C. Roger Forbes, a big financier, with
whom Gordon Smith was desirous of en
tering into a business deal, and Mrs.
Forbes, his second wife, were well played
by Arthur Pearce and Frances Elder.
Angela Forbes, Schuyler Van Dyck,
and Vincent Leach, who had been invit
ed by Dulcy without the knowledge of
her husband, afforded in the persons of
Lois Schoonover, Bernard Shaw and Jul
ius Witten much amusement and laughter
for the audience.
Guy Hill, as Tom Sterret, advertising
engineer for Mr. Forbes, did a good
piece of acting. Clarence Stone, as Blair
Patterson, and Michaux Crocker, as Hen
ry, the ex-convict and butler, helped to
make up the good team.
After the audience had followed Dulcy
through her many acts of what she con
sidered kindness and had seen every
thing turn out well, it decided that it
had watched one of the best amateur per
formances ever staged at the North Car
olina College auditorium.
Stage managers were Bill Roach and
Lanier Griffin. Phil Shelton, Charlotte
Van Noppen, and Margaret Irvin were
in charge of the properties. The settings
and lighting deserve especial praise.

STAR PUPILS OF GREENSBORO
SCHOOLS VISIT CAPITAL CITY
(Continued from page one)
ture of the program—a visit to the State
Blind School. The boys and girls vis
ited several classes there and heard a
highly entertaining program which the
pupils had prepared for their benefit.
All were amazed at the proficiency shown
in school work by these blind students
and by the exceptional musical talent
displayed in their program.
Although it was not a regular visiting
day at the penitentiary, Mr. Hughes had
arranged with the warden that as a spe
cial favor the Greensboro party be al
lowed to go through this important in
stitution of the state. This visit proved
very interesting, though it is rumored
that a few of the visitors were disap
pointed since they failed to see their
friend, Otto Wood.
As it was now getting late, all left
for Greensboro. The whole trip had been
an overwhelming success through the
kindness of the Civitans, coupled with
the earnest efforts of Colonel Fred Olds,
who had guided the party throughout the
day and helped greatly to make the trip
To pass, or not to pass—that is the
question. Whether tis nobler in the
brain to suffer the C’s and D’s of out
rageous failure, or to take efforts against
a sea of lessons and by studying end
them. To pass—to fail no more, and by
a toil to say we end the voice and the
thousand daily lectures that teachers are
heir too—tis’ a preaching devoutly to be
avoided. To pass—to fail—to fail! Per
chance to cheat! Ay, there’s the down
fall, for in that failure of lessons what
debts may come when we have shuffled
off this school duty must make us think:
there’s the respect that makes calamity
of business life; for who would bear the
failures and cheaters of time?
The emjfioyee’s wrong, the employer’s
scornful, the agony of unvalued labor,
the disobeyed law, the insulting manner
of employment that the ready unedu
cated man gives when the student might
his life make without sweat? Who would
these hardships suffer?
To grunt and labor under a heavy
pick, but that the want of higher wages,
undiscovered talent to which no thought
is given, bothers not the mind and makes
some people do those tasks rather than
to race to others not heard nor seen.
Thus doth failure make toilers of us all,
and the brow of fixed determination is
moist over with a sufficient den, and man
of great force and leadership His head
bows downward and loses the name of
A DISCOURSE ON DOGS
“Dog gone,” said the baby as the dog-
trotted swiftly out of sight. As he grew
up the baby became more human and
put more expression into his “doggone”.
And so, on they go, forever using the
name of the canine quadruped in vain.
They even go so far as to call each other
dogs as a sign of contempt.
How do you think a dog feels when
he sees one human being call another a
dog? And to bring in the Darwin the
ory—no wonder he barks at monkeys
when he sees them.
Now of course, it takes vain words
for one of these vicious dogs—not a
barker, but one that really bites. I
used to know a dog of this kind—a ter
rible old bull dog. Charlie Paddock and
Nurmi v-ere outclassed several times a
day on account of that dog. And if
Shylock had had that dog he might have
gotten his pound of flesh.
Now there are always two sides to a
question. So we might summon the dog
up as a pretty good thing, to have
around—especially one that can talk to
book agents and bill collectors.

SEASON’S REVIEW SHOWS
SUCCESS IN ALL SPORTS
(Continued from page three)
The class tournament in girls basket
ball was won this year by the seniors.
The varsity squad composed of eighteen
members, played twelve games; Greens
boro’s total was 275 against opponents’
355. In the semi-finals the G. H. S.
team was eliminated by Leaksville for
the district championship.
Both the boys’ and girls’ Monogram
Clubs are the products of other activi
ties, and for this reason inferences may
be drawn from other sources.
The Hockey Club is only a year old
but has accomplished wonders. The
breaks have been about even between
Greensboro’s team and Winston’s squad.
Since there are but few teams in N. C.
there have been but few matches in
which to show off the merits of the team
from G. H. S. However, there has been
quite a little inter-class competition.
The girls turned out in full force this
year for track events, the total at prac
tice being sixty. The twenty-five girls
who made the squad took a trip to Win
ston to compete in a district track meet,
and they captured the cup from High
Point, Winston, Burlington, and Went

A MARVELOUS YARN

teeth of the dog-eating rabbit closed
over the space which his hind quarters
had occupied a brief instant before.
The pooch remained in his safe retreat
until the rabbit despaired of securing
his intended victim and hopped away
with the swagger of the conqueror. At
last the dog descended from his retreat,
feeling that the danger was past, and
trotted out onto the track. Just then
the rabbit looked back and saw his cow
ardly antagonist faring forth again.
Immediaely he came back at a fast
The pooch didn’t see him until he was
within a few feet, but when he did he
gave one frightened yap, tucked his tail
between his legs, and set sail for dis
tant parts, with the jack rabbit hot on
his trail. And so pursuer and pursued
made their exit from the scene. They
are probably running yet, unless the
poodle is now rabbit meat.
Coach Aycock and the whole track
team swear to the truth of this story,
yet you’ll admit that it sounds impossi
ble. What’s the answer? There can be
but one. The track team and their au
gust leader or the rabbit had discovered
a moonshine whiskey still and partaken
of its stock in trade.
