Writes About Trip
To The University
By I.ALA SMITHWICK
On Saturday, September 21, the
Farm Life High School seniors were
the guests of the University of North
Carolina, at the annual high school
We left Farm Life at &30 o'clock,
chaperoned by Mr, Perry and Mrs.
Martin. We went in three cars, driv
en by Thomas Tice, Arthur Revels
and Benny Daniel. By nine o'clock
we had covered the distance between
here and Wake Forest. There we
made our first stop in order to look
over the campus, which is very love
ly. The dense, green trees and shrubs
that fill the empty spaces between
the large and numerous buildings
cast an "eeree spell" on one, even
in the daylight. We thoroughly en
joyed the sight-seeing on the cam
pus, and we had a delightful time
while we were there. Before we left
Wake Forest, we called on Mrs. Ray,
who is a friend of Mrs. Martin. We
had such a nice time while there that
the group agreed that if all the peo
ple living in Wake Forest are as
nice as she is, we would certainly
like to take up permanent residence
Realizing that time was passing
fast, we left Wake Forest about ten
o'clock and headed for Chapel Hill.
The scenery was so beautiful it was
breath-taking. The rolling country,
stretching far into the distance, cov
ered with high trees and dense un
dergrowth, the highway that lay be
fore us, a smooth straight ribbon
stretching over hills, each higher
than the one before it, made us open
our eyes wide in wonder. Nor were
the hills and highway the only
things that caught our eyes. It was
amazing to see the different colors
that mingled together in such de
lightful hues along the countryside.
The short distance between Wake
Forest and Chapel Hill was covered
too quickly, and in a short time we
found ourselves a part of the huge
mass of traffic that filled the Uni
As soon as we entered the gates of
the college, the size of the campus
impressed us. Far above our heads
the buildings towered, huge struc
tures among the teres. We were giv
en a small pamphlet at the gate and
received a free ticket to the football
game a short time later. While look
ing the campus over and passing
away the remaining hour until lunch
time, some of our number talked
through the microphone installed on
the campus. It really was fun to lis
ten to those "broadcasts." It was
amazing to see how many of the sen
iors one of the group knew.
We finally decided that it was
lunch-time and everyone seemed to
want to eat at the cafeteria, so we
went there. We stood in line for an
hour and a half, but it was fun. One
of the members of our group was
very unfortunate and fainted while
waiting In line. I don't think any of
us enjoyed our lunch as well as we
might had, had that member been
with us. We came out of the cafe
teria at two o'clock and after finish
ing a hurried tour of the huge cam
pus, we went down to Kenan Sta
dium to see the Carolina-Appalach
ian football game. Hie scenery is

of us decided that this is the most
beautiful part of the campus. The
stadium is built between two natur
al hills. The valley is in the base of
the stadium and the cement bleach
ers are built on the hillside. Tempor
ary bleachers were arranged at the
east and west ends.
Even the hot sunshine didn't melt
the excitement in the crowd that
had gathered?a crowd that was es
timated to contain well over 25,000
seniors. The football game was en
joyed despite the fact that the girls
were more interested in the crowd
than in the game.

shuwu that by using fertilizer un

legume crop under in the spring, us

In fact, the yields were greater than
