Valdosta High School
The students of V.H.S. entertained the visiting teams at dances in their homes throughout the football season, the music being furnished by Powell Puckett and his Dosta Serenaders. The last football dance was a gala affair at the Woman's Club Building. These dances were enjoyed very much and the proceeds went to the Annual of this year.
The W.A.B.'s gave a benefit bridge party, the proceeds of which went to the Annual. It was held at the home of one of the members of the club, Miss Vallie Dalton. The club members acted as hostesses. The programme consisted of a song by Miss Evelyn Jackson, a reading by Miss Mary Youles and a dance by Miss Evelyn Murphy. Delightful refreshments were served by the hostesses.
The football team was entertained
at a banquet by the girls of the Domestic Science department. This
was an enjoyable feature of the season. Speeches and toasts and the
good supper served by the girls were the main feature of the day.
The R.A.R.'s, a club of boys, have had a series of dances, the proceeds going to the Annual. The group of wide-awake boys have defrayed to a great extent the expenses of the Annual. They have also entertained some friends and members of the faculty at a fish fry and at a dinner dance at Twin Lakes.
The Junior Class, in order to raise money for the Annual, has entertained at a bridge party held at the home of Miss Marguerete [sic] Langdale. The tables were all full and after prizes were awarded, dancing was enjoyed by many of the guests.
The Freshman class gave a masquerade ball at the home of Mr. Curtis Jackson. This was one of the first entertainments of this kind ever pulled off by a Freshman class in the Valdosta High and the Freshies of Miss Dampier's section deserved honorable mention as being the instigators of this plan of raising money for the school activities.
The girls of the Senior class gave, as a method to raise money for the Dosta, a manless dance. Some of the girls masqueraded as boys and were such good men as to cause some of the Beau Brummels of the Junior and Senior classes to experience severe pangs of jealousy.
The Senior Class was entertained by the Lowndes County Club of the S.G.W.C. This was in the form of a prom party. Practically every member of the Senior class and some of the members of the faculty attended. This occasion proved to be a delightful one in every respect.
An enjoyable affair every year is the Senior Play presented by the graduating class. This year it was under the capable direction of Miss Marie Fry. The play selected this year by the class differs from the usual order of the high school plays in that it is diverted from the monotonous trend into which these plays have been heretofore thrown. It is "The Whole Town's Talking."
The cast is:
The District Meet
The District meet was awarded to
Douglas, to be held there on the 22, 23, 24 of April.
The Junior-Senior Banquet
The Junior-Senior banquet is an
enjoyable feature of High School life. Every year the Juniors
entertain the graduating class at a banquet. This is a gala affair
in the society life of High School. The Juniors of this year carried
off the part of entertaining the Seniors in a very praiseworthy manner.
The toastmaster, Mr. William Converse Haygood, acted in a way which
would have done credit to any experienced toastmaster. It was held
at the Woman's Club Building; the hall was beautifully decorated with tea
roses and ferns, and the Senior class colors predominated throughout the
whole color scheme.
