Senior Class History
When the class of '25 first entered the doors of C. U. H. S. on September 15, 1922, there were twenty-three timid little Freshmen. But we soon lost the timid feeling after we were duly initiated at the Freshmen Reception in October. As this was the first event given in our honor, I am sure we shall always remem¬ber it. During the year a few members were added to our class, making it the largest crass that had ever entered the Courtland High School. Our class was well represented in athletics by both the boys and the girls. The Freshmen also proved their ability to act when they presented two well-acted plays: "Shake¬speare Up-To-Date" and "The Kleptomaniac.– Thus our first year ended happily for everyone in our class.
Roll Call on September 11. 1922, found us with twenty-three members present: although we lost a few members, more entered our class to make up for the less. Naturally, being Sophomores, we felt quite grown up and resolved to do much better during our Sophomore year. We started the social year with a dance that proved very successful. We also set a new tradition, that of the Sophomore Class giving'the Senior Class a banquet at which all had an enjoy¬able time. We again contributed more than our share of members both to the athletic teams and to Dramatics. What we regarded as our greatest achievement during our Sophomore year was the fact that more than half of the Honor Roll was composed of Sophomores.
When our Junior year began we felt much older and wiser, we were still the largest class in school and also felt very important, as we had the reputation of having a "lot of pep" and a great deal of class spirit: also we kept our places on the Honor Roll. Again the majority of the athletic teams and play casts were composed of members of our class.
We gave a Junior Vaudeville, which was a splendid success, there being some very new and novel acts. Our Junior Prom was enjoyed by everyone who attended, and was said to be the social event of the year.
At the opening of this term we felt very important, to think we were Seniors, and that all of the other classes looked up to is as a ''shining example." As usual our class has kept its place on the Honor Roll, in Athletics and in Dramatics. We scarcely realize that our four happy years of high school will shortly be ended: and it is with regret that we will leave the dear old school. 'Our class. on the whole, will graduate with nearly the same students and the same number that entered four years ago, giving us the honor of being the largest class to graduate from C. U. H. S. Our class motto through the four years has been "Live and Learn,– and we feel as though we have learned much in the all too quickly passing of our four years of high school.
