Mr. Santa Claus
North Pole Headquarters
I don't know if you remember us from the past years or not, but we have at last become seniors at S.F.X.A. and would like for you to help us in any way possible to secure the things that we would like to have for Christmas. We have all been good girls and would enjoy having the following items:
Shirley Habeeb, one of our car loving seniors, would like a red Thunderbird so she can take all her friends riding.
Mary Ann K., who has suddenly become interested in motorcycles, wants a pink and black speedy one so she can keep up with a certain boy.
Shirley Mullen says if you just bring her one big "Hershey" she'll be satisfied.
In our midst, Santa, we have Delia Durst, who would really like some extra money in her stocking to pay for these phone calls to Pennsylvania 6-5000.
Poor little Wanda Hampton has been waiting for a Teddy Bear for so long. We should just put "TED" for short. Try real hard Santa to bring one for her.
Jeanette Given says she has about everything she wants, but would you please bring her the pair of blue rosaries in Strauss-Stallings window. I'm sure she could use them.
Janice Jabour, our little "bop-bop" senior, would like some dresses to wear to the dances during the holidays. She would appreciate them very much.
I know you may think this is silly, but Mary Brunini wants a figure. She wants to be a rich-ch-ch-ch woman, so someone will marry her.
There is one senior who just can't seem to wait for her hair to grow so she can wear a pony tail. Santa, if you have an artificial pony tail would you please bring it to Jo Nohra.
One of our many basketball players, Mary Campbell, wants you to leave her a basketball goal in the backyard so she can practice during her spare time.
Santa, Sister Mary Assumpta, our class sponsor did not say what she wants, but we know she would like for you to bring her another senior class next year just as good as we are!
Well, bye for now, Santa, and don't forget the seniors of S.F.X.A.
