and the beneficial and enjoyable time
that each one had.

Juniors Sponsor Dance After
On Friday, April 8, the juniors of
Lexington High School entertained the
seniors with a delightful banquet at
the American Legion Hut. The hut
was attractively decorated carrying out
a Dutch banquet scheme. Spring
flowers, especially tulips, occupied the
centerplace of each table. Vari-color-
ed balloons and crepe paper created
a blending of color overhead. Guests
found their places by charming Dutch
shoe place cards and printed booklets
in blue and white containing menu
and program. Each senior was pre
sented with a lovely gift.
The program opened with the group
singing “Let Mq Call You Sweetheart”
and “School Days,” after which Bob
bie Green, president of the junior
ciass, gave the welcome. Russell Rev-
elle rendered several popular selections
preceding the address to the seniors,
which was made by Charles Elkin,
vice president of the junior class. The
response to the address to the seniors
was made by Ralph Morris, president
of the senior class. Clara Ann Miller
gave a short humorous sketch of her
four years in high school, and was fol
lowed by Joan Peeler, who sang sev
eral solos. Odessa Snow toasted the
senior teachers to which Mrs. Ottis
Hedrick responded. E. H. Easter gave
several vocal selections prior to the
short addresses of Principal A. R. Bul
lock and Supt. L. E. Andrews.
In concluding the progra.m, the jun
iors sane' to the seniors to ■'J'hicb the.
seniors responded in song.
Waitresses were dressed in Dutch
fashion and were picked from the
sophomore and freshman classes.
These included Virginia Holmes Brink-
ley, Peeny Bernhardt, Jean Bruton,
Jenky Miller, Bill Gordon, Virginia
Olive, Elizabeth Ann Hulin, Mary
Pickett, Faith Berrier, Betty Ward,
Ann Corn, Martha Redwine, Jane
Moore and Ma.ud Walton Miller.
As a final tribute to the seniors, the
juniors sponsored a dance immediate
ly following the banquet. Music for

“Sophisticators” of Salisbury.
HI-Y CLUB PRESENTS
“DR. I, KILLEM”
The Hi-Y Club presented its long
awaited medicine show on March 31.
The show, entitled ‘‘Dr. I. Killem,” had
a cast containing such notable char
acters as “Dr. Killem” Harris; “Tom
Tom” Cherry, “Hootche Gootche”
Link; “Chief Rain-in-the-Face” Hor
ner; “I’m My Mama’s Baby” Easter;
the Three R Z A Radio Ramblers,
Zohnson, Zray and Zrevelle; Carl
“Atlas”; “Thin Man” Corn; and oth
ers necessary to the cast. Judging
from the sucess of the show, Mr. H.
B. Tucker, Hi-Y sponsor, must have
once been a “medicine man" himself.
The Utica Jubilee Singers, who were
on the same ticket, delighted the aud
ience with many negro spirituals and
folk songs. The five negroes were
students at Utica College, Miss., and
are now singing over the radio.
LEXHIPEP TO SPONSOR MOVIE
Since the subscription fees and ads
do not cover expenses for the type of
paper that the “LEXHIPEP” is, the
staff is sponsoring a picture in the
high school auditorium on May 6.
This will include a thirty minute reel
of scenes in the schools and about
town. There will be a small admis
sion charge and the staff solicits the
cooperation of the student body and
town people in this attempt to finance
a good senior issue of the “Lexhipep”.
