La Lengua Espanola
Es possible que un gran nombre de
Etudiantes Espanoles, en esta es-
cuela, esten tomando Espanol sol-
amente hacer up poco mentstendos
creditos y que no realizen el verda-
dero valor y que no aprecien los
USDS practicales de la lengua..
Hemos oidos, un gran nombrci de
estudiantes digan que tomaran Es
panol el ono que viene porque es
facil. Tate, estudiantes , La Lengua
Espenola no es facil y se no estudia-
ria debajo aquella alucinacion.
Espanol es la lengua de negocio
inteiTiacional entre los. Estados
Unidos y Sur y Raises Clouspee Cen
trales Americanos. El Faberieno de
los Estados Urides se ha hecho un
politica estado Unidor recientemente
a animar negocio entre los continen-
tes del mundo occidental. Europe este
heviendo con fusion y lo no puede a
importador de articulos de Sura-
competer con la epicaz manifactura
Americana asi es propio y natural
que America deberia ser el grande
importador de articulos de Sura-
america y el grande exportador a
consumidores de Suramerica.
Con esta politica en intencion, Es
panol lo entro como un sujeto en
todos universidades y todos colegios
principales en los Estados Unidos.
Anyway you will have to hand it
to the Freshmen, they don’t sing
the “Star-spangled Banner” sitting
Have you noticed how the Fresh
men have been standing by their
Field Day practice ? Means some
how little you really know, and that
you are facing three more years
of hard work before you can say
that you are a Senior.
As for college, we dare not think
of that yet. But perhaps, (we dare
to hope for it) that in the year
1925 three hundred happy seniors
will go as graduates from Greens
boro High School.
We cannot possibly estimate the
value of a high school education
for they are so many and so great.
The test of these values is money
making, compared with the other
values of it.
Now do you know how much it
is worth to you in money-makiftg
in after life for every day spent in
high school? It is worth nine dollars
a day, that is, if you spend your
day in school well.
Next is the pleasure you get in
after life because of an education.
First it helps you ito think better.
The Latin and Algebra teach you to
think things out for yourself and
think them out deeply.
Second: you cannot enjoy music,
art or reading without a high school
education. It is in the high school
that you learn to read well and un
derstand what you are reading.
Another value of a high school ed
ucation is, that you have a good
time while you are going to school.
You enter Athletics where you learn
teamwork which is a main factor in
Fifth:: there is usually a Debating
Club in high school where you can
learn to speak correct English and
speak it fluently. Here again you
learn to co-ioperate with other people.
And lastly, you will know how to
spend your leisure time if you have a
high school education, because it is
the people who have leisure time and
do not know how to spend it who
are criminals. Thus you see a few
of many values of a high school
education and so, for these reasons,
i you should not stop school at the. end
: of the grammar grades, but keep on
' until you finish high school.

use talking THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE TO BUY SHOES

DESIRABLE SCHOOL HABITS

(These five desirable school habits

1. Suppression of all unnecessary
niose between classes.
2. Avoid borrowing.
3. Keep trash off the floor.
4. Avoid all unnecessary inten'up-
5. Do the thing agreed upon by a
majority of the group.
LEST WE FORGET
The Freshmen haven’t been enter
ing chapel as quietly as they might.
They do not fill up the sets. Then,
■some of the last ones have to look
all around for a. place to sit, part
of them finally having to stand. Then,
too, several stand and talk before
the program begins. Besides we
have noticed that some do not give
undivided attention, even working
Algebra while the program is ga*ng
If you want a thing well done, you
should do it yourself. You should
not leave it others. See the Senior^
in The Captain of Plymouth.
The first day of High School is
a glorious one for a Freshman. It
seems that a goal which has long
been sought for, has at last been
reached. You feel more important
than you ever did before in your life.
You walk around with your head
in the air, and your nose turned up,
as much as if to say, “I am it, I
ean't notice you children any more.”
Here are some of the sentiments as
expressed by several members of
the class: Lois Dobson “Even the
wonderful Seniors aren’t in it with
me, you bet!” Alice Carson, “Ain’t
it a g-r-a-n-d and g-l-o-r-i-o-u-s
feeling to be in high school! Andry
Johnson, “I’m simply speechless, and
I felt superior to Mr. Phillips.”
But as the year goes on yeur
feathers gradually begin to fall,
when you realize how green you are.
Now think how much better it
would be to fill in the rows quietly
without talking, stand there facing
the front until we sing or are told
to be seated, and then give undivided
' attention. Remember we have visit
ors nearly every time and they are
1 watching and criticizing us. Let’s
j tuiTi over a new leaf and start again,
j coming into chapel in the right way.
I And say, let’s set the example for
the other classes.
MR. HEWITT IN CHAPEL
March the 30th, Mr. Hewitt ad
dressed the students of the eighth
grade. His subject was, “The Boy
Scouts.” He told of the good work
of the boy scouts, the advantage
to the boys nd why every boy of
age should be a boy scout. It was
proved that the club was for a good
purpose because the scouts ’were
given permission by the governor to
copy so nearly the unifonn of the
United State Soldiers. iThe second
proof was that there were the best
men of the town helping the boys
in their work. Eevery one enjoyed
the talk and every boy wished
that he was a boy scout.
The Freshman baseball team is
fast rounding into shape at the
old show ground ion South Elm
Street under the direction of Coach
The team has played several prac
tice games and shows good ability
for putting out a winning team, not
only in the class series but in other
games. They have several that
they expect to play in the next
few weeks. They not only have
games in town but also have games
with nearby towns which they will
They have plenty of good ma-
erial which looks good for the varsi
ty in future years. The pitching
staff is composed of three promising
pitchers. They are L. Wyrick, Hil!
and McMillian, L. Wyrick is a with-
paw. Hill and McMillian are both
righ handers and have lots of steam
combined with so much stuff that it
keeps all the batters guessing.
Catch Burgess is fast and quick.
He seems to know just what it will
take to make a- batter. He also has
an accurate peg to all the bases.
The infield is composed of Gaint.
Caudle West and Clement. Gaint
at first is fast and a good hitter.
He lets nothing go by him no matter
what. He throws and bats both
with his left hand. Caudle at second
is fast and is dead on auy ball
coming his way. West at short takes
all balls coming his way, no matter
how bad a hop or how hot a ground
he takes them all with care and ha.s
an accurate peg at first both on bases
and infield. At bat he is right there
when the team needs a hit and he is
covering his ground all at once.
In the outfield there is Sharp in
left and is dead on any fly coming his
way and has on arm that will catch
any runner that tries to go home on
him. Sharpe is also a batter that
is feared by the pitcher. In center
Curruthers has posted his sign, he is
a good player in the pinches and
also has a good arm that will catch
any player trying to steal.
Fienn, who is playing right is a
timely hitter, hitting when the
time comes to bring over a nan. He
also can get under balls knocked to
Mr. Roberts of the Greensboro
Chamber of Commerce is going to
organize a Junior Chamber of Com
merce composed of Freshmen.
We do not expect this oi’ganization
to play any part in our Fresmmen
year but expect a great outcome
during our Sophomore year.
Mr. Roberts has often said such
an organization would be a great
help to the Greensboro Chamber of
Commerce in (^aa*rying 'out cam
paigns. Dui’ing the year we have
written to other high schools, all of
which seem to have a Junior Cham
ber of Commerce and w.e have no
wish to be outdone in this enter
prise. A letter which we received
through our civic classes, is pi’inted
below. We. the Freshmen^ thought
this letter vei^ interesting, and hope
that our Junior Chamber of Com-
, merce will benefit us as it has
helped Long Beach High School.

City High School,
Greensboro, N. C.
As president of our Freshman
class, I wish to apologize for not
answering your letter sooner. Owing
to the misplacement of your letter,
our secretary has not been able to
answer all the questions you have
so kindly asked.
Our school has a Poly Civic Gov
ernment, that is, the principal is at
the head and the students have a
Legislative council to make the school
laws and rules. We have a Junior’s
Chamber of Commerce which has
been recognized by the City Chamber
of Commerce. The J. C. C., as we
call it, has given some very good
entertainments, and they have helped
out the school in a financial way
by enabling it to put over a number
We have quite a number of elect
ive courses besides the regular ones,
such as, telegraphy, camp cooking
for the boys, agriculture^ music, and
ai-t. Physical culture, eitlaer military
training or regular “Gym,” is requir
ed of every student physically able to
Long Beach High School has an
enviable athletic record in football,
losing but three games in four years.
We have not lost a water-polo game
in twelve years. But we have not
fared so well in Basketball and
Track, altho’ we had a state champ
ionship basketball team last year. We
have no such associations as you
mentioned, but I think that Long
Beach could take a suggestion from
Gi'eensboro, and organize an athletic
By some queer coincidence, we also
have a school paper by the name
of “High Life,” edited by the print
ing class. We would very much like
a copy of your “High Life.”
We would like to know more about
your city and school, and especially
about your class and of its activities.
We have an assembly room which
seats about twelve hundred and there
is hai'dly a week goes by that we
don’t have at least two assemblies.
These are given by the Girls League
or the J. C. C. Sometimes, at
the beginning of a season or before
a game, Basket-Ball or foot-ball
rallys are held. Then sometimes
we have song rallys also.
Our class has a president, and a
vice president, and a secretary-
We are very sorry about the delay
in answering your letter, and we
hope you will not be offended and
will answer, with another of your
Vei*y truly yours,
’Tis the best time of the whole year,
Flowers are blooming every where,
The shy little violets peep from
their shady nook.
And we hear the murmui'.s of the
The little bii*ds sing all the day,
With joyous songs and gay.
This season comes, but once a year^
And every heart is filled with cheer.

SOMETHING FOR “HIGH LIFE”
“Write something for High Life,
If it is but a trife.”
That is all that I hear,
So I must, oh dear.
But what shall it be
Won’t you please tell me.
Oh yes, I know,
I’ll write it jist so.
Oh! How my brain I have rattled.
And with words I have battled.
But all in vain,
I don’t believe I have a brain.
I never was a poet,
I guess by now you know it,
