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- by Lindsey, managing, Helen Rigby, assistant feature editor, Ted Hodge, photographerg and G if WU ly G 'f V glL 11-xEPorNmR 7 9 !1! f X3 iffiihi 'mu-msg M? 43 "' 1 ' 'wt Peggy Davis, business manager, races through files for exchange copy. Claude lXIcKinney, cartoonist. Brainstorms from llazie Strickland, Barbara Smart, June Smith, Rodney Borum, and Bobby llyers kept things humming. Comprising a bustling business staff were managers Peggy Davis, Ellen Russell, Doris Nance, and assistants Barbara Lowe, Betty Jo Harris, Nancy Oglesby, Gladys Linthicun, and lmogene Haney. Faculty adviser was Bliss lwade- line Brooks. All in all, '46-'47 was an unforgettable year for the Pointer and these who worked so dili- gently with it. We enjoyed it!

Betty jo Ring, editor-in-chief, racks her brain over the front page make-up. The Pointer '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.

Student Government 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 other schools. 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. i 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. '4f538Ew
