closing exercises consisted of nothing
more than the awarding of prizes,
two songs and a few closing remarks

The following is a list of the pupils
winning prizes offered in our school:
Spelling-Veron McWhorter, sixth
grade; Inez Holliday, seventh grade;
Veldee McWhorter, eighth grade. Be
havior-Gert'rude Brown, Erjcnest
Johnson and Ralph Finley.
Our ball team has made a very
splendid record this year. Although
it has met sonic of the best equipped
and best trained teams in Anderson
and Pickens counties, it hasn't lost
a game. The boys have made them
selves a record worthy to be proud
of. We consider our victory over the
Liberty high school a very important
on - as their team has lost only to
us. However, sonic of our most
cherished victories were won on An
derson county filIds. W, defeated
the splendid Walker-McElmoyle team
by a decisive score of 6 to 1. The
Melton team also suffered anl over
whelming defeat at our hands. ut
of all our victories, we cherished the
one over the Denver school most.
This team has not been beaten in
Anderson county, and naturally, there
was a vast deal of rivalry manifested
when the champions of Anderson
county were met by the "hickory"
nine from Pickens. The score was
11 to 4.
The following is the Flat Rock
lineup: Veldee McWhorter, pitcher;
Clark Young, catcher; Lang Smith,
first base. Vernon McWhorter, second
base; Ralph Hiamlin, third base; Ben

drama from the'famous story by F.
llookinson Smith. It is a heart ap
pealing love story which plunges
through adventure, thrills and trag

tiful and unforgettable ending. The
underwater scenes are the finest ever
made. Ono of the great scenes is
where Caleb West saves the life of
the man who wronged him when he is
trapped in the sunken ship. It is
one of the greatest scenes dramati
