' ' f if 1 JUNE 1952 YEAR SPENT AT BEHRMAN IS HAPPY ONE FOR EXCHANGE TEACHER FROM ENGLAND By Janet Bond Although she has spent only a few months in Behrrnan as one of the' teachers brought to America under the exchange program jointly sponsored by America and England. Mns. Jesse Ellis has endeared her- self to everyone she has met. The students love her and teachers, principal, and the many friends she has made in and around New Orleans will say good-bye reluctantly when Mrs. Ellis sails in Aug- ust for her home in Batley, Yorkshire, England. "America is so different," Mrs. Ellis exclaimed, her blue eyes twinkling. "But I love all of it? And indeed, by the time she returns to England she will have seen more of America than most of us who are its natives. A young lady of wide interests, Mrs. Ellis has always en- joyed traveling, and has made the most of ner opportunues here in me U1l.ll,CL,l States to do some sightseeing. She has been to Texas and Florida and plans to drive to California in June. Before coming to America and Algiers, she had been to Egypt and India, and had traveled through most of her native England. ' At home in Batley, a small industrial town set in the English rnoors, Mrs. Ellis teaches Social Studies at the Princess Royal School. When asked how American children compare with English -students, she replied, "To me, children are the same everywhere, but I do think that Behrman students are more lively and energetic than the boys and girls in England." Though Mrs. Ellis has only 'been here a short time, it seems that we have known her for years. Her broad, lilting English accent makes her a true "Britisher," but her enthusiam for America makes us feel that her year here has already made her one of us. In February Commissioner Glenn Clasen presented Mrs. Ellis, during an assembly in the Behrman auditorium, with a key to the city. She was :made an honorary citizen of New Orleans. Behrman has been very happy to have you with us, Mrs. Ellis! We hope that when you return to your home in Batley, you will often think of us and remember with pleasure your year at Behrman. SENIOR PROM The graduating class of June 1952 extends to Mr. Steidtmann, members of the faculty and their guests, a cordial invitation to at- tend the Senior Prom at the Skelly Gymnasium on Wednesday, .Tune- 4. 1952 at ten o'c1ock p. m. - it

The party 'Was held in the school basement. Everyone came dressed as Circus perform-ersg there were clowns, a circus band, chorus girls, and even a trained seal. Of course there was entertainment. Each senior had to perform before he received his ring. A famous lion trainer appeared, thrilling the audience as the lion became a lamb. Genuine Hawaiian hula dancers were a treat. Squeals of delight were heard as the snakes danced 'to the charmer's tunes. The Ring Master called out the trainer with his hoops and dogs.' A. human pyramid folloiwedg trained horses went through their paces. Singers and dancers enticed many to try their chance at the "wheel of fortune" When all had received their rings, delicious refreshments were served. Unfortunately most good things come to an end, eve-n RING PARTIES. The party ended and mingled with the usual "good night" were the excited voices of eighty-four happy seniors chorusing "Have you seen my RING?" 452
