Through these dear halls we strode, When life was carefree; Yes, happy days were these For the class of ' 53. Now the time has come, The moments swiftly flee, When we must depart. This class of ' 53. To our teachers, we would say Many thanks to thee For you loving guidance Of the class of ' 53. To those we leave behind, Juniors, Sophs, Freshmen, three, Many blessings to you From the class of ' 53. When in future days we dream, Happy we will be, If we hallow memories Of the class of ' 53. Raymond Ledbetter POET CLASS COLORS CLASS FLOWER Blue and Gold Blue Violets CLASS MOTTO " The higher we climb the better the view. " HISTORY OF CLASS OF 53 History was indeed begun when, twelve years ago last September, a crowd of hurrying mothers led, followed, or dragged their hopefuls to the seat of learning. Here they were received by Miss Barbara Wagner and Mrs. Earl Woody, and the first round of the ladder of knowledge was mounted. Eight years we slaved, learning what we possibly could, forgetting the rest. Long remembered will be the multiplication table because of its difficulty. In May 1950, eighty-one of us bade Mr. and Mrs. William Elmore good-bye, thinking that we were ready for high school and that all worries were over. In September the same year, we entered high school. At last we were experiencing that grand feeling of being a " high school student. " To get to the right class on time and not to starve before lunch became our chief ambitions. We regret to say that these goals are as yet unattained. Were our heads held high when we became " Sophomores. " Some of the " freshmen greenness " had worn off and we were on the way to becoming Seniors, but algebra and biology came along to put our minds back to work again. The Junior Year! Will we ever forget the play " Faith, Hope, and Flarity? " The scuttle for raising money to give the Seniors a banquet or the joy of actually going to the banquet? But rings, rings, class ringsl stand out in our memory as being the most important. Shall we ever forget the feeling of choosing the ring that we were to wear? The ring which was to remind us of our Alma Mater and our carefree classmates. A dignified number, left at the gates of learning eleven long years ago, were Seniors on the home stretch. We started our last year with much zeal and enthusiasm knowing there were many things that were yet to be completed. Imagine ordering our invitation, announcing our gradauation exercises the printing of our annual, " The Nushka " anticipating a banquet given for us. Through all these incidentsand many otherswe haveat last ascended the top round of the ladder of a high school educa- tion. As we continue the endless task of learning, our thoughts are drawn to these lines written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime. A nd, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sands of time. Anne Haney CLASS HISTORIAN CLASS PROPHECY This is another hot sultry day in July 1965. I am secretary for the Cairo Hotel in Washington, D.C., and am beginning my two weeks ' vacation. For quite awhile, I had been wondering where my classmates were and what positions they hold. When I stepped off the bus in Marion, whom should I see first? None other than Anne Haney! She told me that she is teaching at the University of N.C. , and plans to be married soon. Anne says that Doris Ledbetter is an actress in Hollywood and still unmarried. Helen Hill is manager of Belk Broome ' s Company in Sugar Hill. Anna Laura Morgan is now the wife of Henry Humphries and is nursing at Marion General Hospital. Rose Ann Hensley and Doris Morgan are famous hill-billy singers. As it was lunc h time, we departed . I went into Walker ' s Cafe and to my surprise I saw Lewis Walker. He joked, " I am the owner of this grub house. " Then I recognized one of the waitresses, who was Betty Lou Gardner. Lewis told me that Raymond Ledbetter is a professor at Lenior Rhyne College. Nancy Marlowe is owner of Marlowe ' s Beauty Shoppe in Glenwood. Barbara Cooper writes stories about the personal affairs of movie stars. After I ate lunch, I journeyed on down Main Street. Whiledoing some window shopping, a familiar name caught my eye which read " Katy Holland ' s Record Shop. " While talking to Katy, I learned that Zula Mae Sprouse is a nurse at Winston-Salem Hospital and is married to a photographer. She also told me of Wayne Laughridge, who is owner of the Lover ' s Theater in Asheville. As I strolled on down the street, I decided to go into Workman ' s and, to my surprise,! ran into Betty Jo Hall, whosaid that she is still happily married and has acute little girl. Betty told me that Marvin Williams is married and is a Basketball Coach at Wake Forest. Tom Hall is a salesman for Ford cars. I was very tired and thirsty; so I stopped at the drug store. The attractive little " soda jerk " was Effie Price. She exclaimed that she was going to get married next month and move to Atlanta. She informed me that Mary Ann Moss is married to an X-ray technician and living in Flordia. Edna Seaman is married to a doctor and is residing in New York. Larry Wiggins and Carroll Evans are living lives of bachelorhood in Tennessee. Our conversation came to an end, and I was on my way again. As I was leisurely walking down the street, I noticed a policeman that looked familiar. Then in a second, I knew it was Dan Gilliam I He told me that Charles Burgin is a colonel in the army and is engaged to a girl in Hawaii. He said that Glenn Marlowe iso lawyer in Charlotte and his secretary is Dorris Reel . I also learned from Dan that Estelle Holland and Ray Lamb have been married two years. Then who do youthink came up the street? It was Wayne Sprousel He exclaimed that Arnold Baker and he drive Queen City Buses and like their jobs fine. Wayne also gave the astounding news that Mary Sumlinis teaching school in Chicago! And that Norma Harri u a famous short story writer, now living in Texas, and her business manager is Guy Lane! One day while marketing at the grocery store in Glenwood, I saw Ruth Marlowe, who said that she was work- ing In the bank at Marion and that Rebecca She! I had married a wealthy man and islivingin Paris. She also told me that Ernest Ledbetter is manager of the Dixie Home Store in Morganton; and Mildred Aldridge is the wife of a famous baseball player who plays with the Yankees. My vacation came to an end and I slowly climbed aboard the bus. Already seated in the bus was Hughcelle Martin. We started talking about our old school pals and he related that he had recently read in the paper that Doris Wilkersonis a missionary in South Africa. Hughcelle informed me that he was on hisway to Raleigh to open his new department store, where Lou Ann Veirs will be his assistant manager. All too soon, we arrived at Hugh- celle ' s destination, and I bid him good-bye. As I soared along the road, I thought of my classmates and how scattered we had become in twelve years. While thinking back to my school days at Glenwood High, I was quite surprised that my classmates were now doing so well in life; and with a feeling of satisfaction, I closed my eyes and fell asleep.
