trade with them.

Beware, visitors and students, lest you

Jlr. Brown, head of the Greensboro
Traffic Department, would probably find a
situation worthy of his attention in our
halls during the changing of classes.
Dr. Lindeman would undoubtedly de
scribe the manner in which chapel is en

A few more “play days’’ and the people
of Greensboro might actually realize that
there are school children in the city.
It certainly would be fine if somebody
would start a ‘ ‘ shower ’ ’ that would enlarge
our school buildings as well as fill them.
While the “Parent Teachers’ Associa

Mr. Nantz is now doing a good business.
STUDENT SELF GOVERNMENT
Last year the Seniors failed to take up
student self government, but this year they
have no excuse for not doing it as the class
is composed of the Juniors who last year
We think it would be a big point to the
credit of the class if it would be the first
this year to take up student self govern
ment and not leave it to the Juniors to set
the example that w'e should set to the
TIME TO WAKE UP
We have noticed lately in observing the
students of the school, that when they
reach the tenth and eleventh grades, some
of them suddenly realize, or wake up to
what they are in school for, and begin to
work with a vengeance that astonishes both
their teachers and parents.
What we can’t see is why they wait till
they reach the two last grades or till after
they pass them to come to their realization.
We know that this is an old and worn out
sub,iect, but it is certainly a serious and
It is a safe wager that nine-tenths of the
students in the Greensboro High School
have never given this topic any real
thought. Large numbers of them, if asked
why they come to school, would say be
cause their parents make them.
Students, you are not sent here by your
parents t oplay or to become social lions,
but to prepare yourselves for the game of
life after you leave school. The way you
play the game here, that is the attitude you
•take toward your studies and toward your
studies and toward your fellow students
determines to a great extent the attitude
that you will take toward the game of life

In our opinion it will pay you to investigate our Fall and Winter

when you are through, and the attitude
which you take determines to a great ex
tent the degree of success to which you will
attain. You will sooner or later wake up to
why you are in school and if it is too late
your vain regrets won’t help matters a bit.
We think that you ought to give the mat
ter some serious thought and get down to
some real work.
PLAY THE GAME
You football players, we are for you as
long as yon play the game fair and square,
just as the ,G. H. S. players have always
played it. The spirit of the team this year
has been splendid so far. We are very
glad to recall that a player who was taken
from the field in a certain game in which
we played was taken from the opposing
team and not from ours. We hope that
this spirit of fair play and sportsmanship
will always continue.
Jimmy Forsythe was elected mascot of
the Senior Class at a recent meeting. Jim
my’s popularity is due to his faithful at
tendance of all the school athletic events.
For the services that he has rendered to
the football squad, he was unanimously
elected mascot to the team. The Senior
class thought that any one who had taken
so much interest in the athletic events
would certainly be the proper person for
the office of mascot to the class.
It is needless to mention that Jimmy is
not too large for the position and that he
qualifies in every way physically for this
MRS. LAUGHLIN ILL
Friends of Mrs. Laughlin regret to hear
of her serious illness. She was in the hos
pital when school opened but after three
weeks,. she entered into her work with
much enthusiasm. Last week she was
taken ill again, and on Monday underwent
a serious operation at Wesley-Long Hospi
tal. Friends will be glad to know that she
is improving. We hope she will soon be
back with us again, strong and well.
Daily patrons of the cafeteria will notice
the handsomely painted posters indicating
the kinds of food that we should eat. They
were drawn and painted by our cafeteria
manager, who is a real artist. These post
ers should mean a great deal to us, and
each one should be- a guide as to the selec
tion of nutritious foods. If the posters are
followed carefully a well balanced meal
will be assured each day.
The French Department of our school
was pleased to liave as its visitor this week,
Professor Cahen of Nancy, France. Pro
fessor Cahen is quite an interesting speak
er, being a man of much travel and exper
ience. He sang several songs in French,
some of the most familiar to us were:
“Joan D’Arc,” “Goodbye Broadway, Hel
lo, France,” and “My Country ’Tis of
Tliee”. Professor Cohen delighted the
whole school wit hhis songs and everyone
is looking forward to another promised vis
HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA
RAPIDLY SHAPING UP
At present the orchestra is just a string
orchestra but we are hoping before long to
have many other instruments in it.
Our mothers and fathers have not only
taken interest in the athletic phase of the
school but also the musical fase. They have
promised to secure instruments such as cor
nets, trombones, saxaphones and clarinets
for pupils who are capable of playing. Any
one who feels like he can play and wishes
lo, can get one of these instruments and
take lessons, then when he has learned to
play in the orchestra. This is being done
so as to make it possible for those who want
to, to learn how to play without purchas
ing an instrument.
There is only one practice a week and
that is on Monday. Monday has been chos
en by the present members because it is
most convenient for them.
We are planning great things this year.
We are working very hard to get to the
point wliere we will be able to be at your
service. Tliere are several members who,,
more than likely, from time to time, will
play a solo or in a duet in chapel. The en
tire orchestra will accompany the singing
as soon as possible.
The present members are as follows and
the instruments they play:
1st violin, Ashley Pamplin, Katherine
Grantham, Jack Baxter and Emma Leah
2nd violin, Eleanor Barton and Mai’garet
Cello, Amelia Sternberger.
Piano, Rebecca Ogburn.
So far our neighbors have not complain
ed of our rubbish disposal.
