The door is slowly closing behind me-closing on four years that
once seemed like an eternity, but years that passed so quickly they
seem more like a dream. Yes, a dream is really what it was-a fleeting
recollection of ever-pleasant memories.
The towers where we stood on cold days, the steps on which we
exchanged a cheery greeting with a classmate, the corridors down
which we walked languidly or sped madly depending on the time
left before the final bell-all these are so forceful in my reminiscing.
The football games, the proms, that term paper, the flnal report
card were so very important, but of all the memories I aperceive, the
one that I recall foremost is the one of all the friendships I have made.
For long after the former things have passed away the acquaintances
I have known will always linger as the best part of my H.P.H.S.
Those standards by which I have directed my life were put into
invaluable use through the experiences I gleaned each day. Courage,
honesty, purity, industry, brotherhood, and love-each quality in
its own way has made me realize that each is vital to make a world of
honor. Honor was found in classrooms, in activities, in athletic
games, in social functions, and in our administration. Each part was
a little world in itself uniting to form an indestructible world-a
world based on the principle of honor.
This building-this massive structure is no longer mine. I have
left it to those who have promised as I did to leave it greater than it
was left to meg but in striving to fulfill my pledge I find that I am the
one who has been left greater in mind, body, and character. To
this school I am greatly indebted.
This door has closed-closed, but not locked on four yearsffour
of the best years of my life.

Another year's activities have been recorded. As we leaf through
the pages, we recall those incidents that made the work sometimes a
headache, but most often a joy. During school, after school, and at
night we plowed together striving to culminate the year's events.
In our reminiscing we remember all those who helped to produce
this IQ5O PEMICAN.
Foremost, we sincerely thank Miss Dorothy Hollar, who devoted
so willingly her time, effort, and interests. To her goes much credit
with gratitude from both of us. Especially to Mr. Whitley and mem-
bers of the faculty do we say thank you for the co-operation you
have shown us.
We express our appreciation to each member of the staff. Van
Boyles, Doris Craven, and Pat Johnson so calmly mounted panels
while printing editors Venitia Wilcox and Ann Folger demanded,
"W'ho,s next to this boy? What,s her address?,' Efficient typist
Peggy Clark was always ready to type the articles copy editors Tommie
Lentz and Mary Lou Dillon and sports editor Jack Willis so expertly
wrote. jean Larcom did the art work and Peppy Stamey, associate
editor, answered all calls made of her. Albert Hale and Thomasine
Strother filled in with Hjack-of-all-tradesn ability. Those members
of the business staff, Anne Bain, Johnny Bell, Mary Lib Casey, Betsy
Chernault, Becky Dunn, Sam Gibson, Pat Hackney, Anne Hall,
Billy Hatley, Becky Johnson, Barbara Steele, Max Williams, Jimmy
Woollen, Tommie Lu Young, deserve many thanks from us.
To Andy Pickens, our photographer, on whom depends much of
the success of this annual, we offer our appreciation. Clyde Baxter,
Dick Boyles, Lester Zimmerman, and Buzz Lowe also deserve much
credit for help unselfishly rendered.
Mr. Gordon Brightman, Mr. Jack Clark and Mr. Bob Ihrig of
jahn and Ollier Engraving Company, Mr. Frank Schmenti of Colonna
Studios, and Mr. William Oliver Smith of Edwards and Broughton
Company offered us excellent advice for which we proffer our thanks.
As we close the cover, we realize the Code of Honor of High Point
High School has been put in practice by all who have worked and
co-operated with us. To you we sincerely say thank you.
SUZANNE AND BETTY jo.
