As for our " Sth A " davs we were too yoiuiij and i ay to care for a history. We had a lari er and more noisv class then than we have ever had since, but we are honored b - onl - a few of them now. Our President that year was l.on West, our colors blue and white, and our class flower carnation. The g-reatest event of the year was our graduation from the Sth grade. Our class dav program was a success, and no college graduate was ever more ])roud of his shee])skin than we of onr (li])lomas. Overwhelmed with jo - when we again entered school, being no longer " Sth A Scrubs. " but verdant Freshmen, feeling that our lives had just started on an upward climb to higher and better things. W ' e started our new year right bv electing Robert Castle President. While many had not returned, fortune favored us b - sending others in their ])laces. One of whom is now our faithful President. This was a hard year for otir class as well as for the schocil and the countr - because of the influenza epidemic which swe]it over us and took awav niany valuable workers. Many remained, however, having good times and filling our minds with valuable information for later years. Influenza passed, vacation over, schools days come again and forty lia])]) -. enthusiastic bo_ s and girls re-assembled, — Sophomores, l ' ' i(). Our number had not diminished. There were sufficient new ones to take the few ] laces left vacant. The year was rather uneventful even the statement of the other classes that they could see our wings grow must not lie taken literally. But real ])rogress there was. in information and ision. In the faill of l ' ' il real life began for us as " jolly jmiiors. " This time there was added to our class a large number from arious junior High Schools thron.ghout the state. Ivirly in the year we effected a re-organization of tlie class and elected our final list of officers: Arthur .Moore. President; Mary Holshouser. Nice President; Silas Casey, I ' oet ; Marion Philli])s, I ' rophet ; Dorothv liaxes. Historian; I,uc Mast, Pianist. We selected green and white as our class colors, weet pea as our class flower and " I ' ush. Pull or get out of the way " as our motto. Bv far the most iniixirtant event of the year was the entertainment of the class of ' 22 on March 17tli. An e ent, however, of almost e(|ual interest was our annual hike-this time to visit " Devil ' s C.ate " on the beautiful Blowing Rock turn])ike. August, 1922, the last }ear in high school, we are Seniors. In our strug- I ' . ' lK ' I «tr(y -two Ci)c Ut)oDoDcnDton SENIOR CLASS HISTORY— Continued n g-les to keep the class intact, we suffered but four defeats ; one to teaching ; two to matrimony ; and one to business. But to l alance this loss thirteen new members joined our ranks. At the first class meeting we created and filled two additional offices : Testator, Baxter Linney ; Cartoonist. Ernest Billings. After this, for the next two or three dozen meetings, we took parlimentary training in an effort to select rings. Then came the selection of the Rhododendron Staff and then the planning for a fine Annual, and our best work at cotnposition. It is with a feeling of regret that we approach the time of parting from our classmates, teachers, and other school friends. But even this regret largely loses its edge when we contemplate the l)roader horizon and clearer vision which these years have made possible to us. Standing full fifty strong looking to future fields of service we bid adieu to our dear Alma Mater, with thankful hearts for past benefits and bright hopes for future achievements. F age Forty-three €i)c BboDoDenDron Senior Class Prophecy Cdlorado Spring ' s, Coloracid, June the fi. I ' m Rev. Robert Castle, and Clifford Hudson, Calcutta, India. Dear old schoolmates : — We have been planning ' to write on ever since we learned two weeks ago at Boone, N. C, while attending the tenth anniversar_ ' of our graduation from the Training School, that you two are doing missionary work together in far off India. We have just returned from another year of diplomatic work in South America, and are taking a little vacation here. Knowing of your interest in our class, and in the Training School we will report in lirief the things we learned at the Class Banquet where, as you know, each was expected to report his own achievements. We saw the first class receive from this Institution Bachelor ' s degrees in Liberal Arts. Btit this advancement in the standard of the school was in no respect g ' reater than was the rnaterial progress. In addition to the eight buildings of our school days were a large, modernly e(|uip])ed administration Iniilding, a hospital, a new g ' ymnasiimi, a model school building, a dining room, accommodating a thousand students, a bakery, a cold storage ])lant, model laundrv and, a jiower plant, adecpiate for years to come. President B. B. Dougherty is still at the head of the school sur- rounded bv a large cor] ' )s of university, trained teachers. The facts concerning (lur class of ten years ago caused many, " 1 told you so ' s " , but there were stifficient surprises to add variety. The Superintendent of the Oxford Orphanage Asylum Farm and the mistress of his beautiful home on College Street, h ' ranklin Baird and Miss Daisy Lee Mast (now Mrs. Baird) were present. Franklin had graduated at State College. A letter of regrets from Arkon, Ohio, signed Mrs. Bud Billings brought to memory the beautiful " ' alle Crucis " and Miss Wilma Baird. " Meg " Love after leaving the A. T. S. completed her education at Salem College, specializing in her best lri ed i ' )rofession, " Math. " She is now a teacher at Elon. Blanche Mallock and Maggie llerndon are still single, but they have forged to the front in the teaching ])rofession. Tliey spend their sinnmers conducting- County Summer Schools. Our brilliant Baxter I.inney has continued his school interest in citizen- ship and become one of the first criminal lawyers in the state. Politically, he leads his party; while sentimentally, he continues his love of Coffey. No long ' er by the same name, however. The old identity of Ashe and Watauga counties was beautifully sym- bolize by Howard Iast and Maye Barlow — both write their names " Mast. " You remember our discussion concerning wliether h ' -rnest Billing was more interested in literature or in cartooning. Well like the men who cjuar- relled over the chameleon, we were both right, lie married I ' Vances Laws, the popular young writer, and has jiroven the most formiflable rival of ( icorge Mc lanus, in the Sundav editions. P.Tge Forty- four Cf)e RboDoDenDton SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY— Continued D Norma Brown and " Giant " Hayes who went so eagerly to college after graduation here, report now from the concert stage in New York City. One familiar face on the campus is that of Floy Cannon. Now everybody addresses her with deference as " Miss Cannon. " She finished her Art course in Washington City and now teaches in the Appalachian Training School. Among the group were two distinguished looking gentlemen fashionably dressed and confident in their movements. They are the Casey brothers, two surgeons from a great hospital, giving their lives in service for the love of humanity. The lady introduced as head nurse was Lula Taylor, now Mrs, Casey, Paul recently disappeared from the hospital causing great excitement but soon returned with his blushing little bride, Ella Garland, who since her school days, had been waiting for him in Lover ' s Lane. From the North Carolina College for Women comes Lola Church, who is at the head of the Home Economics Department. Then here was Tom Coffey. Could it l)e that it was the same old Tom of the A. T. S. who had gained such a reputation in tennis? His fame is scattered abroad and the papers are anxiously watched by his classmates for his high scores which seem so easily won. Jule Warren who, as you remember enlisted in the L ' . S. army soon after leaving our class, is pushing steadily toward his am,bition : to attain the rank of Major General as reward for his loyalty and service. He is a handsome fellow — straight as an arrow. After spending four years at Meredith College, Annie Lee Crisp was elected Dean of Women at a College in Ohio, but answered a more insistent call to preside over a cozy little bungalow in Atlanta, Ga, She writes her name Mrs. Fred Hodges. One of the greatest surprises of the occasion was furnished bv a letter from a middle western town, explaining why Tom Farthing and Linda Cannon, now Mrs, Farthing, could not be present. They are traveling throughout the state giving musical recitals, and crowds flock to hear them every time they appear on the stage, Blanche Gamljill after her last year at Boone, by Miss Jarrell ' s advice, went to Peabody College in Tennessee, and after receiving her degree decided to be " Home Demonstrator. " She is now at work on the coast — one of the •best Demonstration agents in the State. .After Robert Gleen had finished his course at Chapel Hill, N. C, he took Beatrice Shull as helpmate and accepted the position as Cashier in the First National Bank of Boone. Addie Hardin sjjent four years at Meredith College, and is now teaching English in the East Carolina Teacher ' s College, You know it was supposed that the athletic interests of our class would be but temporary, Init not so. In the opening game of the New York Giants who should appear as umpire l)ut James Dula, while Byron Williams still holds the position as first pitcher on the same team. Mary Holshouser held on to her purpose to become a nnusician complet- ing her course at the New England conservatory. She is now teaching at the North Carolina College for Women. You :rtay get to see some of our class yet. Lucy Mast and Blanche Page Forty-five €t)t RboDoDciiDton SI ' :X1()K CLASS I ' ROlMlia ' V— continued D Hurton. after finishing here, selected music as their life-work, and spent sev- eral years studying in New " S ' ork City. They are on a world tour — just now in Paris or London. Earl Miller completed his course at Cettsburg College. Pa.. accom|)lisliing himself in mathematics and athletics, and he is now a widely known teacher and leader in athletics. Arthur Moore, after graduating at the University of North Carolina and taking a post graduate course at Pennslyvania Medical College, is now a surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Lizzie Lee Osburne went to North Carolina College for Women and finished her B. Mus. degree in four years. She has since taken Miss Lucy Coffey ' s place in the A. T. S. and is distinguishing herself. Edward Quails has worked up a Ixximing trade in the hardware business. He now, as in his school days, is at all times an ardent admirer of the fair se.K. but nevertheless fighting life ' s battles single-handed and making good. Honor Dee Redmond, having taken her degree from Jefferson Medical College, is now at Johns Hopkins Hospital, as head nurse. Wilametta Rowe. after two sessions in the State Legislature of North Carolina, is now a ver - active and influential member in the State. Claudia S])encer and Clonnie Peterson are ncnv occupying Prof. Smith ' s and Downum ' s places as Science and Latin teachers in the A. T. S. ( " lUs Williams graduated frtmi the law school of the L ' niversity of l enn- svlvania and afterward showed his good judgment b marrying Bernice Cook. He oj ened an office in Winston-Salem. North Carolina where he made his home until he was a]i]K)inted Judge of the Supreme Court. " S ' ou remember the lieautiful home wedding of Mabel Williams and Howard Holshouser in the summer of l ' 2, . Howard is a prominent mem- lier of Congress. ' Plie have a beautiful home on Pennsylvania avenue. Anita Winkler lias the distinction of being the first lady of North Caro- lina to hold a seat in the National Senate. But unfortunately she seems out of harmony with life and has recently in troduced a bill to tax all bach- elors to supjiort an old maid ' s club. This has caused much lieated discussion and a great stir in the land. You remember how. in cjur ])layful UKJods, we used to characterize John Howell as " liest penman, best friend, liest philosopher, and best judge of human nature. " He has justified it all, and is now a thriving young stock broker in the Mountain Metropolis. But strange to tell, he lives alone.

We the class of ' 2. of the aforesaid State. County, City and School, having become exhausted l)y the long years of tiring stud) feel down-hearted because of the realization that we know nothing, and from having endured the scath- ing remarks and gilies of certain memliers of the faculty. We. are, neverthe- less of sound mind. Therefore considering the fact that a a reward for our steadfastness we are to be awarded a diploma, and whereas, said di])loma is aliout to consign us to an uncertain vorldl_ - ex])erience. we do make and de- clare this our last will and testament. 1st. Because of our great love and admiration for tlie Juiiiur Class, we appoint them our lawful e.xecutors. 2nd. We do will and bequeath to said Junior Class our resi)onsil)ilities, hardships, dignity, and privileges which tliey have so long desired. .?rd. We do will and 1)equeath to I ' rof. I)(iv nuni our decrees oi I). V. K. {Doctor of Pony Riders) to be bestowed upon the class oi ' 24 at their graduation. 4th. We do will and bequeath all of our monetary possessions which according to our secretary ' s report, amounts to $12.r()ll in liabilities, to Prof. Greene, who steered us over the rough places in the 8th grade, to be used to rent dress suits for the coming Junior and Senior receptions. 5th. We do will and bequeath our valuable literary gems that we have written from time to time to Prof. Rankin to be distributed among the students next year. 6th. Our little friend Cupid, who has caused so much hap-p-p-hap-hap-i)iness among some members of our class we do will and bequeath to Profs. Hillman and Wilson with the utmost confidence in his safety. 7th. We do will and bequeath all oratorical talent which has l)eeii exploded by certain members of the class to " Cinco " Phillips and " Polk " Brown to be distributed among the students in the form of Hot . ir. Sth. Whereas our youngest brother, the Freshman Class, is of minor age, and will not be of the full age of a Senior for some time, our good will and desire is that Prof. Greer be and is hereby constituted and appointed guardian of said Freshman Class to have and to hold the custody of his behavior and manners during the critical period of Soph-hood and until he shall arrive at the age of a full-fledged Senior. 9th. Whereas, we, the class of ' 23 go from this institution at its greatest period of prosperity and vision, we find in our hearts a purpose to remember with pride and appreciation, the men who made the school possible. They who in 1899, began the work under the most unfavorable conditions, in a one room frame I ' uilding M by 60 feet, old and dilapidated, in a town remote; in size, such as to furnish only .i, students, who were classified in and below the third grades; but today, chiefly through the efforts of these men, behold; a modernly equi|)ped town, on the railroad, at the convergence of State Highways; a school whose lowest grade is the I ' jghlh. with two years of standard Normal College work, with an average of three hundred students per term or nine hundred for the year; four frame and five brick buildings, together with $.?(H).()(l().OU to be spent on improvements in the next two years. To these men, to this school, and to the vision of its future, we will and bequeath our gratitude, our loyalty, and our continuous support. 10th. We do hereby constitute and appoint our trusty friend the Junior Class, as aforesaid, our lawfid executors of all our interests and properties, to execute this, our last w ' ill and testament, according to the time, interest, and meaning of the same, and every part and clause thereof, hereby making and declaring that all other wills and testaments- were made out of our ignorance and that such wills and testaments are null and oid.

On this date our High School career began with much pride and anticipation on our part, for we felt that we were ai)proaching an imimrtant epoch in our scliool life. At the beginning of the Fail Term the h ' reshman Class consisted of fifty-three memliers. We were truly " F " reshman " ' by which, of course, you know we mean green and fresh. It was only natural that we were teased, especially by the insinuating Sophomores, but we took it as a joke. After much jesting we were accorded due respect. Early in the fall we had our first class meeting and elected our officers. From the beginning we entered into our work with true class spirit and loyalty. We sincerely thank our kind and patient teachers for their interest and tireless efforts for our substantial good, and we truly hojie that each one of us may reward their lalior with a record that will reflect great credit upon them. We are on the first round of the ladder which leads to success, and we are working with a fi. ed and rcMilute ])ur])ose to reach the summit.

Our existence as a class has lieen short, and conse(juently our history must be l rief. AltluiUi di there may iml be much to say of our career in this school. vc ex])ect our class to make real history in the years to come. There is to be seen a difference between this class and the other clas.ses of this Institution in that the Normal class is made up of men and women wiio ha e causflu a vision of their life-work and realized the need of ]iroper ])rei aration in order to successfully perform the duties required by the profession of teachinjj. Our class has shown its interest in the work by records made; all have realized the importance of the advantages and the opportunities for advance- ment offered here: all liave taken an active part in the Literary Society work : three (if our members have held the office of Literary Society President dur- ing the short time here. At the l)eginning of the Winter Term we elected Mr. O. J. Harrington President of our class and selected our motto and colors. Our motto. " Aspir- ing to Serve. " is expressive of the desire of each member of the class to be of some real service to our country In- shaping aright the lives of those who mav some day become leaders in the State and nation. .At the beginning of the second half of the Fall Term we numbered un thirteen, but this fact wurried only one member of our class. Miss Katherine Noel, who was greatly relieved when one of our nundier left, thus eliminating the unlucky number. Our enrollment has aried greatl_ with the different terms. Some who have registered in the Nurmal work have remained for a term of only six weeks; others have been with us f(ir a lunger time; twelve for the entire year; forty one in all. The Normal course has lieen offered for a little more than a year and its ra])id growth ])rophesies that the school will more than fulfill its original purpose — " To educate teachers for the mountain districts. " Already students are coming from far l eyond the mountains and from different states. The time is not far distant when the influence of the Appalachian Training School will reach thrcmghout the State and throughout the South. It has been our ])rivilege and honcjr to be among the first of the Normal students, and we hope that the classes of the future will receive an equal benefit and inspiration from attending this school. May they, as we, have the fullest measvire of enjoyment in both tlieir recreation and their work. Such is our history, our prophecy, and our desire for the future of the Appalachian Training School. -G. P. Eggers.
