By Beth Harriss
•‘1 have a gentleman, doctor.” This was the remark heard in the
assembly program this week when the New Hanover High School
cheerleaders entertained the student body with a quiz program.
aj though the questions were a trifle easy, they stumped quite a
iew. This type of program proved to be popular and re
quests for more like them were received. Mr. T. T. Hamilton was .
one of the contestants and he was a little hesitant as to whether i
to go to the state or not. He did and he picked a question out of !
(he box. He read it to himself and was silent. Then he popped out
with his answer. The joke of it all was that the answer was to his j
own question and not the one pulled out of the hat. Mr. Hamilton 1
certainly is fast at making up --— !
his own questions. What about
u Mr. Hamilton ? ? The prizes
awarded the winnig contestants
were tickets to the high school
fooball games. Even those that
were not so fortunate in know
ing their answer, also received
a tickei. There were a few of
t]ie students that ducked wnen
oilt 0f the cheerleaders came
toward them. Just think, you
might have won a ticket . . .
With a sigh of unsatisfaction,
the crowds left the Legion stadi
um Friday night where tne
Wildcats battled the Durham
Bulldogs to a 0-0 tie. It was
an exciting game, but not quite
exciting enough. The boys
played a fine game, but all in
vain. The Durham team over
powered us in weight and we
did well to hold them back.
After the game the dance

ed. I noticed Betty Walter home
from Wake Forest for the week
end and Jackie McCarley from
Siate. Decatur Blanchard from
Wallace was at the dance also.
Allhough there wasn’t as big a
crowd as usual, it was a fine
Attention everybody. After
this week you will be able to
find that particular someone’s
telephone number by looking
into the student telephone di
rectory which comes out this
week. I know this will mean a
lot to some and will certainly
save time. Also in the directory
will be everyones homeroom
r/ mber. This, too, will save a
lot of time. Laura Harriss is in
charge of the directories this
year and has worked hard with
her assistants in putting out a
good book. I know everyone will
be glad to see it.
This Tuesday the ROTC Band
and Battalion will march in the
Armistice Day parade. The pa
rade will leave the assembly
point at 10 o’clock and arrive
at the 13th and Ann Drill Field
at 11 o’clock for the services.
Along with the band and bat
talion will be the color guard,
the American Legion Drum and
Bugle Corps, Composite Compa
ny. 32nd Airborne Division, 82nd
Airborne Division vehicles, the
local National Guara unit, the
American Legion and Veterans
of Foreign War members, Wil
liston High chool Band, Boy
Scouts. Girl Scouts, and the
civic automobiles. It has been
planned to be a big event and
one of the largest parades held
n Wilmington for some time.
This Thursday night the an
nual bon fire will be held at

How about it????
A speech contest was held
last week in all of the speech
arts classes. The title for the
contest was “I Speak for De
mocracy.” All the members of
the classes were allowed to
complete and the finalist were
Betty Britz and Robert McCarl.
Betty and Robert made record
ings of the speech and sent
them to Gastonia where they
will compete for the State title
on November 5. The winner of,
the State title will enter the
National contest. Good luck to]

contest were Wallace West,
