Dunbar Glee Club
A musical program, which the stu
dent body always enjoys, was pre
sented by the Dunbar Glee Club on
December 10. The devotional was
taken from Luke 2:1-20. Many choice
and difficult selections were presented
by the glee club, girls’ chorus, girls’
trio and several soloists, under the
direction of Miss Clara M. Conway.
Several of the selections were:
“Spirit of God,’’ “I Know That My
Redeemer Liveth,” “Fairest Lord Je
sus,’’ “My Memory of You,’’ and in
conclusion, “Silent Night,’’ which ver
sion accentuated the close harmony
for which Dunbar Glee Club is famous.
And last but not least of the tele
phone numbers, if you want the best
school in N. C. ring 426!
We hope that you will have some
luck if you call any of these numbers!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New
On December 1, Safety Engineer
Tewksbury accompanied by George
Mooney, Philip Head, and Patrolman
Wagner presented a safety driving pro
gram to the students of Lexington
High School. Mr. Tewksbury made
an excellent speech on the ways of
preventing accidents, after which the
picture was shown, “Wanton Murder.”
The next part of the program in
cluded a demonstration on the stop
ping distance of cars at different
speeds. Betty Ann Wall, M. T. Brown,
Coach Gaddy, and Patrolman Wagner
took part in the demonstration. Pa
trolman Wagner made the quickest
stopping distance which was eighty-
two feet at forty miles per hour. Next
in order came Coach Gaddy, M. T.
Brown, and last Betty Ann Wall. The
students and faculty members of L.
H. S. were greatly impressed by the
demonstration of the need for safety
on the highways of North Carolina.
A lad must remove a berry from
the mistletoe each time he kisses a
maid beneath it.
In the language of flowers, mistle
toe means (give me a kiss).
A maiden who receives no kisses
under the mistletoe will not marry
the next year.
If a maiden removes a berry and
a leaf from the mistletoe (underneath
which she was kissed) behind locked
doors, swallows the berry, pricks the
name of her secret love on the leaf
and wear it next to her heart, he
will love her.

ican family that had been disillu
sioned about celebratitng Christmas

in the world. The family, through a
dream that took them to the manger
in Bethlehem, was made to realize
the true reason for observing Christ
mas. The Glee Club sang several
numbers consisting of old and famil
iar Christmas carols, and the program
