Senior Class History It was way back in 1942 when we, the class of 1946, became the new Freshman class of West Canada Valley. In number, we were the largest class that West Canada had yet seen, but this large class was soon to suffer the 1oss of many classmates who left school. The teachers that were appointed to advise us were two new additions to the faculty, Miss Flo and Mr. Healey. Determined to make our class a success, we first took the responsibility of electing officers. Norman Frank and Eloise Primeau were elected president and vicefpresident respectively. The following spring, Gene Dickins was proclaimed valedictorian and Steve Mankouski, salutatoriang the plans for our graduation to Senior High were begun. The next year found our class in an entirely different position. We were Sophomores, dreading the day when we would be humiliated by the upperclassmen in the customary initiation. At last this dreaded day arrived, and the boys suffered in women's clothes all day, while the girls wore heavy men's clothing, much to the gloating pleasure of the Seniors. The choice for officers this year was Gene Dickins as president and James Carney as vicefpresident. In the spring of our Sophomore year, our efforts were turned toward a large St. Patrickls dance, which proved a success. Our junior year brought us much hard work, most of which was to raise enough money for our class rings. We held many vicfdances and it was necessary to pay large amounts of dues, but when our rings arrived in February, we were more than repaid for our efforts. Steve Mankouski and Carolyn McKerrow were elected to guide the class this year as president and vicefpresident. At last, in September 1945, our hopes of the past few years were realized, we were Seniors. Now, we were the ones who had the privilege of using the front door, and when we went to assembly, the other students stood until we were seated. Yes, there were privileges for which we waited so long, but when we became Seniors, we were also handed responsibilities that we had never had before. When one becomes a Senior, he soon comes to realize that this is his last year in school, and the year seems to pass almost too quickly. It is this year that a person realizes that the best days of his life are spent in school. In this year we welcomed the return of our supervising principal, John H. Moehle, formerly Lieut. Moehle of the Navy. We soon learned, much to our joy, that we were going to be allowed to take a trip to New York, a privilege of which many classes before us were deprived because of war. This opportunity has brought with it much hard work, however. It was necessary for us to raise money if we were to go to New York. Yes, we have had disappointing moments as well as happy ones, but the truth for which we are most thankful is that we, the class of 1946, will be the first class in many years to graduate into a world of peace and good will.
