Springfield High School Class of 1951

Social Science

During this period of "cold" and "hot" wars, the Social Science Club and the Philirenean Society have decided to work together temporarily. Supervised by Miss Ruth Ackerson, the Social Science Club tries to mold a more definite interest among its members in the adaptation of their social science courses to the history and activities of our community. Advised by Mr. Ralph Thornburg, the Philirenean society members sell candy, pennants and ribbons at the various school games, and try not to lose sight of their original purpose — The Peace Club.

Portraying the signing of the Springfield city chapter are Bill Kirkham, Norman Myers, Nancy Shaw, President Pat Dillon, V. Pres. Don Morris, Joanne Ringer, Treasurer charles Brougher, and Ronald Rowand.


Jerry McFadden, Ronald Adams, Christine Boyer, Treasurer Sue Shaffer, Marjorie Kennon, and Peggy Collins demonstrate one way philirenean raises money to support a hundred-dollar scholarship which is given each June to an outstanding student.
