C lass History
The illustrious class of 1930 would not be so unkind as to leave New
Bern High School without recording, in the archives of the school, a few
facts concerning the history of this class. Of course no historian can do
us justice unless he has an exaggerated notion of his ability. It is a brave
spirit who would undertake such a stupendous task.
In the fall of 1926 a group of forlorn creatures otherwise known as
Freshmen entered New Bern High School. Though very green and ig-
norant we soon found our little corner in the life of the high school. We
green, trembling Freshmen felt the need of a wise leader, and therefore
we elected Billy Ferebee as president. We cheerfully offered ourselves as
targets for the numerous pranks of upper classmen. We did not amount
to much in the eyes of others and consequently, a painful inferiority com-
plex claimed most of us.
September, 1927, found us fully recovered from the characteristic
freshmen ailments. We were now possessed with the wisdom of Sopho-
frnores. We became so wise that a strange feeling of discontent seized us
and as a result we tried to reform the whole school. We elected "Sap"
Holton as our worthy president. He, along with his helpers, led us through
a successful year, but we still felt sadly neglected. At the end of the year
we did our little act of courtesy to the seniors by giving them a picnic.
Some of our more lucky members were allowed to serve at the Junior-
Senior Banquet. Most of us felt that our day had not come.
One hot September morning in 1928 we awoke to find ourselves "Jolly
Juniors." Evelyn Pittman played "Aimee McPherson" and "revived us
again." Evelyn, acting as president, kept things moving at a lively rate.
After successfully operating on our parents we finally extracted
enough money from them to buy class rings. We waved our hands in the
air for weeks and weeks lest the world miss the sight of the flashing
symbol of our station. After we had recovered from our ring complex,
we set about planning for the J unior-Senior Banquet.
We decided that a trip to Holland would be good for those superior
creatures called seniors, so we created a little Holland down in the social

rooms of the Methodist Church and invited the seniors to a typical Dutch
banquet. This was the climax of our junior year. The success of this
banquet given the seniors gave us a feeling of self-confidence that kept us
In the fall of 1929 when we became Seniors, we experienced a strange
combination of emotions that I shall not attempt to describe in detail. We
concluded that a high school senior is a conglomerate of a thousand im-
pulses pulling him in a thousand directions. Nat Dixon as president of
the senior class, attempted the gigantic job of handling affairs of state in
the senior class. He successfully managed those who could not manage
themselves and his line influence pulled many a poor straggling senior
through the year.
May 23, 1930, the seniors dressed themselves in their very best and
went to the outstanding social event of the year-the J unior-Senior Ban-
quet-where we were toasted and retoasted to a nice hard brown, thus
making us hard-toasted instead of hard-boiled. Another appetizing
feature of our last year in New Bern High School was the Sophomore-
Senior Picnic. The "big" little sophomores were the last word as enter-
You see, the New Bern High School Seniors of 1930 have a history!

Class Prop hecy i
One warm summer afternoon, I was lounging lazily in my porch swing,
waiting for Effie to call by for me, as we had planned to go down to our
favorite "hang-out"-Shaw's-to refresh our hot, tired, school-worn
bodies. While resting in this repose, it suddenly occurred to me to wonder
what on earth I'd wish for if I could have only one wish granted on earth.
I became lost in my day-dreams when suddenly, a delightfully small
little woman said, "Evelyn, I have just read your thoughts, and as I have
one more 'good deed' to perform today, I shall be very glad to grant your
I received a shock when this apparition appeared, for I had only a
second before been utterly alone. But the ecstasy of joy that I experi-
enced over knowing that any wish I might make would be granted, made
me forget my fright, and regain my composure.
That was certainly a thought for one poor brain-out of all the things
that I was selfish enough to want, I could get only one. What a War was
raging in my brain! Suddenly, the word Future sprang up! Yes! what
about my future-what about the Future of the Senior Class. That wish
immediately became an obsession. I wanted to visualize the present
Senior Class in their personal, and professional spheres ten years hence.
My lovely little lady then set up an instrument very similar to the old-
fashioned telescope, but ever so much larger, in fact, almost life size. She
told me to look steadily into the camera-effect, and that any person that I
desired to see would pass in view, and that I could even speak to him,
provided I would promise not to talk longer than five minutes to each one.
That was a hard promise to make, because I do love to talk. Just
imagine my being limited to time, when I hadn't seen my classmates in
such a long time. Nevertheless, I was anxious to begin, I wanted to say
"Hello" to every member of the class of 1930.
First, I see New Bern's large water-works plant-a large dam has been
built-large machine shops are below the dam. All of these great works
are under one master mind. Who else should this be but Roderick Abbott.
He tells me that, although he is boss of these great works, he has one who
bosses him. This is Laura Daugherty.
I now see one of the largest hospitals of New Bern. Would you believe
me if I told you that I see Andrew Chesson? He seems to be performing
a great operation. There are also some very pretty nurses in this modern
hospital. Let me see-I believe I recognize one or two of them-of course
I do-they are Edith Cuthrell and Sally McClees. I inquire as to the

name of this hospital and I am told that it is "St. John's Hospital," for
cats and dogs.
We next view the west coast to Wilmington. There in a large opera
house I see the Suskin family. Our dear old Nathan seems to be quite a
hit. In his school days, I bet he thought that he would never be able to

girl's heart" and is now living in the west side of Kansas with a "big
Lillian Quinn has become noted for her progressive ideas in the man-
agement of kindergarten and is very much loved for her Work among the
Next passes into view a large newspaper office which edits the paper
with the largest circulation in the world. The editor! Yes! That's Mar-
riner Hardison. He is one of the greatest known editors of today.
Suddenly, I notice Effie Rhodes going in. She tells me that she is a
newspaper reporter. They always gave her that type of work in high
school. I thought that she would soon tire of it, but it seems that she likes
running around the ofiice for certain "types"
The scene shifts seventeen miles from the center, to the edge of New
Bern, where we find a sign reading, "Barber Dairy." Imagine my amaze-
ment when I saw Jack Barber busily engaged in the cow stall.
I now see advertised the celebrated dancer, Charles McDaniel, who is
to appear behind the footlights of "ole" Broad, which is the main theatre
district of New Bern. He now has a chance for all of 'em-blondes, bru-
nettes, red heads, etc.
Not far from a little town in China there stands a large silk-worm
farm. I see the owner. He is no other than Louis Nassef, the boy who
was so charmed with foreign industries in high school.
A large building has just been completed. It is a very fine piece of
work. I see an ofiice. There written on the door in gold letters, "Warren
Next I see Elsie Riegel, Mary Bell, and Doris Peek, who say that in two
weeks they will appear in Jessie lVIann's new play, "When the Earth Rolls
Would you ever believe that Irma Williams is a hostess at a night club?
I understand that she went to Paris and took dancing lessons under Pro-
fessor Kingland Isabella, who is no other than Isabelle King, who was in
my class at school.

I look into the capital and who should I see but Nat Dixon. It seems
that the President is a great cousin of his and I bet Nat is keenly inter-
ested in succeeding his dear cousin.

Marie Latham and Lillian Mullen are proprietors of the Union Point
Hotel. This hotel was built three years ago and Marie' and Lillian have
made it one of the largest and most popular hotels of the South.
Edward Parsons has invented an easier method in shorthand, which
has made him very wealthy. Take a trip to the Parsons' Mansion, which
is located in de Graffenried Park, and ask him to give you some personal
advice-he seems very much interested in this subject.
I see in the pulpit of the Methodist Church of St. Paul, Minnesota,
Louis Smallwood. In the choir of the church I see Mildred White, Robert
Davis, and Elinor Nelson. Mildred is one of the best known alto singers
in her state. She has already won ten medals and is now working on her
Then there's Lib Miller. She was one of the six chosen from the 5,000
to be Madame Clara Foscue's mannequinn. Even in High School she
knew how to wear clothes well.
In a cozy little cottage in the suburbs of New Bern, Sophia seems to
be very happy with her husband, Mr. Wetherington. Sophia says that she
thoroughly enjoys the role of housewife. She never did like the idea of
being an old maid, anyway.
Scenes change rapidly, we come to a house, we see a large library-
the librarian is reading. She is our own Cibble Bray.
We look again. This time we see Ida Hardison washing dishes. She
always did like washing dishes, even in high school days. She seems to
be very happy with her husband and dishes.
Now I see Harry Kilburn. He owns a drug store and is the best known
druggist in Kalamazoo-and that's saying a lot, because Kalamazoo has
a population of 5,000.
The Neuse River Valley has become a great farming district. On a
knoll above the valley stands a large sanitorium. Ah! I see written on the
door of the office, "Helen George, Superintendent." We expected Helen
to become some kind of a French Madame, but she always did have a liking
for doing something different.
Whom do you think I see as coach of Elon? No other than our dearly
beloved Braxton George, better known as "Brax." He has as his assistant
Mr. Eura Gaskins. Eura has the high ambition to succeed "Brax."
Charles Styron is to be featured in a musical comedy on "ole" Broad.
Charles has a hard time keeping his good looks. He goes to a beauty shop
every day. Oh, yes, the comedy Charles is featured in, is one of the ,many
comedies written by Mr. Billy Ferebee.
I now notice a large building. On one of the doors of the seventh
floor, I see written "Simonds and Simonds, Lawyers." We all thought
Hubert would be a politician but he seems to get more fun out of his

Glover. She is very neatly dressed in modern clothes. Her costume con-
sists of a black satin dress, a white apron and a white head-dress. She is
head of the servants, quarters in Mr. James Henderson's home. It seems
that Mr. Henderson gained his wealth in the oil business at Havelock.
I now see in the western state of Oregon, a prim little school teacher.
Well, if it isnyt Grace White-an old, old chum of mine! She is wearing
glasses and I ask her why. She tells me that she has to wear them in order
to keep men away.
Next, scenes drift back to France, and I see Christabell Barbour hap-
pily married to her "French boy" whom she got acquainted with in
"French Class Correspondence" at N. B. H. S.
Little Marie settled at last with Joe on the eastern side of New Bern.
Joe just couldn't resist her wicked smiles. Now he is forever bound but
he seems to enjoy it very much, though. Three cheers for their future!
Next we come to a beautiful home overleeking a large lake. As I stop
to admire this enchanting place, a lovely young woman and a handsome
young man appear on the scene. They are Evelyn Pittman and Hugh
Watson-the ardent school lovers of the past-they appear just as much
in love today as in 1930.
Out in Topeka, Kansas, is pictured Callie Mae Petway. Callie Mae has
never married but she isn't an old maid, by any means. She has about ten
or twelve sweethearts. She is a "star" and pays each man 3100.00 per
month just for publicity.
Next we come to Sylvia Gwaltney, who resides in the suburbs of Los
Angeles with "Sonny Boy." She seems to have forgotten some of her baby
ways and baby talk. Maybe she just doesn't have to use it any more.
Eula Stewart is one of the greatest fliers of today. She has risked her
life more than any other young lady of the World. She has done more
aerial feats this past year than any man or woman in the universe. At
present she is working with Barnum Sz Bailey Circus on the high trapeze.
That difficult little girl arises before our eyes and we look around and
see that she is still in New Bern, enjoying life With her "Jimmie," We
have not told you who she is-nor do We think it necessary to do so, but in
case you have forgotten how to think as you did in 1930-it is just "ole"

On Friday, December 13, 1929, the Senior Class of New Bern High
School presented to the public a mystery play, "The Ghost Bird." The
play was produced under the direction of Miss Maisie Bookhardt and
under the management of Nat Dixon. The cast was a medley of all stars,
including Eura Gaskins, Evelyn Pittman, Jack Barber, Eula Stewart,
Ishmael Whitford, Charles Styron, Charles McDaniel, Helen George,
Sophia Benton, Sally McClees, and Hubert Simonds.
The plot was arranged to cover four acts with a spell-binding mystery.
There was a hero, a heroine, a villain, and last but not least, a "dark
woman." The scenes were laid in an old house in New York during the
worst storm of the year.
A large crowd witnessed the presentation at the Masonic Theatre and,
judging by the frequent applause, the crowd greatly enjoyed the play.

One of the most elaborate and color-
ful social events ever held in connec-
tion with New Bern high school was
given Friday night at the Centenary
Methodist Church, when the members
of the Junior class were hosts to the
Seniors at the much heralded Junior-
On entering the church social rooms
at 7:30, the 157 banqueters found
themselves in a veritable Japanese
fairyland. Beautiful Japanese effects,
including unnumbered symbols and
souvenirs, were arranged throughout
the great hall. The entire room was
banked on all sides with myrtle, in-
terspersed with dwarf pines and hun-
dreds of artificial Japanese cherry
blossoms. Crepe paper streamers, in
uncountable numbers, created a riot of
fairy-like color around the walls.
Overhead hung a myriad of lighted
Japanese lanterns, with hundreds of
beautiful colored lights. Moss and
sprays of Wisteria, between the lights,
created a beautiful overhead effect.
The alcoves at one side were also at-
tractively decorated with evergreens,
Japanese parasols, and dainty pink
curtains for the windows.
On the opposite wall was painted the
exterior of a Japanese geisha house,
with wierd, but strangely beautiful,
dragon effects. At the upper end of
the room was a scenic stage, arranged
for the pantomime feature of the
Three long tables and a shorter one
were set for 157 juniors, seniors, and
their guests. The tables were beauti-
fully arranged, with vases of larkspur,
with interspersing sprays of Dorothy
Perkins roses. Small baskets of mints,
decorated with tiny fans, further car-
ried out the motif at each place. The
place cards and programs were truly
works of art, hand-painted beautifully
with Japanese girls with parasols. The
booklet contained a printed menu and
program, and the name of each guest
was printed on the cover in Japanese-
The guests and young people arrived
at 7:30, mainly in couples. The girls,
beautifully dressed in enhancing even-
ing gowns, and many of them win-
somely peeping over beautiful cor-
sages, added much to the charm of the
hall. White and pastel shades of flan-
nels, and blue coats predominated in
the dress of the young men.
The delicacies of the menu, which
also possessed the Japanese motif, are
as follows: Iced Nippon cocktail, Sho-
gon caviar, Yokohama roast chicken
with stuffing, Hummingbird potato
nest, green peas, pickle rings, hot rolls
and butter, Fugiyama salad with
beaten biscuits, saltines and Kyota
cherries, frozen Tokyo pudding, sur-
mounted with an attractive miniature
Japanese parasol, Japanese nut cake,
and iced orange Pekoe tea with mint.
An enjoyable program was given,
with Jack Hellinger acting as toast-
master. An unusual number of clever
toasts were given.
Then came the dainty Japanese
playlet, "A Flower of Yeddo," in which
Eleanor Nunn, Constance Patten, Lu-
trelle Lafrage and Dick Duffy, Jr.,
acted very well in the roles and cos-
tumes of true Orientals. The stage
was marvelously beautiful, with true
Japanese daintiness, enhanced by
splendid lighting effects. Miss Edith
Hammack showed a surprising artistic
talent in having painted a beautiful
Japanese, moonlit scene for the back-
ground. The playlet was perfectly di-
rected by Miss Maisie Bookhardt.
The senior scrap bag, by Ellen Han-
cock and Donoh Hanks of the Junior
class, was the concluding highlight of
the evening. Humorous characteristic
and prophesying gifts were presented
to the members of the graduating
class, announsed by clever poems writ-
ten by Miss Hancock.
The program was concluded with the
singing of "Hail to New Bern High."

bodies of the high schools in the New Bern-Greenville,Washington triangle.
Our affirmative team met Greenville's negative at Washington, while our
negative was debating Washington's afiirmative at Greenville. All the
affirmative teams in the triangle won by a 2 to 1 vote, so no school earned
the right to take part in the State finals at Chapel Hill.
The contest between our teams to decide the winner of the Kiwanis
prize was held in Griffin Auditorium on April 11. Jack Barber won the
decision of the judges as best speaker, and was presented a five-dollar gold
piece by Mr. E. L. Lashley, president of the Kiwanis Club. All of the
debaters were awarded red chenille monograms by the school.
