Not as the leaves that fall in the autumn are they forgotten, but as precious milestones in life's history are they remembered. In this, our last year, changes have taken place and prepa- rations have been made for living beyond graduation. Many things have bee-n done to make life more abundant and worth- while. As one of our accomplishments, We have published this volume of The Log. We would like to feel that from this effort some degree of satisfaction and pleasure might be found by those who have been so kind in helping us, for We do owe a debt of gratitude. May this annual hold within its covers a source of pleasant memories of friendship and happy associations.

Teaching has truly been her lifels Work and in it she has invested all of her talents, a keen intellect, a dauntless determination, love of beauty, loyalty, and eagerness to serve. Her patience, kindness, and understanding have helped many children through their first year of school, and her fine Christian character has been an inspiration to those Whose lives she has touched. Miss Mortonis retirement ends her direct contact with boys and girls, but her devoted life to the service will always be uppermost in the minds and hearts of those, Who were privileged to come under her influence. Therefore, were it possible to search deeply into her thoughts, this little prayer no doubt would be discovered: 'The only croscfn I risk, Dear Lord, to wear, Is Htis-that I may help ff little chilrl. I do not ask that I siwuld ever SfCl'I'2,Ul ammzg The wise, thc zatortity or the gireatq I only ask that softly, lzonrl in hcmfl, A CMZJZ and I nmgf entre' nf Thy gate." We regret that this dear friend of ours is leaving us, but We Wish for her many years of happiness and good health, and as a small token of our deepest appreciation and love for her, We, the Class of 1955, dedicate our volume of The Log to her. Page Nine ONE HUNDRED YEARS IN THE LIFE OF NORTH CAROLINA LANDMARK UF A CENTURY -gl- The Main Building on the Oxford Orphanage campus was really the beginning of the Oxford Orphanage, however, in the beginning it was known as "St. John's College." As early as the year 1838 the Grand Lodge of Masons of North Cairo- lina was considering the establishment of a "Masonic Seminary." The year 1850 found the Grand Lodge in position to take definite action as to the location of the school. After deliberation, Oxford, N. C. was chosen. A com- mittee, consisting of John Gray Bynum, John A. Lilllington, and P. H. Winston, was appointed to prepare and publish an address explaining the course of instruction and system of education proposed. The committee urged that something of astromony, natural philosophy, chemistry, geology, electricity, galvanism should be taught, but that a larg- er emphasis should be placed upon architecture, the power of steam, and its application to machinery, various processes of manufactures, metallur- gy, natural history, and engineering. At a time when there were only sixty-five lodges in the state, an agefnt was appointed to solicit funds for the establishment of the college. St. J ohn's College was decided as the name for the new institution. In 1853 E. H. Hicks deeded to the Trustees of St. John's College a tract of land containing 109 acres near the limits of the town of Oxford, the purchase price being 84,480 In 1855 the Trustees awarded to John Berry, of Orange County, the contract for the brick work on the building at a total cost of S11,106, and to J. N. Holt, of Warren County, the contract for the wood-work at S11,394, at a total cost of 822,500 On June 24, 1855, the anniversary of the birth of St. John the Baptist, the cornerstone of the structure was laid with appropriate ceremonies by the Grand Lodge. Report was made by the Trustees of the College to the Grand Lodge in December 1857, that the building had been completed at a cost of 323,000 and that 313,000 of this amount was still unpaid. The doors of the College were opened July 13, 1858, with Prof. Ashbel G. Brown, a distinguished educator, in charge, and Mr. James Campbell, assistant. The institution was for male students only. An arrangement was made with Professor Brown which promised mutual advantage. The man- agement of the institution was changed several times without result and the troubles of the college never came to an end. In 1860 it was suggested that St. J ohn's College at this time be made a military school, and again, as Page Eleven ' ' gum ' 5ef:f?1 li, ' A f5?5f'.e: . 354, r-Q.. ' Q , ' ,- .

At the close of the War, Mr. John H. Mills, who Was conducting a fel- male school in Oxford, made arrangements to move into the building and had contemplated purchasing the same. He abandoned the idea, and in 1868 the property was sold undera mortgage held by Capt. John Berry and was bought by the Grand Lodge of Masons for the sum of 37,000 An ef- fort was made at the close of the school in 1871 to arrange for re-opening or to lease the property. These failed and a caretaker moved into the build- ing until further disposition could be made. Thus the story of St. John's College closed in a record of failure, but not until the Masons of the State' had placed themselves in the ranks of the pioneers of education in North Carolina. In 1872 there was a tie in the casting of votes to sell the building and Grand Master John Nichols gave the deciding vote against the sale. Thei question, "What shall we do with it?", then arose but remained undecided. Mr. John H. Mills, who may be called, the "Father of the Orphanage," in- troduced a resolution to convert St. John's College, now called the Main Building, into an orphanage, and in ten minutes the resolution was carried by a unanimous vote and Mr. Mills was placed in charge of the Work. He soon received the most earnest support of the Whole Masonic Fraternity and the Work was so successfully done that the State, contrary to all prece- dents, appropriated 2B5,000 per year to the orphanage as no difference was made between Masonic and non-Masonic orphans. During the first year of the orphanage's existence, eighty-four children were admitted. In the eleven years while Mr. Mills was Superintendent, he built a home for the children but there were many days Wihen the bot- tom of the flour barrel had to be scraped and many times the last stick of wood was put into the little stove to keep the children as comfortable as possible While the cold wind whistled around the building. Would it be possible to find another building similar in size to this Main Building that has served such a useful purpose? There are four stories and each has made a very definite contribution to the life of the orphanage. There was a time when the superintendent lived in a part of the build- ing, for there was no other provision for living quarters, there Was also a, time when a large number of smaller children lived in this building, for there was no other cottage for them. At the present time many of the teach- ers of the John Nichols School reside in this building, as Well as several other lady members of the staff. After the erection of the John Nichols School building, which was first used in 1925, the second and third floors of the Main Building were remodeled, thus, rooms were arranged for mem-- bers of the staff.

On the first floor are the case worker's office, the post office, recep- tionist's office, "candy corner", chapel, teachers, parlors, reading room, supply room, and childrenls visitors' room. Since the decision was made to convert St. John's College into the Ox- ford Orphanage, there have been nine superintendents: Mr. John H. Mills, Rev. B. F. Dixon, Rev. J. T. Harris, Dr. W. S. Black, Mr. M. Lawrence, Col. W. J. Hicks, Mr. L. Brown, Rev. C. K. Proctor, and Rev. A. D. Leon Gray. For a century this building has played a very vital part in the life of all the students, as Well as staff niernloers. 1855-1955 Page Thirteen ff . ,X l?lf+f- .:2Ja5,g?53fii:g"r 'rrr' 'J 2 J, if ,fy llf,QQi,1'f .,Y Yrfz Fair' -1,32-Q f ......-.t:..M- Q J!

STRAWBRIDGE Strawbridge Studio Durham, N. C. How much happiness this fine, Masonic friend, Mr. J. E. Straw- bridge, has given the children of the Oxford Orphanage! We are deeply grateful to him for his very generous gift of photography. Through his visits on the campus, every child from the youngest in the Dunn Building through those of the senior class knows and loves him, and from all, we would say "Thank you, Mr. Strawbridge, for your kindness and love.

N - Five years ago two most congenial young people, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Marsh, came to the Oxford Orphanage as members of the staff. During their stay they have won the love and admiration of all on the campus. In a most efficient and capable manner, they have served as counselor in Fourth Boys, Cottage ,and as members of the faculty of the John Nichols School: Mr. Marsh, as eighth grade teacher, while Mrs. Marsh has taught typing and short- hand, in addition to being secretary to the principal, Mr. E. T. Regan. Due to Mr. Marsh's decision to accept work in a more ad- vanced position, they, with their two lovely little daughters, will leave us at the close of the school. We shall miss the pleasant association that has existed, but they will be remembered for their loyal and sincere devotion to duty, their friendliness, and kindly spirit of coopeartion. Their influence has truly been most uplifting. Even though we deeply regret their leaving, we do extend to them our very best wishes for happiness and success, and we want them to know that for them, the "latch string will always hang outside."

Each incident, each happening, each day and each year, make up links in our past, and we like to think of each link as a part of a golden chain in our history. The first links added each year were our officers. In our green, green days When We first entered high school. Jack Barger presided with his as- sistants, Billy Walton as vice-president, Ruby Anderson as secretary, and Jimmy Wyke as treasurer. During our sophmore year Clare Regan was chosen as president. Clare soon showed us she was quite efficient and when it came to presiding and leading the class in all its activities We found it difficult to impeach her from office. For her assistants Eoline Provost was chosen to be vice-presi- dent, Mary Willis as secretary, and Archie Capps as treasurer. Clare Regan Was chosen as our leader during our junior year. Ruby Anderson was vice-president, Eoline Provost, secretary, and Jack Barger was our treasurer. In our last year Clare, again was president, with Eoline Provost as vice-president, Archie Capps as secretary, and Bennie Harris as treasur- er. We are truly proud of these officers Who have served us so well. Each was strong and good as gold. I must not forget to add these names: Mr. Talton, Mr. Austell, Miss Pender, Mr. Currin, Miss Salls, Mrs. Blackwell, and Mrs. Ligon. Without the help of these our golden chain would have been very Weak indeed. And now I must write of our annual, The Log. We Want to express our gratitude to Mrs. Ligon for her guidance and help in the preparation of our annual for without her guidance and help, we, a very inexperienced group in publishing a book, would have had a never-forgotten unlucky time. We would also like to acknowledge Jack Barger's assistance. He was The Log's editor this year and the best. Our Log has made a strong link in our chain of history. The "moving finger" now Writes of the sports in which our class has participated. Jack Barger and Charles Gibbs led our football squad this year. We weren't on top but the class and school spirit was high, and it appeared the team was not only playing for personal achievements but for the honor of John Nichols School. While Jack and Charlie led the team. Bennie Harris and Ruby Anderson led the spectators in the cheers of our school. Each received a pin for her Work. Our boys were Wonderful in baseball this year. Charlie Was catcher, and co-captain along with Archie Capps, while Jack umpired home games. One of the happiest events of our senior year was the Junior-Senior prom. We were the guests of the juniors who had the room decorated to Page Forty-seven '--I'-- 2- P W' ,.: - . H: .Q' :T3:..g-uTx.:n-5,-ef-.

J carry out the theme of Gay Paree. Pat Hedgepeth and his orchestra fur- nished the music and it was simply wonderful. The "moving fingern writes of the senior play- "Where's Grandma ?" I think the whole school thoroughly enjoyed this play but most of all, We, the seniors, enjoyed putting it on. And now I must write of the "golden glow", the bright lights of our class. The ones who have won fame and honor by being the winners of speeches and contests. During the junior year Clare Regan won honorable mention IH the Girls' Recitation Contest. The same year Janice Moore was the winner of the Patriotic Speaking Contest. This year Clare Regan won the Oxford Kiwanis Medal in the Senior Recitation-Declamation Contest, also Oxford Orphanage Medal in the Girls' Recitation Contest. Clare also won the Claude O. Abernathy Award presented annually to the student ex- celling in scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and sportsmanship .Archie Capps won honorable mention in the Boys' Declamation Contest. Bennie Harris won honorable mention in the World Peace Contest also the Girls' Recitation Contest. Shelby Adams won honorable mention in the Seniors' Recitation-Declamation Contest. These seniors have certainly made a very bright glow in our class and have added a strong link to our golden chain. In concluding our history, I have recorded every word. The golden thread is unbroken. The seniors are on their way down the path of gold, with Clare Regan as valedictorian and Eolinei Provost as salutatorian. Our flower is the rose, but we do not expect roses always to be ours for we realize there must be thorns also. This part of our history is ended, but now a beginning for our little mascot, Cabell Regan, who will start his school days next year. To him we leave our love and every good wish for the best. These things I have written and stamped with the golden seal of the class.

GOLD NUGGETS - ay - We, the senior class of 1955, of John Nichols High School ,make public our last will and testament. During our interesting and profitable years here we have collected many valuable treasures, both tangible and intangible. To us they are nuggets of gold. We do not wish to bury our treasures as Uncle Sam has his gold at Fort Knox. We wish to use our nuggets as a medium of exchange, so in leaving the school we are going to bestow some of them on our school, the faculty, and our friends. Of course, we shall take along our own pot of gold to sfpend along the golden pathway of our lives. But we are very generous and rich so we shall share some of our nuggets. NUGGET I: To our alma mater, we bequeath our gratitude and deepest affection for all the golden opportunities she has given us during our years here. NUGGET II: To our principal, Mr. Regan, we bequeath pleasant memories 'of this brilliant senior class. May there be many stars in his crown for his part in opening the golden door for us. NUGGET III: To Mrs. Ligon, we bequeath all our good luck for her advice in the producing of our annual. Also to Mrs. Ligon, our sponsor, we bequeath a golden key so that she may open all the doors of success and happiness in the years to come. NUGGET IV: To the junior class, we bequeath a pot of golden nuggets so they can pay their senior debts next year without having to use our various schemes to raise money. NUGGET V: To the sophomore class, we bequeath our ability to bluff the teach- ers and make excuses for unprepared lessons. NUGGET VI: To the freshmen, we bequeath all the gold dust which we are able to shake off our clothes after this program so they can have magic in holding their own with the Sophs. next year. NUGGET VII: We bequeath the following little nuggets to these individuals: 1. Hazel Powell wills to Betty Lou Dickerson all of her writing ability and hopes she has as much success writing Terry as she did Jimmy. To Nancy Wilson, Hazel wills her license to drive that new car without getting caught with illegal ones. 2. Archie Capps leaves to Sam, his kid brother, his bed in 3-B and hopes Sam will some day be long enough to stretch from the head to the foot, which Archie couldn't do. 3. Jack Barger wills to Mary Ann Hicks. and to all of the other poor girls in need, his book of secrets on "How to Have Curly Hair" and a second book on "How to Keefp Curly Hair Once You Get It." 4. Janice Moore leaves to Betty Jean her ability to get out of everything and into everything at the same time. 5. Margie Westbrook leaves her nice comfortable bed to Barbara Walton in hopes that she will use the squeaking board at night. 6. Betty Lou Wilson wills to Nancy Nethercutt her thirty vegetable house girls and her place as chief stooge in the kitchen. 7. Jo Ann Adcock leaves to Nellie Beasley her ability to tell secrets over the tele- phone with her mother in the room, and her mother never suspecting anything. 8. Ruby Jean Nethercutt wills to Steve her pencil stubs so that he can write her arid toyher three little sisters, her loving ways to get along with teachers, especially ' ear. 9 .Since Ovis Gibbs has been so dull for the last ten years, Shelby Adams has come to the final decision that "Aggie" needs a companion: therefore, she plans to leave "Aggie" the one-eyed cat, Polyphemus, so she may have some fun during the next year.

To Joan Powell, Bennie Harris leaves her portion of the 4-G front steps where Betty Jean Truitt, Marie Sheffield, and she have enjoyed the past Saturdays and Sun- days discussing their favorite topic: BOYS. 18. Jo Ann Adams wills to Hazel Beatrice Strum and Gladys Hill her place beside the TV set every afternoon and hopes that they can enjoy it and still get their lessons ufp well enough for class the next day. 19. Ernestine Harrison leaves to Janie her sense, even though Janie doesn't need it. 20. Jo Ann Mitchell leaves to Mary Gail Morrow her old work coat which Mary Gail wore all winter anyway. NUGGET VIII: To everyone interested in this dear old school from which we are about to depart, we bequeath a portion of our loyalty to our school, our community, our state, our nation, and to our God. May this school prosper in spite of the absence that we leave behind. NUGGET IX: Coming to the conclusion of our will, we have obtained permission from the F B I for our dear friend, Mr. Thomas R. Adams, to buy himself a new radar set, since his old one has been playing jokes on him. Finally, we hereby appoint our dear friend, Miss Bertha Hobson, to be the sole ex- ecutor of this, our last will and testament, and if any of our old possessions have been overlooked, she is hereby authorized to put them up at public auction and use the pro- ceeds to pay for a monument to be placed on the main campus in our everlasting mem- ory. In witness whereof we, the class of 1955, set our signature and seal on this the 27th day of May in the year of 1955, and deduct ample income tax from the remaining store of nuggets.

On this path, the seniors, rejoicing and happy, make their way. They are busy with their daily occupations, professions, and trades. This is the future-this vision of mine. I am looking into the year 1965. I turn my globe to Creedmoor, North Carolina. There I see Leroy Dixon practising law, and let me tell you, he isn't doing any better than he did when he was "Midnight" fussing with "Dahlia", in the senior play. I see doctors and nurses on this path of gold. Do you remember Glow Eoline Provost wanted so much to be a nurse? Well, she has gone beyond her hopes. She is now a famous brain surgeon at Mayo's Clinic. She ranks among the leading surgeons of the country and has saved many lives. Can you re-call that curly headed Shelby Adams? She is Dr. Provost's nurse. Imagine that! We all thought she would be the first to get married, but I guess she is going to be an old maid. Now let's look over the mountains into the West. Here I see Archie Capps and Ernestine Harrison. They have married and are living on their dude ranch. They are growing prosperous entertaining, as paying guests, their eastern friends. Incidentally, they got the ranch while appearing on Charlie Gibbs' T. V. program. tHe took Herb Shriner's place.J I see the home of Rock Hudson. He has recently employed a new secres tary-Jo Ann Adams. That name is familiar, isn't it? Over to the right is a billboard advertising pepsi cola. What a beauti- ful young lady! It's Jo Ann Mitchell! They couldn't have found a beftter and more attractive advertisement. Let's get a paper as we pass. Look! Here on the society page is a pic- ture of Ruby Anderson. She and Jack Barger are starring in the "Life Story of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Davis". Their experience in the senior play was a great help. I am sure the picture will be very successful. There's a beautiful white yacht in the Pamlico Sound. They say it be- longs to the heiress of the Harris Fortune- Bennie Harris. With her on Page Fifty-one f f?

No doubt Betty Lou will give a concert at Vandemere, Bennie's home town. Ruby Jean Nethercutt is playing the role of Mrs. Stephen Faucette in excellent style, living in Oxford. Another classmate has married-Hazel Powell. She and her husband are to be missionaries in Africa. We wish you the best, Hazel. Some of our classmates remained in Oxford and it seems that they are doing well. I see Jo Ann Adcock pushing a carriage down College Street. Don't get excited! It is full of groceries. Well, what do you think! Clare Regan is now Superintendent of the Oxford Orphanage. Supt. A. D. Leon Gray and Assistant Superintendent, Mr. E. T. Regan, are vacationing in St. Petersburg, Florida, having been granted leaves of absence. Jimmy Faucette! He has his own orchestra. He has traveled far down the path of gold and has won considerable recognition with his troupe which he calls the MUSIC MASTERS. No wonder he has become famous for he always starts his program with the "Alma Materv. Margie Westbrook really is in society. Her last date was with Julius La Rosa. Speaking of Julius reminds me of Virginia Dean's unfortunate ex- perience. She has again been "fired" from the Arthur Godfrey show. Now that I have had information of my classmates, I, too, shall join them as they pass along the path of gold. Page Fifty-two - -f 1 -Tr fif?

A wandering minstrel am I, With my harp, my harp of gold. I happily walk the road along And sing of the days of old: Of friends and teachers and carefree youth, Of lessons taught by slide and rule, Of lessons learned from fact and truth. Hark to the song of my golden harp, List to the message of its strings- It speaks to us of many things: Of games and football weather, November sharp, Of shouts and rahs and victory clatter, Of classes, chapel, and whistle calls, Of laughter gay and light-hearted chatter, And happy voices echoing down the halls. Harp of the South, Harp of the North, Harp of our high school days, Seniors today, tomorrow we go forth, Down new and strange highways, Strange highways, walking together, Living in harmony with one another, Striving to achieve by earnest endeavor- Lending a hand to a needy brother. O harp of gold, harp of gold, Let your music swell and rise and rise Until it lifts the hearts and glorifies The spirit of this dear senior class. May your melodies ever help us unfold The dreams of our lives as this way we pass, So all as one will serve life's needs For active faith and truth and noble deeds, Harp of gold, Harp of gold!

In spite of the fact that the Red Devils were outweighed man to man, they put up a great struggle. Patterson and Harper were the main drivers for the "Blackbirds" while Jack Barger was the outstanding player for the "Orphans" on both defense and offense. RED DEVILS vs. HAW RIVER September 17 After tasting defeat in the first game of the season, the Red Devils triumphed over Haw River by a score of 24 to 0, on the Daniel Memorial Field. Halfback, Wilton Smith, led the "Orphans' ", rally by scoring three touchdownsg Jack Barger scored the other. This was one of the best games the Red Devils played all season. The outstanding backs for the Red Devils were Wilton Smith and Jack Barger, while Odis Hutchins and Leroy Dixon were the best linesmen. OXFORD ORPHANAGE vs. GRAHAM September 24 The Graham "Red Devils" rolled over the Orphanage "Red Devils" 19 to 0. It was a hard fought battle but the "Orphans" just couldn't hit paydirt. Jerry Robinson, speedy tailback, was the spark-plug for Graham. He passed to Young for a touchdown and ran one over. Rex Moser, fullback, tallied for the last one. The "Orphans" fought desperately to score, almost succeeding, but due to lack of time the threat ended. Out- standing for Oxford were Co-Captain Jack Barger and Bobby Bradshaw. RED DEVILS vs. HENDERSON October 1 After losing a hard battle against Graham, the Red Devils took on the Henderson "Bulldogs", Homecoming. The first quarter of the game neither team could score. Early in the second quarter, Jack Barger threw a pass to Charlie Gibbs for the first score of the game. The extra point was no good. Nearing the last of the second quarter, Charles Johns-on made a long run around end for the "Bulldogs' " first score. The extra point was good. The "Orphans" took the kick-off but just could not gain the necessary yardage and had to punt. The punt was blocked and Henderson took over. Redding tossed a pass to Charles Johnson for their second score. In the third quarter the "Orphans" received the ball and drove to the ten yard line, and on the next play, Wilton Smith took off around end for a touchdown. The score stood 13 to 12 in favor of the "Bulldogs". The "Bulldogs" scored two more times in the last quarter to set a score of 25 to 12. RED DEVILS vs. OXFORD HIGH October 8 The Red Devils lost their third straight Conference game to Oxford High Friday, October 8, on the Daniel Memorial Field. This was one of the games the Orphanage really wanted to win. Every boy gave it all he had, but just couldn't hit pay dirt until the third quarter. The "Orphans" took the kick-off and drove to their own 45 yard line. The next play from scrimmage, Wilton Smith zoomed off tackle for 55 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was made by Marvin Smith on a line plunge. The game ended by a score of 31 to 7 in favor of Ox- ford High. Page One Hundred Twenty-two , , , V ,-,N ., .

The "Counts" scored twice in the second quarter and led at the half, 19 to 0. The third quarter was the "Counts" too. They rolled up another touchdown. I guess "dem ole devils" was just getting started in the last quatrer. Bill Herrington in- tercepted two passes for gains of about 45 yards and Jack Barger faded for a pass and cou1dn't find a receiver so he galloped for 45 yards around end. The 'fCounts" took over again and took it over for another T. D. ending the game by a score of 26 to 0. OXFORD ORPHANAGE vs. METHODIST ORPHANAGE October 21 This bruising battle was strictly a rugged defensive struggle until midway of the third quarter. Oxford Orphanage recovered a Methodist fumble on the 22 yard line and quarterback, Jack Barger, galloped around end on number 16 for the first score. The extra point was no good, making the score 6 to 0, in favor of the Devils. With but five minutes remaining in the last quarter, the Red Raiders began a 50 yard march and took it over for their score. The extra point was good, making the score 7 to 6 in favor of the Raiders. Methodist kicked of to Oxford and the ball was returned to the 28 yard line. Due to the penalties, the Devils were set back on the 1 yard line. By gambling on long passes the Raiders took over and for no apparent reason, the Raiders kicked a field goal and ended the game by a score of 10 to 6. RED DEVILS vs. HILLSBORO October 29 J. C. Hicks led Hillsboro by scoring twice in the first quarter and one time in the third quarter. For the Red Devils, Jack Barger threw a 60 yard pass to Charlie Gibbs for one score and Wilton Smith made a 55 yard dash for the other score. Both the extra points were good. From the score, I guess this game was one of the off-nights for the Devils. The game ended by a score of 38 to 14, in favor of Hillsboro. Jack Barger and Leroy Dixon looked best on defense, while Wilton Smith and Jack Barger were best on offense. RED DEVILS vs. ROXBORO ROCKETS November 5 The Red Devils lost one of their hardest fought games to Roxboro Friday, Novem- ber 5, at Roxboro. The first three quarters of play were nothing but struggle. One team would get the ball and then have to punt. In the fourth quarter of the game the Rockets finally broke loose with a touchdown and extra point. Bill Strum threw a pass to Jim Edwards in the end zone for the score. The Red Devils took the kick-off and tried to score in the re- maining minutes but just couldn't. The score remained 7 to 0, in favor of Roxboro. RED DEVILS vs. CHAPEL HILL November 12 The Oxford Orphanage Red Devils closed their football season-by defeating Chapel Hill 14 to 7. The first half was a great struggle, but with good running by Jack Barger and Wilton Smith the 'fOrphans" led 7 to 0. The second half was tight, too, but with good blocking and running by the backs the "Orphans" won the game. The second Red Devil' score came in the last quarter. Wilton Smith scampered off tackle for 65 yards and the extra point was good. The outstanding backs were Jack Barger and Wilton Smith, while Terry Johnson and Odis Hutchins were the best linesmen.

GIRLS' ATHLETICS o Although there have been no major changes in the girls' physical education program, we have attempted to institute a few changes. An athletic council was organized with officers and class representatives being elected by the two physical education classes. This council met and a list of rules to be observed by the group and the penalties for failure to comply with the rules were drawn up. These rules were discussed by all the physical educa- tion students and unanimously adopted. All infractions of these rules are to be handled by the students. Two class periods are held each school day, one in the early afternoon and the other after school is out. Having two classes enables practically every high school girl on the campus to participate in the girls' athletic program. During the early fall the girls enjoyed playing softball. As the weather grew chilly we turned to the more active games of soccer and speedball. It soon became too cold to remain outside, so we held a speedball tournament, which was won by the early afternoon class, and then moved our classes into the Masonic Hall. Obtaining several mattresses for the sake of safety, the girls began to learn many acrobatic and tumbling tricks. Before the basketball season be- gan, we also learned some folk dances, square dance steps, and a new social dance. In December, we drifted into our major winter sport, basketball. After mastering the rules and techniques, we began to have class games. We have enough girls for eight teams, and soon we will begin our round robin double elimination tournaments. During these games, all the girls will have their chance to act as official referees, timers, scorers, and coaches. As the school year progresses we shall also play volleyball, more softball, acrobatics, and perhaps introduce a new sport. One day each week is set aside for the study of health. , "2 's --:ag 52- " u 6011131111 14111 11211 211 Z linfg i I I I I !

Ice cream par- ties and watermelon feasts were also en- joyed by the students, and, of course, movie privileges were given to the older boys and girls. We feel that all of our activities in the girls' physical education department are important, but the most important things we are learning in our classes and group activities are sportsmanship, teamwork, and the building of character in each student. We are delighted with our girls' ath- letic facilities, but like everyone else on the campus, we are eagerly looking for- ward to the completion of our new gym- nasium and the even finer facilities it will have to offer.

Barbara Barger to Betty Jean Moore: "My in toeing grow nail hurts!" Newton Wilder: "I can't understand why it is, sir, that a man's hair turns gray quicker than his beard or mus- tachef' Mr. Currin: "Oh, that's very simple, his hair has a 20-year start on his whiskers." The telephone in the kitchen hall rang. Ernestine Harrison and I raced across the dining room to the phone. Ernestine won and this was the conversation I heard. Ernestine: "Orphanage kitchen." Mr. Gray: "Who is this speaking?" Ernestine: "Me." A boy was riding down the road on a motorcycle with his shirt blowing every- where. He turned the shirt around be- cause it had no buttons. Later on he got sleepy and ran into a tree. A man came along to help him, then another one came along and said, "Leroy, is the man dead?" His reply, "Well, when I got here he was alive, but when I turned his head around he died." Hazel: fcity girly "Where are you go- ing?" Jimmy fcountry boyj "Fishing" Hazel: "Can I go?"

Page One Hundred Thirty-four The dining room girls always do the things the head girl says, and this is just one instant that happened between dining room girl, Barbara Hensley, and head girl, Shelby Adams. Shelby: 4'Barbara, what in this world are you doing?" Barbara: "Nothin'." Shelby: " What are you doing down there?" Barbara: "Nothin'." Shelby: "Come here then." Barbara: "Can't." Shelby: "Why can't you ?" Barbara: "Cause you told me to go get stuck some where and this molasses bar- rel's the only thing that's good enough to stick me." Some of the seniors had gone to Dur- ham to give a pint of blood. As Janice came out of 4G., she met one of the Roy- ster Building girls who said: "Janice, did you have your blood out today?" Delores Chappell hopped on the bus to the Shrine Bowl Game and trod smack down on James Strum's foot. "Delores", he said coldly, "I will ask you to kindly get off my foot." "Put your foot where it belongs", she replied shortly. "Don't tempt me, Girl, don't tempt me," he murmured. Jimmy Faucette: "Mr. Talton, I can't take that geometry test today, because my toothaehe is aching." Teacher: "Jack, give me a sentence using the Word mystery." Jack: "I mystery words on spelling today." Janice Moore accidentally sat on a piano keyboard. Listening to the awful noise, she exclaimed: "H'm, two octaves! I'll have to reduce!" The bottle of perfume that Willie sent Was highly offensive to Millicent. Her thanks were so cold That they quarreled, I'm told, Through that silly scent Willie sent Millicent.
