The Greensboro High School bas
ketball team got back into form
after their crushing defeat at the
hands of Durham the night before
and sent the fast Reidsville quin
tet down in defeat, on Friday, Jan.
20, 1922, in Greensboro, by the score
of 38 to 84. The game was slightly
rough and closely contested through
out although the Gate City aggre
gation never failed to show its su
periority in passing and in shooting.
The half started off with both
teams fighting hard. Biitton and
Daniel starred for Greensboro while
Chance did stellar work for Reids
ville in this period. The Greensboro
bunch got in some pretty passing
during this period as the Reidsville
aggregation also did, but by better
shooting Greensboro nosed out ahead
and the half ended with the score
21 to 18 in Greensboro’s favor.
The second half was also closely
contested and so hard did the Greens
boro bunch play that one guard
was out on personal fouls. Reids
ville also played hard and as a re
sult scored almost as many points
as did the Greensboro team. Daniel's
was the outstanding star for Greens
boro while Chance played sensational
ball for Reidsville, the little forward
caging a majority of his team’s
points. The half ended w'ith the
score 38 to 84 in Greensboro's favor.

-A TRUE MAN” SUBJECT OF DR.
MYER’S TALK IN CHAPEL.
With the help of the entire student
body the Senior class hopes to put
■ out a bigger and better annual this
year than has ever been put out at
G. H. S. before. This year’s Reflec
tor is going to be a good deal larger
, than theS preceding one and it is go
ing to contain various new depart
ments and new features. School ac
tivities have grown considerably dur
ing the last few months and all
, these new organizations will be cared
, for in the Annual in a unique way.
On account of lack of space it has
■ been impossible during these last few
; yeai*s to accommodate all the stu
dents of the High School in the same
building and for this reason we be-
lieve that everything possible should
be done to consolidate the school and
I make the main building and the an-
, nexes as a unit. With this in mind
■ the staif has set out to make the
1922 Reflector an Annual of Greens
boro High School and not merely of
j the Senior Class. The taking of school
statistics was one of the steps taken
. with this in mind. We hope that
: each Freshman feels that this year’s
j annual is going to be just as much
' his as it is any Senior’s.
We also hope to localize our An
nual as much as possible and so
make it not only a High School pro
duction but one that will also have
the stamp of Greensboro on it, for
, we feel that Greensboro is a town
j to be proud of and we plan to
show this in several different ways
in the Annual.
The members of the staff would
not feel so confident in their work
were it not for the help of Mr. Giles
and Miss Dorsett. But with two
such advisiors ever ready to help
in any way they can and with the
backing of the school we don’t see
how the Reflector of ’22 can be any
thing but a huge success.
Coach Rabenhorst Presented “W.”

The first part of the program was
taken up by the presentation of a
sweater to Mr. Harry Rabenhorst by
George Taylor. This sweater was a
small token of appreciation from
the football boys.
The program was then turned over
to Dr. Myers and his quartet. The
quartet sang two very fine gospel
hymns, and then Dr. Myers began his

Ezekiel: “I sought for a man among

At a hard fougiit contest the

team defeated the Winston-Salem

Accurate shooting and excellent
guarding enabled the local quint to
defeat their lival.
I A large number of local fans wit-

j oped into a royal battle. The Greens-

City locals both in guarding and
' shooting, but 'he visitors played brill-
■ iantly, never losing hope of winning
until the referee’s whistle blew.
Greensboro's team work was a

game, while the playing of Britton

A more solemn and serious occasion
was never witnessed at the Gi’eens-
boro High School! An observer would
have thought that the destiny of the
whole United States depended upon
, how the election was carried out and
; who was elected! The plan of voting
; for the High School Statistics was
that each pupil should register on
Tuesday, Jan. 17th, and should cast
the votes the following. Thursday.
Everything would be done in a nice
quiet, orderly way-—but no such elec
tion as this could be carried off
without a great deal of politics in
volved. It is true the pupils register
ed on Tuesday and cast their ballots
on Thursday, but my, a great deal
i can happen between Tuesday and
: Thursday. A great deal did happen
between this particular Tuesday and
Thursday. “Soap-Box” orations could
be\heard any time of day or night
on the school grounds in the cafete
ria, or even in the class room. The
teachers entered into the fun of the
election and gave very valuable ad
vice to those whose minds had been
bumfuzzled by some of the wonder-
i ful “soap-box’’ orations. Often the
(teachers soothed a troubled spirit by
I saying “He’s horribly good looking”
: “She’s awfully sweet,” so fourth and
' so fifth.
This is a . democratic age and the
Greensboro Highs are not behind the
; times, on Thursday by 4 o’clock every
High School pupil had cast an in-
! dividual, ballot. (Have pity on the
j ballot-judges I)
I No one should feel badly, for, no
' doubt, everybody in the High School
got a vote of some description.
