A DATE WITH '52
KBETTER KNOWN AS THE SENIOR CLASS HISTORY,
Mr Lee Outland
Mrs Rose Hamilton
Four Fun Filled Years 1948-52
The Hallowed Halls of C H S
A osycologlcal drama oortraying the
mental and emotional g onth of 55
bewildered Freshmen through the
stages of green beanies to yellow
We, the graduating class of 1952, entered our Freshman year with high enthusiasm
There were 35 of us on the class roll
Dorothy Bo les
Mona Lee Lemmons
Mary Ann McNary
Determined to make our mark in the annals of CHS history we set about electing our
officers Those chosen were President Joan Wrigley, Vice President Bill Smith Sect
JonaBLemEons, Treasurer Joan Parrish Our sponsers were Miss Kimmel, Miss McConaha, Q
wr roo s
During the year we enjoyed such social events as a hayrlde party at Claude Hunt's
and a Christmas party at which we exchanged gifts Our first high school dance was the
'Freshman Fantasy? a Valentine Dance At this dance we inaugurated the idea of crowning
a king and queen
When we became Sophomores we began to feel a little less obscure Uoon enrolling
we found that we had lost 4 members Joan Wrigley, Donna Ridenour, Pauline Kellams, 8
Jerry Brookbank Buster Evans also left us early in the year Iris Miller, Betty
Mabry, and Paul White came along to take their places Our sponsers were Miss Kimmel
and Mr Brooks
Our officers were President Mary Ann McNary, Vice President Dick Stevens Sect
Julia Winters, Treasurer Joan Parrish Reporter Iris Resh Our first party was again
a hayrlde We crowned a king Q queen at our Valent1ne's dance for a second time This
and our 'Sophomore Shlndigu were both colossal successes
When we became Juniors we realized that a great task lay before us that of mak
ing enough money to finance the needs of a Senior class Thus our Junior year really
began in the little concession stand at the ball diamonds early in the summer of 1950
Starting back for our tnird year in high school we regretted that some of the fam
lliar faces were missing Harry Fulton, Paul White, Mona Lemmons and Russel Hllder
brand quit school John Bryan lAfter hearing Mr Brooks say 'Go west young man'b got
his directions mixed, and wanting to go to the Devllfsl anyway, transferred to a school
in our eastern suburbs Egils Purlns came to us from Latvia and with his outstanding
ping pong playing made a distinction for our class

BEHIND THVSE WALLS
Behind these walls of brick and steel
Imprisoned vith our study books
Our teachers are our wardens,
with their stern, forbidding looks
Armed with all but useless weapons
I speak of those pink slips,
They try in vain to stop our runnin
Or silence all our whispering lips
Some day soon we'll get our pardon
Conmemcement Day we all will share
Then we'll cry and hate to leave it
FREEDOM'S MORE THAN WE CAN BEAR""!

We, the Senior Class of '52, having
sound minds, bodies, and a bottle of
spirits, and fearing that our spirits
may soon be broken: do hereby declare
this to be our last will and testament.
As a class, we bequeath the following:
For the Faculty ----- WE LEAVE.
To the Juniors---We leave our seats
by the windows, the gum deposited under
them, our dirty yellow cords, and our
superior ranking in the school.
To the Sophomores---We leave our
most efficient brooms and muscles, to be
used by their clean-up committees.
To the Freshmen---Since the above
was all we posessed, we leave only aixpe
that they, too, will someday gain the
dignity, poise, and prestige that goes
with being a Senior.
Our singular selves bequeath the
followirg treasured belongings, to be
divulged among our fortunate survivors
in event of our passage into the cruel
world---To put it bluntly YOU CANHAVE
THE JUNK WHEN WE GET OUR DIPLOJLS
