LATIN, FRENCH CLUBS PART OF CLASSES, STIMULATE INTEREST Officers of the French club were Mary Ann Goss, secretary; Buddy Caldwell, treasurer; and Camilla Hall, vice-president. Under the leadership of Mrs. Ethel Grose, the Latin Club brought the spirit of Rome to North during Latin Week. A feast with Roman dances, a " Miss Rome” contest, a Roman- A-Go-Go, and Roman singers were featured. Kathye Jones was chosen Miss Rome. Much work went into the prepara¬ tion for the banquet to which Latin Club members and teachers were invited. Dinner was served by first year Latin “slaves,” and Latin stu¬ dents entertained during the meal. Each student with one unit ' s credit in French who still studied the lan¬ guage was a member of the French club. Special programs and guest speak¬ ers stimulated interest in French culture. Students presented pro¬ grams using the French language. The Reverend Horace Hilton showed slides of his trip to Paris. French exchange students from Davidson College also lectured on French customs. Near the end of the year, the club held its traditional banquet with French food and entertainment with a French flair. Latin Club officers included: (SEATED): Vickie Watson, secretary; Donna Sharpe, treasurer. (STANDING): Shaw Smith, banquet chairman; John McFarland, president; and Larry Greene, vice-president.
