For A Better G. H. S.
GREENSBORO HIGH SCHOOL, OCTOBER 29, 1920

Friday night, Oct. 22, was a red letter
day in the history of the Junior’ class.
At that time between the hours of eight
and eleven, they held their annual inaugu
ral reception at the G. H. S. The halls
and chapel were artistically decorated—
carrying out a color scheme suggestive of
On arriving, the guests were given slips
filled out for progressive conversation. The
close of each period was announced by a
gong. During the evening fortunes were
told to the satisfaction of all who desired
information concerning tlie past, present,
or future. Everyone visited the “Dark
Dungeon,” which was in the upstairs hall.
There they made the acquaintance of sev
eral ghosts, gobblins, witches, and spooks.
After everyone had visited all the places
of interest, they assembled in chapel for
the inauguration ceremony. All the lights
were turned out and two candles on the
stage were lit. The party of animated
young folks were told to imagine tliat they
were in a dense forest at mid-night. Soon
an old witch who was about to die came in
to view. She tried to save her life by
dancing all the dances of her youth. The
candles burned down, however, and she

In Close Game 14 to 1
Fordham and Giimsley Stars for Greensboro—Charlotte
Met Today on Her Home Ground
6. H. S. defeated the Winston-Salem
High’s by the close score of 14 to 7 last
Saturday in one of the best High School
games ever .slated at Cone Park. One of
the largest crowds ever at a High school
game was present, largely composed of
Twin City rooters.
The" victory was one of the most impor
tant of the season, and was the first time
a Winston High team had been defeated
by 6. IT. S. in a number of years. Last
fall both games were tied, 0—0, and 6—6.
Saturday’s game will go down in G. H.
S.’s liistory not only as a victory for G. H.
S.,^ but as a defeat for Winston, admin
istered by Greensboro High.
Neither team was successful in scoring
the first quarter. Greensboro received
the ball as a result of a kickoff by Scheidt,
Winston’s tackle, on the 40 yard line. Af
ter being held for doivns the ball went over
to Winston, and see sawed back and for
wards for the rest of the quarter. End of
first quarter.—G. 0. W. 0. At the be
ginning of the second quarter Greensboro
seemed to take "W. H. S. off its feet and
by a series of line plunges, with Grimsley
carrying the ball over, the first touchdown
of the day was registered. Grimsley kick
ed goal. It was in this quarter that Win
ston came within 5 yards of scori.eg, Grim
sley made a beautiful pass to J. Transou,
who after running for 5 yards fumbled the
ball. A Winston man recovered tire ball
only to be stopped by the timekeeper’s
whistle as a reminder that the quarter was
up. Score at end of second quarter G. H.
S. 7—W. H. S. 0.
The third quarter seemed to ce more or
less a punting contest between Scheidt of
Winston and Daniel of Greensboro. Neither
side was able to gain through the line and
the ball was kept swaying from one side
to the other as a result of punting. Bal
lard, who replaced Fordham on account of
the latter’s bad knee, showed up well. He
made repeated gains thru the line which
added the second touchdown for Greens
boro. Plunges by Ballard, P. Transou,
and finally by Grimsley, who carried the
ball over for the second touchdown against
Winston. Grimsley kicked goal. Score
end of 3rd quarter, G. H. S. 14—W. H.
Winston’s only scoring came in the last
quarter as a result of an intercepted for
ward pass. Scheidt broke through the line
and intercepted a forward pass, running
30 yards for Winston’s only touchdown of
the day. Winston, kicked goal. Greens
boro was unable to register anything this
quarter, the game ending, G. H. S. 14 and

ATHLETIC COUNCIL HOLDS
ITS FIRST MEETING
An Athletic Council, consisting of three
members from the Boys’ Athletic Club,
three members from the Girls’ Athletic
Club and a council at large from the stu
dent body met on Saturday morning. The
councillors from the boys’ Club are: G. C.
Fordham, Fred Maus and Paul Transou;
councillors from the girls’ club are Nellie
Irvin, Carlotta Johnson and Alice Way-
nick. The councillor at large is James
Hendrix, who was also unanimously elect
ed chairman of the council. Alice Way-
nick is the secretary.
This council is to decide all matters of
athletic impoi-tanee, such as the scholar
ship requirements for making a team and
the amount of work to be done on a team
in order to receive a badge or the G. H. S.
This council meets with a council of
coaches, but it is hoped that this council
will remove part of the responsibility from
the teachers and coaches.
