We, the graduates of 1951, introduce with pride our Castellan advisor. 
Miss Mary Emma Boggan. 

Miss Boggan attended Delta State Teachers College, Cleveland, Mississippi, 
and obtained her Master's Degree at Columbia University where she is 
currently continuing graduate study in English. 

After Teaching English and Social Science at Aguella Consolidated School, 
Miss Boggan taught for one year at Delta State Teachers College. She came 
to St. Mary's in the fall of 1949. 

As head of the English department at St. Mary's her thorough knowledge 
of her subject, her outstanding ability as an instructor, and her qualities of 
enthusiasm, sympathetic understanding, and painstaking thoroughness have 
enabled us to realize, with enjoyment, high standards of achievement in 
this field. 

Miss Boggan has, with her inspiring example and unrelenting spirit, made 
King's Daughters a worthwhile organization. Through the journalism classes, 
some of her qualities manifested in editing the school paper are reflected 
in the staff. We earnestly express gratitude for her invaluable help and con- 
tributions towards this, our Castellan.

From Point Lookout comes an all-around girl, "Jo" 
Courtney. Participating in many extracurricular 
activities and serving as Senior class president has 
taken much of her time. Her strong sense of loyalty 
and cooperation has made her an outstanding 
member of the school. 

To the Seniors: 

The privilege of being a senior at St. Mary's has 
been a significant experience to me. I am confi- 
dent that this feeling is shared by my classmates. 
As we approach commencement, we are prepar- 
ing for this meaningful ceremony with all the 
enthusiasm and interest that has been character- 
istic of our class throughout the years. 
At S. M. S. we hove become aware of the fact 
that our experience here as citizens is a valuable 
preparation for the responsibilities of citizenship 
which we must ossume outside college life. 

The privilege of serving as president of the class 
of 1950-51 has been a most rewarding one for me. 
Thank you for the complete support that you gave 
to our class program. Your wholehearted partici- 
pation in our many activities made our year a 
great success. As individuals we will remember 
and cherish special moments in our life here. 
Thank you for the memories of St, Mary's.

valuable member of the school.

For four years, Carroll has graced St. Mary's with 
her presence. Her interests are varied and her 
contributions of value. She has majored in busi- 
ness, and, if she so chooses, will odd one more 
good business woman to the world of business.

Lee, in addition to personality, has a great talent 
for music. To call himself a baritone would be a 
self-explanation as he has been classified by 
various musicians as a boss and tenor. The beauti- 
ful voice quality he possesses will not be furthered 
to a profession. The Air Corps has a greater fasci-

Lee came to St. Mary's from Silver Spring, Mary-

Three years of "Andy" at St. Mary's has marked 
three years of contributions. She has done a tre- 
mendous job in the field of art. However, as an 
afterthought, Andy's major is home economics. 
She is a versatile girl, rounding out her life at St. 
Mary's by including athletics and music as her 
interests. Her work with the May Day dance pro- 
grams have been of an excellent caliber. One of 
her big contributions was the aid she gave in 
establishing the Honor System.

In 1947, St. Mary's acquired a green and mis- 
cfiievous Freshman which turned out to be "Bob- 
bie" Gray. However, in the June of 1951, St. 
Mary's will lose one of its leaders who has con- 
tributed much to school life, including the estab- 
lishment of on Honor System. This is the some 
"Bobbie." She has been extremely active in extra- 
curricular activities, such as athletics, Student 
Council, and interschool functions. She majored 
in physical education. Her sense of humor and 
personality will linger in many Sem-Fem's mem-

Towson made a contribution to St. Mary's Junior 
College in the form of Mary Anne. She was espe- 
cially welcomed in the athletic department. Her 
skills and techniques in both class and school 
games have been of the best. Her major is physical 
education but her interests and efforts have been 
applied to many fields. A valuable class member 
and Sem-Fem, Mary Anne plans to further her 
studies to fulfill her dream of teaching phys ed.

Frank, with his wit, quiet manner, and captivating

olso made a reputation for his "little red Ford." 
Always ready to lend a helping hand, Frank will 
be remembered by the friends he has modfe here.

personality and understanding, "Shan" has cer-

vorious other activities, St. Mary's is losing a 
valuable asset.

Hailing from South Carolina, Mary Lib has a 
typical Southern accent. Her dynamic personality 
has won many friends at St. Mary's, even though 
she has been a student here for only one year. 
She does not plan to further her education but 
accept a business position.

St. Mary's claims Beverly as one of its outstanding 
leaders. She entered St. Mary's in the fall of 1948, 
and since then she has made numerous contribu- 
tions. Perhaps her crowning success is the job she 
has just completed — that of Student Council 
President. She exhibited a sincere and cooperative 
attitude while living- at S.M.S. which was responsi- 
sible in part for her success.

Sparks High School sent its wit and humor to St. 
Mary's in the form of Olive Sibley. Perhaps her 
nicknome should hove been "Giggles" instead of 
"Sib." She corried a sense of joy wherever she 
went. Her greatest interest was in the physical 
education department, in which she majored. Her 
participation in varsity and class games was of 
great value to the team. She plans to continue 
her studies in September.

which time she has been a valuable member. Her 
class leadership has been outstanding and her

Consistently on outstanding leader, Bert has been 
on invaluable asset to the class of 1951 and to St. 
Mary's. In the past four years, her personal con- 
tributions in sports, music, and citizenship have 
been particularly noteworthy. Bert has given gen- 
erously of time, effort, and most important of all, 
herself. Numberless school functions have been 
spurred on to successful completion by her un- 
wavering support. Liked and admired by all, she 
stands among those who make St. Mary's what it 


Scored, green, and mischievous are among the 
many adjectives which can describe the Fresh- 
man doss of 1947. During those first few weeks 
we suddenly discovered that St. Mary's was quite 
different from previous schools; with the passing 
of each week, the true value of living in such on 
environment was realized. 

To start off on the right foot, we elected Betty 
Resh as class president. Class spirit was shown in 
all activities, especially when eleven girls, intro- 
duced to hockey for the first time, finished second 
in the school tournament. The only varsity Fresh- 
man was Bert Horsmon. With varsity basketball, 
Bert again represented her doss. In volleyboll 
season, she was joined by Bobbie Gray for the 
squad and by Amie Southall in softball season. 
Bobbie Gray was the only member of her class on 
A. A. Board. Bobbie was manager of modern 
dance for two consecutive years, carrying the May 
Day responsibilities. In May the Freshmen boasted 
one of the prettiest princesses on May Court — 
Olivene Taft. 

An exciting year ended; but summer passed quick- 
ly, finding us back at St. Mory's for our Sopho- 
more year. Olivene Taft was elected class presi- 
dent and did o tremendous job. In sports, the 
Sophs come out on top in the intramural tourna- 
ment, losing only one game. The hockey varsity 
again claimed Bert Horsmon plus Mary Lou Pinder. 
The volleyball team included four Freshmen and 
supplied Betsy Briscoe for the varsity coptain. Bert 
Horsmon joined the realm of those girls who have 
won their blazers in two years. Olivene Taft again 
represented us with her poise and beauty as the 
school representative to the Apple Blossom Festi- 
val. Our attractive May Court members were Betty 
Resh and Caroll Chandler. Then as June and grad- 
uation drew near, many happy memories were re- 
lived. For in the fall some members would pursue 
their studies elsewhere. Yet there were many who 
planned to return to St. Mary's. 
Thus in the foil of '49, there were forty-five mem- 
bers of the Junior class. We had the largest class 
and we kept on doing big things. We re-elected 
Olivene Taft as doss president, placed six of our 
classmates on the varsity hockey team, and sup- 
plied a coptoin, Mary Lou Pinder. For basketball, 
another captain stemmed from us. Bert Horsmon 
and seven other Juniors were on the varsity. Mary 
Ann Harryman, Mary Lou Pinder, and Bert were 

first string forwards and Marion Greenwell a first 
string guard. To repeat history, we again won the 
intramural tournament with no losses. Bobbie Gray 
and Mary Lou Pinder won their blazers and Bert 
Horsmon won the A. A. trophy for 900 points. 
Further achieving in athletics, we placed seven 
Juniors on the eight-man volleyball team. In soft- 
ball, we claimed six out of nine players. How- 
ever, sports wos only one stor in our crown. Bert 
Horsmon represented us as Yeorbook editor with 
Beverly Sewell assisting. These two girls were also 
delegotes to the National Student Association. At 
Hagerstown, Bobbie Gray was elected vice-presi- 
dent of the Moryland Association of Junior Col- 
leges. In May, we elected lovely Olivene Taft as 
our princess, for the third year, on the May 

Thus the third year of study, work, and fun came 
to a close. We looked forward to the fall when 
we would ogoin return — but as Seniors. Joanne 
Courtney was elected to the class presidency. 
Beverly Sewell headed the Student Council with 
Shandren Moore as vice-president. Bert Horsmon 
was president of the Athletic Association assisted 
by Bobbie Gray as vice-president. Suzie Chambers 
was voted head of the French Club. Joan Maust 
was president of Somadra, capably assisted by 
Ann Blackwell. The Home Ec. Club claimed Betsy 
Briscoe os its president. Caroll Chandlar was editor 
of the newspaper, assisted by Joanne Courtney. 
Barbara Burkley wos assistont editor of the year- 
book. So it is obvious that we were o busy group 
of people. In athletics, we agoin took the honors. 
We supplied seven varsity hockey members and 
Joanne Courtney as captain; we also supplied 
six varsity basketball members and again Bert 
Horsmon as coptain. Betsy Briscoe and Mary Ann 
Harryman were our blazer girls. During this year 
we accomplished many things — many things for 
the benefit of our class and school. In December, 
Joanne Courtney was selected to be the spirit of 
Christmas. Then the year seemed to pass quickly 
over exams, dances, and frnally graduation. Here 
many friendships would be ceosed and certainly 
St. Mary's was the place to make true friends. 
Many of us will be out of the state whether to 
college or for other reasons; but in the end, happy 
memories will serve as a source of enjoyment and 
Alumnae weekend will find many bock at their 
Alma Mater.

"Hi, Misty! Look what's here! The latest edition of 
the Alumnae Newsletter or How to be Great in 
One Year. Ruff! Now we'll know how those Seniors 
of 1951 are making out. 

"Grrr! I distinctly remember being called a hound! 
And OS long as I've been stationed here! Why, 
Pebbles, it's just home to me, that's all. 
"Ya know. Misty, that was the some it was to them 
—at least, I reckon so. Hmm— well, anyway, let's 
see whot it says. . . . Look here! In the society 
column, quote: 'Miss Beverly Sewell has just re- 
turned from the Kentucky Derby where her horse 
"Amen" was entered. He placed seventh, with 
only the starting gate lagging in the rear.' Well, 
well, well. Did you ever? . . . And down the page 
bit there's news of her roommate. It soys, 'Miss 
Horsmon oppointed Playground Director at Madi- 
son Square Garden.' Wonder whether she can 
stop porticipating long enough to direct. It'll hove 
to be pretty exciting. . . . Now! Look at this pic- 
ture. Misty. Some bathing suit, huh? And Carroll 
Chandler always seemed to wear them so well. 
Now she's a lifeguard at the Rilz in Ocean City. 
Looks like her friend, Olivene Taft, manages this 
hotel and has employed her to help. Probably 
helps business too, I'd soy. . . . Oh, you want to 
see the sports section. Gee, that ump looks fa- 
miliar. Olive Sibley! She looks baffled. What does 
it soy? She has just remarked that she mode a 
bad decision and had no argument. Surprise! . . . 
What's this? All American hockey team! That's 
Mory Anne Horryman. Now! Some accomplish- 
ment. Think I'll turn back to the front page now. 
'West Point accepts first Woman!' Guess who that 
is. Bobbie Gray. . . . And it says that Joanne 
Courtney is employed here since Miss Chance is 
in the Wacs. Well, we knew that. Nothing new, 
nothing at all. . . . Suzie Chambers. Umm . . . 
Maternity Word. How con she do it? . . . Oh, an 
author was in our midst. That little Southern girl, 
Mary Lib Roseberry, wrote a book called How 
to Become a Yankee in Ten Easy lessons. The 
Burkley twins hove established on exclusive nurs- 
ery school. The one requirement is that all the 


children must belong to alumnae. What a qualifi- 
cation for membership. I don't blame them. Only 
the best, I soy. . . . Oh, Borboro Long is doing 
her internship now to be a dietitian. Good deal 
—more food around. . . . Barb Thompson owns 
her own little place now. It's very Bohemian and 
she's left the originol name there— the Bayside. 
Joan Moust and Ann Blackwell are combining 
abilities for the production of "Forever Amber." 
They soy this is a new type of role for Andy. 
Agreed! . . . Recognition, Misty. She's gotten her 
name in the paper. You know . . . Betsy Briscoe 
who's here cleaning up that store. Well, they're 
telling about it here. Seems they jusf couldn't get 
along without her. . . . More war news. Frances 
Paul hocked her violin to buy a bugle. Now she 
practices every morning at 6:00 at her army sta- 
tion. . . . Oh, My! Talk about surprises? Shondren 
Moore has changed her mind about on educa- 
tion. She's also stopped worrying about not gain- 
ing weight. She's the first major woman jockey. 
. . . Lee Blackistone's still working for worthy 
causes. She was just elected president of the 
Future Mothers of America. . . . Judy Legg has 
used her business training to become a C. P. A. 
(Certified Public Accountant), the only woman to 
attain this position in Denton. . . . Joyce Bedell. 

. . . She's a librarian in her home town. That 
English Lit. must hove mode some impression. . . . 
Look, Misty, we almost overlooked this. Remember 
those boys who used to fly around here in their 
cars and score us out of our wits? It says here 
that Tommy Cook, Carl Merson, Lee Adams, and 
Frank Kauffmon are in charge of War Recreation 
due to their Seminary experience. Boy, I bet 
they're having a good time. . . . Let's see now. 
You know. Misty, 1 think that's all. That covers the 
whole class. It usually takes a class ten years to 
make some accomplishment but the Seniors of 
'51 did it in just one year. I guess we've always 
expected great things of those people. Even when 
they were here they kept things going. Oh, well. 
We'll see them Alumnae weekend. Come on. 
Misty. It's time for our afternoon swim."

A conscientious student who is well known for her 
dry wit is our Sophomore class president, Cyn. 
Being one of our favorite Navy Juniors, she finds 
Navy life the only life for her. She has a very 
active interest in science and French. Due to her 
fondness of roving, Cyn will not be with us next 
year. May the best of luck follow her wherever 
she may be in the future. 


In the post two years at St. Mory's, you have demonstrated your ability and initiative 
in many ways; your cooperative attitude towards work and ploy alike could not have 
been surpassed. I sincerely hope that, in the years oheod, these some qualities will 
bring increasing success and happiness to each one of you.

friend and a great asset to her class. She is a 
great believer in safety in numbers, at least where 
men are concerned. When not polishing her con-

for classes. Our toll blond with the slow infectious 
grin talks a blue streak when she isn't laughing. 
She may be found in the smoker where she ploys

With special interests in art and music, she is sure

•t'j qualify thai countJ. not quonftfy.' Ye», sir, tKot's 
the motio of the Clojs of '51. We hove been the 
wnallest class at S. M. S. for two yeors now but 
that mere detoil hosn i kepi us from being a cla» 
with plenty of steam. 

We entered S. M. S. on even dozen of extremely 
scared fresh— ctl set to get going and prove ihot 
we hove what it takes. Our enthusiostic participa- 
tion in the trodiiionol tolent show gave the old 
girls on idea of the type of ability to expect from 
iheir new freshmen. 

We got busy ond elected our class officers: Becky 
McClymeni was our very able class president; Cyn 
Gard, vice-president; Morgie Wetherill, secretory; 
ond Bev Smith, treasurer. After Bev s departure 
Phylt took over the job of counting money. Fresh- 
man Council members were Joan and Phyll; when 
Phyll resigned. Cyn was elected to fill her posi- 
tion. The doss sponsor wos Miss Reinbold, who 
later became Mrs. Turnburke. 
The next activity which our doss undertook was 
their ottempi to form o hockey teom. Although 
battered and bruised we leorned that *he object 
wos to hit a small, wooden ball, not the other 

Then November orrived, with the inevitoble fall 
production. Cyn Gord, our most dramatically in- 
clined freshman, portroyed Mary in "Jane Eyre." 
As port of the Christmos Banquet, the freshmen 
presented o skit called "Sonlo Visits o Salesgirl." 
Jonuory found the freshmen returning to St. 
Mary's to face their first real exams. This marked 
the end of our first semester at S. M. S. and the 
beginning of another and belter one. At this point, 
we hod lost two of our originol classmates: Bev 
and Mary Louise. We were, though, fortunate tc 
hove two new additions to our class: Koren and 

We all pitched in and turned out a peppy basket- 
ball team. This team could be heard before we 
were seen, due to our quiet plaid uniforms. After 
o tough struggle, we f<nolly took over the posi- 
tion of honor reserved for freshmen— last place. 
Our team captain wos Cookie, also our sole rep- 
resentative on varsity. When cheer leaders were 
elected, Jonie Williams was our indispensable 
contribution to this activity. 

Freshmen were oil eoger porliciponts in the first 
Annual Pageant presented by the Seminary. Each 
girl cooperoted ond corried out her port with true 
Sem-Fem spirit. 

Several of our clossmotes were now struck with 
spring-fever but that didn't homper our historic 
Softball team. The freshmen won second place in 
the softboll tournament. This season will be well- 
femembered because of Yo's strong orm tactics 
and the great sportsmanship exhibited by our 
class. Freshman varsity softboll members were 
Phyll Ames ond Joan Cook. 

May Day was the next student body activity in 
which the (rosh porticipoted. Many of our mem- 
bers were in the "Slaughter" and various other 
events of the day Our princess in the May Court 
wos Winnie Davis who upheld the reputation of 

on outstonding freshman class. Needless to say, 
we were all willing porticipants in the May prom, 
o donee thot the Sem-Fems will never forget. 
Class day impressed each and every freshmon, 
everything from tying doisies at doybreok to be- 
ing capped by an upper clossman. We frosh were 
an extremely sod crew on Graduotion day as con- 
trasted with the thrilling groduates of whom we 
were very proud. The realization that we would 
soon be in their position led us to look forward 
to our next yeor at S. M. S. 

The group of ex-freshmen who returned to S. M. S. 
offer on oil-too short summer were pleasantly 
surprised at finding some new members of the 
"Sophomore Class." Mamie Goldsborough left 
her beloved Eastern Shore to join our class, Ann 
Lawrence also arrived to provide the sophs with 
o Southern belle. This September was the first 
yeor that new girls were initiated. We sophs 
thanked our lucky stors that someone hadn't 
dreamed that up during our freshmon year. Sev- 
erol of our former clossmotes were missing. 
After reminiscing about the good times we all 
had hod, we became serious just long enough to 
elect our new class officers. Cyn Gord was elected 
president; Karen Peterson, vice-president, Phyll 
Ames, secretory; and Margie Wetherill, treasurer. 
We selected our dean. Miss Cunliffe, as sopho- 
more class sponsor. Becky, Bo, ond Cyn repre- 
sented our class on Student Council, Sophomores 
were more than well-represented on A. A. Board: 
Margie, Bo, Becky, Joan, and Phyll were all mem- 

Time to ploy hockey! I All the sophs considered 
themselves seasoned experts. To prove that we 
had become good sports, Petie, Mornie, Dolores, 
and Joon became varsity members. Sophomores 
limped away from their last gome, with second 
place to their credit and lots of spirit, still intact. 
"American Primitive" was Somadra's annual pro- 
duction. Ann was our contribution to this project. 
Next on the very busy colendar of a Sem-Fem 
was our sophomore class assembly, in which our 
class again demonstrated their initiative. The clos- 
ing lines of this program characterized the spirit 
of cooperation, typical of the sophomore class 
of '51. The senior-Sophomore bazaar was a huge 
success this yeor. Sophomore waitresses created 
quite stir with their uniforms— shorts, in the 
middle of winterl The sophs' contribution to the 
Christmas Banquet this year was "How Come 
Christmos?" with all members of the class par- 
ticipating. Basketball season was now well under- 
way with the usual outstanding sophomore sup- 
port. Joan, Bo, and Phyll were members of our 
doss on the varsity. 

We ore looking forword to ihis spring: May Day, 
Pageant, and Class Day ore among the scheduled 
activities. But, more than these events we are 
anticipating thot momentous day in our lives- 
Graduation. Then we will be able to review the 
years spent at St. Mory's with pride in our doss 
and its accomplishments. 

"There'll never be any more like us, so, Sopho- 
mores, hail to theel"

Sophomore Prophecy "*" 0* 


St. Mary's Seminary Junior College has really 
progressed in the ten years since our graduation 
in June, )951. Just in case you hoven't heard, it 
is now a four-year college and co-edocation, no 
less! As we stroll about the grounds and hallowed 
halls, old memories flash across our minds. 
Here's a class in the Science Department of the 
classroom building. Just look at all the new equip- 
ment! Our former class president, Cynthia Gard, 
would go wild in a place like this. Oh, hove you 
heard the latest news of Cyn? After leaving S.M.S 
she took in some college life at Bryn Mawr and 
from there went into nurse's training at Johns 
Hopkins. She's now the Superintendent of Nurses 

The Old Music Hall is rather out of dote by now. 
Remember those wonderful Artist and Lecture pro- 
grams? Let me see — who was that cute usher? 
Oh yes, it wos Karen Peterson. She was married 
several years after graduation and is now kept 
busy raising her family of four boys. In her spare 
time she is the musical advisor for the Youth Rec- 
reation Center near her home. 
Phyllis Ames, our other big family woman, is kept 
pretty busy these days. After returning from her 
tour of Europe, she married and moved to Mis- 
sissippi. When not coaching her many boys on the 
art of football, she is their private tutor in bass 
singing. In her extra moments, she is very active 
in the community social welfare work. 
Our old Social Chairman of A. A. Board, Marga- 
ret Wetherill, is still very familiar to the students of 
S.M.C. She is now the chairman of the Washing- 
ton Chapter of the Alumni. After graduating from 
the University of Miami, she returned to D.C. and 
now leads Washington society. That's Margie— 
"constant partying." 

Let's drop in the rec room for a few minutes and 
ploy a hand of bridge. All we need now is Anne 
Maxwell. Which reminds me — she has come up 
quite a bit in the world. After grasping an educa- 
tion, she went to work for Hutzler's in Baltimore 
where she is now Assistant Buyer. Bo also had 
quite a few paintings in the latest amateur exhibit 
at Walter's Art Gallery. 

Another artistic member of our class, Ann Law- 
rence, has put on o one-man exhibit at the Nation- 
al Art Gallery in Washington. She is now the lat- 
lest rage alonq the Eastern Coast for her torch 
'singing After finishing on engagement at the 

Copacabana in Miami, she came home for a resi 
to Southern Maryland and dropped in to see her 
Alma Mater. 

The new library is the tenth largest in the country. 
The librarian looks familiar. Why it's Margaret 
Goldsboroughl We always knew she would hove 
o career in connection with literature. Marnie tells 
us that she has been librarian for three years, and 
in her quiet moments has been working on a 
novel of her own. Yes, authoress Goldsborough, 
we know it will be a success. 

While strolling through the library, we happened 
to glance at the newspaper. The former Rebecca 
McClyment and her charming husband, the Seno- 
tor from Maryland, were on the front page. The 
Senator is now campaigning for his re-election in 
the fall. We understand Becky has helped her 
husband o great deal by her early political ex- 
periences as a Senator's secretary. 
Walking down the corridor of the women's dor- 
mitory, we decide to stop in for a moment to 
see the office personel. Delores Willoughbyl After 
getting her R.N., she went into the Naval Nurse 
Corps as o lieutenant. Since her discharge, she 
just couldn't keep away from the Seminary and 
hod to come bock to fill Miss Chance's place after 
the latter's recent retirement. 

As we walk through the dorm, something seems 
strange. There is a different air obout the place. 
Then we remember — Dorothy Yoemons. Our old 
New Yorker, Yo, seems to hove livened up her 
home state a bit. Several years ago, she married 
a fellow New Yorker, and since then they hove 
started their own TV network. Yo's pet program 
is called "The Busy Artist Hour" in which she gives 
lessons from coast to coast. 

It's getting rather late and time to leave, but be- 
fore saying farewell let's take a last look at the 
new snack bar for the students. I understond that 
today Joan Cook is in this territory. Cookie, after 
doing extensive work in physical education and 
obtaining a math degree, is now the Finance 
Manager of a series of chain stores. This job re- 
quires her to commute between cities on the At- 
lantic Coast. 

Thus, we bring to a close this extensive visit to 
our dear old Alma Moter. Reluctantly we leave 
S.M.C. carrying with us memories of our Almo 
Mater and old schoolmates. j

JuniorClass History 

Four years ago, our Junior doss was unofficially 
begun. It was in September, 1947 that Charlotte 
Stanton entered St. Mary's as the only sub-Fresh- 
man. In February, 1948, Charlotte wos joined by 
Alice Thompson, and in September, 1948, by the 
official Freshman class. 

Joan Michael was elected President of the class 
for the first semester with Charlotte Stanton taking 
over in February. Alice Thompson was Secretory, 
Locy Rees, Treasurer, and Gail Teese and Betty 
Turner were Historians. 

Betty Turner and Lacy Rees were the Freshmen 
council members. 

The Freshmen were represented by four young 
actresses in Somadro's 1948 foil production, "Lad- 
ies in Retirement." 

For our May Court we elected a proise-worthy 
princess, Catherine Cooksey. 

In September, 1949, we were joined by four new 
girls. We elected Betty Turner, President; Alice 
Thompson, Vice-President; Chorlotte Stanton, Sec- 
retory; and Georgia Bennett, Treasurer, as our 
class officers. 

Betty Turner, Charlotte Stanton, and Anne Tilgh- 
mon were the council members from the Sopho- 
more class. 

Talent from our class wos again displayed in our 
fall production, "Jane Eyre," with Georgia Ben- 
nett playing Mrs. Fairfax and Betsy Wetherill as 
stage manager. In the pageant in the spring 
every member of our class participated. 
Last year we were well represented on the May 
Court by Babbie Gelston and Jimmie Ruton. 
Graduation day arrived at last and all members 
of the Sophomore doss graduated with flying 

This year only three members of our old class 
returned: Georgia Bennett, Anne Tilghmari, and 
Alice Thompson. Under the leadership of our cap- 
able class president, Anne Tilghmon, the Junior 
class took port in the various octivities at S.M.S. 
with confidence end success. Our other doss 
officers are: Barbara Bolond, Vice-President; Peg- 
gy Dinkle, Secretory; and Mary Ann Blake, Treas-

Georgia Bennett was elected Treasurer of the 

Student Council and Alice Thompson, Secretary. 

Other Juniors serving on Council ore: Peggy 

Dinkle, Nancy Butts, and Mary Ann Blake. 

Our class started out this year with nineteen girls 

and two boys — later losing Dottie Morgan and 

Pot Pfoutz. 

Kitty Hoen was the only Junior clossman on the 

varsity hockey team ond Noncy Clapp, the only 

Junior cheerleader. 

In the fall production, "American Primitive," two 

Juniors had leading ports— Peggy Dinkle played 

Kotherine Hopkins, and Lorry Browne ployed Dere 

Hopkins. Charles Donoldson ployed Milch, and 

Georgia Bennett was stage manager. 

A Junior, Anne Tilghmon, olso hod the lead 

speaking port in the Christmas pageant. Our 

Christmas skit, "Why the Chimes Rang' was very 

successful with every member in the Junior class 

taking port. 

We are all now looking forward to graduation 

week when we will be capped by the Seniors and 

will be able to return next fall os Seniors. 


Freshmen Class History 

The freshmen came — wide eyed and curious. For 
most of us, boarding school was a new expe- 
rience, but soon we were made to feel at home by 
the friendly Sem-Fems. During the first week, we 
participated in a talent show given to the old 
students. The campus was now our stamping 
ground, its leaders our buddies. 
One of our first projects was to elect class of- 
ficers. The results were — Jan Chase, President; 
Gail Bowen, Vice-President; Mickey Warden, Sec- 
retory; and Diana Lee Johnson, Treasurer. Miss 
Richelderfer was chosen for our class sponsor. 
We were well represented in dramatics. In the fall 
production, "The American Primitive," Peggy 
Childs, Ann Wenner, Gail Bowen, and Mickey 
Warden, displayed their talents. At the traditional 
Christmas banquet, the freshmen came through 
with top honors in the presentation of "Trudy 
Visits Toyland." 

There was a freshman for every sport. Mickey fa- 
vored in the fall sports, hockey varsity, while 

Mary Clare Turner, Carolyn Lewis, and Bobbie 
Van Devanter looked toward winter and basket- 
ball. Jo Smith was the official time-keeper. Class 
spirit also ran high. Diana Lee, hockey captain, 
and Mary Clare, basketball captain, gave us our 
pep talks. Although not victorious in all gomes, 
we put up a good fight. 

Who had the steam? Why, the cheerleaders, of 
course. Those from our class were Janle Clough, 
Diana Lee Johnson, and Jon Chose. 
Following the first semester we lost three valuable 
classmates, our two council members, Jonie and 
Mickey, and Vice-President, Gail. We gained, 
though, a cute redhead, Ruth Butcher. A new 
Secretary and Vice-President were elected. Cor- 
nelia Dixon and Bobbie Van Devanter ably filled 
their new positions. 

Looking back on our freshman year, we were 
proud of what lies behind, and confident of what 
awaits us.
