As green as we were, we adjusted ourselves to the social life which helped us in our following years In school. It was quite a shook to us poor Fresh- ies having the point system ohanged. Our real chanoe oame in giving the play, " Torn 3awyer, soared as we were, we gave a fine performance. What a year 11 ii Hearing that the Seniors were not going to let us go to the Prom became our first disap- pointment. Funny thing! Hi There were Just as many freshmen as any other class. 1945-1946 Our success in the second year began with a danoe oalled “Sadie Hawkins Day, whloh was liked by all beoause of the help it gave some girls. All our talents were really shown in the play “June Mad, a three act comedy. As a reward for all our hard work in putting the play over, we were given a spaghetti supper, with baked beans, potato salad, and cole slaw- -some thing fit for a king. To end the year up with a bang, we had a " Mixer Dance, " and gave out paper mixing bowls as favors. We felt sure that no other class had ever put on as many successes as we have. 1946- 1947 This year gave us a chance to show our originality by putting on the first " Night Club " style dance, called Balloon Bally-Hoo " or " Club Junior. " then came the chance for the boys to make themselves a name by putting on " Junior Follies, " a minstrel show. The year was climaxed by our grand and glorious Prom; all centered around " An old Dutch Garden. " The hardest part came when we wanted to get the Dutch mill out to the Pavilion, but our cunning politicians came to the rescue and gave Mr. Swingley the Job of finding a truck. He finally did, too III To walk in and see the beautifully decorated room witty tulips and Dutch cos tumes, was enough reward for our hard labor. 1947- 1948 Our Senior year brought about the happiest days of our four years. Dignified high school students! This year stood for more sophisticated things than Just putting on a play, giving a dinner or doing mischievous things. We, the Seniors of " 48, " finally bad to get down to business, and work out ideas for our future days. There was the ordering of caps and gowns, getting cards and invitations, working on the REFLECTOR, planning the Senior trip, and many small but important jobs to be done. In finishing up the year we gave an " April Showers " dance which was highly praised. Sometimes when we have a moment to sparer our thoughts turn to never coming back to school; and of course we try to dismiss this thought right away. For you see, although sometimes we wish it were over, in reality we love it and will miss these glorious days. JERO ALOIA RAYMOND 3.

Later as I stepped heavily to runway number 7, of one of the largest airdromes in this U. S., I was amazed to discover the extent to which the city had grown, a popula- tion of six million. I deolded to start work from the west end of town. Again I was startled, for what had onoe been known as Brunswick was one of the largest shopping oenters of the state. As my plane had arrived at 6:30 P. M. I deolded to get a bite to eat and take in an early show, for I had a busy day ahead. I hailed a taxi and found, not to my surprise, Eugene Hanes behind the wheel. He must have been a mind reader for he drove me to a cozy nook specializing in Ita- lian Food. And who was to greet me at the door but Vero Alolai After my fill of spaghetti and conversation he informed me of a stage show now playing at Glass ' s Gallery; Just around the corner. I purchased my tickets from none other than Barbara Hathaway . Upon entering I found myself in a mammath theater. Timidly following the usher, " he walking on the top and I on the bottom (feet, that is) I knew it could be none other than Leonlel Baldwin . As I sunk heavily into the spongy seat, I gazed briefly over my program and found a few familiar names- - - Davee Lee Glass being the M. C. and of course Angelo Villa directing his own concerto. Looking further I found Janet Higgins doing an unforgetable interpre- tation of the sleep walking soene from Macbeth. Tired from traveling, I left the theater early but found no hotel room available because of the basketball finals being held in the Edison High School and College Gym. Stopping at a Novelty Shop run by Bob Barnack , I purchased a small atom and winged my way toward the end of town to an Auto Court suggested to me by the proprietor. Surely, this was the Atomic Age. Reaching my destination, I was greeted at the door by Shirley De . St . Jean and shown to my room, hater as I was falling gently into a long earned sleep, I was rudely awakened by the sharp shrill of untrained fingers on an Aooordion. To my amazement I found this to be in addition to an Auto ourt by day an Accordion studio by night. Entry March 18, 1958 I awoke early to begin my task. My first stop was Wallace Lawson ' s square Peal Real Estate office where I planned to learn of the business establishments on 5th Ave. Katherine Ohamales was busily taking dictation. She now had In- creased her speed to 180 words a minute. Inquiring, I was given the following list of business plaoes: Establishment Supper Club Import Export Fruit Co. Ready to Wear Clothing Engineers Architects Mortgage Company Fix it Shop Address 4840 W. 5th 4962 W. 5th 5012 W. 5th 5819 W. 5th 5016 W. 5th 6312 W. 9th Prop .

I began my canvas with a large boarding house. Owner, the former Barbara £rndorff , now happily marrledl Her star tenant was Phyllis Jordan , who was employed at Best ' s Supper Club and becoming a second Dorothy Shay. Strolling down the hall I found a newly painted sign which bore this Inscription, " Raymond Bliss . Prize Fight Promotor. Being in no mood for a fight, I skipped this door and went on to the next, meet- ing Rosalie Sassano . who also happily married was contemplating opening a shoe salon with the motto " Use your H e el and Save your Sole. " Henry Nunez manager. Reva Neeley , I found working hard to save money to buy graduation presents for her numerous sisters. Being eager to complete my work I out short the conversation and oontinued on my way. My next step was a neat white house situated on the corner. Upon inquiry I found it to he the home of Mr. Davis . Would wonders ever cease????? Having obtained my information I departed, going down the walk I encountered a familiar face, which upon second glanoe I discovered to be Roy Whiteside . now an up and oomlng vaoumn cleaner salesman. Roy, being a talkative person Informed me of the where abouts of my high school buddies of whom I had not heard from for a long time. Jean Carter was a missionary in Africa. Another member of the olass abroad was Dan Morlgl , an arohologist in an expedition to Egypt. Next I learned of Carmen Cortes and Dolores Kubaoki, who maintained a fashion- able health resort on the west ooast. Cut rates for Edison AlumnlUlt Also, Jimmy Hastings , proprietor of a large boatclubl Bidding good-by to my friends I continued on my Journey. My next stop being Edison u igh Sohool and College. After a short wa.k I entered the onoe familiar portals of learning. But were they familiar?? The olass of " 48 ' s dreams had been ful filed. The buildings stretched over an area of approximately 5 square blocks. After some difficulty I found my way to the office of Mr. Swingley. Opening the door I found a most familiar scene. Hattie Mae Hauok was now private aeoretary to Mr. Swingley, and Carolln ttansfleld was seated at a large glasstop desk replacing looker keys that had been lost during the day. Soon after I en- tered, the bell rang ending the sohool day. Presently I was confronted by a large group of teachers among whom was Edith Peters , assistant director of the Edison High Sohool and College band. Mildred G-o roe y was also teaching at the old " Alma Mater. " Roberta Van Horn was in charge of the dietetic laboratory. My Job completed, I headed for the air port. In route I couldn ' t help but notioe Donald Parry 1 s faoe on the billboards advertising Pepsodent Tooth Paste. Boarding the plane I discovered the stewardess to be none other than Betty Graham . I learned that Jackie Conway and Helen Pera, both hacollv married, had moved to New York. Ploklng up the paper I had purchased before boarding the plane I leafed through and saw Dean Ellis ' s Name topping the sport page. On the society page I read Margaret Rowan 1 s column , " Maggie, the Marriage Matcher. " She had signed it Mrs . Anthony Jr. Glancing over the stock market reports, I noticed Elkart French Horn Factory shares had taken a drop for Paul Estock was now running his own factory in competition with them. On the front page I found Sona Eryman ' a name. She had been promoted to private nurse to the president. Scanning over the amusement ads, I found the most up and coming band was an all girls band made up of J6 pieces, 35 of which were drums ... leader, Mar.lorle Martin. By now the motors of the plane were throbbing heavily and the pilot was mak- ing his last check before taking off. Muoh to my surprise I found it to be Bill Kos s . Thus I learned my life was placed in capable hands, for the navigator was Richard Duke . My Job completed and my curiosity satisfied, I fastened my safety belt; we took off. Looking down, I saw only acres of huge white clouds emblems of purity and cleanliness surely, we were now over the campus of dear old Edison.
