CLASS WI LL'
The Senior Class, being of unsound mind, does hereby leave this last will
and testament, as a lasting depression plotted propagation by the under-
signed, to the members included.
Ava Anderson wills to Mamie Lee Abbott her front seat in room 207.
Orville Armstrong leaves his corny jokes to Glynn St. Clair, that junior who
has plenty of his own. Ray Brandon leaves his mechanical ability to Harold
Cockran, who is a whiz himself. Lois Brinkley bequeaths her charm for the
Navy to Lavon Carson, who is progressing nicely. Bill Burgess leaves his
ability to get along with Miss Davis to anyone who is foolish enough to think
that he does.
To Beth Brunson, Margaret Burke leaves her charming giggle. Charles
Ethridge willsjhis tackle ability to Bobby Lanier. Robert Dunn leaves his air
of a politician to Owen Free-? To those underclassmen who appreciate head-
aches, Betty Clifford leaves her ability to keep books. Helen Clouse bequeaths
her license to operate an lnforrnation Bureau to Mazine Curtis.
Gail Farmer wills her last-minute dashes to homeroom to all tardy juniors.
Carol Henry leaves her secret about dark beauty to Mary Jane Scarboro, who
isn't bad looking at all. Harold Henson wills his musical talent to Keith
Bauman. Wanda Huffman leaves her blond hair to Ann Guy, who isn't exact-
ly a brunette. To all those unsuspecting Sophomores, Patsey Johnson leaves
her good will. Loretta Lemon leaves her secret to "How to Make Friends" to
all Juniors who'll need it next year.
Verna Miller leaves her-no. She'll take it all, she says. Modene Parisher
bequeaths her likeable, quiet wciys to Charlotte Hutton, who already has nice
ones of her own. Dorothy Parker leaves her love for the C. A. P. to Ann
Broome. To H. C. Parker, Alfred Reynolds leaves his lung power for loud
howls. L. B. Sanders wills his popularity to Alton Newman, who is not a wall
flower. Joyce Singleton leaves her smile to Jo Dement. To Shirley Hutton,
Mary Louise Stout leaves her sweet ways. Jean Moore leaves her lease on
locker No. 99 to anyone who has enough nerve to open the door. Alvin
"Butch" Thrash leaves--, much to the sorrow of all the high school girls.
Doris Tynes leaves, period. Edith Welfl leaves her quiet personality to Ruth
Harbaugh. Robert Whitney wills his good grades in Geometry to those who'll
have the nerve to try it next year. Kenneth Yancey leaves his shoulders to
Billy Golden. Johnnie Ziober leaves his way with the girls to "Carlos" Gibbons,
who seems to be doing all right. Wallace Ryne leaves his curly locks to the
football team. Alline Acker leaves her likeable nature to Lettie Pearl Hanson.
To Ouida Parisher, Billie Ja Womack leaves Bobby Lanier. Jo Stephens leaves
behind her all the friends that she has made. Eugenia Weisinger leaves her
perfect conduct as an example for the lowly freshmen. Jerry Murphy leaves
her vig, vigor, and vitality to Dorothy Beaver, Bobby Stanley, and "Bo"
Bailess, to be divided equally because of excess.
As I gaze info my crystal ball, it is the year of l955. I see Betty Clifford
behind a desk, an executive of a large concern. She is conferring with Gail
Farmer who designs the exclusive clothes their firm produces. A smartly
dressed customer is Wanda Lee Huffman, private secretary to J. P. Morgan.
.I. P. has just had a conference with those famous engineers, William Bur-
gess, aeronautical engineer, L. B. Sanders, electrical engineer, Alvin Thrash,
geologist, and Charles Ethridge, oil tycoon. They are all on their way to their
exclusive bachelor club to meet Billy Frank Pyburn, that internationally
known artist. Pat Johnson, scoop reporter, has flashed the news of the return
from Europe of the Superintendent of the Mayo Clinic and winner of the
Nobel Prize for medicine, Dr. Jean Moore. Senator Robert Dunn is flooded
with pleas from the public to run for president. Margaret Burke and her six
children entertaining Carol Henry, Indian princess of Oklahoma. ls that, yes,
Lois Brinkley, wife of the Admiral of the United States Navy. Johnnie Ziober,
football coach of Wharton High School, meets his old friend Harold Henson,
football coach of Yale University, at the annual football coaches' convention
in Chicago. I see Edith Welfl, a Catholic Nun at St. Mary's in Dallas. Orville
Armstrong, Hollywood comedian, presents his own radio show, sponsored by
Pepsodent, with glamorous Alline Acker, guest star. Verna Miller is stewardess
on the Trans-Atlantic Rocket Plane piloted by Dorothy Parker. I see Eugenia
Weisinger, bookkeeper, and Loretta Lemon, secretary to Brown and Root, Inc.
Who is that! It is Alfred Reynolds, seaman first class, with a girl in every
port, that girl in Galena is Mary Louise Stout. Helen Clouse behind the in-
formation desk at Macy's Department Store. The little brunette beauty opera-
tor is Modene .Parisher. That mechanical wizard, Ray Brandon, is an assistant
to Professor Einstein. That little blonde housewife in the ruffled apron is Ava
Anderson. The President of the Women's Missionary Society, it is-Jo
Stephens! That Casanova, it's Wallace Ryan! Robert Whitney is a commercial
artist for Harper's Bazaar. That housewife baking bread is Doris Tynes. Joyce
Singleton is that stenographer with the engagement ring. Foreign Corre-
spondent Billie Jo Womack is flashing the latest news from Europe. I see-
Jerry Murphy, general manager of the Midway Theater.
I woke to look upon a face
Silent, white and cold.
Oh, friend, the agony I felt
Can never half be told.
We'd lived together but a year,
Too soon it seemed, to see
Those gentle hands outstretched and still
That toiled so much for me!
My awakening thoughts have been of one
Who now to sleep had dropped.
'Twas hard to realize, oh, friends,
My dollar watch had stopped.

Gail: "Well, I finally passed trig."
Betty C.: "HonestIy?"
Gail: "Don't be so inquisitive."
Miss Davis: "In what battle was General Custer
Bill Burgess: "His last battle."
Mrs. Moore: "Jean, I've been thinking of re-
