The first .step of educa- tion in this section was a private school of Professor Sheep's called the Atlantic Collegiate Institute. In 1907 he gave up this private school for the graded school of which he was superintendent. Because of his in- terest and forioardness, E. C. H. S. emerged from the private school and is ours today.

Being eighth graders still didn't stop us from looking like little indians as we wandered through the halls trying to find our way around this new place of knowledge. When we became freshmen the pleasure was all ours to create more indians. School days went pretty smooth through our freshmen year when we were given the privilege of first taking part in club activities. Our sophomore year ran in pretty much the same trend as our freshmen year. Things really began to happen during our junior year of school. Not only did we start tak- ing part in many more extra-curricular activities, but we also spent good times and hard work raising money for our junior-senior dance, which after many votings, was decided to he open to juniors and seniors only. The place for our junior-senior dance was also out of the ordinary. lt was at a friend's summer house, Whitehall. We sold magazines, showed moving pictures, pre- sented the play, "Professor, How Could You? and had a very successful junior carnival. Now we have reached the top rung of the ladder where lies our position as seniors. Here we have inherited the senior privileges and respect of the underclassmen. VVe have successfully edited The Loudspeaker and THE SPOTLIGHT and presented our last play "Love Song." Dur- ing this year we were the host for the State Student Council Congress, which was a great honor and we think, carried through well. Soon we will be donning our caps and gowns which will be our last act together as a class. Though our high school days will be gone forever, we will always carry many pleasant memories with us wherever we go-the class of '48.

' I'1'cr1s1l1'r"I' VVe, the class of 1949, having only one more year of high school ahead of us, look fondly back on the past years and ahead to our senior year. In the eighth grade we entered high school, wide-eyed and bewildered, for the first time. How- ever, we soon became accustomed to our new surroundings and settled down to enjoy every minute of our high school career. As freshmen we were given the privilege of initiating the new eighth graders. This year also brought forth our first opportunity to join certain clubs and take part in other activities. Also we had our first taste of real high school subjects. In our sophomore year we felt even more a part of E.C.H.S. and began to wonder how the school ever got along without us. After all, many of the officers of school organizations came from our class and the sophomores were quite outstanding on the athletic fields. This year we have the honor and the hard Work of the Junior play, the Junior Carnival, and the Junior-Senior dance. Then, too, there are the clubs We are at last eligible to join if We have what it takes, i.e. brains, for the National Beta Club and brains plus a Christian character for the Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y Clubs. Also, for those of us who have done outstanding work on the publica- tion staffs, there is the Quill and Scroll Club. Those of us who were fortunate enough to need plane geometry are trying to get by with perseverence. NVe are Ending that American History is fascinating, that Spanish and French are both Greek to us, and that we must learn the same things over each year in English. XVe may be seen anywhere you happen to look around the school for we are in the band, glee club. on the athletic teams, and members of clubs. We are the Juniors!

Due to the addition of the twelfth grade we have been the youngest class in school for two years. We were given the privilege of initiating the freshmen the first two days of school. XVe were well represented in the freshman-sophomore clubs and we also had members on the Lozulspmker and SPOTLIGHT staffs. A few of us kept order in the halls while serving on the Safety Patrol. We sophomores are really interested in music. About one-fourth of us are in the band and there are quite a number of us in the glee club. Our leading outside activity was the Teen Tavern. There we danced, drank cokes, and for some of us, participated in the programs. We came to the school dances too, and at all the ath- letic games we cheered our teams to victory Cusuallyl. Plus taking "reading, 'riting, and 'rithmeticn we had to take biology, physical education, band or glee club, home economics, world history, or Latin. lt was quite a busy year for us, but the idea of being a sophomore made it one of the best years of our lives.

T reasurer On the fateful day of September 5, 1947, the town of Elizabeth City thought that it had in- herited quite a number of scare-crows, as the freshman class donned in their initiation paint were dismissed after experiencing Elizabeth City High School for the first time. A few nights after school had begun the gymnasium was very beautifully decorated for a dance given by upper-classmen in honor of the freshmen. Not only did we have parties to attend, but we had Latin, English, algebra, Civics, and science which had to be done before the oncoming day. XVe also had physical education, glee club, and band which was something to look forward to in the line of fun and recreation. The freshman class was very proud to have quite a number of players on the junior varsity team that was one of the most outstanding jayvee teams in the surrounding counties.

Roy RUSSELL ,...., ...... D irector MR. Mums CLARK ...... ...... S ponsm' Composed of one hundred members strong, the Elizabeth City High School Band is a credit to the school, community and state. For topping all honors achieved by this organization is the selec- tion of the band by the Lion Clubs to represent North Carolina at the national convention in New York July 1948. With emphasis on the spectacular, the specialities of the band include: in music, primarily that of marches, and on parade, accentuated with color and glamour, the execution of difficult maneu- vers. Laurels have been heaped high on this organization and they are well deserved. The perfection that this group achieves in music and on parade is the result of hard work of each of its members, its director and godfather.

Invited by Wake Forest, the band attended the Wake Forest-Duke Home- coming Game. Also they participated in the Shrine Benefit Game in Norfolk, Virginia. The smooth functioning of the band is largely the result of its being run on a military system headed by twenty-four oilicers. Highlights of a busy band members calendar would include: fall-football games, spring- farewell banquet honoring departing seniors, summer-band camp-ten days of work and play at Nags Head, and at any date during the year, because it is civic-conscious, it is in concert and the band is on parade!

Each afternoon for an hour during school, they can he seen prac- ticing their old twirls and learning new routines. It's worth that practice plus much more to be able to experience the thrill a majorette gets on parade. Page Sixty-Eight MHLHIES lllllllllll COACH 'KH0NEY,' JOHNSON All had questions in their minds about the strength of this year's team. And every day they looked for signs in answer to their dreams. A surprise came to nearly all that night on the Hertford field, When the Jackets played real team ball to win a twenty to nothing yield. Scotland Neck they had next to play after Hertford's great defeat, And as before they fell to the dust before the Jackets' feet. To see the Little Blues cross the goal the Jackets have yet to see, But the feat for us was easy you know, and we racked up fifty-three. We finally beat Kinston thirteen to six, but we nearly had a tie. Both teams had scored six points apiece and the end of the game was nigh. In order to score we tried a sleepy pass which was the winning trick, And the Kinston boys gave in to us for they knew we had them licked. Left: Dr. John H. Bonner, team physician, Robert Brewer, jayvee coach. Right, left to right: co-captains: Bruce Reynolds, Clarence Castellowg managers: Trim Aydlett, Eugene Castellow, John Burgess. Page Seventy The Greenville Greenies were no match for our team which was rising to the top, And our well trained boys just moved straight ahead and never seemed to stop. When at last the final whistle had blown we had rolled up thirty-four And while the Jackets were doing this the Greenies made a zero score. With nothing but victories in our past and with spirits high as could be, We saw our hopes torn down at last in a game we all feared to see. The Pam Pack dealt this deadly blow, the first to whip our team And this eighteen to seven defeat you know destroyed our conference dreams. On every hand we heard said that the Jackets were in decline, But the winning game with the Rapid boys put that thought from everyone's mind. The game was not so very close-a thirteen to zero win, As the Jackets strove hard to be on top and not to be a once-has-been. Now many thought Trinity would be pretty tough, Since they had nearly beat Washington High, but one thing is sure they had enough, The score-nineteen to zero tells why. Tarboro would be a push-over so the paper said. Well that night the Tigers were on the ball, or our team had a swell head. And if it was swell head you can be pretty sure That the twelve to six score proved to be the cure. The New Bern Bears moved straight ahead strong at the start of the game. They took a seven point lead over us and held us with no gain. Then all of a sudden we broke loose to score a needed six, But still the game was nearly o'er and we were in a fix. The Jackets knew they were on the spot be- cause they could only play a minute, So they rammed through a last hard drive and came out on top to win it. In the first half Edenton made it look pretty bad when they got a six point lead. But in the last half we gained twenty which was more than we did need. Craddock wasn't able to cover much ground as they tried time and again to run, And when the game was o'er at last they had six to our forty-four. Even when many seasons have passed at last our memories will linger long, And to our eyes will come a glow when we hear their battle songg So here's to the Jackets of this year, a team that will never die, Let's take Oli' our hats to this fighting team of good old E. City High. ELIZABETH CITY YELLOW JACKETS A W ,,, . A,,,.,., ,.- -.an et f Kneeling, left to right: C. J. Cuthrell feenterl, Sanford Xvhitehurst fright endl.
