    ^een of May To Reign
Over Spring Festivities
Girls, (and any interested
males) what is that elusive charm,
that most of us spend all of our
lives constantly seeking, which
merits popularity, swooning males,
and beauty crowns? Well, most of
us, unfortunately, will never suc

those among us who have. Any
careful questioning on our part

sources are Anne Wrenn, our
lovely May Queen, Lane McGre
gor, our charming Senior Attend-
and, Dottie Crews, the radiant
Junior Attendant, and petite Becky
Schweistris, the pretty Sophomore
These Senior High beauties
definitely do not fall into the
category of “beauty without
brains,” nor do they prove the
popular assertion that “beauty is
only skin-deep.” These four love
lies have and are contributing
their talents and services in all

Meets in High Point

various delegates will be asked
to make a report on the activities
of their Latin class. Lunch will
be served to the convention at
tendants ait noon in the school
Because of the extremely full
schedule of Greensboro Senior
High School, it is impossible for
the Latin students to celebrate
Latin Week any way other than
by class discussions. Other schools
who are able to devote more time
to Latin Week have class projects,
present skits, and use assembly
programs for their week’s activi
The students who are planning
to attend the convention from
our school are as follows: Betty

Last, but not least, is Becky
Schweistris, the sophomore s’
choice for their honor attendant.
Becky also has served on the Stu
dent Council and has recently been
re-elected to serve next year. Al
though a comparative newcomer,
her soft brown eyes and hair are
fast becoming a Senior High
standout. It is already evident that
in h^r high school career she will
take a place of leadership.
These four girls will be sup

the great day arrives. They, too,
are a credit to our G. H. S. With
the promise of such a beautiful
