FOR A BETTER G. H. S.
Who’s gonna win,
Faculty or Scrubs?
GREENSBORO HIGH SCHOOL, GREENSBORO, N. C., OCT. 20, 1922
UNDEFEATED DMD DEED
TO SINGLE II
S. Taylor and Swift Star i
In spite of the game fight put up
by our pigskin artists Friday after
noon, the Oxford High School veter
ans scored a touchdown during the
second quarter, thereby adding an
other whitewash-victory to their list.
Just as the aerial attack proved the
downfall of the Highs against Ox
ford, this same attack stood out as
being the feature of the game, and
had it not been for losing the ball
and being penalized at critical times
of the game, there would, without a
doubt, have been a different story to
tell about the game. Taylor’s 80-
yard run through G. H. S’s. defense
after intercepting a forward pass
proved to be the play that won the
game, the score being 6 to 0.
The playing of Swift and Bur
roughs stood out for the home team,
while S. Taylor and Royster of Ox
ford showed remarkable skill in run
ning. Our “old reliable” fullback,
McIntosh, kept up the stellar work
he has been doing all season.
During the first quarter the two
teams seemed pretty evenly matched.
“Bus” Swift, receiving the ball at
the very beginning, carried it as far
as the thirty yard line where he was
brought down by an opponent.
Greensboro tried 14 forward pass
es, and of these two were intercepted,
five succeeded and the rest failed.
The Swift to Burroughs combination
was the chief ground gainer in this
part of the local highs’ attack. Once
Burroughs carried the ball over the
goal line only to be called back and
penalized on account of illegal block
ing on the part of some member of
In bucking the Hn^ off-tackle
plays and end runs McIntosh, Sellars
and Wilkins wqre there with ' the
goods. Swift did some very good
punting and threw some beautiful
forward passes. Jackson played well
on the defense.
The visitors tore through the
Greensboro line for repeated gains.
In this they were the most successful
in ground-gaining. The Oxford back-
field was very fast and the team had
good inteference. The last quarter
showed G. H. S. holding this back-
field and the game ended with the
ball in the middle of the field.

Senior Class Chooses
, Last year a standard ring was
adopted for the coming seniors of

the Ring Committee met, it was

the rings had been bought, had brok

decided that a new ring should be

j Mr. J. Foster Barnes, who has

In the Greensboro High School in
the past few days the election of of
ficers of the freshmen class took
place. This was held by a direct
primary and the nominations were
accepted by chairman Kiser in the
High School Auditorium.
The registration and voting was
conducted in the various classes.
Each pupil was required to register
before he could vote. The register
ing took place last Thursday while
the voting was held Monday morn
Chairman Kiser today brought in
the returns of the balloting and the
following were elected by a major
ity of votes: president, Clarence
Scott; vice-president, Charlotte Van
Noppen; secretary, Frederick Eich-
horn; treasurer, Martha Broadhurst.
It is now the purpose of the fresh
man class to make the best freshmen
class the High School has ever had
and to turn out better citizens for
the city of Greensboro.
Away in the heart of the moun
tains of Central Europe there is a
little village in Bavaria, Germany,
called Oberammergau. This little vil
lage is about sixty-five miles from
Munich, and has about fifteen hun
dred inhabitants. Every ten years
a play called “The Passion Play”
is given by the people of this little
village. These people are very re
ligious and Jive devout Christian
A question frequently asked is
why does this little village enact this
play and no other place. Tradition
has it that away back in 1632 a great
plague swept over Europe. A great
many of the people of this little vil
lage were stricken, and so the peo
ple prayed to God to stay this plague.
For this they promised to enact the
life of Christ. This play takes about
seven hundred people, almost half
the village, to enact it. The man
who plays the role of Jesus is A.
In between the scenes of this play
there are several tableaux enacted
to illustrate the wicknedness which
Jesus has come 'to save. The first
tableaux is where Adam and Eve are
driven from the Garden of Eden. The
first real scene of Jesus is where He
is seen riding the ass going into Je
rusalem, and all the people are
cheering Him. Another tableaux is
where Joseph is being sold by his
brothers. Another scene is where
Mary is seen washing the feet of
Jesus and anointing them. The
next scene is The Last Supper where
Jesus is seated with all His disci
ples, including Judas. He tells them
that there is one among them who
will betray Him, and Judas knowing
this, goes away.
The next scene is in the Garden
of Gethemane where Christ is with
His disciples. He goes away and
prays and when He comes back his
disciples are asleep. He awakens
them and again goes and prays. He
I comes back and seeing them asleep
1 again does not awaken them, know
ing He is soon to be betrayed. Soon
afterwards Judas rushes up and
kisses Jesus. Then He is arrested by
the soldiers and taken to Pilate

Girls Basketball Gets
Fine Start This Fall.
The girls of G. H. S. have started
basketball once more. We thought
last year that we had just as much
pep as was possible, but you should
just see those girls play ball. They
have a dandy new • gymnasium in
which to practice. Most of last year’s
basket-ball players fully appreciate
having a real gymnasium, after hav

Miss Myrick is Enjoyed
at Chapel Period
The features of the last chapel
program were the “High School
Stringers” and Miss Susan Myrick
of the Y. W. C. A.
We first had some peppy selections
by the “Stringers,” who have been
trained by Mr. Barton. Our new
football song is due to the originality
of that same gentleman.
Miss Myrick gave a talk on the
adage, “Laugh and Grow Fat,” in
which she demonstrtaed the exercise
of the diaphragm and its benefit to
the system. Then she brought her
point home by making us exercise
our own diaphrams, and act which
she accomplished with a few remarks
anbout “Cats and Ankles” and
“Snake’s Hips,” etc. She announced
the meeting of her Gym class which
is to meet every Tuesday and Thurs
day from five to six p. m. Even
though we did laugh at her, she made
quite a hit with us.
Team Shows Improvement
Last Saturday the Greensboro
High journeyed to Danville where
they met and defeated the Danville
Military Institute with a powerful
running and overhead attack. The
score of 40 to 0 shows how well
“Coach MacFadden’s Team” fought.
Not once were the soldier boys al
lowed to make a first down and not
once did Greensboro have to punt.
The game started off with a rush,
both sides looking good for a few
minutes, but the D. M. I. lads could
not stand the heavy onslaught of
Greensboro’s line, which made open
ings one after the other for our backs
to come through, which they did.
“Big Mac” led off with smashing
strength, followed by that famous
stiff arm. Wilkins showed speed,
while the passing attack with “Bus”
Swift at the throwing end and Bur
roughs, Sellars and Wilkins receiv
ing, puzzled the military for three
touchdowns. “Mac” also showed up
well in drop kicking for points.
The line with Conley and Ford as
guards. Green and Jackson as tack
les, Williams and Burroughs as ends
and the old reliable Block back at
center, not only refused to let the
soldiers make any holes, but often'
threw them for losses. Captain Green
especially had a tendency for throw
ing them back 5 or 10 yards. About
the only thing for Danville to try'
now was passes, but Wilkins and Mc
Intosh blasted their hopes at once.
Irvin, Everett and Koenig, subs
for Greensboro, got in long enough
to get warmed up, each playing good
football. Among the other heroes
of the day were the few who dared
to brave the detours from Greens
boro to Danville thru a cold rain to
follow their team.
The line-up was as follows:
Greensboro-—Green, It; Conley,
Ig; Burroughs, le; Block, c; Ford,
rg; Jackson, rt; Williamson, re;
Swift, qb; Sellars, Ih; Wilkins, rh;
D. M. 1.—Jnoes, le; J. Tudor, It;

Scrubs Hold Asheboro to
G. H. S. scrubs came very near
bringing our first victory back to
G. H. S., when they held the fast
Ashboro team to a scoreless tie. The
game was interesting from the kick
off to the final whistle. Greensboro
lost one excellent opportunity to
score when they were held for downs
on Ashboro’s five yard line. Ashboro,
although able to gain consistently in
their own territory, when Greens
boro’s goal was threatened were held
