CLASS HISTORY One bright and sunny morning in the fall of 1940, thirty-two children trooped into the classroom. lt makes us dignified seniors blush to think of the tears that were shed that day. To many of us this' was our first venture alone into the daring world. Under the guidance of Mrs. J. D. Whisnett we soon felt more at ease. We gained self confidence through the years under our patient teachers, second grade, Mrs. Phyllis Matheson, third grade, Mrs. Nesbitt, fourth grade, Miss Ruth Miller, fifth grade, Mrs. Bryant Matlock, sixth grade, Mrs. Leach Gooden. We now found ourselves in the seventh grade, we were really leaming a lot. Quite a few of us made the Jr. Basketball team. Mrs. White was our teacher. The eighth grade, iust one step from high school. Miss Rachel Alexander, did a grand iob of preparing us for high school. Our class play was "Red and the Christmas Whoppers. " Upon entering high school there were eighteen of us. Some of our classmates had fallen behind ,moved , or dropped out. We were all freshmen or--no explanation needed. Mr. Robert Hill was our homeroom teacher and did his best to keep us in hand. Our class play was "Mrs. Whig's Political Party." The tenth grade held excitement for all of us, but without Mrs. Lynn Bames we would have forgotten to put all typing books in place and to cnver our typewriters. Our class play under her direction was "Ring Up The Curtain." At last we were Juniors, Mr. Leroy Jarvis was our teacher. -We had the Junior-Senior Banquet and our class rings to look forward to. -We received our class rings on March 7, 1952. Were we thrilledl We gave our Junior-Senior Banquet, which ,wasa great success, on May 5, 1952. Our Junior play, "Mary Comes Home From College", under the direction of Mrs. D. D. Martin, was performed with great talent. We were Seniors, fourteen girls and one boy. We couldn't decide whether we were sad or happy. Happy, because we would soon be leaving the classes which we dreaded so much. Sad, because we would be parting with our classmates who had grown to be our best friends in gleeor in sorrow. Our Senior Sponsor, Mrs. William DeVaughan, was a very understanding and helpful teacher. We gave our Senior play "The Nutt Family" March 13 which offered us a great deal of pleasure both in practice and in presentation. Beside all of our pleasant memories we leave behind at Stony Point, we also leave curtains to the proiected activity room and hope they will be enjoyed by all. CLASS HISTORIAN Colleen Sharpe CLASS PROPHECY A "baker's dozen" - plus one! Where will they be and what will they be doing five- ten or fifty years from now -- an interesting spectulationl My thoughts carry me on and on into the land of vision and I see the wonderful futures of my classmates, each in the place fitted for them as by design. I see myself coming out of the governor's office where I am secretary to Govemor of North Carolina. I ran into a big husky man who is none other than Sidney Norton. He is now coach of the basketball team at State College. After chatting for awhile I had to buy groceries so I went into "MiIIer's Food Store." Can you imagine the former Polly Clary and her husband operating a food store? Polly and I renewed old acquaintances, then she invited me to a formal party at her home on 667 West Franklin Street m I"l0fl0l' of Miss Dorothy Matheson who is now modeling in New Yoda City. Arriving at the party exactly at 8:00 o'cIock, all of the guest are already present, which include the majority of my former classmates. Miss Colleen Sharpe is telling of her experiences as a X-Ray technician at the John Hopkin's Hospital, in Baltimore, Maryland . Mrs. Va ughn Rogers, the former, Miss Ma rion Mc Lain is assisting Mrs. Miller with serving the cocktails when I leam that she has graduated from Bowling Green Business College and is teaching at the R. J. ReynoId's High School in Winston- Salem, North Carolina. Misses Shirley Drum and Betty Anne DeJarnette, still old maids, are discussing plans for the opening of the "Drum and DeJamette's Department Store" in Greensboro, North Carolina. Then I begin talking to the lady beside me and I find that it is Mrs. Bob Harris, the former Miss Evelyn Watts, who is now teaching in the High Point Primary School in High Point, North Carolina. She tells me about seeing Misses Nan Miller and Betty Joe Crisp who are graduate nurses at the Thomasville Memorial Hospital. I also leam that Miss Cozette Herman is engaged to a well-known artist in Europe. She is planning the wedding for New Years' Eve at the St. MichaeI's Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Miss Catherine Adams, the well-known solosist, is to sing for the occasion . After bidding good-bye, I go to my hotel room and pick up the newspaper where I read about Miss Betty Sue Beckham arriving in Paris for a two weeks' tour. As the personalities of my classmates pass in review, I remember that we are known by what we are, since we are, since "the boy is father to the man .

To the school, we the Senior Class, will our high ideals, our love of beauty, our sense of loyalty and devotion to duty, which it has given to us through twelve ioyi- ous years, to be used in future years. To our teachers who have guided and helped us, we haveour deepest appreciation. I, Evelvn Watts, will my ex-boy friends to anyone who will be good to them. I, Cozette Herman, will my ability to not do my homework to anyone who wants to to risk it. I, Marion McLain, will my ability to foul out of ball games to Shirley Alexander. I, Loretta Mayberry, will my big loud mouth to Rushie Martin. I, Shirley Drum, will my excess pounds to Pat Rhyne. I, Betty Joe Crisp, will my curly hair to Emma Jean Minton. I, Sidney Norton, will my best ear plugs to Benny Kerley so he can sleep in the classroom - the cot in the "First-aid room" is too uncomtortable. I, Catherine Adams, will my baby talk to Luke Alexander. I, Betty Anne De.lamette, will my love of the Glee Club to Janis Henderson. I, Dorothy Matheson, will my innocent expression to Virginia Branton and Helen Windsor to bolster their alibi when they find it necessary to cut classes. I, Betty Sue Beckham, will my con'tentment and good humor to Marlene Steele. I, Colleen Sharpe, will my ability to fall out of an automobile without getting hurt to whoever rides when Dale Beaver is driving. I, Nan Miller, will my giggles to Mr. Fox. I, Polly Clary, will my dumb blondness to Wilma Yoder.
