HISTORY OF COHN HIGH SCHOOL
Corinne L. Cohn High School had its beginning in l928 when a wing of the
present building was constructed and named to honor the memory of Mrs. Co-
rinne Leiberman Cohn, a beloved former member of the Nashville City Board
of Education. Mr. AI. H. Sikes, a long-time teacher in IfVest Nashville, was named
Immediately Cohn School became a center of community interest. Its lead-
ership in Mr. Sikes, Mr. Brown, and other teachers, working in cooperation
with a wide-awake Parent-Teacher Association and community leaders, brought
the Cohn Junior High School, into the educational forefront of the city. The
growth of the school was so rapid that it soon became overcrowded and badly in
need of new facilities. The people of I'Vest Nashville liked their community
school and dreamed of the day when their children might complete their high
school training in their own school. In l937 a new building program began,
doubling the floor space of Cohn, adding a gymnasium, a large auditorium, new
shops, a new Home Economics department, and many new classrooms. The same
year saw the tenth grade added to the school, with the promise of more grades
being added in future years until a full high school status should be attained.
The school was officially named the Corinne L. Cohn High School.
The gratitude and pride of IfVest Nashville people immediately found expres-
sion in increased school enthusiasm and support. The P.'T. A. enrollment soared
and a new Men's Club of Cohn High School was formed. The fine loyalty,
enthusiasm, and financial support of these organizations gave the school the
undergirding it needed for permanent growth as a community center and as a
leading educational institution. The line vision of the city school administraa
tion, the unfailing love and generosity of Mr. Charles Cohn, and the hne loyalty
of the business interests of Mfest Nashville were indispensable in these early years
of development. By 1939 Cohn High School had a well-rounded four-year course
of study, an excellent library, a Fine band and orchestra, a splendid chorus, full
participation in all interscholastic athletics, a strong school newspaper, an ade-
quate speech department, a Fine faculty of thirty-six teachers, and a building about
to burst with enthusiastic young people. The year l939 saw the retirement of
beloved Mr. -I. H. Sikes, after over fifty years of service to the children of IfVest
Nashville. The school, the alumni, the P.-T. A., and the Men's Club joined
hands and hearts in honoring Mr. Sikes at the largest banquet ever given in Ivest
In l940 Cohn High School had its hrst graduation. There were sixty-three
members in the class. It was a good class - one that had borne responsibility and
had helped set up sound precedents for tradition.
By 1941 Cohn was becoming too crowded. Already the people of YV est Nash-
ville were dreaming of and clamoring for a building program. The Board of
Education was responsive to their needs and soon had blueprints under way for
a greater Cohn High.
Then came the war-the terrible, anxious,
grievous years of conflict. All plans for building
had to be abandoned so materials might be had
for winning the war. Hundreds of Cohn's grad-
uates rose and students went out to defend the
people and ideals they loved. The school rose
to its obligations in selling bonds, making band-
ages for the Red Cross, gathering scrap iron and
waste paper. The Colm Clarion staff furnished
morale to the boys in the Armed Services by
sending the newspaper all over the world.
Twenty-four of our men gave their lives for their
way of life. They have become forever en-
shrined in the character and tradition of their
With the coming of peace came other things:
the joy and relief of welcoming returning loved
ones, the weariness and temptation to lassitudeg
educational needs of returneesg reawakening old
dreams and planning a new future.
It was in 1943 that Cohn's athletic star began
to rise. For over three and a half years Cohn
reigned undefeated in football, going undefeated
three years and retiring the Nashville Banner
football trophy. The completion and lighting
of Sikes Field and the building of the football
held house gave the school the hnest in football
facilities. Fine records in basketball, baseball,
golf, and tennis have given Cohn an enviable
place in the athletic picture in Nashville.
It is characteristic of the people of l'Vest Nash-
ville that their faith in a greater Cohn survived
in the trying years of war and readjustment. As
soon as materials were available, the Men's Club,
the P.-T. A., the teachers, Mr. Cohn- all began
to look forward to the expansion of the school
to meet the growing needs of the community.
Thanks to their efforts and to the understanding
and vision of our Board of Education, ground
was broken for the new wing to Cohn High
School in January, 1949. At this writing most
of the work is completed and new facilities are
being added. Once again the floor space of the
school has been doubled. A new gymnasium
seating 1,400 people, a new library, a new dining
room seating 400, a new band and orchestra
department of fourteen rooms, a new Home
Economics department, a new playroom, a new
science laboratory, an enlarged stage and light-
ing equipment, and twenty-one new classrooms
have been built. The old building has been
rearranged and refinished. A new public ad-
dress system, a new time system, and a new fire
alarm system have been installed. Altogether al-
most a million dollars is being spent to make
Cohn one of the finest school plants in Tennes-
see. As usual, Mr. Cohn added the final touch
by giving the school a beautiful new organ for
The year 1950 has brought Cohn many good
things. It has also brought irreparable loss. Mr.
Xvilliam Hume, chairman of our Board of Edu-
cation, passed away. A greater Cohn was a large
part of Mr. Hume's educational vision for Nash-
ville. His understanding, sympathy, and loyalty
Cohn lost one of her oldest and best friends
at the passing of Mr. Charles Cohn. His devo-
tion to the school was a beautiful thing. During
the years he lavished his affection, his attention,
and his means upon Cohn High School. He was
as modest as he was generous. He asked nothing
but to give. He left us all a nobler thing than
material wealth - he taught us the "giving life."
The year 1949-50 has brought to Cohn a new
adventure in school life. It has brought the
students opportunity to share in the authority
and responsibility of governing themselves. This
is an important opportunity-to learn of de-
mocracy through producing it - to learn thc
price of freedom through responsibility and work
- to learn to respect the will of the majority - to
learn to live together in harmony and mutual
respect. Student government has succeeded at
Cohn. Cohn is growing up.

Red Cross Club, '48.
About six years ago the greater part of what
is now the Senior Class of 1959 entered Cohn to
make this page-HISTORY. And such a his-
tory as it has been! Most of us came from
Cockrill, Sylvan Park, and Park Avenue in Sep-
tember, 1944, feeling big graduates of the sixth
grade. These feelings last only a few days or
possibly hours. "Elevator" tickets, "lunchroom"
tickets, or room numbers belittled us to no great
After a diligent year as seventh graders, we
were passed into the realms of higher education-
the eighth grade. This year as well as the preceed-
ing one was highlighted by the homeroom tourna-
ments. just preceding the tournaments Cohn's
football team had begun its great three-year reign
of the championship throne by winning the
trophy for the first time.
The ninth grade passed with little change in
our regular routine. In june of this year we
received our Junior High School diplomas from
Dr. A. K. Smithson.
Entering High School in the fall of 1947, a
joyful bunch of Sophomores, we began really to
be a part of Cohn and to make HISTORY!
Then the third year our team won the Inter-
scholastic League Championship in football.
During this same year we, with the rest of Cohn,
became a part of something new- our Student
Government. Several of our members were
leaders in the movement.
VVhen we came back to school in the fall, we
became money-crazy Juniors. Lewis Moore was
elected President, Alfred Turman, Vice-Presi-
dentg Jo Ann Headrick, Secretary, Joe Payne,
Treasurerg Charlie Sadler, Sergeant at Armtg and
IV. R. Spears, Chaplain. Along with the student
officers, Mr. Eddie Adelman was elected as our
sponsor to guide us in our ventures for the year.
Throughout the year our class sponsored variety
shows, square dances, box suppers, popularity
contests, and sold cold drinks and candy to get
the much-needed money for the Prom. The
money and plans ready, the affair was set for
May 28th at the Maxwell House. Allen Jewel
and his orchestra provided the music for the
By the end of the year six members of our
class - Dorothy Floyd, Barbara Lawrence, Lewis
Moore, Barbara Robeson, Sophie Schweining,
W. R. Spears, and Alfred Turman-had been
elected into the National Honor Society. An-
other member of whom We are justly proud is
Loretta Overby, who represented Tennessee in
Dramatics in the National Speech Contest. Al-
though our football team did not fare so well in
the "won-and-lost" column, several of our class-
mates performed at their posts exceptionally
well. Among these were Grant Sadler, end,
Henry Nichols, guard, Charlie Sadler and James
Bayne, backs. In basketball we fared much bet-
ter. Wfith Charlie and Grant Sadler as two of
the main cogs and others as reserves, we reached
the Hnals in the Eighth District, while the girls
with Nell Gassaway, an all-tournament player,
received the Sportsmanship Trophy. Before the
year was over we could see the foundation of the
long-sought-for addition to our school.
Our Senior year began as all others, with the
election of oflicers. They were Lewis Moore,
Presidentg Henry Nichols, Vice-President, Jo
Ann Headrick, Secretary, Georgia Young, Treas-
urer, Bill Morrison, Sergeant at Arms, VV. R.
Spears, Chaplain, and Miss Susie Langford, Spon-
sor. This year our class added a new member
in the charming person of Betty Ann Nichols.
Wie, along with the rest of the school, were glad
to hear that there would be a half-day school
because of the lack of space during the construc-
tion of the new building. Early in the fall we
received our rings. This was only the beginning
of our life as Seniors. Cards, invitations, caps
and gowns, and what-not were also purchased.
This year witnessed the beginning of the com-
plete student government in our school., Lewis
Moore, President, Alfred Turman, Chief Mar-
shal, Bobby Bush, Chief Justice, John Hawkins
and Nellie Sullivan, Justices. Our '49-'50 basket-
ball team, of which Eve -Don Moore, Richard
Pharris, james Bayne, Grant Sadler, and Bobby
Burroughs-were Seniors, racked up a total of
fourteen wins and live losses. The girls' team
reached the Regional Tournaments, aided by
Jean Morris, Loretta Overby, Nell Gassaway, and
Sophie Schweining. During this year three more
members - jo Ann VVilliams, Tommy McMillan,
and john Hawkins-of our class were elected
into the National Honor Society. After the work
was over, Class Day, May 17, gave a wonderful
day of fun and entertainment.
The highlight of the year was the Junior-
Senior Prom in the cafeteria of the "New Cohn"
which had been recently completed. The food
and entertainment were enjoyed by everyone.
The last few days of rehearsals were trying
ones for everyone, especially for our sponsor,
Miss Langford, who had been so patient with us.
Finally on June 9 we received our diplomas, for
"He that conquers himself, conquers all."

were present at the l950 banquet. The speaker
was Honorable Percy Priest, United States Rep-
resentative from Tennessee, who spoke on the
need to stress peace in our religious and educa-
tional Iields. The Neophytes furnished a skit
for the allair, entitled "Cohndora." The ban-
quet was enjoyed by everyone.
SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
Being very fond of cherry pie and overly inclined to
eat too mtlch. I had three pieces for dinner. That is
the only reason I can give for what happened afterwards.
I had just comfortably settled in a chair when all of a
sudden I seemed to be falling through space.
I landed with a thud in front of what looked like an
airport. From over the loud-speaker came a voice recog-
nizable as Atlstin Medlin's saying, H1975 XVorld Cruiser
leaving on runway live." I bought a ticket and climbed
aboard. joan Dotson, Shirley McPherson. and -Ioan Smith
Taking a seat, I saw Betty Ann and Henry Nichols with
their football team, and also Lucille Cowell and Nell
Gassaway, owners of a string of drugstores. I saw thc
famous professional boxer, Rtlth Lancaster, and her inan-
2lgCl', Mary Louise Sadler. -lean Morris, Nellie Chisam,
and Betty Sue Dyer had embarked upon the sea of matri-
monial bliss. Ann Barnes, .lo Ann Headrick, Melba Glass.
Dot Green. and Norma Hooper were also married. They
had all started on a pleasure cruise around the world on
the new ship that would get them home by bedtime.
Finally we got on our way, and several times we passed
large flower-bedecked balloons. Letting my curiosity get
the better of me, l asked a neighbor what they were and
was told they were advertisements put out by Sewell
Flowers, the Flower Man of the South.
Our first stop was Rome, and there I saw Albert Rob-
ertson, a famous architectural draftsman, who was admir-
ing the Roman ruins. A little further on I met Tommy
McMillan, civil engineer. giving a critical eye to the roads.
At the Riviera I saw Ramona lVatkins, who married a
millionaire and was still on her honeymoon.
Next we stopped in New York where Georgia Lewis and
Audrey Jordan had a thriving art studio in which all the
celebrities sat for their portraits. I dropped into the
radio station and heard Bill Morrison, known as The
Voice, sing a solo. He was accompanied by Barbara Robe-
son. Mary Louise Sadler, Betty Cuzzort, and jackie
Keathley, girl members of Spike Jones' Band, were also
seen in the big city.
Our next stop was XVashington, where Edna Sweeney
was first woman President and had started settling world
all'airs in her own feminine way. She had made Nancy
Bernard, Betty Bowling, Faye Fleming, and Nell Foust
Good XViIl Ambassadors to Foreign Countries.
Another prominent figure in the government was Lewis
Moore, who had become Chief justice in the Supreme
Continuing to Nashville, I found that Harvey's was now
managed by jimmy Cleghorne. and that Bobby Bush was
the manager of McLellans. I was told that the beautiful
window displays at Loveman's were done by none other
than Joan Brittain, Also on fashionable Fifth Avenue
was a new elegant photography studio called Smile Please,
owned and operated by Louise Martin and Martha Hutch-
ison. They were occasionally helped with their bookkeep-
ing by XVilliam Hutchison, who was an accountant.
Gordon Kent was now owner of the Paramount Theater.
and showing there that day was Gone II'i!l1 lim I'I1l7'l'ffIIl1I',
starring Loretta Overby, the toast of Hollywood, and her
leading man. Richard Pharris. The story was originally a
mtlrder mystery novel written by XV. R. Spears. He had
sold it to the movie studio and received enough royalties
to buy a mansion in the wilds of Alaska where he could
have peace and quiet to write another novel.
Frances Foster had devoted her life to science and owned
a laboratory on Broadway, She was continually blowing
up something, but the Good Samaritan Hospital was con-
veniently located near by. The nurses there were Jane
and june I-lall, Peggy Gailey, Rebecca Bruce, Frances Ty-
ler, Gail Rader. and Marilyn Reynolds. Marilyn had final-
ly reached the desired weight of 250 pounds and said that
she would be glad to tell anyone what her dieting secret
Dorothy Read had gained her master plumber's degree
and now owned her own plumbing business. She em-
ployed as her assistants Mattie Sue Crocker, Mary Louise
Robertson, and Dean Carrick.
Elizabeth Lawrence had devoted her life to having a
good time and had even started a club for others who had
the same idea. Honorary members were Charles Dixon,
john Schmittou, Mary lVeatherby, Sam lVade, and Albert
Jo Anti lVilIiams was private secretary to the president
of Montgomery lVard. Maxine Fuller owned the Life and
Casualty Insurance Company, and Bobby Armstrong
owned the Noel Hotel. She made enough money to hire
a private mechanic, jimmy Green, for her five cars.
Alfred Turman was a well-known physicist and taught
at Vanderbilt, where Don Moore was teaching Physical
Education and Malcolm lVebb was an engineering in-
structor. John Hawkins was now president of the lVest
Nashville Temperance ITnion.
The next stop found me in Florida. Stepping olf the
cruiser, I bought a newspaper and read that Sophie
Schweining. editor of the Florida Sllll newspaper, had
awarded Eloise Miller Andrews a trophy because her nine
children were all paper boys.
Strolling along Daytona Beach, I saw Donald Sawyer,
who had married a wealthy widow and was enjoying
himself on her money. I saw Lionel lVatkins, attorney-
at-law. The Tennessee Tigers' basketball team-Bobby
Burroughs. James fHotj Grimes, Grant Sadler, James
Bayne, and Charles Sadler-were seen basking in the
good old Florida sunshine. Their mascot was Kathleen
Hunt, six foot one inch model from Nashville. Elliott
Kestner performed with his trained coon dogs.
Hattie Ralston was now the chief asset of the Royal
Typewriter Company. Having easily beaten the world's
typing speed record, she now toured the country giving
performances in all the big business associations.
Doug Hemby and Jimmy Sanders owned an exclusive
dress salon where Barbara Murray, Georgia Young, Audrey
Fleming, and Barbara Lawrence were models. The shop
featured the original creations of Dorothy Floyd, famous
Robert Gaskill, along with David Greer and Roy Lee
Hutchinson, had bought up all the Kroger Stores, and
Bruce Vickery had become editor of V!ll'.Yffl', "the young
Dorris XVaggoner and Jack Perkerson were president and
vice-president, respectively. ofa Lonely Hearts Club. Both
were confirmed bachelors.
Glancing at my watch, I saw it was just about time for
the cruiser to leave again, so I climbed aboard and we
sailed away. At the airport I got oll' and went to my
lonely little cattle ranch in Montana. Suddenly I awoke
in my chair at home and realized it was only a dream.
But. after all, even Seniors can dream -can't we?

T'Vith their hopes high the i949 Cohn Tigers

season. Then disaster struck-Tom Marshall

a crippling blow to the "Black Knights," for most
of the offense had been built around Marshall
Opening the season without these two per-
formers the "Tigers" played their hearts out
against a Ryan High club which was tabbed for
the city championship. The "Panthers" pre-
Iourneying over to N'Vest's Alumni Memorial

as they squared oil: against the favored "Blue

"Tigers" had upset the "Dope" by tying TfVest,
Next in line came the "Yankess" from North.
The North Crew had its hands full defeating the
"Black Knights," 26-lfl.
The "Tigers" claimed their only victory of the
year at Sikes Field as they clipped the Hume-

counter with the "Eagles" from East, the "Tigers"
held a First quarter lead, 6-0, but lost to the high
llying "Eagles" 27-6. During that week a new
Heldhouse was completed for the team's use.
Against the Donelson "Dons" the "Black
Knights" played their best game of the year.
Facing the task of stopping the "A" Division
Champs the "Tigers" did just that until a fourth
quarter score and conversion gave the "Dons"
seven points and the game 7-6.
The T. I. and DuPont elevens were hard
pressed by the "Tigers" and had to go all out
to defeat them 20-6, and 18-6 respectively.
The Central "Golden Tornados" holding down
third place in the "AA" Division, behind M. B. A.
and Ryan, came within a hair's breadth ol being
"upset" by the "Fighting Tigers." The "Tor-

The "Black Knight Ironmen" enjoyed a successful as
well as an exciting season. The starting Eve-Don
Moore, Jack Matthews, Grant Sadler, Richard Pharris,
and james Bayne-proved to be good "Ironmen," as
they went in many games the total 32 minutes without
substitution. The end of the season found the Black
Knights seeded in third place with fourteen wins and
Five defeats. The team was built around Grant Sadler
and Jack Matthews, who scored 227 and 221 points,
respectively. Sadler and Matthews were the only re-
turnees from last year's starters. Don Moore, who was
only a substitute last year, gave a good appearance of
improvement by starting at center. Being a good
rebounder as well as a good point maker was proven
by Don's 227 points. Honors for dominating the boards
were shared by Moore with Pharris, another sub from
last year's team. Another substitute from last year who
showed improvement was jim Bayne. Bayne proved
to be a good playmaker by getting the ball to Matthews
and Moore. The chief substitute of the team was Bob
Burroughs, who was a good ball handler as well as a
good scrapper. No doubt school spirit was a great help
to the boys because they felt that they were being
backed np. This team had to face many difficulties
concerning practices. Having to go to Hume-Fogg
High to practice until our gym was ready to play in
was one handicap,
After Cohn's gym was completed, the boys had to
get acquainted with the large floor and the new fan'
shaped backboards. Then the backboards were
changed, so the boys had to get used to them all over
again. So the team should be congratulated, I think.
ln the tournament the "BLACK KNICHTSH had to
play East, whom they had beaten only once in two
years. Though Cohn gave a good light, the "BLACK
KNICI-ITS" went down 31 to 29. Captain Matthews
led his team with 13 points.
fLeft to Righty
Starting out with an inexperienced group ol girls at the beginning of
practice, also hindered by the lack ol a home gym to practice in and play
in, contributed to a losing season. The team was built around the follow-
ing girls from last year's team: Ann Fleming, Carolyn Jaynes, Julia Hut-
cheson, Nell Gassaway, and Sophie Schweining. Starring practice in the
Y.XN.C.A. gym, the following team developed: Nell Gassaway, Carolyn
Jaynes, Jennie Sutton, lorwardsg Julia Hutcheson, Ann Fleming and Jean
Morris, guards. Jean Morris was selected as Captain.
The many losses suffered in the regular season against the best teams in
Middle Tennessee only served as a build-up for the great team play in
the Second District Tournament. Going into the tournament as the
"underdog," the girls upset Mt. Juliet 25 to 23 to gain the finals. In the
Hnals against East they again played a fine game losing to East in an over-
time 30 to 29 and thereby winning the runnerhup cup and the privilege
to play in the Regional Tournament. In the Regional they were de-
feated by Tribble 27 to l9 in a very hard fought game. The Cohn girls
were truly the surprise team of the league.

The l949 Cohn girls' tennis team was com-
posed of Clarice Toombs, Dot Graves, Marilyn
Reynolds, Donna Sanders, Mary Ann Ridley, and
Faye Fleming. VVith Reynolds, Sanders, and
Fleming returning the 1950 edition should go
Ear in the league and tournament play this
spring. The outstanding feature of the '49 season
was the excellent playing of Clarice Toombs in
singles and the doubles by Donna Sanders and
YVith only two returnees from the '48 aggre-
gation the 19119 tennis team was greatly handi'
capped by the lack of experienced boys. The
outstanding accomplishment was the play of the
Richard Hunter-Lewis Moore doubles duo. This
tandem upset the highly favored and record
seeded entry ol Bradshaw-Grant from Lipscomb
and advanced to the semi-hnals. The other mem-
bers of the team Ed Collins, Jimmy Sanders, and
Floyd Cullop were very instrumental in the Cohn
victories over Hillsboro and Ryan.
Moore is the only returnee from the '49 team,
so there will be red-hot competition lor the other
four 'islotsf' YVhoever carries the '50 tennis
colors will carry them proudly and ably.

The l949 golf team was composed of: No. l,
Bobby Burroughs, No. 2, Richard Hunter, No.
3, Lewis Mooreg No. 4, Tommy Pollard. The
Tiger 'iLinkrnen" won two matches by defeating
North and Lipscomb. The outstanding match
for the "Tigers" was against Duncan. The Long-
horns were third in the league and highly favored
over tl1e Tigers, but the "Black Knights" tied
them 3-3 in the opening day of play.
The 1950 golf outlook is good. The team
will be without Hunter and Pollard, but with
Burroughs, Moore, and Mfayne lakes, plus the
addition of a fourth teammate, the "Tigers"
should be a very capable crew.
