THREE YEARS' DREAM
Last night A-9's dreamed. As in the experience of many
a dreamer the visions began with the day's excitement, and
drifted back through the years.
They relived the thrill of yesterday's graduation-pen
formed for parents and friends in the afternoon-and the
morning rehearsal for the B-9's to see and anticipate their
own program one semester away.
The dream shifted back to the Awards Assembly of
January 23, with its recognition of all worthy service, and
to the Installation of January 13, when the Class of Winter
'50 turned over to new officers-the stewardship of the
school. And back further still to the elections of January
6-to the visits of counselors from Dorsey, from Los Angeles,
from Polytechnic high schools, all with their plans, their
maps of the future for A-9's of today.
They saw themselves again in the stirring moments of
the A-9-B-9 football game of December 14-the exciting
score, 6-2. They saw themselves in the gaiety of their A-9
Tea Dance, the bright clothes, the guests, the conference,
and the joyous time in the gym afterwards.
They remembered the officers they had chosen to lead
their class in November, and remembered them with pride,
Marty Berman, their president, Marion Megrdichian, their
vice-president, and Dorothy Duke, their secretary and treas-
urer. They thought of the early class meetings and the first
awareness of their A-9 status.

A-9 STEERING COMMITTEE
Marion Megrdichian, Larry Pearsall, Mrs. Edith Shreve, A-9 Counselor:
Frances Sotcher, and Althea Reames.
Girls recollected with tenderness the B-7's they had
entertained at their Big and Little Sister party. Boys re-
called the Big Nine Little Seven party, and what it meant to
the little newcomers.
As the dream went on, it focused on the A-9 Faculty
game, coed this term on both sides of the net, and they
thought a little ruefully of losing two out of three to their
The recollection of the Girls' Installation drifted across
their memories with its dignity and quietly meaningful cere-
mony-and the boys thought of their companion assembly,
the thrilling story of the Dons.
As the magic carpet sailed backwards to the spring,
landmarks were farther apart-but there was that day
where their student body leaders took their oath of office,
and the hard fought baseball game with the A-9's who
preceded them-and won the top score.
The subconscious sailed back a little faster. There were
glimpses of the big moments in the A-8-their first upper
division dance and assemblies. In the B-8 they recalled
making their first subject choices, and sharing in student
government, with their lower division representatives.
There was the time when they shed their badge of new-
ness in the A-7 and farthest back of all the B-7 tours, the
B-7 Tea, and all the puzzling initiation it took to become
used to a strange, exciting new school.
At this point they turned restlessly in their sleep and
awoke once more to the present-to realize that the three
good years were past-and to wonder what lay ahead
for them in the three years to come.
