This class of 1950 has no unusual history. Most of us started
to school about twelve
years ago, and by constant prodding on the
part of patient teachers have finally emerged on the threshold of
graduation. Our accomplishments have been average and we lay claim
to nothing unusual scholastically, but we leave this brief record
as a formality, hoping
be more accomplished.

years ago are Betty Ryan, Emaline Forrester, Charles Miller, Carolyn
Cooper, Louise Elmore,
Alta Berry, June Rowe, and Bobby Wilson.
Through the first six years of school we had several teachers. Our
grammar school teachers included M s. Farris, Mrs. Hudson, Miss

When we entered our first year in high school, Mrs. Burkett was
our home room teacher.
Ina Gibson and James Aaron were added to the
class at this point. Then came our Jr. II year with M s. Mildred
Myers as Class Sponsor. We had two new comers to our class, J. C.
Farley and Charles Wilson. we plugged away with the usual number of
ups and downs through this year, and our freshmen year found us with
Mr. Hawkins and M s. Martin as our sponsors. We caused them many head-
aches but they survived the year. We felt proud to have graduated
from Junior High School.
As we became sophomores several new faces were added to our class,
these included: DeWayne McCauley, Herman King, Bobbie Ramey, Buford
Williams, Braxton Harbinson, Lacy Redmill, and J. L. Gay. Mr. Turner

C L A S S P R O P H E C Y O F 1950
I recently stepped from a Pan American Clipper in Birmingham, Alabama
and was greeted by a lusty voice of a cab driver.
Taxi! Taxi! Lady! he exclaimed, I thought the voice had a familiar
ring and looking closely, I recognized DeWayne McCauley.
I dashed over to say hello and since I was going up town decided that
this was the cab for me,
We talked over old times, and naturally the conversation drifted back
to our days at Curry High.
I learned that Herman King was an all American football player. Bobby
Ramey was manager of the lunch room at Curry High School. J. C. Farley was
still waiting for Ruby Short to give him an answer. Betty Ryan finally got
hitched and was living in Hueytown, Alabama. That J. L. Gay had acquired a
wife and inherited a fortune in doing so. Sylvia Gay was a telephone opera-
tor in Jasper, Alabama. June Rowe was teaching Science at Walker College.
Bobby Wilson was a famed radio announcer. Murvel Drummond and Alfred Webb
were studying law at the University of Alabama. Emaline Forrester had
joined the Piney Woods Trio, which had reached the top in entertainment.
I was getting a little hungry so I went into a drug store to get a soda.
When the waitress came I recognized her to be Vaudie Robinson. We were both
glad to see each other and after I had told her of my days adventures she
gave me some more dope on the 1950 Seniprs. She said that Ovalene White had
become the Head Nurse at the Peoples Hospital in Jasper, Alabama. Arley Brid-
ges was the leading farmer in Piney Woods. Frank Woodley and Charles Wilson
were in partnership and were operating the South's Largest Dairy. Ina Gibson
was happily married to J. C. Kelly and was a leading lady at Curry. Sarah
Lee was the most highly celebrated woman in New York. Clyde Johnsey was driv-
ing a Greyhound Bus from Jasper to Birmingham. Braxton Harbinson was head
of the City Commission in Jasper, Alabama, which had grown to be a city of
The day was almost gone so I decided to see a movie, I stepped up to
get my ticket and found the ticket agent to be Juanita Lee. Since I was
alone I invited her to attend the show with me and she was very glad to do so.
As we sat in the show I told her of the seniors I had come in contact with
that day, and she told me that Daurice Daniel was secretary for the Governor
of Alabama, in Montgomery. Alta Berry was studying at the University of
Alabama hoping to succeed Mr. Turner as Math teacher at Curry High. At this time
the news reel came on and who would appear on the screen, but Lacy Redmill, a
Navy Officer, returning from over seas duty. Then came James Aaron announcing
his candidacy for the President of the United States, on a live and let live
platform, Next came my big surprise, Harold Dailey and Earnest Lindley dig-
ging gold in Alaska. It seems that they had struck it rich. The main show
had started and I was surprised when Louise Elmore appeared doing the Blondie's
Boogie. This climaxed the performance.
When the show was over, and I was on my way home to San Francisco, I was
truly grateful for the friendships which had endured for twenty years. I
plan to visit Alabama again and hope to contact my class mates again.
