Locals Take Early Lead GIBSONVILLE GIRLS DOWN LOCAL TEAM No-Star Game Ends With Score of 20-10 For Gibson- ville Six MANY FOULS ARE MADE Friday night, February 18th, a scout rally was held at Mclver School. Many parents were entertained at this an nual meeting. Stunts were given by each troop in the city. This was the largest rally ever held in Greensboro. Six troops were there one hundred per cent strong.

Each stunt was followed by the troot) yell. The audience showed its appreciation by loud applause. MEETING OF TRACK MEN HELD TO PLAN SCHEDULES Coach Urges Boys to Run a Little Every Day and Keep Strict Training ARE PRACTICING AT FAIR GROUND On Monday, February 14, a meeting of all boys interested in track was held in room 106 at 3 :45. Coach Lam bert urged all the boys to start train ing and to run around a little every day. He asked every boy to try to get another boy out for track. He out lined the schedule for the spring meets. The first meet is to be held on March 19th at Davidson. As the boys are unable to get the stadium to practice in until March 1, they are at present training at the Central Carolina Fair Grounds. Prospects for the year seem to be very good. There will be more candi dates out when the basketball season closes. PLAN HIGH SCHOOL CAGE TOURNAMENT 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 lanta. 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. With all the celebration of King Cot ton, we w'onder if someone couldn’t start a cotton game so w'e could be pa triotic to the old south in our sports as W'ell as the social w'hirl. Strange how' styles w'ill change; have you noticed the decrease in the num ber of knickers around the academy? The school changes along w’ith the rest of the w'orld; this is sho'wn in the absence of sports at the lunch periods. Any of you old-timer students remem ber the thrilling volley-ball games un der the direction of Ponzi Dorsett and Mr. G. B.? 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 ing a horseshoe. Times have changed. Now' you try to dodge the crow'd and wonder how' far it is to the street so you can get out of the mob. This problem of traffic is getting se rious and the one solution that w'e see is to install a subway and elevted sys tem. Each student w'ould be provided with tickets at the opening of the day and for a small price get a guarantee for a safe and prompt delivery to his class. The basketball season is fast draw'- ing to a close and all of the high schools in the state are preparing to turn to the great American game of baseball. Greensboro as yet has not seen any signs of baseball, but on a lit tle investigation it is seen that the prospects for this year are much bright er than they have been in recent years.
