Away back in 1944 our small insignificant class appeared at the doors of Ramsay. We studied diligently and tried to learn and to increase our knowledge. Combined with our studies, we boys and girls shared daily our happiness and sorrows with one another.
Little did we know in our freshman year that many of us would achieve great honors before graduation. Not only producing one of Ramsay's finest presidents of the Student Body, we also gave Ramsay an excellent vice-president and president of the Honor Society, a champion tennis player, a district Red Cross representative, and a school photographer. These goals were attained as we hope our ambitions in life will be.
Out of the varied experiences of our school life, we seniors carry nothing but pleasant memories of our association with the principals and the teachers, and we leave behind us sincere wishes for the future prosperity and happiness of our Alma Mater.

As we came near the City Hall, I saw the Pan American Building and discovered from the cornerstone that it was erected in 1953 by Myron Rosenthal, chief construction engineer. Curious to see Myron’s masterpiece, we stopped long enough to enter the building for a quick survey. On the Bulletin Board just inside the door we saw the name of our old friend D. O. L., Buddy Schul-hafer, who is now lecturing on “The Advantages and Disadvantages of Love Throughout the World.” Walking along the spacious corridors was none other than Alabama’s new Secretary of Agriculture, Mary Lizabeth Patterson. After chatting with her, we took a look into the new International Library, where behind a pile of fashion books was Leonard Reid, the successor to the popular designer, Pierre of Paris.
On leaving the building we climbed into a taxi and to our amazement we recognized the driver to be Jane Anderson, who owns the cab company, but lends a helping hand when the firm is short on drivers.
Later that evening, we went to the theater where we saw the popular full length cartoon movie, “Malicious Malkove,’’ caricatured by Bobby Box, the sensational Walt Disney of the South.
Then as usual, our weakness for night clubs brought us to the fashionable "Krackling Kombread Klub” owned and operated by Happy John Routman. The entertainment, unusually good, was featuring the charming Catherine Kulp in her plasti-balloon dance, named for the old fad of blowing plastic balloons which was popular when we went to high school. Seated immediately behind us were Doris Weinstein and Mary King, top radio and motion picture critics.
Amid the noisy tinkling glasses, laughter, and music of Back Beat Binford and his Sensational Seven arose the cry—“Call for Constantine Morris!” But more startling than that was seeing Earlene Warren at the piano. When we saw across the room Robbie Ann Duncan, we immediately went over to her table to be introduced to her prosperous looking husband. During our brief talk we learned that Mary Haynes is now the toast of Broadway. Polly Elder is the head of Birmingham’s new modernistic library, the largest in the South. The brightest star of the Hollywood sound stage is Marjorie Alice “Helen” Hayes. Vickie Saia and Gene Huffham are co-owners of Gay Fifty-eight Dress Show.
After finishing our “Passionola Bomber,” (strong spirits of lemon juice and ice), we bade one another farewell. Then I hurried to my hotel to complete my article and write to you.
Sincerely yours, Marvin Hurvich
