"LOVE IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE"
The Senior Class Play "Love Is Too Much Trouble," took place at a college dive called
the "Poison Pot," where the students met to discuss their love troubles, and where neutraliza-
tion pills, which render people unconscious, accidentally get spilled into food, and are innocent-
ly used as aspirin.
The Board of Health gave notice to close the 'Poison Pot" and the band leader, who
had been frozen, was defrosted. There trouble was just beginning. Police thought the laundry
truck was stolen: Monica talked too much at the wrong time, Shirley and Sugar Lou were
furious: Toastys customers drop like flies when they accidentally got some of Oggys pills: Dean
Ross fainted: and President Pillsy expelled everyone.
Only when Mrs. Bates praised the school and offered financial help did Dr. Pillsy re-
lent. and everybody's world begins to turn right side up.

happy years we have spent in E. H. S. We hope as you look through this book it will bring back
memories of your school days. We hope you will enjoy our yearbook as much as we have in
the planning and constructing of it.

On September 4, 1945, our present Senior Class
entered the doors of E. H. S. to begin a four year
course of study, fun and headaches due to books
which were loaded upon us.

their patience and consideration in this, our first year

initiation when we did as our upper classmen said, or
else-well they had some big paddles with them
that night. Following initiation a party was held for us
by the other members of the school.
During this year we lost Charles Shupe. We think
initiation must have been too much for him. Later on.
Bob McClelland and La Rue Stewart also withdrew.
Almost before any of u-s realized it, vacation had
rolled around and soon we were back in school study-
ing all the time,---well-most of the time.

james Marshall. We were very glad when Gladys
Clark from Apollo High School joined us.
Our class planned to have a party at the ball
field but rain chased us in to the gray walls of the
auditorium, which we had hoped we could leave for
This year a science club, the "Si Bi Chi" was or-
ganized and directed by Mr. Smith. In February the
club had an exhibit, displaying scientific projects such
as model airplanes, different kinds of lights, a machine
that made electricity and numerous other interesting
devices. The following night a round and square dance
was held in the auditorium.
lt wasn't long until june came and we left old
E. H. S, and all her books, only to return the follow-
ing autumn to begin our junior year.
Officers of our class this year were: Dan Smith,
President: Ruby Kimmel, Vice President: Donald Ru-
pert, Secretary: and Glenna Mae Wood, Treasurer.

lum and in the second semester Home Economics also
became a part of our course of Study.

Mr. Kunkle, Mr. Brown, and Mrs. Spicher.
We lost three of our members this year. William
Silvis quit school, Kenneth Wesner to the service.

This will has been duly witnessed and signed
by the 25 members of the Senior Class this 24th
day of May, 1949.
One cold day last winter as I sat before the
fire reading a book, I fell asleepzzzzzzzz and
as I slept I had the most wonderful dream, a
dream that took me twenty years into the
future. The title of the book I was reading was
"The 1959 Class of Elderton Ioint High
School," and strange to say I found myself in
Elderton Ioint City.
I had just landed from a plane whose pilot
was none other than my old schoolmate Bill
Anderson. He told me that after graduating
from Elderton Ioint High School he decided to
take up flying. He learned to pilot a plane at
one of the training schools in Shelocta and is
now working for the United Nations Transport
Elinor Mclntire and Helen Schall were so
glad they had studied P. O. D. at Elderton
Ioint High School, since they are the chief rep-
resentatives of Elderton Ioint City.
I decided I would go and see my old friends
Glenna Mae Wood and Ioanne Schall who are
appearing every week at the Metropolitan
Opera House on Elderton Avenue.
Oh! Yes, you are all invited back to Lucille
Silvis and William Reefer's wedding in Iune.
Mary Iane Green is a newspaper reporter
for "Elderton City Tribune," and she expects
to have a big write-up of Lucille and William's
wedding in Iune.
After seeing Mary lane, I took a bus over
to one of the department stores and found the
head managers to be Beverly Leightley and
Don Rupert has done very well for him-
self. He is chief-of-staff at the Iohn Hopkins
Hospital on 92nd Street in Girty.
I saw someone coming down the street
and found it to be Lois Henderson. She was
off-duty just then. You see she has graduated
from South Bend School of Nursing.
I went to the Art Gallery on Gastown
Boulevard and saw many paintings the most
beautiful of which was called "Winter Time"
and was a view of Elderton Ioint City, painted
from the school grounds during the great snow
of 1949. As I stood looking at the painting, I
became aware of the name plate in the corner
of it which said-Ianet Rearick.
I visited the motion picture studios in Elder-
ton Ioint City and four of the most famous stars
were Don Lawton, Ruby Kimmel, Gladys
Cribbs, and Virginia Bark.
I am not surprised to hear that Ronald
Shaeffer and Earl Rupert are giving private les-
sons of Algebra at Elderton Ioint High School,
since they were both very good in Algebra.
Dan Smith is being suggested as Secre-
tary of Agriculture for Elderton Ioint City and
the other cities surrounding it.
Wilda Gearhart and Arlene Mclntire have
started one of the largest homes for cats and
dogs in Whitesburg Valley.
Eileen Wray and Gladys Clark are travel-
ing sales ladies for Elderton Evening Post, and
Girty's Home Gardening Magazines.
On Elderton Boulevard is an ice cream fac-
tory owned and run by Leroy Rupert.
My dream ended and that is all I can re-
member because I heard Mother calling me for
SENIOR CLASS POEM
We are the senior class of forty-nine,
And l think surely we have done just fine.
Of course I'm really not to blame,
Since Wilda Gearhart is my name.
Virginia Barks comes first upon my list,
Followed by others I hope not to miss.
And next in line comes friendly Gladys
When you mention basketball she has lots
And now there's Gladys Cribbs who is my
To others she is just a plain old gal.
Eadra Flickinger has only one gait,
It seems to me she is always late.
MaryEIane Green is another bright scholar,
But dd wouldn't sell her for many a
Lois Henderson is a long old name.
Although she is cute just the same.
Since books to us are a pain in the neck,
You'll find Ruby Kimmel is right on deck.
Gilbert Frailey has a very nice car,
And Arlene Mclntire has seen that far.
l think Elinor Mclntire once more has a
Gearhart is the name, and he is never late.
Lucille Silvis is new this year,
When she is driving she forgets low gear.
foanne Schall can stand on' her head,
