C. I E5 . . 7k lil ' DEDICATICDN The true spirit of friendliness is fully exemplified by Mr. Edgar E. Bundy. ' For four years we have been warmed by his sympathetic and helpful service and by his expert guidance. lntense interest in education has not narrowed his views in other fields. His highly benevolent and understanding disposition has made him a confidant of many. Now after seven years of faithful service, he is leaving us, and although it makes us feel very sad to see him go, we con- sider it a privilege to go with him. Thus we dedicate our hearts, as well as this book, to our loyal friend and counselor, Mr. Edgar E. Bundy. ELIZABETH CITY HIGH SCHOOL FoREvvoRD O For four years we have been together in high school and now, as graduation approaches, We the Class of l94l, prepare to part and make our Way along the paths that will lead us to our places in the World. ln the follow- ing pages, We have endeavored to put into word and picture a resume ot our last year of carefree school life and childish pranks. We sincerely hope that We may re- live them in the future as We pick up this book and turn its pages. 5 I mx ss 21 mf rm mu, :YB -- 5,5-55j::::: :, T - fv- mn L4 mn as an Q , . wh, m.v,.,S.

CLASS PROPHECY Q May 25, 1946. Dear Charles: Do you remember the promise we made each other graduation day, that on the fifth anniversary of our graduation we should write each other, telling what had become of our classmates? Well, I am fulfilling my part of the bargain, and below are some of the crafts, industries, and professions that the class of 1941 are engaged in. Would you believe it? Allen Berry, Iames Brinson, and Ioe White are all at the top in pro football, while Charles Iones has made good in Army Air Corps. lust last week he was made a lst Lieutenant. Do you remember Homer Bell? He is now a building contractor and is making good use of his woodworking ability. Elsie Scott, Wilson Waldorf, and Harvey Winslow have kept up their musical training and now all have their own dance bands. Lonnie Hill, has his own "Hill-Billies" and is now on a nationally known radio network. Bethel Burgess is still singing with him. Bill Cox has made a name for himself in Chemistry, by developing a new synthetic rubber. Collaborating in the discovery was his able assistant William Brothers. Tilling the soil are Rufus Voliva, Edwin Ferebee, Elwood Sawyer, Malachi Burgess, and Charles Brown. Each has married and settled down on his own farm. Gertrude Fearing and Gloria Avent are still up to their old tricks and are flirting from one man to another-perhaps, they will settle down some day. lt seems as though most girls want to get to Hollywood, as you probably remember our class was no exception. However, our class was fortunate because Millicent White, Hazel Perry, and Iessie Thurecht all have made the grade and are now stage and screen stars. Iean Bundy, Myrtis Pugh, Annie Blades, and Hilda Beals all made vows to love, honor, and obey and now are happily married, raising families of their own. Virginia Lee Commander is also considering married life, but can- not decide whether to give up singing and marry Tommy Griffin or keep on with her career. Elma lune Midgett, Mary lean Gossard, and lnez Chappell have gradu- ated from training and are now Registered Nurses. l can never forget the members of the Spotlight Staff. Remember how we used to work and wrangle and put off? l suppose our training did do us some good. l picked up the Annual last night and looked at some of "Snookie" Guirkin's sketches. "Snookie" is now an artist and designer for one of New York's biggest department stores. l am society editor for a large Carolina newspaper, and as you have told me, Charles, you are editor and owner of a newspaper, so we did learn something working on the Spotlight. Billy Selig now has a large camera store and has a line that makes his talk on high school seem like nothing at all. Iudson Wood also has gone in CLASS PBOPI-IECY fContinuedJ for photography. Billy West is district manager of Western Union and has worked himself up the ladder of success. I Went to New York City on an assignment last month and who do you think I ran into on the street but Carolyn Massey, who is a buyer for Belk- Tyler Co. She said she had just seen a fashion show with Audrey Armstrong, Corinne Emery, and Virginia Liverman in it as models. Several of the de- signers were old classmates of ours. They were Iohn Hughes, Marius Owens, and Norman Skiles. Later we met Katherine Forehand and Eleanor Forbes who had just come out of Macy's. We asked them to go with us to the new night club just opened by Glover Grice and Aubrey Sample. As we stepped into the taxi we recognized the driver as "Meat" Simpson, and as we stopped in front of the club who should come to escort us in but "I-Ii pocket" Ienningsl Then Dawn Hettrick and Glennell Turner surprised us by showing up as hat check girls. As we drifted towards the bar we noticed "Pint" White talking to a couple who turned out to be Mr. and Mrs. Fearing Beals, the former Martha Louise Stevenson. We were finally lead to a table by the head waiter, Willis Owens. lust as the lights were dimmed the Master of Ceremonies ap- peared, and who should he be but Harry Long! He began to tell us, "Tonight we have with us a dancing team that has made its way to the top. Come on out "Elly" Fearing and C. O. McMullan and show the folks what you can do!" I was never so startled in all my life! More home folks! After this number, a chorus of girls came on who had been billed as "The Most Glamorous Girls in New York City." We recognized among them Alma Cuthrell, Virginia Hodges, Elizabeth Midgett, and Bernice Kight, all of whom have turned into first rate glamour girls. Later, I returned to my hotel room and before going to bed I decided to look over the morning paper. As I unfolded it a familiar face appeared on the front page. Above this picture was written "Harvard Professor to Lecture at City Hall Tonight." I never thought "Ikey" Perry would really be one, but my eyes didn't deceive me. His ambition was achieved at last! The caption went on to say "Accompanying him are his secretary, Miss lune Page Ward and co-secretary Miss Marian Belle Humphlett." You can depend on "Ikey" to need two girls to help him instead of the usual one. As I turned the page my eyes fell upon an advertisement of a reducing salon. It had just been opened by Mlle. Carolyn Munden. Dorothy Twiford was her backer, financially, and her helper, too. I flipped the pages until I came to the sports page. Baseball season, ho-hum, is in full swing. I-Iere's Clayton Morrisette pitching for the Yankee's with Lloyd Williams and Brantley Sawyer in the outfield for the Philadelphia Athletics and Sam Williams on lst for Cin- cinnati. Paul Morris and Thomas Owens are owners of the Yanks now. Don't ask me how that happened because I don't really know. I then turned to the Society Column to find that Gwendolyn Iackson and Evelyn Etheridge are attending one of the fashionable Interior Decoration schools here in New York. Then I went to bed. My train pulled into Raleigh the next evening. I saw a parade coming so I stopped to watch. As I was standing there I heard some one talking with a cute little lisp. I knew immediately that it was Maude Lee Eaper and she was talking to Alberta Meads and Berta Mae Rhodes, so the "snooper" in me made me listen in. She was saying, "And he and I got it in E. C. I-I. S. for the most dependable and now he's Mayor of Raleigh." So that's who this parade was for! Iohn D. Parker had just been elected Mayor! Well, wonderfull The parade was in front of me now and I recognized him sitting on the top of a CLASS PROPHECY tContinuedJ big car, smiling, and waving with Lucille McPherson on one side and Marjorie Owens on the other. They must have been his secretaries, both of them, 'cause he's in heavy politics now. I suppose that you are beginning to think most of our classmates went to New York with Glover Grice and Aubrey Sample when they opened their night club. At first, I thought the some thing. I-Iowever, I later found out that this was far from true. Mary Frances Parker stayed in Elizabeth City and now helps her husband with his automobile business. Wilson Holloman is going to open on insurance office this summer, after his marriage to Kathleen Bray. l bet you could never guess who is head of the City Council-none other than Iames Dickerson. Not satisfied with this, he now has his eye on a seat in the House of Representatives at Raleigh. Iuanita Copeland is private secre- tary to the federal judge of Pasquotank County. Over at the Coast Guard Station on Riverside, is Clifton Burgess. l-le joined up during the War scare, right after graduation, and now he is a first class gunner's mate. Several of our girls decided that they could make as good use of their commercial training in Elizabeth City as in a big city, so they found employ- ment with local concerns. Hilda Anderson and Margaret Swain are stenogra- phers at Citizens' National Bank, while Irma Iackson is the new typing teacher at our dear old Alma Mater. Tom White opened up ct studio on Main Street about a year ago and has CI thriving business for a young artist. Lorena Basnight tends to the busi- ness end of his studio. Oh! I almost forgot to tell you about Elvin Waters and Margaret Basnight. I saw Margaret the other evening. She was home on vacation. At the present time she is employed as governess for one of the Senator's children in Washington, D. C. Elvin Waters plays a guitar in a well known string ensemble over WTAR every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday evenings. I am afraid I have rambled on too much now, so I shall close. ' Sincerely, MARTHA. O HISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS O In the fall of 1937, a group of green Freshmen entered the forbidding Walls of Elizabeth City High School. Those Freshmen were the present Seniors. We were given a cordial welcome by the Sophomores-at least, that's what they called it. Soon we settled down and elected our class officers. They were: President, Iohn D. Parker, Vice-President, Myrtis Pugh, and Secretary- Treasurer, Martha Pinner. Then, in September, 1938, we became glorified Sophomores! It was our turn to initiate and we took advantage of it. It was hard for us to believe that we had ever been as green as those Freshmen. Finally, the novelty wore off and we let the lower classmen have peace and rest. The next year, 1939, we realized that we were Iuniors! We turned all our attention toward making our Iunior year a success. The following officers were elected: President, Earl Iennings, Vice-President, Martha Pinner, Secre- tary, Myrtis Pugh, and Treasurer, Mae Guirkin. One of the main events of this year was the lunior carnival for which we worked many long hours. Then came the night of nights-the Iunior Senior banquet and dance at the Virginia Dare Hotel. Mr. W. A. Worth was our toastmaster and our enter- tainment consisted of a black-faced skit by two new students, Moody and Iackson Presley. Afterwards, the Iuniors and Seniors danced to the music of Hal Thurston. Finally came the last lap in our high school education, our Senior year. We were all given the senior privileges and after settling down to serious work, we elected our class officers. They were President, Samuel Williams, Vice-President, Elbert Fearing, Secretary, Martha Pinner, and Treasurer, Charles Iones, Ir. From our Senior class was elected Iohn D. Parker as Presi- dent of the Student Body and Millicent White, another Senior, served as secretary of the Student Council. Out of four standing committees in the Council, three of the chairmen were selected from the Senior Class. Samuel Williams, Martha Pinner, and Millicent White. The majority of the staff of "The Loudspeaker" were seniors, Charles Lane, Editor, Martha Pinner, assistant editor, and Bill Cox, business manager. The "Spotlight," our class annual was also edited by Charles Lane, the as- sistant editors being Millicent White and Myrtis Pugh, with Willis Owens as the capable business manager. While these journalists were working on the annual, the dramatists of the class were rehearsing the senior play, "Don't Take My Penny." The leading lady was lean Bundy, the directors were Miss Mary Owens and Mrs. Howard Garriss. Our Baccalaureate sermon was delivered by the Bev. I. L. White, Ir., and was held in the new S. L. Sheep School auditorium. For class night the seniors, under the able direction of Miss Catherine Davis and Miss Iean Smith, presented "Education Triumphant" with Myrtis Pugh as the "Spirit of Education." Then graduation!! ' The time for parting has come. We must now separate and go our sepa- rate Ways. To all those who have been so influential in shaping our high school career, we say, "adieux." ' MYRTIS PUGH, MILLICENT WHITE, Class of 1941. THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT CP Tl-IE SENICB CLASS CF 1941 O We, the Seniors, being sound ot mind and body and having dutifully done enough work to make the grades necessary to graduate, do make and declare this to be the Last Will and Testament ot the Class ot '4l.
