: . ' v . • • ... ■ ill III 111 IBiHlifflSll Page Three Preface We undertook the publication of this volume with misgivings, because, numerically, we were only eleven, and, financially, we were doubtful of our ability to make terms with 1920 prices. We found, however, that eleven are as good as a legion if they work together with a spirit of good fellowship and cooperation. It has been our aim, in making this record, to picture as truthfully and vividly as might be our school life as we have found it. We have made no effort to camouflage any part of it. The life, on the whole, we have found good. The record, we are well aware, has faults and failures. In spite of these, we submit it to our readers in the hope that, turning its pages in friendly spirit, they may find something to interest and amuse them. We wish to express our appreciation of the aid given us in our undertaking by our advisory editors, Miss Mill- saps and Miss Shuford, and by the business men of Tar- boro, who have supported us so enthusiastically. ° ft r e Ai tj Editorial Staff 8 Faculty 9 Senior Class Organization 10 Glass Song 17 Senior History 18 Senior Prophecy 21 Last Will and Testament 24 Senior Superlatives 27 Senior Sensus 29 Poem 30 Junior Class 34 Sophomore Class 37 Freshman Class 40 Wilkinson Literary Society 46 Kipling Literary Society 47 Athletic Associations 50 Yells of Tarboro High 52 Basketball Team 54 Carnival Freaks 55 Glee Club 56 Fun and Rhyme 60 Junior-Senior Reception 62 TO MISS MARGUERITE THOMPSON WHOSE CHARMING PERSONALITY FIRST LIGHTENED OUR WAY IN THE WORLD OF LETTERS, WE DEDICATE THIS, THE RECORD OF OUR LIFE IN HIGH SCHOOL Editorial Board James Baker . . .

Annie is as calm and placid as the night. She seldom speaks, but is a good listener. She must have some very interesting thoughts locked up behind her calm exterior. Some day we hope she will give us a key to them. " Give thy thoughts no tongue. " JAMES ALPHONSO BAKER Editor-in-chief Tar-bo-rah ' 19- " 20, Athletic Association T9- ' 20, Kipling Literary Society T9- ' 20, Secretary of Class ' 18-19, Baseball T8-T9. Age, 16; Height, 5 ' 5 " ; Weight, 120. James is our only member who holds the position of a Baker, but we have reason to believe that he is going to put his hard-earned cl " ebraic knowledge into action and, raising his name to the " n " th power, become a full- f.edged banker. We believe that James was cut out for the big things in life, and we know that, if he handles his life ' s work as well as he handled the job of Editor-in-chief for our Annual, he will indeed be highly successful. " if I will I will, and you may depend ont; Ij I won ' t I won ' t, and there ' s the end on ' t. " Page Twelve BERTHA MING GODWIN Literary Society ' 19- ' 20, Basketry Club ' 19- ' 20. Age, 18; Height, 5 ' 1 " ; Weight, 95. Bertha is one of the best-hearted members of our class. She is a good student, too, for she nevsr idles in her study periods and is very attentive and studious. She talks little, rarely ever expressing her opinion. Judging from her persistency and love of music, we expect great things in years to come. " Well tuned silence is more eloquent than speech. " HAZEL BRITTON HOARD Class Historian ' 19- ' 20, Secretary Basketry Club ' 19- ' 20, Girls ' Athletic Association ' 19- ' 20, Kipling Literary Society, Advertising Editor Tar-bo-rah ' 19- " 20. Age, 17; Height, 5 ' 6 " ; Weight, 110. Hazel Hoard has a very appropriate name, for we can say that she Hoards a great part of the knowledge of our class. She is the sum total of all that is dignified. She always looks as though she had just stepped out of a band- box. Her promptness is another trait, for she is there on time and with the goods. " Charm strikes the eye, and merit wins the soul? ' Page Thirteen MARY HESTER LEWIS Captain Basketry Club " 19- ' 20, Dramatics ' 19- ' 20, Athletic Association ' 19- ' 20. Age, 17; Height, 5 ' 4 " ; Weight, 115. Jimmie ' s motto in life is, " Keep moving, make it snappy. " Her energy expends itself in frantic talking and gesticulations, unless an essay is to be written, or a carnival to be pulled off. At such times she ' s indispensable to the class. At all times she ' s a good stu- dent and a jolly classmate. For the rest, Jimmie must have perseverance. In spite of months of defeat, she still daily and militantly attempts the feat of keeping her feet in the aisle where Walter stores his feet. " Then she would talk — ye gods, how she would talk! " JAMES MAYNARD KEECH Business Manager of Tar-bo-rah, Treasurer Class T8- ' 19, Treasurer Class ' 19- ' 20, Secre- tary-Treasurer Boys ' Athletic Association, Treasurer Senior Savings Society T9- ' 20, Vice- President Wilkinson Literary Society ' 19- " 20, Basketball Team. Age, 17; Height, 5 ' 7 " ; Weight, 130. The care-free Class of 1920 is lucky to have one sane and practical member to bear the burdens of Business Manager. Maynard ' s talents lie in many directions; he can play basketball, write poetry, and is a second Ver- non Castle in dancing. A good student, a boy of fine intelligence, he has made a success of every activity which he has undertaken. For further information about his abilities, go to Maynard himself. " The best of me is diligence. " Page Fourteen ROSA MOYE MERCER Literary Society 19- ' 20, Basketry Club ' 19- " 20, Treasurer Girls ' Athletic Association ' 19- ' 20, Class Secretary T9- ' 20, Assistant Editor Annual T9- ' 20, Secretary Senior Savings So- ciety ' 19- ' 20. Age, 16; Height, 5 ' 3% " ; Weight, 110. Although the youngest in the class, Rosa can be very dignified when she wants to. The high cost of rouge never troubles her, for she always has blushes handy. These same blushes furnish a great deal of fun for the class and, if it wasn ' t for Rosa Moye ' s good disposilion, simple jokes might have disastrous endings. In the opinion of at least one member of our class, Rosa has very taking ways. I suppose because she takes kodak pictures every recess — and takes so long to get to school in the morning. " A dillar, a dollar, A ten o ' clock scholar, What makes you come so soon? " MARGARET QUINCY MITCHELL Treasurer Basketry Club T9- ' 20, Critic Wil- kinson Literary Society " 19- ' 20. Age, 17; Height, 5 ' 7 " ; Weight, 124. Let me commend to you Margaret ' s blue eyes ;. they ' ve helped us convince the merchants that it pays to advertise. She gives her phrases many a curious quirk — but she really needn ' t speak at all — let her dimples do the work. Dear me, if it had not been for Margaret ' s coy glances, in saddest state would be the Tar-bo- hah ' s finances. " Good humor only teaches charms to last, Still makes new conquests and maintains the past. " Page Fifteen HELEN PORTER POWELL President Literary Society T9- " 20, Vice-Cap- tain Basketry Club T9- ' 20, Athletic Associa- tion ' 19- ' 20, Class Prophet T9- " 20. Age, 17; Height, 5 ' 2 " ; Weight, 113. Helen is one of the best all-round girls you will find, and one blessed with many good traits. She has red hair, but evidently keeps the corresponding disposition well under con- trol, for she seldom gives way to it. Good- natured, but dignified, she is popular with those who know her, and will make many friends when she goes out in the world. " Nothing endures but personal qualities. ' " MARY COLLINS POWELL President Class T9- ' 20, President Athletic Association ' 19- " 20, President Senior Savings Society T9- , 20, Secretary-Treasurer Wilkinson Literary Society T9- ' 20, Captain Girls ' Basket- ball Team, Dramatics ' 19- ' 20. Age, 16; Height, 5 ' 7 " ; Weight, 124. Mary s ideal is not lower than the highest round of the ladder. Everybody admires her excellent scholarship, her dexterity on the athletic field, her dramatic talent, and her fas- cinating girlish manner. She can " manage " any situation, and we consider her an all- round prize. " Daughter of the gods, divinely tall. " Page Sixteen WALTER LEE SIMMONS Vice-President Class ' 20, Vice-President Kip- ling Literary Society ' 19- ' 20, Cartoonist, Ath- letic Association ' 19- ' 20, Composer of Song. Age, 16; Height, 5 ' 8 " ; Weight, 129. The whole class was dismayed when, in the midst of their work on the Annual, they heard that Walter was ill. They depended on him, not only to draw cartoons, reel off free verse, typewrite copy — but to divert the mind of an irate teacher when somebody failed to write an English theme. Luckily, in the nick of time, three days be- fore the Tar-bo-rah went to press, he came back with an affluence (short for after-flu- ence) of energy, high spirits, and new ideas. " There is a bit of deviltry behind this mild exterior. " Class Song W e ve finished now our home-school days, And soon apart will roam; But we ' ll live them o ' er in a thousand ways In the days which are to come. CHORUS So, Farewell to the privileges enjoyed by us all; Good-bye, old T. H. S. — we leave you in the fall. No matter how the storms may cast Us on the rocks of toil, We ' ll hold the motto of ' 20 fast, And never let it spoil. Page Seventeen Voyage of the Goodship 1920 Voyage I In the month of September, in the year of our Lord 1916, the Goodship 1920, with a young, inexperienced crew of boys and girls, set sail from the port of Grammar School upon the mysterious and untried High School Sea, in search of knowledge. No sooner had they embarked than a mighty wind arose, driving all the boys to the upper deck and the girls to the lower. Neither dared to try to reach the other for fear of being washed overboard by the high waves. This caused a heavy cloud of sorrow to hang over the Goodship, as interesting plans had been made for wonderful times together during this voyage. In a short time, however, land was sighted, and when the ship drew nearer it was seen to be a group of islands. The Goodship 1920 anchored here for a while. All eagerly rushed ashore and set out to explore the islands. One was found to be inhabited by saw-and-seens, shall-and-wills, and all kinds of themes; on another the inhabitants were forever hunting for X ' s, Y ' s, and Z ' s; on another all were engaged in recalling and recording the deeds and events of the past and present, and endeavor- ing to interpret them in such a way as to prophesy what the future would be; on still another, skulls, teeth, tarsals, phalanges, ribs, and vertebrae were lying everywhere. Some of the crew enjoyed these explorations so much that they would have liked to continue them; but the majority felt so tired and worn that it seemed best to return. So they bade the governor of the islands good-bye and set sail for the homelands. Thus endeth the first voyage. Voyage II After a short rest, the crew set sail to revisit the islands. The captain in charge was a cruel and austere man even to the point of commanding all on board to be silent. This state of affairs naturally made the crew homesick and fearful; a condi- tion which was intensified, only a few days out, by the heavy sounds of distant rumb- ling, a continued and deadening roar, and an occasional flare of the heavens as if there were a great and terrible storm in the distance. The islands were, however, reached without meeting any terrible mishap and everyone heaved a great sigh of relief. But not for long; they presently learned that all the terror was due to a great war which had broken out, and two of the chiefs would have to go, while all that stayed behind would have to help the best they could to keep them " over there. " A great ship came and took them away. Two other chiefs came to take their places, but there was little joy anywhere. Great bombs of coherence, unity, and emphasis dropped at any time without a warning. The periscope of photosynthetic or osmotic submarines appeared at any hour of the day, and observation balloons were continu- ally dropping threatening material in foreign languages that kept them terrified until they were panicky. One awful bomb struck a beloved English governess, and she had to be rushed to one of the little beds that were kept for any casualty. Page Eighteen So many terrible things happened that the crew got little pleasure from the investigations that they came to make. A conference was called and quickly decided to abandon the expedition at once. So the Goodship 1920 started home six wesks early, with a crew somewhat uncertain as to whether they should feign sadness or actually proclaim the gladness which was within them. Thus endeth the second voyage. Voyage III In September, the crew being older and somewhat accustomed to terrors and hardships, decided to return again to work on the task previously started. Each island had a new chief, all of whom had taken rigid training together. Each took special pains to interest the young investigators. Everything was moving along nicely, when suddenly a great and blasting wind of influenza arose, leaving dead, sick and dying in its wake. So mighty and terrible was its effect that all activities ceased for five weeks. At the end of this time the wind subsided, the sun shone brightly, and all resumed work, with thankful hearts. Then came weeks and months of successful work. Many of the crew became almost experts in their line, and they learned that there is real joy in work well done. In the midst of their busy life there came a message saying that the Armenians were starving. The crew put their heads together and planned a great carnival, to which all the inhabitants of the islands were invited. Their novel way of advertising the delectable things which would be sold by tempting the chiefs for a whole week in advance with delicious hot chocolate, sandwiches, and candies proved to be a howling success. All the natives came to the carnival to see the Wild Man from Borneo, the Gypsy Queen, the Ground Hog, the Baby Show, and other strange and interesting things. It is said that to this day they talk of the wonderful sights seen that night, and the record has gone down in the Armenian history of her graitude to the crew of the Goodship 1920 for their aid. Near the end of the year a little sailboat named 1919 drifted by with only two passengers on board. The Goodship 1920 hailed them and, so glad were they to see the visitors, that they had a great celebration in their honor. Soon the crews gathered all their records and paraphernalia and set out homeward bound. Thus endeth the third voyage. Voyage IV For the fourth and last time this noble crew sailed forth to the little islands which they had grown to love so well. Their interest and enthusiasm was greater than ever before, for they expected to complete their collection of knowledge so that they, on their next journey, might sail to that wonderful land called College. Imagine their dismay when they found that their camping place had been torn away and they were forced to camp out in a great hollow place, surrounded by high embankments from which came echoes, some like unto sweet music, others like unto noise. Tramps often strolled by and meddled with their belongings. All this made them unhappy. Such bitter complaint was sent to the governor that he finally allotted to them a secluded Page Nineteen nook in the most elevated portion of the island. Dwelling here in high places, they found their ambition soaring. They even dared, in spite of the appallingly high cost of parchment and th e warnings of the wiseacres, to try the compiling of a log of all their voyages. The little cell in which they lived became by turns a photograph gallery, edi- torial office, and advertisement bureau. For the first time, the crew of the Goodship 1920 saw that there was a reason for all the explorations they had made on the Isles of Knowledge. Every discovery proved of use in the new endeavor. Lucky they had learned the lyrics, for now they must sing them for " Fun and Rhyme. " Good they knew how to construct geometrical figures, for now they could square expenses with assets, and look confidently at every angle of the task. There were days when enthu- siasm ran high and all went smoothly in their workshop. There were days when gloom well-nigh overwhelmed them — when their art of expression seemed to be a.w.o.l., and their financial difficulties assumed stupendous proportions. But they carried on — you may judge for yourself how successfully. (See Maynard Keech, Business Manager of The Tar-bo-rah, for subscription price.) They did cease their labors occasionally, however, for a little recreation. Once they went to Coolmore, the cave of the witches and ghosts, and had the spookiest time of their lives. Then the great carnival was repeated and they are still following the manner of the famous Hawaiian dancer who made such a hit among them. But the happiest of all was when the beautiful Ship of 1921 came and brought them such deli- cious things to eat, and gave them most enchanting performance for their enjoyment. At present they are gathering up all their belongings and preparing to say their last farewell to the beloved islands, to set out for home. Already they have made some wonderful plans for taking several long and important voyages in the future. Thus endeth the fourth and last voyage. Hazel Hoard. Page Twenty Senior Prophecy May 1, 1928.

A ship of green, ivith pure white sails, Resisting ivaves and treacherous gales. Officers and crew to the number of eleven, With feet upon earth and eyes upon Heaven. The aim of this daring, bold crew, I confess, Was full knowledge of life to possess. F or eleven long years they had striven in vain, Through storms of contempt and showers of rain. ' Twas not easy to sail these stormy seas, So carefully mined and seldom at ease. And then, o ' er the horizon, the land ivas in sight For ivhich they had striven with all of their might. A shout of joy, the thrill of success, At the long and happy recess! But, alas! with a crash and a terrible sound, ' Mid screaming and shrieking, the ship went down! Ah! but ' twas a sad and pitiable sight, The ivay they struggled through this plight. Some in the Sea of Matrimony were lost, Others on the shore of Business were tossed. In spite of the sprains and violent knocks, Each Senior survived hig h up on the rocks. Though many have come and many have flown, The voyage of ' 20 will forever be known. Maynard Keech.

Some of the company were filled with a spirit of adventure and enthusiasm; others were somewhat fearful of the hardships to be encountered, and a few totally indifferent; but, taking them all together, they were a jolly, interesting bunch. Needless to say, they had many Battles to win, but all proved themselves loyal to their Cos-by paying the Price, whatever that happened to be. Much exposure to the weather often chilled their bones to the Marrow and their faces were Brown and weather-beaten; but it would have taken Moore than this to discourage these trav- elers. Their first guide, Brogden, was a good scout, and often suggested that they turn aside from the main thoroughfare to rest and hunt for Cranes along the little streams. At other times, when all were weary and footstore, the ready wit and the twink- ling eye of a Scotch lad, McNair, and the incessant chatter of a bright Scotch lassie, McLauchlin, kept them all from feeling Wors-(ley) than they otherwise would. It was their good fortune to have a sort of acA of-all-trades, who succeeded in getting them through all the unexpected difficulties, and a smart Alex who could supply either wit or money, as the case demanded. After a time they came to a long, long bridge called Summer Vacation. There they told the old guide good-bye, and when they crossed over they found another guide who agreed to go with them on their journey. They traveled long and far, and one evening when tired and weary some one suggested that they all stop and camp by the roadside for the night. All agreed, and soon everyone was busy making camp. The boys found some nice dry sticks and said to one of them, " Go-r(h)am these in the fire and make it burn. " The girls prepared a good supper, and after all had eaten heart- ily, everyone sat clown around the camp-fire and there, with the Light shining on their happy faces, they told stories and sang songs until every one fell asleep — and they are still asleep with half the journey unmade.

The Boy ' s Basketball Team The Tarboro High School Baketball Team was very successful this season, win- ning four games and losing two. The first game of the season was played with Rocky Mount, with a great majority of points in favor of Rocky Mount. The game was much more interesting than the score indicated, for the locals fought with the furv characteristic of the Tarboro High. However, the lack of a coach told upon our team. Immediately after this game, the team was lucky enough to secure the services of Mr. Ike Rosenbloom as coach. From that moment the team began to improve. After right practice, perfection was approached, thanks to our coach, and we began to play fast basketball. At this point, a great calamity befell us. Two of our main players were disqualified on short notice by the Superintendent and the team was forced to disband for the season. Page Fifty-three Bov ' s Basketball Team Mr. Ike Rosenbloom . . .

We don ' t know how you 11 like it; But please let it suit this time, ' Cause all our hopes are centered In these lines of Phun an Rime. 2. First, we ' ll tell of the teachers, Of our last school year of yore, For they ' re the most important features, And we hope they won ' t get sore. 3. Miss Shu ford, our English teacher, Tries her best to vamp a preacher; And, with many a modest pose, Constantly endangers our dear Mr. Rose. 4. Miss Spencer, the Business teacher, Doesn ' t care about the preacher; But just lei Ed come her way, She ' ll talk to him for half a day. 5. Then, there was Mr. Purcell, Who left us rather early. We don ' t think Mathematics fell For any teaching girlie. 6. There is Miss Millsaps, Who is kind, tall, and slim — She ' ll leave us, perhaps, When she finds the right him. 7. We have a Miss Morgan, too; She teaches Languages and History. We ' ll leave her romance up to you — To us it is a mystery. 8. Miss Sanders teaches Domestic Science, And will continue in this course, Till Richmond offers an alliance, Or, maybe, some other source. 9. The Seniors don ' t have the pleasure Of Mr. Hale among the teachers; But the Sophs have full measure Of his much admired features. 10. Mr. Rose is in full bloom, And sheds joy on us all; For when he comes into the room, Geometry loses all its gall. 11. Oh, yes, we have some Music teachers, And they ' re pretty good ones, too. Yes, they seem to like the preachers, But we can ' t tell it all to you. MISCELLANEOUS 1. To us Seniors many verses And phrases wind their weary way; Some of them may sound like hearses — But they ' ve come with us to stay. 2. Some of them Til tell to you; Others will repose In the minds of just a few. Well, here goes! 3. Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky, For Rosa Moye is passing by — And if by chance you hap ' to hear Some ivild expression, never fear. 4. James Alphonso Baker Was the school ' s chief mischief maker, But ivhen Rosa Moye came He soon changed his naughty game. 5. The Ninth Grade, if full of flirts, We hear that they put hymns in skirts. 6. On English class, we are so jolly. Who has greater velocity- — Margaret ' s loud and so is Polly; They both have much audacity. Page Sixty Fun and Rhyme (Continued) 7. All in vain have we sought, And in pain have we fought, In battles both bloody and drear — For the knoivledge and sight Of the privileges by right, Left by the Seniors last year. 8. THE HIGH SCHOOL ABC H is for High School, to our hearts dear, I is for Ills you never find here. G is for Good ti mes galore; H is for Happiness, always in store. S is for Smiles we wear every day; C is for Cheer, sending cares away. H is for Hurrahs when games are won; is for Our teams, who give us such fun. is for Our teachers, so learned and gay, L is for Love of our work and play. —M. B. 9. you want to see a sight, Look at John and Lucy Knight; Then you ' ll soon surmise — ■ " The Juniors dont tell lies. " 10. We came to school one sunny day, ' Tivas rather warm within — The weather ivas fine and all were gay, When Jimmie sat on a pin! 11. When joys all subside, And your heart seems to ' ve died, Before committing suicide — Think it over. If when eating you spy A great big apple pie, Before the whole you try — Think it over. Should you have some ill, As you almost surely will, Before you take a pill — Think it over. So when you read our annual noiv, And dont for us allow, Before you raise a roiv — Think it over. 12. Across the desk, on Mary ' s right, Sits Helen of auburn hair. Gaze once again on the wondrous sight Of Helen, the Trojan s fair. 13. Prithee, why so quiet sits, The maid in yonder seat? Prithee, is her heart in fits, Dost it loud or silent beat? 14. you find our verses bad, Or our wording makes you mad, Try to forget what has been said, Put down the book and go to bed. P. S. — We hear that the Street Paving Force has applied to Mr. Bachman for a Cook. We would appreciate any information on this subject. Page Sixty-one Junior-Senior Reception " All things come to those who wait. " The influenza epidemic had subsided; the annual was almost ready for press; the teachers were piling work higher and higher; the enthusiasm for basketball had abated; and it seemed as if nothing interesting would ever happen again. Joy! In- vitations to the Junior-Senior Reception greeted us. When the evening for this reception came, various members of the Junior Class escorted us to the Central Graded Building, where we found a room had been effectively converted into a reception hall beautifully decorated in green and white. Many interesting games and contests were engaged in, the most interesting being a Shakespearian contest. After the games, music and dancing, delicious refreshments were served. Truly this was the most enjoyable function of our Senior career. Thanks to our friends, the Juniors!
