McCULLOCH SWAIN Paramount Printing P. O. Box 1193 Phone 2348-L2 Corner Asheboro and Trinity Irene Clay, a sophomore, just en tered G. H. S. this year from Brazil where her father was a missionary. She tells many interesting facts about the schools and school children in Brazil. “The public schools, which are not very numerous, run only to the fourth grade. The children must be ten years old before they can enter the schools. “The school day is divided into two periods: from seven in the morning until eleven, when the boys study and then go home; then the girls come at twelve and remain until four in the afternoon. They have school six days a w"eek due to the short sessions each day. “The seasons there are opposite from ours, for their winter months are June, July, and August; and the rest is summer. They have two weeks vacation in June and their summer vacation in December and Jauary. There are many holidays for they cele brate all saints days, and also many national holidays. There are any where from twenty-five during the school year besides the regular vaca tion. “The children are compelled to wear shoes to school because of the germs. In poor families they buy one pair of shoes for two children. They each wear one shoe and bandage up the other foot and make believe it is hurt.” NEWS BRIEFS A La Todd Mr. Homer Coletrane, member of the Greensboro Lligh School faculty, was yesterday seen punishing, in a violent manner, one of his pupils. It seems that the poor unfortunate was caught in a red-handed attempt at flirting with the coaches’ favorite observer from N. C. It is thought that the cul prit had been asleep, and, awakening, got his periods mixed, else the event would never have happened. (Moral: Give all masculine teachers first choice of observers, and then, divide the re mainder of them among your class mates.) P. T. A. INSTITUTE MEETS AT COURTHOUSE OCT. 19 Dr. W. H. Livers, Mr. Frederick Archer and Mr. Charles Phillips Are Principal Speakers George B. Wynne was yesterday ar raigned before the School Board on two grave accounts. The first charged the noted criminal with the teaching of eimlution on one of his classes. This charge would have been overlooked by the board had he not taken as an example for his lec ture, Finley Atkisson, specimen at G. H. S. One of A. C. Hattaway’s mon keys heard of the comparision and de manded that the insultor of his kind be brought to justice. For this crime Wynne had fifty cents docked from his pay. He broke down and sobbed when judgment was ruled. The second offense charged the Pro fessor with maliciously falling to sleep in the midst of one of his lectures. The only redeeming feature that he had in this case, was that his slum bers did not effect his lecture. He has all his courses memorized, and so, when he fell asleep most of the pupils did not know the difference, though some objected that he talked too loud while asleep, thus keeping them awake. Wynne smiled widely as the board fined him only a dime on this count. Mr. Archer, Recorder of the Court, ex plained that the wild night-life of Wynne was a big factor in his drowsi ness. An usher from the National The atre corroborated this statement, say ing that he had seen the teacher at the show at least three times in the last month. MUSICIANS COME TO G. H. S. FROM EVERY SCHOOL IN SYSTEM Practices of All School Bands and Orchestras Held Every Saturday Morning VIOLIN PRACTICES HELD Members of Band and Orchestra Led by Mr. Miller and Mr. Slocum. Miss Boyles Teaches Violin A meeting of the leaders of the in stitute of Parent-Teachers Association leaders and members was held in the teachers’ assembly room of the court house beginning Tuesday morning, Oc tober 18, at 10 o’clock and ending at 3 o’clock. A brief history of the Parent- Teacher movement opened the morning session. At 11 o’clock, W. H. Livers, of the faculty of North Carolina Col lege, gave points on the best manner of determining a program of work for the Greensboro chapter of the Parent- Teacher Association. Dr. A. P. Kep- hart, also of the North Carolina Col lege, spoke for a few minutes on how to deA’-elop an interest in Parent-Teach er work, and how to put the idea across to the community through publicity. At the dinner conference Frederick Archer, superintendent of the Greens boro public schools, discussed the edu cational significance of the Parent- Teachers Association movement, and Charles IV. Phillips, principal of Greensboro High School, gave reasons for and advantages of coming in con tact with state and national organiza tions. Mrs. W. W. Martin, one of the organ izers of the Parent-Teachers work, gave an account of its beginning and told something of her early life in school. Mrs. Wiley Swift, state president of the Congress of Parents and Teachers, ^.old of the legislative aims of the or ganization. Friday afternoon, October 8, about thirty-five girls gathered in front of the main building for the first hike of the season. Miss Ruth Reynolds and Miss Emily Wright were the leaders of this group of girls. The girls hiked to Pomona to see the Greensboro reserve and Pomona in ac tion. Six and a quarter miles were covered by the girls on this hike. Plays to Be Given By Dramatics Club (Continued from Page One) “The Trysting Place” by Booth Tarkington, has an unusual plot. It has to do with the difficulties of three couples who planned to meet at the same place. There is excellent char acter development in this play, and clever lines. The cast for it includes Leon Wells as Lancelot Briggs, Page Howard as Mrs. Curtis, Jane Harris as Jessie Briggs, Tullulah Matheny as Mrs. Briggs, Ernest Scarboro as Rupert Smith, J. D. McNairy, Jr., as Mr. Ignolesby, and Henry Weiland as the Mysterious Voice. “A Pan and Two Candle Sticks” by Mary MacMillan has a quaint setting with a modern plot. The lines are attractively written with many touches of humor. It will be played by Elilda Davidson in the role of Nancy, Louis Brooks as Hugh, and Joe Mann as Ralph. “The Florist Shop,” by a member of the famous workshop of Harvard, Winifred Hawkridge, is considered one of the best one act plays written in recent years. It deals with a situa tion which confronts one almost every day yet of which they are not usually aware. The roles will be played by Nell Applewhite as Maude, Edward Stainback as Henry, Macon Crocker as Slovsky, Doris Hogan as Miss Wells, and Joe Mann as Mr. Jackson. The back stage work will be done by the members of the cast with J. D. McNairy, Jr., as stage manager. The business end will be handled by Harry Gump and Mr. Blair. Miss Bliss is coaching the plays. Edmund Turner is making the artistic posters. “After wondering thousands of years how to fix their hair, women finally cut it off.”—Davidsonian, Davidson College. Every Saturday morning the all-city band, the advance High School band, the all-city orchestra, and a violin class meet at G. H. S. for practice. There are about 150 students present at these practices. These are from the different grammar schools of the city as wmll as from the High School. Grady Miller and Earl H.

The High School band has about bO players. Miss Imogene Boyles has 80 pupils in her violin classes.

Miss Imogene Boyles has about 80 pupils in her violin classes. Supreme Court Reverses Decision of Judge Webb (Continued from Page One) the entire issue. The 30-cent tax levy was held to be properly passed and may be collected to defray expenses for the nine months school term and to retire the bonds. In short, the court held fliat everything the city has done to clarify the school situation and to go forward with educational improA’e- ment is legal and that Judge Webb erred in his ruling in upholding the injunction perpetually restraining the county from exercising any control over the new district and from issuing the bonds and collecting the special 30-cent tax. The decision which has been eagerly awaited by sclicol officials means that the school program which has been tied up can now go forward. The building program will be started soon and the committee appointed by the county board of education to operate the schools in the Greater Greensboro dis trict will assume complete jirisdiction and push the work rapidly forward in developing the schools recently added to the city system. The following is an extract from a letter from Lee H. Edwards, former piincipal of the Greensboro High School who is now principal at Ashe ville, to C. W. Phillips: “You should have been at the Ashe ville game. Beyond a doubt, it was the best high school football game I have ever seen. Your boys put up a gallant fight, and we were sorely pressed many times. I think you have every reason to be proud of the boys, even though the score was against them. It was a great personal pleasure to have them here, and I think the children in this school had just as much fun entertain ing them as it was possible for young people to have.” Saturday morning, October 9, the Girl Scouts of the First Baptist church went on a breakfast hike beyond the Masconic Home. They were accom panied by their captain, Miss Inabelle Coleman. RADIO HARDWARE SPORTING GOODS / I WHERE QUAUTY TELLS Greensboro, N. C.
