Historians Are Chosen—Phil
lips Reads Opinions of Other
Schools Concerning Annual
Oct. 27 the Senior class held a meeting
in 103. The j>resident, Glenn Boyd Mc
I.ittle Jane Wood and Paul Strickland
were unanimously elected mascots for
the class of '2(). The little tots are two
years old. Jane has golden curls and
deep blue eyes. Paul has light hair and
brown eyes and is slightly taller than
the girl. They always have a hajqiy smile
ready for everyone.
Class historians elected are Hilda
Smith and James 'Fidwell.
Mr. Plullijis read letters from otlicr
high schools concerning tlie annual. The
report showed that all but two had sen
ior books and those two were considering
doing away with the annual and sub
stitute some less expensive book. The
principal had found that the demand for
money and the amount of time put on
the annual is too great.
HAS STRUCK G. H. S.
Sweater of Many Bright Colors Can
be Seen Around School—Christ
mas Colors Predominate.
At last the masculine portion of G.
H. S. is sporting a fad. Everywhere
evidence of this fact may be seen for it
has caught the attention and admiration
of nearly every boy in school and has
victims ranking from the plainest book
worm to the handsomest shieks. This
fad is called the “lAimber Jacket” and
is nothing more or less than a new com
bination of a sweater made like a shirt,
which still retains the appearance of a
coat or jacket.
(^uecr, very queer indeed, for in spite
of there being a doubt as to just what
this new’ article of dress is, it is usually
fashioned of materials colored with the
brightest and most dashing hues, such
as bright blue and orange or the Christ
mas color scheme of green and red, and
since the favorite pattern or design is
the checkerboard, these bright colcirs give
the jacket quite an air.
Aside from adopting these new jack
ets, to be an up-to-date boy one must
also don knickers and golf socks of
sympathetic shades and finish off the
w’hole by leaving the head uncovered
and allowing the hair in all its glory of
greased brightness, to shine forth. The
effect is usually quite startling, for boys
as a rule haven’t a well-developed sense
of color scheme: as often as not a red
headed youth will select an orange get-
up and be perfectly satisfied with the
result. Nevertheless, while the costume
may not be so very pleasing to the eye,
It is endured, for after all it is only a
fad and all fads soon die out.
CLASS OF ’25 PLANS
REUNION IN DECEMBER
Jefferson Cafe Will Be Scene of De
lightful Banquet for Former
Students Dec. 28.
One fine evening when the snowflakes
begin to fly and the mercury show’s an
inclination for the lower regions, a group
of familiar faces will find lodgment tw'o
hundred and tw'enty-five feet above the
streaming traffic of the Gate City. For
on this evening, Dec. 28, to be exact,
the class of 1925 from G. H. S., will hold
its annual reunion baiupiet in the Jeffer
son Cafe at 7:30.
It will be a night of gay greetings
and happy reminiscences. Many attrac
tive stunts have been planned to bright
en the hours. It is hoped that the class
will be there one hundred percent strong
to enjoy a hundred per cent good time
in the delightful atmosphere of a ban
quet in the Christmas season.

The arrangement of your front page
is very good, but it is very bad style to

do very well for the first page. You
might give athletics a little more space
