With that in mind the theme "Confucius Say" seemed to be appropriate. The ancient teacher, an inquiring thinker and a Sage of China, has inspired many persons with his comments on the conduct of man toward himself and society. His aim was to show "how to get through this lite like courteous gentle- men." The Oriental motif has given our artists an opportunity to correlate their work with this produc- tion. We hope that our book exemplifies a well- known maxim of Confucius: "In style all that is required is that it convey the meaning." gi'lfTf 'lv 1? Gr ff' iff To those who have held high the torch of security, health, and assistance, guided us through our many trials and tribulations, loved us and reioiced with us Through infancy, adolescence into young man- hood and womanhood, we, the Senior Class of 1950, humbly dedicate this issue of our yearbook to OUR PARENTS.

Having been smeared with lipstick by some of the upperclassmen, we were prepared for the misery of rushing to and from classes. Yes, we found our work hard, but before We realized it the time had come for the summer vacation. As the semesters came and went, our number diminished, the few remaining ones, with the help of reinforcements from other classes, continued the pursuit until, at last, we captured the glorious name of Seniors. We have much to acclaim, for our class has four members in the National Honor Society, seven in the Tri-Hi-Y, four in the A Club, five in the Sport Club, one in the Hi-Y, nine in the "B" Club, three inthe "Y" Teens, and four in the National Thespian Society. One of the members of our class received a special honor, Jo Ann Huff was chosen to represent Bessemer High School on the Laurie Battle Tour. Upon leaving high school some of us will get married and others will enter college. Though we may be separated, in our hearts the memory of our classmates, teachers, and friends will live forever. We shall always think of B. H. S. as the place where the most important chapters in our lives were acted.

While waiting in her little reception room, I became interested in a large crystal ball resting on a table directly in front of me. I was gazing intently into this mystic globe when suddenly I observed small black spots appearing here and there on its surface. These began to take the faces of people whom I recognized as my dearest friends, members of the class of '50, Each passed before me, led by our class president, John Fowler, as the speaker of the House of Representatives. He proved to be an orator of unusual ability, and his efficient secretary was Lohner Frances Faulkner. In Gleason's night club I saw our class musician, Carreme Boackle. She was playing a duet with Oscar Levant, accompanied by Anthony Arnone and his orchestra. In an obscure corner I observed Milton Ward with his wine, women, and song. Upon leaving, everyone obtained his hat from the hat check girl, Pat Ford. Next appeared the world-famous King's University. Inside a faculty meeting was being held. Those taking part in the discussions were the following: Bobbie Wilson, head librarian, who was assisted by Eulala Sellers, Francis Johnston, history teacher, Billy Wilbanks, drafting teacher, Helen Sanders and Gloria Patterson, heads of the home economics department, and the last were the head coaches, Bill Kilpatrick, Alfred Jordan, and Charles Wilson. As I departed, I met the track stars of the University- T. J. Smitherman-Jr., 'Joe Robertson, and Gerald Autry. As my friends passed before me, I found that Thomas Black, a famous architect, had designed a skyscraper which was owned by Jerry McBride. In the distance was Edward Stapp's beautiful colonial mansion. At the door was Johnny Boyd, who was delivering dry cleaning for his establishment. A The next to appear on the list of success was Gene Kachelhofer, a prosperous business man who was having his car serviced at a well known garage, which was operated by James Hall. A tea was being given in honor of Patsy Costa, whose engagement had been announced. Friends who attended were Marie Garrett, the famous model, and her exclusive wardrobe designer, Ann Lewis. Also attending were Maurene McDonald, owner of the largest horse ranch in the United States, and Milton Gray, a million dollar playboy. There came into view a number of married couples-Jo Ann and Noel, Anita and Gardner, Nancy and Jimmy. All were living happily. Polly had succeeded in making her one certain person happy. The spots began to fade when suddenly a large body of water appeared. Believe it or not, Joann Wood was dying in the Dead Sea. At this moment I was aroused from my reverie by the crystal gazer who was saying, "Are you ready to have your future read?" "Yes," I answered faintly.

That thoughts of departure bring a tear And to our principal we add this line We hate to say we're leaving you Because one so dear is hard to find. Although we know its really true. So here's to you old B. H. S. We've laughed and ioked that we'd be glad The best of schools we've entered yet. But in our hearts we're only sad. And to the students still under her rule We've had our tears and smiles and fun Take care of her, we love our school. And we'll always cherish every one.

Some students were excited, some frightened and the others plain bored. We were divided among four teachers, Miss Dana Prickett, Miss Eleanor Davis, Mr. W. M. Crowder and Mr. G. S. Turney. These teachers helped us in making our schedules and getting to classes on time. The first year was very eventful. Miss Davis' session room was changed to Miss Riley and we had another capable teacher to guide us through our school life. When the girl's clubs tapped, the Tri Hi Y got five girls, the Sport Club got four girls, and the A Club two girls. The summer vacation came and everyone enioyed it. The next year was the year the Hi Y tapped and this boys' club took in thirteen boys during these two semesters. After enduring the hardships of initiation, the pledges lived to become full fledged members. This year four girls were tapped into the Sport Club, two into the Tri Hi Y, and four into the A Club. This year Mr. Batchelor become our Biology teacher and took over Mr. Crowder's session room. The National Thespians were organized this year and ten members of our class were charter members. The Junior year was marked by the leaving of Mr. Batchelor and the coming of Mr. Horace Peter- son. Mr, Peterson took over the Biology department and Mr. Batchelor's session room. The girls kept dominating the social clubs, as six were tapped into the Tri Hi Y and two into the A Club. The boys placed four more in the Hi Y. Also during this year five received the great honor of becoming mem- bers of the National Honor Society. At Christmas time Miss Joye Ogburn was chosen Queen Merry Christmas the Sixth. This young lady ruled over the Christmas Carnival in Bessemer. The Senior year one girl was tapped into the Tri Hi Y, three girls into the Sport Club and one boy into the Hi Y. This gave the seniors a dominating force in all the organizations of Bessemer High School. As a class we have accomplished much, we are known over the whole state. At Christmas time Miss Janice Williams was selected Royal Princess of the Christmas Carnival in Bessemer. The class has dwindled from one hundred nineteen students to eighty-eight. When we look back over our high school career, we feel sad because we must leave high school. But when the last book is closed, the last test finished, and the last light at the last Commencement exercise is turned out, we will take with us a memory of pure happiness that no one or no time can take from us.

H. S." While walking down the hall, Many memories we recall. We even remember That day in September When leaves were on the ground- This group of us were high school bound. We were facing many snares, But we've received our shares, Of ioy, sadness, and of fears- And have shed many tears. -When we'd tailed after trying, lt was time to be a'crying. Now that we have succeeded With diplomas we'll be greeted. Soon we'll be leaving you, And it will make us blue. Now we classmates all must port, But all these memories we'll hold in our heart. Melba Ingram Class Poet Marilyn Janice Williams "Widgie" "To be featured in a 'Boys' Life'."

Robert Cleve Williams "Bo Pete" "Observe, investigate, experiment." .-un: PIRIIPIIIIIJY llll li. ll. . CLASS till ' ll The other night I had a most extraordinary dream. I dreamed that I visited the laboratories of the Southern Research Institute in the year of l96l. Entering a room which housed scientific exhibits, I saw three young scientists demonstrating a new atomic radar machine. As I neared the three men, I recognized them to be Joe Clayton, Larry Brown, and Billy Collier. After talking with them for several minutes, we all agreed it would be interesting to use the machine to see what had become of our B. H. S. classmates of i95O. ' After adjusting many knobs and dials, we saw on the screen a picture of the far north. Dudley Reed, a fur animal expert, was tramping over the frozen wastes of Canada. Overhead was flying a transport plane. The pilot was Sonny Dixon and the two co-pilots were Jimmy Smith and Billy Vines. The stewardess on the plane was Alice Jane White. Some of the passengers we recognized were, Betty Moore Jones, a nurse, Elizabeth Williams, an artist, Mary Laura Pugh and Frances Hurbburt, noted authors, and Betty Anderson, a stenographer. Another picture flashed on the screen. Jean Robinson, Allan Eastis, and Bob Kincaid, stars of the Birmingham Professional Basketball team were being interviewed iust after a game. They were de- scribing the pleasures of smoking Camels. The coach of the team was Carl Harris. Some,of the spec- tators we saw leaving were Betty Turner, Bobby Moore, Benton Baker, Clarence Crotwell, and Peggy .O'Neal. As the scene shifted, we looked in on a party being given by Congresswoman Elizabeth Lowry. Robert Parson, Billy Patton, Lewis Ruffner and Oliver Coggins were standing about the punch bowl dis- cussing politics. Edwyna Morrow was telling Jo Anne Jones, Mary Etta Stephenson and Mary Roy about her last trip to France. Stephen Furst was entertaining some of the guests by playing the piano. James Perryman, a judge, Billy Snow, a criminal lawyer, and "Red" Albright, the district attorney, were discuss- ing a court case. Again the scene changed and we saw Bettye Rae Crane presiding over the National P.-T. A. Con- vention in Philadelphia. Among those that we recognized at the meeting were Louise Welch, a lib- rarian, Betty Adams, a renowned chemistry teacher, Nellie Seals, a teacher of Home Economics, Ruth Simmons, an outstanding history teacher, and Melba Ingram, a teacher of commercial subiects. We then tuned the radar to see a television show on N. B. C. John Lathram and Wilbur Buck were a comedy team similar to Martin and Lewis. Their act was extremely humorous. The next act was a vocal trio composed of Lila Walclrop, Betty Anderson, and Janice Williams. A quiz program was next presented. Bobby Fowler was the master of ceremonies, Dot Pickett, Joye Ogburn, Katherine Burgess, Joy Farr and Peggy O'Neal were participating on the program. When I awoke the next morning I could not remember any of my dream. I tried to remember, but I soon realized it was hopeless. I knew I would never get another idea for the prophecy, so I gave up. I guess the senior class will have to do without a prophecy this year. JOHN ROBERT GOODSON Prophet LATWILL A li TE 'llillllll 'l' We, the members of the Senior Class of Bessemer High School, being of sound bodies and sane minds, do here and now make and declare this our last will and testament. Let it be known that any will, previously penned, we pronounce null and obsolete. As the day of leaving draws near, the sad thought that we may be forgotten presents itself, so we do bequeath to those we love our meager belongings. l.

HEAD CHEERLEADER: Betty .leon Turner. ,,,.-- L X , ow unflinching is his strength Fllll'I'llALL The football season of 1949 saw only seven lettermen returning from the 1948 squad. From this nucleus a formidable football power was scan to be in the offing, a team which played a back-breaking schedule and come out on the long end of a 6-3 won-and-lost record. BESSEMER vs. PHILLIPS Phillips was the first foe of the Bessemer Tigers of '49, After a hotly contested battle, the Tigers were forced to bow to the Red Raiders 15-6. BESSEMER vs. ANNISTON Smarting from defeat and hungry for a break into the "Win Column," the Tigers defeated a Highly taunted Anniston eleven the following week 14 to O. Pre-season prognosticators had already been fitting the State Champion Crown to the head of the Anniston Bulldog. The-will-to-win and fighting team spirit enabled the Tigers to attain the surprise victory. ' BESSEMER vs. Jones VALLEY The following Friday night brought the Jones Valley Brownies to town. The result was, as many of the dopesters had predicted, a four touchdown victory for the Tigers. ln this game the Tigers showed considerable offensive strength and furnished an opportunity for every man in uniform to play. Final score 28-O. ' BESSEMER vs. WEST END The next two weeks were long ones. They were spent mainly in preparation for a fast, tricky, and scrapy West End eleven who -was undefeated thus far. No rest was available the week end prior to the West End engagement. During the week preceding the West End battle, feeling, tension and spirit was running high at the Bessemer School. That October 14 will be remembered as a date for the great- est showing of a Bessemer team. Victory for the Tigers was inevitable from the first whistle. The tack- ling, blocking, and running was vicious! Bessemer never behind in the score, led throughout the game. The final score was Bessemer 13-West End 12. This was the only defeat suffered by the Lions during the '49 season. BESSEMER vs. WOODLAWN The following week the Tigers invaded Legion Field to meet the highly regarded Woodlawn Eleven. Bessemer without the services of some of its key players was forced to yield a touchdown in the first five minutes and was never able to muster enough offensive strength to push a tally across. The game ended Woodlawn 7- Bessemer 0. BESSEMER vs. GADSDEN The next week Bessemer iourneyed to Gadsden. Bessemer chose to kick to the Gadsden Tigers. The kick-off ended in a touchdown for Gadsden. Bessemer on the returning kick-off was able to march to the Gadsden li yard line before an interscepted pass staved the threat. Gadsden led at the half- time, 7-6. A fighting Gadsden team held the Bessemer Tigers in check until the waning minutes of the game when Bessemer pushed over it's second and winning touchdown. Final score, Bessemer 12-Gads- den 7. BESSEMER vs. RAMSAY On November 3, the week following the Gadsden victory, the entire city of Bessemer was elated by the victory of the Bessemer Tigers over the Ramsay Rams. This was the first victory for Bessemer over Ramsay in ten years, and for that reason the victory meant more than any other. One of the many handicaps the scrapy Tigers were forced to overcome was a 23 lb. per man weight disadvantage. The Tigers rose to her heights to conquer a constantly aggressive fighting Ramsay team. lt would be impossi- ble to select individual stars in this contest as every Bessemer player was a Tiger in the true sense of the word and possessed a burning desire to win. When the smoke of battle had cleared, Bessemer was content with its 14-13 victory. BESSEMER vs. ENSLEY Then began Tigers preparing for a heavy and aggressive Ensley team. For the second time the Bessemer Tigers were to invade Legion Field and to suffer the second set back in as many starts in the Birmingham arena. At the half time the score was deadlocked O-O. Too much Ensley power proved the downfall of the Bessemer eleven. Final score Ensley l3-- Bessemer 6. BESSEMER vs. HUEYTOWN A keen rivalry which has existed for more years than this writer can recall took place as usual on Thanksgiving morning. Spirit, and feeling, was at an unusually high pitch for this particular contest. Hueytown had iust been crowned Champion of County football circles. Hueytown never really threat- ened to score moving the ball only twice beyond Bessemer's 35 yard line. Both drives were quelled by a surging Bessemer defense. Bessemer scored early in the second period and retained this lead through- out the game to close out its season with a 7-O victory over its ancient rival. 7 1949 TIGERS TOP ROW: Arthur Clark, Myron Vietch, Fronk Christy, Bobby Smithermcun, Charles lngle, Gerald Autry, Billy Bice, Donald Jones, Billy Collier, Joe Autry, Carl Harris, E. G. Taylor, Jimmy Cain.

FRONT ROW: Johnny Adams, Charles Wilson, Jimmy Albright, Jimmy Smith, Glenn Pugh, George McClain, Joe Argo, Bill Kilpatrick, Woody Goodwin, James Dison, Wilbur Buck. Co-Captain Woody Goodwin, Coach "Snitz" Snider, Co-Captain Bill Kilpatrick Woody Goodwin-A senior guard and co-captain was one of the most versatile players on the 1949 team. In l948, Woody was known as one of the best guards in prep circles. At the beginnig of this season, he was placed in various backfield positions giving excellent perform- ances in each before he was placed at his old position of guard. As captain he was. an outstanding leader. Bill Kilpatrick-A senior guard and co-captain of the team. "Fert" was a demon on defense and a vicious blocker opening up holes for the backs to run through. B-ill's rugged, aggressive, and uncanny play anchored a fighting aggressive line which yielded only four T.D.'s in nine ball games. 3rd team All State '49, lst team All County '49. Glenn Pugh-A iunior center. He is a rugged defensive line backer. Glenn was a key man on offense. Every pass from Glenn to the backs was perfect, contributing to a sharp offense? 2nd team All Coun- ty '49. George McClain-A senior back. Although hampered with iniuries much of The year, George will be well remembered in all games up to the Woodlawn game. He was a fleet-footed back who ran with power and determination. 2nd team All County '49. John Fowler-After being con- verted from a back to a lineman, John showed much skill and de- termination in subduing the op- ponent. He was a senior tackle of aggressive variety. Charles Wilson-back. Charlie played his best year for the Tiger eleven. Many will remember the I4-O victory over Anniston. Wilson scored both T. D's. Charlie was also an outstanding tackle and a halt on defending against passes. Wilbur Buck-Tackle. Wilbur is a senior tackle of a rugged variety. Developing from a slow start,-Buck blossomed into one of the most brilliant performers at the year. Jimmy Albright-A senior quar- terback. "Red" could be depended upon to block and tackle and seem- ed to always come up with the best play at the correct time. Jimmy Smith-A senior center. "Smutt" was an extra point spe- cialist. His toe enabled the Tigers to overcome two formidable foes. Smith could be depended upon for rugged line backing or dependable offensive playing. Billy Bice-A iunior end. One of the most vicious tackles on the squad and equally as good catch- ing passes. Bice, although ham- pered with iniuries, caught several passes which enabled his team to defeat the better teams. Oliver Coggins-Guard. Being the smallest man on the team and being forced to spot his opponent a lO-20 lb. weight advantage, his fighting spirit, ability, and determ- ination made him one of the best guards in the state. Billy Collier-Tackle. "Jap" play- ed most of his football at guard. In the early part of the season he was converted to Tackle. This posi- tion exemplified his best qualities and he developed into a very good football player. Carl Harris-Fullback. This pile driving 140 lbs. of dynamite was unequaled in local prep circles in fight and determination. Harris will be sorely missed next year. Gerald Autry-End, a senior. Although hampered with injuries throughout the year, Beaky saw considerable service. Defense was his speciality but he was also a standout on offense. James Dison-A iunior end. James was not too fond of offensive play but possessed a natural love for defense. ln this department he excelled. He was rugged, aggres- sive, and a bulwark in the path of opposing ball carriers. Donald Fisher-A junior end and pass snagger deluxe. Weighing only 155 lbs., Fisher was a demon on defense as well as a good blocker. Great things are expected of him next year.
