Joyce Hi 11 CLASS TESTATOR PROPHECY They told me I must prophecy, but alas I am no prophet. As I pondered all weak and weary, I tried to dip into the future to see what my classmates would be doing ten years hence. As I nodded before the firelight I closed my eyes to think. Soon I was fast asleep. Suddenly it seemed as if 1 were wide awake and I saw my classmates as they will be in 1964. First, I saw Elsie Hodges Davenport settled down at home caring for theirfour children while Leonard is the mana¬ ger and owner of Davenport ' s Meat Market. Jill Laughridge is back at F.H.S. coaching basketball. All the players seem more interested, especially the boys. The Slabtown and Welch Bridge Community Beauty Shops are owned and operated by Wanda France and Dorothy Sechriest. They have more customers than they can accommodate. Norma Faye McHone is secretary to the Governor of North Carolina. She got her start by helping in the F.H.S. office in 1954. Roy Beasley has the biggest duck and fish foundation in dog-patch. He got his start from the little pond he had down below his house while he was in high school. Our housewives are Mildred Easter, Sarah Jones, and Ernestine Collins. Mildred finally finished dairy training at Lawson ' s Dairy, but she is now caring for the children. She likes this better than tending to cows. Sarah is very happy living in the Cana Virginia Hotel tending to the six kids while Willie is striving for a promotion as dish washer at the State Line. Ernestine is being kept busy tending to their twins, Jim and Joe, and working on the Cole Farm, Route 10, New York, trying to keep Paul fat. Jewell Holder and Cleo Stanley are married and living down in the heart of Bunker Woods farming and building a large barn to take care of their livestock. They spend their night time tending to the six kids. If you go to Washington, stop by the basement of the White House and see Christine Angel doing secretarial work for the President. She got her experience by graduating from Franklin Business College at Toast. Jean Williamson is now employed by the Slabtown Music Conservatory giving music lessons to all young people over fifty. Oklas Harold and Leroy Hawks now have a used car lot located near Buck Shoals Pond. They have a lot of trade. They got their mechanical experience by working on Okie ' s car, pushing it up hills and riding down them. Mac Gwyn is driving a corn meal truck from Toast to Pine Ridge. He has about five customers, stopping from house to house, to serve them. After graduating from State College where he majored in agriculture, Donald Frye is now raising White Legorn chickens on his chicken farm at Lowgap. Blackberry Cabs are owned and operated by Woodrow Jackson, located at Bannertown - day and night service. " Quick Service Always " is Woodrow ' s slogan. A new addition to Bill Monroe ' s Band is Willard Niston. He plays the mandolin, banjo, or guitar. He started his career at F . H.S. playing between the acts of plays. James Wood is owner and operator of the Toast Meat Market. Specializing in horse legs and hamburger meat. Joe Bunker, James Shelton, and Wilburn Blackburn are driving airplanes for the Piper ' s Gap Airlines owned by David Hall and Hampton Beamer. They make non-stop trips from Piper ' s Gap to the airport in Dobson. The patients at Pilot Mountain Hospital are under the care of Shirley Draughn, Sue McKinney, Joyce Hill, and Joy Mae Thomas. Not many patients, but what few there are, are really sick. The nurses received their training at the Hunter Hospital in France. Iris Nichols is back at F.H.A. teaching the first grade after completing her education at Guilford College. All the kids seem to love their pretty teacher. Mona Scott, Dot Beasley, and Mary Lou Bowman are charming hostesses working with Eastern Airlines. Their headquarters are in New York City. Jackie Coe is married and living with Roy who is in the Air Force in France. She is also taking her basic training now, while Nancy Hooker is learning to swim along behind the ship of which Tommy is Captain. Pat Hall is still rambling around working here and there. She can ' t decide whether to settle down now or not, or which man she wants. Pat Jones is very happy now. She is married to Bobby. They have four children. Pat is serving as bookkeeper for Bobby at his service station. Roland Jones is now owner and operator of the Plastic Plant. After being a steady employee for ten years he final ly made it. Bobby Gunter is working at a barber shop shining shoes. He got his start from his nickname " Shine " at dear old Franklin. Bobby Hodges, who is coaching football at Lambsburg, has won all his football games so far, and has been voted the most outstanding coach for five consecutive years.
