We were very glad to have “Dot” join cur class in our Sophomore year. She came to us from Asheville but has made as many friends during the three years that she has been here as one generally makes in a life time. We are waiting patiently for we know that she will some day become as famous as Rasphael. SHELBY BOST Glee Club ’22’23, Tar Heel Literary Society ’22’23, Old Hickory Literary Society ’23’24, Philomathean Literary Society ’24’25’26, Exchange Editor cf Pioneer Staff ’26. Because “Sheb” is the smallest of the class is no reason why she isn’; our biggest flirt. And oh my! How she c?n tickle the ivory keys. Does she rag em ? I should say she does. We are proud that we have her in our class. We are wishing her much success in reaching the heighth of her ambition — to play in some big or- chestra. KATHERINE IDELLE COLLINS Entered ’25, Philomathean Society ’25’26, Secretary of Philomathean So- ciety ’25, Vice President of Philoma- thean Society ’26, President of Class ’26, Assistant Editor of Pioneer Staff ’26, Class Poet ’26. “Dell” is from Georgia and is an ideal “Georgia Peach.” We gladly let her join us at the beginning of the new year of 1925. We are sure that her winning ways and ability to make strangers friends will lead her to some great success. Thirteen EDGAR B. DAVIS Entered ’25, Philomathean Society ’25’26, Business Manager of Pioneer Staff ’26. Edgar joined our class this year. We were glad to have him come to us in our last days of high school. He is the most serious boy in K.H.S. and doesn’t seem to be very much interested in the opposite sex — will he be a bachelor? We sincerely hope not. ALMA MAE DURHAM Carolenian Society ’23, Old Hickory Society ’24, Athletic Association ’25, Glee Club ’24’25’26, Philomathean So- ciety ’25’26. Alma has a combination of three valuable traits — the ability to work hard, a musical talent, and a good disposition. These three qualities have made her many friends during her four years in K.H.S. The world will find it a big task to keep Alma from the top of the ladder of success. EUGENE FUNDERBURK Varsity Foot Ball ’24’25, President of Philcmathean Society ’25, Secretary of Class ’26. If it’s got anything to do with geo- metry, just ask “Brix.” He seems to know this subject perfectly. He joined our class this year and has willingly helped us with everything. His thoughts are not only on school work for we often see him stepping about with the ladies. “Brix” has not de- cided on his life’s work but we are satisfied that he will succeed in any- thing he undertakes as he is one who gets what he goes after. Fourteen ROSALIE GILLON President of Class ’23, Tar Heel So- ciety ’22’23, Vice President of Old Hickory Society ’24, Vice President of Philomathean Society ’25, Glee Club ’22’23’24’25’26, Secretary of Glee Club ’25, Historian of Class ’25, Cannon Literary Society ’26. We’ve had Rosalie with us all the time and you bet she is the kind of a girl we will miss. Good-looking? Yes. Tall? Rather. Popular? Uh-huh. Good student? Absolutely four- square. Yes, she’s all of this and then some-our most attractive Senior. MARY LENA GRAEBER Monitor of Tar Heel Literary Society ’22’23, Old Hickory Literary Society ’23’24, Varsity Basket Ball ’23’24, Treasurer of Glee Club ’24’25, Athletic Association ’24’25, Treasurer of Class ’24’25’26, Glee Club ’22’23’24‘25‘26, Cannon Literary Society ’24’25’26, President of Cannon Literary Society ’25’26, President of Glee Club ’25’26. In Mary we find a faithful student, who is loyal to her class. She has the honor of being the “prettiest” senior. Mary is always in for a good time whenever a chance affords one, but she doesn’t let her pleasure inter- fere with her studies. Old K. H. S. will miss her smile and laughter. HILDA GARLINGHOUSE Tar Heel Society ’22’23, Glee Club ’22’23’24’25’26, Philomathean Society ’24’25’26. Treasurer of Philomathean Society ’25, Vice President of Philo- mathean Society ’26, Varsity Basket Ball ’24’25’26, Editor-in-Chief of Pio- neer Staff ’26. Hilda has indeed been a true worker for the class of ’26, and her untiring perseverance will be missed. The midnight oil has been burned rather extensively in her home. We wonder if it was for the annual. The class has its doubts. Fifteen GLADYS BELL GOODNIGHT Entered ’22, Glee Club ’22’23, Caro- ls nian Society ’22’23, Old Hickory So- ciety ’23’24, Philomathean Society ’24’26, Subscription Editor of Pioneer Staff ’26, Class Prophet ’26. “Glad” as she is better known is as good as the best in anything she un- dertakes. She is attractive, enter- taining, and original — in fact the class thinks she is our “most original.” Gladys has made many friends at K.LI.S. with her sunny disposition and her ability to make fun out of work. Our best wishes go with her as she bids us goodbye. ❖ MILLY GENEVA GOODNIGHT Tar Heel Literary Society ’22, Glee Club ’22’23, Old Hickory Literary So- ciety ’23’24, Philomathean Literary Society’25’26, Chairman of Pragram Committee of Philomathean Literary Society ’26. Milly, better known as “Bill”, has been with with us all four years of cur high school career. In school Milly is quiet and stud- ious, but she likes fun and is one of the best of sports. We feel quite sure that she will make a success of whatever she at- tempts to do in the future. EULA HALL GRAY Entered ’24, Philomathean Society ’24’25’26. “Uke” has a sweet disposition, knows how to make and keep friends. She is not as noisy as the rest of us in school ye; she can laugh at the right time and can have as good a time as anyone. Eula joined our class last year and all of us are glad she did for she is always willing to help our class ad- vance farther and farther. In spite of being small, Eula is always noticed in a crowd. FLORA MAE GOLDSTON Tar Heel Literary Society ’22, Old Hickory Society ’23’24, Cannon Liter- ary Society ’25’26, Athletic Associa- tion ’24’25, Critic of Cannon Society ’26. Small? Yes, but then the best thing’s are often in the small packages, we have heard. Though she is not al- ways a brilliant scholar, Flora Mae has always managed to pass her work. The queer part about it is that nobody can see how she can have such good times and pass to. We attribute much of it to her good luck. We will miss her when she leaves old K.H.S. SADIE ELMA HARRIS ’Entered ’21, Tar Heel Society ’22’23, Philomaihean Society ’24’25’26. Just stop and think! Sadie was voted our “most popular.” Not only was she voted that but she really is. When there’s anything going on for excitement you’ll find her in the midst of the others. As a sport, she is one of the best. You always meet Sadie with a smil- ing face and we will miss her when she has gone from K.H.S. MARY LEE HILL Carolinian Literary Society ’23, Old Hickory Society ’24, Cannon Society ’25’26, Glee Club ’25’26, Critic of Can- non Society ’26. Mary Lee, better known as “Pete,” is a popular little flapper, especially with the opposite sex. She has a date every night, and her motto is “pleas- ure before work,” but she always passes on her work and we are won- dering how she does it. She has been with us through all four years of high sch-rol and we don’t see how we could have gotten along without her. Seventeen SUE LEE MAULDEN Entered ’22, Glee Club ’23’26, Caro- linian Society ’22’23, Old Hickory So- ciety ’23’24, Philomathean Society ’24’26, Chairman of Program Commit- tee of Philomathean Society ’25, Pres- ident of Philomathean Society ’26, Subscription Editor of Pioneer Staff ’26. Sue has been in our class from the beginning. She is popular not only in school, but everywhere she goes. She is always backing up the K.H.S. athletics and is a sport or sports. She never takes time to worry over anything, laughing and being cheer- ful to chase away the blues of those around her. SLOAN L. MITCHEM Carolenian Society ’22, Old Hickoi’y Society ’23’24, President of Old Hick- ory Society ’24, Vice President of Class ’23’24, Football Manager ’24, Secretary of Cannon Literary Society ’24, Athletic Association ’24’25, Can- non Literary Society ’24’25’26. Sloan is the star student of our class. He doesn’t study all the time because he can be seen around town most any time. His four years in K.H.S. have won him many friends. He keeps our class supplied with jokes and has the ability to make one laugh and forget his troubles. We are all proud to claim his as a class mate. ALTHA McCOMBS Tar Heel Society ’22, Old Hickory Society ’23’24, Glee Club ’24’25, Can- non Literary Society ’25’26. We wish Altha didn’t have to grad- uate, for old K.H.S. will never be the same without her. She doesn’t seem to take very much interest in study- ing, yet she passes on. She is pop- ular everywhere she goes, of course more so with the opposite sex. Oh yes! We must not forget to mention that Altha wears a diamond given to her by a certain young man. gije JXumear HARRIET CAROLYN ORR Entered ’23, Monitor of Carolinian So- ciety ’23, Glee Club ’23’242’5, Athle- tic Association ’23’24’25. Harriet, while always very “frank,” never says anything to hurt any- one’s feelings. She has brains, abil- ity and personality, and is therefore one of the brighest lights of the class. She is very sympathetic and under- stands human nature and love affairs perfectly. Harriet is a good sport, she can laugh with the happy, weep with the v. ' eary and love with the lovers. She is an easy going care-free school girl. Besides all this she is one of our pret- tiest and attractive seniors. MILDRED LEONA PARKER Entered ’22, Tar Heel Society ’22’23, Old Hickory Society ’23’24, Cannon Society ’24’26, Vice President of Can- non Society ’26, Business Manager of Pioneer Staff ’26. Mildred is better known by her classmates and intimate friends as “Boots.” “Boots” is our business lady and an all round good chap. She is often seen making “goo-goo eyes” at the blonde type of the opposite sex, but we know she also admires the brunettes. ROY EUGENE ROLLINS Old Hickory Literary Society ’24, Var- sity Foot Ball ’25, Philomathean So- ciety ’25, Class Critic ’25, Varsity Basket Ball ’25’26, Cannon Literary Society ’26. “Country” Rollins is one of the most unassuming and reliable members of the student body. He takes life easy, but is always present when needed. He doesn’t seem to be very interested in the problem of life for he has never been seen to approach a young lady. By his many funny remarks, he keeps the class in an uproar. He worries the teachers but yet they like him. Nineteen MARY KATHRYN SECHLER Monitor of Tar Heel Society ’22, Tar Heel Society ’22, Old Hickory Society ’23, Cannon Literary Society ’24’25’26. Although we have had “Shorty” with us all through our high school career, we have never tired of her. She is good looking, cute, popular and a good sport. The worst part of it is that she worries all teachers by her continuous talking. She is a happy go lucky girl who believes in having a good time — in brief she is just a modern flapper. CLEMENT SMITH Entered ’25, Cannon Literary Society ’25’26, Athletic Editor of Pioneer Staff ’26. Our best athlete in “Clem.” He not only plays ball but plays with hearts also. Talk about sheiks, but Clem is one, handsome, a good spore, dressy, all these and some more too. Is it any wonder that everyone ad- mires him? We will always remem- ber him as the sheik of our class and we hope he will succeed in his great- est ambition. WILLIENE ALMA SMITH Entered ’25, Philomathean Society ’25’26, Critic of Philomathean Society ’25, Literary Editor of Pioneer Staff ’26. Bill is another good sport from Georgia. She joined us at the begin- ning of our Senior year. It is a well known fact that Williene is good looking and knows how to win the hearts of all young men. She never comes up lacking in her school work, but she does believe in having a jolly good time. We will miss her saucy ways, but we are willing to give her up, know- ing that someday she will become fam- ous in her life’s vocation. Twenty EDITH SIMS Entered ’22, Tar Heel Literary So- ciety ’22’23, Old Hickory Socie ty ’23’24, Glee Club ’22’23, Philomathean Society ’24’25’26. We have enjoyed having- Edith with ur during the entire four years of our high school career and she has done much toward making the class worth while. “Peggy,” as she is known by her gang, is an all-round gocd sport, good looking, energetic, and is almost as useful as her Ford. She has won many friends at K.H.S. with her lov- able disposition, who wish her every success as she goes out in life. MARGIE WINECOFF Carolenian Society ’23, Old Hickory. Society ’24, Basket Ball Team ’23’24’25, Cannon Society ’25’26, Glee Club ’24’25’26, Athletic Association ’24’25’26. Margie is a good basket ball play- er, having played three years on the girls’ team. She is always ready for a good laugh and a good time, al- though she displays her “senior dig- nity” on class. All girls talk and are caught sometimes, but Mar gie is un- usually luckier than the rest of us. She is ambitious and we hardly know what to predict for her, but we have a fairly good idea where her interests mostly lie. OUELLA OVERCASH Tar Heel Literary Society ’22’23, Old Hickory Literary Society ’24’25, Phil- omathean Literary Society ’25’26. “Pug” was voted cur most sarcastic member. We disagree with those who say that sarcasm is a fault, for. “Pug” has proven to us that it may be used to advantage at times. Studies are the least of “Pug’s” worries, and she’s always in for any- thing you could call fun. LILLIAN KIRK DEMARCUS " Our Mascot Senior Class Poem As we began our journey in 1922 We determined to win success, And on this voyage — as Freshmen We found hard work, but also happiness. In the second year of our high school career We struck harder with each tap, Until we had covered half our distance By carefully using our compass and map. When we were in our Junior year We worked even harder then, For we realized the end was near And we must work to win. Then we discovered we were near the shore, We had journed many a mile And now we must prepare to face Our last and hardest trial. And now as landing Seniors We have much before us to do, But everyone’s happy and useful ’Til alas! We’re too soon thru. Thanks to each teacher who has helped us Just one step farther on, And best wishes to good old K. H. S. Which is dearest next to home. Now let’s keep “Rowing, Not Drifting,” Always doing our best, Striving to teach and help others; And we’ll reach our goal at last. Idelle Collins, ’26. Twenty-three Senior Class Song Tune of “There’s a Long, Long Trail.” We’re the dear old class called “Seniors.” Oh, how we all love the name, The dearest class in K. H. S., High school fame. There’s a long, long day awaiting Until our dreams all come true, ’Tis the day of graduatirn, Then our high school days are thro’. Shelby Dost, ’26. Senior Class History It is rather hard to believe that at last we are really Seniors, the dignified pupils that we, as Freshmen, looked upon these who had at last come to the end of their High School career. Four years ago, we started in High School as “little green freshies,” as be- ginners are referred to, “chug full cf ambition.” Although there were many obstacles, we managed to overcome them and even to have a good time on several delightful outings. When the end of the year came, we felt that we had made a good start on our journey. Feeling a little less “green,” we began our Sophomore year with more deter- minatirn. Although we had lost some of our old classmates, we still struggled on to win our fight. After passing through our Freshmen and Sophomore years most successfully, we came at last to our Junior year. “Wise Old Juniors” we were, for hadn’t we passed through hard and trying years ? But we were not discouraged by our struggles, but proud of our successes and eager to continue our journey. So we have at. last finished our journey. It makes us sad to know we have to leave the old school where memories, laughter and good times abound. But we’ll try not to care, although we know others will take our places and this the “Spirit” that K. H. S. inspires will live on. Dorothy Antley, Historian. trrOTT The Senior s Ship When Pilgrims left for Plymouth In the Mayflower, the story is told, They sought for worship’s freedom Not silver, nor brass, nor gold. In like manner, we, the Seniors Of the class of ’26, Have struggled hard for four years To learn with the world to mix. As Freshmen, we began our journey, Knowledge was our home; And we rowed our boats safely ' Till one-fourth of the way was gone. Sophomores, we renewed our journey, The waves seemed harder to ride; But still we kept on going, Determined to win our fight. But now we were wise old Juniors With only a little ways to row. Almost certain of our success, Having glimpsed a brilliant shore. Seniors: Dignified Seniors! We’ve reached our goal at last, We’re ready to start all over In the new world of success. And so the ship sails on forever, Beckoning us on ’till the last; ’Till over the horizon it disappears In the solitude of the vast. Twenty-five Senior Class Prophecy Though my journey has been a long one, everybody has proved to be friendly strangers. I wanted to return to America and once again to North Carolina. I would be content. Yet there were many interesting things in Europe and the people were unusually friendly. Still I longed to be back among my cheerful classmates of ’26. At last I was in Breast, France, ready to tell everyone goodbye. The day I left, the sun wasn’t shining, but the patter, patter of the rain on the deck made one more homesick than ever. On the third day the clouds had vanished and the sun shone brightly. And as I stood on the deck gazing out over the waters, the breeze seemed to bring a sweet message to me. Turning around I was confronted with a very familiar looking person. At a second glance I knew it was Roy Rollins. He was captain of the ship instead of chauffering his Ford as he had done in High School days. A cheerful smile covered his face when I asked him if he had seen any of our classmates lately. Then he informed me that Eugene Funderburk had come over on the same ship 1 was going back on, and if I had only looked probably I would have seen him. Only a glimpse of his hair would tell me he was a stranger anti not a Frenchman. “Gene,” he said was on his way to Greece to study the origin of geometry. Then Roy told me just before he left New York, he was off for a few minutes and decided to get in his Ford and ride over to one of the nearby parks. While there he discovered that Clement Smith was a physical director of the park. Although I got to see Roy several times before we reached New York I did not get to talk to him long at a time. While walking down one of the streets of New York not knowing whether it had a name or not, a sign on a window gave me an appetite and as I caught sight of the name of the proprietress, “Harris Lunch and Tea Room,” I opened the door and walked in. Who could it be? Nobody but Sadie. After a short greeting, I exclaimed, “I thought you and ‘Gene’ were married.” Not to my surprise she said, “we are,” and that she w as running the tea room alone, while “Gene” was in Greece, but when he returned, there would be a tea room for sale. While I was eating my lunch, I observed a very attractive studio. I soon dis- covered by the display in the window that it was an artists’ studio. Being a lover of pictures. I ventured across the street to take a peep at the pictures. On the lower corner of one cf the beautiful pictures was this signature, D.L.A. I knew it must be my old chum Dorothy Antley. I thought I would make an exploit of the inside and see if I was right. Sure enough there was “Dot,” painting a picture from life. On the table sat a little dog with his back towards her. She was having trouble about just where to paint his tail because he wouldn’t held it still. Wjo Xlorvear linillUII nill ' UikfiiiliiilliiiniiiiiiiJiifcjiMiiiiiij ' nfJiiiiiaiiiiPiH I spent the night with “Dot.” When night came we decided to go to the theatre. After turning a few corners on the trolly, we found ourselves entering one of the large theatres on Broadway. At once we were in the dark. “The lights must be out.” “Of course, always,” said “Dot.” Then I read a few lines on the screen, it was the cast of characters. I knew Miss Dawson had talked about the cast of characters in Macbeth. Surely it was going to be Macbeth, but that wasn’t the name of the play. So I convinced myself that all plays had a cast of characters and “Dot” agreed. The name of the picture was, “Just Sally,” Shelby Bost was playing the part of Sally. I didn’t gasp when I read who the directress was. I thought it, but now I knew it. Hilda Garlinghouse had won her way from directing the minstrel of ’26 to a directress in the movie world. When we returned, we were talking about our high school days, when I took notice of a little blue poem book lying beside me. “That is the latest edition of Idelle’s poems. She has won fame writing love and humorous poems.” And then I read the name of the author, “Katherine Idelle Collins.” Idelle was always writing poems in school, to make us laugh. “Dot,” like all the rest owned a radio too. So we “tuned in” to find out what we could hear. People are not living so fast after all for the first thing on the program was a solo by Rosalie Gillon, “I Love You Truly Dear.” How well we remember this favorite selection of Rosalie’s, which she sang at the Junion-Senior Banquet in ’25. I knew I wasn’t dreaming. It was Mary Graeber singing a Japanese solo. Mary first learned how when she played in “Cherry Blossom.” After a few moments of recreation, the next number was announced a tragedy, “Life in High School.” Edith Sims and her Ford and Sloan Mitchem and his books, were the characters of the play. It was very interesting, but like ail tragedies it had a happy ending. Edith and Sloan, as usual acted their parts to the best of their ability. Next we turned a little round instrument on the radio, and Station KDKA responded with familiar voices, it was Ovella Overcash, Mary Kathryn Sechler, and Altha McCombs relating their experiences of the day before. They hadn’t forgotten how since we were in high school. They had become entertainers of the world. An announcement of a prize was the next thing on the program, Miss Harriet Orr, famous dancer, won the prize in the Charleston contest. To break the monotony, the next item was a lecture by Miss Flora Mae Gold- ston, her topic was “At What Age Should A Man Get Married?” It was very in- teresting to the listeners-in. A word from Misses Eula Gray and Milly Goodnight, world known sports, announced the opening of their new studio giving a course in perpetual movement. Twenty-seven to all the The last announcement fcr the night and I will say Goodnight radio fans. Miss Alma Durham, of the Carolina Stage Society, will stage a play at Glass, North Carolina, February the 31st. A kind little maid appeared before us, with the evening paper and a cup of tea. Turning my paper over, this is what I read: “Miss Williene Smith, head nurse of John Hopkins Hospital, becomes the bride of Dr. M .” Reading on I came to a stop. This is it! The Kindergarten of 134 West Bronx, New York, announces the arrival of the new supervisor of the kindergarten, Miss Mildred Parker, of Kannapolis, North Carolina. Miss Parker has the ability to win the hearts of the little ones, and success is sure. Never once in my life have I seen so many announcements. World-wide Interior Decorator, Miss Mary Lee Hill, will be in Kannapolis to observe the interior decoration rf the High School library and auditorium. Wonder why? I just decided to read about the world and what all was hap- pening, when I spied a name that I knew must be Margie Winecoff’s. Margie was in court sueing for a divorce on the basis that she was tired of living with her present husband and wanted to change to break the monotony of seeing the same face every day. Of course I would read the advertisements. Not being so much surprised as some might have been. Then I read that “The World Known Museum,” of Landis, North Carolina, had changed owners. Mr. Edgar Davis, the new proprietor. Mr. Davis has a large collection of June bugs and fish worms and many other interesting animals to enter into his museum. Folding up my paper, I was about to lay it aside, when I read, “Just Returned from Paris, Mme. Sue Maulden. Having completed her course in Parisian styles Mine. Maulden will take up her work in the near future at Concord, North Carolina.” Laying my paper aside I was inclosed in dreams and as silence reigned over the night, the soft breezes chased my memories away. But there was still a vivid memory of the class of ’26. Gladys Goodnight- ’26, Prophetess. T JL Twenty-eight THE GOLD AND BLACK VOL. II. KANNAPOLIS, N. C. 1940 GEOMETRY LAB. Eugene Funderburk, Prop.

FOUR WHEEL BRAKES ON A FORD News has just been re- ceived in ' the patent office, that Mr. Roy Rollins had in- vented four wheel brakes on his Ford. When he was questioned what led him to think about inventing the brakes, he related his story very formally and frankly ad- mitted the fact that his Ford was so old that parts of it had worn into. Once he had to take some wires and rop- ing to tie his wheels togeth- er, and when he hail gone a half a block, the wires and roping had wrapped itself around the axles of the car, and the wheels refused to turn, and so my Ford stopped I thought I would come and get a patent on it, before some guy would come along and take the brakes off in order to take a ride. We are sure of a large au- dience and think they will be pleased to hear her melo- dious voice. Come out and fill the au- ditorium so that the corners won’t reecho her voice.

Mr. Davis’ talent for machinery has at last won him fame. Mr. Davis’ patent has been received with many congrat- ulations, and many think that his great ability to do small things will prove to be great enough to do larger things some day in the future.

Shelby was always known by her economical disposi- tion, and maybe some day her invention will become a ‘ famous invention to others. THE GOLD AND B LA C K EDITORIAL When we glance back over the years past, we can re- member the day when ' we started our high school career and choose K. H. S. as our school. It was at K.H.S. we got our start but after four years of work and play we had to depart. You can see, can’t you? Guess at the progress we have made. Only yesterday we received our diplomas, and in this edition of the Gold and Black you will read about our fam- ous folks-to-be. Though time flies fast and our imagina- tions are of the highest, we hope that some day they will be realized.

THE GOLD AND BLACK LIFE IN SENIOR CLASS Tho’ we try to make it jolly, The teachers think its only a folly; And that in our desk we should sit, To study, and study and never quit. With a lot of noise and fuss; We try to be quiet when we discuss, But it seems useless to try, If we couldn’t say it, we’d most die. In study periods _we roam among each other; Always striving to talk and discuss it together. Such a noise! the teachers can’t hear their ears. To have studied our lessons it never appears. No sooner than the teacher closes the door; There’s always something that starts an uproar, The throwing of chalk, or teasing of beaux, And that’s the way it always goes. G. B. G.

Most High Schools have entrance requirements, that we all like to live up to. Though the list may be long they all pertain to an ideal high school life for a thrifty youngster, who still holds well in his memery the life in a kindergarden. The requirements are as follows: 1. You must have had a course in permanent chewing gum. 2. You will have to be the owner of at ' least five “slabs” of gum, making one whole pack. 3. Must know how to talk on the sly. 4. You must know how to get an excuse. 5. You must drop at least two subjects during the year. 6. You must know the art of misbehaviour. When you have accom- plished these things you are eligible for entrance to K. H. S. RENEW YOUR SUBSCRIP- TION BEFORE IT EXPIRES MILESTONES As a Ford goes chug, chug down the road it finally passes a mile, then two miles, etc. That indicates that it is going somewhere, although it might not be fly- ing. We are like Fords. We have pa ssed milestone after milestone to reach the mile- stone called “Commence- ment.” It’s rather a long distance, but we seem to be nearing that " last milestone. It has been several months since we passed the milestone of mid-term exams, Thanks- giving, Christmas, and Eas- ter holidays. The milestone of final exams can be seen just a little piece down the road. It seems that in the distance the writing on it cannot be clearly defined. We will have to wait until we reach it to see whether that is the end of our journey. If we pass the milestone of final exams without any ac- cidents, such as blowouts, we will at last reach the “Mile- stone of Commencement,” the milestone that will stand out in our lives as we pass on to seek the milestones of suc- cess. INGREDIENTS REQUIRED T0 MAKE A SENIOR In order to make a Senior it takes: 5 pounds of Geometry. 2 1-2 cups of French. 3 3-4 cups of English. 2 ounces of History. 1 peck of Chemistry. Mix Geometry and Chem- istry together. When this is done, stir in the History and French, then whip the Eng- lish units which will make the Seniors fluffy. Bake in three small layers. Use chewing gum, which is one of the Seniors most fav- orite fillings. Serve with the Senior’s ability. When all this is done, you may become a Senior.

Freshmen! Seven years work done, gone, not forgotten. Dignity behold! Our loss never to gain. Our Freshman year was filled with excitement. The greatest of course was the beginning of a K.H.S. annual. It was then and there we pledged our devotion to dear ’ole K.H.S. It was in our Freshman year when our much admired Mr. Cannon and Miss Wood entered upon the scene, adding a brilliant touch. Our Sophomore year seemed to fly as if on wings, with our parties and mer- riment spiced with hard studying and regular attendance. “The Flapper Grand- mother,” a play, given by the High School and Faculty was really a thing to be proud of. And when the seniors displayed their long hidden art of acting in the play “Clarence,” we felt as if there couldn’t be a more perfect school than K.H.S. And now, Juniors imagine! Three years reached — and one to go — That is if?? Don’t think because we are Juniors that we have the “Big Head.” But we really are proud of our foot-ball captain, promising lawyer, soloist, musician, doctor and oh! so many others worthy of mentioning. But remembering our step next year is high and more difficult, we the class of ’27 do hereby pledge our ability, talents and devotion to dear ’ole K.H.S. Blanche Walters ’27,; Betty Propst ’27.

Still our path looks very rugged, Very long and steep and blue; But we’ll ever be careful, Always the right thing to do. The birds will sing about us, The zephyrs gently blow; The sun will shine in all its splendor To tell us where to go. We will keep climbing upward, Doing our best all the time Tho’ our way may be rugged, We’ll climb ’till we’re Seniors sublime.

When the doors of K. H. S. opened on September 22nd, 1924, the class of 1928 may be said to have made its advent. We had] in our class thirty pupils, although we were green little Freshies, we were proud to say that we were in High School, had passed the grammar grades and entered into a new era. Several things which we enjoyed most during the year were the hikes and field study. Oh! Yes! We had a good year cf sports also, and we surely did our part of boosting and backing up old K.H.S. teams. The close of the school term came almost before we realized it. We had en- joyed our first year immensely but nevertheless we were glad to have our vacation. At last, and all too soon this our Sophomore year arrived. Though at this time, also, several former members did come back, we resolved to hold together- through thick and thin, and pursue such activities as were conducive to the ad- vancement of the entix-e class. Our class this year consists of twenty pupils. We are sorry that the other- ten have dropped along the way but the faithful twenty is still pushing forward, hoping to accomplish much and do all we can for the betterment of K.H.S. The Home Economics girls had a lovely time visiting the County Home. We also enjoyed the tour through the Cannon Mills. We were privileged to send things to the Cabarrus county fair to be on exhi- bition and it pleases us very much to say that our class won both first and second prizes in school dress making. As we close the second chapter of our High School History, we anticipate greater achievement next year, when we shall take up the responsibility of che tenth grade. May each shoulder his responsibility bravely and bring glory and honor, not only to himself, but to the class, the school and the community. Vannie Maulden ’28, Historian.

We were faithful in rain and sunshine. Until now we are wearing the cloak of green inherited by all Freshmen, and as the the sun gradually rises in the heavens we are s;epping into this step which we will never forget. Although a few members of our class have turned back, we still have the majority of our original number. We the Freshmen of today give a word of encouragement to those following us. Along with our trials we have joy and happiness. Next year we hope to see twenty-five sturdy heads entering the Sophomore class, as now we feel that, it is our duty to pass and give our places to those who follow us.

We had so many it was necessary to divide them into three sections. When we came to the high school of Kannapolis, we felt green and fresh, when we heard the name Freshman. We were somewhat uncertain and uneasy in the first few weeks of our exper- ience, as high school presented altogether a new life. New studies to take up. How- ever, our fears were soon dismissed, due to the sociability of the former students, and we began to work in earnest. Our first class meeting was called soon after school opened, officers were elected, and, “Green But Growing” was chosen as our motto. The tiresome feeling of work and study, has been broken now and then by pleasing and entertaining attractions, such as Foot Ball games, Socials, Plays, and the Thanksgiving holidays. Our history is short, and our achievements small, but in coming years, we trust that our class will surpass them all. And keeping in mind our motto, “Green But Growing,” we feel fresh and green, however, we are determined to trample failure under foot and move on higher towards success. B. T. Z., Class Historian.

Doors opened and eager voices were heard everywhere. In a room at the end of the west dormitory, two girls were busily packing to leave on the afternoon train for Medville. “I think your brother is adorable,” cried Molly Branton as she handed the picture to her chum, Peggy Mellon. “I am so glad I am going home with you.” Just a ghost of a smile was on Peggy’s lips as she looked up at her pretty little friend. “I guess you will like Tom,” said Peggy, “most girls do, but Tom is rather queer. He’s a .” But Peggy was interrupted frr a crowd of girls rushed in to tell Molly and Peggy goodbye. Peggy was tall and slender with straight black hair and an attractive face; while Molly was small and plump with short bobbed hair that curled around her charming face. “I’ll tell you about Tom on the train,” whispered Peggy in Molly’s ear as they went with the girls to the carriage, which was waiting outside. That afternoon when the two had comfortably seated themselves in the train for a rather tiresome journey, Molly turned to Peggy and asked her to tell her more about Tom. “He’s a bookworm,” said Peggy. “A bookworm!” exclaimed Molly. “Yes, you see Tom used to be sickly and to give him something to do while other healthy boys were out playing, mother and Dad got Tommy stacks of books to read. He got so in the habit of entertaining himself that way that he hardly does anything but read. Tommy is healthy now, but he likes to be alone and he’s shy with girls.” No more was said just then on the subject and both girls enjoyed themselves by observing their fellow-passengers until Medville was reached. It was so late when they reached Peggy’s home that Molly took little notice of anything, so she got up with a thrill the next morning. “Oh I’ve thought of a grand plan to include Tom in our fun,” said Molly as she began to dress. Molly briefly related it to Peggy and she accepted it with enthusiasm. They later told Mr. and Mrs. Mellon and they promised to help. They descended the stairs for breakfast and the family was already in the dining-room. Sixty-one Mr. and Mrs. Mellon received Molly warmly and she liked them at once. “Meet the bookworm of the family,” said Mr. Mellon as Molly turned to Tom. Tom fluslied but he held out his hand. “Surely they were mistaken,” thought Molly, as this handsome boy appeared sociable. After breakfast Peggy took Molly all over the house and the beautiful grounds. Peggy entertained many times but Torn was not present at the entertain- ments so Molly knew Peggy was not mistaken. Peggy agreed it was time to try their plan so they went down to the sitting- room and found Tom reading. “Ugh, horrid old bookworms,” cried Molly as she started out of the door seeming to think for sure that real bookworms would get on her. Tom flushed and left the room. Thereafter they tormented Tom every time he came around about bookworms and Mr. and Mrs. Mellon helped too and Tcm could read in peace only when he was in his room with the door locked. So he stayed in his room most of the time and Peggy and Molly were at a loss what to do next. It was the day before Christmas and snow was on the ground when Peggy thought of another plan. “Let’s write something and put it under his door,” she said to Molly. “You write it.” “Ail right,” agreed Molly and she wrote something on a piece of paper. Both laughed at the contents of it. Peggy caught her friend’s hand and pulled her up the stairs. They tiptoed to Tom’s door, slipped the note under it, and quietly went back down the stairs. Tom looked at the note awhile but his curiosity was so strong that he picked it up. This is what he read: “Dear Bookworm: If bookworms don’t freeze on a cold winter day, come and have some fun with us.” Tom laughed and all at once he desired to go with Molly and Peggy. Going- downstairs, he found them waiting dressed in wollen dresses and red sweaters and caps. Tom really enjoyed throwing snowballs at the girls and he wished he had been with Molly more. They had a beautiful Christmas tree the next day and Molly got a pretty wrist watch from Tom and many other beautiful presents, but she liked the watch best of all. Molly and Feggy have bost finished college and Molly is proudly wearing a large diamond, which Tom gave her. Tcm isn’t a bookworm any more, but Molly calls him one sometimes for fun but he doesn’t mind. D. A. Kealizing Your Ambition When one reaches the high school age and becomes a cog in the high school machinery, there comes into one’s life a feeling of importance. An address on how to succeed, given by one of the local failures is listened to with interest. The collar heretofore without accessories is now adorned with a four-in-hand. The “I took,” is discarded, and the higher sounding, “I taken,” takes it’s place. Books by the re- nowned Alger settle into the varnish of the book case, where " Emmerson’s Essays” have been pried up. Everything takes on a serious, but bright look. This continues for about a month. The seriousness deepens, but the brightness disappears. What is the use of attending school anyway? Why not launch out into the world and learn by experience ? Poor fool, think of learning by one’s own experience when the ex- periences of many learned men are offered in school. The world would not recognize one’s dreams and inspirations as stabilized material, and rightly not. If the wealthiest man on earth would finance the whim of every high school pupil, he would be reduced to bankruptcy by the applicants for inventions of perpetual motion machines alone. Another thing that comes about this time is a fiery hatred for “unnecessary” studies. Why should I study chemistry, geometry, etc ? These will not help me in life No they will not if you intend to dig ditches. But if you intend to do big things, if you intend to be well informed, they will. We all have our conceits in high school. One of them is to surprise the world. Let us do so then, by graduating some day. 0. S.

Turner James Funderburk James Walton Mae Ridling We Wonder What Would Happen If— Blanche Would stop kicking? James Walton would stop arguing on class? Shelby Bost would forget to paint? Hattie Goodnight would skip Home Economics class ? All H. S. Rules were abolished. The tenth grade would be quiet on class? Spontanious combustion. Pauline Tesh would forget to stick her hair behind her ears ? Miss Townsend (C. L.) would give an “A”? Mr. Cannon would fail to grant an excuse ? Miss Tinsley would stop giving demerits ? Rosalie Gillon would get a “B” on Chemistry? Miss Harris would forget to have a history lesson ? Ollie Davis would forget to have a grouch ? Lorene Smith would bob her hair. Elwood Durham didn’t have to stay in after school? Sloan Mitchem lived in the country. Seventy-three Miss Harris to Miss Williamson as they were hanging up their Christmas stockings — “Will that stocking hold all your heart desires?” Miss Williamson — (with a sigh) — ‘‘No, but two socks would.” Clem Smith saw a sign on a guide post in the country: “This will take you to Paxton.” He sat on the sign for two hours and then sadi, “I wonder when she ' s going to start.” Mabel Archer to her father — “Father can you sign your name with your eyes closed?” “Yes,” was her father’s reply. Mabel — “Well, close your eyes and sign my report.” Joe Revis — “Lend me fifty.” Bill Hasting — “I haven’t but forty.” Joe — “Give me that and you owe me ten.” Sue Maulden — “I’m wild to travel in Europe.” Hilda Garlinghouse — “Huh, I’d lots rather travel in France and Italy.” Lecturer on woman suffrage — “Now, what would follow if all the women were taken out of Kannapolis?” Eugene Funderburk — “I would.” Mr. Smyre rapped on his desk and said, “Order! Order!” Jimmy Walton, sleepily: “Ham and Eggs, please.” The Dr. to Shelby Bost — “How are you feeling today?” Shelby — “Very well, except my breathing is bad.” Dr. — “Well, I’ll stop that tomorrow.” The Bride’s Maid — “Weren’t you nervous when you were getting married?” Miss Luz — “No, not after he said, ‘I will’.” Roy Rollins had just received a letter from the city license department telling him to get rid of his car as his license had expired. This is the letter which the department received — Dear Sirs: — I got your letter yesterday. My ccw beat you to it, because she expired three days ago. Grocery Baseball Comes To Bat Excitement bubbled over recently when two Grocery Baseball leagues played their “world series” games. A “Twenty Mule Team” drew the players to “Ball Brothers Park.” The game was called by “Salad Dressing” because of his pre mier knowledge of the rules. The Domestics were in the field with “Tangle-foot” catching and “Prince Albert” smoking them over from the box. “Spearment Wrigley” was on first chewing with the ump. “Caggage” played his usual heady game at second. “Oleo” at short went strong. “Smoked Herring” pulled a bone on third, but “Potatoe” had his eyes open in right field. “Domino” was sweet in center, while “Pepper” pulled some red hot ones in left. In the beginning of the 9th inning the National Advertisers were at bat and “Swan’s Down” took the cake with a safe hit to deep center and advanced to second when “Gordon’s Codfish” drew four balls. “Krafty Cheese” went home but “Argo Starch” was to stiff to run so “Brer Rabbit” was sent in to run for him. “Canada Dry” popped up and was out at first. “Libby’s” tried to “Ketchup” with a home run and “Heinz’ beaned one over the fence but “Bon Ami” couldn’t scratch a hit so was out at first. “Karo” hit a sweet one by third but it went for a foul fly and “Flit” 1 killed it retiring the side and the Advertisers won. “Palmoline” was at the game. Dressed in green crepe and was said to be the prettiest maid there. She was with old “Mama” Syrup.
