December, 1951 fleie and *Jheie ONE DAY LEWIS KLUTTZ and Betty Brunson were discussing the faults of men when Lewis came up with this remark: “Well, the kind of man I can’t stand is one who’ll buy you a Coca-Cola and then take you out and try to squeeze it out of you.” GINGER HELMS: “Sylvia, don’t you think I need to shave my legs?” Sylvia Morrow: “No, I think they need mowing.” AFTER CALLING THE roll the other day Mrs. Fry asked if any one had seen Leslie Swanner. Bruce Lowder replied: “He might still be down in the gym because nobody would take him home yesterday.” MARGARET GRIFFIN: “Coach, is copying from one’s fellow stu dent wrong?” Coach Webb: “Not if the other person’s answer is right.” BRUCE LOWDER: “Did you have your television set on last night?” Sylvia: “Yes.” Bruce: “How did it fit?” ONE DAY IN Mixed Chorus af ter announcements had been made, Johnny Youngblood asked: “Mr. Fry, are you short?” “No,” answered Mr. Fry. “Why?” “Well, the announcement was that there would be a short teachers’ meeting,” was John ny’s bright reply. COACH WEBB EXPLAINING to a class that the government can not enforce all the laws said, “There is probably a law that says one can’t expectorate on the street.” Seeing the puzzled looks he said, “Aw, spit on the street.” MR.

Morris Friday evening, December 7, in the high school auditorium. A large audi ence was present for the comical play. The plot of the play centered around a group of people who came to a sanitorium started by Miss Rebecca Bolt, whose hobby is psychoanalysis. Lutie Spinks, the man-hating maid, has a nervous habit of winking that gets her into trouble with flirtatious men patients. Gertie Glossop has a contagion- phobia and all but asphyxiates everybody else with her various spraying machines. Caldwalleder Clippy has a cat-phobia and is frightened by the pet cat of little Wilbur, a problem child. Prunella Figg suffers from claustrophobia, Martha Grubb, the cook, fairly wallows in melancholy, and Plunkett, the family lawyer, de velops a persecution complex, while Henry, the darky porter, harbors a natural fear of lunatics and all their works. Twink Starr, Benita Bolt’s young marl, whose suit is ta booed by her aunt Rebecca, joins the group of nuts in disguise hop ing to win the heart of Miss Re becca Bolt. The arrival of Dr. Hippocrates News Brieis The seniors in the diversified occupations class have recently received their pins. * H: Bud Griffith is the Student Lion for this month and William Litaker is Student Rotarian. * ♦ ♦ Christmas holidays begin De cember 14 and end December 31. 4: :)! 4c The A.H.S. Mixed Chorus sang at the First Presbyterian church in Albemarle Sunday, Decem ber 2. Joy adds to the hilarious situa tion. He is a make-believe psy chiatrist, who tries to cure the patients. As Miss Rebecca . Bolt begins to look for her deceased mother’s money, the complications multi ply. Twink Starr finally becomes the center-of attraction after the money has been discovered.

Bird's Christmas Carol Presented A one-act Christmas play, “The Bird’s Christmas Carol”, based on the classic written by Kate Douglas Wiggins, was pre sented Tuesday night in the high school auditorium.

Out of a group of approximate ly twenty children the class se lected Harriet Jane Almond, brought by Leslie Swanner, and Freddie Harper, brought by Patsy Williford. Harriet Jane is the niece of Leslie, and Freddie is the nephew of Patsy. Students Smile, But Not For Fun: Picture Taking Termed Big Success “Oh no! Just look at my straight hair!” “Oh goodness! I just plumb forgot to wear a dark sweater and pearls!” These were just a few of the lamentations heard when the day finally arrived for taking annual pictures. Annual pictures were made November 26 by the Delmar studios of Charlotte. Mr. White, a man of wit and humor, took approximately 600 pictures dur ing the day. As of yet it is not known when these pict- tures will be made available to students, although they may buy as many pictures as they wish at a later date. It seems that the main ob jections to the picture takings were concerned with the make up which was applied before the pictures were taken. As the pictures were not to be re touched, Miss Kyzer, Nancy Morrow, and Nancy Jo Haynes stood ready to wield a wicked finger to all those who knew not to beware. According to Mr. Lentz, he didn’t need any of that “stuff” on him as he was handsome enough. Don Perry undoubted ly put a lot of faith in the make-up as he said, “Oh boy! They a-gonna take my freckles off.” ■ Mr. White had just seated Charlie Walter under the glar ing lights when Charlie let out a pitiful sob and said, “I didn’t do it. I swear I didn’t.” What’s wrong, Charlie? Have you a guilt complex about breaking cameras? Someone once said that girls primp more than boys, but it seems that the A.H.S. boys spent an equal amount of time at the mirror before having their pictures taken. This little remark was overheard while the boy mentioned was stand ing before the morror. Sylvia Morrow to Bruce Lowder, “Oh, you beautiful creature!” William Litaker said the make-up was O. K. but he sure hoped they didn’t get it on his chewing gum. Joe Clayton was a bit skeptical of the make-up and said they would need three bottles in order to prepare him. Many comments were heard after the pictures were taken. Mrs. Westerlund said, “It was absolutely painless, but hu miliating!” Mrs. Jeffords seemed to think they were going to use his picture to scare someone, and Mr. Hatley wanted the lights turned off so he would make a better picture. All in all, the picture taking was a big success and will not be forgotten soon.
