THE OPEN FORUM
In the last issue of the “Lexhipep”
an article was published to this effect:
“Why isn’t the basket-ball team, this
year good as those in years gone by?”
Here is your answer: This year
a, Lexington made regulation has
c'ome out. It requires the candidate
for the team to get a report from each
of his teachers, every week, stating
that the said candidate's conduct and
recitations are satisfactory. As a re
sult of the new ruling much criticism
is to be found, because the North Car
olina High School rules call for a
passing mark on 3-4 of one’s work.
-Your teams of the past were com-
I>osed of non-eligible “ringers.” Yes,
aad-you kjiow it. .This year we. have
a bunch of boys who pass their work,
conduct themselves properly, and play
hard basket-ball. When they go up
against a team composed of men who
should have graduated when Lincoln
wore swaddling clothes, they are de
feated. That is the reason the team
But, may I ask why the team is
not supported? People find time to
knock the team, and wonder why it
loses, but when it comes to support
ing it they have no time to spare.

UOTARIANS ENTERTAIN BOYS
On Tuesday, January 20th, the Ro
tary Club of this city entertained
boys of the high school and gram
mar school at luncheon, at the March
Hotel. An interesting program, was
given. The Y. M. C. A. director of
Concord spoke, telling why Lexing
ton should have a “Y.” He told of
the interesting work being arranged
for boys of Concord, and of a great
Bible contest being held there now.
After this talk, Rotarlan Ray Mc
Crary was called on for a speech
and he responded with a wonderful
talk, urging that Lexington give more
of its thought to the boys of this city,
by teaching them the principles of
clean manhood in Y. M. C. A. The
Rotary Club president told of the
custom of the club to entertain the
boys each year and expressed his
wish that this be continued for many
more years. The meeting this year
was a big success and the boys cer
tainly appreciate the interest the
Rotary Club is taking in them. The
following High School boys attended
the luncheon: Dwight Johnson, Joe
Moffitt, Cloyd Phllpott, Nat Hunt,
Holland Webster, Ham Hargrave,
Wood Dorsett, Sam Eanes, Odell
