(OMPANY i i i 1 I I i i I I i i Foreword To perpetuate in our memories the friendship so dear to our hearts, tliat our lives, in the years when blissful youth has been supplanted by toilsome maturity, may be sweetened and our deeds inspired, has been our aim in pre- senting this volume of — I ' Vage Two TO MISS ADA STIREWALT ( 1883 - 1926 ) Talented Musician — Devout Christian — Beloved Teaclier — we reverently de- dicate this the fifth volume of The Par- rot, as an expression of our admiration for, and our appreciation of, her beau- tiful character, genial personality, and inspiring leadership, which, during our contact with her, lead us toward a finer, nobler, more aesthetic life, and shaped 3ur lives and ideals to more worthy pur- poses. SUPERINTENDENT E. D. JOHNSON " All service is equal in the sight of God. " Mr. Johnson, our Superintendent, has been with us only one year, but has won a corner in all of our hearts. He is striving in every way to promote our activities and help us in all we tr y to do. His en- thusiasm and mirth gives us courage in our gloomiest hours.

We pause a moment before we begin our journey anew for a view of the events that have occurred during the fight. It is like standing on top of a mountain after we have reached the summit. The way was rough and there were many obstacles in the way that we felt we could not overcome, but looking at them after we have reached the top it is different. The way no longer looks rough but now it appears smooth, the mountains seem to be only little elevations. Now we realize that it would be a pleasure to have the privilege of traveling the same path — our high school days — again. In the fall of nineteen hundred and twenty-three we gathered at Farm Life School from all sides, some coming from the sunny farms in Rowan and sur- rounding counties, and others from small towns. It is useless to say that we were " green, " because all Freshmen bear that mark. There were eighty of us in the class. When school closed in the spring we were anxious for the sum- mer months to pass so we could return and this time be above the Freshmen. We came storming in the next fall as if we owned the whole place. When Mr. Jones needed any brass he always called on the Sophomores where he was sure to find it. We had lots of good times together that year ' , one of our out- standing occasions being the party we gave in honor of the Seniors. The next fall we came back feeling that we had more work to accomplish as we had reached our Junior year. During the Christmas holidays the members of our class were very much saddened by the death of our class president. Mack Caldwell. We owe much to our adviser. Miss Current, for the wonderful success of the Junior-Senior Banquet which was the most important occasion of the year in the way of social life. We received many compliments at commencement when we presented " Honor Wins. " Now we are Seniors! However we have found out that we do not know as much as we thought we did when we were Sophomores. Some of our members have left us and others have been won to our side since the first year. There have been many changes and improvements made during our stay. The administration building was erected in the summer of twenty-four. The old barn was remodeled and is now the agricultural building. This year we have a new Superintendent — in fact two, however, one has been with us several years — and with him new rules and regulations. At present we have enough faith to say that by spring we will have a gymnasium which will add greatly to our school. It is finished and we bid classmates adieu. —Sue Brumley. Tage Twenty-two m t farrut Predictions of The Class of 1927 Once upon a time there lived a little girl who wished that she might have some of the experiences that happened to her beloved characters in Arabian Night Tales. When she was young she would " make believe " she was the sleep- ing princess, Little Red Riding Hood, or any of the many, many delightful peo- ple in these Fairy Tales. As she grew older she still dreamed of some wonderful unusual experience happening to her. She would sit and di ' eam of the day when she would " grow up " and be a young lady. The dearest of all her belongings was to finish school and be class prophet. Imagine her surprise and joy when she learned that she was to be class prophet. As you have already guessed, I was the Lucky girl and while I appre- ciated the honor given me, I found the task to be much harder than I had an- ticipated. The more I thought the more confused my ideas became, until I began to think my dream would have to go unfulfilled, I went home for the Christmas holidays, arriving late in the afternoon of a rainy, dismal cold day. There is an old lady, Mrs. Castleberry, who lives in a poorly furnished room, on a street, not far from my home. She was extremely wealthy " before the war " as she expresses it, and is one of the most interesting characters that I have ever known. Christmas day dawned bright and clear and everybody seemed filled with the Christmas Spirit. After dinner I fixed a tray and went over to Mrs. Castle- berry ' s, when I got there I found her sitting in a cold cheerless room and she seemed to appreciate my coming to see her more than she did the food and fruit I brought her. We sat and talked. She telling me of the Christmases of long ago when she was the happy mistress of a beautiful home and had her loved ones with her. " They are all gone, " she said, " and all I have left are memories with which to feed my starved soul. " " But, " she added looking at me with her bright eyes, " you have been mighty sweet to me child, and I would like to show my appreciation, but I have no money. I can only give you an old woman ' s blessing — and read the tea leaves for you. " I must have shown my astonishment because she answered my question before I could ask it, saying, " Bring me some tea and hand me my glasses, they are in my Bible. Then after I drink the tea I will read the future for you. " I instantly thought of my class prophecy and asked her if she would help with it. She answered, " Now, I do not know whether I can tell you much that will help, but I will try. " I made the tea, lighted the fire, and was ready to speak when Mrs. Castle- berry said, " Draw your chair up and I will tell you what I see in the tea leaves. " " First, I see your classmate Lucy Margaret Harris winning fame both in A.merica and abroad with her wonderful voice. " " I seem to see a group of people who are bringing joy and gladnessi into many young children ' s hearts. Yes, the vision clears, it is Phillip Deal ' s and Carlton Kinlaw ' s camp for crippled children. Their three able assistants are: Mary Belle Atwell, Martha Albright and Grace Walker. Within the past ten years we have had two outstanding evangelists. Both have done untold good, but I see two of your classmates, Stephen Sloope and Tags Twenty-three LiIrUMlJirTfmSI 1927 YiTTT lllii rrr iiiV Mlli; »MTlT !JlllllljfriT liTS |llli rrT7iTiJJ " l! rT7 LuiiEIllIiJSiiij ' ■ ■■■ ■ - Dowie Stoner, rising to even greater fame. Stephen will become the beloved president of the Moody Bible School and Dowie will step into Billy Sunday ' s place and attain a popularity second to none. He will be assisted in this noble work by Agnes Silliman. Camille Alexander will attend Emerson ' s School of Expression. She will finish her course and have a bright future before her as a lyceum entertainer but will give up her career to become the bride of her dramatic teacher, and will live in Boston. " Mrs. Castleberfy paused here and sat deep in thought. Finally she spoke saying, " Pauline Wallace has a marked talent for artistic work and she will be- come an interior decorator with a suite of offices in the Flat Iron building in New York City. " " Eloise, you will have the pleasure of going, some day, through the plant of the Atlanta Journal as the guest of Mable Davis as she will be the editor-in- chief of that widely read newspaper. " " My leaves now show me John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and one of the leading physicians is Chas. Alexander Brown. " " We have all read about Florence Nightingale and her wonderful work among the sick and now we have others doing the same humane work. Helen Bost and Amelia Litaker will train at Walter Reid Hospital in Washington and will be sent as Medical Missionaries to India. " " You, along with countless hundreds of other girls, mourned the untimely death of Rudolph Valentino. His place on the silver screen will be filled by Bernard Julian. " " Hollywood will greet with open arms Doris Miller, when she too, enters the realm of picture land. " " I am sure that you will want to know something of the future Farm Life School. Nettie Morgan and her husband, a Methodist minister, will be in charge and will devote their time and talents to the education of the youth of Rowan County. " Mrs. Castleberry stopped and I becoming impatient asked her to finish tell- ing me the future of my classmates. She replied, " You have in your class a young man who will be our future Senator. He is tall and large. His oratory will sway the galleries and his in- fluence for good, will be great. His name isn ' t clear to me but I seem to see the name Doy. " " Doy Edwards, " I cried. " Keep quiet child so that I may finish your prophecy for you, " said the dear old lady. She poured some fresh tea and again absorbed in her thoughts. She shud- dered and drew her shawl more closely around her shoulders, then began, " Life isn ' t always sweet. We must have some clouds to make us appreciate the sun- shine. Some bitterness along with the sweetness. Everything goes by contrast, so I cannot keep a little tragedy out of this prophecy. You asked me to tell you what I see and this is what it is. " " A train speeding through the black darkness of night, rain falling in tor- rents. Lightning cutting through the sky. It is one of the worse storms ever jxperienced in this part of the country. With the suddenness of a rifle shot 2omes the crash. The train has been derailed by a loosed cross-tie. Human cries for help are heard. Hubert Parks, Archie Graham, Hope Ritchie, Rebecca Sloope and Margaret Goodnight are among the first to render aid to the injured. They are returning home after having spent several months on a trip around the world with a party of friends. For their heroic work they are each presented with a Carnegie medal. " ' Tage Twenty-four " Sue Brumley will be elected dean in Misses Spence ' s school for girls and as usual Sue will be a leader in her chosen work. " " It is improbable to suppose that all 35 of your classmates will choose public life and my tea leaves show that Ruth Smith and Kathryn Upright will be happy brides soon after graduation. " " One of the boys, Claudius Lipe, will till the soil for his livelihood. While Fred Nesbit will teach agriculture at old Farm Life. " " Lucille Templeton will become happily married to Lord Cecil De ' Armound and will be a charming hostess in London England. " " Beulah Venon Hurley will be buyer for Efird ' s chain consisting of 50 stores. " " Rachel Sloop ' s good luck will be to fall heir to quite a tidy sum of money and in her unselfish way she expects to establish an orphanage in Salisbury. With the help and support of Gladys Trexler, she will care for many orphan chil- dren. " " The county demonstrators do a wonderful work, bringing help and encour- agement to the tired housewife and I find Ether Shuping making a success as a demonstrator. " " Child I wish I could give you your dearest wish, but I can only tell you what is in the tea leaves. They say that you and Loma Sloope will share the chair of Mathematics in Smith College where both of you will send out hun- dreds of girls fitted for life. I hope I have helped you and may God bless you is the prayer of an old woman. " I thanked her and returned to my home to write her prophecies while they were still clear to me. I am sorry that I could not have brought her here and had her to tell them to you in person as she would have them more interesting, but I pass them on to you as best I can. I am sure there are some here who will discredit these predictions and I at one time would have laughe d at them but if you could have been with me and have seen this dear old lady studying her leaves so earnestly you would have known that she honestly believed she was peering into the future and you would have joined me in my hearty " I thank you. " We are sure that no one knows inything positive of the future. However, dear classmates, read your hearts and see if Mrs. Castleberry did not read in her tea leaves your secret desires, and imbitions. Eloise Landers.

" When we have reached the utmost height And cast a glance back o ' er our life Then we will stop at once and say; " I got my start at Old Farm Life. " —Sue Brumley.

The Sophomore Class History In September, 1925, when we first came to the Farm Life School, we were as ignorant of the " ropes " of high school as Freshmen always are. However, we soon began to catch on, and the class had it ' s part in everything the school did. Miss Worsham was our class adviser. Although we had a good time when we were Freshme n, we were glad to take the place of that name, the honorable appellation of " Sophomores, " at the beginning of our second year at the Farm Life School. The Sophomore Class is very fortunate in having Jerry Ritchie for its Presi- dent; also in having Miss Jones and Mr. Karriker for class advisers. We feel that fate has smiled kindly upon us in the past, and we are confident that our future days at the Farm Life School will be both pleasant and helpful. — Carl Hammer, Jr. Tage Thirtjriix Sophomore Roll I BOYS Hubert Earnhardt Herman Blackwelder Ralph Corriher Marks Davis Rodgers Dayvault Frank Deal Ralph Fink Carl Hammer, Jr. David Honbarger Luther Kimball Earl Lipe Everette Lippard Richard Menius Hoyt Miller Roy McCorkle L.

This department was one of the eight similar ones which the State Board of Education has established in various high schools throughout North Carolina. Mrs. T. E. Johnston, State Director of Teacher Training, was largely instrumental in securing this department for this particular location. Twelve girls from the various county high schools enrolled for the first year, namely: Nell Deal Frye, Irene Bostian, Mary Sechler, Elizabeth Tiernan, Louise Cooke, Mabel Potts, Bertie Grubb, Pearle Furr, Nora Earnhardt, Myrtle Barger, and Josephine Safrit. In the following year there were ten girls who entered the department, namely: Margaret Atkins, Temperance Hughes, Lorene Winecoff, Thelma Jones, Ruth Pierce, Hazel Sloope, Elizabeth Norris, Ethel Lippard. Ophenia Shives and Clara Stultz. In 1925-1926 the following students finished the course, namely: Grace Allen, Allene Bickette, Martha Clemence, Lucy Cook, Mary Frick, Vada Kenerly, Annie Marlin, Mary Lou Murdock, Mary Norman, Mabel Owens, Grace Patterson, Mary Smith, Myrtle Walker and Mary White. The course is comprised of Pedagogy, Observation and Practice Teaching, English, History, Arithmetic, Geography, Public School Music, Writing, Drawing, Industrial Arts and Physical Education. Graduates of standard high schools and holders of the Elementary Class B Certificate who successfully passed this work will be issued the Elementary Class A Certificate valid for five years. The three state Normal schools grant approximately two thirds of a year ' s credit for the one year course in Teacher Training which makes it possible to complete the two year normal course at these institutions in forty-eight weeks, and then secure the Primary or Grammar Grade Class B Certificate.

We do ordinary things all along with the rest of you except on Wednesday from 10:30 to 11:33 o ' clock. That time we spend G. N. K.-ing. Nothing against that, we are the G. N. K. Club and we hope to remain an honorary member of such a club as long as we live. Other folks call us the " Reading Club. " The very idea of such a thing puts the ordinary individual to sleep, but that is just their ignorance of what really can be done in a reading club. Our Motto is: " Read, read, and read some more. " It ' s one way of learn- ing and a sure way too if you keep at it. Our club is made of students from every class in school. We are proud of the work we are doing and hope to do more in the future.

But, we must take into consideration that none of the boys had ever played football, and in many cases had never seen a game. Not until then, will we realize that we had a very successful season. We could not hope to win the majority of our games when we were contesting with teams that have played football for several years. However, when we met teams that were as young at the game as we were, we gave a good account of ourselves. In all cases, whether we were winning or losing, we endeavored to play the game fair and square, a name, which after all counts more than anything else.

This additional building will be located just back of the Boys ' dor- mitory, facing the Main street between the Boys dormitory and the Administration building. The dimensions are 100 feet by 60 feet. The gymnasium will be con- venient both to the showers and the athletic field. On the inside, our gymnasium will provide a regulated basketball court, with ample room for spectators. At one end there will be a stage and dressing room for plays and other large public gatherings. The seating capacity of the auditorium will range about eight hundred. The auditorium will be equipped with folding chairs. All of the plans for the building have been made and passed upon by the Board. The funds for carrying out the plans have been appropriated by the Faculty, Student Body, Alumni Association and Board. The only step lacking in the completion of our ideal gymnasium is signing the contract. The next important asset to our athletic possibilities, is the athletic field, which is under construction now. The chain gang will grade the field until it is perfectly level, fitting it for football and baseball. When the present plans have been completed we will have one of the best athletic fields in the state. Our outlook on the individual phases of athletics is very bright as a whole. This past season was our first in football and according to Coach Karriker it was a very successful one. The team next year will be practically the same line-up. With this years experience and the new athletic field F. L. S. is expect- ing to meet the best teams in the state and hold her own. Basketball, especially, seems to have a very bright future — with the han- dicap of outdoor court our teams have held their own. A good indoor court will enable them to do much better in the future. The past season was a very successful one for the boys ' team. With the exception of two all will be back next year. With the indoor court and past experience F. L. S. is expecting great things from the " Big Five. " The 1927 girls ' basketball team was one of the best in this section. Next year will find every member of the team in her place. According to Coach Jones, ihe material is sufficient in quality and quantity to make a future champion team. The baseball team for 1927 will be made up for the most part of new men. We are expecting a very good team this season, but with the loss of most of the old players, it will be weakened, as new ones must be trained. With the new field in view great interest and enthusiasm has been aroused. Looking over our past records in track we find a better one every year. With the present material, our aim is to continue to win the county track meet every year. As in every other phase of athletics, our outlook is very encouraging. During the past five years Farm Life has established an athletic standard, that is recognized by any of the high schools in this section as being one of clean and fair play. The policy of the school is to establish the reputation of gentlemanly men and lady-like women who play the game fairly, squarely and to always show good sportsmanship in victory or defeat.

An occasion which proved to be a very delightful one was the Halloween party given on Friday, October 29, 1927, by the Girls ' Physical Education Club in honor of the Boys ' Football Team and Faculty. The club rooms were very appropriately decorated with things suggestive of HoUoween. Fortune telling, apple hobbling and various other contests, games, etc., were enjoyed during the evening. One very interesting feature was the Grand March in which Miss Simpson and Howard Templeton were awarded the prize for the best costumes. Messrs. Snuggs and Cato were awarded a big stick of candy as a prize for the best original stunt which represented a typical football game of 1930. The party finally wound up with a big marshmallow and winnie roast over two large bonfires out on the campus. BUSY BEE CLUB PICNIC. The B. B. Club and some members of the faculty of Farm Life School met at the Girls ' Dormitory Wednesday afternoon at 3:45 o ' clock to go on a picnic. A truck and cars were used to carry us to Corriher Springs. As soon as we reached the picnic ground, the boys gathered wood and made a fire, then they joined us in playing games. We played until darkness drew near and warned us that it was getting late. We spread the lunch on a table near the fire and everyone enjoyed the picnic supper. The occasion was a success and the reputation of the Busy Bee Club for good cooking and good entertaining was established for all time.
