For this issue a very popular
student has been hit by the spot
light. Johnny Sloan, who comes
to P.J.C. from Aberdeen, North
Carolina, is a prominent student
and the subject of this column.
Johnny is quite a character and
as a result he has many friends,
mostly girls. Johnny has a witty
comment everytime you see him, ^
whether in class, on the campus,
on the football field or in the chow
hall. He is noted for his friendli
ness, courtesy, and willingness to
help anyone he can.
Johnny is first string quarter
back on the football team and he
does his part well. He scored the
only touchdown against North
Greenville and gave his best dur
ing the entire game. Johnny
seems to play hardest when the
chips are down.
He graduated from high school
in Aberdeen where he partici
pated in basketball, football, and
baseball. He was a prominent
memiber of his class and took part
in the class clubs and activities.
Johnny is majoring in textiles
and plans to continue his educa
tion at Catawba or Elon as soon
as he graduates from P.J.C. He
is a talented writer of themes and
letters (to his many girl friends).
Among Johnny’s hobbies, sleep
ing is number one. But he also
enjoys listening to the radio and
playing football. Johnny likes be
bop and semi-classical music.
Johnny is one of the neatest
and best-looking men on the cam
pus. He is always clean and neat
ly dressedi He keeps his hair well
combed in duck fashion. Johnny
has pretty white teeth, a baby
face, and the physique of Tarzan
or Charles Atlas.
Johnny’s body is here in Max
ton but his mind and heart are in
Greensboro where a certain girl
is enrolled at WC.
■At the age of 19, Johnny is met
with the problem of being draft
ed unless he keeps his grades at
a certain level. So far he has fair
ly good grades and he studies
when he gets ready.
As the “Spotlight” for this is
sue goes out, we would like to
wish a swell fellow the best of
luck in the future.

Scotties Clash With Chowan College
In Red Springs Park Tomorrow Night
Tomorrow night the P.J.C. j
“Scotties” will meet Chowan in
Robbins Park at Red Springs for
their first home game of the sea
son. Though this year’s team has
nothing but defeats on record they
are very determined to win this
game. For a change they will be
playing against a squad that has
no more players than their own.
This should be an enlightning fact
because so far this season the op
ponents have been able to send
in fresh reserves and to keep up
a fast, steady pace while the “Scot
ties” only became more and more
worn out. Even though our team
has been up against teams with
more reserves, larger men, and
more experience, they have never
given up. They still have that
We would like to urge every
one who can possibly attend the
ball game tomorrow night to do
so. A good crowd in the stands
would certainly make the team
feel good. We have a coach who
has worked untiringly with a
group of boys so small that many
coaches would have given up the
effort. We have a team that fights
.on, even when the chips are down.
We, then, should at least show
our appreciation by supporting
our team with our presence at the
game. We will meet you in Red
Springs tomorrow night.

spiritual thoughts go to the little
room provided for just that, at
