What Would You Do
There are many organizations and individual merchants in
Albemarle who have patronized and supported our school in past
years and have received very few thanks and little recognition.
Every year the Lions and Rotarians give a banquet for our
football team that is greatly enjoyed by every member. These
two civic organizations, the Rotarians and Lions, do other helpful
things. Each month these clubs sponsor a senior boy to act as
an honorary member of their club.
The Full Moon and the Crossroads would not be able to
function if it were not for their faithful advertisers. Through the
years these merchants have backed the school publications to
the fullest extent.
These same merchants always are willing to give generously
of their stock when our students solicit prizes for the annual
The members of the football team usually are presented
with some kind of remembrance of football season by the Jaycees.
Last year they received small trophies and this year, gold foot
The Civitan club gives a “Good Citizen” award of a $100
bond each year to an outstanding senior.
The students and faculty of A. H. S. would like to say “thank
you” to these friends and to the many others that are not men
About Out Parking Problem
This year, it appears, more students are driving automobiles
to and from school. More automobiles here at .school plus the
automobiles of residents near school bring a need of more park
Everyone* would like to have a nice parking lot, but where
could one be built? There are no vacant lots near the school
that could easily be made into a parking lot, so the parking
problem must be solved another way.
As everyone knows, the streets are our only places to park.
While parked on these streets every car owner takes the chance
of getting a fender smashed in or a bumper knocked off by one
of the many amateur hot-rodders that go sailing, up and down the
streets of Albemarle. However, that is the chance that everyone
must take because there is no other place to park.
We believe that this steadily increasing problem can be solved
only by co-operation. Practically all of the cars are parked too
far apart. Many times two cars are parked in a space that is
normally big enough for three. Sometimes even on the curb.
If each student would co-operate by closing in on a little
of that space left between his car and the one in front of him
and by trying to stay a reasonable distance from the curb without
parking in the middle of the street, it is our opinion that the
parking problem would be solved in no time!
How do you feel about it?
What Price Violets?
With Violet cuddled in his arms
He tried to drive—poor silly!
Where once he held a Violet,
Now he holdsV lily!
This could be the story of your life if you make a practice
of cuddling Violet in your arms. So often people, young as well
as old, forget that there are other people on the road and begin
to play games. Such things as this cause the death of many
people. A good thing to remember about driving a car is to keep
as far away from danger as posible. Don’t try to see how close
you can come to it and get by with it. Act like a grown-up while
Another good rule to follow while operating an automobile
is to keep yourself and your car in good condition. A person who
drinks should not be on the highway, because he is endangering
the lives of others.
Being courteous and cooperating with other drivers and of
ficers will help insure safety on the highways.
It's In the Book
By ANN WALTER
Have you ever heard this?
“They don’t have anything new
in the library.”
“I’ve read all they’ve got up
“I wish they would get some
Of course you have heard it.
But from now on you’ll know
there’s no use for it.
There are one hundred and
fifty-six new books in the library
this month. They cover every
subject you ever heard of: fic
tion, travel, teen-talk, biography,
government, science, hobbies, his
tory, health, geography, and any
other hundred subjects you might
want to discuss.
Certainly^ out of this great
variety there are some books
which will interest everybody,
from the freshman boy who wants
something exciting to the senior
who must have a certain thing
Below are listed eight books on
eight different subjects picked at
random from the new book list.
Consider this a good cross-sec
