ur our ears ofa iqhu It undoubtedly was a bright, golden morn in September when the Class of l9L5 entered the portals of high school. We admit we were ignorant and unalarmed at the prospect of the next four years, but we rushed forward to the library and under the competent supervision of las. Hauser began our Freshman year. There were thirty-five members of our class and actually more boys than girls. The first task before us was to elect class officers and so with the air of great politi- cians we held the election. As a result, Leslie Holcomb was elected presidentg Georg- ette French, vice-presidentg Marjorie Terns, secretaryg Richard Morse, treasurer, and Dietrich Weinauer, Student Council Representative. Our first chance to show what we could accomplish came forth in the magazine campaign, in which we received top honors and a five-pound box of candy. Next was our movie,WThe Ghost Goes Westn, which netted us a goodly sum. We drew up our constitution but have been unable to locate it since our Sophomore year and because we have had no rules to guide us, perhaps we may be excused for our actions in high school. On Class Activi- ties Night we dressed like babies and were very thrilled when our boys outplayed all the upperclassmen. We also sponsored a St. ValentIne's Dance during the year. To bring an end to our first year in high school we went on a picnic at North Lake and then rested at the Hunter movies. Thus we reached the end of our joyous Freshman year. As Sophomores, in the fall of l9L2, we chose Richard Morse for presidentg Georgette French, vice-presidentgGwen Munson, secretary, Rita Kupka, treasurer, and Leonard Hum- phrey, Student Council Representative. With a class of sixteen boys and fifteen girls and Miss Goslee as our class adviser, we again were victors of the magazine campaign for the second successive year. The NU.S.A. Dancen we held chalked up another success for the class of l9h5. All who came dressed in red, white, and blue. The biggest thrill of the year was when we received our class rings. We also put on a play in assembly, 'The Pursuit of Happinessn, under the sponsorship,of the guidance department. our activities were limited during our Sophomore year as a result of the war but we bought war stamps every week and contrib- uted whole-heartedly to Russian relief. And so we came to the end of a happy Sopho- more year. Our Junior year was a success from all angles. Our class officers for the year were Richard Morse, president, Rita Kupka, vice-presidentg Gwen Munson, secretaryg Barbara Gooss, treasurergand Rita Kupka, Student Council Representative. With these competent leaders of the class we sailed forth into a prosperous year. Working as an industrious class of twenty-three students, we edited WThe Blotteru. We had our troubles but still made a good job of it. We selected the movie 'It Started With Even to present at our money-making assembly. We collected scrap paper all year and tried desperately to collect the most paper, but in vain. We did receive honors in second place, though. Our 'Garden of Memoriesn Prom held in honor of the class of 19th was a great deal of work and was enjoyed by everyone. An unusual feature in the decoration was the rock garden in one corner of the auditorium. The prom ended our Junior year which was the most enjoyable and profitable year of our high school life. We came back to school in the fall of 'hh bubbling with enthusiasm. The class had di- minished to fifteen girls and only ten boys. Richard Morse, James Elbrecht, Harold Tompkins and Paul Adams graduated in January, which left only six males in the class to complete the term. At our annual election, Donald Johnson was chosen presidentg Rita Kupka, vice-presidentgGwen Munson, secretaryg Barbara Gooss, treasurer, and Geor- gette French, Student Council Representative. We sponsored the NSenior Strutn in December just before Christmas. The class also presented the movie, 'Mr. Big.' We also sold refreshments at two basketball games and Class Activities Night. On this night the athletic members of the class showed their ability. The girls of the class dressed as boys and the boys dressed as girls. Easter came and eighteen members of the class journeyed to New York. As June drew near we began to realize that our high school days were coming to an end and our close associations with Miss Goslee, who had been our class adviser since our Sophomore yean would be severed by the termination of our high school career. We will never forget our graduation festivities nor the strains of the Alma Mater as it echoes.w1thin our hearts. 16
