Senior Class Enters
HI SCHOOL TEACHERS
The Senior Class of this year has
been well represented in high school
activities other than athletics.
About half of the class are members
of the high school dramatic club, and
those who have taken the most active
parts are Alex McLean, Lester Gilli-
kin, Newbern Piland, and Archie Pate.
Alex and Newbern appeared in the
first playi of the year “The Valiant”
which was presented a number of
times in Goldsboro: In the “Maker of
Dreams” Lester and Newbern took
leading parts. Archie Pate, a very
comical actor, appeared in “The Mar
riage Proposali.” Alex McLean is not
only a good actor but he is also the
president of the club. Not only in the
dramatic club is the class well repre
sented but large number of the stu
dents are interested in the science and
Part of the senior class is also par
tially responsible for the issues of the
Goldsboro High School News that have
been distributed among the High
school students this year. The paper
was led by Merrette Moore, also a
senior. The entire class did their part
of helping to make the paper a success
in that each one subscribea, but tb
Billy Simmons, business manager,
goes the credit of pulling the paper
W^hen volunteers were called for
the triangular debating team, Alex
McLean went to the call and did a
great part in helping to carry the
team through the most successful year
in the history of Goldsboro High

least it seems as though he is, because
on May 8,* a short one-act play was
presented by him in Chapel. Aaron,
who is the author acted as stage man
ager, director and costume manager.
He hasn’t named his play yet, but has
several names under consideration.
