Tattler By WINIFRED HARRISS As the most talked-about of ail subjects at present is basketball, the Wildcat team, and the state championship game to be played here Tuesday night, before we begin to take a gander at some of the other highlights, let’s sorta peek into this matter which has the to wn° hum mi n g fnd living in expectancy for Tuesday night. “Was vour name drawn? ' Were*— You one of the eighty-eight?^ Such questions as these buzzed through the student body all through Thursday and Friday aft er the drawing of lots m the NHHS gymnasium which elimin ■ated eighty-eight students who ex pressed the desire to attend the state game by signing up. Since the game is to be played between our own hometown team, the Wildcats, and the Whirlies, the Greensboro high school team, and because it is to be the decid ing factor for the state champion ship, and because it's to be play ed right here in our own NHHS gymnasium, and then too this game marks the end of the sea son, quite naturally there was a scramble for tickets! And, as ex pected, more scrambled than re ceived! As the gymnasium seats only l, 764, it was found necessary to split the tickets proportionally in order to permit a fair distribu tion between the students and the public. Hours passed and the student committee, after long delibera tion, decided on drawing lots tc give the 820 students who request ed the 732 tickets an equal chance to obtain the coveted tickets. Thus is explained the situation. So Thursday during the sixth lunch period in the gymnasium, Nick, the tiny janitor at NHHS, pulled out from the basket the names of the eighty-eight unfor tunate students who would have to be placed on a waiting list for tickets, handed the fated slips of paper to J. C. Price and me, who sorrowfully called out the names over the loudspeaker while each and every person standing around us held his breath. I sho’ was mighty afraid I’d be pronouncing my own John Henry every time one of those slips was handed to me! But Lady Luck stuck by me for once!! These eighty - eight students names are placed on the list and will be the first to receive tickets should any of the three-hundred sent to the Greensboro high school be returned. Copies of this list have been placed on the bulletin boards throughout the school. Well, I’ll keep my fingers cross ed for you people who are hoping so hard for some tickets!! By the way, y’all. Those of you who were absent from school Fri day and are entitled to a basket ball ticket, better hustle by the legislature Room, 121, to pick up oiir ticket; “cause you only have until 10:30 Monday morning. At that time the reserve ■will be lift ed on all the tickets not claimed. So don’t come around too late to pick up that ticket you want so bad And if you change your mind about going to the game, let the people sitting in the Legislature Room waiting for you know about it right away One of the other talks of the school concerns basketball — the Duke - Durham tournament which comes about this coming week end, March 14, 15, in Durham at the new Duke gymnasium. This Southern High School Invitational Basketball tournament appears to be drawing a large number of NHHS student up tc Durham to see our team play in the games. The tournament begins Friday morning with four games and con tinues through Saturday night when the championship and con solation games will be played. The weekend promises to be fun for lots of us because recent word from up around Durham and Greensboro lets on that the snow is almost twelve inches deep there! The time rolls around when the eight boys who came out on top after taking the NROTC examin ation are to report to Washington, D. C. These boys are Paul Hor ton. Robert Congleton, Richard Gaiphin, Roger Corbett, Leonard Colley, Jack Bass, and Albert Beall. Up there in the Capital City these fellas will take a ‘ physical examination, and the names of those who pass that exam also will be sent to a board in this state. The successful candidates then will be notified on May 15 and will be taking the NROTC courses at the college they at tend next year. Hampton Frady is one of the Wilmington boys who is taking the NROTC course at Duke university this year, and Durwooa Orrell is taking this course down at Pass Christian in Louisiana. Standing before a patient helper down at one of the downtown stores, the seniors had a tape measure placed carefully around their head and filled out a card for height, weight, and name and address. Can it be that such trivial ac tions would signify the departure, the end of the good ‘ole high school days, for over three hun dred and fifty students? But the time for the measuring of caps and gowns is already here and al most over!! Golly, it doesn t seem that graduation for many of us is so close! When Friday night rolls around the Junior class will present its annual play. Chosen as the pro duction for this year is the two act comedy by Felicia Metcalfe, “Dear Papa!” Members of the cast include Catherine Crowe — Miss Lucinda: Ralph Goldstein — Don; Sue Boney —Janet; Betty Britz — Laine; Brooks Broome — Dicky; Geral dine Colkitt — Liz Estis; Genny Bullard—Mickey; Malcolm Craw ford—Mr. Carr; Betsey Williams —Mrs. Carr; Bradford Cantwell— George; Douglas Hall — Mr. Yeates: Elizabeth Poplin — Mrs. MacDuff; Moraley Schlessing er—Mr. J. Caswell Drennen; and Maysie Watkins—Carol Ruth. We’ll talk more about the junior play the middle of the week, so don’t forget the night of the play, Friday, March 14. The close of the nominating pe riod draws nearer and nearer, and it will end on Wednesday, March 12. So if you haven’t turn ed in you nomination for your class officers of next year, or for president of the student body for next year, hustle and give it to Billy McEachern, director of elec tions, or put it in his box in the office. The candidates whose nomina tions have been accepted by the Board of Elections, with regard to academic and citizenship aver ages, will Jje announced on Fri day, March 14. The nominees for president of the student body are to make campaign speeches be fore the student body on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 18 and 19. The candidates running for other offices will be introduced at that assembly also. „ Well, keep your fingers crossed, don’t run into any black cats, or rather don’t let them run into you and avoid walking under ladders for awhile to keep away any jinx that might be placed over our Wildcat team, so they can speed ahead and trample Greensboro Tuesday night! And in the mean .ime.1’511 be seeing y’all around! Something old, something new, Something borrowed, something blue *«.. and Towle Sterling, of course. *.

National DAR's Contribute Large Amount To Red Cross Drive WASHINGTON, March 8. — A pledge of complete support and cooperation in the drive of the American Red Cross for $60,000, 000 was given today by Mrs. Julius Y. Talmadge, president general of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Chapters of the DAR have main tained an American Red Cross committee and throughout the war this patriotic organization supplied the Red Cross with various mobile units and not only gave blood for blood plasma, but also contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the blood plasma fund. Mrs. George D. Schermerhom of Reading, Michigan, national chairman of the DAR Red Cross committee, has asked chapters to devote meetings to Red Cross pro grams, emphasizing accident pre vention. home nursing, first aid. the work of the Gray Ladies, nurses’ aids, and other Red Cross services. She said: “We would like to have every member of every chapter a mem ber of the American Red Cross. The DAR is proud of the aid given this great organization during the war. We will remember the many activities of the Red Cross which were conducted from office space provided in Memorial Continental Hall. “We hope that DAR members will continue their Red Cross work in time of peace as well as in time of war.” Mrs. Talmadge said that many DAR members will continue their services as nurses’ aids and are volunteering their services to the Red Cross in other capacities. She declared: "The American Red Cross head quarters are just across the street in Washington from the buildings of the DAR.

Marshburn. ond Fayetteville Woman's Club Is Federated (Continued From Page One) be known as the Elliott Anna Daingerfield room, and it is hoped that soon the club will have one of his paintings to hang there. The building was leased ' for five years at $1,000 per year, I with the privilege of buying during or at the expiration of the lease, the money paid in to be applied on the purchase price ol $20,000. In October 1945, the club decided to buy and made a down payment of $4,000 a mortgage was given to expire in 1958. In 1958. In ^January 1947, only 15 months after date of purchase, the mortgage was retired. Last year an auditorium was added on the ground floor for club meet ings, and this too is debt free. During the war the club sponsored the Cumberland county war bond sales, women’s di vision, and sold around six mil lion dollars worth of war bonds. It helped with various civic un dertakings, and increased its membership from around 1 0 0 in 1943, to the present 450. The main project of the Fayet teville Woman’s club is maintain ing a residence for girls who work for small salaries. For six years the Club House has been used for this purpose, housing 32 girls, with a hostess who makes a lovely home for the girls. This residence for girls was a happy solution to their housing problem during the war years. This will continue to be the chief interest of the club though a wide variety of activities are planned for the Suture. With the Fayetteville club now in the federation only Durham and Rocky Mount remain as the two cities of the state without a federated club. Mrs. K. J. Kindley of Charlotte, president of district five, and the presidents of chibs in that district held a luncheon meeting recently and studied the child feeding pro gram in North Carolina. Mrs. Joe Chaney, president of the Wingate Woman’s club, was made chair man of a committee to pursue the matter further. Mrs. Chaney has reported to Mrs. Bishopric the following: “The information we have been able to get is of a nature that makes us feel we should claim the attention of every woman in the state federation. The schools are facing a most dangerous sit uation because o f teacher shortage and this child feeding problem.” Mi-s. Bishopric immediately wrote to Senator Clyde R. Hoey and informed him of the concern of clubwomen that the school lunch program may be too dras tically curtailed, or abandoned al together if federal aid is not con tinued. “I know we have to con sider whether or not the program can be carried on as a non-profit cooperative enterprise,” she wrote, ‘‘but if the qualified people who have studied the question feel that the allowance of nine cents per meal served is -more than the government should put into it, could it not be lowered somewhat but continued? We have so many children per fami ly in North Carolina, more than in any other state, children need a warm well-balanced meal at noon, they can be taught nu trition this way better than any other perhaps, and we therefore regard this program as essen tial.” It is hoped that other club women will write to their repre sentatives in Congress about this important matter.
