And how the seniors loved that!!! The administrative offices were near the foyer across from the auditorium, but this was not the only place the principal could be found. l-le seemed to be al- most everywhere at once. Beyond the foyer was the cafeteria which was the scene of much activity twice each day as students rushed in to get their lunches. But soon it was cleared of students and the rattling of dishes and pans and the voices of the cafeteria staff were the only sounds to be heard. FQREWORD new school, and you felt as if your whole world had come crashing down upon you. You were sure you would never find your classes on time and you would be separated from your iunior high friends. . .And a sincere desire to be anywhere else came flooding over you. But then you saw someone coming. lt was ci stran- ger, but one with such a warm, friendly smile. He gave you information in a friendly sort of way and took his time to personally guide you where you were supposed to be. Greeting you there was an understanding teacher with a cheerful smile-one that made you feel that you belonged. And it was here that you were guided through the years to make the most of your time. You under- stood the real meaning of the school-the purpose for which it was founded and why everyone was so loyal. You understood that one gets from something what he puts into it. And you began to grow up-intellectually, spirit- ually, socially, emotionally, and physically. Many of your experiences in such growth have been captured in word and picture to make THE VIKING for 1957 truly one to quicken the memories you hold so dear...memories you may relive as though . .

HE IS OUR FRIEND! 4 4 e. B Members of The Cgunfy Bggrd of Eduqgtion gre Mr, J, VV, Wilson, Superintendent of Mecklenburg County Schools, Mr. W B. McClintock, Chairman, Mr. J. Mason Smith, Mr. Fred A. Cochran, Mr. R. Lacy Ranson, and Mr. J. Murrey Atkins. Certainly there was never a more progressive step taken than that of carrying out the new program of school consolidation and construction in Mecklen- burg County. Mr. J. W. Wilson, Superintendent, along with the Board of Education, conceived a plan to promote the educational welfare of high school students and at the same time relieve the crowded situation in the existing schools. This plan called for the con- struction of three new high school plants which would consolidate the seventeen high schools then in existence. The catch phrase, SUPER HIGH SCHOOLS, was used to carry the idea to the public. Mr. Wilson and the other members of the Board spent many hours ed- ucating each community to the advantages the new super high schools would hold over the others. But there were many who wanted no change and could see no progress in such a step. They feared to lose the high schools from their communities. But planted with patience and understanding, the plan began to take root, and soon the idea was reacted to more favorably. Those who were convinced began to work for the culmination of such a project. Then came the test. . .that of voting for bonds to finance such modern schools. But one need not have had any anxiety, for the foundation had been laid very strongly through the work of the Board. The bond issue passed, and soon the results were visible. Anxiously and with trepidation the students watch- ed the progress-anxious to see that the new idea would bring forth, but fearful of what the change would mean. And now each student who enters North finds that the increased number of subiects taught pre- pares him better for work and for college. He finds the opportunity greater for making friends and learning new people in the county in which he lives. Each student says, "The present high schools are better in every way. I wouldn't change North for my old school for anything." That, Mr. Wilson and Board members, is the best tribute that could be paid you and your work. For six years your vision has been a reality-and a very successful one! 5 limit . We J , , fill ii W' V ' Q1 gi Mrs. Ruth Barfield, Miss Mary Richards, Mr. William Cochran, Mrs. Mary A.

When the doors opened wide on the morning of Sep- tember 4, 1951, seven of the present faculty were there to greet the new students from Cornelius, Davidson, Derita, Huntersville, and Long Creek. Teacher and student alike had the feeling of newness and unfamiliar surroundings. There was much wondering about whether students from these five separate high schools would mold themselves into an effective student body, being loyal to North Mecklenburg High School. One must re- member they had been rivals in every activity up to the present time. But these same students showed no hesitation-nor did they lack cooperative spirit. They went to work immedi- ately, and soon one would have found it difficult to detect the fact that they had not always been one student body. In fact, students from each of the five communities were friends from the first day. Working together, they soon set up standards which other students to come would follow for years, the school colors, blue and white, were chosen, the name Rebels was selected, and the ALMA MATER was written. The school program moved forward at an amazing pace. Organizations such as the Student Council were or- ganized for the first time, classes were running smoothly, officiers were elected, and the first football team any 6 of the schools had had was having a successful season. Much work had been done, and much was left to do, but with a will to do or die, no one hesitated. With such a spirit how could North be anything other than suc- cessful. These seven teachers saw North on the move. They saw the grounds cleared and landscaped, the parking lots cleared, graveled, or paved, courses such as Family Living, Business English, DE, and Bible added to the cur- riculum, ball teams win championships, the gym built, and students win coveted awards such as the Morehead Scholarship and others just as important. They worked faithfully to accumulate and arrange information to have the school evaluated for accreditation. They were present on the great day when the principal wired that North had been placed on the list of schools accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. These teachers have seen students come and go through the years, and there has been regret to see them go. But there was the joy of forming new associa- tions and watching the development of those who fol- lowed. The picture is ever changing, for nothing stands still. There is only one way that North could possibly go -ever onward! Mrs. Holbrook teaches geom- etry. Some of the students prepare the problems tor class. They are Lindo Stilwell, Donna Harry, and Seymour Robinson. MATHEMATICS IMPORTA T I MA YPROFESSIONS Since mathematics is so important to so many things, the students are encouraged to take all the courses in math they feel they can do well. The requirement in math is two units for graduation. The student who is going to college finds that the more math he takes in high school, the easier he can get into the college of his choice and do the work well. Since Algebra I is taught in the junior high schools, the first course offered at North is Algebra II. This is, of course, a continuation of the work done-in the first year. It is an important course for those preparing for college. Paul Haynes, Mary Neill, and Jimmy Pait look on as Mrs. Haisley explains an algebra problem. Business math is taught for those who find math some- what difficult and are not preparing for further study. It is the math for which one would find a need everyday, reviewing the principles that were taught in arithmetic in the lower grades. It prepares one for what he will need in his daily living. Geometry is required for entrance into some colleges, and plane geometry is offered the students who need it. Some of the students realize they need more math- ematics than is offered in the regular classes and they work on advanced courses during activity under the supervision of one of the teachers. Mrs. Daggy's business math class is working on an assignment. Frances Horton, Kenneth Cox, Lillian Mullis, and Ann Grant prepare an assignment. T, as-I' . w,,.. J Stewart, S. McAulay, A, Furr, and N. Brovyn form a panel with M. Blythe as mod- erator in Miss Richards' Class. M L. Meacham, D. Mc- Ree Miss Kiker, and B. i Abernethy listen as G. Bradley presides in a lesson on parliamentary procedure. Sharon Alexander explains the derivation of words in Mr. Biggerstaffs class while Eliza- beth Evans and Marshall Bar- nette look on, LA GUAGES PROVIDE FIRM FOU DATIONS FOR OTHER STUDIES ..... . Since the ability to express one's ideas and to under- stand others is of prime importance, English is required each of the three years at North. Sophomore English reviews the basic grammar taught in the elementary and iunior high schools. Literature in this grade is general and gives the student an opportunity to appreciate the work of many authors. In the iunior year American literature is taught, and much stress is placed on putting into practice what one has learned in the past years. Words and their uses are also stressed. Because words are the signs of ideas, it is important to develop as large a vocabulary as possible. One can develop a good vocabulary through careful reading and using the dictionary. Term papers, oral re- ports, impromptu talks, and panel discussions give the students a variety of experiences in their own language. In the senior year the student is expected to be much more mature in his work, putting more time into his themes, discussions, and reports. Here the student should have realized his definite needs and his weaknesses and apply himself accordingly. Those who are going to col- lege have some idea of what they must do to be pre- pared for college level work. Those who are going into the commercial field have realized their need for ac- curate spelling and the constant use of the dictionary and brevity and correctness of expression. Others have decided just what their needs are, also. Each year English classes are taught the use of the library. Good reading is stressed in each class, and good books are required to be read tor book reports. Students are encouraged to read good literature dur- ing their leisure time, so as to cultivate an appreciation of the best that has been written. But the greatest aim of the work in language is to equip students to think critically and to express ideas clearly and concretely, for to be successful requires the ability to do each of these equally well. vg3sQW:f G J. Auten, R. Mayhew, J. Knox, and L. Griffin work in we o Q o ' - s ' ' ' French was in the curriculum from the very begin- ning of the school. This language helps one to under- stand his own language better, for many of our words are derived from French words. Most colleges require two years of French or some other foreign language. Latin was added to the course of study in the second year of North's operation. The class was small, but it was library on an assignment in magazines. the forerunner of much larger classes and more interest in the subiect. Seventy-six per cent of English words come from Latin roots, therefore, a student who learns his Latin vocabulary can readily transfer meaning to the similar English word. The Latin classes are taught in consecutive years, Latin l during one year and Latin ll the next. Alain Boiton reads a French magazine to Joan Hicks, Judy Honeycutt, and Robert Simril. Mrs. Holbrook looks approy- ingly at the Latin bulletin board as Jimmy Woods, Diane Andrews, Linda Kerley, and Jerry Youngblood finish with it.

DCI G TO LEAR Many classes at North are practical ones where the lesson is learned and put into practice at the same time. Vocational agriculture is a three year course and is elected by any boy interested in farming and related subiects. Here a boy learns about many things of value to him on the farm. He learns how to judge seeds, products, animals, and even the land. He learns how to take care of everything on the farm, how to repair machinery and farm buildings, and in some instances learns how to build the furniture, the cabinets, and other articles he might need. Shop provides much practical experience for the classes. lndustrial Arts affords an opportunity to learn by doing. Here the students learn to design and build. In Mechanical Drawing they learn to become draftsmen. They also learn many other principles involved in such work. Distributive Education deals with retailing, wholesaling, and ser- vices. Students study better methods of being successful in these fields and put into practice what they learn. They leave school each day to go to work, and on the job they are under the supervision of the DE teacher. They are graded on their work on the job just as they are graded on their work at school. Home Economics trains girls to be good homemakers. They learn to cook, sew, be gracious hostesses, develop pleasing personalities, and do other things. They learn proper relationships with other people, also. Much interest is taken in this course. I0 Richard Boyles gives dictation for Jeanette Williams, Ann Young, and Betty .lean Eller to practice shorthand. is "' TRAINING FOR FUTURE OCCLIPATIONS Some of the students at North prepare for jobs im- mediately after graduation. The commercial department is geared to take care of the needs of those desiring to go into the commercial field as stenographers, secre- taries, bookkeepers, or typists. When North High opened, courses in typing and first year shorthand were offered the students. Soon after, second year shorthand, bookkeeping, and office prac- tice were offered to prepare the students for work. Typing and shorthand are required for many of the positions offered graduates. Constant practice in either of these subiects is essential for proficiency which as- sures trained students the best positions and eligibility for promotions. Filing is taught along with the other courses, for many students will have some filing duties along-with their other work. Office practice is iust what the name implies. The students are taught the use of electric typewriters, the Viorrow, J. McGraw, M. L. Fowler, S. Epperson, G. S. Wall, dictaphone, calculating machines, the mimeograph and other duplicating machines. They carry out various as- signments iust as if they were on the iob. This experience gives the student confidence when he actually begins work. Fundamentals in bookkeeping are taught, and actual practice in keeping books is given the student. Although almost every office has its own system of bookkeeping, the student can apply the principles he learns in this course to do the work required of him. None of these courses are required for graduation, and only those who are planning to go into the commer- cial field take any of them, except typing. When a student has taken these courses at North and applied himself to the task, he is capable of taking any position offered him without fear that he will fail on the iob. j 5, Eubgnkg gre in The Offiqe practice QIQ55, Mrs, Jones keeping.

It has speeded up life so that what is said in far away places is soon known by everyone in our country. It has speeded up educa- tion by new and more scientific methods as visual educa- tion through movies in the school, and in the home by radio and television. Many opportunities await those who are interested in science and its related activities. At North biology is required of every student before he receives a diploma. To know more about ourselves and the world about us is indeed reason enough for this requirement. And many of the professions such as medi- cine require a thorough knowledge of biological facts. Many a doctor or nurse followed their profession be- cause of an interest started in high school biology. Chemistry is not required for graduation, but it is a college entrance requirement. Many are the opportun- ities for success in vocations and professions in chemistry. If one would look about him, he would find that chemis- Thomas Mayberry, Pat Willis, David Puckett, and John Secrest, with Mrs. Hart assisting, find biology a most fascinating subject. But they learn one can't afford to be squearnish. SCIENCE OFFERS WIDE OPE FIELD try had some part of practically everything about him, and new things are being developed every day. Lucky is the student who has a deep interest in this subject. Physics is another course that should appeal to the scientific minded. Our progress, yes, our very existence, depends so much on physics and the things derived from the application of its principles. This course is not re- quired at North, but like many other courses, the person going to college finds it necessary. Those who do not go to college are often interested in the facts learned in physics, also. Parents and teachers should encourage student to take all the science he can for, looking into the future, one can see huge programs for greater and greater control of power, new forms of matter, safety from hun- ger and diseases, and improvement of behavior and ideals-all gained by the methods and the results of science. Mrs. Cochran supervises Larry Teffeteller, Frances I-lunter, and Adger Ray Perry as they perform an experiment in chemistry. Careful, novvl Ann Furr must have discovered the solution to the problem in physics as she pours something from the test tube. Miss Vance, the teacher, Barbara l-laley, Jimmy Stevvart, and Jerry Clemons are there to keep tab on the proceedings. ' of 1 it ll' ' .. . 5, A 71 Physical Education is enioyed by both boys and girls. All of them enioy such games as bas- ketball and volleyball, either in the gym or outdoors. These classes give the student some time for relaxation from concentrating on studies. PHYS ED DEVELOPS BODY A D ATTITUDE Phys Ed helps develop strong bodies, and it teaches the students to be cooperative. Team work is essential in most sports, and the student learns he cannot play the game for his own glory and be victorious. Even with a winning score, he loses some of the respect of his fellow students when he tries to play for personal gain. At North classes are held for boys and girls who are interested in the course, but it is a requirement for all soph- omores unless one is in band. Most of the students enioy a period of play during the school day and look forward to this class. Games and gymnastics are included in the course for girls. The boys enioy basketball, softball, horseshoes, calis- thenics, and other activities. Many of them are interested in tumbling and wrestling. These activities are closely super- vised to keep accidents at a minimum. The gymnasium is used for many of the phys ed classes. This building was constructed after the school had been in operation for some time. The dedication service which took place in January, 1955, was a thrilling experience for those interested in the athletic program of the school and in physical education for North's boys and girls. L. Kerley, B. Ellis, and M. C. McCutchan put the finishing touches on the bulletin board in U. S, history. Mrs. Hanson conducts a discussion group in her world history class. Social studies should give students a chance to examine thoughtfully the social order in which they live and to com- pare it with other possible ways of doing things, so that they can take an intelligent part in the improvement of our way of lite. At North social studies account for many of the classes. World History, an elective, is chosen by many to make the second of two social studies units required for graduation. In this subject a student learns of the great events that have led to the present civilization. He learns the background of many of our peoples that inhabit the earth. United States History is required of all students and is taught in the junior class. Here one learns of the events that have led this country to be the great nation that it is. If one understands the course of events that preceded his generation, he understands better how to deal with the problems that meet his nation from day to day. Psychology and Sociology are offered in the senior year as an elective. This may be the second of the required so- cial studies units, or it may be iust an elective to make the required sixteen units for graduation. One learns more about himself and others in this class, and he understands better how to cope with his problems. Bible was added to the curriculum in the year 1954- 1955. This course is financed by the churches in the school district, and it has proved to be a popular course with the students. It is an elective and most colleges accept units earned in Bible as a part of the required units for entrance. Two units in Bible may be earned at North. Family Living is another one of the courses which deal with the individual and how he can make a better life for himself. It teaches him what to expect from others and his own responsibilities. SCCIAL STUDIES TEACH IMPROVEME T CF WAY OF LIFE D. Delinger, H. Bennett, and N. Brown discuss a problem in sociology with Mr. Hunt. Miss Johnston reads to her Bible class. Mr. WILLIAM A, HOUGH is the principal of North Meck- lenburg High School, having come to North in the 1955- 1956 term. He was principal at Berryhill before his present position. Mr. Hough attended Wake Forest College where he re- ceived his BS in Education-High School Principal. He and his wife, who is a teacher also, live near the school in a house provided the principal by the county. They have two children, a boy and a girl. Mr. Hough also has two ponies and many dogs. He likes to hunt, hence the dogs. He also likes sports, and one can find him at all North's games unless he is unavoidably kept away. MRS. PEGGY HAYNES, Secretary MR. W. A. HOUGH, Principal Mrs. PEGGY HAYNES, the secretary, is the wife of one of the coaches. She attended Wingate Junior College and has a degree from ASTC in Home Ec and Science. She and Mr. Haynes have two small girls. Her hobby is sewing. Mr. Ben Washam, Mr. Sam Wilson, Mr. .lohn W. Mitzel, Mr. DeWitt Bradford, and Dr. J, W. Reid, Frequently during the year, the members of North's local board, who are called committeemen, meet to discuss the ,problems of the school, plans for progress, or any- thing else that comes to their atten- tion, for the betterment of the school is foremost in their minds. Each committeeman is a represent- ative of one of the five communi- ties that make up North's territory, and like the student body, their in- terest is centered in the welfare of the entire school.

What a thrill it was to be the very top class and to know that what you had worked toward for such a long time was nearing the end, and that such a wonderful thing could happen to one. There was the thrill one got from marching into chapel after everyone else was in and stood for you to enter the thrill of anticipating the arrival of the rings, and what a long wait it seemed before they came . . . the thrill of getting to "shine" that ring on every Junior the thrill of 20 looking forward to the Washington trip and having to save a dollar here and a dollar there in order to go . . . the thrill of the Junior-Senior and being a guest and not having to work to make it a success . . . the thrill of Class Day, Baccalaureate Exercises and finally Com- mencement. . . But with what regret one comes to the parting of the way! Thrilling? Yes, but tempered with nostalgia for the best year yet!!!

How many would you like to buy?" could be heard throughout the vicinity. Then came the play, Junior Miss, directed by the class sponsor, Miss Kiker. This was given during the month of November. After the second act of the play, the cast presented an album of THE MESSIAH to Miss Kiker. The reason for all this activity? To provide funds for financing the most important social occasion of the year-the Junior-Senior Prom. All year there was one thing uppermost in the minds of the Juniors, and that was to give the Seniors the very best prom possible. And what a buzz of activity there was getting every- thing ready each year. Juniors scampered here and there making decorations, getting invitations out, planning menus, and doing many other things neces- sary for a well-planned formal. But it was fun-one got out of class sometimes and there were errands to be run away from the school. "Lucky Juniors!" thought the underclassmen. But perhaps the greatest thrill of all was being measured for rings. Only once in a life time does that happen -that of really reaching one of the last mile- stones in finishing high school. And what a thrill it was! Ask any Junior and he will tell you that being a Junior wasn't so bad-in fact, being a Junior was just plain wonderful. .H Eixgsrfi - Y- ii N- '-11 - A-Jw Img-sift v 'la e " 1? - . . gf. was ff - - ' 1 I-1,-Ti' "12i'i5T:Lv'iI 'if -A .J -f:Afw'fww?-f., -Q -.,,. -' E ffm ..::.szz-Q 2 N,,-.

READI G CLASS The purpose of the Reading class is to help anyone North and should prove beneficial to those who are who wishes to improve his reading speed and com- interested enough to try to improve their reading, since prehension. Mr. Biggerstaff, 'the instructor, gives reading is essential in any class or in any vocation special help to all who need it. This is a new class at or in any profession.

And all of the time this was being done, one sat waiting nervously, afraid that he would not be ROGER ADCOCK JANE ALDRED LU ANN ALEXANDER placed in the homeroom with other students he had known before. And one found that could be a fact, for many were separated from old friends, but there were many new friends to be made. And the year began- --that of being in a senior high school.

Members of the three classes at North make up the staff. New members are taken from the sophomore class and most of the staff members work on the annual for the three years they are at North. The Activities Editor, Barbara Reid, is responsible for the largest section of the book, the clubs. She is assisted by Marie Fisher, Betsy Schenck, Edna McAulay, and Sondra Harpe, Getting a dummy planned tor these activities and getting the pictures made is no small iob. But Barbara says getting out of class to do this is fun. Jimmy DeArmon is Sports Editor for THE VIKING. For Ernest Curry, Bill Thompson, and Wesley Hargette, new members an the staff, there has been much work. The End that they plan pages and then when the pictures arrive the pages are to be planned again to fit the pictures, Their constant cry has been, "We need more pages. Give us more pages." 31- Pictures! Pictures! Pictures! And all To be iden- tified, That's the iob of the CLASSES ASSIS- TANTS, Mildred Wike and Judy Readling. lt's an old iob to Peggy Trexler, the CLASSES EDITOR. N- A happy group! They certainly have a right to be happy for all the subscrip- tions and advertisements are in and the budget set. Janice Cannon assists Jane Brockenbrough, CIRCULATION MANAGER, along with Bill Cook. Earl Link is assistant to Tommy Oehler, ADVERTISING MANAGER. I957 THE VIKING stafif begins work the very first week of school. Ap- pointments have been made with the photographer for his work to begin soon after the opening date, and a budget must be set up so that everyone will know how much money can be spent. That calls for getting advertising to help defray the expenses of publishing the yearbook. And can that be work! But it's fun. Then a dummy must be made before the group photographer can get to work. He has to know the number of pictures to be made and whether they are to be close ups or not. After the dummy is drawn, it's likely that the pictures will not fit the space provided and the drawing has to be done once again. But with all this the publisher provided another dummy to be sent in with the pictures, and there are two carbons made of this. Just think of all the erasing every time an error is made. Of course the staff never has any erasing to do. Ask Ernest. Fun can be had working with the group to make every year's book better than the last. Janice Lane assists Nellie Kidd, Features Editor Working on this section is not too hard for few pages are involved. Jerry Abernathy has to be on the move when Mrs. Barfield is Ask Jan Sutton what oliice she holds on the staff and she will answer taking pictures. It is Jerry's iob as photographer to develop the "Errand Runner." But a good errand girl is quite necessary, She and Frances negatives and re-load the holders as quickly as possible.

ORTH STAR STAFF "Buy a NORTH STAR! Only ten cents!" can be heard in the hall every two weeks. It is an indication that another two weeks' work has been completed, and students can read the news that is of interest to everyone of them. The staff under the leadership of Robert Davidson and Jerry Rich, with Mrs. Daggy and Mrs. Hanson to advise them, has made great strides in putting out a mimeographed newspaper. It is much more work to mimeograph the paper, but it is also much more satis- factory. Under this plan the staff can have as large a paper as they wish and, it desired, can publish an extra edition.

The tapping ceremony of the Beta Club is most impressive. Be- fore the new members are taken in, they are told of the purpose and the meaning of the club. This was done this year by means of the keys which unlocked the door to membership in the club. This was a very serious occasion, and the new members were quite hon- ored by being chosen. The Beta Club is a national organization and ranks high on the list of clubs tor any school. The members of the club have to maintain an average of 94 in all their subiects and have to be leaders in character and service. The purpose of the organization is to promote the ideals of honesty, nd leadership among the high school students, to reward meritor- ious achievement, and to encourage and assist students to continue their education after high school. Last year the club awarded a fifty dollar scholarship on the basis of character and scholarship, and on the basis of a theme, "Why l Would Like to Go to College." This scholarship was given to Bobby Redwine. They plan to give another this year.

This committee is composed of Gwe rnmmv n Whitener, Barbara Somers, Wilma Morgan, Barbara Metcalf, Johnny Raymer Mahler and Clit-T Blvthe. Wilma Moraon is the chairman. The Student Council is possibly the most important organization of any school, and North's organization ranks high in all phases. The Council is composed of the members of the student body, and each spring there is an election to choose the four otticers of the Council. These tour officers are from the student body at large, the president coming from the rising senior class, the vice- president from the rising iunior class, and the secretary and the treasurer coming from the student body at large. The homeroom presidents are also members of the Stu- dent Council as are the presidents of all clubs that meet three times each week. This gives the Council quite a large membership. It is the duty and responsibility of each homeroom president and club president to report to the class and club any matter taken up by the Council, and it is also their duty to bring anything before the Council from their group. This is how the student body keeps in touch with things taking place in their representative body. The newspaper also keeps the students informed. Many students think that the Student Council runs the school, but that is not true. The Council does provide the leadership for the student body, but all issues must be passed by their sponsor, Mrs. Holbrook, and the prin- cipal, Mr. Hough. They make suggestions and recommen- dations, but the final authority is with the principal.

The SAFETY COMMITTEE is selected to work on the pro- ject sponsored by the Mecklenburg County Police in their "Live and Let Live" program. The purposc cf this program is to make students safety conscious, especially on the high- way. North competes against West and East in this program, and each year the three schools keep a scrap book of their activities. These books and the activities they cover are judged by the police department. North was a winner one year. ' Forming a safety club, exhibiting a wrecked car on the school grounds, placing signs in the halls and on the high- way, and sponsoring a safety contest in the junior high schools are some of the projects of the safety committee. Herman Mims staples the sign to the support with Nicky Brown's help. Bill Thompson and Don Hamp- ton are interested spectators, but Allyn Kerley lends assistance from the back of the sign. ODEL BUILDI G LUB The Model Building Club was formed this year. It was organized to give students an opportunity to express themselves through the building of models as a hobby. Some of them put model cars to- gether, others put planes together, and some have original ideas they carry out. Mr. Cochran is the adviser for this club. Its members are Marlene Ussery, Jane Bost, Maxine Smith, Jesse Smith, Johnny Auten, Warren Rawdon, Jimmy Brown, and Mr. Cochran. The Advanced Math Class is sponsored by Mrs. Hclisley. The projects of the class are to study trigon- ometry, logarithms, arthmetic, and geometric progres- sions, permutation and probability. The purpose of the club is to gain a greater under- standing of higher mathematics which would not be covered in high school otherwise.

TEACHER QF THE YEAR "ln the fall of 1951, September 4, North Mecklen- burg Senior High School opened its doors to the stu- dents from Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Long Creek and Derita. Today we are proud of North and view her short history with pride ancl fond memories. We feel and know that North is an outstanding school. We also know that no school can be stronger than its teachers. In this respect we have been extremely fortunate. When North opened in 1951, seven of our present teachers were on the faculty. Recently your group, the PTA, asked a representative group of stu- dents to select from these seven, the teacher who they felt had rendered the most outstanding service to the school. This proved to be a hard decision to make, because each of these seven has served the school faith- fully in his own way. These teachers have given of their time, talents, and interests to make North High a school dedicated to the whole education of each indi- vidual student. Tonight, however, we would like to pay special honor to a lady who has served the students of North far beyond her call of duty. In the classroom she is a thorough, patient, and understanding teacher who knows her subiect and knows how to teach it. Her extra-curricular activities are too numerous to mention -Jr-Sr class sponsor, club work, and Student Council are only a few. For the past three years she has served as Guidance Counselor of the school. ln this capacity she has excelled. The Students have great faith in her gentle wisdom in helping them to make the right de- cisions in many fields of life...colleae, vocational choices, and others. She is deserving of all the love, admiration, and respect we have for her. Mrs. Holbrook, our love and appreciation will always be with you. Our sincerest congratulations." Mrs. Christine Holbrook Students in Mr. BiggerstaFf's class think the book credit of all.

With only a minute left in a scoreless game, Myers Park lunged across the line for a 6-point win over the Rebs. North fielded a surprisingly well- balanced and smooth working eleven. Most of the Rebel squad saw continuous action, as Coach Hurd did not have the material to spell the regulars. BELMONT I9 -NORTH 7 North bowed to Belmont tor a T9-7 loss. North's only score came after a Baucom-Nixon pass tor 30 yards in the fourth, with Earl Link bucking over from the two. Jerry Davis converted. Link intercepted three passes to help hold Belmont. Clift Blythe featured for North in the line. Johnny Roynier scarnpered toward pay dirt on a 64-yard pass play. The ball soared over the Wincotit goal post tor Northfs last score ot the l956 season, and Jerry Davis, who made this last point, had lust made the lost touchdown in a run around left end. tw.. ae -3 TOMMY OEHLER, CofCaptain Earl Link, Pat Willis, Jerry Davis, Jett Jones, Marshal Lowrence, Johnny Dover, Cliff Blythe, Jim De' Armon, Larry Farrington, Dickey Batchelor, Bill Cook, Lawrence Kimbrough, Danny Thornton, Johnny Bourdeaux, Merle Holtzclaw, and John Gammon.

The Rebs made their most serious bid to score in the final minutes, reach- ing the Harding 21 on passes by Baucom, Defensive- ly, Oehler and Davis led the losing Rebs. But a change of subiect would be welcomed here. NORTH 35 WEST 12 North ends 13-game losing streak 35-12. What sweet words those were! North swamped West at Memorial Stadium. At half-time North was trailing West I2-7. lt seemed as if this would be another one of those lost games. But the Rebs turned loose a covey of smart running backs, intercepted two passes, scored on one and set up a touchdown with the other. For North, Baucom, Davis, and Link ran well, with Oehler, Nixon, and Hampton leading the defensive struggle. Parkas were the fashion for the players on the bench, Brrrrr!

NORTH 6 LANDIS 6 North Mecklenburg Rebels showed again they coud do it, but penalties checked the Rebs who were forced to settle for a 6-6 tie with Landis at David- son. The Rebs had two touchdowns called back for penalties. The lone North touch- down was scored by Bourdeaux on a quarterback sneak after Davis had zoomed 60 yards to set up the payoFF plunge. Kimbrough, without a minute's game ex- perience, took over the quarterback spot in the fourth quarter. NORTH 7 EAST 7 Although predictions gave East a two- touchdown edge over North, the game ended in a tie. Oehler fell on an East fumble in the end zone tor the touchdown, and Davis converted. East then evened the score by a touchdown and booting the extra point. North had the ball in the final seconds of the game, and Jerry Davis, who had been iniured in play, tried a field goal, but failed lu make it. Cliff was ready and wailing for the Winecott eleven as the signal was given for the clock to be started and play to be resumed. s , Q . NORTH 27-CATHOLIC 'l3 D. G. Martin caught a pass in the North-Winecoff game to help North push on toward a winning score. The Catholics found Coach Hurd's line led by Oehler and Blythe too strong for them. North started early to wrap up the decision, scoring 13 points in the first quarter. Davis smacked over from the one and booted the extra point to make it 7-0. Then Link fell on a fumble in the Catholic end zone to push it to 'I3-O. Baucom chunked a nine-year aerial to Martin for the first of two third- quarter scores, and Nixon slashed nine yards for the final score.

NORTH 7 -MOORESVILLE O The Rebs capitalized on a blocked kick to turn back Mooresville, 7-O in Mooresville. After a score- less first half, North's Raymer barged in to block a Mooresville punt on the Mocresville 25-yard line. Link, on the first play from scrimmage, galloped to the 3-yard line to go over onthe next play. And that wrapped up another win. The taste of victory was exhilarating! NORTH I4 -WINECOFF O Things looked dim at the first of the season, but the Rebs ignored the barbs tossed at them. It was the last game and North flew past Winecoft at Davidson for a I4-O win. Bourdeaux started things off in the first quarter when an interception gave the Rebs a chance. Bourdeaux completed a 64-yard pass play to Raymer to get things going. Link raced around right end for T5 yards and the touchdown. The homecoming crowd then saw the Rebs hit the jack-pot again in the final seconds ofthe game. Winecoft fumbled and Gant recovered. A Bour- deaux pass hit Davis for the icing, and North wrapped up a winning season-four won, two tied, and three lost. The Rebels carried Coach Haynes and Coach Hurd off the held after breaking the iinx that had followed them for l3 games. They routed West 35-12. .i""'N N...- Buddy McConnell, Jerry Davis, D. G.

The players were divided equally, one side wearing the blue uniforms and the other, the white uniforms. The student body was permitted to watch the game. The boys put just as much enthusiasm into playing as if it were a regular game, for the competition was great. The students also selected a favorite and pulled hard for them to win.

HGMECOMING - WELCQME MAT OUT FOR LL! Homecoming is one of the most festive affairs at North Mecklenburg. Preparation begins weeks ahead and student interest is at a peak. The entire week before the homecoming game is filled with exciting events. First, there is competition among the home- rooms for the best display concerning the game or homecoming. Miss Kiker's homeroom won the prize this year with a display depicting the hanging of the Wine- colt Blue Devil by the Rebs. On Thursday before the game, there was a bonfire held on the school grounds. This year the rain sent boosters indoors for a while, but it took more than a shower of rain to dampen spirits and keep students away from the bonfire, which was burning high and bright. And spirits were still high on the night of the game. All of the sponsors were there, each one with that "queasy" little feeling of excitement and anticipation, wondering who the queen would be. And the excitement came to a climax with a dance held at the school. Many of the graduates were back for the occasion, and many of the student body were present, all with, eyes glowing with excitement and happiness. lt was a whole week of ioy, never to be forgotten! The queen, Frances Chapman, receives a crown and a bouquet from last year's queen, Linda Little.

Alain Boiton, King FALL FESTIVAL "Could you tell me who's ahead, now? I want to know so that I can get out and get more votes for my candidate." Those were familiar words to the sponsor of the king and queen contest. Rattling boxes and iingling pockets filled with pennies and nickels were KING AND QUEEN common sights, and workers were filled with enthus- iasm. The event was ci great success, and Shelby Russ and Alain Boiton were crowned queen and king, respectively. IIAI Dudley Callicut croons while participating in the talent contest.

'Course Barbara didn't do much of the moving around but leave that to Link. He really gets hep when he begins to dance FALL FESTIVAL TALENT SHOW Each year the school participates in the Fall Festi- val, which has been sponsored by the PTA for the past two years. The big event of the festival is the talent show. Bill Workman and Maurice Mclntosh won first place in the talent contest. Bill sang a folk song, accompanied by Maurice on the guitar. The king and queen are selected by votes from the student body, each vote costing one cent. This is the best money-making project of the occasion, for interest always runs high in this contest. The good sportsman- ship displayed by these contestants is wonderful. After the crowning of the king and queen and the iudging of the talent show, the concessions open for business. One can get a hot dog with all the trimmings and something to drink or candy or cookies. Madame Kiker always delights the students by doing some rather accurate palm reading. A sock hop is held in the gym for the students. The country store and a cake walk are also interesting features of the festival. Financially, the festival was the greatest success of any that the school has held. Part of the money will be used to buy a movie camera for the school. Part will go to finance the trip of the student who wins the World Peace speech contest. All of this money finds its way back in the school and its activities. 115 For the month of September, the student body chose Bobby Baucom was STUDENT OF THE MONTH for TUDE T OF THE MO y TH Since the very first year of North's existence, the homerooms have nominated from the student body a person who they think has done something outstand- ing for which he should be recognized. From these nominations the STUDENT OF THE MONTH is selected by a committee of students and teachers. This is not a standing committee, but it is made up of different people each time a selection is to be made. It is in- deed an honor to be chosen North's STUDENT OF THE MONTH. Bobby Thompson as the STUDENT OF THE MONTH. Bobby is president of the Beta Club and treasurer of the senior class. He has devoted much of his time to working on the Chapel and Devotions Committee of the Student Council. He also works quietly and effi- ciently to keep the finances of the seniors in order. Wilma Morgan was chosen STUDENT OF THE MON- TH for October. She is secretary of the senior class and president of the Y-Teens. She is chairman of the Booster Committee and has done outstanding work on this committee, especially for the homecoming festivi- ties. Bobby Thompson Wilma Morgan November. He is an active member of THE VIKING staff, Hi-Y, Student Council, and the Monogram Club. He is president of the Key Club. He does outstanding work in the agriculture department and was an out- standing football player for North. In December Jerry Davis was chosen STUDENT OF THE MONTH. He was selected for his participation on the baseball, basketball, and football teams. He has done much to promote school spirit and is an out- standing school citizen. Bobby Boucom 1l6 Jerry Davis GIRLS' STATE BOYS' STATE Girls' State is sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. Each year the Auxiliary sends several rising senior girls to Greensboro, North Carolina, where they are housed on the campus of WCUNC. For one week these girls learn how our governments, federal and local, operate. They form parties and run for office just as earnestly as if they were actually running for that office in their communities. They listen to cam- paign speeches, made by their fellow members, and they have to make the decision for whom to cast a ballot. They learn the principles by actually putting them into practice. But all is not work and learning about government. They also learn to make friends and get along with their fellow citizens. An excellent recreation program is planned for each day, and this is the high spot of the day's activities for the girls. They make a report on all their activities when they return. Boys' State is sponsored by the American Legion. The boys meet on the UNC campus at Chapel Hill. They organize parties similar to that of their country, and then they try to get their candidates elected to the offices, such as governor, lieutenant-governor, etc. Elections are held just as they are in the federal and local governments, speeches are just as appealing and emphatic as any made by a local candidate, and they are just as proud of winning an election. Interest is kept at a high pitch because of the keen competi- tion between the parties. Fun is also on the program of Boys' State, planned and otherwise. Many a pillow fight takes place after lights are out, and pranks are played on unsuspect- ing boys. Recreations programs are worked out to keep the boys busy. They visit the capital and the governor receives them there. All of them have a wonderful time.

After each lunch period and after school, the halls are gone over with a dry mop to keep the dust from being tracked into the classrooms. Each day the rooms are gone over to keep the dust from becoming a health hazard. Then there's dusting and many other housekeeping chores to be per- formed, not just once, but daily. The maids and the ianitor try to keep things as they should be. They are Katherine Berry, Minnie Gibson, and Andrew Bright. Mr. Hugh Deato. is the Custodian of the buildings.

Many school activities were planned, and the commencement exercises anticipated with mixed emotions. There was the wonderful feeling one had when thinking about getting out of school and being on one's own either at work or at college. But there was the sadness of parting with friends with One incident which afforded much amusement to the student body and much embarrassment to one member of the faculty will live long in the memory of those who were in assembly when the band gave its last concert. Gerald Bradley was doing a take-oFf on Little Red Riding Hood, and using "bop" language to tell his story. The band assisted by playing appropriate songs 'Js he told his story. "Once upon o time there lived a real hep doll called Little Bop Riding Hood. . IThe band played real hot blues.l Little Bop said, "Man, l'm going over to Grand- mother's house." IThe band played DARLING I AM COMMENCEMENT ACTIVITIES! whom one had been associated for many years. Some of them would never meet again, and things would never be the same. But then all things must change, and one would not have it otherwise. But there were memories which were strong and which would endure over the years. Some of these memories have been captured in pictures for all to enjoy. GROWING OLD.l About this time Mrs. Barfield realized what a good picture this would make for the annual and sent Jerry Abernathy flying to the room for the camera. Mean- while, the story continued, and Jerry returned. Mrs. Barfield took the camera and stepped out inthe aisle to go to the front when Gerald continued, "And Little Bop walked down the street." Those who saw Mrs. B. began to laugh, and as she walked to the front you could hear the laughter swell as each new row of stu- dents saw her. She stopped the show completely, but she got her picture. And you can imagine what she was called for some time. I 120 B Endman Avon Hager gave an amusing monologue, When one of the student actors became ill, Mrs. Barfield took the part of Mandy Clemson with Larry Joe Dove as Lawyer Butler and Don Hefner as Mr. Clemson. DIXIELA D MINSTREL Make-up had been applied with the usual confusion in the dressing rooms, and everyone was on stage when the blast of the opening chord and voices singing ARE YOU FROM DIXIE opened the curtain on the third annual DIXIELAND MINSTREL, sponsored by the Student Council and directed by Mrs. Ruth Barfield. There was an atmosphere af gaity and fun as the endmen and chorus entertained with iokes and songs. The finale of the first part was followed by a black-face skit, and then came North's talented performers with song and dance rou- tines. One wondered haw so much talent could be found in one school. But like all things, the time came for the closing of the final curtain, with students and audience looking forward to another year and another minstrel. What a lively group! Endmen Thompson, Hampton, and Hefner take it easy between routines. Interlocutor Otten and Endman Hampton tried their hands at entertaining. Pretty good, too. Professor Wang's Oration. Endmen Hugh Burger and Bobby Thompson did one of their routines with Interlocutor Henry Otten standing by. "Uh, Mr. Interlocutor," said Endmon Larry Joe Dove to Henry Otten. "Have you heard...?" Jim Grubbs, Mary Young, Marviean McGinnis, Ronald Beard, and the entire company did well with When You Wore a Tulip. I956 TU DENTS OF THE MO TH GEORGE ROGERS Each month the homerooms make nominations for the selection of a student who has done something out- standing during that month. These nominations are then studied and discussed by a different group of stu- dents each month, andthe person they feel is most deserving is chosen as STUDENT OF THE MONTH. A faculty member supervises the election meeting. lt is quite an honor at North to be chosen STUDENT OF THE MONTH. In February of l956 George Rogers was selected STUDENT OF THE MONTH for his outstanding record in basketball. He had the highest scoring average in the city-county conference. Raymond Phillips received an award in March for his work as editor of the newspaper, THE NORTH STAR. The staff started mimeographing the paper so that the students could get issues more frequently. Raymond worked tirelessly to achieve this. RAYMOND PHILLIPS Joe Grubbs was selected STUDENT OF THE MONTH for his outstanding work as president of the Senior class and as chairman of the Social Committee in the Student Council. Joe made every effort to make his class successful in every way. In May two students were chosen. Leon Reed Adams was selected for his acomplishments as president of the Student Council. No one ever showed more interest in the council than Red. Also selected in May was Betty Sue McCorkle for a iob well done as editor of THE VIKING. She gave tirelessly of her time after school, at night, and on week-ends, so that the students might have a yearbook of which thev could be proud. JOE GRUBBS LEON REED ADAMS BETTY SU E MCCORKLE LEON REED ADAMS CIVITAN AWARD WINNER Joe Grubbs entered North in his sophomore year, became a member of the debating team and advanced three times to the district meet before being elimin- ated. In his iunior year Joe was elected president of his class. He played football and basketball. During his senior year Joe was once again presi- dent of his class, He was a member of the Key Club, Bible Club, and Student Council. He was a Junior Rotarian and won an award along with another senior for being an outstanding representative from North at the monthly meetings of the North Charlotte Rotary Club. He attended Boys' State, and was selected as one of two people to represent North Carolina at Boys' Nation in Washington, D.C. Joe entered many speech contests and placed in most of them. Joe was truly a good school citizen and deserved the Civitan Award which is given for outstanding citizenship. STUDENT OF THE YEAR Leon Reed l"Red"t Adams entered North in his sophomore year. He was elected president of his class, and the following year was elected vice-president of the student body. ln his senior year he was president ofthe Student Council. "Red" proved himself to be outstanding in the per- formance of his duties as president of the student body. His first interest was the school and its welfare. He presided over assembly each week with proficiency, showing the ability to stand before students and visi- tors with equal poise. He was never failing in the performance of his duties. He was chosen STUDENT OF THE MONTH because of these qualities and from that group was chosen l956 STUDENT OF THE YEAR. "Red" also won other honors which helped his win- ning this coveted title. He won the World Peace Speech Contest and a trip to New York. He was a member of the Key Club, a Junior Rotarian, and a representative from North to Boys' State. "Red" entered into any project with only one idea that ofputting it across. He was indeed STUDENT OF THE YEAR. JOE GRUBBS . ft.
