,W ,sv , 5,3 SENIOR CLASS I-IISTORY, I9Lio Do you remember your first day of school? We'll try to recall those pleasant memories for you. Twelve years ago from the various homes in Yates Center came a group of children, a, number of which are a part of the Senior Class of 1940. As we look in on Lincoln School we see some little girls in ruffled dresses around the sand pile. They turn out to be Betty Rae Butler, Bessie Strand, Juanita Sorenson and Martha Millson. We see under Washington School's roof, 'George Woodruff, Bill Lamb, Emerson Tadtman, drawing pictures fwe know not whatj, Cleo Mae Foote, Meredith Mollnow, Helen Mahon, and Marjorie Mathis playing with dolls. We give much credit to Miss Spencer, Miss Greenman, o'ur Superintendent, Mr. Markham, and also "Daddy" Payne and "Shorty" Daniel for starting us off success- fully. Our second year was uneventful except for the learning of reading and writing. The third year is remembered especially well by the Washington school because of the love matches which were begun. Helen sat with prince charming G. C. Currie, Cleo Mae with Jimmie Mathis, and Marjorie with little Billy Lamb. After school a familiar sight was a circle of little girls singing "Georgie Porgie Puddin' Pie" to little George Woodruff. During the fourth year Barbara Abbott joined the Lincoln school and we began the difficult task of learning to go from room to room for different classes. At the North school little George found the going too hard and was forced to leave for the country. When we entered the fifth grade, we were joined by Doris Weide. In 1934, we were no longer merely the sixth grade but we were in Junior High. From that time on we began to take- an interest in all school activities. We began our Junior High career with Mr. Paxton as our Superintendent and Miss Mason as our Principal. How well we remember those entertaining letters read to us by Prof. Allen. We were joined by Betty Chaffin of Independence and our beloved Superin- tendent, Mr. Widner, from Pretty Prairie in the eighth grade. We had many good times and enjoyed our English Club, Beta Epsilon, and our sports very miuch. It was during this time that the Junior High was publishing a newspaper called "The Junior High Outburst". This was very interesting and one of the main characters in it was "Otis Daniel Boom." The fall of '36 found sixty students bustling with excitement because they were entering high school. Piqua contributed to our class the Long twins, Imojean and Ermadean, Lloyd Scheibmeir, and Eugene Dix. From the country schools came Donna Hollingsworth, Verna Mae Peters, Violet Stoll, Mertha Easley, the three Mentzers- Juanita, Norryce, and Ivan, Harvey Klick, Richard Mulsow, Bob Yohon, and, Little George came back again. We started our sophomore year with fifty members who had been successful in passing Latin and Algebra. We were joined by Ralph Weiler, Lee Culver, and the sponsor of our class in both our junior and senior years, Mr. Grafel. The two big events of our junior year were our World's Fair Banquet and our Junior play. We were glad to welcome Norma Kilby, Madeline Strong, Carolyn Gucene, Alice Hoist, Chuck Ragland, and Mr. McDonald, our senior sponsor. We were sorry indeed to lose our beloved Superintendent and friend-Mr. Widner. Others who helped to make our last year a success were Bob Wilhite, Eugene Johnston, Pauline Moorhead, John Shewell, and Alice Stephens. Those who helped us through the difficult times of this year were our sponsors, Mr. Grafel and Mr. Mc- Donald, our Principal, Mr. Gillmore, and our Superintendent, Mr. Lancaster. Special events of the year were the marriage of two popular seniors, Chuck and Norma, our Senior play, Junior-Senior Banquet, our history making U. S. History class, and diplomas! ! Now take heart underclassmen, although you may never reach such a degree of perfection and be as powerful and successful as we, take our career as an illustrious example and strive to emulate our greatness. , -Cleo Mae Foote, Betty Rae Butler, Meredith Mollnow.
