For G. H. S. Hackney, Shelton and
Watson Do Good Work, Adding
Many Points to the Score.
With a series of sweeping end runs
and consistent punting the Purple Whirl
wind trounced the hard fighting Win
ston-Salem High School eleven on Cone
park gridiron Saturday afternoon by
the score of 20 to 10. The Greensboro
eleven showed a complete reversal of
form over last Saturday’s game and
presented an effective rushing attack
around both ends of the opposing line,
scoring the first touchdown on two
sweeping runs in the first minutes of
Goodwin kicked off to Winston, and
the Twins were unable to progress.
Bouie punted 30 yards to Williams, and
on the first play Hackney tore off 30
yards around end. On the next play
Watson went around right end for three
yards and a touchdown. Hackney add
ed the extra point from placement.
The Winston youngsters began to get
aggressive when they got possession of
the ball in mid-field. On four consecu
tive first downs the Winston-Salem team,
led by Harper and Bates, plunged
through the Whirlwind line with relent
less force and planted the ball over the
goal line. Bouie added the extra point
with a drop kick.
The second quarter ended with the
ball in Greensboro’s possession on Win
ston’s 15-yard line. On the first play
in the second quarter Shelton skirted
right end for a touchdown, and Hackney
kicked goal from placement. The Twin
line strengthened after this and no more
scoring was done during the second per
iod. The first half ended with Winston
in charge of the ball on the home team’s
Winston received the ball at the start
of the third period after Greensboro had
fumbled Bouie’s kick on the 25-yard line.
The Twins progressed within two yards
of the goal line, and lost the ball to
Greensboro. After an exchange of punts
in which the visitors gained a slight ad
vantage, the Twins got possession of the
ball on Greensboro’s 20-yard line and
headed for the goal. The Whirlwind
line stiffened under its own goal postSj
and after several vain attempts to break
through, Bouie planted a drop kick neat
ly between the posts from the 25-yard
Greensboro’s last touchdown came in
the final minutes of the game, when
Hackney got away for a 35-yard run
around end. Williams had just punted
out of danger for the Greensboro team,
and a Greensboro player recovered the
punt on the 35-yard line.
The game was cleanly fought, although
many penalties were charged to each
team. The visitors fought every inch of
the way, and put up a plucky fight. For
Greensboro, Hackney, Shelton and Wat
son displayed good form in the back-
field, while Koenig and Captain Bur
roughs stood out in the line. For the
visitors too much praise cannot be heap
ed on the shoulders of Harper and
Bouie. These two men were probably
the outstanding players on the field.
The victory Saturday over the Winston
team is the first the locals have won
in a number of years.

MEET IN TIE CONTEST
Vie With Each Other at Reception—
Coach Johnson is Pres
ent in Spirit.
Greensboro and Winston-Salem met
again Saturday night on the field of
competition. This time there was an
even score—a tie. The gridiron was the
spacious home of Virginia Jackson; the
game, a social one of “hearts.” But it
would be hard to tell who were the in
With about 80 present it was impos
sible to have any planned entertainment,
so formality was thrown to the four
winds and everybody met everybody else.
Immediately the fun began.
Suddenly all conversation was inter
rupted by a violent ringing of the tele
phone. It was Coach Johnson. He sent
his congratulations to the team on win
ning the football game; his regrets that
he could not be at the reception, and his
sincere wish that everybody there would
have a grand time.
All members of both teams took full
.advantage of their “off-training” night
when the ice cream and cake was passed
around. Some admitted that they de-
voirred four plates (meaning, of course,
what was on the plates).
The Winstonites started the ball roll
ing by leaving the crowd and beginning
their journey homeward. Before they
left they urged everybody to come to
Winston for the return game, which is
to be played Saturday week. They de
clared that they had never been to a
football reception that was better, or
where they had had a better time. To
this statement every guest heartily
agreed and Coach Johnson’s telephonic
wish was completely fulfilled.
Among those attending the reception
were Fred Burroughs, Betty Harrison,
Bill Homey, Elizabeth Walters, Edgar
Young, Elizabeth Darling, Elizabeth
Flodgin, Roy Smith, Corrinne Cook,
James Caudle, Garnett Gregory, Ver-
nell Hackney, James Williams, Marga

building on “The Beauty of the Com-
“The rainbow is formed by the sun
light falling through the drops of rain,”
he said. “This results in the exquisite
coloring. There is a beautiful message
in the rainbow as well as in the color,
and that is, the infinite beauty in the
commonplace things of life. See the
beauty,” Dr. Turner urged, “in every
“Poets find beauty in the marshes and
in mud. Mud is composed of sand, soot,
water and clay; but tbe sand is the
amethysts and soot is the diamonds. Also
there is beauty in the water and clay;
for the water is like dewdrops, and sap
phires are made of clay.
“Not only beauty of form but music
and literature are found in the water
and the reeds.
“Deaths and disasters are believed to
be caused by the rainbow by peoj^le who
have a faltering trust in God, but to
others who believe and have an unfal

for us, the rainbow is a promise and a
covenant by which we know there will
be no more floods to cover the earth.”

Pupils, teachers and friends of the
High School have planned an extensive
campaign to raise funds for the pur
chase of instruments for the school or
chestra. The Parent-Teacher Associa
tion will undertake to raise $1,000; mem
bers of the school faculty are jilanning
to stage a benefit play to raise funds,
and later during the year pupils of the
school wdll give an operetta. With the
money thus raised the musical instru
ments wdll be purchased and will remain
the permanent property of the school.
Free instruction will be given by mu
sic teachers employed by tbe city, and
it is planned to make the school orches
tra a permanent organization.
Parents and teachers met for the first
time this year at a reception and meet
ing Friday night in the auditorium of
Central High School. In the receiving
line were Mrs. R. A. Schoonover, presi
dent of the association; Mrs. J. R. Mc-
Clamroch, Mrs. W. R. Stone, Miss Lil
lian Killingsworth, and Mr. Lee Ed
wards. Guests began to arrive at 8
o’clock and each wms tagged at the door
wdth a slip of paper bearing his name.
At 8:30. o’clock everybody gathered
in the auditorium. Mrs. Schoonover pre
sided. The meeting wms ojiened with
a prayer by Mr. R. G. Tuttle. Then
the teachers were introduced by Mrs.
Charles L. Van Noppen. As the names
wmre called each stood up on the plat
form and gave a short resume of his or
her history. It seemed that all the cor
ners of the earth and all the towms not
on the map had representatives on the
teaching force of the Greensboro High
School. When the introductions w-ere
finished the teachers w-ere allowed to
descend from the platform and take
places among the jiarents.
Mrs. W. R. Stone gave a welcoming
sjieech to the teachers in behalf of the
mothers of the association. “Inasmuch
as I am talking to young people I will
talk in the acrostic, and the wmrd which
I shall use is ‘friend,’ because the great
est thing in ^‘his associaCon is friendli-
she said as she began to talk.
MISS CAUSEY INTRODUCES
A NEW SPORT FOR GIRLS
The strength of your life is measured

At its first meeting held Thursday,
September 25, the Girls’ Athletic Coun
cil had an enthusiastic discussion of the
various sports and decided upon the fol
A “point box” will be placed in the
main hall for the rest of the year, so
that different sport heads may have a
better wmy of turning over to the sec
retary the points made by tbe girls.
The third Monday in November, Feb
ruary and May wms decided upon as the
time for the awarding of letters.
Whatever makes men good Christians,

A new^ sport is being introduced into
girls’ athletics this year—hockey, that
mysterious game in wdiich the N. C.
C; W. girls run around a field with a
long curved stick in hand.
To be truthful, no one seems to know
very much about it at Central High ex
cept Miss Causey, w^ho is the head of
the new^ sport. Only two meetings have
been held so far; and at one the pupils
were actually allowed to touch the sa

a copy of the rules.

pleasure, happiness or comfort of any

Faith, respect, interest, encouragement,
need, and dependability were the quali
ties which she said made for perfect
friendship. “We parents have faith in
you teachers; we respect the teaching
profession and we teach our boys and
girls to do the same; naturally we are
interested in you because you give to
our boys and girls what wm parents can
not give. We need you and we depend
upon you.” Mrs. Stone went on to say
that the parents encouraged the teach
ers because “we all thrive best under
Following Mrs. Stone’s address Mr.
Robert Douglass welcomed the teachers
in behalf of the fathers. Mr. Douglass
expressed the appreciation of the fath
ers for the work of the teachers. “You
don’t see as much or hear as much of
us as you do of the mothers, but we are
here nevertheless and wm are cooperat
ing with you to the best of our ability,”
he told the teachers. Mr. Douglass ex
plained what he thought a daddy was.
“A daddy is what makes a boy or girl
less than what he or she should be when
he doesn’t pay attention to him,” he
explained. In conclusion he wished the
teachers God-speed and again assured
them of the help and gratitude of the
daddies of Greensboro.
, Miss Lillian Killingsworth, dean of
girls, then respondeci to the parents’
welcome in behalf of the teachers. “We
on the faculty appreciate the coopera
tion of you parents more than we can
tell you. We want to assure you that
we are grateful, that it enables us to
do our work better, that it makes a
spirit of helpfulness and comradeship
between us. We wish that we might
show our gratitude to you in some way,
so we are inviting you to come visit our
classes at any time. We will be glad
to have you come and see us at our
work.” Miss Killingsworth told about
the work of the schools of Greensboro,
of the pride which all Greensboro has
in them, of the need there is of not be
coming complacent and satisfied with
things as they are. “We have good
schools but we must not feel that we
