✓ A y j . ' y y . , s y y ■y y ) j foreword As the exciting, cherished, and swift moving experience of our time at M. A. H. S. nears an end, we look back with nostalgia on the days we have taken for granted and often wished away. The pleasant times we have had together at M. A. H. S. will always be a part of us. We hope that this 1953 edition of the Airmont will help you recall these plea sant times, along with memories of the countless high school romances you experienced, the friendships that you formed, and the understanding and helpfulness of the faculty who guided you. vm Contents Memories of our time at M. A. H. S. will include our school, our friends, our class and school activities, and the business men who helped make this second volume of Airmont possible. We hope you find them all within these pages.

Praised Good-bye, My Fancy’ For Sophisticated By LUCY ELLEN GWYN I “Good-bye, My Fancy,” t I senior play, presented to two [diences Friday, May 2, provok comments of praise from be groups but appealed more to t evening audience than the audience because of roles in the play. Mrs. Kate Barri’ culty said, " The sophistica. adult appeal of ‘Good-bye, Fancy’ would ordinarily be be¬ yond the young amateur to in¬ terpret, but precision in casting and unusual skill in interpreting placed the M. A. H. S. production j of this play definitely in the cate¬ gory of success.” | - Mrs. James Bray, president of I the Opera Club, remarked, “I ! thought the play was very well, ! cast. Patsy Oliver did exception¬ ally well with such a difficult | part.” Under the excellent direction of Mr. Arnold Ramey, Patsy Oliver, 1 Richard Greed, and Ed Crossfng- ; ham overcame great difficulties to take the roles of middle-aged people. Shirley Withers played the part of a pessimistic secretary with ease. Dottie Perry was really a scream when she got a little too much to drink at a school tea and had to be carried home by Bobby Finch.

The set, arranged by Loi Virginia Bianco, was att and very realistic as the rc a college dormitory. Ever from swim suits to skis adc the college atmosphere. Pro. managers Ann Swanson, f King, and Miss Annice Ever, left no attics in town unexplorei for properties. Others who added to the play were: Dot Tyndall, Libby Brown, Mary Nell Seagraves, Grady Irtye, Dayle Phillips, Roger Simmons, Marianne Jones, Lynda George, Bobby Haymore, Juanita Snow. " Millie Sue Pruett, Jackie Coleman, Evelyn Snow, Barbara Eldridge, and Jackie Vogler. e m o r i e S Latin Clubs Spend Old Roman Evening Amid decorations of ' .purple li¬ lacs. white dogwoods and crepe paper, the Latin clubs had a Ro- man banquet Wednesday, April 23, at 6:30 in the school cafeteria.: Approximately 80 people, attired in Roman togas, we re present J The menu was entirely of food. as the Romans would have eaten.

This will be the first junior play to be given in the history of the school, and Mrs. Christine Reamer, director, says, “I hope it .dll be the beginning of a tradi- ion, just as it is traditional to ave an annual senior play.” This is also the first play to be ven in the new high school audi- rium. “Men Are Like Streetcars” deals with a young girl, Maudie, who has developed lines and tech¬ niques and tries to educate her friends to use her “systems.” The young trouble - maker, !

THE BEARS GROWL This year the Bears growled but not as loud as they have growled in the past. They early lost three key players for the season and continued to be plagued by the injury jinx to the final game to rake up a score of 5 wins and 6 loses. The Bears began what appeared to be their most successful season by winning the first two games from Wilkes Central and Concord. Things look¬ ed bright until Agee Hiatt and Charles Kirkman received broken legs, and it was to be rough from there on in. They lost three straight games before coming back to take a decisive victory from a strong Greenville team. They then fought Gray a terrific battle before losing 13-6. The next week the Bears broke loose and ran wild in a homecoming game with Mineral Springs for a 39- 12 win. The following two weeks were gloomy for the Bears, as they lost to Tri-City Central and Reidsville and saw two more key players, Granville Sydnor and Bill Adams, join the injured list. In the last game of the season the Bears rose to the heights and walloped a big Charlotte Tech Team in a game full of thrills, touchdowns, and passes. To the 1952 Bears go our thanks for a job well done. Their excellent spirit gives promise of the accustomed growl next fall.
