- According to interview of Mrs. Hazel Ledford, 92 years old in 2012 in phone interview 3/25/2012, Evelyn was the youngest member of the graduating class of 1937 of Somerset High School. Hazel Ledford was the class of 1937 president. She said there had been dispute for years over who was the youngest of the class and Hazel said she determined it was Evelyn. I think it was 1937 and not class of 1936.

Two Somerset young people were injured seriously and three others were hurt when an auto- mobile in which they were re- turning here from Lexington left the highway three miles south of Eubank about 1 o?clock Monday morning and turned over.
The most seriously hurt was Betty Thurman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Vic Thurman. She sus- tained two crushed vertebra. She was removed from Somerset Gen- eral Hospital to the Good Samari- tan Hospital in Lexington, and reports of her condition are satis- factory.
Merle Cook, son of Mr. and Mrs. T.V. Cook, received a fractured skull, cuts on both wrists, and nu- merous other minor wounds.
The less seriously injured were Evelyn Curtis, Juanita Kidd and Glenn Curtis. The victims were not picked up immediately due to light traffic at that hour of the morning, but were found about 2 a.m. and brought directly to the hospital by a passerby.
