Soon the leaves will turn red and yellow and be more beautiful than ever. And school is starting. Every one has decided to be glad for it’s got to happen sooner or later. Everyone is traveling over North Carolina and Virginia, shopping for clothes suitable for school in ole Dunn High. Margaret Lee Naylor and Virginia Vann seemed to be pretty well stocked up on the new clothes. They have traveled and bought everywhere between Raleigh and Fayetteville. But I think the most exciting wardrobe will be that of Emma Rogers Tyler. She is now getting ready for the Annual Deb utante Ball. She will have many dresses and suits to select and then her ball gown. In her new and good looking clothes and with her sweet personality. I know Rogie will wow them all. Even tho the storm warning was alerted along the Carolina coast, we still had two parties heading for the beach last weekend. Laney Hodges and Louise Brown headed that way Saturday afternoon and report a wonderful time although the wind and water were terribly rough. Emmett Aldredge and his em -1 ployees headed for Southport to go deep sea fishing Saturday after , noon. As you know Charles Johnson was in the group and was also I very disappointed, as was the whole group, when they received news that j no boats were to leave the harbor, j They returned early Sunday mor- I ning with long faces, but I hope that in the near future these men may be able to attempt it once again. Another sure sign that fall is on the way is band pracj.ioe The Dunn Hi Band started practicing Monday morning in order to be prepared for the opening of school Wednesday morning, for which we played and the first bail game Fri- I dav night. We welcomed several ! new members this year and are 1 looking forward to having more join us during the coming year. The | uniforms have been issued and of • f icers will be elected sometime this j week. Also we have much new mus ic, marches and concert pieces. I hope you all like to hear us as much as we like to play for you. The Turlington’s have returned from Washington, D. C„ where they visited most of August. Virginia and Everett really turned the city and surroundings upside down while their mother’s eyes were slued to the television. Now they are ex | pecting one for their household j Great expectations! Everett said I the capital is just as interesting : as ever and that he doesn’t mind ; I visiting it, over and over again at i all. Virginia visited all the music i ; shops and rounded up all me in -1 - formation on the hythmetic sub -1 i ject that was roundable. All in ! all, they say it was a winderful 1 trip. ' ’’Texas was hot," says Janet Hod -1 ges who has been viiuting) her aunt and uncle in Dallas this past ; month. The temperature soared to 104* and theu to hottest of Dallas. 109*, most of the time, but the conditioned home made the terap -1 | erature between 70 and 80* This 1 I she enjoyed very much. Most of ' J all she like the airplane ride down I there. The air was rather rough i and they were hitting air pockets 1 and bouncing up and down most of I I the time. But after they flew over | the Mississippi River the rest of ' | the trip was very smooth. While ’ j out there she visited the Greater 1 j Dallas Nightclub several times, the 1 Athletic club where you played bin -1 |go for $3 and won SSOO, and the 1 Country Club for swimming. Great fun! Sorry, folks, but I had some | bum information on the school' which Jane Westbrook has selected to attend this year. I have writ- 1 ten Salem where she was accepted but she decided on St. Mary’s, where J she has also been accepted. She leaves for St. Mary’s the 14th of September and until then, she will be studying geometry. She says that she’s getting along fine in it and that she still finds time to play golf and ride horseback once in a while. We’re gonna miss you, Jane, so every chance you get. hop on that bus or car and head for Dunn and us home folks. Hone you like St. Mary's as much as Dunn High likes you. Our working bov* now include l Cecil Johnson and Everett Turling- | ton. They have acquired part-time | jobs out at Dunn’s airport wash ing cars and airplanes. Cecil will be taking care of the airport while Everett's job is smaller, Hope you boys like the work. During the month of September the swimming pool will stay open —to our rejoice! Harvey Eldridge is managing it so now during the first hot school days, we can take a dip right after school. Oh happy day! Joyce Godwin has certainly had a variety of boys knocking on her door since she and Walter Byrd broke up.
