tg, ': CLASS i-iisToRv 39'
The class of l946 was introduced to high school in early September,
l942. Nearly all of the ninety-five students were unfamiliar with the
school and were confused by the many new rules and nurnerous rooms. ln
a special assembly, the class was told of the restrictions and precautions
they must face due to the war.
As the tenth year began, the war was still raging in Europe and Asia.
Due to the fact that many of the boys were needed on the farms, and that
others had steady jobs in industry, the enrollment had been reduced to
seventy-four members. ln order to raise rnoney, the class members sold
magazine subscriptions, thereby enlarging their treasury.
With a promise of victory for the Allies in the near future, the class
of '46 started its Junior year. This year we made money by selling sta-
tionery. After much discussion and several helpful suggestions from Mrs.
Jones and Miss Emmons, our class advisors, the plans for the prom were
completed. The thatched hut where the orchestra sat, the suspension
bridge, and the hanging lanterns completely carried us to south sea
islands. Before the prom a banquet was served to us by the ladies of the
Methodist Church. A week after school closed the class gave a farewell
party for Mrs. Jones at "Pakum Pond."
Because peace had come, the Senior Class anticipated a year without
all the war-time restrictions. Even though many of the class continued to
work or to join the Armed Forces, the forty-seven students left planned the
activities of the year. The first dance was a Thanksgiving Frolic. The
"School Daze", our newspaper, was originated and developed mainly by
the Senior Commercial Class. Plans for the "Pine Cone" were outlined and
the work assigned. The Alumni revived the old tradition of a banquet pre-
ceding the Prom. The Juniors, as was customary, entertained the class of
'46 at the Prom. The Senior Class Trip and Commencement closed our
most eventful high school year.
