Willis has been principal of Aiken High School. Mr. Willis seemed to have an inner understanding of the problems of high school students and was always ready to listen, with wisdom and kindness, to any problem brought to him. Mrs. Hazel McNeil, secretary to Mr. Willis, was also ready to bear and help solve student problems. Her work didn’t stop with secretarial duties: she was often called upon to arrange schedules, soothe irritated parents, give messages to student . and teachers, and aid the daily dozens of visitors who came to Aiken I ligh School. oMiss Katherine Anthony Social Studies A.

The likrarv in one of its quieter moments.SENIORS I lie years of wishing, waiting, and hoping linally came to an end lor a happy and proud group of students. After much work they had obtained, as their common goals, positions as seniors. Senior—what a meaning that word had! It meant some could exempt exams, have a senior study hall, anc I hold coveted positions in the school. Guided by their capable officers, the seniors raised funds to help convert the student c enter into a combination lounge-study hall. I hese lunds helped to pay lor chairs, coffee tables, and lamps. In November, the seniors gave their play, “Who Wouldn I Be Crazy! which was well received by the student body. Other outstanding activities participated in by the seniors were the “Ring-Robe ceremony, the senior dance, the homecoming parade, intramural basketball games, and a spring dance, themed “Rhapsody in Lavender.

During the year the (lass participated in many activities and executed many projects. One of these was the junior dance given in October with the theme “Autumn leaves.’ Another project was the traditional junior play. “Gangway for Gl losts was chosen for the performance in March of this year. The profits from these activities were invested in the long awaited and anticipated junior-senior banquet and dance, which climaxed the year for both juniors and seniors.

Juniors work on bulletin hoards.FRESHMEN The Class of 1960 seemed “all there” during the ’56-57 school term—it was the largest freshman class ever to enter Aiken High School. Attempting to demonstrate this strength in numbers, many freshmen participated in extra-curricular activities. The frosh hoys’ team won the intramural basketball tournament; some of the girls played on the Hornelte sextet team: some other freshmen participated in the annual statewide Latin forum, which was held in Rock Hill in March. On the more aesthetic side, some of the freshmen indicated literary and art talent as well as originality and variety of hobbies, some of which were displayed in the A -wing showcase. (netting off to a good start might have been the underlying motive of this—the Class of ’60. f reshmen in and out of class.Adams. (icraldine Adcock, Rayburn Aiken. Jeanne Alexander, Judy Allen.

She looks expectantly around. He: lli! Sorry I m late, nut the coach really put in through the paces. She: You do look tired. Is it really that rough? He: No. not really. A guy could stay after school every day for practice of some sort. After football season comes haskethall practice; then in the spring track, hasehall, and golf h gin. She: We surely are fortunate to have facilities for so many sports. He: Ye , we are! Soy how d you enjoy the football game I'riday night? She: Oh. great! And you know our hand is terrific at half-time. He: But you can I heat the cheerleaders either. I hey really stir the crowd up to buzz. She: But I missed out on a lot of the buzzing, because I volunteered to work in the concession stands—but it was fun. He: Speaking of concessions reminds me that I’m hungry. I want a hornetburger.

FOOTBALL... y Parris, and oucfies On August 15. 1956, seventy-live Aiken I ligh School football prospects and Coach Robert Stutts began training for the rigid fall schedule of nine games. I hirty-four practices later, on September 7, the Hornets met powerful Richmond Academy of Augusta. Georgia. I he Aiken team fought gamely, but the cadets ol Augusta had more depth and won 26-0. I he following Friday, the Stuttsmen played Langley-Bath-Clearwater. In a hard-fought contest. Aiken beat the favored Lions 6-0. In the annual Cotton Festival game, the Hornets displayed one of the most determined defensive effort s ol the season. but the single wing attack of the Graniteville Rocks finally triumphed as they won 6-0. On September 28. I lie Aiken team entertained the Boys Catholic I ligh School ol Augusta. Georgia. I he Hornets played the Augusta outfit to a standstill, but two touch- 64Knct’ling: WVsIey Key.

Brook land-Cay ce s Bearcats a n d Aiken s I lornets ended the game in a deadlock ol 6-6. I he Eau Claire Shamrocks were the next gridiron foes of the Aiken team. Alter an old-fashioned ‘rock em, sock’em battle, the Shamrocks won 13-0. October 26. the Hornets journeyed to North Augusta to tangle with their arch-rivals, the Yellow Jackets of North Augusta High. I he game seemed to be one ol the most exciting football games in recent years, bor three quarters, the Stuttsmen pounded the el low Jacket powerhouse over the lield. I Jowever, the highly favored Jackets took advantage of a break in the fourth quarter and won 6-0. 65SENIOR... On the following Friday, the Hornets met Orangeburg at Hagood Stadium. The Orangeburg Indians could do no wrong, while the I lornets could do no right. I lie Indians, being the number three team in South Carolina, took Aiken to the cleaners 46-0. In the last game of the season, the Aiken out lit went to Batesburg-Leesville to play the top rated B-L team. I he inspired Hornets dominated the game, but again lacked scoring punch as they were tied 6-6. I he 1956 edition of the Hornet loothall team was noted lor its spirit and sportsmanship. With lettermen returning, the loothall future is promising: and the 1957 Hornets hope to be a feared team.

Coach Determination and spirit were not enough to overcome the combination of lack of height and lack of experience for the 57 edition ol the Green Hornets. Although the Hornets lost all hut one game, they showed a tremendous desire to win and continually thrilled the Aiken crowds with their display of sportsmanship. Realizing that every good organization has good leaders, the 5. Hornets chose guard Jerry Coker and forward Carroll Ray to lead them as their co-captains. A unified team effort proved insufficient in that lack of height was the Hornets undoing. Proof of this was that rebound was a foreign term in the Hornet camp. 1 he 195, Aiken High basketball team did not have a winning season, but they did exemplify all that is good and noble in sporting— It is not whether one wins or loses; it is how one plays the game.’ 70SCORES H V Graniteville ... 37 75 L.-B.-C 65 ( iraniteville . . . 45 33 Orangeburg .... . . . 46 64 I3.-C ... 33 45 Orangeburg .... . . . 39 57 Spartanburg .... . . .

GIRLS' BASKETBALL Hard work and constant practice were tlie keynotes for success found in the 1957 Hornettes. These maxims proved successful for the I lornettes. as they had a very successful season winning all hut one game. 1 he slight smudge on the record came when a highly spirited North Augusta team defeated the Aiken sextet. I his setback was avenged when the same sextet smothered the North Augusta team in a return match. Lead by the high scorers Wendy Rivenbark and ( atherine Redd, the Hornettes entered every game with much enthusiasm and an instilled will to win. With the fine performances from forwards Wendy Rivenbark, Catherine Redd, and Aletha Bond, and guards Lou Johnson. Joanne Porter. Boots Cothran, and All-State guard Carol Sampson, the team exhibited a good season of basketball. I heir 10-1 seasonal record gave youthful Coach Peggy Cantrell a four-year record at Aiken High School of 39 wins. 12 losses, and a draw. 72Brian Murphy, Ri l Downing.

I he team, at lirst composed almost entirely of inexperienced swimmers, |uicldy shaped up during their summer practices. I nder the instructions of John I lart. a collegiate swimmer, the newly organized team gained much form and style. For the first time A. II. S. attended the State Swimmers’ Meet in Columbia, placing third in both the Boys’ and the Girls’ division. I he team received an overall second place rating. In the specialized section were Butch Emrich, who took first place in the fifty-yard free style, and Richard Caney. who took lirst place in the diving competition. BASEBALL I lie 1956 Hornet nine had a fair season, winning six out ol fifteen games. Backed by .335 hitting record ol Jerry C oker. the Hornets performed well in all games. In 1957 the Hornets will have few returnees and will, therefore, rely chiefly on young players. Pitchers J o h n I lumphries and Bobby Butler will be back to the diamond wars, along with in fielders Terry Joyner and Phil Orsini. Even though the 1957 personnel ol the A. H. S. baseball team will be young and inexperienced. they are expected to give a good accounting of themselves. Kncvling: John Underwood, 1 erry Joyner, Bot Spivey, Bol Butler.

HI-TIMES STAFF The aim of Hi Times was to inform I he A. H. S. students about school activities as a result of a broader and more effective coverage of news in their monthly newspaper. In addition to the usual articles on sports, social and curricular activities, bits of jest and mi rth were added to create spice. In the I hanksgiving. Christmas, and May Day issues of Hi-Times, stress was put on different topics that pertained to those particular days. I he last issue ol the year contained articles dealing mostly with tfie senior class. During the year Winthrop College sponsored the traditional Story-of-the-Month. contest in which some of the Hi Times staff members placed. The editorial staff, headed by Donna Lucas, put in many hours each month getting material and preparing it for publication. 02Donna Lucas, liditor I .ucy Sloan, fuiitor in ( hief Louise Coulson.
