" Our class entered high school in nine¬ teen and forty-six with sixty members. Our sponsors in the ninth grade were Mrs. Margaret Rowell and Mrs. Ivy Brown. In the Tenth, Mrs. Rowell and Mr. Joe Walden were our sponsors. This year they are Mrs. Rowell and Mrs. Ruth Carlisle. Five of our girls have married and left our class since last year. They are: Hazel Strickland, Gladys Gant, Marie Foster, Peggy Duncan and Wilma Mar¬ tin. We have contributed many boys and girls to the football and basketball teams this year We have contri- rnted cheerleaders and members of the " Cygnet ) staff also. Many of Ns - our class be¬ long to the Beta, F.F.A., and V S Club.

They rill have tried to inspire you ;hrough their teaching to make .ive not merely a living. Unless your training thus far ias given you principles which fill be companions to you as you Look upon the ugly things of life- is you view the deceits, the wrongs and the quarrelings--and ill the enthusiasm you now have vill wilt as does the bloom of the " lowers, and the place in your ieart where your dreams now rest vill be crowded out. Class of 10B-1, I challenge J ou to adopt a good companion. ?ruth is a good companion. Truth lever dies. The ages come and go. fountains wear away. Empires crumble into dust. Truth may be lidden under the debris for a- vhile but it never dies. Seek cut the truth within yourselves; 3eek out the truth in life, lold steadfastly to it. It will oe an anchor for your faith. Always remember as you go forth from these year of learning, that as you view the building of industry; as you travel on the nighways; as you delve into the nystery of the years ahead of you; in all the ages, in all the years, nothing has been accomplished without work, without vision, without dreams.

To ' be¬ come ’ ' Freshmen” was a grand experience for us. V.e are looking for a few of us to wind up in Congress and especially for Billy Bridges to become President. Our class has a number of fine athletes of whose records we are proud. V.e had five boys on the football team and three of the same boys made the basketball team, and one was a Cheer¬ leader. We think cur class has plenty of ability and will go far, and we hope that our athletes will weave a banner of fame and glory for themselves and our school in the future. Our Class Officers are; Jimmy Webb, President: Jin Huntsinger, Vice-President; 3etty Pinkerton, Secretary; Faye Bartlett, Treasurer. Class Colors are: Black and Gold. Class Motto: " To do our best at all times everywhere.” Our class also has a lot of singing ability. vie have a regular quartet and we enjoy their singing very much. So all in all we have a very outstanding class. The Good Citizens of the Ninth grade are Jimmy Webb and Peggy Moser. The Twelfth grade girls defeated our Ninth grade girls by a one point margin in the annual F.H.A,. tournament. The final score was 15 to lip. High scorer for the Twelfth grade was Fvelyn Roberts, while Pat Stevens tallied 6 for the losers. Those claying for the 93-1 class vrere Thelma Mayfield, Betty Lou Slagle, and Doris Hall.

The teachers took one look at us and quickly divided us into two sections, ours be¬ coming 9B-2. Our first few days were filled with wonder¬ ing and wandering as we tried to accustom to the routine of changing classes, new studies, and mingling with friends during the day. But in no time we were feeling like old timers and were successfully adding our bit to school life. Some of our 93-2 students who have made a name for themselves in school activities are; Bill Allen, who earned his football letter; Hilliard Owen; and James Rice. James Johnson and Bill Allen represented the class in basketball, while Harry Padgett served as manager for the team. Pat Stevens, Maxine Gardner, Joyce Q,ueen, and Elaine Fox made the girl’s U B " team in basketball. Our best spellers were Jewell Cooke, Peggy Rayburn and Pat Stevens, with Pat winning the honor of helping represent Swannanoa High School in the contest at Blanton’s Business College. Twenty of our boys belong to the Future Farmer of America while eleven girls are members of the Future Homemakers of America. With our varied interests placing us in many school activities, we feel that it has been a year well spent and that in our way we have contributed much to school life. At the same time, our benefits have been many. For as we have participated in school life, we have learned our own capabilities as well as what is expected of us. Thus we close this first experience looking forward eagerly to our next three years as worhty members of our school community. Class Superlatives Best looking.............

In addition to these we have the local papers and a large number of popular magazines. This year the Library received several hundred new books. The Library Science classes under the direction of the Librarian, Mrs. Margaret K. Rowell, processed and classified these and made them ready for circulation. Some of the most important things the Library Science classes have done this year were: made an entirely new file of catologue cards; prepared a new accession book for the High School and a complete set of shelf list cards for the Elementary School Library. Another task we all like to do is to plan and put up new bulletin boards and displays to correspond with the seasons and events of the year. Each student has a special task to perform; such as reading the shelves, checking books in and out, tabulating the daily circulation, and keeping the magazines and newspapers in order. The following are taking this subject: Irene Adams, Clara Allen, Patsy Bailey, Anne Burnette, Bruce DeBruhl, Billie Fender, 3111 Goanell, Thomas Huntsinger, Ruth Meeks, Betty Sizemore, Jack Smith, Margaret Stephenson, Virginia Tweed, Frances Vv ' adell, and Theo Weaver. Mr. Howell and Office Helpers Miss Baker and Senior Typing Class I In nature and the textbooks our budding " scientists " have delved into the various scientific fields to find themselves involved. In chemistry, the mystery of the atom and molecule unfurled and even HC1 made sense to a few. Gasoline motors were inspected at the garage by the General Science people and even the sad buses got a going over by the inquiring class!

Rowell The national Beta Club is a non-secret achievement service. It was organized for high school students and one of its ob¬ jects is to encourage and assist students to continue their education after high school. The qualifications for membership are: good mentality and character, creditable achievement and commendable attitude. Our local chapter has sponsored a clean-up campaign through out the school which has helped the conditions of the school. The Beta Club presented a one-act play before the student body November 11 , 19)4.8. This is an annual Armistice Day custom. Elmer Fender, Pearl Ramsey, Betty Ingle and Evelyn Roberts are the remaining charter members still in school. The club was instituted in the year of 19 4-7 with twenty-three members. The following students are members of the club: Irene Adams Clara Allen Betty Brigman Anne Burnette Raymond Clarke Billie Fender Elmer Fender Oberia Fox Betty Ingle Geraldine Jenkins Ruth Meeks Billy Mills Pearl Ramsey Esther Reed Evelyn Roberts Patsy Stroupe Nadine Allen Betty Bastarache Irene Kilby Bruce DeBruhl Nadine Deweese Carl Hall Barbara Jones David Miller Betty Stroupe Martha Pen ley Arnold Teems Thelma Trantham Marilyn Ward ■: S CLUB Front row- T.

FUTURE HOMEMAKERS OF- AMERICA SWANNANOA CHAPTER " TOWARD NEW HORIZONS” President: Nadine Allen Vice-Pres.: Thelma Mayfield Secretary: Joan Bass Treasurer: Anne Garland Reporter: Betty Stroupe Historian: Margaret Stevenson Song Leader: Virginia Tweed Parliamentarian: Betty B igman Adviser: Mrs. Ruth Carlisle Wives and mothers of tomorrow must be more than good cooks and sock darners; they must also be good neighbors. This was the conclusion reached a few years ago, and it lead to the coast- to-coast growth of the Future Homemakers of America, an organization of some 150,000 teen age girls. We have State, National, and Local advisers, but the organization is actually operated by the girls themselves, who hold the State, National, and Local officers. The members are all high-school students, interested in Horae Economics, but the clubs do not teach house¬ hold skills. Instead, they work out projects. A family in their town needs help, so the girls take on jobs as baby¬ sitters, house-cleane rs, and errand-runners to help the family. The Swannanoa Chapter has two projects for the year: planting of red roses on the school grounds, and the adoption of a Foreign Home Economics Class. We are sending boxes of needed material to the girls, and also writing letters and exchanging ideas. Three of our members have passed the test, winning their Chapter Homemaking degrees. They are Nadine Allen, our Pres¬ ident; Martha Penley; and Betty Stroupe. Anne Garland has passed the test for Junior Homemaking. These girls are now working on their State Homemaking degrees. Valentine was a great success, celebrated in the Buckner Building. Both boys and girls pronounced it a fine part-y. We were represented at the district Ralley in Hendersonville by Geraldine Jenkins, Margaret Stevenson, and Elaine Fox. Delegates to our State Convention in Raleigh were: Nadine Allen, Martha Penley, and Pat Stevens. Pat modeled a dress that she had made in first year Homemaking, and Martha was selected to be the commentator for the Fashion Show. We are planning more activities for the summer so that we won ' t lose contact during that time. F. H. A.
