HISTUIQY DI: Tl-IE SENIDID CLASS
September 1926-Three cute little girls and four cunning little boys wan-
dered into Mrs. Davis, room in the old school on Academy Street. They
were unaccustomed to the ways of school, but under Mrs. Davis, excellent
instruction were soon able to progress into the second grade. These children
were Luella Sprague, Marion Miars, Roderick McLean, Stuart Allen, Robert

September 1930-When we returned to classes the new school awaited us
with Miss Thelma Hingre as our instructor. Norma Jane Evans and Helen
Sullivan now joined our ranks with Emily Hetzinger and Lester Chamberlain
coming from Sangerfield to enlarge our original class to thirteen. The first
part of the year our room was on the east side of the building facing Staf-
ford Avenue but in the middle of the year we moved across the hall to re-
main the rest of the time in that room which is now the regular fifth grade.

pupils who started school together at Deansboro. Besides these there were
Isabelle Cichon and Marion Day. Edna Quillman, Hulda Zweifel, Ruth Og-
den, Donald Williams, and Gertrude Lloyd who also joined when the Deans-

we had a very enjoyable year. Our class was divided into sections with Miss
Simmons and Miss Heckert as our home room teachers. In June we had a
banquet in the homemaking rooms.
September 1934-At last in high school we proceeded to enter into all social
activities that we could. The new recruits this year were: Francis Jory,
Rosemary 0,Dowd, and Rachel Henry.
September 1935-We started off with a bang with two new members: Ruth

a uGeorge Washingtonii Hop and it was a big success.
September 1936--We were all together in one room this year. Two addi-
tions to the class were Dorothy and Donald Beha who came from West Ley-
den. Almost as soon as the year began we started talking about getting
junior rings. We got them the latter part of April and we were very pleased
with them. On May 9 was our Junior Prom which turned out to be a huge
success. As is the usual custom we put up a dummy for the seniors to take
down. We juniors were the victors because we warded off the seniors all

For one week in the late spring of 1963 there was flashed across the country
by all the wireless stations of the most outstanding cities of the U. S. A. and printed
in the personal columns of the most outstanding newspapers, an urgent message made
by a wealthy, but eccentric elderly gentleman. In part, it was as follows, MClass of
,38 of W. C. S., where are you all? Drop a line to me about what you are doing or
let me know about the others. W. B. Pat, 410 Thurston Road, Rochester, N. Yf,
Within twenty-four hours the gentleman was receiving response by mail, tele-
graph, and even by his television-phone.
Among the replies he received were these which follow:
Mrs. Allen wrote that her husband, Stuart, had been named the champion potato
grower in the country and that he owns a farm in Sangerfield. He is said to have
raised potatoes of incomparable size.
Mabel Angier, in her telegram to Mr. Pat, informed us that she was instructress
in an exclusive girls, school located in Oneonta.
One of the most outstanding students of our former senior class made a personal
call on Mr. Pat and told him that he had received a contract as language teacher of
Waterville .High School with Monsieur Wilcox as his faithful assistant, Billy is
noted for his beautiful "mots d amour" which he utters to his female pupils.
Due to the fact that Mr. Beha is vitally concerned with the grasshopper plague
which is affecting every farmer throughout the country, he is unable to answer the
message which Mr. Pat has sent. But his assistant writes that he is very successful
as the head of the Department of Agriculture at Washington. We certainly hope
that you are successful in doing away with the grasshopper plague, Don.
Gertrude Lloyd and Emily Betzinger have retired after an outstanding career of
singing and dancing in a French Casino and they have received part ownership of
Our hero, Lester Chamberlain, who has successfully reached the top as champion
prize-fighter need not reply to Mr. Pat's announcement, for his picture has covered
the front page of every outstanding newspaper of the United States.
Word has reached Mr. Pat that Isabelle Cichon is living in the very depths of
the African jungle. Her soft voice is soothing to the natives.
Mrs. Johnson, commonly known to her colleagues as Marion Day, is now in the
midst of her term as governor of Texas. Show them your authority, Marion.
By our recent means of communication, former Miss Norma Jane Evans sends the
following message: "My husband, Francis Jory, has been very fortunate this year in
obtaining a medal declaring him champion of the orange growers of Californiaff Her
husband, unbeknown to her, encloses the following statement about his wife, Norma:
'fln spite of all my persuading she persists in following her usual occupation of pros-
pecting for goldf,
Rachel Henry says that she is enjoying her married life in Morrisville with her
husband 'tAl,,' or uDoc" for short.
Ramon Iles is now the only remaining individual who understands the Einstein
Theory of Relativity.
A clipping was received, by mail, stating that the temperamental actress, Phyllis
Hinman, was residing at Beverly Hills and was said to have been the best dresser
The manager of the International Basketball squad notified Mr. Pat that his
team, Lynn Williams, Roger Jones, John Kelley, Robert Lally, and Donald Williams,
had had a successful season and they wish to send their regards to the rest of the
class of '38.
Dorothy Beha writes that surely Mr. Pat realizes that she is the famous clarinet
player on Uncle Lukeis EZZ Program.
Frederick Helterlineis wife, Shirley, television-phoned that Freddy is a Supreme
Court Justice and has all the police officers of the land at his beck and call.
Mildred Klotzbach wired that she waited two years after graduation before she
married George MacConnell and then settled down with him in the thriving metropolis
Roderick McLean wired that he had taken over the McLean Undertaking Parlors
but that his favorite pastimes were the fairer sex and engineering.
