'Tale ojj the Class ojj ItyLfO
Listen, my children, and you shall hear the tale of ninety-six little diaperers and
diaperettes who toddled into the vast and unknown corridors of the Westwood Junior-
Senior High School away back in the dark ages of 1934 A. D.
With Harry Benedict as its leader and Mrs. Huggins as its adviser the class made
an outstanding debut and started on its career.
Changing to rompers in 1935, the class elected Darrel Wilson for its president and
under his direction it began soaring into school activities.
As the rompers wore out, the class changed to coveralls. Betty Ricks swung the
gavel. The class had its first night party, and the girls gave future jitterbugs their
first lessons in rug-cutting.
As time marched on, the coveralls gave way to knee pants and skirts. Don Prusia
led the class on through spirited high school life. The class gave its first gayly decor-
ated dance this year, 1937.
In their junior year, Harry Benedict joined the class forces with the seniors in the
annual Junior-Senior Picnic and Prom.
In their last year in old W. H. S., Clayton Newman ruled over sixty-nine cultivated
young men and women, ready now to go forward, and prepared to meet many prob-
lems as they go out into the world.

What class is that? Why don't you know, that is the class of nineteen hundred and
forty-one. And let me tell you it is one of the up-and-coming classes of the school.
For two years now that class has won the singing trophy. Their president is that red
flash you see running around the halls so much, Harry Knecht, and his understudy,
vice-president, is Elwood Vierra. The class secretary and treasurer is Lucille McKee.
The class spirit is kept up by Marilyn Bergstrom as song leader, and a double act of
yell leaders, Imogene Russell and Tommie Tipton.
That class has really got the cooperation and spirit and headed in the right direction
to slice the cake of school spirit. Miss Lyon is adviser.
