SENIOR cmss Hxsrony Mm came to grace Eureka's halls in 1941, a record breaking class of 155 frightened freshmen. Greatly dub ous aid confused we wandered about the seemingly endless halls and our faith in mankind suffered a severe blow when upper classmen gave rather far-fetched instructions to our timorous inquiries. we were pnlite those first days and called our teachers Uma'amW and Wsirn and treated the upper classmen with respect, but soon we became accustomed taour surroundings and began to act Hnaturaln. Our class officers for that year were Paul Fran sen, Robert Mertz, Darrell Dunham, and Ada Weber. In the fresh- men vs. eighth grade game, we won by a comfortable margin. One hundred and twenty-nine of us came back in September, 1942, and we were still the largest class in school. We met early in the year and elected as class officers, Preston Ward, Paul Frandsen, Betty Frandsen, and Lester Kreig. Our- class basketball team was developing and feeling its oats and in off-the-record games defeated the juniors and lost to the seniors by a very close margin. There were 105 of us when we returned in 1945, and after the summer vacation, we were eager to begin what proved to be a busy and exciting year. We chose as class officers, Roy Jaeger, Preston Ward, Leonard Queathem, and Lynn Broemmelsick. we won both the junior- senior baseball and basketball games, but we ended hostilities and united with the seniors to form a basketball team which won second place in the Ferguson Tournament. Our prom committee chose a circus theme and transfonned the gym into a red and white streamered replica of a big top for the most important social event, the prom. We came back with our heads in the stratosphere in 1944, for this year we were the alleimportant upper-crust, the sophisticated seniors. Our number was greatly depleted because of the needs of the army and navy, but what we lacked in quantity was more than made up for in quality. We were on the beam when it came to selecting class officers, for we elected lynn Broernmelb ick, Jack Wulfmeyer, Betty Frandsen, and Jim Brundege. we were defeated by the juniors in the junior-senior baseball game, but we retaliated by winning the basket- ball game and almost before we were aware of it, the year had rolled around and it was May. Everyone had a glorious time at the prom which had a novel theme. Our last week is crammed with activity, on the last Tuesday we take our final examinations, on Wednesday comes care- free Senior Day, and finally Thursday, Graduation Day. We leave looking ahead expectantly toward the future, but at the same time feeling sincere regret at leaving Eureka's halls.
