We the class of 1941 in the town of Greensburg in the county of Green
and the state of Kentucky being in as good mental condition as usual and in much
better temper than usual do hereby make this our last will and testament render
mg void and of no avail any former will or wills that may have been previously
made by us during a period of temporary optimism
We feel that our brilliant record and our unusual achievements will live
after us but not wishing to take any chances we suggest that a tablet on which
shall be inscribed our names and a few or our most astounding deeds be purchased
and placed in the front hall of the school in a position where it will strike the eye
of all who enter
And in this manner we dispose of our possessions
To our dear school building itself vie leave the peaceful quiet caused by
our absence and any apple cores wads of gum notebooks pencils or unfinished
lollypops we may have left about
To our principal Mr Sanders we give and bequeath First a sense of relief
that we have at last been graduated Second pleasant memories of our four years
together Third a feeling of pride in any noteworthy achievements that our future
may contain realizing that such glories if anv will owe much to his example and
To our teachers the faculty of G H S we hereby gixe free from all
inheritance luxury or income tax our entire stock of knowledge From them it
came and to them it should be returned that others may be benefited by it as we
have been We also wish to give to our teachers our sincere gratitude for their
unfailing kindness and aid
To dear old Greensburg High itself we leave the vxords and music of The
More We Get Together Its sentiments and phrases have been in active use for the
last hundred years and as yet shows no signs of fatigue Maybe it s no so beautiful
but it IS certainly very durable
Also we leave to our beloved school the wrecked remains of our teachers
To members of the Junior Class our rightful heirs we bequeath freely
and without reservations our most valuable possessions namely our self
quantities We hope said gifts will be of use in overcoming their present inertia
We also will to the Junior Class our good luck This luck has made us what
we are today and it should satisfy them We give to them also our well worn nerves
These they will need next year In addition we bequeath all the examination
questions which we have been able to slip out during the past year It is our belief
and observation that an examination like history often repeats itself The answers
never owned in entirely have long since been m1sla1d by us and are not included
in this legacy
To our dear friends the Sophomores we leave our patience This will be
found useful since it 1S the only means by which they can endure the Juniors
To the young and unsophisticated Freshmen to be we leave a map of the
school building This map is to prevent their getting lost and roaming around in
everybody s way whil they are looking for their classrooms We include with said
map our littl book entitled How to Impress the Teachers This book is an mvalu
abl pamphlet written exclusively by us after four years of arduous study In this
booklet you will learn that Tennyson and Browning must be your favorite authors
if you wish to gain a point with Miss Eva Also that Miss Clayton is especially fond
of the word why Further this book explains how a suggested topic and a few
laughs will make Mr Sanders forget his teaching and be interesting as well as
entertaining any day This information is invaluable to any student wishing to make
high grades under the teachers mentioned above
It will be noticed that we have left the Freshmen soon to be Sophomores
nothing We nave left them nothmg because by the time they have become
Sophomores their self valuation will have attained such heights that nothing in our
possession would be regarded by them as worthy of their distinction
