Dear Classmates, as reminiscing seems to be the order of the day. let us recall some of the memories that have made these past four years mean so much to us. When our voyage began in September 1942, our class of 92 members was one of the largest ever enrolled in Greensburg High School. We were all entrusted to the care of Miss Mary Alice Thompson and Miss Sylvia Luther. As our part in the school carnival we presented a patriotic program entitled. ••Victory,” and for our Diamond Ring and Carnival Queen Candidates we decided on Nancy Simpson and Margaret Russell. With the close of our first year we looked ahead with eager eyes to the second year of our voyage.
Our Sophomore year began with the realization that our ranks had decreased greatly with the withdrawal of Dorothy Bloyd, Radena Hedgespeth. Geneva Hick-erson, Bessie Johnson. Louise Judd. Lucille Judd, Hanna L we, Edith Marr. Eulala Milby, Mozella Pruitt, Maeola Shelton, Dorothy Thompson, Sylvia Thompson. Zora Price, James Blakeman, Vessie Bradshaw, Junior Burress, Awdwin Durrett, Thomas Handy, John Price, Herman Ratliff. Thurman Simpson, Landis Tucker, Leslie Cox, Fred Melton, and Billy Warren. We that remained regretted their leaving, but welcomed aboard Justina Flowers, Annaoelle Milby, Lyda Blakeman. Marcus Munday, Odell Salsman, and Don Mitchell. It was decided that this year Our progress should be guided by Mrs. Charlie DeSpain and Miss Pauline Curry, now Mrs. Elmer Patterson. Under their direction we presented the "Grand Old Op'ry’ , in the carnival and elected Doris Dean Calhoon as Diamond Ring Candidate, and Cora Money for Carnival Queen Representative. Another year had slipped by and half of our voyage was over.
As Juniors we looked forward to another year of new experiences aand opportunities with Mrs. DeSpain and Mrs. O. L. Gumm as our sponsors. The beginning of our third year found missing from our ranks T. I. L yall. Buster Marsnali, Newman Parker, Garvis Pierce. Thomas Judd. Margie Milby, Edna Parker, Nancy Simpson, Janet Lee Stangcr, Clarrissa Tucker, Sylverna Warf, (who joined the Seniors), Mery Lou Graham, Hazel Forbes. Just.na Flowers. Lyda Blakeman. and Marcus Munday. Busier Marshall, T. I. Loyall and Thomas Judd had become members of the Armed Forces. Waiting to be admitted were Mae Adkins. Billy Warren, and B. J. Montgomery. During carnival time "Green River Showboat' was our program and Peggy Jo Clark and Cora Money were Diamond Ring and Carnival Queen Candidates. On April 13, we embarked upon our first dramatic production. "Hobgoblin House”, which proved from ah appearances a great succesSi Neither could we forget the banquet we gave in honor of the Seniors of '45. So we sailed blissfully on our way to the fourth and last year of our voyage.
As Seniors, we breathed the name again and again in ecstacy and also with a little disbelief for it seemed almost impossible that four yeais could pass so quickly. For the last part of our voyage we were intrusted to the care of Mrs. DeSpain and Mrs. Curry. We found ourselves saying “Hello” to Doris Thomas, Audrey Squires, Mary Lou Graham, and Julia Clark, and goodbye to Harold Chaudoin, Claude Sharpe, Page Sullivan, and Roy Wise, when they traded High School for Army and Navy careers. Besides them, Robert Allen, Gareth Milby, Peggy Jo Clark. Cora Money. Geraldine Squires, Letha Melton and Mae Adkins. One of the highlights of this year was our Carnival Victory with Peggy Thompson as Carnival Queen, and Audrey Squires as the Diamond Ring winner. We presented another successful play entitled “Super Suzy,” with proceeds of 413 dollars breaking all previous records and of course we can never forget the Juniors and the fun we had at Mammoth Cave.
So with our first port in sight we stop reminiscing and return to the present realizing that part of our voyage is over, so to our Professor Mr. Sanders, Mrs. Curry, the other members of the faculty and our many friends we take our leave thanking you for your guidance and co-operation that we’ve had through the years.
And now to our beloved sponsor whose love and patience we shall always remember with affection and appreciation, we say what we want to say least of all— Goodbye Mrs. DeSpain.
