All the work was so good.” Editor’s Note: We regret that Caroline Kilpatrick’s name was omitted from the list of local winners in the last issue. Caroline won first place in Crayon Resist, and second place in Water Color. On Thursday, Mar. 17, Mr. Vann Cutts’ history classes had an unusual speaker from Ghana, Africa.' Mr. S.amuer Darko Hammond, a student from Africa who is studying in America, spoke to the classes about his country and answered the many curious questions that the students asked. Among the information discussed by Mr. Hammond was marriage in Africa. Mr. Hammond said that the Christians in Africa had only one wife. “The moslems don’t believe in divorce,” said Mr. Hammond, “but if a married man is caught playing around with another woman, he must bring her to his wife or he will be in big trouble.” The students seemed particu larly interested in the question if there were any manhood tests. In Mr. Hammond’s tribe there were no such tests, but in another tribe there was a deer hunting festival that could possibly be called a manhood test. Mr. Hammond said the people in Africa enjoy soccer as the main sport but basketball, ping-pong, and volleyball were enjoyed too. In closing Mr. Hammond said that the Americans are the most hospitable people he knows.
