cyidfory On Sept. 10, 1946, there entered into Murray High School the most promising group of freshmen ever to enter the portal of MHS. Forty- nine "Poor little babes lost in the woods' grew up that year under the leadership of Mr. Haron West, sponsor, and Letitia Maupin, president. We came backa year later. Our intellect was broader, but our number smaller, only 43 this year. We lost Thomas Taylor, who joined the Navy, Graves Joyner, who went back to Tennessee, Robert King, who moved to Paris, Jimmy Rowland, who preferred work to school, Jean King, who enrolled at the Training School, Betty Murphy, who chose matrimony, Dick Berry, who moved to Washington, and Joyce Russell, who moved to Ohio. We gained three students: Hazel Dyer from the Training School, O. T. Stalls, Almo, Kentucky, and Maurice "Red" Myers. It was during our Sophomore year that we began to grasp the vision of our desired goal-graduation. All in all, the year was a success- ful one, but who could fail with such sponsors as Mr. Wilburn Cavitt and Mrs. Tom Rowlett and Robert Glin Jeffrey as president. In 1948 we became juniors and gained the title of 'upperclassmen' We were a determined group of youngsters, eager to continue what we had so bravely begun. We selected Mrs. Charles Snow and Miss Frances Grant as our leaders and Robert Glin Jeffrey as our President. This, our third year,marked a time of great gain, a gain of brains and beauty. Our new students were: Barbara Ann Ward from Corbin, Kentucky, Mary Ann Underwood, Flint, Michigan, June Overcast, Paris, Tennessee, and Jean Futrell and Wanda Burks,Almo, Kentucky. We lost Billy McDougal, Max Moore, and Maurice Myers, who quit school, and O. T. Stalls, who returned to Almo. Climaxing our Junior year, we gave the seniors a banquet at the Club House, the theme of which was the "Gold Digging Forty-nine r s " . On Sept. 6, 1949, we, the 47 seniors who compose the 1950 class, entered the gay old portals of Murray High to "walk the last mile of the way". This year has been one of complete victory. We have the co-op- eration of the entire student, body and faculty in all of our endeavors. Some of the highlights have been the Progressive Dinner, the Halloween Carnival, and the arrival of our class rings. Again this year, we were given two new students to taste the last bite of success withus. They were Phil Sprunger, Mansfield, Ohio, and Euva Parker of Detroit, Michi- gan. There was only one who did not enjoy the happiest year of all. He was Toy Lee Barnett, who chose matrimony. Mr. W. B. Moser and Mrs. Richard Giles have been our able guides, and Clegg Austin., our president. Soon we shall say farewell to Murray High School and to all the things which we hold so dear to our hearts. As we leave we say to the faculty: You have given us the most precious gift of all---confidence and faith, if our lives do not live up to the high ideals you have given us it will not be because of your faults. May we only say--Thanks for every- thing. "We have fought a good fight, we have finished our course, and we have kept the faith". Henceforth,there is laid up for us a crown of glory, our diploma.
