social life here at school. Presidents of the clubs are: Thomas Keeton, Honor Society, Nick Speros, Sabre , Club, Donald Kaurez, H Club, Leslie Inman, National Forensic League, Carolyn Brenner, Thespians Drama- tics Societyg Iames Wright, T. and I. Clubg and Frances Butler, Senior Girl Reserves. A great many of the seniors have taken part-time jobs, among these are Mary Nell Saltz, Io Ann Miller, Martha McCullar, Thomas Grimes, Billy Bennett, lane Ferber, Dot Morrison, 'Evelyn Nelius, Miriam Leevine, Ioe Tanner, Sidney Waller, Betty Wildes, Sarah Book, Iewel Reynolds, Katie Dozier, Bobbie Nell Sullivan, Mary Richartz, Kathryn Poulos, Harold Osburn, Thelma Weeks, Adele Mendelson, Frankie Wilder and of course, Walter Underwood who is employed as chief cook and bottle-washer, and porter at the store, Schoffner's Inc. Because of his faithfulness to duty for the last three years, he has just recently been pro- moted to the office of floor-walker. We give him our heartiest congratulations. The blonde manicurist at Goldsmith's is Lila Lee Phillips. Bry's has given up trying to decide which of the Heyer twins is which, and so leaves it up to Miss Geraghty in whose home- room they reside. fUnfortunately for her.l Hilred Mims left her twin, Mildred, in the eleventh grade while she attended summer school in order to graduate this year. Edward White is not a twin himself, but he does have brothers who are. They seem to be living in New Caledonia at present. l2-3 probably doesn't even know it, but they have a young lady, so talented that she was asked to join the Skating Vanities when they played in Memphis recently. She is the youngest person in the class, and also the best-looking according to the Who's Who Contest. Her name is Mildred Martin. Several of our boys who lacked only a short time until graduation were called up on offer what was theirs to give in the various branches of the service. Some of them were Eugene Collie, Bob Williams, Iames Willis, and Billie Barfield. With them all go our best wishes with the hope that they return very soon, bringing total victory and peace with them. And so goes the history of the Senior Class-good times, sad times, gay times, mad times. All of them eventful, however, and never-to-be-forgotten for they occurred at the best Alma Mater any senior class ever could have-The L. C. Humes High School.
