CLASS HI TORY The History of the class of 1952 is so colorful and dramatic that it resembles a play. We shall call this play "The Class of '52. " This play has three acts. All the scenes take place in Childersburg School. Act One begins when one little girl and three little boys enter the large school building holding "Mommy's" hand. Although they are shy and afraid they soon make many friends and settle down to the job of learning. These little people, Mary Frances Cliett, Jimmy McGhee, James Richa and Pete Limbaugh, little realize the fun and hardships that they will have before the play is finished. Act Two opens as the little actors, who have grown large and who have been joined by Medie Jo Wallis, Sara Vawter, Jane Golden, Lois Vincent, Jo Ann Waldrip, Bonnie Russell, June Ward, Patsy Fleck, Joyce Burnett, Kathryn York, Barbara Browning, Louise Jones, David Bassett, Charles Dillard, J. W. Branson, Billy Billingsley, Joseph Hubbard, Billy Barnett and A. D. Shaw, during the last five years, enter Jr. Hi school. As act two progresses new actors, Shirley Joiner, Bettye Butts, Ellen Sanders, Janice Riley, and Ronald Shoemaker, Don Bacon, Morris Owings and Charles Parker, join the play and soon they find themselves enjoying Hi school in Childersburg more and more. At last, Act Three arrives. The actors waited long and patiently for the day when they would enter Sr. Hi School. The tenth grade is not much different from the ninth, except that the students feel a little more important. Then comes their Jr. year. Again newcomers join the play. They are Joan Meyers, Bobbie Springer, June Rutherford, and David Macomish. The Jr. 's work hard planning and preparing a banquet in honor of the Seniors. At last, they themselves become Seniors. New actors again join the play. These are Inez Gore, Louise Cox, Joyce Giddens, and Bill Moynihan. This play started with four actors and as it progressed many joined while a few dropped out for various reasons. The actors are very busy during their last year. Most of them are im- portant members of the various school clubs. Five of the boys receive football letters, some are members of the band, Kathryn York gets second place in the Talladega County Turkey Frestival, Jane Golden and David Bassett are elected Harvest King and Queen of the school, and Mary Frances Cliett is elected Good Citizenship girl. The Class publishes the school paper, "The Tiger's Roar," and the annual, "The Treasure Chest." They attend the Jr. 8: Sr. banquet, stage the Senior play and go on the Senior Trip. At the Climax of this play, the curtain is rung down on the thirty-nine successful actors, each is holding a Childersburg High School diploma in his hand signifying twelve hard, but glorious years. 1 7 .-a1-11-.-uug-..a11w4-v:sn1u-s- . .gvnsuuvvnuussvn :snr I . .
