ORGANIZATIONS FEATURES OUR BOOSTERS
Elizabeth City High School is the
fulfillment of the vision of Professor
S. L. Sheep. 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.

in the baclcgrozmd of school life, yield ll powerful influence in thc

work. Among their nzfmy i1n11o1'tanl rlutivs is that of their choice of
faculty. As a result H10 present faculty nzmnbers of ECHS are tm-

The kind and understanding manner of Mr.
McCracken has endeared him to the student

looks with care upon the students
filing through her halls and engulfs
them in an atmosphere of scholarly
comradeship. Though her realm is

Upon entering high school our class was the first to be eighth graders rather than fresh-
men due to the adoption of twelve grades the year before. 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
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.

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!

XVe, the Class of '50, hnally have a class belo'v us. 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.

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.

This organization is made up of one hundred students. There are two regular classes in thc
morning and on Tuesday and Thursday the boys meet. Full rehearsals are held on Wednesday
night in the band room.
The Glee Club is progressing more each year and has gained much fame under its director,
Mrs. E. F. Aydlett, Jr.
A newcomer to the town and school is Mr. Russell
with a wealth of experience behind him: it is he who
wields the baton and makes music.
"Uncle Miles," as he is affectionately called by the
members, is the band's sustainerg it is to him the band
owes its existence and for him it is the fulfillment of

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-
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. Gruelling hours are spent in practice not only on instruments but also
on the field.

These are the ones who head the two sections
that compose the band. The majorette corps in
front vies with the band members in giving
scintillating performances. Yet, there is a oneness
in each division doing its best.

Perhaps more in evidence than at any other time is the band during football season. ln attend-
ance at all home games and at the majority of out-of-town games, the playing of the band spurs
the Jackets on to victory. 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!

These are the girls who are seen strutting and twirling in front of our band. They
are the idols in all little girls' hearts. Being a rnajorette just doesn't mean praise and
fun but also Work. 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.
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
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
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.
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
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
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
That the twelve to six score proved to be the
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.

Many outstanding events occur during the half of the football games. At this game the movie
star, Temple Texas, was an added attraction.
The gridiron. itself, provides the most excitement. Here, in the opening minutes of the game.
Elizabeth City elects to kick off-the Victorious Yellow Jackets on the move.
The half is the time when thesblayers rest and the band takes over. This shows one of their
many intricate and interesting maneuvers.
No uniformity appears in this divi-
sion for here are gathered varied
treasures. Outstanding personalities,
memorable events and informal
snapshots are parts that compose
the whole of school life.
