On Tuesday, February 25, Miss Kil lingsworth left to attend the National Association of Deans, which meets in Cincinnati this year. This meeting is held in connection with the National Ed ucation Association.. It is composed of deans from colleges and secondary schools. Mrs. Durand, dean of students, and Miss Andrews, social director of N. C. C. W., accompanied Miss Killings worth. The deans will return Saturday. The Torchlight Society prize, given for the best play written to celebrate Better Speech Week, was won by Miss Helen Felder of the High Life staff. A num ber of playlets were submitted, but Miss Felder’s The Conqueror was declared by the judges to be the winner because of its imaginativeness of plot, characteriza tion, and its ease of presentation. The Conqueror is a clever two-act skit in which the Conqueror, a student, by his mighty prowess secured by the use of midnight oil, overcomes the dauntless Verb, the magnificent little Preposition, the bold Sir Noun, and all the other Knights of the Land of Fair Speech. The King, the noble Grammar, and his beautiful Queen, who rule over this tour nament to offset the error of the Queen’s sister. Lady Complex, a flapper true-to- the-type, and so it is in this that Student shows his might. Simple Sentence, the court jester, furnishes fun at the ex pense of all present, especially Lady Complex, who by her wiles tries to win Student. The real climax comes when Student is dubbed a Knight. The prize, a beautiful edition of a classic, was presented Friday morning at (Continued on page six) SENIOR CLASS ACCEPTS GRADUATION INVITATION Classman Gives Sound Advice to the Purchasers. MISS KILLINGSWORTH SPEAKS TO GIRLS FORUM ON “IDEALS” Elizabeth Smith Reads Scripture— Garnett Gregory Welcomes New Girls—Margaret Stockton Sings. FRANCES ELDER MAKES A TALK The sample of the graduation invita tions came last week and by its looks it seems that the invitation committee used good judgment in making the selection. The invitations are selling—or are to be sold—at 13 cents each, but the Sen iors think that they are fully worth the price that is asked for them. Below is the advice one Senior gave his fellow classmates: “It is the custom to send a card to any of your friends when you graduate, and it is good form to send one to your folks, but don’t send any at all unless you are sure that those to whom you are sending them will send back some little present, or token; otherwise you might come out in the hole. “It is not such a bad idea to let those to whom you are sending the invitation know that it costs something and if they feel that they can’t respond with a gift, they can send the card back, if the baby has not eaten it. “But altogether the custom is a good one and every Senior should send out a few invitations just to let people know that he has finally finished pursuing knowledge.” On Friday, February 13, the girls held their monthly meeting in chapel. Vir ginia Bain was in charge of the program. The scripture lesson, which was read by Elizabeth Smith, was taken from the 11th chapter of Proverbs. This was fol lowed by the Lord’s Prayer. Garnett Gregory then gave a very sin cere and friendly greeting to the new girls who have come to the high school during this semester. A talk on courtesy, by Frances Elder, was the next number. “It is not only necessary,” she said, “to be thoughtful and considerate at home, but a certain amount of courtesy is also desirable in the school. And this is for the girls especially. The greatest discourtesy at the high school, in the eyes of the teach ers, is the habit of the fairer sex of ‘mak ing up’ in public.” After this talk Margaret Stockton sang (Continued on page six) SENIOR CLASS CHOOSES TWINS FOR MASCOTS President Appoints Committee to De cide on Seniors’ Gift to Alma Mater. On February 3 the Seniors held a class meeting chiefly for the purpose of choos ing their class mascots. After the min utes of the last meeting had been read and approved the subject of mascots was discussed. The Fisher twins were elected.

MISS MAE BUSH ENTERTAINS THE HIGH SCHOOL FACULTY Miss Bae Bush, High School Librarian, entertained the faculty of the High School at a Valentine party at her home in Irving Park Friday night, February 13, 1925. Red and white, the Valentine colors, were used in a delightful decorative scheme. Place cards took the form of heart-shaped Valentines upon which were charming verses. Red candles provided a pleasant glow at small tables at which supper was served. MR. EDWARDS TALKS ON PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS ‘True Happiness is Achieved Only by Success in Our Daily Lives,” He Asserts. The chapel program on Monday, Feb ruary 9, was conducted by Mr. H. Edwards, principal of the High School, who addressed the students of the main building on the “Pursuit of Happiness.” In opening the exercises Mr. Edwards read the 21st chapter of Proverbs, which is commonly called the “birthday chap ter” because of the 31 verses in it, each one supposed to have special significance for the persons born on that day. In discussing the pursuit of happiness, which is held to be an inalienable right of man by the Declaration of Independ ence, Mr. Edwards pointed out how seri ously high school students pursue their happiness. “There are as many classes of high school students as there are stu dents, but for comparison they can be divided into more or less definite groups,” said Mr. Edwards. “One of the most prominent and hardest to classify of the high school students is the one who is forever ‘chasing rainbows.’ He is always after some honor or imaginary dignity, only to find, when he gets his hands on it, that, like a bubble, it just isn’t. “Exams always bring about other clas sifications. There are always those, re spected and looked up to, who have built up their knowledge day by day by study (Continued on page five) HIGH LIFE EDITORS TO GO TO COLUMBIA PRESS CONVENTION Martha Broadhurst, Virginia McClam- roch, P.

EDWARDS SPEAKS TO LINDSAY STUDENTS Work Hard All the Time, and the Home Stretch Will be Easier, He Advises. REAL MOTION PICTURE MADE IN GREENSBORO Rachel Rees, High School Student, Has Important Role. Great excitement was caused by the announcement that a picture, a real pic ture, would be made in Greensboro, com posed entirely of Greensboro people. In terest was very keen over the choosing of each character and finally, after much consideration, the following were chosen: Susie Brandt, leading lady; Andrew Mc- Glamery, leading boy, and other minor characters. Rachel Reese, a student in G. H. S., takes the part of a minor char acter. A number of the scenes were made at the National theater. Surprise and astonishment were displayed at the way in which the scenes were taken and also at the appearance of the characters. The “wreck” staged at the intersection of Summit avenue and Church street drew a large crowd who were anxious to learn something of trick photography. “Greensboro’s Hero,” the name given to the picture, was shown here the first of this week. A message was received from a New York film company stating that the entry was unusually good for home talent. “If you missed ‘Greens boro’s Hero,’ you missed a treat,” say those who witnessed the picture. At the chapel assembly of the students at Lindsay Street, February 5, Mr. Lee Edwards spoke on “Your Job.” “You have just passed through a week of examinations,” Mr. Edwards began, “which some of you will remember with pride. But others of you will remember with regret because you did not do your duty before the last home stretch. “It is your job now at this age to go to school and acquire an education. But you cannot get one without putting your duty before pleasure and work. I mean work all the time and not just a few days before examinations. You must get in and fight for what you get. Don’t let Latin defeat you. Show it that you are master of it. “There are some,” he continued, “who say now at the beginning of the semes ter that they cannot do a certain subject. Don’t give up before you try. They have admitted defeat at the beginning, have not tried. They have hoisted a white flag before meeting the enemy; laid down the gun without firing a shot. “It is your job to do your lessons now. And what I am trying to say to you is, go on and do them at the beginning. Start now at the first, fight, and carry the victory through. “Now you may be in a good mood,” he continued, “and make resolutions to do your job. But where will you be Wednesday or Thursday night when the time comes for study? When a friend calls up and says, ‘Let’s go to ride,’ will you throw aside your duty and take pleasure? It’s the fellow who does his duty all the time that wins. Will you be the one? Will you do your job? Will you be a steady fighter?” VARSITY LETTER MEN FORM MONOGRAM CLUB Wednesday, January 21, wearers of the “G” met for the purpose of reorgan izing the monogram club.
