    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?
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.

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-
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. "If

I School Beautiful Champs
As the school year progresses, work on the school beautiful
project becomes more important. 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
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.
