" CLASS PROPHECY JUNE 1970 The members of the class of 1950 had its 20th reunion on the above date at the newly erected $600, 000 high school in Northampton County. The meeting was called to order by Judge Elois Spady, now Federal Judge for the state of New Hampshire. Devotions were led by the Rev. Eugene Waters, and the minutes were read by Pauline Wright who is now secretary to the Dean of Men at Howard University. Next was the Roll Call. Many pleasant memories were revived as familiar names were called. First was Abraham Wescott who is now pitching for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Alvin CoUins, Ernest Rogers and Clyde Garrison are completing their Ph.D. at Howard University. Paul Hallet and his wife, Mrs. Hallet, the former Marian Powell, now own one of the largest ranches in Texas where they raise the world’s fastest race horses and pure bred Shorthorn beef cattle. Julius Bailey is employed as their head cow puncher. Our famous artists, Robert Brickhouse and Frisell Harmon are npw exhibiting their Masterpieces in the New York Museum of Art: they are portraits of George Jordan, inventor, and singer, Jinella Baker. The Flat Foot Circus, owned by Charles Joyner, has the following persons partici¬ pating in the acts; Robert Allen, clown; Hattie Goodwin, tight rope walker; Helen Trower as the Fat Lady; and the thrill of the Midway that you would not want to miss is the " Meat-Chop- Sisters " doing the Huckle Buck. They are none other than Deloris Mason, Marion Giddens, and Bessie Robinson. Frances Press is owner of one of the largest chains of beauty salons in the country. Working with her are Daniel Sample as head shampooer, Maurice Wynder as comb presser and Louis Rogers as hair presser. Natalie Beckless and her husband Roosevelt Townsend, are coybwners of the largest night club on Broadway. They are now featuring that famous blues finger, Cloresia Hargrove, accompanied by Vernessa Fitchett on her alto sax. Miss Hargrove ' s old flame, Dr. David Handy, Chief of Staff of the Claraton Hospital in Nebraska, and his Superintendent of Nurses, Miss Ida Morris, are engaged and were present opening night. Johnnie Watts, owner of a five story department store in West Virginia employs Beatrice Bailey as floor walker and Verneda Watson as head clerk. Rev. George Wyatt is pastor of the St. Peter ' s Cathedral in Nevada. One of his favorite texts is " Shall We Gather At That River? " Some of his outstanding members are Deacon Charles Robinson, Deacon Charlie Christian, Superintendent of the Sunday School, Alston Morris, Pianist, Shirley Weeks and Mary Smith. Lity Stevens and Laura Hargrove, Ushers. Thomas Wynder the World ' s Featherweight Champion will fight the famous girl boxer, Claudine Lewis at Madison Square Garden in the near future. A ringside seat is being re¬ served for the Sleepy Mortician, Morris Spady, who is watching for ? ? ????????? In Hollywood Eleanor Ames, Ira George, Alvin Sample and Elnora Savage have just completed the MiUion Dollar Academy Award Production, " Booby Trap Baby " . The Week ' s Taxi Company, owned and operated by Louise Weeks employs Alice Collins and Mary Savage as drivers. It is rumored that their fleet of hydrogen mobiles are equipped with two way radios and jet motors. Eugene Harmon, Editor-In-Chief of the Ebony has frequently been trying to expose the fortune telling business of Swami Moses Wilkins. We are wondering how this will affect the career of his wife, the former Miss Tabitha Trower who is now singing in Hollywood. Dorothy Hughes is owner of the " Make It Or Break It Garage " , where she employs Rosa Smith as head mechanic. Mae Mapp has just sold her large shrubbery farm in Harevalley and opened up a Lady ' s Dress Shoppe in the town of Exmore. That " Lucky Old Son " who has nothing to do but roll around in his T-Model and sell brushes all day is none other than Jenever Wright accompanied by his fiancee of 24 y ears, Evelina Lister. After having completed discussions on the affairs of our former classmates, we found that there was no further business we adjourned to meet again at Northampton County High School, June 6, 1971. Judge Elois Spady, President Pauline Wright, Secretary SENIOR CLASS HISTORY In September 1946, approximately one hundred and twenty bewildered, freshmen entered Northampton County High School. At first it was rather difficult for us to become adjusted. There was the embarrassment of bumping into upperclassmen or wandering into the wrong classroom and many other things that added to our confusion. Due to the cooperative spirit and enthusiasm possessed by our class, we soon overcame our plight. We were immediately divided into three sections. Our homeroom teachers were Miss Crawford, Miss Purdue and Mr. Joynes. With the care and guidance of these competent instructors we were soon on our way to a very successful year. During that year several members of our class participated in various extra-curricular activities. There was the Talent Show which featured talent from the entire class. Among those participating were, Louise Weeks, D. Handy and others. Under the direction of Miss A. K. Flagg the Dramatic Club entered the Virginia High School Dramatic Tournament. The play " Still Stands the House " featuring Eleanor Ames in the leading role captured the second prize. Several members of our class were engaged in Athletics and participated in the Homecoming activities. September 1947. Sophisticated Sophomores. As we entered this year we were full of ambition and less confused and frightened. Again we were divided into three sections. Our homeroom teachers were Miss Baker (Now Mrs. Collins), Miss Patterson and Miss Hall. After becoming adjusted to our schedule we settled down to work at the task of making that year as successful as the preceding one. George Wyatt and David Handy, who were members of the Basketball Team went to the state wide Basketball Tournament which was held at the Booker T. Washington High School in Norfolk. At that time L. Weeks became co-captain of the Cheering Squad. Our class sponsored two plays that year, " Wisdom Tooth " and " Just Among Us Girls " . " Wisdom Tooth " featured Charles Joyner, Mary Church, Elnora Savage and Catherine Kates. " Just Among Us Girls " featured Alston Morris, Annie Dixon, Evelina Lister, C. Hargrove and E. Ames. Representatives from our class in the Homecoming Festivities were, Mae Mapp, George Wyatt, Laura Hargrove and Alvin Sample. The end of the year left us looking forward to a bright future at ' Dear Old Northampton. We entered school in September 1948 as honorable Juniors full of expectations and anticipations for the coming year. Our homeroom teachers were Miss Hall, who was later replaced by Miss Green and Mrs. Collins. Again we were prominent in the fields of Drama, Music and Athletics. We were very proud of the fact that Louise Weeks was runner up for Miss Northampton. Many of our boys played starring roles on the gridiron and basketball court. It was David Handy who made the winning touchdown in our Homecoming Game. Charles Robinson and George Wyatt were equally as active on the basketball court. This year we sponsored the Annual Junior-Senior Prom. With the help of our advisors and the hard work of the class we gave one of the most memorable proms in the history of Northampton. September 1949, Dignified Seniors? ? We have at last reached the rung of the ladder we looked forward to for so long. Our homeroom teachers were Miss Blanchard, and Mr. E. L. Williams. With a number of tasks before us, it was necessary to begin work right away. David Handy was elected Pres. , and with the help of our advisors we began work and we have made great progress. Through the hard work of our class Miss Mae Mapp won the title of Miss Homecoming " . Our classmates gave outstanding performances with the pig skin. During our last year tragedy struck our class, when we lost our classmate, Robert Jones. We feel deeply indebted to Mr. Smith and to the members of the Faculty. For we realize that without their aid we would have suffered many hardships that were averted by their kind, understanding guidance. This ends our history at Northampton and it is a history of which we are truly proud. We sincerely hope that it was as interesting to read as it was to live.

To eliminate ill feelings and arguments, we have itemized each article that is to be given away upon our departure. To our dear Alma Mater who has been our beacon light, and has stuck with us through bad days as well as good ones, we solemnly leave our loyalty, and unwavering determination to succeed so that the banner will forever wave for Northampton County High. To our Principal and faculty who through our years have inspired us to always do our best, we leave our sincere appreciation and many thanks. To our sincere and understanding parents who have striven to their utmost ability to make this portion of our career successful, we say, " It is our determination to do as much for you as you have done for us, and to make you proud of us in the near future. " To the Junior Class we bequeath the pride and joy of our hearts, our Basic Mathe¬ matics, hoping that they will love it as much as we hated it. To the Sophomore Class we gladly leave the vacant space under the seats in room 2 for chewing gum, which they will be glad to use when Miss Blanchard yells, " fifteen off for chewing " . To the Freshmen we bequeath the ability to conduct themselves properly on the stairways and in the corridors. LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT Robert Brickhouse wills his artistic ability to Clifton Watts.

Student JUNIOR " A " CLASS In the year of 1947, we, a group of advanced graders, entered the school of Northampton County High. We were excited but determined. When brought before the principal, Mr. J. F. Banks, we were assigned to the Freshman " A” Class, with Mr. H. A. Brown as our homeroom teacher. As Freshmen, we were eager to participate in all curricular and extra curricular activities. The year was a little difficult at times, but with the guidance of the teachers we were able to cast our thoughts towards our Sophomore year. Being acquainted with the school we found the Sophomore year more interesting than our Freshman year. Our Sophohnore year began with a new principal of the school, Mr. W. H. Smith. Our homeroom teacher was Mrs. H. D. Upshur. As runner-up for ’’Miss Homecoming”, Miss Anna Mapp brought honor to our class. The year was prosperous and interesting. With Mr. W. W. King as homeroom teacher, we approached the Junior year with more ambitions. We are looking forward to the Senior year, which we hope will give us a new perspective on life and lead us to prosperity and a career of intelligence and leadership. To the Seniors, we wish much success and a bright future. We will strive diligently to follow the bright light that you have entrusted in our care. CLASS OFFICERS PRESIDENT. VICE PRESIDENT . ..

King JUNIOR " B " CLASS _ On September 9, 1947, we entered Northampton County High School as a group of elementary graduates. Since we were Freshmen and quite a large class, we were divided into three sections, Freshman " A " , Freshman " B " and Freshman " C M . We were designated Freshman " B ' s " under the leadership of Miss M. V. Blanchard. We progressed rapidly; several students were added and a few dropped out. The next year, 1943, we entered as sophisticated Sophomores with a new teacher Miss L. B. Patterson. Some of the students began to participate in some of the ac¬ tivities. Homecoming came and one of our students, John Weeks, became King. How proud we felt! September 1949, we entered with high ambitions and anticipations for the coming year. New members were added to the faculty and one of the new teachers, Miss G. C. Ellis, was appointed our homeroom teacher. From our class Miss Evelyn Ames was a runner-up for " Miss Homecoming " . With our Junior year almost completed we are looking forward to giving the Seniors a memorable Prom. We hope that this Prom will be a great success. Our aim is to be better citizens in our school throughout the coming year. We wish the Seniors of 1950 much success. CLASS OFFICERS PRESIDENT. VICE PRESIDENT . . . SECRETARY . ASST. SECRETARY . .

Ellis SOPHOMORE " A” CLASS On September 9, 1949, we entered the Northampton County High School from our respective elementary schools. We were sent to Mr. A. B. Whitehead and with eager and frightened faces we sought his assistance in organizing our class. Through his wise guidance we became the Freshman A Class of " 43”. Before the end of the school term many of our classmates had failed or dropped out. Therefore in September 1949, as Sophomore A Class we numbered only 34. Our plans are: 1. To be useful American Citizens and to help our race achieve its rightful recognition. 2. To be respected Juniors the next year. We hope for the Seniors of ' 50 an abundant and prosperous life. With Miss L. B.

Class of Northampton County High School, entered as Freshmen in the year of 1948. During our Freshman year, Miss Turner was our instructor and she w r as a very good one. In that year, Luberta Felton, a member of our class was the ’ ' Queen” of our school on Homecoming. That year was a very interesting one for us. September 8 , 1949, we entered our Sophomore year with Mrs. M. B. Collins as our instructor. Also this year we had another pupil from our class who was Vaughn Downing; he was " King ' ' of the school " Homecoming Day " . Carl Bailey and Franklin Victory were the athletic stars of our class. Carl Bailey was one of the " Football Stars " at " Homecoming " , and Franklin Victory was the only one who stayed in all the games during the two football seasons without being called out. Franklin Victory was a very prominent basketball star. He made the third highest score in the first game of the season.

The class got underway with a very dull start; this situation was an entirely new experience; their first year in the Northampton County High School. The glorious morning of September 9, 1949 the Sophomore " C " entered Northampton County High for the second time, under the guidance of a new homeroom teacher, Mrs. H. D. Upshur. We moved along swiftly, taking part in the Homecoming activities, to raise money for our King and Queen with the hope of our winning all honors. We fought ' a losing battle but with courage. We hope that our class will be one of the most successful classes in the near future. CLASS OFFICERS PRESIDENT. VICE PRESIDENT . . . SECRETARY. ASST. SECRETARY.., TREASURER. CHAPLAIN .

We arrived here on a beautiful September morning along with many of our school friends from elementary school. We were assigned to Miss Green ' s homeroom and later transferred to the Library, and Miss Turner became our homeroom teacher. At that time there were forty-one of us; however at the present time there are only thirty-eight of us. We have traveled far along the rocky path of the education road and have learned many inspiring and useful things. To become better individuals, better students, and eventually better citizens of our respective communities has been adopted as our main objective. Through the leadership of our class officers and home room teacher we expect to achieve our goal. CLASS OFFICERS PRESIDENT .

This was a different situation from the one we had experienced in elementary school. We were bewildered as freshmen usually are, but we had willing minds and the determination to over come any obstacle that might arise. Since there was such a large number of freshmen, we were divided into three sections. We were sent to room 4 where we were told that our homeroom teacher would be Mr. A. B. Whitehead. Our section was designated Section B. During the second week of school, we organized our class and began to strive hard to uphold the high standards of our school. The purposes of our organization were to bring about better citizenship in the school and communi¬ ty relations and to learn the correct parliamentary procedures. Our group was not different from any other freshman class that has stepped upon this threshold for the first time. Some of us had various talents and interests. We had members of our class taking parts in the different activities of the school. We were proud to have as our contestants for the Homecoming Activities Miss Emma Satchell and Mr. Charles King. We found it very hard to adapt ourselves to our new environment; however, with the assistance of our teacher, we climbed the rung of freshman success. Our Class has made no outstanding achievement throughout the year, but we promise our ALMA MATER that we’ll do the very best we can during the re¬ maining three years.

B. Whitehead We, the members of the Freshman " C " Class, entered Northampton County High School September 8, 1948. We entered with the typical feeling of all freshmen who enter a school for the first time —bewildered, excited and afraid. However, under the guidance of our homeroom teacher, Miss Hattie Green, we were able to adjust ourselves to the program and activities of the school. We took an active part in the Homecoming exercise and were honored by having our candidate, Miss Emily Johnson, win third place as " Miss Homecoming of 1949 " , Mr. Fraiser Brickhouse was our Contestant for " King " . Our class was represented in the Dramatic Club, on the basketball and soft ball teams, and we have rendered many other programs at our ALMA MATER. With the honor of having been among the first freshmen to enter this school at the beginning of the second half of the century, we have begun one of the most successful years of our school career. We have aimed our arrows at the goal of success, and with the aid of the most cooperative teachers we will surely succeed. CLASS OFFICERS PRESIDENT .Jennie Marie Godwin VICE PRESIDENT.Mary E.

A few years ago the local clubs were organized into a statewide association. Since that time delegates from local chapters have been sent to Virginia State College to attend conferences. At the conference, officers are elected for the State Association and plans made for the year. Since the state¬ wide Association of the local clubs has been organized, we have been sending delegates to the annual conferences. Our membership has increased considerably since that time. Interest in the club has also grown. We have had the honor of electing two Chapter Mothers who are Mrs. Frances Allen and Mrs. Dorothy Press. They have worked faithfully helping us to promote our programs. Our Chapter has had the honor of having two State Officers. We are fortunate enough to have a member of our chapter, Miss Rebecca Downing, serving as State President this year. This has made us more anxious to promote the program of our organization. We shall strive to the best of our ability to support our State and Local organizations so that they will be the best. The Graduating Class of 1950 shall be missed by all New Homemakers. We extend to them our best wishes for a prosperous career and a happy future. Our Adult Homemakers Club is continuing to stress efforts for the im¬ provement of civic, social and family life problems in our community. Several of the members are interested in problems with Child Care.

Under the care and guidance of our various instructors, we have made great progress. It is our aim to develop competent rural leaders through cooperation, thrift, and intelligent choice of agricultural vocations. The Northampton Agricultural Department has had several set backs; however, its membership has increased to sixty-three. OFFICERS President. Vice-President. Secretary . Treasurer . Reporter.

Williams HOMECOMING Northampton County High School’s annual Homecoming festivities took place on November 4th. More than a score of gloriously decorated floats constituted the parade which proved to be a breath takingly beautiful spectacle. The parade started at the school, traveled to Cape Charles where it was led into the city proper by a beautiful bicycle brigade of Cheerleaders. From there the parade proceeded to follow a route which led through Harevalley and then back to school, where it was greeted by approximately 700 spectators, including alumni and students awaiting the big event of the day. This Homecoming was truly one of the most magnificent extravaganzas in the history of Northampton County High School. At the halftime of the game between Northampton County ' s " Golden Bulls” and the Sussex County " Tigers " , Miss Mae Mapp was crowned " Miss Homecoming " by Mr. W. H. Smith, the principal. Mr. Vaughn Downing who won the title of " King " of the campus, was Miss Homecoming ' s escort for the day. Attendants were Miss Emily Johnson, runner-up, and Miss Emma Sate hell. In the Homecoming game, the " Golden Bulls " won an overwhelming victory over the Sussex County " Tigers " . The score 30 to 2. 2 X We believe that a good High School is interested not only in aiding students to develop scholastic abilities and interests, it is also interested in aiding pupils to solve their problems, personal, social, scholastic and health. With this in mind, the first guidance Committee was set up in our school at the beginning of the current school year. It is hoped that every pupil will feel free to talk to us, because we want to help any problem; in other words, your problems are our problems. STUDENT COUNCIL IN ACTION I The first Student Council of Northampton County High was organized at the beginning of the Second Semester of the term of 1S49-50. Through this organization we hope to develop a democratic relationship between the student body and the faculty. In organizing the first Student Council, we have taken a great responsibility and much hard work upon our shoulders. Nevertheless, we feel confident that we shall succeed in laying a foundation which will support a great organization in our school. With the careful guidance of our competent instructors and the cooperation of the student body, we shall endeavor to establish a Student Government that the school can depend upon and feel greatly proud of. The Northampton County High School Chorus was organized October 1947 under the supervision of Mrs. Wyatt, Mrs. Upshur and Mrs. Collins. Upon the leaving of Mrs. Wyatt in December 194B, Mr. King and the twenty male voices joined the chorus, bringing the total meml)ership to sixty. With the cooperation of its members and advisers, the chorus is ex¬ pecting to accomplish its main objective which is " To develop with the students of the high school an appreciation for music " .

Secretary.Louise Weeks DRAMATIC CLUB The Northampton County High School Little Theater was organized on October We presented two plays during the year, ' I Shall Be Waiting " and " Three Taps On The Wall " . With the guidance of our instructors the year was a very successful one. We have approached the year 1950. Our two main projects for this year are entering the Dramatic Tournament and publishing a school paper. To the graduating Class of 1950 we extend our best wishes for a successful year. CHORUS ihrtl PATROL CLUB The BOYS SAFETY PATROL CLUE is one of the most important clubs in the school. Since safety is being stressed more and more all over the United States, we find it necessary to keep our club functioning year after year. This organization is designed to develop and maintain high standards of orderliness and consideration in the school, on the school grounds, and on the buses. In addition to their duties of keeping order, these boys see to it that each person crosses the road safely when he gets on or off the bus. These boys should serve as reminders to those pupils who do not observe the safety standards of the school. OFFICERS PRESIDENT. VICE PRESIDENT SECRETARY. CHAPLAIN__ LIEUTENANT SPONSOR.
