W. E. "Woody" LOWE
To Mr. Wilkes E. Lowe, Jr., whose kindness, generous assistance, and pat-
ience have endeared hi.m to all of us, we, the members of the annual staff, fondly
dedicate this book The Echoes of 1950.
MRS. MAUDE HATLEY
The annual staff, on behalf of the school would like to dedicate a portion of
our annual, in memory of Mrs. Maude I-latley, who served faithfully on the cafe-
teria staff for five years. She was liked by everyone because of her pleasing
smile and cheerful disposition. Her death on January 12, l950 was a great shock.
She will always be remembered by all who knew her.
PEGGY ANN SMITH
Peggy Anne Smith, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.H. W. Smith, was a member'
ofthe junior class before her death on November 23, 1949. The annual staff
wishes to pay this tribute to Peggy Anne and recognize her many friendly acts
and courageous spirit. The Elon student body is much richer because she was

In September lf?-16, thirty-eight green, wide-eyed, curious, and innocent
Freshmen started on the last lap of their school years. The boys and girls were
separated in the home rooms. The girls had as their teacher Mrs. Frank Mc-
Cauley and their class officers were as follows: President Betty Peeler, Vice-
President Ann Matkins, Secretary Faye Tickle, and Treasurer Eva Mae Bran-
nock. The boys had Mrs. Juanita Albright as their home room teacher and their
class officers were President Bobby Lester, Vice-President Ronald Cferringer,
Secretary and Treasurer Cooper Walker. During the year, the girls had a
fashion show, hayride, and a play, "The Bird on Nellie's Hat". The boys had
a swimming party on the last day of school.
The next year as Sophomores we were really getting in step with every-
thing. Mrs. M. W. Hook was our homeroom teacher and our class officers were
President Ralph Foster, Vice-President Ronald Cverringer, Secretary Betty
Peeler, and Treasurer Catherine Crabtree. This year a few of our classmates
had dropped out but a few new ones came in too. This year our class gave
another play, "Mildred Is My Name". We also went to the Burlington Fair one
The next year we really felt important. There was lots more to do. We
went to the State Fair and spent the day. That was a trip we all enjoyed. Then
we gave our play "Here Come Charlie", which was a big success. Last but
not least we gave the Seniors their banquet. It was lots of work and lots of fun.
Mr. W. E.. Lowe was our homeroom teacher and a good one through it all. This
year the class officers were President Richard Sneed, Vice-President Bill Wil-
son, Secretary Ann Matkins, and Treasurer Carrie Parker.
Now comes our last and most irnportant year. We really felt our irnportance
last September when we were full pledged Seniors. Our teacher this year is
Miss Estelle Brown and our class officers are as follows: President Betty Peel-
er, Vice-President Betty Curtis, Secretary Eva Mae Brannock, and Treasurer
Dan Dagenhart. The name of our play is "Mama's Baby Boy". This year we
did a little bit of everything trying to raise enough money to go to Washington.
We're looking forward to the Junior-Senior Banquet and graduation. We have
31 Seniors this year, which is the largest number to graduate here in quite a
few years. We're proud of this.
This ends the history of the '50 class. We've come a long way and had lots
of fun with it all. Although we're graduating soon I'm sure we won't forget our
last four years of school.
Eva Mae Brannock
Burlington, North Carolina
April 15, l96O
Dear Miss Brown,
Eva and I received your nice letter and we want you to know that we're very happy over the
arrival of our fifth child too.
Yes, I've heard from all the members of the '50 class.
When Eva Mae last heard from Ann, she was designing clothes in New York, and still look-
ing for an eligible bachelor. You guessed about Catherine--she is married to Harris, and
they have a Harris, Jr. two months old. This I know will knock you down! Betty Peeler is
teaching typing at Elon High School and Glenn is principal--you know, like father-like son.
I'll bet that school's a mess with both of them in it. We saw them together at the Casablanca
a few nights ago when Eva Mae and I were celebrating our ninth wedding anniversary. Martha
has taken up where her father left off--managing Lacy Hall, world heavyweight champion. All
of us knew that Ralph would go places but never did we think that he would be president of Elon
College. Bill hasn't changed a bit, except for a few gray hairs put there by the young girls he
runs after--and I do mean run. Between rounds he looks after "Wilson's Teen-Age Hangout".
Marion and Carol carried out their plans. They are both nurses in Greensboro, but they come
home every week-end to check the boys' North Dorm. Most of us knew that "Birddog" and
Norma "had up a case" but no one thought it so serious. At last count, there were ten little
bird puppies--two legged ones, that is, running around the house. Norma told Eva that "Daddy
had them sleeping with basketballs now". Ibet that Elon has a good team before long. Have
you read Carrie's latest book of poetry? She sent us a copy and it's really good. She certain-
ly is a big success. C. A. and I went hunting the other day. He sure does have a nice dog ken-
nel. He has 500 acres of land in which he trains the dogs that he sells to wealthy people. Tink's
success was long coming. It took her quite a while to get out of business college--the teacher's
fault. Now we hear she's secretary to some big shot. We see Adrian every Sunday. Who would
have thought he would be pastor of St. Mark's Church? Oh yes, I almost forgot, but Virginia
changed her plans. She's now teaching in high school--succeedihg'Mrs. Hook. Yesterday I
stopped at "Hovdesven's Hangout". Bayard is really successful with his pool room. We see
"Doodle" every Saturday night going to square dances. She's going alone now, because due to
circumstances Mrs. Gerringer had to give them up. "Doodle" is still working on the same
counter at Rose's. I guess you read in the paper about Dan and .Tean's wedding. They're in
California on their honeymoon. Dan is a big success, he has a chain of filling stations all over
the state, but he's still driving his beat-up Ford. I suppose you've read about Cooper being
in the fighting business--wiping Lacy Hall's face and bringing him water in between rounds.
In his spare time he draws cartoons and designs ships for the Navy. We don't see Roy much
any more. He's still chasing Jeanette, and does she give him a run for his money! It seems
that Nell's plan for trapping Roy didn't work, so she now owns a skating rink. Maybe you've
heard ofWhitesell'sTrucking Company. That's none other than our Ray Whitesell. The last we
heard he was really coming up in his business. In every class there's a girl that makes a big
catch. Who would have ever thought that it would be Dolores Hutchins, who is the quietest girl
in the class, who would marry a millionaire from up North? This is about the biggest sur-
prise of ally .Iulia May is married and Faye is part owner of Belk-Beck Company. I know you
won't be surprised at this, because Jerrie had her ring before graduation, but she's married
and is very happy. When we were talking to Marion and Carol a few weeks ago, they told us
that Ellen was head nurse at Sternburg Hospital in Greensboro.
I think that takes care of everyone and besides number five is causing quite a disturbance,
so I'll have to close this time.
Dick and Eva Sneed
We, the Senior Class of Elon High School, being of sound mind and noble dis-
position, who are about to leave these stately halls to go out and seek our for-
tunes, do hereby take and solemnly declare these last will and testaments in the
presence of our witnesses.
To Miss Brown we leave our wonderful standard of trying to act like ladies
and gentlemen so as to set a good example for the rest of the school and hope
that the up-coming senior class will try to do the same.
To our principal, Doctor Hill, we leave the memories of our pleasant high
To the Junior Class we leave our dignity as Seniors, our ability, our high
scholarship, our Senior privileges, and our good behavior, hoping they will make
the best of them.
Norma Robertson leaves her athletic ability to Carolyn Braxton knowing she
will do her best.
C. A. Ragan leaves his hunting ability to Johnny Gentry.
Ralph Foster wills his knowledge of "knowing something about everything
and everything about something" to Pete Truitt.
To Mildred Whitesell, Dolores Hutchins leaves her quietness, hoping Mil-
dred will take the hint.
Eva Mae Brannock wills her friendly ways to Grace Massey.
Glenn McDonald leaves his "manly" ways to Jerry Fowler.
Jerrie Phillips leaves her love affairs to Mary Lou Horner hoping she won't
break the record of someone's getting a diamond every year in the Senior Class
as has been for the past few years.
Faye Tickle leaves her sweet disposition to Peggy Sue I-Iuffines.
Ray Whitesell wills his job as bus driver to Moose.
Dan Dagenhart leaves his short haircuts to Dick Porter.
Because Ronald Gerringer is always having to go somewhere for someone,
he leaves his "taxi" to Ed Collins, hoping Ed will keep up the job next year.
Carrie Parker leaves the writing of the Class Poem to one of the Juniors who
will do it next year, and she wishes them luck.
Betty Peeler wills her knowledge to Clara Lee Kivette.
Julia May leaves her deceiving stack of books to Ann Kinch.
Roy Alderman leaves his way with the girls to Tommy Holt.
Jeanette Flynn leaves her ability of waving and combing boys' hair to Mary
Nell Somers leaves her way of loafing and getting by with it to some of the
Bayard Hovdesven wills his title of being the cutestboy in the class to one
of the up-coming Sophomore boys.
Martha Dowdey wills her way with the cadets to Annie Ridge.
Bill Wilson leaves his way with the seventh grade girls to H. W. Smith with
the hope that H. W. does a better job with them.
Virginia Smith wills her good sportsmanship to .Toy Belle Smithy hoping she
will live up to it.
Adrian Wilson leaves his witty sayings to Frankie Smith, hoping he'll continue
them so classeswon't get too boring.
Ellen Owen leaves the things that won her the title of best-looking to Kath-
Marion Foust wills her title as biggest flirt to Becky Robertson.
Carol Loman leaves her giggles to anyone in high school who is crazy e-
nough to take them.
Richard Sneed leaves his leadership as a Senior to an up-coming Senior Boy.
Catherine Crabtree leaves her job of ringing bells to Jeanette Foster who
is taller. Now the box on which "Cat" has to stand on can be eliminated.
Cooper Walker leaves his flirting ways to the high school boys.
Betty Curtis and Tink Hill leave their mid-morning store which sells any-
thing from a pencil to a box of cracker-jacks to Doug Turner and anyone who is
willing to help hind.
In testirnony whereof, we hereby appoint as executor of this, our last will and
testament, Mr. W. E. Lowe, with assurance that anyone failing to abide by any of
the provisions of said document will be severely penalized.
We do hereby subscribe our names and affix our seal this the year of our
Lord, one thousand nine hundred and fifty.

A Short Course in Success
I , ,V
I Back in I9Z3 flue lwenlies were iusl beginning Io roar , ..
folks were singing "Barney Google", "Ain'I Goin' Rain No
l I Mo' and "Yes, We Hove No Bananas" . . . ian music was 11
fhe new sensalion and a dance called llue Cluarlesfon was
lu sweeping Ihe nalion . . . Ilue ladies were slriving for a boyish
,- I g lip figure and lhe Ziegleld Girls were Ilue Ioas? of Broadway
Il l . . . over in Germany a scrawny Iillle Nazi named Adolp
, F, Hiller was lhrown in lhe clinlc for fomenling a beer-hall
II I rebellion, II was quile a year.
l Y Tha? same year in Burlinglon, Norllu Carolina, workmen
were clearing a nearby cornlield Io build a small lexlile ,
mill. Some local businessmen were risking llueir money in a
, bedspread manufacluring venlure. Tha? was lhe beginning I
ol Burlinglon MiIIs, a company deslinecl lo play a leading
role in lhe rise of man-made yarn from obscurily lo a place
u - ol maior imporfance in Iexliles.
Y Y During Ihe pasl 25 years Burlinglon Mills has grown from
, 1 one small mill al Burlinglon inlo one of lhe worId's largesl
, producers of rayon Iabrics. If now has 74 planls in six slales
and four foreign counlries employing over 27,000 people.
Y l Teamwork belween managemenl and skilled, loyal em-
u ployees made Burlinglon Mills a lexlile leader. Teamwork '
1 ll 'N also produced Ihe highesl qualify lexlile producls al flue li
'- lowesl possible cosl.
H, This successful Iormula was possible because American
Iree enlerprise permilled conslanl improvemenls in male-
.' rials and machinery, developmenl of our human resources,
I belfer melhocls of produclion, and an incenlive for progress ,N
and growlh. The formula broughl beller qualify fabrics lo
lhe consumer, II broughl beller jobs, higher pay, increased
benelils, and excellenl worliing condilions lo employees. lg
A Y And so, 25 years afler, Eurlinglon Mills wears a badge of li
success. Ils mullilude of producls are Iruly "Woven lnia
flue Life of America".
