W M U EAD 'EM AND SMILE ... We look back to the nooks and crannies of Ferndale High and see what its inhabitants unnoticedily have done and said_______oh dear me! WE ONLY HEARD MISS MYERS . . .

GOOD OLD GOLDEN RULE DAYS Zoom! What was that? Another air raid. Who would have thought of such a thing in 1870? Why no one, of course, except Grandpa. Today we have modern education. No longer are we taught to the tune of a hickory stick . . . instead our dear teachers just say so calmly, "one week in detention for you." Our daily life would be lost in modern '42 without the 5 cent movies, book reports to worry about, P. D. tests to flunk, admit slips for the late comers, I. Q. tests to see what we don't know, or count- less whatnots of which we haven't the space and time to re- mind you. THERE WENT POP’S GASOLINE On May Sixteenth the Juniors and Seniors were ushered into the Masonic Temple for the social highlight of the year, the Junior-Senior Reception. In keeping with the annual custom, the Juniors entertained their Senior guests with a tasty and appeasing banquet follow- ing which the couples adjourned to the ballroom for dancing. For several hours evening gowns and new suits whirled to the music of Nevin Jones and his orchestra. Swing, jive, waltzes and even a dash of novelty had its respective place on the program. In spite of drastic tire and gasoline rationing, some couples had made plans to walk to the reception; others decided to take a trolley; while the wise old owls comtemplated carrying a spare milk can full of gasoline in the trunk, just in case! (for- give us Punk). Oh my, it would be called off after all! Shucks. Now our worries are over after weeks of figuring and wondering. ★ ★ IT’S ALL OYER BUT THE SHOUTING Curtain call! This began the end of our career as students of Ferndale High. Senior Class Day—May 20. Here were all of our hidden talents in acting revealed. Then for a more serious type of event we met at the Park Avenue U. B. Church—June 7. This provided us with a helpful sermon by Rev. Weaver. To top everything off—June 8 was the date for commencement exercises held at the high school. Caps, gowns, stage fright, sorrow, joy, memories and the nearness of the future became mixed in the Melting-Pot. Thus we graduated! MANY VARIED AND GLEEFUL
