Adamsj When we see or hear the word pioneer we are accustomed to think in terms of vast forests, wild Indians, and a few brave white families with all their world ly goods in a covered wagon, going west, battling with primitive conditions, all in order to make a home for themselves. But there are other places than a west- ern frontier where pioneers are neededg there are other causes to sponsor and battle for than dominating nature and subduing Indians. As I came into Four Oaks in the year 1891 on the first passenger train that ran over this railroad I had an opportun- ity to observe the primitive conditions of this section and to give a helping touch to the many needs of the community when possible. Probably the most th ing institutions here at that tirr the three open bars, each bet than the one small four months in the ye' building in whatj 4 a small unpainted plank one room affair which stood on the site where Mr. W. R. Keen now lives. In fact, if you could eliminate all of Mr. Keen's house except the kitchen and a small part of the din- ing room and turn it with the end facing the highway, you would have the identi- cal building. There was a door in the Continued on page two sch CJ. T. Hatcherj The growth of our school, so well told in the article by Mrs. Adams, has been so rapid, especially during the last seven or eight years, that the average citizen in our community can hardly realize just how large a school we really have, large not only in numbers but in the work done as well. Several things combine to make a modern efficient school possible. We shall discuss a few of these things that make our school what it is today. First, we may consider the school dis- trict, the territory from which the school draws its children and its financi- al Suppl-'f 'Pho 'Pnur 0-:alfa Riel-riot' fSupt. H. B. Marrowj The well rounded school system must develop in several ways. First it must be financially able to provide adequate buildings and efficient instruction. Sec- ond, the citizens of the district must pos- sess a clear conception of what is a good school and be willin gto help obtain it. The Four Oaks Special School Taxing District as enlarged by the recent elec- tion is financially able to provide for that part of the school term which is not provided by the countyg and further un- der the present policy of the county the responsibility of adequate buildings and eoum know' basis. Our school officials can now plan a program of real work for the future. Another elemnet in our school that deserves consideration is the schodl plant. We have a school house and grounds of which we are proud. The school lot contains nearly ten acres of land almost perfectly situated for school Continued on page fhree district and the adequate buildings or a district are all of no avail unless that intangible thing we call school spirit ex- ists and is directed along right lines. The Four Oaks District possesses a splendid school spirit which has mould- ed their present school into an institu- tion which is more than mere material Continued on page .fix THE OAK LEAF 'Tift'-W8 il siireifi '4' ' THE OLD BUILDING-IN USE UNTIL FOUR YEARS AGO Our School-The Present Continued from page one purposes. It lies just the right distance from the railroad and is high enough to assure good drainage and yet level enough to. furnish the best play grounds for the children. At present there are on the school grounds an excellent baseball diamond, two fine out door basket ball courts and a tennis court. Therg is lots of space outside these courts and every day hundreds of boys and girls are at play all over the ten acres. This Spring the local Parent-Teacher Association led in a movement to beautify our grounds with plants and shrubbery. A landscape gardner planned the plantnigs, and a few weeks ago the shrubbery came and is now growing nicely. The pupils have put out numbers of long leaf pines and dog- woods. In a year or so ,we shall have as beautiful school grounds as can be found in our county. The building is the main part of our school plant. It contains twenty four class rooms, a library and an auditorium seating nearly 600. The class rooms are all equipped with the best of everything necessary in the teaching of the child- ren. The desks are the latest type single style. Blackboards are of slate. Light cost far below that usually paid by teachers in homes. Another important part of any school system is the teaching staff. This year our faculty is composed of twenty-four teachers-two me nand twenty two la- dies. All of these teachers have had special training for teaching. Many of them are college graduates. The high school faculty of seven teachers is es- pecially well trained. Every one is a col- lege graduate, some have donergraduate work, and one has secured the master's degree. The elementary and primary teachers are all trained for their work. We have no elementary B certificates and only one or two elementary As. All in all we believe we have a strong facul- ty which is doing a big part in making our school what it is. Besides the twenty four teachers at Four Oaks 'there are four teachers at Royall, two at Parker, and one at Corinth. The most important thing in any school is the student body. The grounds, the buildings, the teachers-these are all here for the one purpose o ftraining the children who come to school. In the Four Oaks district' we have an enroll- ment of over a thousand.

N' JOHN THOMAS HATCHER and RUTH GEDDIE HATCHER The Four Oaks School was indeed a young institution when in l925 John and Ruth l-latcher began to pilot it through so many growing pains. Two years before their arrival the district had erected a new school building con- taining sixteen rooms and an auditorium, Their work began with only thirteen other teachers and 400 students. Gradually the Four Oaks School District was enlarged to include seventeen adjoin- ing districts Forty-eight additional classrooms and many other facilities have been added to accommodate a 400 per cent increase in number of students and faculty members. But the vision of John and Ruth l-latcher is, and always has been, much more than the securing of the brick and mortar for the physical plant. Their vision always included the concept of an educational home for every individual in this large community, ln the school room, as in their own happy home, the rigid requirements of the educational processes, and the stern requirements of formal discipline were always warmed by affection and cheerfulness. ln every walk of life, they have practiced and taught kindness, tolerance, justice and love. NOw there are in school, children and grandchildren of some of the first pupils the l-latchers taught, The sterling influence of their character can be seen in thousands of students of three generations. Seldom have two teachers done so much "to make reason and the will of God prevail." They have lived to witness in the lives of so many others their own immortality, and also, to feel a soul satisfaction in the knowledge that what men often ignored in them, that were they worth to the children of the district and to God. 1 , we 55552 Q 4 af,w-2 A f . 6'-. 7 R4 in wfib 51 1 . .

Uma Wwyyhaay lt was a bright sunny day when Bobby Blackmon suggested to Anne Hockaday that the Cadillac was getting a little worn and that they should trade for a limousine. Having done this, they started out on one of their biggest tours of eastern United States. Here is an account of the trip as later related by them. ,We were playing one of the swankiest night spots in New York, co-owned by Hampton Lee, and Spottswood Johnson, when we received the biggest surprises of our livesg for whom should we see on the dance floor but Juanita Woodall, Jackie Blackmon, Rebecca Lee and Lessie Beasley. After talking with them for a while, we learned that they were prosperous models for the ZANZY AGENCY in New York. While our comedian, John Haywood Allen, was going through his sidesplitting act, there was a familiar peel of laughter in the audience and there sat Betty Langdon, a prominent TV cornediende. Next, our tour carried us to Philadelphia. We were cruising down main street and didn't realize that our chauffeur, Talmadge Snead, had such a heavy foot until a whistle blew. Then a handsome muscle- bound cop walked up to the car and we practically fell over with surprise for we recognized him to be none other than Thomas Parker. We could hardly wait to arrive at our destination and meet our hostess, Peggy Johnson, Night found many people checking their hats with lovely Barbara Benson. While the show was in progress, we almost swallowed our mikes when we saw Marlene Adams, now a cute little cigarette girl, flirting away with one of Philadelphias most prominent young lawyers, Carlyle Upchurch. Next day, after rehearsing until 'way past noon, we went into the COZY GRILL, owned by Rena Langdon and her husband. Our orders of Southern fried chicken and Northern baked ham were taken by two attractive waitresses who seemed to recognize us. We learned later that they were two of our classmates, Jean Holmes and Alice Boykin. While in the restaurant however, a great catastrophe oc- curred-Anne spilled gravy on her newest drees, a creation by Peggy Massengill. Having no other suit- able attire for the matinee performance, she rushed to the nearest FASHION SHOP owned by LaRue Stephenson who employs two of the country's leading fashion designers, Eva Wood Johnson and Jo Linda lvloore. Following a very successful week in Philadelphia, we headed for Baltimore. Everyone knows that you can't ride too far on an empty stomach and being in this predicament, we begin to look for a snack bar. Luck was ours for soon we saw a cute little place called lvlA'S DINNER, Shock was again ours for we saw a smiling woman standing in the door wiping her hands on her white apron and we knew right off that she was Shirley Johnson. After a delicious meal served to us by two oldtimers, Faye Stanley, and Reta Mae Johnson, we hit the road again. We arrived in Baltimore a little earlier than expected and decided to catch a pro basketball game between the "Boston Red Stockings" and the "Baltimore Celtansf' On the court we saw Charles Up- church who was running the Boston opposition ragged with his long set shots and his daring charges. The Boston team was sparked up by a lad named Sherrill Lee who was matching Charles with his fine exhibition. After the game, we returned to the theatre to make ready for the night's performance. Upon arrival, we found the stage manager, Charles lvlassengill, in a frenzy because our band leader, Pete Las- siter, had knocked over a piece of scenery. We were glad when our week s run In thus falr cnty ended because we are a restless lot and we like to move on Snnce we had not spent much trme In our Caprtal Crty we planned to vrsat It now We smrled wlth pleasare as our guide Ann Moore showed us around We passed the tomb of the Un known Solduer and were proud to fund Roy Johnson as one of the Honor Guards We were stull prouder to fund the Veep s secretary was now Dorothy Stanley As we were leaving Washlngton our heavy footed chauffeur once more got us unto trouble and thus tnme It dldn t look so easy for we dldn t know the cop We found that there was one necessary undesired vrslt to court But It wasn t as bad as we had antlcn pated for we knew the judge Shrrley Wood let us off wlth a small flne plus a promuse that wed be more careful next tnme Sunce we were passlng through we stopped In for a vrsut vvath our dear old Alma Mater Our eyes popped and our mouths dropped when Leroy Parker greeted us and told us he was now pnncupal of dear old F O H S He led us down the corrvdor past the homerooms of Margaret Adams Dorothy San ders Anne Beasley Annette Ingram and Mary Lou Lee and out to th gym where Margaret Creech was readyrng her stvll undefeated basketball team for therr next game Hearing a famullar buzz we hurried over to the agnculture burldung to see Levon Wood rnstructung the prospective Future Farmers Leroy told us that Ins Ruth Johnson and Maverene McCabe were marned and luvung happzly on therr large farms near Four Oaks The chauffeur met us at th school door and sadly stated that our lnmouslne vxas no longer standlng on all fours Rushrng to th phone we called the MESSO OIL STATION We were qulckly servlced by the proprretor Kenneth Johnson and hrs two assrstants Vernon Norrrs and Zeke Cox Whrle we were waltlng for the ture to b frxed we sauntered down to the AMALGAMATED DRUG STORE and ordered a bug orange from Evelyn Stnckland Whule we were remlnnscung we were startled to see old Devan Ballance busuly fullnng prescrlptrons nn the back Tume would not permlt us to lunger long ID our hometown so we moved on to Atlanta Just as we arnved Bobby was stncken wuth a hornble toothache He hurned to the nearest dentlst s offnce and was greeted by the receptronnst Shelby Strlckland who Informed hum wuth a smrle that he would soon encounter Dr Shernll Thompson and has nurse Lots Wood Followrng a su cessful weelf un Atlanta we motored on to Mnamu Our Muaml club was owned by two young Iadues just startrng out ID show busrness Joanne Massengnll and Betty Barbour Flonda beck ons many vacationers so be It wath Marvln Dodd a wealthy oll tycoon who was passing away has lensure trme with two co eds from the Unuversrty of Florlda After the matinee we took a stroll down the beach where we trapped over Betty Holley Levay Johnson Nancy Parker Betty Barefoot Irene Thornton and Wlllne Wrlkuns who were holding promunent secretanal jobs IH Mlaml and the surroundlng towns So ended our tour and strange enough to say we met all the Four Oaks 54 grads somewhere along the way Bobby Blackmon Manager of the GAY ROLJSTABOUTS Anne Hockaday Star of the GAY ROUSTABOUTS 1 ,.,. , ' . 1 - I - 1 1 ' 1 - , , , .

C., APRIL, 1927 Number 5 FOUR OAKS SCHOOL BUILDING OUR SCHOOL-THE PAST OUR SCHOOL-THE PRESENT OUR SCHOOL-THE FUTURE fMrs. B. B. Adamsl When we see or hear the word pioneer we are accustomed to think in terms of vast forests, wild Indians, and a few brave white families with all their world ly goods in a covered wagon, going west, battling with primitive conditions, all in order to make a home for themselves. But there are other places than a west- ern frontier Where pioneers are needed: there are other causes to sponsor and battle for than dominating nature and subduing Indians. As I came into Four Oaks in the year 1891 on the first passenger train that ran over this railroad I had an opportun- ity to observe the primitive conditions of this section and to give a helping touch to the many needs of the community when possible. Probably the most th" ing institutions here at that tin' the three open bars, each be-+' than the one small sch' four months in the ye' building in what! a small unpainted plank one room affair which stood on the site where Mr. W. R. Keen now lives. In fact, if you could eliminate all of Mr. Keen's house except the kitchen and a small part of the din- ing room and turn it with the end facing the highway, you would have the identi- cal building. There was a door in the Conzinued on page two CJ. T. Hatcherj The growth of our school, so Well told in the article by Mrs. Adams, has been so rapid, especially during the last seven or eight years, that the average citizen in our community can hardly realize just how large a school we really have, large not only in numbers but in the work done as well. Several things combine to make a modern efficient school possible. We shall discuss a few of these things that make our school what it is today. First, we may consider the school dis- trict, the territory from which the school draws its children and its financi- al Suppr' + 'Pho PHIIY 051116 rliefrinf fSupt. H. B. Marrowl The well rounded school system must develop in several ways. First it must be financially able to provide adequate buildings and efficient instruction. Sec- ond, the citizens of the district must pos- sess a clear conception of what is a good school and be willin gto help obtain it. The Four Oaks Special School Taxing District as enlarged by the recent elec- tion is financially able to provide for that part of the school term which is not provided by the county, and further un- der the present policy of the county the responsibility of adequate buildings and equip know' if basis. Our school officials can now plan a program of real work for the future. Another elemnet in our school that deserves consideration is the school plant. We have a school house and grounds of which we are proud. The school lot contains nearly ten acres of land almost perfectly situated for school Cozzzimzed on page three district and the adequate buildings of a district are all of no avail unless that intangible thing we call school spirit ex- ists and is directed along right lines. The Four Oaks District possesses a splendid school spirit which has mould- ed their present school into an institu- tion which is more than mere material Continued on page .fix THE OAK LEAF ' I- ' ,J , V Ji 1 , -. K . ' ' , . Wm- .vfu..ae:Z-at iliiifai 2 . . . . al THE OLD BUILDING-IN USE UNTIL FOUR YEARS AGO Our School-The Present 'Continued from page one purposes. It lies just the right distance from the railroad and is high enough to assure good drainage and yet level enough to furnish the best play grounds for the children. At present there are on the school grounds an excellent baseball diamond, two fine out door basket ball courts and a tennis court. Therg is lots of space outside these courts and every day hundreds of boys and girls are at play all over the ten acres. This Spring the local Parent-Teacher Association led in a movement to beautify our grounds with plants and shrubbery. A landscape gardner planned the plantnigs, and a few weeks ago the shrubbery came and is now growing nicely. The pupils have put out numbers of long leaf pines and dog- woods. In a year or so .we shall have as beautiful school grounds as can be found in our county. The building is the main part of our school plant. It contains twenty four class rooms, a library and an auditorium seating nearly 600. The class rooms are all equipped with the best of everything necessary in the teaching of the child- ren. The desks are the latest type single style. Blackboards are of slate. Light cost far below that usually paid by teachers in homes. Another important part of any school system is the teaching staff. This year our faculty is composed of twenty-four teachers-two me nand twenty two la- dies. All of these teachers have had special training for teaching. Many of them are college graduates. The high school faculty of seven teachers is es- pecially well trained. Every one is a col- lege graduate, some have donergraduate work, and one has secured the master's degree. The elementary and primary teachers are all trained for their work. We have no elementary B certificates and only one or two elementary As. All in all we believe we have a strong facul- ty which is doing a big part in making our school what it is. Besides the twenty four teachers at Four Oaks 'there are four teachers at Royall, two at Parker, and one at Corinth. The most important thing in any school is the student body. The grounds, the buildings, the teachers-these are all here for the one purpose o ftraining the children who come to school. In the Four Oaks district' we have an enroll- ment of over a thousand.
