been companion and triend with a big "hello" tor one and all.

Montrose High School welcomed us in I943
Amid the very chaos of a second World War.
But that didn't stop us, as you can well see,
We felt through perseverance we'd patriotic be.
Our leader that first year was a Silver Lake young lad,
ln name he was Jack Marrer, and boy! he wasn't bad!
As usual we "freshies" were allowed but favors few,
For sponsors always tell us, "Like upperclassmen you can't do."
So on throughout the year our group of a hundred went
Without too much disturbance and exciting an event.
As sophomores, we tried to claim a "fun priority."
But had to wait for quite some time its value to see.
But later, on December 7th, that memorable day,
The chance to stage a splendid dance did finally come our way.
With Dick Mackey as president our class was "hot with cash,"
We boasted of a treasury exceeding any class.
But one mistake we made, and others have. we fear.
We thought we needed no review forimid-terms that year.
So when test time rolled around. and with papers handed back,
We made our minds up then and there we couldn't be so slack.
A roller skating party came along for us in March
And next morning people wondered why our legs were stiff as starch
The third year found us back to work with lots of pep and force.
Our most perplexing problem, though, deciding on what course.
'Twas Gussie Blaisure, all agreed, by whom we should be led.
lt was not long before a crowd at our box social was fed.
But at last the day of days-we could order our class rings.
Soon followed, though, a letter at which all our hopes took wings.
'Shortage of materials makes all school ring orders late:
They'll come next year," read solemnly this letter of our fate.
Ah! seniors at last, and dignified, by the looks,
After that long struggle through all those pond'rous books.
We chose Janet Taylor, a mighty clever lass
For the very last year to preside over our class.
With thirty-three girls, eighteen boys had small choice,
But when meetings were held, they had their share of voice.
Class picture appointments, then our own, were soon made:
The results-oh, well-why couldn't they fade? '
And then the Senior play we found was next in assembly line:
Our class did some "Foot Loose" work that was exceedingly fine.
And now, as we leave, we thank those who through teaching
Have helped us in winning this goal we are reaching.

Whizl That flash going through study hall is surely Doris
Allen, She is one of those girls that did such a splendid job
of cheering our basketball team through their crucial moments
last year. Then, too, she was an active participant on our soft-

Hteachers' handy gal." As far as her future goes, from the
looks on her left hand, we think it's pretty well planned.

We were privileged, on various occasions, to have educational talks by members
ot our taculty, including Mr. Snyder and our own "Frankie" who related, in his humorous
and enlightening way, his experiences in the army ot Uncle Sam. We are also very
gratetul to the members ot the clergy who helped to make so many ot our meetings
The annual Father and Son Banquet held on Tuesday, March I8, was a night to re-
new a boy's tellowship with his dad, land also a night to remind us that those Home Ec

Various parties were held during the year and enjoyed by all members. And who

minster Presbyterian Church in Scranton, was the principal speaker.
The band and Mr, Taylor are again responsible tor bringing lvi. H. S. much ot its
interfscholastic honor. Supposedly weak as compared to its playing ability, the band,
nevertheless, won two tirst prizes in marching contests in Factoryville and Wyalusing.
Probably the greatest honor ever bestowed on the band was an invitation to play tor
the Northeastern District Convention ot the lviusic Educators Association. In this
meeting, held this year in Scranton, the band gave a halt hour concert betore the "big-
name" teachers ot eastern U. S. high schools, colleges, and musical organizations.

A banner year it was tor our sottball team, tor we toolc all tive games that we
played. Our girls were especially proud ot deteating New Miltord, who has given us
a Stihl light tor years and has always emerged the victor. Other schools we played
included Dimock and Broolclyn. Perhaps Coach Keller's enthusiasm was contagious,
but we teel it was more than enthusiasm. l"ler determination, her skill in coaching chal-
lenged the best in us throughout the season.
