Barbara Russell Makes A
Fine Record At Greenville
Remember Barbara Russell?
While living in Goldsboro she
won both admiration and respect
of all those who knew her. I"
1948, she left high school, but
we knew .that with the qualities
she possessed, she would con
tinue to go forward—and she
has. Recently this article was
published in the “Green Lights,”
the Greenville Hi School paper.
With great pleasure and much
pride we republish this story;
That old proverb, “the best
things come in small packages,”
certainly applies when the name
Barbara Russell is mentioned.
This petite senior’s pleasing per
sonality, sincerity, and interest
in all school activities, make her
a well-rounded student.
Barbara was transferred from
Goldsboro high school i" her
junior year and since her en
trance into GHS, has established
a decided place for herself in
the student body.
Because of her outstanding
ability and efficiency, this dark-
haired miss "ow holds several
important offices. She is secre
tary of the senior class, secre
tary-treasurer of the NHS, vice-
president of the French club,
president of the Methodist Youth
Fellowship, and is an SCA rep
resentative. Her newest honor is
class editor of the annual Tau.
The vivacious upperclassman’s
never tiring energy and pep con
vinced students of her ability- as
a cheerer; thus she was chosen
A bright, cheery smile and a
pleasant greeting always accom
pany Barbara. You probably
think that all the honors which
have been bestowed upon her
have made her a bit conceited
but these recognitions have not
in the least affected this modest
The enthusiastic worker was
.selected by the SCA as sponsor
for the Greenville-Kinston foot
ball game. She also serves as
chairman of the SCA telephone
Barbara maintains a high
scholastic average. Other than
the five subjects which she is
pursueing, she still finds spare
time to participate in the Glee
A glance at Barbara’s record
for her two, yearsj i" GHS' is
proof enough that ^ne is a great
asset and when s-he crosses the
stage in June, 1950 to receive
her diploma, the school will lose
a truly industrious worker.

successful young man from Bos

plot straightened out and his
name was cleared. Every body
was satisfied with the outcome.

His biggest surprise came
when he found that he wasn’t
the only one taking this kind of
a trip. Several policemen told
him that another fellow was
just ahead of him, and was also
taking a trans-country cycle
tour. Finally in Washington, D.
C. they met. The other bike-rider
was Joseph Camerlengo who had
just returned from a trip to
Canada. They parted company

various schools and churches in
and around Goldsboro. Charles is
deeply religious and visits
churches of all denominations
along the way, although he does
not believe in any one denomina

education for this through the

The first day out Charles made

One interesting thing recorded
in his notebook is the top speed
he has ridden his bicycle. Going
down a hill he once hit a top
speed of sixty miles per hour.
The average mileage he picks up
a day is pretty close to seventy-

Here’s the way some students
spend a typical day at GHS.
At 8:55 when you should al-
readq be in class “Grade” and C.
W. are still standing at the cor
ner of room 14 talking. “Gracie”
somehow manages i^ot to be late
but I wonder how many times C.
W, has had to get an admit slip
for being tardy.
A few of the girls start the day
right in typing by doing their
work as they should. Barbara,
Mavis and Larraine hand in their
work while “me, myself and ,”
am always late with an assign
ment. (Just can’t seem to get
the hang of typing this yeai-,
heard “eGrtiee” and Carolyn
make the announcement.)
As I walk in to room 21 I hear
Lina say “Shug” I haven’t read
my History, what am I going to
do? Of course if she were to look
around at all those other studious
people she would find no one else
had read it either.
R-r-r-r-ing, oh boy, activity pe
riod, now maybe we can get our
bookkeeping. These words come
from Jean, Pauline and Ednai
Last minute studying^ shame on
you. Wei, wemanaged to finish
just as the bell rings to go to
third period. Here we go again,
talking in the hall, only this time
it's Bobby and Jean, hey you two,
the bells’ ringing, you’ll be late.
Now to begin third period, I
guess everyone Is working hard.
While others are working in His
tory, typing, English, ect.. I’m
struggling with bookkeeping, just
wondering if it’s going to balance.
It does and just in time for there
goes the bell again this time
During lunch you can hear al
most anyone say and I quote,
“somebody give me a book report,
I’ve got to have one next period,
English you know. Well no one
seems to have an extra- one, one
to spare that it. I’ll keep my
fingers crossed but I’m sure I’ll
get a zero. Luck being with me,
