Goat Bryant: Do you think you
could get hungry enough to eat a
Miss Lindsay: I don’t know. I
was never that hungry. Why?
Goat: Them cannon balls did.
Miss Lindsay: What are epithets?
Mary Elizabeth Harllee: Some
thing you put on graves.
Miss Lindsay: Now Robert, what
does it mean to hurl epithets?
Rod Davis: To hurl brickbats.
A Day In High
Point High School
B-r-r-r-r! What a cold morning.
... I sure am glad that the school
keeps its doors open, for I m about
to freeze. . . Oh boy, it is warm in
here. . . . There goes the bell. . . •
It certainly is convenient to have
lockers in the halls. No one can
steal your books now. ... I guess
you have more friends in school
that anywhere else. . . . Pictures
certainly do add to the attractive
ness of the room. They give it a
touch of color. . . . Plenty of light
and air in this building. Quite a
contrast to the old one. ... It sure
does feel good to have all your
lessons up. . . . Hot dog, we go to
chapel this morning.
Nothing like good brisk music to
pep you up in the morning. Who
ever is playing sure can knock that
old thing off. . . . This is one morn
ing when I fell like singing, though
I’m certainly not a professional in
that line. . .". I hope the speaker Is
interesting. I like good speeches.
. . . He’s not so bad after all. He
brings out some interesting facts
I hadn’t thought of at all. . . . There
goes the bell. Latin’s next. It s not
so bad when you know it. I used to
think it was awful.
Oh boy] Lunch period at last.
I’m about starved. There goes the
bell. . . . The halls seem to be con
gested most when you are in a big
hurry. . . . The line is half way up
the hall. . . . Well, I’ll get there
some time. . . . This building Is
right pretty after all. When you
get used to a thing you don t ap
preciate it as much. . . . Now, that
frieze for instance. It’s not a bit
bad. . . . Here already? It doesn t
seem so long when you re -not
thinking of how hungry you are:
Fruit salad. Barbecue sandwich.
Rolls, Steak, Potatoes, Greens,
Chicken soup. Blackberry cobbler.
Cake. Chocolate and plain milk.
They serve pretty good meals here.
I don’t know of any other place in
town where you could get such good
things for so little. . . . They keep
good candy here. Any kind you
want. . . . They sure are fixing the
grounds up pretty here now. The
scenery around here is just about
as pretty as I’ve seen. . . . Oh, there
goes the bell.
There goes the buzzer for the end
of the seventh period. . . Pretty
happy days go by in school. We
should make the most of them.
. . . There goes the bell. Oh, stay
in to help you prepare programs for
next Wednesday? Sure. Home room
programs are pre'tty good when
you pay attention and get out of
them what is meant for you to get.
. . . The time has sure gone by
fast. I guess this program will do.
School days are certainly the happy
and planted to study the require
ments for germination.
TO CUSS ON TESTS
RARE BOOK EXHIBIT
IS SHOWN IN LIBRARY
Next time High Point and
Greensboro match for anything I
suggest that they use a com that’s
not the same on both sides.
HUNT CUSSES HM
Slides, showing phases of Roman
life, were presented to the sopho
more Latin classes last Tuesday
by Miss Wofford. The slides were
secured from Columbia University.
Several pieces of work done by
various Latin pupils were con
tributed to the exhibit at the
teachers’ meeting in Winston-
Salem. Booklets, posters, and
carved work were submitted.
Miss Greenwood’s Science classes
have successfully carried out sev
eral projects lately. The pupils
have made flags showing the differ
ent weather conditions. Reports on
current scientific conditions have
been gathered and will be illus
trated with pictures. These have
been made into a scientific bulletin
Air. Ellington’s civic classes have
been working on a political bulletin
board. Each class is divided into
two sections, one working for
Hoover, and one for Smith. A
prize will be given to the section
having the best board.
A few weeks ago, Mr. Sloan’s
science class went on a field trip
for the purpose of collecting seeds,
and studying their adaptation for
distribution and protection. Seeds
of large plants and small plants
were observed. The relation of seeds
to flowers and seed relationships to
fruits were also taken up. The pu
pils checked the number of kinds
of flowers blooming in the fall.
They will check this again in the
spring, and make a comparison.
The seeds studied are to be kept
Mr. Johnston talked to the
fourth period biology class Thurs
day morning, November 8th. As
the class had been correcting the
freshman intelligence tests, the
principal chose intelligence as his
subject. He took care to dlnstin-
gulsh for the students the difference
between intelligence and knowl
edge. He said that intelligence was
a gift with which all are endowed at
birth. Without doubt, some have
more intelligence than others, the
speaker told the class.
In other parts of the address, the
principal made clear the fact that
even those who are rated the same
in intelligence are not always able
to do the same things well. Some
have talents that he in the direction
of mathematics, while others do
well in mechanical work.
Intelligence does not increase
with knowledge, according to Mr.
Johnston. Two boys who are classed
as equals when they are graduated
from high school, will be equal
when they finish college. Their
knowledge may be increased, but
their intelligence cannot.
Intelligence tests in college are
the means of a teacher’s determin
ing whether or not the student is
capable of taking studies that are
The biology class will study in
telligence in their course soon.

of which are old and some of which
are very rare.
The largest book in the collection
Is the Glascom’s “Drawing-Room
Pictorial’’ which is a very amusing
and entertaining volume. There is
a copy of “Songs for the Little
Ones at Home,’’ which shows the
kind of songs which were popular
as lullabies a number of years ago.
Interesting to the present students
of geometry is the old geometry
book which Is a part of the col
lection. This seems very old-
fashioned to the modern geometry
Among the people who have lent
their boohs for the use of the library
exhibit are: Mrs. W. G. Shipman,
Mrs. Bascom Hoskins, Rev. Hil
liard, and Mary Drew and Caroline
