Many people ask this question today. Nobody of course, has the answer. I will try to give you an answer to this question. There are many possibilities. Some people think that Hitler will be assassinated by Himmler, Goering, or some other Nazi of ficial who wishes to control Ger many. Even now as our united armies are pushing into Germany the question is still undecided. Hitler, who has sent, like many of his fellow Nazis, money to Switzer land and other neutral countries, (See COMMENTS, page four) Seniors Order Invitations Cards and invitations for the 1945 graduation were ordered last week from the Star Brand En graving Company with whom CHHS has had a contract for sev eral years. Approximately $170 was collected from the fifty-three seniors ordering the invitations, all of which are^alike and resemble a wedding invitation. There were, however, many varied styles of cards from which the seniors made their choice. Because of war time conditions the company cannot set a definite date on which the order will ar rive, but it is expected in late spring. Also in connection with gradu ation, all seniors are being meas ured for caps and gowns to be or dered in the near future. Both Boys and Girls To Take Part In Three-day Tournment P.-T. A. Meeting Held The second P.T.A. meeting of this school year was held in the elementary school auditorium last week. The first part of the program consisted of a movie showing the Pre-Flight base here and bases in other parts of the United States, especially emphasizing the facili ties for physical education and recreation, certain of which might be practical in the high school. Following the moving picture a discussion of the teachers salary question was held. This was es pecially interesting since the state legislature arrived at their com promise decision the same eve ning. Mr. Russell, the president of the P.T.A., then made a short talk in praise of the school-bus drivers for their good work in spite of such difficulties as bad roads and crowded buses. Also slated for this meeting was the election of officers but this was postponed by the nominating committee. Alumni Notes Having completed boot training in Bainbridge, Maryland, C. R. Farrell has returned to Chapel Hill on an eleven day leave. Roland “Foo” Giduz of the U. S. Army, who was recently wound ed in France, is now in Chapel Hill after being discharged from an Army hospital. Melvin “Pack” Ellington visit ed CHHS last week while on leave from the Navy. “Pack” was in the invasion of Casablanca and expects to go to the South Pacific after his present leave. It was officially announced last week that the Chapel Hill High School girls’ and boys’ bas ketball teams had accepted a bid to participate in the Burlington Invitation Basketball Tournament to be played at Elon College, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, March 8, 9, and 10. The announcement was made jointly by Superintendent A. W. Honey cutt and Coaches Bud Stanbach and Mary Jane Lloyd. Although the official draw for the tournament has not been made public, it is reported that the boys’ team will probably be top seeded because of its impressive won-lost record. The procedure to be followed in the tournament will be the customary round-by-round elimination. Therefore, for either Wildcat team to win the tourney they will have to take consecutive victories on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. This will mark the second year in a row that a Chapel Hill High School team has played in a post season tourney. It will be remem bered that last year the Hillian boys advanced to the State semi finals (Class “B”) only to drop two straight heart-breakers to a powerful Sanford five. This will be the first year, though, that a Chapel Hill High girls’ team has ever played in any kind of tour nament. Coaches Lloyd and Stanbach stated last week that they were confident that win or lose their charges would make a competent showing. On the other hand, both coaches stated that they were very anxious not only to make a good showing, but also to bring home to Chapel Hill its first tour nament victory in the history of S. C. Does Fine Job Of Post-Game Parties The end of a successful series of parties came last Friday night when Chapel Hill High played its last home game. The practice of entertaining visiting teams opened early in the season with a square dance in the Tin Can for the Hills boro team and has continually im proved throughout the season. The last few parties have been held in the Recreation Center where en tertainment facilities are more complete. The CHHS student council, sponsor of the informal parties, has received several letters from the visiting teams thanking the school for the fine hospitality shown by its students and facul ty. In return, CHHS teams have been entertained by Efland and Durham Central High. The Cary team was so impressed with the Recreation Center that it is inves tigating the possibility of estab lishing a center of its own. The school feels this practice successful not only because of the entertainment it provided for CHHS students, but also because it has helped to bring the stu dents and administration into closer contact. Plans are being made to enable the practice to continue into the swimming and baseball seasons. Much credit is due to the mem bers of the Student Council who planned and executed the plans for these parties. Thanks is also due to the members of the staff of the Center without whose aid many of these parties could not have been held. the school. Backing up this claim was the fact that both teams have been taking extra heavy workouts during the past week.
