WHO CONTRIBUTED THEIR SHARE ( )n the morning of the opening day of school during the fall of 1938, 147 triumphant greeners mounted the steps that lead to the high school upstairs, filled and thrilled with anticipation and curiosity. One was heard to say, “Do you mean we really get to change classes?” And another, “What’s science like?” Soon, however, they were to learn and become accustomed to the new life after they were assigned to their classes. And under the guidance of Hensel Eckman, principal, and the home-room teachers, Richard T. Daugh- tery, Miss Frances Foster and Miss Crystal I " rye, they were, by the end of the first year, transformed into full-fledged high school students and consequently were ready to assume the responsibilities and dignities that become Sophomores. In 1 939, numbering only 97, the Class of ' 42 was no longer timid, but had the tendency to trip the extreme. They resolved to “turn the tables” and be sophisticated upper class- men. However, furthering their scholastic elforts, the Sophs soon forgot their self-im- portance and were ably urged on by the tutor- ing of E. G. Pruet, the new principal from Bama, Miss Lynnwood Kinder, Miss Mary Ann Sanderson, and Miss Mary Hays. They suddenly found themselves within the throes of Latin, history, biology, home economics and algebra and were truly becoming educat- ed. Seeing our advancing group, one of the largest in history, taking up Junior life at (he beginning of ’40, Mr. Pruet came to the real- ization that he would have to find some way to start the class off right. He introduced the formula, H. A. + H. A. Hays, Akers and Hardy and Arnold. We found things very little different ex- cept that the high school had been moved down stairs and there were several new faces among the faculty. We immediately had to settle down to work with the new subjects that confronted us, namely : chemistry, French, geometry, shorthand, and typing. Many of our members became prominent, holding im- portant positions in the Hi-Y, Student Coun- cil, Beta and various other clubs. At mid-term almost all of the 99 Juniors either jumped over, or climbed under the fence, to be only a term behind becoming Seniors. Now that the class was eligible, the ring question made its appearance and was soon settled, through the diplomacy of the ring committee, to the supposed satisfaction of all concerned. The Juniors were well represented in all the plays, programs and athletics. Bowser Haislip, Kenneth “Popeye” Farmer, Von Moody, Jack Scott and Buddy Kegley made the boys’ basketball squad; while Helen Jor- dan, Mary Ryan and Frances Adair were out- standing with the girls. Several others play- ed on the junior varsity team. After attending school into their eleventh year our members have begun to branch out with different talents and select their coming vocations. We are looking forward proudly to numbering among the graduating class of 1942 from dear old P. IT S.l
