Associate Editor Rcportorial Staff Peggy Jerrell Betty Jean Pace Evelyn Taylor Smith Charles Swecker Dorothy Thompson Circulation Managers Charles Whitmore Lougenia Woolridge Jno. H. Snapp . Faculty Adviser Johnston and Thornton Friday morning during the home room periods at Andrew Lewis is usually more serene than the ordinary, for it is among those first few minutes before the storm, that all eyes are turned toward the latest news of the day. For eight years, the student publication, Andrew Lewis News, has related stories of life at Roanoke County’s largest high school, and no doubt will continue to do so for many years to come. To incite an interest in the field of journalism among the locality’s future citizens, The Times-Register , a weekly newspaper in Roanoke County, has donated a full page each year since 1932 for the Andrew Lewis News. Ever since that first issue eight years ago, Mr. Jno. H. Snapp, instructor in Senior English at Lewis, has faithfully fulfilled the duties of faculty adviser and has carefully supervised every edition of the paper. Each year it becomes the task of Mr. Snapp to select what he thinks is a competent, reliable staff to edit and write the newspaper during the school term. As the 1940-41 editor-in-chief, Edith Marie Johnston has very capably filled that position. Having but a small amount of experience but a great capacity for learning quickly, Edith Marie has become a talented high school senior journalist. With their jobs mainly as news hounds the Andrew Lewis Neves staff consists of David Thornton, associate editor; Peggy Jerrell, Evelyn Taylor Smith, Betty Jean Pace, Charles Swecker and Dorothy Thompson. These are the ones who are attempting to develop a “nose for news” and whose job it is to turn out the ever-needed copy. However, the staff would not be complete without the names of the circulation managers. Charles Whitmore and Lougenia Woolridge have held the position of seeing that the subscription campaign is carried out and then that those subscribers are insured of getting their paper each week on time. Items that are included in the Andrew Lewis News from time to time vary from editorial to the always popular gossip column, namely, “Et Cetera.” All happenings at Andrew Lewis, such as sports, assemblies, dramatics, public speaking, debating, musical events and all of the varied clubs, are nearly always given full write-ups, as are the many other items of interest arising at the school. The Andrew Lewis News is a member of the Southern Interscholastic Press Association, and last fall sent its editor as a delegate to the annual convention at Washington and Lee University in Lexington.

Turner, teacher of English. The staff is composed of twenty-five students representing the four classes. Senior members occupy the position as heads of the depart¬ ments, while underclassmen assist and learn the work. Any student of high scholastic standing, who is interested in journalism, is eligible to the staff. The work is conducted as an extra¬ curricular project in journalism, as the school does not have a Journalism Department. The book is planned and edited by students, with the cooperation of the Visual Education Department. All photographic work, except senior portraits, is done by Student Photographer Bob Carlton. Much hard work goes into the production of the book, but the students who engage in it feel that the training and experience obtained is as valuable as that gained in any class which they attend. The staff is exceedingly proud of Helen Chewning, ’39 editor, who edits the National Park College ’41 yearbook and Alice Lindsey, editor of the ’40 Pioneer, who drew up the “dummy” for the ’41 National Cathedral School at Mount St. Alban. { 30 )•

Hatiosial fyoAe.H ' iia Jleax ue The Andrew Lewis Chapter of the National Forensic League was formed this year under the capable leadership of Mr. George Thompson, our new Debate Coach, who replaced Mrs. Ethyl Shockey. Mrs. Shockey left our faculty last year, after making a very success¬ ful record at Andrew Lewis, to take a position with the National Youth Administration. The debate teams attended the National Forensic League district meet at Bristol, Va. The teams, as they stood at this meet, were: Affirmative, first speaker and rebuttal, Charles Whitmore; second speaker and cross-examiner, David Thornton; negative, first speaker and rebuttal, Broaddus Chewning; second speaker and cross-examiner, Tom Weir. The affirmative met and defeated teams from the following places: Elizabethton, Tenn., Princeton, W. Va., and Orlando, Fla. The negative met and were defeated by the following: Kingsport, Tenn., Johnson City, Tenn., and Bristol, Va. The negative defeats eliminated the school. The teams, as they stood for competition in the Virginia Literary League, were: Affirmative, Charles Whitmore, first speaker; David Thornton, cross-examiner, and Alan Walrond, rebuttal. Negative, Broaddus Chewning, first speaker; Flarry Johnson, cross¬ examiner, and Tom Weir, rebuttal. Andrew Lewis met Jefferson for the district Virginia Literary League contest on April 19. As result of this contest, the Andrew Lewis affirmative and the Jefferson nega¬ tive will enter the state tournament at Charlottesville. The debate question for the year was, “Resolved: That the Power of the Federal Government Should be Increased.” The question for next year will pertain to compulsory military training. The purpose of forensic work is to enable the stu¬ dents, through practice, to present their ideas and plans intelligently and clearly to other people. When this is achieved the student has a valuable asset which nothing else can replace. N. F. L.
