MISS WEBER OF N. C. C. W.
TALKS ON DISARMAMENT
The Arms Conference was the sub
ject of Miss Weber’s edifying talk
in chapel last Wednesday.
Miss Weber said that nations have
tried to prevent war in three ways:
(1) By the balance of power, (2)
by arbitration, (3) by the association
These methods failed, due to secret
treaties, which made nations distrust
ful of each other, competitive arm
aments, and commercial and colonial
The Disarmament Conference has
a new method: namely, to prevent
war before it starts.
Miss W^ebef told briefly of the
work that the Arms Conference has
done, and of the important decisions
There were nine (9) nations re
presented at the conference. The
representatives from the U. S. were
Hughes, Root, Underwood, and
Lodge, led by Hughes.—M. Blair.

should make a valentine upon which
a Latin inscription was to he written.
Names were drawn and in this man

ceived a valentine. As a result, there
were many Latin verses, several oi
which were translations of that well
known English ditty “Roses are red^
violets are blue, sugar is sweet, ana
so are yo».” Others ran “The rope
is sweet it is true, but none can he so
sweet as you.” Then there were the

besides numerous original expreS'
sions. The class learned many new
words which could never be discover
ed in “The Orations of Marcus lul-
lius Cicero.” They would like to
abandon “Kickero” entirely if they
could enjoy such a lesson every day.

The Jewish Relief drive recently
made in Greensboro proved to be an
overwhelming success. Many indi'vid-
uals subscribed to help this humane
undertaking. The pupils of room 101,
who are always among the first in
the important movements in G. H. S.,
thought it fitting and expedient that
they do their bit in helping to raise
fallen humanity, so under the direc
tion of Miss Jane Summerell, who is
teacher of that session room, some
thing over five dollars was collected
and sent to the Jewish Relief Fund
Committee to add to the already
large sum subscribed.

ing leaving G. H. S. for Augusta Mil
It seemed that all the Military folks
were after “Willie”, including the
captain of the baseball team, who
came after him with the determined
purpose to take him Hack.
But Bruce’s faith held. The teach

lows had more of a pull with our
captain than the Augusta Folks—And
Bruce remains with us.
Luck to you, Baseball Captain.
