LxNcoln High School, Chapel Hill, N. C.
February, 1953 — 10c
Just as the interior requires
finishings, tile floors, painted
walls, modern light fixtures and
boards, so does the exterior re
quire finishings. The exterior of
the school building has needed
something to remove the dull,
drab, uninteresting appearance
since last September 10, 1952.
A project has been jointly un
dertaken by the administration,
faculty, and students to place
shrubbery around the front of
the building. The Forrest
Nurseries of Efland, North Caro
lina agreed to deliver, plant, and
arrange the shrubs for a total
of three hundred twenty-six
dollars and fifty cents. Classes
will donate equal shares to cover
The shrubs placed around the
school are eleven Puamidai \r-
barirtoes (an evergreen tree of
the pine family), nine Nandinas,
eight Lucindas, one Pryacantha
(red upright), two English Lau
rels, two Ilux Rofunclifolias, two
Lucidium Recurvifoliums, two
Julieanne Barberries, one Red
Flame Barberry, and fourteen
Sherwood Abelias. They are ex
quisitely placed one at each col
umn and nine at the front en

hearsing for two annual pro-1
ductions, one for me Piedmont j
District Drama Festival, held !
at Dudley High School, Greens- '
boro, North Carolina, scheduled !
this year for March 9th; and the
annual high school production of
a three-act play, now scheduled
for March 20th.
The Festival play is the one-
act drama. Next of Kin, by Wal
ter Hackett. The play empha
sizes the keen understanding of
human nature by the late Dr.
Peter Hartley, in making his
will. The ghost of Dr. Hartley
which appears in monologue to
introduce the play is enacted by
Ross Farrington. The none too
important next of Lin—the bro
ther, the sister-in-law, and
niece—are portrayed by Alfred
Parrish, Ernestine King, and
Ola Mae Farrington, respective
Other characters consist of
the competent housekeeper of
the late doctor, Mary Dorcutt,
enacted by Roberta Morrow; the |
efficient secretary, Maureen
Desmond, enacted by Delores
Walker, and the well-mannered,
dignified lav-^er, who comes to
read the last will and testament
of the late Peter Hartley, en
acted by Walter Jackson.
Marian Brooks is under-study

ed niece of Dr. Peter Hartley;
and Emma Hairston is under
study of the sister-in-law, color

Both productions are directed
by Mrs. M. D. Turner.
The Friends Organization of
Chapel Hill has rented two
beautiful paintings for the
school from the Person Art Gal
lery. These paintings have been
hung in the library. The paint
ings are “Still Life of Fruit,”
by Claude Monet, and “Rock
Landscape,” by Paul Cezanne.
The painting “Still Life of
Fruit, was painted by Monet, a
Frenchman. Monet’s paintings
are based on the theory that no
object has a definite fixed color,
but is colored the way it looks
at a particular moment.
The second painting, “Rock
Landscape,” by Paul Cezanne,
shows nature in its natural form.
Cezanne was also French. His
paintings are fresh in color, but
are sometimes hard to under
stand. Their beauty is easy to
Miss Frances Yocum has given
to the library a large colorful
chart called “Economy of the
Pacific.’’ It shows the chief pro
ducts of the countries of the
world. This chart is to be framed
and also hung in the library.
