THOSE ACORN SLINGERS
Disregarding all rules of military
science and tactics, the younger hoys
of G. H. S. have engaged in numerous
conflicts (causes unknown) for the past
few days. These battles are the most
ferocions that have been staged on the
campus for many a day. Tins can be
easily understood when one takes the
weapons used into consideration. They
hurt, the.v sting, and the only way to
escaije injury from them is to take a
course in professional dodging. Jave-
line-throwing is not half so graceful as
The boys who are stud.ving Caesar
are the l)est throwers, as they try to
copy the style of his legions. Next to
lieing ;i gra(‘eful thrower is the honor
of being a good dodger.
The athletic heads of the school have
considering the feasibility of organiz
ing the acorn-slingers into teams as a
phase of high school physical culture.
The highest rank that scoiiting af
fords, that of Eagle Scout, was award

boy, at the last meeting of the Greens

AMERICAN GIRL SCOUTS
CHANGE OLD UNIFORM
The Girl Scouts of America, hold
ing their thirteenth animal conven-
tion last week in New York, select
ed their national officers for 1928.
The two-])iece, martial-looking uni
form. which the girl scout has
worn since 1911, was rejected. It
was not only obsolete, and deceiv
ing of the true temperament of the
wearer. Airs. Herbert Hoover, first
vice-president, said, but downright
“funny.” A gray-green twill uni
form with a more feminine hat of
green felt will be the costume for
both officers and girls. xV further
indignity was thrown on the old
uniform when outsiders mistook a
girl scout for a khaki-clad “tin can
“I'he girl of today is no wiser than
her grandmother, but she talks in
the language of today, Avhich is two
generations more sophisticated,”
Airs. Hoover said at the meeting.
