Game With Columbia
In Hertford On Friday
By BOB BATES
The Perquimans High football team
will play its first home game of the
season this Friday afternoon at 2:30
The Columbia High eleven will fur
nish the opposition and a real close
and interesting game should develop.
Although handicapped by such
small numbers the Perquimans squad
of 15 boys have practiced hard and
faifully all the fall and deserve
much credit for the results already
attained. The town of Hertford, as
well as the high school, should be
proud of their football team and of
the efforts of these 15 boys to raise
Hertford's long deflated athletic re
cord to a new high spot in the Albe
Opening their schedule against a
ruffired and tousrh team from Rich
Square, the Perquimans eleven show
ed they had the makings of a good
team. Trailing 20-0 at the half, they
rallied brilliantly in the last half to
play their more experienced oppon
ents, on even terms, losing finally
26-6.' The following Friday they
again journeyed out of town to op
pose Plymouth High's team who were
big and powerful looking in their
new uniforms, but proved that the
best dressed team is not always the
best by playing an inspired game to
record their first victory of the sea
Although saddened and weakened
by the loss of their star tackle, Paul
Tucker, the boys are preparing ear
nestly for the first home appearance
today, and hope to make it victory
No. 2. The team needs and deserves
support and encouragement from the
town people at this game as well as
at every other athletic encounter.
Support your town by supporting its
school athletic teams. They need
yourvhelp. Let's have a big crowd

Capt. Salisbury Speaks
To Student Body
By Blanche Chappell and Mary Thud
Captain E. A. Salisbury, retired U.
S. naval captain, made a talk to the
pupils of Perquimans County High
School last i Thursday morning. He
told of his life, the outstanding thing
in which was his being sent by the
Navy to take scientists on expeditions
in the South Seas.
The speaker began by saying that,
as a boy, he walked five miles to a
school attended by only three! to
seven pupils. His mother wrapped
his feet in clothes because he had no
One day in 1874 his uncle, a sea
captain, came to see his father and
offered to take one of the sons on his
next trip. Captain Salisbury, being
the youngest and of the least help
on the farm was chosen. His uncle
took him, then a twelve-year-old boy,
to the city and gave him his first
suit of clothes and pair of shoes.
He went on a trip around the world,
stopping at Calcutta, India; Sydney,
Australia; Liverpool, England; New
York, San Francisco, and then back
home. He was away nineteen
While he was on the trip he saw a
naval captain, and he decided that
to join the navy was what he was
going to do when he grew up. He
went home and worked his way
through high school. His teachers
saw that he was in earnest and help
ed him get an appointment from
President Cleveland to Annapolis.
Incidentally, Captain Salisbury made
the statement that the Americans
have the best public school system
in the world.
The National Geographic Magazine
has stated that Captain Salisbury has
visited more savage tribes than any
other man in the world.
One of the groups he visited was
the Society Group. Their school in
cluded only five grades. Some of the
students were from 18 to 20 years
old and were still in the fifth grade.
The name of the school was "2 plus
2 equals 4."
When white men jro to one of
these savage islands they never take
guns, but trinkets, to give to the
natives to show that they are
friends. If they took guns the sav
ages would kill them for the guns
rather than for the man, because
they think white men smell bad. In
one village he visited, the chief and
his men were cooking the chief's sick
cousin, because he would soon die
and they couldn't waste him. He
said that many Americans live on
their relatives also.
In conclusion Captain Salisbury
gave this advice: "Work while you
have an opportunity and show that
you appreciate being an American."
The talk was very much enjoyed
by the students of P. C. H. S. and
they wish he could be here again

Senior Class Meeting
By Lila Budd Stephens
The Senior Class of P. C. H. S.
met two weeks ago and elected the
Class officers, as follows:
President, Fred Campen.
Vice president, Doris Lane.
Secretary, Elizabeth Elliott.
Treasurer, Polly Tucker.
uast weeK a very important ques-
tion was brouirht un: Wht.hpr t.h
Seniors should graduate in caps and
gowns, or not. The Class voted and
the decision was in favor of caps
and gowns. The members of the
Class hope they have started some
thing for the classes that are behind.
The question of having a P. C. H. S.
Annual was also brought up, but not
voted on. If the merchants and oth
er people of the community will co
operate with the students by buying
space for advertisements, it can be
done. This high school has not had
an Annual since 1929. Why can't it
have one this year as well as it had
one years ago?
Friends, why not boost P. C. H. S. ?
