We, the Senior Class of 1955, of Nahunta High School, have at last come near to one of our fondest dreams, graduating from high school. When we entered high school in 1951, there were thirty of us, with Mr. George Spirtos as our sponsor. Robert Edgerton was elected President; Gordon Wells, Vice President; Margaret Morris, Secretary; and Shelby Jean Pope, Treasurer. We were really green freshmen, and it took us a while to get used to the golden rules set for us. Our biggest thrill as a freshman was giving the Seniors a party. Vacation soon descended upon us after that. Just imagine us in the fall of 1952 as sophomores with Miss Louisiana Hurdle as our sponsor. We settled down and had a happy year. Gordon Wells was elected President; Robert Edgerton, Vice President; Margaret Morris, Secretary -Treasurer; and Dorothy Ivey, Reporter. Before we could even realize it, vacation was with us once more. That glorious fall of 1953 came when we returned to school as " jolly " Juniors. O ur class officers were Tommy Howell, President; Jonathan Hooks, Vice President; Dorothy Ivey, Secretary; Lula Belle Berry, Treasurer; and Margaret Morris, Reporter. Our first excitement was our Junior Play, " Everything Happens To Us, " which was a big success. Miss Rhoda Bone was our sponsor this year and she really worked hard to make the play a success. Then came the banquet when the Juniors and Seniors enjoyed an evening of pleasure in a Mexican atmosphere in the gymnasium. Then the commencement exer- cises came and naturally we just had to help the Seniors graduate. Jonathan Hooks, Dorothy Ivey, Margaret Morris, Bobby Fields, and Tommy Howell had the honor of being chosen marshals. In the fall of 1954 we came back to school with dreamy ideas. We were going to graduate in May. Our class officers elected were Allen Overman, President; Margaret Morris, Vice President; Dorothy Ivey, Secretary; Lula Belle Berry, Treasurer; and Gordon Wells, Reporter. Our first excitement was our Senior Play, " Professor, How Could You! " directed by our class advisor, Mrs. Molton Gurley. The play went off as a bigger success than we had ever hoped for. Then came our trip to Washington which was the crowning experience of our twelve years in school. And now, the commencement exercises which will put us out into the world on our own. May we take at this time just a moment to thank everyone who has helped us in any way to reach this goal. It is a long, hard road to travel, but the reward is waiting for you at the end.

OKct MtCUKCHt Friends, this is a solemn occasion. We, the class of 1955, having passed on to our rewards, have left behind, this last will and testament. 1, as legal advisor of the class, drew up this document, and it is cast-iron, unbreakable and legal. Being collectively of sound mind and having the fear of no human being, save that Mr. Hollowell and Superintendent Proctor, we are assembled here that this will may be read. Listen at- tentively, and be thankful for what you are about to receive. ARTICLE 1 To our teachers we convey our ability to know a good thing when we see it. As this ability has been largely created by their instructions, we are merely returning to them their own invaluable gift; also, a suggestion for making their lives easier, less difficult lessons, not so many tests, and fewer rules to be obeyed. ARTICLE 11 To our school we leave our fame, and hope the students won ' t let it die. We realize they can ' t live up to our achievements, but we trust they won ' t skid back too far. ARTICLE III To the members of the Junior Class, our rightful heirs, who will so soon take our places, we do hereby will our laughs, giggles, unsolved puzzles, tardy and absent marks, all the unchewed gum, cold lunches, half-filled notebooks, and all other unclaimed properties that have no value whatsoever. ARTICLE IV Personal bequeaths; Robert Edgerton leaves his ability to play basketball to Billy Rae Holland, so the team will have a star next year. Ruby Nichols wills her ability to skip class and not get caught to Melva Jean Mitchell. Melba Aycock leaves her bench warming ability to Robbie so the team will have a bench-warmer next year. Bobby Fields wills his ability to work algebra to Cecil Lane. Joseph Rollins leaves his ability to keep quiet and study to the eighth grade boys. Lula Belle Berry wills her trim figure to Reba Wiggins. Marie Winders leaves her friendliness, good looks, and figure to Atuiette Sassar, hoping she will follow in Marie ' s footsteps. Dorothy Ivey leaves her ability to be teacher ' s pet to all underprivileged students. Jonathan Hooks leaves his ability to fire the boiler to anyone who likes Chesterfields. Allen Overman leaves his ability to win trips to Inez Sasser. Tommy Howell leaves his geometry and ruler to anyone who takes it next year. Gordon Wells wills his craving for algebra to A. B. Crawford. Cooper Dees leaves his laziness to David Stafford since he doesn ' t have any. Margaret Morris leaves her ability to get along in any situation to Shirley Bedford. Vernon Sullivan leaves his ability to flirt to Dickey Pierce hoping he will catch on after a while.

As I jolt along on the school bus 1 breathe a sigh of relief, another day has gone by, 1 think. My thoughts wander to my classmates whom 1 must leave after this last year. The noises around me dim and at last fade away. In my own private world of thought nothing can penetrate. My inner self seems to drift into the future, through the years and into the unknown. The parade begins. Ths mist swirls around a shadowy figure, the shadows lift and 1 find myself beside an old friend of mine, Lula Belle Berry. She, 1 find, did make up her mind between the two professions she was interested in. She is busy trying to control and teach a class of girls in home economi cs. After a struggle, she gets the class fairly quiet and the long grind begins. Wanting not to embarrass Lula Belle by trying to help, 1 move on. The mist billows out again, Lula Belle disappears but 1 find 1 have traveled into another time and life. Vernon Sullivan comes into view. He has changed as 1 can tell from his entire manner. He seems sure of his goal and the means of reaching it. A farmer and a very good one, he is which doesn ' t surprise me. His hitch in the army has been served and he and his charming wife are happy. Before 1 get the chance to observe more the scene clouds and 1 know I ' m bound for another trip. Much to my surprise a nicely furnished neat room appears. What are these gadgets 1 wonder. My question is answered by the attractive young woman that emerges from the shadows. Marie Winders has reached her dream of becoming a beautician. Quite suc- cessful too from the looks of the surroundings. As 1 start to explore the shop 1 am sud- denly yanked out of this scene on my way to more adventure. A shadowy blue figure sways toward me. The figure takes the shape of a young man in an airman ' s footsteps. By the stripes on his shoulder 1 assume he turned part of his charm on for the brass. My departure is rather abrupt from Robert to my next visitor whom 1 find walking along the street obviously on her way to work. 1 do a double take to recognize her. Yes, it ' s Ruby Nichols. Here is where she works, a swanky Beauty Salon. She like Marie has succeeded in her career of a beautician. Congratulations are due but 1 haven ' t the time for 1 leave Ruby as 1 continue on my journey. A familiar face swings open the doors of my memory. Yes, this is none other than Gordon Wells walking as if he owns the world. A second later 1 see why. In the window of a book store is this sign, " Best Seller for the Month illustrated by Gordon Wells. " 1 see that he hasn ' t wasted his extra- ordinary talent. The mist blurs my vision once again and another classmate looms before me. This one 1 can recognize by the radiant happy expression on her face. Margaret Morris has at last married her beloved boyfriend of school days. It has been a long wait but I ' m sure she will be blissfully happy for a good while. Rather than disturb her radiant thoughts 1 continue down the road of life. " Whoa there! " Stops me in my tracks, this is Joseph Rollins talking to a balky old mule. Joseph 1 find is farming and likes it. Old mother earth, he loves, and rejoices in seeing the products of his toil sprout and grow. He is having no trouble from the contented look on his face. 1 pause long enough to wish him a good harvest and I ' m off for parts unknown. The mist swirls madly and from it emerges an old chum of mine. She is in the mist of a busy office. Investigating further I discover that Melba gathered all her forces and entered into the field of commercial art. From the looks of things she ' s very busy. Having nothing to do 1 journey onward. Gazing around I observe that Bobby has overcome some of his shyness. He seems more sure of himself. He is staying with his father still but I have a feeling not for long because he has that moonstruck look that spells love. Having no time to linger and gather more information 1 depart with a hasty good-bye. This can only be Tommy Howell at work with his mechanical mind. Old cars and such, litter the rather large building. From the name on the front I gather Tommy is doing very well. A female voice calls out, this can be no other than Tommy ' s wife for his face lights with a feeling I ' ve never seen before. The mist steals in at this time clouding the figures and off I go again. On stopping I hear a buzzing sound and a loud ouch. I look and sympathize with the little boy in the dentist chair. For Cooper Dees never was too careful with a knife. Cooper looks tired, too many patients, I suppose. He hasn ' t changed very much for I see he has a very pretty nurse to help him. I go off chuckling as I remember some of his teenage antics. A large granite building is my next stop. One of my classmates hasn ' t done this well, I think. They haven ' t, it ' s just a community building. I hear a noise and lo and behold it ' s Allen Ray surrounded by a group of young boys. From the talk I piece together the fact that he has become a 4-H leader. He is well qualified, I think. He looks very prosperous but I don ' t have time to find out exactly what he does. The mist billows out again and then thins for it must make way for a very shiny, new convertible. This gets a whistle from me but I stop and stare for behind the wheel is Jonathan Hooks looking as proud as a peacock. The car speaks for his success and he has a college tag on the bumper. This must be about his last year. He made it and with flying colors. There remains but one more member of the Senior Class, the mists twirls and swirls and jerks to an abrupt halt. A voice is heard, " Dorothy, you ' re home. ” The voice belongs to my bus driver, Mar- garet Morris trying to get me out of my daze. Oh, well I decide, tomorrow is another day, maybe I can get the last member. After all, tomorrow is the FUTURE.

I So t (TUNE: CHAPEL IN THE MOONLIGHT) Dear Nahunta we are leaving and the days are drawing near, but the memories will lin-ger throughout all the coming years. How we ' d like to stay here longer for we really love you so, but the fields now call for service and we ' ll have to say good-bye. Till we meet a-g-a-i-n, God be with you till the end, never fear we ' ll be near and we ' ll always think of you. How we hate to leave Nahunta, but the time has come to go, Tho our hearts will still be here throughout all the coming years. By Ruby Nichols We are the Seniors of Nahunta High, Who have gone through many years of strife; Preparing for the years to come. When we shall start a new life. In work or play we ' ve stood the test. Through all the years of school; We ' ve always done our very best. To follow the golden rule. We will always keep our motto, " To be rather than to seem. " Working together in every way. To make a winning team. The carnation is our flower. With its colors red and white; With red for courage and white for purity We ' ll always stand for the right. We are leaving our friends we love. In hopes that our memories stay; We will always think of Nahunta High, As we each go our separate way.
