I Let’s all go over to the T-ville game Vol. XXIV The Lexhipep And see the Yellow Jackets sting them lame LEXINGTON, N. C., NOVEMBER 8, 1946 No. 2 “Give Us Two Minutes More!’’ (Before you slam that door) —Joe Ayers “Hurry, or you’ll be late for your next crass!’’ Thats the general thought Lexington nigh School stu dents have when changing classes. It may be that you're leaving Geometry class and going all the way down to General Business class, which is quite a distance to cover in three minutes especially since there is such a large increase in the enrollment of oui school this year, and also since the little eighth graders don’t know their left from their right. It seems a; though the eighth graders should know ■ by now that you should keep to your | right in the halls. I suggest thai' their teachers set aside a few minutes to teach them this rule before some of us Seniors are hurt. Another sug gestion worth mentioning is for these young students to stop the puppy play in the halls and on the stairs during the changing of classes. i feel that this would relieve the situation to a great extent. But, we must not stop there. We could still use two more minutes between periods to a good advantage. Why, i hear that the girls don’t even have time to powder their noses between periods. 'What wai that, Mr. Payne? You say it’s up to the students? Okay, what do you say, students? What was that? Who was that “lame brain” that said a majority was for five minutes be tween classes? You idiot! That vote was unanimous. I Eanes, Johnson, and Benny go off tackle for L.H.S. gam in Homecoming victory. CALENDAR OF EVENTS Nov... 8 — Football,.. Thomasville (there).

Holds Annual Homecoming’ Parade, October 18 One of the most stupendous events of the year was held Friday, October 18, when the annual Homecoming Pa rade of Lexington High School was staged. Almost all the homerooms entered a float, and many cute and clever ideas were carried out In them. All plans for this great event were carried out as scheduled so that the parade began promptly at 4:30 p.m Making a spectacular appearance was the high school band which was led by Jake Cross, drum major. Local merchants in town paid for the ma terials which were needed for the various floats and in return theii names were put on the floats as sponsors. After viewing the floats and after much deliberation, the judges chose Miss Frances Walser’s room, 301, as the winner. Using the theme, “We’ll Lick ’Em Tonite,” won Miss Walser’s room the $15 prize given by the Ath letic Association. On the truck was a giant lollypop tree surrounded by girls licking lollypops. The second place prize of $10, given by the Athletic Association went tc Mr. Pete Lea’s D. O. Class. Tied up in a huge cellophane package was Mies Myrtle Smith, who was the main fea ture of the float. The theme, “Prize For the Winner,” certainly was suit able for one of the prettiest floats in the parade. ■'Well Dry Up Barium Springs To nite” brought the Lexhipep $5 which was given by the Student Council Featuring a most realistic desert scene, (Continued on page 3) 3,000 See Victorious Yellow Jackets Take Barium 25 to 0 in Homcoming Game Lexington’s homecoming proved a great success with its final parade in the afternoon and its victory over Barium Springs that night. The game was played at Holt-Moffitt Field Oc tober 18, before an excellent crowd of 3,000 spectators. Besides the re sounding victory over Barium, every one enjoyed Lexington’s growing band, which played at the half, and the parade of the fourteen sponsors with their queen, Enid Ayers, and the three winning floats which were: Walser’s Homeroom, first prize- Mr Lea’s Homeroom, second prize-’ and Lexhipep, tWrd prize. The cheerlead ers and students did some fine yelling, which undoubtedly inspired the team on to its 25 to 0 victory over Barium. In the opening minutes of the game Lexington hit pay dirt when Gibson galloped 31 yards for a touchdown Lexington’s offense clicked all night with another touchdown being scored early in the second quarter and with Gibson going to the one-yard line as the half ended.
