S ' enior i As I was walking home one spring afternoon in the year of 1965 from my work as public health nurse for New York City, I happened to gaze upon a sign which read “Fortune Telling”. At this time I became curious to know what had happened to my classmates of 1950-51, so I wandered up the rocky trail to the little green trailer, opened the door and walked in. As I gazed into the crystal ball I found that my classmates were scattered all over the United States. This is what I found happening to them. A little politician, none other than Marvin Jamison, pacing tire stairs in the White House at Wash¬ ington, D. C. He must be anxiously waiting for his “Private Secretary,” Millie Lawing, to powder her nose and come down to lunch. While gazing in the crystal ball I also found the boss of the automobile factory in Detroit, Michigan, Bennie Parker, earnestly begging Clarence Lamb to concentrate on his work and forget his fiancee, Connie Vess, who is owner of the Vess Style Shoppe in Jacktown, N. C., for the time being. Can you imagine Bobby Eplee as professor at Harvard University and still unmarried? I was really surprised to find the class of ’51 has so many secretaries. They are—Frances Laugh- ridge, secretary at First National Bank, Strown Town, N. C; Lillian Seamon as secretary for R. J. Reyn¬ olds Tobacco Company in Winston-Salem, N. C., and Agnes Wilkerson a secretary for the Robert Bow¬ man Motor Company in Alabama. Nice secretaries, aren’t they??? Through the crystal ball I found Donald Hickman as superintendent of the Bethlehem Steel Com¬ pany in Baltimore, Maryland. He is married to the former Geneva Lewis. She keeps herself plenty busy. She drives the delivery truck for Donald. To my surprise, I found Doris Hemphill as the wife of a professor, both are teaching school at the University of California. Ruby Gilliam is in Paris, designing gowns for Mrs. Vanderfellow, Jr. Reba Bowman is teaching French at Woman’s College of the Univer¬ sity of North Carolina. She is married to a famous sculptor, Carl Rash. Dean Elliott is operator of the Greyhound Bus Lines, Betty Morgan is his bookkeeper. Junior Harris is now director for Para¬ mount Movies, and is a bachelor. Charles Walker is now teaching dramatics. His whole interest is in teaching. He is now teaching at University of Arizona. Neal Morgan is now in the navy, he is stationed at San Francisco California. Doris Rumfelt is in the WAVES and stationed there too. I find Leroy Williams working as assistant Manager for Supak and Sons, Minneapolis 1, Minne¬ sota, and Ivan Landis is owner of Minute Topica Products, Inc., in New York. I was very happy to find that my Senior Class were doing so well in the various vocations they had chosen. Since that afternoon in April, 1965, I have not visited the little green trailer of the fortune teller. No, it is not that I cared less about my class, but that somehow, mysterious as it may seem, the little sreen trailer was not there the next dav, nor have I been able to find it.

On a September day in 1939 school year began with a happy, good looking and frightened group of hoys and girls entering the first grade at Glenwood School. The first grade was under the direction of Miss Wagner. By the time the next year came around several had moved away and some had moved in. That year we were under the direction of Miss Landis. Mrs. Hemphill was our teacher in the third grade. That year we made a lot of progress toward reaching the twelfth grade. In the fourth grade we tried to learn a little about Geography. Mrs. Steppe was our director. Now we realized just how little we knew when we reached the fifth grade. That year we made a success with the help of Miss Beam. M rs. Lois Shaw was our sixth grade teacher. In the seventh grade Mrs. Dessie Lawing guided us in the deep waters of mathematics, history, geography and English. In the eighth grade the students from Sugar Hill who joined us were: Betty Morgan, Agnes Wil- kerson, Bill James, Robert Parker, Ruby Marlowe, Edith Jones,Betty Wilkerson, Helen Ledbetter, Annie Fay Ledbetter, Earl Queen. Rupert Hall, Earl McKinney, Eunice Reel, Jimmy Styles, Laurence Parker, Paul Jolley, Ray Wilson, and Doris Hemphill. The students from Dysartville were Billy Guf¬ fey. Ivan Landis, Geneva Lewis, and Maxine Huskins. Doris Rumfelt, Erie Chapman and Louise Fisher joined us from other schools. The students who dropped out this year were: Ben Pyatt, Nina Fay Day, Ray Day, Ray Wilson, Earl Queen. This year we had several teachers but Mrs. Laura Gentry was our final teacher. We entered high school while Mr. W. V. Nix was principal. Our sponsor was Mrs. Truby Painter. Our Student Council member was Reba Bowman. We entered the tenth grade under the supervision of Miss Wilma Byrd. This year we set out for a good year of work with a new principal, Mr. W. P. Whitesides. Our officers were: President, Robert Parker; Vice President, Doris Rumfelt; Secretary and Treasurer, Betty Morgan; Student Council Mem¬ bers, Reba Bowman and Dean Elliott. Bv this time our enrollment had dropped to 24. We had two to join us from Marion Hi—Clarence Lamb and Charles Walker. We were very glad to have them. Mrs. Bradsher was our Junior sponsor. We had two class projects to complete this year—the Junior Play, “Pleased To Meetcha,” given in the school auditorium on November 22, 1949, and the Junior-Senior Banquet which followed the “Dutch Motif” at the Glenwood Cafeteria, April 27, 1950. Another event of the Junior year was ordering our rings. The class officers were: President, Bennie Parker; Vice President, Louise Killian; Secretary and Treasurer, Ruhv Gilliam; Student Council Members, Reba Bowman, Dean Elliott and Millie Lawing. The Class of 1950 began its final year under the guidance of Miss Wilma Byrd. The election of class officers and the Annual Staff were among the important business of the year. During the years the class enrollment rose as high as 50 in the eighth grade and dropped to 24 in the twelfth. Of the original class which began school in the fall of 1939 at Glenwood, Millie Lawing, Mar¬ vin Jamison, Dean Elliott, Frances Laughridge, Bobby Eplee, Carl Rash, Bennie Parker, Neal Morgan, are all that remain. As you read this history, you will remember that the twenty-four seniors were planning a second semester full of work and pleasure. Along with the Senior Play, the Junior-Senior Banquet and gradu¬ ation, the thought of Homecoming, the first in the history of the school. The Nuslika went to press too early to record any of these events but not too earlly to read the anticipation of the pleasure and sense of accomplishment that accompanies them.
