Yet no senior class alone would claim credit for the en- tire production of its volume. The credit for the twenty-five years existence of The Log must surely be shared with hun- dreds of individuals who have cooperated so splendidly and wholeheartedly in various ways. The Log is truly an exam- ple of the motto: "In union there is strength." The Class of 1961 follows the footsteps of previous class- es in expressing deepest appreciation for every service ren- dered in helping them to present to their readers, this, the twenty-fifth volume of The Log. The Log had its beginning in 1936 with Mr. G. B. Sum- mers, as faculty adviser, thus, the Class of 1937 published the first volume of The Log, Mr. Summers accepted work in Louisiana in 1940, after which, Mrs. Luther A. Ligon became faculty adviser. Since space is limited, we do want to present the editors who have served so faithfully.

Throughout the years his loyal devotion to our Home, and his untiring interest in our Welfare have been realized, and it is With our love and most gracious thanks for every kind consideration that We, the Class of 1961, dedicate our volume of The Log to our friend, the possessor of unusually high merits, Mr. W. E. Warren. I Page Seven Page Eight S MR. J. H. LANDRUM IN APPRECIATION lt is regrettable that space allows only a page in a book. and human facility allows only words, for such space and mere words can never fully express what hundreds of "his boys" feel in their hea1'ts for Mr. J. H. Landrum. To say, "Thank you," or that we 'tappreciaten what he has done. would bel gi oss understatements. Of course, one could enumerate any number of exter- nals. One ccuiu say that Mr. Landrum gave a boy a new lease cn life by giving him the prir.-ting trade. a way to make his iiving in the world. Or, one could say that Mr. Landrum taught more English than could ever be learned in any number of text-books. One could remember his friendly smile, his wholesome humor, or the reserved dig- nity which labeled him a tru: Southe1n gentleman from Georgia. Indeed, one could talk on these things for hours. But I think the thing which made us love him most was his genuine friendship, his sincere love freely given to every boy who ever worked in the printin-g department. The very fact that he still refers to us as "his boys" serves to illustrate what I mean. When I first went to work in the printing plant in 1947, Mr. Landrum was already a real part of the tradition of Oxford Orphanage. I can remember a group of us sitting around his desk, listening to him tell stories of how "his boys" won impossible football games, or he would remember some funny story of what had hap- pened to another while working in the shop, and then he would say with a deep sense of pride how this particular fellow, or that one had gone on to do successful things in the world. And to those of us who sat with glistening eyes, listening to him talk, there came a profound awareness of being important, for we were sure that this man. if there were no others, really cared for us. When our spirits were down, he raised us up: when we were in trouble, he stuck by us. He was our friend. How, then, shall we merely say, "Thank you" to him 'Z His life has been, and continues to be a real inspiration for us. To him we owe a lasting debt of gratitude that can never be fully repaid. One of his boys, Bob Garner Page Nine Page Ten Miss MARY HARRIS IN APPRECIATION For seven years Miss Mary Harris gave of her best as counselor in our dining halls. We deeply appreciate every word of encouragement, every inspiration, and every deed of kindness in our behalf. We think of her as a sincere friend and one who was always willing to direct us in the right Way. We are confi- dent that life has been made richer and fuller by her pres- ence with us. In her retirement, we extend to her our many thanks and include with them our every good Wish for years of happiness and the best of health.

We anon' all the good of high school years To parents and teachers wise, Who inspired each step of our careers And endeavored to help us rise. In niernrory we glance at the slope below With its lifting measure and tread, And see ourselves with faces aglozr. As uve gallantly forged ahead. We were kindred in struggles and pleasures- The things belonging to youthful days. We earned our many trophies and treasures, Our honors, our friends, in the usual ways. Then, we turn from the past and gaze alronc And hope we can climb to success, Sharing our progress with compassion and lone, And scattering some happiness. We must not be wary of thc distant flightg For youth must have dreams and look afar, And apply its strength with all its might, And keep its reach on a star. We're sad to know our high school days are gone, But to reach our goal we mast go on and on. With courage and hope zoe'll mount each step on the stair, Regardless of circnunistafnces, foul or fair. Wc'll cherish the memories of friends so dearg For blessings so richly bestowed upon us here. Our thanks we leave so sincere from the heart, As we say "Farewell" to our Alina Mater, and depart. Page Fifty OUR STEPS Well, here we are at the top of the high school stairs-We have made it. It's good to take a look down the stairs and note how steep the steps are behind us. Only four years ago, this class of forty-five in number. and unskilled in the art of building anything, much less a stairway, arrived one September morning on time to begin work. All we possessed were ourselves and our potential abilities, but our prin- cipal, Mr. Currin, no mean architect when it comes to planning, set us to work to build the first step, namely, our first year in high school. The teachers were coming from every door to give us advice and sup- ply us with material and tools. To lead us in the building, first, we chose our class officers: Mickey Fenn, president: Jerry Finch, vice-president, Pat Davis, secretary, and Lynda Crabtree, treasurer. Mrs, Jacquetta Clayton, our homeroom teacher, prevented our stumbling back down the stairs many times. VVe had a wonderful time that year, even though we had many new re- sponsibilities. Indeed it was a sturdy foundation we built. Next year we were ready to build step two. With only thirty- three still climbing the stairs with us, we were ready to start our sophomore year. These officers were chosen to lead us: Jerry Finch, presidentg Pat Davis, vice-presidentg Nina Gardner, secretary, and Earl Bryant, treasurer. The cheerleaders from our grade were Lynda Crabtree, Alice Rumfelt, and Nina Gardner. Mary Ella Webb won the World Peace Key in the World Peace Speaking Program. Our class was well represented in football, basketball, track, speaking contests, and the various clubs. Many of us participated in the high school play that year. The third year found us building another step. We were experi- enced now so the stairway was truly growing and giving the real ap- pearance. With only twenty-six members now, we hurried to elect our class officers. These were Sue Sowers, president, Mickey Fenn, vice-president, Gail Beasley, secretary, and Dennis Harrison, treasur- er. Even though We were still building, we managed to find time for football, basketball, baseball, and track, Our interest continued in the clubs and many honors were bestowed upon us. Among them were Sue Sowers, vice-president, and Dennis Harrison, treasurer, of the Math Club. Our chief marshal was Lynda Crabtree, those assisting were Sue Sowers, Gail Beasley, Mary Ella Webb, and Jim Homer. Again many of the juniors had roles in the high school play. Alice Rumfelt was with the cheerleading group again. One of our biggest events of the year was the Junior-Senior Ban-- quet. Our theme was Oriental Gardens. Much hard work was required to transform the Gym into this beautiful setting. Finally, we were ready to build the fourth and last step. We were so buoyed in spirit that we felt we could take off as a rocket in space. But we managed to stay with our job. Our happy and busy days were filled with many activities. Now we are at the top with Sue Sowers again as our president, Mickey Fenn, vice-president: Gail Beasley, secretary, and Jim Homer, treasurer. Lynda Crabtree and Sue Sowers are our valedictoriansg while Mary Ella VVebb is salutatorian. As in our past years, many of us have participated in the various extra curricular activities. Dennis Harrison and Frank Smith were our football co-captains. James Bullock and Mickey Fenn were basketball co-captains. James was also one of the battery mates on our basesball team. Mickey Fenn and Jimmy Bostick were two of the track tri-captains. Dixie VVarren and Lynda Crabtree were co-captains of the basketball team, too. Among those receiving honorable mention in the District III Con- ference were James Bullock and Dixie VVarren, basketball, and Dennis Harrison, football. James Bullock was selected to play in the East-West All Star Baseball Game in Greenville. Lynda Crabtree has been chief cheerleader this year. Other senior cheerleaders were Alice Rumfelt and Sue Sowers. Mary Rose Hunter won the Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomor- row Award by scoring highest on the test provided by General Mills. James Bullock received the most valuable basketball player award presented by Dr. James Rowland. He is truly a deserving athlete. In the Senior Recitation-Declamation Contest, Sue Sowers won the Oxford Kiwanis Medalg while Mary Ella Webb received honorable mention. Our senior play, 'AA Fortunate Calamity", was a howling success. The leading roles were played by Sue Sowers and Benjie Provost. Mary Ella Webb received the D. A. R. Award. She was selected by judging committees as a candidate for the N. C. Women's Club Scholarship also as a candidate for the Audrey Lee Brooks Scholar- ship. Jimmy Crutchfield has been granted a scholarship from East Carolina College. With the aid of Mrs. Ligon, our highly esteemed adviser, we have published a beautiful yearbook. James Crutchfield was editor-in-chief, Earl Bryant, associate editor. These were assisted by ten very capable members of the staff: Dixie Warren, Dennis Harrison, Mary Ella Webb, Jimmy Bostick, Benjie Provost, Mickey Fenn, Sue Sowers, Bobby Baker, Jerry Finch, and Mary Rose Hunter. One of the most delightful events on our Senior Climb was the Junior-Senior Banquet and Dance. We shall long remember the lovely Hawaiian setting. f From the Dunn Building we found our mascot, Tommy Trouble- ield. I 'Then came final examinations, our class exercises, and the re- ceiving of diplomas. We have reached the top of our high school stair- way. We are most grateful to those who have helped in guiding us upward ever upward. As We ascend the stairway of life, may We prove ourselves worthy of every kindness bestowed upon us. Page Fifty-one Page Fifty-two STEPS-IN-LAW While climbing up the bright stairs I have given con- siderable attention to these Steps-in-Law as I knew we would want to dispose of many of our properties. Since we shall not be passing up these stairs again, we wish to dis- pose of all our surplus talents, brillance, tools, worn carpet- ing and whatnots. STEP ONE: To our principal, Mr. Thomas B. Currin, who has been our chief architect in planning and directing us in the construction of our stair-- way of education at John Nichols High School, we do give our com- bined thanks and gratitude. We could not have progressed to our present position as seniors had he not pushed and pulled with constant supervision. STEP Two: To our class adviser and sponsor, Mrs. L. A. Ligon, we give our everlasting love and friendship for her patience in going along with such a class. We realize that most of the time she had to elbow her way up the crowded stairs. STEP THREE: To all the other teachers and counselors, who have struggled with us, too, we leave our best wishes and congratulations that they have finished with us. STEP FOUR: To the Juniors, we leave all our sore muscles, charley horses, flat feet, bruises, and backaches which we have acquired on our way to the top landing. We hope they can find a formula to cure such ailments for future classes who will make a similar journey. STEP FIVE: To the rising Senior class president for next year, we leave our president's ability and genius in managing a Senior class in their ups and downs. STEP SIX! To the sophomore class we leave our athletic and dramatic ability. STEP SEVEN: To the freshmen we leave our advice and wish them the best of luck in their remaining years in school.

We, the senior class of John Nichols High School, do set our seal and signature, tall and high, to these Steps-in- Law, this day the sixth of June, one thousand nine hundred and sixty-one. Signed: JERRY FINCH,T6Slfllt0'I' Witnesses: Miss VIVIAN STAINBACK TOMMY TROUBLEFIELD Page Fifty-three Page Fifty-four THE CIRCULAR STAIBCASE I am a prophet. I can look into the future and tell the great and little events in a senior's life-things to come which will mean much to everyone here. I see a staircase, circular and win-ding far beyond the ken of the average eye, and I see each of you on that staircase, rising, step by step, as you wind your way upward to fulfill your life dreams and plans in the daily activities of life. And now I look into the future thirteen years from this day. I find a former classmate of mine, Dennis Harrison, over at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, whom I haven't seen for a number of years. He is now not only an expert electrician but also is Head Commissioner at the Atomic Energy Plant. There is Benjie Provost, the new owner of Dell Comic Books. Our class president, Sue Sowers, and Benjie have teamed togther. They have written many successful plays. You remember that they had leading roles in the senior play in high school. Sue has graduated from Duke Nursing School With highest honors. She is now a very popular nurse at Rex Hospital in Raleigh. Dixie Ruth Warren- has her own barber shop and beauty salon on fashionable Brevard Street in Clinton. And now, Reggie Stout, my former partner in the Orph- anage Bakery is the President of Swift Packing Company in Chicago. In addition' to this, he is a very popular comedian and is a part-time rocking disc jockey on station WLS in Chicago. I see Mary Rose Hunter has worked her way through secretarial school and has established a school of her own in Elizabeth City. Roger Taylor has reenlisted in th U. S. Air Force and has now become a Sergeant. Millard Frazier has also joined the Forces. He is a Chief Petty Officer in the U. S. Navy. Alice Rumfelt has returned to the "Ole Homel' to become Mr. Gray's secretary. There is Jerry Finch, who has completed a three year course at Massey Tech in Jacksonville, Florida. He has be- come Head Draftsman at Cape Canaveral. Gail Beasley has settled in Washington, D. C. She has a good job and is being very successful. On the Staircase is David A. Bryant. He is a business manager in a large shoe shop in Charlotte. In high school he had all the qualities of being the boss-he knows now how to manage the difficult problems since that's his line. There is Bobby Baker stepping up in a sprightly man- ner. He is loaded down with cameras. I understand he is a photographer for Life Magazine. I suspect he has made most of the seniors' pictures in the last few years as they have been climbing on the stairs in important positions. Well, well, there is Landis Moffitt on the bright stairs. She is movin-g toward her shiny yacht anchored in the Bay. She is sailing on the Mediterranean' Sea for a long cruise and seems to be having a wonderful time. Mary Ella Webb has her own model establishment where she employs the latest beauties for modeling in the fashion and commercial houses in Hollywood, California. Betty Lou Parham is one of Mary Ella's most popular models, and is also her top paid model. Sam Hutchins is a familiar figure on the circular stair- case. He has his beloved guitar with him. He has done some fine playing all over the world, and is famous for his music. He also has a show on WCKY in Cincinnati. Now, Woodrow McMillan has finally become tops in "Bob Smarts" chain store in St. Louis. On the other side of the city, Jimmy Bostick has become famous for his carpen- try work. He is the owner of the Bostick Lumber Co. James Bullock is the number one pitcher for the Mil- waukee Braves. He is the top hitter with a 410 mark. There were two no-hit games and two one hit games by him. Now Lynda Crabtree has taken over the girls' basketball team in the John Nichols School. She won the District III Tournament the past two years. Jimmy Crutchfield and Earl Bryant are owners of the New York Daily Times. Besides this, Earl has a Bazooka Bubble Gum Factory on Fifth Avenue. Frank Smith fbetter known to his class as "Shorty"J is the head linotype operator at the Short Printing Shop, in Richmond, Virginia. And Jim Homer has become the top designer of sports cars in Detroit. Now it is time for our mascot, Tommy Troublefield, to graduate. He has worked diligently in his senior year. Other than being co-captain of the football team, he is valedictor- ian of his class. Since I have had a view of my classmates in' their var- ious locations, it's time for me to join them on the pilgrim- age through life. Regardless of all predictions, it is up to each of us to make living worthwhile and honorable. Page Fifty-five Q . 6,77 . .ip X- Page Fiftylsix 1 NA ,. M - N -.. -M-'Z xv, 4 V V .

The freshmen have been very active in many of the extra curricular activities. We would like to comment on two in particular-our girls in basketball and our stunt. We feel that we have really won some recognition, for on the girls' varsity squad, we had seven participating: Linda Burton, Linda Payne, Janie Turbyfill, Iris Cox, Pauline Strickland, Nora Toler and Phenie Taylor. From the type of playing of these girls, we can surely look forward to some excellent playing in the future. Pauline Strickland was the high scorer for the entire season. On the cheering group we had Susan Regan and Phenie Taylor. Our most outstanding event was the stunt we presented under the direction of Mrs. Robert Davis. With our "Stars and Stripes Forever", we came out victorious. Our stunt was the winner in the high school group. More could be said of our participation in the various clubs, in the Student Council, and other organizations. We have enjoyed this new experience. Our boys have been found on the different athletic teams also, and have proved themselves capable, even though in- experienced. We shall look forward to our sophomore year with a great deal of interest. Pager 'Eighty-one THESE DAYS WE'LL LONG REMEMBER! WE ABE ON THE FIRST STEP!
