The time will come when we, the youth of today, will be the older ones of tomorrow. Then may this, the third edition of the RapAHANOC, re¬ flect the work and pleasure, the joy and sorrow of our never-to-be-forgotten High School days. If, in the future, we may look through these pages and live again this happy year together, our purposes will have been accomplished; our work not in vain. nut RAPAHANOC Not to be taken from this library ‘In the years bejore us her name we’ll always bless.

Carter Rowe. Anne Harrison Shepherd Willie Curtis . . Flower: Daisy . President . . . Vice-President . . Secretary Treasurer Poem The Senior Class have met tonight To say a last farewell, And tender memories of this night With each of us will dwell. Our problems worked out side by side And the truths we’ve learned together, “Excelsior,” thou hast been our guide, We ' ll forget all these—no, never. And in the years that are to come We’ll think of days gone by, And of the battles fought and won At our “beloved High.” O! boys and girls of the Senior Class, Do you ever stop to think— After tonight our dear old class Will be but a broken link? But we’ll be true to our dear old High And to her teachings we’ll hold; Each member of our class will try To lift up the white and gold. For four long years we’ve worked and toiled, Led on by teachers true, To keep her name and fame unsoiled, To give our school her due. Our love for her which is untold Will be a treasured memory. A vision of our black and gold Will come to us so tenderly. Dear old F. H. S. we are leaving you, Ihe school we love the best; But we’re leaving you with those who are true And love you none the less. You’ve served us truly from year to year As you have for many before, But in the hearts of none are you held more dear Than by the Class of ’24. Clara FIuffman. iS LOUISE JONES OUR LITTLE MASCOT, WHOSE SMILES MAKE CARE AND WOF.RY VANISH, AND HELP US TO BE BETTER SENIORS; INSPIRING US TO KEEP WORTHY OF OUR IDEALS, AND TO CLIMB ONWARD AND UPWARD. 19 Senior Class Richard Birch Gaffin “A light heart lives long.” Vice-President of Freshman Class, ’20, ’21 ; Athletic Association Member, ' 21, ’23, ’24; Captain Senior Basketball Team, ’24; French Club, ’24; Dramatic Club, ’24. To have “Dick” for a friend is as much good fortune as anyone could wish. He is bubbling over with good nature and sees the fun in life, although he can be serious when the occasion calls for it. F. H. S. says: “We’re pulling for you, ‘Dick,’ keep on.” Elizabeth Weirick Payne " None hut herself can he herself.” Member of Athletic Association, ’22, ’23, ’24; Vice-President Sophomore Class, ’22; Tennis Club, ’22; Dramatic Club, ’24; Photographic Editor “Rapahanoc,” ’24. Brains, ability, and good leadership— that’s Elizabeth. All through school she has made for herself a record in schol¬ arship, her marks being among the high¬ est in class. Elizabeth is not without many talents, and we cannot hope too high on the ladder of success for this all¬ round girl. F. H. S. says: “We’re sure of you, Elizabeth, don’t fail us.” Senior Cl ass Anna Paige Green “She is pretty to walk with And witty to talk with, And pleasant, too, to think on.’’ Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; Dra¬ matic Club, ’24. Anna Paige is the attractive, viva¬ cious person we like to be around. She enjoys her good times, but never does pleasure completely overshadow her work. With her brown eyes and lov¬ able disposition, Anna Paige has won many lasting friends, to say nothing of her admirers. F. H. S. says: “We like your spirit; stay with the gang.” William Key Howard “It is not wise to he wiser than necessary.” Football, ’22, ’23. “Legs” is full of fun and believes in helping the old world to smile. He is jack-of-all-trades and master of some. When the occasion arrives he can play iootball, basketball, argue or study. Wil¬ liam is a true friend and a clear thinker, and the High School has profited greatly for his being here. F. H. S. Says: “Go to it, Bill, we’re backing you.” Senior Class Esther Jane Cosby “How her fingers went as they moved by ear, Thru measures fine as she marched them o’er The yielding plank of the ivory floor.” French Club, ’24; Varsity Basketball Team, ’23; Athletic Association, ’23, ’24; Dramatic Club, ’24. It is impossible to be blue around Esther, and just as impossible to keep still when she is playing the piano. Esther has contributed in a large way to making our High School life more pleasant. F. H. S. says: “Say it with smiles.” Winfield Thomas Jones “He’s little, but he’s wise; He ' s a terror for his size.” Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ' 24; Hi-Y, ’22. Who does not know “Mickey”? Those few who may not have known him intimately have missed much. Those who have enjoyed his close companion¬ ship will miss a great deal in the years to come. He is a little fellow, small in stature, yet with a large heart and great thinking ability. We expect to hear of “Mickey” in the future. F. H. S. says: “We’re for you, al¬ ways, ‘Mickey’.” sks ' •. -itljH I; ' : Senior Class Anne Harrison Shepherd “So wise, so young, And still the ’wonder grew How one small head could carry all she knew.” Treasurer Freshman Class; Treasurer Soph¬ omore Class; Member Athletic Association, ’n, ’22, ’23, ’24; Tennis Club, ’22; Secretary Senior Class; Secretary Athletic Association, ’24; Praetor “Populus Romanus”; “Cum Laude,” ’21, ’22, ’23; Member of “Societe Jeanne d’Arc” ; Literary Editor of ’24 " Rapa- hanoc”; Dramatic Club, ’24. As a loyal supporter of athletics and an excellent student, we are proud to present Anne Harrison. She is the Lit¬ erary Editor of this Annual, and if you wish to know her ability, glance through the pages of this book. F. H. S. says: “Here’s wishing you first grades on the ticket tagged ‘Life’.” Margaret Ella Tinder “A smile for all, a greeting glad; A lovable, jolly way she had.” Member of the Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; Member “Jeanne d ' Arc” and Sec¬ retary of “Romanus Populus.” Sweet and lovable, a most loyal sup¬ porter of F. H. S. and a good sport, Mar¬ garet is liked by all. Though retiring and modest in the formation of her friendships, she is loyal and devoted to the end of the chapter. F. H. S. says: “We regret not hav- : ng more like you.” Senior Class Edith Daingerfield Philips “Take it easy; have your fun, And let the old world flicker on. " Dramatic Club, ’24; Athletic Association, ’20, ’21, ’23, ’24; F. II. S. Orchestra, ’21; Varsity Basketball, ’20; Tennis Club, ’21. Edith is always light hearted and in for a good time. Quick sympathy, keen wit, rare judgment (sometimes), sun¬ shine, lots of poise and personality. Take all this and that charm which is just hers, and you have this happy Senior. F. H. S. says: “If you feel like flying, try it, but always keep “Slick.” Carter Redd Rowe " Hail fellow, well met.” Athletic Association Member, ’20, ’21, ’22; Secretary, ’22, ’23; President, ’23, ' 24; Foot¬ ball, ’21; Captain, ’22, ’23; Baseball, ’21, ’22; Basketball, ’22, ’23; Manager, ’23, ’24; Track, ’22; Manager, ’23; Vice-President of Senior Class; President of Latin Club; Secretary of Sophomore Class; Secretary of Hi-Y Club, ’21, ’22; Tennis Club, ’22; “F” Club, ' 22; Athletic Editor of “Rapahanoc,” ’24; Dra¬ matic Club, ’24. A finished athlete, a social lion, and an earnest student, “Rastus” is an ex¬ cellent example of what we like to boast of as a Fredericksburg High School boy. E. H. S. says: “Keep going, Carter, we believe in you.” Senior Cl ass John Dabney Billingsley " With reason firm, a determined will, Endurance, foresight, strength and skill.” President of Senior Class, ’24; President of Junior Class, ’23; Vice-President of Athletic Association, ’23, ’24; Football, ’20, ’22, ’23; Member of Athletic Association, ’20, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; President Hi-Y, ’22; President “F” Club, ’22; Manager Basketball, ’21; Mana¬ ger Baseball, ’23, ’24; General Advertising Manager Athletics. There are always those who stand out because of their ability, and John is one of those persons. He is good natured and a friend to everyone, and has ably led our rebellious spirits for the past two years. F. H. S. says: “May the world wel¬ come a leader, and good fortune await 1 y you. Geraldine Burruss Anderson “What shall I do to he forever known, And make the age to come my own.” Business Manager “Rapahanoc,” ’24; Mana¬ ger Varsity Team, ’24; Captain Senior Bas¬ ketball Team, ’24; Sophomore Class Team, ’22; Athletic Association, ’2r, ’22, ’23, ’24; Dramatic Club, ’24. From the manner in which Geraldine has handled the financial side of this Annual, we expect her to be president of a bank some day. “Jerry” is very en¬ thusiastic and will try anything to help “old F. H. S.” Ask her if she knows a little song entitled “John B—, my Joe, John.” F. H. S. says: “Slow up on the curves, Jerry.” Senior Class Sara Franklin Willcox “Leave silence to the saints, I am but human.’’ Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; As¬ sistant Dramatic Editor of “Rapahanoc,” ’22; F. H. S. Orchestra, ’21 ; Dramatic Club, ’24. Sara works hard when she isn’t talk¬ ing to her neighbors. So full of life’s brightness is Sara, that there will be a distinct dimming in old F. H. S. when she leaves its walls. We are unable to predict Sara’s destination, but we are sure she will not disappoint us. F. H. S. says: “Remember us, old dear, and ‘bon voyage’.” Sidney Lockhart Scott “What care I if I can rest, Kill time and take life at its best?” Dramatic Club, ’24; Football Team, ’23. “Scott,” the football hero, the heart- breaker. “Scott,” the dramatic star; “Scott”-—! This boy drifted into old F. FI. S. this year and a spark of mischief, combined with some seriousness, made us mindful ot a live personality. If he continues to do things in the future as well as he has done here, we need have no fear for him, and predict that in later years noise won’t be the only thing that F. H. S. will be famous for. F. H. S. says: “So long, make the most of every day and hour.” Senior Cl ass Vivian Louise Cussons “Oh, cushy should life all labor be?” Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23. Those who have not met Vivian have missed quite a bit. She is jolly, good natured, and ever ready to help. Vivian is her worst critic, and although she complains of her ignorance, we all know she never fails to pass with a good mark. We all like her and consider her our friend, for to know her is to love her. Vivian is not the kind of a girl who would disappoint anyone, and our ex¬ pectations for her future are many and large. F. H. S. says: “May your world be ever joyous.” George Cephas Freeman “lie smashes the plays of a heavy line; lie does his best every time.” Baseball, ’22, ’23; Basketball, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; Captain of Basketball, ’23, ’24; Football Team, ’22, ’23; Hi-Y Club, ’22; Member “F” Club, ' 22; Secretary of French Club, ’23, ' 24; Cheer Leader, ’21 ; Member of Athletic Asso¬ ciation, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24. Cephas is one of F. H. S.’s football stars who cannot be given too much credit for his good playing. “C” is a favorite with both boys and girls and will leave his impress wherever he goes. F. H. S. says: “Stand as high in the eyes of the world as you do in the hearts of your classmates.” Senior Class Charles Edgar Stevens “He ’will relish a joke and rejoice in a pun; A rare combination of oddity, frolic and fun.” Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ' 23, ' 24; Hi-Y, ’ 22 . Edgar enjoys a joke, and everyone else enjoys it with him. As for mis¬ chief, can’t you note it lurking in his eyes? Under his mischief lies kindness, and his wit is free from injury. Bill is a favorite with teachers and students alike, and his “exit” will be keenly felt. We are proud of our laughter specialist, and will look forward to his triumphs in the future. F. H. S. says: “Laugh on, the world has need of your kind.” Muriel Ione Euliss “Whose little body lodges a mighty mind.” Editor-in-Chief of " Rapahanoc,” ’24; Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; Cum Laude, ’21, ’22, ’23 ; Member of Populus Romanus, ’24; Sophomore Class History, ’22; Dramatic Club, ’24; Tennis Club, ’22; Varsity Bas¬ ketball, ’23; Sophomore Basketball, ' 22; Senior Basketball, ' 24; Societe de Joan d’Arc, ’24. As we all know, Muriel is very tal¬ ented. She is one of our best students, both in her studies and in basketball. Muriel is ever ready to do her best for her Alma Mater. We are glad to have her as editor-in-chief of our Annual. F. H. S. says: “Enthusiasm and en¬ ergy are the gold-dust twins that clean up things.” Mary Virginia Gouldman “A merrier one never spent a hour ' withal.” Member of Athletic Association, ’23, ’24; Member of " Populus Romanus” ; Member of “Cum Laude”; Representative of “Jeanne d ' Arc” Club; Assistant Joke Editor of " Rapa- hanoc,” ’22 ; Dramatic Club, ' 24. A giggle! Immediately every one knows from what source it comes. Vir¬ ginia, though small in stature, is a com¬ bination of mirth and brains. Possessing such rare qualities, everyone expects for her a great future. F. H. S. says: “May you have suc¬ cess and keep on laughing.’’ Henry Davis Genther “When joy and duty clash. Let duty go to smash!” Idi-Y Club, ’22; Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24- Henry comes very irregularly to school, but when he does honor us with his presence we are very glad to have him. He is not afraid of work, but would rather not be intimately associated with it. If Henry’s income is as large as his heart, Rockefeller will envy him. F. H. S. says: “Come on, help make the old Burg famous.” r r m Senior Class Helen Catherine Hearn “Fun loving and happy, Ambitious and gay.” Athletic Association, ’20, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; Captain of Sophomore Basketball Team, ’22; Secretary of Junior Class, ’23; “Cum Laude” Club; Representative of “Populus Romanus, " ’24; Manager of Senior Basketball Team, ’24. Here is a girl who does a thing and asks no credit, therefore she receives it. Everyone appreciates her efforts in mak¬ ing the pictures for this Annual. Helen will play well in life’s drama and her classmates will watch with keenest de¬ light her triumphs. F. H. S. says: “Fifteen cheers for Helen.” Richard Horton VanDenrurg “Exhausting thought And gaining wisdom with each studious year.” Athletic Association, ’20, ’2r, ’23; Hi-Y, ’22; Cum Laude; Societe Jeanne d ' Arc, ’24; Busi¬ ness Manager of “Rapahanoc,” ’24; Dramatic Club, There are few who are liked better than Horton, for his ready wit and cheerful demeanor have made him a pop¬ ular classmate. In studies he ranks in the “ninety” class. He is one of the busi¬ ness managers of this Annual, and took part in the English play. F. H. S. says: “Gifts are to every man, and yours is the ability to use them.” Senior Cl ass Elizabeth Martin Harrison “Silence oppresses ’with too great a ’weight.” Athletic Association, ’21, ’23; French Club, ’24. Elizabeth’s good nature and pleasing personality has won her a place in all our hearts. Of all the senses the great¬ est one is a sense of humor and one of the greatest arts is being useful, in which Elizabeth is not lacking. A happy future is certainly in store for her. F. H. S. says: “We hope you’ll find life’s pathway pleasant.” William Embrey Curtis “If it he a gentleman and a Scholar ye seek, Ye have found him.” Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; Hi-Y, ’22; Baseball Team, ’22, ’23, ’24; Treasurer of Senior Class, ’24. Willie has always been a good student as far back as we can remember and has a record to be proud of. He is one of our best baseball players, and next year the High School will miss his good work. “Pickle” always greets you with a friendly word and a twinkling eye. Although our Alma Mater will miss him from her walls, he will find a warm welcome in the world’s great workshop. F. H. S. says: “Don’t forget to win me glory.” Senior Class Agnes Lillian Baber “The girls ’who ’win arc the girls ’who ’work —■ The girls ’who toil ’while others shirk.’’ John Marshall High School, ' 20, ' 21, ’22; Salesburg, ' 23; F. H. S., ’24; French Society; Senior Basketball Team; Latin Club. Agnes joined our class this year, and we found her to be an excellent student and an enthusiastic worker. “Peggy’s” activity among us has been of the indis¬ pensable kind, and we are sure that the success she has made of her High School life is but a stepping-stone to larger op¬ portunities. F. H. S. says: “We regret you didn’t look us up sooner.” Andrew Jackson Bolling, |r. “H’orth, courage, honor; these indeed Your sustenance and birthright are.” Athletic Association, ’21, ' 22, ’23, ’24; Hi-Y, ’22. Andrew is numbered among our best students in scholarship, companionship, and school spirit. He has distinguished himself by his persistency and determi¬ nation, always getting what he goes after and always on the job. Andrew has en¬ graved himself in our memory by possess¬ ing politeness and courtesy, combined with his cheerful disposition. He will surely be successful as he climbs higher. F. H. S. says: “We’re watching for your record of future honors.” Senior Class Delma Clark “She is carefree, happy and (jay .” Athletic Association, ’23, ’24; Dramatic Club, ’24; Senior Class Team, ’24. Small of stature, but she makes up all deficiencies of that type by being one of the jolliest and most attractive mem¬ bers of our class. Because of her at¬ tractive personality she is well-liked by all of her classmates. F. H. S. says: “A host of friends wish you well.” James Mitchell Baffin “The readiness of doing doth express No other but the doer ' s willingness . " Athletic Association; Dramatic Club, ’24. For two years James’ Ford has been parked at F. H. S. and for two years he has been one of the loyal sup¬ porters of our Alma Mater. We can¬ not help but remember the many useful things he has done and the little ways he has helped to make life brighter. The old school will miss him when he begins parking his Ford elsewhere. F. H. S. says: “Nothing counts that is gained without a struggle.” Senior Class Mary Micheaux Dickinson “She that was ever fair and never proud Had tongue at will and yet was never loud.” Member of Athletic Association, ’23, ’24; Treasurer of Senior Class, ’23 ; Entered from Farmville High School, ’22. Mary comes to us from Farmville, and we wish she could have been with us longer, for she is such a good sport. Her optimistic nature and friendliness make her an outstanding girl. We expect her to play the game of life in a manner that will bring pride to her classmates. F. H. S. says: “Good luck, your place will be hard to fill.” Marion Elizabeth Marshall “In thy heart a dew of youth.” Secretary of Sophomore Class; Historian of Sophomore Class; Assistant Art Editor of “Rapahanoe,” ’22; Secretary of Class, ' 23; Art Editor of “Rapahanoe,” ' 24. Every one remembers Marion, of the lovable character and cheery smiles, al¬ though she deserted us—(there’s a rea¬ son). She has a happy philosophy of life that brings her friends galore, and a talent for art that counts up admirers. Woven fondly with our memories of the happy days at F. H. S. will be a fair face, not easily forgotten. F. H. S. says: “We wish you had stayed with us longer.” Senior Cl ass Nannie Warren Gray “Good nature is the sign of a large and generous soul.” Member of “Populus Romanus,” ’24; Athletic Association, ’21, ’22. Nannie is one of our best students. She enters heartily into everything she undertakes. Any morning about 8:30 you can see her drive up in her sedan, all ready for school. Good nature, combined with her winning personality, makes her a friend of all. F. H. S. says: “For all that’s good and true, we’ll always count on you.” Francis Gouldman “Not too serious, not too gay, But altogether a jolly good fellow.” President of Freshman Class, ’20; President of Sophomore Class, ’21 ; Athletic Association, ’20, ’21, ’22, ’23; Hi-Y Club, ’22; Baseball Team, ’22. “Johnny” is one of those persons who has so many good qualities that it is im¬ possible to dwell on any certain one of them. Francis’ baseball ability, good marks and popularity are his outstand¬ ing characteristics. His untiring efforts to discover the good four years of Latin will do him, are a source of wonder to us all. This boy is in for everything, and always succeeds in anything he at¬ tempts. May this never vary. F. H. S. says: “May the gods favor yy you. Senior Class Susie Madeline Greenlaw “Of girl friends, give me plenty; Of boy friends, I care for none.” Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; Class Basketball Team, ’22, ’23, ’24; Tennis Club, ' 22. Susie is a steadfast and faithful stu¬ dent, ever ready to lend a hand and to root for the High School team. We are all glad to see her as she approaches school in her Buick each morning, and I ' . H. S. will miss her when she goes. F. H. S. says: “Maybe you’ll like the fairer sex, some day.” James Simpson McWhirt “Justice vindicates and wisdom guides.” James comes in every morning to visit F. H. S. and, although he is tardy quite a hit, he comes just the same. He has been under the Gold and Black just two years and the school hates to lose him. He plays well in baseball and will be missed in the field and at the bat. When he leaves we know he can’t help but win with the F. H. S. spirit. F. H. S. says: “We won ' t forget you, James.” Senior Cl ass Florence Estelle Pancoast “Almost to all things could she turn her hand.” Athletic Association, ’23. Look who we have here—someone who is always ready to help her friends and classmates. Though Florence isn’t an athlete, she’s always on the field to cheer for her team. Quiet? Yes, but always ready to help when called upon. With these qualities, how could she fail in life ? F. PI. S. says: “We are proud of )) you. Richard Henry Decker. ‘ ' Though modest; on his unembarrassed brow Nature has written ‘gentleman’.” Athletic Association, ’22, ’23, ’23.; French Club, ’2 + . Richard is a broad, fair-minded, true¬ hearted friend, liked by every one. He is one of those quiet, good-natured, pleasing persons who are always ready to an¬ swer the call of duty, entering every¬ thing with the determination to come.out successfully. We have been blessed in having him for a friend and classmate. F. H. S. says: “Luck to an all-round man.” Senior Class Audrey Veru Stevens “Of soul sincere, In action faithful, And in honor clear.” Audrey has stuck faithfully to her work throughout her High School life. She is a natural-born worker, putting her whole soul into whatever she under¬ takes to do, and doing it well. Loyal, dependable, and conscientious, Audrey is all this and more. Faithful to duty and trust, loyal and sincere to friends, no one fears for Audrey’s future, that one day she will reach the land where dreams come true. F. H. S. says: “Wishing you good luck and happiness.” Benjamin Godfrey Smith “With honest pride he scorns each selffish end.” Dramatic Club, ’24. This is Godfrey’s first year in our midst and his name on our roll has added much to our class and school. He is never tiring, always interested in the right and helping a good cause, with in¬ terest and remarkable ability. To have been Godfrey’s classmate and friend is a privilege and experience upon which, in years to come, memory will delight to dwell. F. H. S. says: “You leave with our best wishes.” Senior Cl ass Clara Marion Huffman " To be efficient in a quiet way Is my aim through every day. ’ Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23, 24; French Club, ’24. We present one in whom the Senior Class delights. Clara has made our school life pleasanter for us in many ways, too various to mention. She is always ready with a smile or cheery word for everyone she greets. Faithful and efficient in her work, contented where- ever she may be, Clara has established herself an enviable place in our hearts. F. H. S. says: “We delight to give your kind to the world.” Shelby Wayne-Arritt “Many talents are his. Child labor laws pre¬ vent him from doing more.” Behold our youngest member! Have we, the Class of ’24, robbed the cradle? Maybe in years, but not in intellect. He is one of those who allows others to do the broadcasting while he does the receiving (a virture seldom seen in a man). How much better off we all would be if we would follow Shelby’s example of quietude. When his golden silence is broken he usually makes a re¬ mark worth while. F. H. S. says: “Good luck, good-bye, and remember us long.” Se mor Class Josie Tompkins Carneal “Thou hast the patience and the faith of saints.’’ Athletic Association, ’21, ’22. Steady, dependable and true is Josie. Her sweet smile has brightened the lives of all who have known her. Don’t get the idea that she is quiet and digni¬ fied. Just ask her friends, and they’ll tell you she is talkative and mischievous. F. H. S. says: “There are honors in this old world for all who will take them.” Thomas Silvanus Morrison “An honest man, close buttoned to his chin, Broadcloth without and a warm heart within.” Athletic Association, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24; Foot¬ ball, ’22, ’23; Manager Football, ’23. Ah! the man! The boy who behaves in football like a real player. Here he is, ladies and gentlemen, but handle him carefully; he is a rough gridiron star. He is on the spot at all times, at all places, and we are sure he will be one of Ole Virginia’s favorites ’ere long. When he leaves us this June, one of the mainstays of the football team will be gone. F. H. S. says: Do your best 1 ” Here’s to you, Tom. Senior Class Mildred Frances Fines “Silence is more eloquent than words.” Modest, simple and sweet—these are a few of the many admirable traits with which Mildred is endowed. Beneath her quiet, yet light-hearted spirit, there is a deeper personality that makes her one of the most dependable girls, the best sort of a friend and a conscientious student. Mildred still retains two characteristics which are rare in the Senior Class—dig¬ nity and long hair. F. FI. S. says: “We know you can’t miss your goal in life.” Robert Edward Gouldin “Good nature and good sense must ever join.” Ladies and gentlemen, meet Edward. If you’ve had the pleasure, you know a good fellow. He is a true son of Staf¬ ford ; also a lover and supporter of the Gold and Black. On top of a pleasant disposition he has a keen sense of humor and sound judgment. Being neither a prophet nor the daughter of a prophet, the writer is unable to predict the future, hut if, in after life, he will but repeat the success he has made at F. H. S., he will climb far up the ladder of fame. F. H. S. says: “Make us proud of you, Edward.” Senior Class Florence Baptist Scott ' ‘Quietness is an indication of the ability to think.” Athletic Association, ’23, ’24; Art Editor of ’24 ‘‘Rapahanoc.” Florence has well remembered that “children should be seen, not heard.” However, when called upon, she is right there “with the goods.” She is a girl whose friendship is really worth culti¬ vating, and who is loyal and true. She is one of the art editors of the 1924 “Rapahanoc” and, with her many other abilities, we cannot help but feel sure she will be efficient in the great work¬ shop of life. F. H. S. says: “May your ‘reach’ always exceed your ‘grasp’.” Lemher Heights Sullivan ' ' The shallows murmur but the deeps are still.” Baseball, ’23. Yes, we have him! Another baseball star! He is a man that is hard to do without and many regret that he can’t keep on playing for the Gold and Black. He is usually quiet ( a rare thing with a Senior) and lets the other fellow talk on. Lemher has only been with us two years, but it doesn’t take a real student long to prove his worth. The Seniors aren’t prophets, but if indications are anything, sucess is beckoning him on. F. H. S. says: “May Dame Fortune ever smile on you.” Senior Class Jeffries Chinn Hudson “In thy face I see The maps of honor , truth and loyalty.” Senior Basketball Team, ’24. A loyal Senior, a staunch friend and a zealous student. Did someone say quiet and reserved ? She is anything but that. In fact, she is full of fun. Put together her optimism, her good fellowship, her enthusiasm, and her love of sports, and you’ll have a “wee bit” of an idea of what Jeffries is like. F. H. S. says: “Our loss is the world’s gain.” Fi.ovd Clyde Sullivan “His quiet ways and his faithful work Are lessons to those who study.” White Oak High School, ’21, 22; F. H. S., ’23, ’24; Member of Baseball Team, 23. Floyd joined our class in his Junior year and immediately became a worthy member. Our boys won the district championship in baseball last year, and he is one of the reasons. Floyd is our home-run king. We shouldn’t wonder if he doesn’t some day become a league player. Anyway, we predict him a suc¬ cess in life. F. H. S. says: “On life’s ball-ground we hope you’ll always make home runs.” Senior Cl ass George Thomas Young “A youth never bold, of spirit still and quiet. " George seems quiet and reserved when one first meets him, but as acquaintance ripens into friendship, there is found be¬ neath the exterior an open heart and glad spirit. When in years to come, you pick up this Annual and glance at this page, you will remember George, the kind of a fellow who is a true friend and com¬ rade. F. H. S. says: “With your diploma go our best wishes.” Harold Clifton Green ‘‘Honest good humor is the oil and wine of a merry meeting.” French Club, ’24. Did you ever see anyone who would just take what comes and have some¬ thing funny to say about it? Well, that’s just Harold. We have roared with laughter because of him, and many are the classrooms brightened by his ready wit. He always has time to help, and is a real booster. F. H. S. says: laughter specialist.” A bright future, History RIENDS, tonight we face one of the hardest moments of our lives; for we must say good-bye after being together for four years, and to say goodbye is to die a little. It seems as if, when we leave high school, we lose some of our youth, leave it behind, as it were, to others who come after us. But though we leave our child¬ hood we cannot lose our dreams and our memories. The Class of ’24 is a proud one. Even as royal families took pride in their ancestry, so we remember and treasure each event of our career as gold and precious gems were treasured by pirates of old. Were I an artist I would paint for you in flaming colors the history of the class or, being a poet, would show it to you in such vivid word pictures that you would never forget. But, being neither of these, I can only do my best to show you such pictures as are strongest in our memories. There are four series of these pictures and the first work of art which I wish to draw to your attention is the oldest of the collection. The scene is the elementary school. There is a large room filled with desks and a tall man, who is easily recognized as Mr. Birckhead, is in the act of telling the children just what is to be expected of Freshmen. The scene shifts ever so slightly and in place of the elementary school there is an obviously new ' building, but it seems strangely quiet—there are no children in sight. Let us look inside of the building. Here we find a reason for the strange silence, for these same young people with fear and sorrow written large upon their features are filing slowly into a room receiving small blue books as they pass through the doorway—examinations! and the first at that. It’s no wonder they are quiet. We will now pass on to a second picture. Here we see a very large bare room, which everyone who has ever been to high school easily recognizes as the math room. Presiding over the class is a little lady with dark hair and eyes. But as we watch her she becomes clothed in shining white with a filmy bridal veil and disappears quite suddenly with a flutter of white ribbons, dropping a card on which is engraved " Mrs. Sharpe.” As she vanishes we become aware of a gentleman seated in her place, Mr. Steck. Let us push this aside. In its place is a lovely room filled with pictures and flowers. There are two figures in this study seemingly engaged in earnest conversation—Mrs. Courtney and Mr. Dickerson, the new principal. The next is a scene from our Junior-Senior banquet. Seated at a long table, extending from one end of the basement to the other, are the Juniors and the Seniors feasting merrily, exchanging jokes and witty sayings with one another. Truly this is a merry picture, but W ' e must not linger too long. The first one of this last series of pictures is a painting of a large black book and has written on it in letters of gold The Rapahanoc. It is our annual of which we are justly proud. The next picture is a nature study very much on the order of Corat ' s " Dance of the Nymphs,” for here we see Grecian youths and maidens dancing gayly while one of the youths, “Endymion,” by name, sleeps peacefully beneath a tree. Can you guess what the next picture represents? It is a very vivid study in red and white. Hundreds of hearts, large and small, hang suspended from the ceiling and flow ' ers grace the hall wherein dancers dressed in costumes from all parts of the world pass gayly to and fro. This is a portrayal of the Senior-Junior party. The last of these pictures is a rather peculiar one. The central figure is a tall, awkward young fellow in khaki. He stoops badly and limps slightly when he walks. It is Clarence himself just as he appeared in our Senior play, and just to look at him one imagines he hears the jazzing music of a saxophone. And so, as we end our high school life, we should remember to always look forward, not backward, and to keep to the right wherever we may go. We should strive to go higher and struggle always to succeed, as we know not whom we may influence nor when, for “Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sands of time, “Footprints that perhaps another Sailing o’er life’s solemn main, A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, Seeing, shall take heart again.’’ Florence Scott. 45 Last Will and Testament We, the Class of ’24, knowing the intrinsic value of the treasures we have acquired in the field of our high school activities, and real¬ izing that they will be of great help to those who follow us, we wish to leave these articles in the hands of those who merit them. Highly valued treasures are usually preserved in chests of gold; but we have placed those treasures dearest to us in this heart of gold for safe¬ keeping.

(Signed) THE SENIOR CLASS OF ’24. Per ANDREW J. BOLLING, .TR. 46 Far back in the ages there was a time when people believed that fairies left messages for mortals. These prophecies were magically written on the petals of flowers. Few people will agree with me when I say we think this today. No, we do not believe in all kinds of fairies; but we know that such fairies as good will, faith, love and courtesy exist, especially in the Senior Class. The members of the graduating Class of ’24 expectantly hope that some good fairy has left for 11s tonight a written message of the future. (Mascot enters with daisy.) We believe in this beautiful theory because someone whom we love very much has brought us one of these magic flowers. This flower has survived through all hardships and withstood all kinds of weather for four long years, and tonight it is brought to us as fresh and beautiful as if this was the begin¬ ning of its life in the world. Let us see if we will find our prophecies on the petals of this daisy. Nannie Gray—The fairy says that Nannie will live on a plantation and her husband will be very successful. Elizabeth Harrison—Fler future will be a continuation of her high school activities. She will be one of the leading basketball coaches of the South and her team will make startling records. Edith Philips—Edith’s future will be among the bright lights of Broadway. She will make her debut in four tears. We can imagine with what popularity she will play. Esther Cosby—This petal tells us that Esther will live in New York and study at Columbia University. She will give many piano concerts to delighted audiences. William Howard, James Daffin—The fairy says that William and James will spend their future among feathered chickens. They are going to start a poultry farm in Stafford. Susie Greenlaw—The good spirit predicts a prosperous future for Susie. She is destined to go to Massachusetts to prepare to hold the position as physical director in the largest school in that state. Richard Gafhn, Henry Genther, James McWhirt—These musicians of the Senior Class will form a three-piece jazz orchestra. Winfield Jones, Andrew’ Bolling—Andrew and Winfield will become teachers in correct posture; that is, the proper manner to sit in a chair. Clara Huffman—Clara is our budding poetess. In the future the fairy predicts that she will be compared with Alice and Phoebe Cary. Delma Clark, Elizabeth Payne—Delma and Elizabeth are destined to he the future models for Whistler. Vivian Cussons—In the future we are told that Vivian will be the mistress of the large house on the hill located in the suburbs of Fredericksburg and approached bv a great many steps. Willie Curtis—We know’ that the characteristics we possess in high school remain with us all our life. Due to Willie’s honesty and dependability, he will be the treasurer of the United States. Margaret Tinder, Anne Shepherd—Margaret and Anne will run a cafeteria. Anne will be teaching aesthetic dancing and Margaret will compose jazz music. Florence Scott—Florence is the gifted one who will take Mrs. Courtney’s place in F. II. S. Anna Paige Green, Sara Wilcox, Mary Dickerson—This trio will establish a very enticing tea shop in New York called the “Butterfly Inn.” Helen Hearn—In the list of the eminent scientists of the future will be the name of Helen Hearn. She will specialize in domestic science. Harold Green—The fairy prophet says that Harold will be a professor of English in the University of Maryland. Horton Vandenburg—We all know that Horton likes to go to the State Teachers’ College for some unknown reason. The fairy foresees him as a professor of art at this institution. 47 Geraldine Anderson—The height of Geraldine’s ambition is to teach English; but the daisy says she will marry a tall, dark man. Carter Rowe—Why, here ' s a picture of the future governor of Virginia. It is no other than Carter Rowe, whose one aim will be to vetoe the state tax commission if it is passed. Shelby Arritt—It is reported as being very dangerous in certain sections of Colorado. Shelby will be there taming wild bronchos and one will have to be very careful when Shelby comes racing down the street. Edward Gouldin—This petal tells us that Edward will migrate to the South. Because of his interest in the country he will study the boll weevil and a wav to get rid of this pest. Cephas Freeman—Cephas will win his fame on the race track. His success will be due to his experience in turning the corners in his Ford truck. Sidney Scott—Sidney will follow the style of old in his manner of winning a girl’s love. He will become a troubador and woo the fair maidens by playing his guitar under their window and singing his love tributes. John Billingsley—The critics will have to be very careful in distinguishing John Barrymore. There will be a rival whose name is very much the same. John Billingsley, through his success in “Clarence,” will he ranked with this great actor. Lehmer Sullivan, Floyd Sullivan—The Sullivan brothers will be the foremost Shakespearean interpreters. Richard Decker—From this petal we learn that Richard will be the future “sheik” and will take Rodolph Valentino’s place. Thomas Morrison—We see in Thomas the future " bantam weight” prize fighter. Virginia Gouldman—Virginia will become principal of a school in Fredericksburg. She will not allow any laughing or giggling. There will be posters throughout the school to this effect. Edgar Stevens—Edgar will be one of the most prominent contributors to the Daily Star. Fie will publish a series of articles for the thin people entitled " Laugh and Grow Fat.” Florence Pancoast—Florence’s foundation will have been obtained in the chemistry class under Miss Kennedy’s instruction. The fairy says she will manufacture a waterproof rouge. Jeffreys Hudson—Jeffreys is destined to establish a new industry for women. They will be called the women automobile mechanics. Mildred Fines—This petal tells us that Mildred is going to New York and become one of Mack Sennett’s Bathing Beauties. George Young—The fairy says that George is going to be a lawyer because of his fondness for talking. Francis Gouldman—The message on this petal says that Francis will be the president of the Farmers and Merchants State Bank of Fredericksburg. Josie Carneal—Josie will marry and settle down in Cuba. Muriel Euliss—Muriel will become a great publisher from the experience she gained on the Rapahanoc. Agnes Baber—From this petal we learn that Agnes will be an eminent speaker on “Women’s Rights” in China. Godfrey Smith—Godfrey is destined to become a manufacturer of Spalding sweaters. Each and every Senior has promised to buy one from him. This prophecy takes us far across the threshold of the golden future into a land where dreams come true. We will go ever onward with the hope that the messages of our good fairy may be realized by us all. Let each Senior always remember the daisy with the golden heart fringed by petals of purest white. We should not think of the daisy as the flower of our prophecy, but as an emblem, the white for purity and truth, and the heart of gold for strength of char¬ acter, stability and worthiness.

S3 54 History of the Junior Class E started out on our first voyage as Freshmen, full of hope and high spirits. We did not know the danger ahead or realize the hardships that lay before us. Gradually the sea became rough, storms were rising, and the outlook dark. But under the guidance of Mrs. Rice, we managed to escape the great rocks off the coast of Algebra. Some were lost, though, and had to be left behind. Finally we reached our destination in June, tired and worn out from so long a journey. On our second voyage, as Sophomores, we were under the supervision of Mrs. Blake. Again we endured hardships and rough weather. A great many were lost again when the ship was washed against the rocks of Algebra. As we passed the country known as Caesar, we left some members of the crew there. Our first mate, Mrs. Williams, made a great fight for the lost ones, but such is life before the mast. The survivors no w demanded her whole attention. During the whole voyage we were annoyed and pursued by the English dragon. We were encouraged and helped by our valiant mate, Miss Ambler. On this voyage we were also followed by ferocious History sharks, which made us almost despair of our lives, but we were rescued from this by M rs. Courtney, a seaman of great ability. On this third voyage as Juniors there are many new members in the crew. We are doing our best under our good Captain Courtney, who has taught us so much History on these voyages that we will be hard to lose. The English Strait lias been very diffi¬ cult, it seems, longer and harder than ever. There are still some instances of bad gram¬ mar, but we are being wonderfully helped by our mate, Miss Morris, who succeeded M iss Ambler. The land of Cicero did not seem so wild and desolate a fter successfully passing the rough coast of Caesar. Admiral Dickinson is struggling manfully with the survivors off the coast of Algebra, and I hope will bring them safe in harbor in the pleas¬ ant month of June. During this voyage we had a financial help, which we all enjoyed. Our first mate, Mrs. Williams, managed to have a picture exhibit, all painted by the old masters of art, which relieved the journey somewhat. Captain Courtney, with the assistance of the crew, managed to put over a moving picture benefit, which netted us a good sum of money. We are all looking forward to the Junior and Senior banquet, which will be in the near future. Fitzhugh Rowe. 55 The J umor Class of 1924 Through all our trials in this life As now we are, may we be true, And may we crown our deeds of strife With purpose as the way we hew 7 . To do our utmost and attain The heights which tower above us, To leave our name without a stain And truth to those who love us. Such is our task in which we vie And in our climb “Excelsior” will, As we go on and bravely try, Our hopes keep fresh, our tremors still. Ambitious plans we have in mind So high, remote, and barred from us, We oft may falter ere we find The goal to which we clamber up. A cheering word, a helping hand, A spirit sympathetic, kind, That cheers one like a fairy wand Among our class we always find. Our teachers, too, are helping us With good advice and tactful care. They’re watching o’er and guiding us, Our prospects and our trials share. With such incentive who could fail To climb unto a lofty height? Our name immortalized will sail Upon a future sea of light. So now we muster up our strength To do so well our duties here, That when we ' ve finished school at length Our best will be our Junior year. William Hayden. 56 SOPHOMORES From Atlas.

S. football team of ’23 made a fine showing both in hard fighting and in sports¬ manship. Although handicapped by weight, their spirit and team work was of the best. Some excellent material was exhibited for coming years. 9i Rowe, Quarterback and Captain Playing his third year in the varsity, “Ras¬ tas” was naturally captain of the team. His generalship was good at all times, while his broken field running and end runs featured many games. Morrison, Center and Manager “I.ittle Tom’s” opponent seldom appeared in the second half. lie will be remembered as the hard hitting and accurate center. Allison, Fullback A plunging fullback, who infrequently failed to open a hole in the line on the of¬ fense, and when backing up the line the op¬ ponents generally fell toward their own goal. Tompkins, Halfback This was his first year in the backfield, anti by his speed and uncanny tackling abil¬ ity, he proved it to be a successful one. " Dick” never lost his spirit and was a valuable man on offense and defense. Billingsley, Halfback Another third-year man, whose punting and line drives were of marked ability. " Pied " Billingsley was a sure tackier, and it seemed as if the ball magnetized to him dur¬ ing an aerial attack. Scott, Halfback “Scottie” was always ready to “get in the fight.” lie was the general utility man of the backfield and a game fighter. Sale, End The opposing team found Sale ' s end a dif¬ ficult proposition. As for breaking the inter¬ ference and tackling the runner, Sale was a real player. Sullivan, End Here’s to the end that “got ’em " before they started. “Sully” could intercept passe s no matter where they were, and was a good de¬ fensive end. Freeman, Tackle Played good on offensive and defensive. “Bring the ball through here,” was “C’s” usual Thompson, Guard Thompson was capable of playing either center or guard, and our team was never weak when he was called on, for he was a fighter from the ground up. Whitbeck, Tackle Although his first year on the varsity, “Don¬ nie” charged hard and tackled low. lie im¬ proved with each game and much is expected from him next year. Howard, W., Guard Another position of our “stone wall.” As¬ sisted by his long legs, no line was strong enough to keep him from breaking through. Howard, F., Guard This is the man who showed us how “to hit the ground.” “Key” always managed to miss his opponent, although he played a “scrappy” game. Ash leigh. Tackle “Ed” was one of those men who are always “in the game” and kept fighting from whistle to whistle. Girls Basketball, 1924 The High School girls proved their inter¬ est in sports by trudging out to the State Teachers’ College twice every week to prac¬ tice and thus help to make a name for F. H. S. in athletics. The team started out to win the district championship, and Lucy Gouldman and “Jerry” Anderson worked hard to get that ball in the basket. They were occasionally helped out by Betsy Embrey and Claire Freeman. The support of the guards, “Jack” Harrison, Peggy Baber, and Madeline Wheeler, was a big feature in every game. Esther Cosby never missed hitting the ball when she jumped for it, and “Shortie” Euliss cleaned up the floor as side center. The 1924 varsity has worked hard and fought for their Alma Mater, and their idea of a good sport may be expressed in the words of Berton Braley: May fate give me power In playing or working Each day and each hour To strive without shirking; To get without grabbing, A fair spirit showing; To lose without crabbing; To win without crowing. I ask for fair chances, A field with no favor, Wh ere he who advances Is stronger or braver; Where there’s no repining At how things are going; Where losers aren ' t whining, And winners aren’t crowing. The sport is the fellow Who plays without cheating; Who doesn’t show- yellow When given a beating; Who’ll take without sighing The luck that is showing; Who’ll lose without crying And win without crowing. 94 Boys’ B as ketball The games played by the High School basketball team were fast and interesting, although at times the F. H. S. quint was unlucky and lost several games by one point. More interest was shown in this great indoor sport the past season than ever before. Every game was largely attended and the true spirit of the High School was always shown. The season was a successful one and much credit is due to the players for their good team work, never-failing spirit and excellent sportsmanship. ys Baseball The popular outdoor sport of baseball has, in the previous year, been a marked success. Last year the team won the Second District championship and lost by a small margin the Virginia State championship. Captain Jenkins and Manager Billingsley have reported this year’s squad is ex¬ ceedingly promising, although three very valuable letter men are lost from last year’s team. Under the guidance of Coach Woodson, the team has determined to accom¬ plish even more than last year’s “nine.” The baseball followers of the High School and fans of Fredericksburg expect a fine exhibition of playing, as F. H. S.’s team has never disappointed anyone. 96 INTERCLASS TEAMS 97 INTERCLASS TEAMS EHBRIilHBiRIBIIRIHlIBBiSgBSIBIESlB ■ ■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■»£»■ HRHIRIlHHIiiSIlSRIliaHRIHIIRaiRHRaii HRH ORGANIZATIONS Organizations bring a Variety of students together and, in so doing, teach us to vtfork and to play in unison.

The plays were remarkably well done in many of the finer points of acting, the scenes being gone through easily and with little “up-stage” play to the audience, giving the feeling of actuality, which makes good acting. In the matter of cleverness, there was little choice between the players, especially in the Roman School, which went to the conclusion, with no prompting, and there was practically none in the French play, which was perhaps, a little more dif¬ ficult. as the actors had to catch their own cues, this making it necessary for them to know almost the entire play. The study hall was well filled with a respon¬ sive audience, which received the plays with the applause they merited.
