SENIOR CLASS he Senior Class of 1945! Ah, how beautiful those words do sound to our waiting ears. Twelve long years have we toiled, studied, and learned. All this for the moment when we take our sheepskins and murmur a polite but shaky "thank you" to the person doing the honors. Ours is quite an unusual class, there being approxi- mately orle hundred fifty members with an average of two girls to one boy. lt has indeed been affected by the war as these figures indicate. This also accounts for the marriages which have taken place during the year, among which are those of Wilma Hines to Clarence Sloper, Phyllis Anton to Charles Ritchie, leanette Pine to limmy lennings, Betty Sue Eorwalter to Victor Carlson, Lorraine Barnett to Iames Willis, and Mary Louise Nelson to William Butler. All the boys are in the service, while the girls are continuing to gain knowledge and experience by remaining in school. The senior class is divided into four sections with Miss Iennie Allensworth presiding over 12-1, Miss Gertrude Geraghty over 12-2, Mr. C. C. lones over 12-3, and Miss Mildred Scrivener over 12-4. Each of these homerooms is outstanding in its own right, for they include many students who are unusually gifted or talented, some who have notable birthdays such as Mary Lewis, hers falls on Mother's Day. She has won innumerable contests and awards for her art work. Among them, the Iames Lee Memorial Award for the Outstanding Young Artist of the year in 1938 and again in 1941. Her work has also been exhibited at Brooks Memorial. Other unusual birthday are loy Wilsons and Peggy lean Yandel1's. Theirs fall on Armistice Day and Halloween respectively. Teddy Petrovsky of 12-3 has also done outstanding work in Art and in Music. He puts his talents to use by playing the piano for almost all the school pro- grams and in addition for the USO whenever called upon. lrene Stergios collects figurines from different countries and has a large number in her possession. lean Beaton of 12-1 Won recognition for Humes by winning the city-wide Malaria Poster Contest for 1944. She has also done sketches for the Herald which have never failed to bring forth praise. Bettye Burson, Rosa Paller, and Carolyn Brenner have brought honors to Humes by outstanding work in the Speech Depart- ment and Herald Staff activities. Rosa Paller and Leslie lnman have done much to make the Humes Debating Team one of the best in the city. Bettye Page Twenty , . . . CAROLYN BRENNER Burson, the editor of the paper, is responsible for the wonderful editions put out this year. Vital statistics show that she is the shortest girl in the Senior Class, being a mere four feet-eleven inches. Carolyn Brenner has won several essay contests, among them Tennes- see second place in the 1944 National Cotton Essay Contest. Curtis Hall of 12-2 is the successful Humes drum major who in addition specializes in tap and ballet. Thomas Keeton and Ronald Taylor have hobbies that also serve as sources of income. Thomas builds and sells boats of almost any kind and description. Ron- nie's job as student director of the band led to his directing a jazz band of his own. An oddity lies in the fact that Eugene Curtis, Presi- dent and Harvey Carter, Vice-President of 12-1 hold the same offices for the entire Senior Class, as does loyce Stocks, Treasurer. Lindy Wilder is the envy of every speech student for he was selected to do a role in one of the Little Theater productions, "Iunior Miss,"' which he did very well according to the newspaper reviews, Few people know the accordionists, the Class boasts of, they are Sylvia Shiffman, Robert Iohn- son, and Teddy Petrovsky. ln Ianuary of this year eleven of the class graduated at Tech because of work done at summer school. All came from the 12-1 home- room. They were Lloyd Adams, George Hutchinson, Forrest Hettinger, George Thomas, Carolyn Massey, Sylvia Wolfe, Lorraine Barnett, Ieanette Currie, lean- ette Pine, Betty Sue Eorwalter, and Nevis Quarrin. Annabel Miller wrote the Senior Class Poem. Anna- bel likes to write poems, in which a speciality of hers is surprise endings that do exactly that-surprise one: Loraine Achord has kept it a secret, but those things will out. She, too, is a poet although she modestly denies it. Humes has always had a better-than-average ROTC Battalion. This year it was under the command of Don Kaurez, Lieutenant Colonel, who, too, served with ferry Crook as Co-Captain ofthe football team that made such a grand showing last fall. 12-3 boasts Nick Speros who won recognition for Humes by his excel- lent work as tailback on the team, 12-4 has Red Wil- liams who made All-Memphis and All-State in foot- ball this year-the first time this has come to a Humes boy. lt seems as if seniors pre-dominate in holding offices in the various clubs which go to form the business and
