The whole team played together nicely, the line making pretty passes to each other while the backfield was impassable. The first game was played at Kernersville and High Point was able to score only one field goal. The other two were penalty kicks when fouls were called on the op posing players. Thursday afternoon Kerners ville came here and again were de feated. Although the Yellow Jack ets fought hard they were no match for the fast Greyhounds. This time two goals were scored from the field and one was made on a penalty kick. Kernersville High Point Edwards G Gurley Ingram LF McLeod Harrison RF Pritchard McCueston CH„ _C.

Greensboro Paper Praises High Point’s Team HOCKEY lEAM LOSES IE High Point Girls Play Gate City Squad to a Score of 2 to 0 Hedrick Stars for Locals The local hockey team played the strong Winston squad to a scoreless tie on Thursday, No vember 15, in the hardest fought game of the season. The first half was a series of dribbles and drives from one end of the field to the other. Only once or twice during this half did either team threaten to score. The half ended with the score of 0 to 0. High Point came back in the second half more determined to win than they had been before. Several times they rushed the ball near the goal line, but were unable to send it through the goal posts. At one time during this half the ball was in two feet of the goal line, but the High Pointers could not get it through the strong defense of Winston. Neither team was able to score during the entire game.

The Greensboro Daily News, in writing up the game, said the fol lowing: “High Point exhibited greater power throughout the route. Bryant and Kearns proved High Point’s real threats, and inci dentally, these boys are about as good as anything in the state. They came back for the second half, and smashed and dashed their way through the Purple and Gold in sensational fashion, to give their team an even break. The work of Farlow, Hinkle, Bulla, and Hankins stood out m the Pointer line. GIRL RESERVES MAKE BACKS FOR BOOKLETS Miss Albright demonstrated the process of making backs for poetry books In the Girl Reserve meeting November 8. They are made by slipping a piece of white construc tion paper into a pan of water in which oil paints have been dropped. The colored paper Is used for the backs of booklets in which choice bits of poetry are printed. Not only is the paper used for poetry books, but dso for sEa- tionary and covers for many kinds of booklets. Sidelights On The Game The High Point hockey team lost a hard-fought game to Greensboro Tuesday, November 13, by the score of 2. to 0. The local girls played a hard game, but were un able to equal the speed of the more experienced Greensboro team. During the first half the ball was played between the two teams. Neither team seemed able to get the ball near the opponent’s goal. The half ended 0 to 0. The second half was a different story. The Greensboro girls came back with more speed and vigor than they had shown in the first half. The ball was kept in High Point territory the greater part of this half. The first goal was made near the beginning of the half. This seemed to stimulate the Greensboro team, and soon the ball was again rushed down the field for a second goal. The High Pointers then awoke to the fact that they were falling short and the last few minutes they played a strong defensive game. Probably the greatest hindrance High Point found in making a goal was the outstanding work of Davis, Greensboro’s goal keeper. Time after time, the High Pointers would rush the ball near the goal, only to have it sent back up the field by the goal keeper. Goodwin and Barbee for Greensboro, also did some excellent playing. The most oustanding player for High Point was Captain Hedrick. She was by far the greatest ground gainer on the field. Greensboro High Point Stapleton C Clapp Barbee RI Ingram FIRST CALL ISSUED BY BASKET BALL COACH The first girls’ basket ball meet ing of the year was held Tuesday afternoon with about forty girls present. A great many more girls will probably be out later, after the hockey and volley-ball season closes. Miss Henderson expects to hold a few pre-season practices for those girls who are not practicing hockey or basket ball. After their other sports are ended, she plans to organize different teams and hold regular practices daily. PEP MEET IN CHAPEL BEFORE FOOTBALL GAME A pep meeting of the student body to stir up enthusiasm for the Greensboro-High Point champion ship football game was held in the auditorium Thursday morning, No vember 15. Sam Winslow, school cheerleader, led in the yells while Mr. Stookey directed the songs. The members of the football team assembled on the stage, and several of the boys spoke, urging the students to attend the game. Three or four members of the stu dent body and of the faculty also voiced their sentiments as to the game. Mr. M. L. Patrick displayed the new High Point high school pennant, and announced that they could be purchased down town. Before the meeting the members of the hockey team appeared on the stage and announced the hockey game for Thursday afternoon. They also invited all the students to come and help cheer them on to victory. What I know about football wouldn’t fill a nutshell. Yes, that s exactly what I know about ite But even though I don’t quite ge. the hang of it I enjoy going to tht games. I’ll tell you why. A football game is about the only place I know of where you can talk and chew gum to your heart’s content right under the faculty’s nose with out having to run down and explain to the office force about it. Well, Friday, having an extra supply of Wrigleys, and having been in an unusual talkative mood, I decided that the most appropriate thing to do was to attend the High Point-Greensboro game, since everybody seemed to be headed In that general direction of Winston- Salem, and I wouldn’t have had anybody to talk to, and chew with if I hadn’t gone. So I went thereto. Due to a slight delay, by the time I had arrived at my destina tion most of the H. P. H. S. and G. H. S. had already assembled themselves upon the bleachers. Naturally, at once to my Ups arose the question, “Where am I going to sit?’’ for even then I had a faint idea that maybe I’d do eleven hundred students the honor of writing for them an article on “Happenings on the Sidelines, so I had to be where I could see all. For some time, I with a couple of companions whom I had found on the way out, wandered up anc down in front of the bleachers look ing for a place where we might sit down to rest, but in vain sought we. Eventually, two dear baby freshmen, perhaps noticing that one of my companions was a young lady of some note, slid down a foot or two, and the three of us wedgec ourselves into the small space so humbly vacated by the lads. Unable to see the game, I turnec for the first time, to examine my neighbors. On the left were my two companions, and knowing them already I spent no time in watching them. To the front there was nothing but that moving mass of human beings, and so I was not able to progress far in that direc tion. I turned to the right and suddenly my gaze was again ob structed by something huge. Thought I, could this be another mass of people? Then I came to my senses, and realized that it was merely a girl, but she was by far the largest girl I have ever seen. She was pretty though, with a rose leaf complexion, and rosy cheeks, and lips that looked as though they had been “kissed by strawberries’’ etc. Her arms were smooth, white, and well rounded. But what attracted me more than anything was her voice. It was so sweet and soft and babyish, and she lisped slightly. Oh, she was a dear one, boys. It took too much of the energy that I wanted to save for some rooting for the team to turn far enough, and to see those behind me, but I was vaguely conscious through the excitement of watching the game which I could now see quite clearly, that the person who sat directly to my back wore very sharp-toed shoes. Before I hardly realized it half the game was over. During the intermission I sat chewing my gum, and staring into space, when sud denly there crossed before my vision two figures that to my far- off mind seemed familiar. I im mediately brought my reasoning powers back to the present, and realized that one of the figures was Miss Louise Shipman, smiling “full simple and coy. But the game had again begun, and I was soon so interested In watching a certain party win a pair of shoes that I was oblivious to all around me. However, I was In a few minutes rudely called back to my immediate surroundings by my fat neighbor who wanted to know If I knew HIM. I hadn’t the slightest idea about whom she was talking so I asked her which one— thereupon she pointed out Charlie Kearns. I informed her as to that gentleman’s name, class, and so cial, moral, and scholastic standing in our school—Well, she wanted to know, and I had to be polite. “Isn’t he the handsomest thing?’’ she cooed, and her voice sounded like wind whistling down the chimney flue in winter—you know, soft and musical. I didn’t answer her be cause I was too busy watching the Greensboro folks foolishly yell their heads off when they knew that they hadn’t a chance In the world against us. Well, she didn’t seem to notice that I was occupied. She continued to rave so I finally gave ler one long chilling look, and told ler that I already knew that Charlie was a handsome brute, and would she please quit trying to tell me. That silenced her for a while, 3ut during a very tough scrimmage she turned to me again to ask if they were fumbling the ball. I ladn’t informed her that I didn t mow anything about football, so I acted quite loftily, and told her sarcastically that I didn t know, and if she wanted me to, I d run aown and find out, but she didn t seem to catch the joke at all. She looked at me kind of wonderingly and turned away. Well, this Is getting rather lengthy, and I still haven t im parted much information about life along the sidelines, but I naust stop. Perhaps I’ll volunteer a little more information another time. —Ina McAdams ORATIO CLUB LAUNCHES BIG PROJECT FOR YEAR (Continued from Page I) studied IS how to overcome stage fright. Mr. L. E.
