Doris Williams was the class president and Mrs. Braswell was our home room teacher. We did nothing of special interest that year-just worked and worked. Our highest aim was to pass. Some didn't. Next, sophomores! We felt very wise as we branched out into the fields of general business, home economics, biology, agriculture, algebra, chemistry, and English. That year Vera Winstead as class president and Mrs. Braswell as home room teacher guided our activities-Mrs. Braswell mostly guided us into work. When we reached our junior year, we were again placed under Mrs. Braswells guidance. Bobby Williams was elected the class president. What a year! VVhat work! But what joys as welll Selecting class rings, joining the Beta Club, publishing the Bear-Hi journal, going to the Beta Club Convention and the Student Council Congress, and, greatest of all, having the junior-Senior Banquet and Prom-these were the junior highlights. To finance the banquet we had a popularity contest throughout the school and sponsored the picture, "That Lady in Erminef' which was presented in the Elm Theatre. The Junior-Senior Banquet was held April 8, 1949, in the Womans Club. Shall we ever forget the hard work we did turning the club house into a night club, or what a fair-yland it turned out to be? We had the very best time of our lives. At the end of the year averages showed Frankie Sharpe to be chief marshal, and Annie Morris Thorne, Doris Williams, Peggy VVhitehead, Mavis Pridgen, and Bobby Williams to be the other marshals for commencement. The rest of us won't ever forget the rose chain. Shortly after our return to school as seniors, we elected loyce Batts president. Later we sponsored the yearly Curtis Magazine subscription contest. The class sold 951,728.05 worth of magazines. This topped all former classes of Elm City High. For selling the most magazines, Bobby Williams and Billy Smith received watchesg for reaching the high total, the class received a Benjamin Franklin Plaque. Undertaking to publish a better BEAR TRAP was not an easy job. We feel, however, that our able staff has succeeded. By this time we, the seniors of 1950, will have presented a senior play, will have taken our senior trip, and will have attended the junior-Senior Banquet. As our commencement draws near, we feel that our high school days have been memorable ones-full of work and play. To those who have helped make these happy memories, we wish to express our sincere appreciation. On behalf of all thirty-six seniors, 1 take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Braswell for her helpful guidance. To Mr. Pugate, and to all teachers, we wish to say, "Because of you, we are worthy of our motto, 'The will to do, the soul to dare." PEGGY VVHITEHEAD, Historian Page Fourteen CLASS PROPHECY Calling for a command performance of ten years hence, I sec our class of 1950 representing all walks of life. leiere they are as I have seen them: Mrs. Sam Tosto, the former La Rue Bailey, has just announced the birth of her first child. loyce Batts, our class president, is well on her way to becoming the hrst woman president of the United States. Leading her campaign is the well-known comedienne, Ieanette Parker. Brent Braswell has replaced Walt Disney in the field of art. After struggling several years washing cars, Bill Braswell has hnally been named president of the Chrysler Corporation. 'lack Carey, the most troublesome bov in the Senior Class, is now a peaceful officer in the U. S. Navv. 1 Imogene Davis has finally made up her mind to get married in june. "Pookie" Davis is the player-manager of the St. Louis Cards, who have just won their fourth consecutive national pennant under his management. Because of his brillant contributions to medical science, a hospital was named in honor of jack Edwards, the great baby specialist. Mary Edwards, our first bride, now has two children, Lucile and Cecil, jr. Ilkflavisd Farmer is teaching typing at West Edgecombe where her husband is at letic irector. Dorlese Ferrell is the "Silent Lady" on "Truth or Consequences." Martha Ann jones is engaged to a multifmillionaire from Chicago. Doris Langley's work at Davis' helped her to become owner of a chain of drug stores. "Slim" Millard has risen from pitcher to president of the VVilson Tobs. Eula Mae Phillips is the girls' athletic director at the University of Stantonsburg. Eugene Poland has obtained an additional 100 acres for his huge farm. Their work on our school paper and annual helped Mavis Pridgen and Doris Williams to become publishers of the magazine, Clmtterlnox. Helen Robbins has at last settled down as a happy wife and mother. Juanita-Robbins and Barbara Williams are the stars of the new Broadway Musical "Lovers Delight." Mamie Skinner is the owner of an orange orchard in Florida. Frankie Sharpe entered the field of journalism, and wrote a book which promises to acclaim her the worlds greatest novelist. Annie Morris Thorne is assisting joe in his work at .Ioyner's Funeral llome. She says business is somewhat dead. Insurance salesman Bill Smith is playing pro basketball with the New York Knickerbochers as a hobby. Bod Dawes is the owner of a chain of grocery stores called "Urquhart's Super Market." ' jean Troutman is President at Kings Business College in Raleigh. To keep herself busy while her husband "Pookie" is on road trips, Aileen W7hitehead teaches St. Louis girls to play championship basketball. Peggy Whitehead has become one of those rare women who can successfully mix a career with marriage-she's married to Bod, of course. Donald Wiggs is an Agriculture professor at State College. Bobby Williams is the outstanding minister of a famous New York Baptist Church. Elwood Williford is chairman of the National Committee of Soil Conservation. Doris Nell Winstead leads a quiet life as the wife of Bandolph Xvhitehead. Vera Winstead is still searching for her favorite male. As for myself, I see a promising career in social work.
