FLORENCE CITY SCHOOLS
To lflorenee High, our Florence High,
We lift a song of praise:
That eehoes clear from year to year
Through all sueeeeding days.
ln thee we find our guiding star
To serviee in the worldg
As soldiers we seek vietory
With banners all unfurled.
To us the Gold and Purple IllZll'li
A symbol tried and true,
To it pledge we fidelity
And loyalty anew
Whene'er that banner waves on high
O'er field or traek or hall,
To that hrighl bond our hearts respond.
We heed its stirring eall.
Oh sun, that shines o'er Southern skies,
Oh IIIOOII, that gilds thc night
Oh stars that gleam on field and stream.
Oh God of life and light-
Send forth thy blessings from above:
Send hope that conquers fear
To tIarolina's sons that love
Our Ahua Mater dear.

THE SENIOR CLASS OF FLORENCE
A Historical Review in One Act
Dramatis Persoiiae: Father Time and
Place: A cumulus cloud over Flor-
ence County, South Carolina
Time: Spring, 1933
CAs curtain rises, Father Time is
sitting on the edge of a cloud bank.
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
tHe arises and going to a corner
of the cloud grasps his rust-proof zip-
per and zips an opening of a couple
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
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
FATHER TIME: And now, my son,
1931, what do you know of this same
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

you to say. 1932?

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. There
were other changes, too, in their

It was one of those murky days
when there is rain enough in the
morning to necessitate a rain-coat,
which, careless and absent-minded as
I am, I had forgotten at the dinner
hour and again at the final dismissal
bell. 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
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
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
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

school life. 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.

the Student Cooperative System and
have taken many athletic honors. The
football, baseball, track, and basket-

Seniors. They have bought their class
rings. The literary societies are divid-
ed under separate leadership, and for

from the Senior Fair booth, but they
made plenty at the Senior play, "Ace

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-

pete against the winners from other
counties in the state contest to be held
at VVinthrop College in July.

the United States were: Natalie Lucas.
Marye Lewis Landrum, Betty Harper,
Helen Putnam, Nell Hyman, Mollie

:Norma McLen1ore, Nellie McElveen,

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.

the former Misses Louise Evans, Kath-

Suddenly, before I could ask about
myself, my guide seemed to fade, smil-

STUDENT BODY HEARS INSPIRING
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." ' - ,

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-
Who wield the rod of power must first
have bowed his head.
And being honored, honor what is

world their names."

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.

MARY CORBIN CROWNED QUEEN
OF THE MAY
The crowning of the May Queen on
Friday, May 5, was one of the most
beautiful pageants ever presented in
Florence. 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-
FLORENCE ENTERTAINS SCOUT
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

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.

STUDENTS PRESENT INSPIRING
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
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

have proved varied, interesting, and

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

was put out on fouls.
LITERARY SOCIETIES PRESENT
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-
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
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

character of forty-five.

Economic conditions have made it
necessary for the class of 1933 to
dispense with the traditional "Flor-

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

authorities. VVe commit these offenses
only because we fail to consider how
the premises would look if everyone
did the same things we do.

do?" Let our actions answer, "It
would be an ideal place."

elected at a mass meetirg of the stu-

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

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
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

journeyed to Sumter and, in spite of

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

alternate captain, Sidney Smith, Bill

but, due to the late school term. it
was impossible to obtain an outside

several -weeks of hard practice and

YELLOW JACKETS HAVE GOOD
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-
The squad invaded Gaffney, Colum-
bia and Sumter. The Orangeburg
game was played on the Pee Dee fair
grounds, while in the other games

The Yellow Jacket backfield men
had the entire cooperation of the line-

EDISON MARSHALL VISITS
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
