Eead the Ads. They contain valuable
Every one hears of the athletic
heroes, those who go out in the
open and fight for the honors and
high standards of G. H. S. We cheer
them, we praise them, and we try
to back them to the limit. When
they want to put something across,
we are hack of them and pushing.
In spite of our pride and apprecia
tion of their efforts and sacrifices,
athletics do not make the school.
They give the school fame and are
really necessary, hut what do we do
for those who, day after day, and
night after night, work hard for
the things that do not stand out
so brightly? We read High Life
and appreciate and enjoy it. But
we don’t hear much of the staff in
public and we haven’t thought of
cheering them in chapel or even
telling them how much we think of
them. So when we have awakened
to the fact that we are neglecting
them we wish to apologize, and it
is in appreciation of their faithful
efforts that we, the second and
fourth period classes, with the aid
of our beloved teacher, Mr. C.
Phillips, are editing this issue of the
High Life, in order to give the staff
a rest. And in the future we want
them to know that we DO think of
them and will do our best to help
them in every respect.
Twas Easter morn, long, long, ago.
When first the bells were ringing so.

Folks, we’re satifiedl “What Hap
pened to Jones” was the biggest
kind of success. Not only a success
financially but dramatically. We
didn’t dream we had such talent—,
and it took Misses Grogan and
Beckwith to find and bring it out.
They worked hard for us people;
and we want them to know how very
much we appreciate their efforts.
Now comes the season in the year
A en all seems bright and gay.
Winter is a thing of the past and
through the mists we can see the
summer sun shining, dimly, only
waiting its turn after tlie most glo
rious season of the year is over.
This holiday springs not from
the earthly peoples’ wish, but with
a celestial brightness that only the
most High can give to a day of
days. To the people of earth, it
means several things; the death of
the Savior, Jesus Christ, 2000
years ago on the cross on Calvary,
to the heathen it marks the passage
of the old terrible winter and the
arrival of spring, and though they
know nothing of our Savior, a
certain halo seems to overshadow
this day for the peoples of the
earth. Through the medium of re
ligion, they get a glimpse of all that
is good and pure, and with and
through that medium by their ac
tions, they shoulcf show their thank
fulness by their behavior and thank
the Lord for this day of days.
The Senior Short Story Club

iMiss Ferguson was in charge of
the program. Wilbur Daniel Steele

interesting facts were brought out
concerning his works and his life.
Five new inembers joined the club.
The meeting proved to be a very

The Dramatic Club in Chapel
The freshmen and sopomores
spent a very enjoyable fifty minutes
in chapel on March the twenty-
seventh. At this time the Dramatic
Club presented a very delightful
program, consisting of readings and
Reading— The Telephone Ro
Criticism of Plays in New York—
Frances Thomas -
Reading—An Old Sweetheart of
Mine, by James Whitecomb Riley—
Accompanied at the piano by—
Ihe Old Greek Theater—Elizabeth
Theater News of Interest—Regina
The Moscow Art Theater—Eliza
Morris Guest, One of Broadway’s
Famous Men—Lillian Clegg
Edward H. Sothern, Another of
Broadway’s Famous Men—Catherine
The piece that seemed to be liked
the best was “The Telephone Ro
mance” for it was a fine comedy
which proved that although women
can he independent and that they
aren’t afraid of anything, it is
always best to have a man around.
The other pieces although not funny
were enjoyed. They told us of the
most important things happening
in the theatrical world.
From this program could be seen
what splendid things the Dramatic
club is doing and learning.
