Dr. W. A. Harper, Mrs. T. W.
Bickett and Others Speak—
Greensboro Boys Officers.
November 6, 7, 8, the Seventh Annual
Older Boys’ Conference of Central North
Carolina met at Salisbury. The gates of
welcome in the city of Salisbury were
thrown open to the visiting delegates.
The boys were entertined in the homes
of the Salisbury people.
The keynote of the meeting was “1935
and Me.” The officials in charge of the
conference were fortunate enough to
secure a corp of capable speakers, who
are interested in boys’ work. Among
these were: Dr. W. A. Harper, presi
dent of Elon College; Mrs. T. W. Bick
ett, wife of the late Governor Bickett,
Joe Carlton, of Winston-Salem, pres
ident of the 1924 Conference, took charge
until the new officers were elected. These
were Moody Smith of Charlotte, presi
dent; John Mebane of Greensboro, vice-
president; Paul Scurlock of Greensboro,
secretary, and David Wilcox of Winston-
Salem, assistant secretary.
Friday night Dr. Harper delivered an
inspiring speech on the “Heart of a Boy.’’
Dr. Harper stressed the fact that a boy
must have a basic, a motive, a method,
a law, and a goal. He said the basic
must be faith, the motive service, the
method co-operation, the law the golden
rule and the goal Christian character.
Saturday morning Mrs. T. W. Bickett
gave a very touching address on sons.
She said that mothers and fathers of the
sons were proud of them and they should
try to live the life their parents would
have them live. Mrs. Bickert advised the
boys to lead a first class life and be a
better man than their fathers are. In
conclusion she told the boys to go with
the girls who would stimulate the best
that is in them.
Odis B. Hinnant delivered addresses
Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
Saturday night he spoke of the work of
the boys in foreign countries. He also
spoke of their need for help. In con
clusion he appealed to the boys to help
those boys of foreign countries who need
help. Sunday afternoon he told the boys
to live the right kind of lives now if they
wish to make a success in their future
lives. Mr. Hinnant said: “You are fast
becoming what you will be.” He said
nine-tenths of all the habits are formed
before the age of sixteen.” Jesus Christ
only knows what you will be in ten years
from now,” said Mr. Hinnant. “Take
him as your coach,” he said in conclusion.
A number of boys announced their in
tention of doing so.
Two boys, Marvin Isley of Greens
boro and Harold McCurdy of Spencer
spoke Saturday morning. The former
spoke on plans of our Hi-Y for the
coming year and the latter on what the
Hi-Y has meant to me.
Saturday night the boys and the offi
cials of the conference were entertained
at a banquet at Catawba College. G. B.
Phillips, former principal of the Greens
boro High School but now Superinten-
tendent of the Salisbury schols was toast
master at the banquet. Boys from the
various towns gave songs and yells.
A number of boys were nominated
from Western North Carolina as dele
gates to a National Meeting in Finland.
Among these are: John Mebane of
Greensboro Joe Carlton 'lof Winston-
Salem, Norman Willis of Winston-Salem
and others. One boy from the two meet
ings held in Western North Carolina will

BOYS’ CLUB MEETS; MR.
WUNSCH READS PLAY
“Fingers”, Gripping Drama, to Be
Given by Club in December
Thursday evening, November 5, the
Hi- Y Club held its regular weekly meet
ing at the Y. M. C. A. Twenty-five
members of the club were present.
Mr. Homer Coltrane of the high school
faculty spoke on “What are we going to
be?” He urged that everyone decide
their life work without delay, pointing
out that when that was done mastery of
self was obtained. Mr. Glenn Gilder-
sleeve outlined the plans for the Hi-Y
Glee Club, which will be under the di
rection of Mr. Miller. John Betts pre
sided over the meeting and Orden Goode
led the devotional exercises.
The meeting of November 12 was fea
tured by a talk by Coach Fordham, the
guest of the evening. He pointed out
to the boys the three big essentials of
life—mental, moral and physical fitness.
He showed how one was of little avail
without these others. “The person who
lives up to these three will obtain success,
but he who doesn’t will be a failure”, he
Af this meeting Paul Scurlock and
Marvin Iseley gave reports on the Older
Boy’s Conference held in Salisbury. They
averred that the convention was a great
success in every way. Guy Hill read and
explained a passage from the Bible.
At the weekly meeting of the Kiltie
Klub on Wednesday evening, Nov. 4, Mr.
W. R. Wunsch, leader, read the first two
acts of the play, “Fingers”. This grip
ping Drama of Boy life is to be given
by the organization in December or
January. The members of the club ex
pressed the opinion that the play could
be given successfully.
Ver ylittle business was conducted.
But a program committee consisting of
three members, John Gilespie, Jack Co
ble, and Beverly Moore, was appointed
by the president, to arrange for the re
maining November meetings. A meet
ing of the membership committee was
proposed for Monday, November 9.
The last fifteen minutes of the meet
ing was given to Miss Evelyn Barnes for
organizing a boys chorus that will sing
in the Presbyterian Christmas Program.
Ingratitude calls forth reproaches as
gratitude brings renewed kindness.
FRESHMAN SHEIK MOVES
“Girls go wild over a curly headed
blonde fellow.” Such was the tragical
case at G. H. S.
When the girls of the new annex learn
ed that a certain blonde youth was going
to move to Asheville, they quickly made
plans for a fond farewell to the “New
Barn Sheik.” Information concerning
the definite time of his departure was ob
tained and arrangements were made ac
A group of fair lassies, composed of
the heroe’s most ardent admirers, de
cided to form a single-file line of all girls
who wished to greet the blond gentle
man at the door of the school his last
day at G. H. S and demand a farewell
kiss from him.
He was to move Thursday, therefore,
his last day at school would be Wednes
day. After many long hours, days and
it seemed—to a certain group weeks—
Wednesday arrived. But alas! Where
was the hero? He was not to be found.
After having waited for a long while the
young ladies, still standing in single
file received the message that the hand
some youth had learned of their plans
and had made it convenient to move
away Wednesday, rather than Thurs
“That’s all right for you, Mr. Charlie
Graff. If you don’t want to kiss us
good-bye, you don’t have to,” is the
haughty-taughty message of the lassies.
