BECAUSE For three years you have worked so unselfishly and so untiringly as sponsor of the Pioneer. BECAUSE We realize that you have given your best in the class¬ room. BECAUSE We appreciate your help— We, the staff of ’48, reserve this place in our book, just as we will always reserve a place in our hearts for you, Hie |ii 011 c p r Mrs. Mary M. Vaughan Pn,ala fue Behind, the curtain’s mystic fold the glowing future lies unrolled—Bret IIarte. For five years we, the class of forty-eight, have enjoyed the opportunity and privilege of attending Andrew Lewis High School. As we move on to the last scene of our performance, we begin to realize that the great day of graduation, for which we have so long been striving, is almost here. Let us reminisce over our high school years. Suddenly it dawns on us that this act of life is only one portion of the drama that is to be unfolded as the years roll on. It will be in our hands to determine some of the events in the play; others will be decided for us by our Creator. We are only the actors, yet we are the ones who can make or break the production. All parts are portrayed on this stage of life, and we must decide for ourselves whether we shall wear the masque of optimism or of pessimism. We shall find that each act has its moments of enjoyment, its moments of laughter, and those of sorrow. When the entire play is completed, we shall ask no more than that it shall have been of some value to each of us. Believing that the graduates would like a review of their years at Andrew Lewis, and that the underclassmen would like a ‘‘preview” of what is to come, we present for your enjoyment the Pioneer of 1948. The Staff of ’48 forty-eight Qua biAedtoA Sfieahi To Each Reader of the Pioneer: It is a privilege to have this opportunity of expressing to the faculty and to the student body my sincere appreciation of the courtesies and good fellowship shown me during the first year of my second principalship at Andrew Lewis High School. Especially do I ext end greetings and good wishes to each member of the Class of 1948. t The Pioneer records in picture and in story the worthy activities and highlights of achievement that have filled your days at Andrew Lewis. In the years to come may this record not only recall for you the friendships of youth and the happiness of school days, but may it also keep alive in you a steady devotion to your High School and the ideals for which it stands.

After four years of waiting for the moment, we are able to walk before our audience, not with stage fright but with a proud feeling—a feeling that only a Senior could understand. The scene changes from our Senior Ha41 and we find the Seniors enjoying a special privilege—Senior Day. There are no young actors anywhere—just Seniors. In the distance we hear a group singing for the Operetta, scheduled for May. Seated on the ground we see a group of students discussing the Senior Play. Until this year we didn’t realize how much the Staff of Directors had helped us in developing our attitudes and ideals during this great act. We’ll always remember their efforts and devotion. At Commencement, as the curtain closes on this scene, on our lips will be the words, “Andy Lou, we will always love you.” tlic pioneer Top Row—Across Barbara Alene Adams S. C. A., 4, 5.

Out of 240 of our members, 25 have been installed in the Beta Club. No longer are we in the galleries, but are recognized as part of the real audience and take our place in the main auditorium. We know that our training here at Andrew Lewis will help us a great deal in the future, with the aid of our teachers and more experienced actors. We will obtain not only knowledge from books, but will receive a deeper understanding of the true value of life. tli e pioneer Richard Agee Lynnwood Angle Barbara Ames Norma Assaid Phil Atkinson Joann Austin Buddy Baker Doris Beahm Bruce Bohon Almeta Bohon Gerald Boone Norma Jean Boone Catherine Booth George Bowling Helen Bowman Eleanor Brillhart Jean Brogan Joanne Campbell Betty Jean Carper Charles Carper Janet Carter Sheridan Carter Janie Cawley Winston Chelf Bobby Cofer M innie Collins Wilma Collins Paul Copenhaver John Cross Kenneth Crowe Joan Crawford Mary Crawford Martha Jane Curry William Davenport Annie Davis Vona Lee Deel Delois DeHart J.

In the Sports Club, Future Homemakers of America, Library Club, Band, Latin Club and other clubs, we are also well represented. So, you see, we are really beginning to shine!

In the fall, we were awed and bewildered by the vastness of the school. By the end of the first semester, we seemed to have acquired all the traits of real Andrew Lewis students. We are looking forward with great anticipation to the next four scenes when we, the Eighth Graders of ’48, will advance step by step toward the footlights of the stage, where our audience will behold us as the Seniors of 1952.

It has amended the old Constitution and outlined a program of projects for the student body to work on. Some of these plans are: To encourage cleanliness in the whole school, to promote honesty, to work with the faculty in solving the problems of the students, and to arouse a more courteous attitude throughout the school. The Student Council “sponsored” an assembly to present to the school what this form of student government is trying to do and how it functions. This is the first year that the Student Council has sent representatives to the district and state meeting of the S.C.A. We, the members of the Student Council, would like to express our deep appreciation to the “Directors” who have worked so faithfully with us and have given us such valuable guidance. the pioneer IIETA CL 11II OFFICERS Jean Beamer.

Sponsors To give all Andrew Lewis Y-Teens a feeling of unity upon which the Y-Teens’ organization is founded, the first activity held was the Installation Service. This took place in the First Methodist Church of Salem, with the Reverend H. Wark Curry officiating. In December we ‘‘took part” in the decorating of our school halls for the an¬ nual “Hanging of the Greens” ceremony. The program consisted of Christmas thoughts and carols. Another exciting activity was the introduction of the “Y-Who.” In keeping with the spirit of Christmas, each member drew the name of another to whom she sent small gifts as often as possible during the week. The purpose of this was to better acquaint our members with other Y-Teens. Our club sponsored one of the Open House dances at the Y. V. C. A. in Decem¬ ber. The “highlights” of the year were a Leap Year Dance and, a month later, the football-basketball banquet at Longwood. This has been a very successful year for the Y-Teens because of the untiring efforts and the able leadership of Aliss Jones and Mrs. Rice, our sponsors.

In our lives today research of all kinds is vital if we are to play our parts well on the “stage of life.” Hence, the Library Club seeks to foster the love of good books, a joy in reading, appreciation and care of books, and a realization of the value of the library. With this goal as an objective, the Club again sponsored the annual Book Week Contest. During the year the club members enjoyed a Christmas social and a spring picnic as well. Life, with its humor, comedy, pathos and tragedy, has been staged through the centuries.

The Club also furnished “sound effects” for several of the dances. The new members taken in last spring have shown much interest in the Club and are always eager to help and to learn. The Projection Club has sponsored the Southeastern Assembly programs, which have been enjoyed by all.

Assistant Coach Preston Graves. . .Assistant Coach {Volunteer ) When the season opened on September i, eighty boys reported co practice. Eight lettermen returned from last year’s team. The boys spent the first two weeks scrimmaging and polishing up for the opening game against Bedford on September 13. This game, which Andrew Lewis won 20-7, gave needed experience to some of the amateur players. Our first test of the season was against powerful Thomas Jefferson of Richmond. The Presidents were out to avenge their 6-0 defeat at the hands of the Wolverines last year. Many of our students accompanied the players to Richmond to witness a thriller—ending in a 13-13 tie. The following week we lost to the strong team of Vinton—7-0. Our next game was played in a sea of mud against Lane High in Charlottesville. We scored on our first play and won the game 6-0. Then came ihe important game against our “featured” rival Jefferson. Roanoke had one of its best teams in years, and her power proved too much for the JVolverines. After a hard-fought game, Jefferson defeated us 22-0. Afterwards came successive defeats at the hands of Hampton, 26-0, Lynchburg, 19-0. Things looked bad for us for the Danville game. The team played one of its best games, however, tying the Cardinals, 0-0. The following week William Flem¬ ing scored on a long pass during the final four minutes to defeat Andrew Lewis 7-0. Even though we had few victories, the Andrew Lewis school spirit was really in the “limelight” and every “player” displayed fine sportsmanship in the games.

You can bet your newest football or Andrew Lewis colors that some of these boys will be “totin ” the pigskin for the Blue and White next year. forty-eight Play by play . . . Hesmer, getting the ball from center, picks up his interference and goes around left end. Mayberry, No. 82, is starting to throw what is a beautiful block. Huff¬ man and McNutt following close behind him get blocks farther down the field, while Hesmer carries the pigskin for a first down. No. 15 almost makes the tackle, but is out-run by Skeeter. Skeeter’s going around that right end behind perfect blocking given by the whole right side of the line. Vance Can- naday, No. 27, throws a nice block on the end and Hesmer picks up about eight yards just short of a first down. Even Robertson, the center gets in on this one. It’s Maberry this time taking that ole ball toward that goal line and he really does go with it. He spins out of the arms of No. 71 and Hinchee, who is running down field through a nice block, aids Maberry to go a few yards farther. “Skeet” carries the mail around right end and this time he doesn’t seem to have any blockers to help him. He gives the man lying on the ground a smashing stiff arm and out-runs two of the three men, but the third one gets him, after he has gained about 18 yards, accounting for another first down. the pioneer FOOTBALL Hollandsworth, taking the ball on a hand-off, dashes wide around end, giving two Fleming players a mean look and a stiff arm for a gain in the second quarter. Incidentally, “Holly” out-runs the two Fleming boys and is forced outside a few seconds later by several more players. Here is the ole off-tackle play that is always good for a gain when we need it. Shelor and Mitchell are opening a hole in the right side of the line for Skeeter to come through, but he is trapped by the line backer. St. John and Wilbourne are making an attempt to help him, but are too late. This is one of the ole favorite plays where “Pinky,” the left end, gets a short pass over center. The pass is good and it is a good catch, but they are waiting on him. He fails to make a first down but it is a good gain. Huffman, left guard, rushes up to “Pinkey’s” aid. Shelor lying on the ground after throw¬ ing a block to protect the passer. Here is the result of a pass thrown by Keith to Hesmer. This gives “Skeet” quite a gain until he is pulled down from behind by two Fleming players. As Hesmer speeds down the field he is charged by the safety man, who is met with a smashing stiff arm. forty-eight [ 85 ] FOOTBALL Buddy Baker Vance Cannaday Marvin Crowe Bill Ervin (Center) (Back) (End) (Back) Leo Ferris Boyd Harrison Skeeter Hesmer Lloyd Hinchee (End) (Guard) (Back) (Guard) Melvin Hollandsworth Brent Huffman Donald Keith Glenn Lewis (Back) (Guard) (Back) (Center) the pioneer FOOTBALL Clarence Maberry {Back) Jimmy McNutt {Back) David Mitchell {Tackle) Jimmy Robertson {Center) Wayne Shelor {End.)

Our team went to the DuPont tournament in Waynesboro for the first time. We got off to a good start by defeating our “featured” rival, Jefferson, before bowing to Lynchburg. The team defeated Danville here, but in Danville, the Wol¬ verines lost. We lost in Lynchburg, but won a victory over Glass High here in the best game of the year. The Andrew Lewis team was defeated twice by both Jefferson’s and William Fleming’s championship clubs, but in turn A. L. won over William Byrd twice. The team was hurt by the “exits” of regulars, Clarence Maberry and Vance Cannaday at midterm. These places were ably filled by the reserves. Jimmy Robertson led the scoring of the season, but was closely followed by Skeeter Hesmer. The schedule and scores: A. L. Opp. A. L.

They have led our cheers through victory and defeat. Let’s give “15” for our Cheerleaders! f 1 Every year we take “time out” for girls’ sports. We started the year by serving a grand ping-pong tournament. Anyone watching one of these tournaments knows the excitement of the close games. The champion ping-pong player of ’47 and ’48 is Keturah Pillow with Frankie Bishop as runner-up. Although fieldball and soccer had no place in after-school events, they were “Box Office” attractions in the gym classes. Basketball was the next attraction and many girls “appeared” on the scene. In any¬ one’s language, basketball is a grand sport. This year we had a team from each of the grades, each group competing for top honors. Close on the heels of basketball, followed volleyball, badminton, peteca, and shuffle- board. Spectators entering the gym the first few minutes of a class would find the girls playing anyone of the above-named sports, and interest was high concerning all four of these sports. Peteca, a Brizilian game, is new in this school. Originating in Brazil it was brought to America by a Brazilian newspaperman. Peteca carried top honors in after school events, as well as in the gym classes. Badminton followed peteca in top interest. “Don’t step on the birdie,” is a familiar cry when some are playing the sport. Shuffleboard, a favorite, not only in school, but also outside, is on t he list of top honor sports. Remember how hard you tried to get the disk in the paying section only to have it knocked off again? Before we know it spring is here and young girls’ fancies lightly turn to thoughts of—tennis and softball—naturally. Many have gathered at the tennis courts since the beginning of the tournament. The tournament is still in progress and it is anyone’s guess as to who will come out on top. We end our year with softball, one of our most popular sports. We are looking forward to finding out which softball team will be the best. We feel that much of the success of the girls’ sports season is due to the enthusiasm and inspira¬ tion of our “coach,” Phyllis W. Terry. Phyllis W.

But before we have turned around, or much more than that, the first bell tolls its note of alarm. There’s a mad rush (that’s the lower classmen getting back to their homerooms). By this time even the Juniors are thinning out—but the Seniors remain sedately but determinedly in their favorite haunts and wait for the second bell before they even start their long weary trudge to homeroom roll call. After a short nap in homeroom period, the race begins again and we’re off to first period—what a thought! homework unfinished and tired as a dead duck.

There’s a gentle rap on the door followed by “Does anyone want to buy a paper?” All is quiet again and time passes and our minds wander right along with it, until we are rudely awakened by Mi ss Annie’s “Wake up, sonny, come to the party!” First period finally draws to a doleful close and off we tear again to finish those conversations started in the dim, gray light of dawn. Another bell and we stumble wearily into second period, be it Macbeth, the binomial theorem, or hie, haec, hoc. We are finally released and a soft trampling sound is heard as we file orderly out of the rooms. Soon we are confronted with the realization that it is third period and time for another class in English under Mr. Snapp. English is only a formal name for this class which deals with anything and everything from current hair styles to the death of Jezebel. Then, “Missy, what is your conception of the ideal man?” from Mr. Snapp. This period is one of the highlights of the day. Now Physics class or lunch period comes around.

Of course, we hate to interrupt that famous and eternal discussion of Communism, but “Mrs. Smith, may I go to the Library?” is inevitable. Another hour runs swiftly by between Life and Mademoiselle. Time taken up with “hearing” and reading (?) is educational, so they say. Now the day is almost over, but the longest of the fifty-minute periods in the day still remains. The sixth period bell sends all scurrying and we end the day with Mrs. Strickler entertaining the class with a poem read over her glasses. And at long last a seemingly endless day finds us running for our buses with an armful of books (which will be carried back to school tomorrow none the worse for the wear).

He’s a one-o- six-er. After roll call and excuses are settled and we have our devotionals, then the hub-bub starts. Each person must turn around and tell the next fellow his latest escapade, all about last night’s date, or maybe his newest corny joke. And then what do we hear but a soft voice quietly pleading with us, “Ladies and Gentlemen, remember you’re Seniors”—and then we sink down in our seats, sorry for our sins, and get to work.

He wins without boasting, he loses without excuses, and he never quits. He respects officials and accepts their decisions without question. He never forgets that he represents his school. The Coach: He inspires in his boys a love for the game and the desire to win. He teaches them that it is better to lose fairly than to win unfairly. He leads players and spectators to respect officials by setting them a good example. He is the type of man he wants his boys to be. The Official: He knows the rules. He is fair and firm in all decisions. He calls them as he sees them. He treats players and coaches courteously and demands the same treatment for himself. He knows the game is for the boys, and lets them have the spotlight. The Spectator: He never boos a player or official. He appreciates a good play, no matter who makes it. He knows that the school gets the blame or the praise for his conduct. He recognizes the need for more sportsmen and fewer “sports.” ■—Kentucky High School Athletic Association FLY For Business For Pleasure HOGAN TIRE CO.

Place: Andrew Lewis High School. Setting: Corner College Avenue, 4th Street—Salem, Va. Past: The present school of A. L. was built in 1933 for the cost of $275,000. The total number of students “taking part” in 1933 was 887 with 164 graduates. The number of mem¬ bers on the “Staff of Directors” was 26. In 1936 an additional wing was constructed on the back of the building. Andrew Lewis was built with a modern gymnasium, cafeteria, industrial arts shop, laboratory, and one of the finest auditoriums in the State. Present: In September, 1947, the total enrollment was 1,375. The faculty members numbered 55 for 1947-48. One hundred and ninety-three “Stars” made their “exit” in 1948. ANDREW LEWIS, THE PIONEER Andrew Lewis, one of the greatest Indian fighters of Western Virginia, is acclaimed as the greatest military leader in the history of Roanoke County. He was born in Donegal, Province of Ulster, Ireland, in 1720, the son of Margaret Lynn and John Lewis. (Turn to page iij) “THE STORE OF SERVICE” SMEAD WEBBER Phone 50 214 E.

The indescribable hardships, were known to this pioneer. Andrew Lewis was 6 feet and 4 inches tall, blonde, with heavy dark eyebrows. He was stern in appearance, kindly and genial in manner. In 1748, he married Elizabeth Gevens. They had five sons and one daughter. Andrew Lewis served in Braddock’s army during the French and Indian War. On June 9, 1755, Braddock was defeated at Fort Duquesne, and Andrew Lewis was captured by the French. After defeat many Indian attacks were made on the settlers in the valley of Virginia. Due to these fierce attacks Colonel Andrew Lewis commanded the “Sandy Expedition” to suppress the Shawnees. He performed his greatest service to his country when as a commissioner from Virginia he met eight others in conference with 3,000 Indians in New York, which opened the western lands for settle¬ ment. He must have been an impressive figure for the Governor of New York remarked “The earth seemed to tremble beneath him as he walked.” In 1774, Colonel Andrew Lewis with his army of 1,000 men marched across the Ohio to join Dun- more in a great movement against the Indians. The great battle ending this expedition was the defeat of Cornstalk, the great Shawnee chieftain, at Point Pleasant. This victory of the frontiersmen was not only complete, but it was one of the decisive contests of America, for it gave the central west to civili¬ zation. It was because of this victory that Andrew Lewis merited the title, “Hero of Point Pleasant.” In 1781, after four years of fighting in the Revolutionary War, General Lewis resigned his command in the army because of a fever contacted in the low country. On September 20, 1781, Andrew Lewis died. Andrew Lewis High School was certainly named in honor of a great pioneer, and Andrew Lewis pupils should always strive to live up to his name.

The first person we saw was MILDRED GARNETT an up and coming radio singer. Listen in some time, she’s on station Ruff every Tuesday night. Another of our old classmates added a lot to the day with her new vocation. That was STRANNA LESLIE who went around all day snappin’ pictures to help us remember this famous class. There came RICHARD HURT just home from Annapolis, and did he look slick! Ever heard of those two up and coming cartoonists, JOE HUBBARD and GORDAN GUNTER? Sure you have! They draw the strip, “Big Chief Pain in the Face.” Oh, there was so much to see and hear. A couple of the girls had just been on a cruise. These traveled young ladies were none other than our own BARBARA ADAMS and ARBUTUS AGEE. We missed a couple of our old members though. JOHN SHANK had gone to Argentina as the U. S. ambassador and PEGGY SMITH had sailed on the same boat to serve as financier for a large shipping company. ANNETTA LOMAN was in Oregon as a Director of Religious Education in one of the churches. LILLIAN MOSES was on her way to Brazil as a missionary, too. RITA FRIEND, now national director of Girl Scouts, had gone to Switzerland to a conference and couldn’t be present. They were all in our minds and we hope they will succeed, as all A. L. students always do. Now let’s see who else was there, in body as well as in spirit. The next face we remember seeing was that of HOMER SHOW ALTER. He was still trying to figure out the words to “I’m My Own Grandpaw.” (Think we could easily understand his dilemma.) This could have been considered a farewell party for DAVID SISLER as he left the next week to “see the world.” RALPH PLUNKETT went with David on the world tour.

Sltcuu {Continued, from page up) A couple of teachers were in our midst but for once we didn’t have to mind our P’s and Q’s for they were our own JUNE FRAZIER, Home Ec teacher at old A. L., lucky girl, IMOGENE HARRIS, one of the promising French teachers of the day, and ORA MAY MILLER, a very charming English teacher. DORIS CROTTS is now the French teacher at our Alma Mater. Not even French would be hard with a teacher like that! JIMMY COMER and GEORGE BOWMAN still stick together, just like in the good old days— they have bought out “Consolidated Glue.” JUANITA BLTTT left for Hollywood the next week for a screen test for the new picture, “Now Is the Minute.” MARY LOU CROSSWHITE, a big adver¬ tising manager in New York, is now sponsoring the Broadway play, “No Ado About Something,” starring JOAN JOHNSTON. ALVIN STUMP, that good-natured senior of ’48, is now “Life” on the program, “Life Can Be Beautiful.” ORVILLE SIGMON owns a home on a hill with a very special HILL. VERNON BESS has taken over the local drug store and is well liked by all his customers as an ambitious young pharmacist. MELVIN BOWLING is now with Pu Dont as a chemical engineer. JAMES HARRIS is also a chemical engineer. Some of the old classmates that we didn’t have much time to talk to were EDSEL CONNER (still crazy about hunting), JAMES WELCHER (quite a famous dancer for GMG studios now), CHARLOTTE DRISCOLL (we heard she graduated from Averettand then settled down to a very happy, little, rose-covered cottage), JACK MOWBRAY (he’s in aviation), and MARGARET ANN BOONE (she had her book, “Lassie Go Back,” published). RACHEL McCORMICK is private secretary to Tord and Laylor in New York. THEODORA SAVA, whose genial personality won so many friends for her in the past has now won for her a spot on the Ramble Soup program as M. C.

Sitting off to themselves (we had to intrude) were BETTY LUCAS and BOBBY CHADWICK discussing the big time they had in Florida last summer. They’ll tell you there’s no place like it, however, if we took a vote Andrew Lewis would probably win ten to one. FRANKIE BISHOP has just graduated from a Roanoke hospital and she tells us that WILLIAM is in Germany now as a civil engineer helping with the reconstruction work. And good old CLARENCE was there laying them in the road in the usual MABERRY manner. JUDY BROWN told us that she was doing Social Work now and who could be better with a personality like hers? There were a couple of get-rich-quickers in the Class of ’48 and so they all struck out to Alaska. NELVIN HOBACK made a cool million in oil, while EUGENE WEST started the first Photomobile in Alaska and is doing quite well so we hear; JACK WILLETT never got over his interest in girls and finally settled down to a nice little millionaire heiress of his own, while HAROLD WRIGHT is now managing Stoneyfellow’s Willow Run plant and is the top salary man in the nation. Guess what JEAN THOMAS greeted us with? That’s right, that old, “You’re cute, kid, but who likes kids?” Same old JEAN but she’s quite a successful journalist. BETTY JEAN SISK is also a journalist on the staff of “Ugh.” EVELYN GILLESPIE came around to talk in her usual happy manner. She’s on the Woof Dog Food program as the star vocalist. CONNIE STEVENS has be¬ come quite a successful interior decorator. Of course we were delighted to hear about all of her ex¬ periences and all she would say after that was, “Oh, Pooh!” A couple of our cronies got a band together and made quite a name for themselves. LYNN DEYERLE plays drums, and JLDY HOLLADAY sings. You probably know them by GENE DRA¬ PER and His Hot Capers. One of our little ladies actually got to Carnegie Corridor. That was MAE McCRAY, a prominent concert pianist. ELLA MAE DRAPER and EVIE CHAPMAN teamed up and are now appearing with the New York Philharmonious. JAMES KINZIE and JACQUE HITE will appear in a concert in Washington to open the social season there. {Turn to page 126) [ 119 ] Q+t with the Sluuu (Continued from page iiq) LEON BOONE owns a big cattle ranch in the west and is what you might call a “country gentle¬ man.” FRED GREGG is in Detroit now working as a Diesel engineer. SAMMIE BLOUNT went north also as a radio engineer. Then we heard that LEE HARTMAN was quite an up and coming engineer in the Philippines. DAVID CARR got on the coaching staff at Luke University. MELVIN HARMON and LOU ANNA ETTER are bookkeepers for one of the big firms in Roanoke. Then there were those wonderful girls “with a smile in their voices”—SUE POFF, one of the stars on the ’48 basketball team; RUTH CLARK, remember how sweet and gentle she was?—She hasn’t changed a bit; FAYE LAVINDER, her smile wasn’t confined to her voice, and LORENE SIMP¬ SON, just as cute as ever, and we guessed from her glowing countenance that her position was only temporary. There were a couple of lab technicians in our midst who were quite excited over their work— BETTY VIAR, just as ambitious and full of life as you ever saw her; HELEN AMES, looking quite starchy in her white uniform, and GWYN ANDREWS, very interested in an intern at Duke and he in her. We heard that JEAN STANFORD is a very prominent psychiatrist. There were a couple of interns themselves in our little gathering, MARY LOLI MUSSER and CHARLIE DORSEY being the young cut-ups. MARY VIRGINIA GASKINS is now head nurse at the Lewis- Gale. We were quite proud of EDITH HAYDEN and her basketball ability on the nurses’ team when Jefferson Hospital played the Roanoke Hospital. JEANNINE ASSAID is nursing now, but we hear that her correspondence in France is pretty heavy. Three little girls in white that we didn’t get to see much were JANE SCOTT, JEAN HARTMAN, and JEAN BROWN. AUDREY NICHOLS wasn’t able to come to our little meet as she is now in Korea as a missionary nurse. We wouldn’t want to bore you with all this medical talk but just have to tell you what a prominent dentist MELVIN HOLLANDSWORTH is. Then in walked CAROLYN CHARLTON—she’s a nurse now, too.

L. gym. The WIRT boys, JACK and JAMES, “took to the air”—they’re pilots at Woodrum Field. BOBBY JEFFREYS and BILL HUGHES are now on the photography staff of “Whiff,” a big perfume advertising periodical. JOHN RECTOR stayed in Salem to become a prominent businessman, but he delights the Lions’ Minstrel audiences each year in his role of “Tiny.” EDNA TLIRNER joined the Wacs after graduation and entertained us all with the tales of some far off places she’s been. Good-natured BILL POAGE now runs the group of chain stores, “Tick or Tack.” GEORGE ST. JOHN is a professional boxer, appearing in Madi¬ son Round Gardens this spring. BOBBY and BILL THORNHILL replaced Abbot and Costello in the movies; their latest production being “Discord of Harmony.” NANCY SANDIDGE, FRANCES SMITH, ELMA JEAN JARVIS, and SYLVIA GRUBB went to Washington and are working for the government on the Potent Energy Commission. CHESTER MILLS, whose friendly nature we so well remember, is writing a book entitled “How to Win Friends Who Aren’t People.” JANE JAMISON is now a very able librarian at old Andrew Lewis. REGINA HURT, one of the attractive Seniors of ’48, is personnel manager at Smartwear Serving Saks. DUCK KEITH is now manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, the team of the year. TICK JONES, JAMES LEIGHTON, JOHN MILLER, and GLENN PERFATER are some of the leading poli¬ ticians of the state. ARNOLD OVERSTREET and LLOYD ROWE were having quite a discussion on whether our old classmate JOE LOGAN should be sent to the Far East as personal representative for the President. BUCK PLUNKETT said that he thought JOE could handle the job. BRENT HUFFMAN is quite a successful criminal lawyer in Boston. ROBERT STACY has been promoted to a chief petty officer in the Navy. EDWARD SCRUGGS is now Postmaster General in the Presi¬ dent’s cabinet. VANCE CANNADAY is a very successful businessman. (Turn to page 124 .)

HARLEY FERRIS and JUNIUS DAVIS are au¬ thorities, on the subject, as they are the county agents of Wimpole and Size Counties. The boy with a ready smile, MAC GRISSO, was brightening the day. CLALIDINE GARMAN and VIRGINIA BELLE GARST are doing very nicely in the designing field. ANDREW CHAPMAN is still as hand¬ some as ever. He entertained us with a song, while all the girls swooned. JACK CRAWFORD is also a well-known crooner, and trains dogs on the side. BUDDY BUTTS had just returned from a fishing trip. GLENN SMITH, JAMES HICKS, LLOYD HINCHEE, and CHARLES JONES could top any fishing story Buddy could tell. Among those present were several collegiates: BETTY OWEN ADAMSON, she’s all fixed up with an English boy, we see; GARTH NELSON, he won that maroon Buick convertible on the “Slick” soap contest and does he like it; JOYCE “B 1 NED” PRICE, whose eyes reflect that someone very special; EMILY SCOTT, she has a wonderful job teaching the little ones; then BARBARA NORRIS, we never could drag her out of the swimming pool long enough to find out much about her doings. We won’t forget BOBBIE CALDWELL, the cute little blond in blue still talking about the fun she had at the Teen Can, or JIMMY ROBERTSON, a happy-go-lucky boy, and a well-known athlete, or MIDGE WOODS, still just as cute, happy, and carefree as ever. BILLY CECIL, he’s headed for the top in Chemistry, and JEAN BEAMER, his able lab assistant, were at the reunion.

Horace Before the curtain closes on this act we wish to have an opportunity to thank the staff of directors, our sponsors, the publishers, and others who have made our production possible. Though the curtain has fallen and our play is ended, indeed for us it is only the beginning. For in the next few years each of us will see dreams realized, desires fulfilled, questions answered. Our play was built on a true plot of everyday life. We hope you have received as much pleasure in viewing it as we have had in presenting it. It is our hope that when in future years you glance through these pages, your heart will be warmed with golden memories. The curtain rises again—behind it we view a new act—a future that is yet to be touched.
