Published By The Senior Classes of 1946
of Euclid Central High School
As nations prepare for peace, high school stu-
dents of the United States are preparing for the
duties that they, as the future men and women of
America, will undertake. They no longer have the
gloomy prospect of war ahead, but rather the peace
that follows, and having lived through a period of
sorrow and tenseness, they are determined that in-
nocent people will suffer no longer at the expense
of a mad dictator's ambition for conquering the
world. To this younger generation will go the ,|ob
of keeping the world one of a united nations.
WE DEDICATE THIS BOOK
To Miss Agnes M. Burgess, beloved member of
the faculty for twenty-eight years, who passed
away suddenly November 19, 1945, we dedicate
Opus '46. Miss Burgess symbolized the spirit of
Euclid Central. She gave of herself in order that
Euclid Central might have the utmost. Her tireless
efforts in working with students in her classes will
be remembered. She founded the Student Council
and the Euclid Central Chapter of the National
Honor Society. But most of all, her sweet, quiet
smile, and kind, sincere greeting will be missed in
the halls of the school and in every lane she trav-
eled in life.

I am sure that the revival of the Euclid
Central annual is entirely worthy of the
highest commendation. Not only is it a
record of the achievement and effort of the
members of a splendid graduating class. In
a way it represents all that is offered to
every pupil, regardless of his yearly class
May I not urge upon the graduates of
1946 to cherish this volume and preserve
it carefully. As the years come and go it
will become priceless as a clear record of
friends and events when our line of mem-
ories tend to fade and blur. My highest
congratulations to the June, 1946, class.
Yours is a magnificent record.
RUSSELL H. ERWINE
Superintendent of Schools
The staff of OPUS '46 and its faculty
sponsors, Miss Mary K. Hausheer and Mr.
Harold Blackburn, are to be heartily con-
gratulated for their splendid achievement
in producing this year book.
It is of interest that this first post-war
year brings not only a renewed hope for the
future on the part of our young people but
aiso the production of this fine school doc-
ument which represents a record of the
achievements and growth of the students
of Euclid Central.
This volume will be cherished by the
class of '46 and surely serve as a stimulus
to the classes which are to follow.

THE CLASS PROPHECY OF JANUARY,
Students and faculty members, you are about to behold the prophecy of the January
graduation class of eighteen WHOLLY SANE MEMBERS. The longing to visualize what's
awaiting us in the future, is not lacking in any of us, but if we ever do put forth enuogh
effort to gain our desired goals, may their realization be as satisfactory and enjoyable as
was the time spent in attaining them.
RAY MOTISKA, we prophesy, will turn out to be another Jascha Heifetz, or at least
a violinist comparable to him.
RUSSELL CHANEY will leave his jitterbugging days behind him and walk into the do-
mestic role of a husband in the near future.
DOROTHY ZELE, one ambitious member of 203, after four struggling years at Fenn
College, will finally receive her A.B. degree.
RAY KRALL and MIKE KOCJAN; they're in the Army now, on part time shifts — giv-
ing orders to Uncle Sam and doing K.P.
NORMA KOVACH, the sensible one of our little group, is now manager of Neisner
Brothers, Euclid's Junior Department Store.
NETTIE WEISS and DOLORES CRIBBONS — Florence Nightingale has nothing over Net-
tie Weiss, and Dolores can scarcely refrain from a roaring cheer, recalling high school days
every time she emerges from the psychopathic ward.
MATTHEW CHINCHAR, the specialist of the spectacular, digging all the spots on
Broadway for the latest jive.
BARBARA NACY and CHARLOTTE ZIECHMANN, proprietors of the Heavenly Haven
Mortuary, will be known as the Elusive Exclusive Embalmers, Inc.
ROSE VEDMAR has signed a year's contract with Eddie Cantor, as Mrs. Mad Russian.
DELILAS BYERLEY — a new dental assistant is Delilas Byerley. The Doctor's curly hair
BILL IVANCIC is earning his money as chief brick layer on Euclid's W. P. A.
RUDY BERLAN has reached a life ambition and is now trucking manager of Addresso-
ADELINE ICZAK, the class choice as the person most likely to succeed, is chief adviser
of Mrs. Maxwell's love-lorn column. She aids all those who need advice on how to catch a
man or how to lose him.
And now as we come to the end, we must not forget a certain He-man of 203: DON
KOLLMORCEN, the red-haired class president of class '46.
THE CLASS PROPHECY OF JUNE, 1946
JEAN BREW, editor of the Euclid Monitor (a two-year-old edition of the growing city
of Euclid, Ohio) features today, June 6, 1956, a review of the Euclid Central graduating class
of June 6, 1946. Miss Brew has spent much of her time looking up her old classmates. The
result is this:
THE CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL rates first place with some faculty announce-
ments. There is COACH WILLIE YOZIPOVICH with the job of trying to breach the differ-
ences between the fellows from Shore and Euclid, now on one team.
BILL VANNELLI is head of the Science Department and teaches Physics most capably.
He takes the place of his teacher, Mr. Keay, who has retired.
Of most interest to the Science Head is the recent donation of ten thousand dollars by
MR. JOHN STEFANAC to install flying classes complete with airplanes. This multi-million-
aire is constantly donating large amounts of money to worthy causes.
MISS MILDRED BLAZEK, teacher of history and one of the new courses in school, psy-
chology, was just recently voted the best-liked faculty member.
School nurse STANA MRSNIK managed to keep away from the Euclid Educational Sys-
tem only long enough to get her RN. She returned immediately to watch student tempera-
MISS JANE LUZAR announced that the kindergarten class of the Elementary School was
full to overflowing. Seems she has quite a few duplications. First there were five identical
boys escorted by their proud mother, the former MARYETTA HEALY, who has something in
common with Mrs. Dionne. The quintuplets are Tom, Dick, Harry, George, and Frank!
As if this weren't enough to confuse Miss Luzar, the girl once known as ELEANOR
SULLIVAN sent her triplet boys to join the class.
Other members of the Parent Teachers' Associatioon are the former DORIS PRAPROT-
NIK, once an efficient secretary, now married to the boss, who is an ideal housewife and
mother; the former JOSEPHINE POSTACCHINI has much the same background, except that
she married a traveling salesman who wasn't her boss then but he is now; BONES was her
name and FRANNIE still is, but now she 's married with a home and children.
All in the line of teaching comes this notice: JEAN BICKLEY just promoted head of the
English Department of Woman's College. She said in her statement to the press, "I owe my
success to the perseverance of my High School English teacher."
The High School and newspaper aren't the only things come to pass in Euclid. No,
there's the new court-house for which the electrician's plans were recently completed by
ROBERT KLINGER. The people of Euclid are not only considering Mr. Klinger electrically as
far as the court-house is concerned, but also politically.
On the jazz side there is the fact that the Bronze Room of Hotel Cleveland is billing the
home-town boy, ART SYDOW, and his stage-screen-radio-and-television famous dance band!
In radio there is new:, too, for the crisp, clear tones of a familiar radio announcer can
be identified as those of PETER BENES describing the value and importance of using Sudso
in your laundry, Mr. Benes then goes on to introduce the Sudso Soap Opera — "The Passion-
ate Philanthropist," starring DICK BROWN as Phil and MARIAN WOLF as Odessera, the
woman with whom Phil is hopelessly in love.
In the field of science, discovery, and achievement is to be noticed the recent release of
information by the government concerning the secret work done by EDWARD PRIJATEL and
)ACK SMITH on the new type of atom control. PRI)ATEL worked on methods of controlling
the energy of the atom, while SMITH has devised a new chemical combination of U-235.
Then there is EDWARD LYNCH who is proposing a flight to the moon. He has just
broken all flight records of speed in hi? jet-propelled plane.
]EAN CUTLER has just returned from an expedition into the interior of Korea, where
she was searching for a certain type of native with the distinguishing features being slant-
eyes and broken noses. The results of her mission are not yet known.
The financial world reports at the end of the fiscal year that the Shepard Company was
again the most successful. ROBERT SHEPARD, president of the company, is described by his
efficient private secretary, MISS BERNICE MOELLER, as the "King Midas of big business."
Miss Moeller is leaving the company now, at the finish of a busy season, to marry.
Musically there is MARY TUCK with her all-girl orchestra touring the country, steeped
in success. Of course, the lilting soprano voice of OLGA ZAKRAjSEK makes their fame
When the Summer Symphony Concerts start next week, MINNA KEEL, who holds the
coveted seat of first bass viol, will be featured soloist.
Also new on the network is JOHN JURATOVAC who is replacing Mr. Anthony. Mr.
Juratovac is reported the most capable for the position of telling people what to do and why
Technically there is FRANK ROBERTSON, who skillfully maneuvers the dials and knobs
of his own invention, a new type television radio!
Broadway called quite a few. It seems ANTOINETTE CIAMEIO was once the secretary
to a Broadway musical producer and was typing a script that called for a dancer that she
felt certain she could portray. She got the part with some fast talking, and quickly climbed
the heights to stardom with tapping toes.
Featured in the same musical was a little blonde girl at the piano. The tickler of the
ivories turned out to be IRENE STEFFEK.
Emceeing the show was that fast ad-libber with the rather red face, JOE EISLER. They
say Joe's slated for Hollywood.
Domesticity's voice had a wide range. DOLORES PETRICK this week becomes the bride
of an Army man after deciding not to wait for her future husband's discharge, as it is ru-
mored the Captain intends to carry on his career in the armed forces.
MARILYN BRENNAN'S family eats well, for her years as dietician in one of Cleveland's
larger hospitals speaks favorably of her home-making abilities.
JEAN IBELE, now happily married to a rancher out west, can be remembered for her
fine interior decorating jobs. Her home must be ideal.
DIANA HAWKEY devotes her time between law offices and home-making. One place
she decides whether to prosecute, and in the other her decision is whether to broil or bake!
Mothers, like the former DOROTHY SNIDER, turn to AL JASIN. owner and manager of
"Kiddies Clothing Store," when in search of outfits for their offspring. He sent to New York
to get Dorothy two bell-bottomed navy blue suits, in sizes 5 and 6 ; for her little sailors!
Sports is well represented. In the Olympic Meet, FRANK D'ARCY ran a four-minute
mile which crowned his success on the cinders.
In the air, there is SHIRLEY CLEETEN, a tiny miss but a big pilot. Her stunting brings
chills to all who watch. She occasionally takes up a brave friend.
Also in the air but in a different way are TED MclNTEE and ETHEL HEISER. When
the circus comes to town, everyone goes to watch this team do their daring, three-somersault
act on the flying trapeze. Most exciting is the fact that there is no net beneath them.
In the water are the two famous blonde bombshells featured in the coming Aquacade.
They are LAURA LEE CRONDA and IRENE HABIC. Their water race has unusual style.
Not always in the water but always near it is GEORGE BALINT, life-guard. He is still
the principal attraction of the beach. He intends going south where his job will take on
Another woman in sports is COLEEN MARTIN, who was today noted the most famous
woman athlete. She has, at some time or other, participated in every sport.
Heard from Hollywood is this clever quip: that Lana Turner and Rita Hayworth are
leaving because of KATHERINE VALJATO'S appearance, which has caused many a male heart
at that West Coast beauty center to flutter violently.
From the Mid-west comes this: Chicago citizens have gone into hiding since they heard
the Flying Hanlon brothers intend to stop over the Windy City in their tour of the country.
Evidently they have heard of some of ED HANLON'S escapades!
Other travelers are ELSIE KOVAC and EMLIE HEHR who have again set out for South
America. This is the two-some's third trip south of the border. One of their first stops will
be to see NANCY DAVIS, now of the diplomatic bureau as interpreter.
MISS MILDRED HABIC just returned from her villa in Florida where she tells of a gay
time, and is planning to leave next week to spend the remainder of the summer in California.
Miss Habic intends to go on a buying spree first.
Naturally there was a slight return to the soil; it occurred in TOM KEAY who has been
farming soy beans. He combines his mechanical, chemical, and physics knowledge to find
new uses for the plastics he makes at harvest.

"TIME OUT FOR FUN"
We, at Euclid Central, are very proud of our club program. Our aim
is to have an extra-curricular activity for every student. Besides those
"after-school" clubs which are pictured on the following pages, there are
twenty-three clubs which meet the third period on Wednesday. They are
varied so as to provide, as nearly as possible, an outlet of interest for every
student. Though sponsored by a teacher, each club is run by a student cab-
inet chosen by the members themselves. Some are service clubs, while oth-
ers are purely social. Some are open just to junior high or senior high,
while others are for boys, or for girls, and some are open to the whole stu-
dent body. For Junior High boys and girls, Mr. Smith has the Junior Card
and Games Club; Miss Surrarrer has the Junior Dramatics Club; and Mrs.
Keyerleber has the Junior Camera Club. For Junior High boys, Mr. Graham
has the Airplane Club, Mr. Brown has the Pre-flight Club, Mr. Edwards and
Mr. McBride have charge of the Junior High Recreation, and Mr. Hoon has
the Boosters Club. Junior High girls may belong to Miss Vermillion's Hob-
bies Club, Junior Girl Reserves under Miss Chiara and Miss Hausheer or Miss
Keyerleber's Square Dance Club.
Senior High boys and girls are offered the Drama Club in charge of Mr.
Bennett, Mr. Keay's Camera Club, Chess and Checkers Club under Mr. Leb-
ovitz, Mr. Price's Archery Club, the Card Club under Mr. Gray, and Miss
Hoddick and Mr. Vollman's Arts and Crafts Club. For Senior High boys,
Mr. Calvert has the Gymnastics Club, and Mr. Blackburn has the Travel
Club. Miss Kessinger has the Amiga Club, and Miss Berg has the Music
Appreciation Club for Sr. High girls. The Spanish Club under Mr. Marcotte,
and Mrs. Stewart's International Relations Club are for both Junior and Sen-
ior High students.
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
A chapter of the National Honor Society
was founded at Euclid Central by Miss Ag-
nes Burgess. Members are elected to this
organization by the faculty in both the first
and the second semesters. Students are el-
igible for membership in the 1 1A and 1 2A
classes, and the number of candidates is
determined by the enrollment of each class.
Scholarship, leadership, character, and ser-
vice are the requirements which are con-
sidered. Achievement of membership is
the highest honor which can be bestowed
upon a student. Miss Pauline Berg is the
faculty adviser. President, Jean Brew;
Vice-President, Robert Shepard; Secretary-
Treasurer, Diana Hawkey.

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIAT
The Girls' Athletic Association is a new
organization at Euclid Central. It was es-
tablished this year by Miss Betty Keyer-
leber, and its chief function is the organiz-
ing of girls' intramural sports. The offi-
cers are Dolores Kne, president; Jean Cut-
ler, vice-president; Lillian Makransky, sec-
retary; and Shirley Miller, treasurer. It
has established a new system of awarding
numerals to girls who have done outstand-

the movies sponsored by the Movie Club
every last twenty-minutes of all the lunch
periods. Besides these current movies are

toward a new projector, which will be
bought by the money received from the
two-cent charge on the noon movies.

The mystery farce "Ram-
shackle Inn" was presented by
the Senior Class on April 4th
and April 5th, 1946. Ram-
shackle Inn was a hide-out for
three black-market racketeers.
When a flighty new owner
took over, she was tolerated
because she didn't know
enough to cause any trouble.
However, she, with the help of
a woman from the F.B.I., fi-
nally succeeded in capturing
the racketeers and finding the
mysterious person who had
committed so many murders
throughout the story. She was
amply rewarded for her ef-

The play "Snafu" was pre-
sented by the Junior class on
November 1, 1945. Situation
normal all fouled up. Poor
Ronald Stevens certainly was
"Snafu" when he changed his
uniform to "civies." Being fol-
lowed by detectives, caught by
the police, entangling himself
in family problems, and be-
coming the major part in a col-
lege scandal were only a few
of the situations in which he
found himself. He decided
that Army life was peaceful by
comparison, and so ran away
to re-enlist. Feeling con-
science-stricken because he
had left his parents without
explaining to them, Ronald re-
turned. Meanwhile, events had
been clarified, and he decided
that home, after all, was the
best place to stay.

Captain Ed Mikovich
The year 1945 was a fair season for the
Lion football team. Out of nine games the
boys finished with four games to their cred-
it and one tie. Students were thrilled at
games in all kinds of weather, sometimes
being soaked to the skin before the end of
Good leadership was found in the co-
captains Ed "Moe" Mickovic and Don
Kollmorgen. Ed was a contender for the
conference scoring championship and Dick
Hardy made the All-Conference Team. One
of the fastest men in the conference was
Cliff Boyce, an eleventh-grader.
As usual, the biggest game of the season
was Euclid Central vs. Euclid Shore. It was
held on the Euclid Central field. Shore de-
feated us but not without a great deal of

Captain Willie Yozipovich
Captain Bob Drobnik
This year's team could have been termed a "hot and cold''
ball club, coming through with a record of six wins out of six-
teen. Despite the number of losses, the games were full of fun
and excitement. Some of the outstanding games were those
with South High, Brush and Bedford, all of which we lost by
The team had an excellent captain in Willie Yozipovich.
His tireless playing and quick thinking helped out in many tight
spots. Willie was also high-point man for the squad and close
contender for the conference individual scoring championship.
The Reserve Cagers made an outstanding showing. The
boys, captained by Bob Drobnick, certainly foretold a good sea-
son for the coming year.

quite heavy and great things are expected of the team at the time our year-
book went out.
The class of '46 boasts of having in its midst Frank D'Arcy, who took
the mile run at the Scholastic Meet at the Public Hall. Frank also partici-
pated in the K. of C. Meet and the cross-country meet. Also outstanding
on the team was Ivor Bork, who piled up points in the high hurdle, high
jump, and the quarter-mile run.

GIRLS' LEADERS CLUB
The Girls' Leaders is an outstanding club
for Euclid Central girls. It is a selected
group — the girls being voted on by teach-
ers and also by the members of the club.
They must have athletic ability, character,
a capability for taking on responsibility,
sportsmanship. Those obtaining high rank
and having these qualifications are ac-

MUSIC HATH CHARM
A first-place rating for five years has been held by the Euclid Central
band under the direction of Dale Harper. Illustrative of the type of work
done by the band is the fact that Euclid Central was invited to play at the
National Educators' Convention. This team of sixty-five musicians has per-
formed in numerous concerts for the school and civil enjoyment each year.
Mr. Albert Mitchell has charge of the Junior High Band.
The orchestra, directed by Mr. Dale Harper, has about forty members.
This organization has to prepare music for two class plays, two concerts, and
a few special assemblies. The orchestra practices on Monday and Wednes-
day, third period. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, first period, Mr. Harper
works with the string section.
Over one hundred harmonizing voices, which constitute the Euclid
Central choir, have transcribed records for use on the city networks. Mr.
John Beck is justly proud of the results of his efforts.
JR. HIGH BAND
CALENDAR OF EVENTS
September 5 — The first day of the school year, and with it, the beginning
of an eventful year. Mr. Gilbert reigns in his position as
principal; Peter Benes, as Student Council president.
September 21 — Sponsoring the first dance of the year is the Hi-Y, under the
direction of president Bob Lyman. He and the boys made
possible a good time for everyone.
September 28 — The cheerleaders need new outfits this year, and as a result,
a dance was given to raise funds for them. The squad now
consists of three boys and three girls. They are Dolores
Gribbons and Dolores Petrick; co-head cheerleaders, Lillian
Makransky, Edward Clark, Edward Kovacich, and Bryan
October 5 — The first football game of the year with our very promising
team in new uniforms.
October 19 — Little Jean Brew has taken upon herself the job of editing
the Echo. Her page editors are: Nettie Wess, Pat Kreyssig,
Coleen Martin, Minna Keel, and Nancy Davis, business man-
ager. Mr. Hocn and Mr. Lebovitz are faculty advisers.
October 26 — No school today because of N.E.O.T.A.
November 1 — "Snafu," the Junior Class play, is a big success with Allen
Bassett in the title role. Euclid Central is the first Cleveland
school to present this play.
November 2 — A rally for the Shore-Central game sported a big bonfire and
snake-dance for the first time in many years. The bonfire
was started by co-captains Moe Mikovich and Don Kollmor-
November 3 — The big game of the year with victory for Shore. Willie Yo-
zipovich, a letterman of many years, has seen his hopes of
beating Shore fail again. Maybe next year, "Zip."
November 16 — Gala Nite — which means the last public performance at
school for the Jascha Heifetz of Euclid Central, Ray Motiska.
November 17 — The All-conference team this year includes Dick Hardy, first
team, and Bob Sheoard, second team. Nice going, fellows.
We're proud of you.
November 22 — Thanksgiving vacation — and just when school was becom-
ing bearable. Nevertheless, students enjoyed it, and came
back to school well-stuffed with turkey.
December 1 — The Senior class just decided to undertake the publishing of
a yearbook. This is the first annual being put out on a large
December 7 — A new theme in the way of dances has been started with the
Echo's Snowball Dance. Bob Lyman and Barbara Walter
were elected King and Queen. Chosen as the best couple
dancing, were Anida Miller and Sam Perry.
December 17 — An all-girls' Christmas party was planned for tonight, but
weather conditions did not permit it to be held. President
of the Girls' League is Barbara Walter.
December 18 — The first Patron's Concert of the year was held tonight,
making this the busiest week in a long time. Both the band
and choir participated in this affair.
December 19 — Before leaving school until next year, a dance was held in
the new gym, with music by the P. A. system. The P. A. Club
seems to have gotten some "nifty" records lately, Ted Mcln-
tee helping things along by his expert skill at the controls.
December 20 — At last! the long awaited for Christmas vacation, and with
it many delicious plans in the making. The girls, especially,
will be happy, what with all the servicemen coming home on
January 3 — And so, back to school — but what a vacation. New outfits
are being sported by many, and Jean Cutler seems to have
added to her collection of Indian bracelets.
January 19 — The Friendship Formal, a regular thing at Euclid Central, was
held in the gym, with decorations following an out-door
scene. Lamp-posts with kerosene lanterns, firemen to watch
out for fires, snowmen, live Christmas trees, and park
benches were some of the decorations used to lend atmos-
phere to the gym.
January 24 — We say farewell to the January graduating class, who will be
missed by all. Adeline Iczak and Norma Kovach took high
honors as Valedictorian and Salutatorian of their class.
January 25 — The Shore-Central game was played tonight with very high ex-
pectations on our part, but again they have managed to beat
us. With the cheerleading squad now is Larry Stark, who
has replaced Bryan Jones since the beginning of the basket-
January 26 — A dance at Recher Hall was held by the Euclid Central vet-
erans, of which Ed Stock is president. They have organized
a basketball team that will compete not only with our Varsi-
ty, but with other organizations, too.
January 28 — A new semester, and with it new resolutions to better this
half of the school year. There has been talk of a three-min-
ute class change which will permit students to leave school
at three o'clock. Bob Klinger will now receive the gavel,
which is symbolical of presidency of Student Council, from
February 9 — It looks as if the Veterans of this school aren't any better than
the Varsity in conquering Shore. The Shore veterans won
the game, which was the first one played between the vet-
erans of the schools.
February 12 — The second Patron's Concert of the year, with the band and
orchestra sharing the billing.
February 26 — The all-star girls' game between the Army and the Navy, cap-
tained respectively by Dolores Petrick and lean Brew. The
Army won. Although no boys were invited, it has been ru-
mored that some did see the game. How about that, Ed Di-
Cenzo, Rocco Baldassarre, Larry Hattondorf, and Allen Bas-
February 28 — We came in third in our track meet with Cathedral Latin and
Rhodes. Frank D'Arcy, our protege, who came in first in the
district meet and third in the state meet earlier this year, has
started his firsts in the mile. Ivor Bork, high-point man last
year, is in his same form this year.
March 15 — The band is out for new uniforms — so, a concert in swingtime.
All music played is popular.
March 30 — Once again a carnival is being held at Euclid Central. All cash
profits will be turned over to the different organizations of
the school, that will be of benefit to the school.
April 10 — Shore vs. Euclid at Central track field.
April 12 — Big Nite, and once again we say good-bye to people who won't
be seen on the stage any more. Art Sydon, whose band has
been playing for dances at school lately, is destined to be-
come another Harry James.
April 15-19 — Vocational Conference week.
April 22 — The start of spring vacation, and we have all earned a rest.
April 29 — Back to school again, and since everybody is rested up, school can
go back to normal again.
May 3 — Sadie Hawkins Dance, a little late this year due to conditions be-
yond the Girls' Leaders' control, is being taken advantage of
by girls after dates to the Prom. More couoles at school
start that way. The Leaders' Club has had as its president
all year, Stana Mrsnik, who has worked hard on all activities.
May 10 — The third and last music concert. Seniors to be missed in these
programs will be: Jean Cutler, Diana Hawkey, Bob Klinger,
Lauralee Cronda, Irene Steffek, Minna Keel, Mary Tuck, and
We wonder what the band will be like without them.
May 16-17 — The Senior class play, "Ramshackle Inn," under the direction
of Mr. Hoon, is a wonderful success and a tribute to the sen-
May 25 — And now that event of all events! The Junior-Senior Prom. This
is the night Mom and Dad will overlook a few hours late on
the curfew that has had to be kept. This evening will be the
one to be remembered through later life.
May 29 — Senior Day.
May 30 — Memorial Day. The band marched and played in the customary
June 1 — The Senior Class banquet.
June 2 — Baccalaureate Service at Euclid Central.
June 6 — Commencement — and a good-bye to school life for the seniors.
June 7 — Last day of school.

There is also a well-worked plot of ground up in Richmond Heights, and one can often
see, clothed in faded blue dungerees, EMIL PALSA, the owner!
There are several pictures in the "Monitor," one is of a serious-looking young woman,
and the caption reads "authoress." Now along with Anatole France's, "The Red Lilly"; Emil
Zola's, "Camille"; and Kathleen Winsor's, "Forever Amber," a copy of PATRICIA BLAKES-
LEY'S self-illustrated "Chastean and Charles" now rests.
Another picture is a glamorous pose of a photogenic young girl and it reads beneath
the picture — BARBARA WALTER has again been made cover girl of the magazine "Exis-
tence." She is the only model to be four times on the cover of "Existence."
The comics are clever in drawing and in story. The cartoons are ably draw by NANCY
SODERSTROM, whose clever pencil creates both lovable and sinister characters. The stories
are written by CAROL LYNN YACELLO who takes the characters upon their life's path.
In the advertisements are seen bite of interest such as these — "Is life becoming drab
and dull f6r you? Do you long for a night of gayety? Well, be sure to go to GEORGE
COOK'S Coca Cabana, sophisticated song-dance-dine-and-wine!"
Or "Intending an airplane trip? Try American Air Lines. We have congenial hostesses!
Meet DOLORES KNE, (picture) air stewardess. You'll enjoy your trip more with a helpful
Lyman's Animal Hospital. Dogs and Cats treated at reasonable prices. Dr. Robert Ly-
man on call at all times.
Or "A Modern Beauty Salon has opened on Main Street at Elm. Be sure to stop in to
consult beauticians HELEN GORDISH or BARBARA ZUBER about your beauty treatment."
And then there's the one that reads "RICHARD HARDY'S Charm School now offers
special Wednesday afternoon classes for your convenience. Of course, there will still be car-
ried on the regular evening classes. The enrollment is high, so hurry and get your name in."
So by reading a copy of the Euclid Monitor of June 6. 1956, it is easily seen that the
class of June 6, 1946, did very well for itself and will undoubtedly carry on even better in
the future. FINIS
