X- , ix 1 l fy U A11 of the people on these pages are real people, familiar people. They are friends, classmates, teachers - - - us. We have prob- lems that we work out together and pleasures that we share and remember forever. We relive those days of classes, fun at games and odd moments. Going through these pages we recall the quiet hush in the gym when that deciding basket is thrown and the feeling of belonging as we listen to the screams and shouts during an exciting game. Perhaps we recognize ourselves staring vacantly into space while other members of the class study. We find ourselves dancing dreamily at one of our dances or standing in the lunch line with a tray, full of tattle-tale calories. It's a good year, a full year. We see in mere pictures and words the feelings we hold toward Fordson - the feelings, tinged with regret, of those who are leaving us and the happy feelings of those who stay on. We view -our life at Fordson, AS WE ARE. To 3 'S rv' 4 AS we ARE.. X Qi K1 -XX H N- sis? -fy F- ixxyiwx Q 1 xg Qsw S x KN .

New friends and acquaintences are apparent, as our family grows with the addition of the Hlittle 10B's." Our class routine runs much more smoothly now, activities are planned, and sports are beginning to be highlighted events. Long hours of tedious practice give way to spirited competition on the field in football, thrilling and full of excitement. With the coming of football, we honor our homecoming royalty, who reign at the homecoming game and dance, annual traditions at Fordson. Until the first snowfall, the girls play field hockey outdoors, perhaps concentrating more on the boys playing on the adjoining field. We perk up our acting skill for the fall all-school play and march endlessly down the football field to perfect the halftime enter- tainment. New teachers begin to prounounce our names correctly and all too soon, autumn drifts into winter and we continue our lives at Fordson, AS WE ARE.

Their dedication of their talents to leading us has resulted in a school which we would trade for no other. Behind a door that is always open, Mr. Ardis goes efficiently about the business of being the top person in school. The fact that everyone connected with this vast "Operation Fordson" feels at ease with him is a tribute to his superior administra- tion. In him we find a one-man psychologist, social worker, diplomat, teacher, purchasing agent, judge, accountant, and maintenance man. Recreation and discipline are the special responsibilities of Mr. Romanow. The few of us with a knack for wrong things at the right times remember this assistant principal for his sin- cere efforts to straighten us out before it is too late. Most of us remember the brighter side of his job - the scheduling of dances, assemblies, and movies. And who could forget his pet project this year: the shiny, red-and-white popcorn machine, which made the air worth breathing on Friday afternoons. The quiet member of the trio, Miss Bice, is the "worrier" that Fordson needs for smooth operation. She distributes teachers and students twice a year, so that all of us are happy with our class schedules. In true woman-fashion, she is a walking appointment book of information. No special events, no routine occurences sneak up on us. She always sees that we know what's coming next. They know us, these principals, better than we know our- selves. Because they head Fordson, we enjoy some of the finest experiences available to high school students anywhere. X 'T 71 Elizabeth Bice Assistant Principal M --Vp--M.- T.

The responsibilities put on their shoulders are sometimes nearly back breaking, but in spite of that they always have time to chat or help us out. The average school day of a counselor usually begins earlier in the morning than ours. There are absence excuses to be filled out, and the telephone sounds con- stantly from calls of parents of sick students. Other jobs of our school-time "moms and dads", are to give us guidance and help in preparing our credits for college or whatever field of endeavor we choose. Along with all the other things crowding the busy lives of our advisers, they accomodate us by being class sponsors, and we always see one or two of them chaperoning at our dances. They continue to help us out by those much-needed pats on the back, pep talks, or, perhaps, in some cases, a little discipline is the solution to a problem. But, when our days at Fordson have ended,we feel sad, because we will miss our school-time parents and the friends we-ve made. We will never let their helpfulness and cheer elude our memories or our hearts.

Our motto: "We're from Fordson, and are we proudn. During the nippy time of the year, when snowflakes engulf the school premises, we note the clever decorations which our students proudly display for all to enjoy. The annual Christmas program, presented by the music department, is another of our 'flooked forward to" traditions. Some of us get excited when mid-year graduation exercises approach. The last festivity of the fall semester, the January prom, is a big event for both seniors and underclassmen. Changing from another school to Fordson, our new 10B's are excited, too, at the beginning of their high school career.

A. A. banquet which strikes Nancy Barlow, 12A, as being very funny. Miss Alice Krug lends a serious touch to the matter. Engaged in various other affairs dealing with the preparations that must be completed are: Karen Karlovetz, Ann Kuczin, Virginia Clements, Nancy Barlow, Kay Sheren, Dorothy McCallion, and Cynthia Harbowy, all 12A's. G.A.A. In order to stimulate an interest in the girls' intramural games and to promote good sportsmanship, the Girls Athletic Association was organized. To become a member of this club, a girl must first obtain a given number of pointsg these points are increased for every grade. The members must earn sixty points every semester in order to remain members. Once a girl is in G.A.A., she may try to earn enough points to receive the various awards. The awards range in importance from small Fls to a gold pin, which is the highest award given in G.A.A. Usually only the girls who are outstanding athletes receive this pin. ,-4-. :T G.A.A.

After a girl is in G.A.A., she finds it much easier to obtain points' because G.A.A. members receive points for ice skating and other such activities. Another way in which the members may obtain points is to be an active member in the Officials club, and officiate at many of the intramural games. Although G.A.A. is a sports club, it does have other interests. Almost every G.A.A. member looks forwards to the banquet that is held when she graduates. This banquet is probably the most important event given in G.A.A. At the banquet the members give their final farewells to the graduates and the retiring officers. There, too, the new officers are installed. Another activity greatly enjoyed by the G.A.A. members is the senior trip. The seniors usually go to a cottage in the spring and spend a weekend.

The Drama club memberslistento and discuss many of the Broadway plays. At times they themselves put on small one-act plays. The reason for this is that Drama club members wish to learn more about acting, and to appreciate many of the famous plays and actors. J, DRAMA CLUB Top row: Me-rlino, Block.

They work mostly algebra problems on the board, and the students that know algebra and would like to learn another language find the club very interesting, and challeng- ing. The members of the club findtime to attend plays as well as movies which deal in some way with the Germans and their ways. With the hopes of providing some sort of relaxation aside from math and German, the club has field trips also. Debating has become a common thing for most Debate club members. This club which was started for thefirst time this year is proving to be very success- ful. For many of the club members seem quite pleased with it, and feel that it has provided them with enjoyment as well as information. During the past year they have held debates on such topics as f'Capital Punishment", "Sororities and Fraternities", 'tAre Flying Saucers Real?" and "Should Boys Be Allowed to Wear Levis." -101- WE LOVE SPORTS AND MOVIES 197 K.

It is under the supervision of Mr. Donald Calkins, history teacher. Q.

A sweet little blonde actively shows her interest in our annual Christmas festivities. Mr. William Macintosh, English instructor, thinks of what English book he will assign her, i.f she ever takes his class. Perhaps this cutie is a future Fordsonite. r n X WITH TALENTED TEAMWORK, The annual Christmas program was one of the highlights of the early winter season and Mr. John Boniiglio retold for the audience the story oi the Nativity and the coming of the Christ Child.

Maybe one of the outstanding characteristics of our arrival and departure was the weather. As l0B's, we arrived with the snowfall, and, as seniors, we departed in the same atmosphere. Most of us seem to feel that the smallness and coziness brought on by chilly weather only helped to bring us closer together. As we look back, perhaps the first thing that comes to our minds is our senior prom. Golly, the boys looked so sharp and the girls ---- a walking fashion show. We always had to do things inarush. Unlike the .Time class that has all summer, we had only two days to prepare for a new school or grade. We'll always remember the fun and mix-ups of our concessions. Though our profits in money may not have been much, our profits in experience and pleasure exceeded their bounds. Whatever our destinies, our love and happy memories will always blossom at the thought of Fordson, so responsible for us ---- As We Are.

Our noon -hours are spent out on the grass, counting the days until summer vacation begins. Track, goli, and tennis keep many of our boys outdoors after school hours. Girls and fellows wage cold wars. The girls have slightly romantically-tinged, after-school plans, while the boys think only of baseball and track. Finally, feminine wiles win, and the girls proudly attend the .T-Hop, escorted by aspiring stars. The J-Hop is our star attraction of the spring and is a festive and romantic occasion. The boys sport their ever-popular dark suits, while the girls wear light, billowy formals. We dance 'til morning, then go out for an early breakfast. Following spring vacation, banquets are prominent. Some of us begin to realize that there are onlyafew treasured weeks remain- ing of our high school days. Seniors witness their last all-school play with mixed emotions, while graduation time hovers ever nearer. f 2 We watch intently as the commencement proceedings begin. Joy, accompanied by tears, is evident, and our seniors proudly march to receive their diplomas. The last major dance, the June prom, is held in honor of our graduating seniors, citizens of tomorrow, products of Fordson, AS WE ARE. ,Nhxs 9 EQ 'f'i 5, 5 91 ,, 'D qi '+V xx Q, v -if Ns 4' Q' at .w Z5 M ,pxu TATU- "It'5 mine!

As we recall our memories, sentimental and funny incidents tickle us with their happy meanings. Remember that first day as l0B's and how confused we were? Boy, we didn't think very much of seniors then. We thought we'd never learn which stairs went up and which went down, not to mention the mystery of G Hall. The sound of the whole school singing the school song is some- thing we'll recall for many years, along with the quiet hush just before the Pledge of Allegiance. How different the kids all looked under the dimmed lights at our dances, and didn't the cafeteria look grand after the drapes and pictures were added? Perhaps, the most important memories are of our pals. The upper classmen who bullied us when we were l0B's, aswell as the underclassmen we bullied, our best friends, classmates, and teachers will always be tops. One of our greatest thrills came in our junior year, when we became state champs in basket- ball and swimming. At our victory assembly, remember how the kids sitting next to us tried to hide their tears to say nothing of how we nearly choked on those lumps in our throats? Yes, we can surely remember a lot and be proud to be a part of Fordson, . . . AS WE ARE.
