From the 1947 Fleming-Neon High School Yearbook
“For the first time since 1941 an annual is being sponsored by the senior class of Fleming High School. Realizing the difficulty of publishing an annual for the first time in several years and due to the shortage of printing material that still exists, our aim has been to give the student body the best that is humanly possible.”
Yearbook Dedication: To our sponsors, Mrs. William B. Hall and Mr. Roy T. Reasor, we dedicate this our 1947 Pirate, in appreciation of their patience, understanding and cooperativeness during this year’s work.
Memories — poignant and exciting — of your high school life and ours; dates that you’ll always cherish, thrilling games that you’ll never forget; teachers, classes, and clubs that enriched each day; and of friends that you’ll keep forever.
Some day, in future years, you will turn the pages of this book, and it will recall for you these treasured memories of your cherished Fleming High and the happy days you spent there. When that time comes, we shall have achieved our purpose.
A little thought, but a great truth
There is a certain time of the year when the leaves begin to fall, when you see flocks of birds on their long flight south, when the farmers gather in their summer’s work. Then is the happiest time of all. The frost on the ground begins to fall, and we give thanks to God of all, thanks for the harvest which decides life or death, thanks to God, for America is blessed. While enjoying all this, we should remember the other countries too; remember they get hungry the same as you.

Fleming beat the Way- land team on Wayland’s home grounds last Friday by a score of 20 to 0. This game was well played and the Wayland team although this being their first year showed the visitors that they would not take it lying down, and put up a good fight until the referee’s whistle blew at the end of the game. Fleming players stated that if it had not been a muddy field the score would have been much larger.
