Page Nineteen What is high school? High school is a group of young people — eager, enthusiastic, ambitious — living fully in the present while preparing themselves for even more effective life in the future. It is a splendid cross section of youth with a variety of dreams, ideals, and hopes, but with the common goal of developing the personal qualities which will enable them to contribute to a society that demands the best of its citizens. Through participation in the wide range of experiences high school offers, they are able to grow intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually.

Page Eighty-seven ; - ■ - - What is high school? Primarily high school is the opportunity to grow in knowledge, in understanding, and in judgment. It is a meeting of minds with the consequent stimulus to intellectual growth. The mature mind of the teacher leads the student to ever higher levels of understanding and guides him in solving increasingly difficult problems. The meeting of minds between student and student in class discussions is a challenge to think clearly. Through reading and research, the student meets the minds of the great statesmen, scientists, scholars, poets, and philosophers of all ages. All of these experiences contribute to the achievement of intellectual maturity, the goal of the program of academics. Grammar, which is stressed in the sopho- more year, provides an intensive study of sentence construction, punctuation, and gram- matical principles. There is also emphasis upon the use of varied types of sentence struc- ture and upon the mastery of parallel con- structions. The program of grammar after the sopho- more year consists of review and encourages more complete mastery of correct and effective expression. Composition provides many op- portunities for the application of these princi- ples. ENGLISH johnny Roberts and Nancy Watson seem to be enjoying a private joke as they diagram sentences in sophomore English. Mrs. Caldwell familiarizes students Linda Tall, Annette Wil- cox and Jerry Hicks with famous authors studied in sopho- more literature. Sophomore English gives the student an acquaint- ance with various types of literature. A unit of myth- ology, which often includes the Odyssey, is taught to all sophomores. There is an intensive study of the poem Idylls of the King. Students get their first glimpse of Shakespeare in their study of Jidius Caesar. Among other works that are studied are Silas Marner, David Co f per field , and sometimes The Tale of Two Cities. The primary purpose of the course in Junior English is to acquaint the students with important American writers, both " old masters " and modern. American novels, short stories, poetry and drama are read. Enrichment of the course is done at the teacher ' s discretion. Among the extra offerings are some Shakespeare, Les Miserahles, and Antigone. Juniors study Moby Dick in detail. Great emphasis is placed on expository writing, and some classes do research papers. Talented students are encouraged to do extra writing. Carolyn Caudle and Philip Thorne receive a deeper understanding o£ Hugo ' s Les Miserahles through student projects in junior English. Page Ninety Senior English involves a study of English litera- ture from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present. A study of The Canterbury Tales acquaints the stu- dents with the literature of Medieval England. Emphasis is placed upon Shakespeare. A unit of tragedy is taught which includes Oedipus Rex and Macbeth. The works of modern British authors such as Hardy and Conrad are studied. Seniors are given a great deal of practice in exposition and re- search. The study of poetry— writing and interpre- tation—is carried on at intervals throughout the year. Patty Kelly shows Paul Tucker a representative of early English literature. Anita Hull locates the Sea of Galilee for Paul Brown as Miss Robinson looks Some of the world ' s greatest literature is contained in the Bible, and students of Bible learn to appreciate it as litera- ture. However, the great emphasis in Bible courses is upon learning the truths of the Bible and applying them to one ' s dailv life. Mrs. Freeh and Mrs. Morrison help seniors Dale Creighton and Wally Yarbrough with research techniques. Research Seminar is primarily for college- bound students. It consists of the gathering, organizing, and presenting of information on some subject relating to history or the social sciences. Students become acquaint- ed with standard research aids found in libraries and learn to use them. Where possible, students are encouraged to use primary materials in addition to secondarv materials. Research Seminar provides train- ing in note taking, making a bibliography, and writing long papers in the manner and style approved in most colleges and univer- sities. The use of formal style is empha- sized. Students benefit by the analysis and discussion of their papers. Sammy Todd and Mary Lee Hall discuss projects constantly on display in Miss Clegg ' s Latin class. The Latin department gives the student greater mastery in these things: ability to read and understand Latin, broader compre- hension of English, and greater understand- ing of people through contact with other civilizations. Four years of the study of Latin are offered. The first and second years aim to give the student a broad background in grammar. Many readings are selected from mythology and from the wars and journeys of Caesar. The next year presents the splendid speech- es of Cicero. Many views of Roman daily life are studied here. The poetry of Virgil depicting the wan- derings of the hero Aeneas and the begin- nings of a great empire offers the student an insight into the origin of many present- day customs and sayings. FOREIGN LANGUAGES Spanish courses at Garinger are designed to enable students to comprehend and to speak the language and to know and appre- ciate Spanish literature. The first and second years stress grammar, vocabulary build ing, and pronunciation. Although the third year course is largely a study of Spanish literature, it also includes composition, con- versation, and linguistic analysis. Among the literature studied in the third year classes is Don Quixote by Cervantes. Garinger offers three years of French. French I emphasizes the fundamentals of simple grammar. Records and tapes are used to Under the direction of Miss Fuller, students Karen Suitt, David Wilkin- son and Mike Langford benefit from the use of records in Spanish class. Colorful posters provide beneficial visual aids for students Tom Herman, Joan McCarty and Ronny Aldridge in French III. enable students to learn correct pronunciation and to master simple idioms. In French II the student proceeds to more advanced grammar. Through conversation and exposition he gains some proficiency in the use of the language. Reading in French contributes to his knowledge of French civilization, increases his comprehension of the language, and enlarges his vocabulary. French III, though largely a course in literature, also stresses conversation and exposition. Barbara Peckworth tapes excerpts from her research paper on Communism as Ray Bouley and Don White wait to record. American history is a required course of which the purpose is to inform students of their country ' s past so they will be better able to control its future. It gives them a thorough knowledge of the story of their country ' s growth from the colonization ol the New World to the present. Students learn to understand and appre- ciate the form of government under which they live by studying the growth of the idea of man ' s right to govern himself as it led to the American Revolution which brought independence and democracy to America. The study of other great crises— the Civil War, Reconstruction, and two world wars- enables students to appreciate the strength of the union and to feel pride as they watch their nation emerge and grow as a great world power. SOCIAL STUDIES Senior social studies is an elective course designed to consist of a semester of economics and a semester of sociology. During the first semester a survey of the principles and problems of economics includes production, determination of prices, international trade, labor and farm problems, and other economic systems such as communism, socialism and fascism. The second semester utilizes materials from sociology, anthro- pology, psychology, and political science to studv human nature and the structure of prehistoric and contemporary societies. In world history, Mrs. Lewis explains to Charlene Vincent a correction of her term paper while Luther Moore waits to ask a question. Through the use of fossils and books, Mrs. Freeh gives students Diane Hollenbeck, Jimmy Hollar, Tim Krobath and Jimmy Freeze a better understanding of prehistoric man. Beginning with prehistoric man, the student studies the origin and development of ideas, form of government, and institutions which are the basis of our life today. Past civilizations, including the Egyptian, Greek and Roman, are studied to gain insight as to how nations gained an advanced culture and why they declined. An understanding of past experiences in the progress of man can help give us a perspective in applying historic principles to present problems. In this brief survey of man ' s achievements and failures, we can better understand how to inculcate those ideals which will insure America the demo- cratic leadership of the future. Garinger ' s mathematics department gives practical training in mathematics for students whose formal education will end with high school as well as for those who will continue their education at the college level. However, great emphasis is placed upon providing a strong foundation for college mathematics. Both solid geometry and trigonometry are subjects which challenge the superior student. They are electives, chosen usually by college preparatory students who plan to study engi- neering or to major in mathematics. Solid geometry develops an understanding of three dimensional concepts. It includes topics such as lines a nd planes in space, lateral and total areas of solids, volumes, and practical prob- lems. Trigonometry includes topics such as the trigonometric functions defined as ratios, the principal algebraic relations between them and their application to the solutions of right, scalene, and oblique triangles, logarithms, graphs of the trigonometric functions, prac- tical problems, and analytic trigonometry. Mr. Karl Sawyer explains basic trigonometric functions ti McGinnis. students Linda Cammer and David MATHEMATICS f% M Students Ginny Hunter and Ronnie Payne enjoy constructing figures under the supervision of Mrs. Smith. Since a knowledge of algebra is necessary to success in all ad- vanced mathematics, college preparatory students study at least two years of algebra, and many elect to take the semester of col- lege algebra which is offered. Algebra supplies the language and is the principal tool of all mathematics above the level of arithme- tic. The study of algebra is an effective introduction to logical thinking, and provides training in neatness, order, and diligence. Graphing equations is a vital part of algebra as Darrell Carlton and Brenda Beaver have discovered. Every college preparatory student is required to study one year of plane geometry. In this course the student begins with a few accepted mathematical axioms and postulates and progresses to proofs of theorems and related problems, all of which are developed by using reasoning patterns of logic. Throughout the course, the principles of solid geometry that correspond to the plane ones studied are introduced. Page Ninety-four Physics is an elective open to juniors and seniors who have had at least two years of algebra. As taught at Garinger, phy- sics is a high-level high school course consisting of units in mechanics, properties of matter, heat, sound, light, electricity and magnetism, atomic physics, electronics, quantum optics and nuclear physics. In order to learn more about the structure of marine life, Herbert Hartman and Jerry Hicks examine dissected organisms. One year of biology is required of all Garinger students. Many college preparatory students, especially those who ex- pect to major in science, take Biology II. Biology enables the student to learn the relationships which exist between organisms in nature. Representatives of the principal animal and plant groups are examined and life cycles are compared. Special emphasis is placed upon the anatomy and physiology of the human body. 1 Iampton Hager and Lewis Hooper observe with pleasure the success- ful results of their physics experiment. Debby Lazarus and Beverly Walters use the balance to weigh the carbon dioxide which they have collected in their chemistry experiment. SCIENCE Chemistry I gives the student elementary and fundamental concepts of general chem- istry, mostly in the inorganic field. In the first semester, students are taught to write chemical formulas and equations, as well as to develop laboratory techniques. During the second se- mester, students study specific elements, quali- tative analysis, and some organic chemistry. Chemistry II is designed to give interested students further information on fundamentals. Individual laboratory work is given, including frequent and extensive use of the analytical balances. During the second semester, stu- dents study qualitative analysis and organic chemistry. Mechanical drawing is only one phase in the industrial arts field. Because of limited shop facilities, Garinger can offer only Me- chanical Drawing I and Mechanical Draw- ing II, In Mechanical Drawing I, emphasis is placed on lines (weights and types of line), lettering (sizes and slopes), and dimensioning. Proper use of scale, triangles, erasing shield, T-square and board is stressed. Mechanical Drawing II for the first semes- ter is a continuation of Drawing I with an increase in the difficulty of problems. The second semester is architectural drafting with particular emphasis on the planning and draw- ing of a complete set of house plans. Although mechanical drawing is designed primarily for vocational students, it is of par- ticular benefit to pre-engineering students. lohn Glenn uses various instruments to construct house plans in mechanical drawing. VOCATIONAL Garinger offers a program in industrial cooperative training for students who wish to enter an occupation before they grad- uate from high school. Through I.C.T. students receive on-the- job training and professional assistance in their chosen occupa- tion. The related study activity is one of the most important phases of the I.C.T. program. General and technical material is provided for use in giving the student information essential to the occupation. The technical information is provided on an individual study basis in order to afford every student an oppor- tunity to gain competence in this phase of his occupation. Mr. Doster gives I.C.T. students George Smith, Barry Helms and fimmy Barnes a gentle warning about grades. D.E. student Warren Greene spends halt training. the da- obtaining on-the-job Distributive education students participate in a co-operative vocational program. They go to school half the day where they complete the required subjects and two courses in D.E. The last half of the day they receive valuable training on the job. Through D.E. students study the economics of distribu- tion, the organization of business, financial practice and money management. From the broad curriculum offered by Gar- inger, typewriting is elected by several hun- dred students each year. Some, especially col- lege-preparatory students, take it for its per- sonal values; others take it for its vocational values. College students who cannot type find it increasingly difficult to complete research pa- pers satisfactorily. The business executive, the professional worker, and even the housewife find it helpful to be able to type personal busi- ness letter, reports, records, and other items. Many of our high school graduates who study typing for two years find employment as stenographers, receptionists, and secretaries. Quite often they are able to advance to posi- tions with good salaries and with duties that require skill and responsibility. Students find typing very helpful in preparing for a business vocation or for college. Secretarial students Patsy Williams, Carole Overman, Kay Green and Sharon Adams operate office machinery in secretarial office practice. Secretarial office practice is the terminal course for secretarial students. A comprehensive course in filing is given; a working knowledge of calculating, bookkeeping, duplicating, and transcribing machines is offered; and many units of a practical nature are covered, such as: good grooming, office-style dictation, and getting and holding a job. After completing the course, students are qualified for recommendation for a secretarial position in any office. COMMERCIAL Shorthand is primarily a vocational subject, but it may have personal uses, especially for the college student who takes notes in shorthand. Those who complete two years of shorthand in high school are qualified to take dictation and transcribe it ac- curately in the business office. Mr. Privette dictates to shorthand students Carol Cross, Vickie Roper and Ruth Gordon. Foods is a semester course for girls who have had some home eco- nomics training and who are espe- cially interested in further study of foods. This course includes the art of setting an attractive table, the se- lection of appropriate tableware, and the preparation of foods. Stu- dents learn to prepare salads, sim- ple luncheons, and dinners for spe- cial occasions. In addition to learn- ing to cook, home economics stu- dents learn to be gracious hostesses and skillful homemakers. Miss Ryan directs Sherry House, Sandra Funderburke, Jackie Small and Wanda Grant as they make biscuits in foods class. HOME ARTS Since adequate housing makes a contribution to satisfactory home living, it is the purpose of this course to help students understand the problems of making a house a home from the economic, aesthetic, and practical point of view. Experience found in their present homes and in the homemaking department provide the background for their sense of values. Mrs. Boyd teaches students Billy Cole and Brenda Lewis to select adequate curtain material. Pat Macaulay helps Vickie Hunter tit tl made in clothing. las ]ust Being accepted by others is extremely important to the high school girl. The way a young person selects her clothes has a great deal to do with the way she feels and the way others judge her. Construction of her own clothes is not a necessity; yet it tends to give the girl the satis- faction of creation, the ability to judge quality in work- manship, and the chance to vary her wardrobe. ART To the students of Garinger, the art depart- ment has been a source of constant wonder and appreciation. The work of the students has been displayed throughout the year on the school bulletin boards. An increased interest in art by the students has made it necessary to extend the art department this year. Besides the regular courses in art and ceramics, a new course in painting is offered. Students in the art classes at Garinger are provided the opportunity and encouraged to experiment with and develop sensitivity to a variety of techniques and materials. Patty Giles, Pat Christenbury, Cynthia Livingston and Susan Greene have brought fame to Garinger by winning gold keys for their outstanding paintings. A student may specialize in the area of ceramics and painting. In Art I and Art II, class projects are created using watercolor, casein, tempera, and encaustic for paint- ings; clay and glazes for ceramics; and plas- ter, wood, and metal for sculpture. Other fields of art studied are drawing, printing and stitchery. Subject matter is as diverse as are the students ' interpretations of still life. Art students enioy creating objects from clay in ceramics. Beyond the personal satisfaction achieved from creative expression, students enjoy seeing their work ex- hibited in the school and at local and state exhibitions. Dianne Bethune, Diana Mull and Frances Martin demonstrate the art of sculpturing. Garinger ' s vocal music program en- ables a student to participate in organ- ized singing. In addition to actual vocal instruction, students receive some in- struction in music theory and apprecia- tion. Membership in the Garinger choir or chorus provides an opportunity for a student to contribute to the school life by participating in numerous assemblies and other programs. Choir members, under the direction of Mr. John Sanders, enjoy group singing. MUSIC At Garinger students are given an opportunity to learn to appreciate fine music of all kinds through music appreciation. This course includes a study of the history and literature of music. The lives of great composers and the times in which they lived are a vital part of this course. Music appreciation aims to create in the student an understanding of music. The course is based on study and listening rather than on actual performance. Mr. Stern helps violas master difficult thythms in orchestral music. Playing in the school orchestra is very beneficial to a student. He gains dexterity, a concept of tone, and mental alertness. An orchestra member learns to follow directions and to function as one part in an entire group working together for one purpose. Whether or not a student be- comes skillful in playing his instrument is not so impor- tant as is the fact that he does learn to appreciate fine music. This appreciation enables him to more fully enjoy concerts and symphonies as well as musical productions. Mr. John Sanders teaches music appreciation students Tommy Sparks and Richard Benzie by using records, books, and musical scores. One year of physical education is required, and most students fulfil] this requirement dur- ing their sophomore year. For boys such activities as calisthentics, tumbling, wrestling and weight lifting serve to develop physical fitness. Boys also learn to play touch football and volleyball, and engage in these sports on an intramural basis. Boys learn to build human pyramids in the tumbling unit taught in physical education. PHYSICAL EDUCATION Brenda Conder executes the shoot through, a stunt learned in the gymnastics unit of physical education. The girls engage in a number of group sports: tennis, field hockey, archery, volleyball, track and Softball. Intra- mural games add interest to the course. A number of extramural basketball games have been played this year. Girls ' physical education is designed to achieve physical fitness and dexterity, and to develop good posture and grace- fulness. The varied activities in physical education classes include calisthentics, tumbling and modern dancing. Physical education students enjoy the unit on modern dance which is being taught for the first time this year. What is high school? High school is fun! High school is also responsibility; it is work; it is service. High school is happy association with others, an experience in friendship, cooperation, dedication, and loyalty. It is an opportunity to grow in compassion; in the capacity to understand, to respect, and to appreciate other people; and in the ability to work together in the spirit of democracy. It is all of these things, which are provided by Garinger ' s fine student organizations and which are inherent in its many worth-while student activities. Mary Ruth Myers editor June Blalock business manager 1963 SNIPS CUTS To present an accurate picture of the school in all of its activities, and to capture and faithfully record the memories of the current year— these are the challenges ac- cepted annually by a small group of students, the yearbook staff. The task of producing the 1963 Snips Cuts began in the spring of the preceding year as staff members made decisions about the style of the book, arranged for the photography of seniors to be done during the vacation months, and organized the advertising campaign. The work continued through the summer as staff members sold advertising space, helped schedule senior pictures, and secured judges lor the beauty section. The opening of school brought a ceaseless round of activity— selling subscriptions, supervising the photography of underclassmen, selling picture packages, scheduling the photography of groups, identifying group pictures; and collecting, organizing, and editing the vast amount of information required to tell the Garinger story. Only a dedicated group of students could have achieved all that was necessary to create the 1963 edition of Snips Cuts.

THE Under the direction of Mr. Jack Stern, the Garinger High School Marching Band has had an- other active year. Those who attended football games in the fall were impressed with the splendid halftime entertainment presented by the band. The " Marching Wildcats " contributed to the suc- cess of Charlotte civic undertakings as they marched in both the Armistice Day Parade and the Carrousel Parade. After the football season ended, the group, func- tioning now as a concert band, continued to work extensively to master the basic fundamentals of music and instrumental techniques. Band members increased their familiarity with musical literature and their ability to appreciate good music. The band continued to serve the school and the community, as small ensembles were called upon to perform at various functions.

From time to time the choral groups perform in com- munity functions such as church festivals and Charlotte ' s beautiful Easter Sunrise Service. Their selections in the music department ' s annual Thanksgiving and Christmas concerts are always warmly received by the faculty and student audience. The big event of the spring season was the presentation of the musical comedy " Bells Are Ringing, " which was produced in cooperation with the orchestra.

The Key Club ' s most outstanding service to the school was its annual publication of the student di- rectory, a copy of which was given at no charge to each student and to each member of the faculty. This year the income from directory advertising provided the Key Club with enough money to meet publication expenses and a small profit to support other projects, allowing the Key Club to perform many outstanding services. The club supplied the jukebox in the cafeteria this year for the enjoyment of the student body. The Key Club enlisted the support of Garinger stu- dents in two significant community service projects. The boxes of clothing collected in the fall were sin- cerely appreciated, and the generous student response to the toy drive brought Christmas joy to many chil- dren in the Charlotte area. Funds raised through this year ' s Key Club Kapers provided the two two-hundred dollar scholarships given by the club this year. Wesley Ray discusses musical arrangements with Steve Griffin prior to the Key Club Kapers. Gary Baucom and Don White place student directories in teachers ' boxes for distribution to homerooms.

Among the many valuable services that the girls perform for the benefit of the school are decorating the stadium during football season, selling twirlies at all football games, selling corsages at the homecoming game, and working hard at carwashes to raise money for a scholarship given to a deserving senior on Honors and Awards Day. Their services extend, also, to the community. Their participation in the Heart Fund and the Easter Seal cam- paigns has been very effective. The G. G. S. girls also run the Mary Jo cart at Mercy Hospital and show films at the Charlotte Rehabilitation Center. But not all the activities of the G. G. S. are hard work. During the course of the year, members have many social activities. The beach trip is the last social event of the year. At this time the girls really have a ball.

The Adelphian club, a sophomore service organization, bases membership on service, charac- ter, friendship, and scholarship. Known for their service work, not only at Gar- inger but throughout the city, members find pleas- ure in collecting for the Heart Fund, working in the children ' s wards at local hospitals, serving at the Senior Banquet, and being responsible for the school flag. Selling football programs, working at the Char- lotte Summer Theater, washing cars, and collecting old papers help to finance the club ' s activities. In the spring the Adelphian Club gives a one- hundred dollar scholarship to a deserving senior girl. Tanelle Weir and Jayne Boyd perform the daily Adelphian duty of raising the flag.

High School for Garinger ' s students this year was an extraordinary experience in international understanding and fellowship. The school was host for two weeks in October to thirteen students from Peru who lived in the homes of Spanish students and attended classes with them. Garinger " Amigos " were members of a group of thirty- nine students from Arequipa and Lima, Peru, who were selected on the basis of scholastic excellence and lead- ership in their own schools. Their visit to Charlotte was sponsored bv the Charlotte Observer for the purpose of adding to understanding between the people of the Americas. ' Amigos " look forward to a day of sight-seeing while their hosts anticipate a day of meeting their classes, as usual. What is high school? High school is competition. It is the joy, the excitement, the challenge of playing the game ! It is a display of determination, stubbornness, courage — the fighting spirit. It is the thrill of victory, the sting of defeat, and the sportsmanlike ability to take either in stride. High School is also the suspense of watching the contest. It is the ecstasy of cheering the team in victory and the loyalty to keep on backing the boys when the going is rough. High school is the opportunity to develop and to exercise the qualities of fairness, good sportsmanship, loyalty, and courage, whether as player or as spectator, in a program of interscholastic athletics.

Hampered by inexperience, the Wildcats won only four of ten games; however, improvement was apparent as the season progressed, and victories in the last two games brightened the close of the season. This year was profitable in developing some fine prospects for next year ' s team. Garinger 6— East 7 The Wildcats started the season by losing a heart- breaker to East. East scored the first touchdown of the game when an East player intercepted a Cheatwood pass on the Garinger 19-yard line and carried it across easily. The p.a.t. attempt succeeded. Early in the fourth quarter, Garinger drove deep into East territory. Cheatwood handed off to Van Kelly for the touchdown. The extra point was wide, and the final score was 7-6. Garinger 0— Myers Park 12 Early in the game, Garinger realized that the Mustangs were a tough foe; however, the teams were deadlocked in a scoreless tie when, during the second quarter, the game was interrupted by a violent storm that sen t most of the spectators home. When play resumed twenty minutes later, the tide ap- peared to turn in favor of the Mustangs, who quickly took the ball over for the first score of the game. The try for extra point was blocked. Later Garinger recovered a Myers Park fumble on the Mustang 20-yard line. The tough Myers Park defense, however, caused the Wildcats to lose the ball on downs. With 7:10 left in the game, the final Mustang touchdown put Myers Park ahead 12-0. At the annual football banquet, four outstanding members of the team received awards: Denny Scruggs, most val- uable; Van Kelly, best back; John Whaley, most improved; Steve Caldwell, best lineman. Page One Hundred Forty-nine Cheatwood hands off to Payne for good yardage in the game against Salisbury. Easterling, alert on defense, stops this Yellow Jacket for no gain. Garinger 7— South 0 The Wildcats battled the South Sabres to the first Gar- inger victory of the season. For the first three full periods of play, the teams held each other scoreless. For Garinger, Jerry Smith had supplied most of the motive power for the offense during the entire evening. In the fourth quarter, with 3:05 left in the game, the Cats battled down to the South two-yard line. Quarterback Phil Cheatwood, de- ciding to run Smith again, handed off to him over right tackle, and Smith scooted over for the only tally of the night. Gary Kinard made the extra point good. Garinger 21— Salisbury 18 The Wildcats entered the fourth game of the season with spirit and a swift-striking offensive squad. In the first quarter Salisbury scored on a 91-yard run. Denny Scruggs broke up the extra point try as he intercepted the pass in the end zone. On the next kickoff to Garinger, the Cats ' improved offense was noticeable. A pass from Phil Cheatwood to Ronnie Payne was completed for the first Garinger touchdown. In the second quarter the Wild- cats took advantage of a Salisbury fumble and were then set up in scoring position. On a long run, Van Kelly scored to put the Cats ahead. On the ensuing kickoff, Salisbury again fumbled, and Garinger recovered; a few plays later Kelly took a pass from Cheatwood for the third Garinger tally. Garv Kinard ' s third extra point of the night put Garinger ahead. With three minutes left in the game, a Salisbury line- man caught a fumble in the air and ran the length of the field for a T. D. A few plays later Salisbury converted another fumble into another touchdown. Garinger 13— Gastonia 26 The Wildcats suffered their third los s of the season to the mighty Green Wave, which scored on long runs the first two times they got possession of the ball. Behind 14-0, the Cats took to the air. Quarterback Phil Cheat- wood hit end Denny Scruggs and then halfback Johnny Whaley to drive down to the Gastonia two-yard line. Two plays later Cheatwood scored on a quarterback sneak. The p.a.t. was blocked and the halftime score stood 14-6, Gastonia. Early in the third quarter one of Cheatvvood ' s passes was picked off and set up another Gastonia score. Steve Caldwell blocked the extra point. On the next kickoff the Cats began a 65-yard drive that ended with Jerry Smith scoring from the seven-yard line. With spirits raised, the Cats tried an onsides kick which failed. Gas- tonia took over on the Garinger 42 and put the game out of reach. Jim Easterling blocked the try for extra point. Garinger 6— Asheville 7 The Maroons of Asheville held on to a one point lead to whip a determined Wildcat eleven. A Wildcat fumble in the first quarter gave Asheville the ball on the Garinger 41-yard line. A few plays later Asheville scored and made good the p.a.t. In the fourth quarter, Garinger took the ball on their own 43-yard line and began a sustained drive down the field. On the last play of the series, Phil Cheat- wood passed four yards to Johnny Whaley for the touch- down. The try for the p.a.t. was wide, and this made the difference. Steve Caldwell, Bobby Frickhoeffer, and Paul Sims played a strong defensive game for the Wildcats. Garinger 14— Ablemarle 20 Albemarle ' s long runs surprised the Cats with a 20-14 Bulldog victory. Albemarle took the opening kickoff and plays later on a ten-yard pass. The attempt for the p.a.t. failed. Late in the fourth quarter, the Demons put the game out of reach by scoring another touchdown and an extra point. Garinger ' s best drive came in the fourth quarter. The Wildcats drove to the 19-yard line where they lost the ball on downs. The biggest play in the drive was a 41-yard pass from Cheatwood to Smyre. Dale Baucom and Johnny Whaley ran well for the Cats. Garinger 28— West 6 The experience which the Wildcats gained during the season was evident as Garinger romped the Indians of West. Van Kelly took most of the honors, as he scored three of Garinger ' s four touchdowns. In the first quarter the Wildcats drove steadily down the field to the West 28-yard line; Kelly then scored on a reverse play. Gary Kinard kicked the p.a.t. The Cats scored again in the second quarter after an 86-yard drive, climaxed by a one-yard plunge by Jim Easterling into pay dirt. Kinard again added the p.a.t. The Cats took the kickoff opening the second half and marched down the field for another T.D. Kelly carried it over. The p.a.t. failed. West ' s only score came in the Garinger defense gives this Gastonia player no room to run. turned it into an 87-yard touchdown. The Wildcats then started a drive down the field for a touchdown, with Jim Easterling carrying the ball over. Gary Kinard kicked the p.a.t. Johnny Whaley received the second half kickoff for Garinger on the 15-yard line and raced 85 yards for the touchdown. Kinard kicked the p.a.t., and Garinger led 14-7. This lead was shattered, as the Bulldogs scored two touchdowns in the third quarter. Garinger got inside the ten-yard line several times but lacked a scoring punch. Garinger 0— Winston-Salem 13 The Demons of Winston-Salem Beynolds extended their winning string to seven as they defeated the Cats. Although the Cats put up a strong defense which allowed Reynolds only 122 yards on the ground, they could not get their offense working. The Demons got their first score in the second quarter. After blocking a punt on the Garinger 42-yard line and running it down to the 25-yard line, they scored several third quarter after a Garinger fumble. Bucky Smyre caught Bill Ellis ' pass in the end zone to add two more points for Garinger. The Cats ' final score was set up by a pass interception by Kelly. Several plays later Kelly car- ried it over from the four-yard line. Garinger 13— Harding 7 Garinger made it two straight as they ended the season with a 13-7 victory over arch rival Harding. Garinger opened the scoring early in the first quarter. Jimmy Mc- Millan blocked a Harding punt which went out of play on the Ram 14-yard line. Two plays later Kelly carried it over for the Cats. The kick failed and Garinger led 6-0. In the second quarter the Rams recovered a Garinger fumble and marched down field for the touchdown. The p.a.t. was good. Late in the second half, Kelly intercepted a Soloman pass and carried it to the Harding 27-yard line. Several plays later Kelly scored. Kinard kicked the p.a.t. Page One Hundred Vifty-cme Alton Widenhouse and Bob Godwin, coaches JAYVEE FOOTBALL The Garinger J. V. ' s, coached this year by Mr. Alton Widenhouse and Mr. Bob Godwin, gained experience which will be invaluable as they go on to see varsity action next year. Coach Godwin, in his first year at Garinger, has contributed much to this year ' s J. V. accomplishments. The Wildkittens, plagued through much of the season by fumbles, were not a championship team; however, in several games they performed well against tough opponents. They gave the Gas- tonia J. V. ' s the best battle of any Garinger team to date. They won over Harding in a thrilling last- second drive, with John Sanger catching two straight and then scoring. They played well in the game with North, only to lose to a very strong team. Linemen Rodney Beamer, David Tucker, Steve Reese, James Woody, Dan Andrews, and Butch Cochran are outstanding pospects for next year ' s varsity. Backs Ronnie Hamorsky, Alan Braswell, John Nash, Terry Whit, Don Allison, and Bob Irby have also demonstrated real ability.

Page One Hundred Fifty-two The 1962-63 Wildcat Cagers placed third in the Western 4- A Conference tournament and thereby earned a trip to the state tournament in Greensboro. This was a great achievement for Coach Hank Madden, as this was the first Central or Garinger basketball team ever to play in a state tournament. In the first round they lost a hard-fought game to Burlington of the Central Con- ference. Of the three returning lettermen— Sammy Todd, Ralph Porter, and Gerald Craig— only Todd and Porter were regular starters last year. Four new men— Jimmy Richards, Van Kelly, Mike Culp, and Robbie Snipes— are expected to be the backbone of next year ' s club. Hank Madden, coach BOYS ' BASKETBALL 1962-63 Gerald Craig Ralph Porter Mike Culp Jimmy Richards Mike Jarrell Robbie Snipes Van Kelly Sammy Todd Headed by Co-captains Ralph Porter and Sammy Todd, they brought home 9 conference victories in reg- ular-season play for a 9-7 record and a tie for fourth place. Their over-all record, including tournament play, was 1 1-12. Ralph Porter and Jimmy Richards carried most of the scoring load. Gerald Craig and Sammy Todd, though they were not high in scoring, were strong on rebounding and defense. For excitement, the highlight of the regular season was the second game against East, which Garinger won 69-67 on a field goal by Mike Jarrell in the last second. Ralph Porter was named on both the all-county high school basketball team and the Western 4-A all-confer- ence team. Ralph Porter, Sammy Todd, co-captains Richards shows his fine style as he puts the ball up for two.

The squad had the speed, skill, and endurance resulting from daily hour-and-a-half workouts during a period of six weeks. Among the very capable returning trackmen, Steve Bradley, who runs the 400, 220, and 100, was a brilliant prospect for 1963 honors; and half-miler Don Crowder was also outstanding. Terry Gibbons, who runs the mile, a nd Bill Lewis, 100-yard dash, were able veterans of last year ' s squad, as were Chuck Adams, discus; Steve Caldwell, shot put; and Sammy Todd and Jimmy Richards, high jumpers. Richards also runs the 100 and 220. Especially promising among new members of the squad were Richard James, a half-miler, and Don Johnson, pole vaulter. As the yearbook went to press, the Wildcat trackmen were still looking forward to most of the events of what promised to be a great season: the Duke Durham Relays, the Queen City Re- lays, the District Meet, and, on May 24, the State Meet. Buster Ledford, coach Terry Gibbons, captain Irving Edelman, coach Terry Gibbons, captain Gibbons, Garinger ' s miler, works hard to improve his endurance and speed.

In meets involving an average distance of 2.25 miles, Garinger opened its season with three victories over Charlotte and Mecklenburg foes. The Wildcats finished 5th in the Wake Forest College Invitational Meet, 4th in the Davidson College Invitational Meet, 4th in the Western 4A Meet, and 9th in the State Championship at Chapel Hill.

Though wrestling was established as a varsity sport only last year, the 1963 matmen have scored five team victories and one draw against nine losses. A number of individual winners have made im- pressive records: Jimmy Robinson in the 127 pound class had eight wins, two losses, and one draw; Jimmy McMillan, 112 pounds, won nine, lost three, and had two draws; and Trey Belk, 95 pounds, won nine and lost three. In the Sectional Tournament, Howard Thacks- ton placed fourth in the 180 pound class; and Bill Smith, who placed third in the 103 pound class, qualified for the State Finals.

Newcomers, sophomore Johnny Roberts and senior Bill Kelly, added much strength to the team.

The fact that twenty boys tried out for the eight places on the team was evidence of the increased enthusiasm which brightened Garinger ' s hopes for a winning team. The return of three 1962 lettermen— Don White, Jesse Register, and Jimmy Long— provided a strong nucleus for this year ' s team. Garinger ' s chances were strengthened by the skill of several of the new players; Don Hagler, especially, looked very prom- ising in pre-season practice. As the yearbook went to press, the Wildcats were facing a tough schedule involving encounters with most of the schools in the Western 4-A Conference.

High school is an opportunity to develop the sense of values that enables one to recognize, respect, and appreciate true worth in his associates. It provides the occasion to honor certain outstanding individuals who by effort, coupled with desirable qualities of character and superior intellectual ability, have been able to achieve far beyond the average. It is the opportunity to recognize others who possess such outstanding native gifts as strength, beauty, talent, and personal charm. NATIONAL Bill Spivey president Carson McKnight vice-president Linda Cox secretary Dale Greighton public relations Mitchell Nicholaides treasurer (absent) The Garinger Chapter of the National Honor Society gives recognition to juniors and seniors who have achieved superior scholarship and have also demonstrated outstanding qualities of leadership, character, and service. To be considered for mem- bership, a student must have earned at least a B average for three semesters; and to remain in the society, a member must maintain his high scholastic average.

High school is the reflection of a community for the education of whose sons and daughters the school exists ; of a community whose future economic, civic, social, and spiritual life will be enriched by the contributions these young people will be better able to make as a result of their high school experience. It reflects a community which, recognizing the important role education plays in its progress, supports the school. It reflects the interest of many individuals — the business people who encourage student endeavors by choosing school publications as a medium of advertising.
