"... all mankind is of one author, and is of one volume. When one man dies, one chapter is not tom out of the book, but is translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated ... No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main . . . Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee ..."
Meditation John DonneTO HONOR A LIFE OF
" I am a part of all I have met . . .
How dull it is to pause, to make an end,
To rest unburnished, not to shine in use
As though to breathe were life! Life piled on life
Were all too little . . .
A bringer of new things; and vile it were
For some three suns to store and hoard myself,
And this gray spirit yearning in desire
To follow knowledge like a shining star
Beyond the utmost bound of human thought ...
. . . but something ere the end,
Some work of noble note, may yet be done . . .
. . • that which we are, we are -One equal temper of heroic heart . . .
But strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
The death of our superintendent of eighteen years, Mr. Ed Hayman, occurred the night of March 14 as we were preparing for spring holidays and MEA. That day at noon he had been in the cafeteria talking and joking with various students and in the lounge after school chatting with the faculty, seemingly in good spirits and good health. His death left many blank spots that will be hard to fill. A recognized leader in education in Mississippi as well as in the nation, he was serving on the board of directors of the Mississippi Education Association. He was known as the classroom teachers' friend, but above all, the friend of the "youngsters", as he called the students of Mississippi. For them he dreamed the "Impossible Dream": the Middle School - the first in the state and one of the first in the United States - a model for educators all over the nation; the vocational annex at the high school - one of the first and best in this area; the new English phase program - the first in this area; the new open-concept elementary school still in the planning stage at his death. Yes, the "Impossible Dream" was to make Amory Schools the best in the state - and Mr. Hayman made it the "Possible Dream".
Lieutenant-Governor William Winter, Mayor Billy Glasgow, and MEA Executive Secretary Charlie Johnson presented resolutions to the family from the state, the city, and MEA commemorating Mr. Hayman for his years of service in a Memorial Cermony at the high school auditorium.

Many times our natural senses tell us that the deaths of two young people so bright and fine are senseless and tragic. But belief in God presents another way of thinking. Although we may not understand, we are assured that all things work together for the good of them that love the Lord ...

Reach out and touch the hand of someone,
Someone who's lost his way;
Helping him find a new direction,
Showing him how to pray.
Reach out and touch your neighbor,
Even in little things;
Showing him interest in his successes,
Helping him with his needs.
Reach out your hand to those who hate you,
Letting them see you love;
Walking that extra mile with someone.
Reach Out - Reach Out - Reach Out -Reach Out Your Hand of Love.

Students Celebrate Homecoming
Amory High School Homecoming activities for 1973-74 began with a reception for the alumni which was held in the home economics dining room from one o’clock until the homecoming program began. Mrs. Ruth Griffith received the visiting alumni while senior Melody Dryden and sophomore Beth Crook served them.
A group of AHS students presented a homecoming program, beginning at 2:00 Oct. 19. This program consisted of life at AHS from ‘twenties through the ‘seventies.
The ‘twenties started everything off. Five of AHS’s girls were standing on the stage with . their backs to the audience, but when the music started, they turned around and did a lively step called the “Charleston,” These girls were Bobi Duncan, better known as “Bean”, Joan Golden, Christy Candle, Mary Beth Langford, and Lisa Wygul.
The ‘thirties were up next. As the scene opens, a classroom of students are waiting for the announcement to report to the auditorium for the proclaiming of the Homecoming Queen. The next scene is the “lovely” court awaiting the announcement. The reigning queen, Debbie Hicks, made her farewell speech as Homecoming Queen of 1932. Then came the announcement of queen, Mabel Reinzburger. Bonnie Parker (Amy Sullins) yelled for Clyde (Tony Mc-Clarty). Clyde, running on stage, pulled out his machine gun ready to shoot the maids, but it was jammed. As Bonnie grabbed the gun, ready to shoot the queen, the maids pulled out their guns and shot Bonnie. Clyde walked off with the new queen of 1933 as the curtain closed.
The forties was a pep rally in the auditorium. The cheerleaders did a few cheers then Al Riggins, the big football hero, broken leg and all, stood up and gave a speech to the other players. After the speech, the red carpet was rolled out for the Homecoming Queen of 1942, Miss Jeffie Lou Robinson. The skit ended with “Two Bits . Everyone stood up and yelled even the ones back stage.
On came the ‘fifties. Elvis, as played by Tony McClarty, and the dance known as the “Bop”. Some of the couples there to enjoy the dance and the music were Dixie Jones, (boy), and Christy Candle; Laurie Randle and Bo Miller; Bobi Duncan and Edward Thornton; Bernard Lloyd and Kathy Jones.
The “Swinging Sixties” consisted of a “Sonny and Cher in Town” skit. Sonny (Bernard Lloyd) and Cher (Brenda Chism) walked on stage with •The Beat Goes On” while the teenagers sat behind them clapping and yelling. As the curtains closed, a riot began Jamie Haskell, one of the cops, was trying to talk to the teenagers while Clay Simmons, the other cop, was trying to pick a fight. Finally, Jamie said something wrong, and he and Clay went to the floor with the teenagers on top.
The conclusion of the Sixties had all the teenage girls sitting in front of the stage on the floor. The spotlight was put on Brent Jones, the announcer, as he introduced the fantastic group called “The Beatles.” All the girls went wild, and the cops were having a hard time keeping the girls off stage. When they got to the end of the song and went “(XXX)...”, they just gave up and let the
girls get on stage. They grabbed the Beatles and began picking them up, carrying them off. The Beatles were played by Charles Moreland, Barry Jones, Greg Maples, and Lynn Loden.
Finally came the Seventies, the climax of the show. As Brent Jones introduced the eight lovely girls, the tension grew. The Queen of 1972-73, Miss Bobbette Hollingsworth, made the announcement of the queen. The 1973-74 Homecoming Queen was Miss Janie Conwill. After this, the cheerleaders held a short pep rally.
The Amory High School Band headed the line up in what has been said to be the biggest and best homecoming parade ever. Besides the usual class floats and maids, nine decorated cars and trucks were entered by various school clubs and organizations, including FFA, Thespians, French Club, Panorama, Jun ior Y-Teens, FBLA, Spanish Club, Deca, and National Honor Society.
Following immediately behind the band were the freshmen float and the freshman maid. “Bury the Jackets” was the theme for this float, which came in 4th place in the class competition. Guy Lathan drove the car for freshman maid Jean Lee Whitfield and escort Roosevelt Louis.
First place went to the sophomore class for its float with the theme, “Panther’s No-Pest Strip.” Sophomore maid Terri Wax followed the prize-winning Hoat attended by her driver, Ronnie Hall, and escort Cayce Harrison.
The Amory Middle School Band, making its first public appearance in parade, led exceptionally well the junior class float and maid. The class of “75” chose as its float
theme “Zip the Jackets” which received second place. Sandy Hathcote, chosen by her class to serve junior maid, and her escort, Mike Ward, were driven by Ray Murphry.
Senior maid Martha Bour-land driven by Paul Parish and escort Greg Jones, led the senior line up. Following were maid Pat Evans and escort Dwight Smith, driven by Fletcher Bailey; maid Linda Hampton and escort Marty Polk driven by Mike Young; and maid Vicki Hollingsworth, attended by her escort Greg Maples and driven by Milton Jones.
The senior class chose to decorate the famous “green bomb” as its float, using the title, “Bomb Starkville,” and was awarded third place. Oh well, who else But?!
Last, but certainly not least, newly elected 1973-74 Homecoming Queen, Janie Conwill made her first public appearance, attended by her driver Joe Raper and escort Barry Wax. Serving as crown bearer was Andy Stevens, while Tracy Lyons attended the queen as flower girl.
Preceeding the game Friday night between the Amory Panthers and the Starkville Yellow jackets, the AHS homecoming court for 1973-74 was presented on the field as the Panthers band played. Following her court, Miss Janie Conwill, homecoming queen, escorted by Barry Wax, was attended by her crown bearer and flower girl, Andy Stevens and Tracy Lyons. John Creek-more, president of the senior class, presented Janie with a dozen yellow roses, and Brent Jones, president of the student council, crowned her queen and presented her with the traditional kiss. After the Alma Mater, the court preceded to the sidelines to watch the football game.AHS reaches out through . ..

Panther Band acclaimed superior
BY BONNIE PARIIAM
"It s what's up front that counts ’, a phrase popularized several years ago by the Madison Avenue advertising geniuses, was borrowed recently by a judge at the State Band Festival in Jackson to comment on the Amory High School Panther Band
"I congratulate all of you on a job well done.” wrote Dean Dowdy of Madisonville. Ky. “Especially do I recognize
the director; for really, ‘It’s whatz up front that counts’. You students, the school and community, I am sure, are aware of the leadership you have here. Congrats! A fine one to go home on!’’
The 88-member Amory High School Panther Band, under the direction of Ernest Cadden Jr., received superior ratings in all categories of competition at the festival-concert, sight reading, marching, and inspection. In addition. Pat Patterson received superior in drum major and student conductor
“Obviously a creative tea cher at work.” wrote |)r David McCormick of Soutliens tern 1 Louisiana College. Ham mond. I i . who was also a judge. "I Iio|k the community is aware of the high level ot teaching real find teaching An interesting hand ”
Dr. James Wilcox, also
from Southeastern Louisiana College, wrote of the local band and director, “Splendid in all respects Good showmanship. good arrangements, excellent capabilities humor and competence combined. A superb show Congrat ulations to a great group of young people and director ”
“The band plays carefully and musically,” wrote Wilbur Hinton of Auburn University, judge for the sight reading
competition. “Director Knows a good job of briefing the band The band is neat and attentive.”
Walter Brazeniok of Southeastern Louisiana College, commented on the appearance of the group: “A fine,
well groomed group. Discipline and orderliness is outstanding ”
“Needless to say. I’m plenty proud of my kids,” said Mr. Cadden. “They deserve all the applause they received and more They’re a fine group of youngsters."
This was the first time in 18 years that the Amory Panther Band has received superior ratings in all categories of the state competition and it's pretty apparent that Mr. Dowdy’s comment on “what’s up front” is ap - opriate.
In 1970, when Mr. Cadden returned to his home town to take over as director of the Panther Band, he had 29 members in the group the first
year Undaunted because oi the size of his little band. Mr. Cadden took the group to Jackson where they received one rating of excellent, one of good, and two fair.
The next year he had 68 members and entered the group in the Tupelo Fair Parade and the Tupelo Marching Contest where they rated superior. They’ve come home with the same rating since.
“Three things have contributed to the tremendous improvement in the band during recent years,” said Mr. Cadden “We’ve had wonderful supjMiit from the administration and the school hoard and a great deal of cooperation and interest from band pa rents and the general community One of the major reasons tor the solid progress we’ve bail, however, is due to Bob Taylor, who has been responsible lor the rejuvenation in the Middle School hand ”
Mr Taylor is Middle School band director and also director ot the High School stage bands
Mr. Cadden refuses to accept the credit due him for the exceptional progress of the Panther Band However, lie is one of the most outstanding school band directors in the state and is rccogliizcd state wide and nationally
Son of Mr. anil Mrs Ernest Cadden Sr . Mr. Cadden liooame interested in miisie while a small child, according lo his mother.
“lie was about II years old when he received Ins first musical instrument.” Mrs Cadden related “Someone gave the pi« ce to him anil he look il to Richard Hollis for help putting it together. He Ihoughl it was a clarinet, hut when they got it assembled it was a flute. He returned the flute and Inter we brought him the clarinet he wanted ”
In Ihe sixth grade, he began studying music and entered bis first band contest that year Throughout high school lie continued to excel in his music
Following his graduation in I9f»2. hi entered Ihe University ol Mississippi and played first chair clarinet for throe years. Ihs senior year he was assistant band director. In |9f»6 lie received tbe B A Degree in Music Education and lx came director of the ;l .eland High School Band that

He is a member of the National Band Association, past president of Northwestern Mississippi Band Association and the Northeast Mississippi Band Association, and has served as clinician and adjud uator in Mississippi. Tennessee. and Arkansas. Mr. ('ad-den is a member of Phi Beta Mu. national music educators fraternity, serving as state president m 1906. and is a member ol First ('hair of America.
The Amorian received the recognition he deserved when he was awarded the Order of the Silver Horn in 1968. The presentation is in “recognition of the accomplishments of the things for which the award stands: The highest Standards of musicianship, high moral character; ability to work.with his colleagues in the development of Ins profession; self-discipline and this taught to Ins students; outstanding trails ot character, integrity, mdiistrioUMiess, humility, jus lice, kindness, loyalty, efficiency. olK-dicnce to authority, |M rsevcrance. pride, dignity. and a sense of humor; inspiration to his students; his first interest, outside of his family is i.» lx a good teacher.”
