We, the Senior Class of 1955, of Nahunta High School, have at last come near to one of our fondest dreams, graduating from high school. When we entered high school in 1951, there were thirty of us, with Mr. George Spirtos as our sponsor. Robert Edgerton was elected President; Gordon Wells, Vice President; Margaret Morris, Secretary; and Shelby Jean Pope, Treasurer. We were really green freshmen, and it took us a while to get used to the golden rules set for us. Our biggest thrill as a freshman was giving the Seniors a party. Vacation soon descended upon us after that. Just imagine us in the fall of 1952 as sophomores with Miss Louisiana Hurdle as our sponsor. We settled down and had a happy year. Gordon Wells was elected President; Robert Edgerton, Vice President; Margaret Morris, Secretary -Treasurer; and Dorothy Ivey, Reporter. Before we could even realize it, vacation was with us once more. That glorious fall of 1953 came when we returned to school as " jolly " Juniors. O ur class officers were Tommy Howell, President; Jonathan Hooks, Vice President; Dorothy Ivey, Secretary; Lula Belle Berry, Treasurer; and Margaret Morris, Reporter. Our first excitement was our Junior Play, " Everything Happens To Us, " which was a big success. Miss Rhoda Bone was our sponsor this year and she really worked hard to make the play a success. Then came the banquet when the Juniors and Seniors enjoyed an evening of pleasure in a Mexican atmosphere in the gymnasium. Then the commencement exer- cises came and naturally we just had to help the Seniors graduate. Jonathan Hooks, Dorothy Ivey, Margaret Morris, Bobby Fields, and Tommy Howell had the honor of being chosen marshals. In the fall of 1954 we came back to school with dreamy ideas. We were going to graduate in May. Our class officers elected were Allen Overman, President; Margaret Morris, Vice President; Dorothy Ivey, Secretary; Lula Belle Berry, Treasurer; and Gordon Wells, Reporter. Our first excitement was our Senior Play, " Professor, How Could You! " directed by our class advisor, Mrs. Molton Gurley. The play went off as a bigger success than we had ever hoped for. Then came our trip to Washington which was the crowning experience of our twelve years in school. And now, the commencement exercises which will put us out into the world on our own. May we take at this time just a moment to thank everyone who has helped us in any way to reach this goal. It is a long, hard road to travel, but the reward is waiting for you at the end. By Jonathan Hooks

OKct MtCUKCHt Friends, this is a solemn occasion. We, the class of 1955, having passed on to our rewards, have left behind, this last will and testament. 1, as legal advisor of the class, drew up this document, and it is cast-iron, unbreakable and legal. Being collectively of sound mind and having the fear of no human being, save that Mr. Hollowell and Superintendent Proctor, we are assembled here that this will may be read. Listen at- tentively, and be thankful for what you are about to receive. ARTICLE 1 To our teachers we convey our ability to know a good thing when we see it. As this ability has been largely created by their instructions, we are merely returning to them their own invaluable gift; also, a suggestion for making their lives easier, less difficult lessons, not so many tests, and fewer rules to be obeyed. ARTICLE 11 To our school we leave our fame, and hope the students won ' t let it die. We realize they can ' t live up to our achievements, but we trust they won ' t skid back too far. ARTICLE III To the members of the Junior Class, our rightful heirs, who will so soon take our places, we do hereby will our laughs, giggles, unsolved puzzles, tardy and absent marks, all the unchewed gum, cold lunches, half-filled notebooks, and all other unclaimed properties that have no value whatsoever. ARTICLE IV Personal bequeaths; Robert Edgerton leaves his ability to play basketball to Billy Rae Holland, so the team will have a star next year. Ruby Nichols wills her ability to skip class and not get caught to Melva Jean Mitchell. Melba Aycock leaves her bench warming ability to Robbie so the team will have a bench-warmer next year. Bobby Fields wills his ability to work algebra to Cecil Lane. Joseph Rollins leaves his ability to keep quiet and study to the eighth grade boys. Lula Belle Berry wills her trim figure to Reba Wiggins. Marie Winders leaves her friendliness, good looks, and figure to Atuiette Sassar, hoping she will follow in Marie ' s footsteps. Dorothy Ivey leaves her ability to be teacher ' s pet to all underprivileged students. Jonathan Hooks leaves his ability to fire the boiler to anyone who likes Chesterfields. Allen Overman leaves his ability to win trips to Inez Sasser. Tommy Howell leaves his geometry and ruler to anyone who takes it next year. Gordon Wells wills his craving for algebra to A. B. Crawford. Cooper Dees leaves his laziness to David Stafford since he doesn ' t have any. Margaret Morris leaves her ability to get along in any situation to Shirley Bedford. Vernon Sullivan leaves his ability to flirt to Dickey Pierce hoping he will catch on after a while. Respectfully yours, Margaret Morris, Testator
