SHIRLEY COOPER – Greeley, Colorado was the setting for the surprise given Mr. and Mrs. Cooper on the 13th of May. Her hobby is collecting pictures personally autographed. Her pastime is dancing, eating, and sleeping. She likes honesty and good looking clothes but dislikes milk and cream and dishonesty. “Moonlight Serenade” is her favorite song and “Another Man’s Poison” is her choice of the books. Spanish and History are her favorite subjects and she is as good as her sister when it comes to school work. Likes light blue. Her ambition is to become a great actress, for the acting part and not just being known as a great actress!!
From the October 11, 1940 Mar-Ken Journal:
•WHO’S WHO: The Coopers – While strolling around the campus if you think you see an optical illusion, look twice. It’s only Shirley and Charlotte. They both love dancing and swimming. Acting and singing is the career they’re headed for. We’re sure you two seniors will succeed.
•The Cooper twins presented their harmony rendition as part of the entertainment at the Mar-Ken Get Acquainted Party given by the school faculty on the evening of September 27.
From the November 20, 1940 Mar-Ken Journal:

From 1941 Mar-Ken Yearbook, as a Senior:
Shirley Cooper. Shirley’s likes and dislikes are almost the same as her twin sister’s, although she especially likes blue Oldsmobiles and singing in a quintette. She is an authority in that branch of science known as Physiology, and is able to inform the public that there is a distinct difference between the tarsal and metatarsals in the foot.
