As the leaves tell and tangled with each other, they symbolized us as
"treshies" mixing with those snooty upperclassmen and-we thought-eccem
tric teachers. From the south part ot town came our main driving power tor
the year, Don Felker. "Theres a war on," we were told, so our leader satistied
us with a riotous party at the quarry.
Buttons were poppin'l Sophomoresl Prom Snow l-lollow way person-
ality, guidance, and tun dritted into the president's chair in the torm ot Lloyd
Stevens. The tew dewdrops ot tun sprinkled on the tlower ot knowledge still
remain with us. Tho ettects ot that roller skating party are still ours. lSome
ot the atter ettects are, tooll The girls started atter the men in a different
way. We were semi-sponsors ot a box social with the juniors. That money
looked good, too. "Provided the proportions aren't too large, school and
pleasure can be mixed."
Our stamina and responsibility shocked our teachers when we returned tor
our iunioruyear. The middle man was Neil Conover. Great plans were de-
veloped tor our dance that year. The night came, and to make the scene more
beautitul, so did tons ot beautitul, clean snow. The dance? Well ....
Class rings and skating parties revolved around the usual run ot things. A
fitting grand tinale tor a tun-packed year came with Class Day--tood, Elk Lake,
and a joyous bunch ot seniors and juniors.
The year ot drastic changes! The new look! Predominated on the tair
sex and prevailed on the senior photos. The tellow who's always seen running
around somewhere was chosen to head our class. Name: Jay Warner. Li-
brary Benefit gave some ot us a chance to prove our acting ability. The popu-
larity ot the play, "Dear Ruth," was shown by the tull house at the senior play.
All these with mirth-packed activities still couldn't keep the look ot sadness Ott
our taces. As the year neared the close, we realized that tour year ot high
ichool can and should be something that has a hallowed spot in everyone's

4 Too cold for anything but work!
6 And here are the death certificates! lReport cards, if you pleasel.
IO Another chilly school day.
I2 This "long look" is beginning to become a habit lworse luckl around M. H. S.
I7 Everyone looks forward to the "big game" with New Milford.
I9 Hooray for our girls' basketball squad! We now have a championship team!

I9 Every senior looks ill-could it be the final English exam, or the fact that the

20 Ah, a beautiful day-and what a day for a fast game of hookey, or-something.
22 Hear the screech of auto tires? Don't be frightened-M. H. S. students are
discussing the "diameter of a dime." How quickly will your car stop?
28 All the band and forensic entries start for the state contest tomorrow. The
longing in their eyes is obvious-
3 No question about it, Montrose is "up there" with the best. Top honors for
