Ummnzu CLASS WILL To whom it may concern: We, the class of 1946 of Ford High School, of the town of Wattsville, State of South Carolina, U. S. A., being about to ass out of this sphere of education, in full possession of a crammed mind and an overworked memory, do make and publish this our last will and testament. We are arranging our worldly effects and consigning to our lawful and natural heirs all our worldly goods and chattels, leavin to each one the peculiar property seeming best fitted to his or her needs. We want it dis- tinctly understood Siat if an one of the beneficiaries of this will shall attempt to dispute or in any way change the items of this document, he, or she, must be immediately cut off wholly and entirely from any and all of its provisions. Item I. We give and bequeath to our beloved Supt. J. E. Ford our sincere and deepest gratitude for all he has done for us during our years at Ford High. We feel that he will have an interest in each victory, each suc- cless, and each honor that we may achieve in the arena of the world because it will be due to his faithful leader- s ip. Item II. We give and bequeath to the Faculty all the patience, forbearance, lon -suffering, and self-sacri- fice we ever possessed on the principle that "To him that hath shall be given." We aio give to the Faculty all the amazing information and startling knowledge that we have furnished them from time to time in our various examination papers. These bits of wisdom may be new to the teachers, but if they see fit, they can use them for the enlightenment of the classes to come after us. Item III. We ive and bequeath to the junior Class the following list of entailed estates, to which we declare them the reaf and rightful successors: li. Our seats in the classroom. May they endeavor to fill them as faithfully, promptly, and advantageously as we ave. Znd. Our Senior wisdom and dignity. May they uphold it forever with seriousness and gravity in spite of their natural lightmindedness and irresponsibility. 3rd. Any stubs of pencils, cracker crumbs, and wads of gum we have left in our desks or in any likely or unlikely places. We also leave our echoes in the halls and our secret spots for love making. May they keep the latter a profound secret from the Faculty. Item IV. The following may seem but trifling bequests, but we hope they may be accepted, not as worth- less things lavishly thrown away because we can no longer keep them, but as valuable assets to those who may receive t em and a constant reminder of the generosity of heart displayed in our free and full bestowal: lst. To Elsie Tumblin, Pearl Lynch's eternal search for a boy friend who will stick. 2nd. To Edwin Hazel, Joe Timmermanls baggy trousers. 3rd. To Niles Pulley, Harold Barton's ability to drum all day on his desk with a pencil. 4th. To Faye Thompson, Dora Lea Jones' front seat in class, along with her interested expression. 5th. To Bill Long, Betty Craine's success in attending to all class business during history class. 6th. To Ernest Satterfield, Durand Coats' desire to go into business. What business? No matter, but to go into business! 7th. To Peggy Hamrick, Naomi Lyonis art of hiding behind the classmate in front of her during class. Sth. To Dorothy Power, Virginia Self's boisterous and talkative manner. 9th. To Leon Hedgepath, Bobby Iohnson's even temper and smooth manner with the teachers. 10th. To Arthur Self, Cecil Davis' self-claimed right to be absent from school every Monday and to Jack Rhodes, all Cecil's unsolved algebra problems. llth. To Doris Foster, Virginia Owens' ability to crack a joke in every situation whether it be serious or amusing. 12th. To Bettie Anne Stewart, Sarah Coats' nonchalant entrance into school ten minutes late. 13th. To Iean Orr, Wilma King's "crush,' on the senior who dropped out of school. 14th. To Mary Long, Grace Lyon's erroneous mistakes in typing. 15th. To Buth Wilson, Virginia Long's Hirty looks and coy ways. 16th. To Elizabeth Lindley, Lillie Mae McKee's self-claimed right "to be different." 17th. To Janette Buckner, Edna Proctor's preciseness of manner and neatness of appearance. 18th. To Louise Hanvey, Marcelle Weeks' sore throat acquired by her being a hard-to-beat cheerleader. 19th. To Nell Lindley, Betty Lou Bobertson's natural curls which keep that permanent wave look. 20th. To Margaret Lyons, Mary Iean Thomas' school girl complexion which surrounds that winning smile. Zlst. To Harold Turner, some of Thelma Millers good grades so he can get a diploma next year. 22nd. To Tommy Cox, Loren Brown's ability to empty the school room in five minutes by singing in his very best and up-to-date style. 23rd. To Bettie Gwinn, Nell Spencer's pretty blue eyes, hoping they'll save her from the fate of an old maid. 24th. To Betty Jean Waddell, the added lights in Doris Simpson's hair with her freckles thrown in for good measure. 25th. To Leroy Cox, Hattie Mae Price's discarded chewing gum CEstimate-100 poundsD. 26th. To Rachel Broome, Betty Sawyer's sweet temper and even disposition. 27th. To Marvin Burdette, Harold Barton's neatness so that he will still hold the title of the best-dressed senior boy. 28th. To Bobbie Pulley, Edna Proctor's ability to keep every one on his toes. Here unto have I set my hand and seal. HCLASS OF 1946." '1'P"'l"" ' Y ' Il' vii! ' CLASS PROPHECY Seniors, it is a Well-known saying that "coming events cast their shadows before." Therefore, it is not as hard as many people su pose for one who takes the trouble to study the comings and goin s of his fellow crea- tures, to be something of a prophet, and to form some idea, more or less correct, of what tfieir future course of action will be. Having for some time been possessed with a strong ambition for the brilliant career of a detective, I have, as a means of reparation, ke t a sharp eye on all of you, when perhaps you were unaware you were being ob- servedg so I feel-,that I can judage with some degree of accuracy the lives into which your personal characteristics and inclinations will lead you in the years that are to come. Seeing so clearly what is in store for you and feeling that you long to know what lies before you in order that you may prepare for the honors and duties that are to be yours, I have taken time to put down in writing your uture as it appears to me. As I look into the land of the future, I can see our beloved President, Betty Craine, has become one of the most famous basketball coaches in the South. Sfie is taking her noted team on a tour. They will play in several of the largest cities in the United States and will continue to Hollvwood where a moving icture will be made of them. While in Hollywood Coach Craine and her team will be entertained by her old, classmate, Artist Dora Lea Jones. Dora Lea has been an artist on Walt Disney's staff for several years. Besides drawing for the screen, her special job is to care for Minnie Mouse's eyelashes- a secret ambition since hi h school days. As I look again, I see inside a large circus tent a black haired lady dressed in brilliant red sfacks. This is Wilma King who snaps a whip and issues her commands in a clear shrill voice as the large tiger performs. She married an animal trainer and is equal to her husband in the art of handling animals. Wilma is the only one in the world who can put these animals through their paces. I see a copy of the Chicago Tribune dated 1964 which carries the headline "Mystery Crime Wave Solved and Ten of Gang Jailed." The article says the detective given credit for the solution is none other than Joe Timmer- irnan wlgo serves with the F. B. l. Joe is famous in hunting down criminals, but he hasn't succeeded in his hunt or a wi e. You remember Bobby Johnson alwavs wanted to 'be a business man. He has realized his ambition for I see he is active on Wall Street, and he and his attractive wife are amon the social elite of the Big City. I see now on the street in the citv of Palooka a large sign with ie words "Expert Photography." This is the studio of Mary Jean Thomas who has won many customers with her pleasant smile. She is asked to take pictures of all the celebrities who come to town and of all the large social functions. Her husband is her able assistant. As I look into the future once more, I see Betty Sawyer in a trim black skirt and a crisp white blouse sitting in the private office of a famous business man. She is his efficient secretary and, to tell the truth, many people say she is the brains of the business. I see Betty Lou Robertson has opened the B. L. R. Beauty Shoppe and that her new hair styles are attract- ing the attention of all the ladies. She has a number of men customers who prefer her hair cuts to the barber's because she gives a "quiet" cut without the usual chatter. Betty Lou's chief competition is Sarah Coats who has opened a modernistic beauty shop only a block away. So far. the competition is friendly. As you know. Harold Barton was always "up in the air" in his high school days, this is really where he is today because he has become a pilot on a transcontinenral plane. Many attractive ladies seem to be interested in Harold, however he remains unmarried. I see only two girls of the class of l946 have chosen to be old fashioned housewives. Lillie Mae McKee is one, and she is noted in her communitv for her neat housekeeping and her good cake baking. Thelma Nllgler is the other and her husband says she still lives up to her motto, "she does what is right without being to . In the amphitheatre of one of our large southern colleges, I see in progress a play. On inquiry, I find that Shakespeare's "As You Like It" is being produced by the Senior Class and that thedirector is Edna Proctor. Edna's love for dramatics has won for her a prominent place among the dramatic directors in the south and since high school days Shakespeare has been her favorite author. I see Pearl Lynch has won fame on the stage as the leading black face comedienne in the current hit "Jemima" by Jessel T. Bedill. When her make-up comes off after the show and she is ready to leave the theatre, several stage door Johnnys are always waiting to ask to take her to the night spots. Doris Simpson has succeeded in landing the very wealthy bachelor who has come to her town. His past is not well known: his age is uncertain, and his wealth cannot be estimated: but he makt-?S D0flS very happy by making her allowance all that can be desired. Lo and behold. can this be two doctors from the class of 1946? Loren Brown is an old fashioned family physician who is liked by the mothers especially, because when the baby refuses to go to sleep Dr. Brown is called in. If his medicine doesn't have a soothing effect. he gets results by singing to the baby in his hum-drum voice. CicilhI?avis, the other doctor, is a nerve specialist and is popular with all the maiden ladies because he is still a ac eor. Isee Virginia Long has inherited from a wealthy uncle, a chain of department stores and they are being operated under her own supervision. One reason for her success is that she has employed several of her old class- mates for keynote positions in her stores. Grace Lyon is Virginia's private secretary, and Marcelle Weeks is the most attractive model in the whole chain of stores. Nell Spencer. who has iust comDlCfCCl her business CCIUCH- tion, has been employed by Virginia as advertising manager of the stores. Hattie Mae Price was employed as manager of one of the store's large delicatessens, but I learn that she eloped last week with the good looking head waiter. The voice of that well-known comedienne you hear over the radio on the 'iSaturday Night Special" is that of Virginia Owens. She started her radio career by contributing a small part on the program, however she made such a hit with the radio fans that she has replaced the leading lady. Virginia Self produces the sound effects on this lsame program. She is so efficient that her imitation of a mocking bird is equally as good as that of a roaring ion. I see Naomi Lyon, after serving four years as White House Cook, and becoming acquainted with all state secrets is considering running for president next term. In the little office on the corner of Main Street I see seated at his typewriter, Durand Coats, piled high on his desk are letters, some of which are announcing his agency for the sale of new products, and some are bills which he is trying to collect for goods already sold. Durand is still the salesman and his line is anything from chew- ing gum to washing machines. Seniors, since I have revealed to you your future as I see it, I hope each of you will play faithfully your part so you will be the glorious success I see you will be.
