.’•tr- >■*? ill i 'W Is a HIGH LIFE GRADUATING CLASS HOLDS EXERCISES IN ODELL MEMORIAL Small Class Presents Unique Program of Life at Greens boro High School HAVE IMAGINARY PICNIC Willis Hargrove Writes “Last Will and Testament”—Annie Hogan Reads Letter Telling Class History The class day exercises of the mid year graduates of Greensboro High School were held in the Odell Memorial building Thursday, January 27. The exercises took the form of a play di vided into two scenes. The first scene took place in the hall of Greensboro High School. The class met for their final get-together, a pic nic. Before going on such a danger ous adventure James West took inven tory of the things the class had to leave their school and friends, while Willis Hargrove wrote “The Last Will and Testament.” They willed Miss Mitchell a schedule which would satisfy all. To the pupils of G. H. S. this class left a tVestern Union clock, guaranteed to keep the right time and not to ring until every scholar is in his desk and ready for class. George Donavant’s “Baby Face” was bequeathed to “Pete” tVyrick and “Chuck” Burgess. A let ter, which Annie Hogan had written to Elsie Palmer revealing their history, was read by Annie. The lunch was col lected, and they started for a picnic place with Banks Simpson and Elsie Palmer leading the way. In the second scene they arrived at the unknown spot. In looking over this place George Dohavant found a mys terious paper which disclosed the fu ture of the class of ’27. Mildred Nash, the class artist, drew a word picture of each graduate. tVhen “all the good things had been eaten” they sang their school, class, and farewell songs before returning home.

About forty students from the Debating Club, Public Speaking and Dramatics classes participated. This number was divided into two groups, one speaking in the afternoon, the other in the auditorium Friday night.

STUDENT COUNCIL GIVES PROGRAM OF WELCOME Visit Eighth Grades of Mclver and Cald well Schools, January 26 and 27 PROGRAM VERY MUCH ENJOYED In order to avoid confusion when the students entering high school for the first time came over, the Student Coun cil of G. H. S. visited the eighth grades of Mclver and Caldwell schools, and gave a program both of welcome and instructions, 'Wednesday and Thursday, January 26 and 27. Willard Watson, president of the stu dent body, was in charge of the pro gram, and after he gave a few words of welcome and advice, Betty Brown talked on “What You Can Mean to the High School.” “What the High School Can Mean to You” was the subject of a talk by Henry Biggs, in which he declared “The high school will mean to you just what you mean to the high school, plus just twice as much more.” Zaidee Smith told the students about the elective courses, and Walter Peter son and Earl Harlee discussed the music offered at G. H. S. Charles Rives and Bill Petree told of the sports of Greensboro High and the benefits derived from them, and Mary Lynn Carlson concluded the program by tell ing the freshmen about the publications. High Life and Homespun. THE GROWTH OF MISSIONS TOPIC OF KILTIE CLUB History of Missionary Work is Dis cussed By Entire Group—C. T. Boyd Speaks MARY ELIZABETH KING PLAYS “The Growth of Missions” was the chief topic at a meeting of the Kiltie Klub January 26. Everyone joined in this discussion. These were some of the ideas brought out: The first great movement of missionary work in mod ern times was the colonization of the new world ; the second was when the individual began to declare himself, as in the French Revolution; the third was the industrial revolution. The men who did the most for the development of the cause were also discussed. The meeting of the following week, January 2, was a continuance of the discussion on “The Growth of Mis sions.” A talk was made by C. T. Boyd on this subject, and Mary Elizabeth King played several piano selections. (I) How to Live Without Working. This may be done in any one of many ways. You might marry a rich “old maid.” Be sure she is ninety-three years old, or older, that she has no distant relatives to whom she may will her fortune, and that a conservative estimate of her es tate’s value after her death will be $137,376.97. At her death you should mourn very loudly, tear your hair, and say that you cannot live without your little rose. Place an inscription on her tombstone which reads, “Here lies my little tootsie- wootsie, whom hath been taken from me so soon.” If, however, she lives six months after her ninety-fourth birthday, the rules say that she may be poisoned, specifying that wood alcohol should be used. Any policeman will direct you to a wood alcohol station. II Another method, quite effective but not quite so satisfying, is to stop work altogether, and to cease taking any pains to gain a living. Depend entirely on charity. The one drawback in this method is the fact that its executors cannot eat. III Probably the easiest way to gain a luxurious living without work is to teach school in Greensboro High School. There is no work to the job, pay is extremely high, and a “dizzy” social set of teachers set a pace which makes a tutor’s life one gay round of good times after another. Since this subject is so very close to all our homes, let me expound through some hard and fast examples. Mr. George Baker Wynne, (some mis understanding pupil thought that the “B” was “Bagga” ’Wind) on arriving in our fair city, Avas nothing but a bunch of skin and bone from the tide water section of North Carolina. He had been a member of the old southern aristocracy who “tea-ed” in the after noon and lived on crackers and water. At present and ever since his school teaching occupation was begun, he is, and has been a natural jolly old rascal of round proportions. His is a work less exis'tence. He is envied from one end of “campus” to the other. ■When Miss Mary Wheeler first came to G. H. S., we even feared for her life. Now her width exceeds even her pulchritude. Look around you—^there are other illustrations of this astounding ease of a school teacher’s life. Minutes are to hours what pennies are to dollars—and he who saves both wins.—World Heirs.
