ECONOMICS SENIORS SERVE
CALORIC DINNER TO
The study of calories has created
a great deal of interest in the second
year class of Home Economics.
For the past month this class, which
is composed of about twenty Juniurs,
Sophomores and Seniors, has been
studying the exact amount of food
value contained in the various foods
we eat, on the 100 calorie basis.
The class is divided into two
groups. Each of the groups has
adopted an imaginary family and
prepare their menus accordingly.
Some member of the group rep
resents a member ef the imaginary
family. Last Friday the following
menu was prepared by Group 1
(seniors) and served to Group II
Creamed Salmon, Mashed Pota
toes, Iced Slaw, Cornmeal Muffins,
Butter, Ambrosia and Cake.
The dinner, which was the second
to be served in the class, was voted
a success by the entire class. The
class hopes to serve the faculty later
in the year.

What and whence this strange
infection, disproportioning the jaws
and rendering tangled or null the
speech thereof, pervading among
the entire student bodv.
The Seniors of 22 are going to
put out the best Annual this year
that ever enclosed twixt leather
bindings the fame, renown, and
achievements of a senior class and
school. It doesn't take a business
mind to understand that an annual
which will set off to advantage and
future admiration the accomplish
ments of glorious teams and our
scholarlv triumphs will of a neces
sity be very expensive.
To partly defray these expenses
the Annual Staff has under wav a
play which, involving the city's
best talent and that of various city
schools, is going to be the best
local talent play ever staged in
Very soon the Staff is going to
put on sale tickets to “Katcha Koo.”
and “High Life” wishes to take this
opportunity to urge every student
in G. H. S. to buy tickets and to
sell them in the city as though
your lives depend upon the sales
We feel more than justified in
making this appeal, because we
know that every student's pride in
the Senior Class and the Annual
makes them look for opportunities
to help their exalted brothers and
sisters; and futhermore as we
have said before, this is going to
be the best local talent plav ever
staged in Greensboro.
The road to success is a torn,
crooked, rock, strewn highway; along
which throngs of struggling pedestri-
and may be seen with strained ga^
ever, ever ahead, to mark each mile
post passed. A mile post on which
he, who can account himself a
success knows are inscribed the
words self denial.” The hot blasts
of opposition waft back on their
scorching wings, prayers petitioning
always for, accuracy and efficiency,
from those in the van to those who
are less fortunate.
The above picture is probably
painted rather severely, but there
is no use compromising; the only
way to start the journey right is to
face matters squarely and having
begun let each certain failure be
a stepping stone aiding you on to
biggere failures and ultimately to
HAIL YE MUSICIANS
The Commercial Club of the
Greensboro High School held its teg
ular semi-monthly meeting in room
206, Tuesday, Feb. 9. Miss Gladys
Holland, acting as chairman, called
^ the meeting to order. The minutes
' of the last meeting were read by
the secretary, then the reports of
the different committees were heard.
The color flower, and motto com
mittee suggested for the flower,
the violet; the motto, “We mean
business;” and the colors, lavender
and green. These were adopted. The
constitution was read, voted on and
adopted by the club. We feel that
we are now ready to live up to out
motto and put the Commercial couraa
on a “higher plane” in G. H, S.
After this business, Beket spoke to
the club on “Parliamentary Proced-
irre,” after which the meeting ad
With the developing interest of
the business men of this city and the
co-operation of everyone, the Com
mercial Club anticipates great things.
BOYS START A NEW CRAZE BY
IMPROVING THEIR SOLES
There's a new fad in G. H. S.
Believe me! it’s quite the rage.
And fer a wonder it's not the girls
That are models upon the stage.
The boys have found something
And in only a few days
Every gent, spent his last cent
To get the latest craze,
I know you’re dying to find out
Just what the style may be—
Its a pair of shoes, the soul of
Is at least tw'o inches or three!
Poor girls have tried to meet the
And so, upon each ear
Their hair they’ve wound
To deafen the sound
That thev are forced to hear.
SCHOLARSHIP FOR FEBRUARY
After some delay in getting the
orchestra together it has at last
started with hopes and wishes to
become great. At present it is
made up of only string instruments
but it is hoped that it can secure
many wind instruments and also
more string instruments
It may well be remembered last
year how the orchestra played for
chapel and plays and it hopes for
bigger things this year.
Miss Howell and Miss Clemens
will have charge and are going to
make things buzz.
Come on, all ye players of cornets,
bells, clarinets, violins, cellos or
whatever you may play, obtain high
er things and make school life more

Hearts are free and labors cease.
