Climaxing an eventful year, the senior class presented their annual carnival, 'King
Neptune's Festival' on March 5, at W.T.H.S.
The chain of events during the evening led to the coronation of the king and queen. For
a week preceding the carnival, jars were placed in the corridor, encouraging students to
vote for their favorite. The larger net returns from the carnival showed the king and queen
contest as high. The total receipts amounted to 3185. The victors in this popularity race
were Ioan Kray of the junior class, and Burt Fangel of the senior class. Presenting the I
awards in the above picture is Sally Eaton, secretary of the class of '49, and Bob Webb,
prexy of the senior class.
Some of the reasons for the cash gain of S400 are these: the ship's store, the fish
pond, Sambo game, dart and balloon game, bean guessing contest, and the cakewalk. Others
were: Fortune telling, fudge sale, galley, house of mystery, and pitching pennies.
For the second consecutive year Waterford's residents have turned out to make the
annual senior affair a huge success.

Splashing happily in the clear blue water, the swimmers of Waterford Township High
School learn the "do's and don't's" of that great sport. Cooperation and friendly companion
ship helped to make this course an enjoyable one and well worth taking.
Seen above, in the first production of the year, 'Inner Wi1ly," are from left to right,
Bev Coopes as Aunt Louise, Bob Brown as the 'Inner Willy," Bob Webb as Willy and Joyce
Mayo as Aunt Hester.
'Inner Willy' was a hilarious comedy in which Wil1y's aunts tried to keep him under
their feathers. Willy's conscience, Inner Willy, protested. In the end Willy wins out.

WA - T0 - HI - SE STAFF
The staff of the Wa-To-Hi-Se is, left to right, front row: Jean Allen--Art Editor,
Martha Reaves--Third Page Editor, Beverly Coopes--Second Page Editor, Betty Fowler--
Editor-in-chief, Robert Webb--Sports Editor, Peggy Keasey--First Page Editor, Thelma
Lewis--Girls' Sports, Floyd Beauchamp.
Second row: Ardythe Sutton, Bonnie Graves, Beverly Bugg--Exchange Editor, Norma
Geror, Mary Lou Falkner, Barbara Lesar, Charlotte Johnson, Dorothy Mackinder, Miss Day,
Jack White--Associate Editor, Kenneth Leslie, Betty Hagerman--Copy Reader, Joan Slygh,
Barbara Zoch, Normagean Terry, Ronald Grover--Business Manager. Evelyn Teasley, Lois
Ealy, Janelle Anderson, and Marvin Olvin were camera shy.
Struggling to meet a deadline, the twenty-five members of the Wa-To-Hi-Se staff
managed to issue eighteen editions of the school paper, as well as to study the fundamentals
and history of journalism.
The paper registered in a big way with the students at W.T.H.S., mainly because of
the new method by which it was printed. This method, offset printing, in contrast to last
year's mimeographed Wa-To-Hi-Se, was provided by the General Printing and Office Supply
Company in Pontiac.
In the line of book-work, the class undertook the history of journalism from Caesar's
"News-Letters" to the modern "Daily Blast," and also a study of the principles of modern
newspaper writing including features, news articles, and editorials.
Several outside activities occupied the journalists time, among these being a trip to
General Printing, a visit to the University of Michigan on May 13 to attend the Michigan
Interscholastic Press Association Conference, and the amiual Journalism Banquet to honor
the departing members of the staff.
Special features which added to the quality of the paper include the clever art work of
lean Allen, 'News in Brief," short items of interest, "Stuff and Nonsense," a humorous
group of newsy articles, and 'Bobby B1uengold," a column written by Bob Webb.
