W.S.Harlan Halloween Carnival Just One Big Fun House by Merle Woodham There is nothing quite like a Carnival and there is no carni- val quite like the Halloween Carnival sponsored each year by the W.S. Harlan PTA. This is their one big project of the year and the teachers, pa- rents and students join together and put their whole hearts into making this event the gigantic success it always is. This year it was bigger and better than ever! Around 800 people paid the 25 cover charge and that didn't include the workers (teachers and their husbands) and the children under school age. So, approximately 1,000 people were in attendance. This carnival is without a doubt the best organized that I have ever attended. The King and Queen, Prince and Princess contest brought in over $1,000. Grades one through eight have an entry and each grade tries to get their entry named King, Queen, Prince or Princess. I always make a point of putting this event on my calendar. Somehow I missed going last year and having missed last year, this year's event was more exciting than ever. They really know how to get most folks attention. As one en- ters, food stands are set up on either side of the sidewalk. On the one side is Eloise Judson selling all kinds of homebaked ca- kes, cookies, candies, candied apples - you name it and she had it. On the other side was Anelia Laird's home made chili sim- mering over hot charcoal and weiners roasting for hot dogs with chili or your choice of sauces. I always hang oul in the cake walking department. Our neigh- bors, Diane and Charles Stevenson, always have it under control. Usually, l have Sonya to walk with me and together we win a cake in two or three walks. Saturday night I walked lP. times and still hadn't won a cake. Sonya had celebrated her birthday in Auburn on Friday, without a cake, and I had to have a cake to take up there Sunday when we went to pick her up. So, I finally asked Diane what she would take for one and bought one. It was fine, too, a red velvet made by Mrs. Hobby Hargrove. Those Auburn students really enjoyed it. Gary said it was his favo- rite and when we started to leave. Sherry and Cindy wouldn't let Sonya have her cake. Sonya, like myself, is always on a diet, so she didn't complain. Other activities taking place outside are the football throw over- seen by Coach Robert McCurley and a number of other throwing games which are set up outside, and the all time favorite ac- tivity the hay ride, was constantly loading up another gang. Nolan Laird had loaned them his cotton hauling trailer and they loaded about 50 in each time at 25c a head. So. this, no doubt, brought in its share of the cold cash I think I visited most every room with the exception of the Horror House. From the looks of the kids coming out of that place, I kept my distance. I never could stand the Horror House. It makes me have nightmares. But there were those who kept going back for more so it was exciting for them, anyway. . All this time, tension is building inside in the auditorium as the money is turned in for the King, Queen - Prince, Princess Contest. The contestants, dressed in their finery, stand on stage anxiously awaiting the naming of the winners. When the expenses were deducted, the Lockhart PTA had $2400.00 to deposit to their account. They will decide at the up- coming PTA meeting just how it will be best spent. Last year they purchased air conditioners for all the rooms. Since we have just two or three short months of cold weather anymore, the tea- chers and students alike are certainly getting their moneys worth from last year's Halloween profits. Mrs. Bessie I must congratulate all the Lockhart teachers, parents and spending some time students on a well planned and executed Halloween party. Every- daughter and ~amily, body was having fun. Not oneperson, did I see misbehaving. With -Mrs. Gerald Manningi 1,000 persons in attendance - that is some record, ville, Alabama. PERSONA L NOTES ENESS Philip A.
