Fall is just around the corner.
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
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
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.

to attend this year. I have writ- 1

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

St. Mary's as much as Dunn High
likes you.
