Gid dens, will be uncontested for the first time since the initial debate in 1927. NEWLY ELECTED SA COUNCIL Council Working To Amend Constitution 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 schools. 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 homeroom. 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, and Radio. Pictured above are the members of the newly elected Council: Reading left to right: Eirst row, officers: Harry Hollingsworth, treasurer; Kala Rosenthal, recording secretary; James Heyward, president; Scottie Dam eron, corresponding secretary; James Crone, vice president. Council members, second row: Oscar Williams (Koch); Dolores West (Middle ton) ; Harriet Noell (Gordner); Grace Hollingsworth (Langston); Thelma Crumpler (White); Third row: George Ham, parliamentarian; Sally Sanborn (Sanborn); Cora Jane MacMillian (Jeffery); Antoinette Lupton (Hamer); Hilda Longest (Johnson) ; Prince Nufer (Newell) ; Third row: Horace Potter, vice president of Sophomore Class; Wyche Ray (Barrett); Jim Manly, vice president of Senior Class; Bill Kemp (Cox) ; John Roberts (Taylor).

DOWN HALLS Glances and Comments DROP BY—All Seniors are asked to go by Miss Gordner’s room oc casionally to observe the Senior Bul letin Board. All committees and announcements concerning seniors will be posted there. HERE’S HOPING — The last three isues' of the Hi-News have been entered in the journalism contest conducted by Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia. If the Hi News wins, the editor or some member of the staff will receive a scholarship to Emory. COMING UP—At the banquet for all Goldsboro teachers the Bache lors Club, dressed in white coats, won laurels waiting on the tables. Charlie Edgerton was elected chief waiter. Eddie Mansour is president of the club. 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 ing broadcasts. 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 at night. 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 House. 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. Henry Moore.
