DEDICATION

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 1952.

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.

Class Will – We, the Seniors of Barry High School, Class of 1952, being of sound mind (?) and body, will to the people who will following our steps as Seniors in the coming years-

James Coker  wills to Don Parks his ability to be loud in class and wart the teachers.

Naomi Henderson wills to Glenda Farmer her ability to play basketball and all her troubles.

Jack Harris wills to Ray Dillard his ability to comb his hair and wear his basketball suit to the ball games.

Margaret Moore wills to Syble Bowling her ability to make good grades and her brother, Lewis.

Jerry Grimmett  wills to Paul “Wimp” Childress the ability to grow whiskers and the habit of shaving every day of the week.
