CLASS HISTORY Since everything has a history, our class has one. Maybe it is not long as histories vo, but a great many things have happened in these few short years. It was in 1932 that a group of kids started off to school for the first time. Some looked forward to it, some dreaded it, but all learned to enjoy it. Our kindergarten teacher was Miss Congelton, who got us off to a good start. We all remember the little naps we took each day, the weird pictures we drew, and the fun we had at recess. About this time there was a presidential election in this country and as we had strong political feelings, we had big parades on the playground each day. The man who happened to be our favorite was Roosevelt and we were all very proud when our man won (and stayed there!) In the second grade it was said that our teacher, Miss Hubbard, went hunting with a sawed-off Tommy Gun. We were afraid to go into the third grade because rumor had it that the teacher had a long black whip and that anyone caught misbehaving was given twenty lashes. However this, as most rumors, turned out to be false. As time passed, we advanced merrily through the grades. If anyone was backward he was sent to Miss Neff, who tried to raise the LQ. above sub-normal. We learned history from the stern but likeable Miss Stoudt. Soon we jumped to junior high. Two teachers, Miss Frazier and Miss Ullrich, gave us a big push and we landed fine. That first year we were in everyone’s hair. We were only freshmen, the lowest known living form of high school student. With Miss Inskeep we tramped hither, thither and into Happy Hollow, looking for beetles, moss, and butterflies, but finding poison ivy. Various gym teachers converted us from ninety-seven pound stripplings to ninety-six pound weaklings. Miss Merritt gave us our first taste of algebra, and some of us thought it tasted sour, Our crowning achievements of that year were our plays Big Time and Pampered Darling also Mystery at Eden. Our next step was a weary one up that Jong hill to the school in the clouds, West Lafayette Senior High School. Most of the happenings here you will remember, such as the scrap drive in our junior year where we were nosed out by seventy-four pounds by the seniors. That was because one of their beauty queens got lost in the scrap pile while getting her picture taken, and she didn’t find her way out until three days later and by that time the scrap had been weighed. In our junior year we gave a play that labored under the title of Too Many Smiths. As the name suggests it had an abundance of people by the name of “Smith”. During this year we cheered our football team to an undefeated season. The last year in school is not very different from that first one—the year in kindergarten, except that the naps we take are ended by a teacher instead of started by one, the pictures we draw now hear some resemblance to what they are intended to be. We have just as strong political feelings as we had in kinder- garten. Some of us hate to leave the scene of so many happy experiences, others have had their coats half way on for the past two months, but all of us admit it was a ! 8) fer] good time while it lasted—this being youn Page ten
