Believe it or not but room 205
has a Professor Quizz in the per
son of Mimi Wagger. One Friday
morning recently Mimi gave a Pro
fessor Quizz program. There were
four contestant, David Bovildin,
Thomas Henderson, Olive Keener,
and Miriam Pleasants.
The questions asked were based
on Latin, English, and civics. Each
contestant had four questions and
out of a possible score of four
hundred came David Bouldin with
a score of three hundred. His
prize was fifteen cents and into
second place with a score of three
hundred came Thomas Plenderson
whose reward was ten cents. All the
contestants made good scores.
When Mimi announced the prizes
and presented the change, oh’s and
ah’s were heard and several re
marked with one accord: “Why
didn’t cha let me in on it?”
Room 204 is having a contest be
tween the boys and girls for at
tendance. So far the girls have had
only two absences against the boys’
three. Look out, boys, you may have
to throw us a party.
Room 203 extends a hearty wel
come to Herbert Glenn, who comes
to us from the Charlotte schools.
ENMEO Sro IN KO
Mexico and all its wonders were
visited last summer by Byron
Grandjean, who has just recently
returned. When vacation was al
most over and Byron was to leave
tor High Point, his brother fell
ill with scarlet fever, so the jour
ney was postponed.
While Byron was in Mexico he
saw a huge pyramid which was
built by the Aztec Indians who
lived in Mexico long before white
men ever set foot upon it. This
pyramid, "El Pyrmide del Sol,” in
Spanish, when translated means
“The Pyramid of the Sun,” has
been the subject of many scien
tists who are trying to find records
of the Aztecs. A picture of this
pyramid is on one of the Mexican
“Floating Gardens” and its beau
tiful variety of flowers intermingled
with canals was paid a visit by
Byron. The gardens float but a
few inches each year. On some of
the canals small huts are built. The
natives who own these huts gather
and use for food a plant that is
like cabbage or mustard called
cress. Last but not least comes the
Nuns’ secret convent. The Nuns’
religion Was considered unlawful
so they had to build this convent.
The secret of the convent was
guarded well and not until recently
was it discovered. There were so
many trap doors, secret rooms, and
dark passages that it seemed that
it would scare the Nuns that lived
there when it was still unknown.
After Byron has told us of the
many things he saw and did, we
also would like to visit our “south
ern neighbors.” We thank Byron
for relating his adventures and
heartily welcome him back to
Junior High. —Edward Knight.

going to show the boys a thing or
two about stunts.
I'uesday afternoon we visited the
police station to get information
regarding a contract in civics. We
asked Mr. W. B. Ridge, the desk
sergeant, some questions. While he
typed them for us we went down
stairs to the Bureau of Investiga
tion, where we got information
from Mr. McMahon regarding
criminals and their records. While
we were there Mr. McMahon took
our finger prints and pictures. This
was very interesting. He showed
us some molds of fingers. One of
these was a copy of a dead woman
who had never been identified.
Under the hand lens you could see
the pores and the lines in her
finger, and you could see where
her nails had been bitten. Then
he showed us a copy of one of
Mr. Williams, who is a detective.
Next we visited the science
laboratory, where they bring out
finger and foot prints with chem
icals. An example of a finger print
that they had brought out was on
a bottle of blueing. We saw this
through the microscope. It was
very clear. We enjoyed our trip to
the police station very much.
