Examine a hand—any hand. It may be large and brawny; it may be small and dainty. The size of the hand does not matter. It remains a wondrously constructed, marvelously engineered mechanism.
Rough and untrained, the hand can do little. But train it, guide it; it becomes the instrument by which man’s thoughts arc trained into deeds. You will be led through this, the 1961 HORNET, with the hands of Aiken High. The hands that teach and guide, the hands that play, the hands that coach, and the hands that work.(Administration
Together the hands of teachers and students work to try to make Aiken High one of the best schools in the state. Under the energetic leadership of Mr. Willis and Mr. Rutland, Aiken High continues to produce well-trained students, ready to seek jobs or continue their education in colleges.
Outside school hours, the teachers work with classes, individuals or organizations. Thus student-teacher relations are improved and give the students a chance to feel that they have an active part in trying to improve their school.AIKEN ATTENDANCE AREA NO. 1 BOARD

A record on the turntable, a hand on the needle-arm, and one phase of the varied student-life activities begins to whirl. Sounds and teenagers seem to go hand in hand—sounds of laughter at an amusing yam; sounds of dancing to a lovely tune; sounds of pencils as they scratch answers on test papers; sounds of sadness as each year ends.
These are some of the sounds that record the student life of Aiken High from September to June. These are some of the sounds that help to kindle true friendships and sparkle lasting memories.Student Xtft

Man, as a player or spectator, seems to find satisfaction in well-played athletic events. It is this aim that Hornet sportsmen work to coordinate the body and mind, sports and honesty, competition and fairness.hirst row: N. W. Stone, Dun Wakefield , Jim Barber .

As the 1960 Hornets started off the season, nothing seemed in their favor. Coach Bell said in many interviews that he did not have the depth or the material needed. But he started working. With the help and the spirit, hustle, and teamwork of the players, Aiken High had the first winning season in eight years.
The Hornets began the season slowly, tying Aquinas of Augusta, 0-0. The defensive team was sharp, but the offensive squad seemed not to get rolling.
The second game, September 9, was the best spirited game of the season—Aiken 13, L.B.C. 6. Everyone played a fine game and hit harder than in any other game.
After a week’s rest Aiken faced Graniteville who had not been beaten or even scored upon. Aiken’s spirit came through with a 12 to 0 victory.
Next in line was Lancaster. Aiken showed them what a passing game really was by defeating them 25-0.
Next Brookland-Cayce sneaked by with a 14-0 win.
Many Aiken fans followed the Hornets to Newberry, and the trip was well rewarded as Aiken triumphed 39-6.
Aiken entered the Sumter game with high spirits, and came out with a 26-13 Homecoming victory.
Greenwood was a tough group and the powerful Emeralds were too much for the Hornets. The score—29-0.
In the Dreher game Aiken played well, but a penalty brought back one Hornet touchdown, contributing to the 14-7 loss.
The first half Aiken held North Augusta to a 7-7 tie. But in the second half N. A. pulled ahead 21-7.

The J-V’s played for experience this year. Teamed with the Juniors on the Varsity, they will comprise Aiken’s team next year.
Although the team won only four of their 10 games, they usually lost by a small margin. The teams they beat were A. C. Flora, Graniteville, North Augusta, and Brookland Cayce.Glen DeHart Bob Davis Greg Roberts
The Hornets were led by a sextet of seniors to a 15-9 season. Each of the men contributed to the Hornet cause with his own particular basketball talent.
Alex Beasley was the steadying influence for the Hornets with a cool head in tough situations. He held Glen Gaskin, Graniteville’s high-scoring star, to a mere twenty-seven points in two games.
Aiken’s front court men, 67” Greg Roberts, 6’3” Bob Davis, and 6’2” Billy Franklin were responsible for much of the team's scoring, as each of them averaged in the double figures.
Roberts and Davis led the club in rebounding and Franklin was the most outstanding shooter. All three had many good nights; Franklin scored 21 against Brookland-Cayce here, Roberts scored 21 in the first Graniteville game, and Davis tallied 19 against Florence in the state tournament.
Danny Mills and Glen DeHart were members, along with Beasley, of the Aiken guard corps. Mills started the year slowly, doing most of the work on defense, but mid-way througn the season his shots began hitting and he gained confidence on the floor. His strength was driving, and he scored many of his points on fancy lay-ups.
DeHart showed himself in the first half of the year as a great dribbler, ball-handler in general, and plav-maker. In the latter part of the season he was hampered by the recurrence of an old ailment, but until that time he led the Hornets in assists.
Glen DeHart, dribbling ace, exhibits his special talent.

“. . . and lovely is the rose.” Wordsworth’s sentiments might be changed to "also lovely is the rose” at Aiken High. For the hands that gently hold and care for the rose have cared for paintings of art, strains of music, myriads of evergreens and loveliness of the body. The students of Aiken High select the most outstanding beauties and they are presented in formal attire to enhance the beauty of the school.presenting

The fingerwork involved in playing a flute is comparable to the students involved in school activities. One finger without the help of others does not play a well-coordinated melody, nor does one student without the help of others compose a well coordinated club, just as each finger contributes its talents to the hand, so each student contributes his talents to the school. The activities at Aiken High are varied; it is the philosophy of the school that each student be allowed to participate actively and display his abilities in any activity of his choice.OFFICERS

And of course the hands that strive— juniors striving to be seniors, freshmen to be juniors—with one common goal: preparedness. The hand that leafs pages and the hand that writes is the hand that seeks knowledge, but not without pausing to plan. It is during these pauses that Aiken High underclassmen find time to particiate in class projects. For juniors, the junior play, the junior dance and the Junior-Senior. For freshmen, the freshmen dance. These are the activities that unite work and play, loyalty and spirit.CLASS OFFICERS
Standing: Richard Byrd, president; Kay Coward, vice-president. Seated: Sherry Brewer, secretary; Billy Winter, treasurer.
112The Junior Class has been very busy this year. They sponsored the annual Homecoming Dance, they sold peanuts at football games and they worked the refreshment stands. These were some ways they made money for the Junior-Senior.
The Junior Play, Man Overboard, was presented in March, with Mrs. Wood as director.
Basketball was a main interest of the Junior Class. After last year’s intramural victory they fought hard to stay champs.
Everyone will remember the Junior-Senior-espe-cially the fine music and the beautiful decorations.

Throughout life the hand plays an important role. Whether it is used in the building of a home, a school, or a nation, it is the hand which must lay the foundations of strength and raise the walls of unity.
But it is not possible to divorce the hand from the rest of the body. The body is a union of coordinate parts; no part is a subordinate. The counterpart, then, to the skilled, trained hand is a keen, disciplined mind, a mind which guides and directs the hand in its varied, complex movements.
A salute to the hands of Aiken High. And to Aiken High-an institution that is dedicated to the wedding of the human mind and the hand.
