They bud, become blooms, begin to fade and finally drift away. All too often the fond- est memories have a way of fading and giving way to the events of the present. lt was to record a favorite joke, to recall a favorite friend, a classic football game, or an old sweetheart, that yearbooks were created. Our efforts will be rewarded, if sometime in the future, you open your annual and feel a little pang of joy or sadness while following the pages of the record of 1959-1960 - your album of memories.

HSS 75051 The nineteen-sixty senior class Has really reached its goal at last. Though faces, yes, we leave behind, They always will be in our mind. Four years of work, sometimes of play Have led us to this happy day. We've had our joys and troubles toog Sometimes wore smiles, again were blue We may seem happy, though we're not, To go forgetting - as others forgot. We'll ne'er forget the help by all Were problems large or were they small. Though now we go our separate ways, We'll e'er recall those carefree days. We dislike leaving, as you may know, But the world turns round and on we go. We thank you teachers one and all You rescued us about to fall. Behind us now the school doors close What lies before, God only knows. Another word! It is our rule To greet each one at Gaston School, Before our turn to hear our knell, With a sincere and fond farewell.

They moved to the Ragland 30 with a 21-yard sprint by Jackson the big effort. Here Gaston fumbled and Rag- land recovered. However, on the Devils' first scrimmage play they fumbled and center Billy Alford recovered. End Wayne Cash ran from the 26 to the 16 on an end-around. Stokes carried to the five Jackson to the four, and Stokes scored. Davis ran the point. Gaston went out at halftime nursing a 7-0 lead. Alford blocked a punt and end Larry Guffey recovered on the Ragland 24 to set up Gas- ton's second touchdown in the third quarter. Davis went to the 20 and Jackson to the 15. David got seven in two tries and Jackson added seven more to place the ball on the one. Stokes sneaked in from there. Stokes' running attempt for the PAT failed and it was 13-0. Stokes and Cash combined on a 34-yard pass play in the third period to set up the final touchdown. The pass put the ball on the Ragland six. Jackson went over from there. Stokes' passing attempt for the point-after was no good. The entire Gaston line showed well with Cash and tackle Mack Davis making a large share of the tackles. A capacity crowd filled Gaston 's tiny stadium to watch the home team win. SEASON'S SUMMARY This scholastic year 1959-1960 is the second since our recent resuming of football at Gaston High. In the previous year we finished the season with one win, over Appala- chian, and eight losses. We closed this year with four wins, five losses and one tie. We did not have a single quitter. Mack Davis and Kenneth Jackson were co-captains. The coaching staff consisted of John McCabe, Bill Boyd and Ted Wallace considered the season a success and were proud of our boys and of football in general on our campus. Much was added in the way of new equipment. Under the supervision of the Athletic Club a dressing room and a well lighted field were constructed. Many thanks go to this club and to the many workmen who brought about the realization of this happy dream. At the close of the season, the Athletic Club entertained the squad with a lovely banquet. Probate Judge Wiley Hickman was the guest speaker. The club presented to Mack Davis the outstanding lineman trophy and to Jerry Davis the back trophy. These awards are based on playing ability, scholastic record, sportsmanship and general con- duct. Our school played six "B" games, winning three over the "B" teams of Gadsden, Emma Sansom and Altoona. These younger boys did a commendable job. Our heartfelt thanks go out to those of our community who gave such loyal support. All-in-all we feel thatwe had a successful season and we are looking forward to greater achievement on the gridiron in the future.
