O ' Presents the keys to NINTH EDITION 1955-56 Through the years we have always come to you with our trouble s and heartaches and now that we are Seniors, we wish to dedicate our annual to you in thanks for the endless hours you Many times we have strayed from the right path, but you were ever there with ahelping hand Now that we stand here on the threshold of a new life, we pause for a moment to try to tell you just how much you have meant to us in the past and how much you will mean to our future success. You have truly been our guiding light J. - 4 U, -U - V , THE TREE OF LIFE We, the Class of 56, were planted in the elementary as a seed is planted for growth. Our growth has taken twelve years of work, play, sadness and happiness. As the tree of Life withers at times so did we; but when the closeness of one another glowed. We climbed still higher to greater goals. The child, as a tree, needs love and care; For these we give praise, gratitude to our parents and teachers. Without their love and guidance we would have lost our way upon the path we follow. We started our years of High School, we wondered what the future held; Now as they are concluding: We stretch forth our arms, as a tree when grown; We ask our Father in Heaven to guide us to follow our motto, " Onward and Upward though the road may be rough. " --Jean Halbrook ALMA MATER In the hearts of Stokesdale students Flames a love of old, Thou art ever growing dearer, For the blue and gold. May thine honor, name, and glory, Stand the test of time, Trusting ever; doubting never, That thou art sublime. CHORUS Hail to thee, our ALMA MATER, Let us pledge anew, (Boys) Let us pledge anew, Faithful, loyal, willing service, Stokesdale High to you. n Mr. Joyce Mrs. Richardson Mrs. Hamid Mr. Wilson PRINCIPAL Mrs. Southard Mrs. Maggie Richardson 12th Grade Miss Marie Essa 11th Grade Mr. Jesse B.

Our memory of our first day in school is somewhat hazy, but it brightens as we advance step-by-step up the ladder of education to our eighth grade graduation. We shall know again in the near future the elated feeling we shared the night we received our eighth grade diplomas. We gained two new members in the fourth and fifth grades, Jean Halbrook and Larry Friddle respectively. As we entered the doors of high school with great am¬ bitions and high hopes, we thought we were really grown up because we couldchange classes like the rest of the students. Mr. Brewer guided us through our first year of high school. Then we became sophomores with Mrs. Southard as our home room teacher, and we really settled down to work. Our Junior year was very important to us. It meant that we would get to attend the Junior-Senior Banquet which we all looked forward to. Also during our junior year we re- ceivedour class rings which was a highlight in our life. We sold greeting cards and Christmas candy to earn money for our banquet. Another great experience in our Junior year was our trip to Washington and the long climb up the Wash¬ in gton Monument. Bernell Pope didn ' t come back this year and Haddie Sue White didn ' t return the next year. We struggled up the ladder until finally we became dig¬ nified seniors. Our senior year has been one of hard work and some play with Mr s. R i c h a r d s o n as our home room teacher. We are looking forward to giving the Senior Play and hope for a successful performance. During this year many of us have become experienced salesmen by selling merchandise trying to build up our class treasury. We are now growing closer to the top of our ladder, and in the coming years, we will look back over our many thrilling experiences and appreciate the thing s and people that have helped us to reach this great achievement for which so long we have labored. Patricia Clark Leon Murphy CLASS PROPHECY When the class elected me to write the prophecy I thought to my¬ self, why classmates I can ' t ever think. I har dly know what ' s going on in this busy world today, much less know what ' s going to happen in the future. With this in mind I got busy and observed my classmates, and this is the way I see them today: There ' s no variety in furniture in Bonnie Robertson ' s home-just rocking chairs. She has been rocking for years just waiting for the plummer to return. For Roger no one knows much about-he talked so slowly that he married before he knew what was going on. We were surprised as well as he. Eldridge Tysor is still in school-studying English. It loves him so! Roy Payne b o u g h t some dummies to be his girl friends so they couldn ' t complain about his osculatory inadequacy. Phyllis Jones and Howard Perdue talked so little that their tongues went on a strike for longer working hours. Wallace Wilson, unlike Lot ' s wife who turned into salt, kept getting sweeter and sweeter until he was nothing but sugar. Joy Ann Pegram, Cenobia Lawrence and Jeanne Halbrook live in the office but it is not the principal they like; it is the salesmen that appeal to them. Larry Friddle and P. D. Swain have put on so much mileage South - westard from Stokesdale that they have built a tunnel of love as a short cut. Needless to say they don ' t use it on the way home-because the longest way around is the sweetest way back. We might suggest a cheaper way. It was always hard to get David Middleton to move once he sat down. He sat down up at " His Little Margie ' s " and is still there. Or landa Pope always had so much on her mind that it was hard for her to remember anything-but her dates. Leon Murphy walked around with his head in the air, because there was so much in it. He stumped his toe one day in the hall--now he watches where he ' s going, and we think he ' s going somewhere too. Raymond Pegram and Jean Holland held their temper as long as they could, then they exploded-now they are in 99 different parts. During one of Myrtle Matthews glorious blushes her head burst into flames. With no eyes to see, ears for to hear, or mouth for to talk, life just won ' t be worth living so she expired. Roger Pegram almost worried our typing teacher to death. Now he ' s decided to behave himself in class. Pat Clark almost lost her voice cheering on the cheerleader squad. Now she walks around groaning, " Let ' s go, Blue Devils! " Evelyn Cook wrote so many airmail letters it almost broke her up, so she decided to just go herself. Now she ' s in Mississippi; or I might say with that guy in uniform. Sarah Middleton was always crazy about uniforms. But she was too particular about what was in them. Now she has decided to join the Lonely Hearts Club. Barbara Vernon walks around in a daze--too much of that Rocking¬ ham County community. Watch out fora new home on highway 158East. Barbara Vernon LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT For twelve years we have dug for a hidden treasure at Stokesdale High School. Going from room to room with guiding instructors there have been some discouraging moments in searching for this treasure but we somehow let our enjoyable memories overcome our discouragements. Having in a measure accomplished our goal we feel we have acquir¬ ed sufficient wealth to leave some of our treasures to our underclass • men and teachers. So on this, the twenty ninth day of May, one thousand nine hundred and fifty six, we the senior class of 1956, consisting of twenty-four unselfish members, now draw up a last will and testament: To Mr. Wilson: We leave all our written excuses for being out of class. To Mrs. Richardson: We leave all our bad habits and next years seniors. To Miss Essa: We leave the banged up and broken typewriters. To Mr. Southard: We leave our many thanks for the help in stuff¬ ing our heads with mathematics and Geometry. To Mr. Joyce: Our best wishes in t r a i ni ng h i s ball clubs since losing so many senior players. To Mrs. Hamid: Our appreciation for helping our boys to learn to get along with girls. To our grammar grade teachers. Many thanks for pulling us through the grades. To the Junior Class: We leave our seats in chapeland our cherish¬ ed moments in seeking our treasure. Joy Ann Pegram leave s her ambitious ways and will power to the rising Juniors. To whoever you think should have it, Jean Ha 1 b r o o k leaves her position as Miss Stokesdale. Roger Wilson wills his ability to work algebra to Carey Fulp. Wallace Wilson wills his high temper to Lester Shelton. To Wiley Pegram, Roy Payne leaves all his Greensboro girl friends. Roger Pegram leaves his ability to get along with Northern girls to Fred Self. To David Malloy, P. D. Swain leaves his height and ability to play basketball. To the teachers, Larry Friddle leaves his smart remarks. To Priscilla Vernon, Cenobia Lawrence leaves her engagement ring. Eldridge Tysor wills his Hot Rod to Arnold Payne. Myrtle Matthews leaves her long blonde hair to Margie Sherron. To Jean Pearman, Orlanda Pope wills her popularity. Bonnie Robertson leaves her good Sportsmanship trophy to Bennie Pope. Barbara Vernon leaves her ability to talk to anyone who thinks they can manage it. To Gail Hudson, Evelyn Cook leaves her chewing gum. Sarah Middleton wills her abilityto play basketball to VickeyFriddle. Howard Perdue wills his quietness to Lang don Ammen. Phyllis Jones leaves some of her height to Rachel Rierson. David Middleton wills his good looks to Jack Williams. LeonMurphy wills part of his knowledge, keeping enough, ox course, for his own security, to Buddy Pegram. Patricia Clark wills her position as chief cheerleader to JoAnne Holland. Raymond Pegram leaves his ability to succeed in Geometry Class to Judy Wilson.
