The active Marshals spent last
weekend at Ridgecrest; they paid
their expenses out of the tips that
they had received at various Ban
quets this year.
They left Friday night after a
banquet and arrived at Ridgecrest
early Saturday morning. Saturday
they w ent on a tour of the moun
tains near Ridgecrest. Sunday they
went in to Asheville to attend Sun
day School and arrived back atifJar-
dner-Webb late Sunday night.
The active Marshals, sponsored by
Miss Starnes, are Sara Blanton,
Julia Hancock, Agnes Mull, Rachel
Smith, Cora Ray Beam, Marion Ben-
field, Bryan Gillespie, Jim McDan
iels, James Stamey, Bob Mulhnax,
and chief Marshal, Sara Reece.
sophomores, including “The Green
Raider," so we’d better make it
good. We’ve slandered and we’ve
trampled, we’ve stepped on toes and
heads, and if there is something
chat weve missed, it is purely co
incidental. If it isn’t in this col
umn, we’ve decided to throw up our
hands and quit. We’ve jeopardized
our life and limbs by writing this
column, and it is our aim to do our
i^est .... I mean, our “dirt” . . . .
With broom in hand and dust-pan
in s ght, we shall now attempt to

Alorg with approximately nine-

rer the South, our own Boiling
Springs Baptist Church opened a se
ries of meetings on Sunday night,
April 8th. Dr. Lonnie Reavis from
Green Street Church in High Point
presented himself as a very ca-
p:»ble and effective evangelist. The
simplicity and vividness of his mes-
iges stirred us with inspiration.
Mr. Morrisett, assisted by Miss
mes at the organ, led the congre
gational singing with such a spirit,
that no one could resist joining in.
Several of the young people from
college rededicated their lives to the
