THE CLASS OF ' 49 For twelve years we have struggled along this happy road of learning, But now we must leave you behind for our road is slightly turning. We came to Brogden early, and we came to Brogden late. In order that some sweet day we might graduate. We came to school nearly everyday, tried not to miss a one. For to stay out of school wasn ' t so much fun. We came to school to learn to write, and to read and spell. And also how to cook and sew, and to be housewives as well. We came to learn to make good friends, and to have lots of fun. For after all, when we graduate, our life has just begun. We, the class of forty-nine, say to our teachers and principal too. Thanks for being so good and kind, and for such a friendship as we ' ve found in you. And when each one of us walks along the way. Let us make it a more beautiful place to stay. So we the Seniors of Forty-nine, Say Farewell to you we are leaving behind. 10

CLASS HISTORY Twelve years ago about forty bright little faces made their first appear- ance at Brogden School. Cf the forty, only seven have remained to the end. They are: Ruth Smith, Jean Dudley, Audrey Beaman, David John Overman, Clarence Casey, Jack Basden, and William Wiggins. The others have entered in the grades, or in high school. After our first years of reading, writing, and arithmetic, we were pushed on to high school by our very faithful teachers. We started our high school years with an enrollment of twenty-three eager Freshmen. Our Freshman year started off with a bang with our new teacher Miss Mildred Flowers, who later became Mrs. Fred Meacham. We were able to accomplish a lot of work this year, besides all our good times. We sponsor- ed several parties. This year also brought to the girls, the Future Home- makers of America Club, One of the highlights of the year was a hayride and a wiener roast, followed by a trip to the movies. We were chaperoned by several of the high school teachers. When we entered our Sophomore year, under the leadership of Miss Novella Duke, we missed several faces. They were Mary Ann Pearsall, Fanettie Wiggins, George Jones, Arlene Hudson, George Hatch and Kenneth HoUoman. This year was marked by various accomplishments and achievements, various failures and defeats, but we all ceime through. We took pleasure in carrying the " Daisy Chain " , and some of us hacTa most enjoyable trip with the Seniors to Washington D. C, In the fall of 1947, we happily entered our Junior year. We were guided through the struggles of Junior -life by Mrs. Ralph Epps. This was another year we enjoyed to the fullest. Under the direction of Miss Duke, our Junior Play, " Everybodys Crazy Now ' , was a big hit. One notable event of this year ' s activ- ities and one which is a pleasant memory was the Junior-Senior Banquet, given in the Home Economics Department with the help of our sponsor, Mrs. Ralph Epps. The Junior Career Day was another great success and enjoyed by all. Other activities of every sort crowded this year and it sped by all too swiftly. We entered our Senior year with Miss Duke who had been our teacher in the tenth grade. We missed two faces that had greeted us through the years. Myrtle Best and Tommy Scott. One of our big boys said, " Why should we work? We are going to graduate anyway " , but we soon learned better and at last settled down to work. As a result, we were able to do big things this year. We sponsored several parties and a hayride. We had a most enjoyable trip to Raleigh to see the inauguration of the Governor, and our Senior play, " Speak For Yourself Joan " , under the direction of Miss Duke, was a great success. This year every activity in which Seniors have been prominent seemed to blossom forth and to be really worthwhile. We enjoyed to the fullest our invitation to the East Carolina Teachers College. 11
