About that time the Carolina Glee Club came to Wilson, and their beautiful rendering of "Hark the Sound of Tar Heel Voices" gave the staff an idea. The High School should have a song that would thrill 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 American citizen. The editor-in-chief conferred with the principal, with other members 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 original. 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 and verse.
