SIAIIS llll Ill Slllllll Ill SIISSISS Farmington, Mich., June I7- ln a recent interview exclusive with this staff, the renowned stage family, Class of '49, ably backed by their technical advisers, described their four-year struggle for stardom. The first production in 1945 featured Bill Goers, president, Dick Martindale, vice-president, and June Hunt, secretary-treasurer. The boys of the family, billed as the Falcon Frosh, proved themselves worthy of their supporting roles by trouncing the opposition to win most of their football games. The final show of the season was the Farewell Dance, which received the Critics' Award for '45-46. In preparation for their future conquests the group spent the '46-47 months in dramatic schools under the direction of Fred McLean, president, Betsy Udell, vice-president, and Dorothy Cutter, secretary- treasurer. Managed by Velma Goers, president, Fred Allen, vice-president, Dick Martindale, secretary, and John Buck, treasurer, the troupe benefited by their two years' previous experience when they played in several outstanding hits of the '47-48 season. Climaxing weeks of planning, they presented their first really big performance, the J-Hop, "Underwater Fantasy," on December 6. The Carnival, a circus barkers' heyday, featuring the Sweetheart of F.H.S., was staged on April IO. On May 15 they satisfactorily carried out their greatest undertaking, the Junior-Senior Banquet. Actors receiving special honors were Velma Goers, Girls' State, Dick Martindale, Fred McLean, Dick Wheeler, Boys' State, Fred McLean, Out- standing Athlete of the Year, and Sue Sugden, recognition for exceptional work done in the Scholastic Writing Contest. In the fall of T948 the more daring members appeared in a rollicking comedy, "Brother Goose," on November 20 before a full house. For recreation between shows the boys who had not joined the Athletic Union played some of their directors in a rip-roaring Senior-Men Faculty basketball game. The proceeds were donated to the hard-working Trip Club. One of the highlights of the spring period was the Senior Prom on April 30. The property men and stage hands achieved almost incredible South Sea Island atmosphere. During the weekend of June fourth, the family went on a cruise to Mackinac Island before returning for the finale. Commencement Week began on June 'IO with Swing-Out, when the group first wore quite different costumes, blue caps and gowns. This was followed by the Baccalaureate Service on June 'I2 in the F.H.S. Auditorium. On June I6, in the last scene of the last act, the Class of '49 received their individual certificates of merit. This famous cast, after these present engagements, will no longer act as a unit of eighty-two. Each player will try for a part in some drama particularly suited to his own interests and ability. llIliilIlllIiS A li PlillNlPliliS Orville E.

His heart was happy and filled with glee, For today a graduate he would be. "Today" was June 16-a day of cheers, Of laughing and singing, and maybe of tears. The time was eight-with dusk coming on, And deep in his heart there was born a great song. First place: the gym, second: Home Ec. Went Jake with a smile and no sign of regret. He donned a blue cap-with a tassel hung low, A gown to match in color just so. His heart was pounding, his knees gave a knock, He trembled as though suffering electrical shock. With nerves on edge and eyes all wet, He joined the others in the hall where they met. Friends were seated, the lights were all dim, There wasn't a sound all over the gym. The music began more slowly than slow, At first he couldn't move-his legs shook so. The lines were so even, the steps all in time, He felt like a poet composing a rhyme. Up to the center, then turn to the right, Find your seat and just sit tight. Who was speaking from up on the stage? His curiosity almost turned to a rage. "Turn and look!" said conscience to Jake, "No, just sit still-for Heaven's sake." A student was speaking, with voice toned high, On subjects of interest to seniors nigh. The notes rang clear, the words were distinct, Jake sat on his seat like a statued sphinx. Then came the applause, it filled the whole gym. He thought surely it was the moment for him To get on his feet, off that hard seat, And march across stage his fate to meet. Surely enough he had figured right! It was time for him to show his might. He stepped from the wings at just the right time To hear his name called, which made him feel fine. He walked across stage with a strut in his stride And received a diploma and a sense of pride. No longer a senior was Jake now, For this spot a junior would stand and bow, But memories are left of that happy date When Jake, a senior, became a graduate.
