'if..fl1" CLASS HISTGRV ince our sixth and seventh grade rooms were located in the high school building, we seventh graders eagerly looked forward to entering high school. This happy time arrived and we were fortunate in having as our advisors Mrs. Dobyns and Mrs. Simpkins. Our officers were as follows: Roger Gallimore, president: George Vaughan, vice-president: Christine Sweeney, secretary: and Wanda Naff, treasurer. Mr. Miller became our new principal. He and the other faculty members were very helpful in our adjustment to the new high school life. Mr. Miller has remained our princi- pal through all four of our high school years. In 1949, we became sophomores with Mrs. Rainey and Mrs. Agee as home-room teachers. Our officers were as follows: Wanda Naff, president: James Casteel, vice-presi- dent: and Christine Sweeney, secretary and reporter. Entering junior year in 1950, we began some of our most important high school activities. Our advisors for the year were, Mrs. Miller and Miss Slusher. Our new class officers were as follows: Roger Gallimore, president, Claude Royal, Vice-President:James Casteel, secretary: and Eugene Town- ley, reporter. Two of the big events for the year were the Junior Play and the Junior-Senior Banquet. The play was "Me and My Sha- dow". Miss Shelor directed it. It was a success, and much of the credit should go to Miss Shelor. The long awaited senior year came in 1951. Now we have those privileges that the lower-classmen envy so much and strive for. Our officers are as follows: Jane Slusher, presi- dentp Roger Gallimore, vice-presidentg Barbara Williamson, secretary: Anna Mae Williams, 'treasurerg and Wanda maff, reporter. Our first .event of the year was the play, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay". Sixteen students participated. It was as outstanding play. Mrs. Rainey directed I and Mrs. Altizer took charge of costumes and stage settings. To raise money for a long anticipated trip, we seniors have sponsored a magazine campaign. The campaign went over the top and the class eagerly anticipates a trip in the spring. We are looking forward to the event which the Sophomore Class will be giving the seniors since there is no Junior Class. It will be wonderful to enjoy it without all the work we did for the seniors last year. To Mrs. Altizer, our faithful advisor and sponsor, we wish to express our gratitude and thanks. She has given us inspiring leadership throughout the year, for which we are grateful. 'A' LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT n this, the thirtieth day of May, in the year 1952, being sound in mind and body, we do hereby will and bequeath to the under-classmen and faculty the following: To Mr. E.

CLASS PROP!-IEC? ear, all ye unbelievers, and give heed unto my wisdom, for I am a man of mighty and mystic powers. I am the seventh son of the seventh son of a seventh son. I can read,the past, the present, and the future, and I never err. You, who are members of this famous class of 1952, naturally feel a curiosity, even a slight anxiety, as to your future. I shall tell you what and where you will be, let us say, twenty years from now. First we go to a famous art museum in New York. There we see in a glass case some yellowed sheets of newspaper. The heading is "Advice to the Lovelorn, " by Polly Pepper. Polly was better known to us a Jane Slusher. Beside a collection of cups and medals we see a card which says, "The trophies won by Billy Wed- dle, world's greatest athlete. " Here is a helmet and badge which originally be- longed to Christine Sweeney the first policewoman of the town. ln the next case is a beautiful photograph of a spring scene taken by Betty Williams, the famous art photographe r . ln the next case is a beautiful but sad manuscript. It is a poem, "My Youth, " written by the famous poet, Walter Wilson, and first published in 1962. And now we see a lovely statue. The card reads, "One of the earlier works of Virginia Trail, the famous sculptor. " The next, a strange collection, consisting of a nose ring, a feather-tipped spear, and a woven grass basket. These are mementoes of Gwendolene Poff for her many years of missionary work which included teaching the cannibals how to prepare their food pro- perly. Next, we see a steel diving suit formerly owned by Lewis Dickerson, famous sea-weed collector. Next is a model of the Do-Everything machine which made Fred Pugh farnous. A special attachment automatically spanks Freddie Jr. when he pulls the cat's tail. Now we see a costume, old and faded, but still beautiful. It was worn by Betty Sumner when she played Lady Macbeth in Shakespeare's "Macbeth", This case contains paintings of a beautiful woman. The card reads, "Pictures of Zona Sweeney, the celebrated beauty who married a Grand Duke". Last we see the hat, kerchief, and lucky pieces of Roger Gallimore, who, as a result of reading too many adventure tales, ran away to sea and became a pirate. Passing through a small village on Sunday morn- ing, we see Reverend Major Thompson and his wife, the former Betty Reed, on their way to church. ln Philadelphia we find Harless Weeks manager of a soap company. His motto is "I keep the world clean. ' ' In the display room of a large gown establishment, we see Maralee Bishop as chief model. We find Janet Scott as head operator in a telephone office in Tampa City, Florida. In the same city, we see Jim Casteel, the famous detective, down on all fours looking at the sidewalk through a magnifying glass. If we should go as far as Hawaii, we would see Claude Royal playing love songs to a pretty Hawaiian miss. In the new library at Roanoke, Mattie Yearout is employed as librarian. She took the job so that she could read all the new books before- anyone else got a chance. At Yale University we find Eugene iownley being installed as President. In the cool, clear waters of the North Sea we see a yacht lying at anchor. On deck is the multimillion- aire, Dock Sweeney. As a member of the Northwest mounted police rides by, we recognize him to be Frankie Sowers. Their motto is, "The mounties always get their man. " At Floyd, at the F.H. S. Alumni Reunion, we find several of the 1952 graduates. There are Dr. Barbara Williamson, a famous surgeon in a large hospital, and, her "girl Friday", Iva Compton. Rising to make a speech is the famous divorce lawyer, Wayne Poff. He calls our attention to the lovely flowers donated by Mary Wilson, now leading florist of the town. The judge, George Dickerson, announces that after the entertainment, refreshments will be served through the courtesy of Virginia Shelor, proprietor of the delightful Old Home Tea Room. Now the entertainment begins. There is the marvelous dancer, Mary Thompsong song writer and singer, Audrey Sweeneyg and the well-known pianist, Wanda Naff. We had the following telegram from Anna Will- iams: "Am private secretary to the head of huge corporation. He was born crazy and had a relapse. Won't give me time off to come to reunion. I shall write all his letters backwards for a week. " In other large cities all over the world we find more of the l95Z graduates. Nancy Boothe is now an usher in a movie theater. By doing this she sees all shows free. Phyllis Loudy is employed by the Metropolitan and Chicago Opera Companies as leading dramatic soprano. We see by the papers that George Vaughan has been three times Governor of Virginia. His motto is "All for one and that one me. " Jean Dickerson is now owner and manager of the huge chain of restaurants known all over the world as the Eat and Run Restaurants. Lorraine Correll, author of the book, "Exercises For Reducing One's Income Tax, " is now in jail for not paying her income tax. Luvina Hylton and Elizabeth Hylton are undercover agents for the FBI. Thomas Hall is raising winter wheat and summer squash on his farm in Ohio. " Glenn Reed is now employed with the Synthetic Building Company as a plumber. Nancy Basham is a wealthy cosmetician. She combines the arts of beauty culture and plastic surgery in her Ye Beautifier Shoppy--alterations while you wait. Peggy Keith, well-known social leader, is now married to Gordon Moneybags, son of the multi- millionaire, T. Oliver Moneybags. As the seventh son of the seventh son of a seventh son I have accurately revealed your futures. If, at any time you need advice, let me know, and I shall be delighted to render you my well-known invaluable assistance. WLWQSY .fxxgsf 9 1 .
