Here it is graduation time again! We hate to see our Senior brothers and sisters de- part, but think of the fun we'll have when they're gone. We'll be the Big Shots, then! But let's not "cross our bridges before we come to them." Let's go back to reminiscence in the dim dark cor- ners of the past. Let me clear the cobwebs from my mind. Do you remember when first we embarked on the shores of High School? Goodness, but we were young and afraid then and looked fearfully into the future. But soon the Seniors began to recognize us, and everything went well. We were really sensational as Sophomores. In fact, we have always been quite a sensation. We have in our midst two great actresses, who walked away with important roles in the junior-Senior play this year. "What kind of roles?" you ask. Well, they were lunatics, but of course everyone nows that it takes dramatic ability to play that type. So we take off our hats to june McAnally and Virginia Nell Guy. june also had the honor of being elected cheer leader for the season of '40 fand there was some other girl, too, but I can't recall her name at the momentj. Robert McKnight, our great French student, came in fourth in the French tournament. We are very proud of this fact. We predict that he will graduate first in the class of '4l. Speaking of students, William Earl Brewer is Einstein's successor. In Chemistry laboratory, whenever a test-tube is broken, or a bottle of acid is spilt, you may be sure to find him lurking nearby. They say that in spring a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of love. flf his fancy has been turning like the weather this spring, the young man should be dizzy by now.j The young man in this case is Fred Budde, and his fancy has lightly turned to thoughts of Anne. fOf course, it turned long ago, but this is the first chance I've had to tell you about it.j Not so very long ago, jackson was swept by a great Wind. This same Wind swept into the spotlight a girl in the junior Class. She was known by the name of Scarlett O'Hara for such a long time that it is a wonder she didn't forget that her real name was jane. Always close beside her was Byron "Rhett" Burruss-and quite out of keeping with the real Rhett's character. He is a member of the junior Class. Seen forever "winding up the watch of his wit" is Barton Currie. And as the quotation goes- "by and by it will strike"-so go his witty sayings ffor after he has struck three times-you're outj. The junior Class owes a debt of gratitude to its officers who have guided our ship safely to the port of another school year. We wish to thank them for their interest and for the good work they have done and the fine examples they have set for us. And now to the Seniors-we must confess a spirit of envy, only, next year we'll be in your places, saying, with Emerson: "The port well worth the cruise is near, And every wave is charmed." --GERTRUDE STEGALL. .hh Pulte 2 1 LB- S ALLEN, KATHLEEN .-XKIN, CLARICI-: ANDERSON, ERNESTINE ANDERSON.

Oh, well, a little snooze couldn't do any harm. ff it at 1: sa :M an an Heavens! XX'l1at's this? Here I am out in the middle of No Man's Land. Oh, here comes a car. It looks like an ambulance. Good night! Look who's driving it-Harriet Benton herself! "Hey, Hattie! Slow down!" With a screeching of brakes the ambulance came to a stop. "No time for greetings!" she gasped. "Hop into the back and hold his hand!" Obeying orders, I scrambled into the back, wondering who "he" was. Well, there lay Walter Frankland, almgpt unconscious. but barely audible sounds were coming from his lips. "Psst, Harold, let me see your third pro em. Then amid a grinding of gears we bucked off. I cringed as she shifted into second and, with a noise louder than the retort of Big Bertha, jerked into high, and off she went. At the hospital fshe nearly threw us out when she stoppedj, we were met by two attendants who turned out to be none other than NX'alter Underwood and Kenneth Wfooten. After getting our patient settled and writing letters to his family, Harriet and I left the hospital. "Come on," she said, "let's drop over to Lawrance Dunne's and Charles Hargrove's place." As we uwlfed on fthank heavenj, I said, "How in the world did you happen to come over here, Hattie ?" "X5Uell," she said, "that's a very touchy subject, but truthfully it was that horrible old binominal theorem. Here YNY 2II'U nllw. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the "place" was a cafe called "Larry's and Charlie's Guzzling Galley." The floor show was going in full swing, and Louella Wills, Olamaie Bryant-Cundiff, Evelyn Hassell, Kath- erine Bond, Celeste Tarhet, Tucky Johnston, Marguerite Lifsey, Emily Sharp, Sara Anne Lankford, and Eloise McCaIlen were at their best. Next came the specialty number of Martha Crook and Carol Armstrong-Oooh! XXflio'da thought it? I seemed to notice something familiar about a man in the corner, Harriet, upon seeing me looking at him, said: "Dont you relnemher him? l"lC'S Harold Yarhro, Who used to be in our class at school. He's lost his mind now. Let's go give him a penny, and he'll reCite the only thing that is left of his long stored up knowledge." He received our pennies, and without any signs of recognition, he began: "A flea and a Fly in a flue, Wfere imprisoned, now what could they do? Said the Hy, 'Let us fleef 'Let us fly,' said the flea. And they flew through a Haw in the Hue." We were sadly nodding our heads and saying, "Tsk, tsk," when suddenly someone yelled, "Bombs!" Darkness descended upon us and we bounded toward the door. I was shoved and beaten upon-BEATEN UPON-BIEATEN UPON, "Wake up, wake up!" I looked up, bewildered-So Myra Evelyn was here, too. "Wake up! It's your time to recite!" I looked sleepily around me. Yes, there they wereg all the class was iust as it used to be. "Hul1?" I answered. "Oh, sure, I must have dozecl off a minute."

Tonight we shall display our wisdom and our dignity, but this morning is dedicated to fun and frolic. It is my pleasant duty to introduce to you the most remarkable class in the history of jackson High School-the Class of 1940. Even in the manner of names this class is unusual. In the first place we have a very interesting menagerie. Some of this group are: a shrewd Fox, a graceful Hart, and a dependable Campbell, all of whom are among the first to reach the cafeteria, when the animals are being fed. As re resentatives of royalty and high dignitaries, we have upon the stage today- a King ancljtwo Popes. In selecting the colors for our class it is easy to see that White, Greene, and Brown should be chosen. During our long and tiresome journey through many dry books, we have been fortu- nate in having alw.ays with us a pleasant Camp near a calm Poole with refreshing Wells and a delightful Vineyard not far away. When we decide to build our Hall of Fame, surrounded by a beautiful Wall, we shall find that we have in our class a Carpenter, who is fully capable of erecting the building, and another workman, who has never been known to Fail. It is very pleasant to remember that if we should at any time become entangled in the Webb of circumstance, we can certainly get out by hook or by Crook, especially since we have always a Budde near at hand to help us. As we look over the names on our class roll we are reminded of Shylock's words: "A Daniel come to judgment! Yea, a Daniel!", for we have among our number two Daniels and one justice. Finally, just to show that our class is prepared for every emergency, I call attention to the fact that we have provided for even the end of life's journey, since during four long years we have constantly had with us our Tooms. I said at first that we are a very remarkable class. Perhaps our greatest success is due to the fact that even in our freshman year, we learned to say Noe. Betsy taught us how. Maybe Richard Steele was thinking of a girl like her when he said, "To love her is a liberal education." These are just a few of our class celebrities. Others will be mentioned as the pro- gram goes forward. Friends of jackson High School, in the name of the Class of 1940, I welcome you to our Class Day. ,ng I fm S9 Y crivlrrlg-:L CLASS CDRATION G Mythr ar cl Clarriml Heritage A myth is an account of the deeds of a god or a hero which pertains to an historical event or explains some superstition. Man in the early days before there was any true science, saw the sun and the moon, and, being unable to explain them in any other way, called them chariots of fire that were driven by Apollo and Diana, who were brother and sister. We study myths for at least four reasons. First, because they have had a deep and lasting influence upon the world's literature. We can hardly understand the hundred great authors, such as Shakespeare, Milton, and Lowell, without being familiar with the myths of Greece and Rome. Second, the gods and heroes of the early days have also played a great part in music. The very word "music" pays tribute to the Muses, an mythology tells how many musical instruments were invented. The story of Orpheus and Eurydice formed the theme of the first great opera. This myth is also the title of a great solo and duet by Gluck. Other myths, too, have been put into song by great musicians. The greatest of all musicians, Richard Wagner, in very many of his twenty operas employs the myths of his native north land-particularly the story of Siegfried. Also, these tales have influenced the wonderful painters and sculptors of the ages. In the third place, these stories, sometimes containing a kernel of allegorical truth, are read for amusement and for their striking plots and remarkable characters. Fourth, myths are a very important link with the past. They explain how our ancient forefathers lived, and many recount strange things in the past. Even our own language is full of words come from myths, such as "janitor" and "january," which come from Janus, the two-headed god of the Romans. We may find myths in very many kinds of writings in every land. There are first, the ancient documents written by Homer, Virgil, and Ovid. Later on, such men as Geoffrey Monmouth collected mythical legends and put them into books. Poetry is full of classical allusions, and many of our figures of speech are from myths. In advertising there is frequent recourse to myths. There is a car named for the speedy messenger of the gods, Mercury, and auto radiators are adorned with figures of swift Grecian runners. There is a cement named for an ancient strong man, and the term "vulcanizing," a process of treating rubber, comes from the Roman god of fire, Vulcan. In conclusion, myth-making still fascinates modern writers. They may not believe, as the old myth-makers did, in the tales they tell, but they are delighted with their cre- ations, and often their readers are delighted, too. joel Chandler Harris put myths into the mouth of his Uncle Remus, Lord Dunsany has told tales of the gods of Pegana- his own invention, and Sir james M. Barrie's Peter Pan is familiar to everybody-the name recalling quaintly Pan, the Greek god of nature. 1 hp.-, -51:11, -- , ,C LA as. D A pngv JH CLASS I-IISTGRY QWith apologies to Kay Kyserj FRANCES ETHERIDGE - MARY NELLE WHITE Prof: "Morning, folks, how y'all? "Today's program is being broadcast in the deep south, from my ole Alma Mater, jackson High School. "Folks, this morning we want to have a little get-together and find out something about what this class has done for the past four years-if anything. "Now, if Miss Mary Nelle White will step right up to the microphone, we'll sure thank you for some first-hand information. "Honey-chile, in yo' opinion, what's the best class that ever graduated from ole jackson High?" M. N.: "Why, 1940." Prof.: "That's right, honey-chile, that's right." "Now, just who had the distinction of being elected president of this wonderful class in the Freshman year?" M. N.: "Leslie Traughber, I believe." Prof: "Leslie Traughber as president was right. The office of Vice-President was filled by Betsy Noe, and joe Ewing served as Secretary. "Miss White, can you tell me who was editor-in-chief of the freshman publication, 'The Cub' ?" M. N.: "Bettylu Carpenter." Prof: "Class ?" Class: "Molly Vineyard." Prof: "Molly Vineyard is right. Bettylu Carpenter was assistant editor." Prof: "And now before we leave the freshman year in the junior High building, can you tell me which of our lovely freshman girls was chosen by popular vote as queen of junior High's May Festival?" M. N.: "jane Helen Todd." Prof: "That's absolutely right. "ln the fall of 1937 we enrolled at High School, and bringing along with us the characteristic conceit of so homores, we lived up to each and every one of our high ideals and dreams. Since our class secretary, joe Ewing, left town, we were forced to elect a new one. Russell Birmingham was elected by a large majority. These oliicers were kept throughout the rest of our high school days. Miss Etheridge carried three of her students, Camille Poole, Maxine Brown, and Warren Fox, to the Latin Tournament in Memphis. We were one of the most successful classes ever to pass from the sophomore grade. Notwithstanding our social and literary abilities, we also excelled former sophomores in our athletic ability. The following boys, who were later to meet their fame on the gridiron joined the already famous football team-Bill Voegeli, Tommy Smith, Lawrence Bradley, Bill Dowdell, Bobby McKinney, 'Pimk' LaFon." Prof: "As we enter upon the history of the junior year, let's pep the program up with some of our famous right and wrongers. just answer right or wrong to the follow- ing statements: ACT ,Y IVITIES CLASS HISTORY Ccontinuedj "The following othcers served the class through both the junior and Senior years: President Leslie Traughber, Vice-President Betsy Noe, Secretary Russell Birmingham." M. N.: "Right" Prof: "That's right, you're right." Prof: "Molly Vineyard played the lead in this year's junior-Senior play, 'Lunatics at Large'." M. N.: "Right," Prof: "That's wrong. Molly Vineyard had the lead in last year's play, 'Happiness Ahead'." Prof: "The most outstanding football star of 1938 was a member of the junior Class and was none other than Tommy Smith." M. N.: "Right." Prof: "That's right, you're right. Tommy was selected a member of the All-State Team." Prof: "And now let's follow this class through their Senior year and test your knowledge of their last and most enjoyable year. Probably the most exciting event of 1939 was the Golden Bears' 7-6 victory over Austin High of Chicago." M. N.: "Right" Prof: "That's right, you're right." Prof: "Another interesting event concerning the football team was the P.-T. A.'s Womanless Wedding. Can you name some of the boys participating?" M. N.: "Ben Seward, Dentis Walker, Horace Geyer, and Lynville Holly." Prof: "Miss White, I've been told that Bobby McKinney and 'Punk' LaFon are the only boys to have played on all four of jackson High's four successive Champion- ship Teams." M. N.: "Right," Prof: "According to Mr. Oman you're right. "As the end of our last year draws near we find it necessary to select certain com- mittees and what not to look after the details of every graduating class. Bettylu Carpen- ter was selected as Editor-in-Chief of our Senior publication, 'The Tatler'." M. N.: "Right," Prof: "And now your last question. The Senior Class of jackson High School has decided to stay another year up here, in the hope that they can learn more." M. N.: "Professor, I'm afraid that's not for me to say." Prof: "Class ?" Class: "NO!!!" Prof: "It seems that the No's have it: so as this the 1940 graduating class of jackson High School starts on life's journey may I say-'We'll be thinking of you, and s'long everyb0cly'." fha page 35 JAX 1 f' I s , Q L as S D A page 36 POEM MARGUERITE WEBB Time: 50 years hence. Scene: Marguerite in an old rocking-chair. The snow is falling so softly And here I am snug and warm, Patching away on this old quilt That is so tattered and worn. Alas, what quilt can this be? fThe day it was made is long pastj Why, it's the friendship quilt given me By my graduation class. Though my eyes are dim and weak, These names are familiar to me. Why, here's that class-mate so meekg Oradale Smith's name I see. And that blond athletic Max Hefley, Who was so much in love With a dark-haired girl named Marie- fThey acted like turtle-dovesj. And here's the name Nell Stratton, Certainly a chatterbox, And that wizard of four years of Latin Virginia Bumpus, with her fair locks. And here's the teacher's No. 1 pest, That yelling jerry Tillman: A Beech Bluff boy did his best. At Easter, to please Marietta Dillon. This name reminds me of basketball- Our Richie Davidson played her share, And this refers to a lad so tall- Bob Kuhlman, with his "St. Louis" air. Here's brown-eyed Dana Leggett's nameg With Duncan she was always seen. Bill Dowdell and Tommy Smith gained fame Starring on our football team. And here is the name of a skillful cook- Anne Noel might have written a Home Ec Book. This is the signature of a lad so slow- That unobtrusive Pershing Moore. To missionary lands, Edna Earle Parker wished to go In the history class, Wayne Bales was a bore. fContinued on Page 421 CTIVITIES CLASS WILL JANE HELEN TODD We, the members of the class of 1940, being the best class in all the years of the high school, do make, publish, and declare this, our last will and testament. To the junior Class we shall leave almost all of our intelligence-our forged excuses, our ability to sign our test papers, report cards, and anything else that has to be signed. To the Sophomore Class we bequeath our dignity, poise, and sympathy, along with our hopes that they will get by as well as we did. Bobby McKinney leaves his manly physique and his clipped head to Cecil Shelby and wants him to become a football hero. Hilda Owen leaves her ever-present chewing gum to Virginia Nell Guy. Rosetta Palmer leaves her cute brogue to be copied by anybody who thinks she can. Clyde Sewell leaves his crooning voice for Leonard Sims and Robert King to scramble over, and as the best man wins, may he become a second Bing. To Mack Whitaker, Van Young bequeaths his E's and E-l-'s. Gid Wray declares that his earnest desire is to bequeath to Morgan McDonald his 6 feet 2. Horace Geyer leaves his lady friends behind, to any who wants to be bothered. Ben Seward bequeaths his good looks to brother Kirby. Mary Blanche Crider leaves her ability to stick with Latin four years to any sopho- more that is game enough to try it. Hugh Truex leaves his place in the band to Edwin Monroe. To Lucille Reasonover, Nell Foust bequeaths her football walk. Roy Ferguson leaves his unsurpassed ability to run out of gas to Dave McCutcheon. Margaret Fowlkes names Gertrude Stegall heir to her blonde beauty. Polly Mount leaves her pretty enchanting eyes to all the would-be juliets of the junior Class. jane Harlan bequeaths her willowy grace to any junior that wants it. I To the poor insigniticants in the ranks of the juniors and sophomores, Russell Birmingham eaves his ability to maintain a scholastic standing without those hours of torment which we commonly brand as study. Mary Dove Ripley leaves her quiet ways to Frances Long. Marjorie Warmath leaves herewith and forevermore her "daily letter" to Carol Christopher. To Lynn Fussell, Carl Fussell leaves his neat appearance. Maxine james leaves her long, black, curly hair to Marjorie Lasley. Robert McGowan can't leave high school without leaving his brilliancy in Latin to Walter Underwood. LaVerne Dees wills her long strides to Rachel Winston. Sam Williams leaves his winning ways to W. C. Stricklin. Lastly, we do appoint our Class President, Leslie Traughber, as executor of this, our Last Will and Testament. In witness whereof, we do set our seal on this the 24th day of May, 1940.

'Tis a strong belief that is ages old, When all of us were very small, Each of us chanted this magic call "Star light, star bright, First star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might Have this wish, I wish tonight." And all through the years, I, just as you, Have wished upon stars, and the wishes came trueg So when I was told, some gifts to bring, I went back to the stars, a song to sing, To ask them to give to each of you, Whatever would make your dreams come true. Some special gifts they sent to me, And here they all are for you to see. J. NIEAL BLACKNALL This motorcycle is for Neal. He'll look so handsome on this wheel. And in the time he's saved from his paper route, I-Ie can take Mrs. Jones' little daughter out. JANE HELEN TODD Jane Helen, to you, dear, this golden crown, I bring- - You're such a fit queen for a certain young "KING" Now, please, don't be angry if I've spilled the beans-- For he's a fit "KING" for the choicest of queens. BURTON GILLMAN Somebody gave me this nice white suit To give to you-Now isn't it cute? It was made to order by a pretty little "Taylor." But it's for a soda jerker, not for a sailor. NANCQY SMITH Nancy, here's a reading glass For scanning the notes you got in class. If they're anonymous, then you can tell who, And also whether they are false or true. FRANKLIN OUTLAN To Pete, I give this little rubber baby, Some day you'll be a famous doctor-maybe. 'Tis something you can practice on 'Til medical mysteries upon you dawn. MARTHA FRANc12s Roisisms To you, Sister, I bring this comb- So that your stray locks will never roam. And you'II always have at your beck and call Your Charles--handsome, dark, and tall. w JACK PULLEY Here, Jack, is a ticket to Hollywood, Out there, I'm sure that you'll make good. In Jackson you've been our "secret sorrow.' 1 But in pictures you'1l be the "glamor boy" of to- fI'1Ol'I'OW. GERALDINIi PRENZEL Since we know that Geraldine Riding to the hounds is never seen, I've here for her this little box, Inside of which, she'll find her "FOX." LIZSLIE TRAUGHBER This "vitamin B" is for our President- In every respect he's a hundred percent. I'm sure these drops will make him grow 'Til he's quite caught up with Betsy Noe. R12BifccA LIETT Little Becky is so sweet and quiet. In her presence, we sound like a riot. So here's a loud speaker-'If through it she'll sing, I'm sure she'll cause a commotion at Lambuth and King. ima page :m AY I C T I V I T I E S fiuimluhnl-I.. a.

FRANCES ETHERIDGI5 AND LAVERNE MAYS 'Twould be a shame if gorgeous hair Like yours, should ever be less fair. So here's a rare, exclusive rinse, To help preserve its natural tints. JAMEs O'CONNOR With girls, James O'Connor is as quiet as can be, So I give him this record, "Does Your Heart Beat for ME?" Since he'll not talk, himself, I'm sure it would Work wonders if played where 'twould do the most good. HELEN DAVIDSON Helen, dear, this trumpet new Should be a lot of help to you. While il might not reach every Smith, It's fine to call a Gabriel with. LARRY JONES AND ROGER MENzIEs For Larry and Roger, our basketball stars, Whose fame, already, has spread far beyond Mars, I give this rule book for your personal use, Done especially for you by Director John Muse. MARTHA ALEXANDER For Martha, I have here some ad-hesive tape, Because from love's trials she's found no escape. You and Tommy looked ro cute together, May this patch up all breaks, forever and ever. DENTIS WALKER For you from the stars, I have a nice gift- An airplane-to Milan it will give you a lift. When you soar with your girl through the thin Stratosphere, Put on a show for us, who will be watching from here. MARTHA BUMPUS For Martha, I've a clever book- To teach her how and what to cook. And with it goes this rolling pin To help her maintain discipline. JIMMY HARRINGTON Beefy, I give you this re-ducing pill, To help you improve on your jitterbug skill. Although the results may not readily show, I assure you I've used them, and so-I know. And now I'm done, and so must say, "Good-bye, a fond good-bye, my dears." May health and wealth and happiness Be yours throughout the years. May good luck be your constant friend, Give you a smile for every sigh- And may these gifts help you recall Our happy years at JACKSON HIGH. - We Q J New page 39 f .

Twice we've heard the Seniors sing. Now 'tis time to call the fates, And learn the future of these class-mates. First Witch: Round about the cauldron go, Long-dead Latin in we throw. Geometry with all its angles, Algebra with all its tangles, The little of Chemistry that we got--- All these we throw into the pot. Second Witch: A bit of history for Miss Allie's sake In the pot we broil and bakeg An eye of Spanish, a toe of French Off your knowledge we shall pinch: A budget of typing, an Englis theme, The victory of your football team. Thus we take your learned chaudrons For the ingredients of our cauldron. First Witch: Oh, well done, Sister, I commend your pains, Everyone shall share the gains: And now about the cauldron swing Like elves and fairies in a ring. All: Double, double, toil and trouble, Fire burn and cauldron bubble. Second Witch: Hail, class president of 1940: Now, you look proud and lordly, But tarry and hear what we have to sayg Then perhaps you'll not be so gay. For the future of your noble class Is simply the outgrowth of your ast, And though we're witches up-to-daate, We predict strictly by the fates. First Witch: In this bubble, I see a small, slight figure on the school lawn, it is gray-haired Nancy Aycock. She is making a bon-fire of the Latin "ponies" collected from her pupils' lockers. Second Witch: The scene changes. New York-lo! I see the hurrying bustle of a great city at Christmas time, and in a little shop in the Latin Quarter, Dorothy johnson is frantically composing last-minute jingles for her jovial Christmas Cards. page 40 CTIVITII-E-Sr First Witch: Second Witch: First Witch: Second Witch: First Witch: Second Witch: First Witch: Second Witch First Witch: Second Witch: First Witch: Second Witch: First Witch: Second Witch: First Witch: Second Witch: First Witch: P R of PHQE C Y In a huge arena in Madrid, the most renowned matador in all Spain is found to be none other than your own Ray jones, who learned the art of bull-fighting on his Madison County farm. Dots and dashes! Lots of fiashes! It's incredible, but your unob- trusive class-mate, Robbie Ann Richards, is known as the second Walter Winchell. I see the beautiful and petite figure of Catherine Rush, presenting her famous lecture, "Rush's Rapid Weight Reduction." Along the highways and by-ways, we see posters bearing William Allen's picture, advertising Palmolive soap for that "school-boy" com- plexion. Fifteen years hence-that studious, book-worm, Martha Estes, has at last broken away and taken a leisurely vacation trip to romantic Hawaii. What's this? A woman bus-driver! Yes, it's Virginia Lawrence, driving the Madison County school bus from Huntersville to jackson. You will be glad to know that Claude Yarbro has taken Mr. john- son's position as geometry teacher, daily reminding his pupils that, "If you know geometry, it's awfully simple, but, if you don't, it's simply awful." Alas! A streak of red! A shrill siren! It's a fire-engine-and a lady Hre-chief! Why, it can't be-but it is-your calm and never hurrying Martha Blackwell on her way to a three-alarm fire. After fifteen years, an eminent psychologist has convinced Peggy Patterson that all her complaints are imaginary. Flash! Hollywood.-The third production of "Gone With the Wind" has just been released, starring Bobby Holt as Rhett Butler and Maxine Brown as Scarlett O'Hara. Washington! Distinguished Thomas Evan Holder is being inaugurated as forty-fifth president of the United States. Demure Pat McClintock is yet the same. When she becomes disgusted with her sleepy-headed French students, her reproach is always the same, "Now, pupils, when I was a girl, we didn't date on school nights." Time Marches On! On the lawn of "Fountain of Youth" Sanitorium, Bill Voegeli is performing his daily gymnastic routine in a hope to build up his frail and weak body. Twenty years hence many of you girls will be treating your graying hair with Ouida Wright's famous "Guaranteed Colorbackf' Out of Virginia Meacham's quiet and reserved manners will grow the alert and competent secretary who will fulfill the ancedote, "She Married Her Boss." I hear the familiar clamor of Coney Island! And would you believe it -your quiet old class-mate, Helen jones, is "barker" for one of Ripley's "Believe It or Not" shows.

Five years hence-Betty Whitehead and her jiving jitterbugs are playing their thirtieth week on Broadway. Doubtless, many of you will attend the 1960 World's Fair, and there, Margaret Morgan's Flee Circus will be in the Hall of Natural Arts. Because of her intense love of children, Jessie Gray Sykes has accepted a position as head-matron of St. Peter's Orphanage in Memphis. Through dim lights and low voices, I hear the haunting strains of "St, Louis Blues" sung as only that willowy and glamorous torch-singer, Anne Thompson, can sing it. Double, double, toil and troubleg Fire burn and cauldron bubble. That's our version of your fates, Good luck and farewell, '40 class-mates. POEM Ccontinuedj Here are two musical knights of our class: One, Frances Rodenbaugh, a bel-lyist, And Lynville Holley, who played Slardurt unsurpassed To charm his Eva Lois. Here's Faye Richardson's name in shorthand My knowledge of which is still quite able. I'm told she wrote in signs Love-letters to her 'lClark Gable." I find here the name of Ambrose Reid Who boasted his Scotch descent: And also with Dorothy Wright, I proceed, Her time with the football boys was spent. Here is the name of that Vantreese lad, In a lumber-jacket, he was usually clad, On it were Cu id's arrows and darts, One of which dueeply ierced his heart. Doris Stallcup, a tall, Sark-haired lass, A member of my shorthand class, With Mildred Hall she was usually seen: They made a gay and friendly team. Here in the corner, I find this last name- james Watlington, a Romeo to the sophomore dames. And now as I sit here old and gray With these memories of my graduation day, My heart beats faster and swells with pride That it was my fortune to sit side by side With classrmates so esteemed and lordly As my illustrious class of 1940. ACTIVITIES JCDKES Having learned from the newspaper that fish is excellent brain food, Margaret Moffatt wrote to the editor: "Dear Sir: Seeing that you say that fish is good for the brain, please advise me as to what kind of fish I'd better eat." The editor replied: "Dear Miss Moffatt: judg- ing from your letter, I should suggest a whale." Richard Turner was leading a donkey past an army camp. As a soldier wanted to have some fun with Dick, he said: "Sonny, why are you holding so tight to your brother?" Richard replied, winking an eye: "So that he won't join the army." "It all Addie Sue Terry Qto her boy friendj: seems to me that sheep are the stupidest of creatures." Boy friend Qabsent-mindedlyj: "Yes, lamb."

"Pat" Foster fearnestlyj: "Louise, that's a wicked lie, but please tell it to me again." As Ernest Hefley walked into a barber shop, a bootblack said, "Shine yo' shoes, boss?" "Noi" snapped Ernest. "Shine 'em so yo' can see yo' face in 'em," urged the bootblack. "No, better not," persisted Ernest. "Coward," mumbled the bootblack, as he turned away. Census taker fto Elizabeth Meeksj: "And in what state were you born, Miss Meeks?" Elizabeth Meeks: "Unless my memory fails me, I was born in the state of ignorance." Census taker: "Obviously. And how long have you lived there, please?" Wayne Lassiter: "My feet burn like the dick- ens. Do you think that a mustard bath would help them?" Randall Green: "Sure thing. There's noth- ing better than mustard and hot dogs." Hazel Johnston: "Gretchen Wall went to an Wa astrologer to find out the best time to get mar- riedf' Marie Ingram: "What did he say?" Hazel Johnston: "Oh, he took one look at her and told her to grab the first chance." james Boswell's mother said to Mrs. McNeil: "I've got a freak out at my place-a two-legged goat." Mrs. McNeil: "Yes, I know. He had a date with Susie the other night." Sarah Barnes: "L P. Lee sent me some Howers last night." Marie Ingram: "Fresh ?" Sarah: "A little, but his roses evened things up. Rhea Dabney fdisplaying skull in biology class, : "Here you see the skull of a chimpanzee, a very rare specimen.

There are forty-one members in the jackson Hi-Y Club, which meets every Monday night at the Y. M. C. A. building at 7:15. Mr. D. E. Ray and Mr. E. S. jackson are sponsors. The jackson Club has been of very great influence at High School. It has tried to put a stop to the things around the school that tended to drag down the school's name, and with the help of the student body, it has succeeded in its undertaking. The West Tennessee Hi-Y Conference was held in jackson last November the 25th and 26th. Two of our members were highly honored by being elected officers of the West Tennessee Conference. They were Bill Dowdell, President, and Cedric johnson, one of the Vice-Presidents. 'X ITIES. GIRL RESERVES Fin! Row: Traughber, Herron, Guy, Russell, Norton, McCallen, Culbertson, D. Bond.

Eight boys from the Senior Class had the privilege of attending the jackson Rotary Club this year as junior Rotarians. Each boy attended for a period of four weeks. At the end of the fourth week, each boy made a brief speech to the Rotarians. The purpose of the Rotary Club's doing this is to ac- quaint these boys with Rotarian ideas and idealsg thus this experience is one of both advancement and enjoyment, and the boys consider it a great honor and opportunity. The junior Rotarians appreciate this privilege given them by the Rotary Club and hope that the boys that serve in the future will receive as much benefit as they have this year. l4T THE JUNIOR RED CROSS jackson High School was enrolled 100W in the junior Red Cross this year. Many contributions of money, food, and clothing were made by the High School students, and much good work was done. If as much real progress is shown in future years as has been shown in the four years that the junior Red Cross has been in High School, we may feel that we, as founders of this organization, have really accomplished something. 'S Page so ES. D. A. R. CONTEST The D. A. R. Contest was held in the auditorium on the night of May 21. The contestants were: Nancy Smith, Margaret Pope, Dorothy johnson, Roy Ferguson, Frank- lin Outlan, and Bobby Holt. Honorable mention went to Rhea Dabney, Russell Birm- ingham, Allen Fail, Marguerite Webb, Susie McNeil, Marietta Dillon, Edna Earle Parker, Ann Thompson, and Sarah Barnes. A most interesting program illustrating phases in early American life was presented. Scenes of the Puritans, the Dutch and the Cavaliers portrayed the composite element in America, selections at the piano by Ann Thom son displayed the aesthetic taste in music, and the stately minuet illustrated the social, side of life. Those participating in the minuet were: Nancy Green Crook, Susie McNeil, Martha Alexander, Betsy Noe, Pat McClintock, Martha Frances Robbins, Rhea Dabney, Ben Seward, Bill Dowdell, William Allen, Hugh Truex, and Tommy Smith. iii SENIOR BAN OUET One main feature of graduation was the Senior banquet. This was held on May 25 in the beautifully decorated Gold Room of the New Southern I-Iotel.' A delightfully interesting program was presented and was thoroughly enjoyed, since this was the last social activity of the Class of '40, -.t..... JUNIOR-SENIOR DANCE The juniors honored the Seniors with a dance at the National Guard Armory on May 24, following the graduating exercises. john Paul Morris, president of the junior Class, and his capable committee, were responsible for the success of the affair. A large crowd of dancers enjoyed the occasion, and it was not until the wee small hours of the morning that they very reluctantly departed, Til FRENCH TOURNAMENT The Regional French Tournament was held at Lambuth College on March 30 with fifteen schools participating. From jackson High, Jessie Gray Sikes won second place and received a medal. Other students of our school received honorable mention. These were Irene King, Martha Frances Robbins, Laverne Mays, Robert McKnight, and Mar- garet Pope. All of these were eligible for the State Finals that were held in Nashville on May 11.

SPEAKING of SPCDRTS The jackson High athletic activities for the 1939-40 season have been among the best that the school has ever had. This success is due to the patient work of Coaches Oman, Pace, and Baxter, along with the exhaustive training of the players and the improved facilities of Rothrock Stadium. But along with all these improvements we can't forget the great interest and the enthusiasm of the citizens of jackson and the loyal students. The major sports have been Football, Basketball, and Track, all of which were highly successful. jackson High has placed several of its players on all the All-Star Teams that have been selected in football. There was no outstanding star in basketball. All were good and the cooperation was fine in every game. This cooperation is what made their season very successful. The Bears in their second year of track have been very successful. Under the tutelage of Coach Clar- ence Baxter they have not been defeated and are entered in the regional meet. In the years to come jackson High cannot help having championship teams in all sports if the in- terest, enthusiasm, and good coaching of the past season continues. With all this success and support we hope that the Bears will branch out into other sport activities. 592 TICS ggggg FGOTBALL Firxl Roux' Forrester, Smith, Holley, LaFon, K. Seward, Currie, J.

For the fourth consecutive year jackson Golden Bears came through with a championship team. In ten regular scheduled games, with the strongest teams in West Tennessee, the Bears were not defeated and were scored on only twice. The Bears were selected to play in the West Tennessee play-off but were not able to play because the season had been ofhcially closed by the city commissioners before the play-off was to be held. Instead of playing in the West Tennessee playoff the Bears played Austin High of Chicago for the North-South championship. In this game, played at Rothroclc Stadium, jackson was victorious by a score 7 to 6. At the close of the season jackson High placed several players on the All-Star teams of West Ten- nessee and two on the All-State squad. The Bears have built up the reputation all over this section for having clean players and good sportsmen. That is quite an honor and a good credit for the school. This year the Bears lose twelve of their best players, but next year their places will be filled by very capable juniors and Sophomores. With the coaching staff of Oman, Pace and Baxter, and the enthusiasm and support of the students, they are sure to give us another championship team. fmt page 55 TAT:-1 LETS TAKE A LOOK AT THE REAL FACTS RIDGELY ..,....,..... ,4...,AATAA Opponents jackson 0 72 COLLIERVILLE .A.A......... ,v...... 0 5 1 TRENTON ,,..............A...,..., ........ 0 33 WHITEHAVEN ...........,. ,....... 0 21 UNION CITY ......A..A.... ........ 7 26 HUMES ...,....A..........A..,. ....... 0 19 RIPLEY ................I...,,.A..... ...,.... 7 47 COVINGTON .,..,...... ...,.... 0 19 DYERSBURG ................... ........ 0 34 MEMPHIS TECH ,......... ,,..... 0 1 3 LEXINGTON ...... .... , ,. ................A...,,...........A.......,,..A...............,,.........,...,...........,.......

Boys' basketball at jackson High has been more successful this year than in the past few years. Wlien the season began, there was not very much interest shown. But the boys settled down to strenuous practice and in a short time began beating every team that they met. The Bears did not lose a home game during the entire season. Fine cooperation and team work ac- complished this. Toward the last of the season the Bears started a winning streak and won the last ten games. This aroused interest all over this end of the state. Wlien the Fourth District tournament rolled around the boys were all set to go with high hopes of being champions. They defeated Mercer in the first round. Then they came up against Trenton, the Gibson County Champs, who defeated them by a good score. Next year the Bears will have another great team. They lose jones and I-lefley, but have several fine prospects to till these vacancies. So we hope to see them the West Tennessee Champions next year.

The jackson High girls' basketball team had a very unsuccessful year. This was due mainly to the small players. Coach Muse had a very difficult task in selecting the year's "crop," but came through with Magdaline Harber and Becky O'Dell, forwardsg Marie Martin, Richie Davidson, and Martha Bum- pus, guardsg Robbie Foust, Catherine Watkins, and Lilly Williams, centers. Lois Bennett, a very good beginner from junior High School, showed very promising ability as a forward. The Lady Bears' biggest thrill was the tournament. Although the girls lost, they learned very many interesting plays which will prove a big help for the team next year. This is the first girls' team to receive sweaters. Those receiving sweaters were: Richie Davidson, Martha Bumpus, Robbie Foust, who was Captain. I-Iere's hoping Coach Muse has better luck with his future teams.
