Thelma Miles places her character in an
office with “the boss away”; Sarah Men

father and his finger-prints on his own
family; Maddry Solomon plans to give
the picture of a mountaineer who breaks
prison to come to see his new-born son;
Mary Jane Wharton may take an Amer
ican flapper to the English Court; Cyn
thia Vaughan will dress her characters
in colonial garb and give a picture of
the pre-Revolutionary period; Margaret
Crews promises to show three romantic
nights in the life of a modern girl. In
the meantime the other members of the
class are searching newspaper columns

Edmund Turner has designed a seal
and trade-mark for the Greensboro High
School Dramatic Club. It is a tragic
mask through which runs a spear, and
the head of the spear itself is a jester’s
head. This design will be put on all
programs and will be also worked up
into a pin for those members of the
cluh who do exceptional work in dramat
ics during the year.
Students to Sell Colors, Candy and
Have Bazaars, Etc.—Songs, Colors,
and Fees to Be Chosen.
The Sophomore Class held the second
meeting of the year and the first of a
series of regular meetings on Wednesday,
November 18, at chapel period in Room
12. Harry Gump, president of the class,
made an inspiring talk on “Making
Something out of the Sophomore Class,”
giving some statistics of the past and
asking for a better record in the future.
“I would like to have the Sophomore
class to be known as a class which is
willing to do things and which does do
things, and to be thought of as such,
when the need comes,” he said.
A committee was named to plan the
class song, colors and fee, and also one
to arrange to sell colors and candy and
to have bazaars and the like to make
money for next year’s “Junior-Senior.”
McNAIRY AGAIN FIGURES

'I'he Dramatic Club has quarters at
last in the form of a studio in the north
ern half of 201. There the coach has
assembled make-up, photographs, tro
phies, clippings, and books on the the

a store-house. It is hoped that in an
other year the organization can begin
to think of a “Uttle Theatre” building
or an equivalent.
If the powers-that-be permit it, there
will be a course in Dramatics 2 next
semester. This will be a continuation of
the work begun in Dramatics 1, but will

The notorious McNairy is again figur

a bold-faced attempt to induce several
feminine members of the student body to

tunately the rascal’s purpose was dis
covered in time; and through the efforts
of Mr. Henry E. Biggs, Jr., public spir
ited citizen of our community, he was
prevented from carrying out the plan.
As usual, McNairy worked with the
smoothness and precision which is equal
led by no other criminal in the state, ex
cept possibly the well-known Otto Wood.
Assuming an attitude of penitence for
his past misdeeds, and claiming that he
had reformed for all time, he was able
to play on the tender feelings of Mr.
Biggs to such an extent that the mag

Charlotte that his morals might be up

BY freshman LATIN CLUBS
On Friday, November 20, the Fresh

ing. The main feature of the program
was a short play giving the life of a
small I.atin girl, Julia. A short talk
was given by Elizabeth Paivers on what
the Romans ate. A short song was
sung in I^atin by the entire club.

On the contrary, the rascal at once
sought to induce several young ladies to
accompany him without saying anything
about the matter to Mr. Biggs. Depend

our fellow citizen, he dictated notes ad

ladies asking that they be allowed to
accompany him to Charlotte. Mr. Biggs

The heads for the articles might be

the paper is to be congratulated. At

PANTOMIME TO BE
PRESENTED BY B6
A pantomine dealing with the early
colonial life is to be presented by room
B6 on December 7-9. The play, which
is under the direction of Miss LeRoy,
is a comical portrayal of the romance
of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas.
It does not, however, confine itself
strictly to historical facts; for in the
end Smith is wedded to the beautiful
daughter of the mighty chief Powder
