I THE LEXINGTON HIGHS
iji In a Kame that will go down in his-
rg tory as an unusually haid fought
^ battle, L. H. S. again lost to Salisbury
in the initial game of the champion-
^ ship series.
The game was a one sided affair un-
til the last two minuets of play, when
S ^^t^^^bins fumbled a punt, a long run
It twenty yards, a completed for-
I ward pass for a similar gain and two
1 bne bucks gave Salisbury her touch-
i: down and the winning score for the
^ 11 game, other than this, Salisoury did
absolutely nothing, but jus: playing
■; for the breaks which never came. The
I fray may be summed up by L. H. S’s.
i first downs to Salisbury’s two.
^ Ee.xlngton had several fine chances
3,; to score, but just lacked ihe final
bbnch to take it across.
f or the locals Anderson f layed by
best defensive game and big
Oene Young the best offensive. Time
and again Captain Molly would break
through and throw the oPl'a'^mg backs
for a loss and it was .also a common
thing for Gene to rip off five to flf-
fosn yards at a cllj). Varner Sink al-
de.serves some credit ,as well .as
l>oc Vestal. Sam Kanes played his
o®t giime and deserves mention.

The students of Lexington High
School are very much indebted to Dr.
Owens for his wonderful reading of
Enoch Arden, given Wednesday af
ternoon. Those who had heard him
give the reading before were just as
anxious to hear him as those who
had not had this opportunity
Before .starting the re.ading Dr.
Owens gave the setting, the chief
characters and told to whom it was
dedicated. During the reading he ex
plained the most difficult line.?, so that
all might understand and get the full
me.aning of the poem.
Enoch Arden is a wondeilul poem,
one of the most beautiful ever writ
ten. Dr. Owens pictured the charac
ters true to life and aroused the sym
pathy of every student. Credit in
English w'as given and it w.as worth
more than many English lessons.
Everyone appreciated the reading
very much and the students hope Dr.
Owens will give us .another one soon.
BOY-S FORM LITER.UIY SOCIETY
The boys who were intere.sted in or
ganizing a Literary Society in L. H. S.
met on October 30th in the auditodium
Twenty-one boys applied for member
ship and out of these Frank McCul
loch was elected president; Dwight
Johnson vice-president; .and Dick Wal-
ser, secretary. After the president

Nora—“Mother, why do they keep
lions .at the Telephone office’.’"
Mrs. Raper—“Why Nona, what

Nona—’ W'ell, I heard Daddy slam
down the receiver and say, "The lion

OUR AIM FOR 1924-25.
All successful marksmen aim at
something. The fellow who puts his
gun to his shoulder, points somewhere
in the direction of the rtock, shuts
both eyes tight and pulls ihe trigger,
seldom gets the game.
For several years we h.avj had the
desire and ambition for Lexington
High School to qualify for member
ship in the Southern A.ssoclation of
Colleges and Secondary Schools, an
ambition realized by comparatively
few High Schools. Our School Board
shared this ambition with u^, but rea
lized that we could never re.ach the
goal of our ambition so long as our
High School work w.as done under the
handicap of lack of building, labora
tories, and other equipment.
Lest year we had the building and
most of the required equipment but
could not qualify because of educa
tional qualification of soniq of our
teachers, as well as the teaching load
carried by some of them. This year
it appears that these conditions have
been met, for we believe tb it the re
quired number of teachers >f standard
qualifications has lieen serured, .and
the work has been so distri’iuted that
all are carrying the maximum teach
ing load, but none are exceeding it.
-Among other conditions t.' be met
is the High School Library, in which
we exceed the requirements in the
total number of volumns. However,
we find our I.ibrary short of the re
quired number of volumn.> in bio
graphy and hl.story. The.se will lie
added at an early date.
•U1 the . requirements mentioned
have been provided and pi'd for by
the property holders of the High
school District, but the c.ily other
condition remaining can no', be i>ur-
chased at any price—that is the char
acter and purpose of the uoys and
girls who make up the ILgh School
