SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
N 'O . . .
X Ng As Tuppy unwinds the scroll containing
X the 1949 class history, he chuckles to himself
A 1 X . . . . .
N : at the past antics of these dignified seniors.
X Q He discovers that-
In the privacy of Miss Verda's playhouse,
Bobby Prather gave Gene Still Kirk her first
hx 1 Rl At the same time Norman Bennett's favo-
X I.-f-' rite diversion was dancing "Ten Little Indians"
round 'n round the piano.
Two musicals stand out in Primary School memories: The third grade extravaganza
included many flowers and birds, among whom were Evelyn Newman, a calla lily, and
Davis Earl Nash, a robing the second production was "Showboat" with dancing stars
Mary Ann Smith and Doris Eason.
Those horrible fourth grade arithmetic drills made Jimmy Simms shudder at the
very mention of math, and no one could forget the fifth grade picnics on hospital hill,
especially the one when the mules chased everybody up into trees.
The class's first attempt at journalism resulted in "The Seventh Grade Times" spiced
with Martha McGaughy's "poetry" such as:
In the hot summer time
What keeps us on the job?
Why, the refreshing romance
Of Shelia and Bob!
The ninth grade found this illustrious class, struggling with their first taste of la-
boratory science and feeling like first-class plutocrats at being the oldest and most import-
ant people in the junior High building.
This superiority was shattered when they entered the Senior High School as lowly
sophomores, creeping into the study hall, frightened by the stares of those oh-so-old
upperclassmen. One tenth grader, however, more daring than the rest, repeatedly made off
with Mrs. Burney's prized possession-the famous, tinkling bell. And who was this cour-
ageous fellow ?--Earl Moody!
,Www , , A. pnvluqssl li
"Money is the root of all banquets" was the junior battlecry as they searched their
brains for bright ideas, sponsored dances, and donned greasepaint for the immortal jun-
ior play. Many sacrifices were made for the pleasure of the Seniors: Jerry Biggers became
hoarse screaming "Where's Laurie?"g Mary Armstrong penned banquet fortunes in her
sleepg Allen Stewart lost face with the reading of the prophecy.
September, 1948, and the last lap of the school journey began. These Seniors were
trying hard to make this, their last year, the best. Howard Stephens and his football
playing brought glory to T. H. S.g the HI-TIMES with Nona Ewing as Editor moved
into the ranks of a first-class newspaperg those long-awaited exemptions finally rolled
around-at least to a lucky few.
The last days in Tupelo High were filled with memorable events. "Tonight We
Dance," the Senior play, was an entertainment long to be remembered by both the
actors and the audience.
Then in rapid succession came the baccalaureate sermon and the final achievement-
graduation. To the familiar strains of "Pomp and Circumstancen the class of 1949,
diplomas clutched tightly in their hands, moved slowly from the auditorium, leaving
behind them twelve happy years.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
Time: Few years from present
Occasion: Reunion of class of '49
Place: Any place where class reunions are
Here we are, back with all the old gang, of the class of '49. Let's look around and
try to see just what has taken place in ten years. Wait a minute before we start-Young
fellow, what are you doing here? Aren't you kind of young for an occasion like this?
Oh, you're here with your mother and daddy. That couldn't be Gene Still and Bennett,
Now to look around-Who in the world is that good-looking creature? Of course,
Patsy "Powers Model" Johnson and there's the famous chemist Ann Powell. Her career
got its beginning back in those memorable chemistry classes. To our right you see several
couples looking pleasantly married and happy. None other than Halovee and Bobby
Parker, Betty jean and Eddie Cayson, and Sara and Bobby Whitten, and just look at
Shelia in that gingham dress fMac must have just ordered it from Sears for herj and
Charles Berry in his overalls, from Reubel's, of course. That's what farm life will do
for you! Well, we're awfully glad "Flawe" Langston made it. She's pretty busy at the
Stork Club in New York. Speaking of the entertainment world, Kay Clayton, Jeanine
Edwards, jean Witcher, and Betty Jo Ballard are still on Broadway doing that same
spectacular ballet they did in the Senior play.
Why hello Coach Phillips QGary's basketball team is winning renown over the
nationj. Mary Ann Roper's team is doing O. K. too. Smile please! There's Lambert and
Clayton, famous photographers taking pictures of this outstanding group. Did you know
there are some famous writers here, too. Mary Armstrong, poet, Milford Kelly and Gene
Cryder, co-authors of that book "One Thousand Complicated Lessons on Texas Schottis-
che" and Nancy Bruton, author of that talked about novel, "How to Love with Your
Glasses On." fThere's a rumor that this book is dedicated to Miss Mary Eleanor Long.j
,Everybody stand! There's Governor Posey with all his pretty secretaries, Pearl Markham,
jessie Lee jackson, and Margaret Carruth. Of course his right hand man, Gene Callo-
way-is sitting-why, at his right fof course!j Sitting directly across from the governor
is "Sluggo," owner of Finley's pool hall, and all his rack boys, Bobby jo Cook, Mac
Thomas, Charles Kellett and Charles McBride.
He is pleading his case to the governor for minors to be allowed to enter banded
pool halls. At the same time lawyers Tommy DeWitte and Bob Weaver are putting in
their two cents for the repeal of prohibition. Listening eagerly to these outstanding
lawyers are Judy Walters and Eloise Williams, trying to pick up a few pointers to take
These politics are too deep, let's look to the brighter side. At the next table is zoo-
keeper jimmy Perabo and his monkey-trainer, Earl Moody, who are getting acquainted
with the "Toni twins," Martha McGaughy and Katherine Maxey. Near by is a member
of the "higher ups," aerialist Betty jo McCarley who is seriously considering a position
just offered by Mary Alice Barnes, business agent for the Barnes Sisters Circus Qin case
you're curious, all the brothers were eaten up by lions.j Mary Alice features the finest
of entertainers, including Billy Swift, known as ujughead-the jugglerf'
Busily looking about the room for possible talent is the distinguished Robert Prather,
owner of the string of Malco theaters. Some celebrities employed regularly by Mr.
Prather are Miriam Stacy and Curley Stephens, of the famous vaudeville act, Reba
Sprouse and Roy Wascomb fwho will probably receive offers from the "Met" soon J.
Bobby Camp Wilson with his "singing guitar," and that famous stand-in for Laur-
en Bacall, Ann Gilpin. Un case you're wondering where jerry Biggers is-he's home,
tending to the kids.j
Unable to be present tonight are Tom Joyner and "Nephew" Stewart, who are busy
trying to combine matches and cigarettes to carry out the slogan, "Lucky Strikes every
time." We hear that Nona Ewing, concert pianist, is called in often for her expert advice.
Also missing from this gala occasion is Reverend Harry London, drummer Paul Wald-
en and songtress Sara Alice Renshaw, who were detained by previous business with the
But among those who are very much present and enjoying themselves are nurses
Ruby Faye Roberts and Martha Woods, the two women in dentist William Moore's life.
That is, besides his little wife, the former Carolyn Waters, who is still as pretty as
ever. And there's the mayor, Clark Strain, busily discussing the affairs of the -day
with his steady girl friend, jane Reed. It is rumored that when the two are married
an old flame of the bride's, Charles Ballard, will be the best man. Wait! Who is that
running out with his little black bag? A doctor going to save a life? No! It's plumber
Davis E. Nash on another mission of mercy.
What's going to happen next? Now banker john Ray Beasley is crawling around
under the tables. fBut, after all, a man's teeth are pretty necessary at a banquet.j
Royce Barnes must really have some charm, or could it be that Ruby Barnes and
Dorothy Bedford giving him those adoring looks because of his invention, that jet-
propelled auto? There's the judge for the Miss America contest, john DiGillio. The
finalists have been narrowed down to three Tupelo girls, Edna McCullough, juanita
Dickerson, Louise Cannon, and Mary Ann Smith. No insinuations, but Mary Ann's a
sure thing-right, john?
Carolyn Cooper and Doris Eason are the life of the party, as always. Right now
they're rendering their own interpretation of, "We Still Call Everybody Darling."
Well, Robert McDonald, local telegraph messenger, just rode in on his tricycle with
a bunch of telegrams for movie star Winnie Davis, the French version of Carmen Mir-
Well, there's jane Kelly listening to all that Bruce Flanagan has to say about his
adventures as Forest Ranger. But Bobbye Franks is paying no attention to the handsome
ranger's tales, 'cause that husband of hers who owns the big plantation near Planters-
ville is violently jealous! And who do you suppose holds the promising position of plow-
boy on the plantation-Yep, Decy! CHe's at last given up his political career.j
Evelyn Newman, who recently came out with the meaty best-seller, "Forever Amy,"
is getting some information for a new book from Marion Oller, head nurse at the
hospital. Marion tells her that jean Guthrie and jean Huffman, who are on her staff,
will be interesting material to write about. Another interesting subject might be the story
of that dynamic love affair of Doris Gunner and Bobby Beggs, check on that, Ev.
There's Bill jackson, who teaches Calculus at the University of Colorado. Well,
surprising things do happen! Professor tells us that Virginia Franklin is one of his
most promising pupils. Looking as stylish as ever are the owners of the "We Do The
Impossible" Beauty Shop, jean Cathcart and Louise Campbell. Charles Moore is their
hair stylist and uses as his motto, "When Ifix'em, they stay fixed." He has just dyed the
hair of Mary Frances Vinson, local debutante, bright green. It is rumored that jean Jones
is suing Charles because the stripes of her dye job have run together. Frank Robinson
will represent her case to district attorney Robert Gibson. Speaking of scandals-just
listen to jewel expert Sue Ramsey tell Katherine Hinds that her necklace is a fake.
"Wiggles" declares that it is a gift from Bill Parnell, who got it while on his latest
hunting expedition in Africa.
And what is this touching scene? Charles Pyle, All-American football player, is
giving his gold football to Donna Sue Hodges. Oh! Oh! Lulu Grantham, owner of
the Coca-Cola Bottling Company, seems to be becoming quite angry with Bobbie
Long and Bonnie Kennedy because they are trying to drown their love troubles in
Pepsi-Cola, of all things!
You know this class of '49 has done O. K. for itself. Why, besides these famous
personages already mentioned, we saw some names of the old gang in the paper this
morning. jimmy Sims and his adorable wife and laboratory partner, Emma jane Holmes,
are patterning their lives after the Curies, in a vain effort to discover a cure for old
age. Janice Paden has just finished a successful campaign for first woman governor
of North Dakota. On the front page we saw, with disappointment, that Peggy Wade has
just returned from her seventh unsuccessful attempt to discover the West Pole. And
have you noticed the advertisement for the opening of the "M-M Roller Rink," under
the sober management of Pat Murff and Lillian Montgomery. The social columns are all
talking of Homer Osburn's summer tour on a banana boat. I-le took with him his two
fiances, Norma Faye Estes and Betty Jo Kitchen.
Well it's time for the Banquet to be over. How time does pass. Goodbye everybody.
--What's this? Hugh Sharpe, the famous interior decorator is still here. Sharpe clon't you
think it's about time to stop talking to that empty chair and go home? See you at the
next reunion of the Class of '49!
