BLUNT HIGH SCHOOL
Editor 11'l ch1ef
Supt M G Roach
We the Senior Class of 1947 do hereby dedlcate th1s
annual as the last and perhaps greatest work of our H1gh
TO OUR PARENTS for the help they have g1ven us to make
E past four years rate high among our most chenshed mem
ones and for the generoslty and kmdness d1splayed 1n so many
events where only they could fill the crevlce
TO OUR TEACHERS. for the tolerance they have shown to each
d every student and for impartmg to us vast knowledge that
may help to move the 1mpediments that w1ll undoubtedly obstruct
our way as we move forever onward 1Il the paths that we our
selves blaze through the Wilderness of the world
TO THE COMMUNITY for the backmg we rece1ved 111 all school
ents and for the 1IldlV1d'll8.1 help of those whose serv1ces
were relled upon by the members of Blunt H1gh as a united body
For the loyalty shown by those who d1dn't have a Chlld ln school
but Wanted the others to have the opoortun1t1es and the mater1al
thmgs that they would have striven to give the1r ch1ldren
W1th th1s dedication We sincerely hope that We have placed
1Il the mmds of our readers the deep and heart felt appreclatlon
that we treasure. They have helped us through our high school
days and We'll not let them down in the future.

bENIOR CLASS PROPHELY
The members of the class of 1947 have been very much mterested m
psychology many of them havmg taken profound courses 1n such awe
1n p1r1ng phases of the subject as psychoanalys1s and psych1atry Nat
urally the y got all wrought up about their repress1ons and complexes
defense mechan1sms and rat1onal1zat1ons
When the world renowned psych1atr1st professor Abdullah Freud
son Br1ll1ng came to town and opened a consultmg room for the ment
ally unfit and the 1ntellectually unsettled all these earnest students rush
ed to see h1m
And now comes the exc1t1ng part of my story Last mght I too had
occasion to enter professor Abdullah s off1ce Not because of any mental
We3kl'16SS merely to collect the rent The Professor wasn t U1 and to
k1ll time I read some of h1s very dry magazmes I began to look for some
more 1nterest1ng l1terature when I found a note book at the very bottom
of the p1le It was f1lled Wlth closely typed notes just as I was about
to close It I saw to my amazement the names of some people I had
once known I looked agam and d1scovered that those were the Professor s
pr1vate and genu1ne op1n1ons of those who had consulted h1m
I confess lt Wlth shame I read that notebook I determmed that my
fr1ends should not be m1sled I would f1nd out what the Professor reall
thought they would become And what I found, I cop1ed so I wouldn't forget
Kathryn Irvmg IS a nervous 1nqu1s1t1ve type W1ll be a reporter and,
because of her 1ntense 1nterest 1n everybody s busmess and her cast 1ron
nerve wh1ch enables her to penetrate where she IS not wanted w1thout em
barrassment, she w1ll be an excellmg one In tem years t1me she W111 be
a nat1onal celebr1ty known as Polly Pry of the Graph1c News She w1ll be
so alert that she w1ll 1nterv1ew a crunmal wh1le he 1S comm1tt1ng the crune
and get to morrow s news last week
B1lly Kjer lS an 1nterest1ng case An over developed 1mag1nat1on and
under developed d1gest1on are producmg a wonderful result the ab1l1ty
to concoct the we1rdest tales at pract1ca1ly a mmute s not1ce In fact, th1s
ab1l1ty IS so remarkabl that n1s conversat1on con almost ent1rely of
w 1rd tales Those who know h1m well never bel1eve h1m and strangers
seldom Be1ng an 1ntell gent ,oung man he w1ll turn th1s talent to account
There are two courses open to h1m He may become an author, but that af
fords 1nsuff1c1ent scope for h1S g1fts as the tendency now 1S toward real1sm
No he 13 destmed for greater thmgs He w1ll become a real estate sales
man ell1ng Flor1da lots by the gross to the mhab1tants of Labrador and
1g1OOS to the dwellers 1n the Shara He may in h1S 161SUl'9 hours wr1te
eloquent speeches for pol1t1cians that be1ng a task 1n Wh1Ch he could employ
all h1S imang1nat1ve power without the 1ncons stenc1es bemg ever detected
MHPVIH Fry, a stol1d slow movmg chap who w1ll never d1splay e1ther
speed or an1mat1on Can be trusted 1II1p1lC1t1Y never to hurry He w1ll f1nd 'ns
proper pos1tion 1n l1fe early He w1ll become a plumber s ass1stant the ones
who goes back for the monkey wrench and can t fmd It He w1ll continue H1
that restful occupat1on lll'lt11 he d1es of old age

Fonda Lahman belongs to the great body of people who have a super1or
ity complex Ev1dently some one when she was very young pra1sed her
to excess for something she d1d and she has never recovered It gave
her an ingrowmg personal1ty Her del1ght and slull 1n gettmg others to
Work Whlle she watches, and her ab1l1ty to answer all quest1ons sometunes
correctly, to say nothmg of the snappy manner m Wh1Ch she orders people
around, point to but one calling that of a school teacher F1fty years
from now, gray ha1red perhaps, and a tr1f1e wrmkled but young at heart
and still going strong, she W111 be found U1 our school bossmg not only
her own pup1ls, but everybody on her floor
Joyce Merr1tt is a compos1te type w1th no mh1b1t1ons and few 1deas
and she loves publ1c1ty Belongs to no type 1n part1cular and to all in
comb1n1ng the worst features of each w1th a comely appearance and a str1
king personality She has a good strong vo1ce, can smg two ent1re songs
Without losing the tune and doesn t mind do1ng anythmg no matter how
s1lly so long as she 1S well pa1d for lt Her future 1S clear Ten years
from now your favor1te mot1on p1Ctl1I'9 cathedral W111 be d1sp'ay1ng huge
S1gl'lS announcmg Joyce Amer1ca s G1rl Fr1end 111 Cmderella s San
dals the all talk1ng all s1ng1ng all dancmg all color ep1c of the age
Miss Merrltt talks, S1I1gS dances, and plays three mus1cal 1nstruments
Dorothy Marshall has art1st1c ab1l1ty, keen busmess sense and an under
standing of the so called human race A dozen years from now she w1ll be
a Wealthy cosmetic1an, propr1etor of Ye Beaut1f1er Shoppy alterat1ons
wh1le you wa1t an up to date shop comb1n1ng the arts of beauty culture
and plastic surgery People men as well as women W111 enter lookmg
l1ke sixty and emerge look1ng l1ke sucteen She W111 become the most
famous skin renovator and face l1.fter m the wor d and always be an excell
ent advert1sement for her bl1S1IlGSS
Patsy Mercer is a strange case, troubled by a dream 11'l Wh1Ch she 1S
a canary bird being chased by a tom cat She told me she thought the dream
meant that she would be the keeper of a pet shop Qlllte wrong She w1ll
be a great smger She 1s one now mentally, but not vocally As soon as
she learns to tunn her tones 1mages mto audible sounds she will have all
the leading s1ngers as, Frank1e Bing D1nah Ioan and R1ta loolung up the
first train for home In 1955 she w1ll be s1ng1ng the t1tle role of any opera
you may name 1n the Cosmopol1tan Opera House and not recogmzlng her
friends when she meets them on the street
Elden Nye a rare type is of great interest to a psych1 tr1st He has a
double complex As a res11lt, h1s react1ons range from blackest despa1r
to sitting on top of the world He starts a thmg 111 one mood and f1n1shes
in another The result IS always CO1'l.f'l1S1D.g and somet1mes deplorable
His vocat1on must, of necess1ty, be one not bound by rule or reason a
sort of combmation steeplejack and deep sea d1ver He must be some
thing in which stab111ty, good Judgement open mmdedness and lack of
prejudice are unessent1al He w1ll become e1ther a baseball ump1re or a
referee of pr1ze fights

Ramona Bigeagle IS not a modern type She 1S persevering not
easily dlscouraged, and never g1ves up She w1ll fmd It hard to fit
into the l1fe of to day but one great openmg aWa1ts her In this great
age of endurance contests she w1ll become the champ1on of champ1ons
by simply makmg up her m1nd what she wants to do and domg it By
1949, she w1ll have become Amemca s champ1on pole sltter non stop
av1ator, rad1o hsterner marathon dancer b1cycle rider pretzel eater,
and mammy smger She w1ll be the world s und1sputed channel swlmrner
as once dropped 11'l she w1ll sw1m back and forth unt1l she manager
remembers to come and f1sh her out
Ruth Shoemaker is a charmmg type domest1c and capable, 'ut with
asllght inferionty complex due to the unfortunate fact that once she
received only second pr1ze ln an mternatlonal bread bakmg contest
Ten years from now, she w1ll be the happy br1de of a promlnent busmess
man w1th the mcest home and the best meals m town In add1t1on to that
she w1ll be a lecturer on home mak1ng, the kmd who tell people over
the rad1o, how to build a front porch out of packmg boxes and how to feed
grow fat as the result of eatmg her own cookmg but she w1ll always be
cheerful and a model housekeeper Her husband w1ll probably become
bored and elope W1th the cash1er m a tea shop, but I cannot be sure I have
not read h1s pshchoanalys1s
Jerome Mac1eJewsk1 has an athlet1c body and a letharglc mmd th
patlent type He l1kes to s1t and watch thmgs H1s calm dispositwn
combined w1th h1s mgramed mertness, makes h1m the ldeal type for a sports
promoter He IS deeply mterested 1n athlet1cs but plays pmochle hxmself
H cannot be manager of a ball team or a boxer as that would requ1re too
much moving about He w1ll keep a racmg stable He w1ll have a race

Although a seem ng mmsuccessful season the Monarchs can how
ever boast of being the team playing the most games in the conference
Billy and Vincent, our two forwards kept out team in their fight-
ing all the time and also flashed in plenty shots from the sides. Elden,
the Monarchs center, played heads up ball through the season and was al
ways helping the team. Marvin and Lavon kept pouring in those side shots
from their guard positions.
Much credit is due Coach Roach for his good management of the
boys. Constantly correcting their faults and caring for the welfare of the team
