OVER THE TEACUPS
The Girls’ Council held its reg
ular meeting Tuesday afternoon,
January 2, at 3:30, in the cafete
ria. In the absence of the presi
dent, Carlotta Johnson, Thelma
Guldmar Floyd presided.
It was decided that girls’ fo
rum, one Friday chapel period of
each month, would be given over
the girls of the high school for
the purpose of giving every girl
a chance to express her opinion
of things concerning her welfare.
At this time a speaker may be
had to speak of girls’ interests
and anything along that line, but
the girls themselves must feel a
ferfect liberty in expressing their
views, or offering suggestions.
Many people have been won
dering just what this council is
and what it stands for. First of
all, this organization is composed
of one representative from each
session room, two from each
senior room, elected by the girls
of the various rooms.
What does it stand for?—That
is the most important part. It
stands for the CLEANEST,
FINEST, and the BEST things
in a high school girl’s lift. It is the
purpose of this organization, with
the aid of Miss Killingsworth,
dean, to help the girls of the
school, and out of this to make
G. H. S. the best place for them.
It was noticed by everyone that
ear-bobs suddenly disappeared
in popularity among the girls of
G. H. S. The Girls' Council did
this; they decided that they were
over-dressy for school wear and
they told the girls of the school in
a quiet way. Exit the ear-bobs.
Nobody knew who did this. It
is only one of the many things
brought about indirectly by this
The Council does not approve
of any superfluous dress, jewelry,
or cosmetis. It does not approve
of girls going up-street or leav-!
ing the grounds during the school j
without an excuse from the dean.l
In short, these representatives doj
not approve of anything that is
not for the betterment of the high
school girl and when this year is
out, they hope it will be said that
G. H. S. is a better place because!
of its high ideals and its fine girls.

A SECRET MEETING
I, Virgil, was asked to make a
speach to you, but instead Fm
going to tell you about a meeting [
over here last week that probably!
none of you have heard about.
Just as the bell rang at 12 p. m. ,
in the High School one night last I
week there was the slamming of a ’
door, the turning of a key in a lock,'
the snap of a button and —the library 1
was flooded in light! A shabby old !
man entered and closed the door j
after him. He seated himself at a
table took out his watch, and gazed
at it intently for two or three min
utes. Then he said, “H’m 12:05,
time they were coming.” Even as
he spoke two other gentlemen en
tered the room.
“Good evening. Dr. Johnson. Did
we keep you waiting”? Thus spoke
the taller of the newcomers to the
shabby gentleman, and thus he
“Good day, Master Shakespeare,
Master Spencer. No you came just
on time. Know you any other who
The other gentleman, Mr. Spencer,
answered, “Yea, sir, we were told to
await the coming of Milton. Hark!
He comes now”
Milton entered, led by his daugh
ter. After Milton came many others
French, Italian, English, Amerisan
and Roman authors.
Shakespeare, the great English
author, spoke firse, “Friends, you all
know why we’ve come here tonight,
to discuss the momentous ques
tion of the day—Shall we allow
these school children to discuss us
any more? Why only yesterday I
was hurt so badly I could hardly get
liere tonight. One of those hugh
boys over here took me from my
place and slammed me down so
hard on the table that it was with
difficulty that I sustained my injur
“Let me speak, Mr. Shakespeare,”
said Horace, “I quite agree with you.
These pupils should not be allowed
to abuse us the way they do,
its against all the laws of Rome.”
Everybody laughed at this not es
pecially because it was funny but
just because it was Horace.
Said Whittier, “Imagine it, if
thou canst, these scalawags have put
me over next to Carlysle and his
“And they have no respect what
ever for age,” said Milton. “They
throw me around as if I were but
“You are quite right, Mr. Milton,”
said Dante, the great Italian writer,
“why, they hurl me around by my
aged shoulders as if I were twenty.
Victor Hugo then spoke. “Let me
tell you my experience. A girl took
me from my place and began to
read. She read perhaps two pages
and I was getting quit pleased when
she suddenly hurried her head on
shoulder and went to sleep! Ugh!”
“I consider that quite the cream
of the evening,” sang out young
Lord Byron in his clear tenor.
“None of your nonsense, Byron,”
said Ben Jonson, with a frown.
“I think we ought to punish these
unruly pupils in some way,” said
“Ah!” said Byron, “I have it,
let’s tar and feather ’em.”
“No,” said Shakespeare, “we have
no power to do that—we who are
only leather bound volumes in the
day time—but let’s put it up to the
students and see if they couldn’t do
better themselves. I appoint you, Mr.
Virgil, as a committee of one to
tell these school children about our

won’t you try not to disuse us so

THE FOREST OF ARDEN
There is a beautiful place
I love to go.
When the heart is sad
And full of woe.
The trees whisper peace
And sweet content,
Even the streams have a message
As from tleaven sent.
The birds come near,
And T believe understand
That living close to nature
Often makes, a man.
This beautiful forest
W'here I love to rest.
Is The Forest of Arden—
I Oh London yon are blest.
