Our class began with a group of scampering, young tots, way back in 1937. However, due to a short memory, we
will lose ourselves until 1945.
1945 was an important year for our class. We were now Freshman and well on our way to becoming seniors. Our
first class election showed Jane Fenstermacher as class president.
Of course, we were all anxious for our first class gathering, the customary Freshman Party. Ours was held on Decem-
ber 7 in the building of the local Teen-Age-Center.
It seemed our class was just getting acquainted when-bang! We left school for three months of summer vacation.

Upon returning to school we found we were now referred to as Sophomores. With the boost in our class spirit
after bearing that name, it seemed that the members of our class were growing up into young men and women.
This year Leroy Stevens, a young lad from Finland, Penna., was class president. Near the end of this year, an elec-
tion was held throughout the school for a vice-president of Student Council. Richard Wolf, a small but understanding
boy in our class, was elected to help lead the student government.
Our junior year was of course the most important. The junior Play, entitled A Case of Springtime, proved quite
a success, and was very well accepted by the audience.
The junior Prom, held on january 31, 1948, was the first prom ever to be held in the now-completed gymnasium of
our new building. Music was furnished by Hal Haley and his orchestra. Everyone remarked that it was one of the
most wonderful dances they had ever attended.
The class elected Henry Lachman as president. This was the first of his two terms.

At last came the year we had been looking forward to for the last eleven years. We were now seniors.
In the early part of the year, the class showed its power of leadership in setting up a dismissal system that kept order
in the halls. For this deed, the seniors were given the privilege of seniority in the cafeteria and evening dismissals.
The Senior Play, And Came the Spring, given on December 2 and 3, was presented to a capacity audience and was
favorably received on both performances.
The Senior Prom held in the middle of May proved to be the most outstanding event in the history of the class
Henry Lachman was re-elected as class president and Richard Wolf was advanced to President of Student Council.
Betty Grater was chosen as Editor-in-Chief of our yearbook. The Conifer of 1949 will always hold a priority spot
in the hearts and minds of those concerned.
