When the great Whale and Marine
show comes into Mt. Pleasant for ex-

GREEN HILL AGRICULTURAL
STUDENTS GIVE MINSTREL
Ten Green Hill Vocational Agricul-
tural students, assisted by their
teacher, planned and put on a black-
faced minstrel play at the local school
building Friday night, May 13th, be-
fore about 150 people.
In order to train boys in public
speaking, and at the same time raise
funds with which to carry out agri-
cultural activities during the remain-
der of school year, these boys put on
this play. The entertainment con-
sisted of humorous leadings, jokes,
southern melody songs, string band
music, and the black faced plays.
The following students were in the
play: Woodrow Allen, Gordon Free-
man, Reginald Johnson, Lee Jones,
ir.ot.pVi Griffith, Clifton M*,e<vn; Ffaipb
Page, Donald Ricks, Robert Sanders
and Judd Strother. Music was fur-
nished by Dave Hartley, Amos Pruitt,
and Rex Rolfe throughout the even-
