Since this book is a sketch of our twelve years in striving together on this long journey toward our highest ideals, we have chosen E Odyssey as the name of our book. "I am at part of all that I have met."

For the first few weeks, high school was a little confusing for the most of us, but we finally caught on to changing classes and learned our way around. The homeroom teachers for the A and B sections were Mrs. Robert Colson and Miss jane Beachum, respectively. Anne Ewing returned to be with us again, after an absence of several years. Fred Henry, the athlete of the class, came from Rockingham to join us. We enjoyed our year of Health and Physical Education under Miss jane Beachum and our year of English under Miss Margaret Wayne. But what most of us enjoyed a great deal was our second semester of math under Mrs. Frances Leggett. We liked everything about high school except that thing called exams. We were all very glad when the summer vacation came, because we had all worked hard to achieve success. In the fall of '47 we returned again to the famed Ellerbe High School. This year we were sophomores, which Mr. Little informed us meant "wise fools." The task of getting our schedules arranged was not so difficult as the previous year. Second year math was not to be required. We were all so overjoyed that only a few took math, but Lhe rest regretted it later in the year. Everyone enjoyed Miss Thrift's biology class and especially on days when we went to the lab to dissect earthworms, frogs, fish, starfish, and other things. jean Frazier enjoyed this more than anyone else in our class except Edith Greene who hung out the window during the process of undressing the frogs. We were snowbound at home for about two weeks after Christmas, but of course we enjoyed making up the lost time on Saturdays. Armie Kate Lentz and Leatha Greene left us this year. Our junior year was filled with exciting events. We enjoyed preparing and giving a play entitled "Here Comes Charlie" under the direction of Miss Margaret Wayne. The junior-Senior Banquet was the highlight of the year. We entertained the seniors at Sidney's Grill in Rockingham. lack Frazier had the mumps and wasrdetained at home. The honor of being marshalls at the Baccalaureate sermon, the Class Night exercises and the Commencement exercise was bestowed upon eight of our classmates, who were Ruby Terry, jean Frazier, Anne Ewing, Ann Hunter, Peggy Harris, Margaret Ussery, Mary Ann Nicholson, and Meredith Bynum. We missed Bobbie Greene very much this year. She attended Central High School in Charlotte but returned to be with us in her senior year. Worth McNair joined us while she was away. The B section had lost several members of their class in the last few years, among them were Addie Belle Melton, Edward Floyed, Margaret Lefler, and Annie Mae Cox. The first day of school for us as seniors was one very different from the three previous ones. We had a new principal and several new teachers - three of them men. We were all proud of our new coach, Mr. Lauffer. Mr. Howard McCallister was our senior teacher. We enjoyed the year with him immensely amid his many lectures. We appreciated him most of all because of his efforts in helping us get an annual, the first the school had ever had. The A and B section were combined into one and we had a lot of fun working together. We elected as our class officers the following: President, Peggy Harris, Vice-President, William Howell, Secretary, jean Frazier, Treasurer, Pal Williams, and Historian, Ruby Terry. Several of our classmates decided they'd rather marry than finish school. Among them were Edith Green, Annie Mae Greene, and Anne Hunter. We also regretted that Larry Hogan wouldn't graduate with us. He attended a military school in Alabama. As each day rapidly slips away, we think back over the joys and the sorrows that we have shared together in the past twelve years, and it is with remorse that we approach our graduation date of May 26, 1950, and the end of our Odyssey.

He told me that Pal Williams is head of the Construction Company that is build- ing a bridge from New York to Liverpool, England. After leaving William, I went into a very exclusive shop to buy my best friend, Ruby Smith, the former Ruby Terry, a gift. As I walked through the store, there was Joyce Bennett, a great actress, looking down on the fur coats with a nonchalant attitude until a model came out wearing a beautiful mink. Under the coat was Mary Frances Robinson, who told us that Peggy Robbins was now married and the mother of five fine boys. Joyce made our hearts skip a beat when she told us that Jacqueline Rankin was secretly engaged to the Vice-President of the United States, Meredith Bynum, whose secretary is none other than Betty Lou Craven. Recovering from that shock and realizing how late it was, I bought my gift and started down the street. CI was so tired I decided to catch a bus. As I stepped into the bus, I heard one of Mack Rankin's famous re- marks and lo and behold! there he was making eyes at a beautiful blonde when he should have been driving. Among his passengers was Jack Frazier who was on his way home from the Navy. He told me that Jeter Allred was a famous geologist in Calcutta, seeking hidden treasures. He also said that while waiting over in San Francisco he saw Bobbie Greene, now the wife of John Derek, the handsome movie star. They are living in a thirty room mansion, designed by Mar- garet Ussery, a famous architect. He said that he was planning to visit Arnold Raines, owner of an asparagus farm in South Carolina. By this time I had reached the other side of town, and as I stepped Bill Cloninger, now a policeman, directing traffic. He took time from his few minutes, and told me sity of North Carolina, after completing four successful years of football off the bus, there was duties to talk to me a Justice at the Univer- there. After Bill had that Fred Henry was Assistant Coach to Charlie held up traffic long enough for me to cross the street, I decided to stop somewhere for a snack. The sign "Glady,s Grill" caught my eye so I entered, only to find that Gladys Raines was the owner and manager here. Gladys and I sat down and as I sipped the delicious coffee, she added to my information about Ellerbe School Cafeteria versity of Colorado. our classmates by telling me that Louise Gardner was a dietitian in the and that Ruby Goins was working in the Science Department at the Uni- As I hurried up the saw Eldridge standing in street I noticed a sign "Carter's Florist". Looking a little closer I the door. I stopped to speak and learned that he'd just returned from a Florida vacation. He told me that as he boarded the plane he glanced up at one of the hostesses and to his amazement it was Peggy Harris. Just then a delivery boy came by with Eldridge's mail among which was a Christmas card from Jack Martin. Jack wrote a little note inside tel- ling Eldridge that he and Lewis Jenkins were ABC officers in Vermont. As our conversation con- tinued about our classmates, Eldridge told me that the day before he'd sold George McFayden, a dozen roses for Mary Anne Nicholson, now a nurse in one of the larger hospitals there. It was getting late, so I started on my way. I remembered that Ineeded a pair of shoes, so I stopped in at Worth McNair's shoe store. I sank down in one of the large chairs and up walked a friendly clerk, who Iimmediately recognized as Essie Lee Greene. After exchanging greetings, I asked to see Worth. She said that he'd gone to Charlotte to see Walter Abbott who was injured in a boxing match with Junior Mabe, there. Just then, in walked Marlene Broome and her two little girls. After looking around I found a pair of shoes that suited my taste. I looked on the label and to my surprise found that they were designed by Carl Thompson. Glancing at my watch, I realized that I was late and got ready for a lecture on punctuality from Mr. McCa1lister, the Superintendent of City Schools, who is my boss.

In September 1947, we entered high school as a group of excited freshmen. That year we chose as our class officers: President, Billy LowdermilkgVice-President, Bill Ballardg Secretary, Ellin Briggs. Our dreams of changing classes, having a different teacher for our different subjects, and having parties together were really coming true. Later we found that it was not all parties but much hard work. When school closed in May 1948, we were looking forward to being sophomores with only three more years to go. We chose in the fall of '48 as our officers: President, El- dridge Carterg Vice-President, Billy Lowdermilkg and Secretary, Lydia Currie. This year slipped quickly away with many pleasant memories. When our junior year rolled around we looked forward to our Junior-Senior Banquet, our junior play, and the many other interesting events. We chose as our officers this year: President, Lydia Currie, Vice-President, Billy Lawrence, and Secretary, Marion Chappell. This year promises to be a happy year for the juniors. We are excitedly looking forward to our senior year in the dear old Ellerbe High. ,ign- G , .

We were noted for being the smallest class to enter high school in years. Our homeroom teachers were Miss Esther Taggert and Miss Jane Beachum. We chose as our class officers the following: Tom Covington, Presi- dentg Herman Stutts, Vice-Presidentg Ethel Myrick, Secretaryg and Susann McLean, Treasurer. 4 Entering the Sophomore class in 1949, we felt very dignified. Mr. J. D. Bradford and Mr. John Phillips were our homeroom teachers. We chose as our class officers this year, Harris Rummage, Presidentg Lawrence McRae, Vice-Presidentg Gayle Cloninger, Secretaryg and Elva Fulp, Treasurer. We are patiently waiting our junior year of hilarious events to come after two hard years of patient striving. u Gayle Cloninger Page Twenty 5. FRE HMA CLASS Q Q' Q, m 4' iff.

This year the school obtained its first coach and it has begun progressing in sports. Wonderful train- ing by Coach Lauffer led the six-man team to a successful season. The team was very good on offense and went on to win six and lose two. Most of the team was made up of seniors who put forth all they had to win. The seniors were as follows: Rankin, MacFayden, Jenkins, Frazier, Williams, Clonniger, and co-captains Allred and Henry. ftp- Q s '1 4 , Q-Page afw2q4?n.l .,5..,..,g.w. 1ii51?,!'!F'sMlllstelifgijr x ,Z ei an J ,M 4' E, ,aff , NA , ..

The team was always near the top in the county, they were never a pushover. It was a fighting team that beat Troy in the last ten seconds to get sweet revenge on them for their defeats they had handed us in previous years. The team has won 9 and lost 6 games up to date, and are expecting to win many more. Lacking in height but having more than their share of speed, the team, under Coach R. A. Lauifer plays a very fast game. The highest scoring game so far was against Biscoe when the team scored 54 point only to lose in the last five seconds. ,gk ETBALL B. Sugg, J. Sugg, B. Ballard F.

"I surrender" "Footsie" hits for two FUCI1 GIRLS' SPIIRT The 1949-1950 girl's basketball team of Ellerbe is in the process of organizing a good team. Although actual experience is lacking, the team promises to offer scrappy and tough competition to anyone who challenges. Fresh- men make up a large part of the team and despite their youth and inexperience they have captured coveted first places on the starting team. Under the direction of Coach Lauffer, the team has made several good starts but lack the reserves to keep the score in their favor. In the years to come the team should be an excellent one because they only loose three seniors who are Marlene Joyce, Joyce Bemiett, and Bobbie Greene. The team, so far, has won 5, tied 1, and lost 9. Judging from the attitude of the girls themselves, it is evident that they will win more games during the latter part of the season.
