£VERY high school graduate has passed over that phase of life known as Senior High
In September, 1930, members of the class of ’33 came running from various sections of the city known as McKinley, Blaine, Wilson, Emerson, and Jefferson, and assembled at Sophomore Street for a parade which was to culminate at the Avenue of Education.
When the roll was taken, it was found that there were 184 boys and 210 girls, making a total of 394, who were to start in this promenade.
After a year of steady plodding, during which milestones of geometry, Latin, American literature, and ancient history were passed, the paraders crossed the Bridge of Summer Vacation and arrived at Junior Avenue.
At this junction of the journey, Al Williams was selected as leader. Ruth Lewellyn was chosen to assist him. Jean Bemenderfer was elected to keep maps of the streets passed, and Eloisc Hutchings to be the cash carrier. On November 13, 1931, a group of promenaders, led by Rhea LaMotte and Fred Keppler, ably presented the class play — a comedy entitled "They All Want Something.” They were coached by Miss Eleanor Bly.
On April 2, 1932, the juniors decided to dance for awhile instead of march, so they held a dance in Library Lane. Then, on May 11, the juniors who had marched well and who had kept a good pace were entertained at the Hotel Roberts by the Kiwanis Club. As a last activity of the year, the treaders held the Junior-Senior Prom, at which they were hosts to members of the senior class.
By this time the parade had again begun to cross a bridge, the bridge known as The Span of Summer Skies. On the other side one could see the shiny smoothness of Senior Boulevard. It was an incline, and at the top was a huge light, across which flamed the letters GRADUATION. At the bottom of this incline the roll was taken, and it was found that there were but 353 left. Some had become tired of marching; some had trailed down the Road to Romance, which led to Marriage Square; and others, for various reasons, had left the line of rank and file.
Those who remained were promoted to the senior class. The first thing this class did was to elect Glynn Rivers, president; Fred Keppler, vice-president; Betty Greene, secretary, and George Humfeld, treasurer.
'Hit but not depressed" was the attitude of Central’s seniors as they passed over Depression Crossroads. Therefore, the Hardtimcs Dances given by the senior class were very appropriate.
About this time other senior class officers were elected. They were Dorothy Webb and Paul Roesler, prophets; Lucille DePoy as poet; and Marie Yohler, historian.
With flying colors the seniors marched across the streets of Senior Dance, Junior-Senior Prom, Banquet, Latin Banquet, and Baccalaureate. Joy was predominant.
At last the parade arrived at Commencement Tower, which is situated in the heart of town. Commencement exercises were held, and each graduate received his coveted prize — a diploma.
