CLASS HlSTORYCOnfinuecl That was also the year that ever one attended the laying of the cornerstone for the new A. L. Brown High School, which was at last becoming a reality. The long awaitedmhip to Washington, D. C., by the United States history classes also became an unbelievable reality. We saw many historical buildings and stopped at the enchanting Luray Caverns on the return trip. This tour proved educational and enjoyable to everyone who went. In May we, the juniors, honored the seniors with a momentous junior-Senior Banquet at the Y.M.C.A. followed b a prom at the school gym. The theme "Hitch Yyour Wagon to a Star" was carried out with miniature wagons hitched to glittering stars. Appro riate songs for the occa- sion were sung by littlfe Miss Dannie kigman. Linny Baker was secretary of the Student Cov- ernment that year. This was also the year in which we won the plaque from Curtis Circulation Company for outstanding accomplishments in selling maga- zines. Our total sales amounted to S1,797.54. Climaxing the year was the receiving of our class rings in May. These we proudly polished and showed off for the remainder of the year. They were different that year, because of the fact that we would be the first class to graduate from A. L. Brown High School. The last and larger wave starts toward us in an unruly, happy-go-lucky manner. It hardly seemed true that we were now, at last, "Dignified Seniors." We began the ear by electing our class offi- cers. We chose Igenneth Argo to be president, vice-president, Benny Wright, secretary, Ruth Eanesg and treasurer, Bill Bennett. To serve in Council were Carolyn Bost and Charles Efird. Phyllis Thompson became prophet and Earl Lentz, our lawyer. At the first of the year, there was the awful girind of senior pictures, club pictures, and many t ings which had to be done to go into the Senior Edition of the CANNON REPORT. Everyone considered it worth all the trouble, though, when we received our treasured books. Then came the two most outstanding and en- joyable events, the Senior-junior, and the junior- Senior. Each was a success, and Millicent Rosen- burg, social chairman, Mr. R. D. Boone, Miss Nella Harris, and Mrs. Virginia Alexander did a wonderful job in making plans for the Senior- junior event. Page Thirty-eight There was the excitement of orderin calling cards, invitations, caps and gowns, and diplomas. We could hardly wait for Senior Day so that wi could enjoy an outing at one of the nearby la es. Senior adviser, Miss Loraine Cray, and the many helpful committees aided us in choosing our colors, lavender and silvery our flower, thc orchid, class poem, motto, "The will to do, the soul to dare", class son , and mascots, Dana Lec- brick and Cynthia joinson. We dedicated our Yearbook to Miss Rebecca Slate, who had so freely devoted her services to us. Linny Baker became president of our Student Government our last year in high school and Buck Cooke was vice-president. The title of "Miss Hi Miss," chosen on the basis of beauty, scholarship, and character, was awarded to Dot Childers, while Carolyn Bost was awarded that of "Miss Cannon High." Then the wave rushes toward us with a mighty surge as we remember the breath-taking entering of our new school, A. L. Brown High School. This was a wonderful occasion to which everyone had looked with great anticipation. The school was wonderful! It was as much and more than we had expected. We, the Senior Class, having been the Hrst to graduate from A. L. Brown High School, hope that all classes follow- ing us will have enjoyed it as much as we did. Then, as though the entire Ocean of Mem- ories were pushing it, the mi hty wave roars in, splashing its spray u on our faces, and bringing with it the ending of, all our high school years- graduation. It was a grand, happy, and sad occa- sion, all wrapped into one. We walked proudly across the new stage of the A. L. Brown High School and marched into our many varied and scattered ways of life, never to relive that night again. But we'll never forget our Alma Mater, A.'L. Brown High School, and what it meant to us, and always there'll be a tender place in our hearts for what Cannon High meant to us, too. As we turn to walk on down the Beach of Life, we notice that the outgoing tide is carrying our four precious waves back out into the Ocean of Memories so that we may return to this spot again to relive those four wonderful years.
