4 Corners 0 e of center . "DlD YOU KNOW that there were only 92 kids in school then?" asks Danny Riggle, senior, as he and Larry Goldsby, senior, examine the cornerstone of Building B. ' "THE RIGHT SWlTCH?" Floyd C. Smith, principal, won- ders os he experiments with the two-way PA system iust after its installation. . l6 Blending the old and new, Building B is rich in tradition but abundant in shiny new gadgets. The study hall was the tirst area reiuvenated when re- modeling started lost summer. Instead ot the long, dull room with the battered, old-fashioned desks, the new study hall is just halt the size of the old one. Furnished with modern blue desks, the room gets Flora's own personal stamp from a pattern ot orange desks in the center to form an "F." The Student Council at Flora High set up shop and opened a book room tor the sale of paper, pencils, note cards and other supplies, rental books are also dispensed from this room. Another eye-catching improvement is the office with its new furniture and its long, angling counter. The automatic bell system keeps the school running on o iohnny-on-the-spot schedule. . INNOCENT LOOKING 'LITTLE KNOB, isn't it? Brenda Kincaid, senior office assistant, could easily give the twist that would put the whole school in an uproar. This knob controls the bells.

' e 'label with addition o so h i Two years to remember - i938-39. The vocational building, now known as A, during these years grew from a mass ot lines and figures on a blueprint to an educa- tional realization. Last summer, after almost two decades ot use, the old structure was given a "face-lifting" and reorganization. The center of athletic activity known as the "boys' gym" has housed many "thrilling" basketball games since the premier with Flora against Paris in l939. The moving of the ag boys to new headquarters pro- vided a place tor a locker room, athletic office, and art department. Home ec girls were transferred, kitchens and all, to a more spacious nook in building C. Into the place of the sewing machines, sinks, and stoves moved the history classes and movie room. In late December, the music enthusiasts grabbed their horns and migrated to "spanking new" rooms in another building. Yes, this area of the high school was confusing this year, but building A is like the rest of the world, it is changing. . MAKING GOOD USE of the new typing tables, Sue Grace and Phyllis Hedge, Locust Log and Harstan editors, show the wear and tear of deadline dilemma. .AWAITING THE CALL for the coronation ceremony, Agnes Whelan, sophomore, realizes a lifetime ambition. "This is what I've always wanted to do," she giggles as she rests her feet on the teacher's desk in the new social studies classroom recently converted from a home economics food lab. . "MOTHER, BRING ME my lunch money. I'm starved and broke!" gasps Freeda Thompson, iunior, as she uses the recently obtained pay-phone in a typical high schooler's predicament.

S r ture bea S 1912 dateline 1 TEN CENTS TO GET IT BACK. Brenda Kincaid, senior, and "B" Oglesby, sophomore, hunt diligently for a lost English boolr. Careless students must pay the fee to get the volume returned. NO MORE FALLEN arches from waiting in line in the office. Dean Erwin, iunior, talres advantage of the new "executive" looking chairs. l7l NO MORE RUNNING over to the store between classes. Barbara Levitt, senior, asks the price of the paper pad and pencil she is purchasing from Tom Owens, sophomore. The school book-room is operated by the Student Council. COMFORTABLE STUDYING, Lennie Griffith, freshman, Tom McCawley, sophomore, Wayne Lappington, freshman, and Rolla Carter, iunior, seem to think so as they try out the "latest" in study hall seats.
