Indeed, most of the fellows already have definite plans as to which branch of the service they expect to enter. Several boys are awaiting call in the Army Air Corps, quite a number are trying for the Navy V-5 program, and some are just waiting to let se¬ lective sendee take its course GHS apparently is doing its to uphold Gaston county tion for having the highes of Navy recruits in the f £?■ t North Carolina which, i furnishes more than -r at- ?

The program was opened by the singing of “God Bless America” accompanied by the band, and the invocation by Superintendent Iv. G. Phillips. After the delicious tur¬ key dinner, which was served by the teachers, the guests, including Mr. and Mrs. Ashley and Mr. and Mrs. t Phillips, were introduced. Mary Bryant then gave a recita¬ tion, and a skit was presented by several members of the band. Catherine Morrow introduced the speaker, Mr. Wade Sanders, who kept the audience laughing with his unlimited supply of jokes. s King Accepts ition In Shelby jHS has lost one of its most capable teachers to the Shelby High School. Miss King, history and ex- French teacher, left Tuesday, Jan¬ uary 25, to take up her duties as head of the history department there. She will teach American history. Miss King has taught at GHS ever since her graduation from Woman ' s College in Greensboro. In college she majored in French and minored in history. She is thor¬ oughly capable of teaching either. All of us wish Miss King the best of luck and are sorry .hat she has left us, but we are also glad to welcome back Mrs. McLean, who will take Miss King’s place. " Swami " and the Squirrel.

Over 11,000 textile items are used by our fighting forces and these are necessary as are guns, planes and ships. When peace comes, our textile products will flow again through former channels to supply the pent- up needs of civilians over the world.
