Editorial. SPIRIT OF HEI^DERSCN IliSTITUTE
The ocniriun.ity expects tnc conduct cf
stiiC.ents t.'.j be a litTll.e betuei" tnan that
cf the otl.e.rsc OCten pe;.p.le Sv;e us
doitig so.ucthing vn-cng and asK^v "Is that
what c'.n eaucc-tio'". O'^es for us?" They
Bind that tiie itiajority of the educated
havt: L( crcned oij.ly v.'hat ■ s in a bo«k and
cthcrivj.se tnc^rr acts do not reflect their
tr:.ini.rvg. It is up to us to tear down
th.'-t \!or'^ with which many of us are brand-
Let us take our own school for instance.
There should be a pride in us that only
th-' spirit of Hcrdericn Institute should
gi.'s/ Tui pi jbably say^ "I have no money
to rive or I'm net able to erect more
bui.Iaings to house tae overflov/ of students
but as you ki'.owj the little things we do
vd.il mean more to us and our schpol in
later ye.ars, "Little things" really
become assets to us as well as oui' school.
Here are a few suggestions;
In assembly when there is a progr'ua or-
play, we don't kndw when to laugh or
when to cry, Mr. Robinson, our priiicipal,
says we are inprcviiig, but v/o still nave
a long way to go. The spiritual side of
our as.semoly is as iii^iortant as anything
else,. Reverence toward Gos is the found
ation of all success.
Our conduct on the streets, in busses, and
theat-ers tell the other oerson what kind
cf feu'ow we are. Are we loud and
boi.'.terous and inconsiderate cf others?
Thai's not school spirit; then we aren't
goou representauives of Henderson Institute
Our patriotism to our school should bo as
to our country. The willingness to give
it anything we have, to help conquer the
forces of evil inside cf it, must be ours.
School morale is just as much needed as the Every student is a personal represen-
morale of our fighting men. "Keep building tative of Henderson. Are you a good
participate in extra-curricular
activeti.as, tvo'd'ai.'t get credit on
report cards for ''hie. The credit
we will i’eceive not only helpa us, but
will assist the S(-hoo.I in upholding
the good standing it is lariOv:n to
have, I have noticed that the Glee
Club is not want it used to be, .not
because of a nv-w teacher, but
because of very little cooperation
from the student body, Y'e must cooper
ate in everything we join to the utmost
in order to make a hundred percent
In conclusion, hold up and preserve
the name of Henderson Institute, Vvhen
a stranger asks, "kliat dees Henderson
^institute stand for"? Truthfully tell
him it stands for those good things
of life which few other institutions
could give—those qualities which
prepare uho girl or bey for life.
Many students here think seriously
and they are deeply hurt when any
thing happejiS to ..lar the reputation
of our school.
Every school has some sort of tradition.
Through the years, Henderson Institute
has had a prestige that has placed it
among the best schools of worth Carolina
Henderson Institute has.always been
respected by citizens of Henderson as a
place for wholesome study.
It is up to us as students to protect
the name of Henderson Institute whereve'"
we are—it is.lup to each student to
cooperate with cur principal and the
teachers in nel'.ping Henderson Insti’^ut- '
to hold fast to the standards'upon
which the school was founded.
Books aren't everything, but they mean a
lot; make better grades erich semester,
Collf'ges are anxious to enroll students
of high scholarship.
Public opinion is best ejqjressed in the
newspapers. Our opinion means more when
expressed in the school paper than expressed
to a few friends. LET US SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL
PAPER, It is the student's voice.
