FALLEN WARRIOR - Mr. Hoyle Pennington
Former mathematics teacher at Central High School, died October 19th in
Southaven, MS. A complete obituary may be seen here on the Central web

MEMORIES – Miss Martha Wallace (as told to Bob Pepper)
In addition to being the girls’ physical education teacher, I also assisted in
other, unrelated activities, one of which was the school’s theatrical productions. 
One play called for a student to dress as SIVAD (The host of a local TV
station’s Saturday night fright flick. That part was created and played by Watson
Davis, whose last name is SIVAD spelled backward). In the Central play, Finley
Brown was the chosen actor. The bit called for Sivad to exit a casket dressed in
his typical vampire attire. Problem was, we didn’t have a casket. Finley said we
could borrow one from, I think it was, the First Assembly of God Church on
Highland. We didn’t have a pickup truck, so Finley, another student and I took
my station wagon. To accommodate the casket, I had to fold down one side of
the back seat. We loaded the casket, and Finley jumped into the other back seat.
As we drove west on Summer Ave., I began to notice that the other traffic traveling
west would slow and stare at us. This continued for a few miles before I turned to
check the rear of the station wagon. There sat Finley beside the casket, wildly
gesturing to passing cars with my folding shovel that he found in the back seat.

(Miss Wallace would greatly appreciate hearing from her former students, most of
whom she still remembers. Her address and phone number can still be found in
the ” 62-63 Hello CHS”, 1546 Monroe Ave. Memphis, 38104. BR6-3145)
