We'll never forget staying in every other recess for talking in class and chewing gum. l'm not so sure that we act any different now since we're dignified seniors. 611155 The purpose of this history is not to relate every step in the progress of a people from their humble beginning but to emphasize those factors in our class development which appeal to us as most vital from the standpoint of today. The discovery of the Class of 1956 was an accident. Four years ago, early one morning on the first day of Septem- ber l952,the faculty of the Stewartsville High S c hool was strolling aimlessly through the class rooms chatting about their Work during the coming year. Sud- denly they caught a glimpse of some- thing new andstrange. Just inside the fr ont door, huddled together in mute embarrassment and anxiety were the 56 members of what became the Class of 1956. The strangers were divided into small groups and assigned to the care of Mr., Bernard Rollins and Mr. Jim Hartigan. They were given the name "Freshmen"and became a part of the high school life. At the end of the year aterr'ible disaster b e f e ll the Fresh- men. Although-it was instigated by the faculty and intended to prove of lasting benefit to them, they suffered greatly. Many had their growth retarded a year by it, and a few permanently disabled, left the Freshman Class forever. This disaster was c alled Final Examina- tions. With the coming of the next Septem- ber, we received a new name. Because of our skill in acquiring the customs of the school, we we re renamed Sopho- mores, and the process was called by a native name, "promotion". Instead of 35 intellectual gold m ind s they had h0Ped '10 See, they found vast, arid spaces, totally uninhabited. The tea- c h e r s pushed bravely on through the underbrush of ignorance hoping, before the time allotted for their explorations was over, to reach what would cornpen- sate for all their time and effortg a g e niu s . The social functions of the period we r e delight ful, the most im- portant being the School Social, Mr, Edward Nininger and Mr8.Lois Hensley were our homeroom sponsors. ln the third year, owing to an old educational c u s t om , w e became Z7 happy Juniors, and our promotion made our sense of importance increase out of all due proportion. The class organi- History zation of the Juniors wa s as follows: P r e s ide nt, Betty Simmons, Vice- President, Martha Arringtong Secre- t a r y , D e ann a Wagner, Treasurer, Shirley Chisom. The most important event this year was the planning of a banquet given in hon o r of the Senior Clas s . Our theme was "The Rose Festival",and it was given on Friday, May 13, 1955 at the Vinton War Me- morial, Our Junior Sponsor was Mr. Harry Arthur. The Class was success- ful in selling different articles for rais- ing money. And now, we come to the fourth and greatest ye-ar in the history of the class. We automatically las was our custom in many thingsj became 24 happy seniors in September of 1955. We welcomed our new principal, Mr. M. E. Given. We were looked upon with friendly a- musement by the teacher-explorers Who regarded the result of their four years of hard labor with rightful pride. They had converted a band of untamed Children into intelligent, courteous ci- tizens of Stewartsville High. The or- ganization of the Senior Class was note- worthy, the following li st of officers being in charge: President, Frederick Dearingg Vice-P r e s i den t , Dorothy St. Clair: Secretary, Betty Simmonsg Treasurer, Phyllis Roland. Our spon- sor, Mrs.Christine Huddleston, led us in all of our class activities. The most exciting and unforgettable event in our Senior Year was the receiving of our class rings. Our largest job, yet our most enjoyable, was the publishing of the Crossroads. We all looked forward to the basketball games and there was much regret among us when the doors were closed at the tournament. The month of June brought happiness, yet traces of sadness on our faces. Thanks, dear teachers, for guiding us down that road of life called "High School". I take the opportunity to say now that in my opinion the Class of 1956 is one of the most brilliant and attrac- tive classes known to history and we hope that it will always be remembered by the faculty of the Stewartsville High Sc ho ol as "That Wonderful Class of l956".

A nice picnic came off. Cflass Praphecy It is June 4,1976, and the audi- torium of Stewartsville High School is buzzing with excitement. The Senior Class of 1956 is being honored with a homecoming party. Many of the guests are arriving and as I gaze upon the faces of my old classmates I see the many changes which have taken place during the past years. T h e r e come those ever happy girls ,Peggy DeLong and Skippy Sears with their husbands following them. If someone mentions The Canada Dry Bottling Company, you can still see their eyes light up. D e ann a Wagner an d Martha McManaway are sitting over in a cor- ner talking about that "real cute boy" that Deanna is going with. Deanna is a Business Education teacher now, but she is still trying to get that 100 words a minute typing speed. Martha Raye is a gay, single girl who looks as young as ever. To whom do those little blonde headed girl s dressed in Navy uni- forms belong ? Oh, there's June Flowers with her s ail or Husband, they must be hers. That noise! It must be Shirley Wheeler in her 1976 Cadillac. That's just what she always wanted. Frederick Dearingjust walked in with his head high in the air. He is the CountyAgent of the Bedford 4-H Clubs. His hobby is raising cows. That tall girl with the beautiful clothes is Shirley Foutz. She is head designer for Miller and Rhodes. There's Alma Ferguson talking as fast as she can to Martha Maxey. Almais the author of a famous book, "Hints on How to Ke e p a Conver- sation Moving". Martha is a teacher of Home Economics and she has been writing some interestingarticles on "The Housewife and her Drud- geryn. Barbara Huffman is now a reg- istered nurse. If anyone eats too much, we will have a nurse for the emergency. Have you seen Lois Chaney and her handsome husband? He is here on leave from the Air Force. Joyce Truman recently became the editor of a magazine ca1led"Hints to the Secretary". What's all the fuss ? It's that p r i v at e secretary from New York, Phyllis Roland. She must be telling Joyce what she should have in her magazine. They say that "Experience is the best teacher". Here comes Harold Haldren and his wife and kids. Harold is the cap- tain ofthe World's Champion basket- ball team. Ona Bush and Carleen Pace are still watching for airplanes. They have jobs with the Civil Air Patrol. There 's the Coach of the Stewartsville gir1's basketball team, Clar a J ane Booth, and her latest heart throb. Iknowthere is going to be plen- ty of good food here tonight because I just saw Barbara Pat s el, Toot's Drive-In owne r , come in the back door with her arms loaded with bun- dles. Wonder who that girl is with the pretty slim figure? It's Dorothy St. Clair. Ihear that she has or- ganized a club called "T he Dieting Women". At lastl have come to my three best girl friends,Betty Lou Simmons, Joyce Robertson, and Norma Williams. Asl chat with them, I find that Betty Lou and her husband have bought their dream home. They have a six-room house with plenty of space for the kid s . Joyce Robertson and her husband have become the sole owners of the "Double Envelope". Norma spends most of the time wait- ing for her husband to come home. He is a fireman on the N 8: W Rail- road. As for me, I am working as a s e c r e ta ry and bookkeeper, still trying to write shorthand. The food has been served and as the guests begin to leave, I can see a bit of sadness in each eye as they remember the wonderful days spent at Stewartsville.

Chorus: Come and sing all nightg Come and sing all day, We'1l sing the praises of the dear old school, Whiling the bright hours away. We've learned the longest words to spell Sing hey, sing ho, And business education too: Sing high, sing low. With mathematics and isotherms Sing hey, sing ho, We're all on very familiar terms, Sing high, sing low. No more in Stewartsville we'll shine, Sing hey, sing ho, But soon we'll be alumni fine, Sing high, sing low. And even when we are far away, Sing hey, sing ho, We '1l tell her virtues till we're old and gray, Sing high, sing low. THE CLASS OF 1956 611155 Pam: Seniors, here we are at last, Twas a year that went by fast. Even though we'll miss you Stewartsville High, We 'll be back to visit by and by. A wonderful time we have had, Remembering our good moments with the bad. Time has come to bid our last farewell, Superior deeds and thoughts that come to dwell Vastly in our hearts, and there to stay, Isolated from the rest, put there day by day. Long will we remember those who take our place, Lots of joys and hardships they will have to face. Evermore loyal will we be, Alma Mater dear to thee Stewartsville High!
