INCE the days of the prophets of old,
no man has been endowed with the power
and wisdom to look into the future and
point out the destinies of men. But even though
the most gifted of us cannot tell what the future
will bring, there is not one among us who can-
not recall what has happened in the past.',
As the close of our high school education
draws nigh, it is both appropriate and custom-
ary for your humble historian. in the role of
remembrancer, to dwell for the length of a
brief summary on the happenings of our past
four years at Gastonia High School and per-
haps stimulate, where necessary, recollections
of events that played important parts in that
episode of our quest for knowledge.
Early in September of 1929 a group of three
hundred and one graduates of the elementary
grades thronged into the building which was
destined to serve us so aptly that its imposing
structure has grown to represent our ideals and
aims of higher education. At first the maze
of rooms, changing of classes, confusion of
bells and buzzers, and the natural solemn won-
der at the complications of our new school life
gave ample opportunity for us to show our
rmateurishness. However, a sympathetic fac-
ulty and considerate monitors stepped in to
guide us into compliance with the regulations
and customs: therefore we soon became ac-
climated and settled down to a harmonious
existence under the advisorship of Mrs. Wray
and Fred Allen, our first president. NVe also
found a genuine friend in our new principal,
Mr. Frank L. Ashley.
As Sophomores we entered with a broader
and more thorough understanding of our
school and the work before us, but with the
inevitable loss of seventy-nine of our members.
For the first time we began to feel the re-
sults of reductions in expenses-reductions due
to the economic conditions in the business
world outside. Our group singings, annual
Stunt Night, and May Day Festival were
among the activities abandoned. To somewhat
offset these losses, we gained an excellent ath-
letic instructor in the person of Mr. Jan Jan-
koski, whose fine leadership was to be proved
by the records of the teams which he placed on
the fields of interscholastic competition.
Our Junior year was again marked by the
effects of depression. The school board deemed
it necessary to curtail the music departments,
and we regretted to see the jovial Prof. Ed-
win Steckel depart. At the beginning of the
year fifty-live classmates failed to return to
continue with us the difficult but compensating
struggle for knowledge. llowever. 1931 proved
to be a boom year in athletics. tint of a total
of thirty-nine games contested in football,
boys' basketball, and baseball, thirty-two were
Won, one tied, and only six lost. Our class
was represented well on these teams, and the
members proved their inettle.
Athletics have not by any means claimed the
entire attention of the class: in every phase
of extra-curricular activity places have been
taken willingly and ably.
ln September, 1932, one hundred and thirty-
three students, the hardiest of the three hun-
dred who entered in 1929, enrolled for their
Senior year-as candidates for graduation and
for those long-sought-for diplomas. Miss Sara
Minis was selected to he the class sponsor.
At our first class meeting Yates Mason was
elected president, and Grady Pearson secretary
Members of the Class of 1933. We may aptly
call ourselves "The Depression Class," because
as the business world has struggled for exist-
ence these past four years, so has our class
worked to hold up the highest ideals and to
reap the greatest benefits from a program
of retrenchment. Naturally our four years of
class history lack the color and liappv events
of former years. Hut as business has gone
down to the grim realities in order to emerge
upon more stfble principles, so have we profited
by our experiences. Real character develops
from adverse circumstances. The Class of 1933
has realized its ambition to rise in spite of ob-
stacles. Our success as Seniors should mean
more to each individual than the same degree
of success would have meant in more prosper-
A look at the four years which have just
passed brings a sigh of relief at being freed
from the responsibility of having to go
through them again. followed closely by a
sigh of regret at leaving our Alma Mater with
its associations, its memories, its friendships,
its trials, its rewards, its moments of sadness.
its hours of happiness: and we almost wish we
were starting again. As we retlect further, we
find that the same kind of determination and
pluck which carried us through these years
will make us just as ready to confront the
problems of the life upon which we are now
entering and to seek out for ourselves that
"Prosperity--just around the corner."

T was a balmy day in autumn in the year
of our Lord 1945, when I boarded the New
Zealand-New York Rocket Transport,
which was to take me to my home in New
Zealand. .Xfter a few minutes there was a
muffled roar as the rocket ship left the ground
and sought the high-speed traffic lanes, which
are eight miles up. In a fraction of a minute
we were well above the seething mass of local
airplane traliic, and we were on our way. The
robot machine, which was placed where the
pilot's seat was in aviation's early days. back
in 1933, throttled the ship down to its cruising

I settled back into my seat and switched on
the television set in front of me. .Xs l casually
looked over the passengers, suddenly my eyes
widened with amazement and delight. Whom
did I see but my former senior English teacher
-Miss Illims. I rushed over to her seat and
then, needless to say, ensued many surprised
utterances of welcome and reunion.

fairly shouted. "I have completely lost track

Suddenly our conversation was hrought to an
end. There was a marked decrease in the
speed of the ship. Evidently we were nearing
our one and only stop, Rio de Janerio, the city
of heanty. We had an hour's stop-over here.
and so we decided to take a taxi and see the
city. As we step into the carfhehold, what do
we see? Here is a girl in full native regalia,
and she is none other than Anne Dorcas XVhite.
As the young lady poses willingly hefore our
camera, we see that she is wearing artilicial
eyelashes. which are toilsomely stuck on one

American race! But, ah, the lady's etforts are
heing rewarded, and now a local swain is seen

his admiration hy raising his eyehrows and

JAN JANKOSKI ROBERT STAPIFTON
N all strong leadership there must be prominent and outstand-
ing personal characteristics. Gastonia High School is exceed-
ingly fortunate in having coaches with traits of character and
leadership that are very sharp and pointed. In Mr. John E.
Jankoski. who coaches football, basketball. and baseball. and who
has labored incessantly in season and out of season. there is the
aggressive, inspirational, and dynamic personality that puts pep
and determination into the pupils whom he coaches. In Mr. R.
I.. Stapleton, who gets and puts a thrill into coaching the girls'
basketball team, there is that quiet, unassuming, sincere loyalty to
a cause that begets co-operation and unity of effort which are so
essential to any smooth athletic team. Gastonia High School,
therefore. considers itself fortunate in having Mr. .lankoski and
Mr. Stapleton as coaches for our boys and girls. The characteris-
tics of these coaches blend happily into a combination which pro-
duces the finest traits of clean sportsmanship.

HB team. which is the best halanced one we have had in several years, played
well throughout the season and played hrilliantly in several games. For the
first time Charlotte was defeated, not once, hut twice, the last game at Charlotte
heing a win of 26-12. Four games were lost-two to Shelhy and one each to Stanley
and Belmont, all hy narrow margins.
The team lost to Belmont hy one point in the County Tourney Finals, but should
have won, as many easy shots were missed.
Prospects for next year are not so hright, as the entire first team graduates. Cap-
tain Margaret Smith, Hazel Smith, Mary Lee Millen, Myrtle Craig, Catherine
Heep, and Alice Moore all are experienced players whose loss will be keenly felt.
