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 considered. 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 The Latham site was again discussed, but this site has been withdrawn.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 sider the future and buy enough land.

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 chewin' gum. 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 fight. Let me tell you somethin’ I have seen somewhere about love. It fits in with my topic. (1) Love is blind; (2) Love is an institution, and (3) Therefore, Love is an institution for the blind. CHOOSES LOCATION OF GRADED SCHOOL Board Authorizes Purchase of 25 Acres on West Mar ket Street OPEN MEETING PLANNED Collins Land to Be Used for New Gram mar School—Just off Elam Avenue WINSTON-SALEM HI TAKES FIRST PLACE Typist Contest at Memorial Hall, University of N.
