ably playing its best game' of the

The Freshmen scored first in the
first canto by a double by McCauley,

on a triple by Starling and an error
by the rightfielder. They scored
again in the seventh on a single by
Glass and a double by Starling.
Greensboro got threes in the 2nd and
5th. They crossed once in the 2nd by
2 walks and a sacrifice hit by
Swift, and once in the 5th by a host
of errors by the Carolina third
baseman. After this Herebee tigh-
ened up as did his team mates and
Greensboro failed to score again.
Herebee for Carolina pitched brill
iantly letting Greensboro down with
2 bingles. He sent 12' G. H. S.
warriors back to the bench via the
strike out route and issued only
three free passes. Cooper for
Greensboro also pitched well while
Block for Greensboro got a single
out of two times up. Starling swung
a heavy bludgeon for Carolina con
necting up for a single, double, and

EBESNMEN TO STAGE EATIN
The Freshman clasc is planning to
give a Latin pageant sometime soon.
The pageant is for the purpose of
showing how Latin has helped the
molei’n language, and to awake in
the pupils a greater appreciation of
The whole pageant is dramatized
around the one word duco (meaning
the leadj and its derivatives. It
begins with Mother ducere who re
views the history of Rome from the
beginning to the fall.
The pageant shows its influence
of Latin on the language of our
sister nations by giving us some of
the French, Italian and Spanish
words derived from Latin. Some
of the derivatives iised in the pa
geant are producer, educator, irre
ducible and educible. After the pa
geant the class will sing America

For the first time in the his

the Freshman class has put out
an issue of High Life. It was
not boldness or over-confidence
that made us do it; but simply
tha.t it had not been done before
and we were challenged. This
Freshman issue is our answer.
It may not compare ivith the
work of our elders; it may not
even represent the best that we
are capable of (though much
work has been done, and each
pupil's representation has been
dearly earned) yet it does re

We had more than we could eat,
but we felt that we could sympa

because there was, “Water! water!
everywhere but not a drop to drink.”
Two of the boys finally discovered
a small store where they obtained
a sufficient supply of cold drinks,
which we were all glad to get, for

Our only difficulty on the way
back was crossing the same branch..
Our hero, Rufus Hiatt, climbed up
the bank and began his task of

Detwiler, the first one to be pulled
up was almost to the top when
Rufus’ foot slipped and down she
came, and all the work had to be
done over. One by one we reached
the top in isafety. There it was
Miss Roach’s turn. Extra help was
required for her but she got to the
top at last, thanks to the strong
arms of several of the boys.
Another disaster! One of the boys
ate too much and couldn’t come to
school next day!

Miss Clegg’s fifth period English
class held a very interesting and
lively discussion, Wed. -Apr. 12, on
the subject of the New Station.
The majority of the pupils were
in favor of the station, and brought
up many interesting points. Among
the most important ones were these:
(a) That Greensboro needs the new
station and should take this op
portunity for getting it.
(b) that the Southern is one of the
greatest systems in our country
and that we should not be afraid
to lend them our money.
(c) Labor will be provided for men
(d) A new attractive station will
make a good impression on peo
ple passing through Greensboro,
since a person’s first idea of the
town is gained by the appear
ance of the station. More peo
ple will make their home here.
Opposing points were.
(a) That the Southern is on the
verge of banknjptcy and that
such a loan would be a great
risk on one’s part.
(b) As for providing work for un
employed, quite as much labor
might be used to fix up the
streets and that this would be
more expedient at this time.
Many other interesting points were
brought up and altogether it was
an interesting debate and discussion.

R. D. DOUGLASS ON CITIZENSHIP
Mr. Robert D. Douglass made a
veiy interesting as well as helpful
talk in the auditorium last Tuesday
on Citizenship. He said although
we were not old enough to vote,
we should decide on which side we
would vote if we were allowed to, in
some of the big problems of today
that confronts our country. We
should be interested in such great
things as the Soldier’s Bonus, the
Textile Mill Strike and the Coal
Miner’s Strike, read up on them in
newspapers and current magazines
so we will be well posted. We should
always be informed on both sides
of a question too.
He made the point clear that
it is the duty of every man and
woman to vote and vote intelligently.
His idea was that if one didn’t
vote in one election they shouldn’t
be allowed to vote in the next. We
live in a democracy where govern
ment, is the people. They ought to
be interested enough to make their
Mr. Douglass highly praised the
Civic Department of Greensboro
High School; saying that it was
here that the principles of good
citizenship were learned.
