Although delayed in the fall with the extra
responsibility of putting out football programs
for local high school games, the Pointer staff
finally got down to 'fbusinessn and, fairly re-
gularly after that on every other Thursday
evening, presses at the Creative Print Shop began
to roll off copies of the paper.
On the editorial staff, which met during last
period every afternoon, editor-in-chief Betty Jo
Ring could be found handling page one assign-
ments While Russell Blackburn and Pat Mellonas
collaborated on the sports page. Feature page
responsibilities shifted from feature editor Nancy
Greer to sophomore Nlarilyn Robinette and back
several times. Fourth page was directed by two
valuable H.P.H.S. newcomers and associate
editors, Audrey Smith and Dick Davenport.
Probably the most indispensible staff members
were senior editors Joyce Linthicum, newsg Bob-

for the Pointer and these who worked so dili-

'f'l'o be or not to be?" That was the question
put before the student body early in the school
year as to whether or not The Pointer, newspaper
publication of H.P.H.S., was to continue in '46-
'47. Also casting shadows on the situation were
the lack of a faculty adviser and the resignation
of Editor Caroline Arden. But, with the position
of faculty adviser dropped in the very capable
bands of Miss Muriel Bulwinkle, the editorship
filled by an efficient junior, Betty Jo Ring, and
with a vote of confidence from the student body
at a rally, the Pointer survived.

Don Huber, student body president, through
his work on the council, made a fitling finish to
an outstanding high school career.
lVorking together in close harmony, the Upper
and the Lower Houses of the Student Council
have, during the past year, undertaken and
brought to completion a number of joint projects.
Of these, the first was the sale of badges and
pennants at the home football games.
Financially, however, the most successful pro-
ject undertaken was the sponsoring of a series of
assembly programs by out-of-town companies.
The Social Standards Conference is an annual
event which is always anticipated with enthusiasm
by the entire school.
Early last fall, delegates from the two houses
enjoyed a trip to Asheville, where they attended
the North Carolina State Student Council Con-
gress. Later on, delegates from the local group
were present at meetings both in Greensboro and
in High Point. ln February, the Council was
host to the Central District Conference, which
was attended by representatives from a number of
Under the leadership of Don Huber, president,
and Joanne Sechrest, vice-president, and with the
assistance of Bliss Bain Johnson, sponsor of the
Upper House, the council has played an important
part in the life of H.P.H.S.
In the carrying out of all projects, the council
leaders have been ably assisted by the following
representatives: Rida Ingram and Ralston Welch,
seniors, Dolly Albright and Nick Halipilias,
juniors, Mary Ella Coffey and Heywood Wash-
burn, sophomoresg and Barbara Carter and Ha-
rold Gibhardt, freshmen.
We feel that our Student Council is fully re-
presentative of the school, in that it comes into
contact with more students than does any other
organization in senior high.
The Upper House of the council planned and directed many student activities. Members are,
left to right: Ralston Welch, Dolly Albright, Miss Bain johnson, adviser, Heywood Washburn,
Nick Halipialias, Mary Ella Coffee, Don Huber, Harold Gibhart, and Joanne Sechrest. Rida
Ingram and Barbara Carter were absent when the picture was made.
