And to the faculty- Who have labored so earnestly, To see us through the years- We say-"Thanks to you!" As we leave this dear old school- No one can foresee. What the future has in store, For you and for me, We wish you all good luck and happiness- Though all hearts are sad, To our school we say-"Goodbye,- Farewell, dear old High." -MARIAN OWEN Page Seve SLENIUH CLASS UFFIEEPIS MARY MILTON CAMPBELL , . . ......

This class must first advance to be recognized. Back. . .far back in September 1940, fresh in quality, "green" and inexperi- enced, one hundred and fifty soldiers enlisted in the "Newton-Conover Hi" army. In vain they called upon their confused and scanty storehouse of knowl- edge to assist them in that trying ordeal of registration. Soon, however,p,-5-after registering, they found out how to open their lockers and became fairlyi-,well acquainted with the system of changing classes. Led by Battery Commander Dempsey I-Iuitt, these privates marched forward. The girls' basketball team was the Western North Carolina Conference Champion, and the Student Ciovern- ment was organized and sponsored by Colonel Rhyne. In 1941, due to the untiring efforts of General Cuurley and the P. T. A., as well as civilians of Newton and Conover, the supplement for the twelfth grade and ninth month was passed, and new and varied courses were added to the regular curriculum. That year, Dorotha Lou Miller reported for duty as Battery Commander of the soldiers who had received the advanced rating of corporals. Although the girls' basketball team played well, their winning march was halted. After a furlough of about three months, in 1942, these corporals although decreased in number to ninety-two, were commissioned Sergeants. As, they were advanced, they had more work to do, Jimmy Coley was promoted to the rank of Battery Commander to guide them through that Held work. The newly organized band, under Major Warlick's direction, showed surprising progress: and Major Lemon's supervised course of Physical Education became a new requirement. Nineteen forty-three found seventy-five typical, intelligent, lieutenants advancing under the command of Doris Thornburg. An excellent Hi-Life was published semi-monthly. That was not the only responsibility during l943. The responsibility and fun of giving the first Junior-Senior dance was theirs. Of that dance they made a wonderful success. No definite victory was gained through athletics, but the march forward in forensics and debating was remark- able. Due to the war and the lowered draft age, many of our number decided to accept an eleventh grade diploma instead of coming back for the twelfth grade. In 1944, forty Captains, led by Commander Mary Milton Campbell, diligently endeavored to uphold the proverbial senior dignity. The distinguished characteristic of progressiveness was not lacking. This fact was proved as they published the eleventh edition of the CARDINAL. The annual was made pos- sible by selling school supplies and ice cream, and by presenting a play, "Little Acornsf' Now the five years of training in the infantry of Newton-Conover I-Ii are over. These Captains bid the privates, corporals, sergeants, and lieutenants farewell as they, with destination unknown, prepare to embark. JIMMY COLEY, Historian. Page Thirteen LAST WILL ANU TESTAME T We. the Senior Class of '44, of Newton-Conover High School, though frail in body and feeble in mind because of the hard examinations we've had, but revived in spirit and being in a generous mood, do publish and declare this to be our last will and testament: To the superintendent. school board, and members of the faculty, we leave our many thanks for their helpfulness and guidance through our High School days.
