MASCOTS APPEAR IN PLAY Two Scenes Presented With Members of Class on Board President’s Private Yacht The graduating class of Greensboro High School held their class day exer cises "Wednesday night, January 25, at the Odell Memorial Hall The exercises were in two scenes—- both on a private yacht owned by Ed Kuykendall. The time is projected to 1938. The present graduating class was holding a reunion. In the first scene many of the old characters were introduced. “Jimmie” Lassiter, the first man to fly across the Atlantic in a wingless airplane, dropped down from the skies and joined the party. Harry Gump soon appeared in his new limou sine, loaded down with his girl friends. Miss Tillett and Miss Walker radioed their regrets at being unable to attend the function. The second scene depicted the last day on the yacht, at which time the group re-enacted the class day exercises of 1928. The protagonists in this were Bill Fife, who read the last will and testament of that 1928 graduation; Frances Sink, who presented the class history; Elizabeth Betts and Evelyn Parks, reciting the class poem; and Margaret High, with her class prophecy. The program was concluded by Ed Kuykendall, president of the mid-term graduates, presenting the class mascots in the role of his children. The Neivs, Commercial High School, New Haven, Conn.: We have received several issues of your paper, and always enjoy reading it. Your paper is good, but we suggest that you collect all the sport articles in one section. We like your Spanish column. How about the French enthusiasts? The Oracle, Bradenton, Florida: Your paper is snappy and interest ing, but we might suggest several changes. Black ink instead of blue, and smaller headlines to make it less top-heavy. Your editorials are fine, but how about cutting the humor columns a bit? The Buzzer, Baton Rouge, La.: The last issue on January 17 seemed a bit top-heavy. Can’t you change that ad on the editorial page? STUDENTS PREPARE FOR TRIANGULAR DEBATE 25 Pupils Working on Query to Be Dis cussed—Preliminaries Held Early in February M’NARY-HAUGEN BILL IS TOPIC Work on the triangular debate is get ting under way at the high school. Around 25 pupils are working on the queiT, “Resolved, that Congress should enact the YIcNary-Haugen farm relief bill,” which will be discussed by the high schools throughout the state. At a meeting of all interested in the debate held Wednesdaj^ afternoon, Jan uary 18, plans were laid for securing material on the subject and for the preliminary debate to be held the sec ond week in February. At this time four debaters and two alternates will be chosen from the contestants. A team composed of two members will debate Winston-Salem here on the affirmative side of the question, while a negative team of two will go to High Point to meet the high school there. Although the definite date has not yet been announced, these debates will be held in the latter part of March or the first part of April. Last year Greensboro, represented by Harry Gump and Henry Biggs, won the Aycock Memorial Cup for the first time. In case Greensboro should win it again this year the cup will become the per manent property of the school. Al though none of the debaters of last year’s team is back, those who are de bating hope to repeat the victory. No man is born into the world whose work Is not born with him. There is always work. And tools to work withal, for those who will; And blessed are the horny hands of toil. —Lotcell. Do you chew, smoke? No, I have no feminine habits. The Gmlfordian, Guilford College, N. C.: IVe always enjoy reading your news paper. The Record, Mamaroneck, N. Y.: The Record is good, and your edi torials are particularly worth reading. We suggest varying your type of head lines. Keep up your good work. BIG SISTERS ENTERTAIN AT MOCK TRACK MEET Pomona and New Girls Are Guests of Honor at Big Party in Cafe teria January 19 A mock track-meet was the form of entertainment with which the senior “Big Sisters” entertained the new Po mona girls, and teachers and the new girls recently entering G. H. S. The social Avas given in the school cafe teria, Thursday, January iy, I92S. The “Big Sisters” formed a mock receiving line to greet their guests. Each girl boAA'ed three times to her guests, and repeated her name each time; then the guest replied in like manner. This form of greeting caused much merriment, and put the girls at their ease at once. Each AA’as giAmn, upon entering, a number and G. H. S. colors. They AAmre then divided into tAAm groups, headed by a captain and cheer leader. Then the groups competed in various mock races, such as: a chariot race, balloon race, neAVspaper race, volley ball Avith balloons, egg race, cracker race, and banana race. Eskimo pies and suckers AA’ere seiumd throughout the entertainment. THE BIG PARADE “Tramp! Tramp! Tramp!” by tAvms and threes, by dozens and scores, ’n mobs and hordes, unendingly they come. Worthy pedagogues leap aside to aA-oid the advancing masses, Avhile dignified students look on aghast, their habitual decorum upset by this unprece dented spectacle. The professors struggle madly to guide the invaders into the proper chan nels. Irresistible, they oAmrfloAv the halls and fill the auditorium. Those Avhose lot it is to direct this hetero geneous band mount to the platform and in stentorian tones attempt to in culcate the “spirit of G. H. S.” into these recruits. 'Ydiat Herculean labors! Alas! hoAv impossible to achieve. Manfully our teachers struggle; fran tically they distribute hand-books in an effort to direct the restless horde. And oh, Avith Avhat joy they finally see them stream out to become the bane of session room teachers’ lives. Such is the ordeal of registering the two hundred and forty-five. Mother: Noaa% son, if you do just as the doctor tells you, you will get along fine in this hospital. Small boy: I’ll do just as he says, mother, but I AAmn’t let him pack no crying baby off on me like he did you. iil li! fi iii A; ft
