SENIOR CLASS West Lafayette High School May 30, 1939 0VER FOUR SCORE GRADUATE TREK THRU MORTON IS RECORDED AS HIGHLIGHTS STAND OUT IN MEMORY OF CIASSMATES Forty-four of us wondered if our world was coming to an end as we walked timidly into the overcrowded kindergarten-room. It was not long before Bud Shively found all of his prob- lems solved by Virginia Vestal's hand as the roll was called. Rob- ert Kraybill was always "pres- ent" instead of "here", Bob Parks, Charles Lewis, Warren Gabler, Gordon Erwin, and Norm Hill were too busy watch- ing teacher to realize that it was their turn to answer the roll. They finally woke up to realiza- tion with their first blush, and it wasn't their last, either. Polly Prentice, Jim Oswalt, Jim Smith, and Dick Wiley seemed to start immediately to take advantage of the trip home across the cam- pus. Bill Van Camp soon made Fran Lloyd blush, and she hated him for it, but that suited Mar- tha Lommel fine. jane Humph- reys, Harrison Reed, Dick Himes, Max Puckett Cbashfulj, Barbara Lupton, Max Hockema, George Hoffer, Floyd Sterret, Eugene Wood, Helen Zeigler, Hazel Topping, Dale Anderson, Virginia Fox, Betty Doddridge, Barbara Ford, Dick Ham, Alma Chaffee, Jim Gaylord, Ann Ep- ple, Leroy Compton, Eleanor Acheson, Eloise Capps, Clarence Burkenpas, Finley Hamilton, Dorothy Mae Brown, Paul Brady, and Jeanne Anne Burk- holder were the rest of the group that were introduced into socie- ty in the memorable year of 1927. Since we were obviously a most brilliant class from the very beginning, it wasn't long before we were promoted to the higher levels of learning-the first grade. Anna Deane Ramsey came into the class at this time along with some other cravers of education. She had long blond hair that was too great a temp- tation for the boys. Mildred jor- dan and Roberta Walker were added to the "Cross Campus" gang. Bob Underhill, Marian Jackson, Bob Riley, Bob Lides- ter, Dick Douglas and Frances Burkhart added their bit to the class and started right off to oc- cupy front seats. Poor "Doug" didn't like the school or anything about it, so cried all the way to school every day. Betty Dodd- ridge had to stand in the corner with shame written all over her face for talking to Bill Van Camp. Eugene Wood looked like a very promising barber when he innocently cut his hair in school. It W8Sf1,t very even, but we will have to give him credit for at least trying. By the time the second grade was reached, the class, as well as its occupants, had expanded so much that about twenty-five of us were shipped abroad. It was a sad departure, and everyone recovered except Frances Burk- hart. She left the school and didn't return until later years of our life. The third grade brought Ever- ett Peterson from Battle Ground and Jean Ainsworth from the class ahead of us on account of illness. The class felt very proud when Marjorie Bollman and Bob Hass made their appear- ance and provided the class with some brains, not that we weren't quite smart already, but they did help. Others to join our large and happy family at this time were: Don Heine, Ruby Ross, and Ed Edwards. At the begin- ning of the second semester, we moved into the new Morton Building bubbling over with cur- iosity and pride. Again "Doug" stepped into the limelight but not with tears in his eyes this time. His tongue was always hanging out and generally point- ed in the direction of teacher. And remember the day he donned teacher's raincoat, ga- loshes, and umbrella and gave us a most enlightening style show? It was during this year that we made our stage debut. We pre- sented the play Betsy Ross, with Ed Edwards as George Washing- ton. It was here that Ed got his first desire for the Presidency which we finally gave him in his senior year. By the time we were ready for the fourth grade, we felt quite grown up and very full of knowl- edge. This year Faith Wayne came from Boswell with beauti- ful long black curls that were the envy of every girl and the delight of every boy. Howard Lloyd, William Werner, and Betty Lou Duncan also joined us this year. Remember the big box of candy that Betty Lou got for letting her finger-nails grow? After that the whole class tried it, but the candy didn't come in as fast as we had expected and it wasn't long before we I Continued on page 201 PA! I l'Z I
