IO T1-112 1932 BEACON ' ' 1 l l Senior Class History T doesn't seem possible that four years have passed since fifty-nine boys and girls entered the ninth grade. Wfe were a happy group, playing tricks on one another, and telling jokes almost all of the time. However, you musn't think that we had all play and no work, for there was work-a good deal of work. There were our lessons, such as Latin, algebra, English, history and science. Some found these quite a task, while others enjoyed them. We were just beginning to think we were quite an important part of the High School, when the Sophomores changed our opinion very quickly at an initiation party by consider- ing us merely hoboes. This was rather depress- ing, but we soon recovered at the thought that as Sophomores, the next year, we could give the Freshmen an initiation party. XrVe also enjoyed hikes and educational trips in this Freshman year. XV hen we reached our Sophomore year only thirty-five of the original iifty-nine members remained. The first big event that took place in this year was sailing off on an initiation party for the Freshmen with the guests dressed as "gobs." VV e also had hikes and educational trips this year, as the year before. About the most inter- esting of our trips this year were the train trips to Harrisburg and Gettysburg, and the bus trip to Philadelphia to see Shakespeare's play en- titled "Twelfth Night." In our junior year there were thirty members in the class. This year we gave our play entitled "Safety First." The characters in this play wereas follows: :lack lVlontgomery .,..i.,. ........,......

During the year Mr. Lantz and Mr. Delp took the history class on an interesting and en- joyable trip through Berks County. Now there are twenty-seven in our Senior class. Since it is our last year in High School we certainly are taking advantage of it. Al- though we enjoyed the other three years, this year is better than all the others put together. XVe had our Halloween social, two card parties, and a Valentine dance which was very successful. , There. was also a Christmas Play entitled, "The Birds Christmas Carol," given in the assembly by our class. During the year the senior bookkeeping class went to the New York Stock Exchange and other places of interest with Mr. Naylor in charge. The Physics class had a unique lesson in the form ot an experiment on sound, performed on the playground. Practically all of the class went to Philadel- phia to see the ship, "Constitution" Included in this itine1'ary were places of interest such as the museum, aquarium and offices of the Stan- dard Accident Insurance Company of America. 'NWC are working on our Senior Class Play en- titled, "Beads on a String." The characters for this play are: Bennie Davis . .,.... . Zezzalee Davis .. ,.,,, Edward VV enrich J. H.

Betty Fox VVe are hoping to present a good play to a large audience. The whole class is looking forward to the climax of our schooling-commencement. XVe are planning a pageant to the honor of George VVashington. On the 6th of June we hope to leave by bus for a four-day trip to Wfashington. Although we are leaving the school, we hope that the whole class can come together again and review the happy days we have spent to- gether inside the walls of XV. R. H. S.
