DEDICATION – To show our
appreciation for understanding, patience, and guidance, we, the
students of Barry High School, dedicate this 1951-52 edition of
the Eagle to Mr. J. W. Allen, our coach.
PURPOSE OF THE YEARBOOK –
This book was produced to give you the best book of memories we
as a few students could possibly give. It was our purpose to
record the events of the school year in such a way as to keep
these memories for years to come. This book is not without error
nor does it include all the memories you may have but it does
represent a cross section of our school life as it existed in

Senior Class Prophecy – My
goodness! How time changes everything! By a method, known only
to me, I took a look into the future. Maybe I can share some of
the scenes with you.
Naomi Henderson, who said
that she would never leave the farm, has married and has 17
children on a five acre farm.
Margaret Moore, who was to
be married in August, 1952, is still wearing that Hubbard jacket
and is still hoping.
James Coker, whose rich
uncle died and left him five million dollars in 1962, is now
fighting to stay out of the poorhouse.
Jack Harris, in 1962 is
still driving his beat-up Nash all over the state of Texas
looking for the right girl.
Jerry Grimmett, soon after
graduating from school, went to work at the R.C. plant, putting
in his 10 hours a day. By the way he is still borrowing money
from Clyde to buy gas for the ’36.
