by Miss Holbrook, presented an
original skit, “Dr. Booksby Pre

were encouraged to read for re

blow his top; Catherine Atkins,
with a chip on her shoulder;
Mickey Morton, who expressed
her feelings with a solo, “Make
Believe”; Wayne Page, who
imagined that he was a dog;
Wade Smith, whose brain had
been overwrought; Vicki Eagle,
imagining that he was a cow
boy and singing a solo, “Fm An
Old Cowhand”; Stephen Sasser,
who imagined that he was Sher
lock Holmes; Patsy Pettit, tap
dancer; Dwayne Waisner, with
the flying disease; Sandra West-
erlund, a professional swimmer;
and Carolyn Williams, who want
ed to be an actress. ^
Several other patients, all in
terested in some particular sport,
were Marion Stiller, Billie Low-
der, Neil Morton, Tommy John
son, Janet Glover, Edward Fent-
ers, and Johnnie Youngblood.
The second part of the pro
gram consisted of a quiz on
books. Martha Rae Harris won
the grand prize, while the rest of
the contestants won a smaller
prize.
Other contestants were Dickie
Cashwell, Arthur Lynn, Ann Ivey,
Bernice Roscoe, Carolyn Jones,
James Lisk, Julie Ussery, Robert
Shaver, Jimmie Griffin, Celia
Griffin, Janice Wallace, and
Linda"* Benner.

Juniors Excited
Over Class Rings
January 10 will be a long-re
membered day for the flighty Jun
iors. Their rings finally arrived!
Being a Junior isn’t all excite
ment, however; hard work is also
involved. In a recent meeting of
the junior class a few plans were
made concerning the raising of
funds for financing the Jr.-Sr.
Prom. A committee was selected
to sell small memory books to all
classes. This sale began Wednes
day, January 30.
At the same meeting a dance
for securing funds was planned.
This dance will be given Febru
ary 29, after a basketball game.

Biology Studen-i-s
Make Trip To Elon
The biology students of A.H.S.
recently spent a day at Elon col
lege at WCUNC at Greensboro.
Mrs. Lyke, the biology instructor,
arranged the tour of the Carolina
Biological Supply company at
Elon college. While at Elon, the
group saw how speciments are
preserved in plastic for shipment
to schools and colleges for study
by students.
The afternoon was spent at
WCUNC, where Dr.* Rogers of the
Botany Department took them on
a field trip and showed them
slides on plants. The group also
watched the WC students at work
in the various college labs.
Several of the experiments seen
at the colleges will be seen at the
annual A.H.S. science fair.
