M. Harris, Sr. We shall always appreciate your kind and benevolent consideration of our school, and we herewith offer our respect and affection. Page Two Meet the Gold-digger—a personality who is becoming widely known. Though he has never been seen, he has been with students and teachers ever since the day they entered Golston School. He is felt in every act of study and play and is a red-blood to the core. No idle dreamer, this little guy really gets around! He does his many jobs quietly and efficiently. He helped lay the corner¬ stone of the school building, the lunchroom, and just this year, a $30,000 gymnasium. He has at¬ tended all the classes and has ridden all the bus routes. He yelled his lungs out at every basket¬ ball game ancl ran on the court clad in new uniforms and jackets. He assisted with every issue of the “Hi-Lites”, helped remodel the library, sold ads for the “Gold-Stone” and participated in all student activities. And, once again, who is this guy, the Gold-Digger? He has been at once principal, teacher, student, and janitor of a small, but progressive high school. He is the living spirit of Goldston High School that has enabled it to serve this community for many years. GOLDSTON HIGH SCHOOL Goldston, North Carolina FACULTY Mr. G. P.

Pope Eight CLASS HISTORY It is haul to give the history of a class when so much still lies ahead of us. So far, we haven’t had much time to do things. We hope our history twenty-five years from now will be more worthy of your notice. We’ll begin at the beginning where all good stories should start. Most of us entered first grade a wee bit scared, but found it such a happy place that all our terrors disappeared. Then, from grade to grade we passed along, learning not only things from books but how to work and play together, to respect the rights of others, and to be good citizens in our school world. Then one exciting day, we entered high school with an enrollment of twenty-three. We began the year by electing to serve as our class officers Johnie Jean Dowdy, president; Andrew Barber, vice-president; Elma Wilkie, secretary-treasurer. Under the direction of Mrs. Francis Layland, things seemed to have gone very well for us. Then came our second year with Mr. Cullipher as our homeroom teacher. When we were finally settled, we found that we were lacking four of our classmates. We became very active in our Sophomore year. .Some joined the basketball teams; others played baseball and softball; still others were members of the glee club, the Student Council, and the cheering team. Our Junior year seemed to us a very trying one; but just before the Christmas holiday; we re¬ ceived a card bearing the information that our class rings were in the depot. We were an excited crowd of kids. Then came the .Junior-Senior banquet, which we had to struggle over, however, it seemed to us the last word in entertaining. Seven of us received letters for athletic activities. Our class leaders that year were Thelma Phillips, president; Helen Hart,, vice-president; Eunice Soots, secretary and treasurer; Wilma Rosser, room representative. Our Senior year in Goldston High is 1949. Two members of the class married during the sum¬ mer, but returned to finish their education. This year we elected Savannah Callicutt, president; John Thomas, vice-president; Andrew Bar¬ ber, secretary; Eunice Soots, treasurer. We chose as our flower the red rose and blue and white for our colors. Our motto is—“Sail on, the shore is just ahead.” Many exciting adventures lay before us during our Senior year. For many months, visions of the great Chowan River passed through our minds, and we could readily picture our Junior- Senior banquet. But above all this, we looked forward to our commencement for this was the time when we would leave Goldston School with much regret. We not only tried to do our work well, but we did other things decidedly worth while. We ap¬ proached our last exams with dignity and confidence, and we passed ’em. So having acquired a better education, we haven’t done so poorly, up to now. Pape Nine Last Will and Testament We, the class of 1949, in the town of Goldston, County of Chatham, and in the state of North Carolina, being ready to embark from this port into unknown seas, do hereby make this, our last will and testament. ARTICLE I Item 1. To Mr. Cullipher, our principal, we leave our gratitude for his understanding and good sportsmanship. Item 2. To the teachers, we leave thanks for their patience and a suggestion for making their lives easier: less difficult lessons, not so many tests, and fewer rules to be obeyed. Item 3. To the incoming Seniors, we leave our spotless reputation our air of importance and a vast store of ideas which we had neither time nor opportunity to use. Item 4. To the remaining students, we leave our fame and hope they won’t let it die by skidding too far beneath our achievements. ARTICLE II Last, we have a few individual bequest to make. Item 1. To Charles Barber, I, Andrew Barber, do leave my nerve. It never failed me and was a great help in time of trouble. Iteme 2. To Floyd Caviness who might have difficulty in passing tests, I, Thelma Phillips, do leave my cramming ability. Item 3. To Phillip Gaines, I, John Thomas, do leave some of my height. Item 4. To Bill Sipe, I, Howard McMillan, do leave my place in the Beta Club. Item 5. To Gilbert Oldham, I, Norman Oldham, do leave my bus. Item 6. To Angelette Oldham, I, Helen Hart, do leave my ability to play basketball. Item 7. To Billy Joe Harris, I, Norman Dowdy, do leave my quietness. Item 8. To Franklin Wilkins, I, Savannah Callicutt, do leave my ability to make excellent grades. Item 9. To Mack Phillips, I, J. C. Burke, do leave my artistic ability. Item 10. To Louise Hillard, I, Johnie Jean Stout, do leave some of my slimness. Item 11. To Frona Wilkie, I, Wilma Rosser, do leave some of my size. Item 12. To Sally Herron, I, Mary Alice Moses, do leave my blond hair. Item 13. To Edwin Elkins, I, Margaret Welch, do bequeath all the ambition I possessed with the hope that he will make good use of it by working hard at everything. Item 14. To Anne Marie Moses, I, Eunice Soots, do leave my position as editor of Goldston Hi- Lites. Item 15. To William Fields, I, Walter Jordan, do leave my agreeable disposition. Finally, we name as the sole executor of this will Mrs. E. W. Byerly in whom we have every confidence. Signed: The Senior Class of 1949 Andrew Barber, Testator Page Ten MASCOTS Jimmy McMillan and Linda Hart CLASS POEM MEMORIES Dear Senior Class of Forty-Nine We know the time is finally here To say good-bye to Goldston High And to our friends we love so dear. With gratitude we turn to you Who brought us thus far on our way And helped to guide our first voyage Safely into this port today. To you who gave us friendly aid Though we were young and sore afraid Always in our hearts there will be, A sense of love and loyalty. The sea of life may not be easy, And we may find many doubts and feai Rut with faith in the Hand Divine, We can face our tasks through the year- And as we sail this sea of life To face our problems day by day. Memories will return to our school And those who charted us our way. Class Poet Eunice Mae Soots PROPHECY As I sit on my yacht sailing along the sea of memories in the year 1974, I gaze into the briny waters and see my classmates of 1949. At first the images are vague, but gradually they begin to take shape. Johnie Jean Stout, who was married before school was out, is happily settled in Goldston with several little “shorties.” In the very heart of Goldston, I see Howard McMillan. He is now the dignified ownei of the Goldston Subway Lines, powered by atomic energy. I see Polly Moses, helpless and shy. She looks like a mariner adrift and surrounded by hungry sharks. As I look again, she is calm, composed, self-assured, if not bossy. She is now an efficiency expert in Goldston High School. She tells the teachers how to run things, and she’s doing a good job, too. Ah! Now I plainly see the outskirts of Goldston where a middleaged woman is sitting by the fireplace with several small children. As I see the woman’s face, I find that it is Margai et elch. A sawmill is running in the midst of a great forest, and Norman Oldham is loading a truck with lumber to be taken to his planer-mill in Carbonton. Wilma Rosser, hairdresser in a Sanford beauty shop, is giving one of her fifteen minute permanents. She now owns a chain of beauty parlors from Maine to Florida. John Thomas is now proprietor of one of Sanford’s leading helicopter stores. He was always up in the air anyway, so he decided to make it his life work. Thelma Phillips, who always wanted to be up in the air too, is an airline hostess. It was very painful when I looked at Helen Hart. Pretty? Yes! Plump? Oh! No! Not plump, just plain fat! She has been eating like a starving python for 25 years. It ' s yards around her. Poor thing! She’s the victim of circumference. Another image forms and I see Andrew Barber, who is now making wise-cracks on the Three- Guesses programme ' s the director of one of those quiz programs on the radio. He makes up his own questions and he certainly has people guessing. Some of his questions he can’t answer himself. I ban see into a spacious office where Eunice Mae Soots is typing off insurance reports for her brother who is now President of Atlantic Life Insurance Company. In a great laboratory, a scientist is at work over what seems to be some sort of atomic energy project. He is the classmate who was voted most likely to succeed, Norman Dowdy. Savannah Callicutt is writing movie serials—the kind in which the heroine is left dangling from an eleventh story window by her eyelids, and streaming out to sea like a pennant when the wind blows. Walter Jordan is now a successful scientific farmer near Raleigh, North Carolina. He recently won national honors for perfecting a special breed of yellow hybrid corn that will grow the year round in any part of the world. Oh! No! I can see myself with nothing to do but sit back and paint pretty girls’ pictures. Since I couldn’t get one for myself, 1 had to learn to paint their pictures so I could spend my time looking at them. J. C. Burke, Jr., Prophet.

It is an organization that governs all the other clubs and takes part in many activities. It has done much for the school and has helped to make it one of the best schools in the county. This club has sponsored cleaning campaigns to keep the school looking attractive and it has put on plays to raise money for things that are necessary for the school. All the members of this club work in unison for the benefit of the school and outstanding pro¬ gress has been made.

BETA CLUB During the last few years the Beta Club has played an important role in Goldston School. Beta students have been outstanding in many activities. The qualifications for membership are: good mentality and character, creditable achievement, and commendable attitude. The purpose of this organization is to promote the ideals of honesty, service and leadership among the high-school students, to reward meritorious achievement, and to encourage and as¬ sist students to continue their education after high-school graduation. There are numerous activities in which the Beta students can enter and help the school. Among these are to improve the general school program, to create better school environment and bet¬ ter school spirit, to keep classrooms and school premises clean and attractive, to raise funds for improving school equipment, to improve scholarship, to raise standards of personal conduct, and to assist in various school projects. The motto of the Beta Club is, “Ducanmus aliis serviendo”—Let us lead by serving others. The Beta Club is surely a goal to be striven for by every student in high-school , for it is one of the greatest honors one can achieve. Page Thirty-Three BUS DRIVERS Fall rains, winter snows, icy roads, slushy, red mud, overflowing creeks, flat tires and empty gas tanks play a major role in the life of a school bus driver. The five at Goldston High—Billy Joe Harris, Norman Oldham, Helen Hart, Andrew Barber and Elbert Pilkington—know what to expect from the elements during the intervening nine months. It’s no fun leaving home at 6:55 on cold December mornings in a chilly bus to cope with “Coun¬ try roads and to be responsible for the lives of 50 to 65 children twice a day. The physical and mental strain of such a task is no small matter. Helen Hart provided a unique incident in school history when she became Goldston’s first girl bus driver. Setting a record for her successors, she made four trips daily without any seri¬ ous mishap. So, it’s hats off to you, Bus-drivers! Few people realize what an essential part you play in a school where over three-fourths of the pupils depend on a school bus for an education.

Burke (Captain), Mary Alice Moses, Wilma Rosser (Lieutenant), Mack Phillips. This group had many responsible duties. It kept pupils in line while buses were loading, assisted pupils to find seats on the buses and helped maintain order when the buses were in motion. The town members cautioned pupils to walk on the right side of the road. This year each mem¬ ber was given a badge, a cap and a belt.

The 4-H Club is one of the most worthy organization in school. Since its main purpose is to train school boys and girls in Farm—and—Home life, it is considered one of the most impor¬ tant clubs in the state. Because of its many projects, a great majority of boys and girls have be¬ come interested in this club. These boys and girls have high ideals, high standards and, above all, they serve.

According to the State Board of Health, it is a grade A cafeteria. Page Thirty-Nine GYMNASIUM The new gymnasium is now an important spot in this community. Having a large playing floor with plenty of seating capacity, good lighting, adequate locker rooms, and a $5,000 heating plant, it has provided recreation and plenty of excitement for both the young and old during this school year. Besides the regular scheduled games for the school teams and Home teams, the local Lions Club sponsored the first basketball tournament to be held here. This event drew 22 teams to Goldston from 9 counties. The annual Chatham County High School Tourney was held here the first week ' of March. Because this community wanted a gymnasium, practically everyone pitched in to get this struc¬ ture built. Page Forty-One CHEERLEADERS If any students possessed true school spirit this year, they were these eight cheerleaders— Isabelle Campbell, Sara Jane Fields, Thelma Phillips, Chief; Lois Mashburn, Mary Ruth Fields, Angelette Oldham, Josephine Gaines, and Lillie Mae Hutchins. Dashing out on the court during every “time out” in a basketball game, their bright, happy smiles never waned until the final whistle, for their knowledge of school cheers seemed limit¬ less. The cheerleaders in full gold skirts and maroon sweaters added a gay touch of color to our athletic contests. Their untiring efforts, their unselfishness in devoting their time to hours of hard practice, their faithful appearance at every game undoubtedly influenced the outcome of many games in which Goldston emerged victorious. The “Rah! Rah! Gold-diggers! Rah!” of our present cheering squad will echo through our school annals in future years and be an incentive to those who will don the cheerleaders’ ma¬ roon and gold during the coming seasons.
