Mary McLeod writes from Randolph-

would like to be there, even though this
place is wonderful.”
We are proud to know that Eleanor
Vanneman, one of our own G. H. S.

G. H. S. are Wilhelmina Weiland and

The chapel program Monday, Sep
tember 28, was opened with two songs,
“The Toreador Song” and “The Little
Irish Girl,” sung by Mr. Gildersleeve,
who was accompanied by Miss Eliza
beth Causey. Dr. Turner, of the First
Baptist church, held the devotional exer
cise. The keynote of his talk was “Fi
delity.” He told the story of “Old
Faithful” geyser at Yellowstone Park.
“This geyser,” said Dr. Turner, “hurls
water 150 feet into the air every 70
minutes without a moment’s loss.” Con
tinuing, he said, “The world today needs,
more than anything else, folks on whom
you can depend.” Dr. Turner closed his
talk with a short prayer.

On Thursday, September 17, the Hi-Y
clubs held their first meeting of the year
at the Y. M. C. A. The meeting was
opened by John Betts, president of Hi-Y
No. 2. Following the opening Mr. N. M.
Cates, a former High Point Hi-Y man
but now with the Greensboro Daily
Record, gave an account of the organi
zation in his home town and what great
results came from his Hi-Y.
After Mr. Cates, Mr. F. R. Casper,
the daddy of Hi-Y, gave an interesting
talk about the first club that was organ
ized. He pointed out the differences in
the boys in school and in the Y. M. C. A.
since the Hi-Y was formed. Mr. Casper
showed the members what great work
ought to be accomplished by the pres
ent one, too.
To the new members Mr. C. D. Yost
gave the formal welcome and stressed
the fact that the new members should
carry on the work that has been started
by the clubs. Mr. Yost urged the mem
bers to be careful when electing mem
bers and to elect those boys who were
known to live up to the fine Hi-Y stand
ards of clean speech, clean sports, clean
living, clean scholarship and contagious
After Mr. Yost’s talk it was agreed
to combine the two Hi-Y clubs into one
and have Mr. C. W. Phillips as the lead
er. A limit of 25 members was agreed
upon. Lots of Hi-Y clubs for the fresh
men and sophomores will be started in
order that the present club will be main
tained as the members graduate from
High School. Mr. Phillips ended the
])rogram by giving a short synopsis of
the conference at Camp Herman, also
discussing the plans for the coming year.
A good lunch was given to the 15
boys who were present, and a delightful
evening was had by all.
New members are Ned Lipscomb, Pete
Wyrick, Guy Hill, Howard Wimbish,
and Eugene Cox.
Thursday night, September 10, the men
of the faculty of G. H. S. gave a sup
per at the Y. M. C. A. for the boys who
are going off to college.
Mr. E. D. Yost, of the Y. M. C. A.,
told briefly why the ^*Y” did this kind
of thing, and that it loved the boys and
would miss them. He also said that
boys belonging to the “Y” at college
would have free membership to the “Y”
in their home town during the summer.
Mr. Aycock made a short talk in which
he told the boys that if they won any
honors in scholarship or athletics, to keep
right on working and not think that
that was all that was necessary. Start
ing right was the point stressed by Mr.
Atkinson. Mr. Phillips told the boys
that they were entering a new environ
ment which was practically a change of
life, and that they must keep themselves
in hand. “Greensboro High School has
always been interested in you boys and
will continue to be so; it will follow
your careers in college with interest,”
said Mr. Phillips.
C. C. Fordham, J. A. Farthing and
Homer Coltrane also made short talks.
Several of the boys also made short talks.
The following are the members of
last year’s class who were present: Fred
Burroughs, Arthur Davant, Robert
Stone, Lacy Andrews, Lacy Wyrick,
Edgar Young, Bill Scott, James Caudle,
Worth Ferree, Julius Witten, Connie
Wyrick, Roger Haller, Curtis Wilson,
Mead Connelly and Stanley Sturm.

TROY ZIGLAR, GEORGE
NEWMAN TOUR NORTH
Visited Washington, New York,
Quebec, Montreal, and Other
Points of Interest.
During the past summer Mr. W. R.
Wunsch, Troy Ziglar and George New
man, Jr., of the High School, and Tom
King, of Oak Ridge, made a trip through
the eastern states and part of Canada.
The tourists left bright and early on
the morning of August 1 in a Ford car
stripped down to a front seat and the
gas tank, refurnished with lock-boxes for
clothes. The boys took turns at driv
ing and each had his daily duties of
cranking, folding bed clothes and strap
ping the two pup tents on the sides of
the car. The boys slept on the ground
nearly every night.
The first day the boys reached Rich
mond. Washington was reached the
next day. Two days were spent there,
with pup tents pitched in the tourist
camp on the banks of the Potomac. Gov
ernment buildings and Arlington were
visited; then an airplane ride was taken
over the city.
From Washington the boys moved to
ward the north, through Baltimore to
Philadelphia. There they slept in a field
and were drenched by a midnight rain.
Atlantic City came next on the schedule.
A mid-day swim in the ocean increased
the tan and the blisters, while an hour
on the famous board-walk make them
envious of those who could afford to loaf

HENRY BIGGS PRESENTED

From Atlantic City up the coast by
night to Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey,
where the quartet camped for a week
and made daily ferry boat trips to the
great city of New York. The boys
tramped the streets until their feet hurt,
looking at the wonderful lights, the in

On August 17 the quartet got pass
ports and crossed into Canada. New
scenes, new people, new customs! They
were impressed by the evidences of the
Catholic, religion everywhere; roadside
shrines and little metallic figures of the
Virgin Mary worn around the neck.
From Montreal the boys went north
to Quebec, through territory that might
have been European, judging from its
looks. From Quebec the boys went to
St. Anne de Beaupre, then back to Que
bec and across Canada to Ottawa, the
capital. Thence they journeyed to^ Nia
gara Falls, where they crossed back into
the States and were glad to get there.
They saw the wonderful sights to be be
held here and again turned their faces
to the South. They came through Mary
land into Virginia, where they camped
near New Market and toured the fam
ous Endless Caverns. Then on back
through tlie Shenandoah Valley, down
by Lynchburg, and arrived in Greensboro
on the 30th, as tanned as Indians, but
happier and wiser than when they left.

the old members of the Glee Club and

for a new year. The club meets every

period new songs are learned and old

to be perfect when the club is called on
