G. H. S. TIES WITH
Features of Game Were Home
Runs by Hastings and
Tuesday, March 20, at Reidsville, the
Greensboro High nine and the Reids
ville High School baseball team played
to a tie of nine-all. Both teams played
a somewhat rugged game, and most of
the runs were made by errors and passed
Greensboro High took the lead in the
first inning by scoring three times. Reids
ville came back and took the lead in the
fifth inning, only to be surpassed when
G. H. S. scored four runs in the seventh
inning. Then Reidsville began a rally
in which she tied the score, and the game
ended with the score of nine-all.
The features of the game were the
home runs of Hastings and Teachy, and
the pitching of Taylor and Fife.
G. H. S. was handicapped by the ab
sence of several regulars from the line
up who failed in their work, but the new
men played a very creditable game.

coacliing them in swimming. These
classes have been at the Y. W. C. A. The
girls have been out for nearly every
practice, and have progressed rapidly.
These classes are held on Mondays, Wed
nesdays, and Thursdays. There is to be
a meet between the classes some time in
April. Later there will be a meet be
tween tbe teams of neighboring cities.
There is a need for all of the girls who
can possibly come out to meet at the

schools to use in this book. Mr. Phil-

Final Score Is 17 to 1—Taylor
Twirls Excellent Brand
March 26, at tbe Old Ball Park, the
G. H. S. nine emerged victor over the
Wentworth team by the score of 17-1.
From the first to the last the game was
a slug fest and the outcome was never
Taylor twirled an excellent brand of
ball for G. H. S., giving up only three
hits. Wentworth’s only scoring came in
the third inning as a result of two sin
gles. The local high lads hit Meador
and Lewis almost at will, and this cou
pled with Wentworth’s errors accounted
for the seventeen Greensboro runs.
The Greensboro boys started off the
fourth like a whirlwind and before the
tide could be turned ten Greensboro
runs bad crossed the plate. Coach Ponzi
Dorsett’s men were completely outplayed
by the wearers of the Purple and Gold.
Tlie game was called at the end of the
first half of the fifth on account of rain.

Greensboro’s five-man track team near
ly licked Charlotte’s 25-man squad in the
Wake Forest meet. If about 15 more
prospective Paddocks could be persuad
ed to come out, G. H. S. would have a
track aggregation that would be mighty
hard to put out of the championship
contests. Ask Frank B. Avcock.
The number going out for sports this
spring is lamentably few—perhaps the
smallest in the last few years. Too many
tea-hounds and not enough real men.
It takes work and plenty of it to make
a place on a track or baseball team. But
nothing that amounts to anything was
ever accomplished without work.
Baseball prospects look a little “down
in tbe mouth” at present. Four of the
best men on the squad have flunked out,
practically wrecking what looked like the
best team in years. Come on, you would-
be Hornsbys and Sislers! Four places
on the team wide open.
Theron Brown seems about the nif
tiest discus, javelin and shot tosser in
these parts. Three first jilaces and one
second in two meets is not so worse.
Cap'll “Whiskey Eli Stumpy” Brewer
is a sure-nuff pep producer. He is the
only man we’ve ever seen who can keep
Bill Fife awake and animated for nine
full innings. Nobody else can hold on
to Bill’s hooks and smoke balls either.
Coach Coletrane has dug up a dandy
second sacker in Pete Wyrick. He han
dles the ball a great deal like Charlie
Engle, of the Patriots.
The girls’ baseball team looks like a
real aggregation of ball tossers. Ruth
Watson pounds the ball like a veritable
Babe Ruth, and Mary Tilley plays the
outfield in big league style.

G. H. S. TRIUMPHS
The Whole Team Showed Up
100 Per Cent Better—Many
G. IT. S. triumphed in its second game
of the year, Wednesday afternoon,
March 2, defeating the Jamestown nine
by the score of 20-3. The locals out
classed the visitors in every department
and had but litle trouble in piling up
Fife pitched fine ball, allowing but 4
hits during the 6 innings during which
he was on the mound. Taylor relieved
him in the seventh and struck out 2 of
the 5 men facing him.
A base on balls, an error, and one hit
accounted for Greensboro’s 2 runs in
the initial inning. Erratic fielding on
the part of the visitors gave the locals
2 more runs in the second.
In the following innings the G. H. S.
boys took advantage of Jamestown’s er
rors and increased their lead as the
Two hits and a stolen base gave James
town its first counter in the fourth. The
only two errors chalked up against the
locals, coupled with one hit, gave the
visitors two more tallies in the sixth.
“Pete” Wyrick was credited with the
longest hit of the day. Grubbs, Jones,
Brewer, Burgess, and Gardner hit dou
bles, which were largely responsible for
the high score.
The whole team showed up 100 per
cent better than before, and it looks as
if they should turn in many victories
for G. H. S. this year.

Second Year As Captain.
March 24, Bill Homey was elected
captain of the track team for the sec
ond successive year. I.ast year Homey
won many of the points for Greensboro,
and broke the state record for the half-
mile, running it in 2.6.
At the Davidson track meet this year
he won first place in both the mile and
half-mile. It is rumored that Mr. Ay-
cock is going to take Homey off the
mile and let him run in the half-mile and
Last year Bill made a very capable
captain, and tbe track men are confi
dent that he and Coaches Fordham and
Aycock will put out a successful team.
Don’t worry. Oak Ridge, we’ll take the
sturdiness out of your oak yet.

Allen Brewer was elected captain of
the baseball team for the season of 1926,
at a meeting presided over by Coaches
Johnson and Coletrane. Allen is better
knowm as “Whiskey” or the Midget
Catcher of G. H. S.
This is the third year that he has
played on the varsity team. He and his
old teammate. Bill Fife, have been lead
ing in baseball for the past three years.
“Weary Bill” as he is known has led
the team in hitting and pitching. He
was all-state pitclier year before last.
Tliese two men will be a great factor in
the success of the team this year

MEADOWS MEETS WITH
CALAMITY ON TRACK FIELD
During a recent practice of the High
School track team, Julian Meadows tried
his hand at javelin throwing with a dis
It all came about like this: Julian ap-
proaclied the line, and, putting all of his
five feet nine behind the blow, gave the
javelin a mighty heave. It was then that
the calamity occurred. The javelin slip
ped, as javelins do, and gave Julian a
hefty crack on the dome. The hero came
through the encounter unscathed, but,
alas! tbe lavelin was broken into a thou
sand bits, only good for kindling wood.
When the aff'air was reported to Mr.
H. E. Johnson, the faculty manager, his
only comment was, “It’s too bad that his
head wasn’t broken.”
All tbe school is glad that his head
wasn’t broken, though; because heads
can’t be bought at stores, as can javelins,
llien, too, the loss of the javelin will
not be felt; but if Julian’s head were to
be broken, h.is clieery countenance would
surely be missed by those who know him.
Clever men are good but they are not
the best. —Cadlisle.
