ILL’S HOTEL SPECIAL i- - - TEEN AGE TATTLER (By Cynthia 9oh nson The 29th sho isn t far off, and its arrival marks the end of four i years spent at NHHS. They ve been mighty happy years, and during ' them many lasting friendships have been made. But all of us are glad to be getting on in the world, and have our high school education I behind .us. If you get a chance, borrow an annual from a graduate and look through it. I say if you get a chance ’cause we carry them everywhere we go so we can get people to sign them. But they really are swell — the best any graduating class has had to offer. Our thanks tor this perfect year book goes to quite a few people. Pat Hardwick did more than her share on it, while the work of George Darden, Douglas McKoy as editor-in-chief, and Harry Wel lott as business manager cannot go unrewarded. The annual is dedi cated each year to a teacher who is selected by an assembly of the students, and this year they chose to dedicate it to Mrs. Edith Win ningham. It is written in memory of those who died in their coun try., service for the ideals of peace and freedom for every one. The fine art work is the handiwork of a true artist, Kath ryn Kester. The elass poet of ’46 is our own Sue Norton who did a swell job with the class poem. So you see from my thumbnail sketch that this Is a tip-top annual—one of which we have a right to brag and be proud. The poor mail sorters will have quite a bit of work ahead of them from now ’til the end of next week. The senior announcements have been received, and, when home work assignments have been at tended to, the rest of the time before going to bed is spent in ad dressing them and getting them ready for the mail. It’s a greater thrill than jou can imagine to tuck your very own calling card be tween the immaculate pages of the announcement and know that you are a member of the graduating class that is sending out these an nouncement. Yes, it does mean a lot to be a senior. It’s well worth working for. Our robes should be here before long. Then there will be a pick-up in the working days of the photographers around town, cause all of us want pictures taken in our caps and gowns for the family to keep, and to let that certain someone know that even in all the excitement of graduation we haven’t forgotten him for a single minute. Tthmi APRICOT Cflavored _ BRANDT PHITIET«?2*BB g? rtnnd-(-bo&/~GOOO! ■finis breakfast* of full-flavored, wholesome SHREDDED V^HEAT1 Practices for commencement and class night will be held throughout this week. They will be under the direction of Mrs. George LeGrand, and from her previous performances, I know they’ll be a success. Today the seniors will go to the First Baptist church to re hearse their part in the Bacca laureate services to be held Sun day, May 26. Rev. Walter B. Freed will deliver the graduation address. If you’ve noticed that there are no chickens on the market, or no strawberries, it’s because the senior girls are buying food to last them the week-end on the beach. From all accounts, we should have loads of fun. We’re going to take a record player and all of the latest recordings, and play them all night so we’ll be able to stay awake. I think we’d better take some right strong coffee for this same reason! Dungarees, shorts, T-shirts, plaid shirts, and especial ly bathsuits will be the clothes to take. But of course it will prob ably rain that week-end. A few of the fortunates have dates for the prom and will come up long enough for the dance that night. And most of us plan to attend the Dramatics club play, “Best Foot Forward” on Saturday night. And, from our own decision, we will at tend either our own church on Sunday, or go to the ones on the beach. So even in the midst of a!1 our good times, there will be time for church. Oh, I forgot to say that there will be no males allowed. But of course if anybody has a date, we’ll let them stay ’til maybe 11 o’clock. I’m sorry that 1 never have been able to get the cast for the play, but I just can’t seem to get in touch with Miss Jane King who is doing £he coaching. I’ll try to have something on it before it takes place. Most of the required work for the school year has been complet ed, and class time now is being taken up with reviewing for the final exams—which aren’t too far off! So study hard, and pass all of your exams! It helps in more ways than one. But most important it helps you to graduate proud of the record you have made for yourself in NHHS. Be sure to fill your fountain pens and take your annuals with you to school, and until next time, I’ll close with my usual, So long!
