County, Texas, being of sound mind and memory, do hereby make

DALE, better known as nSnipeU, LANIER, wills his technique
with the girls, hoping that it might help, to that man-about-
town, James Roy Leach.
BILLY "playboy" TURNER leaves part of his height to Joe
Scott, hoping he will appreciate it.
GRANVILLE NEddie Cantoru HOTT gives his large, round, black
eyes to nDocn Wilson, with the thought that they might help UDocN
along with the girls. u
JEAN, who makes the boys look twice, WHEELER, leaves her
slow southern drawl to Chester Calhoun, who really does not need

GEORGIA MAE, who doesn't love but one soldier, MASTEN,
bequeathes this right and privilege to Gertrude Rauschuber.
ELLA RUTH, a real example of an Irishman, KENNEDY, with
pleasure,bequeathes her Irish temper to the meek and shy Louise

. cuss PROPHECY
---Jan. 1, 1960
This being the year 1960, I have decided to find out what
became of the 1945 Senior Class of Valley View High School.
---Jan. 2, 1960. When the doorbell rang today, I never once
thought it could be Charles Wilson. But there he stood, every
bit as surprised as I. He gave me a card which read: 'Charles
Wilson, Democratic Candidate for Governor of Texas ." From him
I learned the whereabouts of a few Seniors. Georgia Mae Hasten
is married to a bank president, and is living in Rogester, New
York. Roy Lee Belz is a football coach in Texas University,
and Leroy Belz is now married, but still serving in the Merchant
Marine as a Captain.
---Jan. 3, 1960. Today I passed by "Snipe's Photo Shop." The
name seemed familiar and sure enough, upon entering the shop
there was Dale Lanier. By talking to Dale, I learned that E. L.
Hancock has given up the Railway Compaxw. At this manent the
door opened and Ella Ruth Kennedy walked in. She was clad in
flying togs and had dropped in to remind Dale to tell his wife,
who is Ella Ruth's best flyer, that she would be unable to in-
struct her tomorrow.
-5-Jan. I., 1960. Today I saw Erlene Burke. She told me she
had married a Foreign Diplomat. Standing beside her was a small
girl--Er1ene's only child. I also learned from Erlene that
Ima Jean Mask is married to a band leader, and also has taken
the job of dancing instructor at the RKD Studios.
---Jan. 5, 1960. It was no surprise to me today to find that
Billy Turner has opened up his third night club in Juneau,
Alaska, as he always talked of going there. I also learned
that Polly Dean Highfill is singing at the new night club 'The
Gay Niners," in Dallas.
---Jan. 6, 1960. Today I received the Gainesville Legster.
The editorial was written about efficient law enforcenent.
This sounded like a conversation I once overheard by Granville
Hott and Virginia Owens. At the eni of the editorial was Vir-
ginia's name. .
---Jan. 7, 1960. I was glad to hear of the election of Gran-
ville Hott as District Attorney of Cooke County. Do you suppose
"Queenie's" influence helped?
---Jan. 8, 1960. Dorinda Hard has becane a ballet dancer, and
spends most of her time in Europe. This I learned from the
former Glessie Mae Coin who recently resigned as Dorimia's
press agent to marry a Brazilian coffee planter. Could it be
that Glessie forsees another coffee shortage?
---Jan. 9, 1960. I wish to take this opportunity of letting
the Senior Class know that I too have gained my life long
ambition. I am now working as a secretary for Alan Ladd.

EBGLES WIND UP FINE GRID YEAR
The Valley View Eagles concluded one of the most suc-
cesful grid seasons ever marked up by a team from our school,
going through the football season without a single loss.
The Eagles, coached by Walt McCord, held victories over
Sanger, Lewisville, Era, Alvord, Gainesville Cubs, and Denton
'Bn teams. Two ties marred a perfect record, deadlocks hav-
ing been played with Boyd and Frisco.
The Eagles chalked up this enviable record despite this
year's small squad and the fact that Valley View is the small
est school in the district.
This is the first time in Valley View's history that the
Eagles have gone through a season undefeated.

enviable record in athletics this season by winning two in- 4
vitational cage tournaments, its own cage meet, by defeating
Bonham, a Class AA school in the finals, and the Sanger meet
winning over Justin team which won that district title.
The Eagles, coached by Walt McCord, won 17 out of 19
games played and the two losses by only one point margins,
defeated two Class AA teams, including Gainesville. Roy Lee

The following excerpt from the Gainesville Daily
Register, edited in the nUncle Ezra Sports Columnn speaks for
HGuess we'll have to look at the Valley View cagers, the
way they're winning games this season. The Eagles copped the
Sanger invitational meet last weekend. And only the previous
week they won a meet staged on their own court. Coach McCord
must have some good athletes in our neighboring town. he
recall that his club had a fine football season, as well.U
