We were under the guidance of Miss M. 1,. Valentine. Joan Coolev was president of the Freshman class and candidate for “Miss Homecoming. She didn’t become “Miss Homecoming " , but acted as an attendant during the Corona¬ tion exercises. In all the activities of the school we had representatives. Betty Payne won a “Good Citizenship” medal and Jeanette Stephens the award for being the Best English Student. For beginners, it was a successful year. Miss A. M. Miller became our class Adviser our Sophomore year. Betty Payne was elected class president. Willie King, Robert Jeter, Alvin Gash. James Pilgrim, Robert Cauley and Ralph Harris represented our class in football; Eunice Owens, Edith Cash, Joan Cooley, Jeanette Stephens, Willie Kate Perryman, Gwen Sumrney, Jean Hodges, Ethel Russell, Mary L. James and Lillie Ree |ones represented the class in basket¬ ball. The next year, 1952, the class became proud Juniors. Edith Cash was elected class president. Upon entering school that fall we realized that we had a great task remaining before us, the prom, which would call for much labor and time. Our Prom theme was “Hitch Your Wagon to a Star” which was most effectively carried out with a red wagon in the floor center, bearing the motto with silver letters. Extending from the wagon were silver reins that were connect¬ ed to a huge star in a starry sky. As the most athletic girl student, Eunice Owens who was captain of tlje girls’ basketball team won a medal. Betty Lou Payne, an all around student won an Activity medal. In September, 1953, we became the honorable Seniors of Ninth Avenue High School. We are still under the supervision of a very fine teacher, Miss A. M. Miller. During the month of October, the Senior Class was asked to be guests at A. T. College along with many other high schools. The trip was very in¬ spiring. We are indeed proud to have from the Senior Class the Captain of the foot¬ ball team, Alvin Gash and Ralph Harris, Co-captain. The present Senior Class is the most talented and successful class in the his tory of Ninth Avenue High. Added to the other achievements this year’s seniors also had the winning candi¬ date for Miss Homecoming, namely, Rosa Lee Walker. We sincerely thank those teachers who labored so earnestly to teach us. So we take the great responsibility of trying, not to make your labor be in vain.

To our dear teachers we leave our patience, that they may bear with the class to come. To the class which will come after us we leave our old desks with our initials carved upon them, and some good chewing gum parked underneath. We leave them our French Books with the translation written between the lines— incorrectly and our math books with our wrong estimate of the answers jotted down in the margin. We leave them old notebook papers for spitball ammunition, and may they have the privilege of remaining after school just as long as we did, if they use it. Also shoes, two old umbrellas and a sweater that one of us has for¬ gotten that he owns. To the janitor we bequeath a bottle of aspirin tablets for the innumerable headaches we have caused him. To our homeroom teacher we leave a ray of hope for surely the next cllass will be easier to handle than we were. To the Board of Education we offer our sincere gratitude for making this, our high school education, possible. Our individual bequests are as follows: Grant Norman wills his ability to work geometrical problems to Mary Louise Gash and any of the other juniors who don’t know how. Rosa Lee Walker wills her politeness to Alice Sue Gash. Clarence Darity wills his nice disposition and quietness to Harold Summey. Jessie Mae Smith wills her sweet disposition to Gladys Benjamin and her posi¬ tion as store manager to Thelma Norman and Shelby Jean Norman. James Pilgrim wills his ability to play center cn the football team to Scott Ferguson. Willie Kate Perryman leaves her ability to sing to Joan Smith and her shape to Peggy Jean Campbell. Ruth Peak wills her walk to Lula Bell Smith. Eunice Owens wills her legs to Frances Edwards and her basketball Captain¬ ship to Mildred Clay. Ethel Mae Russell wills her first soprano voice to Doris Barnett. Joan Cooley wills her ability to play basketball to Jamesetta Summey and her height and size to Harretta Lewis. Betty Lou Payne wills her ability to do things without being told to Frances Edwards. Margaret Hunter wills her quietness to Gladys Benjamin. Edith Cash leaves her ability as an all-around student to Luna Mooney. Gwendolyn Summey leaves her neatness and ability to read music to Joan Smith. Ralph Harris wills his ability to play football to Harold Summey. Nina Smith wills her seat on the bus and her chapel seat to Virginia Ballard. Martha Hunter wills her height to Marva Robinson. Jeanette Stephens wills her studiousness to Carrie Lee Lynch; her neatness to Alice Sue Gash. Willie King wills his ability to mind his own business and his football and basketball positions to Cary Booker. Alvin Gash bequests his job as Captains of the Football and Basketball teams to William Green with the hopes that it will not go to his head as some other jobs have done. Thomas Mills leaves his ability to get a girlfriend and keep her to Wallace Hallback; his prayers for George Hodges. We give the Sophomore and Freshman classes the following advice: learn to work, know that development comes sooner through bearing failures than success. It isn t fun, but look at nineteen hundred and fifty-four and be encouraged. To our parents we give and bequeath restful nights and peaceful dreams now that a burden has been lifted. Finally to the principal, teachers and friends we leave the memory of the best¬ looking and most intelligent class it has been their privilege to know Duly attested this day of May 1954.

After doing a little traveling I find everyone raving about the Senior Class of ’54, saying that it is the most commend¬ able, intelligent and athletic class ever to enter the doors of Ninth Avenue. I am sure our class will be one to go down in history as the class above all classes. This is a little information about us. We are among the youngest Seniors ever to graduate from this school. Speaking of shapes and sizes, it has been said that this class possesses some of all kind, such as pencils—Nina Smith and Willie King; softballs—Ethel Russell and Bobby Russell—it runs in the family—Pepsi Cola—Ruth Peak and Alvin Gash. The reason this class is so healthy, they eat everything from Sugar Corn Pops to Baked Turkey. If you ever see a Senior on Ninth Avenue’s campus, you could be sure that he wouldn’t be alone. They are always paired off. In the future, members of our class will be housewives, teachers, stenographers, doctors, X-ray technicians, dental hygienist, beauticians, librarians, surgeons, jet pilots, home economics teachers, photographers, physical education instructors, nurses, commercial lawyers, pro football players, artists and service men. Three- fourths of our clalss plan to attend college or business school and Ralph Harris plans to attend Eighth Avenue. The schools of our choice are Fisk, New York School of Photography, Howard, San Diego State College, Notre Dame, U.C.L.A., Bennett, Winston-Salem, Barbara Scotia and N. C. State. So far Eunice Owens is the only student of our class who hasn’t missed a day of high school. Perhaps there was no room for her at home in the daytime. All of the Seniors have the distinction of being the best chewing gum poppers in the school but Martha Hunter is the “Queen Gum Fopper.” Revlon lipstick is tops with the girls and boys of our class except Thomas Mills, who says he never touches the stuff. Robert Cauley has been noted as the “class lover boy” and the Senior class girls as “the school lover girls.” JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS President . Vice President Secretary .
