During the first half Greens

At the beginning of the second
half the game started off with a
bang. The \\ inston bunch of

this meeting was to elect a class
historian. There were three nom
inees for this office. IMiss Isabel
Cone was elected.
As one of the Junior class edi

of that office, on account of her ill
health, a suggestion was made
from the chair, that some one be
nominated to fill the office. There
were three nominees for this off
ice also. Miss Elizabeth Thorn
ton was elected.
Miss Cartland brought before
the class the importance of class
unity in making arrangements
for the Junior-Senior reception.
In order to promote this unity, a
representative from each Junior
room was proposed to form a
committee to decide on commit
tees for the final arrangements
for the reception. The decision of
this committee will be brought
before the class at the next meet
ing, at which time further ar
rangements will be proposed.
The Poetry club held its third
meeting on Thursday night at the
home of Miss Lillian Clegg. At
this time the first regular pro

It consisted of talks, and after
wards a general discussion of the
following subjects: Imagination

and enthusiasm for this Poetry

poet, and it is read aloud to the
other members. After all have
been read one is chosen to be pub

Gull Song” by Mary Carolyn
Davies. It was published, at one
time, in the Saturday I'Evening
Sea Gull Song
My thought are mighty sea-gulls.
Shining out to sea
As white and strong as sea-gulls
As avid of the sea
They rest upon the green waves.
They mount up. one by one.
My thoughts are lordly sea-gulls,
My l)ody stays in bondage
I'pon the shore, I know;
But lazily float the sea-gulls
Like great flakes of snow.
I-azily, float the sea-gulls
Drifting in the blue
My thoughts are bright as sea
Their flight as true.

feat at the hands of the snappy
Mooresville team. The Greens
boro second team started the
game Friday night but were soon
swamped under a 12 to 4 score.

37 to 27 in their favor.
Hartness and Evans jdid the
stellar work for Mooresville, but
the entire team was good.

And when the little kittens came
They all had sweaters on.—Eex.
