School Spirit

In the preceding years the school spirit in H. H. S. has not been what it should. How do you expect our team to make a good showing if we do not back them from the side lines.

This year we have three excellent cheerleaders. They can not do all of the cheering. We must do all we can to help. Do not wander all over the field. If you have a boy or girl friend, take them to the cheering section with you. If they won't go, leave them stand-- they won't run away.

Who supports you five days a week? Hazard Hi, that's who. So surly you can give her your support one afternoon or evening. That is a debt you owe her, which must be paid while you are in school. If it is not paid now, you will owe it all your life.

In order to have a "School Spirit" worth mentioning you must have "PEP". Pep can be defined in three ways. First. Pep can't be bought. You can't see it, and-- well it is like love, when it hits you, you know you are hit.
