In behalf of the Senior Class of 1944 I bid you welcome. For some twelve years I have looked forward to this day. This morning I am not so sure that I am happy about the occasion. In past years the president of a graduation class might have spoken about how those going out from such an event as this are to take a place in the Nation's industry, or about how some would con- tinue their education along the lines of their individual interests. It is not that way today. Almost overnight our country has decreed that boys are now men and that girls are now women. We are called upon to do our part in a cause which stands before us as both a great challenge and a great opportunity forservice. We have attended high school as boys and quickly have become men, many of whom are soon to train for military service on land, on sea, or in the air. High school girls are quickly becoming women, many of whom are soon to serve in uniforms of the Army or Navy, to become nurses, or to carry on many other types of work which will release a man for a fighting position. As we gather here in peace and comfort to graduate, it is with the realization that our country is one of the few in which there is no fear of falling bombs. Our future and that of our country and our way of life depends upon the outcome of this great conflict. In this critical situation the youth of America can be relied upon to fulfill every expectation. There are many things that affect our lives over which we have little or no control, yet there are import- ant factors to which we shall hold fast. Our pledge is that, come what may, our faith will be unshaken, our interest will be sustained, and our work will be continued at whatever tasks we are assigned. We who graduate from high school today will have no control over many conditions. Yet we do have control over our attitude toward the problems facing all, and it is in this attitude that our pledge is made. The fact that this graduating class selected me as it president commends me to you as its repre- sentative. On behalf of the class of 1944 I thank you for the great opportunity you have afforded us in providing a good school for us to attend which is surely ample evidence of your faith and interest in us. CLHSS CRHTION JOHN D, GRAHAM TI-IG GOLDEN HGG OF HITIGRICH Every nation has declared a golden age and dreamed of its coming in lofty poetry, romantic song, radiant truth, and confident proclamation. Israel has given to the world the golden age of prophetic truth and hope, Greece, the golden age of culture, Rome, the golden age of powerg Italy, the golden age of art and beauty, England, the golden age of literature, France, the golden age of democracy, when upon every public edifice were inscribed three words: ''Liberty-Equality-Fraternity." America will endure long enough to incorporate its hopes and aims into the constitution of its national life and the fabric of civilization around the wide, wide world. The first stepping stone to this golden age upon these shores is government. Our government stands upon the secure foundation of liberty-liberty for self-development, national expansion, the pur- suit of happiness and unity. Human progress follows along the lines of free government. Toleration is another step upon which America will move on to its golden age. It involves freedom of conscience, for, as the poet says, "Whatever creed be taught or land be tread, Man's conscience is the oracle of God." The moral law must be a foundational principle of the golden age, and thus are protected the dignity and rights of the individual. justice for men in every area of life will also assure us the day of golden dreams, for in Disraeli's words, "justice is truth in action." Many are the attributes of the golden age, and after the long list is well considered, the last word, the cap-stone of the structure, will be brother- hood. Our own poet Edwin Markham expresses the idea of America's to-morrow when he says: "The crest and crowning of all good, Life's final star, is Brotherhood." The dreams of Alfred Tennyson will come true when America shall realize its plan for brother- hood. Of all people our nation is best designed by the manner of its life, its sense of union and free- dom, its belief in justice, its practice of toleration, its trust in democratic government, its faith in God, to lead in this attainment. The American nation can lead the way to the golden age for all the world and bring to pass the hope of the great poet: For I dipp'd into the future, far as human eye could see, Saw the Vision of the world and the wonder that would beg Till the war-drum throbb'd no longer, and the battle-flags were furled In the parliament of man, the Federation of the world. CLHSS HISTORY Donorrrv BURNETTE TI-IG CHRONICLE of the CLHSS of 1944 In the year one thousand nine hundred and forty- one at the season of fading flowers and ripening nuts, there appeared at the portals of jackson High School a band of warriors whom we shall call "Militant Seekers after Knowledge." What the grave and reverent Seniors called them, it were well to leave unmentioned. As a member of this band, the writer of your chronicle will endeavor to bear true witness to the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of what came to be known in the common tongue as the Class of 1944. Having with due form and ceremony and, in some cases, by the skin of our teeth, completed our course at junior High School, we felt persuaded that we could easily take by storm the strong citadel on Allen Avenue, which is commonly called jackson High School. Con- fident of success, we chose as ollicers of our expedition: Billy Moore, Freddie Miller, Ann Caldwell, Jean Taylor and jess Casey. Before laying siege to the Citadel, it seemed the part of wisdom to send out reconnoitering parties. Our para- troopers descended upon the office of the fortress from time to time during the month of August and brought back reports that would have dampened the courage of a band less brave than ours. From these spies we learned that J. H. S. could not be taken at one assault, but cor- ridor by corridor, stairway by stairway, and room by room. A small but determined band boldly attacked ,great Julius Caesar, himself, well entrenched in the Latin Tower, otherwise known as Room 21. To our surprise we found small difficulty in getting in, but getting out was a pony of a different color. Gerunds, Gerundives, and Subiunctives stoutly resisted our attacks, proclaim- ing all the while their watch word: "They shall not pass!" And most of us didn't. Defeated but not crushed, we withdrew strategically to another strong- hold cftlled Modern Languages, where, sad to relate, we fared little better than in Caesar's classical domain. Another wing of our army attacked the well-for- tified position of Biology, only to be routed by an army of strange creatures called "Dinosauria," "Insectivora," and "Crustaceans''-creatures, whose very names we were unable to spell. Still another intrepid band rushed in to storm the Citadel of History. Instead of calling upon Liberty, Madame Roland might well have said: "O History! History! How many crimes have been committed in thy name!" Be that as it may, the way that we were beaten in this struggle was certainly a crime. But these attacks were mere skirmishes by small bodies of troops. Our entire army was gathered together for an assault upon the two strongly fortified positions of Algebra, one in a location called Room 6 and the other in a tower called Room 24. To be sure, the latter location was camouflaged as an abode of History, but sines and co-sines, like murder, will out. Utterly de- feated, many of us retired from the siege, to renew the attack in the heat and discomfort of what is technically known as "Summer School," though 'tis said that Gen- eral Sherman had a better name for it. Another attack by our combined forces was upon the Hydra-headed Monster of English, one of the fiercest defenders of the castle on Allen Avenue. When we lopped off one of these heads labeled "Grammar," an- other called "Themes" threatened to scorch us with its fiery breath: and when we had overcome the "Themes," another horrible head called "Book Reports" hissed an- grily at us. In this attack many of our noble warriors bit the dust. In the second year of the siege our army was re- organized with jimmy Diffee, Lissette O'Rourke, and Tom Voegeli in charge of all operations. In this year we concentrated our forces upon the very strongest posi- tion of the enemy, the stronghold of Geometry. The camp was laid out in triangles, parallelograms, and duodecagons, so that we ran into land mines in the way of surprise quizzes when we least expected them. Many of us failed to obtain a bridgehead on the great philoso- pher's theorem concerning the square on the hypotenuse and all of us felt that the inscription on this fortress should read: "Abandon hope, all ye who enter here." In one thousand nine hundred and forty-three, many of us made attacks on that modern center of warfare, the Commercial Department. Though driven off again and again by the "ack-ack" of the terrible typewriters, most of us came back victorious before the year was over. In this year, too, the enemy employed the aid of chemical warfare, a most outrageous proceeding, it seemed to us: for many of us who had overcome successfully the other methods of defense retreated before the gas attacks of the Lab. - The Amazon Division of our army fGreek for WACSJ made a more or less successful onslaught upon the Castle of Home Economics and became possessed of much information upon such important matters as "How to hold a husband," the favorite recipe being: "Feed the brute!" In the last year of our great siege Billy Moore was chosen to take over the work of Tom Voegeli, who left our ranks to enlist in Uncle Sam's Navy. Naturally we took as our final objective: reaching the summit of the Mount of Graduation. That we who appear before you to-day have reached and held this objective is evident. As your chronicler I shall relate some of our methods in reaching this goal. Some of us have advanced by sheer scholarship and have won the highest decorations for valor. Barbara Zehr, Freddie Miller, and Ann Caldwell are the honor students of our class. Margaret Lankford and Nowell Bingham were awarded medals in the D.A.R. contest. Bobby Coppedge and Dorris Asbury became our poet laureates for 1943 and 1944 respectively. Some of us prevailed on the bloody Gridiron and the Basketball Court: witness Horace Coyne and Paul james, while Tom Vogeli, John D. Graham, Nancy Bumpus, and Emily Carey Griffin did much to urge our Golden Bears on to victory. jess Casey, Hilda Witt, Theresa Ricks, and Frances Seward Wilson kept up the morale of our fighters by providing us with such candy bars as the Ration Board would allow to come our way. During the lull in active operations between Mid- term Exams and Finals the morale of our troops was further improved by the work of such dramatic artists as Dorris Asbury, Freddie Miller, jack Harrington, Rose- mary Williamson, Emily Carey Griffin, Letty jane Luck- man, and Betty Young, who helped to make the junior- Senior Play a success. fContinued on page 501 L.. c, ........

CLHSS POEH1 I weave upon my tapestry, With colors dark and fair, Some represent a lovely dream, Some colors are a prayer, Some colors stand for lonely days, Some stand for happinessg Some are as sombre as a storm, Some soft as a caress. I weave upon my tapestry, I make a brave design. And what I like about it best Is that it's wholly mine. And yet it is not mine alone That I understand For as I weave upon my tapestry Fate truly guides my hand, And as I look back through the haze Of fifty years or more There comes before my very gaze The Senior Class of '44. Surely we were the best of classes So many handsome lads and lasses. For instance, could you find one in books To rival Freddie Miller's looks? And where could you rival Lettie Jane Luckman's art? Or Carl Boon trying to win his fair lady's heart? What is the name in that far distant corner? Oh! yes-I remember, Regina Horner. She was so comely, sweet, and nice. Nearby is Lissette O'Rourke-so prim and precise. Margaret Lankford's gift as a speaker did abound. She was just about the best in town. But let's not forget john D. Graham, our school auctioneer For him we always gave a cheer. Of our seniors in the business world Mona Harris was always in a whirl, Betty jean Allen was a happy Senior NANCY Yarrow Didn't it seem so to you, too? In dear old football, Horace Coyne did shine While james Strawn's flash bulbs made him blind. Now here I find Evelyn Roddy, whose beautiful hair Has certainly caused many people to stare. In Latin, Barbara Zehr did surpass- She was among the best in her class. Robert Shellabarger worked at a filling station I wonder if bi: gasoline war rationed. In the Glee Club Ella Mai Vernon and Hilda Witt For music certainly did their bit. Always into mischief was Polly Brettg I'm sure she caused the teachers to fret. Dick Calhoun I'm sure could fill with ease A place on "Information, Please." Every time Jane Manley did smile The world was made brighter for a while. When a person needed a friend around Rebecca Hawkins could always be found. Mary Love jobe deserved a reward for her work, For in high school she never did shirk. Bonita Gasell was a pretty sight, To look at her was quite a delight. The Bennett twins captured everyone's heart. But we never were able to tell them apart. Although Marie Castellaw was rather small, She was still very dear to us all. Doris Raines never had a case of blues Because she always knew her p's and q's. And now I cease my weaving, With colors dark and fairg I'll say no more about our class- A class beyond compare. But as I dream of days gone by Where each one played his part, The memory of jackson High Lives ever in my heart. - CLHSS PROPHECY MONA HARRIS-Barry SHEARIN Scene: Washroom of Tee-Heed Aircraft Factory. Characters: Rosie the Riveter and Swing-Shift Mazie. Mazie: Golly, this first day has strictly been hard. Look, Rosie, I broke my longest and most cherished finger nail. Rosie: So what! "I gave a finger nail." What kind of slogan is that in comparison to "I gave a son" or a brother or a sweetheart? Mazie: For heaven sakes, I'm not beeling. I just merely said-Oh, skip it! Rosie: Say! Did that cute foreman give you the brush-off? Oh, brother! Blonde tresses et cetera. From now on you might as well keep 'em hidden under that scarf, according to rules, for all the good it does. Mazie: Maybe. But I'd rather have this book of instructions than his attention any time. After all, I'm at Tee-Heed Aircraft to help win the war. Rosie: I agree with you IOOW. For a dizzy sweater girl you've got the right idea. Now, let's have a look at that pamphlet before they decide our place is at home knitting socks instead of riveting airplanes. Mazie: Hey, this can't be the right book. It says: Imlrurtiani' at to lbe Future of the Clair of '44, Rosie: Not really! Let's investigate. I might have scruples about prying into somebody's past, but his future . . . that different. Mazie: You might is right. Um-mum. Listen. This must have been quite a fella. The youth of America will flock to hear the popular lecturer, James Mays, expound his theories on love, court- ship, and marriage. His method of practicing what he preaches, has well fitted him for this work. Jessie George of the snapping black eyes, ten years hence, will still be trying to choose between Joe, Robert and that perfectly woo-onderful sailor man. Josephine Ferguson of Fancy Finger Waves and Company will be presented after ten years of faithful service with a gold plated comb and a half hour off each day in which to comb her hair as much as she wants to. It seems that Stoten Outlan's years spent at local drug stores watching the Babes go by was not in vain. It inspired Stoten to establish a chain of soda fountains at such Jrenir spots as Miami Beach, Daytona Beach, and Atlantic City. Virginia McLeary thought that with shoe-rationing on, the smart thing to do would be to marry a shoe salesman. She will do just that and ten years from to- day will find her still wearing her graduation shoes. Frances Crosson, whose red-haired temperament will win many an argument for the State of Tennessee in Congress, will put the clever Clare Boothe Luce com- pletely out of the picture. The successors to Lum and Abner will be Roy Whitworth, the local farmer, and William Johnston, his blacksmith pal. It seems that since they took over, Kob Korner has developed into a thriving metropolis. Bobby Douglass, the would-be Sergeant York of World War II, will make a name for himself not as a hero, but as the author of a book titled, How lo Condurt a Hiitory Clan, and dedicated with grateful appreciation to his Sr. History teacher. Nancy Yelton, along with Carmen Miranda, will share honors awarded by Secretary of State Cordell Hull for her splendid work in smoothing out the rough spots in our Pan-American Relationship. Anne Shelley will play the organ in a little church around the corner in a large city where her husband will be a widely known pastor. Ten years from now, the most discussed lawsuit of the year will be that of the State of Tennessee veriux Charles Lansden. The state is suing for damages which the highway between Jackson and Atwood suffered while Charles wore it out trying to get Martha Anne to say "Yes," Frances Hilliard, who preferred brunets, but was pursued by tall, blond, and curly haired boys while in high school, will finally assert her preference and marry that remain brunet, Nowell Bingham of oratorical fame, will become the silver "mouthpiece" of notorious Lefty, the Lug. Isabell Reynolds, who in her own sweet, serene way always managed everybody and everything, will surprise her family and friends alike, by becoming one of the many wives of a glamorous Arabian sheik, and will submissively spend the rest of her life gazing from behind the veil according to Arabian customs. Elise Eaves, of the raven locks, will become the ace commentator for Drip Drop Lotion, and will give Mr. Winchell, himself, the run-around with her light- ning tongue and ability to get around fast. Frances Seward Wilson joined the WACS shortly after graduation to be near Private Wallace Wilson. With astounding rapidity, Frances will rise to the rank of Major. She will attribute her success to learning on the J. H. S. Candy Stand to whom and not to whom to sell Hershey Bars. Billy Moore will become a famous research scientist and Ed Tillman will offer his services as a ,"human guinea pig." As you've already guessed, Billy will be searching for the vitamin or whatever-it-is that makes people grow tall. Ray "Acuff" Boone, after returning as the Aviation Ace of America, will sing himself right into being the governor of Tennessee. Jerre Fite will change her mind about arsenic, and settle down to helping the Naval Air Corps keep one of its fliers a happy family man. After years of unsuccessful attempts to win the 100 yard dash in the American Olympics, "easy going" Bruce Campbell will give up and become a stand-in for -of all people-actor Fred MacMurray. The twins, Jimmy and Mac Phillips, will become jewelers of. international renown, but each in his sep- arate business, because not even their brotherly love could make them agree on the merits of "old English" or "block" engraving. Margaret Owens and John L. have had so much fun shopping on Saturday nights that they will agree to shop together for the rest of their lives. The future All-American Football Player, Paul James, will present Miss Nancy Bumpus with a perma- nent pass to all football games in appreciation of her untiring study and understanding of the various football maneuvers. Richard Clayton will be quite a success, at what --we know not--but it rould beibecause he has what it takes to be known as "Delightful Dickie," or because he is sometimes mistaken for "Swoon King Sinatra." Mazie: Wow! Listen to what comes next. "Dear Swing-Shift Mazie: I gave you the wrong book on pur- pose. How's about bringing the Book of Inrtrurlions- with illustrations-over to your house this P.M. fR.S. V.P.J Signed, The Foreman." Will I answer But P.D.Q. Rosie: Wait a minute. Aren't you going to read the future of the rest? Mazie: Here. You read it. Looks like I got a future of my own. fNote: Exit Mazie unwinding the scarf from about her blonde tresses, and letting them fall defiantly about her shoulders, while Rosie helplessly looks on.J GIFTS FUR Tl-IE CLHSS JERRB FITE As is the custom from days of old, Children are dancing around the May Pole.

To the faculty we leave the memory of our bright and intelligent faces. We know they will miss us terribly. To the Juniors we leave our beloved seats in chapel. To the Sophomores we bequeath the untiring patience that we used to put up with the Juniors.

Martha Johnston wants Betty Talkington to have her long curls. To Herschel Simmons, Billy Osborne leaves his ability to write a good D.A.R. paper.

Peggy Wall bequeaths her friendship with Miss Anna to all the Junior girls. Clara Haynes wants Lyda White to have her gorgeous black hair. Mary Virginia Woodard leaves to Emily Ann Dabney her "five by five" physique. John Sledd leaves his sister, Rose Nell, to next year's bookkeeping class since she has been such a help to him. Margaret Bourne falls heir to Chris Cox's sympathy to a newcomer. Sybil Arwood leaves her quiet manner and studious ways to Jane Barton. Jessie Stringfellow leaves her blond hair rinse to Barbara Hussey. George Ann Smith bequeaths her habit of being absent from school to all those "eager-beavers" who come everyday. Billy Marlowe leaves his habit of always having his lessons tto Thomas Shelley. To Margaret Wise, Sara Jane Evans leaves her soft babyish voice. Ida Faye Boone leaves her love of Sophomore Latin to all those who wait 'till their Senior year to take it. Dot Hunt leaves Wayne Rogers her moccasins so that she can slip them off whenever she wants to. Mary Jane Tidwell leaves the advice "Crime Doesn't Pay" to any Junior or Sophomore who thinks he or she can get by with skipping school. Elmer Roddy wills his special privileges of getting into Uncle Sam's Army to "Mush" Smith. Sandra Gasell wills her technique of "curling" her hair to Sharlene McAuley who has wanted it so long. Emmy Carey Griffin leaves her many boy friends to Mary Nell Sinclair. Rachel Chambers leaves her ability to stick with Latin for four years to Jeanette Fuqua. Mary Elizabeth Rainey says that she wouldn't leave her Staff Sergeant from Dyersburg to anyone. Lastly, we do now appoint our class president, Jimmy Diffee, as executor of this our Last Will and Testament. In witness whereof, we do set our seal on this the 26th day of May, 1944.

PsYcH1ATR1sT TO KTREY SEWARD: "Don't you want to know what your dreams mean P" KIRBY SEWARD: "No, I just want to know their phone numbers." When small, Jack Harrington loved soldiers and Annie Jim Goodwin loved painted dolls, Now that they are grown, Annie Jim loves soldiers and Jack loves painted dolls. JosEPH1NE THoRNToN's MOTHER: "What makes you think your young man has matrimonial intentions?" JOSEPHINE THoRNToN: "Well, when we were looking at Easter hats, he tried to convince me I'd look better in a 32.98 model than in one that cost J515.00." Miss ANNA: "Your book reports should be writ- ten in such a manner that even the most ignorant may understand them." JOSEPHINE W'rLLxAMs: "Well, Miss Anna, what part is it you don't understand ?" Angeline Barnes and boy friend, Cason, were re- turning to their seats in the theater after the intermission. ANGELINE fto the lady in an aisle seatjz "Did I step on your toes as I went out ?" "You did," replied the other grimly, expecting an apology. ANGELINE turned to Cason: "All right, Cason," she said, "this is our row." ROBERT RICHARDSON walked into the Navy Depart- ment with a captjains cap on. He also wore a Navy raincoat, which re no insignia. He removed the rain- coat revealing an ensign's stripe on his sleeve. "What are you, anyway?" they asked. d "Why, I'm Ensign Richardson. I'm reporting for uty." "And why the captain's hat?" Oh! Is it a captain's hat?" Richard rejoined. "I didn't know. I just bought my uniform yesterday and I picked out this hat. It was prettier than the plainer ones, and it only cost four dollars more." .- TRAMP: "Could you give a poor fellow a bite?" MILDRED BooNE: "I don't bite, myself, but I'll be glad to call the dog." BETTY YOUNG'S daily prayer: "Dear Lord, I ask nothing for myself 5 but please give my mother a son-in-law."

RACHEL MCLEMORE: "No, but with my looks, personality, and brains I could be." RUTH ANN CAMPBELL was brought before the court one day for wreckless driving. "And so," said the judge, "this is the fifth person y0u've knocked down this year." "Pardon me," said Ruth Ann with much dignity, "the fourth. One of them was the same person twice." JOYCE JOHNSON and MERILYN LEw1s were studying for a history test one day. JOYCE: "What happened in the year 1809?" MERILYN: "Lincoln was born." JOYCE: "Correct, Now what happened in 18l2?" MERILYN fcounting on her fingerslz "Lincoln had his third birthday." RUTH DEES: "Is it true that Lois Smith has a secret sorrow ?" EUDORA FINCH: "Why sure. Hasn't she told you about it yet?" JOYCE BLACKWELL to the porter on a train: "Tell me what is the average tip you get from a passenger on this run?" "One dollar, Ma'am," was the reply. Joyce handed over a dollar bill and the porter im- mediately burst into voluble thanks. "Mam," he said, "you are the Hrst one who has ever rome up to my average." MANAGER: "How long have you been working in this department?" ANNE PARKER: "Ever since I saw you coming down the stairs." CLQSS HISTORY CContinuedD In our steady advance toward the objective of Graduation, we have been heartened and sustained by the efforts of the Girl Reserves with Frances Seward Wilson and jeane Hillman leadersg by the Hi-Y with jimmy Diffee in command and by the junior Red Cross, in which Isabel Reynolds, nresident, has done outstandf ing work. Some of us have reached the summit of the Mount of Graduation by the Distributive Education and Diver- sified Occupations routes, wherein the student learns by doing. Some of us have reached our goals by the second' examination express. But here we are! The long siege is overg the victory has been wong the Citadel of jackson High School has surrendered un' conditionally to the Class of 1944. Here as your chron- icler I cease. The rest of our history must be told in the Annual TATLER with Ann Caldwell and Billy Moore as editors. In closing, let me give you the slogan of our class: "We came, we saw, we conquered."
