In order to preserve the memory of these activities, We have endeavored to make this Volume of the ECHO a lasting record of our high school career. To portray the events of the years, 1941-1945, which have seemed the most important to our class, has been our primary purpose. The graduates, however, are and will be able to re- minisce without a reminder of school days, but may this year book be a challenge to us to achieve greater things in the years to come. We hope it will also serve as tangible evidence to our- selves and to our friends of our accomplishments of the past, and of our dreams for the future. , iD66l1Z.CdfZ'07Z mu. .fnazgazef gutted If you meet a lady in the classroom, in the hall, or on the playground who is always Wearing a smileg who finds time to take a personal interest in every student-what he does and what hebecomesg who never turns a deaf ear to anyone in need of help or adviceg who does more than her share of "honest-to- goodness" Work with never one Word of complaint or self-praiseg and who is, we think, a very fine person-that lady is Mrs. lvlargaret B. Garrett. Mrs. Garrett has taught many of us and, through her example and teaching, has made a lasting impres- sion upon our minds. For these reasons and many others too numerous to list here, we, the Seniors of 1945, with pride and gratitude dedicate this volume of the ECHO. Honor .Miss Cffsie JM. cldjzigbf VVe believe in giving honor where honor is due. There- fore We are happy to place on our honor roll this year a teacher who has unostensibly but cheerfully rendered so many services to the students, teachers and principal that vve want her and the public to know thatiwe are appreciative of it all. Never one to boast of her own Work and activity, she gets things done-and a lot of them. For her untiring efforts on our behalf, the Sen- iors, as well as the whole student body, honor IVHSS ELSIE WRIGHT. czculzgf I MISS VIRGINIA F. RUFF MR. HUGH D. McKEE GMRS. MARGARET B.

Everyone of us was bubbling over with joy that he was be- ginning his high school career. But deeper than that lay a sensation of wonder-and perhaps a little dread-of what was in Store for the coming four years. There were fifty of us then and each year we have lost a number of our classmates-a sizeable group to the armed forces, many to in- dustry and a few to enter into marriage and various other enterprizes. This, our last school term, 1944-1945, opened with twenty students continuing the march toward graduation. Already two boys, Elton Hite and Albert King, have left us to serve with Uncle Sam. Jack Newman and Layton Franklin, sailor and soldier respectively, joined the armed forces during the summer previous to the opening of this school year. We hope there will be no others to leave before the year is completed. Below is a calendar of the events of the years, 1941-1945, and the officers who have guided us: F RESHMAN YEAR-1941-1942.

V May 10-The juniors entertained us with a formal reception in the Home Economics Cottage. From June 3rd to June 6th, we brought to a close our school career with the graduation ex- ercises, our theme being "Faith in Ourselves." Upon the completion of four happy and profitable years, we are leaving Montvale High for broader and more varied fields of study. With our motto, "Faith in Ourselves," and' a high re- gard for others, we will succeed. We can! We will! We must! - NANCY FORGIE-GERALDINE LANTZ ECHO 11 enior Qfcers DICK BROWN-President Pep, personality, and a capacity for leadership have placed him in an im- portant executive position as senior pres- ident and editor of the "ECHO." With a peculiar bent for flying, arguing and a certain sophomore lass, there is no doubt that Dick will continue to "fly high" in all his enterprizes. ELTON HITE-Vice-President Blonde, companianable, easy going- Elton is everybody's friend. Where sports are concerned, Elton's enthusiasm is up and above par. He left at midterm for the Navy. May the future bring smooth sailing. ALMA ST. CLAIR--Secretary Reliable, fun loving, and intelligent! An enthusiastic athlete and student, Alma has made a deep impression on her class- mates and teachers as a good sport in work as well as in play. Because of her capability and popularity, many honors have been conferred upon Alma. VIRGINIA SINK-Treasurer Virginia is one who is always ready and willing to help. Because of her pleas- ing personality she has won a hast of friends at Montvale. We wish her the best of luck in the years to came. em'or.v The AUDREY BOYLE Always teasing and laughing about any and everything, Audrey usually has some kind of answer for every question. She can oct sweet and innocent one minute and raise whoopie the next. AUDREY DOOLEY "Laugh andrbe merry" seems to be Audrey's motto, for if he isn't laughing himself he produces that effect on others. We wish there were more such people. ELSIE DOOLEY Elsie is noted for knocking home runs in soft-ball and making the top grades in history. Friendly and gay, she is a favorite with every- one and a true pal to all. NANCY FORGIE Nancy may not raise much of a riot herself, but she is an ardent supporter of those who do. She is a likeable girl and we feel sure that she will go for in her chosen field--that of nursing. JOHN FITZGERALD John is another one of those persons whose outward appearance may fool you. On the surface you may take him to be a model of good behavior, but just observe him at recess around where the girls are. ECHO 13 efziors GLADYS GILLISPIE This smiling, friendly girl is usu- ally in a good humor--except on rare occasions when things don't go to suit her. She seems peace- ful and quiet, but make no mis- take about it--Gladys is full of mischief and derives a lot of fun from life. OTEY FRANKLIN Otey is one of the quieter boys of our class, he has a tempera- ment of his own. The greatest ca- tastrophe of his young life has been his removal from the store to study hall. LILBIAN GROSS Lilbion, shy ond quiet, yet re- liable, exemplifies the adclage, "Don't stick your nose into other people's affairs. " Although he keeps very much to himself, Lil- bian is popular with his classmates. KATHRYN GIBBS Jolly, fun loving, and giggling over some situation which was meant to be serious--that's Kath- ryn. Often saying just what she thinks, she has gestures to match her opinions. BARBARA HATCHER That merry twinkle in Barbara's eye can and does mean only one thing--a flare for mischief. An en- thusiastic sports fan, she is raring to go whenever a ball game is mentioned. I 14 The QYenz'0rs JAMES KEY Neither boisterous nor mischiev- ous, James seldom offers his opin- ion about matters. Although he possesses a dignified air, he is well liked by all. ELIZABETH KING Having won the title of the pret- tiest girl in the senior class, Eliza- beth is a tall, slender brunette who is usually smiling. Very athletic minded, she displays a wholesome interest in all sports. GERALDINE LANTZ The only redhead of our class, Geraldine is forever brewing up pranks to pop on some unsuspect- ing victim. She is an active par- ticipant in all school functions- whether sport or social. DOLPHINE OVERSTREET Endowed with a love for talking, Dolly seldom runs down. Neverthe- less, she is a likeable, jolly good fellow who is ever ready to offer help. May you have a large share of the worId's success. GENEVIEVE WILKERSON This friendly, breezy young lady answers to the nickname, "Lu-Iu", as often as to Genevieve. Regard- less of what you say to her, Gene- vieve's ready reply is, "That's tough, aint it?" She aspires to be a nurse---and who could make a better one? ECHO V 7, ,, Qur G5JC'A00!Z'72, Our first year in high school-can you remember that, When everyone enjoyed calling us "rats"? lVe studied hard and tried to learn, Our first credits we did earn. In our Sophomore year we were full of hopes. By then we thought we knew all the ropes. All of us have faults-we won't pretend, But by study and hard work, all well did end, ' Some of our dear friends had left us in our third year, But on we trudged with both hope and fear. But happy we were when in reality, Seniors next year we would be. Seniors at lastl Our dreams have come true, But our studies go on-both old and new For final exams we still have our fears- The same as we did in those other years. When school is over we will be glad, it's true, But, friends, We will always remember you, And we hope you will think of us and strive To reach your goal like we, the Seniors 'of '45. So good-bye, good friends of Montvale Hig The time for parting is drawing nigh. YVe leave all our friends who are so dear, And go' out i11to the World both far and near. I ELSIE DOOLEY The Teople elbouf Qjgchool Mrs. John VV. Bolick, successor to Mrs. Coffman as teacher of the 2nd and 3rd. grade combination. Jessie Pollard, helper in the first and fifth grades. Mrs. Mose Gross and Mrs. George Obenchain, operators of the school cafe- teria.

We hate to go, but, following the laws of nature, all good things must come to an end. In parting, each member of this Senior Class wishes to will his .or her most prominent characteristic or talent to a fellow student who most deserves such a gift. First of all to the faculty members go our thanks and appreciation for the many kind- nesses shown us in the past four years. Note to the Juniors: You carry on where we are leaving off. W'e know you can do it. Sophomores fa very nice classjz May your baseball team be as good as ours. When you aresseniors we shall challenge you to a game. i Freshmen: We surrender to you the tasks of washing boards, emptying trash cans and keeping the school clean. Cheer up! Your day is coming. Now for the roll call of senior requests: I Audrey Boyle agrees to share her tallness with Ruth Lam and Kathryn Gibbs, her short- ness with Alberta Hawley. Nancy Forgie donates to Genevieve Smith her ability to find something funny in everything. Elsie Dooley yields to George iVashington Pollard, her good grades in history. Dick Brown leaves with Betty Ann. Audrey Dooley imparts his he-haw laugh to Ben Coleman. John Fitzgerald transmits to Fredrick Myers the .opportunity of driving the Goose Creek Valley bus. I Otey Franklin presents Jack Lantz with the key to the store. Next year's VVho's Who will probably list Virginia Biggs as the most outstanding in Alma St. Clair's place. Gladys Gillispie donates one of her fits of temper to Nancy Whitworth. Elizabeth King leaves a host of pleasant memories. Dolphine Overstreet leaves deep silence. t'I'hank Heavenslj The wit and cleverness of Elton Hite is granted to Bill Hawkins. James Key confers his bashfullness upon Walter Johnson. Genevieve VVilkerson hands down to Ola Kirkwood her enthusiasm to argue. Lilbian Gross surrenders his quietness to Marvin Carter. Geraldine Lantz wants Janice Newton to be her successor as "Big Boss". VVe, Barbara Hatcher and Virginia Sink, offer to Mary Patterson and Betty Frances Saunders our places on the Annual Staff. Well, that's all, folks! We are leaving, but we are not forgetting. We are gone, but hope not forgotten. .
