Woods in the spring.

In the fall of 1944 the class returned with a decrease of twenty-four in

Sophomore Class History
Last year when school started there were 28 "Green Freshmen." They
clidn't think that it took them very long to get adjusted altho' the upper classmen
still have their doubts. Soon after they had crossed the uthresh-hold of higher
learning," Bobby Griggs was elected their Presidentg Sherdel Harper, Vice-
President: Charles Mainer, Ir., Treasurer: ,Iohnny Kopah, Secretary: and Miss
Ruth Iones, Sponsor.
The class had its first real school party at Christmas time. With snow on
the ground on a truly beautiful night, they held their Christmas party around a
huge Christmas tree loaded with presents. In the early spring the class decided
on a Valentine Party to which guests of other classes were invited. There were
"stacks" of good sandwiches and plates of cookies and all the candy the class
and their friends could eat.
By this time this green class were no longer "green" and when they were
forced by "politeness" into asking the Sophomore Class to accompany them on
a picnic they really felt resentful but after hiking to Durham's Woods with
these Sophomores and the class' special guests, it was found that the class could
have a grand time every time they chose to have a get-to-gether.
At the close of the school year several were honored for their high grades
and at one of the Lion's Dinners, Imogene Allen was a guest of honor.
Now in 1944-45 the class are Sophomores and number 23. Jacob Milstead
was elected President with Vernon Vinson, Vice-Presidentg Norma Reynolds,
Secretary, Dale Wigart, Treasurerg and Mrs. Sue Hill, Sponsor.
The class gave to the softball ten an excllent player, "Shinguard" Milstead
and the prettiest attendant, Wilma Williams, in the coronation ceremony.
The class gave to the Galatia Basketball Squad, the best player they had
Cat least so the class thinksj the famous "Tody" Vinson. Since so many of the
class were members of the First Five team and the second string, they planned
a formal basketball party. To this party' the class invited guests and the entire
basketball squad, their coach and manager with their guests. There was circle
dancing and just a wee bit of "jitterbuggin", along with the singing of old songs
and new ones. Again the class had grand food, the best sandwiches, hot dough-
nuts, candy and all the the crowd could drink.
At the close of the first semester Wilma Williams and Norma Reynolds held
the high honors for grades.
Climaxing the year the Sophomores in a home basketball tournament held
to raise money for the Red Cross won over the Seniors in the finals by a score
of 24-23. The starting line up was Vinson and Milstead, forwards, Manier,
centerg Adams and Wigart, guards. When Vinson fouled out Perkins came in
as substitute and played a "remarkable" game!

Freshman Class History
On September Sth of this year seventy-eight students enrolled in High
School. They started the year cheerfully with May Fern Smith as Class President
and Mr. Moody as Class Sponsor. Their first social activity was a "Dog Patch
Party" where the best dressed "Lil Abner" and "Daisy Mae" won recognition.
They were Patsy Jackson, Don Raley, jim Smith and Betty Perdue.
The Freshman Class presented the school with Boston Ivy plants which
were planted with the highest hope on the south side of the building by Jackie
Carter, Wendell Bradley, Bob Upchurch and Grant Mings.
Several Freshman boys went out for basketball. Carl Griihths, Gratton
Karnes, Amos Kent, and Don Raley made the squad.
The girls not to be out-done formed several good volleyball teams.

The Galatia Hi-Y Club was organized during the present school year. The work,
which thus far has been somewhat hampered by lack of needed literature, has
consdsted largely of Bible study. Other activities which are contcmplated are
discussions on live topics, handicrafts, and drama.
The purpose as stated in the constitution is, "To create, maintain, and extend
throughout the school and community high standards of Christian Character." In
keeping with this purpose are the four planks of the Hi-Y program, often referred
to as the four C's. These are:
An induction ceremony built about these ideals is now in the making.
Gal-atia students were awarded Federal and State Certiflcates for First Aid
Work after a half-day examination by Mr. Taylor, State' Examiner: and Mr. Capps,
Mine Examiner. The Health Class devotes six weeks of its time to First Aid
starting with book work. Later they learn how to dress wounds. From dressing
wounds they go on to learn about broken bones and splints They had a pretty

The Pep Club of Galatia Community High School under Mrs. Hil1's
supervision was re-organized this year for the first time since 1939. It is an
organization to which all of the girls of our school belong. Every girl was
automatically a member, but after this year Freshmen will be initiated.
At the first meeting the club elected ofiicers for the year. They are as
follows: President. Edna Devine: Vice-President, Mary Lou Perdue: Secretary,
Ruth Bond, Treasurer, Dorothy Baker. Also in this meeting, red skirts and
white sweaters bearing a winged emblem were chosen as uniforms.
A party honoring all softball players were given November 10. Games were
played and delicious refreshments served.
The vocal organizations, chorus and sextette, under the leadership of Mrs.
Mary Jarvis helped out in all school programs.
This year the sextette sang two num-bers at the camival, "Little Sir Eco",
and "Smilin' Through."
The chorus had an important part in the annual Christmas pageant, "Twas
the Night Before Christmas". Ma and Pa in the play tuned in on the radio
station just in time to hear Ed Darnell telling everyone to buy more war bonds.
Io Ann Moser played the part of an "Angel" who read verses from the Bible.
Under the direction of Mrs. Jarvis, "VVhen Betsy Ross Made 'Old Glory',"
a musical playlet of three acts was given April 27. In the cast, Ed Darnell
played the part of General' George Washington, Billy Dixon of Colonel Ross,
Gene Sloan of Robert Morris, Perry Maple of Captain Anderson,'Betty Maple
of Betsy Ross, Mary Fern Smith of Patience, Rose Mary Triplett of Rebecca,
Betty Perdue of jane, and Phyllis Naugle of Penelope.
The chorus usually assists in the baccalureate and graduation exercises.

High Lights of Sport 1944-45
The call for basketball practice on October 5th was answered by 26 boys.
Most of them new to high school basketball. After one month of practice they
ionrneyed to Shawneetown for their first scheduled game. This was a good
game and Galatia came out on top by a 33-24 score.
In the second game the Bearcats were hosts to Broughton. This game
proved an easy victory for the Bearcats as the Final score was 50-21.
The third game of the season was between Galatia and Equality. The
taller boys of Equality proved difficult for the Bearcats, but the Cats fought and
won out by a 28-24 score.
Following the Equality game the Bearcats were in ,lohnston City for a game
against a strong Johnston City team. Although they fought hard, they lost this
one by a 52-16 score.
The next game the Bearcats were hosts to a strong Zeigler live and again
came out losers 30-15.
The sixth game Carrier Mills came to town to hand Galatia their third
straight defeat by a 53-22 score.
Galatia was still the loser as Thompsonville defeated them 40-24.
The Bearcats couldn't hit their stride when they journeyed to McLeansboro
and came home losers by a 38-26 score.
The next game Galatia entertained Shawneetown and broke back into the
win column by a' 55-26 score.
The tenth game found the Bearcats in Crab Orchard. The small Crab
Orchard gym proved a handicap and the Bearcats lost a close one 22-25.
The Bearcats accepted an invitation to the Holiday tournament and were
scheduled to play McLeansboro. The Cats lost this game 35-19 and were
eliminated from further play.
In their next scheduled game they were hosts to Eldorado. This proved a
good game although the Bearcats lost by 42-27 score.
Galatia then traveled to Zeigler to avenge an earlier defeat but found a much
improved Zeigler team and lost this one 63-29.
The fourteenth game found the Bearcats in Carrier Mills losing byalop-
sided 73-30 score.

The Bearcats again clicked and defeated Thompsonville in a very close,
rough, and exciting game on the home Hoor by a 37-35 score.
When Goreville came to Galatia, Coach Moody used all the boys to try to
even the count but Galatia won 52-8.
Crab Orchard then came to town and the Bearcats clawed deep and won
The Bearcats traveled to Eldorado for revenge of an. earlier defeat but lost
a very hard fought game by a 32-29 score.
In their next game Galatia went to Equality and came home victorious by a
The Bearcats were waiting for McLeansboro and had their revenge in an
exciting thriller and won 39-37.
The last scheduled game of the season was an easy victory for the boys as
they beat Broughton by a 64-31 score.
ln the Regional Tournament the team drew Eldorado. The game proved
an exciting one, but when three First team men fouled out early in the fourth
quarter, things looked dark, and the boys lost by a 41-26.
The Bearcats finished the season with 10 wins and 12 loses but the boys
gained a lot of experience. Vinson a Sophomore, led the scoring with 193 points,
Golliher 166, Knight 158, and Sullivan 146. The squad had no first five as
seven or eight of the boys were pretty well matched. Our coach, Mr. Moody
has done a hue job in his first year as a coach in teaching the boys the
fundamentals of basketball. VVe want to remember our manager, Lee Perkins.
VVith a mop he could really make the team-room shine. The Bearcats
promise to have a good team next year as they lose only four men. Golliher,
Garner, and Maple graduate' Mainer, a Sophomore, will be lost to the service
of Uncle Sam.

C Class Prophecy
In the summer of 1970 the class of 1945 of Galatia High School decided
to have a reunion, thinking it would be very interesting to see how far the class
members had scattered in 25 years.
Some fame from almost around the globe to attend.
At the air port who should step out of the plane but the former class
president, "Red" Maple, with thinning locks and a streak or two of grey but gay
as ever. He, after an honorable discharge from the Navy at the close of the war,
had gone into Air Express business in Central America and it was rumored that
he, still interested in athletics, owned a' large interest in a ball club there.
Hardly had that greeting been given till a helicopter settled and out came
Major Dale Bond who had continued in the air service all these many years. He
was accompanied by his Spanish looking wife. Their home 'was in Texas.
Someone overheard Dr. George Crawford say to them, "Hello, Bond!! Sure
glad you could come." Then turning to the others. Dr. Crawford explained.
"When Major and Mrs. Bond dropped in on us last week end, they feared
they couldn't come. Major Bond brought some mosquitoes for my research work."
Dr. Crawford has a huge research laboratory in South America. He has helped
to make Central Brazil more livable for the white man.
A stunning woman walked up and we rubbed our eyes and looked again.
Such Parisian clothes and hair dress!! It was Edna Devine-now the wife of a
French importer. She had for many years been internationally known for her
interior decorations and maintained her studios in New York.
We finally closed our gaping mouths, when she called out-"Well kids, say
something! ! !"
We all laughed at the familiar phrase and expected an introduction to the
two men following, but on closer view we recognizd Billy Ray Tate, who had
piloted the plane in which they came. and Raymond lordan, who was the
Tate and lordan owned a commerical hangar with 25 planes in which they
taxied passengers anywhere in the states. They lived in Brooklyn.
Wayman Garner, an engineer, in Yukon. told how they had brought his
gold out on dog sleds. He had traveled by train, auto, boat. and finally by
plane to attend the reunion.
The spectacled Professor, Dr. James Lester Golliher, L.D.D., Ph. D. with
a small goatee and cane. strolled up. He was still able to talk.

"Such scoundrels as are sent to college now!!! Would you believe it! They
write on walls. cut up the desks, and scratch Hoors. I never heard of such
injhiylglay. But I taught them something. Ha, Ha. Each desk had to be
refimshed by the rascal who marred it. XVas not that so, Miss Harris F" he asked
liis private secretary, a pert red head, who was none other than Betty Harris.
Betty had been his able assistant for many years.
A charming woman, meticulously groomed, walked toward us and set us
guessing again: but when she laughed, we knew it was Loudean Vinson, for
many years a wife a11d mother. She said she had 3 children, and each one was
really making his mark in the world.
Marv lidna Moore. also wife and mother, said, her oldest son had received
a quarter million dollars for his invention in flying family vehicles. A second son
had iust published a new novel.
jo Ann Moser had married a movie producer and done minor parts in
several pictures. She had also written some plays.
VVhen someone asked Harold Tate what he had been doing for the past
25 years, he said "Raising Peanuts." Then the boys who in 1945 were in Mrs.
Groves English class rushed him, for they were still hungry for peanuts. Harold
showed them the jumbo variety which were being used so extensively for plastics.
Don Lawrence was also farming, but he was specialing in Show Stock. His
cattle had won many national honors and a few international prizes. He said that
he had iust imported a Short Horn Bull that had cost 310.000,
Just then Laverne Rigsbv, related his dairy experience in Wisconsin. He
had 'invented" a new cheese, which was being exported to many other countries.
He had also put on the market a new homogenized milk. His dairy herd was
composed of 75 fine Holsteins.
The pretty, sparkling red head, Ruth Faye Bond, spoke up. "I wish you
would send me some milk to Chicago. l'm using sour milk, casein, and cream in
my Beauty Salon there. VVe have found milk treatments very beneficial to the
Here comes dear old Betty Hoover- ---1-1-. But she will have to
