Staff has labored early and late,
long and faithfully, to accomplish
the gigantic task before them.
The herculean efforts of the Staff
have made it possible for each
student to have his annual before
school is out. This is a great ad
vantage over the circulation of last
year’s annual. The annual last
year was not distributed to the
students until school had closed.
The price of the annual this year
is greatly reduced. The cost of the
1923 Reflector is $2.00. This small
cost should enable a great many
students to buy annuals.
Do not fail to place your order
for an annual today.

WHO’S WHO AND WHY
We could truthfully call Coach
all of “Uncle Noah’s” words which
signify the best qualities a man
can possess but as time and space
do not permit such elaborate praise,
we will set forth briefly his most
outstanding qualities. First of all,
he is the best football coach in
North Carolina and his rank in track
circles is no lower. Back of him
at Davidson is a collegiate record
which any one would be proud to
possess, but we, of the high school,
appreciate to a far greater extent
what he has done for us than all his
former glories. He is a man four
square, doing his bit and some more,
with a smile for every one. We wish
in this issue to extend our most
heartfelt thanks to Coach McFadden
for the great work that he has
already done and is now doing
for our high school tnd for us, as
students and alhlileL-. The best
of every thing in life for you,
Everybody likes a hard worker.
We have such a person in school
who answers to the name of Fred
Burroughs. Fred came back to high
school this year after a year of
“the world” with his habits of study
all broken. But he has come back
wonderfully and won the admiration
of the whole school. He has made
a good student, and also is a three-
letter man in athletics for the year.
He has made good.
Of all persons most deserving of
praise and receiving the least, is
the person who does his work with
out a bluster, without any shouting
about it. Fred Turner is just this sort
of fellow. But when a task is assigned
him, it’s usually done and not done
half way either. He managed the Sen
ior play exceptionally well, he is a
real declaimer, and he overcame tre
mendous handicaps and bcame a
letter man in football last fall.
Patty Webb is our new basketball
manager. We could find no one to
fill Helen Clapp’s place, better.
This is Patty with the varsity squad
and she has made a good showing.
With her as manager we look for
ward to the next year’s basketball.
John being a boy of tremendous
wit and humour, is very well liked.
He is not a three-letter man in ath
letics, but his interest in baseball
trips, too; for this season he has
makes up for ail the other sports.
And he knows how to get baseball
arranged two of the best trips that
have ever been taken from our
school. He not only manages, but
plays baseball, too.
If it is boosting the school, any
team, or just anything else that’s
good, is wanted, Norman Block gets
the call, he answers the call, per
forms the task and performs it
well. On the football team he made
a record, at basketball he was call
ed on time and time again, and
now that baseball has started, he
accepts the place at first base and
