After several days we organized and elected the following officers: President, Gene George, Vice-President, Louise Hartman, Secretary, Mary Ann Decker, and Treasurer, Betty Huffman. Mrs. Hall was our sponsor until Mr. Bowersox returned from the Service. Eilene Watts joined us after the Christmas vacation. We had several successful class parties that year at the Lake and at the Hogback. ln September l945, we came back to Van Buren High School as Sopho- mores. This year there were twenty of us. We missed the familiar faces of Ed McDonald, Leroy Verbon, Eloise Ewing, and Dick Clapp, but we gained two new members. They were Doris Opperman and Howard O'Dell. Later in the year Marvin Smith left us. During the first week we elected the following officers: President, Jo Franks, Vice-President, Louise Hartman, Secretary, Mary Ann Decker, and Treasurer, Reggie August. Miss Bryant was our sponsor. Several boys were active in sports that year. In September I946, we arrived safely to begin our Junior year. Eloise Ewing joined us again this year, and we were glad to welcome Chuck Andrus, who had just returned from the U. S. Navy, but we lost two members. They were David August and Gene George. The following officers were elected: President, Reggie August, Vice President, Chuck Andrus, Secretary, Kath- leen Cook, and Treasurer, Eilene Watts. During the first semester Kathleen Cook left us and Jo Franks took her place as Secretary. Our sponsor was Miss Bryant. We held a Halloween Party at the Hillcrest Restaurant and several class parties. Our class' was well represented in both football and basketball and we also sold candy and pop at the games. ln May we presented a three- act play, "Miss Chatterbox." The play was well received by everyone. On May 2, we entertained the Seniors at the Junior-Senior Banquet in the School Auditorium. We carried a circus theme throughout the banquet. 4 On September 8, l947, Van Buren High School found eight boys and eight girls entering as Seniors. Louise Hartman, Eloise Ewing, and Doris Opperman were not among our group. This year we had as our sponsor Mr. Vansant. The following officers were elected: President, Harold George, Vice-Presi- dent, Howard O'Dell, Secretary, Mary Ann Decker, and Treasurer, Betty Huffman, This year we held a Halloween Dance and a Valentine's Dance in the High School Auditorium. We presented the three-act play "Mr, Beane from Lima", on May 7. Cn May l4, the Juniors presented us with a Junior- Senior Banquet. Baccalaureate Services were held at the Presbyterian Church, May l6. On May 2l, Commencement was held and we took our de- parture from Van Buren High School. CHISS We, the Senior Class of i948 of Van Buren High School feel that this day of de- parture from this High School life is at hand. Being of sound memory and sane mind, we make the following bequests, and do avow this as our last will and testament. To the Juniors we bequeath our sweet temper and gentle manner along with our reputation for being brilliant students. We also will them our class room with the new beautiful seats with initials carved upon them. To the Sophomores we bequeath our bus- iness-like minds and our ability to make money and keep our treasury in good stand- ards. To the Freshmen we do bequeath our wisdom, experience, and good conduct grades. We hope this will furnish an exam- ple for them to follow. Chuck Andrus wills his master mind to Bill Elderbrock. Reggie August wills his Charles Atlas build to Kenney Wynkoop. Phyllis Bibler wills her curly hair to Thel- ma Wilkinson. Tom Bright wills his teeth to Mr. Hasson. ilf he ever finds them on the football field.l Earl Decker wills his Orange Convertable Manufacturing Company to be divided equally among the Upper Classmen. lHave you heard, Kids?l Annie Decker wills her way of going steady to Rosine Lehman. lDon't worry Rosine, there are a couple left. And her ability to skip school without getting caught, to anyone who can get away with if Mary Ellen Flanagan wills her ability to get in early to Bonnie Stough, lThink you can do it?l Joanne Franks wills her muscles to Paul- ine Rader. llllll Harold George wills his height to "Stretch Chapman." Richard Goff wills his Ford to Buzz May and his driving record to Florence Stough. lBetter get together, Kids.l Betty Huffman wills her way with Mr. Mancuso to Donna Updegraff. Laura McCartney wills her men in North Baltimore to Kathryn Fullerton. iHope you succeed, Kathy.l Howard O'Dell wills his odd collection of pipes to Mr. Mancuso. iHope it doesn't af- fect you like it does Howard.l Ruby Rose wills her giggling to Fairy Fullerton. lBeware of Vansantl. Gene Russell wills his ability of always getting hurt in games and his broken bones to Gene Franks. Eilene Watts wills her fine alto voice to Martha Rider. lDoes she need it?l Reggie August and Richard Goff will their empty beer bottles to Bill Fleegle. To the next years' Senior decoration com- mittees, we will a surprise box which you will find under the cot in Mr. Vansant's office. We, the Senior Class of l948, do here- by set our hand and seal this Twenty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and forty-eight, and declare this foregoing instrument to be our last will and testament.

We began our year by electing the fol- lowing officers: President, Florence Stough, Vice-President, Bill Elderbrock, Secretary, Farry Morris, Treasurer, Glen Buckland, Reporter, Cloyce Baker. We found our class enrollment had de- creased slightly. VVe were sorry to lose Jeannene Dittman, Jim Hall, Laura Hostot- tle, and Clyde Rose as classmates, but we welcomed as a new member Ruth Marriott from Pandora High School. During the year, Harold Copus and Jim Showman left our ranks, and we found that our class then numbered twenty-four. We began our year of work and activi- ties by joining with the Senior Class in sell- ing refreshments at the football games. When the basketball 'season started, we as- sumed full responsibility for the concession stand. When the new Student Council was or- ganized we were honored to have our class- mate, Glen Buckland, chosen as its presi- dent. As some of our Junior activities, on De- cember ZO, l947, we sponsored a Christmas Dance for the student body and community. Preceding the Van Buren-Arlington basket- ball game, February 6, l948, we held the annual Junior Class chicken supper. Then we began work on our Junior Class Play, which was directed by Miss Bryant. As a climax to our year of added respon- sibilities we feted the Senior Class to the annual Junior-Senior banquet, which was held May I4, 1948.- All things considered we have spent a very busy, but enjoyable junior year and we are looking forward to a very successful senior year.

On September 8, i948 a class of twenty- four cocky, but very green Freshmen en- tered Van Buren High School. We were scared, but determined to make our marks in the-annals of the History of Van Buren High School. We started the new year with two new pupils, Phyllis and Mike Brumbaugh, as well as a new sponsor, Mr. Hassan. The first week we elected the following officers: ' President, Ray Gillespie, Vice President, Dave Slaughterbeck, Secretary, Jim Opperman, Treasurer, Maxine Baker, and Reporter, Barbara DeRodes. Later a student council was organized in the Junior-Senior High School. Shirley Grif- fith and Joe Green were our represent- atives. Several members of our class were on the football squad, with Bill Fleegle, Jim Opper- man, and Ray Franks making Varsity let- ters. Bill Fleegle also was a member of the basketball squad. Our class is well represented in both band and choral groups. At Christmas we had a Christmas party and gift exchange at the home of the president. We now feel we are well adjusted, full fledged members of Van Buren High School. Also we are looking forward to next year.

HLEHUE IT T US" "Leave It To Us," a comedy in three acts directed by Miss Martha Bryant, was pre- sented by the Junior Class on April 2, l948. Johnny Reynolds and Charlie Smith, two enterprising young business men, have formed an advertising organization, Promo- tions, Limited, to promote the sales ot new and promising inventions. Helping them in this venture are Mar- garet Proctor, Johnny's sweetheart, and Harriet Jones, who is really Helen Westfall, a newspaper heiress in disguise, ond who is falling in love with Charlie. Just when Promotions, Limited is really "limited promotions" business begins to boom when J. August Peabody brings in his revolutionary new'tace cream and Miss Roberta Hemple, her new dry cleaner which is not a liquid, but a cream. Just what happens when the dry cleaning cream is mistaken for the face cream, forms the plot of this laugh-provoking farce- comedy. CAST Johnny Reynolds ................
