the work, the fun, and the play that go into making
up a school, a community, and a nation.
We have worked to make this, the 1951 Tiger,

The only reward sought in making this book, is

To the graduating class of 1951 I extend my
sincere congratulations. We have been through
many interesting experiences during the past six
years and the thought of your not being a part of
Murray High School nextyear gives me afeeling
akin to sadness. In a broader sense, however, you
will still be with us. The contributions you have
made to this institution will be of help to future
classes and I hope that your associations through
the years will be worth something to you.
Sincerely yours ,

Wayback in 1947 there entered Murray High School,-the most
talented and promising green freshmen ever to cross the thres-
hold of MHS. For our class of 51 students had the fighting spirit
and Miss Mary Roberts and Miss I..ala Cain, sponsors, and Mary
Frances Williams, president, we fought our way victoriously
through our first year.
We came back in'48 a year older and a year wiser. Our num-
ber was increased to 55 even though we lost Maxine Crass and Joan
Miles who chose matrimony in place of schooling. Dona Wainscott,
who transferred to the Training School. Leslie Dyson who moved
back to Paducah, and Bobby Thornton joined the Army. But to
cover our loss we gained some truly great students, Paul Blanken-
Ship from Bradford, Tenn., Jack Greenfield from Ohio, and Patsy
Robertson from Ark. We were guided this year by Mrs. George
Hart, and Paul Blankenship, president.
In '49 we were at last upper classmen and were on the road
to success. We hated to lose Charlene Hatchett and Dallas Conyers
moved to Paducah, Janot Smith,moved to Decatur, Jack Greenfield
moved back to Ohio, and Noble Knight went to work. But we re-
ceived some great kids to climb a little higher with us. They were
Glenda Kirkland, from Paris, Tenn.g Will Ed Travis, transferred
from the Training School, Jean Emerine, from Benton, James
Roberts from Phoenix, Ariz. , and Charles Skaggs and Larry
Washer from Hardin.
We sponsored a "work day" to raise money for the traditional
Junior-Senior Banquet, which with the help of our sponsor, Mrs.
Hart, we carried out in grand southern style at the Woman's Club
House. We elected Paul Blankenship president.
On September 6, 1950, the 44 seniors whocompose the 1951
class entered Murray High to climb the last rung of high school
days. We were saddened by the loss of some of our dearestfriends,
Mary Frances Williams, who transferred to Virginia Intermont
College, Paul Blankenship who moved to Jackson, Tenn.g James
Roberts,who finished school in the summer, Lida Waldrop Darnell,
who moved to Detroitg Charlie Marr, who went to work, David
Outland, who went to the Navy, Latricia Stokes Travis, who went
to Texas to join her husbandg Sue MCC uistonwho moved to Detroit.
But those whojoined us for our last victory were welcomedwhole-
heartedly. They being Myrtle Ross Dunn who transferred from
Mayfield, and Shirley Henry from Jackson, N. C.
Sorne of the highlights of the year were successful Halloween
Carnival, arrival of our rings, monthly parties, senior play, and
our wonderful five day trip to New Orleans and Biloxi.
Mrs. George Hart was again elected sponsor.She had beenwith
us through tears of joy and sadness. We felt she was the only one
right for our last battle. Gene Hendon was chosen president and
editor of the annual.
Now we are saying farewell to our Alma Mater which has been
our home for these glorious past four years, and the faculty who
has tried hard to place us on the right road for life. It is our sin-
cere wish that MurrayHighwill be as proud of the '51 class as we
are of Murray High.
The MHS cafeteria is lighted ilp bright,
People are wondering what's going on tonight,
It's the reunion of the class of '51,
And the meeting has just begun.
fBy the way, do you remember when there was just a cafeteria and that
was all? But it wasn't that way long because they voted on the school
bond in the fall. And do you remember how it passed? We were all
mighty happy because it meant we had a grade school at last. Well, it's
been built now for many a year and I guess our children appreciate it
now that they're here.D
Getting back tothe reunion, Gene Hendon,
once president of the senior class,
Finally has reassembled this mass,
I see everything is about to start,
Sol guess that is where I must part.
