HEADLINES THE " ANDREW LEWIS NEWS " Editor Brand prepares copy Member of Southern Interscholastic Press Association Published every Friday in the School Year by the Students of Andrew Lewis THE STAFF CABELL BRAND.Editor-in-Chief ALICE LINDSEY, MARTHA GOODWIN, PEGGY JERRELL, DAVID THORNTON.Assistant Editors HUNTER KENNARD.Circulation Manager Reportorial Staff ANN DENNIS JOSCELYN DUNLOP WALTER VAN GELDER ANN HOPE LYNCH CHARLES SWECKER ANN LINDSEY EMILY ANN RICE JNO. H. SNAPP.Faculty Advisor This year completes Volume Seven of the " Andrew Lewis News. " For the past several years the high school newspaper has been a member of the Southern Interscholastic Press Association, and each year has sent most of the members of the staff to the annual conference of the Association at Washington and Lee University. The high school page appears each Friday morning of the school year, except holidays, in the Salem " Times-Register, " through the courtesy of the pub¬ lisher. The " News " attempts to give the readers, both in and out of school, something of the many-sided activities of the Andrew Lewis students. Staff members, under the leadership of the Editor and Faculty Advisor, spend many hours after school working on copy, reading proof and doing other work associated with school journalism. The pleasure they derive from these tasks is their compensation for the laborious hours that have gone into this and previous volumes of the " News. "

BEHIND THE " THE PIONEER " IN THE MAKING Having received the welcome news that the " Pioneer " of ' 39 won the Class A Championship State Literary League Award, the staff of ' 40 went to work with a real incentive, not content to rest on " past laurels " but striving to raise the publication this year to an All-American National Scholastic rating. Faculty sponsor, Mrs. Turner, however, emphasized constantly to the members that although we are proud and happy when we win honors in the competitive journalistic events, our first aim is to produce an accurate, attractive book which pleases students and faculty. We have worked hard to achieve this. The staff members who attended our Southern Interscholastic Press Convention at Washington and Lee, learned all possible about building annuals the new way, in keeping with streamlining methods, etc., in vogue in the leading newspapers and magazines today. The ex¬ perience of making the " Pioneer " has been a valuable course to us who participated. It has taken us into the study of many fields, engraving, printing, advertising, etc. We have been alert to obtain all material which might enlighten as to layout, designing, etc., and the complete dummy was planned and drawn up by students. The scenes at the right show staff members studying the monthly issues of the " Scholastic Editor, " magazine for student journalists, formu¬ lating plans and executing them during their vacant periods in the Student Activities Room. Our faculty sponsor is particularly proud of the student work which goes into this book—the art work, designed and done by Van Gelaer, she considers superb for a high school student; Kennard ' s work as student photographer is worthy of commendation; dependable Bradshaw, business manager, has done a fine piece of work with the finances. Considerable curiosity and animation were aroused with the introduction of the " glamorous Lew Lewis " in the Staff Assembly Program in the fall. This resulted in many subscriptions for Circula¬ tion Managers Saul and Greene, who also managed their campaign adeptly. Editor Lindsey has had the usual prob¬ lems of any producer, but she has been admirably equal to the situation, managing some way to maintain her sweet disposition. The kindly cooperation of Mr. Kyle and members of the faculty have greatly lightened the burden. ' The only reward that we seek is your approval of the result. BALANCING THE BUDGET Business Manager Bradshaw checks advertising contracts, subscription funds and all sources of income while Producer Lindsey estimates, page by page, the cost of the dummy

THEY ARGUE PRO AND CON 1938 - 1939 " The Only Argument Available with an East Wind is to Put On Your Overcoat. " In the session of 1938-1939 the forensic teams of A. L. H. S. " sheathed their swords only for lack of argument. " Both groups defeated Lane, of Charlottes¬ ville, in the district elimination contest. In the state literary contest at the Uni¬ versity of Virginia, the affirmative team defeated the affirmative teams of Thomas Jefferson, of Richmond; Jeffer¬ son, of Roanoke; Maury, of Norfolk, and Woodrow Wilson, of Portsmouth, but lost in the finals to Maury, negative. 1939- 1940 To Find Quarrel with a Straw When Honor ' s at the Stake. Debating is, as usual, one of the major activities at Andrew Lewis. This year, emphasis has been placed on training a larger number of teams rather than concentrating on one team. All debaters have engaged in interscholastic con¬ tests and will, before the close of the season, " tilt at other windmills " in the neighboring schools. These " Redoubtable Ruperts " in the first team, named above, will represent the district at the University of Virginia May 10 and 11.
