Tennis Gets Flying Start
Tennis got off to a good start at
the High School last week. Under
the supervision of Coach H. T. Lef-
ler, a tennis tournament for boys
was held, in which several promising
players made their appearance. From
all indications the boy’s team will be
fully as good as last year. It is to
borne in mind that last year’s team
was runner up for the High School
championship of the State. There are
at least half a dozen boys in the High
School who have a good assortment
of strokes and who play the court
In the tournament just held, Bill
Scott won first place. This victory
automatically made him captain for
the coming semester. Other boys
who made places on the team are:
Thomas King, Charles Causey and
Leonard Hole. The second, third and
fourth places have not yet been defin
itely decided. Several good players
are challenging the holders of these
positions for places on the team.
Frank Stone, Clarence Scott, Leonard
Temko, Clement Penn and Earl Bar
ger are the promising challengers.
The hoys who made a good showing
in the tournament, in addition to
those who made the team are: Clem
ent Penn, Leonard Temko, Dick Crab
tree, Earl Barger, Winfield Barney,
Howard Ryder, Jimmie McAlister and
several others. Most of the boys who i
entered the tournament have promise
of making good tennis players.
Twi matches have already been
scheduled for this fall. Guilford Col
lege will be played at Guilford on
Wednesday, October 4, and Burling- i
ton High School will be played in
Greensboro on Friday, October 13.
A match is also pending with Oak
Ridge, the State champions of last
year. It is not known definitely
where this match will be played.
The fall tournament does not de
termine next semester team, as an
other tournament will he played in
the spring. The spring tournament
will give unfortunates another chance
to wield their racquets in behalf of
Greensboro High School.
The Annual Staff held its first
meeting on Thursday, Sept. 28, to dis
cuss plans for the 1922-23 annual.
“Frenzied Finance’’ was the all en
grossing topic. ’The cost of the an
nual must he cut down to half what
it was last year,” says the Parent-
At the meeting of the association
on Wednesday, the annual was dis
cussed, and the parents declared that
it cost too much. Any deficiency in
the funds must be made up by the
seniors, and the parents bear the brunt
of this extra expense.
The staff discussed the matter
thoroughly and decided that plans
could not he completed until the
question of finance was settled.
Accordingly, a committee of three
was appointed to meet the Parent-
Teacher Association, on the follow
ing Thursday, and thrash out the mat
In spite of handicaps, however,
the staff feels that the senior cUiss,
with the cooperation of the student
body, can put out as good an annual
•as the one of last year.
A plan is to l)e worked out where
by the annual will he sold on the
small instalment plan, something
like our athletic association. The
plan will enable more students to
buy annuals, as thev can be sold at
a much lower rate.
Other plans, as yet not matured,
to raise money for the annual, prom
ise good returns.
English Council, New Idea.
May Prove a Good Thing
In Mr. Barton’s two English classes
a new plan is being tried out. In
each class, five pupils are elected hv
popular vote, to serve on an English
The purpose of this English coun
cil is to assist the teacher in his work,
and to put the teacher in touch with
the students and their wishes. A
further and most important purpose
is an endeavor to socialize the class;
or to make the class every one’s and
not his or her’s or the teacher’s class
The council meets about once a
week to solve the general problems.
At this meeting, a schedule of the
month’s \vork is made, also sugges
tions are made by the council for the
amount and the kind of work the
class as a whole desires.
As the plan is still in its infancy,
it is not yet definitely known whether
it will succeed. However, from all
indications, it is going to he a de-1
cided success and will bring the !
teachers and students closer togeth-1
er in their work. i
