Assembled together for the last time, awaiting our diplomas, vve suddenly realize that the wonderful times we have shared are quickly drawing to a close. Years spen I tak ing part in the various school activities will become part of our past. Memories will serve as the only link between the school we love and the future that lies before us. As the commencement program progresses, my thoughts, along with those of my classmates. slowly drill back to the bright September morning in 1941 when this new life opened for us. W ith a slight adjustment, grammar school became an important phase of our life. Climl ring the steps of knowledge, we also found time lor our toy orchestra, instruction in art. and our daily baseball game. Soon we rea bed our senior year at grammar school, and wi ill il came the crowning ol the Queen and King of May, the lirst publication of Lo- l imes. the grammar school newspaper, and the general anticipation of entering Junior I ligh the lollowing year. Junior High was everything we had expected. Mr. W illis became principal our first year and helped us to become a part of the school that means so much to us today. After the inevit able confusion of the lirst few days, we became accustomed to changing classes: and in a short time we were a very important part of the school. With our studies well in hand, we undertook our first play—'Captain John Smith, which we thought was an excellent portrayal. Our final year in Junior High brought about several fhanges. We began to take an active part in Junior I ligh Student Council, the basketball tournaments, and various clubs. As the freshmen of Aiken High, we moved ahead in the field of sports and became interested in elections and the various school publications. Our sophomore year followed with parties and dances. For the first time we real- ized the value of the social phases of school life. I he summer following our sophomore year, vve made our first attempt to raise money by having concessions at baseball games. At last we were Juniors! I he Savannah River Project increased the size of our student body as well as the size ol the city ol Aiken. We welcomed the new students that joined our class and together we shared a very eventful year. We began to hold important positions on I li limes, "Pine Needles." and I he Hornet. National I lonor Society tapped several of our classmates, and vve learned to work together for the goal we were to reach. As Juniors vve recognized the fact that we must start raising money to entertain the Seniors. so vve peddled peanuts at loot ball games, sponsored the Junior Class Dance, and presented I he Skeleton Walks." I he highest point of our Junior year, the fabulous Junior-Senior Banquet and Dance, was held aboard the S. S. Starliner. And then, suddenly we were Seniors, proudly displaying our class rings. Our goal was Washington, and again plans for raising money were carefully considered. We started our campaign with a loothall game between the Seniors and Underclassmen; then came the annual Harvest Carnival and Rest Assured. our hilarious Senior play. Our Senior trip was assured and we arrived in Washington during the most colorful season. All to quickly we were home again, looking forward to the closing events of our Senior year. The crowning ol the May Queen and the delight-ful banquet given in our honor by the Juniors brought to an end the social activities of our high school career. All memories! Y es. but wonderful ones. Now as vve are together for the last time to receive our diplomas, we know that Aiken High will always hold a special place in our hearts. Years may dim our recollection. I ime its change may bring. Still thy name in fond affection Evermore we sing. B. D.JUNIORS WRAY DAVIS. BOYCE BELL BOBBY OSBON.

I lowever, with a group of inexperienced, hut willing boys, the team, coached by Burliest Neel and Wallace Berry, came through with great success. In the season s opening game. Aiken, playing great defensive ball, won by a score of 7 to f from a very strong Barnwell team. In the next outing. Eau Claire of Columbia, found also that the I lornet s defensive was much too strong, and they loo fell. Score: 12 to 0. I hen came tin game with North Augusta—Aiken’s ardent rival. Going into the game a slight underdog, the Hornets held the Yellow Jackets to a scoreless lie. As if to compensate for this 0-0 game. Aiken s annual Cotton I estival saw the Hornets roll over the Graniteville Rocks with a score of I I to 0. For the next three weeks, the I lornels lost their buzz, and Orangeburg. Catholic High of Augusta, and Brookland-Cayoe ol Cayce gloried in their respective victories of I I to 7. -16 to 14. and 11-0. Aiken s homecoming crowd witnessed a successful I I to 0 score against Batesburg-Leesville as tin- Hornets bounced back into action, lo prove this sudden bounce-back, the Hornets defeated Newberry by a score of 10 to (). In the next game ol the season Aik en once again felt tin1 pangs of defeat when Lexington scored on a kick-off return and a punt return, leaving the I fornets behind with I $ to 0. Still, the Aiken spirit rose lor the final game as the I fornets stung Saluda for a 31 to 6 victory to end the 1952 season in true Aiken style. Aiken s flanks found three outstanding pass receivers and bloc kers in James I lall. James Bourque, and Edmund Cortez, while Robert Duncan stood out as a great defensive end. At tackles were Buddy Lyons, an offensive specialist; Wayne Pack, a true bloc ker and tac klcr: I illman Johnson, a great man for both offensive and defensive; and Walter Bass, an excellent defensive man. In the guard slots were two sixty-minute men of great ability— Sam Ouzts and Rudolph Moseley, while Ronnie Qualtlebaum played center. Ronnie is an outstanding all-round player who excels at hard blocks and vicious tackles. Smooth working Hugh I'orresl carried the quarterback position, with George ilson as his understudy. At lullhack was Gary Seigler. a triple threat at running, passing and punting. In the halfback posts wore Donnie Lulmor and Bobby Gunnels— Fulmer, a fast broken field runner and Gunnels, a shifty back, excelling on defense. Supporting the spirit of the I fornets and these men were Carl Young. Ernest Woodward. I'oley I hornlon. bred Maxwell. Donald Smith. Herndon McKlmurray. Emory Williams. Ronnie Upton.

C. 112All our vows renew. . . .Yes. the last line of our Alma Mater rings as tire final touch is added to what will he the 1953 Hornet. Looking hack, we recall many hours of labor and toil, but also moments of laughter and fun. Our staff was no different from any other. We began work early, but with the arrival of the deadline we were in a state of complete frenzy and absorption. Now that our task is completed we eagerly await spring and the distribution of the Hornet. A special appreciation goes to Miss Mary Lou Barlow, our faculty adviser, who was always willing to give any word of advice when needed. Many thanks to Mr. J. O. Willis and all the faculty members who so patiently tolerated our many interruptions and the many inconveniences we caused them. I o Terry Palmer, whose cleverly prepared work added much to our book, we extend a word of gratitude. And finally we offer our thanks to you, the student body, for the privilege of recording one of your high school years. -THE EDITOR. 113114 • . 1. , . •»- r,r • ■ • r - •LI TL J? y • SSKmVvt •-x- y -v b%$ ;y£ MiiC - t 7y r V •»■• ♦ j , k-’ XT3 » ,.
