On a cold December night as I sat in my easy chair
before the fireplace my thoughts strayed and I stared into
the blazing tire which appeared to me as the Senior Class
of '53-'54. As the night wore on the fire began toidie
down and the embers appeared as the individuals of our
class. These embers told the story of love, excitement,
adventure, success and cooperation.
First, I saw Tommy Barrett working away on the
time clock of the Louisville and Nashville train to make
sure it didn't meet up with the N. C. 81 St. L. Lines. He
was doing a grand job and the wrecks were inevitable.
Next appeared Hannah Campbell who had kept her
place at Wade Motor Co., only she was ,now promoted to
the position of Credit Manager. How's business Hannah?
Peggy Gann then came into the scene. She is now a
modest homemaker in New Hope. How those Hoors
shine, Good Work, Peggy I I I
Betty Dickson appeared as a teacher in the Watkins
Institute. Teach them "A stitch in time saves nine,"
Betty I I I
Then I saw Porter Curtis working away at the Ken-
tucky Derby. He was not the trainer, but the jockey!
Dorothy Clendening remained close to home. She is
now switchboard operator for the' Southern Bell Tele-
phone Co. Don't eavesdrop Dot!
The scene then changed to Chicago when at one of
the leading theaters was "Hear the Dixielandersf' star-
ring Lucien Anderson. Thus he had made a success of
his singing career. Wonderful voice, Huh I I I
Ewing White appeared next, he looked slightly differ-
ent from the boy we had seen in school. He is now a
M!Sgt. in the army. What do you do in the infantry,
White P ? ?
Betty Worsham is now a model for the Spiegel Co.,
in Chicago. What a success that girl is I I I BoyI did
their business increase ? ? ?
Next appeared Marguerite Durham, she is working
in the filing department of the Sunday School Board.
Watch Marguerite and don't get those files mixed!
Miller Frost is now operating a dairy in Shackle
Island. You realized the meaning of the slogan "Milk
for Health," huh, Frost?
Jackie Curtis appeared in New York, she is the book-
keeper for a prominent man there in the Empire State
Building. Better keep those debits and credits equal,
Jackie ! I I
Bobby Baker changed the scene considerably for on
Broadway was showing, "Where's Charlie?'I and guess
who was playing Charlie? none but Baker I I I
Thomas Buchanan was now acting as an advisor to
President Kefauver who had only recently taken office.
Great success, Thomas!
Joanne McDuITee came on the scene in Los Angeles,
she now owns and operates one of the largest Beauty
Salons there. Watch those haircuts, Joanne I I I
I. C. Blair now has a farm near the New Hope com-
munity, and the crops he is producing are unimaginable.
Is it the soil or you, J. C. ? ? ?
Pete Curtis appeared on the Old Hickory Lake. Was
he enjoying himself? Good catch, Pete I I !
Gran Harris was now manager of the National Stores
of Hendersonville. Guess who his secretary was ? ? ?
None but Anne Dorris. Good boss I I I
Roberta Caruthers is now the private secretary at the
Nashville Electric Company. With her typing so fast she
gets her work done in a half day. What do you do with
the other half? No loanng on the company's time Bobyl
Sarah Staley is now working as a "Home Economist"
in the Betty Crocker Kitchen. My, those pies I I I
Roy McConnell made his way to Washington and
there he has taken the place of Senator Albert Gore.
You climbed the ladder, McConnell, now see what you
can do with those Republicans ? ? ?
The scene changed to St. Thomas Hospital where
Anna Mae Wheeler is nurse. Those shots she gives,
can't you be a little easier, Wheeler ? ? P
Floyd Poindexter is now the vocational agricultural
advisor at Gallatin High School. Such F. F. A.'s he will
make of them I I I
Mary Jo Williams has made use of all that shorthand
and typing, by becoming secretary to the owner of
Harvey's. Working Girl I I I
Then the embers had faded away and once more I- was
aware of the fact that we were still a class attending
H. H. S., and though we would soon have completed
another milestone in our lives, we could leave thinking
of the past "Golden Memories" which had meant so much
to each of us.
