SNOW COLOR EXPERT TALKS IN CHAPEL PERIOD Study of Life and Works of Isben Begun at First Regular Meeting Last Monday night the senior class headed by Nellie Irvin, who was elected president, organized a drama tic club at the Greensboro High School. The purpose of this club is two fold. First, to enable the members to become better acquainted with the best writers and dramatist, and, to develop their ability to speak in pub lic. A call meeting of the club was held Wednesday, November 30, after school, for the purpose of seeing how many were interested in this move' ment, to organize and to elect officers. About thirty seniors were present, and the following officers were elec ted: President, Nellie Irvin; Vice- President, Edwin Pearce; Secretary, Katherine Grantham; Treasurer, Wil bur Sharpe; Press Reporter, Martha Cox. The club will be under the super- ■ vision of Miss Dorse of the English Department of the High School, and Mr. Blythe of the Lindsay St. School. A committee was appointed to draw up a constitution for the club, and another appointed to prepare pro- ' grams for the regular meetings. The first regular meeting was held Monday night in the High School auditorium at 7 o’clock. At this • meeting were studied the life and works of the Norwegian dramatist, Isben. The following program was ren dered: Talkette—The Life of Isben— Mary Anderson. Paper—The Place of Isben Among Modern Play writers.—Ruth Under wood. The Story of the Doll Flouse Re told—Carlotta Barnes. The Closing Scene of the Doll House—James Wilkins and Frances Harrison. One Act Comedy—Hubert Rawlins and Lucile Wynne. Mr. Blythe favored us by reading an original short comedy on College Life. Indications are that this club has a bright future and will mean much tO' the school.

The cause of their perambulatious was due to a hasty call on Dame Luck. How ever, fate frowned on these wag- erers and young Max and William started on their weary promenade of many weary miles back home. After “trodding” many miles and treading many blisters on their toes a speck of civilization loomed upon the horizon, which proved to be the metropolis of Jamestown, nation ally known for its annual horse-shoe tournament which attracts some of the best of the countryside. These tired and weary pedestrians sojourned just long enough to catch a draught of Si. Perkin’s famous Sody-Pop, and again resumed their tireless journey, reaching their des tination in the wee small hours of the night. On Wedensday night, November, the twenty-third, the “L ’13’s” with a group of their friends met at Elizabeth Chetty’s about eight o’clock, for the purpose of going on a ’possum hunt. Everybody was in good spirits and ready to catch a dozen ’possums. A little after eight o'clock the crowd left Elizabeth’s in three cars. (Here I must not neglect to state that two dogs and a negro guide “Alex” accompanied them) They took the Battle Ground Road and rode out about three miles beyond. Fi nally, they stopped at a cabin to get j a few articles and to leave the j cars, as they had to do the hunt ing by walking. I Then, the fun began. They turned I the dogs loose and waited a few moments, then set out. The only means of light was by one lantern and that was not enough for thirty people. Therefore they were hit in the face by limbs of small trees, caught in briar bushes, and one or two had the bad luck to step in a puddle of water. After tramp ing about two or three miles and not accomplishing anything, the crowd decided they had better go back to the cars and get something i to eat. ; (By-the-way, the negro guide was : most disheartening ;n saying, that ' the crowd was entirely too large and too gay, for trailing a ’pos- i sum). ! With this in mind, the crowd | hiked back to the cars. Here, they j built a large bon-fire and cooked ■ v/einies and toasted marshmallows. I As it was getting along toward morning, the chaperones said the i crowd would have to go home and go ’possum-hunting again. This the crowd agreed to do and firmly , declared they ovould try the hunt again with better success, but they all had floods of fun. “HIGH LIFE.” Miss Gully: (In Latin Class). Dahlia translate the next sentence. Dahlia S: Do you mind if I look up some words? On the afternoon of Wednesday. Nov. 22nd, beautifully clad grid- ironers stepped into the great arena in the White Oak vicinity. One of the teams was headed hy the “wild-eyed” “Jody” Transou, and he called his mates Wild Cats for some reason un known to the public or to any of our highly representative audience. The other eleven followed the thin-head ed Bunny J:larker, who was trying to satisfy his star, Baby Daniel, who was suffering very much with an in growing heel, by a small piece of I stick candy which could have been I used very well as a column for our i school building. Little Daniel was I followed by “Slick Eyed” Hinkle j with his bobbed haired supporters j from Bull Pen. i The two teams ran a few signals I after much fussing over who should I play quarterback and soon stated they were ready to get at each other. Col legiate Purrington acted as dispute settler (also called referee in some struggles) and tooted his jews harp as a signal to start. Mr. Daniels kicked off for the Bulldogs and Wil lie Green of the Wild Cats received I it and made a three yard dash before a necking party spilled him. Little McIntosh tried a few end gallops and Transou seemed to amuse himself with running to the line and hitting j his men in the back with his head. I The spheriod moved up and down ; the field all during the first half with , the fierce Bulldogs keeping the ball I most of the time. Just as the whistle I blew the large crowd simply surged ; upon the grounds. The supporters seemed to have the spirit of the aw ful struggle and were yelling with a\vful force. When the noise had sub sided ard the audience from Elon had come from the field, “Slick Eye” was found lying upon his back with a black eye. Some say' that Lily Green had hit him for not crossing tin desired lime line. But the Bull Pen supporters claimed that “Hink” had swallowed his “Climax” when cut out bv the overgrown “Jedge” A.dams I (the star defensive line man of the I Wild Wild Cats). j The second half started with Mc- ! Iiitosh kicking for the Cats and after the fracas was over Willie Cooper was found to have the ball in his pos session on the forty yard line. Aftei running three times without gaining much, Daniels broke away and ran thirty yards before being overtaken by the fleet-footed Clements. Daniels was then run for eight times, and the last time he hit the line as a thun derbolt, cut a handspring and landed on the other side of the line. He then booted the ball between the twin willows for one more point. Score, Bulldogs 7; Wild Cats 0. The Wild Cats chose to receive and Green caught Daniel’s kick on the thirty yard line. Green, the unsur passed tracked man of the Spring St. Academy for Industrious Young Gen-' llemen, saw two men coming at him | from each side. He did not see how! he could stiff arm both so he threw the ball into the air, stiff-armed both men, caught the ball and ran on only to be overtaken by the sandy-haired Beef Sanders. Transou then called a pass. He threw a pass to Bell who grabbed it as a thunderbolt from mid air and limped across the goal line. There was much rejoicing amid the players, but the spectators were so engaged in watching a fist fight be tween Jimmy McAlister and S^enator Edwin Hale that they knew not wlir.t had happened. McIntosh then tried to kick goal but because of the dark- ! ness he missed it by one ninety- ninth of an inch, and the Cats went down under the Dogs to the tu ;e of 7-6. Daniels, Cooper and Georg'^ Tay lor did exceptionally good work for thunderbolt work of Transou to Bell featured the Fur animal side. Dealt With Harmonizing of Colors In Clothes. The school was entertained Wed., Dec. 7th, in Chapel by Miss Snow, an artist who knows more, probably, tlian anybody else in the U. S. about the co-ordination of colors. Miss Snow’s purpose in the lecture was to help the students to better harmonize the various colors in their clothes and to produce better color schemes or effects in common dec oration and dressing. She produced some wonderful effects by bringing together on a screen various colors and their compliments in the form of long silk draperies. She showed the school the three primary colors and demonstrated by means of her draperies how other colors and their compliments might be produced. The lecture was of much practical value to the whole school in that it gave the students a working knowledge of how to obtain the best results from combining the proper colors in their everyday at tire. INDIVIDUAL REPURT GIVES ALL CHARACTERISTICS OF EACH FOOTBALL WARRIOR HIGH SCHOOL LINE-UP SHOULD CONTAIN SEVERAL ALL STATE MEN, ROOM 4-B ELECTS OFFICERS GIVES AN INTERESTING PLAY , The session room 4-B has orga- j nized and elected officers as follows: I President, Julia King; Vice President, I Mattie Ruth; Secretary and Treasurer Virginia Bain; Critic.

MISS STREETER TALKS IN CHAPEL Monday, Dec. 5.—Miss Streeter, employed by the Victor Company, gave us a very interesting talk in Chapel on “Music Appreciation” and “How to Listen to Music.” She said that Music was composed of rythm, harmony, melody and form. She played several selections on the Victrola to illustrate these different types. She said that what we term “popular music” is really only little more than the rhymth that the sav ages had. She wants us all to learn to appreciate a high class of music. The 1921 football season of G. H. S. has ended. Although it wound up with a stinging 'defeat, the entire school feels that the team as a whole did very good work. Coach Raben- horst had many big holes to fill up but fortunately he found ready mate rial. * * * CLYDE HENDERSON, Right End. Henderson is in every play. He is continually breaking into the oppos ing backfield and messing up their plays. Clyde is one of the best tackles in the state and he fights to the final whistle. + jf * “BUNNY”BARKER “Bunion” is the old reliable. Very few if any get by him, and when he is called for over right tackle, you can always see “Bunny’s” hefty form clearing the way. * * * “VARSITY” FORSYTHE, Right G. “Varse” is a tower of strength in the line. He is in every minute of play and when the opposing team has backed old G. H. S. up to her door, “Varsity” can always be depended on to give the best in him to hold that GEORGE TAYLOR, Center. He is our “fightin’ cap’n.” George is the pep injector of the team. He is in the game every second &nd is al ways spurring his men on and on. When an opposing play is directed toward center, its goose is cooked, for that part of the line is, literally speaking, a brick wall. “WILLIE” GREEN, Left Guard. Rain or shine, snow or blow, “Buck” can always be found hold ing down his position with that dog ged, goodnatured determination that characterizes everything he does. The position to the left of center could be filled no better. » « * “JODY” TRANSOU, Left Tackle. Joseph is without a doubt the best tackle in the state.

Each class is scheduled to play the others and the two cla.sses making the highest percent age play off their fiinal game next Tuesday evening at the Y. M. C. A. —The preliminaries started Monday afternoon with the Seniors defeat ing the Freshmen by 39 to 10. The Varsity Team will begin work immediately after Christmas since many games are scheduled for the season. The inter-class football tourna ment of Greensboro High School has begun; the junior class getting off on a flying start by defeating the seniors in the first game at Cone Pai’k last Friday aftezmoon. Tuesday afternoon at Cone Park the Sophs and Freshies play the in a second game of the series. The winner of this contest play the Juniors Friday at Cone Park for the school pennant. The dope is rather hard to handle due to the scarcity of games played. However, after careful observation of the clubs in practice the odds seem to be in favor of the freshies in both of the remaining games. Clyde Henderson an experienced man on the vai-sity end has succeeded in tuning out a very good machine. They will nevertheless face a hard fighting detennined aggregation when they meet Coach Jody Tran- sou’s Junior Goats. The Soph’s eleven, although it is up to this time an unknown quan tity, should put up a stiff fight under the rigorous handling of Coach Tay lor.
