PLAN HIGH SCHOOL
Duke University is completing plans
for a Southern High School basketball
tournament some time in the near fu
ture. Invitations will be issued to all
state champions in the southern states.
The teams will be kept at Duke Uni
versity while they attend the tourna
ment, and the only cost will be the
railroad fare. The games will be
played at the Durham High School
and at the gymnasium at Duke.
This is something new in the South,
and officials at Duke say that if it is
a success, they will try to make it an
annual affair. The southern colleges
hold a tournament each year in At
Spring football has been progressing
rapidly and with the summer weather
which was enjoyed during the past two
weeks as an aid. Coach Coletrane has
had 'a group of hoys for a workout
every afternoon. The new' material
has been initiated into the game and
are brushing up on the fundamentals
so that they will be able to fall right
in line wdth the old members of the
squad at the first call next season.
In a recent copy of Pine Whispers,
the Winston High publication, w'e find
that Winston now boasts a w’-restling
team w’hich is dated for a meet with
the Carolina freshmen. It is a great
step in high school w'ork w'hen the
indoor sports are developed along with
the outdoor major sports. We wdsh
Winston a great deal of success in this
new' venture and maybe, someday, wdth
a new' high school and a gym, Greens
boro may also have a try at this sport.
A new' high school reminds us that
the good new's has come that High
Point is scheduled for a new home in
the near future and that the plans are
now' w'ell on the w'ay.

Another radical change has taken
place along this line in the last year.
In February of last year, barn-yard
golf w'as starting into public favor and
to w'alk across the campus meant dodg

Now' you try to dodge the crow'd and
