ig c oo, we, T e National Honor Society,
are attempting to show that The Spirit of East High is novv a reality - that
our school is novv a mature institution, having earned tor itself on enviable
place in the hearts ot those it has served. We sincerely hope that in your
hearts "The Spirit ot East High" will continue to dwell for all the years to

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.

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
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.

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
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
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.

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."

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
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.

while Mrs. Jessie Kelly, health teacher,

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.
retary, and James
Coach, confer in the

sistance, and recrea-
tion. Mr. Reason-

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.

The East High students are enthusiastic about everything they
do-whether it is studying, playing, cheering, listening, or lust relax-
ing. 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.

7048 240-Eu! 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 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 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. '

A spirited South team, led by speedy half-back
Jerry King, who scored all twenty points, downed ct
young, unsuspecting East team at Evans-Collins Stadium
in the opener of the year for the Knox Prep League.
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-
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.

Affer a slow sTarT, The firsf sTringers builr up a sub-
sTanTial lead and Then everybody goT inTo The acT as The
subs poured iT To The oufemanned Green Hornefs.
In a cold, drizzling rain and on a field ThaT a re-
specfable hog wouldn'T even sfick his nose in, The Blue
and Gray fell before The onslaughT of The powerful
Orange and Black Cyclones. AfTer a sTrong first half,
which ended wiTh Easf only one Touchdown behind, The
roof caved in and Turned loose The swifT BeTsy backs To
snaTch all hope away.
ln The season's finale, The lVlounTaineers held The
powerful FulTon offense To a ToTal of less Than o hundred
yards gained during The game, buf The Falcon defense
was The Turning poinT of The conTesT. The aggressive
enemy defenders caughf almosT as many EasT passes as
The EasT boys did and Turned one of The inTercepTions
info a Touchdown, wiTh a backfield bobble accounfing
for The oTher marker.
So ended The T954 season, wiTh a final record of
3 wins, 5 losses, and 2 Ties. Hardly a sTarTer escaped
being handicapped by an iniury aT some Time during The
season, freauenfly leaving viTal posiTions To be filled by
less experienced Teammafes. However, The abiliTy of The
younger boys To play Their besT when called upon and
a greaf number of The boys being capable of playing
Two or Three differenT posiTions gave The Team added
sTrengTh and encouragemenf when iT was needed mosT.
An example of such versaTiliTy was Co-CapTain
GilleTT, who was elecTed cenfer on one newspaper's All-
CiTy selecfion and end on The oTher paper's dream-Team.
Co-Capfain Ellenburg was also selecTed To each paper's
Team, giving EasT a fine represenTaTion on The All-STar
picking. Ofher MounTaineers menTioned on The selecfions
were Linemen: Leon Kirby, Roy Griffin, Earl Reece,

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.
