CLASS HISTORY SEPTEMBER, 1948 Anchors aweigh! On this day the ship Freshmen set out on its four years ' voyage. Newly recruited seamen were given their berths aboard ship. The fate of their voyage was in the capable hands of their pilots—Fontaine Reece, president; Patricia Welch, vice- president; Corinne Sitison, secretary; and Carl Baber, treasurer. By following old crewmen, the seamen finally found their way around the ship. OCTOBER, 1948 Charles Harris, Larry Taylor, Bill Coble, Bobby Finch, and Kelvin Seivers tried their luck at football. As new offices are always taken over at the beginning of every voyage, Donald Black¬ burn, Richard Creed, and Patricia Taylor were installed as student council representatives. One of the many beginning school contests was the High Spots subscription contest. Mona Faye Hiatt won the third prize of two dollars.

JUNE, 1949 As most of the crew were a bit seasick, yet better versed in the lore of the sea, and the ship Freshmen a bit worn, they pulled into harbor for a three months’ shore leave. SEPTEMBER, 1949 After three months the date of the new voyage was announced, and the crew, better acquainted with the sea, embarked on a new ship, the Sophomore.

T1 very proud pilots this year; Carl Baber, president; Sarah Neste vice-president; Jeanne Gwyn, secretary; Dottie Perry, treasure They realized that for many this would be the last trip; they al: realized that for many it was but a beginning.

Th struggle decided whether or not they could reach port, Exam With steady work, they passed the hurricane area successfully i before, and made possible this landing—the saddest and sweete of moments. Some land only to re-embark on the sea of lif others, after three months shore leave, return to life aboard shi] Either way many will be missing who have made the journi nrnrfnn ' biUi ' 1 Shirley Withers, Class Poet I CLASS POEM We meant to do a thousand things, But days sped by on airy wings, And now we find it’s much too late For we have come to graduate. The steps to knowledge are not so high As first they seemed to freshman eye. As senior pomp is not slow To wail the fact that we must go. Like seeds blown by an idle breeze, We’ll drift along until we seize Some portion of the Mother Earth Where we will prove our honest worth. Down deep within each heart there lies A golden dream of some great prize. A bouyant hope to reach that goal Is deep imbedded in each soul. To those who reach that aim I cry, " Set hearts and hopes beyond on high!” And those who fail? Rebuke them not; They will within blaspheme their lot. We leave our school with mingled feeling; Amid regret, relief is stealing. But ’twould be foolish now to stop; The stairs continue to the top. We will recall the gay, light fun, The numerous carefree things we’ve done; We ll fold and put them all away. For we are more grown up today. CLASS PROPHECY One day while sitting in on my weekly gossip club, we started recalling names of our graduating class of " 52”. It was really quite interesting to find out what some of our old members had been doing or were doing. As in all gossip clubs the bad is told before the good, and this one is no exception. Now I will tell you what was told me, if you promise not to tell a soul. Dayle Phillips, Norman Smith, and Harold Kirkman have set up a new gang of robbers called The Musketeers. They have robbed seven hundred banks, but always escape in their jet heli¬ copter, piloted by Larry Taylor. Chief Detective Donald Blackburn has been working with Chief of Police Frye and his squad—Jack Cox, Jo Bill Haymore, Lewis Brannock, and Bill Coble for months but has received no reward yet. So beware! They may be in your town next. The town is all in whispers about two members of our class who raised a terrible scene on Main Street the other day. It seems as though Sybil Adkins and Beverly Arnder were both driving taxi cabs and hit each other. Well, both said it was the other ' s fault and got into a regular knock down and drag out. But every¬ thing grew calm when Joan Jackson and Flossie Quesinberry, Mount Airy’s first women policemen, came in on the scene and arrested both. Some of the members are making some sort of history in Washington these days. Jack Palmer, Bill Bowman, and MacRae Boyd are the head of the deodorized R. F. C. and have been for the past four years. It appears that another scandal threatened as Millie Westmoreland Palmer, Dottie Perry Bowman, and Lucille King Boyd came in last week wearing baby pink and sky blue ermine coats. President Bill Worth has asked Vice-President Rich¬ ard Creed to call them before a senate investigating committee, headed by the senior senator from North Carolina. Richard Dobson says that plenty will be done about the matter. This was hard for me to believe, but it came from a reliable source. Freddy Dawson has been brought up before court on a bigamy trial. He married not only once but also three times. His wives are Bennie Doggett, Lucy Ellen Gwyn, and Francis Hay- more. Freddy always was girl crazy; as you see, it got him places. Then the conversation drifted into social standings and stations. The first newsy bit of gossip was that the movie actress Jo Ann Newsome is married to the millionaire, Charles Harris. This makes Jo Ann ' s fourth marriage. She was previously married to Charles Montgomery, Bill Bryant, and Roger Simmons. Of course, you all recognize the names of the business tycoons. One of the most recent marriages was that of the bubble dancer Alma Utt and the big time gambler Clyde Williams. The Finch Orchestra played for the affair. The leader, of course, is Bob Finch and the members are Bob Beamer, Jimmy Tilley, Rayburn Wright, Don Stanley, and Willowy Ann Swanson, the soloist. We had one girl in our class that really helped America. She is Juanita Snow; she has all of twenty-five children. The lucky father of these children is Fontaine Reece. As I said the good always follows the bad; the praise then started. I found out that Pat Taylor has become a woman wrestler with Jeanne Gwyn trying to win her title. Some of the other wrestlers are Bobby Haymore, Barbara Jean Goad, Lillian Gunnell, Jerry Jones, and Mac Wood. BERTA GLENN ASHBURN, Class Prophet Then we have some explorers on our list. Betty Jean Trac Jackie Vogler, and Libby Brown, Corinne Sitison, and Dot Tyndt are on a South African expedition. These girls have really goi places. Oh, by the way, the guide is Jimmy Patterson. Some of our social debutantes are Jackie Coleman, Mary Ar Burrus, Betty Collins. Shirlev Withers, Evelyn Snow, Barba Schumaker, and Peggy Gunnell. These ladies made their debu in the Stork Club last Wednesday night. Their escorts were Ca Baber, Carter Fourquerean, Bill Matthews, Don Shaw, Ed Crossin, ham, E. Jarrell, and Dean Bray. Just as conversation was about to cease a late comer brought i a paper and naturally that had to be taken apart and discusse On the front page was a picture of the first woman president Ford Motor Company, Marilyn Blackburn. Vice-president w; Virginia Stuart; Secretary, Mary Nell Segraves; and Treasurer P; Welch. Fords will be better than ever now. A newsy item of interest was that LaVerne Blue and Emil Boyd have been convicted of embezzlement from the First Nations Bank of New York City. The ladies will reside in Sing Sing fc fifty years. The opera, " Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” will be presented i Mount Airy next month by the Coe Company, owned and operate by Pansy Coe. The list of actresses include Barbara Eldridge, Patsi Oliver, and Martha East, Doris McBride, and Mona Faye Hiat The opera will be given in the new opera house that is owne by the famous composer Naomi Hiatt. W hen I was in high school with these people, the famous ha designer was Mr. John. The King Reporter, whose editor is Poll King, states that hats by Mr. Holmes are now the style from Pari to Texas. Mr. Hershal Holmes plans to visit Mount Airy nes week and there is to be a banquet in his honor at the Sarah Neste Country Club. Some outstanding speakers for the occasion ar Betty Lou Hennis, the first woman undertaker; Lynda Georgt the president of Lees McRae College; Marianne Jones, presiden of Catawba College; and Margaret Loville, North Carolina ' s firs woman governor. Due to the recent election of city officials, Norman Smith, Bil Jo Woodruff, and Johnny Marshall, city saloons, like they had ii the " 90 ' s " , can be opened. Some of the lady songbirds are Dori King, Pauline Frye, Carolyn Westmoreland, and Barbara Nichols Ninety-nine members of the senior class were present for gradu ation and only ninety-seven have been mentioned. Naturally yot are wondering what became of the other two. Well, Nancy Reea is president of the Gossip Club, and I am vice-president ant reporter.
