JOURNALISM CLASS EDITS YEAR'S-
END EDITION OF THE NEWS ARGUS
Readers who take the time to
read the masthead of this issue

saw. The names represent stu
dents of the second semester
class in journalism.
Miss Betty Lawrence, a senior,
served as editor of this edition.
The paper’s editor-in-chief, Miss
Mary Roseboro, was at home in
Charlotte to do her practice
teaching. Because several staff
members also were involved in
education training, the regular
staff was not available.
Members of the journalism

newspaper before time for final
examinations and final grades.
A native of Durham, Miss Law

TRIBUTE TO KENNEDY
(MAY 29 IS BIRTHDAY OF THE LATE PRESIDENT)
Julia Ann McCullough
President Kennedy was a righteous man,
He believed in equal rights for all, all over the land.
He traveled far, and he traveled wide.
With his beautiful wife Jackie by his side.
They greeted people and shook many hands.
President Kennedy met many of his countrymen,
He had many a foe, and many a friend.
He spoke out always for what he believed,
On his word he very seldom retrieved.
He sought to make this country even stronger.
Nobody knew that his time wouldn’t be longer.
President Kennedy strove for world peace.
He always did his best, and never the least.
Time and pressure never riled this great man,
For he Continued to strive for peace all over the land.
He carried out his duties both large and small.
He thought of his countrymen, whether short or tall.
President Kennedy had a burden he carried.
His country came first and he never tarried.
He carried his messages all over the world,
Hearts opened up for him, and flats were unfurled.
Now that his earthly duties have forever ceased.
We will never forget that this great man stroved for world peace.
