1941 Class History
At a long distant time in the dim, dim
reaches of the past there appeared at the
beckoning portals of V.ll.S. the now grad--
uating, most high, exalted, and irreproach-
able senior class. Some 116 gangling young-
sters, still wet behind the ears, appeared, ap-
parently forthe sole purpose of plaguing the
teachers for the succeeding four years. After
reorienting ourselves and being discovered,
either lost, strayed or stolen in various nooks
and crannies in the dark, dim recesses of the
long mysterious halls of V.H.S. we held the
first in a long series of class meetings. VVe
elected Donald Graham president on his
admirable record in Iunior High. Marjorie
Sterett, the editor-in-chief of the book

did not let the golden opportunity pass of
scofling at the "dumb fresh." VVe were well
represented in the school play, having two
of our more able members in major roles.
A sport dance held on March 2 was well
attended. Our president was again Donald
Graham, vice-president, Florence Ridsdaleg
secretary-treasurer, Charles Sweeney. We
were fortunate in having Mr. Iolmson as
our class adviser back in the almost forgot-
ten years of IQQ8-QQ.
Wheii our class returned to the be-col-
umned portals of V.H.S. in the fall of iogo
we had finally grown into our long pants-
we were upper-classmen! Oh bliss, oh joy-
we could hardly believe it. After approxi-
