ECI-IOES FROM THE JUNIORS
Hi-ho! 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
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
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."

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
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 ?"

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-

I seemed to notice something familiar about a man in the corner, Harriet, upon seeing me looking at him,

He received our pennies, and without any signs of recognition, he began:

Ltulier and Gezlflemezz:
This is not a serious occasion. 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
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.
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
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,
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.

"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."

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.

We, the members of the class of 1940, being the best class in all the years of the

To wish upon a star brings luck I've been told.
'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.
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.
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.
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.
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.'
But in pictures you'1l be the "glamor boy" of to-
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."
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.
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,

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.
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.
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

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.
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.

THE 1940 VERSION
THE WITCHES SCENE
fWith apologies to Shakespeare's Macbeth for the absence of one of the witches.j
First Witch :
Twice we've heard the school-bell ring.
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.

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.

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.

Red Cross has been in High School, we may feel that we, as founders of this organization, have really
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.
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,
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,
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.

"Punk" LaFon rushed down to the cafeteria and yelled: "Give me a Coca-Cola be-
fore the trouble starts."
Mrs. Warren gave him a bottle, and he em tied it in three gulps.
"Now," gasped "Punk," "give me another before the trouble starts."
Puzzled, Mrs. Warren opened a second bottle for him, asking: "Before the
trouble starts? When is the trouble going to start?"
"It's started now," said "Punk," "I ain't got any money."

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.

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.

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
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.
