with all the hockey girls? They must
have hockey mixed up with football
and are trying to learn signals or
something, for all during classes one
of them may be seen whispering
something to Miss Causey. tVe can’t
figure out what they are doing unless
they are learning signals. MTien is
the big secret coming out? Is it to

“tVade tViley Phillips proclaimed
world champion featherweight,’’ reads
a headline. W. lY. is the young son
of Mr. Cholly Phillips of Greensboro
High School, Sunset Hills, and points
■ Mr. ITiillips wishes, through these
columns to mis-verify the above state
ment. Here is his version of the affair.
“lYell, lYade, that’s my kid, is nigh
on to a year old, and a star letter man
on the kindergarten wrestling team.
He learnt all his tricks while I strug
gled at 4 a. 111. each morning to put
him and Morpheus on friendly terms,
so’s I could snatch a coupla night
mares myself. So when tYade got
funny the other night I says to my
self ; ‘Now, I’m going to show this
guy who’s boss in this house, once and
“He bellered something in baby-lingo,
and I says, ‘Do you know it’s 4 o’clock
and I ain’t had a wink of sleep yet?’
“ ‘I’ll smack your sassy face,’ he
pipes, and bit a hunk out er my ear.
“IMildly angry, I threw the brat
against the wall, caught him on the
rebound, and spanked him generously
on the extreme end.
“ ‘There,’ I says.
“ ‘tYliere’?’ says Made, as if only a
steam roller had rolled over liini.
“And then he gave me a right to
the jaw and a bite to the ear. Two
fast feet to the ribs convinced me that
I was up against a coming champion,
so I bifted him one in the nose to give
him a hard look. (No one could say
that a Phillips had a wax nose in the
ring). Not appreciating this in the
spirit it was rendered the little scandal
gave me a punch to the basket.
“ ‘Oh, Cholly,’ sobbed my wife; ‘and
to think our “\Yade Miley” would come
“ ‘Yes, my—oop,’ I says as another
left left me without wind.
“And then when I had a half-nelson
on him, he worked loose and flipped
me backward by the toe and pounded
me to sleep with a bedpost. He fouled
me, or I’d be champ to-day.
‘’Oh, well, it runs in the family, and
you’ll admit that’s pretty good for a
kid less than a year old.
“And after all, he ain’t such a
featherweight, by the way, after you’ve
toted him six hours in a radius of four

INSTRUCTOR OF MATH
TRAVELS IN EUROPE
ABOUT EIGHT WEEKS
Miss Lily Walker Tours in
Places of Interest with
Group of 150.
ENJOYS FOOD IN HOLLAND
Enjoyed Scenery and People in Switzer
land but Didn’t Like Italy
Because of the Fleas.
Yli.ss Lily lYalker, instructor in math
ematics in G. H. S., sailed from Que
bec, Ciinada, for Europe on the ship,
“Most Roy:U,” on the eighth of June.
There were about 150 in the group
when they started, but some dropped
out as they went on. Miss Walker
was gone about eight weeks.
She says that the thing that im
pressed her most in England was that
the pee])le never hurry and yet they
get as much done as we do. She spent
all one morning talking to a Bobbie
(policeman). She said he was an
old man and very interesting.
In Holland she enjoyed the food and
ate until it was impossible to eat more.
They experienced bad service in France.
She declared that when they reijuested
water for breakfast they called in all
the waiters and held a consulation.
She enjoyed the scenery very much
in Switzerland, as well as the folks,
and the army officers. IMost of these
could speak only three English words,
“thank you,” “good-night” and “sorry.”
She said that she didn’t like Italy
because there were too many fieas
there. One of the men in the party
was fined ten lira or thirty cents for
putting his feet on the seat in the
She also went to Belgium. Among
the points of interest to her were the
“Cathedral of Milan” and the National
Art Gallery in Holland.
Miss Walker was so homesick that
she caught a train home as soon as
possible. She went for a rest and a
good time, and she declares she suc
ceeded in both aims.
