Many people never give it a thought as their duty. If the weather on election day is bad the polls are most likely to lie empty. They are thinking only of their cornfort. not their duty. If the privilige of voting was taken away from those who did 'not vote they would give more thought to it. We hope that we in the future will remember this duty and exercise the privilige we are granted as citizens of the United States of America. I, in behalf of the Senior Class of '49 take this opportunity of thanking Miss Palmer. Mr. Swingle, M r. Gellat. Mrs. Gellat. and all who have in any way helped to make this yearbook a success.

The best evidence of this is the United Nations Assembly. On a much smaller scale, we. of the Thompsonafitarrucca area are following the wisdom of those precedents. The responsibility of education is no light taskg the cost of education is no light burden: the understanding of two communities cannot be fostered if separated by distance and ideals. The members of the Thompson and Starrucca School Boards. speaking for and representing the citizens of their respective communities, realized that the best results could be accomplished only through a common and united front. To reach this end they have formed the T hompson-S tarrucca Joint S chool B oard, The wisdom of this union may not be appreciated today or tomorrow, it may take a period of time, but the proof of this wisdom will be evident when our two communities shall be fused into one in thought, desire, effort and success. To the members of the Thompson-Starrucca Joint B oard, we say: "Well done, good and faithful servants of our Community." Members of the Thompson-S tarrucca Joint School Board are: Dr. H. W.

Now that we are graduating from Thompson High We look back at those years with Happiness. So fare thee well, dear schoolmates we are leaving you To go on to horizons so bright But never will we'er forget our schoolmates Of Thompson High our Alma Mater dear. Dear Mom and Dad And teachers who have taught us We wish to show our gratitude to you For the kind help and patience you have shown us Thru the four long years at Thompson High School So fare thee well, kind teachers we are leaving you To go out into this world so great And in the future we will ne'er forget you Our frineds of dear old Thompson HighSchool. W ritten by Eleanor Lidaka and H azel C randall CLASS MOTTO We C ame, We Studied, We Conquered We, the class of Nineteen Hundred and Forty-Nine have chosen as our class motto: We Came, We Studied, We Conquered This motto stands for the work we have accomplished during our HighSchool life. It tells how we came faithfully for four long years, and how we studied diligently, and at last conquered the many obstacles that lay in our pathway. Now, as we go forth to earn our living in the world, we shout this message to the world, "We Come, We Will Work, We W ill C onquer. Joseph Levc hak 13 CLASS FLOWER 0 We, the Senior Class of 1949. have chosen the Red Rose as our C lass Flower. This rose symbolizes the past four years, in which we have dwelled within the walls of our Alma Mater. In our Freslunan year we were like the rosebud, fragile and young. and we unfolded only a feyv petals. We had not the strength of a full grqwn rose but as all beautiful roses must be tended, pruned, nurtured and cultivated, we started our growth. In our Sophomore year the rosebud had developed a stronger stem, the petals opened more fully and now for the first time a delicate fragrance came from the flower. Like the rose, we were gaining more knowledge from our books, everyday life, and our relation with other Human Beings. As Juniors, the deeper and more hidden qualities of the rose had reached almost full growth, and as the petals unfolded its beauty, fragrance. and strength were visible to the hurnan eye. As the rose is plucked to become a part of a bouquet to beautify the lives of men, we the Seniors, had reached our full maturity. We are, indeed, fledgling citizens of a great democracyg we are products of our educational system, we are social beings ready to step forward to higher degrees of social, economic and political lifel As the rose was brought to its full beauty by the skillfulcare of nature and the gardener, so we have been brought to ours by our parents and teachers, the gardeners of our lives. It has been said that the rose is a symbol of courage, love. and beauty: we hope that our lives will be full of courage, love, and beauty. With this thought in mind, we have chosen the Red Rose as our C lass F lower. Hazel C randall CLASS COLORS Blue and White We, the class of Nineteen Hundred and Forty-Nine. have selected for our C lass Colors, Blue and White. We first chose the blue of truth for our foundation--the blue of the sky and the sea, and of all eternal things that are as true and as high as the heavens, and as deep and as unresting as the ocean. With this blue we blend the white as our secondary class color. Hoping that the purity it typifies may become closely inculcated in our personal principles and that by blending it with the blue of truth, our courage may be kept ever clean and white--that we may remain always pure of thought and word and deed, brave of purpose and spirit. Yes, brave and pure of motive in all that we may think, or say, or do throughout the course of our lives. So we start on this voyage of life holding the colors of blue and white proudly aloft, determined to stand by them to the end, building for ourselves lives of braver, purer promise and richer value. and characters of sterling strength and tested purity, through a wise and happy blending of the blue with the white. Elwood L ee 14 C LASS HIS TORY The month of September, 1945 found the presentSenior Class of '49 gathered in Mr. Chilson's room for roll call. Everyone seemed to be present from the elementary grades, but to our surprise there were some new faces. When roll was taken it was as follows: Joan C urtis Elwood Lee Eleanor L id aka Elvin L amb Marian Stager Vincent Lidaka D orothy Smith Richard Hines Hazel C randall Clarence Slocum Jessie Ross Meryle C oon George B urman The new members we found to be, Richard Hines and Clarence Slocum from Starrucca. We elected the following officers for the year: President - Elvin Lamb Vice-President - Jessie Ross Secretary - Elwood Lee Treasurer - Marian Stager Sponsor 'T - Miss Coar During the year two members, John Worby and Donald Peltz, paid us a short visit. 1 There was a hot dog roast in the early fall sponsored by Miss Coar. Being Freshmen this was our only activity of the year. We left Thompson High School in the spring of '46 hoping to see all our friends when we returned as full-fledged Sophomores. Upon our return in the fall we gaily trouped into the Sophomore room. We again found two new members added to our class, namely Gordon Glover' and Joseph Levchak, from Starrucca. The officers elected for the year were: President - Eleanor Lidaka Vice-P resident - Gordon Glover S ecretary - Joseph Levchak Treasurer - Joan Curtis Sponsor - Miss Mumford Our activity during the year was a class party held November Zl, in Miss Mumford's music room. Refreshments of ice cream and cake were served by Jessie Ross, Eleanor Lidaka, Joseph Levchak and Elwood Lee. Various games were played during the evening. It was enjoyed by all. The year ended with rather few accomplishments and we prepared ourselves for the last two years. It hardly seemed possible but after a short vacation here we were half-way through our school career and in Mr. Swingle's room. Dorothy Smith, Elvin Lamb and Merlye Coon. members of our class left leaving a greater job for us to fulfill because of our reduced nu.mber. The officers for the year were: President - Marian Stager Vice-President - Gordon Glover Secretary - Richard Hines Treasurer - Eleanor Lidaka Sponsor - Miss Saxton In the beginning of the year we received word that Dorothy Smith was attending school in Susquehanna, Elvin Lamb was helping his father on the farm, and Merlye Coon was waiting for induction papers into the army. 15 During this year our activities increased. Two of our members, Joe Levchak and Marian Stager, were appointed to the yearbook staff. A class party was held at the summer cottage of Jessie Ross's. The committee that was appointed to furnish entertainment was Jessie Ross, George Burman, Richard Hines and Marian Stager. Music was played fpr square dancing, besides games. Refreshments were brought in by each member of the class. On arrival of our sponsor, Miss Saxton, also Miss Pace and Mr. Swingle, the group burst forth with songs. Everyone took part in the singing. Soon the time came for us to begin the annual play. It was entitled "ABIGAII.. GOES HAYWlRE", which was a huge success. We soon were given the honor of selecting our class rings, which was a big thrill to all of us. Toward the last part of the second semester we were sorry to lose Jessie Ross and Clarence Slocum. Feeling that our Junior year was well spent left to await our final goal. Ascending the last of the four great steps, we found ourselves filing into the Senior room under the supervision of Miss Palmer. We settled down the first day and looked for familiar faces. One was missing, Richard, Hines fthe humorist of our classj. Though we were glad to welcome a new acquaintance, Richard Wall, from Susquehanna. We elected officers for the year. President - Joseph Levchak Vice-President - Elwood Lee Secretary - Gordon Glover Treasurer - Vincent Lidaka Sponsor - Miss Palmer In the middle of September we were proudly wearing our class rings. Our last opportunity to show our acting ability was in the Senior Play entitled, "NEVER TOUCHED ME". Since our funds were low we sold soda and candy at our baseball and basketball games. This proved very successful and we had a great deal of fun doing it. To our surprise we received a Christmas card from Mrs. Jessie Stone, formerly Miss Jessie Ross. The class takes great pleasure in wishing her happiness. Richard Hines is kept busy working on a farm. During the year our class was honored with two service men, formerly members of our class, Clarence Slocum and Meryle Coon, both in the Army. Best of luck to you, boys! In the midst of our other duties we began our yearbook, with everyone doing his task to help make it a success. Now that the eventful day is drawing near, we feel that our high school career has been well spent. We, the Senior C lass of '49, want to take this opportunity of thanking all the teachers who have guided us through our school days for their patience and helpful advice.

And days o' auld lang syne? 16 CLASS PROPHECY OF 1949 It is time for the class reunion in the year of the atom age. As I set out to invite my former classmates to join for this gathering, this is howl have them pictured since they left dear old Thompson High in the year 1949. The first personl met as I started out was Elwood Lee. Elwood is a service station attendant: all day he drops little atom pills into the gas tank. I visited with Elwood for awhile, and asked him where some of the other members of our class lived. He told me Joe Levchak owned a large dairy farm down the road, second place on the Starrucca road, toward Susquehanna. Waving good-bye. I told Elwood I would see him at the reunion. My next stop was to see Joe. Gee, what a farm he owns. As I stepped from the car, I saw J'oe standing out by the barn. I waved, and he came down to see whol was. He had never expected to see me dressed as a State Nurse, and driving a new State car. We congratulated each other over our success. When we came back to earth, he took me on an inspection tour. What a beautiful place! He told me he owned 3000 acres in all. After the jaunt around the yards I was exhausted, so I bid him adieu and went to the car for a rest. As I was about to start out, who should pull to the side of my car but Gordon Glover. What a treat for sore eyes, bow tie and all. He certainly looked sharp. I asked him what he was doing since school days, and he told me he was running a model agency in Bermuda, and had just come back for a look at the little old building on the hill that was so dear to our hearts. As we stood talking about his work, I asked him who some of his models were. To my pleasant amazement, he named Eleanor Lidaka. Of course, I'll always remember Eleanor as a very attractive girl who set many hearts on fire with her smile. Gordon said she was engaged to some big executive in Bermuda. Well, time was running short so I told himl enjoyed our pleasant visit, and invited him to our reunion and drove off. Where my next stop was I did not know until I saw a sign ahead that read "Marion's Diner". I wondered if this could be our own MarionStager. Inquisitive me, I stopped and entered the diner. My hunch was right. There was Marion, happy as a lark serving some of her customers. This made me very hungry, and where could I get any better food than at Marion's? She joined me for lunch and we had a very pleasant chat. She told me that her head waitress would be in soon. She had no sooner spoke when the head wait- ress came through the door. To my unbelieving eyes it was Hazel Crandall. Hazel stopped at our table to ,say "hello" and welcomed me to the Diner. B ut since her boss was sitting with me she went to work. I told Marion about the reunion and she said that both of them would be there. I paid my check, bid them farewell and was on my way. As I learned from Marion. my next stop was to be in the adjoining town. Little did I think of the speed I was traveling until a police car pulled up along- side of me, and forced me to stop. The officer got out and came over and who do you think it was? It surprised me and I am sure it will be a surprise to you It was Vincent Lidaka. I felt very much embarrassed having a classmate fine me for speeding. but it was his duty. 17 We visited for awhile and I agreed to see him in court the next morning. I-Ie allowed me to go on my way, but as I drove I watched my speedometer until I entered the next town. I decided to stay there and wait for court to open next day, so I looked for a hotel. It was located upon a hill overlooking the town. I drove up to the entrance and went in to make my reservation for a room. There at the desk marked "Manager" was George Burman. I went over to chat awhile and he told me this was only one of the chain of hotels he owned. I was glad I was remembered, becausel got a beautiful room and very good service. This was one of the best night's restl had had in a long time. Next morning when I went to pay the bill, orders had been left that the charges were taken care of by George. I left a note reminding him of the reunion and thanked him for his kindness. I proceeded to the Court House, and began to feel a little shaky as I climbed the stairs. But, as I got to the court room door, I was greeted by Vincent. He took me into the court room and there seated at the desk with the gavel in his hand was Richard Wall. I-le told what they do to people who violate the law. He looked up then and saw who I was. and had to laugh over the lecture that he had given me. He let me off easy, just a lecture. but warned me not to let it happen again. So I invited him to the reunion and hurried down the hall out of the Court that I might get started back to my own office to make arrangements for the reunion for our classmates to be held in Thompson at the School Hall, where after having a bountiful supper we could spend the balance of the evening dancing with the music furnished by the school orchestra. W ritten by Joan C urtis Mr. Chilson: Joe, what is a recession? I oe Levchak: A period in which you tighten your belt. Mr. Chilson: Elwood, what is a depression? Elwood Lee: That's when you have no belt to tighten. Mr. Chilsom Gordon, what is a panic? Gordon Glover: That's when you have no pants to hold up. Mr. Chilson: Vincent, why aren't there more cases of lockjaw? Vincent Because the peoples mouths are going constantly.
