With this in mind I will try to touch only upon the subjects which are of interest not only to the class but to others. In September of 1937 a few of us entered into our first year ' s work under the wonderful guidance of Mrs. Harvey Dickers on. At the close of the year she turned us over to Mrs. Estelle Edmunson Langely. For the four years that followed Mrs. Bernard Pike Mrs. Ida Champion Lewis, Mrs. Crandal, and Mrs. Mozelle Ricks Gurley had their hands full keeping us under control. Mrs. C. R. Lewis was our guide in the seventh grade and she turned us over to Miss Betty Mae Bennett who prepared us for our high school days which lay ahead. Our freshman year of high school was not very settled. As soon as we had establis hed ourselves under Mr. Burns she left to join her husband in Texas, For a while we were left without a teacher. Finally Mr. Albert Gainey came to the rescue and got us straightened out. Our sophomore year was much smooth- er under the guidance of Miss Mary Alice Stevens. Our junior year was filled with much work and little play under Mrs ' , Hazel Kirby Barnes. However, we had much fun in preparing our junior play, " Damsels In Distress " , which was a great success. -The junior- senior banquet was a grand finish to a great year. Then came our senior year which was filled to over- flowing with important events. Among these were parties, our Washington tour, and graduation. Our senior teacher Mrs. Bryson is due a lot of credit for her help in carrying on our class acti- vities. Our senior play, " The Baby Sitter " , was a great success. And, thanks to Mrs. Brjrson our ftt 4 cJgy Washington tour was very educational as well as a lot of fun. The Junior-Senior banquet which was carried out in the Easter motif f was a very diginfied occasion. During the period which our class history covers, five of our group haVe chosen to wed. Others have dropped out for various other reasons. The curtain is going down on the history of the class of 1949, but in reality it is just beginning. We sincerely hope that our future lives, will at least partially, repay the great debt which we owe to our parents, our teachers, and our -school. i V-, M ff i PRDPHECT Classmates, it is said that travelers, trudging over the burning sands of deserts often think they see ahead of them green palm trees and cool water. They urge their camels on but soon find their visions have faded. And sometimes people on a seashore see huge ghostly ships sailing across the sky but these ships also fade away before materializing. They are mirages. They are only reflections of actual palm trees, cool water, and ships far beyond the horizon. Sometimes these mirages are magnified and set against a background of colored mists, these mirages are not fancied, but they are reflections caused by layers of air which act as mirrors. Tonight X am seeing mirages. 1 am looking across the years into a mirror and seeing the reflections of the activities of the seniors as they pursue their daily occupation. This mirror magnifies so I can see clearly through the color mists images, face - ' a panorama of places and cities, and people come go there is Franklin Boswell racing in a new model car, an inven- tion of his own from his own factory and he is stopping at a brick mansion where children are playing on the lawn. And yes, there is a pretty woman romping with the children it is Jean. Ah! thirty, forty years hence I see a rich man a banker - riding in his auto, counting out his money and wear- ing his dearaonds - whose is it? His name? yes, I see. now J. C. Fields. Ah!, the dainty lady of society, envied and flattered by all, the queen of every gathering, the belle of every ball. Louise Wilkins. Now I feel so strong, so brave so bold! A woman of strong mind, strong will, and stronger temper: A lecturer on a strong subject an old maid demonstrating her independence of man. Her name escapes me - wait - oh, yesj It is Virgil Howard. Again I look and see a girl of high places a pioneer of distant wildness and vastness, comforting passengers as they soar thru the skies. Joyce Howell. A school of learning and a noble professor before his class They look at him in reverence of the vast learning he acquired at Nahunta High School. Why, what is that they call him as they bow in homage before him? Professor Edgar Wright Hooks. fl Mr r S N Hear the newsboy running down the street I What does he say? Listen? I catch it now - Extra! Estra! All about the big battle! American forces led to victory by the gallant soldier, hero of the hour, General Elton Parrish. Now I see a smartly dressed young lady - dashing to and fro over a large city, for Geraldine Gay has more work than she can do decorating the homes of the new rich. A fair lady, disappointed in some love affair, has become a nun and devotes her life to going about doing good to all the world. Her name is lost now for she is called " Sister Jane " but I see her face and she was once Roxie Lee Parnell. I see two most attractive nurses darting about doing their work in the same determined way that they used to work in High School. Wonder how both of them happened to get positions at Duke Hospital. They are Margaret Pike and Agnes Holland. A yell goes up from the crowd! Rudy Barnes, the sensa- tional new pitching star of the N. Y. Giants has just set a new strikeout record. He is being hailed as the new Bob Feller. There ' s a big crowd at Robert Ricks store watching his new television set, who is the commedian that they are so eagerly watching? Well I do believe its the new sensation of stage and radio C. H. Overman. C. T. Holland seems to be well setuated in his high pay- ing position as an accountant for the John D. Rockefeller Foundation. The neighborhood kids are gathering around the baseball hero for autographs on their baseballs. But he ' s preoccupied with his own kids and that doesn ' t leave much time for the neighbors. It is Billy Batten. Two more mirages, and as they seem to cling together I take them up at once and see two wives making sunshine and music within their walls. I see them exchanging confidences over the fence as to this or that domestic difficulty and see how, even in their marriage, could never be divided the girls who were so unseparable, Nannie Rose 5u;amerlin and Fanettie Wiggins. And now as I look I see dimly. in the far a last fleeting glimpse of Diana Robbins as she goes to the kitchen door and waves her apron as a signal for her husband and children to leave their. farm work and come to lunch. Mr. President brave and wise offical of the class of 1949 my duty is at an end, and the future is hereafter to thee and thy classmates an open book. May each of you follow faithfully the path I have marked out for your footsteps and make your lives the glorious successes the fates have decreed that they are to be. Dear Nahunta we are leav-ing, and the time is drawing near, School days are ending, vacation time is here, filling all the air with dream-ing. Mea-ories will linger ev-er, tho ' we wander far away, There comes a sigh of sad-ness as we leave you for ever and a day. From a-far we hear a whis-per, calling us for duty there, So like the rest we must all join the band, thrilling our hearts with rap-ture. Still our thoughts are with Nahunta, only time will ever tell, Be-lov-ed, friends, and school-mates we ' ll remember the school that we love so well. CLASS OQLOBS Red and White CLASS FLOWERS Red and White Roses CLASS MOTTO Less than our best is failure. i n- ffl y «? ft - FOEK Our school days now have passed end And yet we fondly linger here, For sweet each joy that we have known Tis hard to part from friends so dear. The future cefore us brightly lies, Yet here fond memories love to dwell, With saddened :ieart and dewy eyes To ail we bid fare. veil.
