Miss Evelyn Martin Run
Over by Ford
Brother ’Possum in Trouble
Miss Evelyn Martin has been miss
ed from school this week, and per
haps some of our readers do not
know wiiy she has been away.
The afternoon that our High
School team played Oxford, Miss
Martin was with the crowd in the
bleachers—and was one of the most
sympathetic onlookers; she being
sure that some of the players would
come out with broken bones. The
team weathered the storm safely—
but in crossing North Elm Street—
right in front of her own home—
Miss Martin was knocked down and
run over by a Ford sedan. She was
carried to Dr. Long’s hospital where
it was found that the injuries con
sisted of a broken collar bone and
severe bruises. While the injuries
were serious enough, and very pain
ful, those who witnesed the accident
say it is a miracle Miss Martin
escaped with her life.
She has been at her home all this
week. After having recovered from
a severe shock to her nerves, she has
shown rapid improvement, and i?
new well on the road to recovery.
The day following the accident,
her most painful perhaps, was made
bright because of the tributes of her
friends in Greensboro, Her room
was a veritable flower garden, with
offerings from the smallest boy in
her clas who pulled his mother’s
chrysanthemums, root and all, and
handed them in at the door—to the
most beautiful roses grown by Van
As High Life goes to press, we
are told that Miss Martin will prob
ably be at work within a week’s time
and we will certainly be glad to
welcome her back to school again.
Last Tuesday night Charles Lips
comb entertained a few of his
friends with a ’possom hunt. The
folks gathered about 7:30 and left
for the Lipscomb farm.
First a big fire was built around
which a camp supper was cooked.
I Al ter everyone had eaten as much
' as he could hold and stuffed his
pockets full of apples and marsh-
mal.ws, ihe crowd started on the
hunt. Everybody was eager and
set. The big chase began over hill
and dale, through briars and woods,
mud and ditches, here and there a
tumble, here and there a rest. After
chasing the noble dogs for some
time, they at last came to the hole,
into which the ’possum had run.
Picks and shovels were gotten and
the boys began to dig. After ex
cavating a part of the woods, what
did they find but a fine young ’pos
sum about the size of a young rat.
My, but the bunch was proud of
that ’possum. It blinked its eyes
a few times and then honored them
all with a famous ’possum grin.
After having the finest time of
their young lives, they decided, as
it was rather late (or early you
may say), to leave for home with
the ’possum comfortably tucked in
Dr. Lipscomb’s pocket.
Those present were: Miriam Ran
kin, Helen Smith, Elzie Fluharty,
Katherine Gregory, Elizabeth Simp
son, Eunice Stamey, Bobbie Wil
kins, Spencer Adams, Charles Cau
sey, Charles Lipscomb, Jimmie Mc
Alister, Farl Sellars, Robert Irvin,
Herman High and Dr. and Mrs.
Gr. H. S. Honors Winston
Saturday night some senior girls
honored the Winston and Green-
boro football teams with a recep
tion held at the Y. W. C. A. hut.
Many games both new and old
weie plaved, and between paiisc.s,
and all during the evening the High
School orchestra and Stringers fur
nished lively music.
Delicious refreshments, consisting
of hot chocolate and sandwiches
were served. After this everyone
left, declaring it to have been a
most enjoyable evening.
The chaperones were: Misses
Gressitt, Summerell, Dorsett, Col
vin, Coleman and Messrs. La Far,
Joyner, Moore, McFadden, Jennings,
Phillips and Wells.

A Story of Palmer Writing
When I began my course in the
7th gi'ade I did not care much for
“Palmer Writing.” When my writ
ing teacher came in the room she
told all of us to do our best all
the year. About the middle of the
first semester I sent off 25 drills
and soon heard I had received a
Palmer button. This made my am
bition grow larger and I soon sent
off 100 drils and found that I was
successful. My teacher told the
whole class to send off 172 drills
and try for a "final certificate.” Ev
ery one got his drills ready and
thev were sent off. I then received
an “Inprovement Certificate.” I
did not want to give up, so I sent
another set of 172 drills. My teach
er, Miss Lucile Sheridan, told me
not to give up, since there was only
a week before school was out, I
spent all of my spare time on my
drills. I sent them off on the last
day of school. Miss Sheridan said
she thought I would receive a cer
tificate this time because they were
l etter than usual. I waited anxiously
all summer and finally gave up
At the beginning of scholl again I
was at the High School. About one
month after school began, a boy
from Asheboro Street School came
in the door and handed my teacher
a long round package.
Miss Martin opened it and said
I had received a “Final Certificate”
for “Palmer Writing.’

Student Help Proves Success
New Prince Rules
l:i this isue we are announcing
that on November the first the cun-
ningest, cooingest, rolly-poliest baby
boy came to rule at the home
of Mr. Phillips and his family. As
vet a name nice enough for him to
bear has not been found, but some
have nicknamed him G. H. S.
It is the spirit of G. H. S. for the
boys and girls, as far as it is possi
ble, to do everything about the school
for themselves. For this reason, in
stead of getting hired help in the li
brary and cafeteria some of the stud
ents have offered their services. In
the library both boys and girls help,
and in this way are getting valuable
training in library work.
It is our ideal to have the cafe
teria as much like the dining room at
home as possible, so we are glad to
see some of our own girls handling
our food. Other girls pick up the
trays as they are laid aside and this
makes the place look neat and clean.
The cafeteria has been better this
year than ever before and we hope
the good work is continued.
Mr. Wells: Has the absolute zero
been discovered yet?
Modine Wilkins: Yes, sir.
Mr. VVells: Where? I never heard
Modine: (sadly) On my card.
Miss Dorsett: Who were Milton
Jack Bray: Milton was the father
of English poetry and Chaucer was,
She: Fve got a cold or something
in my head.
He: Must be a cold. I’m sure.
Student: (translating) The sound
of feasting echoed through the halls.
\oice from the rear: They must
have been eating soup.
Tramp: Have you a good square
meal for a hungry man?
Housewife: Yes, and he’ll be
home at six to eat it.
