FORMER G.H.S. STUDENTS
LINGER LONG IN HALLS
Has Greensboro High School suddenly
acquired a new charm? Is there really
something irresistible about this place,
usually considered by students as being
utterly devoid of anytliing interesting,
charming or fascinating? Perhaps some
person within the school holds the secret
of this magnet; perhaps a teacher (Mr.
Roe is quite popular with the girls, it is
understood) or some pretty blue-eyed
freshman maiden, or yet a big rough
football man. Whatever or whoever it
may be, the fact remains that there is
something here that has a pretty strong
power of attraction, for during the last
few weeks the school has been visited by
a great many of last year’s, and even
It is indeed strange that seniors of
past years, who have been so anxious to
leave High School, so hasty to speak of
the dullness of school life, so important
and self-centered, should be seen gazing
with longing eyes into the classes that
once they only tolerated. From all sides
the cry goes up, from mournful-eyed
girls and boys, “I wish I was coming
back,” or “Oh, you don’t know how I
wish I were going to be over here this
Think of it! They want to come back !
Is it possible that they really mean that
they would like to be going back to
High School? Yes, it is the truth; for
it is very hard, after being an all-su
preme senior, to have to become once
again a humble, ignorant freshman; to
have to be looked down upon when be
fore they have looked down; to have to
look up when they have had people to
look up to them; in fact, it is very hard
lo start from the bottom again.
So fair maidens of the blue eyed,
golden-haired variety, and big boys of
the brown-eyed, black-haired variety,
and teachers who resemble the highest
type of vamp or sheik, take a back seat,
as none of you alone hold the magic
magnet that is drawing those pupils of
old. All of you combined have a slight
influence in causing the return of the
finished; but the thing that draws them
most is what plain every-day people call
homesickness. Our one time joyful, de
fiant, happy-go-lucky seniors have been
tossed out on the cruel sea of life as col
lege freshmen; and, G. H. S., they are
at last really beginning to appreciate
POLICIES AT CHAPEL
New Principal Says Happiness Should
Be Paramount Among Teachers
On T'uesday and Wednesday, Septem
ber 1.5 and l(i, respectively, the first
chajicl programs were lield.
Mr. Pliillii)s asked the ])upils not to
consider tliis as a regular j^rogram, but
just a meeting wliere lie could talk over
new rules and clianges. First he said
that lie wanted the students to be liapjiy
and that the faculty stood ready to give
all possible aid in furthering the hai)})!-
ness of all.
He emifliasi/.ed the fact that pupils
should not enter the building at the ring
ing of the 8:2.5 bell, Imt wait for the
'I’lie difliculty in changing classes w’as
next stressed by the jirincipal. ‘T.oafing
in the halls is the biggest difliculty,’’ he
said. “'I'liree minutes is sufficient time
in which to change classes and there
is no reason why anyone should be trod
den uj)on in the rush,” said Mr. Phil
“Much time and effort has been put
forth in making beautiful lawns in front
of the new building, and it w'ill be great
ly apiireciated if the ]nipils will make
an effort to w'alk on tlie boardwalk which
has been jirovided for that purpose,” he
In conclusion the jirincipal assured
the students that he considered charac
ter-building and doing the right thing
from impulse within the secret of all
liappiness. “I want you all to be happy
and satisfied,” he said, “and in doing
so, I w-ant you to be happy in doing
what is right because you know it is
right—and not because I said so.”

the new faculty members, and the old

nearly enough teachers to accommodate

A mad rush was made for tlie “men
teachers” and they were distributed as

])le insisted that there were not enough
men teaching in Greensboro this year,
while still others remarked tliat men
were miglitj' nice things to have around
the house. T’hese remarks s])eHk very
well for our “men teachers.”
T'lie P. 'P. A. hopes that none of the
Jiew teacliers lost their way after arriv

thing to have some one meet the new

“'I'his year we want to do a little
better in everytliing than we have ever
done before. If High Life has been
good, we want it to be a little better. In
athletics, in dramatics, in deliating, and
in .scholarsliip we want to work a little
harder, go a little farther and accom-

want to stress literary work and scholar-

organized along literary lines: a class in
Creative English, one in Dramatics, and
one in .Tournalism. Our commercial de
