Text from Pages 1 - 50 of the 1944 volume:

FROM " VALEDICTORY " We who stand tonight at the meeting between a happy past and an unknown fut¬ ure have reached not the end but the Commencement of our lives. We have built our lives for the past. elevdn years in this school. And thanks to the teachers who strived to make us into men and women of tomorrow, we are on the last steps of school days. We have enjoyed these years, some, were trifling, and some were hard, but now we go into the future, we do not know what It will bring. Classmates, let us resolve that we will fight for a place in the nation. Kay the colors of our class " red white and blue " and all that they stand for be symoblized in its large sense, the princi¬ ples of our nation fire us wi ' th zeal to make of ourselves such men and women of the United States as well.as.Nahunta High School will be proud of. Let us, as we- go out into the future, prove to the world that our High School was certainly one of tho best mills in the world for rindin out individuals that are worth while.

Nearly all of these came from the farm. We were young and eager to fill our hearts with the honey of wisdom. Now it came to pass that as the knowledge ' seekers were filling their minds with wisdom, a great conflict began, a great war, nation against nation. And so ' it came to pass that we were disprivi-. lidged a great deal. And then it came to pass that many, with their eyes toward the future, commenced to study but some because of different difficulties began to drift from the green field of knowledge. One said, " My brother has gone to the ' call of his country, therefore I cannot grad¬ uate. " Another said, " I am dull and cannot learn, therefore I cannot graduate. " And a third said, " I care little for school and I do not wish to graduate. " So thus the class is decreased until there only twenty-three. Now it so happened that this land into which - this class entered was ruled by a man of much wisdom. None other than C. R. Lewis. He spoke unto them and said he would do all he could to help them over come their evils. Then with the assurance pigeon, it took the name of the class of ' 44. Now it so happened that there dwelt in this field of knowledge 10 women and 2men. Their names being in the order of the grades they taught Mrs. Harvey Dickenson, Mrs. T. W. Dees, Mrs. Ben- ard Pike, Miss Ida Champion, Miss Mary Wood Thom¬ pson, Mr. Mark Chestnutwood, Miss Sallie Henderson Miss Ellen Boone, Miss Ruth Barnes Smith, Mr. Prank Randal, Miss Susie Bell Tatham, and our present teacher, Mrs. Henry Cox. We range in weight from Henry Paul Cogdell ' s 10S pounds to Doublas Edgerton ' s 160 pounds. We range In height from Henry Paul Cogdell ' s 5ft. five inches to J. Worrell Rollins 5ft. eleven inches (without his high heel pumps). In age we range from Josephine Pearshall ' s six¬ teen years and five months to Virginia Sasser ' s nineteen years and 3 months. CLASS OP ' 44 Senior Class Songs know howour parting grieves You ' ll The time has come to bid you farewell. Parents and friends And teachers ' again We ' ll miss you. For things that you ' ve done.

To keep from crying, because we hate to leave you,. GLASS OP ' 44 Farewell Mo test No report Cards Since our school days are gone; No teachers No classmates We hate to say so-long.
