Jackson Mrs. Betty H. Denmark AT MILLS HIGH SCHOOL (yar ( m i After sharpening many pencils, using miles and miles of paper, and marking off thousands of inches with numerous rulers, we have finally completed your annual. As your graduation draws near and you try to recall the years of study and fun with your . , . classmates, the past will be revealed to you through this, the Circle of nineteen-hundred and fifty- eight. We, the Senior Class of 1958 hope that each of you will be pleased with the results. Contents Administration Classes Activities Athletics Snapshots Advertisements AND SURROUNDING US IS THE CONSTANT! REMINDER OF THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE OURS Dedicated To Earl Teague Justice, the staff of 1958 proudly dedicates this edition of the Circle . Throughhis love of music, nobility of character, and time unselfishly devoted to William Robert Mills School and its student body, he has given each of us a finer appreciation of music and of high school life. What is the duty of today ' s school? To provide an opportunity for each boy and girl to develop their moral, spiritual, educational and physi- cal qualities to the best of their ability. What is the duty of today ' s student? To so adjust themselves that upon the completion of their formal education they will be considered an asset to their environment. High school and college graduates step into a world so fierce with competition that only the fully adjusted individual will improve his society. There is no end to the achievements that a graduate of today ' s high school can attain. His oppor- tunities are limitless; his chances are endless; but in order to meet the challenge, there must be a concerted effort on the part of the indi- vidual to build his educational foundation on solid rock and lay his brick up the ladder of education with his ultimate goal in mind.

Article II To our school we leave the names and drawings which our hands have accumulated on its surface, hoping that it can withstand more damage in the future to be a home of education. Article III To Mr. Stalling s, our principal, we leave the hope that the intercom, will be a success and will prove its usefulness in the future years. To our home room teacher. Mrs. Jackson, who has been like a mother to us, we leave our thanks and gratitude for making our last year a pleasant one and for teaching us to act with dignity. To Mrs. Bartholomew we leave the hope that her next Senior Class will dig Beowulf and MacBeth. To Mrs. Bailey we leave a map of France with all places of interest on it clearly marked so that when she makes her trip to France she will know her way around. To Mrs. Denmark we leave the hope that her chemis- try and physics classes will be more interesting and less trouble in the future. To Mr. Justice we leave a request that he reserve seats for us for his first performance at Carnegie Hall when his band reaches the height of its success. Article IV To the Juniors we leave the honor and the Privileges (if they can be found) of being Seniors, and the hope that they will enjoy the top position as much as we have. To the Sophomores we leave the many opportunities for achievement which we have failed to take advantage of. To the Freshmen we leave dignity and maturity, that they may go forth as Sophomores of distinction. Article V During our years in high school, we have accumulated some well-known articles which we should like to bestow upon specific underclassmen. They are as follows: Page Allen leaves her height to Frances Kee Wheless. Jean Baker leaves her sewing ability to Judy Denton. Judy Catlett leaves her male admirers to Lucy Elam. Jane Eagles leaves a little of her love for Louisburg College to Margaret Beck. She is going to keep a whole lot of it with her. Margie Fuller leaves her job at ringing the bell to anyone who is always on time. Kay Hayes leaves her ability to go " steady " through high school to Betty Atkins. Janice Joyner leaves her ability to get a man and keep him to Allen Richardson. Peggie Joyner leaves her ability to play guard, for- ward, and still keep the bench warm to Clarice Joyner. Peggy Land leaves her ability to have a happy marri- age, while continuing her education to anyone planning to get married soon. Frances Peoples leaves her ability to be quiet to Mary Charles Hunt. Shirley May leaves her good looks to anyone who is in desperate need of them. BettyReames leaves her flirty ways to Libby Peoples. Peggy Tomlinson leaves her musical ability to Hannah Sykes. JeanWilliams leaves her best-all-round personality to Barbara Catlette. Shirley Williams leaves her wit to Trudy Anderson. Bob Alston leaves his height to Stacy Finch, with the hope that it will help him on the basketball team. Jack Avent leaves his writing ability to anyone who can read it, Tom Cooke leaves his ability to study to Billy O ' Neal. Gerald Edwards, having struggled to the top, is happy to just leave. Tommy Harris leaves his naturally curly hair to Jack Stone. Hartwell Newton leaves his tremendous size to Jim Leonard. Arthur Medlin leaves his ability to tell jokes to any- one who has a good memory. Darrell Wilson leaves his mischievous ways to Herbert Beasley. Richard Southerland 1 e a V e s his manly whiskers to Jack Drewett. I, Ronald Phelps, as a member of the Trooper Club, leave my Trooper hat to Peter Allen. In witness hereof, we the Senior Class of 1958, do set seal to this, our last will and t e s t a m e n t , on this graduation day, in the year of our Lord, Nineteen Hundred and Fifty- Eight. Ronald Phelps Testator Witnesses : MacBeth Geoffrey Chaucer Dennis the Menace 18 Class Prophecy I run a small typewriter repair shop in Ashe- ville, N. C. My tools or weapons--a screw driver, a pair of pliers, and a can of 3-in-l machine oil-- seem to be very unusual to most people. The other day as I finished working on a typewriter, I poured the usual coat of the 3 -in- 1 machine oil on the moving parts, and, much to my surprise, the typewriter began to type. I shouted " hallelujah! " when I saw it was spelling every word exactly right. Then I sat down to see what it was typing. Here is the paper that came out of the typewriter: Jane Eagles, a record enthusiast back in her high school days, is now the disc jockey on the " Ling-Ting-Tom " Juke Box on station SWAK in Hong Kong. Her theme song? Unchained Melody, of course ! Peggy Land love s mar ried life so much, she and her husband now run the largest motel in Florida at which couples who have been married over fifty years may stay overnight free of charge. Shirley May, the nurse of our class of 1958, has at last reachedthe stage of using human guinea pigs as targets for her h y p o d e r m i c needle -throwing practice. Jack Avent, who was always constructing some- thing in high school, has just finished his third robot. He is naming this one Harry; the first two were Tom and Dick. Arthur Medlin is now the top scientist on the " If-Y o u -Get-to-Outer-Space-before-l-Do " Board. Janice Joyner is a member of the Metropolitian Opera. She says she trainedher voice when she was a cheerleader for dear old Mills High. Jean Baker, a home economist, has finally trap- ped her man. As the old saying goes-- " The way to a man ' s heart is through his stomach! " Shirley Williams, class comedienne, has taken Martha Raye ' s place on television Jean W i 1 1 i a m s grew so fond of Pope ' s Dime Store while working there that she fell in love with the owner ' s son. Yep, you guessed it! She is the owner ' s daughter-in-law now! Ronald Phelps has at last reached his goal-- pretty girls and more pretty girls. Ronald is the owner of the RKO Studios in Hollywood. Betty Reames just invented a mechanical brain that does all of a student ' s homework. The student just feeds the books to the machine and attends to more interesting matters while the brain does the homework. Bob Alston has taken over his father ' s service station on South Main Street in Louisburg, N. C. Kay Hayes, because of her love for chemistry, has taken Mr. Pruitt ' s place in the science depart- ment at Louisburg College. Peggy Tomlinson is head of the music depart- ment at Wake Forest College. Hartwell Newton owns the Lazy HN Ranch which extends from the Green Hill Country Club to Jones ' Saloon in Bunn. Page Allen runs a ladies ' apparel shop in the Bronx, New York. She sells the most widely used clothes in the country. Margie Fuller now rings the bell to call her fellow members of the Old Maid Club to dinner. Frances Peoples has reached the peak of her ambition--a $1,000 per week salary as an airline stewardess for the Alert-Moulton Airlines. Peggie Joyner, our French ace, has finally given up on the Frenchmen and married a tall, bow-legged Texan after being convinced that Dallas has its good points as well as Paris. Tommy Harris is the third richest man in the United States. On the stingy list he ' s tops, also. Instead of walking around with six real cigars in his coat pocket, he substitutes three candy cigarettes. Darrell Wilson is the head of the agriculture department at the only university in Lower Slobovia. Richard Southerland is chief " grease monkey " at the Bickett Boulevard ESSO Service Station. Judy Catlette is the highest paid actress of the current season. Her contract is, of course, with RKO Studios owned by Ronald Phelps. Gerald Edwards just bought Radio Center from the Rockefellers. At the present time he is dying to get his hands on the Empire State Building. This is the conclusion of the Paper and with its conclusion, I closed my typewriter that could type under its own power and spell every word correctly, and I had 1 e a r n e d what each of my never-to-be- forgotten classmates of the Class of 1958 was doing! Class Prophet, Tom Cooke 19 Class History We, the class of 1958, entered William Robert Mills School in the fall of 1946. During the eight year s of elementary school we were given excellent care and guidance by our teachers and parents in preparation for enrollment in high school. In the fall of 1954, forty-eight promising fresh- men entered high school. Under the guidance of our advisor, Mr. Earl T. Justice, we soon overcame the lost feeling of new independence and began to par- ticipate in the activities of the school. Our class officer s were as follows : Arthur Medlin, president; Jean Williams, vice-president; Hazel Ford, secre- tary; and Ted Wheless, treasurer. The freshmen class was well represented in athletics with the following on the basketball and baseball teams; Page Allen, Judy Catlette, Jane Eagles, Kaye Hayes, Fred Beckham, Tommy Harris, and Wyatt Thayer. The Glee Club claimed seventeen music lovers from our class, while Shirley May and Jack Avent were member s of the band. It seemed as though the school year had hardly begun when May came. Our first year in high school ended leaving us with many happy memories and experiences. Upon returning to school our sophomore year, we were under the expert guidance of Mrs. Gladys B.Bailey. Our class officers that year were Presi- dent, Ronald Phelps; Vice-President, Jack Avent; Secretary, Jean W i 1 1 i a m s ; and Treasurer, Kaye Hayes. Beta club membership claimed several of the sophomores. Kaye Hayes was elected May Queen. Highlighting the year was the Sophomore Hop and the educational tour of Williamsburg. The school year passed rapidly and soon we had reached the half-way mark of our high school career. Our junior year was a busy one filled with fond memories. With the faithful assistance of our faculty advisors, Mrs. Sybil Jolly and Miss Raye Winstead and the help of our officers, Tom Cooke, president; Shirley May, vice-president; Page Allen, secretary; and Peggy Tomlinson, treasurer; we succeeded in making it a year of achievement. The most important events of our junior year were the receiving of our class rings and the Junior-Senior Banquet held in the school cafeteria and the Greenhill CountryClub. Chosen as county Beta Club o f f i c e r s were Tom Cooke, who served as pre sident and Peggy Tom- linson, secretary. Jane Eagles led the F. H. A. as president and as a delegate to the national convention in Chicago. Peggy Tomlinson served as Bi-County F. H. A. secretary-treasurer. Chosen to represent Louisburg at Girls ' State w e r e Peggy Tomlinson and Jean Williams. The fall of 1957 found us seniors at last. We began this year, our final one at Mills, under the guidance and leadership of Mrs. Susie H. Jackson. Leading our class as president was Bob Alston, aided by Peggie Joyner, vice-president; Kaye Hayes, secretary; and Ronald Phelps, treasurer. Peggy Tomlinson was editor of the annual and Tom Cooke, editor of the school paper. An out- standing member of the F. H. A. was Jane Eagles who was ele cted state reporter and District IV presi- dent. The proud wearers of blue and gold on the basketball court were Peggie Joyner andKaye Hayes, co-captains of the girls ' team and Bob Alston, captain of the boys ' team. Janice Joyner served as cheer- leader for the year. Doing a wonderful job on the baseball team were Richard Southerland, Tommy Harris, and Bob Alston. Playing the position of halfback on the football team was Arthur Medlin. Members of the band were Judy Catlette, Jean Baker, Tom Cooke, Tommy Harris, and Jack Avent. Lead- ing the Mills band as majorettes were Jane Eagles, Kaye Hayes, and Peggie Joyner. The capable school bus drivers were Shirley May, Tom Cooke, and Darrell Wilson. President of our newly organized Student Council was Ronald Phelps with Kaye Hayes, treasurer; Arthur Medlin, sargent-at-arms; and Jean Williams, class representative. Jean Baker was selected to receive the McCall ' s Teen Fashion Board Award. The Beta Club officers from the senior class were Ronald Phelps, president; Kaye Hayes vice-president; and Jean Baker, treasurer. Other Beta club members were Jane Eagles, Shirley May, Page Allen, Peggy Tomlinson, Jean Williams, Tom Cooke, and Tommy Harris. The class tour of Washington and the Junior-Senior Banquet were other events we shall never forget. The graduation exercises climaxed o ur cherished school days. As we the graduating class of 1958 leave Mills School, we wish to express our gratitude for its affording us the twelve happiest years of our lives. To our principals, Mr. M. L. Rowland and Mr. E. H. Stallings, who have patiently watched our pro- gress, to our teachers for such excellent guidance, and to our parents for their unfailing love and de- votion in guiding us throughout school, we say " Thank you. " May our success in life be a tribute to the interest and trust you have placed in us. Class Historian, Jean Williams 20 Class Song ' Mills High, Mills High, We are sad today- After twelve short years with you, We must go our way. As we dwell in years to come. Memories oh. so dear Will remain within our hearts Of our past joys here. Following our years with you We must make our start; From our teachers and our friends We shall hate to part; But with all you gave us, We the future face, Mills High School we leave you now, As we take our place. " Find one small stream, find one small life, Protected by Powers above- The stream will flow, the small life thrive. Guided by Heavenly Love. The years do fall, as banks give way Widened by growing force; Yet Love supplies the river ' s pow ' r As surer it marks its course. The land no more controls its path; At sea it drifts at will; Enduring Power then grants content, Its waters sure to still.
