Q- J1' W I V -Q W 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!

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 Queen, Edna Devine, was escorted by the King to her throne on the north side of the gym, where she was crowned and presented a bouquet of Yellow Roses by the King, Raymond Jordan. After thanking those present for the honor bestowed upon them they ascended the throne accompanied by their attendants: Loudean Vinson, Dale Bondg Ruth Faye Bond, James Ixnightg Dorothy Baker, Albert T rusgnaickg Ruby Wilson, Edward Damellg Betty Hoover. Charles Manierg and Wilma Williams, Perry Maple. Little Ernest Dean Wallace carried the roses and Sue Bush carried Miss Devine's train. All proceeds go into a General Fund for the High School. 2 ,airl- Hi-Y 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: Clean Speech Clean Living Clean Sportsmanship Clean Scholarship An induction ceremony built about these ideals is now in the making. First Aid 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 hard time learning to tie an L splint but finally succeeded. When they started transportation Mr. Moody chose three captains out of the class, Jackie Jacobs. Imogene' Allen and Billy Dixon. They soon learned their commands. Then each chose four people for their groups. They learned to cross obstacles and transport a patient carefully. Future Farmers of Hmerica The local F. F. A. chapter was organized in 1939. It has been maintained every year s'nce with the aid of the Agriculture Classes from which membership is drawn. This means that lt is a group of farm boys. This chapter mefts once at night and once during the day every month to transact regular business. Some of the activities of the F. F. A. are selling seeds, making rope, selling chances on a turkey at Thanksgiving, going on field trips, and crow killing contests. The purpose of these activities 1 to raise money for the annual vacation trip. This trip usually includes the Dixon Spring 'iexperiment station, and staying over night at nearby Lake Glendale. The chapter attended the oillcers training school at Carbondale. The chapter also sponsored a Wild Life 4-H Club. The names of the students taking agriculture during the school year are as follows: Charles- Clark, Argel Edwards, Dale Ellis, Harold Guye, Gordon I-Ilays, Marion Kent, Cloyd Pingleton, Joe Small, Harold Tate, James Tompson, Ralph Adklsson, Bobby Griggs, Maurice Hall, Charles Manier, Dean Phillips, Laverne Rlgsby, Joe Takacs, Vernon Vinson, Bob Adkisson, Wendell Bradley, Jackie Carter, James Edwards, John Edwia-rds, Glendal French, Eugene Hefner, Fred Hefner, Logan Libby, Jacob Milstead, Grant Mings, James Ritchey, James Smith, Jimmie Thompson, Bobby Upchurch, Tommy Upchurch and Dale Wigart. is , my Pep Club 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. Music 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. ,,. 2 4 1 17' 1k Q3 :V -, -My fi' v K1 va 3 43. 294 ..,L. J, c mm .fx , 'Qi I F1 gi -2515?

High Lights of Sport 1944-45 ' Basketball 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. CContinued on next page? ls f-- - gluing. . ' , ' I Q ' 'P 4 5 Basketball -Continued 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 48-25. 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 47-28 score. The Bearcats were waiting for McLeansboro and had their revenge in an exciting thriller and won 39-37. 5 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. fContinued on next pagej 1 vu November November November November November December December December December December January January January January January January January January February February December 10 18 22 25 28 1 8 15 16 19 5 6 12 19 26 27 30 31 9 16 Basketball Shawneetown Broughton . .

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 mechanic. ' 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.

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.

VVe have found milk treatments very beneficial to the skin." Here comes dear old Betty Hoover- ---1-1-. But she will have to tell you the rest of her nam.e.

' " Genevieve Barton- had been in India for several years doing research work among the Indian women. She had helped them to gain some freedom, but she admitted that she had never found out whv the Indian women didn't marry American men. Mary Margaret Small had specialized in raising Collie Sheep Dogs. The Govrnment of Australia had given her dogs great recognition for they were considered the best possible for the great sheep ranchers. Argentina bought dozens of clogs from her every year.
