The typing team gave a demonstrat-
tion speed test before the Commercial
Club Friday, April 9. If possible, the
team will demonstrate before an audi
ence every week until the contest. The
purpose of tliese demonstrations is to
enable the students who will enter the
contest to gain composure. 'I'he typing
coach, Miss I>ulu B. East, states that
these public practices will eliminate to a
large degree the nervousness which is al
ways instrumental in causing the con
testants to drop far below their aver
age at the finals.
Annie Younts, with an average of 49
words per minute for 15 minutes, made
the highest record among the second
year students. Frances Johnson, the
first year entry, averaged 40 words per
minute for 15 minutes.

DEBATING CLUB HAS
Club Has a Heated Discussion About
Veto Powers of Governor—
heated discussion on the Query, “Re
solved, tliat tlie Governor of North Car
olina should be invested with the veto
jiower,’’ featured tlie weekly meeting of
the Debating Club, lield April 9. A de
bate on this topic was planned, but due
to the absence of one of the ctuitestants
it was turned into a general discussion.
Coiinally Guerrant, John Mchane, and
Margaret Hood were the chief upholders
of the negative, while Edgar Kuyken
dall and George McSwaln contended the
allirmativc. 'The affirmative liased its
argument on the fact tiiat the United
States allowed the president tlie veto
power, and that if a nation of 110,000,000
people can run .smoothly on such a plan,
a state government should be able to do
so. The negative contended that very
few states allowed the veto power and
that they were on a whole very progres
sive. 'The decision was finally awarded
to the affirmative.

'The two oLwers V uted out their prey

him and marched him in the direction of
the city jail. Alas for the romance,
liowever, when the true facts were
known. 'J'he ferocious negro became a
common “masher," and the scene lost
its effect of “wild and woolyness.”
It seems that the offender had become
too ardent in Ids love for the flapper,

“What size hat do you wear, '1'. .1?”
“Eight and one half.”
“'Lalk sense, swell head!”
“Get back to earth.’’
“I don't know, Miss Mitchell.” -
“Well find out.”
“Glenn, have you been measured?”
Such sounds as these greeted a visi
tor who came to the main building last
'Tuesday. What could be tlie reason for
this hubbub? Sounded more like a tai
loring shop Ilian a high school. The
visitor departed, still mystified, but one
with inside information smiled at the
visitor’s mystification. Huh — it wasn’t
anything except the seniors being meas
ured for tlieir caps and gowns.
In the meantime the seniors are doing
a little worrying on their own hook.
Where will they get a gown long enough
for Glenn Holder and one short enough
for George Donavent?
“Why, Dummy,’' says a bright fresh
man, “just get,two ordinary gowns, cut
the bottom off of George's and sew it on
