G.H.S. LOSES TO
TWIN CITY TEAM
Final Score 20 to 0—G. H. S.
Outplays Opponents in First
and Last Quarter.
Everyone has heard of the second team
or the scrubs; but how many students
have ever stopped to think of the type
of man that makes up this team? The
second group is usually thought of as
the men who either lacked the ability
to or did not have the “grit” to stay
in the game and fight.
The scrub team of Greensboro High
School is not made up of either; it is
made up of the men who love the school
and because of this love are willing to
go out to the field every afternoon and
help develop for the high school a win
ning team. Most of the boys of this
group are too light for the regular squad
and they realize that in all probability
chey will not get to play in a single
game all season. Yet they are willing
to go out and work their best in order
that the first team shall be able to get
a good practice. The man on this team
sits on the bench and hears the stands
cheer the other men. He is not jealous
of the praise his fellows receive; on the
other hand, he is the first to tell the
qualities of a good player.
G. H. S. should be glad to have this
type of man in school. The whole stu
dent body should realize that it is on
this man that the school depends and
that he is the man who makes the school
a place to be proud of.

At Armour’s Packing House the class

Saturday, October 24, at Hanes field,
Winston-Salem, the W.-S. H. S. Golden
Tornado defeated the G. H. S. Purple
Whirlwind 20 to 0. The game was played
on a wet and soggy field. In the first
and last quarters Greensboro completely
outplayed their Twhi City rivals. One
time Greensboro had the ball on Win
ston's one-yard line but failed to have
enough punch to put the ball over for a
touchdown. Winston’s scoring came as
a direct result of a blocked punt and
two forward passes. Winston booted
the ball over the crossbar for the extra
point with the exception of after the
last touchdown. Buie, a little but fast
back, starred for Winston with his long
runs. Captain Watson and Smith, the
former with his line plunges, and tlie
latter with his long runs, starred for

The horizontal bar, for which so many
boys have been asking, has been erected
in front of Barn “A”. Several of the
boys have been displaying real acroba
tic skill. Each lunch period sees a
crowd of spectators observing the per
formance on this bar.
In the morning before the ringing of
the 8:30 bell, two or three boys may be
seen exhibiting their prowess.
At the sixth period a real acrobat,

On October 6, fifty-two girls, accom
panied by Miss Reynolds, enjoyed a
four-mile hike to the Country Club.
There will be hikes every Tuesday, and
the number of miles hiked will be in
creased each time. If one may judge by
the large number that came out for the
first hike, the club will be a great suc
cess this year.
The fame of the Girls’ Athletic Asso
ciation of North Carolina has spread to
all parts of the United States. Miss
Walker received a letter the other day
from Bates College in Maine requesting
information concerning this organization.
The Boys Athletic Association voted
to foster intra-mural basketball at a
meeting lield in Chapel Thursday Octo
ber 10. The new system of inter-class
playing will permit each semester to
have a team except semesters seven and
eight which will probably be combined.
The Caldwell gym and Mclver gym have
been secured for the teams. Each gym
has two courts and a portable basket
so are well equipped to take care of as
many as care to come out. Class bas
ketball is taking the place of class foot
ball this year.

Large Number of Fans Witness Games
Oak Ridge Band Present.
Saturday October 31 at Cone Park,
Oak Ridge defeated Greensboro in all
phases of the game with the exception
of completing passess and with possible
exception of punting. Oak Ridge
sliowed tliat the best interference that
has been seen at Cone Park this sea
son and the Oak Ridge back netted
gains almost every time they carried
the ball. Greensboro showed up best
with their aerial attack, at one time a
pass to Wimbish netted 67 yards which
jnit the ball williin striking distance of
the Oak Ridge goal. But here Oak
Ridge's line held like a stone wall and
Greensboro lost the ball to Oak Ridge
Coach Fordham ran his reserves
throughout the game with exception of
the last quarter when he ran in his
first team. This was done with the
I)ossible idea of saving his first string
men for the coming championship. Oak
Ridge sent her second string men in, in
the early part of the game.
Captain Watson retired from the
game after making the initial kick off.
A large number of fans witnessed the
game in spite of the cold weather. Pre
vious to the game Oak Ridge Cadets
held a parade on Elm Street. Oak
Ridge Cadets attended the game in a
body and had with them their crack
band. Between halves Cadets held a
snake dance in the middle of the grid
iron. There was entliusiastic cheering
by the students of both schools.

GRADE 8A SURPASSES
OTHERS IN ATTENDANCE
In an interview Oct, 28, with Miss
Fannie Starr Mitchell, dean of the High
School, she stated that class 8A in Barn
B had a better attendance record for the
past month than any other class in school.
She wishes this to be an example for all
“All excuses for absences are due
the first day the jiupil returns and if he
fails to bring it he is marked unexcused
and five points will be taken from each
subject,” is wdiat she wishes all the stu
dents to bear in mind. However, if there
is a very good reason why the excuse was
not brought, she says that the time will
be extended to 8:45 the second morning.
Miss Mitchell suggested that if the pu
pils would have their excuses written the
night before there would not be such a
rush getting off the next morning.
