Greensboro Piles Up Terrific Score-
Opponents Unable to Break
Through the Line.
The largest score of the season was
piled up when Greensboro High defeated
Burlington High, Saturday afternoon at
Cone park, by a score of 51 to 0. The
Burlington team, while somewhat crip
pled, put up a stiff tight, but were un
able to cope with the mad rushes of the

GREENSBORO HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL SQUAD—1924 SEASON
Fred Burroughs Freddie
Fred comes first on the Purple Whirl
wind honor roll. After playing a con
sistent and at times brilliant game at
end for three years, he was accorded
the honor of the captaincy. We’re
proud of Fred, and feel that it’s going
to be a hard job to fill his place next
Maurice Turner Maurice
Maurice suhbed last year, but now he
is getting in most every game. He’s
doing a good job, too. Maurice has
not Goodwin’s height, but he makes
up for it with his ever-fighting spirit
and his stick-to-it-iveness.
Vernell Hackney Nick
Last year “Nick” and “Bus” formed a
combination that was a terror to all
comers. This year “Nick” has not
slowed up one particle. Although one
of the smallest men in the backfield,
Nick tears around end like a demon.
With his curly blond locks and quizzi
cal blue eyes, he is one of the best-
liked men on the team.
James Williams Jimmie
Mr. Williams sent a perfectly good
son in to the god of the gridiron and
he only got a quarter-back; but he
got a cracking good one. As a quar
terback Jimmie made a good football
player. He picks his plays with un
canny skill and can carry the ball oc
casionally for good gains. Jimmie is
John Ford Johnnie
Johnnie is a jack-of-all-trades. Equal
ly efficient at guard or half, he is tru
ly “Johnnie-on-the-spot.” He looks
awfully ferocious in a game and other
teams have learned that he not only
looks ferocious but is ferocious.
Franklin Goodwin Frank
Frank is a regular sheik in judging
plays and intercepting forward passes.
He is also a good punter, and never
fails with a good pass from center.
He is in every play and generally gets
Chester Strader Ches
Ches has been out for football for sev
eral years, but before this season he
has not had much of a chance. He
has already been in several games and
is proving himself a real player.
Mead Connelly Flea Bitten
Mead Connelly has been a veteran of
the football team for three years. He
is one of the mainstays in the line;
before the game is very old he has
won the respect of his opponent. It
is hard to tell who makes the bob in
the line, Meade or his grin. If he keeps
on playing like he has been he is sure
to make the all-state team.
James Watson Corn Tassel
The western lad has played some real
football this year. He is most too
rough for the men around here. Wat
son- is expected to be one of the main
stays for next year’s varsity.
James Mans Jimmie
Jimmie is one of the hardest fighters
on the Purple Whirlwind. He is also
good in breaking up punts and in
smashing end runs. When it comes to
receiving forward passes he seems to
have glue on his hands.
Roy Smith — Boy
Roy was injured in the early part of
the season and has been on the side
lines most of the games. Before that
time he starred at half. He’s our best
bet for next year.
Joe Faulkner Joe
Joe’s one of those subs that a team
simply can’t do without. He’s there
every day ready and willing to work.
Quiet and reserved, but always ready
to do or die. Joe has won a place in
the esteem of his fellows.
Willard Watson Watson
Willard comes to us from foreign
lands, but it didn’t take us long to
find out that he is one of the best
little fullbacks in the Old North State.
When Willard hits the line without a
lid protecting his fair tresses, some
times we wonder if he’s coming out in
one piece. He doesn’t seem to worry,
though, he hits the line like a bullet.
Billy Koenig Billy
Billy has played in several positions
and is good almost anywhere. He is
known by his physical appearance and
his star playing. When the end of the
game draws near he is always there
with the goods. Keep on making touch
downs, Billy, you’ll be placed in the

The object of all girlish eyes, showed
his stuff in the last games. Though
Jack was not with us last year, he has
proved himself worthy of belonging to
the G. H. S. team. Keep it up. Jack,
we wish you luck.
Arthur Davant Arthur
When a man is president of the stu
dent council, gets good grades, and is
a first-rate tackle, it’s time to sit up
and take notice. Arthur has done all
of this, and we’re proud he’s a member
of the team.
Lacy Wyrick Lacy
For some unknown reason Lacy hasn’t
been going out for football very long.
He has, however, this year made him
self a place in the line subs. They
couldn’t do without Lacy.
Pete Ogburn — Pete
Pete has been with us a long, long
time. He’s a regular figurehead around
these parts. However, we don’t know
what we’d do without him. Pete has
learned the rudiments of football and
he’s applying them like a veteran.
Adam Clement Adam
Here we find a comparatively new
comer in football circles. Adam broke
into the limelight only recently with
his slashing end runs and his intelli
gent defensive play. We hope he will
keep it up.
James Caudle Jimmie
Jimmie belongs to tbe army of subs
that make up the backbone of a team.
He’s always on hand right when and
where he ought to be. Jim’s a senior.
Phil Shelton Phil
This is Shelton’s first year as a varsity
player. He has proved himself a very
dependable back. He is also a very
good player on the offense and the
defense. He is said to be one of the
best field runners in the state.
Now just listen to what someone said
about our boys at Carolina: “As a group
the Greensboro boys are an honor to
the school they come from.”
The low man seeks a little thing to do,
Sees it and does it;
This high man, with a great thing to
Dies ere he knows it.

Danger to give the best advice to kingS'
On Friday, October 8, order was call
ed by Miss Killingsworth, who compli
mented the school on its honor roll and
expressed her wishes for its increase
every month. Following this there was
a very effective entrance of the gkls
wearing the athletic monograms, led by
Miss Dry, head of the Girls’ Athletic
Association, and Virginia Jackson, pres
ident of the association. The athletes
entered from the rear door of the audi
torium to the strains of “March of the

was introduced by Mr. Gildersleve. A
passage from the Bible was read by Vir
ginia Jackson, and announcements were
The president, in a gracious manner,
introduced the two speakers of the oc
casion. The first of these was Mr. Wil
kins, who is alwmys a favorite with G.
H. S. Mr. Wilkins outlined the plan of
the point system for the girls’ athletic
association, presenting the girls who had
already received the awards.
Mr. York then received hearty ap
plause w'hen he addressed the students
on the value of athletics, stressing the
fact of participation being far better
than observation. He compared the spir
it of the game with future life, since
life itself is a contest for the accom
plishment of great things. Thus he made
evident the relationship between ath
letics and scholarship.
The first camping trip, as a reward
to those 5vho have hiked the required
number of miles, took place Friday-Sat-
urday, November 7-8, at Stewmrt’s mill
pond. “The camp on the hillside above
the pond is ideal in every way,” say the
girls who took advantage of the oppor
tunity to spend the night there.
As soon as the out-of-doors supper
had “settled” the crowd took a ride in
the “Gondola” out on the pond in the
moonlight. Next came the story hour
around the camp fire where, stretched
out on the blankets, with heads together,
they talked until bed-time. After snooz
ing all night a four-mile hike made the
appetites fine for breakfast.
At dinner time the pleasures of roast
ing Irish potatoes in the hot ashes, of
drinking quarts of hot chocolate with
marshmallows swimming around, of eat
ing for the first time the mysterious food
called “heavenly hash”—all these were
enjoyed by the campers.
“Last but not least in importance we
mention the most pleasant association
with the ‘Chaperone’ and the ‘Protec
tor,’ ” said the couple to the reporter.
“Mrs. Ben Williams and Mr. Comer both
proved to be dyed-in-the-wool campers.”
The next camping trip will take place
in about two or three weeks. Since the
ice has been broken, we feel sure that
every girl who qualifies will be there
unless hindered unavoidably. Miss Ran
“Girls, if you hiked 50 miles before
this year, or if you have done 25 miles
since school opened in September, don’t
fail to see Edith Hargrove about the
camp and get in on the very next one,”
