tmmeduately Bully Adaur and Edgar McClaun benng among the farst to leave Marruage

Bobby Merrull Freddle Watson and Sara Goodson headed the student government
this year and had the sltuatlon well an hand
gotten better offncers than Homer Hurd as Presndent and Ruchard Davnes and Grace

Back through the years we remember the swell fumes we nad at the Muslc
Festrvals football games when Suster was head cheerleader and Arnold Polly and
Ruchard followed the HIY conferences especnally the one held here and those
hayrldes and sock dances
We have a 'ob ahead of Us The future of Amersca and the world lS resttng

Remember way back wher hrustsne Jo Margaret and Shurley wore theur hour
parted un the muddle combed down straught on the sude to fluffy curls at the ends
and when freckles were outstandung features of the boys? lt seems luke quute some
tume ago but ut was only V739 the year thus class entered uts freshman year of
Confused and rather amu ed we were tryung to decude whether we should feel
superuor ar lust small fry when the upperclassmen took a hand and subuected us to
tortures of lupstucked faces and the transportung of trays un the lunchroom
Bucklung down to the busunes of becomung accustomed to new teachers and our
furst tastes of algebra and scuence we skummed through our furst year of hugh school
wuth very few casualtues As a remembrance of that year Muss Sapps sessuon room
offered the Tuger Tumes some competutuon by publushung the Bulletun We remember
that Ruth Warluck was elected the mast studuous gurl un that class and Mr Turneys
class bestowed the male form of that honor upon Stewart Bushop A great thrull for
the enture class was when Paulune Carter was tapped for membershup un the Tru Hu Y
A number of the gurls and boy lufted theur vouces un song over the fact that they were
selected for the Glee Club
We came back our ophomore year to fund that Muss Paulune Massey had replaced
Muss Sapp who had taken on the Holy Bonds of Motrumony She helped us over the
rough pots and we receuved a few pounters on the fuue art of typung durung the new
unstututuon called the actuvuty peruod After school candy sales produced money for
Muss Gubsons sessuon room to send to the Deaf and Blur'd School un Talladega for
Chrustmas and then at Easter they furnushed new dresses for two luttle gorls there
At Chr stmas they held theur furst arnual banquet Turney s class was duvuded between
Muss Massey s and Muss Gab on s Bobby and Morgue were seen enuoyung each other s
company more frequently ana Ruchards Mulluon Dollar Smule was always on dusplay
We found that among us was some rare charm when Mu s Gubsons sessuon roonn
sponsored Muldred Wesson and Nora Lee Colerudge represented Muss Massey's room
un a papularuty contest As wunners they reugned as Queen and Lady un Wautung at the
Stunt Nught Incudentally the stunt performed by the combuned sessuon rooms took
furst pruze and ut's no wonder as Gene Gwun portrayed Saunt Peter The pruze money
bought books for the lubrary By thus tume we were well represented un most of the
clubs and had hugh hopes for 'he harmonuca chorus un Muss Gubson's room, conducted
by Mrs Merrull
As Junuors we certaunly felt our umportance Why we had reached Mr Dovus' solud
geometry class and had learned to leave off the handle when speakung of Turney
outsude of Phystcs We turned to a more seruous ude as we lustened to the Presudent's
