We sincerely hope that in your hearts "The Spirit ot East High" will continue to dwell for all the years to come, 3 D . . Wcilckuameczfamw To us, the Beacon Staff of 1955, falls the very special honor of dedicating our book to our distinguished and beloved principal, William Ernest Evans, who by reason of chronological age will retire in June after forty-two years of matchless service in two great schools of Knoxville. Along with thousands of others, we deplore his leaving while still at the very pinnacle of his usefulness. Yet we reioice that he can retire with so much youth and vigor 'in mind and body and with a dignity befitting the best of men. Now that he can relax from the heavy responsibilities he has borne so long, we sincerely wish for him the richest rewards of leisure and many more years of health and happiness. ' ' Saud William Ernest Evans was born April 4, 1885 in Ashland, Ohio. The son of a Methodist minister, his youth was punctuated by numerous bishopric orders for his father to move to new pastorates. They lived in Findlay, Basil, Baltimore, Canton, Lorian, and Cleveland - all towns in Ohio. ln 1904 Ernest, as he is called by friends, was graduated from Canton High School, Canton, Ohio, famous as the hometown of former President William McKinley. Four years later he received his A.B. degree from Oberlin College, later to do graduate work at Ohio State, the University of Chicago, and finally at the University of Tennessee, from which he holds an M.S. degree. His profound love for athletics is no doubt partly due to his very active participation in sports throughout his elementary, high school, and college careers, having engaged in swimming, fishing, ice skating, baseball, basketball, track, and football, making the "Varsity" team in basketball and track in both high school and college. After graduating from Oberlin, he entered immediately upon his career as a teacher, taking his first school position in the Todd Academy for Boys, Woodstock, Illinois, where he taught for five years. ln the meantime, he pursued and married Helen Stewart, an exhilarating personality and as lovely a wife as heart could desire. ln due time to them were born four sons, all men now and holding enviable positions in their respective fields. All four served in the Air Force during the Second World War - Stewart and Richard for 5 1X2 years and Tom and John for 3 1X2 years. The older boys have since returned to the service. Colonel Stewart is now in Japan and Colonel Richard is stationed in Newfoundland, soon to return to Omaha. He led the famous squadron from Tampa to England and made a record flight of 17,000 miles in thirty-five hours, proving to Russia our ability to deliver an atomic or hydrogen bomb anywhere in the world. Tom operates the Safety Parking Lots in Knoxville, and John, an electrical engineer, holds an important position with NBC-TV in Rockefeller Center, New York. In 1913 Mr. Evans ioined the faculty of Knoxville High as a chemistry and algebra teacher. Five years later he became principal, in which capacity he served until KHS gave way to the numerous community high schools in 1951. 4 rrf '- ss 'r it aff :www 70e'!Ze'am Smut wwe During the administration of Mr. Evans, Knoxville High grew in size and importance until it was recognized as one of the outstanding high schools in the nation. There were four additions to the building and a vast extension of the curriculum from a strictly academic college preparatory school to a broad, comprehensive high school with all modern offerings on an 8-curriculum basis. Likewise did the extra-curricular work expand from a debating club and basketball team to a multiplicity of activities absorbed into the school day. Among them were the Chorus, Orchestra, Glee Club, Masquers Club, National Thespians, National Honor Society, National Art Honor Society, yearbook, iournalism, all types of subiect clubs, Future Teachers of America, physical education for both boys and girls in modern gyms, and four large ROTC companies, along with a IOO-piece military band. So victorious became Knoxville High in inter-school contests that it took a courageous school indeed not to view the prospect of a meet with the gravest apprehension. No doubt Mr. Evans was reluctant to leave KHS, in the development of which he played such an eminent part, but he took it in full stride and came to East with his characteristic eagerness to excel. Here he has had a better chance to assume more personal responsibilities. lt is quite evident that here he has come to feel closer to his patrons, his teachers, and his students. He smiles more and laughs much more. He has worked hard to make East High what it is today. We are all proud of its progress in every area. With all his responsibilities, Mr. Evans has found time to enioy the great out-doors and the richest phases of community life. By rail, by automobile, and by plane he has traveled extensively throughout the United States, always seizing every opportunity to look. over the best schools on the road. For many years he and his family have sought relaxation about their lodge in the Smokies, hiking, picknicking, fishing, and driving according to the inclination. A few years ago the family moved from Magnolia Avenue to their new and spacious home on Holston Drive, where numerous oak trees add magnificence to the well-kept grounds. ln keeping with his training from his childhood, Mr. Evans has always been loyal to his church and active in its work. Here in Knoxville he has divided his time between the First Methodist and the First Presbyterian churches. Professional organizations, civic clubs, and service clubs have all come in for their share of his time and attention. He has served on the Board of Directors for the YMCA, Boy Scouts, Executives Club, and Safety Council. He is a charter member of the Kiwanis Club in which he has received many honors. He has served it as a Director, Vice President, President, and District Governor. Through his contacts as a Kiwanian he has brought to school many of the country's most eminent speakers and entertainers. Mr. Evans has not talked much about his plans for the future. lt is quite certain he will not remain idle. His experience and abilities in education should be and no doubt will be put to good use for other educators. If any man knows what advice to give it is William Ernest Evans, dean of all Knoxville principals. 5 tes it . it S was is .sw Mgr ix sex W. E. Evans, Principal, happily extends the glad hand at welcome to Gale Gardner, Principal Elect. To serve as an Understudy to a retiring principal preparatory to assuming tull responsibility is same' thing good and Unusual in education, serving ta alleviate the shock at change in leadership. The welcome Mr, Gardner has received is a tribute not only to him but also to the "Spirit ot East High." 7 5 S Q l fi .5 if . s F53 r 1 1. it . 5 -42 'Z Q . 5 K ,,. get ' .555 ' 1 Stir. . . ESQ? K s S K ., . .gs -- liii Qale p- sw East High hails Gale Gardner as coming principal to succeed our beloved Mr. Evans. Already he has endeared himself to both students and faculty. His love for people is as evident as it is sincere. His affable nature and his lively sense of humor, along with an enviable personality, will make him a wonderful principal. A native of Rogersville, Mr. Gardner received his high-school training at Baileton High School in Greene County. He received his BA. degree from Carson- Newman College and his MA. degree from the Univer- sity of Tennessee. His professional experience includes a principalship in Jefferson City, two years teaching in Knoxville High School, two years as principal of Fairgarden, and twenty years as principal of Moses. "East High," says Mr. Gardner, "exceeds my fondest dreams. I am thrilled with the excellent faculty, the fine student body, and the wonderful building. I am over- whelmed with the honor of becoming principal." x CURTIS GENTRY Director of Secondary Education Mr. Curtis Gentry as Director of Secondary Education is seen tre- quently in our halls working quietly with the principal and teachers. A specialist in vocational guidance, he does a great deal tor students unknowingly to them. He is res- ponsible, also, for the In-Service' Training program for teachers, as well as the high-school curriculum for the city. WILSON NEW Superintendent of Schools For many years Mr. New has been a leading figure in Knoxville schools. From the way things move along we are sure his decisions are wise. No doubt he had much to do with the bond issue which will put our elementary and iunior high schools on a par with the high schools. is ii 'Ye SV' S i Mrs. Clarice Groh and C. A. Browning discover Esther Ellis at her desk, as usual, overwhelmed with a mountain of papers. Mr. Browning jokingly reminds her that her register must be in the office before she leaves school. The future Blue and Gray is no doubt covered up with other manu- scripts. Mrs. Groh makes the Bible come to life for many students and Mr. Browning lays the foundations for many future scientists. The Honor Society Committee relaxes after some important decisions. I. E. Gillenwater, social science and math teacher, has a variety of other duties, including sales of all tickets for school functions. Mrs, Jessie McSpadden, English teacher, is the schooI's authority on public speaking. W. M. Campbell, business teacher, divides his extra time among the Bankers, The National Honor Society, and the Annual Staff. Guerrant Tatem and Paul Brewer rejoice that the floor lamp works. Mr. Brewer, in addition to teaching various shop courses, is often called upon to do what others can't. Miss Tatem, home economics teacher, will repay him with some delicacy from a successful cooking experiment. No teachers could be more sympathetic to- ward students nor more helpful in teach- ing them how to live. ,ff Miss Ora Dowell, English teacher, Coach Char- les R. Moffett, math teacher, and Miss Jean Naberhuis, business teacher, look over a new kind of notebook for sale in the D. E. Store, over which Miss Naberhuis presides. We shall remember Miss Dowell for her thoroughness, Dr. Moffett for his pep talks, and Miss Naberhuis for her enthusiasm. Mrs. Evelyn C. Seale and Colleen Bennett look over the new Webster's unabridged dictionary iust added to the Library. Mrs. Seale, one of our new teachers, adds both youth and personal charm to the faculty. Miss Bennett cheerfully assists us to find just what we are looking for in books. She makes the Library serve its full purpose. Miss Emily McLaurin, language teacher, Miss Martha Thompson, business teacher, and Miss Gladys Million, math teacher - often seen together - pause at a front door for a friendly chat. Miss McLaurin directs the Spanish Club and the Latin Club, Miss Thompson, the Commercial Club, and Miss Million, the Future Teach- ers of America. Misses Million and Thomp- son like to putter around their many flowers. nl 'PW' Coach Buford Bible welcomes to East High Miss Mary K. Scarlorough, our nevvest addition to the faculty. Miss Scarbrough, formerly at Park Junior, teaches a variety of subiects. Mr. Bible, in addition to counseling the boys, teaching math and patrol- ling the halls, coaches round ball athletics, always being in the race for local and state championship titles. x .2 Here Coach Clayton Hancock points out a pressure point on "Old Torso," while Mrs. Jessie Kelly, health teacher, and Miss Ethel Capps, gym teacher, smilingly agree that he is right. Social science teachers, Misses Jessie Lou Neubert and Ruby Bird, talk some- thing over iust before group. Miss Neubert sponsors the senior class and takes a lively interest in civic affairs, while Miss Bird devotes untold hours to East High dramatics. Miss Edith Horton, Dean of Girls, Mrs. CatherineKelley,Sec- retary, and James Reasonover, Baseball Coach, confer in the Student Council room. From them we look for counsel, as- sistance, and recrea- tion. Mr. Reason- over's smile is in anti- cipation of becoming a father. 'Me Eau' acadtq Much of the East High "Spirit" is due to the faculty, every member of which is enthusiastic about the school. Whatever is best for East, the teachers support, and whatever is bad for East, they reiect. Bound by very few hard and fast rules, they feel free to meet every situation with reason and understanding hearts. At East the individual student feels himself as some- thing special to his teachers, who are always interested in his personal problems and in him as a particular personality. Our faculty seems to believe there is more to a school than iust subiect matter, although they lay great stress on that. Besides mere teaching of classes, each one of them seems to find something special to do to make the school a more valuable institution to the students. Under the guidance of such a faculty a student can live an abundant life and, at the same time, receive a comprehensive education. X M, Band director, Fred DeRobertis, arts and crafts teacher, Miss Virginia Parker, and choir director, Ed- ward Hamilton are shown with Mary Mc- Ever, one of "Pop's" talented vocalists. From them we learn to appreciate the higher forms of culture. A1111 hx 1 1 Hf4 -QW VQX X Q W! I f5.!

Otticials are agreed that among the students there are very few serious problems among them. On the other hand, many of them meet students of other fine schools in contests and come out unusually well. They always demonstrate an eagerness to win and a reluctance to lose. Win or lose, though, they can take it. 37 1 7 Iralee Akers Jane Acuff Qjfbwd I I B hy W5 Wil my if Q3 Qi, auaofw Sue Bailey Ann Baird 'lf B.

Educ Ours is the first senior class to be l00 per cent East High. Some of us entered East four years ago as freshmen, while others entered a year later as sopho- mores. The three classes preceding us included many who had a foretaste of Knoxville High with its fine traditions and its national prestige. We have a feeling that many of them were plagued with mixed feelings for KHS and EHS. Not so with the class of 1955. After months of anticipation we started out on a new venture in September T951-brand-new students in o brand-new school. Totally without tradition and prestige, we fac- ed the necessity of building our own. Our new building held out an attraction for many visitors, and the new furniture and equipment made us aware of the pains being taken for our education. From the very start we forged far ahead in athletics and began to establish an abiding patriotism and a spirit of good sportsmanship. An early open house brought hundreds of our parents and other visitors to the new school, making our entire community conscious of the presence of East High in our midst. Event followed event in our audi- torium and in the gym to make the school a part of the community. The Student Council became active, attracting some of the finest leadership in school and earning the confidence of us all. The Blue and Gray emerged as an attractive and informative school paper and became self-supporting. Staffed by the National Honor Society, the Beacon was delivered to 585 students and teachers early in May. The Glee Club and the Choir material- ized into excellence, and so did the Band. Many clubs and school service organizations came into being to make East High a going institution. ln April a committee for the Southern Association evaluated our school, call- ing some of us freshmen into confidential conferences .. ...- During our sophomore year we learned to take de- feat in athletics with a smile and to support our teams, win or lose. News got around that we students were developing a school spirit and were rapidly discarding our foibles. Our iunior year was marked by that same kind of progress. Discipline ceased to be much of a problem for our teachers, and we could sense a feeling of suc- cess throughout the school. We formed several new clubs and made them successful. Students and patrons poured almost 540,000 into our various organizations and activities. East was growing up, and we were grow- ing up with it. This year brought an unexpected enrollment of 763, calling for an additional teacher. Ours is much the largest class yet to graduate, numbering l75 at the time we go to press. Of the l75 seniors, 35 are in the choir, I7 serve on the Student Council, 20 engage in the various sports, 4 work in the D.E. Store, 9 are in the Band, 3 work in the Bank, 4 work in the office, 90 par- ticipate in dramatics, 25 are National Thespians, 22 staff the Blue and Gray, 25 are on the Beacon staff, 76 take the school paper, and T73 subscribed for the annual. Many have demonstrated superior talents in music, art, dramatics, and public speaking. Our class has received its full share of awards and honors. We hear favorable comments on East from all sides, and we have every right to feel a keen sense of pride in our school. ln four years we have helped to establish en- viable traditions and in many ways to build a better school. The "Spirit of East High" holds sway in every senior's heart, and we shall pass it on to those who follow in the years to come.

With one game under their belts and an upset in mind, the East Knoxvillians headed for the Atomic City only to be disappointed and humbled by the machine- like Red and Gray aggregation. All-State back .lim Grubb led the TD parade with four, but the sturdy Mountaineers never gave up. The next game was the initial win of the year for the fast-improving East eleven with Bearden the victim on their own gridiron. The East defense showed great improvement, while on oFfense, Co-Captain Mickey Ellenburg and halfback David Walls scored the touch- downs. The undaunted spirit of a football team, a great defensive show, and the wettest, muddiest conditions possible in a football game, enabled the Mountaineers to tie the powerful Bobcats. Led by end Leon Kirby, who blocked two punts, and Co-Captain Bill Gillett, who also blocked one, the East line gave the heavier Red and Black chargers a fit all night. A championship team with a well-trained line and a precisioned back-field took the Mountaineers despite a mighty aerial attack. Denied on three different occasions at pay dirt, the Eastsiders' spirit never waned, but the boys from the West were too much. On enemy territory the valiant Easterners came to tie the boys from South Knoxville. David Walls capti- vated two scoring drives with TD's, but the much needed extra point couldn't be obtained as Co-Captain Ellen- burg had one blocked and missed one. Thrill of the night was Charley Tarter's seventy-five yard iaunt with a kickoff to set the Mountaineers' second touchdown. Plagued by injuries to four starters, the never-say- die Mountaineers hit Rule for a quick two touchdown lead and then staved off a last half rally to knock oft the favored Golden Bears. 128 1955 74055452 S ooper, Bruce Teasley, Doug Candler, Fifth Row: David Gurley, FirsT Row: Mackey Ellenburg, Bradley Pinksfon, Carlos Harris, Joe David Walls, Jerry Graham.

A CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON With seven lettermen back and an experienced starting five, the Mountaineers had their eyes on the city cham- pionship honors from the very start. The timely scoring of Captain Riggins in critical games and the otherwise fine performances of East against their strongest oppo- nents brought 21 wins to 5 losses and captured the City Championship from Fulton February l8. All through the season the unerring accuracy of the guards, Hall and Horne, enabled the forwards, Ellen- burg and Gillett, to stay among the leaders in the city. Gillett with better than a 22-point average was among The tops in the state. Gillett, Horne, and Ellenburg were picked for the Sentinel's All-City Squad, and Gillett and Horne for the Journal's AA First Team. fl 24445433 Buren Hall, Benny Dillard, Charles Lovell, Carlos Harris, Mickey Ellen- burg, Bill Gillett.
