SENIOR CLASS HISTCRY
'Twas back in the fall of '35 that 140 green little
freshmen strolled through the portals of L. H. S. to
begin their four years of industrious labor. At this
point the class of '40 took root and grew into the fine
Cedar which is now about to leave its fond memories
behind and go to join the Alumni forest.
During this early stage of our rooting, some of us
felt we were missing the glory and sunlight because
we were overshadowed by the larger trees. We did,
however, make ourselves heard from by making the
rafters of the gym ring with our joyous shouts when
we gave our freshman party. Frank Donaldson, our
president, made it possible for us to spend the evening
at a circus. Clowns, strong men and a band composed
of combs, pans, brooms and a variety of kitchen utensils
were featured during the evening. Miss Ruth Brook'
shire and Mr. Walter Tyre, our frosh sponsors, gave
us poor saplings a steady hand during these trying
At the start of the second year, however, we became
more accustomed to our surroundings, and to our
delight saw our branches spreading. It was in this year
that we began to demand recognition in our fair instif
tution of learning by having representatives in the
various activity curriculum. After the members of our
group had assembled for this period of our growth,
prospects were viewed for the presiding officers. Jack
Alexander was elected to preside with john johnson,
assistant and Betty Burgess had contorl of the pocket'
book. Some of our branches even entered the varsity
Juniors! Cree, we felt proud, now we were able to
assert our rights of upperclassmen-and we did! Our
class had the privilege of sponsoring the first all school
mixer of the year. Following this on October 14, our
class party was held. Members of our group presented
a skit entitled "Paging Mr. Tweedy" as a portion of
the program, and the remainder of the evening was
spent in dancing the light fantastic. We further proved
our capacity for doing big things when we presented
our Junior class play,e"The Boomerang." Then on
April 21 we entertained the seniors with the annual
reception at eight o'clock. The lads and lassies donned
their best formal attire and boarded the good ship
S. S. junior for their magic trip to the realm of King
Neptune. The guests were met at the gang plank by
the ship's officers, Admiral julia Morton, Captain
Ritchie Coons and First Mate Frank Donaldson. A
contest was conducted to determine the junior girl who
was to preside over this affair as the majestic queen.
Virginia Hart was the victor and ascended her throne
like a true member of the royal family. Her attendants
for her one night of ruling were Evelyn Salts and Alada
Witt. Chairmen for the big event were: Thelma
Smiley, program, Betty Burgess, invitations, Evelyn
Salts, decorations, Nancy Brewer, refreshments, Virf
ginia Hart, dance, julia Morton, reception, and Keith
Sample had charge of the work committee. .Chief hor-
ticulturer for this hopeful group was Mr. Myron Tauer.
The fourth year of growing found our branches
fully entwined and mingled in every activity. Now
we were the tall and stately protectors of the newly'
planted saplings. Cur long green branches acted as
the guiding force to spur them on to greater heights.
Fall brought to the seniors thoughts of harvest time
and the gathering of food. This theme was carried
out at the senior party held in October. Because of
the great number of trees in our grove, we were forced
to hold this .gala affair in the Methodist Church rather
than the home economics room as done in previous
Election year and our minds were filled with civic
problems. We felt very proud when we stepped into
the Capitol-our gym-as Congressmen, on Home'
coming day. When we adjourned, Bill Randsdall had
been elected president of the Alumni association in a
mock election. That night the masses swayed with the
swinging rhythm of Bye Smart and his Ceremic Am'
bassadors at the smart L. H. S. night club.
We were the center of attraction toward the end
of our growing period. Class night and Baccalaureate
convinced everyone that our senior sponsors, Mrs.
Doris Langjahr and Mr. Glenn Neeves, had done ad'
mirable work in cultivating and putting the iinal touch
on us. Cooperating with our sponsors were our off
iicers, Frank Donaldson, president, Ritchie Coons, vicef
president, and Betty Burgess, secretaryftreasurer.
We, in our caps and gowns on Commencement day,
proved to the world that we were now fully developed
Cedars ready to take our respective places in the ever'
growing Alumni forest.
