FLAGLER BEACH – Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom

In a picturesque setting, the senior class of the Flagler county high school sailed “away on the sea of life” last Friday night aboard a ship of rainbow hue. The boat, forty feet long and twelve feet wide, occupied the center of the Flagler Beach hotel dining room where the class of ’33 was dined by the juniors. The sides of the vessel were pink and green, junior colors, with the inside a solid mass of purple verbenas. At the stern of the boat a huge rainbow, the senior class colors, could be seen through the pennants and streamer festooned overhead, while an anchor hung over the starboard bow. The guests were heralded to the dining salon by the ships gong, and the address of welcome by “Captain” Lillo Johnson, president of the junior class was followed by the future prophesy of the upper classmen by ‘’Chiefmate” June Brown, secretary, and a reply to the juniors by Chief Engineer Donald Brooks. First Officer Albert Mountcastle addressed the officers in command. Norma Durrance, first officer, extended a vote of thanks to pilot P. K. Platts who responded with a few words of advice to the graduating class. Admiral Z. E. Booe pictured the destination of the officers and crew through childhood, manhood, matrimony, and old age. With the final class song the diners joined more than a hundred and fifty guests who danced until midnight to music by Eddie’s Dixie Aces of Daytona Beach.

Members of the senior class were: Pauline Buckles, Catherine Cyzycki, Josephine Aikins, Hazel Buckles, Mary Alice Metcalf, Sigmund Norwicki, Raymond Tucker, Donald Brooks, Billy Owen, Charles Parker, William Cobb, Albert Keifer. Chaperones were: Mrs. Dale Brown, Mrs. Homer Miller, Mrs. J. H. McKnight, Mrs. W. S. Spaulding.
