gli ET us be challenged by the heights to which men like
ourselves can rise. Let us be proud ot the tact that We
are human beings and, because We are human beings, We con--
.. tain Within ourselves resources ot strength and power great
enough to enable us to climb tar and high. There is much dis-
illusionment, much discouragement, much temptation to take
the easy Way, the short cut, to do the expedient rather than the I :K
3555 i right. But We are men-and because we are men We can rise
above the dead level of yielding. lt is not what destiny does with
us but what we do With destiny that determines what We shall
2:9435 become . . . XT
Let lite challenge you and be confident in your reply, for ZZ
you are a man and the hardships of lite are sent you not by an
unkind destiny to crush you, but to challenge you. Our Hhumani- 2555
ty" is not our Weakness but our strength. Despite much of the l mf
artiliciality of lite around us, the two greatest words in the
English language still are 'l can'!

Progress in Transportation
Dr. Hilliard, realizing the necessity for some means
ot school transportation which would be available at
all times, has added to the school equipment a station
wagon. Some of the trips the station wagon has made
in its first year ot service are one to Chattanooga, one
to Humboldt, one to lackson, one to Martin, and two
to Nashville. ln addition this has been a ready means
for getting members ot the athletic department to and
from the games they have played, and for transacting
many matters of school business.

SENIV R CLA PI f ?i-IECY
By IRENE MARTIN and BERNICE SAPERSTEIN
S WE, Irene Martin and Bernice Saperstein,
the world's two most famous connoisseurs
of fashion watch the Statue of Liberty melt
into the horizon, we wonder what surprises this trip
will unfold. We have consented, as a special favor
to lim Mack, to go on a world tour in quest of new
styles for his exclusive salon, Mack's Fifth Avenue.
We have pledged ourselves to fulfill this duty even if
we must travel to the ends of the earth.
We are suddenly awakened from our pleasant remi-
niscences by our agent, Claude Azlin, who informs us
that our jet-propelled yacht fwhich was designed by
Walter Hedgej is approaching our first stop-Rio.
From the dock we are driven by Roger Stanley to
Larry Bell's hacienda. Worn to a frazzle, we try des-
perately to catch a little sleep in the newest of Nodd
and Nodd noiseless gliders, but we are rudely aroused
by a commotion caused by the Bell children and their
coach, Earl Cunningham, having their daily scrim-
mage. Although this is the life of Reyle fCharlesl we
decide to move on for our obligations come before
Stopping in Rio for a tube of K. Tanner toothpaste,
we are startled to find that our clerk is our Spanish-
speaking classmate, Eleanor Slaughter. After eight
hours of gossip with the aid of a Coleman-Crippen
Spanish-American dictionary to help us interpret the
conversation she mentions that 'tis rumored that one
of Humes' '48 graduates is spending some time at
Devil's Island. Women will be women and we have
to find out who it is. After all, we might find a new
Ordering that our steward, Fannie Mae, tell Ed Bus-
sell, our pilot to gear the engine at full speed, we pon-
der during dinner as to who this classmate can be.
However, we are told by Bob Kinkle, the warden of
Devil's lsland, that even our most far-fetched imagin-
ings could never conceive this member of the Senior
Class of '48 in prison. Our curiosity is consuming us,
but his name deals us the death blow. Eli Weil, our
radical classmate, on Devil's Islandl
After recovering from this blow, we, with our pur-
pose still in mind, head for the states to charter a con-
tinent-bound plane. At the same instant our foot
touches U. S. soil, the Poulos Post is thrust into our
hands declaring that our old buddy, Sidney Losko-
vitz, is running for President of the United States on
the fourth ticket-Enough for Everybody!-with Percy
Wright as his running mate. Yes, I-fumes is in the
The paper thrown aside, we rush to our waiting
limousine with Eugene Barrett at the wheel and are
driven to the Crow Club, owned and operated by Mel-
ba Crow. We arrive just as Donald Sharp and his
Six Flats, Alex Alexander, Eugene Bollinger, Peyton
Branch, james Terry, Eugene I-lelbig, and Bob Parker,
give the fanfare for the floor show.
The house lights dim and Ed Williams, that card of
cards, announce the feature detraction, Gypsy lo Iones
and her double, Eva Gene jones. We are interrupted
by our waiter, Lamar Emith, informing us that our
plane is ready to leave. Buying a pack of Phillip Wil-
sons from the "cig-aars" yelling cigarette girl, Mary
Willie Lambeth, and grabbing our wraps from Frances
Keith, the hat check girl, we rush out the door only to
be confronted by a flock of autograph hounds. Stop-
ping only a moment to pass out autographed pictures
to Stanley Zellner and the other ardent admirers, we
hail a Black fMarthaj and White fAlmedal cab, which
is a Tucker '48 model, and speed to the airport.
We arrive at Cetner Field, recently renamed for the
present mayor of Brooklyn, Pearl, and board our Short
Ueanl and Long fl-lomerj rocket ship for Paris.
'Tis true Paris in spring is beautiful we realize as we
ride down the Rue de la May Uo Annl to the DeMarco
Hotel. Gur car door is opened by Roy Durell, our
bags are carried by Eddie Manker and Frank Paulus,
our registration is accepted by Carl Ray Allen, and
we are lifted in an Oates Elevator to the 188th floor
by I-Iarry jones. The maids, Ann Allnutt, lane Ballard,
Ioyce Cutsinger, Betty Io Gaetano, and Mary Lee Hol-
comb, are just filing out the door as we move in.
Gay Paree presents us with a full calendar and our
first date is Mademoiselle Reitz's fashion show, which
gives us an idea on the new look which is definitely
old by this time. Among the celebrities at this collos-
sal affair are Billy Smith and the former Lucille Blaydes
choosing Lucille's new fall ensembleg Betty Evans,
Sally Gray, Camille Perry, Carroll Murrell, and Thel-
ma Crone, selecting their trousseaus. The manne-
quins, Shirley Mosely and Christine Mills, under An-
cyle Raburn's supervision, were showing the Ioan
Frederickson hats, fGenel Burt shoes, and Westbrook
fBettyj bags off to advantage. The reception follow-
ing is catered by Kitchen, Inc., with Sammy Lazerov,
Dempsey Marbut, and Pat May preparing the Crappe
Suzettes. The main event of our sojourn in Paris is
forthcoming. Our party, consisting of Count Bender-
man, the Duke of Cantor, and ourselves, makes its
way to the LaVelle Follies. We are ushered to our
seats by Glenn Fuqua. The curtain goes up and the
song-and-dance man, Fleming Chiles, begins the show.
Our motive for coming to the follies is the next num-
ber on the program-the CAN-CAN! Craining our
necks, we identify the individual members of the cho-
rus, now turned French-Iacqueline Bilger, Fifi fRose-
lynj Strong, Chi Chi fDotD Burress, Babette fBetty lol
Moore, Viviane Russell, Merry lean Newton, and Rene
Clrene Touliatos. Unable to envision anything more
exciting, we take leave of Gay Paree. As business
matters are pressing, we fly due south across the Med-
iterranean into Africa-and continent of mystery. We
touch African soil at Algiers. Hearing the ancient cry
of the slave auctioneer we seek it source. In the cen-
ter of the crowd stands Billy Miller surrounded by
slave girls, Betty lane Allen, Bettye Atkins, Christine
Coble, Gloria Iacobus, and Donna Iohnson. The mo-
mentary bids are being taken for Rose Goin, the only
red-headed slave in captivity.
From pleasure to business-we again board our
plane. From our place in the observation room of the
plane our attention is attracted by a startling orange
object on the desert below. Our curiosity is enhanced
by the memory of our school colors and we ask our
co-pilots, lack S. Holt and lack D. Holt, to land. As
the orange-cloaked figure rides toward us we identify
him as lack Doty. He informs us that his life-long am-
bition had at last come true, and he is now a mem-
ber of the Foreign Legion. Bidding lack adieu, we
once more ascend in the plane. We stop in Cairo to
refuel and meet some old friends boarding a ship.
They have formed a new Lewis Uanetl and Clark
CBetty Annl, CGeorgel Stanley and Cleanettej Livings-
ton expedition to explore the jungles of Africa.
Winging our way to Delhi, we are reminded of pre-
vious invitation from the Sultan of Begdad, Bill Mar-
tin, to spend some time at his palace. Awaiting our
plane are the elephant boys, Howard johnson, Archie
Wood, I. E. Williams, and George Kuss, who are to
escort us to his mansion. We find Bill surrounded by
a few members of his harem. He explained that he
did not wish to leave the states entirely behind and
had brought along Babe Hendren, Ann Lowe, Ianet
Martin, Betty lean McFarland, Betty loyce Pearson,
and IoAnn Stubblefield, with the latter as queen of
the harem. We are entertained by Burtina Warren
and her famous Dance of the Seven Veils. However,
her dance is interrupted by Hal Winfield. Poor Hal
likes to travel so much that he has become a Fleischer
We are surprised to receive a phone call from Lord
Mount Gwaltney fTommyl inviting us to the Olympic
Games which are being held in Forrest Clonesl Park
in London. We sail immediately. Our guide, Floyd
johnson, meets us at the boat and takes us to the field
of activity. We see the two women champion bowlers,
Mary Ann Coleman and Betty Ruth Gee, wearing "On
the Ball with Robert Ball Bowling Shoes." Their pri-
vate pin boys, A. D. Mims and Louis Turri, scurry to
replace the pins.
From the clatter of pins we go to the batter of fists
to see Clarence Cox and lack Lampley struggle for
the "Unlimited" Championship. The referee, lack Glan-
cy, is unable to come to a decision so we leave.
We- drop into the House of Commons a moment to
hear a debate between Iudy Saul and the quartet,
Sophie Makris, lrene Katsoulis, Betty Catherine White,
and Barbara Goins, debating whether Maurice Bran-
don should or shouldn't. lt was decided that he should.
Deciding that grass skirts never go out of style, we
set sail for Hawaii. According to tradition, we are
greeted by penny divers, Bernard Hirsch, Frank Rus-
sell, Humphrey Kortrecht, Henry Schwartz, and Har-
old Piercey. We are further welcomed by flower girls,
Virginia Adams, Mary Elizabeth Cromwell, Mabel Ruth
Graves, Mary Edna King, Dorothy Cavett, and Mary
Ann Sowell who bedeck us with colorful leis.
As a visit to Hawaii is not complete without seeing
the hula girls, we make the row of grass huts our first
stop. We are surprised to find Bernie Helsley and
Roslyn Leevine dancing behind two stacks of hay, ac-
companied by the Maddox Boys CGene and Georgel
on the geetar.
And so, on to Mexico. We enter the bullring just in
time to see Verna Williams, the only female matador
in the world, approaching the bull. Her assistants,
Benjamin Wagerman and Walter Tomlinson, the torea-
dor and picador, respectively, are also familiar to us.
Vending hot tamales in the stands are Senoritas Thel-
ma Bogard, Thelma jackson, and luanita Warden. As
we are about to leave the stadium we stand a moment
in respectful silence listening to Mexico's newly
adopted national anthem, "Manana," sung by Dorothy
Boyanton. Driving through the streetss toward the
airport, we notice several familiar figures, though part-
ly hidden by concealing sombreros, Pancho McGroom,
Sancho Miner, Pedro Morrow, Chico lack Fitzgerald
Kelly, Gaucho Perry, taking advantage of the siesta.
Before terminating our tour we decide to visit the
windy city in hope that the visit will be profitable. On
our sojourn to the CMaryl Black Hotel we are inter-
cepted by a crowd which pushes us into Pickard Park,
which we later find is named for the founder, lean
Pickard, who discovered this territory while traveling
in Chicago. However, our attention is attracted by a
platform speaker, who with the aid of a pair of Brad-
ley Binoculars, we identify as lohn Strauser. Elbow-
ing our way to the range of his speech we find that
he is heading a BETTER FARM MOVEMENT, and pro-
viding a background are Durell Suber and his Corn-
fed Crooners, William james Smith, Elvin Glaze, james
Moore, Presley Moore, with Raymond Ross on the
banjo. This floors us so we leave.
We make our last stop New York City, by way of
the Rhea-Rhodes Railroad. Stopping at the Ragsdale
Restaurant, we partake of a bottle of Canaday Cola
supplie by the waitress, Gloria Singleton.
Our tour at an end, we rush to Mack's to report our
progress. We whiz through the store stopping only
long enough to greet at their respective counters, lean
Winter, Gwynette MacDonald, Eleene McCoy, Leona
Dycus, and Carol Walker. We are taken to Mr. Mack's
private penthouse office by Lawanda Stewart, the ele-
vator girl. Our presence is announced by Connie
Street and we are ushered into lim's panelled cham-
'lWe failed, Mr. Mack, to secure ultra-modern fash-
ions but we have brought you some information as to
the whereabouts of the Senior Class of '48."
'Ii-IE SENK R CLASS HISTORY
' By ELI WEIL and IACK DOTY
N l942 this graduating class entered the halls
of Humes High School. We were supposed
to be an outstanding group of young peo-
ple-the hope of the world for future peace.
We came to l-lumes from various schools, the city ele-
mentary schools, the county schools, and from some
While in the grammar grades we had given all our
allegiance to our respective institutions. Now we had
entered Humes, and although we still cherished the
memories of grammar school, all our loyalty and alle-
giance were given to Humes. Humes High School Was
the melting pot of the city grammar schools, just as
the United States was the melting pot of the world.
The resemblance between our school government and
our Federal democracy did not stop there. We were
allowed to pick our own classes, teachers, and to vote
in the election of student government officers.
During our first year, in the seventh grade, we dis-
covered so many new and different things that we
were amazed. A different class every hour, the fine
auditorium periods, the lunch room provisions, and
many more things were greeted first with bewilder-
ment, later with a pride that we attended Humes.
Our second year was rather normal and uneventful,
as we began to feel like big shots to the new crop of
In the ninth grade we began to meet with new ex-
periences again. We had heard of Certification Ex-
ercises, but these did not even seem real until we en-
tered the ninth grade. We practiced and worked and
finally a thrill of pride went through us as we received
our certificates before our assembled parents and
Our number, then an impressive 350, has noticeably
diminished since the ninth grade, leaving us l82 grad-
uates. This decrease can be attributed to some stu-
dents moving out of town, some going to other schools
and others dropping their education completely. To
those who did this through necessity we offer our sym-
pathy, and to those who left without reason we offer
As we entered the tenth grade, having now arrived
in Senior High School, we began to choose our school
careers. Some of us became interested in band work,
some in shop and vocational training, others in aca-
demic studies in preparation for college. Peace came
to the world again after years of ravaging wars, and
we looked forward to normal, peaceful life. The elev-
enth grade was the year that we enjoyed most since
we came to Humes. This year passed most rapidly.
Many of our close friends received honors and grad-
uated at the end of the year.
Then came the big time-WE WERE SENIORS. We
were in the very shoes of those we had looked up to
in our first five years at I-fumes. We were the grad-
uating class of 1948! For those who planned to go to
college, scholarships were offered. Awards were
given the prize athletes. Recognition was given to
seniors whose intelligence ranked high, and as al-
ways, when the time presented itself, the faculty and
Senior Class selected outstanding students.
Now we go forth into the world, armed with six
years of preparation on "HOW TO LIVE." We can
never overestimate the value of the lessons learned in
Humes. We hope, and feel sure, that in future years
the pupils of I-lumes will enjoy themselves and learn
as much in their years here as We did in ours.
SENIVR CLA PF EM
We look out at the world today
And wonder what it holds,
As we start to make our forays
Against the world's strongholds.
We'll remember our days at I-lumes,
The happy and the the sad,
But now our school days come to end
And none of us are glad.
The lessons learned, still fresh in mind,
Will ease the load a bit,
But we bear the torch of knowledge,
Which was in Humes first lit.
And when, far off in distant years,
Your goals have been attained,
Think once again of old Humes High
Where our knowledge was gained.

THE 1947 PooTBALL SUMMARY
The 1948 football team retained from former years
the fighting spirit that 1-lumes has become known for.
Every game the Tigers played was closely contested
and "win or lose" the honor of l-lumes was always
The season opened at Crump Stadium on Sep-
tember 12 as the Tigers romped over Ripley, Tennes-
see 32-7. Less than a week later prep league play
began and Humes faced the vaunted South Side
Scrappers and lost 2U-U to the team who eventually
won the city championship. The Tigers took Catholic
High 39-7 on October 24. The next game proved to be
one of the biggest upsets of the year, as a fighting
1-fumes team outplayed and outscored a Central team
On Friday, October 3, a contingent from Hurnes
traveled to Iackson, Tennessee to defeat the Golden
Bears 7-6. This win was followed by losses to Tread-
well 18-2 and Whitehaven 20-13. On October 29, C.
B. C. nosed out the Tigers 13-U. Tech beat the Tigers
20-6 and Messick won 27-7.
Record-Won 4, Lost 6.
Basketball at l-fumes was definitely on the im-
provement side this year. Coach Taylor had the boys
playing a well organized brand of scientific ball and
seemed destined to place the Tiger cagers in the
league's upper bracket until ineligibility and injuries
to key men brought a set back. With most of this
year's cagers due back for another year of play we
can look forward to better prospects for success next
The baseball team of spring l947 failed to live
up to expectations as the hitters failed to come
through at the plate. Where the championship team
of l946 had 8 boys batting better than .300 the slump
in 1947 pulled all hitters below that mark.
Highlight of the season was the selection of Lefty
George Stanley and second baseman Fred Bargiacchi
as All-Memphis. As we go to press during this year's
season the Tigers are in second place with 5 wins
against 2 setbacks at the end of the first half of

As the Senior Herald goes to press we note with
pride that the Tiger Medley Belay team ot Harry
tones, Billy Parsons, Hugh Powers, and Milton Ber-
trand has just set a new city record in winning that
event in the prep track meet, and although the record
is not yet eligible tor State recognition, the Humes
team bettered the State record tor the event by more
than 9 seconds.

Humes wins again! For the fourth straight year
the Humes mittmen slugged their way to the prep
championship. With only 5 men in the tinals against
9 for the favored Catholic High team, the Tigers came
through with tour wins, namely Bobby Weakley, Ierry
Byars, Clarence Cox, and Larry Bell, while Catholic
was dropping all 9 of their bouts and another beauti-
ful championship boxing trophy was added to the

I-IUMES WINS 1947-1948 PREP BGXING TOURNAMENT
UNCONQUERABLE TIGERS SLUG WAY TO FOURTH STRAIGHT
Weakley, Byars, Cox and Bell Win in Finals to Become Mem-
phis City Champs
On Thursday, December 18, 1947, the fourth night of the
four-day tournament, the Humes Tigers boxed themselves
to the top at the Ellis Auditorium to remain champions.
The defending champions, coached by Iohnny Goodspeed,
set the foundation the first night by winning four out of four
fights. In the Gnatweight, Ruby Gamble, decisioned Earl Quin-
ley from Tech. lerry Byars took Gill Bull, Tech, in the Bantam-
weight. lack Lampley won on default in the Featherweight
division when Bobby Guin, Southside, failed to show up. Bobby
Weakley defeated Dick Nellis, C. B. C., in a very close fight.
The Tigers moved into the second round with nine fighters
on the line. Again showing strong talent, the Bengals took
seven of the nine fights. Ray from South Side, who later won
the Gnatweight Championship, defeated Rudy Gamble. Lion-
nell Farrell, making his initial appearance, decisioned Brennan
from C. B. C. Ray Crook, fighting for the Fleaweight, took a
decision from Whitehead of Central. Ierry Byars, who won the
Bantamweight Championship, defeated Paul Berlin, Central, in
a very hard fight. Ed Williams lost a decision to Wener, C. B.
C., who won the championship in the lightweight division.
Clarence Cox pounded out a decision over Hearn from Tread-
well. ln the Senior Welterweight, Claude Azlin decisioned
Drewery, also from the Highland Heights gang. Stanley Zell-
ner scored the only knockout up to this point when he caught
up with Laverne Dean, a Central gridiron star, in 55 seconds
of the second round.
Humes sent seven men up to fight in the semi-finals only
to have three come out victors. Lionell Farrell dropped a de-
cision to Rosenberry from South Side, the champion in that di-
vision. Roy Crook, looking as good as ever, snatched a deci-
sion from Cole, hailing from C. B. C. Ed Buffaloe, an excep-
tionally good gladiator from Messick, who took the champion-
ship, defeated lack Lampley. Clarence Cox defeated Drennan

OUT C. B. C. TO BECOME MAT CHAMPS
A two-day tournament, replacing the usual three-day, got
under way at the Y. M. C. A. on the night of March 17, 1948.
Nine grapplers from Humes drew first-round opponents and
five came out victorious.
Robert Shears, paperweight, defeated Albert Burson from
ln the Bantamweight, Glen Duprey was pinned by Haynes
Cecil Stallings, C. B. C., was given the nod over Feather-
weight Ed Williams in a much disputed decision.

from South Side. h A I
Ed Bussell pinned Louie Werne, C. B. C., in the Iunior Mid-
from C. B. C. Iimmy Martin, an ex-Tiger, pulled a decision
from Claude Azlin. Stanley Zellner had the tables turned on
him when Bill Haas of Tech, who went on to win the Middle-
weight Championship, K. O.ed him in the first round. Larry
Bell, a heavy puncher and a smart boxer, made his initial roll
by knocking out Holmes from Catholic High in the first round.

The fights shifted from the Shelby County Gym to the Audi-
torium and to the finals with Humes claiming five men left.
Catholic High with eight men in the finals seemed to be a
cinch to get a first or second, but wound up without a cham-
pion and a defeated list of fighters. Humes took four fights
and first place. C. B. C. took three and second.
Roy Crook, after some good fighting, ran into a mighty
right from McLaurine. Treadwell, in the last of the first. He
was saved by the bell and the game little fighter came out in
the second somewhat shaken up. A minute of the second
round was enough for Coach Goodspeed, who has coached
Humes' boxing team for some time, to throw in the towell.
Bobbie Weakley brought new hopes with a decisive victory
over Lawrence from Catholic High.
Ierry Byars pounded out a decision over Shipley, also from
Catholic High, in one of the best fights of the night. Terry
showed true championship form.
Clarence Cox followed with a tough victory over Pete May-
nard from Catholic High. Both of the men looked good, but it
was plainly Cox's fight all the way.
Larry Bell came up next to find the crown staring him in
the face. One more fight for Humes and the championship
was cinched, and that he did. Bell took the decision from Carl-
ton Miller, a returning champ, in a very tough encounter.
All the losing Humes boxers lost to the title holders!
Clarence Cox received the trophy from Henry Reynolds
immediately after the fights in behalf of the team.

A. D. Minis, middleweight, was defeated by Hugh Gregory
from C. B. C.
Melton Bertrand decisioned Hal Lipsey, a '48 champ from
South Side, in the light heavyweight division.

gras outweighted and defeated by Iimmy Shackouls of South
Humes sent six men into the finals, coming out with one
champion and 21 points. South Side also had Z1 to tie with
Humes for third place. Tech came out with 30 for the first and
C. B. C. 27 for second.
Lonnie Wilson lost out to Alvin Ray, South Side, in the
tissue paper weight
Robert Shears was also downed by Ioe lmm from Tech in

MUSIC DEPARTMENT GAINS RECOGNITION
MR. R. ROY COATES, Director of Band
The Humes Senior Band, consisting of 88 pieces,
has scored many triumphs during the 1947-'48 school
Among these the Band has won First Place among
the marching bands for two successive years in the
City Beautiful Parades. The award in each case Was
a silver Loving Cup. Another signal honor which
came to them was selection to lead the Wednesday
afternoon parade in the Cotton Carnival. The Hurnes
Band is one of the first in Memphis to be invited to
appear at the Strawberry Festival in Humboldt, Ten-
nessee, Where they went in May. The members of the
Band will enter the contest over television during the
i947-'48 Cotton Carnival.
One of the most colorful exhibitions of the Band
was its appearance at the football games. It was
their custom with Drum Major and Majorettes to pa-
rade during the half. In colorful procedure the Band
personnel displayed their excellent training.
This year was an important year in the history
of the Band, because they received new orange and
grey uniforms, which added to their appearance.
The highlight of the Bands school activities was
a record album of the numbers played in their Annual
Spring Concert, which was especially dedicated to
the Humes Alumni. The program follows:

To you, who each day
Take on anew your tasks
Along the lines that speech will go
Through city streets or far out
Upon some mountainside
Wl1ei'e you have blazed a trail
And kept it clearg
To you there comes from all
Xvho use the wires
A tribute for a joh well done.
For these are not just still
And idle strands
That stretch across a country
Vast and wide
Of lile's friendly words
And messages of high import
To people everywhere.
Not spectacular, your usual day,
Nor in the headlines
Except they be of fire, or storm, or flood.
Then a grateful nation
Knows the lull measure
Of your skill and worth
And the fine spirit of service
Which puts truth and purpose
In this honored creed-
