Death of Student
On Friday morning, February 16, the students of T.C.H. came to school as usual, some on buses, some in cars, and some
walking. As each boy or girl entered the building that particular day, he or she sensed a feeling of sadness, for there was not the merriment and laughter that usually reigns over the school. A call had just been received telling of the death of Romaine BILBREY everyone was sad because of the loss of one of the most popular boys as T.C.H.
Romaine died Friday morning from what the doctors thought to be meningitis. He only attended T.C.H. one-half year but during this time he gained many friends in the school.
Romaine always seemed happy and care-free even up until the time he became sick. His always happy smile will be missed in every class in which he was a member, and he will be missed at his position on the floor at the basketball games.
The students and faculty of T.C.H. extend their sympathy to his parents and relatives.
