incoin VoL. XXI, No. 3 LxNcoln High School, Chapel Hill, N. C. February, 1953 — 10c Shrubbery Brightens Sehool’s Landscape 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 cost. 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 trance.

Two Paintings Decorate Library 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 appreciate. 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.
