1948 Speech Team
The speech classes, coached by Mr. Hays, were outstanding in their record of
accomplishment. As part of their class work they conducted weekly story hours
for children at the public library. The students above won honors at the district
speech contest as follows--From left: Dick Bentz, first place in Oratory;
Ray Schumacher, first place in Extemporaneous; Mr. Hays; Betty Hoffman,
second place in Poetry reading; Chuck Beck, first place in Radio Reading.
Dick Bentz won additional honors for himself by taking first place in the
Toastmaster's Club contest.
Other members took part in various contests throughout the year and participated
in assembly programs. Since the majority of these students had little or no previous
training their achievement is even more to their credit.
