FHA NEWS The Future Homemakers of America of FHS have been very busy lately. On March 10, 19"/3 the FHA had a road- block for the Red Cross. On March 29, FHA held a Slave Auction, all benefits going to the Red Cross also. All girls dressed up as slaves and were auctioned off at Recess and Lunch by Bill Rodwell. The combined effort of the Road-Block and Slave Auction brought a little over $Z00.00 all within one week. Also the Little Miss, Junior Miss, and Senior Miss Flor- ala Beauty Contest was held Friday, April 14, 1973. Several of the officers, Mrs. Pittman, and a member, went to the FHA Convention near Birmingham. All in all the last few weeks have been busy for all FHA • members.

If all goes as planned, the day should be a most enjoyable one for all con- cerned. Personal Glimpse Of High School I can remember the first day I darkened the halls of F. H. S. as a freshman very well. Oh, I already knew my way around 'cause I'd been coming to band , practice tot years. But VII never forget the day they herded us into the gym for as- sembly. Even the Seniors were friendly that day, but after they knew your name you had to be careful. I didn't get lost a single time, and l.even opened my locker the first time!! I remember my first locker num- ber. That's good because now that l'm a Senior I can't even remember the exact number of my locker this year! The Seniors were okay most of the time. However, on one oc- casion, they began to collect "dues" from freshmen. This was necessary in order to sur- vive the torment they had pre- pared. I kinda' miss my fresh- man year. It seems like yes- terday. My sophomore and junior years passed so quickly I can't remember a whole lot about them. About the only exciting thing q did was make All-State Band. ~ Now that doesn't include the Prom, Sweetheart Ball, In- teract IniUtatiun (?), ect ....... They were more or less extra- curicular activities. Do you remember your sophomore and junior locker combinations? I can't even tell ya' where my second locker was. Everything happened so fast! Now, I'm a Senior and I thought it would be a big deal. We do go to recess early. The Juniors are even gouna' get their rings on May 9! 1 guess my Seniorship has lost its WHAT IS YOUR PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE? Mary Kathryn Mitchell - To- day is the first day of the rest of your life.

Lewis states that this action has been taken due to the ex- treme damage to the fill, when 150 feet of the fill were washed away be recent heavy rains and the head walls to the Holloway Bridge, were damaged, making it impossible to complete this paving and repair other damages done with the alloted $30,000 dollars. He stated that it would cost an addition $15,000 dollars to complete this paving and repair work. Therefore, Lewis has decided that it would be in the best in- terest of the District and County to have the $30,000 dollar State grant transfered to the comple- tion of the Jackson Town Road where the preparation for pav- ing has been completed for some time. Lewis says the paving of the Holloway Bridge Road will be continued as soon as paving pre- parations have been completed and monies are available. turn to Dothan Tickets are Wiregrass single rate of cupied seat will not be ceeds will go to Museum the Wire Tickets may at the Central pot in Dothan, Jeweler in Dothan, ford and Slocomh in Hartford or by mail. quested to send Wiregrass Box 291, 36301, and to self-addressed prompt handling.

Isn't it funny how little value other people put on your time. Rarely does anyone take the trouble to thank anyone for anything. Writers will do well to avoid the intoxication of ad- jectives. Simple things and simple people are often the great among us. Can you distinguish be- tween the gossip of your community and the truth?
