THERON SMITH lass 19:32:11 We stand upon the brink of Life That's filled with longings and with strife, A life that's like an ocea11 wild- Sometimes stormy, sometimes mild. For four long years, with heart and soul, We've worked and toiled to reach our goalg And now the class of twenty-nine Has reached the heights of dreams sublime. Our colors true of rose and white Have ever kept us in the rightg Oh, may our lives be long and painless, As they are now pure and stainless. Rose a11d white, go with us ever, Guard our lives that we may never Go astray from all that's right, May victory crown our rose and white. If, out in life our hopes are shaken, And our hearts are badly achin'3 Oh, may we know that God is near And that We have no cause to fear. When our paths seein strewn with thorns, And everyone around us mourns, The Angel of Eternal Love Is watching o'er us from above. So now, my classmates, have no fear, Because the King of Kings is near Ever to guide us toward the light And help us win in all that's right. We've done our best, and now, my friends, It's up to you to take the ends Of all the threads We have begun And carry on 'til the rope is spun. So au revoir, dear A. H. S., We hate to leave, that we confess. Our time has passed, yours just begun. Take up the torch and carry on! 1 Vmoiiv in Ruomgs Qlllass Jlaisturp 1929 Q lass Clllalenherj Spring is the time for all green growing things, fresh and verdant in their newness of life. ll hat more fitting then, that the Freshman, in this green time of his life, should enter school! fhe Mareh winds and the April showers were very necessary to the budding of the shoots of knowledge 111 tulle l'1'esl1H11111 mind. And we, so green and sweet in our dewy innocence, received at this tnne the first seeds of knowledge and felt the first pull of the plow and the cultivator in this spring ot our career-. 1 September 3, 1925-Rush. Confusion. Lost in new building. New teachers. New classmates. Every' thing new. September 12, -'1925-Straightening out. Fall- Domestic science-the parts of the sewing machine. January-First High School Mid-term Examinatons. Spring-Louise Efird went to VVashington to enter National Spelling Match. Parents' Day--Section II of Freshmen won book for neatest room. Spring-Commencement. Truly in our delightful verclancy, might we then sing with the poet: "Today the spring is in the air And in the blood, sweet sun-gleams come and go Upon the hills, in lanes the wild flowers flow, And tender leaves are bursting eV01'YWllf'l'0-Y For We felt the stir of new life in,all our blood, but we did not realize any more than do Freshmen ol today how very green we were. We mightsum it all up by saying ot ourselves at that time, "Once came sixty and six babies Through our magie gates to pass, Scattering' 'If you please' and 'Maybes'- Weren't they as green as grass?" But the March winds and April showers brought forth an abundance of May flowers, and the Summer- time eame upon us almost before we knew, so delightfully did the one season blend into the other. Xl e found the skies so much bluer and sweeter, and the sun shone more warmly UPON US- We had Stllfll our heads high enough to see nearly as much of it as we imagined we could. We held our heads very llitill and kept the stalks that supported them very straiifllt' They were HOT YN VPVY IYQNVX Wlfll UIPH' accumulation of wisdom and so did not droop with the weight. But our flowers were unfolding little by litt'e. We were slowly but surely coming out into the light of day. September 4, 1926-More confusion. Fllll-CRLQSQII' and Miss Latta. Fall-Sewing, cooking, and etiquette-Miss Pridgen. January-More examinations. , April 14, 1927-Debaters tEleanor Mann, Mary liowder, George Iniffllill went U' Cllillllll Hill- Spring-Operetta, f'Gypsy Rover." March-Sophomore girls served at Junior-Senior Banquet. May-Commencement. It was with us then even as Longfellow writes: "O summer day beside the joyous seas! To some the gravestone of a dead delight, To some the landma1'k of a new domain. Some of us were regretting the "dead delight" of our verdant days, while others looked ahead, longing for the "new domain" where the Juniors ruled so royally. But our buds had become blossoms, and the color of our dominant characteristic had changed with the unfolding of the larger bloom. But verily, in school life, even as in Nature, "Leaves have their time to fall, and flowers to wither," and the autumn of our days came as soon as we were ready. Very brilliant was our foliage that year, very ricl1 our fruitage, as the little buds of the Freshman year, grown into the flower of Sophomore develop- ment, became the richer, more necessary and more satisfying fruit of autumn. And it brought with it the 212111 Thanksgiving of November-thankful that we knew so much, thankful we were no longer Freshmen or Sophomores, thankful we would soon be Seniors and that we had been able to achieve so much. September 5, 1927-Flightiness. , Fall-Home Economics Dinners. Fall-First Geometry lesson. Fall-First French lesson QUT:-es bien, inert-i"J. Ma1'cl1 30, 1928-Junior-Senior Banquet. Spring-Operetta-''In Old Louisiana." May-Commencement. It was indeed a time of dreams and visions and air-castles. But it was not all glory and womlm- and splendor. There were tests, cultivations, and the fall planting, and with all our wisdom there was often much to be desired. We no longer blushed red at some unexpected question. We had passed through the stage of both verdancy and crimson confession, and new color spoke the ml? of Ou,- zulvancemcnt: Juniors oft in doubtful wonder, Pnzzling what they ought to know, Seowled like clouds of blackest thunder, Felt as blue as indigo! , But even this stage passed into eternityg the fruit was all gathered and stored awav within our memories, and with the snows of all the past in hoary wisdom upon our heads, we weleoinedi the approach of winter. The flowers have long since decayed, as we outgrew them, and the seeds of the new life-to-be were stored away beneath the soil of our understanding ready, at the call of the coming Spl-ine to put forth their new shoots and push forth into the new world. Rugged in our young manhood aiil Womanhood, clad in spotless snow and frost protecting the immature germs of developing life from the blighting atmosphere, We stand at the end of our course. ' September 6, 1928-Dignity. Fall-Succession of Solid Geometry teachers. November-Influenza epidemic-school closed for one week. Jallllflfy 24, 1929-Senior play, "Daddy Long Legs." Sprlllg-Class Meetings Q75 01- 1005. Allrll 26-Junior-Senior Reception CMarvelous in its Japanese Settingj. May 26-Baccalaureate Sermon. May 28-Class Day Exercises.

A A i L A i ' W 4 'I 1 in But we must nelyer forget .that tomorrow we will enter into a renewal of life in a glad, bright, glorious new springtime, ieslnnen in Lifes school,-as green and fresh again as we put forth our new shoots as ever we seemed in Albermarle High School, last will anh Eestament MAY 29, 1929. STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA COUNTY or STANLY We, the class of 1929, Albemarle High School, being robust, boisterous, healthy, and "seine," sound and of disposing mind and memoryg realizing our human frailties, the nearness of the "Harricane," and the uncertainty of college careers, fully aware of the huge volume of sand that is trickling, pouring, flowing, and gushing incessantly and unrelentingly through the hour-glass of time, full sensitive that upon its last grain is riding the inevitable pall of night to shroud our High School days, knowing that when the cold bony finger of death beckons us into the great beyond, our earthly belongings are but hindrances to the swiftness of our flightg and also knowing the propensity of men for such luggage we generously and unstintedly relieve the situation and do make and declare this our last will and testament: We ask that our funeral services be so arranged and marked with simplicity that they will actually be notorious, and that the expenses be fleeced and extracted from any available school funds.

Hawkins to execute this our last will and testament according to the true intent thereof. Hereby, revoking and making null and void all other wills and testaments heretofore made by usp in testimony whereof we, the class of 1929, have, to this our last will and testament, subscribed our names on the day and date herein above mentioned. , CS1nedJ THE CLASS OF 1929, Y Autographs
