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

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

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-
