AFTER A DECADE
Out of an era of blood and tears, the turbulancy of war, I see a nation at peace, the aftermath of war has become adjusted to a peace-time world. Ten years- have passed since our graduation and somehow, classmates we have become separated from each other. Those happiest days of our youth are gone almost without warning. As I remember you now in he order that you sat in our 100m a probability as to what you are doing now comes to my mind for each of you.
Wilda Twyman, quiet, selfcontained is now teaching the care of the hands, in the College of Beauty Culture in Louisville University.
Ruth Wilson now wears two rings on third finger, left hand, and is a settled, capable housekeeper residing near Picketts Chapel.
Margie Acree is now a very efficient teacher of the social sciences at State University.
Maxine Milby is now Mathematics instructor at Berea College—remember how- she worried about that college entrance test in Algebra?
Ralph Berry has stepped into Frank Sinatra’s shoes as mos‘. popular crooner of the day.
Maurice Tucker, Jr. is the band leader most often featured at the Stork Club —the billing outside reads "Nick Ratnose" and his nine—no no what am I thinking about? Featured with him is Virginia Wilcoxson noted blues singer of the day.
James L. Durham, after graduating from Annapolis has become an instructor in RADAR there.
Jimmie Monson is continuing his naval career. Why I almost believe that’s commander before his name.
Mildred Mardis is now superintendent of nurses at a large New York hospital.
Doris Boyd, most patronized dentist in Elizabethtown is proving that a career doesn’t necessarily interfere with happy married life.
Lorena Judd is now the capable secretary of Durwood Montgomery who is in charge of Breslin Construction now.
Sylvia Lobb is now most efficiently holding the position of home economics teacher at Greensburg High School. ' ' • ■ • '
Dolores Shaikun is now a civil engineer for Curtis-Wright in Louisville.
Margaret L. Gorin has become a famous coloratura-soprano and is now singing at the Metropolitan Opera House.
Sylvema Warf has entered the law profession and it’s rumored that she will be a candidate for Attorney-General in the next election.
Ralph Lobb is now field agent for the state agricultural department and is frequently seen discussing latest farm practices with George Robert Gumm one of the most progressive farmers of Green county.
Lilburn Bagby energetic as ever, has taken over the running of the taxies.
Margie B. Judd is now assisting Hobart in running the Liletown postoffice and is raising chickens as a side line.
Sarah Lowe is now a matronly housewife residing on Columbia Avenue and is often found assisting her husband in the store.
Mary Jane Edwards has become a cartoonist of the realistic school, and draws a comic strip for the “Times”.
The last seat is my own and I find myself—but suddenly the mood has left me and I can prophesy no more.

Our four years in high school might be compared with the four seasons of the year. In these four years there has been some fair weather and some foul. In spite of the cold winter winds and the deep snows of studies and tests we have grown in wisdom, courage, and ability. •
Like a whirlwind of brightly colored autumn leaves, we descend upon Greens-burg High School in the fall of 1941 under the sponsorship of Mrs. Samuel Smith and Mr. Monroe Ayres. They were assisted by Thomas Perry, President; Marjorie Bailey Judd, Vice President; Virginia Wilcoxson, Secretary-Treasurer.
The first big event was the annual carnival when we gave a Stephen Collins Foster Program. Marjorie Bailey Judd represented our class for the Carnival Queen and Dolores Shaikun was the candidate for the Diamond Ring Queen.
Margie Acree led our class with the highest scholastic average.
The winter season is symbolic of our sophomore year. There were dark days also a few bright ones prevailing that gave us a promise of the coming spring.
We were divided into two groups under the watchful care of Misses Elsie McKinney and Martha Leer. The class officers were Ralph Lobb. President; Virginia Wilcoxson, Vice-President; Jimmy Monson, Secretary; Allyne Higgason, Treasurer.
Again, the carnival was a big event when we presented "Mountain Justice”. Hazle Hughes was our representative for Carnival Queen and Marjorie Bailey Judd. Diamond Ring Candidate.
Ralph Lobb was honored by having the highest average in the sophomore class.
The dark winter days passed and in due time, spring, our third year in high school, budded and blossomed into a promising season.
We were combined into one group under the excellent leadership of Miss Margaret Clayton. TTie assistants were: Thomas Perry. President; Marjorie Bailey Judd. Vice-President; Sarah Lowe, Secretary: James L. Durham, Treasurer.
Our carnival feature was the “Gay Nineties Review". Mary Jane Edwards represented our class for Carnival Queen and Margaret Lillian Gorin was our Diamond Ring candidate. They both were very close runner-ups.
In the latter part of our junior year we staged our first play "Me and My Shadow” which broke all previous records in receipts.
Our class entertained the seniors with a banquet using the airplane as a motif. An enjoyable program was presented with Thomas Perry officiating as toastmaster.
Margie Acree again led our class with the highest scholastic average.
Spring flourished into summer as twenty-seven seniors embarked on their last and most eventful year in high school.
We were entrusted to the careful guidance of Miss Elsie McKinney with the assistance of Maurice Tucker. President; Margaret Lillian Gorin, Vice-President; Marjorie Bailey Judd. Secretary; Jimmy Monson, Treasurer.
The new members that joined our class in our senior year were Maurice Tucker, former student of Manuel and Sylvema Warf. who has completed high school in three years. Sylvema had the highest average in the senior class. We regret the loss of Frances Perkins, who, because of illness, left our class
The annual carnival was a greater success than it had ever been. The seniors, in tradition, gave the “Senior Minstrel.’ Mary Jane Edwards, our representative won the honor of Carnival Queen and our Diamond Ring candidate, Margaret Lillian Gorin won that contest. They both won by an overwhelming majority.
We, as seniors presented the 3-act comedy. “Wedding Spells” which was a very successful production.
This year would be incomplete without mentioning the delightful banquet given in our honor by the junior class.
We pause to recognize Elizabeth Hood. Henry Ford Pepper, and Thomas Pern.’ who gave up their school careers for services in the Armed Forces.
We are grateful to Miss McKinney and Mr. Sanders for their untiring efforts and ‘heir readiness to assist us in solving our pr. blems. We realize that without the co-operation and support of the other clases and faculty members our high school days could not have been so successful.
We are happy as we graduate, but we regre leaving Greensburg High School whose care we entrust to the succeeding class.
May the class of '45 be loyal alumni.
