This is a summary of the activities of our school during the term of 1942-43. It is our hope that this volume may prove significant to you in later years, not only because of the many pleasant school associations which it recalls, but also because of the history-making world events which formed the mighty background for our little drama. TWO OAt Indian £eg,end flak ’ We, the Senior Class of ' 43, dedicate the second publication of “The Indian Legend” to the boys of Falmouth High School who are fighting to keep our freedom now and forever—and to those others who are about to join the great struggle which has been forced upon us.

EIGHT _ DAe, Indian £eqend fo- ' i ’OMiy-tAAee - SENIOR CHARACTERISTICS Listen, my children, and you shall hear Of the most dignified seniors of any year. As freshmen we were so carefree and gay, As sophomores we still carried the day; When juniors our work was hard to buck, And as seniors we know graduating isn’t just luck. Who makes up this elegant class? Pause a while and I’ll review them as they pass: This is Joseph Beagle, a promising lad— And the quietest that our class had. Who’s that blonde in the pretty blue dress? That’s Hazel Hanks—as a student, she’s one of the best. And that nice-looking boy with the black wavy hair— If it isn’t Johnny Benton, I do declare! This is Doris Posey and such a smart lass, She takes the place of first in our class. “Come on, Dynamite—shoot that goal!” That’s Nellie Skinner whom you now behold! “I got the transcription” comes the shout, That’s Ralph Chinn, without a doubt. Behold our class President—Marie Verburg, Our annual editor, too—which I’m sure you’ve heard. “Here comes the Navy, bring out the red, white, and blue.” Yes, that’s Harold Odham—some sailor for you! Another of our seniors serving Uncle Sam, Is Silas Hewitt, who certainly is grand. Here comes Leathie Mae Jett so shy and sweet, One of the best little students that you could meet. Now if you’re looking for a stenographer, let me suggest Miss Alma Burton—she’s one of the best. Maurice Barber is very remote and sort of shy, And will certainly be missed at Falmouth High. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, Charlotte Horne could sing her way to heaven. Now here comes Gloria Peregoy, a very studious girl, I’m sure she’ll obtain great things in this world. Wilmer Sullivan is a serious and mannerly lad; He comes second to none but Sir Galahad. As an orator, Clifton Burton sure can “shoot a line.” He’s polite, dresses neatly, and looks swell all the time. This is Florence Payne, a real “prima donna”; To have her as a student, we feel, is quite an honor. Beauty and brains are a rare treat; Caroline Brooks has both; she’s hard to beat. Cecil Burton is this young man’s name— Basketball playing like his is sure to lead to fame. Here is Rosann Lupton, a grand girl; As a homemaker, she’s the best in the world. Roses are red and violets are blue, Sugar is sweet and Frances Wine is, too. The little senior boy that is all the girls’ pet— Why it’s William Snellings, you can just bet! The girl whose eyes shine with that certain light from above, Oh, its Alene Patton—she’s in love. Myrtle Dickinson is so sweet. Now, boys, look— To go out with her, you have to carry a date book. NINE — 3Kt Indian £eqetid $aA ’3x My-tPi £e _ Harry Brown, our colossal “Romeo”, Forever talking to the girls, as you well know. Vera Barber, we are well aware, Is a whiz when it comes to arranging hair. Katherine Patton is a right “fetching gal”, At dear old Falmouth she was everyone’s pal. Howard Ward is popular, with a complexion of peaches and cream, As far as drawing is concerned, he’s on the beam! Mary Nash always finds something to make her smile. Just keep it up—that’s what makes life worthwhile. One of the new students which “we all sho do lak”, Is John Meredith, better known as Jack. “Bounce me, mama, with a solid beat”, That’s our “Soldierette” leader, Hazel Skinner, and is she sweet. Alma Ely’s blush is as Southern as pancakes— Everyone likes her ’cause she’s got what it takes. This charming girl is Mildred Hemp, you see, Her technique as a saleswoman is a mystery to me. Frances Snellings is jolly and a swell student too, She will be remembered as the best all-’round girl we know. The tall blue-eyed boy is Elmer Carneal, He sure is nice, that we all feel. The quiet girl with eyes so blue and cheeks so rosy, That, my friends, is Katheryn Posey. It won’t be long before blue birds will sing, Pauline Atkins has a diamond ring. Adrian Hamm is quite an artist, they say. Stick to it and, who knows, you may be famous some day. Marian Williams is a friendly lass; That’s not a personality test that she couldn’t pass. If Marie Truslow’s eyes have that wicked gleam; Don’t be scared, she’s not as bad as she might seem. This is Francis Brown and he sings like a bird; When you hear him you’ll admit he’s the best you’ve heard. To dance is Dan Moore’s delight, His partners are plentiful for his methods are right. Edna Smith is the most cheerful girl that we’s seen. Her hair is more beautiful than one could ever dream. Esther Haynes has hosts of friends— The list in her autograph book never ends. Joseph Jett sure can knock a baseball far away; He’ll probably be in the leagues some day. Our lovely historian is Mabel Hanks—- Up with the highest is where she ranks. Norman Clark is going to the army, they say; It won’t be long before he’ll be home, we pray. Who’s the girl with the pretty brown eyes? Thelma Bowling, who never says “can’t” but always tries. With that, this little poem ends—- But wait before you go, my friends— If you see a girl whose hair is unruly, That, you may be sure, is yours truly.

We are exceedingly happy to have reached this goal, our first real step toward a great success. We wish to express our thanks to the faculty, our parents, and our many friends for all they have done for us, for without the kindness and patience they have shown us, we would not be here tonight proclaiming this final purpose. Each member of the class is proud to be here tonight, having attained this honorable success. However, saying good-bye to our school days and classmates is not a cheerful task. We will always have this day to re¬ member and to look back upon with both joy and sorrow. It is a privilege and a pleasure to extend to you a most sincere welcome to this program— ' the Class Night of the 1943 Seniors. Leathie Mae Jett. TWENTY-FOUR _ —JAt Indian £,eqe,nd J Qa ' ity.-tfikez - VALEDICTORY ’43 Parents, Members of the Faculty, Friends, and Classmates: We, the Class of ’43, are meeting tonight for our last time to bid you farewell. It is my privilege and honor to bring this message to you. We have spent many happy days within this building where we have assembled countless times. We have had our days of happiness and of sor¬ row; we have had our trials and rewards together. Our teachers have given us words of advice about our work, encouraged us when we were down¬ hearted ,and have been patient with us at all times. We will always retain these memories with gladness but a certain sorrow because we can never go back to them. Some of our classmates have already been called to the service of our country and cannot be here tonight. They have begun the great adven¬ ture which we are about to undertake— " The Adventure of Life.” It is our great misfortune that we must start in a world of war, strife, and un¬ happiness; but we cannot let that hold us back. There must be no linger¬ ing along the way, no shirking of responsibility, no excuses. We must prove the value of the instruction we have received and become workers tor the good of humanity. Our diploma will be of little use to us unless we can look ahead with our chins high, determination in our eyes, and courage in our hearts. We will have to make our own choices now—not wait for some one to do it for us —because the older generations are depending upon us to bring back, not the same, but a better world, one in which we can live, love, and worship as we please. That is our duty and there are a number of ways in which we can fulfill it: (1) Some of us will enter the Armed services. (2) Some will enter the business world. (3) Others will enter the field of Medicine. (4) A few of us will go on to higher education in order to be able to understand and help others to understand the prob¬ lems of the coming peace. (5) And above all, we must all be loyal and patriotic citizens of this great country of ours. This is a difficult task we have before us and we realize it fully; how¬ ever, thanks to the patience of our teachers, the sacrifices of our parents, and the cooperation of our friends, we feel sure that we can succeed. Members of the faculty, we wish to extend to you our thanks and ap¬ preciation for all you have done, and we hope that our achievements in later years will prove a gratifying reward for your many efforts in our behalf. To our parents, we wish to express our love and appreciation for their hard work in sending us to school and our hope that they will never have cause to be disappointed in us. And now, friends and classmates, the time has come to say goodby to you, to our dear school, and to our happy past. Although the hour is dark and the future may appear forbidding, I feel sure that each of us can truly say in the words of William Ernest Henley’s great poem “Invictus”: “It matters not how straight the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate; I am the Captain of my soul.” Doris Posey.

OUR CLASS HISTORY History for the last four years has been, for us, a required subject and some of us have enjoyed it while some of us have not. However, class¬ mates, the history that I am about to read—our class history—is made up of memories that each of us will cherish, no matter where we go or what we do. We entered high school in 1939 as one of the largest freshman classes in the history of Falmouth High School. Because of the size of our class, we were divided into two groups. We spent this first year getting acquaint¬ ed with each other, our teachers, and our new environment. We returned to school the next year as sophomores. Although we did not number as many as in the previous year, we were still a large group. We had as our home room teacher, Miss Yeager, who was new to the ways of Falmouth. We enjoyed her one year with us very much. During this year we lost our principal, Mr. Bolton, who was one of our dearest friends and advisors. At the beginning of our junior year we had a new principal, Mr. Nicholls, with whom we were soon well acquainted. We were also begin¬ ning to be recognized as an up-and-coming class. Our boys and girls were on the basketball team; and we took part in the operetta, “In An Old Kentucky Garden”. We also worked very hard during the year in order to raise the necessary money to enable us to entertain the seniors at the annual junior-senior banquet and dance. We entered the senior class with a much smaller number than original¬ ly, just 52 of us, and during the year we lost several of our boys to Uncle bam. Because of the tragic situation existing in the world and because of our great need to conserve, we did not carry on many activities. Al¬ though we are not graduating with the usual elaborate exercises, we are just as proud and happy to graduate as were any of the classes which preceded us. After tonight, classmates, each of us will go out into a world entirely new to us, a war-torn world, filled with turmoil and strife. May each of us, with the help of God, be led to do the right things for ourselves and for our loved ones. Mabel Hanks TWENTY-EIGHT __ OJt le Indian £eg nd f 9:oAty,-tPi ' iee - PROPHECY Let us pause for a moment, lower the lights, and gaze into the future as revealed in our magic crystal ball. What do we see? Where are the members of the Class of ’43 Along what strange paths do they wander? An image appears before us; it brightens and grows distinct. Can it be —yes, it is Elmer Carneal! There he is on his great black horse “Mid¬ night”; just as he appeared in his latest western success, “Carneal’s Last Ride.” The scene changes. We see an artist before his easel. It is none other than Adrian Hamm, now a leading painter of the Twentieth Century. This image fades and is replaced by a vision of a thriving little city set among rolling hills and pleasant dales. Before us appears a sign which reads “Welcome to Middletown, U. S. A., the Garden Spot of the Uni¬ verse.” On the outskirts of the town there is located an elaborate “Brown’s Auto Court” operated by Harry Brown and his charming bride, the former Agnes Verburg. Just within the city limits we see “Ye Olde U. S. O. Clubbe.” On the steps there are a number of familiar figures. There is Rosann Lu.pton, who serves as a very capable hostess for the “Clubbe”. Beside her is her effic¬ ient boss, Maurice Barber, “Clubbe” director. They seem to be bidding farewell to two distinguished officers dripping with medals and gold braid. They are none other than Harold Odham, Admiral of the Pacific Fleet, and Lt. General Norman H. Clark. Leaving this pleasant picture the Crystal Ball now seems to take us on a tour of the business section of Middletown. First we see “The Dew Drop Inn” a cozy tea room operated by Esther Haynes. Just across the street is the “Snappie School of Photography” under the direction of our good friend, Frances Snellings. Nestled next to the school we find “The Lotta Bull Beauty Shop.” We read the sign before it which informs us that the shop is managed by Clifton Burton who specializes in the manipulation of men’s hair. Within the same block we find Paul Leslie’s Dress Shoppe, the star attraction of which is his graceful model, Katheryn Posey. Just leaving a little chapel across the way, there appears a gay wedding party. The groom strongly resembles our old friend Cecil Burton, while his blushing bride looks suspiciously like Alma Burton. Slowly Middletown grows misty and indistinct. It is replaced by spires of New York’s magic skyline. The Crystal Ball now gives us a series of scenes from the lives of our friends whn are now living in this Metropolis. First, we see Edna Smith just stepping off the boat after visiting King Upperstring now in exile in Shangri La. Second, we see a room in Nellie Skinner’s luxurious penthouse on Park Avenue. It is cluttered with nota¬ bles, among them the President of the United States, Kenneth Cox, trailed by his devoted secretary, Leathie Mae Jett. Next we get a quick view of the Streamline Beauty Club for Reducing under the management of Gloria Peregoy. Here we see Hazel Hanks taking some of those famous exercises which won for her the title of “Miss Streamline of 1953.” In a downtown shopping district we find two thriving business estab¬ lishments: Madame Fifi’s Classical Shoppe of Drapery, operated by Hazel Skinner, Alene Patton and Mary Nash; and “The Fizzle-Wizzle Beauty Salon,” owned and managed by Katherine Patton and Vera Barber. Next, a great broadcasting studio flashes before our eyes , and we are delighted to see Johnnie Benton who has now taken over Bill Stern’s “Highlights from the Sports News of the Day.” In a nearby studio we find Dan Moore TWENTY-NINE - 3he Indian ftoA ; 3ol ty-thiee _ yodelling a Western Ballad and accompanying himself on the guitar. Out in Yankee Stadium we find Joseph Jett now starring with the “Yanks” as the greatest player of the year. And now New York disappears from view, and we see the broad acres of the sheep ranch operated in Wyoming by Joseph Beagle and Francis Brown. This is followed by a scene showing Marion Williams on the green lawn of her southern mansion relaxing after writing her recent best-seller, “How to Woo and Win a Sailor.” Nearby we see the ivy-covered cottage in which Mabel Hanks is now residing, following her hilarious honeymo on with Ensign “Rabbit” Sulli¬ van. We next see before us the “Art Magazine of America”. Turning its pages, we find several items of interest. It seems that Thelma Bowling, now a famous sculptor, is devoting her life to remodeling the Mt. Rush- more Memorial statue of George Washington. We are pleased to learn, too, that William Snellings is now editor for “The Little King”; which was a famous comic strip even back in 1943. This vision is replaced by another, featuring a television radio. On its screen we see Charlotte Horne, who has just made her debut as the most popular singer in the Metropolitan Opera. A twist of the wrist brings us a new scene, this time showing Mildred Hemp, featured “songstress” at the famous King’s Tavern near Fredericksburg, Va. We dial another sta¬ tion and hear the dulcet voice of Ardena Callahan. Miss Callahan seems to be reviewing her new book “Life With Sixteen Husbands.” But, wait, they are interrupting the program for a news flash! The state legislature announces that Senator Howard Ward is putting through a bill that will make him leader of the Boy Scouts of America. Ah! The ball grows misty, then clearer. Yes, it is quite clear again. Once more, grand old New York appears. A harried figure paces an elab¬ orate office. It is the business tycoon, Doris Posey, who seems to be having quite a time with her stock market as it is first up and then down. Now we catch a glimpse of the shores of a far-away country. Yes, it is all clear now! We see France; we move inland; and what do you think appears atop the Eiffel Tower in Paris? It is that center of epicurian de¬ light, the quick lunch room operated by Marie Truslow and Alma Ely. We now seem to be traveling many miles. At last the crystal clouds reveal a placid beach in sunny California where we see Marie Verburg, now a famous physical education instructor drilling her pupils on the art of swimming. Leaving this invigorating scene, we are next carried to Baltimore, Md., where we see a wee figure dressed in white moving up and down the corridors of Johns Hopkins Hospital. It is Florence Payne, who has fol¬ lowed her profession as a nurse. Unfortunately, this scene changes too quickly as time seems to be catching up with us, and here we are back in our own county, Stafford. What is this, the latest edition of the Free-Lance Star? The headlines on the front page declare that Silas Hewitt has just been named America’s outstanding farmer of the year. The paper then opens to the Society Sec¬ tion, and we read “Mr. and Mrs. Wellington Berry announce the marriage of their daughter, June Constance to Jack Meredith. The happy pair will reside in nearby Berea Terrace, where the bridgegroom operates “Joe’s Place.” THIRTY _ OJke, Indian £eq nd ’Owdy-tPikee -- This scene now fades into obscurity, and is replaced by a scene in a small anteroom in the Stafford Court house. A will is being read and as we watch the speaker announces that Pauline Atkins has inherited a jeep from her ex-husband. The ball grows dark. Now it is filed with confusion. Suddenly we are at a ball game where the White Oak All-Star Team managed by Wilmer Sullivan is being soundly beaten by the “Yanks”, starring Joe Jett. Time passes swiftly and we are back on familiar ground. There appears a little white cottage amid a profusion of flowers. There we see a young mother with two lovely children. It is none other than Frances Wine. As we look across the road, there is dear old Falmouth. Coming out of the door is Myrtle Dickenson secretary to the principal. It is quite a school now, but we have the feeling that we are back home again. “Mid pleasures and palaces Tho’ we may roam, Be it ever so humble There’s no place like home.” —Ralph Chinn.

This proram was designed to impress upon American schools and American school-children the vital part which they can play in the nation’s war effort. Here at Falmouth we found that there were many contributions which we could make. Most of us could and did buy war bonds and stamps. Others worked with their hands repairing athletic equipment and farm machinery, or building model aeroplanes to be used by the government. Many of our girls learned how to preserve foods and how to plan nutri¬ tious meals in spite of wartime food restrictions. Th° entire student body cooperated enthusiastically in the physical fitness routines advocated by our government to keep up strong and healthy. On every side both students and faculty found new opportunities for service. Red Cross work, first aid, salvage activities, and civilian defense projects offered many varied mediums for worthwhile effort. In the classrooms we attempted to learn more about our own heritage of freedom, as well as to learn more about our brave allies to whom we are bound by the ties of a common resolve. In our more advanced classes, we studied the social, political, and economic factors which combined to produce this great conflict, and we devoted considerable thought to the kind of world we want to live in when the victory is won. As a record of all these varied activities, we prepared a scrapbook giving as many facts and figures about our war work as we could. This scrapbook was entered in a division contest in which schools in King George and Stafford Counties competed. Here it received first prize and was sent on to a statewide contest. The joy and pride felt by every Fal¬ mouth student and teacher on hearing that our scrapbook was named first in the entire state of Virginia can be imagined. Surely this is the true spirit of democracy; this is the path to victory! All of us working together for the common cause—soldiers, statesmen, schoolchildren! From the least to the greatest—Americans all! FORTY-SEVEN JAt 9ndLan £eqetid ’9x Aly,-th i e. AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING CLUB Sponsor_A. C.
