Living in the Past. . .
Instead of moving forward in the
life line, lets go back. Picture your-
self going to Turner High School in
1942. Now, to do this, you will need
some background information on
Turner, the town, the country, and
At this time, the country was at
war. Times were hard, gas was
rationed, and most people did not
have cars. You had to walk to
school unless you went with the
only guy in school with a Chevy,
then you rode to school along with
10 others. Now that you have your
ride, you are on your way. Wait!
Where are you going? You missed
the street. Turner wasn't always at
1312 S. 55th St. At one time, Turner
High was the Turner Grade School
Well, you made it to school and
you are now awaiting the afternoon
bell. As soon as it rings you are
going to dash across the street to
the restaurant for your meeting.
This meeting will decide what date
homecoming will be.
R-I-N-N-N-G that was the bell,
you throw your books in and you
are on your way, Everyone is there
so you casually make your way to
the table and the meeting begins.
In no time at all it is decided to
have Homecoming on October 30.
As the weeks pass the excitement
mounts as plans grow into reality.
Girls are picking out formals, the
guys are ordering corsages made of
savings stamps. Decorations are
being put up in the basement, back
then they couldn't dance on the
gym floor because the administra'
tors were afraid it would ruin the
floor, The attendants for Queen ar
picked and so was the queen. Th
day of the big game you wear you
black and gold sweater to school
At one time Turner's colors wer
purple and gold instead of blac
and gold. The game that night wa.
a big one, the team was to pla
Washington Rural, Turner's bigges
rival at that time.
Now, back to the present. Ou
days at school are a lot differen
from then. First of all, 'almost n
one walks to school, and there are
lot more classes offered now. A
our Homecoming we have parades
balloons, and a dance in the gym
Turner has been through man
changes, but many would not hav
taken place if it hadn't been for th
