1926, a group of jolly little fellows, about twenty in number, started to
school for the first time. Their teacher at the time was Miss Gertie Lee
Oxford. Four persons who were members of that class are also members of
the junior class of ’36 in
. The other members have gone here and yon, while others have come to take
their places in the class. These four charter members, so to speak, are J.
G. Findley, Jr., Kenneth Brimer, Gwendoline Fine and Pauline Morgan. In
1933, Kathryn Lackey, Mary Louise Fine, Edgar Thompson, Geraldine Thedford
and Tull Havens came to our class. In 1934 we had Homer Cozby and Lorene
and Inez Locke join our group and in 1935 our class of 17 was compacted
when Marjorie Sharp, T. J. Carter, Wilma Jean Jordan, Betty Jo Fine and
Joe Moss joined us.
class made quite a showing at the County Interscholastic League Meet this
year in sports. Gwendoline Fine went in singles in tennis and played a
number of good games. Mary Louise Fine entered in tennis doubles with a
senior partner and although they made only a small showing, we feel sure
that Mary will win next time. Marjorie Sharp, Mary Louise Fine, Kathryn
Lackey and Gwendoline Fine
were on the volley ball team which represented
this school in this county, and by the way, that volley ball team has won
the county championship for the last two years!
the way of actors our class is gifted. We presented our class play, “The
Little Clodhopper” in November, 1935, and it was the “hit” of the
season. Gwendoline Fine and Homer Cozby had the honor of being the leading
characters in this play, and I’m here to tell you they’re really good
junior class officers at this time are: Kenneth Brimer, president; Homer
Cozby, vice-president; Gwendoline Fine, secretary-treasurer and Pauline
junior class didn’t go so strong for literary events; they require more
thinking than we have the power to do. However, Gwendoline Fine won third
place in declamation and Pauline Morgan and her partner won a second place
in high school spelling.
hope to all go to the senior class next year, finish our high school
education and really commence living.

Junior class consists of several groups. The first of these to be
considered is the adventurous one which includes Inez Locke, Lorene Locke,
Geraldine Thedford, T. J. Carter, Joe Moss and Edgar Thompson.
A more fitting word may be found, but the “down-to-earth” meaning is
this: they show prevalent inclinations to be elsewhere when they are
attending their classes.
is a fitting descriptive word for Wilma Jean Jordan, Betty Jo Fine,
Kathryn Lackey and Marjorie Sharp. These are indisputably the girls who
will have interesting careers. It is being predicted that Wilma Jean will
be a second Myrna Loy, while on the other hand, Betty Jo and Kathryn
Lackey will follow in the footsteps of Marie Dressler. Marjorie Sharp, of
course, has set her goal as nursing wounded soldiers in the next war—if
very few who have set ambitions are Pauline Morgan, Mary Louise Fine, Tull
Havens, Homer Cozby, Kenneth Brimer, J. G. Finley and Gwendoline Fine. The
ones (in the group) who have not ambitions need not worry for the class is
ambitious for them. Gwendoline will win “laurels and fame” in tennis,
if her dreams come true. Pauline plans to major in English, the study of
all studies. Mary Louise desires to win white uniforms and write her name
with R. N. following. Tull Havens, who likes to settle down in an armchair
with a “Street and Smith Wild and Western Weekly,” wants (though he
won’t admit it) to be a fast shooting cowboy, one who knows his “broncs.”
Homer Cozby will, of course, be a universally famous artist (or
cartoonist) and will paint the finest Madonna of the age. Kenneth will, if
he takes a serious turn, probably be a great architect or engineer.
However, if his humor develops, he will be another Will Rogers. Then
there’s J. G. His life will be very like Kenneth’s for “whatsoever
Kenneth does, that doeth J. G. also.”
of Junior Class
is the last will and testament of the Junior Class, and we hereby leave
the following things: To Adrian Bell we leave Kenneth’s chewing gum; to
Myrl Clifton we leave Mary Louise’s by-word, “My Com”; to Florine
Havens we leave Pauline’s knowledge of English; to Jewel Dove we leave
Gwendoline’s ability to play tennis; to Les Chambers we leave J. G.’s
ring; to Richard Cloyd we leave Kathryn Lackey’s musical talent; to
Leland Huffman we leave Inez’s humor; to Dan Anderson we leave
Geraldine’s ability to dance; to Nadine Burnett we leave Marjorie’s
lipstick; to Doyle Salmon we leave Lorene’s pencil box; to Cleve J.
Woolley we leave Tull’s green shirt; to Freddie Sharp we leave Betty
Jo’s ability to tap dance; to Mildred Carter we leave Wilma Jean’s red
hat; to George Cook we leave Joe’s timidity; to Nolan Geye we leave
Edgar Thompson’s excuses; to Joyce Lynn Moore we leave Homer’s ability
to draw; and to Robert Looney we leave T. J.’s matches.
hereby hope that this class will enjoy these talents and possibilities as
well as we have
