hoiidays, the first to Charlotte, on h'riday,
Deeeinber 31, and the seeosi on Saturday,
.r,',nuary 1, !■) ,i - eveille Ti'-’ two games
were two of the biggest games G. H. S. will
play this season.
The game ■ with Charlotte was more or
less handicapped by the absence of a center
for G. H. S., Garland Daniel, being sick
and unable to make the trip.
During the first ten minutes G. H. S. had
scored two field goals and one foul against
Charlotte’s one field goal and a foul.

Charlotte then began to show more fight
and at the end of the first half, the' score
17-14 in favor of Charlotte.
During the second half, Charlotte seem
ed, to display the greater amomit of goal
shooting and the game ended 43-19 in
The locals put up a game fight, but
were unable to come back as hard as they
might have if the varsity players had been
in the game.

Substitutes, Henderson for Britton,

■ On the following night, G. H. S. lost to
Asheville Highs, 34 28. This was by far
the best and most exciting game thus far
played. The local team out classed Ashe

proberbility have won, had it not been
that two players were taken out for fouls.

14-12 in favor of G. H. S. But in the
second half both teams seemed to display
an unusual amount of pep and fight with

Dr. E. C. Linderman Tall^s
to Economics Students
On last Friday Dr. Linderman,' teacher
of Economics from the N. C. C. W., talked
to the economics students on the question
of labor unions.
Labor unions in America are practically
a new thing, said Dr. Linderman.
The labor union was originated in Eng
land after tiie Industrial Revolution. Be
fore the Revolution the Guild organizations
were in existence in England. These Guilds
woi'e made up of all classes of working
men regardless of what the work was. The
industrial revolution changed labor condi
tions. The craft organization was then in
troduced. The craft organization was the
organizaing of certain kinds of workers,
such as carpenters and bricklayers. Dur
ing the existence of the guilds work was
done in the homes. Since the revolution
the workers started working in factories,
which were unclean, poorly ventilated and
very dark. 'Such conditions gave birth to
a labor union. The laborers now got to
gether to demand better conditions.
Dr. Linderman then discussed the kinds
of organized ,labor. The trade union, he
said, was the organizing of men who had a
certain trade, such as a carpenter. The
carpenter’s union is independent of other
unions, and its purpose is to benefit the
Before the trade unions were introduced
we had what was known as the industrial
union, which we are trying to get back to
day. This was .one largh organization for
all the workers in the nation.
At the present time Great Britain has
an Industrial Union. Dr. Linderman
believes ) that the labor party will
play a part in Great Britain is policy,
but he does not think that a labor party
will ever play a part in our government.
The purpose of the I. W. W.’s is to or
ganize every worker in the nation. This
idea was born in Prance. He says that
Italy is rapidly taking it up.
Dr. Linderman then described the the
ory of collective bargaining. He said no
man wants to be thought of as a piece of
machinery or a tool in a factory. If busi
ness men have a right to_ organize, then
why do working men not have a right to
do so ? They have no power as individuals.
Strikes come suddenly, and as a last re
sort. They are industrial wars. Strikes
are necessary, because it has been seen in
recent strikes that the laborers appeal to
the employer for what they want first.
Strikes cause many who are innocent and
not interested in the cause to suffer, and
often to die.
Dr. Linderman thinks that the labor
question is going to be very serious for the

MR. PARKER SPEAKS IN CHAPEL
The pupils of 6. H. S. most heartily
welcomed an old friend and instructor
yesterday when Mr. J. Merrill Parker
honored us witli his presence.
He gave us an interesting talk on the
subject of high morals and it is hoped that
the boys and girl’s appreciated the truth
of his statements and will make at least a
few of the high ideals be placed before
them their very own.
Hi Cost of Living sits on the wall;
Hi Cost of Living is in for a fall;
When millions of buyers refuse to be bled.
Old Hi Cost of Living will fall over dead.
