SWANTON HIGH SCHOOL
hor s e , but a 1952 Ford bus. We're off,
hitting every bump, being tossed backward
and forward, up and down, but always
r e a c hing o ur destination, the little red
school house of Swanton High.
We shall make our exit s lowly for I have
learned it is useless to even try to depart
from an over-loaded bus by shoving, Since
the boy in the seat behind us ate my lunch
I plan to eat at the cafeteria,
Upon entering the building we find
groups of students standing around talking.
The people are not all girls either as you
find hundreds of mouths going like fury
telling fr i end s what has happened since
they last saw each other . It is amazing
all the gossip that springs up in that 3:30-
- 8:5 O period,
We shall push our way past the s e people
and try to find my locker. I can never re-
member the number, but it really doesn't
matter for my Eng li sh book is in Jane's
locker, my shorthand noteb ook in Sue's,
and that A me r i c an government book has
probably been turned in at the office since
I las t saw it yesterday. There's plenty
of time before the bell rings, two rninutes,
so I simply mus t comb my hair, talkin
with YOU Mary about last night, and borrow
now and come with me on a visit to the a pencil for the day.
halls of SHS. So that you will not be no-
ticed, and to pr e vent the students from
acting differently with a visitor in their
midst. pretend you have attained the body
of a mouse. Climb into my pocket, but
peek out whenever you wi s h , Be Careful
not to fall out, for should you make your
descent during the changing of classesyou
would find your s e lf amidst a. thundering
herd of stampeding students, Now off we
go for a hectic day of high school antics,
Our visit commences as we mount our
trusty yellow steed and the driver steps
on the gas pedal. No this isn'ta 190 7

Well, her e We are in physical education
class, but why don't the girls hav e their
gyrn suits on? It seems that some prank-
ster let the air out of the basketballs and
phys ed classes are canceled for the day.
Second period we visit journalism c la s s
wh er e we find fifteen students sitting in
nice soft lHa! 1. seats reading and clipping
newspapers and old Hi-Lifes.
After this class we have five minutes to
get to thir d p er iod. Even with all this
time, the halls still look like bargain dav
at Maceys'. Only three minor casualties
so far, but the day is still young. I hope
you're a mou s e with a good coat of fur,
for s ometime s this place gets so cold
even the polar bears would evacuate.
Our next class is that of scribbling and
pounding, commonly c a l l e d , shorthand
and typing. When I first started short-
hand, it reminded me of the letter s my
cousin and I us ed to wr it e to each other
when we were s rna l l . And typing! I'm
the one who kept the paper niills in bus-
iness while I lear ne d which finger went
Continuing our visit We enter the audito-
rium wher e we find the sixty vocalists
who compose the girls' glee c lub. The
important thing to learn her e , is to talk
to your neighbor and sing simultaneously,
At noon, we hurr y to the cafeteria and
even try "pushing the line", to no avail,
and usually end up eating chili and prunes.
In room 201 we study human r e lations,
Reports are given weekly on topics vary-
ing from dog food to nylons, The purpose
of the class is for pupils to und er s tand
their actions better, and from some gf
the antics that go on, I'd call it "humo r

Corn F e stival
This junior class will be the first to complete its four
years of high school in the new building. The future sen-
iors have worked hard all year raising money for the an-
ual Junior -Senior Prom sponsored by the juniors,
One of the main sources used by the juniors to raise rev-
enue has been selling candy at noon and after school to the
students, and also at the football and basketball games.
Another source is the junior class play.
M aft Pete Najarian, President

Julia Corwin, Secretary
Marie Pawlaczyk, Treasurer
This year the juniors sponsored the "Get Acquainted" dance
which increased the treasury. For the Corn Festival par-
ade the class of '56used the theme of B. Junior -Senior Prom
which is their clirnax of the year.
Along with the other excitements of being an upperclass-
man, it is also the time for the selection of class rings.
The junior sponsors are Mr. Bonam, Mrs. Jeska, and

At Swanton High School, organizations P la y
an impor tant role in unifying the school,
Since the high school is composed of agreat
number of tuition students, there are many
pupils who would like to become acquainted
with each othergbut due to the fact that they
do not have classes together, this is diffi-
cult to accomplish.
This is where organizations perform their
first task. They acquaint the students with
each other, and also assist the faculty in be-
coming acquainted With the students. Clubs
also help them learn cooperation b y spon-
soring and planning projects and activities.
Good behavior and discipline are stressed
by all clubs, as well as good sportsmanship
and school Spirit.
Some of the clubs develop certain interests
and hobbies that will be useful in adult life,

In terms ofSwanton's athletic accom-
plishments, 1954-55 would not be an
outstanding year, But it is how you
play the game that counts. The Bull-
dogs have always been noted for their
high degree of sportsmanship, .and
this will be more important to the
individual player in the long run.
If a game ceases to be fun, itis no
longer a game, Swanton teams have
probably derived more fun from par-
ticipation in athleti c events than
many of their opponents. SHS did
is ' A
not always win, but when it did -- Oh,
how it won! Do you remember Ros-
ChI1'18.21i1'S touchdown runback of an in-
tercepted Maumee pass whichg a v 'Q
Swanton a 12 to 6 victory on the last
play of the game? Or the big game
when the Bulldogs held D e lta four
inches from a touchdown at the final
gun to preserve a 12 to 7win? These
were sweet victories, but not "pres-
sure" victories. It is too bad when a
school will disownits teams, or ride
its coach, unless, they come up with
a winner every year.

Thank you for your letter of March 15 and for the
pictures of the senior girls which we are returning
Since all of the girls looked so charming, it was
a difficult choice for Mr. Allen to make. However,
he has made his selections and so indicated them
by numbering the back of the pictures. ..
He has asked me to convey his best personal wishes
to the graduating class of Swanton High School.
