Jhe Jiqen Pmtod i By Tfifi QemM Luih i Jajck oiv QckooH VUguuO We, the class of 1958, have tried to make an annua which would present our school as you would like to re¬ member it — In years to come may you turn through these pages and recall the happy months at L.J.H.S. Time marches on! We Point with Pnide to oun Adminiatnation 3aculty, Seniona, Sjp.on.ta, ■fIctivitiea Claaaea Dedication To teachers—everywhere; but, especially to the teachers of Fairfax County, and most assuredly the teachers of Luther Jackson High School, we dedicate this issue of tho ' 1 958 Tiger. We realize that it has been only through your guidance, pati¬ ence, and teaching that we have reached this milestone of our lives, and as we turn our thoughts to the future, we leave happy memories of teachers who have helpaa us along the way. — A Teacher ' s Creed — I believe in boys and girls, the men and women of a great tomorrow; that whatsoever the boy soweth the man shall reap. I believe in the curse of ignorance; in the efficacy of schools; in the dignity of teaching; and in the joy of serving others.... I believe in wisdom as revealed in human lives as well as in the pages of the printed book; in lessons taught, not so much by precept as by example;. . . I believe in beauty in the schoolroom, in the home, in daily life. . . I believe in laughter, in love, in faith, in all ideals and distant hopes that lure us on. I believe in the present and its opportunities; in the future and its promises, and in the divine joy of living.. .. Principal ' YYleznaqe Dear Seniors of the Class of 1958, I wish to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the seniors and sponsor for the outstanding job you have done to make this annual a successful and worthwhile project. This annual will serve as a book of past accomplishments and memories. I feel con¬ fident that it will be one of your most cherished possessions. Congratulations for the accomplishments you have made thus far. I am sure you will strive to be a credit to your school and your¬ self by using the training you have received wisely, and as you go out into rhe world, remember that no person was ever honored for what he received; honor was rhe reward for what ne gave. May your future be so planned and managed that the important experiences of your life will bring you both honor and success. Si ncerel y. Taylor M.

During the year 1953-54, we as a class visited Bull Run Battlefield and Museum . The enjoyment we had couldn ' t have been if it weren ' t for our wonderful Eighth Grade Sponsors, Mr. Morris Samuel, and Mrs. Barnes. We shared the pride of all the Negro citizens of Fairfax County in the new high school in which we enrolled as its first Freshman Class in September, 1954 - The class ' s competitive spirit was greatly stimulated during our Fresh¬ man Year. Evidences were exhibited when Homeroom 9-1, Sponsored by Mrs. L. M. Brown, won the Miss Homecoming contest of ' 54, supporting Miss Wilma Harrod. Miss Merle Williams, also of the Freshman Class was honored with the title of Miss Basketball of ' 54 . We the sophomores of ' 55 presented a Valentine Ball which was a formal affair for all students, teachers, and parents who had the price of a ticket. For many of us, this was our first time to dress-up in silver slippers, evening dresses, and tuxedos. Because of the wonderful cooperation of the class it was a real success. The experience gained by presenting the Valentine Ball enabled us, as a Junior Class to present an even more successful Junior-Senior Prorb. With the assistance of two grand sponsors, Mr. Harold Lawson, and Mrs. H. Hemby, we accomplished all that any Junior Class could hope to. Now we are Seniors and anxiously awaiting the feel of a high school diploma in our hands. For all of us, this will certainly be a new way of life- college, a career, or marriage. . . Whatever the future, we are looking forward with great enthusiasm upon entering the world as young adults. 20 Clem Will We, the graduating class of 1958, of Luther Jackson High School, Fairfax County, State of Virginia, do hereby make public, and declare this to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking any bequests made by other classes heretofore. We e members of the class bequeath our estate to the following: To the principal, Mr. Williams, and our teachers we leave our love, and grate¬ fulness, and appreciation for all they have done in bringing us thus far in our educa¬ tional career. To the Juniors, we leave our senior dignity, soiled books, our seats in the left- hand-side of the auditorium with the hope that they enjoy their senior year as much as we did. To our friends the Sophomores, we bequeath our eagerness and willingness to learn. To our good friends the Freshmen we will our ability to receive passing grades, and to be obedient to the teachers. We as individuals of the Senior Class bequeath the following: DICK HOUSTON wills Bus 97 to Shot Gun Wicks. BILLY SMITH wills his ability to play basketball to Franklin Bush. LAWRENCE NEWMAN wills his Government book to Paul Sheppard in hope that he will do much better than he. JOSEPHINE CHASE wills her ability to write Shorthand to Marguarite Brown. ROBERT DYKES wills his typewriter in Room 15 to Addison Wells in hope that he will someday receive a Certificate of Merit for typing 60-words per minute. CAROLYN LEWIS leave? her keen flirtatiousness to her devoted sister, Harolyn. BILL JACKSON wills his athletic ability to Mr. Bell with the hope that next year ' s football team will win more games than this year ' s. RONALD WINGER leaves his long list of absentees to Leslie Meadows. LARRY COATES leaves his good looks to all the unfortunate boys at L. J. H.S. JO ANN BOOKER wills her ability to do bookkeeping to Earnestine Williams with the hope that she will be able to pass the course next year. MARY GROOMS leaves all of her dresses to Collida Jordan; hoping that she will be able to make the necessary alterations in order to use them. 21 ur time has come e’ e stoo our thanks to you.
