DEDICATION


TO OUR PARENTS



To you who have made it possible for us to be what we are
today, and for what we will be in the future.
For giving us homes to live in, paying the bills,caring for
us when we were sick, providing the transportation we needed
so often, sharing our joys and our sorrows, guiding us, who
needed guiding so much, trying to build within us a sense of
responsibility, helping to train us for the life ahead, teaching
us a reverence for God and loving us in spite of everything.
We, the Seniors of P. K. Yonge, dedicate this, the 1954
YOUNGSTER.

LAST Will AND [TESIAMENT


TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Article I
We, the members of the Senior Class of 1954, being of some body and never mind, do hereby declare this to be
our Last Will and Testament.

Article II
We, the Senior Class, give and bequeath to the P.K. Yonge Laboratory School, whose hallowed halls we have
plastered with misspelled posters, our everlasting gratitude and best wishes for a happy twentieth birthday.
We, the Senior Class, give and bequeath to the Juniors the front seats in the auditorium (try and keep the Fresh-
men out) and Gibson and McEntee, Inc. (you'll soon find out).
We, the Senior Class, give and bequeath to the Sophomores our Senior Privileges, which is absurd, because you
have more than we do.
We, the Senior Class, give and bequeath to the Freshmen that feeling of Sophomore superiority and then the
subsequent misery of being Juniors.
We, the Senior Class, give and bequeath to the Junior High our recently acquired definition of Core, so they'll
know what it's all about.
We, the Senior Class, give and bequeath to Robert Elmo Gibson an assignment -- a ninety-nine page term paper
on "How to Produce Hypertension and Schizophrenia in High School Seniors. "
We, the Senior Class, give and bequeath to William James McEntee free dancing lessons at Arthur Murray's and
a dose of "groupness" for the Juniors.

Article III
We, the Senior Class, give and bequeath the following priceless possessions, with permission for the recipients
to burn, bury, or pawn.

I, Pat Anchors, give and bequeath my ability never to be in class to Shirley Haven. Maybe she can use the time
better elsewhere.
I, Vern Andrews, give and bequeath my baton and strutt to Inez Hare, knowing that the extra baton is all she needs.
I, Allan Baer, give and bequeath my skill in carrying on back row conversations in American Literature class to
Buddy Alday.

OF THE CLASS OF '54


With another year to go--who knows.
I, Walter Godwin, would give and bequeath my physique and artistic ability to Tommy Salt, but he's supplied with
these and all he needs is my reputation as a Cassanova.
I, Ann Gracy, give and bequeath the lock and key to my four-wheeled "lunchtime lounge" to Cay Murphree, who
has the same problem I have.
I, Billy Gray, give and bequeath my nickname, "Little Thrill, to Bernie Herschi, hoping he can live up to my
standards.
I, Mary Charles Garrett, give and bequeath my class ring to Dottie Douglas, knowing it will fit better than Harry's.
I, Charlotte Halverson, give and bequeath my stringed bass to Mary Hershi, hoping itwon'tbe "too much"forher.
I, Don Harrell, give and bequeath myhephip to Carol Congleton. Funny thing--hers never seems to get out of joint.
I, Paul Harvey, give and bequeath my openmindedness to Sally Bingham, in order to slow her down somewhat.
I, Nanette Haviland, give and bequeath my famous wit to Lexyne Clyatt, who is already half of one.
I, Russell Henderson, give and bequeath my freckles and a year's supply of grease paint to Ann Harris.
I, Arthur Holmes, who henceforth wish to be called by that name, give and bequeath my nickname, "Tiger, to
Mullett, the poor fish.
I, Mary Birdie Howard, give and bequeath the toothpicks I use to keep my eyes open in school to Louise Loften,
who already has too much to make her sleepy.
I, David Kidd, give and bequeath my interest in the eighth grade to Phil Larson, despite those inevitable cries of
"Unfair to Senior Girls. "
I, Donna Killinger, give and bequeath the key of the concession stand and all that goes with it to Gail Kite-Powell
and know that she will gladly leave it to someone next year when she graduates.
I, Rufus Kite-Powell, give and bequeath the title Hershel Markham left me--"God's Gift to Women"--to Richard
Smith.
I, Suzanne Latimer, giveandbequeath mynatural blondhair to Larea Zimmerman, who is "dying" to be a blond.
I, Robert Little, give and bequeath my baritone uke to Roger Foote hoping that its mellow tones will nullify
the opposite effect of Roger's voice.
I, Dickie Mann, give and bequeath my ability to "tackle without offensive holding" to Putnam Crabtree (! ).
I, Jack May, give and bequeath my repertoire of anecdotes to Paul Hunter. He'll either be ambitious enough to
bring them up out of the gutter or lazy enough to drop down there with him.
I, Ann Morgan, give and bequeath my column with its gossip, news, and headaches to Phyllis Lagasse.
I, Joe Morgan, give and bequeath the great affection all the teachers have for me to Jimmy Gormsen. This is one
case where inheritance tax will be appreciated.
I, Bernie Parrish, give and bequeath my negative attitude to Sammy Gray. Maybe we'll cancel each other out.
I, Delmer Sheffield, give and bequeath my siren (noise-maker, that is) to "sound effectors" in general and Don
Kluge in particular.
I, Jean Shultz, give and bequeath my rubber jaws to Sara Belle Arnett.
I, Eddie Smith, give and bequeath my slowness of speech and movement to Mary Wilson so that she will neither
need an interpreter nor find herself in the middle of next week.

at P. K. who can dance.
I, James Sutton, give and bequeath my talent with a guitar to Thomas Boyd.
I, Harry Swilley, give and bequeath my 'LilAbner look to Betsy Merchant to go with her resemblance to Daisy Mae.

steal a pillow from someone else.
I, S.A. Thompson, give and bequeath my basketball skill to Bob Cherry so P.K. can stay victorious.
I, Billy Weaver, give and bequeath my Senior Privileges to the Juniors. Oh well, who cares about the Juniors any
way.
I, Don Wilcox, give and bequeath my ability to attract attention by not wearing a belt to Riley Blitch.
I, Lila Williams, give and bequeath my success in spinster roles to Pat Halverson. It won't bother her, and Iwant
to get rid of it.
I, Jay Wimberly, selfishly give and bequeath my enormous fan club of eighth and ninth grade girls to Joe Wise,
knowing he won't want them and I can keep them, along with their sponsor, Mr. Hal Riehle.
I, Willard Wolfe, give and bequeath my appreciation for the three B's--Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms--to
Barbara Lewis who no doubt has three of her own--boys, boys, and boys.
I, Jack McKinney, give and bequeath my eye for diamonds to Sylvia Jones so she can pick her best friend with
confidence.
I, Marlene Roberts, give and bequeath my curly brown tresses to Jo Anne Hill, who really doesn't need them.
