COPYRIGHT, APRIL, 1925. ROY PROPS ' !’ Editor EUGENE FUNDERBURK, Manager The Pioneer VOLUME TWO The Year Book Published by the Class of 1925 KANNAPOLIS HIGH SCHOOL Kannapolis, North Carolina Four Central High School Building FOREW ORD A S the little papoose brings back memories of our Freshman days; the boy learning to hunt reminds us of the time when we, as Sophomores, learned High School ground more thoroughly; the young warrior wooing his Indian maid, makes us remember our Junior days when our minds sometimes strayed from scholarly facts; and the Indian Chief greeting the Pioneer brings thoughts of when we will go out into the world; we hope that this book will remind you, too, of our happy life, as we grew together at Kannapolis High School. Five To MISS FRANCES WOOD Who has been loyal and considerate to us as a teacher; who has worked faithfully toward the furtherance of all our school activities; and to whose efforts is largely due the success of our High School Annual, we, the class of nineteen hundred and twenty-five dedicate this volume of the Pioneer.

J. SHARP, Chairman J. B. Goodnight A. V. Sloop F. U. ROGERS, Secretary J. R. Rutlege H. B. McCombs The High School Building The school administration began an agitation for a new building back in the summer of ’22. The school authorities were shown the need by reason of the necessary use of many outside cottages. Finally, the county board and the local authorities came to an agreement by the good offices cf Mr. John J. Blair, state supervisor of buildings; whereby Mr. Lewis H. Asbury, Charlotte architect, submitted a plan of a structure very popular all over the state — the E plan to which additions may be easily made when necessary in the future. The front down stairs comprises four rooms, principal’s office, and teacher’s rest room, upstairs, four rooms and spacious library. Across the seven foot hall are four rooms and auditorium down stairs, and up stairs, five rooms occupied by the Science and Home Economics departments. These departments are fully equipped with standard Kewannee-made apparatus, tables and sinks with gas and water con- nections. The entire building is heated by steam. The north end of the building is on the side of a hill making it possible to have three school rooms nearly on the surface. All stairs are reached by absolutely fire proof stair towers at each end of the building. Under the auditorium is ample space for the addition of Industrial Arts, Carpentry, and Printing Department. The principal’s office is equipped with a filing cabinet, desk, and signal clock. The Cannon Manufacturing Company, the largest manufacturers of towels in the world, is wonderfully and adequately providing school facilities for the children of its operators and citizens of the community and surrounding country. W. J. SLOAN, Superintendent. Nine K. H. S. Songs 1. Down in K. H. S. where the pep is high, They say it is so high it sometimes touches the sky. There’s something about it that’s different from the rest And it calls from us our best. Chorus You ought to be way down in K. H. S. They got the things that sho’ are best. They got the rep, They got the pep, They got the high-faluting spirit that makes ’em step. They got the name, They got the fame, And they can win in any game. If you’re high-faluting, rooting, tooting. And you want to see some shooting, Come to K. H. S. 2. (Tune: Washington and Lee Swing.) When K. H. S. and her hoys step in line, We’re going to win again, another time And for Maroon and Black we’ll yell, yell, yell, And for old K. H. S. we’ll yell, we’ll yell, we’ll yell! So just keep up your spirits ever true And all the world will come out right for yru, And we will always love and back you up, Back you up! K. H. S.! 3. High School spirit never dead, High School’s gonna win again. Shoot ’em in the eye and knock ’em in the head, High School’s gonna win again. Chorus I know it, Indeed I know it, Landis. I know it, High School’s gonna win again. Eleven Senior Class FLOWER: Chrysanthemum. COLORS: Gold and Black. MOTTO: “Esse quani Vidieri.” OFFICERS ROY PROF ST .

Roanoke, Va., June 20, 1935. Dear Nan : The time seems short when we think that ten years ago at “Old K. H. S.” you were secretary of our class, and manager of the girls Basket Ball team. Last night I heard the announcement over the radio that you were to dance, as a special number, at the Rialto Theatre, New York City. So at last you have reached your goal, for you always admired dancing. I am wishing you much success. Your Pal, Pearl.

Dear Margaret : It has been ten long years since I have heard the name “Mag” called ; do you re- member how we used to call you “Mag” ju t to tease you? I never shall forget how you used to beat down on the old piano in chapel, when no one else would play it. And all the work you did in helping to get out the “Pioneer” we never shall forget. I only wish we could all be back at K.H.S. once more. Your Pal, Alice. COY BEAVER Entered ’24, Cannon Literary Society ’25, Athletic Association, Subscription Editor of Pioneer ’25.

Dear Coy : I was lucky to get an American newspaper this morning and was thrilled when 1 saw a news item saying, “Mr. Coy Beaver, the worlds famos architect is busy drawing up plans for a two million dollar hotel to be located in the business section of Kannapolis, N C. Mr. Beaver is a graduate of Harvard Unix ersity.” When we were back in K. H. S. I always thought of you as an architect or a civil engineer. You could always work geometry so easily. Write me soon.

Dear Edna : It seems only yesterday that we sat in the class room and wondered when you recited why you had such a brilliant mind and we knew so little. I only wish we could be back together having t 1 ose “hard timss,” as we called them then. I am so glad you have found the work you like as supervisor of History at N. C. C. W. I wish you success.

Do you remember that line you wrote in my memory book ? I often turn back and read it. I am so glad you have kept up your sing- ing. I knew that some day you would succeed. s Here’s hoping that you will keep up your :ccess. Your school mate, Margaret.

Y., May 9, 1935. Dear Kat : No one would think that ten years had passed since we were in the Senior Class. I recall all of the good times we had at dear old K. H. S. When we gave plays, parties and went to “weinie roasts.” I was so glad to hear of your success as a dancer and wish you the very best of luck as you start on your tour to Europe. Lovingly yours, “Pike.” WILLIAM DAVIS IDELL CONNELL Tar Heel Society ’23, ’24, Cannon Society ’25, Monitor Cannon Society ’25, Glee Club ’24. Baltimore, Md., Jan. 8, 1935. Dear Idell : Just think it has been over ten years since I saw you, but as I sit here and read a book of poems you have written it brings ba ck memories of our school days in K. H. S. Do you remember the poem we had to write about the “Snow?” Then we thought Eng- lish, Geometry and Physics hard, but they were easy to what we have now. I wish you the greatest of success in the future. Your friend. Janie. Vice President Hi-Y ’24, Member of Aycock Literary Society ' 24, ’25, Sen- ior Class Vice President ’25.

Dear William: As I glance back over the space of time since we were members of the Senior Class of ’25 in K. H. S. it seems as a dream. Do you remember the day when you and I laid out of school and went boat riding ? I wish I had some of the old times to go over again and to be with my school mates once more. I am more than glad to know that you have invented perpetual motion. 1 highly congratulate you upon your success. Your old school mate. Coy Beaver.

Dear Gladys : Tonight I am thinking of the good times we had while in school. Do you remember our Halloween party ? I wonder what you are doing now. I heard you were teaching school at Greensboro. Why don’t you write and tell me all about yourself ? Sincerely your friend, -Ophelia. SADIE ELMA HARRIS San Diego, California, Jan. 25, 1935. Dear Sadie : I was looking through the “Kannapolis Star” this morning an item caught my eye. It read : “Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Harris wishes to announce the marriage of their daughter, Sadie Elma, to Lester Engene Funderburk, on January the eighth, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine.” I wish you a prosperous and happy life together. Your old friend, Virginia. LESTER EUGENE FUNDERBURK Entered ’20, Treasurer Athletic Asso- ciation ’25, Varsity Foot Ball ’25, Hi-Y ’22, ’23, Base Ball ’25, Pioneer Business Manager ’25. New York City, Jan. 2 1935. Dear Brix : It has been ten years since we were class mates in K. H. S. I can remember when you played center with the K.H.S. football team. You certainly did your part and always won the day. I was very glad indeed to learn that you have finished your law course and had started to practice. I am sure you will be successful. Your friend, Clarence. JANIE CELIA HARRIS Tar Heel Society ’22, ’23, Carolinean Society ’24, Philomathean Society ’25, Athletic Association ’25. Kannapolis, N. C., Jan. 8, 1935. Dear Janie: It has been a long time since I heard you speak of wanting to be a nurse. It only seems yesterday since I bade you bood-bye as you started away to enter training at John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, and now you are Head Nurse. Are you as “saucy” as ever ? I can remem- ber the day you cried about being the “sauciest” one of the class. Never the less your saucy ways have won for you many friends in old K. H. S. and I hope it will serve you on through life. Your friend, Idell.

Kannapolis, N. C., Jan. 5, 1935. Dear Alice: I shall never forget when you played basket ball, and when I used to tell you that some day you would be a good athletic director. You always were willing to do all you could for old K. H. S. In making sandwiches you were one of th“ best. Do you remember how well you sold them and how much it helped the annual? You were also manager of the foot ball team, and were always ready to take th? boys to the park every time there was a game. I only wish that 1 were back with all our old class mates. Wouldn ' t we have fun ? Your “Pal.” Margaret. PEARL E.

Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 30, 1935. Dear Pearl : Just think it has been ten years since you as captain of our Basket Ball team did more for the winning team of “K. H. S.” than any one of the other members. You remember the game we had with Barium “Hi?” Wasn’t that some game? I am delighted to hear that you are Physi- cal Director at Randolph Macon College. By your skillful training I hear the girls have won nine games out of ten. Wishing you great success in your work. Your old pal. Nan.

C., Jan. 1, 1936. Dear Gene : So at last you have achieved your life’s ambition. I always knew you would be a lawyer some day. For when we were class mates in K. H. S. you were always talking. As I was reading in the New York Times I saw where Eugene Peeler, formerly of Kan- napol ' s, North Carolina, was one of the great- est lawyers on the bench of New York City. I suppose that you are handsome as you were when we were classmates. I hope so, anyhow.

Kannapolis, N. C., Jan. 8, 1935. Dear Eve’yn : I was so glad to hear from you today. To be getting letters from an old K. H. S. class mate, reminds me of the days when we were all together planning our future. I was glad to hear that you were going to the Columbna University next summer. I d.d not think you would teach until I learned from Mable that you were teaching in Charlotte High School. I wish you the very best success throughout life. From your old friend, Virginia.

Kannapolis. N. C., May 15 1935. Dear Mildred: Just think ten years ago tonight we were bidding old K. H. S. farewell and in so doing we thought we were leaving all our hard times and worries behind. But now realize that those were the happy days, in which we were getting out of school to prepare for parties and entertainments, all for the sake of that beloved “Pioneer,” in which you were always in the lead — remember how you can- vassed the school and town for subscriptions. Best wishes for a successful year as Dean of Queen Col lege. Your friend, Irene. MOSEY REE REELE Entered ’24, Member of Cannon Lit- erary Society ’24, ’25, Page of Can- non Literary Society ’24, ’25.

As you know when we were together in the Senior Class of 1925 you were voted the laziest boy of the class, and it is a sur- prise, a gratifying surprise, to hear you are really working. Foot Ball was all you ever worked for in K. H. S. As the Southern comes through Detroit I hope you will swing off and come to see me. Always sincerely, Clement. MABEL ELIZABETH SIMS Cannon Literary Society ’25, Tar Heel Society ’24, Athletic Association ’24, Glee Club ’23. Asheville, N. C. May 9, 1935.

Baltimore, Md., May 10, 1935. Dear “Peke:” It has been a long time since I heard you as a song leader of our Senior class, get up before us and sing, tut as I sit and listen to you now over the radio it brings back memories of long ago. Edna, do you remember the times when you would pretend you were Galli-Curci sing- ing, and I would laugh at you ; I had no idea that you would be her superior some day, but I am glad you are. and I wish you all kinds of success. Your “pal,” Kat . Nineteen ANNIE HALL FLOW, Mascot of Class of 1925. THE GOLD AND BLACK VOL. I. KANNAPOLIS, N. C. 1940 GREAT TRAGEDY IN MISSIONARY News has just been re- ceived that Miss Irene Rum- ple has been convei’ted into stew by the Billiken Savages in Africa. Miss Rumple was touring that country distri- buting chewing gum and lecturing on “How to stay thin by perpetual motion.” News was sent to the Black and Gold by Chief Demon Rum by radio. This great tragedy has striken us all dumb. NEW HOTEL OPENED Miss Edna Brown has leased the new hotel, Sas- perilla, and opened for busi- ness yesterday. This is a model hotel provided with a bird bath, a refrigerating system, a maid for exercis- ing dogs and all the other modern inconveniences. Miss Brown is well qualified to run a hotel as she had much training at the famous Cline Boarding .House when only a child. It is said she often neglected her books to watch the cooks. FIRST WOMAN GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA Miss Evelyn Rumple of Kannapolis, N. C. has just been elected governor of North Carolina. During her campaign she has gained the support of all the parties. She is very skilled in the science of politics. It is now hoped that North Carolina will enter into an era of prosperity under the slogan, “Rumple for the People.” HOME RUN QUEEN SIGNS UP FAMOUS MANAGER Miss Pearl Maulden, world famous base ball player, to- day announced that she had signed up Ty Cobb as mana- ger of her team of young women, known as “The Ath- letic Amazons of America.” Miss Mulden knocked 666 home runs last year and is considered a marvel on the diamond. She is a native of North Carolina and her state is justly proud of her. MISS HARRIS MARRIES MR. SECHLER A social event of the win- ter season was the wedding of Miss Janie Harris and Mr. Ralph Sechler, which took place at the First Methodist church on October 1st. The church was beau- tifully decorated with squash vines and sunflowers. A en- joyable musical program was rendered before the proces- sion by Miss Iona Piano, ac- companied by Mr. Blow N. Wheeze on his harmonica. The first of the attendents to enter were the four ushers, Roy Propst, William Davis, Clement Smith and Coy Bea- ver. Next the bridesmaids in their lovely cheese cloth dresses and boquets of morning glories came down the aisle. Miss Edna Brown wore emerald green; Miss Emma Cline wore scarlet; Miss Mildred Rogers, yellow; Miss Virginia Wiggins, pur- ple. The mother of the groom acted as flower girl; the father of the bride, as ring- bearer. This little change from the usual custom was very charming. The maid of honor, Miss Kat Correll wore a gown of red, white and blue, and car- ried a boquet of cherries. Mrs. Eugene Funderburk, sister of the bride, was ma- tron of honor. She was love- ly in crimson and pink and carried hollyhocks. The bride entered in on the arm of her brother, who gave her away. She wore white which was charmingly set off by dashes of black, and black gloves and slippers. The happy young couple left for Iceland on a honey moon. After October 6th, they will be at home on 6666 New- lywed Street, Honeymoon Town. THE GOLD AND BLACK The BLACK AND GOLD is the Prophecy of the class of 1925. Eugene Peeler, Prophet. EDITORIAL Time does fly — if any of us have doubted this we will cease to do so from now on. This issue of the Gold and Black is for the purpose of showing what time has done for the members of the class of ’25. Some of the revela- tions of these pages are amazing. We are surprised to find what a crowd of fam- ous folk-to-be and rogues-to- be are gathered there in name. Most amazing of all, though, is the fact that none of this is true; that its all the prophecy of the class of 1925, a class which joyously sings, “Senior spirit never dead, Senior gonna win again. Knock ’em in the eye and hit ’em on the head! Senior gonna win again!” NEW EXCLUSIVE SCHOOL OPENED Under Guidance of Mildred Rogers, Ph. D. “Rough-and-Ready,” the new school opened by Miss Mildred Rogers, Ph. D., is sure to succeed. “Our policy,” says Dr. Rogers, “is to knock every- thing we can into the minds of the dear young people of today. Miss Rogers has the help of Miss Idelle Connell in her institute. Miss Connell will lecture on “Physics” and “Discipline.” MISS CONNELL LECTURES Miss Idell Connell is tour- ing the world over giving lectures on “Discipline.” These lectures are very ed- ucational and are given for the benefit of Monitors in Literary Societies. Miss Connell has made a very deep study of her subject. She also offers a lecture on “Physics,” which is the sen- sation of the age. CONCERT TONIGHT There will be a concert given tonight at the Kanna- polis Y. M. C. A., by the well known arffists, Misses Margaret Antley and Edna Mae Widenhouse. They are expected to draw a large crowd because they are known the world over. Miss Antley has never had an an equal tickling the ivories. Miss Widenhouse has even a sweeter voice than Jenny Lind of yesterday. Tickets are selling like hot cakes and a good crowd is expected. LETTER FRIOM THE FARM Cottontown, Ala. Cornfed Farm, Jan. 26, 1940. Dear friends: I wish to tell you how to make a four acre farm pay. I plow the ground twice a year with mules. I sow the right seed, in the right place, at the right time and then when it’s ready I harvest the crop. I am sure this plan will bring you success. Farmingly yours, Ophelia Overcash. JEWEL THIEF CAUGHT Late yesterday evening the jewel mystery was uncovered and the thief caught. This robbery was unraveled by the skilled detective, Ralph Sech- ler. The thief was identified as Mable Rumple, who was thought to be quiet and hon- est. She had to force the vault open to get the jewels, so it is clear that she had an accomplice; but no other clue has been found yet as to the other thief. The nation owes Ralph Sechler great praise for being able to clear up an amazing mystery as he did this one. SMITH, OLYMPIC STAR Clement Smith yesterday took all honors in running. He won every race that he participated in. He also set three world’s records, which were previously held by Nur- mi, Finland champion. He also won over Joie Ray, the fast Chicago sprinter. Smith is a great runner and it is believed he will send a chal- lenge all over the world, to anyone who wishes to race. Would you be beautiful ? Would you be thin? Would you be charming?

Propst was never in danger of the terri- fic wallop of the champion. He was so much smaller that he dodged the former K. O. artist and tired him out so, he was easy to knock out. Dempsey is reported to have said that he might as well have been slndow-boxing as to try to hit his opponent. ♦♦♦♦♦♦ For the Restoration of Your Hair, Use Godiva’s “Gro-Quic” Tonic Dear Friends: I am Anna Taylor, once famous actress, but I had to quit the stage on account of my hair falling out. Two weeks ago a friend told me to try “Gro-Quic Tonic,” but I did not think it would do any good. She advised me to do so at once or I would lose all my hair, so I ordered a bottle of this tonic. In less than a week my hair has grown a foot long and it also has stopped dropping out. I am back on the stage egain and making a comfor- table living. Yours for “Gro-Quic,” Anna Taylor. 16 Movie Street, Hollywood, Cal. NOTED DANCER SUES FOR DIVORCE Nan Archer, world famous dancer, has now entered suit for divorce against her hus- band, Dr. C. A. Troutman, who is equally prominent in the world of surgery. Mrs. Troutman has engaged Mr. William Davis, lawyer, to plead her case. She is divorcing Dr. Trout- man on account of his failure to support her. He only gave her ten thousand dollars a year. “A mere triffle; not enough to buy puppy bis- cuits for my darling Fido!” says Miss Archer. iHEHiiigiigiiiiiiiBiiiiaiasisiiaiasiigi The United States Nightin- gale will appear in concert of old Favorites.

The magic of the fire light seemed to have lifted the curtain of years, and once more the class of ’25 was- able to sing “Down in K. H. S.” with the same old zest. And after that, it was only natural that the past should be recalled. Some noticed the shrunken circle. “We were once twenty-eight,” Roy said woefully. “Why don’t you remember when we started to learn our “High School Spirit Song?” Boys and girls, it really was in 1924, and it has been nineteen years ago. We are getting old.” “Do you remember that first Freshmen election, and our class meeting later when we adopted Black and Gold, for our class colors and ‘‘Esse quam Vidieri,” for our motto?” said Irene. Margaret then suggested. “If we’re going to turn this into a memory meeting, we might as well go about it systematically; so let’s each tell what impressed our mind most and thus we wont omit anything. You begin, Mr. President.” “It was so long ago that about all I remember is Thanksgiving holidays and a Christmas tree during my Freshman year.” “Christmas, we had two weeks vacation which we all enjoyed. After we came back to school, it was like starting a new term of school, for exams came next, and they were our real first ones,” laughed Mildred. “Don’t you remember the time on Valentine’s day when we had a little party? That was the first real party we ever gave, and we were so nervous over it because we were afraid that we would do something wrong.” “Near the end of school the boys organized a base-ball team and played the schools around. Sometimes we would get beaten, but never would get out of heart and we kept our pride just the same. I can’t think of anything more that year,” said Ralph. “Let ' s skip the rest and begin after we were Sophomores,” suggested Emma. “Who has forgotten Halloween night? We surely had a lot on us that year. And it was right there that we helped the Senior class give the party, don’t you remember?” asked Gene Peeler. “When the class of ’23 left us in May we had sad feelings to realize that they would not be with us the remaining two years we had to stay. Twenty-one “In our Junior year we had more to do than any year before. Had you thought of when we planted that tree in front of the school building, and named it Lorene? Then came the Halloween party and part of us told fortunes and sold peanuts for the Pioneer, our first annual.” “I know you have not forgotten the night that the Seniors gave us a wienie roast here at this very place,” exclaimed Idell. “Oh! surely don’t forget the first White Christmas that K. H. S. gave. It certainly was thrilling to think that we really were doing something worth while.” This was from serious Irene. “Then on April Fool’s night the Junior-Senior banquet, at Cabarrus Hall. We all put our interest into it to make the Seniors feel that they were at home. We gave a toast to the; Seniors after we had all that we could eat, and gave them little gifts. Then came the time we had to clean the dining room,” giggled Kathleen. “Now we came to the dear old Senior year, our last year in old K. H. S. It took four years to be allowed to be called Seniors, and we felt very proud to be in school that year.” “We gave a Halloween party to make some money for our Pioneer,” said Roy, “we had a lot to worry about that year.” “We had to make plans every way possible to make money for the Pioneer. Wasn’t it funny the way we worked in order to put out a better book than the] class before us ? I shall never forget the sandwiches,” sighed Alice. “How quickly the Spring Term passed. Of course, there was a lot of excite- ment. There were many parties given in our honor. How proud we felt at those parties!” “We went to the banquet the Juniors gave us. It was one that could hardly be beaten by anyone,” affirmed William. “We lived as in a dream during commencement, didn’t we?” said Anna. “And before we knew it we had finished and were ready to go out into the world,” sighed Clement. “It was a sad group of boys and girls who met in the auditorium after receiving the diplomas that night. But we sang “K. H. S.” and promised to come back to every reunion, and this is the first time we have had even half the class back,” said Edna Mae. The last bit of flame flickered and died rest, was lost in his memories. unnoticed; for each, oblivious of the Clarence Troutman, ’25.

Senior Class Poem In papoose days the Indian small Tosses about in wind and breeze. Caring naught for work or toil, Happily swinging from the trees. When grown to lads they roamed about Virgin streams and mountains wild. With bows and arrows always out, They realized man’s work as a child. An Indian warrior bold and brave He fought the battles of his tribe. He tramped the woods; he swam the wave To win his manhood and his bride. And then at last the Indian chief His fortitude and courage proven, Welcomed new-comers with pipes-of-peace And homes to pioneers were given. In Freshman days we were as free As a papoose swinging in a tree. In Sophomore days we started then To realize we must work as men. In Junior days we passed the test And now as Seniors show the best. Let us go forward with all the vim We need in this old world to win; With courage high and honor bright We need to battle for the right; With hearts aglow with love and praise, For our Alma Mater of high school days.

After having passed many obstacles during our second year of experience, we gladly gave our places to the Freshmen, and we now find ourselves, as the sun begins to sink, occupying the third and next to the last period of our High School career. Although a few members of our band have turned back, we still have the majority of our original number. We, the Freshmen and Sophomores of yesterday and Seniors of tomorrow, give a word of encouragement to those following us, for we both knew and under- stand. Their path will be rugged, but along with their trials they will have joy and happiness. Next year will be one filled with joy mingled with sorrow for us, for, as the sun sinks below the horizon, we must leave dear old K. H. S., never to return, for we will have finished our journey and shall settle in new regions inhabited by new people. But, at the same time, we feel that it is our duty to pass on and give our places to those who follow us. Rosalie Gillon, Historian.

When we first came co the High School of Kannapolis, we felt privileged, yet small when we heard the name Freshmen. We felt honored at having a class so large as to have a division because this had never happened before in the history of Kannapolis High School. Two parties were given us by the Misses Lorene Brown and Della Mae Peeler. Misses Frances Wood and Diella Mae Peeler took us on a hike that was a great success. Just before old 1924 anished Miss Lcrent Brown held up her ancient custom, spon- soring an “Algebra Party,” given by the losing side in an algebra contest. Miss Lucy Brown took us on a field trip in Biology which was duly appreciated. If it had not been for our booth in “The Trip Around the World,” which was for the benefit of the annual the tour would have failed. We handed in as much money as the other three classes together. Our part in the Hallowe’en party was great, also. On the fifth day of January, nineteen hundred and twenty-five, we entered a new building which is fully equipped and surrounded by thick red “beauty-clay.” The coldness of the first few days until we got a janitor, affected us but little, for we were hardened to it after our rooms last year. We now bid you a regretful good-bye and hope to meet you again. When we belong to ye Junior Class. Jas. (Jazzy) Walton, ’27. Olin (Nilo) Scarboro, ’27.

Who’s always nice to everyone? IRENE RUMPLE? Yes! And now we have our ALL-ROUND-BEST, As pop’lar as the tree. With twinkly eyes and curly hair, ’Tis MARGARET ANTLEY. Many girls at K. H. S. Are perfect little dears, But EVELYN RUMPLE is the very NICEST we have here. Not naughty-bad, but NAUGHTY- niee. You’ll surely have to watch ’er. Her eyes are blue, mischievious, too — We’re speaking of NAN ARCHER. Our most ATHLETIC is CLEMENT SMITH. In all sports he excells, Base-ball, foot-ball, basket-ball — He plays equally well. They say that beauty is skin-deep. But we know better, we do. Our PRETTIEST is EDNA MAE And she’s a sweet girl, too. Fifty ROY PROPST is our ORIGINAL one, The things that boy does do. He leads our class and plays with us And, sometimes, studies, too. Of all the LAZY boys we know, RALPH SECHLER takes the cake, We hope he doesn’t starve to death When his living he must make. Now comes our genius, WILLIAM DAVIS is his name— In “INTELLECTUALITY” We know he’ll win his fame. Her lips point out provokingly, Our SAUCY JANIE HARRIS. She looks at us most “sassily,” Her actions always dare us. GENE PEELER is the HANDSOM- EST Of all the boys we know. When “Genie” comes into the room The girls’ hearts flutter so. INDEPENDENT? Well I guess! Mcst indifferent girl in town. Doesn’t care a bit if they say, Her name’s EDNA BROWN. Spell these letters now straight down If you ask me why, It spells the very finest place, Old KANNAPOLIS HI! Fifty-one Memories of K. H. S. I gaze in the west in the late afternoon. As the sun is sinking low, And the beauty of it brings back to me Sweet memories of long ago. I gaze at the sky with its wonderful light. As the clouds go drifting by, And the golden peaks that I see in the west Seem to pierce the summer sky. I gaze at the fields of growing grain, As it waves in the autumn sun, And the cry of the night-hawks pierce the air. When the golden day is done. I live in the haunts of nature, With its quiet beauty serene. But still in my heart is a longing And I continue to dream. I dream not of the future, I only dream of the past, Of dear old friends at K. H. S. That I knew to be true ’till the last. I dream of the friends of the campus, The court, and the diamond, too, The battle of foot-ball; the classes, I dream the whole day through. It’s during this time so lonely, I take from the shelf above, My nineteen twenty-five Annual And read of the friends I love. For tho I live in the haunts of nature. With it’s wildest beauty serene. In my heart there is always a longing And I continue to dream. Joe Johnson, ’2ti. a- LIFE IN K.HS. Fifty-three Yearly Events With determination for a successful year we entered the class room. We knew there were steps to ascend which we had not yet attained in the other, years. We were met with the familiar smiles from Miss Brown, Miss Wood, and Mr. Cannon and in addition thereto received congenial smiles from Miss Rollins, Miss Smart, Miss Lucy Brown, Mr. Wishy and Miss Garrett. These encouraged us to undertake the journey. SOCIAL EVENTS The social events were many and were enjoyed greatly. We met together in a friendly way with the Juniors on a “weinie rcast,” which proved that we were not too dignified for them. The Seniors had a “get-to-gether” party at Miss Mildred Roger’s on Thanks- giving. The Seniors accepted with pleasure the entertainment given by Miss Mary Lee Hill. The Juniors used skill in showing their hospitality at the banquet which they gave to us on Valentine. The decorations represented “Love” and many of the darts found a goal. They proved that cooking is an art worthy of attainment. Our en- joyment proved that healthy living gave it a fair test. NEW EQUIPMENT We enjoyed the volumes of latest fiction, the magazines, papers, and sets of books from standard writers which were put into the library during the year, and were bought with the money given to the Literary Fund by the Class of ’24 as a parting gift. We looked forward with pride to enter the new building which we were privi- leged to initiate. The change from the old to the new gave some confusion, but we soon became acquainted with the new environment which proved to be a benefit to all. A Science department has also added to it much valuable and interesting ap- paratus. We appreciate the advantages given us in the new building. EXAMINATIONS The new year found us preparing for Mid-Term Exams which came and went lifting the cloud which appeared to hang over many. Those of us who were for- tunate enough to be excused from finals were truly thankful. CHAPEL EXERCISES “Each day we make a glad one all along, All crowned with love and praise and song.” LITERARY SOCIETY PROGRAMS The High School is divided into two literary societies. The Cannon and Phil- omathean. They met together, alternating every two weeks. The programs were inspirational as well as interesting. “THE PIONEER” We have ushered the “Pioneer” a step forward on its journey. The social side proved to be a great service to us in publis hing our efforts for the year. Hallowe’en relieved us from the sober side of life for awhile. It presented to us the ghosts in various forms. While under this influence many; events of the future were revealed. After the party was over we found our treasury replenished to the amount of sixty-eight dollars. The box supper was a feature of the day which was enjoyed by all and gave us encouragement in our work to the extent of thirteen dollars. “The Flapper Grandmother” which was presented in the new auditorium was enjoyed and proved a success fcr us. HOLIDAYS Holidays came as a rescue in the hour of toil as the fresh water from a cool spring to a thirsty traveler on his weary journey. The teachers refreshed themselves in Charlotte at the Teacher’s Meeting at the fountain of knowledge while we gladly waited their return. The day following the County Fair Holiday many could not speak of anything but wheels and horses while others held to their balloons and whistles. Thanksgiving came in its season and the weather was favorable for the joyful occasion of two days of rest. Christmas holidays came speedily flying by but not before we were ready to greet them. The White Christmas was a joy to many for the service they rendered to the needy. The first day of April found several napping on the job. Easter Monday presented to us the opportunity to gather flowers which was welcomed by all. COMMENCEMENT Commencement arrived which gave us our liberty and the opportunity to fight life’s battles without leaders. Senior Stunt night presented some in very good light. The history and prophecy of our class revealed many thrilling incidents m the fives of its members. . . . , , , . The Ssnior Play was a dramatic value and it brought out much hidden talent in our class. , T „ ,, „ , , ■ The Baccalaureate Sermon by Reverend W. C.. Jamison, of the Presbyterian church directed the attention of the Seniors to the value of life. It encouiaged the class to make life worth while. . , , The joy which breaks upon the heart of a well earned victor was revealed to us in receiving the diplomas. Our minds were wrapped in visions when we heard the literary address by J. Henry Highsmith. Virginia Wiggins, ’25.

Sixty Springtime Is Coming Springtime is coming, The bees will soon be humming, The flowers will gaily bloom everyday, The frost is melting away, For spring is on her way. Springtime is coming, In all her golden splendor, With the smiling sun as mender To the cold and cheerless ground, That soon becomes green mounds, In her answer to the spring. Springtime is coming, How joyful is the sound, In the field, fresh flowers spring, To greet the happy child who sings, A song of mirth and gladness, In her token to the spring. Springtime is coming, With days all bright and fair, A dewey freshness fills the air, And mingles with the sweet smelling flowers, And makes one day seem only an hour. Springtime is coming, Help spread the joyful news, The snow, the flowers will subdue, And substitute with lovely hues, Cheer up- — don’t look so blue, Begin with spring, and start anew.
