Although Wednesday afternoon Dec.
7th was a cold afternoon one of the
hottest football games of the year was
played at Cone Park when the faculty
and student elevens held their annual
crash. The result was: Students 19,
The interest in the game started when
the faculty came on to the field holding
aloft their waterboy, little Bobbie
Wunsch, dressed for the occasion with
a blue sweater adorned with a white
“F” and it was rumored that this letter
was for Fassifern. The water boy
clasped his water bucket in one hand
and held on to the shoulders of the
mighty Fordham with the other as the
faculty made, their mad dash across
The game opened with the students’
kicking to the faculty and brother Char
lie Phillips received, but was downed
on the twenty-yard line. After unsuc
cessful attemi)ts to gain through the
line Colterane booted the ball to the
12-yard line. Here the students worked
a “shoestring end” on their coach and
a pass from Burgess to Wirnbish car
ried the ball to the two-yard line and
on the next down Burgess carried the
ball to the first touchdown of the game.
Maus scored the extra point.
Thru a fumble the students received
the ball and made another score but
failed in their attempt for extra point.
Half ends lS-0 in favor of students.
In the second half the faculty made
two touchdow'n.s, one by recovering a
fumble and the otlier by a long pass
and a series of line plunges. Both
tries for extra point were unsuccessful.
In the last quarter the students, after
a long run by Smith, made another
score wdth Wyrick carrying the ball.
Before a try for the point could be
made the game was called on account

Wearing the symbol of this high school
does not mean so much to anyone when
they look about them in a class room of
thirty and see them scattered all around
the room, but that “G'’ means a great
deal. That letter means that the student
who is wearing it has gone through a
period of hard work outside the class
room, that he has given up his spare
time to his school to help it rank better
among the high schools of the state by
working and trying to make it have a
better athletic standing.
This year there were twenty letters
awarded the members of the football
squad for their efforts throughout the
season. These boys wdio received these
monograms have something to be proud
of all their lives. Their school appre
ciated their efforts and considered that
they were enough credit to the school in
athletics to be entitled to wear at any
time they saw fit this mark of appre
All the boys who received this mono
gram should remember that this was the
reason that they w’ere given this award,
and for that reason should conduct them
selves at all times so that they will be a
credit to this institution.
“Pop! Pop! Bang! poi)—poi)—put—
“Look out there Boots! that thing’ll
take the crease outer yer pants.”
“Will it bite?”
“There goes Tucck startin’ now.”
And so the uproar goes for two or
three minutes at the lunch periods and
after school. G. H. S. has added a new
squad to her transportation department.
Bicycles, skates, autos. Fords, skeeters—
and now'^ motorcycles. The parking lot
in front of the nursery is now' being
occupied by motorcycles.
This new fad has brought G. H. S.
five motorcycles—enough to start a fine
motordrome. Skeeters are no longer the
rage; their kindred gas-bugs with two
w'heels and two cylinders have come to
the front. There’s just one trouble with
these motorcycles; one can’t ride enough
gi—er— of his friends on them; just
one at a time.
“I think I’ll get me a motorcycle,” the
envious bystanders are heard to declare.
Hard Fought Hockey Game-
Final Score 3-1—Locals
Score in Last Half.
The G. H. S. Girls’ Plockey team
came from Winston, Tuesday, Dec. 1,
feeling rather blue. They showed the
Winston team, how'ever, that they were
hard to beat as the score was 3 to 1.
Greensboro lost out at the beginning of
the game and, although better plays
w'ere made in the end, her score could
not be raised.
Everyone played well, but not as well
as they have in other games. Dot Lea
scored for Greensboro.

Score 25 to 9.
Once again Greensboro bows to Guil
ford, Friday, December 11, at Guilford
College Gym. The fast Guilford ca-
gers defeated the Greensboro quintet
2i)-9. Greensboro played a slow, ragged
game, allowing the Guilford boys to
dribble past them at any time. Greens
boro seemed unable to get the ball in
their possession and there was a noted
lack of co-operation on the part of the
Some of Greensboro’s most reliable
men w’ere prevented from taking part
in this game because of the football
banquet on that night.
Guilford played a good steady game
throughout. Their Captain, Ferrell,
played an especially good game. - He
dropped the ball through the basket
continually, making a total of fifteen
points for Guilford.
A large crowd of Guilford coherents
saw’ the game.

Will the next fad among our boys be
motorcycles? Looks like it; there are
several parked around and about the
campus lately. Look out, you “skeeter”!
You'd better hold on tight.
Wonder how many “charlie-horses”
the faculty were groaning over after the
“Faculty-Varsity” game Wednesday?
Glenn Holder was too long for the
tape measure, when the nurses tried to
take his measure.

Lipscoinh’s election occasioned no sur
prise in view of his popularity and ex
cellent iierformance on this year’s var
sity eleven, althougli the past season
was his first year on the varsity. Ilis
steady ])erformanee at center was one of
the chief factors in the team’s successes
this season, and his work at intercepting
passes featured his playing. Ned was
elected almost unanimously . Next year
will probably find him playing at cen

a leader, Martha Sykes, who was a

G. H. S. QUINTET 25-17
Game Marked by Lack of Cooperation
of “G” Team—Bessemer Boys
Play a Hard Game.
At White Oak “Y” December 12,
Bessemer defeated the G. H. S. quintet
25-17. The game was marked by lack
of cooperation of the “G” team. At
tempts to pass were futile and the team
seemed to lack the pej) that marks a
Greensboro team. 'I'his was probably
due to the absence of some of the “old
reliables” and also due to the fact that
