LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF
THE CLASS OF '40
State of Tennessee
County of Hamblen
City of lllorristown
late, the Senior Class of Morristown High School, being of sound mind
and being about to leave this High School, hereby make and declare this, olur
last will and testament.
FIRST: XYC. the Graduating Class, do hereby bequeath to our honorable
successors our multitude of virtues and our goodly vices. Although our success-
ors are endowed with a surplus of brains, we pass on to them our vast intellectual
viewpoint. This viewpoint, I might add, is more than national, it is more than
international: in fact. it is universal. To the distinguished members of the suc-
ceeding class, we also bequeath our genius in the realm ot' sponts. Quite true
we got licked in basketball, we got licked in baseball, we were no good in races,
we were trimmed to a frazzle in tennis, and we spent a week in the hospital after
each football game. lint does this indicate that we do not know how to play?
Nonsense! lflow rediculous! All that it indicates is that the other fellows were
much better than we were.
SECOND: W'e do hereby bequeath to the future Seniors all the exquis-
ite carvings with which our desks are adorned. lt is our last wish that these
precious relics be treated with due admiration and respect.
THIRD: To the faculty of Morristown High School, we will all the
wads of chewing gum which are to be found under the aforesaid desksg since
throughout the past year, the faculty has seemed to covet and look with longing
eyes at the -aforesaid wads of chewing gum.
FOURTH: Lyman Smith wills ALL his girls to the Junior boys. Hurry,
boys, two girls will not last long!
FlliTl'l: The graduating Hurricanettes leave their most extraordinary
record to next year's team. Now. girls, don't win a game and ruin this record.
SlXTH: Wie find the remainder of the Seniors tearfully but graciously
fiinging wildly their most cherished possessions to any and everyone:

Carmichael, Kathleen Dearing, and Marie McKinney. Four very prominent
farmers are VVilbur Pnrkey, Billy Line, Dallas Cantwell, and XVanford Seagle.
In Hollywood are Burchell Wfright and Mack Hall. It seems that Burehell is now
a very famous comedian and is very popular. Mack doesn't seem to be doing
so well, as his last picture was a complete flop. Georgia XN'illi-ams is a dietition
in a large hospital in New York. Anna ll. Conkin is now in England dancing
before the king. Flo Hill is head of the Red Cross here. She has as her
helpers Dorothy Altom, Marie Collins, and Sarah Carson. Clifford Bryan, E. C.
Pnrkey, Clure Hodge, and Harold Hale are pilots. Fire Chief in Morristown
is Junior Lee, and Chief of Police, Carl Ja-cobs. Virginia Cain is now married
to a millionaire and is making 'an around-the-world cruse with Virginia Ellen-
burg as her companion. J. XVi1ey Charles is president of the U.S. His wife
is the former Hazel Vifilliams. Employed as his private secretary is Virginia
Bryant. It seems that Vtfanetta Riggs is hired to cheer up the president. when
he is in one of those 'blue moods, by making wise cracks and telling him jokes.
Mildred Garrett is married also and lives in California.
NVhen the Gypsy had finished, I arose and went out of her tent with my
head full of visions and wondering if what she had said would come true, but
only time will tell.
TO A CLASSMATE
Twelve long years we've worked together,
Sometimes qnarreling, sometimes gayg
From the first grade to the ending
lVe have come a long, long way.
O'er the years our friendship strengthened.
And it is, within my heart,
A living treasure, to be present
Long after we two shall part.
A kind and understanding friend
Is worth his weight in goldg
And you have been this friend to me.
Yes, I have oft' been told
f That old friends are the best of friends
And I believe it true,
For never will I find a friend
That quite surpasses you.
