broadcast the voices of our great orators-Moore, Cun-
ningham, and Neal. To show our loyalty to Cupid, we
staged the Cupid's Twirl on February 9, and when the
gusty days of March arrived, a talented group of our
crew produced the spooky playh-4'lVlystery in the Li-
braryf' Bloody hands, spider webs, eery green lights,
blood-curdling screams mysteriously emanated from no-
where. For weeks the passengers felt icy chills up and
down their spines because of the superb acting of Gerald-
ine Chandler. Jeanne Woodward, Joyceiiningham,
Beth Newell, Roger Slocum, Eugene Cooper, Earle Comfort, Frank DeBenzo,
Bill Chapman, Larry Comfort, Dave Sahler, Allan Wise, Bill Wilson, Carmen
Caldarelli, and the mystery man-Jesse Moore.

On May 12 a southern breeze blew over the crowd as Joyce Cunningham
and Jack Brewer entertained at their cotton plantation. To conclude a very
enjoyable day, we staged the traditional Junior Prom. The starry moonlit
deck was touched by our magic wand and changed into a technicolor garden
of romance. The highlight of the evening was the crowning of Cinderella-
Jeanne Woodward, and Prince Charming-Bill Chapman. When the ship
docked for the summer, we were still glowing with precious memories of the
September, 1950-lt didnit seem possible that we had reached the last
lap of our journey. Our riotous time had made the years sweep by as quickly
as the tides. We ushered in the fall season with a gay round-and-square get-
together. What fun we had decorating our shoes, advertising our play '6Best
Foot Forwardf' Then, with the jolliness of Santa Claus, we presented our
White Christmas Dance, and when the wintry days of February approached,
we heated the atmosphere by holding a carnival in the game room.
Our last rendezvous was the Senior Prom, May 29, on top of the dance
deck. Our toes twinkled as we danced, with visions of world conquests in our
heads. There never had been-there never would be again-such a wonderful

were leaving a part of them forever on board the S.H.S. ELMIRA.

Today we have a special TV feature showing a flash-
back of that famous old movie, OUR HEARTS WERE
YOUNG AND GAY.
With the same giddiness and excitement of Emily and
Cornelia, we, the Class of ,51, embarked on the open seas
for the first time. Our hearts were fluttering as we ex-
citedly boarded the SHS. ELMIRA in September, 1947.
Being a bit bewildered at first, many of us had a hard
time getting situated on so large a ship. To steer our
class, route to success, the ship was propelled by Tug-
boat Tom and Chris-Craft Cooper, assisted by our faithful Captain-Pete
Invited by the passengers of the upper deck, we eagerly participated in
their Mardi Gras celebration by vending hot dogs from a gaily decorated
booth, but our biggest thrill of the year occurred on April 22 when we were
given the run of the ship. My, what a showing the Barber Shop Quartet made
at our Variety Show! And our memories wander back to the wonderful time
we had at our first dance-g'The Kiddie Anticsf'
Our crew continued to follow the merry footsteps of Emily and Cornelia.
When we returned from Vacation Land, our spirited group chose Captain
Chapman to guide us on our second lap of the journey. After Bill had been
mysteriously lost at sea, the position of captain was assumed by First Mate
Dailey. CLuckily, Eugene Cooper rescued marooned Bill a year later in time
to prove 4'There's nothing like a dame."l The gold supply gradually increased
after we staged the Pumpkin Ball and the Valentine Candy Raffle. Therefore,
by the time Sophomore Day arrived, we had already won recognition from
the other passengers aboard. The hold of the ship provided the right atmos-
phere for our barnyard festivity. Who can forget Jeanne Woodward and
Janice Frampton as the country-styled gals entertaining the crew with their
When we boarded the ship in 1949, our hearts still rang with merriment
since we were honored with rank of upper shipmates. Versatile Louis .laney
now took command as captain. On December 14 the public address system
