SENIOR CLASS HISTORY his cenfennial year's graduafing class joins fhe ever-growing ranks of MVUHS alumni, buf leaves, recorded in fhis yearbook, a hisfory of ifs progress. The class of '49 fraversed from fheir exalfed posifion as members of fhe highesf grade af Los Alfos, Whisman, and Highway Elemenfary fo fhal' of lowly frosh in one day. Those firsl' impressions in fhe audiforium: Mr. Crooke's clever menfion of, "Our friends of fhe upper level," in reference fo fhe balcony seafs assigned all freshmen.. .fhe casual, self-confidenl' guides who supervised a four of fhe school. . .The cheerleaders explaining fhe basic school yells and leading fhe frosh, for fhe firsf fime in "Blue and Gray"-The falks by upperclassmen on school acfiv- ifies and good sporfsmanship-The confusing class schedules for fhe coming year-Yes, Sepfember, I7, I945 was a crowded day, fhe firsf of many. During fhe firsf year many of fhe girls are in G. A. A. and several of fhe boys are ouf for lower- division sporfs. The highlighfs of fhe ear are: Their firsf high school dance, given in fheir honor by fhe sopho- mores-fhe Freshman Recepfiong fhe Freshman Class Parfyg and fhe Junior Carnival. This class, like mosl' freshman classes, is fhe mosf enfhusiasfic roofer af all school rallies and games. The sophomore year sees fhe class parficipafing in sfudenf governmenf, school and class acfivifies, and bofh lower and upper-division sporfs. This year marks fhe firsf real inferesf in dances and couples begin fo appear. Exhibifion sporfs fake on a new meaning when sfudenfs nof only cheer wildly for fhe feam buf learn fo recognize sfandard rules, poin'l' sysfems, and play- ing fechniques. I947 looms expecfanfly as fheir firsf upperclass- man yearl This is fhe year fhe class compefes wifh fhe seniors for leadership of school acfivifies. The "new-look" arrives and wifh if biffer confro- versies as fo 'l'he lengfh of fhe feminine skirf. The juniors are admiffed fo fhe "upper" classes- dramafics, public speaking, 'ournalism. ln fhis fhird year many of fhe class acquire whaf is called fhaf casual self-assured air 'lhey have so long admired. Exfra spending money and ouf-dafed cars resulf from summer parf-'lime iobs. Warm spring noon hours are spenf for fhe firsf fime on fhe cenfer lawn - couples are a frequenl' sighf. This is fhe year fhey supervise fhe Junior Carnival and, frue fo fradifion, give fhe prom for fhe graduafing class. The class of '49 has arrived - fheir Senior Yearl The ol' school doesn'f look nearly as big fo fhem now as if did in fheir freshman year even fhough if has fhe largesf enrollmenf in ifs hisfory. Class confrol of sfudenf governmenf and mosf exfra-curricular acfivifies helps fo curb fhe resfless- ness and individual independence 'lhaf are preva- lenf in fhis fourfh year. I+ is inferesfing fo nofe fhai' many of fhe girls wear engagemenf rings and fhaf an unusual number of fhe seniors are married. This is 'lhe class 'l'ha'l': founded fhe Acfivify Poinf Sysfem, helped reorganize fhe Pep Club fo increase school spirif, worked wifh fhe Cify of Mounfain View managing fhe local youfh cenfer, saw a new wing added fo fhe school, and observed plans for a new girls' gym. Though several members of fhis class are in armed services if is fhe firsf class since '40 fhal' has nof been fouched by fhe war. The firsl' four years of peace since World War ll - fhese uncerfain 'limes of reconversion and complicafed world polifics - are fheir high school years. Graduafion nears: senior cap and gown picfures, graduafion announcemenfs and personalized cards, Senior play pracfice, Senior Day, Memory Book, boning up for English A exams, submiffing college applicafions, Senior Ball, frying on caps and gowns for size, fhaf lasf week of parfies, pracficing fhe graduafion march. The big nighf arrives and fhe sfory of 'l-he class of '49 ends - ends? No, if doesn'f end wifh fhe presenfafion of fhose covefed diplomas! These four years are nof merely a course of sfudy fo be com- plefedg fhey are a preparafion for fhe fufure. The class enfered Mounfain View Union High School as a group of self-conscious children: in fhe four years fhey have learned sporfsmanship and ease in social acfivifies. Of greafesf imporfance are fhe courses of sfudy offered fo 'lhe class - pracfical knowledge: general mafh, homemaking, personal adiusfmenf: vocafional preparafions: wood work, aufo mechanics, book- keeping: foundafion for fufure educafion: English A, frigonomefry, and physics. These have been four busy years crowded wifh recreafional acfivifies, sfudy, and individual adiusf- menf fo adulfhood. Wifh graduafion fhe sfory of fhe class as a unif ends buf nol' fhe whole sfory of fhe class of '49. When fhe frades learned in high school are applied fo provide securify for fhe alumni - when a few of fhose who wenf on fo higher educafion refurn fo fhe alma mafer fo feach - when 'lhe class couples enroll fheir children al' MVUHS - fhen fhe sfory of fhe class of '49 will have ended, buf fhe hisfoig' of a fufure graduafing class will have been s'l'ar'l'e . - Dolores Reed SE IGRS
