' oQ ' 7 ' i y ) . - f y- -y The Guide ' s Award To an outstanding guide, who has shown us, the climbers, the safe and right path, who has helped us avoid the pitfalls of care¬ lessness and overcome the obstacles of indecision, whose interest has refreshed us with hope and encouragement, whose personal example has been an inspiration for us to climb to greater heights, we, the Staff of ‘55, devotedly and gratefully dedicate this, the 1955 Pioneer, to Mr. Carroll F. Alexander. V Briefing Our climb referred to in this book has been filled with wonderful opportunities, sharing ideas in the classroom, trying to solve perplexing problems, meeting friends of fiction in the library, using talents in the assembly and club program, having fun at hops, dances, and picnics, experiencing thrills at basket¬ ball games, football games, and track events, glowing with pride when one of us won in a contest, appreciating old friends and making new ones. This is our story brought by the Pioneer Staff of ’55, which we hope will live and be ever new to students and friends of Andrew Lewis. fable Of Contents Guides. Climbers. Body Builders.

In them we see our Father’s hand, and also a reminder of the fact that if we would attain those ambitions and dreams which all of us have, we must work at least as hard to reach them as we would to reach the top of one of the peaks. In the past year we have made progress toward a realization of our dreams. Some have made great progress; others little. In either case, we have not worked alone. Our friends and guides have made the path far less arduous by their help and guidance in our work and by making possible the good times that have relaxed us along the way and given us new ideas and renewed vigor. With the confidence which springs from such associations, we face the future, the rising sun, with the hope that those who have achieved much will be more successful and those who have achieved little will keep climbing un¬ daunted with happiness in their hearts. GUIDES pCoJ-4 A XK - st r q sriAsC- - aA - E. B. Broadwater Principal Greetings: To all the students of Andrew Lewis, I bring you the greetings and good wishes of the entire teaching staff and their administrative officials. Each club, team, and organized group in school has as one of its recognized purposes and obligations the building of a worthy Andrew Lewis High tradition. No group has a finer opportunity for the furtherance of this purpose than the Annual Staff; no group in school works harder to add to our good traditions than do those who bring us each year the Pioneer. To the staff and its sponsors who again give us this volume to enjoy, I express the thanks of the school. Sincerely, 7 lo Discussing school policies with our Prin¬ cipal, Mr. Broadwater, are Sam Harvey, Senior Class President, Karen Johnston, Editor of the Pioneer, and Buddy Eakin, Student Body President. E. B. Broadwater, Principal Mr. Alexander, smiling even in his busiest moments. Mr. F. Carroll Alexander Assistant Principal Viewing the magnificence of the surrounding mountains, we are held spell¬ bound by this beautiful gift which God has given us. Their beauty is unending, growing more radiant each day. They are continually an inspiration to our lives, giving us faith to face the future. Their graceful peaks, scraping the blue skies, remind us that we have a higher peak to climb, that may lead to a better life. Our climb, like that of the pioneers who so courageously conquered heights and built our town, will not be an easy one but as each peak is conquered, the path will become less treacherous because we, too, will gain a knowledge of the ob¬ stacles before us and have faith in God. Mountain climbing could not be successful without the leadership of capable guides. These guides advise us on our journey and prevent our slipping or losing our foothold. Mr. Broadwater, Principal, acted as the head guide for our climb directing us over the treacherous path, aiding us in planning our futures, and helping us to attain higher goals. The assistant guide, Mr. Alexander, directed us toward higher goals in life as well as high school, assisting the student body in planning social functions for the school year, and making our climb more pleasant. We, eager as the mountain climber, could not attain the highest peak of our high school education without equipment and materials. Supply¬ ing these necessary tools, the whole m, s . Rut h Robins, office staff aided us in gaining a foothold, topping the first peak, Mrs - Wanda Hal1 and finally, reaching the highest peak, graduation. Establishing Self-Sufficiency . . . The path of life is like the steep and unknown way up a cliff which we, as mere beginners, are not yet equipped to tackle. To prepare us for this climb, to help make the way a bit easier, is the purpose of those who teach us. Perhaps the most direct help is the individual GUIDANCE given not only through Mrs. Smith’s office, but to a great extent, by all of the teachers. It is this unofficial and informal counseling that helps us to decide about such matters as going to college, what courses to take, what we are really interested in regarding a vacation, and in what direction our talents may lie. Through their work, we are aided in finding our eventual places in the world. Another source for this guidance is found in the LIBRARY. There are found not only the regular volumes which we use in ordinary day to day school work, but books, pamphlets and similar material describing the myriad trades and vocations. In the library we find what is most valuable, ideas. Through reading the thoughts of others, we are gradually led to think for ourselves. Through dictionaries, thesauruses, and other reference works, we are given the means of expressing these ideas in an intelligent and readable or listenable way. The future events of this world will be decided by just how seriously and how well we have prepared for the physical, as well as the spiri¬ tual aspects of this world. Part of this preparing for the future lies in a broadening of in¬ terests. There are many ways to broaden them, but perhaps most widespread is in the field of music. Mrs. Forrest M. Smith Guidance Mrs. Lake Newton Library Miss Mary Wright Library Understanding People Through Their Music and Language . . . MUSIC, the UNIVERSAL LAN¬ GUAGE, is used in our social and re¬ ligious life. The CHOIRS and BAND of Andrew Lewis bring us music for many occasions, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, pep assemblies, patriotic programs, and games. This music inspires us, leads us on to greater heights, calms, quiets, and leads to ecstasy or enjoyment. The mood depends upon the kind of music or we may say music puts us in the mood. There are regular classes for CHOIR and BAND, hard work, drill, exercise, and concentration, but all of this is worth the effort to the individual, to the school, and to the community. Music is the same in any language but in order to enjoy music of other lands, we gain much by knowing the language. In the FRENCH CLASSES at Andrew Lewis, the rudiments of the French language are learned. The students learn to sing the vivacious French songs such as Alouette, Au Clair De La Lune, and La Marseillaise, the French National Anthem. Many of the old hymns and songs written in LATIN have been pre¬ served and the students at Andrew Lewis have learned to sing them in Latin, preserving the rhythm and rolling soft sounds of the words. Ave Maria, Adeste Fidelis, and Semper Fidelis are three of the favorite songs of our Latin Classes. Mrs. Nelle H. Peery Mr. Louritz Christensen Miss Dorothy Miller Miss Annie V. Cook Music Band French Latin Studying and Enjoying Our Language... English, our Language, our Heritage The minstrel, the troubador, the painstaking monk, the accurate grammarian and the great writer are all a part of our ENGLISH HERITAGE. Each has made his contri¬ bution to our language. What field can boast of such richness of background and broad interests? Even the technical science of GRAMMAR may be intriguing when we try to interpret the thought of the writer by diagraming long complicated sentences. There is a challenge in precis writing to “dig down’’ to get the seemingly hidden meaning of the writer. Then, of course, there is the opportunity and challenge for creative writing, essays, poetry, letters, stories, editorials. In the study of LITERATURE, we may look in on people in all walks of life. We come face to face with the writers, learning and appreciating their style, philosophy, feelings; we know something about their human interests, joys, sorrows, failures and triumphs. We find new friends in fiction; we learn of history in the making, of war, of building up, of tearing down, of hate, of love. In short, we learn of man, his weakness, and his greatness, and of God, the Divine. In the PUBLIC SPEAKING classes, students learn to speak clearly and effectively. The shy student soon forgets himself as he learns to speak with confidence and clarity. Clear thinking and logical reasoning are developed through extemporaneous speeches which are given by the students without preparation. This past year students gave speeches on “Polio and the March of Dimes’’ to civic clubs and other organizations. The Public Speaking classes succeed in developing poise as well as artful speaking.

St. Clair Civics and History 1 I I L I i I I ' sj [ ' ' • 1 1 j fill j j Up Jl JflolliP Since the earliest age of civiliza¬ tion, men have been striving onward and upward, to reach the highest peaks of life. The students of today are able to study about the trials and tribulations, successes and failures, through the extensive courses offered in high school. The main objective of the courses in HISTORY is to instill in the student an appieciation of his HERITAGE and also a know¬ ledge of the mistakes of the past, so that these same mistakes, many of which caused dreadful wars, will not be repeated by the future genera¬ tions. Through the study of history, an interest is created in our present day government. The people of the United States live under one of the most democratic forms of GOVERN¬ MENT ever known to man. So it is with a sense ol pride in our tore- fatheis and in ourselves that civics is studied. All of the complexities of this modem day government be¬ come reasonably clear to the pupils who are enrolled in this course. As pupils study the relations be¬ tween the United States and foreign countries, a better understanding of the various races of the world is fostered. Through the study of GEOGRAPHY, a spirit of fellow¬ ship with the citizens of this rapidly- shrinking world is being created. This conquering of old prejudices is necessary for an understanding of the words, “WE ARE ALL OF ONE BLOOD.” Experimenting and Exploring Paul K. Coffman Miss Leslie V. Watkins Mrs. Edna M. Weeks Miss Pauline Webb General Science Biology, Physics General Science Chemistry, Biology Onward and upward on trails yet unblazed, into horizons unknown, and fields unheard of, talking their own strange language of formulas and symbols, are the SCIENTISTS, seeking ,testing, developing, working, and finally proving. Theory with no proof, then work with no sleep, make up their lives. No one group of persons has done so much for our modern civilization as have these. Boom! Crash! These are the amateur scientists at Andrew Lewis at work. The experiments that never quite work, but yet plant the roots of interest in the minds of the students. A person never reaches the height of his knowledge in science because it is always one jump ahead of him. There is always something unexplained, or some new process yet to be invented waiting for the initiative of some genius or hardworking scientist. The foundation for all higher science is GENERAL SCIENCE. It touches each of the other three lightly and establishes the basis for the more difficult. BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, and PHYSICS fol¬ low, all equally important in their various fields. The importance of each to the individual students varies as they prepare for their different fields of work. Science tests one’s intellect and reasoning ability. To understand fully the principals and to be able to use them takes concentrated study and clear logic. It awakens creative ability. Only after hard work, through study and conse¬ crated endeavor does one become a successful scientist. Mil r ml ji I ■ Simplifying Our Techniques . . . MATHEMATICS is a science of exact relationship. ALGEBRA, GEOMETRY, TRIGONOMETRY, SIMPLE MATHEMATICS, all im¬ portant, make up the mathematical field at Andrew Lewis. Mathematics is the exact science of comprehending the laws handed down to us by some of the greatest scholars known to our generation. Eighth grade, Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors are struggling with one mathematical problem or another. As they advance to a higher level, the struggle becomes more difficult. Even though students may be exceptionally brilliant, or intelligent, they always find some¬ thing to look forward to, something unexplained, something unknown for some eager young person who wishes to accomplish a little more and to give to the generations following a better understanding of mathematics. The study of mathematics teaches us to solve our financial prob lems, our necessary problems, and thus, leads to a happier more confident life. Mrs. Gladys Gillespie Mathematics Geometry, Algebra Mrs. Opal Keffer Algebra Miss Annie McConkey Geometry Mrs. Ethel Shocky Algebra Mrs. Hazel Waters Arithmetic Planning Better Homes . . . A nation can rise no higher than its homes. Good home life is the basic training for our climb, for our higher life. Therefore, the science of homemaking plays a very important part in the school. The HOME ECONOMICS de¬ home economics she is able to do her job as homemaker from planning her home down to solving the every¬ day problems of her family with ease and understanding. Helping to better the environment of the home is the purpose of the partment devotes its time to teach¬ ing the students not only the basic fundamentals of cooking and sewing, but also the faith and love which will make their homes an inspiration to lead the family toward greater heights. This instruction is suited for individual needs and is based on informality in class. Among the various arts taught by the Home Economics department are home decorating, personal im¬ provement and child care. When the student has completed her course in AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT. In this department, the student learns how to use the land and other resources, with benefit to him¬ self, to his home, and to his com¬ munity. In the process of learning how to use the various hand and power tools he makes p ractical re¬ pairs to farm equipment ranging -.from a what-not to a trailer. Other phases of agriculture studied by the . ; student are soil conservation, crop rotation, forest conservation, animal husbandry, and general farming. Developing Skills . . . Robert E. Kinzie Agriculture James E. Peters Paul 0. Schwartz ndustrial Arts In the upward climb, INDUS¬ TRIAL ARTS classes are equally important to the boys who are not interested in agriculture. In SHOP students learn how to cautiously but confidently use a myriad assortment of machine tools. In shop 1 and 2, participants spend six weeks in some of the following areas: elementary drawing, elec¬ tricity, cabinet making, lathe work, jigsaw work, tin can projects, ce¬ ramics, and printing. They are a prerequisite to shops 3 and 4. In shops 3 and 4, students may choose any one of these areas and stay in it for a longer period. This gives the time for making larger and more worth-while projects, such as coffee tables or end tables. In the hobby shop students make hand projects such as leather pocket- books and wallets. To those lacking a half-credit, it is a boon, because either half year may be taken without prerequisites. In MECHANICAL DRAWING, students learn the fundamentals of drafting in preparation for jobs in the fields of engineering, construc¬ tion, manufacture, and design, or simply for use in woodworking, or other hobbies. All in all, the major aim o± shop is to teach students to use their hands as well as their minds, for their greater enjoyment and em¬ ployment. Growing Physically Gaining Poise . . . • • • Mrs. Virginia Houchens Mrs. Betty Jo Patsel Miss Jimmy Martin Students, striving toward a higher standard of living and advanced learning, find that they need greater bodily endurance. The body, as well as the mind, grows day by day and needs to be working constantly. Through the pressing need for stronger bodies, the PHYSICAL EDUCATION department has been established. Physical education is a means of bodily development through various activities which are selected and used in the classes with regard to value in human growth, mental de¬ velopment, and behavior. It is a particular phase of the educational program which aims to improve the physical fitness of the girls, encourage interest in sports, promote good sportsmanship, and develop respon¬ sible citizens for tomorrow’s society. Providing experience along with other opportunities in the curric¬ ulum, physical education is im¬ portant in helping each student develop skill in the different sports including basketball, tennis, hockey, volleyball, badminton, and shuffle- board. In order to develop poise, dancing has been included in the program. Fulfilling its purpose to set high ideals, form good habits, and healthy attitudes, the physical education department prepares the student for her place in the world and helps her to set high standards of living which will be of benefit to her as an individual, a citizen, and a future leader. Developing Sportsmanship . . . As the student strives onward and upward, he often tires of struggling and seems to lose his physical en¬ durance. If his body has not re¬ ceived the proper development, the climb to the top will be impossible. Therefore, the body of each and every high school pupil needs to be developed to its fullest extent. This is made possible through high school PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASSES. In these classes the boys develop themselves both physically and mentally, learning to take the losses with the wins, keeping in mind always that ‘ ‘ When the One Great Scorer comes to write against your name, he writes not that you won or lost, but how you played the game.” The three main sports which are participated in by the pupils are FOOTBALL, BASKET¬ BALL, and TRACK; but, during the year’s course the athletic direc¬ tors also manage to give the students a cross section of many other sports including tennis, volleyball, wrest¬ ling and boxing. Behind all of these sports and athletic events there is one primary aim, the hope of BUILDING a STRONG AMERICA through STRONG CITIZENS. Beauty! Life! Gracious living! Gainful occupation! all enjoyed by these strong citizens, however, may be wiped out in one brief moment. To prevent these and similar tragedies, the DRIVERS EDUCA¬ TION DEPARTMENT at Andrew Lewis was created. H. M. Copenhaver W. C. Crawford C. Verner Crush Edwin Harless H. L. Johnston Preparing For The Business World . . . Miss Mary Goodwin Typing and VOT Miss Virginia Lawrence Bookkeeping, Typing Mrs. Dematris Meador Typing, Bookkeeping Miss Elsie Proffit Stenography, Typing W. B. Clem Consumer Education Distributive Education In the broad field of BUSINESS there are many opportunities for the student to reach greater heights. He is prepared to serve in social, religious political and diplomatic fields. To the ambitious, there is always an urge to climb higher. The BUSINESS DEPARTMENT at Andrew Lewis has grown tre¬ mendously during the past years. Now, training is available for almost any branch of business the student prefers. Excellent courses in typing, stenography, bookkeeping and general business are offered. This year a new addition is the VOCA¬ TIONAL OFFICE TRAINING which acquaints the students with the different types of office machinery being used in local business offices. This plan, with the cooperation of local businessmen, also provides jobs for the student during the afternoon. Thus the student is well experienced for his future occupation. Another course providing jobs for the students and preparing them for business is DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCA¬ TION. Having graduated from high school, some students will con¬ tinue their development through a college education while others will enter the business field. Distributive Education enables the student, who wishes to enter business, to get training and experience during the senior year of high school. These students attend regular classes dur¬ ing the morning and leave school at noon to work in ROANOKE OR SALEM BUSINESSES. Learning To Belong . . . The Eighth Grade is the founda¬ tion grade in the five-year high school system. The ENGLISH course is divided into four paits. Library science is given in the fall to acquaint the new pupils with the A. L. H. S. Libraiy. Fundamentals of grammar are reviewed and studied further. The spring semester in¬ cludes Greek and Roman mythology which serves as a backgiound for literature and history. Selected poems and stories are read for entertainment as well as for ap¬ preciation of good literature. In this grade, the student should begin, at least, to appreciate his heritage, the English language, his language. SOCIAL SCIENCE in the ' Eighth Grade is a combination of history, geography , civics, and current events. Global facts, gained from books, newspapers, and films, fur¬ nish background material for seeing our country as a part of a world community. This concept of our country is introduced by a unit called Global Facts, which is followed by a detailed study of the leading nations of the world. In such studies the history, geography, and government of the country is considered and brought up-to-date by use of the current material found in our newspaper. Mrs. M. Chapman Mrs. E.

J. Maxwell The aims of EIGHTH GRADE SCIENCE are to present to the pupil, in an appealing, but general way, the tacts and principles neces¬ sary to give him an understanding and appreciation ot his environment, to help him adapt himself to the modern world in which he lives, to cultivate his skills in problem solving and to train him to work and think scientifically. There is little in life that is not affected by science and careful, accurate observation in¬ creases the ability to do any job better no matter what it is. The course explores the fields of meteorology, astronomy, chemistry, electricity, biology, health, and con¬ servation. Its aims are to encourage and stimulate the youth of today to keep on the upward path of life. Another subject which greatly aids the struggling youths on one of life’s greatest climbs is mathe¬ matics. The purpose of EIGHTH GRADE MATHEMATICS is to convey to pupils an understanding and appreci¬ ation of the role of mathematics in many phases of modern life, and to develop some degree of skill in solving real problems that arise. Fundamental skills of preceding grades are reviewed; concepts of elementary plane geometry are intro¬ duced; formulas for finding the area and volume of simple figures are studied; percentage and its uses, insurance, banking, taxes, invest¬ ments, and measurements including the rule of Pythagoras are empha¬ sized. Preparation for academic courses is integrated with practical, every¬ day mathematics. Taking Time Out From Classroom Routine . . . Mrs. Henson and Mrs. Vineyard, chaperones, and Mrs. Weeks, sponsor of Y-Teens, smile as they watch the couples dancing during the Sweetheart Dance. Without them the dance would not have been the success it was. During the first of the school year the Virgil Class was honored by having Dr. Moses Hadas, head of the Department of Greek and Latin at Columbia Uni¬ versity, New York City, to speak to them. Dr. Hadas is the author of many books; his latest book, ‘ ‘Ancilla to Classical Read¬ ing, ” was recently chosen as the book-of-the-month for a classics book club. Pictured here are (Left to Right) the secretary at Hollins College, Dr. Stuart P. Degginger, professor of Humani¬ ties at Hollins, Dr. Moses Hadas and Miss Virginia Cook.

Each day they prepare for and supervise three crowded lunch periods. Mmmmmmm: Food! Am I hungry!” says Jo Ann Conklin as Miss Lula Francisco, our faithful worker, and Mary McDaniel serve her lunch. Mr. Morgan Schuster and Mr. Tommie Clayton are serving soft drinks to thirsty students during the lunch periods. Their courteous service helps to keep the lines of students moving quickly in the crowded cafeteria. Mr. Ralph Long, one of the nineteen drivers, whose buses carry students to and from school, has an extremely difficult job that requires patience, understanding, and an ability to disci¬ pline, as sixty-five per cent of the An¬ drew Lewis student body comes to school on these buses. Students are brought in from Catawba, Boones Mill, Starkey, Back Creek, and areas surrounding Salem. Mr. Saunders, the janitor, has many responsibilities which include heating, cleaning, and general maintenance for the school. [ 22 )• Reaching " Higher Ground " , Looking For Greater Achievements Left to right: Sam Harvey, President, Dale Early, Vice-President, Dot Eller, Secretary, Wesley Patterson, Treasurer SENIORS When the mountain climber nears his destination he looks backward, reviewing his perilous journey. Reaching the summit of the mountain he views in the distance a long range of lofty peaks, each higher than the other. Although he has attained the desired goal he realizes that this Higher Ground is only the first peak. The Senior Class have reached their first peak in their journey to Higher Ground, realizing the Climb has only begun. As they reminisce, their minds go back over the happenings of the past five years. Each year has brought many exciting and different experiences. From timid, bash¬ ful eighth graders, they have developed into dignified, well- poised Seniors. They have shared in the victories and defeats of football and basket¬ ball teams; they have thrilled with pride when the literary teams have received awards for superior work and shed tears when defeated; they participated in many assemblies, thus developing their talents as well as their leadership and abilities. The experience of being on the annual and news¬ paper staffs gave many the opportunity to express their ideas and demonstrate their creativeness. Members of the Senior Choir developed their talents and cooperated with others on many programs, giving enjoyment to their listeners. Pleasure is truly essential in the develop¬ ment of every high school student. The Seniors played an important part in making life at Andrew Lewis more enjoyable. They assisted in the sponsoring of dances and cooperated with others in many social functions. The celebration of Senior Day was the culmination of all their activities; amid all the fun, many were aware that this was the last get-together of the Class of ’55. Then came graduation and with heads uplifted, they left A. L. H. S. looking into the future with visions of greater achieve¬ ments. “Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” 24 f Emerson.

It has been a long, hard pull up the steep slope, but they can look back on the ground they have passed over and remember the pleasant times they have had at Andrew Lewis. They anxiously await the day when they, too, can take their places on the front rows as Seniors. They have thought about their place in the world, especially next year, when they really and truly be- come Seniors. The Junior Class is now ready for the duties, responsibilities, and privileges of all Sen¬ iors because they have widened their span of experiences in the past years. This year the Junior Class helped sponsor the Christmas Dance; they had the Junior- Senior Prom which was a highlight in their climb. Juniors have worked on the news¬ paper staff and annual staff. These activi¬ ties and experiences have helped them to climb with ease. They have cooperated with community projects, such as the Com¬ munity Fund compaign, Red Cross and Tuberculosis campaigns; and they have helped with the filling of the Christmas Baskets for the Basket Bureau. Promising leaders developed in the Junior Class have led their group well, and others have followed. Still, there are those who have failed to make the climb; some have dropped out along the way. In fact, only about two-thirds of the number that started out in the eighth grade have reached this level; others have lost their way. Some be¬ cause of reasons that were unavoidable, and others because of poor planning and lack of work. Now, those remaining look forward to ’56 and the goal they are seeking. “By the work one knows the work- man ‘ —J.

Reaching The Half-Way Mark Left to Right: Treasurer, Larry Clark, Secretary, Betty Ashley, President, Hugh Bainter Sophomores Having wandered through the valley and floundered into the foothills, the mountain climber continues his climb. He pauses midway, looking backward to see if he has chosen the path that will lead to higher ground. In like manner, the Sophomore Class examine their positions and find them¬ selves on middle ground. They realize that now their footing has become more secure and deeply planted. Past experiences will serve as an incentive to continue the climb. The weary and discouraged mountain climber, having been on the trail for hours, finds the need to re¬ fresh himself with a cool drink of water from a near-by spring. So the Sophomores in their middle year of high school life at times find themselves tired, full of anxiety and indecision. Many do not attempt to climb higher, being satisfied with their present elevation. They have lost their sense of direction and wander on treacherous paths seeking short cuts and by-passes to success. Like the mountain climber, they need to refresh themselves with renewed ambitions, to study and to work in order to attain the desired heights. Other members of the Class, having kept their high ideals, have withstood their temptations, and with perseverance have overcome many obstacles. Many school and extra-curricular activi¬ ties have broadened the 1954 Sophomores’ interests and have given them a new horizon. As they view these heights, they know that hard work and faith will enable them to ex¬ plore new paths. With the goal of graduation in sight they realize this is only the beginning of life’s work. They must continue to use their talents and abilities, to improve them¬ selves and to render service to others. This is the Sophomores’ obligation since they have been fortunate to have guide posts showing them the road to Higher Ground. “Heaven is not reached at a single bound; But we build the ladder by which we rise From the lowly earth to the vaulted skies, And we mount to its summit round by round. —Jqsiah Gilbert Holland 48 Sara Ahalt Bobby Allen Marjorie Alls Antonia Anderson Sue Anderton Marie Angell Judy Arrington Betty Jean Ashley Kaye Ashwell Hugh Bainter Glenn Baker Jeanne Ballator Andrew Barden III Curtis Bare Clara Barton Eugene Barton Sonja Bateman Marie Baumgardner Dorothy Bayse Joyce Beahm Jerry Beamer Montrann Beard Shirley Beckner Jane Bell Carol Boley Helen Bowden Audrey Bower Bobby Bower Henry Braswell Linda Brewer John Briggs Ann Brown Sue Ann Brown Gerald Bruffey Geraldine Byer Nadine Campbell Nancy Sue Campbell Frankie Carroll Lloyd Case Billy Cecil Patricia Cecil Richard Chappell Larry Clark Dickie Combs Jo Ann Conklin Darline Conner Larry Conner Barbara Cooper Adelene Craighead Amy Cramer Morris Cregger Jimmy Cromer Carolyn Crosswhite Scott Davis Pat DeHart Joan Dickerson Dick Dickerson Rachel Doyle Sandra Duckworth Betty Sue Dudding Priscilla Duke Martha Anne Edwards Marlene Ellis Clinton Flowers Margaret Franklin Shirley Frantz Barbara Jean Frye Dorothy Furrow Buddy Futrell Imogene Gallion Connie Garbett Elaine Gardner Freda Garman Teddy Garman Vivian Garman Bill Garrett Ronald Garst Joe Gibson Dewey Goode Nicky Goodman Christine Graham Glynn Greer Roger Greer Jimmy Greshman Louise Gross Elsie Grubb Sue Hairston Cynthia Haislip Irving Hall Warren Hankins Sue Harshbarger Betty Hartman Martha Hash Paul Haynes Peggy Haynes Kay Henderson Mack Henderson Murray Hendricks Ronnie Henry John Hesmer Joan Hodge Ruth Huff Butch Hurt Ronnie Ingoe Norma Jamison Jessie Janney Shirley Janney Charles Jennings Edward Jewell Jack Jones Anita Kelley Phyllis Kesler Watson King Lovelle Kingery Roberta Kirk Royce Koon Phyllis Lancaster Walter Lee Louis Leffler Bernard Lemon Dewey Likens Janet Lile Ruth Lockett Billy Logan Aubrey Loyd Arnold Manning Brown Martin James Martin Betty Mattern Kenneth McNeii Hallie Meador Vernon Meador Jacqueline Miller Sally Miller Dreama Mills Phyllis Mills Sue Ann Minnix Wanda Minnix Walter Minter Nancy Moran Kathleen Mountcastle Guy Mowbray Ronald Muckenfuss Betty Murphy Jeannette Myers Edith Nichols Mary Jo Nolan Beverly Norton Charlotte Obenchain Joan Overton Barbara Oyler Johnny Oyler Peggy Joyce Paulus Norma Paxton Nancy Sue Peery Duke Perry Dean Phoenix Don Pinkard David Platter Lottie Jean Poage Patte Poff Cecilia Price Patricia Pritchett Jerry Reavis Ruby Reese Jimmy Repass Gaynor Rhodes Nancy Rhudy Janet Lee Richardson Billy Roberts Joyce Roberts Norma Routt Janet Russell Lucy Russell Martha Russo Carole Rutledge Ed Sanders Judy Dean Saul Norma Jean Saul Margaret Anne Saunders Bill Senter Lindsay Sheahan Judy Shelton Virginia Shively Doug Shorter Madeline Sifers Jackie Simmons Meta Simpson Kenneth Sowder Eleanor Spangler Bill Sprouse Roy Stanford Duward Starkey Norma Starling Phyllis Anne Stinson Grace Anne Stone Bill Stra ng Richard Stroupe Joyce Strouth Larry Sutphin Bill Swain Patricia Taliaferro Martha Claire Tarter Barbara Taylor Julia Thomas Ralph Thomas Sylvia Thomas Diana Thomason William Trent Donald Turman Janet Turman Jerry Umberger Dorothy Underwood Joan Vandergrift Alvin Vaughn Bill Veasey Francis Wa,gner Mildred Waldron Wayne Waldron Peter Watts Danny Wertz Don Whitlock John Wilks Buddy Williams Curtis Williams Mary Willis Jackie Wiseley Ella Jean Wright George Wright Byron Yost Carl Young Charles Young Fern Young Phyllis Young Eddie Zini : Preparing for Higher Peaks-...

Choosing The Approach . . . , Left to right: Secretary, Dot Fretz, President, Barbara Conner, Vice President, Douglas Blount, Treasurer, Nancy Keys FRESHMEN As the mountain climber finds his way through the foothills, the most arduous task is choosing the path that will lead upward with the least difficulty, since there are many obstacles and treacherous rocks. The Freshman Class have found it difficult to select the way they are going. As they move forward, they explore; they observe; they make decisions. Each step experience for them. They must decide with much considera¬ tion whether to spend time in watching tele¬ vision and movies or to spend more time in studying. It has been an exciting year for them because they have made many steps toward the top. They have participated in thrilling activities, such as the hops, dances, football games, and assembly programs, all helping to build character. They have been well represented in various clubs in the school, such as the Library Club, Projection Club, 4-H Club, Junior Y-Teens, Sports Club, Latin Club, and Science Club. Through all these activities they have worked together because they realize the importance of leadership and coopera¬ tion which develop them for the future and the goal of Senior leadership in ’58. ‘ ‘First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.” Epictetus.

This, being the first, is a most important grade for many reasons. It prepares stu¬ dents for future steps upward; it is a step¬ ping stone between grammar school and high school; it builds a foundation for the years to come and continues the process of making good citi¬ zens. Not only the three R’s, but also self-control, thrift, re¬ sponsibility and every¬ day living are taught. The year in Eighth Grade is an Orienta¬ tion Period. The first few days in the fall are spent getting acquainted with surround¬ ings and classmates who meet the boys and girls all over the county with whom they will complete their high school education. They learn to know the teachers and their contribution in the various subject fields. Some find the Eighth Grade hard; some find it easy. There are many activities new to Eighth Graders. Those students interested in music have band practice, choral work, and indi¬ vidual recognition in special talents. There are clubs that cover all phases of student interest, and pupils are allowed to join several of them. There are special assem¬ blies presented for them. The Eighth Grade is represented on the Junior Varsity Cheer¬ leading Squad. “No great thing is created suddenly, Any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig.

The football team fielded by Andrew Lewis this past fall had the distinction of being the youngest Group I team in the State as well as the youngest ever to repre¬ sent the high school. To start the season, the Wolverines met " What ' s happening out there " wonders Coach Hal John¬ son as little Hal and his team stand ready for action. and conquered the Group I Blacksburg squad with only two men, from the starting line-up, back from last year’s Varsity team. One of the most outstanding plays in the game was a 75-yard punt return run—for a touchdown by Sonny Smith. The final score was 34-13. In the next game the Andrew Lewis grid- ders lost to the Cardinals of Danville 27-0. Kenny Norton made impressive gains for Andrew Lewis. The next three games with Thomas I Jefferson, Byrd, and Fleming were losing battles for the scrappy Andrew Lewis team, M The opponents’ scores were due mostly to fumbles by the A. L. team. Looking good , for the Wolverines were Norton, Myers, U Smith, and Henson. The scores were 1 3-7 ,la 14-6 and 20-6. Next our win over Lane put us back in|J the winning column. Beason, Norton, and Wagner scored with Gresham converting for the point. The final score was 34-12. Then came our long-awaited game with the rival team, Jefferson. With our outlined headed by Leonhardt, Christley, and Oakes stopping the ground gains, the Magicians! Blocking, Tackling, Passing, Kicking . . . took to the air and beat us 28-6. Then on October 29 the Wolverines and the team from Fairfax battled to a 6-6 tie. After this we met and edged out the Glass team of Lynchburg 7-6. Andrew Lewis wound up the season by rolling over Covington in an impressive 39-25 win. Scoring for Andrew Lewis were Norton, Lough, Beason, and Perry. Although we did not have a winning season, there were many individual gains and awards. Among those deserving special recognition were Kenny Norton and Milan Christley. All City-County were Norton, Christley, and Parr; All Western District was Norton; Second Team All State were Christley and Parr; All State Honorable Mention was Kenny Norton, first in total points scored in City-County and fourth in the State. Coaches: Mr. Johnston, Mr. Harless, Mr. Crush, Mr. Copenhaver and Mr. Crawford. In individual awards, Ken Norton received the most valuable player award and Frank Francisco was awarded the sportsmanship trophy.

THE ANDREW LEWIS JUNIOR VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM or “Baby Wolverines” experienced the most suc¬ cessful season that has been enjoyed by a J. V. team in many years. The recoid lor the year was five wins and two losses. What was behind such a successful season? Two main things! They had a group of boys playing that always were out to win regardless of the odds. They did not have a really large team and it cannot be said they bullied their way. They had a coach that did outstanding work in building a great little football team. The season started out with Troutville Varsity. The “Baby Wolverines” were really outmatched but never gave up fighting. This might be called one of the outstanding games although they lost 22-6. Next, they went on the “Victory Path” by downing Fleming Junior Varsity 12-0. This was an interesting game and the AL J. V.’s played a pretty good game. Then on they went to put away the Jefferson J. V.’s by coming from behind a halftime lead of 12-0. Final score 20-12! Nice going, boys. They then traveled to Fincastle to whip a deter¬ mined Fincastle Varsity 12-7. Then came the heartbreaker, a loss to Byrd Junior Varsity 14-7. They were up against a snappy bunch of boys and lost the game in the last minutes of play. Boom! They came roaring back the following week to trip the “high flying” Jefferson “B” team 20-19. Although the Jeffs scored often they could not beat the “Baby Wolverines”. Never once did the J. V.’s quit and as a result, they won. This can be called our greatest triumph of the year. Last, but surely not the least, they stomped the Glass J. V.’s 26-6. They had not beaten this team for quite a few years. From the final analysis of this season, the future seems indeed bright for coach Hal Johnston and his Varsity Wolver¬ ines. We can look to the next few years as the “years of plenty” in the land of the Blue and White. Holding That Line . . . Getting That Ball . .

The Wolverines opened the ’55 season with a win over Halifax of South Boston; the final tally was 70-55. After a loss to the Typhoons of New¬ port News they entered the winning column again by beating the Alumni. The next two games were losses to our city rivals, Fleming and Jefferson. Center Glenn Parr was high scorer for Andrew Lewis with 22 points in a win over Byrd. In the next contest George Washing¬ ton of Danville turned back the Lewis quintet. Lewis next romped over the Cougars of Coving¬ ton with Verl Mershon high with 17 points and Desper and Parr each getting 13 points. A. L. then whipped the Indians of Blacksburg. After that, three of the next four games were losses to Fleming, Glass, and Jefferson. We won the Byrd game 61-49 and the Covington game 54-30. After a loss to Halifax, we won the last three games with “sudden death’’ period. Leaving Mr. Harless’ team this year will be Verl Mershon, the past captain, Glenn Parr, Hugh Garst, Jim Brightwell, Penn Whitescarver, and Maurice Hancock. The Wolverines won ten games and lost nine games this season; this was doing exceptionally well considering the inexperienced team that opened with Halifax. “Greatness need not be described in short words or long ones, In many words or in few. If a man has it, you’ll know; In the competition of sports a person’s actions will speak. If he can be last man in, and not be bitter, If, as a winner, he can cheer the loser, and as a loser, congratulate the winner sincerely, Then, he has won the right to be called vic¬ torious, even in defeat.’’ Coach Harless 4 77 Developing Talents and Teamwork . . .

After the bonfire begins to die, the enthusiastic students flock to at¬ tend a free movie and a team rally di¬ rected by Mr. Walter League at the Colo¬ nial Theater. We Won’t We Won’t, We Won’t, We Won’t go to the Woods, We have, We have, We have got the goods, We have got the rhythm, And we have got the jazz, And we’ve got a better team than Jefferson has. 4 84 }y Relaxing, Socializing ...

Mr. Broadwater entered into the fun at the Faculty Picnic at Longwood. Here he is talking to another faculty member during the light moments of the picnic. At the tea given for the Senior girls by the Women’s Division of the Roanoke Alumni Association, girls from Roanoke College presented a fashion show. Here an evening dress is being modeled. After the tea, the girls of the Senior Class were served punch and cookies. Talk of the lovely fashions seen was heard everywhere. Returning Home . . .Reveling . . .

One of the gaily decorated cars in the Homecoming Parade was that of the Jr. Y-Teens as they urged the team on to victory. The life of any high school is reflected through its assembly programs. The assemblies held weekly at Andrew Lewis this year have been educational, entertaining, and inspiring. The programs have proven to be of a great variety. There have been skits and plays participated in by the students and faculty alike, guest speakers including alumnus, Cabell Brand, and the Reverends Raymond Musser and Charles Jolly, oratorical and speaking contests sponsored by Mrs. Strickler’s department, Southeastern Assemblies brought to us by popular demand, and pep assemblies, through which school spirit and enthusia sm were re¬ generated in the halls of Andrew Lewis. Reflecting School Life, Talent, Ideas . . . " Oh dem dry bones” was the main at¬ traction of the puppet show presented by the Southeastern Assemblies. Also presented was a play, " The Tinder Box " . In Caesar ' s dream during the Latin Club Assembly the " Keynotes " (Left to right), Carl Harris, Creed Frazier, Buddy Eakin, and Joe Ferguson, give their rendition of why boys give up the form for gay Paree. " Ouch! " is the exclamation of Liberace (Pat Darden) as Brother George (Douglas Vaughan) hits him over the head with his dear violin. This scene of violence took place during the assembly presented by the Latin Club. Mrs. Strickler ' s Public Speaking Class gave several assemblies for the Eighth Grade. Pictured here is Jeanette Witt, who gave a reading entitled " Sis Hop¬ kins. " Buddy Eakin opened the assembly and Verl Mershon read the Scripture. Many of the year’s as¬ semblies were sponsored by individual clubs. One of the best of these was presented by the Latin Club, a play called “Roamin’ Holiday,’’ written by Sam Harvey. Each class showed its ver¬ satility in talent shows before the student body. The Senior Talent Show, ably emceed by Sonny Hawley, stood out among these. As the year drew to a close, one of the last assemblies looked forward to by the entile student body, was the Annual Assembly, in which the annual dedication was announced. The life of our high school in 1954-55, as depicted through these assemblies, was indeed a bright one. M 87 } Giving Thanks • • “MANY THANKS,” the play given by the Y-Teens for the THANKSGIVING assembly was enjoyed by all. In the cast the leading roles were filled by (left to right), Theda Draper, Carolyn Brammer, Nancy Hubbard, Elaine Craun, Nayota Gusler as Uncle Sam, Lucy Marshall, Rosalie Mowles, Cleta Ferguson, Joyce Beahm, Martha Hash, and Joan Buhles. Other students as the children. Inspiring music was provided by the Junior Choir, pictured, and the Senior Choir. “Unto thee, Lord, ’mid these purpled mountains, ’mid our valleys rich with golden wheat, ’mid our store¬ houses filled with new picked apples, ’mid our barns with fattened cattle, and our houses filled with peace, we give thanks.” Barbara Cannon, Susan Hackman, Hugh Bainter and Sam Harvey, class presidents, arranged the baskets of food presented to the Christmas Basket Bureau at the assembly. During the Christmas season the Senior Choir helped fill our hearts with joy as their music rang through the halls with their annual Christmas caroling. Doors to classrooms were open and hearts were made glad as the voices of the singers brought joy and praise.

Some of the couples stopped dancing and decided to sit down. Here we see the girls gossiping while the boys look at the stu¬ dents on the floor.

This year the Sodalitas Latina presented its tenth May Queen. Since May Day originated with the Romans celebrating festivals in honor of Maia and Flora, it was fitting that th e Latin Club should give the first May Day. At the first five celebrations the Queens were crowned by three principals, the superintendent of schools, and the mayor of Salem. In 1950 the father of the Queen crowned her. We have followed that custom since that time. The first four were merely called ‘ ‘The May Day Dance. ” The girls wore evening dresses that were all different. There was dissatisfaction when we had them all made alike! At first only Latin Club members were in the court, but when it became such a big event we opened it to the whole school. We became more creative, started using themes and in 1950 made a ceiling for the gym.

The Student Council and the Class Council are the governing bodies of Andrew Lewis. Through these organizations the voice of the students is heard. The Student Council for this year has been one of the most active in recent years. Under the leadership of Buddy Eakin and with the guidance of Miss Webb, many worth¬ while projects have been completed. In November, the District Convention was held in Salem, with representatives from twenty-two schools present. The other achievements of the Student Governing Body included the establishing of a weekly devotional period, the aiding of orientation of new pupils, and the virtual completion of a much needed Hl|ww ll Alii m Mism m W sWL v L 0 iflifa PH IP fi» TbUT handbook. The main function of the Class Council is the providing of a connect¬ ing link between the Student Council and the individual homerooms. These two councils are truly the means by which the students express their ideas concerning school affairs.

LIBRARY CLUB The Library Club believes that books are “the minds, hearts, and voices of the past,” making us heirs to the good things of the human race. It is through this belief that the members of the Library Club and Staff assist the student body and faculty of Andrew Lewis in gaining some¬ thing of value in enjoyable or informative reading. In order to make their thoughts li ve and to make students and faculty libraiy con¬ scious, the club members have had various activities. During Book Week, the members of the club entertained the faculty with a tea. Posters, new books, and other dis¬ plays publicized Book Week. Throughout this week, the members attempted to in¬ terest the students and faculty in literature. In February, the Club gave a tea for the members and the Library Staff. The club members took several tours through other libraries, including one to the Roanoke Public Library.

The next ‘ ‘ burst of song ’ ’ was heard at the District Student Council Convention held at the Salem Baptist Church in November. With grateful hearts and joyful voices the Junior and Senior Choirs added their songs of praise to the Thanksgiving assembly. At Christmas, the Senior Choir filled the halls with rounds of traditional carols. Both choirs presented Christmas selections at the assembly. After the Choir sang the “ Halle¬ lujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah, the students left, feeling inspired, to celebrate in a sacred manner ‘ ‘ The Birthday of a King.” As a community project, the choirs par¬ ticipated in the monthly broadcast, “ Young Roanoke Sings, ” sponsored by W. S. L. S. In February, six talented members repre¬ sented the Senior Choir at the District All- y West Choir Festival held in Roanoke, Vir¬ ginia. For an encore performance, the Senior Choir was asked again by the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra to sing along with the high schools and college choirs, the oratorio, “The Ordering of Moses.” This perform¬ ance, given at the American Legion Audi¬ torium, was truly a highlight of the year. In March, the Senior Choir took part in the District Music Festival at Woodrow Wilson Junior High School and presented a musical program for an assembly at Roa¬ noke College. In collaboration with the Latin Club, the choirs assisted in the production of the Eas¬ ter Pageant. The effectiveness of the living pictures of Christ was made more symbolic by the appropriate music. The last thrilling but sad experiences for the choir were the Baccalaureate and Com¬ mencement exercises. The graduating class entered the auditorium for the service to the singing of “O God, Our Help in Ages Past. ” Other numbers were sung during the service and the class left the auditorium to the challenging hymn, “Once to Every Man and Nation. ” Marching in time.

Christensen, the band has become one of the most important scholastic organi¬ zations. The rhythmical marches and picturesque drills add pep and sparkle to the football games. The Pythian Bowl game, sponsored an¬ nually by the Shriners, the Roanoke Mer¬ chants Christmas Parade and the Home¬ coming Parade were among the other activities of the band this year. With the help of the Band Boosters and the newly elected band officers, the band was able to take an overnight trip to Winchester to be in the Apple Blossom Festival. They won First place in class B. The annual spring concert brought the work and practice of the band to a close for another year. 4 98 fa Visualizing, Hearing . . .

Visual Education In this age of ever-increasing knowledge and variety, many departments have been created to lead students onward into specific fields of work. The Audio-Visual Depart¬ ment, working behind the scenes, is one of these departments prominent in its work at Andrew Lewis. The boys who are members of this department receive valuable training in the use of speaker systems, movie projectors and recordings; and they also gain much back-stage train¬ ing. The boys give up their study periods to aid the teachers and other students in their education by showing motion pictures. Under the capable leadership of Mr. Ed Harless, the department also plays an important part in putting on the assembly programs by handling the lights and setting up sound equipment, movie projectors, and slide projectors.

Passing On The Torch Of Life “Tradere lampada vitae,” to carry on the torch o± life, is the motto of the Sodalitas Latina. As the Provincials rest, the Patricians labor and the Plebeians struggle, the Latin Club endeavors to uphold this motto. However, it is not all work and no play. The year began with the annual business meeting in October. The social highlight of the year was the faculty picnic at Long- wood, where both students and teachers enjoyed themselves. For the first program of the year the members of the Virgil Class gathered their wits and presented a play, “The Football Rally on Mount Olympus.” The other classes alternated and presented their programs at separate meetings. Each year, the members of the Latin Club present the Easter Pageant, which portrays scenes from the life of Christ and the Crucifixion. The part of Christ is portrayed by the senior whom the club chooses. The May Dance, which is the first spring dance of the school year, was sponsored by the Latin Club. The Queen and at¬ tendants of the May Court were also chosen by the members of the Latin Club. These are the highlights of the Sodalitas activities for the year 1954-55, which has indeed been a prosperous year. The Off-Beats and members of Miss Cook ' s Virgil Class take a bow after entertaininq the Latin Club. To the rhythm of the Off-Beats and the " Rah! Rah! " of the cheerleaders.

Leading By Service BETA CLUB • • Ahead of all high school students lies the mountain of life, a high, forbidding barrier, guarding the plateau of success and achievement that everyone hopes to reach someday. Who will be able to climb this barrier, to fight their way up the cliffs and over the crags to the land at the top? Only the bravest, the most determined, the best trained climbers like those prepared by the Beta Club. The Andrew Lewis chap¬ ter of the Beta Club, a branch of the national hon¬ or society by that name, has had a remarkably ac¬ tive year filled with such interesting activities as sponsoring a hop, selling football programs, and highlighted by the candle¬ light initiation ceremony and the state convention in Roanoke. DOT ELLER, VICE PRESIDENT, MARTHA MORRIS, RECORDING SECRETARY; MRS.

Martha Jane Hall, Marie Fralin, Nancy Caudill, Yvonne Hailey, Jackie Lilly, Pat Deyerle, Pat Harris, Ed Hill, Lucy Bette Clem, Peggy Gene Senter, and Shelby Lipps are off to attend the convention at Hotel Roanoke which was one of the high lights of the year. About nine hundred delegates from the chapters in Virginia and West Virginia attended. The local chapter sent four delegates and about thirty members attended. The Andrew Lewis Chapter had a musical skit at the convention and assisted with the registrations and entertainment. Jane Henson, Rowena Holliday, Marie Harter, Susan Hack- man, Barbara Mills, Peggy Smiley, Betty Lou Vinyard, Cynthia Butts, Carolyn Greiner, Sam Harvey, Jimmy Gore, and Buddy Eakin entertained the delegates at the convention with a musical skit.

After only four years, it had grown and achieved enough to be awarded in 1954 the Miller Award for being the most outstanding science club in the State of Virginia. The Bi-Phy-Chem is also one of the most active clubs in school. The programs in¬ cluded such interesting speakers as Dr. First Row, Left to Right: Billy Emory, Wesley Hartman, Wayne Layman, Mike Cromer, Mel Andrews, Ernest Beckner, Howard Butts, Roy Griggs, James Gresham, Billy Dale, Marvin Grubb.

The Bi-Phy-Chem, Biology, Physics, and Chemistry Club is affiliated with the Virginia Junior Academy of Science and Science Clubs of America. In 1954 the Bi-Phy-Chem Science Club had enlarged to such a great extent that, in order to accommodate the students com¬ fortably, the club was divided into two divisions, the Junior and Senior. The Junior club had the same activities and Proving, Concluding . . . field trips as the Senior club and differed only in its programs. The Junior division consisted of only eighth and ninth grade students. The outstanding activity of the year was the Roanoke County Science Fair held at William Byrd High School. As a result many AL students received honors. In the Junior division, eighth grade winners were all from Andrew Lewis. They were Carolyn Rakes and Delores Emerson who tied for first, Connie Mowles, second and Muriel Ferguson, third. Honorable mention went to Frank Sellers, Mel Andrews and Suzanne Bonine. Ninth grade winners were Gordon Morris, first, Molly Lenaeus, second, and Alice Ulrey, third. Greg Wroniewicz won honorable mention. Senior division winners in biological sciences were Jeanne Ballator, Marie Fralin, Frank Garst, Elaine Gardner, Margaret Saunders, Edward St. Clair and Buddy Williams. Physical Science winners in the Senior division were Robert Allen, Samuel Clemons, Pat Peters, Franklin O’Beirne, Peggy Senter and Fred Woodward. Here some of the members of the science club have gathered to look at an interesting exhibit on the types of trees and wood found in the surrounding area. Lloyd Case is explaining the various samples of wood in the exhibit to the other members of the club.

Sharing Business Techniques THE FUTURE BUSINESS LEADERS OF AMERICA is a club organized specifically for those students majoring in the business field. The club was organized to promote the ideas of mutual understanding and cooperation in the fields of business industry, labor, the home, the church, the school and peoples of our own and other lands. The officers of the FUTURE BUSINESS LEADERS OF AMERICA are ROBBIE FARIES, PRESIDENT, DORIS CUNDIFF, TREASURER, BARBARA MILLS, SCRAPBOOK CHAIRMAN, MARIE OLIVER, VICE PRESIDENT, NANCY DONALDSON, REPORTER, SHIRLEY EUBANK, SECRETARY. They are discussing plans and activities for the year. The Scrapbook Committee, Betty Poole, BAR¬ BARA MILLS, CHAIRMAN, and Betty Switzer, were preparing a scrapbook in which were recorded all the activities of the club. This scrapbook was entered in competition with those from all the clubs in Virginia. Since this was the first year for the future Busi¬ ness Leaders of America at Andrew Lewis, there had not been time to promote activities. However, members of the club, Darlene Harris, Joyce Gray, Helen Williams, Joan Vandergrift, Ann Brown, Connie Garbett, Marlene Ellis, Shelby Harless, Shirley Hall, Pat Pritchett, Betty Hartman, Mary Lou Monger, Virginia Fisher, Carol Moore, Betty Lancaster, Joanne Angell, Pat Crowder, Geraldine Conner, Frankie Reed, Pat Harris, Laverne Arga- bright, Joyce West, Joyce Hill, Gloria Barnett, Barbara Boles, Eva Hurt, Gloria Spenser, Cleo Martin, Mary Hicks, Darlene Lee, Shelby Cun¬ ningham, Joan Buhles, Nelda Bohon, Joanne Alift ' , Betty Bayne, Mrs. Meador, Mickie Robertson, Ronald Muckenfuss and Miss Profitt took a trip to the Roanoke World-News Building. The club endeavors through its activities to en¬ courage every young boy and girl to take part in social, political, community and family life, to combat prejudice, and to think logically, reaching the conclusion that a young person regardless of race, creed, or color, has a right to live a happy, useful life, believing in his ability to do work effi¬ ciently, to think clearly, and to make America a better place in which to live.

Distributive Education One Mountain of life, the problem of a career, is a really tough peak to tackle, especially for anyone who has not had the proper training and finds himself on the slopes of the mountain with no preparation for the climb ahead. Distributive Education offers this training to students interested in making retail and whole¬ sale business their life’s work. It gives them an opportunity to learn the art of selling and making their merchandise desirable to buyers. In addition to all the work involved in the D. E. course, the students had many interesting activities this year which provided great fun for them. In the area, state, and national conven¬ tions, they competed with other D. E. clubs in salesmanship, job interviews, and demonstration contests. They prepar ed a Christmas basket as they have done every year. The showcase in the front hall held a different display each week. A skit in an assembly program introduced the student body to the woes of Joyce McAfee, girl undertaker, and advertised a brand of bubble gum that is also an excellent substitute for glue. The D. E. Club is a remarkably active organi¬ zation.

The 4-H clover leaf emblem identifies over two million boys and girls belonging to the largest youth organization in the world. The Andrew Lewis 4-H Club, having the largest enrollment in Roanoke County, is one of the 1,950 clubs in Virginia. The policy of all 4-H club members is “learning by doing”. Each member puts this into practice by carrying either an Agriculture, Homemaking, or Community Project. These projects help develop skills and attitudes. Not only does the individual benefit, but better communities develop. Some of the club members’ projects this year have been home improvement, farm and home safety, food preparation, poultry, meat animal, health, and farm and home electric. The club participated in many school activities. They sponsored a “hop” after the William Byrd- A. L. football game, decorated a float for the Home-Coming Parade and shared in the Community Christmas basket donations. National 4-H Club Week was observed and a number of members took part in the county observance of “Rural Life Sunday”. A Junior 4-H Club was organized this year, composed of students from the eighth and ninth grades. This training will prepare them for greater responsibilities. Striving for High Ideals . . .

JUNIOR Y-TEENS The Junior Y-Teens is a branch of the Senior Y-Teens, composed of eighth and ninth grade girls, whose goal is to help humanity by learning to live with others and serve their fellowman. Among their many activities this year was an eighth grade talent show, in which the girls worked together to entertain others. A slumber party gave them an opportunity to share experiences and learn to know each other better. While enjoying these activities, they remembered those less fortunate with a care package sent to Korea and a Christ¬ mas basket for a needy family. In the spring they had another op¬ portunity to work together during the potato chip sale. This year has been a busy one, but every member enjoyed it thoroughly. Growing in Christian Character . . .

The purpose of the SENIOR Y-TEENS is to build a fellowship of women and girls devoted to the task of realizing in common life those ideals of personal and social living to which they are committed by faith as Christians. In this endeavor, they seek to understand Jesus, share His love for all people, and grow in the knowledge and love of God. The Senior Y-Teens celebrating their centennial year have had one of the most active programs in the school this year. The year’s activities began in September with Roll Call Week. They presented each faculty member with a favor, re¬ minding them of the Y-Teens and their purpose. Several girls attended the Scarf Ceremony at the Y. W. C. A. which helped make Roll Call Week a success. In November, they had the Recogni¬ tion Service in the First Methodist Church in Salem. The spiritual influence of this program has been a light of guidance throughout the year. The Y- Teens took part in the Home-Coming Parade and won the prize for having the best float. Two representatives attended the World Fellowship Banquet. A play for the Thanksgiving Assembly was pre¬ sented by the Y-Teens. They decorated the Christmas tree and put greens around in the hall at Christmas. Carols were sung in the vestibule, creating a Christmas atmosphere. In February, two delegates were sent to the Virginia State Y-Teens Conference in Norfolk, Virginia, and the club spon¬ sored the Sweetheart Dance which proved to be very successful. In the spring, the Y-Teens participated in the variety show at the Y. W. C. A., the Potato Chip Sale, and had the annual “Holy Week Services’’. Some of the service projects were helping the Community Chest workers, the Roanoke Valley Heart Association, contributing food for a Thanksgiving basket, giving gifts to needy children at Christmas, helping with the March of Dimes project and the Easter Lily Sale for Crippled Children. Indeed, this has been a successful and enjoyable year for the Senior Y- Teens. K V 115 Competing . . . experiencing . . . strengthening . . . The SPORTS CLUB might well be spoken of as the sister of the Mono¬ gram Club. Its membership is limited to those girls who have excelled in athletic ability, earning at least fifty points a semester and to those who have earned their monograms through extra-curricular activities including basketball, volleyball and soccer. This year the club, under the SPONSORSHIP OF MISS JIMMIE MARTIN, physical education in¬ structor, has sponsored the Home¬ coming Hop and Talent Show, and selected the Homecoming King and Queen. Ribbons! paper! glue! and paint! These chief materials were used as these girls, Judy Saul, Norma Saul, Phyllis Stinson, Ruth Thompson, Betty Helms, Sue Ann Brown, Patsy Lemon, Carol Sue Poff, Barbara Cooper, Norma Routt, Martha Russo, NINEVAH TURMAN, PRESIDENT, Sandra Quick, BETTY LANCASTER, RECORD¬ ER OF POINTS, Doris Price and Sandra Wygal, decorated for the Home¬ coming Talent Show and Hop.

Along with the party, clothing and food were collected and given to a needy family. Honoring Athletic Achievements . . . THE MONOGRAM CLUB The boys pictured above are the cream of the athletic crop at Andrew Lewis. Membership in this club can be earned only by boys who have earned a letter through participation in varsity athletics, either as a player or a manager. This year, under the able guidance of football coach Hal Johnston and president Glenn Parr, the club has achieved many worth-while projects. The officers of the Monogram Club meet with Mr. Johnston, their sponsor, to plan the activities of the club for the year. The officers are KENNETH NORTON, SECRETARY, SONNY HAWLEY, VICE PRESIDENT, GLENN PARR, PRESIDENT, and VERL MERSHON, TREASURER. This year the Monogram Club con¬ tributed a Christmas Basket to a needy family. Herlon Leonhardt, Wayne Waldron, Ashton Lough, Don Oakes, Jerry Wood, Larry Clark, and Bruce Henderson, look over the food col¬ lected to see if they have reached their quota. Bobby La Garde, Joan Caldwell, Mary Linda League, Fred Hoback, Betty Lancaster, Jon Manetta, Cyn¬ thia Butts, William Musselman, Julia Thomas, and Ralph Thomas hop rhythmically to the tune of the Bunny Hop during the Monogram-Cheer¬ leader Hop. 117 }£ • Stimulating School Spirit . . . j i.ysi fi|5j 1%’ -W H f r ■ ELyjl j Jfejdl W T ■■ First Row, Left to Right: Myra Wills, Phyllis Batten, Gayle Snider, Patty Boone, Nancy Donaldson, Glenda Fowler, Jo Ann Conklin, Carol Boley, Lucy Clem, Shirley Eubank.

PEP CLUB The Pep Club has done much this year to stimulate school spirit. Their enthusiasm and pride have created a better understanding not only among students at Andrew Lewis, but also students from other schools. Their activities have been colorful, varied, and have helped contribute enjoyment to school life. For the first time this year, the Pep Club sponsored the Home-Coming Parade. All clubs were eligible to enter a float. First place went to the Y-Teens for their World Fellowship float. During the football season the club decorated the goal posts with school colors of both teams. At intermission time, they furnished all cheer¬ leaders with refreshments. Banners with “pep” slogans were posted on the Senior hall before each game. By promoting better sportsmanship, the club has helped the school learn how to be gracious in victory and proud in defeat. The cheerleaders, chosen in the spring, are mem¬ bers of the Pep Club. They introduce new yells and cheers. Always present at a game or pep rally, the members, supporting the team, add life and spirit. Some of the favorite cheers are Blue Team, Wolverines, Victory, and Shout Students Shout!

HI-Y ‘ ‘I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord.” The members of the Andrew Lewis Hi-Y, living as they do among these changeless moun¬ tains, realize this and seek to develop and extend a solidity of faith and brotherhood, not only among themselves but throughout the whole school, and to develop themselves mentally, spiritually, and physically. To this aim, the club held frequent meetings at the Y. M. C. A., and took part in the District Tri-Hi-Y meeting in November and the Model General Assembly in March. They also held a Father-Son banquet in March. The warmth and friendliness as father and son enjoyed their informal meeting around the board was gratifying and refreshing. These activities all have this one aim, to try to give warmth and fellowship on our upward climb; if this has been accomplished, then the Hi-Y has served its purpose. 4 120 } Spreading The News . . .

(Why is she carrying around this Richmond paper? Could it be that she is looking for the picture of a football hero from T. J.?) In the background Mary Lou Monger chats with Martha Hash about an article in the Et Cetera. 4 121 } Editing, Writing, Selling, Photographing Karen Johnston Editor Miss Velva Wood Circulation Advisor Jane Henson Assistant Editor Copywriters: Yvonne Hailey, Marie Fralin, Anne Arthur, Sam Harvey, Diane Drew; Back: Mac Sherrard, NAYOTA GUSLER, HEAD COPYWRITER.

Unseen in the distance, hidden by the glare of the bright rays, higher peaks await our conquering; but at the moment, we must take stock of our accomplishments so far, in order to prepare for these peaks. In the past year, we have had much fun, as well as work; each has been controlled largely by our own inclinations. In the future, the day which will follow this sunrise, the peaks to be conquered will be high and challenging. If we depend on our strength alone, we shall fail; but, with Divine guidance and the help of friends, if we have faith enough, we shall have the strength to conquer these peaks, or to face the defeats, and facing defeats, turn them into victories. With renewed hope, and gratitude to those who have helped us, and treasuring memories of yes¬ terday, we go forth into the light of a new day. Stop, Look and Patronize " t U Xcr . .
