The time has come to part. We’ll meet again, somewhere again, Your memories warm our hearts With faith that’s true, We’ll remember you, Auf Wiedersehen, High School. Auf Wiedersehen, We’ll meet again In future years to come. We’ll go our way, from day to day, Our lives have just begun, We’ve started right To win our fight, With strength that comes from you, You’ve shown the way, now we must say, Auf Wiedersehen, High School. By Norma Jean Welch CLASS COLORS SILVER AND BLACK CLASS HISTORY Near the first of September in 1942, Twas then that our school work we began to do. Though some we have gathered and some we have lost, For some there be who have found greater the cost, Tis now we’ve presented with honor embossed. A small boy with tear-filled eyes and trembling lips looked up into his mother’s face and said, “Mother, I don’t want to go to school any more.” “Why son,” his mother told him tenderly, “you must go to school. Why don’t you want to go?” “Well,” the boy answered, “I can’t read or write and the teacher won’t let me talk, so I don’t know what to do.” Many of us as members of the Class of ’54 were probably only a little less confused than this boy after our first day at school. Nevertheless we soon became accus¬ tomed to the crowd and noises that character¬ ized the few minutes before the bell in the mornings, the pushing through the doors and running from the building. Yes, we soon learned the way of school life and many of us were pleased with the thought of it. The next year we were veterans at the business and this, our second year, and the years that followed saw us climbing onward and upward learning things which we doubt will be forgotten as long as on this earth we do dwell. We met reading, writing, arithmetic and later we became acquainted with such things as spelling and later still harder language, in the form in which it was then mildly introduced. All these along with the facts of geography and history and many things not found in our text books were either totally or partly by one means or the other instilled in our minds. Though the years seemed to drag by for us we soon found ourselves standing at the door of high school by way of the eighth grade. High school brought new experiences, new thrills, and new sorrows, with what seemed to most of us to be a thousand new people. We soon learned that we were thought of as “that noisy, awkward, and unlearned freshman group.” Yes, we were probably the noisiest group in school and no less awkward and unlearned but not in our own esteem. We felt as if we were going places now that we were in high school. Many of the boys remember suffering through their first year of Agriculture. The Home Economics girls will probably never forget the troubles and achieve¬ ments of their first year in that department. This thing called algebra was new to us but we were soon introduced and began the toil involved in working the problems found therein. The classes seemed long but when the bell finally rang we were off again happy in the thought that we were quite grown up now. The year that followed this was one in which we were neither the fairest nor the foulest, the greenest nor the most learned. This heat in the race for the diploma seemed extremely mild after our turbulent year as Freshmen. We did not, however, cease to meet and learn of things which were no less exciting or testing than those of the first year. The year in which we were Juniors we began to feel as if we were somewhat more a part of our school. The thing that stands out in our memory of this our third year in high school is “the run for the money.” Yes, we had the prob¬ lem of accumulating quite a large sum of money with which to give our seniors a most hearty congratulation upon their achievement of the goal to which we were also working. I believe that despite the problems which we faced we enjoyed accepting the challenge and that from working together we came to know one another better and learned things which contributed to our education. Thus our Junior year left with us memories of many occurrences both pleasant and unpleasant. “Receive what cheer you may, the night is long that never finds the day.” Yes, the night seemed long but the day finally dawned in which we found ourselves occupying the position of Sen¬ iors. One of the major things which we had worked for and looked forward to was now a reality. We enjoyed the thrill of being so near the completion of our high school career though the thoughts of parting were sad for many of us. Our days as Seniors brought many important decisions to be made to be put in action then and later. We remember the grind of our classes and the effort we were required to exert in them. Nevertheless, the enjoyment we found in just being Seniors was enough to pay us for our ef¬ forts not to mention the long looked for gradua¬ tion. As we come to the close of this our high school career, we remember many varied happenings throughout the years. The things we have gath¬ ered through these experiences have had a great part in building of you and I as persons. What we will be as citizens of our communities, coun¬ ty, state, nation, and world is largely determined by what we have been taught in our youth, the things we have accepted and learned from this teaching, and the decisions we have made for our life. I hope we as the Senior class of ’54, as we now approach graduation will take the facts we have learned and the decisions we have made in this the first part of our lives seriously, to the extent that we join with each other, with the peoples of our habitat, and with God, our Cre¬ ator, to make the world we live in a better place for everyone—a world of freedom and peace. By Jean Blaine and Thad Dowdle PROPHECY THE MAGIC POT OF " 54” First Witch: Thrice the blinded cat hath mewed. Second Witch: Thrice and once the hedge-pig whinned. Third Witch: Harpier cries, “’Tis time, tis time.’ All: Round about the cauldron go; In the poisoned entrails throw. Toad, that under cold stone, Days and nights have thirty-one. Swelled venom sleeping got, Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot. All: Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble. Cool it off with a baboon’s blood, then the charm is firm and good. First Witch: I see in the year of 1964, in the metropolis of New Franklin, one of the greatest hospitals where the greatest operation in history is taking place. The surgeons, Bill Zickgraf and Bobby Biddle, are removing a hangnail from Dwight Norris, the President of General Motors. As I look around the operating room I see a few of the registered nurses from Emory Hospital assisting with the operation. They are Freda Moore, Bobbie Burch, Ruth Edwards and Jeana Sue Cunningham. Also assisting in the operation are the famous laboratory technicians from John Hopkins, Jerry Dills and Perry Cabe. They had just finished developing a new cure for the dread disease, Delangotrachitis. Looking in on the operation is Dan Angel, world reknown photog¬ rapher and touchup artist, taking pictures of this historic scene. As I leave the hospital and gaze into the town I see a new night club with its neon signs glaring out at the night. It is the “Hot Spot” and I see the manager, Bill Dennis, with his wife, Lela Jo Gailey. In the door comes Bill Waldroop and his fiance, Naomi Elliott. They have their own television program, “Life with Mother.” They take a seat as the show begins. The play is “The Dark Nights,” starring Mark Dietz and Luetta Browning, two of Hollywood’s best loved actors. Co-starring are Charles Baldwin and Bobby Mar¬ shall, two world famous comedians. After the play comes a ping-pong exhibition by Joe Pat¬ ton, the world’s champion, and Joe Bingham, the national champion. Next comes an exhibi¬ tion game of basketball introducing Spike Buc¬ hanan, James Buchanan, Dolpha Fonts, Doyle Henson and Colbert Henson which makes up the “Dribbling Five” known from coast to coast as the greatest of all. Now comes the main event of the evening, “Kid” Gene Mashburn, battling “Killer” Wayne Stewart for the world’s heavy¬ weight boxing title. The referee for this main event will be the former flyweight wrestling champion of the world, Jackie Hoilman. The program comes to a close and once again I gaze into the immense city into the home of Ben “Gotrocks” Edwards, the multi-millionaire bachelor. It is in the midst of one of his great parties where women are many and so is the wine. I see Hugh Dowdle, a financial wizard, talking with one of the society ladies, Carlene Sorrells. In the middle of the floor I see a huge crowd of men surrounding some girls. The girls are Sarah Corbin, Annette Dalrymple, Edwina Bryson, and Marlene Fox, the luscious models for Bill Bradley’s Chlorophyll Back Scratchers Company. I am now fading away from the present as my sister comes from the past to foretell some of your future to you. Second Witch: I see in outer space, a small space ship traveling toward the planet Mars and inside this craft sitting at the controls is the master of all engineering, Sir Richard Dryman, and his brilliant co-pilot, Max Holland. Beside them sit Tommy Cole and Richard Compton, space aeronautical navigators. Also above them sit Raymond Ledford, chief aeronautical astrol- ogist and Paul Roper, interplanetory communi¬ cations officer. As the ship lands on Mars, Kenneth Guffey, space taxi manager, jets out to meet them. Every¬ one climbs aboard the space taxi and roars off to the underground tunnelway of Mars, owned and operated by Connie Potts and James Tallent, which take them down inside the planet to the city of McCullumoid named after their beloved president, Nancy McCollum. She greets the vis¬ itors and shows them through the city’s museum, which is managed and supervised by Mildred Morgan and Hattie Sue Ledford, two great art lovers of science. Next they visit a great cathe¬ dral where the Reverend Holland McSwain is holding services for the superior brains of Mars. Beside the latter in their ceremonial robes stand Charles Pickens and Richard Gibson, for they are monks from the planet earth. Next they ven¬ ture into a great hall of literature where they meet the two modern day philanthropists, Victor Teague and Jerry Sutton. A little further up ahead is a huge crowd and addressing that huge crowd is the famous speaker and lecturer, Paul Sorrells, speaking on the love life of Antherpox infected grasshoppers. Beside him stands one of associated fame and intelligence on the mat¬ ter of termites mating season, Barbara Edwards. Next we approach the morgue where Ray Wil¬ liams and Earl Williams, the friendly undertak¬ ers, are embalming the body of Gareth Hughes, who died as a faithful citizen trying to save a crippled bug from being run over. PROPHECY (Continued) As they look into the offices of many of the tall buildings on Mars, they see Konda Teague, Joyce Shook and Mary Sue Welch, efficient stenographers of Planets Incorporated under the management of Jimmy Webb, noted millionaire of the Total Failure Railroad Company. They also look in on Lawrence Rogers, quizmaster of the program, “This is a Life.” All at once out of the sky comes a rocket with amazing speed and sends everyone running. It is none other than Doyle Clarke and G. D. Buchanan, the Hot Rodders of Space. As they get ready to leave the planet, they notice two girls and two boys, Sue Bryson, Bar¬ bara Crews, Jack Cabe, Branch Buchanan get¬ ting into one of the flying saucers. They are the acrobatic team which have won world fame for their stunt flying with their saucer. Along comes Max Henderson in his one man helicopter zoom¬ ing up and down and waving at everybody. This is one of his home inventions. Just then a large space patrol rocket comes in from an important mission. James Ayers, Eugene McDonald, Clif¬ ton Young and Ray Young which are the most important members of the Space Council on earth step out. They are on an important mis¬ sion for the president. I now begin to fade away into the past while my sister comes forth to fortell the rest of the future of the class of “’54.” Third Witch: I am looking at the city of New York and into some of the famous hot spots of the city, I see Billy Harper, owner of the famous Latin Quarters and manager of the Blue Room. Inside the Blue Room the “Dizzy Three,” Mari¬ lyn Higdon, Marilyn Hogsed, and Marilyn Hen¬ son are singing, “I’ll get you yet, you bugger you.” Geneva Bradley passes by selling ciga¬ rettes and taking pictures. Back stage I see producer and critic, Douglas Conley rehearsing a couple of the chorus girls, Sue Blaine and Jean Blaine, on a new number. I look across the states to Chicago where N orma Jean Welch’s band is playing at Bett Cabe’s new night club, “The Passion Pauser.” The band is playing “Dragnet.” After the music we see Thad Dowdle and Fred Deal the world’s top-most entertainers, imitating the late Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. As I drift on down to New Orleans I see the Mardi Gras is in full swing with all its wonderful glamour and color. The President of the United States, Sam Holland, is present for the historic event. I see on the front of one of the floats, a lovely young woman parading as Mrs. America. It is no other than Jean Henson. Now is the time to unmask the king and queen of the Mardi Gras. The King shall be, just a moment now, ah, yes, it is Roger Seay and the Queen is Marianne Johnson. Now the Queen and King of last year, Jr. Dills with his wife, Jimmie Sherrill, shall crown them. I am now looking down into Florida where I see a lovely young lady sunning on the beach. Her name is Margaret Sorrells, the society col¬ umnist. Beside her also sunning is her close companion Maxine Peek, reporter for the Tampa Daily Times. Out across the water I see Clyde Houston, the president of Fisher Bodies, stand¬ ing on the deck of his great yacht. Here comes Max Morgan, speedboat racer and winner of the world’s title for speedboat racing. Wayne Led¬ ford, Dan Angel, Annie Dills and Betty Dehart are water skiing behind him. They are inter¬ national champions for trick water skiing. About five miles out further across the ocean I see a ship with a deep sea diving outfit and preparing to a s c e n d is Adolph Conley and Neville Wooten, deep sea scientists who are studying the life underwater. Here across the ocean comes the S. S. Mermaid plowing along at 100 knots. At the helm is Prelo Crawford, the ship’s captain. He is setting a new record around the world. I now gaze into the city of New York to the top of the flag pole atop of the Empire State Building where Margie Kimsey is sitting. She is trying for the world’s record for flagpole sit¬ ters. She has been sitting for two years. The governor of New York, Clara Belle Anderson, is below talking to three of the state senators, Evelyn Jones, Betty Jo Roper, and Mary Nell Thompson about a law outlawing flagpole sit¬ ters. Also in the building trying for the world’s typing record are Carol Lee Daves, Barbara Arnold, and Clyda Mae Campbell. All of these girls have big jobs in the government. The of¬ ficial recorder of this event is none other than last year’s champi on, Ella Vee Campbell. I see Ag¬ nes Guyer, Betty Keener, Beatrice Johnson and Mary Johnson, the swimming stars of the new movie, “The Wet Four,” in their rehearsal pool getting instructions at the last moment in the pool below. As I fade out of the present and from the prophecy of these Seniors, I shall always re¬ member them as the students that have tried the hardest and achieved the most in the maturity of their lives.
