Do you remember when, after many wonderful experiences in Junior High, the Class of
'51 reached the promised land of High School? That wonderful first year was one we shall
always remember. We struggled at first under the deluge of x's and y's of algebra and the
puella and puer of Latin. But we began to like the change from just learning the 3 R's,
for now we were upperclassmen. My, were we proud!
With the help of our advisor, Mr. Thomas,and Janet's leadership we sponsored a gay
and colorful carnival for the enjoyment of all the 'kiddles'. From thiS venture we made
our very first deposit towards our Senior trip which we already anxiously awaited. Then
too, our not-too-skillful hands produced some brilliant drapes for our precious Frosh home-
room. These still remain as evidence of our school spirit and enthusiam in this--our first
Do you remember when we, as Sophomores under the guidance of Mr. Meekins and David,
added to our memories by having a Spring dance and just plain fun? We didn't do much after
this in the way of sponsoring activites, but we gay and carefree Sophomores were ever pre-
sent at all school activities. Besides merrymaklng we devoted much of our time to the tri-
angles and parallelograms of geometrmthe.4L4,cr shorthand and the oui and je vale bien of
le francais. Thus, we completed our Sophomore year, a more sociable and educated class,
prepared to meet the new adventures which awaited us.
Do you remember when we finally received our much-prided class rings? We were Juniors
then and a step closer to our final year. Mrs. Ripp, our advison and Jack,our President
guided us in sponsoring activities in honor of the Senior Class of '50, such as selling
Senior Play tickets, waiting on tables, and buying their corsages for the Alumni Banquet.
The biggest event of this year was the traditional Senior Ball. Dancing to the music of
the 'Top Hats', the crowning of the King and Queen and special decorations made this one of
our most cherished memories.
Do you remember when we as Seniors pulled together in our last minute efforts to earn
money for our Senior trip? The publishing of the 'Portal' under the competent supervision
of Miss LaFaro highlighted these efforts. The 8911182 of candv at basketball games, spon-
soring dances, having bake sales, and selling magazine subscr1pt1ons,d1r9cted capably
by MT- Royal and 383912, again our President, have all been memorable chapters ln our Senior
Also, our production of 'Act Your Age' with its uproarious situations and sparkling
dialogue scored a brilliant hit. The cast under the directlon or Mr. Betlem did an
excellent job in portraying the characters of this hilarious comedy. It consisted of:

Of course we shall never forget our wonderful experience in the big city of New York.

Now we have reached the completion or our preliminarytraining of life. It is fitting
then to thank all who have made it possible for us to arrive at this goal--our graduation.
And as we turn to face the future we will try to prove successful in their eyes and ln the
eyes of the world.
