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 times. 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 basketball squad. 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 years. 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.
