So live, that when thy summons comes to join The innumerable caravan, which moves To that mysterious realm, where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death, Thou go not, like the quarry slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave, Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams. W. C. B. This yearbook gives a glimpse of the wonderful happenings and activities at Luther Jackson High School. During the years we have gained both know¬ ledge and some degree of emotional maturity. We have absorbed a great deal of subject matter; but, more important, we have gained a deeper understand¬ ing of our fellow human beings. For this we are grateful to our teachers, who, besides teaching facts, helped to develop character. We know as we grow older we will fully realize how much we have been given. Now we invite you to turn the pages of our yearbook and gain an insight of the wonderful happenings at our school.

Only a short time ago we were eighth-graders looking with apprehension and hesitation toward the years ahead of us. Today, in reality, we have accomplished our aim - the completion of high school. September of 1954, a great excitement took place in the lives of the 138 bewildered and frustrated 8th grade students of Luther Jackson High. On the opening of school, we were asked to assemble in the auditorium where we listened to a welcome and a pep talk; then our names were called by different teachers who were to be our homeroom sponsors. The newness soon wore off and we were back to hard work - core and ex¬ ploratory courses. During the eighth grade year many of us were able to participate in numerous activities because of the newness of the school. Among the activities in which we participated were band, choir, and patrol. In the ninth grade many changes took place in our school lives. The class schedule of fifty-five minutes gave us much concern at first, but we finally found ourselves moving along with the more experienced members of the school. We participated in many of the activities and excelled in some, but our greatest ordeal was to try to live down the idea of being freshmen. The Sophomore year finally arrived with some new faces and many disappointments in not seeing all of our old friends and classmates of the previous years, but as time passed we made new friends and tried to cultivate stronger ties with many of our old ones. This year also brought out many of the latent talents and ambitions of our class. In the athletic world James Edgerton and Tracy Newman participated in football; in baseball Albert Brown, Tracy Newman, Joe Brown, James Edgerton, Robert Brooks, and Richard Washington; in basketball many boys made the Junior Varsity team. On the Girls’ Basketball Team we found Bertha Thornton, Joan Smith, Rose Rector, Norma Jackson and Judy Hudson. In the academic world we also made some achievements. Bessie Summers won first place in the District Chemistry Quiz; Earnestine Williams became our N. H. A. Represen¬ tative to the Virginia State conference, and Alvin Thomas participated in the State Science and Math conference. The Junior year arrived with the enrollment of 35 boys and 35 girls. This year proved to be quite fruitful with greater emphasis on study and school life. The great¬ est event of the year was the preparation and sponsoring of the Junior-Senior Prom. The final year of high school began September 6, 1958 with an enrollment of 27 boys and 24 girls. Of this number, 24 of the boys began with the original 8th grade class of 70, and 19 of the girls enrolled were of the beginning class of 68. In this annual can be found many of the outstanding activities and achievements of the Senior Class. May the few things said and done here be ever memorable in the hearts and minds of this graduating class, and may they be stepping stones to greater things in life.

President WHAT IS THE REAL PURPOSE OF THE STUDENT COUNCIL? A student Council is organized, maintained, and exists individually and collectively because is is ready, willing, and able to serve! Serve whom? A council serves its school, community, nation, and world. How does a council proceed to serve? First it organizes its constitution. It defines its areas of operation by considering its limitations and its sphere of influence. The council is not the end but rather it is a means to an end. Having defined its area of operation, the council is ready to look for service opportunities. You cannot solve a problem or serve as such unless you are well aware that there is a problem or that there is an opportunity for service. If you are aware of the problem or area of service and are able to handle it, you (council) are ready to serve! What are the possibilities of a council for service? If your eyes, ears, and heart are in tune with the problems and areas of service, you will find many opportunities. Therefore, take stock and look over the areas. Start with a service that you can perform with success! If we would serve, we must develop excellent public relations, parliamentary procedures, specific aims and objectives, a feeling of oneness, be lost in the course of service, and constantly evaluate ourselves as a council. Remember, what you and your council are, your service becomes! The National Honor Society, a national high school or¬ ganization, gives recognition to outstanding students on the basis of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character and encourages the exploration and development of these qualities. The chief function of the chapter is to sponsor some activity of service to the school or community. The Luther Jackson Chapter was formed in 1954. Installation ceremonies are per¬ formed in the fall and new candidates from the Junior, Senior and Sophomore classes, chosen by members of the faculty, are inducted.

Last Will and Testament We, the Class of 1959, of the Luther Jackson High School, Merrifield, State of Virginia, in forty-nine individuals and distinct parts, being about to pass out of this sphere of education, in full possession of a crammed mind, well trained memory, and almost superhuman understanding, do make and publish this, our last will and testament, hereby revoking and making void all former wills or promises by us at any time heretofore made, or mayhap, carelessly spoken, one to the other as a thoughtless wish of an idle hour. As to such estate as it has pleased the Fate and our own strong hands and brains to win for us, we do dispose of the same as follows: We give and bequeath to our beloved principal, Mr. T. M. Williams, our sincere affection, our deepest reverence, and, heartiest gratitude, and the whole and limited wealth of our eternal memory. In an attempt at partial payment for all that he has done for us during our long years at Luther Jackson, we make over to him here and now a heavy mortgage on our future in the great unknown beyond. We give and bequeath to Luther Jackson High, as a whole, the dear old School Spirit that has led us upward and forward to perfection. This Spirit is to become the possession of this school on condition that it shall be ever kept in constant use and be inoculated and instilled in the hearts and minds of every new member. We give and bequeath to our beloved faculty all the amazing knowled ge and startling information that we have furnished them from time to time in our various examinations. If the faculty sees fit, they are hereby authorized to give out such of this information to the world as they may feel the world is ready to receive. To our beloved homeroom teacher, Mr. Lawson, the profound admiration and ever enduring friendship of the class of 1958-59. Geneva Metcalf and Claudia Gaskins leave their ability to sing to Dianne Mercer and Jean Smith. Albert Brown leaves his oratorical ability to Robert Wright. Paul Sheppard, Lynwood Hyden, Robert Duncan, Franklin Bush, Albert Brown, and Tracy Newman leave their football abilities to the team of 1960. Richard Wall leaves his drum major skill to Robert Brent. Bertha Thornton leaves her doughnut salesmanship to Mildred Chapman. Earnestine Williams leaves her N. H. A. district office to Doris Johnson. Jervy Barnes leaves his quietness to Haney Pearson. To Elaina Taylor we leave the shyness of Rosalind Carter. Alvin Thomas leaves his Math ability to Leonard Lee. Norcie Grooms leaves her weight to the slimmest girl in the class of 1961. Ludlow Adams leaves his height to any short soul who desires to be tall.

In witness whereof, We, the Class of 1959, the testators, have to this our will, written on one sheet of parchment, set our hands and seal this fifth day of June, Anno Domini, one thousand nine hundred and fifty-nine.
