SENIOR HISTORY Back in 1936, 147 of us pranced to jun- ior high the first day with light hearts and heavy books feeling very important, but for some reason we weren't treated that way by the rest of the students for we were only seventh graders. We soon learned our assembly manners, our hall etiquette, lock- er technique, cheered, yelled, and sang for our Crusaders, as likewise we expected oth- ers to do when we got big enough to rule the roost. In our freshman year forty new mem- bers joined us. The Lions Junior Award, a desired honor, was presented to l2 of our group: Joanne McGeorge, Barbara Mitchell, Virginia Slothower, Betty Slinker, Glorene Titus, Catherine Murphy, Bob Ready, Franc- is Carr, Richard Parkis, James Gallemore, James Miller and Horace Yates. Time marched on, and before we knew it the title of sophisticated sophomores was bestowed upon us, because that's all we were-just sophomores for one whole year. Don Denny, our Ark Valley football flash, helped make history this year. To start our junior year, we broke tra- dition by shelving the junior carnival and introducing a class play, "Tiger House" which was a financial as well as a stage success, judging from the blood-curdling screams and horrified gasps that emerged from the galleries. In November Bob Ready and Barbara Vanderpool stepped forth to win first and second prizes in the Legion essay contest. Glorene Titus and Bob Ready proudly walked away from the regional music contest in Topeka with highly super- ior ratings. The Junior-Senior banquet and prom was in truth a "Melody Paradise" as we turned kings and queens for one gala evening. And now we're seniors spending many hours burning the midnight oils at our toils. James Gallemore took his place as a third termer when he was re-elected president of our class with Richard Parkis, vice-pres- ident and Jean Reneau, secretary treasurer. Glory gathering rolled on with "Coog" Grim, twice Ark Valley football center, All-State center and first place winner in shot-put and discus. Bob Price wgote the prize-winning Legion essay and won highly superior in voice. Bob Ready was twice named the highest ranking debater in the Valley. Sue Blessington was named the D.A.R. good citizenship girl. K On April 8, a new family moved to town and gave "Footloose", the annual senior class play. Another of our flock, Jack Hollingsworth, was one of the fortu- nate boys chosen to take the Summerfield finals. The Rotary Club and the American Association of University Women have as their special guests for each month a sen- ior boy or girl. Rotary boys were Bob Ready, Jack Hollingsworth, John McCort, Bob Price, Francis Carr, Jack Grim, Richard Parkis, Clifford Wright, Clinton Bolay and A.A.U.W. girls were Glorene Titus, Sue Blessington, 'Virginia Slothower, Barbara Mitchell, Donna Mitchell, Renn Rothrock, Georgetta Hitt, Jean Reneau and Barbara Vanderpool. WAR TIME Where were you on the morning of February 9? In case you can't remember, it was the first morning of wartime. Yes, you walked in the street because Old Man Night hadn't pulled back the curtains yet. You claimed you weren't afraid of the dark-you'd rather walk in the street. And incidentally it wasn't very light on the side walk, was it? - But on that memorable morning there were fewer absentees than usual. At school we didn't see why we had to get up so early. But since it was for National Defense we gladly did it. REGISTER HERE Every morning from 8:11 on, certain students of Wellington High slip into the office to sign the tardy register. Why??? Bad weather, muddy roads, or working, but more frequently everyone knows the real reason was that you were too sleepy to crawl out of bed. I
