Eleven years and ten months ago from this graduation—we, the Grad¬ uating Class of 1950, added our names to the enrollment records of Ahoskie School. On that day, the first of September, 1938, we were left to the care of Mrs. John Bozeman and Mrs. Orville Creech, our first grade teachers and under the supervision of Mr. F. M. Tucker, principal. Our first year was spent in adjusting ourselves to school work and yet we found time to put on a Tom Thumb Wedding which came off smoothly without a mishap. At Christmas both sections of the first grade came together in front of our play¬ house made from refrigerator boxes, to listen to Christmas programs on a borrowed radio. On June 1 we were dismissed for our first summer vacation, and how welcome it was! Back to school we went again and found two new teachers, Miss Marietta Picot and Miss Annette Darden. Not much happened on the lighter side of these school days, except a wiener roast at the Big Chimney, given to us by our Grademothers at the end of the year. This school year we were divided alphabetically into two sections in¬ stead of according to our grades as in the previous years. The first class was under Mrs. Bessye Harrell and the second half under Miss Eleanor Best. The first, second and fourth grades worked with us (the third grade) to produce an operetta— " Why The Flowers Grow " , in which we portrayed flowers in an enchanted garden. The fourth grade marked our graduation into Grammar School. This year our class won a book week poster contest and presented the prize—a painting to the school. Our teachers this year were Mrs. Sam Boyette and Mrs. Tripp. We also had our first taste of Geography. This year we saw the first effects of the war, our principal left to enlist in the Army. Our teachers were Mrs. Stevenson and Miss Sessoms. A The sixth grade and a new principal—Mr. Beale took charge. Miss Jose¬ phine Ambrose and Mr. A. L. Thompson were our teachers. Not much happened this year under Miss Mina Holloman and Mrs. Julian Brown, the school work kept us busy. In the eighth grade under Mrs. J. N. Rigby and Mrs. Robert Carter, ten students from Powellsville joined our class. We tried the Demerit System with little success and the Grademothers gave us a dance in the study hall. At the end of the year our class took a trip to Raleigh. The ninth grade was our first year in high school—we first changed classes and took part in sports. Nine students from Winton joined our class. Our teachers were Mr. A. W. Edwards and Mr. Pop Sams. This year Mr. R. A. Mobley became our principal. Our Sophomore year under Mrs. Percy Minton and Mrs. Deans Brett marked the first year of the Ahoskie Band. Also our Gymnasium was started. Our Junior year teachers were Miss Ruth Parker and Mr. Floyd Overton. This year we had an undefeated Football Season and our class rings came. The Senior year Mr. Tucker came back and Miss Deborah Brown and Mrs. Harrell were our teachers. This year our Grademothers gave us a Hallowe ' en Party and our teachers and principal accompanied us to Wash¬ ington. So we, the Seniors, take leave of Ahoskie High School.

Congratulations should go to the band which is under the direction of Robert Brown, for a year of fine perform¬ ance. Starting off right, they attended football games both at and away from home. They were invited to parades in Enfield, Murfrees¬ boro, and Wilfiamston. Parents and friends enjoyed a con¬ cert by the versatile band on Dec. 15. The public spirited band spurred the March of Dimes on to a successful cam¬ paign. Several members of the band attended a band clinic in Greenville. Later, the climax of the year came when the band competed in the East Carolina High School Band Contest in Greenville. «« 1 pite ' c to» FRONT ROW: Anna Gatling; Joyce Earle Chitty; Betty Lou Brett; Paige Wood; Judy Miller; Sandra Hopkins.

Prospects were bright for there were a large number of lettermen returning from the unbeaten 1948 squad including All-Conference standouts Tommy Umphlett and Jimmy Williamson. Once in shape, the Indians proceeded to win 8 straight games before losing to the Yellow Jac¬ kets of Elizabeth City by a crushing 19-0 score. Before this loss, the Indians had run up a string of 24 consecutive victories, and prior to the Wil- liamston game the week before, had established an even more impressive record of 13 straight games without being scored upon. Statistics show that Ahoskie scored 264 points to 32 for its op¬ ponents. The Indians, of course, won the Albemarle Conference Championship, Williamston being the only conference opponent to cross the Brave ' s goal line. All this was not accomplished in a day. The Indians were working out in light togs two weeks before school opened, and continued almost every week day until late November. The schedule, in order, included: Tarboro (Class A), Scotland Neck, Hertford, Greenville (Class A), Plymouth, Columbia, Littleton, Willi¬ amston, Elizabeth City (Class A), and Edenton (Class A). The top scoring honors for Ahoskie went to tailback Tommy Umphlett, who scored 120 points. Others who racked up points for Ahoskie were Jimmy Williamson, with 96 points; Pat Jordan, with 24 points; Albert Terry, 12 points; Harding Wood, 6 points; and Charles Earley, 6 points. Good candidates for All-Conference honors as the season ended were Fullback Jimmy Will¬ iamson, Tailback Tommy Umphlett, Glue-fingered End Charlie Sessoms, Dicky Hoggard, a standout at guard, and Ahoskie ' s behemoth tackles, Archie Congleton and Lonnie Phelps. The Indians were about the most stylish team anywhere in 1 949, going to out of town games on Trailway buses. They attended, as a group, the Duke-Wake Forest classic in Durham on Duke ' s invitation. They were outfitted in new black and gold uniform which they alternated frequently with the gold uniforms of the previous season. With the defense of our Conference Cham¬ pionship accomplished, the Indians of 1949 came out with a great season ' s record, a credit to the un¬ tiring efforts by our coaches, and to the best school in North Carolina-Ahoskie High. 39 Phelps TACKLE Karanikas CENTER Godwin BACK Dilday END vflusuy Williamson Umphlett BACK CO-CAPTAIN Wood BACK Terry BACK 40 GUARD Hoggard GUARD of 1343 Vaughn BACK Sessoms Congleton TACKLE CO-CAPTAIN Powell GUARD GUARD CENTER END Half-time of the Elizabeth City game. Wheeeee!! The season got under way in fine style as Ahoskie, playing at home, whitewashed Tarboro in downpour, 24-0. Tarboro was the first of four Class " A " teams which the Indians had scheduled. After two weeks rest, the Indians traveled to Scotland Neck, well " up” for the annual battle, but this time, it was all Ahoskie and the Braves walked away with a 33-0 win. Another Conference game followed, this one with arch-rival Hertford. Again the Indians found the going easy, and scalped the boys from Perqui¬ mans, 45-0. The next game was bally-hooed as the battle of the champions, both Ahoskie and Plymouth meeting in Plymouth undefeated, untied, and unscored upon. There was still no stopping the onslaught, however, Ahoskie winning 40-0. 0011 CH££RL£flD£fiS CENTER: Johnny Young, Mascot; Jewel Jemigan; Jimmy Young, Mascot.

(We won) Greenville, of class " A " status, came to Ahoskie the following week, but was late getting its defense together, and lost 26-0. The Indians had a breather scheduled for the next week against Littleton, but the Indians had to go all out to win by a 19-0 margin. Then the fireworks started. Williamston, the last conference foe of the season, came to Ahoskie and registered a score, the first against Ahoskie, in 43 Think you ' ll catch him? (Columbia) the first period. The Indians rallied later and won 14-6 but the magic spell was broken. f A week later Elizabeth City ' s Yellow Jackets, one of the better teams in the state, came to Ahoskie and knocked the props from under the Indians ' 24 game win-streak, winning 19-0. Finally, the Ahoskie spirit began to flame again, and in the closing game of the season a week later the Indians swept the grid-iron clean with Edenton, winning 30-7 to wind up a highly successful season. By the close of the season 18 players had amassed enough quarters to earn their varsity letter. The football banquet was held on February 1 1th and was greatly enjoyed by all the team.

(Edenton) (After) 45 46 Mr. Young came here in 1 947 Being new to us, he started from scratch and promoted a sound athletic program, through which he brought the Braves out of the red. During the time that he has coached foot¬ ball here he has won 29 games in 32 starts. In championship for class " B " schools. 1948 his undefeated team won the N. C. state The past two years of basketball have brought 30 wins in 39 starts, and two tourna¬ ment championships to his teams. He also coached baseball his first year here. A graduate of Brevard Junior College and E.C.T.C., he put in 4 years of football and 5 years of basketball. He is planning to develop another football team next year despite a lack of lettermen. Mr. Smith, a new comer to Ahoskie, was an able assistant to Coach Young during the football season and is mentor for the girl ' s bas¬ ketball team and the baseball team. A native of Johnston, S. C., and a graduate of Carlisle High School, he received his A. B. degree in Math and Science at Wofford Col¬ lege. At the end of the season Co-Captains, one a lineman, the other a back, were elect¬ ed by the players. The two seniors receiving the honor are pictured here. Arch ie Congleton Tommy Umphlett CO-CAPTAIN CO-CAPTAIN For the 1 950 season the Ahoskie Indians were blessed with a group of talented veterans and pro¬ spects were bright from the start. After several weeks practice the Indians went to Colerain to face one of its best district rivals. The Indians showed off a highly polished offence and defense, winning handily 46-32. Next, the Indians ventured to Aulander which had been designated as the Indian ' s home court and thoroughly whipped Tarboro 40-22. Three days later the Indians began their quest of the Albemarle Conference Title. They went to Williamston and though they held an early lead, dropped behind and lost to the Green Wave 35-26. Then came Scotland Neck whom the Braves scalped 45-33. The hapless Harrelsville squad was next and went down easily 45-15. Hertford also proved to be slight opposition, A H S. winning 44- 25. The following week the Indians took on Wind¬ sor and led by Umphlett with 24 and Hoggard with 15, the Braves brought home the bacon. Only one game was scheduled for the next week, but this one was with the E.C.TJZ. Junior Varsity which outclassed Ahoskie 56-41. Then came Williamston again and sweet revenge. Fight¬ ing into overtime the Indians outlasted the Green Wave 43-41. Next, Hertford visited Ahoskie at Aulander and went down on the short end of 58-35. Umphlett with 22 and Leary with 10 sparked Ahoskie. Shortly after this the Indians met and con¬ quered Chowan College in a great game 38-35. An¬ other game with Harrelsville was no contest, Ahos¬ kie winning 65-22. The E.C.T.C. Junior Varsity visited Ahoskie after this and were hard put to win by 43-35. 49 CLOCKWISE FROM TOP; William Leary, Calvin Toler, Dickey Hoggard, Tom¬ my Umphlett, Albert Vaughn. Jimmy Williamson NOT PICTURED. The Indians then entered the Albemarle Con¬ ference Tourney and were matched with Columbia in the first round. Ahoskie advanced to the finals by swamping Columbia 52-23. Williamston met Ahoskie in the finals, but again the Indians would not be beaten and won 39-36 led by Umphlett with 24 and Toler with 7. Next Chowan College met the Indians 70-46. Regular season play was temporarily forgotten as the Indians entered the state Class " B " Tournament, and whipped Hobucken in the first round at Farmville by a score of 44-29. They advanced to the district semi-finals and edged out a talented Framville team 32-31. In the finals Ahos¬ kie cut down Vanceboro 39-31, to become District I Class " B " champs. Before its tournament play continued, the Indians beat Windsor again 42-33, to end the regular season. The Indians went to Rocky Mount next where they took on Franklinton and won 54-51 on the basis of a scoring surge by Tommy Umphlett, unchallenged in Ahoskie sports history. The 6 ' 2 " center dumped in 40 points that night, followed by Jimmy Williamson with 6. This earned Ahoskie a berth in the finals at Durham, ranked among the very best outfits of its class in the state, despite the fact that it had no home court on which to practice. No higher honor could go to such a fine group of athletes. Details of the contests at Durham will appear in the graduation supplement. 50 FRONT ROW—Left to Right—Calvin Toler, Wil¬ liam Leary, Tommy Umphlett, Dickey Hoggard, Al¬ bert Vaughn.

S eaJon Ahoskie High ' s maidens turned out for bas¬ ketball practice in a big way in December, 1949. Some of them practicing without the facilities of a home gymnasium for the fifth straight season, Coach Jake Smith ' s girls ' first encounter of the year was against Colerain, AHS coming out on the long end of a hard fought game, 47-42. Soon after the holidays, play was resumed with a bounding victory over the Tarboro Sextet to the tune of 48-10. A journey to Williamston handed them their first defeat 44-39, a thrilling game de¬ spite the score! Then came retribution!! A score of 39-12 over Scotland Neck ' s " femmes-fatales " of the hardwood court. Having a schedule that ran in intermittent cycles, it was sheer bravery, in the face of circum¬ stances, to meet, from then on, some of the best teams in Eastern Carolina, several in return games. Losses were to Harrellsville, 57-14; Perqui¬ mans, 40-31; Windsor, 33-19; Williamston, (at " home " in Aulander), 43-35; Perquimans, (home) 43-29; Chowan College (home), 54-40; Harrells¬ ville (home), 52-38; Chowan College, 42-25; and Windsor (home), 40-23. Gone will be most of veterans when the next season rolls around, through graduation and other reasons, so here ' s Three Cheers to a group of girls who never said die, and The Hope that the teams of the future will show the same willingness and fight that the Girls of 1950 have.
