Speaks Before Enthusiastic Audience
of Juniors—Class Selects Flower,
Color and Mottoes.
The meeting of the junior class, semes
ter five, L>iday, April 12, proved to be
one of the most interesting and enthu
siastic meetings of the season. After
the minutes of the last meeting were
read, a report from the treasurer showed
that the members of the class were work
ing well in raising money for the com
ing year. It is the desire of the class
to have enough money in the treasury to
meet its obligations during the year
without having to call for much from
the individual members. For the class
colors green and white were selected;
mistletoe for the flower. “Where there
is a will there is a way"’ was the choice
for the motto.
Harry Gump, the class president, made
a short talk urging the members to go
forward with all school activities, not
only in scholarshii) but in all athletics
and class activities. “If you have done
your best it will surely be for the best
of the class,” he declared.
Norman Block, student body president
for the year 1924-25, made a very inter
esting and constructive talk to the class.
He urged the importance of setting a
goal and working to meet it, but let the
goal be so high that the summit will
hardly be reached. To back up this
statement he showed that a self-satisfied
person never amounted to anything. “To
be contented with your present standing
is the world is about the worst thing
that a person can let creep into his mind.
Make an effort to achieve something in
athletics and in all phases of school ac
tivities, including scholarship, if that is
gotten fairl yand squarely.. No matter
how low one may get in life, if he only
makes up his mind and says T will,’
that may put him on the top.”
Jeff Fordham, brother of our track
and football coach, and graduate of the
class of ’22, is president of the student
government at Carolina. Jeff’ is a mem
ber of the Phi Beta Kappa and has
taken an active part in aihletics.
('lenient Penn is “running away” with
track honors at Davidson.
Bobbie Wilkins has lived up to his
reputation as a leader. He was presi
dent of the Freshman class at Carolina
and played on the class football team
last year. 'I'his year he has shown up
well on the track field.
Nancy IJttle, from the class of ’23, is
editor-in-chief of The Coraddi, the N. C.
C. W. magazine.
Nellie Irvin, graduate of the class of
'22, has established a wonderful record
at N. C. C. W. She will graduate this
year and has accejited the position of
physical director at the Florida State
College in Tallahassee, Fla.
Elizabeth Thornton, who graduated
with the class of ’24, is doing splendid
work in dramatics at Saint Mary’s
School. She has taken the leading role
in several plays there. Elizabeth has
graduated in expression, and will grad
uate from Saint Mary’s this year.
Bill Scott, last year's state champion,
made the tennis team at Carolina.
Mr. C. W. Phillips, principal of the
Greensboro High School, preached the
baccalaureate sermon at the Star High
School, Star, N. C., on April 25, 1926.
The class, being the first to graduate in
the new building, consisted of fifteen
graduates. Mr. R. C. Kaiser, formerly
a teacher of Greensboro High, is now
principal of Star High School.
Mr. Phillips gave a very inspiring talk,
his subject was the “Do’s and Don’t’s”
for high school graduates. He conclud
ed his sermon by saying, “Be somebody,
do something, and have faith.”
The query, Resolved, That the United
States should grant the Philippines their
independence, was debated at the meet
ing of the debating club, held Friday,
.-Vpril 23. Edward Stainback and Louis
Brooks upheld the affirmative; Ernest
Scarboro and Glenn Holder contended
the negative. The negative won by a
two-to-one decision.
The affirmative contended that the re
tention of the Philippines was undesir
able from a naval and miljtary stand
point; that it is a violation of the fun
damental principles of our government;
and that the Philippines are capable of
governing themselves. The negative based
its argument on two facts: First, that
independence in the Philippines is not
politically and economically sound; sec
ond, that the Philippines are not ready
for indeiiendence.

Jim Heaton, and Miss Loes

Your Heart.’’ Mr. Heaton and Mr. Dib
ble then pleased the audience with “I've
Tried in Vain a Thousand Ways,” ac
companied by Miss Loes.
Mrs. Dibble, speaker for the day, ad
dressed the students on the opportuni
ties of youth. “We're never happy until
we get into the high school because we
feel that we haven’t really met the brains
in the city until we meet you people.”
She went on to say that high school stu
dents reminded her of spring. “Every
thing is so green,'’ the speaker declared.
“In the American and other magazines,
we read stories of people who have made
something of themselves in spite of the
circumstances,” the speaker continued.
“Anyone with ambition can overcome
his circumstances, and make something
of himself.
“What does the future hold for each
one of you? Youth is a wonderful time.
Do you realize it? The door of oppor
tunity is wide open to the boy or girl
who dares to try!”
Mrs. Dibble spoke of the foundation
needed for any good work. She told of
how mighty structures had tumbled to
the ground because of poor foundations.
Girls and boys, build upon the one and
only foundation that can stand the test
of time—Jesus Christ!”

The Technician tells that State Col

William and Mary in the debate. T'hat’s
fine! The extracts from an old cata
logue issued from the college years ago
reveal some facts about the school that
are very interesting. One section ran
something like this:

From the account of the Carolinian

if they all have as good a time as one
did. 'The article was about a Saturday

urer while he paid off all the help. It
was very well written and the little per
sonal touches made it very interesting.

She said that the girls of today craved
popularity, money and beauty, but these
did not last or satisfy. A girl’s name
may be compared to a flower garden

or later be choked out by the Aveeds.
