SOUTHSIDlE HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
Don't leave the IQ28 Senior Circus without a souvenir. Take home a happy
remembrance with you. It doesn't cost a thing but transportation.
'Do yoi remember the Senior Prom when Ross Hobler, Dick Cullen, and
Pete McLaughlin advertised for girls? And the Frosh Hop when "Hunky"
Sciieid hrst tried to dance?
Ur maybe you recall the Girls' Get-Together Basketball Banquet, where
the toast mistress referred to this yearis victorious interclass team, then juniors,
as the "Ladies' Aid Society" because they gave all their games to their opponents.
Then again, there are the good old days when we came to a new white
Southside as new green freshmen. Wasn't it great to have those workmen do
tricks for us on their scaffold right outside the window where we could watch
them while we endured our most hated classes? .
Or perhaps you remember the day Margaret Powers tainted in Mr.
Tschudy's biology class. VVasn't that a sensation?
And didn't you feel a thrill when you got your first Senior autograph in
your brand new leather-bound year book? '
The Hag raising ceremony with the Hag stopped at half mast so a picture of
it could be taken is unforgettable, too.
And do you remember our first orchestra conducted by Chuckie Adams
before Mr. Bement took charge?
What about the clubs that used to be G. C. C., and the French Club, the
Latin Club, the Chemistry Club?
Then there was the day in assembly when our junior class president, George
Vetter, received the official gavel from Don Butters, graduating senior class
Do you recall the rainy Arbor Day that we were excused from school to
plant trees, being furnished sandwiches and cocoa by the Parent-Teachers'
Or were you in gym the day Eileen McCarthy lost her balance and fell
down on Sarah Miller?
Perhaps you remember Marie Dettmer and her 'cello. She would have
graduated with our class this year if she were still here.
Walt Barnum was another kid we used to know. Do you recall those first
Latin classes with Miss Brookfield in 207 Where the art room is now?

The Senior Plug---'QTIQQ Charm School"
Our Senior preformance of April 27 and 28, 'The Charm School," was by far one of
our best, considering it both from a financial and artistic standpoint. Mrs. VVoolf very ably
filled the ofhce of our ring leader for this production.
The inside facts of certain deep, dark secrets were disclosed when the play was produced.
VVe found that Ross Hobler, as 'lAustin Bevans," aspired to pedagogy. Margaret Powers, as
"Elise Benedottif' through her loving powers, ruined a perfectly good girls' boarding school.
Margaret O'Connor, alias Wfheodosia Curtis," believed in the use of smelling salts. Frederick
Connelly, '4David MacKenzie," was possessed of a legal mind. Juanita Dunn, "Miss Hays," did
not like to have girls educated to be charming. Harry Dunn, also known as "Homer johns,"
however, liked charming girls. HSally Boyd," whom we know as Laura Shipe, needed to have
her mind "forcibly fed meat." i'.Ti1n" and 'Tim Simpkinsf' Elliott Enyedy and Gordon Mc-
Laughlin, wanted to marry an heiress. :'George Boydf, more often known as George Vetter,
thought he knew a love letter when he saw it. NMuriel Doughty," alias Ellen Cahill, believed
in being loyal to her school. Sarah Miller, or "Ethel Spelvin," wanted a different man every
night, while Mary Louise Morse, as "Alix Mercier," liked men very much, too. Lillian Quandt,
playing "Lillian Stafford," was pleased that dancing was taught in school, and "Madge Kent,"
Doris Russell, couldn't see the use of having dances without boys. Marion Graham, "Dotsie,',
was always in the way.
"Live and learn," says the old adage. Elle have learned much from living through this

And how about that Senior meeting when Georgie Vetter said the same thing
Ellen did and told us it was his own opinion?
And do you remember the day Miss 1-laupt was found in 210 after school
playing 'Two Black Crowsn?
Or the day Leonard Whitiiey brought an armful of pretzels into second
period of study? '
Nlfhere you in class the day a certain senior asked where the town Soviet,
Or t-he day Fred Connelly declared that he had always wondered what the
joke was in "Two Black Crows" when Ohio was spelled capital O-H-N?
If you have seen all our souvenirs, take some home to the family. The
children will like them.
