school site, Tuesday night, May 17, in
the county courthouse.
E. D. Broadhurst, chairman of the
board, presided and said that he held
no preference as to the location of the
new high school. John S. Michaux stat
ed his objection to a site three miles
from the city, and suggested that the
TTite property on Belelmeade street he
Sidney Stern favored the Cone site
adjoining the Stadium, and asked the
board to think seriously of accepting
Hie 40-acre gift. The Latham site was
again discussed, but this site has been
withdrawn. C. G. Wright and T. J.
Murphj^, prominent citizens of Greens
boro, spoke against the Scales site.
A poll was taken as to how the audi
ence stood on the location of school
sites. Ninety-four of those present op
posed the Scales site while only eighteen
favored it. Frank Blackwood made the
last talk. lie urged the board to con

Mr. Broadhurst thanked the audience

LOVE AS ’TIS IN G. H. S.
O’ course, I can’t lay no claims to
bein’ no expert about this deliket sub
ject, like Finley Atkisson, Bill Fife,
Elinor Glyn, AA^ill Rogers, Nina AYilcox
Putnam and Ralph Cook, but just like
Heebe and that Indian boy, I have saw
right much in my tender years of ob
servation. The reason I am not so up
to date is because, just like Charlie
Rives, I ain’t never went out much.
But since it is my dooty to get some
thin’ or other in this colyum every other
week, on general principles, I find it
necessary to take up this vital (luestion
and give it a airing.
I^ove is a wonderLil thing. I have
known fellers which was in love, but I
don’t get the above statement from
them. I get it from the magazines,
books, and funny papers. If I was to
t;die the felers of whom I speak an’ put
down their ideas above love, Airs. Ash
ford would kill this copy and half kill
me. It just ain’t fit for publication.
Love, in their nunds, rates as an in
stitution along with Sing-Sing, Greens-
boor High School, and work.
J’he way it all starts, some boy which
wears his wide pants to school,
t)unches another one an’ says, “AA"ho is
that black-headed girl with blue eyes
an’ a mole on her left-hand ear?”
‘’Oh! Her? That is Alolly Cucumber
—‘her old man runs a bakery.”
The boy approaches and, assuming a
silly aspect, says, “Goo-hoo, Coo-coo.”
The girl happens not to be poetic, but
she finishes out the rime with eyes
which says, “Goo-goo.”
And so, it starts—love for the first
five minutes and seventeen seconds is
grand. After that, doubt enters the
mind of each party concerned, and the
thing nearly gets on the rocks, but
everything is made hotsy-totsy again
through a fuss over which is most to
blame, both of them wanting to take it
all. And yet they say love is unselfish.
iTien the inevitable third party, en
ters. The boj' catches the girl makin’
“goo-goo” eyes at another, and after a
gnashin’ of teeth and threats at bloody
murder, libel, larcenj’, double-parking,
and speeding, things turn out right
again when he finds it was only her
brother an’ she was makin’ signs for
him not to tell her mama that she was
An’ so it goes; there ain’t no happi
ness in love exceptin’ in books, maga
zines and College Humors. I pity all
the boj’s in love—Nina AVilcox Butnam
pities the girls—and I pity myself, be
cause I’m right in the thick of the
Let me tell you somethin’ I have seen
somewhere about love. It fits in with
(1) Love is blind; (2) Love is an
institution, and (3) Therefore, Love is
an institution for the blind.
