II From Page1 of these things seem to give us new life and encourage- ment with which to face the hardships that we may encounter through our jour- ney of life. Many times have I noticed myself as I walked through the woods, smiling at the song of the birds which sit on a branch over- head. No matter what a per- son's job may be or how tough he thinks he is, a small bird can make a change come over him and make him see the bright side of life as he should see it. The coming of Spring means the coming of Easter, the day sent aside in remem- brance of the resurredtion of our Savior This event is important to every Christian nation in the world. Little do some of us realize the signif- icance of this dff, y. To some people, Easter is a day to wear the new clothes they have bought. However, most people know that we cele- brate Easter in remem- brance of Jesus. Spring fills one's heart with vigor as he goes through his classes in school from day to day. However, I must admit that his vigor and interest are heeding the call of Nature instead of the call of his books. The moun- tain, the streams, the birds, and the fields seem to beck- on him to come to them and "hare the beauties of life ".with them. Spring also means that school will soon be out. But tet us forget the call of "Spring for the time being "and exert our energies to our school work - these few "remaining months. Let's take advantage of the opportunity we have in obtaining our education. Since Spring furnishes ener- gy for almost everything else, it may help us in our chool work - at any rate, we ihope that it will. The Hi-Lights also included a listing of St. Paul's students who made the Honor Roll that terlo.

Some things never change. Here's a tran- scription of the column writ- ten by Nell Robinso : HAVE YOU HEARD ? ? ? That a new Home Ec. Department is really being installed in St. Paul High School in the room where the Chemistry Lab used to be. It will be as near a modern home as the Home Ec. Girls and Wise County can make it. Miss Nellie Kilgore's room will be moved to the present old Home Ec. room will be tuned into the Ladies Wash Room. No. 3 on East Stone's team has a way of saying "'Have I met you before?" that causes the girls to float on air A few haven't come back to earth yet. Douglas Cunningham, Julius Evans, and Stanford Evans have been absent from school due to scarlet fever in the home. Shelby Hilton threatened to throw Madge Bellamy in the floor or out the door coming back from East Stone Friday, March 3. That all the basketball players who attended the tournament had a good time and lots of fun. We, the players, students, and facul- ty wish to express our many thanks to the G.A.A. and to those who helped in trans- portation. They were Mrs. Sid Cooper, B. H. Stallard, J. Lincoln Kiser, Charles J. Jessee, Rev. Nelson Barker, Roy Hilton, Herbert Pennington, Earl Hillman, and W. D. Richmond. Evelyn O'Dell and Terry seem to have trouble finding two seats together when they attend the show. The N.Y.A. [National Youth Administration, a Depression-era program] students had to sign state- ments in the presence of a Notary Public that they were American citizens. All aliens have been put from the relief roll. Boys and girls let's give a hearty cheer and be glad that we are American citi- zens. Try as they may, our girls could not overcome Wisse 's strong team with two trials at the tournament. Our boys had a tough time against Flat Gap and I'm sorry to say were lefl far behind in the score. Alonzo Monday has returned to school after missing three weeks due to scarlet fever. Alonzo is the only high school student who has taken this dreadful disease so far Emerson 's girlfriend gets worried if she doesn't hear from him in three weeks.
