,Xlthough we agree with Byron when he says,
""l'is pleasant sure to sce onc's name in print.
A books a hook although there's nothing in't."
yet that is not our only purpose in publishing this
annual. XVe want a recorcl of our achievements anal
failures, too, in high school, and we feel that it will
always he pleasant to have this hook to recall teach-
ers and classmates to our affections. XVe cau't
hear to leave the old high school without taking
with us some reminder of the days we spent here,
something to which we can turn back and try to
imagine the olcl days with us once more. So.
though very imperfect, this hook will always he
clear to us because of the memories it recalls.

Mrss AMY CALDWELL MISS SARAH LESLEY
what they have meant to us but it will be one of the dear
est memories of our high-school days that our first Annual
was dedicated to them. They have been our inspiration-our
friends, as well as our teachers. They are symbolic of the ideal-
ism of our high-school life, and yet are never too busy or too de-
tached to help us with our simple, practical problems. Because
of them we take with us into the larger life of college or business
affairs ideals which we could never have formed without their
guidance. Their magnetic personalities and gentle dignity have
made us love them as we could love few people. Their well-con-
sidred advice and their sympathetic smiles have added a new
charm to school and given us that feeling of comradeship for them
which has been one of the most delightful of our experiences.
The diflicult position of directing high-school affairs and
solving many, many problems-technical and moral-has been
Miss Lesley's lot. Kindly, sympathetic, a source of inspiration, a
Christian worthy the name, she has been able to hold the affections
of all the high-school pupils, with some of whom she has had
little personal contact. She can always see our point of view and
never expects the unreasonable of us. How then can we help re-
specting her opinions and loving her as we do?
Miss Caldwell, though jealously claimed by others, We feel to
be our own particular treasure. She has been intimately con-
nected with all the undertakings of our class and has been our
constant source of strength. A large part of the credit for our
Annual is due her, for she has worked tirelessly and faithfully to
make it possible for us. The Senior play, the operetta, and any-
thing else which has interested us has claimed a large share of
her time. The strength and nobility of her character have called
forth our admiration, and the beauty and charm of her person-
ality, our love. Poet, author, and guide-a friend whom many
of us place near to our mothers-our own Miss Caldwell!
0 tribute to Miss Caldwell and Miss Lesley can ever express

lligniiied, quiet, unassuming, a talented
musician, an accomplished reader, an excel-
lent studentfsuch is Margaret. Her gentle
manners have won her many friends among
us, XYQ wonder how, with a full high school
course, violin, piano, and expression, she can
keep her grades in the nineties: but she does
it. We predict for her a great future.

The loveliest of girls and the most sympa-
thetie of friends, but not quite self-assertive
enough. Conscientious not only about her
school work, but even about her most tritiing
promise, she is a girl that you can not help
aclmiring. "Kit" is just a little bit afraid of
being too "steady" so she's up to all kinds of
pranks to belie her reputation. Call her
wicked or anything else you like-she won't
object-but dare not call her dependable.

"Tn be glad of life bcfazzsv if gi-ws you rr

Susan, more affectionately known as
"Sue," with her ready smile and winning
ways, has won for herself quite a host of
friends among' her classmates, and, indeed,
among the whole High School. One does
not have to he with her long to decide that
her motto must he, "Laugh and the world
laughs with you." XN'hat would we have
done all these years without our quaint, jolly
little classmate, "Sue"?

Lena is one of our "little" girls. Unless
she takes to French heels and pompadours
we are afraid she'll never be able to convince
the world a few years hence that she is of
voting age. But when she does cast her vote
we know that she will make it count for
good sense and justice. for she carries a
whole head, if not a high one. She is a pillar
of the Domestic Science Department and will

seems to he his motto and he often proves

And, indeed, that describes one side of
Bertha's nature well. But it must also be

LXBORTXTORY-New Bern High School.
GPIQRATORS-The best Faculty ever.
PURPOSE-To send forth a finished product to the world after four years
of labor-a product upon which the operators could look with pride.
MATERIAT.-Unlimited quantity of unusually green Freshmen.
APP.XR.eXTUS-The high-school curriculum.
In the latter part of September, 1917, the operators gathered into the
laboratory the material, and viewed with amazement its countless numbers.
The result of this observation was the division of the material into two equal
parts. One part was placed under the supervision of Mr. R. S. Britton, and
the other under Miss Lulu NValker. Mr. Britton, Division I's "first man
teacher," caused some fermentation in the hearts of the romantically in-
clined females. There was no counteraction to neutralize the thrill produced
by being addressed as "Miss Katherine" and "Miss Jane." Division H went
through the process of fermentation from quite a different cause. A "woman
teacher," however interesting, was no novelty. and Division H felt cheated.
Although the material was green, it showed an aptitude for overcoming
this objectionable quality. It learned that it was no longer a "grade," but
a "class" As a result of this. officers were elected and dues collected. Hand
in hand with this came the Thrift Society, flourishing in spite of its burden-
some cognomen of "iXutocracy lQxtinguishers," to aid the government in its
struggle with Germany.
One of the most potent explosions during the course of the whole ex-
periment occurred at this time. Mr. Britton accused the class of being
sleepy-headed! The class retaliated with a set of sarcastic resolutions, which
were written on the blackboard anonymously. The class has suffered ever
since with a violent case of "school spirit." No one has ever been given the
opportunity of repeating the charge.
Thus gloriously ended Part I of the experiment.
Tif t. Gears
The class entered into the second part of the work whole-heartedly. It
was in a state of stable equilibrium. Nothing could jar its happy existence.
It was at this time that our beloved Miss Caldwell was given to us. The
class was placed under her care. It was a group of perfectly natural Sopho-
displaying a line scorn for Juniors, an awesome respect for Seniors,
utter contempt for Freshmen.
Thus the year sped by. Happy is the class whose annals are few!
Because much of the material had been captured by other laboratories,
the remainder was united. Now we were one and invincible, and thus better
able to shoulder the responsibilities of a successful junior Class. The happy-
go-lucky existence of the Sophomore year was left behind. The boys took
the athletics into their hands, and produced winning teams. .Xt Christmas
time there was a Junior-Senior party, the hrst social event in the history of
the class. The Christmas party having been so successful, the epicurean
Juniors dug from the ancient past jolly tales of Junior-Senior banquets. Fol-
lowing the precedent set by the Class of l9l5, but which had been abandoned
during the war time, the Juniors entertained the departing Seniors of the
Class of '20 on the night before their graduation.
Thus festiyely ended the third part.
The class began work on September 27, 1920, to begin the concluding
part of the experiment. The time had been spent so profitably and so hap-
pily that it was hard for the members to realize that they were now approach-
ing the final analysis.
The class began work with a determination to make this last year the big-
gest year of all. Xyithgthelgomise of the Faculty to ltelpf encouraging
them, they daredio undeigtalge the publication of an ininal copy of an annual.
They found when the actual work began that this was a gigantic iiiitleijifkiff
financially as well as in other ways, yet they did not confine their energy to
. . . b.
this one effort. Members of the class were to be found on the football team,
alt a Gears
including the captain g the girls on the basket-ball team, the boys on the basket-
ball team, including the captain, and many on the baseball team.
The class supplied three of the leading characters and a third or more of
the chorus in the operetta "Snow XVhite and the Seven Dwarfs," presented
on March 2nd by the high school.
And still they kept their grades high, giving the Junior Class a race for
the loving cup.
XYith the class engaged in these varied activities the fourth part of the
experiment worked itself to a close.
.Xs the Class of '21 leaves the High School it takes with it many of the
most' powerful athletes and many of its finest and most influential students.
Have the efforts, then, of an untiring superintendent and a faithful corps of
teachers been in vain?
XVe, the members of the Class of '21, leave the New Bern High School
with the determination to prove in the years to come to those who have so
greatly aided us here that we have appreciated their faith in us, their en-
couragement when we were downcast, their sympathy with our lighter moods.
and their unceasing labors in our behalf.

NE fateful XVednesday the Senior Class of 1921, being, 'like
3 . the ancient Romans, unwilling to break a precedent, decided
to celebrate Children's Day. lVe took solemn vow and
I promise that we would-yea, every one of us-come to school
:QM RATE attired as young children-or rather as young fools, accord-
ing to the opinion of our honored superintendent. Young
ladies removed tangles and time-worn rats from their ears and exposed those
delicate organs of hearing to the winter blasts and the cruel stares of an out-
raged public. As is always the case in the vicissitudes of this world, some
benefited and some lost by the change. Young gentlemen took leave of the
pride of their lives-long trousers-and donned the scorned knickerbockers.
That the "early bird catches the worm" was true on that memorable day-for
the early arrivals sat back and laughed at their suffering classmates as they
entered the door. The only revenge that the aforesaid suffers could hope for
was that "he who laughs last laughs best." Two of the most distinguished
children of that day were Master Guion Thomas and Master Rudolph Jack-
son. lfVith green ties and their hair parted in the middle, they made very
"bright, smart-looking little boys." Master jackson in class meeting had
told us to be sure not to forget to come "dressed," but, having so many other
weightier responsibilities, he forgot it himself. The public opinion of the
class, however, forced him to return home and remedy this oversight. Master
Nixon Mcllwean likewise presented a striking figure that day. Since whims
are allowable in children, the other classes marched in first and gave us the
unexampled privilege of making a grand entrance into chapel "amid bursts of
applauseu-caused doubtless by our noble appearance. XVe took our time-
honored seats near the front and conducted ourselves in a way proper to
"Baby Seniors." In fact, we were so pleased with ourselves that we con-
templated repeating the performance, but gentle hints told us that "you can
be a child but once."

Prophecy of Class of 1921
New BERN, N. C., june 10, 19-ll.
IVDICAR li.x'1'11I5R1NE: I
You see, I am keeping my promise that I'd write to you twenty years
after our graduation night, so that I could let you know what our classmates
are doing. I'll say before I start that the ensuing only goes to prove tlfat
"you never can tell."
XVould you have thought that Polly Duffy would ever be an operatic star?
lVell, she is. She only had to study music abroad for about five vears before
she was ready to return to .Xmerica to make her debut. The whole country
has gone wild about her singing. She is quite famous both at home and
Our class has produced another singer also. Thats Lycurgus Cutler.
I-Ie has a marvelous voice and he takes Bill lierebee around with him as his
accompanist. I always thought Lycurgus had a good voice, but I didn't know
Bill would ever be a performer of anything except mischief.
I always knew Ernest Moore would do something in the chemical line.
He has made quite a fortune by the manufacture of a patent medicine he
invented. lfarl McGowan is his sales manager, and I'm sure that's one reason
he has sold so much, because, if I remember Earl right, he could talk you into
As you doubtless know, Bessie McDaniel was married to a rich man
shortly after she left High School. lVell, she got tired of him and divorced
him. She is now the most dashing young divorcee you could ever imagine.
She has about fifty worshippers on her string at the same time. It's really
quite amusing to see Bessie and her menagerie promenading down the street.
I almost died when I found out what john .Iennette's occupation is. My
dear. he's a chef! I-Ie's with one of the biggest hotels in the country-but a
chef just the same. Can't you picture John, fat and forty, wearing a dear
little white cap and apron, standing over a hot stove. I'm almost overcome
with mirth every time I think about him in this connection. It is too much
-what art' my classmates coming to?
it s Citrate
Annie Shipp hnally became disgusted with the male sex and decided to
go into the country to live. Annie living in the country and doing her own
housework is funny enough, but Annie doing her own housework, living in
the country, and looking after her two adopted children is too much. Did
you ever think she'd do any one of the three things, much less all three?
At last Nixon Mcllwean has mastered French. He is the adored French
professor in the largest college for women in America. NVho would have
Do you remember all those crazy drawings Helen Hollister used to
concoct in school. Frankly speaking, they were awful then, but she is now
a great artist. She lives in Bohemia now with Minnie Scales, and they are
the "Bohemiest" of the Bohemians in New York City. Minnie is a poet.
Billy Guion has overcome his perpetual illness and the stiffness of his
hjintsl' and is now an instructor of physical education. I didn't know he
could so far unloose himself. It's really very remarkable.
Margaret Aman went to Italy to complete her course in music. Wfhile
there she met and married Count Sperlingo von Thomico. He is the richest
man in Europe. They are now the social lions. Can you imagine lXIargaret's
Cecil lVIcGinn is a missionary. He is now stationed in Africa. I don't
believe I'll ever be able to realize that Cecil can teach anybody anything ex-
cept how to be funny.
Lucile Meredith is editor of a magazine called fIdz'z'c'0 to 1110 L0'Z'c'SI'C'l3.
I was sure Lucile would be an actress, but she fooled me by acquiring a literary
turn of mind. Bertha Dickinson has become the actress, however, and that
fooled me equally as much.
Laura Smith is no longer the quiet little maid of High-School days. She
is known on Broadway as "Laurina," and is a toe-dancer.
You wouldn't know "Uncle" Thomas now. He is a U. S. Senator and
wry dignified. I saw him last winter, and he didn't seem like the same per-
son. He's still a bachelor.
Ruth Dixon and Saunders Davis have both become Math. professors.
Saunders has also written some Geometry text-books.
Sue Brown is a naturalist. Her specialty is worms. She is making
good, and has really done some wonderful things in this branch of study.

Chauncey Nelson is a designer of ladies' wearing apparel. He has an
exclusive shop in New York City, and is widely known because of his beauti-
ful French Q' ?J creations. Reba Ferebee is one of his chief designers, Eliza-
beth Wfillauer his chief model, and Swannie Smith his secretary.
Sybil Dean XVilson is a preacher's wife. I imagine she makes a good
one, because she always was rather serious-minded.
Hazel Oelhoff is by profession a lawyer, but at present she is touring the
country giving lectures on the "New Wfomanf'
Katherine Voltz, Mattie Joyner, Lolita Thalley, and Gladys Sexton own
and run the biggest hotel in town. It's a big one, too: nothing like those we
boasted in the year 1921. Vlfe are really a big city now.
Mary Belo Moore is an author. Her books have a religious air. but
they're really very interesting.
Rexford Wfillis is a country preacher. Did you think he'd ever choose
that for a lifetime job? I would have thought of everything else first. I
heard that he had been married, but I don't know to whom. g
Lena Bryant is a spiritualist. Can you imagine anything queerer? .
never gave Lena credit for being such a deep person, but you never can tell.
Carljones' occupation is something sinhrlar to Lenafs. He manufactures
a device on the same order as the ouija board.
Ruth Edwards is a shining light as an art critic, but Ruth always was
the b1'z'g1itc'st member of our class.
Rudolph Jackson and Theodore Gaskins are running an aeroplane garage.
They didn't even have such things during our High-School days.
Now for you, Katherine, how much longer do you expect to be in China?
I don't see how you have stood it for fifteen years. Can you really teach
those children anything? I can't realize you are a governess and have a posi-
tion with the royal family.
As for me, I'm still just Jane. Although I am nearly forty, I still have
my good times. Iilll often accused of being a husband-hunter, but the sweet
and simple life is not for me.
That's all of us, Katherine. W1'ite to me soon and let me know yhat
you think of us.
Always with love,

I stood on the green at recess
A little after eleven,
As the sun rose o'er the city
To its zenith in the heaven.
.Xnd like the sunbeams dancing
Upon the morning air
My thoughts came tripping o'er me-
.X thing that's very rare.
How often, O how often,
In the days that had gone hy

And gazed on that sunlit sky!
How often, O how often.

The hours and hours at recess
On that old green I'd spent.
There were times when I was restless
And my life was full of care,
And the lessons portioned out to me
Seemed anything but fair.
Again-I was all ecstasy.
My soul was all delight,
And the sunshine that pervaded me
Made everything look bright.
But forever and forever-
As long as the lmig sun shines, .
As long as we like athletics.
As long as man still dines,
There must come an end to all things.
Some time the race is run,
And onward to a higher goal
Another race begun.
But the green with its horde of rememb'rances,
When its image shall appear,
NVill stand as a symbol of friendships
And the love we enjoyed here.

ninety of us. All the girls in the inevitable white middy suit and the boys in
their Sunday best. The poor Seniors who were off on one side of the plat-
form were hardly noticed. This was our auspicious entrance into the New
Bern High School.
As Freshmen, we won three of the live medals open to us. Otherwise
we were as meek and inconspicuous as the size of our class would allow.
ln our Sophomore year we let folks know that we were up and doing
by giving a very successful Christmas cantata.
Now there are only sixty-one of us left. At present we are murdering
Czesar and hope soon to get our hands on Cicero.
lYe'ye succeeded in giving our august Seniors several bumps from their
perch of superiority this year. First by winning the boys' interclass basket-
ball championship, and then by walking off with the "cup" three of the four
times it has been ollfered. Our girls were not so successful with their basket-
ball team. though we contributed two of the tive on the regular team. Foot-
ball couldn't possibly have gotten along without us,

we will be able to receive the honors that are sure to come with that perfect
composure which is the result of much experience.

f 1 HE first division of the Sophomore Class is very proud of its
class record. Not long .after school started the class or-
ganized and elected a president, secretary, and treasurer. The
president is Lillian Davis: secretary, Bertha Thalleyg and
treasurer, Redmond Dill. Vlfeekly class meetings are held
E iM'4'q515Ni regularly, and this helps the members of the class to learn
the spirit of teamwork. The colors of the class are old rose and gray, and
the Hower is a pink rose. The class motto is "'Lczb01' Omvzia VZ'1ZCl'f.U For
several months the class has come Within a fraction of a point of winning the
cup offered to the class that has the highest median. As yet we have not ob-
tained the cup, but that isn't saying that we .
are losing hope. NVe are determined to get
that cup and are putting forth a mighty ef-
fort to do so. Even Mary Davenport and
Genoa Thomas are thinking about studying
their lessons. XVhen the 1921 Red Cross
drive was launched ours was the only 100
per cent class in High School. Two mem-
bers of our class are on the girls' basket-
ball team. They are Genoa Thomas and
Roxie Dickinson. One member of the class,
Redmond Dill, is on the boys' basket-ball
team, and also the football team.

Freshman Class History
FTIER passing oxer the rocky road of grammar school we
Ayih i, have at least reached the High School. As the annual was
,J 4, 3, W' . . - .
M A Ld Jublished for our snecial beneht. ours being the onl f class to
ff le kt . . . , C
5, have an annual published in its l'reshman year, we have been
Xrfsij asked to write a history of our class.
fl? ugly - -
Our colors are green and white: our flower, the white
rose, and our motto, "Aim High." These were given to us by the Senior
Class of 1920, so I guess we will have to take them whether we want to or not.
At the beginning of the year we had Miss XVilson for our room teacher,
but she was taken away from us because her two most devoted pupils often
got their names mixed and did things for which she couldn't correct them
because of her devotion to them.
After examinations were over two little refugees from Miss Saunders'
room came to us. XVe took them under our protection and they have been
with us ever since.
Snap-shots of our chapel program have been taken and have been put
into the annual.
Our musician is Theophilus Joyce: our artist. Royston Blandford: and
our cartoonist, Louis Howard. Gur president is Margaret Armstrong.
YVe have been trying for the cup all this year, and if it wasn't for our
median we would surely get it.
To break the monotony of school, every now and then we have a pro-
gram directed and produced by Miss Babbitt, our teacher, Albert Uzzell, and
We hope that this annual will be a big success, and that the Freshman
Class of 1925 will, about this time of the year, be writing a class history for
the annual that will be published by the Senior Class of 1925.

The l-ligh School Orchestra
HE High-School Orchestra is at present composed of one
piano, two violins, two cornets, and two drums. This year's
orchestra might almost be called the Senior Qrchestra, so
X U X . . r . .
Gfzw ncja well is the Senior Llass represented-for the pianist, one
:Qxly lffj violinist, and one cornetist are all members of the Senior
Class. No other class in High School can boast of so large
a representation in the orchestra.
It is the duty, as well as the pleasant privilege, of the orchestra to play
for the High School to march in and out of the chapel on XVednesday morn-
ings, also before, between acts, and after all entertainments of any kind given
in the auditorium. It must also be said tto the credit of the orchestral that
it has had the very great pleasure of furnishing the music for several ban-
quets, receptions, and entertainments not directly connected with the school.
Among these outside activities upon which the members of the orchestra will
always look back with the most pleasant thoughts were the banquet at which
the New Bern Rotary Club received its charter, the banquet held in honor
of the Daughters of the Confederacy, and the reception given by the "old"
teachers at the "Gem" to the "new" ones.
Although the quality of the work of the orchestra has not been of the
very highest order, which is probably due to causes over which the members
have not had control, nevertheless the orchestra has accomplished a good deal
this year. The fact that it has been able to do anything worthy of mention
is due almost entirely to the untiring efforts and able assistance of Professor
Bourdelaisg whatever praise the orchestra has merited at any time during
the year the credit is due to him. For all that Professor Bourdelais has done
for the orchestra we feel deeply grateful.

Review of Football Season
u-xiii HIS year our football season began with the best coach in
the State and a bunch of entirely raw material, for this is
the first time in many years that New Bern High School has
played football. The first afternoons were not so en-
couraging, for there were only fifteen men out, but by the
E last of the first week we had thirty men out, and they came
out for the rest of the season. After several weeks of intensive training we
won our first game from NVashington High School with a score of 35-O.
The next Friday the football team went to Kinston and defeated that well-
nigh invincible eleven to the tune of 21-O. The next game was played in
the championship series. This was another game with Kinston, played in
New Bern. We defeated them a second time, 52-O. A week later we de-
feated Bobby Burn's fiying squadron from Fayetteville, 35-O. The most
conspicuous character in this game was our faithful friend, Dr. Joseph Pat-
terson, who was kept busy reviving enough Fayetteville men to keep the game
going. Un Thanksgiving we journeyed to VVilmington to put them out of
the race, but fate was against us. ln the first quarter we made fourteen
points. One of these touchdowns was made by our captain, jennette. who
made a beautiful eighty-yard run. During the second quarter, after our
captain had been put out of the game by a sprained ankle. Vylilinington made
thirteen points. The beginning of the second half saw our spunky captain
back in the fray working to the best of his ability in spite of his pain. ln
the last quarter VVilmington made the last touchdown. NVe were defeated
after a hard ight by a score of 20-14. The Vtfilmington squad was the only
one that scored on us during the whole season. This game concluded our
season. VVe feel that our wonderfully successful season was due to our
coach, Mr. Barden, and to the hearty support of the people and newspapers
of the city of New Bern.

This it not by any means a complete list of the men who worked hard
last fall and contributed toward the success of the team.
In order to make a complete list. the "Scrubs" must be added. They
fought hard and on less encouragement than the varsity. Some of them
knew they could not make the varsity team, but were interested in making a
good team and in making those who claimed a "varsity" berth work to hold
it. The Scrubs are as follows: McGowan, Dixon, Morton, Styron, Fere-

neyed down to take another game away from us. A few changes had been
made in our team and the Athletic tossers went down to defeat to the tune
of 21 to 33.
The New Bern quint had little trouble defeating the Jacksonville "five"
the following Friday night at the Dill Vifarehouse by a score of 39 to 5. In
the middle of the first half Coach Barden sent the second team in.
On the following Friday Vanceboro journeyed down to play New Bern,
and was defeated by a score of 51 to 9. The game was easy and New Bern
High had the game from the hrst whistle to the last. During the second half
Coach Barden again sent the second team in.
New Bern went to Vanceboro on the following Vlfednesday and defeated
the Farm Life team by a score of 35 to ll. The lights were bad, making
New Bern slow and ragged, but New Bern's teamwork proved too strong for
Our next game was with our old rival, Greenville, the first game for the
championship of liastern North Carolina. The New Bern quint determined
to take the first game. The contest was fast and snappy. Dill, Simpson,
and Wfillis all had an up for the basket. Thomas and Iennette were excellent
as guards. Shipp and jackson were substituted for Dill and Thomas in the
last few minutes of the game. The last half ended 47 to ll in New Bern's
Our next game for the Eastern honors was with Belhaven. The Bel-
haven quint was confident of the game, but New Bern gave them the sur-
prise of their life by defeating them by a score of 42 to 14. Captain Wfillis
and Simpson starred at the basket and Jennette at guard.

The following Friday the New Bern "five" journeyed over to Goldsboro
to play Freemont. The New Bern boys felt a little shaky, while the Free-
monters were confident of victory. New Bern won by a score of 36 to 16.
Captain XVillis and Simpson were stars at the basket and Thomas and Jen-
nette fought hard to keep the ball in our territory. Dill worked hard with
XVil1is and Simpson, and later was relieved by Shipp, who did equally as well.
Jackson was substituted for Thomas.
Our next game for Eastern honors was with Benson in Goldsboro. VVe
knew nothing about Benson, and they knew nothing about us, so neither was
confident of the game. The New Bern quint played their worst game, but
defeated Benson, 3-1 to 15. This entitled us to a trip to Chapel Hill. The
squad had worked long for this trip.
Un the following night the New Bern "five" went out on the Bynum
"gym" floor at the University to play Chapel Hill High for the Eastern cham-
pionship. The game was fast and snappy, but New Bern could not match
with the weight and height of the Chapel Hill boys. New Bern outplayed
them in every respect. Captain XVillis, Simpson. Shipp, Dill, and Foy fought
hard to keep the New Bern quint in the lead. but were not able to do so. be-
cause of the fouling of Chapel Hill. Thomas, Jennette, and Jackson fought
equally hard at guards trying to keep the ball out of the opponents' terri-
tory, but the height of the Chapel Hill boys gave them the advantage. The
game ended 30 to 21 in Chapel Hi11's favor.

The Girls' Basket-Ball Season
f fy Hli girls opened their basket-ball season this year by a series
of class tournaments, held on December l-lth, 15th, and 16th.
.Xs a result of these the championship of the High School
was awarded to the Senior Class.
Our first game with a neighboring town was played
E 'M'A' i'fF E against Dover, December 17th, on our home court. The
game was a victory for us, most of our points being won through fouls. Qui'
second game was with Wfilson on the foreign court. Our defeat in this in-
stance was checlcmated by our victory when they returned this game February
25th. XVilson plays a quick, clean game, and their referee, Mr. Blackburn.
is as good as their team. We always enjoy playing XVilson, whether we win
We have played NYilmington three times, and they have always been
the victors. Our last game, on March -lth, the first game in the champion-
ship series, was the hardest fought game of our season. A
On .Ianuary 2lst we defeated La Grange on their home court. XVe have
two victories over the Goldsboro team. likewise two over Greenville.
XVe played liinston on February lOth, but, partly because of the inferior
court and poorly lighted warehouse, we lost more heavily than in any other
de feat suffered by us.
Our team this year is entirely new with the exception of one guard, who
played on the team last year. Due to the interest and hard work on the part
of Miss Gwynn, our coach, we have made a very creditable record.
Our captain, Sarah Spencer, was the highest individual scorer, making
lol? of our 311 points.

It has long been the custom of the New Bern High, as
well as of most other high schools, to organize one or more
literary societies in order to give students practice in public
speaking. These literary societies. when not obligatory, did not include the
student body as a whole, and when compulsory, the members were little inter-
ested, because they felt this work was forced upon them. The great funda-
mental fault with this method, however, was the lack of individual effort, and,
consequently, a lack of initiative and interest so necessary to make such an
organization a success.
The scheme devised by the New Bern High School has overcome these
ditiiculties, and, in terms of slang, has been a "howling success', up to the pres-
ent time. The plan is for each grade from the Senior Class through the
seventh grade to arrange a program which they present in turn each Vtfednes-
day at our chapel period. This arrangement taxes the ingenuity of the classes
to the utmost. and consequently programs of remarkable originality and
The spirit of competition aroused by this plan causes a resultant spirit
of class pride which simply will not submit to being surpassed by another
Perhaps the most unique program submitted this year was the "human
piano," by the Junior Class. Indeed, our superintendent has advised that
grade to get a patent on their invention, and as a money-making scheme of
the wild-cat variety it is probably without a peer. The piano consisted of
a number of human heads. The black keys were skillfully blackened mascu-
line faces and the white ones were feminine faces of the natural hue. barring
rouge, face powder, nose enamel, etc. The pianist skillfully executed the
scale, "Polly-XVolly-lDoodle," and several other selections on this very novel
piano, and every one enjoyed the performance to the utmost.

Another interesting program was presented by the Sophomore Class.
This was a play which the class adapted from "The Birds Christmas Carol."
It was beautifully rendered, and showed us how much happiness can be given
tothe poor by a little kindness.
The seventh grades also offered excellent programs. The first section
gaye a very humorous debate, "RcsoI'z'c4l, That Mrs. Rip Yan XYinlqle was
perfectly justified in quarreling with her husband." The arguments on both
sides were very forcible. and it was only after much consideration that thc
judges decided in favor of the afhrmatiye side. The second division of the
grade presented the play "Betsy Ross and the First Flag" in memory of XYash-
ington's birthday. Both programs were highly commendable, and showed
that next year's Freshmen will take a leading place in the High School literary

five people of the two hunclrecl in High School could possibly win. Most of
us have felt that it was of no use to try. as there have always been several
pupils of exceptional abilities who make very high grades. This year, how-
ever, a plan was clevisefl by the faculty which interests all. A very hanclsome
silver cup is given to the class which attains the highest meclian. This class
keeps the cup only as long as it holcls first place. The new plan makes each
pupil feel that he owes it to his class to work harcler than he ever has before.

she says she will not come on the date at first appointed, but will let them
know when she is coming. Sallie receives the telegram at the door, and,
as the other girls think she is out, she decides that she will not tell them of
the late telegram, but will herself dress up and play ohf as the aunt. For a
while she carries out her plan successfully, then the real Aunt Merry comes
in, is mistaken for a dressmaker, and quite a number of complications arise.
Finally the mother of the girls, who has been away on a trip, suddenly
returns and straightens things out. Aunt Merry gives everybody a great
shock by asking Sallie right on the spot to go with her to Europe.

SCENES FROM "SNOW WHITE"
SCENES FROM HSNOVV VVHITE
it s eos
Q51 N March 2nd a group of High-School pupilsivery ably pre-
, r. sented the operetta "Snow Xvllllf and the Seven Dwarfs'
5 in the Cirithn Auditorium, afternoon and evening.
The operetta is simple but beautiful, lending itself easily
:QM XQTE to adaptation by amateurs. And it was charmingly pre-
ugyl' 30 sented by these High-School students.
The stage setting was perfect. Immediately upon presentation the au-
dience felt the enchantment of the wood scene. The home of the seven
dwarfs, so splendidly set, called to mind the beautiful fairy tale of one's child-
hood which was being made so real. Throughout the play the characters
merited greatest applause.
Miss Jane Dill, as Snow XYhite, captivated her audience with her acting
and her sweet soprano voice. She was radiant in her wedding costume.
Miss Zora Styron was wonderful in her role of the wicked queen, giving
a delightful interpretation to the part.
Gwen Guion Thomas, as the prince and hero, did splendid work and
gained the admiration of the audience.
Rudolph Jackson played the part of Carl, the hunstman, and merited
highest praise for the manner in which he played his part.
The seven dwarfs, llenjamin Moore, lfdeep llellamah, Lee Reed, Charles
llibbard, Carl Chadwick, .Xlfred liafer, and Salem Nassef. won loud ap-
plause, showing the appreciation by the audience of the excellent way in
which they acted their parts.
The chorus. consisting of forty boys and girls and the Sunshine Fairies,
supported by Miss lXlary .Xyers, Sunshine: Miss Sara Elizabeth Cutler, Dawng
and Miss Vivian Peterson, Twilight, did splendid work. Their costumes
were artistic and the sylvan setting presented an enchanting scene.
Much of the success of the operetta is due to the untiring efforts of
Misses Caldwell and Hurt, who trained the players, and to Mrs. VV. G.
Ilayes, the pianist.
The costumes for the principal characters were rented from a costumer,
but those of the dwarfs and the members of the chorus were made under the
direction of Miss Gertrude Smith, teacher of domestic science.

You must not laugh. nor talk, nor cry,
