CLASSES II. ATHLETICS III. ORGANIZATIONS IV. HUMOR FOREWORD E seniors, who are about to leave the sheltering walls and bright faces of F. H. S., take with us many fond recollections of happy days, of trying hours, and of sad moments, all of which we shall cherish, and long remember when we sail the wide and un¬ certain sea of life. This is our first parting of the ways. This is the brighter dawning of hope, slowly bringing into full light the future, which we await with a certain eager¬ ness, a certain fear, and above all, sweet memories of the past. Then our great comfort will be this, our “Rapahanoc,” reminding us of our apprenticeship, and holding forth our hopes of the successful master.

Sitting in the dusky silence Thinking on the coming night, And divining morrow’s weather By the simple signs in sight. Thus this aged, solemn graybeard Sits and ponders by his door, Sitting muses of the evenings Of the years so long before. Many evenings thus he spends Sitting in the quiet gloom, And the darkening curtain lends Magic meanings to the gloom. For he finds a still enjoyment In the evening of his life. Thus in watching eve’s denouement At the close of each day’s strife. Just as oft the sleeping darkness Takes the weary day to rest. Soothing with her dusky fingers Time ' s tired child upon her breast. So he yields himself to nature Calmly waiting till the night Shall have darkened all the land tcape Or the moon beams forth with light. Then he slowly goes within doors And prepares himself for bed, And then kneeling in the stillness. Humbly bows his hoary head. “God, I thank thee for the twilight And this peaceful life in age. And I would that thou would’st take me Thus into my life’s last page. Thou hast taught me by thy sunsets; By the death of nature’s days. That a man should seek his Maker [ 14 ] [ 16 ] Senior Class Motto: “In Omnia Fidelis” Colors: Purple and Gold Flower: Pansy President . Vice-President Secretary . Treasurer .

Or, lend to me the author’s pen That I in flaming words again Might paint for vou the thoughts I ken Of belov’d F. H. S. Four years within her hallowed halls We worked and played together, Now we must go—the Wide World calls, To brave still stormier weather. O that our future lives may be As joyous and as much carefree As the days when we learned the Rule of Three In belov’d F. H. S. We’ve said farewell to each loved room, From the study hall to the lab; And hallowed in our hearts a tomb With this ’graved on the slab— “The most glorious part of our youth lies here; All our innocent laughter, and many a tear And the plans and the secrets we held most dear At belov’d F. H. S.’’ LTpon our listening ears there comes A strain, now rich—now tender “On the banks of the Rapahanoc—” The song of our High School splendor. Can we ever forget those dear old days When our class has parted, and gone their ways And we listen in vain for our minstrel lavs Of belov’d F. H. S.? The time will come when each one prays “O Time, turn backward in your flight— Let me live over my high school days; Make me a Freshman just for tonight. Let me again get my first black mark. Let me again in a study hall talk, Let me disfigure the boards with chalk At belov’d F. H. S.” O Foster mother, F. H. S.! O Alma Mater true! We long to give our very best, Our all in all to you! Some day to come, we’ll all be back To honor once more the Gold and Black. We’ll come I though some perhaps, we’ll lack) To belov’d F. H. S. What though, perchance we no more meet; What though, too soon we sever? We’ll all of us have memories sweet To stay with us forever! So we bid you, teachers, a fond adieu. Four years you’ve stood by us firm and true Teachers, school-mates—all—adieu. Farewell, O, F. H. S.! —Alice Mitchell Scott. • JOHN BUTZNER ALLISON " Look, what a ' horse’ should have, he did not lack.” Athletic Association ' 23, ' 24, ' 25; Football ’23, ’24, ’25; Basketball ’23, ’24; President of Ath¬ letic Association ’25; President of F. Club ' 25; Treasurer of Junior Class ’24; Treasurer of Senior Class ’25. John is one of the regular fellows. " Horse,” as he is called on the athletic field, is one of our best players. He has helped to carry “ole F. H. S.” on to vic¬ tory on many a hard-fought ground. He is very popular, and there is a roar of applause whenever his name is praised. SARAH ELIZABETH BILLINGSLEY " The early bird catches the worm.” Athletic Association ' 22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Treas¬ ury of Sophomore Class; Secretary of Junior Class; Class Historian ' 22; Class Basketball Teams; Manager Class Basketball ' 23; Populus Romanus; Dramatic Club ’24; Kentnore Literary Society ’24; Junior League ’25; Advertising Manager " Rapahanoc” ’25. Betty ' s middle name is efficiency. When¬ ever there is any class work to be done it is well to consult her. ‘‘Betty B.” is always willing and right on the spot ready to help on all occasions. One feels that too much cannot be said about her. Her acts constantly spell a-b-i-I-i-t-y. SENIOR ClASS MARGARET LOUISE BREWER “See what a grace was seated on her brow.” Member of Athletic Association ’22; Member of Literary Society ’24; Member of Junior League ’25. The Senior Class indeed has its quiet members, but Margaret is the most mod¬ est and unassuming of us. Her ready smile and cheerful greetings are always in evidence. She is an earnest and faith- fid student who will always be remem¬ bered by her friends at F. H. S. LOTHER EDWARD DODD “H ' e live and learn, but not the wiser grow.” Populus Romanus ' 24; Cum Laude; Joke Editor of Latin Newspaper ’25; Junior League ’25; Dramatics (Latin); Athletic ’25, ' 24, ’25; Member of Kenmore Literary Society. Here is an old friend who has been with us from the first. He has fought with us through Caesar, listened spell¬ bound to Cicero and wandered from place to place with Aeneas. He has helped back up F. H. S. in everything that has been undertaken. A loyal and well- meaning student is Lother. SENIOR QMS DUFF GREEN ELIZABETH COLBERT CADOT Quips and Cranks and wanton Wiles, Nods and Berks and wreathed Smiles. Populus Romanus; Athletic Association ’22, ’22, ’24, ’25; Junior League ’25; Junior Basket¬ ball ’24; Business Manager Latin Newspaper ’25; Junior Football ’24; Latin Play ’24; Hi-Y ’22; Wilson Literary Society ’24; Sophomore Basketball ' 23. Duffy! Everybody looks sharp when Duff is about, for there ' s no telling what will happen. He has such a happy mix¬ ture of fun and frolic that it is irresisti¬ ble to keep from laughing when Duff starts something. If anything isn’t funny, it will be funny when he says or does it. lie has a host of friends who are betting on him for success. “I think it better to have two strings to my ‘bow’l " Kenmore Literary Society ’24; Junior League ’25; Athletic Association ’22, ’23, ’25; Societe Jeanne d’Arc ’24; French Play " 24, ‘25. Elizabeth is one of our vamps, although to those who know her she is as sweet and charming as possible, and quite harm¬ less indeed. Her winning personality ami attractive face give her a large circle of friends, among whom all the members of the Senior Class are numbered. XENIDR C1AXX FRANCES VIRGINIA CLIFT “Anything for a quiet life.” Junior League ’25; Kenmore Literary Society ’24. An excellent worker, loyal friend and faithful student brings to our minds im¬ mediately Virginia. She could be none other than herself, with a pleasant greet¬ ing or thoughtful expression for the proper occasion. Because of her retiring nature, we do not know Virginia as well as we should like to. IRA DAVID GRINNAN " The lad ’whose happy life Is one perpetual grin. " Athletic Association ’24, ’25; Sport Editor of “Spotlight” ’24; Wilson Literary Society ’24; Football ’25; Vice-President Senior Class ’25; Editordn-Chief “Rapahanoc” ’25; Junior League ’25. Ira is a favorite with everybody. His ready help and steady work in all our school activities have won for him de¬ served mention. A friend of all and a friend to all, the ready man on all occa¬ sions, he holds a unique position which could be filled by no other. We’re all right behind him with, “Attaboy, Bravo!” XENIDRCIAXX WILLIAM SOLOMON HAYDEN “Genius must be burn And never can be taught.” Treasurer Kenmore Literary Society ’24; Junior T.eague ’25; Poet of " Spotlight”; Junior Class Poet; Literary Editor ‘‘Rapahanoc’’ ’25. Wh le not of ail imposing appearance, William is indeed the student, poet, and serious thinker. That doesn’t mean he can ' t laugh, for he has created many hilarious moments for us. His favorite pastimes are reading the dictionary and enjoying a few minutes ' nap in Senior History. A loyal supporter of F. II. S. and a true friend, he will long be re¬ membered b his classmates. ELIZABETH HOLLODAY CROPP. “Slow, but sure.” Athletic Association ’24, ’25; Junior League ’25; Wilson Literary Society ’24; Picture ex¬ hibition ’23. About 9:30 Elizabeth drops into class a little Hurried, but smiling. She left home early, too, so she’d be on time. Though she lives in the country, she is very faithful to F. H. S. We wish you the best of things in life, and we are sure through your perseverance you will get them. SENIOR CLASS A MARY ALICE DAFFAN “Always in haste, blit never in a hurry.” Member Kenmore Literary Society ’23, ’24; Junior League ' 24, ’25. Here we have a rural lass from old Stafford. Mary knows how to grow vegetables and raise chickens. Her good nature and friendly spirit cannot be downed. If she has any trouble with her studies she’s going to have help if there is any one who can help her. We’re all right with you, Mary, and know that you will make good. CHARLES STRINGFELLOW HOOPER “Better go on foot than ride and turn over.” Athletic Association ' 22, ’23, ' 24, ’25; Junior League ’25; Hi-Y ’22; Wilson Literary Society ’24. Charles is a son of Caroline who comes in every day to be with us. Good nature is his most prominent characteristic. Charley is always in a pleasant humor, as if quiet liveliness were in his bones. First there is a twinkling eye, next a grin, and then a chuckle. We are glad to have h ' m, and will miss him much when he goes. SENIOR C1AXX ■«, " Calmness is not Always the attribute of innocence. " President of Senior Class ' 25; Junior League ’25; Varsity Football ' 25; F. Club ’25; Advertis¬ ing Editor “Rapahanoc” ’25; Manager Tennis Club ’24, ’25; Dramatic Club ’24, ’25; Vice- President of Sophomore Class ’24; Kenmore Literary Society ’24; Manager Interclass Basket¬ ball Champions ' 24; Manager Interclass Football Champions ’24; Editor-in-Chief “S; otlight’’ ’24; Reading Team ’24; Populus Romanus ’24; “Hi-Y” Club ’22; Athletic Association ’22, ' 2,?, ’24, ’25. Behold our Class President, a good com¬ bination of brains, willingness, and school spirit. Lemuel, though quite innocent¬ looking, makes sure to brush up an ac¬ quaintance with his books around exami¬ nation time. On the football field he ' s at his best, playing with an ease and dash that make many hearts on the side lines succumb. JOSEPHINE FISHER " Talk and Learn.” Athletic Association ’22. ’23, ’24, ’25; Societe Jeane d’Arc ’24; Populus Romanus ’24; Literary Editor of “Cat’s Whiskers ' ' 25; Junior League ’25; Wilson Literary Society ’24; Junior Or¬ chestra ’24; Art Editor of “Rapahanoc”; Cum I.aude ’23. Jo has a combination of fun, frolic, and seriousness in her head which shine through her eyes and are expressed in her lively good-natured ways. A poet, artist, and enthusiastic student—is enough said of her serious side. SENIOR OMS [24 | JENNIE LYNN GARRETT “A stitch in time s i-ves nine.” Athletic Association ’24, ’25; Junior League ' 25; Kenmore Literary Society ' 24. She is one of those little persons who become so associated with their names that these seem to imply all their char¬ acteristics. Jennie, along with the rest of us, has caught the cross-word puzzle fad, and always has one ready to work on when the time permits. It is a won¬ der to us all how she manages to get along so well with two years of Latin at the same time. CHARLES SIDNEY HUNTER, Jr. ‘‘On the sudden A funny thought hath struck him.” Joke Editor " Rapahanoc” ' 25; Varsity Foot- bail ' 24; President Junior I.eaguc ' 25; Sport Editor T.atinus Tribunus ' 25; President of Junior Class ' 24; Manager of Junior Basketball Team ' 24; Manager of Junior Football Team ' 23; Annual Representative ' 24; Wilson Literary Society ' 24; Dramatics ' 24; Secretary of Sopho¬ more Class ' 23; Hi-Y ' 22; Athletic Association ’22, ' 23. ' 24, ' 25; Cum Laude ' 22, ' 23. ' 24, ' 25; Tennis Club ’25; Populus Romanus ’23, ’24. Is there a new jest out? If so, tell “Chuck”—he ' s anxious to hear it. Mirth is his proper element; so don ' t deny him the pleasure. When he hasn’t anything to laugh about you may know he ' s trying to find something funny. Telling some¬ thing in class that is too good to keep has caused him many a demerit. He is a good student, a game athlete, and is very popular. SENIOR CIAXX [ 25 ] JOHN ROBERT KI LI AN ‘For he lives twice who can nt once em¬ ploy The present well, and e’en the past en¬ joy. " “Hi-Y” ’22; President of Societe Jeanne D’Arc ’24; Cum Laude ’24; Junior League ’25; Athletic Association ' 23, ’24, ’25; Kenmore Literary Society ’24. LUCY VERNON GOULDMAN ' Sport that wrinkled care derides.” Kenmore Literary Society ’24; Junior League ’25; Athletic Association ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Basketball ’24; Captain Baseball ' 24; F Club ' 24. Here is one you may depend on, loyal and true and staunch to the last to his friends. He aspires with integrity to a sturdy manhood. Robert delights in the pleasure and companionship of his class¬ mates, hut at heart you will find him a serious and steadfast student. Ever and anon, Lucy carries the holi¬ day in her eve. Her work with our bas¬ ketball team is excellent. She is an en¬ thusiastic player and a good sport, a boon comrade with a genial How r of spirits. SENIOR QMS K [ 26 ] MAY ADELAIDE HERNDON “Devout and pure, Happy, steadfast, and demure.” Athletic Association ’25; Junior League Kenmore Literary Society ’24. GEORGE MORRIS “Oh! this learning, what a thing it is.” Hi-Y Club ’22; Societe Jeanne D ' Arc ’24; Class Baseball Team ’22; Athletic Association ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25. Here Is another addition to our quiet list, and with such a friendly smile and ready " Hello.” Adelaide is so neat and prim she would put the most particular old maid to shame. Her classes show the result of many hours of study, while her gifted fingers form any number of things pleasant to the eye and palate. Forever entertained are those who can always be interested and satisfied with the drama of life about them. George is one of our grave Seniors who let the old world flicker on, content to stand by and quietly observe. He, however, is full of pleasing good nature, and is al¬ ways ready with a cheerful, friendly greeting. SENIOR CLASS [ 27 ] THOMAS SI I. VAN US MORRISON “Winning, never boasting; Losing, never does the least excusing.’ Athletic Association ’21, ’22, ' 23, ’24, ’25; Football ’22, ’23, ’24; Manager of Football ’23, ’24; Athletic Council ’24, ’25; F Club ’24, ’25. Watch him close in a rough-and-tumble game of football, and you will recognize a real player. Tom is a rough gridiron star, one of the mainstays of the foot¬ ball teams. He is always in the thickest of the struggle and has proven himself a man in many an encounter. When not on the gridiron, we find him a steady, earnest fellow and a warm - hearted friend. STUART KELLOGG LESHER “Actions speak louder than words.” French Play ’25; Societe Jeanne D’Are ’24; Athletic Association ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Junior League ’25; Tennis Club ’25; Woodrow Wilson Literary Society ’24. Quietness is a virtue of p- v class. Here is another young lady who says very lit¬ tle, but, oh! how much her report cards sav for her. Stuart is always ready to join in any place to help F. H. S. She’s right there to root for the teams, and to take an active part without being too con¬ spicuous. SENIOR ClAXX ir ▼Jr - ’, v _ •» T [ 28 ] EDNA FRANCES McGAHA “A merry heart goeth all the day. ' Junior League ’25; Societe Jeanne D’Arc ’24; French Play ’24, ’25; Kenmore Literary So¬ ciety ’24. There ' s plenty of pep to Edna. She ' s full of life and loves sports. She never misses a game if she can help it, but is right there rooting for our team when¬ ever a game is on. Edna is a loyal and true friend, a real worker, a dependable little woman. THOMAS BLACKBURN PAYNE “Impu hive, earnest, prompt to act, And makes his generous thought a fact.” Historian Freshman Class; Athletic Associa¬ tion ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Class Football ’23, ’24; Secretary Wilson Literary Society ’24; Societe Jeanne D ' Arc ’24; Athletic Editor “Cat’s Whiskers” ’25; Tennis ’24, ’25; Latin Play ' 24; “Endymion” ’24; Varsity Football ’25. Common sense, good nature, and humor, help to give us a picture of Thomas’ school life. He takes an active part in athletics, playing both football and basket¬ ball and, of course, he dances. At one time he can be a gallant Southern dandy, at another time an earnest student, bus} ' on an examination. SENIOR CIAXX VIRGINIA BRAGDON MELTON " Joy arises in me like a summer morn Athletic Association ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Junior League ’25; Associate Editor ’24, ’25; Poetic Editor “Cat’s Whiskers’’ ’25; Class Basketball ’22, ’23, ’24; Vice-President Class ’22; Secre tary Senior Class ' 25; Half-Wits ’25; Woodrow Wilson Literary Society ’24; Populus Romanus ’24; Societe Jeanne D’Arc ’24; Cum Laude Manager Class Basketball ’23; French Play ’24 Tennis Club ’24, ’25; Editor-in-Chief “Spot light” ’24. If Virginia were to look sober for a while, we would be uneasy for fear that there was trouble somewhere. She is always cheerful and smiling. Many are the occasions when her cheerfulness has brought sunshine into the classroom. Back of her smile is optimism, good fel¬ lowship, and a brilliant intellect. XENIDR OAXX v MARVIN HARRIS ROBINSON “Behold our ready reckoner. " Junior League ’25; Athletic Association ’25. Ibis brilliant member of our class comes from Spotsylvania, joining us this year. Although not as long with us as we could have hoped, he lives up to the highest scholastic standard of F. H. S. MARGARET ELIZABETH MONROE “ should t worry.” Kenmore Literary Society ’24; Athletic As¬ sociation ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Junior League ' 25. Margaret comes to us from old Stafford. She is buoyant, warm-hearted, and liked by all for her pleasantry and good humor. Often she has figured on a program to entertain for us. When she plays the harmonica she makes us want to dance. MAURICE F1TZHUGH ROWE “The nursery still lisps in all they utter.” Populus Romanus ’24; Hi-Y ’22; Historian Junior Class ’24; Class Basketball ’24; Class Football ’24; French Play ’24; Latin Play ’24; ' Editor-in Chief “Cat’s Whiskers” ’25; Track Team ’24; Cum Laude ’23, ’24; President Wil¬ son Literary Society ' 24; Societe Jeanne D’Arc ’24; Athletic Association ' 22, ’23, ’24, ’25. “Fitz” is one of our smaller members, but he holds his own with the rest of us. He takes part in sports and is a game little chap, fond of playing the game, even though he gets roughed. He calls his lessons battles, yet he gets along finely in his studies. Fitzhugh enjoys a pun or a witticism and has added much to our school life. XENIDRCIAIX JOSEPH ORSON STUART “J ly content is my best having. " Athletic Association 24, 25; Woodrow Wilson literary Society 24; Member of Junior League 25; Jeanne D’Arc 24. Orson has been with us only two years, and comes from the country, but he easily worked his way into our class. He may seem very reserved when first met, but soon proves to be a good sport and loyal backer of F. H. S. THELMA LENORA MOODY " In the spring a young girl ' s fancy Lightly turns to thoughts of love. " Secretary of Freshman Class 22; Secretary of Junior Class 24; Athletic Association 25; Tennis Club 25; Secretary of Junior League 25; Kenmore Literary Society 24; Literary Editor of " Spotlight ' 24. Ve know Thelma is coming by her " Hi, there,” sounding merrily down the hall. A very happy anti gay person is this with her blue eves, light hair, and always smiling mouth. Her lovable quali¬ ties have won her many lasting friends at F. H. S., and we feel sure she wili live up to our expectations. SENIOR ClAII •« ELLA NANCY OLIVE " Sweet as lowe, Are the remembrances of generous deeds’ Kenmore Literary Society ’24; Junior League An enthusiastic student, loyal to her school and class, and a good friend, help to give an idea of Ella. She never gets below Exc. in her studies, and doesn’t make all the fuss about studying and passing that some people do. When you know her, then you realize how much fun she is and what a good sport she can be. WEBSTER PASCHAL SULLIVAN " He was the mildest mannered man That ever scuttled ship or cut a throat Athletic Editor " Rapahanoc” ’25; Varsity Football ’24, ’25; Varsity Basketball ’23, ’24, ’25; Baseball ' 22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Athletic Asso¬ ciation ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Athletic Council ' 25; Junior League ’25; Dramatics ’25; Societe, Jeanne D’Arc ’24; Woodrow Wilson Literary Society ’24; Hi-Y ’22; Class Basketball ’22; High School Circus ' 22. An accomplished athlete, Webster is an adept to all kinds of sport. “Sully,” as he is sometimes called, has made good on every team of the high school, and never has failed to distinguish himself in doing his best in battle for his team. We can wish him no better future than that he will stand as firm and meet things as resolutely as he has on the athletic field. SENIOR ClAXX [ 33 ] WHEELER TERRELL THOMPSON " It is better to learn late than never.” Hi-Y ' 22 ; Dramatics ' 22 ; Varsity Basketball ’22, ' 23, ’24; Tennis ’22; French Play ' 22 ; Class Basketball ’23, ' 24; Varsity Football ’24, ’25; “F” Club ’24, ’25. MARGARET HENRIETTA PEPME1ER “Content myself to do unbounded good.” Athletic Association ’25; Kenmore Literary Society ' 24; Junior League ' 25; Class Basket¬ ball ' 24. Here is “Bus,” who has a record for saying the fewest words a day. A very good athlete and student, you would ex¬ pect nothing less than a good sport in every sense of the word, and that is ex¬ actly what you find. There is no time to count the number of girls who have pined because of Wheeler ' s not noticing them. SENIOR CLASS Margaret is quiet and studious. Though she keeps out of the throbbing current of our life, yet she is a loyal Senior, ready to help the class when the occasion comes. She is a first class student of Domestic Science, and no doubt she will be an effi¬ cient and deserving little housekeeper. [ 34 ] MARIAN AUGUSTA REED “Fair was she to behold that maiden of seventeen summers.” Literary Editor of “Rapahanoc” ’25; Athletic Association ’22, ’24, ’25; Tennis Club ’24, ’25; Captain Class Basketball ’24; Wilson Literary Society ’24; Junior League ’25; Class Basket¬ ball ’22, ’24; French Plays ’24, ’25. Memories of Southern climes and Pa¬ cific isles cling to Marian. A bit of her life has been spent in Honolulu. She is a favorite classmate, true friend, zealous student, a pleasant and attractive young person. She is one of the few who hold to the tradition of long hair, refusing to have her golden locks bobbed. BLANCHE JULIAN RUSSELL “They are only truly great who are truly good.” Athletic Association ’23, ’24, ’25; Tennis Club ’23, ’24, ’25; Cum Laude ' 23; Basketball ’22, ’23, ’24; Wilson Literary Society ’24; French Club ’24; Junior Orchestra ’24; Junior League ' 25; French Play ’25. Blanche in an old-fashioned costume with wide bonnet and lace gloves is an exact replica of the far-famed Southern belle. Her slow speech and quiet gaiety have an irresistable charm that gives her a distinct place in the memories of her classmates. XENIDR E1AXX , £ | TJVKLI Mgg ..—I.. ALICE MITCHELL SCOTT " S ' ? uw airy, young, and gay, And loved to make a grand display.” Athletic Association ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Tennis ’23, ’24, ’25; Cum Laude ’22, ’23, ’24; Wilson Literary Society ’24; Societe Jeanne D’Arc ’24; Populus Romanus ’24; Oratorical Medalist ’24; Junior League ’25; Dramatic Club ’24, ’25; So¬ ciety Editor “Spotlight” ’24; Junior Orchestra ’24; Joke Editor “Rapahanoc” ’25; Society Editor “Cat’s Whiskers” ’25. Alice has a live-wire personality just bubbling over with life and mixing into everything. She is piquant and at times frivolous, always with lots of poise, and talented in entertaining, playing and act¬ ing equally well. FANNIE DOGGETT SCOTT ‘‘Be thyself, plain, impartial, true.” Athletic Association ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25; Cum Laude; President Kenmore Literary Society ’24; Vice-President Junior Class; Junior League ’25; Photograph Editor “Rapahanoc” ’25. Fanny is a true student and energetic worker. She has helped the class along in many ways too numerous to mention.

CIAXX [ 39 ] innate of tfje Class of ’25 VERY pansy takes life from a tiny, rough seed, very insignificant in appearance. So every graduate must begin High School life as a Freshman. The cold, damp earth seems very strange to the little pansy seed, at first, just as the High School is frighteningly unfamiliar to the “P reside.” However, as time passes these surroundings become more and more familiar to both the pansy seed and the Freshman, until they begin to love and honor their foster home. When we, the class of ' 25, entered F. H. S., we were all seized by that feeling of awe and wonder which possesses the soul of the pansy seed when it is buried in the earth. We, too, were frightened by the obstacles before us, but by courage and faith those obstacles have been overcome. In the place of the pebbles and hard earth which the pansy had to struggle against we found other terrors. We, from the Elementary School, were buried in piles of formidable books, entitled, Fatin, Algebra, History, and English. Just as the pansy seed received a drop of water to encourage growth, so we were given kind words of encouragement by our tender gardeners, the faculty of F. H. S. Then after many trials a tiny green sprout burst through the coat of the pansy seed. Thus we burst the bonds of our Freshman year and passed into the great unknown—the Sopho¬ more year at High. The second stage of its growth is the most difficult for the pansy, for the little green sprout must push its way up through the earth to the air. We, also, found our second year to be the most difficult. Most of us encountered as our first obstacle, the art of reading Caesar! But, behold, the tiny green sprout has pushed against a truly hard clot of clay. We, too, feel the effect, for there beside us stands Second Year Algebra — the horror of every Sophomore. Through the careful guidance of our beloved head gardener, Mr. Dickinson, most of us managed to break the clay and pass through. This brought the pansy sprout out into the open air and brought to it the first ray of sunshine, just as it brought to us our first real pride and happiness—for we were then Juniors. The pansy plant, now, really begins to enjoy life, for although there are still many difficulties to be met, there is much joy brought to it by the sunshine and the music of the birds. As the third stage is most joyful to the pansy, so was our Junior year the jolliest for us Our class was well represented, in both the literary and athletic activities of the school. Our greatest literary achievement was the “High School Spotlight’’ published by the Junior class of 1924. We are proud to say that this was the only paper to be issued by one class during our whole High School life. But now, we see a tiny bud bursting forth from among the green leaves of the pansy plant, and this warns us that our Senior year is at hand. At the time when the pansy is bursting into full bloom we may truly say that it is rewarded for all its struggles by the beauty of its blossom. Our Senior year has also brought forth the fruits of our labor. Our studies this year have been made most delightful, and we have received the full co-operation of our gardeners in all our undertakings. Whatever successes we may have achieved have been in a large degree due to the careful guidance of these, our friends. And now, while the dainty pansy is proclaiming the joyful mes¬ sage of Spring, we, too, have a message to give. To our school¬ fellows we wish to say that in the four years of High School life, lies the opportunity which will never be offered again. Seize it! For school days come but once. And to everyone we say, in the words of Rabbi Ben Ezra—in life, “See all, trust God, nor be afraid.’’ —Margaret Williamson. liropfjecp of 1925 ATE one summer afternoon, I left Richmond determined to reach Fredericksburg before the night grew too late. Many years had passed since I had visited my old home, and as my car sped along in the gathering dusk, my mind in anticipation pictured the familiar places I would see. They would look much the same as far as all out¬ ward appearances were concerned. Of that I was certain. But the people who had endeared those places to me, the boys and girls with whom I had spent my high school years would perhaps be gone, and I wondered what life had brought to each one of them. Suddenly in the midst of my revery, my car stopped. I was alone on a country road with no help in sight. As I looked about nervously in the night, which had now settled over me with a vengeance, my fears were relieved by the sight of a tiny light peering through a grove of trees. I started eagerly toward it. Perhaps the light came from a cottage where I might get some assistance. It was a beautiful moonlight night and one on which you would least expect to see spirits. You can imagine my fright, therefore, when I saw coming toward me, a thin, white, startling object. The subject of my revery came sud¬ denly back to my mind, and forgetting the errand on which I was bent, I determined to clear up, if possible, the question which the return to Fredericksburg had called up in my memory. —“Can you tell me of my old class at F. H. S., the class of ’25?” Spirit —“Yes. Probably I’ve seen them on my visit around the world.” I —“Did you see anything of John Allison?” Spirit- —“Oh! is that the boy who was seen so much with Vivian? They are at last married and are still seen walking the streets of Fredericksburg.” 1 —“How about Bettie Billingsly?” Spirit —“Why, I saw Bettie happily keeping house for her brother, a General in Japan.” I —“Did you see Margaret Brewer? I lost track of her.” Spirit —“Oh! Margaret, being so quiet, is now making a fine minister’s wife.” ft [ 42 ] 7—“Then there was Lother Dodd—did you see him?” Spirit —“Yes, and from all appearance he is diligently working to become the golf champion of the world.” I —“There was Virginia Clift, who was always so voiceless in chemistry.” Spirit —“Oh! she is a country school inarm and as strict in making her pupils speak loud as Miss Kennedy was with her.” 7—“Don’t forget Charles Hooper, who was so proud of studying.” Spirit —“Why he has set up an automobile repair shop, thinking it less ex¬ pensive to own it himself.” —“What of Elizabeth Cadot and Lemuel Houston? In school they were always together.” Spirit —“They are still together, judging from their being seen last night at a society ball, at which they were the leading figures; probably due to Lemuel’s being such a successful writer of poetry.” 7—“Then there was Thelma Moody. What became of her?” Spirit —“Thelma! Oh! yes. I saw her standing in the doorway of a cute little rose-covered bungalow awaiting her husband’s return.” 7—“What of the other couple, Madelaine Wheeler and Thomas Morri¬ son ?” Spirit —“You will find that ‘Dan Cupid ' keeps them faithful postmaster and wife, but instead of his driving to meet her mornings she goes to bring him home.” 7—“Can you tell me of Mary Daffan ?” Spirit —“Oh! Mary teaches in a country school also, where, remembering how she suffered from excess of work in F. H. S., she gives so few lessons that she will always be remembered as an ideal school-teacher.” 7—“Well, what became of Margaret Williamson and Duff Green ?” Spirit —“Oh! as 1 glided over a large concert hall in New York I found Margaret, now a great singer, accompanied on the piano by Blanche Russell, while Josephine Fisher played the violin obligato. Duff, as would be expected, was found, a prosperous young business man, waiting in the front row the rise of the curtain.” 7—“Can you tell me of Thomas Payne and Orson Stuart?” Spirit —“Thomas had succeeded in becoming such a fine doctor that he gets patients from all Fredericksburg and the surrounding country. However, Orson Stuart, now a farmer and raiser of prize onions, remains true to his former state¬ ment that Thomas shall never doctor him.” 7—“What is Margaret Pepmeier doing now?” Spirit —“Why Margaret may be seen any day at the Mary Washington Hos¬ pital, where she has become a most successful nurse.” —“What of Fitzhugh Rowe?” Spirit —“Why Fitzhugh is professor of the State Teachers College, along with others of your class; Helen Vandenburg is math teacher; Virginia Melton Latin teacher, and Lucy Gouldman basketball coach. Ella Olive is French teacher, and Edna McGaha, as head of the dramatic department, devotes her time to the giving of French love plays. Elizabeth Cropp is biology teacher, and Julia Troian, as English teacher, directs the senior class, because of the attrac¬ tion of helping to select class rings.” I —“Then there was William Hayden and Robert Kilian.” Spirit —“Oh! Robert is managing a J. C. Penny Co. store, while William is editor of a big daily paper, in which he allows the poetry to be written by him¬ self only.” I —“Well, how about Margaret Monroe? What is she doing?” Spirit —“Why, Margaret, with her mouth-harp, has finally found success as leader of a jazz orchestra.” —“What ever became of Fanny and Alice Scott?” Spirit —“Why, Fanny has become head buyer for Miller Rhoads, while Alice, now famous on the stage, has still more boys at her feet than she had in high school.” I —“Where is Marion Reed?” Spirit —“Oh! Marion has married a naval officer and a notice in the Daily Star informs us they will settle in Honolulu.” I —“What is Wheeler Thompson doing?” Spirit —“Why, he has succeeded to his father’s business and is often seen driving some of his colored trucks toward the State Teachers College.” —“Did you see anything of Helen Perticone?” Spirit —“Oh! yes. She has finally obtained her great desire and is visiting in France.” I —“Well, what ever became of Webster Sullivan?” Spirit —“Webster has a fine position as purser on an ocean liner.” —“Can you tell me what George Morris is doing?” Spirit —“He is still behind the counter of the A. P., but soon expects to be transferred to the management of the new A. P. in Falmouth.” I —“What is Charles Hunter doing?” Spirit —-“Charles is now an athletic coach and puts his avoir du pois to some purpose kicking a football.” —-‘How is Ira Grinnan making out?” Spirit —“Why Ira has become a great lawyer and now sits on the throne of justice smiling on the fair ones in the courtroom below.” 31 V♦ v♦ W♦ V»•Z ' ♦ V-«131 —“Have you seen Jennie Garret in your travels?” Spirit —“Yes, and as in s chool days, she is devoted to reading novels and is now taking up her pen to improve on those she has read.” I —“What has become of Betty Winn?” Spirit —“Betty is married and no longer stresses the good points of boys, but picks out faults in the ‘chosen one ' .” I —“Then how about Florence Webb?” Spirit —“Why, Florence has entered upon her duties as a stenographer in a government department at Washington.” And then, as quickly and as quietly as it had appeared, the spirit glided into the grove of trees, thus breaking up my thoughts of past, present, and future.

CHORUS Just make us grave Seniors Grave Seniors so true, And this class, will just surpass, The Senior class gone before us; We’re true to the Black and Gold, Hail! Juniors are we So make us grave Seniors, True Seniors to be. I $ (? B JptStorp of junior Class HE old order changeth, yielding place to the new.” This holds good in our class, for many changes have taken place since our Freshman days. In the first year our President was Edith Boulware and our class teacher Mrs. Euliss. Taking the first step of the four with a bound, we o’er-leaped the diffi¬ culties that obstructed our path and gained the second height, the Sophomore one. Here Donald Whitbeck took the President’s chair, when Mrs. Blake, our class teacher, would surrender her place of supervision. Some of our class left us, but then others were added to our ranks. The next climb was a hard one to make, and it soon became evident that some of our numbers would be diminished ere the final goal could be attained. The rest labored falteringly on the steep pathway, hoping and working for the time to come when they should ascend one more round on the ladder of intellectual attainment. Wh en at last that day arrived and we had come back after three glorious months of holiday, we were strengthened by new students who had come to cast their chance with ours. That year Warren Farmer was President and Mrs. Courtney, as Junior teacher, took us in charge. After the examinations the sky of knowledge is somewhat clari¬ fied, the sunbeams seem a little brighter, the mists have fled a little farther away. We have spent many arduous days in patient study, the taper has full often grown dim and shadows danced in fantastic shapes upon the walls while we dug for priceless treasure. But recompense is near at hand. “Yet one more year” and Mr. Dickin¬ son will find, despite his “flunks,” that we know a little Algebra; Mrs. Courtney will teach a few more facts about Social Problems; Mrs. Williams will translate a little more Virgil; Miss Dalton will make us sew a little faster, and their role will be played, and their thoughts linger on the past, but as a distorted and bedimmed picture. Then those that have crammed not, so that in the final “Great Trial of Wit” they were found wanting and so condemned shall stay behind, but the chosen few shall pass into the high and mighty seats of the Seniors. They shall shine most marvelously, until there shall be bestowed upon them the right honorable reward of a diploma, and the name of Our Class of 1926 shall resound through the school forever and the future pupils shall sing aloud its praises. —Edith Boulware.

Looking back upon its many journeys—so many rivers crossed, and more than one of them forded in peril; so many swinging mountain roads; so many difficult steeps, and such long wastes of plains-—its past seems to be a golden augury of the success of its future. The foundations of our Hag were laid by the pilgrims, who, grown restive under political and religious oppression, sought the freeland. Then came the revolt against tyranny and the birth of an unconquer¬ able banner—the certainty of whose deathlessness made death sweet to those who fought for it. As they watched it rising and falling in its struggle for existence, the sight of that glorious banner floating in the breeze raised their spirits and inspired them with noble and cour¬ ageous sentiments. When at last it mounted into the peaks and crests of the inaccessible places it gave a soul to the new land, and the val¬ ley, though still in shadow, was transfigured. The Stars and Stripes was the first banner under which the true meaning of those immortal words, “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” was realized and understood. Our flag is the first that has never known defeat. The famous and the good, all have risen at its touch; the wind has carried from its folds the thistle-down of peace and sown it on a hundred hills and meadows far and wide. It has become the true emblem of the brotherhood of man in its new conception of friendship, the home and the fireside, increasingly holding a place in the hearts of its people. It is truly the guard and glory of the world. May the emblem of Liberty and Union from its triumphant seat, with sanctitude, triumph and honor, hless each valley, grove and coast; and may the unextinguished spirit of its illustrious founders animate our minds and plead against oblivion for its name. —Josephine Fisher.

Cer¬ tificates for thirty words a minute have been awarded to Evelyn Moody, Virginia Stevens and Audrey Stevens and a Bronze Medal has been awarded to Evelyn Moody. The penmanship class, not to be outdone by the typists, have won many Locker penmanship certificates.

This phase of school activity is well organized. Every mem¬ ber of the High School is entitled to membership in the Athletic Association. The controlling body is the Athletic Council, which is composed of the Principal- Athletic Director, and the many managers and captains of the vari¬ ous teams. The main sports of the school are: football, basketball and base¬ ball. This year’s football team was very successful; it was, however, not as successful as some of the former teams. Basketball, which has in previous years been practically the fore¬ most sport, had to be omitted this year, because of lack of a gymnasium. Baseball has for the past few years been the most successful of the three sports before mentioned. In 1923 the District Champion¬ ship was won, and the following year the school produced one of the best teams that has ever represented a Fredericksburg school. With the material for a team practically the same as that of last season they are out to make a bid for all honors offered for this season. Now with this explanation fresh in your mind you may without hesi¬ tancy turn the pages and review a few of the participating bodies. —W. S., Athletic Editor.

H. S.” Quite a few of our best players returned last fall to strengthen and add to the glory of the already famous Fredericksburg nine, while a few others journeyed off to prove their ability to play baseball in institutions of higher learning. Due to the able coaching of Mr. Corbin the F. H. S. nine have prospered in spite of a few discouraging games played on muddy diamonds. During these games the boys fought regular mud battles. Out of the seven games they have lost only two. The boys fell victims to Culpeper and Episcopal High—not that these teams were better players, but just the fact that sometimes our boys play better than other times. Every team has its day, and our nine won over Benedictine, McGuire, Woodberry Forest, George Mason and Alexandria. The reputation of these teams was blurred by brilliant and fast playing of the F. H. S. nine. Undoubtedly our team, also along with the student body acquitted itself in a memorable way so far as spirit was concerned. This characteristic of the 1925 team apparently aided it in turn¬ ing more than one victory, and demonstrated a spirit of clean sports¬ manship that I sincerely hope and trust will become a tradition in the histories of the future of “ole F. H. S.“ —Claire Freeman.

Wil¬ liams. It is not an easy task, but we are doing our best to put out an in¬ teresting paper. We are working with the motto, “N on nobis solus,” and hope this pa¬ per will be “Pro bono publico.” We have worked “Ab initio,” and we feel we have come a long way since we struggled over “Omnis Gallia divisa est in partes tres.” Now we are digging and plodding along through Vergil, wondering how a man could sing these hard pages of Latin; yet he opens his book with “Anna virumque cano,” and it seems as if he is going to sing on forever, “Sic transit mundus.”—F.

The play was given by students of F. H. S. for the benefit of the “Rapahanoc.” The cast was well chosen, and made for the success of the play, but the greatest credit is given to Miss Helen Crawford, who ably directed the production, assisted by Mr. Mack Cowan. Her untiring efforts and skill in shaping raw material into characters and acting that would do credit to professionals, was recognized by the audience. The High School greatly appreciated the work done by Miss Crawford. “Come Out of the Kitchen” has to do with the Dangerfield family of Virginia, who rent their home for the summer to revive the sad condition of finances. They rent to Burton Crane (Richard Gaffin), from the north, who brings as his guests Mr. Tucker (William Hayden), his lawyer; Mrs. Faulkner (Betsy Embrey), Mr. Tucker’s sister, and her daughter, Cora (Nancy King). The Dangerfield children have to take the servants’ place until they can get a white staff from outside. Olivia, alias Jane Ellen (Alice M. Scott), the Irish cook; Paul, alias Smithfield (Warren Farmer), the butler; Charles, alias Brindleburg (Brawner Bolling), the boy-of-all-work; and Elizabeth, alias Araminta (Dora Farmer), the maid. Mandy (Julia Troland), Olivia’s colored mammy; Randy Weeks (Webster Sullivan), the Dangerfield family lawyer, and Thomas Lefferts (Lemuel Houston), the poet and admirer of Cora, added touches of color to the play. The plot progressed with many complications until the bachelor dinner, when the ladies had left with their dignity ruffled. Then Jane Ellen gave herself away by several slips during the dinner, one of which sent hot soup down Mr. Tucker’s collar. Her descrip¬ tion of the supposed austere and stiff Olivia was entirely broken down when Crane solved the problem by saying, “Olivia, come out of the Kitchen.” V. t) ' i ) ) +i s t £ fj fl 2 t ' A ?

Excitement prevailed, and much trepidation was caused in th e hearts of the players. One old countryman on the side line rolled his quid to his other jaw and drawled laconically: “Put a stake down where you lost it, son, and go on with the game!” n Mrs. Blake (angrily)—“I shan’t speak to this class another time.” Student (with a sigh)—“Gee! what a relief.” □ Margaret —“Julia, don’t you know Mr. Dickinson is reading the Bible?” Julia —“Oh! that’s all right!

An excited photographer, on the lookout for personages of importance, hap¬ pened to see him. He rushed up to the astonished Senior, exclaiming: “Hey, you; are you descended from anybody?” n Every one who saw the parade of old vehicles on Kenmore Day seemed to think it very good, except that Fitzhugh Rowe’s Ford was accidentally left out. □ The Senior ' s Complaint We are not kindergarteners, Nor are we in the grades; We are the Seniors, dignified, Ready to go our ways. But what do you think they do with us At three and noontime, too; They line us up and march us down As babies used to do. — Jennie Garrett, ’25. □ Chuck Hunter (to S. T. C. student)—“Hi, cutie.” S.
