Her merry laugh and jolly “Hello” will long be remembered by her classmates. ERMA BELLE AYSCUE “Squirmie” “A dancing shape, an image gay, to haunt, to startle and waylay.” Erma’s sweet personality and loy- al friendship have won the whole hearted approval of the class of ’39. BARBARA LEE CHALKY “Chocolate” “She is little; she is shy, but there is mischief in her eye.” Barbara is dependable, interested in school activities, and always eag- er to be helpful, doing what she can cheerfully. Her special interest is in Charlottesville. MERDITH OTIS CLARKE “Merdy” “Of soul sincere, in action faith- ful, in honor clear.” “Merdy” is full of fun. He gets along with his lessons and, also, splendidly with his fellow class- mates. WILLIAM NARIN NETTLES “Bill” “With charity for all, with firm- ness in the right.” “Bill ' is conspicious in the Sen- ior Class for his genial grin, his prowess on the football field, and his wholesome attitude toward all school activities. He makes good grades, too. PERCY LYNDON OWENS, JR. “Sonny” “A brilliant mind is a constant source of pleasure.” Watch that twinkle in Lyndon’s eye. His sense of humor and mis- chievous outlook made him a pleas- ant companion. LUCINDA BEATRICE PARISH “Cinda” “Tranquility, thou better name, than all the family of fame.’’ Lucinda goes her serene, unruff- led way oblivious to the trials and tribulations of math, problems and history charts. VIRGINIA ELIZABETH PARKER “Virgie” “Fair, sweet girl with skillful hand.” “Virgie” always looks as if she had just stepped out of the pro- verbial band box with every hair in place. She is an industrious student, and cheerful company. MARY CHANNING COLEMAN “Chubby” “A voice low and sweet is an cx_ cellcnt thing in woman.” Channing, our distinguished editor of the “Sponge,” writes snappy prose and presides with decision at staff meetings. On the side, we hear she is a devotee of the “gentle art of rocking.” WILLIAM ARTHUR CRANE “Billie“ “He was natural, simple, affect- ing.” Firm in his opinion, but never heated in argument — that’s Billie. Five units of Math, and four years of football are the high spots of his school career. HOWARD MILTON CURTIS “Everyone who knew him liked him; have I not said enough?” Howard is one of Morrison’s most lovable characters, always willing to help a person in need. He is a grand sport ; hence, Morrison will lose a valuab ' e football star with Howard. AMOS BOYD DADDS, JR. “Boyd” “Much study is wearisome to the flesh.” Boyd is a likeable " pest”, full of fun. In spite of all of his “horse play”, he is well liked the school over. ELLA LUCILLE DUDLEY “It’s a friendly heart that has plenty of friends.” Ella is endowed with a sunny dis_ position, and the kind of a smile that is always ready to burst forth. To those who know her well, she is a loyal friend. GILBERT DUDLEY “Scoby” Tis only noble to be good. “Scoby” is a good student, espec- ially in Math ; but when it comes to work he thoroughly believes in con- servation of energy. He is quet and reserved. HAGOOD ELMER ELKINS “Guts” “Life has no blessing like a pru- dent friend.” H. good stands well in his classes and is liked by everyone, although he is a great tease. He is never in a rush, but he always seems to get there. ELSIE LANGLEY ELLIS “Puddin” “I’ll sing thee a song.” The class of ‘39 has been enrich- ed by Elsie’s originality, musical talent, and pep. She is a valuable member of the Sponge staff. CARLTON MITCHELL EPPES “Bonehead” ‘‘A light heart lives long.” Carlton’s winning smile and his friendly ways have made him pop- ular with all of our students. CHARLES RUSSELL FARINHOLT “Monk” “Much wisdom often goes with fewest words.” Cutest, most studious, and most likely to succeed — all these qualities spell “Monk”. We are sure to see “Monk’s” name above the rest of the crowd. CATHERINE BOWMAN FOWLER “Kitty” “With lots of pep, sincere in mind, the truest friend you’ll ever find.” “Kitty” as class president, has led us through Junior and Senior years wholeheartedly and successfully. Her rank of “Typical Senior Girl” sig- nified the place she holds in our hearts. WILLIAM PRESTON FREEMAN “Peter” “Silence absorbs knowledge.” Here’s a baseball player. Peter is seemingly indifferent, but not so. He is unassuming and self reliant. BARBARA MARSHALL FULLER “Bobbie” “For nature made her what she is, and never made another.” Our blond Barbara carries be- neath her curls a head full of orig- inality, wit, and executive ability. As her future profession, “Bobby” has chosen dress designing. MILLARD HAWTHORNE GRANGER “Thorne” “All things I thought I knew ; but now confess the more I know ; I know the less.” Hawthorne is well-known among his many friends as a good sport and comrade. His ability to sing and his handsomeness win the hearts of many girls at Morrison High. JOHN LEWIS HAMILTON “Jack” “Sober, steadfast.” The boy who put M. H. S. on the golf map, that’s “Jack”. A good fellow classmate and a friend to all. EDITH MAE HARLOW “E” “Mcdest and shy as a daisy.” “E” stands up for kindness and faithfulness. Though she is small in statue, she is large in our hearts. MILDRED MAY HARRIS “Mickey “Gentle in manner, firm in real- ity.’ Quiet, gentle, lovable, all these can be said of “Mickey”. May the best of good things be hers. JOHN PROSSER HARRISON, JR. “His airs, his manners, all who saw admired.’ John is a fun lover, a big tease, a fine sport, and industrious work- er. He is well liked by the whole school CAXTON OLIVER HAUGHTON “Cax” “Happy am I; from care I’m free, why aren’t they all contented like me ? “Cax’s” contagious smile, red hair and jolly disposition have endeared him to all at Morrison. LAURA FRANCES STAPLES “Lalla” “Fearless in youth, she tempts the heights of knowledge.” Better late than never is our ver- dict, Laura. We’re awfully glad you joined us — even though you were three years late. We like your ready smile and willingness to help. MILDRED IDA HENLY “Hen” “To know her is to love her.” The class of ’39 was enriched by " Hen ' s” wit and humor. With such a friendly disposition “Hen” will succeed. VIOLA LOUISE HONEYCUTT “Honey” “An enlightning smile makes things worthwhile.” " Honey” spreads sunshine where- ever she goes. A truer friend can- not be found. Once you know her yop will always love her. EARLE KNOWEN HUCKINS “Huck” “Afoot and light-hearted I take to the cp n road.” Cheerful, witty, easy-going, our " Huck” would rather be sailing a a boat or playing a harp than dig. ging his way through the intrica- cies of the federal government in history class. PIIYLISS HUCKENS “Phil” “Modest and simple, and sw-eet, the very type of Priscella.” " Phil” is a lovable, true and staunch friend. She loves fun and does her part in everything. SARAH JEANNE HUNTER “Sal” " Her household motions light and free.” Due to the strength of her char- acter and the force of her amiable personality, Sarah is well liked. Since her work in Home Econo- mics has been exceptionally good, she promises to make an efficient home-maker. ANN DILLARD JONES “Jonesy” “Music, when soft voices die vi- brates in the memory ” Reserve, a sense of humor, charm, scholastic ability, a gift of song, these contribute to Anne ' s success. LILLIAN THOMAS JONES “Tommy” “A smile always wreaths her lips.” Lillian ' s chief talent is poetical. She’s pretty and merry and pleas- ant. to know. MARY MARGARET JONES “There is a lady sweet and fine.” Here’s to a girl with perpetual good humor. She is rather quiet and reserved, but once you get be- low the surface, you find a lovable personality, and a heart of gold. RUFUS FREDERICK JOYNER “Freddie” “My tongue within my lips I rein: for who talks much must talk in vain.” “Freddie” is one of our most lov- able students, believes school is his sleeping time. We will miss “Fred- die” next year for his keen wit and his ever willing helpfulness. NANCY DOUGLAS McCLAY “Nan” “Nothing can resist my Nincy.” Sophistication — that ' s Nancy, with every move. When it comes to a showdown, you’ll find her accom- plished both socially and intellect- ual y.. JAMES WILLIAM MARSH “J. W.” “Men who undertake considerable things even in a regular way, ought to give us ground to presume abili- ty.” James is equally ? dept at sailing a boat and making a speech. His hobbies show he’s a gentleman of cosmopolitan taste. MARY AMORY MARTIN ‘Happy” “Sweetness of disposition charms the soul.” When Mary receives her sheep- skin, then she will leave a vacancy at Morrison that will be hard to fill. Mary has served her class well as vice-president. She is depend- able, true and ever willing to help others. JOSEPH COLBEY Me ALEXANDER “Joe” “Approved valor is made precious by natural courtesy.” “Joe” has artistic ability, athletic ability ,and last but not least, schol- astic ability. He is a kind and friendly boy, quiet, but always ready to join in a good laugh. JULIA DABNEY McALEXANDER “ 14 ” “Thy music sets my world at ease.” A friend, a booster, a cheer lead- er for Morrison, a cafeteria assist- ant, and a genuine good sport : these represent Julia. VIRGINIA JAUNITA MITCHELL “Joe” “Happy-go-lucky, fair and free if you‘d be happy, be like she.” Although this is “Joe ' s” first year at Morrison High she has made many warm friends with her sunny smile and charming personality. LESTER BLAKE MITCHELL “Butch” “Oh give us a man who sings at h.s work.” " Butch’s” the class Cassanova. His pleasant personality has made him popular, and his intellectual ability has made him outstanding in his classes. CLAUDE ADRIAN PRESSON “Pat” " Quiet and watchful he kept his eye.” “Pat” has a quiet and amiable manner, and conscientious habits of study. He made a good schol- astic record at Morrison. NANCY STUART ROANE “Stu” Is she pretty? Look in those eyes. There the light of genius lies. Someday in the halls of fame, As a decorator you ' ll find her name. HELEN GAYNELL ROUNDY “Hel " “Happy go lucky, where’er she goes, many her friends, few her foes.” Helen is willing to meet anyone half way, a smile for smile. She considers a wold without friendship is but a wilderness. WILLIAM HENRY ROWE “Our Bill” “When he starts to think, trouble is brewing.” Bill represents the biggest tease of the Senior class, but in spite of that, he is well liked by all We knew all along that he was good fun but we never suspected, until our Senior year, his ability as a public speaker. •C: o MARGARET ELIZABETH ROWELL “Mutt” “The reason firm, the temperate will.” Margaret has a quiet dignity of her own, but she unbends to join in merriment, or to cooperate with her many friends in any good und- ertaking. ELMER HARRY RUSSELL “El” “The heart to conceive, the under- standing to direct, or the hand to execute.” A quiet and studious boy is Elmer. He takes an active part in class discussions and he has proved a valuable member on History IV ra- dio programs. LILLIAN BEATRICE RUSSELL “Sis” ‘ A friend is a rare book, of which one copy is made.” Lillian’s quietness and sweetness add much to her charm. Once ac- quired, her friendship is everlasting. IDA MAE SCHOLZ “West” " An ideal girl in every way, the kind of a friend that is not found every day.” Mae — “the friendliest Senior " — is loved by us all ; Mae — " the best all around girl” — possesses a per- sonality we can’t resist ; Mae — " the high school booster” — gives us a good reputation wherever she goes. BENNIE RAYMOND SEALEY “Ray” “He who thinks for himself.” “Ray’s” love for fun and good sportsmanship make him one of the most admired boys in school. His originality will help him climb to success. NETTIE GWENDOLYN SLAIGHT “Gwen” “A merry heart doeth good like medicine.” “Gwen’s” sense of humor and love for fun accounts for her popularity at Morrison High. Her laughter will bring her through many ordeals in life. JAMES OLIVER SMITH LEY “Jimmie” “I ' ve come,” said I, “to see life at it’s best. I had a vision — music art, and the rest.” A forceful personality is Jimmie, the live wire of any gathering. When one needs a poem, a song, a witty story, he calls on Jimmie. VIRGINIA MAE STEVENS “Spooks” “Her words are balm, her love sincere, her thoughts immac-ulate. ” “Spooks” is a good all-round stud- ent, but she stars especilly in his- tory where her dramatic readings on radio programs are always in demand. She was elected the most studious girl in her class. MATHEW JOHN THOMPSON “Jack” “He went about his work as one who knows.” “Jack” is one whom few really know. He will help you with all his heart, at the slightest hint. He does not have to tell you how sin- cere he is about this to be the truth. HENRY MAGRUDER THOMPSON “Bravo” “I would rather be right than president.” “Bravo” is a likable boy of strong opinions, a debater, beyond doubt. He is ambitious for a career in the commercial World. VIOLET MAE TRAINUM “Violet” “ Silence is golden.” “Violet” is a newcomer in our Senior Class ; however, she has won many friends. Although Violet is retiring in manner, we feel she is always willing to cooperate.

She possesses all the qual- ities desired of a true comrade. PHILIP MONROE WILBERN “Pete” “Little I ask; my wants are few.” “Pete” has put in four years of good, steady work for his diploma. The same energy should carry him far toward success in life. DOROTHY ANNE WILKINS " Wilkie” " Candor is the seat of a noble mind.” Anne ' s conscientiousness, straight forwardness, dependability, and will- ingness to work have made her an outstanding Senior of ' 39. JOHN MACK DRUMM “Johnny” “He was in love with his work.” John’s modest, earnest, capable manner is very attractive. He’s a prood politician — witness, his elec- tion as vice-president by the Liberal party. Ciai.lL cCfiitoXij ★ In 1935 this Senior class of ’39 entered Morrison High School, as Fresh- men, “to learn not for school but for life.” While we have been preparing our- selves for the coming years, we have taken time to pause and record, in this History of our class, incidents which each will long cherish and remember. That unforgetable day of enrollment! What high ambitions fired our young hearts! What bewildering problems puzzeled our groping minds! What laugh- ter provoking questions slipped off our unsophisticated tongues! With great enthusiasm we met and elected Howard Curtis as our president. For the most part we submitted with good grace to initiation at the hands of our betters — the self-satisfied Sophomores ; but Nancy Roane could never become reconciled to the epithet. Rats ; a veritable Patrick Henry, she boldly proclaimed our right to the simple dignity of the title — Freshman. Even to this day, Boyd Dadds asserts that he rode no billy-goats, nor was he painted or paddled. Oh, shades of the Sophomores of ' 35, what a good chance you missed ! Then to the deiight of the Freshman and to the discomfiture of the Soph- omores, Mr. Mort issued his ultimatum, “No more initiations.” Although we were very timid while Freshmen, one among us mustered the supreme nerve to skip class. This was none other than the bold Mr. Hagood Elkins. The next year we chose Ann Colgan as president of the class, but she early deserted her post for the greater attractions of matrimony. Howard Curtis, vice-president succeeded to her high office. While we were sophomores we had a great adventure. If you had hap- pened along one day you would have thought that refugees from Czechoslavakia were fleeing with their household goods, but it was merely the high school mak- ing its exodus from its old home and its exciting entrance into the fine, modern new buildings across the street. As we trudged along, many had to stop tand take a deep breath, since our paraphernalia of pencils, papers, books, and even our own desks, were none to light. The morning in our new surroundings seemed to step away too fast. The bell rang for lunch and we scampered off to find that the cafeteria was located, much to our sorrow, as far from us as it could possiby been placed. This year was a great one as we had so many new things to learn. Mr. Mort we surprisingly found out one day, had been listening in on our classes. This was a shock as well as a mystery. Each time Mr. Mort began to make an announcement over the new public address system, it sounded as if he were stamping his feet and what not ; the startled Sophomores, satisfied that they were not being bombarded from Mars, learned to cover their ears and wait for the noise to subside and the announcement to- begin. In our Junior year, Catherine Fowler was chosen president. Entertaining the Seniors of ' 38 with a banquet and dance was our main objective. We worked hard to raise money, selling ribbons, pennants, candy, and food ; but in April a vision of financial inadequacy loomed before our eyes. Then someone said. “Coat hangers !” We picked up these two words, we emphasized them, and then translated them into action " Coat hangers” at the right of us, " Coat hangers” at the left of us, and “Coat hangers” all around us. No one minded, however, and in a few weeks “Coat hangers”, at a half a cent a piece had hung up our troubles. The banquet and dance came off “tops”. The speakers, Catherine Fowler, Less Mitchell, William Rowe, Mary Martin, Russell Farinholt and Howard Curtis offered their toasts with enthusiasm. The harmony of their knees shaking rendered a tune that was most appealing and entertaining. STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! SENIORS! YES. SENIORS! During our last year of high school our class meetings, which were num- erous, took on a dignity of their own. Catherine Fowler, our president, con- ducted the meetings in a manner equal to Vice-president Gamer’s, and we car- ried out parliamentry rules so well that we were able to accomplish much. Publishing our paper the " Sponge” was one of our big projects of the year. It was not a rare experience to see the desk of Miss Rush, our sponsor, littered with papers, while the members of the staff rushed madly up stairs and down with copy and proof, and the printing press in the industrial arts room hummed with activity. The " Sponge” has justified all our efforts. Our next venture into the field of publication was this, our annual. Early in the fall there was a hectic scramble for advertisements. The long suffering merchants in this community bowed to the inevitable, when determined Seniors approached them for ads, and meekly signed on the dotted line. When the financial standing of our annual was secure, we began the in- teresting period of picture taking. Senior girls appeared with hair primly curled and boys who were ordinarily satisfied with a comfortable sweater, were slicked up like arrow shirt ads. Other activities in which the Seniors have exercised their talents have been preparing in our commencement, cramming for exams, and pesenting the Senior plays. Upon all these undertakings we can look back with a smile of satisfaction and say, " We’ve done our best. " As we think back over these glorious years we remember pleasantly Mrs. Gcddy and Miss Pitts, our home-room teachers, and Mr. Mort, our principal, who faithfully worked with us. Thoughts of friends whom we hate to leave linger in our hearts. Last but not least, Morrison High School will ever stand as a shrine of our devotion. Mary Martin ’39 (. l 7 aii C.XZS.A ★ We, the Class of ’39 have formed several beliefs which we deem necessary to our playing successfully the game of life. Our many y ears of schooling have done us great good. These years have given us training and practice for the game. We hope to show these benefits as the years go on. Our experiences have confirmed our confidence in the value of the public schools. We believe in righteousness. By this we mean that we believe in accep- ting and supporting the right. We believe in following the rules of the game. We believe in clean sportsmanship. We would rather lose the game than win by unfair methods. We believe in team work. In order for us to win we must have complete cooperation. The saying “One for all ; all for one,” applies to us. We believe in equality of opportunity ; we want to give everyone a chance to be on our team. This is the most important of all democratic principles. We believe in freedom of thought and expression. We w£.nt each player to be able to give his opinions. Guided by this, our creed, and strengthened by confidence in our abilities, we go forth to do our part for the promotion of a better and happier human society. Russell Farinholt Class of ’39 ★ On OL ' DH-uJLoM ★ We are standing tonight at a parting of ways ; We have come to the end of our High School days ! The occasion is alike both sad and glad, Thinking of future joys, and the joys we have had ; Sad to think that the time is so near For leaving our teachers and school friends dear; Glad for the work we have patiently wrought, For the growth we have made in skill and thought ; Sad for the closing of childhood’s last door, Glad for the wide-open portals before. Now on life’s threshold we pause for an hour. Eager, alert, and surging with power. We long to be trying our newly fledged wings, To go out and conquer a world of new things ; To put to the test of a work-a_day round Tenets of fairness and faith we have found. Earnest, prepared, devoted to truth. We hope to expend the strong years of our youth. In sportsmanly service to God, Country, and man, And, for one’s self, do the best we can ! ★ Virginia Stevens 39 ★ Time: Thanksgiving Day, in the year 1949. Place: The new million dollar Crigler Stadium, Morrison High School, Morrison, Va. Event: An interscholastic football game: Duke University and Morrison High School. Yes, siree, gang, it’s really a fact. Duke plays Morrison. Every hotel, tourists home, tourist camp on the Peninsula was crowded two day ago. The game is scheduled for two o’clock ; it is now one o’clock and the stadium is filled to capacity. Something different about this game ; it’s the first class reunion of the class of ’39 : and, since your reporter is particularly interested, what do you say we go over to the reserved section on the fifty yard line for this class? Well, well, here’s Peggy Atkinson ; they say she’s found a nice big Marine and settled down for the rest of her life Good girl Peggy. Hello, Jack. This is Jack Hamilton, the grand (old?) man of golf.

Lillian Jones and Mildred Henly have gone in for singing in a big way. They are now with the Richmond Operatic Society. I thought that Glee Club would help. We learn that Nancy Roane is doing nicely with her interior decorations. It seems she has been to Hollywood. Don ' t go airish on us, Nancy. D. Howard Curtis IM. S.) the chemical wizard! No telling what he’s going to discover next. He’s added seven elements to the original ninety-six. Barbara Fuller says she is with Sacs in New York designing dresses and stuff.

Oh, I forgot to mention that Juanita Mitchell stole the show from Haw- thorne Gable’s new picture (Buck Benyay Stops Riding). She could teach the horse new tricks. Among those building ships for the U. S. are Gilbert Dudley, Bill Crane, and Meredith Clarke. Here come Carlton Eppes and Caxton Haughton over the wall ; they can’t get over the habit even though the game is free. Phyllis Huckins goes around giving advice to poor, tired, ignorant chem- ists, and Sarah Hunter goes in for leading a life of ease and leisure while the rest of us slave. Catherine Fowler, that famous African exploress, has just returned from the dark continent and she’s wearing rings in her nose. Let’s hope she pulls through. Russell Farinholt is Duke’s star back. I guess it’s kinda hard playing against your old alma mama. James Marsh the famous globe trotter, spends his time trotting between Charlottesville and Newport News. And so folks, here at Morrison, Boyd Dadds and I are still trying to get that 1-4 credit ; 15-3-4 credits in fourteen years. Well anyway, I remain sincere ' y yours, Les Mitchell Class of ' 39 CLu XM ★ We, the class of 1939, being of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make this, our last will and testament, hereby revoking all other wills hereto- fore made by us.
