Tracks of the Richwood Tiger
Lockers


1964, pages 88-89

Of course, the halls were the place where conversations took place between classes.

They were lined with a home base for each student, known as a locker.

Some students had to double up and share a locker.  But according to the daily schedule I kept for my senior year, I had one all to myself, for which I paid a 50¢ deposit.  It was locker 332 and the lock's combination was 8-10-4.  (I suppose it's safe to divulge that now.)

PET PEEVES:  CRISS SOMERLOT
Warm water in the drinking fountains

It all came to an end for us in May of 1965.  The final edition of Tigrtrax closed with these words from yearbook editors Dianne Steele and Mary Jo Fetter, followed by the picture below:

Never again shall the Richwood High School Alma Mater roll from the Tiger’s lips.  Never again shall the Tiger stand victorious upon the Richwood Memorial Field, for Tigertown is now a memory, a memory meaningful only to those who understood what Tigertown really was.  The years spent within Tigertown’s walls are over.  However, fond memories will linger forever in the hearts of all who lived there, although Tigertown sleeps.

1965, page 90

When the cares of life o’ertake us
Mingling fast our locks with gray,
Should our dearest hopes betray us
False fortunes fall our way,
Still we’ll banish cares and sadness
As we turn our memories back
And recall those days of gladness
‘Neath the Orange and the Black.
