Out of the harbor into the deep channel-yes, thats what we find has actually
happened as we look back over the last few years.
In September, 1933, thirtyfnine small and slightly shaky little passengers came
aboard the U. S. S. Francisco to embark on a voyage of readin', 'ritin', and 'rithmetic.
The passenger list read-
Nellie Arnold Mary J. Hopkins Eva jean Rainey
Anna Lee Burns Winnie Hume joseph D. Reavis
Marie Burns Stanford Hyslop Robert Rembe
Delbert Burns Mary E. Johnson Arthur jr. Scott
Mildred Beasley Phyllis King Edward Richard Seale
Anna Lou Chappell Elizabeth Lockwood Raymond Shanks
Donald Collins Marjory Loveless Veradine Schlamp
Robert Crecelius Paul Meadows Lucille Snyder
Freddy Curless Robert Ross McEllhiney Alice Marie Tyree
Betty Lou Dejarnett Billy Nelson Leona Weber
Duard Edwards Harold Osborne Norma Jean White
Sophia Gentry Joe Osborne Robert Whitman
Ray Virgil Green jerry Ott Grace Young
We had smooth sailing through the first eight years, stopping only at the sta'
tions marked along the way to pick up and discharge passengers. Those who were
transferred to different ships were Delbert Burns. Marie Burns, Freddy Curless, Donald
Collins, Duard Edwards, Sophia Gentry, Marjory Loveless, Ray Virgil Green, Eva
Rainey, Robert Rembe, Paul Meadows, Arthur Scott, jr., Billy Nelson, Jerry Ott,
Edward Seale, Raymond Shanks, Norma White, Robert Whitman, Alice Marie
Tyree and Grace Young.
Those who came aboard to finish the journey with us are Mary Frances Sloan,
Barbara Miller, Ruth Thompson, and Carl Harbison.
Others who were with us at some time during the years but not permanent pas'
sengers were Mary Helen Clark, Harold Arbuthnot, Bobby Cox, Orville Cox, Char'
les McQuery, junior Ostricher, junior Osborne, Howard Sirles, Noble Thompson,
John Vickers, Billy Rembe, Bobby Dale Moore, Rosalie Rhodrick, Lillian Mier, James
Bard Dardeen, Alice Green, john Green, Charles Miller, Noah Riley, William Wat'
kins, Billy joe Wright, Mary K. Mattox, and Lillian Stiles. ' V
In the spring of 1941, the members of the ship received invitations to begin a new
voyage. Some called this voyage high school, some called it, higher learning. I guess
the name really makes little difference because on the day we steamed out of the harbor
we found thirty people aboard, and we were all christened "green freshmen."
We chose Miss Broadwell as our sponsor. Our president was J. D. Reavis, our
vicefpresident was Bob Ross McEllhiney, and our secretary and treasurer was Stan'
During this year's journey Buddy Witherspoon, Edwinda Abran, Hubert Gab'
bert, Clyde Garrigus, Helen Tetrick, Louis Mitchell, and Betty Lou Dejarnett, decidf
ed that they too might take a different course, so we bade them farewell and were
OUR VOYAGE Contd.
We were christened "silly sophomores" as we started the second year of our voyf
age. One of our former shipmates, Edwinda Abran, decided she would like to conf
tinue her journey with us, so we welcomed her back aboard. While we stopped for
Edwinda, two more passengers presented tickets and came aboard, they were Lorene
Clark and Doris McGill, But to our sorrow we found that Imogene Bottoms, George
Barker, Robert Peirson, Delta Burns, Virginia Clem, Chester Mitchell, and joe and
Harold Osborne, would not continue the journey with us.
This year we elected Mr. Casey as our new sponsor. Our president was Bob
Ross McEllhiney, our vicefpresident was Stanford Hyslop, and our secretary and
treasurer was Ruth Thompson.
It was fall once more. Again we were setting sails to reach, our goal by "45." This
year we were christened "jolly juniors." We chose Mrs. Green as our sponsor. Our
president was Stanford Hyslop, our vicefpresident was Bob Ross McEllhiney, and our
secretary and treasurer was Ruth Thompson. A day that will be long remembered
by this crew was the day we received our class rings. Every chest was just a bit puf-
fed on that day, and hands waved proudly through the air for many days. f
Then on March 31, the class presented their play entitled "Mystery at World's
End." Nice work! mates. Everyone on deck enjoyed it. On April 14, the juniors en'
tertained the seniors at the junior and Senior reception. It was fun and exciting, but
also just a bit sad because this made us realize our' journey was swiftly coming to an
Before this cruise ended one of our mates Richard "Dick" Lockwood, joined the
navy. We are proud that "Dick" is'one of us.
The passengers came aboard again in the fall of "44". This year we sailed under
the name of "dignified seniors". Since this part of our cruise.was so important we'll
give you a day by day description by recording here a copy of the log from the cap'

OUR VOYAGE Contd.
As we came to the final days of our journey the stops alolng the way became more
and more significant. The stop at "Commencement Hill" is one we will all remember.
Before we could ascend "Commencement Hill" our baggage had to be checked
and there were many things which we left behind.
The formal statement of the things we left is as follows:
To Mr. Hyslop-another "cocky" senior class.
To Mr. Borders-a new joke book.
To Mr. Kolb-a speedfup program in speech.
To Mr. Wilson-another 6' 5" average team.
To Miss Witherspoon-a carton of gum so that she can repay the people that she
has deprived of this priceless article. '
To Mrs. Green-a band with fewer "squeaks".
To Mrs. Dougherty-a file cabinet with a Yale lock.
To Mrs. Harrington-an eighth grade with another set of twins, just to keep things
To Miss Ennes--a pair of Carmen Miranda's shoes so she can see what is going on
without standing on a chair.
To the juniors-we leave our dignity, that is, at least as much as we have shown.
To the sophomores-we leave all our discarded gum which may be found under var'
To the freshmen-we leave a bar of Lifebuoy Soap and the right to call the present
eighth graders "greenies" next year.
We the senior boys fexcept Carl' Harbison, will our bow ties to the sophomore boys.
We the senior girls of 1945 will our Hgure flattering plaid shirts to the junior: boys.

OUR VOYAGE Contd.
As the members of the class of 1945 left "Graduation Hill", we bade a sad fare-
well and we realized that for the first time we were at freedom to choose our particular
Elizabeth Lockwood and I, Leona Weber, had long since decided on our career, so
with little hesitation, we started working toward our goal.
"Liz" became a talented photographer and I a news reporter. We soon landed
jobs. After several small assignments we had the pleasure of visiting the Hlsland of
Dreams". As we went aboard the U. S. S. Francisco, who should greet us but the
same old "'Dick" Lockwood, as captain of the ship.
Hungry and tired we reached the island and started in search of a hotel. Now who
would ever have thought that J. D. Reavis would become a hotel manager! I wond'
ered if he required his employees to be as prompt with room service as he was in getting
to class. Before I had time to recover from the shock, "Liz" directed my attention to
a little lady in a far corner. Why should I care about a scrub lady in a hotel? But
"Liz" insisted that I do this particular one, so I stepped closer and found that Mary
Jane Hopkins was gaily washing away.
The next day as we planned our work we decided we needed an automobile. How
surprised we were, when we entered the garage, to see Anna Lou Chappell emerging
from under a car with grease smudges covering her face. She never was mecihanically
inclined, although the number of hours she had spent' in a "37" Ford should give her
a thorough understanding of that car.
We drove through the country and suddenly we saw a big farm with a lot of
chickens. It looked very much like a good old Hoosier home. Seeing this made us
hungry for fried chicken, so we stopped to see if we could buy a springer. When we
rang the bell, Doris McGill answered. Oh, well after all the surprises we had been
having, we could expect anything now. Doris told us that she and Odell were mar'
ried soon after graduation and that they were living with Lorene and Glenn Mahan, at
present, since Udell's work as construction engineer had brought him to that dis'
trict. "Pud" and Glenn had a nice home and he was a very successful farmer. How-
ever, we didn't get a chicken, because Glenn wasn't home and Lorene said she couldn't
harm one of her little baby chicks. We were very glad to see these old classmates but
that didn't aid hunger, so we continued to look for food.
When we arrived in town, we saw a beautiful, tall, slender girl selling some'
thing in a booth that seemed to attract a large audience. We pushed our way through
the crowd until we were in hearing distance. Can you imagine Barbara Miller as a
sales lady? She was telling a story about what RyfOrisp had done for her. "Where
there's a will there's a way", that's what 1've always said. After Barbara had made
several sales and the most of the audience had left I had a word with her. She told
me that Mary Frances Sloan was popular as the best welder in a nearfby airplane
factory. Mary still insisted that if she kept working with pilots, shefd find her "one
and only" someday.
OUR VOYAGE Contd.
We then went into a nearfby lunch wagon which had admirable management.
However, I dare say, he was benefited by Veradine Schlamp's helping hand. As bad as
Vera wanted to be a Wave who could have foretold that she would become a waitress
working for Carl Harbison? They always did get along well together though.
After a few days of work, "Liz" decided that she would rather be the proprietor
of a studio.- Although we didn't work together after that we still had close connec-
tions. I don't know where, but "Liz" ran into Ruth Thompson and Anna Lee, Burns.
She told me that Ruth was her private secretary and Anna Lee served as her recep-
tionist. She told me they were very efficient in their work and she didn't see how she
could get along without them.
One day, I unknowingly entered the "hum drum" of the political world. It was
close to election time and I was continually seeing bill boards that read "Vote for
McEllhiney and Creceliusf' Upon inquiring I found that Robert' Ross McEllhiney
and Robert Crecelius were running for Governor and Senator on the Democratic
ticket. I wondered how those two could agree on one political. party. When I inter'
viewed them I found they still argued as much as ever only to my astonishment they
now had the same point of view. In talking with old friends, they informed me that
Stanford Hyslop was a Captain in the Air Corps and was stationed in Hawaii. I
wondered if his interests were still strictly airplanes!
I started home but to my disgust I ran 'Out of gas in a small rural district. There
was a "cute" little house near by with a mail box: which bore the name-joe Osborne.
Where had I heard this name before? Oh, yes, he was a former classmate. Who do
you think answered my knock? It was the same shy little Phyllis King. Osborne now.
I was surprised to find Phyllis Don living in the country, because she had never liked
farm life. Noticing my surprise she quickly said that anywhere was heaven with joe.
She was glad to be of assistance to me and quickly remedied the situation by calling
the nearest gas station.
With gas in my tank, I was on my way. It was getting late and I had to get back
to the city. I decided I would like to have some doughnuts. So I stopped at a sign
that read "Butterball's Pastry Shop." I walked in and found that the neat little owner
was Mildred Beasley. I had quite a chat with her and she told me that Lucille Snyf
der was desperately searching for employment. She said she just couldn't find a single
place where her talents were needed. -
Again I was on my way. Having been quite, busy for the last month, I decided
to enjoy myself for a change. Oh, just my luck, Edwinda Abran's all girl symphony
orchestra, starring the great opera singer, Mary Evelyn Johnson, was in town. Of course
after the wonderful performance was over I couldn't get a word with either of them.
They were surrounded by Abran and Johnson fans.
Stopping to think over my experiences of the last few days, I realized that I had
some account of every member of the class of "45", that had sailed on the U. S. S.
Francisco. Although each had followed his separate course, I had found them once
more on the "Island of Dreams."
Our high school voyage is growing late
We'll long remember every mate
So now our memories we will weave
Into a verse we'd like to leave.
The captain called "our president"
To our class he was "heaven sent."
We appreciate it Bob, yes one and all
Your memory we will oft' recall.
Then there was Edwinda, Ruth, Lucille, and Lorene
You're always part of each pleasant scene
Always quiet, industrious, and true
Always so dear to the white and blue.
Veradine and Phyllis are quite a pair
And this guess we're sure is fair
Although we don't know what you plan
We're sure you dream about "a man."
J. D. and Stanford we would say
Have had their fun along the way
In making jokes they've done their share
Of this I'm sure you're all aware.
Leona and Elizabeth you will quite often see
In just the place the teachers say "they had
If there is mischief to be done
You'll find them there "just havin' fun."
Doris is quiet you'll all agree
A part of "our class" she'll always be
Her interest's in a soldier boy
So now we'll wish you lots of joy.
Mrs. Shephard McLean
Mrs. Matilda Blackburn
Mrs. Carlotta Anglin a
Three Mary's had we in our class
Each one we'd say is quite "a lass"
Mary Evelyn, Mary Frances, and Mary Jane
I'm sure success you all will gain.
Then there was Bob Crecelius too
Without him "My-what would we do"
He's quite a lady's man I'd say
He'll find that girl some time, some day. '
Two others whom you'd never see
Unless they're quiet as quiet can be
Anna Lee and Mildred too
We're wishing happiness to you.
Carl-well he's quite a guy
Tis many a girl he's caused to sigh
So this advice we'll give to you
Watch out Carl you might fall too.
Anna Lou and Barbara Jo
What can we say "Well I don't know"
Except unless I miss my guess
The single men will be two less.
Although we name him last to you
To us he's the red the white and the blue
Dick left our class with the navy to fight
We sing your praise with all our might.
You can see why our voyage will long remain
A sacred spot in memory's lane
Each passenger to us is very dear
We treasure the memory of every year.
