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
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
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
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
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.
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
