' M Remember back in the seventh grade when we first proved our worth U by topping all other grades in buying defense stamps and marching up and ' ll down the back campus with the Victory Corps? Even then the faithful few I ., I were making two exemptions, and all of us counted the years until we would be Great Big Seniors. And remember the Audobon field trip to Bivens Arm, l 1 4 the avowed purpose of which was the study of birds, but the true aim of Il ' which was fun, frolic, and a grand picnic spread? By the time we entered l the eighth grade we had learned to jump and dash for the next class at the clang of the bell, and to resist stubbornly as our teachers diligently tried to pound some math, science. history, English and Latin into our uncompre- hending minds. And how very proud we were of our little Dickie Brown, who won the D. A. R. History Award, and of Rubye McGlynn and Bobby Rich, who won the Citizenship Awards given by the American Legion. We were first organized as a class in the ninth grade. It was in that year 1 'V that our ranks were increased by the arrival of a loyal contingent from " P. K. Yonge and other schools. Remember in the tenth grade all our trials My ,ffa and tribulations in editing the "Comet"? And that wonderful picnic at X can J Magnesia which was climaxed by the falling of a fully-clad male into the pool? Serving as class president that year was W. J. Matherly, and we Q I sophomores felt that at last we were on our way toward graduation. 1 X r ,II L Our junior year with Dick Brown as president was a happy one: our goal fr g. was almost in sight. The planning and carrying out of the junior-senior ban- J! .0 A 1 quet and prom was the big event. Remember Shorty Stotesbury as Master of Ex f ,I Ceremonies? Another bright spot was the junior play, "Almost Eighteen," , QM Q J starring Leo Thomas. Marion Holder won the history medal, the war was over, tc ? 3 and our boys were able to settle down to the task of acquiring knowledge, ZJ 4' assured that they would not be called to serve in the armed forces. Then finally we, the Class of '48, accomplished something which many before us had failed to do: the annual became a realized ambition. And didn't we seniors have fun at Homecoming with Madge and Chris reigning as king and queen! How proud we were of our N. E. C. champion football team, with its galaxy of senior stars: W. J. Matherly, Buddy Smith, Eddie Garris, Fred Sivia, Dick Brown, Marshall Strickland, John Jones, Norwood Guilford, Richard Bashaw, and Class President Walter Matthews! "A Date with Judy" netted the highest proceeds of any play in recent years. Arriving from other schools during the year to graduate with us and swell our roll to an impressive one hundred were some of our most loyal and active members. And now that our last and best year draws to a close and we are soon to bid our friends good-bye, we are learning anew what the words of our Alma Mater mean when we sing, "Cherished are the memories precious Of thee, Gainesville High."

During its first year the council drew up a Code of Ethics. The following year it organized an athletic association, drafted traffic laws, and placed under student supervision two study halls. Since then, two important changes have been made in the plan of student government. The method of representation was changed in 1928. Instead of the classes being rep- resented by their presidents, four members from each class are now chosen by the student body at large. In 1929 the council worked with the faculty to set up the merit point system now used in the school. To secure more representative elections, the constitution was revised in 1931. The council is now a member of the district, state, and southern associations of student government, its president being the president and vice-president of the district and state organizations, respectively. In 1947 the council sent two delegates to the Southern Association of Student Government con- vening in Corpus Christi, Texas. During 1947, the council has striven for a broader social program, better relations between students and faculty, more school spirit, better cooperation between the school and the community, and broader contacts with other schools, and at the present time it is in the process of revising the constitution. 49 Hurricane JUNIOR STUDENT COUNCIL Members: Nellie Ruth Southerlandg Joann Sapp: Lou Elis Hill: Miss Kay Lewis: Tommy Hicks: Charlotte Thomas: Kenneth Cellon, Treasurer: George Smith, President: Jack Miller, Vice-president: Elaine Pumphrey: Jack Minnick: Billy Breeden: Victor Williams: Bobby Lovett: Sadie Diseker: Mary Ellen Gatesman: Bob Dunn, Secretary. The Junior High Student Council is composed of a representative from each junior high homeroom and a president elected by students in junior high. The president must be a ninth grade student. There is, also, one faculty advisor. The officers of the Council consist of President, Vice-President, Secre- tary, and Treasurer. The Council convenes every Monday afternoon immediately after school. Special meetings may be called by the president. The Council strives at all times to create school spirit and to bring about greater cooperation between students and faculty, as well as among the students themselves. 50 Hurricane SENIOR HIGH HONOR SOCIETY E ' Old Members: Mary Anne Canova.

The team's record in Northeast Conference play Was seven Wins against no losses, this record gave them the Conference championship. This is the first time, since the school became a member of the conference in 1942, that a G. H. S. football team has Won the N. E. C. crown. With many lettermen returning, prospects are good that the '48 team will repeat this fine record. 75 Hurricane CHEER LEADERS Mary Ann Davis, Kitty Goodbread, Nita Nell Bohannon, Molly Duke, Quincy Lee MCCOY, L0!'1'3if1e Coles, Ruth Nobles, Betty Jean Davis.

They had four games on their schedule and lost all four but showed great improvement in the last two games. The team was organized this year by Mrs. Jo Friday and on the whole had a very successful season. Many of the players will be back next year, and it is hoped that from these experienced players a winning sextet can be formed. Because of the annual's going to press in March, there are no pictures of other sporting activities at G. H. S. All teams have many lettermen returning and are looking forward to very successful seasons. '79 Hurricane 80 RTS SPRING SPO Hurricane 81 Hurricane 82 IFQUKMTQS b w? 'ff Zia?
