Junior Class History


By Pauline Morgan


In 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 Carlton High School . 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.


Our 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!


In 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 actors.


The junior class officers at this time are: Kenneth Brimer, president; Homer Cozby, vice-president; Gwendoline Fine, secretary-treasurer and Pauline Morgan, reporter.


The 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.


We hope to all go to the senior class next year, finish our high school education and really commence living.


Junior Class Prophecy


By Eula Mae Carr


(Copyrighted by permission, April 9, 1936)


The 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.


Adventurous? 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.


“Happy-go-lucky” 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 any.


The 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.”


Will of Junior Class


This 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.


We hereby hope that this class will enjoy these talents and possibilities as well as we have
