On lanuary 5, l945, while en route to school, he was fatally injured in an automobile accident. l All who knew him remember him as a diligent stu- dent, likeable person, and promising athlete. 50 Class History Dear Diary: 7th Grade 1942-43 Our class enrolled as a body of 168 to begin its career at Muhlenberg. We enlarged our friendship circles and soon grew acquainted with this entirely new routine. The unfamiliar classes and periods soon became a part of our regular school life. 8th Grade 1943-44 Quite a few eighth graders participated in the operetta, "White Gypsy," We regret that nothing more of importance happened in this year, but we still look back with pride on this stepping stone in our education, lean Fredericks and Richard Boyer were selected the outstanding girl and boy of the class. 9th Grade 1944-45 We welcomed the new non-resident members which increased our class total of 189. ln this year we chose our courses to prepare more specifically for our future careers. Dolores Parker and Richard Boyer received awards for being outstanding students. 10th Grade 1945-45 We were proud to be the first class to hold a "Sopl'1 Hop" and Worked hard to make it a success, We showed signs of being a class to stick together and go after the things we wanted. This year football was inaugurated. 9. Spring Concert was held in which many members of our class took part, Doris Bright and Richard Boyer received the outstanding girl and boy awards for tenth grade. llth Grade 1946-47 Our class was officially organized and officers were elected: President, Richard Boyer, Vice-President, Richard Owens, Secretary, Mary Kroyer, Treasurer, Theodor Liss. The class colors of cardinal red and steel gray, the flowers of red roses and white carnations, and the hats and pins were trademarks of our junior year. Many of the eleventh graders took part in the operetta, "Q Waltz Dream," and the annual junior play for this year was "Fi Date With ludyf' The main event of the year was the prom which was held on May 17. The gym was cleverly decorated as a cafe scene. Doris Bright and Theodor Liss were chosen the outstanding students of our class. Five members were in- ducted into the National Honor Society. 12th Grade 1947-48 Our last farewell to Muhlenberg brings us memories of the many happenings in our senior year. Class meetings noted the election of the same officials as the previous year, and the discussions of the yearbook, prom, and class trip were matters for debate. We came into proud possession of our class rings. Our class play, "Fllmost Summer," was held in November. May Day found Doris Weisser crowned as queen. Richard Owens was elected the first president of the newly organized Student Council. Our last year was high- lighted by the Senior Prom, our class trip, and commencement exercises-the time at which we bade good- by and good luck to the future graduates and the faculty who guided our footsteps through the years, We received our diplomas and produced a fine yearbook, and now that the work is done, we are more nearly ready to take our places in the world.
