Dread1ng the thought that our hlgh school days are nearly over
we pause a moment to recall the happy events of the past four years
Our foremost memory 15 of freshman 1n1t1at1on queer costumes
p1gta1ls and green rlbbons' As sophomores we were well repre
sented 1n all act1v1t1es but had no outs
just markmg t1me wh1le wa1t1ng to become upper classmen
Then came our Jun1or year' Whoop to do' We were al1ve aga1n'
Our f1rst b1g moment was the arrlval of our rlngs Next we
plunged 1nto the class play The Case of the M1SS1ng He1rs" wh1ch
was a huge success Our prom the b1g moment of our Jun1or year
was ushered 1n w1th a flourlsh of act1v1ty and excltement
Our f1rst respons1b1l1ty as senlors was to 1n1t1ate the freshmen
At last we were on the dlspenslng end 1n thls all lmportant event.
Later, we showed our apprec1at1on for the1r good sportsmansh1p
by g1v1ng an all school party 1n the1r honor
In the spr1ng we were honored guests at the prom g1ven by the
Class of '55 Followmg th1s, our sen1or sneak, a thr1ll packed
event, led us on to the long awalted Class Nlght, and, then, to the
more ser1ous events Baccalaureate and Commencement fAnd

Under the capable direction of Mr Christy the Vale High School Band
sixty members strong has done much to promote school spirit Music
provided at football and basketball games in addition to the intricate drills
at halftime on the football field added zest and enjoyment for all spectators
The uniform fund was increased by returns from a Halloween Carnival On
December lO Mr Christy and the band members were honored at a ban
quet served by the Band Mothers an organization devoted to promoting the
interests of the band
A variety of selections ranging from popular tunes to familiar classics
made up the programs for the annual Chistmas and Spring Concerts -
creased interest in practice was in evidence as the band prepared for the
S R V. Music Clinic This was not in vain for Vale members returned with
their share of honors In February the beautifully decorated gym was the
scene of the Sweetheart's Ball.
The activities of the band were enjoyed by the members and appreciated
by the entire student body. It was with a genuine feeling of sadness that the
fifteen Senior members sat idle while the rest of the band practiced "Pomp
and Circumstance. "
