Tl: 1' ,1Ia'rrorgPr1y0 si.1'l1'z'11 CLASS HISTORY It was on the first Monday of September in l929 that our class had its real beginning. Now in l94l we find there are only nine members of our original class graduating at V. H. S. They are Ann Earp, Norma Jean Nichols, Avis Bellamy, Vera Rumans, Lottie Schmitter, Lillian Stevenson, Gregory McGinnis, Albert Hendrickson, Billy Woodin Williams. Through eight years of elementary training we struggled until at last we reached a long-sought goal-Versailles High School. We started as insignincant freshmen, but looking over our natural fault of greenness, we organized into a class of which there were ninety. With Mrs. Marriott as our sponsor we managed to elude the scorn of upperclassmen. and with the coming of the next year we ascended to the rank of sophomores, In this eventful year we selected Norma Jean Nichols as the outstanding sophomore to attend the Sophomore Pilgrimage at Jefferson City, We were well represented in music and dramatics. and a sophomore basket- ball team won lirst-place trophy at Clarksburg. But even with a year so full as this one we kept looking forward to bigger and better things, which we finally did accomplish in our junior year. Perhaps the greatest thing was the purchase of the curtain for the stage in the gymnasium. To pay for this we sponsored many school dances and a stand at the basketball tournament. The Junior play, "New Fires," was a success. with profits totaling S55 to go toward the banquet for the seniors of '39 and '40. Since Hawaii is such an alluring place we chose this type of setting, and the Hawaiian waitresses were the sophomore girls masquerading in grass skirts and leis, Again this year we were well represented in the music departmentg also the athletic department and dramatics. But for the greater part our minds still turned to a farther goalfthe senior class. It was on September 2, 1940, that school opened and we officially received our title of mighty seniors. In this year we perhaps did the biggest things in all our school life. With the Senior carnival we made 3210, enough to finish paying for the curtain. And then we decided to put out an annual, the staff was elected and work progressed. Again this year our class was well represented in extra-curricular activities: music, athletics and dramatics. The Senior play, "Headed for Eden," was presented May l. On May l6 the juniors served us a banquet, and at last the great day came. Our commencement was held on May 22 and our high school life is ended. With memories and regrets we say goodbye to V. H. S.
