J V l 4.5151 , . g A ' ' It was with great pride that our school accepted the first Freedom Shrine given to anyone in this area. The impressive display was presented to the school by the Gary Exchange Club in a ceremony that the whole school was assembled to see. It was largely through the efforts of Iarries Tabor, Donald R. Troxel and George W. Baxter of the Exchange Club that the shrine came to Edison. The shrine contains famous documents of importance in American history ranging from the Declaration of Independence to the United Nations Charter: the shrine is on display in the lobby of the gym. The motto and real purpose of this Freedom Shrine can be summed up in this sentence, "No boy or girl who knows and reveres these famous documents ever will become a Com- munist." C. E. Swingley, Acting Superintendent Board of Education of Gam' Public Schools School Board: Claude Allen, secretary: Chas. E. Daugherty. president: Chris N. Retscn. treasurer: Mrs. R.

We have been rewarded by watching you become the fine young men and women of our graduating class of 1956. Our further reward will be in following your ac- complishments in the years to come. We have held the book of your life in our hands too long not to want to know the ensuing chapters. It is our hope that you will face your varied opportunities and respon- sibilities with confidence and courage, and that you will bring respect and honor to yourselves, your community and your high school, Gary Edison.

With Donald Barker as our leader, the first marker we left on our trail was "l-licktown Iam- boree," a regular old-fashioned square dance. The year found us exploring many trails of sports, social activities, contests and studies. Our next marker as a class was staked as we presented the Freshman Talent Show, where all talent was revealed. As sophomores. with 'Ronald Pavelka leading our journey. we once again sponsored a square dance, "Corn Cob Magic." which reaped many profits 'both financially and socially. Then came Sophomore Movie Night and a dance afterward and many plans for the trail ahead. With lim MacKeigan as our leader. we were juniors: all our plans plus our treasury were for the Iunior-Senior Prom. In pre- paration of our prom we sponsored two sock hops, in the new gym and found ourselves very busy working on different com- mlttees.

With our three-year journey well-marked, carefully and proudly we became full-fledged seniors. Bud Hamod was our choice for our leader, and we presented the first dance of the year. As seniors our activities were many: we were the leaders: we looked forward to our Senior Outing. Class Day, Student Teacher Day and Honors Day. Then came the traditional Convocation and Baccalaureate to remind us of the guiding light of our path and to infringe on us our duties and responsibilities as Americans. Commencement and graduation, Iune 1, 1956. finds us at the fork in the trail, with diplomas in our hands, and faith and hope in our hearts. We. the graduates of 1956, are ready to venture into the different paths of lille.

Camera Club Camera Club's main project has been to con- vert the pledges into bona-fide members by teaching them the basic steps in photography -- snapping the picture right to begin with, later developing the film and finally printing or enlarging the negative into a ARRL. As in preceding years the Site Swipers have assisted the professional photographer in the taking of the 1,800 individual pictures which are used for office files and the Reflector. This not only gives the members experience with professional equipment but also "fattens" the club's treasury. .. M3 ,. finished print. ...L n I I .,r.- tg -.mg-mai f' ,, a P i ......i.... .

This year GAA has started a club within a club, the GAA "E" Club.
