’ This weeK nas Deen a Dusy one and with it a lot of work. Clubs
have been organized, with the choosing of officers, knd various
other activities have been planned.
Tuesday and Wednesday were the big days for twenty NHHS
students. For it was then that they made their wild attempt to
become a cheerleader. Tuesday was, of course, Freshman and
Sophomore assembly day so they were the first to cast their votes
for the four best tryouts: two boys and two girls.
Wednesday uie same twenty
trodded once more to the stage
to satisfy the none too pleasing
junioi and Seniors. Each con
testant was a wee bit shaky, but
what else could be expected.
The old cheerleaders spent all
Wednesday afternoon counting
votes and it wasn’t until Thurs
day moiling ma„ me iucKy lour
were announced. They were
Donald Peterson. Pete Acree,
Shirlene Conrad and Yours Tru
jy We will begin work pract:'
ing this week and make our first
attempt next Friday night at the
Charleston football game. It w
probably take a short time to
-et over the fright, but please
jjave patience. We’ll learn.
Tuesday will be the long ex
pected day for the high school
gemors. It is Tuesday that the
superlatives will be elected
There are twenty-eight superla
tives and it should take much
consideration of the matter be
fore a decision is made. It is
this record that is kept through
out ad the years to remind us of
0ur high school days so vote on
those people you will be justly
If you’ve noticed a gleam on
certain ROTC boys lately it
could easily be because the of
ficers of the year have been an
nounced. All cadets have been
anxiously awaiting this news and
it was a great day when it ar
Bradford Wiggins has the top
bunk as Cadet Lieutenant
Colonel. On Bradford’s staff will
be Floyd Williams, Mrtjor;
Brooks Broome, Battalion Adju
tant and Jimmy Singleton, Sup

It is always very exciting to
fitness the first parade for the
jew officers and I’m sure it is
»ven more exciting for the of
icers. Good luck and don t be
oo hard on the boys because
■emember you were a first and
second year man once too.
Just recently a contest was
keld bv the new owners of Rus
jell’s Soda shop at 13th and Mar
ket. This contest was held to
find a new name for the soda
(hop. R. W. Helmes, a college
6tudent, fAind that he won $25
lor choosing the name “Campus
Grill”. Miss Emma Lossen, Miss
Betty 'Halligan and Mrs. George
West, all members of the high
school faculty, were the judges.
All day Friday various groups
headed north towards Norfolk.
Mr. Johnnie Chase, a popular
member of the faculty, left at
three fifteen with a car load of
boys. Poli Barefoot, Carl
Brown, Victor Taylor and Junie
Huband were the lucky ones to
get this ride. Some had their
doubts as to whether they’d
make the game by eight, but
seems they did. Jean Pope and
Betty Britz were others heading
lor ' Norfolk. They left with
Jean’s mother and father. I’m
lure if it hd been just a little

over two hundred miles it was
just out of the question,
for many.
You can’t say school will keep
the principal away from a foot
ball game because at 4 o’cIock
Friday afternoon our own Mr.
Hamilton flew to Norfolk for tne
all important clash. Mayoe f’m
letting you in on a secret bur.
they say this was Mr. Hamil
ton’s first flight. Please, 10 hard
feelings Mr. Hamilton, but 1
might ask, “How was it?”
Our game with Norfolk seem
ed to have been a struggle in
vain for as it turned out we
battled Maury High to a o • o
score. From all the reports from
the witnesses of the game Jim
my Piner, Jim Gibson and Char
lie Smith were the stars but the
whole team played a mighty fine
If you noticed a group of girls
dash to the third row of the
Bailey Friday night it was no
doubt Jean Bobbitt, Libba Roe,
Sue Boney and Sally Kelly. Sal
ly is a senior this year and just
returned from Germany this
summer where her father was
stationed. She has light brown
hair and big blue yes. When ask
ed about her trip to Germany
she replied that it was very in
teresting, but it was also fine to
be back. Saw Betty Davis and
Jean Ingram having a hard time
finding seats as were Grade
Gurganus and Lyn Kirk. I also
noticed Nancy Trask and Jack
Preston being very much enter
tained by the movie on our home
town Wilmington.
Our first “Wildcat” came out
Thursday and it seemed to be
quite a hit. It is on newsprint
this year at the request of so
many students. The Journalism
class, composed of thirteen stu
dents, worked hard on this paper
and it hopes to satisfy the whole
student body. The Wildstaff has
been completed and is as fol
lows: Leonard Colley, editor in
chief; Howard Tally, business
manager; Tommie Vaught, news
editor; Jean Bobbitt, feature edi
tor; Bobby Haas, spots editor;
Fritz Stelljes, make up editorf
Priscilla King, exchange editor;
Leroy Bradshaw, photographic
editor and Maisie Watkins, ad
vertising manager. With so f*
in the class and twice as mucl
work the class is always bus
so any advice or improvemr
is always appreciated. .
Seems that’s all for now so
“Au Revoir”.
