The members of the University
of North Carolina, deputation team
arrived in the city last Friday morn
ing, and presented to the boys of the
high school some of the activities of
the college campus and their rela
tionship to the fight in the game of
life. Charles W. Phillips, member
of the school faculty, presided over
the meeting, and. introduced H. F.
Comer, secretary of the university
Y. M. C. A., who then took charge
of the program. In addition to
the talks which were made by mem
bers of the deputation team, the
quartet accompanying the team ren
dered a vocal selection.
In his remarks to the boys, Mr.
Comer stated that the purpose of
the team in coming to the city was
to talk over with the boys any prob
lems which they might desire to have
solved. He said that the members of
the team understood the problems of
youths and were anxious that the
boys would take them into their con
fidence in these matters.
C. C. Poindexter, member of the
football squad for two seasons, in his
talk to the boys, drew an analogy
between the gridiron game and the
game of life. Using as his subject
the “Game of Life from the Stand
point of the Football Player,” the
speaker stated that the boys in
high school today are the substitutes
who are waiting on the side-lines
ready to be called into the game of
life which is being played by their
J. 0. Harmon, in a short talk told
his hearers that every boy should
make an effort to attend some college
or university. Continuing, Mr. Har
mon asserted that every boy could
make his way through school by
honest work if he had the necessary
ambition. That man who pays his
own way through college by working
is highly respected by the other stu
dents. was another assertion made.
He stated that about 85 per cent
of the students in the university are
paying their way through school en
tirely or in part, and that about
50 per cent are making all their ex
pense by working during the school
months or during the vacation period.
Included in the team are H. R.
Comer, J. 0. Harmon, L. G. Wilson,
C. C. Poindexter, W. B. Hunt, A. D.
Raper, R. E. Brown and J. O. Hazlitt.

DEBATING CLUB DISCUSSED
TRIANGULAR DEBATE PLANS
Nellie Irvin and Catherine Grantham
Win in War Debts Discussion.
On Tuesday night, JaJn 10th, the
Debating Club held its semi-monthly
meeting in the school library. Gladys
Holland, president of the club, pre
sided over the meeting.
The first part of the program was
devoted to business. Plans for the
Triangular Debate were discussed
and many of the members of the
club expressed their intention of go
ing out for the Triangular. It was
decided that the preliminaries would
be held in public about the fifteenth
The latter part of the program was
a debate; the query “Resolved that
all war debts should be cancelled,”
proved to be a very debatable ques
tion. The affirmative was upheld by
Robert Irvin and Hubert Rawlins,
while the negative was supported by
Katherine Grantham and Nellie Irvin.
The judges. Miss Baker, Mr. C. W.
Phillips, and Edwin Hale decided in
favor of the negative.
Despite the inclement weather, a
good crowd was on hand. After a
very enjoyable evening, the meeting

HIGH SCHOOL CORRIDOR
TROPHY CABINET PLACED IN
MAIN HALL OF G. H. S.
Among the most needed additions
to the High School is a handsome
cup cabinet in the hail. This cabinet
was secured through the Athletic As
sociation. For many years our school
saw little need for such a piece of
furniture. But of late teams have
shown their unrivaled ability by the
trophy cups which they brought
home. The number increased so
that the shelf in the office would not
reain them all—hence the handsome
Now a casual passerby can hardly
come to our school without coming
just a little closer to this cabinet,
and without scrutinizing its contents
These beautiful and hard-fought-
for cups show up to a real advan
tage in their new re.sting place.
They represent the many battles
in which our various teams have
excelled. Greensboro High school
is indeed grateful for its new cabinet
and the entire student body hopes
that before many years it will be
filled with symbolic cups.

This being Thrift Week the install
ing of the automatic teller in the
hall comes coincident to the occasion.
The machine which resembles a
chewing gum machine is furnished
by the American Exchange National
Bank. If the machine is received
as successfully as it has been in
other cities a good deal of money
will pass through its slots between
now and June.
One cent, five cents, ten cents, or
twenty-five cents can be deposited.
When a coin is dropped into the slot,
j the depositor is presented with a
receipt in the form of a stamp
showing the amount deposited. The
.stamps are pasted in a little book
until the book contains a certain
number. The book is then carried
to the bank where a pass-book show
ing the depositor’s credit is issued.
The automatic teller is a handy
means of saving odd change for a
rainy day. A small saving deposit
each week will amount to a good
sized sum. High school students
are expected to enter into the plan
with a will and make every week a
