The faculty of Valley Springs High School has observed, with pride, your growth in all the fields of human endeav or ov e r the past four years. Y ou r progress a s a group and as an individual h a s been quite gratifying to the people that have been most interested in your success. One very outstanding characteristic of your group has been your ability to get along within your group and among other groups. lntimes when industry con- siders that the chief reason for failure is the in- ability to get along with people, this is an import- ant asset for you. Perhaps this characteristic of yours and other groups of your age, will grow to influence our National leadership in its efforts to get along harmoniously with other peoples. When we stop to consider by what criterion we s hall u s e , we find that it is impossible to measure the success of a person by such limited things a s the amount of money he accumulates, the power he builds up, or the ease with which he fools people. No, success is not a stagnate state of being which one reaches and then stopsg rather it is a pr oc e s s , an active process with varying d e g r e e s . Success, therefore, can be measured only in t e r m s of growth. It matters not in what field of human endeavor you are en- gaging, if you a r e growing in that field you are succeeding. When you stop growing you will stop succeeding. We hope that you will keep that in mind throughout your life of serv ice to man. Valley Springs School shall m i s s you in years to come, but we shall follow you with interest in your wider field of service, Sincerely, Principal. ihe key to KNOWLEDGE 4JH'9l .wmwwwfm , I Q,:, 'aww N 5 as 3 7 n 8 iii! !7fT!J7Jl2l?dE fffTf?TT 611155 History It was fall,nineteen hundred and forty-four, there sat in the first grade rooms at Valley Springs, T ommy Ann Clontz, Betty Ledbetter, Ann Creasman, Beverly Price, Clark Lisenbee, Elaine Lance, JackStepp, ShannonCochrane, Roy Israel, Joan DuBose, Vickey Blythe, Ethel Kyle, Betty LouHollifield, Obie Moore, Maxine Tread- way, Leon Metcalf, Ann Weir, George Shipman, Edith Buckner , Bill Norteman, and Boyce Kanupp. As they grew in knowledge, they gr ew in num - ber when Charles Hogsed, Ola Thain, Robert Ball and Pat Campbell came in the third grade. Pat Campbell and Bill Norteman's stay was short, but Pat Hardie enlivened their vacancies in the fourth grade. ln the fifth grade Cordelia Higgins and Franklin Jones's quiet faces appeared for, were their looks deceiving.J Reading, 'riting, 'rithmetic continued on as Calvin Metcalf entered in the sixth, G. B. Gasperson brought Pat Campbell back with him in the seventh, and Gail Haney in the eighth. In the fall of 1952, fifty -nine freshmen enter- ed high school with their ambitions high and their dreams great. It was witha feeling of confidence and hope that we entered this new phase of our school life, never dreaming of the many pleas- ant events that were in store for us. It was tough, at first, but Elizabeth Tomberlin and JoanConner bestowed joy upon the freshmen with their appearance, as Bill Norteman crept in for good. The tenth grade b r ought Yvonne Kale and Norma Mid d 1 e t on , and we shall never forget world history. T-hen, inthe eleventh,we were as one, plan- ning and attending the banquet, ordering our rings, and watc hing our last upper class men leave. At last, we were seniors, our dreams had fl ou r i s h e d . We had the school paper, annual staff, electing superlatives, senior play, order- ing c alling cards, invitations, and finally, our caps and gowns. It is with sadne s s , and yet pleasure, we leave VSHS. We have fulfilled our ambitions and dreams, and take with us many, many pleasant memories. To any , we advise, school is short but oh, how sweet. cniar 611155 Officers President............. ......JackStepp Vice President . . . . . Robert Ball Secretary. . . . . . . . .

Duly Witnessed by: Class of 1956 QSEALQ Betty Ledbetter Cordelia Higgins Betty Bagwell Testator 611155 Prophecy Inthe summer of l975,after I had finish- ed my college eclucation,l started on ati-ip a- round the world. On my way through India, I met a very interesting Hindu , who said he could tell m e anything that was happening in other parts of the wor ld . Since I had not heard from my high school class mates after graduation, I asked to be told about them. He consented very graciously and by means of his magic crystal r elated to me the following things. He told me,first of all, that our very dig- nified president, Jack Stepp, has filled Clark Gable's place socapably that the movie direc- tors are considering making another Gone With 'le Wind. Dependable, Franklin Jones is now chief warden at State Penitentiary. I was not surprised to learn that our Patrick Henry, G. B. Gasperson,is avery influential member of the United States Senate. He told me that Elizabeth Tomberlin is an Internal Revenue Agent and was r e c e ntl y subpoenaed before S e na t o r Gasperson's subcommittee for in- come tax evasion, but fortunately was cleared of the charges. George Shipman's gospel re- cordings are now as well loved as those of George Beverly Shea. Cute Yvonne Kale is a bare back rider with Ringling Brothers Circus. After a tragic love affair Ethel Kyle has set- tled down to a nursing career. Joan Conner did very well as a commercial artist and is now an antique dealer in New York. Iwas surprised to find Tommy Ann Clontz is the head of the Control of Termite Depart- ment, which is located in Cedarwood, Wash- ington and ha s as her assistant none other than, N o r ma Middleton. Pat Campbell has succeeded Louella Parsons as Hollywood's gossip gatherer. T o m y great delight the Hindu said that Betty Ledbetter has opened a modeling school in Asheville and was very successful. Betty Lou H ol 1 i fi e ld , who loved the wide opened spaces ,is a duderanch owner in Texas. Robert Ball is Liber-ace's personal valet. I was told that C la rk Lisenbee is doing quite well for himself: he recently struck oil in his own back yard, Beverly Price is oper- ating a beauty shop in Florida, specializing in pedicures for pigeon-toed wom en , Charles Hogsed is a private detective , who was rec ent- ly awarded the Joe Blow Prize for his detect- ion of the activities of the termites. Ann Weir has become the m os t popular mayor Asheville has ever hadg she recently ordered the traffic on Patton Avenue blocked after 7:00 P.M. to permit street dancing. Pat Ha rdie , thrice wed, is operating a p r ofi ta ble tomb stone business. Shannon Cochrane is an archeologist with the Smith- sonian Institute. Hollywood sure has its share of 1956 graduates, Calvin Metcalf and Boyce Kanupp have made their movie debut in a male version. of "How to be Very, Very Popular." Bill N orteman has made a record for himself as one ofthe Navy's crackfnot crack- ed, pilots. Sinc e he and Roy Israel liked to dis a g r e e , Roy is now holding a post in the Army. Betty Bagwell has organized her own jazz band and has Ola Thain and Leon Metcalf as her soloists. The Hindu also told m e that most of the freakish looking hats that women are wearing are designed by one Joan DuBose, who was once a conservative child. VickeyB lythe and Ann Creasman, our athletes , have both rec eiv - ed fame. Vickey is an all-time favorite lady wrestler and ha s announced her engagement to Mr. Motto. Ann was recently proclaimed "Miss Hercules" of 1965. After all the ener- gy spent in high s c h o ol, Edith Buckner is a mattress tester for the Beautyrest Mattress Company. The clairvoyant saw that Obie Moore and Frank Harmon a r e p ub 1 i c accountants and know how t o deal with figures--proof: their pretty secretaries . Gail Haney didn't join the Navy, instead, she is married and living in a house boat on Lake James. Maxine T r e ad wa y has taken Read Wilson's place at WWNC. The crystal was growing dim, but I knew there was one missing. The Hindu began rub- bing franticallyg then it was clearer. Elaine Lance has started on he r' road to fameg her patented neck stretcher ha s hit the market with a bang. After this, the ball was dark. I thanked the Hindu for his kindness and with a lifted spirit continued on my journey. C ordelia Higgins - -Pr ophet Compliments of HAMILTON'S APPLIANCES Sr TELEVISION A PEARCE-YOUNG-ANGEL CO.
