(5) Dear Alumnus If you were to return to Crewe High School as a student, you would find that a great many changes have taken place since you were graduated. Those of you who are parents of some of the present students would scarcely recognize more than the main bui Iding, for within the last ten years, the In¬ dustrial Arts Building, the Vocational Agri¬ culture Building, and the Cafeteria Building have been added. Others of you might notice the changes which have come about at the Sta¬ dium. Even those of you who were graduated as recently as last year, would be pleased to see that the new draperies in the Auditorium really look like something, now that the seats on the first floor have been replaced 1. your bequest of a water fountain was keenly appreciated during the unprecedented heat. ,1 i. 1. w. <aJ Xm.'4 ¥.

Those of you who have become alumni of Crewe High since 1951 will recall that The. BETTY CASSADA. 1951 Railroader contained a picture of the school board with the caption, "The Nottoway County School Board adopts the 12 year school plan." This action meant that the following September, those students who would have gone into high school went into an eighth grade in¬ stead, leaving no regular Freshman class in 1951-52. Normally then, there would have been no Class of '55. By the time The 1953 Railroader came off the press, there were nine listed as Sopho¬ mores. This was due to transfers from other schools and irregularities in credits due to ab¬ sences, dropouts, etc. The 1954 annual again. EDDIE JO CLEVELAND. lists nine members in the Class of '55, though not the same nine persons enrol led the previous year—again because of transfers. In the autumn of 1954, there were eight of these, plus one who entered late last year, enrolled as Seniors; two who chose to return. Page 12 Sponsored by CRITTENDEN'S DRUG STORE.

Before the second six weeks had ended, another transferred from Richmond bringing the total enrollment to the fourteen shown on these two pages. A history of such a class would be most difficult, for it would of necessity be fourteen histories. Even though the class is small, it has participated in the same social functions and extra-curricular activities as it would have had it been a larger, continuous class. In 1954, as Juniors, these students were the guests, rather than the hosts, at the "Junior-Senior" banquet and dance. Again this year, they will be the guests—a small compensation for their small number. The traditional commencementactivities are scheduled, even though the class is small. The activities in which these students have participated, along with the schools at¬ tended are listed on the following page.. Sponsored by JONES AND COMPANY GENERAL INSURANCE J. M. JONES J. M.

The seventh grade holds many memories for us and among these our trip to Washington was most memorable.. It was very exciting to. see Congress in session and to visit Mt. Vernon.

(27) Boys are introduced to vocational agriculture.. Girls learn to sew.. THE EIGHTH GRADE IS LARGE AND ACTIVE Over the years, the greatest change in the curriculum has come about in connection with the changing from an 11-year to a 12-year school system.. In the Amelia-Nottoway Division, this was accomplished by the. insertion of an Eighth Grade. The students pictured on the next two pages are members of Crewe's fourth Eighth Grade;. next year's. Seniors will be the first to graduate having had the full 12-year program. In addition to Eighth Grade English, mathematics, science, social studies, and physical education, these students have a period designated as "Eighth Grade Exploratory" which includes agriculture, industrial arts, and music for the boys, and home economics, personality problems and music for the girls. The pictures on this page were taken in some of these exploratory classes.. Personality Problems class enjoyed a Mother-Daughter Panel discusThe shop machines interest the boys.. sion..

THE SCA COUNCIL ISA REPRESENTATIVE GROUP^X, The Student Cooperative Council consists of a representative from each homeroom and eoch'-ctub q£"'_ organization. Elections to the Council are held at the beginning of the school year, officers are elecfted in the spring to serve the following school year. The sponsoring of Homecoming was one of the first activities of the SCA. Under the leadership of Mrs. Dorothy France, the Association promoted a parade before the football game, the Friday night game with Kenbridge, and the Saturday night dance at the Center. Following the resignation of Mrs. France, Miss Irwin Staples became the sponsor.. The association has. been responsible for arranging an assembly program each Thursday morning, as well as promoting the inter^* ^ club dance and the eighth, ninth and tenth grade dance. 1 ^ v Crewe's SCA council sent several representatives to the District meeting in Amelia in Novembe .

Records of a year later show that the name had been changed and green and white chosen as its colors. Most of the activity of the Ace of Clubs stems from its dual purposes—the promotion of social contacts in Crewe High and the sponsoring of baseball. This year's initiates dressed as nursery rhyme characters and produced a pantomime, "A Human Ford, " as an assembly program. The Club entertained its alumnae at a tea on New Year's day. Baseball season will find them busy at the new concession stand in the grandstand..

(60) Jerry Fuller Business Manager. Marian Davis Betty Jo Newcomb Editor. THESE STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS BOOK. Mary Frances Ford. Wayne Pulley. Frank Shepard. Alice Tunstall. Railroader Staff pages in the past have usually contained pictures of staff members busy at their jobs. But this Railroader is different for a great many reasons—chiefly because of the size of the graduating class. Due to the irregularity of schedules of Seniors, much of the detail work of the book had to fall on underclassmen. The only clearly defined jobs were those of the Editor, Betty Jo Newcomb; the Business and Advertising Manager, Jerry Fuller; and the Sponsor, Mrs. Hag berg. The others whose pictures appear on this page were members of a so-called "publications" class. This group met in the Typing Room workroom (the kitchen of former years) and donated a study period each day to work on The Dispatcher and The Railroader, averaging three days a week on the former, and two on the latter. Their work was freewill, for they received no academic credit for it. Their duties ranged all the way from writing copy, taking snapshots, and identifying pictures, to typing copy and proofreading. Thus, each might be called an "assistant editor." Peggy Sue Via and Thelma Stewart helped Jerry Fuller with the advertising in Burkeville. Jerry, by the way, doubled as photo¬ grapher. Alice Tunstall headed the group of homeroom solicitors for the sales campaign. She was assisted by Eddie Norton, Frank Shep¬ ard, Barbara Bass, Lewis Bridgforth, Bobbie Lee Vanarsdall, Jane Colley Wright, Dottie Layman, Ann Turner, and Joan Clay. Sher¬ wood Robertson drew the cover motif. The Staff is again indebted to Miss Kay Crittenden who took the raiIroad pictures used on the divider pages, as well as the basket¬ ball pictures. The Norfolk and Western Magazine Department con¬ tributed the picture, on page 40, of the combined choruses which sang at the Better Service Club meeting. The 1955 Rai Iroader Staff is grateful to those who have spon¬ sored pages inthisbook. A complete listof these sponsors will appear in the supplement which will be delivered in the late summer. Itwill beevident to al I that this has indeed been a cooperative venture and represents the work of many hands. It is the hope that it will bring pleasure to students and alumni alike. Betty Jo Newcomb, Editor P. S. Be on the lookout for the supplement! It will contain al spring and commencement activities. BJN.

(68) PARTING IS SUCH SWEET SORROW June 10. 1955. '. The 1955 Railroader Staff and the Class of 1955 never realized the truth of this ex¬ pression until now. The graduation events have come and gone. A dozen more stu¬ dents have been added to the ranks of the alumni. The events recorded in this book have become history. Your Staff is happy to have been able to acquaint the present students, as well as the alumni, with the happenings and changes which have taken place in "old CHS." We are grateful to Mrs. Hagberg and other mem¬ bers of the faculty for their cooperation, without which this book would have been very incomplete. The Class of 1955 is glad to have finish¬ ed at a time when thought and attention were being given to another graduating class of CHS, the Class of 1930. Thirty-two of the forty-four persons who graduated twentyfive years ago, met at the Community Cen¬ ter, June 3, for a homecoming banquet. The affair was so enjoyable that the class voted to contribute what funds were left over after expenses to starting a fund to be used in furthering the formation of an Alum¬ ni Association. Mrs. Mary Klocke Shipp was named treasurer. We hope that other classes will follow the lead set by the Class of 1930—CHS de¬ serves an Alumni Association!. i.
