Junior Class History
Attention Dear Readers....

     The history of the 1925-26 Junior Class is now before you.  Up to the present time the Juniors have been very reticent concerning the history of our class.  Not because of shame on our part but because of modesty.  In fact we were at first dubious whether to reveal our remarkable past or not.  But knowing that the Dosta would not be a success without our history (?) we have decided to give you the barest facts in the simplest form.
     So, gentle readers, our past is now revealed in which you will find the most wonderful achievements, the highest honors, and the most remarkable accomplishments of any group of people in the World; and that is not conceit, only self respect.
    At the close of the seventh year of Junior Hi our future as a class was rose-colored, with now and then a golden light shining through.  The cause of this rosy appearing future was the fact that we were going to enter V.H.S.  But, alas, our air castles were doomed to be torn down.  For on the first day we were sadly disillusions.  We were thoroughly and efficiently ragged by the Sophomores.  Nevertheless in spit of the ragging and the strange environment we were determined to accomplish great things.  As a result six Freshman names appeared on the honor roll.  They were Will Campbell, Frances Cleveland, Mildred Posey, Louise Johnson, Melba Young and John Winn.
     At the beginning of the Sophomore year we had the Lion's share ragging the Freshmen; in fact, the Juniors and the Seniors were left in the cold to a certain extent.
     The novelty soon wore off, however.  Then we turned our brilliant mental abilities to loftier things.  Behold the result:  In the eleventh District High School Meet we represented the school in four of the contests as follows:  music, debate, essay and pole vault.  The representatives were Melba Young, Marguerite Langdale, and "Bubber" McGowan.  Needless to say they did extremely well and won many points for V.H.S.
    At the end of this year the class had a large number of its members on the honor roll.  They were, Virginia Jones, Frances Cleveland, Mildred Posey, Joe Watts and Will Campbell.  Many of the Soph boys were awarded gold footballs at the end of the year for the [sic] stellar services.  They were as follows:  "Bubber" McGowan, John Winn, Harry Mixon and William Simmons.  In baseball we also had a number of candidates the most notable of whom were, A.D. Mullis, "Bubber" McGowan, George Everett, and Frank Garbutt.
     Now in our Junior year we have reached the acme of achievement in honor and service, but we hope to raise the standard and gain higher levels during our Senior year.  Our accomplishments are many and varied.  We have several of the best Varsity football men in our class, as those already mentioned.  Also we have the best cartoonist in V.H.S., Billy Haygood, who is a member of the Annual staff.
     Among the basketball players of the Junior class were Harry Mixson, John Winn, Jesse Davis and Joe Griffith and Julian Stovall.  They were all good players.  Among the girls were Mildred Posey, Grace Garrett, and Louise Johnson.  The captain of the baseball team is a Junior--George Everett; and its manager is another--John Winn.
     In the district meet this year the Junior class made a good showing.  Melba Young and Billy Haygood represented Dosta in ready writing and helped to make the good showing that we made in the meet.
     The Junior class possesses the handsomest boy in the form of A.B. Mullis.  The most timid is "Bubber" McGowan, and the best joke teller is Essie Frye Gibson.
     We think we have the best Junior class in the best school in the best town in the world.
