The Seniors are practicinEr every
day, either afternoon or night, on the
“Hoodoo”. If it keeps up like it is
going now and everybody gets right
down to work to learn and i,ct their
parts as they should, it is bound to
a success. By giving the “Hoodoo”
we have found that we have many
queer characters in the Senior cla.ss
such as bossy old ladie.s, maids, bur
glars, old black mammies, young men
and young ladle.s, and even children
eight and nine years old. Don’t fail
to see “The Hoodoo” at the Lexing
ton Theatre Wednesday night. May
13th. \Ve know you will enjoy it.
Most of the Senior Clas.s will agree
with me when I say that one teacher
in Lexington High School has recent
ly been .showing partiality—not to in
dividuals, but to clasae.s. The reas
ons this teacher gives for said parti
ality are indeed ridiculous, and cer
tainly appeal to ones sense ot humor.
It is unusual for a person to admit
partiality on their own p.avt, but this
ones does, and tries to defend herself
or himself in it. The teacher to
whom thi sis written will understand
I’m sure, but if the cap fits any other
they are welcome to share it: how-
over, I hope this is not the case. Most
of us believe in fairness and honesty,
and since teachers are Continually
giving Us lectures on these subjects,
I for one, think it would be well for
them to .set an e.xample, .as most of

How many of us really think? The
joke about being good to an idea, as
H is in a strange place, is becoming
■stale, but it is true, with most of us
that ideas are rather foreign quali
ties. Of course everyone Uiinks, but
this usually means that a tram of un
connected thoughts pass through the
mind, taking the person no further
than he was when he started, and
this is often done, when that person
IS pretending to study or re id. Few
people actually enjoy thinking, and
lew are able to weigh problems in
their minds, coming finally *o the de
It is a good plan to think carefully
before speaking, since:

It has been suggested by some of
the boys that the girls in L. H. S.
adopt the resolution that .1 is become
popular in high .school in this state
of abolishing the use of c.osmetics!
W’e have not heard any results of this
Plan, but we have an idea that the
boys in these schools are growing
rather tired of pale, shiny-nosed girls
and are yearning for the sight of pretty
8iris in school. Of coar.se some
Kiris are endowed by nature with beau
tiful chmplexions, and can continue
to be pretty without the use of cos
metics, but the.se are indeed few. In
some schools where this has been
attempted, the reason for it was that
most of the girls failed on t.heir exam-
inations. We think this is a rather
unique way to insure passing on exams,
and since girls in this school can and
(io pass their work and still carry their
faithful vanities, we say lot them
make full use of the powder rag,
rouge puff and ll])stlck.
