Activities Survey
Indicates Progress
A survey of the many different
activities indicates that progress has
been made in the first twelve weeks.
Miss Bell’s dramatic class of
twenty-two junior boys and girls has
recently given “The Great Choice.”
They are planning to give three one-
act plays sometime in February at
night and charge a small admission.
The:y^are studying from a textbook
called “The Stage and Screen.”
Their goal is to get every member
of the activity in at least one play
during the year.
Students have expressed the
opinion that “The Great Choice”
was the best play dramatically that
has ever been given in GHS.
A piano, three guitars, a harp, a
violin, and a fiddle make up Mr.
Mahaffey’s string band. They play
by ear. Robert Crumpler plays a
guitar; Jerome Hodges, a harp;
Roscum Byrum, a guitar and harp;
Paul Stanley, a guitar and tenor
banjo; Ed Britt, a violin and fiddle;
and Herbert Weignant, a guitar.
Mr. Mahaffey plays the piano.
The ’ Pr.;js
Best’s supervision is writing for the
Neivs Argus. They are learning to
write different types of news stories
and are hoping to put out a mimeo
graphed paper soon.

Citizenship Is Topic
Of P-T.S.A. Meeting
Choosing the subject “Citizen
ship,” Miss Margaret B. Kornegay
spoke on ISTovember 17 to more than
400 parents and students at the first
P.-T.S.A. meeting of this year held
in the high school auditorium.
Miss Kornegay spoke of the rise
of Communism, Fascism and
]S[azism, which are causing much
alarm. But she added, “we should
not let these things alarm us when
we are not alarmed by the abuses
w'hich we allow in our own govern
ment. Often we allow men to re
main in office after they have for
saken their duties.”
“Citizenship,” she said, “im
plies certain rights and these rights
carry responsibilities. The vote is
the ‘key’ to democracy and should
not be treated lightly.”
Mr. Hugh Dortch, president, pre
sided over the meeting. He an
nounced that the project for the year
is to furnish new equipment for the
library at an approximate cost of
one hundred dollars.
Miss Adams, accompanied by Miss
Bell, played violin selections,
“Serenade” and “London Air” by
Mr. Johnson introduced the new
teachers to the assembly, after which
the representatives were counted
from the various home rooms. Miss
Suiter’s room with the most repre
sentatives came first; Miss Ipock’s
room, second; and Mrs Middleton’s

Start Second Session
Of Physical Education
That GHS students may partici
pate in more varied games, meet
ings of the sophomores and freshmen
were held November 29 and 30 in
the auditorium to form new teams
and introduce new games. This
marked the beginning of the second
session of the GHS Physical Educa
tion program.
The boys and girls will play soft
ball, touch football, newcomb (for
definition see sports page), aerial
tennis, and volleyball as they did
the last session. In addition to
these there will be soccer, basket
ball, and other games such as horse
shoes, handball, tennis, and golf ball
driving for girls. The boys will be
unable to drive the golf balls because
they hit the ball too hard and so
accidentally they may injure some
one. “The freshmen boys under 135
pounds will play regular football,”
Mr. Crawford said.
On the campuses five courts have
been made as a part of the Physical
Education equipment. There are
three courts on the east campus for
volleyball, aerial tennis, and new
comb, and two basketball courts, one
for the girls on the north campus
and one for the boys on the east.
ISTYA boys built these courts. The
money to Wy the material for the
posts and goals came from the
Physical Education fund, which
comes through the sale of activity
