Great Enthusiasm for Life Is Shown
by High School
In this time of depression it is en
couraging to ll of4' that there is a great
boom (ii among the high school papers
of North Carolina, which are up and
coming with a rush. Great originality
is shown in news articles, hut even
more in editoiial features.
The George Wahington Bicentenial
has furnished several enterprising edi- ;
tors with ideas for feature columns. For \
some time the Greensboro High School
paper, "High Life," published essays
on aspects of Washington's life and
character. "Pine Whispers," of Win
ston-Salcm, has printed Washington's
rules of conduct, as has the Mocksville j
"Mocksonian." The "Boone Herald" j
prints compositions on Washington and
Lincoln from time to time.
The Greensboro "High Life" has won
second prize in the national high school
press association contest. The news j
articles of this paper concern not only
events in the high school, but also, the
present public school situation, the state
high school press, and similar subjects.
On the editorial page is usually an in
teresting cartoon, a column of poetry,
nonsense or otherwise "The Owl's Nest,"
a column whose subject would be hard
to determine, and "Mephisophelian
Macaroni," of the same genre, as well
as a lengthy open forum and several
"Our Own Dictionary" is an inter
esting and original feature of "Pine
Whispers," of the li. .T. Reynolds High
School, in which w find the following
definition: "Pony—called by book store
managers 'llandy translation'; a book
devised to save wear and tear 011 vocab
ularies. Also a small animal probably
of the species horse." "Pine Whispers"

MRS. BINFORD SPEAKS
ON "LIVING LIVES" TO Y
Powers of Leadership Can Be Devel
oped by Every
At a joint meeting of the V. M. \ A.
and V. W. A. held mi Thursday.
April 11, Mrs. Raymond Itinford spoke
Oil "Living Lives."
Mrs. Hi 11 ton I brought before the
meeting the necessity of preparing
leaders. She pointed out that while
not everyone can be a leader we should
all develop those powers of leadership
which we do have.
The first important tiling is to
live to one's own ideals. To do
this it is necessary to know our
selves. We must learn to remove our
weaknesses, and to develop our strong
points. Never think that you are fully
developed but remember that there is
always room for growth. We should
constantly add to those things in lifei
which will make us worthwhile.
The speaker cited an example of a I
beautiful thing developed from a worth
loss object. Our lives are like that. Once (
marred they can be rebuilt and made ]
more beautiful than before. 1

SPECIAL TRAINING GIVEN
Vocational guidance and personnel
are to be emphasized in Guilford's
fifteenth summer session which begins
May .'il and continues through August
2, 1932. Guilford is perhaps as well
qualified as any other South- rn institu
tion for this phase of instruction. The
services of Dean Clyde A. Milner, Mrs.
Ernestine C. Milner, and F. Carlyle
Shepherd have been nlisted. High
school teachers who find it their par
ticualr privilege to council youth will
I find this instruction very valuable.
Other aims of 111 is session are first,
to afford college students an opportuni
ty to continue and supplement their
Liberal Arts college course, for the work
done in the summer session is standard
work in a standard college and the
eredit received is standard credit; and
second to give to teachers courses that
lead to certification.
Scientific courses that are to be given j
will include introductory biology, hy- !
giene, chemistry, physics, and niatlie- I
unities. Physical education offers tennis,
swimming, baseball, and archery.

SUMMARY OF YEAR'S CHAPELS |
i Rev. Tom Sykes, of High Point, as
exuberant and pleasing as ever, spoke
lin chapel on Tuesday, April 5. "In
, these times it is easy to be sarcastic
and cynical toward the church,"' he (
said. "And it isn't long before we get |
cynical toward everything that has any
: idealism in it.'' In this time of "the
slimmest boom we have ever known," •
as Will Rogers terms the present state i =
of world affairs, it is well for us to j
consider the inspiring examples st by
great men. Our own forefathers of the
post-Civil War days were valiant strug
gles in a worse situation that that
which wc are facing.
Inspired by the lives of great men.
Mr. Sykes continued, let us strive 1
toward a progressive life by keeping 1
the values of yesterday and adding 1
those of today, all the while checking '''
ourselves by the realization that * man's n
greatest utterance is himself."
Mrs. Mary Grace Canficld, of Wood
stock, Y rmont, and Greensboro, a very I 1
unique and charming speaker, ad- 1
dressed the chapel group on Friday, v

WILMINGTON IS PLEASED
Forty-One of Old and New Members
Spend Week Singing
We, the members of the "A Capello
Choir," have just returned from our
northern tour. The tour extended from
Saturday, March 2(>, to the following
Saturday, April We gave concerts
I in Richmond, Virginia; Washington, D.
C.; Mount Airy, Maryland; Wilmington,
Delaware; Atlantic City, and Pleasant
| Valley, near Poughkeepsie, New York.
Mount Vernon was the first interest
ing point which we visited. Washing
ton's picturesque mansion 011 the Poto
mac is the site of many, many ex
cursions. In Washington, I). C. we were
impressed ly the Lincoln Memorial and
The Longwood Gardens, .just a few
miles out of Wilmington, are truly an
earthly Paradise. They are faslroned
' after the famous Gardens of Versailles.
1 Flowers are growing everywhere, and
their fragrance fills the air. .Inst as
words cannot describe them, even so
time will not take the memory of them
away from us. We were delighted, also,
to hear the largest pipe organ is the
United States, which is in the PuPont
Conservatory at Longwood Gardens.
But even a greater treat was in store
for us when we were privileged to ap
pear in a joint concert with Mr. Swin
nen, at the University of Delaware. Mr.
Swinnen, the organist of the DuPont
| Conservatory, is a master musician who
really carries his audience whereever
| Atlantic City could not be called a
i high spot in elevation, but we considered
it one. We stayed at Iladdon Hall, a
large hotel; it was there that we gave
our concert. Lovers of the ocean could
gaze at it to their hearts content. It
was a windy day, and the breakers roll
ing in from the vast expanse of water
gave one a felling of exaltation.
New York City was really a "high
light.'* We who have stiff necks from
: attempting to see the top of th'e Empire
State building are sure of that. We
drove down Fifth avenue and Broadway,
and saw a little of the great city. We
had a beautiful drive along the Hudson
to Poughkeepsie. We went through
j Sleepy Hollow and crossed the bridge
I where Tchabod Crane saw the ghost.
| Wo don't have time to tell you about
! our trip, for that would fill up the whole
I "Guilfordin 11," but wo do hope we have
convinced you that our trip was worth

somewhat hampered the thumb-sucking

i T Want My Mamma," composed several
centuries ago by the famous twins, Cain
and Abel. The second group, first of
which was "Take That Gang Away!"
