We stay in by the fireside Tis' winter time you know. Then a quick and magic change To make things bright and gay, A warm breeze begins to stir Cause spring is on the way. All the world is hot and dry The sun shines brightly down, Wheat is ready to harvest Now summer has come around. Leaves are falling from the trees Spreading color over all, Old Jack Frost soom will come We call this season fall. By Geneva Litaker IT'S When the sun comes up so red and round, And everyone is hurrying to get to town, And the whistles blow, and the school bell sounds It's morning. When all our work is satisfactorily completed, And we are at the dinner table seated, And our stomachs are so very depleated, It's noon. When the sun is sinking behind the hill, And you hear the call of the whip-o-will, And everything on earth is still, It's twilight. By Mary Barringer These two poems were accepted for publication in the Na- tional Anthology of High School Poetry. 16 SENIOR CLASS Classmates, we have toiled together Until now we're at the end, I am sure we'11 think back over How happy these years have been. So my wish for you today Is may you find in life success, But most of all for you I want A life filled with happiness. We've achieved a lot these years Working as if we were one, Maybe we'11 again be together When our lives on earth are done.

Our advisors were: Miss James, Miss Haines, and Miss Kuhn, to whom we owe much for the help they gave us in our new experience. Presidents of the three sections were Ann Crowell, Dorothy Swar- ingen and Geneva Litaker. Representatives to the Student Council were Walter McDonald, Joan Petrea and Betty Mae Cauble. Many member of the class joined various clubs and athletic teams and the year was a very successful one. The next year we came back with a determination to make our Sophomore year even greater and more successful, knowing now what was expected of us as high school students. Our advisors were Miss Haines and Mr. Webster. Student Council members and officers were elected. In Miss Haines room: President, Lorene Ritchieg Vice-President. Howard Millsp Secretary, Margaret Plottg Treasurer, Jeanette Millerg Student Council member, Walter Mc- Donald. ln Mr. Webster's room: President, Betty Mae Cauble: Vice-President, Ann Crowellg Secretary, Geneva Litakerg Treasurer, Vernice Allman: Student Council member, Charles Fortune. Spring came quickly and we left our second year ofhigh school feeling that we had com- pleted a very profitable year. The following fall found us Juniors and ready for any task set before us. Miss Haines and Mr. Webster were our advisors. We elected our officers for the year. In lvliss Haines home room theywere: President, Howard Millsg Vice-President, Joan Petreag Secretary, Joyce McDonald: Treasurer, Ruby Smith. In Mr. Webster's home room: President, Betty Mae Caubleg Vice-President, Mary Barringerg Secretary, Vernice Allman, and Treasurer, Geneva Litaker. ' One of the most outstanding events for the year was the Junior-Senior Banquet at Hotel Concord, which will always be remembered as a very happy occasion. We presented the Junior Play, 'Let Us Be Glamorous," directed by Mr. Roy Webster. Students taking part were Betty Jean Sikes, Geneva Litaker, Edna Canupp, Betty Cauble, Mary Barringer, Dorothy Swaringen, Joan Petrea, Betty Mason, Ben Cline, Kindred Cox, Harry Goodman, and-Howard Mills. Just before our Junior term ended we had a hay-ride and picnic supper. A good time was had by all. At last we had reached the top. We were now Seniors with 56 members. We realized that our high school days were soon over and that we must make this the best year of all. We were happy to have as our advisors Miss Haines and Mr. Webster. Our officers were: President, Howard Millsg Vice-President, Walter McDonaldg Secretary, Edwin Earnhardt: and Treasurer, Ben Cline. Student Council members were: Dorothy Swaringen and Betty Mae Cauble. Our class colors are ,blue and gold and the class flower the red rose. Our motto is: 'Now we launch, where shall we anchor? " And now we reach the hour we have looked foward to for twelve years - the hour we re- ceive our high school diplomas! Our joy, however, is tinged with sadness, for our school days together are over. We leave hoping that our years have not been in vain and that we have con- tributed to Mt. Pleasant High School will serve as an inspiration to the classes to come. The curtain is drawn on our history as students of Mt. Pleasant High School. AEach of us will keep making history but not like the history we have made together these four years. 22 PINIPHHIY As I lay in bed a few nights ago, waiting for sleep to come, I began thinking about the nearness of the time when my classmates and lmust leave high school and start out on life's road. I was wondering what the future held for us and what we would make of our lives. Then sleep came and with it a dream. In this dream I saw many people coming nearer and nearer. I recognized the first three as Louise Kluttz, Betty Mason, and Margie Burris, all in nurses' uniforms. Then I saw Ann Crowell, Joan Petrea, and Dot Swaringen, studying hard for a college exam. Next on the scene came aMajor League baseball game. Paul Petrea is pitching and Ross Troutman is holding first. Another member of the Senior class has taken to athleticsg she is Margaret Plott, softball slugger. Charles Fortune is standing in the doorway of Fortune's Studio and Camera Shop. Now I see many efficient secretaries, among them Lorene Ritchie, Vernice Allman, Nel- lie Bost, and Dot Moose. Mary Barringer seems very content as she paints another beautiful picture in her own artistic way. Interior Decorator Doris Furr and Fashion Designer Mary Louise Fisher are happy in their work, too. We are also making headlines on Broadway. Flake Mills is starring as Romeo in Shake- speare's 'Romeo and Juliet." Edna Canupp is a comedienne. Gale Morgan now operates the "South's Largest Seed House' with his partners, Wade Ritchie and Ben Cline. I see Walter McDonald and Glenn Safrit strolling on a college campus. A giant passenger plane leaves the airfield. On it as stewardess'es are Betty Wagoner and Alice Corl. Managing nice homes of their own are Joyce McDonald, Lillian White Talbert, and Jeanett Miller. Patrick Wishon is a Railroad President and on one of his trains are Harry Lee Goodman as engineer and Harold Little as conductor. Big farm owners and operators are John Walker, Gene Moose, Joe Cress, and Guy Bost. Lloyd Ritchie and Wilber Lewis are still at their old tasks of driving a bus, only now it is a Greyhound bus. In Evans College of Commerce I see Betty Mae Cauble, Margaret Honeycutt, and Betty Jean Smith, banging away at their typewriters. Helen Ruth Rimer and Ruby Smith are tele- phone operators. Two buyers in big department stores are Juanita Burleson and Betty Casper. Margaret and Miriam Walker are teaching school and Josephine McLester and Dean Simp- son are teaching Kindergarden. A famed television artist is Betty Jean Sikes. Still other outstanding men are Earl Earnhardt, owner of the furniture manufacturing firm Kendred Cox and Edwin Earnhardt, F.B.l. agentsg Alan Fink, traveling salesmang and Ad- miral Jimmy Hagler. The people faded into a distance and I awoke with the sun shining in my window. I thought what a pleasant dream I had had. There was only one thing wrong with it: it still left me wondering what would happen to me. Class Prophet Geneva Litaker Z3 Editor-in-Chief. . . . Betty Cauble Business Manager . .

Miss Alice Haines and Major Roy Webster accompanied us on our trip. Upon arriv- ing at Chapel Hill, we went to the University of North Carolina. There we saw the library, stadium, swimming pool, and gymnasium. About eleven o'clock we were entering Durham, the great tobacco manufacturing city. While in the city, we ex- perienced a great thrill visiting Duke University where we spent quite a while in the beautiful Chapel. Next and last on our list was Raleigh. There we visited his- torical p1aces,such as the Capitol building, birthplace of Andrew Johnson, and museum. Leaving Raleigh at five o'clock we arrived home at approximately eight- thirty. Everyone enjoyed the trip. THE FREEDOM TRAIN During our Junior year we received word that the Freedom Train, which was touring the country carrying famous documents, was coming to Charlotte. We immediately made plans for the trip. We chartered a bus and left early on the morning the Freedom Train was to be in Charlotte. Whenwe arrived, there was along wait before we could enter the train and see the famous documents. Among them was a letter written by Columbus in 14933 the famous 19th Ammendment that gave the women the right to voteg the Gettysburg Address deliveredby Abraham Lincoln, onNovember 19, 18635 a copy of the treaty of peace recognizing the Independence of the United States of America and signed in Paris, September 3, l783g and many others. We had studied about these docu- ments all throughout our school career, but after we had seen them we had a better understanding of our Country's glorious history. 27 v , f, 'Q a A .wk 7 ,.

JUNIOR SENIOR BANQUET On the evening of May 6, 1948, at Hotel Concord, the members of the Junior Class gave their annual banquet for the Seniors. The banquet was marked by beauty, friendship, and scenes from the 'Gay 90's Fashion Show." 'The Band Played On," 'Strolling Through the Park," and the 'Gay 90's Ball Game," were among the acts splendidly performed by members of the Junior Class. Those taking part in the evening's program were, Flake Mills, Charles Fortune, Lorene Ritchie, Geneva Litaker, Betty Mae Cauble, Guy Bost, Margaret Plott, Helen Ruth Rirner , Jean Sikes, Wilbur Lewis, James Hagler, Lloyd Ritchie, Walter McDonald, Joyce McDonald, Earl Earnhardt, Harry Lee Goodman, Claude Whitley, Edna Canupp, Jeanette Miller, Mary Bar- ringer, Dorothy Swaringen, Joan Petrea, Betty Lou Wagoner, and Kindred Cox. The address of welcome was delivered by Flake Mills, to which response was made by Ted Ridenhour. Mary Barringer gave a toast to the members of the school board, to which Dr. A. L. Barringer responded. Betty Mae Cauble gave a farewell address to the Seniors, after which Dorothy Swaringen toasted the teachers and M. T. Moye, principal of the high school, responded. All high school teachers were present, and member of the school board. The program for the evening was under the direction of Miss Alice Haines, assisted by Miss Ruth James and Miss Martha Cox. About one hundred and ten guests were present for the banquet, which was one of the most delightful ever to be presented by members of Mount Pleasant High School. HAYRIDE The hayride was held in the Spring of 1948. The end of school was drawing near and the class wanted another social before their Junior term came to an end. A hayride was voted for the social. Everyone was to meet at St. John's Community Building and bring a picnic supper. John Walker and Kendred Cox were to bring wagons. When everyone had arrived the two wagons were quickly filled with gay students. During the ride everyone became hungry and the wagons were turned back to the Community Build- ing in order for the students to have refreshments. The food was delioious and soon made to disappear by the hungry group. After eating, some of the students left and the remaining ones wanted to go ona second hayride. Just one wagon was needed this time, but the ride was soon to end because it started raining. Almost all the Juniors were at the hayride. Mr. Earl Henson, and Rev. Herman Cauble went along with the group. Everyone had a wonderful time. SENIOR CLASS PARTY The Seniors had their first class party on December 17, 1943- A1th011gh it was a Christ- mas party, it had to be early because of the various activities that were going on. The party took place in the Mount Pleasant High School Auditorium which was decorated with the Christmas theme. The games consisted of cooty, bingo, passing the ring and various other games dealing with the Christmas season. After the games we re played, everyone enjoyed the refreshments that followed. They consisted of sandwiches, ice cream and cookies. Thirty-six Seniors,two visitors, Mr. Earl Henson, Miss Alice Haines, and our principal, Mr. M. T. Moye, made up the group attending the party. 30 , ,. 11 A 5- 4 n 4, Q an , ,f m me V H 47 'X A af! g 4f " V if I 1, I ,VVA V h 2 1-3 sw- 1 :Y W " . .K vim 5 W - K .. l iii 'fllffflti ,Q , K' wig X 2 .Q Q A 2 ii eg L 4 , gl , as 'L ' W f f -my fy ,i 1-fr , zgbfiis I M a , . la, , , W 5 V F A az ns Q54 ff ji PM 'S A - vf:" Q?

They were crowned King and Queen by Douglas Caston, chairman of the carnival. Ann very attractively represented our school in the Concord and Kan- napolis Christmas parades. 32 lv 'T-'f".

IIHHIHEAIIIHS 43 l3IRlSBASKHBAll This year's basketball for the girls saw very few wins, yet, this was expected due to the fact that the team was almost entirely com- posed of inexperienced players. June Fortune, the captain, was the only one having seen first string service in previous years. The Tigerettes downed Bethel twice, Millingport once, and gave some "close shaves" to the other county teams. No first stringers will be lost down the road of graduation and next year it will be a well experienced team which battles on the hardwood. Seated above in the form of an "M" reading from bottom Left to Right, are: Joan Petrea, Ruth Mills, Louise Brooks, Billie Williams, Mildred Burris, Althea Smith, Peggy Smith, Ann Corl, June Fortune, "Chub" Barrier, Rose Watts, Ann Crowell, Frances Penninger, Betty Honeycutt, Louise Rice, Betty Kepley, and Jane Ridenhour. 44 BUYS IlASKHBAll Y 3 ,,.:.,..'.,.. .. ..... lf we must be truthful concerning the won and lost record of our boys for their 1949 basketball season, it would sound quiet hopeless to the listener. For 'Lost All and Won None" sounds good to no one. Yet, here the same as in the circumstances surrounding the girls, we find inexperienced players. The captain, Paul Petrea, was the only player to have played first string previously. A new attraction in the country was the "B" squad games between the lower classmen before regular games. We feel sure that in the future this experience will prove valuable in building championship teams. Pictured above in the form of a "P," reading from bottom Left, are: Ray "Cotton" Page, Flake Mills, Ray Fisher, Charles Fortune Douglas Caston, Hal Allman, Hoyle Swarringen, Robert McAllister Gilbert Heilig, Paul Petrea, Eugene Sides, Earl Clark, J.

This something new was gridiron football. Through the efforts ofthe Athletic Alub, uniforms had been purchased and the entire student body was looking forward to our first football season. The record isn't exactly what one would care to publicize, but just the same we're proud of the spirit of the Tigers and our eyes look more to the future for greater things to come. As we, the departing Seniors grad- uate, we leave these simple words: "More Power to You!"
