This is the year we can call "our" year, just as every other senior class has had the opportunity to do. This is the year we once thought would bring an end to that long struggle for knowledge, but even though it may be hard lor some ol us to admit. we quite often overhear our classmates reveal the tact that they really don't feel as big and important as they had hoped and thought they would. All of us feel more as though we are beginning all over again with many new opinions, ideas, and experiences we have gained through the past four years. Let's look back to the fall of 1947 and the beginnings of our class. Six of us, Peter Tannenberg, Sally Strothman, Andy Shillinglaw, Mari Romeis, Bill McNamara, and Mary Louise Drechsel, began the path that was to be continued by our followers. Friendships that would last a lifetime were already being formed. Then as the next year rolled around a new headmaster. E. P. Droste, came and was to see us through graduation. To ioin our class came his daughter, Adele, and Sarah Iane Ferry. This was only the beginning of the second year, of what seemed such a long tour years. That Iunior year now came into view and we had finally become upper classmen. Entering our group were Claude Chapman, Betsy deForest, Ioan Gourley, Diane Heth, Lewis Iafle, Gail Montgomery, Ion Moulton, Roy Newberg, Barbara Pontius, Charlie Thompson, and Beverly Valentine. Our Iunior year seemed to end before it had a chance to begin, and we were wishing we could do more than just reminisce about the past Homecoming, Aeich Dance and the other fond memories. Along with the arrival of our Senior year, that glorious year, came many new teachers along with more new seniors to compleie our class. The past year brought lack Burgess. Tom Dunker, Lee Karcher. Iean Mensing. Iohn Paschal, and Ierry Sheerin. As Father Time carries us on our way we shall have many wonderful memories of our days at E.A.
