SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS Mr. Eddy, sponsor; Tom Bloodgood, treasurer, Ruth Pence, vice president; Marvin Miller, presi dent; and Janet Morrison, secretary. History of Class of 1951 When we were underclassmen, we couldn ' t understand why in June the seniors turned senti¬ mental, and became sad and happy all at the same time. Now we are seniors and we under¬ stand. One day we don ' t think so much about it, and the next day we wake up to the fact that soon we won ' t see so much of those wonderful kids with whom we have spent the last several years. That is the time we forget our chem in study hall and begin to remember. When.Elizabeth Dunham lost all her teeth; George Bradley played the drums for the first grade band; we established our 2nd grade grocery store; the boys were thrilled when Helen Lecklitner played the angel in a play; the fruit showers when we ate all the fruit. Then there were the days when . . . Ginny Barnes was proud of the fact that she was taller and weighed more than any girl in the 4th grade . . . half our class went ahead and left us behind; we played Blackman at every re¬ cess; and we got out of school to hear the Indianapolis Symphony on children ' s day. Then there was . . . the crush that George had on Snookie Dunham; Ginny in blue jeans; all the flowers Art Lemmon sent Helen; that shock¬ ing day when Carol Snelling cut her long pig tails; the time that you couldn ' t imagine Sonny without Linda. There were . . . white mice in Miss Hartman ' s class. Miss Hubbard ' s saddle shoes and long finger nails; snow ball fights; Mr. Allen ' s dancing lessons; the Patrol Boys, with Sonny Miller as captain; the laughs we had when Johnny Jackson caught Sis Bauman with her arms full of books and kissed her. Junior High found us . . . choking over Mr. LaDuke ' s many experiments . . . getting sent to the " inner-sanctum " for talking . . . tea dances with the boys on one side of the room and the girls on the other . . . crowning Bob Hardin King of the Basket ' ' Ball ' ' . . . watching Bob Nichols and Charlotte Wilbur as George and Martha Washington in the Varieties Show . . . sliding down fire chutes. Other things which drew our attention were . . . Mrs. Gowdy ' s Dr. I. Q. programs; the penny carnivals; Mrs. Cooper ' s troubles with Alvin Light and Byron Lutz; those night mixers until 9:00 (really thought we were big!); the lilacs outside Mrs. Leer ' s room in the spring; big safety pins that both held our skirts together and carried our locker keys; art exhibits for P. T. A. open houses; Dick Allen ' s appetite at parties; girls ' basketball; the " Susie Q. " yell; and trips with the B team cheerleaders. Then at last came the year we entered Senior High. Ruth Pence ' s biggest thrill was sitting next to the " team " in class . . . Jeff 13-West Side 0. Lest we not forget . . . Mr. Eddy ' s World History classes (?), and study halls; the girls knitting argyles; the beauty of coming to school when the snow covered the ground; the screams during " The Iron Claw " , and the casual relaxation at the Den; Mary Bayley ' s usual " I bid one no trump " ; Christmas spirit and joy; sweating out Scarlette deadlines; intramural murder in the " Cracker Box " gym; the volley¬ ball tournaments when the Teachers always won; the eager rush to get the class standings; pep sessions on the field; everyone expecting the Seniors to be " so " good; devouring all the magazines in the library; walking on the grass when the walks are slick; summers in the corn fields; the success of our paper drive; the wonderful parties after the Jeff games, and that particular time we had to go to school on Saturday; Mr. March ' s 6th hour " joke class " ; the first time we were in Mr. Hammer ' s office; spring noon-hour walks to the " new " drugstore; and the girl ' s noon-hour sun baths. Then we shall remember.but finally the bell has rung, and I must find a way to appear smart in chem class.
