Miss Edmundson was our first grade teacher. We learned how to Dehave although it seems that we forgot to, sometimes. We enjoyed our second year very much under the guidance of Miss Blanche Allen, We well remember the aquarium. We shall never forget our third year with Miss Parker, Miss Myrtie Peterson was our fourth grade teacher. She was basketball coach and had little time to spend in the room. That year she had us to demonstrate our singing talent. We must admit some were very poor. We really learned our geograpl: and arithmetic under our fifth grade teacher. Miss Annie Whitford, We experienced our first weiner roast in the sixth grade. Miss Florence Pace taught us how to play soft tall. We gave our best play, " Narcissus. " We will always remember Evelyn Arnold, the main character. In the seventh grade most of us experienced our first slap in school. Miss Fannie Allridge was an old maid and didn ' t have enough patience to contend with the rowdy group. Well, all of us learned more that year than any other. Our eighth grade teacher was Mrs, W.V. Pendleton, a native of Virginia. Of course, we made fun of some of the words she pronounced. Our Freshman year was by no means dull, Mrs. Floyd Hendrix was our homeroom teacher. She taught us practically every subject we took. What would our high school days have been like without Mrs. Hendrix? Believe us our Sophomore year was a " hum-dinger, " Mrs. Charles Tucker, a graduate from Arthur High School, was our home- room teacher. She also taught us science and world history. Boy I She really knew her history or anything she taught. We thoroughly enjoyed having Mrs, Tucker as our teacher. Our Junior year brought about many hardships. Raising funds for the Junior-Senior Banquet was a problem. With donations from Mr, To« Heath it was a swell success. We really were happy to be able to get our class rings. Golly 1 We are Seniors at last. We have enjoyed having MTo Bailey to assist us in all of our activities for this school year. We will alwa;ys remember getting ads for our annual and what a problem it was to get some of the merchant’s help. Our Senior Play was a knockout. Now, as Seniors, when we look back over our school days, we realize that soon it will be over only to remain as a pleasant memory - a memory which wxll go on. THE LAST WILL AND TESTEMENT 1. To all students we wish to leave the happy memory of our good times at Arthur School. 2. The Senior Class leaves to our principal Mr. Bailey the ability to be as good to the Senior Class next year as he has been to us. 3. To the Faculty of Arthur High School we leave our regret that we could not stay with you longer. Uo We the Seniors of 1951 wish to leave all the students the best school of all, Arthur High School. 1. Mattie Pearl Rhodes leaves her temper to Tribly Lee Smith. 2. Lois Jean.Y ainwright leaves her ability to argue with the teachers to Bessie Lee Morgan. Lois Jean also leaves her stoutness to Tiessie Lee. 3o Dorothy Vandiford leaves her well behavior to Nannie Sue Elks and her good grades to Eva Lee Dunn. Uo Peggy Heath leaves to Margaret O ' Neal her ability of dancing on Saturday night. To Becky Allen, she leaves her -ability to date boys. 5 . Pen nie Johnston leaves to Lucille Willoughby her ability to get along with others. 6. Glenn Strickland leaves to Kendred Lewis his ability to play basketball. 7. Sidney Allen wishes to leave to Herman Allen his way with the women. 8o Weldon Earl McLawhorn wishes to leave to David Harris his ability to get married o 9. Vernon Nichols vdshes to leave to J.T. Harris his ability of being slow in schoolo 10, Robert Crawford leaves to Mary Stocks his good grades in school, llo Virginia Dare Dunn wills her ability of being a good cheer- leader to Jean Joyner and best all around girl to Ruth Pollard, 12, Bettie Lou Jones leaves her ability of playing basketoall to Nannie Sue Elks, So in the above manner ' s we, the members of the Senior Class leave our most loved and cherished possessions. Good luck, best wishes and happy sailing, to you we leave at Arthur School, CLASS PROPHESY Bellarthur, in the year 1963, this big modern city still has the friendly inviting atmosphere toward the Seniors of 1951 of Arthur High School, that it had twelve years ago as a little spot with a store here and a store there with the local post office in the back of one of the stores,, Let’s take a stroll down the main street of this city and see if we seen any of the Seniors of 1951. First, we see a healthy looking person who seems to be very energetic and gives the impression of being a " go-getter. " No wonder, for now I see that it is Sidney Allen who, as we recall had ambition from the very beginning. You remember he could read before he was five years old. His hands are full of gauges which he sells for the dashboards of cars. These gauges are his own invention and they register the number of gallons in the gas tank, rather than full, half full, or empty. Now here comes into sight a beautiful yellow Buick convertible. These must be some very ritzy people, for there is a uniformed chauffeur driving. Why, it’s Vernon Nichols , and there sitting beside him is evidently his employer and owner of the car Glenn Strickland. He surely does look prosperous with that monocle at his eye. But who is that in the back seat. Of course one of them is Glenn’s wife, long, thin, sweet- dispositioned and shy Peggy Heath. The loyally devoted and serious person beside her is her old“friend Mattie Pearl Rhodes . The other nice looking yound lady is Bettie Lou Jpnes T They are really havinr? a good time riding in that beautiful convertible with the top thrown back. Here comes the town’s outstanding horticulturist, Pennie Johnston , She, very unusually, attended the state agricultural college and has now developed a new dehydration process that converts friiit into candy. Now we glance across the street and we see a man wearing a raincoat although it ' s a bright and sunny day. There must : e somethj.ng wrong here. No— you recall, in your high school days Robert Crawfor d was one who had many loves. Yet he was known as one who was unlucky in love. So, he finally turned his emotions and mentality toward laboratory reserch and he has now produced a water-resistant, water repellant cotton fibre for raincoats. To cut advertising costs, he always wears one of the coats, rain or shine. These two young womf n coining down the street are Virginia Dunn and Dorothy Vandiford o You recall Virginia always had a taste for mathematics, and she counts money at the Bank of BellarthuTo Dorothy is basketball coach for Mr,, Bailey, who is still principal at Bellarthur. Now we come to a neSit looking place and it has a beautiful sign with the name of " Bellarthur Cafe " . Mr,, and Mrs. Weldon McLawhorn operate this cafeo MrSo McLawhorn, the former Jean Cayton, can cook as good a steak as anyone could ask for. Well, look at this magnificent home right here on Main Street, It is one of the most beautiful, and modern home we ever saw. On the door is a gold plate bearing the name of Miss Lois Jean Wainwright, Let ' s stop in for a short visit to see our friend o Best oressea Most Studious Wittest Best Looking Qmitest Most Likely To Succeed Most Atheletic - COMPLIMENTS OP THE FOLLOWING BUSINESS FIR M S VISIT US WHEN AT GREENVILLE: C.
