‘HIGH” LIFE, OCTOBER 14th, 1921
TWO STRAIGHT PIGSKIN
(Continued from Page 1)
only after four plays that P. Transou
slipped over for the final touehdown.
In the final quarter both teams fought
hard, but Greensboro had the better of it.
When the whistle blew Greensboro had
pushed the ball up to Danville 20 yards
line and it seemed as though she must make
another touehdown. Pordham was substi
tuted for Daniel in this quarter and for re
mainder of the game played a good game,
making several good gains. Daniel, de
spite an injured knee, was one of Greens
boro’s chief ground gainers, making two of
Greensboro’s touchdowns and kicking goal
twice. Bell also played brilliantly, run
ning 50 yards for a touehdown and always
gaining ground when called upon. Paul
Transou, not content with using his head
in running the team, used his legs as well,
making repeated gains and scoring Greens
boro’s final touchdown when Danville was
holding at her best. In the line Captain
Taylor and J. Transou stood out for their
splendid interference and breaking up op
ponents’ plays. Transou blocked two
punts during the game.
A large crowd witnessed the game due
to the efforts of Manager Norman Cooper,
who has been working hard for the team
during the season.

THE GUILFORD GAME
Coach Rabenhorst’s gridiron warriors
defeated the Guilford College scrub team
34 to 6 in a one-sided battle Friday, Sep
tember 30th, at Cone Park.
The game started with Greensboro kick
ing off to Guilford. Greensboro held
Guilford for domis and by a series of line
kicks carried the ball near the goal line and
Daniel, Greensboro’s fullback, carried it
over for the first touehdown.
In the second quarter Greensboro scored
two more touchdowns, Daniel carrying the
ball over both times. During the latter
part of the quarter the second backfield
was sent in, P. Transou for Greensboro
scoring a touchdown by a dash around the
end and a 35-yard broken field run, Guil
ford made her score when Fra'iier, quarter
back, intercepted a forward pass and ran
60 yards for a touchdown.
The only scores made in the fourth quar
ter was a toudidown by Daniel which netted
Greensboro 7 points. The game ended
with Greensboro 34 and Guilford 6.
The line giving promise of strength for
an early ?????? did its work well,
opening up holes on the offensive and
holding on the defensive. Guilford made
only one first down and that was on a
The backfield showed lots of drive.
Daniel, Transou and Bell did fine work

As Mr. Douglas told us in Chapel Mon
day that all of us cannot become an active
member of the Gi’eensboro fire force, but
every one of us can become an honorary
member. By honorary member is meant,
he told us, that we can help, al
though we cannot go out with the
trucks every time we have a fire —
we can do work in a much larger and more
important field. We can prevent fires!
You ask ‘‘How can I prevent a fire?”
‘ ‘ I am going to tell you many
ways,” said Mr. Douglas, “in which
yoii can prevent them. Every one of
you can keep the rubbish—old papers,
rags and the like, cleared out of your at
tics and closets. Many of you have baby
brotliers and sisters who love to play with
matches. This is very dangerous. You
can keep the match box away from the
baby—in fact, you must do it! for baby
does not realize that “the pretty blaze” is
liable to catch the curtains, or table cover
or anything that is liable to be near on
fire, when he persists in striking the match.
But there is still a much larger reason why
baby should not be allowed to have the
matches. He is liable to catch his own
little rompers on fire and probably be in
jured for life—or maybe fatally.
Then matches that are thrown around
carelessly are very dangerous in other
ways. Very often a mouse starts a fire by
igniting a match in this rubbish I just
spoke of. Be careful and do not allow the
matches to get into the mouth of friend
mouse—or maybe I should say “unfriend
ly mouse. ’ ’
Every one of you can persuade your
father to have your chimneys and flues
cleaned or examined at least once a year.
This would be a very great help for a large
per cent, of our fires are caused by defec
Have you ever had an electric light in
your room to “flicker” or “flutter” when
you turn it on? There is probably a loose
connection in the ceiling. This is dan
gerous and often causes a short circuit in
the wires whicli very often causes a fire.
You reply, “I'm not an electrician—how
can I help this? You can persuade your
parent to have your electric wiring in
spected, when your lights seem to go
wrong. Many large fires are caused by
defects in your lighting systems.
I’ve told—or at least re-told you these
things. Y'ou’ve heard every one of them
before—but won’t you please listen and
profit by this? Do your bit! Play the
game! and help prevent fires!
BOOK SHOWER DAY
We’ve heard of it raining pitchforks and
negro babies, but on Wednesday, October
19th, we hope it will rain something bet
ter than these for the school children of
Greensboro. The School Weather Bureau
(School Board) has predicted a shower of
books for this day. The high school pupils
especially will be glad to see this rain be
cause it will bring many new volumes to
the high school library.
The school board has set aside this day
for book showers, when the friends of the
children in school will “shower” the li
brary. A list of the most needed books,
and books of the most interest to the stu
dents has been prepared, from which the
donners are asked to select the book they
will give. The parents may give books in
the name of their children, or in the name
of some child they are particularly inter
It has also been suggested that each
room give one book to the school library.
All books brought in the pupil’s name, and
the books given by the room will be count
ed for that room. The rooms will be in
terested in this, because of the rivalry it
offers. Next month High Life will publish
the rank of the rooms in the contest. The
room giving the greatest number of books
will receive honorable mention.
Books are the most practical gifts that
can be given. Every student is interested
in this Book Shower Day because it will
mark the begimiing of a bigger day of
service for the library. Every High
School student is trying to influence his
parents, his “kinsmen”, and his friends
to send many books to the school on this
day that the shower will flood the High
School, making it necessary for a long
promised building to be built with a spa
cious library, in order to contain the many
volumes, and the rich treasure of a real
High School Library.
