Memories 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 year. 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 Class History. 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: Angelica iangyb Goetz.... ...Joyce Geraldine lJerryJ...... .....Jenny - 1 GOTEIIOIIIOOOIIOIIICII Olilconnie '11, ne COCll.lllOlllIlIll ...Faith Xu stoneooooooooooao OlOOlJanet v Western Union Messenger... ....Stella 4 V if Stoneiill OOO! lil IOOOOIQICI oooooooo-Bob Blu' lc:saooooocoooooooooooooooBi11 Archibald lGadgetl Hoffenflugel, M.M. 2c....Dav1dv Of course we shall never forget our wonderful experience in the big city of New York. With the capable guidance of Mr. Royal and Mrs. Cox, our expectations were fulfilled with complete satisfaction. 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. Motto: T O M O R R O W I S O U R S Colors: Red and White Flower: Red Carnation 12
