f was as S N4 rx. I Z' " '?'C""-fe-'irE"f'ff:3AX l. f f I ., x F' r sf1"'r'f"' .5 J H-Nglfl' - if VP ,Mafory One warm autumn morning in 1942 there as- sembled inthe grammar school building a group of young boys and girls which included: Jonnie M, Harris, Martha A, Sheffield, Jimmy Watson, Shirley Wicker, Bobbie J. Dean, Jean Pelham, Dorthy S, Pope, John Wright, Larry Newton, Katie Pippins, and Luverne Knight. The former Miss Opal Garner and Miss Ber- nice Tomberlin were the unfortunate, but very cap- able teachers who had to train "'Mama's Babies, " After this group had calmed down enough to enter the second grade under the tutelage of Miss Maude Hughes and Mrs. D. D. Stephens, they were joined by Kathryn Kelly from Fadette, Nina Thomp- son from Hartford, and Don Watson from Midland City. As third graders, we were really on the road to learning with Mrs, Burnell Rayburn and Miss Louise Justice fnow Mrs. Moody Willifordj as our teachers, We really worked hard that year. Patricia Bailey was Homecoming Princess and all members of our class were admitted to the ballgame free that afternoon. Larry Newton from Birmingham, Katie Pippins returning after one year at Fadette, and Robert Smith were the new additions to our class in the fourth grade. Mrs. Annie Lois Wiggins and Mrs. Burnell Rayburn Clater replaced by Mrs. Sybil Sellersy managed us well through many trying experiences. Miss Celeste Foster and Mrs. Pitt McArthur were our fifth grade teachers. Our roll was then increased with Marjorie Hughes from Malvern, Sherryl Caraway from Hartford, Beth Hyman from Grandridge, Florida, and Paul Gray from Bums. As sixth graders we thought we knew everything! Mrs, Blennie Underwood and Mrs. Bernice Hornsby put us straight on things, though. Eleanor Hinson came to join us from Ashford and Maylon Eldridge from Burns, We'l1 always remember our graduation day when we were all dressed up to receive our diplomas, having finished half of our high school education. As Jr. 1's in the high school building we felt important until some big senior would nearly trample us under foot. Miss Celeste Foster and Mrs. Robert Friedrich helped us get used to changing classes. A big addition to our class was Sue Thomas from Dothan. Ann Brown from Tate joined us at mid-term, and Bibb Graves brought big laughs from Malvern. Patsy Peel from Malvern and Freddie Bush from Troy were the new faces that appeared in the eighth grade rooms of Miss Norma Foster and Mrs. Flora Dalton. A As freshmen we were becoming young ladies and gentlemen. Mr. Joe E. Sellers and Coach David Snell really made us work but it wasn't in vain, be- causbve accomplished much. We fought hard that year to beat the seniors in order to have Patricia Bailey elected Homecoming Queen. To join us was Mary Lou Enfinger from Malvern. , .09 As we entered our Sr. I year. there came many new personalities who have helped give our class a , high scholastic average, From Malvern came Billy I. Merritt, Loyd Stone, Luther Hall, and Evelyn Bedsoe. Hilda Moss, Doris Culverhouse, Bobbie Miller, Royce Vickers, Nancy Carroll, and Jo Farmer made a grand entrance from Tate Junior High School. Fadette was well represented in our class by Billy Arnold, Raymond Register, Shelby J , Bass, David Baxley, Sarah Boyette, Ann Singletary, Ann Kirkland, S. W. Kirkland, and Gene Keelg Jean Pelham returned to us after two years at Fadette, Harrell Elmore entered our class from Chipley, Florida: Betty Holland from Newton, Jerome Chancy from Ozark. Mrs. Amerine Griffith and Coach Waylon Dubose were our well-liked tenth grade sponsors. Honors began to come our way when Bobbie J. Dean became Hallowe'en Queen and Patsy Peel. Jonnie M. Harris, and Larry Newton were chosen for "Who's Who." Patsy Peel, Jonnie M. Harris, and Martha A. Sheffield were elected cheerleaders. The eleventh grade and time was running out, but we were making the best of it. Again we were back with Miss Celeste Foster and for the first time with Mrs. Sara Mac Buttram---a pair of very versatile teachers. With Mrs. Buttram's most capable help we presented our Junior Play, "The Ghost House." Miss Foster led us in preparing one of the most beautiful Junior-Senior Banquets ever at Slocomb High. The theme we followed was an underwater paradise. Earl Smith from Columbus, Georgia, was a new student in our class. We were right in the midst of all the activities that year. Marjorie Hughes was Hallowe'en Queen: Patsy Peel, Jonnie M. l-larris, and Martha A. Sheffield were cheerleaders: Patricia Bailey was Homecoming Maid: Yvonne Kelly, Martha A. Sheffield, Gene Keel, Patricia Bailey, Larry Newton, and Patsy Peel, were included in "Who's Who." Out of our room came some of Slocomb's star football players of whom we were mighty proud. Dignified seniors at lastl We have come far to- gether and have learned to love each other dearly. We entered the senior room as a group to end our high school education under the guidance of the very much loved and admired Mrs. Ida Bell Phinney. Many honors came our way the last year with seven- teen seniors receiving recognition in "Who's Who. " They were Bobbie Dean, Margie Forehand, Mary Lou Enfinger, Patsy Peel, James Bass, Raymond Register. S. W. Kirkland, Sue Thomas, Larry Newton, Doris Culverhouse, Billy I. Merritt, Pat- ricia Bailey, Bibb Graves, Don Watson. and Ann Brown. As Seniors we engaged in many more activities: candy selling. class nip. senior pictures, class rings, Senior Play. Junior-Senior Banquet in our honor, and many other functions that will hold a dear place in our hearts through the years. Signed: Patricia Bailey, Historian
