SEVENTH GRADE FIELD TRIP
The seventh grade is working out a unit in
the history of Valley View. Monday Mr.
Gregg and the class visited an old cemetery near the home of Ernest
Switzer. The cemetery is located on a
slope in the edge of the timber at Spring Creek. Four marked graves were found and two
definitely located. The pupils cleared
the brush and grass from two graves and made mounds on them. The girls had a few flowers which they placed
on the graves. On one broken marble
stone was the name M. W. Mann. Carved
nicely on a marble slab was Virginia Harrison, died
The P. T. A. is again offering pictures in the attendance contest – one picture for the lower grades and one for the high school classes. The picture is to go to the room or class which has the most adults present at a given meeting. So urge your parents and neighbors to attend each of these meetings.
FOOTBALL BOYS WORK OUT WITH SANGER
In the scrimmage with the Sanger team here Wednesday afternoon, everyone found out that he was “punk”. On the defense Coach said that we did fairly well, but that we made a poor showing on the offense. The boys did not show much fighting determination. They did not “hold that line,” charging was not firm enough, was not low enough, nor was it fast enough.
The scrimmage was a great help to both
boys and coach. The faults of the team were
shown up and they hope to rectify those faults – “iron them out” so to speak –
before the first game on the 27th with
Some of the boys have been stricken with colds and are not able to do much playing this week. Those are Junior McCollum, Jack Highfill, and Royce Dale Miller. Herbert Myers and Junior McCuistion are out because of work.
Lately most of the work has been done on plays and blocking.
ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE APPOINTED
Willie Pearl Wilkerson, Carrie Sue Aughtry, and Marse Anderson with the help of Mrs. Edge were appointed last Friday to plan the assembly programs for each Wednesday. This committee will have charge of each program and if anyone wishes to be on it, please see one of the committee or Mrs. Edge on Monday morning at .
The program Wednesday, according to the
new plan, was in the form of a radio program.
Marse Anderson was announcer of the
following: Songs, “Lulu’s Back in Town”
and “In My Song of Love” by Margaret Lowe.
Piano duet, “On the Isle of Caprie”
by Willie B. McCuistion and Yvonne Lowery.
Mr. Brown had some of the football boys to go through some plays and also explained several things which we did not know about football.
Margaret Lowe and Norma Jean Mallicote led while everyone yelled for the team.
Mr. Gregg mad an announcement which concluded the program for Wednesday morning.
All I know is what I see and hear on the campus. Well, folks, may I have a few minutes of your time to chat so that we both might learn something? The football season opens this week, and every team is busy preparing themselves for many a hard fight – a hard fight at that. The Eagles have been putting in good time working out. Their coach, Mr. Brown, is working very hard with the boys, and he says he has some fine material with which to work. They have organized the team and started off right. Boys, don’t forget that it is not who wins or who loses, but how you play the game that counts.
You should see Mr. Gregg play football, and Mrs. Edge says that they have changed the rules somewhat since she played.
Commercial is being taught in the school this year. In my opinion it is a wonderful subject. Although everyone cannot be a lawyer, yet he should know something about law. Mr. Brown is our instructor, and the class does not think he can be beaten.
Mildred Rose has just returned form
Well, folks, I am crowded for space, but I want someone to show J. R. Smith where the study hall is.
Any high school student who will in any way help on the “Double V” staff will please file your application with Mrs. Edge at once.
Mary had a little lamb
She put in on the shelf
And everytime it wagged its tail
It spanked its little self.
Mrs. Edge called on those in English III that had written a story for the first paragraph in the assignment to stand and read. I proudly stood and not until I had finished did I realize that I had written about the last paragraph! Boy! Was my face let!
The scavenger hunt out at E[?] last Friday night must have been a dilly from all indications. I wonder if Mr. Gregg realizes the fact.
In civics class the following conversation was heard.
Louise: Miss Callie, the flies [?] just eating me up.
Marse: They are in the wrong [?].
Ask on of our seniors how she likes the A. and M. College boys.
The following incident occurred in Spanish II;
Billye Sue; Mr. Brown, I don’t know beans about this.
Mr. Brown: Well, you had better learn beans and onions both for Je[?] said he like them.
We wonder if any of the students are troubled with insomnia around in the morning.
A sentence put on the board in one of the English classes read as follows; The boy and girl are brothers.

Our textbooks are issued to us by the state. We should be glad that the state lends these to us and that we do not have to buy all of our books. Some of us are not very appreciative of this favor bestowed upon us by the state. Some boys and girls abuse the books. Because of these few, the state has to buy new books every few years. This money which the state uses to buy books every few years could be used to improve the schools. We should appreciate our books enough to not abuse them. DO YOU?
Usually before a boy starts to school, he has learned to doff his hat at the door. However, we have two or three boys in high school who insist upon wearing hats or caps in the building. We are wondering if a hint to the wise will not be sufficient.
Boys and girls in high school are also supposed to know how to walk without stamping or dragging their feet across the floor. This disturbs classes and pupils who are trying to study. You can help to make the school better by using your manners.
The Junior Volley Ball girls with the help of Miss Miller and Frances Willis, organized Monday morning during Physical Education period. The group has four teams; the Bludbirds, Cardinals, Snails , and Stars.
The Senior Volley Ball girls met and organized five different teams Friday morning at the Physical Education period. Miss Miller appointed five girls to choose the players and one substitute for each team. The following are the captains and the names of their teams, Earlyne Lowe, “Scavengers: Eloise Lowery, “Go-getters”; Willie B. McCuistion, “Kangaroos”; Anna Grace Klinglesmith, “Hounds”; and [last team?] Virginia Allman, “Cubs”. The teams will play round robin fashion. The captains drew for places to play.
The Senior Volley Girls have played three games and are playing on their fourth one. In the first game the “Go-getters” beat the “Scavengers”, and the second game the “Kangaroos”, beat the “Hounds”. The third game was played between the “Cubs” and “Go-getters”, and the “Cubes” were the winners. The Fourth game, which is not yet completed, is being played between the “Scavengers” and “Kangaroos”.
S. T. Lanier and Leo Roane have been elected Co-Captains of the football team. S. T. is captain of the linemen, and Leo is captain of the back field men.

Corrections in “Double V” Staff
In the paper last week in the staff it was printed that Jack Highfill was a paper folder and that Bill Allman was a printer. We want to correct this error. Jack Highfill is a printer and Bill
Allmann a paper folder.
Another Field Trip
The seventh grade pupils seemed to have developed a manic for old cemeteries. We sometimes wonder if they are communing with the dead in their efforts to work out the unit in Valley View history. At any rate they are making an excursion to the old cemetery west of the McCubbin farm. They expect to find some information on the old grave stones.
The first and second grades have been studying fruits. The pupils [?] pictures of the fruits and then made a booklet of them.
The third grade is studying trees and leaves. They have learned [?ed] the autumn colors and are learning an autumn song. They have made some very interesting posters of leaves.
The first, second and third grades will use ditto sheets in arithmetic and language instead of individual booklets.
The fifth and sixth grades are studying music. They are learning the different parts of music. The pupils are very interested in this new subject.
The seventh grade is studying a unit on the history of Valley View.
Marvin Rauschuber has enrolled in the fourth grade. Chester Craw[?] has also enrolled in Mrs. McCollum’s room.
