Today I dusted off the TOPPER for the year 1963-1964, and many memories
came back to me as I glanced at the pictures:
The new uniformed band playing "The Star-Spangled Banner"--Ronnie Medlin
carrying the ball on the option play- -Tony Waller driving in for a crip shot--Miss
Mason's bell- -Bobby Garfinkle shooting that left-handed push shot that hits the bot-
tom of the basket--the trophy case--Evaluation Week--smoke boiling out of the
restrooms - -counting the licks when someone was getting paddled- -greeting friends
getting off the bus--quietness of the library and study hall--crowded halls be-
tween classes--honors won in Math, Latin, and Forensic competition--Mr. Mc-
Donald's gentle voice rolling down the hall--rushing to class--an "A" in Miss
Mason's class--the first graduation--championship football jackets--Coach Mc-
Kinney's speeches--pep rallies--the Faculty and Men's Club Basketball Game--
the Strawberry Bowl--the Cumberland game--honor rolls--student body elections
Carioca Week--scratching on the intercom microphone before announcements--
exams--friends--and teachers that understood.

With a sincere feeling of regret over the fact that you
will be leaving this school, but also with a sense of pride in
your accomplishments while here, I pen my farewell message to
the first seniors in the history of our young school.
You are being graduated from high school during one of the
most critical and challenging periods of world history. Upon
your shoulders rest the hope and dreams of mankind. May you as
individuals demonstrate in your adulthood the same sense of un-
selfishness and farsightedness which so often you have given as
a group in helping shape traditions in building the history of
our new school.
As Joaquin Miller spoke of the Admiral in his poem, Columbus,
I hope you too can demonstrate his courage and strength:
nThen pale and worn, he kept his deck,
And peered through darkness, ah, that night
Of all dark nights! And then a speck
A light! A light! A light! A light!
It grew, a starlit flag unfurledl
It grew to be Time's burst of dawn.
He gained a world: he gave that world
Its grandest lesson: On! Sail on!n
Very sincerely yours,
