CLASS, S. H. S.,
Most of the seniors of '21 have
been in S. M. S. all four years. We
Marled In thut September mora Just
four years ago, thinking we were the
most important part of S. H. S. and
Co. IMr. B. ti. Appleton seamed to
be of the same cpinlon also, for he
encouruRed the Idea the entire year.
MIs Anna May Klapporath tho't all
we lucked was Latin (and that Is
saying a whole lot). She sympa
thized strictly with the seniors in
their contempt for us. At that time
we tho't the seniors were very old
and wise and dignified excepting, of
course, Roy, George, Dick and a few
We were instructed In the ways of
Ancient History and led. or rather
dragged, thru the deep channels of
algebra, that year, by Olivp Hollings
worth. a sweet, mild little creature,
and very harmless. Mr. Brodgen,
Mr. Rives and Supt. Clark completed
our masters. However, Mr. Watson
and Mr. Garrett were always on hand
when we were In need of discipline.
We managed to lose a little of our
greenness and giggles before the year
drew to a close. Perhaps none of us
will ever forget the note John Stur
divant wrote Dorothy Chamblass,
which was read before chapel.
When that year closed, we had
lost one dear classmate, among others
that I can't recall, who was Eleanor
Fullilove. She went to Shreavesport.
where she has happily spent these
three years.
Perhaps we will never spend an
other such year as that Freshman
year, unless It be the college Fresh
man year.
Colors Red. white and blue.
Motto "Pro patrla."
Flowers Violet.
The faculty changed somewhat the
net year. Miss Craddo? was our
history teachpr, and a Jollier, better
teacher has yet to be found. Dear
little ( ? Anna King taught us the
figures of speech to outllne(?) and
make book reportst?) etc. She waa
as of the sweetest teachers In the
faculty. We had the honor this
ye;tr. of being taught by Anne Moore
Amo-Amas-Amat, or rather "All
Gaul is divided Into three parts."
She was not what you would call be-an-M-ful
but she made this up in
many other ways. Her greatest lack
ing was in senne of humor. Her ready
advice and being a good sport(??)
won the respect(?) of every pupil.
Several events bring back the
Sophomore year as the mysterious
sneezing spell that had a rage in our
room. Mr. Bryou Hari-. and his re
ceipt, also his discharge, the moon
light picnic, chaperoned by Miss
Moore. Mr. Faber and numerous
Colors Black and maroon.
Flower Red rose.
Tliitt year we lost several b'doved
classmates. Wittilu Brice. who has
her name upon the honor roll at
Weatherford. Dorothy Chambless.
who now lives at Waxahachie, Lee
Cornelius, who now resides in Min
eral Wells, John Sturdivaut. who
lives in Austin, and Exia Harvey, who
is now Mrs. Underwood.
But " 'tis better to have loved and
vu, than to have never loved at all."
The year of 1919-20 arrived
with our old crowd and n few addi
tions. By this time we were over
our fun and had settled down to
work. Teachers were hard to find
but Miss Moore and Mr. Lindsey
managed to stick It out here. Miss
McCorley also had the "leaiuref" o
teaching one brief year before she
settled down to matrimony. In his
tory we were taught by Robbie Strai
ten, Mr. Rives, Mrs. Meade. Mrs.
Kelley, Mrs. Strayhorn and Drlicks.
Mr. Weatherby was our only hope in
either math or holidays! ?). On No
vember 11 we gallantly took a holi
day to commemorate the close of the
great war. For this we were stern
ly reproved and our patriotism con
demned. But we were granted three
days to regain control of ourselves,
and also our grades were cut us
court martial.
This year we were (pleased to add
to our class Bertie Norcross. Anne
Lee Myers. Grace Periman. Floy
Worley and Bertha Curry, whom we
all thought very quiet and strange
until we knew her. also Ollie Rich
ardson, whom we firmly believed to
be bashful until we were made aware
of our mistake.
Most of us can faintly(?) recall a
picnic at Justiceburg and othr tho'ts
will at once arise in connection!!
Also a Junior-Senior party at the
Yeoman hall, a Senior-Junior picnic
at Wolfe Park. The awful day of
work we put in decorating the Senior
room while they were away. The
chloroform and asofetlda. etc., and
last but not least, the Junior-Senior
farewell party.
Colors Pink and green.
Motto "Not on top but climbing."
Flower Pink carnation.
Ou the 13th of September. 1920,
we gathered in the old red brick
building for our last year. Then we
met several new pupils who were
our class mates all year, as Babe or
Odyne Beavers. Fred Boon. Wayne
Boon, Sarah Wright, better known as
"Bob," who entertained us many
times, and Altha Fellmy, our secre
tary, and Corley Jenkins joined our
ranks from the Juniors. IIollls
Russell, D'Vern Wade, from Dunn,
Clara Pierce, who eloped, Floyd
BlakeJey, and Hattle Ditto, all of
whom left us before the first term
