WILL BE OBSERVED
Christinas is just around the cor
ner and the Greensboro school sys
tem is preparing to present to its
students December 18 to January 4
as holidays for the Yuletide sea
son. It has been the custom to re
sume -work in the school Decem
ber 31, but this year the students
are given the honor of enjoying
the holidays a few days longer than
usual. Every teacher and student
is looking forward to December 18
as a happy occasion. The biggest
day of all the year comes to glad
den the hearts of everyone. In all
the joys of Christmas the real spirit
will probably be buried in an ava
lanche of gift exchanges, social af
fairs, and good things to eat. Many
of the teachers as well as some of
the students will enjoy Christmas
out of town; others will stay at
home and visit their friends for the
sake of old times. Yet, back of it

‘Th’ a Persian Market” one of a
group of selections played by the
Greensboro high school orchestra in a

the student audience. The haunting
oriental music seemed to arouse more
appreciation from them than the other
renditions. Earl A. SI(H:um, director of
the band and orchestra, led them in
the broadcast which was over the local

SCOUTS OPEN HOSPITAL
TO REPAIR BROKEN TOYS
Located at North Greene; One of Five
Operated Every Christmas
PUBLIC URGED TO CO-OPERATE
The Greensboro Council, Boy Scouts
of America opened the Toy hospital,
November 25, at 122 North Greene.
Tills hospital is one of the five that the
Scouts have operated with great suc
cess every Christmas since 192G.
During the past five years the Toy
hospital has helped the Clirlstmas
Cheer committee with the problem of
toys. The value of the toys repaired
last year was $800, and over GOO chil
dren received the benefits.
The co-operation of the public this
lar has been fairly good, but must be
better if the hospital is to meet the
demands of the Christmas Cheer com
mittee for toys. Henry W. Johnson re
cent executive, wishes to call the at
tention of the public to the fact that
the toys must come in early if they are
be finished in time for distribution
the day before Christmas. The hos
pital cannot hope to take care of a
last minute ru.sh.
From ail indications the hospital
should exceed the mark of $800 set up
last year. During the past week 50
dolls were turned over to the Girl Re
es to be dressed. Several tricycles
liave been put in shape so far, and
lany doll carriages have taken form
since the opening two weeks ago.
:Mr. Johnson urges the people of
Greensboro to help the Scouts in this
undertaking by allowing the hospital,
