History of the Class of 1946. Perhaps four of the happiest yet shortest years of our ives have just drawn to a close-years rich in memories hat will linger in our hearts forever. It is the purpose of his brief history to recall some of tne outstanding events If those memorable and unforgettable years. It was on the morning of August 31, 1942, that one' iundred and three bewildered little freshmen were called o attention in the gymnasium, to start their upward climb o the day now so near. To us it was the beginning of a new and heretofore unknown world. Such curious and infamiliar things as Hi-Y and Home Ec initiations proved o us that this was really that strange world. But it was ilso a world of war. Old grads and classmates went narching off, some never to return-to give their lives for :he freedom we now enjoy, and nationfwide rationing vas put into effect. On September 18 we witnessed our irst football game. We saw our team, the Blue Devils, Jutscore Bruceton and go on to win, 13f6. We had be- :ome a little more adjusted by the time class officers were :lected. Bill McCarley was chosen presidentg Don Ramsey, licefpresidentg Bobbye Humphreys, secretary, and M. C. Sompton, treasurer. The football queen was crowned the might of November 6 and freshman attendants were lanice Berry and Helen Chandler. We finished our exams December 23 and were given a holiday until January 4. About three weeks after we resumed our studies we suff fered a great loss in the burning of Cavitt Hall. It was Jn the evening of January 27, 1943, that we saw its gray, Jrick walls crumble to the earth, only to rest in the soft white snow. The rest of the year we managed very well without a cafeteria, even though lunches had to be brought from home. In February we were most ably represented it the InterfClass Contest by June Collins, Harry Neal, md June Nichols. School was dismissed May 14, and we were freshmen no longer. When we returned in September, '43, our number had dropped to eightyffour. My! The freshmen surely were small! Or at least that's the way they looked to us. To start the year off we had a new principal, Mr. Moody, ind four new teachers: Mesdames Outland and Moody, Miss Paschall, and Mr. Sidwell. Every Wednesday after' moon students were either learning the principles of first' iid or marching "militarily" to the cadence of an instrucf :or for one or the other was required of all. Once more ave elected Bill as our president. Other officers were Bob Vaughn, vicefpresidentg Bobbye Humphreys, secretary, md M. C. Compton, treasurer. To attend the football queen we again chose Janice Berry and Helen Chandler. Dur football team had a good season that year, winning seven of its ten games. Murray was among its victims, zoo. We were really proud of our basketball teams that rear also. At the regional playfoff the girls defeated 3yars-Hall of Covington to become West Tennessee cham' aions, while the boys were nosed out by South Side. June Sollins won second place in humorous reading in the fnter-Class Contest. Other black and gold representatives were Rozanne Clark and Billy Jobe. A second year was behind us and, as sophomores, our mental worries were over. Climbing the Hill as juniors fand upperclassmenj we were still fewer, to be exact 74. We again had a new principal, Mr. Pitner, who had formerly held a position in the mathematics department. We also welcomed back Mr. jelks as athletic coach. Class leaders were named and they were as follows: Bob Vaughn, president, Pat Brisendine, vice-president, june Nichols, secretary, and M. C. Compton, treasurer. Our football team again had an unusually successful season. Only once did the Blue Devils of '44 taste defeat. Our attendants to the football queen were Jean Allen and Helen Chandler. On December 12, at the football banquet, Bob Vaughn was elected captain, and Virgil Wall, alternate captain. The boys' basketball team was undoubtedly the best Grove has ever produced. Final rankings placed it fifth in the state. Three members of our class were on the first team- Stanley Cooper, Jimmy Haywood, and Bob Vaughn. And speaking of classmates, Rozanne Clark, Bob Vaughn, and Don Ramsey were elected to the National Honor Society. Junior members of the Quill and Scroll were Helen Chandler, Rozanne Clark, Mary Ashley Davis, june Nichols, and Myrle Augusta Oliver. A boxing team was organized by Coach Jelks and staged two meets with Union City. Class talent really came to the fore' front in the Inter-Class Contest, for June Collins and June Nichols took highest honors. The middle of May soon came and vacation was again at hand. Ah, seniors at last! But only sixty of our original one hundred and three were still together. New names on the faculty were Mrs. McCullar and Misses Bryant and Edenton. Bob Vaughn was chosen to fill the class presidency for a second year. Also given official positions were june Nichols, Helen Chandler, Jimmy Haywood, and Don Ramsey. Editors of our two publications, "The Tower" and 'lThe Comet," were Myrle Oliver and Rozanne Clark respectively. The football team was vicf torious in most of its games, winning eight and losing two by very close margins. Murray was defeated 6-0 in the annual TurkeyfDay tilt and the Williams Trophy was once more within Grove's walls. Football queen for 1945 was Pat Brisendine. Helen Chandler, serving her fourth year, and Jean Allen, serving her second year, were the senior attendants. Bob Vaughn was voted outstanding player and received the Fisk Award, besides being recog' nized in All-State selections. Among tne twentyftwo lettermen were the following seniors: Vaughn, Wall, Cooper, Swayne, Peebles, Kennon, and Moody. The shipment of class rings was delayed and they were not received until after Christmas. Invitations were ordered in January and graduation exercises were held May 16. Thus we come to the close of another chapter of our lives - a chapter that we will always remember. We are grateful to the teachers who have guided us through these four years and pray that the Grove spirit will remain with us forever. -Don Ramsey 25
