GREENSBORO FORCED OUT
OF CHAMPIONSHIP RACE
Leaksville Wins Heart-Breaking Con
test—Extra Period Required
to Break Tie.
Greensboro lost a heart-breaking game
to Leaksville at Chapel Hill Friday night,
February 20, by one point, after playing
an extra five minutes. The score was
22 to 23 at the final whistle. It was a
nip-and-tuck affair from the very first
and was anybody’s game until the last.
Both teams seemed lost on the big
court in the Tin Can. They proceeded
cautiously, each team guarding closely
and shooting at the goal carefully. Good
win for Greensboro began the scoring
early, and the lead then swung from one
to the other until near the end of the
half when I^eaksville took a three point
lead, 12 to 9. When the second half
began, Greensboro fans saw that their
team had changed its tactics from a
passing to a dribbling game, and things
looked good, for Greensboro not only
tied the score but went into the lead,
once by three points.
Near the end of the game Solomon re
placed Wyrick at forward, and C. Scott
\vent in for Blair. Greensboro was lead
ing 20 to 18 at the very end, but a foul
was called and Leaksville increased her
score to 19. Then just as the whistle
blew for the end with Greensboro one
point in the lead, a technical foul was
called and the score was tied.
After a minute’s rest the two teams
started on a five-minute extra period to
decide the championship of group one.
Things began to happen so rapidly that
it was uncomfortable for each side. Wat
son shot a beautiful basket from near
the middle of the floor,—his second of
the game. Goodwin was removed for
fouls, being replaced by Hackney. Leaks
ville shot a foul and things were tense.
With only seconds to play, a Leaksville
man got his hands on the ball and the
game was over, with Greensboro behind
by one point.
GREENSBORO GIRLS DROP A
LOOSE GAME TO CHAPEL HILL
The Greensboro High sextet dropped
a loosely played game to Chapel Hill by
a score of 40 to 9. The G. H. S. girls
were unable to find the basket, while the
Chapel Hill girls displayed an excellent
Giles was main scorer for Chapel Hill,
with her team-mate, Hogan, also respon
sible for many goals. Birdie Rowland
was Greensboro’s high scorer, with five
points. Neal outclassed her teammates
in passing and fine floor work.
LOCALS TROUNCE SALISBURY
DESPITE OPPONENTS’ RALLY
Salisbury Unable to Overcome Greens
boro’s Early Lead—Goodwin
Stars for Locals.
On Friday, February 13, the G. H. S.
basketball team ran wild with Salisbury
on the latter’s court by the score of 18-11.
Salisbury missed numerous chances to
score in the first half. Out of about a
dozen attempts only one was made good.
Greensboro scored twelve times in the
first half while Salisbury caged only one.
The half ended 12-2 in Greensboro’s fa
vor. In the second half Salisbury came
to the front. They not only outplayed
their opponents but outscored them. In
this half Salisbury scored 9 points to
Greensboro’s 6. Gynns was high scorer
for Salisbury, while Goodwin led in the
scoring for the locals. Score by quarters:
Salisbury 0 2 6 3—11
Greensboro 8 4 4 2—18
NEW SPORT AT G. H. S.
Judging from the queer-looking sticks
seen around here some might think that
the girls are either becoming shepherd
esses or carrying forbidden weapons. The
fact is, however, that the formidable-
looking sticks are mere j)lay-things to
be used in the quest of fun.
G. H. S. may proudly boast of this ad
dition to her line of sports. She is the
third high school in the state to own
such equipment — Winston-Salem and
Southern Pines got theirs first. We ex
pect to schedule games with them some
time this spring.
Hockey is one of the most democratic
games in which girls may participate.
It not only gives opportunity to a large
number—22 for each game—but also re
quires the vei’y finest teamwork. No
player shines alone on the hockey field.
Our regular practice days are Monday,
Thursday and Friday. All girls are in
vited to come out and enjoy the fun.
If Willard Watson plays baseball like
he plays football and basketball, then he
won’t have to worry about making the
team in the spring.
Come on, fellows, let’s get together
and give some yells for the team. They
One of the most interested spectators
at the games was Freddie Burroughs.
How everybody missed him since his
absence from the line-up!

Siler City Victims of G. H. S. Offen
sive—Blair, Wyrick and C. Scott
Star for Locals.
The G. H. S. basketeers entered the
state championship race at Caldwell gym
nasium February 16 by easily defeating
the Siler City entry 38-19. The game was
not a thrilling contest, but the crowd of
spectators on hand were given an op
portunity to witness a rejuvenated high
school team sweep all opposition before
it by a steady and well timed passing
Three of the regular Greensboro play
ers were not in the game, but Coach
Park had enough reserve material to
carry on a neat passing game. The
scrubs did not gain their equilibrium in
the first quarter, but with the beginning
of the second period the final outcome
was never in doubt.
Blair and Wyrick led the Greensboro
attack, while Clarence Scott remained
under his goal and protected it single-
handed. The first quarter ended 4 to 1,
but when the half ended Greensboro was
ahead 11 to 7. In the second half the
locals scored a total of 21 points, while
the visitors garnered 12 points.
CAMP TO HICKORY LODGE
Friday, February 20, a party of High
School girls with Mrs. Vanneman and
Miss Carolyn Rankin w'ent to Hickory
Lodge for a night’s outing. “Bobbie”
Wunsch carried the pistol for protection
and Miss Rankin took charge of the food.
The evening hours were spent in sing
ing and playing games in the big “front
room.” At a late hour everybody retired
for a peaceful sleep among the hoot-owls.
Bright and early the folks began to
stir; some to cook breakfast, some to
take an early morning stroll, and others
to hike it for a good appetite. Needless
to say, the bacon and eggs disappeared
as if by magic, and the hot toast did not
The hiking girls hope for another trip
soon with at least 20 girls enjoying the
fun that so few girls participated in this
time. If you don’t believe such a trip
is worth while, just ask Charlotte Van
Noppen, Margaret Hood, Eloise Milton,
Marjorie Vanneman, Donnie Myers, or
If the Durham boys play the game of
life like they pay a game of basketball,
then look out for the city of Durham in
the coming generation.
When the Purple and Gold becomes
state champions, maybe she will show
the Durham and Salisbury teams how
she did it on special request.
