Jack and Jill 

Climbed up the hill 
To get an education 

Jack fell down 
But Jill went on 

To reach her graduation. 

Let's turn back the clock! Remember those glorious days we 
spent when we were children? They may call us dignified seniors 
now, but we still have a wistful longing for those merry times we 
had not so long ago. Remember had we used to get spanked for 
climbing trees in our Sunday clothes? And how we never did 
quite understand about Jack breaking his crown when he fell 
down? For a short time let's reminisce — about Mother Goose — 
about our high school days — Let's have a childhood theme!

Jack was nimble, Jack was quick. 
Jack didn't stop with the candle stick. 

He used the contents of this book- 
He didn't have to look and look!!

Let's explore! No. it's not the dark interior of Africa or the cold 
Antarctic region but the 1939 Black and Gold this time. From 
a birds eye view we find that there are four main divisions of the 
book — the three schools: Hanes, South, and Reynolds; and the 
feature section. By dragging out our microscopes we discover that 
the material from each high school is divided into different sec- 
tions: faculty, classes, organization, and sports. The feature sec- 
tion proves to be a rare specimen worthy of some study as it is com- 
posed of priceless student snapshots as well as unusual sub- 
jects of the literary staff.

Bells — classes — sports — music — guidance — friendship — all 
these things we experience during a day within the walls of John 
W. Hanes High School. The doorway we enter each morning is an 
open portal to new opportunities, new contacts, and new means of 
self-development. May the door never close to those in search of 
a fuller life.

Mary had a little lamb 

That followed her to school 

Just to see what happened there 
Though twas against the rule. 

He tiptoed very softly in 

He peeped— then shouted, "Gee!* 
Turn the page and you will find 

The classes he did see.

Una White, Poet 


Margie Fulp, Poet 

The highway of life is winding — 
Its roadbed wet with tears — 

Through sun-kissed meadows of beauty, 
O'er mountains of doubts and fears. 

Turning, twisting, ever onward — 
Every mile a courage test; 

Tears, laughter, sorrow, and joy- 
Life's uncertain at its best. 

Yet, bravely we've set our courses, 
Determinedly we've said: 

"This be our motto—this our creed: 
Be sure you're right — then go ahead!" 

The happy years have brought us 

The looked-for goal, at last; 
We stand at the fateful crossroads, 

Our carefree schooldays past. 
Faces set to the rising sun, 

See the dawn of another day. 
With eager hearts and courage high, 

We start on our unknown way. 
There'll be many a doubtful by-path 

To lure us with its gaudy spread — 
Yet, we will pause and whisper: 

"Be sure you're right — then go ahead! 

We give our praise to thee, Hanes High 
For knowledge, experience, and joy 

Found within thy open doors. 
Oft victory we did not attain 

Still, we reaped from failure its gain. 

Alma Mater we pledge allegiance 
Our loyalty and true obedience 

To high standards and ideals 

Maintained during years of learning 

To which Fate grants no returning. 

Now while standing on the threshold 

Eager for the future untold 
Need is felt of sage advice 

Given by more noble souls 
To save us from unworthy goals. 

True, few of us may garner fame 
But may we live lives without blame 

So that memories may come forth 
Of time well spent for good of some 

Who needed help of small deeds done. 

Government of the students, by the students and for the students. 


Margaret Knott, Historian 

January, 1939, and only seven members of our 
class are left to complete the journey on the highway 
of Education. 

Five years ago, we, the graduating class of Janu- 
ary, 1939, entered the high school grades with the 
determination that we really would make history! 

Since law and order had to be kept in our 
school, Una White and Gray Shermer were among 
those who were chosen to serve on the Board of Al- 
dermen and the Police Club. In 1936, Gray was elect- 
ed Mayor of North High School. This was indeed an 
honor for our class, as well as for Gray! 

Rassie Mae Holcomb, Margie Mashburn, and 
Gray Shermer have been a great help to the Music 
Department of our school. All three of them have 
been members of the Glee Club and High School 
Chorus since coming to this school. 

Lucile Edwards and Leon Goforth have been as- 
sistants to the librarian, helping with library work. 
Lucile is also president of the Library Page Club. 

Una White and Lucile Edwards are the two mem- 
bers of the class who have taken an interest in journ- 
alism. Lucile has served as Associate Editor of the 
Black and Gold and as a member of the Pine Whis- 
pers staff. Una has also served on the Pine Whispers 

Taking an interest in sports were: Margaret Knott, 
Una White, Gray Shermer, and Leon Goforth. Una 
has been a member of the girls' baseball team for 
four years and a member of the soccer team for three 
years. Gray has been an outstanding member of the 
football, baseball and basketball teams since he be- 
gan his high school career. 

In 1937 our school's name was changed, and we 
suddenly found that we were no longer students of 
North High School, but of J. W. Hanes High School! 

Two other important events took place in this same 
year: Gray Shermer was awarded a Service Mono- 
gram for outstanding service to the school. This is 
the highest honor that a Hanes High School student 
can receive, so we felt mighty proud of Gray! The 
other event was that Una White even surprised her- 
self by learning that she could write poetry! She 
was awarded the prize for writing the Hanes High 
Alma Mater. 

In the spring of 1938, when all of us should have 
been making plans to graduate in June, we began to 
drop subjects so we wouldn't have to graduate! 

In the fall of 1938, we had a very easy time elect- 
ing class officers and superlatives. Since there are only 
seven members of the class, we just made up one 
committee and didn't have to appoint them. After a 
lot of fun, class officers were elected as follows: Pres- 
dent, Lucile Edwards; Vice-President, Una White; 
Secretary, Rassie Mae Holcomb; and Treasurer, Leon 

In November 1938, Una White became the second 
member of our class and the sixteenth student of our 
school to be awarded a Service Monogram. 

The Junior-Senior banquet will remain in our 
memories as one of the most outstanding events of 
our high school days. 

Class Night and Graduation will always be a high 
light in our memories. These nights mark the time 
when we stepped from the Highway of Education, 
into the Highway of Life. As we stepped upon this 
new highway, our thoughts turned back to our class 
poem and we thought of these words: 

"There'll be many a doubtful by-path 
To lure us with its gaudy spread 

Yet we will pause and whisper: 

Be sure you're right — then go ahead!" 


Believe it or not, we're being educated. 


Gray Shermer, Prophet 

Setting: Bowman Gray Memorial Stadium' Winston- 
Salem, N. C. 

Time: November 11, 1945. 

Reason: Hanes High — South High annual football 
game and homecoming for Hanes. 

I wandered along the fence toward the east gate. 
It was early and the crowd had not begun to gather. 
As I started to enter the gate, I met an old classmate. 
It was none other than Leon Goforth. I was hoping 
I would run across some of my classmates, for I had 
not seen any of them in four years. Leon was dressed 
fit to kill; looked as though he had struck a gold mine. 
I learned later that he is an office employee at the 
Reynolds Tobacco Company, and is in order for pro- 

After I talked for sometime to Leon, somebody 
called from inside the gate for him to come on. We 
said "goodbye" to each other, and he trotted off. 

I bought my ticket and proceeded to go inside. 
There someone else spoke to me — "Hello, Gray!" I 
turned around and, to my surprise, was faced by an- 
other classmate, Rassie Mae Holcomb, or rather it 
was Holcomb when we went to school together. We 
chatted over old times as do friends when they meet. 
Rassie, as you know, is a star in opera and doing well 
at it too. 

Rassie left me to find her seat before the game 
started. I thought I might wander a little more before 

game time and probably see some more of my old 
friends. I stood at the top of the stands peering down 
over the crowd, when suddenly I spied another fam- 
iliar face — that of Lucile Edwards. She was also a 
classmate of mine. 

I jumped over benches and almost fell trying to 
reach her before I lost sight of her because the crowd 
was thickening. We had a friendly greeting and talked 
over a few things that came up in our senior year. 
Lucile is the editor of a magazine as you might al- 
ready know. Partings were said hurriedly because of 
the hustle of trying to find seats. 

I started back to the top of the stands when I saw 
three more familiar faces. They were Una White, 
Margaret Knott, and Margie Mashburn. Much to my 
surprise they had met, just as I had met the others, by 
accident. We talked about our work and things of the 
past. It was done so hurriedly I didn't catch half that 
was said. Una is a private secretary; Margaret is also 
a secretary, and Margie is the wife of a well-known 
Hanes alumnus, who is now president of the Wach- 
ovia Bank. 

Well, where would you expect to find an old mem- 
ber of a football team, if his home team were play- 
ing? In the dressing room, of course. And so I went on 
with a light and happy heart, after meeting all of my 
senior classmates. 



We, the January graduating class of the John W. 
Hanes High School, small in number, but mighty in 
minds, do hereby make known to those interested, 
our last will and testament. 

Article I 

Section I: We hope Mr. Haltiwanger, our beloved 
principal who has given us many of his famous talks, 
will forgive us for trying to listen to them with our 
eyes closed. We leave him an alarm clock to prevent 
those who come after us from doing likewise. 

Section II: To Miss Dungan, who has been oui 
faithful task-mistress, we leave the sole possession of 
all honors and proud memories accidentally made by 
the January class of '39. 

Section III: To the faculty, who long ago gave up 
trying to reform us, we bequeath our very earnest 
appreciation for the efforts they have put forth in our 

Section IV: To Mr. Pratt, our esteemed band lead- 
er, we leave the well-known "Fats" Morgan and his 
Jazz band, so that they will be able to give him the 
latest dope on "swing". 

Section V: To the oncoming Seniors, the January 
graduating class leaves its positions, with the hope 
that they will be able to fill them. By special request, 
we exclude Margie Mashburn. 
Article II 

Section I: Rassie Mae Holcomb leaves to Rachel 
Berry her ability to "catch the boys." We hope 
Rachel will use it to a good advantage! 

Section II: To Mr. Johnston, Leon Goforth leaves 
his superior handwriting. Perhaps Mr. Johnston will 
be able now to read what he writes. 

Section III: To Margie Fulp, Una White leaves 
an extra foot of her height, for which Margie has 
been pleading. 

Section IV: Lucile Edwards bequeaths her smile 
to Pauline Coleman, who is sadly in need of one. 

Section V: To anyone who feels the need of them, 
Margie Mashburn gracefully leaves a few extra 
pounds of weight. 

Section VI: Gray Shermer leaves all the extra 
courses that he didn't take to Leo Hutcherson with 
the hope that he will make good use of them before 
married life sets in. 

Section VII: To Hazel Futrell, Margaret Knott 
bequeaths her speaking ability. Now perhaps Hazel 
will be able to say what she means. 
Article III 

Section I: We do hereby appoint as sole executor 
of this, our Last Will and Testament, Miss Maude 
Hale, she being the last word in Law. We hope there 
will be no disputes, arguments, or alterations. 

In witness, whereas we, the January graduating 
class of 1939, do hereunto set our hand and seal this, 
the twenty-seventh day of January, in the year of 
nineteen hundred and thirty-nine.

"As ithers see us." 


Pauline Coleman, Historian 

It was in the fall of 1935 that the "Mama's Darling" 
troupe of the City High Schools decided to appear 
for four consecutive years of performance at North 
Junior High School. (The name was changed in 1937 
to John W. Hanes.) 

We had the ambition and desire to give a good 
performance. In our freshman year the adviser who 
helped the members of the troupe perfect their acts 
was Miss Nicholson. With the help and understanding 
of Miss Nicholson, we began to see the light. 

We got through the freshman year with a success- 
ful production, although some of the troupe dropped 
out and new ones came in. 

The second year of our run, Mr. R. F. Johnston 
and Miss Alma Woodmore helped us over the rough 
spots. We had some dreary, rainy days but we kept 
up our appearance as best we could. We began to 
settle down and really give a worth-while perform- 
ance, one that would gain us the vision of our junior 

During our junior year, we had many trials and 
tribulations and the road was slippery, but Miss 

Maude Hale helped make the journey easy. By this 
time many were well known for their features and 
had received certificates of reward. Some had almost 
reached their goal, while others had fallen out in utter 
despair. The Junior-Senior which was held December 
20, 1937 at the Robert E. Lee Hotel will be remem- 
bered as the most important scene of our Junior year. 
We came to the last year of our performance; some 
had become a finished product in their act, while 
others were where they started. Miss Nicholson and 
Miss Dungan helped us make the final curtain. The 
leading characters in the fourth act of our high school 
drama were Robert Hampton — President of the troupe, 
Hilda Futrell— Vice President, Mallie Mae Bennett 
— Secretary, Nancy Lee Hanes — Treasurer. Our con- 
tract had expired, and some had theirs renewed for a 
half year. When we came to the end, forty five of 
us had successfully played our parts throughout the 
four years. Class Day and Graduation will long be 
treasured among our many memories, and we will 
always remember our motto: "Give to the world the 
best, and the best will come back to you." That's 
what we tried to do at John W. Hanes High School. 


Ain't we got fun? 


John Wooten, Prophet 

The time is 1941, the place Paris, France, and the 
speaker, your foreign newspaper correspondent in 
Gay Paree. So on with the news! Velma Ree Bowman 
and Nancy Moore have just arrived in Paris. They 
flew from New York as a publicity stunt after being 
proclaimed the year's most popular debutantes It has 
been estimated by a well-known columnist, that their 
debuts cost over $100,000 each. 

They inform us that the current Broadway success, 
"Helzafloppin" stars Elizabeth Tate, Jenny Lou West, 
Sue Williams and Wanda Woodruff under assumed 
names, respectively, Lizzy Taper, Jenny Westki, Sue 
Williamson, and Wanda Woodrufflan. The Coleman 
sisters, Kathleen and Pauline, are very successful em- 
ployees of the "U-Tellum" propaganda bureau. 

Hazel Futrell and Keefie Jackson, well-known 
night club warblers, have just introduced their own 
composition a smash song hit, "There's an Old Rou- 
lette Wheel in the Parlor." 

Leo Hutcherson is working in "The Tingling Bros. 
Circus" under the name of "Leo the Lionman". He 
has just been proclaimed the world's champion 

R. T. Casey, the great lover, is now co-starring 
with Ruth Davis in the new picture "Hearts in a 
Whirlwind." This is the first time they have co-star- 
red since they both won the Academy Award for 
their work in "Love Finds R. T. Casey," and "Little 
Girl, What Next?" These pictures have been directed 
by Cecil B. De Martin one time movie projector at 
Hanes High School. Edna Simmons has just won a 
trip to Hollywood and a screen test by saving Octa- 
gon Soap coupons. 

Bill Ray is chief hairdresser and manicurist at the 
"Elixir of Youth Beauty Salon." Mary Feimster, 
Daisy Pierce, and Helen Kiser are partners in the 
Acme Hairpin and Tractor Company. 

John Wooten and Norman White are sole opera- 
tors of the "Little Giant Canopener Company." 
Bobby Atkinson and LeRoy Bovender are the United 
States' contribution to the 1941 tiddledewinks team. 
Sports writers give them the edge over all competition. 
J. A. Adams has just completed the unfinished part of 
the Unfinished Symphony and is now playing in Car- 
negie Hall. Thomas Stewart, Roy Turner and James 
Vernon have been sent to South Africa on an expedi- 
tion to find the Lost Chord. They were sent by the 
Fortissimo Brothers, Research Laboratories Incorpo- 

Beatrice Harding and E. H. Knight are joint part- 
ners in the "Tiddle Towel Company," and in the radio 
business we have Mallie Mae Bennett as the outstand- 
ing female news commentator of the day and Gerry 
Murphy as the sound effect woman on the Chube 
Rose Dipsey Snuff program. Margie Fulp and Bob 
Shook are happily married and are engaged in the 
running of the Bumpkin Corner confectionary. When 
you're bumping down Bumpkin way bump in and see 
them. And speaking of bumping, Margaret Vaughan is 
now bouncer in "Tap O the Morning Night Club." 
Robert Hampton is an expert No. 1 janitor, and Hen- 
rietta Caldwell and Virginia Highfill are headed by 
Webster Lineback in the Sulfide Munitions Company 
of Humbug, Germany. Pauline Russell, a beautiful 
Spanish dancer, has just won the heart of James Har- 
rington foremost bull-fighter of the day. And in con- 
clusion, Lucille White and Frances Ogburn, outstand- 
ing sports women of the day, have just won the 
womens' doubles championship in Chinese Checkers. 

So Long, 
Your foreign correspondent, 
John Wooten 


Just one thing and another. 


We, the Senior Class of John W. Hanes High 
School, do bequeath, as sanely as possible after hav- 
ing had knowledge bored into our noggins for four 
years, our stupendous talents and our most treasured 
features, if we have any, to the incoming senior Class 
and to the faculty. 

Article I 

Section I: To Mr. Haltiwanger and the faculty we 
extend our sincerest appreciation for the kind efforts 
shown us during our high school years, even though 
they probably did no good. 

Section II: To Miss Dungan, our ever patient teach- 
er, we sadly submit our understanding of the Tragedy 
of Macbeth to pass on to the incoming Senior Class. 
May someone pity them! 

Section III: To Miss Carter we give our worn-out 
Senior athletes. We hope Miss Carter will use them 
for a better team in the future. 
Article II 

Section I: To Baine Gabriel, R. T. Casey wills his 
position on the Police Force. Maybe Baine will quiet 
down next year. 

Section II: Virginia Highfill wills her intellectual 
ability to Billy Nicholson. Billy, we hope you will 
win a medal now. 

Section III: Leo Hutcherson sadly bequeaths his 
football ability to "Bone-Crusher" Robbins. 

Section IV: To Helen Stewart and Anne Ruth 
Whitlow, the Coleman twins will their dignity to 
keep it in good practice. 

Section V: Bobby Atkinson submits his good looks 
to Dick Helsabeck. Make good use of them, Dick. 

Section VI: Sue Williams and John Wooten will 
their height to Frances Bannister and E. H. Self. 
Maybe Frances and E. H. will be able to see better 
in a crowd now. 

Section VII: James Harrington wills all his dates 
with Pauline Russell to Grady Reich. Grady, run if 
John gets jealous. 

Section VIII: To Martha, Hilda Futrell leaves her 
rival — that is, if Gray and Martha agree. 

Section IX: To "Fats" Morgan, Webster Lineback 
leaves his baritone horn. With this added burden we 
think maybe the band can make more noise. 

Section X: Elizabeth Tate wills her beauty to Mar- 
celene Lester. 

Section XI: Bill Morgan wills his places on the ath- 
letic teams to John Hall to give John a great big 

Section XII: Nancy Moore and E. H. Knight pre- 
sent Ivis Hicks and Gilbert Snipes their flirting 
powers. Their spirits will spur Ivis and Gilbert on, 
we hope. 

Section XIII: Frances Ogburn wills her ability to 
talk in Study Hall to Carol Branscomb. 

Section XIV: To R. F. Ball, Leroy Bovender wills 
his ability to make things out of wood. We hope R. F. 
will make something above an "F" now. 

Section XV: Beatrice Harding leaves her desire 
to ride in the first cab to soccer games to Dorothy 
Rumley. "Novistine quil fere dico", Miss Carter? 

Section XVI: Bill Ray bequeaths his rough and 
ready football magnetism to Ed Southern, so that Ed 
can make Coach Johnston's team. 

Section XVII: Keeffie Jackson and Edna Simmons 
sing so well that they are leaving their beautiful 
voices to Marjorie Stevenson and Mildred Maners. 

Section XVIII: Norman White leaves his singing 
ability to Horace Adams. Maybe the minstrel will 
bring better returns next time. 

Section XIX: Mary Feimster wills her ability to 
play basketball to Katherine Welborne. Be sure to

Demosthenes had nothing on the debaters at Hanes High who have journeyed to 
Chapel Hill four out of the five times that they have entered the State Triangular 
Debates. The query for this year was: Resolved: That the United States Should 
Form An Alliance With Great Britain. The team defeated Dobson and North 
Wilkesboro in the first round. 

James Harrington and Hilda Austin composed the affirmative team; Margie Fulp and 
Marshall Moore, the negative. Alternates were Evelyn Alexander and E. B. Mc- 
Bride, and Miss Lelah Nell Masters was coach.

The Journal-Sentinel photographer catches South's students in the spring — when young fancies wander — 


Elizabeth Crews, Historian 

When we bedazzled little freshmen entered high 
school, we had no idea that we would climb to the 
heights of knowledge and leadership we have now 
gained. And there were so many people! They seem- 
ed happy. Could it be that we were only seeing the 
gloomy side of high school life? Soon, however, we 
were jolly little freshmen running around quite at 
home in "our" new school. 

During our Freshman and Sophomore years we 
were combined with students from the seventh 
through the ninth grades. We were not yet so inter- 
ested in the school activities, but everone was working 
hard to lead his class in each subject. As we drifted 
into our Sophomore year, we were well enough ac- 
quainted with the teachers, organizations, and rules to 
begin holding small positions in the student organiza- 
tions. As the years rolled by, though, we began to 
climb to the top. 

In our Junior year our class was organized, and the 
most outstanding event was the Junior-Senior Dance 
at the Country Club. Also in this year Ormel Walker 
was elected vice-president of the school, later to be- 
come president. This gave our class a great honor. 
Those having outstanding school jobs were J. W. 
Sharpe, Ormel Walker, Erma Joyner, and Louise 

Slowly our Senior year rolled around. We were 
diginified Seniors at last, and in the early fall of 1938 
we were given those coveted Senior Privileges. 

The leadership of our class was placed in the cap- 
able hands of J. W. Sharpe, president; Estelle Welch, 
vice-president; Birchel Griffin, secretary; and Monroe 
Caffey, treasurer. 

We had many members holding responsible posi- 
tions in both the student government and organiza- 
tions. Some of them were Dorothy Byrd, Louise 
Ervin, Don Simpson, Birchel Griffin, and J. W. Sharpe. 

This year was full of entertainments as well as hard 
work. There was our Junior-Senior Dance and the 
trip to Chapel Hill. Twenty people from our class 
were able to enjoy the Chapel Hill-V. P. I. football 
game and band concert. There were also several other 
"get-togethers" where we had lots of fun. 

We had some members taking part in almost every 
school activity. The class as a whole (including the 
P. G.'s who were in our home room) also put 
over some splendid work in several small jobs around 
the school. A few of our classmates did some out- 
standing work in several contests the school entered, 
and we, the HA's, stood among the highest in the 
school's scholastic rating. 

We had a very pleasant school term and accom- 
plished much. All too soon the time for us to leave 
has come, but we leave with one thought in mind: 
"And when honor, fame, and fortune 
In our path-way lie 

Back our hearts shall turn to praise you 
As the years roll by." 


— and the South Blue Bantam gazes in awe at the Junior-Senior 


Mary Frances Wyatt, Historian 

It was September 1935 that we, the class of June 
1939, came to South High to begin a new page in our 
educational career. As freshmen, we were scattered 
about in twenty-one different home rooms with ninth 
and tenth graders. The surroundings were so different 
that we almost wished we were back at our old 
schools. The years that lay ahead of us till our grad- 
uation loomed far in the distant future. 

When upperclassmen began to notice us, it gave 
us a thrill that lasted. Progressively we came to look 
on the Freshman report card to find that algebra and 
civics would permit us to consider ourselves Sopho- 

Now, in our second year, we began to feel our im- 
portance (which was much to feel) in the organiza- 
tion. We were represented in most of the departments 
and began to feel that this, a part of the student organ- 
ization, was the place where we belonged. 

An astonishing change had been made when we be- 
came Juniors, since we were neither childish freshmen 
nor foolish sophomores. The class was organized in 
the second semester with Raymond Wood as presi- 
dent; Jack Brown, vice-president; Evelyn Shaver, sec- 
retary; and Virginia Darnelle, treasurer; with Mrs. 
Lavenia Fuller Robinson and Mr. Tom Wetmore as 
sponsors. With an organized class we left behind our 
shyness and awkward ways to become leaders in the 

The most outstanding event of our Junior year was 
the Junior-Senior Dance given at the Country Club. 
We all have obvious memory of the fun that resulted 
from the hard work put into it. 

The last page of high school days was turned when 
the title "dignified seniors," was bestowed upon us. 

Again Raymond Wood was elected president, be- 
cause of his leadership and service, to serve during our 
last year; Jack Brown was elected vice-president; 
Norma Allen, secretary; and Frances Elledge, treas- 
urer. In the school election Ormel Walker was elected 
president of the student body and Evelyn Shaver, sec- 

Norma Allen was elected as D. A. R. member to 
compete with the other two high school representa- 
tives for city award. 

Ormel Walker and Evelyn Shaver were elected as 
Mr. and Miss South High to represent the school on 
the division page of the BLACK AND GOLD. 

The second semester many of our class members 
undertook important organization jobs. Two of our 
class became officers of the student body: Raymond 
Wood, president; and Evelyn Shaver, secretary. 

Now that the last page has been turned, it is with 
regret that we leave our Alma Mater; but we rejoice 
that we have attained our goal.

'Tis May, the month of royalty — and romance — 


Miriam Peeler, Prophet 

January 1940 
New York 

I had boarded a plane in Florida to return to New 
York to my work after designing another dress for 
Estelle Welch, the most popular model of the year. 

During my trip, I met on board ship Doris Jacobs, 
who is the air hostess, and in the course of our con- 
versation, our graduation at South High ten years ago 
came up. Naturally I asked if she knew what had hap- 
pened to any of the people who graduated when we 
did. She said that after a long time — Marie Devine, 
Inez Ferris, and Mildred McGee were married. I also 
learned that the pilot of our plane was Billy Caffey, 
with Marguerite Walker as his assistant. 

On my return to New York, I saw Eugene Hutchins 
starring at the "Capitol" theater with Annie Lee 
Sprinkle in "Paradise." While trying to keep from 
being stepped on after the show, I ran into Mr. & Mrs. 
Clifton Dunnagan (our Louise Ervin), the leaders of 
the social set in New York. She said that Monroe 
Caffey had a "swell" orchestra at the Waldorf As- 
toria Hotel, and that Don Simpson had made himself 
a great name as a lawyer, and had as his secretary 
Arlinda Pardue. 

On Park Avenue I bought a New York Times, and 
in big headlines was "Elizabeth Crews, Worlds Most 
Famous Tap Dancer, Returns From Hollywood." 

On the professional page was Fostina Parsons pic- 
ture. She was to sing with the Metropolitan opera 
chorus on Friday night. 

The sports page held a big surprise. Bobby Clarke, 
the sports writer, had a grand write-up about the foot- 
ball team this year at Duke. 

Robert Davis had won another wrestling match, and 
Clifton Jaro is now the Demon of the speedway. 

In the mail I received a Winston-Salem Journal 
and a page of the paper had been given to the grad- 
uates of South High ten years ago. Erma Joyner, 
President of the P. T. A. at Forest Park School had 
made a talk to the present graduates of South High. 
Birchel Griffin had been made head nurse at the City 
Memorial Hospital, Ruby Hicks was the new owner 
of the Ideal, Dorothy Byrd is a teacher at South High, 
and Dorothy Leach is a well known hair dresser. 
Beulah Sink is librarian at South High. May Campbell 
is Dean of Women at Salem College, and Lawrence 
Williard is manager of the Winston-Salem Twins. 

Just the other day I saw a new pose of Bernice 
Clodfelter on the front of the Good Housekeeping 
Magazine. She has gone in for posing in a big way. 

J. W. Sharpe, President of the United States, is 
making a trip to Winston-Salem, and in his company 
is Ed Snider, the President's body guard. Elizabeth 
Williard has also gone in for politics. She eats, sleeps, 
and drinks them. 

Last, but by no means least, we have our doctor. 
Ada Woods, famous skin specialist, is in Washington. 

The mid-term class of South High has done and is 
doing what their school would expect of them, and 
we shall all keep trying to make a success of our 
lives in the years to come. 


—and heartaches— as well as spring fever need doctoring!

Good afternoon. This is station T-I-M-E bringing 
you the annual South and Reynolds football classic. 
The weather is warm and a large crowd is here in 
Phillips Stadium to watch these two teams battle. 

Today, November 8, 1949, we come to watch this 

As teams have not taken the field, I'll look around 
and call attention to notables here 

We notice the country's most famous woman law- 
yer, Frances Elledge, is here. 

Jack Brown, that sensational stooge on Uber Stan- 
ford's Hotamales Hour, is giving us an act. 

We see Evelyn Shaver, famous actress from Julian 
Wall's studio, surrounded by admirers. The chief of 
these is Ormel Walker, a Missouri Senator. 

We notice some teachers together near the side 
lines. Wait and I'll see if I can identify them. Yes, 
there's Martha Gray Mickey, Marjorie Reavis, Alma 
Ray, Dorothy Holden, and Leake Masten. Leake is 
teaching English at Atkins High. 

What a surprise! Mary Clodfelter, three times di- 
vorcee, has entered the stands. She has returned from 
Reno where she married Albert Waggoner, Texas 
Ranch owner. 

Down in front are such notables as Raymond 
Wood, executive of the Catchy Safety Pin Company. 
Raymond is with Norma Allen, his secretary and 
chief yes-woman. 

As you know, at any large gathering someone may 
faint or become ill. To combat this a number of nurses 
are here to handle any emergency. They include 
Virginia Peddycord, Margaret Simmons, Edna 
Harrold, and Bernice Sink. 

Mildred Markland, that modern Annie Oakley, has 
entered on the "old gray mare"! There is multi-mil- 
lionaire, Richard Hoover, a W. P. A. worker, in the 
guest box. 

These aviators are in the croud: "Non Stop" Wall, 
"Solo" Taylor, and "Crash" Charles. 

James Ashburn, cameraman from Keller Newsreel 
Studio, is preparing to take pictures of the game. 

Coach Kenneth Jones of the Decker and Edman 
Institute of Insensibility is here to scout the game. 

Howard Larrymore and Howard Haneline are sel- 
ling Di-Dee dolls. 

Across the stadium we hear an alumni band strik- 
ing up a number, and we notice the ole swing 
maestro, Stanford Miller, is conducting. Band mem- 
bers are Jack Dease, Elizabeth Hayes, and Helen 

We see out in front several clowns from Catherine 
Brown's "Gone With The Wind" Circus. 

Another distinguished guest is Aubrey Gray, mayor 
of that great city, Guthrie. 

Cheerleaders Jane Conrad and Jane Clark, out in 
front, seem to be spry for their age. 

To our right is Kenneth Linville, of the "$30 Every 
Saturday plan." He is with Bernice Sink of the Na- 
tional Board of Asylums and Harold Green of the 
Department of Fishstoryology. 

Matthew Priddy is selling oinment for black eyes. 

Traveling salesmen here are William Cranford and 
Allan Cude. William is selling the Brooklyn Bridge 
and Allan the Sahara Desert. 

This game will be followed by a talk by Bobby 
Rominger, of the Bored of Education who will talk of 
"Homework, It's Cause and It's Prevention." 


From the festival of music — and the festivities of Thanksgiving — 


We the January Class of nineteen hundred and 
thirty-nine of South High School, being of good health 
and sound mind, do hereby wish to publish and 
declare to all whom it may concern, this twenty-sixth 
of January, 1939 the following: 
Article I 

Section 1: To Mr. Phillips, our principal, we offer 
our sincere appreciation for his cooperation in making 
our years here successful ones, and we will him the 
incoming seniors, hoping they will do a better job 
than we have. 

Section II: To Mr. Bunn and Mrs. Blackmore we 
leave our empty seats, tardies, and grade books which 
we hope they will find much enjoyment in refilling. 

Section III: To the faculty, we wish to extend our 
appreciation for the instructions which they have so 
willingly tried to give us. 

Article II 

Section I: To Margaret Teague, Fostena Parsons 
leaves her slimness. Now she won't have to diet any- 

Section II: To Frances Vestal, Annie Lee Sprinkle 
leaves her good looks. I wonder why? 

Section III: To Rebekah Alspaugh, Buelah Sink 
wills her talent as "Big Apple Dancer," hoping she 
will follow in her footsteps, provided Rebekah can 
keep up with her. 

Section IV: To P. M. Lindsay and Campbell Hun- 
ter, Bill and Monroe Caffey leave their motto: "pulling 

Section V: To Rachel Vickers, Dorothy Leach 
leaves her short "bob." 

Section VI: Miriam Peeler willingly leaves to Cath- 
erine Brown her ability of always saying the wrong 
thing at the wrong time.

her height. With this added height Harry will not 
always be getting lost in a crowd.

his very rude waves, hoping Jim can control them 
better than he has.

Section XI: To George Crotts, Clifton Jaro wills 
that bad habit of "flirting."

ing ability to Ormel Walker. We sincerely hope this 
will help Ormel overcome his stage fright. 

Section XIII: The Seniors, as a whole, leave to 
Harry Bowman and Tom Shore their left over units. 
It seems they will never get out any other way. 

Section XIV: Robert Davis wishes Jack Brown to 
have his technique with the girls, because Jack is so 
timid and shy. 

Section XV: Ada Woods, Elizabeth Williard and 
Marie Devine leave their blushing to all little timid 
girls at South. 

Section XVI: Inez Ferris and Dorothy Byrd leave 
their "A" averages to Belvin Jackson. 

Section XVII: Eugene Hutchins and Ed. Snider 
leave their acting ability to the Dramatic Club. I'm 
sure they can't find anyone to take their place! 

Section XVIII: Elizabeth Crews leaves her dancing 
ability to Mary Frances Wyatt. 

We, the Seniors, do hereby wish to make known 
and close this Last Will and Testment on this 26th 
day of January.

Marguerite Walker, Poet 

Through the semesters we have grown 
To love, to cherish, and to praise 
The lasting spirit that's been shown 
Throughout our high school days. 

Work and play, joy and pain 
We've struggled through these years. 
We've failed, we've conquered, tried again 
Through laughter and through tears. 

Here we've found first love 

And acted like a fool. 

We've watched the golden moon above 

And broken many a rule. 

Now we awake from our illusions. 
The future lies ahead, 
And we must make decisions 
Of ways that we shall tread. 

Our grade will be both long and steep 
But we shall work and climb and fight 
Until the world lies at our feet. 
Then, we'll work to hoid that height. 


Chole McGill Yokley, Poet 

We studied for hours with torn-up hair, 

With spectacles perched on our nose 

And frowned and worked and worked and frowned 

For Graduation Day, we suppose. 

We lift our voices and shout aloud, 
To you, the Gold and Blue, 
And all this, my friend, is done, 
For the Guiding Star so true. 

Triumphant and victorious, 
Have been our high school days, 
And the spirit that we found at South 
Shall be with us always. 

How often in these joyous days, 
Beneath the hazy sky 
We studied and played joyously, 
And watched the trains pass by. 

Is this only memories of the past, 
Or is it really true? 
Are we leaving South High forever, 
To never again pass through?

No longer the woman who lives in the shoe 

Finds that her children have nothing to do. 
Where she once gave them broth, she now gives them balls. 

And the saxaphone's wail drowns their infantine squalls; 
For music, athletics, and writing, you see, 

Are part of South's plan for their activity. 


fliEU <^>aisi LL± Ihxouah 

To say that these leaders saw us through is no 
misstatement of fact, and South is glad for this oppor- 
tunity to acknowledge their fine leadership. Their 
task has not always been an easy one. There have 
been tough spots aplenty and situations that called for 
dependable direction and uncompromising standards 
of conduct and community service. 

They jumped their first high hurdle when the stu- 
dent body, by popular vote, said to them, "We be- 
lieve in you so thoroughly that we are willing to 
follow your leadership." But ahead of them was a 
still more difficult one, that of delivering the goods; 
for winning the respect of the crowd is one thing and 
holding that respect day in and day out until the job 

is finished is another. In this they have not failed us 
but have seen us through in such fine style that this 
school is a better place because they came our way 
and were willing to give their time and talent in sin- 
cere service to South. 

Our hats are off to these fine leaders: Ormel Walk- 
er, president of the school, 1938; Evelyn Shaver, sec- 
retary, 1938 and 1939; Raymond Wood, president, 
1939; Troy Watts, vice-president, 1939; Joe Bill 
Noell, assistant-secretary, 1939; Franklin Perryman, 
assistant-secretary, 1938; and Elisabeth Clay, vice- 
president, 1938.

Evelyn Boiling, January Class Poet 

We stand at the turning point of life 

And slowly turn our heads; 
We view the past with wistful eyes, and 

Wonder where the years have fled. 

Four pages have been filled 

With mingled joy and grief; 
Four years that were so long, 

But now they seem so brief. 

Four gay and carefree years had we 

Without a thought of future days; 
We gayly tripped down life's pathway 

Caring naught for blame or praise. 

One chapter of our lives is closed, 

To us these years have deeper meaning; 

We wonder how others can be gay and free, 
When a future world on us is leaning. 

We view the coming years with eager eyes, 

And long to see the future unfold; 
But though we are denied the eyes of seers, 

We are blessed with visions manifold. 

For we have youth end faith and hope, 
And we are equipped to fight the foe. 

Our privilege is to choose the road 

That will lead to riches or fame or woe. 

As we go on to other chapters in our life, 

We pray that God will guide our faltering step, 

And make our life clean-lived, well spent, 

Climbing heights unattainable without His help. 

So when our final chapter is closed, 

And we go upward to our goal; 
We pause to tribute to our Helper, 

And ask His blessings upon our soul. 


Marjorie Patterson, June Class Poet 

Pine cones, clustered, rustic, 

Nature's finest art 

Pine trees' woodsy fragrance 

Lifts the heavy heart — 

Pine trees, straight and slender, 

Bending in the wind; 

Pine groves make a haven 

For the weary mind. 

Pine boughs, graceful, arching, 
Form a temple dome 
Pine woods, sighing sadly 
Turn our thoughts to home — 
Pine needles, tiny spears 
Glisten in the rain; 
Pine trees whisper softly, 
Call us back again. 

Pine trees mark thee, Reynolds, 
Seem a part of thee — 
Pine trees, when we wander, 
Send us back to thee. 


Borrowed finery— Eight-thirty landmark. 


Mary Frances Barnes, Historian

1935, when, as a small group of blank-expressioned 
boys and girls, we arrived at the Richard J. Reynolds 
High School. Here, in spite of the strict rules and reg- 
ulations which we had heard about, we hoped to at- 
tain what is desired by everyone in the walk of life, 
an education. 

We, as did the freshmen prior to us, occupied the 
peanut gallery in chapel, and also were often reminded 
by the upperclassmen of our radiator fee. Thus, our 
freshman year, composed of the usual bumps and 
knocks, passed slowly but surely under the competent 
supervision of our homeroom teacher. Miss Ruth 

With the beginning of our sophomore year, we be- 
gan to realize that the road was difficult to trod, and 
that earnest effort was our greatest need for contin- 
uous advancement. With this thought in mind, we 
began to express ourselves without hesitation and our 
bewildered countenances took on new expressions. 

Our junior year found us becoming more and more 
essential to the school. Our earnest and capable offi- 
cers and our sincere determination to win, helped us 
to pass, with few difficulties, this part of our school 
career. Also during this period, our attendance at the 
junior-senior dance and numerous other parties and 
banquets, increased our social life in the school. 

When we eventually reached this, our senior year, 
we boasted of our privileges, but the question of 
where they are is yet to be settled. With Carr Smith 
and Paul Davis as our presidents, John Harrington, 
our vice-president, Dick Maynor, secretary, and Mar- 
tha Fant, our treasurer, we have managed to come to 
the time of our graduation, along with the aid of our 
capable sponsor, Miss Annie Preston Heilig. 

Thus, with a heavy heart and minds brimful of 
knowledge, we bid farewell to our Alma Mater and 
prepare to fill our places in the world of tomorrow. 


Schedule upset — Artist's model — "If I had the wings of an angel", 


Charles White, Prophet 

The persons who made it possible for me to trans- 
cribe this class prophecy of the January graduating 
seniors, 1939, were two very efficient instructors in our 
science department. Working in collaboration, they 
were able to produce an intricately ingenious ma- 
chine, which, for the want of a better name, they 
called the "Futureoscope." 

The machine was assembled at our last class meet- 
ing and each student was given the privilege of a 
glimpse into futurity. Some declined, however, this 
unusual chance to look beyond the calendar. 

The students, after seeing that no bodily harm 
was to be inflicted by the machine, dedicated their 
time, and in quick succession saw their future un- 
folded before their eyes. 

Mary Frances Barnes, placing her hands on a ball 
of sensitive metal, became visible on a translucent 
screen. She beheld herself jubilantly "beating around 
the mulberry bush" as she left the White House. It 
seems that she had just received a substantial in- 
crease in salary as secretary to the President. 

Dick Maynor next stepped to the machine, and as 
he touched the delicate mechanism, he saw himself 
appearing on Broadway with amazing success in the 
theatrical production "The Invisible Man", by H. G. 

Martha Fant saw that several years hence she was 
to be an author. Her most inspired work, "How To 
Smile At Men and Get Away With It", was then 
being edited. 

It was revealed to Phyllis Pinkston that in the 
summer of 1960, she would sail to Europe to make 
an unrestricted study of her hobby, counting the 
bumps on the heads of various inmates in the Eng- 
lish bug-houses. 

Paul Davis found he was to employ his skill at 

the WSJS Radio Television Station, announcing the 
Saturday Morning Kiddie Show, the realization of 
an ambition sacred to him. 

Irene Canada, better known as "Betting Irene," 
could be found at most of the well known race. tracks. 
She claimed the notoriety of being the world's worst 

According to the "Futrueoscope", Thomas Boyles 
had the strangest profession yet known. He controlled 
the size of holes in doughnuts. If the holes were too 
large, doughnut stock dropped rapidly; if too small, 
it was certain that the weight of his pay envelope 
would decidely diminish. 

On the screen of this remarkable invention it was 
shown that in 1960, Charles Holder was in demand 
everywhere as an orchestra leader. He was paid 
weekly according to the enthusiasm of his fans. 

Jean Bowles and Olga Cox had incorporated their 
efforts in the research work of feminine dietetics. 

The Cash and Cook Haberdashery Shop, a part- 
nership of Charles Cash and Reginald Cook, was 
unique in the fact that it could supply anything in 
masculine attire. — even a brassless collar button. 
These boys were married and didn't have a care in 
the world. 

Lillian Allred and Lottie Chitty were preparing 
their rocket ship for another dash around the world 
in an attempt to better their previous time of three 
days and fourteen minutes. 

John Fry was pursuing happiness on the ocean 
floor looking for gold lost by sunken ships. John had 
many prospects for a life-time partner, but he had 
bided his time and remained a satisfied bachelor. 

John Harrington and John Spainhour had become 
dictators of two very peaceful little countries in the

Stage door— Jungle stroll— Simple and sweet 


As we, the class of January, 1939, arc graduating in 
the midst of "after Christmas bustle" and have still 
that spirit of generosity that always accompanies this 
cheerful season, we feel it to be a fitting time to be- 
queath some prosperity to the new year. 

We do hereby accept our sheepskins* and in return 
bestow in this, our last will and testament, all the in- 
disputable qualities and possessions which we have 
so gracefully acquired at good old R. J. R. 
Article I 

Section I: We leave to Reynolds High School, the 
fame, the power and the honors that we shall accumu- 
late in the years to come, "add to her fame and 
power" forever. 

Section II: To the throngs of weary classmates that 
we leave behind, lost in the wilderness of Macbeth, 
we grant our sincerest sympathies. 

Section III: To those few swimmers in the student 
body who can't even stay afloat, we leave a life boat 
which is anchored just outside the publications office. 

Section IV: To our teachers we humbly give thanks, 
and to our principal, Mr. Joyner, we bequeath sincer- 
est gratitude. 

Section V: To Miss Doris Voss and the girls in the 
office we voice a request for a special favor: turn the 
office clock back 10 minutes in order that our fellow- 
men may be on time. 

Section VI: For the dietitian we pray that the new 
year will be bright with hungry stomachs and hearty 

Section VII: To the librarians, Misses Flynn and 
Nicholson, we leave boundless appreciation for their 
patient aid in library work. 

Article II 

Section I: Dick Maynor, one of the supports of the 
gridiron, leaves his fighting spirits and tiger claws to 
any of those self-confident boys who "hope" to make 
the team. 

Section II: Paul Davis, the shining star in a history 
class discussion, wishes to bestow the remainder of 
his timely talents on the square shoulders of George 

Section III: Petite Phyllis Pinkston modestly leaves 
to Edna Sprunt her characteristic little laugh. 

Section IV: Martha Fant leaves the practice of her 
flirtations with Marie Kimball and her three associates, 
better known as the R. J. R. threesome. Mary Lou 
Blanton, Virginia Hutchinson, and Margaret Austin. 
Martha stresses the fact that her practice is quite large 
and she feels that it will take all four pairs of these 
inexperienced hands to handle it efficiently. 

Section V: The versatile Evelyn Boiling has chosen 
as her successor Jackie Peddicord for her surpassing 
and unusual ability to make so many friends. 

We do hereby appoint our principal and friend, 
Mr. C. R. Joyner, sole executor of this our last will 
and testament. 

In Witness Whereof, we do set our hand and seal, 
this, the twenty-seventh day of January, nineteen hun- 
dred and thirty-nine.

Glamour girls in the making — Jitterbug— The eternal triangle 


Marjorie Williams and Carlyle Mangum, Historians 

As the hour for the final graduation exercises ap- 
proaches, we who are seniors, realizing that our days 
in high school are about to be ended, begin to think 
over the many happy days we have spent during our 
four years at Reynolds. Memories of the crowded 
events return to our minds, and as we reminisce, it 
seems that it was only yesterday that we entered high 
school as freshmen. 

Although our memory is quite vague as to many 
definite activities during our freshman year, how well 
we remember the first day when we misunderstood the 
room number and went all over the first floor hope- 
lessly searching for room 101. That year Bill Soyars 
was our representative to the council, while Mary 
Louise Rhodes drew the attention of the student body 
to the freshman class by winning the Fire Prevention 
Essay Contest. 

By our second year we began to think that we knew 
how to run the school. Bill East was chosen as the 
class president, with Carlyle Mangum as our council 
member. In the spring of our sophomore year, B. R. 
Browder won the Rotary cup for declamation. 

As juniors we first showed our interest in the more 
important things of school life, and before long many 
of our group were gaining honorary recognition. For 
our class officers, we elected Bill Woodall president; 
Hunter McElrath, vice president; William Wommack, 
secretary; and Jacqueline Peddicord, treasurer — all of 

whom helped make our Junior-Senior that year a big 
success. Being juniors, we had three representatives 
to the student council: Sara Bowen, who was secre- 
tary; Bahnson Gray; and Bill East. 

The spring term of our junior year brought many 
events. Moyer Hendrix became the proud owner of 
the state singles tennis championship; while Mildred 
Helderman won the declamation contest for girls the 
second time. B. R. Browder went to Chapel Hill with 
the debating team where they went as far as the semi- 

Looking back over our final year of high school, 
we are reluctant to talk of the days that will soon 
mean graduation for us. As seniors we added to the 
record we made in the past, both in scholarship and 
athletics. For officers we elected Moyer Hendrix, pres- 
ident; Kenneth Clay, vice-president; Thornton Rose, 
secretary; and William Wommack, treasurer. Our 
representation in the council was held by Carlyle 
Mangum, Bill Soyars, and Ted Borthwick; while 
Betty Yates was reelected for the fourth year to the 
House of Representatives where she is secretary. 
Leaders were not limited to these officers, but many 
others in sports, dramatics, publications, and clubs 
have helped to make our school life more enjoyable. 

It seems all a dream now as we look back over it, 
but in a few days the reality of graduation will be 
upon us when we will no longer be members of the 
Richard J. Reynolds High School. 


One foot in the groove — posed (not that the others weren't) — mascot's prize grin. 


We, the June class of 1939, do make, declare, and 
publish this, our Last Will and Testament. 

Foremost in the list of our possessions which we 
will to our legal heirs are our privileges. To the up- 
and-coming juniors go our seats in chapel, our digni- 
ty, and the other privileges which are hereditary with 
the title of senior. 

To those who have been instrumental in seeing 
that we carried out our daily work well — to the spon- 
sors, Miss Ford and Miss Whitley; to the faculty; 
the principal, Mr. Joyner; and the office personnel we 
bequeath our undying gratitude for services rendered. 

To a few individuals, the graduation of the class of 
'39 means the relinquishing of certain superlative qual- 

To his brother, Roger, Moyer Hendrix wills his all- 
around talents that Roger might be able to carry on 
the good name of Hendrix for at least another genera- 
tion at Reynolds High School. 

To Fulton "Flash" Ferree, Marjorie Williams 
leaves her invincible journalistic ability in order that 
Fulton may some day get over his shyness. 

Sebia Midyette and Mary Lou Brown bequeath 
their power to lead the stronger sex around "by the 
coat tail" to June Batten and Frances Swing. 

Mildred Helderman, John Dunnagan, and W. P. 
Covington III bequeath their dramatic talent to any 
underclassmen who deem themselves worthy of grac- 
ing the stage of Reynolds Auditorium. 

To Shirley Gosselin and Catherine Bacon, Margaret 
Austin and Virginia Hutcheson bequeath their Da- 
mon-Pythias friendship. 

We, the June class, of 1939, now turn the job of 
running Reynolds High School back into the hands 
of Principal Joyner. For four years we have relieved 
him of the responsibility of his former job, but now 
realizing that there is no one who could ably succeed 
us, we place the job back in his capable hands. 

And as our last bequest, we, the June class of 1939, 
realizing that for the most part our high school career 
has been a successful and interesting one, respectfully 
request that our epitaph read; "Here lies the June 
class of '39 — they did their job well." 

In Witness Whereof, we, the June Class of 1939, 
have set to this, our last will and testament, our seal, 
this sixth day of June, in the year of our Lord, nine- 
teen hundred and thirty- nine.

Hard-boiled editor — Mayor for an hour— Victim of writer's cramp 


Calder Womble and Henry Newsome, Prophets 

Time- 1955 

Place— Main Street of the world's fourth largest city, 
Winston-Salem, N. C. 

Characters — Calder Womble, L. L. D. 
Henry Newsome, M. D. 

Newsome— Well, if it isn't our Beau Brummel of the 
Senate, Calder Womble. How's the world treating 
you, master mind? 

\Vomble — Just fine, Doc, how're your guinea pigs do- 

Newsome — Oh, they're o. k. I guess. What have you 
been doing these last few years? I haven't seen you 
since the 1945 Duke-Carolina game. Say, that was 
a game, wasn't it? Carolina would have done more 
than tie you though, if the game hadn't been called 
because the water boys, Bill Johntz of Duke and Bill 
Hill of Carolina, got into a fight over who was to 
take co-ed Mary Garvey to the five day Senior 
Hop in Raleigh. 

Womble — Aw, you wouldn't have either. Carolina 
was lucky to get off with a tie. 

Newsome — That's just your idea. Say, how did that 
breach of promise suit come out that Mae Martin — 
better know by her screen name May East- 
brought against play-boy Ted Brothwick? 

Womble — I defended poor Ted as well as any one 
could against such experienced witnesses as Helen 
Thomas, Morton Silverstein, and Juliana Hanks. 
Hugh Ratcliff, the plaintiff's counsel had a rather 
weak case, but Mae's personal charms made up for 
that and caused Judge Sam McCracken to give her 

Newsome — 1 don't doubt it. By the way, did you 
read the editorial in the New York Times in which 
Bill East blasted the recent presidential campaigns 
of Moyer Hendrix, communist, Jack Trotman, anti- 

prohibitionist, and Bill Wallace, the victorious De- 
mocratic nominee? 

Womble — I certainly did. Say, what kind of a first 
lady of the land do you suppose the former Mary 
Lou Brown will make? — All of which reminds me 
that I saw her at a prize-fight the other night when 
Willard Beeson took the heavy-weight title from 
Buddy Powell, Jr. She was escorted by Frank Al- 
spaugh, who recently made quite a hit in the 
"Sweetheart of Frankenstein", co-starring with Nan 
Davis who made her debut two years ago in 
"Nature's Best.'' Seated next to them were those 
chorus-boys Raymond Masten, Charlie Murray, 
Chauncey Cunningham, and Charlie Tucker. 

Newsome — That sounds like old home week. I re- 
member when all those now famous people were 
mere students back at Reynold's High. Have you 
heard what's become of any other of our old class- 

Womble — I surely have. Rosa Lee Kirby has just an- 
nounced her engagement to Mahatma Gandi's 
grandson. David Ashburn, by the way, has just 
joined the French Foreign Legion with Bill Seawell, 
who was just sworn into the Bachelor's Club by 
President Buddy Yates. Kenneth Clay has become 
sole owner of "Ye Olde Curb Service Shoppe " 
which covers a whole block in Chicago. Mary 
Louise Rousseau just made public her intention to 
devote the rest of her life in running a home for 
other spinsters disappointed in love. That's ail I 
can think of except that someone told me that B. R. 
Browder has made good since he organized his 
band. Can't you think of someone else? 

Newsome — Let me see! Several of them have gone 
back to carry on the work at dear old R. J. R.

10A CLASS— These are the rising seniors — 260 strong. As their leaders they have 
chosen Roger Hendrix, president; Sara Crowell, vice president; David Lewis, sec- 
retary; and Paul Denny, treasurer. The class sponsor is Miss Irene Jones. The 
most important social event of the year for the junior class is the traditional Junior- 
Senior, usually a dance. This year a dance was given in honor of the graduating 
class in the school gymnasium. Roger Hendrix as president of the class, was in 
charge of all committees. It is from the 10A class that the president and vice presi- 
dent of the school are elected for the coming year. The secretary of the school for 
this year was Mary Lucy Baynes, member of this class who is also managing 
editor of the Pine Whispers. The 10A council representatives are Joe Trollinger 
and Bill Lambeth. During this past year Henrie Harris won from the three high 
schools of this city in the oratorical contest sponsored by the American Legion. 
Also, Thad Tate won second prize in this city in the state-wide Highway Safety 
Contest sponsored by the State Highway Department. Annually, the senior mar- 
shalls, girls who usher at the graduation exercises, are chosen from the 10A class. 
This year those chosen were Mary Lucy Baynes, Algine Neely, Frances Swing, 
Jane Cannon, Lucille Fowler, Claire Martin, Nancy Nunn. Betty Lee Spainhour 
They are nominated and elected by the members of the senior class.

REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL— What was once just a fond hope in the minds of 
R. H. Latham and the late Mrs. Katherine Smith Reynolds-Johnston has been 
transformed into a more than true realization today in the form of one of the 
South's greatest educational plants. It was just fifteen years ago last fall that the 
first complete school year was begun in the great building which serves as the main 
educational plant for the school today. 

In 1919, first plans for the school which was to serve the growing city of Winston- 
Salem were made. The main academic building, composed of 68 rooms and located 
on the site of 28 acres, and the modern heating plant were the first buildings to be 

While construction was going on, the Cherry Street High School burned on the 
night of January 9, 1923. After a three-day holiday, the students started to Rey- 
nolds High, which was still under construction. 

The Reynolds auditorium was the gift of the late Mrs. Katherine Smith Reynolds- 
Johnston to the youth of Winston-Salem in memory of her husband, the late 
Richard J. Reynolds. In early 1924, the auditorium for the school was completed 
at a cost of $700,000. Seating 2,250, it was considered the finest auditorium in 
this section. Mrs. Reynolds personally supervised parts of the construction.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL— Is the most vital organization in Reynolds High 
School. It is the main governing body and takes an active part in backing all 
worthy extra — curricular projects of the school. The four officers of the council 
are also the officers of the entire school. They are elected annually in the spring 
to serve for the coming year. The president and vice-president are chosen from 
the rising senior class; secretary, from the rising junior class; and the treasurer, 
from the rising sophomore class. This year's officers are Bahnson Gray, president; 
Mary Louise Rousseau, vice-president; Mary Lucy Baynes, secretary; and Bob 
Warren, treasurer. Besides the officers there are ten council members, chosen 
according to class rank. 


HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES— The House of Representatives along with 
the Student Council, is the governing body of the school. This division is in charge 
of the misdemeanors around the school such as hall and campus regulations. It is 
responsible for placing hall monitors throughout the building whose duty it is to 
see that all students obey school rules. One representative is chosen from each 
homeroom annually or semi-annually as each class wishes. Officers are elected from 
the membership in the fall; however, if there is any change in personnel, in the 
spring also. Present officers are Frank Alspaugh, speaker; Mary Garvey, speaker 
pro tern; Betty Yates, secretary; Joe Smith, treasurer; and James Pfaff, executive 
member to the council.

DEBATERS— The bitter disappointment of defeats by both opponent teams in the 
triangle, then the exhileration of victory at Wake Forest. The affirmative team 
of B. R. Browder and Jane Llewellyn was judged the third best in the state, and 
the negative team of Buddy Yates and Watt Martin, second. Buddy and Watt 
were said to be among the ten best debaters of the state. Congratulations!

QUILL AND SCROLL — Thirteen may be an unlucky number, but it's the lucky 
thirteen who make up the Odd Number Chapter of the Quill and Scroll. Limited 
to thirteen members, the society stresses scholarship and outstanding work in 
journalism. These students are mainly responsible for the publication of Pine 
Whispers and the Black and Gold. You can recognize them on their induction 
day by the trailing black robes with the red scarfs.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY- Quiet music, lighted tapers, solemn black robes, 
hushed expectancy — an Honor Society induction. Sober students are brought to the 
stage and installed as members with these words: "I pledge myself ... to make its 
ideals the ideals of my school." The ideals are scholarship, service, leadership, 
and character. Based upon these cardinal virtues, the Alpha Chapter of the 
National Honor Society tries to promote worthy activities in the school, encour- 
age a respect for scholarship, and foster individual growth. Each year finds it 
branching out into more channels of usefulness and contributing more and more to 
the welfare of the school.

The publications staff always trys to keep abreast 
of the times, so when recent trends toward stream- 
lined make-up became evident, the style of Pine 
Whispers was changed. Following closely the modes 
of large dailies, the headlines of the publication were 
reduced and set flush at the left. 

But work on Pine Whispers is not all work, for it 
has its pleasant side, too. The journalism students 
have good times together, and many lasting friend- 
ships are formed in the journalism room. Then there 
is always the Southern press convention at Washing- 
ton and Lee University at Lexington, Virginia. In ad- 
dition to practical instruction there is lots of fun 
packed into those four glorious days. 

There are several reporters who deserve special 
recognition for their work during the past year. As 
usual, the girls out-number the boys. Here they are:

In the fall the staff started looking around for some- 
thing new in annuals, for last year's was definitely 
out of date. They wanted it bigger and better — quan- 
tity plus- quality — so that's the way they made the 
1939 Black and Gold. 

It wasn't as easy as that, though. First of all, a 
theme had to be decided upon and the book planned 
just as it was to be when finished. Next, styles of 
make-up had to be decided upon. 

Then came the problem of snapshots. The book 
was supposed to be informal; therefore informal shots 
were needed. The "Bills" were pressed into service 
with their cameras and light meters and other para- 
phernalia which seemed necessary for pictures with 
a candid camera. 

There were long consultations with Frederick El- 
rick, head of the print shop, to see whether the brain- 
storms of the staff were practical. April was set as 
the deadline, and the staff spent many hurried hours 
trying to meet the time limit. 

You are now reading the 1939 Black and Gold. 
The entire staff sincerely hopes you like it!

BUSINESS STAFF — "As busy as bees" — the members of this staff hustle about town 
in pursuit of prospective advertisers. And, in case you didn't know, they help 
greatly in supporting the publications. 

OFFICE PAGES— "At your beck and call"— the office "hounds" dog your trail with 
messages or dart in and out rooms making announcements. They are absolutely 
indispensible in the office, and school wouldn't be school without that old familiar 
phrase, "Wanted in the office." 

USHERS CLUB — "Service with a smile. " — They're the boys who seat you behind 
the lady with the umbrellistic hat. They do other things than "meet in the back of 
the auditorium." They usher at plays, concerts, and graduation exercises. Only 
seniors of a required average are eligible for the club.. 


the Occupations Club studies vocations from all walks of life and the Readers 
Digest Club digests the most interesting articles from all magazines. 

METRIC SCIENCE CLUB— "A pound of feathers is heavier than a pound of gold" 
— at least that's what they tell us. Anyway, they experiment and study to find the 
more interesting and unusual facts of science. Membership is open only to excep- 
tionally good science students in their junior or senior years. 

COLLEGE CLUB— No, they're not working their way through college — the club is 
a group of senior girls, organized to study various colleges that interest them. Dur- 
ing the last term they have considered new vocational fields for women.

The Band at Reynolds High is an important school activity. Members are promoted 
to the "A" band from the lower bands according to ability and industry. The band 
plays at chapel programs throughout the year, often renders civic services, and 
parades and exhibits letter formations at football games. During the past year they 
played at the Duke- Wake Forest game, the dedication of the new stadium, at the 
Carolina-V. P. I. game at Chapel Hill, and at the post-season game between Mora- 
vian and Appalachian State College here. They also played and marched in several 
parades in the city. Annually it enters the State Music Contest at Greensboro both 
in the group and individual divisions. Several members represented the Reynolds Band 
in the All-State Band, composed of the ablest members chosen from schools through- 
out the state. There are approximately 50 musicians in the "A" band. Every year the 
"A" band is seriously handicapped by the loss of senior members; however it con- 
tinues to be one of the outstanding music organizations of the state. Joseph T. Pfohl 
is conductor. 


ABBITT AND DOBSON ETIQUETTE CLUBS— The "do's" and "don't's" of 
etiquette are brought out in the programs presented in their club periods on Thurs- 
day mornings. These clubs are composed of freshmen and sophomore students. 

REYNOLDS HI PLAYERS— "In this business of playmaking they make play out of 
work" — Among their accomplishments for this year were the presentation of "Skid- 
ding", a three-act play, in the fall and the sponsoring of Dramatic Night, three one- 
act plays presented by the three upper classes, in the spring. The over-whelming 
achievement of the season was the original play, "Shirt-Tail Boy", by W, P. Cov- 
ington III, which was produced by the Reynolds Hi Players and won three first 
prizes in the state-wide Playwriting Contest and Drama Festival held at Chapel 


LATIN AND FRENCH CLUBS— "Latin is a dead, dead language," but this club un- 
earths the more unearthly habits of that much read-about race; but it would be a 
"faux pas" not to mention that the French Club has a lively time learning interest- 
ing facts about a modern language. 

HOWELL AND SNIPES ETIQUETTE CLUBS- It ain't whatcha do, it's the way 

howcha do it!" — The etiquette clubs teach the right thing to do at the right time in 
problems interesting to high school students. 



': ~ 

LIBRARY STAFF — "They always get your book." — These library assistants are 
always ready, willing, and able to give any information or assistance needed. Mem- 
bership is open only to those specially invited by the librarians. 

TRAVEL AND STAMP CLUBS— "Around the world in forty minutes".— The 
would-be travelers satisfy the gipsy in their souls through speakers, pamphlets, 
and daydreams. Through its hobby the Stamp Club reaches the most secluded 
spots of the globe. 

"p's" and "q's" and minding the peas and beans are not very far removed for 
"etiquette begins at home." The Home Economics Club is open to honor students 
in this department.

O. HENRY AND CREATIVE WRITING CLUBS-' Some read writers and some 
write readers" in these sister groups. The O. Henry Club studies the works of 
"the master of surprise endings" while the Creative Writing Club strives to develop 
its own talents in all phases of the literarv arts. 

GIRL RESERVES — "Girls in white" — they wear white for purity with a touch of 
blue for knowledge. Following their slogan and purpose, "To face life squarely" 
and "To find and give the best," they back worthy school projects and start ones 
of their own.

PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB— "Watch the birdie!"— but sinse the candid camera craze 
has swept our school any candid camera-ite might be found hanging from the 
rafters or lurking behind lamp-posts to catch us at our worst. Thanks to this group 
for putting life and action into our annual. These portraits of the club members 
were taken by Bill Hill and Bill Wallace, who are Photography Editors for the 
Black and Gold. 

BOOSTERS CLUB — "That we may boast, they boost" — Boosters are the backbone 
of our school spirit. They arouse our enthusiasm in all projects such as athletics, 
club activities, and school entertainments. In their weekly meetings the boosters 
discuss ways and means of improving the school in every way.

JUNIOR HI-Y— "Clean speech, clean habits, clean sports, and clean scholarship" — 
It is through these means that the club strives "to create, maintain, and extend 
throughout the school and community high standards of Christain character." The 
main requirement for membership in the club is character. This division of the Hi-Y 
club is in its fourth year of existence. 

FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE HI-Y CLUBS-The alphabet has the bold "u " 
and egotistical "i". but what does it have over Reynolds, for Reynolds has the 
"Hi-Y"! These boys compose a club which does much to uphold the ideals of the 


VOICE CLASSES — "Sing, Sing" without stripes but with bars. The voice class 
makes no "bad notes" but is imprisoned in a love for music. This group has enter- 
tained the student body with several enjoyable chapel programs and the radio 
audience has had the apportunity to hear and appreciate their frequent musical 
broadcasts. For several years they have entered successfully the state music con- 

MONOGRAM CLUB — In mathematics it's the kilogram; in biology it's the diaphram; 
and in athletics it's the monogram! They're the boys that "bring home the bacon" 
on the athletic field. The monogram represents outstanding work on sports. 
































The publication of this book marks another step in the path of 
progress of the "Black and Golds" through the years that they 
have commemorated the work and play and aspirations of Win- 
ston-Salem High School students. 

Not only is this annual — the eighth to be completely set and 
printed by the High School Print Shop — the largest yet produced, 
but it is different. The format and display of the pages is in a differ- 
ent mood and a different mode. It has gone modern. The contents 
of the book likewise follow this new course. The extent and char- 
acter of the informal pictures is one of the most noticeable and com- 
mendable changes the book has seen in years. 

But new ideas present new problems, and the new larger pages 
and bled-edge cuts involved increasing difficulties and much more 
particular work than ever before. How well or how poorly we 
have succeeded in this, we will let everyone judge for himself from 
his copy of the book. 

We are sure of this — that the mechanical production of the book 
would have been a much greater task, and much less successful, 
had it not been for a high degree of cordial and interested co- 
operation on the part of the various journalism and business staffs 
and the photo-engravers. 

Every student in printing had his job to perform in one or more 
of the many operations necessary to the production of each of the 
2100 books. Eugene Blue was responsible for most of the page 
make-up and a good part of the Linotype composition and press 
feeding. Bill Cranfill and J. R. Gentry also did considerable ma- 
chine composition. Lee Ernst, Delmont Cranfill, Talmage Davis, 
and Charles Gibson set many of the ads, and helped with much of 
the bindery work. Harry Whitaker, Richard Johnston, and Ben 
Hunter worked on press as well as at folding and other work. All 
those students not specifically mentioned are to be commended for 
their faithful work hour after hour and day after day. 

Mr. Arnold McCall of the Winston Printing Co. was secured 
for the cylinder press makeready only. All other operations were 
performed by students and instructor.

THURSDAY MORNING MUSIC CLUB- Music casts a magic spell over Rey- 
nolds High students, and the Thursday Music Club proves it since it is the largest 
club in the school, having approximately 250 members. The club, sponsored by Miss 
Virginia Buckles, has as its usual program the "community sing" idea. Sometimes 
the more talented members participate individually. Often, too, they discuss current 
events in the music world, especially local events. The club was first organized in 
the fall of this year. Its popularity shows an increasing interest in a more extensive 
musical program. 


Ole King Cole was a merry old soul 
And a merry old soul was he; 

'Cause he backed all the games 
And cheered every goal 

And he yelled and he clapped with glee. 



FOOTBALL — Brisk winds, peanuts, excitement, glamour! power play by Brewer, 
end sweeps by Barbee! And the line: all trumps with nine aces — Trivette, Page, 
Carr Smith, Maynor, Jake Freed, Keenan, Seawell, Thomas, Sherrill! Coaches 
Redmond, Smith, Shealy. Greensboro! All-state talk! 1938; remember? 

BASKETBALL— Recipe: Materials— Mangum, McManus, Sherrill, Cale, Haltiwan- 
ger, Coach Frank Shealy: gym floor with basketball and baskets. Run men briskly 
until well warmed, mix vigorously with opponents, and flavor with packed stands, 
yells, referees, whistles, and paddle pops. Result: thrills and chills.

GOLF — Again, to fairways, greens, tees, sand traps, and woodlands go another Rey- 
nolds golf team, led by DeWitt Nunn, George Montague, Bahnson Gray, William 
McKenzie, and coached by Mr. Marvin Ward.

Twas the night before exams, 

when all through each note 
Bill Jones was a stirring, 

to see what he wrote, 
The books were arranged 

with no thought of care, 
In hopes that a brainstorm 

soon would be there; 
The rest of the family went 

right off to bed, 
While visions of honors 

danced through Bill's head; 
He rubbed and dusted 

his old thinking cap, 
And roused his brain 

from a long winter's nap; 
What a late hour 

for such a big clatter — 
All in Bill's head 

is undeveloped matter. 
But it's hard to grasp 

knowledge all in a flash, 
So much of his work 

will go out with the trash. 
More rapid than eagles 

the questions they came, 
And he moaned and groaned 

as looked up a name; 
The time slipped away 

as wild hurricanes fly, 
He still tried to think 

as the stars left the sky, 
He looked like a wreck 

from his head to his foot — 
All scattered around him 

were stubs, ashes, and soot, 
He was grouchy and cross — 

not a jolly old elf— 
And I laughed when I saw him, 

in spite of myself. 
He got ready for school 

with a flirt and a jerk, 
He spake not a word, 

but went straight to his work 
He wrote down a little, 

then turned up his nose 
Gave a disgusted look, 

and up he arose. 
But I heard him exclaim, 

ere he went out of sight, 
"You can't grasp knowledge 

all in one night!''

Fashion must aid in your appearance if it 
to do something useful for you. 

It is no longer a matter of playing around with an ei&hth 
of an inch on the lapel or some other detail that performs 
no special service or makes no noticeable difference in ap- 
pearance. Fashion must make a man look taller or slimmer 
or improve his appearance, and make him more comfortable.

Thousands of them and yet more, 

Fill the sky at night; 
Even when the moon shines forth, 

They twinkle just as bright. 

Like some majestic city, 

Astir with fairy light, 
The sky seems filled with magic, 

That enchants the sky at night. 

But when it's time for dawn to come, 
And when the darkness fades, 

The stars slip out— far out of sight, 
And then the sun invades.

The Name CHATHAM Is A Guarantee Of Quality 



REMINDERS— By Reddy Kilowatt 

The inventive genius of man has made it possible for me to 
perform all sorts of household tasks as well as industrial 

My job in the home a good many years ago was simply 
to furnish light — and it was glaring, un-diffused light at that. 
Today I do all sorts of jobs — operate your radio, cook your 
food, refrigerate your food, sweep your floors, wash and iron 
your clothes, keep you cool, curl your hair, light your cigarette, 
and perform a host of other tasks. 

And I do all these jobs so cheaply that I can literally say:

We sit for hours with tousled hair, 
Our feet propped on a chair. 
We wonder why we can never think, 
Building castles in the air. 

We stamp our feet and groan again 

For original ideas, never used, 

And all this work for you, dear 

Only to be abused. 

If we can force you to one big laugh, 
Or just a word of praise, 
We'll be willing to try again, 
By toiling many days. 

All the jokes are old and musty; 
Nothing we find is new. 
Most all of them are old-fashioned. 
Even some of you. 

A poem is too hard to write 
And wastes your time. 
If you don't believe it, you just try 
To put your thoughts in rime. 

There's nothing else we can do; 

Originality is what we need. 

We know success makes a fool seem 

So we're working to succeed. 

Marjorie Reavis 


I wish that I could never see 
Another book until next year 

Nor hear the mention of a fee 

But roam the world witnout a fear. 

I wish that I could sit along 
Without a thought of lessons 

Or be afraid my answers are wrong 
And fear to answer questions. 

I wish that I could take a rest 
Without a hundred things to do 

And out of life receive the best 
With all my dreams come true 

For next school year will bring more 

With problems harder yet 
I need a rest without a bore. 

Then I should not even fret.

By Jane Cannon, Reynolds 
"Land Ho!" 

As the Adventure Galley, topped 
by the black and white Joliy Roger, 
neared Madagascar, Captain Wil- 
liam Kidd came on deck to view for 
the first time the isle of his dreams — 
his dreams of gold. How many times 
had he seen this very coast on his 
treasured map! How many times, his 
men gathered around him, had he 
traced the trail to the buried temple! 
Here he saw Madagascar before him, 
gold somewhere on its 288,000 
square miles and within his grasp. 

They sailed up the coast and, be- 
cause of Madagascar's many rocks 
and lagoons, dropped anchor be- 
tween the mainland and St. Marie, 
an island on the east coast. Carry- 
ing a supply of provisions, they row- 
ed to the mainland. 

The crew scrambled out, half ran, 
half swam from boats to shore. They 
shouted with joy, ran, swam, bathed 
in the beauty of the land, in their 
thoughts of gold. Captain Kidd, who, 
in 1696, was approaching middle age, 
sent his men to explore the coast 

Tall palms and ebony trees bor- 
dered the coast, with a belt of fifteen 
or twenty miles of dense forest be- 
yond. The men had found the ravi- 
nala, or traveler's tree, from which 
they were drinking the refreshing 
liquid of its fruit, as they would later 
of the cocoanut, which grew further 
inland. Before him he saw the moun- 
tains, through which the setting sun 
cast its gloriously golden rays. 
* + + * 

Golden rays, indeed! In sooth, 
gold itself! There it lay, buried deep 
in the temple of Nosse, itself buried 
by lava of volcanoes long since dead. 

"Gold!" Gathered around the 
knobbed trunks, wild with joy, the 
men ran their fingers through it, 
danced around it, and in their joy 
seemed oblivious of all the beauty of 
the temple — its carved idols, ivory 
water vessels, and other relics of 

They had traveled seventy-five 
miles inland, dug two days in the 
temple, and now they must carry the 
treasure back. 

With only the first part of it out 
of the temple yet, the men had stop- 
ped to rest and refresh themselves 
from the ravinala's fruit.

The ground, still slighty soft from 
the season's rain, held their foot- 
prints, out of the temple and back 
again, as a clay molding holds its 

A splashing from the river caused 
them to turn. They peered cautiously 
at the river from behind the trees. 
Lumbering leisurely out of the water 
were four or five pale green croco- 

"Strike my colors!'' cried the ex- 
cited Captain Kidd. Gathering 
around him, the men saw — a foot- 
print! In the silence of awe that fol- 
lowed, they heard the faraway beat 
of native tom-toms. Already some 
seventy-five miles inland and worn 
with their hardships of travel, tired 
from their days of digging, the men 
look toward their captain for ad- 
vice — what were they to do? Armed 
to the teeth, they yet seemed weak 
before a tribe of native warriors. 

The numerous birds overhead sud- 
denly flocked together and seemed 
to cast an ominous cloud over the 
men. It was an ill omen, a foresha- 
dowing of bad luck. What were they 
to do? 

While they pondered, soft foot- 
steps padded in the forest and white 
eyes gleamed from ebony faces. 

Suddenly finding themselves sur- 
rounded by native figures that seem- 
ed to have melted from black fo- 
rest, the men were quick to draw 
but found it futile. A hasty glance at 
the crocodiles proved that there was 
no escape from the river. 

There they were, surrounded by 
the dreaded Hovas, ruling tribe of 
the Malagasy. They fought despera- 
tely for their lives, but were over- 
come at last. They huddled together 
and talked in low tones. 

Struck by spears and motioned 
forward, they slowly ascended the 
path up the mountain. Over swing- 
ing native bridges, through dense 
tropical jungles, past resting lizards 
and chameleons, they were led to the 
Hovas main village, almost hidden at 
the foot of a large mountain. A large 
clearing was directly in front of what 
appeared to be the chief's abode. He 
himself was resting under an oddly 
fashioned umbrella before his adobe 

Not a word had been spoken by 
the natives during the trip, but upon

arrival at the village, orders were 
suddenly flung here and there in a 
Malayan language, foreign to all the 

Scakes, set at even intervals, were 
designated for each one, and each 
was carried to his stake by two 
strong black Hovas. One freed him- 
self, but no sooner had he done so 
than twice as many more were upon 
him and he was bound, like the 
others, by the narrow but strong for- 
est vines. 

All through the night preparations 
were made for them, and around 
midnight, when the fire was brigh- 
test and hottest, the war dance be- 
gan. Everyone took part, from the 
oldest veteran to the youngest child. 

Bells on knees emphasized the 
crackling of the flames, and stamping 
feet were heedless of the hot sparks 
thrown from the fire. 

The men, growing desperate, their 
hair and clothing signed from the 
outskirts of the fire, watched the 
dance with dilated eyes and fast bea- 
ting hearts. 

Their gold taken from them, cap- 
tured by natives, and ready to be 
burned, there seemed no hope for 

"Billy! Time to come in." 

"O. K., Mom." 

The children threw aside their pa- 
per hats, drew the Jolly Roger from 
the pole over the tub, and went in 
to eat their supper and later to dream 
of their golden treasure.

The king was in his counting house 
Counting out his money 
The queen was in the parlor 
Eating bread and honey. 
Doesn't she care about her figure? 

A man was standing under a bridge 
It crashed down on his head 
"Death was caused by fallen arches,' 
The coroner's jury said. 

It makes one sick to repeat 
The line, "I'm back on my feet" 
Meaning, not of sickly clues, 
But lack of half-soled shoes.

And the girl who lost her basket, 

And I musn't forget Ferdinand and

She told them to "swing it" and 
"beat it out" 

Or, for their bread they would sure-

So The Whirling Dervish grabbed

And they started doing the Suzy Q. 

They sang for their supper and 
danced for it too 

Until they wore out the old lady's 


Nature as I see it 

Is such a lovely sight, 

So full of breathless splendor, 

So appealing in my sight. 

It means so very much

In a secret rendevous. 

It's then I notice many things 
I've never seen before, 
And I'm left a constant longing, 
To go back in search for more.
