Look and see who makes this paper possible by advertising in it, and then
trade with them.
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

school send a telegram to the Disarmament

that get a free ride down the gridiron.

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

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

‘ ‘ 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

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
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.
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.
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.
