The Alumni Association of North Nashville
High School is proud to be presented in this,
the 1947 POLARIS.
This organization was founded in Septem-
ber, 1946, when a group of enthusiastic peo-
ple began mailing postcards to every grad-
uate of the school. Much progress was made
in those first meetings when officers were
elected and the Constitution and By-Laws
were written and adopted.
Our Association is carried on by the of-
ficers and the various committees: The Ways
CS Means Committee, Program, Memberships
We are striving to cooperate with the
school and the other organizations of the
community to make it a better place in which
We extend a cordial welcome to each and
every member of the 1947 Graduation Class
to join us in the Alumni Association, and to
become better acquainted with all of the
graduates of our "Alma Mater."
Sl Illll lZlASS HISlllIll
We, the graduating class of 1947, entered
North Nashville Iunior High School on Sep-
tember 8, 1941. There were 150 of us who
were assigned to the following teachers:
Miss Iimmie Harvell, Mrs. Elizabeth B. lack-
son, Miss Katherine Murray, and Mr. G. O.
Our junior high years in this "knowledge
box" passed rapidly. ln the ninth grade we
presented to our fellow classmates the Fresh-
man Party which everyone thoroughly en-
ioyed. At the end of the spring term of 1944,
the students who had completed the ninth
grade received their certificates in the audi-
torium at an informal graduation program.
As the time approached for us to advance
into the Senior part of North High, there was
no doubt in our minds as to our importance.
In fact, we were feeling quite grown-up, even
though a few of us had obtained tenth grade
status the hard way trepeating a coursel.
The senior high years passed. Each day
provided more classes with more work. We
learned that school work can be difficult,
but stretching ever before us was our long
sought goal, to be a Senior in North High
The year before we attained this coveted
rank found us well represented in the hap-
penings around school. We took part in all
the events of the year from football to essays.
During this period we produced a musical
play entitled, "Iolly Iunior Follies", the first
play of its type to be presented at North High.
lt was so well received at its initial produc-
tion, that after numerous requests, we re-
peated it. Also in the spring term of our
iunior year, we entertained the senior class
formally at the annual lunior-Senior Prom.
Six of our boys were members of the base-
ball team which won the lnterscholastic
League Championship. They were Virgil
Nipper, Lindy Freeman, Hansel Krantz. Iirn-
my Iennette, Rav Rector, and Bud LaRue.
Now we are Seniors! Iirnmy lennette was
elected president of our class. Martha Iones,
by virtue of the highest average. was presi-
dent of the Honor Society. Ann lones servefl
as president of the Senior Y-Teens. The PO-
LARIS Staff was headed by lean Medley, as
editor. This year the football squad counted
among its number two seniors---Virgil Nip-
per and Iimrny Iennette, who played in the
All-Star game at the end of the season. Sara
Io Chapman was chosen Football Queen
and reigned with her two attendants, Ann
Shearon and Mary Lee Burns, at the home-
coming game. Iames Dickey was chosen
Company Commander of the R. O. T. C.
Four senior girls served as R. O. T. C. spon-
sors-Honorary Captain, Alberta Odum, and
Honorary Lieutenants, Ann Shearon, Bettye
Sears, and Sara Io Chapman. Mary Lee
Burns and Carl Schutt were victorious in the
closely contested election of Miss North High
and Bachelor of Ugliness. They were intro-
duced along with the superlatives at a dance
given by the Seniors in their honor. Other
outstanding social events were a Wiener
roast and a sneak day. The North Sim' won
first place honors in the Anti-Tuberculosis
Contest with Martha Iones and lean Medley
as Co-Editors of the publication. lean Wade
played the part of a native in the production.
"Rain" at the Nashville Community Play-
house. We were happy to welcome four re-
turning servicemen to our number--Paul
Waggoner, Albert Friedman, Elvin Hoffman
and Dan Hayes.
We are leaving to posterity the first com-
posite picture of a graduating class at North.
It is to be hung in the Library.
The time is drawing near. We are grow-
ing rnore and more distracted as we begin
our last minute cramming for exams. Be-
tween roaming the halls and eating lunch
we worry about our invitations, flowers,
dresses and suits. Our minds tif still work-
ing? hop from one thing to another.
Finally the last days arrive and we fight
through these exams pleading with the
teachers to have mercy on us. One exam fol-
lows the other. They are finished! We await
the results. During this period we could
easily become mental cases.
The last hour is here! We slowly climb the
steps and enter into our probable doom.
What? We all passed!
On Wednesday, Iune 4, 1947, we find
ourselves in a happy state of mind as we
make out way to our graduating program.
Everyone is talking ct once: "Be Careful,
you'll step on my shine." "ls my hair
straight?" "Hurry upl it's almost time."
Slowly we make our way to the stage
and take our places. We sit nervously while
all of the speeches are being made. At long
last those are finished and we await our
diplomas. Look, a tear in your eye. Why, I
am crying, too. In a few minutes our high
school days will be over. These are among
the happiest moments of our lives.

Youthful eyes are turning
To higher things in life,
Desire is always burning
With the lceenness ol ci knite.
Standing on a hilltop,
With dawn iust breaking through
One sees success with brightness
Outlined against the blue skies
The golden clouds appear
Winging their way Y-like sailboats
With happiness each year.
Happy days ot high school
Kind teachers, helping all
Having fun together
Laughing at a lallg
Pushing ever forward
We've lett these joys behind,
Still keeping all the knowledge
For kindling of the mind.
Eyes are always turning
To the little things that count
Looking past so many tears
Past want and greed and doubt,
To a path that's bright and shiny,
Which leads to days ot ioy
A tar-off goal worth reaching
By every girl and boy.

Sl Illlt MASS PIIIIPHHZY
One day, while wandering through the heath in the
Moorlands, I chanced upon a cave. Wondering, I en-
tered. There I found three witches hovering about a
fire over which hung a small black pot. They were ugly,
bearded creatures dressed in tattered garments. Screened
by a boulder at the mouth of the cave, I heard them
muttering among themselves.
First Witch: "When shall we three meet again, in
thunder, lightning, or in rain and whom shall we
Second Witch: "Ere the set oi sun."
Third Witch: "Where the place?"
First Witch: "Here!"
Second Witch: "To meet with Betty."
At this I forgot my fear and entering said, "Speak if
-you can. What are you?"
First Witch: "All hail, Betty! Graduate of North Nash-
ville High! Class of I947!"
"How know you these things? Tell me more," I cried.
First Witch: "We are but creatures from the realm of
darkness. What would you know?"
"Why-er-uh-what has happened to all my class-
Second Witch: "Shall we tell her?"
Third Witch: "Oh, fair is foul and foul is fair:
Hover through the fog and filthy air."
Here the three figures drew nearer the fire. Into the
pot each dropped a handful of leaves t?l. Over it the
old cranes commenced their incantation of "Double
trouble! Boil and Bubble!" The pot began to boil mer-
rily. I am not sure what happened next: but, over that
pot I saw a vision. It is still as clear to me as if I
were just seeing it. I remember exclaiming, "Why, it's
a grocery store, William Fuller's Super Market, and
who is that waiting to be served? It's Mrs. Ianene
Baskin and Mrs. Mary Leaver Lyle.
"More, more," I cry as the vision vanishes.
I vaguely hear them muttering, "Double trouble!
Boil and Bubble!" This time a business office appears.
Yes, there's Martha Lee and Betty Harper. Behind
them is their boss. It's Virginia Thomas! Will wonders
The vision blurs. Next, I see a photographer's studio.
There's Tony Mitchell taking snaps of that famous
Power's Model, Bobbye Pardue. And lurking behind in
the shadows is that wolf of a bookkeeper, Richard
Now, it's a hospital. No! I am not sure. Oh! it's the
Central State Hospital. I often thought a few people
I have known belonged there. I believe I recognize
the doctors. They are Richard Rothman, M. D. and
Robert Burgess, M. D. Their pretty red-haired nurse is
Margaret Iones. I wonder who the patients are? Sam
Crocker and Ray Rectorkmy goodness!
"Don't stop," I beg. "That can't be all."
Red buttons? What are-oh, a telephone switchboard!
There's Dorothy Bradley and Betty Sears. Quick! Let's
listen. Who's on the wire? Why it's Wallace Kinkade
talking. "Martha, be sure and have the twins clean
for dinner. I'm bringing home guests. Now, don't start
worrying. They're old friends, Miss Ann Shearon and
Mrs. Alberta Brown. Mrs. Brown is bringing Chucky,
Ir., as company for the twins." The connection is broken
on his " 'Bye, darling."
I turned to the crones who were edging away from
the fire. "This can't be all of them. You mustn't stop!"
The old crone whom I have designated as the First
Witch put another handful of leaves C?l into the pot,
mumbling all the while, "Double trouble! Boil and Bub-
What's this I see next? Looks like a rally of some
sort. It's election day in Mississippi and the rival can-
didates for governor are Gene Wallace and Earl Kea-
ton. There's Iean M. Wallace leading a cheering sec-
tion and I do believe that's Mary Io Stone trying to
keep down the booing whenever Earl gets up. She's
keeping books at B. Iohnson's Drugstore.
Now, I see an airport. There's the pilot, Mattie
Schurer, waving to us. Wonder who's on board. Why,
there's Ann and Iustine Iones. I hear Ann is playing
violin solos with Sammy Kaye and that Iustine is hap-
pily married. I see Mrs. Audrey Vaughn. I imagine
George was too busy making doughnuts to get away.
The Services are well represented on this flight. Here
are Ensigns Halton Manners and Iames Madden argu-
ing with Sergeant James Dickey and Paul Waggener
who is now a civilian. I'd like to know who wins?
We're coming in for a landing. Why, it's La Guardia
Field and I see Sara Io Nipper down there to meet us.
While waiting for a taxi we get to swapping the latest
gossip. She had just seen Mrs. Mary Lee Fitzgerald and
Mrs. Connie Mathis talking to Shelton Pilkerton and
G. L. Thomas the other day. They had come up to the
big city on a vacation from Dury' , I believe. I hear
that Tommy Webb is looking for a partner. Now that
the war is over, there are plenty of cigarette butts
down at Sulphur Dells and the job is too much for him.
"Strl-i-ke three and you're out!" Iimmy Iennette really
knows his ball. Virgil Nlpper and -Carl Schutt are on
base and the grand stands are roaring. fWe had trouble
getting that taxi: so we arrived latel. Rooting for them
is Hansel Krantz and a traveling salesman by the
name of Lindburgh Freeman. Hansel is managing the
New York Yankees. I see that famous surgeon, Bo
Bardlll, over ln the stands. On the way out we stop
at Bud La Rue's piewagon. Hm-ml They're good. En-
joying them are Zelbert Weakley and Donald Saunders.
Opening night on Broadway! I passed that million-
aire, Milton Barnes, ln the lobby of the theater. And
who happens to have seats next to me but Tommy
Dozier escorting a beautiful blonde. The play is Hamlet.
The stars are lean Wade and "Popeye" Barnes.
What? The sign says, "Cars washed and greased
Sl.00. Elvin Hoffman, Proprietor." My taxi swishes to a
stop for gas. The pump attendant is Charles I.. .Thomp-
son. l'd never have known him: he was so covered
with grease. A car comes in behind us. It is driven
by Ioe King. Those kids of his screaming their heads off
get on my nerves. As we drive away another car pulls
in driven by Albert Friedman. I am certain I saw Betty
Io Sneed in the back seat. They must be getting back
from the Notre-Dame-Navy game.
The vision fades: the witches vanish. I find myself
seated again behind my desk at National Life. It was
fun while lt lasted. Au revolrl

ln as much as we, Robert Burgess, Iustine Iones and
Ann Shearon, having more or less successfully passed
long and laborious years at North, and now realizing

trials, are due some special compensation and dispen-
sation do bequeath to them the following things. There-
fore, in the presence of these witnesses sound fn mind
t?l and body, and in solemn realization of our respon-
sibility we do, therefore, leave to our fellow classmates

FOURTH: To the Junior High School, we bequeath our

activity will help them later on in their high school life.
FIFTH: To the Faculty, we bequeath our thanks for
the happiness and memories they have given u dur-
ing the past four years in the hope that they will re-
member us forever.
LASTLY: We do hereby nominate and appoint all

our last will and testament.

In the spring of 1946 ,the North Yankees.
under the direction of Coach Hickman E.
Duncan, won the Interscholastic League
Championship for the second consecutive
The Yanks played I3 regular league
games and were defeated only once. At the
end of the season they competed in a play-
off at Sulphur Dell with Central, T. I. S. and
Litton. After the drawing was made, the
Yanks played T. I. S. and defeated them 3-2
by an extra inning. The big game played
with Central was for the Championship. The
boys from North Nashville calmly shut out
the Tornados with a 5-O score.
The great pitching arm of Ioe Casey, the
timely hitting of Iirnmy Iennette and Virgil
Nipper, and the daring base running of Mau-
rice Partain and Lindy Freeman were respon-
sible for the Yanks' success. Casey won 14
games and suffered the only defeat in his high
school career at the hands of Hume-Fogg.
Casey pitched three no-hit games during the
regular season. The leading hitters for the
North combine were Iimmy Iennette and
Virgil Nipper, both of whom hit .415 and
tied for fourth place in the league hitting.
The base stealing was done mostly by Mau-
rice Partain and Lindy Freeman. Partain
stole 35 bases while Lindy was credited with
When the Banner made selection for the
All-Nashville Team, four boys who had
played so well for the local combine were
selected on the team. Buck Pardue, Partain,
and Casey repeated again this year. Vir-
gil Nipper made the team for the first time.
The boys who composed the team do not
deserve all the credit because North had a
great coach, Hickman Duncan. He coached
the boys well., making them hustle in every
game. Because of this, they had a very suc-
