“HIGH” LIFE, JANUARY 27, 1922.
GIRLS WIN DOUBLE HEADER
FROM WINSTON-SALEM AND
First Double Program Ever Sta'ged
in Greensboro by the Girls’ Team.
Probably the most exciting games
ever staged here were played last
Tuesday night at the Y. M, C. A.
It was the first time that the girls
had ever played two games in one
night, but they showed W. H. S. and
R. JI. S. that they could master any
The first game was called at 7:30.
Both Winston and Greensboro went
out on the floor with a dash, but
soon W,inston cooled down under
Greensboro’s fast guards, while a
neat score was pulled up by Greens
boro's forwards. In the second half
Greensboro put on a new team and
doubled the score in the first half.
W^hen the final whistle blew the
score stood 45-4 in favor of Greens
After ten minutes' rest the sec
ond game was called with Raleigh.
Before playing five minutes both
teams realized that there was a hard
fight ahead of Ahem to outdo the
others. As the results at the end
of the half score was tied. Each
team was more determined than ever
to win and played harder than before.
The game was very exciting, a goal
for one side then the other, and kept
the crowd in an uproar all the time.
At the end of the game the score
was still tied and an additional five
minutes was played. The outcome of
this was 21-19 for Greensboro.
If Greensboro High School con
tinues to support her teams as she
did last Wednesday and Tuesday, the
championship of N. C. is certain.
The cheering so ably led by Mr.
Purrington was especially good.

BILL AND HIS “EXA.MS.’
ENTERTAINMENT IN HONOR OF
RALEIGH AND WINSTON
Decorations Very Appropriate for
the Occasion.. Many Speeches
Made By the Girls
The Basketball girls of the Greens
boro High School entertained the
Raleigh and Winston teams at a
High School cafeteria.
They were met at the door by
Margaret Stockton, Eunice Stamey,
Helen Smith, Elizabeth Wilson, Em
ma Leah Watson, Lucille Boone,
Mary Anderson, and Louise Smith.
These girls were dressed in white
middy suits with caps and aprons
made of purple and gold paper.
The room was decorated in the
colors of the three teams. The tables
were put together in a square in the’
center of which was a smaller table
■with a basketball court on it.
The goals were wrapped in the
school colors. At the end of the
court were two dolLs. One was ready
to pitch a foul goal, the other was
on the line.
The Winston tables haR their colors
around it. Since Raleigh and Greens
boro colors were the same their ta
bles were in the same colors as
ours. At each seat was a miniature
pot of flowers with a yellow bow of‘
ribbon tied around it to carry out
the color scheme of the home team.
The Greensboro girls sang several
very appropriate songs. Nellie Irvin,
the president, called on several out
of each team to respond to the fun.
Margaret Atwater and Margaret Pat
terson recited several poems to add
to the enjoyment of the supper.
The supper was thoroughly en
joyed by each one present and the
visiting teams seemed very anxiou.5

Skipper and Bill were on their
way home from school. Bill, the “all
state full back” and star “C—” pupil
of Centre “High,’' was giving Skip
per some insights on one of the for
mer games, in which Bill had starred.
When all at once the expression on
his face was transformed from a
victorious grin, into a sickly beaten
“Gee Whiz, Skipper! Only one
week till Exams. On how many
must I flunk and which ? Skipper,
if old man Grammar doesn’t pass
me on English V. he just might as
well prepare for his funeral. Miss
Commentary wouldn’t pass me on
Caesar if her life depended on it
but take my word this is my last
semester with noble Caesar if I have
i to drop it. Then there’s Miss Tri
angle, who claims my upper story
is vacant, and who has flunked me
every month this year. This looks
like a boy is going to,repeat semes
ter V. doesn’t it? I believe I'll quit
school and end it all.
“What are you doing with all those
books, Skipper, you know you are
going to be exempt on everything? I
haven’t carried but one book home
this year. I wouldn’t have carried
that but Miss Vacuum was in the !
hall and I wanted to prove to her
that I studied my physics.” i
“Bill, my Dad says, that I have to |
take all my exams, exemption or no
exemption, so I thought that I had
better be shining up my Caesar, etc.,
a.s I don’t wan’t to be so ignorant
when the time arrives. You can’t be
exempt on but two subjects anyway”
“Your Dad not goin to let
you be exempt! What’s ailing him?
Now for the new law cutting out
exemptions, although it won’t affect
me, I think it a mess, and the prin
cipal or whoever made the law
should be kicked. Furthermoi'e,
Skipper, I don’t understand why we
have these old examinations, they are
such a nuisance. If 1 could only
meet the fellow (I know he must
have a soft spot on his brain) who
invented exams I would tackle him
and preparation which enables you
“low” and fix him so he would invent
“Dad says. Bill, that exams are
good for you and I know if you
have studied during the year you will
float when exam time comes, Bill,
teachers don’t decide whether you are
going to flunk or pass. You, your
own self, decide that matter. Exams
which you take now help you when
you go to college. Quizzes are the
professors long suits (I have been
told). So if you are used to them
you won’t be scared out of your wits
if one of the old Professors would
spring one and “ ” “, I’m not

that exams help me as I feel w’orse
after them than I do before ”
“But Bill, let me finish. To be a
man you must be able to stand
the exams or tests of life. Y’ou,
if you are not going to college, want
to be a man don’t you? Well, how
far in the world do men get, these
days, who are not able to stand
tests? You must be prepared, and
must have had practice before you

examination gives you this practice
Success Made Up of Attention to Job
Plus the Courage to Stand Alone
Mr. Paul Rader, former pastor of
one of the largest churches in Amer
ica and an intellectual figure, who
has been conducting a series of re
vival services at the Church of the
Covenant gave a very inspiring talk
in chapel Friday.
He spoke of putting yourself 100
per cent into whateer task there
is to perform. Athletics, studies,
business, all, in order to be a real
success, demand 100 per cent of your
self, every ounce of your ability.
The qualities that go to make up
a successful athlete are not always
those embodied in mere physical'per
fection. It is something in the man.
More often than not the lesser man,
physically, wdll be successful due to
that subtle something, when the man
with a perfect physique will be a
failure, said Mr. Rader.
