There were 57 of us then and our numbers grew to the large total of 61 by the end of the year After that memorable ll'llllCl10I'l day we elected offlcers Albert Wallaert as president and Charles Lamb Naomi Miller Glenn Duus Carl Ahnert Dean Qualls and Miss Gurney and Mr Petrasso as advisors to help hmm We then began to feel at ease and as if we belonged Our success of the year was the Cupids Caper Valentine dance We also sponsored the freak booth at the carmval and had a class party for freshmen exclusively The class of 49 started young in its activities our freshman year saw Barbara Schenk

cash 1n hand we gave the Prom The theme Garden of Dreams was carried out beautrfully with little wish mg wells and moss and flowers on the tables The dance was held in the gym decorated hke a garden
