HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1956 We, fhe class of '56, began our sophomore year in Sepfember, 1953, by meefing new friends, feachers, and subiecfs. Af firsf we felf Iosf in fhe maze of upperclassmen buf soon became acquainfed. Our firsf imporfanf iob was fo gel' ourselves organized. To lead our class in our acfivifies, we elecfed class officers: presidenf, Jack Douberfeeng vice-presidenf, Dennis Tepeg freasurer, Beverly Wilkinson: secrefary, Ted Fihsimmonsg boys' social chairman, Morey Mowaf: girls' social chairman, Rufh Raafz. Rufh and Morey planned a good class parfy, which was held on April 10. Miss Morey and Mr. Harding were chosen as our sponsors. Miss Deal and Mr. Kauffmann were our counsellors. We began our iunior year wifh fhe elecfion of class officers. Ted Fifzsimmons was chosen as presidenf, Morey Mowaf as vice-presidenf, Susan Haines as secrefary, Vince DeDario as freasurer, and Janef Huffman and Dave Boussom as girls' and boys' social chairmen. On Ocfober 12 our class rings arrived. We displayed fhem proudly, feeling like full-fledged juniors. Our firsf big proiecf of fhe year was presenfing fhe Junior Follies. The fheme for fhe Follies was BEHIND THE FOOTLIGHTS. Days and monfhs passed quickly. We soon found our- selves preparing for fhe Junior Class Play. We chose fhe play ONE FOOT IN HEAVEN and sef April 29 as fhe dafe of performance. A casf of giffed iunior acfors showed fheir abilifyg ofhers helped behind scenes. The nexf, and biggesf, evenf of fhe year was fhe Junior- Senior Prom which was held on May 12. We mef fhe chal- lenge of decorafing fhe new Norfhside Gym successfully by creafing an EVENING IN PARIS fheme wifh wall murals, Sfanding: Jack Douberfeen, presidenfg Jon Armsfrong, freasurerg Jim Murphy, boys' social chairman. Seafed: Don Weaver, vice-presidenfg Bev Wilkinson, girls' social chairman: Peggy Veafch, secrefary. sidewalk cafes and a replica of fhe Eiffel Tower. We felf fhaf fhe firsf prom in fhe new gym was a greaf success. Lasf fall we sfarfed our senior year. We were sorry 'I'o see Miss Morey leave affer working wifh her for fwo years. However, Mrs. Fox capably began working wifh Mr. Hard- ing and fhe senior class. Our firsf big proiecf was our class play, YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU. We all worked hard, since fhis was our lasf chance fo help swell our class finances. The play was performed successfully by a falenfed casf. A+ 1-he end of fhe firsf semesfer we all gave a sigh of relief. Some of us were beginning fo feel fhaf we wouldn"l' be as eager fo leave EHS as we had anficipafed. We had become quife affached fo our school and our feachers, in spife of our peffy mumblings. The firsf week in March we had our lasf senior parfy, fhe LAST CLASS BLAST af Sfudebaker Park. H' was well- planned and well-affended. As Commencemenf drew near, clofhes and acfivifies were a consfanf source of worry and conversafion. We found ourselves geffing busier and busier as fhe days flew pasf. Then came Senior Day, Senior Tea, Senior Banquef, and af lasf Commencemenf, a fruly happy climax fo a busy fhree years. As we furned in our caps and gowns, we were sad fo close fhe happiness we had known as fhe class of '56. 113 ,lm 1' 114 '. 9' , '03 257' 'Er if -qu-nf I A-mf RN-,whiz - ,li 1 xy? k Q.

We hurriedly s+ar+ed +o work on our Follies, SAINTS AND SINNERS. To carry oul' fhe Theme, aclors and chorus line dressed in cosfumes 1i'Hing +he +i+le. On 'The nighl' of Ocfober 15, we worried over all 1'he lasl'-minule de'1'ails: spo+ligh+s, props, curlains and audience.

However, we seHled down afrer a few weeks and began a year of work and play. We began aH'ending games, dances, and orher school funcfions. We also joined clubs, according +o our in+eres+s, and aH'ended meefings. Soon we organized, choosing class officers and sponsors. We elec'red fhese people 'io guide us: presidenf, George For+inog vice-presiden+, Gary Ever+sg secrerary, Susan Teusherg freasurer, Dave Keller, girls' social chairman, Reverie Rogers, and boys' social chairman, Ed Borneman. Homeroom chairmen, Miss Amsbaugh and Mr. Cooper, were our sponsors. Soon we began fo feel a parl' of 'Phe school ac+ivi+ies, accepred as full-'fledged members of fhe sfudenl' body. The monfhs wen+ by quickly. We kep+ busy wi+h school work, games, and ac+ivi+ies. ln April, we held a class parfy, planned by our social chairmen, which was a lol' of fun and a huge success. When we ordered our class rings in fhe spring, we fell' +ha+ we really belonged a'l' Elkhar+ High School. As our sophomore year came 'I'o a close, we looked forward +o +he nex+ year, hoping 'rhal' il' would be as mem- orable and enjoyable as our 'iirs'1 year a+ EHS. 141 Q av 1 VA V K, A A .
