Page Seven F MR. FRANK W. SPEED Page Eightj ,, W7 IN MEMOHIAN 6 0 0 6,06.00.0 In the passing of Mr. Frank W. Speed, the Oxford Orphan- age, its staff of workers, and children have lost a friend sin- cere and true. In his quiet and unassuming manner, he was most conscientious, cooperative, and devoted to the service of the institution, and on the campus, his patience, kindness, and genial spirit will ever be linked with his name. Beyond Life's Dim Horizon Beyond life's dim horizon Is a happy, peaceful land Where travelers are welcomed By a loving, outstretched hand, And every weary traveler Finds a wonderful new li fe That's free from every heartache And every care and strife. For here he meets the Master And his heart is filled with peace- Beyond life's dim horizon Where his joys will never cease. Page Nine Page TGI? ELIZABETH' WOODRUFF IN APPRECIATION O 0 6 4.64.4009 The unrichment of lives should be one of the chief aims of a counselor. This was truly the keynote of the life and activi- ties of Mrs. Elizabeth Woodruff, while a member of the OX- ford Orphanage staff. She became counselor of Fourth Girls Cottage on August 15, 1943, and remained in that position un- til her retirement, June 1, 1957. During those years she guid- ed and inspired the older girls on the campus. She ever sought to imbue "her girls" with a spirit of in- tegrity, honor, thoughtfulness for others, true politeness, un- selfish devotion to duty and a real appreciation of beauty and the finer things of life. Those who have had the pleasure and privilege of associat- ing With Mrs. Woodruff feel that her efforts have paved the Way and opened many doors to a fine type of Womanhood. Still alert and delightfully youthful in attitude, she is en- joying her retirement and the visiting in the homes of her four fine children: Martha Sue, in Charlotteg Frances, in Concord, Billy, in Winston-Salem, Rebecca, in Durham, and David, who is an Episcopal rector in Asheboro. , Page -Eleven Page Twelve Millan vist with Mrs. K.

Robinson came to the Oxford Or- phanage as counselor for the First Boys Cottage. At that time, there were many of the smaller boys as well as many who were in high school living in the cottage. From the beginning, she proved herself most capable and efficient in the work. Hundreds of boys have gone forth into the world and have become some of the best and finest citizens to be found any- where. From all who have lived under her supervision, praises will flow for now that they have grown into manhood, they are most appreciative and conscious of her untiring interest in them in their earlier days. Her influence for the right sure- ly will live on in the hearts and minds of those with whom she was associated . In the last several years, the children in her cottage were within a particular age limit of younger boys. They loved and respected her. Having been a mother of two outstanding sons, she knew and understood boys, and tried to direct their steps toward a richer and more abundant life. She retired November 30, 1957. In her retirement we wish for her much happiness all along the Way. Page Thirteen A LANDMARK IN THE LIFE UF NORTH CAROLINA-1855-1958 ST. JOI-IN'S' COLLEGE ORTHE MAIN BUILDING J As early as the year 1838 the Grand Lodge of Masons of North Caroiina was considering the establishment of a "Ma- sonic Seminaryu. The year 1850 found the Grand Lodge in po- sition to take definite action as to the location of the school. After deliberation, Oxford, N.C. was chosen. A committee con- sisting of John Gray Bynum, John A. Lillington, and P. H. Winston, was appointed to prepare and publish an address ex- plaining the course of instruction and system of education proposed. The committee urged that something of astronomy, natur- al philosophy, chemistry, geology, electricity, and galvanism should be taught, but that a larger emphasis should be placed upon architecture, the power of steam and its application to machinery, various processes of manufactures, metallurgy, natural history, and engineering.- At a time when there were only sixty-five lodges in the state, an agent was appointed to solicit funds for the estab- lishment of the college. St. John's College was decided as the name for the institution. In 1853 E. H. Hicks deeded to the Trustees of St. John's College a tract of land containing 109 acres near the corpo- rate limits of the town of Oxford. The purchase price was 334,480 In 1855 the Trustees awarded to John Berry, of Orange County, the contract for the brick work on the building at S11,106, and to J. N. Holt, of Warren County, the contract for the wood-work at 311,394, at a total cost of 322,500 On June 24, 1855, the anniversary of the birth of Saint John the Baptist, the corner stone 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 dimensions of this building areinteresting: "The build- ing is 122 feet by 40 feet, the center is 63 feet, is four stories and a basement, contains 53 dormitories, a Chapel 40 feet by 60 feet, four recitation rooms, two society rooms and other rooms for chemical and other purposes. The four rooms suited for the accommodations of professors were provided each with a fire-place. A spacious chapel was provided, with a gallery around it, capable of seating conveniently 1200 persons." The doors of the College were opened July 13, 1858, with Prof. Ashbell G. Brown, a distinguished educator, in charge, 'Page Fifteei and Mr. James Campbell, assistant. The institution was for male students only. The management of the institution was changed several times without result and the troubles of the College never came to an end. It was converted from one type of school to another, without success. In 1860 it was suggested that St. John's College be made a military school, and as the war broke out, the College sus- pended its operations. At the close of the war, Mr. John H. Mills, who was con- ducting a female 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 under mortgage held by Capt. John Berry and was bought by the Grand Lodge of Masons for the sum of S7,000. An ef- fort was made in 1871 to arrange for re-opening or to lease the property. This 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 cast the deciding vote against the sale. The 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" introduced a resolution to convert St. John's College, 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. Since the conversion of St. John's College into the Main Building, or the Orford Orphanage, as known then, there have been nine superintendents: Mr. John H. Mills, Reverend B. F. Dixon, Reverend J. T. Harris, Dr. W. S. Black, Mr. N. M. Lawrence, Col. W. J. Hicks, Mr. R. L. Brown, Reverend C. K. Proctor, and Reverend A. D. Leon Gray. The Main Building, for over eighty years, was the center of life for the Oxford Orphanage. There was a time when the superintendent lived in a part of the building, for there was no other provision for living quarters, there was also a time when a large number of small- er children lived in this building, for there was no cottage for them, there was the time when it provided the only class- rooms for school, for John Nichols School was not completed until 1925. After the school was moved to the new building, the second and third floors were remodeled for rooms for the lady members of the staff. Page Sixteen On the first floor, one would find offices for the case Work- er, and in former days, that of the lady Supervisor, Miss Net- tie N. Bemisg the post office, children's visitor's room, read- ing rooms for the staff, "the candy corner," and parlors. The chapel was a most important and only auditorium for years. Here ,thousands throughout the years, enjoyed various pro- grams and assemblies. Religious training given and received in this one room has Without doubt placed its stamp on Wor- thy citizenship in North Carolina. The fourth floor, when no longer required for living con- ditions, was used as storage space for clothing, until the Duke Building was erected, than this department was transferred. This Main Building no longer exists in material form, but there are memories associated With it that will long be cherished. Often one is lauded for his life of service and good deeds. This building is deserving of similar praise, in its Way, for it has made pess ble the means for greater contributions and finer development of the boys and girls in the Oxford Or- phanage. Here cliaraclcr has been built and lasting friendship made! Page Seventeen ST. JOHN'S COLLEGE OR THE MAIN BUILDING LAYING OF SECOND CORNERSTCNE 49 1955 June 24, US Main Buildi "U 9-3 UQ rn Z!

Regan in the principal's office-a position which he had held for fourteen years. Since his duties as as- sistant superintendent of the Oxford Orphanage required full time, it was necessary that another principal be elected. From the many applications that Were filed in the City Superintendent's office, John Nichols School was most for- tunate in having Mr. Thomas B. Currin elected as Mr. Regan successor. Previously, he had been a member of the faculty, thus, he already had a secure reputation, but as the school term, 1957-1958 ends, he continues to be thought of as a Most Cooperative, Christian Gentleman.

REGAN Assistant Supertintendent of Oxford Orphanage Page 'Twenty-Six IN APPRECIATION O 0 6 0.00.9000 Thank you, Mr. Regan! When one has most efficiently filled so many positions in the life of the Oxford Orphanage, it is not easy to find Words to express the appreciation and gratitude he so richly deser- ves. Think of the experience he has had! And how varied! Yet he has found in each something he has enjoyed and found re- warding. Variety makes life interesting, consequently, it is doubtful that Mr. Regan found many dull moments. Having graduated from Elon College, he soon became a member of the Orphanage staff. Indeed, he has had the oppor- tunity to learn about boys and girls, for since 1929, he has held these positions on the campus: coach of all boys' athlet- ics, cottage counselor, Sunday school superintendent, high school teacher, director of the athletic program for the chil- dren, principal of John Nichols School, and now, full-time As- sistant Superintendent of the Oxford Orphanage. Mr. Regan succeeded Mr. D. S. Johnson in 1943 as princi- pal of the John Nichols School, previously, he had taught in the high school department. In this capacity, he Won the ad- miration and esteem of his teachers and pupils. Each knew he was a friend . It is true that he is now in another office, but at the same time, members of the faculty and children in the classrooms can be assured of his very keen interest in the Welfare of the school. For all that he has meant to the school and continues to mean, we are deeply grateful, and Wish for him much satis- faction in his service, for "Service is the noble proof of a noble lifef' Page Twenty-Seven Miss BETSY BURNETTE Louisburg College Typing and Shorthand Secretary to the Principal MRS.

Ligon a mem- b 1' of the teaching staff at John Nichols High School, located on the campus at Oxford Orphanage, was the guest of honor at a delightful program in the York Rite Memorial Chapel. Mrs. Ligon, who has been teaching here for thirty-three years, was chosen "Teacher of the Year 1958" in Oxford and Granville County. The selection was made by committees from the Oxford Womans' Club, the Intermediate Womans' Club and the Junior Wo- mans' Club. In the picture above Mrs. Ligon smiles her appreciation as Brother E. T. Regan, our assistant superintendent and former school principal, places in her hands a silver "oscar", a gift of the afore- mentioned clubs. MRS. LUTHER A.

Parents' Magazine Teacher Award-1958 HONOR WELL DESERVED AND SPLENDIDLY PLACED Had nominations been acceptable from the entire state, it is unlikely that a more worthy candidate for Teacher of the Year honor in Oxford and Granville County could have been revealed than is found in the person of Mrs. L. A. Ligon of John Nichols School. Mrs. Ligon richly deserves the honor and the attendent re- cognition. In 83 years of teaching, the entire time at the Ox- ford Orphanage, she has touched the lives of considerably more than 500 in graduating classes and a far greater number in her other school duties. With a faint smile anda twinkle of appreciation in her eye, and in characteristic modesty, Mrs. Ligon undoubtedly would insist that it was her "good students" which had crown- ed her teaching efforts. But those who have had the good for- tune to know Mrs. Ligon as teacher are aware that her inter- est in her profession, her keen sense of devotion to duty, her willingness to sacrifice time and personal pleasure to help boys and girls in her school with their scholastic problems and with their extra-curricular undertakings have earned for her respect and everlasting gratitude. In her teachings and in her learning, altruism has been her ideal. She has been a steadying influence upon less experienc- ed teaching contemporaries and an inspiration to her students. We join the Woman's Clubs in their salute to Mrs. Ligon as Teacher of the Year. The honor is well deserved and splen- didly placed.

A little while we'd stop, to think once more Of that momentous day four years ago, When we as freshmen, approached John Nichols door Scare dreaming how much we'd someday know. A little while we fain would linger yet Recalling hours of victory so sweet, Yet blending with our pride a vague regret For those rare times we faced defeat. A little while before we call' well done' Our training for the tasks we have to meet, We'd like to retrace some steps once more, And smooth out all the things left incomplete. A little while before we leave our school And teachers who have given their best, We7d like to prove our worth to carry on The principles of living they have stressed. A little while then into the great, wide space We carry our motto "Worse than a quitter is one who does not try." May these words encourage us when trials we face, And direct us to success as time goes by. A little while we'd like to pause-and try to tell The depth of gratitude that swells our hearts today. To all we give sincerest thanks, then say-"Farewell" Graduation has come! We must be on our way! Page Fifty-Five Meieor Dust Today we hear a lot about meteor particles and the effect they have on rockets and satellites and their possible effect on space travel in the years ahead. Not many me- teors have been found here on earth and those that have been found have been studied extensively in an effort to find out about its past and the atmosphere from which it came. From this study and from experiments and testings, much has been brought to light, while much is yet to be revealed. In other words from these studies, some things have been found out, and some have not. We as a class have a past. Most things we are happy to tell you about, but there are some things we do not wish to reveal, so let's call our past "Meteor Dust." On September S, 1954, forty-three eager freshmen entered John Nichols High School. .What a day in our lives! I remember distinctly the sort of pitying glances that we received from the upperclassmen as they met us in the halls and on the campus. We were under the guidance of our Principal, Mr. E. T. Regan. Also to help us obtain our goal were Mr. M. G. Talton, Jr., with alegbrag Mr. Homer Thompson, general scienceg Mr. Thomas B. Currin, civics, and Miss Bonnie McRae, English, and also our home room teacher. As class leaders we had Marie Sheffield, as president, Norman Cook, vice-presi- dent, Jackie Jones, secretary, and Dalma Evans, treasurer. Mr. Thompson and Mr. Talton were our football and baseball coaches. Dalma Evans and Bobby Bradshaw represented us on the football team, and in baseball, we had Dalma. In the Student Council, Marie Sheffield was treasurer, and Troy Regan, our re- presentative. Oh, yes, we discovered our class also had dramatic ability, too, when Marie Shef- field, Troy Regan, and Dalma Evans, were selected for parts in the high school play, "Miss Adventure." Our first year ended, with the greater part of "Freshmen greenness" in the past, and with a beginning of a touch of wisdom. In our sophomore year We had a class roll of twenty-eight. The upperclassmen were more considerate of us this year. We began to find our activity interests and to fit into the swing of the overall school program. Our home room teacher, Mr. Talton, again found us looking for further algebraic knowledge. Others to lend a helping hand were: Mr. Homer Thompson, in biology, Mrs. Ligon, Latin, and Mrs. Robert Davis, English. Miss McRae had decided to change her name to Mrs. Davis. - Our -class officers were Jackie Jones, presidentg Dalma Evans, vice-presidentg Troy Regan, secretary, and Grace Holland, treasurer. Now that we were more experienced, why couldn't we do some public speaking, too? Thus we began, and as a result Troy Regan received honorable mention. Who knows what time may tell! The Class of '58 could have a movie star some day, for in the second year, Troy Regan is again on the stage, this time in "Dimples." How lovely in the lady's outfit! Virginia Morrisette carried out her part in splendid style, too. ' In the field of sports we had Jimmy Snider, Dalma Evans, and Bobby Bradshaw on the football team: On the girls' basketball team we furnished Jackie Jones, Maxine Capps, Zelda Upchurch, and Grace Holland. Jimmy Cox and Dalma Evans were on the boys' basketball team. Almost to the top now! Only two more years to go! Now our number had dwindled to twenty-three members. Mr. Thomas B. Currin was our home room teacher, also instructed us in our social studies. Mr. Talton came forth with geometry. We never knew there was so much con- nected with triangles, polygons, and circles. Then we had to face Caesar in all his Gal- lic campaigns, with Mrs. Ligon as our guide. She also carried us on a more familiar field, English. Typing was really something new, but Miss Betsy Burnette knew how to introduce the subject. On first thought, how would we learn to type without letters on the keys! Well, the question was answered. This year our class officers were Dalma Evans, president fHow about a change after the women had presided the past two years!Jg Norman Cook, vice-president, Grace Holland, secretary, and Jimmy Cox, treasurer. Our junior year was a period of activity. Members of our class participated in football, basketball and baseball. On the football squad we had Bobby Bradshay, Dal- ma Evans, Jimmy Cox, Charles Burton, Norman Cook, Troy Regan, Joe Finch, Wayne Edwards, Jackie Barnes, Frank McMillan, and Frank Forehand. On the girls' team were Odelle Wilson, Patsy Barger, Maxine Capps, and Grace Holland. Jimmy Cox, Charles Burton, Dalma Evans, and Troy Regan were on the Boys' team. In the Nettie N. Bemis Club, Charles Burton was vice-president and Patsy Barger was secretary. Selection of marshals is based upon scholarship, consequently, five of our class really received honor in this respect, for Dalma Evans was chief, along with Norman Cook, Jimmy Cox, Troy Regan, and Grace Holland, as ushers. The National Honor Society was organized this year, and Jackie Barnes, Charles Burton,-Troy Regan and Norman Cook accepted invitations for membership. In the World Peace Speaking Program, the key was won by Charles Burton. He had previously received honorable mention in the Boys' Recitation Contest. Now just one year remained between us and our goal. At last we were seniors, with twenty-one enrolled. Since Mr. Regan was to give full time as Assistant Superintendent of the Oxford Orphanage, it was necessary that another be secured for principalship of our school. We were most fortunate in having the successor already in our school. Mr. Thomas B. Currin was elected. Of course, we regreted losing Mr. Regan, but Mr. Currin has made us an excellent leader, and we wish for him a most successful future in the work. Mrs. L. A. Ligon became our home room teacher. Others helping to give us the finishing touch in high school were Mr. Talton, with business arithmetic, Miss Stain- back, chemistry, and Mr. Smith, history. Our class officers were Norman Cook, president, Patsy Barger, vice-president, Grace Holland, secretary, and Jimmy Cox, treasurer. . Bobby Bradshaw and Dalma Evans were co-captains of the football team, while Jimmy Cox, Charles Burton, Joe Finch, Norman Cook, Wayne Edwards, Frank McMil- lan, Frank Forehand, and Troy Regan were members of the team. On the basketball team were Jimmy Cox, Charles Burton, and Troy Regan. On the baseball team were Charles Burton, captain, and Jimmy Cox, co-captain. The girls' basketball team was led by co-captains Odelle Wilson, and a junior, Newassa Taylor. Others playing on the varsity team were Maxine Capps, Patsy Barger, and Grace Holland. Track was introduced as a new sport on the campus, and Bobby Bradshaw, Troy Regan, Charles Burton, and Jimmy Cox were active participants. Troy Regan was elected president of the Student Council, along with representa- tives, Bobby Bradshaw and Charles Burton. - In the Senior Recitation-Declamation Contest, Troy Regan won the Oxford Kiwan- is Club Medal for "Ole King Sollermun," while Virginia Morrisette received honorable mention with "Billy's Rose." Grace Holland was selected as the "Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow" in the contest given only to senior girls. She received a beautiful award. Those participating in the senior play "Calm Yourself" were Troy Regan, Maxine Capps, Patsy Powell, Patsy Barger, Odelle Wilson, Joe Finch, Bobby Bradshaw Jim- my Cox, Grace Holland, and Charles Burton. The Junior-Senior Banquet and Dance will long be remembered as a most delight- ful occasion. Other positions held by seniors this year were: Troy Regan, president, Frank Forehand, vice-president, Charles Burton, secretary, and Barbara Walton, treasurer, in the G.B. Summers Club, Grace Holland, president, Troy Regan, vice-president, of the Future Teachers Club, Bobby Bradshaw, president, and Patsy Powell, vice-presi- dent in the Glee Club. ' A new club, the Math Club, came into being this year, with Charles Burton as president and Norman Cook, vice-president. A very high honor was bestowed upon our class when Charles Burton was declared winner of an Aubrey' Lee Brooks Scholarship. Troy Regan had also been chosen as one of the finalists. Then came final examinations, and now our class exercises, and the receiving of diplomas. We have attained the topmost round on our high school ladder, but there are many who have been all along the way to guide our steps and see that each rung was reached with steady footing. To these we are most grateful, and in departing, from the depths of our hearts, we say "Thank You." As we climb the ladder labeled "Future", may we prove ourselves worthy of every kindness you have shown. FALLOUT Ever since the first atomic bombs were dropped during World War II there has been much said and written about the damage done by "Fallout" or radiation when a bomb is exploded. I think that everyone agrees that every precaution should be taken when firing bombs to control fallout and lessen as much as possible its harmful effects. The John Nichols High School Class of 1958 is about to explode a powerful bomb, so to speak. We are about to dispose of all our worldly possessions and to avoid any harmful or hurtful "Fallouts" We are submitting to you our last will and testament. We would not want a single item to fall into the wrong hands or in any way :ause trouble for anyone. We tried to be just, as well as generous and impartial. We hereby transfer into your possession the following items and articles and ask that you accept them as sacred trusts from those of us who have gone on before. To our beloved faculty who has labored and worried, We trust not altogether in vain, that we might be exposed to the cultural and intellectual phases of life, we give and bequeath all the right, title, and interest to the amazing, startling, and world-shak- ing answers that we have so generously given them from time to time on our examina- tion papers. We give and bequeath to the Junior Class our pep, our enthusiasm, and all our ability in the field of leadership. We also leave to you all our secret formulas for get- ting by without studying too much. To the Sophomores of next yea r, we have nothing we think they would accept, for when students reach that temperamental, fighty, and puffed-up state, it is difficult for them to properly evaluate or care for any of our valued and treasured possessions. To the Freshmen Class to be, we give and bequeath a small portion of our poise and our sophistication. The following may seem to some to be but trifling bequests, but we hope and trust that they may be accepted, not as worthless things to be thrown to the four winds, but as valuable assets, rich in sentimental value, to those who may receive them, and most of all may they be a constant reminder of generosity. Frank McMillan leaves to W. R. Warren his ability to get along with Shirley El- lis. May he be as successful. To Clydie Gibbs, Maxine Capps leaves her red bed room shoes. She should get long wear from them, for Max has never used them. To Don Herrington, Norman Cook leaves his ball point pen. Don had let him bor- row the pen once during the school term. Barbara Walton leaves to Clairene Graham all her excess weight, and hopes that she can continue eating like a pig and still stay slender. - Emogene Frady leaves to her sister, Geraldine, her diary and key, and to Christine, she leaves her bed and dormitory friends. Jimmy Cox leaves to Harry Cope his belt. Perhaps Harry has already worn it out, for Jimmy never had the use of it, because of its being borrowed. Page Fifty-Eight Odelle Wilson leaves to Shirley Wilson the Number 12 basketball suit and hopes Shirley will be able to accomplish more than she did. To Susan Pargoe, Patsy Powell leaves her ability to get out of bed at 6:00 a.m. in order to get to her work in the dining room on time. To Newassa Taylor and Shirley Duck, Virginia Morrisette leaves the memories of their many quarrels as well as their happy days in the first dormitory: to her brother Charles, her love respect, and appreciation for the John Nichols faculty, and to Sheila Read, the duty ironing all the boys' white shirts on Wednesdays. To Bobby McLendon and Larry Mumford, Bobby Bradshaw leaves his old "white shoes". He hopes that they will enjoy them as much as he has enjoyed them. Carl Jones leaves to his brother, VVa1ter Lee, his old "58" Ford. Perhaps he will enjoy school better. Billy Ray White wills to Jerry White has ability to skip school. Grace Holland leaves to Sara Finch and Lynda Crabtree her ability to flirt. Grace says it takes time and patience to become an expert, thus, with her assistance they might accomplish more and in less time. She has a pillow she would like to leave Clai- rene Graham to cry on when Jimmy graduates. Frank Forehand leaves to Dennis Harrison his job as Miss Hobson's "right hand man". Patsy Barger leaves to Sara "Kat" and Lind "Lucy" the responsibility of keeping all stray animals well fed that come about the kitchen. No mention is made of the ex- pense involved. Wayne Edwards leaves to Newassa Taylor his "beaten up" radio. Since Terry Herrington has practically taken possession of Joe Finch's bed any way, Joe has decided to leave it to him. Troy Regan bequeaths to Cabell his king-size track shoes because he knows that Cabell will be the only one with feet big enough to wear them. Kay James leaves to Carolyn James and Carolyn Almond her love for James Fish- er at 313 North Main St., in Henderson. If Norman Cook were not graduating, he would inherit Charles Burton's part of the second dormitory, but this being the case, Charles feels that Leonard Mobley and Don Herrington should be joint heirs, since they have already occupied it more than he did. To our little mascot, we leave our very best wishes for a long and happy life. All the residue of our property of whatever nature, kind, quality, or quantity, not otherwise disposed of, we give and bequeath to our beloved Class Sponsor. We further request and pray the court that said Sponsor be made sole executor of this, our last will and testament. ' In Testimony whereof, the Class of 1958 have to this instrument, subscribed our name and affixed this seal, third day of June, 1938 A. D. Signed: The Senior Class of 1958. Witnesses: David Lee Bryant Mrs, Nolie Knott Page Fifty-Nine DESTINATION-MOON You will agree that we are living in a new age where any- thing can happen-even a trip to the moon. Now I invite you to join me as I look twelve years into the future and see how the Class of '58 is orbiting. As we look in on Charles Burton, who was the tallest sen- ior in our class, we find that he has given up engineering and has taken up politics. We see that he is now the popular mayor of New York City. Orbiting out to the West coast we find that Odelle Wilson is now a millinery designer for one of the largest department stores in Los Angeles. Carl Jones received an award recently for being the first round trip passenger to the moon. , Now let's take a look at the Capitol and see if we recognize anyone there. Aha! I thought so, to be sure you remember Maxine Capps who is now an outstanding politician and is ex- pected to be elected President in the near future. Well, Frank Forehand, was the first senior to make a for- tune. He was Elvis Presley's successor in the teen-age enter- tainment world and is now retired without a financial worry in the world. As I thumbed through the newspaper this morning, I thought I saw a familiar name. Why, it should be familiar be- cause it was Emogene Frady in her syndicated column of ad- vice to the Love Lorn. As we orbit around, we see another familiar figure, Bobby Bradshaw, who owns a chain of Electrical Repair Shops lo- cated in all the principal cities in the United States, with Pat- sy Powell ashis business manager. I understand that Kay James is now touring the world as a concert pianist and that she will make an appearance soon in her old home town, Oxford. Norman Cook, the handsomest of our class, is now a very successful designer of women's clothes. I am advised that he is working hard to kill the sack-look. Page Sixty Of course you remember Billy Ray White, the boy who worked after school in Roses Five and Ten. Well, he now owns a chain of dime stores throughout the South. You can't say he didn't work his way up. 1 As we take a look at the doings in Hollywood, Patsy Bar- ger is also prospering. She now has an ever-expanding busi- ness of training animals for the stage. The other night I turned on the radio and heard Virginia Morrisette singing on the Firestone Hour. I wasn't surprised that she had reached fame for "Little Buttercup" was highly praised in our spring concert in 1958. Joe Finch and Wayne Edwards now own an exclusive shoe store for men in New York City. Their earlier training has really paid off. Looking into the entertainment world we find that Grace Holland has the leading part in a popular T. V. Soap Box Opera. V Frank McMillan, the oldest in ourhclass, is now a very suc- cessful and wealthy toy manufacturer. Jimmy Cox, who worked in the Printing Shop, is now the managing editor of the New York Daily News, which I under- stand has a greater circulation than the Orphans' Friend and Masonic Journal. One girl has stayed with the Olde Home through the years. Why, of course, she is Barbara Walton, who is now chief cook and bottle washer in the cafeteria. I As we take a glance at the sports world we find that Troy Regan is the owner and manager of a major baseball team in the American League. Now that I have given information about my classmates, I, too, shall join them in the future with our destination moon.

Mr. Talton has been our home room teacher, as Well as our algebra teacher. Others Who have helped us along Were Miss Stainback, in biology, Coach Smith, history, and Mrs. Ligon, in Latin and English. Our class leaders have been: Norman Ward, president, Sheila Read, vice-president, Billy Cox, secretary, and Shirley Duck, treasurer. An outstanding honor came to our class was the selection of Sheila Read to attend the Junior Science Symposium held at Duke University, University of North Carolina, and N. C. State College. Participating in the Boys' Declamation Contest were Har- ry Cope and David Lee Bryant. In the Girls' Recitation Con- test Were Shirley Duck, who received honorable mention, Shei- la Read, and Shirley Ellis. We had three members in the Student Council: Frank Deal, secretary, Jeff Pargoe and Jimmy Glasgow, representatives. In the Hallovve'en Carnival, Sara Finch and Mark Stama- takis Won in the popularity contest. In the high school play 'Teen Antics", We were very pleas- ed with the acting of Shirley Duck, Sheila Read, and Margie Rose. In fact, We would say they portrayed the characters in excellent style. We have had three cheer leaders from our class: Sara Finch, Randayle Chappell, and Shirley Ellis. We have had many interested in football, basketball, base- ball, and track, and a large number have participated in our literary and glee clubs. Examinations will soon be here-these Will determine Whether any will try the tenth grade a second time. We hope not. Let's go on!

All the first half of the game was scoreless. In the third quarter this deadlock' was broken when the Blackbirds marched Over our goal after a long drive. The attempt for the extra point was blocked and there was no further scor- ing in the game. At the final whistle the score stood 6-0 in favor of the Blackbirds. OXFORD ORPHANAGE 27-SOUTHERN DURHAM, O, In the first conference game of the season on September 13, the Red Devils thoroughly trounced Southern High's Rebels 27-0. Harold McLendon scored the first touchdown and then added the extra point. Bobby McLendon also went on the rampage, scoring' twice to help run up the score against the Rebels. Larry Mumford added the last six points to bring' the score to its impressive climax. ' U GRAHAM 19-OXFORD ORPHANAGE- 7 September 20, the Red Devils suffered their first conference defeat as they played host to Graham. William Guthrie, speedy back for Graham, showed some real running ability as he was the main threat against the Red Devils. The Orphanage defenders were never quite able to set up effectively against the winged tee offense which was used by the Graham team. Our lone score was made by Paul Tausch. The final score was 19-7 in favor of Graham. Page One Hundred Twenty5Six HENDERSON 7'-OXFORD ORPHANAGE 0 The Red Devils entertained the Henderson Bulldogs at Home on September 27, and the game was one of the best playd by the Devils for the season. The Orphanage held the Bulldogs until the final minute of the game when Henderson quarterback, Al Tay- lor, passed to fullback Arthur Cates from the Devils five yard line to strike paydirt and Jimmy Adams added the PAT with 15 seconds showing on the clock. The Devils got as Ss close as the 10 yard stripe of the Bulldogs in the second period but lost the ball ou owns Center Harry Cope intercepted a Henderson pass on the 10 yard line near the end of the first half to snuff out an early Henderson scoring attempt. The final score' of the game was Henderson 7, Oxford Orphanage 0. OXFORD ORPHANAGE 13-OXFORD HIGH 7 The Red Devils won their second victory against three defeats when they edge-d Oxford High by the score of 13 to 7. The rivals battled a vicious game and the Wildcats did better than expected. The first touchdown was run over by Harold McLendon in the second half. When the situation was getting desperate, Jim Cox caught a pass from Larry Mumford and saved the game. The game was played before the home-coming crowd on Oxford High's Field. The game scheduled with Northern Durham was cancelled due to sickness on the Northern team. ROANOKE RAPIDS 25-OXFORD ORPHANAGE 0 October 25 the Red Devils suffered their fourth defeat at the hands of the Roanoke Rapids team. The flu-ridden Red Devil team lacked the spark to make a go of it against the strong opposition of the rival team. This game was non-conference and was played on the home field of Roanoke Rapids. There was much coughing to be heard on the field that night as most of the Red Devils had suffered from the effects of the flu. The final score of 25-0 indicated an easy victory for Roanoke Rapids. HILLSBORO 20-OXFORD ORPHANAGE 6 The Red Devils played one of their best offensive games that night and one of their poorest defensive. Ray Stanley for Hillsboro was the star of the night scoring two touchdowns against the Devils. In the third quarter Paul Tausch scored, accounting for the Red Devils six points. The final score was 20-6 in favor of Hillsboro. ROXBORO 16-OXFORD ORPHANAGE 0 November 5, the Devils met Roxboro on their own field and again, as usual, it rained. Jerry Winstead ran two of the Rockets' touchdowns. The Red Devils were caught once behind their own lines for a touchback. The game was hard-fought despite the score. At the final whistle the Devils still remained scoreless. The final score was 16-0. in favor of Roxboro. CHAPEL HILL 33-OXFORD ORPHANAGE 0 On the night of November 12, the Red Devils played Chapel Hill at home. Harding Ruffin and Baldy Williams ran hard against The Olde Home to score two T.D.'s apiece. The Devils played their poorest game that night and they never seemed to be able to get together in their dfense against the Wildcats. Surba Roy scored the final points for Chapel Hill and the score stood Chapel Hill 33, Oxford Orphanage O.

We had only three seniors on the team. They were Troy Regan, 6' UQ" forward, Jimmy Cox, 6' 1" forward, and Charles Burton, 6' 2" center. Next year the squad will consist of these rising seniors: Larry Mumford, Harold McLendon, Paul Tausch, Wayne Jones, and Roy Wiestling. Jeff Pargoe and Harry Cope will be upholding the Junior Class. The junior varsity team will be able to supplement Coach Smith's team. Such boys as Bill Cox, Jimmy Glasgow, Ed Lof- tis, James Bullock, Earl Bryant, Mickey Fenn, and Jerry Evans should do some good work. As the seniors bid farewell, we wish Coach Smith and the Red Devils the very best of luck.

In the picture above, Joe Gardner, an eighth grade student, is shown doing some fancy bouncing around. Trampoline is a word that has been known in the circus world for years. It comes down to us from the Italian word "trampoli," which means per- forming acrobatic feats on stiltsg and the Spanish word "trampolin," mean- ing a diving board. It was first manufactured in the United States by George Nissen in 1936, and is valuable to circus acrobats in performing various feats of tumbling.

Charles made a guess, "Raleigh," Edward Loftis, laughing, whispered, "Mr, McSwain, he thinks it is Raleigh." One Sunday afternoon, a girl from Greensboro came who liked Don Herrington very much, but Don was not interested in her. She came up to Don and asked, "Are you Don Herrington ?" Don replied, "No! I'm Terry." fTerry is Don's brother.J DAVID LEE: "Mr, Smith scolded me because I didn't know where the Great Lakes were." HARRY COPF: "Well, next time remember where you put things." Margie Rose, who is from the mountains of North Carolina was on her way to the Orphanage. She had to stop over in Winston-Salem for the night. It was the first time she had ever been in a hotel and the bellhop took her bags and went to the elevator. Margie, flaring up: "I won't take this room! I'm not paying for a measly little room like this! Just because I'm from the mountains, you can't-" The bellhop interrupted, "Madam, this isn't your room. This is the elevator." Some day the great biologist, Leslie Albertson, will announce he has at last found the female earthworm for which he went in search of in 1957.

He caught something and found it was Pasty Barger. Scratching his head, he said, "I have heard of this, but it is the first time I have ever caught a real horse."
