North Carolina College for Women
NATIONAL HI-Y ORGANIZATION
The Hi-Y clubs, which are now
a national organization, are under
the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. in
each town. They are made up of
members who belong to the “Y” and
who are in High School, led by
some competent men of the commu
The aim of the Hi-Y is to provide
and establish throughout the school
and community a high standard ot
Christian character, and in this line
it is doing wonderful work.
Almost all the towns with a Y. M.
C. A. in North Carolina have these
Hi-Y clubs. They were started in
this state by Mr. A. N. Cotton, who
interested boys and “Y” directors
in the club.
The Hi-Y pin is a small triangle
with a red border and a white
cross in the center.
-Our Motto—The Five “C’s”

2. Clean Sports—
3. Clean Living—
4. Clean Scholarship—
5. Contagious Christian Charac
These are the things the boy

The Hi-Y Club number wishes
to express to Greensboro High
School its desire to help and sup
port the proposed form of Student
Government. It also believes this
government will be satisfactory to
teachers, students and most of all,
to the school.
This plan of Student government
is not to take the burdens off any
person but it is to make our school
more democratic with certain liber
ties and regulations. This is no
longer to be a school run altogether
by the faculty but a voice, and a
very large one, shall be given over
entirely to the student body not as
a whole but their representatives.
This government of the students,
by the students and most of all for
the students, is based exactly on
the republican form of government:
For our good and also the little
good done ti the faculty this govern
ment should not be allowed to fail.
There is in council now, a committee
composed of two teachers and two
representatives from each of the three
upper classes to write and draw up
laws by which we are to be ruled.
You may ask what this govern
ment will boast as you have heard'
is a boost of clubs, no matter how
a boost of clubs, no matter how
small or how large; of the teams,
both girls and boys; and also of
It is thought largely by the stu
dent-body that this is a government
just to catch you cheating or
doing other acts you know wrong.
This idea is not altogether wrong but
it is certainly not altogether right.
This govrnment stands for the better
ment and protection of property,
yours and the schools, and to do
many things started and not yet
The Hi-Y Club number therefore
wishes to thank these students and
teachers, who have labored night
and day for this government, and
also desires for them to know
that we are backing anything done
for the student form of Co-operative
Government. —Elmer Shelton.

—And gone, for the girls are wear

seen them on some of the boys (and
girls) around the High School.
They are small triangular pins with
a red triangle on them. The name
of the club is on this red band.
In the middle is a white cross which
stands for purity. The red border
is a symbol of of Red Blooded
Service and growth in body, mind,
and spirit. They mean much to the
boys who own them for they are
symbols of all that is good, fine

HISTORY OF HI-Y
The first lli-Y Club was organized
in the spring of 1922 under the su
pervision of Mr. F. R. Casper ‘dad”
of Hi-Y. At first there was only one
club. At present there are two
clubs of twenty boys each. They
all meet once a week at the Y. M. C.
A, for supper and group discussion.
The Hi-Y has done several things
in the past year which may be
listed as follows—
1. It has successfully put on two
FRANK R. CASPER— BEGINNER
Without a duubt the man most
believed by the boys of Greensboro
is Mr. Frank R. Casper. Mr. Cas
per has been interested in boys’
work since he first came to the
city in 1917. His first work with
boys came when he consented to
teach a Sunday School Class and
later when he became leader of a
troop of Boy Scouts.
His work with boys soon attracted
the attention of the business men of
the city and they urged him to ac
cept the position of Boys’ Secretary
at the Young Mens’ Christian As
sociation. He finally consented and
took up his duties at the Y. M. C. A.
Under his leadership the members
of the Boys’ Department steadily
grew. By his untiring efforts and
never ceasing requests new equip
ment, badly needed for many
months, was obtained for the Boys’
Department. He organized Hi-Y
Clubs and the Employed Boys’
Brotherhood. He did not stop
with organization, he attended the
meetings and prepared the meals.
With the help of his numberless new
ideas and his spirit of co-operation
these clubs have accomplished a
part of their aim, “to create, main
tain and extend through out the
school and community high stand

On February 1, Mr. Casper gave
up his post at the Y. M. C. .4.
and resumed new duties with the

Company. But his work with boys
has not ceased. He is always at
the meetings of the Hi-Y Clubs,
always willing and ready to serve

THE BOYS OF HI-Y,
Boys from the High School make
up the Hi-Y. First we find “Skin
ny” Neal president of the club.
“Skinny” is as big as he looks, be
cause he certainly does keep order
at the meetings. Next we have
“Rookie” Little. “Rookie” is little
but he is loud when it comes time
for collecting dues from members.
The secretary has no small job so
kve gave it to a large fellow “Shag”
Irvin. The vice-President has the
laziest job of the club, so we gave
it to “J. Norman” Stone. These
were the only officers that were elect
ed at first but we found that we had
to have one more, the “Official Eat
er”. We had to scout around to
find him. It did not take much
worry, for it was dscovered that
Francis Brooks could eat the most,
^n addition to these we find on the
tablets of clay, Broadus Davidson,
W. C. Coble, “Venus” Ljung,
“Rohhey” Haller, Adam Clements,
Edwin Lashley, Tyre Dillard,
Scrubby” McAlister, William Neal,
Egbert Anderson, Morris Turner,
Troxel Reynolds, Arthur Davant,
Karl Barger, Elmer Shelton, and
last but not leastt we finhd our leader,
Mr. “Charlie” Phillips, who at every
meeting has a message that means
something to each and every boy of
and wholesome.—Adam Clement.
