the STUDENT COUNCIL
The G. H. S. Student Council during
the past year has done all in its power
to help direct student activities, and to
ttiaintain honor in school by fostering
civic virtues of self-control, courtesy,
co-operation, and obedience to lawful
Through this council, as much as
through any other organization, has the

The year, speaking from an athletic
standpoint, has been a success. In foot
ball, basketball, baseball and track,
although no championships have been
won, a high standard of sportsmanship
has been maintained. Often all, that is
what really matters, and G. H. S. is
proud of it.
During football season about forty
boys come out regularly. Under the di
rection of Coach Johnson and Captain
Burroughs, a strong, sportsmanlike team
was developed. Dearer to the hearts of
G. H. S. students than winning a cup,
was the defeat of Winston. Not once,
but twice did our warriors conquer their
ancient enemies. The services of Man
ager Norman Stone and his assistants
should not be forgotten. They con
tributed much to the success of the
Willard Watson was chosen to carry
on the ideals for the coming year.
The basketball season is not yet far
enough away to mention without tears.
Although “the” game was lost by one
point, the season was far from a failure.
Captain Stone was out on account of
injury from the beginning of the sea
son. Coach Park, building around Scott
and Goodwin, developed a splendid fight
ing combination. One little point, which
went to Leaksville, ended the hopes of
With Johnson as coach and Wyrick
as captain, the baseball team experienced
a comparatively successful season. The
breaks were about even, and the games
were about fifty-fifty. High Point put
G. H. S. out of the running for state
Possibly the most profitable of all was
track, in that it showed such an improve
ment over the past. Greensboro won first
place in the Triangular meet, and places
in the other meets.
Bill Homey broke the state record for
the half mile at Chapel Hill. His time
was 2.6 4-5. The old record was 2.13 3-5.
Track is one of the newer sports, and
it has only recently received much at
tention at G. H. S. Many new athletes
have been developed through this sport.
Another activity which has seen favor
is tennis. Both boys and girls have en
gaged in this. Bill Scott won the state
championship and Virginia Jackson won
the singles district championship for
girls. Tennis is another sport which has
come into favor only recently.
Taking it all in all, G. H. S. has had,
from an athletic standpoint, a pleasant
and profitable year.
General Athletic Council
The work of this council is practically
the same each year. The awarding of
the letters and all money matters fall
on the shoulders of this capable council.

ner in tennis. “Bud” Gonnelly is presi
dent of the club, William Scott, vice-
president, and Vernell Hackney is sec
retary and treasurer.
The members of the club are Fred
Burroughs, Mead Connelly, Arthur De-

leadership of Mead Connelly it has been
a great success.

PHYSICS CLASS “SIGHT-SEES”
Shades of purple apes and pink ele
phants 1 How’s this for a hopeater’s
Last Wednesday, May 6, when the
track squad was going through its daily
dozen at the Fair Grounds, a jack rab
bit was espied loping down the track.
Immediately the whole team was in hot
pursuit, but their sagacious and tender
hearted coach, Mr. Aycock, called them
back, not wishing to see the poor rabbit
run to death.
A good sized poodle was an interested
observer of the stately progress of the
jack, and the gaze of one of the embryo
Nurmis fell u]3on him. He was im
pressed into service as a beast of the
chase, and was sent bounding ofP on the
trail of the dignified rabbit. The dog
was on the heels of the unperturbed
bunny when he received the surprise of
his life. The jack turned and steadily
regarded the canine with an expression
which plainly said, “If you want to go
away from here all in one chunk, old
lop ears, I wouldn’t advise you to start
anything with me.”
The poodle couldn’t stand that me
nacing gaze, and he turned tail and
made hasty tracks in the other direction,
with the rabbit in hot pursuit. Around
and around they went in an ever-nar
rowing circle, the jack gaining at every
bound. At last the dog saw a chance
of escape and headed for the grand
stand, leaping to safety just as the

Mr. W. E. Comer’s physics class spent
a very profitable hour when they visited
Dr. Credeman, who demonstrated the
X-Ray to them. Dr. Credeman showed
the class how it was possible to see the
bones in the body, and how the X-Ray
worked. The class felt that they were
greatly benefitted by it.
COMMERCIAL CLUB A BIG HELP
The purpose of the commercial club
is to bring the commercial student of the
High School into closer touch with the
business world which he is soon to en
ter. Mr. C. H. Ireland, Mr. J. N. Wills,
Mr. H. R. Bush and other capable busi
ness men have given the club helpful
talks on the pleasures and problems of
I.ast year’s swimming team was the
first swimming organized in G. H. S.
It was organized under Coach McKay
in early March of last spring.
About fifteen boys turned out for the
first practice, but at the end of two
weeks there were only about ten boys
holding out for regular practice.
“Coach started us on our strokes,
teaching us first the crawl stroke for
speed. Each after learning the crawl
stroke chose a respective stroke or swim
to follow up for the rest of the season.
After two weeks of stiff practice. Coach
passed on our respective strokes and
swims so we thought we were ready for
a rneet,” declared a swimmer today.
“Our first meet was held in Winston
Y. M. C. A. vs. W. H. S.
“G. H. S. showed up well considering
the drawbacks of the pool, ‘tho Wins
ton took the meet by one point, that
point being disputed for at least thirty
“The pool looked like an overgrown
finger-bowl with five feet of water at
the most. The bottom was dark rough
cement. It was useless to look for the
bottom anywhere in the pool even in the
shallowest place, for the pool appeared
as a dark brown blotch. The ceiling was
about eight feet high and every time a
boy went to dive he would kick the
“The next meet was held in the
Greensboro Y. M. C. A. vs. Winston,
and here we won our first meet. The
score was something like Greensboro 56
and Winston 34.
We tried to arrange meets with other
schools in the state but were unable to
do so. It was also drawing near the
final examinations so the coach called
the end of the season.”
CIVITAN CLUB ENTERTAINS
TRACK TEAMS AT BANQUET
Mr. Fred Odell, President of the Club,
Presents Prizes and Cups to
On your mark, get ready, go! These
were the words that sent the runners
on their way to success Saturday after
noon, but they had a different meaning
at the banquet that night. Rev. Hughes
started the athletes on the road to sat
isfy their appetite by these same words.
During the course of dinner several
coaches of the visiting teams made short
talks. The High Point coach made a
very interesting talk. He handed him
self a great complement by saying that
one time a toast-master introduced him
and said that although he had heard
President Coolidge and several other
great statesman speak that he liked him
The prizes and cups were presented to^
the winners of the track meet by Mr,
Fred Odell, president of the Civitan
The banquet seemed complete except
that the two distinguished guests, Wil
lie Goodwin and Jackson Scholtz, of the
New York Athletic Association had not
arrived. But the best had been saved
for last and when they arrived Mr.
Scholts, gave a very interesting talk on
his trip to Europe with the Olympic
team of U. S. A.
The banquet was brought to an end by
singing “America, The Beautiful.”
OLYMPIC STARS PERFORM
AT ANNUAL TRACK MEET
Jackson Scholtz Breaks World’s Rec
ord for Hundred-Yard Dash.
Of great interest to G. H. S. students
was the appearance of the Olympic
Stars at the track meet. Jackson Scholtz
and Willie Goodwin, both of the New
York Athletic Club, delighted the gal
lery with their perfect form. Scholtz
broke the world’s record in the 100-
yard dash by a fifth of a second. Mr.
Park is trying to have this established
as an official record.
Willie Goodwin ran the two miles with
a relay of three men from Carolina. He
came out a couple of hundred yards be
hind. The steady gait he kept up all
the way around seemed a marvel to the
