In one hand he wearily swings his scythe back and forth, while on his l-:necs is an uncompleted .lig-Saw puz- zle. He looks gloomily down for a while and then suddenly smiles.l FATHER TIME: Bless my long grey beard, they are a large and lively bunch! By gorry, they are the kids who started high scool when 1930 was alive, and they will be graduated this year too! I must appoint 1933 to see about them. That is a good idea- I'll raise those past years from the dead just to hear what they have to say. They ought to be pretty good historians. tHe arises and going to a corner of the cloud grasps his rust-proof zip- per and zips an opening of a couple of feet.J FATHER TIME: Hey, 1930, '31, and 132, wake up there, and come here- plutol I want to ask you something. tHe takes a seat and assumes a regal air, while 1930, '31, and '32 file out and stand in front of him.3 l l l My son, tto 19303 you are older than your brothers here, so tell me what you know of the Freshlnen of the Florence High School the year you were on earth. 1930 tbowing lowJ: My most hon- orable Father, they came into Flor- ence High School a class composed of-of-what shall I say? Not daz- zling intellects, as the teachers of the .Iunior High will affirm, and certainly not "bone-heads," as their reports will prove. Let me depart from the tradi- tional egotisms of all such history and say that they were about the average bunch that yearly come to serve the upper-classmen, being neither wise nor foolish. but "freshies,', with all that the term ilnplies. After the ordeal of schedule cards and the purchase of chapel seats from a group of enter- prising Seniors, they settled down to -tuba, tubae-hic, hic, hoc-. They were soon reconciled to being called crazy dumb-bells by Aunt Sallie, and having Miss Dubose say, "Now, Baby, that's wrongl' At first they had been resentful, for they did not think them- selves babies or dumb-bells, but they soon caught on and became ardent worshippers of their Latin and Alge- bra teachers. Despite many fearful experiences, such as holding one's breath while Mr. Briggs called out "those he would like to see," they were proud of beinghigh school students. To change classes, instead of having the teachers change, was really quite a treat. And by the end of the fresh- man year most of their greenness had faded. FATHER TIME: And now, my son, 1931, what do you know of this same class? 1931: My honorable Father Time, this class became Sophomores, with all that the term implies. They walked rot with I1 timid step as they had the year before-but with shoulders back. You never heard one of them call him- self a Sophomore, but always an "Ad- vanced-Sophomoref, It was during my time that Miss Davis, English teacher, departed to live happily ever after in the upper part of the state. By this time, my charges had plunged into "Gallic Wars," which they fought with as much ardor as had the illus- trious author. There was even "Julius Caesar," hilnself to be subdued. But the fight was on, and they dared not fail. FATHER TIME: And what have you to say. 1932? 1932: VVell, Father, thc class as .luniors of thc Florence High School tand it was quite a noble title for theml had become very wise-or otherwise. Zealously they began thc year and elected, as their President, Alfred Maxwell. The class started with gloomy prospects, for. as you well know, I was very poor. Banks had failed and times were hard.

For fear it should rain again, I returned early after supper and en- tered the dark hall by way of the back door. With cautious step and a feeble attempt at whistling, I ascended the three flights of stairs leading to my home room. How dark it was! I hurriedly entered the cloak room and with nervous fingers groped for the forgotten garment. Clumsily my arms sought the sleeves as I began my re- treat. I had almost reached the stairs when I chanced to glance down the hall and beheld what paralyzed my muscles and raised the small hairs on the back of my head like the quills of a fretful porcupine. Unable to speak, I backed. away and by accident, punched a switch, flooding the hall w1th.l1ght. The sight that met my eyes was lndeed comforting, for there stood no gruesome ghost as I had feared, hut rather a kindly looking old man, clad .in a'robe of purple and gold, and holding in his hand a peculiar rod, like a scythe. His pale blue eyes were fixed on me with an amused expres- sion, as I gasped for the necessary breath to ask a question. He came to my rescue. "No need to be afraid, young mang I am only the prophet of Florence High." Vtlithout any added introduction, he motioned me to follow as he entered the Chemistry Lab, whence voices is- sued, adding their volume to the hub- bub now emanating from every part of the building. I beheld-not the usual group of noisy students-but a small knot of old men working around tubes and beakers of steaming mix- tures. Despite their mustaches, I rec- ognized Joe Stricklin, Ben Easterling, Claude Smith and James Allen, all working on the Rockefeller project of the year 1956, as the calendar on the wall stated. Leaving this busy group, we went into the science room where others in this field were collaborating for its advancement, among them George VValker, Leon Spiller, Grad- dick Stokes and Fred Ward. ln the French room, instead of the usual one- teacher system, the class was divided into units holding competitive drills. The talkative young teachers were Margaret Rollins, Mary Louise Rut- ledge and Carolyn Hoffmeyer. After a fond au revoir, we made our way to the Latin room where an old lady, whom I recognized as our beloved Aunt Sallie, was' supervising her as- sistants in translating a forgotten page in Roman history. These great teach- ers and students were Jane William- son, Virginia McKeithen, Janie Farmerlable old leader, the' Supreme Court and Nettle Allen. Not being able to understand this type of work, I hurried to the English room where the leading American novelists and journalists were in con- ference. I recognized here my dear friend, the celebrated Kathleen Riley, who had just completed her famous book of poems entitled "Harvard Clas- sics." David Reese, mentor of the "New York Timesf' introduced his editorial staff composed of Burrel Snyder, C. P. Johnson, ard Jean Wil- son. Miss Mary Seigle, prominent col- umnist ofthe day, was present. Among the budding novelists receiving the criticism of their peers, were Nell .Iackson, Margaret McBratrey and Leo English. We then made our way to the realm of mathematics, where the world's greatest ciphers were successfully squaring the circle. Those present were James Holman, Weber Jenkins. Thomas McClenaghan, Sterling Med- lin, Francis Hopkins and J. C. Mims. I now followed the old gentleman down stairs, where he paused be"ore the Student Cooperation Association room. With beating heart, I waited until the door flew open in response to our knock. To say that the scene was most irregular would be mild indeed, for there before my eyes was a joint meeting of the senate and con- gress of our United States. To conceal my agitation, I took a pinch of Mr. .lefferson's snuff and stumbled sneez- ing, to a vacant seat. In keeping with the ever new idea of economy in gov- ernment, they were debating the ap- propriations bill for the coming year. Presiding over the assembly was His Honor, the President of the United States, John Hussey. I learnedethat the economy bill was written by the honorable James L. Dabney and spon- sored by the I-Ion. Messrs. Edgar Stan- ton, Clyde Haselden, T. E. Matthews, Charles Thomas and the Hon. Miss Elizabeth Anderson. Glancing in the direction of the representatives, I saw with pride Scott Monroe, Mary Eliz- abeth Hickey, James Gray, Herbert Green, .Iames McLeod and James Earle Johnson. Among the celebrities of the senate, despite their somnolent dignity, I rec- ognized Harvard Dudlev, Billie Cutts, Ben Easterling, Eunice Bynum, Martha Dantzler, "Bee" Furchgott. Betty Cook and Annie Corley. VVe stayed until the speaker anounced the first reading of the proposed Eighteenth Amendment repeal issue. VVe left in disgust. A few stepsbrought us to Mr. Briggs' office, which I, recalling painful experiences, declined to enter, but a persuasive smile from my guide calmed my fears and gave me courage. Instead of the neat office, and genial hut commanding boom of our honor- of the bnlted States 1n all its dignity confronted us. Gracing the bench were James Strickland, Paul Brendel, Mary Lee Brockington, Ruth Graham, Joe Comander, T. I. Martin, Ralph Mc- Cormick and Randolph Thompson. The lawyers presenting their cases were Bernard Fitzharris, of the firm Cheele, Steele, Liare and Fitzharris, represent- ing the Rosebud Fertilizer Company, and Fred Willis of the Cannon, Ball, Powder. Shoote and Willis, represent- ing the Trash Alley Perfume Concern. Both lawyers displayed their argu- ments grandiloquently before the court. Leaving such solemnity. we walked down the hall to the old auditorium where the world's greatest all woman woN'1'INI'r:p ox Insole sn ROOM 308 fContinuedD ' Percy Tucker The kindest man. the best-conditioned and unwcaricd spirit - ln doing courtesies. il' ik is George Walker He can't be wrong whose life is in the right.

Miss Campbell, French and Spanish teacher, was unable to rejoin the faculty. Miss Cole and Miss Dozier had gone to other fields. Dan Cupid had been doing some accurate shooting in the direction of the fac- ulty, for Miss Early had at last been overcome, and was now Mrs. Early Rhame. Miss Bessinger had been pierced by an arrow from over Harts- ville way and deserted work in the middle of the year. And then came themes, not yearly, quarterly, nor monthly but tye godsll weekly! How I pitied the poor creatures. Evidently the teachers liked their wild imagina- tions. But other matters soon came to the front, and they began to run everybody crazy, including them- selves, trying to sell tickets to help finance the Junior-Senior banquet. Despite the depression, they were so successful that they were able to en- gage the Central Hotel dining room for an elegant banquet. During this time the student body voted to install a Student Cooperative Association, in which the Juniors took an active part. Their president was elected Secretary and Treasurer for the Council, and the class was allowed four represent- atives in the house. They were lusty youngsters, many of the football squad. and practically all the lower state champions in basketball being Juniors. But they had brain as well as brawn, for when the marshals were appointed it was found that the gen- cral average in scholarship was high- er than it had been for many years. A Junior girl won a place in the State English contest. Altogether the class had done well. FATHER TIME: Well spoken. my son. Now look ye o'er the bank and call your living brother. 1933.

I may be a little modern but I can't help it. I am alive, and want to make the most of it. I have just come from a modern world. Down there things are im- proving. There is a new president in the U. S. and everything is fine. The Depression is beginning to weaken. Just think of it, I am the year who kicks Prosperity around the corner. class? 1933: Oh, sure-the class. They are great, in more ways than one, too. They are the largest Senior Class that Florence High has ever had. They occupy four home-rooms. They elected FT. I. Martin for president and Mrs. Gee I l 1 J for sponsor. They have carried on the Student Cooperative System and have taken many athletic honors. The football, baseball, track, and basket- hall teams were composed mostly of Seniors. They have bought their class rings. The literary societies are divid- ed under separate leadership, and for the first time they are having society pins. They didn't make much money from the Senior Fair booth, but they made plenty at the Senior play, "Ace High". You should see the two issues of the miniature "Florentine", Why, they have even sent out their invita- tions and are ready to grab their sheepskins. Despite the fear of Amer- ican History and English VIII, they are a merry lot. So my class has come to graduation, and I, 1933, do hereby declare them to be the biggest, smart- est, peppiest class that has ever been graduated. FATHER TIME: My sous, you have done well, and I congratulate you. My eldest sons, go back to your sleep. tlixit 1930, '31, '32J 1933, I charge you to watch over and protect this Class, and see that they prove them- selves all that you have declared them. 1933: Have no fear, Dad.

FLORENCE HIGH TAKES COUNTY HONORS In the annual county contests held April 28, Florence High School was represented in expression by Sara Reinhardt, who won second place with "The Music Master." Edger Stan- ton's declamation, "Vengeance is Mine," was awarded third place. In 'the spelling preliminaries on May 2, Jane Williamson, representing her school for the second time, won first place, which entitles her to a hand- some gold medal and the right to com- pete against the winners from other counties in the state contest to be held at VVinthrop College in July. pageant of flowers was being present- ed. The charming ladies representing the United States were: Natalie Lucas. Marye Lewis Landrum, Betty Harper, Helen Putnam, Nell Hyman, Mollie Johnson, Alice Worrell, Pansy Touch- berry, Mabel Wilhoit, Mae Ellen Har- per,'and Avis Williams. The judges Lpullmg for the United States were :Norma McLen1ore, Nellie McElveen, Maude McPherson, Helen O'Harra. Mattie Powell, Mary Grace Poynor, and Alvena Proctor. Fearing that the decision might pre- cipitate a riot, we left this gorgeous scene and entered the commercial de- partment where the world's champion typist, James Williams, explained to us the Hunt and Peck System. It is said of Mr. Williams that he has an unusually keen sense of touch. We continued to the sewing room, now the smartest fashion shop on Fifth Avenue, owned jointly by Mar- garet Fortner, Pauline Proctor, Ethel Russell and Mary Wells Gandy. A group of matrons I recognized as the former Misses Louise Evans, Kath- leen Galloway, Beth Erskine, Francis Garrison, Ruth Gilland. Eliza Ervin, Freddie Furchgott. Annie Pearl Grim- sley and Margaret Pattillo. Suddenly, before I could ask about myself, my guide seemed to fade, smil- ing and waving in unison to a whir- ring thud in my head. I awoke. It was still dark, and I found myself ,lying on the cool floor with plaster lbroken ard scattered about me.

James Dabney STUDENT BODY HEARS INSPIRING SPEAKERS On Friday, April 21, at the regular assembly period, Dr. Frazer, President of Queens-Cbieora College, outlined to the students of the high school the course of action for "The Man Who Would Be King." He recalled God's promise, "There shall not fail thee a man on the throne of Israel," and the, universal demands of Kingship, "Be thou strong, and show thyself a man." Having defined his ideal as one who obeys the law, he warned his audience that side-stepping the law invariably makes one less able to obey. Life is a game, he declared. and one must obey the rules. Dr. Frazer concluded his address with the startling declara- tion that not favoritism but prepara- tion gives one a chance. "There is a prepared place for every prepared person." ' - , at is 1: 1 On April 21, Dr. McSween. President j of Presbyterian College at Clinton,' gave a most inspiring lecture. choos- ing for his topic "How to be Success- ful." He was emphatic in his state- ment that everybody can be successful if he is willing to pay the price, the highway being so well-marked, that you cannot miss it. Ambition, clearly defined, is to be our chart, and we dare not "fold over the map" and thus obscure the objective. Dr. McSween urged upon his audience the strin- gency of the times as a challenge, de- claring that self-discipline is to be the best teacher of all. In his words, "Make yourself do the things you don't want to do, and know you ought to do." Only the self-disciplined person can become a leader. "He who would lead must first him- self be led, Who would be loved be capable of love beyond the utmost he re- ceivesg Who wield the rod of power must first have bowed his head. And being honored, honor what is above, This know the men who leave the world their names." The block of granite which was an obstacle in the pathway of the weak becomes a stepping stone in the path- way of the strong.-Carlyle. VVhat men want is not talent, it is purpose: not the power to achieve, but the will to labor.-Bulwer Lytton.

O lt E N 'I' I N E 13 JUNIORS PRESENT COMEDY On April 12. before a large and ap- preciative audience, the Junior Class presented a delightful comedy. entitled "Here Comes Patricia." They had piomised the public a show full of hearty laughs and "hit parts," and the response from the audience indicated that no one was disappointed. Sarah Lynch, in the role of "Patri- cia," the feminine lead, displayed real talent in portraying a beautiful and daring young girl-quite at home in her over-alls, running a filling station, and equally so as the sophisticated daughter of the governor. Jane Chand- ler and Peggy Aiken-as Angelira and Minnie Knoop, respectively-kept the audience convulsed at their continual bickering over .Bud Flannigan tCecil Jeffordsl. Although Bud found it dif- ficult to propose to Angelina, because of Minnie's continual interference, he firally succeeded, much to everyone's delight. Every remark of Tom Wil- liamson's was greeted with shouts of laughter. As the small town loafer, Tim Hopper, he was incomparable. livervone agreed that Edwin Zeigler handled with marked success the rather difficult role of Elbert Hast- ings. Others in the east were .Iimmy Clark, a handsome young man in love with Patricia tBilly Bergcrlg Elsie Crowder, a sweet and pretty young girl tMary B.

From then on, the season was in full swing. the Jackets emerging winners from five consecutive contests. .These vic- tories included the ancient rivals from Lake City and Sumter.

The festivities began with a selection by the high school band. Following came the Dance of the Wooden Soldiers, presented by mem- bers of the girls' gym class dressed in red, white, and blue uniforms. Immediately after this dance the approach of the queen and her attend- ants was heralded by Betty McCall and Elizabeth Rogers, who wore dainty purple and gold costumes. The :attendants were Ethel Russell. Sarah Lynch, Pauline Proctor, Dorothy Mc- Leod, Kitty Smith, and Betsy Spar- row, whose dresses were of sheer, frilly organdy in pastel tints. Her majesty, Mary Corbin, dressed in a white satin with a lace ruff and long, flowing train, attended by her bearers. adorable little Flora McLeod and Sarah Houck in fluffy white organdy. The queen proceeded around the walk to her regal white throne, erected on the steps amid a background of gar- lands of pink roses. T. I. Martin, in court costume, graciously placed the crown of pearls on the queen's head, just after which an invisible choir, composed of Peggy Aiken, Margaret Fortner, and Margaret R. Smith, sang "I Love You Truly". Charles McLen- don presented the queen with an arm- ful of roses. The Balloon Dance, the Garland Dance, the Hoop Dance, and several Frolics were then presented for the queen's pleasure. A beautiful May-pole dance served as a fitting climax for the ceremonies. After these festivities the queen and her court graciously made their de- parture. I I I E FLORENCE ENTERTAINS SCOUT JAMBOREE The annual "Jamboree" for the Boy Scouts of the Pee Dee area was held Friday, May 5, with the Florence Scouts as hosts. At 10:45 all the troops lined up according to their numerical order and paraded through the busi- ness streets of the city. It was a gala affair with colors flying, and the pa- rade, which was over two blocks long, proved that the men of Florence and surrounding cities were truly trying to give of their best to the youth of the section. After the parade had re- turned to Hicks' Field, dinner was served by the Florence Council, as- sisted by Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Smithg Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Hardee: Chief Mc- Iver and Mrs. Frank Brand. At 2 o'clock the competitive events began, but soon gave way to "Jupiter Pluvius" who came down in full force and sent the 600 scouts scurrying to the gym, where the contests began. After the knot-tying and first aid events had been completed, "Old Sol" came out in all his glory and laughed "Jupiter Pluvius" to scorn. With hopes high the troops prepared for the re- maining events but again the rain poured, so the Jamboree had to be postponed. Active in Scout life are the follow- ing Seniors of Florence High School: Claude Smith C63-Senior Patrol Leader, Harvard Dudley t7l-Junior Assistant Scoutmasterg John Hussey C875 Edgar Stanton C81-Senior Patrol Leader, Joe Taylor C81-Assistant Scoutmasterg T.

"Shopping Center of the Pee Dee" J UNIORS FETE SENIORS In a setting of unusual beauty, the Junior-Senior banquet of this year proved to be one of the loveliest ever presented for the graduating class. The dining room of the Central Hotel was transformed for the occasion into a rose garden with a pink and white color scheme predominating. Dainty, old-fashioned nosegays and houta- nieres graced each cover, while in the center of every table was a mound of pink roses. The program for the evening was as follows: "Just an Old-Fashioned Garden"- Ben Easterling. Welcome-Harlee Powell. .i'The Minuet'-Miss Barfield's Pu- pi s. To the Seniors-David McLeod. Response-T. I.

COLUMBIA JINX IS BROKEN The grip of the Columbia jinx seems to have been suddenly broken, and Florence can stretch her ancient rival on the mat. instead of always takingi the count herself. After two heart-refreshing victories over the Capitals during basketball season, the Jacket base-ball team, on Thursday, May 4, staged the only real walk-away over a Columbia Hi team at any time during current history in competition between the two schools. Gaining in the first two innings a lead that was never to be threatened, the Florence nine scored almost at will over the Capitals who failed dur- ing nine innings to hit their proper stride. The Jacket battery, Hyer-Hol- land, was never in any trouble. Hyer struck out thirteen men and allowed but three hits during the entire game. Those doing conspicuously good work for the locals were Blackwell on first, and Sturkie at short stop, whose double brought in three men.

The spectators in the bleachers near third base soon rec- ognized him as the sport he is, and soon showered him with good-natured and often times admiring remarks. SOCIETIES COMPETE FOR TROPHY Literary society competition this year promises to be the keenest in the history of the Florence High School. On Tuesday evening, in oration, Clyde Haselden tCriterionl, speaking on "Wake Up, America," will compete against Jack Muldrow tlftopianl, whose oration is "One out of One Hundred Twenty Million."

Q 4 ON YOUR MARK, ' Give THE GRASS SENIORS O F in : A CHANCE STUDENTS PRESENT INSPIRING PROGRAM At the assembly period on February 10, as a fitting conclusion for the first semester's work, and as a reception totthe freshmen advanced from Junior High, students and faculty members gave a splendid interpretation of the spirit of the student body. J. L. Dab- ney, president of the Students' Coop- erative Association, announced the speakers as follows: "Scholarship and Conduct", Virginia McKeithen, "Loy- alty", Elizabeth Andersong "Courtesy", Edgar Stanton, "Enthusiasm", Allie Strlcklin. Following these fine talks, Mr. Rhame, in his usual charming manner, spoke of the benefits to be derived from athletic sports, especially a sense of fair play, selfcontrol and helpful- ness. Mr. Moore concluded the dis- cussion with a reminder to upper classmen, and freshmen alike, that fine living is "treating the other fel- low as you would like him to treat you." The orchestra contributed sev- eral enjoyable numbers. This year the chapel program- planned by the home rooms instead of the English Department, as formerly- have proved varied, interesting, and entertainingg The different national festivals and holidays-Hallowe'en, Christmas and Thanksgiving, as well as Dolitics, athletics, manners, debates and. plays-have found a place in these periods set aside for chapel. In addi- tion we have had two speakers: Edison Marshall, a famous American hunter and writer: and Reverend W. S. Poy- nor, the beloved rector ofthe Episco- pal church. SENIOR CLASS PLAY GETS UNDERWAY The cast of the Senior Class play has settled down to work on a three- act comedy entitled "Ace High", under the efficient direction of Mrs. Lee Rhame. The play is interesting and entertaining from beginning to end. The movement is fast and the turn of events most unusual. The cast in- cludes the following in the order of their appearance: Parker Jones-The retired fertilizer king ..... Thomas Barringer Catherine-His wife . . . . . . Elizabeth Anderson Gladys-Their eldest daughter . . . . . . . Margaret Fortner Kit-Their youngest daughter . . . . . . . . Kathleen Riley Morey-Their son . . . Jimmy Allen Mrs. Maxfield-A guest in the Jones home .... Virginia McKeithen Blair Challman-The garageman . . . . . . . Charles Thomas Fulton-The butler . . Jack Muldrow Dora Cowan-The gardener's daugh- ter ...... Martha Dantzler BANTAMS OUTSHOOT JACKETS Led by Cartwright and McNeil, two sharp-shooting forwards, the Charles- ton Hi School quintet defeated Flor- ence Hi Wednesday night, 51 to 33. The Jacket team managed the' ball well and their plays clicked regularly, but inability to cash in on the shots in the strategic moments proved costly. Charleston, on the other hand, presented the most accurate shooting team ever seen on the local court. During the entire game they missed only seven shots, while the Florence boys were missing fifty-three tries at the basket. The work of Sid Smith, "Red" Schuyler, and especially Bill Bryce was outstanding for Florence. Cart- wright's uncanny accuracy in shoot- ing kept the Bantams in the lead, while McNeil played a jam-up game for Charleston, as did Jones, until he was put out on fouls. LITERARY SOCIETIES PRESENT ATTRACTIVE PROGRAMS At the reorganization meeting of the Criterion Literary Society, officers were elected and plans begun for the framing and adoption of a constitution, and the selection of a pin to become the standard emblem of the society. During the semester, some splendid educational and entertaining programs have been given, especially the Scott Centennial celebration. The query for debate was "Resolved: That the policy of concluding reciprocal com- mercial treaties is a wise one," the affirmative being upheld by Edgar, Stanton and Elizabeth Anderson, and the negative by Simon Ward and Clyde Haselden. The regative team won the decision and Edgar Stanton was de- clared the best debater. The Criterion Society extends to all Juniors and Seniors a cordial invita- tion to join during the second semes- ter. The Utopian Literary Society at the beginning of the first semester, elected the following officers: president, Bur- rell Snyderg vice-president, James Dabney, secretary, Janie Farmer, treasurer, Beatrice Furchgott. At the regular meetings, held every two weeks during the semester, the following subjects have been dis- cussed: "Public Speaking and Parlia- mentary Procedure", "Education", a debate-"Resolved: That the policy of concluding reciprocal treaties with other nations is a wise one", and "Sir Walter Scott". These programs re- vealed careful preparation and proved both enjoyable and helpful to the members of the society. ln addition to literary programs, the regular routine business of the society has been transacted. A very neat, inexpensive pin has been selected. CHIEF RED WING CAPTIVATES AUDIENCE One of the most entertaining and instructive programs of the year was presented in chapel recently by the last of the royal sons of the Chippewa tribe, Chief Red Wing, who is touring the country in the interest of his race. The Chief related many anecdotes and customs of the diminishing tribes, among them being a vivid account of an Indian boy's trials before he may become a warrior. Chief Bed Wing stated that an amus- ing idiosyncracy of the red man's tribe is the fact that it is free of pro- fane oaths, which makes it, indeed, a remarkable one! The program was brought to an excellent climax by a Sioux war dance performed in elaborate costume, and with the agility characteristic of such an Indian performance. The dance was accompanied by blood-curdling whoops, which the boys are trying to perfect in imitation-much to the annoyance of the public in general! When interviewed, Chief Red Wing told of his experiences as an aviator in the 125th Infantry Air Squadron, during the World War. He explained that the welfare of his people IS a matter of gravest importance to him and that the proceeds of his programs would be given to their assistance. JUNIORS- TO PRESENT COMEDY "Here Comes Patricia" is the title of a three-act comedy which will be presented by the Junior Class in April. It is an uproarious and charming play filled with baffling situations and un- expected climaxes. The characters range all the way from Patricia Tray- son, a beautiful girl of nineteen, to homely Minnie Knoop whose life am- bition is to have a beau, and from Elbert Hastings, a proper and per- plexed young Englishman, to Tim Hopper, a lazy, slow-moving town character of forty-five. The complete cast is as follows: Mrs. Carroll-A pleasant, motherly old widow . . . Allie Stricklin Elsie Crowder-A pretty young neigh- bor ..... , Mary B. Heape Mrs. Smith-Porter . . . . . The town aristocracy Angelina Knoop-Another young neigh- bor-not so pretty . Jane Chandler Minnie Knoop-Angelina's cousin . . . . . . . . .PeggyAiken .Iimmy Clarke-A new-comer in Fern Lawn .......

We wish to thank the firms that have so loyally supported us, for they have been friends in need, and indeed. We 1'ecommend their advertisements to all, and our paper to as many as may be charitably inclined toward a di- minutive "Florentine". Ill if if SCHOOL MANNERS Our mothers have taught us that a primary rule of etiquette is to ap- pear interested when others talk to us. but very often in chapel our actions would lead a visitor to believe that we have never heard such a rule. Probably the fact that the clock in the auditorium is behind us proves a disturbing element. In turning around tf- see if we are going to miss that dreaded next period, we distract others who may be interested in what the speaker is saying. Thus we re- mind others, only passively interested, that the clock is back there, and they immediately turn to see what the pros- pects are of their missing lessons. Our constant squirming annoys those about us-to say nothing of confusing the sneaker, for no one likes to be ignored. Why can we not be as considerate of others as we wish them to be of us? Again we are often inconsiderate in the school library, which is offered only to those who wish to read or study. The use of the library amounts to abuse often, by those who persist in talking. Another very common abuse is keeping borrowed books until they are overdue. Of course, we pay the fines, but it is not fair for us to nxonopolize books that others may wish to read. Our conduct in the halls and on the grounds is at times unbecoming in students of the Florence High School. Most of this is due, however, to thoughtlessness. VVe know that throw- ing paper in the halls at random or walking across the grass is not in com- pliance with the wishes of the school T H E F L O lt E N T l N E authorities. VVe commit these offenses only because we fail to consider how the premises would look if everyone did the same things we do. Let us ask ourselves, "What kind of place would the Florence High School be if everyone acted just as I do?" Let our actions answer, "It would be an ideal place." if if 'll From "The Oracle", A bi n g t o n fPennsylvaniaD High School, we re- print in part an editorial that is al- ways timely. "The next worst thing to having no convictions at all is having hardened convictions. Sometimes the brain cells seem to set like concrete. To intro- duce a new thought requires a blast- ina operation. The happiest people in the world are those who cultivate the virtue of open- mindedness. Anyone who can pass the age of sixty and still have an open mind is a great man. An open mind is more to be admired and to be de- sired than great riches. That is not an exaggeration. How painful it must be to go through life, suffering mental agony, because changes are made that require the bending or breaking of fixed convictions. Every man is con- firmed of the absolute truth of cer- tain principles, but no sensible man supposes that he has a monopoly on truth. If there is such a thing as the foun- tain of youth, the source of this youth is an open mind." THE ELEPHANT REMEMBERS "Lake Re-View", Lake View High School tChicagol makes the follow- ing observations: Feed an elephant trick peanuts as a boy, and he will recognize and re- member you as an old man with a long white beard, and, if he gets a chance, will squirt water all over you with his trunk. We resemble other animals in enough ways, without adding to the list by acting like an elephant and keeping a grudge for years. He who cannot find some excuse to make up with a friend after a little tiff is an unsociable person indeed. The quicker you get on good terms the better, because every day widens the breach between you. SHORT TURNS WITH A HIGH SCHOOL BOOK WORM Hamlin Garland, author of "A Son of the Middle Borderj' has a new book of stories about the celebrated writers he has known. It is entitled "My Friendly Contemporariesf' ln her mountain home near Ash- ville, Mrs. Sara Coleman Porter, wid- ow' of O. Henry, is writing a new novel called "Unseen Cables." She carries on the O. Henry tradition with short stories, serials, and three novels to her credit. The English poet laureate, .lohn Masefield, has published two books this year, "A Tale of Troy," and "Re- cent Prose." "Ann Vickers" is the first book writ- ten by Sinclair Lewis since he won the Nobel Prize in 1930. Usually he writes of men, but in this book his theme is the life of a modern woman. DuBose Heyward, a native South Caroliman, has written a book about Charleston-"Peter Ashley." ' Edna St. Vincent Millay, author of that enchanting little verse: "My candle burns at both ends, It will not last the nightg But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends, It makes a lovely lightf' has given several radio programs this winter. Her interpretations of her poems are unique. Julia Peterkin, author of "Scarlet Sister Mary,', which won for her the Pulitzer Prize, was a recent guest of Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, who enter- tained many prominent authors. Mrs. Peterkin is a native South Carolinian who devotes her talent to portraying the people of the low country. John Galsworthy, England's grand old man of letters, and winner of the Nobel Prize for this year, died recent- ly. He was unable to receive the award in person because of illness. "Flowering Wilderness" is his newest book. Isobel Wilder, sister of Thornton Wilder, has written her first book, "Mother and Four," which treats of the lives of ordinary people.

Battered and bruised in his crouched, blanketed body, Sick and sore to his depths, and aloof in dole, llntil he.saw the enemy's swift ad- vancing Sweeping his team mates backward. Then from his soul ' VVas cleansed the sense of self and the sting of failure, And he was one of a pulsing, strain- ing whole, llracing to stem the tide of the on flung bodies, Helping to halt that steady, relent- less roll, Then he was part of a fighting, fren- zied unit Forcing them back and back from the goal. There on the side lines came the thought like a whip-crack As his team rallied and rose and took control. Ile had not made the team but, for four long seasons, Each of ten grinding weeks, he had given the flower, The essence and strength of body, brain and spirit, He and his kind-the second team- till the power To cope with opposition and to sur- 1 mount it U u Into the team was driven against this hour! What did it matter who held fast to the leather, He or another? What was a four- years dream? Out of his heart the shame and rancor lifted: There burst from his throat a hoarse, exultant scream. Not in the fight, but part of it, he was winning! This was his victoryg he had MADE the team! CHEER LEADERS "PEP UP" STUDENT BODY The cheer leaders for 1932-1933, elected at a mass meetirg of the stu- dent body, have proved enthusiastic and loyal supporters of the Jackets. Leader Billy Smith, elected by acclam- Pollyanna herself. For him the game is never lost until the team has left the field. The assistant cheer leaders are Fred Willis, Jane Chandler, and Charles Gilbert, who is serving a see- ond year in that capacity. The many new yells and songs submitted have "popped up" the cheering section. JACKETS MAKE BRILLIANT RECORD IN BASKETBALL In the face of a heavy schedule, the Yellow Jackets settled down to work early in the season for the opening game with Wilmington. The affray proved exciting throughout, for during the regular playing period. neither team could lead the other by more than three points, and when the whistle blew the score was 21 all. In the extra period. Wilmington ran up 9 points to beat the locals 30-23. Coach Bed Dobson, of Spartanburg, who saw the game, readily agreed to a two game series between the Jackets and the Spartans. In the cortest with Holly Hill, the locals won a decisive victory. On January 10, when Wilmington came here for a return game, the Jackets exacted vengeance for the de- feat handed them earlier in the sea- son, and defeated the Tarheels in a fast and furious game 20-25. In the face of the old Columbia "iinx',, the Jackets set out on Friday thirteenth. over sleety, wet roads to meet the Capitals. After trailing Coach B. Rha1ne's boys through most of the game, the locals extended themselves to emerge on the happy end of a 49-36 score. The following Friday the Jackets journeyed to Sumter and, in spite of za small gym. managed to trounce the Gamecocks 45-15. This was balm in- deed to the members of the football team who were still nursing a grudge for the tie handed them during the past season. On January 24 the boys entertained St. John's quintet from Darlington to the tune of a 49-10 score, in spite of the entirely new and puzzling defense presented by the visitors. B. of L. E. STORE 1 January 29 only repeated the previous victory on a large scale. From this point the Jackets devoted themselves to classroom activities for mid-term exams, with an occasional work-out in the gym to insure a hearty welcome to the Capitals in the return game. This contest proved all that the record crowd could have wished for, both teams fighting desperately through four quarters for the lead. With a last minute rally the Jackets gained a four point margin which put them on the big end of a 30-26 score. Members of the varsity squad are T. I. Martin, captaing David McLeod, alternate captain, Sidney Smith, Bill Bryce, John Bailey, William,Hickey, Jack Smith, E. D. Lane, Scott Monroe and Le Grand Schuyler. JACQUETTES DOWN RIVALS The diminutive Jacquettes have met formidable opponents, and played close games the entire season. The best exhibitions were against Wil- mington in Wilmington, and against Memminger here, when the locals came from behind at the half to win, 36-32. The squad this year has been unus- ually large, the following being out regularly for practice: Virginia Irby, .lacqueline Sealle, Hazel Hewitt, Hen- rietta Barnwell, Irene Snow, Margaret Poynor, Kathleen Riley, Adella Holmes, Margaret Hoyt, Carrie Lee Corley, Annie Dell Caston, Boxie Bell Parker, Nell Jackson, Ruby Miller and Mary McLeod.

As a re- sult of this organization. girls and boys will play under entirely different standards in competition for the ath- letic letter. The girls will get a golden shield with a purple block. upon win- ning 1,000 points under the adopted point system. The season started with hockey, but, due to the late school term. it was impossible to obtain an outside game. Nevertheless, the team had several -weeks of hard practice and developed a fine cooperative team. The basket ball season opened with a bang, when more than sixty girls appeared for the first practice. Later Coach Sasser picked her squad and settled down to regular practice. At an early meeting, Marv Seaglc was elected manager, and Helen O'Hara. captain. Manager Seagle has worked out a full schedule, including many of the leading teams in the vicinity: Charleston, Mayesville, Orangeburg, Darlington, Hartsville and Wilming- IGH. The Association will sponsor many spring sports-tennis, track, soccer, and archery. YELLOW JACKETS HAVE GOOD GRID SEASON Two weeks before the opening of school, forty candidates for the Yel- low Jacket football eleven reported to Coach Raymond Blackwell to start training for the coming season on the gridiron. With the old fighting spirit of Florence High instilled into the heart of every member of the squad, the good season anticipated by Coaches Rhame and Blackwell saw fulfillment, except for two backsets by much superior teams. Just before the first game played with Gaffney, the squad elected Fred VVard captain, J. L. Dabney alternate captain, and Clarence Farmer mana- ger. The squad invaded Gaffney, Colum- bia and Sumter. The Orangeburg game was played on the Pee Dee fair grounds, while in the other games Florence took the defensive on Hicks Field. The Yellow Jacket backfield men had the entire cooperation of the line- men in every attempt to advance the ball toward the goal. This combina- tion proved a match for any high school. Sturkie would easily have made all-state guard if there had been an all-state high school team. The team is composed of the fol- Asa Sturkie . . . . . Right guard Burrel Snyder . . . . Center t.l L.

Many new aspirants will be seen competing for positions ,on the team, among them Williams, tliollins, Snyder, Kendall, Strickland, Garrison, Hickey, Martin, Hyer, Moore, Ward, Gramling and Bryce. Among the last year men who will be available are Jack Smith, who placed first in the high jump in the state meet at Columbia, McLeod who placed first in the pole vault, Com- mander who placed fifth in the 440 run, and Powell who chalked up sev- enteen points in the Berkeley-Florence High meet. In 1931, the first year of track at Florence High, the Jackets placed sixth in the state meet among twenty- six high schools of South Carolina.

Members of the house are Billy Elliott, Bertie Gregg and Buena Allen. ' The new Freshman class has fallen in line with all student activities, es- pecially pep meetings and games. Due to the depression, the sale of chapel seats has not proved as profitable as heretofore. During the first report period, the Sophomore class made a fine record in scholarship. Those making A on major subjects were Masie Reid Pat- tillo, Sara Rogers, Elinor Tyler, Mar- garet Poynor, Jane Salters, Lillian Clarke, Elsie Gregg and Elizabeth Hoffmeyer. The following won the same distinction during the second period: Virginia Brown, Lillian Clarke, Margaret Poynor, .Iane Salters, Elizabeth Hoffmeyer, Kenneth Law- rence, Drake Watson, Henry Dargan, Elinor Tyler, Sarah Rogers, and Kath- leen Lazar, Elizabeth Hoffmeyer and Lillian Clarke made A on major sub- jects the whole report period.

In the inter-class basket ball, the "Sophs" sent the score soaring against the "Freshies." John Bailey has played an excellent game on the boys' varsity basket ball team, and Asa Sturkey held right guard in football. Members of the Junior class serving on the council during the first semes- ter were David McLeod, Ford Mclver, ard Allie Strickland. The members of the House of Representatives are as follows: Willis Harris, Thad Moore, Edwin Zeigler and Sara Reinhardt. The appearance of Dr. Red Wing, chief of the Royal Chippewa Tribe, in a delightful lecture and interpretation of his race, was sponsored by the .lunior class. EDISON MARSHALL VISITS FLORENCE HIGH Students of the Florence high school have had the treat of a lifetime in hearing this year the famous traveller and writer, Edison Marshall. Mr. Marshall believes in "going to headquartersn for his subject matter. Consequently, he spends much of his time abroad in the remote corners of the earth. This fact makes him a most interesting speaker. His "ad- dress" to the students proved to be two entertaining stories of the jungles. These were most instructive to the student body, as he presented them in such a way that even the least imag- inative person could gain a vivid pic- ture of a journey through the jungles. As a speaker, Mr. Marshall is most attractive, being informal in his man- ner and at all times at ease. His keen sense of humor and his dramatic method of story-telling make him an incomparable speaker.
