P05994 The 19.47 Pfzcayzme DAYING FOIQ T E DICAVU E Many oT The sTudenTs here aT John Greer have been won- dering aloouT The way in which The Picayune inTends To pay Tor iTseIT. There are abouT Three answers To Their quesTion: The carnival which was given in The gymnasium aT The TirsT OT The year, The Donkey BaskeTbaII Game, and The Picayune sales. The carnival, as The John Greer sTudenTs remember, was one oT The rnosT successful evenTs oT The year. The evening's program had been well-planned, and The Speech classes had cooperaTed in The preparaTions To help make iT a Iong-remem- bered occasion. There were several games, a marriage booTh, The crowning OT The king and queen oT John Greer, a reTresh- menT booTh, a side show, dancing, and a iiTTerbug conTesT. In order To parTicipaTe in The games, wiTness The side show, and voTe Tor candidaTes Tor The king and queen, TickeTs Tor each evenT were sold aT Two cenTs each. In The mosT imporTanT evenT oT The evening Gene Myers and Jean OTT were crowned king and queen. The Donkey BaskeTbaII game drew a capaciTy crowd, which Tilled The gymnasium beTore The TirsT quarTer oT The game was over. The John Greer Team played hosT To The veTerans oT World War II and an exciTing as well as humorous game was enioyed by everyone presenT. The adverTising Tor The Picayune was soliciTed by Jack Fisher, John Paul Leigh, and Roy Powley, These boys used Their Tree periods To geT The adverTisemenTs Trom The local sTores. The Picayune sales will also help Take in The needed money. Only 200 year books had been ordered aT The beginning oT The year, buT IOO more were ordered laTer so ThaT anyone who wanTed one would noT be disappoinTed.
