History ofthe Closs of 1948 Wistfully relegating Old Mother Goose books to the attic and struggling with the problem of carrying our hundred and one books up Palmetto Street Hill, we-Janie, Beanie, Cynthea, Janice, Regina, C. J., Robin, Tussa, Burton, Kate, Nancy L., Patsy Mc., Sarah Jane, Hardwick, Ann N., Peggy, Marianne, Grace, Nancy Rogers, Josie, Sylvia, Pat, Winger, Sally, Jo, Ann W., Jessica, Joanie, and Tricia-timidly entered the sacred doors of G. P. S. for the first time in September, '42. With Sarah Jane as chief story-teller we learned a few bits of idle gossip to supplement our nursery rhymes, and McCallie boys in blue took the place of Little Boy Blue in our'minds. The twins became the best rats with their Arthur Murray presentation of a teacher's conga line headed by Misswlarnagin, and Jessica became our first dramatic star. At May Day Sally and Jo as trainbearers, Hardwick as page, and Kate and Sylvia as scepter and crown bearers stole the show, as we, giving up modesty for the present, gamboled on the green in our pajamas. The grown-up eighth grade class was enlarged by the addition of Harriet, Dee C., Adeline, Emeline, and Jo-Jo. In order to restore her shattered nerves Miss Tucker decided to omit the eighth grade play, in order to restore her shattered nerves Miss Daniels decided to pass all of us in sewing class after we had spent two years learning the intricacies of bastiug. Janie took the honors as class president and winner of the American history medal. Welcome additions appeared in the form of Danie, Gaenor, Nancy M., Mary Ellen, Pellen, Patsy, and Rita. The resounding noise of falling books and clouds of dust filled studyhall as Janie, Dee C., Sylvia, Nancy L., Jessica, Cynthea, Ann'W., Beanie, Marianne, Josie, C. J., and Frances carried out their tasks once every six months. The honor of being our first Honor Council representative went to Cynthea, and Beanie was the able class president. The Glee Club was noticeably improved by the addition of Jo-Jo, Frances, and Cynthea. Ann W. got in, too. Nancy M. and Patsy starred in the play. The gay, young sophomores welcomed into the fold Clarese, Caroline, Cagoon fpardon, Cahoonl, Dee F., Donna, and Polly, the Glee Club welcomed with open arms Janice, Burton, Ann N., Josie, Winger, and-most of all-Mary Stewart Becking Smith. Continuing its brilliant career, the basket- ball team climaxed a successful year by placing Liber on the varsity. "The Mad Breakfast" was produced with Josie and Dee F. vying for acting honors. Mrs. Clark and Miss Tucker became our beloved co-principals, and Street, the class president, perfected her raised eyebrow just in case she met Miss Tucker in geometry class the next year: With Jeanelle and Stanley as the only new members we gaily started our last year at 611 Palmetto Street. The first Static appeared under the direction of Miss Moyer, faculty adviser, Janie, business manager, Cynthea, Caboon fpardon, Cahoonj, C. J., Nancy L., Josie, Frances, and Ann W., accompanied by the slogan of "more gossip and a rabbit on every cover." New members of the operetta cast were Cahoon, Donna, Pellen, and Sylvia with Jo-Jo and Ann N. as the attractive smugglers, recognized thespians were Josie, Dee F., C. J., and Jessica. Cynthea continued her honorable career as Honor Council secretary with the able assistance of Frances. With the enviable record of no wins in five years the basketball team again placed Liber on the varsity. C. J., Dee C., and Josie took part in the McCallie play, and Josie completed a busy year as class president and our only star in the Baylor play. We again braved the laughs and snickers of our friends when we appeared in May Day as Indians-complete with feather, but we added a new step to jitterbug routines with our original dance. Janice, Dee F., Winger, and Rita served on the May Day costume committee. Janie, Ann W., and Dee C. received the titles of "class brains" as they won the Grace McCallie scholar- ship, Marian Stuart Parker Award, and Marian Crews Latin Award, respectively. Feeling like Mary with her little lamb, we entered the new G. P. S. followed by our horde of faithful rats. After a week of presents and tasty lunch-es we decided that we had the best rats ever, the rats decided that they would behave like human beings when they became lofty seniors. The widespr-ead belief in the Seniors' insanity increased by leaps and bounds when the Annual Board- Janie, Dee C., Cahoon, Liber, Janice, Josie, and Ann W.-reverted to their natural attire and behavior and serenaded with the plea to buy an Annual. The juniors prepared for their May Day a little early, but after many delays Anne Cahoon was acclaimed our lovely May Queen. Podie was unanimously elected "Most Active in School Affairs." Tricia and Danie shared honors, both, as members of the Dramatic Club, Tricia, as Dramatic Club president, Danie, as Red Cross president. New members of the Glee Club under the capable leadership of Pellen fpresidentj, Winger, Burton, and Janice were Jo, Sally, Harriet, Liber, C. J., Beanie, Janie, Danie, and Nancy M. Frances served as president of the Honor Council with Cynthea and Nancy M. as the other Senior members. So ends the history of th-e class of 1948-the first graduating class of the new G. P.
