SENIOR OF THE WEEK
By Eleanor Barkley
This senior girl is the youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. Lester King. Mildred Elaine King, well-known member of the class of '51, was born Oct. 16, 1932, south of Jerome, Iowa. She has three older brothers and one older sister.
Mildred has dark brown hair and eyes, is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 135 pounds. She began her schooling at Jerome and received her eighth grade diploma from Numa.
Mildred likes fried chicken as her favorite food. The movie "Annie Get Your Gun" rated first, and Esther Williams is her leading movie star. She like the book "Jane Eyre" best and lists shorthand as her preferred subject. Royal blue is her specific color and summer her favorite season of the year.
When the radio is on the "Judy Canova Show" leads as her favorite program. Singer "Hank Snow" and the music of Skitch Henderson's orchestra are her musical preferences. For a pastime she likes to visit.
This senior girl is a staunch Warriorette and basketball has played an important role in her high school career. Her activities are: basketball 4 years, honorable mention on Jack North's all state team and I.D.P.A all state team, band 1 year, waitress Junior-Senior banquet two years, Carnival Queen of 1950, Attendant of Homecoming Queen, "S" Club.
Mildred's pet peeve is having to wait for someone or something. Her most exciting moment hasn't happened yet.
The different activities offered are what she likes best about S.H.S. To improve it she would like a more even distribution of heat in the school building.
Mildred is taking a commercial course but says her plans are indefinite.
