CLASS HISTORY In September 1951 twenty-seven ambitious but frightened Freshmen entered the halls of W,R, H, S, During our first year we gained Major Buehler and Paul Cornwe l. Later in the year Leonard Fisher and Jack Gillow left us. At our first class meeting on September 14 the following officers were elected: President-Janice Baxter, Vice-President- Karen Northcott, Secretary-Treasurer-Shirley Rickman, and Reporter-Mary Mas sey. Student Council mem ers were George French and Ne 1 Markham. On Initiation Day, in burlap sacks, dunce caps and carrying milk buckets, we were under the control of the Seniors. School started in the next September with the same eager students with Mr. Ben Tice as our sponsor. The following were class officersg President-Gerald Fischer, Vice-Presi- dent-Karen Northcott, Secretary-Treasurer-Janice Baxter, Reporter-Vivian Long and Student Council-George French and Nell Markham. We selected purple and white as our class colors and white carnations as our flower. Our motto was "Truth Gives Wing to Success". The Sophomoregirls were awarded the honor of serving the Junior-Senior anquet. As Juniors, with Mrs. Doris Harder and Mr. Paul Bowersox as sponsors, we were now enjoying an "upper cla'ssman" rating. Our officers for this year were: Presi- dent-Jim Williams, Vice-President-Gerald Fischer, Sec- retary-Janice Baxter, Treasurer-Karen Northcott, Report- er-Shirley Rickman, Student Council-Vivian Long and George French. On December 4th we presented 'Our Miss Brooks", our Junior Play. It was a big success! The first big highlight of the year was the day we received our class rings. We dug deep in our pockets to pay for them but they were worth it. The second and biggest highlight was the Junior-Senior Banquet on April 22. We picked as our theme "Hawaiian Cruise". To relieve our minds of our heav school work we had a scavanger hunt and hamburger tyry. After being stuffed to the brim we went on a hayrack ride. As our final year rolled around we started out with the same number of students. Later on we lost Lester Arb and gained Betty McKinstry. With Mr. and Mrs. Ted Harder as sponsors we elected as officers: President-Jim Williams, Vice-President-Gerald Fischer, Secretary-Shirley Rickman, Treasurer-Karen Northcott, Student Council-Janice Baxter and George French. Again on October 12 we dug into our pockets to pay for our enior pictures. To increase our ankroll we had two paper drives to pick up magazines we had sold our Junior Year. Another chance at acting came on December 3rd when we presented our Senior play "Finders Creepers". The yearbook staff was appointed and began work on the second "Bulldog" annual. On April 26, dressed fit to kill, we were guests at the Junior-Senior Banquet. Bright and early the next morning we loaded ourselves into the bus and were off to Rockaway Beach. On Thursday, May 19th our high school days were brought to a close by the Commencement Exercises. Thus leaving twenty-five graduates each going' their own way. ., ,, .U 1 fe fitffizkff ffl' ,Q -wi: -ge? , ,.,.... , .,,.., .,,. , ,,.,, N., ...,,,. A ,,..,,,,,,,. ' f J f if 213
