THE 1960 MOUNT AIRY HIGH SCHOOL Mount Airy, North Carolina VOLUME IX I •l ts o 9S$ie JOE GRIFFIN, NEW staff photographer, works to become familiar with the press camera he will be using to help picture MAHS life. BEARS have roamed the mountains that en¬ circle us. Our town, built on a granite foun¬ dation, boasts the world ' s largest open-face quarry. So through the years the Granite Bear has symbolized MAHS--its students, its teams, and its spirit. LUNCH HOUR finds students engaged in many activities. Glenda Smith and Jake Cox pause to finish homework. 2 a z THE LATIN BANQUET is funf or students and teachers.

FOREWORD Circled by the ever changing, ever changeless mountains, we have grown accustomed to their beauty, protection, inspiration, and source for fun. So has it been with our high school. Both will remain a vital part of us, whatever the future brings. In this ninth volume of Airmont we have tried to capture for you the people, events, and spirit of these, our years AT THE FOOT OF THE MOUNT¬ AINS. 1959 MARSHALS include (left to right, bottom to top) Annetta Taylor, Brenda Burke, co-chief Brenda Hair, Elizabeth Sykes, Judy Merritt, Mildred Semones, Betty Collins, and chief Mary Oren King. 6 CONTENTS Page Administration and Faculty . .. 12 School Life. 20 Classroom Work. 46 Classmates. 60 Organizations. 90 Athletics. 114 Advertising. 126 Index . 134 " OH--LOOK!

HALLS SWARM WITH students between classes, before and after school, but echo in the more lonely hours after school when small groups practice or do special work. Our administration, furnishing necessary facilities, and our faculty, giving both class¬ room and personal help and guidance, provide the special climate for learning and growing that is MAHS. ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY HIGH SCHOOL OVERFLOWED into three rooms of the extension this year. Having only one inter-com when school started, Mrs. Christian, Miss Haymore, and Mr. Shelton (OPPOSITE PAGE) get together to learn the announcements. 12 -ag.-S SCHOOL BOARD (BOTTOM TO TOP, LEFT) Mr. R.

" I WANTED FOURTH PERIOD LUNCH, " explains Lucy Robertson to Nelta Woodson, as they discuss schedule changes to be made in the office. Since we moved into the new high school building in 1951, enrollment has jumped from 468 to 651. The number of homerooms has increased from 14 to 21. The high school has expanded into three rooms of the extension. Crowded labs, shared lockers, and a homeroom in study hall, however, are still problems. Overcrowded classes and conflicts swamp the office the first days of school. FOOTBALL SPICES the fall term with fun and excitement and work.

Crisp weather, snow covered mountains in the distance—and sometimes a snow-covered Mount Airy—bring the contrasting warmth of exams, a crowded gymnasium, and help from school patrons. WITH AIRMONT off to press and exams coming up, Ann Franklin, surrounded by books and notes, prepares for the mid¬ term ordeal. {■ Mce, NANCY COX IS the center of attention in the winter snow as Tommy Childress, Jimmy Phillips, and Andy Hennis prepare to snow¬ ball her.

CONCLUSION OF TWIRP season — the Sweetheart dance is enjoyed by Mike Cooke and Sue Carol Beasley. 29 " YOU ARE A HAT RACK, " commands Frank Lowry to Tollie Barber in senior play practice, as cast members Dianne Simmons, Ruby Hunter, Scherer James, and Edmund Burke look on in amazement. Mr. Ray Reed (INSET) directs play. A boy wonder, his teen-age gang, a pros¬ perous soap manufacturer, a brain special¬ ist and the wonder ' s luckless parents and teachers — backed by hard working com¬ mittees, director Ray Reed and prompter Sue Smith — came alive for the largest audience yet to see a MAHS senior play. Jinxes which had threatened during rehear¬ sals (measles, mumps, sunburn, a wreck, and minor confusions) did not mar the finish¬ ed production as The Perfect Idiot took its place among the senior plays noted for ex¬ cellence. TRANSFORMATION FROM teen-ager to mother of teen-agers occurs as Miss Thomas carefully makes- up Clara Edinger for the senior play. 30 ! " OH, MRS. TENNYSON, " (Clara Edinger) sobs the genius ' s teacher (Gail Wr i ght) as Mr. Tennyson (Wesley Caviness) tries to comfort Mr. Banard (Bill Baber), a dis¬ tressed principal, after the genius, without any apparent reason, quit all of his school activities. " COME ON, RABBIT, this is your den, " commands Frank Lowry to Eddie Hemrick as Edmund Burke immitates a hound. The unexpected arrival of their parents provided the problem of where to put the hypnotized soap executive. FIRST LOVE FOR boy genius Frank Lowry and his popu¬ lar girl friend Scherer James adds a touch of warmth to the Senior play. 31 CLASS OFFICERS AND COMMITTEE members are recognized at the junior-senior prom as they form the figure of a half moon, then dance to the theme of " Deep Purple.

DANCABLE MUSIC IS played by Art Lopez and his band. Years of anticipation, months of planning, and hours of intensive work decorating turned the Y into a fairyland of romance. A wishing well, fairy characters, and dreamy music formed the perfect setting for the most enchanting night of the year — the junior-senior prom. In their beautiful formals and white tuxedos, carefree teen-agers became enchanted princesses and princes for the evening.

I I 52 General science, biology, chemistry, physics, senior science, algebra I, algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, general math—thirty classes excluding the general business and bookkeeping taught in the commercial department—offer challenges to students for general or advanced courses. Overflowing science labs, stu¬ dents feverishly working math at odd times and places attest the growing emphesis on tech¬ nical courses and strain the physical accomodations pro¬ vided. GARY YORK works with a cow ' s brain — his entry in the science fair. MR. HUGH TALLEY, chemical engineer and alumnus of Mount Airy High School, explains to the chemistry class the use of the slide rule, a new piece of equipment added to the science department. 53 With classes in typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, business English, three teachers, and the latest office machines, the commercial department offers good basic training.

The carpentry class meets for three hours daily, carries two units credit, and gives experience in building. Members of the class also belong to Vocational Industrial Club. VIC OFFICERS. President, Jim Fleming; vice-president, John Martin; secretary, Roy Thomas; and t r e a s u r e r , Delmar Eaton make plans for the home that the carpentry class is building at Rock Bluff Park. THE NEW 19 59 INTERNATIONAL Travelall inspected by Bob Ander¬ son, Mr. Williams and David Simmons, adds class and comfort to transportation of the industrial arts department. The truck for¬ merly used is being passed on to the maintenance department. (TOP LEFT) FOR THE SIXTH year the carpentry class is build¬ ing a house as its major project. A carport and an electric heating system added to the usual six rooms and bath make the house more accommodating. (LEFT) CORRECT USE OF the rip-saw is demonstrated by Mr. Williams to shop students Jerry Leftwich and W.O. Collins. sfsgsSBHraHBESSss?assHg s v 8 i 56 Sewing, cooking, home planning and management, personal prob¬ lems, child care--these are just some of the many important topics studied in the five home economics classes. Work and planning pay-off for the girls during the annual fashion show and tea when they proudly model the dresses that have been worked on so pains-takingly dur¬ ing the year. Home Economics students get a practical demonstration of home nursing techniques as Johnnie Mae Ferguson plays sick and Mary Helen Pruitt takes her pulse; Mary Ruth Suthpin, Reva Midkiff, and Shelby Norman observe. PATRICIA JONES DISPLAYS her skill with the sewing machine to eighth graders Ellen Foy and Suzanne Hennis as they look over the Home eco¬ nomics department on Future Freshmen Day. ’IT ' S ALL IN KNOWING fabrics, methods, and cleaning agents.

AGAINST AN IMPRESSIVE modernistic backdrop the band, directed by Mr. Charles Johnson, gives an ex¬ cellent performance at the annual concert. Almost two hundred of our students partici¬ pate in the music program. Chorus includes both a class, meeting one period daily, and one activity period group who could not get in the class. Band meets as a class each day. GLEE CLUB TRIO — Carolyn Vaughn, Sara Midkiff, and Dianne Simmons — makes a last appearance at the annual spring concert. I 58 All freshmen take health and physical educa¬ tion which includes both textbook and field work. Added physical training is secured by many in the various " Y " programs. AS PART OF THE MAHS testing program, Bernice Baldwin receives her copy of the standard test from Coach Shelton. GERALDINE MONDAY directs the leaders club in an intricate routine during the Y.M.C.A’s circus. 5,212 Books, 50 periodicals, pamphlets, movies, film strips, recordings, one librarian, sixteen student assistants -- these give us a library that is in constant use for reference, assigned and personal reading. A massive testing program has been carried on this year in addition to the other guidance services. OUTSIDE EXPERTS ADD their knowledge to school in¬ struction. Sammy Hunter questions Mr. Burt Sisk, Social Security representative f r o m Winston-Salem, who explained Social Security to the seniors. 59 Mount Airy High School! Thy praises we sing!

Many students hold jobs in our friendly downtown businesses and more do their own budgeting and often guide the family buying. We enjoy a mutually advantageous association: ads build present and future customers and good will for business; they help the school publish an annual. Without our pleasant business associates the yearbook would be impossible. We ask you, the students, to observe this example of their interest in our life and to patronize our friends. 126 HERFF-JONES COMPANY E. W. Paddison, Representative HENNIS MOTOR COMPANY ) ? THE D. W.
