• . 4 he Tiger 1956 FOREWORD As the years pass, it is easy to forget the joyous and happy high school days. The excited freshmen; sophomores-- " old hands " now; juniors--upper- classmen preparing and planning for the Junior-Senior Prom, and the hap¬ piest year of all-proud Seniors whom time could easily cast into obliv¬ ion. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that we, the seniors of Ninth Ave. High School, present this yearbook. We hope two things will be evident in our publication, youth and a chance for improvement. Youth means there will be a tomorrow and improvement means advancement. When considered jointly, they mean a better tomorrow. The Seniors sincerely hope this publication of the Tiger will find a fav- ored spot in your book collection.

Stephens who helped us so unselfishly and tirelessly. Without her we simply could not have made it. Posies are due Walter Mills, David Ward, Robert Smith, William Smith, Rosa Arnold, Bonnie Rhodes and Billie Mitchum for their strenuous work of securing Ads--which was not seat work, but feet work and it wasn’t easy. James Outlaw is responsible for all the typ¬ ing and we thank him, also Ulysses Mills for his art. We are doubly grateful to the merchants of the city and patrons of the school who gave so generously in assisting us with the financial side of yearbook production. To the faculty, student body, and student organizations, we are most appreciative of their invaluable spirit of cooperation. For those who supported us in ways not mentioned by name or otherwise, we are nonetheless appreciative. In short, we take this time to thank everyone for every possible aid and everything.
