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. "
