During this last year, the work on this staff has taught us to assume responsibility, to co- operate, and to take criticism. Above all, we've had that feeling of satisfaction, after completing a job. Yes, we've worked hard and learned much, but that was only part of it. After meetings, at dances, and on trips, we've shared many enjoyable hours. Through these times we have been drawn closer together and have become real friends. The comradeship we have found through our staff will remain with us long after our years here are over. It has been a great honor to serve on this staff. The things we've learned here and the friends we've made here, we will never forget. moment together ,nf vt xt, 4 ,J CQ ...ana ,.

As Freshmen we didn't participate in many activities. Our first big thrill was the Freshmen Hop at which we were officially welcomed by the Seniors. Another big thrill for the Home Economic girls was that unforgettable night they served at the football banquet. CSigh-h-hj The Freshmen football got under way and made quite a name for themselves. Gaining a little more confidence some joined the band. In june we viewed our first graduation. We were spellbound over this great event and couldn't believe that someday we might follow in their footsteps. Our Sophomore year we really got into the swing of things, joining many clubs and extra curricular activities. We gave our first big dance, the Sophomore Social. To our surprise and delight it was a huge success. Our next big thrill was the first election of our class officers. We elected Dickie Thompson, President, Bobby Desautels, Vice-President, Peggy Richards, Secretary, Mary Lou Kozloski, Treasurer, and Wilma Lyman, Historian. Our Junior year - upper classmen at last. Now our Social life began. People really began to take notice of us when we presented our Junior Prize Speaking. Will you ever 46 forget those butterflies you had in your stomach as you waited to try out, and the joy or disappointment of the next morning when we found out who had made it. The Prize Speakers were Margie Swehla, Carol Sulda, Barbara Jurek, Wilma Lyman, Roger Cross- man, Freddie Olchowski, Ernest Momaney, and Paul LeMoine. Through the co-operation of the whole class Prize Speaking went beautifully. The winners were Wilma Lyman, first prize, Carol Sulda, second prize, and Rodger Crossman, third prize. Next came that star sprinkled night - our junior Prom. The decorations were "April in Paris" designed by Martha Reil. Dressed in soft formals we floated through the evening, aglow with happi- ness. All too soon it was over. And so ended our successful junior year, and left us looking forward to the last and best - our Senior year. Senior year, the year we had dreamed about was finally here. We started out filled with new responsibilities and many hopes. We welcomed the Freshmen just a little sadly remembering four years ago when we had been welcomed in the same manner. Many of us were honored by being selected officers of various clubs. Senior play tryouts . . . hope- fully and fearfully we tried our best. The lucky people chosen to take part in the play, "The Barretts of Wimpole Street", were Carol Sulda and Dickie Thompson, the leads, Raymond Bender, Ernest Momaney, Elliot Markham, Lewis Brown, Philip Bordeau, Amy Cotter, Trudy Miller, joan Beauchamp, Wilma Lyman, janet Welsh, Peggy Richards, Ernest Yukl, Freddy Olchowski, Margie Swehla, and Roger Crossman. joan Webster and Martha Reil were the able assistants to Miss Teed. All the committees who worked behind the scenes were just as responsible for our success as were the members of the cast. Naturally none of us will ever forget the party which followed. The months flew by and before we knew it we were caught in the flurry and confusion of preparing for graduation. In those last days before we graduated we realized gravely that this was the end of four years in which our lives had really begun. And so we go sadly but proudly, leaving behind us a commendable record. 47 CLASS WILL We the class of "fifty four" being of sound mind ?? bequeath to our underclassmen the following tokens of our highest esteem: Sis Jackson leaves to Janice Zum her basketball ability.

Here, after seven weeks of private lessons with Miss Alice Teed, they faced an expectant audience. Each walked steadily toward center stage and then poured forth his selection. The curtain finally fell and tears of joy were shed as each embraced the other. After what seemed an interminable period the judges were ready with their decisions. The chairman steeped forward. The moment had arrived. Wilma Lyman captured first prize with her hilariously humorous narration of "Happy Birthday", by john Mason Brown. Second prize was awarded to Carol Sulda for her poignantly beautiful interpretation of Martena Tenny's "Intermission at the Monte Carlo Ballet". To Roger Crossman went the third prize for his masterful portrayal of Jesse Stuart's "A Penny's Worth of Character". That night with its excitement, tension, tears and laughter will never be forgotten by these lucky eight. 54 S j i 1'. i -.. l M 5 5 I ' i ' gg W-4 c, Q I .. U' PRO MERITOS , . 'H . . . . . .
