FLEMING-NEON HIGH SCHOOL
School News by Nickey Hazen
On Nov. 17 the Neon grade school caught on fire but due to the quick response of the fire department very little damage was done.
Fleming is scheduled to play the Pound, Va., basketball team on Wednesday, Nov. 29. The game will be played at the Fleming Gym, and is expected to be tough since the teams are very evenly matched.
The money that was made from the Hallowe’en Carnival is being used to equip the Fleming High School with material that is needed. Already they have purchased $77 worth of maps and $26 worth of magazines.
The Neon Business and Professional Men’s Club held a meeting recently for the purpose of raising money to hire a night watchman. The club is working toward the improvement and progress of the Town of Neon.

Fleming High School
Friday night, Oct. 6, the students of Fleming High School attended the first “Social” of this school year. This gala party was given by the junior class under the sponsorship of Georgia Bates White (Mrs. Maurice E. White).
Approximately one hundred “showed up”, each dressed in his best “bib and tucker.” There was plenty of entertainment, excitement, and hilarious fun for all.
The juniors wish to thank Mrs. J.B. McAuley for furnishing the cold drinks.
