FREDDIE ANN BUTT
Mrs. Gertrude Kipp Walden, recognized as a devoted teacher, died October 16, 1962, just two weeks after she met her classes for the last time.
Educated at the University of Cincinnati, the University of Richmond, and the University of Virginia, she brought to her classes a wealth of knowledge which she had acquired through prolific reading and diligent study. She was keenly observant, constantly alert to current events, deeply concerned about the problems of the educational field. Her cultural background was a broad one, so that those who came under influence were aware that she knew whereof she spoke. Through her last weeks teaching were spent under most adverse circumstances engendered by pain and physical suffering, Mrs. Waldron bravely performed the duties of a classroom teacher and planned her work efficiently even from her hospital bed.
In the death of Gertrude Wadron, Woodrow Wilsion High School has lost a conscientious teacher, and the community, a woman of integrity.

MRS. HATTIE COOPER
A yearbook is like a clock or calendar in that all three mark the passage of time. It is my earnest wish that this book will remind you many times in the long years ahead of four profitable years passed in the classrooms and on the playing fields of Woodrow Wilson High School. I pray that you are better people for having passed this way.
This year our theme has been WORK and WIN with HONOR and SCHOLARSHIP. As we glance backward we can take pride in the fact that generally we have been a working group, and our work has frequently resulted in victories both scholastically and athletically: but most important of all, we have held high the badge of honor.
"You can finish your year, or your high school course in the case of seniors, with a deserved "Well done!" from your principal."
Robert W. Allen
"A justice of our present Supreme Court has stated in an official opinion: "Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principal that teachers are no longer qualified to guide the young because the generations live in two different worlds. Politicians rant that we cannot solve today's problems with yesterday's solutions. True, the winds of greed and envy have profoundly shaken the world you were born into. We see it darkly. But fear not, friends. After the storm the dust will settle, and the same truths will still be there. You school days will not have been in vain."
