"Freedom of the people, by the people and for the peoplel' has been chosen as
the theme of the 1945 TOP NoTt1HiiR. 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.

HISTIIHY UF THE CLASS IJF'1l5
On September first, nineteen hundred and forty-one, the team, "Seventh Grade," ran
onto the court. 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
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
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.
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
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
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."

This, the Hrst edition of the yearbook of the Milner High School, has been named THE
TOP NOTCHER. 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.
We hope you like the 1945 TOP NOTCHER as much as we've liked planning it for you.

With the organization of the Harmony
Class, the Music Department has come
to be a full-grown, well-rounded de-
partment. 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.

The High School Glee Club is a well established feature of our school activities. 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.

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
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
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-
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.

We, the class of forty-Eve,
Hate to say good-bye,
XVe've reached the goal for which We strived
At dear Old Milner High.
We'1'e going out now into different ways,
To take up our careers of life,
But we,ll never forget our High School days,
That weive spent in Milner High.
W'e hate to leave you,
The thought makes us sigh,
We'x'e enjoyed being with you,
Here at Milner High.
Together we've spent happy days,
Anti, of course, unhappy ones too,
XVe've come at last, to our parting ways,
Dear juniors we'll leave the task to you.
XVe'll never forget you
And how long we strived
And how long We went to,
Our Dear Milner High.
But now we must leave you.
We must fold in the fun.
XVe hate to, it's true,
But our school days are done.
