Vol. XV, No. 25 Chapel Hill High School, Chapel Hill, N. C. Thursday, April 19, 1945 Students Compete In Scholarship Contest A Tribute (The following' is a tribute to President Roosevelt written' on the day of his death by Edith Wrenn, C.H.H.S. Senior, and printed by the Durham Herald, April 15, 1945.) Today, April 12th, 1945, Ameri ca has lost a great man. Long ago the lines of tiredness creased his kind face, but until the time of his death, the flame of his truly American partiotism has never weakened. Before long the whole world will know, and across this war-torn world a silent tear shall be shed. His memory shall always be cherished. No one can say President Roosevelt was a great man, he was more than that. He was an American. His undying loyalty, his possession of true human un derstanding shall be held close to the American people’s heart for-ever. Together, with our presi dent, we have made our country a better, stronger nation. Togeth er, he fought with us for the right to keep our freedom, for the very substance for which we stand. But tonight this man, that has raised us from a crippled nation, is gone. We know that President Roosevelt must have died with the fighting spirit of loyalty still in his heart. He shall always be a symbol, for which America stands. As this noble man died something in America ‘died too, but with the never failing help of God, a new hope shall be born, and America again shall lift her head. Editor Billy Carmichael announced recently that the 1945 Hillife, CHHS’s year book, will be ready for dis tribution around May 20. • Hodges and Company t:; Hodges Becomes Softball Coach With A Smile And A Prayer In the spring a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of love.

Tall and brunette, Ann devotes much of her time not spent in structing at the University to her new job. Several afternoons a week she may be seen, clip board in one hand and a pencil in the other, looking over her charges as they work out on the lower ath letic field.
