TO THE CENTRAL GRADUATES, who will soon be
a part ot the Armed Services of our country, we ded.-
cate this issue of the WARRIOR.
We have no doubt that these boys will prove
a credit to their friends, to Central High School, and
to their country.
We are proud of all who will light and kill the
power and meaning ol all the "isms" except the true
one, American"ism". May the symbol of American-
ism, the American flag, always fly over Central, and
every other school, home, and establishment in these

livery Senior appreciates the guidance and help
given to him at one time or another by Mr. Iester.
We've all had our Nups and downs" with him, but
always he has given us sound and sincere advice
that we would do well to follow.
May we always try to live up to the high standards
and ideals he has striven to teach us, and, as his
"sons and daughters," we hope that we may be able
to remember his counsels as we go out into this war-A
torn world. 1

The Launching of the Centralite
A gallery of faces:
to grasp the quicksilver of life.
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
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
for the fearful future ....
Eyes upward and hearts beating
to the roar of a mighty bomber . . .
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 in words,
power in paint,
power in numbers.
Endless frames of faces
Each one a ship,
large or small
but each with a purpose . .
launched from its cradle
to plunge into the water
with a crash of lashing spray.
And the newly laid keel
for the call of the open sea.

CORN? BUSTEP STAR TIGER LILY SARGE
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
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-
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-
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
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
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
"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
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
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.

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
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
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
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-
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.
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
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,
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
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

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
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
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,
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
The faculty sponsors are Misses Dorothy Green,
chairman, Mildred Grooms, Birdie McGrath, Mary
Rather, Nell Stewart, Vermonta Wilson, and Mr. I. D.

I2. 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
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
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
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
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.
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
This highly trained organization not only performed
as an individual group, but they combined with other
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

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

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.

Since 19ll, when it was organized as the first
school club, the "H" Club has claimed the member-
ship of some of the most respected and outstanding
students in Central. 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.
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.
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.
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.

of the sports department by polishing off the sup-
posedly strong Yellowjackets, the Warrior' eleven

Front Row fleft. to riglitl-Jack Hall, Louis Napier, Clar-
ence Cotten, Lynn Maness, A. G. Wellons. 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

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
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

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-
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

"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.

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.

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.

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
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.

Before the actual opening of the track season, Cen-
tral fans looked ruefully around in search of a set of
Cinder men that might be able to follow in the foot-
steps of the superb Warrior team of 1942. 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
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
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-
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

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

the game. Late in the contest, with the bases loaded,
A. G. Wellons blasted a triple and gave Central the
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.
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

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
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.
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.
Although the Central golf foursome had not played

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.

This year Central's Warriors came through in style
in the annual Golden Gloves tournament.
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
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-
"Birds" Leffler has really put Central on the map,
as far as boxing is concerned.
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
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.
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
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-

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-
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
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:

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

tournament at Memphis State.
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

"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,"
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

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

claims credit as originators of the chess fever that
spread through Central this Spring.
Officers for this years were Lester Sewell, presi-

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

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

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.
Central has always been proud of her Art Depart-

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

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."
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

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.
Prudence Todd Cleltl and Mabel Boone are two
of the many Centralites who won scholarships
this year. Both received a scholarship to South-
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.
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-
The Wahoo Edition was very successful and was
acclaimed by many as the "best yet."

Spring Headlines Monopoiized By
Rationing, Navy Aptitude Tests
A glance at the Spring term WARRIOR shows how
a war can really make news for a newspaper. 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-
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
The basketball team made the biggest headlines
of the year when the Central cagers annexed the
