THE OPEN FORUM
Mr. Editor, Readers, and Faculty:-
Do you not think some one has
shirked, or overlooked his or her duty
in regard to some Literar>- Societies?
Is it not high time someone was busy
organizing a society for the promo
tion of public speaking in our school?
L. H. S. has been in existence for
quite a number of years, and since
1920 not one Literary organization
has been formed. Every few days
some student expresses his or her de
sire for an organization of this kind,
tut what can a few students do with
out help? I am intensely interested
in this kind of work, and there are
many more students throughout the
High School who would f;:i; in line
immediately if this organiz.ation was
started Let’s start it.

CONCORD, SCORE 6-0
On Friday, the 24th, our football
team defeated Concord in an exciting
game by a score of G-0. During,the
first five minutes of play, Lexington
pushed the ball over for the one and
only touchdown. On the try for goal,
the ball went wild.
During the first half Lexing’ton
outclassed Concord in every way. But
an unlucky fumble prevented her
from’ scoring again. Dick Cecil
played a great defensive game, as did
In the second half, Lexington did
not show up as good as in the first.
Several times Concord men tackled
our backfield men behind the line of
scrimmage. Nevertheless Lexing
ton played the better game.
Several times during the game Con
cord men got away for long runs.
These runs carried the ball out of
Concord’s danger zone, and iirobably
prevented othed touchdowns.
The game was well attended.

t-ood old High School.
The Lexington High School is
without one great factor that helps
to make up a first class school. This
is a school orchestra. There is
much talent that has been disidayed
in this school in former years, and
we believe that if we tr.v hard enough,
this talent, which has partly dOap-
jieared will again come into view.
Why can’t a high school as barge .as
ours, which boasts of everything
worth while, have a fine orchest.-a?
This is a question that we want an
swered. It is not up to the teacheis
and principal to make this thing “a
go,” but up to the entire student
body. Many of our students play
different musical instruments, id
for this reason it will not be ver.v
much trouble to organize a music .1
club. Mi.ss Greenfield is willing to
give her sujiport and we know what
that means for we can rely on her
as she h.as always helped us.
