f0RfWORD IN 1948-'49 Schools opened late in September because 'INFANTILE PARALYSIS had waged a successful campaign throughout the state of North Carolina. A new principal, WALTER GALE greeted the Seniors and after his words of welcome laid down three rules to be obeyed: No smoking, No leaving the school grounds, No going up and down the wrong steps. FOOTBALL season was already under- way before the first school bell rang, but students under sixteen were not allowed at the first game- After school started, it did not take us long to choose our cheerleaders, and our BAND was again at work. In'October,ithe North carolina STATE FAIR had a double attraction for us. We had part of the day't6 atE:iid', arid thedgiiaatest exhibit of all was PRESIDENT TRUMAN who paid a visit to our city. National and State elections were not far off. At school, in our government classes, we had a conventiortand then an election. t On that Tuesday in November we had an election in our school. On Wednesday we had radios in our classrooms to follow what proved to be the biggest political up- set of the century-HARRY SJ. TRUMAN was elected PRESIDENT. KERR SCOTT was elected GOVERNOR. In other classes we had acquired a new respect for a man by the name of Gilmartin. We foundlfthatlphysicsf solid geometry, French, Spanish, typing, shorthand, dramatics, music, Eng- lish, history, bookkeeping, mechanical drawing, industrial arts and other subjects kept us busy every- day. NEW CLUBS were- organized. Everybody belonged to-at least one of them. Organizations, such as the Social Dance Club, the Psychology Club, the Good Listening Club were new to our school. In October, we began work on the LATIPAC. Individual pictures were made in the auditorium and group pictures interrupteiour schedules for two or three days. The Hi-Times appeared on a day each month to remind us of some things in particular. So it was at THANKSGIVING and again at CHRISTMAS. Along with our work we entered .into the spirit of these seasons. We counted our blessing. We enjoyed the hurry and the rush and the excitement of getting ready for Christmas. We thought that December Q3 would never come. Every room at school was decorated for the Christmas season. In the chemistry classes, only things from the chemis- try department were allowed on the tree. In Miss Cogdell's solid geometry class, only geometrical figures were used. Both turned out to be things of beauty as well as objects of interest. january 3, 1949, found us again at school. The State Legislature was in session. Nearly every student attended a session at one time or another. Many students stopped by the museum to see the presents on display that came from the French Friendship Train. Before EXAMINATION time arrived, our BASKET- BALL team was seeing action several nights a week. This basketball team turned out to set a better record than any Raleigh basketball team ever had. The most humorous games of the year were played when the men faculty members consented to play the varsity, and the women faculty members consented to play the Girlis Athletic Association team. Februaryls biggest thrill for us was the elec- tion of the QUEEN OF HEARTS. This year we had the pleasure of seeing the president of the Senior Class crown his girl queen. We also selected our SUPERLATIVES. In the spring forty-two students left for NEW YORK. We did more than attend the Press Convention. Immediately after this trip was over, we had our SENIOR PLAY-"Mystery in Blue." March and April found music students at Meredith and Greensboro, dramatic students at Chapel Hill, and state contest were conducted here in our own school. The juniors entertained us at a dance that recalled the pleasures of the seasons in the decorations they used. Every Friday night was filled with a dance, a game, a play or something of the like. Our baseball, track, and swimming team made good records. In May we realized that we were SENIORS. We planned for the "the big Week? We filled out questionnaires, we promised not to be undignified in our caps and gowns, we wrote script for Class Night, we planned the picnicg we prepared for the Senior issue of the Hi- Times, we studied! As you turn the pages of this the I949 LATIPAC, we hope that you will live again the pleasant memo- ries of this year. 4
