The purpose of the publicity com-

of any interest to the public, is report
ed to the local newspapers on time.
Through the secretary of each organ
ization the committee will be kept
The Greensboro Daily News has
offered space daily for High School
news. The Record will give in ad
dition a special space on Friday.
The High School is greatly indebted
to the local papers for this courtesy.

Social Committee Ideals
All normal people demand social
life. Hence the work of the social
committee is no insignificant task.
Recognizing the importance of this
committee, the need of worth while
and wholesom amusements for high
school boys and girls, the faculty
committee worked with a student so
cial committee. The work of the
ojint committee is stated in the fol
lowing aims and ideals for Greens
boro High School.
1. The social life is to be planned
so that each boy and girl may have
part in some social event during the
2. Each social event with a list
of chaperones must be reported to
the chairman of the Faculty social
committee. This will prevent too
many socials coming together, and
will provide proper chaperonage.
3. Each sesion room may have
a party and a picnic during the year.
In each event, the session room teach
er will be responsible for entertain
ment and chaperonage.
4. Parties or entertainments may
be given to visiting teams, provided
the coach and a represenative from
the team notify the chairman of the
faculty social committee. This no
tice must be given at least two days
before. The student social commit
tee will be responsible for the enter
tainment of these events.
5. No party or social event shall
last longer than eleven o’clock.
6. The social committee 'shall
discourage mid-week parties, and
endeavor to have all social functions
come during week-ends. The com
mittee will not allow individuals or
groups leaving any school event be
fore it is over, to go any other place
7. Every social function coming
under the name of the High School
is to be held in the Y. W. C. A.
hut (which may be had every Fri
day and Saturday night) the school
building, or place approved by the
first thing we did was to go in swim
ming. After we had swum for about
half an hour all of us climbed up
a huge tree and had our picture taken.
After which we went in the woods
where we climbed trees. We brought
back wood for the campfire. About
6 o’clock the service girls prepared
the lunch while the rest roasted wee
nies. We started back home about
seven o’clock and after a day of
pleasure and fun we bade each other

Lee Street School Items
Ten forty-five in the morning is
the period looked forward to with
the greatest pleasure by the primary
children of the Lee Street School.
Unlike the recesses of a few years
ago, there are no stragglers hanging
around, no wall-flowers too timid tol
join in the activities of the more nor-[
mal children. No teachers are stand-!
ing about or sitting in the shade, j
waiting to settle the innumerable dis-!
putes, which are so inevitable under |
such conditions. j
Instead of such a scene of ques-'
tionable enjoyment by a few, every;
person on the ground is actively and |
profitably engaged in having a good;
time. Led by the teacher, each grade, i
occupying a different part of the [
yard, is vitally interested in putting i
into practice the games selected and i
presented by our play ground super-'
In this way minds and bodies are,
not only being refreshed and invig
orated, but each child is learning to
participate with his fellows. He is
learning the laws, which are the bas

and fair play.

One of the things of which Lind
say is proud is its auditorium. Here
the grammar grades meet twice a
week, and the primary grades once
a week, for opening eercises. On
Monday morning, an invitation is ex
tended to a minister or other person
of prominence to lead in our devo
tional exercises, which jt is the poli
cy of the school to hold daily, either
in the chapel or in each classroom
separately. On Wednesday morning,
after a devotional service led by Miss
Irvin, some grade gives a program
which shows some phase of its work.
Visitors are always welcome to these
Great improvement has been made
in the library. Shelves have been
placed in the rear of the Auditorium,
and on them are 2,367 volumes. Some
of these form Lindsay’s quota of the
books given by Mr. Archer for a
school library. Year before last the
outgoing seventh grade donated $.30
to be spent for books. Last year’s
outgoing class raised $85 for the
same purpose. The Parent-Teacher
Association last year bent every ef
fort toward obtaining books, with the
result that approximately $450 was
spent by that organization to enlarge
our library. In addition to the
bound volumes, many of the leading
magazines and newspapers have been
Desks have placed in the rear of
the Auditorium, so that the books and
magazines are now available for ref

be a great aid to us in our work, and
any contributions will be gratefully
received. We hope for a material
increase of volumes when “Book

The Lindsay Street School Par
ent-Teacher Association has defin
itely set the first Tuesday in each
calendar month for its meetings. It
is hoped that the parents will meet
with the teachers; discuss with them
the child’s problems, progress, wel
fare, and n6eds. Parents and teach
ers will then have a mutual respon
sibility in making the school year
of 1922-1923 a worth while one in the
school life of each child. Visit the
schools frequently and observe the
work being done in the school room
and on the playground.
The teacher needs the parent’s co
operation, especially in' regard to
tardies, and absences. Our slogan is:
“Every child in school every day
and on time.”
Each student in High School has
forty-five minutes of ^recreation a

C Continued from pago 11
Since there are only six periods for
each student besides the chapel and
dinner periods, it is evident that a
reasonable amount of home study
is necessary. No student should get
up less than three subjects at home
each day. In some cases it would
be necessary to do more. Parents
should note this fact wdth care, con
stant vigilance in this respect will
tend to reduce failures.
The policy this year will be to give
students an opportunity to keep up
the work as they are now classified.
If, however, there is continued fail
ure, it will be necessary to take steps
to place the students where they can
do the work.

Boost for every new^ improvement

Each student is given a report for
the month on the 1st Wednesday af
ter the end of the school month. This
is supposed to be signed by the par
ent or guardian and returned the
next day. Parents should see that
their children bring that report in
promptly and that it is sent back.
Continued failures on this report
ought to bring about a visit to the
school for a conference with the prin
cipal and teachers who are anxious to
cooperate. The letter “D” is a fail
ure now instead of a “C—” as in the
N. C. Girls’ Athlectic Ass’n.

Care of Books
Each pupil is held responsible for
all books issued to him. It some
times happens that books are not lost
through carelessness, but in most
cases that is the reason. A lost book
must be paid for within three days
and the new book issued. It the
book is found later, a refund will be
made. Parents should impress upon
children the importance of caring for
school books and school property.
While no one likes to hear com
plaints, the administrators ‘of the
High School are aware of the fact that
an organization of such size cannot
be operated without some mistakes
and misunderstandings. In view of
this fact it is very desirable that any
complaint of any nature should be
made to the proper authorities. The
Principal, through the very efficient
secretary in the office can always be
called about any matter of importance
to the pupils of the High School.
This secretary can in many cases clear
up matters with a very few words.
Communicating With Pupils During
Parents should not assume that a
pupil can be called to the phone at
any and all times of the day for va
rious matters. The school rule is
that no student may use the tele
phone m the office except in case of
an accident or other emergency, this
applies to both the matter of the stud
ent calling and to the parent calling
for the student.
Emergency messages only will be
tak^n and delivered by the secretary.
Section 3. Aivarding of Honors
1. Honors shall be awarded by
the athletic council and approved by
the scholarship committee.
2. Citizenship shall be decided

We challenge any school in the
State association to present better re
sults than ours from the training reg
ulations. The beneficial effects upon
the girls who w^re in training last
year has been a subject of comment,
both by the girls /.themselves and
their mothers, and a large number
have already signed up for training-
The association is pledged to main
tain the high standards of citizenship
set up by the council of last year.
No girl wdiose ideals are unworthy
can hope to be awarded honors.
In brief, the athlectic program for
the girls aims to reach each one m i
some way. It aims to develop whole- ,
some individuals, group and class
rivalry throughout the year, and when ^
wise, to use the skills’ thus developed .k
against schools in reach of Greens- ■j
boro in clean inter-school contests.
