SETTING .............. E. C. H. S.
TIME: The day we bmi our fi1'SIif7l'jIIfS 111 H30 soil of E. C. H. S.
Walking up to the school that morning made me unusu-
ally happy! It seemed as though all the world was free of
anything that could mar this happiness. That day I had
to pinch myself in order to make sure I was not dreaming!
As I Walked along my memory became like a moving
picture machine. When the film was reflected on the
screen, We saw pictures similar to these: First, there Was
the first day of freshman year when most of us looked
like Indians or, as though we were going to a masquerade
and lacked only the costumes.
Then came our sophomore days which Were filled with
days of Work and yet many an hour of happiness! Wlien
We became juniors the most important things to us were
the Junior Carnival and the Junior-Senior Banquet, in
which We played an important part! We also had the
Junior Play, filled with laughter!

BETTY JANE LEARY GRETCHEN VOETH
JIMMY: Then there was the day we first walked the aisles of the
auditorium as seniors! At first most of us were frightened
and then we saw our younger classmates looking up at us
with a new look of hope on their faces, this thought came
to our minds: "We are leaders and we muSt try with all
that is within us to make the best examples for those who
have faith and confidence in us!"
This is not the end, for we have many more things to look
forward to, such as our Commencement Exercises and our
lifes' work. Most of us will be happy, but within all of
us sorrow will take its place.
Truly our high school days have been happy ones' To
those we leave behind we wish even happier days than
those we have had!

Whew! After all those long tedious years of studyC?j, we've finally
crawled up the ladder of success to be upperclassmen.
Boy, We have come a long way since we were first splashed with per-
fume and smeared with shoe polish when We first entered high school.
I'm so glad we are through struggling with worms, frogs, hypotenuses,
and the Battle of Bunker Hillg but now we'll have to wrestle with
chemistry, physics, and advanced algebra.
Isn't it wonderful to think that our faces, personalities and characters
adorn the honor clubs, i.e., National Honor Society, Hi-Y, Tri-H-Y,
and the Quill and Scroll. We have worked hard to make them.
We surely had a whiz-bang of a junior play!
Remember the hard work and fun of the carnival?
And, um-m we danced ,til dawn in swishing-swirling skirts and
tuxedos on the night of our Junior-Senior.
We've worked hard and had a lot of fung I wouldn't trade my junior

TIME . . When we are 110 longer fbe baby class
of E. C. H. s.
At last we are on our second year in High School! We have been
struggling along for the past ten years. If we continue our struggles,
we will soon reach our goals.
Our class has had the privilege of joining many clubs. Several of our
students have joined the Future Teachers of America Club. Good luck
to those students as future teachers.
Students from our class have taken part in plays, sponsored by the
Dramatics Club. We know that these great actors have had fun
practicing for those enjoyable plays. Others have had fun while fixing
characters' faces, so that the plays were more effective.
Many of us have learned how to operate various machines in the Audio-
Visual Club. This club has helped the school, as well as its members.
Other clubs in which we could have membership were American Junior
Red Cross, Music Club, Travel Club, Athletic Association, Future
Homemakers of America, Glee Club, and SPOTLIGHT Club.
Some of our subjects were biology, algebra, Latin, world history,
science, and English. However, only English and biology were our
required subjects. We shall never forget how we performed the opera-
tions on the various animals in the lab. Some of us will long remember
Julius Caesar, whom we studied about in English and Latin.
Our activity classes were physical ed, SPOTLIGHT, band, shop, home
economics, and' glee club. I
Students, we have just two more years before we shall march down
the isle of graduation! '

TIME . In the midst of final 0.w1n1s
So at last we are through with our first, eagerly waited for year of
high school. Remember when we used to sigh as we watched from
our side of the street? Those lively people looked so happy roaming
around the school grounds. Now that we, too, have been here a year,
we know that we were not deceived with our dreams of high school.
Itas every bit wonderful, though sometimes tough.
Our required subjects for this year were English, Civics, physical edu-
cation and mathematics. We were privileged with choice for general
science, home economics, shop, glee club, band and Latin.
Many members of our class' have participated in many extra-curricular
activities, Junior Red Cross, Future Homemakers of America, SPOT-
LIGHT Club, Speech Club, and numerous others.
The band is well represented with members of the class and there are
quite a number of freshmen in the glee club. Our class should keep up
its wonderful musical spirit..
Many of us are exhibiting school spirit and sportsmanship by playing
baseball, basketball, and football. Good luck to our junior varsity boys
and more power to them next year.
We now dream of prospects for a brighter and merrier time in our
sophomore year. We shall never part with the memories of our dear
old freshman days.

The Student Council of the Elizabeth City High School has sponsored several
outstanding activities during this year. First of all was the wonderful dance given for
the Freshmen on September 30. The next was an assembly program entitled "Beaehhead
for Freedom" which was presented during National Education Week. Everyone felt
that the members of the Council, who took part in this program and helped in other
ways, did an excellent job in making National Education XVeek a great success in our
school. One of the biggest events of this year was the homecoming game played Thanks-
giving afternoon with Hertford at which our council presented a gold cup to the council
of Hertford. Another activity introduced by the council this year which the students
seemed to enjoy most of all was the dances which have been held twice a week in the
gymnasium during lunch hour. The Christmas Holidays just wouldn't be complete with-
out the semi-formal dance given by the council. It was held December 20th in the gym
and portrayed an outside Christmas scene.
Three members of the council, Margaret Ann Jackson, Billy Jennette and Neil
Henderson, along with Miss Cooper, attended the North Carolina State Student Council
Convention in Goldsboro.

STUDENT COUNCIL ACTIVITIES
A memorable event is this shot taken from our annual home-
coming game. This game was played on Thanksgiving Day. Here we
see President Henderson presenting the trophy of friendship.
Always an impressive ceremony is the installation of our new
student council officers which occurs in the late spring of each year.
Secretary Margaret Ann Jackson reads the minutes of the last
Student Council Meeting as fellow members listen.
This is a scene taken from the Student C0uncil's play given during
the observance of National Education Week. The players look very
natural, don't they?

The 1950 staff of the SPOTLIGHT has tried to
bring you a book you will cherish long after your high
school days are far behind you. They have worked
hard and long to edit an annual more beautiful than
its predecessors and one that you can be proud of.
For some years now your annual has been a member
of the Columbia Scholastic Press Association and has
grown in beauty, wisdom and content until its ratings
are very high.
It is the duty of the editorial staff to gather all
material and pictures necessary to compose a good
book. The business staff collects all advertisements and
tends to the financial end of the book and only through
the co-operation of both staffs can the work be done
and the book made a success.

Because it fosters the improvement of speech habits and encourages public speaking the speech club
is of great importance to our school.
During the school term this club sponsors various speaking contests including the High School World
Peace Study and Speaking Programs of 1949-SO and Triangular Debates.
The purpose of the 4-H Club is to give rural young people training in better practices of agriculture
and homcmaking in the broader phases of community organization, and in the finer and more significant
things of life.
The 4-H Club members really have something to look forward to, for there are wildlife camps, fat
stock shows, county achievement day, dress revues, and the National 4-H Congress.
Health, homemaking, agriculture, and wildlife are some of the interesting projects which are dis-
cussed during the year.

Elizabeth City High School's Yellow Jacket
football team fought its way into a second place
tie with the New Bern Bears in the Northeastern
Conference for the 1949 season. Despite injuries
to several key players, the Jackets suffered only
two defeats. The Edenton Aces captured a close
contest, winning fifteen to thirteen. This was the
Aces' first victory over the locals in oven ten
Later in the season the Jackets were trounced
twenty to nothing by the powerful Kinston Red
Devils. All hopes of a conference title were shat-
tered by this loss.
Marvin Gray, right guard and co-captain of
the Yellow Jackets, was selected to play in the
annual Optomist Bowl game at High Point. The
teams were composed of all-star players chosen
from high schools in the eastern and western sec-
tions of North Carolina.

GUR PLAYERS IN ACTION
This year our girls' basketball team really made a good showing
everywhere they played. As always they demonstrated good sports-
manship which is essential for playing any game. The rules of health
were practiced and the girls turned out to make a fine team known
for its clean, hard playing. These girls practiced each afternoon and
when they played they put their whole selves in the game. They made
a fine record of which we should really be proud.
The boys' basketball team has made a splendid record this year.
The boys showed hard, fair play in every game. Teamwork must be
their by-word because it seems that they always work together-none
for glory, but all for the sport. We are proud of the team and their fine
display of teamwork and skill.

City High School Band
has made us all proud of it during the past year.
The organization started its activities even
before the opening of school in September. Among
the big events in which the band participated
were the Hampton Seafood Festival, The Oyster
Bowl Football game at Norfolk, the Wake Forest-
Georgetown football game at Wake Forest and
the Wright Memorial Celebration at Kitty Hawk.
The many local parades show the fine spirit this
group has for its school and town. The band has
always done its part in football season-marching
in the pep parades, drilling at half-time, spurring
the Jackets on to victory. Each of the concerts,
one at Christmas and two in the early spring
proved to be a great success.
No group can be successful without recrea-
tion along with the hard work, and so it is with
the band. This year the two outstanding occasions
were the banquet honoring the seniors and the
Christmas party at which the group forgot their
work and got together to have a wonderful time.
The smooth operation of the band is due to
the fact that it is composed of a group of boys
and girls always willing to co-operate with their
efficient officers and excellent director. To boost
their morale and back them up is their wonderful
godfather, Miles Clark. Under their new director,
Scott Callaway, the band has made steady prog-
ress throughout the year and is continuing its
climb to rate among the best bands of the land
not only in spirit and character but in proficiency.
