*Be Worthwhile' Girls
Knit for Red Cross
Members of the Be Worthwhile
()lirl Keserve club have taken “ser
vice for defense” as their motto.
At their last meeting, Tuesday, De

some article for the Red Cross.
The girls, who, this semester,
will be advised by Miss Mary Leigh
Scales, new Senior high Fremh

jiieces of handiwork, such as
sweaters, mufflers, gloves and socks,

Blackburn Approves Mode
For Checking Attendance
Because it ha.s eliminated a major
part of the confu.sion and reduced the
amount of skipinng by about 50 per
CcUl., Mi.S. I’-lll" -"I'-Ti
boro lugh .school attendance ofiicer, de
clared in an interview today, that the
new plan for checking absences by the
home room teachers, has proved to be
the most effective method yet tried at
AVith this system a person returning
to schooi after an absence, must pre
sent a written excuse to his home room
teacher, wdio writes him an excused or
unexc'used card to be exhibited and
signed by each of his subject teachers.
Come To School Regularly
She stated that the s,ystcm will be
continued next year without any major
Airs. Blackburn declared emphatical
ly that all students should come to
school as regularly as possible. How
ever, she added, if a hoy or girl is
really sick, he or she should stay at
home and sutliciently recover rather
than run about town.
“We’ve had much better attendance
during the present year, but there’s
still room for more improvement,” Mrs.
The local United States post office
has requested a picture of A. S. Broc-
tor’s defense window.

DeMolays 'Join Up'
In Civilian Defense
Displaying patriotic enthusia’sm for
tlu'ir country, over 20 boys of the
Grei'iisboro chapter of the Order of
DeAIolay volunteered their services to
the (’ivilian Defense corps, December
17. Under fhe sups'rvision of the
Gr( ('nshoro home guards, the DeMolays
are training at the armory so that they
will be prepared to serve the people of
Gr('enshoro as a military unit or as de-
f('iis(' couriers in time of emergency.
Flementary military science, first aid,
air raid precautions, map reading,
('h'nu'iitary auto mechanics and other
useful ('inergency subjects are included
in flu' topics that will be studied by
the boys in their auxiliary service.
“Although similar in many ways to
a government military branch, the boys
will not be called upon to do service
outside Guilford county. Neither will
Uu'.v he under direct government
orders, nor will they he compelled to
remain in the service for any set
length of time,” declared Alajor AV. AA'.

Varied Contest Program
To enter more variety into their
work, the .speech class plans to hold
three contests, a radio announcements

ing contest, and a contest for humor-

The group will enter the American
Legion oratorical tournament, which
will begin Alarch II. The winner will
be announced in April.
Although the speech class will put
special emphasis on the Legion work,
the contest is open to any member of
the student body.
If excuses for car trouble seem to
increase daily, all the blame belongs
to the weather department, for the one
person at Greensboro high school who
is usually the acme of punctuality was
tardy to schooi both Tuesday and AAAed-
nesday of last week. Airs. Nellie Black
burn w'as late, very late, and the rea
son, car trouble.
'fhe tardies were both excused, but
Airs. Blackburn still holds painful
memories of a cold, snowy morning
when her “old faithful” car refused to
budge. Shivering hut undaunted, the
dean phoned the school to warn Air.
Bouth of her impending doom.
AYhen Airs. Blackburn, :ifter some ter
rific hutting and puffing finally caught
the school bus, she settled in her seat
with a sigh. At each turn of the wTieels,
Airs. Blackburn felt better. That is,
until the wheels stopped running. AATth
a long face the bus driver announced
the gas tank was empty.
After an anxious hour of waiting in
the snowy outdoors, the dean boarded
the rescue bus sent by Air. Bouth and
finally tip-toed into her office to issue
herself an admit card.
