THIS WEEK^S POEM
By Sion M. Lynam
I saw the sun go down today
Behind a bank of clouds;
I saw the folk come home from work
In laughing, hurrying crowds.
I heard a mother’s lullaby;
I heard an evening prayer;
And Xature dressed herself for sleep
While 1 was waiting there.
I felt a heart-beat weaker grow,
I saw the distant gaze,
And kne^' the eyes saw other things
lu long-forgotten days.
I saw the lips attempt to speak,
But heard not wliat they said;
I saw the eyelids close at last,
And knew the man was dead.

carrying the Senior canes a visi

given that fully it is our belief
that our baseball team can turn
the season into a pretty good
show despite the bad beginning.
We have the best individual
material that we have had in a
long time for the turning out of a
real baseball team, but something
is missing. Games that ought to
be victories seem to be defeats.
It may be the fault of some of us
who aren’t in uniform too. At
any rate it is our team, winning or
losing, and it is our business to
boost that team to the end.

THE MIDDLE O’ THE EOAD
Each year slings in its quota
From farm and busy street,
For tile mill to grind, to be refined.
To be turned out complete.
Some lie down on easy street.
Others work the livelong dayj
The lirst retreat and show defeat
When hardships come their way.
The last get glued to the pages,
Forget the wind and sunj
Glimpsing only the stages of remote
Still leaves a lot undone.
A school is not a dustheap.
Or a foppish promenade.
Where bookworms creep, or dull drones
There’s a better road to tread.
HOW ABOUT A LIFE?
It isn’t every day that we have
an opportunity to save a life. It
is one of the big things that come
to us now and then. During the
next month you are going to have
that opportunity. There are mill
ions of people who will freeze
during the coming winter in the
Near East unless we in America
prevent it. North Carolina has
been allotted thirty thousand of
these to save, and North Carolina
is dependng on her sons and
daughters to help in this salvag
ing of human life.
We are not being asked to risk
our own lives in the saving of
theirs, nor even to make a big
sacrifice. W'e are asked to give
our old clothes, things that we
will never wear again, perhaps;
that is all.
None of us would hesitate to
save the life of the fellow who
lives next to us, but are we brave
and thoughtful enough to aid in
this wholesale IKe-saving cam
paign? Jt is just as real as any
life-saving need. Get out your
old clothes right now, and turn
them over to the Near East Re
lief. They will gladly do the rest.
The editor of Maroon and Gold
will be glad to see that these old
clothes get to the place of service,
if vou don’t want the trouble.
Ilore I am on thp liiu^ ajiaiu. Been
missinj? your letters but the newspapers
says \\e‘ve been changing Postmaster
Genei'als several times and the new boys
must not know where I am.
I am thinking of organizing me a soc
ial club fraternity. I would be the
charter member and would get to swat
everybody and if they tried to swat me
would run and hide the Bl-Law.s and
then there wouldn’t be no social club.
Another thing in favor of this is that
we wouldn't have to ha\’e no annual ban
quet this year and we could take our
money and buy a little something to eat
every day insted of eating it all at once
done up in expensive crape paper.
Well after the gang had got almost

The Reidsville High schol track team
triumphed over her two opponents,
Greensboro High and Burlington High
teams, here last Friday in the triangu
lar meet held on Comer field. The win
ner's total was 52^^ points. Burling
ton Highs came second with 45 points,
and Greensboro last with points.
During the early stages of the meet
it looked as if the fight was to be be
tween Greensboro and Burlington, but
with the advent of the field events
Reidsville forged ahead and won the
The high scorer of the day was Rid
dle of Burlington with two ifirsts and
two second places, a total of 16 points.
He was closely puslied by Miller of
Reidsville who was the second highest
individual scorer with 13 points, two
first places and one second.
The whole meet was hotly contested
and the winners in most cases won by
a very narrow margin.
In the dashes Wyrick of Greensboro
was the man of the hour, winning both
the 100-yd. dash and the 220-yd. dash.
In both events, however, he was hard
pushed by Riddle of Burlington.
Coe of Greensboro showed fine form
in the 880-yd. run^ while Stallings of
Reidsville won the 440-yd. run with
out any apparent effort.
The weight events were the surprise
of the day, Delaney of Reidsville in the
shot, Riddle of Burlington in the dis
cus, and Miller of Reidsvile in the jave
lin far outshining their opponents. The
jumps were more closely contested, Rid
dle beating Miller by a scant inch in
tlie broad jump. Miller finally won
out in the high jump, while his team
mate, Neal, took the pole vault.
The relay races were won without
niuch lifficulty by Greensboro. It was
splendid, however, to watch the efforts
of Stallings, Reidsville’s anchor man,
cut down the enormous lead of his op-
ponentSj which he did to a great extent.
