CLASS III 'l'0ltY
In a recent edition of that widely read Atlanta
paper, The Senior Reader, dated JUHC, 1945, we
noticed that one squadron of the Army Air
Force had made several successful missions in
the combat zone. By an odd coincidence, it
seems that all of this squadron had received
their wings at the Napsonian School in June,
l944. Not all, however, began their basic train-
ing at Naps, only one of its members, Dorothy
Grau, enrolled in the Kindergarten and First
Grade. After learning to count on her fingers,
Dot received a furlough. This 1944 class was
not represented again until Ray King came into
the Fourth Grade. She, too, soon took a leave
of absence, her place filled by Roberta Maclagan
who started her training at Naps in the Fifth
Grade and stayed on. ln the Seventh Grade,
when the class was beginning its classification
tests, Roberta was joined by a large number of
Cadets, one of these, Ray King, merely return-
ing from her furlough, others entering, Ann
Joiner, Alice Lawrence, Mary Noras, Joanne
Rae, and Ann Ransom. The next year Maribelle
Calkins and Edith Lively entered the Eighth
Grade to be classified and Dorothy Grau re-
turned. The whole class rejoiced at the end of
the year when they found they had all passed
classification and were now ready to enter Pre-
flight. When they entered Pre-flight-High
School at Naps-June Roselle and Joann Smith
entered too. Since they studied hard that year,
all twelve were allowed to enter the Primary
Flying School. However, one Cadet, Maribelle
" ' ' ' -if . .
, 1 f V' ,--"'
4' . -t'
. ' ":' .
Calkins, decided to take her Primary Training
at another school. She did not report the fol-
lowing fall, but the other eleven and a large
number of new Cadets did. These new Cadets
were: Maizie Almon, Frances Bennett, Lucile
Castleberry, Mary Jayne Dritt, Peggy Kahn,
Claire Kemper, Beverly Magbee, Marilyn Mc-
Clung, Martha Niedlinger, Joyce Rounds, Betty
Sealey, Louise Sharp, Shirlie Smith, and Lida
Walker. When this class, which now numbered
twenty-five, finished their Primary Training, they
were told they could enter Basic Flying Train-
ing. So tempting did this sound that all but
one returned in the fall. Dot Grau was again
on furlough, but six other Cadets transferred to
Naps, Jane Carey, Ruth Clapp, Margaret Ann
Elebash, Dorothy lzard, Polly Tate, Norma
Tomey, and Frances Wright. The squadron this
year acquired so much fame by putting on an
Army Show that three candidates could not
wait until the next fall and Marianne Keith,
Mozelle Stone, and Juanita Swann entered in the
middle of the year. The squadron's fame grew
more and more, so when they began advanced
training the next year, they found some new
members awaiting them, Geraldine Bush, Emery
Catts, Marjorie Clark, Barbara Eversole, Minnie
Hamilton, Louise Hicks, and Nadia Moore. Also
awaiting them were Maribelle Calkins and Dor-
othy Grau, who could not resist returning to thc
excellent training at Naps.
Because of their appreciation to Naps for
what it was doing for them the squadron put
on a Mardi Gras for the schoolls entertainment.
The school so thoroughly enjoyed this that they
allowed all forty-four members of the class to
graduate. They were presented their wings by
Miss Thyrza Askew, Commander of Naps.

Couniercloclswisez Wright, Walker
We, the members of the Senior Class of '44, being of
more or less sound mind, and realizing that those de-
parting should make proper disposition of the talents,
charms, and eccentricities which have been held in
awe f?J by the underclassmen, do hereby will and be-
queath the following:
Item I: To the up and coming Senior Class we
leave the Knew this year" tile fioor in Senior Hall.
Item II: I, Joanne Rae, leave my string of Junior
High basketball admirers to Nan Ivey.
Item III: I, Jane Carey, sadly leave Nancy McClung
to the "next" Senior Class, led by Betty Ann Whitaker.
Item IV: I, Maribell Calkins, leave my gentle tongue
to Jean Bodin and Barbara Berman, that the Study Hall
may be more restful.
Item V: We, Lucille Castleberry and Nadia Moore,
leave our stature to Betty Anderson and Frances Harbin.
They need it i?l.
Item VI: I, Mary Jayne Dritt, relinquish my spirit
and vim in cheer leading to Martha Hosford.
Item VII: I, Margaret Ann Elebash, leave my voice,
to help beg for ads for the annual, to Elizabeth Wolf.
Item VIII: We, Maizie Almon and Betty Sealy, leave
our executive ability to Betty Wright and Frances Long.
Item IX: I, Edith Lively, leave my ability to upole-
vault" from sophomore to senior to anyone who can
stand the extra work-Clodie Hubbell and Elizabeth
Frink are nearly ready.
Item X: I. Dorothy Grau, leave my long distance hop
to school to Florence Crook. May she use it as well as
I have done!

Witness my hand and seal, this fifteenth day of Feb-
A ttorney-at-Law J
May 23, 1957.
If you have looked through the papers in the
last few years and especially in this year of
1957, you will find that the alumnae of a certain
school, Napsonian High, in Atlanta, Georgia,
have been mentioned numerous times. This col-
umnist Hnds that she has written about a large
number of them herself. We find that the most
illustrious group of them all came from one
class-that of 194-4. Upon referring back to
our articles of the past few years, we found that
the tracing of such a class would make interest-
ing reading for our public.
Any one of our readers can remember when
a few years ago our relations with Greece be-
came strained after the Greeks sent us a ship-
load of olive trees as a goodwill gift, and our
secretary of state, who was not a graduate of
Napsonian, wrote back thanking them for the
beautiful date palms. lt was then that the true
diplomatic ability of Ambassador Mary Noras
came to the front. She sent an apology to the
Greek Embassy and a fifty page report on the
characteristics of olive trees to the secretary of
On the home front, our foremost Home Eco-
nomics expert, the former Miss Geraldine Bush,
has gone into business manufacturing her own
discovery, the roll-less, stick-less, flexible, fault-
less rolling pin, which she has patented under
the title of the Elmer Pin. She named it after
the man who was her inspiration.
ln the literary world, we find Miss Joanne
Rae, who has once again been acclaimed the
greatest biographer of all time for the fifteenth
volume of her Life of Abraham Lincoln. She
has now recorded his life up to his eighteenth
year. Lucile Castleberry's book, Smiles I've
Known and Why They Fitted Their Faces, is
coming off the press next month and it is
rumored to be the most revealing book since
The class of '44 is represented on the legiti-
mate stage by Miss Ruth Clapp, whose modern-
ized version of Milton's Comns has proved to be
a record breaker. But not only do we find Nap-
sites in the theater: Mlle. Louise Hicks has been
hailed as another Kirsten Flagstad for her in-
terpretations of the Wagnerian heroines. On the
concert stage, We find Claire Kemper, whose
rendition of her own tone poem, Variations On
the Actions of a Little Brother, on the violin has
brought Carnegie Hall to its feet for thirty-six
encores. That great exponent of the acrobatic
dance, Frances Bennett, is now on tour with her
troupe exhibiting the triple dipped front roll
hand stand over six people.
Two of the foremost debaters of the genera-
tion, the Misses Pauline Tate and Maizie Almon,
are now filling engagements on the West Coast.
Miss Tate debates on the subjects, French Verbs:
Pro and Con, and Cats as Mascots: Pro and
Con. Miss Tate has no trouble with her voca-
tion except that she can find no one who will
defend against her the "pro" of either topic.
Miss Almon's chosen field of debate is Frater-
nity Pins: Pro and Con. Her only complaint is
similar to Miss Tate's except that she can find
no one to defend the Neon."
ln the world of science, that eminent labora-
tory technician, Dorothy lzard, has perfected
her discovery of cultured measles cultures, and
thereby revolutionized the disease. She was able
to complete her investigation through the co-
operation of Drs. Mozelle Stone and Emery
Catts, the foremost authorities on measles in
North America. The name of Barbara Eversole,
M.D., has become a household word since her
correspondence course, Seven Steps to Success-
ful Broken Bone Setting at Home, became a best
seller. When Nurse Maribelle Calkins recently
became President of the American Nurses Asso-
ciation, she broke all precedent by omitting
from all Home Nursing courses the demonstra-
tion bed bath. The new president of the National
Red Cross, June Rosselle, has been presenting
her ballet company in several benefit perform-
ances. ln charge of the U. S. 0. we find Dorothy
Crau and Roberta Maclagan. They have en-
larged it since the last war to include help for
civilians as well as for those in uniform.
The New Flairie Success Course has made
new women out of 26,000,000 old ones, and the
guiding spirits in the various departments of
Beauty, Inc., of which the Success Course is a
part are: Mlles. Peggy Kahn and Louise Sharpe,
co-presidents in charge of general beauty, Mlle.
Beverly Magbee, first vice-president in charge of
hair, Mlle. Margie Clark, first vice-president in
charge of complexionsg Mlle. Jane Carey, first
vice-president in charge of eyes, and Mlle. Joyce
Rounds, general manager and coordinator of
Those three noted chemists, Minnie Hamilton,
Marianne Keith, and Joan Crocker are contin-
uing their search for an inexpensive method of
mass production of unbreakable test tubes.
Edith Lively, archaeologist extraordinary, has
just finished a report to the Smithsonian lnsti-
tute telling why it was unhealthy for the kings
of Egypt to be buried in the pyramids. Miss
Lively claims she figured out her theory through
The marriage of Miss Alice Lawrence to A.
Riche Mann caused much comment in the social
circle, as Miss Lawrence had described herself
as a permanent 'fbachelor girlf, She is often
visited at her town house by those two horticul-
turists, Margaret Ann Elebash and Joanne Smith.
They recently placed a revolutionary orchid on
the market. It is much cheaper than the old
style orchid, a fact which these artists of the
vegetable attribute to the materials used to make
them-turnips, red cabbage, and ice.
A new figure has joined the ranks of the Petty
Girl and the Varga Girl. She is the Swann Girl,
drawn by Artist Juanita Swann, who modestly
attributes all her success to her models, Mary
Jayne Dritt, Martha Niedlinger, and Ray King.
Miss Marilyn McClung's school, in which
everyone majors in "How Not To Be Late,', is
the' rage of the day. Miss McClung claims she
was first inspired to direct the course when she
was at Naps.
Betty Sealy, Shirlie Smith, and Frances
Wright are engaged in the novel and prosperous
business of making note cards and bibliography
cards for the benefit of those writing investiga-
This columnist has it on good authority that
the vacant seat in the supreme court may be
filled by none other than Miss Ann Ransom.
ln the higher brackets of journalism we find
those two noted editors, Ann Joiner and Norma
Tomey. They recently introduced a revolution-
ary daily which publishes only first hand pic-
tures of the news when it is news, without writ-
ten articles. And just in case you've wondered
how this writer got so well acquainted with so
many prominent people, she too was in the
class of '44-.
' ,aF?FE'r -1-'1
E IUR AP
CLASS OF U14
Each day of our senior year presents
A hundred or more great events,
I guess this year will always be
The greatest one of all to me.
Our senior class had fame,
And best of all an honest name
What this class of '44 has done,
Can never be stopped by anyone.
White bricks gleaming in the morning sun-light
Windows, like eyes, all shiny and bright,
Books and papers strewn from left to right,
That's Senior Hall.
The radio blaring, through the school resounds
Disturbing the peace for miles around,
All cats and dogs a home here have found,
Thatis Senior Hall.

If youlve noticed several girls
strutting proudly down the hall,
With shining faces and sprightly paces,
And happy looks about them all.
Then you'll know that theyire the ones,
Who now wear the black and gold,
The very sweet, the new elite,
Cecilians! so Tim told.

The opening night of the Cecilian play
Saw excitement and anxiety,
The players had waited for this day,
When their talents become a reality.
Properties must he ready,
Cecilians on your feet,
Time for the curtain-steady,
Here's the crisis we must meet.
Down comes the final curtain,
The applause is lasting praise,
The Cecilian talents are certain,
We'll look forward to future plays.

1944 BA 'KETBALL
For all the games tl1ey've played this yearg
They fought and won or fought and lost,
But played clean games at any cost.
The first they played was Sacred Heart,
Where ,loanne played a leading partg
The next game ended in defeat,
For Griffin had us in retreat.
North Fulton was the next game played,
And 28 was the score we made.
Then Athens played us at the "Y,"
Forget that scoreg let's let that die.
Decatur's team at first proved best,
But later we won on the next test.
Alumnae games bring back old friends,
So our contact never ends.
From five games played, we next lost two,
A thing which we should never do.
The Seminary came up at last,
The basketball season has passed.
