1 1947 ANNUAL 1 SENIOR CLASS HISTORY 1943 - 1944 In the fall of 1943, 29 students came back to school, after their summer vacation, ready and eager to work. These 29 students, consisting of 17 boys and 12 girls, were to become Freshmen that year. There was no doubt in anyone's mind there was a great future ahead of this class. For our first high school class advisor we chose Miss Kalkas. We then elected Phillip Matteson, president, Carl Slater, vice president, Pauline Irvin, secretary and treasurer, Jim Blough and Dorothy Cherry, members of the student council. - We had several parties during the year, the first being an initiation party given us by the Sophomores. This first year we were very active in school. Most of our girls be' longed to the R. C. H. Club. Jim Blough belonged to the musical branch of the school. Carl Slater, to the Varsity "C" club and Eugene Sigler, Carl Slater, Robert Anshutz, Frank johnson, Harry Leaman, Lowell Col' lins, Clifford McVey, and jim Blough were members of the basketball and baseball teams. Bob Fry also played on the basketball team. Through the year we added four new members to our class. One girl, Donna Lewis, and three boys, Roy Lucas, Raymond Graf, and Paul Par' sons. This gave us a total of 33 members, but much to our dismay, we lost 10 members by the next fall, leaving us with only 23. Soon the year came to a close and we were glad for summer to come again. 1944 - 1945 Coming back to school in the fall of 1944, we acquired seats in the study hall, much to our liking. D Choosing Mrs. Baron as adviser, we elected Roy Lucas, president, Inn Blough, vice president, Paul Parsons, secretary and treasurer, Mary Henderlong and John Dyck, student council. We added three new members this year--Frances Haley, Elmer Sher' win and Robert Miller, but lost them along with eight others by the next year. This left sixteen hard working members in our class. . As this year came to a close, we were eager to occupy the middle of the study hall as Juniors. h fPage Thirtee-nj

I 1947 ANNUAL 1 1945 - 1946 September 9, 1945, proved a great day for sixteen ambitious Juniors. Coming back to school we welcomed two new members, Kent Ripley and Norma Sonnedecker. ' With Mr. Arva as adviser, we proceeded to elect officers: james Blough, president, Kate Murray, vice president, Pauline Irvin, secretary, Phillip Matteson, assistant secretary, Donald Reese, treasurer, and Kent Ripley and Norma Sonnedecker, student council. We raised money for the banquet, to be given the Seniors, by selling Christmas cards, having bake sales, and picking up potatoes. Un April 5, we gave our junior class play, which was a great success. After our presentation of "Kay Beats the Band", we were given a dozen white carnations which were much appreciated. After our work we all enjoyed ourselves at the Iunior and Senior ban' quet in May. We ordered our class rings and sweaters. We received our rings in June, but our sweaters did not arrive until the following fall. 1946 - 1947 At last we are Seniors. Can graduation be far in the future? As officers for our last unforgettable year in school we chose the folf lowing: Kate Murray, president, Dorothy Cherry, vice presidentg Pauline Irvin, secretary, Mary Henderlong, treasurer, Marjoie Mulhollan and Roy Lucas, student council. Mrs. Bibler was chosen to advise us. After receiving our class sweaters we were known far and wide by the bright blue color and the emblem designed by one of our more artistic members. On November 14, after many evenings of practice, followed by sleep' less nights, we successfully gave our Senior class play, 'lEverything Hap' pens to Us." Working hard to raise money for our trip the months will soon roll by and we will find our school life over. Cur enrollment has now come to a total of fourteen, nine girls and ive boys. But as we leave our beloved school, you will find many traces of us. just look on the top of any desk in the building and there you will find along with many others, our scratches and cuts. -Corrine Kaufman. fPage Fourteenj
