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 bad. 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 ours. ' 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 future. 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 dreams. 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.

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. 5 v I . 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. Q 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.

Hundley look on attentively as Mary Jane Pickup, Eddie Gibson, Violet Hubbard, David Ader- 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 these requirements. Required courses for the Academic program are: five units in English, two in hold, and Joretta Nester display their projects from Chaucer's England. lab science, two in mathematics, one in U. S. history, one in government, one in world history, andthree years of health and physi- cal education. If a student plans to go into engineering, one year of mechanical draw- ing is required. He must take five addition- al courses selected from math, science, and foreign languages. Then he must take four other electives which may be any of the courses offered in the curriculum. As a part of their study of Western literature, the junior English class enjoys singing "Sweet Betsy from Pike." 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 lost forever. 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 I, II, III, and IV, four in foreign languages including Latin I and 11 and Spanish I and II, four in industrial arts including gene ral shop, machine woodwork, mechanical drawing, and advanced drawing, three in music including choral music, band, and music appreciation, three years of health and physical education, and one each of speech, distributive edu- cation and journalism. Mrs. Poston explains the legend of the albatross in "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" to Paul Jones in a typical English class. .Q an -if if GENERAL PROGRAM IS NON SPECIALIZED COURSE and Irene Hedgecock perfect their Spanish by hearing Spanish students, Shelby Isley, Mary Ann Gusler, N The General program is the basic high school course. It is for those students who wishagood, practical education rather than the specialized academic or vocational work. The required courses for the General program are the same as those required for the Academic program. The differenw be- Jeanette Setliff improves h e r articulation in speech class as Miss Knight notes her progress. the correct pronunciation of Spanish words under the direction of Mrs. Mitchell. tweenthe twoprograms lies in the electives which a student must take. He must take four electives following a co-ordinated and sequential pattern of subjects involving math, science, foreign language, and! or vocational subjects. Five other electives must be chosen from any inthe curriculum. Donna Daniel learns about a Roman wedding through her Latin translation. V VOCATIONAL PROGRAM GIVES PRACTICAL TRAINING Ballots from the mock election are counted by Carolyn Rakes, Barbara Wyatt, Randy Joyce, David Akers, and David Jones, members of the American government class. The Vocational program provides stu- dents with an opportunity to acquaint them- selves with the fundamental principles of business, home economics,industrialarts, and distributive education. The required courses of the Vocational program arethe same as those required for Under the watchful eye of Mr. Cassady, Jackie Fudge diagrams a coal shaft in World geography. An enlightening report on the ancient Egyptians is given by Jimmy Joyce to the World history class. the Academic and General. As in the other two programs th e difference lies in the electives. The student must choose three orfour electives from one of the vocational areas. Also, he must take five or six other courses from any that are offered in the curriculum. Lewis Eanes, Mary Ann Gusler, Mildred Byrd, and Jimmy Stultz prepare to debate on the presidential candidates, Mr. Nixon and Mr. Kennedy, with Mrs. Mitchell serving as moderator. SELECTED FEW MAY TAKE ADVANCED SUBJECTS A The principle of percentages is demonstrated by Shirley Bryant and Penny Whitlock as Mr. Smith looks on. A few students in the eighth grade are permitted with parental consent to take al- gebra 9 or math 9 instead of eighth grade arithmetic or take the first year of a foreign language rather than history 8. The selection of students who are per- mitted to take this advanced work is based Two intersecting planes are drawn by B. J. Carter in solid geometry. upon such factors as intelligence test scores, reading t e s t scores, achievement t e s t scores, and academic standing. The reason for allowing certain students to take advanced courses in the eighth grade is to make it possible for them to take certain advanced subjects in the twelfth grade. ' Mr. Smith explains how to plot a graph to Frankie Barker and Connie Shelton in algebra class. CHANGE IS MADE IN GRADUATICN REQUIREMENTS With Mrs. Eanes, Teresa Moore and Jerry Mabry learn more about the care and feeding of fish in science class. Requirements for those students gradu- ating in 1961 and 1962 are 18 credits. When these graduates were eighth graders, credit was not given for eighth grade courses. In 1958, a revision was made of the required credits for graduationg the major change In chemistry, Mrs. Taylor explains to Rebecca Prillaman and Terry Britton the combining capacity of chemicals. made was that credit would be given for eighth grade subjects and that students graduating in 1963 and after would be re- quiredto have 22 1X2 credits.

Health and physical education is re- quired of all students inthe eighth, ninth, and tenth grades. Gymnastics, individual and team sports, and health education classes make up the course. In the tenth grade, driver education is also included. Students are not only trained in the rules of such sports as baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and bowling, but also in the rules of good sportsmanship in play. In these classes outstanding talent is dis- covered, and these students are encouraged to try out for the varsity teams. Boys' physical education classes learn better coordination through such sports as basketball. HOME EC. DEPARTMENT HAS LATEST EQUIPMENT What's cooking?

In distributive education, students re- ceive classroom instruction in the mornings at school, and in the afternoons, they go to their respective j obs for on-the-job training.

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- telligently for the future. Records are kept inthe guidance office giving such information concerning each student as his attendance, health, scholarship, work habits, participa - tion in extra-curricular activities, special 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 aid information. Sh e distributes colleg e board examination applications and assists the college-bound student in completing these. The journalism class, which met the fourth period under the direction of Mrs. Poston, studied newspaper fundamentals and published THE SPARK. Daily classwork and countless afternoon and night sessions gave us a school paper we looked forward to eagerly. Six editions were issued during the year. Columns that made the paper mor e appealing were: "The Student for Studentsl of the Month," a column that honored an outstanding student, "Newsettes," which gave choice bits about people and activities of the school, and "The Inquiring Reporter,"which quoted students' opinions concerning int e r - esting topics. Ralph Gunter receives guidance from Mrs. Ross concerning his future plans. ALL STUDENTS ARE INSTRUCTED IN LIBRARY USE Magazines in the Library keep us well informed on current events. Connie Shelton reads about current progress in education. Our well-equipped library is open to the students throughout the entire school day. Miss Elrod, the librarian, is on duty a half hour before school and after school for the benefit of those students who want to use the library at these times. All students are instructed in the use of library materials. Classwork involving Movies add interest to class activities. Mis s Elrod helps David Akers get the projector ready for a class movie. the use of the library is given through the year inthe different classes giving the stu- dents an opportunity for exploring and for leisure reading. Movies, filmstrips, recordings, and other audio-visual materials are ordered and handled through the library. In preparation for a class report, Betty Crawford, Glenda Anderson, and Judy Merriman utilize the reference books in the library. i B J CARTER ELECTED PRESIDENT OE SENIOR CLASS Leading the Senior Class through its most important and final year are the Senior Class officers.

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. - RANDY JOYCE HEADS S.C.A.

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 Latin. 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 Safety Patrol. All organizations off e r opportunities . 'ja -ti, 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. KEPRESENT EVERY HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITY S. C.

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 in Martinsville. 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. Preparations for clean-up day were made by the S. C. A. Each homeroom was pro- vided with cleaning materials for the nec- essary cleaning tasks. suggestion box in the library. The S. C. A. kept a scrapbook of all school activities which -included clippings and pictures from local papers about scho- lastic and athletic achievements. David Jones played a big part in getting the Club of the Month organized and function- ing. Devotions were given every Monday morning over the Public Address System under the sponsorship of the S. C. A. Judy Ramsey was chairman of this activity. Mary Jane Lawless adds articles to the Lost and Found Locker.

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 basketball. 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. Sp e ct at o r s , as wellas team members, reaped from the harvest of good sportsman- ship. For this, Fi e ldale Hi gh is noted. Truly, "It is not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game."

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 the year with great expectations of continuing old friendships and making aquaintances with new students. Randy Joyce, the S. C. A. president, addresses the student body and faculty on the first day of school. 'FEATURES OF YEAR AREtWELL-REMEMBERED EVENTS From the beginning of school, one event after another burst upon us in rapid sequence. The events not only included working and learning together, as pictured on the preceding pages, but 'laughing and playing together. 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, also. - No student knew who the recipients of these awards were until May, immediately before the Hi gh li gh t i n g the year was the long-awaited and festive junior-senior banquet and prom held at the Lynwood Club. With their backs to the camera are, left to right: Joy Smith and Iva Jarrett. Across the FIELDCREST was to be distributed. During the awards program, c 0 pi e s of the FIELDCREST were presented to these students first in order to further honor them for their accomplishments. As we finger through these pages, we may linger on one special page. For there we may live once more a happy moment of the by- gone year. Whether it was the v e ry f i r st opening assembly in the auditorium, the harvest festival, the beauty pageant, the banquet and prom, a- wards day, or the night of graduation, we re- member it all. It was ours--a time of enjoying life to the fullest, a time we never had before and shall never have again. table facing the camera are Janet Smith, Mary Ann Shires, Audie Turner, and Jeanette Setliff serving tea to Jean Plaster. WITH FALL COMES BLOODMOBILE AND TESTS The senior class of Fieldale High School sponsored the bloodmobile. Our students com- bined their efforts with Fieldcrest Mill's in an attempt to serve the County by obtaining blood donors from the s u r r o undi ng communities. 'Several of our own students, who were already eighte e n years of age, gave blood. We were very proud that We exc e e de d our quota. The blood was supplied to the blood bank of the Roanoke District. In late September, Fieldale students took three tests: Schools and Colleges .Aptitude Test KSCATD, Sequential Test of Educational Progress CSTEPJ, and the Differential Aptitude Test QDATJ. The members of the ninth, tenth, and eleventh grades took the SCAT and STEP, and the eighth graders, the DAT. SCAT tests measure a p e r s on' s ability to solve p r o ble m s of a mathematical nature, to give m e ani n g s of Words, and to understand Our community physician, Dr. G. W. Curwen, gives Frank Bossart his okay before Frank donates his pint of blood. sentences. The STEP tests include math, science, social studies, reading, listening, and writing. These tests measure how well a person is able to use what he has learned and not what he remembers. DAT includes verbal r e a s o ni n g , abstract reasoning, language including spelling and sen- tences, clerical speed and accuracy, mechani- cal reasoning, and space relations. Concentrating to make their best scores, Wayne Lackey, Eric Tipton, Earnest Edwards, Ralph Tur ne r , and Larry Sharpe struggle th r 0 u gh the SCAT test. 97 HARVEST QUEEN AND POMPON GIRLS ARE Cl-IOSEN The Harvest Festival of Fieldale was the most colorful affair during the entire autumn season. The festival was sponsored by the P. T. A. and was held in the cafeteria. Members of the organization, the facultie s of the ele- mentary and high school, and the students all combined their efforts to provide entertainment for several hundred people. Various concessions were held including bake sales, cake walks, the country store, dancing, fishing, bingo, bobbing for apples, rummage sales, movies, and other games suitable for the occasion. The main feature of the eve ning was the crowning of B-Anne Merriman as Harvest Queen by the assistant principal, Mr. Eddie Rakes. B-Anne Merriman Harvest Queen, 1960 The high school band had an added att r a c t i o nof sixteen high-s t epping girls who led the band on all occasions. The director, Mr. Paul Z i m m e r m a n , chose as finalists those girls who had poise, marching ability, nice appearance, and an ability to get along with others. Best in the C ounty , our Pompon girls were, left to right: Lynda Hagood, Fran Dalton, Eug- enia Barnes, Barbara Wyatt, Connie Shelton, Mary Jane Lawless, Peggy Beheler, Pat Poindexter, Diane Gilbert, Sandra Turner, Judy Tilley, Connie Tilley, and Jenna Lou Compton. 98 PEP RALLIES AROUSE MUCH SCHOOL SPIRIT The cheerleaders led the student body in cheers and a- roused s c h 0 ol spirit during athletic events. Two members, Jenna Lou Compton and Becky Barnard, were added to the present squad. At the tryouts during assembly, faculty judges chose the new members who were judged on the basis of posture, voice quality, knowledge of the cheer, hand motions, and poise. From left to right are: Brenda Martin, Becky Barnard, Margie Barnard, Barbara Wyatt, Jenna Lou Compton, Eugenia Barnes, and Fran Dalton. With loud noises and shouting, Fiel- dale pep rallies, which were held in the auditorium, created tense excitement and enthusiasm before the games. Our cheer- leaders introduced old f a m i lia r cheers and gay new ones. Students learned the most recent ones so as to be ready on the night of the big game. Now, as we look back, we remember our pep rallie s as one of the most exciting activities in our school. Dressed in their Columbia blue sweaters and white skirts, the cheerleaders stand ready to lead the stu- dents. "F-I-E-L-D-A-L-E, Hey!"isthecheerofthemoment. P ENTIRE STUDENT BODY ENJOYS INITIATIONS As a part of "Rat Week," Fran Dalton, a new Beta Club member, carries Eddie Gibs on' s books to his next class. 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 David Jones's unmerciful hand. At the con- clusion of the activities, refreshments were served after which each went his way feeling very tired, very happy, and most of all very honored. To show good sportsmanship, Mary Jane Lawless, Mary Ann Gusler, and Margie Barnard, model their costumes for Beta initiation. To be accepted into the Dramatic Club, the candidates had to learn all the parts of the stage and be able to carry on an oral dis- cussion about themselves. They also had to write a theme on some phase of dramatics and go through the questioning of an interro- gation room composed of Miss Knight and old members. Those who s u c c e e d e d in accomplishing these assignments were admitted into the club. Screening new Dramatic Club members becomes the duty of Patty Gilbert, Janice Joyce, Gale Walker, Shelby Isley, Mike Hundley, and Carolyn Lawson. lO0 JEAN PLASTER REIGNS AS HOMECOMING QUEEN Barbara Wyatt Jean Plaster Elva Adkins Princess Homecoming Queen Princess Spirits soared high at F i e ld ale during the De c e mb e r 17, 1960, homecoming game when the Blue Devils played host to George Washing- ton of Danville. During the preliminary, the Blue Imps were forced to bow to the George Washington J. V.'s after a courageous struggle. Norma Jean Plaster reigned as homecoming queen which highlighted the evening, with her coronation taking place between games. The lVIildred Byrd Eleventh Grade Attendant Donna Stegall Tenth Grade Attendant queen's princesses were Elva Adkins and Bar- bara Wyatt, and her attendants were Mildred Byrd, Donna Stegall, Connie Shelton, and Becky Barnard. - In the varsity game, our boys fought hard, but the Danville Cardinals took the lead with a final score of 93-69. After the game, the Beta Club sponsored the annual homecoming dance held in the gym. Connie Shelton Becky Barnard Ninth Grade Attendant Eighth Grade Attendant IOI JOY SMITH IS CHRISTMAS PAGEANT MODONNA Joy Smith Madonna Selected by the Student Body Ronnie Setliff, Mike Hundley, Gale Walker, and B. The Christmas assembly brought out the theme "White Christmas" in a most inspirat- ional and thought-provoking way. The mem- bers of the Dramatic Club p r e s e nt e d the story of the Nativity . The cast consisted of B. J. Carter, Gale Walker, R. B. Hundley, Janice Joyce, Melanie Daniel, Ronnie Bald- win, Georg e Koger, and J. R. May. The honor of being the Madonna was bestowed upon Joy Smith, a very deserving senior girl. The background music for the pageant was 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.

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.

With a New Orleans setting, the theme, "Mardi Gras," was carried out, using a lavender and white color sceme and decor- ations which displayed imaginative talent by the juniors. Candlelight shadowed the room with ro- matic and mystiiying excitement. Adding to the enchantment of the evening, masks were provided as favors, creating an atmosphere and spirit depicting the "Mardi Gras" with all its hidden delights.

For Iva Jarrett, 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 been attained! 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.
