In the midst of the debris on a blackened street in the ruins
of a beautiful city in Italy, on the barren tundra-covered cliffs
of the Aleutians, in the malaria-infested jungles of a tropical
island in the Pacific, or on maneuvers in West Tennesseee-
somewhere, on many of the great battlefields ot this War,
American boys are fighting for us. They are there because
they are willing, if necessary, to give their lives in order that
we, here in Harriman High School, may continue our education.
To those boys who were members of our class last year,
but have since become members of our armed forces, or have
answered our country's call for farmers4WE PAY TRIBUTE.

EPTE BER, 1940 -4 MAY, 1944
'We need no introduction: our story needs no prologue for after we came, we made
history. We-the freshmen of 1941, the seniors of 1944.
On September 3, 1940, ninety-three boys and girls gathered in the H. H. S. building and,
as is traditional, every one of us felt that we could not possibly learn more than we knew al-
ready. Since we were here to make history, not just to study it, we began by winning the
prize for the best fire prevention poster. With the motto, "Find a way or make one," we found
a way to make money. First we started collecting tablet backs, and on Valentine's Day we
operated a market in town.
A little less green and a little more sophisticated, the sophomores began the second
chapter of their history in September, 1941. This time the motto, "Rowing, not Drifting," aided
us in getting started. ln November we decided to collect scrap paper as our special project
for the remainder of the year. The class was divided into two groups for a contest. The group
paying their class dues first was to be given a party by the losers. Remember what fun we
had? It was in our sophomore year, too, that we co-operated with the other classes in buy-
ing a War Bond for the school. The high-light of this year, socially speaking, was our hike
to the reservoir in March.
"Step it up and gol" Well, we did. Even though Uncle Sam had called several of our
boys and others had moved, we started our third chapter in a big way. First we contributed
to the new song books. Then we sold football schedules. Later-on October 14, 1942, we se-
lected our class rings. Oh, Happy Days! Can we wait? We also sold Christmas cards and
stationery. ln December we enjoyed a Christmas party. Each person received a gift from
February 5, remember that wonderful night? lt was the date of our Iunior-Senior ban-
quet, which we held early because of the beginning of a long series of food-rationing. The
banquet was followed by a dance which was the climax to all our weeks of preparation. For
the annual Iunior Class Play we presented "lt Happened Next Tuesday." The admission
charged to this super-duper play was a War Stamp or Bond. Total sales amounted to
34,772.00 Thursday, May 13, most of the Iolly Iuniors went to Crossville for a picnic. No
swimming was allowed, but many of us rented boats and went boating.
At last! The year of all years-the one in which we reign supreme in all our glory
texcept when the faculty deflate our egol. We began the term with five new girls and later
welcomed a new boy tsomething rare these daysl.
Beautiful! Superb! Gorgeous! What? Our class rings, of course. Only a senior will
ever know how thrilling that moment can be. Without further delay we ordered our cards
and invitations. Because of "labor shortage" we discovered that we couldn't have both the
Arrow.and the Hi-Lite. so the seniors voted to have the Arrow. To improve our sozial atmos-
phere we went to Knoxville for dinner and a show. A few nights later three of our Mead-o-
Mite friends invited us to a picnic in the baseball park.
As seniors always take the lead in worthwhile things, we, as seniors, participated
1002 in the lunior Red Cross and the War Fund Drives. ln order to show our loyalty to
our school and team we made and sold school colors at all of the home football games,
and sold eats and drinks at the basketball games. "If you want a treat of something good to
eat!" is the song that should have been sung at the Alumni Banquet this year. The seniors
were invited and thoroughly enjoyed the supper and the floor show that followed.
Even though our class has been noted all through school for ability of each person
to express his own opinion and fight for it, these same students have shown fine cooperation
with each other and the faculty in undertakings of importance. We have had representatives
in almost every extra-curricular activity offered and we have reason to be proud of our class
as a whole-the class of 1944.
