(Does anyone remember Morris McClary coming in the first day yelling: "POPCORN, PEANUTS, CRACKER JACK!"??)

My first traumatic experience in school was when Miss Beckler didn't like the fact that I wasn't eating all that nasty food they served in the cafeteria. She made me get up from my seat (with all my friends around), she sat down, sat me in her lap and force-fed me prunes! (I still hate prunes!)

Special memories of my 5th grade class.................

We were MEAN that year! I remember...........
Morris Cronan (I think) would squat down, take several deep breaths, jump up and blow hard on his thumbs. It would make him pass out. (Once he hit the pencil sharpener when he went down and got a big cut on his head.)
Miss Fannie Marie checking the roll in the mornings and immediately leaving to go smoke in the teachers' lounge all day!
Miss Fannie Marie going straight to the lounge and not even calling the roll some mornings.
Miss Fannie Marie missing most of the year and our tormenting the substitutes.
Throwing spitwads while a helpless substitute pleaded for us to stop as they filled the air. (It looked like a scene from a movie.)
Miss Fannie Marie deciding to come back to school the next day and the janitors hadn't cleaned up the spitwads.
Miss Fannie Marie going ballistic over the hundreds of spitwads stuck all on the blackboard and in the Christmas baskets.
Miss Fannie Marie going down each row, asking each one of us: "Did you throw any spitwads?"
All the little "innocents" saying (in their sweetest voices): "Oh No, Miss Fannie Marie." (You know who you are, Morris!) (and you girls, too!)
Me, Wendale Lillard and Herschel Cruze being the only ones punished for throwing the 1 million spitwads.
Miss Fannie Marie unfortunately deciding she was too mad to paddle us and sending us to the office.
Lynn Bates making us bend over his desk and his using both hands on his baseball bat-like custom-made paddle.
My butt being BLACK for two weeks. (Maybe we confessed to killing someone for the beating we got!?!?!?!?!)
Realizing the the rumor that stated: "After the first lick, your butt goes numb and you don't feel the others" was NOT true.
Wendale and I getting our eight (8) brutal licks each and then watching Herschel get his. (Heck, he watched us!) lol
Herschel's first lick making a big THUD sound.
Mr. Bates yelling: "GET THAT OUT OF THERE!"
Herschel pulling a book out of his pants. (Why didn't I think of that??????)
Herschel getting eight (8) licks and then an "extra lick"  for the book.
All the "little innocents" giggling when we came back and gingerly sat down.
Being afraid to tell Mom & Dad (because my butt couldn't risk their "....you'll get another whipping when you get home!") threat.

The REAL Story about our infamous 8th Grade trip:

Every year the 8th grade went to Nashville (until we did, that is).

I remember at the first "pit stop" R.L. Denny spent all his money on a toy spigot that he stuck to his forehead. Someone yanked it off and broke it. (The teachers chewed us out for "letting him spend his money"!?!?!?)

We went to the Grand 'ol Opry. I remember looking over and there stood Col. Sanders right beside us. In a few minutes he went on stage and did a commercial for Kentucky Fried Chicken live. Who all performed? George Hamilton IV and Skeeter Davis? and ?????

When we went to the Hermitage Hotel, Jerry Richardson and I roomed together. We were all given strict orders to stay in our rooms, but........  Jerry and I went down to Morris & Buddy's room. A bunch of us played "penny poker" 'til way in the morning. (Around 3:00 AM) When we  were walking back to our room, Jerry Blackwell was in the hall beating on his door. He said his roommates (Burr-Ray) had locked out of his room, so we took pity and let him in ours. (Bad move.) I remember him raising the window, sitting in it and yelling "HEYYYYYY!" at people down on the street. After a while the phone rang and I answered it. The man said: "This is the manager! Get your stuff together as I'm coming up to escort you out of the hotel!" I was stunned and just sort of  put the receiver back on the hook. I  told Jerry what he had said. In a minute it rang again and I made Richardson answer it that time. It was the manager again and he chewed him out, saying something like: "YOU ANSWER ME WHEN I TALK TO YOU!" Jerry said: "Yes sir!", hung up and told me: "He chewed me out because you didn't answer him!"  (I still think that was funny.)

Blackwell booked out of there and beat on his roommates' door. (Wouldn't you know it, they let him in that time!) 

The manager came up with the teachers. He said there had been a disturbance in our room all night. I started to protest that we'd been in Morris' room, but didn't when I thought it would get them in trouble. He walked us down to the lobby. We had to sit in the cold lobby all night. The teachers were mad and threatened to send us to the school board. (I remember they bought water guns and sprayed us on the ride back when we tried to sleep.)
I think ours was the last 8th grade trip to Nashville and everyone said it was our fault! 


Another 8th grade memory: The SPELLING BEE was the same day as EIGHT GRADE DAY (the day we got to go check out the high school). BUT, my teachers forced me to be in the bee because I was such a good speller. (I didn't want to be in it!) So.......... I spelled my first word: A-C-C-R-O-S-S . "ENNNK" (buzzer sound) "Wrong, it's A-C-R-O-S-S". "See ya teach!" and I was off to check out the high school.

TODAY'S TEEN-AGERS
(as originally printed in the October 1969 CHILHOWEE STAR)

Are the teen-agers
of today wilder than
their parents were at
a comparable age --
or are they just
getting more public
attention? I have
heard this question
asked frequently,
particularly asked by
adults. Parents
usually put it like
this: "Are the teens
of today worse than
we were when we were
their age?"
I don't like the
word "worse". The
teens of today are
different than teen-
agers of thirty years
ago. The teens of to-
day get into trouble
just the same as they
did thirty years ago
-- but into more
serious trouble, and
at an earlier age
than ever before.
More than any
single factor in the
past thirty years, the
automobile, h a s
exerted the strongest
force on teen-age be-
havior. Millions of,
teens own cars, and
those who don't can 
usually get one with-
in a half hours notice.
A car today
is more than just a
means or transportation
it is a status symbol,
and a passport to
freedom. Six gallons
of gas can propel a
couple or teen-agers
into another world.
When Webster
defines the word teen 
as the number or
years between 13 and
19, he leaves much un-
said. The teen-agers
or today know that
what a person does,
acts, and how he be-
haves as a teen-ager,
will determine what
kind of person he
will be as an adult.
A wild generation!
No, a troubled one,
struggling not only
with the problems
of growing up, but
with the added pres-
sures of the space .
age. A generation,
forced to live in a
world it never made.
But what generation
ever made the world
it came into?

ALMA MATER

 

Where the peaks of old Chilhowee rear against the sky

Proudly stands our Alma Mater as the years go by

Forward ever be our watchword conquer and prevail

For our hearts will love thee ever, Polk County hail

Green the boughs that rustle 'round thee on the stately crest

Dearer is our memory of thee, Alma Mater blest


 

Who remembers the Trip to the Atlanta Zoo? (1970?)

My memories of Willie B., the famous gorilla in the Atlanta Zoo: (Willie B died in 2000.)
Willie B. was in a big, tall room that only had glass or Plexiglas on the front, bars across the top (where a big tire was suspended from a log chain) and solid walls on the back and sides. Willie B. would hook his arm in the tire and run around the room until he got fast enough to swing around on the tire in big circles. He would turn loose and run down the glass from left to right and give the glass a big forearm smash before he crashed into the wall in the corner. Kids would scream and we would laugh.

Once we were teasing Willie B. by beating our chests and acting like monkeys. He came up and punched the glass with an overhand right that Ali would've been proud of. It made a terrible, crashing sound and the entire huge glass wall swayed in and out. We though he was gonna break it and come kill us. It looked like a scene in a horror movie. People were screaming and running away, knocking others down as they retreated. I just stood there in amazement.

There was a small door made of what looked like jail cell bars on the right side up at the front. A scale platform was on the floor in that corner and a zoo keeper came up, reaching through the bars to put bananas and fruit on the platform. (I guess he was trying to get Willie B. on the scale so we could see how much he weighed.) Willie B. was just sitting right at the glass, facing us and was about 15-20 feet from the scale. He acted like he was ignoring the zoo keeper, but I saw him keep cutting his eyes over at the guy. The zoo keeper started trying to slide them further over towards Willie B., trying to entice him over. Once as he was reaching through the bars as far as he could, Willie leapt over there like a flash and grabbed that guys arm. Willie B. had the poor guy's arm and was pulling on it hard. Willie B. was laughing (it looked and sounded like laughing) and jumping up and down as he pulled on the poor guy's arm. (I thought he was going to pull his arm off!) The helpless guy's face was smashed up against the bars. Finally some more zoo keepers rushed over there and Willie B. turned him loose. (that guy was lucky he had two arms when it was over.)

WANTED! More photos of this Tom Thumb Wedding production WANTED!

"TOM THUMB WEDDING" 1959?
(A play that I, and a lot of others in my class, were in in the 1st Grade!)

Tom Thumb was a world-famous midget with the Ringling Brothers Circus. At noon on February 10, 1863, the groom, Charles S. Stratton, known more popularly as General Tom Thumb, walked down the aisle 
with his bride, Lavinia Warren. The groom was only 33 inches tall and the bride a tad shorter.
Our "Tom Thumb Wedding" was a mock wedding to loosely recreate this event
and probably involved as many children as could be gotten together.

Below is a recreation of the mimeographed program of our event.
(I always loved to smell mimeograph tests for some reason.)

Again..... Can anyone find me a picture of our play????
