JEFFERSON, Jr. A Friend of the School and an Honored Citizen AIvIELIA SCHOOL HISTORY (Note: Tile follov in history of the Amelia schools was written by Mrs H. E Jackson, and appeared in the Amelia County Gazette April 16, 1937.) As we think of Amelia’s two hundredth anniversary, we like to think over her school history. Private schools v ere in existence most of this period and the public schools of the village of Amelia go back only a comparatively few years of this two hundred period The first public school of the village was held in the old hotel an taught by E Benjamin Tuttle He began his work about 1871 . He was a most excellent teacher and possessed vast information. He taught all subjects, offering a good course in Latin, Algebra and Geometry About 1881 the first public school building in Amelia was erected, located in v iiat is nov knov n as Prank Lynn’s dwelling. This was a frame building of one room, costing about $650.00. Mr Tuttle taught in this building until liie spring of 1884. Rev. l Ir. Darnell, a presbyterian minister, was the first county superintendent of schools. His salary was about $300.00 per year. Hodij Meade was the next superintendent, serving about ten years In the fall of 1884, Rev. S. 0. Southall became Principal. A lady taught the primary department in her own home During this period Mr. Tucker was superintendent The next teacher was Mr William Meade, who was the only teacher for two years Richard A Irving, an excellent teacher, was his success or At that time, Rev. J. L. T. Holland, a Christian minister, v as Sup er int enden t About 1890, ’’Bob’ Mason became teacher It was not long before it became necessary to build a second room, Mrs. Sallie Wootton was appointed to help . Mason and the two v orked together for many years. Many of the most prominent Amelia people can tell of the days spent in Mr. Mason’s school Mr Jeffries followed and then T.¥. White became Principal, Because of the size of tiie school now, two teachers were employed, in addition to Mr, White One of the teachers used any available rented room dowm town for her vjork. When Mr, Plank became Principal the crowded conditions v ere worse. In the session of 1909-10, Superintendent C.W. Bowry told Mr. Plank that he must put in some high school subjects The people saw a need for a larger building. Even though the children realized the need, too, they were sorry to give up the ’’Pink College”, the name given to the first building because of the color after a white coat of paint ’.vas put over a red coa t In 1910 David Hindle and Dr. P.S. Southall, members of the School Board, became much interested in erecting a high school, 7ith the help of the citizens of Amelia this became possible, and that Pali the doors of the brick building were opened. The cost of the building was $10,000 The enrollment that year was seventy Prof J. D. Harris, now Principal of Bellevue school in Richmona , was the first Principal. The other members of the faculty that first year were Miss Mary Byrd Taylor, Miss Jane Irving, Mrs Sallie Wootton, Miss Courtney Taylor. The patrons worked courage ously d ur ing that year. The patrons had a most active league of seventy fi ve members. They put up the woven wire fence about the grounds and made many fancy impr ov ement s» The dedicatory exercises of the Amelia High School were held on iVIarch 24, 1911 » Amohg those tailing part on the program were Governor W.H. Mann, Hon, J, D Eggleston, and 0. L« Shev make , the State School Examiner, The year 1915 was a great one in this history. It saw an enrollment of 177, The faculty consisted of eight members and the senior class had as its members Edna Hindle, John Hindle and Clinton Wa-rriner. Thes‘ were the first graduates of the high school. That year also saw the first annual fittingly called " The Alpha " , come from the press. The commencement of 1915 v as a notable event. One of the Principal speakers at this occasion v as Hon, R.E.Byrd, On the last night of commencement Dr, P.S, Southall expressed in behalf of the people of Amelia his regrets at having Mr, Harris resign as Principal, Dur ing the three years Hr, Harris had organized and graded the school, improved the grounds,, organized senior and Junior leagues and put in a manual training shop. His point was good strong discipline, W.W. Barnhart was Principal for the session 1915-14 He kept up the work that had been started, encouraged athletics, debating and more school spirit in the community. Through his influence the school was made an accredited high school. This was made possible by each patron paying a tuition, thus enabling the school to run nine months. Then came a time v hen the school principals remained only a short time, Robert Terrell was Principal for the session 1914-15, He was followed by Mr. Long for 1915-16, Then G.C, Outland was Principal for two years. During this period the school was ms.king progress, for in 1917 there were 231 on roll and the graduates numbered ten. It was at the commencement of 1917 that Principal G,G, Outland estimated that the cost of educational training each session per scholar was an average ol $20, The present Superintendent, W. R, Wriggle swor th , delivered the diplomas at this commencement this being his first seesion as Divisioi Superintendent, since he succeeded C, B, Bowry, who died in 1916, Tilliam Willis became Principal in 1918 and served for two years. He was followed by Rev. S T,Habel, who was Principal one year. Mr, Habel increased the number of volumes in the library, and kept the school on the accredited list. Miss Ida Trosvig, now a member of the William and Mary faculty, was Principal for Miree years, following Mr. Habel, Miss Trosvig re-graded the school and recognized discipline as of primaiy importance. Her debating teams won honors. The faculty still numbered eight, but every available space was being used to seat the children and the teachers were heavily loaded. The auditorium v as arranged for classrooms. All plays and commencQ:nent exercises were held down town in the hall. Again the citizens of Amelia saw a need for more room. School truckf were bringing children from many parts of the county and there must be a place to accommodate them, J, G. Jefferson, Jr,, then chairman of the school board,, worked diligently in securing a new building. In 1925 private subscriptions amounting to $7,500 were secured. More money v as borrov ed and v hen school opened that fall under Miss Alice Roane the nev building was well under v q.y. In January of 1926 the high school department moved across the street leaving the first building to the grades. There were eleven members of the faculty then and the enrollment was 330, The new building was quite modern. The auditorium, seating 500, v as a delight to the friends and patrols of the school. There were six classrooms. The aost of this building was about 2.5,000. The session of 1926-27 brought C. 7» Miller, now Principal of Crozet High School, to Amelia He found many duties awaiting him in furnishing the new building. An active league bought a piano, stage curtains, windov shades and other needed improvement s. It yje.s during this year that the second annual was published by the students, this one being called “The Amelian’ . Mr. Miller emphasized health and physical education The first pla.yground equipment was built during his principal ship. After five years of service, I ' ' r. Miller was followed ' by Roy HeliTis , the present Principal. The faculty now consists of 17 members. There are nine busses bringing children from all pa,rts of tlie county. The total enrollment for the present year in both the grade and high school department is 590. The senior class has 26 members. Mr. Helms has encouraged the children to take more interest in dramatics and debating. Many improvements have been added to the play- ground equipment. Many volumes have also been added to the library. Being Cbairman of the Publicity Committee from this district, Mr. Helms has kept the schools before the eyes of the public in this part of the State, as well as in Amelia, County. The school has an active Parent-Teacher Association under the leadership of Mrs. T. H V ootton. Attendance at the meetings often runs as high as 20 per cent of the entire enrollment of the school. At the beginning of the session of 1933-34, the School Board, v ith J. u. Dickerson as chairman, secured Mrs. Beatrix C. Hav ks as Elementar. Supervisor. Mrs. Hawks is an alumna of Amelia High School and is the first supervisor the county has had. Amelia High School ha.s sent many sons and daughters into the v orld and she is justly proud of them. Thirty-three of her sons were enrolled for service during tl:ie World War and many of her daughters volunteered and were active in the Red Cross. Her e,lumni are fillirg almost every position in life. She can claim miany professional and business men besides numerous teachers and homemiakers as her children. Dedication exercises for the present grammar grade school building on March 24, 1911. Governor Mann is speaking. Pay special attention to the style of hats and dresses of twenty- eight yea s ago. A view of the front of the building during the dedication day. Amelia ' s little " Pink College, " which was the school build- ing used before the erection of the present grammar grade structure. This building is now located on Petersburg Avenue and is used as a residence by Mr. Frank Lynn. The present high school building erected in 1935, which now houses 285 high school pupils. More room is already needed for this growing school. i VERAGE AiTlTUAL SAXi iRIEE Oj? HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS ■ COI.G’ARED WITH OUR IIEIGHBOR COUITTISS.

G. DICKERSON B. C. GARRETT S. E. TOWNSEND W. R. WIGGLESWORTH SUPERINTENDENT KATHERINE GREEN SECRETARY m PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATIOII Bessie IJelms Hill Teacher Upon a basic foundation of high personal courage I should vii h the Eler.ientary School to build these things in ny son: Fi rs t ; Straight thinking. He must face facts as they are, nust not warp nor contort then to his own advantage. Teach him to pursue a course of blinking to the most logical conclusion possible to him. Teach him that it is cowardly to abandon a thread of reasoning beco.use it runs afoul of his preconceived convictions cowardly to e ’’ade or omit the truth that threatens his own ends Second ! Open his eyes to beauty. Lead him to ’’see’ a well turned thought a beautiful painting; to feel exquisite harmonies - the glorie of nature. Teach that it is not weak to be moved by these things. Leave him his pov er to thrill - encourage him to prize spiritual ’VE.lues Third : He must respect the abilities consider the rights of others. ( The world seems alarmingly short of stock in these two cor.imodi tie s ) . My son must not be taught that he is inevitably superior nor irrevocabl inferior. Teach him that there are no superiorities save of merit, service, achievement. Make him know that great strength - true strength is ever gentle in its expression; that to it v ea.kness is a challenge for protection not an invitation to trample. I v ould have him know that there is no inferiority so despicable as that which grinds down the defenseless. Fourth : I want my son informed. Make accessible to him all that history offers of man’s strivings and the outcome of these efforts that he may have some guides toward formulating his own lines of action. Teach him to find out things for himself, not to be content to be told; not to accept unquestioningly the reactions - opinions • of any one. Direct him to where information may be found - develop in him a desire for appreciation of sources. When he has found his na terials help him develop the power of evaluating its v or thwhilene ss, of eliminating that which is useless to his purpose, of using effectively tiiat which he needs. Fif th; Guide but do not coerce him in his search to discover that task which will make him happiest in the executing. When he has found this thing which he likes best to do set him in the way of learning to do it well Let him not become that unhappy soul - an artisan bereft of his art Caution him lest in the pursuit of his own ends he thwart the aims of another. Happiness is too dearly bought that takes as its toll the sacrifice of a brother. The fulfillment of himself - his destiny in a good thing, an enriching experience only when it permits to all others the right it claims for itself To the elementary school I send this son of mine while he is young, fresh, plastic. Let it start him on the v;ays of thinking, feeling, learning, doing, and I shall feel that it has accomplished gloriously its mission of helping my son live to his fullest the life which nature through me Has given him. THREE DEEIHITIOHS EOR THOUGHT Governor Charles B Aycoch, of Horth Carolina: " Education is getting out of boys and girls what is in then " The first words spoken by Governor Ayco ck when he stood before iiis Legislature for the first tine was, " Gentlenen, while I an Governor it will be treason to do anything against education " T H. Briggs: " The first duty of the school is to teach pupils to do better the desirable things they are likely to do anyway, and to reveal higher activities and to nake these both desired and to an extent possible " Correll: " Education is the developnent of personality. " Dr Rollo G. Reynolds says tliat education becones a sinple thing and sinners dov n to this: The developnent of four powers - 1. The power to knov things To know the truth, and to knov what is really worth while. 2 The power to do things Doing things is the natural way of life. The boys and girls need to know how to do a hard task and get the pleasure out of knov ing that it has been well done This is one of the greatest satisfactions in life - the conpletion of a difficult task. 3. The power to think things Character is the iiabit of doing the right thing Eorce can keep a ciiild fron being bad, but being good nus t be his own idea He should be able to think things tiirough A good citizen is like a good jurymn capable of taking end weighing the evidence and arriving at a justifiable and sane conclusion. One generation of boys and girls who think for theriselves and this v ould be a different world 4 The power to feel things. Peeling is personal, it is the real YOU Ho generation v ill get anywhere unless v e feel right Tolerance is a feeling, fair pla.y is a feeling, love a,nd dependability are feelings. Which would you rather have, a child who is fair at play, or a crooked lawyer; a person who has. love in his yeart for others or a high-office politician It is more important for us to educate the emotions than give them knowledge of Chemistry and Latin. THE COIITEST OE PUBLIC CPI!JIOH ABOUT THE SCHOOLS V hat are the schools trying to do? Sooe people think the schools do not teach the things v orth nost Some say the schools must he classical and traditional Others just as strongly assert that education must he practical to prepare to live in the present v orld. How do children learn? Some think learning should he hy easy steps, and are accused hy others of wanting to " sugar coat " education Others insist that everything worthwhile is hard to do. Some say the schools are too difficult for children, v hile others say there is too much shallow work - not enough effort hy pupils. Some v ant drill upon facts and skills, hut others want children to do more things that have meaning at the time. The public really believes that " Practice makes perfect, " hut does not knoy( what practice, nor how much, nor when. Teachers are accused of being theoretical, or easy, or hard-headed, or hard-boiled, A lot of mothers believe in their hearts that they know more of the learning process than the teachers. Perhaps they do J Yet, nc clear opinion is abroad as to how children really should learn. Should the schools change? Some people are worried about the rapid changes in what is taught, how it is taught, and modern trends that are working out in the schools. Others are just as certain that the schools are not in step m th the times, that the lag between what we know and what we do is too great. The contrast between the attitude of wanting my-child-taught-as-I-was-taught and that of demanding the- latest-and-the-bes t is enough to put all school people on the spot. Are the schools democratic? We quite often hear people say the schools are not truly for all Gie children but just for those who are bright or whose families have some influence. Just as often v e hear others say that the public schools are so full of dull children lacking family background that all the products of the schools are bound to be mediocre. Are the schools too expensive? Some people believe the schools cost too much. They say we ha,ve gone in for too many fads and frills that should be paid for privately. Teachers are looked upon with questioning by many people. Yet the parent of any pp.rticular child wants that child’s teacher to be educated, cultured, of fine personality, well-mannered and well-behaved, a sort of model. Things at school are not too expensive for one’s own children. The emphasis upon the schools as free has probably been misplaced, THE INCREASED COST OE ELUCATIOH IS THE GOST OE IIICREASED EDUGATIOlh ■ yhat of the relations between teachers and parents? In the matter of school reports there is much lack of understanding on the part of parents, llany want the marks of success in children to satisfy their ovm pride. Report cards do not become a joint means of study for teachers and parents v ho should be really partners in human engineering. Parents who cannot control their own children expect the school to take care of all problems on some basis of reforming, ignoring, forgiving, or punishing. Should the schools be really free? The tendency is toward abolishirjg all fees, to provide mterials of learning, including publicly-owned textbooks, but iiany people are unho.ppy about it. It is but one step nore to serve a free i-ieal in the middle of the day and to provide acceptable clothing for those who need or v ill accept it. The schools are not so far removed from being relief agencies. Viiat reforns are needed? Any citizen in the coni.iunity can point out tilings which need improvement in the schools. Sometimes a -whole group of teachers are liismissed and a new start is made. Some demand older teachers, or married teachers, or home teachers. Others are sure younger, fresher, better-educated teachers from a distance are better. Long term as against a short term is debated. New curriculum versus old curriculum is an issue. The public is pretty sure something ought to be done - it doesn’t know v hat. CONCLUSION ; The schools must be related to all other social undertakings. Too often there is the tendency to assign work to the schools that belongs to other agencies. The schools ca,n not substitute for the home or church. They can neither solve the trade problems of training all youth for a world of work nor organize that work so as to carry on. Nor can they carry the total load of education that must go on continuously in the lives of ambitious and enterprising people of adult age. The schools cannot do everything . School education is not a panacea. Paul Hounchell, in ”The Virgihia Teacher ' , Ma ' - 1938. HOW TO IIAKE A TEACHER Select a young and pleasing personality; trim off all manner!

STEELE MISS CROWE MR. HURD PRINCIPAI MR. LINDSEY MISS MARTIN MISS SPINDLE GLASS HISTORY The discovery oi the class of 19S9 was an accident Roux ytars ago, early on the morning of the 1st of October, 1925, the faculty of Amelia High School were strolling aimlessly ttiroigh the halls Suddenly they caught a glimpse of something new and strange. Just inside the front door, huddled together in mute embarrassment and anxiety, were the members of what became the class of 19o9 ' lo tne casual eye they seemed merely a group of ordinary boys and girls, well dressed, reasonably good-looking and badly frightened. But to the trained eyes of these experienced explorers, these trangers seemed di stinct individuals, each possessing talents, deficiencies, and capaoilities decidedly worth finding out Gently attempting to dispel the fears of the strangers, tne faculty bade than enter, and succeeded in gaining their confidence and friendship. Each of the discoverers became an e lorer. The grangers were given the name ‘•Freshmen’ , divided into small groups, and assigned to tlie care of different explorers. They were taught many new customs and manners, and required to learn difficult lessons The most unpleasant thing about this Freshman year was the contempt in which they v;ere held by those who had been residing in the school f or a longer period than they. Some of the Freshmen showed signs of unusual ability in various fields. Ann deKrafft won the tennis championship; Richard SydHP played baseball; and William Wright played basket ball At the end of the year, a terrible disaster befell the Freshmen. Although it was intended to prove of lastir benefit to them, they suffered greatly Many had their growth retarded a year by it, and u few, permanently disabled, left the Freshman class forever. This disaster was called Final Examinations and proved to be one of the worst massacres of the time. It is easy to understand v;hy the joys of the exempt knew no bounds. With the coming of the next September, the Freshmen were rename t Sophomores. The talents discovered the previous year werp rapidly developing, and the exploring teachers found much to please them, but also much to astonish them. Instead of the intellectual gold mines tha.t they had hoped to see, they found vast, arid spaces, totally uninhabited. The class organization of the Sophomores v as as follov s: President, Martha Selecman; Vice-President, Richard Sydnor ; and Secretar: Treasurer, Jane Beasley Amy Farley was a member of the cast of the winning contest play Jane Beasley was District Secretary of the Students Cooperative Association. Ann deKrafft, Webster Morris, and Stewart Deekens played on the basket ball teams Charles Holman, Webster Morris, Stewart Deekens, Richard Sydnor and William Wright played baseball. One of the most welcome incidents of this year v as the receiving of the news that there would he no exam inations And there have been none since. In the third year, owing to an old educational custom, the Sophomores became Juniors. This year they were organized under the leadership of Mary Hamner, with Richard Sydnor as Vice-President, Jane Beasley as Secretary, and Audrey Wright as Treasurer. This was a year of hard work and a great many of the class engaged in extra-curricular activities. A girls Hi-Y Club was organized and Kathleen Jones, Mary Hamner, Amy Parley and Mary Willson were cliarter members. The debate teams were victorious at Richmond and went on to Charlottesville. Elsie Wills, Amy Parley, and Mary Willson were members of these teams. The contest play, which v on the cup again this year, had an all Junior cast made up of Elsie Wills, Mary Hamner and Richard Sydnor. Three of the members of this class were among the representatives sent to the State S.C.A. Convention in Roanoke. A Library Club was organized and Ola Ruth Arrington, Virginia Maxey, Ethel Major, Mary Hamner, Amy Parley and Mary Willson v ere members. An important event of this year was the entertaining of the Seniors at the annual Junior-Senior Banquet. At the State Hi-Y Convention, Amy Parley was elected Secretary for the next year. She has the distinction of being the first girl ever to become a State officer. Ann deKrafft and Audrey Wright were on the basket ball team, and a number of the boys were on the baseball team. And now they come to the fourth and greatest year in the history of the class. They automatically became Seniors in September, aiid with the gaining of this title, they began to take them.selves more seriously than ever. And when I say ’’seriously " , I mean, " seriouslyl”. As the year drew to a close there v ere some v ho were positively dizzy v ith dignity, and a few others who could never be dignified. The organization of the Senior class was noteworthy, the .follow- ing list of officers being in charge: President, Richard Sydnor; Vice- President, Stewart Deekens; and Secretary-Treasurer, Emma Mason Warrinei Elijah Davenport v as Edi tor-in-Chief of the Annual and Audrey Wright was Assistant Editor. Martha Selecman, Jane Beasley, and Charles Holman were Business Managers, and Ola Ruth Arrington and Wayne Collins were Peature Editors They had an all-senior girls basket ball team as well as a number of Senior substitutes. Those playing basket ball v ere Virginia Shank, Madge Lav son, Audrey Wright, Elva Lav son, Ann deKrafft, Amy Parley, Mary Hamner, Margaret Mitchell, Jane Beasley, ard. Martha Selecman. Richard , Sydnor , Stewart Deekens, Charles Holman, Webster Morris, and William Wright played on the boys basket ball team. Representatives from this class were again sent to the State S.C.A. Convention, this year held in Williamsburg. Amy Parley was elected President of the District " D " Students League. It has been four years since they stood, embarrassed and afraid, just inside the front door, huddled together to meet a nev adventure They have written now on the pages of Amelia High School History, and pass on, perhaps with more confidence than when they came. They go now to take their place in the outside world of complexities. mo ' WHO_1 1T HE__SEH R GLASS 1 Best looking; Katherine White Charles Holman 2 Most popular; Mary Willson Richard Sydnor 3, Cutest; Virginia Shank Elijah Davenport 4 Most studious; Ola Ruth Arrington Corbin Easter 5 Neatest; l Iargaret Anderson Ralph Hastings 6 Best sport; Audrey Wright Stewart Deekens 7 Most bashful; Alice Morris Corbin Easter 8.

GLASS PROPHE.CY One beautiful eveniiig in the spring of ' 59, Miss Spindle and Miss Ward, the Senior class sponsors, took us walking to the Porest of the Puture This forest has a reputation for giving prophecies to people in the querest ways . Everything was lovely; the trees and shrubs casting shadows on the green grass below, fLovi ers of every color peeking out of the ground and beautiful water lilies springing from the tranquil waters of the lake The breezes singing through the hills caused us to pause and listen Walking on further into the forest we saw a large tree from which huge nuts had fallen Being quite hungry we decided to eat some. Upon opening them we found our future engraved, printed or v ritten before us Mary Willson was the first to read her prophecy It read, • ' Happily married to a wealthy Romeo, the idol of your creams. ” Por RalpL. Hastings, we saw • ' Attorney at Law, Washington D.C.” Martha Selocman was to be a Home Economics Teacher We could hardly imagine her doing that for a life ' s work. Amy Parley was to be v liat we had so often expected, a prima donna next only to Grace Moore. Virginia Shank was mu ch pleased to find she was to be a very famous technician in a hospital in Pennsylvania Emna Mason Y arriner, our very good natured friend, was to own a sugar plantation in Hawaii Betty Jackson, quite bashful in high school, saw engraved for her, ’’Leader of Virginia Women ' s Socialist Party.” Cosby Perrin saw his future in the far West as a Porest Ranger. Mce goirg , Cosby Virginia Beaver and Wilna Snow v ere to study voice together in Hev York, with a very bright future before them. We weren ' t surprised when Ruby Thore read, ’’Happily married to your present fiance, with a home in Riclimond . Katherine V hit e , one of the best looking girls in school, was seen modeling in Hew York v ith a big chance for Hollywood. Prom Lorraine IIqIo-o we heard her read, ’’Another trip to Washington State; this time not at all anxious to return to Virginia We v ondered why. II Audrey Wright, our very energetic guard on the haslcet ball team, v as tamed down to the quiet role of a nurse at Stuart Circle ► Between blondes and basket ball, Dick Sydnor was having trouble finding time to bluff his way through Duke University Mary Hamner, a wonderful musician, found she v as to teach music in a public school in Los Angeles Edith Poindexter was to own and operate a beauty parlor in Richmond. Thelmia Wingo, our most timid class member, found that she was to be a music teaciier in the steadily growing town of Jetersville We read for Preston Lov ry, " Auto wreck between Ohio and Nevada, v;here you will be saved by a tall handsome man whom you will choose as a life companion " For Charles Holman we read, " Owner of Holman’s Garage, Amelia, Virginia. Ruth Smith was quite pleased at her prophecy of being an interior decorator with an office in Boston Helen Shrum was t o be honored as America’s most noted Photographer We were quite amused, but James Allen was greatly pleased, upon finding he was to teach a class of girls in the art of correct speech. We were startled by Elsie Wills ' giggling She was to be a stenographer fo r a Virginia Congressman, with comedy acting as a side- line. For Madge Lawson was prophesied, " President of Amelia Athletic Association with a girls’ basket ball team to coach as a pastime. " Elva Lawson sav her future in an office in Boston, as secretary to a Maryland Representative with Mary Munford as a co-worker. Edith Crone was quite delighted at finding she v as to be head nurse at Johnst on-Willis . The U S. Government, realizing the value of Corbin Easter and William King in engineering, was to assign them a very responsible Job Ercelle Jones’ future kept her at Miller and Rhoads as a s ten og rap her » Ethel Major was to be part owner of a Broadway shov . Irene Morris, one of our quiet seniors, was to be private Secretary. For William Wright v e read, ’’Efficient operator of a large motor line ” 01 Co Ruth Arrington found she was to he the buyer of clothes in the Junior Department of an exclusive dress shop in Rev York. Virginia Barnard ms to be head librarian in the Congressional Library in Washington, vhth Mildred Jenkins as an assistant. For Lucy Mae Long v e read, ’’French Teacher at the University of Virginia » Iris Haden and Margaret Mitchell were to put the patient teachings of Miss Martin into good use as home economists For Wayne Collins we sa? , ’’Editor of Popular Mecha,nics.” Maiy Ruth Vernon read that le would be a governess for a v ell- to-do family dov n South. For Jane Beasley v e read, ’’Happily married to a Hollywood Movie Director ” Stev art Deekens told us he v as to be employed as a civil engineer on a large Federal project in Mexico. Margaret and Elvira Yeatts found prophesied for them an exciting, life in the mid-west as a dance team Webster and Robert Morris read to us, ’’Owners of Morris Textile Company, incorporated, with Virginia Maxey as your most efficient Secretary.” Edith Little ms to live a life of leisure because of a large fortune left her. Kathleen Jones read that she would be America’s number 1 sweetheart Dorothy Ellingson was very delighted to find she ms to write popular mus ic. Elijah Davenport was to lead a life of happy 1 easure on his dad’s farm Decie Francis was to be one of the best beautifian experts in our state For Edith Chumney and Lucille Price was prophesied, ’’llurses in the Red Cross service.” Emma Mae West found that she would be a short hand teacher in one of the leading business colleges. Jessie Warriner informed us she v ould be a typist for a while She wouldn t read the rest, but she seemed quite happy Kerman Reams found his dream of being proprietor of a department store will come true Eor Alice Morris we read, Baptist Missionary to China,” Margaret Anderson read to us wi th a great deoM of excitement that her future days would be spent writing scenarios. Marie Eane s’ photographic hands were to be in constant use showing the latest fingernail polish. All of us having received our prophecy, we turned homeward. It was S3.d to think that with the exception of graduation exercises this was to be the last time the entire class wuld be together However, we v ere glad to have some idea of our future and began singing our school song as v e turned from the forest to find our my home.

The Senior Class (by Emma Mason YYarriner) liiE Cl SS OP 195 9 In the fall uf 1955 we, the i-ieLiberE uf this year’s graduating class, enterfed Anel ia High School Thus began fuur years of happiness and interesting study v hich we do so regretfully leave today -- our CO o oe n G nt day Yq have done our best while in high school to develop our talents and to train ourselves for participation in the great denocracy under which v e live; and je feel tba g we are now prepared to do our part toward supporting this democracy and toward helping our coniLiunity and our nation to achieve still greater freedom Democracy is a Greek 7ord m ea .n ing popular rule, or, as Lincoln expressed it, government of the people, by the people, and for the people ’ In order to have a true democracy we must have citizens whose minds are trained to grapple with civic and national problems; cit izens whose characters ar e so trained as to enable them to stand for the right, regardless of the personal cost; citizens who can be good leaders or g oud follov ers, as the Gccasion demands; and citizens who are filled with an unselfish spirit of service for hom.e , community, state, and nation People of outstanding character are needed toda-y in our country, and we are sure that Amelia High School has at lea,st given us an opportunity to develop outstanding traits of character This has been, accomplished through the cl ass room work , through athletics, and through extra-curricular activities Because of these many chances offered to us, we seniors hope that we have set a standard that the underclas sr.ien will be proud to carry on for Amelia High SeBool Amelia High School guarantees equality of opportunity for students to grov in character,, persone-1 pov er and good citizenship. O r nation needs leaders YYq need them far more than a monarchy or an aristocracy It is a, safe hazard to say that v e need more leaders of a better kind than any preceding historic form of society, because the n eed for leadership in various fields is greater than ever before Never in conscious thought has a, uemocratic people given up an assent to the doctrine that it dees not require able leaders Amelia Hi School, besides being an educational institution, has been a selective and distributive device of a society which constantly aims to guarantee happiness to us individuals by training men for the right responsibility and place in the outside t ' arld Many outstanding leaders in various fields have been found and trained in crixr schoor High School education has not only tauglit us ttie principles of leadership, but i t ha s also taught us t ' - strive for bet ter conditions in our own daily life, govern :..en t , and industry Before one can a true leader, he i.ius t also be a good follower Y illingness to cooperate ano. do well one’s part, however suall, is often as inportant as leadership itself, because it is often left to tbe rank and file of the people to LiaJ.e wise decisions for the advaric er.ient of our nation. It is no assumption that one nan or a group of Lien is to lead in all things at all Thus every deniocratic citizen’s life is ci. chain of nor.ents, in soiie of which he leads and in some of vjh ic h he foil ow s . Service to one’s friends and coinrunity is also an important factor in our democracy. The teaching of worthy use of leisure time has prepared us for service. Institutions such as the home, the church, and industry cannot function independently -yvithcut education. The political world is suffering for trained minds backed by character and a spirit of service that are incorruptible. In the new leisure that shorter v orking hours and a more equoJ distribution of labor are already bringing, training for participation in worthwhile activities is invaluable. Through the outstanding orogran offered at the Amelia High School we seniors, tlirough rental training and through character development, have been prepared so that we cr n assist inn.aking the World of tomorrow a happier and more comfortable pic-. ce in which to live and in which to make a living. Vvill the representative of the Junior Glass please come fo rward? In behalf of the senior class of 1939, i t is my privilege to present to you, the representative of the class of 1940, this mantle, syi-.bulizi ng our hopes for tlie future and our loyalty to ii-nelia Hj_gh Sciiool. Hay your clo-ss ever be worthy of the trust it now assumes and help our school in every way to hold up its standards and to achieve the ideals toward v hich we are all striving.
