CLASS HISTORY MOUSE TRACKS Hello there I m the luttle mouse that you ve seen runnung thru thus annual You ll see a lot more of me too I ve stopped here lust long enough to tell you a Iuttle but about the Senuor class of 53 Yes, they are almost there Where? Why, graduatuon of course To some of them ut may seem good but to others a Iuttle sad I ve been wuth them ever sunce theur furst day of school My they felt bug and how they loved Mrs Knught and Muss Lee Theur next fuve years at Low school were uneventful They went every day and enloyed ut Some of the favorite teachers were Muss Sledge, Muss Long and Mrs Muzelle Why rught now I can see Muss Kumel comung down the hall wuth her luttle putch pupe un her hand Durung the eughth grade, they were louned by some students that have meant much to them that South Conetoe trube Theur Junuor Hugh days were fun, but they certaunly dudn t dream of what lay ahead of them Then came theur furst day of hugh school Wonder how many dud get lost? Why I remember two gurls whodudn'teven get to the rught homeroom to start wuth It wasn t long tho before they were lust at home as any of theur upperclassmen Pat was chosen class presudent that furst year Connue and Earl were marshals from the class Remember Johnny Kent presudent of the Sophomore class but how could anyone forget hum? When he had to leave Ken dud a swell 'ob of takung over Roy and Peggy V represented us as marshals When the Hallowe en Camuval came along, the class made lust heaps of money under the guudance of Mrs Morse and Mrs Blackbum Theur Junuor year was a year of moneymakung They had a lot to work for and to look forward to Furst of all they chose Roy as theur was the dance after the football games Remember the musuc that they had, or trued to have after the furst two games? They pulled through tho and were very successful I sneaked In on a Beta Club meet ung and found that eughteen out of the class would be eluguble The next venture was the annual stunt nught Then came Growung Pauns member Ma and Pa Mclntyre and theur brats George and Terry? The whole cast dud an excellent 'ob under Mrs Butler s durectuon Then ut came The long awauted' Yes theur Jr Sr Everyone worked hard but as each one had a specual 'ob everythung worked out very smoothly The theme was the famous Mardr Gras Red and whute were the predomu natung colors The grade mothers Mrs Vause, Mrs Elmore Mrs DeLoatch, and Mrs Sanders pre pared a wonderful meal and were successful un carryung out the color scheme on the plates Everyone hada bug tume durung the banquet tossun serpentune un everyone else s plate I surely had a good tume afterwards helpung them clean up the plates After the banquet everyone danced to the musuc of Bob Lee s orchestra from E C C Mrs Irby was a wonderful person to work wuth and she was unstrumental un makung the Jr Sr as successful as ut was Peggy V and Anderson were the marshals wuth Roy as the chuef marshal My, then came that let-down feelung The thungs that they had looked forward to for so long were at an end They knew that as they would be doung thungs un theur Senuor year, ut would be for the last time They started out on the rught foot tho Thefurst thung they dud was to agaun elect Roy presudent Then came theall umportant annual staff, and a hard worker was chosen un the person of Maude John son as edutor un-chuef Of course, I can t tell you anythung about theur Senuor year tull ut happens so Come on wuth me now, and I'II show you the rest of the annual HISTORIAN Jul ua Sanders I ' I ' ' I , . , . . . . , . n . . 0 .
