The 1944 Green and lVhire
The Senior Class of 1944
Year after year, we've trod the path
To and from our school.
We've learned our readin' and writing'
And learned to abide by the Golden Rule.
To all our teachers, our hearts go out
ln thanks for favors past.
Our hearts are sad. though eager,
As our school days are ending, at last.
Dennie Penn, president and leader,
Has edited this book with elegance,
While Betty Sheets, his assistant,
u Has aided with all her intelligence.
Harold manages our business-
He's tall, with dancing feet.
Thelma's tall and very smart-
With her none can compete.
Nelda rules the Pep Club,
Anddoes a swell job, too
lris was a football attendant
Though she came in this year new.
Martha Jo and Boots
Are friends of the truest blue.
And Chris and Jean and Louise
Are always together. too.
A couple walking down the halls
Holding hands, alas and alack!
Who else could that ever be
Bul our own Louise and Jack! .
Tommy, fullback for the Buffs.
Was high-point man in the C.K.C.,
And 'Kelly" Linn, our tackle,
Won a Johnson Tackle Trophy.
Jimmie and Bobbie, the twins,
Shine on the basketball floor.
Rubi graduated early
And was with us no more.
Concertos are a snap for her.
But "Stardust" is her best.
Virginia makes those black and whites
Jump at her request.
Engaged to a Pfc,
And with her share of good looks.
Evelyn is our class treasurer
And knows how to balance the books.
Another of our promised girls
Is Leona. short and light.
And also with a diamond ring,
ls the coquettish .Helen Fight.
The girl who's got a Navy man
ls Helen, with bright eyes and curls,
And Jane and Mary Caudill
Are some more of our "pin-up" girls.
Ben Ferguson charms his many girls
With his beautiful blond hair:
He Was cast in the Senior Play
As a doctor who wasn't all there!
Ford, Marie, and Cassity
Simply ooze with glamour,
And around them all the time
The handsomest boys do clamour.
She works in the oflice-
Tall and dark Marguerite.
And Martha Pribble in the lunchroom
Sells us good things to eat.
Jo Ann and Dick were welcomed
Into our Senior class-
He's going to be an air cadet
And she's our singing lass.
Then, last, but not least. there's Dolores
Who was cheerleader for the team.
She Was also football sponsor
And the Junior Carnival Queen.
Never to sit at Study Hall tables,
Or write.on the boards with lead,
Or shoot paperwads at your very best friend,
And hit the teacher instead.
Gosh. we really hate to leave our school-
Never to study 'neath this roof anymore.
Here's hoping the underclassmen will miss
The Senior Class of '44-I!
Dolores Cooke Wright.

The Buffaloessclosed their regular basketball season by de-
feating the Henry Clay Blue Devils, 33 to 31 for the first time
since 1934. Although the Buffs record doesn't appear striking,
it is the best season Georgetown has boasted in the last seven
years. ' '
The Buffaloes captured the 81st District tournament for the
second year in a row to earn a position in the llth Regional
tournament. We wish them the best of luck in it.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The local chapter of the National Honor Society was or-
ganized in 1935 with Principal C. R. Lisanby as faculty advisor.
In 1937 Miss Mary Viley was selected faculty adviser, a position
which she still holds.
Membership to this society is based on scholarship, leader-
ship. service, and character. The purpose of this organization is
to promote good scholarship, to create a desire to render service,
to encourage worthy leadership, and to stimulate the develop-
ment of character.
Only five per cent of the Junior Class is allowed to be 'mem-
bers of this organization. but all seniors with a B average and
having other qualifications may become members.

Gillaspie, is an organization composed of two class oflicers, the
president and secretary, of each class.
The purpose of the Student Council is to maintain a high
standard of citizenship in our high school, to render assistance
to the faculty in working out school problems. and to help in
planning projects and programs that will be of benefit to the
school and community- as a whole.
Some of the outstanding activities of the council this year
have been the planning of chapel programs. the execution of a
project of protecting property, both in the school and com-
munity, the maintenance of good order in the halls, and the shap-
ing of attitudes relative to the students' obligations and service
in Garth High School.
The officers of the Student Council elected by the members
of the organization are: Dennie Penn, president: Martha Gate-
wood, vice-president: Harold Sheehan, secretaryg and Louise
