Now they flow like rich, red blood from a fresh wound into a crazy, upside-down world of hate and prejudice and strutting Napoleons . . . where yet a spark of light burns brightly, waiting for a thousand potential torches to be kindled from its flame. And here are these minds, these bodies molded by the master hand of twelve years of building planning struggling for the fearful future .... Eyes upward and hearts beating to the roar of a mighty bomber . . . Science, Mathematics .... Souls crying out for learning. Months and brains working, traveling in distant realms of foreign tongues .... Souls crying out tor learning. Hands grasping for beauty: hopes and desires waxing with every dab of a brush, twist of a compass grind of a pen .... Souls crying out for learning. Power .... power in words, power in paint, power in numbers. Faces .... Endless frames of faces Each one a ship, large or small but each with a purpose . . A ship launched from its cradle to plunge into the water with a crash of lashing spray. And the newly laid keel vibrates eagerly for the call of the open sea. -RICHARD WOOD.

BUSTEP STAR TIGER LILY SARGE Pugfv Tlrvniy-cighf CLASS HISTORY It was way back in 1940 that some 450 wide-eyed freshmen first walked through Central's portals. That year we were all rather awed by the "mighty sen- iors," but when some of our class members went out and made themselves famous, we began to get over our complex. just to mention a few of our nptables- Lynn Maness and Louis Napier both began to "shine" in football, Mickey Cain had one of the leads in the Photoplay Club's movie, "The Lady Killer", Marjorie Radford was elected Secretary of the Student Gov- ernment at the close of the year, to hold office for the fall term, and several freshmen were named on' S. A. S. G. committees. The year 1941 rolled around and we found our- selves a step higher-juniors-not quite so scared by the seniors and treating the new crop of freshmen just as We'd been treated and just as We'd promised ourselves We'd never do. October 16 came and some- thing like 300 S.A.S.G. delegates flowed into Central's halls, homes, and cars. The next week-end some of us boarded a special train for Little Rock to watch the Warriors trample the Tigers, Mid-term elections came 'round and four juniors, Margie Radford, Mary White, johnny Hobson and Frank Turnbull, took over student government offices. On February 16, the war hit home at Central-- school was dismissed for draft registration. During February the class of '43 organized, the first junior Class in the history of Central. Felder More- head was elected president, and the chief project of the class was a highly successful clean-up campaign. Near the end of school johnny Hobson was elected president of the Student body for the fall term with a cabinet of several other seniors. Finally the day came-September 6, 1942-and we were officially dubbed "seniors". Oh what fun to look down our noses at the juniors and send the little fresh- men up four long flights of stairs to the famous "swim- ming pool"! Scott Brantley was chosen Lieutenant Colonel of the ll.O.T.C., but because of the new Re- tail Selling course, which Scott took, he was forced to resign, and Thomas Cxawford succeeded him. Stu-- dents went "all out" for the war drives, making the tin can, scrap metal, magazine, key, and war bond and stamp drives more than successful. On Novem- ber 24, the seniors all met for the first class meeting. A few weeks later Felder Morehead was elected president of the class with Peggy Boyce, Lloyd Graves, jake Blumenfeld and Clarence Cotten hold- ing the otl.er offices. Cotten was unable to serve, and Gene 'l'horne took over the duties of sergeant-at-arms. 'Thanksgiving proved very di zappointing, especially to the seniors, for Central was defeated by the Yellow jackets for the third consecutive year. We were still mighty proud of our boys, though, especially Lloyd Graves, Louis Napier and jimmy Williams, who made All-Memphis. Time came for student government elec- tion again and a healed campaign followed, with Marjorie Radford becoming the third girl president in Central's twenty years of' student government. Other seniors elected to offices were june Love over Prud- Puge Twenty-nine ence Todd, fwho later was appointed Commissioner of Defense Activities succeeding David Babinj, A. G. Wellons, joyce Spalding, Fred Willis, David Vance, Dorothy Park and David Babin. The new term began and senior girls found them- selves members of the gym class, because of a state ruling, while the eighteen-year-old boys began to feel Uncle Sam's breath hot on their necks. The senior class immediately got down to work with committees being named and graduation plans getting under way. In the election for Editor of the Senior War- rior, Dalton lvins came out on top over john Broderick, Ann Turner and Dorothy Harris. On April 2, most of the senior boys took the Army and Navy tests for specialized training. Many, however, were already classified in the Navy's V-5. The class gathered at St. Mary's Cathedral on Sun-- day, May 23, for the Baccalaureate services. This brought to our minds the sadness of graduation, and we all began to feel a little depression, instead of our customary hilarity. The following week we were kept busy practicing our songs, marching and doing all the necessary rehearsing for commencement exer- cises. Our last luncheon together was at the Peabody on Wednesday afternoon, May 26. We all found the sur- roundings quite different from the school cafeteria. lnstead of the loud hum of voices and crashing dishes, we heard the soft music of orchestra. THE night finally came, .May 27, and the class as- sembled behind the stage at the Ellis Auditorium. There was much laughter at the way some of us looked in our caps and gowns, but we were all pleased with ourselves. About 7:45 we all became nervous as to whether we would stumble in march-- ing on the stage or whether we'd drop our diplomas, but at the stroke of 8:00 we marched on stage and cteiytliing went off letter-perfect. Rev. Victor Brugge gave the invocation, and Lucius Burch, jr. gave the Commencement address. We all felt quite proud of Marilyn Martyn, Ruth Howlett and Felder Morehead who made the class speeches, also jolpn Richards who sang the Lord's Prayer, and lvlarjorie Wurzburg who was the organ accompanist for the class songs, the first student in the history of Central to play for the graduation exercises. There were five of our fellow classmates missing in the group, Leslie Doyle, David Hoke, Wallace lteid, jack Bobbitt and Ted jentsch. They were called to Keesler Field, Mississippi, on April 26 to report to the Army Air Corps. As we stood to sing the Farewell Song, written by Bobby Webb, tears came to our eyes as we realized that the long, and sometimes hard, journey that had begun some twelve years before, when we had been led quite fearfully to some grammar school door, had come to an end. We still do not know what lies ahead of us in this uncertain world, but we do know that our days at Central will always remain in our hearts and the things we learned will help us through our trying times. Mrs. Wheeler, played by Iuanita Gossett, is very SEINIICR PLAY "Clarence", a comedy in four parts, by Booth Tar- kington, was presented by the senior class to a large audience in the school auditorium on the night of May Zl. lt was directed by Miss Rebekah Cohen. The plot develops around Clarence, a seeming nobody, who is forced upon the Wheeler family be- cause he knows all of their troubles, and they real-A ize it would be disastrous to let him go around spread- ing gossip about them. Clarence was played by Ed Cook. jealous of her daughters governess, Miss Pinney, who she thinks is playing up to her husband. The daugh- ter, Cora, is having an affair with a grass widower, Hubert Stem, who really is in love with Miss Pinney, as are Clarence and the wheeler's son, Bobby. Bobby however, is threatened with a law suit because he kissed the maid, and her fiancee saw it. They all confide their troubles to Clarence, who is handy- man around the house. Up until the last he remains 1 a mystery, for no one even knows his last name. ln the last act it turns out that he is Clarence Smith, a noted scientist with several college degrees and a listing in Who's Who. He and Miss Pinney marry and all 'the family troubles are settled. The characters were as follows: THE CAST: Mrs, Martyn, a secretary ,...... ..... Lona Mitchell Mr, Wheeler ...,.............

STUDENT CCVEIQNIVIENT IOHNNY HOBSON MARIORIE RADFGRD STUDENT GCVERINIIVIENT ACTIVITIES All the activities of Central are supervised directly or indirectly by the Student Government. Naturally, seniors predominate in the cabinet. The first term's cabinet was headed by lohnny Hobson, who had formerly served as Prosecuting At- torney. Other senior members were: Felder Morehead, Boys' Vice-President, Peggy Boyce, Girls' Vice-Presi- dent, Dorothy Park, Secretary, Frank Turnbull, Treas- urer, lack Barron, Prosecuting Attorney, George Schwab, Commissioner of Social Activities, and june Love, Commissioner of Publicity. For the first time in the history of Central's Student Government, a Direc- tor of War Activities Was appointed. David Babin served ably at this post and Robert Bartusch and Bradley Daley served as Chief Marshal and Fire Marshal, respectively. The cabinet members are the servants of the coun- cil, which is made up of representatives duly elected from each home room. In the middle of the year the Green and Gold nom- inating conventions are held, each consisting of dele- gates from every home room. Two tickets are pre- sented to the students from these conventions. Elec- tions are held by secret ballot. This year, for the third time in Central's history, a girl, Marjorie Radford, was elected President of the Student Government. Marjorie had formerly served as Secretary and Girls' Vice- President. The Senior members of the new cabinet were A. G. Wellons, Boys' Vice-President, june Love, Girls' Vice-President, Ioyce Spalding, Secretary, Fred Willis, Treasurer, David Vance, Prosecuting Attorney, David Babin, Commissioner of Social Activities, and Dorothy Park, Commissioner of Publicity. Prudence Todd was appointed Director of War Activities and Iohn Marshall was apponted Chief Marshal. Robert Bartusch served as Fire Marshal. New Oiiice Proves Important One The Director of War Activities, who was first ap- pointed in September, 1942, supervised the majority of the projects attempted by the Student Government this year. David Babin started his job by beginning a scrap metal drive, for which the office was specific- ally created. With a quota of 7500 pounds tfive pounds per studentl, Central plunged whole-heartedly into the drive. The results were astounding. Central students brought in 67,500 pounds of scrap metal, more than any other city school. The money obtained from this drive enriched Central's treasury by more than 35380. Also in the fall term, the Student Govern- ment played host to thousands of registrants in the gasoline registration program. The primary activity in connection with this office during the spring term was a War Stamp Drive. Be- ginning in the middle of March, 1943, the drive, under the direction of Prudence Todd, was an instant suc- cess because of the enthusiastic response of the stu- dent body. Witness of the success of these efforts is the rise in the school sales totals: March 16-25409, March 23- 5412, March 30-33395, April 30-395, April 6-51200, April 13-S2,35O, and April 20-33,500 To stimulate the purchase of Stamps and Bonds, a weekly contest was held among the home rooms. All rooms who were 100 per cent received a small minute man, which was pasted on the door. This idea came from the Scrap metal drive of the previous Page Thirty-two fall, in which small figures representing war imple- ments were used to show the room's progress in the Drive. Each week a banner was awarded to the home room purchasing the greatest amount of stamps. The United States Treasury Department awarded Central a certifiicate because of the amount of money which the students had invested in stamps. Publicity was given the campaign by the local newspapers, one of which printed the pictures seen elsewhere in the book. ln the picture are Carleen Barclay Peggy Boyce, Iohnny Hobson, june Love, Mar- jorie Radford, Prudence Todd, A. G. Wellons and Fred Willis. A Brass Drive Central's Drive for Scrap brass this spring was fea- tured by a general auditorium, in which a quartette including Ed Cook, Frank Turnbull and Fred Willis sang an original song. The boys pleaded for scrap. ln answer to their pleas, several hundred pounds of scrap was turned in, and 158 show tickets for a spe- cial performance at all suburban theatres were dis- tributed. Central Students were happy to receive a week's vacation from school so that the building might be used for the registration of Memphis citizens for food rationing. Under the direction of Marjorie Radford, an organization was worked out in which the students participated. By this system, the student volunteers acted as pages, conducting those who were to regis- ter to their proper places, helping them to cut some of the preliminary "red tape" and thus facilitating the registration. Throughout the year patriotism has been the main theme of the Nation, and Central High School, through the Student Government has shown itself more than willing to cooperate. Other Projects Many other projects and improvement were accom- plished this year. In the fall term one of the first actions of the Council was to approve a plan sub- mitted by Robert Bartusch, providing for a smoking lot on the northeast campus. Robert said that this was done to prevent smoking in the inside of the school, in violation of Student Government laws and fire regulations. This project was carried out very successfully all year. Under the direction of Peggy Boyce and june Love, the Matron's Room was re-equipped at a cost of approximately Sl00.A Boys' Emergency Room was also set up, to which boys who needed first-aid or became sick could go to. The Student Government published an almost per- fect telephone directory. The idea of a telephone directory originated with George Battle in 1940, when he published the first "Hello, Central." This year, in contrast to the preceding two years, only' 17 errors in the directory were made. For a school as large as Central this record is exceptional. Several seniors served on the telephone directory committee. They were Ioe Fleming, john Marshall, Ioyce Spalding and Naida Thomas. Denleigh Clarke, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee of the Council, began to plan a luncheon Page Th -irty th ree at which Central was to be host, and to which repre- sentatives of all Memphis High schools were invited. This project was carried out in April, at which time Thomas Stern Was the chairman of the Committee. Under the direction of Frank Turnbull a very suc- cessful Inaugural Ball was held january 22. At the Ball the announcement of the newly elected Student Government Officers was made by johnny Hobson, retiring President. Auditorium Programs The auditorium programs are an integral part of the student government. The responsibility of provid- ing entertainment weekly for the students falls upon the shoulders of the Commissioner of Social Activities. The students of Central High have enjoyed a wide variety of entertaining and educational programs this year. There has been an Auditorium every week with half the school going one Week fthis is called "A" Auditoriuml and the other half going the next week f"B" Auditoriumj. On the very first assembly program it was shown that Central has a wealth of talent among its members. George Schwab, Commissioner of Social Activities for the first term, started off with an enjoyable program featuring home talent. lt was in this assembly that the "Gruesome Twosome," "Professors" Ed Cook and Fred Willis, made their debut. This pair remained favorites thrgighout the entire first term. The students in "B" Auditorium were entertained by Mrs. Peggy Rhodes, violinist, Miss Adelaide Lawler and Mrs. Paul Allen, pianist. The program was en- titled "Points of Democracy" and consisted of examples of the music from each of the different phases in American history. ' Many other varied and entertaining programs followed these, and the last week of school before the Christmas rolidays the Speech department collab- orated with Mr. Hawke's music department to bring us a most enjoyable Christmas program. Under the direction of Miss Cohen, the speech students pre- sented "The Christmas Gimmie," a play full of Christmas spirit and symbolic of American democracy. The Glee Club sang many beautiful Christmas carols, and greatly furthered the Christmas spirit throughout the school. - After mid-term election, the job of entertaining the 1500 of Central fell to another Senior, David Babin, the new Commissioner of Social Activities. One of his main objectives in this office was to furnish both "A" and "B" auditoriums with the same program, so that neither one would miss the entertainment enjoyed by the other. David, too, began his programs by displaying an array of Central talent. Besides the usual singing and' novelty acts, the student body was highly entertained by a farce, "Citizen Korn." This was followed in quick succession by programs equally entertaining. There were the R.O.T.C. Band, Dr. Atkinson of Southwestern, who spoke on mental telepathy, a trained dog act, an "H" club skit, and to top the list, an old time variety show. This show presented a jazz band, a violin and a piano duet, a vaudeville act by Betty Creamer and Fred Wills, and an amusing lecture on "How To Fall." The programs have been exceptionally good all year, and the students have enjoyed them. Spring Term Projects The Spring term began with many improvements in mind by Marjorie Radford, head of the Student Government. One of the big improvements during this term was the success of the fire drills. Heretofore fire drills had been noisy, disorganized, and dis- orderly. Robert Bartusch was appointed Fire Marshal. "Margie" and "Butch" immediately began trying to improve the drills. Feeling that practice makes per- fect, they ordered that many drills be undertaken. Towards the latter part of the school year a marked improvement was noted, Another improvement was the enlivening of tlie school dances, The dances had been very dull be- cause few people would engage in them. But when a suggestion was made to abolish the dances, the cabinet tried hard to improve them. Many innovat tions were recommended by a committee headed by Iune Love and Naida Thomas. The Friday dances became one of the highlights of the week, because so many of the students were having such a good time. The result of these changes astounded David Babin, director of the dances, and his assistant, Iohn Broderick. Towards the middle of April a record-player was purchased for the use of the teachers. This instrument is kept in the Office, where it is available to all teachers. lt is expected to be valuable to English and history teachers, because the playing of records of speeches, historical events, poems, etc., makes their subjects more graphic. As this article goes to press, the Cabinet is working on other projects. An improved microphonic system is being negotiated for. Other things will be attempted. The improvements which Central has been fortunate enough to receive this year are a direct result of an efficient student government, It is the general opinion that Iohnny Hobson and Marjorie Radford are two of the ablest presidents ever to hold office in Central High. Much credit is also due the faculty advisors, Misses Dorothy Nolan, Mamie Reiter, and Virgie Seffens. .nua- A group of Student Government officers and othcrs admire one of the twelve jeeps Central bought for the army this year. Ihlyf' Thirty-four l-IGNCDR SCCIETY The Sigma Lambda Chi Chapter of the National Honor Society was organized at Central in 1932. From that date the society has worked to promote charac- ter, leadership, service and scholarship among the Central students. Twice a year new members are elected by both the faculty and the members of the society. Selection is based on how well the candidates have qualified in the four principles of the society. Each year fifteen per cent of the twelfth grade and five per cent of the eleventh grade may be chosen as members. Officers for the fall term were Ioe Fleming, presi- dent, Dorothy Scott, vice president, Dorothy Harrisf secretary, Ben Covington, treasurer, Norma lean Anderson, council member, and Dalton Ivins, reporter. At both the Fall and Spring term Student Govern- ment elections, members of the society helped to count votes. The society encourages scholarship by awarding two banners each six weeks, one to the home room having the highest average, and the other to the home roow showing the greatest improvement. Marilyn Martin served as president during the Spring term, Bates Brown, vice president, Barbara Hartie, secretary, Denleigh Clarke, treasurer, Mary Ann Metzger, council member, and Muriel Hislop, reporter. A ,"Recognition Day" honoring the students who had made the term honor role was observed early in the second semester. In a special auditorium these students were awarded white and gold ribbons let- tered "Honor Student," and were asked to wear them throughout the day. Central's Victory Book drive was sponsored by the society. About two hundred books were turned in, of which more than fifty were new. The Honor Society conducted a campaign against cheating during the second term. As a part of this campaign questionnaires were distributed and a skit was given in the auditorium. Several members sug- gested that the Honor System should be adopted in Central. This was opposed by the faculty, who believed it would not be practical in a school as large as Central. The faculty sponsors are Misses Dorothy Green, chairman, Mildred Grooms, Birdie McGrath, Mary Rather, Nell Stewart, Vermonta Wilson, and Mr. I. D. Simpson. Senior members of the Honor Society are: Norma lean Anderson, Iacob Blumenfeld, Mabel Boone, Gene Broadway, Iohn Broderick, Bates Brown, Earl Burford, Denleigh Clarke, Betty Clare Coleman, Peggy Con- nable, Ben Covington, Holloway Cromer, Katherine Crowell, lane Davidson, Marcie Duffy, Nancy Erdman, Emily Ann Feld, Ioe Fleming, Dolores Frank, Dorothy Gary, Davide Goldberger, Ruth Graves, Pauline Grodsky, Dorothy.

CD. T. C. BATTALICDN The school term of 1942-43 was a highly successful military year for the Central High R.O.T.C. Battalion. The corps, under the able direction of Sergeant O. B. Harper and Captain Iames D. Benner, placed high in the War program planned for the units of the City schools. Although the R.O.T.C. was outshone by the Sailors from the Millington Naval Base, during the Armistice Day Parade, the Green and Gold Cadets placed sec- and in competition with the other public schools of Memphis. . During February the C,H.S. Rifle Team fired in the Fourth Corps Area and William Randolph Hearst Matches. The team was the best Central has had in many years, for the boys not only placed first in the Hearst Matches but rated third in the Fourth Corps Area. The men were highly praised by the judges and many medals were presented on graduation night. Senior members of the team were: Harold Emick, Gene Holthofer, Dick Medding, Richard Nunnally, Harold McSwain, and Harry Threlkeld. The Army Day Parade, held annually, was can- celled, because of the war. Many cadets helped out in the gasoline rationing registration last November and gave invaluable assistance to the teachers. Colonel Nichols, commanding officer of the Atlanta R.O.T.C. units, inspected the cadets on December 3. He praised the men for their fitness in such a perilous time. Federal inspection was set for April 30, and the Battalion was in tip-top shape for that event. Colonel Douglass N. McMillan of Chattanooga was inspecting officer and the entire unit made a fine showing. The annual Field Night was cancelled. Instead, a competitive drill was held at each of the Memphis schools. A composite platoon under Hubert Topper participated in the lim Quinn competition and a com- posite company in command of Iack Barron repre- sented Central in company drill. Central men placed high in the Manual-of-Arms competition. , Senior Harry Threlkeld and two other Central men competed for the S. A.R. medal, which is given to the outstanding second-year cadet of each school. Thomas Crawford and Harry Threlkeld entered the outsanding cadet competition, in which ten other cadets from the city schools competed. QQ R. CD. T. C BAND This year Central's R.O.T.C. band completed one of the finest and most colorful years since its found- ing. The year was marked by many outstanding and difficult events, but under the capable leadership of Capt. Charles F. Harrison the band came through with flying colors. Besides playing for the many pep meetings last fall, the band attended all of the football games and added that final touch that was necessary for a Warrior victory. The band, however, not only spurred our own team on, but also gave spirit to the many college teams which performed here. Living up to its usual high standard, the band made a fine showing in both the Armistice Day Parade and the Annual Government Inspection, being complimented by the inspecting officers of both events. This highly trained organization not only performed as an individual group, but they combined with other - . -X city school bands to participate in such outstanding events as the dedication of Kennedy General Hospi- tal, the notable speech by Colonel Roane Waring, national commander of the American Legion, and the presentation of the high honors bestowed upon the soldiers in Kennedy Hospital who were wounded on Guadalcanal. The band performed magnificently in these ceremonies, not to mention performances at the Second Army Headquarters, Veterans' Hospital, Nineteenth Century Club, and many other parades, concerts, and dedications. The members received a fine reward for these services so cheerfully rendered to their school and city. For the first time in the history of Central the members of the band were awarded school letters, resembling those given for outstanding ability in sports. These letters consist of a Green and Gold "H" with a lyre in the center-a most appropriate emblem. Page Thirty-eight I - -'-- -is'--fl SENIOR R. O. T.

Officers for the Fall term were Harold Emick, presi- dent, Bradley Daley, vice presidentp Louis Napier, Sergeant-at-arms. Instead of the annual Amateur Hour, two picture shows were given and both were successful. The club also presented Major Louis I. Harant with a traveling kit and his lieutenant-colonel's buttons for future use, upon his departure last March for Atlanta, Georgia. For the second term, Bradley Daley served as president with lack Barron as vice president, Robert Turner, secretary, David Vance, treasurer, and Robert Page Thirty-nine Koen, sergeant-at-arms.

SPGNSORS' CLUB As a part of the military organization of the school, the Sponsors' Club serves an important function. The members have been selected by the individual offi- cers to encourage the morale and fulfillment of the high ideals of the school. This club assists wherever it is needed. They have contributed in the attainment of the war effort by knitting squares for the afghans, also by cheerful aid and encouragement to Kennedy Hospital. The officers of the club are Patsy Peterson, presi- dent, Pat Barfield, secretary, and Dorothy Scott, treasurer. Miss Mary Rather is faculty advisor for the club. Once a week on parade or flag raising days, usually Wednesday or Friday, the sponsors can easily be distinguished by their white gabardine uniforms in military style, with gold ornaments and buttons. To complete this uniform they wear white garrison caps and white gloves. The sponsors are urged to attend the Government inspection, Where they sit in a body or stand in review as the Government inspectors wish. The spon- sors also participate in the annual Field Day, which consists of a competitive drill among the six high schools in the city, and also on Armistice Day, when they make their first public appearance in uniform.

When a Warrior earns a letter in any one of the four major sports-football, basket- ball, baseball, track-he automatically becomes a members of the "H" Club. , The main purpose of this organization is to bring together and establish bonds of friendship between participants in the various sports. Miss Elizabeth Haszinger, sponsor of the club, keeps an accurate record of the members, both past and present. Gff- hand, she can give the whereabouts and doings of almost any of the former letter men of Central. FCDCDT Although finishing in second place in the city grid tournament, the Warriors had a good season. The only exception was the unexpected loss to Tech. But the Yellowjackets have to wiri once in a while to keep the fans interested. On the road the team won two out of four starts, the bright spot being the defeat of the vaunted Tilghman High of Paducah, Ky. The Warriors got off to a slow start, but as the season progressed they gained much-needed experience and began to polish off each rival. Coach Emil Boepple, with the help of Kenny Holland and Fleet Edwards, did an excellent iob of making a smooth team out of a few experienced men and several boys who had never started a ball game before. Central 0 Southside 19 Suffering the first of their two defeats by city grid squads, the Warrior gridmen "bit the dirt" before the onslaught of a rugged team of Southside Scrappers. While some three thousand unhappy Central fans looked on, the comparatively light Warrior line and still smaller set of backfield men took a bone-crushing pounding by the heavy Scrapper forward wall. Early in the first quarter C. E. Wilson, ace Scrapper end, scored on a smoothly clicking end-around, rac- ing 37 yards to "pay dirt." At about this stage of the battle Central's line was weakened when George Carter was forced out of the game with a badly cut chin. Behind excellent pass protection furnished by a team inspired after an early touchdown, big Frankie Davis launched a passing attack that seemed to cloud the sky with pigskins. Wilson snagged one of these long heaves and dashed into the end zone, cinching another half dozen points. ln spite of a determined defense on the part of the Green and Gold linemen, a sustained drive ended in another tally for the Southmen, leaving the final score 19 to U in favor of the championship bound Scrappers. 1 Q ll ll CLUB Many athletes of the "H" Club have distinguished themselves in fields other than sports. lt is not un- common, but rather ordinary, to hear the names of letter men mentioned as leaders of the student body or of the senior class. In this year's graduating class there are several "H" Club members. Graduating officers and members are as follows: Clarence Cotten, president, Gene Thorn, vice-presi- dent, A. G. Wellons, secretary, Iacob Blumenfeld, treasurer, Lynn Maness, sergeant-at-arms, George Carter, Charles Corbett, Holloway Cromer, Bradley Daley, Gayden Drew, Iimmy Finney, Lloyd Graves, lack Hall, Warde Iones, Robert Koen, Warren Leffler, Louis Napier, Wallace Reid, and Iimmy Williams. BFtLL Central 39 Messick 6 A gay feather in the Warrior cap was the 39 to 6 pasting handed to the Messick Panthers. The boys went into this game with blood in their eyes. Messick assumed the position of an arch-enemy when she scored an unexpected victory over the 1941 Warriors. Add to this the effect of a fresh defeat still hanging over the Central team and you will have a mild idea of what the hapless Panthers had to cope with. Things started off with a bang when A. G. Wellons rifled a pass to lack Hall deep into Black and Red territory. In two more thrusts the fast-clicking Warriors earned the remaining 7 yards to the goal line and Wellons skipped over for the tally. In a lightning change of events Cotton Davis stepped off a cool 35 yards to a score-tying Panther touchdown. The Green and Gold machine began to gather momentum again, and after receiving the kick-off began a steady push, gradually eating into Messick territory until Rip Rowan crossed the goal line for another half dozen. After a rest during half-time the Warrior squad came out for another taste of blood. Wellons scored first, then Napier broke away for a 50-yard dash to the last white line. Rip Rowan became the shining star of the night when he intercepted an intended Panther pass and made a sensational 80 yard hike to a touchdown. After the game every member of the Central team was willing to swear that he per- sonally had blocked at least two men on that play. Louis Napier turned in his second tally of the game after the Central boys recovered a Messick fumble on the kick-off. This terminated the scoring, leaving the Warriors with a juicy 39 to 6 victory.

Second row- went on to the field expecting the Red and White combination to pull some fancy tricks. However, every man was on his toes and our gridmen found the Treadwell machine only another team of eleven ordinary boys. Treadwell's All-Memphis guard, Everett l-larvell, strangely failed to shine in his usual manner. There are several good reasons to which this can be attributed. Two prominent ones were Russell Swink and George Carter. The title "All- Memphis" just didn't seem to impress these boys. Napier put the torch to the powder barrel when he returned a punt from mid-field to the 30, crashing to the 12 a few plays later. The scoring play was ci pass rifled to Leslie Morgan by Napier. All-Memphis center Iimmie Williams made his debut as a ball carrier deluxe when he snagged an Eagle pass and galloped 50 yards to the zero marker. At this point the Treadwell line defenses suddenly tightened and there followed a duel of punts and passes which lasted two quarters. Finally, in the last period, Lady Luck smiled on the Green and Gold and the boys recovered a Treadwell fumble in mid-field. A steady pounding of the Eagle line was begun but it suddenly became unnecessary when A. G. Wellons spun away from several potential tacklers and dashed 35 yards for the final tally.

Central 46 Catholic High 6 Although there was only one punt in the Catholic High game, the Warriors were definitely on top throughout, as is shown by the 46 points on the Central side of the score board. lack Hall pulled the trigger mid-way in the first period with a 33 yard trip to the cross bar. Several minutes later Hall and Napier had moved the oval to the 3. After timeout at the end of the first quarter, Maness scored on the first play. Rudy Baldreghini, speedy halfback, rang the gong for Catholic's only score when he dashed 60 yards to the end zone with a horde ot green-clad figures at his heels, Napier answered with a 42-yard touch- down jaunt behind excellent downfield blocking by Robert Koen, Iimmie Williams and the rest of the line. After the interception of an intended Blue and White aerial, "Rip" Rowan smashed thru the weary Catholic line for an additional six points. Working with the second string Warriors, Bill Wright starred by gathering 12 points in the final quarter. Central 7 C. B. C. 2 Since the days when C. B. C. and Central were the only high schools in the city there has been fiery rivalry between these two ancient enemies. With a winning season to spur them on the Brothers entered the fray with strong desires to blast the Warriors off the field. Pointing with pride to their much-praised forward wall, C. B. C. confidently expected to run the inexperienced Central linemen ragged. However, all over town were others who had noticed decided improvement in the Green and Gold machine and were not backward in spreading the news. With a strong following on each side the battle was antici- pated with much excitement and, upon the set date several thousand fans gathered to witness the kick-off. After a punting duel through the first and most of the second quarters, in which neither team got inside the other's 30 yard line, the Purple Wave broke through to block Louis Napier's punt. The ball bounded back into the end zone for an automatic safety and 2 points for C. B. C. As these two points shone impressively from the scoreboard, the hopes of Central fans dimmed. C. B. C. kicked off at the start of the second hall, recovered a fumble, and pushed to the 9. Burdick was jolted for no gain, Salmon blasted for a yard, then two attempted passes were incomplete. A. G. Wellons sent a beautiful punt spiraling to the Brothers' 6 yard line, where Burdick received and was dropped in his tracks. After carrying twice for no gain, Burdick punted out to his own 33. Wellons returned the oval to the 22 in three plays, Rowan smashed to the 19. Wellons carried again, moving to the 13, then Rip made 3 more yards. A. G. received his pay-off then when he fairly flew around left end, crossing the goal line standing up. Captain Clarence Cotton ran the extra point over. With time growing short Napier carried eight consecutive times, gaining 28 yards. A few minutes more and Napier's All- Memphis ability might have added 6 more points to the Warrior's total, buttthe final whistle halted his self-sustained drive and left the pigskin resting on the Brothers' 7. Central 35 HIIITIGS 20 Central scored in every quarter of a wild contest which terminated in defeat for Hurnes High. Some 1700 fans witnessed more than an ordinary display of football talent in the Warrior-Tiger tilt at Fair- grounds Stadium. The first score was pushed over by Louis Napier early in the first canto. From the Hurnes 30 Napier dashed untouched to the cross-bar. "Hot" had a hand in the second tally too, when he fired a completed pass to Leslie Morgan in the end zone. Iimmie Wil- liam's placement was good. Next, in the second half, came one of those runs that are hard to forget. Bill Wright, third string tail- back, received the kick-off and flitted 70 yards for a touchdown. The Tigers, angered at the thought of being "stomped" in their last game, began to retaliate with a neat touchdown by Gallagher. However, six plays later, Lynn Maness scored again for the Warriors. The see-saw continued when Gallagher passed to LOUIS "HOT" NAPIER, Halfback Page Forty-four Ierry Crook after a fake run. Crook scored on this trick play. The Bengal ace half scored the final Orange and White tally as a result of a Central fumble.-fi-ft C' Napier, who scored first in the game, rounded out his evening by one more touchdown in the last period. Central 6 Tech 7 After a loss to South Side early in the season, the Green and Gold eleven began to hit their stride, showing better form and gaining vital experience with each game. Had the schedule been arranged so that the Scrapper-Warrior tilt had been -played toward the season's close, the result might have been quite different. As it is, the Central team staged a smooth comeback and approached Thanskgiving Day with five city wins and one defeat. It is no excuse, for the Warriors surely played an excellent game, but the football coach, Emil Boepple, was forced to leave for the Navy one week before the annual Tech- Central skirmish. Although the Warriors entered the fray definitely the choice to win, the plays just simply wouldn't click against a Tech outfit that had laughed at a lousy season and practised three to four hours daily with the sole purpose of nosing out Central. And nose out they did--by a scant one point, the final score reading Tech 7 and Central 6. That one point was all that kept Clarence Cotten from getting the football promised to him. Captain Cotten cer- tainly deserved the Tech football, for in our opinion, he was the best blocking back in the prep league. ' i . CHEERLEADERS While we are on the subject of athletics, don't for- get the cheerleaders. lt is hard to imagine any form of physical labor that would require more stamina and energy than being a cheerleader. And what do they get in return? Only bad colds and sore feet. Anyway, here's wishing that every Centralite had as much school spirit as Gladys Autry, David Babin, Scott Brantley, and Grace Ienkins, Grace Moore, lane Ramey, Bobby Tucker, and Iean Writesman. l'ager I"0I'fQll-fl'UC BASKETBALL AND TRACK LETTERMEN Front Itow fleft to riglitj- Track letterrnenftkiyden Drew Basketball lettermen-Jack Hall, Gene Thorn, Warrie Jones, Wallace Reid, Jimmy Finney, Bradley Daley.

BASKETBALL After a good but rather unlucky season, in which the team took third place in the city league, the Red- men rallied to win the Second District Tournament, thus scoring a victory over the city champs. The first tournament engagement of the Warriors was with l-fumes. After a mild starting quarter, the boys began to heat the floor in the later periods. Led by Iudd Williford, who laced 13 points and lack Hall, a crack forward, the Green and Gold aces racked up 35 chalk marks to defeat the Tigers by a 20 point margin. Conspicuous by his absence was Captain Gene Thorn, victim of a sprained ankle. In the semifinals of the district tournament Central met Treadwell. Until the end of the opening period the Eagles were not able to :ink a single field goal. Finally, in the last 3 minutes of the second quarter, the Red and White began to worry the basket, and at one time during the third chapter the difference between scores was only 7 points. The official score, however, read Central 38, Treadwell 27. Thus the Warriors moved into the West Tennessee playoff, and gained their second victory out of three games with the Eagles. ln the finals at Memphis State Southside also fell before the onslaught of the mighty Warriors. In an impressive second half display Central scored l5 points as compared to Southside's 'S Although Charlie Corbett was disqualified for too many fouls, he was in long enough to chalk up 8 points, and big Maxie MacMu11in played his best game of the season. The final score read Central 43, Southside 28. Many years hence we will still be arguing that the last goal of the Central-Whitehaven game was thrown after time was up. But officially, it was good, so the Warrior courtmen lost the district championship. With llfz minutes of playing time remaining, a long shot from mid-court put Whitehaven in the lead, 22 to 21. Another lucky shot by a sub gave Whitehaven a 3 point margin. Gene Thorn was fouled, making his first try good and electing to take the ball out of bounds. Ray Brown grabbed his throw and laced one, tying the score at 24-24. Then came the blow that lost the game for Central. Iust as the final whistle blew, some jerk made a last desperate shot and it lazily floated through the basket. Final score: Central 24, Whitehaven 26. Page' I"orf 11-.s'i.r earth.

The black clouds were whiffed away when Bradley Daley, Gayden Drew, and lim Finney set the pace in rack- ing up points by regularly taking first places. Rumors circulated that the track hopefuls were working out daily before the snow had melted on the track. lt is certainly evident that they had put in long hours on the cinder lane sometime, for without a coach, they showed promptly that the Green and Gold team was by far the best combinattion in the city. The first meet was a triangular contest on April 10 with Sardis, Mississippi, and Whitehaven. '1'he Warriors scored an easy victory by piling up a total of 56 points. Whitehaven took second berth with 38 and Sardis trailed with 14. Gayden Drew led the field by winning three of Central's seven firsts. The highlight of the meet was Gayden's high jumpingg he floated over a bar 5 feet 10 inches from mother Puyn' lf'orIy-sa'i'cu ht ene orne an ubs i u e I u er have considered this a fair pole vault: Besides this, Drew won the shot put with a heave of 44 feet 10.5 inches and hurled the discus to a high mark of 130 feet. The Warriors' other firsts were the mile run by dependable Iim Finney, the 440 by Bradley Daley in 52.2 seconds, the javelin by Highfill, and the high hurdles by Allen. On April 17 the Whitehaven team avenged its defeat by the Central thinly-clads the week before with a 70 to 57 victory. This time Drew yielded his title as high point man to George Swanton of White- haven. Gayden trailed by one point. Although the Green and Gold captured 8 out of 15 first places, the total number of points gave Whitehaven the decision. Finney, Daley, and Drew accounted for 4 ot Central's first berths. Also, the Warriors won the broad jump, javelin, 880, and the mile relay. Dick lvledding took third place in the 880 and was one of the winning mile relay quartet. Running against flashy competi- tion, Henry Bateman finished third in the 220 dash. Having the advantage of praticipating in two previous meets, the Warriors scored easily to swamp Tech 92 to 26. Gayden Drew was an individual star. He was best in the discus, and also in the high jump and shot put. Central won all but two events and finished second in 9 competitions. Ioe Highfill, a junior, tossed the javelin 164 feet to win the throw. Allen took the 120 high hurdles with a 17-second finish. Henry Bateman sprinted the 100 in fast time to a first place, and Daley and Finney showed their usual fine form and won the 440 and mile run respec- tively. Central put an excellent team on the field against Tech. Hopeful eyes looked upon them with visions of another state championship. CITY PREP TRACK MEET As had been predicted by well-informed parties, the Green and Gold rolled throu h the Cit Prev Q Y lf Meet with ease. Almost every member of the Warrior team came through the preliminaries on April 29 and was on hand for the finals. A comparison of the high total of 98 points scored by Central and 20 grabbed by Tech, runner-up in the meet, shows by what a wide margin the Redmen won thevcity title. First place among the individual scorers was taken by Gayden Drew. By winning tirst berths in the shot- 1 put and high jump and finishing second in the 120 high hurdles, Gayden managed to rake in 16 points A crack pair of relay teams won both the mile and halt mile relays for Central. R. Baker, Finney, Daley, and Medding took the mile, and "Slick" Williams, Rowan, Welch, and Bateman were winners of the hali mile relay. The Warriors also won the 100 yard dash by Rowan, the javelin by l-lighfill, the broad jump by Rowan, and the 440 dash by Bradley Daley. Central took a total of 12 tirsts to annex the city championship. t I 1 F WARREN LEFPLER, Boxing Champ Pugf' l"m'Iy-:fight l l Front Row fleft to riglitj -Gayden Drew, Gene Thorne, A. G.

BASEBALL Coach Lynn Dowdy did fine work in shaping a winning team out of the l943 list of baseball hope- fuls, When this article went to press, the city tourna' ment had not yet terminated but the Warriors held the inside track with Southside and Catholic as the most powerful foes. ln their first diamond clash of the season, the Cen- tral nine met and defeated C. B. C. The Brothers were able to get only one hit while Gene Thorn was hurling. Big Gene's mound work was the show of the game. Late in the contest, with the bases loaded, A. G. Wellons blasted a triple and gave Central the winning margin. Facing Walter Mahannah, ace Catholic High hurler, the Green and Gold batsmiths were able to connect for only one pair of singles. Warren Leffler pitched a cool game, limiting the Terriers to five hits. Even Central's heavy hitting Holloway Cromer, Warde lones, and A. G. Wellons were held in check by Mahannah, and the final score found the Red Men trailing l to 3. Page' f"1ll'fjl-llfllt ln spite of the fact that Sacred Heart ran over the Catholic Terriers, Central runners crossed home plate ten times as compared to two by Sacred Heart, Gene Thorn fanned 14 men as smoothly as could be asked. A. G. Wellons and lohn Trent furnished thrills in showing the fans by example the proper way to hit a baseball. On April 23 the Southside baseball champs were defeated for the first time in three years. Reasons for the upset were the hurling of "Dead Body" Thorn coupled with some bat bending by the Central vete- rans. Thorn whiffed 9 men, allowed one run in each of the first three games, and held the Scrappers to only one bingle the rest of the way. ln the opening period the Red Men loaded the bases and scored on a single by Leslie Morgan, In the third Southside's first bagger Bill Carpenter, dropped a throw from shortstop and allowed more Central scoring. Besided his excellent pitching, Thorn showed class in blasting two hefty singles. The game ended in a 4 to 3 victory for Central. Tech also fell in the wake of the smooth sailing Central nine. A three-run homer by second baseman Warde Iones in the first half of the final stanza placed the Warriors in front. The Yellowjackets staged a rally in the final half, but Gene Thornhapplied the brakes, Official score: Central 7, Tech 5. Meeting the Purple Wave for the second time, the Warrior diamond men racked up l4 runs. Warren Leffler allowed only 6 scattered hits and no runs. IVIINQI2 TENNIS The city prep tennis tournament had not begun at the time this article was written, but several racquets had been seen around the campus in the hands of veterans of the game. Since you can guess the quality of a tennis player by the shade of red his face has been burnt by the sun, we would say that Iack Callicut, Winston Flake, Iudd Williford and some of the other pellet-pounders were getting in a little early season practice. At any rate, the coming tournament should include some flashy action by the above- mentioned lads as well as several other racquet- wielders from the dark halls of old Central High. GGLF Although the Central golf foursome had not played in any contest at the time of printing, potentially the 1943 team has some of the best material in the city circuit. A quartet consisting of Edgar Bailey Cof the golf-playing Baileysl, Bobby Barham, Sam Stewart and Iack Wallace should polish off all comers in neat order. SWIMMING Before April 30 Central's only swimming meet was with Tech High, defending city champs. The Warriors dropped the decision but performed admirably in several events. Harry Robertson was high point man for Central, Harry won the 100 yard backstroke with a time of l minute and 26.5 seconds. Iim Lowe accounted for several of the Green and Gold points, and Howard Stringfellow took a second and one third place. Warren Reed, a junior, placed either sec- ond or third in several contests.

Warren Leffler was tabbed "the most promising lightweight to come out of the novice division in several years." Leffler won over Frank Smith, Ioe Reagan, Iohnny Hightower, Basil Crone in the North Memphis finals. All these fights were Won by decision. Iimmie fHerkeJ Haynes, fighting in the light heavy- weight class, decisioned Bob-Iones and lost a close decision to Ioe Pognetti, husky Humes slugger. Allen Henderson, contending in the featherweight division, was outpointed by Louis Anderton, the 1942 Mid-South champion. Leffler, the Tunney of Prep circles, eliminated Walter Hawkins, the South Memphis champion, in the city finals and Billy Monroe and Pat Rose in the Mid-South finals. "Birds" Leffler knocked Rose out in the second round and became Central's first Mid- South Golden Gloves champion. Herke Haynes, who took Pognetti's place when this veteran was drafted, defeated Les Crone, South Memphis champion, in three fast rounds. This was quite an upset, as Crone had knocked out three members of the Southern Crew in this final elimi- nations. Haynes was Central's first lightheavy champion. Leffler believes Iohnny Hightower was his hardest foe, Hightower having knocked out two opponents in one round each. Haynes believes the Pognetti bout was his hardest. According to Haynes, Pognetti hit him with every- thing but the ring posts, however, it can be recorded that Haynes floored Pognetti once, while the Humes slugger failed to down his opponent. Allen Henderson, fighting against Louis Anderton, had little chance against the Mid-South champion, however, Henderson can say that Anderton failed to floor him even once, which is quite an accom- plishment. "Birds" Leffler has really put Central on the map, as far as boxing is concerned. Page Fifty iiinniziiiinn Scholarship Latin Red Cross Speech Spanish International Relations Home Economics Art Photoplay Garden SCHOLARSHIPS A goodly number of seniors competed for the many scholarships offered to Central this year. The Scholarship Committee, composed of Misses Wilma Keith, chairman, Elsie Deaderick, Elizabeth Horton, Grace Mauzy, Birdie McGrath, Mary Pilking- ton, Mary Polack, and Clara Schneider, interview aspiring students and collect and assemble informa- tion in regard to the various scholarships. Fifteen colleges and universities offered scholar- ships to Central this year. There were two from Southwestern, won by Mabel Boone and Prudence Todd, and one each from Siena and Christian Brothers College. The out-of-town institutions offered only one scholarship each, Cornell, Carnegie Tech, Columbia, Harvard, Yale, Barnard, Randolph-Macon, ,Vassar and Rutgers based their awards on results of college entrance examinations. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Vanderbilt, Tulane, and Sophie New- comb were guided by grades in high school and recommendations from the faculty. ln value these awards range from S100 to 3500. Columbia offers Central one of twenty scholarships of 5500, to be renewed for four years. This honor this year went to Donald Vines. Besides all these there are the Bookstore and the Memphis Alumni scholarships. The money for the former comes from the sale of candy and school supplies. This year, in spite of the increasing diffi- culty in getting candy, six scholarships of S200 each will be given. In bestowing these a faculty committee considers scholarship, as revealed on a competitive examina- tion, service to the school, and financial need. The results are announced on Commencement night. This year fifteen students applied. Examinations were held at the University of Tennessee May 8. The Memphis Alumni scholarships of S250 is open to all Memphis high schools. This was started by the Memphis Alumni Association several years ago when Memphis had but one high shcool. It is awarded on a competitive examinattion given by Southwestern at the University of Tennessee. Out of the twenty- four who have applied for it this year fifteen are from Central. It seems a good omen that Central students have won this award nine out of twelve years. LATIN CLUB As Central's Latin Club comes to the end of its first year of existence, the members might easily take for their slogan, "venimus vidimus vicimus," for, fwith apologies to I. Caesarl that is exactly what they did. The students of the third year Latin classes saw a need for closer fellowship among Latin students, and also a need for something to promote an interest in the language. Together with Misses Ada Raines and Rebecca Young, they organized the club. In one year this has become one of the most popular and wide awake clubs in Central. The Latin Club belongs to the Iunior Classical League and proudly displays its framed charter. This year under the leadership of Donald Vives, in the Fall term, and Richard Wendt, in the Spring, the club has progressed rapidly. The programs were alternated, so that one meeting was educational, and one recreational. The success of the programs may be attributed to Shirley Cooley and Denleigh Clarke. At Christmas time the club had a "super" scavenger hunt and Christmas party at Helen Pierce's house. The highlight of the year's entertainment was the celebration of the Kalends of April. A steak fry wound up a successful year. On the more serious side the members will remem- ber the program on Roman customs and civilization, and also the Lincoln's birthday celebration, when they learned to sing America's patriotic songs in atin. At mid-term freshmen were permitted to become members, and the club now boasts a membership of twenty-nine. Senior members were Denieigh Clarke, Katherine Crowell, David Goldberger, Felder Morehead, and Donald Vives . RED CROSS A generous answer to the call for emergency war supplies has distinguished the Central chapter of the Junior Red Cross throut the year, in fact, the group has received commendation for its work from head- quarters. At Christmas time Central packed and sent to war refugee children in England twenty-two Christmas boxes. This spring a letter of deep appreciation was received from the children. Gordonsburg School, in the Tennessee mountains, was chosen, just as last year, to "play Santa Claus to." Christmas presents, gaily wrapped, were sent to the children and a record player to the school. To show their gratitude the children gathered and sent to Central a huge box of popcorn, walnuts, and pea- nuts. The members of the Central chapter got busy, popped the corn, shelled and roasted the peanuts, made popcorn balls and cookies with them, and took them to the U. S. O. canteen for the soldiers. Another project was the knitting of afghans by the various homerooms. Seven were turned in, the work of the following homerooms: 214, Miss Watkins ftwol, 106, Mrs. Moss 204, Miss Haszinger, 307 and 302, Miss Metz and Miss Clinton, Miss Gladding's English class, and 2l5, Miss Iones. With the completion of Kennedy General Hospital a new field of work was opened to the Iunior chap- ters. ln a drive to equip the recreations rooms at the hospital the Central group went over the top, books, games, ash trays, lamps, magazines, and morse code Page Fifty-Iwo I boards were given. At Easter, cards were provided for the soldiers to send to their loved ones. As for routine business, a new plan was inaug- urated this year. Each department of the school was represented in the Red Cross Council, in addition to the homeroom members. Art was represented by Dorothy 1-larris, English by Charlie Baer and Frances Lesser, Speech by Katherine Crowell, Music by lanice Abraham, Typing by Annelle Sparks, and Cooking by Aileene Bejach. Because each of these departments helps the Red Cross, it was thought only fair that they should have representation . Marilyn Martin was the president of the Council this year, and lean Raymond represented us at the district meetings. Miss Ada Raines and Rebecca Young were again the faculty advisors. Senior home room representatives have been: 104, leanne David, 108, Tommie Gossitt, 110, Donald Vives, 118, Don Delugach, 204, Dee Edmondson, 206, loan Franklin, 207, Katherine Carpenter, 2l2A, Celia Ray Levi, 215, lean Raymond, 307, Doris Stokes, 315, Bill Shelow. SPEECH CLUB This year Central's Speech Club dropped its mem- bership in the National Forensic League but con- tinued to maintain its chapter of Masque and Gavel. national speech organizations of which Central is a charter member. , Membership in Mask and Gavel is not limited to speech classes but is open to any student who is outstanding in speech work of any sort. Students initiated this year by Miss Rebekah Cohen were lake Blumenfeld, Ed Cook, Katherine Crowell, luanita Gossett, Muriel Hislop, Lona Mitchell, lohn Pate, Helen Claire Pierce, George Schwab, Beverly Stewart, Betty Vawter, A. G. Wellons, and Fred Willis. At Christmas time the club presented that great production, "The Christmas Gimmie." Last fall, following tradition, the Speech Club gave its annual Kay Kyser program. Mac McKaskle did the honors as "The Ole Professor," and the success of the whole show depended largely on Betty lane Kramer. Especially enjoyed were the apples and candy that the "ludges" consumed. At the National Speech Congress held at lackson, Mississippi, lake Blumenfeld, Gene Andrews, lohn Pate, and A. G. Wellons represented Central. lake and Gene won special distinction certificates for their work. ln the city contest of the Tennessee interscholastic Literary League this year Beverly Stewart won a first place in Dramatic Declamation and was entitled to go to the District Tournament at Memphis State, A. G. Wellons came second in Humorous Declama- tion, lohn Pate placed second in Boys' Original Ora- tory, Elaine Bearman was second in Girls' Original Oratory. Frank Lott was first in Boys' Oratorical Declmation, and he too was entitled to attend the tournament at Memphis State. Pugzf Fifty!-f71.l'r'ff SPANISH CLUB The Spanish Club was reorganized in this, its third year of existence. With Miss Ruth Watkins as faculty advisor, the club forgot all business formality and went all-out for a good time. ln trying to promote more fluency in speaking Spanish, the club imposed fines for the speaking of English during the meetings. ln this way enough money was gathered to have several very pleasant parties. All kinds of games and contests imaginable were played in the course of the year. At one meet- ing a Spanish treasure hunt was held. Every holiday was celebrated with an appropriate program. One method employed to help members speak Spanish more easily was the presentation of plays from time to time. Some of these, the members feel, deserve Pulitzer awards. The classes of Miss Mildred Grooms and Miss Martha Turley lack each worked up a play and presented it at a meeting. The club took an active part in the Victory Book Drive, turning in more books than any other organiza- tion in school, four of the books being brand new. A Mexican Christmas party and a surprise birth- day party for Miss Watkins were social highlights of the year. Katherine Crowell was president of the Fall term, Ed Cook in the Spring. Other seniors to hold offices during the year were Coleen Wall and Ruth Young. The seniors, who did most of the talking Cas usuall, won the prizes, and generally enjoyed themselves in the club this year, were Mabel Boone, Ed Cook, Katherine Crowell, Pauline Grodsky, Emma Francis Henley, lack Lewis, Coleen Wall, and Ruth Young. INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS "loin the International Relations Club and not only discuss world conditions, and foreign and domestic affairs, but also get an adequate education in classi- cal music, and learn to play chess." If the International Relations Club had cared to advertise, such an invitation would have been appropriate, for these were the activities of the club in its second year of existence. Discussions this year were based primarily on Russia, our relationship to her, and her part in the war. Other programs were arranged on "lapan," "Post War Problems," "Africa," and "Pan-America," The members purchased a world map, together with tiny flags of the nations at war. As territory was gained or lost, flags were moved. A glance at the map told just what territory was under whose domination. ' Because the members were interested in classical music, Miss Dorothy Metz, faculty advisor, invited the club tg her home several times to listen to her admirable collection of records--hence the "musical education." The international Relations Club also claims credit as originators of the chess fever that spread through Central this Spring. Officers for this years were Lester Sewell, presi- dent, Andrew Perrani, vice president, Helen Claire Pierce, secretary, Abner Shimony, treasurer. Richard Wendt and Abner Shimony were co-chairmen for the program. Senior members were Winifred Cleaves, Katherine Crowell, Pat Iohnston, Andrew Perrani, Lester Sewell, and Donald Vives. HOME ECONOMICS The Home Economics Department, headed by Mrs. Elizabeth Moss for foods and Miss Alice Woods for clothing, has endeavored to cooperate in every pos- sible way with the National Defense Program. The clothing class, in addition to its regular work, took on the job, in the fall semester, of filling a "hurry up" order of "ditty bags" for the Red Cross. Ann Burkette, Betty Creamer, and Ray Ellen Lynch each headed a committee of eight to get this work done. Each of these girls has an excellent record in clothing. In a contest sponsored by the Press-Scimitar in the spring of 1942, a Central Senior, Ray Ellen Lynch, received the awards for both state and nation. For two years Ray Ellen has won the prize for original design, in the high school division. Each time, her garment went to New York for National judging. Last month she received a "sheepskin," saying that among the thirty thousand garments to be considered, her dress ranked among the fifty best. She has also the highest average of the ninety-eight students in Miss Woods' classes. On the first Tuesday in each month the food classes make over five hundred cookies for the Iunior Red Cross, to be sent to the Naval Base at Millington. The advanced classes have emphasized their work on the thirty-hour course offered by the National Red Cross Nutrition Committee. All classes have put spe- cial emphasis on the preparation of food, so as to tur- nish the daily requirement of nutriants, according to the National Nutrition Committee Standards. They have aimed to prepare food that looks attractive, and is palatable and nutritious. Table-setting, serving, and entertaining, with emphasis on management, have been among their chief activities. The Foods Department is trying to develop good home managers and not just good cooks. ART Central has always been proud of her Art Depart- ment, and this year it has been well worthy of her pride. Under the able guidance of its director, Miss Clara Schneider, this group of students has passed another milestone toward true appreciation and interpretation of art. Notable among their accomplishments was the recognition given the school by the OPA for the post- ers submitted in the contest which the Memphis schools were invited to enter. One of the seniors, Ruth Young, won an honorable mention. Along the same patriotic lines, students representing each home room made posters for our scrap drive. Here, too, Ruth's poster was among the winners. One hundred Christmas menu covers for a United States battleship and a hundred Thanksgiving covers for the Naval Training Station at Millington were de- signed and make by Dorothy Harris, the Red Cross representative for the Art Department, by the silk screen process. The Art Department has always combined the theory of color and design with their application. lf you should pass the old Warrior room, next to Miss Mauzy's room, any time in the Spring and see it blooming with every kind of flower under the sun land some that aren'tl, don't be alarmed. lt's not some gardening fiend that has taken it over, it's the feminine members of the Art Department stenciling everything from table cloths and scarfs to the latest thing in summer dresses. Margaret Holdford was asked to demonstrate the stenciling process as a fea- ture during Art Week last winter. Other crattwork taught included glass-etching, enamel wood-craft, and clay modeling. The Senior Class is proud of Central's Art Depart- ment and joins the whole school in saying, "Thank you, Miss Schneider, for the excellent training you are giving Central students in Art." PHOTOPLAY CLUB With excellent officers both terms, the Photoplay Club has enjoyed a successful year. The program chairman placed chief emphasis upon the reviewing of motion pictures. Through the Better Films- Council, members again secured the privilege of attending downtown theaters free as "junior re- viewers," and they reported at meetings on the pic- tures seen. Frequent debates, contests, and other in- teresting features enlivened the sessions. ' Plans made in the fall to follow up last year's suc- cess, "Fire and Fury," with another original movie, had to be given up as a casualty of war. impossibil- ity of buying film and other equipment made it nec- essary to wait for better times. However, the Club held a contest for securing plots from students, and awarded prizes to Ruth Howlett and Kathleen Wil- kins, their fine stories will be kept for future use. As a result of last year's accomplishment, the Pho- toplay Club received a request from Mrs. Louise B. Clark, director of Brooks Memorial Art Gallery, to make a news reel, in technicolor of Art Week in Mem- phis. William Smith and Percy Perkins responded by making the film. The Park Commission donated one hundred dollars for expenses and had no reason to regret its generosity, everyone who saw the picture when it was shown at the local gallery praised it highly. Mrs. Clark later sent the film to an artists' con-- vention in New York City. Recently the Photoplay Club started a project to secure a 16 mm. projector for Central High School. To help raise funds, they gave a resliowing of "Fire and Fury." Officers for the first term were Molly Sparr, Presi- dent, Louise Stanton, Vice-President, Frances Keaton, Secretary, Dorothy Harris, Treasurer, Kathleen Wil- kins, Program Chairman. Officers of the second term Page' I"ifty-four were Kathleen Wilkins, President, Louise Stanton, Vice- Presidentg Ann McFadden, Secretary, Molly Sparr, Treasurer, Ruth Newman, Program Chairman. Senior members were Ed Cook, Cliff Cowherd, Ed Eels, Ann Massey, William Smith, Allene Wheeler, Martha Wheeler, and Kathleen Wilkins. THE GARDEN CLUB The Garden Club is one of the most essential clubs at Central. Through its efforts, since its organization, the school grounds have changed miraculously from a drab and unkept "yard" to the attractively land- scaped and well kept campus of today. The funds to accomplish this transformation were derived from the annual fall Magazine Drive, now a sort of Central "tradition," and the spring member- ships in the Garden Club, subscribed to by the home rooms. This year the Magazine Drive was not push- ed, as it followed on the heels ot the very successful scrap metal drive. The proceeds were only 375, about two-thirds the sum realized in previous years, Misses Alice Parr and Virgie Seffens are co-chair- men of the group, to which ten other teachers belong. The membership drive was held in March, gaining many members among the home rooms. A small white banner with the words "Garden Club Member, l943" in green letters is pasted on the door of each home room that joined. Fifteen years ago a well-known landscape archi- tect drew the plans for the planting on the campus. Now that this work has been finished, the funds re- ceived are used for upkeep and replanting, The iris bed on the North Campus gave a good deal of pleasure this year. lt provided blossoms for the Honor Society initiation in April. Besides, in further- ance of a custom of some years, large vases of flowers were sent to Miss Mahler, retired assistant principal, and to the Methodist Hospital in appreciation of that institution's many courtesies to Central students. I Prudence Todd Cleltl and Mabel Boone are two of the many Centralites who won scholarships this year. Both received a scholarship to South- western. Prudence was Commissioner of War Activities during the Spring term and took an active part in Student Government. Mabel was editor ot the Warrior in the Fall. I'uglc' Filly-li1'4' CENTRAL HIGH WARRIOR VOL XXX-NO. 17 MAY 25. Scrap Drive, Senior Officers, Student Government Highlight F all Term The first edition of the WARRIOR appeared on Sep- tember 24. Mabel Boone was the newly elected editor, and she served very capability in her capacity. The Scrap Drive, sponsored by city newspapers and locally by the Central Student Government, monopo- lized the headlines of the majority of the Fall WAR- RIORS. But the drive well deserved the top honors, for Central proved itself well by bringing in more scrap than any other city school. The election of the Senior Class officers also took a top spot in the headlines. The election was closely contested, and it proved to make good story-matter in the later editions. The Student Government spring election made the usual "24 point" headlines when Marjorie Radford was elected President. Since Margie was the third girl president in twenty years of Student Govrenment, her election was really news. The Sports columns contained the usual Fall dope on the Tech-Central football classic. Warren Leffler made the Sports page headlines when he went to the fnals in the Golden Gloves Tournament. The major part of the Editorials were devoted to the emphasis of the importance of helping to win the war. Everything from supporting the scrap drives to writing the boys in the armed services was sug- gested. The Wahoo Edition was very successful and was acclaimed by many as the "best yet."

The rationing of food found Central ready to help the government, and school was dismissed for five days while teachers and some students helped register thousands for food rationing. The program carried on by the school for the registering of applicants make front page news in the WARRIOR on March 1. The examination of all Senior boys by the City Health Department to find their ailments and have them corrected before graduation also made front- page news. Probably the most written-up story of the Spring was the aptitude exams taken by all Seniors who wished to qualify for the Navy College Training Pro- gram CV-l2j. Much was written on the explanation of the requirements, the composition of the test, and the praising of the boys who passes their preliminary exams. The basketball team made the biggest headlines of the year when the Central cagers annexed the Second District Title to their list of wins. Although the WARRIOR arrived too late to be judged in the highschool newspaper competition, our wounds were healed when Patsy Campbell, a junior and then Feature Editor of the WARRIOR, was elect- ed Secretary of the Mississippi Valley Press Associa- tion.
