Ck. 0 13 E TIME XWW a o 51 ENOUGH Sophomore Class Starting the year with 225 members, the sopho- more class actively participated in school affairs and showed unusual self-confidence and initiative. Show- ing great interest in class and student council elec- tions, they even upset the precedent when a majority of the candidates made campaign speeches in as- sembly. They elected as their class ohicers Harold Hunt, president, Dorothy Lancaster, vice-president, Jean Hosier, secretary-treasurer. Student Council representatives were Paul Engle and Jim Smith. Representing the sophomores' pep, June Limbocker acted as one of our cheerleaders and did full justice to their "vim, vigor, and vitality." The Sophomore Party, October 12, carried out a Halowe'en theme and was held in the Girls' Gym. Blessed with many interesting and worthknowing' personalities, this class did its part towards furthering the cause of "ye olde romance" and social activity in dear old M. H. S. Many was the lad and lass of this "infantile" class that captured the hearts of members of both sexes in the digni- fied junior class and even in the austere senior class. Need we mention any names-Suflice it to say that the class brought a preponderance of short- and-cute members along with a goodly sprinkling of those taller "handsomes" and "pretties." True to tradition of the Sophomore class, romance flowered "after hours" when these younguns, apparently re- luctant to depart from the scene o ftheir valient striving for mental betterment fof courselj, ling- e1'ed in the halls 'till long after the 3:20 bell. The real attractiveness of the feminine portion of the class was represented by Dorothy Lancaster, redhead, who carried off the honor of the "Blue M Beauty Queen" title. Sophomore boys seen either on the basketball court or the gridiron were: Adams, Blazing, Brown, Busenbark, Charlton, Cibolski, Hamlin, Hamm, 51013, Matthews, Oberg, J. Smith, H. Smith, and or . More bare facts: Sophomore members of the Home Room Representative Council were Darlene Johnson, Maxine Garrels, Arylene Hanson, David Holtz, Duane Anderson, Lester Bishop, Norman Woolgar, Bob Cook, and Blaine Thomas.

25 QUEEN of the TIMES V Beauty Queen Everyone likes something new-and M. H. S. people are no exception. Maybe that's one reason why the Most Beautiful Girl contest sponsored by this periodical was such a success ..... but our opinion is that its success was due largely to the lovely candidates who made it possible. But to bc specific, we refer to the winnah, pictured above: that charming, red-haired sophomore who, during one year in this institution has become nothing short of a sensation. . Dorothy Lancaster, the people's choice, has dis- tinguished herself not only as a beauty, but as a ready, willing and able worker for her school. "Dotty" served as vice-president of the sophomore class, and as social chairman for Mr. Mordy's home room. She belonged to the Home-Ec Club and to G. R. She not only carried responsibilities capably but she enjoyed it-or rather, enjoys it. For Dotty really has the proverbial heart-of-gold, and takes pleasure in serving others. But you've heard enough of her "sedate" side- and you'd like to know her personal likes and dis- likes? Well here she is: Dorothy, who likes fun and is fun, who 'prefers sweet swing to a jazz jumbleg who likes tailored clothes and Mickey Roon- eyg who goes in for good books and pastel colors, who is an ardent basketball fan and plays shuffle- board with a flourish, who hikes and dances and bi- cycles and rollerskates like the all-'round girl that she is. Oh yes, Dorothy admits that shc's inclined to think of Life in terms of pltasure-but that's now, for after high-school and college are done, she'll be a superior interior decorator or a dietician. Either is her goal and it is a little soon to have made up her mind definitely. As for the present, which she considers all-im- portant, Dorothy enjoys the distinction of being "Head Usheretteu at a local theatre-one step to- wards Hgrowing up"-a job and money of her own! Space doesn't permit all the nice things we intended to say about her, but we know our Beauty Queen to be a high spirited girl, with a friendly disposition and a smile that the tooth paste ads have been look- ing for for years. We have presented to you, Dorothy Lancaster of the sparkling brown eyes and delightful personality -who we are inclined to feel is just a wee bit shy underneath it all, one of the nicest qualities a girl can have. This year has been a successful and a happy one for her, and she justly deserves and is grateful for the honors we have gladly bestowed. It looks like the coming years will be successful and happy too-but since it is a little early to prophesy, we must say: Time will tell-what we feel certain will be a charming story for Manhattan High School's own Dotty.
