The Student Council is an organization through which students may work on problems and projects which are of immediate concern to them. It acts as a clearing house where they may present their ideas on all matters concerning the student body. The idea behind this organization is to .help consolidate school opinion along lines effective to students. The Student Participation Organization was formed ten years ago and has progressed successfully since. Although the present or- ganization is not known by this name, it operates under the same constitution with the same purpose. Most of us think of it as the Student Council or Students ' Government Program. The Student Council is composed of four major officers elected by the student body and a representative elected from each home room. The advisor this year is Mr. McFadyen, the principal. Some of the major activities of the Council this year have been: the forming and sponsorship of various clubs, the planning of assem- bly programs, aiding in intramural tournaments, serving as host to school guests, sponsoring home room devotionals, and carrying on various civic and school campaigns. It is the aim of the Student Council this year to bring students into a closer relationship with their school.

OFFICEBS President Jerry Lowder Secretary Marion Sifford Sponsor Miss Jean Lentz The local chapter of the National Honor Society was organized in Albemarle High School in 1938. Since that time many students have worked and served to attain the high qualifications demanded for membership. Before a student can become a member of this national organi- zation, he must maintain a high scholastic record. This record, how- ever, only makes him eligible for membership. Next he is judged by his teachers and fellow students on the basis of service, leadership, and character. New members are inducted twice a year— in a fall tapping limit- ed to Seniors, and a spring tapping open to Juniors. Since the names of those to be tapped are kept secret until the actual tapping in as- sembly, excitement runs very high among all the students. Membership in the local organization is a sought-after honor, but it involves many obligations as well as offering social and recreation- al opportunities. Various projects are sponsored from time to time. Each spring a tea is held for students making the semester honor roll. The local group feels that this is a wonderful opportunity to encour- age students with high scholastic standing to serve, to lead, to be- come good citizens. It is hoped that students honored by membership in the National Honor Society will be inspired to continue the worthy beginning they have made in high school by continuing to grow into world citizens of tomorrow. 43 First row: Melvin Carpenter, Sue Herrin, Hanky Skidmore, Marion Sifford, Mary Anna Peck, Jeannine Boysworth, Sally Beaver, Frances Gaddy, Isabel Outlaw, Bill Sanders.

Under the direction of Paul B. Fry, they participated in a joint Christinas Concert with Harding High School chorus at Albemarle, the Piedmont district contest, the Festival chorus at Greensboro, a return joint engagement with Harding High in the spring, a Spring Concert, and numerous church and civic appearances.

This year it partici- pated in several Christmas Parades throughout the state, among them the Charlotte Christmas Festival, one of the largest in the southeast. The Band also entered the Piedmont District con- test this spring.

This year seventy upper classmen joined this organization, thus making them eligible for open try-outs before any play was cast. Characters for all plays are chosen on the basis of talent alone; however, die production staff is selected on a voluntary basis. Each year the Black Masque presents a minimum of three or maximum of five one-act plays for assembly and public programs. The spring production, which is given by the Senior members of the group, is a three-act play. This year the Black Masque presented the following one-act plays: " Grapes for Dinner " , " We ' re Dieting, " " Mr. Lincoln ' s Whiskers, " " How to Propose. " The season ' s climax was the presentation of George Washington Slept Here. It is the hope of the organization that they may entertain; however, they also strive to give the members a greater appreciation of " good theater. " Director of the Black Masque this year is Mrs. D. H. Peiffer. DRAMATICS CLUB OFFICERS Bill Grigg, Mary Elder, Adelia Mauldin, Frances ' Gaddy, Page Huckabee, Dwight Cranford 49 MONOGRAM CLUB Front row.

OFFICEBS Frank Lowder President Don Kirkpatrick Vice President Sara Skidmore Secretary Jimmy Napier Treasurer The Albemarle High School Monogram Club was organized in the fall of 1947. Membership in the club is limited to those boys and girls who win letters in the athletic program of the high school. The club has as its main objectives the promotion of friendship, exemplifi- cation of good sportsmanship, fostering the privileges and responsi- bilities that come with high school athletic participation, and the realization that the greatest heritage of youth is the right to play. The main project of the Monogram Club is to raise funds to buy monogram sweaters for each member of the club. These funds are raised through various projects promoted by the club during the school year. The club has adopted as the official monogram of Albemarle High School a navy sweater with white chenille letter with a sleeve stripe for each year of competition. 50 BOOSTERS ' CLUB i In 1947 the Boosters ' Club was reorganized under the sponsor- ship of Miss Mary Edna Matheson, and during its two years of opera- tion it has proved itself an almost indispensible part of school life. The club is open to all students, and for this reason its member- ship is larger than that of other organizations around school. Nothing is required of the members except an active part in activities sponsor- ed by the club and a pledge to support the various teams in sports participation. The main purpose of the club is to boost school spirit and keep students ' interest high in extra-curricular activities. The activities of the Boosters are many. They have sponsored many successful dances, pep rallies, stunt programs, assembly pro- grams, etc. Also the Boosters are responsible for choosing cheer leaders and making up the cheering section at football and basketball games. Besides these activities, the Boosters also help buy sweaters for football players with proceeds from various functions. Although the club has no special program or meeting time, it has won a reputation not only for getting things done, but for getting things they undertake done successfully.

HIGHLIGHTS OF ' 48 SEASON The Albemarle Bulldogs completed a very successful season in 1948 with a record of six victories, one tie, and three defeats. The season was featured by the outstanding line play of Ross, Lowder, Patterson, Youngblood, Stoker, Mullis, Napier, Miller, and Whitley. The backfield was led by Kluttz, Patterson, Holt, Carpenter, and Kirkpatrick. Albemarle scored a total of 152 points for the 10 games played. All opponents scored a total of 77 points against the local eleven. The Bulldogs opened the season by losing to Barium Springs, 15 to 7. Albe- marle got its only TD on a 39-yard pass from Carpenter to Kirkpatrick. Albemarle downed CCUNC next by 8 to 0, with Napier scoring on a pass.

The Yellow Jackets won in the last 30 seconds on a pass play. Troy came to the local stadium on October 29, and probably wished they had never made the trip. The Bulldogs pounded the visitors 46 to 0. The big homecoming clash with Concord took place on November 5 and Albemarle delighted the old grads by downing the Spiders 13-7. The game was featured by excellent line play on the part of Boss, Patterson, Youngblood, Low- der, and Stoker and an 85-yard run by Kluttz in the closing minutes for the win- ning touchdown. The Bulldogs ended their season by spanking Asheboro 20-8. Ten Albemarle seniors ended their career, including Don Mnllis, Bob Stoker, Frank Lowder, Charles Boss, Don Kirkpatrick, Bob Patterson, Jim Miller, Melvin Carpenter, and John Haire.
