^'Tuesday of last week our boys'
scliool team lost to the New Han
oxer high school Junior Varsity
b.#j_a narrow margin. This makes
tie teams even, as we had won
the1 first encounter. Nancy Swan
cheered up the loc^l boys after
their defeat by inviting them
to her birthday party at the J
USO. She received many nice!
gifts, including eight boxes of I
candy. Refreshments of punch.
cake, peanuts and candy hearts
were served the guests. All of us
had a swell time, Nancy.
Thursday a bus load of the
students headed for Leland with
a big day ahead of them. Our
boys won over an unusually
strong Shallotte team, 39 to 28
Richard Brendle was high scor
er with J6 points Bobby (Susie)
Spencer, scored 12 points, much
to his own surprise.
Although it was not a cruicial
game in the tournament, the con
test between our girls and Wac- J
camaw was an interesting affair.
We won 27 to 19. In this game
Catherine McRackan was high
scorer with 19 points and her
twin sister, Rebecca, came next
Saturday night saw our tough
game with the unbeaten Leland
girls. It ended with them still
unbeaten. We just did not make
it. The score of 38 to 14 in favor
of Leland does not look at all
good to us. But we are still aw
fully proud of our team, while
congratulating Leland. Next year
we intend to let nothing stand
in our way.
While we lost the girls cham
pionship for Brunswick county,
you already know that our boys
came through to beat Leland and
win in the' Friday night game.
This was really a thiller with the
lead see-sawing back and forth.
The final whistle saw Southport
ahead with a score of 23 to 20.
Our hqro of the night was Richard
Brendle, who netted 8 of our 23
points. We came home celebrat
ing and found a lot of folks
awaiting our arrival, as anxious
to know the results of the game
as we were to tell them.
So, nofr folks, our scheduled
basketball games are over for
the season. We may have a few
more and may engage in some of
the tournaments, but the all
Brunswick county series is ended.
We cheer leaders want to say that
we have thoroughly enjoyed the
parts we have been able to play
in the games and that we ap
preciate everyone's cpoperation.

THE MAN WHO CANNOT L>lb!
The History books tell us that George Washington was born in 1732, that
he was General of the Continental Army and first President of The United States.
They tell us that he was first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts
of his countrymen. And they say that George Washington died in his beloved Mount
Vernon home in 1799 after a lifetime of distinguished service in the cause of Ameri
can Independence. " ?
True, the first of this nation's immortal sons who was in a sense the Fath
er of our cherished liberty, has been in the Kingdom of the Almighty Father for a
hundred and fifty years. But the memory of the man still burns brightly and con
stantly in the hearts of all Americans who know, embrace, love Independence.
Independence!, George Washington lived for It, fought' for it, died praying
for it to forever remain the foundation upon which the edifice or Americanism was
constructed. Independence! A saered word, a priceless gift, blessing abundantly all
men and women on our Good Earth. Independence! It was the only foundation for
building America's greatness. Through the years it has enabled America to survive
foreign and civil wars, hatred, oppression. It has remained indestructible.
And indestructible it will remain.
American men and women in every city and town in every state of the
Union, work unceasingly to preserve Amerca as it should be, as George Washington
and all our heralded and unsung heroes wanted it to be.'
They wanted it to be a happy land where you and I could work for success,
love God as we choose, vote as we choose. They wanted no bigotry, no persecution, no
inhumanity of man to man.
They wanted it to be an enterprising land where you and I could raise our
voices against injustice and threats to our freedom.
And the America in which we live is such a land.
Thus it- will remain as long as we think American, act American, fight
American, argue American, are American.
This is the only creed, the only life-endowing and life-preserving principle of
It is the inviolate creed of George Washington and all great Americans.
George Washington, of whom it was said, "first in war, first in peace and
first in the hearts of his countrymen".
And he is still first, he cannot die, in the hearts of his countrymen.
