There is seldom found the combination of good qualities that are found in Dr. Robert
Hubbard Putney, Sr. He has proved a true friend to all of us. For many years he
has served on the school board and has done much to improve our school. The service
that he has rendered to us as the community doctor cannot be surpassed.
Realizing the inadequacy of any tribute that we can pay him, we dedicate this
volume of the Bear Trap to Dr. Robert Hubbard Putney, Sr., with sincere gratitude
for his help and friendship.

ln the fall of 19418, sixty proud and happy boys and girls entered, for the first time, that new
world called high school. We were placed under the guidance of Mrs. Louise Winstead and Miss
C'lara liass. VVe had fun deciding what subjects we would take. Finally after we chose our
subjects and signed as members of either the F.H.A., the F.F.A., the Student Council, the band or
Glce Club. we settled down for a year of study. lVe were divided into groups but when tllat glorious
C'Ivristnnas season came around we were brought together for the happiest occasion of the year, "A
i'hristnias Party", which was held at the Elm City Womans Club. None of us will ever forget that
By the end of the freslnnan year we had learned that along with our fun we were going to meet
some hard work. As we watched the seniors of 19418 graduate, we wondered if we would ever walk
across the stage wearing those caps and gowns and hear our names read out clearly and distinctly.
VVe moved up to our sophomore year with a class of only forty-three. VVe were again placed un-
der the direction of Mrs. W'instead and Miss Bass as our home room teachers. This was mostly a
year of studying, for we did not wish to see a larger drop in the number of our junior class the com-
ing year. The highlight of our sophomore year was our trip to the Planetarium in Chapel Hill,
North Carolina. VVe had a grand time.
VVhen we moved on to the junior class, we were placed under the guidance of Miss Edith Lewis
and Miss Clara Bass. Vtve chose as our junior class president, Nancy Winstead. We had fun being
initiated into the Beta Club and learning what the club was all about. VVe were very proud to
publish our first school paper this year. We worked hard to keep the concession stand in the gym-
nasium open. Vi-'e had to raise money for our junior-senior banquet and prom. We decided to hold
the banquet and prom in our new school lunch 1'oom. You should have seen that fairy land which
seemed to have been taken off a fellows valentine to his best girl. We turned that lunch room into
a land of red and white hearts and streamers. How can any of us cver forget that wonderful night
of February 9, 1951! It was cold and snowing but we didn't mind. Our fun was so great that the
eold and snow blended in perfectly. VVe felt that our junior-senior banquet and prom were the best
of all banquets and proms. Soon after this grand event we started making preparations for the
part the juniors would have in the graduation exercises. The marshals were Joan VViggs, Chief. l,u-
cille Barnes, Joyce Farmer, Uelphia Skinner, .lean Beaman, and Nancy VVinstead. VVe were proud
that night when we stood in line holding our lighted candles as light for our departing seniors. iVe
knew now that we were the new seniors. VVe had at last reached that long-awaited-for year of our
high school career. 1
Again. in the fall of 1951, with a class of thirty-eight seniors and two post graduates we started
to school with a feeling different from any we had known before. We knew that this would be our last
year. It was hard to work with the thoughts of the future crowding in our minds. Tlms many of us
found that we were on the borderline in just a short time. We finally, however. got down to work.
Joan VViggs was chosen as our class president. Mrs. V. B. Skinner was our home room teacher. lVe
faced the job of publishing our annual, the Bear Trap. We knew this would be hard work. but we
never doubted our ability to do the job well. By the time you read this history we will have com-
pleted our year book, presented our senior play, which we look forward to doing with pleasure. taken
our eargerly awaited trip to Washington, D. C., and attended our last junior-senior banquet and
At last that long awaited moment-graduation has arrived. We will never forget our high
school years, and as we go out into the world, we feel assured of success in whatever field we Inav:-
chosen because of the wonderful help and guidance of our understanding faculty. Leaving we carry
with us, locked in our memories, the millions of recollections of our high school days.

"Look, Joan, let's go into this gypsyis tent and see if we can borrow her srystal ball to use to
predict the future of the class of '52, Of course, I don't believe that a round glass 'ball can tell the
future, but I think it might be fun to try it." From the dimness of the tent came the voice of a gyp-
sy, "You don't believe, you say? Try it and you'll see the future."
With these words she thrust the ball into my hands. I began to watch it, mostly because she in-
sisted. and to my intense surprise I began to see hazy outlines of events to come. Suddenly I saw
clearly and shouted, "Hey, Joan, look!"
"'I'hat's Nancy Winstead playing that piano on a London stage and the audience loves her
music! And there's Frank Davis-he. too, is a pianist who records for R. C. A. Oh, Alma Thorne is
singing in New York with the Metropolitan Opera. VVhere is that music coming from? Douglas
Gardncr's well-known string band!
t'Look there's a movie producer walking down the street. Why it's Charles Dawes and with
him is a top flight actor, VVarren Proctor."
"Herc's Yankee Stadium where the New York Yankees and the Brooklyn Dodgers are playing
the first 1962 VVorld Series game. The Yankees are sure to win with Bill Beaman managing their
team. Golly, look who's pitching for New York-Bruce Brice. Thomas Farmer is on the Yankees
team, also. And there's Derwood Yvinstead playing second base for the Dodgers. Among the spec-
tators I see Billy Parker-he's a professional football player with the VVashington Redskins-and
Aulcie Lee Farmer, who is a baseball player with the St. Louis Cardinals."
"VVhat is that I see now? It's J. C. Winstead dictating to his secretary, Marian Langely, the
speech he will make in the House of Representatives tomorrow. VVhy. there's Joyce Farmer. She's
head bookkeepcr in the Internal Revenue Department. In Washington, too, is Marie Oakey, secre-
tary to the President of the United States. None of our class is old enough to be president yet, but
with Billy Gay's brilliant political record we shouldn't be surprised to hear of his election."
"This girl seems quite busy. Itis Dorothy Thorne! She's taken Mrs. Musser's position at Elm
City High School. Here's another secretary-Elizabeth Jenkins who is secretary to the president
of Belk stores."
"Now I see many tall buildings. Of course, we're in New York City! That's Delphia Skinner
modeling that lovely evening gown which is one of Jean Beaman's original designs. In New York
I also see a TV station where Frances Robbins works as a comedian."
"All the Batts boys are interested in machinery it seems. VV. T. sells.it, Jasper drives a bull-
dozer for a large construction company, and Bobby Ray uses the latest farm machinery on his
farms. Marvin Robbins, too, is a farmer. He owns a dairy farm in Pennsylvania."
"I see many of our students happily married. Living in Wilson, North Carolina, is Helen
Jenkins, now Mrs. R. C. Owens. She and her husband have just moved into a new brick home on
Nash Street. Helen Williams lives in Wyoming with her husband and red-headed daughter. I see
Mrs. Harold Finch, the former Miss Lois Bryant, and her two children walking down a street in San
Francisco. They are living there while Lt. Finch, who is in the Navy, is stationed near-by. To
prove that marriage and a career do mix, Lucille Barnes, now the wife of Milton Winstead, has be-
come a nurse and is working at a hospital in Prescott, Arizona, where her husband is stationed with
"The pilot of that United Airlines plane surely knows aviation. He brought his ship down
safely through a dense fog. Why, it's Ray Troutman, and the hostess on the plane is Shelly Pagef'
"The new manager of General Motors, Joel Thorne, specializes in making and selling hot dogs."
"Following a truck down the highway, I see that it belongs to Lynwood Joyner. He has estab-
lished a truck line from Maine to California."
"Two members of the class are serving in the armed forces. They are Milton Bass, who is in
Japan with the Air Force, and David Winstead, an Army Sergeant in Germany."
"Two members of our class are in the teaching profession. Georgia Webb is now head of the
counnercial department in a school in the western part of North Carolina and Billy Williams is the
new agriculture teacher at Elm City."
"There's the new children's hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina, where Joan Wiggs is Superin-
tendent of nurses. In Hamlet, North Carolina, I see myself director of nurses at Hamlet Hospital,
where I received my training."
Again the outlines of the events depicted in the crystall ball began to grow hazy and slowly
the scenes disappeared entirely. The gypsy, who had been watching us all the while, said, "You are
convinced now, are you not, of the efficacy of the crystal ball?" Hurriedly we agreed and then hast-
ened from the tent. Never again will we say that it is impossible to penetrate the veil between the
present and the future.
