MEMBERS OF FOOTBALL TEAM RECEIVE
MONOGRAMS AND SILVER FOOTBALLS
Mr. Edwards Praises Men in Speech
and Awards Certificates.
HAYWORTH GIVES FOOTBALLS
Coach Johnson, Captains Burroughs
and Watson and Other
Monday morning, December 19, in the
auditorium, the members of the G. H. S.
football squad made their final appear
ance as a unit in 1924, and were awarded
the school monograms and silver foot
balls, given by Mr. Francis Hayworth, a
merchant of this city.
Fred Burroughs, captain of the team,
presided. Arthur Davant conducted the
devotional by giving the scripture lesson
found in the ninth chapter of Corinthi
The captain then expressed the senti
ments of the team in a few crisp words:
“The group you see on the stage is band
ed together, perhaps, for the last time.
We would like to thank the student body
for their loyal support. The spirit which
you have shown has made victories pos
sible and defeat glorious. There will
undoubtedly be a parting of paths, but
not of the spirit of G. H. S.”
Willard Watson, captain of the next
year’s squad, was introduced. Captain
Watson expressed his appreciation to the
squad and to the student body. “I hope
that the alumni with the spirit of ’24
will come back to lend that same whole
“This is the day of all the year,” be
gan Mr. Edwards, “to which everybody
looks forward—the day when ofiicial no
tice is given to organized athletics.” He
then praised the sermon on sportsman
ship and fair play given by Mr. R. Mur
phy Williams on last Sunday. “An Eng
lishman’s code of sportsmanship,” he con
tinued, “is similar to the American in
its basic principles.” Mr. Edwards then
briefly outlined these principles as fol
lows: A sport (1) plays the game for
the sake of the game; (2) plays for his
side and not himself; (3) is a good win
ner and a good loser, is modest in vic
tory and generous in defeat; (4) is un
selfish and always ready to teach others;
(5) when a spectator cheers good plays
or both sides but never interferes with
the referee or players. Mr. Edwards
gave splendid examj^Ies of each rule.
“The first of the three groups which
go to make up a football squad is the
men who have made their letters for the
first time,” said Mr. Edwards. “It gives
me great pleasure to present to these
boys tlieir school monograms.” The boys
receiving letters for the first time were
Roy Smith, luicy Wyrick, Pete Ogburn,
Willard Watson, Phil Shelton, James
Williams, Jack Williman, Norman Stone,
manager, James Caudle, Giles Homey,
Charles West, Lattis Johnson, Willis
Hargrove, Maurice Turner and Arthur
The scrubs then came in for their
share of glory. Mr. Edwards had only
praise for the grit and determination
shown by the boys who go out each day
and then watch the other fellow turn
the trick. Those boys who received hon
orable mention were James Mans, James
Watson, Bill Florney, Ray Henderson,
Adam Clement, Joe Faulkner, Ches.
Strader, Edgar Young, Charles Burgess
and Penn Hunter.
“Then there is that group of veterans
—the men who have striven for even
more than a year, are receiving their
second award.” Those who received stars
vrere John Ford, Frank Goodwin, Mead
Connelly, Bill Koenig, Vernell Hackney
and Fred Burroughs. Fred was placed
on the all-state team.

GIRLS’ VARSITY SQUAD HAS
PROSPECTS FOR GOOD SEASON
Miss Dry Is Coach, Mary Thurman
Captain, and Virginia Jackson
Captain of Team.
Who wouldn’t like to see Battling Babe
charging up and down the floor or Swift
Elzie caging one of the pretty balls, or
old steady Viola playing the best guard
game possible, or Flax, steady and grim
at center ready for the tip-olf, or Cap
tain Webster calm and sure of her team,
and Manager Patty ready for any as
sistance she can give to any teammate?
Who wouldn’t like to see this squad in
action again, three of whom made all-
Six good players gone, but what of
the future team? Well, there’s Mary,
captain of this year’s team, and also a
forward of last year’s team. Mary has
possibilities of developing into another
Elzie and will beyond a doubt make a
valuable forward for this year’s squad.
'I’hen there’s Helen, little, but a sticker
to tbe last man, no matter bow large.
She has had training with the squad
last year and will show up fine this sea
Marion has a good chance for center;
indomitable, a good consistent player,
combining headwork with accurate play
ing. Virginia, manager of this season’s
squad, with practice from last year’s
guarding, ought to bid fair for Babe’s
place. She’ll make it, too.
Maxine hasn’t quite been placed yet.
She has promise of two positions—guard
and forward. Guard will be her posi
tion; she’s a good sticker.
Then from Virginia comes Bertie—
a good forward and earnest worker. The
squad is glad to have her. Edith Neal,
guard, also shows promise.
As a result of class games, new ma
terial has been developed, even beyond
expectation. Marguerite Flarrison, Mary
Tilley, Sadie Clement and Ruth Watson
show fair promise from the Junior team.
The Sophs have a few men to send out,
and even the Freshmen are contributing
to helping the squad.
'i'he outlook is fine,- the schedule is
good. With your help and fine spirit
we hope to have the best squad ever!
G. H. S. recently defeated Summer-
field by the score of 51-12. The game
was a good exhibition of teamwork and
smooth passing. Both teams were strong
on the passing attack but the Summer-
field lads tried too many fancy shots
and threw themselves in all sorts of
uncanny positions before taking aim at
the goal. At first the local team was
bewildered by the unexpected demon
stration, but finally the Greensboro swift
passing began and the forwards began
feeding the ball to Goodwin, wbo roam
ed around under the basket and tipped
in the field goals.
The stars for Greensboro were Good
win and Bill Scott.

WEARING THE “G”
By Coach Johststojt
Letter men of Greensboro High School
wearing their sweaters with the big “G”
gracing it seems to be a, thing of the
past. There are not many boys of G.
H. S., and there are quite a few letter
men of the various sports in the school
not wearing their sweaters. It is an
honor to be a wearer of the “G.” To be
a letter man means he has gone through
the fire of hard work, given his best,
tested his determination, sticking abil
ity, and will power, and last but not
least, given satisfactory evidence of scho
Letter men should be factors in the
school who stand for more than athletics.
The wearers of the “G” should carry to
the students enthusiasm and inspiration
for clean sports and scholarship, and to
the best held in the after-school life,—
the business world.
Wear your sweater graced with the
“G.” Let the students and your friends
know you are a “G” man. Captains of
the various sports should urge the men
who have served under their guidance
to wear their sweaters.
Let the wearers of the “G” lead the
spirit of Greensboro Hi to tbe position
that is won by hard and determined

The Senior girls are keeping their rec
ord clean from defeats. At the Y. W.
C. A. on November 27 they defeated the
Freshman team by 24 points, the score
being 46-22. The game was fast, al
though it lacked excitement, as the score
might - indicate. The Freshm.en played
hard and they played well, but of course
they couldn’t defeat the Seniors!
There weren’t many people on the side
lines; folks, where were you?

are expecting great things of him. Fred
die made a wonderful captain last year
and he is going to make just as many
honors this season as forward. Frank
jumps high as center for old G. H. S.
Where would we be without Frank? Bill
in his calm and unconcerned way gets
his ball and never misses the basket.
Bobby is the stuff'! He jumps around
the floor, takes the ball, and the next
thing you know G. H. S. has scored
again. Willard is a new basketball man
with us this year and we know he is
going to be our coming basketball star.
Arthur Davant, C. Scott, J. AYatson,

first game this year in the class basket
ball series. While both teams showed
improvement in their passing and team
work, the Freshmen proved to be the
stronger. At the end of the first half
the Freshmen had made 13 points while
the Sophomores had only 7 to their
credit. However, in the second half the
Sophomores put up a harder fight, caus
ing the Freshmen no little worry. At the
end of the second half the score was
26-18 in favor of the Freshmen.

It was a beautiful moonlight night.
The young gentleman that had just come
upon the porch was clearly troubled.
Where was she? Could he find her?
His face lit up with animation as he per
ceived her, the object of his visit leaning
against an old gate post. But other
fears assailed him. Was she looking for
him? Yet she gave no sign of it.
He took it upon himself to surprise
her. She turned and with a very indig
nant look at this disturber of her privacy
slowly walked oft’. He followed and
caught up with her. He seized her
around the neck. Neither spoke. She
stood without any attempt to throw off
A voice was heard from the door:
“Hiram, have you got that damn cow?”
“Yes, bring a halter at the gate.”
The Seniors romped all over the Sophs
in a battle staged at the Y. M. C. A. Fri
day afternoon. The work of the Senior
guards was very good, holding their op
ponents to the small end of a 32-0 score.
The winning of the game puts the Senior
team in the finals to be played with the
Juniors at an early date.
