lt was a clear. pleasant day in September, lfllfff
when one hundred and hfty-three poor, timid
freshmen entered Du Pont High School. How
long and spacious the hall seemed! XVe were
frightened by the large group of people and
especially those big Seniors who seemed to own
the place. But in a few weeks things seemed
to brighten up with Mr. Ferguson to guide us
on the first part of our journey.
XVe started the year Ollt right by electing Paul
Kuykendall as president, with Miss Mary Porter
Vivrette to supervise our group as class sponsor.
XVe were well represented in all sports this year
even if we were green freshmen. Albert XVilliams
made all-city in baseball.
XVith eager eyes and faces we looked forward
to our sophomore year, and our aims and aspira-
tions were even higher. As sophomores we were
a part of the place. Again this year we chose
Paul Kuykendall for president, but had a new
sponsor, Miss Elizabeth Osborne. Harry Gupton
The second vacation over we again journeyed
on to achieve the goal for which we set out. By
this time our members had dwindled to seventy-
nine. At our first meeting we elected, for presi-
dent, Earl Swensson and were sponsored by Miss
l.enna Cowgill. lVc also had a new principal,
Mr. Ronald Brinkley. This year the subjects
were slightly hard: in fact, we even had to take
our books home occasionally. Albert XVilliams
made all-city in baseball again this year along
with teammates Harry Cupton and Buck Jones.
Oscar McClintock was all-city in basketball and
another member of our class, -Iimmy Muhlig, was
T.S.S.A.A. golf champ.
XVe had our class party but, of course the
junior-Senior Banquet was the main event. lt
was a decided success. Earl Swensson and G. C.
XVarren attended Boys' State during the summer.
So ended the eleventh year of our great struggle
for higher education.
Our last year in high school now begins. This
year was to be a very good one. Miss Caroline
Perry was our sponsor, and for our president we
elected L. K. Thompson. Katherine XVilliams
was voted to reign as football queen at the home-
coming game. Our class was well represented
on the team with Paul Kuykendall as captain
and Albert XVilliams as alternate captain. Abby
was also on the all-star team. Quite a few boys
and girls were outstanding on the hardwood.
The Senior basketball boys, namely Harry
Gupton, Captain, Albert XVilliams, Alternate
Captain, Oscar McClintock. Buck Jones. and -Ioe
Barnes, gave the spectators plenty of thrilling
moments with, their performance and their sup-
port helped the team chalk up the interscholastic
league and seventh district championships.
Harry Gupton and Joe Tom James made the
seventh district all-tournament team, I-larry Gup-
ton making the all-district, and Oscar McClin-
tock made the all-city team.
The editing of Hickory Nuts, our school
paper. was hard work, but lots of fun. Paul
Kuykendall was its editor. Then came the time
to publish the LEAVES or HICKORY. This proved
to be quite a responsibility, but Johnny Hopkins
was a very capable editor-in-chief. As the time
grew near, everyone was anxiously awaiting the
Of course, we think our class to be the best
ever to graduate from Du Pont High School.
But l think that all of us-good, bad, and indif-
ferent-are sorry to say good-bye to dear old Du
Pont High School.
As we encounter the conquest of a new world
we realize there is new work to be done: here
a pause and a great sincere thanks for guid-
ing teachers, for friendships. for knowledge, for
a 17I'I.T'fff'g'6' of going to school, for memories that
are never to be forgotten, for tl1ousa11ds of things
to keep forever.
