This year twenty seniors of Mount Sidney bring to a close one period of their life’s history; four years of working end plan¬ ning together,with memories and experiences which can¬ not be forgotten, with a store of knowledge that will influence the remainder of our lives.Since it is evid¬ ent that our High School days will greatly shape our future proceedings, it is well that we should glance back and review our actions during the past four years as one body. October 1, 1935 saw twenty-four of us,having emer¬ ged from the seventh grade, standing before the doors of Mount Sidney High.The doors opened, we entered, and with much glee and meaningless talk came to order to the command of Professor Grute, who warned us of what was corning and immediately began making plans for our future. Miss McGutcheon, a new member of the faculty invited us to the study of English, and has faithfully guided us in four years of wrestling with preoostions adverbs and other phases of English grammar as well as Shakespeare, Tennyson, Longfellow, Poe and many other masters of English literature. For the art of math, algebra, biology and commercial courses we flocked to Mr. Shull, for history to Mr. Grute who has also in¬ structed us in civics, chemistry, science, and geom- trv. Many chose to probe the depths of agrarian stud¬ ies and for these Mr.E.B.Craun was available for the first three years, giving way to Mr. A. T. Adams for the fourth year. Perhaps the greatest achievement of our first yr. was the realization on our part, of the seriousness of the task we were undertaking and a dawning on our mind of the fact that to obtain knowledge requires much ao- plication on the part of the seeker. During the first year we lost one member Louise Tyree. At the end of the first term,in the spring of 36,twenty-three Fresh¬ men who were green the precceding fall now showed a slight tint from having been exposed to the strong ray of knowledge for eight months. Upon convening for the second term, we discovered the loss of one member, Frances Hawkins, and later in that same year lost another, Gladys Glinodinst. How¬ ever we were rejoined by Louise Tyree, and in March we gained one B. J. Wampler, who although, he had little to say soon convinced us he contained much wisdom that would greatly aid in the solving of our proolums. This year we saw the dedication of our gymnasium in which ' we have spent many playful hours. The addition of this building added greatly to our opportunities. The clos¬ ing of the second eight month term marked the half way point in our high school course. After the lapse of the summer months we again as¬ sembled in September 1937 to continue our studies,hav-■ ing no 7 been raised to the level of Juniors. Our num¬ ber was added to by Grice DoGrescont and liter in the season Elvin Smith. This year we settled down to work with less gayety and more seriousness. The passing of the third year left only one remaining term to conquer. Upon convening for the last session we were soon to detect a lessening in our force. Gay Cline and Mary Alice Wine being the two ' who had discontinued working with us, and now our force stood at twenty. At last we were Seniors and were we proud, but this we soon found was the hardest period in our whole high school career. To carry on our regular studies, to maintain a dignity worthy of seniors,and the many necessary provisions to bo made for graduation kept us busy and the last year slipped by in great rapidity. Mow comes to close one period of our lives. vVe have been indeed fortunate in having the same faculty, Mr. Crute, Mr. Shull,and Miss McGutcheon the entire four years. As we glance back each one can see where he has made mistakes which can¬ not be remedied now. Let us urge you who are follow¬ ing our course to profit by our mistakes and look upon your high school opportunities seriously and use them to your greatest advantage. Rudolph Sheets CLASS PROPHECY It was about sundown on one of those warm, lazy evenings of spring. Being unable to think properly on prophecy of this class, I wandered out upon a grassy hill,thinking perhaps the beauty of the evening would help me solve my problem. As I sat deep in thought I was unaware of an airplane until it swooped over my head. Looking up I saw a white object drop over the side;it suddenly flared out into a parachute and came gently to earth. On reaching it found a ticket read¬ ing, " To the Prophet of the class of 1P39, Mt. Sidney High School. " Eagerly I tore off the wrappings and to my surprise found a small black box. On one side was a silver screen, on the other a set of keys. While I sat pondering over this strange object, dusk faded into night. The spring breeze came rust¬ ling through the tall grass. I began punching the keys and instantly a strange light seemed to flash on tue screen from within the box. It was Yankee Stadium. I recognized the man on the mound, Frank Johnson and Franklin Fultz as the one covering second base. They were playing with the Yankee’s who were still World ' s Champions. Punching the keys j.gain another picture flashed on the screen. I recognized a busy law office with Charles Sutton at the desk. His effecient secretary was Genova Wine. I punched the keys again and I saw the artist of our class drawing comics for a nation wide magazine. It was trie famous Carroll Cline. The next,was a scene of a modern passenger plane. It was meal time and the charming hostess, Grace De- Crescent was moving among the passengers seeing that everything was all right. The next scene made one almost smell the medicine of a hospital. Doctor Elvin Smith was giving Nurse Eunice Link instructions for the care of a patient. Forgetting the mystery of the box, I punched the keys again. My eager eye was soon rewarded with the gleam of shinning rails. Rushing along like a silver streak was a streamlined train, " whe Presidents Spec¬ ial, " A close up revealed another member of our class at the controls of the powerful was Charles Robertson. Again I punched, and this time I saw a member of our class survying with an inward pride and satis¬ faction rows of shinning jelly glasses, perhaps look- ing forward to the time of testing the flavor. This satisfied homemaker was Virginia Gilbert. It is strange so many Seniors of ’39 are working together,but the next picture was that of a luxurious flying boat. It had a crew of twenty but I knew only two of them. One was the chief radio operator known to us a Johnnie Driver. The other was navigating eng¬ ineer, charterer of the seas whom we knew as Claude Jordan. Strangly enough I again found two classmates in the same firm. It was a cement factory, the greatest in the world. Head bookkeeper in this firm was Rollin Harshbarger while head business manager was our class valedictorian, Junior Johnson. As I punched the keys, the scene changed. This time saw a member of our class conducting scientific expermints before a group of agriculture students. I recognized him as Vernon Landis. The next picture took me into a large hotel in a beautiful city. Many people were going in and out of its doors. I saw on a door at the back of the lobby ’’David Houff, Manager. " Flashing on the screen now was the interior of a style shop. There I found another class mate, Louise Tyree, designing evening gowns. Next was the inside of a large gymnasium. It was a basket ball teem of a large college running through some trick plays. I recognized Landis as their promising coach. As I punched the keys yet another time I saw a huge auditorium filled with people. They were almost swaying to the roll of a symphony orchestra. As the orchestra finished the loader turned and bowed to the crowd and who should he be except Rudolph Sheets, now a great musician. Having seen the futures of all of my classmates I decided to delve into my own future. But this time when I punched the keys, the box only became warm in my hands. Finally it became so hot I had to drop it, and as it touched the ground the silver screen became gray as wood ashes. Then the box slowly crumbled to dust and disappeared. Pondering the mystery of the box I slowly walked down the hill toward the house thinking it was best I did not know what the future held in store for me,be¬ cause any young person is often helped over the rough spots of his life by a mere thread of his dreams of a glorious future. B. J. Wampler Jr. GLASS POEM Today our high school days are done, The battle fought, the victory won; The senior class of thirty-nine, Is leaving high school days behing. At many times we must admit It’s taken spunk, it ' s taken grit To do the task to us assigned By our dear teachers good and kind. But they had also passed this way, And knew where many hardships lay, So each surmounted with their aid; We one and all have made the grade. With victory won and school days o’er We sometimes wish there were still more. For after all our toil and care, It almost makes us shed a tear To think as we pass through the gate, One from another must separate. Into a now world wo must go; Exactly where we do not know. But trusting God for all the best, We lay our high school days to rest, Hoping those who follow in our wake; May benefit by our mistakes.

We have been very fortunate in having as our instructor, Miss Spitzer, from Madison College and under her direction, the club has succeeded in do¬ ing a fine piece of work. Miss Dunbar,Supervisor of Music,in Augusta County has worked with the club and made it possible for the girls chorus to sing at Churchville and Richmond. The girls attended the State Musical Festival at Richmond. They came back much delighted as they were well complimented for their singing. The club has done very well the first year and we are hoping for a bigger and better club next year. OFFICERS President--Grace Decrescent Vice-President--B. J.

They have been helpful to the whole school. On all occasions they have been ready to help, when called upon. The Patrol Boys have shown us that it is very worth-while to have such an organization. Every men- ber is ready to help at the command. Vi e hope that in the near future, the organzation will continue to do its good work. GIRLS BASKETBALL This year the girls basketball team was not so suc¬ cessful. They were ably coached by Mr. Shull but just couldn ' t get started.In contest games they won two out of six games played. In practice games they were more successful winning eleven out of nineteen games played. Garber our left forward who has been a regular for three years was high scorer with 190 points. Johnson our other forward has 98 points to her credit, Ralston a close runner up with 58 points. Cline was started at center and later shifted to forward scored 40 points. Shumake and Cline showed their playing ability, and at center proved very successful. Whitmore and Wine our hard fighting guards will be back next year with the rest of the team to take their regular places. We are looking forward to a more successful year of basketball next year, as there are some fine prospects from the seventh grade.
