Bell and Bill Stafford, cheerleaders. Miss
Mary Craig Suiter was our adviser.
When each class began to send in its
sports prospects we did not lag behind.
We were proud to have Fanny Lou
Parker as a member of the varsity bas
ketball team, and Ben Ward was easily
listed -as a varsity swimmer. We were
proud that a great number of our class
remembered that one must start at the
bottom to reach the top. With great
interest we saw Marion Byrd, D. B.
Burns, J. R. Barnes, and Billy Herring
make the Junior baseball team.
Reporting for spring football were
John Bridgers, Thomas York, James and
John Lee, Lee Adams, George Buie,
Billy Simmons, Chester Johnson, and
And so ended our first year in GHS,
one in which athletic participation was

Dear class of 1942,
Our love to you we give.
And faithful we will strive to be
All of the days we live;
Though some hardships may come
And make our days seem wrong,
We will always be true; to you, ’42,
We now dedicate this song.

For you we will always fight.

got into this fascinating subject to find
out what it was all about.
One day during class meetin^ we were
somewhat startled to discover that we
had no class colors or song. Effie Ruth
appointed Hilda Bell chairman of the
color committee with Juanita Person
and Ben Ward to help her. From the
several sugesetions given by this com
mittee we chose lavender and white to
lead the way.
Then an idea to get all the four classes
to adopt a plan for the rotation of class
colors grew uAtil it was finally present

with the help of Miss Ipock. Under this
plan the Senior Class each year would
pass its colors on to the incoming Fresh
