Sept. 15—Today I came up to the
Hi Skool and went upstairs. There
was a big boy standing by a door
and I asked him what I must do. I
think he must have been a teecher.
Everybody called him Ham. He told
ote to go down stairs and stand in the
hall and holler as loud as I could for
a man named Mr. Allen. I guess he
hiust be the janitor. Ennyhow’, I did
this and somebody came out and told
hie to hush and go upstairs again.
Which I did. I saw another boy and
he said that if I wanted a good desk
f must give him 50c. Which I did
hut he didn’t seem to get me a very
Bood one. I didn’t know what he had
to do with the desks but they called
him wood, so maybe that’s why.
Sept.16—This is a very expensive
skool. A girl told me today that I
hiust pay her a dime to get a locker
to put my hat in. Today I got a hole
tot of books.
Sept. 22—A boy told me that I must
oarrv all his books for him. He said
|t was a rool of the skool. I think it
is a verv funny rool and the books
"’ere awful heavy.

ORGANIZATION OF A
Hl-Y CLUB IN L H. S.
The Open Forum is a new feature
of the LEXHIPEP. In the next is
sue and throughout the year, the edi
tors tvill reserve a column for the
students and townspeople to voice any
sentiment or constructive criticism
that they might wish, but this pdivi-
lege must be taken seriously.
The Open Forum column will be
reserved and it is hoped that it will
be put to use. This column is the
appropriate way for the students to
give publicity to their thoughts, and
if there is any thinking being done
about the high school, surely some of
it deserves a place in the high.school
paper. The purpose of the Open Fo
rum space is to allow any sentiments,
w'hether they be critical or otherwise,
to be openly expressed.-
If there are boys or girls about the
high school who wish to comment
upon something that is going on, or
should go on, THE LEXHIPEP will
be glad to publish their views, even
if such an article smacks with con
structive criticism, the paper Itself for
it is from outside sources that the de-
Lest Wednesday night, Mr. J. P.
Fesperman, representative of the state
Y. M. C. A., Extension Department,

"No old car, new top.”
One of the greatest events of the
summer season took place when Mr.
T. D. Stokes was married to Miss
Helen Earnhardt. The wedding
took place at 8:00 P. M. August 6,
1924, at the home of the bride on
South Main Street. The house was
attractively decorated in green and
white. The bride was dressed in a
blue coatsuit with accessories to
match. Rev. W. L. Hutchins officiat
Immediately after the ceremony,
Mr. and Mrs. Stokes left for a visit
to a number of places of interest.
The many guests were then served
with a salad course and ice cream.
Mr. Stokes has long been a member
of the facult.v of Lexington High
School, and Mrs. Stokes is the attrac
tive daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John
Earnhardt. Their many friends wish
them much happiness.
School spirit, how often have you
heard those words, you have heard
of some, boy having lots of school
spirit and you wonder what it is.
School sprit is your attitude to
ward work and play in school. If ;i
person hates school and everything
connected with it, he will not have
much school spirit. On the other
hand, one who noesn’t just hate school
none of us are too fond of it. tries
to get everything out of it, and is wil
ling to put something in it will be
just the opposite.
You must be loyal to the school,
teachers and pupils. Tell the nic3
things about them instead of the bad.
School spirit in the class-room is just
as fine as on the foot-ball field.
If you go to the foot-ball games
and yell, jjractlce basket-ball, sub
scribe for THE LEXHIPEP, and get
up your lessons, feeling that Lexing
ton High School is the very best
school you know, her teachers are the
best, and the students the finest, you
have the kind of school spirit every
member of the High School should
have. Good school spirit is one of
the main essentials in high school life
and wthout it, you will never realize
the pleasure of a High School Edu
