Although the baseball team has
won only 3 out of the 10 games
played, Coach Phillips has confidence
in his team’s ability to play a
better brand of ball. This was
shown by the overwhelmning victo
ry of G. H. S. over Mebane High
School, the last of the eight games.
The tennis progress has been hin

Around the veteran infield and
pitching staff Coach Phillips has
built up his team.
We instinctively believe in char
acter. We admire people who stand
for something, who are centered in
truth and honesty. Chai;acter as ,
capital is very much underestimated
by a great number of young people. .
They seem to put more emphasi.-
upon smartness, shrewdness, lon.q-

G. H. S. MEANS TO WIN
CAROLINA TRACK MEET
Thirteen students have gone to
Chapel Hill with Coach A. L. Pur-
rington as representatives of the
Greensboro high school in the tenth
annual interscholastic track meet to
be held there tomorrow under the
auspices of the bureau of extension
of the University of Carolina.
The local track team will be com
posed of Williams, Wilkins, Cagle,
Bell, Daniel, Thomas, Barker, Har
rison, Koenig, Lashley (captain), Ev
erett, Newell and McIntosh. This
team won second honors at Guilford
college recently, being defeated by
the Burlington cinder path runners.
Coach Purrington stated that the
boys have been practicing hard for
the Chapel Hill events and is positive
that his lads will break some of the
The field events will be held on
Friday morning while the track
events will take place in the after-
■ noon. The school team winning the
greater number of points will be
awarded a cup and the winners of
first and second places in each event
will be awarded medals. The relay
race will not cjunt for points in the
track meet, the winners of this event
being given a' separate cup.
Tlie 220-vard dash and the javelin
throw are innovations in the meet
this year. The local relay team will
be made up of Williams, Cagle,
Everett and Wilkins. Daniels, the
5tar field man of the Greensboro
team will be entered in the javelin
throw, discus, shot put and high
jump. He holds the state scholastic
record for hurling the discus 105
feet. Bell, who holds the state school
record for the mile run, will be en
tered in this event and probably in
the half-mile. In addition to taking
part in the relay, Wilkins will com
pete in. the 220-yard run. Cagle will
be entered in the relay and hurdles,
Thomas, quarter-mile; Barker, shot
put; Harrison, broad jump; Koenig,
quarter-mile; Lashley, 100-yard dash;
Newell, half-mile; McIntosh, javelin
and shot put.

haps through final training this i
morning on the athletic field at the I

other a hot race with Bell the most
probable. Bell is also available for
receiving the “apple” behind the lot.
Captain Green is playing a spec
tacular game at the keystone sack,
covering his territory in fine style.
“Willie” is the dread of all pitchers,
slamming the agate for doubles and
triples and mnning his batting aver
age well above the 500 mark.
A short stop is found in Williams
who, with his fast footwork, covers
his large territory with ease. “Knot”
is the “king of two baggers.”
Cavorting around the “hot corner”
is found Joe Britton, scooping up
the ball with great skill and peg
ging to first with deadly accuracy-
When a sacrifice is needed, Joe
is always called on.
Behind the bat was found “Tink”
(Horace) Lambert, who does the
greater part of the receiving. “Tink”
weilds a wicked willow.
Prancing aix)und the outer garden
are, Swift, Adams and Black. In Swift
is found a promising pitcher, who
has all grades of stuff on the
“pill.” Adams pulls down the flies
that come his way in a manner that
looks good for any seasoned veteran.
“Judge” is walked about every
time he gets up to bat. Block
holds down left field and is on the
job every minute. He is also avail
able for the infield, being an infielder
of good ability.
The pitching staff is composed
mostly of veterans. Oden, Cooper
and Lanier were on the staff last
year and each is showing great
stuff so far Oden is a portsider
while Cooper and Lanier are both
right-handers. Cooper has a fast
ball that fairly smokes and a back
breaking drop. Oden and Lanier
have an assortment of curves, drops
and fast balls that would do credit,
to a big league pitcher. Beside
these veterans Jeff Fordham and
Brat Swift are showing up well on
the hillock, Jeff is a south-paw and
Swift a right hander. As utility :
outfielders are found Blackwood
Wrenn and Earnhardt.
Coach Phillips is confident that

A name is worth everything until ,
it is questioned. But when sus
picion clings to it, it is worth
nothing. There is no policy in all
the world, to say nothing of the
right or wrong of it, that compares
with honesty and square dealing.

GIRLS’ BASE BALL.
There is much enthusiasm over the
girls’ base ball and they have been
doing some good work. A large
number of girls have been going
out for this sport and G. H. S.
is going to have a fine girls’ team.
There are four teams. Freshmen,
Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors.
Each team is under the supervision
of a teacher. Miss C. Stout has
charge of the Freshmen, Miss F.
