Number thirteen was to be proved to be a lucky or unlucky number for the members of the senior class. For when they entered the freshman class there were thirteen boys and thirteen girls. For freshman president Mac Steele was elected; Iris Baumgartner, vice-president; Janet Fenters, secretary; William Delaney, treasurer; Mr. Western, sponsor. Cora Mae Roers entertained the calss at thier first party in the fall of 1934. Since we freshmen were not initiated a few thought there would not be enough social life; so Nannabelle Brown was married for entertainment and Roy Biggs found home life more interesting. At the beginning of sophomore year, we lost Maxine Turvey, who entered Jeff. Wandeline Bess moved to West Point; Geneva Burnett got married; Kathryn Bannon, Cora Mae Rogers, William Delaney, and Levada mcDaniel all left. Eugene Jones entered from West Side, James Jones from sophomore class of previous year. During the year came Marilyn Neal and Betty Bell entered from Fowler and East Lynn, Illinois, respectively. Mac Steele and Glenn Davis were elected as leaders again this year with Bill Clawson acting as secretary and treasurer. Freshman initiation was again inaugurated this same year, and this was our first party fo the year. Hallowe'en activities was theme of our first class party held at the home of Wallace Knight. A weiner roast was held at the home of Iris Baumgartner second semester. One of our big events in the junior year was the presentation of our play, "Three Weeks Vacation." All class took part in this either as characters or managers. Since Geneva Lemming, Gladys Davis, Mae Saunders, and Paul Gephart left school for work, only sixteen were left to grace the school walls as juniors when Glenn Davis fell back into the sophomore class because fo sickness, and Maxine Turvey reentered from Jeff. Soon after our organization with Mac Steele as president, Iris Baumgartner as vice-president and Chester Davis as secretary-treasurer; a farewell party was given for Billy Clawson who was leaving for California in hope of renewed health. In March of 1937 Douglas Carlock moved to Williamsport, thus leaving fourteen juniors. In hopes to add to our fund for the junior-senior reception the juniors served hot lunches in January and February. The reception was held at Lincoln Lodge on May 14. A banquet was served first with dancing and entertainment afterward. Fifteen seniors entered their last year since Bill Clawson reentered from California. Alva Bayless reduced the number to fourteen whe he quit. Of this fourteen, four were elceted officers: Bill Claswon, president; Iris Baumgartner, vice-president; Janet Fentesr, secretary; Chester Davis, treasurer. We presented a play in our senior year. The name of this play was "Bashful Bobby." As in our junior year, all the class took part. The juniors gave the reception for us on May 14, 1938. A banquet was followed by games, contests, and a dance, and thus giving us a very enjoyable evening. Baccalaureate services were held at the Methodist Church May 22, with REv. Yocum giving the main address. Graduation exercises were held May 24, at the school building. Floyd I. McMurray, Superintendent of Public Instruction, was the principle speaker of the evening.
