Better known as “Billy” or “Slick” is Star Halfback and Captain of season of ' 21 -’22 football squad, pitcher for baseball team and an all round good athlete and sport. Billy has never been known to worry over any¬ thing and although he never established any speed records in handing in parallels, short stories and themes, he got there just the same. “Slick,” old boy, we wish you the best of luck and expect great things from you.

JAMES BEDELL FRANKLIN “Let the ' world wag as it will, I will he gay and happy still” James, better known as “Ham”, is first among the mechanics, first among the sports, first among the “Carpenter " and last to be forgotten. He is popular with everyone in High School and has our best wishes that some day he will become a great mechanic. You carry with you the best wishes of the class of ' 22.

You just as well make up your mind when around her to not be sad or gloomy, for she is the kind that will cheer you up, no matter how bad you have the blues. “Laugh and the world laughs with you” seems to be her motto. She is very quick tempered and likes to have her way but her sunny disposition makes her easily brought over.

She never gets worried about anything, especially about examinations. Fannie hopes to get her A. B. before she stops school and if present indications are right she’ll get there. Fannie is a good sport and a good friend. If she once makes up her mind there’s no changing her. Senior Literary Society, ’21 -’22. 14 WILLIAM RUSSELL " If at first you don’t succeed try, try again and then fail” William must love old F. H. S., or rather the class of ’22, for he waited a whole year to graduate with our class. William is one who takes life as it comes and never worries over anything. We hope that he will con¬ tinue to walk with “Pep " . Tennis Club, ’22; Athletic Association, ’ 21 -’ 22 . CHARLES ALLEN ARMSTRONG “Small in size but big in resonance” The smallest of the senior class hut always ready to say something to make someone laugh. He could not be beat at quoting French quotations and as for noise he is right on the job. Charles being the greatest salesman in our class, may some day become a broker. We wish you good luck.

Although Elizabeth lays no claim to outstanding fame she is one of those steady hearted people who is always “there with the goods’’ at the proper time. Eliza¬ beth never joined us until the fourth year, but she has gained a host of friends and stands true to F. H. S. Senior Literary Society, ’21-’22. KATHRYN ELLIS HOOPER “She is a scholar and a ripe and good one” Behold Kath ryn ! To know her is to know one who knows and doesn’t know she knows. Like most people who shine, she sees herself only as a small dim candle. But everybody knows she isn’t even on speak ng terms with that dire name “failure " . Peep over Kath’s shoulder as she reads these words and you will see the modest blushes rise to her cheek even at this mild praise. Twentieth Century Literary Society, ’ 19-’20 ; Senior Literary Society, ' 21 -’22. 1 6 LUCY WALLACE WALKER “W ords, not deeds” If it takes nerve, get Lucy. If there is anything that any one in school is afraid to do tell Lucy and she’ll do it. She is one of the best natured girls in school. You never see her mad. The senior class is proud to have a jolly good sport like Lucy to keep up the spirits of their class. We have no fear for her future, but wish her much success in all her undertakings.

DORIS CARNEAL “She ’who studies long never flunks.” Just imagine Doris flunking on any subject. She is one who is never satisfied with just passing, so always succeeds in getting a high mark. The Sewing Class will lose one of its most diligent anti quiet workers when Doris leaves. We know no one who likes “Olives” so well, for she is seldom seen without one. We wish you much success at the Normal next year.

From the day she entered High School she has been a never failing source of energy, good will and enthusiasm for any class or school undertaking. Ruth is a new sort of “Jack-of-all-trades”, one who succeeds in any undertaking whether it he shooting goals in basket-ball, sewing or laughing. In spite of her love for a good time she can work as hard as she plays and we predict for her a bright future.

Bright, attractive and popular. She takes life easy and always has a good time. When ever we hear the ex¬ pression, “Imagine not passing,” we know Libba is near. The first thing we notice about her is her smile. This " Young” senior has a winning personality as well as ability to conquer what ever she attempts. We shall always remember Libba as a bright spot in our class life.

She is a good sport and is always ready for any¬ thing that may come up. When ever there is any fun in school she is in for it, from somewhere comes a giggle and who could it be but Becky? Some times things do not exactly suit her, but she finally comes round all right. But we can assure you that the Senior Class was made much merrier by you being a member.

The secret of this mystery is her popularity. She is never still nut always running around with some one. But you find her most often with a baseball star. But do not understand by this that Kate never studies, for she is the Valedic¬ torian of our class. We suppose the reason must be that she doesn ' t need to. We wish Kate, that you would give us the secret of your success.

MARIAN M. WEEDON “She cannot try to look demure, hut in spite of all she does , she shows a twinkling eye.” Marian is the Salutatorian, as well as the Editor-in-Chief of the “Rapahanoc " . But when it comes to having a good time Marian is right there. She is a good sport as well as a good student. She has been one of our shining stars ever since we launched out from the first grade. And we are expecting great things from Marian when she under¬ takes her life’s work as a “Domestic Science Teacher " .

GRAFTON GREENLAW " Better late than ne-ver”. Mr. Link has just finished calling the roll when the door is softly opened and in creeps Grafton. But all the same Grafton is the best of sports and with his “Buick” is a great favorite of the ladies.

And as for acting, she makes Norma Tal- madge take a back seat. Hildah is a good sport and a staunch friend. There will be some broken hearts in F. H. S. when you leave " He” old dear.

What fair girl is this coming to Fredericks¬ burg High School? Why it is " John Ruff” from the Normal School. John is a splendid student and always succeeds in passing her examinations. John’s greatest pleasure is to worry Louise Peyton in English class and talk with Jeffries across the aisle, when Mr. Link isn ' t looking. Everyone wishes for John a bright future. Member of the " Senior " Literary So¬ ciety, ’21-’22. 9 ? MARY LOUISE PEYTON “They never taste who always drink, They always talk who never think” When it comes to athletics Lou is right there. When Louise is guarding there is no chance for the forward. Not only in athle¬ tics does Louise shine but in her classes as well. She is very fond of bugs, but we fear she is partial to the “ROACH”. We do not fear for Louise’s future for we know she will always be a success where ever she may go.

ALLIE PRITCHETT " Of ambition she has plenty, of brain she has more” Allie is a quiet member of our class. She seldom speaks, but when she does she means business. Allie is a star member of the Second Year Domestic Science Class, and from the looks of the house which she plan¬ ned and built for her examination she will be an " Architectress.” Allie, we wish you a bright future.

Camilla, better known as “Caramel, " is one of our Basket-ball Stars, playing center, on the Girls ' Varsity Team. Besides being a basket-ball star she is one of our cham¬ pion debaters, always winning her points in any argument. She can usually convince you if she is allowed to use her hands freely but if the time ever comes when Camilla can not wave her hands she will cease to talk. If such a thing is possible Camilla may be con¬ sidered as a “man killer " .

He is quiet, but all genii are. “Once your friend always your friend’’. As Courtney, in the Senior play, “Next Door,” he was a “real go”, and if he makes love off the stage as he does on it, he certainly will be a “ladies’ man”. Norman’s chief aim in life is to be a Medical Missionary and what better aim could any man have?

May she ever bear with honor And her sons and daughters bless, The flag that flies above her — Our beloved F. H. S. 27 Preside} fs Address A S you all may know, we have gathered here tonight in order to relate our past four years of High School life. The custom of previous classes has been to carry out this programme in a most formal and dignified manner. Our class—one that has main¬ tained a reputation of possessing originality—has met to present these facts to you in an informal atmosphere. We decided to hold a class reunion and to embark upon a voyage. Therefore, 1 am going to ask you to imagine that you are on a sea of memories with us, during which time we shall endeavor to discuss among our classmates the events that have been, and the incidents that are to be, so that you who are here tonight with us may hear of the trials and tribulations that have befallen our paths since we were Freshmen. We are not the largest class that has graduated from this institu¬ tion, but we can truly boast of the fact that we have not fallen below the average in any phase of school life, whether social or scholastic. As I have said before, our class has been noted for its originality. I think it would be fitting and proper at this time to relate a few instances in which this occurred. It has been customary in the past for the Juniors to give a dance in honor of the Seniors, but because of the rule of the Board of Education prohibiting dancing, our enter¬ tainment consisted of a “Class Funeral” and a banquet. Such a radical departure from the usual plan of entertainment illustrates clearly what a great power for good the class of 1922 has always been. And again tonight we are departing from the usual custom of our predecessors in the presentation of our class evening exercises. It would be possible to continue indefinitely describing the superiority of this latest graduating class from Fredericksburg High School, but in doing so it would be preventing you from enjoying the remainder of this entertainment, which is of a practically new 28 Rapahanoc ’ F wenty-tw o style. It represents another, and possibly the last, improvement which the class of 1922 has inaugurated. It is my great pleasure as President of the class of 1922 to wel¬ come you here tonight as our guests, to enjoy with us our reunion as the programme passes from gladness to sadness—we appreciate the presence of each and every one and extend to all a most cordial welcome. —Alwyn Hundley, Jr. 29 Ra palm noc ’Twenty-two Salutatory A FAVORED thought with poets and philosophers is to liken our lives to a voyage upon an unknown ocean, whose farthest shore is eternity. I will adopt their idea tonight and liken our commencement to a voyage upon the sea of life. Our parents, teachers and friends are gathered here tonight to bid us God-speed, for in truth the class of 1922 are launching their barks upon their first real voyage. All the years of infancy were guided by a mother’s hands who shaped the timbers that were later fashioned and sup¬ ported by our honest teachers. Each ship tonight contains timbers that were seasoned in an atmosphere of honest toil. Many lessons have been learned that will guide us through the storms and fogs that will await us, but if we fling aloft the pennant of hope and take with us the compass of truth and honesty, we may christen her “Success.” Let us hope that we have learned to row against the tide, not drift with it, for ’tis rowing, not drifting, that makes men and women of us. We wish to thank both our parents and teachers for their help in the building of our vessel; and trust that at the end of life’s journey each member of the class of 1922 may anchor far from the isle of unrest and glide safely within the harbor of peace. —Marion M. Weedon. 30 History of Class of 1922 T HE voyage of the class of 1922 began with the launching of our ship, “The Adventure”, from Port Frederick, on Septem¬ ber 9, 1918. Each passenger boarded the ship with many fears and horrors of the sea, for they that had traveled the same ocean in times past brought back many startling tales of examinations and foreign languages that had to be mastered while on board the ship, and the many hours that had to be spent in the “Brig” for the least offense, such as chewing gum or being disorderly in public. But these tales did not discourage these adventurous passengers for they had planned and prepared for this voyage, and “SUCCESS” was their aim. With Prof. E. F. Birckhead as Admiral and Mrs. Courtney as the faithful Captain of our group, we sailed forth with ardent hopes into the seas of Algebra, Latin, History, English and Science, with a chance to either “Sink” or “Swim”. It required much unusually hard work on the part of the officers to keep these new passengers in order; in fact it was whispered among the officers and crew that the “Freshmen”, as we were called, were the worst that had ever been on the ship. But then at first we could not be expected to settle down because we found many conditions that were not to our liking, so we started at once to let others know we were present. Just as we were getting familiar with our surroundings everything was upset by the “Flu” epidemic among the passengers and crew; by this we were forced to anchor and leave the ship, in which we were given one month to be victorious in the battle for “Life, Liberty and the Pur suit of Happiness”. At the end of this time we were summoned to file into rank, and the rest of that part of the voyage was completed in safety. The next year we started our voyage again upon the “Adventure” with bouyant hopes, but the old ship soon became unsafe, and we were forced to land and board another, which was called “The 31 Rapahanoc ’T wenty-two Hopeful " . This time we sailed from Port Elementary in a pretty ship but with little room. Our new captain was Mrs. W. N. Blake, who stood for our rights with grim determination. The pleasures aboard this ship were few, but we endured it all, for we were told that this was only a temporary one, and that a new ship was bei ng built, which was strong and comfortable, as well as beautiful, in which we could finish our voyage. Of course we grumbled and complained over our hardships, but that only made it worse, for here we were out upon the Sea of Caesar, which was the roughest one we had yet encountered, and the worst part of it yet was we had to go through this sea from 4:50 to 5:30 in the afternoons. But worst of all, we were calmly riding the Sea of Algebra when along came a big breaker in the form of Geometry, and almost swept us back to Port Frederick, but we were rescued by the worthy assistance of Captain A. P. Link. As we were nearing the end of our journey for this year we celebrated by a big party, at which the costumes shocked all officers on board, and ever since then we have been confronted by a big sign on the smoke stack, “No Dancing Allowed”. The next year, the wind having blown us back to “Port Elemen¬ tary " , we sailed forth again with flags dying and with hopes of soon reaching our final destination. But we had only been sailing a few weeks when Admiral Birckhead rushed up on deck with his usual composure, saying the old boat was sinking but the long looked for new one was in sight. Of course the excitement was great until we were all landed on board the new ship, which was christened “F. H. S. " The next week or two was spent in becoming familiar with our new surroundings, which were very beautiful. The only fault we could find in our new ship was the lack of a gymnasium, for the only gym. we had was Jim Johnson, the steward, who was continually warning us that this was a new boat and was not to be defaced. On September 12, 1921, we sailed forth from Port Potters Field in F. H. S. on our last voyage. Never before had we felt so great our importance, as now we were termed “Seniors " . Captain Rhea 32 was our guide, but she became dis -gusted and de- parted. After her departure Captain Link took command, and has guided us ever since. We thought we were experienced sailors by this time, but we had never met such billows as awaited us in our last voyage. There was one ray of hope, and that was our faithful counsellor and friend, M rs. Link, to whom we always went for advice. Many weary days were spent on deck with Mr. Manger, our physical director, taking our daily exercises, which the officers thought were positively neces¬ sary; but through his diligent training many athletes have developed. Mr. Steck, a new officer, also joined us on this voyage, to safely guide us through the Seas of Science and Math. At last our voyage is nearing its end. Come what may there will be indelibly stamped in our minds pictures of the life we led while here, and this will serve as a solace and a consolation for the bitter thought of separation. To the class as a whole I, as historian, offer my best wishes for the future, and pledge my congratulations in all successes that may come to members of the class of which I am proud to be a member, at the same time sympathizing with the failures that are inevitable in life. In the confectionary assortment of life there are bound to be some bitter sweets, and these enable us to better appreciate the real delights and pleasures of our existance on this earth. My advice is to keep on and on, in the commendable manner in which this class has at all times comported itself. 33 Rapahanoc ’ V uuenty-two Class Prophecy (All on board ship—Enter Rebecca.)

The end is like a tragedy, Because we all do have to part. But our love, it is far greater, Than it was at the very start. II The scene is laid in the High School, At the dear old F. II. S. Of all the schools in this wide world, She is far dearer than the rest. Around the school is woven, The Memories of four short years, Of all our work and labor, Of all our trials and fears. Ill If only some kind Fairy, IVould just wave her magic wand, And give us hack our Senior Year, Of which we are so very fond. Life is real and we must take. Just what is lotted out to us, If its a great or humble task, Without a single word nr fuss. IF The first act was on Main Street, In that old historic hotel, In which our fondest memories, To us do of time seem to dwell. As Freshmen then we alt did say. Although we are the “Baby” class, We’ll right up to victory, And win our spurs at last. 41 Rapahanoc T wenty-two v And when we reached our Sophomore Year, With all its smoke, and snow ' and ice; They drove us to the training school, Which we considered far from nice. It worked us all so very hard. We wondered if we were alive; The hours were awful late and long, Making us go from eight ' till five. VI The next year , when we were Juniors, They gave us a brand new school, To pay them back, we did our best, To keep each little golden rule. W e were little George Washingtons, Who said, " I cannot tell a lie”; That’s why we got such reputations, Down in dear old Fredericksburg High. VII And then we came to be Seniors, That awfully dignified class — We made the very grandest record, And every test and exam did pass. In athletics we did our share, To give old F. II. S. great fame, We labored, sacrificed and fought, To make ‘‘SENIORS” a worthy name. Till But now our Dear Old Alma Mater, The time comes when we must leave you, And go out in the world alone , But never fear, we will be true. The tears start in our eyes when we Think of the lonely years ahead — When each will go his separate way, Fighting manfully, this sorrow and dread. IX Then next in thought, and next in love Comes the Faculty, ‘‘Our friends in deed”; They taught us and fought for us each day, And helped us through each trouble and need. Their kind faces we’ll see no more, Except in our peaceful dreams; But if they ' d look in our hearts They ' d find, love, like radiant sunbeams. X And then comes our Sister Classes, The Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen; Who we leave to finish our tasks, They’ll do it if any one can. And now little brothers and sisters, And big brothers and sisters too, You realize the responsibility , And the things, we expect you to do. XII XI But now its time the play must end, Father Time is pulling the curtain; We hope its been a true success — It’s been to us, of that we’re certain. But first we request of you men and women, And others that we are leaving behind — Deal tenderly and fairly, with the F. H. S. And to our Dear Alma Mater be kind. So Farewell, to our Dear Alma Mater, Farewell, to our teachers so true; Farewell, to our Sister Classes — Farewell, for ever and ever, to you. This is the message we leave to night, As the Senior Class of ’22; Farewell to every Faithful one , And to all our Loved ones, ADIEU. 42 —Ruby Dillard. Rapahanoc ’Twenty-two Valedictory P ERHAPS experience has taught you far better than words can express it, the mingled feelings of joy and sorrow which animate us tonight. Joy because we are about to commence our first voyage on the sea of life. Sorrow because we have come to the cross roads, the parting of the ways. Our feelings of sorrow would be intensified if we allowed these thoughts to exist, that after tonight the associations of the past four happy years must cease, that after tonight we shall never again be united as a class, but henceforth, “Each must paddle his own canoe”. But we do not allow these thoughts to engulf us, so joy, not sorrow, predominates. And as we look into the future, with the optimism of youth, and see the vast seas of success rolling on before us, we are eager to begin this voyage. Tonight many of us, assume for the first time the responsibility of steering our own ships, steering them on towards the various stars of success, shining for us far out upon the horizon of life’s great sea. The majority of us have some purpose in life, some far off star which gives us the incentive to press onward and upward. We have realized to make a success of our lives, we must have a purpose to be kept always in view, for should we fail to have some port towards which to steer our vessels, what can prevent us from drifting with the tide? Drifting on in an idle, worthless, thoughtless way, till we’ve drifted too far and can never return. Till we’ve left forever the seas of success and sailed on beyond the line of hope, into the relentless seas of a useless life. Of course I do not intend to convey the impression that those of our little crew who have set sail with a purpose in view will find the seas all plain sailing, for such is not possible, but they will find strength in their purposes to withstand the storms, and after each 43 battle with fate on the sea of life, they will renew their efforts with still greater determination to win. In bidding farewell, I wish to say, if there are any of us who thus far have not selected a star towards which to strive, may we feel it our duty to select a purpose, for it is essential that we, “Li ve for something, have a purpose, And that purpose keep in view; Drifting like a helmless vessel, Thou canst ne’er to life be true. Half the wrecks that strew Life’s ocean. If some star had been their guide, They would now be riding safely, But they drifted with the tide.” To our faculty, who have toiled so patiently to help us, we express our gratitude, and sincerest wishes for a joyful future. And now fellow classmates, the time has come to bid farewell. May you find all opportunities awaiting you. Let the remembrances of the past four happy years be ever fresh and sweet to look back upon. May prosperity attend each member of the Class of ’22! —Katherine Wayne Gouldin. 44 Rapahanoc T wenty-two Song Dear Alma Mater, ' tis time for us to part, And we know as ive go our tears must start, Before we leave you, a smile once more you see And it will always be our treasured memory.

M rs. Courtney was our first class teacher, and helped us to solve the many perplexing questions which confronted us in this new world. We had started to school in Hotel Frederick but before we had adjusted ourselves to our new surroundings we were moved to the Elementary School. Here to our great consternation we were made to go to school from twelve-thirty until live-thirty in the afternoon. During this year we made our reputation in athletics which we have never lost. “Tiny” and “Jebby” became stars in Basketball, and since then Esther and Katharine have made themselves famous. Besides many of our boys have made expert football and baseball players. Being Freshmen, we did not realize the great seriousness of being High School students, so that our first mid-term examinations came on us unawares and caused many of us to wish we were back in the grades again. However, when we assembled again in 1920 as Sophomores, under Mrs. Blake, we had all decided that High School was not so bad after all. We were compelled to start in the Elementary School again, but this time it did not seem so hard as we were looking forward to soon being in our new High School building. Our hopes were not in vain, and late in the fall we moved into our much needed and long dreamed of High School. This building seemed especially fine to us after suffering from so many inconveniences and was greatly appreciated by both teachers and students. When we next met as Juniors w T e found our number greatly diminished. Many of our former class mates had fallen behind while others had left us and started to the Normal School. But we were fortunate in having Mrs. Courtney again for our class teacher. This has not, however, been an uneventful year. The first great event occurred the last part of December when amid the excitement of Christmas holidays and mid¬ term examinations M iss Rhea left us to start to school in Tennessee. The second was the coming of Mr. Link to take Miss Rhea’s place. Since then we have spent our leisure hours in studying the essay, and the Wallace Library is always full of High School hoys and girls seeking information on English. But we are all looking forward to meeting again next year in the class we have long worked to reach, and being called by the dignified name of “Seniors”. -—Edith Janney. 50 SOPHOMORE O U 51 » 52 SOPHOMORE CLASS Sophomore Class Motto: Excelsior.

Just read over the history of the Freshmen Class of 192Q-’21, in last year’s annual and you’ll find where most of us have received our source of knowledge. During the Freshman year we withstood the taunts of the other classes of the High School and in the autumn of 1921 we, the detested “rats”, returned to school as Sophomores. Can anybody express the joy of calling somebody else a “rat”? Although our ranks grew thinner last year we enlisted new companions and classmates this year until at present our class is fifty-two strong. We have tried to display our brilliancy not only in our classes but also in athletics. In this most of us are conceited enough to think we have succeeded. Our Faculty, self-sacrificing, always has helped us faithfully thru this “terrible” Sophomore year. For doing so we ask they be awarded one “Polar Bear” and a bag of salted peanuts. During this school year three changes have been made in our Faculty. Miss Rhea left Christmas to take up higher English work in a University. Mr. Link, our Math, teacher of last year, returning to teach English. Just after Christmas Miss Britian, our commercial teacher, after considering the very serious subject, matrimony, became Mrs. Sharp, leaving a vacancy which was filled by Miss Johnson, another teacher of last year. The Monitor system, for the study hall, having been tried out, the School Board brought back, to the delight of all, Mrs. Blake. Now, after this year of trials and tribulations, pleasures and successes, study and play, laughter and tears, the curtain must fall on Act II of our High School life. After the interlude of “dear old summer time” may we all return to play a part in Act III—Juniors. —Muriel Ione Euliss. 54 The Sophomores While passing through the Hall of Fame I saiv the name, And wondered how it there came; What valiant deed had they done ? What great race had they won? That they should place their name In the Hall of Fame. Still mystified, I turned for information To one who stood by my side; I asked, do you know? Can you enlighten me Concerning this mystery? And tell me how it came, this name, In the Hall of Fame. “Yes,” said he, “listen, and you Shall hear the history, The name which you see is heralded from yonder world; It tells of ambition, and of hope, And, even of despair on life ' s rugged slope; Along the trail, you will find those who failed. But those who overcame, brought the name To the Hall of Fame.” T, myself, am a Sophomore,” he said, And pride in the face could be read; “Excelsior” is our motto, which means Still higher we must go. If we could be worthy of the Gold and Blue, There are yet great things we must do, If we would deserve the name that came, In the Hall of Fame. —A Friend. 55 This Hitteth the Nail on the Head Geraldine Anderson: " Her locks are like the sunset " .

Everyone assembled in the corridor of our High School until all were present. Then the doors to the Study Hall were opened and we entered. The long tables of the Hall were arranged, each with a number and a game such as “Dominoes,” “Old Maids,” “Authors,” “Checkers " and “Parcheesi”. On a little table near the door was a small box with tiny red hearts, all with a number to a table which had the number corresponding to that on his heart, and there was a partner for him. There were four at a table and the winning couple moved to the next table. Mr. Link had a small alarm clock and every ten minutes it would ring, a signal for the winners to move. Even the Faculty or better Chaperons indulged in these games. Mrs. Courtney liked the “Old Maid” table so well that she just could not leave it and Mr. Steck was quite enthused over the “Dominoes”. After we had finished “progressing” we proceeded to a feast in the basement in couples, those being partners who had last played together. We filed into the cooking room and there we found a most original and delicious cafeteria supper. The color scheme of orange and garnet was carried out, these being the Senior Class colors. The girls placed the refreshments upon the trays which the boys carried. Having finished “collecting” we took seats in the hall. Looking over our refresh¬ ments we discovered sandwiches, Presbyterian pudding, orangeade, a lemon in which there was a stick of candy, cakes and lastly a candy boutonniere, as souvenirs. It was very comical to look around and see everyone puffing and sucking on a stick of candy, working so hard to force the lemon juice through. Our new piano was played and everyone tried their best at singing, until suddenly “Home Sweet Home” was played and so we left for home, after a most enjoyable evening.

Those assembled were: Vance Dannehl, Webster Sullivan, Dorothy Boulware, Casey Armstrong, Julia Troian, Blanche Russell, Virginia Melton, Charles Hunter, Fitzhugh Rowe, Lother Dodd, Duff Green, Warren Farmer, Emmett Thompson, Charles Powell, Wirt Shelton, Thomas Payne, Wilfred Embrey and Bettie Billingsley. This group has managed to stick together as far as First Year High School. In the second grade only two joined us. They were: Helen Van Denberg and Stuart Lesher, who are very good students. When we went back to school in 1916 six new members were enrolled for the year. These were: Elizabeth Cadot, John Stone, Edna McGaha, Mary Dunn, Alice Scott and Fanny Scott. Three cast their fate with us in the fourth grade. They were: Nellie Herndon, Grace Dunnington and Evelyn May. In the fifth grade Marian Reid, Virginia Stevens and Josephine Fisher came to us. We went on to the sixth grade and found the following classmates: Louis Arm¬ strong, Donald Whitbeck, George Bowie, Fleming Ray, Sarah Orrock and Lemuel Houston. Last year the seventh grade was made the Junior High. A few were added to the original group, Trueman Carneal, Robert Kilian and Thelma Moody. Last year a cloud was cast over our class by the sudden death of Wilfred Embrey. This year there were twenty-four new scholars to enroll: Edgar Bernard, Alton Embrey, Alex Gayle, Richard Hallberg, Charlie Hooper, George Morris, Samuel Perry, Robert Sale, Maude Berry, Elizabeth Cropp, Jennie Garrett, Helen Perticone, Marguarite Williamson, Pearl Barr, Edwin Ashleigh, Newton Bourne, David Burton, H. F. Crismond, Jr., Edward Harrison, Randolph Satterwhite, Alvin Fitzhugh, Harry Dillion, Catherine Minor and Agnes Silver. We wish to call attention to two Freshies—botli from the country—Agnes Silver, from Spotsylvania, who has averaged 100 on conduct and from 98 to 100 in her studies; Harry Dillion, coming from King George in his flivver every morning, is a splendid all round athlete, and our handy man. “Call on Harry if you need help.” 63 The first troubles of the Class in High School were Latin and Algebra. ' These subjects for sometime were mysteries to most of the class. Finally, owing to the natural brilliance of the students and the close attention to the teachers, for which this class is famous, the paths of knowledge soon became like an open book. Last Fall at the Hallowe’en party, which the class gave, the study hall was gaily decorated. Nearly everyone had on Hallowe’en costumes that kept everybody guessing who was which and which was who. We spent most of the time playing wink and dancing “The Virginia Reel”. About 9 o’clock refreshments were served. The boys were mainly interested in finding out how many plates of ice cream could be gotten without discovery. The party was a “howling” success and everybody had a fine time. At the end of the first term many friends were torn apart by the ability for flunking, which was the fate of many bright pupils. There were many trials and tribulations after the “exams” because of tbe “conflicks” which were always staring you in the face. At the beginning of the year Marian Scott left us to go to Washington to a Catholic School. This we are very sorry to say broke up the “Scott Trio”, but there are two left who are trying to see which can get the highest marks. Just before Xmas Marian Reed became tired of our cold, little city and went way across the ocean to a hot climate, Honolulu, where her father is stationed. We have organized a girls’ basket-ball team which has been very unlucky. We have not won a game yet, but we are going to get there after awhile. With only an out door court to play on we cannot make much headway. Thus endeth the chronicle of our First Year. We have done little this year, but look out for us next year and the years to follows. -—Bettie Billingsley, -—Thomas Payne. 64 65 66 Freshman Class T wentv-two History of the Class I N IQ 15 we assembled for the first time. We were divided into two groups, one taught by Miss Perrin, and one by Miss Keim. The two groups together were composed of Starvos Calmos, James Biscoe, Rebecca Leacock, Alma Fines, Dora Farmer, Charles Snellings, Raymond Sale, Vivian Jones, Willard Layton, Edwin Sullivan, Everett Cole, Edith Boulware, Brawner Bolling, Dorothy Jones, Sidney Snellings, Louise Garnett and Bernard Stone. These have been promoted every year, while others have been left behind. William Brown and Nannie Goodloe joined us in the second grade, bringing our number to twenty. In our third grade we added to our group Margaret Garth and E. B. White. With the opening of school in 1918 Frances Thornton, Carrol Woodard, Nancy King and Katherine Stoffregen came to us. Edith Larkin, Pauline White, Evelyn Stevens, Alvin Favill, Francis Orrock and Robert Stevens were added to our group in the fifth grade. Seven new pupils answered to roll call in our sixth year. They were, Frances Lightener, Martha Cable, James Southall, Lillie Harry, Evelyn Moody, Virginia Tompkins and Elizabeth Chesley. We thus acquired our second Elizabeth. Carrol Woodard left us at the end of the sixth grade going to Warrenton. He entered again at the middle of the seventh grade. Virginia Pancoast, Clem Sale, William Stevens, Ruth Heflin, Willard Allison, Goldie Kidwell, Robert Tompkins, Arneda Sullivan, Willard Downs, Laura Molter, Francis Hicks, Frances Ray, John Maker, Mildred Sacery, Julia Brewer, Harold Brown, Clara Freeman, Archer Brown and Helmet Pepmire entered our class, bringing our number to fifty-eight. One of the most important events in our school life was coming to the new High School. We like the High School very much, but at first it was hard to get accustomed to changing teachers, etc. We defy any class to beat us in having more pupils with the same name than we have. We have Franc (i or e)s, Hicks, Thornton, Orrock, Lightener, Ray, Willard Layton, Downes and Allison. We met our first examinations this year, and we should not like to tell the results of the meeting. James Biscoe has from the time he began school, been one of our best speakers, and coming to the High School has not stopped his speeches. Francis Orrock is still our " 10 o’clock scholar”, having been tardy sixteen times in one month. We all hope to get promoted to the First Year High, but looking at our examina¬ tion marks, we doubt it. 67 —Bernard Stone. Ivan Y ES,” concluded mother, folding my letter and replacing it in the envelope. “Yes, 1 believe you had better go to the house party; Colonel Nevil and your father used to be great chums when they were boys, and though I’ve never met him, I’ve heard he is a splendid man.” 1 made no reply to this verdict, but went slowly to my room, took the letter from my pocket and reread it. It was from Sally Nevil, the only child of the wealthy and prominent Colonel Nevil. She wanted me to he one of her guests at a house party, and she reminded me of my promise to visit her, given in Washington the summer before, where I had met her. 1 knew nothing of the rest of the family, of course, as 1 had never seen them, but her mother joined her in the invitation, so 1 supposed it was all right, at least mother said it was. Hut I didn’t want to go, 1 never cared for rich, formal, and extremely fashionable society, and 1 had no desire to spend ten davs in it. Hut mother said I should go, and that settled it. At last the day of my departure came; 10:30, Friday morning, found me at the railway station, properly attired for traveling, in charge of two suitcases, my bull- terrier, “Sketer, " a box of candy, some flowers, and several magazines (for “Socks” had come to see me off), besides numerous directions about tickets and dignity. Sally met me at “South Bend” Station in a high-powered roadster, and appeared overjoyed to see me, though 1 had no idea why. “Oh,” she bubbled, “It’s just too splendid of you to come, father and mother are charmed, and my guests—they’re all so excited. I’ve given them such a glowing description of you, and oh! I’ve got such a wonderful surprise for you! It’s just too good to keep!” And with that she began to drive her car in a most reckless and rapid manner, while I smiled and told her how glad I was to be there, what a nice trip I’d had, and that I was sure that I was going to have a wonderful time. Just about this time we came to the foot of a hill, on top of which stood a magnificent brick mansion, surrounded by great trees. The place was charming, and looked just as 1 imagined the old manor houses of England looked. There was an extensive lawn about the house, used also for tennis and golf. As we drew near, the massive white pillows of the porch, the palms, the ferns, hammocks, cushions and swings, together with the number of idle people, caused me to believe it was some hotel. Hut as we reached the gate, Sally turned in, and swung up the drive. “Here,” she announced quietly, “is where I live; I hope you’ll like it—but it is tiresome.” 68 Rapahanoc T wentv-two “You live here!” I almost shrieked, but 1 caught myself in time to add, in a bored tone, “Why, yes, 1 think I shall like it; it is quite attractive.” At this moment we reached the house, and a bevy of people came out to meet us. I was formally introduced, and we exchanged the usual greetings. They were a widely different bunch, and I became so confused under my set smile, newly acquired sweet voice, and dignity, that I could have embraced the maid who came to show me to my rooms. Once there, I seated myself in my elegant surroundings, and tried to see how many names I could remember, the only one that 1 had the slightest recollection of was a titled somebody, who pronounced all his words as if they ended with an “h.” Later I found out this little Englishman was the “wonderful surprise.” Well things went fine for the first few days, 1 learned everyone’s name, and Col. and Mrs. Nevil were lovely to me, but I felt dreadfully unsophisticated, the rest of the guests did everything better than I did, and 1 wished that something would turn up that I could do to make them “sit up and take notice.” Though I knew they must think me green, 1 cou ld never have discovered it from their attitudes. They were such a tactful bunch. At last my opportunity came, just two days after I’d promised Sally to remain a few days longer. One evening, just before dinner, we were all seated in the library, when the Col. suggested we all take a horseback ride the next morning. “But,” he added, “if you all go some one will have to ride " Ben,” as there are only eight saddle horses on the place.” “Who’ll ride him, father?” protested Sally. “He hates men, and of course he isn’t safe for the girls.” “What’s the matter with Ben?” I asked. “Matter!” stormed the Colonel, “Why not only is he the handsomest and best saddle horse in the State, but he is the meanest piece of horse flesh 1 have ever laid eyes upon. He’s thrown or tried to throw every man on this place. He’s prac¬ tical ly worthless to me, and but for his beauty I’d sell him—no one dares use him.” Dinner was announced, and the horses were forgotten. The next morning the saddle horses were brought up to the porch by the grooms. They w’ere all fine animals, spirited but perfectly trained. The last one was a black, tall and slender, magnificently formed, with a white face and flashing eyes, clean limbed as a gazelle. Prancing, pawing, chaffing the bit, the black was brought around by Bill, a huge mulatto, who succeeded in holding “Ben” to the ground. 1 thought the horse looked familiar, and imagine my surprise, as he drew nearer, to recognize the black colt I had trained in Virginia. I couldn’t believe my eyes, and I was just getting over the shock, when a voice announced at my elbow, “That ' s ‘Ben,’ the black; come down and have a look at him. Bill has him securely.” 69 It was the Colonel who spoke, and we walked down to where “Ben” stood. Cautiously I approached “Ivan,” as “Ben " was known to me, and stretched out my hand. “Ivan,” I said, too low for the Colonel to hear me, “Ivan,” old boy.” He pricked up his ears, whinnied softly, and stretched out his head towards me. “Look out! " screamed the Colonel; “he’ll tear you to pieces!” The others had now arrived and I joined them. “Bally fine horse,” drawled the titled Englishman. “Say, old top,” addressing the Colonel, “do you mind if 1 ride him?” “Oh, no,” assured the Colonel, “only you had better take him to a pile of straw, the ground about here is very hard.” But with a confident smile, the Englishman approached “Ivan,” seized the pommel and swung into the saddle. “Ivan” plunged and reared, but Bill kept him under control. The others did not mount, only waited, nervously expectant. Ehe Englishman settled himself in the saddle, and I saw at once that in spite of his small size and feminine looks, he knew how to ride a horse. “All right, ole top,” he drawled, “let him go, I have him.” The negro released his grip on the bridle. “Ivan stood perfectly still for a second, then he humped his back, stiffened his legs and began to buck, and when “Ivan” began to buck things used to come off him. The girls screamed and the Colonel swore. Ivan took two stiff jumps and bucked with such ferocity that the poor, brave, little Englishman, who had kept his seat so well, was hurled through the air, and fell in a heap on the sod. The frightened crowd Hew to his aid but he wasn’t hurt, only a bit shaken up and rather dazed. Bill had now recaptured “Ivan " and the Colonel swore the horse should be shot. “Please, Colonel,” I said, coming forward, “let me ride him first.” I he Colonel looked at me and rubbed his eyes and looked again. “Very well,” he said, “bring him here, Bill.” 1 he astonished fellow led the horse up and renewed his grip on him. I went up to “Ivan and started to mount, the girls protested violently, and declared I should not do it. 1 he Colonel had no idea I was serious and grasping my arm he forced me to leave the horse. “But just let me sit on his back, " 1 begged. “Bill can hold him —please “Well, you may do that but you shall get off at once,” grudgingly said the Colonel. As I stepped up to “Ivan” and jumped in the saddle, everybody looked just as if they had expected me to be thrown clean out of North Carolina. 70 “Let go that horse’s head,” I demanded the negro in a low voice, “I can ride him. I broke him.” The negro meekly obeyed, the girls screamed and hid their faces, the men dashed forward, but too late, at a word from me, and a little pull on the bridle rein “Ivan” plunged, reared forward as I had taught him years before, and cantered off briskly down the drive. After driving to the gate I turned “Ivan,” rode back to the little group and remarked: “Colonel, you have a fine saddle horse here. I suppose you are very proud of him ?” Every one crowded about about, eager to congratulate me. The Colonel was dum- founded, and 1 didn’t give him time to reply. “May 1 try to put “Ben” through his gaits for you?” I asked, and taking the request as his consent, I rode “Ivan” for quite a while. He went through every one of his old saddle gaits like the perfect gentleman he always was with me. Then at my request, Bill put up the hurdles and “Ivan” jumped to his heart’s content. He was really a wonderful horse, and his splendid action was highly appreciated. At last I stopped. “Ivan” was tired and I fancied they all thought me possessed. So, riding up to my audience, I reined in “him” and said, “I feel that I owe you all an explanation, although it’s going to spoil everything to tell you.” “Ben,” or rather “Ivan,” as he is known to me, used to be my saddle horse. Father sold him to a fancy horse dealer when I went away to school. 1 don’t know why, but he has al¬ ways hated men, but a woman can ha idle him with perfect safety, he is just an ordi¬ nary horse if ridden by a girl; so you see,” I added, “I’m really no heroine, only a bunch of deceit.” “Ivan,” said the Colonel, “is too fine a horse to be ruined; please accept him with my compliments. You deserve him, and no sensible person will ever ride him again.” Smilingly I thanked the Colonel and declined, for you see “Ivan” had thrown Dad just before he sold him, and Dad never would allow me to ride a horse that “could throw him if he knew it.” Of course, the rest of my stay was wonderful. 1 became a heroine and 1 really regretted leaving “Ivan.” Sally has written me to spend this summer with her, and she adds in the post¬ script: “Dad still keeps ‘Ivan, the terrible,’ for you. S. N.” Katherine Wayne Gouldin. 71 Junior - Senior Reception A T eight o’clock on Wednesday, May 24, 1922, an expectant crowd of Seniors assembled in the halls of the High School. The Study Hall was beautifully decorated, carrying out the color scheme of orange and garnet, those being the Senior Class colors. Everybody was given a card with a letter of the alphabet on it. Quite a bit of excitement resulted in matching cards in order to find who would be partners. Having found partners, the Grand March was the opening act of the evening pleasure. The leaders most cheerfully led us over the whole building, finally leading us into the hall of the basement, which was most delightfully converted into a dining room. The color scheme of red and white was very artistically carried out. The menu of the banquet was most elaborate and it was charmingly served. M iss Pearl Goldsmith acted as toastmistress. A response on behalf of the graduates was made by Mr. Alwyn Hundley, vice-president of the Senior Class. Other guests responding were Mr. E. F. Birckhead, Superintendent of Schools; Mr. A. L. Link, Mr. J. M. Steck, Mrs. C. 1. Williams, Mrs. Elsie Rice, Miss Mary Rice and Mrs. Elizabeth Courtney. Following the banquet everybody returned to the Study Hall and there en¬ joyed various forms of entertainment. The most enjoyed, probably, was the square dancing, led by Dr. R. N. Lanier. These amusements were indulged in until eleven o’clock, when partners were asked to form in line, preparatory to marching again. But this time we were led direct to the dining hall, where ice cream and cake were most deliciously served. And thus the delightful occasion ended. Camilla Moody. 72 73 Dramatics T HE students of Fredericksburg High School have shown unusual ability in dramatics this year. The first of their series of entertainments was the Senior play, entitled “Next Door,” which proved a great success. Mr. A. P. Link directed and staged the play, and much credit is due him for the success of it. “Next Door” is a comedy in three acts. The play has to do with Professor Courtney Martin (Norman Allen), who rented a cottage and has moved in; in the meantime Mrs. Thornton (Camilla Moody) rents the same cottage from another agent. She, her niece, Betty Armstead (Rebecca Briggs) and her servant Orange (Pearl Huffman) arrive while Pro¬ fessor Martin and chums Will Webster (Alwyn Hundley) and George Chester (Kenneth Dice) are out. They return and discover that Mrs. Thornton has taken possession. At a suggestion the house is divided. Mrs. Thornton ' s niece, Alice Armstead (Hildah Brauer) and her friend Kathleen Covington (Virginia Williams) arrive a week earlier than expected. Here Alice meets Chester whom she has known before and Kathleen falls in love with Webster. Fred Harper (Irving G allant) comes to call on Professor Courtney Martin. While there Professor Martin explains to Harper that he is trying to write a love story. Harper tells him to ask Betty to help him with the love passages, wdiich he does. Kathleen and Webster quarrel— Alice decides to abandon her professional career. The cottage is deserted. Six months later Mrs. Thornton is back in her town home. The guests arrive for Betty’s birthday party. By a clever scheme Professor Martin succeeds in getting all the guests in the music room in order that he may be alone with Betty. He pays Orange to not let any one in, but in spite of this he is interrupted several times. Professor Martin’s love story reaches a climax. Orange tells Mrs. Thornton that she will stay with her ever afterwards, being as the girls are all marrying the men that live “Next Door.” 74 75 Third Year Household Arts W E five Seniors had the honor of being the first class of Third Year Sewing ever taught in F. H. S. And taking advantage of that privilege, we set to work to make ourselves worthy of such an honor. So with Mrs. Link as our faithful loving companion (for such she was to us all), we went joyfully through our Senior Year; each day looking forward with pleasure to those two periods in which we took sewing. 76 Rapahanoc Second Year Household A rts Doris Carneal .

At each game they were admired by the audience for their team work and lighting spirit. If the game was lost it did not dampen their spirit, hut a better one was in store for the next. Although they were always overcome by other teams in weight, they were the equal in skill and pep. I he team of 1921-22 is leaving two of their players to star on the 1923 team. 80 Girls ' Interclass Basket Ball Team F OR the development of the girl’s basket-ball material an Interclass Basket¬ ball League was organized in November, 1921. Through the efforts of this league the fundamentals of the game thus assured new material for our future teams. Credit must be given to Mr. Goldsmith, who, being in hearty sympathy with the school activities, gave a large silver loving cup. Upon this cup will be engraved the name of the class winning the league championship. The following teams participated : Seniors Ruth Dillard (R. F.) Camilla Moody (Center) Kathryn Hooper (L. F.)

In comparison with our opponents our team ranked very much lighter in weight. Being handicapped by a lack of players and a field in which to practice, much credit must be given to the hard efforts of the team as a whole. We may rest assured that this experience, however, will be of much importance for our 1922 team. The following was the line-up of the team: 1. C. W.— Rowe 2. R. G.—Ashleich 3. L. G.—Greenlaw 4. R.

The association was organized in the early fall and was later divided into two divisions for a membership campaign. “The Wild Cats,” under the leadership of Ruth Dillard, and " The Bear Cats,” under the leadership of W. Rowe. Two- thirds of the school was enlisted under this campaign and membership cards were secured. These saved the members the full expense of all football, basket-ball and baseball games. T his association was a big factor in fostering clean and wholesome athletics for the whole school. 89 Rapahanoc i i Hi-Y y y HE “HI-Y " Club was organized February 16, 1922, under the supervision of director, Mr. M. M. Manger. The following officers were elected: John Billingsley .. Harry Dillon . Houston Jones . Carter Rowe _ Grafton Greenlaw . President _ First Vice-President Second Vice-President .. Secretary . Tre usurer physical Meetings were held every other Thursday at 6 P. M., wdien supper was served bv some of the High School faculty and girls. The “HI-Y” Club is an organization to which thousands of H ' gh School boys through¬ out the United States belong. This federation is known as the secondary Schoolboy’s Christian Movement of the Y. M. C. A. The Club is an organization, by the boys, of the boys and for the boys, of the three upper classes in High School. The purpose of the HI-Y organization is to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character. The slogan is “Clean living, " “Clean speech,” “Clean athletics,” and “Clean scholarship.” The principal activity of our “HI-Y” was the study of the Bible, which was con¬ ducted by different ministers of the city. Interesting talks by men worthwhile was another benefit for the boys. The “HI-Y " Club has been an asset to the school and to the members especially. 99 ’T wenty-two Rastus ’ Experience Rastus was a little boy He had a dark complexion And when he looked into a glass He made a dark reflection. One day while going down the street He saw a little white girl Sa’s Rastus jes to be dat white I ' d gib the ' hole, wide world. Then Rastus to his home does go To see if he might make His color like that little girl s By something he might take. And on the kitchen table He finds into a pan He grabs it up and out the door A lot of nice ivhite buttermilk He goes, just like a flash. The best thing then at hand. For if Ant Dinah catches him There sure will be a clash. He goes into an alley near And there he drinks it down And then he stands before a glass To see the change come " round. And low he waits and still he ivaits But low, no change takes place. But on the other hand, he gets Still darker in the face. “Dis here wont do,” poor Rastus sa ' s, T ' se gwin from bad to wuss; I ' ll trise another rim idy I ' d ought have tried at fust. 91 Rapahanoc ’Twenty-two So home he goes, and there he gets A pound of snow-white lard, For this will surely make the change For which he tried so hard. He takes the lard and greezes himself That it might make the change, But ivhen he rubs it in his skin The whiteness all does wand. Now Rastus see the grave mistake, ITIiich he has thus done made, By trying to make his dark complexion To a snow-white fade. Then Rastus from the house does hear, A call, " tis Rastus, Rastus, Rastus; Tis then and there- he hears the call That is to him disasterous. IF hen to the house he does arrive. This question she does ask him: “Why did ye tak ' dat milk an lard Widout permission asking”? He did not dare to answer her. Nor yet to tell the reason why? He simply stood before her, And gazed into her eyes. She stepped into the bedroom And got a slipper new, And Rastus he began to hope. But, Oh, his hopes were few. The remainder of this story 1 will not relate to you. But Rastus’ pains ivere many A nd his joys very few. There ' s a moral in this story. Which everyone should knoiv — Be satisfied with what you have. And do not wish for more. Composed by —Norman E. Allen. But still he knows that he must go. So to the house he goes To meet An t Dinah face to face, And pay the debt he owes. 92 Rapahanoc ’Twenty-two Humor Elizabeth Young: “Houston, what happened in 1492?” Houston Jones: “St. Augustine was founded”.

POETRY AS WRITTEN BY KATE When this little poem was written, Dashed off with a reckless pen— Ah who could see, what the future would be? For Adolph was not with us then. But all good things must end, you see, The longest of lanes have a turning, We feel and we fear, that disaster is near, And the midnight oils we’re burning. To be the Graduating Class of ' 22, Was the hope that kept us alive, But if pep gives us pluck and God gives us luck, We may be that of ' 85.

We would like to extend our congratulations.” I Once upon an evening dreary, while we pondered weak and weary, Over many an old and much used receipt from forgotten lore; While we labored, nearly weeping, suddenly we jumped up leaping, For some one was gently rapping, rapping at the kitchen door. “It is Grafton,” we muttered, “tapping at our kitchen door. We can send him to the store.” II Ah distinctly we did order him to get some vishy water, And after many weary hours, came back to our door; Eagerly he had searched the town, vainly he had been turned down; On his face the look of sorrow—sorrow for that unfilled order, For that rare and brilliant Grafton, whom we had sent for vishy water, Had asked for ? ? ? ?—FISHY WATER.

One often wonders just what the term implies, and yet, as we review the history of the lives of the graduates of old F. H. S. since the early days we begin to see the true meaning. Every group that has passed from the influence of our inspiring instructors has been ennobled by the spirit of service, and today you will find them living up to their motto, though they be butchers or bakers or candlestick makers.

S. 105 To Whom It Most Concerns A TRIP T O relate all that happened on this trip would be an impossi¬ bility, because too many things happened, too much was said and done, to be written, but the remembrances of that trip will always be with those who took it. But—I hear my readers ask, “What trip?” “Who took this trip?” Well, to begin with, “the trip” was the day on which a group of High School students, with teachers to guide, prepared to try their fortunes in the literary and athletic field offered by the University of Virginia. There were twelve—Mr. Birckhead, Mr. and Mrs. Link, Ruth and Ruby Dillard, Rebecca Briggs, Mrs. Garrett and Lyn¬ wood Garrett, Houston Jones, Bill Rowe, Pearle Goldsmith and Camilla Moody, who had the great fortune of taking this trip. At a suggestion of Mr. Link’s, closely seconded by those con¬ cerned, it was decided to make the trip in cars instead of by train. As a result, we are indebted to Mrs. Garrett and Mr. Dillard for the use of their Buicks. At 1 :15 of the afternoon of Thursday, May 11th, the two Buicks, loaded with the “Adventurous Twelve” and plenty of “eats,” pulled out from old F. H. S., leaving behind them many who only wished to be one of that “Adventurous Twelve.” We journeyed on with few mishaps, excusing an occasional losing of a bag, to an ever grumble from Bill Rowe demanding something to eat. Having arrived at Orange, Mr. Birckhead very generously “treated” us. Of course all (?) preferred banana splits. Scarcely had we left Orange before we were aware of mountains in the surrounding vicinity. The excitement was great, as only a few of the “Adven¬ turous Twelve” had ever seen a mountain. Journeying on, one of the Buicks stopped on a sight-seeing trip at “Mount Athos,” while the other enjoyed the hospitality of “Sunlight.” 106 Nearing Charlottesville, all decided that something to eat would be first rate, so, stopping at a spot as described by Bill to be very “picturesque,” an alarming portion of the lunch was quickly consumed. About 8 P. M., we arrived at University, where we stopped at Madison Hall, but we were sent to Peabody Hall, where we were assigned our rooms. The boys were sent to the Barracks, which were in easy range of the “Stiff House.” The girls were assigned to Driscoll’s, where we found comfortable beds, but to our horror they were already occupied— ' taint no matter the barracks were overcrowded? Friday morning we awoke bright and early, and made a wild rush for the University cafeteria, where we found that twenty-five cents would buy all that even Mr. Birckhead or Bill Rowe could possibly desire. The next thing that we have space to note is our trip to Mon- ticello, where we were enhanced by the antique surroundings of Jefferson’s day. We cannot leave out that on our return to Uni¬ versity, we stopped about half-way down the mountain, at a spring long enough to eat lunch, but had to hurry in order to get to University in time to hear Lady Astor speak. Needless to say, we were charmed by her talk, especially as she harped on “Flappers,” and we had seven along. After having our likenesses taken (The Panorama Picture) came the nerve-racking time—namely, the literary contests. Our readers, Pearl and Bill, lost their first contest, beaten by Warren County and Staunton, who lost only in the finals. The debaters, Ruby and Camilla, lost in the semi-finals, having won over Hope- well and Blackstone, losing to Warren County, who lost only to Roanoke, who won the honors in the finals. Being free to do as we pleased, we decided to see Charlottesville, and to our surprise, “moonshine” was far more plentiful than in Fredericksburg. A reminder to those that understand—“Something sinourway” ? 107 We recall the generous efforts of the Fredericksburg boys at¬ tending the University, to show us a good time. Saturday morning we attended the High School and Prep. Track Meet, in which three of the “Adventurous Twelve” partici¬ pated, but Dame Fortune did not see fit to smile upon us that day. As we wanted to visit Luray Cave by 10 o’clock Sunday morn¬ ing, we decided to leave Charlottesville Saturday afternoon. But before leaving, Mr. Birckhead showed us the sights and sites of University. Leaving Charlottesville, the most wonderful part of our trip was before us, the view between Charlottesville and Staunton. A point of interest was Lady Astor’s old home; another was a beautiful residence, at one time the home of a German spy; and further on we passed a magnificent home of a well known actress, whose name we could not recall. Next came Dead Man ' s curve, which was on top of the highest mountain. There we stopped long enough to view the scenery, which—Ah!—we leave a blank—we cannot de¬ scribe it! As we were going into Waynesboro, the “Adventurous Twelve” at last had a real adventure, for the Dillard’s Buick was almost, but not quite, overtaken by a train—“WHEW”! Arriving in Staunton and viewing the city, we passed a bunch of Stuart Hall girls, one of whom made a remark (not heard by the one whom it most concerned, namely the driver of the Dillard’s car), which was “Look at that cute boy”! We stopped at the Virginia Hotel, where we spent a very much more comfortable night than previously. But we cannot leave out about our supper at “Chris’s Restaurant,” where we ordered chicken salad, and had to wait for the chicken to be killed. The napkins were stationary (sewed to the table cloth) ; the sugar and salt were mixed, and the butter spread (?) owing to the ability of Ruth. After two hours, we left this most modern “restaurant.” The next morning about 5 o’clock, we were awakened by a loud knock on our doors by Mr. Birckhead, who informed us that we should be “up and doing.” 108 As the clock struck 5 :30, a very sleepy crowd said good-bye to Staunton. After traveling until we were famished, as usual Bill made us stop to eat. But journeying on we arrived at Luray Cave about 10 o’clock. The “Adventurous Twelve” spent a very enjoyable and educational two hours in the Caverns. Leaving Luray, we were disappointed to discover that moun¬ tains and beautiful scenery were seen less frequently. About 3 o’clock we stopped at Pumpkin Hill, a lovely place, where we rested, talked and had lunch. The main subject being “Flappers.” We shall record Mr. Birckhead ' s definition, which was, “just a modern flirt,” we had six, as Camilla was a “fickle flirt with flapper tendencies.” Upon arriving at Culpeper, our troubles began. To begin with, it started to rain—to continue, it rained —and to conclude—it RAINED. The roads were rivers, the rivers—well— oceans, and as for bridges —there just weren ' t any! When we reached Lignum, the good roads ceased and the red mud began. The Dillards had no chains, so they had to buy traces to tie around the wheels. About two miles from Lignum, we discovered a risen creek and no bridge. It was then 7 P. M. and Mr. Link prophesied 10 o’clock as the appointed time to cross, as it had stopped raining by then, and the water was falling a certain percentage a minute, and it had to fall three feet (calculate the per cent yourself). We had nothing but cake to eat, and did cake ever taste so good? At 10 P. M., with hopes flying and nerves dragging, we crossed the creek in safety, and after an awful two hours of getting stuck, bending fenders, pushing and pulling, we arrived at Wilderness, from which the sleepy crowd journeyed on in safety, reaching Fredericksburg about 2 A. M. Monday. So ended the joyful trip of the “Adventurous Twelve.” Will we ever forget the morning after the night before? Use discretion please, and consider the source. 109 4 «•—f ! j John C.
