This success was due to the co-operation of the entire Senior Class, and the excellent ability displayed by the cast. Without the fidelity, and patience of the directors, the play would have been a miserable failure. wr :ac :ac Pk As in everything else, the Seniors surpass in clramatics. The class of '27 is proud of the fact that within its walls are found four persons who excell along the line of dramatics. This statement was proved, when Mr. Hall and Miss Lewis took Nina Cranford, Katherine Milton, Lois Watson, and Macon Rowland to Charlotte, and won second place in the state contest. One of the most enjoyable events of the school year, both for the Jtmiors and Seniors, was the junior-Senior banquet. It was clearly shown that the Juniors had co-operated, and worked very hard in order to make every Senior have the best time of his life-and everyone did. An enjoyable pro- gram was carried out, while the most appetizing eats were being served. In behalf of the Seniors, we appreciateevery- thing you have done, and hope the coming Juniors will repay you for the kindness you have shown us. The Seniors cannot be outwitted. There is nothing we can't do. We can play ball, take part in plays, skip school and sing. It is known that we can sing because the greater part of the cast in "The Gypsy Rover" was from the Senior class. The choruses were very pretty, and the beauty of them was added to by the numerous and attrac- tive costumes. All costumes were made by the mem- bers, which showed another sign of work. P Although we compliment the Glee Club on the entire operetta, we must add an extra word to the Seniors. On November 15, the twosectionsof the Senior History Classes presented the pageant, "The Spirit of Independence." The pageant proved to be a great success. This was due to the faithfulness of both major and minor characters. The entire drama was given in colonial costumes, which added reality to the scenes. The couples in the minuet and Virginia Reel wore typical colonial costumes, perfect in every respect. :ne Pk wr ac Of course there is no hatred or jealousy among the two sections of our Senior Class, but Section I does feel proud to have defeated Section II in the school pep meeting. It is said, Hthat you can't keep a good dog'down." So Section I sprang to the front. We've got our rep, welve got our pep, and we've got our picture too. We have the cheer leader in our class which is an advantage .over the others. With Nina Cranford as leader, who could help but do his best? And too, we have only two. boys, and as the usual saying goes-a bunch of girls can make the biggest noise of anything. A number of "poppy" yells were used which were later adopted as class yells. We have nowyell We need no yell But when we yell - We yell like-S-e-n-i-o-r-s ! ! . Randy, dandy, handy Pete, Senior Class is where we meet, And when we get there We all say- S-e-n-i-o-r-s l-S-e-n-i-o-r-s! Yea, Yea, Yea!!! The Ambitious Senior. When ice cream grows on the sycamore tree, And Sahara's sands are muddy, When fish walk around enjoying the breeze, That's when I like to study. fx: Pk ik D Bill: "Do you dance?"

As we turn back years of memory, To the days when we first met, It seems as if it were yesterday,- They're days we cannot forget. , Just four years ago we were Freshmen, The greenest that could be found, Climbing the famous high school ladder, We had to start at the ground. We thought we were "the stuff" as Freshmen, Till we reached the Soph'more Class, Just think, next year we would be Juniors, If we should happen to pass. The next year rolled around as usual. We had reached the third mile-post. We were near the end of the journey, Why, we could see it, almost. Then next year we wereimighty Seniors. Our goal we could almost see' I' T We were just beginning to finish, ' Our school life so gay and free. V Now we have reached the end of the road, And the glorious prize is ours, As we take one farewell, backward look, At those golden days and hours. And with mingled joy and sadness, We are glad that we are through. We hope that a fond memory of us, gl Will forever stay with you. So here we are, each one, as a -class, Through all this struggle and strife, g We've finished one smallimportant part Of. the great' game of life. ' . . , , -Nina Cranford. FEELINGS OF A SENIOR GIRL She roasted on her way to school, She thought she'd faint 'cause she hadn't her Spanish,' She was horrified over a look- Received from Mr. Marvin J. Hall,' But still she must live thru it For there was Latin-regardless of feeling! She melted' during French, S And thought she'd die from When Miss Townsend was informed That she hadn't a sentence. Yet,'she must go on V For there was yet' Math and History! "Fm going to die," wailed that poor fish, "I f something don't happen, for my head issplit ting." , Alas, poor Senior, if you haven't your History For they say Miss Annie's in a dreadful rage. "Cheer up, old gal," say the boys, "do like us- Don't give a darn." ' She was so squelched by Miss Willis, That she felt she could easily Have gone thru the floor To the Eighth Grade .Section II Nevertheless, she sat at her desk And in vain tried to. At last! The buzzer! It was three twenty-nine, Everybody tried to refrain From giving vent to his feelings, But, poor Miss Senior-+there was still An hour for her-with Mr. Sijford. - -Lillian Eudy. CLASS SONGS. S l Tune: "Just a Girl That Men Forget."f We are now leaving the A. H. S. We wish so much that we could stay We know that you are the very best. And will be forever and aye. CHORUS. We're ending the days we can't forget Dear old days that always be 1 To us just a thought of golden hours And deep in our hearts a tender mem'ry We'll always recall ' Thedays of old. And the' things that now we regret And 'now we say good-bye To our dear old Hi And the friends we can't forget. it IAFOUR 1 rr-v ,K-wr , f , ,T ,,,, .,. . Y ,1-, - - , ,-ef Q4 .

The fact that she was chief marshal in her junior year, and Salutatorian this year proves that she is a wide awake, active, dependable Senior. would have been Seniors of '28, if it had not been JUDIE BURLESON. "She does lzer task from day to day And meets whatever comes her way." Judie is a friend worth having. Many Seniors for her coaching the unfortunate pupils who flunked French. MARGIE COOPRR. "Her voice is soft and low An excellent thing in a woman." Margie is one of those quiet Seniors, who says little-but thinks much. Her very quietness seems to bespeak hidden strength and ability. She will un- doubtedly win success in .whatever life work she chooses. NINA CRANFORD. "A pretty girl, a witty girl, 'A girl so full of fun, A' brainy girl, a carefree girl, A thousand girls in one." Nina is a girl who has received more talents than any girl among us. Singing, writing, playing, act- ing and reciting may be counted among her out- standing talents. " JUANITA CRAWLEY. "Life is but a span: ' 'I'll enjoy every inch of it . Juanita does not spend much time in studying, but she is one of those -fortunate people who is able to get by without it. !77 IRENE SNUGGS. "A handful of common sense is worth a bushel of learning." Irene is a very peaceful and harmless girl and you can depend upon her to always be true, both to her classmates and friends. MARY LILLY SNUGGS. "I am as I am and always will be." While this is neither a matrimonial bureau nor a teacher's agency we recommend Mary Lilly most highly as one who meets all obligations placed upon her. lMARGIE F URR. "A cheerful heart, A winning smile, A charm of friendship All the while." We have not heard much from Margie F urrthis year, but always she greets her classmates and friends with a smile. Here's to Margie-may she never forget to smile. .MARY F URR. "G'entlcness is a mark of intelligence." Mary Furr is both quiet and studious. She is loved by her friends for her gentle manner. We are sure that some day she will be rewarded for this. IRVIN BoAz. "Things are bound to happen- W hy hurry?" Everything comes to him who waits- Why hurry? Here's to you Irvin. And may you have a long and happy life, and may all your troubles be 'fLittle Ones." We hope you will make as great a success in future life as you have in your presidency of Section I. THURMAN FURR. "To be heard rather than seen." For the results we are going to leave him to his multiple devices, for one thing we know that he will never follow a beaten track and we are certain that whatever he chooses to do will be interesting. CONNIE LONG. ."N ot all charm is in words." Connie has been a great asset to the Senior Class. Had, it not been for her compact and her I I E1GHTi,l "W " A ' ""'f' v-:spur--f' !-1ff'?"""'. gvewvx .

Virginia has been so quiet and reserved that we I all feel like her jewels lie within her heart. Much can be said of her calmness and willing attitude. I ANN HARRIS. e "The way to have a friend is to be one." C "Six" is the most popular girl in the class, and voted almost unanimously the best all-round girl. She was the successful editor in chief of "The Full I Moon" during '26 and '27. l ANNIE LEFLER.4 "H er ways are true, her conduct blameless, I her friendship lasting." Annie says little in school, but we findher to be a valuable part of our class. Though shels been with us only two years, wt-:Tve enjoyed knowing her. JEWEL LINDSEY.' "A cheerful disposition is a fund of . 4 ready capital." The Seniors are proud of their efficient presi- dent., Her ambitions for life, are unknown to most of us, but there is no question in our minds as to her ability to manage well anything she may un- dertake. ' BESSIE LITAKER. , "Ah, quiet lass, there are but few who know the treasure hid in thee!" Though Bessie is rather cool on the outside, her .friends will verify the statement that underneath it all there is a bed of glowing coals. We' expect to hear much of her if she marries into the great work of the Methodistrministryp r R PAULINE THOMPSON. "A mind to conceive, a heart to resolve, - and a hand toexecutef' - Here. we have a student of unquestioned merit who is at the same time a musician 'of no mean ability. Her dates don't seem to' interfere with her grades, for she comes out in flying colors. PAULINE TROUTMAN. "Never overserious, not too frivolous I but a rare good girl." g Pauline constantly wears an R. S. V. P. smile that proclaims to the world that she enjoys life and would like to have us all enjoy it with her. ARIE MILLER. "The gladness of her gladness, and the V sadness of her sadness Are nothing to the badness of her badness When she's bad." Arie gets along, by the line of least resistence, saying what she thinks and thinking what she says. She has- made a. name for herself in the school as well as in the class. , , 1 KATIIERINE MILTON. ' "She is pretty to walk with Witty to talk with And pleasant-to think on." Are you looking for styles? - If so, you will find a regular fashion. model. in ,Katherine Milton. It would be ,impossible to find a situation in which she would not feel perfectlyat home. MAXINE MoRRIs. "A daughter of the gods, divinely tall, and most divinely fair." Maxine not only likes' to study, but she is fond 'of eatingice cream.. tThe Velvet kind.j ' The for- 'mer is' proved by the fact that she is Valedictorian andthe latter that+--she says'so.' ' ft A if V lx n BESS OSBOPNE. A "Happy is she frornscare she is free , Why can't we all be contented like she?" Bess is our jolliest. ,She also likes to indulge in that habit of continual ilirtation. Perhaps it is because she has the prettiest eyes. I ' ' VIRGINIA CEFIRD. ' ' "Knowledge is thesstepping stone to ideas". Virginia has shown her writing ability as Liter- ary Editor of "T he Full Moon," and her originality in the class prophecyp LILLIAN EUDY. ' "Energy and persistence conquer all things." Lillian is a worthwhile classmate and a valuable friend. She is a girl that can be depended upon to do her part in all things, especially this may be said of her in the editing of the school paper. l CUIiTlS HATLEY. A g g "As merry as the day is long."

FURRJ H ' A It is a cold winter evening. I am sitting by the fire. As I gaze into the fire watching the flames rapidly fly, I seelmy pupils one by one flit before me. They are quick and have the power of a giant. Somehow they are eleventh grade, faces that I see tonight: Bill's flirt of the head when I call on him to recite, Elizabeth's pleasing smile when I am reading something that she enjoys, jim turns off and gazes when I stop in the middle of a sentence because he is whispering to Mary Elizabeth, Thur- man crooks hiselbow and rests his head on his hand when we have an oral English lesson, Aubrey turns to one side and smiles when he reads the mistakes of his essays-4. But that reminds methat eleventh grade essays came' in today. I wonder what they did with that assignment., A V Connie's handwriting is A just like her. The whole essay is clear and neat with straight margins and 'accurate spacing. "The steaming hot supper" she describes is appetizing too, and once more I get to the end of the paper without having to make a single red cross in the margin. Curtis's essay comes next. I can't keep from laughing. My brain begins to pucker itself. I seem to see him writing the paper, picking up words, consulting the dictionary for big words and weigh- ing them in his hand, until .he gets that which he desires. Yet with all the care he has taken, there are many errors-an apostrophe omitted, a period for a question mark, and after all he has used the most extraordinary words. I am almost tempted to dip my pen into the black ink instead of the red. All excited, I grab the stack of papers. jim's paper is on top. AI like its fresh, boyish vigor, and there's not an error in it. Jewel's is next. I like the way it starts. I like the next sentence still better. "Honesty is the best policy." I can see the characters in her story. The rest doesn't exactly measure up, but that one sen- tence makes the essay worthwhile. Then I smile broadly, for there is Irvin's spraw- ling handwriting on the page before me. I always f . I ll, DC be .Ty t 1 like to read his essays. But why should he write about a trip when I asked for something more defi- rite? I go. on reading when suddenly my imagina- tion stops with a jerk as stare at the "well-known Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginian-written in lit- tle letters! There's,a beautiful simile later on that ,causesme to forget and forgive, and again I lay aside a paper that I have fully enjoyed. Margaret, Macon, Katherine, and Brodie seem to have misunderstood the assignment. For Mar- garet writes about the feasting on young monkeys in "the jungles of Africaf' which I don't believe she has ever done. Macongwrites about the modern girl. Katherine writes about the newest method of curling hair. p Brodie writes about Student Govern- ment. Perhaps some day he will be governor over some one besides students. ,Other faces of my ,pupils come and go as the hours wear on, finally the glowing coals fade into ashes, and I go off to bed, hoping that dawn will bring a solution to my problem. A AMASIQUERADE. fLILLIAN EUDYJ In a small North -Carolina town, one drug store, one theatre, and one dance hall were-the onlygplaces of amusement for the younger set. Tonight was a great occasion.

"Yes, my dear, it's only natural. Sue, I think 1' om will really be sorry he didn't ask you when he sees you in that lovely costume. Now, do hurry or you will be dreadfully late," answered Sue's gentle, kind mother. "Oh mother, I do hope we can play this joke successfully. Yes, I'm gone this minute." Sue kissed her mother and ran down the stairs. bk 96 Dk The ball room was a combination of colors, not a dull corner in the place. Clowns dancing with beautiful ladies, a Chinese girl chatting with a Rus- sian peasantg a modern American girl and a pirate flirting, was what a lovely fairy saw as she entered the ball room. Her partner was a Brownie. That fairy! Without a doubt she was the most beautiful girl on the floor, and as the joy-making continued she proved to be the most popular. Tom thought he knew all the girls in his home town, but he was quite positive he had never laid eyes on this girl. As he was pondering whether to begin asking who she was, an accident occurred. The fairy's partner, Mr. Brownie, lost his mask. ' "By jove! Itls Jack Wilson," exclaimed Tom in surprise. "I thought he told me as we played tennis this afternoon that held decided not to attend the dance." I While jack was endeavoring to recover his mask, a dashing pirate swung the light-footed fairy away for a waltz. Tom made his way to Jack's side. "Say, ole man, who's the fairy?" "Here, Tom, do help me fasten this mask." "Sure, But, I say, that's some swell girl you brought to the dance. Won't you introduce me when we unmaskP" "The deuce! That pirate will have entirely es- caped with my fairy before you fasten that mask. Put a little speed in your finger tips! " When the unruly object was suitably adjusted, jack started off without a word, but Tom wasn't to be bluffed like that. Raising his voice slightly he asked, "But you will introduce me, won't you?" No answer. Well, what could be the matter with Jack? He and Tom had been the best of pals last year in high school and here he was not even answering a civil question. Well, anyway, he wanted to meet that fairy! - Only once during the evening did he have a dance with the fair fairy, and then Jack "cut in." When the order to unmask was given, Tom made it happen that he was standing near. Then jack whirled the fairy towards Tom and between spells of laughter said, ffMiss Webster, meet my sophisti- cated collegel friend, Mr.-Tom-Joseph-Web ster!" After more laughing he continued while Tom just stared, HI heard you tell Sue you were go- ing to take Dorothy Phillips, and I knew it wasn't so. You see my brother took her to Charlotte yes- terday, where she is to spend three or four days with a friend. Sue and I decided we'd pull a little joke." At last Tom seemed to understand and then he blushed and stammered out, 'fOh, I get you, at last, Sue. You wanted to teach me you are not such a baby after all. Well, you certainly gave me a start when you unmaskedf' Then he regained all his old spirits as Sue, Jack, and he sped off in jack's road- ster. . CLASS OFFICERS.
