Kid Day. Children of all descriptions
trudged to class, licking their lolly-pops
and chewing their gum. The dolls and
teddy-bears hung over their arms and
frequent shrieks of “Gimme back my
baby doll!’’ rang through the rooms.
Ernest Scarboro was adorned in a
huge red tie and a little white sailor
cap. Ned IJpscomb had on knee breeches
and a very small head gear; however,
he soon decided that he wasn’t as hand
some as usual, so home he went and
changed his outfit. Several other boys
had short pants and blouses on, and
they behaved as becomes a ten-year-old.
Cynthia Vaughn, Emma Barton and
Lura Abercrombie, along with Melene
Burroughs and Ruth Simpson, were at
tired in very brief dresses with bloom
ers to match, while Mary Elizabeth
King, Pat Miller, and Hilda Davidson
wore rompers. Of course socks were
used for hosiery, and sun bonnets hung
around the necks.
At intervals during the class periods
frequent cries were heard from the
mama dolls. However, the teachers
were very considerate when it came to
tolerating the pranks and behavior of

COLLEGE PAPERS CHOOSE
NEW PRESIDENT MAY 7
Wednesday, May 18, the Greensboro
High School Debating Club held its
annual initiation ceremony. This year
the affair, which has heretofore taken
the form of a banquet, was changed
to a picnic. Probably some three dozen
persons, including members of the club,
their guests, and the faculty advisers,
attended. The picnic, held at the Doug
las cabin on the Battleground road, be
gan about five in the afternoon and
broke up near ten.
At this time, all members who have
been taken into the club since the ini
tiation banquet last spring were duly
introduced to the secret solemnities of
the organization, wTiich is, nevertheless,
not of a fraternal nature.
The substitution of a picnic for a
banquet does not signify that such wfill
always be the case, this being optional
with the members. This is the last of
the three entertainments held annually
by the Debating Club, and among De
bating Club functions ranks second in
importance to the Triangular Debate
