It’s about the same as last year except Mr. Alair left us and Mr. Shofner is taking his place and Miss Hagood left and Mrs. Grayson has it piled up on her. Poor thing! And Miss Lynch has Mrs. Maddux place.
We had several visitors the first day of school, Dr. Cochran, Mr. Chiles, Mr. Boone, Mr. Edwards and Mr. Wood, all members of the Lion’s club; Mrs. Chiles, Mrs. Edwards, Opal Smith, Bismarck Rohde, Joe Hill, Midget Harris and Gladys Richey.
The Botany class is one more swell class. We hear they are gonna do great things and leave a few of them after they’re gone. All the teachers made a talk- except Mrs. Van, she gave us a wave of her hand.
We had assembly Tuesday. Mr. Crossett made us a very interesting talk on the Constitution, it being the anniversary of its adoption.
Junior Hi has changed quite a bit. Mr. McBride has the place of Mr. Bassett, and Miss Pearl Lynch of Mrs. Maddux.
Football is going strong. Mr. Shofner and Mr. McBride are very good coaches, so we hear, and of course our football boys know everything, so you better watch out for the Caddo football team. We play Madill Friday.
We have 112 enrolled in High School and 74 in Junior High.
Sixth Grade Notes
Sixth Grade had a class meeting last Friday and elected these officers: Jessie Guthrie, president, Claudine Nail, vice president, Dorothy Bilbo, secretary-treas.
Enrollment 26 first week.
A large number of sixth grade attended the Durant Fair. Many are interested in 4-H Club work.
A few are absent on account of cotton picking. We hope they’ll soon be back.

Had three tests this week, and doing fine as usual.
Sh! Don’t tell the teachers, but Harriet Ray sure likes to draw.
Monday Thelma Lee gave a picture to us. Harriet Ray is to have it framed for us.
Mr. McBride sure knows his arithmetic.
Eight Grade officers: Lavene Markam, president, Marinell Sargent, vice pres., James Goddard, secretary, Doris Jane Wilson, treasurer, Wilma Hamilton, editor, Pauline Kimbrough, yell leader. Class colors- blue and gold.
Motto: Through difficulty to the highest.
Class met Friday and organized by electing these officers: Inez Hogan, president, Nadine Guthrie, secy-treas., Orman Womble, vice, Gail Downing, reporter, Mrs. S. L. Shofner, sponsor.
I don’t know, but I heard that freshmen girls had to go barefooted all Friday afternoon and the boys were sent through the belt line.
Freshmen class has several boys on the football team and seems to be a pretty large class of girls who surely can yell. Freshmen, Rah!
Well, here we are again but not Freshmen. We have advanced one more step in High School and it won’t be long now until we will be writing “Senior Doings”.
There were twenty-two sophomores enrolled the first day of school and a few have entered since then.
The sophomores are settled down for a real year of business and study and will come out in the lead.
We sure selected some real class officers, especially sponsor, who is Mrs. Grayson. She will stand by us and boost us in every move we make of rhte good of the class and Caddo High School.
Pres. – Geo. A. Wood
Vice Pres.- Jim Green
Sec. and Treas.- Ava Jo Wright
Reproter- Spurgeon Brister
Sponsor- Mrs. Grayson
Here we are again! Only we’re juniors now- getting a little nearer being “dignified”.
We organized our class with a bang! Our officers are: Homer Geter, president, Clifton Wood, vice, Billy Edwards, secy-treas., Mary Adeline Boland, reporter, Miss Hauer, sponsor.
You can tell by our officers that the boys are in the majority, but they’ll have to play a girl’s part, so we don’t care.
As usual we have a large number of boys taking up footballs.
Now come on folks and pretend you’re a junior because we need you. If you don’t, watch US!
Greetings, folks! Here we are again. However, we are very dignified now, being Seniors you know. The Juniors say that we are stuck up, but we’re not- we just know that we are important and the best class in school. That doesn’t sound a bit stuck up, “do it?” Anyway we’re mighty glad to be back up here this year and we’re going to do things that’ll always be telling you that C. H. S. has a “hot” Senior Class.
Thursday Mr. VanMeter was so sweet and let us organize our classes- we chose these officers: Russell McGreary, president, Pauline Carlton, vice, Helen Womble, secy-treas., Clyde Blanks, yell leader, BeeBee Chiles, reporter. Believe it or not we couldn’t afford a new sponsor this year, so we had to take our old one. Anyway, Mrs. Van is with us again, and of course we are all very happy to have her ‘cause we love her just an awful lot. We don’t blame Mr. Van a bit, but sometimes we are a bit jealous of him.
Our president appointed two committees, one to choose class flower and the other to select a motto and emblem. Pauline, Maribob, Leila and Clyde form the first. Mrs. Van, Helen, Nella, Martha, and BeeBee compose the second.
The Freshmen think the upper classmen are cruel because the boys were sent through the belt line Thursday, and Friday the girls were deprived of their hose and made to go barefoot Friday. However most of them were good sports because they know “every dog has his day” and theirs will be next year.
Our sponsor had a letter from our “ring” man and he said he would be by Caddo soon so we are all thrilled.
