We, the Senior Class of 1953-1954, publish this Annual
hoping that it will bring back memories that we shared to-
gether at Almo High School. If this book brings back at
least one memory and is an inspiration to the succeeding
Seniors, We will feel that our Work was not in Vain. We
express our gratitude to the teachers, parents and students
that have assisted in our accomplishment.
The Senior Class proudly dedicates this Annual to Mrs.
Beurdean Wrather, the first grade teacher. Her patience
and -devotion, through all these years, have greatly in-
fluenced us, because she Was never too busy to aid us in
any possible Way. We take this opportunity to show our
appreciation, even though the dedication of this book can-
not fully express our admiration for her.

Senior Class Hisiorg
On the 25th of August, 1950, a new life for us started. On that
day we became' Freshmen, with our grade school hopes and dreams of
entering high school coming true. There were thirty-three enrolled in our
class. Our class officers were as follows: President, Dan Cain, Vice Presi-
dent, Allie Mae Vance, Secretary and Treasurer, June Hale, Reporter,
Doris Graham. Mrs. Margaret McRee was chosen as our sponsor. Our
attendant to the Basketball Queen wa s Doris Graham. We were represent-
ed on the ball team by Jackie Geurin, Graves Morris, J. C. Barnett, Junior
Calson, Rudy Lovett, Dan Cain, Marvin McDaniel, Walter Schroader,
Leroy Todd, Jimmy Haley and Garry Lee Wicker.
At the beginning of our Silly Sophomore year we were honored to
have Estherlee Harkleroad join our class. Jr. Garrison was the only one
not to return. Sue Russell dropped out of school during the last six weeks
of the first semester. We chose Mrs. Don Howell as our sponsor. We
were honored to have June Hale, one of our classmates, elected cheer-
leader. Graves Morris, Marvin McDaniel, Jackie Geurin, Leroy Todd and
Dan Cain represented us in basketball. Our class- officers were: Presi-
dent, Dwain Herndon, Vice President, Sue Russell, Secretary, June Hale,
Treasurer, Ray Junior Henderson. l
We started our Jolly Junior year by choosing lVlr. Milton Walston
as our sponsor. We were sorry to lose the following students: Rudy
Lovett, Esterlee Harkleroad, Norma Boswell, Norma Thorn, Anna Lou
McKinney and Katie Compton. During our Christmas holidays one of our
classmates, Frankie Miller, was married. We were very happy to have
her husband, Blondie McClure, join our class. We were represented on
the ball club by Marvin McDaniel, Jackie Geurin, Graves Morris and Dan
Cain. We were honored to have June Hale elected cheerleader from our
class. Our class officers were: President, Dan Cain, Vice President, Katie
Compton, Secretary, June Hale, Treasurer, Doris Graham., Reporter, Faye
Oldham, and Watch Dog, Joel Jackson.
The day we have looked forward to is now at hand with twenty en-
rolled. One of our classmates, Faye Oldham, married Bobby Lockhart, a
former student, during the Christmas holidays. We were honored to
have Ann Ross, from Hardin, to join our class at the beginning of the
We chose our class officers as follows: President, Dan Cain, Vice
President, Dwain Henderson, Secretary, Doris Graham, Treasurer, Allie
Mae Vance, and Reporter, Ann Ross. The boys who participated in
basketball from the Senior Class were: Graves Morris and Marvin Mc-
Daniel. We were glad to have June Hale elected cheerleader from our
class. The sponsor for our Senior year is Mr. Bill Miller.
It is the year 1980. Ray Junior, Gus and I, Blondie,
are traveling through the Sahara Desert searching for lost
Pyramids. We have been without food or water for hours
and the sun is beaming down on us. We can feel our bodies
becoming weak and our minds weary. Finally we can go no
further, we sit down to rest. Gus and Ray have blacked
out. In my mind I see things out of the past. I remember
meeting my former classmates as we were traveling over
the U.S.A. on our way to the desert.
Much to our surprise we found Walter Schroader, who
is now manager of Calumet Farm, the largest in Kentucky,
and is now training his famous race horse, "Spit Fire", for
the Kentucky Derby.
As we travel to Nevada we go into a doughnut shop
there and we meet two more classmates, Wilda Moody and
Nancy Lee. They are perfecting a holeless doughnut for
people who want to get their money's worth.
We leave the doughnut shop and we see a sign reading,
"Fortunes Told By Madam Hale". We find that it is none
other than our classmate, June Hale. June tells us that
another classmate, Dee Bogard, has married and is living
with her husband and four children in Dexter, Kentucky.
We move over to Texas to take in the Texas State
Rodeo and who did we see first, but Joel "Tex" Jackson, on
"Blue Flash". He is competing for the cowboy champion-
ship of the world.
As we travel through Colorado we meet our former
classmate, Dan Cain, in Denver. We find that he is the
owner of "Cain's Cadillac Sales", which is the largest
Cadillac Agency in the world. He told us he has just got
the contract to deliver the new Cadillac for the President
of the U.S. at the White House.
Dan tells us our old classmate, Faye Oldham, has just
received her R.N. from Belleview Hospital in New York.
She is in New York while her husband is in the Army.
Then we move over to California. There we stopped
at a restaurant in Santa Monica to have lunch. Who should
be the owner but Marjorie McCuiston, who is operating the
restaurant until her husband returns from the Air Force,
then they will go back to Kentucky and farm.
We traveled to the coast where we met my old friend,
J. C. Barnett and his lovely Wife, the former Doris Graham.
J. C. is now owner of "Salt City Fishing Fleet" largest fish-
ing fleet in the world. Doris is now President of the ex-
clusive "Salt City" Ladies Club.
We came to Los Angeles and as we looked through the
Los Angeles Times we happened to notice that the editor
is none other than Dwain Herndon. He has been the editor
of that paper for the last five years.
We find his star reporter, Ann Ross, is now enroute to
Paris to meet With a famous Paris designer, Allie Mae
Vance, who will furnish Ann with a report on women's
fashions for the coming year.
A loud noise fills my ears, everything grows dim, and
suddenly I feel myself being pulled back to earth. I find
myself sitting in my own living room with my old pals Gus
and Ray Junior, sound asleep over a game of poker. I wake
them up quickly and we hide the poker cards because my
wife, Frankie, and our twin boys have returned from
Senior Class Will

To the Sophomores we leave our kiddish ways, giggling jokes and
other things we don't need to carry with us.

Class Paem of '53-'54
Soon the flowers will be in bloom,
And the song birds sing a merry tune.
To our minds comes a special date,
For we, the Seniors, will graduate.
As Freshmen we were full of fun,
When Mr. Miller appeared we wanted to run.
We tried to act big, as though we were grown,
We probably acted like babies at home.
But our Sophomore year found us bold,
We thought we were very wise and very old.
Although we were full of fun and told a few jokes
After all we acted like dignified folks.
Our Junior year we were very jolly,
And we looked back at our past follies.
There was that Algebra we almost flunked,
And to us English was a lot of bunk.
We have struggled for four long years,
Through labor, happiness, sorrow and tears.
And at last we have finished our deed,
From dear old high school we are freed.
We soon will enter upon the road of life alone.
Some of us will travel far from home,
But in our hearts are written these words,
"Getum Warriors, scalp them birds."

The Almo Warriors sounded al
loud war hoop after they got the,
ball rolling in Friday night's vic-l
tory against the Lynn Grove
Wildcats. Coach Bill Miller is
building a Warrior squad of play-
ers in which he has only six boys
left from last year's team.
Almo, playing on their own
