• To Our New Teachers
We wish to welcome the new teachers
to our High School. We hope they will
enjoy their stay with us this year^and
many years to come. It is our ai
help them in every possible way. We
are sure, when the year has gone, they
wUl feel as we do, that our Albemarle
High School has moved in and taken over
a small section of their hearts.
• Let’s All Learn It
“Once again here as schoolmates as
Now, can you go on from there and
sing the whole song? Without humming
several measures now and then because
you “just can’t think of the words”?
Perhaps you can’t get the words
straightened out because you have never
seen them written down and so couldn’t
memorize the whole song.
Why not take five or ten minutes off
and sit down with this paper in which
the words are written and concentrate a
little, and learn your school song com
pletely, so that next time it is sung you
can join in and do your part?
The song is constantly being sung at
football games, in chapel and many other
pJaces. So, students, let’s really get be
hind it and keep building up our school
• What Kind of a Star
Are you passing on gridiron-ology? In
other words, are you coming out to see
the football games?
We are expecting every loyal student
of Albemarle high to come out and see
those Bulldogs cross that goal line.
Anticipating a very successful season,
the Bulldogs, with Coach De Lotto’s train
ing, are ready and raring to go. Come
out and help your team win.
Are you the star drawback of the Al
bemarle footfall squad?
“A haze on the far horizon.
The infinite, tender sky.
The ripe, rich tint of the cornfields.
And the wild geese sailing high—
And all over upland and lowland
The charm of the golden-rod—
Some of us call it Autumn
And others call it God.”

Here and Everywhere:
More things are happenmg-The
breaking out? Yes and no. ear
of us young’uns are gettmg hitched. Guess
vou’ve seen Ramelle Pickier, Carolyn Da
vis Mabel Underwood, Cornelia Doby,
and Louise Thompson sporting diamonds
on the left hand, while Ann Gilliam is
satisfied with the one-day’s wear of her
*^™^see no future for some of the older
girls. Beaupine Miller is wearing WiUie’s
class ring and Maryland Barger seems to
be contented while riding around with
Truette. Billy Ray must be awfully lone
some nowadays without “Lefty”. By the
way, have you seen the ring he gave her.
Lee and Lee seems to be Gilliams
name—Boo Hoo—he’s gone to school now.
(Off side) Some dumb students think they
can catch a Greyhound Bus to Norwood
. . . Doris Camp used to like 1850 Chevys,
but goodness knows she has gone up 15
It seems that Lois Underwood and Tom
my Swanner are on the home plate to
stay. (P. S. Tommy eats and sleeps at
home—otherwise????.) Pat Crowell has
an interest in Purcell’s Drug. Is it the
sodas, “Patty John,” or the jerker? Bet
ty Ruth Rogers may be little, but she’s
large enough for the San Diego boys to
see. “Kat” Whiteley walks down the
street as everybody yells “Here comes
Sam.” What about John M. and the
It Takes Technique:
1. To shout and truck on the stage as
“Deward” did it.
2. To hook one like Juanita Huney-
cutt, but Joe Glenn did (Probably
lessons from Lazonga.)
3. To be as dumb as “Hamp.”
4. To play bridge like Dottie Whitley.
5. To make Margaret Deese keep
6. To play Fats Waller’s recording,
“Your Feets Too Big” as Samuel
A. plays it.
7. To reach the high notes in “Indian
Love Call” the way Margaret Nis-
bet tackles it.
8. To have a personality such as Ted
9. To dodge the Parker’s car when
“Dot” is driving.
1. Why Hazel lost interest in Char
2. If Rebecca and Robert
3. If Bob Redwine will ever grow up.
4. If Gerald could do without Wades-
boro and that look of dreariness
on his face.
5. If Lafayette will ever amount to
7. If Craig Lisk’s watch worn by
“Totsy” W. keeps good time or if
it gives her the run around.
Once again here as
We feign would lift our heart, m »ong,
To our High School, our dear Alma Mater,
Let gladness her moments prolong.
T^re are joys that will long be remem-
bered , .
And friendships, too, q".
So here’s a song for our old High SchooU
Our dear old High School, our dear old
Here’s to our classes,
Here’s to our lassies,
Here’s to the lads they adore.
Here’s to the Seniors so mighty.
Juniors so flighty,
Freshy and Sophomore
Let mirth and gladness
Banish all sadness
And as the days go by
You’ll find us ready and steady
Boosting for our old Hi!
Soon for us will the school days be ended.
And dreams of youth that fade so fa.-t,
But we know that our hearts ’oft will
In memory of scenes that are past
There are joys that will long be remem
And friendships, too, that ne’er can die
So here’s a cheer for our old High School
For our old High SchooJ, our dear old Hi:

Monday mornings—oh—That’s anoth

about. Even the good students such as
Maxine are minus Jessons on that day—
The usual greeting from Ben, “Hi Grand
ma,” as I plod along the sidewalk to the
front of the building to join the “cluster”.
The bell, and then the long process of
stumbling through the freshman hall in
order to get to class just in the knick of
time. A little accident deprived me of
my usual speed. Expected to run into
the principal on the corner, but oh! wait"
There is a holdup—no, not with a gun,

heels (Mexican sandals). If everybody

loves?) Journalism finds each one know
