Miss Ebberson was our first teacher and she taught us the way to behave and how to get a- long with our fellow students. Miss Allen, Miss Parker, and Miss Thomason were our next teachers. They were very helpful in guiding us to reach our goals. When we were in the fifth grade we learned that we must get all of our homework in. Miss Woodward was our teacher and she really knew how to handle a yard-stick. Some one was whipped most everyday. Miss Pace, Miss White, Mrs. Fry, Mrs. Clark, Mrs. Forrest, Mrs. Hollowell, and Miss Humbles had the pleasure of teaching us in our last years of grammar school, and decided wheather or not we were capable of entering high school. As Freshmen, we learned the way to study, and we had plenty of (Studying to do. In the 9th grade we had the hardest courses in high Ischool. Mr. Cashwell, Mrs. Hendrix, and Mrs. McArthur were our advis- ors. We had a hard time that year with Mr. World History, Mrs. Bl- blegy, and Master Algebra. Our Sophomore year was not so dull, because Bobby Bennett joined our class. Mrs. Hendrix and Mr. Cashwell came back for another year Iwith us. Mrs. Pendleton left the eighth grade and came into high school to teach us French and English. Our Junior year we had only fourteen classmates. We had all kinds Df fun making money for our Junior-Senior Banquet. Our class present- sd a " Negro Womanless Wedding. " We were overwhelmed with compliments Df the play. Mr. Bailey, Mr. Tew and Mrs. Tucker Joined us this year land we really enjoyed typing under Mr. Tew and U.S. History under Mr. (Bailey. Some of us Juniors took part in the senior play which was a ithrilling success, thanks to the assistance of Mrs. Tucker. i Oboy J The year that we thought would never come is here. Yes. Seniors at last J This year was full ©f fun and excitement. Mr. Bailey vas back with us again and we love every inch of him. With their cindness and patience; Mr. Zeh, Mrs. Woods, and Mrs. Tew have also lelped us to complete this, our last year. We had much fun asking for ids to put in our yearbook, because it is bigger and better than be- fore. This year, we have only eleven classmates, and we were always ' eady to help with any little thing that Mr. Bailey asked us to do. )ur Senior Play was every thing that we expected it to be. Now, as Seniors, when we think back over our twelve years Journey m the road to graduation, we begin to realize that soon it will be !»ver to remain Just a memory - a memory which will live on, as a burning ember. LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT We, the graduates of ' 50 are proud that we have been able to com- plete, successfully, our twelve years here at Arthur High School, but we are not too fond by the nearness of the time when we shall have to say good-bye. Some of us wjll continue our studies in higher fields; while others will face the future and make the best of it, thankful for the education received here in Bellarthur. Now we realize that we shall have to leave, and accordingly we wish to leave to our successors those qualities that have guided us to become Seniors and to complete our Senior year.

Signed: The Graduates of 1950 CLASS PROPHESY The sun rises again over the modern, hustling little city of Bellarthur - truly a picture of progress and prosperity. Let’s look in on the graduates of 1950, for they helped to make it so. See that imposing structure across the street? That’s the First National Bank of Bellarthur, and there’s the president going in the door now. Who would have thought that Harper Rasberry would have made the grade and become a bank president? Ahi What a lovely lady that is walking down the street. One can tell at a glance that she is a business woman, and successful too. I -JVhy it’s Ellen Lloyd J I Above the noise of the busy street can be heard another sound. ! The roar of the motors of a large passenger plane fills the air. The plane is one of many belonging to Pan-American Airways, which has a I branch in Bellarthur. President of this local branch is none other than our old classmate Roland Young. That’s a shiney new patrol car Cpl. Bill Erwin is driving. We understand that Bill has a fine record in Highway Patrol work. Criminals had better watch out when he gets on their trail. II In case you re interested the new patrol car we spoke of came from Auto Sales Co., which is owned and operated by James Gurganus. He is justly proud of the company’s good name and large volume of business it does. As we make our way along the crowded streets, we come to the hospital. It is a great asset to the vicinity, and our own Ardeen McLawhorn is superintendent of nurses here. Her husband cares for the children. Working here, also is Alma Daniels who has won wide acclain for her outstanding work in the nursing profession. But Frances Crawford ' s achievements will not be overshadowed by anyone else ' s. She is a famous dietition and has her headquarters here. A taxi pulls up to the curb in front of a fashionable res- tuarant. Out steps Adm. Henry Dunn dressed in the uniform of the Navy, and escorting a beautiful blonde. Let us walk on till we come to a familiar landmark - one which we all love and cherish, Arthur High School. Although it has been remodeled and has all the facilities of a modern school, it still : looks familiar. Virginia Crawford is the basketball coach now and I they have a championship team. And last, but not least, there ' s Oscar Hodges who lives in a : small house in the suburbs. He is a professional writer and world 1 traveler. He expects to publish another book soon, which is an ac- ; count of his travels in China. Well, we have seen what the graduates of ' 50 are doing. Now in 1960, we have tangible evidence that those graduates built their [careers and lives upon solid foundations. Bravo i Three cheers for I the graduates of 50.
