Since the objectives of the National
Honor Society have recently been
brouirht to the attention of the Greens
boro High School students, I thought
it mage lie of interest to them to know
he accepted interpretation of the rather
general terms, Service, Leadership, and
Character. Service may be interpreted
as a willingness to render cheerfully
and enthusiastically any service to the
school whenever called upon, and to
maintain a loyal school attitude. Lead
ership may be demonstrated through
initiative in class-room activities
which leads to higher scholarship for
all, through successfully holding posi
tions of responsibility, and through con
triving ideas irelpful to the civic life
of the school. Recognition in Charac
ter may be gained by demonstration
such (pialities of personality, honesty,
reliability, promptness, achievement,
and morality as are indispensable to
young manhood and Avoinanhood. May
not all of us strive to score even higher
when measured by such standards?

'Phis year the Student Council is
trying to function as a governing body,
representative of the entire student
body through home room and semester
organizations and the other organiza
tions re]>resented on the Council. It
is offering to the student body a plan
by which the students may have actual
participation in the government of the
school. The success of this plan lies,
first, with the Council, whose duty it
is to lead the student body in this mat
ter of participation and second with
the student body, whose opoprtunity it
is to recommend measures for the con
sideration of the Council. The Coun
cil hopes that the citizens of the school
community are interested enough in
their government to offer valuable sug
