Text from Pages 1 - 152 of the 1969 volume:
THERE IS A TIME
These are the young years, the fruitful years
when time means only the day after tomorrow.
These are the years of wistful-eyed beings with
tender dreams, but youth is brutal as well as tender,
and youth is reality as well as a dream.
A flower blooms and fades and blows away -- and
blooms again, according to the seasong and in like
manner youth exists from spring to spring, for to
everything there is a time.
"If I were sitting here and the whole outside world
were indifferent to what I was doing, I would still
want to be doing just what I am."
Stevens College Bulletin
We the 1969 Torch Staff dedicate this annual to a
man of great moral character - our teacher and
friend: Coach Gerald Tuck.
THOUGHTS. . .
"I would like to express my thanks and apprecia-
tion to the students, faculty, and Torch Staff for
making this a happy and rewarding year. I am
grateful for the opportunity to return to Mortimer
Jordan as principal.
I know that Mortimer Jordan is a good school
and with the help of the students, faculty, and
parents we can continue to improve and have one
of the finest schools anywhere. Thanks again for
the opportunity to be at home."

SENIORS REPRESENT MJ. AT
GIRL'S STATE AND BOY'S STATE
. .2 -H'
Our school was represented at Boy's State by
Frank Randle. The Boy's State Conference, held at
Troy State University in June, provided experien-
ces in local and state government. Frank, who was
chosen to be a Representative, attended a legisla-
tive session at our State Capitol. He was also a
member of the "City" that was chosen to receive
Linda Jenkins was chosen by the members of the
faculty to represent our school at Girl's State. In
June of last year, she spent a week at Huntington
College in Montgomery where girls from through-
out the State of Alabama met to participate in gov-
ernmental experiences. She was selected in a mock
election to be an Representative and as a Repre-
sentative she learned to introduce bills. Linda re-
turned to Jordan a more informed and concerned
IN TERNA TIONAL
Janice Stubbs was selected as one of 160 Nation-
al Association of Student Councel members to
travel and study in Europe for six Weeks this past
summer. As a tenth grader she submitted an appli-
cation for the trip which included a plan by which
she would carry out a program of international un-
derstanding after she returned from her trip. She
was chosen to be a member of the tour group on
the basis of this plan.
The Tour for International Understanding start-
ed in Washington D.C. Where they embarked for
London. From London they toured England,
France, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, Yugoslavia,
Austria, Germany, and Holland.
REPR ESEN TA TI VE
This year Catherine Abel was chosen to be the
Good Citizenship Girl of the Daughters of the
American Revolution. Each year this honor is be-
stowed upon a senior girl by the faculty. The Win-
ner must be outstanding in character, leadership,
scholarship, and service. Catherine, sponsored by
the John Parks Custis chapter of the D.A.R., will
represent our school in State competition for
GOOD CI TI ZENSHIP
In March of 1968 the members of the faculty se-
lected our Good Citizenship Representative, Derek
Belcher. As a result of his having received this
honor, Derek took a Week-long, historical tour. He
visited the colonial settlements of Jamestown and
Williamsburg where he saw the House of Burgesses,
the Governor's Palace, and other sites of interest.
He also visited Washington D.C. where he toured
our Nation's Capital, the White House, and the
Washington Monument. While he was in Washing-
ton, Derek talked with all of the Congressmen
from Alabama. Derek feels that the tour, spon-
sored by the BIRMINGHAM NEWS and other
groups in Jefferson County, gave him a deeper in-
sight into our government.
UPTIMIST CL UB
Clifford Bradford was honored this year by the
Optomist Club at its annual banquet. Competing
with representatives from every school in Jefferson
County, Clifford was presented a first alternate
standing for a four year scholarship to Samford

scholarship, Clifford will assume the ownership.

before school started and have put in many hours
of hard Work. They came at seven o'clock and
stayed after school every day during the marching

Dayl' as the special guests of the Bulldog Marching
Band,'and marched the Little Seven Dental Clinic

making District-and State Competition. Neither

As the 1968-1969 school year draws to a close, there are many
things that each student holds as a dear memory of Mortimer Jor-
dan High School. Things have not always been as you wanted
them to be, but all things have many times worked together for
Now as you go your separate ways, not knowing if happiness or
sorrow will cross your path, hold the thoughts of your days spent
in Jordan High as the happiest of your life. Turn to this rambling
structure which houses the best of students and adults and simply
say, "Thanks for the memory."
The Editors of the Torch
WHITE AND BILLY GAMBLE
"Forgive what seemed my sin in meg
What seemed my worth since I begang
For merit lives from man to man,
And not from man, O Lord, to Thee."
