IS GREAT SUCCESS
Particular Phase of Work As
signed for Each Day After
Pattern of Prof. Koch.
The course in Dramatics, one of the
new features of the High School sche
dule, is proving very successful under the
direction of Mr. W. R. Wunsch. The
class, consisting of thirty members meets
daily at the eighth period in 106.
The chief text book for the year is
Hamlet’s “Speech to the Players,” which
is taken up and studied in detail. The
class is paterned after the course oifer-
ed by Mr. Koch at U. N. C.
On Mondays, the mechanics of the
stage are studied. These include the
theatre staff and each officer’s duties,
the conventional, cyclorama, and Port
manteau stages, the uses of conventional
scenery, stage directions and plans,
lighting and the stage of the future.
The different kinds of plays, with each
defined, is the theme for Tuesday’s les
sons. The parts of a play, enter and
exit, the roles in a play, the one act
play and how it differs from the longer
ones, are all discussed in full. The
study of plays such as comedies, folk
type, historical, fantasy, morality, force,
tragedy, and satire with examples of
each come under the study of plays also.
The class reports at least one, one-act
play a week and this is usually done on
In connection with composition and
creation, the Wednesdays lessons are
used. These include the dramatic situ
ation, dramatic monologue and dialogue,
the meaning of drama and reporting on
plots. Each student works up his plot,
then submits it to the class for sugges
tions and then writes his play.
For Thursdays acting is the topic of
interest. Four lessons are given on the
body, six on the voice, including laugh
ing, crying, dialect and enunciation.
Characterization also plays a large part
in the course. During the year every
pupil is given an opportunity to coach
a play therefore learning something of
Laboratory study is the general lesson
on Friday. The class makes miniature
stages of scenes with lighting and prop
erty included. Also scene painting and
make-up are parts studied on Friday.
As a climax of this year’s work the
three best plays written by members of
this class will be produced to select the
best. The scenery will be painted by
the class, the play will be coached by
members of the class and all arrange
ments made by classmen.
MR. WUNSCH MAKES
TALK AT BOYS’ CLUB
Boys Urged to Secure Outside Men to
Come and Make Talks—Many
New Members Present.
“Trying and succeeding and making
mistakes is the only way to succeed”,
declared Mr. W. R. Wunch, in a talk
before the Boy’s Club of the First Pres
byterian Church at it’s weekly meeting,
Wednesday, October 7.
The theme of Mr. Wunch’s talk was
“Making Mistakes”. “What are you
worth”, continued Mr. Wunsch. “What
is your name worth? What does it
mean when you say that you will meet
a friend at the post office at one minute
The speaker cited the case of Fannie
Hurst who once worked in Child’s res
taurant in New York. She wrote many
stories and sent them off to be pub
lished ; but each time they were re
turned. One day a story of her’s was
accepted. Now she receives twenty-
five cents for every word that she
writes because she was willing to make
mistakes and try again.
Mr. Wunsch closed his talk by say
ing, “Every stream in looking for the
ocean. Everyone of us is looking for a
bigger life. Our degree of willingness
to do and dare determines our degree
Mr. Wunsch expressed the hope that
the club could secure outside men to
come in and give talks.
Mr. Williams: “Athletics are all right
in their place, but Ernest must give
more time to his studies.”
Mrs. Williams: “Now don’t be too
hard on Ernest. Why he just wrote
me he had received two beautiful lamps
in boxing. When he gets rewards like
that it would be a shame to stop him.”—
Mr. Goode (over long distance):
“Hello, Sammy. Why didn’t you make
Sammy: “Can’t hear you, father.”

J. Watson: “I’m leaving for Colorado
J. W. Stone: “T. B.?”
J. Watson: “No—Grand Canyon.”
Mrs. Ridenhour: “Billy are you teach

Billy R.: “No mother I’m only teach

Frosh: “We have the biggest drinker
in the U. S. in our Class.”
Soph: “And who is he?”
Frosh: “The chap who drank Canada

M. Burroughs: “Why she’s ruined nine
Weldon B.: “I bought a car of you
several weeks ago and you said that
if anything went wrong you’d supply

W. B.: “I’d like to get a nose, a
shoulder blade and a big toe then.”
A Brewer: “What makes you think
you are smarter than your teacher?”
B. Fife: “Well, doesn’t she always ask
me questions so I can tell her.”
M. Tilley: “What were Columbus’ rea
sons. for discovering America?”
Mr. Aycock: “He wanted to find a
short route to the Indies.”
M. T.: “Why didn’t he wait till they
finished the Panama Canal.”

BOYS RETURN FROM
LONG TRIP AT LAST
Dick Burroughs and Ed Davant
Arrive Unexpectedly After
Traveling Fourteen Days.
At 12:45, Thursday, October 15, two
of Greensboro High’s prodigal sons,
namely Dick Burroughs and Ed. Da
vant, finished their “Coast to Coast trip.
Two sun-tanned, tired and happy boys
■—rich in experience, too rich maybe

Of the original group of four that left
for California last summer with a skeet-
er, the skeeter was the first companion
to part from the rest. It was sold to
raise money. Next was Clarence Phoe
nix, who decided to stay over in Cali
fornia and return by boat through the
Panama Canal. The remaining trio met
a man who was driving east and wanted
one boy to help him drive. So Austin
Comer came home first. He arrived a
week ahead of Dick and Ed.
Dick and Ed proceeded as before, com
ing all the way home in fourteen days,
bumming rides from passing cars.
They are planning to re-enter school
after Christmas, and to use the time
until then in getting back to normal.
ARCHER SEES NEED
Greensboro Ranks First in the North
Carolina Schools Because She Has
Good Library Facilities.
Before two full houses, matinee and
evening, in both of which G. H. S. was
well represented, Edward Waldemann,
well-known New York actor, assisted by
a cast of local talent, presented “Dr.
Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde” at the Grand
Theater, October 9. The play pleased
both audiences greatly.
Miss Mary Green, member of the fa
culty of Aycock School, headed the cast
of home talent as the fiancee of Dr.
Jekyll. The other members were chosen
from various walks of life in the city.
All performed very capably, showing
marked ability for amateurs.
The audiences were especially thrilled
by Mr. Waldemann’s vivid portrayal of
the two characters, Jekyll and Hyde.
They felt an intense sympathy for Dr.
Jekyll in his misfortune, and horror
gripped them when the repulsive Hyde
appeared upon the stage.
The situations in the play requiring
the most delicate handling—those in
which the identity of the leading char
acter changes upon the stage—were es
pecially well done by Mr. Waldemann.
In all his acting he maintained complete
freedom from artificiality.
The proceeds from the play went to
the Y. M. C. A. camp.
“The reason for the fact that Greens
boro has a higher educational rating
than other North Carolina cities”, said
Superintendent Fred Archer, in an in
terview, October 13, “is, I think, that
our schools have better equipment, es
pecially library facilities.
“Our students are as good as tbeirs;
we have, on the whole, as good teachers;
but when it comes to our libraries, and
buildings, and supervised playgrounds,
we have the edge on those folks.”
Mr. Archer went on to state that he
had listened to the speeches of the stu
dent council members in the High School
x\uditorium that morning; he had been
impressed by the four principles which
they discussed—loyalty, honor, co-op
eration, and scholastic attainments.
“It seems to me that those four things
are really the main requirements for
a successful high school. There is, how
ever, a troublesome element in most
schools,” he declared, “which must be
eliminated for the development of those
principles and for a school’s success.
This Bolsheviek element—probably just
three or four unruly spirits—will keep
the whole school in a continual garage
state if it has a chance. Now, we
don’t want any garage at Greensboro
High School. Mr. Phillips is no garage
man; he is paid for something better
“But, today, in America especially,
we have another great need, which the
schools must meet—the need for indi
viduality. There is a tendency to
standardize; most Americans are built
after the same pattern, and the next
generation is. going to be just like them,
if standardization is not eliminated in
the schools. When I heard those mem
bers of your council stand up before the
assembly this morning and explain the
four principles on which a schools’ suc
cess is laid, I felt we had taken a great
step toward the development of indi
viduality. But we must do more. I
want to see the day when every boy
and girl in Greensboro will be unafraid
to stand up on his own feet and state
his opinion on any question in clear,
B. Wimbish: “How much is a hair
Barber: “Fifty cents.”
B. W.: “A shave?”
B. W.: “Shave my head.”
President: “The chair does not recog
nize you. Miss Thurman, sit down.”
N. Thurman: “Oh you stuck-up thing!
1 was introduced to you last week”
JUST pull it over and you
are ready to go! That’s why
most young fellows want one
of these Bradley Shaker-Knit
Pullovers. Come here for a
real Bradley. Get the close-
hugging “V” or cricket neck
