Winter Old Mother Nature sings a quiet lullaby as the weary world rests beneath a blanket of soft white snow. The earth takes on a chilled somber look and shadows grow long as winter walks with icy steps about the land. The wind shrieks around corners and trees bend low under the weight of ice and snow as their branches creak in protest. Activity seems to cease and all the world rests, preparing itself for the coming season of growth, and says with Milton “Come, pensive Nun, devout and pure.” The cold weather makes us grateful for our warm homes. The open fireplace takes on an added beauty as the flames crackle over the logs; the popping of corn accents the sound. We enjoy long evenings by the fire where, with a good book, we may travel into lands beyond our fondest dream. “ Some still , removed place will fit , where glowing embers through the room teach light to counterfeit a gloom” Our books are temporarily forgotten at Andrew Lewis, however, as we enter the busy Christmas season, and the “pensive Nun” is banished for awhile; again, there is activity. There is much work to be done before the Christmas dance, before the choir assembly, and before the Christmas baskets are ready for delivery. Although there never seems time enough for it all; nevertheless, it is accomplished. Memories of the Christmas dance will long remain. For a single night the gym sparkles with stars and mistletoe is king. The last day arrives and our hearts are thrilled as we hear the strains of “ Joy to the World” floating down the hall. We pause and give thanks for our great fortune as we share in giving to others through our Christmas baskets. Vacation arrives and for two weeks the halls of Andrew Lewis are as silent as the snow outside. With the coming of a New Year they are re-awakened. Studies take on a serious air for the dark shadow of tests is rising in our paths. The midnight oil is burned in many lamps in an effort to “cram” a semester’s work into a single night. The lights burn late in the gymnasium, too, as our Wolverines fight for glory on the basketball court. The dark halls echo the cries of “We’re with you team!” The blue and white prove with each game that they can lead us to victory. Gradually the winter days lengthen; the earth begins to put on a new green dress in place of the grey, brown, and black tones that have clothed it through the cold months. Winter disappears, leaving memories of happy, busy times. •Cf 86 }[ •

Outstanding honors have been brought to Andrew Lewis by the Future Farmers of America this year. Here we see some of our F. F. A. boys returning home after attending the National Future Farmers of America Convention in Kansas City, Missouri. Don Oatey, president, represented the Andrew Lewis Chapter in the convention. Charles Damewood won the Virginia Forestry Contest. Wesley Grisso won the American Farmer’s Degree. This is the highest degree in the organization and only one boy in each thousand receives this degree. Mr. Peters was given the Honorary American Farmer’s Degree for his out¬ standing work in the local chapter. The Andrew Lewis Chapter “placed gold” in the National Contest for their accomplishments. The 4 H Club of Andrew Lewis has al¬ ways produced many fine leaders. Morris Hancock and Clayton Tinned won first prize in the State Poultry Demonstration. Their efforts won them a trip to Syracuse, New York. Jody Walker took first place in the State 4-H Public Speaking Contest with her speech “Speak up for Freedom.” Jack Goode was one of the four Virginia district winners at the Farm and Home Congress which was held in Richmond. Jody and Jack are both All-Stars, the highest honor a Virginia 4-H member can achieve. Andrew Lewis has found its place on the map both in the State and in the nation. Donny Williams was one of the two Virginia F. F. A. members who took part in the 1952 National F. F. A. Band which met in Kansas City last summer. Alonza Philpott, out¬ standing tackle for the Wolverines, won a position as state reserve guard this year. Congratulations to both of these boys for their fine work! i4$ »» ♦ m The girls of Andrew Lewis have taken their share of honors, too.
