“Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.”
Entered ’20; Science Course; Hi-Y ’22.
George’s wisdom lingers all over his report
card in the eye-pleasing shape of E’s. Espe¬
cially does he shine in Physics. Although
generally rather quiet whenever a question
of weight arises he always has a suggestion
to offer and it is usually a good one. If he
continues in his present path, success awaits
him just around the corner.
“No farther seek his merits to disclose.”
Entered ’20 ; Latin Course ; Debating Society
’20 ; Senior Hi-Y ’24.
Council is a jolly good fellow. He has
taken life easy in high school, but, never¬
theless, he has gotten through. We hope
he will not find college any harder next year.
“Her voice was ever soft, gentle, and low
An exceilent thing in a woman.”
Entered ’20 ; Latin Course.
Beatrice is one of our demure, quiet mem¬
bers. She seldom speaks but is a hard worker
and well deserves her diploma.
“She’s not afraid to say her say, tho the
whole world be against her.”
Entered ’21 ; Science Course; Girls’ Athletic
Association ’22, ’23, ’24 ; Basket-ball Tourna¬
ment, ’22, ’23.
Imagine 11-B without “the little Bakers!”
It can’t be done ! For a year, Lucille and her
sister, Mary, have set the standard of intelli¬
gence for that notorious class. Fortunately,
Lucille has escaped the “chronic case of lazi¬
ness” and we are sure that her academic
knowledge will enlighten those with whom
she comes in contact next year.
“’Tis good will that makes intelligence.
Entered ’21 ; Girls’ Athletic Association
'21, ’22 ; Basket-ball Tournament *21, ’22 ;
President of class ’24.
Although she swipes her sisters’s rouge,
Mary gets her work honestly. Coming in a
year after her class, we find her being used
as a model of intelligence, and you probably
wouldn’t believe it, but she’s not a bit stuck
“The girl that loves and laughs must
sure do well.’’
Entered ’21; Science Course; Girls’ Club ’23.
Who wouldn’t love Loyce with her demure
ways and sweet nature? Loyce’s pleasing
temperament has won her many friends. We
wish there were more like her in our class.
CAREY H. BOSTIAN
“Comb down his hair; look, look!
it stands upright!”
Entered ’20; Latin Course; Member Hi-Y
’23 and ’24.
Carey is a puzzle. He is one of our smar¬
test, and yet professes not to be happy. Un¬
less appearances are deceiving, he isn’t in
love either. Maybe that explains his unhap¬
piness. Carey says he is going to be a med¬
ical missionary, but we think that he should
be a college professor.
“He’s always there with his words of cheer.”
Entered ’22; Science Course; Football ’22, ’23;
Business Manager of Echo ’22 ; Secretary and
Treasurer S. H. S. Letter Club ’24.
“A. B.” is a general favorite of all the
boys and girls who know him because of his
generous supply of jokes. And from a cer¬
tain Senior we find that he is an all-around
sport. The class is proud of his record in
football, and wishes him success in college.
HENRY P. BRANDIS
“Who does his task from day to day.
And meets whatever comes his way.”

’22, ’23 : President Hi-Y ’24 ; Marshal ’23 ;

“Henry Parker” is our star student. Al¬
though he is engaged in various school acti¬
vities, he never says. “I don’t know” on
class, and we envy him for his ability to make
the highest grades. Also, a Senior tells us
that he is a nice fellow to have dates with.
S. H. S. will be sorry to lose him next year,
but our loss will be some college’s gain.
ELMER E. BROWN
“Silence is golden.”
Entered ’20; Latin Course; Hi-Y ’22, ’23, ’24;
President ’22 ; Baseball ’24.
Although Elmer never has much to say,
he is a good student, and always has his
lessons prepared. We know he will have suc¬
cess in college because of his ability to keep
quiet and stick to things.
“Come and trip it as you go
On the light fantastic toe.”
Entered ’19; Latin Course: Debating Society
’20 ; Tennis Club ’21 ; Athletic Association
’20, ’23; Girls Club ’20, ’21. ’22, ’23’, ’24;
“Fritz” is the gayest of the gay. If there
is any prospect of a good time, she is sure
to be on hand. Anyone who saw “Clarence”
know tha,t “Fritp.” has dramatic ability,
which, if cultivated, will lead her to a career.
I. Z. CHRISTY
“A certain simplicity that makes
everyone her friend?”
Entered ’20 ; Science Course; Athletic Asso¬
ciation ; Class Tournament ’23.
I. Z. is the kind of a girl who works hard
when she works and plays hard when she
plays. She enters heartily into everything
she undertakes and must surely succeed in

“Has the bell rung?** “What time is it?’*
If we hear these questions, there is no doubt
as to who the questioner is.—Pauline, of
course. We don’t know whether it is her
fault or that of her Dodge, that she is often
late, but we love to see her merry smile as
she enters the room after the gong has rung.
Although Polly doesn’t care about studying,
shee is such a good sport, that we are sure,
she wilL make many friends in college next

Here’s a girl who mixes work with pleasure
and enjoys both. You can always count on
her to take part in everything. She's frank,
friendly, and a good sport. We know her
college life will be a success.
“Silence is more eloquent than words.**
Entered *20; Latin Course; Hi_Y ’24.
You rarely ever hear Herman say anything,
but that’s not because he hasn’t anything to
say. When he does speak it’s something:
worth listening to. Wherever he goes he is
sure to win friends, and he is certain to
make a success of whatever he does.
“Honest as Abe Lincoln but a whole
lot better looking.”
Entered ’20; Latin Course; Hi-Y '24.
Ray is a boy who stands for things. And
he’s not afraid to let other people know that
he does stand for them. He’s rather quiet
but he bears his share of the recitation well.
May he carry his ideals with him after he
has left High School.

Still the wonder grew.

Association ’20, ’21, ’22.
“Flellen” is clever and gets exempt from
all her exams. With her pensive looks one
would never imagine she is an emphatic be¬
liever in Woman Suffrage, but she is, so
we predict a successful career for her as a
“No padlocks, bolts, on bars can secure
A maiden so well as her own reserve.”
Entered ’20; Latin Course; Girls’ Athletic

Zela’s quiet nature has won her a place
in all our hearts. A happy future is cer¬

“Soixante” is not the biggest member of
the class but she most certainly cannot b

seems endless since she has a new one for
every occasion and unless she’s called down
she usually gets more attention than the

Nine o’clock! “Does anyone know if Ber¬
nice has come in yet?” “No’m, but don t
mark her absent—she’ll be here after while.”
And sure enough, in a short while Bernice
appears. However, this mark of tardiness in
no way signifies her mental ability for she
has always passed her work easily.
“Fashioned slenderly, young and fair
With blue eyes and golden hair.”
Entered ’21 ; Science Course.
Annie is a faithful friend of Millikan and
Gales’ Practical Physics as many of us are.
She’s a good pal and tries hard to please
everyone. (Pat included.)

of the soul.”

Elizabeth has been with us only two years,
but we feel as if she has always been one
of us. For som? reason she seems peculairly
interested in French. However this may be.

that Mary does. She is a good worker and
a good friend. She gives freely of her time
to all worthy causes. No one is more pop¬
ular than she.
“Haste makes waste.”
Entered ’20; Latin Course; Girls’ Club ’21,
’22, ’23, ’24 ; Athletic Association ’21, ’22.
If it wasn’t for Jennie’s Dodge or maybe
a Buick, she would never get to school and
lots of us would never get home to dinner.
Her knowledge is more or less mediocre, but
she gets by on her winning personality. Her
motto is “On to Chevy Chase!”, and though
she may not bring down the house, she’ll be
Gentle of speech, beneficent of mind.”
Entered ’20 ; Latin Course ; Girls’ Club ’20-’24 ;

If you want something put across give it
to “Krick.” She is always ready to do her

Ethel is inclined to be quiet on class, but
the boys of 11-B tell us that her quietness

Marshall ’23; “Clarence” ’24.
Whither thou goest, “Prince” will follow
because Bob says “Love me, love my dog.”
His favorite pastime (with the possible ex¬
ception of girls) is arguing, and he often sup¬
plements the text with his knowledge of the
Ku Klux Klan, or four C’s. Of course it is
understood that he is a shining light on
classes and that “Clarence” could not have
been the success that it was but for his

Charles is quite well known in High School
circles. If you go into 11-B and hear a
voice loudly protesting to the teacher about
most anything, especially Walt Harrell, you
may be sure it’s Charlie. He seems to thrive
on History and minstrels, for Charlie is a

“Silly,” our talkative member, is the
bright spot in the class. Her stream of con¬
versation, like Tennyson’s brook, flows on
forever. But talking is Lucille’s talent, and
when it comes to reciting, or “speaking
pieces,” she can’t be beat. She’s a good
sport and we love her dearly.
“I will speak, though hell itself should
gape and bid me hold my peace.”

When “Dave” speaks, the class looks for
the dictionary, as our minds are too shallow

As we hear this motion at a Class meeting,
we know it’s C. Stedman, for he loves

If Joe had a badge for every office he’s
had in High School he’d look like a signboard.
But laying aside all joking Joe is one of
the best football players that has ever played
on a team for S. H. S. Not only does he
star on the football field, he seems to get
along in his studies as well.
“A soul of fire in a shell of pearl.”

Pearl is our quiet member. Her words are

Billie’s hair is the envy of all the girls,
but he uses his head for something besides a

If “Ick” spent as much time on her stu_

Ernest’s quiet and retiring nature has won
for him a host of friends. Yet he isn’t al¬

Roy’s magnanimity is revealed on English
class. When in doubt as to the pronunciation
of the names of the Gods of old, Roy is ever
ready with a suggestion. If you use it and

Roy is an outstanding member of the class.

We sometimes wonder just how it happens
that Elizabeth accomplishes everything that

Margaret is an honest-to.goodness worker.
There is no “laying out’’ for her. Every
day sees her in her accustomed desk by the

that some day she will be a rival of Pader-

she does on other things.

Katherine is not a self assertive person,
so she rarely volunteers to recits; but when
she is called on, such a volcano of intellec¬
tualness as pours forth. She is exceptionally
smart and the best point of it is that it
hasn’t hurt her one bit. We know that Kath¬

Senior Class History
It is required that unutterable woes and unspeakable joys be written. What
scenes have transpired in which we ourselves have taken no small part. In recounting-
such things what member of the class of ’24 or even of the faculty is without remem¬
brance? Yet if you are so desirous of hearing of our continuous struggles in High
School, though I am filled with remorse in publishing such things, yet I will begin.
To the class of 1924 belongs the distinction of having broken more customs and
traditions and having established more precedents than any class since the first
graduated from S. H. S. We have entirely riddled the theory that scholarship and
deportment always go together. When we were Freshmen we led the school in the
number exempt from all examinations. This record we have maintained during our
four years in High School. Several of our class have never had to take an examina¬
tion. It is to be hoped that they can maintain this high record in college.
As Juniors we furnished all the members of the teams which represented our
school in the triangular debate. These were: Affirmative; Henry Brandis and Roy
Shore, Negative; Stedman Morris and Charles Price.
However, at the same time, we were continually tqld that our deportment was—
to use the terms of our dear teachers—worse than that of any class in which I have
ever taught. At the end of the Sophomore year only three out of all the boys of the
class of '24 had succeeded in keeping a record of “E” on deportment. The first of
these to fall from grace was Charles Price, who made his first “G” on conduct the last
part cf his Junior year. Henry Brandis kept his “E” until about the second month
of this year, when, for some quite evident but not explainable reason he tco fell by the
wayside. Now only one boy remains in the “E” class—this is Elmer Brown. As for
the girls—we are tcld that their conduct has been fairly good except that they have
continually led the boys into conversation and thereby caused considerable confusion.
Our eccentricities are so numerous that after we had been in High School one
year, our beloved principal, Miss Watson, resigned her position, while Mr. Andrews,
after having survived with us during our whole four years, is leaving with us. We
do not claim the entire responsibility for these misfortunes to our school, but we do
hope that the class of 1925 will use discretion as to how it drives away members of
The achievements of the class of ’24 have not been altogether confined to the
classroom, however. We have always had an unusually large number of representa¬
tives on the school’s athletic teams. Unfortunately, space does not permit that they
can be mentioned here. We can well be proud of all of them and rest assured that
they will soon be starring on college teams.
Others of us who did not actively participate in athletics supported the various
teams loyally from the sidelines. Several times in our zeal t.o reach games on time
and because excuses were refused, we had to cut classes and were duly reprimanded
and sentenced to various forms of torture for the same.
When Freshmen we organized and by rare good fortune chose for our nresident
John Holshouser. After wavering for some weeks we finally decided that blue and
white were better colors than pink and green. In our Junior year we were again
organized and Spencer Jackson was elected President. This year during our first
term Walter Harrell was President, while Mary Baker served in that capacity for
the second term.
It is indeed unfortunate that space will not permit that an account be given con¬
cerning the individual achievements cf the members of the class of 24. However,
if any of our beloved readers are curious as to our careers, they may consult “Who’s
Who” for 1935.
Senior Class Prophecy
One afternoon while at a cii’cus 1 went in a side show where a man was offering
to hypnotize people. I eagerly listened while he told about the wonderful trick and
how harmless it was. After hearing him say it was free (I had spent my last cent
to get on the inside) I went up and told him he could put me to sleep. He seemed
pleased beyond expression and so did the tired looking audience which expected its
money’s worth but seldom got it. He put me on a couch, glared at me, and then
shook his fingers at me. At last I fell asleep. Then I had the most marvelous dream.
My mind took a leap into the future and I dreamed twenty-five years ahead of time.
In my dreams I had joined a carnival. The managers of the show were Joe
Overton and Charles Miller who from time to time yelled the wonders of their show
thru a megaphone. In our extensive tour thru North America we stopped in the big
city of Los Angeles. During our performance a young lady came up to me and asked
if we could use her in our show. After finding out that she could play a piano the
position of steam pianist was bestowed upon her at once. After talking to her for a
while I was dumbfounded to find out that she was Elizabeth Sifferd. She told me
that Ellen Fletcher and Elizabeth Henderson had attained that exalted honor, the
Senate, by large majorities. I was glad to hear it for they were certainly cut out
for that jcb. We were walking down the street next day when a small boy ran out
before us screaming “Extra, extra; Shore wins by forty-nine minutes.” The name
sounded familiar so we purchased a copy and discovered to our utmost amazement
that Roy Shore and Emily Rideoutte had run a cross-country airplane race. I was
surprised to learn that Emily could lose in a race requiring speed.
As we turned to continue our walk a thin little woman came rushing by. Seeing
us she stopped, gazed at us, looked harder, opened a bag, took out a lorgnette, and
eyed us suspiciously. I was starting to inquire whether she was a detective or merely
criticizing our dress when she rushed up and said, “My dears, I was really trying to
find out if it were you or not, don’t yer know. I am jolly well glad to see you.” At
last I saw it was Inez Winecoff. She had married an Englishman. Looking across
the street I saw a lady, gaudily dressed, peep around a telephone pole, draw back
suddenly and giggle hysterically. The object of her attentions was a bald-headed
man, except for a small patch of red hair around the bottom of his head, who pre¬
tended he didn’t see her but who in reality watched every movement she made. “I
believe I know that giggle, Elizabeth, don’t you?” After getting an affirmative an¬
swer we advanced and tapped her on the shoulder. “Could this possibly be-?”
I began. “Lucille Miller,” cried Elizabeth, “we thought you were Corinne Leonard.”
She stopped her attentions on the gentleman, who walked off, and showered them on us.
“Corinne? Why she is just around the corner working in that hot dog stand.”
She also told us that Blanche Stuart, Pauline Cress, and Frances Campbell had be¬
come so infatuated with the stage in “Don’t Park Here,” that they had joined the
movies to exhibit their ability and that they were playing there that day in “Faith,
Hope, and Charity.”
As we were getting on the train that night a man approached us and said, “My
dear ladies, as the opportunity of assisting some heavily-laden ladies on this train
has presented itself, I feel it my duty to offer you my humble services and unworthy
self as assistant,-allow me.” He picked up our hat boxes, satchels, grips, hand
bags, and a few sundries that wel were carrying and landed them safely in the car.
I turned to thank him and found it to be Stedman Morris. The conductor whispered—
“No need to thank him—he stays here all the time and speels off that speech to every
lady that gets on the train.” We seated ourselves in front of twq ladies who kept
whispering and giggling until I felt that I must jump up and down and scream.
Turning around to reproach them with my eyes, I found that the two frivolous ladies
were none other than Louise White and Susie Tuck. They were traveling for Swift
and Company. They were in a good place—-those two. I became tired of traveling
and picked up a magazine to divert my mind. It was diverted indeed. There was
a deep and exceedingly interesting article, “The Advantage of Bobbed Hair,” by
Rosalie Wiley. I read it three times before I absorbed it. It was applied wonder¬
fully. About that time the conductor came thni crying, “Next stop is Busbyville.”
When he drew near I said, “What on earth is Busbyville?”
“Why don’t you know? It’s that one man town owned by that millionaire,
George Francis Busby, who made his money in oil stock.” As he was talking I rec¬
ognized one of our brilliant students, Lloyd Rice.
The next week found our troop in Salt Lake City. There we rode up town on
the street car. To our amazement we found it was propelled by an old friend, Herman
Fisher. While in the city we saw an advertisement, “French, Latin, Spanish, German,
and Greek, taught here—Professor Council Archie. We went to see if it were our
friend. He proved to be the identical same. He told us that Russell Daniel, Ray
Fisher, Edward Steele, Mary Baker, and Lucille Baker were assistant teachers, while
he himself taught Yiddish. He also told us that Lewis Hartline held a position as
mining engineer. We left him and went to a vaudeville. There we saw Zela Gheen
as a fairy toe dancer and Ernest Safrit as chief clown. Coming out we discoveded
that the manager of the show was none other than Elizabeth Massey. Next door was
a shingle hanging out which bore this sign “Lippert and Krider—Attorney’s at Law."
I was absolutely struck dumb. But the next day I had the pleasure of hearing them
sway a large crowd to tears in favor of the defendant. The case was a divorce suit
with Arthur Branch and Frances McCorkle playing prominent parts. Strange to say,
Arthur was the defendant. It proved that the judge who was sitting on the case
turned out to be very worthy one, none other than Henry Brandis. After court we
spoke to him. He told us that Carey Bostian and Elmer Brown were auctioneers. In
coming out of the court room a fat woman hustled by and nearly took me off my feet.
I protested; she stopped, looked at me, and then cried out, “Don’t you knew me? It
locks like you would. I’ve fallen off fifty pounds.” Studying her dimpled face, I
recognized an old school chum, Mary Bern Reynolds.
She told us that Betsy McCorkle, Mary Jones, and Katherine Kluttz were partners
in a modiste shop on Fifth Avenue. Leaving Mary Bern relunetantly we decided to
go shopping. These words, on a huge glass window shewing ladies’ apparel, met our
eyes, “Miss Shuping’s Woman’s Shop.” As we were naturally interested we went in.
A tall, slim woman in a long, high-necked black di-ess met us at the door. At once
the stiff, formal face changed and she said, “Oh Mary Susan and Elizabeth, it it really
you?” After answering her that we sincerely hoped we were ourselves, she took us
into an adorable little rest room and said, “Talk, talk, talk for goodness sake-
all I hear is styles and fashions. Whom have you seen that you know?" We told
her all we knew and more besides. At last we tore ourselves away from Sadie and
went on. After wasting all the time we could we again resorted to the newspaper. Great
was my joy and astonishment on beholding these words 1 haden’t before seen, “Represen-
tative Charles Prise smoothes over strained relations between U.S. and Great Britain with
marvelous diplomacy.” Even this was not all. At the bottom of the page we saw
this: “Photographs taken over radio—discovered by Professor Owen. Reading the
article we found Professor Owen to be none other than Billie. He had won distinction
from the masses.
Our last stop before winter headquarters was in Salisbury. While visiting old
S. H. S. which was being used by the grammar grades we met Mary Nicolson who
said she was teaching Geometr-y in the new High School. She informed us of the
fact that Ophenia Shives had made her name world-famous by her undying romance,
“Black Is White” or “Why Lucy Left Home.” It seemed that she was stocked up
with news of classmates for she told us that Catherine Tatum was enlisted in church
work and was doing slum work in China Grove. Katherine Taylor was introducing
a new method of reforming criminals thi'oughout the U. S.
One day while sauntering down Innis street we noticed that Purcell’s Drug Store
was still in existence. Going in to see if Samuel was running it we discovered that
Samuel was located in New York as head of a chain of Purcell’s Drug Stores. So
prosperity had smiled on Samuel. While in the drug store we learned that another
of our class had taken up his father’s profession. David Milne had become an evan¬
gelist. When several days later we visited the new S. H. S. Robert Mauney, who
was the brilliant and enthusiastic principal, greeted us. From him we learned that
Ruth Pierce had married a Trinity college professor and was dean of the college.
Another ambition had been attained!
One night I dropped in a Chautauqua tent to hear a number. The curtain rose
and the manager introduced to us his wonderful contralto, Miss Myrtle Roseman,
who, he said, was from Salisbury. I listened enraptured until a perfectly beautiful
woman swept up the aisle and sat down beside me, wrapping her ermine trimmed
cloak around her carefully. I heard no more singing for it was my cherished school
chum—Bernice Hartman. After the performance I met Carrie Roseman who said
that she was private secretary for Myrtle.
I met Loyce Blaylock on the street that same evening. She told me that she
was teaching music in Salisbury, Spencer, and Franklin. I also learned from her
that Jennie Kluttz had turned out to be an automobile saleslady. I had wondered
why Salisbury was so full of cars. She also said that Betsey Davis, one of our
most popular students, was a Y. W. C. A. worker in Charlotte. Her work was known
all over North Carolina.
Reading the Salisbury Evening Post late that night I noticed to my great sur¬
prise that George Anderson and Mitchell Waggoner were the editors. The Post now
boasted a funny paper and Sunday edition. This edition of the Post carried the an¬
nouncement of Paul Woodson’s election to the state senate.
One night down in the Yadkin Hotel I ran into ai tall, well dressed woman who
seemed to know me. When I was introduced to her by a friend of both of us I found
it to be Margaret Smith. She had married an Earl who had died and left her a
widow with a cool million. She had come to Salisbury to get out of the limelight and
escape a train of admirers. She told me that Elizabeth Murphy was playing a prom¬
inent part in New York society. She also had married—her husband having been a
literary light who had written himself into Elizabeth’s heart. Caldwell Cline had
also risen above the common walks of life. He had tired of his name and now he
called himself Caldwell De Cline. He was in England pursuing a fair one who also
bore a title. Margaret told me to look over the Greensboro paper which she was
carrying. In it I found that Annie Heilig, Zora Nail and I. Z. Christy were partners
in an interior decorators establishment. They had decorated many popular places,
including the President’s country home, the Vanderbilt’s palace, the Strand theatre,
etc. I also found in the same paper that Sam Lee Hall was a picture show director
in Hollywood, and threatening to stand on the pedestal that D. W. Griffith and Cecil
B. De Mille now hold.
My dream now grew dimmer and faded into the shouting of people. I opened
my eyes and found I was lying on the same couch that I went to sleep on. I had
come back into the reality.

Senior Class Poem
Farewell, our beloved S. H. S!
We leave thee with stout hearts and bold,
To see what the future holds for us
Who were taught by thS black and the gold.
Through four long years we’ve journeyed on
In our quest for useful learning,
But never will the fires go out
Which you have set to burning.
We thank you for all that you taught us.
For our joys and the hardships we bore.
May you ever have cause to feel proud
Of the class of twenty-four.
Farewell, our beloved S. H. S!
Your memory ever will stay
In the hearts of us who are leaving
Your cherished portals today.
Katherine Taylor, Poet.
Senior Class Song
We have sailed the sea of High School days,
Blown by the winds both east and west;
Now at last we reach the parting ways,
And must leave our beloved S. H. S.
Farewell to thee, farwell to thee;
The walls will hold the secret of our gain:
Just one fond glance to hold in memory,
Until we meet again.
When we hear the dear old school bell ring,
It seems to call us back to class;
To our minds in future it will bring
Happy mem’ries of school days that are past.
We have left our marks along the walls,
In books, and carved upon our desks;
But forever stamped upon our hearts
Is the mark of our dear old S. H. S.
When we meet the trials of the world,
We’ll work and strive to do our best;
For we’ll ne’er forget the lessons learned
From our study in dear old S. H. S.

Senior Class Statistics
After having been chosen to write the statistics of our class, I could only look
wise for I knew not what statistics might or might not be. Just as soon as I was
alone I rushed for a dictionary to find out just what it was I was in for. To my
dismay 1 found that the word statistics means facts and figures of a group of people.
Since the styles are what they are I need say nothingi of one kind of figures. The
other figures, however, are not so soon dispensed with. It was only by adding our
weights and dividing the results by seventy-five (the supposed number of graduates)
that I finally came to the conclusion that cur average weight is one hundred and
twenty-one pounds. At first it seemed that our average would not be fair if Mitchell
Waggoner, our smallest, and Ruth Pierce, our largest, were included; but matters
were straightened out w r hen I subtracted seme from Ruth and added the same amount
to Mitchell. By the same means our total height is three hundred seventy-eight and
one-half feet and our average is five feet six inches.
There has recently been invented a scheme by which one’s brains are measured.
A book is placed on the top of the head and the straight measure from under the
side of the book to the top of the ear is the measurement of the brain. Scientists
have found that the average brain is five and one quarter inches and only exceptional
brains range greater than five and one half inches. We have always realized that
we were exceptional but this test proved it to everyone, withj the exception, perhaps
of our teachers. This measuring was a delicate process, still everything went along
smoothly until George Francis Busby was reached; he for some unknown reason ab¬
solutely refused to be measured. Then, too, another difficulty was reached in the
shape of Carey Bostian. I had only a twelve inch ruler and it wouldn’t reach the
top of his head. The only cause to which I could attribute such an astonishing dis¬
covery was that his hair was arranged in its usual coiffure. Anyway! by leaving off
the two aforementioned prodigies our brains measured five and three-fourth inches.
The facts, however, are not so easily dispensed with. Being of a peaceful nature
I begin with fear and trembling, but I have safeguarded myself by taking out a life-
insurance policy, so here goes!
Probably the most sought for honor would be that of best all around. This
honor is highly contested. 11-B claims that it belongs to Mary Baker and Joe Overton,
while 11-A is just as sure that Frances McCorkle and Arthur Branch should have it.
It would never do to start a fuss about such a matter so they may hold the place jointly.
Next on the list of sought for honors comes “locks.” Never was there such a
good looking class. The beys aren’t so handsome it is true, but the girls certainly
are right there when it comes to beauty. How they would appear without their hair
curled and their faces rouged I won’t say, but the result is certainly worth seeing.
Among our Beau Brummels are Robert Mauney, Paul Wcodson, George Busby, Charles
Price, and Arthur Branch. I am fearful of naming the prettiest girl, but among the
prettiest are Mary Jones, Ethel Lippert, Rosalie Wiley, and Mary Baker.
Everyone in our class is popular, although most of us are more popular with
ourselves than we are with anyone else. Still it is comparatively easy to find out
that Henry Parker Brandis, Jr. is most popular with himself, Charles Price is best
liked by the girls, and Blanche Stuart by the boys.
Although Seniors we are woefully lacking in dignity and if it weren’t for Elmer
Brown and Charles Miller (sometimes) we don’t know who would uphold our supposed
dignity. Elmer also shares with Ellen Fletcher the trait of being most studious.
Henry Brandis might have gotten it last year, but this year a mysterious change has
come over him.
Although the “Fisher brothers” could undoubtedly claim brilliancy by what is on
top of their heads, Katherine Taylor and Henry Brandis get it for what’s on the inside.
If a certain member of cur class were going to graduate, it would be extremely
easy to name the laziest, but since we leave him behind, the honor falls to George
As for the most talented, that is hard to say. We are all talented, for haven’t
we successfully endured four years of High School? Musically, Stedman Morris, our
saxaphone hound, would claim it, but Elizabeth Sifferd, our piano player, would get
it. Talents include many things. Dancing might come under this head and I am
assured that another member who falls by the wayside should get it. Since he is ine¬
ligible, Frances McCorkle gets the honor. The art of lying with the greatest ease
is highly contested, especially by David Milne and Charles Price. Since these two
gentlemen also contest for the place as most talkative it seems best to split the
honors and give David that of talking, leaving Charles the place of best liar.
Mary Susan Griggs shares the envious position of being best natured with Fritz
Campbell, who is our best little sport. The Latin class attributes these young-
ladies’ good nature to the fact that neither of them takes Virgil.
It seems “quite the thing” for the papers to take different features of different
people and make them into one perfect face. We feel sure that we might do this and
have the most perfect face yet if we took Rosalie Wiley’s hair, Elizabeth Henderson’s
eyes, I. Z. Christy’s eyelashes, Mary Bern Reynolds’ dimple, Betsy McCorkle’s smile,
Fritz Campbell’s mouth, and Corrinne Leonard’s nose.
Among miscellaneous curiosities we have five long haired girls, one Chandler,
seven Fords, five Buicks, forty-nine compacts, forty-four combs, and last but not
least seventy diplomas.
The preceeding are the facts and figures of our class transcribed to the best of

Junior Class History
The Junior Class is very large this year and it is to be hoped that the Senior Class
of next year will also be a large one. The Juniors led in the number of exemptions
at mid-term, and they are very proud of their long list. There are also a large
number of students classed as Juniors who have built up for themselves quite a
renutation at S. H. S. We wish to mention a few who have made themselves familiar
to the other students in the High School and to the townspeople as well.
Thomas Kesler and Mary Elizabeth Strickland, members of the triangular debat¬
ing team, are very studious inhabitants of 10-A. Together with Buster Gregory, of
football and Fi-ench fame, they support 10-A’s part of the class very well.
Hereford Wolfe, also known as “Cowpuncher,” hails from 10-B. Hereford has
played varsity tackle on the football team for three years and is captain-elect of the
team. “Herf” is also President of our class.
Agnes Rideoutte, chief marshal, well-known to everybody, gets her report card
from 10-C. Agnes is better known by almost everybody as “Tootie.” Fred Ryan,
who has held down third base for Salisbury for two years, also sits in 10-C.
John Holshouser, who has played four years as catcher on the baseball team and
who has been captain of the team for the last two years and is manager of the foot¬
ball team for next year is registered in 10-D. Ralph Fesperman, better known as
“Wink,” also a member of 10-D has carved his name in Salisbury’s athletic hall af
fame, in that he has been the mainstay of Salisbury’s pitching staff. “Bud” Shuler,
chief marshal, varsity football man for three years, captain basketball team last
season, and pitcher on the base ball team, is also from 10-D.
This has been a rather quiet year for the Juniors, except for the much enjoyed
Junior-Senior party, the time Fesperman beat Spencer, Fred Ryan walked from
Concord, and several other incidents.

Sophomore Class History
In the fall of 1922, one hundred and twenty live freshmen entered Salisbury High
School. Locking back from the height of the Sophomore class we think we must
have appeared very verdant to the older members of the High School. At first many
of us were homesick for our old schools but we soon got over this. During our
Freshman year we won the most points in the Athletic Association.
In September, 1923, we entered as Sophomores, feeling very grown up. We
have since been busy keeping up with the activities and studies of the Sophomore
year. When we leave our High School we hope to leave an excellent and never-to-

Freshman Class History
When school opened in September we were a happy grcup of girls and boys, for
at last we were numbered among the High School throng. With high hopes we began
our journey toward the next goal passed on this road to knowledge. We were about
two hundred and fifty in number, but after a territic struggle with Arithmetic prob¬

Senior Girls’ Club
Senior Girls' Club History
The past year has> indeed been a successful one for the Senior Girls’ Club under
the leadership of the following officers:
President __ Frances McCorkle
Vice-president _ Mary Jones
Secretary___ Elizabeth Sifferd
Treasurer _ Ellen Fletcher
Advisers _ Miss Harrell, Mrs. Norwood
After the organization and installation cf officers in the fall, we sent to the
county home a box of fruit, candy and the like, which was greatly appreciated.
During the winter, we had several enjoyable social functions such as the party
for the football team, the Christmas affair at the Y hut, and the club supper.
However, we have not spent all our time in this manner, for we had the oppor¬
tunity of rendering the White Christmas Program in chapel. Then, for several weeks,
the club sold candy at the school and made a considerable sum of money for the Jap¬
anese Relief Fund. Also, we packed a box of useful articles and sent it to an Indian
school in Oklahoma, which was much appreciated by the boys and girls.
As a public service, our representatives have been helping Miss Bennett in the
Public Library. Djuring “Keep Faith Week,” we enjoyed interesting talks by Miss
Locke, Mr. E. M. Hoffman, and Miss Gardyne of High Point. The program, which
was attended by all High Schocl girls, was very inspirational.
Then, as a final activity, we gave the “Fun for Folks” circus at the Y hut on May
16 , which proved such a great success financially that we hope to be able to send sev¬
eral delegates to the Y. W. C. A. Conference this summer.
Our members are: Irene Burke; Mary Chambers; Pauline Cress; Betsey Davis;
Ellen Fletcher; Ruth Fulk; Pauline Julian; Jennie Kluttz; Katherine Kluttz; Mary

The names of the members are as follows:

When the Junior-Sophomore Girls’ Reserve was organized, in November, 1923,
there were thirty-two members. The program for the year was carried out by the
four committees: membership, program, social, and service.
We have had some very interesting programs this year such as, “What Am I
Worth?”, “Hobbies,” “An Evening with Birds,” and a Christmas play. One of the
outstanding pieces of work of the service committee was to fix Chi-istmas boxes for
fifty Indian children. They also helped to keep the rest rooms in the Community
Building and station supplied with magazines.
The social committee has given us many good times in the way of winnie-roasts
and parties. Many of the members have shown great interest in hiking and nature
Instead of a joint club next year it is planned to have a Junior and a Senior Club.
The following officers have been elected for the Senior Club next year: President,
Margaret Rendleman; Vice-President, Dorothy Fleming; Secretary, Mary Elizabeth
Strickland; Treasurer, Lucille Coltrane. Those for the Junior Club are: President,
Grace Daniel; Vice-president, Mabel Davis; Secretary, Fannie Wallace; Treasurer,
The club owes its progress to Miss Locke and Mrs. E. M. Hoffman who. have been
most capable advisers of the club this year.
Senior Hi^Y History
Secretary_Roy A. Shore
Hi-Y has closed its most successful year. Never before has any Hi-Y had such
a splendid program carried out. Our members have worked hard and we think there
has been quite an effect produced on the High School. Mr. A. S. Jones has made our
Bible Study very interesting and has helped us in many ways. We were indeed for¬
tunate in having Mr. Jones as our leader and the Club wishes to express its appre¬
ciation for his fine and needed services.
Our purpose; “Toi create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and com¬
munity, high standards of Christian character,” has been lived up to, and carried out
to its fullest extent. Our platform is the Four C’s. They are Clean Speech, Clean
Sports, Clean Living and Clean Scholarship.
The theme of Four C’s was brought out very impressively during one of our
most forceful Four C’s Campaigns. Then nearly all the High School fellows signed
the “Come Clean Cards” and few of the fellows will soon forget the meaning these
cards hold. We are indebted to the delegation from Chapel Hill, for its splendid
work during this period.
Hi-Y stands for Four-Square Fellows; advocating under the intellectual side,
Clean Scholarship; under the physical side, Clean Athletics; under the spiritual side,
Bible Study and last under the social side, socials, wennie roasts and overnight hikes.
In conclusion we present a summary of last year’s work; Fifty Thousand Dollar
Club; Four C’s Campaign; overnight hikes; Hi-Y Conference; Delegation to Older
Boys’ Conference; Triangular Track-Meet; Boys’ Week; Stunt Night; increase in
membership; and lastly the arrangement of next year’s program.

Junior Hi-Y History
The members of the Junior Hi-Y are as follows:
We are sorry to say that the Junior Hi-Y has not done all that it could have done
this year. The Bible Study has been bad and the attendance nothing to brag about.
However, that is past and we are the Senior Hi-Y and we mean to put out some real
work next year.
Lincoln Kesler led in attendance for the year with Luther Barnhardt second
and Arthur Morris a close third. A brief summary of Junioi* Hi-y’s activities is as
We held our first meeting in September with Dr. Tatum as our leader. The
various committees and their chairmen were appointed. We started out for a banner
year. Christmas all the Juniors enjoyed the Hi-y-Girls’ Club party. Seven boys
were initiated into the Royal Order of the Kazebras which bears the same part in
Junior Hi-y as the Dodo Hunters in the Senior group. At the regular Induction
ceremony Merriman Gregory, Max Barker, Nelson Woodson, Laurance Underhill,
Richard Lentz, George Fisher, and Karl Morgan were taken in.
The following officers have been elected for the coming year from a list of
nominees submitted by the nominating committee. President, Hereford Wolfe; Vice-
President, Fred Floyd; Secretary, Laurance Underhill; Treasurer, Junius Fisher.
With such fine officers for next year we should make the year the best foi* Hi-y.
The members of Junioi' Hi-y wish to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Tatum
for his time and service through the past year and for the interest which he has
taken in us as a club and as individuals.

Query: Resolved, that the inter-allied war debts should be cancelled.
Mary Elizabeth Strickland Thomas Kesler
Harold McCurdy Henry Brandis
The state inter-high school debate this year aroused much interest and brought
out about fifteen debaters from S. H. S. One reasqm for this was that the query was
of nation-wide interest and was decidedly a two-sided question.
Statesville’s team (negative) put up a gcod debate, but did not prove equal to
our affirmative team. The debate was held in Salisbury and resulted in a two to one
decision in favor of Salisbury. Our negative team won over Concord’s affirmative
team at Concord by a unanimous decision. This entitled us to ga to Chapel Hill but
there our inexperience manifested itself when both our teams were defeated in the
first preliminary. The final debate was between Durham (negative) and Wilson
(affirmative). The decision was three to two in favor of Wilson. This was the
first year Salisbury’s debaters ever went to Chapel Hill. We wish them better suc¬
cess when they get there next year.

High School Athletics
The Salisbury High School has enjoyed its best year in athletics during the season
past. More interest has been taken in the various sports by patrons and fans than
ever before, and also by the students themselves. The number of candidates answer¬
ing the call for practice for the different sports exceeded by far the numbers here¬
tofore, and good work was done by these new aspirants.
The building of the Y hut last fall aided athletics materially as the boys had
dressing rooms in this structure. The basketball practices were held and games were
played on the spacious court of this building. Excellent seating equipment afforded
an opportunity to handle the crowds, and good attendance held up throughout the
The outlook for athletics next year is very encouraging. A new field has been
built on the grounds on which the new high school building is to be erected and this
will be available next fall. For the first time in the history of the school the football
and baseball teams will have a permanent field on which to practice, and best of all,
on which to play their home games.
The football call to practice was answered by approximately 40 candidates. Three
full teams stuck throughout the season and under the careful training of Coach F. B.
John, assisted by Gordon Urbansky, former Randolph-Maccn Academy star, a good
team was whipped into shape. Out of a total of nine games played, the record shows
that two ware won; two tied; and five lost. However, since the team wast made of
much new material the season was not a failure. The new men received plenty of ex¬
perience and will prove a valuable nucleus around which to build the team of next year.
Probably the best game of the season was played against Greensboro. Although
Salisbury last by the close score of 13 to 6, Greensboro had to exert her every energy
to win. The victors expected a walk-away in this game, but were sorely disappointed.
Salisbury entered the championship series and won the fii'st game easily from
Morganton. Statesville was next on the list and for five quarters the two teams
fought with neither being able to push the pigskin across the last white line. Another
game was necessary for Statesville to assert her supremacy by the score of 9 to 0.
Emerson Faggart, half back, was the captain of the team, while Fred Burke man¬
aged it. Hereford Wolfe, right tackle, is captain-elect.
Salisbury entered her second year of basketball under auspicoius circumstances.
Practically all of the team of last year were back, and the new Y hut court was thrown
open to the players. Physical Director Dunham of the Y, former star basketball
player, had charge of the coaching, assisted by Coach John. A good sized squad was
busy all the season perfecting plays, and some splendid games were the result. Out
of a total of seventeen games played by the varsity, ten were victories. The second
team played three games and won two. Only one varsity man is lost from the
squad by graduation.
The championship series was entered for the first time in this sport. Concord
was defeated in the first game, but Farm Life ended championship hopes by
defeating the locals by the hair-raising score of 22 to 21.
One of the most pleasing games of the season was the 16-14 victory over Char¬
lotte high. It took five quarters to do it, but at the close of the game Salisbury held
the big end of the score.
James Shuler, left guard, captained the team during this season while Emerson
Faggart held the managerial end of it. Fred Floyd, center, will head the team next
As in football, a baseball team had to be built from a small nucleus. Three of
last year players, John Holshouser, captain of the team and catcher; Fred Ryan,
third baseman; and Emerson Faggart, right fielder and manager, were the beginning
from which the present season’s team was built. Ten games were played with four
victories, five losses and a tie game that went twelve innings.
One of the outstanding features of the season was the pitching of Rowe Fesper-
man, who hurled his fiist year of baseball for Salisbury. In the final game of the
season he hung up the remarkable recorci of twenty-five strikeouts in a nine inning
game, twenty of these coming in succession. The remaining five were made in suc¬
cession also. John Holshouser led the team in batting with an average of 400.
Spencer, the ancient rival, and runner-up in the west for state championship,
was defeated in the annual Easter Mcnday game by the decisive score of 6 to 1. Fes-
perman yielded only three hits in this game and had 18 strikeouts.
For the first time in six years, Salisbury did not enter the state championship
series. With practically the entire team back next year, and with a favorable season,
Salisbury should present championship timber.

Give Us PART of Your Business
If You Can’t Give Us ALL!
Some institutions want ALL OR NOTHING.
WE WANT ALL OR PART.
In fact, our progress during eighteen years might
have been even greater, but for our policy of de¬
voting most of our time to cultivating the business
we have rather than coveting the business we
should like to get.
And we are not departing from that policy even
now. We are still more concerned with satis¬
fying old customers than seeking new ones. But
because we have more satisfaction to give than
our present customers can use up, we just want
to go on record, that—
We would like part of your business—if you
can’t give us all!
