Early in June, we do depart,
Hand in hand, in cap and gownp
We mount the stairs, and do embark
Upon a new career .
We take our places, row on row
With faces stern and troubled heartsi
We step forward with heads bent low.
We prepare to meet the future.
We say goodbye, we shed our tears:
They gave to us
The past tour years.
Let's make the most of it.

Wayne Moore, Jr. and Pamila Davis were selected by the i952
seniors of E.C.H.S. way back in October as their mascots. They will
lead the seniors down the aisle in June to their diplomas and Futures.

those moments. Wayne, lll is the son of Mr. and Mrs. .l.W. Moore, Jr. ,

OUR JUNIOR YEAR
For many years we've made our way,
Racking our brains day after day.
Science, math, and history too
Required hard work to put us through.
Our prom, our play, and our magazine drive
Were quite a success and gave us much pride,
But ordering our class rings was the biggest thrill,
Our hopes and our dreams were about to be filled
Billy Gay McDowell
Sally Wood McMullan
Although we're now in the Eleventh grade,
Our work and worries still don't fade,
But now with this work we have frolics and fun
Our work and play is all tied in one.
And now that the year is almost gone,
We wish to pass this word along,
"Come on Juniors, let's keep up the pace,
Remember we've all got a future to face.

Around the gym, which we will never forget,
To us that dance is the best one yet.

This organization proposes to promote the general welfare ofthe school, to establish a
closer union and to create a greater responsibility among the students.

school and to do those things which it considers will carry out the spirit and the words ot the
constitution of the Student Co-operative Government.
Through the co-operation of the students and the Faculty many things sponsored by the
student council took place this year. Some of the events were: freshman orientation program
and the Freshman dance, Southeastern Assemblies, American Education Week--this included
a chapel program and a radio program in which forty students of the school participated--
l'1OmSCOmlH9, Gnd G Semi-fOfmGl Christmas Dance. The council invited members of the pre-
ceding senior class to attend the dance.
Proiects For the year included: purchase of a record player to be used in the gym or in the
classroom and purchase of silver ladles for the punch bowls, being responsible for the school
concession, preparing elections for the school, and sponsoring a White Christmas for needy
tami I ies .
This year the Student Council Congress was held in Greensboro. Those attending were Miss
Bertha Cooper, advisor, Betty Holland Bell, Anne Gray, and Roy Askew.

For the second year in many years, the
"Loudspeaker" was mimeographed . This was
due largely to an insufficient financial
support of the Student Body. This past year,
we have succeeded in paying old debts,
establishing a good, sound financial basis
For next year, and publishinga good school
The policy of the "Loudspeaker"thispast
year has been to express student opinion and
to stimulate the student body's interest in
the happenings of our school and other
schools. These ends have been achieved by
introducinga Letter to the Editor column,
having a reporter from each homeroom,
and exchanging newspcpers with high schools
all over the country.

One group that certainly does its part for Elizabeth City and the school is The Band. When-
ever anything happens you can be sure the band is taking part.
After a wonderful trip to Atlantic City to take part in the Lion 's Convention this past summer,
all the members could hardly wait for the school year to start. But the band activities started
even before the opening of school in September.
The band has always done its part in football season, marching in pep rallies and parades,
drilling at half-time, playing concerts and helping to support big events that take place here
The military functioning in the band teaches the members to work cooperatively under
their efficient officers and two directors. The band has drawn up a constitution this past year
ancl all the members have approved it.

This year the three outstanding social events of the year were the banquet honoring the
seniors, the annual Christmas party, and a dance given for the cheerleaders and the football
team. lt is hoped that the dance for the football team and cheerleaders can be made into an
annual affair striving to promote a better relationship between the two.
The whole band is looking forward to the state contest which is in the spring and are working
hard to bring home a superior rating.
No other organization is as fortunate as the band to have "Uncle Miles" Clark as their
sponsor and godfather.
No group can be successful without the proper leaders and directors. With Mr. Callaway,
Mr. Rogers, and Uncle Miles urging them on there is no doubt as to the steady progress to rate
among the best bands of the land, not only in spirit and character but also in proficiency.

The Elizabeth City Yellow Jackets played good football considering
the inexperienced players that were on the team. They were hampered
all season by iniuries to key players.
The Jackets had a season record of five wins, five losses, and one
tie . The deadlock came at the hands of the triple A conference football
team from Goldsboro N . C . The final score was Elizabeth O, Goldsboro
O. The Red Raiders from Suffolk, Va. battled the Jackets to o T2 to O
win, but not before the Jackets had given them one of the toughest
battles of the season. The Red Raiders had previously beaten such great
football machines as Maury, Granby and Norview.
Bobby Sawyer, Lindsey Hewitt, and Franklin Wall were selected for
the all conference team. Hewitt was also placed on the all Eastern

As far as the winand loss column is concerned the 51-52 Yellow
Jacket Baslceteers seem far from impressive. However, there were
several enlightning instances to put hope in a strong team for 52-
53. Among these is the fact that the team will lose only six men
this year, compared to last year's team which lost 13 out of 15
lt is true that this year's team lost a great many games, but
the school should still be proud of them, for they played hard and
were fighting to win fill the final whistle was blown. Coach Honey Johnson

When the cheerleaders are being
chosen there are those who get disap-
pointed, but theyshouldn't be discour-
aged. Next time iust trya little harder.
Once you are a cheerleader you never
want to stop, But don't think that there
is no work in cheerleading, because the
more you practice the better you'll be.
To be a cheerleader is something to be
proud of. Remember, though that there 's
work along with the fun you have.

The members of the office staff collect the
absentee lists, run errands, help with the mimeo-
graphing of the newspaper, and other Special work.
Each day a member of the staff takes charge of
the mailing of letters, checks out the mail at the
post office, and makes the daily bank deposits.
These helpers are very important in helping Mr.
Eason and Mrs. Cox carry on the school business.
To take office usually requires one year of typing
and passing all other subjects.
The student librarians
play an important part in the
school, for without them the
library could not run very
efficiently. There are fifteen
liurary assistants and each is
a member of the North Carl-
olino High School Liorary
Association. They attend to
circulation, reference work ,
keep the liorary neat, and
help students select oooks.

The Elizabeth City High Schoot Debating Team con-
sists of two teams , one for the affirmative and one for the
negative side of the question. These compete in a tri-
angle with Hertford and Edenton. The winner of this
contest competes in the first district contest at East

and awide knowledge of world affairs. The team is com-
posed of six members, two of whom are substitutes.
They are coached under the expert guidance of Miss
Boomer and Miss Jackson.
