Circulation Managers Kenneth Roberts ALBEMARLE, N. C., MAY 31, 1939 CONGRATULATIONS! Hats off to the winners! Yes, the Full Moon staff wishes to take this opportunity to congratulate all contest winners. First, we recognize our music director, Mr. Fry; the Boys’ Glee club and chorus: the quartet and soloist. Bill Mann, C. B. Efird, Claud Shankle, and Bill Hough. All these boys and Sammy Andrew, one of Miss Worsham’s pupils, gave splendid performances at the state music con test in Greensboro, winning six first places, one second, and one third. Following the music came the typing contest, in which Billie Ray Drye, with no errors, captured from over 7,000 entries, first place. Keep up the good work, Billie Ray! Albemarle High netters emerged victorious in the South Piedmont tennis tournament, as a result of their excellent playing. Josephine Whitley and Bill Mann were top scorers. Nice going, “champs!” We are_proud of j^ou, honor society initiates.

Chci^n fd?' your popularity, leadership ability, and versatility, you will be expected to be dependable and unselfish in your efforts to bring about still closer student-faculty and student-student relation ships. Our compliments to the creative writing class and the staff of the Al-Hi-Script, who have this year edited two attractive and interesting numbers of the first literary magazine ever published in A. H. S. This publication should be continued, for it motivates the students’ interest in writing. To the _ seniors we offer our congratulations and best wishes. Especially is honor due the first twelfth grade graduates. And yet one more time—congratulations to A. H. S.! We are proud of you and proud to know that we are a part of you. Again you are on the Southern association list, a rating which assures your graduates of acceptance at any college without entrance examinations. You have installed, this year, a chapter of the National Honor so ciety; you have been given a double “A” rating due to the fact that a twelfth grade has been added. We congratulate you not only on these achievements but also on the fact that you have teachers who train students thoroughly and students who have “what it takes” to be winners! I Reviewed by Dill Mann “Northwest Passage” brings to view an almost unknown figure in the early history of the United States, Major Rogers, and shows through his incredible exploits that he was one of the greatest of In dian fighters. Langdon Towne, a young artist, after getting into trouble at Har vard for drawing a mock picture of one of the trustees and later being threatened with arrest and imprisonment at home for criti cising some of the King’s officers, joins Rogers’s Rangers and fol lows him on these expeditions. Soon after, the war is over, and Major marries the girl who is en gaged to Towne but who puts mon ey and position above love. Towne, crushed by this, goes to England ,to ...Iprget her. Hg con tinues hil^ study of art th^re, liv ing n boring, nnsY^’^ting^ liJ:^- I After he has been .pn?" London for hbout a ydar, Be ’sees Major Rogers, who tells fantastic tales of a Northwest passage. About this time he receives a contract to go to America and paint a series of Indian pictures. He then joyfully accepts Rogers’s invitation to help him discover the Northwest pas sage. “Northwest Passage” has the elements—literary distinction, his torical accuracy, humor and ro mance—to make the book most en joyable. HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT IT? Someone has said, “We indicate our character and ambition by the use of our leisure time.” There are three months of leisure ahead. How do we plan to use this time? Of course, thinking about it now, we are looking forward just to eating, sleeping, enjoying shows and parties, and dreaming away a drowsy good time. And it will be just that for the first three or four days. Then we shall be faced with the startling realization that this reveling isn’t what we thought it would be. As we begin to wonder what we are going to do the rest of the summer vacation, we take the question of a job or a hobby into con sideration. Through a job we get experience for an occupation we may take up later. Then there is the question of spending money a job easily solves that problem. ’ An interesting hobby is an ideal diversion for the long, hot sum mer days. Starting from something we are mildly interested in, a hobby can develop into an engaging, profitable business. And even though a hobby might not reward us in a monetary w'ay, it can still be a thoroughly enjoyable pastime. Summer sports can’t be left out. There’s nothing like a peppy swim or a set of tennis to regain that old vim, vigor, and vitality. Remember those best-sellers we’ve been planning to read? Well A summer is the best time imaginable to catch up on our reading, /a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade, our favorite lawn chair under a shady tree, and we’re ready to crawl in for a quiet session of good reading. Naturally we all like to travel, to make new contacts, to see new places, to live new experiences; so why not take a trip this summer? Through jobs, hobbies, sports, and. travel we can improve our character, broaden our outlook on life, and work further toward the realization of our ambitions. HONORS WON AT W. C.

FAREWEl.L GRADUATION DAY I’ve labored hard from day to day To gain all knowledge that I may. So that in the end there’d be A graduation day for me. I’ve studied books both large and small; Some were hard—no fun at all. But I was sure I’d win some way A diploma commencement day. Now joy and gladness dispel fear. For graduation day is here! Persistent work and patience too Are the things that brought me through. In my hand I hope you see A scroll that’s very dear to me. How much I’ve won nobody can say Till I have proved its worth some day. —MARGARET TURNER.
