It was way back in 1931 that thirty-seven little hopefuls hoisted the home anchor and
ventured out upon the sea of learning to enter "boot training" under the command' of Miss
Boyem. Those were the happy days when we were only on part-time duty and could take
naps at home instead of at school, fOrla Irwin, please observej.
The next year, discovering that life in the service wasn't so bad after all, we decided
to continue our training a while longer. Chief Warrant officers, Watson and Latta, took us
in hand. VVhat a shock it was, however, when we found out about those things called "tests",
something new in our young! lives. Remember the time three-fourths of us, gave the wrong
answer to the question "Does it snow in Januaryni
In second grade we started drawing Indian pictures and painting pottery. Billy Town-
send directed the rhythm band of twenty-seven pieces.
This was the year, too, that Fred Hole got up early every morning to feed hay and
water. to a certain fourth-grader's wooden hobby horse!
Third grade found us in Captain Kennedy's room, racing to see who could write to
one hundred the fastest. Hughes always won, darn it.---There was quite a bit of jealousy
between the kids who had to drink milk and those whose parents let them have orange
juice--. Also, everybody who was anybody played "The Old Witch".
in 1935 we graduated. to the fourth grade and the main floor. Nadine started com-
ing to town school and simply bewitched all the boys with her blonde hair, much to every
other girl's chagrin!
Fifth grade: Everybody got pretty much banged up this year when the girls kept hit-
ting their heads on the cement when they played on the bars and the boys were kept after
school for putting rocks in their snowballs. It wasn't a pleasant day when Jerry and Pat got
taken off the citizenship roll for passing notes. QMy, my, even thenlj
Reinember April Fool's Day in sixth grade when little "Innocence" Kessler got us to
put a tack on Miss Burkhead's chair? But she was sorry when we all had to stay after
school! April Fool ! ! I
The girls played jacks and roller-skated like mad all spring. The boys wore their
knuckles to the bone in marble tournaments.
Yippee-seventh grade and junior High. We could always count on "Gus" Strohmeier
fand still canj to provide entertainment during all dull moments, especially in study hall.
But Mr. Indvik seemed to take him seriously and "Gus" had ia butch when Indvik finished
In eighth grade we had already gained the reputation of being the worst-behaved
class in school. Not bad after only one year of Junior High. Mathematics was' every girl's
favorite subject. The reason! Mr. Miner! He surely got a lot of Valentines that year.
In ninth grade we were joined by our country friends. "Blondie" really stepped in
and made herself at home with our upperclassmen.
We didn't act as if we quite knew it all that year because the Senior High students
seemed to look down on us little "Freshies". Were we fresh! just inquisitive, I guess.
World History in tenth grade wasn't so bad, but, oh, those notes that Mr. Mast enjoy-
ed reading. It was in this year that we had trouble with our English-understand it yet,
No one shall ever forget those roof-raising arguments in Mrs. McI..ean's room, the
eleventh year. How Ted and james would mix it up. Holmberg, how are we to know just
which way your brain will work?
The Rainbow Canteen furnished -a grand evening's entertainment for the juniors and
Seniors on May 7.
The Seniors didn't have such good results when they decided to start a fued and took
jennett, Prendergast, and Allem for a ride-fno two-way joy ride eitherj. It was then
that Admiral Ehrhardt decided such fueds should stop.
The end of 'our journey has finally been reached after traveling the thirteen seas
through all calms and storms. For those who were able to continue with us it means "so
long", but welll not soon forget S. C. High. We want to wish the best of luck to all, es-
pecially to 'those who will soon join Uncle Sam and travel to more distant parts. We also
extend to thosemembers who are already in the service our best wishes.
So end thirteen major battles on the field of learning. May we be victorious in all
