FOREWORD 

The world stands out on either side 
No wider than the heart is wide; 
Above the world is stretched the sky,- 
No higher than the soul is high. 
The heart can push the sea and land 
Farther away on either hand; 
The soul can split the sky in two, 
And let the face of God shine through. 
-Edna St. Vincent Millay

A song, a song of gladness, 
A song of praise and cheer, 
We sing with hearts rejoicing 
To our Alma Mater dear. 
With hearts so true and loyal, 
Our highest tributes bring; 
To you we' 11 e' er be faithful, 
To you we' 11 always sing. 

Oh, may our Alma Mater ever, 
In culture, pow 1 r, and might, 
Move on in every feature, 
Of the honor we know right. 
And may the love that binds us 
Protect what e'er we do, 
While thoughts always noble 
Inspire and keep us true. 

Chorus: 

Alma Mater, we love thee; 

Our hearts are sincere and true. 

Alma Mater, we love thee 

With a love, a love that is ever ne\ 

Your ideals that we cherish, 

Inspire us to heights unknown, 

Alma Mater, we love thee, 

We go on and on and on. 

-Dorothy Turlington

Wednesday, August 20, 1958! We were in high school at last. We numbered eighty -two. 
Our class officers were Johnny Westbrook, Mary Emma Blanchard, Lucille Balcombe, Mary 
Ann Jonkheer, and Christine Leimone. Our class had officers in every club and organization 
in which freshmen could participate. We took pride also in the fact that our class was well 
represented in all three sports. As a grandfinaleto our freshman year in high school, our 
class boarded the new activity bus one day in the latter part of April and headed for Raleigh. 
On May 19, 1959, our freshman year came to a close, and three months of long-awaited sum- 
mer vacation began. 

In August we returned to our Alma Mater as sophomores. We chose Joe Bryant Newkirk, 
Hugh Highsmith, Wilma Lee Wright, Johnny Westbrook and Julia Mallard to lead our class. 
Again this year our class was well represented in the sports field. Members of our class on 
the football squad were Johnny Westbrook, Joe Bryant Newkirk, Hugh Highsmith, Boyd Benson, 
Wayne McLendon, David Powers, Alan Jordan, Richard Collins, and Bill George. Sophomores 
on the boys' basketball squad were Hugh Highsmith, Joe Bryant Newkirk, Johnny Westbrook, 
and Wayne McLendon; on the girls' basketball squad were Wilma Lee Wright, Christine 
Leimone, Ruth Batson, Kay Haynie, Judy Futch, Susie Young, Joyce Herring, and Yvonne 
Rivenbark. Thus in May of 1960, we completed the first half of our high school career. 

We began our junior year with fifty -six members in our class. Elected to lead us this 
year were Wayne McLendon, Johnny Westbrook, Mary Emma Blanchard, Joe Bryant Newkirk,

HISTORY 



and Lucille Balcombe. We used a western theme for our Junior -Senior Banquet and Prom, 
which we all enjoyed very much. As a result of several months of hard work and cooperative 
effort on the part of the members of the class, we were able to spend a glorious week-end in 
Washington, D. C. The class raised the necessary funds for this trip by having numerous 
bake sales, a rummage sale, a barbecue supper, and various other projects. This trip was 
the highlight of our junior year and a dream come true. 

Then came our senior year --our last year as a part of Burgaw High School. Elected as 
our officers were Hugh Highsmith, Joe Bryant Newkirk, Mary Emma Blanchard, Judy Futch, 
and Julia Mallard. Our Homecoming Queen was Nora Walton with Patsy Deal as her Maid- 
of -Honor and Alice Mozingo as Senior Representative. On October 31, our class was deeply 
saddened by the loss of one of our class members, Elna Kaye Best, who was killed in an 
automobile accident. Our senior representatives on the cheering squad were Mary Emma 
Blanchard, Patsy Deal, and Joanna Thomson. We are looking forward to the Junior -Senior, 
the senior play, and then the biggest event of all --graduation! And thus ends our four years 
at Burgaw High School. We had laid the foundation. What lies ahead?

STUDENT LIFE 



From beginning to end, our school year 
hasbeenpackedwith activity. Football sea- 
son began with the start of school. The team 
showed great improvement and lots of spirit 
under the new coach. Homecoming festivi- 
ties got under way with a giant bonfire and 
pep rally, followed by the parade and motor- 
cade. At the big game with Chadbourn, Nora 
Walton was crowned Homecoming queen and 
Patsy Deal, maid of honor. The season end- 
ed with a banquet honoring the team and 
cheerleaders featuring Clyde Walker, coach 
at Needham Broughton High School in 
Raleigh, as guest speaker. 

A highlight for the seniors was getting 
their class rings. All the underclassmen 
envyed and admired them. 

The Future Homemakers of America had 
their annual initiation day and Mother- 
Daughter Banquet. Poor initiates -they 
practically supplied the high school with 
candy that day. 



Christmas would never be complete 
without the Glee Club concert, and this year 
was no exception. The music was superb. 
The end of vacation brought exams and study - 
ing-even during activity period! 

With the start of second semester, bas- 
ketball became the vogue. The teams could 
play only on Friday and Saturday nights, so 
everyone went to the games and cheered. 
The girls won first place in the county; the 
boys, third. In addition to the varsity teams, 
each class had intramural teams which play- 
ed during activity period. Participants and 
spectators "had a blast."

At last the lockers came, giving us a 
place to keep books and coats. It seemed as 
if they would never come, but they did. 

With the coming of spring, the ice cream 
store became even more popular. It was 
moved to a new room, and its old quarters 
turned into a classroom to be used next year 
when Long Creek High School consolidates 
with Burgaw. 

Almost all of the clubs and classes had 
projects to raise money. The seniors sold 
magazines, hemp belts, tickets to the P. T. 
A. barbeque, and "gator pegs"; and had a 
rummage sale. The juniors washed cars 
and sold magazines. The sophomores and 
freshmen sold magazines. The Latin Club, 
the Beta Club, and the cheerleaders each had 
bake sales. The Beta Club also had a bar- 
beque supper. Sounds like a rich school, 
doesn't it? 



STUDENT LIFE 



The Junior-Senior banquet andprom with 
the theme "South Pacific" was a big hit. 
Everyone enjoyed the Senior Play, TIGER 
HOUSE. All Beta Club members remember 
the good times at the convention in Raleigh. 

The end of May brings graduation for the 
seniors and promotion for everyone else. 
There are three long months of summer va- 
cation ahead. Hasn't it been a wonderful 
year to look back on?

for the above reasons, now leave the country.

CLASS PROPHECY 



TIME: 1980 



PLACE: Planet Earth 



Hil Here we are at the airport in Las Angeles, 
California. I am Carolyn Tokoly, secretary to Joe 
Bryant Newkirk, world famous comedian. We are on 
our way to Venus where Joe Bryant is scheduled for a 
performance in a few days. With us is his publicity 
agent, Mary Emma Blanchard. We are all rather ex- 
cited because this is our first trip into outer space. 
We are to travel in one of our newest and fastest rock- 
ets. 

We have heard that a lot of our classmates, the 
"twistin" class of '62, are now living in Venus; there- 
fore, we plan to see them before we return to Earth. 

We have to hurry now; they are calling the passen- 
gers to the rocket. As we near the rocket we are sur- 
prised to see that the stewardess is Barbara Price, a 
member of our class. She helps us get settled and we 
are soon on our way. After a few hours, our excite- 
ment and nervousness is not so great, and we begin to 
look around at the other passengers. We find that 
traveling with us are Edwin Pierce and his band. He 
says that he is playing at the Space-Beat, which hap- 
pens to be the same place where Joe Bryant will soon 
entertain. We tell him of our plan to look up our class- 
mates and he says that one of them is in his band; 
Johnny Westbrook, his saxaphone player. At this time 
we see Johnny coming toward us from another part of 
the rocket. He says that he has been exploring the 
rocket and has found that our pilots are Charles Wells 
and Allen Croom. 

A few hours later Barbara helps us prepare for 
landing. At last, we are on Venus. We step from the 
rocket and get our first view of Venus. We have at 
last proved with our own eyes that there are no little 
green men living here. We are surprised and pleased 
to see a very modern city. 

We immediately establish ourselves at the Hotel 
Starlight, owned by Miss Deanna Meadows and Sue 
Wooten. While resting from the trip we glance through 
a newspaper. We notice that it is owned by Susie Young. 
Her editor is Johnny Paluck. At this time Lucille 
Balcombe enters the hotel lobby. We greet her eager- 
ly. She says she is searching for society news be- 
cause she is society editor of Susie's newspaper. We 
ask if she knows of any of our classmates living here. 
She says that Catherine (Kitty) Rivenbark and Mrs. 
James Casteen, the former Betty Brown, are happily 
married and living near her. She also says if we read 
a little more of the newspaper we will see another 
familiar name. We look on the next page and see 
Christine Leimone's advice column. This does not 
surprise us because she was another Ann Landers 
while still in high school. 

The next day we planned to explore the city. We 
decided Main Street was a good place to start. The 
first store we see is the Joanna Shop. We go in and 
find our old friend Joanna Thomson. We are pleased 
to find that she is now Mrs. Boyd Benson. She tells us 
that Boyd has a men's clothing store right next door. 
We leave her and continue down the street. We then 
see a Lanier's Beauty Shop and stop in to see Pauline 
Lanier. She welcomes us while styling some of the 
newest space-age hairdos. As we leave the beauty shop 
the sound of music leads us to the doors of a dancing 
studio. We wander inside and soon find that the danc- 
ing instructors are Mary B. Narron and Kay Haynie. 
They are presently teaching the latest dance sensation, 
the "cosmic hop." 



We stop at the Johnson & Johnson Tea Room for 
lunch and of course find Jonnette Johnson and Glenda 
Johnson. Their waitress are Katie Rae Carter and 
Kathy Moore. We comment on the good food and are 
told that Carrie Rowe and Joan Wooten are the cooks. 

As we leave the tea room we see a large modern 
school across the street. Since the children are out 
to lunch recess we decided to look for the teachers and 
see if we know any of them. We are surprised to find 
so many of our friends. Sherrie Sherman is teaching 
the first grade. Judy Futch is teaching math; Julia 
Mallard, home economics; Patsy Deal, English; and 
Carol Winborne is the piano teacher. Anita Marsh- 
burn is the school librarian and she tells us that her 
sister, Faye Marshburn, is the librarian at the city 
library. Ruth Batson and Joyce (Sam) Herring are 
physical education teachers, and David Powers is jan- 
itor and friend of all the students. Wayne McLendon 
is the principal of the school and his wife, the former 
Alice Mozingo, is his secretary. While talking with 
the teachers we learn that our senior class president, 
Hugh Highsmith, has recently been elected president 
of Venus, and tonight a party is being given in his hon- 
or and we are all invited. 

When we leave the school, we continue our tour 
and stop at the hospital. As we enter the quiet cor- 
ridors, we hear the intercom calling a Dr. Wooten. 
We stop a group of nurses, who are Nellie Vdovich, 
Yvonne Rivenbark, and Nora Walton, and they tell us 
that this doctor is our old classmate, Jerry Wooten. 

We are now on our way to the party. We want to 
get there early so that we can speak to the guest of 
honor before the crowds get to him. The caterers have 
just arrived. Their boss is Richard Collins. He says 
it's the best way to get to aU the big parties. Working 
for him are Stoney McCoy and Gary Foy. His bartend- 
er is Jimmy Spender. 

At the party we see Bill George, who is a morti- 
cian. We are glad to see him but will not promise to 
give him any business while we are here. We find that 
Johnny Kraynick has become a stock car driver and he 
says that to keep in good physical condition he goes to 
Alex Meeks's Gym. 

This is the night that Joe Bryant is to perform at 
the night club, Space-Beat. As we enter the night club, 
the owner comes to greet us personally. He is Bradford 
Rowe. He leads us to a choice table. While sitting , 
there before the show Janet Blake and Patsy Flynn en- 
ter and cause quite a stir in the audience. Both are 
quite well known. Janet as an authoress and Patsy as 
a model. 

We leave for the planet Earth immediately after the 
show. We buy our tickets from Hilda Meadows and 
check our luggage withPearlie Watkins. Our steward- 
ess on the way back is Gayle Powers. 

We arrive home safe and sound. We enjoyed our 
trip to Venus and the renewal of our old friendships, 
but we are glad to be home.
