THE ZEBULON RECORD Volume XXV. Number 30. Wakelon PTA Speakers Discuss Sportsmanship; Plan November Event By Mrs. Theo B. Davis Wakelon’s Parent-Teacher As sociation now has a paid member ship of three hundred sixty, which means one hundred eighty dollars in the treasury from that source alone. A good percentage of the members were present at the October meeting Monday night to hear that Miss Husketh’s room won the five-dollar prize for best work in the campaign. With Mrs. Claude Pippin presid ing in a business session announce ment was made concerning the supper to be given on the night of November 5 to help raise funds for the association’s projects for this year. Whether turkey or chicken is to be the main feature was left to the committee in charge. Rev. Paul Carruth, Methodist pastor, led the devotional, em phasizing the supreme importance of loyalty to God in daily life. Sportsmanship was discussed, first by Coach Jacob Smith, who explained the principles he seeks to inculcate in pupils. He mention ed knowing the rules, which gives assurance; competence, which comes by practice; poise, a comb ination of results from mastery of the first two; self-control and re straint, which assure good man ners when joined to a desire to be courteous; and a realization that even seemingly trivial rules are important. Mr. Smith called at tention to these rules as applying not only to athletics, but to social behavior everywhere. BUI Brantley Speaks Bill Brantley of the student body said that parents, who are training leaders of the future, may impress them by example more than precept. He asked that they attend games, thus encouraging the teams; but that they refrain from comments or criticism that might hurt or offend. Ralph Talton defined sports manship according to the diction ary and also as learning how to live with people. He declared that both child and teacher have two strikes against them, if the home has failed in its part of this training; that children must learn fair play instead of trying as adults to master its rules. Miss Alderman of the faculty gave a piano solo, a composition by Debussy as the final feature of the program.
