Sarah Barclay " Stuff” " Describe her, uho cant” Attractiveness, friendliness, determination, and a bit of sophistication. That’s Sarah. Florence Viola Barnard " Mutt” " Friendship is constant in all things.” A timid, shy, reserved per- son. " Mutt” is a good sport, and when she attempts any- thing, she succeeds. Morrison will miss her. Anna Christine Brooks " Ann” " Such grace of form we’ve never seen. Not even possessed by heavenly queens.” Everyone likes " Ann” and she, in her wonderful spirit of good fellowship, likes every- one else. She is the prettiest girl in our class and that’s saying quite a bit. Janet Gray Brooks " Lambie” " Faithful friends are bard to find.” Once you’ve found a friend like Janet, you’ve found a real and faithful friend. Janet is not only a fine friend but also a good student. We know she will be a success in life. Robert Gilbert Brooks " Bobby” " The sweetest joy, the wildest woe is loie.” " Bobby’s” place on the team and also his place in our school life will be hard to fill. He is good-natured and en- dowed with a winning per- sonality, which has won him many friends. Hattie Brown " JlBETTS” " Always faithful.” Quiet dignity, a sunny dis- position, studiousness and in- telligence are characteristics which we all admire in Hat- tie. She looks on the bright side of everything. We hold no fear for her future. Marian Elizabeth Cooke " Cookie” " A delightsome ' Cookie’.” Marian smiles except when she asks, " Is it two o’clock yet?” and is told it is not. We predict that " Cookie” will become a famous musician some day, as she is talented and very fond of music. Audrey Virginia Cox " Boots” r ' As merry as the day is long.” Audrey’s splendid work on our annual will be remem- bered by all. She is a friendly and capable girl as well as an ideal student. Nina Wilson Dadds " Willie” " To know her is to loie her.” Our " Willie” is a very studi- ous girl, with a kind word for everyone. She is quiet, but once you get to know her, she is full of life. Mildred Evadne Denton " Hookey” " l hasten to ' laugh at everything for fear of being obliged to weep.” " Hookey” is one of the most athletic girls in the Senior Class. We shall all miss her quick wit and ready smile when she leaves old M. H. S. Nf.cia Mae Diffenderfer " A soft answer turneth away wrath.” Although Necia is quiet and dignified, you can never for- get her once you meet her. She has always been good in everything she has under- taken to do, and is willing to help those who are in need. You can depend on Necia. Herman Anton Ehmig, Jr. " Bill” rr A friend is worth all hazards we can run.” " Bill” the good - natured, friendly president of the High Hatters, came to us two years ago from Richmond. The question we would like to have answered is " Do the girls like Bill as much as he likes them?” Stanley S. Evans " Evans” " All mankind loie a lover.” ■Stanley is a pal to everyone and has made many friends in M. IT. S. He has been suc- cessful as an athlete and also as a -student. His wavy hair and stylish dress will be missed by all. Eliza beth Louise Ellison " Libby” " And her modest answer and graceful air.” " Libby” is small, but capable and pleasant. She has many friends. Helen Estelle Fulcher " Stell” " Let’s have music, for my feet will not stand still.” " Stell” dances well, has many friends, loves to go to parties, and, with it all, is a good student. Edna Louise Harris " Trick” " Laugh and the world laughs •with yon.” In the corner of the room from which comes the sound of merry laughter, there you will find Edna. Here’s hop- ing we will always find her full of mirth and in the bright corner of life. George Wilson Holleman " Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee.” As our youngest and " most original” boy in the Senior Class, George takes the " cake” for being witty and quiet. Henry Clifton Holleman " Jerkem” " It shall be done.” " Jerkem,” who has played two years of varsity football, leaves behind an enviable rec- ord, both as a student and as an athlete. His determination and strong willpower mean that, once a job is started, it will be finished. L. Roy Holliday " Daffy” " The crest and crowning of all good, Life’s final star, is Brotherhood.” This tall young man is popu- lar with both girls and boys. He is shy but mischievous and good-natured. Dorothy Elizabeth Holloway " Dot” " An ideal girl in every way, the kind of friend not found every day.” Here’s to " Dot” with her friendly ways and blushing smile! She is capable and full of fun, and has won the af- fection of her classmates. Marguerite Frances Holloway " Peggy” " Still waters run deep.” " Peggy’s” quiet voice and well poised manners have en- deared her to all of her class- mates. Concealed beneath her serenity is a sparkling person- ality which will enable her to reach the top. Katheryn Genevieve Howser " Gen” " You have a nimble wit.” She is one of our best all- round girls — not only at- tractive and popular, but a very good athlete. This com- bination spells success. Mary Alice Hussey " M’Alice” " Wondrous is the strength of cheerfulness.” " M’Alice” is a good sport and a true friend. She doesn’t talk very much, but is con- scientious and always willing to aid her classmates. Sarah Emelein Jenkins " Sweetpea” " And friends whose loyalty time nor death shall weaken.” We all love her, and how can we help it? " Sweetpea” is loyal and friendly. Her out- standing quality — friendliness — will bring her happiness and success in the future. Evelyn Lee Keane " Cutie” " What is popular descries attention.” Here’s to Evelyn, cutest girl in the Senior Class. With a heart full of mirth and friendliness, " Cutie” always greets you with a smile. Dorothy Friend Kesler " Dot” " A friend indeed” Dorothy has been with us only one year, but we have all come to like her. She is very witty and makes friends easily. Whenever we see her chewing gum, we know that she is at her best. Virginia Lee Knight " Ginger” " She is all that a friend should he.” " Ginger” is a very studious and intelligent girl. Without her as a pianist, the Glee Club could not get along. All those who are in her presence capitulate to her ready smile. Charlotte Harris Langslow " A voice low and sweet is an excellent thing in woman.” Quiet, gentle, lovable, studi- ous, all these can be said of Charlotte. Her pleasant smile has made friends, not only with the class of ’36, but with the entire school. Mary Katherine Layman " Mary Kate” " Never too sober, never too gay, A rare, good girl in every way.” All who know Mary, know her to be a bright, friendly, quiet girl as well as a jolly and fun-loving one. Mary is no slacker; she performs every task with the greatest thoroughness and cheerful- ness. John Williams Massenburg, Jr. " Either I will find a way or 1 will make one. " During our two years’ ac- quaintance with John, he has shown his ability as a student. His arguments will be missed in history class. His grit, de- termination and willingness to work will win success for him in life. Ruth Gray McKinney " Rufus” " Gentle of speech, heneficient in mind.” " Rufus” is an attractive, am- bitious and clever girl. Her work as " Editor of the War- wick” indicates that she will succeed in whatever profes- sion she chooses. Nadine McQuillen " Dunif.” " Life is accomplishment, not mere existence.” Nadine is a jolly girl, always lending a helping hand. She is friendly and she has made us love her for the kindness she shows to others. Frances Elizabeth Owens " Tinymite” " Choice makes our friends.” " Tinymite” is always jolly and full of life. She has made many friends, especially among the male sex, during her three and one-half years at Morrison High. Lena Mae Paris " Lee” " Silence is golden.” Although " Lee” seems to be quiet and timid, she is a good sport and lots of fun. Her pleasant manner has won her many friends in the two years she has been with us. We are sure she will climb high on the ladder of success. Lena Maxine Redman " Max” " Precious articles come in small packages.” " Max” has a host of friends at M. H. S. She is a happy-go- lucky girl. She takes life as it comes and lets the future take care of itself. Neoma Redman " It matters not bow long we live, but hoie.” Neoma is conscientious, somewhat dignified and very quiet until you learn to know her. She delights in helping others, no matter what the task may be. Though she is not a " man-hater,” she does not particularly care for the opposite sex. Margaret Louvina Salisbury " Peggy” " To bale friends is to be one.” " Peggy” is a quiet, sweet girl always willing to help someone. We wish her luck in her future years. There is nothing too good for her; she deserves the best of every- thing. Robert Wade Seward, Jr. " Sister” " Full of wise saws and modern instances.” A professor mentally, but a jester in actions — that’s " Sis- ter” Wade. Here’s a Senior that will never be forgotten because of his bright remarks and winning personality. Margaret Mae Shenk " Smiget” " The mildest manners with the bravest mind.” Here’s to " Smiget,” our most typical Senior She has won for herself a place in the hearts of her classmates. She is loyal, studious and intel- ligent. Nellie Pearl Smith " Nell” " Those who smile arc smiled upon.” " Nell” is one of our most de- termined seniors. She pos- sesses wit and a very clever mind. With these character- istics she is bound to succeed. Elizabeth Snowden Thompson " Betty” " An ounce of wit is worth a pound of sorrow.” In spite of the fact that she is our biggest pest, " Betty” is not as bad as she sounds. She is always cheerful, ener- getic and a good sport. Her energy should accomplish whatever she wishes to un- dertake in life. Floy Virginia Warren " Genny” " To be loved, be lovable.” Here’s to Virginia — she is not only the most attractive but the wittiest girl in the Senior Class. With her ambition, she may be expected to make her way in the world. Vera Virginia Wells " Tillie” " True hearted, whole hearted, loyal and faithful.” " Tillie,” our best all-round girl, is a friend and favorite of all who know her. She is capable, kind and jolly, and is sure to make her mark in life. Thomas Rufus White " Squeaky” " Great oaks from little acorns, grow.” Rufus is the most studious boy in the Senior Class, and his studying isn’t all in vain, as the results have shown. Rufus has a great number of friends who will miss him and long remember him for his kind deeds. Doris Wilson Wiseman " Dot” " Temp’ rate in every place — abroad, at home, Thence will applause, and hence will profit come.” If you follow " Dot’s” advice, you may not wear diamonds, but you will keep out of trouble at school. Her easy- going, cheerful disposition has endeared her to the class of ’ 36 . Bethany Virginia Wood " Beth” " Lore spends his all, and still has store.” " Beth” is our " most-in-love” girl. She has been with us four years and has proved a faithful student to Morrison High. She has a great future planned, and we know she will succeed. Helen Lois Baege Woodlief " Auntie Helen” " If she will, she will; you may depend on it, If she won ' t, she won’t; there’s an end on it.” Cleverness and attractiveness describe Helen. This young New Yorker has been very friendly to us, and we will miss her original ideas when she goes. CLASS HISTORY " The Peak of Success” Morrison High School and its faculty have helped the Senior Graduating Class of 1 936 climb successfully to the " Peak of Succcsss.” We appreciate every effort and kindness bestowed upon us by the Faculty and Board and hope they have enjoyed being with us as much as we have with them. The Graduating Class of 1936 toiled earnestly and faithfully to achieve this glory. The First Ledge — I n the year 1 93 2 a large group of inexperienced climbers began to ascend toward the summit. Scared greenhorns scrambled wildly hither and thither up the mountain side, affording the guides and experienced climbers much amusement and anxiety. So the older climbers decided at the beginning of the climb to initiate the rats, much to the victims’ discomfort. Therefore the Freshmen thought it wise to form a clan and elect leaders to govern them. They elected a very capable and trustworthy leader, Vera Wells. They finished their ascent to the first ledge, uneventfully and successfully, and stopped at the foun- tain there to enjoy a small vacation. Second Ledge — Our rested and haughty climbers continued on their journey a little more experienced but inclined to be conceited. On the way to the third ledge they met a new group of climbers who had just started the upward course and the Sophomores initiated them. A little later the Sophomores reelected Vera Wells as their leader and appointed other officers. Pausing in their arduous journey, the group decided to give a musical play, which the Sophomores helped produce successfully. After reaching the third ledge, they had another rest period. Third Ledge — A smaller group of intellectual Juniors began to ascend the mountain, more experienced and thoughtful than before. They elected a new and efficient leader, Ruth McKinney, and a group of new officers to help and guide them on their way. On the way to the fourth and last ledge the Juniors decided to give the Senior climbers and the guides a banquet. Everyone appreci- ated the banquet and had loads of fun. The Juniors, desiring some significant emblem to bind them together, made rings of grass to confirm their friendship. In order to celebrate this important occasion they held Crigler’s Minstrel. They finished their climb, happy and tired, and looking forward to their last journey together. Fourth Ledge — A large, dignified class of Seniors started out from the fourth ledge to climb to the " Peak of Success.” Some were new friends and some were old friends, but all true friends and comrades to each other. Immedi- ately after starting on their final climb, they appointed Robert Brooks as their leader. Halfway the group becomes nervous and excited; they were coming to difficulties, rocks, or so-called mid-term exams. The group passed over these after much hard work and labor and began their fun, occasionally coming upon smaller rocks. The Seniors had one continued round of joy and fun together. They had parties, pictures, entertainments, plays. Suddenly the Seniors were almost within touch of their aim, when a large group of rocks arose ahead, in front of the Peak. They passed these mighty obstacles, successfully and joyfully. They, graduajed climbers, stand on the Peak of their aim, a little sad and a little proud, looking out into the mystery of the future. ESTELLE FULCHER, ’3 6. CLASS PROPHECY Folks! Tonight you arc about to witness the first public trial of the radio- scope screen, invented and perfected in our joint laboratory by my distinguished former classmate. Doctor John Massenburg. The screen is designed to reflect the words and actions ot any person at any point on the earth. With it we will attempt to contact the other members of the graduating class of five y ears ago. Doctor Massenburg, throw the switch. First, we find on a Tidewater truck-farm a dark-eyed farmerette. It is Helen Woodlief who, although a New Yorker, has not lost her interest in Hicks. Next the scene shifts to an operating room. The doctor? Bill Ehmig, now the world’s greatest surgeon. The nurse? Virginia Warren, his trusted assistant. The patient? Luther Alexander, leader of Alexander’s Jazz-Time Band, in which the talented Miss Jenkins plays second fiddle, and Rufus White earns his title " Sultan of the Sax.” The operation? Renewing Luther’s permanent wave. Another shift. This time to Floyd Bennet Field. Why has this crowd gathered? To celebrate the return of George Hollcman, who flew to Venus last week to instruct the Venusians in the gentle art of caddying. Plans for his plane, the Forcstine, were drawn by Bobby Brooks. There is a disturbance on the edge of the crowd. Mildred Denton, truant officer, has collared two young students who have played " hooky.” Their names are Estelle and Russell Weade. Now silence. A laboratory, in which a group of learned men gather around two attractive young misses, one a blonde, the other auburn-haired. They are Peggy Salisbury and Virginia Knight, co-discoverers of the ninety-third element, Salisbarite. Hm! a schoolroom. Miss Marian Cooke is conducting a highly attentive shorthand class. Now the new Morrison post olfice in which Edna Harris, postmistress, sits watching anxiously for the three-thirty train. To the Senate in Richmond. Do you recognize that handsome gentleman arguing so vehemently? It is Senator Henry Hollcman, declaring that four years ot history should be made compulsory in Virginia schools. Oh! a small shop on Broad Street. The sign over the door reads " Vera’s.” Inside we see Vera Wells displaying the latest Paris creations for dolls. Another scene, the Gobi Desert this time. In front of a small tent, sur- rounded by native guides and porters, sits Janet Brooks, the most daring woman explorer of the age. Lo! A group of reformers destroying the furnishings of a fashionable m ght club. At their head, hatchet in hand, marches the second Carrie Nation, Sarah Barclay. The private office of the President of the United States. The President stands tall and serene. He is Roy Holliday, whose oratory and common sense have marked him as a new Lincoln. He is conferring earnestly with his cabinet, in which Anna Brooks is postmistress-general. Now a desk littlered with mail. Behind it sits Bethany Wood, founder and Grand Mistress of that nationwide organization, the Spinsters’ Club. She is read- ing a letter from Nellie Smith, manager of Reno’s largest hotel for unmarried women. Now wc see Shenk-Layman Institute for backward children. Its founders, Margaret Shenk and Mary Layman, have filled a long felt need in the field of education. Dot Kesler is one of the school’s best instructors. We go now to Washington, D. C., where Betty Thompson is having her ups and downs as elevator girl in the Washington monument. In America’s capital we find Miss Genevieve Houser, Washington society leader, giving a ball in honor of Mademoiselle Hatty Brown, whose forceful speeches and perfect French have brought her the honor of being first American woman elected to the French Chamber of Deputies. Among the guests are Evelyn Keane, the great woman sculptor; Ruth McKinney, noted woman evangelist; Charlotte Langslow, the well-known hairdresser, and Dorothy Holloway, famous modern poet. We see next a dainty cottage. In the front yard is Doris Wiseman, who has married a " good man” and settled down for life. Great cheering. A packed stadium. It is the last quarter of the Army- Navy football game. The score is nothing to nothing and it’s Navy’s first down on Army’s twenty-yardline. Who is that worried looking Army coach? As he faces us, his black wavy hair identifies him as Stanley Evans. Now we see a busy telephone exchange where Mary Alice Hussey is just plugging in a call between Frances Owens, the year’s star Ford saleswoman, and Lena Paris, private secretary to Necia Ditfenderfer, of the brokerage firm, Diffen- derfer, Ellison and Dadds. Florence Barnard has evidently taken up her chosen career; we find her acting as nurse to Marguerite Holloway, who has suffered a nervous breakdown due to her exertions in touring the country in a series of religious lectures. The demonstration now ends with a view of the Redman Sisters’ Conserva- tory of Music, where we hear a duct sung by Audrey Cox and Nadine McQuillan. ROBERT WADE SEWARD, Jr., ’36.

JANET BROOKS, ’36. CLASS CREED As the time draws near for us to go out and meet Life, we, as seniors, feel that we are able to do this because of what our beliefs have done for us. We will carry them with us in the future and may they continue to guide us. First, and most important of all, we believe in God, our ever present help. Furthermore, we believe in our class, and our motto, " We learn not for school but for Life.” We are convinced that each of us will conscientiously assume his life’s work and responsibilities. Our faculty has helped and guided us through so many dark paths that they will long live in our memory as noble souls. We be- lieve in Mr. Mort, our principal, who has believed in us and con- stantly urged us onward. We believe in our school, its various clubs and organizations. But especially do we believe in our coaches, Mr. Crigler and Mrs. Messick. They have taught us how to play the game fairly — a les- son that should never be forgotten. They have shown us that it is not the winning nor losing of the game that counts most, but how it is played. And last, we believe in our country, the United States of America, to us the greatest country on earth. To it we pledge our auegiance. Because of our beliefs we are nearer our goal. " Peggy” Salisbury, ’36. " OUR GOAL” As Freshmen small we first set sail Upon the Sea of Knowledge. " Old Morrison,” our good ship’s name ; Our journey’s end was " College.” As Sophomores the sea was rough, And waves of toil swept o’er us; But Captain Mort was at the helm, And all the crew worked for us. A? Juniors we felt unafraid. The port was drawing nearer. We learned to man the ropes a bit; Our course became much clearer. As Seniors ive have come to find The journey’s just beginning. The Sea of Knowledge stretches far — But Life’s Goal is worth winning. Sarah Barclay, ’3 6 . CLASS STATISTICS TYPICAL SENIOR BOY ...
