B ROUSING AROUN
Hoxv is our new library coming?
a recent interview MissRosser, our
hard-working librarian who merits
entire school's support and thanks,
said that it vjould take five years
to catalogue our present library,
however, to date she has citalo^ued
the Fiction, the Reference and the
nev/ books. This is a bi;’- step in the
*iiss Rosser could give few details
on bhe cost, furnishings, and date of
occupanc^r of the new library building.
She did, however, assure me that it
will be modern, comfortable, and roomy.
Hiss Rosser directed the interview
into a discussion of her favorite sub
ject these days. This subject, as
you probably know, is the library's
150 nevv books ranging from Black Rose
to Chinese History.
On a cold rainy night, November 19
to be exact, four P. J. C. boys drove
a gangrene green Hudson out to Daniels
Store on the Red Springs road.
Driving into the store's parking
lot, "T. LI." practically had to drive
up a drain pipe tp avoid being trampled
by a huge 1947 Cadillac.
A short, stout .lan leaped out and
uttered, "Vhere iss - - but alas,
his companion with her peroxided hair
and covering three-fourths of the huge
front seat, had the window lovrered by
nov/ and assuraed direction of the inter
view. Thus I assumed the companion to
be the wife or "Mamma."
A'lamma said, "Vhere is Laurinburg?
Iss dis ^laxton? How ve get to Bennetts-
ville? Ve is lost five hours nowl Ve
go to Florida I"
The books were bought with an accent
on pleasure. The subject matter (Miss
Rosser twisted my arm until I said I'd
include this long list) ranges over:

liiss Rosser reports that the most
popular of the new books are: Ilamraa's
Bank Account, Black Ross, Black
Tion,' I/Iy Antonia, The Kobe, and Ernie
P^^ie''s Brave Men.
ROCK HILL HI''rH SuIIOOL BAHD VISITS

One of South Carolines greatest
high school bands, the Rock Hill
High School Band, visitod P. J. C.
during Homecoming und I'layod for the
festivities. The sevent^^-five riccs
band vso.s under the direction of Kr.
Harrison, and wr.s secured for P. J. C.
largely by the efforts of Dick "'arri-
son. The l~axton Cafe fed t aera on
their stay hero and the merc?i:\nts nr-
ran.^ed for the transportation.
The boys from P. J. C. rallied under
strain and "S." informed mamma that
Daniels Store didn't constitute the
whole of the *-axton ouginoss district.
"On the, contrarjr," he jaid, "liaxton
has a whole block of stoires and a stop
light. Speaking of stoplights, i^adame,
it's straight dovm this street a few
bl:icks; j/'ou turn right at this stop

must turn left and from there go to

Pappa got back in the Cadillac; and as
they were driving toward downtown Maxton,
Kamraa's last audible words drifted
through her closing window. "Aren't
dese natives ouaint?"
