NEWLY ELECTED SA COUNCIL
Council Working To
Names Students To
Help On P-TSA Groups
As students are now a definite
part of the P-TSA, the president,
Mrs. John Hicks, appointed several
students to serve on committees at
a recent meeting.
Those who were asked to help are:
Publicity, Helen Moye; health, Ger
trude Parker; free lunch, Harry
Hollingsworth; teachers’ rest room,
Mary Daniels; grounds, Annie
AVellons; hospitality, Nancy Pip
kin and Anne Holmes.
Mr. New’s Glee Club presented a
program and a motion was carried
to support the effort to obtain a
twelfth grade for North Carolina
Proposing amendments to the
constitution, later to be considered
by the student assembly, has been
the chief work of the newly elected
Council for the past three weeks.
Thus far two amendments have
been proposed and one has been
passed, the latter providing for the
inclusion of all standing committee
chairmen and parliamentarian in
the Council and giving them the
right to vote, thus letting the Council
and committees work in closer con
tact. This amendment was intro
duced by George Ham with the two-
thirds majority from Miss Gordner’s
Harry Hollingsworth has intro
duced an amendment calling for the
incoming president to call a meet-
mg of the Council late in May and
appoint the Board of Elections to
serve the following year. As the
constitution now reads the Board
of Elections cannot function until a
council has been formed and no
council can be legally elected until
the Board of Elections functions.
This makes it impossible, to get a
Council or election board legally
functioning in the fall.
An important motion has been
passed, giving the Boys’ Athletic
Club concession rights at all athlet
ic contests at which they are privi
leged to sell. This motion, along
with the amendment that was
passed, will be approved or rejected
at the next SA Assembly meeting.
The proceeds from the concession
sales will go to buy letters for the
boys and girls who earn them in
athletics and to purchase towels and
other materials for the athletes.
Eleven charters have been issued
to the following clubs: Typing, Art,
Bachelor, Journalism, Girls’ Ath
letics, Taxidermy, Scribblers’ Stage
struck. Photography, Needle craft,

William Thompson Honored
William Thompson, ’38, has been
invited as a guest to a two-day engi
neering convention at State College
Out of the fourteen applying for
the invitation, William was selected
on the basis of all-round character.
In 1935 Clarence Berry was in
vited and in 1937 Charlie Dewey was
chosen to attend the annual conven
tion. Both graduates of GHS are
now students in State College.
DROP BY—All Seniors are asked to
go by Miss Gordner’s room oc

HERE’S HOPING — The last

conducted by Emory University,
Atlanta, Georgia. If the Hi News
wins, the editor or some member of
the staff will receive a scholarship

LISTEN IN—Jean Edgerton has
recently written a letter to Dr.
Florence Hale, a nationally known
educator, explaining Goldsboro’s
method of progressive education.
Dr. Hale replied, saying she would
read it on one of her Saturday morn
COMPETITION — The second
issue of the mimeographed ])aper,
Scrihhlers Scoop, is coming out next
week. The activity plans to publish
it every month and has elected Sion
Boney as editor. Ed Smith, ap
pointed by Miss Sanborn, served as
editor of the first issue. The staff
cleared over $4 on their first attempt
in the journalistic world.
Over in the sixth and seventh
grades in the William Street
School, organizations similar to the
Student Association of GHS are
rapidly taking shape.
The sixth grade elected their
class officers March 1. Before elect
ing their officers a temporary coun
cil, formed of one representative
from each homeroom, discussed and
made plans for the election.
Hilda Liles was named president,
Frank Roberts, vice president, and
Susan Griffin, treasurer. A revote
was held, after the Hi News went
to press, between Virginia Faison
and Tew Grant for secretary.
Registration books for the sev
enth graders are to be o])en all next
week with election to be on March
11. At present, Herbert Barbour is
president of the temporary council,
which is serving in the same cajiac-
ity as the sixth grade council did.
Staff Changes Make-up
To "Streamline" Style
“Streamlined” or conventional,
which shall it be? Ask the nuijority
group on the Hi News staff’ and they
will say “streamlined,” for they
carried by a slight margin, the
motion to experiment with the left
flush headlines in this issue.
A heated discussion was held at
staff meeting as to whether it would
be advisable to try “streamlined”
make-up this month. It was decided
to ask the opinion of ]Mr. Edward
Nell, secretary of the Quill and
Scroll, who recommended the change,
provided. that special caution be
taken in the writing of the heads.
Another change has to do with
the make-up of the Editorial Page,
on which the two wide colunnis, con
taining the students’ creative writ
ing and the editorials, have been
moved to the outside, leaving two
single columns within. Also the
mast head, formerly found on the
left side, has been transferred to the
upper right hand column.
Open House will be observed in all
classrooms during April 26; 27 and
28 instead of having another School
Fair, teachers of the Goldsboro Pub
lic School system recently decided.
The term Open House means that
all classrooms will be open for in
spection by school patrons while
classes are in progress from 9:00 to
12:00 o’clock during the three days.
In the afternoons classrooms will
also be open from 3 :30 to 5 :00 and
at night from 7:30 to 9 :00 o’clock.
In GHS the classrooms will prob
ably stay open until about 10 o’clock
A committee composed of Mr.
J. H. Askins and Miss Cone from
GHS, Misses Mary Thompson, and
Hilda Judd of the grammar grades,
and Mrs. C. E. Wilkins and Miss
Florence White of the Primary
school, brought forward the idea
and the teachers voted to have Open
Each afternoon and night of the
Open House different schools will
present programs consisting of work
done in classes or in activities. The
day set for the high school is Friday
afternoon and night, April 29.
Reasons given by the committee
in favor of the Open House plan
were: j'iViui'e space vvuuiu ue\i\un
able to exhibit a larger amount of
work. (2) More students would par
ticipate in explaining the exhibits,
as the visitors would look on at an
actual classroom at study. (3) More
opportunities for the observation of
the work as well as the exhibits would
be offered. (4) Such a plan would
appeal to out-of-town ])eople, as the
teachers Avho attended the district
meeting last November showed a real
interest in observing classes at work.
(5) More appreciation of the exhibits
would result, as the w'ork would be
observed in the quiet of the class
rooms rather than the confusion of
the fair. (G)Planning and staging
the exhibition in the schoolroom
would result in an interesting piece
of work in itself for the students of
the class. (7) Open House would
attract as many if not more visitors
than the fair if given due publicity.
Hi News Extends Time
In Photography Contest
Because of the lack of interest
in the Amateur Photographers’ con
test being sponsored by the Hi Nkws,
the staff’ has decided to ('xtend it
until Aj)ril 15 and to change one of
the limiting rules.
There will be the same three
divisions: candid, scenic, and un
usual, but the pictin*es need not b(^
taken on GHS campus. The award
in each division is a dollar in trade
at III News Shop.
Since staff nunnbers are barred
from the Amateur Photographers’
contest, Miss Gordner is sponsoring
a similar contest for staff' memb(>rs
only, with the same rules and clos
ing date, with the prizes in each di
vision being bound volumes of the
1937-1938 Hi News.
All rules of .the contest will be
found on the senior bulletin board
in room 19.
The judges for both contests are
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Belk and Mr.
