Norman Angell, British author and
lecturer of note, spoke at the first meet
ing of the Greensboro Open Fornm for
the 1920-27 season. His lecture dealt
with modern democracy, its faults and
the possibilities of its improvement.
“The war was fought for democracy
hut there has never been so great an
epidemic of anti-democratic feeling in
Western Europe within many years.
“If we look at our defects and ask
ourselves how we may right these, then
there is a hope for democracy.”
These were some of the most out
standing statements made by Mr. An
gell. The speaker feels that as long
as there is strife between her various
countries Europe will remain much
poorer than America.
After the lecture an hour was given
for the audience to ask the speaker
questions. Many points of general in
terest were brought out and developed.

Wade Wiley, recently crowned cham

to G. Todd, noted exaggerator, paid
G. II. S. a visit on Thursday, Septem

Shortly after his arrival the young
champion proclaimed himself in no un

pleased with the refreshments served
by the G. H. S. food dispensary, at
any rate he vociferated for a lengthy
period much to the discomfort of cer
tain Freshmen who happened to pass
at the time, and who greatly feared
that the young head of the Phillips’
family might pour out his wrath upon
them. Wade LViley’s anger was finally
appeased, however, without unneces

Prof. Phillips stated that he brought
his offspring to school in order that

THE LIFE AND LETTERS OF HENRY
E. BIGGS, JR.
By Henry E. Biggs, Jr.
The following, and intimate story of
the life of Henry E. Biggs, Jr., to date,
was written by Henry E. Biggs, Jr.
To begin with, I was born quite
ordinary 1 Yes, I was born, decidedly
horn; hi a house. I was neither a rich
boy who might boast of success de
spite riches, nor a poor one who might
boast of success despite poverty. I tell
you this that you may see the amazing
barriers which I found it necessary to
to tear down.
My first year was just one bottle
after another, with a “squawk” and
a “nap” occasionally thrown in, and
in my second, I crawled on all fours
and ate more milk. The third, fourth
and fifth years were a succession of
“stumped” toes and neighborhood
LYr me, the sixth year of my life
was one of the most eventful, a turn
ing-point from “prize-fighter” and
“street-car-condnctor” Ambitions to
those of public speaking. It came
about in a queer way.
My father and I were at a picnic,
and all the soap-box orators had given
their anaestlietic-like speeches; and
my papa was next. Somehow, how
ever, the announcer got his tongue
twisted, and called for Henry E. Biggs,
Jr., which of course, was the author,
Henry E. Biggs, Jr., himself. At the
important age of sir, I thought this
not out of ordinary, so, rising to the
occasion, I rendered them my best in
terpretation of “Little Boy Bine, Come
Blow Your Horn,” etc. I received a
tremendous ovation, and from then on,
my life-work was plain to me.
And now, even at my tender age, al
ready I have had nineteen offers orate
on the possibilities of “Hokum’s Soap,”
“Bunkum’s Pajamas,” “Leekfast Foun
tain Pens,” and all. manner of such
products, but I have kept ever before
me the one ambition of my life; to be

Greensboro, N. C.
The second meeting of the Greens
boro High School Debating Club for
the 1920-27 term, was held Friday, Oc
tober 1st. The program consisted of a
hill for discussion, namely, “Resolved;
That subscription to the school publi
cations should be made compulsory.”
Owing to the nature of the bill it had
attracted considerable attention, and
several of the teachers were present.
Louis Brooks opened the discussion.
“I believe that something is needed
to bring about a better cooperation
between the student body and the pub
lications, hut I feel that the plan now
under discussion is nothing short of
tyrranical,” the speaker stated.
Henry Biggs followed with a strong
argument in favor of the measure,
closing his talk with the statement
that there was nothing more to
be said on the subject, whereupon Carl
ton lYilder gained the floor and spent
several minutes in attempting to tear
down Biggs’ argument.
J. D. McNairy was the next to speak.
He continued along somewhat the same
lines pursued by Carlton Wilder.
The meeting closed with the first
speaker of the day attempting to tear
to pieces the argument presented by

SCHOOL SPIRIT AT THE LAW?
The anti-teahound law seems to have
driven some of the high school mem

of some other place to go or whether
they are really getting the high school

old ball park every afternoon, whereas
in the past few years only about 30
boys have reported for football prac

benefit to the school if a similar law
to that of the anti-teahonnd one would
be passed to prohibit flappers from
making their appearance on the main
streets of this city. There are places
for several more girls on the hockey
teams and such a law might solve the
