WASHINGTON-CLAY HONOR ROLL
Many people, upon entering and leaving the halls of Washington-Clay, have noticed our
beautiful honor roll, but how many have thought about the work which was put into making
Mrs. Trowbridge is to be thanked for suggesting that some sort of remembrance be made
for the alumni of our school.
A plaque was planned. Mrs. F. L. Nelson offered to do the lettering: Mr. Blair and the
shop boys offered to do the work of making the small wooden pieces for the names. The
P. T. A. paid for the plaque and lately they gave us our beautiful American Flag to hang
Last year there were sixty-six names on the four boards which comprise our plaque. Mrs.
Nelson has completed work on fifty-nine more names, which makes a total of three hundred
and twenty-five names.
The requirements for having your name on this plaque are that you have attended Wash-
ington-Clay and that the person is in the armed forces. The boys whose names are on this
plaque are all over the world now. Some of them missing in action, some killed in action. But
there will always be the beautiful remembrance of those who do come back, and those who
do not, in the halls of Washington-Clay where hangs the honor roll.

The seniors got off to a very good start this year. There are a number of pleasant memo-
ries which everyone will remember in years to come.
At the beginning of the year, the seniors gave a movie and a dance.
The juniors and seniors had two very exciting magazine contests and the loser gave the
winner a party. Most of the students cooperated but the seniors lost. Clmagine thatlj They
had to give the juniors a party.
On February 7, in the afternoon, and February 8, in the evening, the seniors presented a
wonderful three-act play. It was centered around students of their own age and their struggles
to build a high school paper. In the lead we found Fred Netz as Johnny, a typical high
school lad who was the editor. Susan Blake, his assistant, played by Wanda Chapman, nearly
got sent to the "pen". Mr. and Mrs. Clover, played by Charles Webber and Grace Bennett,
made a very dignified couple, did they not? Johnny's friend, Spud, was played by Delbert
Gardner: Henry Quinn, the principal of the school, was played by Walter Burnham and Mar-
tha, a popular teacher of journalism, was played by Ruth Frisz. There was also that southern
gal, Lucybelle, from Tennessee played by Florence DeGrove. Betsy, Spud's sister, was played
by Doris Miller: and Preston Hughes, captain of the football team, was played by Blaine
Cripe. Everyone got some good laughs.
The Senior English Class made up the Colonial Staff, with Evelyn Nelson as editor-in-chief.
It did a very line job this year.
The seniors in the National Honor Society were Grace Bennett, President: Wanda Chap-
man, Evelyn Nelson, Delbert Gardner, Florence DeGrove, Darrell Thompson, Doris Miller,
and Betty Weber.
Grace Bennett was President of Boosters Club: Shirley Smith was President of the Lassies:
Betty Bogue was President of the GJ-LA.: Dale Hertel was President of the Minutemen. Betty
Weber was the only senior in the band: Doris Miller was President of Sub-Deb, and Charles
Webber was President of F.A.A. Paul Jacobs was captain of the basketball team.
The Annual Staff, under the leadership of Howard Couch, progressed very well this year.
Everyone cooperated and had much fun taking pictures and getting the material ready.
The senior play cast thoroughly enjoyed themselves in Chicago March 12, 1945. They
saw the play, "The Ten Little Indians," and agreed that it was worth the unexcused absence.
The class members had a good time Skip Day, participating in varied activities which were
of our choosing.
