The G. H. S. Athletic Association for
1921-22 Avas started off with a rush on
September 26 with 634 charter members.
The membership is expected to increase to
the seven hundred mark within the next
week or so. This ■will make the average for
the school around 87 per cent.
This unusually large membership may be
Ik accounted for by the dues system which
was recently adapted. The system is as
follows: Instead of paying a 50c initial
fee for membership as was required in
previous years, 5c is due each week through
out the school year. Tickets to all athletic
events are issued to those who have paid
their dues in full.
By this system both the association
treasury and the members profit, for the
association will take in around $1,000, an
amount more than that taken in last year,
and each member will see a game for 5e in
stead of 25 as in previous years.
For the first two weeks $96.30 was taken
in, many having paid ahead a -iveek or so,
and a few for the whole year. The Senior
room 106 led in ambunt turned in, being
accredited with $13.50, but it did not have
100 per cent, membership. The association
is especially proud of rooms 107, 201, 208,
5B, and 8B, who are 100 per cent, associa
tion members.
The new officers for the association are:
Neal Jones President
Katherine Gregory Vice-President
Jeff Fordham Treasurer
Grey Fetter Asst. Treasurer
James Wilkins Secretary
Robert Irvin Asst. Secretary
Physical Culture, a course heartily reco-
mended by the State Board of Education,
has been installed in the High School for
the first time this year. The course is -un
der the supervision of Coach Harry A.
Rabenhorst for the boys, and Miss Detwiler
for the girls, and is a part of the County
Playground Movement.
Mr. Park, in charge of the playground
tfork in the wdiole county, laid the founda
tion for such a course this summer. Mr.
Rabenhorst, a .specialist in the playground
education, has taken over the High School
end of the work.
Every pupil in the High School is re
quired to take this work twice each week
during chapel periods.
The exercises are carried on in the rear
of Spring Street School. Several classes
are given each day by both the directors of
the boys and girls athletics.

After two weeks training at Camp Hi
cone and four weeks hard practice at the
local field the runners up of the scholastic
Western Championship of North Carolina
last year have taken the first and second
games of the 1921 season.
The men are working hard. Coach
Rabenhorst and assistant coaches A1 Pur-
riugtou and Charlie Phillips see to that.
It looks good for the state ehampionship
to be played at Chapel Hill this year.
Last year the team played nine games,
winning six of them. They -were defeated
in the game for the Western Supremacy
of North Carolina in foot-ball by Monroe
by a score of 2 to 0.
The loss of Fordham, Grimsley, Hendrix
Moss and Ballard, all star players last
year, will be felt. The majority, however,
of last years first string men are back.
“Jodie” Transou -ivho made all-state
tackle last year is back, a tower of strength
in the line, this year. “Willie” Green
who played creditably in several games
for the past season is holding down left
guard. George Taylor, all state second
team man, and Greensboro’s fighting cap
tain, now holds down the center of the
line. Next to Captain Taylor on right
guard will be found “varsity” Forsythe,
who held do-wn that position last year,
while “Bunnie” Barker is playing his
usual good game at right tackle. Hender
son and Hinkle, both experienced men, are
on ends. Henderson is fast, a deadly
tackier and good on forward passes, while
Hinkle is noted for his clipping ability.
In the backfield, Paul Transou, is back
at quarter, playing a better game than
ever. Garland Daniel, w’ho last year play
ed center, is now holding down ‘ ‘ Christie ’ ’
Fordham’s place at full back. He shows
a great deal of drive' and speed. Andy
Bell, last year sub half is now running
Miss Lillian Killingsworth, head of the
English Department, has been appointed
first dean of girls in the Greensboro High
School.The need of siieh an advisor has long
been felt by the students of the institution
and the appointment of Miss Killingsworth
to this position has received the unani
mous approval of the G. H. S. girls. Miss
Killings-vvorth has been associated with the
school for three years and during that time
she has won the hearts of her “little sis
ters” by her sympathy and interest in the
affairs of young women. Besides her du
ties as dean of girls. Miss Killingsworth has
been appointed, this year, to the head of
the English Department.
Greensboro goes to Winston-Salem to
morrow to meet her ancient rival on her
home ground. The game will be a hard
fought one as Winston has always turned
out a well trained, fighting squad; and the
squad this year is no exception to the rule,
Winston having already defeated Oak
Ridge 7 to 0. Greensboro has also turned
out a team which is in no way inferior to
past production. In the two games which
she has played her opponents were defeat

Others who are showing up well are:

plentiful revenge for their last year’s de
feat at the hands of D. M. I., when they
smashed the visitors line and swept their
ends for a 26 to 0 victory last Saturday,
at Cone Park. Coach Rabenhorst’s men
outplayed the visitors throughout the
game and would have scored at least once
more had it not been for off.side penalties.
The game was won mainly by straight
football. Greensboro tried only one forward
pass and completed it. Danville tried her
“spread formation” which carried her to
victory last year, but with very little suc
cess. With Daniel, Bell, and Transou, run
ning so strongly in the backfield and the
line outplayed its opponents, there was
no need of anything . else. Greensboro
showed such a strong defense that Danville
did not make a first down until the third
quarter. Many times it threw the runner
for a less.
Danvdle showed more strength in fourth
quarter, making repeated gains over the
Greensboro line. A fumble gave them the
ball on Greensboro’s 15 yard line, but
Greensboro’s defense stiffened
were unable to carry it over,
the only^ time Greensboro’s
threatened. .
The greatest thrill of the game came in
the first quarter, when Bell, Greensboro’s
left half, received a punt and ran 50 yds.
through the opposing team for a touch
down. His teammates ran him good iu-
terperenee and his own speed carried him
out of the reach of most of the taeklers.
The game started with Greensboro kick
ing off to Danville. Greensboro held Dan
ville for downs and Danville punted.
Tlien Greensboro ran a series of line bucks
all the backfield making steady gains un
til the ball was on Danville’s goal. Dan
ville carried it over for the first touch
down in a delayed buck. Bell’s long run
and Danville’s kick for goal gave Greens
boro a 13 to 0 lead.
In the second quarter neither side scored.
Greensboro’s chances for a score looked
good several times but penalties spoiled
At the beginning of the second half
Greensboro came out as strong as ever and
scored again. Danville received the ball
m the center of the field, broke loose and
scored again. Daniel received the ball
over for a touchdown on the same delayed
luck that netted the first score. The final
touchdown was made in this quarter.
Greensboro blocked a punt near Danville’s
goal. Then by a series of line bucks she
carried the ball over. Danville showed
some good defensive work here and it was
