Jr. - Sr. Prom Of '49
All juniors had been busily working as the week of May 20th rolled
around. Yes, the junior class was to entertain the seniors at the annual
banquet and prom.
The theme chosen this year was "The Forty Niners" honoring the
seniors. Appropriate invitations and place cards were presented to
The beautiful Camellia Room in the Hotel Frisina at Taylorville
was the scene of the banquet. The program consisting of the following
was presented after the banquet!
Star Dust . . ...... . . . . . . Bob Clower
Cheri-Cheri-Bin ...... . . . . . . Melvin Rich
Red Roses for a Blue Lady . . . . Loren Arkebauer
Old Man River .................. Edward Jones
Careless Hands and The Happy Farmer . Ramona Bilyeu
Alice June Beaty, Joyce Reynolds, Marian Smith
Master of Ceremonies ........... Frank Hornbeck
Following the banquet and program, dance music was furnished by
Chaw Mank's Orchestra in the High School gymnasiunn. The theme of
the prom was carried out in the decorating of the gym also. Dance
programs were issued. '
The ceiling of the gym was covered to give the effect of a large
wagon wheel. One corner was occupied by a covered wagon enclosed by
a rail fence. The orchestra was seated in the other corner at the same
end of the gyrn.
The stage was transformed into a pretty setting for the crowning of
the queen. There were blue and white dec o r ations with baskets of
peonies adding to the splendor.
The name of the queen was revealed by the retiring queen, Clara
Richter, as she crowned Miss Pauline McLean queen of the 1949 prom.
The members of the queen's court included: Ramona Bilyeu, Juanita
Davidson, Gloria Taylor, and Marian Smith. During the ceremony the
queen was presented with a dozen red roses and a cosmetic bag by the
junior class. The next dance was honoring the new queen, her attendants,
and last year's queen. The g r and march brought the c e r e monie s
honoring the queen to a close.
The rest of the evening consisted of dancing and refreshments.

Here it is! The annual you have patiently awaited is now in your
hands. The Crest staff hope you enjoy reading and browsing through
the year book.
Much of the credit for the annual goes to Miss Sleevar, our sponsor
and commercial teacher, who spent many hours advising and working with
As far as the financial status is concerned all the seniors worked
hard to make the quota. Ioan Engelhart and Carolyn Curvey really
showed some salesmanship during the magazine drive with Joan's sales
topping S 125 and Carolyn's total subscriptions were next high. Richard
Bails, Dwight Ebe, and Amos Johnson also did some selling of a different
nature. They sold advertising to the business firms.
Money-making, however, was not the only thing to be done. Often,
as you advanced toward the school house you would hear these words,
"Watch the birdie". Many of the pictures are due to the efforts of the
camera staff. Perhaps you would see a girl flying down the hall with a
handful of money after she had had a conference with the ad-sellers.
That was our business manager. Or maybe you would venture into the
commercial room and find a group of feverishly working seniors-the
sports editor, the art editors, the activities editor, class editor, will
and prophecy editor, editor-in-chief, or assistant editor.
The staff is as follows:

And that is the tale of this book and a few of the people who worked
to give it to you.
