.. . 4. ..., SENIOR CLASS HISTORY-1952 Twelve years ago the class of 1952 began their search for knowledge. The first few days were difficult but soon we lost our shyness and became fast friends. Of this group fourteen have been classmates throughout their school life. They are: Edward Farabaugh, James Haines, Robert Cfarl-son, Bruce Loo-mis, Robert Ol-lilfa, Marilyn Jerome, Barbara Ames, How- ard Brooks, Edward Larko, Joanne Ollila, Allan Thomas, Gaylord Rogers, James Leyman, and William Kemmer. Among the kind and thoughtful teachers who have helped us along the path of learning one of the most memorable was Mrs. Clarence Bidlack. Even now we hear some of our class- mates still boasting about the American flag they made under her supervision. Soon we found the school years passing, never to forget our grade school plays. The first week in the high school building was try- ing because finding our way to classrooms was very new to seventh graders. Through the help of our teachers we were quickly straightened out. In our freshman year we sincerely wel- comed Robert Connolly, Thomas Koskinen, Ar- thur Rebovich, Kaye Archibald, Patricia Hay- ford, JoAnn Tisch, Robert Bailes, and Henrietta Kirkland from Lenox. As our community began to grow, we acquired many new students in our twelve years. They are Jo Ann Stevens, Beverly Stoll, Lynn Smith, Betty Tietz, Clara Stevens, David Wilson, Edward Clifton, Norman Taylor, Taft Webb, Beverly Overly, Norman Larson, Sandra Simpson, James Edgar, Donald Benjamin, Carole Smith, Clara Lillie, and Ka-th-erine Mc- Mannes. We were initiated into the many organiz- ations as "freshies." We certainly enjoyed the wide choice of extra-curricular activities in which we have been able to participate. In our sophomore year we were eligible to join the high school chorus. Of course we will all remember the band and chorus trip to Springfield where we entered the state con- tests. As juniors we took on the great responsi- bility of earning money for the Junior-Senior Prom which was held at the Unionville Tavern on May 18. Our class officers, who were President, Ed- ward Farabaughg Vice President, Clara Lillie, Secretary, Clara Stevens, Treasurer, David Wil- son, should receive a great deal of the credit for our success in our eleventh school year. Also during this year we put on our first play 'tTatttletale" directed by Miss Mary Britt. In our final ye-ar at Jefferson High we elect- ed Edward Farabaugh as our president, James Haines as vice-president, and Carole Smith as secretary-treasurer. Many of our classmates have been active in band, chorus, National Honor Society, Y-Teens, G. I, A., Athletic Association, and all the vari- ous sport aotivities. As we remember all the h-appy days we have had, we would like to express our grati- tude to the teachers and friends who have guided us, and we hope that we will make you proud of us in the future. Senior Clsss Song-1952 VERSE Soon it will be May again Then we'll graduate Good-bye teachers one and all We're offf to meet our fate. CHORUS Farewell to you students of dear Jeff High We tip our hats as we tell you gofod-bye Our memories will linger on And even though that we are gone You'1l always be near to our hearts. We're out to conquer the worlds yet unknow-n And try to reap seeds that we have sown The time draws near when we must leave you here So now we'll say farewell to you. PAGE FIFTY-SIX -y-as

L........L.., m,,, , SENIOR CLASS PROPI-IECY-1952 I think that is my old friend Barbara Ames standing over by the rail. It's been fifteen years since I have seen her, but she hasn't changed much, Now she has turned around and is coming in my direction. "Hello, Barbara. Do you remember me?" "Yes, of course. You're Marilyn Jerome. While I was standing over by the rail, your face kept running through my mind, but I couldn't place you. Trhen all at once I remem- bered who you were. I had heard that you were touring Europe, but I never thought we would see each other." i'Yes, I'm headed back to the United States now. You know piano playing gets sont of tiresome without a vacation once in a while. By the way, what were you doing in Europe?" HI was in Paris completing an assignment for Ed Farabaumgh, who is our Ambassador to France. I am his private secretary now, and due to illness he sent me to Paris to finish his job? "Say, did you know thaft the captain of this ship is Norman Taylor? He never could resist the urge to be on a boatf' "Yes, and this morning I was served break- fast by Howard Brooks. It certainly is funny how you meet your old friends." t'Just before I left the States, I went to visit Ed Larko and his wife, the former Jo- Ann Tisch, Do you know that they have five boys? I told Jo that all five of them would be athletes if they followed in their mother's and father's footsteps." "Look! Here comes JoAnn Stevens. Must be she's one of the nurses on this ship. She would probably be able to tell us about some more of our classmates." "Hello, JoAnn. We have been talking about our old classmates and thought maybe you would like to sit down and visit with us for a while." "I'd love to. It's wonderful seeing you girls again." "JoAnn, do you know where Bev Stoll is now?" 5"Yes, she married Gerald Berrier and they live on a large farm. They have three little girls. Henrieltta Kirkland is the nursemaid for their daughters. You remember my cousin Clara Stevens don't you? She is a stewardess on Norm Larson's 'See-it-in-an-Hour' Airlines. Golly! I didn't realize how late it was. I must go on duty now. It's been nice talking with you and I hope that I will see you both again soon. Good-bye!" "Lt's getting rather chilly out here. Let's go in, buy a newspaper, and have a cup of coffee." ?Here's the New York Times, Isn't Dave Wilson the editor of that paper?" "Yes, and there's an article by Pat Hayford on the New York Symphony Orchestra. Well, for heavens sake! Bruce Loomis is the con- ductor and Robert Ollila is his solo clarinet player. Those two boys were always good friends in school." "Let's see what they have new in movies in the U. S. What's this! Sandy Simpson, the 'Sophie Tucker of 1967,' is appearing in per- son at the RKO Theater. The cowboy hit of the year is 'Tweedlin' Tweedler' with Hopalong Connolly. I always knew that Bob would make a good cowboy," "While I was in Paris I received a letter from Betty Tietz. She and Gaylord Rodgers are a famous roller skating team now. In it was a clipping about the appointment of Ed Clif-ton as President of the University of Penn- sylvania. On his staff are Clara Lillie, Pro- fessor of Chemistry, and Bob Carlson, head football coach." 'tHave you heard about the building Jim Haines is designing? It's to be the largest building in the world and is to be named in honor of him." "No, I hadn't. Did you know that Jim Edgar and Taft Webb are ministers? Margaret Holloway is soon to tour the United States tell- ing of her experiences as a missionary in Africa." "Last summer while visiting my cousin at St. Lukes Hospital in Cleveland, I saw Joanne Ollila Sunbury and Carole Smith who are nurses there." t'Howard told me this morning that B-ob Bailes is running the largest chain grocery store in the oounvtry and Katherine M'cMannes is his private secretary, Kaye Archibald is the man- ager of his Jefferson store. The dairy products sold in all of Bob's stores come from the K 81 K D'airy Farm which is operated by Bill Kemmer and To-m Koskinenf' HI saw that the London Daily ran a series of features on the Rebovich Uranium Plant. Don Benjamin is head personnel manager. Also there was a plicture of Jim Leyman "the dar- ingest daredevil driver in the world." His cars are furnished by Allan Thomas' Pontialc Sales and Service Garage." "Oh! Look at the advertisement on the back of tlhis menu! It says 'Smith and Overly, Hair- dressers? Why that must be Lynn and Beverly. What a coincidence! Let's have them fix our hair and we can visit with them while they are working." I can say only one thing in conclusion. That class of 1952 certainly has reached the top rung on the ladder of success. I'm sure such amaz- ing progress will continue througfh the years to come. PAGE FIFTY-EIGHT
