We are devoted to one God, our Creator and Preserver, who is our Guiding Light to success. We have the greatest of faith in the United States, our country, and the preserver of Liberty. We shall always be grateful to our principal and to our teachers whose untiring efforts have led us to this threshold. For all time, we shall place our confidence and trust in our Alma Mater, Morrison High School. We beleive in any and all representatives of Morrison High. We shall never lose faith in that glimmering ray of Hope which, with these princi- ples and ideals firmly imbedded in us, shall take us through the portals of Morrison High School into an unfolding world of opportunities. Ronald Marshall, ’40 CRASS history ★ September 1936, we boarded the old school bus. We were high school students. We are transported to the old high school building, where we stop only long enough to elect officers. We chose Richard Leach as president. We are the first class to enjoy the new building for four years and the first to work in the Industrial Arts Shop. In this, our Freshman year, we watch the growth of our school with the addition to our faeutly of two new instructors, Miss Pitts and Mr. Sander. We make our mark as Freshmen in athletics with Richard Leach and Richard Thompson on the Football Team; Aubrey Hawthorne as manager of the Basketball Team; Helen Newell, Maude Hawley, and Thelma Becker on the Girl’s Basketball Team; Richard Leach on the Baseball Team ; and Bill Haywood on the Golf Team. We were also the first to even imagine we had a chance in the State Latin Tour- nament held annually in Williamsburg, our representative being Ronald Marshall. September ’37, we have lest some of our passengers, but stop at new places and again our school bus is filled. We now have the privilege of being condescending to the Freshmen. We are Sophomores. We elect new officers, changing all with the exception of president, whom we are forced to change before mid-semester because of his leaving the bus for another school. We elected John Newell to fill the vacancy. It was during this year that we became the proud possessor of a new bus. We again attempt to win honors for Morrison in the Latin Tournament. Those who went were Ronald Marshall, Delle Pursell, and Dolly Seward. One of these received honorable mention. This year showed the beginning of what has come to be our school paper, The Sponge. An essay on the United States Flag, wirtten by a member of cur class, Mary Evelyn Snyder, was chosen the best in the state of Virginia in a national D. A. R. Contest. For this she was awarded a medal. September ’38 most of us ride a different bus, (we’re Juniors). We can’t be bothered with Freshmen. In fact, we almost have forget that we were once in their place. We have no new buses but new teachers, as we lose Mss Martin and Mrs. McPliail. These ‘ u e leplaeed by Miss Rush and Miss Blankenbaker. Another addition to our faculty, Miss Shular, missed the bus and came in late. And joy of joys, we have a real orchestra. ’ Once more we see three new faces among our class officers, the familiar face being Nancy Rowe, our President for this year. We would like to mention our share in the debate with N. N. H. S. in which Morrison won, our class being represented by John Dozier. The cause for headaches for us all was ‘ ‘ How could we give the Seniors the custom- ary banquet and dance?” We said we couldn’t, we knew we couldn’t, but we did! After this it was clear sailing until exams. Again we had a representative at the Latin Tournament. This year our last, shows a great improvement in our school. We elected John Dozier as President. He has proved himself an able leader. Two new teachers: Miss Harwood, who must also have missed the bus, and Mr. Walker, and two new buses. It was this year that we lost a very dear friend of our high school days. For the past few years of its life it was known by its nickname, ‘ ‘ Eddie Parker ’s Bus.” We also lost Miss Rush at Christmas. Another bus stop, this time for our bandmaster, Mr. Briggs. We now have a band as well as an orchestra. We stop once more, to let a passenger off. But he’s back in a few days, it was only John Dozier, going as a representative of The Sponge, to the Southern Interscholastic Press Association Convention held in Lexington. Morrison High School won the achievement award for both the annual and the school paper. And now we have reach the ‘ ‘ deadend ’ ’ of high school life. We leave the old high school bus and enter on another journey, with sincere good wishes to those who follow and fond farewell to our faculty. Dolly Seward, ’40 ★ STRIVING- ONWARD ★ We, the class of 1940. Stand tonight, united here, ’Mongst our friends and all our loved ones, Teachers, too, we hold so dear. Due to their untiring patience, Due to their instructions clear, We, the class of 1940 Reached our goal without a fear. Were it not for teachers, loved ones, How could we alone, pursue All our many vexing problems, They have always helped us do ? So, as we here stand, united, Faith and hope within us true, Let us praise and thank our helpers, They have won a victory, too. Victory, the reward of patience, This our motto, we have won, Now, to higher inspirations, We will follow, on and on. So, in behalf of all my classmates, And with them, I wish to say, In the future, may our aims be, Noble deeds, from day to day. Mary Evelyn Snyder, ’40 CfcASS PIROPHEeT ★ Time: June 10, 1950. Place: R. C. A. Building, New York City. Event: The first demonstration of a new telivision receiver which may be toned to any spot on earth. Demonstration on coast-to-coast radio network. Ladies and Gentlemen, while the receiver is being given a last going over, may I have the pleasure to introduce to you some of the celebrities present here tonight? First, meet Mr. Lawrence Robertson, President of the Druggists Union. Mr. Robert- son worked his way up from deliver y boy for Hilton Pharmacy. Now meet Mr. Howard Harrison, a man who began at the bottom, that is as a paper boy, and is now President of the Associated Press. Next meet Mr. Ronald Marshall, famous concert violinist. Now folks here ' s the country’s favorite comedy foursome, whose second movie is now in the making: John Shenk, Morris Yoder, Harlan Yost and John Miller. Now let’s see if I can recognize anybody in the audience. Yes, there’s Aubrey Curtis, the coming heavyweight star, sitting in the third row with T. H. Paris his sparring partner, and his manager, Phil Langslow. Over there to the left in a few rows back is a group of former Morrison High girls with their husbands. Let’s see, there’s the former Elsie Smith. I hear she married a barber, and is doing very nicely. Then there’s the former Ruby Scliwery, and the former Mary Snyder with their banker husbands. Say, there’s a group of ladies that look familiar. They are Lois Shenk, Dora Hertz- ler and Thelma Peters. It seems that they are all top notch stenographers. Well folks, that’s all I have time for now; the ultra-telivision receiver is ready. Now remember this instrument may be tuned to pick up action at any spot on earth. Now if someone in the audience will select a place The Empire State Building! That’s net so far away, but here goees . Well it looks like this is a private office. There are two big feet propped up on a glass top desk. H’nnn, lie’s reading last month’s copy of Jumbo Comics. I wish he would take that book down so we can see his face. There, he laid it down. Well, will you look? He race Edwards in person ! Let ’s switch to the outer office. Look who ’s here, Lawrence Walters, his office boy and say isn’t that Delle Purcell who’s making all the noise on the typewriter? I here she’s married and has to do all the work in her family. Her husband, Willis Bud- lcng, is still grease monkey in an Amoco station. Well, where shall I tune in next? Morrison, Virginia has been selected, thank you Mr. Harrison. I was hoping someone would suggest it. I’ll tune in the high school. Let’s look in a few rooms. Room 8, why that’s Dolly Seward teaching Latin in there. Lab. A, there’s William Hulton teaching Fhysics. Room 10, Aubrey Hawthorne, teacher. What’s that lie’s yelling about? Oh, yes he’ teaching Solid Geometry. Well, well, if it isn’t Lin- wood Beasley sweeping up the halls. I hear Lorraine Jansen is holding up a contract at the skating rink, waiting Linwood ’s question. Well that was Morrison. Did someone suggest WnsMno-ton. D. C.? We ’ll tune in on the House of Reoresentatives. There’s Mr. Beniamin Fenton, Speaker of t e House. Who ’s that group of men he is talking to. I think T see some Morrison graduates in the crowd. There are Mr. Hudson Hornsby, Mr. R. L. Kreprs and Mr. Harris He Hand. I believe this is the third term for all of these Representatives. Now Mr. Robinson, will you turn the dial and see where it is tuned? It seems to be tuned to a Department store in Richmond. I see Martha Wood and Venita Budlong behind a counter. I’ll tune it to the Manager ’s office. Looks as if Bill Preston is running this store. And say, aren ’t those secretaries Kathleen Keane and Dorothy Overman? Now to tune to the delivery exit and find Jimmy Hunter, Burt Atkinson and Charles Damon driving the trucks, and making good money too. Mr. Robinson will you turn the dial again? This looks like a hospital. It must be. There go the Misses Elsie Utely, Myrtle Woodall, and Elizabeth McDowell in their nurses uniforms. Next to look in the dcctor’s office to find John Dozier, M.
