We've reached it now, at last. On some bright faces you may find A look of great delight, While others seem to hate the thought Of leaving this dear site. We'II never know again the ioy We've had while here in school. But time has put behind us The cherished Golden Rule. The friends we've found along the way Mean more to us by far, Than all the ioys we'll ever know, They made us what we are. They made our hearts grow warm and soft And filled us with ambition To reach the highest place in life, And hold some rare position. by Eddie Bridges, CLASS POET 12 ' Qllgivflffl X xx , 1 jf f '-Q41 lea W vi jj X XM!!!

Yes, only three years ago we began our voyage in M. H. S. at the expense and sometimes nerve- wracking experiences of our teachers. Our of- ficers were president, Dean Ramseur, vice-presi- dent, Marie Fox, secretary, Donald Clarke, treasurer, Donald Denton. Our Student Council representatives were Arthur Howard, Bobbie Ox- ford, Katharine Booth, and Eddie Brid es Our g 0 stunt for the freshman class was the usual teen- age crowd in a soda shop. Our class really lumped into the swing of things, with sixteen members in the band andten on the Junior Varsi- ty football team. Our next year began with a little more confi- dence and quite a bit more studying. Officers elected that year were: president, Kent Hogan, vice-president, Kenneth Simpson, secretary- treasurer, Katharine Booth. The representatives to the Student Council were Donald Denton and Eleanor Nowlin. Our stunt was a mock hill-billy wedding. We really had fun putting this one over. Six members of the sophomore class made the Varsit team, while eight made the boys' and girls' basketball teams. September, l95O, found the junior class ex- cited and ready for one of the biggest years of their high school career. We chose as our of- ficers: president, Adair Hatcher, vice-president, Eddie Bridges, secretary, Carolyn Cannon, treasurer, Mack Browning. Donald Denton was elected vice-president of the Student Council, and the representatives were Carolyn Cannon and Jeff Helms. Stunt night brought the honor of first place, along with lots of fun in our pres- entation of "The Stork Club." We discovered that all the work put forth in planning and giving a wonderful Junior-Senior banquet was well worth the effort. The gym was transformed into a typical Hawaiian Island, and our imaginations were taken on a voyage that none of us will for- get for a long time. This year finds us as seniors with onlyla few short months left in Morganton High School. We have chosen as our officers: president, Bill Allman, vice-president, Eleanor Butler, secre- tary, Joan Ramseur, treasurer, Bob Carswell. Donald Denton is president of the Student Coun- cil, Carolyn Cannon is secretary, and Bill All- man is treasurer. Our representatives are Alwina Tilley, .loan Ramseur, and Bob Carswell. Tri- captains of the football team, and three who really deserve a hand, are Adair Hatcher, Mack Browning, and Eddie Bridges. Yes, we have only a short while left in M. H. S. This will fly by very quickly - with Stunt Night, the senior play, our trip to Washington, the Junior-Senior Banquet, and finally Commencement to look for- ward to. I should like to use a little more space to express our appreciation to the class advisers for their interest, trouble, time, and cooperation. To them we owe more than words can express. Thank you, Miss McClure, "Put," Mrs. Pons, and Miss Teter. Thank you, fellow students, teachers, and Mr. Price, for making the past four years the happiest of our lives. Carolyn Cannon H ISTOR IAN CLASS PROPHECY lt seems like only yesterday that we were all still in high school, striving to attain that universal goal - graduation. Well, we made it and some twenty years have passed. Things have surely changed since this old world has taken 7305 whirls. Nearly all our students have attained magnitude of one degree or another. You might think that our school roster was a Who's Who. Elmer Abee is now a great scientist down at the Akin Hydrogen Bomb Plant. He and his two assistants, Bill Allman and Richard Austin, are considered to be the top three experts in hy- drogen warfme in this country. Rick Benfield is famous for his hot iazz and is reputed by some to be the world's greatest. Barbara Berry, Peggy Branch, and Elinora Brittain, Arthur Bridges' chief secretaries, all draw S500 a week. Bridges gained national acclaim for discovering l00O uses of nothing in a glass bottle. Last month Katharine Booth became Morgan- ton's first Dean of Women. She has refused five proposals of marriage, because M.H.S. does not hire married teachers. Modene Buff was elected sheriff of Burke County this year after her "sweater girl" pic- tures were published in Esquire magazine. Dean and Gene Butler are presently starring in the New York Metropolitan Opera. They have already set new attendance records. Carolyn Cannon is an industrial magnate with twenty mills manufacturing chlorophyll chewing gum, which is guaranteed to give back your bad breath if you don't like the girl. Myrtle Carswell is one of the ten best dress- ed women in America according to Glamour Magazine, which is owned and published by Johnnie Copeland. Frank Clontz is the fanous professor that discovered the perfume that wan Peggy Dale a movie star for a husband. Clontz also won the Nobel Prize for his piercing exclamation to one of his assistants, "l hate every molecule in you!" I For his most serious and sincere attitude Jack Curlee has been named as the U.S. leader in the United Nations. Linda Deal starred with Jackie Devine in Sylvia Elmore Pictures lnc.' latest release, "l Love a Football Player." Jimmy Fisher is a retired Flea Circus owner. He said that his feed bill kept him in the red and gave him the itch. Reba Fleming is now a great aerialist with Barnum and Baily Circus. She does anything and everything hanging by her little toe 200 feet above the ground. Mary Frances Garrison is now working with Walt Disney and has bought part interest in his company. Richard Hallyburton has made money hand over fist with his ten new filling stations on main street in down-town Morganton. Wayne Hitt designed a house that can be put up in one hour flat, the only trouble is that he can't find a flat hour. Patricia Hollifield and Doris Harris own part interest in Barbara Johnson's huge hair dressing establishment on West Union Street. Business is slowing up, though, because Dewey Kirksey has discovered a hair restorer that makes all users restore their hair with a wig from Betty Keller's Wig Factory. Gordon Leonhardt was the first man to fly to the moon on a spoon la new phenomenon that has replaced the flying saucerl. Jimmy Logan has set more speed records than any other man alive! He recently won the National Speed Classic and has a house full of trophies and a back yard full of wrecked cars. Ruth Martin's latest play on Broadway was Jimmy McCall's immortal "Little Men." There was an all-male cast. Thelma Melton has her own television pro- gram now called "Ramgad." That's Dagmar spelled backwards. Maud Morrison went exploring in Africa several years ago and landed a huge elephant and a little husband. Julia Crites has danced her way to Holly- wood Her only remark was, "My feet are killing me. Emma Jean Nettles has founded a new chap- ter of the Boy Scouts. She scouts for them five days a week, plus Saturdays and Sundays. Harry Oliver is the famed Hilly Billy from Chillie you hear over Bobby Ross's radio station WIWD fwi sh l was deadi. Clifford Poteat is playing pro ball with the Washington Senators. Yesterday he won three straight tiddle-de-wink games to lead his team for this season of play. The only game they lost was to the Eagles, who are led by the most versatile player in recent history - Oren Powell. Willa Dean Ramseur has hooked her man and settled down in Alaska, where according to her she has plenty of fresh air. Mary Frances Rhodes is the best rodeo rider of the decade. She rode Cecil Tallent's killer horse known to everybody as Gentle George, the hairy horse. Kenneth "Gripey" Simpson, currently the richest man in America, collected his huge fortune by bumming pennies from students at M.H.S. He has collected and saved all those pennies these twenty years. Chief penny counter is Catllerine Shores, who stays covered up by her wor a the time. Helen Walker and Catherine Stamey have founded a school for unhappy, non-complacent bachelors. Joann Smith Powell is a successful lawyer. Her most recent case involved Lucille Whise- nant and Mary Jo Whitley. lt seems that both girls claimed that the oil Millionaire Floyd Williams was theirs. During the trial they started pulling on Floyd, and the next two weeks were spent in the hospital trying to relocate his ioints. Steve Wright has bought the Book Store and has made a million dollars in the first year. Don ll saw it alli Lee fl swear it's truei Denton Prophet Sorry, this page is unavailable.
