John son Co-directors, Set Dec. 4 for “lolanthe” gilbert SULLIVAN OPERA Ed Landreth and Jimmy Hinton Are t Take the Leading Male Roles. HOMESPVN WINS AWARD IN MAGAZINE CONTEST Homespun wins first place in S, I, P. A. for the third time. Win ning the first time in the spring of 1927.

A. held at Washington and Lee University, Lexington, Va. Martha Carson and Evelyn Hadden lead in the opera, “lolanthe,” under the supervision of the music and dramatic de partments of Greensboro high school, will be presented December 4. It is a Gilbert and Sullivan. It has been stated that the music of the opera is unusually light and charm ing. Mr. Johnson and Mr. Miller, the co-directors, believe this to be one of the most successful operas they have ever attempted to produce. The plot is an unusual and compli cated one. The kind that Gilbert and Sullivan have made famous. It is a well known fact that if a fairy married a mortal she must die. lolanthe, a favorite of the fairy queen, married a mortal. The queen, because of her love for lolanthe, instead of killing her, has the little fairy exiled to the earth for life. They find-she has a 23-year-old son. This young man, Strephoii, by name, is in love with Chancellor’s ward, Phyllis. But Phyllis sees him talking with lo lanthe and accuses him of having another love. In vain does poor Stre- phon plead that lolanthe is his mother. Phyllis cannot understand how lolanthe can he so young and beautiful and still be the mother of Strephon. In spite of their lovers' quarrel, Phyllis and Strephon love each other and wish to marry. The Lord Chan cellor, a comical old man who rather likes to flirt with his many beautiful wards, refuses to allow Phyllis to marry Strephon even though he him self is inclined to want marriage. At this critical moment lolanthe ap pears and informs the Chancellor that he cannot marry because he is already her husband. To complicate the inter esting drama even more, the queen falls in love with a mortal. She then decides that it is all right for fairies to marry mortals, after all.

CHAPEL CONDUCT FLAYED The House of Representatives has passed on several measures for the im provement in various ways of this high school. If the Student Council like wise approves, these new rules will im-. mediately go into effect. The noise in chapel at G. H. 8. be comes noticeable enough to be discon certing to visitors and embarrassing to teachers and to those students who take any pride in their school. On these occasions, the House voted to accept the responsibility of quiet ing unruly students, and any member of the House will be authorized to first warn those causing trouble and, if this produces no effect, to take them to the Noise Must Cease The noise in the halls between the end of the last class and the dismission by the session room teachers thought to be unnecessary. Many of the students are in the habit of going to their lockers before going to their session rooms, and this, besides caus ing much of the noise, wastes the of the teacliers and those students who go directly to their session rooms. Students are therefore requested to return immediately from their last period class to their session rooms to hear all necessary announcements and be dismissed promptly. To enforce this ruling each member of the House of Representatives will stand at his session room door and see that no lockers are opened in his vicinity. Milk Bottles Broken Another condition which the House thought required immediate attention was the number of milk bottles broken or lost by the students. The cafeteria has to pay five cents for each bottle not returned. When over a hundred bottles are not accounted for, it can be easily seen that the cafeteria is losing money. No action was taken on this matter ex cept to ask the representatives to ask their classmates to do their part in eliminating this expense. Since the House was largely responsi ble for putting the Activities Card oft sale this year, the members thought that they should also take the responsi bility for seeing that the sale was cessful. Each representative has been asked to urge all those in his session room who signed for the tickets to buy them at the earliest possible date. SOCIOLOGY CUSSES VISIT CAPITAL CITY Students of Miss McNairy and Mr. Ham ilton Enjoy Sight of State Buildings. COLONEL FRED OLDS IS GUIDE Twelve cars, carrying the combined sociology classes of Miss Mary MeNairy and William 8. Hamilton, numbering 75 students in all, left for Raleigh, Thursday morning, October 22, at 7:30 o’clock. Colonel Fred Olds, Civil War veteran, met the group at the Y. M. C. A and conducted them through the following interesting buildings: State musemum, governor’s mansion, famous for its ten thousand dollars silver service which has toured the world three times, and a seven hundred and ninety year old piece of tapestry presented by the king and queen of Belgium. Colonel Olds pointed out the site of the first railroad. The Christ’s Episco pal church, with its one hundred thou sand dollar painting of the “Ennuncia- tion of Christ” was of great interest to the students. A visit to the Capitol and the Hall of History preceded lunch at Wilson’s cafeteria. Colonel Olds led the group next to state prison. It was learned that one hundred and fourteen men had been electrocuted there since 1911. Two men were to be electrocuted the next day. A trip to the School for the Blind and to Dix HU! for the in sane, completed the day of sight-see ing. As a token of appreciation, the classes presented Colonel Olds with a copy of “New Wings” and “Buds.” Laat year. Miss McNairy’s sociology classes turned over the excess subscrip tion money for the trip to the publica tion of High Life, which the staff need ed, greatly at that time.

Education Pays A boy may earn a hundred dollars a day by going to college—but he must wait to collect. The United States Bureau of Education shows that college graduates earn from $56,- 000 to $112,000 more by the time they are 60 than do those who go to work after being graduated from high school. This would give the four years’ course a cash value of from $77 to $155 a day.—World’s Work. Big Sister Committee, Now Called Welcome, to Help Incoming Sophomores. MRS.

NO OFFICIAL REPORT YET Possible 20 Per Cent Additional Cut in Teacher’s Salaries Pius 10 Per Cent Already Made. In the past the Greensboro school sys tem has attempted to give everything and above the requirements, that it was possible to do. This year it is under a state system in which the state furnishes the funds for running the schools for the first six months. The money is furnished for the remaining time by the city and county. Power Given Board Power was given to the equalization board at the laat legislature to super local budgets. The official written notification of the $66,856 additional t^e budget over the $80,000 re duction already made by the board, re sulting in a total reduction of about $146,000, had not been received. In other words, the budget for the last three months of school may be cut in half. May Cut Curriculum The following is a supposition of what piay happen if the cut is officially made: 1. Reduction of the term to seven and one-half months, which would also necessitate an additional 20 per cent reduction in teachers’ salaries, which al ready have been cut 10 per cent. 2. Dismissing approximately 35 teaeh- 's and workers, eight of which would be taken from the high school. This would increase the teacher load by four or five pupils per class and a complete re-assignment of students. 3. The elimination of telephone serv ice, or the total health budget, leaving that task to the city or unprovided for. The elimination of all special sub jects. These include the following; music, glee club, art, home economies, manual training, mechanical drawing, journalism, creative English, com plete business course, sociology, cur rent problems, economics, creative chemistry, nature study, trigonometry, college algebra, solid geometry, and all physical education. 5. The abandonment of the night school, in which there are 1,000 regis tered students. Students Must Help It is up to the students now. If they want to cut out the most interesting courses in school, the classes that re lieve the monotony of everyday read ing, writing, and ar'tthmetie, or if they want just seven and a half months of school, so that they would be. obliged to take examinations to enter any col lege, it is up to them to say so. If they want the advantages, however, of a wider education, if they want to become better citizens of the United States when they have finished their school training and be able to follow with in telligence the problems of their country, or if they appreciate what the school authorities have done in placing the present curriculum at their disposal, it is now time for them to show gratitude. Co-operation Needed They must work shoulder to shoulder ill saving time, obeying rules, and co operating with their teachers in the time that is given them. They must speak up and say where they stand in this crisis which wil! affect every child in the city schools. Also they must stand by the administration in their effort to maintain the standards that they already have. At 6:45 P. M. a banquet was held the cafeteria of the high school. Dur ing the serving of the courses, the school orchestra rendered a great a ber of favorite pieces. After the banquet, the president called a business session. Dr, Howard Rondthaler, president of Salem college, spoke on one’s future vocation, stress ing especially that the prime purpose ■of education is to Iparn and discover s self. A representative from Hugh Munson high school began with the topic, .“Social Affairs.” With the help of suggestions from other schools the following kinds of socials were men tion: parties or teas for freshmen and new pupils, parties and entertaimnents for Junior-Senior, home room social af fairs and dances (not sponsored by the school.) Needham Broughton school brought .up the subject of Discipline. There was quite an argument, with pros and cons- as to whether the student council should or should not discipline the stu dents. They discussed ways of handling those who are found guilty of cheat ing, stealing, or any other crime. The Student Congress suggested having honor campaigns, inspirational speak ers, and honor societies as means to eliminate these crimes. The Student Congress attended the last session Saturday morning to elect officers. They elected Katherine Met calf. of Raleigh, president; Hughes Scott, of Greensboro, vice-president, and Jane Ross, of Charlotte, secretary. Kinston was chosen as the meeting place this t'Lme next year. GUY B. PHILLIPS ELECTED PRESIDENT OF N. C. E, A. Group Discusses Financial Difficulties of State School in Meeting Held in Winston-Salem. S. MARTIN SPEAKS TO TEACHERS Guy B. Phillips, superintendent of the city schools, was elected president of the Northwestern District of N, C. B. A. at the annual convention held at Winston-Salem October 23-24. Failure of the North Carolina general assembly to “secure a sufficient sum of money to establish standards sufficiently high to assure a minimum essential of the school system” was discussed and sev eral resolutions concerning this matter were adopted. Included in the resolutions adopted is the statement “whenever state sup port can become actual, many problems will be solved, but as long as it remains theoretical the schools will suffer.” The teachers were firm in demanding pro visions from the state to carry on “a wider program of work in music, art, industrial arts, physical education, health, or any other activity in line with the educational work of the stu dents.” The meeting was concluded with a talk by Santford Martin, editor of the Winston-Salem Journal, on “The Press and Education’s Dividends.” The next meeting wil! be held in GreSnshoro in the fall of 1932.
