The Athletic association is a new feature in the school pwBgram, *• having been organized this fall under the direction of Miss Faye ■ Holt. At the beginning of the sea- [, son there were 65 or 70 girls tak- ►; ing part and coming out regularly every afternoon for practice in the gymnasium. The ones who ap- peared in the program were those " that came to practice most regu- ■■ larly, showed the most interest, I' and became the mo.st skilled in the '' art of tumbling. Although only the ones who had made the first team appeared in stage perform- ance, there were about six others who were close rivals and who ■ were placed on the second team. ^ Dressed in gym suits, the girls r. performed the following stunts on mats which had been placed on the ’ stage: donkey kick, diving for dis- } tance, and diving for height. Keith Carpenter, Ramelle Burle- son, Irma Lowder, Helen Harring- ton, Virginia Harley, Amy Fry, r’ Frances Bostick, Lucinne Whit- - lock and Nell Denning were the only ones who succeeded in learn ing the back bend. Only a few " girls are able to do the split. These stunts are diificult and require a great deal of practice and exer- Advanced tumbling takes up . flips and pyramid building. The it program concluded with two simple stunts of this type called “a bus opens” and “the gateway to fun.” The girls who took part in the tumbling program were Keith Car penter, Ruth Hill, Hazel Mauldin, ,(Amy Fry, Ramelle Burleson, Irma Lowder, Helen Harrington, Vir ginia Harley, Rachel Tucker, Ra- “melle Lowder, Edith Mauldin, “Grace Cranford, Frances Bo.stick, Lucinne Whitlock, Helen Tucker, and Nell Denning. Students Shown ;] Science Pictures I For the past two years the Al- kLbemarle high school has been hav ing moving pictures for educa tion. This year the pictures, lim ited to the science and biology classes, give the explanation of scientific facts. By these shows ^he biology students have been •-able to understand the life of beach and sea animals. One of , the.se was “Underground Water” ^showing the construction of a well and of water soaking in the soil and being filtered. Another was about the clouds and rainfall. The object of showing these pictures is to teach visual educa tion to the student through imag ination. It has been said that one picture is worth ten thousand words. This phase of education jeems both easy and interesting to dllthe students. ::Central School ^ Publishes Paper lli': The fir.st i.ssue of the Seven 5tars ha.s been published by the ventral Elementary school, with 3ara Jean Austin as editor-in- kflthief.

They defeated Albemarle 25-0, but don’t think that any one of those four touchdowns was easy, and don’t let anybody tell you that it was easy keeping Albemarle from scoring. Those boys are ig norant or something. They would not believe they were defeated. Right down to the last whistle of the game, a big powerful, am bitious, good-natured team was knocking at Barium’s goal. “By the way, this was Barium’s first visit to the Stanly metropolis. It will certainly not be the last. The treatment accorded the team and visitors by the school officials, by the team, by the rooters and by the populace in general, was of such a high order that it stands unique. Instead of the town treat ing the visiting team as enemies to be beaten on the field and teas- I ed on the streets, they were treat-' ed like honored guests as though I the whole town was holding Ba rium Day. The cheering for good plays by Barium was almost as | loud and as enthusia.stic as for the, good playing by Albemarle. The supper given the visitors after the I e-ame was a delightful occasion. I The officiating could not have been better or fairer. All in all Albe marle stands just where her initial would put her. Since “A” is the beginning of the alphabet, we’ll nut Albemarle right on top when it comes to being a fine town to “Here’s just a thoufrht: Albe marle loses very few of this year’s players.

Proceeds Go to Journalistic Club for ‘Full Moon’ In an exciting and thrilling cage battle in the new gym December 8, the Women’s team, composed of high school teachers, defeated the Girls’ Varsity 6-4, while the Men’s team, made up of faculty members, was downed by the Bulldogs 21-6. On the invincible Women’s team there played such stars as Miss Doris Cockerham, Miss Winnie Moore, Mrs. Wells Rogers and Miss Gladys Hicks from W. C. U. N. C., Miss Chicora Caughman, Miss Wil lie Ellerbe, guards from Winthrop, Miss Annabel Vester, guard from Greensboro college, and Miss Rose Laws from Duke and Miss Fay Holt of High Point college, for- The teachers, rather slow in starting, soon came through with some surprisingly good shots, with Miss Laws taking honors as high scorer with four points, and Miss Holt, girls’ coach, scoring two points. Mrs. Rogers and Miss Ves ter showed up well as guards. The Girls’ Varsity played about half the game, with substitutes playing the other half. Edith Maul din and Virginia Long scored the four points against the teachers. Full of spills and thrills, the game of Pedagogues versus Pupils was refereed by Coach Canipe. Between halves the Women’s team enjoyed light refreshments of oranges and stick candy served by water-boy Eddie Gehring. In the game of Veterans versus the Varsity it was the Bulldogs’ winning fight from start to finish. R. C.
