We have come so soon to the parting of ways. But fond memories of Mills High School we shall always keep. As far into our future lives we reach. For many days of happiness we ' ve spent together here. Days we shall remember and hold so dear. We will climb onward to the highest peaks. While for. success we daily seek; And when we reach the heights sublime. We shall look backward on our climb. With voices loud we shall praise, The teachers of our post school days. True sons and daughters we shall be In this land of hope and prosperity. A hope for everlasting peace Where righteousness will never cease. We shall share earth ' s riches from day to day. And for a better world we ' ll pray. We hove come to the end of a perfect day. Goodbye to you, dear friend we must soy; For the tie that binds us nothing con sever. Though now we feel a touch of sorrow. We shall meet again, perhaps tomorrow. Here ' s to Mills High School faithful and bold. Here ' s to her colors of blue and old gold. The blue for truth shall ever be. While the gold shall stand for loyalty. We shall praise her name wherever we go. Our love for her we shall always show. OLir school in all her glory stands To drive the darkness from our land. Mills High School! The dearest, fairest, The noblest, and the best- May God above protect you And your future years be blessed. FAYE HUDSON, Class Poetess Class PpophecL) Palm Street Silver Springs, Florida November 29, 1961 Dear Janet: I was terribly disappointed when I received your letter telling me that you would be unable to accept my invitation to the Class of ' 52 Reunion, I had looked forward to seeing you because it has been eight years since we saw each other. The reunion was really a success. All our classmates came, and we had a wonderful time talking about the happy days we spent in school. All our teach- ers came too except Mrs. Jolly. She was unable to attend because she and her six-year-old son. King, were visiting relatives in England. It has been a long time since we were Seniors in high school, but it seems like only yesterday when we walked down the aisle on graduation night. Re- member how proud we were? Since you were unable to attend the reunion, I thought that you would be interested to know what each of our classmates has been doing since we gradu- ated. MRS. W. D. JACKSON, our Senior Advisor, has resigned from that position. In 1954 she bought Bob Melton ' s Barbecue business and is now a prosperous business woman, averaging $15,000 per week. BOB ASHLEY, the outstanding Algebra student of our class, has taken over the Math Department at Louisburg College. ROSALYN SMITH is private secretary for JOHN A. KNOTT, who is a wealthy business man, owning several tobacco warehouses. After graduating from a business school FAYE HUDSON became the happy wife of the owner of the Cardwell Lumber Company, located in Virginia. DR. HAROLD JACKSON ROBBINS has made definite plans to send a rocket to the moon. He won world fame last year when he proved that human life does not exist on Mars. Working with Dr. Robbins is ROBERT HARRIS, a former class- mate. CHARLES W. STROTHER became a famous sports announcer. In his spare time he teaches dancing, his favorite pastime since childhood. ROBERT FRAZIER recently married his high school sweetheart and is the president of the Remington Typewriter Company. PHILIP " SATCH " MOORE is now the understudy of Huntz Hall, one of the Bowery Boys. He has already starred in several successful movies. DOW PERRY and Philip see each other often. Dow, with his whistling ability acquired in the halls of Mills High School, now plays the role of " The Whistler. " Mrs. Bailey retired from teaching school and became his manugtr and director. GEORGE BUNN, who played third base on our school baseball team, is now playing professional ball with the New York Yankees. Class PpophecL) MARTHA STONE is now living in New York City. She has a private swimming pool and is taking swimming lessons from Esther Williams. BARBARA DAVIS is doing fine as stenographer for a very handsome boss. The office grapevine has it that Barbara and boss will soon be Mr. and Boss. Remember the vacant lot located beside Taylor ' s Furniture Store when we were Seniors? Today a large department store, owned by GARLAND GREEN, occupies the lot. It was constructed by JERRY WILLIAMS who is a well known engineer for a construction company. ROSA MEDLIN graduated from Watt ' s School of Nursing and is now the head nurse there. KAY SHEARON became a famous song writer. She is living in New York and writes the lyrics for Broadway musicals. ALICE DENNIS is now a famous writer, having begun her career in writing the words to our class song. Her latest book is, " What A Cot ' s Eye Has To Do With A Cat. " MARTHA ANN PERDUE, a graduate of Duke University, is teaching Bible in W. R. Mills High School. MATTIE MOON has opened a bakery in Louisburg and is noted for her delicious moon pies. DONALD DAVIS became a traveling salesman soon after graduation. Among the many products he sells is a book on " How To Deal With Mischievous Boys. " After marrying a rich doctor, JEAN WRENN is rearing her own basketball team. Before her marriage she assisted Carl A. Mills in the Math Department at Mills High School. BEN A. GUPTON is now a retired millionaire living on a vast estate in Florida. He became a millionaire after inventing the school desk which folds into a bed when a button is pushed. JAMES A. WHELESS is still the dependable boy that he was in high school. He will be the last to let us down. He is living in Louisburg and is known as the " friendly undertaker. " Janet, everyone asked about you. Of course, I told them that you were liv- ing in Germany with your husband who is a five-star general in the United States Army. My address has been changed since I lost saw you. I have been living in Florida for twelve months, directing a swimming pageant. I trust this finds you and yours well and happy. Take care of your prett self and be sure tb look me up when you are in the States again. A Classmate of 1952, Dolores Cosh Jones ass IlistorL) 1940-1952. What a long period of hope, work, and joy these dates enclose! For it was in the fall of 1940 that we, the seniors of 1952, first started to school. We were, to say the least, a bit dismayed at this new life with a few hours away from home each day, but after a few days, we became accustomed to school. Gradually, the years passed and we found ourselves taking another big step— entering high school. It was in the fall of 1948 that we entered high school. Mr. Calvin White was our home room teacher, and the thrill of changing classes was ours at last. As it was customary to elect class officers, we elected Dow Perry as president; Franklin Herman, vice-president; Faye Hudson, secretary; Jean Wrenn, treasurer. The year passed quickly, and we found we had completed our first year in high school very successfully. Soon it was fall again, and we were sophomores. Mrs. Bailey was our home room teacher, and our class officers were as follows: Faye Hudson, president; Dow Perry, vice-president; Dolores Cosh, secretary; Martha Ann Perdue, treasurer. This was a very eventful year for us. We knew that it was time to start making money for the remaining years in high school, so we sponsored dances at the Armory after all the home basketball games. The summer breezed by, and it was time for school to start again. Mrs. W. M. Jolly was our home room teacher. We elected Robert Frazier as our president; Jerry Williams, vice-president; Rosalyn Smith, secretary; C. W. Strother, treasurer. We immediately began to think about the banquet that we were to give in the spring, and we were determined to give the seniors the finest banquet possible. While in the midst of making plans for the banquet, we received our treasured class rings; and in May, we honored our upperclassmen at a very fine banquet given at the Woman ' s Club in Raleigh. To our amazement, there we were— seniors. We were the ones to set all the examples for those below us. Mrs. W. D. Jackson was our home room teacher, and it really took a lot of hard work to fulfill our many plans for that year. Of course, we began to think about the trip to Washington which is taken annually by the senior class, but there was something else in the back of our minds that just had to come out. We wanted our school to have an annual. Realizing the great task before us, we went to work. Two of our main money-raising projects were selling Christmas cards and giving barbecues. These projects were remunerative to the extent that our trip to Washington and our annual were almost paid for. Finally, in the spring of 1952, we proudly presented THE CIRCLE. Now that we are graduates of the William Robert Mills School, we realize that the happiest days of our lives were spent there. Friendships were made there that did not end with the completion of high school, and we hope that we shall forever justify the faith which our teachers placed in us.
