ions of living Americans are silently and
fervently paying tribute to those patriots
who surrendered their all for the cause of
Democracy. Greensboro, as a truly Ameri
can community, is observing Armistice
Day in a most fitting manner. The city
schools as parts of the community life, are
■staging appropriate exercises in harmony
with the spirit of the day.
Special programs are being rendered in
the various schools of the city today. Mem
bers of the English department are co
operating with the students in staging a
special Armistice Day programs which have
been correlated with the activities of “Bet
ter Speech Week.” A well-known citizen

One of the unique features of the day’s
program in the city is the spectacular sham

WEEK DOES MUCH
GOOD IN HIGH
Now that “Better Speech Week” has
passed it can be truthfully said that it was
a success in G. H. S. Not only ivas it a suc
cess, but it has left a pleasant impression
upon the minds of many. An impression
that will not soon wear off.
Monday morning an unusual sight met
the eyes of pupils and teachers in the main
building and the annexes. All through the
halls there were posters, little posters and
all kinds of posters. These were work of
the Freshmen, but from the looks of their
posters they don’t seem to be very fresh in
that line of work. All during the day
groups of young people gathered around
the po.sters, discussing and admiring the
great number of varieties.
Tuesday was given over to special pro
grams in the rooms. These were declared
a great success by all who heard them.
Wednesday the Juniors gave in chapel,
for the main building, a play called “The
Magic Voice. ’ ’ This brought out a plea for
“one country, one people, and one lan
guage.” Thursday the play was repeated
for the benefit of the annexes.
The Sophomores’ part in “Better Speech
Week” was enjoyed by everyone. Every
day of that week tags were given to all pu
pils and teachers in the school. Many peo
ple had their tags taken away from them
only a few minutes after they received
them. At the end of the week some people
were privileged to wear five tags, this sig
nifying that they had used no incorrect
English during the week.
Friday-, Armistice Day and North Caro
lina Day-, too, was celebrated by a fine pro
gram, rendered in chapel by the Seniors.
Everyone has agreed that this proved to
be one of the best programs yet rendered
“Better Speech Week” has passed and
some are again in the ruts of carelessness,
nevertheless the effects of days of conscious
concentration are seen and felt on play
ground and in classroom. Bngli.sh Week
for Weak English has brought results.

CHAPEL HILL GAME
GREENSBORO TO MEET
QUEEN CITY BOYS IN
The Purple Whirlwind of Greensboro
High School invades the camp of the Char
lotte High School on Saturday, Nov. 19,
for the first game in the elimination con
test for the scholastic championship in
Western North Carolina.
Both teams go into the contest with a
good record for the season. Tlie Purple
lads probably have the edge in point of
experience and in the showing made this
The playing of the Greensboro Club has
been erratic—two hard games in succession
haven’t been played up to standard form.
The record of the team, however, has been
good. A defeat by Durham and a tie game
with Winston have been more than balanced
by the overwhelming defeat of D. M. I.,
Guilford College Scrubs, Chapel Hill, and
a 7-0 victory over Winston earlier in.the
Charlotte has one of the strongest teams
since the high .school days of “Chuck”
Pharr, and Larry Templeton, when the
Queen City lads were the champs of West
ern North Carolina. The Charlotte aggre
gation has played several hard game^ win
ning them by a good margin.
The Whirlwind, however, .should have no
trouble w-ith the Queen City boys, since the
team will go into the game with no one on
the sick list and with the advantage of a
ten days’ rest.
CLASHES WITH OLD

ITS ANCIENT FOE OFF
FIELD BY OVER-
Locals Wreak Vengeance on Chapel Hill;
Final Score, 28 to 0.
The Purple Whirlwind from the Greens
boro Iligli School, accomplished that which
no other team has been able to accomplish
in tile last two years, namely, defeating
Chapel Hill by the decisive score of 28 to 0,
at Cone Ihtrk, Octob^' 29.
Both teams fought liard all the time,
with Greensboro clearly outplaying her
opponents who did not put out the brand
of football that they have previously. Many
of her best players have passed on to col
lege football and, fconsequently, the ma
jority of the players are green. Neverthe
less, Chapel Hill put up a good fight and
succeeded in holding Greensboro for downs
in the third quarter, on the 12-yd. line.
One notable feature of their defense was
the kicking of Hampton, who .showed great
strength in booting the ball.
Greensboro put up a wonderful game,
with Daniel the moving force of the of
fense. He ploughed through the line,
dashed around the ends and his accurate
passing was responsible for one of his
team’s goals. Daniel’s toe seemed never
to fail him as he kicked all four goals
easily. On the defense Greensboro showed
great strength, never allowing Chapel Hill
to make any consi.stent gains. Captain
Taylor stopped many plays, sharply, which
were directed at him. Jody Transou, our
star tackle, injured his shoulder, which
necessitated his removal from the game,
lie was replaced by Sanders wlio played
his position creditably.
Greensboro scored fir.st in the first quar
ter. Jody Transou intercepted a forward
pass and made a dash for the goal but was
caught by the fast Roberts who downed him
on the twenty-yard line. Chapel Hill
braced and held Greensboro for three downs
but Daniel’s accurate toss to Bell who had
but a few more steps to go, made possible
the touchdown. Daniel kicked goal.
In the second quarter Daniel made his
long, slashing run. Chapel Hill seemed
afraid to tackle his flying legs and he
stiff-armed and dodged liis way through
a broken field for 4.5-yards and scored
He also kicked goal. Greensboro scored
again in the same quarter. The. Purple
and Gold started off with a series of short
gains from the middle of the field, which
w-as followed by a long pass from Daniel
to Bell. Daniel then plowed through the
line for 10-yds, and Paul Transou made
the touchdown by dodging and twisting for
15 yards. Daniel kicked goal.
In the fourth quarter Greensboro got her
deadly delayed buck in action. The first
time the play was used Daniel carried the
ball 7 yards. Then Chapel Hill was pen
alized 15 yards, and, using the same form
ation again, Daniel carried the ball for 30
