In your 4 omahawk you have recorded class mates, friends, teachers, events, buildings, trees, flowers, and scenes. You have for ALMA MATER been a source of strength and hope. Your faith, integrity, courage, training, social and spiritual insight will be a fortress aiding you in building a fairer civiliza¬ tion. This is your great responsibility and should be a joyous adventure. You have seen the students responsibility widened by: A stu¬ dent council, an active student paper and yearbook, a stronger athletic program with an active monogram club, an expanded music and physical education program, a student assembly, a trip to the nation ' s capitol, a functioning home makers cottage, a teen Age Club, a new lighted athletic field, etc. The class of ' 47 has stood solidly behind these improvements. The A. O. School bids you an affectionate farewell. Your de¬ parture will mean our loss, but a challenge forcing us to prepare others to take their place in this never ending search for knowledge and the abundant life. -—Page Ten Larry Linwood Anderson " Square " Basketball 2.3.4: Literary Society 1: Glee Club 1.2.4; Hub 4: May King 3: Mono¬ gram Club 4.

In the fall of 1 943. 73 scared boys and girls entered Altamahaw-Ossipee High School for the first time. Our first three years were spent getting used to the idea of school. Then we entered the fourth grade where our teachers put us on a steamer bound for the Senior Class. During the past twelve years some of our crew have fallen off and we left them behind, while others joined our merry crew. The years until ’41 were an exciting voyage, we visited many interesting countries, and took part in many interesting activities. In the spring our school held its first May Day. As we were the highest grammar grade class, Theron Gilliam and Betty Vann Simpson were chos:n King and Queen of the festival. The twelve year school plan was started so that meant we had to wait another year to receive our grammar grad: certificates. On graduation night in the spring of 43 forty proud students were presented their grammar grade certificates. We were a modern class, so instead of continuing our journey by steamer, we chose an airplane. We figured this would be more exciting, flying around over the class that still stuck to the idea of traveling by water on a slow steamer. Our first year in High School was very exciting to all. The girls and boys were in separate groups. This wasn ' t very exciting, but what girl or boy was interested in each other at that early age? Miss Frances DuRant, the mus e teacher, interested many of us that Freshman year with her Glee Club. Everyone remembers " Listen To The Lambs,’’ and this and many other songs took us on trips to other schools. The group gave a musical program over W.B.B.B. Burlington, North Carolina in honor of our school. The boys and girls seemed to be interested in sports. The girls gave basketball a try and the boys tried basketball and baseball. Our Freshman year was our first and last year to belong to the Literary Society Program. We admit we were scared stiff, but it did do us some good. Many of the passengers aboard our plane took a liking to newspaper work, and have played an important part in putting out our paper. The school team of ' 44-45 found us with a new principal. Mr. V. Mayo Bundy, and a new group of teachers. Mrs. Marian Corum joined our group as home room teacher, so this meant she was to have the top ranking seat on the plane. Theron Gilliam was elected President for our class of 3 6 Silly Sophomores. The other leaders chosen were: Vice President. Boyd Somers: Secretary, Frances Beckom: Treasurer. Betty Vann Simpson. This was a very busy year for all and much hard and successful work came out of it. The basketball boys and girls, the baseball players, coaches, and those connected completed a full year w th a party at Gant’s Cabin. Three of the boys, who were to enter the service of Uncle Sam, were honored during the party. The class helped raise money for improvements on the ball field and received a half-holiday for raising the same amount as our rivals, the Seniors, did. Among other activities was a Christmas Party in the school cafeteria, given by the class for the departing Seniors. We enjoyrd a weincr roast on Easter Monday at Lydia Iseley’s. Then came May and our festival. The May Court Attendants were chosen, with Betty Jean Troxler, a very attractive member of our class, receiving the Maid of Honor position. Peggy Morton and Frances Beckom represented our class as Sopho¬ more Attendants. Yes, the next year we started our trip to other new horizons as Jolly Juniors, 3 6 strong and Mrs. Corum again took over the leader ' s position. Paul Michael received top honors, as the President of our class. Other officers were: Vice President. Theron Gilliam: Secretary, Peggy Morton; Treasurer, Dink Gwynn. Theron Gil¬ liam was elected associate editor of the school paper, " The Hub. " Eleven other members of the class took part in the work of publishing the paper. Five members of the class were elected to the " Tomahawk " staff. Dixie McIntyre was chosen Junior Editor to help publish the first annual for our school. Larry Anderson was elected King for the annual May Day Program. The class had charge of modern dances during the program with Vir¬ ginia Somers and Rebecca Southard as Junior attendants. Page Sixteen The Junior class received the honor of being the first group to take a Spanish course in the history of the school. In November we presented a comedy " Dotty and Daffy " in the school auditorium The Curtis Maga zine campaign was started about this time and we took over. We exceeded the amount that a school usually sells as a whole, reaching the $600.00 mark. A playground for the smaller children was needed, so a campaign to raise money was started. The Juniors finished with the most money collected and received a half-holiday for their work. The Home Economics Girls fixed a supper for the overseers of Ossipee Mill and their wives or girl friends. The money made was used to help furnish the new Home Economics cottage. For a Christmas treat, Mrs. Corum entertained the class with a party at her home in Greensboro. Every one enjoyed it wholeheartedly including her Mother, Father, and Sister, who were also guests. The Class at Easter was entertained with a hayride and weiner roast by our grade parents, Mrs. Boyd Simpson and Mr. Wilbur Gwynn. As was evidenced we had a wonderful time. A very happy part of the year was after the Christmas Holidays. We returned to school and received our long and anxiously awaited for class rings. As a gift, the class presented Mrs. Corum a matching bracelet. The boys and girls took part in basketball, baseball, and softball which proved to be a very successful year. The boys ' class team won the basketball tournament. The Glee Club which made such spendid progress that year received interest from many of our class members. As this active year drew to an end we the class held our Junior Party in the Home Economics Cottage. Now. we are Seniors, the war has ended and we can get us a new and faster plane. That old one has just about done its part in completing our journey. Let ' s take a B-29 while making our last flight in Altamahaw- Ossipee High School. Mrs. Corum is once again our leader, and one who the class can thank for sticking with us through our ups and downs of the last three years. Theron Gilliam is the pilot of our plane and Ned Ross Co-pilot. Their helpers are Peggy Morton and Boyd Somers. All the other members of the class have taken their places in the plane ready at all times to help those four out in any way possible. Theron Gilliam received the honor of editing our school paper. Many others of our group are working on the paper and annual. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill played host to the Seniors of High Schools in North Caro¬ lina. Our group attended this Senior day program and saw the Carolina-VPI football game. Boyd Somers, a very reliable member of our class was elected by the student body as President of the Student Council. The class had charge of the Curtis Magazine Campaign reaching the $500.00 mark this year. Again this Christmas the class held its party in Greensboro at Mrs. Corum ' s home. Everyone really enjoyed the party. As our trip draws to an end, we have traveled many miles even though our school is very small and there ' s not much land to cover. A Senior Play " His Name Was Aunt Nellie " will be presented in March, Washington. D. C. in early spring and a Jr.-Senior Banquet will end our days of hard work and happy times. Get this straight—we really have enjoyed our days spent at our dear old Alta -Ossipee High School. To all our friends and teachers we owe much, for the time they have spent getting us ready to start a new and faster trip, which will probably be made on foot since time changes so quickly. We are leaving, no not really leaving, because our hearts will always be here no matter where we might roam.

Testors TIME CHANGES THINGS This twenty-sixth day of May. nineteen hundred andforty-seven in Alamance County. Editor Boyd Somers, of the Ossipee Dispatch recently brought from his scrapbook of unusual clippings this article about the reunion of the class of ' 47. Though yellow with age. and a few words missing here and there, we read the following account with interest. In the ballroom of the Ellis Laundry, Suffolk, Va.. a class reunion took place on D cember 20. 1962 Mr. and Mrs. Woody Ellis, joint host and hostess, we;e in charge of the program. Honored guests were the members of the class of ' 47, and though scattered far and wide, all put forth special effort to attend this meeting. The Honorable Theron Gilliam. Senator from N. C., delivered the welcome toast. Admiral Paul Michaei hastily prepared the response, as he knew nothing of his part of the program until his arrival. Habitually everyone began talking about old times, and Rev. Wayne Kernodle could hardly get silence long enough to have a short devotional period. He and his wife, the former Betty Van Simpson, journeyed from Ohio for the occasion. Comedian Fred Barber took the floor, and presented his impersonation of the late Bob Hope. Hollywoou was represented by the newest ‘ Betty Grable” find, Ruth Neighbors, and the new crooner for the Bobby-Soxers —Mr. Larry Anderson. Special gifts for the hostess, former teacher of the class in Altamahaw-Ossipee School were presented by Dean Barker, who has assumed duties as principal of a Burlington City School. Some gifts were a gown from Macey’s in New York designed by Miss Geneva Foster, a year ' s beauty course at the Way ' s Beauty Salon in Suffolk, owned and operated by Mrs. Clyde Way. Jr. the former Peggy Morton; a life size portrait in oil by artist Jack McCray: a record player, radio combination donated by Joseph Simpson, manager of Simpson’s music shop accompanied by two albums of Columbia records by popular Singer Lydia Iseley, who has received wide acclaim like the late Kate Smith. During the program, the hostess visited the nursery to see that Etta Strader, professional baby sitter, had the twins—Windy Dale and Linda Gale, well under control. Between the course of events, Mary Satterfield, professional health specialist, fainted and Dr. Ned Ross ad ministered first aid, assisted by his private nurse. Margie Madren. Sudden commotion was aroused when Aviator David Bell zoomed over the building in his privately owned passenger plane and made a tardy appearance with the hostess of the plane, Edith Kernodle. Featured on the program was the swing music of Dink Gwynn s orchestra, successors to the late Guy Lom¬ bardo. with vocals by Larry Anderson and Lydia Iseley. Secretary Catherine Simpson kept a record of the evening ' s events, but it was written in shorthand and had to be translated. Guests who traveled long distances spent the night with Misses Nancy Rudd and Hazel Dunevant. joint owners of local boarding house. Miss Frances Beckom. saleslady from California. Miss Rebecca Southard Basket ball coach for Woman ' s College. N. C., Mr. and Mrs. Elmo Jones, (the former Virginia Somers of Ossipee) and Miss Louise Mansfield—house-wife-to-be (?) were among the overnight guests. Only member of th? class not present was Miss Dixie McIntyre, who has been in solitary confinement in a spinister ' s home for twelve years and refuses to see anyone except male visitors—of which she has none. Party decorations were by Miss Betty Jean Troxicr—interior decorator from New York. News reporter for the occasion was Nellie Mae Madren of the Ossipee Dispatch.

MONOGRAM CLUB Realizing the increasing need for a better spirit among students and athletes of the Alta.- Ossipee School, fifteen interested athletes, led by V. M. Bundy, set about to organize a Mono¬ gram Club. We think that the members of this organization represent the best in the A.-O. School. The first requirement is to win a varsity letter, but this doesn ' t necessarily mean membership in the club. An athlete must believe in the school, clean sportsmanship, the team, the victory and elgibility regulations. A Constitution was drawn up, code for A.-O. athletes, adopted and Lydia Iseley was elected president. Four new members have been admitted and initiated since the club was chartered.
