Kilby Sup’t. J. E. TolbertJJDJW 1 NI STATION After an absence of nearly fifteen years from my old home town I decided to return and see what new changes had been made and how many of my old classmates were still around. Just as I entered town I was startled by a car madly dashing up the street. I recognized it to be a classy 1940 Mercury and much to my surprise if it wasn't my old classmate Dorothy Boswell at the wheel. Seems to me I've seen that car before and after seeing Dorothy I suddenly remembered where. As I continued up the street I noticed three fam- iliar-looking faces and there were Betty Mae Nelson, Patricia Dunn and Marion Thompson. I found out later they had just returned from abroad as missionaries. Say, from the looks of things there still must be a man shortage as they all seemed to be surrounding a fam- iliar-looking gentleman who happened to be Pastor Simonsen. Now, girls even tho he is an old classmate, give him a little air'. Glancing on up the street, I noticed a smart look- ing grocery store with an attractive sign, 'r,Viles . Sons," across the front. Looking in the window I hap- pened to notice my old classmate, Jack Patten, behind the counter and I was happy to see he had made the grade. Who is the distinguished looking chap he is waiting on? I knew I should recognize him and sure en- ough it was Doctor Videll, physican and surgeon. Walking across the street, 1 decided to take a peek at the good old post office and who should I run into but my old friend La Neva Moore. I could hardly believe my ears when she started talking about General Payne. Seems just like old times, though, with La Neva either waiting to mail a letter or to receive one.I was very interested in the new businesses that had been added during my absence, so I decided to look around a bit. First thing I ran into was an insurance office and to my amazement there sat Billie Lou Hath- ron behind the desk. I always knew Billie would go in for something like this, as she was always so talkative and determined. The poor man she appeared to be giving the sales talk to just hadn't a chance. Well, if it wasn't my old classmate Ernest Nicoson! I really felt sorry for Nick as he was always so meek and shy in school. Stick with it Nick! Continuing on down the street I happened to think about the Rex Theater and wondered if it was still as thriving as when 1 left. Advancing nearer, I caught sight of a prominent-looking citizen going into the theater. Why, Wendell Poffenberger, my old classmate! I didn't have any idea he planned on having a the- atrical career, but sure enough his name was in lights above the familiar old spot. Very anxious to see the new school house, I drove up past and just had to go in and look around. Going down the hall I passed an open door and who should I see but Helen Carper, sitting at the desk intensely in- terested in her first graders. Wandering on down the hall I ran into a couple of my former classmates, Verna Scott and Helen McDonald. They were back at the old school as representatives from the Power's Modeling School. After enjoying a short chat with them, I no- ticed it was getting late and I must be leaving. Just one more thing to complete a very happy and enjoyable day in my old home town, which was a drive on Nob Hill. Driving along I noticed built on the hill- side, an outstanding home with a blue roof. As I drove closer, I could see my old school-mate, Marcella Mc- Daniel, displaying her abilities as a mother. Apparent- ly there is a party, for surely they couldn't all be hers. Of course, one never knows! Seeing my time was up, I started on my return journey and then and there I decided not to let so much time elapse before another visit.LP5T LUILL RflD TESTRrnEnT We, the Senior Cliss of 1945-4o, do nereby will and bequeath this 22nd day of April, 1946, many diverse characteristics to the following members of the Stud- ent Body: I, Helen McDonald, bequeath my long finger nails to Billie Jean Wiles in the hope she won’t chew them.

Helen McDonald and Wayne Griffith were the only new members to start out with us on our long and tedious way. Richard Hale, Dale Boswell, George Follett, Glen Long and Bill Car- per left the class during the year which left us a total of 23 members. The usual activities were carried on during the year. When we entered into our Sophomore year we still had our 23 members with one new one present, Marcella McDaniel, who transferred from Wallowa. Bill Kernen, Jack Payne and Ernest Nicoson left the class, but the last two members re-entered the following year. The Freshman initiation was prepared at the beginning of the year and a good time had by all, especially the Freshmen ! Our third year of high school was started with 18 members. Thelma Miller transferred from Pennsyl- vania but at the end of the first semester, she re- turned to her former home. Wilma Kennedy, a former class-mate, joined us a few weeks after school started. Margaretta Thomas transferred here from Craigmont, Idaho. The year was spent getting proceeds for our Junior-Senior banquet which we presented at the end of the year. One of our classmates, Ivan Simonsen, had to drop out of school due to illness. He was able to carry on his subjects, though, and will graduate with his class this year. Our last and final year in high school was started with 18 members. Patricia Dunn, Lou Harwood, and Betty Nelson being the only new members. The last two com- pleted their high school education in three years so they became members of our class. Margaretta Thomas, Bob Hammack and Jack Payne left during the year. Bob Hammack was called to the Army in November, ’45. We had previously honored him with a party and gift. In February, '46, Jack Payne was also called to the Army and a party and gift was given him before he left. All the boys have been very active in all the sports while they have been in high school. The girls have taken their place beside them in the field of sports and activities. Officers for the year were: President---------------------Jack Patten Vice President----------------Ernest Nicoson Secretary---------------------Margaretta Thomas succeeded by Marion Thompson Treasure»1--------------------Helen Carper riFVMfOM 1st row: Llrs. Kilby, D. Parsons, K. Burton, If.. Barlow, I. Elliott K. Rysdam, B. Wiles 2nd row: C. Chandler, B. Kalmbach, W. Johnson, D. Clark, W. Gekeler The 1945-46 Junior class has been a fairly active one. On December 13, 1945, we presented a three-act mystery-comedy, "The Ghost Chasers". The entire class took part fn it, either in the cast or on the production staff. The play was defin- itely a success. During basKetball season, the Juniors sold hot dogs at every home game, the proceeds going to the fund for the Jun- ior-Senior banquet. Through competent managing and salesman- ship, the Juniors netted a good profit on this venture. On April 18, 1946, came the all-blackface minstrel show presented jointly with the Sophomore class. We succeeded in obtaining Vr. 0. P. Weigel of La Grande, talented musician and entertainer, for the feature attraction. The show was written and presented by a committee composed jointly of Juniors and Sophomores. The Junior-Senior banquet is planned for the night of Kay 24, 1946, at the Foley Banquet Room in La Grande. All of us' are looking forward to having a good time at the banquet to round out a very pleasant year. Officers elected to serve the class for the year are: President............Dale Clark Vice 1 resident......Bob Kalmbach Sec.-Treas...........Billie Jean Wiles Sgt.-at-Arms.........Wendell Gekeler1st row: F. Carper, V. Dunn, C. Blanchard, J. Bechtel, P. N’edrow, D. Clark, A. Thompson, G. Elliott,. F. Kennedy 2nd row: W. Johnson, D. Witty, r. cruikshank, R. Sherwood, Mr. Haggerty, R. Cross, K. Miller, G. Jones, G. Stillman The Sophomore class started out with an enrollment of twenty members. During the year, Beverly Herr moved to La Grande where she now attends high school, and Mary Jane Ra- chau and Jack Scott dropped out of school. The first main event of the year was the Freshmen init- iation. The Freshmen were 3uch good sports about ti.eir rig- orous initiation that we were glad to welcome them as "real" student body members. Next, the Freshmen entertained us with a return party consisting of games anu refreshments. The gym was nicely decorated for the affair. The first of the school year Genevieve Grim. McCall, who was substituting to help out in the emergency that had arisen due to the resignation of one of the teaching staff, was our class advisor. .rhen a regular instructor was hired and Mrs. McCall left us, we gave her a party and presented her with a gift. At the student body spring fiesta, the Sophomores had charge of two booths. On April 13, we joined with the Jun- iors in presenting the big min3trel show. ost of the mem- bers of the class, both girls and boy3, took part in the athletic program, the newspaper, and various other school activities. Officers for the year were: President................Wade Johnson Vice I resident..........Ardith Thompson Secretary................Colleen Blanchard Treasure.................Duane witty Sgt.-at-Arms.............Kenneth Miller1st row: B. Follett, J. Dunn, J. Kammack, N. Johnson, A. Hug, B. Fox, B. Kennedy, R. Thompson, I. Carper, H. Tracy 2nd row: Mrs. Boyland, H. Cruikshank, G. Kennedy, R. Paxton, J. Albertson, E. Horn, N. Greybeal, S. Wilson, H. Scott And now we come to the Freshmen, the "green Freshmen", that is. That's what they were called at the first of the year. But as the year wore on and they began to get into the swing of it, toiling along with the rest of the student body, they were accepted as part of this select group. Now no one can have any more love for old E.H.S. than these "green Freshmen." As all the Freshman class takes "frosh" math., general science, and English I, the class is not broken up very much and still remains one great big happy family. Oh, so you don't agree that they're a happy family all the time, huh? Well, you have to have a few squabbles to keep everyone con- tent, don’t you? But, in general, they get along like bacon gets along with eggs. Much credit goes to their advisor, the jolly Mrs. Boyland. This gracious lady is like a mother to the whole class and is always willing to help out in any of their numerous little schemes. The Freshmen have participated in all of the student body events, as well as undertaking a few ventures of their own, one of which was a farewell party for a member of the class, LaCretta Thomas, who moved to Lebanon during the year. The officers elected for the year were: President................Julianne Dunn Vice President...........Juanita Hammack Secretary................Harlan Scott Treasure.................Ross Faxton Reporter.................Helen Cruikshank Continued on next page 1st row: R.

Kennedy "ROSES ARE RED— VIOLETS ARE BLUE; SKUNKS STINK— FRESHMEN DO TOO I" (Continued from previous page) This class has distinguished itself in many ways during these nine months. Helen Sue Tracy was chosen as Song iueen. Juanita Hammack, Arleta Hug, and Norman Greybeal are the Yell Leaders. Another freshman, Ross laxton, was chosen as chief artist for the school paper, "Kuskie Howls," and art editor for this annual. Ross, Sidney Wilson, and Eugene Horn also earned a name for themselves in the field of sports by earn- ing a letter and being initiated into the Lettermen's Club. Almost all of the Frosh. girls belong to the F.H.A., G.A.A., and the Glee Club, two of them holding offices in the F.H.A. The class flower is pine boughs. Now don't sav that pine boughs aren't a flower'. 'e realize that—but they're so-o-o-o purty. The colors are green and white. Very char- acteristic of the class is its mascot, the magpie. Last but not least comes the class pin. Some say it is only temporary. And what is it, you ask? Why the safety pin, of course! C f - ► c C «! C’ 0 r f (1st row: C. Dyer. I. Ha.ua.ack, N. Johnson, A.

Hug, A. Hug The band, like most other activities and many classes, took a setback during the war. Jeveral members remained how- ever of a once-excellent organization. Aarlee Burton with his trumpet, trombonist Ernest Nicoson, Jack Patten with his clarinet and our bass drummer, Lou Ceile Larwood made up the necleus out of which a band must be built. The new director exchanged his navy blues for a baton and arrived on December 3, armed to the teeth against Hscords foul notes and after-tonus. During t three surveys were made to evaluate the local talent, interest,' and equipment available. starting about the 2nd of January, recruits were intro- duced to the instruments that could be found. Dome were brought into use that in normal tines would have long si v- be throw 1'tc the scrap heap. But one thing was in the band’s favor. Many students had had a previous acquaintance with music and made excellent pro- gress, and all were more than anxious to do double time to build a good band in the least possible ti: s. By April, the group had grown to 36 with enough polish to render several marches, an overture, and a nice selection of novelty numbers. An interesting and melodious future is anticipated with new instruments to replace the old, more tone and polish, a drum major and batonists and numerous public ap earsnces. i r Cl e c ft ft ft C c C c C C C cr CL 1:1.

Copies of various classical and semi-class- ical numbers were purchased and practice began. The group has sung for the annual school Christmas pro- gram, for the P.T.... Christmas party, and for the P.T.A. founders' day program in February. During Lusic '.Yeek, the second week in Lay, the glee will present a spring concert together with the band. Glee num- bers for this event have been arranged in groups according to theme instead of according to composers or types of selec- tions. We consider it remarkable that about 90 percent of the girls in the student body are in the glee club. B. Wiles, D. Parsons, I. Elliott, N. Rysdam, K. Burton : ; Iby, W. Johnson, D. Clark, W.

Any girl who is either studying home economics or who has had at least one year of it is eligible for membership. On February 23, 1946, the charter members and their advisor, Mrs. Kilby, attended the district F.H.A. convention at La Grande where they were initiated and the officers installed by the La Grande chapter.

The number of points required for awards are: 50 points for arm shields 100 points for a small "E" 150 points for a large "0" Fourth award is a small gold pin shaped like a winged foot. This is awarded to Seniors only and they must meet certain health, grade and sports requirements.

The new members made a very exciting spectacle by sweeping Main Street, and giving speeches of various types while attired in women's clothing. Since initiation the letterman club has been very inactive this year.1st row: N. Graybeal, K. iller, G. Jones, J. .i'ilson, u. lat- ten, R. Cross, S. Korn, J. Payne, Gekeler, R.

Because it wa3 thought that there would be no inter-schodi volley ball this year, little time was spent on practicing for it. however, when some of the schools began asking for games, Elgin accepted enthusiastically. Different teams and also different captains were chosen for each game which gave each girl who wanted tovse chance to play.j a Base € ££ ■ 1st row: R. Cross, G. Jones, E. Kicoson, D. Widell, C.
