PETREE STARS FOR WINSTON
Greensboro Lacks Pep—Game Slow and
Uninteresting—Cheer Leaders In
still Crowd With Enthusiasm.
On Monday night, January 11, at
Winston-Salem, Greensboro High School
went down in defeat before the Winston
basketeers, 13-11. The game was far
from brilliant. Both teams seemed un
able to locate the basket, many shots
being tried and only a very few regis
Greensboro's defense was slow; they
seemed unable to snap quickly from of
fense to defense, thereby allowing Pe-
tree, the Winston captain, and Beck,
right forward, to continually break
through for goals.
Throughout the whole game the lads
from the Gate City lacked the pep and
vitality that was evident in the previous
encounter. Winston played a quick
snappy game, although this might be
accredited to the large crowd and the
work of the cheer leaders.
The game from a spectators’ point of
view was slow and lacked the thrill of
continual shooting. The score was close
at all times, the first half resulting in
a 3-3 tie. In the third quarter the score
see-sawed back and forth with Winston
leading at the end.
In tlie last three minutes of play a
Greensboro offense started off well but
was discouraged by the loss of the ball
and by l^etree's breaking through for
a neat goal. Greensboro rallied again
but this time the timekeeper's gun broke
up the attack.

gin, the final score being 12-16.

ing and accurate .shooting of goals on
the part of both teams. At the end of
tlie first iiali the juniors were ahead by
a few points, but in the next two quar
ters the seniors rallied and came out on
top. Ruth Watson was the outstanding
player for the juniors and Mary Tilley

In a recent interview, Mr. Aycock,

runs and field events liut very weak in
the dashes, the two fastest men, Koenig

the student body, your support has been

sjilendid work. Mr, Phillips has aided
the boys and we hope we have met him
half way. Our faculty manager, Mr.
Herbert Johnson, has been a splendid
manager. He has bad a hard, slow job
taking care of the money, and he has
been right tight with it, but he has done
it well. I want to express our appre
ciation also to Mr. Roberts and to the
people of Greensboro, especially Mrs.
Parsons and Mrs. I>ipscomb. And last
hut not least, the squad iUelf and Guy
Hill, who has stuck by the team on every
occasion. He has shown what a real
student manager can do, and he had my
sympathies when, in Salisbury, he had
two buckets over one arm, and a hand
bag and a doctor’s case in each hand,
and was bawling as loud as he could.
Coletrane is deserving of praise. He has
been with us and has been one of us
through all the struggles.

for a man and is bound to make a man.

boys—I am jiroud of you.'’
Willard Watson took charge of elect

chosen. Martha Sykes was elected man

nicely and said that they would take

Athletic Representatives Do Splendid Work
There is a group of students at G.H.S.
whose fine work needs mention. This
group of. students is made up of one
athletic representative from each ses
sion room. The duty of these represen
tatives is to take charge of the selling
of the athletic tickets and to try to see
that each person pays his athletic dues
(twenty-five cents) every month. This
is by no means an easy job and each one
of the thirty-one representatives has
done a splendid job.
The representatives from the various
rooms are as follows: Ethel Archer,
Chester Arnold, Louis Brooks, Bill Byers,
J. C. Coe, Virginia Douglas, Shelby
Fitzgerald, Jimmie Forsythe, John Fos
ter, Rose Godwin, Billie Grubbs, Le
