ln the fall of l944, twenty-one Freshmen entered into Van Buren High
School. 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.
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
To the Sophomores we bequeath our bus-
iness-like minds and our ability to make
money and keep our treasury in good stand-
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.

build to Kenney Wynkoop.

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-
