M , 34 3 1929 L ECHO 1929 x Junior Class History Because of its position, the Junior Class is probably one of the most important organizations in school life. We are not burdened with the dignity of Seniors, nor have we the greenness of the Freshmen, we are not wise in our own conceit as the Sophomoresg we are simply dear delightful Juniors, with not a care in the world but to make ourselves happy and to contribute to the happiness of others. But we were not always so. Just three short years ago, we too were Freshmen. At this writing, only a few factors stand out as worth recording. Among others are the shyness and awkwardness we showed. Contrasted with our present status, you will have to marvel at the great change. Self-confident and self-possessed, we have lost that self-consciousness which marked us in 1926. But even then, we filled a place in the school. Did we not furnish the humor-brightening the dull days and making still more cheerful the bright ones. Yes, we strove hard in our scholastic work and in all school activities. Our Sophomore year was a repetition of our Freshman year. We led the school in scholastic workg we led in athletics, we led in dramaticsg we were school leaders- although too modest to proclaim the fact at the time. We were building for the future and our foundations were broad and deep. The year we are now concluding-our Junior year--gives others a mark to shoot at, an ideal to strive for. We have been busy every minute of the time. The Juniors initiated the Umovie benefit" now so popular with every school and town organization, the Juniors pushed for and gained the adoption of a standard class ring for the entire school thus eliminating the annual squabble over class ring designs. The Juniors as a class sponsored a Thanksgiving party which was a "wow,'. We have worked hard for candy sales. As usual We have kept abreast of the times in scholastic Work and few if any Juniors find themselves on the ineligible list when it is posted by the powers that be. Let us for a moment ask some questions. Who is the leader in the "ag" work, the Young Farmers' Club, and who appears on every judging team-whether it be potatoes, milk, cattle or fruit. Well we will tell you. It's Julian Jennings, a Junior. Who is our elocutionist extraordinary, representing the class and the school in many meets, if it is not Carol Holcomb, the Junior president. And who was the efficient basketball manager and also a player if not "Heinie" Haynes, and who was Heinie's right hand man, if not Edmund Putnam, both Juniors by the Way. Who starred on the girls' basketball team if not Irene Burgess? And scholastic honors! William Tobey is.always present when they are given out. And he is a Junior. And "Swick" Cornish is a hustler, whether it is in the Boy Scouts, which although not a school organization, draws its members from the school. And if time and space would permit, we could very modestly quote accomplishments of nearly every member of the class. But our Junior year is about over. We have won thus far in the race. We look with joy in our hearts for the coming of the Senior year. There is so much to be done and so little time to do it. We will profit by the mistakes of others, who have gone before. As in our three years, we are going to set a record. Yes, we speak with confidence but it is with a confidence built upon the accomplish-ments of three years. We are proud of Naples High. Nothing we do will ever besmirch her fair name. And We want Naples High to be proud of the Class of 1930. Our history is part of her history and it must be a credit to both-school and class. Our history is incomplete for our school life in still incomplete. When completed we feel sure that it will be well done. C. M. H. l27l
