What Will Happen to
Adolf Hitler?
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,

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.
