Love of alma mater in times like these cannot be entire- ly separate from love of country. In being good and devoted citizens of George Washington High School, we hope to be well on the way toward becoming good citizens of our nation. ★ I SCHOOL Geor G Washington Hi h School G. L. H.

This group sponsors all Red Cross and war fund drives, the sale of stamps and bonds, the collection of scrap metal, fur and rubber, and appoints all monitors. Assembly programs and posters are a part of their work. An honor roll of the George Washington graduates who have entered the armed forces within the last three years has been placed in our hall by the Victory Corps.

A banquet was given m the early fall for the new members, and several parties have been given during the year. In February, a program was launched for teaching any of the pre-induction boys in school who could not swim the basic principles of swimming. Two prominent members of the Hi-Y Club were called to the Army Air Corps in February. They are: Landon Wyatt, former vice-president, and Ed Carson. MEMBERS Anderson, A. B.

Some were chosen for outstanding ability in athletics, some for high scholastic achieve- ments and some for high distinction in the military. Rotary deems it important to have these “younger citizens” meet with them as regular members for ‘one month to join into the fellowship of the club and to learn more about services Rotary renders to the community.

In the spring of 1927 the Roscoe B. Ellard chapter was formed, with the following charter members of The Chatterbox staff: Leonard Fitzgerald, Jesse Elliott, Bryan Tate, Virgie Richardson, and Betsy Ogg. Mrs. Nora Payne Hill was faculty sponsor. Once or twice each year initiations into the Society are held for those who meet the following requirements: (1 ) They must be of at least junior standing. (2) They must be in the upper third of their class in general scholastic standing at the time of their election. (3) They must have done superior work in some phase of journalistic or creative endeavors. (4) They must be recommended by the supervisor or by the committee governing publica- tions. At the conclusion of the current session members of The Cavalier staff who can meet these requirements and several other members of The Chatterbox staff will be recom- mended for admission to Quill and Scroll. The students in the above picture compose the present membership of the Society. They are: (Seated) Marie Huggins, Reba Smith, Norvell Millner, Amy Lee Hatcher. (Stand- ing) Glenn Updike, Mary Davis Stembridge, Betsy Robertson, Jane Sanford, and George Anderson.

The Library ATHLETICS Georie Washington High School Coaches Woodall and Haynie FOOTBALL George Washington’s 1944 football team, with Coaches Vaughan Woodall and Russell Haynie at the helm, compiled a .7(X) percentage during the 44 season. Coach Gerry Quirk, who was head football coach at G. W. from 1935 through the 42 season was called to active duty in the U. S. Naval Reserve in the summer of 1943, as was his assistant for several years, " Vic " Bradford. The Redbirds bowed in their first three encounters, losing to Reidsville, 19-6, in the schedule opener, to Winston-Salem, 20-0, and in their first tilt on home soil, to Reidsville again, 7-0. In these games the Cards were hampered by lack of practice, and ran into some bad breaks. 1 GEORGE WASHINGTON 1943 GRIDIRON WARRIORS Front row (left to right) — Manager Hall, Slaughter, Fowlkes, Graves, Williamson, Crawley, Mills, Moore, Hatcher, Goggin, econd row — Assistant Manager Keck, Reynolds, Holcombe, McFarling, Gosney, Westbrook, Captain Powell, Flora, Wells, vllred, Jordan, Walker.

Martin, Bridges, Bradner, Coach Haynie Walter Bridges Charles Flora John Reynolds Dicky Walker Lindy Wells James Allred Numa Bradner Herman Gosney Kenneth Powell Ernest Westbrook Harold Holcomb Walter Jordan Harry McFarling However, once the Cardinals hit the victory trail, they stayed on it. In a tangle with the light Oxfor d Orphanage team, in Oxford, the Cards smashed the Tarheels, 34-0. Then G. W. met Burlington, and again came out on top, 19-0, in a game played on a dusty field. This was followed by another one-sided victory as the Cards vanquished Schoolfield High’s Green Dragons, 28-0, with the G. W. reserves seeing much action. On November 6, G. W. met Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, and smoth- ered the Cadets, 34-18. The Cadets were not able to gain through the line at all and their scores came on passes. In the 1944 Homecoming Day tussle the Redbirds met and crushed Oxford again 20-0. Then, in the highlight game of the year, the Cards met the Jefferson Senior high school Magicians in Roa- noke. In a hard game, the Cardinals, though decided underdogs, walloped the Magicians, 19-7. Dick Walker, before being injured, tallied the first Danville touchdown, bulling his way through the Roanoke line and dashing 56 yards to score standing up. The season’s finale was the annual Thanksgiving Day battle with Har- grave. Again the Card line smeared the Cadets’ running attack, and the Cards came out on top, 26-0. Dick Walker, the Cards’ veteran quarterback, was the mainstay of the Redbirds during the season. Although slowed by injuries throughout the schedule, he managed to lead the Card scoring with 42 points. Walker was also chosen the team’s Most Valuable Player, by vote of his teammates. Charlie Flora, lanky end, was second in the scoring with 33 points, and Numa Bradner and Har- old Holcombe followed with 25 and 24 tallies, respectively. In the 1944 All State Class A selections. Walker landed a second team backfield position, and Flora and Captain Kenneth Powell received honorable mention. Powell’s activities during the season were curtailed by an operation he underwent in the summer. 7!» The Nineteen Forty- four Cavalier George Washington High School BASKETBALL On hand for George Washington’s ’ 43-’44 basketball schedule were six returning lettermen, headed by Captain Kenneth Powell. The others were Charlie Flora, Bill Caldwell, Nig Gosney, Billy McCub- bins, and Jack Newton. The Cards opened the season with a double-header in Burlington, winning both games, 39-1 1, and 48-21. From then on the Redbirds dropped only seven games, two of them being to non-conference op- ponents. In the first conference clash the Cards were eked out by the Lynchburg Hilltoppers, 28-27. However, in a return engagement played in Lynchburg, the Redbirds topped the Hilltoppers, 47-40, in a knock-down, drag-out game which was saved by some smooth floor leadership by Nig Gosney in the closing minutes of the tilt. On January 18, the Cards met Salem in the G. W. gym and squeezed out a victory over the Salem- ites, 30-29. Two weeks later Salem revenged their earlier defeat, walloping the Cardinals, 36-26. That same week-end the Redbirds tackled Roanoke in the second game of their double bill trip and bowed, 44-36. In the last two conference tilts, the Cards journeyed to Richmond and tackled John Marshall and Thomas Jefferson on successive nights. The Justices came out on top in the first game, 45-40, and the Tee- jays triumphed also, 52-42. In between these conference games the Cards bowed to Greensboro twice, smothered Burlington in four encounters, tripped Reidsville twice, Hargrave twice, and won over Schoolfield in two tussels also. The Cards made their top scoring effort in the final Burlington game, tallying 76 points to the Tarheels’ 23. The curtain was rung down on the season in a contest with an Alumni team made up of ex-G. W. stars, all of whom were in the armed services. The Redbirds pulled an upset and humbled the older, more experienced team, 40-34. During the season the Redbirds piled up a total of 864 points to their opponents’ 582. Captain Powell led the scorers with 329 tallies for an average of 15p2 points per game. He was also selected center and captain of the All Western District team. BOYS’ BASKETBALL Boliom ; Top row: Gerald Holcombe, John Reynolds, Dick Walker, Harry Graves Billy McCubbins, Manager; Charles Flora, Kenneth Powell, Captain; Herman Gosney, Billy Caldwell GIRLS BASKETBALL SEASON The Ladybirds opened the season by bowing to Woodrow Wil- son Jr. High School with a score of 1 5 to 1 I . A comeback on this team was made on the 21st of January when the Ladybirds won with a score of 32 to 1 9. A second defeat was made to Reidsville on the Reidsville floor with the G. W.-ites short of 6 points. Draper High School lost to the Ladybirds on the 1st of Feb- ruary with a close score of 3 I to 28. South Boston added to the victories by losing with a score of 3 1 to 25. Another victory was chalked when Schoolfield bowed to G. W. by a margin of 1 9 points. They lost their return game to the Lady- birds with the score ending at 22 to 12. South Boston lost their return engagement and returned home with a score of 1 7 to the Ladybirds’ 26. Reidsville players won over the local players in their return game but the South Boston team bowed to G. W. with a score of 3 1 to 25.

That was us. Remember how Mr. Greene called out a list of names, then said, “All those report to homeroom A — ”? And how we sat in suspense, holding our breath, hoping we’d be sent to the same room as our best pal? After we were settled in our homerooms, we got unsettled in the halls — trying to find our classes. We, as other seventh graders have done year after year, ran through, into, and over the senior highs. Just as the tardy bell rang, we dashed into ou r classes — only to find we were in the wrong room! Incidentally, have you noticed that it seems to be an unwritten law for the seniors to exclaim, “I’ve never seen such tiny little seventh graders!” They must have really meant it back in ’38 because now when the seventh graders look at Dorothy Alverson and Pauline Gentry, they say, “I’ve never seen such tiny little seniors!” We may have been small but we organized ourselves so we could do big things. We elected Ed Smith, president; Dick Stigall, vice-president; Carl DuBose, secretary; and Allan Garrett, treasurer. Jules Kauf- man must have been outstanding, too, because he was selected to serve on the Judiciary Board. By this time we had formed definite opinions of G. W. Reading a Chatterbox of 1938, we found that Buddy Sager said, “It’s fun because you don’t have to walk in line.” It must have been a rainy day when Jules Kaufman decided that — quote — Walking from the main building to the annexes sure is a mess! unquote. Dons Davis, evidentally pleased with the school — and herself — stated: “It’s swell and you don’t seem to stay long at all ... I made applesauce in home economics, today.” Reflecting more deeply, Carl DuBose declared, “You have to try, but it’s fun. You can be yourself and you are on your own, which gives you a chance to advance.” Speaking for all of us, wasn’t it wonderful to be in noisy halls and to be free from walking in line? Cooking, sewing, woodshop, and metal shop — we had never taken classes like those before! Then joining clubs — all these things impressed us at first. Now, we take them as a matter of “course,” and that’s what they mere all the time! Since we made history right from the beginning there just couldn’t have been anything shy or back- ward about our class. We had plenty of talent and made no bones about it. Mr. Myers’ homeroom, 202, was the first of our class to give an assembly program and it was presented m Major Bowes fashion. Anne Martin, as always, was on her toes — this time in an original ballet number. Anna Barrick sang “El Manton de Manilla.” Yes, there were pianists — Mary Ellen Browder, and Norvell Millner. Nancy Evans, of course, gave a reading, and Barbara Warren did, too. Starring in a playlet were Mary Ann Yarborough, Lena Scott Turner and Vera Eudy. Frances Benton, with pigtails and blackened skin, sang “Chewing Gum. ” Domestic, as well as artistic, records show that Barbara Warren, Nancy Evans, Anne Martin, Mary Davis Stembridge, and Temple Walters were commended for their neat patching and darning. Grace Kappes, Amy Lee Hatcher, Frances Jones, Doris Davis, Irene Pinnix, Anne Motley, Betsy Robertson, and Doris Wyatt were among the first to prepare breakfasts in cooking class. Could it be they heard the proverb, “The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”? In the “Busy Bee Club” Anne Martin, Nancy Evans, and Mary Davis Stembridge were officers. Amy Lee Hatcher was vice-president of the “Make a Scrapbook” club. The Junior Highlight-ers from our class were Jules Kaufman, Alice Andrews, and Allan Garrett. Ed Carson, Betty Brogdon, Anne C. Hagan, Pauline Gentry, and Jack Hawkins probably remember M iss Robins’ homeroom assembly program quite well. They portrayed a typical “little red school house” scene. 82 When studying Jean Valjean, A. B. Anderson played the part of Jean; Allan Garrett, the minister. The class invited guests to see their master production. Other players were none other than Barbara Warren, Norvell Millner, Ed Carson, Bill Barker, and John Murray. A comedy you should remember well is “His Just Deserts” sponsored by Miss Oliver’s homeroom, 307. La Rue Wilmarth, wearing slacks, played the part of Kit, while Bill Barker, as Oscar, industriously (imagine it!) made ice-cream in an “ole timey” freezer. No wonder Bill continuously tasted the stuff — it was in reality marshmallow whip. Our first and only class poet was Reba Smith. In a state contest she won first honor for her poem “The Church Bells.” “We are the bells Oft’ heard but seldom seen. And all the services that e’er have been Held ’neath our shadow Lingers in our voices. The marriage tie when all the world rejoices; And every christening and call to prayer ; Seek in our song, And ye will find them there.” Before launching into our eighth grade activities we want to remember that two of our senior sponsors came to G. W. the same year we did. Miss Robins and Miss Mears. They are graduated, too — from Misses to Mrs. -cries Link and Travis. Do you realize that since we’ve been over here, at least eight teachers have thrilled to wedding bells. Just give us a beau and call us Kupid s Klux Klan. One year gone, another begun. Of the new teachers who came to G. W. when we advanced to the eighth grade, Mr. Hood, Miss Woodson, and Miss Webb have stayed with us. It was in this year that they clamped down on our deportment — we were graded according to our lowest mark. After that we couldn’t get by with telling our parents that the 2’s and 3’s written beside the subject merely meant that we were taking English 2 or Math 3. Chosen for Junior Hi-lighters our second year, were Amy Lee Hatcher and Anne Martin. In an assembly program two more talented pianists were revealed — the soloists, Georgia Phifer and Aurelia Benton. “Gone With the Wind” dropped to the background when Reba Smith wrote the skit “Come With the Breeze.” Anne Fitzgerald was Scarlett, Jane Terry, Rhett, Mildred Hodnett, Ashley, and Mane Huggins, Prissy. The recollection of the playlet “Allan Garrett’s Jalopy on a Sight-seeing Trip” makes us pause to sigh over the days when G. W.’s alley was conjested with such adored contraptions. Just before school closed for the summer, we had our first Flag Raising ceremony which was quite effective. At the end of the school year, Nancy Evans and Glenn Updike crowned our eighth-grade glories by winning the American Legion Awards. Our Freshman year left no record of an election for class officers. In fact there is hardly any record of our ninth grade activities — oh, well, lots of marvelous events that were “strictly off the record” took place in that year. On six weeks tests Anne Motley, Marie Huggins, Charles Fralin, Robert Goodman, Anne Carter Hagan, Jules Kaufman, Ted Myers, Aurelia Benton, Nancy Evans, and Jack Hawkins had perfect math papers. (What does that prove? someone asked. Hmmm — ). Barbara Warren made 100 on her com- mercial test while Jenifer Harrison and Reba Smith made 99 on Latin. It was this year Doris Davis and Frances Jones became assistants to the business manager of the Chat- terbox. The C. A. R. was organized with Grace Norris, president, and Reba Smith, treasurer. The Book Club was also begun with Daisy Robertson as vice-president. Doris Davis won the Boyer Dancing School scholarship in the spring, and that concludes our knowl- edge of what we did as Freshmen. 83 The Nineteen Forty- four Cavalier George Washington High School In the tenth grade someone must have started an underground, because along with Mavis Haywood, Barbara Bernard, Leah Hagar, Virginia Case, Marjorie Johnson, and other Woodrow Wilsonians, T. G. Harper, Sam Patterson, and Gert Link (The Terrible Three) managed to slip into G. W. This was too much for Mr. Green — he left and Mr. Christopher bravely took over. When Allan Garrett began writing the Swing Column, a two year war began. Garrett vs. Harry James vs. public, in general, and Ellen Dyer in particular. About this time Gerald Lee Quirk, Jr., had reached the ripe old age of two. Completely prepared to enter the clash in case of an emergency, Gerald Lee began attending every football game. In a patriotic parade George Washington’s float, representing freedom of religion, speech, and press, won first place. Three girls from our sophomore class rode on it. Anne Martin, Grace Kappes, and Betsy Robertson. They must have been the living examples of the freedom of speech. In the scholastic field, Anne Motley and Eugenia Payne wrote in Elliot’s style commendable descrip- tions of Danville. Mary Ellen Browder, Geneva Payne, and Barbara Warren were doing exceedingly well m bookkeeping. In the same subject Anna Barrick and Gloria Gentry were recognized for doing good work. The boys were making progress, too. Bill Barker completed a telephone table (no doubt he needed it) and Ralph Motley finished his cedar chest. A tilt-top table was made by Royal Brown, and Charles Gillie drove the last nail into his Colonial bench. Here are some of the Tenth Grade Intelligentsia who made A on math six weeks tests: Allan Gar- rett, Tommy Pullen, Bud Sager, Ed Carson, Aurelia Benton, Barbara Bernard, and Anne Martin. Jules Kaufman handed in a perfect paper! Those who have taken typing can appreciate the fact that Georgie Phifer, Barbara Warren and Vir- ginia Case were the first in their class to reach I 5 words a minute. Serving on the Judiciary were Doris Davis and Allan Garrett. When the Debating Club was formed, Virginia Case made herself an indispensable member. Doris Lee Warren was elected president of the Etiquette Club, and while we’re on the subject of elections, Barbara Bernard was voted to be secretary and treasurer of the Student Council. Purchasing war stamps with funds from a homeroom pool, was the job undertaken by Miss Oliver’s charges in 307. Later these were exchanged for bonds. We’ll all remember High-School Day at Herman’s. Anna Barrick particularly remembers it because she was credit manager. We have also found it difficult to forget that “Rubinoff came and Rubinoff Went — Rubinoff.” The end of our fourth year was marked by a State Latin tournament. Reba Smith won third place w hile Anne Carter Hagan made fifth place. Along with our Junior year came Mr. Ellis, the military corps, blue absentee books, and the Victory Corps. Our class officers were Allan Garrett, Doris Davis, and Mary Davis Stembndge. Mrs. Link, Mrs. Travis, Miss Mary Oliver, Miss Eitzgerald, Mr. Ellis, and Miss Reynolds shouldered the responsibility of being our Junior sponsors. Anne Martin served on the Judiciary Board. An outstanding assembly program in the eleventh grade was based on scenes from Shakespearian plays. Doris Davis portrayed Portia, Jules Kaufman took the part of the Great Bard, Ellen Dyer played “Out damned spot!” (Lady Macbeth), and Ed Carson was the doctor. When the Glee Club elections were held, Erances Benton was chosen vice-president, and Anna Bar- rick, secretary and treasurer. With all its honors, this organization has decked our school with laurels we shall be proud to mention in years to come. Drafting the boy s into service, drafting the teachers into issuing ration coupons, and in turn the teachers drafting some pupils to help, began definite changes. Things like these didn’t bother us too much, because short holidays from school sometimes resulted — ah, what picnics! Another of our war activities was sending to our men in uniform subscriptions for “The Reader’s Digest.” For that we drafted money from everybody. 84 Reba’s fame for poetry reached one of its peaks when Ted Malone read her verse “The Bend of the Brook” over his program, “Between the Bookends.” Eugenia Payne also won renown when her pastel paintings were shown in a local art exhibit. What was all that screaming about when we began a six period schedule? The complacent females of our class, yanked from their leisurely schedule into one including compulsory gym, were losing their minds trying to take showers without getting straight hair. But that was foolish because then they began pulling their hair out trying to think of ways to elude the dreaded class altogether. Campaigns were our specialty. Our class led the school m Red Cross contributions with $443.87. Homeroom 302 went the farthest over their goal and homeroom 307 was the runner-up. When we had that jeep campaign, we could hardly keep count of all the purchases we made. After another hilarious High School Day at Herman’s, some Juniors began picking up and making news. Betsy Robertson headed her typing class in speed; Jeanette Payne, Helen Tate, and Nell Gauldin made high scores in those coordination tests we took in gym; and Barbara Bernard was runner-up m the Easter Bunny Girl election. The obstacle course will, no doubt, never be forgotten. Neither will our first dance. We were the sponsors! Didn’t that sound important? With Ellen Dyer as Dance Chairman, natcherly everything went over with a “bang,” and $18.75 profit. There were other things that built up our ego. One of these is always a first sign of spring — and that’s the arrival of our school rings. Then there was the honor assembly that gave public recognition to those who did most outstanding work in diffierent fields of activities . . . for Service, Science, Military, Sports, Languages, Math, Journal- ism, and others. Those of our class who were selected as charter members of the Honor Society are Nancy Evans, Glenn Updike, Barbara Warren, Barbara Bernard, A. B. Anderson, Reba Smith, and Alice Andrews. Weren’t we proud of ourselves the day we learned to count to four? Remember? We were trying to keep time with the music when the Seniors gave us their seats. That same day we entertained them on the front campus of our dear Alma Mater. To respect the intelligence of all, we played educational games — “A Tisket, a Tasket,” “The Earmer’s in the Dell,” and “Tag.” Politics play a large part in the history of almost all great things, so, after strenous campaigning, we held our elections. Por our Senior officers we chose Glenn Updike, president, Anne Martin, vice-president, and Doris Davis, secretary and treasurer. Barbara Bernard was elected president of the Student Council, Buddy Sager, vice-president, and Alice Andrews, secretary and treasurer. Eor most of us, our last high school summer flew by on the wings of work. Then, once again George Washington’s doors opened to welcome the class of ’44 — Seniors! Doris Davis, alias Lee Davis, brought a touch of New York to Danville — we were awed by a model in our midst. All of our high school days haven’t been a bed of thornless roses. The very beginning of our last year is marked with a tragedy. Any member of the famous homeroom 302 will tell you that. Under the guid- ance of Miss Fitzgerald, that homeroom itself one of the best (they’d say the best) in G. W. and then — last fall its members were scattered at random among the other senior homerooms. Perhaps it helped their martyr complex because, after all, if they had realized what a genius she is as manager of assembly programs, the Victory Corps, and almost anything nobody else can do, they wouldn’t have minded being jirked from their bliss. It didn t take long, though, for all of us to get back into the swing of things. Our football team has been swell — no wonder, look at our cheerleaders. Just think of that good ole season — the bonfire, the homecoming game and the homecoming dance when Frances Jones, attended by Mary Davis Stembridge and Betsy Robertson, was crowned Homecoming Queen VI. In keeping with tradition, we bought and sold stationery; also we presented a Senior play, “China Boy.” Hats off to the stars! . . . Glenn Updike, Jenifer Harrison, Frances Benton, Ellen Dyer, A. B. Anderson, T. G. Harper, Sam Patterson, Gurdme Link, and Anne Motley. Orchids to the directors! . . . Mrs. Peers 85 The Nineteen Forty-four Cavalier GeorieWashiniton High School and M rs. Travis. It was super, to say the least. And speaking of least, there are a few of us who remem- ber the Senior dance given just before Christmas. We all like mysteries. Solve this one. “Why Did We React as We Did?” Time: Christmas Eve. Place: A local department store. Characters: A G. W. news crier and students working as clerks. MUSIC, LIGHTS, CURTAINS, ACTION! The news crier dashes into the store, his eyes blazing with excitement. “Hey, y’all! Hey, — Guess what?” All the student clerks, flaming with enthusiasm, crowd around, and one person guesses. “The school burned down?” News Crier — “No — the grandstand burned down!” With that, the students squeal with apparent delight while their eyes catch the fire of surprise. The mystery still remains — why so joyful? Well, seriously, maybe it was because we were anticipat- ing a classy, streamlined grandstand. When Ted Malone’s Dixie Doodle Quiz honored our fair city, our two Quiz Kids, A. B. Anderson and Jules Kaufman, went like skyrockets to fame. Competing with college girls, Jules won first place and A. B., second, as history connoisseurs. Among the sweet sorrows of parting, the Chatterbox must bid farewell to its editors, Reba Smith and Norvell Millner, and the oodles of other Seniors on the staff. Amy Lee says not to forget to mention that she was the president of the Press Club. Congratulations are in order for Company A and its commanding officer, Landon Wyatt, because they won first place m the competitive drill at the first of the year. Our basketball teams should be mentioned, too — with emphasis. One of our victories was the jeep campaign, another, the War Bond Party. Sam says everyone was bond to come. We can’t dismiss the latter without fondly going into hysterics over the Boulderettes’ line number. Now — after a tragedy, many victories, and a mystery, we have our miracle — the greatest accomplish- ment of our Senior Class. No, Superman, we’re sorry — you’re too late. Not even you can touch Mrs. Link’s ability as annual adviser, particularly when it comes to speedy publication. What’s that? No, Anne Martin, the editor, Glenn Updike, John D. Watt, Ellen Dyer, A. B. Anderson, Betsy Robertson, and the other members of the staff won’t need your assistance . . . They’ve already accomplished the impossible, too. None of us have failed to think about the boys who would have been Seniors with us and those other Senior boys, Ed Carson, C. T. Hildreth, Carl DuBose, Landon Wyatt, and Allan Garrett who left at mid-term. And they are about tbe biggest reason for the “Miracle of the Class of ’44” — our annual, The Cavalier. Talking about being proud of things, we’re proud of A. B. Anderson for being appointed to West Point. When a detective whirls on you with “What were you doing on the night of June 9, 1944?” you certainly won’t have any trouble telling him. It’s that night when we shall march down the aisle, when each one of us shall go up on the stage and take our George Washington High School diplomas. No doubt, some shall be saucer-eyed, some confident, some indifferent. And all of us? But definitely proud! 86 THE PROPHECY Nancy Evans and Lee Davis It all started one May evening in 1 964, in La Paz, Bolivia, at one of those gay spots, commonly called night clubs. (Lunny how so many things start in such places.) This particular one, “The Silver Streak,” owned by Amy Lee Hatcher, was a gorgeous spectacle with its luminescent walls and silvery fur- niture. In the center Leah Hagar conducted an all-blonde orchestra arranged to be seen and heard from the Zephyr Bar on the left and the dining hall on the right. U. S. Ambassador Jules Kaufman, sat at a table on the far side of the chamber to our right. Prom the doorway the laughter arising from that table appeared to be by no means slight. On more closely ob- serving the party at the Ambassador’s table we saw a number of familiar faces. Next to the Ambassador sat Betty Brogdon, nationally known stenographer, who travels with the Ambassador as his private secre- tary. Ed Carson, owner of the International Television Company, was seated next to Anne Carter Hagan — what say Jo! We had heard that Anne Carter was in South America to polish up on her Spanish be- fore taking over part of Reba Smith’s Language School, but we hadn’t expected to find her pursuing the idiom in a Bolivian night club. Macon Ellis and his two partners, William Neal and Carlton Mays, owners of the U. S. Bolivian Trading Company, were also among the party. Doris Lloyd Price and her husband had just come m. This was a belated honeymoon and they were stopping in to say “Hello.” By now Nancy and I had reached the table. Carl DuBose, down to get new ideas (at last) for the DuBose Clothiers, looked up as we app roached. “Well, if it isn’t Lee Davis! Or what do you suppose her name is by now? Probably Leeova Davisa, since she is on tour with her Ballet Company.” Nancy began talking to Ed about some plans for her Evans Radio Hour. On her next program she was to feature little A. B. Anderson, the Quiz Kid, and Barbara Bernard playing the new Pianophone put out by the Benton Barrick Music Company. Incidentally, Aurelia and Anna had been working on it for years, ever since those gym-class polkas in G. W. Nancy and I took a seat and joined in the gaiety we had noticed from the doorway. It turned out to be a discussion of old classmates. (Still at it twenty years later.) Someone suggested a ’44 class reunion to be held in Danville on June 9, anniversary of our graduation. Like most ideas born of champagne cocktails, the suggestion met with enthusiastic approval. Ed immedately called John D. Watt at the home office to put it on the air. Marie Huggins, editor of the Baltimore Herald, was notified, and said she would get m touch with Anne Motley of the International News, and Norvell Millner on the Nerv Yorif Times staff. Landon Wyatt’s Buicks of the Blue Airline Com- pany and Lranklin Barber’s Transcontinental Airways were contacted to make plans for getting the alumni to Danville from all points. Preliminary plans were rapidly completed, and the party broke up in time to catch the second showing of Madam Fang Ceis The Copperhead, featuring Gurdme Link and Sam Patterson. The next day Ambassador Kaufman cabled Robert Goodman, principal of G. W. H. S., saying the class of ’44 wished to get together once more at the school in Danville. Principal Goodman wired in reply that he remembered well the class of ’44, and would welcome such a gathering. In fact we learned later that quite a number of the faculty were graduates of ’44. Prances Jarret, head of the Home Ec. Depart- ment: Edna Clark, History teacher, Thelma Perry Bailey of the English Department, Barbara Warren, di- rector of the Glee Club, and Helen Tate and Peggy Arrington, Physical Ed. teachers, were all graduates of that memorable class. In the correspondence that followed between Kaufman and Goodman, it was difficult to find a date (I know what they mean) that was not filled. This proved quite a problem, for the Junior Dance, the Press Club Dance, the Senior Dance, and the June Prom were already set, with orchestras contracted and all. With a little shuffling around, June 9 was made open for the big occasion, and Allan Garrett’s orchestra canceled another engagement in order to play for his old schoolmates. As soon as Tommy Pullen, Mayor of Danville, heard of the plan things began to buzz. A meeting of the Chamber of Commerce, which included members of the ’44 class, was called at once. President J. B. Rickman appointed Buddy Sager and Ted Myers co-chairmen of the Decoration Committee. Huge maroon and gray posters were made by Marshall at the Vernon Printing Company. Frances 87 The Nineteen Forty-four Cavalier George Washington High School Whitt, secretary to the president of the Danville Electric Company, arranged for neon signs to be placed at the city limits. The Danville Art Department, in charge of all artistic publicity, immediately went to work. Alice An- drews, Jenifer Harrison, Daisy Robertson, and Eugenia Payne started on the hand-painted place cards to be used at the gala affair. Grace Scruggs, city dietitian, assisted by Phyllis Gravely and Jean Robertson, who were also mem- bers of this class, volunteered their services in planning the food for the banquet. Charles Gillie, owner of a livestock farm outside the city, was called on for country hams. Ralph Motley and Nelson Motley do- nated all the frozen vegetables necessary from Motley Motley Frozen Foods, Inc. Charles Hildreth arranged to ship twenty-five bushels of Albermarle Pippins from his mountain orchard. Neal Goodson took the responsibility of furnishing milk and butter for the occasion. Bill Hankins and Charles Fralin, propri- etors of the Cavalier Cocktail Founge, were to furnish the cocktails before dinner. Paul Fitzgerald, noted for his prowess with the rifle, promised to provide quail on toast. Elaine Gatewood, manager of the Chesa- peake Bay Company, agreed to furnish oysters on the half-shell. Three Danville matrons, best known to their classmates as Doris Lee Warren, Virginia Haraway, and Fa Rue Wilmarth, volunteered to give the banquet a home-cooked touch with some of their domestic delicacies. Flowers for the festivity were to come from Vera Eudy’s flower shop. With her assistants, Hilda Fayne, Mildred Hodnett, Gloria Moore, and Evelyn Trexter, Vera had discovered a way to produce synthetic orchids twenty hours after planting the seeds, and was now trying to figure out how to sell them that fast. And so Danville began to make plans. Those few alumni who were still living in Danville were organized into a committee which cooperated with the faculty in planning a program. It was not difficult to obtain material, for the greatest talent of the time m practically every field would attend the festive affair as members of the class. Among the first to arrive were Nancy and I, who were to take care of last minute details. After a pleasant trip with stewardess Thelma Owen, we were greeted at the airport by Grace Norris, local social worker, and the chairman of the Alumni Committee, John D. Watt — “The name that meant everything in radios.” Our ride to the school proved most interesting as the many changes in the city were pointed out to us. One of the most spectacular was the Cavalier Cocktail Lounge, the lifeline of Hank and Cotton. In a store window we saw, “Hazel’s Roomy Coats” by Crowder. On our left was Billy Fowlke’s Auto Shop, the Flap-Jack Grill run by Hawkins and Newton, and Betty Keck’s Hat Shoppe. We passed a row of mills — the Mills’ Mills owned and operated by June Mills. (Monotonous, isn’t it?) We learned that among the models employed by this concern to advertise its finished products were Marie Hurd, Helen Nance, Earline Hancock, and Colleen Hall. The recreation building housed an acrobatic school operated by Virginia Martin and Dot Alverson, and the Athletic Club headed by Elizabeth Guthrie and Marguerite Brannon. When we asked about the new bank building on the corner, we were told that it was Marjorie Johnson’s Loan Bank. Pauline and Gloria also had their offices in the building as the Gentry Gentry Public Stenographers. The Y. W. C. A. was headed by Betty Savage, who had as her assistants Betty Allen, Elsie Clay- ton, Garland Taylor, and Sarah Powell. Wishing to receive more news about our former classmates, we made several inquiries. We found that Eugene Miller and Fletcher Stephens headed a firm of Chemical Engineers. Doris Wyatt, assisted by Temple Walters and Bobbie Warren, had made quite a name for herself in the photographic world with her natural color pictures. Mary Anne Yorborough was a buyer for a large department store. The Little Theater, operated by Annie Laurie Bennett and Virginia Case, had just closed after a very successful season. Lenora Perkins was working for the Government as an interpreter. Since everybody was familiar with Carolyn’s “Swing and Sway the Haraway” dancing academy, it was not mentioned. We were attracted by a large neon sign which read “COKES BY COCKE.” This seemed to be Jeanette Cocke’s Coka Cola plant. Stacy Tsoukatos had a lovely library near the school. Then there was the “Card- inals’ Nest,” a drug store a few doors from the school, run by Sybil Shelton and Ruth Chaney. We were also told of Katherine Flynn’s shoe store. Arriving at school, we saw a spacious parking lot, filled with gaily painted “jeeps” — the latest thing in transportation for the young G. W.-ites. Entering the building we were appalled by the brilliantly lighted halls and class rooms. On examining these class rooms we realized the brightness was partly due to the white 88 “blackboards” which were written on with black chalk, and the fact that the cushioned desks were each equipped with desk lamps. As we re-entered the corridors our attention was drawn to the maroon-carpeted escalators at each end, and the elevators in the center. We were told that these luxurious accommodations had been provided in order that the time for changing classes could be reduced from three minutes to two and seven-tenths minutes. Desiring to see the other improvements, we moved on to the Gym, an impressive building, with a modern indoor swimming pool, a drill room for military corps, squash courts, basketball courts, and an in- door tanbark track for riding enthusiasts. Outside we found the ideal of the students since that tragic fire of ’43 when the grandstand was destroyed — immense up-to-date stadium, the scene of many large state games with the Cardinals, coached by Kenneth Powell and Trotter Hyler. And yet, there was something missing — oh yes, the dog houses! What had happened to the annexes? Where they had stood there was another building which we were told was the G. W. Club — just a place in which to relax and have a good time. (The students of ’64 were fortunate. They were even provided quarters for what we used to get punished for doing in school.) Anxious to get on with the plans for the reunion, however, we asked to be directed to the dining room where it was to take place. A girl who was passing consented to guide us, as she was going that way. Until then we had seen very few students, for they seemed to be in class — except for a few, of course, who were lurking in the halls. (Human nature is about the only thing that doesn’t change in twenty years.) We had seen one girl near the new press room who we thought looked vaguely familiar and when we asked her who she was, she said “Franny.” Certainly we should have known — Franny Jones’ daughter. Yes, more like her mother than we had first thought, for as we turned away we heard a loud, “Kenny- Ho,” and the coach’s son was coming up the hall. The girl accompanying us explained why she was out of class. “This is last period, and I am taking up tardies.” As you have probably guessed, it was Mavis Haywood’s offspring, already taller than her mother and with shoes just as loose and noisy. (Wonder if she even whistles down the hall.) The beautiful oak paneled dining room was found on the fourth floor. It was an ideal place for a banquet and the preparations were about completed so there was little left to do. Someone called us, and turning around we saw Bill Barker and Betsy Robertson waving from the door. Realizing that the guests had begun to arrive, we hurried over. We asked how they liked the movies and congratulated them on winning the 1964 Academy Award. We were then greeted by Rachel Aher- ron, Lena Scott Turner, and Edna Mae York, also Hollywood stars. Nell Gauldin, basketball star, arrived behind them. From then until the night of the banquet things were just one mad rush. It seemed that the guests arrived continuously. Mary Davis Stembridge, who had won a million dollars in the Irish sweepstakes, arrived in her satin- padded Buick of the Blue, accompanied by Playboy John Murray. Then there were the twins, Jeanette and Geneva Payne, who were now famous women surgeons known as the Payne doctors, Carolyn Rink, who operated Rink’s Skating Rink, and Wilma Gibbs and Jean Long of the Gibbs Long Bookstore. Anne Martin, world known for her dress designs which she modeled herself, was also among the first to arrive. Finally the night of June 9th came and we were all seated around the tables arranged in the shape of a horseshoe. We had almost finished the delectable dinner when the lights were dimmed and spotlight shone on the Master of Ceremonies — none other than that popular radio star — Grace Kappes. Gris pre- sented those taking part on the program. Barbara Bernard played one of her own compositions. (Re- member the first one she wrote? It was the musical background to that cafeteria program in assembly, when they couldn’t make Kenneth Powell behave — even when the scene was supposed to show improvement.) Ellen Dyer presented a few scenes from the latest Broadway hits in which she had the leading role. Hildrian Suttle, recently returned from a triumphant tour of Europe, led her group of dancers in a new dance-form, the outgrowth of the old “Modern” art. Mary Ellen Browder, sang, and several graduates from her talent school gave excellent performances. One of these was Georgia Phifer, who gave a reading reminiscent of 1 944 days in G. W. The program was interrupted once by the dramatic entrance of U. S. Senator Updike with his usual crowd of photographers and reporters, and again by a cable from a few class members held in Europe on business, who had gotten together to see the program presented by television. It read: “Are listening to program — stop — Regret we cannot be present — stop — Are sending our best wishes to everyone — stop. Signed: Jane Terry, Anne Eitzgerald, Nancy Bousman, Marjorie Burns, John McElveen, and Bill White. Th IS seemed to account for everybody, and our reunion came to a perfect end as we were lead by Trances Benton in singing “Auld Lang Syne” in memory of that unforgettable graduation day back in ’44. 89 The Nineteen Forty- four Cavalier GeorieWashiniton Hiih School A WATCHWORD IV e face a world at war. Our eyes are strained T oward vistas that encompass the whole world (The regions which to our less troubled parents Were “lands of gay romance, " places for tourists. Not battlefields where our very nation s sentence Of life or death is written in men ' s blood) Where now there sweat and fight and sometimes die. Some who should now be graduating with us. We are burdened with the solution of the future. Which, if it fails, will tear down in its failure All that has made our life so fair and dear. Yet we must not thinly much of the strain and burden. For if We stop to worry, our hands may falter. And if enough hands falter, we shall lose All that We hoped to gain by this great war. We do not leave you a customary message Of fond regret, hope for success and honor. Instead We leave a watchword grimly true: T rue as the ground that grows our daily bread. If you thinly them false, it may be very soon Posterity will lose its chance to win The Wonders of f nowledge for numberless years to come. Civilizations have hung on less than you. . . . This is our watchword ; mal(e it swiftly yours: Be sure each day is filled with work done. W aste not a single hour that may hold Truth and skill and strength for you to learn. If you accept the challenge, you can save our world! — Reba M. Smith. 90 LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT We, the graduating class of ’44, being free, white and umpteen years of age, sound and sane of mind, and even somewhat serious at times, do hereby solemnly swear this document to be our Last Will and Testa- ment. (Believe it or not.) Upon looking around we saw that in this Senior Class there is such an abundance of talent, good looks, wit and general attractiveness that it seemed a shame not to bequeath some share of these desirable elements to certain desirable people. Therefore, ITEM I— First: To our tired and true homeroom teachers, we’d like to leave several tickets to Shangri-la, where you should go to enjoy yourselves this summer. Bless your hearts, you have really struggled strenuously to storm the static of stubborn seniors. It was you who gently persuaded us in our early years of G. W. residence that Washington Irving and William Shakespeare were far more educational, if not quite as hair raising, as “The Rover Boys’’ and “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.’’ You were patient in your learning, for we never did, that getting out of our way when the lunch bell rang was the safest, sanest thing to do. Yes, you prodded us on our weary way up the ladder of knowledge, remembering us in your prayers, serving tea for us when we remained after school happily writing one hundred times “I must not tie Robert Goodman’s shoe strings together.” Many times, as we grew older and became the confidential advisors to Mr. Christopher, you had to get out search warrents and had to subpoena us to GET BACK IN YOUR HOOMEROOM AND GET YOUR WORK IN!! Also homeroom teachers, we bequeath to you and your September Seventh Graders our faculty for remaining quiet as mice in our seats during homeroom. And speaking of your youngest G. W. generation, already you are looking forward to fresher and greener fields, for next year will bring you a package of Whiz-z-z, the best Seventh Graders there are. ITEM II— First: To the Juniors led by John (sigh-h-h) Neal, we leave the lunch room (what’s left of it) with regrets that we couldn’t leave Allan Ladd, John Payne, Sterling Hayden and George Montgomery, as waiters. Maybe you can persuade the delightful hosts at each table to stack the trays. Attention, Stink Davis. Second: Of course, dear Juniors, to you goes the time honored privilege of occupying our assembly seats. How well we remember last year, all the boys matching to see who would get to sit by Frannie Jones. This year we are sorry that not even year-before-last-chewing gum is left under these seats. But as an extra surprise we shall equip each seat with a volumn of assorted Jokes by Gert Link and your own Johnnie Clement. Speaking of corn, this Clement boy ought really to do big things next year. (He’s watered that corn and tomato patch (plug) long enough.) Third: We Seniors would like to leave you Juniors a little advice. A. Anything, just anything you might want to do — for instance, failing courses, staying in 302 when late to class, having 3y points deducted when we skipped class and anything else daring and exciting — say, “This is a Senior privilege” and do it. Ha, you’ve no idea how quickly you can get a reserved seat in our beloved principal’s office. B. We bequeath our talent of hiding behind Volume C of The Americana, while we persued our favorite literature. Superman, Comics. This fits exactly in the encyclopedia and Miss Hodges will get the impression that you’re a genius. However, don’t get your camouflage upside down, as “Cotton” Fralin did. C. To the literary minded in this group we leave the sage advice, that if you like to write, in English 8 you will come to realize that there is “gold in them thar’ words.” To quote John Murray, “I’ll write you an essay for a dollar. Hank!” 91 The Nineteen Forty-four Cavalier George Washington High School ITEM Ill- First: To the unsuspecting Sophomores we leave: Ann Eggleston, who by hook or crook (mostly crook) hopes to get out of the Junior Class come June. She is enough to liven you up next year. Second: We leave Mrs. R. A. Travis who runs a close second to Mr. Simpson in history quizes. Third: We leave the ashes of the stadium or what was a stadium until Christmas Eve night, when an imaginary team got red hot and burnt it up. Also we leave the $5,000.00 question “Does Smoke Get In Your Eyes” when you find out “Who Blew Out the Flame”?? To the boys of this class we urge you to drink lots of milk, eat wheaties and listen to Jack Arm- strong — The All-1-1-1 American Boy, so you too can be big football players like Harry McFarling and Ernest Westbrook. ITEM IV— To the innocent (question) Freshmen we leave: First: The annexes popularly known as doghouses, and for good reason too. Many happy days are spent in these little hovels, which are typical igloos in winter and African huts in summer. We thought about leaving subways to carry you out to them on rainy days, but some man named Roosevelt put a stop to that. Second: To the fresh boys, oops, freshman boys, G. G. Fralin, Charlie Willie, Jimmy Hamlin, Lindo White and Leon Graybill we leave Boo Bass, who is taking up where Hatcher left off. She is quite well trained in the art of captivating the male. Third: To the girls, we leave make-up kits attached to each d esk so that you won’t have to rummage thro’ your purses before meeting “O and O” next period. ITEM V— To the cute lil’ Eighth Graders we leave: First: Buck Keaton who has been one of you so long that he can really put you in the “Know” about everything. Second: Miss Dorothy Fitzgerald, who will no doubt begin your training in the when, where and whats of Stamps and Bonds, Red Cross Drives and what have you. Here’s wishing you all sort of success with your attempts. ITEM VI— To the Seventh Graders we leave: First: The halls and long may you reign. Maybe it’s tradition or maybe it’s something else. Any- how the seventh graders have always been sole owners and have had the right of way in those halls. Right about here we’d like to leave (keep your seat, Lindy, we’re not through yet) certain things that certain Seniors certainly want us to leave certain other people. Why certainly! To-wit: Section No. I. Homecoming Queen Jones leaves to candidate-for-the-title-in-’45 Ann Luther her best wishes for a happy Senior year. Section No. 2. Grace Kappes leaves Dickie Walker, Tex Newton, M. J. Crawley and Joe Wellmen all the heart full of love, autographed with her motto: “Well, Curl my nose and call me Kappes!” Section No. 3. Sam Patterson leaves his part in the Senior Play to Buddy Barker, already a famed actor from The Robertson Avenue House of Dramatics. Section No. 4. Ellen Dyer leaves “Pistol Packin’ Mama” to Richard Wells. Section No. 5. T. G. Harper leaves to the school in general his latest best seller entitled, “The Major and the Minors” or “blood, sweat and hup-to-three-four” dedicated with a heart full of love and a tommy-gun full of bullets to Major Macon Ellis. 92 Section No. 6. Betsy Robertson leaves her beautiful eyes and her personality to Jean Dyer, who seems to be doing all right on her own. Section No. 7. Amy Lee was going to leave Numa but Uncle Sam changed their plans. Section No. 8. The members of Table No. X, better known as those jerks who are always giving birthday parties, leave the table to Betty (Thanks) Brewer with best wishes for many happy returns of the days. Section No. 9. To Betty Wright Williams we leave Betty Keck’s beautious smile. Section No. 10. To Matt Crawley, Marshall Vernon leaves his “perfect attendance and no tardies” record, although he has had to come in from Milton, through snow and ice. Section No. II. Alice Andrews leaves her dancing technique to Julia Hiller. Section No. 12. Jenny Harrison leaves her contagious laugh and mischievous glances to Ann Lanier. Section No. 1 3. Not that thirteen is unlucky, for Gurdine Link would like to leave a large package of her abundant per- sonality to the school in general. I am sure that a good laugh is always welcome. Section No. 14. The Payne twins bequeath their blonde locks to the Speer twins. We wish there were something to say about the boys who would have graduated with us, had it not been for the war. However, on commencement night (we always wondered why they call it commence- ment when we are really finishing) on that night they will be with us in spirit. We hope that everything has been ladled out to the satisfaction of all concerned. So in the words of Charles Scott Fralin, Jr., we say: “Think maybe we ought to put a stop to this.” Therefore in witness thereof having hereunto set our hand and seal this the 26th day of May, in the year of Our Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Forty-Four.

THE WORLD MIGHT PASS YOU BY FROM sunrise to Vespers and on through the night great sounds are filling the air. Grave and portentous sounds — exciting and joyous sounds. The sound of news from distant lands that even Axis propaganda cannot distort for long. From dawn to dusk and around the clock. The sound of marching feet and the roar of battle and the whir of propeller to remind us that there is greater strength in free-thinking individuals than in slave-whipped hordes. As each second passes around the clock this sound becomes clearer — clearer. And as the hours march in parade there is music and fun — gaiety and laughter — great ringing speech and the whisper of lullaby. There is stirring drama for the asking, the throbbing evidence of man’s will for progress — and the hush of prayer. The minds of our allies to listen to — the thoughts of alien lands to hear and understand — and by under- standing accept or reject as they may accept or reject the principles WE hold with. There is much to hear — and having heard — to heed — and having heeded — to act upon. This is YOUR world. Know it. Listen to your radio. In just a moment, the world might pass you by! It is the sober intent and solemn pledge of the Blue and its affiliated stations that every program emanating from our studios, sent across the world by our trans- mitting towers, shall be worthy of the greatness of man ' s newly-found power — Radio.
