through our junior year with other efficient officers as: vice-
president - Duke Bitler, secretary - Patty Duff, and treas-
urer -- Karl Ware. The first big event of the year was the
Harvest Hop, which was followed, a few months later, by the
junior-senior party held at Beach gym. A great responsibility
was taken on by one of our classmates when Dona Mae Burk-
hardt was selected as the new editor of the Hi-Tide. We ended
this eventful year with the realization that we were soon to

We soon chose our class officers, with the result that Ray Sarles
was elected president, Glenn Combes vice-president, Patty Duff,
secretary, Karl Ware, treasurer. The traditional semi-formal
Senior Christmas Dance was held in December. A party to
honor the boys who were leaving at mid-year was held in Janu-

Bob Dillon, secretary-treasurer, we took our place in the kinder-
garten of high school and bravely launched upon our glorious
career at Rocky River High School.
When the following September came, we anxiously looked
forward to the unexplored realm of the eighth grade. At the
beginning of the year we elected our class officers who ably led
us through our second year of junior high school: Dick Heil,
president, Glenn Combes, vice-president, Bob Dillon, secretary-
treasurer. We were both socially and athletically minded and
were well represented in scholarship, leadership, and service to
the school. We thus prepared ourselves to head the junior high
the following year.
In our freshman year we presented our first dance, the
semi-formal, "Shamrock Shuffle." Our class proved to have
its full complement of leaders, when we elected Bud Hughes,
president, Karl Ware, vice-president, Joan Wood, secretary,
and Ken Armstrong, treasurer. We ended our year successfully
with the traditiional freshman picnic.
In the fall of '41 we made our way into the tenth grade
and senior high. To head the class during the year, we elected
Whitney Slaght, president, Duke Bitler, vice-president, Mickey
