PUBLISHED AS A SUPPLEMENT TO HIGH LIFE BY THE CITY SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION
AIHLEIIC PROGRAM WILL
With an enrollment of 75 active
members and a large group of as
sociates, the Girls' Athletic Associa
tion is one of the dynamic forces of
our high school. Under the “point
system” adopted last year, 29 honors
were awarded, 7 state emblems and
22 “G’.s” Many girls have won points
during the summer, at camp, in tennis
tournaments, and at the Y. W. C. A.
All indications presage the best
year in our history. The student
council is made up of an earnest
group of girls. There is a larger
group of capable coaches than ever
before, and they are planning to
broaden the field of activities to in
clude more sports and to reach more
The association is fortunate in hav
ing secured the use of the Y. W. C. A.
tennis courts and the splendid new
gymnasium for four afternoons each
week. The schedule will include
the following activities:
1st. Hiking, with the delightful
by-sports of breakfasts and suppers
in the woods, and week-end camps.
2nd. Basketball will be organized
in class teams for the fall closing
with an inter-class tournament. The
varsity squad which will go into ac
tion immediatly after the class tour
nament, will be a strong one, as there
are good players who have develop
ed under skilful coaches during the
past three years.
The association hopes to work out
and demonstrate during the season,
the new game of basket ball, which
has been submitted to the National
Committee by Mr. Parks.
3rd. The fall tennis tournament
is now on—the livliest ever staged
here. There will be a spring tour-
ament, practice for which keeps the
tennis stars busy whenever the weath
The coaches will devote some time
to the development of a large group
of girls who are unfamiliar with the

popular sport this year.
5th. Two courses in folk dancing
and games will be offered for course
for Freshman and one for the upper
grades. For these groups the Y. W. C.
A. hut will be available.
6th. In connection with each sport,
some form of gymnastic work will be
given. In addition to these, short-
period setting-up exercises, some cor

1,000 COPILS OL HIGH LILL
A plan has been developed this
fall which will make it possible to
deliver to every home represented in
the High School and in the 7 grades
of the Grammar Schools one copy of
the High School paper each time it
It will carry Grammar School news
as well as High School news. Each
parent should be certain to get each
copy because it will contain a di
rect message from the school author
ities in addition to the various things
of local interest to students. If you
fail to get it ask your child why.
True Scholarship Basis
of School Work
One of the outstanding achiev-
ments of this committee last session
was the organization of the “Torch
Light Society,” a local branch of hte
“National Honor Society of Second
ary Schools.” This society, while
scarcely a year old, is functioning in
Arizona, Washington, Minnesota,
Maine, Florida and Tennessee, so it
goes without saying that Greensboro
is duly proud of being the pioneer
club of N. C., to take this forward
The committee plans staging a pro
gram with the Torch Light Society in
chapel, in the near future, for the pur
pose of boosting scholarship. It is
their aim to read a new meaning into
the term “A” student, making the
student-body realize all A’s don't have
their beginning and ending in ath
letics, but that there is a group of
silent workers among us just as
worthy of applause as the heroes of
the gridiron. And they feel that from
time to time, giving some publicity
to this group, and through them, and
whatever outside help they may de
sire, giving sufficient emphasis to the
importance and reward of sound
scholarship as to make so popular the
desire for good grades that the atmos
phere will become decidedly un
healthy for failures.
The scholarship shield will be
awarded this month to the room hav
ing the smallest per cent of failures.
Miss Richards Plans
The purpose of the dramatic club
is not only to present programs, but
also to keep informed concerning
what is what and why in the world
of drama today.
We hope to contribute to the na
tion-wide movement of more plays
for more people, and thus convince
ourselves and our audiences that the
charm of spoken lines is even great
er than that of the silent drama—
the moving pictures. In other words,
“speakies” versus “movies,” with
“speakies” in the lead.
It is our plan to develop a series
I of class programs, exercises, and
* short plays with possibly two long
.* plays given throughout the year.

Work In Music To Be
The purpose of this sheet is
to keep bejor the patrons of the
schools the latest information
regarding the school system and
its program. Interesting com
parative material will be pre
sented from time to time. In
other words., it is to be the
publicity sheet for the Greens
boro City Schols. It should
be read carefully and preserved
for future reference.
The first issue will be devot
ed to the High School program
of the year. Much vital infor
mation can be obtained from
this sheet. Each activity of
the High School has been brief
ly outlined and is being pre
sented in this issue.
BOYS’ ATHLETIC PROGRAM
TO BE A
1. Program aims:
1. To develop singnig in school.
2. To train a mixed chorus.
3. To train orchestra and string
2. Chapel Singing.
This work is in charge of Mr. Bar
ton. Each morning hymns and pop
ular songs are sung. Pupils are re
3. Mixed Chorus.
Miss Harris has charge of this or
ganization, which has 36 members,
all girls. It meets twice a week.
Two concerts are planned for the
year. Chorus will assist in chapel
4. Orchestra and String Band.
The orchestra now has 17 mem
bers, it meets twice a week and pur
poses to play regularly at chapel.
Popular and classical music will be
played. The string band is bein:
organized at present.
The fact that nine men have been
secured as members of the High
School faculty with the very defin
ite understanding that wise leader
ship of boys is vital, means that ath
letics for boys must have a big place
in the High School.
In outline forms the program is
1st. Class and group contests in
all sports actually will be developed.
This includes football, basketball,
track and field work, baseball, tennis
and volley ball.
2nd. The main squads in all
sports must carry a large number of
players and arrange a schedule of
games for the second, and if possi
ble the third teams. This is being
done in football.
3. The culmination of this system
will be the 1st team in all sports
which will come as a result of the pro
gram being developed. These teams
shall represent the school in all inter
school contests in accordance with
the State championship regulations.
4th. The coaching of all teams
shall be done by members of the
High School faculty who carry reg
ular schedule work in the class rooms,
and who stand for the highest stand
ards in athletics.
CENTRAL CAROLINA LAIR
The dates of the Central Carolina
Fair are October 10-13 inclusive. The
City Board of Education has gone
thoroughly into the matter, and has
taken the stand that it would not be
best for the health of the school
children for a holiday to be given.
It is hoped that parents who still in
sist on taking their children to the
Fair, will do so after school hours.
Any notes sent with the request that
a child be dismissed at a certain time
of dav other than the regular time
for dismissal will not be honored.
It is the privilege of a parent, of
course, to keep a child out of school
provided he can do so in the defiance
of the law, which says that children
must be in school. It is equally the
privilege of the school authorities to
refuse to allow a child to leave the
school house except in case of a trag
edy or an emergency. Parents who
come to the school, therefore, and de
mand that their children be allowed
to accompany them over the pro
test of the principal will be asked to
take up with the Superintendent of
Schools the matter of re-entering
their children in the school system.

Aims of Chapel Com
The chapel committee realizes that
the period, in each day, from 10:30
to 11:15 o’clock, whether in session
room or Auditorium can be made
a vital part of the pupils’ life.
The aims of the committee are
stated briefly as follows:
1. A part of the period is to be
used in a devotional way, including
scripture reading and prayer.
2. The programs are to be plan
ned in a systematic way so that
they will represent all school activ
3. The classes, departments and
special groups are to have charge of
the programs from time to time.
This will give individual pupils a
chance to overcome self concious-
ness, and it will give opportunity
to develop clear thinknig and oral
expression. This plan will enable
the pupils to know the faculty better.
And special groups will have oppor
tunity to make known their work.
4. Visitors will be invited from
time to time.
N. C. GIRLS’ ATHLETIC ASS’N
GREENSBORO A MEMBER
To understand fully the athletic
program for girls, a close study of
the aims and plans of the State asso
ciation which was organized last year
is very necessary.
The purpose of this organization is
to standardize and popularize all
forms of physical work for girls,
and in order to do that a system of
points and honors has been worked
out. A brief statement of this sys
tem follows and will enable the read
er to understand more fully the work
of the athletic association.
Section 1. Group 1.
1. Regular and satisfactory work
on any squad or team, (season) 20.
(A girl must come out for at least
60 per cent of practice to earn these
2. Participation in any “official

additional. Third place in any one
contest, 5 additional.

score less than a 3 mile hike, 1).
(No season score for less than 15
miles.) Hiking must be done under
supervision of some appointed per

cil, 10-25. b. Office in athlectic as

three-fourths of all subjects for three
months previous to awarding letter
necessary to quality.
(Continued on pasre 2)
Any pupil who is not in his or her
session room seat before the 8:45
bell stops ringing, is tardy and must
report for 1 hour to the tardy room
after school. This rule is not varied
except when a child is late because
of serious accident or emergency.
Students who are absent for any
reason whatever must bring a state
ment as to the cause of the absence
on the morning of the first day of re
turn to school. This statement is
passed upon by school authorities who
determine its validity in accordance
with the school law. Each student
is checked as having an excused or
an unexcused absence from school.
An excused absence permits the stud
ent to make up the work missed.
The unexcused absence means that a
zero must be marked against the stud
ent for the day or days absent. This
affects his standing in scholarship.
Any student who is sick is sent home
with a blank for the parent to sign.
This blank m^ust be sent back to the
school for a record. Many pupils
want to go home who are not
sick, and should be returned by the
parent at once. ‘ '
Dinner Plan \
Dinner is served at the H. S. caf
eteria each day from 11:15 until
1:45. This enables the school to serve
lunch to a number more than could
be done otherwise. Any pupil who
wants to go home for dinner may
have a card properly signed by par
ents which will allow students to
go home for a warm lunch. Any
loitering on the way for any purpose
will be sufficient cause for the Prin
cipal to refuse to allow the student
to leave the grounds at all.
Wholesome lunches are served at
the High Schol cafeteria at very
reasonable prices. • It is not a profit
making cafeteria. Parents are in
vited to come and take lunch any day.
Supervision of Grounds and Buildings
The schedule is so arranged that
at each period of the day there is -at
least one man and one woman, mem
bers of the faculty, for supervision
of the plant. In this way there is no
possibility of loitering around the
building, or any development of any
wasteful habits among students.
It is absolutely necessary that High
School students study outside of the
school hours. Five periods of class
work is the normal load at present.

Miss Killingsworth To Be
Dean of Girls Again
The office of Dean of Girls was
created one year ago. Its purpose
has been to provide for girls the
highest type of leadership and inti
mate direction in life’s problems.
Thus far, effort has been made to
study the problems of the Greens
boro High Schol girls, and then to
develop a program to help them. The
two big terms of social and moral
guidance covers the work. By phone,
visiting, and by letters the Dean of
girls tries to keep in touch with tiie
homes of the girls. Absences, fail
ures and misunderstandings are all
problems for her consideration. Par
ents should find in this person the as
sistance they often want in educating
