In 1944 a group of anxious boys and girls entered the first grade
at New Market School. Among these, thirteen are still with us: Marilee
Johnson, Billie Ann Livesay, Tammy Miller, Keith Britton, Delores
Baldwin, Eleanor Wiatt, Jerry Stevenson, Wilbert Jarvis, Robert Deck,
Kenneth Kincaid, Shirley Powers, Larry Gentry, and John Swearingen.
Mrs. Evelyn Douglas, our teacher, escorted us on a train trip to the
canning factory in Ladoga. David Baker and Lyle Quigg joined us later
We were off to a flying start. Now that we had passed into the
second grade with Mrs. Widener as the teacher, she taught each of us
to write to one thousand, which was quite an accomplishment. Dick
Hargis, Bill Chamness, Glenda Dove, David Stull, and Sherman Morris
became members of the class this year.
Ronnie Seaman, who turned out to be the class politician, ioined
us in the third grade. Ask Tammy, Butch, and Jerry what June told our
teacher, Mrs. Edwards, about them. What was it, fellows???
Gee, fourth grade already! Rachel Young and Sandra Powers join-
ed our now illustrious class. This was another year that proved to be
quite mischievous for Keith and Tammy. How did you fellows retrieve
those squirt guns that were taken from you by our teacher, Mrs.
The next year we learned to be very well-behaved boys and girls.
We didn't leave anything on our trays at noon, we didn't run in the
halls, talk in classes, or write notes, and we didn't hesitate to get our
lessons because we knew we would get iabbed by long, sharp finger-
nails if we did. Of course, we are talking about the fifth grade and our
teacher, Mrs. Haines.
After Anthony Kochert and Byron Lewellen ioined our class in the
sixth grade, we had a grand total of forty-eight. Mrs. Imogene DeBusk,
who did her best to prepare us for our roles as members of the "up-
stairs," accompanied us on a trip to Vincennes, Indiana, at the close of
After finding what teacher went with what class and after real-
izing we could make as much noise as the other high school students
could, we were well on our way in our first year "up-stairs." Mr. Milli-
gan, our home-room teacher, had to suffer through our once-a-week
class meetings with Dick Miles as president. Who ever heard of correct
parliamentary procedure? We hadn't! Don Hultz joined our class this
year. Also, we made a trip to Indianapolis to see the Indiana Legis-
lature in action.
Mr. Charles DeBusk and Mr. Phil Beck escorted our class on a very
educational trip to Chicago during our eighth grade. By this time we
had some really good basketball players in our class, and when Fred
Barth ioined us, we thought we had never had it so good. The girls'

physical education classes had quite a number of exciting episodes.
Maybe we should have had some lessons on "How to Use a Zipper
Correctly." Would that have been a good idea, Glenda?
At the Fish Fry in T952 we got our first taste of what it was going
to be like to be freshmen. We were painted with lipstick, made fun of,
and treated terribly. The girls who ioined Sunshine were given in-
structions as to what to wear on initiation day at school. What a con-
glomeration! Luckily, Mr. Cassidy, our principal, was absent that day. A
pair of twins, Doris and Phyllis Dyer, joined our class this year. The
Sunshine Society held a volley ball tournament, andlwe freshmen girls
As sophomores we looked forward to painting the oncoming crop
of green freshies at the Fish Fry. This year we also strutted around
proudly in our blue and gray class sweaters, the prettiest New Market
had ever seen. Our class was really grown-up now. Some of the boys
even had driver's licenses.
As we continued to climb the ladder of education, we found our-
selves in the iunior spotlight. Of course, the big thing this year was
getting our class rings. Nevertheless, some classmates didn't keep them
very long! Aided by the wonderful directing of Mrs. Wray, we pre-
sented our play, "Moonlight and Applesauce," on April Fool's Day, but
it surely was no ioke. We were very pleased to have a sell-out on
tickets. As iuniors it was our pleasure to hold a reception in honor of
the seniors. lt was held at Old Trail Inn with Colonial Days as our theme
carried out in the decorations. After dinner Gene Patton and his band
provided music for dancing. We had worked hard on the reception and
were rewarded by a great many compliments.
September, l955, started the school year with our class as seniors.
On October l we presented our play, "Kicked Out of College." On
December l we gave a chicken supper to secure funds for our trip to
New York after graduation. Plans for the Annual have already been
started, and all graduation plans are in action. We wish to thank our
parents, teachers, and all the people who have made our school days
happy and our education possible.
