Class History - Senior Class of 1947
Twelve years ago in the nineth month of the year 1935, we seniors began our years of study which has brought us where we are tonight. There were three of us who are still members of the class that were in the first grade under the dirction of Mrs. Jeffus. These ane Nelle, Donald and Pat.
Our second year with Mrs. Lamar Miller was very interesting. We learned to write and to carry books home from school. There always were enough of us in the cloakroom to have a class because every time we talked we were sent to the cloakroom.
In the third grade a new pupil joined. This was Marilyn Hartsfield, who came from Hinson. Miss Christine Sappington had a time that year getting us to take our books home, especially Pat who had to have two arithmetic classes every day.
During our fourth year Miss Eleanor Lee was our teacher. Va. Dunnavant entered our class from California. We were getting bigger now and Miss Lee had the idea that we shouldn't talk so much. As a means of punishment we had to write dictionary pages. When school was out that year so many of us had dictionary pages to write. Miss Lee followed us into the fifth grade. There we added more dictionary pages to the ones we already had.
Mrs. Matau Smith was our teacher in the sixth grade. Deede Robertson joined us from St. Petersburg that year. We had lost some of our members during the last few years, but when school was out that year quite a few were left behind. We felt sorry for them because they wanted to walk up the stairs with us. We thought walking up the stairs was something big then, but now since we have walked them for six years we don't think much of it. Mr. Walker was our teacher in the seventh grade and now we can understand why he had to resort to throwing erasers and chalk. During the second semester Ross Ellwood enrolled in our class from New York.
Four boys joined our class in the eighth grade. These were Emory Moore, Foster Lashley, Gene Leverett and Kenneth Martin. The first impression Kenneth had of Marilyn then was a giggle.
Miss Pittman was rather rough on us that year, especially with the paddle.
Fred Joiner entered our class the ninth year from Concord. Miss Campbell was our home room teacher. Mr. Walker left to join the Navy and Mrs. D. Weatherly taught us the rest of the year. That Christmas Mr. Burns got tangled up in the angels' hair on our Christmas tree.
Aside from the fact of having us in algebra Mrs. Daniels had to look at us as her home room pupils. She must really have suffered trying to teach us what "x" was known as. She must have given up for I'm sure some of us still look blank when "x" is mentioned. Montez Haskins joined our class that year.
Our eleventh year was our hardest and our happiest year. Working in bookkeeping and geometry we thought we would never pass the eleventh grade. Toward the end of the year when we had the Junior play and gave the Seniors an all day picnic at Wakulla Spings, we felt better about the whole year.
Then came the day when all became Seniors. But we didn't act like Seniors. In fact Seniors are supposed act dignified and we acted every way but dignified. We were in some sort of trouble all the time. At Christmas Mrs. Truluck left us and Mrs. Helen Lester taught us the rest of the year.
Those two arithmetic classes didn't seem to help Pat with his physics.
At this time we wish to thank the ones who entertained us during our Senior year. Our thanks goes to all of our grade mothers for the progressive supper and the picnic at Lake Bradford, Frances Powell for a chicken supper, Mrs. Beningfield and Mrs. Haskins for a formal dance, and Mrs. Marvin Miller for a Coca-Cola party.
This is just some of the facts of the past history of the Seniors of '47. but I'm sure the Seniors will make history that will be more happy and successful.
Teachers, Parents, and friends, it is my privilege tonight to welcome you to our graduation exercises and to extend to you the compliments of the Class of 1947. It is impossible to tell you how glad we are to have you with us tonight. This in one of the highlights in our lives--one for which we have long worked and one we shall forever remember as a bright spot.
Although it is the end of our life at Havana High School, it is just the beginning of a much greater career, one which would not be a success without the good foundation secured through our years of training. We are wearing the crown of graduation tonight because we did have the right beginning and because we have parents who realized the importance of education and the value of sending us to school every day.
We realize that we are entering into a large society known of its sorrow, joys and hopes. Though some of us may never have any further formal education, none of us will ever cease to learn. However, the education and experiences gained through twelve years of school will help us to overcome our sorrows, appreciate our joys and fulfill our hopes.
We all look to the future with bright hopes. Probably none of us will ever be in the highlights. This is not necessarily our ambition. We merely want to do our part for society while getting as much possible out of life. We expect to work for every bit of headway we make, for that will only make success the sweeter.
As we begin our program, we ask you to be glad for us. You have been untiring in your efforts and determination to struggle with us through the years. We deeply appreciate your interest and pride in us at this time. In behalf of my class, the student body of Havana High School and its faculty, I sincerely welcome each one of you.
Last Will and Testament
We, the Graduating Class of 1947, do will to the Junior Class of 1947, our ability to win the P. T. A. money, in hopes that they will have a few dollars in their treasury next year.
I, Marilyn Hartsfield, do will to Mary Ed Hartsfield and Betty Kelly, my giggles so that they may keep the hall ringing after I have gone.
I, Nelle Yawn, do will to Mary Love Nunn, my neatness in everything.
I, Deede Robertson, do will to Frances Powell, my cooking ability in hopes that when she gets married her husband won't go broke eating at cafes.
I, Virginia Dunnavant, hereby will to Martha Pearl Sanders my flirting ability in hopes that someday she will have nerve enough to look some boy in the eye.
I, Montez Haskins, do will to Barbara Powell my pleasing disposition in hopes that next year she will get along a little better with some of the pupils.
I, Kenneth Martin, do hereby will to David Burns my ability to play the bass horn that some day he will not have to practice every morning before school.
I, Emory Moore, do will to Bobby Miller my physics brains so that next year he may work tests without craining his neck trying to see someone else's paper.

I, Gene Leverett, do will to Howard Gray my neat appearance.
I, Fred Joiner, do will to Jimmie Boynton my secret of keeping my hair combed. It's really simple; all you need is hair, hair tonic, comb, and a little spare time.
I, Foster Lashley, do will to Earl Ferrell, my ability to arrive last for school, and yet have an excuse which sounds good enough to get me by.

Mrs. D. P. Lee, of Havana, announces the marriage of her daughter, Mildred Lee Schimpff, to James H. Scudder, of Durham, N. H., on May 10, 1947. The ceremony was performed in the presence of a few friends and relatives at the home of the groom's sister, Mrs. Francis Robinson, in Durham. Mr. Scudder was attended by his brother in law, Francis Robinson, and the bride's daughter, Barbara Schimpff, was her mother's only attendant. The couple is honeymooning in New England and will make their home later in Coverton, Va. Mrs. Scudder will be remembered as the author of the recent book, "The Invisible Sun."
|Hobson Alewine's Song 'My Florida" Published
"Living in Florida" inspired Hobson Alewine to write and publish "My Florida," a song extolling the virtues and assets of the state of Florida, which hits the newsstands and music houses this week throughout the state. This is not the first published music of the well known Havana resident, as early in his musical career he authored the music for a number of church songs.
Mr. Alewine was born in Tallapoosa, Ga., and moved to Havana in 1926 when he purchased and has run until recently Alewine's Drug Store. Music has long played an important role in his life, though in the past few years it has been relegated to the status of a hobby.
Before he came to Havana Hobson played in bands and orchestras all over the United States from 1919 to 1923. He was also a member of the Havana Police Band in 1924 and 1925.
"My Florida" was copyrighted by the writer a little over a year ago and is now out in attractive sheet music form in four colors. The front depicts a typical Florida woodland scene, the interior is taken from a section of Miami Beach and blended into the background of the music and words, and the back carried a half dozen pictures in color of Florida scenic spots, superimposed on a skyblue background.
Many residents of this community have had the pleasure of previously hearing "My Florida" and will welcome the opportunity to add it to their musical repetoire.

|Vacation Bible Schools Have Large Attendance
The Vacation Bible Schools, conducted by the Baptist and Methodist Churches of this community, got off to a fine start last Monday when the children registered for the Bible study courses and paraded through the city following the registration. The parade was headed by the high school band, and, but for blue Monday and the threatening showers, the children would have had a much larger audience than they did.
Miss Ruth Moore, principal of the Methodist school which meets Monday through Friday from 8:45 to 11:45 a. m., said that she was pleased with the size of the enrollment and the splendid cooperation of the workers.
In the Methodist school Mrs. Ed Bell, R. R. Gregory and J. W. Sapp have charge of the beginners group, ages four to five years. The primary instructors are Mesdames Duncan Lester, Winnie Tilford, Warren Lester and B. E. Leverett, and their charges are from six to eight years of age.

Willingham, principal, had a total enrollment of 113 last Monday and the departments are headed as follows: The beginners, Mrs. Bob Ellinor; The primary group, Mrs. Eula Perry, and the junior group, Mrs. Willingham.

Ninety per cent of the proceeds are retained in the local post's special welfare fund to aid needy veterans and their fmailies in this area, and the remaining ten per goes to the VFW National Orphanage at Eaton Rapids.
Buy a Poppy this Saturday!

|Greensboro Raps Rappers For 6-3 Win on Home Grounds
Greensboro broke the winning streak of the league leading Havana Rappers last Tuesday night when they chalked up a 6-3 win for Havana's first defeat of the season.
A disastrous second inning streak of wildness when (Harold "Red") Bert walked three men, following a safe hit, coupled with a costly error, enabled the Greensboro team to put the game on ice by pushing four unearned runs across.
J. (Jack) Bert, the first man up for the Rappers, banged out a home run to give the Havana boys an early lead while Harrison and Dan Miller garnered a single a piece on the offerings of Bryant. Harrison's single drove in two runs to complete the scoring and hitting for the visiting team.
Independents Win Over P-E's
The Independents team defeated the Pres.-Epis. combination last Thursday evening 9 to 3. Although outhit 9 to 8 Wright of the Independents managed to keep the offerings of his strong arm well scattered. Bassett, first sacker for the winners, garnered a home run in the last frame with three on, batting .750 per cent. Watson, with three official trips to the plate, collected two hits. Manager Wright went the route while the pitching assignment for the P-Es was divided between Taylor and Godwin. Taylor was charged with the loss.
Manager Fred Shelfer of the P-Es batted two for three, one of them being a smashing triple into deep left in the fourth frame. Cary Webb, roaming out gardner for the losers, played errorless ball accepting 6 chances while batting .333 for the game.
Baptists Defeat Greensboro
In what might be termed the best softball game to date in the local league last Thursday night saw the Baptist team win over Greensboro by the narrow margin of 3 to 2. Opposing each other on the mound, Mears, of the Baptist, allowed 4 hits while Bryant, of the losing team, was offering the winners no more. B. Clark, of the Baptist, getting two for two, one a double in the 5th with two on, lead the hitting for the winners.
Perkins, Greensboro's catcher, sent a homer into deep left in the first frame, scoring one run ahead of him. C. Rowan, for the losing team, batted .666 for the game. A fast double play by the Greensboro combination, Green to B. Rowan to Smith, in the 4th, provided a fielding thrill.
