Class of 1952. Barbara Wolsey. Y'ld Cat Newspaper, Chorus, Notre Maison, Fauvines, Soph Class Social Chair. Married Dean E. Wilcox. ~ ~ ~ ~ Memories flood back to me as I think about the new Academy library being opened soon. I am so happy the Education Building was spared from demolition and made into a beautiful and useful reminder of historic lower campus of BYU. I was a student at B.Y. High School from 1946 until 1952, so many of my formative experiences were obtained there. All of the buildings were old even then, but we weren't concerned about that. Most of the high schools in the area were old at that time. I remember hearing that they were planning a new Provo High School and that we would all have to go there. I was glad it didn't happen until after I left, because I loved B.Y. High. I attended a speech class in the lower level of College Hall. In that same level were practice rooms for BYU music students. The upper level was an assembly hall where most of B.Y. High's drama productions were held, along with all our student assemblies and Jr. High graduations. I fell in love with Thornton Wilder's play, "Our Town" when it was performed by B.Y. High students in 1947. My friends and I participated in many assemblies on that same stage. I attended a few classes in the Education Building -- bookkeeping, eugenics, journalism, chemistry and chorus. There was a small bookstore there where could buy pencils, notebooks, etc., and occasionally a candy bar. Most of the candy bars cost 5 cents, but once in awhile we could afford to buy a "Powerhouse" for 10 cents. What a treat! Most of our classes were held in the Arts Building. Room 250A was on the second floor and was the largest room in the building. It had a stage at one end and was used as a multi-purpose room. Classes, chorus practices, plays, pep club practices and dances were held in 250A. The ninth grade play was performed there in 1949 and I was in it. I think I had one line. One memorable event in connection to 250A was the Sophomore Ball held in the spring of 1950. I was the Sophomore Class Social Chairman along with Roger Bown. We were in charge of class parties. We spent hours decorating 250A with a false ceiling of crepe paper streamers and wrapping tree branches with green and pink paper blossoms. We thought the room looked like a fantasy land. We Sophomores had all turned sixteen during the year, and we had new drivers' licenses. The boys had borrowed the family cars, and we felt very independent. We were just too enthralled with this newfound freedom to stay indoors, so we danced a couple of times and then left the dance, climbing into the autos to "drag Center'. Then we drove all the way up the canyon to the Weight family cabin in Wildwood. We were very excited to be so far away from campus, and we felt very grown-up. It was a memorable time, even if we didn't do much dancing at our Sophomore Ball. I have in my possession the part of the frame from over the door that says 250A. It was given to me by my friend, Arnolene Snow Anderson. As the Arts Building was being torn down, she entered and asked a workman to remove that part of the door frame for so she could give it to me. It is a reminder of many memories of dear old B.Y. High. By Barbara Wolsey Wilcox, Orem. [Provo Daily Herald, September 7, 2001.]
