Through the "Cami:ra's eye" we have
tried to record for you limpses of the high
lights of the year at T.H.S. We have
devoted a maximum amount of space to
pictures. The Duotonepicture cover is the
first major change in cover design on the
Golden E for many years.
The editors and sponsor wish to thank
the many members ofthe faculty and stu-
dent body whose cooperation has made this
book possible. We especially wish to thank
the business and professional men whose
advertisements contributed to the financial
success of this Golden E.
The pictures of the night football games
were furnished by Stricklin Studios.
Mr. Morlock fHal Burnett, is a fidgety,
nervous, grouchy old goat who doesn't like
anything but money an never does anything
but workand gripe about his pains. He even
brings his assistant, George Plew fH.G.
Robertsonj, and his secretary, Miss Akers
fBarbara Barnesl, home to work. He won't
let his daughter, Mary fJerry Carrl, be-
come engaged to Joe LanconifCharles Siskl
because Joe's papa is poor. So when Joe's
papa Luigi fDavid Davidsonl, comes over
to talk for Joe, the old fellows startafeud
worse than the Hatfields and the McCoys.
Luigi has a bad heart and can't take it. He
dies at the hospital . This should end every-
thing, but it doesn't. Luigi gets permission
to haunt Mr. Morlockuntil he gives his per-
mission for the wedding. The family, es-
pecially 13-year-old Jessica QBarbara Bak-
erj, thinks Morlock has lost his few re-
maining marbles. Morlock accidently
takes too many sleeping pills, and he kicks
the bucket, too. Both Morlockand Luigi re-
fuse to leave until thin s are settled.Luigi's
wife, Martha fJudy garter?-2 comes down
from Heaven after Luigi. ucifer fRance
Barkerl, the rounder-upper of lost souls
from "down below" comes up for Morlock.
Mrs. Schmaltz fCaro1 n Bowlingj comes by
on her way down and, looks around for a
likely-looking Husband No . 15 fher other 14
died and, don't tell anybody But shepoi-
soned 13 of theml. Mr. Morlock sees the
undertaker, Mr. Black fEarl Whittlerl,
come after his body and watches a happier
life go on without him in the Morlock home.
Mary gets ready for the wedding: Jessica
prepares to start her wrestling careerg and
Mrs. Morlock fMarian Bartonl is actually
smiling again. Right in front of the deceased
Mr. Morlock, Dr. Brown fHarold Irvinl, the
family doctor, actually holds her hand and
hints at matrimony. MorlockseesJake, the
newsboy fCharles Reederj, and Mrs.
Finch, the washer woman fMildred Klaf-
ferl, come in to tell Joe what a wonderful
man Luigi was. Mr. Morlockfinally realizes
what a heel he's been. If only he had an-
other chance. Just then Mildred the maid
fShirle Holbrookl awakens him. He had
spent the ni ht on the sofa. It was all a bad
dream. He cidnt' die and neither did Luigi.
A very reformed Mr. Morlockrnakes vast
promises, okays the wedding, and peace
inally reigns at the Morlock's.

Homecoming festivities began this year
when a football skit was presented by Mrs.

rousing pep meeting, Then came the parade
in which all the clubs were represented by
colorful floats. Headed by the band in their

where the floats were judged. The Hi-Tri
Float won first place and the French Club
Float was judged second. That night the
Eagles victory of 48-13 over Olney put
