It is with pride, somewhat mixed

High School Spirit.
“What does it all mean, this High
School spirit that is always being
talked about,” one freshman was
heard to ask another. Well, from
senior’s standpoint, it means many
inexpressible and intangible things.
First of all it is the whole-heared
honest loyalty to G. H. S. It menas
the giving of one’s very best to make
our school just what each of us would
have it. It is school spirit which
makes us go out to cheer and root
for our teams—both boys and girls
and makes us spend several of our
"off afternoons” working on debates
and dramatics and practicing with the
glee club and orchestra.
This same w'ill ’o the wisp leads us
to conduct ourselves, where ever we
are, so that credit is reflected upon
our school and faculty. It is also
the thing which makes us do our re;
ular school work well, and makes
us ashamed to turn in poor or shoddy
papers. This spirit at G. H. S.
going to mean more to every stud
ent than ever before, and is bein[^
felt not only by us, but by every cit
izen in our citv.
Our “spirit” is a fiery torch that
must be watched with jealous eyes
a!id tended with ready hands, to keep
its light always burning with a steady
glow that will lead us from, the
depths of the valey to the highest
peak of the mountains.

Wednesday morning in chapel, Dr.
Turner, in his usual quiet and unas
suming manner, gave us an interest
ing talk. He read before the student
body a selection from the thirteenth
chapter of II Kings. From this he
chose the timely subject, “The Quit
ter. ’ He told many fitting stories,
bringing out how there was no place
in athletics, life, and especially a
high school, for anyone 4vho quits.
Dr. Turner told the students that
there is a larger game than football,
in which the “quitter” played a large
part, and that was the “game of life.”
In closing Dr. Turner said he
could think »f no more suitable and
appropriate motto for a football
team and a high school than “Hold
on until you find success, and don’t
be a quitter”

Room 202 Wins Scholarship
Launderers and Dry Cleaners
Phones 71 and 72
Wednesday, Oct. 4, Mr. Phillips
announced the winner in the main
building for the scholarship shield
during the month of September.
The lucky room was Miss Grogan’s
No. 202, with the lowest per cent of
failures. Miss Gressett’s room, No.
101, was a close second. i
The number of “A” pupils was
not so large this past month as last ‘
year. The • remark was made that
a pupil that made all “A’s” should
have as much praise and applause ^
as the player on the football field j
who carries the ball over and makes'
a touchdown. But do they get it? |
They do not. Shouldn’t we be just
as proud of this pupil as we are of'
a football player? By all means—;
Come on, boys and girls, let’s show
that we are, and in so doing, try to
join the lucky “A” pupils, who for
September are as follows:
Sophomores—Jack\ Causey, Gar
nett Gregory, Margaret Clegg, Leah|
Bowman, Lucile Sharp.
Juniors—Robert Wilkins, Lucile
Boone, Isabel Cone, Dora Foust, Pat
ty Webb, Katharine Schenck.
