Leading By Service BETA CLUB • • Ahead of all high school students lies the mountain of life, a high, forbidding barrier, guarding the plateau of success and achievement that everyone hopes to reach someday. Who will be able to climb this barrier, to fight their way up the cliffs and over the crags to the land at the top? Only the bravest, the most determined, the best trained climbers like those prepared by the Beta Club. The Andrew Lewis chap¬ ter of the Beta Club, a branch of the national hon¬ or society by that name, has had a remarkably ac¬ tive year filled with such interesting activities as sponsoring a hop, selling football programs, and highlighted by the candle¬ light initiation ceremony and the state convention in Roanoke. DOT ELLER, VICE PRESIDENT, MARTHA MORRIS, RECORDING SECRETARY; MRS. WATERS, ACT¬ ING SPONSOR; PAUL HENSON, TREASURER; LIZZIE BALLARD, CORRESPONDING SECRETARY, and DEANNA DOYLE, PRESIDENT, are taking part in the candlelight in¬ duction service of new members. Martha Jane Hall, Marie Fralin, Nancy Caudill, Yvonne Hailey, Jackie Lilly, Pat Deyerle, Pat Harris, Ed Hill, Lucy Bette Clem, Peggy Gene Senter, and Shelby Lipps are off to attend the convention at Hotel Roanoke which was one of the high lights of the year. About nine hundred delegates from the chapters in Virginia and West Virginia attended. The local chapter sent four delegates and about thirty members attended. The Andrew Lewis Chapter had a musical skit at the convention and assisted with the registrations and entertainment. Jane Henson, Rowena Holliday, Marie Harter, Susan Hack- man, Barbara Mills, Peggy Smiley, Betty Lou Vinyard, Cynthia Butts, Carolyn Greiner, Sam Harvey, Jimmy Gore, and Buddy Eakin entertained the delegates at the convention with a musical skit.

Passing On The Torch Of Life “Tradere lampada vitae,” to carry on the torch o± life, is the motto of the Sodalitas Latina. As the Provincials rest, the Patricians labor and the Plebeians struggle, the Latin Club endeavors to uphold this motto. However, it is not all work and no play. The year began with the annual business meeting in October. The social highlight of the year was the faculty picnic at Long- wood, where both students and teachers enjoyed themselves. For the first program of the year the members of the Virgil Class gathered their wits and presented a play, “The Football Rally on Mount Olympus.” The other classes alternated and presented their programs at separate meetings. Each year, the members of the Latin Club present the Easter Pageant, which portrays scenes from the life of Christ and the Crucifixion. The part of Christ is portrayed by the senior whom the club chooses. The May Dance, which is the first spring dance of the school year, was sponsored by the Latin Club. The Queen and at¬ tendants of the May Court were also chosen by the members of the Latin Club. These are the highlights of the Sodalitas activities for the year 1954-55, which has indeed been a prosperous year. The Off-Beats and members of Miss Cook ' s Virgil Class take a bow after entertaininq the Latin Club. To the rhythm of the Off-Beats and the " Rah! Rah! " of the cheerleaders. Dot Eller, Rowena Holliday, Deanna Doyle, and Jackie Lilly perform a Snake Dance during a skit presented by the Virqil Class.
