T HIS is the second year that credit has been given for a class in chorus. The girls in this club are under the direction of Mrs. Luther Farris. The group sponsored a bake sale in November, which was fun besides being of financial benefit to the club. The Christmas program on December 15 was touching and beautiful under colored lights. On December 15, at 9 o ' clock, the members held a Christmas breakfast at the Home Economics Cottage. Lighted candles were used and gifts were exchanged. This is the second year that this group has presented an operetta. " The Beauty Con- test,’ by Theodosia Paynter and G. A. Grant-Schaefer, presented in March, was humorous and clever. The music was catchy, tuneful, and different. The entire Chorus Club took part in this performance. The girls took part in the Spring Carnival and added much to its beauty. The Mother ' s Day Tea at the Home Economics Cottage was a delightful affair. Each girl presented a red carnation to her mother before the program. The recital given in May was an unusual affair. Many different types of songs were used. For the first group the girls wore white robes; for the second group they were dressed as typical Americans from the different sections of the country; for the last group of sentimental ballads evening dress was worn. In addition to the many social activities, the members of the Chorus Club learned to work together as a team, to cooperate, to sight read, and to watch tone quality and volume. Page fifty

I HE Boys ' Hi-Y club, the only boys ' organization in the school which stands tor Christian fellowship, had a busy year helping the school to prosper. At the beginning of the year, Johnny Rollins was elected president with Mr. Raymond Cure, sponsor. Other officers were Bobby Painter, secretary and Bates Pauley, treasurer. In the past two years, more than twenty members of the Hi-Y have entered the Armed Forces. We highly honor them. For several years it has been the duty of the Hi-Y to raise and lower the flag each day. This was continued this year. Meetings were held every other Thursday, and the members attended church in a body the following Sunday. Pennants of orange and black were sold by the Hi-Y to encourage school spirit. This was a great success. At the end of the school year the Hi-Y will leave a gift as a token of appreciation to the school. The gift will be determined by the financial status of the club. On March 16, the Boys ' Hi-Y held a Saint Patrick ' s Day dance, for which the gym was decorated in green and white paper. This dance was enjoyed by the school and by several parents who attended. page forty-nine

The dance was well attended and was one thaf will be long remembered. The girls were very fortunate indeed to have such a charming and capable sponsor as Miss Nettie Bowers. The success of the year ' s work was largely due to her untiring leadership and understanding. The Spring Carnival theme for this year was Spring. The girls were dressed in pastel evening dresses and the boys in tuxedos. The entertainment was supplied by the Boys ' Glee Club, the Girls ' Chorus Club, and Court. page fifty-one
