“HIGH” LIFE’S NAME
“High” Life is indebted to Miss Thel
ma Floyd, of Room 203, for its name.
When it was decided to have the paper
the editorial staff offered a yearly sub
scription to the one submitting the best
name. As the staff felt that this was such
an appropriate one, it decided to give the
winner two subscriptions. We feel that
this name can mean many things. It is a
high school paper and the name suggests a
higher life in this kind of work.

‘High” Life Dedicated
To a Greater G. H. S.
Its Aim to Keep Alive and Better High
In setting out on the first year of its
life “High” Life wishes to go on record as
dedicating itself to a greater and better
Green.sboro High School. It intends at aU
times to exert a strong influence in sehool
life for the “highest” things, the things
that count. It wishes to remedy a condi
tion which in the past has led pupils to go
off to prep schools for their last year or
two of High School education. It wishes
to unify the sehool and interest the stu
dents in it, so as to keep a class intact
from its Freshman year till its day of
graduation. And last and most impor
tant, it wishes to make the parents of
Greensboro realize that it is they who
make the schools what they are, by h
wide-awake interest in their management
and necessary appreciations, without
which the schools cannot be improved.
