SEPTEMBER Clubs are organized. ALL those brilliant people who are eligible for Beta Club: Didn't know we had so much genius C?J around here. 7 Sz 6 begins the school year with a picnic at Havely's. Perhaps they were interested in the method used to purify the city's water. Shades of my ancestors!! My mistake, it's just those initiations again. OCTOBER Hi-Y never fails us. The annual HAYRIDE! Nuff said. The witches really had a good ride this year with both the 7 Sz 6 and Sub-Debs giving parties. I can't understand it. Another hayride! I wonder why they're so popular? This time it's the F. F. A. The annual Annual work gets under way with John Helms supervising. NOVEMBER Basketball practice has begun. Keep your fingers crossed. New version--Snow White and the Seven Wolves! 7 8: 6 take top honors at Stunt Nite. The question is-Who are the WOLVES? Stunt Nite was a lot of fun. We have the Hi-Y to thank for that. Half day holiday! Scrap, scrap, and more scrap. Hup, two, three, four! Band, Military Drill, and WAC's parade on Armistice Day. I just LOVE holidays. Especially if there's a turkey concerned. DECEMBER What's colder than a cold pebble? Liquid air! We know it's so because "seeing is believing." The 17th is here at last, and so is the Hi-Y Banquet! Do wehrate! Two Xmas programs, thanks to the Girl Reserves and the C orus. The Girl Reserves, Hi-Y, Sub-Debs, and 7 SL 6 rejuvenated the cafeteria. Makes eating a pleasure. Am I kidding? Mrs. Massey definitely made eating a pleasure when she took over the cafeteria. Mr. Vance decides that we need one week to prepare for Santa Claus and one week to get over the feasting. JANUARY Time Marches On--it is now 1944 and SURPRISE! SURPRISE! Majors is now Huddleston! The old year was ushered out and the new year ushered in by the 7 8z 6 Banquet and the Sub-Deb party. Some fun, huh? Several are suffering from chills and fever. Both excellent symptoms of Examomania. Mr. Strange has taken over the difficult job of coaching our teams. Pret- ty swell of him, isn't it? All the girls are happy to have an opportunity to show off their glad rags. At the tea for "Majors Huddlestonf' IT KHA lxki CALENDAR FEBRUARY The great day finally came. The Girl Reserves Best-Date Banquet with Tessie and Buddy, the cutest couple. I've come to the conclusion people like to eat--the Boy Scouts also have had a Banquet. More fun! The Music and Home Ec. Departments sponsor the Carnival. Betty Lou Burnett reigns as Queen. Gangway ---- here come those girls who rush home for the mail! Poor post- man, I'll bet he gets AWFUL tired. Martha Webb wins D. A. R. Citizenship Award. MARCH Mrs. Massey entertains all the clubs who helped to fix up the cafeteria. For the first time in history we have the District Tournament at Morris- town High. Also, WE WIN!! Boys' team goes to Maryville to play in Regional Tournament. Luck wasn't playing on their side but aren't we proud of them. Basketball teams present trophies in chapel. The 7 8: 6 polishes the old ones so they'll be as bright as new. The Sub-Deb Club becomes a member of the National Confederation, After many hours of grueling practice Cyou aren't supposed to laughb the Senior Class presented "And Came the Spring." Howard Hill kept his reputation of always producing a SUCCESS! , APRIL Football practice begins. History is made ---- 55 go out for spring practice! Another queen is crowned! This time it is Elaree Hartman as F. F. A. Queen. The climax was the banquet held in the cafeteria. Rabinof comes to Morristown. "Play fiddle, play!" "Words and Music" is quite a success with Marjorie Ewing and Red Rey- nolds playing the leads. Girl Reserves have their annual Mother Daughter get-together. This year it's a Silver Tea. F. F. A. sends delegates to the State Convention at Nashville. The ggcise is finally, conclusively, absolutely, irrevocably fixed. CWe EJ. Jr.-Sr. Banquet. It was really swell. Hope the Jrs. get as good a feed next year. MAY Military Drill and Band parade again. Last of the Hi-Y activities for the year--picnic at Havely's. The Beta Club is celebrating their release with a picnic. Everyone seems to be celebrating. The Dramatic Club expressed their joy in a hayride. Paper Staff and Annual Staff have a joint banquet. Yum! Yum!! E. E. Patton of Knoxville speaks, the mercury rises, we melt, but it's all worth it because this is IT. 'lhis is the END. FINIS KIM Sponsor MRS. W. C. HUDDLESTON STAFF JOHN E.

Carolyn K.- I want some alligator shoes so bad! Doris L.- What size shoe does your alligator wear? Marriage is an institution, love is blind. Therefore marriage is an in- stitution for the blind. Tessie P.- Is my face dirty, or is it just my imagination? John Helms- Your face is clean, I don't know about your imagination. Betty Jo- Did anyone ever tell you, you were handsome? Bruce-Why no, I don't believe they did!!! Betty Jo- Then where did you get the idea? Johnny W.- Pop, can you write with your eyes closed? Mr. Wallace- Yes. Johnny- Then close your eyes and sign my grade card.

Come right in. Such an unexpected surprise! It'S not everybody who has the Editor of the National Geographic drop in for a visit. You're what? Oh-- writing an article, "Who Was Who Ten Years Ago." Well, I'll be glad to give you the lowdown if I can. Yes, isn't that a grand portrait of Betty Jo Bales? It's one of Ruth Atchley's best works. It's called "Concert Pianist." Morristown is cer- tainly proud of Betty Jo and Ruth, too. Let's see 1944--why that was leap year. That reminds me- you re- member Virginia Epps and Leora Eller, don't you? Well, they gave a love- ly shower for Carolyn King Milligan and then, to everybody's astonish- ment, were married at a double wedding the very next day. That was some time before Shirley Burgner gave her heart to the navy. She has a lovely new home in Jefferson City right across from the college. Her daughter is one of the star pupils at Miss Deanne Milligan's Exclusive School of the Dance for Select Young Ladies falso rug-cutting, j itterbugging, conga and rumba instruction for all cats that are strictly in the groveb. Georgia Garretson, you know her latest boogie-woogie book out-sold Hazel Scott's by 64.5 copies, plays for the pupils on Thursdays. Guess who dropped in to see me last week, Helen Knox! Just the other day I finished her amazing biography of John Helms III, the world's billiards champion, entitled H27 Years Behind the Eight Ball." She told me that she won that contest sponsored by Harbin's Cuestick Corporation, and had been crowned Miss Cue off 1954. She said the honor was conferred on her by Billie Canter, Jack's number one secretary. He recently raised her salary so she wouldn't leave his company for the Maybelline Mascara people who are begging her for a contract. Knox promised me if I would go to New York to visit her, she would have a dinner party just for me and invite Charlotte Mullins, the Metropolitan Opera star and her ac- companist, Frances Karr, and Mary Nell Murray, the world's typing cham- pion, and Pat Siler, the famous model Cyou know the Jantzen and Cat- alina Companies almost had a feud over whose contract she would acceptl. She said we would have popcorn from Eloise Martin and Frances Craw- ford's famous Grand Central Station stand. They use corn grown exclu- sively on Marvin Wisecarver's farm. Then we would visit Mary Nelle Chandler and Mary Jane Cantrell's "Watery Grave Aquarium," or go to the Ritz Theatre to see J. W. Shipley and Hix Slagle, who are giving lectures and demonstrations on "Unsuccessful Strangle Holds." At all times Sophia Smith and Margaret Noe, who saw duty overseas as Red Cross nurses in the last war, are on hand in case one of the holds is successful. Wasn't Admiral Tuttle simply wonderful in the battle of Flat-foot- floogie Bay in January 1945? It was the last really important battle of the war. It was about that time that Dot Scarbrough made her first good- will tour to South America. Mary Ruth Hale really did her part as Pres- ggi? all ITAKHA lliitiiis 5 ident of the War Committee by getting "Zeke" Cosson to donate his en- tire junk yard to the scrap drive. She is still being president of everything and doing a wonderful job. Oh, it's time for Margaret Harrison's "Fancy Foods for Fancy Folks" program. I never miss it. Yesterday She gave a super recipe for "Spiced Spinach" contributed by Miss Peggy May, the head of the Home Ec. De- partment of Vassar. Just after this program the comedian who hires Jean Haskins and Clara Jenkins to laugh at his jokes comes on, followed by Betty Jo Sams' unusually funny show. At 4:15 Christine Reagan, the famous blues singer, is doing a request number on Kate Louella Gobble Smith's hour. She is going to sing "The Canning Factory Blues" or "The Sour Apple Waltz". Could you stay long enough for us to take in Tessie fpronounced Tay-sab Portrum's latest picture? She's so good in technicolor-- the only star with the five-toned hair. Marjorie Ewing, her press agent has done wonders along that line of publicity. She has Jeanne Reiland design all her clothes and insists on having Perry Jolly as her photographer. They're featuring a short made from Virginia Price and Dot Livingston's new book, "The Antics of Peculiar Animals." The authors themselves are ap- pearing in the film. At last, the mail has come. Here's a letter from Mary Margaret Bell. You know she sets the copy for those penmanship books grammar school kids struggle through. Look at the headlines of the "Gazette and Mail". No doubt their star reporter, Maria Doka, wrote this up: "Frank Joyce, the foremost research chemist, and Agnes Bryan. the math wizard have just invented a soundless motor, they call it the E-Z Going. Billie I-Iisev is to include a discription of it in her new dictionary which is guaranteed to contain 500 more words than any other one on the market." I do believe that's Mrs. Q. Horton Jr. driving the ambulance up the street. As first lady of our town, she has an important social position. Just the other day she gave a lovely luncheon for Martha Webb, the fa- mous magazine illustrator. I got it straight from Jane who got it straight from Martha that Billy Russell, the great basketball professional, didn't play his last scheduled game because he was in Canada trying to stop his good friend, "Red" Reynolds, from dyeing his hair so he could join the Northwest Royal Mounted Police. Next Wednesday she is giving a tea for Maria Hayes, the only lady member of the President's cabinet. Since Maria is in town, Maxine Shoun asked her to talk to her classes at High School on Friday. That's the day Doris Long is going to lecture on "Cul- tivate, Don't Harrow Your Speaking Voice." She's on her way to visit Carolyn Kirk in Chicago. Carolyn has made a small fortune posing for Curley-Q Shampoo ads-- of course she doesn't touch the stuff. And speak- ing of red-heads, Vona Cannon has just taken a position as James Bruce's secretary- you know he always did prefer that color. His dairy farm is famfius. His slogan "Milk-Shakes from Jitterbugging Cows" is known the wor d over. John Wallace is a shoe salesman. It's the only way he can get a first choice on leather. Yes, he ought to be home any minute now. Ruth Massey . . WAJSS.-iii?" 'fi Wm IT KHA vkvsikci JUNIORS RAY BEETS HARRY CANTWELL VERNON COSSON ED DAVIS BOBBY BRUCE H. C.

The hay-ride, which was the high-light of the club's year, was held on April 14 and the "Hi-Y-ers" and their dates had a swell time.

M.H.S BAND Another school year is finished and We can look back now with plea- sant recollections on many events of the year. The high school band at the first of this year was almost "whipped", having lost not only its band director but also almost all of its veteran members. With nearly all hope gone for a good band season, Miss Elizabeth Knight, for two years music teacher at Junior High, came to the rescue. She welded the band, made up almost completely of beginners, into a group of which our school can be justly proud. The following captains were selected over the various sections. Harvey Johnson- Trombonesg Donald Zorn- Percussiong C. T. Vance- Brassg and H. C. Evans Jr.- Reeds. On Armistice Day, the band made its first public appearence. The group marched through the main business district and afterward played a short concert. With football abandoned for the year, the band brought pep to a fine basketball team by playing at all important home games. The band has been honored by having three of its members selected for the annual band clinic at Johnson City this year. 'The student body should be indeed proud of their band for, by over- coming many difficulties, they brought to Morristown High a real school spirit. - IT KHAlXiEtj 1 Z: f .V K A: .. Q.

ORCHESTRA Under the capable direction of Miss Elizabeth Knight, the high school orchestra has been moulded into an organization worthy of the A-1 school it represents. Being completely a volunteer class, these students have gone a long way since early October, when they first met as a group. Late in the first semester the orchestra played for Stunt Night and followed that by playing for the crowning of the High School and Junior High School royalty at the school carnival. With a few appearances "under their belts," the orchestra was primed for one of the most important oc- casions of the year, the Senior play. It was generally conceded that the orchestra had never sounded better than it did on the night of the play. With the school year fast coming to a close, the group played for the outstanding event of the year for the Music Department, the annual oper- etta. Every member of the cast, chorus, and orchestra turned in a credit- able performance and everyone attending had a very enjoyable evening. Ending the year by playing for the junior high and high school commence- ments, the orchestra departed looking forward to another fine orchestra in the new school year. ' ln ITAKHA T-ag? NELL BRYANT, Carnival Queen SCHOOL CARNIVAL One of the high points in the school year of '43-'44 was the high school carnival sponsored by The Music and Home Economics Depart- ments of Morristown High School presented on the night of February 24. Over six hundred citizens of Morristown packed the gymnasium to See Harvey Johnson and Nell Bryant crowned The High School Carnival King and Queen, and Carl Haskins and Louise Noe crowned The Junior High King and Queen. After the impressive crowning, a command preformance was given by local talent featuring Juanita Whetsel, Sonny Greene, Bob- bie Pearl and Jennie Rhea Britton, Ralph Jones, and H. C. Evans, Jr. The high school attendants were Betty Lou Burnett and Bobby Cain, Barbara Tuttle and Dick Gaut, Ruth Jaynes and Tommy Horner, Herstine Wade and Floyd Tuttle, and Sophia Smith. The Junior High attendents were Bobby Pearl Britton and Herbert Harville, Mary Ann Long and Billy Ray Young, Clara Bell Midkiff and Donald Zorn, and Billie Inman and Walter Harrell. Following the Reces- sional, "Aida March" played by the Morristown High Orchestra, the as- sembly dispersed to enjoy the remainder of the carnival. And it truly had all the elements that make up a real carnival--Bingo, fishing booths, guessing games, cake walks, fortune telling booths and even a freak show. A few highlights of the evening were a girls' basket ball game between members of the school's leading boys' clubs, boys' boxing matches, and Tec- nicolor movies. All those attending will remember the carnival night aS one of the most enjoyable times of the '43-'44 school year.

It was in every re- spect a huge success and a most scintillating triumph. Howard L. Hill coached the play and his reputation for never having staged a failure cer- tainly suffered no backset in this amazing production. The play as it pro- ceeded through three acts and six scenes held the capacity audience thrilled and rapt. The stage setting was beautiful, due to the hearty co-operation of Weesner-Reams Co. along with Mrs. Henry Medlin and Trobaugh flo- rists. It represented the living room of the Hartman family. In the back- ground was a railed stairway leading to an upper floor. Charming furni- ture was scattered around the room, alive with spring flowers, beautiful draperies, mirrors and delightful prints. The audience gasped when the curtain parted. But no production can be a success without the proper cast, and there is no question about the cast in "And Came the Spring." It was superb, and in the opinion of this reporter few professional productions could have gathered together a finer, more talented cast. There were seventeen in the cast and each one deserves great commendation for his or her flawless work. The story was a fascinating one, a story that might happen in any average American family. The Hartman children, two girls and one boy, along with their friends, experience the usual adolescent emotions, which are of tremendous importance to them, even if a bit comic to adults. The action centered around the 15-year-old Midge Hartman, in her efforts to help every one with whom she comes in contact, from her sister and broth- er, her friends, to her newfound love. The results of her "inferference" in the lives of those around her produce a long range of laughter and tears. Unusual situations develop and complications which seem to be impossible of solution are eventually worked out to the general satisfaction of every one concerned. In other words, the story is an intriguing one, which held the audience breathless until the final curtain. Billie Hisey, whose "Midge Hartman" was a personal triumph, prob- ably attained highest honors, not only because the part itself was so fasci- nating, but because of the truly professional manner in which she played the part. Her name was on the lips of every one who saw the production and amazement was expressed at the clever manner in which she por- trayed the lovable hoyden. Playing the difficult roles of Mr. and Mrs. Hartman, older character- izations which are always difficult for young people, were John Wallace and Nelle Ruth Portrum. These two astonished the audience by their poise, grace and dignity: they were the perfect, understanding parents in an adolescent world of heart-breaks, misunderstandings, and restlessness. Floyd Tuttle, in the role of the studious young Hartman son, whose ambition was to write the great American novel, certainly deserves tre- ITAKI-lAl ' mendous honor for the deft manner in which he played the part, especially in the transition from a "greasy grind" to a young man of the world. Ralph Jones played the part of Buzz Lindsay in a delightful manner, he was unquestionably a"natural," and his dilemma in trying to choose between the two Hartman girls was played with understanding and charm. To Buddy Julian goes tremendous credit in the part of Keith Nolan, a stage-struck young gentleman who falls for every pretty face he sees. He did the part delightfully and with an appreciation that would challenge many a professional. The audience was thrilled with his performance. Edd Harrell and Patsy Siler played the parts of Freddie and Gabby, two of Midge's friends whose time was spent rushing from one jitterbug engagement to another. Their fresh youthfulness and irresistible charm endeared them to the entire audience. They were typical modern kids, lov- able and carefree. The elder Hartman daughter, Virginia, was superbly handled by at- tractive Deanne Milligan, who not only looked the part, but played it with amazingly realistic appreciation. At one time when she was supposed to weep, the audience swore she actually wept, a perfect example of a real actress. In contrast to Virginia's natural sweetness was the clever, gorgeous glamour girl from New York, Carollyn Webster, played by Ruth Massey. Looking exactly like Veronica Lake, she swept through the scenes with devastating results, until you wanted to slay her. But this charming, very lovely blond young lady deserves stellar honors for her amazing deline- ation. She was really a knock-out. Edna, the maid, was played by Mary Ruth Hale, and though the part was not conspicuous, it was handled in a strikingly professional manner. Her personal beauty, and the smart manner in which she served the Hart- man family breakfast, probably brought her lucrative offers from this servantless city. Her love affair with Clancy, the gardener, was an en- tertaining side-light to the general love-interest of the play. Clancy was played by John Helms III, who gave his usual good performance. His ex- perience in dramatics stood him in good stead, he always gives a con- vincing account of himself. Mr. and Mrs. Fields were played by Hix Slagle and Charlotte Mullins, The parts were in dramatic contrast to the sweetness and charm of the Hartman couple, and these two young people made the most of their ren- dition in a most commendable manner. Carolyn Kirk did the part of Christine Myers, the female athletic product of the high school. She acted the role with unusual robustness and force and brought quite a few laughs by her relentless energy. Eugene Seale had the part of Alan Fields, a meek, unassertive young chap, and he played the role with understanding and appreciation. The messenger boy was James Bruce, who looked the part of a young, lrandsfmme, aggressive Western Union employee. He gave quite a lift to t e pay. Special praise is extended to Miss Elizabeth Knight, who was in charge of the High School orchestra, which played before the performance and between acts in a most pleasing and entertaining manner. All in all, the production was a great credit to the Senior Class, the class sponsor, Miss Biva Smith, and to the dramatic coach. People in Morristown will not soon forget this outstanding production. The high standard of High School plays was most impressively maintained by this 1944 presentation of "And Came the Spring." ui ITAKI-IA !,'!

BOYS' BASKETBALL TEAM This year, in spite of rationing and other war obstacles, M. H. S. developed two of the best boys' and girls' basketball teams in years. As usual our teams played one of the toughest schedules that could be main- tained. The boys won the district basketball tournament and the girls were the runners-up. All the credit for the development of these splendid teams goes to "Coach" Charles Strange. Before "Coach" Strange took over, Bill Bricker, an employee of T. V. A., started the teams in practice. Mr. Bricker would have made an excellent coach but his job forced him to move out of town. Mention should also be made of Mrs. W. C. Huddle- ston, secretary and treasurer of the team, and Floyd Tuttle, business man- ager. All of the business transactions for the basketball teams were made entirely by these two. The boys' basketball line-up: CGD F. Tuttle KFD B. Horner QGJ V. Cosson KFJ C. Bireley QCD B. Russell Bobby Horner, forward, played a fast moving game. It is his first year of basketball and he certainly turned in some nice games. Charles Bireley, forward, was one of the most essential players on the team and made some very beautiful jump shots. Bill Russell, center, was our spot man and usually high point man. Bill was also Captain of the team and this was his third year of basketball. "Baldy" Cosson, guard, made many a break shot that put our team ahead. This is "Baldy's" second and last year of basketball. Floyd Tuttle, the other. guard, played an excellent de- fensive game and made some nice long shots that helped in the tight spots. This is also Tuttle's second and final year. "Red" Hodge, Junior Cole, and Coy Shockley were the best substitutes a team could desire. 5 fkiifwfi- JA? 1 ik X., E A KQJIAKH A ffl -VQTQY First Row- Maggie Smith, Katherine Harville, Lois Strange, Norma Jean Carson, Carolyn King, Irene Turner, Coach Strange. Second Row- Sue Stapleton, Herstine Wade, Charlotte Owens, Ollie Faddis, Charlotte Mullins, Josephine Allen. GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM "Coach" Strange also developed an excellent girls' team. The girls had a smooth, fast team and, as it was mentioned before, they were run- ners-up in the district tournament. The usual line-up was: fFJ Turner KGJ Faddis CFD Carson CGD Harville CFD King IGJ Smith This year the girls' squad had several experienced members. Among those were Irene Turner, who played the position of forward. You could always depend on her to be high point girl. The captain of the team was Norma Jean Carson, who always turned in a good game in spite of diffi- culties. Next is litt'e Carolyn King: although small, she never failed to give a good account of herself. Ollie Faddis was voted the most valuable player in the tournament and she certainly did a good job of guarding. Katherine Harville played a smooth game and was very efficient. Maggie Smith was an excellent guard and kept her opponents from scoring. Last, but not least, our girls had some swell substitutes. They were Charlotte Owens and Lois Strange. To end the year both squads had a banquet in the cafeteria. Those lettering were Irene Turner, Norma Jean Carson, Carolyn King, Ollie Fad- dis, Katherine Harville, Maggie Smith, Charlotte Owens, Lois Strange, Herstine Wade, Charlotte Mullins, and Josephine Allen. Boys lettering were: Bill Russell, Vernon Cosson, Chas. Bireley, Bobby Horner, Floyd Tuttle, Jr. Cole, J. D. Hodge, Coy Shockley, Tommy Horner, J. L. Cosson. Leslie Julian. Next year's captain will be Charles Bireley. JUNIOR BASKETBALL TEAM Bobby Horner, Tommy Horner, J. D. Hodge, Coy Shockley, Thomas Cole. These boys won the class basketball championship of Morristown High School in the class tournament conducted during the months of Nov- ember through February. The tournament produced several good teams but the Juniors proved the best of the field and won the title with ease. TENNIS TEAM Although sports as a whole have been curtailed this year, the call for try-outs for the tennis team was responded to with enthusiasm on the part ofthe students and more than twenty boys took part in the tourna- ment which was to determine the five top players of M. H. S. When the smoke had cleared away, the following players remained: Bobby Crass, Buddy Gibson, J. L. Cosson, R. C. Crosby, and John Helms III. The courts were put in good condition and a new net was furnished the school by the athletic association. More interest was shown in tennis this spring than in the past several seasons and scarcely a day passed on which the courts were not in use. The difficulties of transportation had prevented most schools from continuing their inter-scholastic tennis and so it was almost impossible to secure matches with other teams, even though great effort was made to do so. However, just when it began to appear certain that no matches would be held, the grand news arrived that a match with the V-12 team at Carson-Newman would take place. At Jefferson City, although the sail- ors won, we had a lot of fun and didn't do so badly after all. The only match in which M. H. S. was victorious was the No. 1 doubles played by Helms and Gibson, the score being 6-4, 7-5. Several of the other matches were close, alsog especially the No. 1 singles in which Helms was defeated in three close sets, 6-3, 4-6, and 6-1. All of the M. H. S. team was new with the exception of Helms who had played on it for the past three prev- ious years and finished this spring. The rest of the boys will be back next fall and can be expected to do a good job with the '45 matches. Following are the players and their positions on the team: No. 1-Cap- tain Helms, No. 2- Gibson, No.3- Cosson, No. 4- Gass, and No. 5- Crosby.
