The data--Se tember lO l9L6. The day we th l f u d W
szyegth ggaders. so were nervous and expecting the wogstf S35 afterbgheeflggt fewidzyg is
w c to ecome better acquainted with our classmates, teachers and studies, our fears dis-
appeaged and we embarked on three years or fun and learning which we shall never forget.
just ah6tg1BSS10f L9 Eagan immediately to let everyone know that we intended to be-not
Fno er c ass of llson-but a special one, not to be forgotten for years to come,
8Ye Jackman and Nancy Ullrsy were chosen from our class to help lead the cheers at
basketball games. Don Nuxhall, Ted Burch, 'Booty' Halcomb and Neil Roberts were among the
many who distinguished themselves on the basketball court.
At the dance following the Wilson Carnival, another seventh grader was honored by
being chosen 'Queen for a ight'--Ima Jean Fultz. Do you remember?
In the Journalism field, Ralph Bragg and Nancy Petrlcoff proved their abilit to 'set
words down a little better than most people' by winning first and second prizes Yfrom our
classl in the P.T.A. sponsored essay on haracter.
As for art, James Rourke captured first and second prizes in an art contest spon-
sored by Scholastic Magaslne.
We also, with the help of the eighth and ninth graders, staged a very successful
spring musical. Class leaders in this activity included Norman Coombs and Marilyn Eve,
members of the orchestra.
Do you remember the day we marched down town ln a parade for the school levy! Oh,
our poor feet: but it was worth lt because the levy did pass.
Besides being quite active in educational activities, our class was also ada t in a-
musing ourselves aftar school hours. Many of us attended dancing class at the g.W.C.A.
During the autumn and spring, hayrides flourished. Through the winter, we could often be
found at Potter's Park: where ice skating, skiing and sled rldlng were being carried ou.
After nine Jam-packed months of fun, studying and what-not, school came to a close
for another year and we began immediately to do thlngs which wouldn't be possible while
attending school: going to camp, sight-seeing out of town, etc.
The following September found us again eager to take up where we left off last Juneg
now, however, we were no longer babies of Wilson, but full-fledged eighth graders.
The annual play put on by the dramatics class was aided to success by the following
pupils: fall members of Class of 'A9l Neil Smith, Suzanne Conrad, Phyl is Blair, Nancy
etrlcoff and Joyce Moore.
Our cheerleaders, chosen by the student body were: Faye Jackman and June Hopkins.
Many of us joined Boys or Girls Glas Club and many were already in band or orchestra,
proving that a great many of us were musically inclined.
Among our school worries this year were Snow Bound, finding square root of numbers,
memorizing the names of the LB states and their capitals and, for the glrle, sewing a
prssentable skirt and blouse.
Fifteen of us were chosen for membership in the Honor Society, a coveted honor based
on scholarship, leadership, character and service. Yep, we had 'braine', too!!!
ln the spring, a new Egg staff was chosen as the staff. Many from our class were
plsilchogen to help with t e yearbook, among them: Mary Lou Turnbull, Jerry Fitzgerald,
h le cry.
Y And then, before we knew lt, June was here again, and with it--vacation. Wonderful
vacation!! Time to rest our weary bones and minds for the ninth grade, our last year at
And oh, what a wonderful year it was. Besides our studies. fhlller-dillerel we were
visitors at the County Jail, Municipal Water Works and some of ue to Duffe Mix. Do you
A ain we helped ut on a successful play--'Watch Out For Spooks'. Ninth grade mem-
bers of the cast were Susanne Conrad, Joyce Moore, Edwina Marsh, Sondra Ballenger, Neil
Smith and Phyllis Blair.
Our cheerleaders were Jim Beckett, June Hopkins and Maxine Tirey.
Our varsit basketball team, made up almost entirely of ninth graders, was really
to e. We won the Miami Valley League Championship and set a new Wilson record by winning
all of our league games. The first six on the team were Don Nuxhall, Bob Campbell, Bob
Hasler, Dick Hammond, 'Booty' Halcomb, and Ted Burch.
These games, school dances, and the carnival, along with privately-given parties fur-
nished week-end entertainments for us during the year. And of course, for the more ener-
getic ones, there was tennis in the fall and spring, baseball in the spring, basketball in
the winter, etc.
As Christmas vacation rolled around, we looked forward to ice skating and other win-
ter sports, but, alas, it was an exceptionally mild winter and-no winter sports Ca very
little, if anyl.
After Christmas came January, and with it--exams. Even though we had gone through
four sets of these in the two preceding years, they were still horror-filled or all who
took them. And than, again in June came another set. Do you remember?
The glee clubs, the orchestra, and the band went to ayton in April to compete with
other schools. And they brought home extra honors for Wilson lof course, since ninth gra-
ders were among the m mbers of all four organieatlonsl.
April found us also studying for the State Scholarship Tests in science, English
Spanish, and Latin. The first thgeehpupile ranking in each test went to Miami University
h t o t tate.
ln May to compete with t a res e s
ilson a so had a fine baseball team in 'L9. Leading this group lfrom our classl
were Billy Jonson and Dick Hammond, to name a few.
Suddenly, June was here again and with it-graduation. Saying good-bye to all of our
friends in our three year stay at Wilson was pretty hand: and there was more than one wet
palr of eyes at the graduation ceremonies. Yes we truly hated to leave Wilson, but next
year, as we begln Hamilton High, and all the following years, we, the class of 'b9,promise
to make Wilson proud of us in every way we can. Some of us attaining high honors n this
country and wor d, but all of us living as we were taught at Wilson.
