To the Freshman Class we will the have acquired both as a whole and as individuals, we will and bequeath the Senior privileges in the right to attend the school on each one of the thirty-six Saturdays in the school year, and to stay the full time limit of three hours per day. Section III Article I. Every family has a skeleton ip the closet. Our skeleton is the Sophomore Class. They have reached that idiotic stage in school life wherein, bursting with pride, they know, or think that they know, all that is to be known. It seems that neither reason nor intelligence may be crammed through their thick- skulls. To them, therefore, we will many hours of hard work which is to con¬ front them when they awaken from that delusion which once was ours. Also, to them we bequeath the mythical collar buttons and cuff links. Section IV Article t. We take this opportunity to acquaint the Junior Class with the delightful fact that they will, within the next year, come into possession of a great knowledge, a knowledge that many men have gone through life and have never found. That is to say, they will come to know just how much they do not know. By these presents, we will and bequeath unto said Junior Class our dignity, our privileges, and that exalted seat of honor, Room 12 . Also, we burden them with the responsibility of upholding the reputation of M. A. H. S. Article 2 . As further proof of our benevolence, certain individual Seniors hereby bestow upon various individual and unsuspecting Juniors certain prop¬ erties as are herein stated : Bernice Harris wills her modest disposition to Martha Binder. Mary Katherine Booker leaves a boisterous whisper to Rena Pendleton. Arlie Stewart wills to ‘ ' Texas” Satterfield a ‘‘volume control” to he used while conjugating a certain Spanish verb.

William Simpson leaves to James Combs the ghost of argumentation. I.ong may it haunt him! Valeria Jackson, James Creed, and Dorothy Jackson leave to any ten mem¬ bers of the Junior Class their ability as advertising managers. Hugh Sawyer wills his slogan, " Necessity heeds no law,” to Irene Roberts. Dot Jackson wills to Clara Belle Welch the breakfasts which she didn’t have time to eat. (That will average about five per week, Clara.)

Suddenly, I saw the entire Class of ' 29 on a large yacht that was floating lazily along on the Dead Sea. The captain of this ship, the “Mohisco,” was Elmo Beasley. Mrs. Cornelius Astorbilt, a New York society matron, whom I recognized as Virginia Marshall, seemed to he the owner, and she was ente rtain¬ ing the Seniors. There were Professor and Mrs. Raymond Worrell, sitting on the upper deck. •‘Red " was talking about his work as a teacher of French at Meredith College. His wife, Hallie Nelson, was listening attentively. Then 1 saw ' Mary Elizabeth Partridge and Lexter Holyfield playing quoits. •‘Pots” was talking about the unpleasant publicity which she had received for being the first woman to swim Lovill’s Creek. " Leek joined in with an occas.onal remark about his work as an actor with the Theatre Guild in New York. Mary Katherine Booker and Mary Margaret Hollingsworth were entertaining the others with their antics, and I gathered from their conversation that they are now comediennes on the Keith audevdle Circuit. Frances Booker and Annie Dean, two Chicago debutantes, were discussing their social engagements. I saw Valeria Jackson with her gun. Evidently, she had just returned from a Byrd-hunting expedition. With her was a sober-looking man dressed in a black suit " and wearing a clerical collar. I didn’t recognize him as William Simpson until I heard him talking about his success in converting savage African tribes. There was Robert Jackson, salesman par excellence, with a pile of the um¬ brellas which he sells to the natives of the Sahara Desert. Homer Beck was with him trying to rest from his arduous duties as poet laureate at the court of King Rameses XXIX. Someone was arguing so that I could hardly hear myself think. No wonder I couldn ' t. It was James Armfield and Paul Surrett. Jim turns his talents into money bv working as a lawyer, and Paul by waiting on the table at the Blue Ridge Hotel. Annie Thomas and Sarah Brockington were gossiping as they walked slowly by. Annie planned all the meals in the White House last year. Sarah was knit¬ ting her brows over the many problems she has as president of the Woman’s Suf¬ frage Union of America. I wondered what was coming next. Then I saw a couple at the other end of the deck. The man was dressed in overalls and he had a big straw hat under his arm. The fair lady wore a long black skirt and a stiffly-starched white shirt¬ waist. What a sight! Two of M. A. H. S.’s loyal alumni? Impossible! I saw that the hero was Ishmael Davis, now a farmer, 1 suppose, and the heroine, Bernice Harris, on old-maid school teacher. Susie Young, of whose activities as a scientist I had already heard, was modestly telling Ruth Johnson and Freda Webb how she is able to change an onion into an apple. Myrtle Adams ran by crying because her husband’s drug business at Dobson kept him from coming with her. After Susie and Myrtle had left, Ruth engaged a wedding cake from Freda, who specializes in baking this important food. Ruth is going to marry the Prince of Iceland. ft Vi ft ft ft ft ft 1 ft § ft ft ft ft ■Ibs ft, Vi Vi ft -Vi ft Vi Vi ft: W? 45.

He is a traveling salesman for that company. Dorothy Jackson, who had just been crowned “Miss America” for 1939, was watching Hallie Moore dance. Hallie teaches school at Low Gap. I was not surprised to see Clunette Creed doing all kinds of elaborate hand¬ springs, cartwheels, and the like. I suppose he has to go through all of this stren¬ uous exercise in order to keep the title of the world’s strongest man. He stopped once in a while to talk to Nora McKnight who was poring over the notes which she had taken preparatory to writing a new Spanish reader for High School stu¬ dents. By listening attentively to what Clunette said, I learned that Jack Warren had been sent as a consul to Patagonia, and that William Taylor was an under¬ taker in the Fiji Islands. About this time I saw Arlie Stewart sitting in a rocking chair in the shade of the poop deck. He was eating some of the popcorn which he hadn’t sold while he was a popcorn vender in Atlantic City. Between mouthfuls, he helped Pauline Barber get the tune of a new song which she is going to teach the school children of Mount Airy. I feel sorry for the unfortunate children who have this teacher. Mary Lynn Hentiis, who has just succeeded Billie Dove in the movie world, passed by with Professor and Mrs. Hugh Alton Sawyer. Hugh is busy most of the time teaching science at Pilot Mountain. Thelma Mayberry, Katherine Monday, and Gertrude Ramey all seemed glad to get away from the : r work for awhile.

Sufficient progress has been made, how¬ ever, for us to chart our course. This brief survey which follows may provide us and others with safeguards for the future. It is recorded that four years ago, out of the various little streams of Gram¬ mar School days, some two hundred of us landed our frail and tossing barks at the port of Mount Airy High School. Now we began a new life. Each mariner cast aside his old bark and chose for himself a new one. He picked the one which he considered most worthy, and set to work to map out his course. Some of the sailors became disappointed in their choice of ship ; others de¬ veloped a peculiar malady and finally fell overboard into the Sea of Failure. The greater majority firmly gripped the oars of Hard Work and Determination, and vigorously rowed toward the goal of Success with Pilot Powell and Rules and Regulations as their guides. The fellow voyagers gathered in the hold and edited a paper called The High Spots which enjoyed a very successful year. We are proud to leave behind us what we hope is a lasting monument. The year passed without disaster, except that many of our fellow mariners were put in the brig because they were unable to obey the strict orders sent out by Admiral Sparger and Commodore Hurst. It was during the second year that the sailors established the Literary, Dra¬ matic, Commercial, Public Speaking, and Science Clubs. These clubs proved to be beneficial as well as entertaining. About the middle of this same year, the seamen came upon the shipwrecked ‘ ' Latin” and transferred the unfortunate sur¬ vivors to the good ship “Science.” This year passed very quickly because we were getting to be veteran sailors on the Sea of Education. Books held a new meaning, experiences were cherished, and new beauties admired. In the latter part of the third year of our voyage, we drew into port long enough to give a banquet in honor of our upper classmen, and we were given the satisfaction of knowing that our efforts were not in vain. This part of the journey brought a newly-acquired dignity, a real purpose, and some satisfaction. By the end of the year, we regarded ourselves as true mariners. Then came the fourth and last year of this propitious voyage of which we give account. The seamen considered their voyage to be such a success that they edited an annual in which they recorded the most important features of the jour¬ ney. We sincerely hope that each succeeding Senior Class will put out a Granitecr and thus carry on the wor k which we have started. We found the course mapped out by Pilots Fisher and Prather, and Captain Brown to be smoother and more beautiful than ever. The weather was very clear and the current steady and strong. On the important day of June the first, we gathered “all hands together” and received our diplomas. Now we have finished our high school life, our vision is broadened, our purpose strengthened, our hands made stronger for the tasks. We are ready to embark upon the voyage of Life. Certainly our experience has been worth while. —Dorothy Jackson, Historian. ft ft M Vi ft ft ft M V, ' ft ft 7 »t vi ft ft ft ft ft Vi ft ft; ft ft ft Vi ft ft: y.i ft m Vi ft ft ft ft « ► M v!y ft At M 1 i ft ft ft ft ft ft ft: ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft Vi m i Page twerity-eight I 1 I p I § 4 | I p 3a p 3a V.V ¥ i ¥ ■i I | p: 4 H la p 4 P ia vs la p 4 p A P $E p.

Usually, Juniors and Seniors are bitter rivals, but with us it is dif¬ ferent. We Juniors have a friendly feeling toward the Seniors and are very glad of having this opportunity to express our feelings. Let us commend the Seniors, first of all. for establishing 7 he Graniteer. e shall always lie proud to say that it was instituted by the Senior Class of 1929 . The originality of the annual is outstanding, and very typical of our Seniors. Then we want to congratulate you upon your size; you are the largest class that has ever been graduated from Mount Airy High School. Never before has such an original, intelligent, dignified, and able body left our school. We are expecting you to establish an enviable record in your future college and business life, just as vou have made an excellent record here in Mount Airy High. We sincerelv hope that we can follow in your footsteps, and do as well as you have done. Again, to the editor-in-chief, the business manager, the assignment editor, to the headlines editor, and reporters of The High Spots, all of whom are Seniors, let us give praise. You have paved the way to the success of the school paper. May we continue to make 7 he Mount Airy High Spots a worthwhile paper. We shall not embarrass certain individuals of the Senior Class, whose chief trait is modestv, by listing their outstanding virtues, but will group these people and praise them collectively. The Juniors, give honorable mention to Sarah Brockington, Dorothy Jackson, Mary Katherine Booker, Frances Booker, William Simpson, Thomas Edwards, Valeria Jackson, and Raymond Worrell for their sup¬ port of and work on outside activities. To the Commercial Seniors, special praise is due. They have made possible the publication of The High Spots and The Graniteer by willingly typing material after school, as well as m school. e do not mean to slight anv Senior, but do want to give credit where credit is due. Seniors, you are the best of sportsmen. Sportsmanship is one of your many good characteristics. We are thinking not of the games you won or lost, but of the way in which you played the game. You should be proud of Lexter Holyfield, captain of the football team, who led our men in the state championship. Our team, under his leadership, was among the last to be eliminated in the state race. Also, we glory in being able to claim that two Seniors of Mount Airy High School were chosen for the All-State football team. Football men, continue this record! We are behind you! Not only to the football team goes praise, but to the basket¬ ball and baseball teams also. In this limited space, we can say little more, but we want to tell you that you are the finest Senior Class we know. We wish you all the success in the world, and are cheering for you in anything you attempt. Let us assure you that we will continue The Graniteer, which you started, and back the paper which you helped to publish. Seniors, we salute you and wish each one of you health, wealth, and happiness. —Mildred Wolfe , ’ 30 . m I 8 I m Ssx •V.V I m Vi m ft m M 11 ,w H m Vi Vi Vi ; Vi Vi I I Vi Vi ■Vi Vi Vi I I m 1 I Vi Vi Vi Vi m u m w Page thirty-four rANITE Page thirty-six m m 1 f I f | I ft a i ft 5 ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft sg ft ft ft 5a ft: ft ft: ft i 5a ft ft IS 1 i 1 ft A V m % i w Vi» M jJS.

What does a Soph have to look forward to? First, just being a Junior the third milestone on the quest for a diploma; second, numerous privileges and experiences which tower above the Sophomore limit. We are very eager to reach the summit of Mount Math and view the rocky cliff of Solid Geometry. We are anxious to wend our way through the dark caves thereof, and prove our valor against the unseemly and misshapen beasts—trun¬ cated prisms, pyramids, and cubes. Most of us will study French for the first time, and can “comment allez-vous” and “an revoir” the Sophs and Freshmen as the Juniors do now. My! How educated some of us will feel when we can say, “We are reading Cicero that is, if we are able to become well enough acquainted with our friend Caesar to desire further Roman friendship. At any rate, the ghost of Caesar shall haunt us no more. ()ur minds being prepared, we shall enjoy " deep stuff ’ in English, for Master Shakespeare has hidden his treasures between the walls of b ooks and bids us find and enjoy them to our utmost pleasure. Having made our way through the dense forests of European History, and conquered those uncouth Visigoths and Huns, we expect to journey through more explored territories and among friendlier tribes next year. Who could help but look forward to the pleasant times ahead in our various clubs so lately organized? Our hope is to help them grow and thrive until they exceed our fondest desires. Many are our visions of conquering the athletic world in the fierce tourna¬ ments we foresee in the crystal. Then, the Junior-Senior Banquet—the one big event that we have been antici¬ pating since we were Freshmen—will come in the early spring. We shall give those Seniors a banquet that will live in their memories. Fall will come again, and we shall be Seniors, “Sanctified Seniors,” and such a short time ago, “rats”! Besides being d ignified, we shall uphold the standards of our school, and set the very best example of school spirit for the other classes. ()f course, we are looking forward to our Senior privileges. For two long years we have had to look up to Seniors and show them the proper deference. What a pleasure it will be to have other classes looking up to us! Let us hope that we’ll know how to receive all this homage. During our reign as Seniors, we shall work on the third volume of our Graniteer. We shall do our best to add a worthy volume to the work started by the Seniors of ’ 29 . How pleased our class should be to leave a memorial behind! Perhaps we shall be instrumental in getting a gymnasium for the school. Then other classes, at present struggling along in grammar school, will revere our memory and name us with pride. Who knows? The spring of ’31 will find us very busy preparing for our graduation—the one thing we hold as our goal. For the present we shall work, with our dream clouds, hand-embroidered, floating above us; for even though our graduation is a goal, vet it is the Waterloo of many happy hours.

Bustling here, bustling there ; Dashing by, quick and rough. Full of fun, grit, and bluff. Full of pep, full of hope; No time to tarry, or to mope; Loving sports and education, Longing eyes on graduation! I must stop and get my breath! Even writing about these impetuous Fresh¬ men takes my breath away. Then too, my Muse is deserting me, my inspiration is faltering, and I must resort to prose as a means of expressing my opinion of the Freshmen Class. I have known people who looked with condescending eyes upon Freshmen and considered them necessary evils who do nothing but make silly mistakes and take up valuable room. I think otherwise. Sometimes, unfortunately, Fresh¬ men have the idea that Seniors, most of the time, hold themselves aloof from Freshmen. Such has not been the intention of the Senior Class. We have been interested in your activities, and have noted with approval your splendid attitude toward your work. I remember, when I was a Freshman, that, along with many others, I felt the need of more consideration, respect, and companionship from the Seniors. If our class has failed you in these respects, please accept our apology. Do you want to know my opinion of you? I think that you are one of the finest, most sincere, most cheerful, and most energetic classes that I have ever seen. No joking; you are. I admire your wisdom in realizing the seriousness of your tasks, and the fine spirit that helps you in the completion of them. It makes me happy to know that four years from now, one of the largest, and most mature classes ever to be graduated, will go out from this school, provided the members of the class continue to do as well as they have done in the past. No class realizes any more than we do, how enthusiastic, how earnest, and sincere you are in your work. There are many days when we are worn-out, tired, and discouraged, but when we see how fresh and business-like you are, why, we naturally feel refreshed. It has been a pleasure to the class of ’29 to be in school with such an excellent class as that of ’32. We have learned much from you that is helpful, and I take this means of showing you how deeply appreciative we all are of your splendid qualities. —Homer Beck ’29 8 1 § E E E E § 1 E E ft E E E E E E ,E E: 1E1 E n E E ft E E E • yJv 31 E E E m ' M $ m ■tx m id m w m SXc m ft m ◄ E E E E E E E s I E I E E E E E ■m ft Page forty-two m ATHLETIC COUNCIL OFFICERS -President Secretary Treasurer Irene Roberts J.

He put a team on the field last fall that startled the backers of our High School and, if showing in spring practice means anything, he’ll have a more formidable team next season than he did the past season. He already has five tough games on schedule for next fall. Did you know that J tackle in football circles make it. JIM CREED 1 m Creed was unanimously picked all-state high school last fall? This was Jim’s third consecutive year to A TALE Do you know where “Arch ’ Dobson got his mustache? 1 hey say he attended a basketball game at Globe “Y ' last winter, swallowed one of the mules, and left its tail sticking out. “Coon” Creed and “Red Worrell have the contract to do all the shearing necessary. OUR DREAM REALIZED We’ll have to abandon our playing in ’ole Globe " from now on, ac¬ cording to the latest reports. Old Dame Rumor has it that Mounty Airy High will have a first-class gymnasium by the opening of the cage season next winter. A HINT TO THE WISE It is possible that several of these next season, now that the old ball pai opponents should highly appreciate it. would-be sheiks will k has a soft grassy report carpet for football on it. Our COACH CARROLL Hats off to Miss Cornelia Carroll! She is the lady who took over the coach¬ ing reins of the girls’ cage team and piloted it to a successful season—in fact, the most successful one of any girl team’s career in M. A. H. S. CHECKING UP It is said that “Shep” Monday and Jim Armfield will attend Emory and Henry next year. These boys are considering changing the name of this institu¬ tion to Monday and Armfield. “Gus” Stewart will join the millionaires down at Duke.
