The new semester has been
started right. New song books
have been bought for the school,
and we expect to hear strains of
melody falling on the air, at fre
quent entervals. The song books
will fill a long felt need, for the
old ones have long since gone the
way of destruction.
The name of the new acquis-
tion is the “Hymnal for xAmeri-
can Youth,” edited by H. A.
May the lives of these books be
longer than their predecessors.
Chapel is an institution that is
followed for the benefit of the
school as a whole. From time to
timq- outstanding speakers are
brought to us. It is the height of
rudeness to make these visitors
feel the least uncomfortable, by
any look or deed.
Often, unthinkingly, we whis
per to, or nudge our friends. This
is annoying and distracting to
the one who is talking.
So let’s stop doing these child
ish things, and make our Chapel
conduct above reproach.
Boys and girls: On the Streets and
at Public Entertainments.
Every right sort of a boy regards
the friendship of any right sort of
a girl as a privilege. It is some
thing to be won. For this reason
he follows the age-old masculine
prerogative of taking the initiative.
He should, whenever possible, first
seek to know a girl in her home in
order that her parents may be sat
isfied that she will be safe in
his company. Then if a girl has
accepted a boy’s invitation and if
a defininte time for starting has
been agreed upon, it is a matter of
courtesy for a girl to be ready on
At the theater, if an usher shows
a boy and a girl to their seats, the
girl should go ahead of the boy.
If no usher is there, the boy goes
first to find the seats, but when he
reaches the row, he should stand
aside and let the girl pass in ahead
of him. Both should remember that
well-bred people do not talk or
munch candy during the perform
ance of a play.
Upon arriving home, it is not
customary if the hour is late, for the
girl to ask her escort into the house.
It is only common courtesy, how
ever, for her to thank him for
the evening’s entertainment, and to
invite him to call at another time.
He secs hei.' safely inside her home
before he takes his leave.
It seems reasonable that a girl
shoud expect a boy
To raise his hat when greeting
her or parting from her.
To refrain from lounging against
walls or pillars when talking to
To stand when talking to a girl
who is standing.
To walk on the outside, instead
of the inside of the walk, when
escorting a girl, and not to
sandwich himself between two
girls when walking with them.
To avoid Jostling against her, or
grabbing her arm, or other famil
iarity. On the girl’s part, it is ex
tremely bad taste under or
dinary circumstances, to take
a boy’s arm. A boy should not
take a girl’s arm except to assist
her. He may do so when board
ing a car, crossing a crowded
street, or piloting her in a dan
Why all of these despairing groans?
Why all the shaky knees?
It couldn’t be the weather,
Tisn’t cold enough to freeze.
Now what can be the reason?
There must be a special one.
Oh, now I see it plainly:
Mid-term reports have come.
SENIOR ENGLISH CLASSES
On the first day of the new sem
ester the second and sixth pe
riod English classes met and
chose Thelma Floyd and Ruth
James as class chairmen, and David
Thomas and Harvey Liung as
class secretaries. Catherine Cox
was elected reporter of the 2nd
period class. Those elected to
serve on the English coucil were
Bertha Ferree, Lucile Hart, and
Robert Irvin. Those in the sixth
period were Marjorie Cartland, Rutli
James and Katharine Gregory.
It is the aim of these two
classes to work for increased liter
ary knowledge and not for grades

this co-operation between teacher
and class, every one will come to
appreciate and enjoy English more
than ever before.
SPECIAL ANNIVERSY OF
P. G. A. BIRTHDAY
Yes, just so, the word “birthday”
does have its own particular attrac
tions. On February 17th, the Na
tional Congress of Mothers and
Parent-Teacher Association will cel
ebrate its twenty-sixth anniversary.
Lip until that time the phrase “child
welfare” had not been heard of.
With the coining of these words
thousands of children have been

interested in this work. They are
planning a most interesting program
for Friday, February 16th. They
have secured for a speaker for this
occasion Dr. Rankin (W. S.), of
the State Board of Health, Raleigh,
North Carolina, who has done such
an outstanding piece of work in
formulating the Health Program

interesting speaker, and every
mother is urged to be present.
Special music has been arranged
and after the program there will

Cone, Pres. General Council.
