when the whistle blew the score
stood Hi to 2 in lavor of G. hi. S.
in the last half the Bessemer
band came back with a playing
spirit that threatened to override

NEW CAPTAINS CHOSEN
Stynette and Sellars are honored
Due to the old captain being
out of chool, the girls’ basketball
team has chosen Yvonne Styn
ette, better known as “Pete,” to
lead them through the remain
der of the season. The new cap
tain plays the pivot position and
is a player whose skill is ranked
highly by her team mates. Quick
as a cat, Pete never misses a
moment of play. She is always
in the fray and usually she comes
out with the ball in her hand.
So far this girls’ team has not
lost a game, and if everything
goes all right, it looks as though
“Pete” is destined to head the
State Championship team.
Due to the misfortune of Knot
Williams in being unable to con
tinue as captain of the basket
ball squad it was necessary to
elect a new captain to lead the
team for the rest of the season.
Earl Sellers was elected upon
the recommendation of Coach
Park. Sellars is not only a first
class guard but is a real leader
and is the best man possible for
the place. Although the team has
had hard luck In some of the
games thus far it iis ready to
start in on the championship
series and repeat last year’s per
formance inwinning the state

given a pencil and paper and was
told to secure as large a list of
words as possible from the others’

from seeing his back. Miss Mar

the prizes—they were allowed to

banana race in which three blind

three blind-folded girls. The

this ridiculous race were M. C.

DR. PARKER GIVES SPLENDID
TALK TO G. H. S. GIRLS
In a most interesting and in
structive way. Dr. Valeria Par
ker spoke to the girls Friday on
the subject of “The Story of
Life.” She very beautifully
traced the life of living things
from the one-celled plant to the
highest stage of life.
Dr. Parker is universally know
and a very interesting speaker.
She spoke at both the N. C. C.
V\'. and the Greensboro College
on the same subject and her talks
proved to be most successful.
MLLE. PICHOT ADDRESSES
LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
Text books may teach us the
fundamentals of French, but
nothing can teach pronunciation
and the beauty of this musical
Romance language like hearing a
real Frenchmen speak it. It was
with earnest appreciation that
Le Cercle Francais heard Mile.
Pichot at 3:30 February 15. She
lectured so delightfully on
France, and the people and cus
toms there, that the members sat
intensely listening, not only to
the clear information she gave
them in such easy, simple French,
but also to her lovely French ac
cent. Listening to her was an
opportunity and pleasure that
none will forget. Her informa
tion was made more real by her
passing around many post cards
representing the phases of French
life which she discussed.
Mile. Pichot came to North
Carolina College for Women as
an exchange student from France
last September. In addition to
her college work, as a student,
she teaches several French class
es in the college.
To Mile. Pichot, Le Cercle
Francais extends a very hearty
welcome to all its meetings.

Perhaps you have not heard
enough about the Dramatic club
this year to be enthused or excit
ed. Of course you have heard
about “Our Play.” As you know
last year the Dramatic Club gave
a play, which was a great success
It was quite the catch of the
season, and everybody enjoyed it.
This year the Dramatic club is
going to give a play, which will
be “quite the berries.’’ The title
of the play is “What Happened
to Jones.” It is a comedy in three
acts. Full of merriment and fun,
it will make the old as well as
the young cry with laughter.
Of course to form the comedy
we must have comedians. I am
sure you will agree with me when
you see who they are.

GESTS G. H. S. QUINTET
G. H. S. Faculty Wins over
On Thursday night Feb. 8,
Greensboro High School played
Winston High School in perhaps
the most exciting game seen on
a Greensboro Count this season.
Winston secured the big end of
a 20 to 17 score at 7:30 o’clock.
Immediately following this game
on the same floor the Greensboro
faculty won from the Winston
faculty by a 13 to 9 score.
Greensboro seems to be unable
to break her losing streak that
has hung to her since the begin
ning of school but according to
the improvement in the basket
ball team she shows promise of
adding a championship to her

LAST MONDAY NIGHT
Bad Weather Keeps Crowd Away
J. Harvey Burgess played upon
his audience like a musician on
a harp. He carried it first into
gales of laughter and then into
depths of pathos. One moment
his listeners were almost hyster
ical with mirth and the next—
tears stood in their eyes. Thus
did he prove himself an enter
tainer of the first rank.
His opening query, “Where
are my wandering boys tonight?”
seemed very appropriate, for, due
to the inclemency of the weather,
his audience though appreciative,
Mr. Burgess, also known as the
“I-^oet of Ozarks,” was brought
to Greensboro under the auspices
of the Athletic Association. Those
who did not hear this quick wit-
ted humorist missed a rare treat.
The Athletic Association had
hoped to derive considerable fi
nancial aid from this entertain
ment, but their hopes were all
dreams so they will have to re
sort to other methods to gain
their “filthy lucre.”
