Page Senior Class History By Bernadine Schafer On one fine autumn day in the fall of 1934, 64 future builders of our great nation assembled in Vassar High School. 'They had come to acquire more knowledge so that they might some day be able to try that great "boundless sea of life" well prepared. The first few days were spent in getting acquainted with High School life and the exceptionally fine staff of teachers. As Freshmen we elected as our class president, Don Garner, vice-president, Beatrice Web- sterg secretary, Alberta Reichleg treasurer, Edward Swanson, and Mr. Hamilton as class sponsor. One day late in the month of September we were instructed to appear at school the following day, the girls wearing their dresses inside out, bows in their hair and carrying dolls, the boys wearing over-alls and aprons. The Sophomores called it initiation and of course the Freshmen were compelled to agree with them. The next fall, fifty-nine out of the sixty-four returned as sopho- mores. Many interesting and successful events occurred during our sophomore year. We succeeded in selecting our class officers which were: Ted Slafter, presidentg Emma Andrews, vice-presidentg Jack Ho.1- singer, secretary, Frances Russell treasurer, and as our class sponsor, Mr. Slaughter. The wheel of time spins rapidly 'round, and We were Juniors be- fore we realized it. Ten, we are sorry to say, did not return. By this time we had grown to love old V. H. S. and were ready to uphold her standards. We immediately began this season by electing our officers: President, Ted Hartg vice-president Grant Batesg secretary, Alberta Rei- chleg treasurer, Marion DuBois3 sponsor, Mr. Pemberton. The Junior play, "Growing Pains" coached by Miss Hare and Miss Wellemeyer, was very successful. It supplied the funds for one of the best Junior-Sen- ior banquets, which was sponsored a week later. We all looked forward to the opening of school the next fall when we would assemble as "Dignified" Seniors. The next fall thirty-eight of the sixty-four, who had started as Freshmen, came back to finish their high school career. The officers for this last year were: President, Mary Garner, vice-resident, Grant Bates, secretary, Bernadine Schafer, treasurer, Clarence Rausch, and as sponsor, Mr. Yonker. The play selected by the class was "Guess Again", which was very successful, and was under the able direction of Miss Woodman. This year has been a very busy one for us all. Besides our regular work we have published the "Echo", the first annual since 1926. We have tried to make this publication a creditable oneg we leave it with you to decide whether we have succeeded. With graduation in view our class chose as its flower the yellow tea rose, class colors, blue and gold, and the fitting motto, "Building for Eternity." As the last few weeks of school approached we look forward to all the happy events which were to be a part of our graduation. One of the outstanding events was the Junior- Senior Banquet on May 27, for which we wish to sincerely thank the Jun- ior Class. Other Senior events were the Senior Day on May 25, Senior Assembly on May 18, Baccalaureate Service on June 5 and finally Com- mencement Exercises on June 8. . In closing I wish to express for the class the hope that thus far in our climb toward a goal of higher education We have cariied on worth- ily the traditions of Vassar High School. Twenty-six
