THE 1961 FIELDCREST

FIELDALE HIGH SCHOOL
"NOW" NEVER COMES BACK
"Like the snow falls in the river,
A moment white--then melts forever."
- - -Robert Burns
Do we ever think about the value of the
present? Do we realize that all the joys as
well as the frustrations of this school year
will soon be gone forever? Now we have
themg now we don't. Only memories remain.
In all the one hundred and eighty days of
our school year, we are given opportunities
to build toward a more prosperous future.
Each day adds new memories, both good and
In our class es, we gain knowledge of use-
ful things for later life. Now is the time to
reach out and grasp this opportunity that is
In our homerooms, we find friends to
enjoy during our school life. In our faculty
and administration, we find friends who are
willing to guide and help us become more
able to meet our responsibilities in the
In our organizations, we learn to get
along with people, to lead, and to follow. We
choose our own particular clubs according
to our special interests. Now is the time to
enjoy, to find satisfaction in whatever we do.
In our sports a ctiv iti e s , we develop
physically. Even more importantis the fact
that we develop mentally. Good sportsman-
ship and loyalty to the team, whether we win
or lose, are lessons we learn now.
Many new faces will replace those whom
we now know so vividly. Many activities we
accomplished with such care will be re-
placed with a new pride. In the future we
shall engage in similar pursuits, but they
will never be the same. New classes, new
students, new subjects, and new graduates
come with every new school year.
This year's FI E L D C R E S T presents
NOW to you. This school year will never
come back, but as we look through this book
tomorrow, next year, or twenty years hence,
NOW can come- back in our memories and
Early morning sees a pageant of passing feet making their way into school to begin the day's studies.
Hearty appetites and jovial conversation take over during lunch hour in the cafeteria.

WE DEDICATE "NOW" TO YOU
MR. EDDIE RAKES
To every Senior Class, there is someone who, through his
example and service to Fieldale High School, becomes a part of
the students' lives. The class of 1961 has found that person to
be Mr. Eddie Rakes, coach of the basketball team, assistant
principal of the high school, acting principal of the elementary
school, former teacher of many of us, and friend to all of us.
To you, Mr. Rakes, we dedicate the FIELDCREST. Because
of your tremendous influence, We feel that a portion of the life
which you now exemplify will be an inspiration to us forever.
Mr. Rakes is surrounded by some of his "little ones" at the elementary school.
ADMINISTRATION AND STAFF ARE GUIDING FORCE
Subtly shaping the course of our high
school years are twenty - four men and
women who make up our faculty. Along
with them, from the administrative stand-
point, are the principal, assistant principal,
director of instruction, the visiting teacher,
and the entire School Board. Other members
of the school staff are the school secretary,
the cafeteria ladies, five bus drivers, a
janitress, anda fireman. All these working
together and mindful of the significance of
NOW are truly the force which gradually
guides us toward a more satisfying life.
Faced with the task of attempting to do
something constructive for every student' in
a system that tries to teach a wide variety
of subject matter to all the students, our
faculty constantly tries to prepare them-
selves to meet this tremendous challenge.
Four of our teachers have earned Master's
Degrees and one is working on her Doctorate.
Doing bus duty, Miss Knight diligently sees
that the very last student is safely on the bus.
Many attend Hlmmer schools, extension
classes, and professional conferences.
An administrative faculty meeting is
held on the second Monday of every month
to work out difficulties that arise in the
normal routine of each school day. On the
third and fourth Mondays of each month,
group professional faculty meetings are held
during which specific phases of the school
program are considered and discussed in
an effort to improve the situation.
Besides their regular classroom duties,
teachers find themselves with many other
duties in the school and community. Most
teachers are sponsors of one or more of
the school clubs, twelve sponsor home-
rooms, and all take their turns at bus and
hall duty and selling tickets at the ball
games. Many aid in community projects and
several are Sunday School teachers in their
chosen churches. '
"Don't stand in the hall" are familiar words
fromthe hall duty teacher, Mrs. Jean Fuller.

The Academic program includes those
courses essential as preparation for pur-
suing work in a college. College entrance
requirements Vary at different institutions.
Each student must determine as soon as
possible what college he expects to attend
so that his high school courses will meet
Required courses for the Academic
program are: five units in English, two in
hold, and Joretta Nester display their projects from
lab science, two in mathematics, one in U.
S. history, one in government, one in world
history, andthree years of health and physi-

CURRICULUM CDFFERS FGRTY-SIX VARIOUS COURSES
Jonathan Swift oncewrote, "When time is
once passed, there is no recalling it." So it
'is in relation to the opportunities that are
ours each year of our school life. How we
use these years of ,opportunities will have a
profound significance on our lives, for every
hour lost now in worth-while endeavor is
A part of the philosophy of Fieldale High
School is that every young person should have
the opportunity to participate in an education-
al program which will better fit him for life
in a complex society. The curriculum of
our school is organized in such a way as to
provide an opportunity for adequate prepa-
ration of those students who plan to enter
college and those students who plan im-
mediately to enter the world of work.
The courses are divided into three
specific programs: Academic, Vocational,
and General. After careful consideration of
these programs by the student, in co-oper-
ation with the guidance director, school
administrators, and with parental under-
standing and consent, a specific program is
selected by the student. This program is
followed through the four years of high school,
changes may be made with approval of the
school authorities and the student's parents.
The school is fully accredited by the
Virginia State Department of Education and
the Southern I Association of Colleges and
Secondary Schools. It isapart of the twelve-
year school system. K '
A total of 46 various courses are offered,
many of which are required and others are
electives. The courses offered are as fol-
lows: five in English and grammar, five in
mathematics including arithmetic 8, algebra
I and II, plane geometry, and solid geometry-
trigonometry, three in science including
science 8, biology, and chemistry, five in
social studies' including history 8, .world
geography, world history, U. S. history, and
American government, six in business in-
cluding general business, typing I and II,
shorthand I and H, and bookkeeping, four in
home economics including home economics

including Latin I and 11 and Spanish I and II,
four in industrial arts including gene ral shop,
machine woodwork, mechanical drawing, and

three years of health and physical education,
and one each of speech, distributive edu-
cation and journalism.

The guidance program, as organized in
our school, helps the student select his
courses and activities in high school, adjust
properly to school situations, and plan in-

inthe guidance office giving such information
concerning each student as his attendance,
health, scholarship, work habits, participa -

aptitudes, interest, and abilities, work ex-
perience and vocational preference.
Mrs. Ross, our guidance director, ad-
ministers standard tests and interprets the
results to both the student and parent. She
obtains the most recent information avail-
able on a variety of occupations and collects
the latest college and other specialized
school catalogues. She helps students in
using these catalogues and in deciding upon
colleges and vocations. She makes known to
the students scholarship and other student

FIELDALE. HIGH ENROLLS 445 STUDENTS
In September, four hundred and forty-
five s t u d e nt s poured into the halls and
classrooms of Fieldale High to begin the
new s ch 001 y e a r . This was the largest
enrollment that Fieldale had ever had in
the history of the school.
The students came -not only from Fiel-
dale but from many communities around,
which include Pleasant Grove, Villa Heights,
Koehler, and Collinsville . Most of the
students were t r a n s p o r t e d to school by
bus, however, many of them drove their
own cars or walked.
As s c h o ol began, there was a feeling
of excitement. Inthe back of each student's
mind, there was an aw a r e n e s s that this
was the time! NOW was the hour! Four
hundred and forty-five eager young people
--eager because this was the year of grad-
uationg this was the year that the junior
was in sight of his goal, the sophomore
was an upperclassmang the freshman was
just beginning his climb with anticipation,
and the eighth g r ade r had gotten to high
school at last.
The personality of the school was char-
acterized by an u nu s ual friendliness, an
enthusiastic school spirit, and a general
feeling of well-being. Fieldale High was a
school the students were proud of.
Now, as we look at the familiar faces of
those who made up the personality of our
school, we are a little sad in knowing that
the year is gone but happy in remembering
that it was a good one.
Below, students are shown leaving the building during a fire drill. The building is usually evacuated
in an orderly manner in less than a minute and a half. -

ORGANIZATIONS REPRESENT STUDENT INTERESTS
I At Fieldale High there are atotal of
sixteen organizations or clubs. Students
may join as many as two different ones,
and most students belong to at least one.
The organizations meet every other Wed-
nesday. On these days, the schedule is
divided into seven periods, making time
for an activity period of forty minutes.
Certain organizations are closely
connected with specific classes in order
to further the work done in class. Some
of these are Future Business Leaders of
America, Distributive Education, Future
Homemakers of A m e r i c a , Spanish, and
Many organizations are chiefly service
clubs for the betterment of the school or
community, such as, Student Co-operative
Association, L i b r a r y , Firefighters, and
All organizations off e r opportunities

This year, the Student Co-operative
Association makes an award to the "Club
ofthe Month." Here, Marie Stegall,
for tne development of le a d e r s h ip , ini-
ti a t i v e , and dependability. All provide
opportunities for students to make friends
and to learn to get alo ng w ith people.
Each organization is r e s p o n sible for
displaying a bu 1 l e t i n board in the main
hall for a week and for giving one assem-
bly program during the year.
In the club period, programs are given
and projects are initiated. All meetings
are conducted according to parliamentary
procedure. In order to justify its exist-
ence, a club must be organized with defi-
nite objectives which will p r ov i de edu-
cational experiences for those students
who participate in its activities. An eval-
uation of each organization and its activities
is made at the end of each year. In order
to continue the next year, the club's activi-
ties must prove to be worthwhile.
Ma ri e Lawrence, Eugenia Barnes, David
Jones, and Ronnie Baldwin meet to dis-
cuss the recipient of the award.

The Student Co-ope rative Association was
the strongest and most active organization
in the school.
One person from each homeroom and
organization was elected to the council on
the ba s i s of leadership, scholarship, and
integrity. Each member, when elected to
represent his organization or homeroom,
took upon himself the responsibility to do
the best of his ability to make the school
a better place to attend.
The S. C. A. sponsored the White Christ-
mas Cheer. The students marched on stage
and placed their c 0 nt r i butio n under the
Christmas tree. Later the gifts were car-
ried to the Christmas Cheer Headquarters
The organization had a suggestion box
in the lib r a ry and encouraged the entire
student body to make suggestions for im-
proving the school.
The S. C. A. was in charge of the Lost
and Found Department. Whenever an article
was lost, found , and put in the Lost and
Found Locker, the loser could obtain his
article by paying a small fee to the S. C. A.

In November word was received that the
Columbia Scholastic P r e s s Association
had given a First Place Award to the
FIELDCREST. This gave the staff's mor-
ale an extra boost, especially those old
members who had worked on last yea.r's
book. The 1959 boo k also won a First
Place Award last spring at the Southern
Interscholastic Press Association Conven-
tion held at Washington and Lee University.
Staff meetings were held on Wednesday
nights. Even though plans and sections had
been well organized, the members had to
meet practically every nightfrom the first
through the fifteenth of February franti-
cally trying to beat the deadline.
The book was d iv i d e d into sections.
Members were responsible for complete
s e c t i o n s - - f o r laying out the sections,
identifying pi c t u r e s , writing copy, and
preparing the dummy. Individual pictures
in N ov e m b e r . The staff photographers
were busy all through the year getting the
pictures of current happenings.
The Business Manager and his staff
worked from February until May selling
subscriptions. Three hundred and twenty-
five copies were sold, the most that has
ever been sold. Ads were sold early in
the fall to the local merchants and to those
surrounding communities, making a total
of thirty- six pages. This number topped
all previous records.
The staff is grateful to the faculty and
students for the fine co-operation given
them in all their e f f o r t s , without which
their task would have been an unpleasant
one. If this FIE LDCREST serves as a
record of the 1960-61 s c h o ol y e a r and
brings back happy m e m o r i e s, then we
will feel a sense of satisfaction in knowing
that we have accomplished our intentions.

FUTURE HOMEMAKERS ADOPT "LITTLE SISTERS"
"Toward New Horizons" is the motto of the
Future Homemakers of A m e ri c a . The thirty
girls in this chapter learned to work together
and co-operate with each other by actually put-
ting into practice what they learned.
One of the main p r oj e c t s was the adoption
of two "Little Sisters" fr om the elementary
school. At various times in the year, they
gave the "little sisters" gifts or had a party
in their honor. Barbara Wyatt was very active
in helping carry out the "Little Sister" project.
As a part of National Future Homemakers of
America Week, the club held a Miss F. H. A.
contest, served favors to the t e a c h e r s , and
publicized F. H. A. Week through the bulletin
board and by giving an assembly program.
The main money-raising project of the club
for the year was the selling of key chains. Nancy
Tuttle, selling eighty chains, topped everybody
else in key- chain sales.

POPULAR MUSIC STUDY CLUB HAS 130 MEMBERS
The fact that the Mu s i c Study Club was
composed of one hundred and thirty mem-
bers of the student body illustrated the in-
terest and enthusiasm in music displayed by
students of the school.
This organization, the largest in the school,
met twice each month in an e nde avor to
create an appreciation and understanding of
the various types of music.
The p r o g r a m s were given by volunteer
members of the group. During one clubper-
iod, Lyn Joyce gave a very interesting ex-
planation of the m od e r n period of music.
Ronnie Setliff set the scene for the Christmas
spirit and the c ar o l s that are sung at this
season of the year. During another club

to students who had the desire and ability to
participate in plays. The students learned
skills of acting which helped them perform
well before audiences.

ABOUT 100 STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN SPORTS
A part of NOW has ticked away in moments
of suspense at sports activities. From
November to February , approximately
seventy-five students p a r t i c ip a t e d in our
basketball team. With almost daily practice,
the teams exercised to keep in good physical
condition. Basic skills in shooting, perfection
of passing for teamwork, and various plays
were continuously practiced. Physical stami-
na and strength were some of the rewards of
Of more importance, members of the team
learned to work together. Games were not
won by one player or by five individual
players, but by the complete team through
t e a mw o r k and unselfishnessf This team-
work learned will be ap plie d in later life
in various occupations.
From March to May, the baseball team of
approximately thirty boys p r a c t i c e d with
earnestness in hopes of e nt e r i n g the Dis-
trict Championship. Through this partici-
pation, other physical skills were developed,
but the basic facts of t e amw o r k and hard
work still applied.

the old and new students to F. H. S.
As the doors of Fieldale High School opened
in September for another season, our principal,
Mr. Iler, and student council president, Randy
Joyce, greeted the student body and faculty with
words of welcome.
This year our enrollment was increased by a
large number of eighth graders who took part
in many activities of our school life.
With a p r o m i s i n g and capable faculty, we
began to live this school year in hopes of gain-
ing knowledge not only from books but also from
many other experiences. We looked forward to

old friendships and making aquaintances with

We have recorded in this section outstanding
events of the year. It was felt that recognition
for achievement should be given to whom it was
due. Fieldale High School certainly always has
its just share of beauty, talent, personality, and
scholarship. Therefore, the FIELDCREST inthis
section has honored those who received awards,

Under the pretense of misb ehavior in
assembly, seventeen members from the jun-
ior and senior classes were ordered by Mr.
Iler to march upon the stage where they were
surprised to learn that they had been accepted
as new Beta members. This shock was fol-
lowed by an "air raid command" on the fol-
lowing Friday and Monday after assembly.
This part of the humorous initiation required
the new members to solemnly drop their books
and jump into burlap sacks. On these days,
oddly dressed characters appeared in the halls
of F. H. S. The girls wore similated freckles,
p ig - t ails , and were attired in knee-length
dresses. Overalls, straw hats, and tennis
shoes without socks completed the outfits for
the boys. The initiation was most enjoyable
for the entire student body.
As a continuation of the fun, the formal
initiations were held in the Home Economics
Department. Among the tasks they had to
perform were the obstacle course, interro-
gation, and the three-legged race. The mis-
chievous new members were forced to go
through the "belt line" to meet the horror of

supplied by the s chool chorus. After the
pageant, the chorus hummed the stanzas of
"Silent Night" as the stud e nt s and faculty
filed up on the stage and placed their gifts
under the Christmas tree.
Christmas spirit at Fi e ld al e High was
certainly evident that day. This program ex-
emplified the co- operative and generous spirit
of F. H. S. students.

"Strange Victory," by Evelyn Neuenberg,
was the title of the one-act play presented in
the contest. At right, Janice Joyce rehearses
her lines for Gale Walker and Ronnie Setliff.
Among the five forensic events that Fieldale High
entered in the Virginia High School League were
prose reading, poetry, spelling, debating, public
speaking, and one-act play. In all these contests,
both individual representatives and member schools
were required to observe all rules and regulations.
The debating contest was held at William Byrd
High School, Vinton, on April 55 the one-act play
at Martinsville High School, Martinsville, on March
103 and all others were held at Roanoke College
on April 8.
The prose and poetry readers Were required to
read one prepared s e le c t io n and one selection
chosen by the judges.
Public speaking contestants gave an original
speech of five to ten minutes in length which had
never been p r e s e nt e d in other contests. This
speech had to be a subject of interest to the speaker
and his audience.

The traditional Junior-Senior Banquet and
Prom, a much-looked-forward-to event, was
held at the Lynwood Club, on May 6. By far,
it was the most gala function of the year.
All through the evening, the students gave
no thought to the future. NOW was the hour,
and there would never be another like it. For
the seniors, it was their final prom as high
school students .

welcome to the senior class as Barbara Chard, Larry
Steele, and Susie Merriman listen.

JUNIOR CLASS PRESENTS "DRUMS OF DEATH"
Before the p e r f o r rn a n c e of "Drums of Death,"
Irene H e d ge c 0 c k , make-up artist, gives the final
touch to Wanda Warden.
Under the expert guidance of Miss Knight, the
students who were inte r e s t e d in drama were
able to display their talents during the year.
The junior play, "Drums of Death," was
presented on November 10. It was a mystery
sprinkled with comedy and drew a large crowd.
Membe rs of the cast were: Bill Morton,
Mike Fulcher, J. R. May, Mary Jane Lawless,
Marie Stegall, D o n na C la r k , Wanda Warden,
Judy Simons, Selda Daniels, and Louis Eanes.
Mary Ann Gusler was a s s is t ant director,
Irene Hedgecock, make-up artist, and Jimmy
Crawford, sound effects man.
The senior play had not been chosen when the
FIELDCREST went to the publisher. However,
the members of the class and Miss Knight were
making plans to present the play on April 28.
Jerry Purcell, Ro nnie Setliff, and Mack Arnold Donna Clark, Judy Simons, and Bill Morton practice
study the play books to de c ide on the play they like their parts in "Drums of Death."
During rehearsal, Louis Eanes very realistically
attempts to stab Marie Stegall.

Now, the last of our one-hundred and eighty
days are gone. We have attended our last class,
our books are gathered up, and our lockers are
cle aned . What we have made of the year can
nev e r be changed.
On graduation night and with a special kind
of pride, we marched into the auditorium to be
seated with our classmates for the last time.
To the accompaniment of the band, we sang our
Alma Mater, "The White and the Blue." With
heads held high, we walked across the stage to
receive our diploma. Our ultimate goal had
Then, for one fleeting moment through our
mind's eye, We stole a backward glance. A
sadness engulfed us, for we suddenly realized
that this was the end of our high school days.
The future is ours, but we shall not forget to
look back many times, remembering.
Mike Merriman, Mary Jane Pickup, Gale Walker, and
Joy Smith, these are their final moments of high school.

The prosperity and individual freedoms we enjoy today are har d -
earned gifts from our forefathers and must never be taken for granted.
Each new generation must stand on its own feet and preserve th
freedoms. The freedoms we enjoy through the American Way have a high
price and must be earned over and over.
W. Somerset Maughan expresses it this way: "If a nation values any-
thing more than freedom, it will lose its freedomg and the irony of it is
thatifit is comfort ' ' '
or money that it values more, it will lose that, too."
