Almost ail of us war* born and
raised iu the South but bow many of
us know bow and why it was a?mcd
Dixie? Money is an essential com
modity today and Its Importance in
past is shown hy -:ae fact that it was
from money that the South derived
the name “Dixie.” The principal bills
issued by a bank in New Orleans were
in flO denominations. The population
at this time was composed almost
equally of English and French, so the
hills were printed in English on one
side and in French on the other. On
the French side the word dix, mean
ing ten, was very prominent. Tbe
Americans throughout the Mississippi
Valley who did not know the proper
pronunciation of the word, called the
bills ‘‘dixies’’ and Louisana became
known as the “land of the dixies’’ or
“dixie land.’’ this expression inspired
Don Emmett to write the original
"Dixie Land” for a minstrel show
then performing in New York City In
it be used the phrase he bad so often
heard, “I wish I were in Dexie."
This song was afterwards rewritten
by General Albert Pike, who gave it
the battle thrill and the martial air
i that has made the song immortal and
stamped the name of "Dixie" per
manent ly on the South. .
Won’t parents ever get wise to the
old library gag: “Mama, can I go to
the library tonight, and get my His
tory?" And if Mama won’t let them
go they have an excuse when they
come home with a six on their report
cards. But does Mama know that they
go to the library every night they
use this excuse? And does she know
that they get their History before they
get run out for talking or miscon
duct? Mama does not, but we have a
pretty good idea.
The Rev. G. Z. Brown,a Negro pas
tor preached at the Mt. Zion Baptist
church, in Washington, D. C., on .lune
7. 1981, a sermon of 88,974 words last
ing twelve hours and ten minutes the
longest on record, our lamb chops, a
chicken leg, and a glass of milk, pro
vided him with the necessary vita
mins for the trying speech. H-? was
just back from a three weeks vaca
tion granted him by the congregation
in preparation for the sermon, and
having eaten the lamb chops he
mounted the puipit armed with the
chicken leg and the glass of milk.
It took him three hours to cover
“Gambling" in all its phases and
“Companionate Marriage” occupied
him until dark. Law-breaking, pro
hibition, and “The Evils of Dane’ng”
followed in quick succession and
"Famine” was reached about 10 p. m.,
when the chicken leg was disposed of.
He then spoke at length on “Pestil
ence" and “Drought,” the latter call
ing for the glass of milk.
Thbfyear we have three new Seniors
which we are mighty glad to have
us. Although there are 88 of us we
.ay, “the more the merrier,” espe
cially when they are as fine ai our
new arrivals.
Betsy Base is one of our new Sen
iors. She joined our ranks at the be
ginning of the year and already has
many new friends and admirers. We j
i may not have as big a school as Dur- i
ham, Betsy, but we have mighty good |
teachers. We hope that you will enjoy
your Senior year with us as much as
we will enjoy having you.
Bill Laws is another one of our new
new Seniors. He came to us from Dan
ville, Va. Everything is not entirely
uc-w to him because he used to live ih
Henderson. We hope that you are glad
to he back with us and that we can
make you feel at iTome.
James Coward is also a new arrival.
Ha canoe to us from our ancient rival
-Oxford. We see that James holds no
grudge against us, as he has gone out
for football. James, you sure have the
right spirit; we appreciate it. But,
wait. Isn’t there another reason why j
you came to Henderson?
Interview with “Barks" Reporter.
Stop knocking our High School, apd

in interview our new principal. Prof.
W. D. Payne, who in our opinion,
1 leads the list of blessings.
Henderson to most fortunate in hav
ing Prof. Payne aa the head of our
high school. Ho did not come to ua as
a stranger but as an endeared friend
who has worked with us and for us
for six years. Ha is a native of our
sister state, Virginia, and a graduate
of one of her ranking collages. Bridge

■ ord was such, that ia his senior year
1 he qualified as student assistant in
1 Physios. •
r We next see him at the University
t of Illinois during the summer of 1888.
r From 1925 to 1927 ha was director of
athletics and professor of maJthrma
» tics at Sheaaattdoeth College, Day
_ ton, Va., hte home. In 1997 he canec to
Hen demon as profs soar of msthsma
’ tics and director es athletics and In a
6 very short time won the love and re
spect of every high school student in
* the meanwhile, winning the heart of
w one of Hewdemoo’s fair teachers, who
1 became Mm. Payne in 1990. Mr. Payne

ly turned to Mr. Payne for h«s op
inion on this subject. To quote Mr.
Payne, he thinks we are no nearer a
new high school than we wer? five
years ago; nevertheless he maintains,
that, if the students' attitude towards
the present high school is what it
what it should be—loyalty and the
determination ot “carry on" against
all odds —it will mean a long step for
ward and wonderful aid in bringing a
new well equipped school In r few
Prof. Payne to much pleased with
his new coach, to say nothing of the
onttoe faculty, who at ends squarely
behind him.
It's right hard on Prof. Payne, be
ing the oaly married me sober of the
faculty, amid such a bevy of ’fair
winsome lassies” yet, says he, "Letty
is the fairer."
You Ask Me
By ???Oscaß???
What can the attraction be on
Charles street for all the Oxford boys?
Can it be centered around a dark
-yed beauty who drives that striking
Chevrolet coupe? Maybe our Wednes
day evening headliner could tell us
more about it. Or does be need infor
mation himself?
Is it true that the chief executive of
the Jolly Juniors has a certain pretty
Sophomore semi-brunette, who lives
on Chestnut street, in the palm of his
hand? We think the matter calls for
j The recent boycott of some f-ietty
Sophomores, which has made quite a
j breech in the younger high Bchool set,
causing the importation of Frankiin
ton girls to a dance recently, has been
watched with interest by many of us.
I hope that matters can be arranged
so that they will patronize local tal
ent next time.
Who was the stunning little brunet
te seen in a big Buick sedan with the
president of tbe Senior class last Sun
day afternoon? How about an Intro
duction, Mr. President? It seems you
are holding out on us.
Our right end, who so unfortunate
as to suffer a broken leg last year, I
seems to have lost his heart Th Oxford |
recently and to have been back at
every available opportunity looking
for it. I hope he won’t be as unfor
tunate with his heart as he was with
his leg.
NOTE: I haven’t forgotten you Red.
After you took the trouble to break
the news to mother, it would be
shameful to neglect you. So you’d bet

.Did you know that the High School
team averaged 164 pmini< T i n the Line
and 155 pounds in the backfield?
Through a survey made tbe other day
these things were found out. Storting
from the right side of the line we
have: James Mills, right erd, 152 Jbj.,
Albert Scoggins, tackle, 170 *bs.. Fred
Loughlin, right guard 176 lbs., and
"Unk" Turner center 160 lhs. The
left side of the line boasts: James
Coward, left guard 185 lbs., Durward
Hall, tackle 155 lbs., and William
Watkins, left end 145 pounds. In the
backfield we have: Bill Scoggins,
quarter back, 132 lbs., Frank Mills,
halfback 148 lbs., Peyton Refers, half
back 165 lbs., and Bog Green, fall
back 175 lbs.
These men make up the average
stated above but Loughlin to often
replaced by Kearney, who weighs 184
pounds, Coward is often replaced by
Grissom, vtio weighs 186 pounds and
* n ibis b/mgs average d .wn a
little. The backfield when replaced,
however, often .vise their av u’jgs Sa
most of the time the average weight
of the High i'Cnou’. Bulldogs Is around
160 pounds. This to a neat average
for a hign school team and according
to the weight, there to plenty room
left for speed, and the team Is not at
nil the slowest team that Henderson
has put out; on the contrary, tbe team
boasts many fist and shifty nun.
Therefore, *t would be worjt any
