She possesses — 

An enthusiasm for her subject that is transferred to her 
students . . . 

An interest that does not begin and end between the 
covers of a textbook . . . 

A curiosity which compels her to delve beneath the 
surface . . . 

An eagerness for new information which she passes on 
to her students with a familiar “Now then, 
Class . . 

She admires excellence, disdains mediocrity and 
apathy, but will accept honest effort. Cow brains, baby 
chickens, bean plants and amoebas all hold a fascina- 
tion for her — fascination that is somehow strangely 
contagious . . . 

The 1969 OAK LEAF spotlights 

MISS MAE JENNINGS 




5 



For everything there is a season, 

And a time for every matter under heaven: 

A Time to be born, a time to die; 

A Time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; 

A Time to kill, and a time to heal; 

A Time to break down, and a time to build up; 

A Time to weep, and a time to laugh; 

A Time to mourn, and a time to dance; 

A Time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones 
together; 

A Time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 
A Time to seek, and a time to lose; 

A Time to keep and a time to cast away; 

A Time to rend, and a time to sew; 

A Time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 

A Time to love, a time to hate; 

A Time for war, and a time for peace. 


Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Jane 


Leaves fall from the trees 
Such as days from the years. 

The leaves are lifted by the breeze 
And days remembered with out tears. 

Yes, these are the days loved by all 
Yet, they are gone, Yes . . . 

Gone With the Wind.

The succession of hops and dances that become a 
blurred memory ... the forgotten boyfriend or girl- 
friend of the 8th grade days . . . the crisp air of football 
games or the excitement that explodes in a crowded 
gym . . . the romantic mood of the Jr.-Sr. Prom— 
“Gone With the Wind” . . . the teacher who could 
never be deceived . . . the series of “lasts” — the last 
football game — the last pep rally — the last dance . . . 
the melancholy mood of Senior Assembly . . . the 
wearing of a cap and gown . . . the mental tabulation of 
failures and accomplishments . . . the finality of an 
empty locker ... “I declare you graduates of Radford 
High School.” . . . things will never be the same.

RHS Tennis Team 
NRD Champs 1968 

For the second consecutive year, the RHS netmen, under Coach 
Jerry Glass, captured the NRD title. The Cats, led by Wayne 
Nottingham, Frank Scott, Russell Allen, Dickie Wall, Bill Akers, 
and Sammy Pack, were undefeated in regular season play, walking 
over district competition. The highlights of the season were hard 
earned victories over Jefferson and Altavista, out of District 
opponents. 

Sporting a record of fourteen wins and no defeats, the netmen 
journeyed to Harrisonburg for the Western Regional Finals. There, 
they were beaten 7—2 by a fine Harrisonburg team. Sammy Pack, 
who was the lone Cat undefeated in singles play, won his singles 
match, while the stalward team of Scott and Nottingham picked up 
the other point in doubles play.
