I rimcljpali To the Semlor Class of 52: Any message at this time should begin with congratulation to you, a class that has proven that the worth of the individual is an important factor in any society that has as its aim, " Democratic Living " . Four years ago we started out together believing that each one of you had some contribution to make towards the overall development of Northampton County High School, and today we can look back with pride at your contributions, re¬ gardless of how small or great they may have been. To us they have been contri¬ butions well made. We have tried to guide you by democratic principles and through this same medium you have interpreted your school program to our community. Through you the community has gained confidence in its educational system and now this confidence must be kept forever burning just as your " Lighthouse " . We regret to think that you are leaving at a time when the trend is point¬ ing towards better facilities for the educational Advancement of the youth of our County. Still we realize that school is simply living, and in life oftimes those who have paved the way are not granted the privilege to reap the full benefits of the finished product. The memory of your contributions, however, will be a part of the total pattern. As you go from these walls, ve know you will carry many things, some of whioh will soon be forgotten, hut we wish you to remember that you still have greater contributions to make to this " American way of life " . Tour Alma Mater ' s achievements will be more effective over and beyond the things that have already been brought forth because of you. Those of us who have been entrusted with your well being thus far, wish for you all the success possible, but, beyond that, we are eager to see you exert yourselves to do good and grow nobly. Finally, Class of 52, as in former years we wish to congratulate you for the perpetuation of an integral part of your school life, namely, " The Lighthouse " It has for many years been lighting the pathway of Northampton ' s graduates. The way that you have cooperated in making litis one of the most successful issues since its beginning should prove a valuable experience to you in the future. W. H. Smith ■ .

Secretary Violet Harmon David Sheppard Sgt. At Arms 1 O ' Dear Mildred, 1952 Graduation Avenue June 3, 1972 It seems a long time since we graduated from Northampton County High School. Last night I was looking through the yearbook of 1952, but whose face should greet me but Verdell Adair ' s. Didyou know that he is tamer and operator of a large dude ranch out in Wyoming? His wife Who was formerly Miss Annie Anderson is doing his book-keeping. When I visited them last year he showed me around his beautiful ranch. It seems that Sidney Harmon, who did the bricklaying for the new school back in 52 has gone to Europe to study French, German and Italian, and David Sheppard who blows a trumpet has just finished paying a $100 fine for disturbing the peace trying to play " In My Solitude " . Since that time he has composed another song, " No Money Blues " . You could never guess in a hundred years what Mildred Stewart and Franklin Brisco are doing. She is now Mrs. Brisco and t eacher at the R. G. H. School of Dancing. He is the designer of the costumes for her students, all of which are girls. Mrs. Brisco recently received an honorary degree from Yale University. Hilton Staith, who always aspired to be a doctor is now director of a hospital for crippled cats and dogs. His wife, Mrs. Mable Chapman Smith is head nur3Q. She completed her training last June after spending eight years at the Lame Brain Institute for Practical Nurses. The members of the staff are: Dr. John Powell, idio is head of the Department of Nervous Diseases of Cats, Lizzie Floyd, dietician and Willie Spady, chief cook. Across the street from Dr. Smith ' s hospital is Mr. Samuel Anderson ' s undertaking parlor. Miss Daisy Downing, is head beautician. And of course you remember Constance Fox, who was Valedictorian of our class; she once aspired to became a writer, in twenty long years she has only published two books: Titles, " Gloomy Gus " and " Henpecked Sue " . They were so incoherent and hilarious that the people who read them immediately vent insane from laughing. So she was put out of business. Charles Bell is now Rev. Bell, he is pastor of Bloomtngyale Baptist Church in Possum Creek. What ' s more the deacons of the church are, Earl Wescott, Charles Smith, Thomas Bartee and Joshua Cos ton. Rev. Bell ' s organist and choir director is Grover Watson, who graduated from the Ear Splitting School of Instrumental Music in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Mabel Downing and Jacqueline Bartee are partners in a sewing shop. Their employees are Flossie Doughty, Winnie Harmon, Margaret Savage and Shirley Spady. Flos ale was so busy running her mouth that she sewed the zippers at the hem of the dresses and the sleeves at the side. Of course, if she had remained with the firm their businesses would ' ve been ruined,so they had to fire her. Mrs. Flossie Floyd Fisher, wife of Attorney Harvey Fisher, who took Home Economics for three long years doesn ' t know yet how to economize. Attorney Fisher is so tired of eating beans and potatoes he ' s afraid he ' ll be sprouting potatoes after one more meal. The family physician, who is Florence Simpkins, has put him on a diet. He is now weighing 220 pounds and seems to be gaining at the rate of a pound a week. Henry Allen and Bernard Jones are now owners of a large restaurant in Eat No More, Michigan. Their employees are Mildred Church, dishwasher, waitresses Shirley Johnson, Ella Upshur, Estelle Robinson and Deloris Morris. Chef Cooks are Maurice Weeks and Fred Johnscm Mr. Weeks ' speciality is snail salad and Mr. Johnson ' s is homemade rolls and buns. Dorine Scott, Betty Harmon and Dolores Onley have gone to the Old Maid ' s Rest Home in Stop In, Ga. Betty, who is a millionaire, now spends her spare time worrying over her boy friend, Silas Gates. She lost him while making all this money at the Gooseberry Jam Factory in Jam ' Em In The Jar, La. Who would ' ve thought Dorine Scott, who once weighed 98 pounds is now tipping the scales at 195 lbs. She can only leave her roan in the specially designed wheel chair. Dolores Onley has so many " Prince Charmings " in her past and has broken up so many hones, that Sudie Beckett, who is now Judge of Keep Your Man At H ne Court has sent¬ enced her to the Old Maid ' s Rest Home for life. Here ' s hoping no one opens up a Bachelors Rest Home anywhere nearby, or the .charming Miss Onley might start another panic. Florence Beckett, Nellie Long, Jene Weeks and Uilsie Waters are now models for Franklin Victory at the Shapless Modeling Theater in Poor Style, Minnesota. Mr. Victory, still a bachelor after all these years,is being " chased " by all four of his models. Feature This] 11 Franklin Victory,who was once an all star football player at Northampton County High, is designer of his models clothes. Johnson Harmon, is now an art director in Switzerland and his students are Josephine Sample, Mary Bailey, Dinah Brooks, Lucille Clayton and Anna Warren. Mildred, you can never tell what the future may bring. Who would’ve thought that twenty years from your graduation you would be washing dishes in a restaurant belonging to two of your former classmates. I hope you have found this letter interesting because thetime has cone for me to close, but I couldn ' t possibly close without mentioning the fact that Violet Harmon is nc ? Secretary of the new Northampton County High School. She graduated from the Secretarial School in Orangeville, Nevada. Affectionately yours, Mabel Chapmen Smith (Mrs. Hilton Smith) CHERISHED MEMORIES Today we are leaving, ol ' Northampton High Our schooldays are nearing an end The moss covered buildings The campus so dear Their memory will burn Throughout our career We’ll cherish thy precepts, ol’ Northampton Hi Thy honor we’ll ever regard We ' ll ever be faithful And always be true Our hopes for the future Were inspired by you. All hail to thy colors, ol ' Norttempton Hi Maroon and gold banners we fly Maroon stands for richness And gold is the light That beams from the Lighthouse Its beacon, so bright. Composed by We, the graduating class of 1952, entered the secondary level of our educational career as freshmen in the Northampton County High School on September 8, 1948. During that year. Miss Luberta Felton of Freshman n B " , von the title of " Queen " on Homecoming Day. The other contestants were Barbara Beech of Section " A " and Flossie Floyd of Section " C " . Also in our freshmen year two members of our class, Carl Bailey and Franklin Victory, were stars on the Football Team. We are grateful to Mr. A. B. Whitehead, Miss D. M. Turner, and Mr. W. W. King for their patience and guidance in leading us through this new and exciting period as Freshmen. September 9, 1949, found us continuing our search for knowledge. We returned to the Northampton County High School as determined and energetic Sophomores. We were more acquainted with the School, and we found our Sophomore year more interesting than our Freshman year. Although a few of our classmates dropped out, we still worked towards our goal to make that another banner year. Vaughan Downing, Section " B " , won the title of " King " an Homecoming Day that year. Also in our Sophomore year Miss Betty Harmon was elected " Queen " . The other contestants were Misses Shirley Johnson and Flossie Floyd. The year 1950 remains a banner year in the history of this class. It was September 10, of that year that we enrolled at Northampton County High School as upper classmen. Instead of the three sections of our Freshman and Sophomore years, we were divided into two sections. That year gave us an air of distinction, and we were more determined that no obstacle or temptation could change our will to carry on. We were proud to have Miss Shirley Spady of Section " A " elected " May Queen " . The other contestant was Miss Jene Weeks of Section " B " . Eugene Jackson and Franklin Victory were outstanding players on the Football Team. Franklin Victory was also fullback on the defensive team of the Eastern Division, VIAL. At the end of this successful year, we were grateful for the patience and understanding of our homeroom teachers, Mr. A. B. Whitehead, and Mrs. H. D. Upshur. Their inspiration and faith in our ability kept us going. Finally, on September 10, 1951, we reached our highest classification at the Northampton County High School. We entered with all the pride and dignity usually attributed to Seniors. Jene Weeks, Senior " B® was " Miss Homecoming and Daisy Downing was the contestant from the Senior " A " Class. Our contestants for " May Queen " this year are Dolores Onley of Section " A " and Jene Weeks of Section " B " . The representatives of our class fctStudent Council are, Daisy Downing, Verde!1 Adair, Mildred Steward and John Powell. We regret that our loyal classmate, John Branch, will not be able to graduate this year with our class, for he was called by the Army last Spring. Our deep sympathy goes out to the relatives and friends of our classmate Sgt. Homer Wilson, who gave his life in Korea that our country might be a better place in which all citizens could live, regardless of color or creed. For Mr. Smith, our Principal, and all the members of the Faculty, we shall always keep in our hearts a warm spot for their comradeship and excellent leadership. Ve,the class of 1952, wish the class of 1953 a successful senior year.
