This year eighty upperclassmen joined this organization, thus making them eligible for open try-outs before any play was cast. This year the Black Masque presented for assembly three one-act plays: “If Men Played Cards As Women Do,” “Alleghany Primary,” and “Boomerang.” The season’s climax was the presentation of “One Foot in Heaven” pre- sented by the Senior members. 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.” “If Men Played Cards As Women Do” “Alleghany Primary’ ‘George Washington Slept Here’ 50 MONOGRAM CLUB 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, exemplification of good sportsmanship, fostering the privileges and responsibilities that come with high school athletic participa- tion, 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. OFFICERS Bob Youngblood Charles Whitley Perlene Hartsell President Vice President Secretary and Treasurer 51 BOOSTERS CLUB Under the sponsorship of Miss Mary Edna Matheson, tire Boosters Club functions as the most active and the most popular of the clubs of Albemarle High School. During its third year of operation, it has continued the many activities for which it is well-known in the school and community, such as sponsoring home- coming activities, dances, assembly programs, choosing cheerleaders, and various other successful works. The main purpose of the Club is to boost school spirit and keep students’ interest high in extra-curricular activities. Because the club is open to all students and its requirements are few, its membership is larger than that of any other organization around school. That its members take an active part in activities sponsored by the club, and that they pledge to support the various teams in sport participation are the only requirements. As an outlet of school spirit in A. H. S., the Boosters Club has become a vital part of school life. OFFICERS Bob Youngblood President Cranford Hathcock Vice President Carroll Davis Secretary John Helms Treasurer Jane Little and Mary Helen Cooper Dance Chairmen Miss Mary Edna Matheson 52 Sponsor DIVERSIFIED OCCUPATIONS The Diversified Occupations Club is composed of thirty-six eleventh and twelfth grade students training for a specific occupation in school. The vocational students attend school in the mornings and work in the afternoons. This enables a student to find his vocation while attending school, and at the same time serve his apprenticeship in his chosen trade.
