" 'iz - L i '- V .V A WORD FROM THE STAFF The preparation of this the XV Volume of the Hi-Way has truly been a pleasure for us, your staff. The honor of representing you in the preparation of this book has been ample compensation for the multitudious hours expended. The work has been both pleasant and profitable. In attempting to secure ads from the various merchants so as to minimize the cost to you as a student, we learned much of the art of salesmanship and diplomacy. We have had first hand information as to what it means to contact a merchant and impress upon him the fact that the student body of THS wanted and needed his products and service. The prime focus in the preparation of this book was 'student appeal'. Fully aware that the over-all cost of the book must be limited, we have been able to increase the num- ber of pages in this volume over the one of lastyear. Thru the art work we have en- deavored to present some 'uniq' ideas which came to us extremely 'hard.' We hope that the 'ideas' and the 'quips' presented here-in will meet with your ap- proval and will help you to retain pleasant memories of THS thru the years.

High school was new, different, something to which we had looked forward for eight long years of grammar school. This first year in high school was an all-important year, and under the very capable guidance of Miss Frances Tabor and Miss Frances Sherrill CMrs. Moorej we success- fully completed it. Sophomores! The confusion and newness of the pre- vious year were forgotten. It was now our turn to look with amusement upon the bewildered Frosh! Perhaps the high-light of our second year in high school was the trip, on which Miss Martin took us, to Duke Uni- versity and our State Capitol, Raleigh. For one whole day we gleaned knowledge, not from a book, but from mu- seums, the University, the Capitol Building, and so many other interesting places. It was a day to be remembered. Also in our Sophomore year we began, on a small scale, making money for the next year's Junior-Senior Banquet. Our Junior Year, 1949-1950, held many interesting events for us. We continued our money-making plans for financing the junior-Senior Banquet by selling magazine subscriptions and hose, and by sponsoring a square dance. In all of these attempts we were extremely successful and on April 21, 1950, we held the annual Junior-Senior Ban- quet at the Country Club in Statesville. The evening of May 12, 1950, was another very excit- ing time for us, for on that evening we presented the jun- ior Class play, Little Women. The play was different, breathtakingly interesting, and completely successful! In addition to this, one of our members, yours truly, was chosen to represent Troutman in the "Miss Merry Christmas" contest held annually in Statesville. To us, as to a! Seniors, the arrival of Class Rings was a big thrill. The selecting of a class gift, class mascots, superlative-s, invitations, and class play were big events. The Junior-Senior Banquet, basketball and baseball games -all have a more special meaning for Seniors. Respon- sibility is ours now more than ever before, and because of this we have elected the following capable leaders President ........... ............. F rankie Henkel Vice President ...... ........ N ancy Stewart Secretary ......... ..... T helrna Edwards Treasurer ............................................ Bill Vanderford Graduation time is near, it will not be long until we are really on our own. Thoughts of the past are with us, but more important are our thoughts and plans for the future. With our motto, "Evergreen," which we shall al- ways strive to uphold, and with light hearts, and heads held high, we begin our journey into the Future. Audrey Loftin Class Historian Jai - +' f 'W' i c CLASS SONG V by Audrey Loftin The years have passed, Our sojourn here is ended. Yet e're remain Our memories of thee. The joys we've shared, The trials we've borne together, Have made us one- In love and loyalty. The future calls, And we must quickly leave thee. Our hearts are sad, As from thy halls we pass. But when we're gone, A part of us will e're remain. With thee, forever, Shall our love abide. CLASS POEM by Joyce Crews We're leaving you our school- Symbol of our youth- To go forward now alone To seek the Greater Truth. But what is this that lurks Within each heart- This inner surge of sorrow- As we begin to part? With open heart and mind We came to you. Desiring here to find The noble and the true. We hesitate to leave your Sheltering walls With memories re-echoing Dimly through the halls. We criticized you often, But defended too. Now, leaving, at last we know We were a part of you. f'Ql1 Q ' 1' Q 1' . . -. a . ' . V 5' . , " ' . 1 . ' ' 1 ' . 4 " H . e ' Q . -.-,' ' 4, ,- . -' 4 if -,, A' H, .f. ..-.

The warm room and the whispering rain made it difficult for me to keep my mind on the story that I was trying to write. Soon I could keep my eyes open no longer-and instead of sitting in my office in Nashville with typewriters jangling and phones ringing, l'm back in Troutman, North Carolina, but what a changed place! Instead of the small country village it was ten years ago it is now a bustling metropolis. Seeing the site of the old school building, where now stands a huge Public Library, brings back memories of my school days at Troutman High School. john Hopkins, and Anna Ostwalt and Addie Mae Robinson run the Cash-over Hotel. As we fly, I go up front to talk with Bobby Edwards, the pilot. He and Thelma, our class beauty, now have twin girls-"the image of their mother,'L.he proudly announces. Nancy meets me at the airport, and on the way to her apartment she tells me that Anna and Addie Mae and husbands are on a world cruise and that Carolyn Brawley is now married and living in San Francisco, where her husband is commander of the western fleet. Joyce Crews, with her syrupy Southern accent, is the rage ls that Mary Alice Compton coming out of the library? I thought she was in Europe on a concert tour. It is Mary Alice. What luck finding her here! After greetings have been made, we fall to discussing our school days and our classmates. Joe Ann Kerr CMary Alice tells mel is now in Washington, D.

From Mary Alice I also learned that crim- inals are almost obsolete in Trout- man since Sheldon Murdock is Chief of Police and Thomas Myers is a crack detective em- ployed by the city. Joan Har- rington now lives in Statesville where L. J. owns the Statesville Laundry. Leaving Mary Alice, I call a taxi.

Nancy and I are sitting and talking of by-gone days when the tele- phone rings. What a welcome voice! It is ludrey Loftin. I had heard that she is living in Buenos Aires. She tells us that our intelligent gal, Frankie Henkel, is in line for the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. Nancy and I decide to go to Washington to see Joe Ann Kerr and Bill Bryan Cansler, Secretary of Agriculture. Billy Bryan is busy when we arrive but upon finding that ir is a couple of classmates, he takes time to see ns. We tell him what we have learned about the other members of our ciss, ind he adds that Bill Vandeford now owns a chain of theaters in and around New York and that Leonard Plylet is an in- surance salesman in Brooklyn. Furthermore, he remembers that he has an unopened letter from Louise Pryor in the morning mail. Reading it, we find that she and Norris are living in Texas and line. The secretary is none other than Mrs. David Burrell-the former Wilma Crouch-and surprise of surprises-who is sit- ting behind the shiny mahogany desk but Billy "Fuzz" Nesbit. Talking with MISTER Nesbit, I learn that "Pete" Plyler, Bobby Edwards, and Ralph Perry are three of his ace pilots, and that Bobby Mills is lredell County Farm Agent, with Clinton Clontz as his able assistant. After much deliberation, I decide to fly to Baltimore where Nancy Stewart is making a name for herself as head nurse of making a fortune in oil, and that she has seen Doris and Jerry when they came through Texas going to Arizona for the winter. A telephone is ringing. Why doesn't one of Billy's secretaries answer it. Automatically I reach for the instrument. Oh! I'm back in the office and that is my phone ringing. Anyway it was a pleasant dream and I've seen the future of the Senior Class of 1951. MADELINE COLLINS Class Prophet STATISTICIAN'S REPORT I, Frankie Henkel, having traveled around the world on the back of a turtle, have never in all of my travels seen nor heard of a group so outstanding as the Senior Class of 1951. They are the most intelligent, the best looking and the most remarkable class ever to graduate, not only from Troutman High School, but from any school any where. The majority of this sagacious class are eighteen years old. The average height, decreased somewhat by the small- ness of Wilma Crouch and Doris Blackwelder, is said' to be 5'6", while we tip the scales at 126 pounds. Peering be- neath the shaggy manes of blonde or brown, one may be- hold either blue or green-eyed monsters. There is as wide a diversity in the tastes of our class as there is in physical appearance. Although a variety of sports is enjoyed, basketball and football take the lead. The favorite pets are dogs, cats, and horses, Billy "Fuzz" Nes- bit, however, has time only for women. "Pete" Plyer and Sheldon Murdock think june Allyson and Betty Grable are tops in the movie field, while jo Ann Kerr and Addie Mae Robinson swoon over any male movie star, especially Farley Granger and William Holden. joyce Crews and Audrey Loftin have as their favorite hobbies-dating and reading, the other members of the class have hobbies from collecting miniatures to hunting. Favorite classes-Econo- mics, English, and Shorthand-are attended almost every- day by some of the Seniors. Three of us even take El Espanol. After taking a poll of club activities, I have found the Library Club, Booster Club, Dramatics Club, F. I-I. A., F. F. A., and Beta Club being honored by Seniors. As for means of transportation, Fords and Oldsmobiles take the lead, with Chevrolets running a close third. The title of the most popular band goes to Ralph Flannigan, although The Old Maids seem to prefer Hill- billy Bands. Date and Dance Time, Music by Request, and the Lone Ranger were voted favorite radio programs. While listening to these programs-or at any other time- the class will eat anything: shrimp, pickles, and fried chicken being first choice. Of the many interesting ambitions the following are the most outstanding: To be elected' president, Billy Cansler .........,. Jo Ann Kerr ........................................ To get a man joan Harrington ........ To be elected Mrs. America. Madeline Collins ............................ To play baseball Clinton Clontz ....... ..,... . .... T o get married. Yours Truly ......,.........,........... To finish this report. In spite of these ambitions, however, some very fine- nurses, housewives, farmers, statesmen, politicians, and musicians should come from this class. In witness thereof, I have set my hand and seal here to the Report of the Statistician, hoping that you will never forget the many wonderful contributions we have made. We, the members of the Graduating Class of 1951 of Troutman High School, on this twenty third day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred fifty- one, having passed through twelve years of learning and being, supposedly, of sound minds and bodies with full understanding of our knowledge, but reflecting on the un- certainties of our mortal existence, do order, publish, and declare this report.

We, sixty--some strongC?J, under the guidance of Mrs. DeVaughn and Mr. Barker spent most of our year trying to adjust ourselves to our new surroundings. When our school started again, we were shocked to find that we were Sophomores. This year our guiding lights were Mr. Poston and Mr. Winecoff. Our subjects seemed much harder, with some of our members being slaughtered on the field of algebra, others died of English, while everyone seemed to enjoy biology. High lighting the year, was the explosion, due to the mixing of cooking gas and tenth graders in Home Ec. When asked what happened, this was the answer, "I merely struck a match, stepped back, and it went BAM!" Time marches on. Now we are Juniors-a year older and a year wiser four teachers sometimes wonder.J We are very proud to be resuming another phase of the process of education. With the help and patience of our homeroom teachers, Mrs. Moore and Mt. Poston, we gave our Junior play, "A DATE FOR DANNY," with fourteen members of our class in the cast. It was a decided success from every angle, and we were delighted with the many compliments on our production. This was one of our many ways to raise money for the Iunior-Senior Banquet which was a big event in April. Also our class is well represented in school activities. Many of our members may be seen participating in the Beta Club, F. H. A., F. F. A., Boosters Club and Dramatics Club. We received quite an honor when Mary Alice Alley was elected Miss Merry Christmas to represent our school in the Christmas Festival. Now as Juniors, we view our Senior Year with high hopes and ambitions. So classmates, keep your fingers crossed. Let's hope next year that we shall all be together as "Seniors," DAVID HINSON Historian COLORS MOTTO FLOWER Navy Blue and White "Keep Smiling."

But let's start at the beginning-ten years ago when we were little folks entering the first grade, knowing little of what lay before us. As time marched on, we marched with ir, all the time growing in wisdom and stature and in the favor of our teachers. Then the year 1949 found us as Freshmen beginning our high school life. After selecting our subjects, we took a deep breath and plunged into the daily routine of work. However, with the help of our gracious and patient teachers, we pulled through that wonderful year with ease. With somewhat renewed courage and ambition, we entered dear old Troutman Hi again after a restful??? summer. We started with the enrolment of sixty-five students in the Sophomore Class. To our disappointment, we realized that we had lost a few of our former classmates, but we had a few ones who helped to replace the others. To start the year off right, we elected our class officers and made plans for a Weiner-roast, skating and a movie party. Our subject teachers this year are Miss Miller, Miss Martin, Mr. Poston, Mr. Vance, Mr. Freeze, Mrs. Brown, and Mr. Kurowski. To most of us, the first report card, as is usual, was a little discouraging, but we are trying a bit harder to make higher grades and thus to reach the honor roll. A member of the tenth grade, Nancy Little, represented Troutman Hi in the county contest, winning the title of "Miss lredell.County Fair." It always take preparation for the future, therefore, to make money for our Senior year, we first tried our luck at cotton picking. After selling of articles provided by the Stanley Home Products Company, we sponsored a square dance and sold "T" shirts with the Bobcat emblem on them. By the time we are Seniors, we shall probably be able to finance our needs with ease. In the future, as in the past, we shall continue to uphold our motto, "Good Conduct and Courage Lead to Honor."

With the election of our class officers, we began plans to raise money for our treasury. By picking cotton and sponsoring a square dance we realized a profit. For the spirit with which we were greeted into high school by all students and teachers, we are thankful. Although there were hardships and disappointments, especially trouble in math and science, we pulled through with the help of our teachers and fellow students. After having taken part in many of the school activities this year, we EQ x SHIRLEY SIPES Hirtofian feel that we have earned our name as Freshman.
