We dedicate this book as a token of our esteem and gratitude for the help he has administered during his stay at Northampton County High School. To Mr. Vasser we want to wish the best of luck in the teaching career and also his personal life. THE SENIORS MR. T. R. VASSER PRINCIPAL ' S MESSAGE My young friends, June 1958 Graduates, we would like first to remind you in this ninth issue of our “Lighthouse” that you have the distinction of being the first class to begin and complete its high school education from the New Northampton County High School. You have seen and been an integral part in its rapid development, and now you must carry that same burning desire to help foster its principles and ideals into your future endeavors. You are about to enter an age of space travel, missiles, and satellites, but it need not be an age of destruction. It should prove an age of new frontiers for the youth of our land with beckoning horizons, adventures, and new opportunities. This age into which you are about to be ushered will be a challenge to all that you have learned, but in times like these life finds its supreme happiness. Once you find something beyond yourselves to which you can give yourselves, the whole world takes on a new meaning. You are to be congratulated for having reached this station in life. I sincerely hope that you have appreciated every little gesture by those who have been responsible entirely or partially for the success you have obtained thus far. Congratulations for a job well done and best wishes for the future. W. H. SMITH, PRINCIPAL . ADMINISTRATION Mrs. M. B. Poole ENGLISH Mrs. I. J. Williams HOME ECONOMICS Mr. C. N.

We were also the first Eighth Grade Class to enter the new school. Our Principal, Mr. W. H. Smith, divided us into four sections: A, B, C, and D. Our Homeroom Teachers were Mrs. M. B. Collins, Miss D. M. Bell, Miss D. M. Turner, and Mrs. H. D. Upshur respectively. Under those teachers, we began our first year’s work with enthusiasm. We were represented in the Homecoming Festivities by Margaret Trower, Margaret Johnson, Gloria Wilson, and Juanita Marshall. Alice Harmon, Carrie Thomas, Beatrice Spady, and Mildred Jordan were our May Queen contestants. On September 1954, we became Freshmen. Our advisors were Mrs. H. D. Upshur (Freshman A), Mrs. M. B. Collins (Freshman B), and Mrs. E. D. McCuller (Freshman C). We were represented in the Homecoming Festivities by Marva Ashby, Freshman A; Dorothy Goffigon, Fre B; and Ruth Spady, Freshman C. Martha White, Juanita Marshall, and Florence Trader repress in the May Day Activities. In September 1955, we were sophisticated Sophomores. During this year our adv rs were Miss D. M. Turner, Sophomore A; Miss L. E. Upshur, Sophomore B; and Mr. John Cook, phomore C. Our representatives in the Homecoming Activities were Margaret Trower, Alice Harmon, and Gloria Wilson. Beulah Floyd and Carrie Thomas, and Dorothy Roane represented us in the May Day Activities. Since our class was next to the senior class, we gave the seniors a Prom which was very successful. On September 3, 1956, we entered school as Juniors and were divided into two sections under Mr. T. R. Vasser, Junior A; and Mrs. M. B. Poole, Junior B. Delois Smith, Junior A and Gloria Wilson, Junior B; represented us in the Homecoming Activities. Essie Hunt and Carrie Thomas were our May Queen Contestants. On September 3, 1957, we entered Northampton County High School as “Dignified Seniors” and our advisors were Mr. O. Kornegay, Jr., Senior A; and Mrs. M. B. Poole, Senior B. Upon reaching this year we knew that we were another step closer to our goals. We owe this to our parents, principal, and faculty members. Our contestants for Homecoming were Beulah Floyd, Senior A; and Carrie Thomas, Senior B. Our May Queen Contestants were Mary Scarborough and Mattie Church. To our faculty, we wish to express our grateful appreciation for the time and help that you have given us in the past that we might have success in the future.

We beg Thy continued blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country. “MEMBERS OF THE 1958 GRADUATING CLASS’ I SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY A look into the Crystal Ball with Gypsy Rose Louise. Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Come in and sit down with your money belts. Dig the dope on the future of the Graduating Class of 1958. Miss Lydia Spady, a great opera star in downtown No Tune, has her own opera house. Her manager is Mr. William Chapman. He keeps her busy trying to persuade her that being his wife is more important than being a singer. , Mr. Rutherford Sample resides in Africa with Messrs. James Upshur, James Benn and Frederick Reid. They are trying to get a license to manufacture woolen blankets for local use. Unfortunately they don’t know Natives don’t need woolen blankets in Africa. We see in Carrie Thomas’ Shoe Shop Misses Alice Harmon, Mildred Beckett and Annie Church. They are trying to figure out how Miss Thomas has such a fine shop catering to people only three feet tall. To solve this problem Miss Thomas shows them a sign over the door which says, “This shop is especially designed for midgets.” Mr. Paul Sample, a popular boy, back in high school now has a home for the aged. His staff includes such employees as Misses Ruth Spady, Dorothy Roane and Gloria Wilson. Secretly they are about to go out of business from a lack of old age patients. Miss Juanita Marshall has just returned from a tour of Paris with her husband the great composer, Mr. Donald George. They have three year old twins Donald and Ronald. The boys weigh eighty seven pounds each. They can’t seem to keep a baby sitter. Their last nurse, Miss Alice White, fled when the twins threatened to scalp her as the Indians do on television. Mr. Clarence Walker an All American football player has retired. He now raises buzzards for Thanksgiving. He has employed Misses Willie Church, Virginia Rogers and Betty Harris, but he is trying to clip Miss Harris’s wings into becoming his life partner. Miss Maxine Smith now heads a modeling agency. Her other models are Misses Marva Ashby, Sylvia Bacote, and Eugenia Spady. They call themselves “The Plump Models.” Well! Messrs. Burley Andrews and Johnnie Rowley tried the profession of ministry but they both got kicked out of church. Reason: They were flirting with the missionaries and keeping all the money. Miss Beulah Floyd has her own dancing studio in which she teaches all dances. Her specialists are Mr. Allen Baker, tap dancer; Mr. Roosevelt Spady, walk dancer; and Miss Essie Hunt, mambo dancer, s Miss Floyd calls her studio “The Cozy Fixed up Bombstand.” Messrs. Alvis Adair and Charles Hallett, two of our former basketball stars are spending a quiet vacation in California. They were sent there by mistake. Mr. Adair, a bird catcher, and Mr. Hallett, an oystershell roller, are looking for diamonds. They’re trying to impress Miss Carrie Gunter and Miss Mattie Church, respectively, so as to win the ladies’ hands in marriage. It is a surprise to see Miss Margaret Trower and Mr. John Francis, now known as Mr. and Mrs. John Francis. Mrs. Francis wants to spend her honeymoon in Kentucky; asked why she replied, “I am tired of seeing green grass; I want to see blue grass.” Mrs. Frank Holland, the former Miss Margaret Johnson, has finally hooked her lover. She runs an unlicensed bureau called “Catch and Hold Your Man.” Miss Delois Smith is enrolled trying to catch her favorite beau, who is a champion wrestler. Mildred Jordan an “A” student, is enrolled trying to catch Mr. Henderson Rowley, who has several medals for spear fishing. What an inspiring school!! At this time Messers. Joseph Nottingham, Sincroe Beckett, and Raymond Savage are arguing about who can “Walk” best. So far, Joseph “hops” good, Sincroe “runs” better, and Raymond “walks” best. These boys actually ride the freight train so much that they’ve forgotten how to use their feet or legs. Misses Ethel Giddens and Mary Scarborough teamed up as women wrestlers have just toured the world. They were accompanied by two nationally known male wrestlers, Mr. Robert Lindsey and Mr. Melvin Fox. They went around the world in a specially built airplane. What a fall that might have been. They are all going on diets soon, but they have been saying that for twenty years. Oh! yea, Miss Doris Upshur who was a quiet girl in “58” has flipped her coins. She bets tails with Miss Beatrice Spady over Mr. Wardell Nottingham. Doris says “Tails she wins or there’ll be no heads at all.” A last look in the Crystal Ball and what do we see!! Three boys playing loving bumble bees. Messrs. John Morris, Robert Joyner, and Calvin Roane are fighting over Miss Neva Moses, the quiet one. So far it is a tie between Robert and Calvin, since John is really more interested in his drawings than in anything else. The Crystal Ball is a little shook up; so I guess I’d better hop out and quit the scene for now. It has been a pleasure for me to keep you up to date and pass data on the happenings. This is Marva Ashby, as Madam Rose Louise, saying, “So long until another graduating class passes my way.” SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS MARVA ASHBY Treasurer BURLEY ANDREWS Sergeant at Arms DONALD GEORGE Vice-President JUANITA MARSHALL Business Manager LYDIA SPADY Secretary DOROTHY ROANE Assistant Secretary MILDRED JORDAN Chaplain SENIOR SUPERLATIVES BEST CITIZENS Doris Upshur and Donald George BEST DRESSED Sylvia Bacote and Frank Holland TALLEST Ethel Giddens and Melvin Fox SMALLEST Eugenia Spady and Johnnie Rowley a . 1 4 ; , ■ NEATEST Beulah Floyd and Joseph Nottingham MOST UNCOOPERATIVE Delois Smith and James Upshur CUTEST Juanita Marshall and John Francis BEST DANCERS Betty Harris and Joseph Nottingham :j | 1 k BEST SINGERS Lydia Spady and William Chapman BEST ATHLETES Dorothy Roane and Burley Andrews LARGEST Mary Scarborough and Robert Lindsey SHORTEST Alice White and Raymond Savage SENIOR SUPERLATIVES BEST COUPLE Mildred Jordan and Henderson Rowley KINDEST Essie Hunt and Robert Lindsey BEST STUDENTS Margaret Johnson and Paul Sample BEST SPEAKERS Maxine Smith and Paul Sample BEST PERSONALITY Lydia Spady and Clarence Walker MOST POPULAR Dorothy Roane and Henderson Rowley MOST SERIOUS Doris Upshur and Wardell Nottingham CALMEST Marva Ashby and Allen BaHer BEST LOOKING Lydia Spady and Paul Sample LAZIEST Carrie Gunter and Melvin Fox NOISIEST Gloria Wilson and Charles Hallett FIGURE PHYSIQUE Ruth Spady and Henderson Rowley ANNUAL STAFF STANDING, Left to Right: Paul Sample, Editor-in-Chief; Dorothy Roane, Frank Holland, Jr. , John Mor¬ ris, Lydia Spady, Calvin Roane, Juanita Marshall, Freddie Giddens, Margaret Johnson, Marva Ashby and Donald George.

CLASS POEM IT’S TIME TO LEAVE Northampton High we hate to leave. But this is a must we all believe. Although we may go far away, We ' ll be thinking of you from day to day. II We have learned as the days have passed; We have crossed one bridge of success. It is hard for each of us to express The things we’ve accomplished and our happiness. III The past years will be long remembered; They were lovely as we started in September. We have dreamed that this day would come, And now our delightful chore is done. IV Of many helpful things we have a clearer view, But our days at Northampton are almost through. So long Northampton High we say to you. Good-bye, Northampton High, Good-bye.
