FORMER GREENSBORO MAN
One of the most interesting lect-1
ures of hte year was heard Thurs- |
day evening at the opening meeting
of the Chemical-Physical Society
of the high school.
The Chemical-Physical society has |
been organized only a short while
and, since it was keenly felt that |
a good beginning is one of the es- j
sentials of success and since one |
of the big objects of the society is j
to arouse general interest in science,
it was decided to have as the open
ing progi'am a public lecture—the
lecture to be given by a man who
is a well known scientist, who has
received recognition in this realm
and who of course is well able to
fulfill the requirements mentioned
The society was fortunate in se- j
curing Prof. A. H. Patterson for,
this occasion. Prof. Patterson is
a scientist in the true sense of the
word. Being Dean of the school
of Applied Science and head of
the Physics Department of the Uni
versity of North Carolina shows
something of his attainments in this
line. Not only is Professor Patter
son a scientist but those who heard
him will verify the fact that he is
an intensely interesting lecturer and
bis whole being a wonderful dis
play of personality.
The lecture “The Story of the
Stars,” illustrated with lantern slides
and full of interest from beginning
to end, was chosen for this occa
sion because it is a subject in which

tains of both teams. Miss Hornsber-
ger, Miss Dry, the coach of the vis

At the close of the supper songs
Acere started which ended in a yell
Everyone had a splendid time and
left with the hope of soon meeting
again at another such enjoyable en
Miss Summereli and Mr. Barton
were discussing the supply room and
how to get it advertised.
Miss S.: “We really ought to have
some attractvie colored posters. I
Avas just thinking about some of
these girls Avho paint ”
Mr. Barton: ‘*You had a large

Ball aspirants from the champion
ship race of North Carolina on the
Guilford College court, by a score
of 48 to 24.
Although the G. H. S. team lost
the game the players upheld the
high standards of clean- sportman-
ship and gameness for which the
High School stands. They added
to the chain of her fame that will
ever be remembered in hearts and
minds of the loyal students of G. H.
Special credit is due to the Cap-

through this season.
In this game the stellar honors

The High School was exception
ally fortunate on February 26th,
when Dr. Henry Louis Smith, pres
ident of Washington and Lee Uni
versity spoke. He talked in a force
ful, entertaining way about athletics,
showing how the game of football
may be compared to the game of
Dr. Smith based his talk on six
lessons which we must learn before
we can be successful in life.
1. The lesson of the game.
There is always some resisting
force which we must overcome.
2. Lesson of the team.
Loyalty and co-operation should
be cultivated by all.
3. The lesson of the coach.
Raw material, no matter how
strong, can do no good until train
4. The lesson of the training
We must learn to conquer our
selves, before we can overcome any
5. The lesson of the daily grind.
“Practice makes perfect.”
6. The lesson of the bleachers.
Enthusiasm turns work into play.
DEBATNG TEAM CHOSEN
Tuesday night was a red-letter oc
casion in the debater’s calendar, for
it was then that the Varsity Debat
ing Team was chosen. Streams of
oratory could be heard in the halls
for several hours, as the speakers en
deavored to prove their respective
virtues, as debaters. After every
contestant had been heard, the judg
es gave their decision in favor of
Wm. V. Sprinkle, Wm. Neal and
Moulton Avery of the negative and
of Charles Lipscomb, Elizabeth
Simpson and Lucile Boone of the
affirmative. The query. Resolved that
the United States government should
provide for the enforcement of the
decisions of the Railroad Labor
Board, is one which has ample room
for discussion. Tonight the alter
nates will be chosen.
Mr. Jennings: “Now barium gives
a sick looking green, about the color
of “Miss Ogburn’s” SAveater.”
Having to go to chapel twice a
week is bad enough, but a chapel
program in the room on Tuesday is
adding an insult to inquiry especial
ly to those of us who have Chem-

DRAMATIC CLUB TO STAGE
‘ PLAYMAKERS’ PRODUCTION
The play chosen by the G. H. S.
^ Dramatic Club for its annual pro-
' duction is a favorite Avhich the N. C.
[ “Play Makers” have made famous,
j This play “What happened to
j Jones” when given by the Universi-
; ty students was what is slangily
I called a howling success. When
I presenting this play the boys were
' greatly handicapped by a drawback
j which we do not have to face. They
I had no girls. In a play which
I calls for many types of feminine
beauty and ugliness they used boys
and still were successful.
The play is a comedy, full of life
and fun. There isn’t a dull speech
in the whole thing and there isn’t
any tragic acting in it for people in-
experinced in tragedy to blunder
The cast of charcters has been
reassigned since last week and re
hearsals show much pep and prog
ress. The date has been changed to
With the co-operation of the stu
dents this play is going to be as
great a success as it was when pre
sented by the University boys.

STATE A. A. FOR GIRLS
SHOWS GREAT GROWTH
Within one year of the life of the
association organized to provide ath
letic work among the High School
girls of N. C., forty-two schools
have enrolled. In a very hurried
way a District Basketball contest
was operated in the spring of 1922
for about twenty schools largely
interested in that sport. Since that
time the full purpose and plan of
the association has begun to be un
derstood and at present there are
42 schools competing in a basketball
series which is only a part of the
big program as outlined. This pro
gram will be continued this spring
in the promotion of baseball, tennis,
volley ball, field day, and other
events out of doors for girls.
The conference for the East was
held at Wilson under the efficient
guidance of J. S. Bryan, principal of
the Wilson High School. Fifteen
schools were represented and a
satisfactory schedule effected. Seven
teen schools met in Greensboro at
the call of Miss Olive Smith of
Winston-Salem who is serving a sec
ond term as chairman. The cham
pionship will be decided on March
Miss Nellie K. Dry of Concord
called the Western Conference at
Salisbury and ten schools respond
ed. This championship will be
decided on March, 17th.
The officials of the association are
very anxious to have many inquirers
about, the work and the additions
of many schools to the Roll of

The student body had a very
rare treat in chapel on Feb. 19th,
v/hen Miss Dorsett’s room presented
“0. Henry” program, presided over
by Margaret Stveeney.
Marjorie Blair gave a talk on 0.
Henry’s place among short story
writers. William V. Sprinkle told
the story of 0. Henry’s life. This

cause of the speakers original pre
cause of the speakers’ original pre
sentation of it.
. Frances Thomas told briefly one
of 0. Henry’s famous stories, “The
Retrieved Reformation.” Robert Ir
vin, following, delighted his audience
with the song “Jean” in his lovely
tenor voice. Then to our happiness,
Dr. W. P. Beall was intruduced.
He was one of 0. Henry’s most
intimate friends and in his charm
ing manner, he told of 0. Henry
as he knew him. Dr. Beall threw
his audience into peals of laughter
by some of 0. Henry’s anecdotes.
To conclude the program, Dr.
Beall presented the 0. Henry loving
cup, given by Mrs. Justice to Jennie
Mae Fife, the winner of the short
story contest. She wrote “The
Flapper,” a highly creditable story.
PROMOTION AND FAILURE
SUBJECT OF DISCUSSION
AT P. T. A. MEETING
The subject of promotion of high
school students and failure was dis
cussed in full at the meeting yester
day of the High School Parent-
Teacher association with the result
that the meeting was one of the
most interesting the association has
Mrs. John Michaux furnished the
music for the occasion, singing de
lightfully a group of three love
songs. Guy B. Phillips presented
the subject of “Promotion and
Failures” to the mothers present.
Heads of the various departments
of the high school followed his lead
with interesting information; and
each pleaded for co-operation of
parents and teachers in the promo
tion of more careful study on the
part of the students, and therefore,
the material production of percent
age of failures in the school
Mr. Phillips distributed and call
ed attention to neatly type-written
monographs comprising suggestions
helpful to proper study. These, he
said, were not entirely original, but
were recommended by himself.
Miss Jane Summereli made a talk,
urging a closer cooperation and un
derstanding between teachers and
parents of children who fail.
The Senior Latin Club is going to
give a moving picture “The Descent
into Avernus” in chapel Friday,
March 16th. We are all going to
know about the descent into the un-
derAvorld sooner or later, preferably
sooner. Here’s your chance! Don’t
miss it! The admission is a paltry
dime and it’s surely worth your
money to know about the Romans t.,» t n r • ^
