We had our Sophomore class party in Shelbyville. We de-
parted for the summer looking forward to a very prosperous
In September of '53, we came back to Webb as upper-
classmen. Yes, we were Juniors, and very proud--maybe a
little bit too proud, but we looked forward to a grand year.
Our class was again the largest class in school. Though we
lost Ronnie Holmes, Bob Watson, Jack Banks, Mike Robison,
Jim Moore, Jim Jarvis, Weldon Oliver, and Ted Duncan, we
didn't suffer too much in this great loss. For we found we
had gained such outstanding members as Page Faulk, Clark
Becker, Warren Patterson, Jim Dillard, Cullpepper Exum,
Easton Lebo, Douglas West, Frank Smith, Park Miller, and
Gunter Smith. Although our number grew larger, we had a
large turnover in the class before the year was completed, and
we lost Mike Moss, Ab Taylor, Peter Scales, Linton Vandiver,
and Gene Hirsch.
We began the year by electing as ofricersz Lewis Holmes,
Presidentg Owen Hendley, Vice-Presidentq Albert Frierson, Sec-
retaryg and Linton Vandiver, Marshal. For our representative
on the Honor Committee, we elected Bobby Gilliam, Bobby
Crichlow, and Gene Hirsch.
Our class had always seemed to take an active part in every
event of scholastics and athletics, but this year we began
taking even bigger interests. We began to shoulder responsi-
bility and realized we had a few sore spots to work out. But
we also realized what a challenge it was: Consequently we
didn't always succeed, but we worked hard.
In sports, we started off very well. Football was first on
schedule, wherein we established an unusual record by beat-
ing the Seniors twice, tieing them once, and losing to them
only once. Such players as Warren Patterson, Albert Frierson,
Peter Scales, Ab Taylor, Bobby Crichlow, Gene Hirsch, and
Owen Hendley excelled in the game. fconunwd on page 641

Our Erst year we proved to be most outstanding in the
Field of sports. We had Ed Mann, Albert Frierson, Ted Dun-
can, and Peter Scales representing the class in football.
Almost everyone turned out for baseball, and Dan Smith
and Ed Mann were elected captains of the Freshman teams.
Ronnie Holmes, Ted Duncan, and Bob Hopkins also proved
to be valuable as the season progressed.
In track, the Freshman class produced such stars as Ronnie
Holmes, high jumper, and Bob Hopkins, runner.
On the annual Stunt Night the Freshman class contributed
by giving a skit entitled, "The Operation."
At Mid-term we lost Fred Belk and Wesley Clark, but we
gained Webber Hall and Arthur Fort, leaving the total num-
ber 25, which it is now, at the time of graduation.

This year we had the largest class in school, and again we
started off by participating heavily in football. We met the
challenge of basketball, with certain enthusiasm. In A League
we had Ronnie Holmes, Peter Scales, and Bob Crichlow. The
Sophomore class constituted the greater part of B League, with
such competent players as Ab Taylor, Walter Graham, Bobby
Gilliam, Owen I-Iendley, and Ralph Braund.
In baseball we also participated heavily. We had Roy
Ellzcy and Ted Duncan as representatives in A League, with
B League flooded with such players as Bob Gilliam, Albert
Frierson, Peter Scales, Bob Crichlow, Bard Rudder, Peter clev-
erie, Walter Graham, and Mike Robison.
This year, since our number was so large, we made up a
large part of the debating societies. In the Platonic Society,
all three Mid-term debaters were Sophomores, those being Albert
