RIGHT CHURCH BUT THE WRONG PEW A crowd of girls started to Reidsville the other night to support their fond team at a basketball game. In spite of the rain and snow, they continued on their way. Arriving in the fair city, they inquired the way to the said game. “Two blocks to the right, one to the left ,and then to Clark’s Ware house,” were the directions. These members of the fairer sex did as they were told—for once—and left the car in which they were riding. They boldly walked in the warehouse to give their lungs a treat. To their surprise, there was not a single person there they knew. One of the members of the party asked who was playing. Well here they had gone to a game of two factory teams. Stranded in a strange city alone and darkness everywhere the poor dears were frightened greatly Well, at any rate, they got to the game they wanted to see, even if they were terribly late. REDWAY AND COLTRANE COACH G. H. S. WRESTLER Greensboro High mat men have again taken up work after “laying off” for a couple of months due to a lack of candidates. The grapplers work out every aftemoon at the “Y” under the coaching of Redway and Coltrane. The G. H. S. lads are not as yet well organized, and it is not known whether any meets will be secured this season. However, the boys have given some exhibitions and will give more in the future. .Las.i.-. siter and £Il,eg:g.gave an exhibition bout recently at a meeting of the local American Legion.

S. have been faring better than the first string for the past few days. They have met al the teams of the grammar schools and defeated them. They have given a good account of themselves against severa of the smaller high schools in their section.

Track prospects seem very bright for this year, in fact the best in severa years. Many boys are taking advan tage of the good weather and are work ing out in the stadium daily. Capt. Clarence Phoenix had his pic ture in The Daily Record the other day His handsome mug was almost inspir ing to the sport editor. Mr. Coletrane is coaching wrestling and boxing at the “Y” every day. A number of boys are practicing daily and it is planned to stage bouts between halves of the basketball games. At tempts are being made to arrange matches with other schools that have teams. Among the boys that are out for this sport are Lassiter, Brooks Whitwo/th, Hodge, Clegg, Motsinger and McClean.
