Four years ago the class of '51 hopped onto a merry-go-round that whirled them
through high school. In 1947, the first time around, found them entering high
school as a bunch of green freshmen. The carrousel fared well with 47 riders and
the proprietors, Mr. Marker and Mrs. Bowman. Engineer was Beverly Trowbridge,
and her assistants were Martin Crofoot, Shirley Weigel, and Romaine Frick. Mov-
ing very cautiously, they received their first jolt at the initiation from the ,48
seniors and the revolving contrivance collected only two scratches during the
year, those being from class parties that were held at school.
Whirling a little faster but still cautiously, they rode into their sophomore year.
This round George Engelhardt took over the engineer's position with the aid of
his helpers-Wayne Beehler, Romaine Frick, and Helen Severens. Again the pro-
prietors were Mr. Marker and Mrs. Bowman. This round two scratches were again
added from class parties.
The merry-go-round whirled at a still faster pace the third time around when it re-
ceived the first big dent from the junior play, "Strictly Formal," and those numer-
able scratches from class parties. Needing money for repairs, they had a magazine
drive, and with the help of chief engineer, Romaine Frick, and her co-engineers-
Wayne Beehler, Cecilia Richard, and juliet Ritschard-they were soon twirling
smoothly and waiting for a rainbow to appear in the form of class rings. Helen
Severens was elected chairman of the prom given for the seniors.
With 34 passengers aboard, the carrousel completed its final whirl in '5l. Among
its scars were found two dents, one from the initiation of the freshmen and the
other from a play that was given in April. For the fourth consecutive time it had
acquired several scratches from parties and had also collected a bit of straw from a
hay ride which was held during the year. The aroma about it had the pleasing
fragrance of baked goods which it had carried for a bake sale. It even bore a few
streamers that were collected from the prom given in honor of the riders. There
was also a bulletin board with snapshots and cards that were tacked on its side
to hold in memory the events of the class trip. They were place there by the head
carpenter, jack Troxel, and his steady-hammered assistants-George Engelhardt,
Juliet Ritschard, and Cecilia Richard. Reaching its final destination at last the
merry-go-round slowed down, so the passengers could get off and end their ride
at baccalaureate and commencement. During the past their characters have been
molded by parents, teachers, and friends, but, now, "In ourselves our future lies."
