We sing our praise 

To thee, our Alma Mater, 

In gratitude for memory's golden store, 

Of friendships that 

Were made in joy and sorrow 

That we shall cherish now and ever more. 

Friend of our youth, 

We hail thee, Euclid Central, 

To thee we pledge 

Our faith and loyalty.

This is the third year of a new age in which a deci- 
sion must be arrived at; it is the Atomic Age, and 
the decision is that of ultimate disaster or peace 
among one's brothers. As we seniors come from 
high school, we are faced with a problem of adjust- 
ing ourselves to society. Our earnest prayer is: 
"Let ours be a society of good will and not a society 
of chaos." 

— Jean Smith

We, the seniors, dedicate this final year book to 
two teachers, Miss Edna Surrarrer, who has for ten 
years aided the students of Euclid Central High 
School to enjoy better the beautiful poems of the 
past and to learn words that will enable them to 
obtain a brighter tomorrow. And Mr. John Beck, 
who has not only built choirs that are imposing 
attributes of the memory of our auditorium, but 
who has familiarized us with the melodies that will 
live in our reveries and dreams forever. 

Miss Surrarrer's and Mr. Beck's friendship and 
sincere interest in every student as an individual 
who deserves considerate regard has inspired us to 
do our best in high school as well as after gradua- 
tion.

OPUS 1949 

With this yearbook as a record of 
The Graduating Classes of January and 
June, 1949, Euclid Central will cease 
to be a regular high school. Proud is 
its record as a school. Great have been 
its contributions to the local commu- 
nity and to the State. With a faculty 
of men and women of high purposes 
and sound convictions, it has constant- 
ly brought to the young people of the 
community the finest achievements 
of our social inheritance. 

As you leave the school with our 
best wishes and high expectations we 
urge you to cherish the high ideals 
that have been developed here and to 
be constantly loyal to the great pur- 
poses of life. May God bless you and 
give you strength for the tasks that lie 
ahead. 

Very truly yours, 

R. H. Erwine 
Superintendent of Schools 





FOR THE OPUS, 1949 

This yearbook will be cherished by 
students and friends of Euclid Central 
for many years to come. It is, in a 
sense, a farewell tribute to our high 
school which we all honor and revere 
Its pages serve as a mirror to portray 
the daily life which our students and 
faculty lived together during the past 
year. Our appreciation and congratu ■ 
lations are extended to the Opus staff 
and sponsor for the colorful account 
of Euclid Central's last year as a senior 
high school. The spirit of Euclid Cen- 
tral as reflected in this yearbook is 
evidence of a school loyalty which is 
everlasting. 

Sincerely yours, 

Clifford G. Owens 

Principal

Miss Clara Chiara 



Mr. Robert Holloway 



Miss Clara Chiara, who this year 
received her Doctor's degree from 
Ohio State University, has been Dean 
of Girls at Euclid Central for the past 
two years. Her interest in the welfare 
of the girls and their problems has 
been unending. Her experience in 
handling girls and her fine education 
have fitted her well for this position. 



In Sept. of 1947 Mr. Robert Hollo- 
way became dean of Boys at Euclid 
Central. His past experiences in han- 
dling men, along with his college edu- 
cation help to equip him for this posi- 
tion. He did a great deal of work with 
them while in the Navy and has done 
an excellent job here at Euclid Cen- 
tral. 



THE BO AMD OF EDUCATION 

The Euclid Board of Education consists of five public-spirited citizens 
who are elected by popular vote, and serve without benefit of salary in the 
interest of public welfare. Our Euclid public schools are maintained and 
governed locally under the able guardianship of this body. The members of 
the Bord of Eduaction are: John F. Davis, C. E. Bowman, Russell Class, Loren 
J. Bullard, and Anton E. Strohm.

SENIOR FAREWELL POEM 



It is with a nostalgic sigh 

We leave Euclid Central High 

And all that it does signify 

The memories of the Shore-Central games, 

The concerts, the plays, the dances, 

The Echo, the choirs and the band, 

All have immortal fame in our hearts. 

For when we close the high school door 

For the last time, and then, no more 

The thoughts will come to us 

With tears and soft flowing sounds 

Of the life, the irrevocable life 

Of Euclid Central High. 

As through our minds we gaze 

Upon these happy, those youthful days, 

We long to be in that past phase. 

But now, no longer is there a senior high 

Except in our reminiscent soul's eye, 

Our rival team and we've combined 

And you'll no Euclid Central find, 

At least not the Central of yesterday. 

For it's gone into the past, a prosaic way. 

Farewell to the friends we've met and loved, 

Farewell to our classmates, "We'll meet above. 

For into the world we bring our dreams 

And they will come true as Cod deems.

JANUARY - JUNE PROPHECY * 1949 

JANUARY CLASS PROPHECY 
1949 

We'd like to take you into the year 1959, Laguna Beach, Florida, where the 
multi-millionaire lawyer, Al Harke, is holding a large house-party for his 
many friends. As we stroll down to the beach we find the fabulous Ramon 
Dries lolling there. As he approaches the water's edge and starts to wade 
in, we notice that he is wearing an expensive looking wrist watch. My friend 
calls out to him. He thanks us for the warning, takes off the wrist watch, 
puts it in a small pocket of his swimming trunks and wades off into 
the water. 

Also enjoying the Florida sunshine we see Esther Kessler who is now running 
to be the first woman president of the United States. Her campaign slogan 
is "Ahead with Red." With Esther is her famous photographer and body 
guard, Anthony Ferrato. 

On a near-by pier, fishing, we find Wilma Johnson trying in vain to hook her 
man. 

Just arriving is Dolores Perat, owner of the popular "400 Club," thrilled over 
the success of its grand opening. Given credit for this success was head 
food-taster, Dick DeCenova. Among those present at the opening were Bob 
Ksenich, successful farmer, and Walter Jaros, Bob's private mechanic for his 
tractors. Wally's main job consists of keeping the tractors free from dust. 
As we enter the house we see Pfc. Roland Hazzard and Al Oesterle, Captain 
of the S.S. Washtub, surrounded by a crowd of happy people, telling of the 
"lost weekend" they spent in search of some good rich milk which they 
hadn't had for quite some time. They searched in vain all day Friday, Satur- 
day, and finally on Sunday they came to a large building with the sign 
"Creamatory" posted on the front. In front of the place there were many 
large, expensive looking cars. Thinking at last he had found a place to get 
a good drink of milk, Roland went in. A couple of hours passed and Roland 
didn't return. Finally a large group of people led by James Stewart, owner 
of the establishment, came out and drove away. Presently Roland came out 
all tattered and torn, bruised and shorn. When asked by Al what had hap- 
pened, Roland said, "I walked in, said 'What's cookin'?' and they all jumped 
on me. 

Speeding up to the house in his midget auto racer is Lloyd Dunlap — Oops!! 
missed that curve!!! Rushing to his rescue is none other than the top sur- 
geon of the Kalberer Clinic, Walter Kalberer, and his head nurse, Stephanie 
Kornprobst. While coming to, Lloyd is singing, "All I Want For Christmas 
Is My Two Front Teeth." 

Also arriving is the distinguished David Payne, chairman of the Interstate 
Commerce Commission. He has just appointed Mickey Schneider head me- 
chanic of the White House Garage. 

Proudly telling of her great success is Betty Lou Rohrbach, now private sec- 
retary to Richard Welling, president of the Fix-lt-Yourself Shop. She has 
fulfilled her ambition to travel. She has to walk to work and back every 
day. 

Approaching us is the scholarly Art Morse who \% being followed closely by 
the prominent psychiatrist, Jean Smith. She is making careful observation 
of Art's case. He is the only freshman who has been in the class for ten 
years. 

Also present is Allene Toth, the world's greatest success. She has just given 
Larry Swaney $100 to set himself up in business. He is now stiff competi- 
tion for John D. Rockefeller, Jr. 

Next we see Douglas Miller, president of the E. E., who stops to chat with us 
a moment. With him is his private secretary, Mary Lou Stefancik, who en- 
tertains him in his spare time by singing such classics as "Marzi Dotes." 
Strolling through the garden is Professor Robert O. Bailey and his brilliant lab 
student, Mary Ann Mavsar. (He is telling her the answers to tomorrow's 
test). 

The conversation at the present time is about Bob Cenzen and his champion 
athletic teams at Euclid Senior High School. 

Dolores Beakel has just returned from Hollywood where she was starring in 
the picture said to be most likely to win the Academy Award. 

Thirty-five 



Jeannette Danley has just arrived with Paul Chaney, her chief instructor, at 
the "Chaney Institute of Art." 

Refreshments are now being served, so we must hurry along into the dining 
room where we see Jean Saso who has recently opened a Beauty Salon on 
Fifth Avenue. Such celebrities as Corinne Brown, Mary Pfaff and Virginia 
Hansen are seen there often. Corinne Brown, "America's Number One 
Home Maker," has written an article on, "How To Be Happy Though Mar- 
ried." Working as Jean's advertising manager, we find Dick Cederlund 
busily handing out handbills on Broadway. 

John Bann, electrical engineer, and Frank Bosco, structural engineer, are tell- 
ing of their work on the new sky scraper to be located on Euclid's Public 
Square. 

The Euclid Clinic is now directed by a competent staff consisting of Dick 
Coski and Ervin Emery. 

As we go out the door we see a large crowd gathering around a very distin- 
guished looking man. Upon investigation we find that it is the one and only 
Carl Farcna, now Secretary of the Navy. 

Once again out in the open we notice, away out in the distance on 
the ccean, Gerald Shelden paddling away on his home-made canoe, trying to 
get away from it all. 

Last, but not least, is Bob Pinkava whom we have just seen stepping into his 
custom-built limousine. We hear that he is now a successful manager of 
one of America's outstanding office supply stores. 

June Prophecy — 1949 

A great reunion of the June class of 1949 is about to begin. The year is now 
1959. 

Marion Anderson is the first to arrive in her '59 yellow Mercury convertible. 
She has just completed a tour of Florida. Anthony Arko went along for the 
ride as a traveling salesman, trying to sell a punch board to raffle off the High 
Level Bridge. Bill Long is stiff competition for Marion in his fancy red con- 
vertible. 

Wanda Armour will be entertaining us with her impersonations. 
Joan Baeckler and Barbara Westbrook are late in arriving as they are still in 
search of an ambition. 

Marie Baitt and Edna Smith are next to be welcomed into this happy throng. 
They have come, willing to give their services if needed. They are both grad- 
uate nurses from Nancy Nimmo's School of Nursing. 

Next to join us is the happy-go-lucky John Bartone. Pat Beam has been tell- 
ing of her trip around the world. She doesn't understand why she can't go 
through it instead of around it. Nancy Beck will model the latest styles in 
women's wear on this great occasion, her fashion designers being Eldean 
Ceasar and Mary Cherry. It isn't very practical as it takes two women to 
help carry the dress and one to wear it. 

Adrienne Bennett has brought along as chaperon the elderly Mr. Dale Harper 
whom she is still teaching eight hours a day how to roller skate. Latest re- 
ports say that Ruth Bennington is on her way. She is in her freshman year 
at college. Peggy Berger just breezed by. She is chasing Joe Blatnik. It 
seems she heard he was in the money-making business. Chuck Boyd just 
came through the door. He is working on an idea for making his second 
million; he's afraid that he will die a pauper. Alice Brack, Pat Healey, and 
Al Bradac have never gotten over the fact that they graduated from High 
School. They are discussing the fact when Frank Brodnik arrives after hav- 
ing fulfilled his ambition and made a million. He made it in Andy Bubonic's 
Pool Room. 

As you probably have noticed by now, our class was and is a very successful 
one. To prove the point is living evidence, John Callahan, who became a 
millionaire over night by becoming a contestant on "Truth or Consequences" 
and telling who Al Capone was. Master of Ceremonies, Ralph Campbell, is 
trying to get his sponsor, Bill Hughes, to let him quit and become a contes- 
tant. He tells us that he saw Allen Carlson driving back and forth on the 
Lakeland Freeway trying to find a place to turn off. Allen is now a preacher; 
we hope he arrives before morning. 

Dick Clouser is coming up the walk and it seems as though he is finally win- 
ning an argument with Angelo Dragonette about whether Marilyn Courtot 
is really the world's champion woman wrestler. 

Thirty-six 



Gil Conlon just passed by and it seems as though he may be enjoying himself, 
and so fulfill his ambition. 

Beverly Crabtree has got her man and from the way things look now she is 
not having such an easy time of keeping him. She was seen in Rose Marie 
Fletcher's Pet Shop buying a leash and harness. 

Don Dallas, recently appointed Head of National Parks, is wandering around 
the grounds with a bouquet of Ivy Poison trying to find out what it is. 
George Evans, basketball coach at Harvard is trying to explain to Ruth Ann 
Fletcher why she cannot attend Harvard. Bill Ferguson, new owner of the 
Stork Club, is complaining about paying a nickel for a coke at the pop stand. 
Nancy Gerjevic is expected to be here shortly, for as soon as she heard of this 
great reunion she boarded a plane, at Richard Schultz's Air Field, and flew 
back to the U. S. A. from India, where she has been retired since the fall of 
'49. 

Eleanor Germano and Florence Gole have just decided life is too tough; they 
would rather go back to Mr. Smith and his co-op class and hear some good 
jokes. 

Eileen Knific is private secretary to Cornelia Zimmerman, who is making her 
millions by writing speeches for Allan Just, who is running for the office of 
Chief Engineer at the office of Jerry McVeen, contractor, who is in charge 
of building the new reservoir and filtration plant that is to replace the old 
one located at Chardon Road and St. Clair Avenue. It was recently 
condemned by Ray Loushin, city inspector. 

Jean Jones tells me that she finally found a job. Jean works for Bryan Jones 
in his exclusive Florist Shop located in one of Euclid's "Better Districts" on 
200 Street. She waters the plants faithfully every day. 

Polly Klisuric not only fulfilled her ambition to go to the University of Michi- 
gan, but was recently appointed Dean of Girls. Dr. Robert E. Marvar is Dean 
of Boys. Polly and Bob see quite a bit of Lenore Jerebek lately. She is still 
trying to get that certain person through college. Gene Vollmer is helping 
her a little. 

Dolores Hochevar's ambition certainly proved a fruitful one. She got that 
'34 Ford she wanted in '49. She is now charging the kids in the neighbor- 
hood a dime a look. 

Richard Janik is enjoying life these days. His only job is that of teaching 
Ted Grubbs how to play chess. The other day he discovered the horrible 
truth. All these years he has been teaching Ted how to play checkers. 
Carol Malm, elementary teacher in Euclid, says that she saw Paul Maczuga, 
the man with the muscle, in a concession at Euclid Beach last week. 
Dolly Radio recently purchased the Cleveland Indians. She has employed 
Lucy Mastrostefano as her private secretary. Lucy's job is to keep track of 
all the times the Indians have won the pennant and the world series. Last 
year made the tenth time since 1949. 

Phyllis McNeilly, a successful business woman, opened a huge department 
store yesterday. News photographers Dave Hollis and Bill Morgan took some 
fine pictures (shown elsewhere) and Frank Reilly, Editor of Reilly's Bazaar, 
wrote the story. In the Jewelry Department Joan Olesinski was showing the 
priceless pearls of Jim Potts to Barbara Zupanic, local woman of fame. Ev- 
elyn Ranker and Rose Miklus are doing super-sleuthing jobs of store detec- 
tives. 

jane Wilson has just returned from her trip around the world. With her 
was Mary Kay Ohnemus. On a pier in New York they saw Wilma Mersnik 
"seeing the world." 

We just received word that Barbara Sanders was chosen "Mrs. America of 
1959," and Jerry Noda, "Mr. America of 1959." 

Leo Troha has succeeded in fulfilling his ambition to work for one of the 
richest men in the world. He runs a Ford Repair Shop, with Carl Zele as 
chief mechanic. 

Steve Palsa and John Petrenchik are successful farmers in Richmond Heights. 
Kathryn Roach has perfected an exterminating compound for Steve and John 
to use to rid their crops of unwanted company. 

Mary Perme is going to dance the "Dance of Death" for us tonight to the 
music of Frank Sajn's accordion. We hope she won't take it too seriously. 
Eleanor Praprotnik has taken over the part of Taloola Fene, home maker, on 
the Milton Berle show. 

Frank Tomaric joined the Air Corps the other day and found Bob Stahre was 
to be his commander. Bob and Frank get along fine. Frank's bigger than 
Bob!! 

Thirty-seven 



Bill Schultz was seen walking down the Norman Misheck Highway, (it got 
its name from Norman Misheck) , by handsome, manly, rich Ray Stone. 
People say Ray has made quite a success of himself. Ray asked Bill where 
he was going and Bill told him he was trying to make the walk of life suc- 
cessfully. 

Arlene Schnur and Albina Sheller are private secretaries to Dale Walker. 
Their only job is that of getting Dale into college. 

Ray Stampfel's ambtion was to get through life before dying. From the way 
things look: so far, so good!! 

In Florida at the famous Cypress Gardens, Lawrence Reiter paints pictures 
of Greta Verbsky, soloist in Hugh Scott's all-girl orchestra. — Naturally Hugh 
and Lawrence are both very happy in their work. 

Ray Loushin and Bob Rath, retired business men at 25, have employed Wini- 
fred Willis to handle financial problems. They advanced Jack Sharpe enough 
money to open a dancing studio, so he could teach Mike Tarasco how to 
dance. 

Oh, yes!!! The news just came that Rocco Baldassarre has just been ap- 
pointed Head of the Federal Board of Education. He cannot be with us be- 
cause he has to go to the initiation of Jim Egensperger who has recently been 
chosen truant officer for Euclid Senior High School. 

Bill Gent has hired Dorothy Kokos, private secretary, to figure up just how 
much profit he has made by manufacturing doorknobs for gypsies so they 
can open the door and look into the future. 

John Golinar is sitting on a bench under a nearby tree. He hasn't accom- 
plished much since graduation. He is still trying to figure out how Joe Luzar 
graduated from High School. 

Helen Snider is a switchboard operator with Bell Telephone Company. WSRS, 
Cleveland's largest station, has Alberta Sheller and John O'Neil as their only 
good disc jockeys. 

Tom Skiff and Dan Volpe are making their millions by sleeping on beds in 
May Company windows. By the way, the May Company has now changed 
hands and is owned by the fabulous James Williamson. 

Chemistry Professor, Dennis Kiehl, is telling about the time he asked his 
class what they considered the most outstanding contribution chemistry has 
made to the world. His leading student, Robert Koren, first to answer, 
shouted, "Blondes"! ! 

A few minutes ago Joan Grze who has worked her way up from the Order 
Department to the presidency of Bryant Heater Division, nervously asked a 
prominent astronomer, Dick Hochevar, whether it was possible for the atom- 
ic bomb to destroy the earth. "Suppose it does," said Dick, "it isn't as though 
the earth were a major planet." 

Ted Hopes rented a car from Mary Frances Snyder to drive to this great re- 
union. When stopped by Chief of Police Norman Lewis for driving back- 
wards, he explained that he was driving the car that way because he had 
rented it on a mileage basis and the speedometer didn't register in reverse.

EUCLID CENTMAL HIGH 



Since 1942 the Euclid Central High School Band has maintained 
its standing as a first-division band in the State Contest. It was selected as 
the Clinic Band for the Music Educators National Convention in 1946. Dur- 
ing the football season the band is always ready with a new routine each 
week. As a concert band they are seen at Gala Night, Big Night, Patrons' 
Concert, and Concert In Swing. The band members have placed a high num- 
ber of winners in the Greater Cleveland Solo and Ensemble Contest. The 
efforts of each member and the director, Mr. Dale Harper, has given Euclid 
Central a band to be proud of. An average of eight-five public appearances 
each year keeps bands members very busy. The band also plays at the five 
Euclid Schools to acquaint the pupils with the different instruments and dif- 
ferent types of music.

Consisting of 120 voices, the Choir is one of the largest 
and one of the "best." They meet in the Little Theatre first; 
period. They have sung at the Baptist Church, Church of

go to the contest in spring. 

They are now doing "Battle Hymn," "Comin' Thru the

Night," "Largo" (Handel's) , "Skip to Ma Lou," "Shew Me Thy 
Way," "Lord of Hosts," "Pilgrim's Chorus, "In the Still of the 
Night,' "Where the Blue of the Sky," and Christmas music in- 
cluding Waring's "Night Before Christmas." 




The Orchestra under the direction of Mr. Dale Harper is one of the out- 
standing musical organizations at Euclid Central. Evening programs such as 
Junior and Senior Plays, Commencement, and several others are assisted by 
this group. Their performance in the Patrons' Concerts is enjoyed by many 
Euclid music lovers. The Orchestra has distinguished itself several times by 
taking first place in the Greater Cleveland Orchestra Contest of the Class A 
Croup.

JUNIOR HIGH BAND 

With an enrollment of thirty-five members, Mr. Albert Mitchel organ- 
ized the Euclid Central Junior High Band in 1942. Since then the band has 
doubled in size. The band gave its firct concert in 1943, and now it gives 
two concerts a year, plays for Junior High Night, Big Night and Junior High 
Assemblies. The band has taken the most first places in the Greater Cleve- 
land Contest in 1947. The members have placed high in the Cleveland Solo 
and Ensemble Contest also. The junior band gives experience to the mem- 
bers that is very valuable as this leads to a place in the Senior Band.

In the final football season at Euclid Central, the team was not strong 
in victory, but more important, they were strong in sportsmanship. The 
Euclid Central Lion eleven tackled and ran hard. Coach Thompson ex- 
pressed it in these words: "They were the greenest team I have ever had, but 
they played hard until the final gun sounded." The team's "spark plug" was 
the Captain, Rocco Baldassarre. Thanks to the team for the fine spirit you 
have shown us in our last year at Euclid Central.

BASKETBALL 



When the final season of varsity and reserve basketball came to a close 
in March, what the team lacked in victories, they gained in sportsmanship. 
Coach James Calvert's men won only two games, both from Brush, but 
showed well against the others. Meanwhile the reserve squad fought their 
way through the league, ending in a tie for second place. 

The varsity rode a hard-luck wagon, losing most of their games by very 
few points. A sizeable crowd was present at all home games, and the inter- 
est shown in both the varsity and reserve teams was high. 

Garfield was the victor in the Eastern Conference with a victory streak 
that stretched out over 19 scheduled games.

At the beginning of the 1949 baseball season, Coach Al Miller made 
the statement that he was pleased with the spirit and the size of the turnout 
for the team. Thirty boys, among them five lettermen, started working out 
in February, and built up a team. 

The squad trained strenuously, and lived the part of baseball players. 
During the previous season the team lost only four league games, and it was 
expected to break even in the won-lost columns. A rigid schedule was set 
up, and the entire school looked forward to the big games. 

With a capable pitching staff and the protection of a tight infield and 
outfield, the Lions nine hoped to show well against the other teams in the 
league.

Always playing with all their heart,

Opening the 1949 track season with a victory march of 20 consecutive 
dual meets to protect, the Lion squad ran hard to build up the string. The 
boys, under the coaching of Dale Thompson, did well in the Arena meet, in 
which they had been placed back into Class "C" after the re-grouping that 
put them into Class "B" Competition last year. 

Captain and Miler Matt D'Arcy led the "thinly dads" to many of the 
large relay meets, where the runners, jumpers, and weight men put out their 
best. 

The team had five lettermen from the 1948 season, and built a sub- 
stantial team out of the 25 boys who reported in January.

BADMINTON 

In badminton Mary Jo Replogle, 
Pat Healey, and Lois Kling were 
class champions in the tenth, elev- 
enth, and twelfth grades respect- 
ively. After a playoff series, Lois 
Kling came out victor and school 
champion. 



BASKETBALL 

The junior class took most of the honors in 
basketball. There was a playoff game at a 
later date between a junior and senior home- 
room to determine the school championship.

VOLLEYBALL 

Volleyball was the sport most enjoyed 
by the seniors this year. Homerooms 1 1 
and 105 had a playoff game to decide the 
championship team. 



BASEBALL 

The younger girls were more in- 
terested in baseball than in intra- 
mural games, which were played 
after school. A capacity number of 
girls came out for this sport.

This year the junior high girls took a great interest in 
sports. 

In the basketball intramurals Mr. Apple's and Mr. Smith's 
homerooms came out victorious. A hard fought playoff game 
was finally won by the girls of Mr. Smith's homeroom. 

As the senior high girls, the junior high girls also had a bad- 
minton playoff. Suzie Johnson captured the honors in this 
individual series. 

Volleyball and softball were the other sports enjoyed by 
the girls in seventh, eighth and ninth grades. 

This year the junior high girls have a chance to win letters, 
resembling the senior high C.A.A. emblems. One hundred 
points are required to earn this letter. 

Another new arrangement in the junior high is student 
sport managers. Martha Hazzard takes care of badminton 
while Suzie Johnson manages basketball. Kay Moschell has the 
duty of managing the volleyball games, and softball is under the 
supervision of Doris Kling.

On the nights of April 29, 30, the Senior Class put on an excellent per 
tormance of "My Cousin From Texas." This hilarious farce took place in 
the heme of Beulah Scott, the Frivolous mother of Sheila, Lucille and Wilbur, 
a mischievous boy of nine. Sheila Scott was about to be married to Preston 
Rogers; she was not very excited about it because she could not erase from 
her mind the memory of johnny Benton, a young man she'd known for a 
brief two weeks during her summer vacation. It was the day before her 
wedding; the Scotts were expecting a visit from "Cousin Tommy" from 
I exas, whom they had never seen before. When Johnny arrived at the 
house, he was mistaken for "Cous : n Tommy" and decided to carry on the 
masquerade. He convinced Sheila that she was really in love with him and 
they had to find a way to get her marriage postponed. Their efforts to do 
this provided several riotous scenes; this was calmed moderately by Sheila's 
friend, Doris's common sense. Then Cactus Kelly, a cowboy, made 
his appearance, johnny believed Cactus was the real "Cous ; n Tommy" and 
Cactus, for reasons of his own. encouraged this belief; so Johnny passed Cac- 
tus off as his twin brother, "Timmy." Just when he thought everything was 
going smoothly, the real "Cousin Tommy" showed up in the person of Toma- 
sina, a beautiful young girl! Johnny, in desperation, claimed her a relation, 
too, telling the others they are triplets; Tommy, Timmy, and Tomasina! 
Added to the hilarity were the two colored characters, Peaceful, the Scotts' 
maid and Eshew, Johnny's valet.

JANIE 



On November 19-20 the Junior Class presented the three-act comedy "Janie" from the 
movie and Broadway hit of the same name. 

Janie had the advantage of timeliness, being laid in a town near an army camp, telling 
what happened when a cavalcade of exuberant young fellows in uniform met a group of high 
school young ladies whose parents were the worrying type. 

The fun started in the Colburn household when Mrs. Lawrence, a flirtatious Southern 
widow, arrives for a visit with her son, Dick, stationed at the near-by camp. The doting 
mother, who has been continually following her son is side-tracked by a susceptible bachelor 
who is also a guest of the Colburns. 

When Janie and Dick and a few friends got together for a little innocent fun while their 
parents are out, the party got out of hand. The plot is also complicated a little by Janie's 
seven-year old sister, Elsbeth, an amusing child with a flair for making a nuisance of herself.

School bells rang in order to say, 

The fall term of "48" begins today. 

The Echo opened the first week of school, 

With a dance that pleased everyone, even the fool. 

The Y-Teen Club held a Bonfire Rally, 

To urge girls to join, without dilly-dally. 

The Leaders worked hard and did their best. 

And as a result their dance was a success. 

We lost our game to Brush, this week; 

But here's hoping our boys, a victory do seek. 

The Homecoming Came was won with much effort; 

While Reita Williams was crowned queen, at the game 

against Bedford. 

A special assembly, presented by a Broadway team, 

Was "The Taming of the Shrew" and "Midsummer Night's 

Dream." 

All have been waiting for this 'No School' day, 

You see, this is N. E. O. T. A. Day. 

The Eighth Graders had fun and did eat hearty; 

For on this day was their annual party. 

The Senior A's did things up right; 

They had a great dance, which was on this night. 

Gala Night brought out a crowd; 

The acts were great, applause was loud. 

The Senior High Dance was really smooth; 

The band was surely in the groove. 

The Junior class had a very good play. 

The name was "Janie"; it was really gay. 

The Freshmen, as usual, had a grand time, 

At their annual party, which turned out very fine. 

The "Concert in Swing" by our first place band, 

Has become a regular feature, it really is grand. 

Everyone did eat of turkey and dressing. 

School closed two days; Oh! what a blessing. 

The Opus Dance was a grand success; 

The trio was good, everyone did confess. 

The Patron's Concert, the first of the year, 

Played good music, which we like to hear. 

The Friendship Formal was said by all 

To have been a great success, just like a Ball. 

While the alumni, for winning, were shouting with joy, 

To Mr. and Mrs. Koth, was born a darling baby boy. 

Christmas vacation gave us a rest; 

Now we're back in school to do our best. 

The pictures taken came out very well; 

Of course, they are for the Opus; swell! 

The Snowball Dance was a great success; 

Being sponsored by the Echo, what else can we expect. 

The Senior Banquet, all confessed; 

Being held at Rondini's, was a great success. 

Senior Day Assembly, a variety show, 

Thrilled all students, we really know. 

Baccaulaureate Service on Sunday P. M., 

A message to the class, followed by a hymn. 

Seniors all, on Commencement Night, 

Marched down the aisle in maroon and white. 

The first semester of school came to an end; 

A change of classes, and teachers, and maybe a new friend

As we see not all the talent is in the Sr. High gang. 
25 The Senior High Dance was a real success; 

All that were there agreed it was the best.

A talented school we have, as you have already guessed.

"My Cousin from Texas" really brightened the day.

The message was directed to everyone, whether short or

The last day of school did finally'arrive.
