FOOTBALL BOYS RECEIVE JACKETS
Have you noticed the new look in
jackets' the last few days? It
seems to be a new fad. The .reason
for this is that last Wednesday,
January 20, Coach Watson presented
part of the boys with their foot-
ball jackets. The jackets earned
by those boys who have played
their last year have not been re-
ceived, but will be presented at a
later date. The gold colored jac-
kets are very pretty with black
and gold wrist and waist bands.
The boys who received their jac-
kets are as follow: Underclass
Lettermen---Horton Eustace, Eugene
Usry, James Adams, W. T. Baughman,
Landon Roberts, Joe Wood, J. L.
Prideaux, Howard Blair, Danny Pow-
ell, Bobby Patrick, Warren Robert-
son, Jerry Burney; Reserve Letters
---Bob Knox, Billy Green; Albert
Wilson, Jack Eustace; Managers-*
Charles Gholson, and Donale Craw-
ford. We are proud of these boys
and their accomplishments,

FUN FOR YOU
On Wednesday and Thursday nights
of this week there was an enter-
tainment given in the High School
Auditorium by the American Legion,
The mock radio show was direct-
ed by Wanda Williams and was per-
formed by local talent.
This amusing program was well
There’s going to be a near-rict,.
a riot of laughs,,.at the High
School .Auditorium when the Junior
class presents the rollicking
three-act farce comedy, ’’Maid to
Order,” late in February.
Of course, it’s all a lot of
nonsense, but it’s mighty funny
no'rense, although to the charac-
ters on the stage the proceedings
are serious indeed.
The plot concerns a young hus-
band who Is fed up with the way
his wife’s titled cousins from
England keep on staying in his
house without paying any board.
He is certain in his own mind that
the cousins are fakes, and hires a
private detective to check up on
them. Then he is certain that the
English people are escaped crimi-
nals; using his house as a hide-
away i 5o he gets his old college
friehdiiiand actor...*to imperson-
ate a maid, hoping in this way to
”get the goods” on his unwelcome
visitors. But there is a mix-up,
as usually happens in cases like
this, when his wife mistakes Come-
on Kate... a gangster’s moll..for
the new maid and puts her to work.
And-Ronald, the actor, is forced
to stand by and watch his rival
making love to his fiancee, with-
out being able to tell them who he
is. But these are just a few of
the many funny situations. Those
who want to know more will have to
come and see the play.
Several of the teachers and stu-
dents have been absent the last
Miss Benton and Mrs. Campbell
could not get to school Monday be-
cause of icy roads. Quite a few
of the students could not get here
the first part of the week.
Miss Henson has returned to
school,after two weeks absence due
Here’s what’s next.
