HUMES i-HGH SCHOGI.
To the boys and girls ot the class ot 1944
who have gone, and to those Who will go
into the service of their country, the Staff
affectionately dedicates the 1944 SENIOR
"They have gone from the city, and with
them spring has gone trorn the year".
MR. D. M. HILLIARD. PRINCIPAL
TI-tE PFQIIXICIPAIJS MESSAGE
The message from Humes to the Seniors this year is presented by one
who labored in the Memphis City Schools almost seventy years ago.
"The history of the past holds up to our view, if we will count through
all ages, a multitude of the truly great. All of these have arisen through
one single path, the only path. ln this path lie self-culture, self-support and
love of right, knowledge, and mental action. These things with all other
kinds of culture are developed within, they spring from a fountain whose
source is within the temple of the soul, made inaccessible to all direct
external power, in the child and man alike. The mental structure called
education that is to be erected in this secluded place is a life work. lt will be
beautiful or ugly, lofty or insignificant, strong or weak, solely according to
the character and perseverance of the voluntary effort of the individual soul
that dwells therein. Neither love nor pity can directly raise one straw or
move a dust of the balance to aid. All that the teachers can do is to stand
Without and with wise words and pure example guide and encourage. The
Creator Himself encroaches not upon the sacred precincts. However much,
therefore of labor and skill may be demanded in the life of the teacher, all
may be reduced to two single objects or aims: -
First, to present to the pupil proper and adequate inducements, and
second, to present proper and sufficient guides to mental action. There can
scarcely be a more self-evident proposition to the human mind than that the
pupil should be so instructed that he will need less and less of these
exterior inducements and guards as he advances and become more and
more self-sustaining until at length throughout the work of God and man,
without a special teacher, the soul alone shall find sufficient guides, The
work of the teacher should gradually cease, but the building within should
go on forever."

SENICDR CLASS HISTCDRY
The class of '44. lust another graduating class.
Although this is not the first class to graduate during
this world conflict, it is the first real war class.
For several reasons it can be called that. First, its
number has been decreased greatly, second, every
boy and many girls are planning to go into the United
States Service, a number of boys have already been
drafted from the classroom.
Here is a class that has gone through all the
years of school together. They've looked forward to
the parties, dances, class-days, and what goes to
make up a senior school year in normal times. But,
just when these dreams were about to be realized,
the call to war took many members of the class. lt
also took away many of the things that have always
symbolized a senior year. The purpose of the class
was turned from one of personal desires and likes,
and turned toward one of unified purpose to do its
part individually and collectively, to get the war over,
and to get the old world straightened out, so that the
boys and girls could step into a peaceful and promis-
The class of '44 is really two classes in one. ln
lune of '43 twenty members of this class began their
senior year, by taking the first half of the work at
Tech High in the summer school. This summer session
was conducted to enable the boys going to war to
obtain their diplomas before leavingg the class gradu-
ated at the half-way mark in Ianuary '44.
All the boys in the class expect to be drafted im-
mediately, some have already gone, some have pass-
ed the Army Specialized Test, and may go to college
-courtesy Uncle Sam.
The other members of the class began their year
in September, and graduated at the regular time in
Two members of the class are foreign born, Leah
Rosenberg, in Wyshkow, Poland, and Herman Kap-
lan, in Lithuania.

SEIXIIGR CLASS PRGPHECY
The year 1950 found me, Ioyce Nicholas, busily
packing my exclusive wardrobe fstyled by my own
shop-Nikki's, New Yorkl, preparing for my ocean
cruise around the world. That awful World War of
1938-1944 was just a dark terrible thing of the past,
and life in a new world was before us.
My packing was interrupted by the ring of the
telephone. lt proved to be Colleen Coffey, successful
editor of the "New York Times," calling to find out
what was new. l quickly told her of my plans to
.travel around the world, and she replied that she
would tell her publicity editor, Esther Wainman, to
headline it on the front page. She gave me a bit of
news, too, from "Iackie's Iuicy Gossip Column," writ-
ten by I. Kaplan. lt seemed that Lorraine Shippman,
after obtaining a divorce from her fifth husband, was
engaged to her old schoolmate, Iohnny Cassidy.
Thanking each other heartily, we hung up.
Our call had been put through by Clarice Walker,
now chief operator of the Bell Telephone Company.
l-fer predecessor she informed me, was Virginia Force.
Thrilled at finding the whereabouts of some of my
old schoolmates of 1944, l called lean McCullough,
the Helen Hayes of this day, and Freda Iolly, woman
governor of New York State, who were going with me
on my trip. lean informed me that the two Betty lean
Houstons had finally gotten together as barmaids in
the l-lotel Holt fowned by Clarence himselfl, where
Iean was staying at the time.
Freda told me that she had just appointed Rubye
Graham as her chief adviser.
They both explained that they would hurry over
to my hotel, as the plane to Florida, where we caught
the Pan-American Clipper for South America, our first
stop, left in an hour.
Once together, we piled into a cab and headed
for the airport. We were surprised to find that our cab-
driver was none other than Morris Maxey. Turning on
the radio, we heard the news, broadcast by that
brilliant commentator of the day, Harold Webber. A
special bulletin was issued to the effect that Helen
all If 'fb
Gipson, leading debutante, was seen at Dreamland
Gardens, dancing with that notorious gentleman gang-
ster, Iohn fSpeedJ Ioyce. Tiring of the news, we tuned
in to the Quiz Kids program, mceed by that walking
encyclopedia, Mary Emma Kelly. Also on the program
was Lawrence Roberts, Ir., smart protege, and we
recognized him to be the son of our old school chum.
Switching the dials, we heard a familiar voice beat-
ing out the jive with Dorothy Crawfords All-Girl
Orchestra. We discovered the voice to be that of Leah
McGee. Soon bored with music, we found a soap-
opera, and recognized the voices of Mary Kolivas and
Mike Strauss, acting in "lohn's Fifth Wife," or "Shoot
us that we
we arrived at the airport, and tipping
usual nickel, we were greeted by the
on the plane, Maxine Scott. She assured
would have a safe trip, as the pilot was
lack Williams, who, incidentally owned the airlines.
Arriving in Florida after a safe trip, we immedi-
ately headed for the Pan-American Airlines, where the
clipper was waiting for us. We were presented with a
huge box of candy from the President of the United
States, Ioe Fitzgerald, by his personal secretary, Gloria
Saller fwho always made A+ in shorthandl. We
noticed that the box was from Bailey and Stover's
and we realized that that organization was headed
by Ioyce Bailey, who fixed our box of candy especially
Our first stop was Mexico, and we quickly plan-
ned an exciting stay there. The first day we took in
the bull-fights and were amazed to find that the fear-
less, dashing figure in the ring with the bull was
Thomas McKenzie. From there we took in a fiesta, and
found Myrtle Levitch selling fancy Mexican souvenirs,
while Rosalie Bozof entertained us by swinging the
the Mexican hat dance. Reclining lazily in his dia-
mond-studded, gold easy chair was Stanley Pike, hav-
ing made a fortune on the nylon hose business in
Mexico during World War ll.
In one of the most famous restaurants, we asked
for one of its well-known "hot Mexican dishes." We
were immediately presented with Mexico's favorite
dish, losephine Coyle. From there we came across a
big crowd gathered around two beat-up bloody
roosters, and found it to be a cock-fight, one of the
most exciting sports in Mexico. Thewinning bird be-
longed to loe Reagan, and the battered one to Griffin
Gregory. Under a sombrero, snoring lazily in the
Mexican sun, we found Billie Bradshaw. Strolling in
the beautiful sunken garden, we found lane Powera
and Cordie Hughes. They seemed to know what a
few of the graduates of IQ44 were doing and we
listened eagerly. It seemed that Margaret Simi and
her three little Maggies' had come down for a visit
Walter Higdon, touring South America with his great
orations, h,ad won fame in Mexico.
From Mexico, we iourneyed southward to Brazil.
Our guide proved to be our old school churn, I. B.
Crain, who we knew would know the right places to
take us. We took in all the night clubs, and were
astonished to find that the popular Brazilian bomb-
shell was Iuanita Davis. In other places, we found
the Bartee Sisters, Ruth and Verna Mae, wowing
everybody with their dancing. At one place, Baucum's
Bar for Browsing Brazilians, owned by Iimmy himself,
we discovered Betty Gualtney. Max Saller's Scfntillat-
ing Sextette of Saxes provided the music.
After winding up our sight-seeing tour of Brazil,
we thanked I. B. heartily, and departed on a fast
plane for Argentina. While on the plane, we saw
Norma Breeden, who told us she was now Spanish
interpreter for a large South American firm. We wish-
ed her luck and started on our trip through Argentina
Roping cattle on a large Argentine ranch we found
three of our former class-mates, Manuel Brown, Gil-
bert Austin, and Eugene Turner. The famous fan-
dancer of Argentine turned out to be Norma Lewis,
that sweater girl of Humes High. Lnigering only a
while in Argentine, we hopped over to Chile for a
We arrived just in time for their annual holiday
festival. We were surprised to find some of the girls
we had graduated with, participating in many of its
activities. Gloria Ladd and Thelma Carter entertained
with many Chilean songs, while Marjorie Martin and
Margaret Holt yelled "Pop corn, peanuts, candy!"
After two busy days in Chile, we said Adios Amigos
to South America and left for our tour of Europe.
The huge ocean liner stopped along the coast of
Africa. While there we heard of the great Reverend
lack Slater, doing his missionary work in darkest
We first arrived in England, planning to stay for
a good while. During the first day we visited the great
Oxford College, and found that Herman Kaplan had
completed his entire college course in one year and
I6 days, and was now military attache to seven dif-
ferent countries, being able to speak their languages
from childhood. Being very proud of Herman we
learned that Tilford Flowers was coaching cricket at
Oxford. Furthering his aeronautic engineering educa-
tion at Oxford we also found Charles Fite. The next
day found us admiring the work of another former
student, Earline Wright, who had become world-
famous through her invention of a new radio, now on
display in the great English museum. While visiting
England's famous Cambridge Library, we came across
ing over huge volumes of intellectual books, explain
ing his research on his theory of animalistic elements.
That night we went to a famous concert hall, and
were happy to hear Iulia Greer swinging Beethoven,
accompanied by Freida Katz at the violin and Mary
Christine Bogue at the concert piano. The next day
found us at the magnificent University of Medicine,
surveying the work of Drs. Paul Murphy and Herman
LaVelle., assisted by the brilliant woman doctor,
Florence Kline. The English stage provided the great
actress, Beverley Brown, in a magnificent portrayal of
Lady Macbeth. Playing opposite her as the mighty
Macbeth was Douglas Grimes. While in England, we
were honored to meet King George fSonidasD, the
VIII, and Prime Minister Ierome Adler. Visiting a
quaint Olde English Antigue Shoppe, we came upon
lean lohnson, proprietor. Before leaving England, we
ran into Gene Myers, and chatted with him awhile.
He explained his work as Chief Street Cleaner in that
district of London. After assuring him that we did not
want to buy the London Bridge, we wished him luck
Professor Douglas Day, complete with monacle, pour- .
From England, our next stop was France, and
we planned eagerly how we would spend our few
days in gay Paree. Walking through the streets of
Paris, we saw a familiar sign on a large building which
read, "YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH WRIGHT" and
we immediately knew that our old senior class presi-
dent, Floyd Wright, had finally owned a large cloth-
ing store. This one proved to be the largest one in
Paris and we hurried inside to greet our old friend.
Before entering however, we saw one of our best
friends, l-Iarriette Fleisher, in one of the show-windows.
trimming each window carefully. Inside, we fwund
three beautiful girls, modeling the latest Paris Fash-
ions, and recognized them as Dorothy Mulhollan,
Betty Ann Wray, and Rosemary Robinson. Modeling
the latest styles in men's clothing was handsome Cliff
Milton. On the sales force was Pauline Madden, sell-
ing hose, lean Moseley, selling cosmetics, and Elise
Waters, selling hats. Saying -good-bye to all our
friends at Wright's, we left. That night we visited the
famous Parisian cafe where Brents Ballet of Beautiful
Bouncing Belles was playing, and we were'n.t surpris-
ed to find that this galley of gals belonged to our old
woman killer, Darrel Brents of Humes. Amid the wine
and song, we spotted Betty Rooney, news columnist,
reporting all the night's events. The cigarette girl in
the Cafe D'Brents proved to be Cozette Cole.
Finally tearing ourselves away from the gaiety
and frivolity of France, we departed for Switzerland.
We found a guiet, quaint little place called, "Annie's
Little Olde Tea Shoppe" and upon entering, found the
owner to be Ann Pulliam. lnguiring about any of our
old school mates, we were told by Ann that Mary
Alice Skelton had a Home for Recupercrting Service
Men a few miles from there, where Betty Deviney was
employed to read bed-time stories to the boys every
night. We decided to drop in and see them before
leaving. From there we took in the all-sports carnival.
We found Martha Reitz, world's tennis champion, and
watched excitingly as she won game after game. Next
was the world's heavy-weight boxing champion, Eu-
gene Anton, and we talked over old times with his
little wife, jean Temple. Then came the skiing and
skating sports. The famous skier, Marguerite Sum-
mers, agreed to help us learn, and we finally master-
ed the basic training of the art of skiing. We saw
many friends among the skiers-the famous comed-
ienne, Nona Minor, and her friend, Helen jennings,
Lucille Mather and Annette Feldman, well-known
acrobats, Frances Nixon, pin-up girl of World War ll,
the two lrnogenes, Ramseger, and May, dancing part-
ners, and Margie Tate, hair stylist, all vacationing in
Switzerland. The famous skating team, Vivian Shoffner
and Ruth Russom, were two of the most popular girls
in the country.
Bidding farewell to Switzerland, we journeyed to
Italy, home of wine and spaghetti. We noticed the
brand of a favorite wine there, and discovered that
Ted York had become a connoisseur of ltalian grape
juice. At an ltalian restaurant, owned by jesse Zellner,
we found as head cooks, Leah Rosenberg and Matilda
Sapenstein, and as waitresses, Nancy Freedman and
LaVerne Evensky. We came across Marilyn Davis,
author of the two best-sellers, 'iCall of the Open Fire-
place," and "The Mystery of the Clubbed Cop."
From Italy, Russia was next. There we were met
by a welcoming party from the Soviet Newspaper, the
Blue Sun, headed by its publisher, Irving Cooperman.
On its staff were Dorothy Brown, commentator, juan-
elle Davis, world affairs editor, and Mary Louise Rob-
ertson, woman's editor. We were taken to a brilliant
Russian cafe operated by Buford Pinner. There we
were entertained by the Ouaint Cossacks of Color, a
group of Russian chorus cuties. Outstanding in the
chorus line were Willie Mae Thomas, Mary Thornley,
and Virginia Pyle. Frances Maynard crooned several
Russian lullabies to us and after that we left, rejoicing
over the many former school friends we had run into.
We were interviewed the next day by Russia's only
woman foreign correspondent, joyce Williams, who
told us about several of our school-mates of IQ44.
George Bagwell had become a great nurse and was
still practicing in Sweden, Christine Dozier had be-
come manager of a large chain of Walgreens drug
stores all over the world, Sunshine Stowers had
spread her name all over the universe selling comic
books, Louise Taylor was now a school teacher, and
jolida Alsup was head of a famous school of poise
From Russia we visited briefly the old empire of
japan, and met Robert Williams, our popular boy of
l944, now heading the new government there. Under
him, Cecil Riggin and Thomas Goodwin, kept order.
j. D. Brooks acted as interpreter and solved many
From japan we continued to the last stop on our
tour before we got back to the good old U. S. A. ln
Hawaii we came across several more of our former
friends. We were surprised to find dressed in those
grass skirts four of them-Shirley Walker, Elizabeth
Hudson, ,Virginia Lanier, and Mildred Blake. Earl
Pardon and Frank Talbot, when not indulging in the
age-old game of craps, owned a pineapple company.
Several girls worked in this company-among them,
Betty jean Smith, Vivian Mills, Katherine Edwards,
june Frederickson, Shirley Bacialupo, and Gladys
Belch. A few boys from the old wolf-pack, james
Price, Eddie Rogers, and Orville Mitchell, had a grass
skirt manufacturing business, but we expected that it
was who wore the grass skirts that interested them.
We also found Walter Patzch, commander of our
Marine forces there.
We finally left the isle of pinapple and palm trees,
to journey homeward. Weighed down with leis and
fruit, we tossed pennies from the boat into the water
for the little boys to dive after. We laughed to see
Russell Brooks among the divers, getting rich quick.
Back in the states, we decided to take in Holly-
wood, little realizing we would find more of our former
class mates. Since Clark Gable had retired from the
screen, that beautiful hunk of man, Oscar Buchanan
had moved in to No. I spot as the "Great Lover."
Playing opposite him in many of his films was glomor-
ous Dorothy Allnut. Taking Mae West's place, we
found Dot Baxley, wowing cinema fans all over
America. Replacing johnny Weissmeller in the Tarzan
series was Nathan Blockman. Other screen stars were
Marcella Carmon, Lois Barcus, Estelle Clapp, Margaret
Allan, and Martha Watts. Favorite commedienne was
Cornelia Alexander. The ballet team of Eppinette and
Alexander four own Hazel and Bessiej was a popular
one, In the famous Trocadero now owned by j. T.
Barnes, was the regular billing of Nancy Williams and
Betty jane May, while Shirley Hiskey and Mary Louise
Durbin had just left for New York and a career on the
stage. The biggest motion picture studio was owned
by jimmie Mae Overton, who started out as a mere
ticket girl in an up-town theater in our home town.
Upon visiting this studio we found Margaret Miller
directing Doris Reeds latest picture, "Single Girl."
We soon left Hollywood, and finally arrived in
New York City. There we learned of many new haa-
penings while we were away. jimmy Young was ap-
pointed a General in the United States Army and
Mary Lou Hudgins was head of the W'oman's Army.
The charitable Tenenbaum sisters, Helen and Sylvia,
now had "Tenenbaum's Home for Homeless Renasf'
There too, we learned that janie Ferguson and jean-
ette Wagerman had been given permission to be the
only two women students at Harvard. Dorothy White
and Mary jane Campbell were given a high degree of
honor by john Robert Gregg, for their excellence in
shorthand. Thomas Davis was awarded first prize for
his collection of fine dogs, and Margaret Sterling was
given a position in the world Symphony Orchestra,
Ann Carleton was voted "Miss America of l950," and
Ollie Mae Billings and Dorothy Shook contributed to
science by their work at the University, while
jacueline jett had become a brilliant criminal lawyer.
Russell Dawson, replacing Frank Sinatra, was still
knocking the poor girls in the aisles with just one
look. We found another old friend, heading Harry

PAGEANTIQY af W,
Pageantry at Humes, as developed in the last three years, is one among
the many activities of the school year.
The pictorial representation of the commencement program for the spring
of 1943 is found on the preceding page.
A pageant, The Music of America, was the theme of the graduating
exercises in May. The combined talent of the school was used to produce
this colorful climax of the year's Work, which was given at the Overton
This modernized type of graduation is an effort to move forward, not
backward, in a changing World, and to abandon the traditional unless it can
also be the useful.
Presenting diplomas is Mr. W. M. Prescott, President of the Memphis
Board of Education, leading the academic procession is Mr. D. M. Hilliard,
Principal of Humes High School.
