Mrs. Fisher’s Freshman English Class helped add a note of Christmas cheer and brightness to her own Home Room 106. The drawing in the center is by Nancy Wood and Corrina Shepherd. Deane Wirt is the writer of the poem, “Santa’s Coming” and Yvonne Hailey takes credit for “Home for Christmas.” The beautiful picture which adorns the front board of Home Room 106 at Christmas time, was painted by Don Anselmo, a member of Mrs. Fisher’s Senior English Class. Artist Don, palette in hand, beams before his masterpiece. June Leffel and Louis Spradlin take honors for the creative writings. S’raium Patty Donaldson’s criti¬ cal eye wanders over her handiwork in decorating the halls for Christmas. Hard working Senior Y- Teens give our school the holiday atmosphere with their “hanging of the greens.” Amid the festive yuletide surroundings happy couples dance to their favorite melodies played by the able Aristocrats. The annual Christmas Dance is a seasonal highlight in the social life at Andrew Lewis. “Ring Out Wild Bells”—The melodious voices of the choir drift through the auditorium and bring a spirit of devotion and reverence to the joyous Christ¬ mas season. ■

Along with our many Christmas activities comes one that is looked forward to greatly by the students. The Senior Choir walks through the halls singing Christmas carols. Their voices echo through the class rooms, and stu- dents and teachers pause in their work to hear the joyous tidings. “You better watch out, you better not cry, Santa Claus is coming to town.” And Santa Claus does come for small children at a Christmas party given by the Sports Club. He hands out presents left and right to little children and spreads his Christmas cheer to happy hearts. Gtyriatmaa All is still and quiet as the holy voice of the angel speaks to the trembling shepherds. The yearly Christ¬ mas Assembly is presented by the Latin Club in the form of a play entitled “The Saturnalia.” The beauti¬ ful Christmas story is awakened anew in the hearts of the listeners. Andrew Lewis High School has never failed the Basket Bureau. Every year the students give gener¬ ously so that someone else may have a happier Christ¬ mas. Here the baskets are lined up to be presented to Mr. Charley Turner, who distributes them. This is one of many examples of “peace on earth, good will toward men.”

Town Government Day Two of our business students, Martha Goodwin and Joan Farmer make places for themselves in the Clerk’s office during “Town Day.” Mr. Shelor, Town Clerk, stays close by to observe their work. Charles Gwaltney, Fire Chief and Jack Flale, Assistant Fire Chief, with Mr. Ballard, Salem Fire Chief, pause a moment for a cameraman before they end their dav as firemen. Don Barker and Jimmy Candler have an interest in engineering, so their day with the Town Government is spent with Mr. T. A. Spiggle, Town Engineer. Barker is Town Engineer and Chandler is his assistant. The “big wheels” for a day pose in the office of the Town Manager. Left to right are Betty Mc¬ Cormack, the first girl ever elected to the town council from Andrew Lewis; John Gardner, As¬ sistant Town Mana¬ ger; Jimmy Bean, Vice Mayor; Billy Brogan, Mayor; and Don Anselmo, Town Manager. M rs. Hurt, Treas¬ urer, looks on to see that Georgenia Draper and David Vaughn are taking good care of our town’s money in¬ terests as they learn how taxes and reve¬ nues are spent to run the town. Two employees of the Water De¬ partment come into view just as the cameras click to get a picture of Calvin Rhorbaugh, Superintendent of the Water Department for a day, along with his assistant, Harry Stanley. These boys spent their day as town officials with Superintendent of the Light Department, Mr. J. E. Yates. Johnny Ferguson is Town Attorney, Wayne Smith is Assistant Light Director, and Bill Hurt, Light Director. Mrs. Smith is discussing the Town Day project with some of the par¬ ticipants after they end their day as town officials.
