SENIOR YEAR BOOK
under the auspices of the V. M. C. A. of Pittsburgh and the Federal Working Reserve of the State. As many as could accepted the challenge. They were taken to a camp near Harrisburg and given a short course of intensive training after which they were distributed among the farmers of Mercer County.
In the fall of 1918 we started in as usual in September, but bad gone for only four weeks when the FLU appeared in Greenville as in all parts of the state and the school was closed for five weeks.
When we came back we were sad, indeed, for one of our class members, Lois Rromlcy, had been a victim of the FLl Lois was a fine student and popular in the class. Sad also because one of our Faculty, Miss Forster, had also been a FLF victim. Miss Forster had taught some of our class during our first three years and she certainly was a fine teacher and every student was her friend.
When we returned we elected our class officers for the Senior year. They are: President, Earle Hickey; Nice President, Helen Dickson;
Secretary. Wallace Campbell; Treasurer. Agnes Henry.
The war was still raging “Over There” and the High School Students, both girls and boys, were asked to give five dollars toward the maintenance of the various war relief organizations. The response showed the patriotism of our school and we arc proud of it.
We rented the Olympic Theatre for our Senior Class Benefit show and realized over eighty dollars from the sale of tickets.
Our class now has only forty members, some having dropped out each year for various reasons. We are now looking forward to Graduation. A person never knows how much the High School life has benefited him until he is about to leave it. But as Alumni we will watch the proceedings of future classes with interest and sympathy.

SENIOR YEAR BOOK
Our Class History
Our class entered High School ninety-three strong. We were timid and nervous, like all Freshmen are, for the first few weeks at least, for during that time most of us hoys were treated to a free haircut and were otherwise vexed by our superiors. We soon learned our place, however, and after that everything was all right. All the studies were new and mystifying to us Freshmen. We felt out of place among the other classes and made a good many blunders.
The next fall we came back as Sophomores and we felt as if we had grown about two feet during vacation. We were sorry to lose our mathematics teacher. Miss Watson, about the middle of the year. On this account we were forced to end our Algebra classes before the regular time, but the students didn’t protest. In the spring we were all busy gathering specimens for our Botany work, one of the most interesting subjects in our whole course, I think.
When we came back in the fall of 1917, we missed some of the familiar faces among our faculty, but equally good teachers were on the job to take their places. Beginning with the Junior year, each student was allowed to select his course, College Preparatory or Commercial. We also organized our class for the first time. At our first class meeting we elected Earle Hickey, President; Evelyn Saul, Vice President; Agnes Henry, Secretary: Loretta Heilman, Treasurer. To pay the expenses of the class, we
rented the Olympic Theatre and had a Class Benefit show; the profits were over sixty dollars.
There were two main social events during the Junior year. We held our Junior Class dance and it was a grand success. Then in May we held the usual Junior-Senior Banquet. Speeches were made by the Junior and Senior Class Presidents and the members of the Faculty. I am sure that the event was greatly enjoyed by all.
During the year most of the boys subscribed ten dollars to the V. M. C. A. War Work Fund. The girls were anxious to do their part and organized the Girls’ Patriotic Union, a practically new idea, and nearly every girl in our class was a member and helped in the work.
But some of the boys were given the opportunity of rendering further service. In the spring we were addressed at different times by a number of prominent men who challenged all of our boys who were not already employed to join the Boys’ Working Reserve and go to work on the farms
