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

Hodges Becomes Softball Coach
With A Smile And A Prayer
In the spring a young man’s
fancy turns to thoughts of love.
But in the spring a young wo
man’s fancy turns to thoughts of
—you guessed —softball. And as
it does, a new personage enters
the CHHS athletic limelight as
Miss Ann Hodges takes over the
job of girls’ softball coach.
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. Carefully she watches
each girl, occasionally making
some notation or remark. Should
you ask her just how her team is
shaping up, she will give the usual
sad look that coaches have at this
time of year and then remark,
