Too, the members of this class must keep their ears open at all times for news or the funny things that go in “Here and There” and ‘By Their Words.” There are three staffs on the Full Moon—Feature, News, and Sports — with editors for each staff. In case no one of you has ever known who the mem bers and editors of the class are, the list appears on the first col umn of the second page. A feature is an article written mostly for entertainment. Some features appear in every issue, while some are seasonal. “Camp us Chatter” is a good example of a feature. . , ^ , After the articles have been assigned, a deadline is set. The Press Printing Co., which prints the paper, is notified by the busi ness manager that the dummy will be sent in by that time. The dummy is all the articles, tvped with a headline printed at the top. Then on eight pieces of paper the eight pages of the paper are marked off. You propably think the class is through now because the pa per has gone to press. Wron^! One day a copy of the paper is sent to school for the class to proofread. After this is correct ed and sent back we go on with verbs and participles until one morning the class arrives to find big piles of Full Moon on all the desks. These sheets are not folded, so the class goes to work. They get the papers folded, then count out the number for each homeroom. Soon the papers are delivered and the class sits down to en joy their handiwork . . . that is, all but one person, who has one of the biggest jobs on the paper. He is circulation manager — Larry Holt. He takes care of the subscription. He folds the pa pers into envelopes, types the addresses to some 75 papers and sees that they are mailed. This is one of the most tedious jobs on the whole paper. Well, the paper is written, printed, folded, and delivered, and boy, is everyone bushed! You probably are, too, if you’ve read to the end of this article. Need For Senior High Is Declared By School Board A statement' has been released by the Stanly County Board of Commissioners and the Albe marle School Board that Albe marle High School needs to di vide into two separate schools, a senior and a junior division. R. L. Brown, chairman of the School Board, said that a new senior high school should be built consisting of the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades. The present high school would contain the seventh, eighth, and ninth junior grades of the en tire system. This would relieve the pressure of such crowded conditions in the grammar schools and in the high schools. Albemarle schools do not own any land at the present time, and so this will entail buying a lot for the Senior High School. It has been tried and proven that this is the best possible so lution for this problem, and it is also in keeping with the ap proved school standards. Contestants Try For Debate Team “Resolved: That the Atlantic Pact nations should form a fed eral union.” These solemn words will ring out over the auditorium on February 27 as the prelimi nary try-outs for the negative and affirmative debating teams are held. Four persons will be chosen to represent AHS in both this and other schools where the debates are to be held. In the running are Jimmie Millican, Frances Litaker, Pat Allan, Jimmie Grif fin, Claud Grigg, Ann Ivey, Joyce Simpson, and Georgia Beaver. After the two teams are chos en, they enter into the “triangu lar debates.” That is, the AHS affirmative team will compete against Lexington’s negative team here, while the negative team goes to Charlotte to com pete against Harding’s affirma tive team. These will take place on March 27. By Their Words “A good person didn’t go wrong; another bad person has been found out.”—Rev. Jordan. « « ♦ “Doris Day is the top male star,”—Robert Shaver. ♦ « « “My students didn’t know enough this time to be funny and make boners on exams.”— Mrs. Westerlund. ♦ ♦ ♦ “Some of these people that drive a car should have a sign on the back that says: ‘Watch out! I don’t know where I’m going, and nobody else does’.” —Mr. R. C. Hatley. # * * “Some people have to act like fools to make people look at them.”—Chief Furr. ♦ » ♦ “They’ll have to build a road across that ocean before I cross it,”—Mrs. Deese. * ♦ * “With brains like mine you have to take study hall and cho rus.”—Shirley Deese. ♦ « « “Oh, I made a D! Now I won’t be eligible for Honor So ciety.”—Gene Snuggs. * * * “The University of Ignorance is a funny institution; you never graduate; you never get a di ploma; but you pay tuition all your life.”—Mr. R. C. Hatley, ♦ * ♦ “Do you want this side on that side, and that side on this side?”—Otty Lynn. * * * “A cigarette is a bunch of to bacco wrapped up in some paper; a fool at one end and a fire at the other.” — Mr. R. C. Hatley.
