A PSALM OF LIFE
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream ! —
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.
Life is real ! Life is earnest !
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.
Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each to-morrow
Finds us farther than to-day.
Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.
In the world's broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle !
Be a hero in the strife !
Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant!
Let the dead Past bury its dead !
Act, --act in the living Present!
Heart within, and God o'erhead !
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time;
Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.
Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.

Many things have meant much to us during our high school days. Among these is the
thoughtfulness and helpfulness of one of our teachers. To us, the students, she has been a
faithful friend, advisor, and one to whom we could always turn for guidance.
She began teaching at Burgaw in 1946. Since then, as math teacher, she has opened the
doors into a fascinating world of numbers, figures, and shapes to every student who has-
graduated from the Burgaw School.
As a Senior home room teacher she has constantly helped and encouraged us in the
various phases of Senior activities.
Not only the Seniors, but the entire student body, have been influenced by her unself-
ishness, thoughtfulness and willingness to help.
As advisor to the Future Teachers of America Club, she has given assistance, constantly
reassured us of our purpose, and occasionally, reminded us to keep order .
Her active work on the BEACON staff has given us a school paper that we are very proud
of. Among other things, she has been heard urging the members of the staff to "get those
write-ups in on the deadlines".
Because of these and many other reasons, we therefore dedicate the 1961 WAGRUBto

From early morning when the flag is
raised until the afternoon when it is taken
down, Burgaw School is a busy hive of ac-
tion, with each student doing his share to
make life different and interesting.
The Honorable Graham Barden, our
representative in Washington, presented the
school with a new fifty-star flag this year
and a special presentation and flag raising
ceremony was held.
Everyone's goal all through high school
is to receive a diploma. When the Seniors
had their first experience trying on their
gowns, they realized how close they were to
reaching this goal. The Juniors looked with
envy at the Senior class rings, but they know
that their turn is coming soon.
Study halls, those quiet work centers (!),
provide an opportunity for catching up on
last minute work before going to class . The
library provides many good books to read,
research books, and magazines and period-
icals for relaxing moments.
A very important room in our school is
the lunchroom. Around fourth period (and
even before) thoughts stray from Physics to
food, and from icosahedrons to ice cream.
The section of the front wall tradition-
ally reserved for couples is usually well oc-
cupied, if not at times crowded. Like they
say, "In the spring a young man's fancy turns
to .... "
Several clubs have initiation programs
each year. The Beta Club initiation and the
F.H.A. initiation provide added amusements
and also let us see our classmates in a com-
pletely new light !
Another annual event is the day that all
geometry students design their Easter hats.
With everyone in his finery, geometry sud-
denly becomes fun !
Fashions play an important part in
school life. This year's biggest fashion news
was circle pins and London fog jackets . But
just so we'd really know what was "chick,"
the F.H.A. girls gave a fashion show featur-
ing slip-over-sweaters, boat necks, car
coats, balloon dresses, an afternoon tea
dress, and many more.
During Easter weekend both the Senior
and Junior classes went to Washington. To
raise money for the trip they had many mon-
ey making schemes and fund raising drives.
Among these were rumage sales, bake sales,
bar-b-que suppers, a womanless wedding,
candy sales, a New Year's Eve party, and
others. Washington will never be the same
The elementary grades have their share
of experiences too. We in high school aren't
as fortunate as to have a rest period in the
afternoons like these first graders.
On picture taking day big sisters are in
complete command of the situation. Act-
ing under last minute instructions from Mo-
ther, she straightens her little sister's hair
for that big moment when the photographer
would snap her picture.
Each room in school is on a cleanup de-
tail at least one week of the year. Usually,
with everyone doing his share it doesn't take
long. Anyway, just think! we missed 15
minutes of class time !
Sports play a big part in school life at
Burgaw. Four of our football boys ended up
in the hospital- -three of them at the same
time ! The three sports . . . football, bas-
ketball, and baseball . .provide an extra
curricular activity for the athletic, and en-
tertainment for spectators.
Everyone is always glad to get news of
a party. The New Year's Eve dance, spon-
sored by the Juniors, was especially suc-
cessful. Other parties during the year were
held after football games and in classrooms
on special occasions. Of course, the high-
light of the year is always the Junior-Senior
Banquet and Prom. This year was no ex-
ception and everyone "had a BALL!"
Life at Burgaw School is usually busy,
varied, and interesting, as you can see from
these small glimpses of our activities.

THE CLIMAX - GRADUATION
The year 1957-58 was a beginning for us. We were Freshmen starting the long hike to the top.
As we look back now it wasn't such a long hike after all. It seems as if the years have flown by. There
were eighty-six of us then. Our class officers were Twylah Smith, Gail Ward, Gwen Bryant, Samuel
Casey, and Annette Powers.
As Sophomores we were well broken-in when it came to high school life. Our number decreased
to sixty-nine. Our class officers were Susan Kessler, Louis Leimone, Louis Sawyer, Needham Hall,
and Frank Futch.
Our Junior year brought us even closer to our goal— graduation. Our class officers were Kay
Whisnant, Samuel Casey, Ruth Lewis, Bob Lewis, and Kent Carter. Although there were only fifty-
five of us, we were well represented in the sports review. Eugene Jordan, Bert Yates, Joel Barden,
Ardrey Murray, Needham Hall, Donald Wells, Samuel Casey, Bob Lewis, and Kent Carter were on the
football team. Frank Futch, Bob Lewis, Louis Leimone, Joel Barden, Ardrey Murray, Susan Kessler,
Sherria Herring, Kay Bowen, Faith Murray, Beveret Saunders, and Frances Wells participated in the
basketball games. Our cheerleaders were Annette Powers, Pat Davis, Kay Bowen, Phoebe Lanier, and
Ruth Lewis. Most of us worked hard to make the Junior -Senior a success. The theme was "A Southern
Now as Seniors of '61 we are reaching our climax— graduation. The first excitement of our Senior
year was receiving our class rings. Again we are looking forward to the Junior-Senior, but this time
we'll let the Juniors do all the work. There are fifty-four of us now. Our class officers are Samuel
Casey, Bob Lewis, Eugene Jordan, Louis Sawyer, and Susan Kessler. We have been well represented
in sports in the past, and this year is no exception.
. Now our thoughts are reaching out to grasp higher and better ideals. These four years have been
unforgettable. We shall always remember our Alma Mater, and years from now we shall look back
with "thanks" in our hearts. Now our present goal is to hear the familiar strains of "Pomp and Cir-
cumstance". This year it will be played for us — the Senior class of 1961 ....

BURGAW RED DEVILS -
Bin-saw' s football season began with the kickoff of the game against Elizabeth. After that the
Burgaw boys never quit fighting until the season was over. For some of the boys the last game was a

others it was only a beginning with the promise of more action next year. Members of the I960 Foot-

Many of us do not realize the responsibility that our bus drivers have. They bring us safely to
school in the mornings and then see that we return safely home in the afternoons--often without our
thanks for their service to us.

to (left to right) Pear lie Watkins, James Graham Rivenbark, Wade Burton, Bevret Saunders, Joe Bry-

The Marshals are seen in action mostly at the Senior Play and at Graduation. Their duties in-
clude distributing programs and ushering.
The Marshals are chosen at the end of the Junior year, according to scholastic average from all
previous years in high school. The one having the highest scholastic average becomes the Chief Mar-
shal. The Chief Marshal this year is Bessie Wells.

PLACE: Shakalotta, Hawaii,
What a coincidence for two old classmates to meet on their vacation to
the same destination, Hawaii, our fiftieth state. Having arrived there, we
decided to look up some old acquaintances together.
Oddly enough, we found that a great majority of our classmates lived
ina small coast town called Shakalotta, of which Samuel Casey is the mayor.
We decided to take a tour of the business and shopping district, going
through such shops and businesses as the Lanier's Clothing Shop, operated
by Selma Lanier, which specializes in the sale of the bikini bathing suit
with Phoebe Lanier as the head model for the store; and the Chadwick and
Watkin's soap factory (associated makers of a new soap called "Lanier").
This part of town appeared to be the Lanier section of town, with Hazel
Lanier even patrolling the traffic. Other businesses were Whisnant, Wells,
Warters, and Brand . . poi makers; and Donald Wells and Frank Futch's
Hardware and "side interests."
While touring Main Street, we ran across Ardrey Murray (Pineapple
grower) who asked us about Louis Leimoneand Wade Burton. We told him
that they were still doing well in the chicken business, trying to originate
a new formula for producing more eggs.
Unfortunately, while we were immersed in our conversation with Ar-
drey, we stepped into the path of Needham Hall's '75 Ford, which was do-
ing 60 m.p.h. down Main Street. We asked Ardrey to call a doctor. The
doctor's wife (the former Miss Ruth Lewis) answered the phone and advised
us to see Bert Yates, the bone surgeon. Upon examination, Dr. Yates said
that our injuries were only in the mind and advised us to see Patsy Meeks,
psychiatrist, who prescribed an evening of relaxation.
So we went to see Shakalotta's famous hula dancers . . Sandra Pope,
Jayne Corbett, Bonnie Haynie,and others . . we especially enjoyed Bonnie's
version of the new hit "Shakalotta in Shakalotta," although Sandra appeared
to be the best.
Watching the show were Mr. and Mrs. Kent Carter (the former Annette
Powers) and Eugene Jordan. Of course, the action wouldn't be complete
without Navy boys. Mentionable were Roger Flynn, Franklin Worrell, James
Rivenbark, and Ensign Ruddell. Let's hope that Mrs. Ruddell (the former
Glenda Sellers) doesn't hear about this. We almost forgot to mention how
J. B. Croom could beat those bongos !
After the Hula and the opera, where world famous soprano Pat Davis
was singing, we noticed reporters Kay Bowen, Susan Kessler, Martha Mur-
ray, and Sherria Herring covering the action.
It was the following morning that we got wind of the coming election.
Faith Murray, State Senator Barden's fiancee, told us that Senator Barden
was running for governor on the Barden ticket, but that he had five distin-
guished opponents: Carroll Pearsall and Bob Lewis, both running on the
Temperance ticket; Dan Wells, on the Associated Pineapple Growers tick-
et; Buck Bloodworth, running on the endorsement of the Association for the
Advancement of Bloodworths; and Nick Vdovich, running on the ticket for
the Advancement of the Democratic Mule. Incidentally, he has a bill going
which will permanently shelter all mules and send all elephants back to
Being rather tired after making an all-round tour, we went to see one
of Shakalotta's beaches, overgrown by beautiful palm trees.
There we found Bevret Saunders performing her daily exercise by run-
ning up and down the beach with a beach ball in her hand in preparation for
her ski performance. She was always alert and active.
Ah, but the vacation is now over. We take one last look at Shakalotta
and then board our plane, where we find stewardesses Cora Lee Meadows,
Robbie Powell, Karen Wootenand Patsy Croom. The pilot, incidentally, is
Bessie Wells; we always said she could do anything.
Other passengers were fashion designers Louise Sumner, Gwenn Bry-
ant, Wilma Lanier, and Twylah Smith. We were indignant when they told
us that our clothes, were out of style, as were Hawaiian vacations; so our
little journey had a bitter end.
