Principars Message Zo Zhe Seniors The elements of knowledge consist of many things. You have sought and obtained many of these yet the road to success is to be found in hard work, religion, and intelligent thinking. The path you have completed now becomes a road that needs your immediate attention. It can lead in many directions, uphill and down, detours , and very few by-passes. Along this road of learning to live, will be found many of the other elements you will need for happiness. Now is the time to devote the knowledge of your former path to the greater things that will confront you. As a graduate of Nebo High School you can ob- tain your place on this road by exerting the basic essentials that your school has contributed, along with the abilities each one has. Some will find the road easier and more successful than others, but remember the contribution you make is going to determine your place on the road. I hope that good fortune and happiness will follow the members of the gra- duating class of 1956 as you find your place in society. High School ' O.

" Pat " EARNEST LAWSON BROWN, JR. Son of Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Brown. " Brownie " THE KEY TO THE PAST Class History As I look back through the years, the spotlight seems to fall on the year of nineteen-hundred forty-three and forty-four, when we entered school for the fir st time . I remember the shyness of some of my class- mates and how hard it was to make friends those first days. Then there was the feeling of satisfaction when those friends were gained and re- mained throughout the years. The most outstanding memory of our primary and grammar years was the presentation of a Tom Thumb Operetta and the day that we sang for a county-wide teachers ' meeting. In those years we gave several plays, but the most remembered one was the " Rosewood Box " , which we com- posed and directed. Those last two years of grammar school we shall never forget, part- icularly the seventh grade, when it was our delight to place ants in our teacher ' s pockets. Thatwas the same year we got the belt used on our pants. When we were eighth graders, we began to learn to appreciate good literature and fine arts. That is when we read " Travels of Richard Halliburton " , and " Treasure Island. " We also enjoyed a great number of poems by Poe and Kipling We finally reached the long awaited day-the first day of High School. We entered with the determination not to be outdone by Upperclassmen. It will have to be admitted that we were a very mischievous group. We did everything from reading our scripture passages every morning to breaking window panes a few moments later. Our freshman advisor was Miss Bobby Jean Gregg. In our Sophomore year we had to study more and take our studies more seriously. Our advisor, Mr. Dickson, also our junior advisor, guided us throughout these two years. In our sophomore class we boasted of hav- ing seven girls and four boys on the basketball teams, five boys on the baseball team and ten in the Beta Club. The highlight of our junior year was our junior play entitled " Fraidy Cat. " This play was full of suspense, laughter, and thrills, and enjoyed by everyone, especially the characters. Another highlight of this year was our Junior -Senior banquet, the setting being in the Spruce Pine Country Club and carrying out the theme of a " Gypsy Caravan. " We had dropped from thirty-six sopho- mores to twenty-four juniors and have gained four new classmates to make a total of twenty-eight seniors. We shall remember these days gone by and our leaders, Nolan Pet- ers, President; Mary Ann Browning, Vice President; Patsy Toney, Sec- retary; Patsy Smith, Treasurer; and Fannie Lou Craig, reporter. We hope to attain our goal of graduation May twenty-fourth, nineteen hundred and fifty-six. We owe much to our principal Mr. E. Lawson Brown, our senior advisor, Miss Rose Stacy, and all of the High School faculty, our parents, and fri- ends, for their advice and guidance throughout the years. It is not with a sorrowful heart that we bid our farewell, but with a heart that ' s light and heads held high in order to face the future.

A bearded prophet. " Old man can you tell me what lies ahead for the class of " 56 " ? I asked. " Yes, my child. How distant a fut- ure glimpse do you want? " " Ten years will do, sir. " " Very well. Look well, but don ' t close your eyes ; for after having closed your eyes, the vision will vanish, " Through a large transparent pane, which he calls the " window of the fut- ure " , I see a gayly decorated room with a large sign over the banquet table pro- claiming " New Year ' s Eve, 1966. " I hear faint strains of " Auld Lang Syne ' and see a mingling group of merry adults with familiar faces. A clock strikes twelve times. The people all loudly welcome 1966. The first face I see is Patsy Smith. She and her husband are telling Benny Potter how they like to live in New Or- leans and about their twin boys. Benny is clad in a Forester ' s uniform for the state of Wyoming. Who in the world is that stately looking woman talking with them? Why that ' s Grace Revis. She has just told Patsy that she owns a chain of restaurants. Another uniform joins the group. It ' s Eugene Rhom as a North Carolina patrolman. How handsome and straight he stands ! And his wife, Dora Lee, is on his arm. Carolyn Terrell and Howard Revis are sitting on a little sofa talking to Flora Burnette and her Teddy. They say that being millionaires in Japan is very exciting. Fannie Lou Craig is gazing intently into the dark, mysterious eyes of a tall handsome Spaniard whose name is Hos- ilito. Fannie is living in Spain , and she and Hosilito are going to be married. Shirley Fox, who now owns Roses ' Dime Store in Marion, is talking to Becky Lamb, a very successful lady in the cosmetic business. Zelda Fender is with her husband. Storm Brown, a famous band leader. They are talking with Cecil Dobson and her wealthy husband. Cecil worked in religious education till she met him and they eloped. Tommy Carter joins the group. I can tell by the stripes on his arm that he is a high ranking naval officer. He tells them that his brother Mike has made ten million dollars pro- specting for uranium. Mike is stand- ing near and talking to a striking blond in a secluded corner. She has a mink stole over her shoulders . Iget a closer look and see her face and find it ' s his wife, Elsie Gardin. Janet Jaynes,the famous authoress, is radiant, but is a little shy as she talks of her success to Kathryn Led- better and Earnest who have made their career the U. S. Air Force. Nolan Peter s , now principal of States - ville Central High, is talking with an- other one of our " 56 " grads, Vincent Revis, who is in the mechanical field. There heis-the rage of the National and M.G. M ' s pride and joy-that hand- some movie star, Clinton Walker. He is standing, the lone male in a bunch of noisy women, and looks rather uncom- fortable. Elaine Vick, our only school teacher, is talking to Mary Ann Browning whois married to a well-noted pediatrician. One of Mary Ann ' s diamond earrings drops off. A gallant Jack Wilson , now a stock car driver, picks it up for her. They are joined by Janet Adams, sec- retary to a big executive. Kenneth Early, a jet test pilot, runs to answer the door bell and admist a late Margaret Pyatte. Even though she is a foreign news correspondent, she still can ' t be on time. Laughingly she talks to Patsy and Homer Toney about her work. Pat and Homer live in San Francisco and own a hotel. But where am I ? At last I spy my- self. I ' m looking into a little black book and talking to a strange man. " But Harry, " I say, " I can ' t play the Old Vick in February, because I ' m booked at the Helen Hayes . . . . but .... there I accidentally closed my eyes and when I opened them the vision was gone. I ' m grateful for my gaze into the future and have been able to relate to you the gay revealing scene I was so fortunate to have experienced. The class of " 56 " will surely be a lucky, wealthy, and colorful group. But how else could it be ? Barbara Hicks, Class Prophet THE KEY TO OUR BEQUESTS Cast Will And Zes lament state of North Carolina County of McDowell City of Nebo We, the graduating class of 1956 of Nebo High School, make these personal be- quests : I, Janet Adams, leave my ability to " tickle " the piano to Shirley Beam. I, Mary Ann Browning, leave my posi- tion as editor of the school paper to Jean Hemphill. I, Flora Burnette, leave my ability to act innocent to Shirley Beam. I, Fannie Lou Craig, do will and be- queath all of my bad habits, including taking my shoes off in every class, to my little sister, Mary Alice.

I, Micah Carter , bequeath my career in the Navy to Ed Davis. I, CecilDobson, am afraid to leave any- thing because I ' ll need all I ' ve got, and more too ! I, Kenneth Early, leave my ability to stay out of trouble to Ed. Davis. I, Zelda Fender, leave my ability to play first string for two years in bas- ketball and win a trophy, to Peggy Queen. I, Shirley Fox, leave my superlative of being the most thoughtful to whoever deserves it. Upon the death of my high school days and having used up everything thathas fallen into my possession since school first started, find I have nothing left except my cheerleading uniform, which is tattered, torn , and worn, a few faded love letters and remnants of past love affairs. All these things which I still hold dear I, Barbara Hicks, wish to divide equally between my beloved cou- sin, Margie Hicks, and my soul -mate, Mary Barton Potter, as tokens of re- membrance of the mad, gay, exciting life I led. I, Janet Jaynes, leave my ability to get by without studying to Dora Lee Black. I, Rebecca Lamb, leave my position on the basketball team to Nancy Pyatte who deserves it more than I do. I, Kathryn Ledbetter, leave my ability to always be dependable to Maxine Peters . I, Margaret Pyatte, leave to Nancy Pyatte the keys to my car; to Barbara Dobson I leave the memories of all the fun we ' ve had together. I, Benny Potter, leave my love to all the girls. 1, Nolan Peters, will my ability to get along with people to Tommy Fender. I, Grace Revis, leave my back seat in bus " 14 " to Bonnie Presnell. Make good use of it, Bonnie. I, Vincent Revis, leave my ability to get into predicaments to whom it may concern. I, Howard Revis, leave my school bus to Mr. Stacy, since I always have bus trouble while he ' s on duty. I, Eugene Rhom, leave my bus and my ability to drive safely to Roy Finley. I, Carolyn Terrell, will my ability to get into mischief while trying to stay out of it to Dorothy Baucom. I, Patsy Toney, leave to Wilma Fender my ability to find all the teachers, when no one else can, especially when I wish to stay out of sight, I, Elaine Vick, will my quiet ways to Priscilla Fender. I, Clinton Walker, just leave Nebo. I, Jack Wilson, leave my safe driving ways to Amberse Barlowe. I, Patsy Smith, was going to leave my willingness to assist, but now that the annual ' s almost ready to be sent to press--it ' s all gone. I ' m tired!
