HI-Y HAY RIDE
Saturday night, May 12th, the
members of Hi-Y No. 2 and their
guests enjoyed a very delightful
hay-ride. The group went to
Guilford Battleground. Here a
fire was built, and around its
cheery blaze, ice cream and cake
were served. Then the merry
crowd rode home. There were
two unusual features to this par
ticular hay-ride. One was the de
lightful musical program render
ed by Miss Marjorie Blair and,
last but not least, was the peanut
battle in which IMr. Charles Phil
lips was the chief casualty. Chap
erones were: Miss Ruby Hodgin
and Mr. Charlie Phillips.
A la Gastonia High
A note to the school board.
Dear Public Servants:—
You know you have assured us
that we are to have every possible
convenience in our high school
building. Every enterprise needs an
informer who sees things from the
inside, so, though vou think you
know how to fit up a high school,
there are some minor essentials that
you are likely to overlook, when
gome person like myself reminds
you of a few of them.
1. See to it that there is a pipe
line laid from the soup kitchen to
each room in the building. Either a
rubber tube attachment or a spigot
will serve. This may keep a few
people who are reckless enough to
stand on the cafeteria steps, when
the lunch bell rings, from being
2. By all means provide a beauty
parlor for faculty flappers and high
3. A complete vanity box with
compartments for lipstick, eyebrow
pencil, paint, powder, and a mirror
is an elaborate necessity in each
girl’s desk. These vanities need
not be concealed; girls don’t object
4. Please have concealed in the
walls receptacles from which by
placing a penny in a slot, we may
keep in pocket a constant supply of
5. See that the new erasers are
weighted: they will come much
nearer hitting the mark in battle,
any kind of brushable chalk w'ill
do, but please see that no rulers are
fitted with tin edges.
6. Several of the boys would like
individual waste baskets for banana
peelings. They sometime have to
eat them to dispose of them.
7. Double-decked desks would
supply a long felt need in G. H. S.,
for numbers of the boys have suffer
ed from want of compartments for
adventures of Sherlock Holmes,
Snappy Stories, Life, Judge, etc.
Some of the girls would like the
lower deck as a peanut dispensary.
8. One other item that should not
be annihilated is a limousine, to be
kept at the disposal of some of our
fastidiously inclined, that they may
go up street at recess periods to re
lieve a little of the energy produced
by too much study.
Some of these items may seem to
you to be unessential but, I assure
you that an inspection of this or
any other up-to-date-school will con
vince you of the increasing demands
of civilization. And as Greensboro
High has always boasted of her
progress, you will not wish her to
fall behind in any particular.
Thanking you in advance for sup
plying all our needs, I am,
Yours Very Truly,
—From Gastonia High Magazine.
A kiss, a sigh,
A fond good-bye—
Arid she was gone.
A smile, a curl,
