'WE CAN'T SAY ADIEU— D THE NEWSPAPER OF THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION WITHOUT A SIGH' VOLUME XI, NUMBER 8 GOLDSBORO, N. C., JUNE 9, 1938 50 CENTS A YEAR Reminiscences Mark Class Day Program Enacted By Seniors Whitaker, Crone and Ham Compose Committee To Write, Cast And Direct Program The Thoughts of. a Graduate With originality inarking* the program the seniors presented their (‘lass day exercises yesterday. The history written by George Ilam was given in a playlet form, the scene taking place in 1990 in the home of Grandpa, who was a graduate of the ’38 class. His grandson was graduating that night, and he was alone when old class mates Avalked in. The history was worked in a conversation of old times. Seniors Compose Cast Senioi's taking parts were Grand pa, Jack Wharton; his son. Hardy Lee Thompson; son’s wife, Helen Moye; grandson, Eoss Ward; his kid sister, Doris Startt; visitor, George Ham; and the visitor’s wife, Nancy Pipkin. 'J'he class prophecy was presented in the form of a radio broadcast of a ’38 class reunion with Kidley Whitaker, class prophet, acting as the announcer. The following took part: Frances Coward, James Kannan, Jack Whar ton, Thomas Snypes and Rudolph Pate.

Tlte irindows, empty and blank in the silence of the muffled dark, all at once reflected images of the hours spent in the heart of the school. Happy honrs'f and still the ones of hardest work, deepest worries, and healed arguments are just as cleojT as those of pleasure and laughter, 'rite thoughts of crammin(j, lough assignments, and the din of protesting voices are living as the dark hut definite colors in the background of memories. Dark and often dis cordant colors yet they offer the contrast for the bright and careless ones in the foreground. Socials, sports, gaiety, and joy scatter brilliant splashes in an abandoned way throughout the hazy dream, radiating sparkling bits of merriment. And then the gleaming colors blend into the calmer, modest shades of well-done work, hard-earned praise, and rjAvards given into thankful hands. Near the front of all thoughts shines the cool grey of seniors marching as the strains of “Largo” reach my listening ear. All dreams arid memories are held together by strong bond's of friendship, each one offering its small part to keep the tfioughts of future true, and as the music fades, each color mixes with^ the others until hardly discernible. lljach dab of color holds so 'much the key to a wealth of memories Bobuie Axne Sanuokn.
