PUBLISHED AS A SUPPLEMENT TO HIGH LIFE BY THE CITY SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION
BANNER CLASSES IN PHYSICAL
During February competition in
exercises was strong in grades four
through eight. The classes under
Miss Plowden and Mrs. Park making
the most progress were to receive
a banner for their rooms. When
inspection was made, banners were
awarded to Miss Milner’s 7th grade
in Lindsay and Miss Bouleware’s
7th grade in West Lee. Both grades
do exceptionally fine work. Honor
ary mention was given Miss Bing
ham’s 8th grade in Asheboro and
Mr. Hooper’s 6th grade in West Lee.
At the end of each month inspec
tion will be made and banners
awarded to the classes making the
best demonstration for the month.
HIGH SCHOOL SECOND TEAM
LOSE TO POMONA
Many good hours for basketball
practice have been spent by the
second squad on Wednesdays and
Fridays for the past three months
and some good material has been
developed for the next season. Dur
ing the course five games were
scheduled. The team won two games
from the Faculty and one from
Whitsett by default, and lost one to
Buffalo and one to Pomona.
The season closed March 14th
with the game with Pomona at the

The score at the end of the first
half was 21-8. In the second half
Greensboro played a better guard

WHAT SHALL WE DO ABOUT A SUMMER CAMP?
Spring is here and plans should be made now> if a camp is to be conducted at Hicone this summer.
History of Camp
The camp was first conducted during the summer of 1920, when some ten thousand dollars
worth of equipment was secured, and a Boy Scouts’ Camp was opened during the month of June.
Later in the summer a community camp was conducted.
Last summer, the Scout Organization made other plans, and the season was divided between
camps for boys and camps for girls.
At all times, the Executive Committee has exercised the greatest care in the selection of leaders
for these camps. These leaders have been among the most successful of our teachers and workers
with young people.
The most careful thought has been given to planning a program of activities at each camp in
order that wholesome sports may be indulged in and wholesome ideals may be upheld.
What Experience Has Taught Us
We have made some observations through our three years of experience and believe:
1. That a group of campers should be of approximately the same age.
2. That it is a mistake to try to make boys and girls or their parents take an interest in Camp
Hicone against their will.
Shall we have a camp at Hicone this summer? If so, the Directors must know by April, so that
plans may be made. The Directors feel that the boys and girls and their parents must let their wishes
be known promptly. If a sufficient number, say about sixty, sign up for each of the ten day-
periods, beginning about the first of July, then camp leaders will be secured; if there is no demand,
then the camp will be discontinued. If you are interested, use this
I want a place at Camp Hicone this summer for one period of ten days. I promise my deposit
of one dollar, part payment of the total charge of .$7.50 for the ten day period.

Why I Like High Life
I like High Life because our
teacher writes such interesting pieces
in it. High Life is the most inter
esting paper I have ever seen. I
like the High Life because it has
large print. I like High Life be
cause you can get so many nice
ideas in it.
—Lydia Hay, 5A.
Why I Like High Life
Why I like High Life is because
you can learn the news all over the
world. You can tell where to buy
your best clothes and where to go
to get them. It tells how the
schools work and the schools hand
in many interesting stories. It tells
where the best shows are going to be
at. I think the High Life is
very interesting paper.
—Gordon Barger. 6B.
Why I Like High Life
I like High Life because it is
so interesting. It has poems and
good stories. It has good lives to
read about people. It has about
people who died from serious dis
eases. We also hear about famous
men. I like to hear stories which
other children have written.

One day at the beginning of this
month Mrs. Park came in our room
and told us that she was going to
give a banner to the class which
