With the sentiment of the above quotation to guide us as we begin the second epoch, we dedicate this the sixth edition of THE TIGER to the best friends that we have ever known, ever had; or shall ever know-Our parents. Page Three ADMINISTRATION MR. JOHN R. MARABLE, Principal " There’s a time for big things, a time for small things, and a time for some things, and a time for all things. " Now that our four years at Ninth Avenue are drawing to a close, we feel that this is the time to express our gratitude to you, Mr. Marable, for the wonderful help and guidance that you have given to us all. SUPERINTENDENT HUGH D. RANDALL Page Five MEM 1)111 M It is with humble sincerity that this edition of the Tiger pay tribute to the memory of a former member of the faculty of Ninth Avenue, Mrs. Eula B. Owens. A true friend to all, a most conscientious and diligent worker are some of the many qualities possessed by her. Her death, although untimely it might have been, leaves a void that will be difficult to fill, but we feel that the school and community are much better because of her life.

Team By 20-To-S Score The Ninth Avenue Tigers en¬ ded their 1954 grid season last night at the high school stadium with a 20-6 victory over Fair Forest, S. C. The game was hard-fought throughout and featured the run- nine of Cleveland Nesbitt. The Tigers scored late in the first period when Nesbitt faded to pass, found his receivers cover¬ ed, and raced 30 yards behind good blocking for the first score. Gardin kicked the extra point. In the third quarter, Nesbitt reeled off a 62-yard run from the Tigers 8-yard line. After two first downs, fullback Smith bucked over from the four. Gardin again kicked the point. The South Carolina rored its lone touchdown bird quarter. The final marker came on a 30-yard ! The Ninth Avenue High School Tigers gave their school a perfect homecoming with a 29-0 win over Well ford, S. C., at the high school stadium last night. The game was bitterly contest¬ ed by a scrapping South Carolina eleven most, of the way with the Tigers breaking away for three touchdowns and adding three ex¬ tra points to ice the game in the fourth period. The Tigers scored a TD in the first period but failed to add the extra point. A safety was added I in the second period and the Hen- ! dei ' sonville boys went to the dress- . ing room at intermission with an 8-point lead. Neither team was able to score in the third and the Tigers were going away in the fourth period. Cleveland Nesbitt tallied twice for the Tigers and Cary Booker and Mack Garden once apiece. Nesbitt and Gardin added the ex¬ tra points by rushing. The football game was the cli¬ max for the annual Home Coming ceremonies which began with a. street parade of bands and floats during the afternoon. The Steph¬ ens Lee band from Asheville join-, ed the local musicians for the parade and also for the halftime ceremony at the stadium. Sophomore Marlene Peak was crowned as the Home Coming uditor- ed the MACK GARDIN MANAGER WILLIAM E.
