From the students of the three Winston-Salem high schools comes a hearty thank- 
you to the School Board for the sincere, sympathetic direction and advice which they 
have given to the problems which confront the city schools. Eight well-known citi- 
zens compose the Winston-Salem School Board of which B. S. Womble is Chairman. 
Serving with him are Mrs. W. L. Wharton, N. Mitchell, E. F. Tullock, C. E. Elber- 
son, J. W. Moore, Superintendent of Winston-Salem Schools, J. H. Brunt Sr and 
Dr. W. H. Sprunt, Jr. 





Quite in keeping with the trends of the time, the Black and Gold staff of the 
three high schools decided to build this year's annual around one big word 
— "Americanism". Breaking this term down into its fundamentals, the staff 
found that they had three separate and distinct themes, yet all were one. 
Reynolds High, believing Freedom to be an integral part of American life, 
chose to form its section around the symbol of freedom, the Statue of Lib- 
erty with its burning torch. Since education is a form of aspiration, Hanes 
High selected the wings of the American eagle to symbolize strength and 
soaring into new heights. Prompted by the beauty of American tolerance and 
music, Gray High devoted its portion of the book to Harmony. 

In this, the thirtieth volume of the Black and Gold, we have attempted 
to tie our local activities into the higher meaning of Americanism.

Reynolds High School stands for enlightened free- 
dom ^r the people that comes through the torch of 
truth held aloft by the people for the benefit of the 
people. Through education liberty's torch is fash- 
ioned to shine with a light that is free from heat. 

Dedicated to 

Mrs. Mary Sterling Swain 

Without Mrs. Swain, who would guide, direct, and foster 
the high school publications? Who would do so much to 
bring about desired improvements in all phases of our 

She has added to our years at Reynolds through her undy- 
ing interest in our happiness and growth. Her earnestness of 
purpose and tireless work have set before us an example 
worthy of following. 

In partial expression of our gratitude, we, the senior 
class of 1941, dedicate our Black and Gold to Mrs. Mary 
Sterling Swain.

Helen Sharpe, Historian 

In January of 1937 a group of bewildered boys and 
girls arrived at the doors of R. J. Reynolds High 
School, the majority coming from Wiley and Ardmore. 
In our seventh year grammar school we thought we 
had enough knowledge so that we could feel superior 
to the other students, but when we became members 
of Reynolds we found that we didn't know quite so 
much and that the other students looked down on us 
and delighted in calling us "freshie." Julian Pfaff was 
president of the freshman class. The last half of our 
freshman year we took over our first school position 
as a member of the Student Council. This honor went 
to Julia Stokes. 

In our sophomore year we felt better because we 
could treat the freshmen as we had been treated. Still 
we had three more years of hard work before we 
could really feel superior. We were represented on the 
Council this year by Joe Jones. 

During our junior year we felt splendid. We spon- 
sored the Junior-Senior dance which was held in the 
High School gym. It was a big success. The gym was 
decorated in the Senior class colors, red and white. 
Shirley Smith and his orchestra furnished the music. 
Our officers for this year were the following: presid- 
ent, Buff Tilley; vice-president, Helen Sharpe; sec- 
retary and treasurer, Dorothy Johnson. Our booster 
and House members were Betty Sims, Martha Sue 
Kelman, and Mary Southern. We were represented on 
the Council by Ann Long. Another laurel was added 
to our honor when Bob Haire won the declamation 

By the time we were seniors the majority of the 
class had decided to stay over at least another semes- 
ter. This brought the number to twenty-eight who 
made up our senior home room. Even though this 
group is small compared to other years, we have taken 
our place as leaders in various school activities. 

During the first semester of our senior year Wilbur 
Davis was cheerleader. The second semester we fur- 
nished the co-captains of the football team, John Pope 
and Donald Page, and three other members of the 
team, Julian Pfaff, Bob Haire, and Bill Hutchins. Hugh 
Walton was selected as the most valuable member of 
the Children's Home football team. Bobby Templeton 
has taken part in the Children's Home football, basket- 
ball, and baseball activities. This year Bob Haire is 
vice-president of the Boys' Monogram club. 

Marion Everhart has led our class in scholastic hon- 
ors. She was admitted into the Honor Society this 
year and was our "A" average student. 

Our class didn't participate in numbers in dramatics 
but in spite of this we were ably represented by Bob 

Our House of Representatives member was Julian 
Pfaff, who has been a member of the House for three 
years. Martha Sue Kelman represented us on the 
Council. Jane Alspaugh was our most inspiring boos-

Marian Everhcart, Prophet 

The year is 1945. The place is a radio broadcasting 
station in which we see Scott Buzzard, noted news 
commentator and man-about-town, waiting for the "on 
the air" signal. When the control man gives him the 
signal, we hear him say: 

"Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, this is your 
man-about-town, Scott Buzzard, with interesting infor- 
mation about important people. 

"Flash!" "Broadway Melody of 1945" has just been 
released. The romance is furnished by Bob Haire and 
Dorothy Rumley, while new song hits, written by 
Jane Alspaugh and Ben Thompson, are introduced by 
Julian Pfaff and Wella Mae Gough. 

"Bill Hutchins, Donald Page, and Bobby Temple- 
ton, members of the 1945 Ail-American football team, 
attended a banquet held in their honor on the Marine 
Roof of the Robert E. Lee Hotel last night. Bill Hut- 
chins was accompanied by Sara Barnes, that viva- 
cious blond (no fooling!) we've heard so much about. 
The others were accompanied by lovely brunettes,

"Flash! Miss North Carolina of 1945 has just been 
selected. The lovely little mannequin is Mary South- 
ern, a native of Winston-Salem and a graduate of the 
Richard J. Reynolds High School. Among the judges 
were Talmadge Stevens, Billy Tate, and Hugh Wal- 
ton, all of Winston-Salem and the same high school. 
Can you wonder why she was chosen? Runner-up to 
Miss Southern was Virginia Johnston. Miss Johnston 
is also a resident of Winston-Salem, and formerly with 
a public typing company. 

"Wilbur Davis, one-time usher at the Colonial 
Theatre, is now the manager. Mr. Davis states that he 
intends to remodel and make other badly needed alter- 
ations. He is now planning a contest to give the 
theatre a new name. Assisting him in this contest is 
Miss Helen Sharpe, his personal secretary and book- 
keeper of the theatre, 

"Among those graduating nurses of the City Memo- 
rial Hospital, we find the distinguished names of two 
girls who were graduated from the Richard J. Rey- 
nolds High School five years ago: Ethel Safrit and 
Katherine Chitty. They were graduated from high 
school with high honors and now they have been 
graduated from another institute of learning with just 
as good a record. 

"My last bit of news is the outcome of the Indian- 
apolis Speedway Race. The winner for 1945 is Harry 
Boiling, the youngest person ever to receive this hon- 
or. Mr. Boiling was confident of winning, but carried 
his lucky coin as usual. 

"And so, until the next time, this is Scott Buzzard, 
bidding you good-night."

Edna Sprunt, Historian 

It was during the fall— September, 1937, to be ex- 
act — that we, the graduating class of 1941, first en- 
tered the unknown territory of High School. Although 
we were duly awed and impressed by the dark halls 
with the animal heads looming above us, we rallied 
round to select Charlie Frank Benbow to represent 
us on the Student Council. 

The next year, 1938, we felt we had attained great 
dignity because we had advanced to the rank of soph- 
omore — which being transalated means "wise fool". 
Our superiority was shown in our ability to make 
raucous noises and in being the terror of all teachers. 
Jack Clifford represented us on the Council while the 
Treasurer of the Student Body was Bob Warren. 

It was during our junior year that we first showed 
interest in the more important activities which the 
school offered. For our class officers we elected Betty 
Lou Patterson, president; David Carroll, vice presi- 
dent; Joe Mickey, secretary; and Billie Luck, treasurer. 
Being juniors, we were allowed to have two repre- 
sentatives on the Council: Mary Alice Neilson and 
Don Welborn. This year we struggled long and hard 
to make the Junior-Senior Dance, our one big event, 
a success. Soon after this, eight of the class's most 
promising girls served as Senior Marshals for the 
graduating class: Peggy Pollard, chief; Jane Frazier, 
Rachel Vickers, Marjorie Strauss, Lillian Dalton, 
Hazel Newman, Billie Luck, and Mary Miller Mc- 

When we glance back over this, our last lap, there 
seem to be many honors in the ranks of the high and 
mighty seniors. Joe Trollinger and Bill Whiteheart 
were President and Vice-President, respectively, of 
the Student Body, while Fulton Ferree and Dalton 
Clower were Speakers of the House of Representa- 
tives. Those outstanding in Journalism were Mary 
Alice Neilson, Musa Queensbury, Doris Canady, 
Mary Coons, Thad Tate and John Johnson; in ath- 
letics were Phil Brewer, Bill Whiteheart, Vincent 
Cale, Dalton Clower, Eddie Watson, and Wilson 
Vaughn for the boys and Carolyn Goodson, Kather- 
ine Fishel, Betty Simmons, and Doris (Rusty) Smith 
for the girls. Several of our members excelled in dra- 
matics: Ann Long, Billie Luck, Sara Ellen Joyce, and 
Richard Katzin. 

We gathered knowledge and prestige during the 
year and for our final officers elected Robert Halti- 
wanger, president; Roger Hendrix, vice president; 
Dot Shealy, secretary; and Bill Whiteheart, treasurer, 
while David Clay, Joe Mickey, and William Shore 
represented us on the Council. 

But the time has come when our fond farewell to 
dear old R. J. R. must be made. We are leaving with 
mingled regrets of happiness and sorrow for we will 
always hold pleasant memories of those past four 
years in our hearts. In a few days the reality of grad- 
uation will descend on us and we will no longer be 
students of Reynolds High School.

Ira B: Well of all things! Look what's in this month s 
issue of "Highlights in the News." 

Mary C: I can't imagine. What? 

Ira: A picture of Phil Brewer. He's a star halfback 
with the Chicago Bears now, you know. 

Mary: Look at this picture of George Sills and Ann 
Long receiving the Academy Award for their per- 
formances in last year's motion picture, "Toujours 
L'amour," written and directed by Richard Katzin. 

Ira: My goodness! Look at this! A picture of Billy 
Rhodes, the successor to Billy Rose, photographed 
with some of the beauties of his Glamor-cade: Dot 
Johnson, Vivian Reynolds, Rives Pollard, and Mary 

Mary: Look! There are Claire Martin, Catherine Ba- 
con, Nancy Nunn, and Nancy Rawlings, all models 
in Oscar Marvin's exclusive Fifth Avenue dress 

Ira: Did you know that Watt Martin is the Republi- 
can candidate for the presidency of the United 
States, and that Joe Ellerbe and Buxton Mickle are 
running for the office of president and vice-presi- 
dent respectively on the Communists' ticket? All of 
their pictures are on this page, and Joe Trollinger, 
president of the Six Foot Six Club, has his picture 
on the next page. Oh, but doesn't Sara Ellen Joyce 
make a very gracious first lady? 

Mary: We don't have much work to do this morning. 
Let's see how much we know about our Reynolds 
High classmates. Here's this lipstick. Bill Kallam of 
the Mickey Cosmetic Company invented it. It 
really won't come off. 

Ira: And in this year's edition of "Who's Who" there 
are several of our former classmates listed. Robert 
Haltiwanger is a professor of law at Yale Univer- 
sity, Harry Snavely is the foremost airplane design- 
er in the country, and Jane Maynor and Wilma 
Corley are listed among the tip-top artists of today. 

Mary: Do you realize that Jane Frazier, Norma 
Rhoades, Caroline Dowling, Betty Lou Manuel, and 
Virginia Brandon are all members of the Metropoli- 
tan Opera Company? Kenneth Smith wrote the 
opera in which they are appearing this season. 

Ira: I saw one of the Winston-Salem papers the other 
day. Bill Anderson had just been elected mayor, and 
there was an article about Vincent Cale on the 
sports page. After being an Ail-American basketball 
center at Elon, he became a coach there and is quite 
a good one, they say. There was also an article 
about Roger Hendrix competing in the U. S. Tenn- 
is Singles Tournament.

This class, composed of 132 students, are eagerly looking forward to becoming 
lOA's to give the Junior Senior. Mary Louise Smith was elected president at the 
beginning of the fall term. Other officers are Charles Blackburn, vice-president; 
Cecilia Goodson, secretary; and John Hoots, treasurer. Bunny Sprunt represents 
the class in the Council, and Miss Mary Howell is the class sponsor. 

This class has proved to be outstanding in various ways throughout the school. 
In regard to scholarship Mark Allen Boesser has led both school and class. Mark 
was also elected secretary of the House of Representatives. Alice Goldberg has 
proved to be very outstanding in debating, representing Reynolds High School at High 
Point in the triangular debate. She is also secretary of the Boosters Club and serves 
on the Pine Whispers staff along with a fellow classmate, Jerry Simpson. Other 
outstanding students are Ann Cobb, serving as president of the Junior Girl Reserves, 
and Jane McNair, as secretary. 

Last fall, although 9A's, they were permitted to attend the Junior-Senior dance. 
This was a special treat which is rarely given to anyone but juniors and seniors. 
Several of the girls became the "belles of the ball." 

Not only are scholarship and leadership possessed by these 10B students, but they 
take part and excel in sports. Many members have already made the varsity in some

The Reynolds High School Student Council is the main voice in the student govern- 
ment organization. Sponsoring the Lost and Found, promoting school activities, 
and maintaining discipline and orderly school grounds make the Council one of the 
most active student groups. Miss Mary Martin was appointed by the principal at 
the beginning of the second semester to succeed Miss Elizabeth Kapp at the end 
of her two-year term as faculty adviser. Marvin Ward, chosen by the Council, is 
the other sponsor.

In the fall "Pine Whispers" set as its goal the fol- 
lowing standards which represent the letters in its 
name: Promotion of school and club social activities, 
Improvement of chapel conduct, New uniforms for 
band, Encouragement of girls' intramural and varsity 
sports, Wholehearted support of the student govern- 
ment, High school swimming team, Increasing of school 
spirit, Separate graduation, Promotion of student 
chapel programs throughout the year, Enlargement of 
physical education courses, Red Cross membership, 
Sound equipment for motion pictures in auditorium. 
Although some of these were not realized to any great 
extent and a few not at all, the staff feels that it has 
aided the school by its new six-column, eight page 

At the annual S. I. P. A. convention last fall, "Pine 
Whispers" was commended for the fact that the three 
city high schools combined in its joint publication. An- 
other honor was given to the staff when Thad Tate 
won first place in the current events contest and John 
Johnson, second place.

Black And Gold 

From May to May. That is the story of the year- 
book. Just after the publications election last spring, 
the new editors began formulating impressive ideas 
with which to improve the 1941 Black and Gold. 
Summer gave three months for the ideas to crystal- 
lize and come down to earth. In the fall the first steps 
toward production were taken as the senior writeups 
were checked in and approved. 

Then came the all-important selection of a theme. 
Soon after Christmas holidays, work began in ear- 
nest, and with the deadline, April 4, in view the journa- 
lism room fairly bristled with rubber cement, glossy 
prints, layout sheets, and students frantically hunt- 
ing for patches. The staff worked with enthusiasm, 
for several big improvements long wished for had be- 
come a reality. There were to be three colors on the 
cover, two inside the book, more snapshots, uniform 
light background, formal pictures of the faculty, and 
altogether more pages. 

Much of the credit for the art work in the annual 
goes to Mary Coons, Art Editor, Doris Canady, Rich- 
ard Katzin, and Peggy Pollard. A freshman, Russell 
Shouse, was the faithful Snapshot Editor. 

Indeed, the whole staff cooperated to make this 
Black and Gold even surpass last year's, which won 
an Honor Award at the S. I. P. A. at Washington and

Publications Staff 

Business Staff— always on the job supporting the publications. Its duties are 
varied and include all business transactions of both Pine Whispers and the Black and 
Gold. L. W. Crowell is the faculty adviser of this organization which consists of 
fourteen students. 

Under the Pine Whispers division of the group, Mary Coons is business manager 
with assistants as follows: Sara Ellen Joyce, Virginia Whitaker, Billie Luck, Bill 
Anderson, Robert Parker, Ed Walker, and Kenneth Smith. Its duties include solicit- 
ing advertisements, collecting bills, securing ad copy, and distributing the paper to 
the advertisers. 

For the first time in its history, the Black and Gold business staff claims two man- 
agers: Edna Sprunt and Julia Stokes. They are assisted by Don Hines, Mary McLean, 
Ruth Anderson, and Frances Hendrix. This group's work is similiar to that of the 
paper including negotiating contracts and furnishing ideas for advertisements if the 
concern does not do so for itself. 

All members of the staff have to be good salesmen in order to interest prospective 
advertisers, and have to be good students in order to sacrifice a few classes to go 
on business trips to get the advertisements.

ness, enthusiastic attitude toward work, patience, tolerance, accuracy, pleasant per-

past year the following received awards: Doris Canady and Mary Spach, best-all- 
round; Betty Canady, second best-all-round; Mary Louise Tuttle, nearest perfect in 
conduct; Ramona Rodgers and Carolyn Ziglar, most improvement. Students receiving 
awards for most outstanding service, such as cutting stencils, making catalog cards, 
and mechanical duties, were John Johnson and David Fulton. The following staff 
assistants received honorable mention for very outstanding service: Sarah Jane White, 
Doris Sparks, Frances Dunning, Sophia Bowen, Hilda Folger, Beverly Newman, 
Elizabeth Ann Clinard, Patsy Smith, Evelyn Ziglar, Eloise Hege, Martha Sherrod, 
Betty Alspaugh, Mary Ann Cromer, Anne Davis, Martha Ann Poole, Dorothy Nich- 
olson, Wilma Barnett, Nancy Johnson, Katherine Jones, Mary Claire Walker, Vir- 
ginia Greer, Robert Means, Ernest Hardwicke, Hilda Nunn, June Thomasson. 

In addition to regular duties and completion of course in library work, the staff

western District Teachers, made posters for Vocational Guidance Week, and pre- 
pared the library for College Day. 

Officers are as follows: president, June Thomasson; vice-president, John Johnson; 
secretary, Doris Canady; treasurer, Peggy Jane Blum. Miss Ola Maye Nicholson 
and Miss Mae Kreeger are librarians.

The band of Reynolds High School, under the direction of Joseph T. Pfohl, is one 
of the school's most important activities. During the past year Maureen Black, Betsy 
Dalton, Mary Frances Lackey, and Geneva Moore were an added attraction of the 
band. The band is made up of 60 pieces, three standard bearers, three drum majors, 
and four majorettes. 

The band plays regularly throughout the year for chapel programs. In addition it 
parades, exhibits letter formations at football games, and renders civic service. During 
the past year it played for the Armistice Day Program, at the Halloween Celebration. 
The band was invited to be guest at several college games.

Vocational training is offered in the Print 
Shop of Reynolds High School in six branch- 
es of the printing trades. This is the only 
trade course offered at present in this school. 
With the exception of the instructional exer- 
cises the first semester, practically all the 
training is done in connection with actual jobs 
produced for the Winston-Salem Schools and 
other city departments. 

All competent students readily find em- 
ployment upon graduation. Eugene Blue, 
1940 graduate, is with the Sun Printing Co. 
Harry Whitaker, student last year, is now 
employed by the Penry-Aitchison Printing 
Co. Talmage Davis, who graduates in June, 
is already working at the Winston Printing 
Co. Nearly every shop in town has one or 
more employees who received some of their 
training in this shop. 

The new six column size "Pine Whispers" 
printed for the three high schools was just 
one of many jobs produced in the shop. The 
twenty-one hundred copies of this "Black and 
Gold" was the largest job printed during the 
year. With the exception of only the cylinder 
press makeready, all hand and machine com- 
position, presswork, folding, and other bind- 
ery work was done by the printing students 
and instructor. 

This job, even larger than the book last 
year, is one of the largest and most difficult 
projects ever to be undertaken by a regular 
school class in this community. Only a very 
few high school print shops throughout the 
entire country attempt to print their own 
school yearbook. 

Every student enrolled in the printing 
course worked on not one but several differ- 
ent printing operations necessary to the com- 
pletion of the book. Several students were 
employed after school on particular phases of 
the work that could not be completed during 
class time. 

Richard Johnston, Ben Hunter, and Gervice 
Fouts in particular should receive special 
mention for their long hours of faithful work 
on both "Pine Whispers" and this "Black 
and Gold." 

Pictures on these pages are all of students 
at work in the Print Shop. The photographs 
were taken by Robert Bradford.

Mr. Ray Weathers 

who has guided our aspirations not only into the realm 
of higher mathematics but into higher ideals of char- 
acter as well, we, the 1941 graduates of John W. 
Hanes High dedicate our section of the 
Black and Gold 



Our minds have been centered around defense during the 
past year, and this has been correct, especially right now in 
one of the most crucial periods of our history. Therefore, 
we, the faculty of the John W. Hanes High School have 
done, and will do, all we can to prepare the minds of our 
boys and girls for specific work that is needed by our nat- 
ion, to develop their bodies and health so that they will be 
able to stand the strain that may be placed upon them, and 
to inculcate in them the spirit of true democracy so strong 
that they too will be able to carry on along with all of us 
in the days that are to come.

Wounded in Action^Some of us — Domestic Damsels 


Dwight Kirby, Historian 

"Yes, and down there you see John W. Hanes High 
School." The pilot was talking and showing his pass- 
engers the place of the 1941 graduation. They were 
getting a bird's-eye view of what Hanes High is and of 

the work of the graduates that went there four years 

These cadets started on their flying course of learn- 
ing that they migh achieve someday their pilots li- 
cense. In their first, year cadets Bruce Campbell, 
Helen Stewart, Evelyn Hege, Louise Shoaf, Junior 
Edwards, Dwight Kirby, Francis Byrd, and Waldo 
Oehman, applied for learners, permit and registered 
for their courses. They stated on the funda 
mentals of learning and gradually they progressed; 
most of them on their ground course stuck to mechanics 
and others to navigation but all were destined to be- 
come pilots whether they were to be good ones or not. 
Their instruction was not so hard at first because 
their teachers knew they were green and inexperienced 
at the flying course of high school. The ground in- 
structors were Captains Flavella Stockton, Maude 
Hale, Roy Swaringen and many others. These instruc- 
tors were very lenient on them, but the students 
caught on fast to regulations. Everything progressed 
rather smoothly for them during those first two years 
with the exception of an occasional nosedive around 
exam time. 

About this time a new cadet joined the training 
corps to get his license along with the rest. It was Hugh 
Tomlinson, whose preliminary training had been re- 
ceived at Mineral Springs. Certain achievements by 

individual flyers also became noticeable about this 
time. In the field of athletics, Helen Stewart and Hugh 
Tomlinson soared above the rest when Hugh became 
football captain and Helen made the baseball and 
soccer teams. In other student pursuits, Dwight serv- 
ed as alderman during his second year and later claim- 
ed the honor of designing a flight emblem for the 
school flag. Bruce Campbell and Evelyn Hege were up 
in the East detail, ready at all times for trial flights, 
and most of the class were now ranked as first lieu- 
tenants. Before long they were trying out planes in 
tests and even doing some parachuting. A safe land- 
ing in the senior class in September, 19^0 put them in 
line for final honors in January. Officers elected at this 
time were: Evelyn Hege, president; Dwight Kirby, vice- 
president; Louise Shoaf, secretary, and Bruce Camp- 
bell, treasurer. The class "hopped off" in a body to the 
annual Junior-Senior reception given for them around 

After all this ground-training in fundamentals and 
details, the cadets were now ready to become senior 
flying officers. They had encountered many spins, 
loops, down-drafts, and air-pockets but were now rea- 
dy for their solo flight away from Hanes High and for 
full pilot's licenses. In short, it was graduation time 
at the training school. So after four years of appren- 
ticeship, they passed with propeller spinning and made 
a perfect three-point landing into new fields of en- 
deavor. Attention! Line up for graduation. Senior 
Pilots, Evelyn Hege, Dwight Kirby, Louise Shoaf, 
Bruce Campbell, Junior Edwards, Hugh Tomlinson, 
Waldo Oehman, Helen Stewart, and Francis Byrd.

The Bishop's Candlesticks-~"Tootsie"~ Sock it! 


Waldo Oehman, Prophet 

i 1 . 

I am cruising high above the earth in my new air- 
plane, and it is now January 1946 — exactly five years 
after my graduation from John W. Hanes High School. 
I think of my classmates and begin to wonder where 
they are and what they are doing. As I circle the 
outskirts of the city, I see an architectural studio, and 
a recently-perfected electric beam enables me to see 
inside as well as outside. Who should be there, busily 
working away, but Dwight Kirby, whose name has 
already become famous as a leader in his profession. 

Happy at having seen Dwight, I fly on till I next 
find myself peering into the office of an automobile 
factory where Louise Shoaf, another classmate, is 
working as a private secretary. And I know that luck 
alone did not get her this position, because I remember 
how well she always did her work in school. 

As I fly over the city, I next see a hospital, where 
much to my surprise, I discover Helen Stewart wait- 
ing on the patients. She also has made a success of 
her chosen profession. Bravo, Helen! 

But what do I see below me now? A small, neat 
house with a beautiful lawn encircling it and a flower 
garden in the rear. I drop a little lower and recognize 
Evelyn Hege busily at work among her flowers, but I 
don't recognize the tall man coming down the path to- 
ward her. He must be the man to whom she is happily 
married now. 

Further out in the country, I fly over a well-kept 
farm and Junior Edwards, who is diligently plowing 
away in his cornfield, stops long enough to wave his 
hat at me. I never expected Junior to become a farmer, 
but he is evidently making a go of it. 

And, right next to his farm lies another large tract 
of ground which has a sign on the gate reading 
"Campbell's Poultry Farm ". This is not surprising 
when I remember that even in high school, Bruce 
Campbell was interested in chicken-raising. 

Visibility becomes poor as it gets later, and, not 
being able to see much that is below me, I turn on the 
radio and recognize the first voice I hear as that be- 
longing to Francis Byrd. Sweet Pea Soap is sponsor- 
ing the great comedian on their daily broadcast since 
his clever jokes and skits made him rated among the 
number one comedians of stage, screen, and radio. 
I hear the program through, and it is followed im- 
mediately by a nation-wide football broadcast. The 
announcement of the line-ups reveals the fact that the 
all-American quarterback, Hugh Tomlinson, is a 
member of one of the teams, and he distinguishes him- 
self throughout the game. 

And that, I realize, completes the roll-call of my 
former classmates. Slowly I drop to the ground and 
make a three point landing. I am happy because I have 
seen them and am even happier still because I know 
that each is successful in his life work. 


Posture Plus— So What?— Just A Few Boosters 


Horace Barrett, Historian 

Since the idea of National Defense has been the 
paramount one which has been stressed during our 
senior year, we, the members of the class of 1941 rea- 
lize that when we entered high school in the year of 
1937 we were taking a definite step in that direction 
by training our individual minds and bodies to con- 
tribute to the future strength of our country. 

In 1937 we came from both North Elementary and 
Fairview schools into the seventh grade of what is 
now John W. Hanes High School, and the following 
year we started in on our freshman year. We can 
look back now and realize how much the faculty and 
student body have changed since we first came. We 
soon caught on to the plan of how our school was 
run — like that of a city government — and learned we 
had better walk the straight and narrow path if we 
wanted to stay out of "jail." Under the careful di- 
rection of Miss Dungan and Mr. Haltiwanger we 
went through sophomore year and became juniors. 

During this year we first began to see what our 
classmates really had in them, so to speak. Bill Nichol- 
son and Hilda Austin made the debating team. Martha 
Futrell and Peggy Lancaster became stars in the field 
of dramatics. E. S. Hall was elected mayor at the 
close of that year, and Hilda Austin received a Ser- 
vice Monogram. Marvin Parrish was awarded a simi- 
lar monogram this year for service to the school. We 
saw many of our classmates in the band and chorus, 
and they helped us to come out with flying colors in 
the state-wide music contests at Greensboro in '39 and 
'40. Both boys and girls showed up well in athletics, 

publications work, and various other activities. We 
also became the proud possessors of our class rings 
during this junior year 

When we returned in the fall of 1940 we saw a good 
football team perform for us in spite of the handicap 
of losing a number of players to the National Guard. 
The first break in school activities came when we got 
out a day for the County Fair which opened up within 
sight of the school in October. Then came the Junior- 
Senior dance held in the school gym just before Christ- 
mas where the decorations carried out the patriotic 
idea. We also began to see new faces in the faculty 
as Miss Baynes and Miss Kinlaw came to take the 
vacancies left by the marriage of Miss Smeltzer and 
Miss Spinks. 

Then came a period of studying for mid-term exams 
which came in spite of the valiant efforts of the 'flu to 
keep us all at home. Many seniors also decided to 
stay over for another year about this time, but those 
of us who were still firm in our intentions to graduate 
in June got to-gether and elected class officers as 
follows: President, Dick Helsabeck; Vice-pres. Zeno 
Groce; Secretary, Arline Miller, and Treasurer, Peggy 

This brings our school career up to its climax — the 
graduating exercises — and we turn our faces now in 
the direction of new success in new fields. With the 
hope, then, that we will be of great service as citizens 
of the community in which we live and the country in 
which we believe, we now leave the future of the class 
of 1941 in the hands of our class prophet.

Working Hard— and— Playing Hard 


Betty Penry, Prophet 

- '■ 1 


lt was a dark, cold morning as we left the house 
to report to the draft board to register for national 
defense. As all the young men and women of the June, 
1941, graduating class of Hanes High had become of 
age, they came today, Monday, Jan 21, 1946 to register 
for their service in the National Defense more as a 
patriotic duty than a necessity. 

A glittering, uniformed officer said, "As I call your 
name, step forward and report your occupation." 

The first one to step from the line was Horace Adams 
Who said he was a dispenser of gas in a filling station 
near Walkertown, N. C. Next was Hilda Austin, 
secretary to Miss Nancy Barnes, who is now Presi- 
dent of Vassar College. A man with a curled-up 
mustache reported that his name was Horace Barrett 
and that he was a millionaire banker and sportsman. 
Helen Bowles gave her occupation as a Salvation 
Army captain. Next was Roy Lee Boyles who was 
an inspector of beans in a bean factory. M. D. Bras- 
well reported that he was now a Baptist minister. 
Then came Arlene Brown who was dietition for the 
county prison, and Betty Jean Campbell, now coach 
of basketball at Ogburn Station High School. Charles 
Carper gave his occupation as assistant chief-of-police 
in N. Y. City. Next to report was the widow of a rich 
banker who had assumed her old name as Alberta 
Childress. Dorothy Clinard said that she was a wait- 
ress in a restaurant at Coney Island. We found that 
Miss Helen Cooke had just arrived from a trip abroad. 
Ruth Cook is hostess at the Waldorf-Astoria in New 
York and Dorothy Crater is a Spanish dancer. Fran- 

ces Danner was a model in Wannamakers' and Mabel 
Elledge gave her occupation as a seamstress. Just then 
Edythe Foster stepped forward and reported that she 
was a floorwalker for Kress 5 6 10 cent store. Martha 
Futrell has now reached her ambition as dean of a 
"Military School for Girls". Ruth Lee Greene is hair- 
dresser and manicurist at the "Youthful Beauty Salon". 
Answering to their names, Zeno Groce, E. S. Hall, 
and John Hall, who are now financiers of a "Club of 
Sports" for underprivileged boys, stepped from the 
line We next saw Nellie Hardister who now sells 
tickets for a local theater. Dick Helsabeck is now the 
tailor for Frank A. Stith's. Pearl Hendrix said that 
she now has a kindergarten class at home. Faith and 
Hope Hudspeth are running a bakery, and Dot John- 
son reported that she was competing in the finals of the 
Women's Hurdle-Jumping Tournament. Bill Johnson 
is now holding the lightweight boxers' championship 
title for N. C. Jack Kates announced that he was a 
book binder and Walter Knight that he was an elec- 
trician. Peggy Lancaster is hostess on an airplane that 
Frank Lancaster pilots. Iris Lewis is now starring in 
a cowgirl rodeo show. Jewell Linville reported that 
she was keyboard operator and Ruth Little is a lib- 
rarian. Who should step up next but James Long who 
is an Adviser to Lovelorn and Irma Lyerly who is a 
snake charmer. E. B. McBride answered to his name 
as a Philanthropist. To our surprise, we saw Lonnie 
McCulloh step out with a funny looking cap on which 
he said was his coal miners' cap and with still more

At a time when individual freedom is disappearing in many nations 
we should realize the obligation which is ours to maintain this privi- 
lege. Failure to appreciate our good fortune endangers this security. 
In order to deserve the heritage which is ours, we must show our 
appreciation by working for it rather than taking it for granted. 

— 119 — 

For her faithfulness, sincerity, willingness, and friendli- 
ness toward all, and her sympathetic nature in helping with 
our problems, we, the senior class of James A. Gray High, 
proudly dedicate our section of the BLACK AND GOLD 
to Miss Moselle Stephenson.

Flagwavers Wave Out Thrills at Reynolds and Gray Football Game 


Mae Jarvis 

Only a very few short years ago we entered South 
High School, as a group of forlorn and bedazzled 
freshmen. During this year we were scattered around 
in several different home rooms. Few of us had or- 
ganization jobs but we spent our time getting used to 
our new school. 

Our sophomore year was quite different. We were 
by then—very much at home in our school and some 
of us were even home room presidents, board mem- 
bers, and secretaries. Some were more fortunate and 
held organization jobs. 

After our freshman and sophomore years were left 
behind, we were gathered from the different rooms, in 
which we had been placed when we entered high 
school two years before, and were placed in an' or- 
ganized junior class with Mrs. Sam Robinson as our 
sponsor. As our leaders, we elected Mae Jarvis, presi- 
dent; John Hayes, vice president; Era Lee Teague, 
secretary; and Mickey Davis, treasurer. During this 
year, too, many of the members of our class became 
leaders in departments in the student organization. 

Then after collecting dues, advertising "Charlie's 
Aunt," which was the play we sponsored, and planning 
games and favors, we were hosts at the Junior-Senior 
at the Country Club. Another important happening 

this year was the changing of our school name from 
South High to James A. Gray High. 

At long last we became seniors. We had at last 
reached one of the goals toward which we had been 
working for ten years. This year our leaders were: 
Dot Darnelle, president; Campbell Hunter, vice-presi- 
dent; Ida Mae Haneline, secretary; and Mickey Davis, 
treasurer. Also that semester Donald Cook was head 
of the checking department and Mae Jarvis was 
secretary of the school. Most of the other members 
of our class held jobs on the various departments. The 
main social event of the year was the weiner roast 
held at Elledge's cabin just before the close of school. 

When we at last became llA's, we elected Mickey 
Davis, president; Jack Saylor, vice-president; Chris- 
tine Elledge, secretary; and Carrie Lee Snider, trea- 
surer. Two of our members, Jack Saylor and Alex 
Collins, were head of the Auditorium Department this 
year. Our two big social events were the Junior and 
Senior Party at the Reynolds Grill and our class party 
in the school cafeteria. 

And now that we have at last reached our goal, 
graduation, we are both glad and sorry— glad because 
we have obtained our goal and sorry because we are 
leaving the school where we have spent four happy

'Don't Take My Penny" 


Helen Beasley 

On a cold January day in 1950 I hurried into the 
home of Maxine Harvel. 

"Come right in, Helen," Maxine exclaimed. "You 
can never guess what I'm doing. I'm addressing cards 
to all the members of the '41 graduating class inform- 
ing them of the alumni meeting to be held next week." 

"How in the world do you find time for so many 
things?" I questioned. " I keep so busy practicing 
numbers for rehearsals with Lawrence Taylor's orch- 
estra that I don't have time for anything. It seems to 
me that you should be busy toasting hot dogs for Earl 
Stonestreet's "Get'em While They're Hot" hot dog 

"Well, you see, I promised Christine Elledge, secre- 
tary of the class, that I would address the cards for 
her.. She is posing for toothpaste ads and didn't have 
the time," explained Maxine. 

We settled down to addressing cards, and who 
should be first but the class sponsor, Mrs. Robinson. 
She still is teaching at Gray and wishing for another 
"gem" (?) like the January Class of '41. 

Our next card went to New York to Mickey Davis, 
the great air hostess, who is stationed there at the 
present time. 

To New York, also, went another card to James 
Ball, who is one of the greatest singers of the Metro- 
politan Opera Company 

"I bet James will be unable to attend, since he is 
such a great singer. I never thought he would be such a 
success, did you?" questioned Maxine. 

"No, I didn't," I answered. "We can send Carrie 
Lee Snyder's and Margaret Baynes' cards to the 
"Come, Let Us Make You Beautiful" beauty shop." 

"Yes, I know," said Maxine. "I went in there the 
other day and who did I meet but Mae Jarvis. She is 
now secretary for Donald Cook. Donald, you know, 
is a very prominent lawyer." 

"Caruso Miller is sole owner of the Miller 
Undertakers. We can send his card there," I said. 

To the Public Works went a card for Holland 
Anderson who is one of the city's leading garbage 

Era Lee Teague is now the best floor lady that S. H. 
Kress has ever had. 

Addressed to the Winston-Salem Day Nursery went 
one card to Claudia Simpson, the friend of the child- 

The city library received one card for Wanda Wel- 
born. Miss Kallam had trained her so well that she has 
received the title of the best librarian in the state. 

One card went to a young girl who has a perfect 
right to hold men's hands. At the Baptist Hospital I 
found Virginia Mabe, performing her duties. 

In the society page of the "Daily Inquirer," edited 
by Chester Copple, appeared the name of Edna Trout- 
man, who is to be married sometime in the near future. 

Johnny Glasgow, Noah Potts, and Robert Seagraves 
all have one-third interest in a poultry farm. 

To Chicago went cards to Jack Saylor and 
Alex Collins. Jack is now a great professor of danc- 
ing, and Alex is one of his most popular pupils. 

George Jarvis and George Peebles are now both 
trying to win the middle-weight title. 

Janedia Jeonard has found a way to use her grace- 
ful walk by modeling women's clothes in Wooten's 
(Rhober to us) Department Store- 
Margaret Andrews is one of the best performers in 
Billy Rose's show at the World's Fair. 

In our own home town we find Kathleen Elson and 
Lois Jones teaching young citizens that two and two 
equals eight. 

My, what an interesting evening we did have. It 
seemed as if we were already at the alumni meeting.

We all remember the changing of officers at Installation Services. 


Ruth Bowman 

We, the June graduating class of nineteen hundred 
and forty-one, entered South High School as insigni- 
ficant freshmen in the fall of 1937. 

As we look back over the short four years we have 
spent here, we realized that the many pleasant memo- 
ries of fun we've had will remain with us always. 

The day of registration we felt very proud and 
important. No longer were we to be led up and down 
the halls by a teacher who kept reminding us to tip- 
toe and keep our lips closed. But the very next morn- 
ing when we were looking for our various home rooms, 
most of us would have gladly given it all up to be 
back in knickers and long curls and to be led to the 
right place; because all the other students seemed to 
be so big. Later when we were settled and knew which 
steps we were to go up and which down, we weren't 
caught doing the wrong thing many times a day. Our 
most brilliant speller misspelled "nickle" in the Journal- 
Sentinel Spelling Match. Bill Pulliam was the assis- 
tant secretary of the school for the first semester. 

The next fall we entered school as sophomores 
with a very confident and superior feeling over the 
little tots we were just a year before. Three electives 
gave us a chance to study in the field that interested 
us. We struggled through ancient history, typing, and 
algebra with very little time for anything else. 

As juniors we were registered and went to our 
different home rooms in the fall of 1939. In this se- 
mester we changed the name of our school from South 
High School to James A. Gray High School. Many 
of us were now very active in the student organization, 
with a large number of us serving on the Board. 

Our faculty advisors were Miss Daisy Lee Glasgow 
and Mr. Ted Griffin. We elected as our class officers 
the following: president, G. B. Smith; vice-president, 
Hall Crews Miller; secretary, Margaret Hege; and 

treasurer, Vance Clodfelter. Bill Pulliam was vice- 
president of the school. We sponsored the play, "One 
Mad Night ", presented by the Dramateers, in order to 
help finance the Junior and Senior. 

The girls in their "formals" and the boys in their 
"Sunday best" entertained the seniors at a dance on 
May 4th in the school gymnasium. This was the first 
Junior and Senior held in the gym. We had an orch- 
estra, which also added to the feeling of festivity. 

When we registered in the fall of 1940 as HB's, 
we had grown so large that no room in the school 
was large enough for us; so we had to be divided into 
three different home rooms, with Miss Jeanne Bunch, 
Miss Virginia Garner, and Miss Daisy Lee Glasgow, 
our faculty advisors. We elected our senior officers 
for the entire year as follows; president, Hay- 
wood Brinegar; vice president, Vance Coldfelter; sec- 
retary, Bobbie Gilbert; and treasurer, Henry Thornton. 
We chose Margaret Hege as our D. A. R. Represent- 
ative. She was also secretary of the school for this 
semester. We really felt like full-fledged seniors when 
the January Class turned over the senior's seats in the 
auditorium and senior privileges to us. 

By January so many of us had fallen by the wayside 
that there were only 117 of us left to call ourselves 
seniors; therefore we were again put in one class. Our 
faculty advisors were now Miss Daisy Lee Glasgow, 
Mr. Ted Griffin, and Mr. Jimmy Bunn. We were very 
proud of Haywood Brinegar, who was president of 
the Hi-Y, and also president of the school. 

The junior class sponsored the play, "Don't Take 

My Penny", presented by the Dramateers, in order to 

finance the Junior-Senior Dance. They entertained us 

at a formal dance held at the Reynolds Grill May 9th.

Youth secures experience in preparation for the future 


Dorothy Darnelle 

Time: 1960 

"Say, Hazel, wouldn't you like to stop by my apart- 
ment with me and see the scrapbook I am going to 
present Gray from the Alumni Association?" 

"Thanks, Dot, but we will have to hurry— -my job 
as head nurse at Whitney Hospital keeps me pretty 
busy, you know." 

Misses Peddycord and Darnelle continue down the 
street. A parade is coming, so they pause to watch. 
"Isn't that Fairfax Highsmith and Vance Clodfelter 
in the band?" Hazel cries, "It is! They were in our 
graduating class of '41." Dot whips out her camera 
and after taking a few shots for her magazine they 
journey onward to the apartment where they seat 
themselves with the scrapbook entitled "Gray High 
Scrapbook of 1941" before them. They begin turning 
the pages: 

"Margaret Hege chosen for new star." The clip- 
ping states at length about the contest she won, en- 
titling her to a contract with the "Kemp Swaim 
Cuties," a part of the Eleanor Colvert Movie Com- 

"At the Martin (Broadus) Theatre, on Kellette 
Avenue (because of the famous author) where Norma 
Teague sells tickets and Doug Knouse is head usher, 
the broadway show "Hell-za-poppin" starring Thelma 
Seay and Jim Barbee surrounded by a cast including: 
Alice Mae Wooten, Ethel Burton, Odell Cardwell, 
Carolyn Clowers, Ed Dixon, Chloe Leazer, and 
Rachel March seems to have been quite a success. 
Others mentioned in the drama field of W. S. are: 
Henrietta Stout, Opal Walsh, Juanita Rule, Evelyn 
Lyon, and Mildred Moorefield. 

There is a clipping from the Social Page of the 
paper owned by Johnny Rayfield and David Han- 
cock giving an account of the huge ball held by 

Myrtle Braddock, fashion designer at the Money Ho- 
tel. Arrangements were handled by the famous society 
hostess, Bobbie Gilbert. Music was furnished by 
Henry Thornton and his Wildcats, including: Jimmy 
Teague, Carrol Craver, James Ervin, Charlie Hutch- 
ins, Homer Lynch, and Archel Smith featuring Charlie 
Noell and his trumpet. Vocalists were the Tonsil 
Twisters: Mildred Durie, Frances Bostick, Zelma 
Smith, and Amelia Gatewood. 

Upon looking at the guest list, they find many fa- 
miliar names: Ruth Bowman, of Bowman's Sub-Deb 
School; Judge John Hayes and Mrs. Hayes, the former 
Margaret Sharp; Lucy Seagraves, head of the Wins- 
ton-Salem Red Cross; Lawyer Alvin Davis; Dr. 
Vaughn, and his fiancee, Barbara Smith; Alec Spach, 
A. D. Stewart, Louis Wilson, all connected with Leo- 
ard-Crouch Tobacco Co. 

In another clipping they read the campaign speech 
of Haywood Brinegar which resulted in his becoming 
Mayor of Winston-Salem. Chief-of-police Bill Pulliam 
also had a speech on safety. 

Among the sports clippings they find a story about 
the state swimming champion, Mary Lois Hamlin; an 
article concerning the famous tennis stars: Richard 
Hege, William Livengood, Norma Martin, Donna 
Lee Sapp; and a story about the famous Fesperman- 
Reich Baseball Club managed by Grady Sink whose 
star players are Garland Wood and Bill Yokely. 

There is a group of comics drawn by Petree-Pack; 
a bed time story by Arlene Pilcher, novelist; a group 
of fashions by Conrad (Ann). 

On the next page is a group of models, photographed 
by Macy, Stamper and Foster (Gowns by Cham- 
berlin and Arnold). Among the models are: Trelvan

The Board of Directors is the steering group for the student organization, and its 
meetings serve as a clearing house for all home room-student body activities. It is 
made up of the four school officers, forty department superintendents, twenty-one 
home room representatives, and one representative from each organized group such 
as Hi-Y club, Public Speaking club, etc. The president of the student body presides at 
all meetings, and any group or individual member of Gray High may bring suggestions

We were the first senior class in 
the history of Gray High to have our 
graduation exercises in our own 

Now as we are leaving we feel 
much the same as Edgar A. Guest 
must have felt when he wrote the 
"Out of my troubles I have had 

here have come my richest friend- 
Kind hands have helped to bear my 

care, kind words have fallen on 

my ear; 
An' so I say when trouble comes, I 

know before the storm shall end, 
That I shall find my bit of care, has 

also brought to me a friend. " 



Mary Southern, poet 
Now we stand at life's fateful cross- 
That starts us on our unknown way, 
With eager hearts and untold future, 
We face the dawn of another day. 

We turn once more to look behind 

For the tall portals do we yearn. 
Tis time to say "Farewell dear 

For fate will grant us no return. 

Hark! We hear the future beckon, 
Our grade will be both long and 

But for thee, Oh Alma Mater, 
We shall strive 'til our work's com- 

Along life's highway we must travel. 
Each one in a different field, 
Still the words ring clear about us, 
"Strive — seek — find — but never

The gates of life are opening, 
Our high school days are o'er, 
Graduation soon will part us 
Our friends we'll see no more. 

With quickened pace and eager 

With words of courage and quick 

With heads held high we'll never 

But forward march with firm ambi- 

How many of us will reach our goal 
How many, too, reach endless fame 
Only Providence can tell the an- 
Only time reveals the name. 

Throughout this entire life's existence 
Many times our thoughts returning 
To these our most precious moments, 
'Neath Grays roof of valued learn- 

So be life long or be it short 
Forever may we always try 
To uphold high ideals and standards 
Taught to us in Gray High. 

Then when our steps are slow and 

Our heart beats near its destination 

With fondest dreams and recollect- 

Be this day of days, our graduation.

Happy School Days 

By Edna Raye Troutman 

Now our school days are through 

We have reached our journey's end. 

But we want each and everyone of 

To remember us as true friends. 
As time rushes on and years go by, 
We shall often think of the past 
Of memories of school that can 

never die, 
The happiest years that went too 

There are no words that can ever 

make clear, 
What we would like to say, 
About the past of each school year, 
That has so swiftly flown away. 
As we begin to travel life's highway, 
And start out all on our own 
We shall think of school days this 

way — 
The happiest we have ever known.

surprise we saw Garaldine Matthews 
who was an aviatrix. Next was Ar- 
line Miller who is heard over the ra- 
dio every day on the "Children's 
Hour" as a bedtime storyteller. Then 
Faith Miller reported that she was 
writing a comic strip that appeared 
in the evening paper. Arnold Myers 
and L. B. Myers are now operating 
a modern dairy-farm. Bill Nicholson 
and his associates. Bill Nifong and 
Mildred O'Neal, reported that they 
are having great success with their 
dancing studio; and Jack Owen said 
he was now assistant manager of the 
"Record", a weekly newspaper. Next 
was Marvin Parrish who said he 
owned a six-ring circus, and preform- 
ing with it is Charles Haney doing 
an acrobatic stunt. 

To my surprise, I heard Vivian 
Parrish telling the officer that she was 
leaving for Miami, Florida, in a week 
to compete in the National Amateur 
Golf Matches. Next was Jack Phil- 
lips and David Reich who are work- 
ing together successfully as clowns 
in Marvin's circus. Helen Scott is 
now a mole-remover and her office 
is next to Jimmy Shelton who is head 
of a company making syrup-of-figs. 
He has working for him as taster, 
Margaret Shelton. Stepping out from 
the line we saw Willie Shuler, whose 
face we at once recognized as the 
animal trainer for Marvin's circus. 
Hilda Simmons is vocalist with "Slick' ' 
Snipes and his orchestra. Next Bur- 
ton Snyder reported that he was a 
speedway driver and who should be 
his mechanic but Paul Stewart. We 
then saw Margie Taylor who had in- 
herited a match-factory from her 
uncle and had hired Joe Turner as 
manager. Margie Timmons is owner 
of a frog farm. Getting almost to the 
end of the line we saw Bill Wagoner 
who told the officer that he was a 
Justice of the Peace. Last but not 
least, came Dot Walker and Hilda 
White. They are now preforming in 
an aquacade at Miami. 

And so, one by one, the students 
of Hanes High's 1941 Graduating 
Class answered to their name on the 
roll call. Then we heard a sharp 
order. "Attention! Company dismiss-

Our class officers for this year are

Thad Tate, editor of Esquire. He 
told me about some of his fellow 
journalists. John Johnson is foreign 
correspondent for the New York 
Times. Musa Queensbury and 
Doris Canady are co-editors of a 
new cooking journal, sponsored 
by "Bahnson's Baking Powder." 
Jessie Lee Bennett's latest book, 
which has broken all sales records, 
is called "Hermit Izlar Steps Out." 

Mary: I heard about that, too. Did 
you know that Fulton Ferree is 
sports writer for "Thursday"? 

Ira: Yes, and Algine Neely is society 
editor for the "New York Times." 

Mary: Last night I was in Smith-

Delaney, the piccolo. Bettie Ann 
Knight received splendid applause 
when she sang "Gas Buggy Days" 
composed by Buff Tilley.

And all the trees don their very best 
The cherry tree, too, puts on her 

snow-white blossoms 
And adds new color to her winter

A Garden 
And here the garden lies in silent 

The walls of stone have tumbled into 

The lizard, green and slick, doth 

slowly creep 
Among the thick growth of the ivy 
Tall weeds have taken all the flowers' 

The rose and lily gone to come no 

The lonely shadow of the night em- 
This lovely garden of the days gone 


Evelyn Scholtes 
And here my row of pansies lifted 

Their tiny elfin faces washed with 

To view with timid peeps across the 

The frightened roar of Tiger-Lily 

Who started the day all wrong when 

Bumble Bee 
Crawled right into his gaping yawn.

An old, old house, a rocky garden 

And cobble stones, an iron-wrought-

Stone animals and sidewalks paved 

with bricks 
Still live to recollect their fate.

My heart is such a funny thing! 

It makes me laugh and cry, 

It makes me sigh and makes me sing, 

And how I wonder why! 

It skips along a sunny path, 

Then trips through dungeons dark 

It bears the brunt of pain and wrath, 

Oh, pity you, dear heart! 

It cannot last much longer though 

At such a rapid rate, 

Won't someone pick the pieces up 

And save it from its fate? 

Bertha Ferguson 


You pass my house each day I know, 
But still I cannot see, 
For I'm behind barred doors, and so 
Barred doors keep you from me. 
I cannot push the shutter back, 
Or call a gay hello, 
I only keep my love intact, 
And keep my heart aglow. 
I cannot lift the heavy latch, 
Nor find the precious key, 
I can't revive a burned out match — 
You've barred your heart from me. 
Bertha Ferguson 


I hid my love from you, 

That day you went away, 

I tucked it safe from view, 

And vowed I'd let it stay, 

I turned a little key. 

And locked a little door, 

I hid a "you" from me, 

And what an awful chore! 

Then just the other day 

I saw you pass along, 

I wanted to be gay; 

I wanted to be strong, 

I couldn't hide this tear; 

It trickled down my cheek, 

I think you saw it here, 

And that's what made you speak, 

Then quickly I ran up, 

And softly closed the door, 

And now it must stay shut 

A million years or more.

"My Own" "Amapola," 

As I sit in this "Blue Evening" 
"High on a Windy Hill," I am 
"Thinking of You." Oh, how I'd 
love to get "One Sweet Letter from 
You." "These Things You Left Me" 
aren't even half enough to remember 
you by. "It All Comes Back to Me 
Now," that day in May when I saw 
"You Walk by." "I Give You My 
Word" that "You Are My Sun- 
shine". I want "You" to be "No- 
body's Baby" but mine. "Don't 
Worry About Me" though, "There'll 
be Some Changes Made," because 
"I'm Getting Sentimental Over You." 
"Oh, Look at Me Now," I've got- 
ten along so far. "If I Didn't Care," 
I wouldn't feel as I do; but the way 
it is now, "I'll Never Smile Again." 
Oh, well, "Everything Happens to 
Me." I'm sure "You Forgot About 
Me," but I know "I Could Make 
You Care." "You'd be Surprised!" 

"Until Tomorrow" I'll be seeing 
you and if you ever should come to 
town, come to see me at "Number 
Ten Lullaby Lane" or else give me a 
ring at "Pennsylvania 6-5000." I hope 
that "I'll See You Again" so till 
then, "May I Never Love Again" 
"Because" "You Might Have Be- 
longed to Another." 

Anyway "Thanks for Everything" 

"Charlie" the Sailor 
P. S. Remember, "Because of You" 
I've traveled a "Lonesome Road."

One of the most interesting pro- 
jects undertaken during the school 
year was the experiment carried on 
in the science department under 
Miss Kathryn Emmart and Miss 
Flossie Martin, biology teachers. 

During January of this year a 
movie on nutrition was presented to 
the biology classes by the Winston- 
Salem Dairy Council. At the con- 
clusion of the movie, the represen- 
tatives of the council offered to do- 
nate four white rats for the experi- 
ments in nutrition. The offer was 
accepted and the rats were imme- 
diately sent over. 

The first thing to be done was the 
construction of cages for the rats. 
The rats were labeled A, B, C, and D, 
and an individual diet was selected 
for each. The purpose of the ex- 
periment was to determine the factor 
that milk plays in the growth of 

Rat A was selected for a diet of 
whole wheat bread and milk. Rat B 
was designated to receive a diet of 
whole wheat bread and water. An 
excellent diet of bread, fruit, vege- 
tables, meat, and milk was selected 
for Rat C. Rat D was given the 
poorest diet of all, consisting of 
bread, potatoes, and water, which 
is an example of the poor diet which 
many people have. 

Records have been kept all through 
the semester of the progress and 
growth of the rats. Rat A, with a 
good diet, grew rapidly, his weight 
increased, and his general condition 
became better. Rat B, in contrast, 
gained so little weight and became 
in such a poor condition that at the 
end of six weeks his diet was changed 
from water to milk. His condition 
improved rapidly until now he is 
about the same state as Rat A. 

Rats C and D were contrasted. 
Rat C weighed about 30 grams more 
than any other rat. Rat D has be- 
come so irritable now that it is prac- 
tically impossible to weigh him. 

As a result of the experiment, 
many students have been impressed 
by the need of a better diet and a 
greater interest in nutrition and pro- 
per eating. 

In our Varsity Shop we have opened a modern Shoe Department. In 
charge of the department you will find competent men of years' ex- 
perience. Mr. Clarence P. Hepler, with his associate, Mr. Harvey 
Mickey, are young men who enjoy serving college students. 

Also, in our Varsity Shop, which is on the second floor, you will 
find a nice assortment of Sport Coats, Sport Shirts, Slacks, and a multi- 
tude of things which will appeal to the young man.
