The 1951 edition of the TORCH brings to you in review
the school year that is closing, depicting many of the
personalities and events of the year. My wish is that it

At the beglnning of this school year we sen1ors were feeling
very smb1t1ous and eager for an annual After much conslderatlon
it was agreed that the sen1or class, under the sponsorshlp of Hr
l.cGee, would put out the yearbook
We started out in high spuits, but soon found we were pretty
green What would we do flrst? Who would tell us how to set up
the pages? Well, we don't know howwe did it, but, altho late in
the year, we did get started and worked like Trojans for the next
four months Marry nights we lay awake worrying about the pages
that were not yet finished
"Where are those p1ctures9" "That 1sn't on stralghtl' We heard
these words so often that we began to hear them :Ln our sleep
Sometimes when we wanted to go to an assembly we would say m-
stead, "We'd better work on the armual " Mrs Slllth was always
willing to oversee the typing, and Mr McGee came :Ln from shop to
set up pages and help with uvthirzg that needed to be done.We are
greatly indebted to the entire faculty for their suggestions and
willingness to help us with THE TORCH Two of our Saturdays,
well ss all of our spare ti.m,were spent at school working on it
Subtraeting work from fun, we came out ahead and are very glad we
had the chance to put out this annual. It is the first in seven
years, but we hope that it wL11 not be the last. If any Juniors
heard us say anything that would discourage them, we take it all
back. By way of advice from this year's staff, we suggest that
you learn to respect the opinions of others before you attempt an

Quill and Scroll, the International Honorary Society for
High School Journalists, has as its purpose the rewarding
of individual efforts in the field of journalism, as exem-
plified by their work on the staff of high school papers,
yearbooks, or creative writing. It was organized on April
10, 1926 to help raise the standards of students in the
field of jounalism and allied fields. International in
scope, the Society is connected with no school or univer-
sity. Membership is secured only through a local chapter.
Strafford High School was granted a charter on October 10,
19h7 and has taken members into its chapter each spring
since receiving the charter.
According to the constitution the members must be chosen
from the students enrolled in high school who at the time
of their election meet the following requirements:
1-They must be of at least junior standing.
2--They must be in the upper third of their class in
general scholastic standing.
3--They must have done superior work in some phase of
journalism or creative endeavor.
h--They must be recommended by the adviser or by the
co mittee governing publications.
S--They must be approved by the executive secretary.
Applications for membership are approved locally during
the month of April, and then are submitted to the execu-
tive secretary together with some of the applicants' orig-
inal work. when the pins and m mbership cards are received
by the sponsor,Mrs. Smith, a formal candlelight initiation
ceremony is held before the entire student body and facul- 1- Q
ty, and the awards are presented. 4 '

Our carnival, the biggest social event of the year, occurs dur-
ing the latter part of October. When the school and community c m-
bine efforts to join merry-making with money-making, one can imag-
ine what a big time we have.The first step we take in the planning
of our carnival is the election of king and queen candidates from
each grade from the eighth through the twelfth.Then the race is on
to see which class can get the most money and donations to elect
their candidates. The winner is declared carnival king and queen
and crowned at the coronation ceremony.
All during carnival week the students and teachers work hard
putting up booths and standsgcollecting money and donations.In the
afternoon of the big day we have a parade in which every grade has
a float or a stunt of some kind. It is highly enjoyable and gets
everyone into a jolly, excited mood. First prize of 85 and second
prize of S2 is given for the two best floats in each of the grade
school and the high school to go into their king-and-queen funds.
By the time the big night arrives our lovely big gym with its
shiny spacious floor has been transformed into one cluttered with
booths and stands and has a definite carnival atmosphere. Before
long the floor is covered with confettig the bingo game is going
strongg darts are being tossedg balls are being throwng novelties
and groceries are being boughtggirls are selling pop corn and pea-
nutsg the lunch room and cake walk are in full swayg aprons are on
display and purchasedg and up in the study hall a minstrel show is
As all the money for kings and queens must be in by 9 o'clock,
we usually know who has won by 9:30. Then everything goes on just
as usual until 10:30 when the coronation takes place. This is to
most people the grand climax of the evening.The girls are in love-
ly formals and the boys are in suits as the processional marches
to the stage, accompanied by a lively carnival march by the band.
Ihen the president of the Student Council crowns the beaming queen
and king. We often have a little program in honor of our royalty.
Although many are having such a good time that they aren't yet
ready to go home, everything is over except finishing a few games
of bingo and buying out the country store.
Finally all the lights are out, and everyone is home and in bed
dreaming about his wonderful time at the carnival.

We boys take great pride in the large as well as the small projects
we make in shop. Every boy has one class period a day, two lab periods
a week and more if he wants them. The fellows make anything from tie
racks to desks and corner cabinets. Some of us have had trouble remem-
bering what day and period our labs were, but lr. McGee, our instructor,
has helped to remind us. Very often at noon a number of the boys spend
their lab period in room 9. We would like to take this opportunity to
thank Mr.McGee for his enduring patience and guidance in our shop work.

On The 'farm Training
The Strafford class of veterans was first organized on June l,
l9h7. The organization of the class resulted largely through the
untiring efforts of Superintendent Lawrence Than and County Ag-
ricultural Agent C. C. Keller. Former Greene County Judge Law-
rence French was employed as the first instructor of the class,
and he served until late in l9h7 when class instruction was in-
terrupted because of the untimely death of LT. French. From Jan.
1 to April 1, 19MB lr. Winton Young of Springfield, Mo. served
as instructor of the class. Because of ids increased duties of
his fruit business, LI. Young was forced to give up the instruc-
torship at that time. On June 1, 19116 I.'r. L.L. Alexander of Col-
umbia, Mo. was employed as instructor of the class and has ser-
ved in this capacity to date.

took us awhlle to get used to lt all
By our sophomore year we felt that we knew
our way around Some of the boys and g1rls

U1th our decoratlons lmported directly from
Mex1co together with our flne fiesta MUSIC,
our splrit of galety was spontaneous
