GIRL SCOUTS MEET
FOR CAMPHRE ON
Meeting is Attended by Four
Original Groups of City—
Troup I in Charge
BANNERS WERE AWARDED
Mrs. Frank Leak Made a Very Inspiring
Talk on Good Sports
On Friday night, November 11, on
the old Lindsay street school lot, about
125 Girl Scouts gathered for an inter
troop campfire. Troop No. 1 of the
First Presbyterian church had charge
of the meeting, attended by four origi
nal troops of the city.
During the past month the troops
have been working on the three con
tests—attendance, competing for 100
per cent subscription to the American
Girl, and a contest for the best demon
stration of three songs: the troop song,
the national flag, and one other chosen
by the troop.
The results of the contests were; for
attendance, troop 2 first place, troop 5
second place, and troop 4 third place.
Both troops No. 1 and 2 are 100 per
cent subscribers to the American Girl,
but troop 1 reached its goal first, so,
therefore, they get first place; a third
place has not been taken yet. For the
song contest, troop 1 won first place,
troop 4 second place, and troop 2 and 5
third place. The judges were, for the
song contest, Mrs. Percy Kerner and
Mrs. Wilbur Carter.
The baners awarded were blue for
first place, red for second, and white
for the third place. In closing Mrs.
Frank Leak made an inspiring talk on

Clark Speaks of Community Chest
Work—Represemtatives From Post

Mr. Henry Clark, speaking for the
community chest of Greensboro, spoke
to the students of main building on
Monday, November 7. The pledge of
allegiance was given to the fiag and
then the assembly sang “The Star-
“Patriotism is the expression of what
we are willing to do for our com
munity, state, and nation,” began Mr.
Clark. The chest is one of the best
agencies through which we can express
our gratitude; so let’s each of us do our
part, said the speaker.
The commander of the Greensboro
American Legion post, Mr. Fred Myrick,
spoke in general terms of observance
of Armistice Day.
Mr. R. L. Stanley, a representive
from the American Legion, spoke to the
students on Tuesday, November 8, and
Mr. Ben Ward addressed the students
New Pay Telephone Installed in Main
Building of Greensboro
OBJECT TO LIMIT STUDENT CALLS
Deposit five cents, please.
Such are the formalities one must go
through now when making a phone
call not pertaining to school business.
A new pay telephone has been in
stalled on the wall just outside of the
door leading into the main building.
Students wishing to call up their moth
ers and tell them that they are going
to the show or to get a hair-cut or to
speak about anything else not con
cerned with official school business will
have to use the pay telephone.
Mr. Archer, superintendent of pub
lic schools, had the telephone installed
so that the phone in the office could
be used for school business. Several
people had complained of not being able
to get the office because of the pupils
continually calling. With over a hun
dred calls coming into Miss Mitchell’s
office daily, the confusian can plainly
Miss Jane Summerell, former dean
and Latin teacher of Greensboro High
School and at present an English teach
er at N. C. C., spoke to Miss Evelyn
Martin’s Cicero classes on Tuesday,
November 8, in the music room. Miss
Summerell told about her trip to Rome
during the past summer.
Pictures of the forum, statues and
Pompeii added to the vividness of the
talk. “Rome is as modern as any of
our own cities,” declared Miss Sum
merell. She expected to see the former
glory of Rome still in sway.
“At the train we were met by an
old guide, who welcomed us to the
city and then hurried us to the Forum.
The Forum of Cicero’s time is now in
the heart of modern Rome. The guide
seemed much more interested in Lord
Byron’s Child Harold’s Pilgrimage
than in showing us the Forum.
The biggest thrill of my trip was
when I climbed up the wall of the ros
tra. My guide informed me that this
was not done, but I would not be con
tent until I stood where Cicero and
other Roman notables stood and deliv
ered their orations.”
The national museum at Pompeii af
forded much interest. Pictures of re
cent excavations of Pompeii were
shown the students.
Miss Summerell will talk to the stu
dents in main building about her trip
in general on Monday, November 28.
Details concerning a subscription
campaign were the objects for discus
sion of a semester YI meeting held
Wednesday, November 1. Mr. G. P.
Hubble, representative of the Curtis
Publishing Company, explained the
merits of good salesmanship.
The purpose of his talk was to arouse
the interest of the juniors in a sub
scription campaign, by which money
can be made for junior expenses. The
magazines which he offered for sale
are The Ladies' Home Journal, The
Saturday Evening Post, and The Coun
“Persuasian,” said he, “is a necessary
element for a good salesman. Learn to
present your wares in such a manner
that you will attract the listener, and
introduce him to buy what you have to
sell. Also, a salesman must cultivate
a magnetic personality.”
Mr. Hubble divided the semester into
two groups of thirty-five each; the red
side, “Wildcats,” headed by Doris Ho
gan, and the green side, “Bear Cats,”
headed by John Foster.
The contest lasted from Thursday,
November 2, until Thursday, November
11. Much advertising on the part of
the two captains kept the interest of
the juniors in obtaining subscriptions.
The goal for the semester was to have
90 per cent of the class secure at least
one subscription. The project was suc
cessful, the students obtaining 99 sub
Semester YI made ,$59.40 from this
project. This money will be added to
the general class fund.
