Litter on our campus is a daily occurance. The shots above, starting with top center and going clockwise, are in the cafeteria on the bookshelves, outside the door of the vocational building, a table in the cafeteria, and the entrance of the vocational building. This type of trash will hurt our chances of becoming permanent possessors of the School Beautiful Trophy. Will you keep us from winning? TOLUME XLI GRIMSLEY SENIOR HIGH, GREENSBORO, N. C., JAN. 18, 1965 NUMBER & New Year Projects For YCCA Many youths in our city are continually working for their clubs, schools and communities. The Youth Council feels that through our projects we can help to give these teen-agers a small portion of the recognition they deserve. According to the Youth Council on Civic Affair’s publicity chairman at Grimsley, Ellen Kay, this is just what the Councd will be doing in the coming year. To begin the new year, a “Talent Night” will be presented. This “Talent Night” will give singers and other musicians a chance to display their abilities. This not not the only kind of talent that is wanted. It is also hoped that many young actors and writers will be in the “Talent Night”. Anyone who wishes is invited to present a skit for this program. Another Youth Council project designed to make aspiring writers Nancy Rhoades Releases Album “Most Talented Girl of the Class of ’65” has just released her first record, an album called “Ballads and Blues in Folk Music.” Nancy Rhoades, a senior at GHS, made the recording two months ago at Copeland Studios here in Greensboro. The record includes such songs as “House of the Rising Sun”, “All My Trials”, “The Railroad Builds Another One”, and “Alberta, Let Your Hair Hang Low”. At the present, the $3.98 records may be purchased only from Nancy. They will not be put in the stores until 500 copies are sold. She can be contacted in Homeroom 301 or at 299-5152. The album is on display on the bulletin board in the Main Hall. After Nancy sells the first 500 in Greensboro, a presser in Charlotte will make 1000 more to be dis tributed all over the south. Various young people think that the 500 will go very fast for the following reasons. First, all those who have heard Nancy will want a record. Second, Grimsley will render full support because of pride in having a fellow-student making a recording. Thirdly, the Greensboro public will also sup port Nancy for the same reason as that of GHS. Nancy stated the following when asked why she made the record ing: *T want to become a profes sional entertainer in folk music. I feel or rather I know that I must start somewhere, sometime.” “I do not care for the fad folk- music,” the future star said. A1 though she does not particularly like the name, Nancy is often call ed a purist, because she sings only the true folk-music with deep meanin^^. She admires Joan Baez and Odetta, also purists, Peter, Paul, and Mary are included in her favorites. Nancy likes to sing for an audi ence who enjoys and who under stands folk-music. She enjoys per forming for the college set best, because they, more than other ages, understand the true folk- music. The audiences for which she least cares to sing are adult civic groups. According to Nancy, when adults think of folk-music, they immediately picture either such songs as “Swanee River” or else just teen-age fads. Nancy now chooses her engage ments, instead of accepting all invitations, as she did at first.

Grimsley students have as their goal, the permanent possession of the city-wide School Beautiful trophy. Kathy Moore of Page heads the Youth Council on Civic Af fair’s Beautification Committee. Diane Aycock also of Page and John Seawell, a Grimsley student, round out the group which works to review of the school beautiful scrapbooks and check the participation of students on workdays. A new part of the areas cover ed by School Beautiful is window displays which each school sub mits to be used in the windows of unoccupied downtown stores. Chairmen of the GHS School Beautiful Committee are Lari Pow ell and Tim Weikel. This commit tee is composed of club represent atives who report on their respec tive club projects and plan the workdays that are held. During the first two weeks in January the three judges, Mrs, W. V. Blackburn, Mr. Bill Craft, and Mrs. J. Ross Pringle made tours of inspection to all of the campuses that are participating in the project. The main purpose of this visit was to view the campus before the majority of the work had begun. The January visit of the judges was the first official visit; May will bring the second. Each of these visits are equally important, although less important monthly tours are scheduled through the year. At the monthly visits, judges note the appearance of the campus and the effects of litterbugging. Student participation is consid ered 40% of the total scoring for the trophy. GHS students have been failing to attend the work days so points in this area will be lacking. At the first workday that the School Beautiful Committee spon sored, 15 people were recorded as present. John Seawell and Kathy Moore made note of the lack of participation which will undoubt edly cost Grimsley several points. 20 Students Participate In All State Orchestra Once again Grimsley Senior High has proved that it is the number one school in North Caro lina.

The Council has guests speakers from many different professions. Teen-agers who apply for the job of being a temporary reporter ask questions to the guests and from the information received write an article. The article that is found to be the most outstanding will be pub lished in “The Greensboro Rec ord.” The first Press Conference to be held had Judge Richardson Preyer as guest and many other professions will be represented in future conferences. Ken Bell has been placed in charge of committee to talk with realtors in Greensboro who might lend the use of windows in down town stores which are not in service for displays to be con tributed by various schools in the city. Clubs wanting to help with this project will be assigned a window to decorote on the themes of “Youth” or “Sports”. Besides being entertaining for those who view them and a source of enjoyment for those who create them, these displays will help to demonstrate a few of the many talents and abilities that Greens boro’s young people are develop ing. 'Mardigras' Selected For Midwinters Theme The Mardi Gras as celebrated in. New Orleans, will be the theme of this year’s Midwinter Dance at Grimsley High slated for Jan uary 30. Betsy Bourne, chairman of the Student Council committee that is planning the semi-formal dance, hopes to decorate the gym with multicolor balloons and stream ers to achieve an effect of gaiety and fun. This year’s theme will form a great contrast with that of last year which created the mellow mood of “Something To Remem ber.” Tickets can be purchased from members of the Student Council at a price of $1.50 per couplt. Refreshments will be served to the more than four hundred students that are expected to attend. Midwinters is held each year following exams to present an occasion for students to release their tensions which have built up during that period.
