EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHICS From what can be seen and heard Joe Kelly will surely be captain of this year’s track team. ’Rah for the Seniors; they actually start ed something when they suggested that the school send a telegram to the Disarmament Conference. The more that pile on Daniel the more that get a free ride down the gridiron. AVe see that Durham High School has named her team the Blue Tornado. If names have anything to do with it Durliam ought to deliver the goods. loyal Americans and advocates of future peace to keep abreast of the times; to lend our assistance in ot least thouglit and at tention to the great things which are being accomplished by this conference. The history class in the school has al ready set aside one period a week for the purpose of studying and keeping up with the conference. AVe heartily approve of this step and hope that it will be possible for nvery student in the school to spend at least one period a week in deep concentra tion on this conference. From the attention that the students in chapel give Miss Alorlock you would think that they were accomplished singers. If the piano was transparent it would be possible for the Seniors, who sit behind it, to see the chapel program. The Chatterbox Societies are now meet ing in certain of the study periods. AVell, that’s some better than meeting in the Li brary. At last the much looked-forward to Dis armament Conference is in full swing. The air is full of buzz and hum of disarmament. The eyes of the whole world are turned on AVashington to see whether or not the sword shall be turned into the plow-share; whether or not the coming generation shall be one of war or of peace. History is be ing made in which our country is taking no small part. It behooves all of us as GOOD MANNERS ‘ ‘ The supreme business of the school is to develop a sense of justice, the power of initiative, independence of character, cor rect social and civic habits, and tlie ability to co-operate toward the common good,” said Dr. Frank Crane. A campaign for good manners and con duct is now being planned. AVe hope that through this campaign we shall be able to correct many of our earless habits. The campaign for better speech proved that we could correct our mistakes and by the cam paign for good manners and conduct, we think that we shall correct such things as rudeness in speaking while others are re citing, laughing at the mistakes of others, knocking against people in the hall, talking in the chapel and many other things. Good manners have been taught us in our homes, but we quickly forget when we get out from under home influences. This campaign will be worth while if we will only get in the habit of considering the rights of others and our slogan might be the quotation, “Liberty exists in proportion to wholesome restraint.” BOYS AND GIRLS OF THE CITY SCHOOLS TEACHERSTOO In our opinion it will pay you to investigate our Fall and Winter FOOTWEAR and learn the prices which are just as attractive as the styles... No use talking THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE TO BUY SHOES than J. M. HENDRIX & COAIPANY “THE HOME OF GOOD SHOES” 223 S. Elm Street Greensboo, N. C. There is a movement on foot in school to form an honor society. We understand that tins movement is to promote better scholarship, hipiher character and more service among the students. High Life could do nothing but help and advocate in every way to put this movement across. We sincerely hope that every stu dent will give this society some serious thought and his ai'dent support in adopt ing it. After seeing the spirt that the students of G. II. S. and the team showed last Wed nesday, we feel safe in saying that G. H. S. could not have won a greater victory by defeating Winston or in winning the State championship. Under the severe test of the supreme test the students and team of old G. H. S. did not come up lacking. They showed them selves to be as cheerful losers as winners, and although Winston may cheer and ex ult in every victory over our team G. H. S. has the consolation of a good fight well fought and the heart-sw'elling pride in knowing that as fighters and losers they are second to none. Although you lost the game, we are far prouder of you in knowing that you con tain the stuff which will enable ymu to over come greater adversities than will ever be offered you in a football game. SENIORS HAVE CHARGE OF ARMISTICE DAY PROGRAM On Armistice Day the seniors had charge of the program which was held in chapel at the end of the first two periods. Mrs. Henry Ware, a former , teacher in the schools whom we all love, sang, “The Am ericans Come”, a stirring song admirably suited to her voice. Mr. A. L. Brooks was the speaker of the day. He spoke first of the importance of the day and of what Armistice Day really' means. He paid high tribute to those Americans who fought in the war and spoke especially of those who first went over. He brought out the faet that we can best repay them by' being the very best citizens for school and for our country. He mentioned the Disarma ment Conference and what it means to us and to those men who fought. Mr. Brooks’ talk was short, to the point and interesting. The whole assembly then sang two or three songs after which school was dismissed for the day. THANKSGIVING DAY It was a cold November morning, Just at the break of day That our Pilgrim Forefathers’ ship • Sailed into Massachusetts Bay. Tliey landed without a welcome, They saw only forests in sight, But they had a grand determination To build up a nation of might. They worked, they strove, they builded, They did things we could never do; They builded up this nation For u.s—for me—for you. It w'as not easy, it was not pleasant, Yet they fought out every foe— That we might live in peace and And now .stands this nation—lo! Now we honor and pay homage With one nation-Avide holiday, For these ancient nation-builders AVe celebrate Thanksgiving Day. A\ e can pay no honor grand enough, There is no tribute too Avorthy to pay, So Ave honor them year in, year out. By celebrating Thanksgiving Day. —Ethel Stockton.
