We wefe twenty-two strong. Our pilot Barbara Meyer, put on her ear 'phones and we left, the field. She had as her capable and willv in« assistants, co-jiilot, Kobert Pcrgandc, secretary in charge, Geneva W ilscn, and treasurer , oi the tickets. Lowell Thomas. Mist Lillian Roggovv had tne iront.sea, as supervisor. We sailed through the nine months 'trip in super- low, but that .was only because we were unaccustomed to high school life, pur' course included stops for general science, • Algebra I, English I, manual traininc ar.d home economics. We finished L the fij'st leg -of our trip and lost one member Shirley wilier, who transferred to the ','Tyke Limited." We had u 1 three months breather after which we re-assembled to find Aye had all grown in leaps and bounds in all directions. When r oll had been taken, we found,ourselves five students' to the good.

His jssistants Wesley Brayton, Marcia Downs and Geneva Wilson provided us with all the comforts of'home. We made stops for biology, world history, English II and geometery. For some it was pretty rough riding over geometry. Merlyn cased the wheels into place and sat us down easily as we completed our second lap. Our sponsor Miss Joy Burdick was well satisfied with our trip. Once again we re-convened after a short vacation, this time to choose James Phillips as our leader. Robert Stauffacher, Delores Lund and Celia Bowman filled the positions as his assistants. It was Miss Betty Connor's job to eye on us, lest we stray. Tliis trip is well remembered as '.here were many stops. The most important bzing for junior business training, economics, Algebra II, vocations, American literature, American history, typing and the junior and senior banquet.
