T. H. S. Our minds wander back to the time when there appeared a stir on each street, and immediately small figures were seen to emerge from every home. The cause of all the commotion was the beginning of another year of high school. On that morning we began our four short years. After timidly answering the roll call, we were considered a part of the student body. We survived all of the kidding of being "Greenies" and organized our class. We chose as our class officers, Bill Bryner, president, Iames Pound, vice-president, Marilou Binegar, secretary-treasurer. As freshman we were also well represented on the Honor Roll as well as on the athletic field. After what seemed to be a very short time, there appeared again the very same scene, but this time we were a little more self-confident. Then we were Sophomores. This year we took part in more school activities and we still retained our high places on the Honor Roll. We dreamed of the games and how we would sit on the edge of our seats and cheer until we were hoarse. We had several boys taking an active part in athletics. Our capably chosen officers were: Todd Sheldon, president, Clyde Logan, vice-presidentg Wilma Harden, secretary and treasurer. ln the Iunior year the class presented a three-act play entitled "Aunt Tillie Goes To Town". The excitement and nervousness was so great that we felt surely the play would be a failure but it was really a wonderful success. Our officers were: Paul Smith, presidentg Clyde Logan, vice-presidentg Mary Willoughby, secretary, and Todd Sheldon, treasurer. As our daydreams continue, we recall the Iunior and Senior Banquets, which were the most memorable moments of the days at A. T. H S The time soon carne when we took our places as Seniors, which incident- ally we had secretly envied before. Then we began to wish we were back starting to re-live our four years spent in A. T. H. S. We chose for our class officers: Iames Pound, presidentg Harold Anderson, vice-presidentg Lois DeWitt, secretary, and Gerald Anderson, treasurer. Our class play turned out to be as great a success as our junior play. As we face commencement we find two emotions struggling for suprem- acy. We take pride in having successfully passed the milestone of accom- plishment and sincerely regret leaving our friends of the faculty and underclassmen. ' 13 WILL 5- TESTAIVIE T ..

T. H. S. All my classmates came, dressed in their best. 'Twas alumni night, and again once more We gathered together as in days of yore. Each told of his fate since leaving our School, Interesting things had happened from '45-'52, For four more years since eventful '45 Some had kept our honor-record alive. Norma lean and Edna continued their studies you know, Until they changed their names for their H. S. beauxs. Yes, Wilma's well known on the stage Aubum hair and those brown eyes quite the rage. Carolyn is a teacher, a cross old maid, Fern is a seamstress and very well paidp LaVerne is a mannequin in a Salon of fame, lean, is its business head, Iones and Iones by name. Stanley ci contract with Disney has signed To voice Donald Duck his purse is well lined. Mary W. is the wife of a Postal clerk Happy and contented with her housework. Leona never married but is happy and gay, She gives dancing lessons the live long day. David Schuetz is a pilot of a transport plane, Yes, his stewardess is Edith Moody by name. Marilou, you know, is a preacher's wife, And lives a pious and devoted life. Melvin is still looking for the girl of his heart, He is anxious to settle down, and to farming start. Gerald and Harold are on a team of All Stars, Professional players known near and far. Gerald hopes the schedule will not interfere With a little blonde who graduates from college this year. Donald has finally found his true love, And goes around cooing like a love sick dove. Paul's married-his wife you can guess, His worries are over, he does confess. Billy Watkins a livestock judge of note, He couldn't make the party but he wrote. Ross Lacey, I'm told, also travels aroundg As Base Drummer with a band of renown. Donna Sue is a Singer famed far and wide. lim runs a jitney bus while he waits for his bride. 'Tis rumored some day they'll settle down On a profitable farm south of town. Clyde is a florist, his orchids divine, For those who get them he has quite a line, Harold helps him and does very well, I hear they always have fresh flowers to sell, Sara Lou is cz nurse now, you know And Frances set up a Beauty shop a year ago. Ralph is an agent selling Athletic supplies, He knows his line, but still never lies. Bill Bryner is a druggist efficient and polite, He will fill your prescription day or night. Lois is a lawyer's wife, calm and serene And a happier woman never was seen. Now before my fate was revealed I awoke, I was with you, classmates, 'twas no joke. I'll let you guess what's become of me, And what you think I'm likely to be. -David Wise SOPHO ORE CLASS HISTORY Dear Tom. I guess you thought you'd never hear from me again after you dropped out of school last year, but I just must tell you all about the gang in our sophomore class. They're surely an alright bunch. All of them cooking on the front burner, believe me. Last year, as you probably remember, we had Kenny Artis for president, Lindsey Daugherty for vice-president, and Evelyn Moody for secretary- treasurer. This year we nominated Lindsey "Doc" Daugherty as president, Hoyle Carman as vice-presidentg and Noel Dicks as secretary-treasurer. Our class advisors are the same as last year. They are Miss Diel and Mr. Wise. Do you have any athletics? Say Tom, if our sophomore boys get any bigger and better We'll have every team in the country on the run. Last year there were 30 in our class. That included Noel Dicks who came in during the latter part of the year. This year there are 28 members. There are ll girls and 15 boys. You can see there isn't any man shortage in our class. lim Powell, Leon Hutchings, Iunior South, and Betty Acton have left while Hoyle Carmen has come into our class. Also Ervin Plank left us at the beginning of the second semester of this year. Nearly all of the kids belong to some organization, which includes Home Ec., F. F. A., Dramatic Club, Commercial Club and G. A. A., etc. Remember the play "Mumba-Iumbo"? It was the Dramatic Club play you said you liked so well. I guess the reason you liked it so well was because there were some sophomores in it to help make it a success. Carol Howell and Marianna Ritchey really helped it to go over with a bang. There are several in our class that have been on the honor roll every time. They are Doris Lacy, Marianna Ritchey and Mary Williams. There are a few others that have been on it but not every time. Some of us just don't seem to use what brains we do have. At the beginning of the year our class voted Bettyjane Hansen as candidate for queen. Our float was to carry out the theme "Harvest Moon and the Horn of Plenty". Bettyjane was dressed in a lavender formal and was seated on a large yellow moon with stars hanging around the moon. Last year Ellen Hendrickson was our candidate for queen. I hope I haven't overlooked anything. I'd like to tell you a million other little things about our classg for instance about the swell time we had at our class party out at Ellen's and also about Carol getting second and Marianna getting third at a music contest held in Charleston, and a million other little things that have come up.

But after the Boy's Roundup and Girl's mixer, they became more used to the complicated mechanism that our school is, and set to work to make their next four years as profitable as possible. The class officers that year were Marjorie Ryan, President, K. Helm, Vice-President, and Martin Stock, Secretary- Treasurer. The Dramatics Club presented the play, "A Bargain is a Bargain", and used three members of the Freshman Class in its cast. They were Gene Hoke, Iohn Edgar Hendrickson, and Gene Haney. Margie Qye was the Fresh- man candidate for Homecoming Queen. Our officers were Miss Snow and Miss Wildi. In our Sophomore year, we lost six boys and gained two boys and a girl as class members. Those boys who quit school were: Albert Wilhelm, Wil- liam Dean, Robert Louis, Robert Hendrickson, Donald Shonk, and Iames Foster who is now in the Navy. The boys who entered our class were Wallace Dicks and Keith Rich. The girl was Mary Louise Cox. Our class officers that year were Martin Stock, President, K. Helm, Vice-President, and David Wise, Secretary-Treasurer. Our candidate for Homecoming Queen was Ioan Blaasc. Mr. Glascock and Mr. Monts were our sponsors. This, our junior year, gave us the odds as far as being classmates were concerned. fames Cole quit at the end of his Sophomore year, and William Carman, entered the Marines in December. William and Kenneth Karr entered our class this year, so we came out one to the good. Since this was to be our busy year, we elected a competent group of officers, including Wallace Dicks, Presidentg K. Helm, Vice-President, and Dolores Turner, Secretary-Treasurer. Our Sponsors are Mr. La Fief and Miss Palmer. Our candidate, who was elected Homecoming Queen, Was Marjorie Ryan. Members of our class who Were part of the Homecoming Play, given by the Dramatic Club, were Eugene Hoke, Mary Louise Cox, Phyllis Honn, and Gene Haney. Next came the junior Class Play, "Cross My Heart", the cast of which included Marjorie Ryan, Ichn Edgar Hendrickson, Phyllis Honn, Gene Haney, Bill Carman, Dolores Turner, Eugene Hoke, Fern Davenport, Maudine Duke- man, Mary Ellen Canfield, Kenneth Karr, Ioan Blaase, and Howard Rigg. At Football games this year the class sold cokes and candy. At basket- ball games, we sold cokes and hot dogs. The class may promote other projects later in the year. The Class has always been Well represented in Athletics, Band, G. A. A., F. F. A., Home Economics Club, Commercial Club, and Dramatics Club. All members of our class have enjoyed their high school life thus far immensely, and, though we are Well into the last half of our high school life, We are still looking forward to many enjoyable times at A.

I guess you thought you'd never hear from me again after you dropped out of school last year, but I just must tell you all about the gang in our sophomore class. They're surely an alright bunch. All of them cooking on the front burner, believe me. Last year, as you probably remember, we had Kenny Artis for president, Lindsey Daugherty for vice-president, and Evelyn Moody for secretary- treasurer. This year we nominated Lindsey "Doc" Daugherty as president, Hoyle Carman as vice-president, and Noel Dicks as secretary-treasurer. Our class advisors are the same as last year.

FRE MAN CLASS HI TURY Since we have been in the A. T, H. S. for such a short time, our history is brief. We chose as our class officers Lerae Galbreath, president, Byron Davenport, vice-president, and Iean Daugherty, secretary and treasurer. Lerae Galbreath also was chosen cheerleader. ln our class of "Green" freshmen, as we were called, we had thirty-three students, of which the girls were the greater percent. Cur class advisor was Miss Ochs. Our boys have also taken part in Athletics and we all have participated in the various clubs and school activities. Outstanding on our record is the part we played in the Homecoming program. Cur candidate for queen was LaVon Eads. The float was decorated as a "GI" tent with Pvt. Tuscola, CKeith Phillipsl a wounded patient. LaVon was dressed as a Red Cross Nurse, Believe it or not we won first prize. We have also been well represented on the Honor Roll by Anne Beckman, Paul Fleming, LaVon Eads, Sarah Mast, and Rose Stock. Some of our girls made quite a place for themselves as actresses in the dramatic club play, "Mumba-Iumbo". Rose Stock and Lois Pankey each played leading roles in this play. Rose Stock and Anne Beckman also participated in the Music Contests held this spring. We have high regard for the A. T. H. S. and look forward to spending our last three years here, a place of which we are proud. 20 Anne Beckman Vicann Binegar lean Craig Donald Crist Byron Davenport Edward Davis Cathryn Edwards Paul Fleming Robert Higginson Sarah Mast Margaret Pyle Olin Rigg Iohn Schrock Russell Seitz Wanda Taylor Ella Belle Trower Betty White l fl 4I....4 FRERH- Ianece Blaase lane Craig Eugene Crist lean Daugherty Mildred Donnals I.aVon Eads Lerae Galhreath Robert Harden Lois Pankey Keith Phillips Mariorie Rich Robert Russell Iames Shull Rose Stock Lee Upstone Alberta Watson lass cDl:l:lCE'l'S lean Dcxuglierty Secre tary-Treosurerg Byron Dov enport, Vicefpresident Lerae Galbrealh Pre-si l dent, Miss Oclls, AdVliOT C I POPUL RITY Best Student Howard Riga Best Dressed Girl Rose Stock Best Boy Athlete Gerald Anderson Wittiest Boy Stanley Martin Best Girl Athlete Ioan Blaase CO TEST Best Looking Boy Wallace Dicks Best Dressed Boy K.

The first of the important events was the parade. For several days, students had been busy putting llast minute touches" on their floats. Each cherished a hope that his float would bring the five dollar prize. The freshman had a "Red Cross Hospital" theme which received the first prize. The sophomores used "Shine on, Harvest Moonng the juniors, 'South Sea lslands", and the seniors "The Southern Belief Each float showed that much work and careful planning had been done After the parade, we gathered along the sidelines to watch the Tuscola Warriors and the Arthur Knights play an exciting game. The Knights put up o valiant struggle but were unable to overcome the size advantage of the Warriors. We were scalped l8-l2. The evening s entertainment began with the Homecoming play, "Mumba- lumbou, under the direction of Miss Palmer. This play was a fine production Ben Bradley and his orchestra furnished the music for the dancing which began at 9:30 The main highlight of the evenings entertainment was the coronation ceremony at ll:3O. A call to attention was played by the orches tra and the grand march began. The queen, Marjorie Ryan, was attended by Lois DeWitt, Bettyjane Hansen, and LaVon Eads.

Betty White has been the drum majorette this year and Gene Hoke the librarian. ln addition to the regular concert band there are several ensembles who expect to enter the spring contests. They are as follows: one B Clarinet quartet, one French Horn quartet, one saxophone quartet, and one brass quartet. Gene Haney, William Bryner, Marjorie Ryan, David Wise, Rose Stock, William Oye, and Billy Watkins will also participate in the contests as soloists. The band began its activities this year with a public appearance at the football games. They are to be particularly commended for their part in the Homecoming parade and the field show which was given during the halves of the game. ln addition to school functions they appeared in the Army-Navy "E" program given by the Progress Manufacturing Co. They also led the Hal- loween parade which was given for the public. The Winter concert presented December l7th proved such a success that plans are being made for a spring concert which is an annual affair. Versatility is one of the bands outstanding traits. They have played everything from "super-fine" to "boogie-Woogie", the latter was a pleasant surprise to the basketball fans. Members of the group plan to participate in the Band Clinic with Mt. Zion, Cerro Gordo, Sullivan, and other schools this spring. They will also be entered in the district solo and ensemble contest, April 2lg the section solo and ensemble contest, May 5, and the recital of solos and ensembles on April 8.

A. was to initiate the "Greenhands" or Freshmen boys. This was promptly disposed of with a lot of fun ibut not to the Freshrnenl. The Farm Mechanics class entered a float in the Homecoming parade. It was a float, based on Farm Mechanics, with a forge, anvil, saws, hammers, etc. The annual pest contest started about the first of October, and lasted until the end of the school year. The Winning side was treated by the losing side. There were many detrimental pests disposed of in the contest. The annual Father-Son banquet was held in the old gymnasium this spring. The food was prepared and served by the Home EC. girls, and the program consisted of several speeches. Last year the boys partook in the Fourth War Loan driveg consequently this year they were asked to help in the Sixth War Loan drive. They received many pledges, and were glad to be of any assistance in winning the War. The F. F. A., as you can see, is one of the busiest and most helpful organizations in school. After the War, the Future Farmers of America will become the Farmers of America! 30 HGME EC CLUB Front How. lah to right: Lois Pankey, Marilou Binegar, Donna Sue Howell, Fern Arrncur, Mary Willough- by, Ioan Blaase, Sara Lou Ashley, Edith Moody, Marjorie Rich Second Row: Cathryn Edwards, Wanda Taylor, Mary Williams, Doris Lacy, lane Craig, Mary Ellen Canfield, Alberta Watson, lean Craig, Ellen Hendrickson, Miss Ochs Third How: Margie Oye, Maudine Dukeman, Ella Belle Trower, lean Daugherty, Phyllis VonLanken, Lois DeWitt, lean Iones, Mary L.

The plot of the play is very clever. Two young problem children decide to show up their parents. Both being stubborn, self-conscious and sensitive, they borrow their brother and sister's evening clothes and start out on a one-night jaunt. The parents, much surprised at the way the two are acting, become very worried and call the police. When they hear of a young couple robbing a bank, knocking out a filling station attendant and tearing a fender from a car, they are more Worried than ever. When some neighbor kids come in telling about seeing the two at the corner drug store buying cakes and dancing, everybody is relieved. The two fall in love, "Now", says Dave Adams, "we have got something to worry about". THE CAST Eleanor Ross ,... Bob Adams .... Dave Adams .... Bess Adams ..... Pauline Adams.. lerome Ross .....

Handolph, William Carman, Mgr. Canfield Gerald Anderson-Left half back, is a Senior. He has played 4 years and served as acting captain. He and Harold, we hope, will be rough with the Navy's enemies. Harold Anderson-Quarterback, shared honors with his brother on the field. His 153 pounds presented a formidable barrier. K. Helm--Right end, is a Iunior. He is light and wiry, has been a letterman for two years. Wallace Dicks-A junior, has been here for two years. He used his 145 pounds to good ad- vantage at right halfback position. Gordon Galbreath-Full back, served as cap- tain at the Homecoming and crowned the Queen. His weight is about 142 pounds. He is a funior and will be on the team again if Uncle Sam doesn't get him. Iames Pound-A tall and lanky center, is a Senior. He has been a letterman for two years. Edgar Hendrickson-A short, muscular 140 pounder is a lunior and plays right guard. He's dynamitel Charles Trower-A sophomore, shows promise of being a damaging right guard through the next two years. Trower tips the scales at 132. David Schuetz-Tackle and end, played his last year for Arthur. He executed some fine tackles this season and we wish for him "good tack- ling" with Uncle Sam. His weight is 138. Martin Stock-Right end, is a lunior. He used his 162 pounds ftop weight for the teaml to play good, steady ball against our opponents. Billy Watkins-Developed a fine set of muscles on the farm and drove his 138 pounds into some spectacular tackles. Bill is a Senior. Clyde Logan-One of the lightest men of the team, was by no means the easiest to handle. Clyde is a Senior and has been playing for Arthur three years. Melvin Iurgens-Left guard, is a transfer stu- dent. He played outstanding games with the team. He Weighs 158. Donald Borders-A fiery, tough 148 pound left tackle. When he hit his opponents really felt it. Borders, a funior, will be valuable next year. Iames Hendrickson-Lineman, is a sophomore. His seasons performance was admirable and his future on the team bright. Ralph Seaman-Also a lineman with Hendrick- son, weighs about 150. He also is a sopho- more and will be valuable his next two years. FGOTBALL Front Row. lah to right: K.
