Tommy CLASS HISTORY In the fall of 1959, 190 students entered the great halls of Swain High as freshmen. We were accustomed to being looked up to as eighth-graders, but soon found that freshmen were the " Objects of endless ridicule " ! After Mr. DeHart had pounded his words in our heads, with the aid of his famous ruler, we were finally revived in the spring by the Freshman- Eighth Grade party. We took the routine schedule of our sophomore year in stride - Mr, Frizzell ' s biology 1 ■ projects and our sophomore party. DiMng our traditional " spring fever, " the one thing that ' kept us going was the thought of bein ' in upperclassman the next school year. At the beginning of our junior year, we quickly found ourselves in a turmoil of raising money for our annual Junior-Senior. We worked hard and broke all school records on our bake sales. We honored the Seniors with an " Hawaiian Paradise " banquet and dance. Both teachers and students agreed that there was more participation than ever before. After sur¬ viving Mr. Wright ' s history class, we took all honors in the annual Field Day events. At last, we had reached the top, or so we thought. Topping last year ' s senior class in magazine sales, we started off with a bang! We continued throughout the year to raise money for our long-awaited Washington trip. Other highlights included our class rings and the Junior-Senior. As the year progressed toward graduation, we realized it was not the end, only a beginning.
