First we found a spacious ground
VVhereon to build a school or college,
And so on far into the night
We formed the steps to higher knowledge
Our wisdom grew up like a tree
Whose branches in the blue sky nested.
Eager, strong our minds became
As in our hands the future rested.
But though we traveled far together
Along the path of untold flight
VVe ever strove to grasp and hold
Those secrets that determine might.
And we are now become a part
Of all our brains have ever treasured.
We know how blessed it is to learn,
To seek in life success unmeasured.

"At first the infant"-thus we began the long climb which has brought us to the
top rung of the ladder of education. Our first step was in the year 1933 when we
entered the time-worn Primary School on Dyer Street, most of us tugging on the
skirts of our mothers, without whom we would never have ventured into such a vast
new world. VVe soon learned that teachers are just as friendly as parents, and began
enjoying school life.
Nlost of our elementary years were spent in moving. YVhen the old Primary School
was condemned while we were in the second grade, we moved into the S. L. Sheep
School. There we felt quite lost among such older who somewhat resented
our intrusion. Later that same year we moved Primary School. Soon
we were busy at work on the primary operetta, T Bev.
Back into the grammar school for the fourth grade, we began taking part in the
annual production of the Dixie Land fllinstrel. In the sixth grade our school building
was again condemned and we moved into high school. The next year we were in
Complete charge of The S. L. Sheep Ne-zcy. Our class gave an operetta, The Uutlma'
King, instead of the usual minstrel.
After being in high school for over a year, entering it as freshmen was scarcely
different from the year before except for the "painting up" we received by the sopho-
mores. The next year was our turn at the deviltry and we certainly did our share.
We soon began taking more active part in the activities of the school.
Our junior year was spent in much hard work and many good times as we tried
to raise money for the junior-senior dance. XVe sold magazines, presented a play.
The Farmer's Daughter, and had a very successful junior carnival. The highlight of
the year was our annual dance, which we held in the gymnasium and decorated
"Last scene of all, that ends this strange, eventful historyn is our position as seniors.
Into our hands have fallen most of the responsibilities of the school. VVe have success-
fully edited The Loudspeaker and The Spotlight. YVe presented a play, Brother
Goose. Soon we shall have, instead of the usual Class Night exercises. a May Day
Festival, which will be carried out with all the pomp and glory of a royal court. Then
follows the dignified capped and gowned procession-our last act together as a class-
the finale of eleven nearly perfect years. Now we greet the future with determination
that our teachers and all those that have helped us gain so much shall not be disappointed
in us but proud of us-the Class of '-H.

March on, O Youth of America,
Biarch on in faith today.
Bring back new confidence,
To a nation torn in dismay.
Stand by with dignity,
Of tomorroW's rising throng.
Ye builders of the future,
March on with courage strong.
Before a world of ingenuity,
Where the vistas of hope are sublime,
O Masters of Supremacy,
Record your deeds
On the pages of time.

In your last delightful letter, you asked me what has happened to the class of '4-l.
lVell, I'll just tell you all about last night. You see, Mr. McCracken, now an aged
yet lively old man, called a reunion of the class of '4-l and everyone came but you.
lVe were all heartbroken not to see your cherubic little face there, but we understood.
VVe had a wonderful time nevertheless.
g The gala affair was held at the lVhaley's Astoria, a really ritzy joint, with Raymond
Slheely, Vice-President of the United States, presiding. I still think he'd be President
if Roosevelt wasn't. Anyhow, after an elegant duck dinner we settled back with a
tooth-pick and a full tummy and began telling of our adventures in the big bad world.
Everyone had his turn, beginning with Isabelle VVhaley, now lllrs. David Collins.
Isabelle told us she finally graduated from office girl to principal of the high school-
after Nlr. 1XIcCracken and llliss lVIcClees had retired, of course. She loves the job
and hopes some day to be superintendent. Though a little plumper, Izzy's just as
attractive and full of giggles as ever.
Teaching physical education in the school is Peggy Bright, nee Chesson. This
rather surprised us but we took it on the chin. Peggy and Bill have been divorced
eight times but always go back together.
Next our eyes rested on Glennor Culpepper, who's married to VVilliam lVIelson.
Glennor is a very domestic wife, with two children, Glennie and VVillie. VVilliam is
a preacher! Yep, it's true.
In snappy uniforms were five young ladies who had followed a lifelong ambition
to be a nurse. These angels of mercy were llilary Garner, -lean and June Springer,
Joanne Baker, and lN'Iarthanne VVingate. They told us of their adventures in hospitals-
which I wonlt repeat.
Andrew Toxey, looking very handsome in his tux, thrilled us by singing "No Dough.
No Nothing." Cf course, you know hels called Frank Sinatra the second. All of us
girls screamed and fainted. Five minutes later, the pandemonium ceased, and we
Sitting with his blushing bride was Floyd Steele. Floyd is garbage collector of this
fair city, believe it or not. He says this has always been his highest ambition-and he
loves the job. Oh yes-the blushing bride is Naomi Pugh, who sells lingerie in Belk-
Tylers. They looked radiant with happiness.
A celebrity in our midst was Annie llflae Gregory, now a glamorous star. VVhen
the whistling stopped, she told us of her latest movie, Annie illnv mm' the Forty lVolws.
She smiled sweetly when we complimented her on her strapless, backless, sleeveless
dress and said Frances Twiford had designed it.
VVe turned to Frances Twiford, now a famous dress designer, who shyly acknowl-
edged our praise. Frances had married and divorced eight Hollywood playboys. She
now seemed to have her eyes on Raymond Fearing.
Boopie, charming as ever, though still sadly in need of a hair cut, was star football
and baseball player of the college he attended-pardon me-zs attending. I believe
he's still a senior and a wow with the women.
Next came Wilma Dean Holt who writes the lovelorn column in the New York
Times. Deanie, despite numerous proposals, has remained single-simply because she
couldn't make up her mind.
Dougie lValdorf, who traveled from Africa, told us of his adventures in the jungles
with wild animals. His most unusual hobby is catching wild animals and training
them for his circus. VVe admitted this must be quite a job and admired Dougie's brave-
ness. He looked quite cute with his curled mustache.
VVorking in Dougiels circus are Thomas Tiller and Faye Bateman. Thomas, who
weighs a mere three hundred pounds, is the fat man. Faye is the snake charmer! It
came as quite a surprise to all of us. But snake charmer she is and a pretty one too!
Claire Love, who married lid on her eighteenth birthday, is Raymond's secretary.
She had on a carrot yellow evening dress and for some reason didn't look like the Claire
I knew. Oh! It just dawned on me! Claire had dyed her hair black and had on artificial
eyelashes. Ed must have liked her that way.
Next our eyes turned to Bill VVhite. VVe sat forward eagerly to hear of his life.
HI," said Bill, "have been traveling through the world explaining ICinstein's theory."
VVe looked at him in utter amazement. But it was true! XVhen Bill was twenty, he
told us, he had the misfortune of being hit on the head by a brick. YVhen he woke
up, he discovered he understood everything. He is known as "The YVorld's Most
The charming couple sitting on Bill,s left side were those two love-birds of the
senior class. Remember! lNIary Frances and DeLon Davenport. Of course they are
married. DeLon was a four-star general in the second world war and now is retired.
llac was a XVAVE. They now have five children and are the picture of a happy
Tommy Barnes, believe it or not, is a star of Broadway! Hels positively the hand-
somest thing you've ever seen. Though any female in the world would be only too
willing, Tommy has remained single. I could rave about his looks all night but I
There were quite a few stenographers in the crowd-Louise Hollomon, Louise
Cartwright, Ivlargie Everton, Evelyn Askew, and Florence Burgess. All of these
girls are working for Shelton Alexander, President of the Helicopter Company and a
millionaire. VVho'd ever have thought it of him? QIt's rumored that lXIrs. Clinkscalcs
designed the original planed
The brilliant senior, Bernice Perry, fooled us all by being the star of the Zeigneld
Follies. Her fame is widespread and she has been voted the Gypsy Rose Lee of 196-l.
VVe asked her to demonstrate her act but she refused.
Thomas Robbins is now a magician. Can you imagine it? He can read minds too,
he told us, and proceeded to tell us what Audrey Dawson, seated on his left, was think-
ing. It was quite interesting. Her thoughts were "Should I have spanked Dennis Jr.
for pulling the cat's tail this morning?" VVasn't that sweet? Audrey, now INfIrs. Dennis
Basnight, is teacher of the kindergarten here. The children are all crazy about her
and she said she loves her job. In her spare moments Audrey drives the Coca-Cola
truck for her daddy.
Dennis takes in washing. "I don't mind," he said, "I,ve never had a dissatisfied
customerf' VVe admitted this was quite a record. "Though I get dishpan hands some-
times," he added sadly.
There were quite a few authors among us last night. Audrey Brickhouse, lllavis
Stallings, lNIadge VVilliams, Jo Hanna, Henry Thornton, Calvin Kirby, and Klarion
Tuttle. I was quite surprised at that. Audrey writes murder stories, llavis is the
poet, Madge wrote the new history book used in nearly all schools, jo writes stories
of love and romance Chave you read Fresh and Frantic? Quite goodllj. Henry wrote
Your Cookbook, Calvin is the proud author of lfow To Do the Hufa in Ten Easy
Lessons, while Marion claims authorship of The Girl lffho Chezced Her Finger-nails.
Jean Outlaw is teaching jitterbug lessons to anyone who is interested. She married
james Butler and I hear they scrap so often that their neighbors have all moved away.
james runs the largest beauty parlor in this fair city. IVould you ever dream such a
thing could happen?
Shapely Sybil Liverman owns and runs "Sybil's 'liavernf' This is a ritzy nightclub
whose fame is widely known. IVorking in this high class joint are Evelyn Gray, Doris
Sample, Klarian Kleads and Xvalter Ryan. XValter is chef in the tavern. You should
sink your teeth into one of his steaks.
Ida Liskey, our petite blonde, now runs the city zoo. She's particularly fond of
the apes. I' I hey remind me so much of my friends," she quipped. Say! IVasn't I her
friend? Hmm. Klaybe that wasn't so funny.
llorgan Evans, all dressed up in his uniform, told us about his experiences as a cop.
I hey were all very thrilling, really. I always thought he should be a copy or something
like that because he was such an efficient safety patrol member in school.
Kitty .lo Beasley, married to Eddie Albertson, is living in California, where Eddie
is chopping down the giant redwoods. She is a very meek, obedient wife and loves her
manly husband devotedly. Isn't that the sweetest thing you ever heard of?
Shirley jackson, decked in mink, informed us of her marriage to jo Q. Vanderkilr,
the multi-millionaire. She's living a life of luxury and loving it. hlildred Looney is
her chic maid. She married Thomas Thompson, Shirley's chauffeur. All three were
pleased with the arrangement.
Next we gave our attention to Nina Sawyer, who is a radio serial actress. She
dramatically flashed her diamonds at us Cgifts from her many admirersl and said she
was very happy, thank you, and now she must leave . . . she had a date.
Carolyn Kleekins, a proud grandmother, didn't say a word about herselfg all she
talked about were the bright sayings of her grandchildren. It seems she has twelve.
Although she has white hair, she is still as attractive as ever.
Next, Gibbs Liverman, head job printer of Thr Daily fldfurzrzfe, said bashfully that
he and Mickey Rlarkland were going to be married after the reunion that night. VVe
all cheered and drank a toast to them. lNIickey's blush was very becoming and you
really should have seen the way they looked at each other. XVe decided not to bother
Alma VVard, llillicent XVilliams, Elizabeth Cooper, Betty lylorgan and Roberta
Paris are all Powers lllodels. Ol Gosh! It seems that they are voted five of the ten
most well-dressed women in America and are pin-up girls of every lad with an eye for
beauty. VVhat an honor, what girls! Yipee!
Beside these girls, of course, were several of the Hwolvesu of the past senior class--
Alfred Sawyer, for one. XVhen he could keep his eyes off Roberta, he told us he was
a farmer. He raises soy beans only and has made a fortune.
Roscoe VVhite, Linwood Long, Frank lVIcPherson, and Elliott Ward combined
their talents and now run a ladies, dress shop. This is the most popular dress shop in
town, naturally, with such irresistible managers.
Playing for the reunion were Douglas Holmes, hlarion Ambrose and Calvin Hill.
They had a musical career and are known as " I'he I'hree Corn-Slingersf' Ihey were
quite good, however.
VVell, Nada, next they asked me what 1'd been doing! It was really quite embarrass-
ing but as the others had been such good sports I couldn't refuse. So I told them!
Do you think I'll ever live it down?
It's really a shame you couldn't get here for the big brawl but I guess this letter will
almost make up for it-though you really should see the folks. And by the way, since
you're editor of Night Life, why don't you print this? To be sure, this class is famous.
especially Vice-President Sheely, so why don't you?

Everyone of you has recorded within this book a deed
You have searched each page finding that deed
Concise, terse in form-yet, complete,
Deep planted as a seed growing before you.
Illumined in full by the light of knowledge
Glowing in fadeless ink
Your deeds have been written herein.
Each of you has studied these pages
Until the flame of memory
Has stirred your feat from oblivion
And brought it forth in honor and reknown.
Close then this book
And let the undying memories within
Be yours forever.
