Son banquet, which corresponds to
the annual Father-Son banquet. This
is an accomplishment worthy of
pride, for it is the first organized
lecognition that any G. H. S. club
has given its mothers. Though the
girls often talk about it, they have
not sufficiently stirred themselves to
produce concrete proof of their re
gard for their mothers.
Another big thing which the Hi-
Y club is managing is the Y. M. C.

course it is bringing to Greensboro
worth-while artists and entertain
ers. The first number on the Ly

A Lesson In Loyalty
We sometimes think of the fresh
men as youngsters who are too weak
to accomplish anything. But view
the change which they have wrought
because of their loyalty.
A short while ago they met and
decided that something must be done
to help replentish the treasury of
the Athletic Association. As a gen
esis, everv single member of the
class pledged himself to pay up his
athletic dues. As an exodus, the
class took over the responsibility
of handling the tickets to games, and
furthermore promised to go out in
town and sell them.
This is the sort of spirit that is
making the Freshman class stand
out as a factor in the production of
a better G. H. S.
Every other class would do well
to follow in its footsteps.

One of The Best
Every one is remarking upon the
“pep” and originality of the Hi-Y
club. Composed of the very best
boys in school, it is one of the really
“live wires” around Greensboro. It
is one organization that is always
doing tilings rather than planning
to do things.
One of the best movements which
New Pleasures Every Day
One of the chief pleasures around
G. H. S. is the cafeteria. Not only
does it satisfy our epicurean tastes
but it also meets with the approval
of our eyes and noses.
When one goes there to lunch he
is almost always sure of some sur
prise. On St. Valentine’s Day all
the deserts were either red or white,
and the cakes were in dainty heart
shapes. Also when George Wash
ington’s birthday was being celebra-
ed through out the school, by pa
triotic songs and speeches, the cafete-
dia, dressed itself in gala attire
in honor of the first president. The
posts, walls, and doors were turned
draped and festooned with gay
red, white and blue bunting. The
deserts were decorated with minia
ture flags and colors. And so it is
each day. We find the food always
We appreciate the efforts on the
part of the Cafeteria corps, and we
give thanks with all our hearts.
Poetry Club Meets
The poetry club held its regular
meeting on Monday, February the
nineteenth, at the home of Miss
Alice Thompson on Mclver Street.
The topic discussed at this time
was “Old English Ballads.” The
program consisted of a history of
the origin of the ballad, a study of
its construction, and peculiarities,
and the realizing of several, typify
ing most truly the old type. At the
conclusion of this interesting pro
gram, refreshments were served and
the meeting adjourned.
Mickey O’More was a poor but
ambitious hoy of twelve. He lived
with his mother on the third floor
of a tenament house. He had been
through the grammar grades but
had had to stop and go to work.
One of his highest ambitions was
to make enough money to enable
him to go to high school and
maybe college, all the while keeping
enough in some bank to keep his
Now let us look at another boy,
just Mickey’s age. All the differ
ence in the world is between these
two hoys. This hoy. Terrace Greg
ory, has a wealthy indulgent father
and a weak, society seeking mother.
All of Terry’s young friends are
begging their parents to let them
stop the select grammar school
they had attended for seven years.
This was the beginning of their
high school career. A few of the
parents would not he persuaded,
much to their sons’ chagrin. Others
said it was just as well that they
should stop. So in the end there
were eight boys to stop, among
them, Terry Gregory. His tutor
proposed a trip for the boys so they
all went, with him as an incom
Meanwhile Mickey was working
with zeal to complete his grades for
his future. One night while attend
ing a lecture (he went often) he
heard the speaker say, “My young
friends, if you do not attend
some high school you will never
be able to get and keep a good
job. If you go to high school
you can read and understand your
reading better and thus continue
your education. You caii think
better. Why one tenth of the men
of the United States have been
graduated at high schools and eight
tenths of those are great leaders.
There wasn’t so much need for
schools in the time of Lincoln, Car
negie and Franklin but now there
is a need for them. You don’t
just have to go to college but
you should and must, if possible,
go to high school. There you get
the essentials of business. All doors
are closed to the grammar grade
graduate who has no high school
education. Besides you can’t go to
college. One of the first questions
asked is in regard to your high
school education. You can’t get a
big position. Of course there are
exceptions but these are rare cases,
especially in these modern times.
Then, too, you have more friends,
because nearly all your friends are
your classmates. More good times
are offered you and, last hut not
least, you learn to use your leisure
time. Because nearly all trouble
and ignorance is caused by people
o do not know how to use their
leisure time.” There was more to
liis talk, but that much stayed with
Mickey for many months and helped
to mould his mind for the future.
Nine years have passed. Mickey,
or rather Mr. Michael O’More is
now' the secretary and treasurer of
one of the largest banks in New
York City, while, alas! Terrence
Gregory is a drunkard and a gam
bler in Wall Street. Rapidly losing
his fortune and his standing with
his friends because he lacks a good
education and a good position, he
gives up in despair. The reason
is Terrence stopped school at the
age of twelve in the eighth grade
while Mickey worked, got his high
