‘HIGH'’ LIFE, NOVEMBER 11, 1921
CITY SPRINKLE SETTLES
DUST OF LOCAL GRIDIRON
Norman Cooper, the manager of the
football team, brought into play the re
sources of the city of Greensboro in order
to better the playing conditions of the con
testing gridiron warriors of the Chapel
Hill and Greensboro High Schools.
Owing to the long dry spell that Greens
boro and the surrounding country has suf
fered for the last month or so, Manager
Cooper deemed it wise to prevail upon the
city authorities to b]'ing out their sprink
lers and in this way settle the dust in Cone
Park, which would have obscured the plays
and stopped up the breathing passages of
both players and spectators. This act
showed great foresight and managerial
ability on the part of Mr. Cooper and is
only a speciman of the good work he has
been doing the whole year and which, we
feel sure, he will continue to do.

JUNIOR PRIZE HEALTH ESSAY
“Nor love, nor honor, wealth nor power.

With health all taste of pleasure flies.
We should all try to keep our body ma

To do this, we should follow a few simple
At least eight glasses of water should be
drunk daily, between meals. This is very
essential. Water is of the same importance
inside that it is without. Next to drinking
water, chewing our food is most important.
First, we should be sure that the food is
good food. We ought to eat a variety of
foods, for different foods build up differ
ent parts of our body. Our menu should
be well balanced and well cooked.
Eat what you need, no more. Then we
should chew' our food well. Masticate each
mouthful before you swallow it. This is
the cause of most indigestion.
Very important to our health is exercise
at least twenty-five minutes each day. It
is a fact familiar to all that the heart beats
more violently when -we are exercising than
when we are resting. Exercise in modera

of the body w'here increased oxidation has

FRESHMAN SESSION ROOM
ENJOYS HALLOWE’EN PARTY
On Saturday evening, October 29th, at
the Y. W. C. A. Hut the first of the session
room socials took place when Room 3B met
in a Hallowe’en pai-ty. The boys and girls
were in costume, any adventurous, unusual
dress being deemed suitable for the occa
sion, from Red Riding Hood to the circus
clow'n. There was much fun in guessing
who the masked ones were, especially in the
ease of one who would speak no word. A
number of games directed by Miss Detwiler
(who with Misses Wine and Clegg were
the guest chaperones) was greatly enjoy
The refreshments, cream, apples, cider,
were in true Hallowe’en fashion, even the
favors representing “spooks”.
It was a very enjoyable party and each
guest departing wished that it might soon
