MR. ARCHER MAKES
TALK TO TEACHERS
Discusses Teachers’ Attitude
Literature, Pronunciation and
Extension Courses at N.C.C.
HOLD SATURDAY CLASSES
Frederck Archer, Superintendent of
Cit.y Schools, spoke at the teachers’
meeting held in the auditorium of the
Greensboro High School, Saturday
morning, October 2. He stressed the
importance of the extension courses to
be given at N. 0. C. 'SA^. by Professors
Jackson, Elliot, Kendrick, Taylor, and
Lindman. ddie teachers were urged to
send in their health and North Caro-
lia teachers’ certificates immediately.
What Literature Means
“Parents,” said Mr. Archer, ' “fear
that their children are being lost in
the shuffle if they do not enjoy close
familiarity with their teachers. Ap
preciation of work comes through per
sonal knowledge of tlie instructor.”
Air. Archer stated that love of litera
ture and of poetry added stimulus to
the child’s work. He quoted several
verses from “Prayer” by Theodore
Roberts, “America the Beautiful” by
Bates, and familiar selections by Emi
ly Dickinson and Frank Sherwood.
Air. Archer also stated: “I sometimes
feel that the old Friday afternoon reci
tations have never been replaced in
the modern curriculum. A love of
good literature means much for per
sonal pleasure and comfort in the
years to come.”
Air. Archer dwelt lengthily on pro
nunciation. I-Ie stated that the Sep
tember loth issue of Time editorialized
on the standardization of correct pro
nunciation by radio announcers. “The
radio,” he said, “is a far-reaching in
fluence, and it should be constructive.”
Air. Archer recommended as worth
while recent books on pronunciation
by Richard Grant AA'hite and Ashe-
“Such words as the following are
often incorrectly pronounced: athletic,
often, data, either, length, ridiculous,
equation, and Asia. Teachers should
consider pronnnciation of chief import
ance, he stated.
The series of lectures to be spon
sored every Sunday night for three
inonths by the Church-by-the-Side-of-
the-Road, were described as being well
worthwhile. AAG II. Thompson, the first
speaker of the series, was represented
as a brilliant and able speaker. The
teachers were asked to subscribe to the
North Carolina Teacher and to join

DR. BROOMFIELD TELLS
TRIP TO SWITZERLAND
And Your Deeds and Acts are Echoed
Back To You, Said
“And yonr words and deeds are
echoed to God,'’ said Dr. J. C. Broom
field, in his talk in chapel September
28th. Dr. Broomfield, who was con
ducting a revival at the Grace Aletho-
dist Church, told of his trip to Switz
erland and about climbing to the top
of one of the peaks. “All around me,”
he continued, “was beautiful scenery,
but a cloud surrounded us and nothing
could be seen. God sent a wind and
swept away the cloud and it was a
wonderful sight.” Dr. Broomfield left
the others and climbed higher up. He
then came to Echo A'alley and stopped.
He repeated one short Bible verse and,
“The whole world seemed to say it
back to me, ‘God is love.’ ” Dr. Broom
field compared this to the universe and
said, “Some day you will have your
deeds, acts, and words echoed back to
you. AATll you be proud to hear them?”
TAKEN IN HI-Y CLUBS
BY LOCAL CHAPTERS
Ritual Held at Y.M.C.A.—Talk
Made by Edwin D. Wiener,
Boys’ Work Secretary.
MOTHERS SERVE SUPPER
Forty-Two Members of Hi-Y Now In
Greensboro Will Prove to Be Great
Power For Good.
Eighteen new members were initi
ated into the two chapters of the
Greensboro Ili-Y' Club September 28.
During the. day the bo.ys appeared in
costumes which were not altogether be
coming, and were the cause of much
hiughter and amusement.
The ritual of the initiation was held
at the Y. AI. C. A., starting at 0:30.
After a serious talk by Edwin D.
Wiener, Boys’ 'VAMrk Secretary at the
Y. AI. C. A., the boys attended a sup
per served by Airs. A. L. Thompson,
Airs. II. S. AVimbish, and Airs. O. N.
Petree. These ladies are members of
the newly organized Hi-Y Alother
Club, which will serve the Hi-Y sup
pers from now on.
“The Ili-Y ritual is a beautiful cere
mony, and is without doubt the finest
and most impressive thing that a high
school boy ever goes through. It chal
lenges, urges, and helps the boy to
create, maintain, and extend through
out the school and community high
standards; to nse clean speech, clean
athletics, clean scholarship, and to live
clean; and to look to Jesus Christ for
help and guidance in developing the
strong Christian character,” said the
leader referring to the ritual. During
the beautiful candle ceremony, at which
time the cross of Christ is presented
to the boys with the explanation of
significant factors, “Holy Night, Sil
ent Night” was sung in soft tones.
“There are now forty-two of these
Hi-Y" boys in Greensboro, and they will
prove to be a great power towards a
finer youth ideal in this city as well
as in their school life,” declared Air.
How should great Jove himself do
else than miss to win the woman he
forgets to kiss—Coventry Patmore.
Mr. Archer Pleased With
Standing of City Schools
(Continued from Page One)
In case of a favorable decision it
will mean that $2,000,000 worth of
school bonds will be issued. Of this
sum, approximately a million dollars
will be expended on the new high
school, it was stated. This schooi will
pobably be located on a tract of
ground near the center of the city, con
sisting of some seventy acres. In ad
dition to the regular equipment, used
for taking care of the regular class
room work, this school will be built to
accomodate a number of extra activi
ties. Included among these will be:
a .gymnasium for both boys and girls,
a manual art shop, a printing shop,
extra library facilities, and other
equipment of like nature.
Aside from this, money raised from
the bond issue will be used for the
erection of two, or possibly four,
junior high schools, to be located at
various points of convience as the
school authorities will deem necessary.
Aloiiey will also be used for the erec
tion of another grammar school, most
probably to be located in the AA"ester-

ANTIQUES NO MORE
Some people burn their bridges as
soon as they cross them. It’s a bad
practice we’re told. But what’s to be
said of people who burn their bridges
before they cross, or even have means
for crossing? That is what is being
done, however. Lindsay school and
the old AIcDnffie barn are both being
torn down although we have no new
High School building in sight. Our
schools grow larger and larger, our
buildings fewer and fewer.
AATiat will the French classes do
without that dearest, dearest old Mc
Duffie barn? There are two very grave
questions to be considered both by the
faculty and the student body. Also
the fact that more people are entering
the Greensboro schools every year is
a most important one. AA"ill the future
