Senior Class l-lisiory
On September 4, 1945, thirty-eight eager and intelligent students
began the 'grindl' at the local education "mill". Our progress was bril-
liant and rapid-by the end of the month we almost knew where to g0
and what books to take when the bells rang.
The Sophomores, however, didn't think We were so intelligent, and
to prove this opinion of theirs, they put us through the paces on a day of
torture called Initiation. We still don't know how it happened, but
through the mercies of an Unseen Hand everyone of us survived the
Then as full-fledged Freshies we maintained a strictly business atti-
tude fexcept for spitballs and thumbtacksll. When election day rolled
around we chose Miss Jane Hansleben as our sponsor. Officers were Dale
Schneider, presidentg Jim Schmulbach, vice president, Betty Schaller, sec-

Sparta Country Club.

Schoepp president, Jim Schmulbach vice president, Edgar Wirth secre-
taryg Dale Schneider treasurerg and Donald Burton reporter. Needless
to say, the boys held the upper hand at all our meetings.
The upperclassmen soon learned of our intentions to become school-
spirited leaders, we captured places on the paper stai, band, chorus, sex-
tette, and baseball and basketball teams. Of course we were happy that
we could be waitresses at the Prom instead of dishwashers, but we just
couldn't wait until the happy day we became Juniors. To celebrate the
end of our underclassmen days we held a picnic in the rain at the Water-
loo Country Club.
At last among the high and mighties, our Junior year was spotlighted
by a flawless, simmering production of "Brides to Burn" and by the ar-
rival of our coveted possessions-class rings.
