As we the class of '52-'53 look back through the years, we hardly recall when '47
-'48 found us meek, timid, wide-eyed Seventh Graders. Due to inexperience and lack
of size, we did not appear in many of the activities or on many of the sport teams. We
did, however, present a school assembly: and we were represented on the boy's basket-
ball team. A few of the girls went with the Junior High softball team to the all-county
meet at Bel Air.
The Eighth Grade found us sponsoring a dance and giving our famous panel discus-
sion for the PTA-"Do Generals Make Good Presidents?" We were coming out for sports
by now and had several members on the football, basketball, and Jr. Varsity girls' bas-
By the Ninth Grade, when we were the big shots in Junior High, we were well rep-
resented in all school activities. We gave another dance and took part in all other pos-
sible activities. On our visit to Philadelphia we visited the Franklin institute and the
Museum of Natural History. Much emphasis was put on the following year's curriculum
when we would be entering Senior High School.
Our Sophomore year found us adjusting ourselves to the alphabet marking system
rather than S's and U's. A trip was taken to Washington accompanied by Mr. Boyle.
One member of the class toured the F,B,l, building. It was a trip never to be forgotten.
Throughout our Junior year we were busy and active in all realms around the school.
Our biggest project was the giving of the Junior-Senior banquet and prom. At the prom
we were formally presented our class rings from the seniors. We not only won the mag-
azine drive but doubled our goal of S150 proving that, as Juniors, we still found time to
get out and sell. We had the top salesman and third high salesman in our class. By now
the girls literally dominated the sport field, and although we only had ten voices in the
Glee Club, they were the necessary ones.
This year--our twelfth and last--finds us busy with name cards, announcements,
pictures, and the yearbook. We are anticipating a banquet from the Juniors--fit for a
king and a prom fit for his royal ball. The sport field is still being used widely by both
boys and girls. Then at last the day of graduation fso hard earnedl will find us proud,
yet rather sad, to be saying "so long" to our beloved Alma Mater.
