This senior year, long looked forward to by the Class of ' 59, has come and gone too quickly. Final exams, Baccalaureate, and Commencement came too soon with the realization that the senior year was over. However, the Class of ' 59 will often look back on the days spent at Edison, remembering their many activities, being officers and members of the many organizations and clubs, pub- lishing the school paper and yearbook, taking part in the senior play, .participating in athletics and cheerleading, winning the powder puff game, and enjoying themselves at the Prom as well as the dances and banquets they sponsored and attended while attaining the useful knowledge they will need as they go out into the world to make their own marks. 1 8 Seniors CAROLYNN JANE ATKINS - " Janie " SSS, Homemaker, FTA, Commercial Club, Pep Club.

WILLIAM DOPP MARY PIRJAS JUANITA MATTINGLY GEORGIA ROGERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Juniors Following the adjustment to their daily program of five subjects plus classes in choir, band, and art as electives the first few days of school, the juniors elected their class officers and Student Council representatives, who were Anita Bradford, Barbara Czilli, Ned Anderson, and James Wagner. After a few years of absence, the junior class play was once again one of the major activities of the school year. " The Eager Miss Beaver " was presented very successfully under the direction of Mr. Whitby, one of the junior class sponsors, in Edison Gym on December 10. Another exciting day of school for the juniors in the month of December was the fifth, on which day they received their class rings. Once again the traditional junior money-making affair, having been instituted last year, was the female basketball game. The most exciting and closing event of the year was the Junior-Senior Prom given in honor of the seniors, which provided an evening of " Fascination " for those who attended. In just a short time following the Prom, " only one more year " was the thought of each junior the last day of school.

At the beginning of the year, the members of the class elected officers, and each home room elected a Student Council representative to represent the class on the Student Council; the sophomore repre- sentatives were Richard Lee, Bernard Spencer, Armonde Yanez , Jaclyn Wignall , and James Taylor . The year proved to be a busy one as each of the students carried five subjects, while those who took choir, band, or art had six, as well as having the privilege of participating in and enjoying athletics and the many activities of various organizations and clubs of which each chose to become a member. One-third of their senior high school life became history the last day of the school year, as the students left the portals of Edison for their summer vacation.

Student Council The Student Council was composed of twenty-five members, the largest number in the history of tie school, as each of the home rooms of each class elected a representative instead of the limited number of two from each class in former years. The new set-up provided for a home room period each Monday and Friday . During the year, several projects were undertaken. One was to form a chapter of the National Honor Society, an organization composed of most of the school ' s top quality students. Another project was to purchase a flagpole for the front lawn of the school. Several large American flags were procured for the pole through the aid of Senators Homer E. Capehart and Vance Hartke and Representative Ray J. Madden. Also, the Council assisted the faculty in the supervision of the lunchrooms as well as having charge of the lockers and monitors in the halls. The final undertaking was the supervision of the election of a president for next year.
