226 Students Worked
During Yule Holiday,
Says Adviser Proctor
One would think that the pupils at
Greensboro hish school don’t get
enough work during regular school
days, for according to a report made
last Friday by A. S. Proctor, distribu
tive education adviser, approximately
22G students put in hundreds of hours
of manual labor in various local stores
during the Christmas holidays.
The average worker received •‘f.20 per
hour during his time of employment.
Some worked as sales clerks, others
as shipping clerks, and still others
iabored as package wrappers, mailing
clerks and mail carriers.
Woolwordi’s Employed Most
Woolworth’s, with .“Id students on its
payroll, boasts of employing the most
high schoolers, while Meyer’s, with 21,
gave ,iobs to the second largest number.
Although all the temporary em
ployees concede that it was hard work,
the great ma.iority thought it was a lot
of fun, and they found more' than
ample compensation in their pay
ISIany students will have part time
.iobs as a result of their Christmas
The following chart shows the num
ber of students employed by each
Woolworths, .13; Meyers, 21 ; Kress,
20; Silvers, 13: Belk’s, 1.3: Grants, 13;
Big Star, 4; Yanstory. 4; Post office,
2: A. & P„ 3; Guilford Dairy, 5.
There were a large number of busi
nesses that used only one or two stu
dents ; therefore they have not listed
each place individually. Approrimately
150 of these 220 students have regular
part time .iobs.
