Miss Hazel Straight Adviser

WE, the Class of '28, have at last reached the goal and obtained the ideal for which we have striven for four years. The memories of this school life are poignantly sweet. They make our trials seem small and insignificant when we recall the joys and pleasures that have been ours during this span of time.

A group of greener Freshmen had never been seen as we entered the portals of Allegany County High School. The way was rough and uncertain and it seemed at times that we should stumble and fall by the wayside. We finished the year by studying and striving to become worthy of the name "Sophomores."

Before entering the second term we were surprised and delighted by the news that we would have a new high school in our community. We were removed to Pennsylvania Avenue High School and our class was lucky in the one respect that we never had to bow to upper classmen again. We met new teachers, made new friends, and put forth every effort to keep up the reputation which we had made as Freshmen.

When we became Sophomores we took the lead in this new school as Seniors do in other high schools. Penn Hi first made itself known by the dramatic productions which we gave during that memorable year. Our misfortunes and troubles were great but we fought them and conquered with the help of our wonderful adviser, Miss Straight.

The very thought that in a few months we would be Juniors was enough to place us in the heights of ecstasy. We had had many wonderful times during our second year of high school life. We knew what it was to organize clubs and arrange for social activities. Our class was firmly and strongly united and we faced our trials and tribulations together. The climax of a very successful year came when we held a Sophomore class picnic. The day was heavenly and the picnic eats very refreshing.

Jolly Juniors! We certainly lived up to our name that third year. Under a new principal and with several new faculty members we established a name and reputation for ourselves and our school. Exams were horrible. We could not understand just why Juniors have to be put through such torture. The whole third year was short and very enjoyable.

It was a very sad faced group of Seniors that waited at the door of Penn Hi in September, 1927. Just to think of having only one more year in which to do our best for the school we loved, was enough to make the most hard-hearted student
