Copy ■ Vol. VII No. 19 Salem, Virginia May 23, 1964 NEW LOOK-NEW SPONSOR Bi-Weekly Hits Lewis The first bi-weekly news¬ paper at Andrew Lewis comes off the press this year a third larger and with a new look. The Spokesman goes to a bold masthead and a five- column edition to provide this year ' s big change in format. The return to newsprint and the paper’s overall increase in size make it, as one stu¬ dent said, “look like a real newspaper!” These cljanges ar under the direction of Mrs. Linnae Hedgbeth, the new sponsor. Photo Trio Danny Bayse and his Rollei- flex give full picture coverage of school events, while Steve Chapman (below, left) assists. These boys develop and print the shots at home (The Spokes¬ man owns no photo equipment.) Jerry Mills, chosen last spring by Mrs. Chapman, is editor of this year’s A.L. Spokesman. She has been a reporter for this paper for three years and is the first Junior ever chosen to the editorship. Helping Jerry is Myra Boone, assistant editor, who has been on the Spokesman staff for four years. Myra deals chiefly with the editorial page, but also re¬ views exchange papers for new ideas. In her hard, but rewarding job, Jerry finds deadlines are a constant worry. Her calendar of up-coming events reminds the staff of assign¬ ments to be completed for each edition. She checks the finished articles and pictures against her lay-out sheets, then takes them to the printer by the Wednesday deadline for setting type. Scoops meet a Thursday noon deadline and Jerry makes up the pages at The Times-Register office that day by a later what? . . . deadline!

Stars Edit Page Butch Morris, Kathy Jones Experience gained by Kathy Jones and Butch Morris on the business staff in previous year has paid off. Ad¬ vertising is up this year, de¬ spite the 50% increase in cost to subsidize the Spokesman ' s jump from 10 to 18 issues. Linda Poff led in sales with her six-inch ad from Kemp’s Jewelers for nine consecutive issues. Feature and the major news articles are composed by a single staff. Camille Thomas displays a keen flair for both feature and news articles, while Mercede Perez and Donna King handle news items. Columns by AFS student, Floris Gretzmacher, on sub¬ jects pertaining to his native Austria add flavor to the Spokesman. Steve Marshall provides an occasional column under his own by-line, as do George Givens and Lewis principal, Mr. A. D. Hurt. Regular coverage of the various department and club activities at school allows this staff to keep the student body informed of the latest happen¬ ings. Opinion pools, fashion columns and cartoons ( by Lennie Hayes and Lynn Wim- mer ) draw much comment from students and add spice to the more factual reading. Douglas Sutton. SEATED: in bits about the newest class at school. Linda Barnette contacts clubs for their ac¬ tivities and runs an occasional interview, while Teresa Yates covers special assignments and doubles as a typist. Roger Cook. Susan Payne, and Susan Miller are re¬ porter s-at-large. Stretch Beach, co-captain of the Wolverine Varsity basketball team, shows equal ease at lay-outs for the sports page of The Spokes¬ man as he does for lay-ups on the court. Stretch is re¬ sponsible for all boys’ sports articles, while Bonnie Vaug¬ han writes up the girls’ events. They are pictured at the gym door. Bonnie is an avid sports fan and plays a regular posi¬ tion on the girls’ basketball squad. She is a powder-puff football star and also helps the business staff of the school paper. In addition to the sports page, Beach handles the “S.C.A. Corner” and turns up with an occasional editor¬ ial. “A keen sense of pertinency projects through his articles that some experienced writers seldom match,” says Mrs. Hedgbeth, his journalism teacher. “He is at his best when pressured by time — his copy barely manahes to hit the editor’s deadline, but he hasn’t missed one yet,” she says. Beach calls “interference” on ads editor, Kathy Jones, m £ 4 j ' ' ■ STANDING: Mercedes Perez, Donna King. SEATED: Floris Gretzmacher, Camille Thomas. Bonnie Vaughan, Stretch Beach when she runs advertising deep into the sports page. Her “WHO do you think pays for the paper?” blocks the offense and he settles for a jump-section on page 4.
