So We must go instead of lingering on,
Adeiu dear teachers, friends and all,
Out into the world we go to make our call,
Our days at T. V. H S. were full of fun,
hind thoughts had always come in tons.
Sc we are sorry that We must part,
With tear dimmed eyes, and a saddened heart,
We bid farewell to Thompson High School,
And we go armed, with the Golden Rule,
For all who helped us, and all who care,
There's a place in our hearts, where memories we share.

CLASS H I STORY
In the fall of 1940, twenty-eight Freshmen eagerly climbed the stair-
way at Thompson Vocational High School to begin their high school
career. In the early part of the year we had a misfortune, three classmates,
Hazel Eade, Elmer Bryden, and Joseph Slama left us to fulfill other duties.
Before we knew it, the year was over and we were Sophomores,
climbing higher and higher to the ladder of success. Our joys were over-
fiowing when three new members, Ruth Boose, Ernest Burchell, and Ray
Welch joined us. But then we were sorry to lose seven others, namely:
Elizabeth June, Jean Wheeler, Ruth Boose, Albert Lowrie, Benny Slama,
Ray Welch, and Howard Cobb. During the year We had a successful
Hollowe'en Party, and a candy sale.
Throughout our Junior year, our activities were rather limited be-
cause of the war. However, we managed two lunch sales and a magazine
contest. All proved successful. Elis Brooks, Elizabeth Burman, Robert
Crandall, Marion Seeley, and Carl Livingston left us, and Elizabeth June
joined us again.
As we entered the school house in 1943, we realized we were Seniors,
and this probably would be our last year together. Therefore, We had
to make it a successful one. Gladys Wall, a Starrucca girl, joined us, and
Elizabeth Burman and Carl Livingston rejoined us. It was not long before
Elizabeth Burman's name was changed to Mrs. Oakley. But again, we
lost two more, Alice Crosier Ross, who assumed domestic duties, and
Ernest Burchell, who left to his country's call. Activities for the year
included a chicken supper, and a Drama entitled, "Spider's Web." We
know that our Senior success is due to Mr. Gelatt, our sponsor. His willing
efforts and cooperation will not be forgotten.
Throughout the four years of our high school career we have been
well represented in school activities. We have had members in Baseball,
Basketball, Orchestra, Band, and Glee Clubs.
Now, as we close our school books and bid all our friends farewell,
we look back at our high school days, and know that they have helped
us to prepare for our life's journey. For this, we shall always remember
our days at Thompson Vocational High School.

CLASS PROPH ECY
If you should ever pass through the village of '44, incidentally es-
tablished by the graduates of Thompson Vocational High School, you
will no doubt recognize some of its occupantsg their ambitions, and
As you approach '44, you come upon a WAC encampment under the
supervision of Second Lt. Lewis. Although strict in her ways, her per-
sonality proves she is a friend to them, and to all in the community.
Progressing further we see a large business concern, owned and
operated by Carola Davis, who has recently left, and is visiting a certain
person on furlough on a farm just outside of Thompson. Now carrying
on the business successfully in her absence is Miss Joyce Potter. Helping
her as only Helen knows how is Miss Barnes, private secretary.
Still further along the street we see a store-the name? Slocum's
Economy Store. We see Eudora has followed the footsteps of her father.
She is very shy and quiet, but nevertheless, she has won friends with all
in the community.
We are approaching a large hotel with the sign "Waldorf Astoria,
Jr." Inside many attractive meals are served-the cook? Of course, it's
Elfrieda Stone. The waitress is our blackhaired, little Irish lass from
Starrucca, Kathryn Gilleran.
The '41 Army and Navy Hospital is next. Caring for the sick are
First Lts. Boose and Snyder. They stand by their patients day and night,
as only they know how. We see Dorothy is especially interested in the
.As we exit from the hospital, Whom do we see coming down the
street but Admiral Stack, home on leave. We wonder if he blushes when
he gives orders, could be, but we knew his smile and pleasing personality
would receive for him this promotion.
In '44, of course, there must be music because the class had such
musical ability among its members. Miss Catherine Kessler is honoring
us at the present with her magical violin. She has taken time off as a
soloist with the New York Symphony Orchestra to be with us a few days.
We are very proud to have such a Well known and liked couple as
Dr. Oakely and his Wife and children. They are very lively children, so
don't get too close. Perhaps they have inherited some of their mother's
love of jokes.
People couldn't live unless someone produced the food, and that hard
work is now done by the women in our community. Only Mary could or-
ganize such an institution. If you stop in for a while, I'm sure Farmerette
Mary Hubal could show you her accomplishments in her garden and'
around the home.
Our little village must not be without a church. Our priest is John
Krall. Although, he was very popular with the weaker sex during his
school days, he is now a very refined gentleman. He will always be quiet
and shy, but Johnnie is a very popular member of the town.
We must not forget Gladys, who lives on the end of the. avenue with
her mother. She has proved her loyalty to her Mother, and our small .com-
munity. Her card parties and tea's she gives are a joy to the women of
And now as we leave the village of '44, we glance at a large factory.
We see walking among the workers, helping them, is Elizabeth June.
She is always ready to offer a helping hand, and has friends among all
her fellow workers. Ambition is one thing that furthered her career in
We have left the village of '44, but wait-look back over the town-
it's a bird, it's a plane-yes, it's a plane-and inside? Our old friend
Carl Livingston, Air Corps Pilot. He worked hard and did much to fur-
ther the prosperity of '44. We believe he has seen some action abroad,
and has returned with many medals.
And now as we leave the small village of '44, we hope that you will
return in a few years, and the town will be a large city, more prosperous
than ever before.
Thompson High we regret to leave
You, and all our friends besides
But we must go, for here you know
Is where our trail divides.
Of you always we shall dream,
And of all our happy times together
But although fan unknown world -we face
Fond thoughts will linger on forever.
All of these years we've been together
All of these things that we'll remember
All of these things we will remember
As we go along our way.

Our club is aiiiliated with the State and National Clubs. Therefore,
it was awarded the State and National Club Affiliation certificate.
The usual acivities have been limited because of the war. But we did
manage a few sales, which were successful.
We, also, had a Christmas and Valentine party. Comments were that
every one enjoyed themselves.
ln behalf of the class, I wish to thank Mrs Zeafla, who has suc-
cessfully sponsored our club, and for her sincere cooperation.
