THE SCHOOL SONG
WHEN at last the class had met the conditions imposed by Miss
Peele for getting out the 1927 WINOCA, the newly-appointed staff
began to consider what they could do in the way of a permanent
contribution that would be worthy to be remembered and recorded in their
own volume of the year book.
About that time the Carolina Glee Club came to Wilson, and their
beautiful rendering of "Hark the Sound of Tar Heel Voices" gave the

heart of the student body as "Hark the Sound of Tar Heel Voices" thrills
the university alumnus or as the national anthem thrills the patriotic

of our faculty, and with influential alumni and, encouraged by the interest
of all these, opened to students and alumni of the high school a competition
for a school song, asking if possible that both air and words should be
Three original musical compositions were submitted: two by Roberta
Hayes and Margaret Richardson and one by Harry Spiers. A committee
composed of Mrs. W. S. Harris, Mrs. Ashe ,Hines, and Mrs. C. L. Coon
judged the compositions and selected one of those submitted by Roberta
Hayes and Margaret Richardson. Mrs. Harris kindly offered to revise
the winning composition in order to work out a more pleasing harmony
than the girls' knowledge of music had enabled them to secure.
A second competition was now opened to secure suitable and worthy
words for the school song.
Out of the large number of poems entered in this second contest the
judges, Miss Horne, Miss Pullen and Mrs. Coon, selected one written by
Roberta Hayes and Margaret Richardson, again working in collaboration,
and one written by Marjorie Ellis as the two best. At the suggestion of
the judges the three girls got together and, combining their ideas, finally
achieved a result that was pleasing to the committee.
The staff is delighted with the result of what seemed to many a too
ambitious enterprise and is proud to publish herewith the winning music
