THE NEWSPAPER OF THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION Volume XXIH Friday, December 2, 1949, Goldsboro, N. C. Number 3 Rumanian Students Enroll At GHS For School Year By •liiiiniy Ellis Despite the fact that the life that they lead in Goldsboro High School is vastly different from their younger days in North Bu covina, in Rumania, Jane and Thaddeus Jurkiewitch agree that they are not finding it too diffi cult to adjust themselves to the American way of life. Jane, a becoming 13 year old, and her 16 year old brother, Ted, are both enrolled in the fresh man class and although they don’t have too firm a grip on the English language which is pop ular in the halls and on the campus of GHS, they have brok- down this temporary barrier with a friendly smile and a warming personality. Speaking with a heavy accent of their native language, Jane, the self-appointed spokesman for the two. said that there was not too much difference in the basic elements of their native lands’ schools and the Goldsboro school system. Their greatest difficulty thus far has come from not hav ing a thorough knowledge of the English language. Studying it three years has given them a good beginning, she said, and they are picking up what they don’t know very rapidly. Ted, a rather shy and retiring individual, broke in and said that while English ocame easy t them, their parents have had a tough time getting even the basic parts of si>eech as used in this country. To further complicate the matter, in he five months that they have b«en in the United States, they have lived in Bos ton, Kinston, Seven Springs, and Goldsboro and have not had the advantage of having been in one section long enough to get to know people who might help them to become better acquaint • ed with our vei’nacular. landing in Boston aboard the “General Muir,” the Jurkie witch family moved to North Carolina and finally to Golds boro where their father is em ployed in a local plumbing busi ness. Jane didn’t help the pride of the Kinston Chamber of Com merce any when she blurted out (See Students on Page 8) Raper Elected National D. E.
