Through the following events you will see and read, we hope to show you the greater factors which molded our personalities and increased our knowledge. We, the class of '50, claim only the successes we have earned and hope, in passing, that those who follow us will be inspired to even higher achievements. We face the future with wisdom and hopeg therefore we visualize social accomplishments left undone by those in the past. Z lbecbca fion l l To Supt. W. Z.

Un'Ve'5"'7 0 Kentucky: Principal Seniors, you are soon to go forth to play your role in the drama of life. In all desirable activities you will do your part better, we believe, because of the training you have had in this school. During the years you have been in Murray High School the student body and faculty have created and maintaineda high standard of scholar- ship, of ideals and of conduct. We are the stewards of the greatheritage today when, from afar and in our own country, ideas antipathetic of this Republic, to the bed rock principles, are being promulgated, and at a time when economic and social life is facing great perplexities. I am sure you will do your part in solving these problems and in making this a better country. 6 Q61 0 SAUDI- jafflftgg Left to Right: Laurine Tarry, Georgia Wear, Moclelle Outland, Annie Nell Mc- Reynolds, Mrs. Holmes Ellis, Kathleen Patterson, Marie Skinner, Nargaret Graves, Celia Crawford, Emma Darnell, Hilda Street.

Forty- nine "Poor little babes lost in the woods' grew up that year under the leadership of Mr. Haron West, sponsor, and Letitia Maupin, president. We came backa year later. Our intellect was broader, but our number smaller, only 43 this year. We lost Thomas Taylor, who joined the Navy, Graves Joyner, who went back to Tennessee, Robert King, who moved to Paris, Jimmy Rowland, who preferred work to school, Jean King, who enrolled at the Training School, Betty Murphy, who chose matrimony, Dick Berry, who moved to Washington, and Joyce Russell, who moved to Ohio. We gained three students: Hazel Dyer from the Training School, O. T. Stalls, Almo, Kentucky, and Maurice "Red" Myers. It was during our Sophomore year that we began to grasp the vision of our desired goal-graduation. All in all, the year was a success- ful one, but who could fail with such sponsors as Mr. Wilburn Cavitt and Mrs. Tom Rowlett and Robert Glin Jeffrey as president. In 1948 we became juniors and gained the title of 'upperclassmen' We were a determined group of youngsters, eager to continue what we had so bravely begun. We selected Mrs. Charles Snow and Miss Frances Grant as our leaders and Robert Glin Jeffrey as our President. This, our third year,marked a time of great gain, a gain of brains and beauty. Our new students were: Barbara Ann Ward from Corbin, Kentucky, Mary Ann Underwood, Flint, Michigan, June Overcast, Paris, Tennessee, and Jean Futrell and Wanda Burks,Almo, Kentucky. We lost Billy McDougal, Max Moore, and Maurice Myers, who quit school, and O. T. Stalls, who returned to Almo. Climaxing our Junior year, we gave the seniors a banquet at the Club House, the theme of which was the "Gold Digging Forty-nine r s " . On Sept. 6, 1949, we, the 47 seniors who compose the 1950 class, entered the gay old portals of Murray High to "walk the last mile of the way". This year has been one of complete victory. We have the co-op- eration of the entire student, body and faculty in all of our endeavors. Some of the highlights have been the Progressive Dinner, the Halloween Carnival, and the arrival of our class rings. Again this year, we were given two new students to taste the last bite of success withus. They were Phil Sprunger, Mansfield, Ohio, and Euva Parker of Detroit, Michi- gan. There was only one who did not enjoy the happiest year of all. He was Toy Lee Barnett, who chose matrimony. Mr. W. B. Moser and Mrs. Richard Giles have been our able guides, and Clegg Austin., our president. Soon we shall say farewell to Murray High School and to all the things which we hold so dear to our hearts. As we leave we say to the faculty: You have given us the most precious gift of all---confidence and faith, if our lives do not live up to the high ideals you have given us it will not be because of your faults. May we only say--Thanks for every- thing. "We have fought a good fight, we have finished our course, and we have kept the faith". Henceforth,there is laid up for us a crown of glory, our diploma.

A lot can happen in 35 years. The scene is in the living room of the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jackie Miller. Jackie is trying to read the evening paper while Janice rambles on and on about her old friends of '50.j How well I remember the '50 class, It was filled with beauty, brain, and brassg The memories all come back again As I think about each loving friend. DWAIN ADAMS, better known as "BEAR", took a seat in theelectric chair. ' That well known singer, O. B. BOONE, sang "Seboney" and caused a typhoon. JUNE OVERCAST, who always was so silly, has settled down since she married BILLY. EUVA PARKER, so sweet and gay, is now MRS. NOBIE CARRAWAY. From the country GLADYS MC KINNEY fled, there was no joy after PHIL was dead. ALMA JO thought childern were next to heaven but she'd just planned on three, not thirty-seven. NEVA FITTS has gone quite farg she's a famous silent movie star. CHARLOTTE ROBERTS was struck by fateg because of her chemistry she had to leave the state. SANDRA SEARFOS is the star of the arenag she's now a famous baller- ina. SUSIE KING has done her partg she's made a hit in the field of art. ELSIE SLINKER was Texas bound when John Power's a lovely model found. Because of her talent with her horn, her name is in lights: JEAN CORN. MR. MOSER and MRS. GILES are both great conquerors, because they chose the '50 class to sponsor. MARTHA JEAN STAGENER finally made "Big Time" by doing bubble dances from 7 to 9. JENNELL FOY is now a success by teaching home ec. and doing her best. Wonderful and beautiful JEAN FARRIS is now the queen of all Paris. BARBARA ANN WARD, lovely in face and leg, is tied up now with a boy named CLEGG. BETTY PEARL said she wouldn't settle down, but now a man she's finally found. That cute little girl, HAZEL DYER, now extracts teeth withwire pliers. When it comes to looks she tops the rest, that's how JEAN FUTRELL won MISS AMERICA contest. . . A talented artist, BETTY JUNE WEST, now ranks higher than all the best. 32 BETTY THURMAN, the perfect young wife, has devoted herself to CHAD for life. MARY ANN, who publishes the NEW YORK EDITIONS, has come to the top and has no competition. I ' MAX CHURCHILL'S business is doing wellg they say he's better than DIGGER O'DELL. A more talented guy you never met than CLEGG AUSTIN and his clari- net. GENE CATHEY is playing professional ball and it is rumoured that he's grown quite tall. They say DALLAS T. is doing quite well by working on the farm for his friend, H. L. You all remember BOBBY CARSONg he's chaufeur for GREER GARSON. SAM HARRIS has a car, his greatest asset, because no one can ever pass it. PAT DARNELL'S mind is very dim, his brain was just to much for him. In a lovely cottage where beauty abounds lives ROBERT GLIN with BARBARA DOWNS. BOBBY EDWARS turned out to be no phonyg he didn't really have a toni. JIMMIE LEE practices very hard: he's now the star St. Louis Card. CHARLES WASHBURN now has his dayg he's won the part of CHARLES BOYER. JIMMY LOVE, the photographer, has made good by making films in Hollywood. W. B. MOSER, JR., really hit it lucky when he found his girl in Hardin, Ky. JERRY BYNUM, known for his spunk, learned to extract odors from a skunk. RICHARD SHACKLEFORD is the king ofall the residents of SING SING. That lover boy, WILLIAM SMITH, turned out to be a great journalist. That salty sea-dog, DONALD STARKS, met his fate when he fell to the sharks. , A famous comedian, WILL ED STOKES, has made the top, and that is no joke. BUDDY VALENTINE is driving cars witha glittering gleam all the way to New Orleans. A Not RITA HAYWORTH, but WANDA BURKS, has married and divorced twenty-nine turks. , Q - PHIL SPRUNGER was shot and buried in town, he was too cute to stay around. H When BRINDA SMITH heard that PHIL was gone, she shot herselfg now they are where they belong. LETITIA MAUPIN is the bowery starg her voice has taken her quite far. An inmate in ALCATRAZ is GENE DUNN, he always did have too much fun. But now, I find, Ihave to gog JACKIE eats more than any I knowg I better go find him a filler, . Until then, I'm yours, JANICE MILLER. 33 SUPQP Zafiueb E 3521 :iff-1:-4 'if -S is Q 5- T5-xx "if QFM5 :Rf Q 53-lFf1yXXf .- .- Q ' XA 'K'k W X ik X Xf . x xgfwx- - X N N X XXX MX X ' .

NOT PICTURED: Walter Moser, Jr. ummary The Murray High Tigers ended their 1949 football season with a recordof four wins and six losses. ' Coach Ty Holland started the season with only two regulars back from last year's squad: veteran halfback Glin Jeffrey and Dwain Adams, who switthed to end this year. Theother positions were filled with boys who were willing but lacked the age and experience necessary for a winning team. 46 ufflnl GP? After dropping the first two games to Ridgely, Tenn. by a score of 14-6, and to Russellville, 19-O, the Tigers swept to three straight victories by downing Mor- ganfield Z7-6, Mayfield Z0-0, and Fulton 42-6. The streak was snapped by Bowling Green by a Z0-0 score. The Tigers then bounded back to Ahand Madisonville a Z7-12 score. In the next game the Tigers were a three touchdown underdog but gave a great battle before falling to Hoptown, 7 -6. The next week a strong Butler High team of Princeton defeated the Tigers 12-6. COACHES In the final game of the season, the Tigers tangled with the powerful Blue Devils of Grove High, Paris, Tenn. The Grove High team was ranked as the top team in Tennessee and the Tigers rated a 40-60 point underdog by most people. But the Tigers battled the highly favored Paris boys off their feet for three periods before weakening in the last quarter and dropping the game by a 2.5-0 decision, giving the Tigers a total of 4 wins, 6 losses.
