Mrs. Throgmorton was chosen sponsor of the Senior class, and we highly appreciate her efforts in helping to make this annual 'a success. Other than her work on the Galatian, Mrs. Throg- morton has this year sponsored our school newspaper, the Bearcat Journal, and has had supervision of the library and sixteen student librarians. Mrs. Throgmorton was born at Creal Springs, Illinois on January 16, 1907. She attended S. I. U. and has done extension work with the University of Illinois. She re- ceived her B. E.

From the first times of which we know anything, considerable attention was given by primitive man to self-adornment. As man progressed from his extreme simplicity, and great industrial changes took place, new things, for which education was to be given, arose. Education is the means by which complex problems of civilization are solved. Among the first American institution was the system of schools and as an institution it easily acquired a position in the first rank of our democratic life. Probably no other institution has contributed more to the building, the understandings of the principles of demcoracy than this system of schools. The Galatia High School was only a three year school from 1916 to 1931 with the exception of 1919, 1920, and 1921. Then from 1931 up to the present time it has continued the fourth year classs. The principals from 1916 up to now are as follows: Stierwalt, Hood, Echols, Massey, Turnbaugh, Carter, Buford, Knibbs, Black, Elliott, Patrick, Echols, Moody, and Mr. Atkinson who has been at Galatia for the past three years.

Class Voyage It was the fourth day of September, 1944, a calm, peaceful, Autumnal day, radiant with the sunshine of hope, cheer, and joyous promise, that the good ship, Galatia Community High School, stood at anchor at the wharf of a new school year. It was the samei old ship that had carried many passengers to the safe harbor in the Land of Great Wisdom, but this day was a gala day in its history. Many people gazed upon it in wonder as they watchedi the forty-two beautiful and charming young ladies and the thirty-six bold and dashing young gentlemen as they so happily stepped aboard, for it was rumored that they were about to set sail over new- and untried waters in a quest for "The Fountain of Perfect Understanding". When we were all aboard we began to set the ship in order. We were informed by older passengers that our journey was not to be one over one big sea. In reality it was over four smaller seas, each growing in size as We passed from one to the other. Our course over the first and smallest of the seas was charted for us by Mary Fern Smith. During this year, 1944-45, Mr. Harold Moody held the position of helmsman. We veered from the main course of our journey and stopped at "Dog Patch Island". Here we had a happy time. Those from our group to win recognition at the "Dog Patch" party were Pat Jackson and Don Raley, Jim Smith and Betty Perdue. Farther on, into the depth of this sea, we were attracted by some beautiful Boston ivy plants. We purchased some of these to add to the beauty of our ship, G. C. H. S. Some of our boys became interested in basketball. We encouraged Carl Griffiths, Gratton Karnes, Amos Kent, and Don Raley, for we all enjoyed their pastime. A few of our passengers became sea sick. A number were tempted to throw up algebra and other disagreeable dishes. Some even wanted to toss their best belongings overboard in times of rough sea. But we were assured by our stowardess, Jean Jones, and first-aid workers, Dcn Raiey and Billy Jordon, that it would be necessary to digest these "indigestibles" over and over again until they were perfectly assimilated. And thus we came to the cmd -of the Freshman Sea. With careful steering we soon found our course upon the second sea. The crew of officers was changed. To pilot our ship over this sea, we chose Billy Jordon, Amos Kent, Phyllis Weaver, and Bernadine Brown. Storms were not so frequent upon this Sophomore Sea. Neither did so many cases of seasickness develop. Yet, at the Island of Indifference, a number of our passengers got off the ship and did not continue the journey with us. As Sophomores there were fifty-two who finished that journey. Our helmsman was Mr. S. N. Atkinson. fContinued on next pagel Class Voyage Peering into space and gazing over the waters, we were able to catch glances of a seemingly beautiful body of water, known as the Junior Sea. We eagerly anticipated entrance upon it. As we prepared for the ordeal, reorganization was necessary. Mr. Lester Gill was made our pilot. Apprentice seamen were selected to do the bidding of the passengers and Mr. Gill. After careful consideration, the responsibilities of this voyage were entrusted to Delmond Weir, Carl Griffiths, Phyllis Weaver, and Amos Kent. Our voyage was successful and time passed quickly. But again some of our number had been attracted by sights seen along the way. Islands of Leisure: had attracted them. Not all the passengers stayed with us until we were ready to enter the last and largest of these bodies of water, the Senior Sea. The remaining forty of the original sevemty-eight were willing to embark upon this sea. One, having seen the folly of the unfinished, came to travel with us. We were happy to wel-come her as we sailed the Senior Sea. To steer our ship through a safe journey, we chose Mrs. Edith Throgmorton. She was to have-the help of such able officers as Delmond Weir, Amos Kent, Hazel Hedges, and Betty Perdue. VVe have kept our friends 'informed of our dfoings through the Bearcat Journal. Our time has been well filled. First there was the Tea Party. Raising funds for the "Galatian", a complete log of our dear old ship, G. C. H. S., was a long, drawn-out piece of business. Billy Griffin and Ralph Brownimanaged this for us. Athletics required the attention of many of our young men, as well as some of the young ladies. The best and most vital history of anything is never given t world. So it must be with the class of 1948! 'W It has been a most wonderful voyage. We have not faced any gale which we have not been able to withstand. The tides of our averages have continued to rise and fall. The billows of examinations have some times tried to overwhelm us, but none of them succeeded. We have been able to pay the price in good hard work for every part of this passage. Therefore, let us say with Byron: "Roll on, thou deep and dark blue ocean, roll! Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee 'in vain!" But not in vain the class of 1948! We will go on writing new logs of greater adventure, for while the Voyage of High School Life is at an end, the Voyage of Real Life is just now and here at its triumphant commencement!

The School Carnival was a big event for the Sophomores. From this group was elected both King and Queen, namely, J. W. Pulliam and Wilma Edwards. As 1947 rolled around and the class enrolled as "Jolly Juniors", the number had dropped slighty again. This time there were 41 in the class. Soon after they got their bearings, they met and elected the following class officers: President .................... Johnnie Braden Vice President .... .. . Philip Weaver Secretary ....... Ronald Spears Treasurer ............................ Jack Adams Bookkeeper .......................... Betty Parks Mr. Wendell Phillips was chosen as sponsor.

The game was in Carrier Mills' favor in the first two quarters, 29 to 28. Galatia came though with a driving finish to win over Carrier Mills 38 to 36. On the second night of the tournament, Galatia met Golconda whom they had previously beaten twice in a row. Galatia pulled into the lead at the third quarter again, after the first tied, 17 to 17. The Bearcats won by a seven point margin, 43 to 36. On the last night of the tournament, the Galatia Bearcats met the Vienna five for the championship game. Galatia jumped off at the first quarter with a 12 to 8 lead, and were ahead at half-time, 22 to 20. Both teams kept up their pace and the Bearcats led at the third quarter, 36 to 34. In the fourth quarter the Bearcats played heads-up ball, but Vienna hit from all spots of the floor and won a thrilling contest which beat Coach Phillip's crew for the championship 46 to 45. The Bearcats are leading the conference with 8 wins and one loss with three more games to be played. Equality Invitational Tournament In the second game of the Equality Invitational Tournament, the Bearcats defeated Cra-b Orchard 63 to 39. This victory gave the Cats a chance to play in the semi-finals against Ridgeway who defeated Enfield in the first game. The Bearcats had a tough time getting by Ridgeway with the score of 30 to 28 in a double over-time. It was a low scoring game because the Ridgeway five wore trying to stop the Galat'a fast break, by holding the ball. With this victory added to their string, they entered the. finals against Carrier Mills, who defeated Cave-In-Rock. ' The Galatia five experienced a different brand of ball in the game against Carrier Mills, whom they had defeated earlier in the season by 33 points. It was also a low scoring game with the score at the half being 2 to 2 and the final score 20 to 17, with Carrier Mills being the victor. Carrier Mills stalled the ball most of the first quarter and all of the second quarter with their objective being to break up the zone defense of the Bearcats. first Jin Basketball Hays and Mach ffzeer fenders fhilzys Ydaaverflfifeify kfdue -Beige Uffd -James gdfkdfy Eafkafiall Bays , lmuk, J?1azuzgef.s',.9 Cleef .L'eaa'er.s' Softball Softball practice began on the first day of school with infield and outfield drills.

The boys P. E. class instructor was Mr. Phillips, the coach. During the early fall and spring days, classes were held on the playground every Monday and Wednesday. They played such games as volleyball, softball, and basketball. Although there were many other games and exercises, these were the three major ones for outdoor activity. During the winter months the boys played in the gymnasium. In class periods, the instructor tried to improve the playing of games, as well as sportsmanship. The boys chose teams and played a few basket- ball games. The coach divided the boys into four groups and chose a team from each group to play against the other group. This furnished activity in which all the class was interested. Girls Kofi dal! Klan' and Teacher 51,245 'Wiley Ball fic!! aaa' 272acbzz' Hay! ff 5, Ula!! Future Farmers oi America The Galatia F. F.

First Aid First Aid is the treatment given to an injured person before the doctor arrives. The aim of First Aid is not to cure but to prevent the injury from becoming worse. First Aid is given as an addition to the health class and approxi- mately six weeks are spent in the study and practice of First Aid. First Aid is not a subject to be lightly passed over, but should be required of every person graduating from school. It is not known how many lives could be saved or how many permanent injuries could be prevented if every person had a working knowledge of First Aid. The class this year has studied the first steps in caring for fractures, common ailments and conditions due to accidents. We feel we have accomplished much by taking this course.

The parade of floats, which was about three miles long, depicted Saline County's history of the past one hundred years. The second day, which was October 24, all the contests were held at the Saline County fair ground. Some of the G. C. H. S. teachers were participants of the bearded contest. On Saturday, the last day, there was a parade of the floats. The parade started in Galatia at the old tobacco barn and,went to all the high points of interest in Saline County, then back to the fair ground in Harris- burg about one o'clock that afternoon. The Peabody Miners had a float which had the title of "Peg O' My Heart". There were three girls from Galatia High School who rode this float, namely, Frances Blackburn, Betty Perdue, and Betty Devine. The float from Galatia Community High School won second place. This float was made by Mr. J. B. Bond's agricultural class and was of a colonial agriculture scene. Ten girls from the high school were in the Pageant. They were Mary Smith, Margie Williams, Phyllis Weaver, Mary Lou Cowgur, Pat Jackson, Hazel Hedges, Betty Perdue, Jean Jones, Betty Maple, and Mary Eatherly.

Though it has been ten years, it seems only yesterday that we sat together in Annual Staff conference with other Seniors and Mrs. Throgmorton. When you have finished your spring shearing of those Wyoming sheep, I am happily anticipating your visit to my Michigan Duck Farm. You know, Jim, I received a very interesting copy of the Bearcat Journal the other day. I'm sure you remember Betty Abney who sent it to me. She is teaching in G. C. H. S. and sponsorfng the Senior class this year. Several pages of the Journal were given over to the "Where- Abouts of Seniors of 1948". Pauline Brown is employed as a traveling sales lady for a large New York Clothing House. She is really "vacationing" as she earns. After leaving high school Jane Rose Brown took up the study of medicine. She has a new medicine which is recommended for anything from an eye disease to Athlete's Foot. Ralph Brown has a Hudson garage in Galatia. You know he spent a lot of time in the Work Shop with Mr. Bond. I always thought Ralph would be a farmer. Frances Blackburn has gone to Switzerland. After making a study of the Swiss art of wood carving, she expects to return to the Ozark region of Missouri. There she and her husband will operate a Novelty Shop, specializing in novelties of hand carved wood. Viola Bryant and her husband have a karakul ranch in California. I'd cgrtainly like to have a Persian lamb coat made from a lamb on that ranc I One of our group has gone into the movies. Guess? It is Mary Lou Cowgur. Her first picture is to be released next month. Mary Fern Smith and Betty Maple are opera singers. They are touring the states together. Betty Devine and husband have taken up a home-stcad in Alaska. Donald Dunning married Eva Combs, the girl of his high school days. They live in Galatia and are the proprietors of a corner grocery. M Mary Eatherly went to Florida. She will probably become a Spanish frs. Geneva Fisher is teaching in a Business Scho-Cl in St. Louis, Mo. Bill Fletcher is owner and manager of the Fletcher Wholesale Company in Kansas City. Betty Golliher is a nurse, Working with D-octor Delmond Weir. They are also scientists and are experimenting with a particular vitamin, which when perfected, is supposed to cause one to retain youth for as much as one hundred fifty years. And would you believe it? Billy Griffin is a lawyer. I always knew though, that he had several approaches to the truth. CContinued on next pagel .. . vdwup- -.X--A 4' - we- f--..-n ..-1-5-.. 3 Fila, ' Class Prophecy Carl Griffiths has retained his love for sports. He is a coach in one of the eastern colleges. Hazel Hedges lives with her husband on a farm near Thompsonville. They have two lovely children. And, what is more, they have two productive oil wells on their farm! Pat Jackson is the society editor of a new magazine. I believe the name of it is "Spring Breezes". The children of Mexico City are fortunate to have Jean Jones among them as a social worker. She is employed by the Mexican government. Gratton Karns, Amos Kent, and James Thompson have formed the Triple Corporation. They manufacture men's ties, using soybeans and sour milk. ' The minister in our class is Harold Kielhcrn. He has charge of a large church in Atlanta, Georgia. Logan Libby and Richard Wigart have taken up magic. Logan is president of the Magicians Union, and Richard is his secretary. I wonder how many rabbits they have found in their hats! Charlene Mitchell and Doris Talkington own and operate a bakery. Their specialty is apple pie. Soon after graduation, Eugene Mott went to Texas. He is a senator in that state and also editor of one of Houston's large newspapers. Betty Perdue certainly took advantage of her training on the "Galatian" staff. She is becoming a well known writer. Her latest book is "Sunshine and Shadows". Mary Pingleton is employed as a dietician by the American Medical Society. She is now stationed at Costa Rica studying the rights and wrongs in the diets of the natives. Ellen Ray is quite well known for her comic strip, now carried by the leading newspaper of Richmond, Virginia. Virginia Rice and her husband own a skating rink in Galatia. It is a favorite place for the G. C. H. S. students to spend their leisure time. I Bob and Dale Upchurch are outstanding horticulturists. By experimentation and scientific methods, the deserts will now become "garden spots" of the world. The new plant foods, resulting from their experimental workjwill improve the w-orld's food supply. A And who is the "skiing star" of Sun Valley, Idaho? None other than Phyllis Weaver. Although Phyllis entered journalism, she has time for her favorite sport. Margie Williams travels for Look Magazine. Recently she returned from South America where she had gone to get some picture material on Indian life in the Andes. But I must not make this letter too long. And anyway, I expect to see you soon. f ' ' Lovingiy, Rose-mary Triplett ., a f D. A. H. Award Betty June Perdue was chosen by the faculty members and the student body for the honor of receiving the D. A. R. Good Citizenship award. The award is given annually by the Daughters of the American Revolution to Senior girls who have been found to excel in the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. The project's aim is to build youthful character and to call attention to those qualities which are desirable in good citizenship. Phyllis Ann Weaver, Betty Abney, Lou Ellen Ray, Hazel Hedges, Virginia Rice and Rosemary Triplett were also candidates for the award. Girls selected as Good Citizens were this year entertained at the state conference of D. A. R. which met in Peoria in March. From this group on girl was chosen Illinois Pilgrim. The winning Pilgrims from the 48 states, as guests of the National Society, shared a pilgrimage of inspiration, education and pleasure to the Continental Congress at Washington, D.

Cutting so rapidly loose from life, and finding so many things of such gigantic proportions to be attended to before the end should come upon her, realizing at the same time that she had no longer any time left to spend in the cultivating of her own virtues, she did, collectively and individually deem it best to distribute these virtues with her own hands to those friends whose needs require them. Owing to the flighty condition of her brain, and the unusual dis- turbance in its gray matter, she begs us to state for her that she may quite possibly have been mistaken in her inventory, but such things as she thinks she has, sfhe hereby gives into your possession, praying that you will accept them as a sacred trust from one who has gone before.
