Co-editor EDGAR DRAUGHN Business Manager MISS LOUISE KENDALL Ad visor DEDICATION Mrs. Mary V. Locklear In this 1949 edition of Maroon and Grey , we, the Senior Class, would like to honor Mrs. Locklear who has so faithfully directed our Senior activities. For four years we have studied History under her guidance, and we fully appreciate her thorough methods of teaching, and also her aptitude for getting the greatest possible amount of work from her students. Those o f us who have shared hours of work and fun with Mrs. Locklear have been made aware of her deep interest in people, her thoughtfulness for others, and her readiness to help in time of need. She demands honesty, loyalty and lots of hard work when there is a job to be done, and in return she gives of her time, effort, and encouragement to help us do it well. We know of no one who so thoroughly enjoys good conversation, nor one who keeps better informed on topics of current interest. Her keen sense of humor and ready wit in speaking make her an interesting person to know. And so, with our love, and in sincere appreciation of her help as teacher, counselor, and friend, we, the Senior Class, dedicate this 1949 edition of Maroon and Grey to MRS. MARY V. HERRING LOCKLEAR. 2 FACULTY Mary V. H. Locklear Social Sciences Thomas H. Houck E nglish, Social Science Hoyle S. Broome Principal J. C. Hiatt Physical Education Louise Kendall English Georgia F.

Curtain 11 LAST WILL and TESTAMENT WE, THE CLASS OF 1949, being about to pass out of this educational world of Franklin High School do declare this to be our last Will and Testament. ITEM I. We give and bequeath to the high school faculty of Franklin our sincere appreciation for their guidance and leadership through four years of school life. ITEM II. To our administrative officials we have much admiration for your tact, tolerance and broadmindedness in dealing with us in such a patient and understanding manner. You have been not only officials, but true friends. ITEM III. To Franklin High School, our Alma Mater, we leave our best wishes for your future; may you mean to other classes what you have meant to us, the class of 1949. ITEM IV. To all incoming Senior Classes, we leave our home room, with its wide circ le of memories, our knowledge and Senior traditions. ITEM V. To all Sophomores, we leave our lack of dignity, our ignorance and stuck-up airs—Im¬ prove on our use of these. ITEM VI. To all Freshmen classes, we leave with you the ambition that will make you become Seniors and enjoy the prestige we now enjoy. The following gifts are very significant to us—So think deeply of their value 1. Edgar Draughn’s heart to Geraldine Renegar, she has it anyhow. 2. Betty Jo Roberson’s giggles to Flora Hem- mings, who never smiles, let alone, giggle. 3. Charles Sykes’ ability never to get in a hurry to Carlos Surratt, who hurries through life. 4. Stanley Rose’s ability to sleep on class to Billy Overby, who is afraid to sleep for fear he’ll miss something. 5. Norris Hodge’s ability as President to Glenn Macey; may Glenn be as efficient as Norris. 6. Frank Miller’s ability to drive the Athletic and school bus to Bobby McHone. 7. Raymond Gardner’s ability to get along with Mrs. Locklear to Don Nichols. 8. Charles Chappell’s use of the dictionary to J. C. Atkins. Maybe J. C. will then say more. 9. Albert McHone’s quality for being quiet to Mildred Jarrell, who rattles all the time. 10. Annie Laura Lambert’s dependability to Peggy Hall, who can’t keep up with her self. 11. Rosa Nichols’ ability to play basketball and make 99 on English to Helen Carter. 12. Bobby Lou McCraw’s enthusiasm to Berline Tate, who is placid. 13. Betty Bunker’s lady-like ways to Dorothy Hill, who is often tomboyish. 14. Myrtle Fulk’s height to Ruby Harold, then Ruby would not have to look down on so many admiring boys. 15. Louis Allred’s pranks to Ed Southern and Buster Gordon, who always want to get into something mischievous—but never do. 16. Bill ie Gentry’s softly modulated voice to Buddy Hutchens, who could use it. 17. Ray Creed’s curls to Roger Thomas and James Smith so they will look more adorable. 18. The height, and big feet of Joe Fulk to Roger Lowe and Ralph Evans—they could use some of Joe’s extra height. 19. The friendliness of Wanda Golding to Mary Felts, who won’t be friendly but to a few. 20. Lorine Hall’s diamond to Verna Thornburg because Verna’s done enough courting to have one. 21. Virginia Keye’s shrill voice to Rachel Creed who can never be heard. 22. Wallace Leonard’s talent as a ring-leader to Howard Shelton who never investigates trouble. 23. The style of Curtis Lewis to Alfred Gardner and Smith Hardy, which will help them be more the ladies’ men type. 24. The silence of Myrtle Phillips to Nancy Beamer, who talks so much, but really knows what she is talking about most of the time. 2 5. Helen Stone’s power to stand in with the faculty to Thelma Hanks, who likes to get into a few mischievous deeds. 26. The chic manner and looks of Marie Webb to Annabelle Beasley; use them to an advantage, Annabelle. 27. The ability of Betty Lou Sutphin to do many different things to Annie Ruth Hodge, which should make her very popular. 2 8. Herman Nichols leaves his love of history to Kester Jarrell, who pretends to like it. 29. Billy Norman’s air of being withdrawn into a world of his own to Bill Scott, who loves to get into other peoples’ worlds. 30. Benton Wagoner’s strong personality to Billy Ray Nichols, so he will be more popular. 31. The blush of Don Venable to Doris Nichols, who knows how to use it. Last, the winning ways of Larry Fulk and Mickey Anne Sutphin to all Class Mascots. We do hereby constitute and approve the said High School faculty as executor of our last Will and Testament. In witness whereof, we the class of 1949, the testator, have to this will set our hands and seal this 27th day of May, one thousand, nine hundred and forty-nine. SENIOR CLASS OF 1949. PROPHECY Let us look into the future ten years to 1959 aand see what has happened to the Class of ’49. We find Louis Allred as chief chemist of the Mount Airy Research and Experimental Station. Louis has just made a great contribution to man¬ kind—the discovery of the law of gravity. We haven’t the heart to tell him that Sir Isaac New¬ ton beat him to it. As first grade teacher back at F.H.S. Betty Lou Sutphin is doing an excellent job. All the kiddies love her. Norris Hodge, mastermind of the music world, has just finished the " Unfinished Symphony.” He and his colleague, Myrtle Phillips, are touring Europe giving piano concerts. Another maestro in the music world is Ray¬ mond Gardner who is teaching music at Franklin High School. Raymond still likes to chat and swap recipes with Mrs. Locklear. Employed by the Toast Airline Company, we find Don Venable, Wallace Leonard and Wanda Lou Golding. Don is pilot of the " Meteo¬ rite.” Co-pilot is Wallace and Wanda Lou is chief hostess. They are making daily non-stop flights from Toast to Lowgap. Edgar Draughn is finding it rather difficult to keep on schedule with his Greyhound Bus route from White Fork to Dobson. He just has to stop off a few minutes to see Geraldine and the kids. We find Annie Laura Lambert serving effi¬ ciently as chief advisor of the Toast Chapter of the American Red Cross. Annie Laura likes her job but being so far away from home she some¬ times gets homesick. Mount Airy’s newest establishment, the Early Bird Alarm Clock Company is owned and controlled by Curtis Lewis. Curtis is trying to get out of his old habit of being late. In his office personnel we find Bobby Lou McCraw serving as his most efficient secretary. Bobby Lou isn’t completely satisfied with her job; she keeps com¬ plaining of a ringing in her ears. Franklin High Schools’ boys’ basketball team is undefeated after three years of training under Coach Herman Nichols. Herman has been voted " Coach of the Year” for two consecutive years. The State Line Beauty shop, owned, operated and swept out by Marie Webb is one of the most progressive business establishments of this district. After graduating from State College where he majored in agriculture, Frank Miller is now raising hybrid watermelons on his plantation at Piper’s Gap. As for our class philosopher, Joe Fulk, he is Vice-Admiral of the Third Fleet now stationed at Buck Shoals. Pond. One of our Senior girls, Virginia Keye, be¬ came interested in F.B.I. work and is now per¬ sonal secretarv to J. Edgar Hoover. Betty Jo Roberson, also working for the F.B.I. has been sent to Nova Scotia as their chief agent there. Billy Norman has realized his ambition of becoming a truck driver. He hauls peaches and tomatoes. (We notice they’re not all under the food group either.) Our housewives, Myrtle Fulk, Lorine Hall and Betty Ruth Bunker seem to be very contented in their lovely homes. Betty Ruth finished her nurses training before she got married but decided upon a career of homemaking as well. Lorine’s six kids keep her pretty busy and Myrtle’s twins, Coy and Roy are the exact images of their father. Ray Creed is making quite a name for him¬ self as art editor of the New York Times. How¬ ever, Ray still likes to take time out to draw cow¬ boys as he used to at F.H.S. We see Rosa Nichols in Washington, D. C., a captain in the United States Waves. Serving efficiently as Secretary of the Lb S. Treasury we find Helen Stone. Helen says she got her experience while handling the pennies of the Senior Class of ’49. Stanley Rose, our class bachelor, has finally found a way to escape the wiles of women. He joined the Army and was sent to China as a military delegate. Albert McHone’s job sometimes gets him in the State Pen. Don’t worry, he is the electrician and sometimes the Electric Chair gets out of commission. That great dairyman Charles Sykes is be¬ coming a millionaire with his 3 00 head of goats. He has trained them so that they give milk in tin cans and then eat the cans. As for Benton Wagoner, he is now proprietor of The Slabtown General Store, " Dealer in Feeds, Seeds, Notions and Lotions.” Highland Park Memorial Hospital is pro¬ gressing under the leadership of Head Nurse, Billie Gentry. Station W.P.A.Q. has been taken over by Charles Chappell. He is sole owner, chief engineer, announcer, and janitor. Our mascots Mickey Anne Sutphin and Larry Fulk are attending F.H.S. Mickey Anne wants to be a nurse and what should Larry want to be but a doctor. By 1959 we think the members of the Class of ’49 shall have advanced considerably in this wide-wide world. Don’t you?
