You are ready to assume the obligations of an active citizen, and I urge that you do this with a willing heart and an earnest mind. Some of you will continue your education in schools of higher learningg others will undertake various vocations. There still maybe many with the ability to guide and the courage to resist, but they seem to underestimate the importance of that ability and that courage and will fail to exercise either. The greater your intelligence and the more profound your learning, the deeper your obligations, particularly if you agree, as you must, with Gamaliel Bradford who said, "Goverrr'nent is that which tries to teach distinction between good and ill, to spread large knowledge of the pact and fill men's minds with high, serene philos ophie s . " We bid you farewell from this institution as students, but we rejoice in the future that lies before you. What opportunities for self-expression, and what chances for civic leadership are yours? How admirably will you improve these opportunities and utilize those chances? I wish to congratulate you on the part of the faculty and the board of education for successfully completing your four years of training and Corning to the realiza- tion of your aspirations and dreams. We are sincerely proud of you, may God forever bless you and keep you. 6 Q-..1....4...4. 7 .4 IU' l-v. -5-mln-n- LEFT TO RIGHT: Claude Cobbs, Hazel Terry, Samuel Williams, Irene Taylor, Barbara Richardson, John Watson.

Q .In the year 1947, we a class of I45 entered this institution of learning, with anxie excitement and some with curiosity to find just what hundreds of others had found at such a place of higher education. So with the following thoughts in our minds we found ourselves here at Robert R Moron High School. Life ls a full blown year, with all things in their season: Thus, in our school career, Each change hath rhyme and reason The seasons come and go Each with its gifts in hand, That we may see and know How well all life is planned. ln our Freshman year 1948, which I' may refer to as Spring, with all green and growing things, fresh and verdant in the newness of life. What more fitting, them in this green time of her life, should enter school! The March winds and April showers were quite necessary to the budding of the shoots of knowledge in the Freshmen mind. With the instructions of Mr. Watson, Miss Wilson and Mrs. Peebles, we were enabled to fulfill a successful year. Before we could realize the fact, we were entering our second year in high school, in the year 1948, our sophomore year, which I may refer to as summer. And imagine how delightfully one season blends into the other. We found the skies so much sweeter and the sun shone more warmly over us. We held our heads very high and we kept the stalks that supported them very straight. They were not yet very heavy with their accumulation of wisdom and so did not drop with the weight. But our flowers were unfolding little by little. With our instructors, Miss Davenport, Miss Wilson, Miss Johnson and Miss Guerrant, we began to pave our way. Our class was organized with the following officers---Sonny Clark, president: Floyd Bland, vice president: and Florence Allen, secretary, There was only a slight decrease in our class enrollment, only two of us has fallen by the way, leaving 143 on the road to knowledge. By the beginning of autumn in the year 1949, our Junior year as in school life even as in nature leaves have their time to fall and flowers wither, and autumn came as soon as we were ready, very brilliant was our foliage this year, very rich our fruitage, as the little buds of the orientation year grown in to the flower from sophomore year became the richer, more necessary and more satisfying fruit of autumn lt was not all so easy and enJoyable There were test, cultrvations and the fall planting and with all our wisdom there was often much to be desired We no longer blushed red at some unexpected question We had passed through the stage of verdancy and crimson confession and a new color spoke the tale of our advancement This year we entertained the Seniors with quite an elaborate Prom along with Joy came sadness Two of our classmates were killed in an accident As the year 1950, our Senior year, approached us, the fruit was all gathered and stored rn our memories lt seemed a much sadder time than we expected With many problems facing us, we consider this year the most important year in our life The first of the year we maped out our plans First, we planned a year book the first in the history of our school Second, plans f THE CLASS HISTORY for a Senior week, at which time all senior activities will be sponsored Third a standardized school ring With the assistance of our sponsors, other instructors in our high school and the help of patrons and parents throughout the community, we wish to accomplish our goal But we all must remember lifes school which we are about to enter in the future years ahead will be a greater task We will be as green and fresh again as we were the first year of our high school career We may be hazed by the world but we know rt will be to prove the value of our training and give us a chance to demonstrate how very much we are alive fi- 11, ll -ii Q . . u I . . . . u I u - a 1 . u ' n ' n , . I l ir 1' .1- ...1 ,, ,.-1 li 1-in-I iii 1-1 un 1" r I F- CLASS PROP!-IEC? Listen, 0 ye men, youth and little children of Farmvtlle, and Prince Edward County Listen to the words of wisdom from the lips of your prophet, who now speaketh unto you what has been revealed unto him even as it hath been decreed by the powers that be It hath been given unto me as the chosen one of this class, the graduate class of 1952 to dream strange dreams and to see visions of the wonderful things of the years yet to be Now it so happened when it was decreed that the future of the class of l952 was to be given unto the hands of this your prophet to do even as he listed he cried out who am I that the future of this great and ambitious class depends of me? If there be a prophet among you, I will make myself known unto him in a vision, and speak to him in a dream. The veil before mine eyes grew thin and behold I could see them even as if the entervening years were not at all. I could see our President, Samuel Williams in his humorous way, years went on until he became the governor of the state of Virginia. As I looked again I could see among the society circles, Mary Dennis, Thelma Terry, Celestine Terry, Georgia Franklin and Virginia Lyle. Those who were fair to look upon, most bright and dazzling to sight and mind. And I also looked into professional circles, there Isaw Deloris Hicks, Daisy Willis, Irene Taylor, Josephine Carter, Pearl Spradley, Vanessa Coles in Elementary Schools. Claude Cobbs in Agriculture, and in a large office among men of many minds, sat prosperous lawyers, James Carthone and Jerry Edwards. And I happened to find myself on the interior of a large cathedral, where a stately priest in his robe of diginity poured forth words of inspired instruction. Verily, it was James Rice, who had thus entered into the work of the church, And it came to pass, while I pondered these things in my heart, the door of a home swung open before my vision, and I found there in a household made happy by Barbara Richardson, Mary Carey, Eula Edwards who made their greatest ambition in the highest of all wordly recreations, the makers and keepers of a home. And it came to pass, as Iwas watching the lights of the home fade away, that sweet music strains began to bounce on my ears, there in a great music conservatory, John Watson, Willie Walker, Alexander Fowkles, and William Lee. And behold a change came over the spirit of my dream and Ifelt within my heart, I had a desire to see some of my old chums I was conducted to a bachlors apartment, there I saw Louis Eanes, Alford Carthone, Helen Womack, Pauline Dupuy, Florence Allen, Alverta Hines, Aubrey Woolridge. They were having a wonderful time at a house party. ln my dream I visualized many of my class mates on farmsg Leon Miller, Wattdell Hines, Thomas Walker, Jacob Moron, Emmitt Neal, Connie Gordon. As I looked on, my eyes were finally opened to a large hospital in Boston, Massachuetts Barbara West, dietition, Virginia Reed and Frances Thompson, secretaries. Assistants, Louise Reed and Dorothy Anderson all in the same hospital. . Marvelous! As I looked again in my dream, I saw any number of mechanics, Arthur Rice, John Paige, Floyd Bland, Arthur Redd, Edward Walker, Joseph Reed, Joseph Randolph, and Melvin Watkins and Carl Allen. Many had selected Brick Masonery and Carpentry as vocations. Hugh Smith, Waymon Jones, Charlie Smith and Aubrey Womack. I am weary and tired now but just before I close my eyes I can see many of my classmates - in govemment service, as Sallie Scott, Vivian West, Hazel Terry, Juanita Thornton, Louise Reed, Ethal Vaughan, Dorothy Ford, Bernice Carter, Dorothy Anderson, Frances Thopson, Jewel Edwards, and Mable Walker, Finally, the sweet strains of music in my ears begun to fade away, and I closed mine eyes to the things that are to be and I turned my eyes to the things that are, surely that as coming events casts their shadows before, goodness, truth and prosperity shall follow all the days that re to come to the fair and talented members of the class of 1952. C s - l --- Ii-- 5 WI 7 J A: J If J ly CLASS POEM Classmatesg rest we here a little while once life is yet at morn, Pause and voice the new emotions that of this glad hour is born. 'Tis the time which all has led to, since we heard the first bells call, Summoning us to meet together in the now familiar hall. Dear old school! How much our days here slowly led us on to know! How much then undreamed of knowledge we are taking as we gol Many a day we've sat and pondered over some strangely puzzling text. Wondering what our wise instructors could bring forth to ask us next! Many a day we've worked some problem through in gratifying style, Trying to ma e ourse ves believe that we ad known it all the while. Faithfully we've toiled and striven, pressing on with higher aim Gravely living with each other emulating men of fame. Here about the grounds we've wondered, talking over all we've read, Thinking thoughts of deep for utterance- dreaming what must ne'er be said, When we leaped into a future, far as human brain might see, Saw the vision of our lives and all the wonders that might bel Listen for some "Never! Never!" whispered b the phantom years, Tilfa song from out the distance rang its promise in our ears, Boys will surely come to manhoodg men will surely older grow, Will the dreams of future glory follow after as we go? Where's the fare that we must turn to, leaving happy scenes like these, Are the doors not barred with gold to open, CLASS but to golden keys? Are the gates not thronged with suitors, do not markets overflow? We are yountg, and know so little! Where's the place or us to go? Oh! we're well prepared for action! watch us write on History's page, Names to shine throughout the centuries as the wonder of the age! For we fell a wild pulsation summoning to active strife, With a whole world for the winning, in the tumult of young life! Yearning for the wild excitement only strife worth while can yield, Eager-hearted through some new-found field. We have conquered in that class-room-- we shall win in efforts newg That which we have done but promise all the things we yet shall do! For I doubt not through our future life's increasing purpose runs, And our thoughts, too, will be widened by the process of the suns. O Commencement! not the ending that it seems to all our strife, But the gate that opens outward to a big- ger, broader life! Classmates may the crescent promise of our spirit never set, But the fount of inspiration gust through all our fancy yet: However life may lead, a long farewell to school we say, And to principal and teachers, nevermore to point our way, There's a blessing in my soul friends, dwelling from its deepest part. Gathering in its hold the deepest, truest, throbbing of my heart. Let it fall on our school and every old friend, as we know We must clasp each other hard and whisper, "Good-bye, class-mates!" as we go. Irene Taylor SONG Class song: MOTON FOREVER QTUNE: Santa Luciaj 1952 is here: Our year is endingg And of its hope and fear ln victory blendingg Yes as we pass, we say, Sad as we sever, "Moton forever! Moton foreverl" Great things are done of us, Science, Mathematics Large victories won of us Strong in athletics 20 Brave in debate are we won each endeavor Moton forever! Moton forever! Now as we leave the halls life's voice invitin , Loud every studsent calls, Fondly uniting, Farewell, 1952, to return never! Farewell forever! Farewell forever! The Class , ann s.
