. Blomeke, and our officers were president,
Marilyn Burkhart, vice president, Anthony Muehlfeld, secretary-treas-
urer, Carolyn Casebere, student council, Bart Kosier. The sophomores
welcomed us with a party and we in turn thanked them with another.
We didn't think too much about money making this year, although we
did have a bake sale and our dues amounted to 25 cents a month. As
freshmen some of us joined F.F.A., F.H.A., band, chorus, and some
of the boys made the baseball and basketball teams. During this year
we lost six members and gained two.
We started our sophomore year with thirty-eight members. Our
advisor this year was Mr. Shoup, and our officers were president,
Elsie Irwin, vice president, Phyllis Goebel, secretary-treasurer,
Marilyn Trausch, student council, Jim Free. As money making projects
we had another bakesale and sold Christmas cards. Our dues again
amounted to 25 cents a month. We were now eligible to join Hi-Y and
Tri-Hi-Y and some of us were accepted as members. Some of us were
honored to be chosen to serve the junior-senior banquet. Several of
our more studious members qualified as probationary members of the
National Honor Society.
Thirty-six of us returned to Edgerton High School in our junior year.
Mr. Stauffer and Mr. Koenn were our sponsors. As officers we elected
Elizabeth Knecht, president, Marilyn Trausch, vice president,
Margaret Herman, secretary, Virginia Reinhart, treasurer, Don Hug,
student council. The following twelve students were formally inducted
HAROLD FLEGAL -- "A little man."
JAMES FREE -- "The best way to get something done is to do it."

Elizabeth Knecht, Sharon Thomas, Marilyn Trausch, Virginia Reinhart,
Duane Miller, and Anthony Muehlfeld. We were very proud of our
beautiful class rings which we received this year. Earning money began
in earnest. Our dues were 51.00 a month. We had a bake sale, a car
wash, and also presented our class play "The Campbells are Coming"
directed by Mr. Koenn. The theme for the Junior-Senior banquet was
"Moonlight and Roses." We had a dance afterward for the students and
Our senior year again found us with thirty-six members. Mr.
Anderson sponsored us this year and our elected officers were Anthony
Muehlfeld, president, Junior Whitney, vice president, Sharon Henricks,
secretary, Virginia Reinhart, treasurer, Marilyn Trausch, student coun-
cil . Our senior pictures were taken and we received them in time for
use as Christmas presents. Our dues were SI0.00 this year. We sold
magazines, operated the concession stand for ball games and presented
our class play "Desperate Ambrose" under the direction of Mr. Koenn.
Our class was the first class here to sell over SISOO worth of magazines.
We feel we owe that success to the wonderful cooperation our class has
had through high school. During the second semester some of our more
studious members took scholarship exams. Also we selected as our class
motto "Life is What You Make It. " Our class colors were maroon and
gray and our class flower the white carnation. Two boys in our class,
Don Hug and Bart Kosier, ioined the armed services during the year and
that left us with thirty-four graduates. The class did not get to take
their annual skip day. Grades were averaged and Marilyn Trausch was
named as valedictorian, Juanita Emanuel as salutatorian, and Carolyn
Casebere as historian.
