G. H. S. DEFEATS STRONG
OAK RIDGE TEAM BY
Fowle’s Run Spectacular
The local highs finished the sea
son on their home field by an over
whelming defeat of the strong Oak
Ridge Institute team.
The Institute boys journeyed over
to Greensboro last Friday afternoon
expecting to get into a practice
game, but their expectations were
given a decided jolt by Coach Mc-
Fadden’s husky warriors.
To say that the boys played foot
ball is putting it mildly. Every man
on the Greensboro team was in the
game every minute of play. They
had the spirit, the punch, and the
fight that will make them a team to
be feared when they start into the
G. H. S. scored first in the second
quarter on a forward pass. Swift to
Burroughs. A little later on in the
same period. Oak Ridge scored on a
fake play. Both teams failed at try
for extra point.
Oak Ridge started the second half
with the kick-off, G. H. S. was held
for downs and was forced to punt.
Fred Burrounghs broke through the
Institute line, recovered one of their '
fumbles and ran 40 yards. That put
the ball on the 3-yard line. On the
next play, Wilkins carried the ball,
across. Williams drop-kicked for the
extra point. The next score came
when Oak Ridge fumbled after G.'
H. S. had kicked off. McIntosh car
ried the ball over on a long run
through the line. Williams drop-
kicked for extra point. This ended
the scoring in this quarter.
The last quarter opened with the
home team rushing down the field.
Williams threw a'forward pass that
was grounded I^eyond the goal line.
The ball was brought out to the 20-
yard line and given to Oak Ridge for ■
a first down. Oak Ridge was forced
to punt. McIntosh broke through the
line for ten yards. The G. H. S.
team rushed the ball down the field
and McIntosh again carried the ball
over for the last ton hdown of the'
The whole G. H. S. eleven worked
together and plaved good football,
but if there was an outstanding star,
it Wits "Buster” Swift, who mixed
his plays in such a manner that the

MISS COLEMAN SPEAKS TO
Discusses Foreign Sports
The last meeting of the girls’ Ath
letic Association was made very en
joyable by a talk given by Miss Isa
bel Coleman. Miss Coleman has
just returned from Europe, where she
has made an intensive study of
sports and dances.
In her talk she told us that boys
and girls play the same games the
world over. But the varied settings
make them seem unusual to the ob
One afternoon she watched a game
of soccer ball under the shadows of
an old Athenian temple. A priest
with a long white beard and flowing
robe, refereed the game. Suspended
on the same chain with his silver
cross was a bright new Spalding
whistle. At another time she watched
a game of basket ball played by
young Turkish girls. The equip
ment was kept in a Turkish palace,
and the game was played on a court
that overlooked the Bosphorus.
To be a bull fighter is still the
burning ambition of every small boy
There will be a meeting of
the Parent-Teachers’ Associa
tion Wednesday at 3:45 p. m.
in the high school chapel. Mr.
E. D. Broadhurst will address
the association. All parents
are urged to be present.

Denmark and the Balkan states are
not??d for their expert horsewomen
and Denmark is also noted for the
skill of its women campers. ;
In southern Europe and in eGr-
rnany. the women take very little part
in athletics of any kind. In the for
mer this is due to the footwear of
the women. The shoes are so high-
heeled and short that they cannot
walk with any degree of comfort. In
the latter tlie women are of the la

fall the heaviest burdens. The men

One of the many manifestations
of the public’s interest in our High
School, and one of the most pleasing
of them all, is the offer that comes
from Mrs. R. L. Justice to award a
loving cup to the pupil presenting
the best short story each year, to be
known as the 0. Henry loving cup.
Mrs. Justice is well known and es
teemed in Greensboro, and in the
state at large, for her enthusiastic
support of its club work,- having
served at various times on many of
its leading committees of both social
and literary nature. Therefore, it is
with peculiar fitness that she should
be the first one to champion this
movement for stimulating an interest
in story-writing such as we know this
offer will create, and we feel ex
ceedingly grateful to her for her in
terest in our behalf. May her good
work yield a harvest of results, and
inav Greensboro, as the outcome of
this offer, be blessed with many an
other short story writer whose fame
will equal that of her universally be
loved 0. Henry.
The regulations governing this
contest are as follows:
1. Any G. H. S. student is eligible
to offer a short story for competition
in the 0. Henry Short Story Contest.
2. Each story must be entirely ori-
3. Each story must contain at least
T. A copy of tlie short story must

successive years becomes the owner
of the cup.

Torch Light Society
The Torch Light Society met Nov.
6, after school, for the purpose of;
electing two new students, Marjorie
Blair and Herbert Coe.
The Honor Society now includes
ten members. The eight students
elected last year are: Marjorie Cart-
land, Carmel Ferguson, Kutherine
Gregory. Elizabeth Transou, Nanev
Little, Elizabeth Simpson, Bertha
Ferree and Clinton Jackson.
J'he purpose of the Torch Light
Sor iety is to encourage development
of character, to create enthusiasm for
high scholarship, to promote effec
tive leadership, and to stimulate a
desire to render conspicuous service
among the students.
Students must be in the upper
fourth of scholarship to be eligible
for this society. The election is
based not only on scholarship, but
also on character, effective leader
ship, and service rendered within the
Last year this organization was
merely begun. This year, however,
the Torch Light society is planning
to do big things. An enteresting
chapel program is being planned, to
be given soon, for the purpose of
boosting the societv and its ideals.
TWO NEW LITERARY CLUBS
There is a movement on foot to
organize among the students of the
High School clubs to be know^ as
the 0. Henry and News Writers
clubs. The former will study the
principles of news-writing. Elach
group wil study a manual on the
priniples of the subject it under
takes to master and examine numer
ous specimens of successful short-
stories and news articles. It is the
purpose of these clubs both to dis
cover and develop the talents of the
high school students in the fields un-
dei’ consideration. High Life should
be improved as a result of their ac
tivities, and some embryo Stevenson,
Poe or 0. Henry may be revealed
Membership will be absolutely
voluntary; but no student classified
below semester IV will be allowed to
join. Groupings will be made not
according to scholastic classification,
but according to the neighborhoods
of the students who become mem
bers. Meetings will be held probably
once a month, each being social, en
tertaining and instructive.
Students who are interested are
requested to discuss the matter with
Mr. Barton, and those who desire to
enroll may do so by leaving their
names in his box in the office or by
handing them to Leonard Temko or
