" ■4 Page 3 •• JUST SENIORS jforetuorb IF " Just Seniors " does not call vividly to mind those happen- ings experienced by the Senior Class of 1926, it fails most lamentably in its purpose. The reader will doubtless take note of the fact that the book contains only those things having to do with the Senior Class. To him we wish to explain that this is the idea embodied in a memory book.

Paul is the Vice-President and sheik of our class Although he is a ladies ' man he manages to find time for athletics. It is a mystery to the class what Paul uses on his hair. Some say it is Vick ' s VapoRub. Maybe so — it isn ' t witch hazel.

She shines in everything she does; she can " parlez-vous " like a true daughter of France. For such a tiny per- sonage she has her share of grit and determination, for when she starts a job you may rest assured she ' ll see it through. Sally is a genius at manipulating a Ford, but she has decided that she will start her career by studying Cadillacs.

The boys pro ' nounced him " a fine thing " right off the bat, but the girls insisted he was dumb — no winning wiles could make him pay them the least attention. He ' s a " Johnny on the spot " for any subject that comes up — even the girls will admit that- -now. Bessie Langhorne Barham Basketball, ' 25; ' 26; Picture Editor Memory Book ' 26; Junior Play, ' 25; Testator Memory Book, ' 26; Athletic Association, " 25. No matter what or where it is, Bessie is always ready to do her share and someone else ' s too. Always happy and gay, sl e Kas a cheery smile for each and everyone of us. Her athletic ability makes her a valuable asset to our teams and her great dramatic ability leads us to think that she will be our second Mary Pickford. ... RuFus Edwin Batton Rufus has only been with us a short time; yet he has already won the heart of the whole class and a certain " Dot " " that " has moved far away. Beulah Annetta Beale Beulah, our " plump " Senior, has been with us all through our perilous journey in high school. Many ' s the time her good marks have caused some gentle (?) but failing pupil to become blood-thirsty. She seems to know just when to be jolly and just when to be serious — a good quality, and a rare one. ••4 Page 6 -- V JUST SENIORS Charlie Best Football, ' ij, ' 24, ' 35; Junior Play, ' 25. Being " hefty " qualified Charlie for left guard on the football team. You can call him by any of his nick- names: " Red, " " Carrott ' Top, " " Fatty, " " Tubby; " he doesn ' t care. It has been rumored about the school that Charlie is crazy about " Beans. " William Best " billy " Business Manager Football Team, ' 2?. William, religiously calkd Billy, was business mana- gerof thefootballi«ujf «nd goodoneatthat. Using that personality of his roarkes it possible for him to collect quarters even frdm the fence climbers with- out giving or receiving offense. 1 Mildred Boyd S pev h tkof a mystery, this young lady. There are hUnofeds of questions we would like to ask her, but it ' s almost ' impossible to get behind that quiet re- serve of hers. Some day I will, tho; and then I ' ll tell you what it ' s all about. Claudia Virginia Bradford Junior Play, ' 25. Claudia is an earnest young Senior that doesn ' t fail to give her opinion on all occasions. She ' s so full of dignity that it shows even in her walk; yet she knows how to come down to earth and be com- panionable. ■ Page 7}fl- JUS T SENIORS Julia Carter " ? one Mnow her but to love her " Julia, tho not a brilliant scholar, always manages to pass her work without too much studying. She ' s a sweet, accommodating girl with a quiet dignity that wins her many friends. Edwin Stuart C ROW " Scratchy, " as Edwin is generally known through- out thgt school, is the baby of our class. We ' re proud to tell you he ' s one of the youngest Seniors to graduate from this school for many a year. Fred Crowson Football, ' 24, " 25; Junior Play, ' 25. STRONG MAN CROWSON DEDICATED TO " pIe " Under the mighty acting bar Strong man Crowson stands, Frecl, a mighty man is he With large and sinewy hands.

In ' deed, little would her manner show that during her " off hours " she is always in for all the fun and frolic there is to be found. Vivian Dawson Junior Play, ' 25. Vivian seems very -quiet and dignified, but she can be as jolly as tfie rest. It is not her disposition to have a crush on you for a while then cast it all aside; once your friend, she is always your friend. Elizabeth Rhea Dewey " liba rhea " Basketball, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26; Vice-President Athletic Association, ' 25. " Liba Rhea " can do anything from trying to dance " the Charleston " to maneuvering a car. But on the basketball court, she wins the jug. Her hobby is athletics, and her abomination is studying. She was voted the most athletic girl in the Senior Class. Thomas Dorset been in our class less than a year, but he any warm friends with his ready smile •4 Page 9} - E N I O R S ULiNE Edwards Independent Pauline talks more than anyone else in the class. She has a charming personaUty, that gets her what she wants. We expect to hear from her in Congress. Orchestra for Junior Play, Senior Play, Junior-Senior Banquet, ' 2,5; Orchestra, ' ay. " She hath music in her soul " That must be true of Maude, for she can extract music from the most extinct cello. She is a good sport in every way, and is always obliging. Mary Virginia Gardner Mary is rJ ere; but still, by her winning person- ality, charm and wit, she has gained an enviable posi- tion Ml the hearts of all her Senior classmates. Alice Gideon Grantham Alice just won ' t take things seriously. But what if she doesn ' t? She usually gets by as well as the rest of us. She ' s full of life and always has a humor- ous remark to make. It ' s a clever person indeed who has the last word with Alice. Maude Fortson • Page 10 JUST S E N I O R S David Grantham You can si:;e David up with a giggle, a grin, and a fair amount pftiiluff. Whether these will carry him through his ' Senior year we know not. William Granger Haynes " kidu " Kid " is renowned in the school for his " snowdrift " hair. Not counting this drawback he is a good fellow and wherever he goes keeps the crowd laugh- ing at his jokes and witty remarks. Sadie Belle Harris SUNSHINE McNeil Literary Society, ' 22. Sadie is just what her nickname implies, always smil ' ing and trying to brighten somebody ' s life. Just give her a dorine, a comb, and some " Teaberry, " and she ' s perfectly content. Lela Mae Hobbs Lela Mae is full of pep; she can act reserved when the -hfiftion strikes her, but it is very seldom that it does. If " evie.ryone kept the spirit she does, you would not see many gloomy faces around. She is original and is always giving us some new expression. Put all this together and you will get a fine ole girl. ■• Page JUST SENIORS LuLA Gilmer Hood A nice, quiet girl is Lula, but she ' s no Prudence Prim. Even tho ' she stayed in Mt. Olive for a time, she doesn ' t put on any country ways — and that ' s something. Claudia Irwin " shrimp " Whenever you see a paif of grejfiiigf ' laughing, brown eyes, and hear an infectibus gle you may be sure you have found Claudiaj Those eyes, the envy of all Senior girls — hay vamped everyone within a territory ' the radfcs of which includes Mt.

Florence Brinkley Johnson Basketball, ' 25r, ' a6; Athletic Association, ' i? ' ; Junior Play, ' a ; Cheerleader, ' 26; Prophet, " 26; Senior WritC ' Up Editor, ' 26. To a large quantity of restless energy, add a dash of mischief, a teaspoonful of spice, and several hand ' fuls of spontaniety. Sift all these ingredients into a petite body; add to the mixture a crinkly smile, in- fectious cheerfulness, plenty of pep mixed with gentle consideration, plus frankness, and a generous supply of sweetness. Place to grow in the sunshine of the 1926 room, and at the end of the school term you have the Senior ' s joy — Florence Johnson. Louise Johnston " long legs " Glee Club, ' 24, ' 25; Vice-President Glee Club, Junior Play, ' 25; Statistician, ' 26. During her four years in G. H.S., Louise has achieved a great success in her studies and has been a faithful member of the Glee Club for the past two years. She is truly one of those persons whom one, on better aquaintance, grows to like immensely, and he always comes through with a " smile that won ' t 25; • Page 12 -- Margaret Downing Kornegay Athletic Association, ' 25; Junior Play, ' 25. Margaret is one of our more substantial Seniors. Her favorite expression is " Aw, Gee!, " which we all know originated in Kenansville; for she keeps the road hot between Goldsboro and that city every Sunday afternoon. She, like Virginia, is interested in athletics, always attending the football and basketball games. " She seems a part of G, H. S.; we couldn ' t do without her. Annie Virginia Kornegay Assistant Business Manager Junior Play; Manager Girls ' Basketball ' 26; Basketball, ' 25, ' 26; Latin Club, ' 25; Cheerleader of Football Team, ' 25; Athletic Association, ' 25. Did you hear that loud laughter on the back seat? Well, it ' s Virginia. She is nice and quiet (?) until the giggle escapes. At football games she is a reg- ular attender, and maybe this accounts for her am- bition to " punt " a football forty yards. William Dortch Langston Football, ' 2j, ' 24, ' 25; Junior Play, ' 2 . Dortch, known among the boys as " Spoofer, " is extremely popular with all the young-folks. With his cheerful disposition and friendly ways he is val- uable to the entire high school. As clown of the class, he delights in paradoxes, and his quaint terms of expression and whimsical interpretations of as- signments are theioy of his class. Dortch has al- ways found time to devote to athletics, and can quickly forget " sheiking " when it comes to a " fly- ing tackle " or a slide in home. Sara Langston " Say not unto her lest she blush " In Sara we see a great model. She is a conscientious student, and is never found lacking on history class(?) ■ Page 13 ■ JUST S E N I O R S Louise Latham Assistant Business Manager of Junior Play, Athletic Association, ' a?; Latin Club, ' 25. Louise has a way all her own, and is one of our jol- liest students. Her ready smile and spontaniety have won for her a place in many hearts. Marion Rosemond Latta Rosemond, with his quiet and dignified manner, goes among us attending to his business and school work. Along with these duties he manages always to have time for the fairer sex — especially one certain de- mure little lady. Haywood Eugene Lynch " jeff " Toastmaster, ' 25; Junior Play, ' if; Cheerleader, ' 26. Our " short circuit! " I n ' t he cute? And talk about it — the funniest things are said with the most naive expression. We look for great achieve- ment from the collegiate member of our class. Ida Margoles Latin Club, ' 25; Athletic sssciation, ' 25. Ida ' s musical ability, her jolly disposition, and her studiousness alj cornbine to make her one of our most enviable Seniors. Her chief aim is to be a second Slim Jim, but as long as she continues her jolly giggle, I ' m afraid there is little hope for her. • Page 14 • JUS T SENIORS Sarah Hill Moore " red head " Well! here the Senior Class has to boast of its great- est sleeper. We have all sorts of champions of var- ious deeds in our class but everyone chooses Sarah Hill as the Queen of Sleep. Her highest ambition is to be a second Rip Van ' Winkle, and we hope to give her the chance to win that title as soon as com- mencement is over. Tho these things are true of her, Sarah Hill is one of our best Seniors y Alice Musgrave Interclassdebates, ' 23 . Junior Play, ' 2 i ; Latin Club, " 25. Alice is a girl whom, we all like. It is quite a pleas- ure to see iier calm, cool, composed person giving a difficult speech in Pnglkh Class. Miss Gordner must feel sKe really has accomplished something when this child recites. We don ' t want to say she is sweet; ' cause she is not mushy — hut sweet is the adjective for her. And lest we forget — a certain tall individual is not averse to riding in her Cadillac. Mary Elizabeth McDonald Mary is the type that grows on you. She seems so quiet that you would never suspect she knew a joke. But don ' t let her fool -you, she can crack as many as the next one. hen it comes to books, she just simply skips through them. Esther Virginia Norris " esta " V " Esta " is full of life and has a smile for everybody. She has the Reputation of being a good sport. Although her play comes before her work, we aren ' t fearing for her futhre success; for she has all the ' qualities of a real girl. She is bright, happy, and always ready for a good tivAtS • Page 15 E N T O R S Helen Ruth Pate Athletic Association, ' 25; Latin Club, " 25; " She ' s just a sweet little girl with a dear little curl, " but if you want to know the latest(?) — ask Ruth. Everyone Ukes her, because she is so frank and truth- ful. Besides she has a patent on what is called " the everlasting giggle. " Ruth has a temper; and believe me, she doesn ' t mind telling you what ' s on her mind when you ruffle her brow. As for beaux — watch all Mt. Olive cars. Beulah Lee Sadler With smiles and plenty of life, Comes Beulah, so jolly and nice; She speaks to each student As she watches for the next, But her friendliest greetings Are to the male sex. Henry Marvin Sherard Latin Club, ' 25. Marvin has numerous characteristics. He is punc- tual — the bell has rung on time at the end of every period this whole year. He has a creative turn of mind; he can build three and five tube radio sets as well as set to rhythm various fancies that come to him. Edgar Alonzo Simkins " simp " " Simp ' s " k)good old boy and is nothing that his nick- name impies. As a worker " Simp " is " quite the berries " and when called on is right there ready to work. His only drawback is timidity; when a girl smiles at him, he turns so many colors he resembles a barber ' s pole. JUST SENIORS Annie Grimes Simmons Interclass debates, ' ij. Annie is very timid and meek, but with these go many good -oualitie s. She is very sincere in her friendship There is i t mf fifi too good for her to do for j4 ' fte ■l«3i!fCyto learn is unlimited; and if she sees that she can ' t accomplish a thing by trying once, she tries until she succeeds. Howard S IMMONS FIT2 Track Team, ' aj, ' 2.4; Baseball, ' 24, ' a , ' 26; Football, ' 23, " 24, ' 25; Captain of team, " 25; Basketball Team, ' 24, ' 2?, ' 26; Junior Play, ' 25. Prominent for three years in G. H. S. athletics, Howard has always stood for a clean game, a hard fight, and good sportsmanship. He knows how to win without vanity and to lose without chagrin. This year as Ciuitain of the focy;ball squad, he car- ried his team |iccessfully into the championship series until eliminated by Rocky Mount ' s team. Along with his athletic ability Howard has always been an average student; when it comes to answering history questions he ' s the only one present. His chief ambitions are to eat as much as he can, and to " spoof " you along. Alice Grace Slaughter ;fyM ( " fattie " Latin Club, ' 2 ' ;; Junior Play, ' 25. " Alice Grace " is one of our cutest girls. Her jolly good humor, catching laughter, and broad grin helps any class. She ' s some teaser — for information ask Ruth Pate. Mary Elizabeth Smith " pie " Basketball, ' 25, ' 26; Athletic Association, ' 25. Whenever you sec a little Chevrolet reposing by the side of the road with two flat tires, then you ' ve found " Pie. " Bht aflat tije or anything else on earth doesn ' t bother " Pie. " She ' s absolutely irresponsible, but her good disposition and jolly ways make her one of our best liked Seniors. • Page 17 - E N I O R S Sadie Lou Southerland Basketball, ' 25; Orchestra for Junior Play, ' 25 ' ; Pianist, ' 26. The class of ' 26 has been so fortunate as to have a live wire with them cjuring the four years spent in G. H. S. On the basketball court Sadie Lou is a good " shooter " , and puts some regular go-get- ' em spirit in every -game she ' s in. Don ' t know what the old school will do next year ' cause its little pianist is liable to be " Alabama Bound " . Bunny Elizabeth Spears Athletic Association, ' 25; Latin Club, ' 25 ' . Elizabeth is very quiet, but brush this aside and she is a fine pal. If she likes you, she likes you; if she happens to have a dislike for one she has the ability to avoid showing it. Just wish we had more like her. Mary Elizabeth Spence Hurrah for Mary, the smallest member of our class! But how she shocks us sometimes with her remarks that show great knowledge. To put it in a nutshell Mary is a fine pal ; and although she does not know the history book " by heart, she makes up for all lost knowledge when it comes to French and shorthand. Fredrick Stallings " fred " ; ' ' country " Assistant Business Manager of Junior Play, ' 25; Treasurer of Latin Club, ' 25. Fred joined us at Station No. 2., Sophomore Land. Here he at once won the admiration of the whole class. Even tho ' he was one of these " green coun- try kids " he surely has tamed down to the G. H. S. life. We have had many laughs at his wit. • Page 18 - JUST SENIORS Lola Stallings To understand, Lola one must know her quite well, for she has the reputation of being a quiet, dignified little Senior. Just the same she fits in, and we ' d feel a loss without her. ' Turner Stanley STAN Turner is very quiet; that is, except when he is play- ing his clarinet, and then he makes more noise than static in a radio. " Stan " is always willing to help out — a modern " eood Samaritan " . Gertrude Stith Interclass Debates, ' ij, ' 24; Alternate in Triangular Debates, ' i " ;; Latin Club, ' a . Gertrude is one of those rare. ignifkjd girls (seldom found in a Seiaieri!;;lass). S »-i ' vgry quiet and re- serv and my j,-t(f 54fesNellie ' s delight regards all hep ' keifBoardsigns " . Whether it is debating or reciting the " Gypsy Trail " Gertrude always re- ceives a spontaneous applause. Robert Summerlin Junior Play, " 2 r. Robert is very quiet and dignified in school but — out of chool there is no end to the fun you can have with him. . He is ga64 natured and makes friends with everyone. Like the others of his family he is: " Small in stature, but big in heart. And always willing to do his part. " ■ Page 19 • JUST SENIORS George Dewey Thompson Vice-President of Class, ' 24; Junior Play, ' 25. How George ever passes oral English, we don ' t know; ' cause every time he gets up to recite, he can- not resist the temptation to laugh. He is so full of fun that the photographer couldn ' t even get a ser- ious picture of him for this book. If you embarrass him, he blushes sweetly and shows a little dimple in his cheek. He ' s a good sport, good natured, and always looks on the bright side of things. Louise Josephine Thompson Louise IS one of the fe fr who do not mind work. She is very accommoda ng and always does her best to help whenever galled upon. She has given val- uable aid to the write-up committee. William Toler OrchesN , ' 24Y25, ' 26. Willie, one 91 our most talented musicians, is the unorcTVffffed kjfig of bashful blushing. Ask him my thing H»a- ou ' ll get the answer with a blush that ' s the env f all the girls. Fannie Marie Willis Secretary Class, ' 2 ; Junior Play, ' 25; Athletic Asso- ciation, ' 25; President Latin Club, ' 25. There ' s no coolness about this Fan. She ' s just a good old jWarm-hearted girl. When she came here a strangei two years ago, she dived right into school activities, jdoing her part and steadily gaining friends. Her " Hobb-y " is to ride in trucks. ■• IPage 20 - JUST S E N I O R S Lucy Mettrude Wise - Lucy has great ambitions. Not all of them are for her own self, though. She forsees a great future for her " Old North State. " She ' s very fond of history and " Wrigley ' s " . Robert Lyles Zealy " zealy " Class President, " 13; Sophomore Editor, Tarpttur, ' 24; Football, ' 23, ' 24, ' 2?; Baseball, ' 24, ' 25; Junior Play, ' 25; Editor-in-Chief Memory Book, ' 26. Robert is one of these mixtures of personality hard to explain. He is conscientious in the performance of school duties, and prompt and regular in attend- ance to everything. He never uses two words where one will do; his good humor is so unfailing, his assistance so ready, his style so amusing, that most folks find him altogether hkable. Well, he ' s just a good fellow all the way through. As quarter- back of the teams of ' 24 and ' 25 he displayed won- derful football ability and on more than one occasion has he caused the side-lines to gasp in awe at a " first in ten " when a gain seemed utterly impossible. JUST SENIORS J isJtorp of ttje Clasisi of ' 26 CLASS historian ! My, what a job had been thrust upon me ! I realised this more fully when I glanced at the clock on the mantel, only to find that two hours had passed since I sat down at my desk with this momentous task staring me in the face. And with what result — only the waste ' basket, at my side, filled to the brim with unfinished beginnings. Somehow it seemed impossible for me to recall the facts of our high school life. I gave a sigh of dispair as I crumpled up another sheet of paper in disgust and wearily glanced around my study. The room was certainly suitable for the writing of the class history, for practically everything in it was closely connected with old G. H. S. In one corner of the room stood the book-case, literally filled with my old text books; over the mantel was the blue and white pennant of G. H. S. ; and on the table were my kodak and a scrap-book crammed with things collected during m yHigh School career. At length my eyes stopped at a stack of old Tarpiturs on my desk. Here was the result of the work and toil of past historians, and now it was up to me to add another volumne to that collection — the history of the famous class of ' 26. I could appreciate to the fullest those records, indicative of many hours of mental anguish on the part of the authors. At the end of this survey I realised that the house was deathly quiet and then I remembered that everyone else had gone to bed, leaving me undisturbed to my work. How I envied them snug in their beds, for I also was tired and sleepy. I dropped my head down on my desk to give my weary brain a much needed rest, when suddenly the scene completely changed. I saw myself in the midst of a group of boys and girls, all laughing and talking. Why there was " Pie " Smith;thenas I looked again I realised that it was the dear old class of ' 26 with just a few exceptions. But somehow they all looked different; what was the matter? Why they seemed so much younger. Just as I was puz2;ling over this, I heard a group of older boys and girls as they passed by laugh and say, " Law, look at the Freshmen: aren ' t they tiny? " And then it suddenly dawned on me that I was a Freshman again. Was I sorry? No, I was thrilled to death ! Just at this time, the scene changed and I beheld us all trooping into the building and going into Miss Kornegay ' s room. There we listened eagerly to her, patiently explaining the mysteries of the unknown and advising us, who so terribly needed advice, how to make the most of our high school life. The scene shifted again and I saw us starting off our career with a vim, for we were giving a party in the auditorium to the teachers. We always were a diplomatic bunch, and this time we had managed to kill two birds with one stone — get on the good side of the teachers and have a grand time all in one. The scenes began to pass rapidly now and I soon saw us all gathered around a big bonfire roasting weenies. Well do I remember the picture of that good time! The next thing I knew a dark cloud had arisen on the otherwise clear horizon and every- thing became pitch dark. What did it mean? Exams of course; I should have known it. Even exams couldn ' t down us, for the majority of us managed to get by — even if it was by the skin of our teeth, and everything became bright and sunny again. Mr. President, honorable judges, and most worthy opponents ! Yes, there was our class in the midst of the debates ; losing once and winning once ' 26 showed the rest of the school that it had to be taken into account. •4 Page 22 " JUST SENIORS Then after another brief spell of darkness I saw dear ' 26 emerging triumphant from the perils of the freshman year; in fact we had actually won the Giddens Scholarship Cup, having made the highest record m scholarship during the entire year. Good for you old 26! After that we bade dear G. H. S. goodbye for three happy, carefree months. It was no time, however, before I saw us back again, with only a few of our number missing, feeling quite important this time as we were no longer mere Freshmen but " Sophisticated Sophs " . Endeavoring not to let this important fact go to our heads, we determined to struggle on and bring more honors to our class. Something was lacking though in this scene; what was it? Why of course, our dear Mr. Emery was missing, but in his place was a strange, good-looking young man whom we soon found out was Mr. Leftwich, our new principal. As Sophomores, we again found MissKornegay there to guide and help us over the rough places. Then one scene quickly followed another; though nothing of very much importance seemed to be taking place. But several times there flashed by pictures of different members of our class taking part in athletics. Though most of them were on the scrub teams, it is true some few had reached the coveted position of being on the regular teams. The next scene of any importance found us again leaving G. H. S. to enjoy our well-earned holiday and once more we were proudly carrying away the Giddens Scholarship Cup. The scenes stopped then for awhile and I was beginning to think that that was the end, when suddenly there we all were back at school. Our ranks seemed considerably thinner this time, but there were a goodly number of us yet, who undaunted were ready to conquer Geometry and any other bug-bear which might loom up on the horizon of our Junior year. Instead of Juniors though, we seemed to be acting as Freshmen. When I looked around again I observed even the Seniors having a mighty hard time to retain their dignity under the trying situation; for old G. H. S. had been added-on-to and remod- eled so that we— who thought we knew every nook and cranny by heart— were as much at a loss as to how to get around as were the greenest of the Freshmen. However as soon as we became accustomed to the changes we liked them, for now there was plenty of elbow room. The scenes then passed so rapidly that I could hardly keep track of them. Once again we had Miss Kornegay together with Mr. James, one of the new teachers, to help us with the various Junior undertakings. I next saw us ordermg our rmgs and then after a great many delays proudly showing them to the rest of the school. Then I beheld G. rt. b. m the midst of football season which of course meant that 26 was there too, many ot our class not only taking part but starrmg m the games. The following scene showed us hard at work over the Junior Play, and then the night of triumph flashed by when Seventeen was known by all to be more successful, financially as well as dramatically, than anyot the past Tumor Plays And then the most important scene of all took shape. I saw a large crowd gathered together around long tables m a lovely peach orchard. Everyone was so dressed up that it took me sometime to recognize the jolly Juniors together with our superior classmates, the Seniors. And the orchard turned out to be no other than the old auditorium so diked up that it didn ' t even know itself. This then was the long looked- forward-to, planned-for, and hard-worked-for Junior-Senior Banquet. Just as 1 had finished solving this mystery, I saw a little fellow arise way down at the end ot one ot the tables and start a speech of welcome to us. Our toastmaster— Haywood Lynch ! Just at this moment the scene was rudely pushed out and another one poked itself before my eyes- one which I wasn ' t a bit glad to see, for it showed us leavmg behind all the good times ot our Junior year and ready to start out on our last vacation. School days once more and I saw us all gathered together for the last lap of our journey. Sixty-eight Seniors, the largest number of any of the preceding classes, and so for the first time in the history of G. H. S. the Senior Class was divided. Miss Nellie, • Page 23 • JUST SENIORS who has been a true friend and advisor to the Seniors of the past, was there with her same sweet smile to greet part of us, while the rest were placed under the guidance of Mrs. Middleton, who, though a stranger, won our hearts on that first day. About this time I heard a disturbing noise, which completely routed the scene. I sat up with a start; where was I? I saw to my amazement that I was in my own study. But that noise — it then dawned on me that my clock was doling out the hour of twelve. I gave a sigh of relief, for the three years of my High School were as clear to me as if I had really in that short time lived through them again. And all that was necessary for me to do now was to write down the happenings of our past three years as I saw them — which is just what I have done. Now to go on with the events of our Senior year. Two of the thmgs which will stand out in the minds of every Senior are our football and basketball seasons, for it ' twas then that not only G. H. S. but the Senior class really shone. Our football squad under the captain-ship of Howard Simmons went far into the championship series, but was finally defeated by the Rocky Mount eleven. The football season being over, we threw ourselves with a vim into the round of basketball games and here again Goldsboro excelled, for this time we reached the Eastern semi-finals and bowed in defeat only to Durham, the last year ' s state champions. The day after that memorable game at Chapel Hill, the Seniors read with pride an article in The Tar Heel in which we found that Howard had been selected for the first all-state team, and Paul Gilliken had made the second. Though athletics filled a large part of our thoughts, we were careful to reserve room for our cherished project. Just Seniors, and much of our time during the fall months was spent in planning and working on it. Has it been worth while? We can all see for ourselves. When December came we realized it was up to us to have a Christmas pageant, for that had long been an established Senior custom. Determined to have one which would be a credit to us we set to work, and on the Friday before the Christmas holidays we gave m the auditorium m shadow pictures the scenes of the Nativity. When the holidays were over we came back to Goldsboro Hi to start on the last lap of our journey. The first obstacle which stared us in the face was exams. But time, which is the cure of all ills, passed rapidly and soon we could look back on them as nothing more than -a bad dream. A short while after this goes to press, the Seniors will begin work on a Senior play, the proceeds of which will go to help pay for Just Seniors. After our play is over we will have two more events to look forward to: one, the Junior-Senior Banquet; the other, commencement, when we shall sadly bid dear G. H. S. good-bye and each of us go out into the world to strive to reach the goal which he has set for himself. ■ Page 24}a- JUST SENIORS OH, dear, here I am in Paradise, arrived by the automobilcaccident route, due to the careless driving of EHzabeth Smith. BiUie Best and Bessie Barham made the journey with me. There has been an interval of twenty years since our arrival, and inasmuch as we will have to stay here an indefinite period of time, we have become interested in the fate of our G. H. S. classmates of 1926. We decided to appeal to Saint Peter, the Record Keeper, to grant us a peep into his big book which reveals the true fate of all mortals. Our wish was granted and this is what we read : George Dewey Thompson and his devout little wife, Sadie Lou, have become mission- aries and for the last six years have been trying to convert two heathens of long stand ing — Ruth Pate and Claudia Bradford. Dortch Langston is among the converts on their list. Edgar Simkins is singing in grand opera. He is a professional yodeler now touring the African coast. Sarah Langston is playing the part of Carmen in the same company. They have had the distinction of playing before the King and Queen of the Congo, Robert Zealy and Lucy Wise. The official press-agent of the company is Thomas Dorsey. Cynthia Daughtery is with Anna Pavlowa in her Russian Ballet and employs Mary Gardner and Alice Grantham for her personal maids. Elizabeth Smith lost her mind after running over ten people; Lula Hood, Pauline Edwards, Lela Mae Hobbs, Louise Latham, and Esther Norris were among her victims. Elizabeth is now in Sarah Falkener ' s sanatorium for the mentally sick, defacing every available spot with a " Safety First " placard. Claudia Irwin cannot enter here, for during the recent Florida exodus she has made millions selling " hot-dogs " at a dollar each in Coral Gables. Elizabeth Dewey helps Claudia advertise by doing " The Charleston " in front of the dog stand, thereby attracting innumerable tourists. Among the tourists who repor ted this were Robert Summerlin, David Grantham, Beulah Sadler, Louise Johnston, and Beulah Beale. Rosemond Latta and Annie Simmons are booked for the Lower Regions on account of their undying hatred for each other. Alice Musgrave is running a bus from the Isler Apartments to the High School in order to accommodate one of her admirers. Georgia Davis and Alice Slaughter have been endeavoring to transform themselves into mermaids in order that they may attract " Mullet " Armentrout. William Toler and Maude Fortson, feeling themselves kindred souls, married and have continued in the same rut all their lives. Ida Margoles, elected on the woman ' s ticket to the high office of Sheriff of Wayne County, with her deputies, Lola Stallings, Mildred Boyd, Mary McDonald, and Vivian Dawson, captured Elizabeth Spears ' s " still " in the Seven Springs section last week; now Fred Crowson and Edwin Crow are drier but wiser! ■4 Page 25 JUST SENIORS Marvin Sherard is now an inmate at " Dix Hill, " laboring under the hallucination that he invented the radio. Charlie Best is Marvin ' s guard at the asylum. Haywood Lynch and Fred Stallings are shoveling coal for the J. A. Vinson coal yard. Officer Simmons of the city police force called on Margaret Kornegay, Professor Hayne ' s cook. The ice ' man, Robert Isler, called at the same time, and being of a jealous temper- ament, split the law ' s arm with an ice pick. Margaret two ' timed both of them and married the elevator boy at the bank building, Rufus Batton. Virginia Kornegay has never married but is a sweet old maid. Sadie Harris, Physics teacher at G. H. S., has gone before Congress to appeal for an appropriation to enlarge the laboratory. She will surely get it, for there are two in- fluential congressmen from Goldsboro for it. Mr. Clarence Daniels will do the speaking, while Mr. Turner Stanley sits by and looks intelligent for both of them. Sarah Hill Moore, Gertrude Stith, and Fannie Willis are famous for their luxurious, raven locks. They are now in business together, manufacturing the compound with which they so skillfully deceived the public. Louise Thompson and Mary Spence sell the product in their exclusive accessory shop on Fifth Avenue. Just at this time our reading was interrupted, for Saint Peter was called to the Gate by an incessant knocking. Who should it be but Paul Gillikin, battered and scarred from his journey thru the hard, cruel world. Gladly we welcomed another 26 to Paradise. Paradise, 1946 Florence Johnson, Prophetess. •• Page 26 JUST SENIORS ILa t Will anb tKesitament WE, the members of the Senior Class of 1926, of the Goldsboro High School, realising that our end is drawing near and that soon we shall have to depart from this happy realm of Seniordom, do hereby draw up this our Last Will and Testament.

Gertrude Stith leaves her quiet manner to Margaret Morris. Cynthia Daughtery leaves her good nature to Forrest Kelly. May it be of great help during the next football season.

VJ eft — C The Junior- Senior Banquet A Poeiu of Hnman Promise Presented Around the Festive Board at The (Joldsboro Last Night. The annual banquet of the Junior- Senior classes of the Goldsboro High School was held in the spacious, beautiful and brilliantly lighted din- ing room of The Goldsboro last night, and in every feature was one of the most creditable and admirably ap- pointed and keenly enjoyable social functions our city has ever known. It was entirely informal— just an aggre- gation of companionable young folks — " just let loose from school, " as the poet Goldsmith says, for an evening of rollicking fuu and festivity, including a most sumptuous menu, served in courses and in The Goldsboro ' s char- acteristic elite style. Mr; Kenneth E. Kinlay, Jr., of the Junior class,- acted as Toastmaster, and in this role, as in any role he essays, he was equal to every emer- gency and the honking of his big " Claxion " was the signal from time to time that a new " stunt " was to be pulled off: and these were so nume- rous and so personal, that while they went all right around the festive board — between daily companions, who were likewise daily observers and doubtless " knew " — these " q iips " would not be so liilariously enjoyable in cold type— and so the Argus is " mum " : but, " O, boy! " they were wit- ty and briglit, crisp and clean as a new dollar. The faculty, too, was " fearlessly " dealt witli. and, in return, each of those of the faculty present, including Superintendent Hamilton, and handsome " Bill " Mahler, the con- genial and capable Principal, " took theirs " is fine spirit, and made some I very witty " come backs. " I There were more than 150 of the youth — the Juniors as hosts ' and the Seniors as guests — of the school, the promise and hope of the future, as- sembled around the banquet board and they thus presented a picture that for beauty, and character, and intellect, and purpose was a poem of human promise lit subject for a new epic fea- turing the virtue and value of public free school education. The evening ' s progi-am was regaled Vvith class .songs, sung in common, and . Ome very exhilarting renditions by che really fine High School Orchestra.

We met with many hardships As we crossed the bowling sea. We tried to calm the billows That dashed about in glee. S ' ometimes the sea was calm — ' Twas smooth as shining glass. ' Twas then that all our joy Gladly came to pass. Then again — the raging main Would sweep with angry fangs Across the bowsprit of our ship, From where the torn sail hangs. The angry wind howled and blew It lashed the sea to foam; But by our captain and our crew, We were guided safely home. Each crewsman on our Senior boat Did his duty feel. Some to the halyards — some to sails And the pilot to his wheel. The Captain never once did flinch With dangers all around. He shouted orders to us all — ■ We never went a ground. Through this angry sea of strife Our brave ship traveled on Until we found this promised land On which the bright sun shone. As we left this boat of hope A tear rolled down our cheek Yet we knew we must go on A higher thing to seek. — Marvin Sherard. Faculty Song V e will remember Mr. Hamilton When we ' re struggling on life ' s vvay We will think of him foiever And the things he use to say. Mr. Mahler we ' ve been thinking What a sad world this would be If all the civics were transported Far beyond the Northern sea. And Miss Nellie starts us thinking When she pops a dreadful test And that is just the very reason We have always liked her best. Latin is a dreadful subject That is what most people say With Mrs. Middleton for our teacher We ' ve enjoyed it every day. Oh, Miss Gordner, you have helped us With essays and our memory book And to find another like you " We would have to look and look. Miss Kornega - ' always helped us With our Juiiior-Sfenior play Now Ave wish to " Remercier elle " On this glad commencement day. Oh Miss Wheeler, we are thinking Of the good times had with you And when comes the time of parting We ' ll be terribly sad and blue. Calls came ringing from the S ' eniors Mr. Omer answered all He has always done his best now We are going to let him rest. Miss Hazelbaker we ' ve been thinking What a sad l;fe ours will be When we are gone and will not have you And your smiles and jollity. To Miss New we .give some onions To remember us by next year She ' s been faitbfuL dene her duty And stood by us like a friend. Every Wednesday in the chapel We helped Mr. Frederick sing It wasn ' t the new songs but the old songs That he always liked to sing. And Miss Powell we hate to lose you For we must now let you go " But we ' ll try out all our recipes That were given in your note book Goidsboro High School There ' s a song in the air Goidsboro High School You can hear it everywhere Goidsboro H ' igh S ' chool When at school or at home Any place you chance to roam Goidsboro, Goidsboro High School. CHORUS Then huri ' ah for our school Let us sing, let us sing And we ' re up with a cheer Let it ring, Let it ring! We ' ll be faitaful and true To our colors white and blue Goidsboro, Goidsboro High School. Tho ' we ' re mighty hard to beat Goidsboro High S ' chool Yet we bravely bear defeat Goidsboro H ' igh S ' chool We go forwar.d, yes we do And the cause is due to you Goidsboro, Goidsboro High School. Commencement Song Right joyfully we hail thee, O long expected day! Yet there ' s a tirill of sadness That will not pass away For autumn ' s golden weather No more for us will tell The hour of g-lad returning To scenes we ' ve loved so well. No more the good old friendships, No more the well-known ways, For us new paths must open, New duties fill our days But time can never alter Devotion tried and true, And Mem ' ry will make sweeter The joys that here we knew. So Class-mates, stand together. As heartily we raise. One loyal song ' at parting. In Alma Mater ' s praise. May fortune smile upon her. May men her name enthrone, And we forever cherish Her honor as cur own. REFRAIN Lift then your voices, clear and strong! Hope gilds the future ' s way; Love lights the past we ' ve known so long.
