' t-r • s ” yoo K ' lV ' - The Tioneer FODEWOHD It has been our aim in producing “The Pioneer of 1927” to collect within it’s pages all that is happiest and best in our high school life. We hope that this book may serve to keep more bright memories of days at K. H. S.— the friendships and associations, gaities and pleasures, and the hours of work and strife in interschool contests. We have done our best to accomplish this pur- pose, and if you are pleased, our work has not been in vain. 1927 5 The Pioneer DEDICATION 1 To him who lias labored that we might find the highest and best in life; to him who by his noble example has taught us to honor the right and revere the truth; to him whom we love with an unfailing love; to REDMON COLE CANNON this volume of the Pioneer is lovingly, and grate- fully dedicated by the Senior Class. 1927 5 The Tioneet REDMON COLE CANNON 1927 The ' Tioneer Faculty t H.

No matter how hard the task might be, Working earnestly was what you’d see From the Class of ’27. Loyal! Each and all. Brave! To every call.

For this goal we have reached merely leads Our way to greater and nobler deeds Says the Class of ’27. Adieu! Dear friends, of yore. Farewell! We say once more.

In Keller we find a faithful student, for he has the honor of exemption from his mid-term exams. Keller is always in for a good time whenever a chance af- fords one, but he doesn ' t let his pleasure interfere with his studies. We, as well as old K. H. S., will miss his friendship, and smiling disposition. MABEL ARCHER President of Class ' 24; Cannon Lit- erary Society ’24, ' 25, ’26, ’27; Glee Club ’25; Home Economics Club ’26, ’27; Ath- letic Association ' 25; Commercial Club ’27; Subscription Editor, Pioneer ’27. We will all remember “Our Independent Blonde, " Mable. She is a good student, and there is nothing that passes over her head. We are afraid she will soon forget the Senior Class as her heart seems to be at Pinehurst, but we hope she will not forget us, as she is very much loved by all. LILLIAN BRASWELL Entered ’26; Philomathean Literary So- city ’27; Commercial Club ’27. Even tho Lillian hasn’t been with us but one year she is loved by all. She is a booster of our school and a loyal Senior. Some day she’ll be a business woman. 18 CLARA COBB Entered ’25; Cannon Literary Society ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Glee Club ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Home Economics Club ' 25, ' 26; Commercial Club ' 27; Athletic Association ' 26, ' 27. Yes, here she is, our naughty little “Cobby,” she seems to get by with it, though, and is considered one of our most popular Seniors, especially during recitations. The teachers think her much too smart for her size, and yet she is loved by all the Faculty, and her class- mates. RAYMOND BRINKLEY Entered ' 26; Cannon Society ' 26; Class Testator ' 26, ' 27. Raymond joined our class this year. We were glad to have him come to us in our last days of High School. He is one of the most dignified and studious boys in K. H. S., and doesn ' t seem to be inter- ested in the opposite sex. Despite these facts we all like him, and know he will be successful in whatever he undertakes in the future. OLLIE DAVIS Phi Kappa Alpha Society ’24; Philo- mathean Society ' 25, ’26, ’27; Glee Club ' 24, ' 25, ' 26. ' 27; President of Commercial Club ' 27; Vice-President Home Economics Club ' 26; Athletic Association ' 26, ' 27; Captain Varsity Basketball ’25, ' 26, ' 27; Athletic Editor Pioneer ' 27. Even though Ollie was voted the most sarcastic Senior, she has a winning smile and a host of friends. She is ever ready for a big time and always there with the goods. Ollie is our best athlete too, and is Captain of the Basketball team. She is a good sportsman, and is loyal to her friends and school. 19 MARY LENA GRAEBER CLARENCE DAVIS Monitor of Tar Heel Literary Society ’22, ' 23; Old Hickory Literary Society ’23, ' 24; Varsity Basketball ' 23, ' 24; Treasurer of Glee Club ' 24, ' 25; Athletic Association ' 24, ' 25; Treasurer of Class ' 24, ’25, ' 26; Glee Club ' 23, ' 24, ’25, ' 26, ' 27; President of Glee Club ' 26, ’27; President of Cannon Literary Society ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Exchange Editor of Pioneer Staff ' 27; Winner of Popularity Contest ' 27. Mary is the winner of our Popularity Contest, which proves that she is the kind of girl that every body loves. She is possessor of a sweet disposition, a graceful figure, a pretty face, a genial na- ture, and many hearts, especially one — ask Everette. She’s a good student, too. K. H. S. will miss her. Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ’24; Philomathean Literary Society ’25; Pres- ident of Class ’25; Cannon Literary So- ciety ' 26, ' 27; Pioneer Editor-in-Chief ' 27; Exemption from Mid-term Examinations ’27. We have enjoyed having Clarence with us during the entire four years at K. H. S. He is very popular — just before Geom- etry period especially. He is noted for burning the mid-night oil to get exempted from his exams. He really is our most intellectual Senior. MARY ETHEL FISHER Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Philomathean ' 25, ’26, ’27; Secretary of Class ’26; Glee Club ’26, ’27; Commercial Club ' 27; Class Prophet ’27. Here’s to Mary Ethel, one of our in- dependent Seniors and an A grade stu- dent. We often wonder why she is a star student, for we are sure her mind is not always on books. Even though her temper runs away with her sometimes, she has made many friends during her high school career at K. H. S. She is loved by all of her classmates. Our pro- phet is she, and we’re wondering what fortunes are ours. 20 MYRTLE LEE JOYNER Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Glee Club ' 25, ' 26; Home Economics Club ' 26, ' 27; Cannon Literary Society ' 27. “Myrt” has been with us during all four years of our climb. She ' s just a carefree school-girl — can laugh with the happy and weep with the sad. She claims a good disposition, is attractive, and en- tertaining. She is always on the look- out for fun. A better sport is not to be found. We feel sure that she’ll succeed in anything she tackles. MYRTLE IRENE GOODNIGHT Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Cannon Literary Society ' 24, ' 26, ' 27; Ath- letic Association ’24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Glee Club ' 24. ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Home Economics Club ' 25, ' 26; Commercial Club ' 27. If we ever got blue, Which none of us do, We’d all have to turn ' to Myrt, She ' s a friend beyond measure In business or pleasure, Always awake and alert. Myrtle is mischievous; she knows how to pull a joke, and how to take one. She ' d like to be dignified but nature did not will it so. Besides her winning ways, she ' s the prettiest girl in the class, a ' nd can really tickle the ivories. JOHN NELSON HALSTEAD Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ’24; Athletic Association ' 24, ' 27; Cannon Lit- erary Society ' 25, ' 26, ' 27. John — not Gilbert, but Halstead — is our most handsome Senior — our star of Holly- wood. He’s a star in more ways than one — in geometry and physics for in- stance. Some say he ' s cute, well, in fact he is. Popular? Uh-huh; good-looking? Yeh, boy; good sport? Why sure; all this and then some cause “Ladies Prefer Blondes. " 21 LEO McCOMBS Philomathean Literary Society ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27. " Speaking of girls? " Yes, Leo is right there, and we don’t blame them for lik- ing him because he always looks like a dancing master. He really is one of our most handsome Seniors, but Leo is very modest and unassuming anyway. When it comes to books, History is his hobby, We are sure his winning personality will win for him scores of friends, and that his future career will be crowned with success and happiness. JENNIE REYN McKINLEY Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Cannon Literary Society ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Sec- retary Home Economics Club ' 26; Ath- letic Association ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Kodak Editor of Pioneer ' 27. An old saying is, “Beware of red-haired women, " but in this case you need have no fear. " Jen " was voted our " most at- tractive Senior. " Who is any more at- tractive than she? All the girls envy her hair, even though it is red, and her eyes too. She ' s here, there, and everywhere, and if she wasn ' t — well, things " jest wouldn ' t go. " Jennie Reyn is very glad That Landis is so near, Because someone who lives there To her is very dea r. EDWIN WITHERSPOON LIPE Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Secretary of Class ' 25; Athletic Associa- tion ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Cannon Literary Society 25, ' 26, ' 27; Glee Club ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Secretary Cannon Literary Society ' 26; Chairman Program Committee Can- non Literary Society ' 27; Vice-President Glee Club ' 26; Secretary Class ' 27; Busi- ness Manager Pioneer ' 27. Edwin, our " most popular boy,” cer- tainly deserves the honor. No party, pic- nic. or anything, is complete without him, even in school. He’s a good sport and always in for a big time. He is popu- lar, handsome, cute, witty, and not so dumb about the ways of the world. Here ' s to Edwin, one of our best loved and most studious classmates. 22 EVERETTE RANDOLPH McKINLEY Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ’24; Vice-President of Class ’24; Athletic As- sociation ' 24, ' 25; Varsity Basketball ’25, ' 26; Captain of Football ' 25, ' 26; Philo- raathean Literary Society ' 25, ’26, ’27; Treasurer of Philomathean Literary So- ciety ' 25. If it has anything to do with the girls, Everette is right there. He seems to know all about this subject. But that isn’t all he knows; he can play football too. In fact he knows a lot more than you would think. We all think he is good looking, especially some folks. He is also noted for his lovable disposition. Indeed, he is the kind of fellow we ' d like to loaf with — honest, sincere, open-minded, and generous. A1LEEN MOOSE Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Glee Club ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Cannon Literary Society ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Chairman Program Committee Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Athletic Association ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Class Poet ' 26, ' 27; Home Eco- nomics Club ’25, ' 26; Commercial Club ' 27. You ' ve heard a lot about pep, haven’t vou? Well that ' s Aileen all over. " Skinny " is just a bunch of enthusiasm and pep tied up together with a few brains. She ' s not lazy or shiftless, but believes in, " Never do today what you can put off ' til tomorrow.” Without her ’Boat, " we ' d more than likely drop ex- hausted by the wayside. She ' s our life saver. She ' s always kicking but not the way you’d think, just the " Charleston. " ANNIE PEARL MOSER Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Class Treasurer ' 25; Program Committee, Chairman Cannon Literary Society ' 25; Class Poet ' 26; Athletic Association ' 24, ’25, ’26, ' 27; Cannon Literary Society ’25, ’26, ’27; Glee Club ’24, ' 25, ’26, ’27; Critic of Cannon Literary Society ’27; Secre- tary and Treasurer Glee Club ' 27; Treas- urer Class ’27. Annie Pearl was voted " Best all- around " in the Senior Class, but she should have been voted Best-all-around in the whole school. There is not a bet- ter booster, a cuter, a more attractive girl, or a better sport to be found in school than she. Her talk is worth listen- ing to, her laugh is worth hearing. She has a charm about her that is irresistable. She’s always in for everything — and how she can sing! A humming bird should envy her voice. We hope Annie ' s future will hold for her much happiness. 23 BETTY PRO PST Vice-President Class ' 24; Vice-Presi- dent Phi Kappa Alpha ' 24; Debator ' 24; Glee Club ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Home Eco- nomies Club ' 25, ' 26; Cannon Literary So- ciety ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; President Home Eco- nomics Club ' 26; Chairman Program Com- mittee Cannon Literary Society ' 26; Girls ' Basketball Manager ' 27; Class Giftorian ’27; Vice-President Commercial Club ’27; Athletic Association ’24, ’25, ’26, ’27. Although Betty is just a handful, she has a mind of her own, a will of her own, and a charm all her own. So she says what she thinks, does what she wants to, and we can’t explain the rest, but we all know that the fourth finger on the left hand is the tell-tale. MABEL MOZELLE POOLE Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ’24; Home Economics Club ’25, ’26; Cannon Literary Society ’26, ’27. “Moze” has traveled the rugged moun- tains and peaceful plains during our four years journey. She proves to be a “hit or miss pal,” never worrying over any- thing. She has several valuable traits; a determination to rank highest as a French student; a good disposition; and originality. We will surely miss her rip- pling laugh when she leaves us. EVERTTE L. MURPH Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Member of Philomathean Society ' 25, ’26, ’27. Evertte is always the same old boy, laughing and taking life easy. He is stu- dious and one of our most reliable Seniors, why, he made exemption on “Geometry” mid-term exam. He never gives his teachers any trouble, although he does like the girls. He has a sweet, smiling face that is bound to win for him a “lady fair” some day. 24 FODA AVARY ROBINSON Phi Kappa Alpha Society ' 24; Philo- mathean Literary Society ’25, ' 26, 27; Class Poet ' 27. By such a girl as Foda the real worth of our class -is measured. She ' s been with us four years and we all love her. She ' s a jolly old pal we all look for when we’re blue. She ' ll never go crazy (over the men), but if she should lose her mind we would all like to find it. She has two talents, originality and music. We won ' t be surprised when we hear of her success, for nothing but success can come to a girl like Foda. ROY E. ROLLINS Old Hickory Literary Society ' 24; Var- sity Football ’25, ’26; Philomathean So- ciety ' 25; Class Critic ' 25; Varsity Bas- ketball ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Cannon Literary So- ciety ' 26, ' 27; Athletic Association ' 25, ' 26, ' 27. " Country” is one of the best basketeers we have on our team. He is also the most original boy of the Senior Class. When we go on a basketball trip and have supper his time-worn order is, “Two eggs over light.” " Country, " though, is not a bit countrified. You oughta see him with the ladies! ELIZABETH ROGERS Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Philomathean Literary Society ’25, ’26, ' 27; Home Economics Club ’26. " Lib,” giggled her way to high school, through it, and we are waiting to see her giggle through the world to success. She is a jolly, attractive and mischievous girl. Studies are too much to bother her pretty head. We expect some day Eliza- beth will ably balance the other end of a breakfast table. 25 ESTELLE SIMS Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ’24: Philomathean Literary Society ’25, ' 26, ’27; Home Economics Club ’26. Fifteen pounds attractiveness, ten pounds popularity, ten pounds deviltry, twelve pounds jollity, six pounds original- ity, seven pounds bluff, twelve pounds curiosity, eleven pounds wit, eight pounds ability, nine pounds work, ten pounds pep, five pounds dignity. Mix the above ingredients carefully in the indicated proportions and you will have the sum — total, 115 pounds — Estelle. BEATRICE SIDES Phi Kappa Alpha ' 24; Cannon Literary Society ’25, ’26, ' 27; Athletic Association ’25, -’27; Glee Club ’ 24 - ’ 26 ; Varsity Basket- ball ’25-’27; - Home Economics Club ’25, ’26. Beatrice, better known as “Be-be,” was voted the " cutest” member of the Senior Class. Not only is she cute, but she’s good-looking, popular, and a good sport. " Be-be " shakes a wicked hoof when it comes to doing the Charleston; and they say she ' s a knock-out with the other, sex. (Say, " Be-be " where have you been? We guess it’s Mooresville.) OLIN EVERETTE SCARBORO Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ’24; Philomathean Literary Society ’25; Secre- tary of Philomathean Society ’26; Presi- dent ’27; Glee Club ’25; Athletic Associa- tion ’25, ’26, ’27; Cheer Leader ’25, ’27; Class Treasurer ’25; Historian ’25, ’27; Essay Medal ’26; Art Editor Pioneer ’27. " Nilo” is talkative — there’s a reason. He’s been running a race for four years trying to out-talk " Mutt.” We hope he wins! We know Nilo will be domestic some day — He belongs to the Oak Street Knitting Circle. 26 GRACE LORENE SMITH Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Philomathean Literary Society ’25, ’26, ' 27; Vice-President of Class ' 25; Treasur- er of Class ' 26; Home Economics Club ' 26; Glee Club ' 26, ’27; Literary Editor of Pioneer ' 27. Yes, here is " Lo,” the sweetest in our class — never an unkind word spoken to anyone. This honor was bestowed upon her, not for the name of it, but for the fact that she has proved it to be true during her four years with us at K. H. S. " Lo " is one of the most popular Seniors and takes an interest in all school activities. ALLIE MAE SMITH Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Cannon Literary Society ' 25, ' 26. ' 27; Glee Club ' 24, ' 26, ' 27; Home Economics Club ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Basketball Team ' 25, ' 26. Allie Mae keeps her head, and never loses her temper. We wish we had more like her. She ' s a good student, and a loyal and sincere friend. She’s quiet and mod- est, and attends to her own business and allows others the same privilege. Y r es, she believes in fun when there’s a time for it. Allie Mae has a talent for music. We won’t be surprised when we hear of her success. PAULINE TESH Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ’24; Cannon Literary Society ’25, ' 26, ' 27; Home Economics Club ’26; Athletic Asso- ciation ' 24, ’25, ’26, ' 27; Subscription Edi- tor Pioneer ’27. What every man knows is that " Polly” has " eyes that talk.” She’s a good sport, always ready for any amount of fun and frolic, and willingly furnishes her part in the good times. Lively? Yes, Boy! If her independence would get her any- where she ' d be " Sitting on Top of the World. " Who ' s the " Guy " that drives A Ford Sedan? Ask " Polly,” she knows about The tall man. 27 JAM ES WALTON, JR. Phi Kappa Alpha ' 24.

Jimmy reminds us all of an electric current. No, he is not as shocking as that may sound — but he has the quiet power and force. He doesn ' t shine himself, but my what he can start! Jimmy is one of the finest foundations of our class — perfectly immovable. He must have a keen sense of humor, for ' tis remembered that he once giggled out loud at the " Ancient Mariner.” VIVIAN VIRGINIA VIOLA Entered ' 27; Glee Club ' 27; Commercial Club ' 27; Athletic Association ' 27; Can- non Literary Society ' 27. V. V. V. A whole string of V’s come dancing down the road, and in a minute you ' ll see Virginia evolve from the tangle. — A girl like you imagine the Queen of Sheba was — quiet and brainy she is, dis- approving the old theory, because beauty and brains meet here. A private secretary she will probably make— one that any man will be proud of. 28 EDNA BLANCH WALTER Plii Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Philomathean Literary Society ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Home Economics Club ' 25, ' 26; His- torian ' 26; Vice-President Philomathean Literary Society ' 27; Glee Club ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Chairman of Program Commit- tee Philomathean Literary Society ' 27; Varsity Basketball ’27; Athletic Associa- tion ’24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27; Cheer Leader ' 27; Business Manager " Pioneer ' ' ' 27. Blanch was voted our most popular girl, and I’ll say she is, becauses he is the only girl is our Senior Class who has to keep a date calendar. She’s a star too, ana some day she ' ll be the rival of Cor- rine Griffith, and maybe she’ll play with Richard Dix. Peppy? Attractive? Good dancer? Booster? — Yes, all this, and pret- ty too. PHILIP MONROE WIDENHOUSE Secretary Phi Kappa Alpha Literary Society ' 24; Class Debator ' 24; Master of Ceremonies, Junior-Senior Banquet ' 26; Athletic Association ' 24, ’25, ' 26; Presi- dent ' 27; Scrub Football ' 26; Scrub Base- ball ' 26; Varsity Basketball ’26, ' 27; Pres- ident of Class ’27. “Mutt, " — that’s his nick name — favors Lincoln " sorta " — that brainy, executive look, you know. Athletic? Well, I reck- on! Just name the sport and he goes to reeling off a lot of " Spalding. " He reads books galore, including Blackstone. The fact of the matter is, he is liable to clear up a good many scandals in the future. 29 The Tioneer History of The Qlass of ’ 27 f CHAPTER I Ages ago, when the world was still young, and Santa Claus hadn’t stopped coming around on the 25th of December the class of ’27 made its debut into high school life. That’s all that happened during the first year, except a “Trip Around the World,” in which the eighth grade represented “America,” and “Alaska.” Oh yes, there was something else, Mark Anthony’s speech at Caesar’s funeral. You remember that, don’t you ? We heard and repeated it so much, that it seemed as if the undertaker had for- gotten to embalm the corpse. CHAPTER II During our second high school year we moved into a new building — a beautiful building, with an auditorium, a library and a roof, but more especially a library, be- cause it just fitted in with our St. Patrick party plans. A play, “The Flapper Grandmother,” was given during this year, and we furnished the chorus girls. CHAPTER III. An Art Exhibit, numerous parties, and two plays, “The Microbe of Love,” and “See You Later,” were all features of 1926. Greatly overshadowing these was the Junior- Senior Banquet. The Seniors buried hatchets with the Juniors, and came out in full force. The rooms were elaborately decorated in several kinds of flowers. Courses were served, and classical selections were rendered as interludes. We had a speaker from Elon Col- lege, and a rip-roaring good time. If you don’t believe it, just ask any of those present. CHAPTER IV. No, no, we will have no remarks about little green freshies gazing with awe upon celestial Seniors, and at last climbing the ladder to the top round, and looking back down the weary trail at those plodding along in our footprints. May those who say this, turn into salt as did Lot’s wife, and be placed in an airtight museum case. Instead, let us picture a real Senior, minus the dignity he is said but not supposed to have, and with about as much practical, living earning knowledge as a grasshop- per’s grandmother. This is the type, and K. H. S. has them. -Every member of the class of ’27, is a typical example of — well, there is nothing to compare them with. Let’s get down to business now. We, in our Senior year, were alternately hosts and guests at numerous receptions. We picked cotton, to earn money for the Pioneer. And as the year is not up at the time of this writing, we hope to become Movie Stars yet. Practice for such will be had in the commencement exercises which promise to be the best ever. Authors note: For a more accurate and detailed account of parties, receptions, etcs., as well as samples of the silverware, see the Memory Book of any female K. H. S. Senior, of the class of ’27. Olin Searboro, Historian. 1927 30 The Tioneer Class ' Prophecy of ’27 One fine spring day I was roaming through the forest drinking in the fresh, pure air. As I wandered along, watching the insects and admiring the beauty of the plants, I came into a thick grove of tall pines. Here the sun could not get in, and because of the overhanging of the branches it was as if twilight had suddenly appeared. The wind, blowing through the branches, whistled a mournful song. The appearance of this place made me feel superstitious and I stood still for a moment and listened. From out of the forest came the sound of a voice: “Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble.” I waited and listened. Again I could hear the murmur of the voice. When I had become a bit braver I decided that I would see what all this meant. Taking a few steps, I saw a bent figure dressed in black, leaning on a cane. As I drew nearer I realized it was the witch. A thought ran through my mind and then I hastened my steps to where the witch stood. I asked her if she would tell me what my classmates of ’27 would be doing in ’37. She placed me on a chair and waved her cane in the air, murmuring as she did so. A spell of drowsiness came upon me and I fell asleep, to the droll of her, “Double, double, toil and trouble.” “After traveling for seven years in the old land where you have visited Biblical scenes, you will return to your home in America. While on the steamer to New York you will see on the front page of the New York World: ‘Four of the world’s greatest singers will appear here tonight. The selection will be one of the latest hits, ‘Sweetly brays the Donkey.’ Lyric Soprano, Miss Aileen Moose; Mezzo Soprano, Miss Annie Pearle Moser; Tenor, Mr. Edwin Lipe; Bass, Mr. Raymond Brinkley. Miss Myrtle Goodnight will accompany them at the piano.’ As you turn the front page you will behold the picture of three basket-ball play- ers. At the top will be: ‘The Famous Three,’ the world’s champion basketball players, ‘Mutt’ P. Widenhouse, ‘Country’ Rollins, and ‘Jimmy’ Walton. On the same page a picture of Jennie Reyn McKinley who has become one of the most beautiful artist’s model, will be seen. When you arrive in New York you will go to the Grand Opera and there you will find Lou Ella Harmon as a great actress. At the Hotel New York you will find the dietition to be Pauline Tesh. 1927 31 The Tioneer On the following Sunday, as you approach the ‘Little Church Around the Corner, which you have heard so much talk of, you will behold a bride and groom coming dowr the church steps. You will find the groom to be Leo McCombs and the bride the former Mary Graeber. After you have stayed a few weeks in New York you will go to Baltimore, where you will meet Betty Propst who is a dealer in diamonds. She will show you her rare collection of diamonds, better known as the ‘Moore Diamonds.’ You will learn from her that three of your classmates are associated with the great John Hopkin’s Hospital. Visiting the hospital, you will find Lillian Braswell as a great surgeon, and with her the Twin Nurses, Estelle Sims and Elizabeth Rogers.’ You will go shopping in that city and over a millinery shop you will see the sign, ‘Joyner’s Millinery Shop.’ Entering you will find your friend Myrtle Joyner. After visiting in Baltimore, you will go to Washington where you will visit the art museum. While you are looking at the beautiful painting, Ina Orr will come along. After talking a few minutes you will learn that she is a great artist and that most of the beautiful paintings there are hers. In Washington, you will visit the kindergarten and find Lorene Smith teaching and playing with the children. At the city library while looking at the books and authors you will come across a copy of Robinson’s poems. After inspecting it you will find the author to be Foda Robinson, who has become quite famous with her poetry. After a stay in Washington you will return to your home town, Kannapolis. When you arrive the first person you see will be Keller Brantley, who will be selling pea- nuts. You will learn from him that he is the proud owner of a five-acre peanut farm a few miles from the city. Keller will be rich some day. While at home you will meet up with Ollie Davis, whom you will learn is a physical director at the Y. M. C. A. You will be sure to visit the new museum in Kannapolis, and there you will see the rare botanical and zoological specimens collected by John Halstead. They are his pride and joy. After spending a few months at home you will travel south. In Charlotte you will find Virginia Viola as a private secretary. On a poultry farm you will find Clara Cobb tending her chickens. At the High School you will find Clarence Davis a professor of languages. 1927 32 The Tioneer After a stay in this city you will go to Columbia, where you will hear one of the best lectures ever delivered in History on the subject, ’To Be or Not To Be,’ by Allie Mae Smith. A few days later you will go to Atlanta. While there you will meet up with Olin Scarboro who is a great cartoonist. He will tell you that Mabel Archer is in the city and that she is a great architect. You will visit her and see some of her new plans for modern homes. While there you will go to a circus where you will find one of the clowns to be Everette Murph. After a few months’ visit in Atlanta you will go to Florida to see the wonders of nature, and to enjoy its beauty. Blanche Walter will appear at the Fleetwood as one of the greatest dancers of the day. Hollywood claims her as its own, but spares her for a week at Florida’s request. You will find Moz elle Poole living in her little bungalow in an orange grove.” Suddenly a rustling wind woke me from the spell and I was still in the forest. This was only a vision. I have told the prophecy to you as it was told to me. Mary Ethel Fisher, Class Prophet ’27. 1927 33 The ' Pioneer Last Will and Testament 1 We, the Class of ’27 of the Kannapolis High School, being in good bodily health, according to the criterion prescribed by Bill Mauldin, and of sound mind, having plumed our wings for flight relative to our departure from this sphere, and realizing that we must soon close our eyes on examination papers and drop from our cold grasp the things of High School days for which we have toiled and probably sinned, do make and publish this, our last Will and Testament.

We cannot afford to deal with people who never say a kind word and never joke, but are always solemn and pessimistic, but we like people who are happy and optomistic and are in- terested in our interests. There is no better example of this than the story of David and Jonathan. King Saul hated David and commanded the servants and Jonathan, his son, that they kill David but Jonathan loved him “as he did his own soul,” so he told him to flee from the country. This David did and he was saved. He later became an out- law, ravaging fields and farms for something to eat. He had Saul in his power sev- eral times but he always let him go. I think that deep down in his heart David loved him. Another great instance of friendship is during the Last Supper when our Great Teacher said that He would give up his life for his friends. That is true friendship. If one is a true friend to anyone he will be willing to die for his friend. It seems that in this twentieth century girls do not like boys except for his car or his money or his good looks. I do not think that this is true friendship. Some girls will be nice to boys and then talk bad about them to another girl or boy. There is nothing more inspiring than to see a boy really love a girl; brother really and truly love his sister (this doesn’t seem hardly possible as much as they quarrel); mother love daugh- ter; father love son; mother and father love each other; and greatest of all is to see someone really love God. He is our greatest Friend and Teacher. He never fails us in trouble or at any other time. No matter how bad or how good you are if your friend is a true one, he or she loves you just the same: “A friend is one who knows all about you And loves you just the same.” Some people love you and then when they hear something bad about you, they even fail to recognize you, which is a poor excuse. Anyone who would do this is not a true friend. Friendship is the secret of the universe. If it were not for this great word and act this world would be very unhappy. There would be no happiness, love, life, inventions, schools, churches, missionaries or anything good which we have today. 1927 82 The Tioneer True friendship will make a man a man. It will make him honest, it will make him a hero, and it will make him a saint if he chooses the right kind of person for a friend. If he chooses the wrong kind of person for one and he is vacillating, he be- comes just as his friend. At the altar when one takes the vows of marriage — this is the greatest kind of friendship, to live through the “thick and thin” of life together. One’s mate for life should be carefully selected for it is not right to marry and then be divorced. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This is oftimes called the “thirteenth commandment” and it is wisely called such. When you say something bad about your friend surely you wouldn’t want him to say the same thing about you. If you would say something good about him you would surely want him to say some- thing good of you. A good example of the “thirteenth commandment” is in the Bible when this poor man had been robbed and striped of his clothes by thieves. A priest and a Levite came along and ignored him entirely, but a Samaritan came by and took him to an inn; bound his wound and cared for him as if he were his brother. Books are also friends. Sometimes they are the best of friends that one can have for they always agree with you and never quarrel about anything. Music and art are also good friends. There is nothing more educating and uplifting than beautiful music and paintings. Jesus is our great Friend. “What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear, What a privilege to carry, Everything to God in prayer.” This is one of the greatest hymns that was ever written and it is as popular as any other song in the world. We can afford to open our gates to our friends at all times, especially when we need them. “A friend in need, is a friend indeed.” The value of a true friend is unlimited and unexpressible. “Everything in the world may end, But our friend will forever be our friend.” — Edwin Lipe ’27. 1927 83 The Pioneer “Our Idea of a Good Time” Making a “copy list” for the Annual.
