HIGH LIGHTS OF 1925
PROVES “A KNOCK-OUT”
One of the best and most success
ful home talent productions ever pre
sented In Lexington was the one given
by the Senior Dramatic Club :n March
6. The cast was composed entirely
of members of the Senior Class. This
play was produced under the direc
tion of Misses Lula Walker ai,d Steph
anie Bragaw and Mr. Dick Walser.
Just before the entertainment Her
bert Waters rendered several selec
tions on the Xylophone. The first
thing on the program was the black
face act, “Hard Hearted Hannah,’
Pearl Wright proving the ‘pep’ of this
feature. The old-fashioned girls
made a ‘hit’ with their pret'y dresses
and smiling faces.
Dwight Johnson showed himself
to be a magician of most excellent
ability presenting many original
Frances Thompson made .a beauti
ful portrait and displayed just hovs
perfect an actre.ss a Senio.- can be.
Dick Walser and Cloyd Philpott were
the ‘sheiks’ of the evening Every
‘Dream Giri’ was new and different
and their act was very interesting.
Madge McCarn and Dick Wai.ser were
profusely applauded after both of
their numbers, “All Alone”, and
“Romeo and Juliet’’.
The most unique featu'-e of the
pro.gram was “The cross word puzzle".
Their costumes were very attractive
and they were “re.al chorus girls”.
To “cap the climax”, eveiy mem
ber of the Senior Class and t ie east
black faces, aid-fashioned girls, ma
gician, cross word puzzle nuts, dream
girls, beaux and Romeo and Juliet—
came on the stage singing, ‘ We love
you tonight ’25!”
Great North Carolinians
On March 12, 1925, at our regular
chapel exercises, we had a very in
teresting talk by Mr. Don Walser.
His subject was, “The Three Great
est North Carolinians”. His idea of
this subject was that one came from
each department of our go-.-c-rnment.
Prom the executive branch, he nam
ed Governor Vance, our governor
during the civil war. From the
legislative branch comes Charles Ay-
cock, to whom every school child is
indebted. From the judicial depart
ment comes Mr. Clark who was in
deed a great North Carolinian. The
talk was enjoyed by all and we hope
that Mr. Walser will visit us again.
DAVIDSON GLEE CLUB
Everyone who attended the David
son Glee Club Concert was well pleas
ed, and liked their program very
much. The whole glee club was
good, but the jazz orchestra made
the hit of the evening. The black *
face acts were good and everyone en
joyed them. The quartets and solo’s
were fine, and the violin solos were
beautiful. The program was well
selected, and did not become monot
onous. The whole glee club was
splendid and those who heard it un
derstand why it is considered one of
the best of the State.
On Friday night, March 27, the
preliminary for the annuai triangular
debate wdll be held. Mt. Airy sends
her negative team here to contend
with our affirmative, whicu is com
posed of Dick Walser and Louise
Thompson, the latter having taken
the place of Ham Hargrave, who was
prevented from taking part by a case
of the mumps. Lexington’s negative
team, composed of Cloyd Philpott
and Stephanie Briagaw, will debate
against North Wilkesboro’s affirma
tive representatives at them home.
Much time has been spent preparing
the debates, and we feel certain that
our teams will be victorious this
year. Two of the debaters, Cloyd
Philpott and Dick Walser, displayed
their excellent ability in this field last
year, and we are sure that with the
help of their colleagues, they will not
only reach Chapel Hill, but will come
home bearing the silver cup.
A NOTE OF appreciation
The members of the Senior Dra
matic Club wish that it were possible
to personally thank every one who

Pep,” to express our appreciation to

“Who are you?”
He replied “I am Woodrow Wilson”
The boy on the inside: “Well, I am
George Washington and I’m shaving,
so you can’t come in”.

For just one kiss from you”.
