Peshastin. The high school and grade school were comp
bined in those days and the graduates received their
diplomas at the grade school graduation night. In this
first class we find three: Dorothy Wright Bowen, Geo-
rge French and Clam Spanger. Dorothy was the valedic-
torian and George was salutatorian. Mr. Walker was the
superintendent and a man from Seattle was the speaker.
In 1925 the high school was not accredited but the
year following with the arrival of a new superintendent,
Mr. Eminger, the school was transferred to anaccredited
September of 1931 found the high school students in
a new building. However as the building was not yet
completed by the beginning of the school year the four
high school classes spent their first three weeks of
school in the Methodist church.
Those who spent that first three weeks of school in
there will remember the day they had to move out for a
funeral. Very happy that building was, at last complet-
ed, the students again changed their school quarters to
inhabit at last the new school house that awaited them.
Shiny, bright floors, airy rooms and a new atmosphere
at last wholly their own became almost like unto objects
of adoration or worship. I
Very proud of the distinction of being the first
class to graduate from the new school house the Seniors
were somewhat loath to leave, and for once perhaps, the
freshies, who are usually more Wslam edu than anything
else were envied for having three more years to com-

annual if it hadn't been for the cooperation of the an-
nual staff? Well, that cooperation was present so you

nAmong the activities in which their cooperative
support and leadership has been especially manifest may
be mentioned the Japanese fantasy, The Willow Tree, the
operetta, And It Ruined, which was one of the first
musieales in recent years. The enlargement of the an-
nual to include feature sections, insert pages and
block printing them by hand is another contribution of
this class. The sponsorship of the minor awards plan,
the sending of delegates to the conference at W.S.C.
the clean-up day activities are also noteworthy.

ever the members of the Class of 1955 undertake in fu-

Did you ever wonder much what kind of a history
P.H.S. had? Whether you have or not certain ones on
the staff have done some investigating and this is what
Delving around in those back years we've found a
little that may be interesting to those who would care
to know. Close around the year 1907 the first high
school was introduced. For some years there were only
the first two grades--Freshman and Scphomore.and those
who cared to go on and graduate were necessitated to go
to Dryden, Leavenworth, Cashmere or other towns to fin-
ish their higher education.
The year 1925 saw the first class graduate in

Have you ever gotten to the end of a school year
and then stopped to think over what had happened during
the last nine months? One person did--just ramblings
--but here is:
0How characteristic of certain students are the
decorated black boards covered with those dapper looking
men and those good looking girls that have an abun-
dance of curly hair! School books full of the same
pieces of art of more interest than the dry material in-
WHave you ever seen eight or nine girls crowded
about an under-sized mirror trying to put on lipstick
straight and to comb their hair! If you haven't you've

And then the picnic! What fun! What eats! A
grand finale to school!
No more school, no more books,
No more teachers dirty looks!
