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

r . v Q-xji
The Senior Class of 46 started out as Freshmen
with 28 members in the class. 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
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
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.

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
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:

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
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

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
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:

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!

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
An interesting and melodious future is anticipated with
new instruments to replace the old, more tone and polish,

Due to the fact that all our music was lost when the
building burned last year, we had to start out with all new
work this year. 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

Immediately after football season we initiated the new
members that earned letters in football and also-those that
earned letters in baseball last spring. The new members made
a very exciting spectacle by sweeping Main Street, and giving
speeches of various types while attired in women's clothing.

The basketball season began with 10 players turning out,
only two of which were Letternen. Due to the lack of exper-
ienced players the season was not very successful in regard
to number of gac.es won. It3 real success is marked however,
by progress that was made in training team members and there-
by laying a foundation for strong squads in future seasons.

At the beginning of the year the Elgin High girls
started the new required Oregon Physical Fitness program.
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
