We elected the following class officers: President, James Neale, Vice

We were represented on the basketball team by James Neale, Harry
Lovett and J. D. Grogan. Our classmate, Betty Ahart, was attendant to
the Basketball Queen. We were honored to have another of our classmates,
Sue Thompson, elected as cheerleader. As our Freshman play, we present-
ed "Funny Bratsf' We enjoyed our class picnic at the Kentucky Dam.
At the beginning of our Sophomore year we had twenty-six enrolled
in class. The following students did not return: Norma Jean Bennett,
Barbara Burkeen, Frankie Lee Hurt and Wanda Collins. We were glad
to have Bobbie Jean Darnell, Shirley Alexander, Sue Bonds, James Max
Puckett, Sonny Lockhart and Billy Coursey join our class during the year.
We were represented on the basketball team by Heyward Roberts,
and James Neale. Sue Thompson was again elected cheerleader. Our
candidate for Basketball Queen was Betty Ahart. We presented a three-
act comedy, "Pigtails." Our class picnic was an enjoyable event at the
I We started our Jolly Junior year in 1950 with Mr. Milton Walston

titled "Zeke and Daisy." We enjoyed our J unior-Senior trip to St. Louis.
Now that we are "Dignified Seniors" we have fourteen Seniors en-

Our class officers for the year are Sonny Lockhart, President, James

porter. We are proud to have a classmate, Shirley Ann Alexander, elected
as cheerleader. Our Senior basketball players are Sonny Lockhart and
James Neale. Now that we are ending our high school years, we would like
to thank each teacher for his help during the years. Especially are we
grateful to Mr. W. B. Miller for his guidance during this, our Senior year.
It is twenty years after graduation and I am alone in my room at
the White House, as my husband, the President, is touring Europe. I-am
thinking of my schoolmates and wondering what they are now doing,
when suddenly visions appear.
First, I see Jo Ann Oldham, wife of a United States Air Force
Chaplain and mother of two lovely children, living in Princeton, Kentucky.
J. D. Grogan is going about his daily tasks as Professor of Campus-
ology at Northwestern University.
Mary Frances Lovett is touring the United States, searching for
a male who is willing to become her blushing groom.
Leland Peeler is employed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation
and is investigating the murder of a great magician, husband of the for-
mer Lucille Turner, who claims it was merely an accident.
Modene Duncan, secretary to the Lieutenant Governorbf Kentucky,
has just announced her engagement and approaching marriage to the
Sonny Lockhart, one time great in the N. C. A. A., has purchased
the restaurant formerly known as Finleyfs Drive-In, where he and his wife
are operating a successful business.
Mary Lou Witty, a modern Kentucky novelist, has just written a
book of poems which she calls "Poetry For The Love-Sick."
Peggy Jackson, 'glamour girl of the.1952 Senior Class, has finally
settled down with her husband and twin sons near Dexter, Kentucky.
. Rosetta Wilson is a lovely Calloway County homemaker and house-
Eifetwhlp has recently become a news commentator of W. N. B. S. in Murray,
en uc y.
l i Harry Lovett, husband of the world's greatest ballet dancer, is
driving one of the fastest race cars on the Indianapolis Speedway.
Fannie McClard is now teaching Home Economics at Murray State
College. She had intended to always be an old maid until she met a former
classmate, Dr. James Ne-ale, a San Francisco physician, who stole her
heart and hand.
Last Will and Testament
of the Senior Class
We, the Senior Class of Almo High School, being of sound mind
do ordain and establish this Class Will of 1951-52.
To the Junior Class, as our successors of eminent worth, we leave
our autographed seats, Senior dignity and class -spirit. Be of better be-
havior than we have been and always respect the faculty members to whom
we are deeply grateful for the many patient hours they have spent with us.
To the Sophomores, we leave our good reputation, ability to learn
rapidly and our way of getting along with the teachers.
To the Freshmen, we leave our grit, will, and grace to continue on
through school. "Where there's a will, there's a way."
We leave to individual members of the student body the following
personal possessions, hoping they will be of use to you in the future:
1 - I, Leland Peeler, bequeath my talent as an artist to Jimmy Connor.
2 - I, Peggy Jackson, will my loud mouth to Pearlene Nanneyjso she
won't have to use a loud speaker.
3 - I, Modene Duncan, leave my red hair to Katie Compton. I-Iere's
hoping she doesn't have to dye hers.
4 - I, Harry Lovett, will my handsome features to Jimmy Rutland.
Maybe he will see the time when he's as good looking as I.
5 - I, Rosetta Wilson, bequeath my ability to write Dale's compositions
to Zora Mae Turner.
6 - I, Mary Lou Witty, will my small waistline to Datha Cleaver, so
she will reduce without dieting.
7 - I, J. D. Grogan, will my good natured ways to Max Lovett.
8 - I, Lucille Turner, will my height to Allie Mae Vance so she will be
as tall as her beau.
9 - I, Fannie Mae McClard, bequeath my dignified ways to Patsy
Kingins. Maybe they will be of use to her soon.
10 - I, James Neale, will my ability to make A's to Dale Burkeen.
11 - I, Shirley Alexander, leave my position as cheerleader to Doris
12 - I, Jo Ann Oldham, will my flirty ways to Mattie Ann Lassiter, pro-
vided she will use them as wisely as I have.
13 - I, Sonny Lockhart, will my ability to shoot a basketball with my
left hand to Gary Wicker.
14 - I, Mary Frances Lovett, will my ability to giggle in government
class to Betty Lou Cope.
In witness hereof is attached the signatures of:
' Senior Class Poem of 51-52 B
As you turn the pages of this book so dear,
You'll find that our names are written here.
We, the Almo class of '52,
Treasure the years we've shared with you.
And as the school year comes to an end,
We say "so long" to every friend.
Fannie McClard, the "A" student of the class,
Always works hard and stays to the last.
A Home Economic teacher she plans to be,
I'm glad she'll teach my children instead of me.
Harry Lovett is everyonefs boy,
He says "he winks at the girls just for joy."
He's a swell guy as everyone knows,
Let someone mention skipping school and he's ready to go
Shirley Alexander is hunting a man,
She always looks the best she can.
If she doesn't get one she is going to be hurt,
But that doesn't keep her from being a flirt.
Modene Duncan is very meek and shy,
But everyone is saying "I wonder why ?'
Because if you'll notice those big blue eyes,
You'll see that in them glamour lies.
J. D. Grogan's the master mind of our class,
If you stay withfhim you'll never be last.
Of course J. D. is a very fine kid,
Of all his manners the girls try to rid.
Rosetta Wilson is having the time of her life,
Her ambition is to be a housewife.
There's an old saying: "Temper goes with red hair,"'
But with this gal would that be fair?
Mary Frances Lovett is packed with fun,
When the boys see her they get ready to run.
Altho of her we all are fond,
Of all her gang she's the jolliest one.
Sonny Lockhart's our basketball star,
When there's work to be done he's always far.
But if you will notice his choice of a dame,
Herefs where Sonny comes in for fame.

Senior Class ,Poem ol Sl-52
Lucille Turner is hard to describe, I
Altho over Almo she is known wide.
I've been told her I. Q. is very high,
That's why dumb people pass her by.
James Neale, a physician is planning to be,
And of his success we all want to see.
I'm sure "high" will be his rate,
Unless horror should turn his fate.
Peggy Jackson is known to be loud,
Altho of her we all are proud.
With all her mischief and jokes,
She gets along with the Almo folks.
Leland Peeler with his artistic mind,
I'm sure many paintings of his you'1l find.
I know his career will be a success,
And he will do his very best.
Mary Witty's a very nice kid,
Tell her a joke and her face will get red.
A novelist she plans to be,
And of her career we all agree.
I, Jo Ann Oldham, a true friend have tried to be
With everyone I meet and everyone I see.
All these years I've shared with you,
I trust you like me as I like you. ,

In the spring of 1951 graduation and old age claimed a total of four
basketball players of the Almo Warrior's starting five. Prospects for the
fall of 1951-52 were gloomy indeed. Sonny Lockhart was the only Warrior
to be back in school who really had varsity experience. Little Dee Farris
had played some first string ball, but very little. Coach Miller has worked
with three more boys that have the ability and determination and has
come up with a winning five. James Neale, running at forward With
Sonny Lockhart has played good ball as has Jackie Burkeen, a very fine
rebounder who is filling the other guard spot opposite little Debo. The
center position has been left up to Sonny's little brother, Bobby Lockhart,
who has filled it very efficiently. Bob stands an even 6' 2". The Warriors
have been given some fine substituting by Max Lovett and Red Connor.
There are three Sophomores on our squad which should play some good
ball in the future. They are Dan Cain and Graves Morris, forwardsg and
Marvin McDaniel, guard. Our record now stands at 14 won-8 lost.
