SENIOR OF THE WEEK • • This week we would like to salute another outstanding se- nior, Beratta Gomillion. Sheis sixteen, has brown hair and green eyes. Her activities and clubs include: President of Beta Club, President of Math Club, Vice President of the Senior Class, Secretary of the Student Council, Treasurer of the Band Chemistry Experiment? The 1st period Chemistry students proved to be very in- ventive last week in the lab - after having a few disastrous accidents like breaking beak- ers and glass tubes. Some of these amateur chemists could have been labeled Dr. Jeckell and Mr. Hyde, with the concoc- tions they invented. Boiling Mg C12 can be a very moving experiment, especially if some- one drinks it. The Chemistry students tried hard to invent a moving body like Frankenstein, but they succeeded in only bending glass. HIGH SCHOOL IS . . . How surprised we all would be if we could know all the dif- ferent thoughts of people in high school. These seem to be the most frequent. The Seniors are anxiously looking forward to June. They are realizing for about thefirst time how much they have learn- ed in high school. Not just all the school work but the matur- ing and important lessons e-f growing up they have experi- enced. This is the time for remembering all the good times, and looking feverishly Council and Lyre Club. When asked about her college educa- tion, she said, "I went to Hunt- ingdon College during the past summer and plan to attend there again after graduation in the field of pre-law." We would like to wish her the best of luck in her future plans. forward to the new world which will open for them after gra- duation. The Senior year is a bitter - sweet time. The Juniors are selling, sell- ing, selling. It seems asthough all their time is spent studying and selling magazines. They are wondering how on earth they'll ever survive another year of high school after this one. With great anticipation they look forward to ordering their Senior rings. Next year is what all Juniors are work- ing for; the wonderful Senior year. The Sophmores are just wait- ing until they become upper- classmen. Things are becom- ing old to them now, and they're becoming bored with high school. To the Freshmen, high school is the greatest thing ever. They're meeting different people, and it's just wonderful to finally be in high school. My advice to the Freshmen is, "Enjoy it while you can!" To the Sophmores I say, "Hang on in there." Juniors, don't worry, it'll soon be over. And good' luck Seniors. Just because you make a mistake is no reason why you should advertise it to the cold and cruel world. CLEAR SPRINGS CHURCH NEWS By: Gracie Adkison It is with special delight to report on our Revival held last week. Most good things start with small beginnings and Mon- day night there was some em- pty seats. However, there was consid- erable enthusiasm in evidence and this increased every night as the number of seats were filled. We praise the Lord for the religious awakening as our l hearts were deeply touched by the outstanding way the spirit worked through the sermons Pastor Perkins brought each night. Souls were saved and Chris- leans were brought back to a consciousness of spiritual fel- lowship and unity with God. Our hearts were made warm by the presence of visitors from other denominations who came to share these wonderful nights of revival. There is something about the cross that is shared with all religions. We know God has set a pattern for all living things• God is the spiritual essence of all things. Most all believe there is something beyond this life. One of the most amazing doctrines of scripture is that God with the infinite universe on his hands, yet has a de- finite plan for each of us. We would not want the sin of prejudice in our hearts for we realize that we are all one in Christ if we are saved. We are grateful for all who supported our Revival with your prayers and your presence. We regret to say our sick list has not dimenished. We all know the power of prayer and we do pray daily for these, Bobby Nelson, Bill Hudson, Wil- lie Holloway and Naomi Bell, and especially for the loved ones who minister to their needs. All I can say this week about our Homecoming is, "It was the greatest," God really blessed us this year and we give him all the praise. Next week you will be able to read the whole story. Be watching for the story of the Homecoming in next weeks Flo- rala News. Again, we cordially invite all who will to join us in our re- gular services. We're just a "Homey" bunch, but we have great times when we assemble ourselves to worship and have fellowship. We are cdncerned about the unchurched friend or neighbor. We know what joy they are depriving themselves of by not attending church. If you are one of these, will you give church a try? You will gain the reward.
