Students Send Aid To Germans A box containing clothing, school supplies such as pencils, paper, notebooks, ink, sports equipment and other articles is headed toward our adopted school in Germany. These articles were collected at an assembly at which time each student brought some article to be sent. This assembly was only the beginning of the drive which is being carried out in the homerooms in cooperation with SA council. This box is not expected to reach Germany before our school closes as it takes eight or nine weeks for such a box to arrive there. Plans to secure money to buy supplies for the school are being made. William Street School is also collecting and sending boxes to Germany. “First Lady,” the Goldmasquers' play to be presented at the New York State Teachers College on Saturday, April 24, had its first showing in Goldsboro on Monday night, April 19, and was presented again on Tuesday, April 20. The play is a satire on Washing ton politics and is written by George S. Kaufman and Katherine Dayton. Lucy Chase Wayne has presidential ambitions for her hus band, Stephen Wayne, now Secre tary of State, while her worst ene^ my, Irene Hibbard, is sponsoring a young senator from the West. To draw attention from the western senator, Lucy starts a boom for Irene’s aging Supreme Court Jus tice husband. The boom gets out of hand, however, and it takes all of- Lucy’s political strategy to de feat the Supreme Court Justice and promote her husband’s nomi nation. The cast includes some of the Goldmasquers' outstanding play ers. Ruth Edgerton, who made her debut in “Cinderella” and has since been seen in the prize winning play at Chapel Hill “The Flute and the Vine,” and in “The Land Is Bright,” returns to the stage to play the part of Lucy Chase Wayne. Steph en Wayne is played by Carl Casey, who has appeared in two prize winning plays at Chapel Hill, “Gold Is Where You Don’t Find It” and “The Flute and the Vine,” and in “Heaven Can Walt,” “The Lady Who Came to Stay,” “The Shepherd’s Song,” and “The Land Is Bright.” Carl has also partici pated in a number of radio shows, including the Dixie FM network presentation of “Tell Tale Heart,” “Three Strikes You’re Out,” and “The Test.” Experienced Players Mary Olive Grady returns to the stage after her excellent perform ance in “The Land Is Bright” to play the part of Irene Hibbard. She has also been seen in the plays “Cinderella,” “Janie,” “Bethlehem Road,” “Our Town,” and “The Shepherd’s Song,” and has taken part in several radio programs, “Legend of Dust,” “The Key,” and “The Test,” which were presented First Class (See Goldmasquers on Rating of the HI NEWS by the National Scholastic Press Association is FIRST CLASS, Excellent, according to the rating sKeet received the day the paper went to press. This rating is that received for the past two or three years by this association, but, as indicated below, the paper was rated second class by the Co lumbia Scholastic Association system of rating. Even though the National Scho lastic Press Association gave the First Class rating to the paper, it did stress the fact that the gossip in the paper detracted from its quality; and the rating sheet also called attention to the fact that many of the headlines in the paper were too short for the column space. The Goldsboro HI NEWS re ceived a rating of “two” frohi the Columbia Scholastic Press Asso ciation. This poor showing for the paper was due to the fact that the paper has been “top heavy,” so to speak, with gossip. The critic who wrote the paper of the ratings said that the tone lowered what would other wise rate as a “very creditable paper which would easily make first place.” The tone of the paper, according to this critic, was very poor, and the suggestion was made that the paper look to the elimi nation of the “girl-—boy” gossip. Newspapers, 301 to 750 pupils classification: First place rating to Green Lights, Greenville High School; and second place ratings in the same class to the four fol lowing papers: Goldsboro Hi News, Goldsboro High School; Loud Speaker, Elizabeth City High School; Facts and Fun, Thomas- ville High School; and tVie Red and Will Appear In Who’s Who Thirteen seniors from GHS have been chosen to appear in the 1948 edition of “Who’s Who In Ameri can High Schools.” They were selected on the basis of scholarship and service to the community and the school.

Father Schultz Speaks In GHS “The purpose of life” was the topic chosen by Father John Schultz of the Catholic University, Washington, D. C., who spoke at a recent SA assembly. He said that every high school student wants to be a success. Anything is a success if it accom plishes the thing for which it was made. A man is a success if he acts as he was made to act—as a rational creature. Father Schultz said that a man of character controls his life by reason. A man with no character controls his life by feeling. Those who act by reason have intelligence and integrity, and are free men. The speaker stated that because we will probably fight Russia, we niust develop men and women of real character. Only one thing will save this nation from commun ism, and that is a nation of peo ple who will not pay attention to feeling, but will act by reason. Father Lawrence Newman of St. Mary’s Catholic Church introduced the speaker. Polly Edgerton, vice president of the SA, was in charge of the assembly.
