We feel that If we’ve passed all our examinations that we’ve earned a rest and maybe that’s true, but we should guard again* slacking up too much. If we slack up It just makes It all the harder for us to start again. The beat thing to do Is to make a flying Otari for the spring semester now. If we do this we’ll find the last lap much easier. • We might as well face the fact that the spring semester Is going to be harder than Lh? fall semester has been. Last semester due to T>e fact that our school term was cut. we had to work much faster. Os course, we nil felt the burden of th.s extra work This semester it seems that we are going to have to work even faster. Besides this all the classes have extra activities during the spring semester then too, we will soon catch spring fever, become lazy aud want to play •nnfbkey”. Thus wfth the weather and the work against use we are go* ing to have to “dig hard.” ' The seniors must believe in the wis dom of being early birds They have * already selected their invitations and are getting things under way for their Senior play. The Juniors are not far behind, they have already laid aside a “neat egg” for the banquet and they have started negotiations about their rings. An early start is always to be commended because it usually brings good results. Let s hope these do.

We see all —We hear all—We tell all Our “machine gun action” science ; leacher seems to be fickle indeed. Last j week it was History and this week it is Latin. We wonder why the great change, maybe he is following the ex ample set by our "Big Milk and Cream Man.” We also wonder if, the sub ject of the talk whch appeared so | amusing last week in first period lib rary was Science or Laiin. If so. to all appearances it was much funnier ; than any we have been privaleged to listen to on classes. | There is a group of girls in H. H. S. who seem to have grasped with a strangle hold the opportunity that leap year provides to all of the fairer sex. College boys seem to be the pin -1 nacle of the!r ambitions, especially Wake Forest boys. So great is thA** i desire to “rise" and “shine” in the eyes of the aforesaid. Wake Forest masculine population that they have recently and quite often blessed Wake Forest with their presence. Well Maybe a reversal of the “Cave Man” theory is appreciated by males; we think not though. However the boys from Wake Forest seem to enjoy it. The girls brought thre of them home with them the other night, conse quently these thre ehad to bum back to school after dark. In case you don't know who they ore. check over these in your memory: 1.

THE WHO’S WHO OF HENDERSON HIGH SCHOOL i Would you like a postage stamp , portrait of our vice presidents? Sec j ond on the staff of the senior class is j Louise Powell, a very attractive girl. Louise has been a n important mem ber in her class from the sixth grade up until now. She is a member of the Glee Club, a good sport, a good student, and a little bird says that she likes Oxford. In the Junior class. Dean Bunn Is | filling the vice president’s place. Dean showed that he had the football spirit last fail and we hope he makes first team next year. He is handsome, al ways smiling; he likes to argue, a trait which has caused him to leave a room several times: in f*ct, Dean is a good all-round student in every way. Here’s a girl who b the Vice presi dent of the Sophomores, Emma Bur chett. Everybody knows Emma! She is a popular member of the “younger set” of our school. She has a win ning personality; she is a good sport, generally being ready for a good time; she is always laughing and carefree. The freshmen’s choice is Milton Dworsky. This Is Milton’* first year in a Henderson school. He seems to be very popular though. He is not worried about a need to gain more flesh, because he has plenty. He is the boy who aid* a great deal in keeping n smile on the face of the freshmen with his wKty sayings.

W ■*» , SPORTS ' FLASH -BACKS The Henderson high Bulldog* met Chapel Hill high last Friday night for the first time since that rather start ing game of 1929 in which the lads from Chapel Hill administered to the Bulldog* a defeat of no mean pro portions. Since Coach Payne has been with the Henderson high school the two schools have engaged In four games and have each won two victories (this is counting the game of last Friday night.) The Bulldogs of 1928 were de feated in the lone game in what must have baoo a reel thriller. Chapel Hill sank the wjaning hasket In the last few seconds of play to win by the score of 28 to 2? In this hotly con tested battle Hop Harris wae high scorer with eleven points, while Moore was second high scorer \ wish five point*. The Test of the points were divided among many sub*. In 1929 the Bulldogs played the Wild Gate twice and broke even with them. They won the first game, 83 to 13. Dap tain Hagwood was the star of the game and scored 11 point*. John Church scored eight points and our own Payton Rogers scored 5 Boyd and Loughlin each sank one field goal while Faulkner scored one free toes. For the second game of 1929 we won’t Bay much, only that Hen derson was defeated by the over whelming score of 28 to 2. We were unable to ascertain who scored thoee two lone points for Henderson. However this year’s team evened the score by defeating Chapel Hill last Friday night. We have heard from several sour ces that last week’s article “So Far In 1932“ was ac ase of crowing too soon because of the fact Oxford Or phanage defeated the Bulldogs. To the casual ol>server that would seem the case, the team had only played two games and there we were praising them for their splendid playing. How ever "*ire were praising them, no* so much for their having conic out of two gamej undefeoted but for tb(fir Splen did showing under such adverse con d;tioim. As for the Orphanage’s vic tory over Henderson, well that calls for even more praise in our opinion. For Henderaon with as few days of practice as they had had; to lose to a team !n mid-season shape in as close a game as that one was. was in more ways than one almost unbelievable. Oxford Orphanage’s defeat of Hen derson by only two points was a moral victory for a team which has doped to k)*e by a score triple to its own. THE OUTLOOK OF THE 1929 BASKETBALL SEASON FOR GIRLS By Dorothy Grissom The present outlook of the 1932 girls’ basketball season is very bright. Con sidered as a whole the team is excep tionally good. Although many of the girls are small and know little of the techniques of the game they are be ing developed into a fast and well work.ng squad of girls. This year Coach Bryant has three varsity members. Mary Neathery. Velma Johnson and Dorothy Grissom, as a nucleus around which lo build the team. She will hardly have a definite line-up except, for these three girls as the ohters are equally good and will be run in from time to time. Following is the schedule which will be played by the girls this season: Jan. 22 - Zel> Vance here. Jan. 26-Townsville here. Jan. 29—Oxford high here. Feb. 2—Oxford Orphanage there. Feb. s—Efland5 —Efland here. Feb. 12 —Warrenton here. Feb. 16—Roanoke Rapids here. Feb. 19 —Zeb Vance here. Feb. 24—Warrenton there. Feb. 26 —Oxford high there. SPORT COMMENTS On Tuesday night of this week Henderson high enters the second top' of their race for state honors. They will meet all the foes that they have already played in return games, the location of the games will be revers ed. Out of the four conference games engaged in by the Bulldogs so far, they have ran up 63 points to their opponents 50 points and have emerg ed victorious in three of the games. (Chapel Hill high is not entered In the conference). We are proud of our girl’s team, es pecially of those rookies who played their first game against Zeb Vance. We must not forget that they defeat ed at team which had played quite a few games while it was Henderson’s first game. The Henderaon All-Stars have got ten together quite a strong aggregation and with sufficient practice we would not hesitate to send them against any of the strongest teams of the State. As you know Coach Payne is one of their big guns, while another of their stars is Marion Rogers. Be sure to watch them the next time they play. A WORD OF APPRECIATION Note: (The high school P. T. A. held a memorial service for Mrs. Beck last Wednesday, wish to add our bit. Therefore the staff, through Pene lope Watkins, asked Mrs. L. R. Gooch who was associated with Mrs. Beck in the work on the school grounds, to write this note.) As the time draws near to begin thinking of gardens and planting, our minds naturally turn to one who is no longer with us—Mre. J. W. Beck, who died early la* summer. We are prone to take our friend* for granted and feel that they ought to know without being told that we love and appreciate them, but Mre. Beck’s miark for the high school was so unusual that we did try to let her know how much she meant to us. She was untiring in her effort* to improve the high school grounds, not because she had anything to gain, but because she loved beautiful things, as her own home and the King’s Daugh ter* Park and the hedge of privett and low hardy poplars will always be a memorial to her. We can nest show our appreciation to Mrs. Beck by carrying »n the work already begun by her. CLAM ACTIVITIES Monday, February 8 has beer r r t as the date for the selection of the the Junior class rings.

Jerk Off the Blindfold and Turn on the Steam An old sea captain once said “Any windjammer can ride out a storm with the hatches battered down and the sails clewed up; but it takes a steamship to ride out a dead calm.” All of which reminds us that too many business con cerns with goods and services for sale are trying to meet a dead calm by huddling below the decks.
