Feeling that a new realization of the meaning of the Red, White, and Blue of our flag has entered into the hearts and minds of American youth and has awaken in our hearts the memory of the brave men defending it, for war has come again to the World, bringing horror and destruction. Changes come, but may we as students of Milner High School pledge ourselves to hold sacred the traditions of the past, to adjust ourselves to the emergencies of the present, and to prepare ourselves for the eventualities of the future. To serve that country which offers to us a yesterday of which we are proud. a tomorrow towards which we move xvith faith and hope. XVe hope that on these pages we have presented the school activities and spirit, so that in future years you may relive in the memory of the year 1945. -160 func! of Ihr' Wee unc!

There were forty-five of us who strained our ears to hear the gong which would mean we had begun our first quarter of high school. How nervous we were! The upperclassmen looked down their noses at us from their places in the grand- stands. What an awful time we had getting our subjects and classes straightened out! Miss Reba Mangham directed the ugamen and Mr. H. C. Thomas was the ucoachf' During that year we visited Griffin to see the many points of interest there. Then the gong. sounded and one goal had been made. We all had become "S0phs." In September, nineteen hundred and forty-two, we again ran onto the court and this year we had just a little more courage than we had at the beginning of the high school "game," Many of our classmates did not return for this quarter and our "team" was broken down to thirty-four players. Mrs. Florence Brewster called the "plays" for us that year and Mr. A. H. Shuler held the position as "coach.,' During this quarter we lost Z. L. Griffin to the U. S. Navy. Our "team,' had become a little more dignified and this was rather a quiet year. The "half" was finished and another goal had been made. We were now Juniors. After having three months "time out" we entered the tenth grade. Miss Elmina McKneely directed us that quarter. Billy Burch and Doris Buice reentered our class. They had left us in the eighth grade. We also lost several players that year. Among them was Aldean Russell, Mary English, Carol Ackis, and Charles Jones. During that year we entertained the seniors with a Junior-Senior Banquet. Before we knew what had happened the third quarter was over and another goal made. We were now eligible for the Senior team. In September, nineteen hundred and forty-four, we ran onto the court for our last quarter. We had several additions to our class: Rev. Paul Swofford, james Brown from Spalding, Helen Conley and Pauline Patrick from Thomaston all entered our class. Miss Ora Lee Howard called the "plays,' this time and Mr. A. H. Shuler still remained as our "coach." It was a happy quarter but also because we knew it would be our last here at Milner High. This year we had many highlights. We were working on the first edition of the TOP NOTCHER, Milner's yearbook, and our class also held down the responsibility of the school paper, The Piper. We had fun collecting advertisements for both. We all had wonderful times during the last days here at Old M. H. S. NVe had Kid's Day, worked hard on the senior play, and the juniors gave us a banquet. Vfe ordered our caps and gowns, invitations and cards, and then the day came when we first dressed up in all our graduation finery! On Sunday, May 13, the baccalaureate sermon was delivered by Rev. J. H. Cook. Then at last, the goal we had been striving so hard to reach was made. There, in the auditorium of the dear old school house which meant so much to us, we received our diplomas which was the final goal for us as a Steam." Mr. M. D. Collins, Georgia State School Superintendent, delivered our graduation speech. So, on May 18, 1945, we walked off the court, victorious and happy, with each player going his own way into the uncer- tain future. We knew it was up to us to help make the future certain for the genera- tions to come. IM OGENE Ross Hisioriun 15 PHUPHEIIY Horrors, how I hate to go to the dentist! But, guess what? The last time I went was really a pleasure. I met every single one of my friends of high school days. You don't understand? W'ell, I guess it is a little bit difficult, at that. I have a very nice dentist, by the way, who always gives me gas, because I'm so scared. Well, this last time I had a dream, a "gas,' dream I guess you'd call it. Goodness! I found myself at the Municipal Airport in Chicago. There I was all dressed up in furs and every- thing-really quite a lady. And I was about to tour the country in an airplane. I sat down and turned around to look at my fellow passenger. He flashed me a brilliant smile and looked at me as if he knew me. I was a little bashful and began looking at my magazine very fast. As we flew on'I really worried. I didn't know anything except my name and where I was going. In fact, I didn't even know the year. I ventured to ask my companion what the date was. He looked astonished and answered 1955. Then he said, "Haven't I seen you somewhere before?" Of course it was the same old line, but something in his voice caused me to look at him and then I cried, "Why, Maurice Weldon!" He was on his way to Russia to attend a con- ference of experimental dairy farmers. As we arrived in New York, I recognized as the pilot of the plane, W'endell Morgan. He made a good looking pilot, too. W'oo, Woo! I was feeling mussed up, and headed for the first beauty parlor I could find. There I saw Helen Russell and Margery Goggins, two of the best operators in their field. I walked out on the street, and was engulfed by a cheering crowd. A car rolled down the street and I strained to see. The famous, happy-go-lucky movie star, Virgil Bevil, was in town! Didn't I know him? Why, of course I did! It was Barron, our glamour boy of '45. Then I heard an awful noise. A Ere truck was coming in my direction at a terrihc speed. As it whizzed by I saw james Brown as the drivcr. Like all the crowd, I ran to the fire, as it was only a few blocks away, and there writing it up, was Imogene Ross, star reporter for the New York Timer. I'd seen enough of New York, so I caught the next plane out. I really didn't know where I was going, but I ended up in a quiet little town in Ohio, How Mitchell Abbott ever got there l'll never know, but there he was, a very prosperous merchant. Pauline Patrick also resided there. She was writing articles for a current magazine. I had a little legal business to attend to, so I went to the mayor's office. Who should be in the reception room but Mildred Shicrling. I asked her how she got way up there and she said the mayor was her husband. I had a surprise when I saw the mayor, for it was none other than Harold Conger, with a big cigar and plaid coat-a real politician. I was anxious to see more of my old friends, so at Salt Lake City I really did find one. None other than Evelyn Reeves. She told me that the physics she had learned at Old Milner High had led her to further study. Now she was working on a plan to convert thc salt in the water of the city into sugar. She still remembered rationing. 16 As we were walking down the street, we saw a handsgme naval oflicer coming toward us. People were crowding around him and as he came closer we saw that it was J. T. Becker, a famous hero. I took a plane straight to California. There I met Elise Lingold, about to begin her first motion picture. She was a wealthy debutante in the picture. From there I went to Mexico City on my way to South America. I hardly expected to meet anybody I knew-Billy Burch was the first one, because of his red hair. He was interviewing passengers from the street. Billy owns the whole Mexican Radio System and directs all the musical programs himself. Oradelle Bedsole, Reba Weldon, and Helen Conley were talent scouts for him and had just left for Cuba on the trail of a new rumba band. Exciting South America!! I wanted to see all the sights. I saw some of the great bridges that Hugh Turner had built. He was a famous engineer. Colleen Piper was in the oice at the airport where I got my ticket home. She was having a wonderful time in South America, and spoke Spanish faster than lightning. At last I was on my way home. I hadn't realized it before but I was awfully homesick. I had a headache and called for the stewardess on the plane, and it was Retha Nell Cain. She said that Emma Lee Clark, a teacher in the Miami school system, was going to meet her when we reached Miami. Luck was with me, for when I got to jacksonville I saw Katherine Thornton in one of the biggest hotels there. She was the hostess and she looked very happy and successful. Frances Martin had a room next to mine. She was dressed in the uniform of the XY'aves, She said that after school she had joined and had liked it so much that she just stayed in the service. On the streets of jacksonville I met J. H. Martin. He said he had a surprise for me, and took me out to the beach. There I saw R. L. Blackwell, Billy Johnston, Z. L. Griffin, and Edwood Piper. They owned their own line of fishing boats and were taking life easy. H. was the con- tact man because all the others were experienced in navai affairs. I decided to come the rest of the way by train. I'd had enough of airplanes. I was surprised when the conductor came through for it was none other than Vernon Reeves. On the train was Elwood Tingle. He was a traveling salesman for Dobb's Hats. In Savannah I met Frances Crawford. She said she was working with Dorothy Conkle in Norfolk, Virginia, in their own dress designing establishment. She was having a wonderful time, she told me that Mr. Swolford was re- ligious educational director for the Southeastern States with headquarters in Richmond. Heavens! I'd been dreaming! I was just in the dentist's office and he'd finished pulling a tooth, and I was ready to go home. I said to myself, "Oh well, Patsy, old girl, it was a beautiful DREAM, anyway."

It is the desire of the staff to take the highlights of a year and Weave them into a book that will quickly call back the happiest days in the life of any student-the memories of those days spent at their Alma Mater.

Of course, the importance of Music Theory cannot be over esti- mated, While efforts have been made in this direction with individual pupils over a number of years, it was not until the spring of 1944 that a class was completely organized. The mem- bers of the class are doing good work and show a keen interest. They are studying some of the facts about musi- cal composition which will throw a great deal of light on the music they play, sing and hear. ifwholsw gil 77fZusz'c BARBARA GOEN NTARINELLIE XSVELDON Moxf Vrrsrlfilr Moxf Olzfsfamlifzg in Piano Mos!

Through- out a period of years, it has functioned in various Ways, not only in school recitals, but also in cantatas and concerts in which it has been the center of attraction. Naturally its membership and formation fluctuate from time to time to keep pace with the musical needs of the students. In the last District Music Festival held in 1942, the Glee Club gave a good account of itselfg but past achievements are not the things that interest the club, nearly so much as looking forward to even more important activities. OFFICERS COLLEEFI MANN . . . . . Prrsirlcnf MARINELLE NVELDON . . Program Chairman FRANCES CRAWFORD . . . . Secrefury J. T. BECKER . . . Treasurer 31 We, the Senior Class of Milner High School, do hereby claim to be of a sound mind. We do in as sound a mind as we are supposed to possess, bequeath on the eighteenth day of the sixth month in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and forty-five, a few of our over-developed talents to the Juniors. These gifts shall be transferred and shall take effect at twelve o'clock midnight, Central High School Standard War Time, in accordance with Miss McKneely's alarm clock which is exactly eight minutes slow with Mr. Shulerls watch. The following make our individual request: We, Mac Brown and Wendell Morgan, leave our Mutt and jeff friendship to Billy Moore and Donald Hutto provided Donald does not grow up and Billy does not grow down. I, Helen Russell, leave my family affairs to Delma Eu- banks. May Delma have better luck than I had. We, Oradelle Bedsole and Reba Weldon, leave our athletic prowess to Annie Laura Willard because we think she needs it. I, Elise Lingold, leave my engagement to Fannie Lou Martin. Heaven knows, I can't manage it myself! I, Mitchell Abbott, leave my quiet voice and pleasant smile to Jack Mullins, but jack will have to come to school to get them. I, T. Becker, leave my part in the senior play to joe Pearman. joe must keep his lisp to qualify. I, Barron Bevil, the Play Boy of '45, leave my uncon- tested title to Claude Milner. Indifference is my motto. I, Retha Nell Cain, leave my blush to Edna Conkle. She can have the giggle that goes with it at half price. I, Billy Burch, leave my standing with the faculty to Billy House because we have to keep it in the family. I, Harold Conger, leave my sweet demurc manners to Thomas Poss just to "tone" him down a little. I, Dorothy Conkle, leave enough A's for graduation to Dorothy Crawley. With these in reverse Dorothy can court between each period. I, Patsy Crawley, leave my "permanent wave" to the Hrst rainy day of September. I, Frances Crawford, leave my long hair to be equally divided between the two Dorothy English's, Dorothy A. and Dorothy K. I, Margery Goggins, leave my romances to Annie Ruth Edwards provided each man is in uniform. I, Colleen Piper, leave my blonde hair to Thelma Kinard provided Thelma believes that gentlemen perfer blondes. I, Maurice Weldon, leave my executive ability and "dig- nity" to Jack Pilgrim but Jack must be president of at least three organizations. I, Imogene Ross, leave my full pocketbooks and my white tennis shoes to Marinell Weldon on the condition that she carries everything she is requested to and is constantly on hand as referee for Mr. Shuler. W'e, Katherine Thornton and Pauline Patrick, leave our back seats in the eleventh grade room to Mary John Martin and Bessie Mae Brinkley. I, Mildred Shierling, leave my wild excitement to Colleen Mann. I, Hugh Turner, leave my chronic complaints to Mary Ethel Boles but she must never solve any of the problems. I, Paul Swofford, leave my soothing and stabilizing in- fluence to Marjorie Head, knowing that she will use rlicm for the best effect on her class. We, Vernon Reeves and Elwood Tingle, joyously and exuberantly with never a regret leave school. I, Frances Martin, leave Donald to jack Waits. It really wouldn't be safe to leave him to a girl. I, Helen Conley, leave my basketball suit to Geraldine Crawford hoping she gets to wear it more than I did. I, Emma Lee Clark, leave my red jacket to Opal jones provided she keeps the pockets full of other people's be- longings. I, Evelyn Reeves, leave my "handiman jobs" to Vonceil Lott hoping that they will give her as many free periods as they have given me. Hereunto this fifteenth day of May I hereby set my seal.
