As beyond the horizon sinks the sun, shining radiantly until the end and leaving an afterglow of reflected, softened hue, so the Class of ’47 will end its bright and victorious career; and as the sunset glow remains even after the sun disappears, so will the memory of the Class of '47 endure, silent but everlasting, past but not forgotten, dimmed by time, yet mellowed by years.
Amid the confusion of leave-taking and graduation, the members of our class may pause a moment and look back with calm satisfaction on four years of happy comradeship and work well done. The Class of ’47 has made history at Ramsay; its members have been the leaders, not only in athletics, but also in scholastic work; from its numbers, many were chosen to be on the outstanding varsity team—that team which defeated all opponents and won the coveted City Championship. Yet, as bright as is its brilliant record in athletics, is that established by its scholars; many of its members were tapped by the National Honor Society. We may be proud of the record made by this graduating class.
As we go out from these familiar halls, we will always hold dear the teaching and ideals of our Alma Mater. We extend our most sincere gratitude to those patient and untiring instructors who have helped us in a large measure to form our destinies.
To our many schoolmates we bid farewell. To the Class of '4S we say, “Take up our unsullied banner. We entrust to you the sacred honor and glory of the Senior Class. Raise up its standard, but never let it trail in the dust!”
Would you believe that we, two wiivniod radio news conirncntutors, would ever have felt ourselves as .strangers in Birmingham? However, in November 1957, after being in South America for several years representing the N.B.C., we have returned to our native town hardly believing our eyes. Tlvc appearance of the city has so changed that there are few Landmarks that we recognize. Climbing out of our helicopter this morning, we found ourselves on top of tire fifteen-story City Hull, where we were astonished to sec the completed magnificent civic center around Woodrow Wilson Park. After an udmiring glance at the many magnificent buildings, we strode towards a tall man wearing the uniform of a colonel of the United States Army. He looked somewhat familiar to us, and on approaching closer, we recognized our former sc!tool mate, Bayard Tyncs. How delighted we were to see each other. Immediately we began to talk about lla- inrml ers of Ramsay’s ‘47 graduating class. Biding down with us to the main lobby, he had time to inform us that Paul Andrrton is u successful lawyer. Much of his arguing ability, we are sure, was gained in Ills English VII class. Anne Cook, recently elected Judge of the Circuit Court, is hearing the case of the government against Josh Oden, head of tin United Brain Workers. Edwin Barker is giving a series of lectures at the municipal auditorium on How to Win Women and Influence Mothers-in-Law.” Roderick MacLeod has gained a splendid reputation as a scientist in the Igloo Scltool for Eskimos at Juneau, Alaska. Roy Summerville is also there teaching his own version of Spanish. Keith Bryant is an admiral in the Navy. He must have learned something in the Ramsay R.O.T.C. Jean Mc-Murry has just been promoted to a colonel in the VVACS. Her commanding officer, we hear, is Jim Ridout. When we readied the lobby, Bayard called our attention to the modernistic furnishings recently designed by Betty Levy, a famous decorator, and purchased from the city’s leading furniture store, Runnels and Stevens Company.
Going across the street we stopped at Triuntos and Erlien Drug Store” to buy a Birmingham Sews, now edited by Kenneth Allen. We found a bench in the park and proceeded to catch up on the local events. On the front page the headlines Jo Ann Hunter Campaigning To Be First Woman President attracted our attention. She has a splendid chance to be the Democratic nominee. A new discovery lias just been made in the field of science! Earl Usher, a famous surgeon, and Dr. Edith Quinn have discovered unotlier vitamin, hut Just what is its value is still unknown. Nurses Billie F. Walden and Jean Embry are their able assistants. Still interested in science, Mcrvin Barstein is now the head of Alabama's Research Institute. HU partner is none other than Crawford Nevins. Erwin Jones, successor to Einstein, has just perfected a new math formula. Murianne Cole is a diplomat to France, where her charm is winning many friendv for tlie United States government.
Turning the page, we found some interesting advertisements. Eddie Silver is running a used-cur lot. He takes old cars nod switching the parts around according to his own ideas, lie obtains excellent results. Eugene Norris owns u large dime store in Pratt City. Van Perkins’ tug boats on the Warrior carry coal to Mobile. For the latest fashions shop at Leindecker, Shannon and Thompson, Ine., on Fifth Avenue. An hour’s instruction at Nan Roberts and Jane Gould’s Dancing Academy will enable the most awkward one to trip on the light fantastic toe. Dick Bullock is running an escort bureau. A detective to find husbands for dissatisfied wives is conducted by Gardner Morrow. John Alexander is a skilled painter. He has just completed painting the yellow line down the Trans-Atlantic Bridge, built by Harold Crahum and George Gianoudis.
In the real estate section we read about Dorothy Jett’s development of a new subdivision at Lake Purdy. Two lovely matrons, the former Betty Amberson and Tura Pierce, have already moved to their attractive homes erected in this locality.How surprised we were to find many of our friends luve lx comt» authors. We saw a brief review of Cloriu Bennett's newly written book, “How Reudlieuds May Control Their Temper , which is a sellout. Jane Bliss has made a fortune on her best seller, “Hits With Men . On a Lyceum tour in South America are Betty Burger and Norris Friedman, famous poets. At last some one has appreciated Thad Holt's genius. He now writes a new “Encyclopedia Britan-nica’ every two years.
On turning to the sports page, we found F.d Huddleston awl Jack Fiorella are playing pro-basketbull for a new Birmingitam team. Dare-Devil Jerry Small has Just broken the world's speed record at Daytona Bcucb. Surely he acquired his skill in driving around Birmingham. Don McDougat has just won the World’s Championship Tennis Match. Dick Humphrey is the successor to Cluirles Atlas!
The Personal Note column revealed to us many facts about our former school mates. Patricia Woodard and Pat Foley are Power's Models in New York. Washington is all aflutter over Caroline Davis who Is Wulter Winclx-H's successor. Anotlier columnist, Jean Reynolds, has taken over Louela Parson's job- Charlotte Click (tlie modem Mury Mason) cares for all New York's kmely hearts. In a new series of “The Thin Man , Vincent Camaggio is starred. Tlx “Inner Sanctum has a new host—Hinton Howard! Patty Meighau, u famous torch singer. Is the attraction of the Continental H K nt. Suddenly we realized that we just had time to catch a performance of the Slocum and Mnrphrce Circus. Immediately discarding the newspaper, we caught a bus to tlx- Fair Crounds.
On arriving we found many familiar faces. Imagine our surprise when wo entered the tent at seeing Wynne Bras field, Barbara Brown, and Debora Levy, three renowned actresses, standing Ix-fore the lion cage. Playing in the hand were none other than Marion Smith, Lawrence Goldstein, and Patricia Nelson! As wc took our seals, we found ourselves surrounded by many of our friends. Ed Carpenter, lionise Rainey. Guy Hammond, uiwl Betty Hillhouse, all representing Jefferson County in tlx- State legislature, sat behind us. To the left we greeted Ann Smallman and Patsy Magrath, successful conductors of tours to Eumpcan countries. On tlx- right we were delighted to see Frances Bryan, Peggy Hunson, anti Jim Dow, new elected commissioners nf our city. Virginia Lee Bonds, Marjorie Denahurg, and Allyn Beasley, successful merchants, were chatting gaily with three popular insurance agents. Frances Giles, Georgia Flesser, aixl Dessie Costellos.
Not far from us we saw among the spectators Dixie Slate and Betty Fay Wertheimer, recently returned missionaries from India. Louise Brannon, who had lately married a millionaire, was sitting in her box and entertaining three prt-tty matrons, the former Patsy Wright, Marten Coleman, and Jane Taylor. Ann Saxton and Nancy Straub, Alabama’s recently elected Senators, were among tlx; late arrivals. They bad scats next to Peggy Franklin and Jane Hollingsworth, who have acquired a reputation for tlx-ir delicious candy sold from coast to coast.
As wc left the circus, a large sedan stopped before us, and we heard u familiar voice saying, “I shall be delighted to take two former classmates to town. Will you ride with me?”
Looking up, we recognized Betty Phillips and eagerly accepted her invitation. She enthusiastically told us how she had acquired many art masterpieces for tl»e new Birmingham Art Callery. Before we left her, we learned that Betty Capley and Sylvia Meer are her able assistants.
As wc bade one another farewell and separated to visit uur parents, we agreed that our time had been well spent. How happy wc were for catching a glimpse of so many members of the Class of '47.
—Frances Wehrenbekc and Charles McMvllin[

Coach ReynoldsThe season of 1946 was most successful; however some odd situations arose. Ramsay opened with a 0-6 loss despite an undefeated season. The Rams lost the boll on downs several times within the Woodlawn 10-yard line. In the last quarter, the team being off sides, Salem’s pass to Small on the 15-yard line was nullified. With time for only two plays Salem’s pass to Dow at the 4-yard line was all in vain as the last running play was stopped. Because of Daileys 78-yard run the game was seemingly won by Woodlawn, but later, as two of the Woodlawn players were declared ineligible, the game was given to Ramsay.
The next week Ramsay beat Sidney Lanier 40-0. Kimerling (2), Dow (2), Salem and Coe scored for Ramsay.
The following week found the Rams In Memphis for their first trip. After a scoreless first quarter, Ramsay scored twice in the second period and won 31-6. Salem (3), LaCamp, and Dow scored for Ramsay.
The next game was with Decatur. With a cold rain coming down throughout the game, Ramsay was ahead at the final whistle 25-0. The score was 0-0 at the hulf. Dow (2), Salem, and LaCamp scored for Ramsay.
Ramsay met West End at Legion Field in Birmingham the next week. Salem went over in the first peri«»d and LaCamp scored in the last to give Ramsay a 12-0 win. This was a big jump toward the Big Five Crown os West End had a heavy rough team. West End was the fourth straight undefeated team the Rums had met.
The next week proved the toughtest for the Rams the whole year. Ensley, with a perfect record, was favored to beat Ramsay. In the first hulf Ensley was stopped on the Ramsay 4-yard line, and again sire was stopped on the 15-yard line. Mid-way of the third quarter Rumsay started u drive on her own 25-yard line. Salem climaxed this drive by going over from the 1 yard line on u straight buck as 25,000 fans watched. This was all Ramsay needed as she won 6-0.
Bessemer was the next opponent. In this game Rumsay was a heavy favorite but won only by a score of 6-0. Salem played only a small part of the game. This and Ramsay's hard-earned victory over Ensley six days earlier held the score down somewhat. This was the only Ram drive of the game ulthough she had p sscssion of the ball on Bessemer’s 2-yard line when the game ended. Salem scored for Ramsay.
After a well-earned week of rest Ramsay met her emss-town rival—Phillips. This game occurred on another rainy night, but it didn’t lielp the Phillips’ cause as they k st 6-16. Salem and LaCamp went over for Ramsay. This gave the Rams their first undefeated season and tlie Big Five Crown since tire late 1930’s.
