Mims' Class Celebrates
Happy birthday to Will Shakes
peare and Miss Sara Mims was
sung and celebrated by the Shakes
peare Class last Friday at second
The party was held under the
trees in front of the Science Build
ing. A large rectangular cake baked
by Martha Leonard and complete
with a fudge Globe Theater, green
cocoanut grass, and the words,
“Happy Birthday Miss Mims,” was
devoured along with cokes by the
hungry students of “the bard.”
Miss Mims, teacher of the
Shakespearians and sharer of the
birthday, was presented by the
class with a copy of “The Oxford
Book of English Verse.” The class
then played Shakespearian Bingo,
a brand new kind of Bingo in
which words pertaining to the
realm of Shakespeare are substi
tuted for numbers and in which
the winner must explain each word
or group of words in his Bingo
line. Frances Stafford won a yel
low “goony” bird.
Next came charades led by
Amanda McConnell and George
Artope and composed of famous
Shakespearian sayings enacted by
the students. The high spot came
when Miss Mims wore a small
piece of folded paper for a crown
and frantically rode an imaginary
horse to portray “My kingdom for
a horse.” The festivities ended
with the ringing of the ball, and
the students all agreed “it should
happen every day—or at least every
The committee for the party, was
composed of Martha Leonard,
chairman; Barbara Jamieson, Jerry
Matherly, and Cynthia Bivens.

Recently accepted at the Raleigh
school, Carole plans to study for
five years. The last year is to be
spent in professional work.
At present Carole is studying
mechanical drawing here at Senior.
This will help her in college with
the study of planning and design
ing buildings and other construc
tions, these being the basic duties
of an architect. Incidentally, Car
ole is the only girl in the mechan
ical drawing classes.
Other subjects which she was
advised to take in high school
were chemistry, physics, art, and
higher math. She is studying all
these this year.
Carole’s father was the cause
of her interest in this profession.

As has been evident over the
last few weeks, hot weather has
again arrived at Senior.
This presents a new problem to
teachers. Their sweltering students
experience a vast change. Boys
