Senior Class Poem
The time has come for us to bid farewellg
After four years we are able to tell,
That we graduated from Morrisonville High
After many a trial and many a sigh.
We all had to struggle and it was sometimes hard,
But our school day memories will never be marred
With the unpleasant things of these trying years.
Instead, we leave with our eyes full of tears,
Remembering the good times we have had:
It's things like that, which make it so sad.
As freshies we were afraid we would do something wrong
But we made out okay and it wasn't too long
Till we were sophomores, then the fun began.
One would often hear "I've learned all I can".
Yes, we thought we had learned all there was to know.
But as Juniors we found that, that wasn't so.
At last we are Seniors and happy to state
That our high school success was no outcome of fate.
The teachers were patient and pushed us along,
They helped us out when they knew we were wrong.
We are going to miss those noisy halls,
All the cheerful voices and friendly calls.
Our class. wasn't perfect but I think you'll agree,
It was certainly one of the best, By Gee !

Seniors - 1950
In September of '46,thirty-nine freshies came rushing into M.H.S.
to begin their career as high school students. Officers were chosen,
these being the results: Marian Smith, president, Bill Nicol, vice-
president, Bob Fleming, secretary-treasurerg and Mr. Schmidt, advisor.
As freshies we held our own in basketball, band, and club membership.
Frances Smothers was chosen cheerleader from ouriclass.
In '47 we again returnedto plague our teachers. Mr. Hendricks was
chosen as advisor with Bob Clower, president, Lester Curvey, vice-
presidentg and .Toan Engelhart, secretary-treasurer. Attendance this
year dropped to thirty-eight. Bob Clower and Marian Smith helped lead
our cheers. In-basket-ball tournaments both sophomore boys and girls
placed first. '
With the start of the '48 and '49 school term, forty-six Hjollyjuniors
joined the throng at M. H. S. Bill Spengler, president, Iuanita.Davidson,
vice-president, and Bob Fleming, secretary-treasurer were chosen to
guide our class with the help of Miss Hewitt. Among accomplishments
this year were the publishing of the MOHAWK, production of the play,
"Shiny Nose", sponsoring of the 1949 Prom, and supporting of many
Then came the crowning glory, at last we were "sophisticated
seniors". Our class had greatlydecreased,this year dropping to thirty-
eight. The powers of offices were vested in Amos Johnson, presidentg
Lester Curvey, vice-president, and Marian Smith, secretary-treasurer.
Mrs. Robinson and Miss Sleevar did a wonderful job as class advisors.
We had a fair share of boys on the basket ball team as you can see
by other pages of the CREST. Cheerleaders from the senior class
included Norma .Tones and Marian Smith.
Class pictures were taken October IZ at Burchetts' Studio in
Springfield. They turned out remarkable well as you'll see by our pic-
We're very proud of our work on the CREST and we hope you'll
enjoy browsing through our annual as much as we enjoyed making it for
Another of our accomplishments was the senior playpresented this
spring, with a cast of seniors with acting ability.
Thus ends the best years of our lives - those spent at M. H. S.
