The Goldsboro Teen-Age Club has' been reopened and is ready for use over the week-end. The club was closed during the summer because of the polio situa tion in the state. The Seniors in Miss Emma Lou Garner’s and Miss Ida Gordner’s sociology classes have combined their efforts to reestablish the Teen- Age Club in Goldsboro. These classes are working in co operation with the executive com mittee of the Teen-Age Club. Zeno Spence, president, is adviser to all activities carried on. Other officers composing the executive committee are: Charles Britt, vice president, Margaret Dumas, secretary; Erskine Pope, treasurer; and Betty Lou Cox, chairman of the chaperons commit tee. A Halloween dance, at which Zeno Spence and his GHS Swingsters fur nished the music, was the initial project of the club. There was no charge to the dance, which was pre sented last Friday night, with Mr. Clifton Britton, Miss Emma Lou Garner and Miss Isabelle Williams as chaperones. Seniors from the two sociology, classes formed committees to plan the dance. Original invitations were mailed to every high school student. Temporary committee chairmen for the dance were: Margaret Dumas, invitations; Anne Stowe and Jean Pyatt, outside advertising; Jose phine Sears, school advertising; Huldah Powell, decorations; Bar bara Dillon, refreshments; and Ann Bizzell, chaperones. Since the dance a questionnaire circular has been sent to each student inquiring whether or not he attended the dance and if he were planning to join the Teen-Age Club. Results have not yet been tallied. A schedule for the hours has not yet been completed. Other activities such as hiking and dancing lessons are to be included. The club pro vides a snack bar, dancing, and facilities for those who do not dance. Reasons for the failure of the club were listed in the sociology classes as follows: (1) Polio this summer, (2) Poor attendance, (3) Lack of entertainment, (4) Lack of equipment, and (5) No “glamour”. In order to make the new club a success the classes are working to improve these conditions.
