If the Europeans would just leave
the Turkey question to a few high
high school students they ought to
be able to demolish it, judging from
their Thanksgiving tryuots.

as the Senior rings, we fear it

One of the most humorous ce

Anyway G. H. S. knows how to
take a defeat as well as how to
win a victory.
The trouble with tlie “short sto

they are too short. They ought to
be clased as fabiles or jokes.

True, the plan of the Co-operative
Council will mean that many of
our jelly fishes will be forced to
grow moral backbones. But stiffer
and straighter spines have never yet
proved detrimental to their owners.
The backbone of the school is no
stronger than the backbone of the
weakest student; and if some of
Qur weaklings are strengthened then
much is accomplished.
From the standpoint of the High
Life staff this is one of the largest
and finest movements, in which G.
H. S. has been fortunate enough
to have been involved.
The class of ’23 may well be
proud of the fact that they have
been the first to adopt the co
operative plan. In coming years
they will be proud to remember that
they were tlie first to realize that
the most fruitful results are ob
tained from cooperation.
Many as yet have not come to
see the seniors’ reasons for pro
moting this plan, but we think that
when they have viewed it from
every angle, they too, will do all
their power to make it a success.
The Melting Pot
“And all the people brake off the
golden earrings which were in their
ears, and brought them to Aaron.
And he received them at their hand
and fashioned it with a graven tool,
after he had made it a molten calf.”
Have you ever thought of yourself
as a melting-pot? Each pupil in G.
H. S. will some day go out of the
school either better or worse than
he came in. All the activities in
the school helps to develop us in
different ways. Athletics make us
physically strong; the dramatic club
helps us to express our thoughts
and feelings; the debating club
helps us to speak interestingly on
different subjects; the orchestra and
string band develops our musical
ability; the science club gives us
an opportunity to express our in
dividual ideas about science; the
members of the honor club know
what a spotless reputation they
have to live up to, to hold their
On the other hand, if we pay
too much attention to pleasure which
is, in the long run, destructive, wc
will turn out to be the wrong kind
of citizens. Why can’t we get just
as much happiness out of what is
harmless? If all the good influences
of the school go to make up our
character, just think how much bet
ter we will be when we are grad
uated, than if we hunted for pleas
ure of the wrong sort. Let’s make
use of our opportunities and join,
at least, a few of our school
organizations, so that all the quali
ties that go into our melting-pots
may be good instead of bad.
No matter how many games we
may lose nor how badly we feel
about it. There’s always one thing
to be depending upon—and that is:
the support of the student body.
Although our team was eliminated
by one point from the championship
series on Saturday, Nov. 25, it did
not daunt that peppy bunch who
met the team on its return from
Saturday night, the inhabitants
of the old town thought the near
Eastern question had moved west.
There was the biggest, brightest,
and best bunch of high school
“hopefuls” and teachers down at the
station you ever saw! WTiy, they

to meet the 10:35, which they did
but “their team” was not aboard.
So they waited until the 11:30.
Then the fuss began. When they
saw tfieir team alight, from the train
the fuss those roosters raised, you’d
have thought they had won the
world’s championship! It was great.
Hearty congratulations interspersed
with bloodcurdling yells greeted
the ears of the squad. But prettv
soon, as all were tired and some al
most ready for the hospital, good
nights were said. And we’ll bet
the conclusion of all this were doz
ens of little prayers spoken at
dozens of bedsides, thanking the
Great Scorer for such a team and
such a victory!
HOLD FORTH IN CHAPEL
There are many things in old G.
H. S. besides foot-ball, tennis, and
other athletics, as the students dis
covered in chapel this morning. We
have some budding Paderewski’s
and Caruso’s and Gallci-Curci’s.
To put it in the words of Mr.
Barton, Columbus was not the only
man who has discovered something.
A quartet, which has been at the
school all the time but has never
been discovered before, has at
last came to light. It is composed
of Jenny Lind Penn, Esther Bloxton,
Robert Irvin and William Sprinkle.
It could readily be seen that thev
are making a real quartet when
they sang “The Sweetheart of Sigma
Ki.” Being encored so that they
couldn’t very well get out of it,
they sang another selection equally
as well as the first.
The piano solos were also a
feature of the morning chapel ex
ercises. Those who . played were
Nancy Little, Elizabeth Causey, and
Margaret Barnhardt and Leone
Horton showed plainly that they
were perfectly at home at the piano,
when they played a very pretty
duet. This is only the first of
the musical programs which are
going to be put on in chapel this
year. Now that the students have
heard the first one they are anxious
ly waiting for the next.
