As Junior High students we had fewer, but more difficult sub- jects to study. We did not remain in one room for our classes as we had previously done in the grades. We changed classes just like the high school students did. Since the Junior High was composed of both the seventh and eighth grades, the class officers were members of both grades. It was our first experience at electing officers, but we felt that those we elected were capable ones. We elected: Robert Howe of the eighth grade, pre sidentg Dixie Bodell, seventh grade, vice-president, Margaret Martin, eighth grade, Sec. and Treas.g student council, Betty Phillips of the eighth grade and Velma Lyon of the seventh grade. Elsie Boganwright joined us, but Dixie Bodell moved away so our total number remained the same as that of the previous year. During our eighth grade, we gained two new members, Peggy Walter from Kirkpatrick, and George Deickert from Patterson, New Jersey. Twenty-one eager classmates entered the ninth grade. We were all looking forward to the time when we could march up onto the platform and receive our diplomas. We were initiated in grand and glorious style by the sophomores. Joe Chamberlin, Larry Nie- derhauser, and Jesse Wells swelled our enrollment to twenty-four. We held one bake sale during the year to begin our class fortune. Due to the loss of our money, we started our sophomore year penniless. We lost Elsie Boganwright, Gene Ault, Charles Butcher, Barbara Miller, Larry Niederhauser, and Jesse Wells, and gained Cassie Coulter and Dennie Sparrow. A bake sale and ticket-selling project for the Community Club were our only money-making ven- tures. Our class rings were ordered during the second semester. The size of our class began to dwindle during our junior year. We lost five of our members, Joe Chamberlin, Cassie Coulter, Jim Detwiler, Dick Detwiler, and Ronnie Reed. Our class rings were delivered to us two weeks after school started. Money-making projects were really begun in earnest. We earned about S300 by selling candy and pop at the football and basketball games, and by selling vanilla. During the first semester, our class presented the play, "A Ready Made Family." On May 10, the juniors played host to the senior class and faculty for the annual Junior-Senior Banquet at the Greenlawn Inn, at Crestline. We began our senior year with a feeling of mingled gladness and sadness to think that this was to be our last year to work to- gether as a class. Shortly after the beginning of the year, Dorothy Osborne withdrew, leaving our class with an enrollment of four- teen. Many long hours of work were donated to selling advertise- ments and getting our yearbook ready for publication. We hope to earn enough money to finance our senior trip by printing a year- book and by presenting a Senior Class Play. At the end of this year, we will leave Caledonia High School to take our places as citizens in a far different world from that which we have already known. 10
