ottiAiosucal feacJztyuui+tcL (Continued from page 114) As a young man Andrew Lewis was very courageous and energetic in the wilderness, where dangers from Indian attacks and wild animals were constant. 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.

On with the Show- One likes to look into the future and reminisce about the past . . . and for reminiscing we decided to have a reunion of the Class of ’48—-as for looking into the future here is what we saw and heard: Well, everyone was there, simply everyone! 1 ! 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.
