And, now as gallant Seniors, we gaze backward upon our four years spent in
H. H. S. We cannot help but smile as we pause a moment to think of our school
days which have glided by, and will linger as memories as we take our place-each
in his own new world.
As verdant Freshmen we were inexperienced and bewildered as to how our up-
perclassmen-Sophomores in particular--were to 'manage' us. Our first spectacular
event was initiation-Freshman Week-everyone was amused, and we secretly en-
joyed being the center of attraction. After we got to know each other fairly well, we
elected class officers for our Sophomore year. The officers were as follows:
President-Martin Sutphin Secretary--Ruth Mount
Vice President-Virginia Blum Treasurer-lerome Welsh
As Sophomores we were very concerned with the affairs of the Freshman. How
we razzed them during Freshman Week. We decorated the corridors for Christmas and
we think it was a very good job, and we felt very proud. The Sophomore Hop was pre-
sented in the Spring, and in our eyes, we knew it was a great success. At the end of
our Sophomore year we again elected officers who would preside in our Iunior year.
President-Martin Sutphin Secretary-Ruth Mount
Vice President-Virginia Blum Treasurer-lerome Welsh
The selection of officers had remained the same but when school re-opened in the
fall, we had now moved into the place of upper classmen. My, were we proud! Many
important events filled our young life, and the day finally came when we received our
class rings. We gave a few dances of which our lunior Prom lingers in our minds the
longest. Eufemia's Music Makers were first introduced by us, and furnished us with
some dreamy music. We tripped to Philadelphia for one day, and near the close of
our Iunior year elected officers for next fall. They were:
President-Martin Sutphin Secretary-Ruth Mount
Vice President-Virginia Blum Treasurer-Betty Wincklhofer
Upon re-entering school in the fall, we were the leaders of the lower classmen.
and those who should set fine examples for everyone to follow. In that We succeeded.
But Definitely! November 21 and 22 was highlighted by our senior play, "The Moon
Makes Three," a comedy by Aurand Harris. That was indeed something of which
we were proud. Many dances were given by us, including a masquerade Hallowe'en
Dance, and a Sadie Hawkins Day Dance. Indeed, it was a Sadie Hawkins Dance.
The girls all brought the fellows they caught, and everyone came dressed as 'Daisy
Mae' and 'Little Abner.' We selected the best one and crowned her queen. Shoes
at this dance were very uncommon. And what fun we had dunking for apples, and
square dancing to some good old hill-billy music. But the one most significant to us
was our Senior Prom, presented in the Spring. April 8, 9 and 10 we Went to Wash-
ington where we visited many historical spots. What a swell time was had by all.
Then everything seemed to come and go very rapidly-Class Day-Moving Up Day
Exercises-and finally Baccalaureate and Graduation, which sums up four well spent and
happy years With all our friends at H. H. S.
Now, as we take leave of H. H. S. we are sad because we are leaving behind
friends that have become a part of our daily living, but when we think of what awaits us,
we see a gleaming light which seems to lead us forward into the future.

San Francisco is 4 hours from New York, Miami is 50 minutes from New York. A
jet-propelled flight for a week-end in Paris is indeed a common thing. The age of
supersonic speed-YES-it's 1958. New stars are on every horizon!
Broadway-Music-Action! Our first stop, after leaving the gigantic New York
City Municipal Airport, is Dick Anderson's Diamond Horseshoe, where we find Shirley
Phillips doing her usual strip tease act, and Dinger Schanck, as M. C. Alighting on
the street, we purchase a few apples and oranges on the corner of Broadway and 42nd
Street, from none other than our own Nick, who now is a prosperous fruit dealer, own-
ing a chain of fruit stores-"Centenaro's Fruit Markets."
We then walk over to the Paramount where "Eufemia and his Music Makers" are
playing and David Smith is star performer. Next they trip to Carnegie Hall where the
dignified Hirschkop is giving his concert and Alice Gifford is the next performer on
the agenda. Alice is now an acclaimed pianist, having taken her place with Chopan
and Iturbi. Our next stop is Madison Square Garden where a farm program is in prog-
ress in which Fred Nurko and Vincent Ely are participating. Vinny has made this spe-
cial trip from out West where he is prosperously established. Leo Fenity takes the high
spots. As usual, Bob Wojciechowski is there with his prize bulls, and the farmers'
wives attending are: Martha Herman, Francis Kolnoski, Ann Mellevold, Barbara Whit-
son, Bobbie Nolan, Helen Skeba and Pearl Visintini. Charles Ugi is in charge of all
photography, and is snapping the sport pictures of Iohn Walker and Curtie Williams,
who are now on the All-American Sports Teams! We just couldn't miss the act of Wo-
men Wrestlers of Williams vs. Williams-Theodocia and Helen. We are sorry to report
that Alice Mount was unable to attend. She is too busy in Florida managing her mob
of kids. After many shows we become slightly dry, and crave a little stimulant. Where
to go? Why-Tabler's Bar :S Grill of course! And here we find Lois Francis, as his flirta-
cious hostess-she still can't make up her mind.
After taking our leave we pass the Nau and Weaver Roller Skating Rink, and
right on Broadway is Adams' Beauty Salon-Dot, by the way, has become Adrian's
rival. Ray Hutton is personnel manager, and Bob Meyer is his assistant, who still
has an interest in the Adams' affairs. Still a happy foursome!
Rhoda Mach, Edith Oser and lane Farr, our career women, after their trip to Europe,
have been successful in their professions. Rhoda, our psychologist, has Eileen Cronce
and Betty George as her patients. For relaxation, Rhoda gives rhumba lessons, and is
in keen competition with Lil Iackson's Dancing School. lane, the surgeon, has Ginny
Blum as her nurse, and Edith, another of our accomplished psychologists, has em-
ployed Ethyl Baremore as her nurse. Tony Nebbia also has his office on Broadway,
which includes all the types of Vetinarian research. Broadway is infested with members
Ierome Welsh has just completed another trip to Germany, where he has met with
the famous men of the field of science. Jerry has become Vice Pres. of the American
Ruthie Mount and Shirley Crowshaw, now living in New York, are still undecided
whether or not to go to Elkton. Poor Iim and Paul are still patiently waiting-after
10 long years.
