The Torchlight Society of Greensboro
High School met Thursday, April 26, in
room 10. This was not the regular
monthly meeting but a called one for
the purpose of a report from the finan
cial committee, of which Doris Hogan
is chairman, and Jimmy Webb, Eliza
beth Boyst, and Clarence Cone are on
this committee also. The chairman dis
cussed several ways to make money for
■expenses of the organization. Plans
were made for a rummage sale to be
given on the coming Saturday. A candy
sale to be held at either the National
or Carolina theatre was also brought
up before the society. The iast plan

“Each of the members of the Torch
light Society has in the pledge taken
upon initiation into the society, prom
ised to strive in every way, by word
and deed, to make the ideals of the
society the ideals of Greensboro High
School. I have not been in their at-
temps to do this. Since the ideals of
the society are the very highest—those
of character, scholarship, leadership,
and service—I feel that no better aim
could be held by the Torchlight mem
bers to aid their school,” said Miss
Fannie Starr Mitchell, when inter
viewed by a member of the staff.

‘IINE AND COLOR” IS
At the Civitan lunchean held Fri
day, April 28, at the Greensboro Coun
try Club, one of the main parts of the
program was an old-fashioned spelling
match in Avhich C. W. Phillips took
part. The side which Mr. Phillips
helped to victory was headed by Dr.
John Cook, of the North Carolina Col
lege faculty. ffTiomas R. Foust, super
intendent of the public schools, led the
other forces to battle.
The match was refereed and the
words were given out by C. R. Whar
ton, Greensboro attorney. At the end
of the battle Dr. Cook claimed the vic
tory due to the fact that his forces had
suffered fewer casualties. Although
there was a greater number standing
on Dr. Cook’s side, the defeated spellers
fought well. The words which caused
the most downfalls were “dyspeptic”
and “shoal.” Among mose who entered
the strife were Charles H. Ireland, a
gnest of the club. W. R, Taylor, presi
dent of the club, presided over the
meeting, while Andrew Joyner had
charge of the program.
Greensboro showed tremendous
strength in the half mile Saturday by
taking the first three places. Phoenix,
Leforte, and Homey came in the order
mentioned. In fact, the whole meet
was a gala day for G. H. S.
Issue Is Dedicated to Subject
of Art; Is Strongest Ever
FOURTH ISSUE OF YEAR
The “Line and Color” number of
Homespun came off the press during
the past week. This issue, the fourth
of the year, is dedicated to the subject
of aft. The cover design, by Ed Tur
ner, portrays the possibilities of beau
ty and symmetry in architecture. The
frontispiece represents a type of Gre
According to the present reviewer,
the issue is one of the strongest ever
published. Probably the most outstand
ing contribution is a poem by Carlton
Wilder, entitled “A Farewell.” An
article by Joe Hendricks on the sub
ject of “Industrial Architecture” is
very interetsing reading. Several
articles on famous madonnas and
famous painters contribute materially
to the issue. Poems by Rebecca Heath,
Randolph Freeman, Dick Douglas, and
Jean Barto add to the general interest
of the number.
In the alumni department appear two
contributions, one, a story by Margaret
High, the other, a poem by Charles
A play by John Brown and another
by Dick Douglas also appear in this
The motif of the fifth issue, which
will make its appearance about the
middle of May, is “the romance of the
sea.” This is the last issue of the year,
and concludes the general theme of
G. H. S. CLOTHING CLASS
MAKES USEFUL THINGS
Special Work Is Being Done In Ensem
ble Suits of Linen, Silk
In the clothing classes taught by
Miss Frances Summers “there are many
useful and attractive articles of cloth
ing being made,” according to Miss
Summers. If the truth of this state
ment were to be questioned one need
only to go to the sewing room to find
it verified in every respect.
Special work is being done in the
making of ensemble suits of linen, silk,
and wool. In their sewing these girls
—there are around 100 taking the
course—are using the following maga
zines : Elite Sti/Ie, Le Bon Ton, Vogue,
The Fashion Booh', and McCaU’s Quar-
Perhaps the most interesting feature
of the class work now being studied in
the clothing course is the pamphlet

Burlington girls surely know how to
play tennis, according to the Greens
boro girls. They are good sports along
with it, too.
Miss Mary Morrow returned April
15 from the first meeting of the South
ern Physical Education Association.
Georgia was hostess to this meet. The
program of the meeting was in charge
of Miss Bowers, of Brenan College.
“Miss Bowers is one of the most charm
ing people and puts things through in
a splendid style,” said Miss Morrow.
One of the unusual features of the prO’
gram was that all speakers, whether
of national importance or not, were
allowed to speak only 20 minutes.
Dr. Brown, president of Peabody
College and of the Southern Physical
Educational Association, spoke on the
“Progress of Physical Education in the
South.” One point that he brought
out in his speech was that most of the
southern states have all-time state
physical directors, but North Carolina
is short in this respect. The state has
promised to put in one in a short time.
“Florida and Alabama are putting
in athletic systems similar to ours.
There is a strong feeiing against com

TEACHERS IN DISCUSSION
OF ENGLISH DEPARTMENT
Doubling in English Not to Be Al
lowed Next Semester—Must Attend
Summer Schoo 1
Many questions of grave importance
were discussed in full at the meeting
of the English teachers Thursday aft
ernoon, April 27, in room 207.
Some of the most vital questions de
cided were; First, that no person
would be allowed to double up on Eng
lish on any pretense whatsoever. Fur
thermore, all students who failed in
their English work should either repeat
or would have to make up their work
in summer school.
Various types of objective examina
tions were also discussed at this
The Creative English class, the Eng
lish faculty decided, is to be continued
next year. This class, started this
year, is now taught by Miss Laura
Tillett, head of the English depart
ment. The faculty also decided to
continue a class in English mechanics
for the benefit of students who have
trouble mastering punctuation.
Some students will be required to
take this course before they can go on
in their English work.
The senior class entertained the par
ents and the facuity of G. H. S. with
a tea, April 19, in the high school cafe
teria. The guests, about 200 in num
ber, cailed between the hours of eight
and ten. They were greeted at the
door by Doris Hogan, Sadie Sharpe,
Marion Geogheghan and Eugenia Isler.
The receiving line was composed of
Dick Douglas, president of the senior
class, Frank Nicholson, Dorothy Spen
cer, Lucy Crocker, Charles Rives,
Charles Hagan, Karl Kregglow, Mr.
C. W. Phillips, and Miss Fannie Starr
Mitchell. At the punch bowls were
Carlton Wilder, Margaret Davant,
Thomas Williams, Sara Ferguson,
Ewell Crawford, Page Howard, and
During the evening the guests were
entertained by vocal solos from Jose
phine Lyles, and a violin solo by Kath
erine Jenkins, accompanied by Cather
ine Maddox. Inda Myers played the
piano throughout the evening. The
goodbyes were said by Elvie Hope.
The cafeteria was attractively dec
orated in apple blossoms, honeysuckle,
violets, pansies and tulips.

The Duke University Musical Club

the Odell Memorial building. The pro
gram was under the auspices of the
Young People’s Department of the
West Market Methodist church. A
large number of people were on hand

that many of the features were very
interesting and entertaining. They es
pecially enjoyed the symphony and jazz
orchestras, directed in person by George
E. Leftwich, Jr.
Another feature of the program was
the quartette selections.

City night school graduated 60 men
and women Friday night, April 27.
W. M. York, local attorney and prin
cipal of the school, presided at the
ceremonies which were featured by the
address of C. W. Phillips.
Mr. Phillips commended the pupils
and stressed his idea of the impor
tance of education and the necessity of
study. He said he believed it a mis
take for a person ever to stop studying.
Ten of the graduates are local public
school teachers. The night school fac

lish ; Mrs. Joe Hogsette, shorthand;
J. K. My rick, bookkeeping; Miss Lucile
Shields, penmanship, and Miss Mar

March. It seems that books of fiction
still rank highest in popularity. Last
month there were 1,581 books of fiction
borrowed from the library and 1,058
non-fiction. Including magazines and
pamphlets, there was a total of 2,639
books taken out.
Records show that more students
are realizing the value of the library,
as 11,650 students visited it during the
month of March.
Of the new books added to the
library there are some that will be of
special interest to the various depart

new ones have been added for their
benefit, especially. Liherty and News,

Teachers, and Mr. A. L. Thompson
Asked the Blessing
MRS. W. P. KNIGHT IN CHARGE
A moonlight picnic was given Tues
day, April 24, by the parents of G.
H. S. with the faculty as honor guests.
The group met at the high school
at six-thirty and left in automobiles
for parts unknown. A big roaring fire,
a rowing on the lake, and strolling
among the pines formed the chief
amusement until the supper was ready.
When the crowd assembled for sup
per, Mrs. Knight introduced Mr. F. C.
Hoyle, who made a short talk to the
teachers. He spoke in appreciation of
their work, and praised their loyalty
as well as their accomplishments. Mr.
A. L. Thompson asked the blessing.
After the fried chicken and the rest
of the supper, dancing, card-playing
and games were introduced.
Mrs. W. P. Knight, the president of
the P. T. A., was in charge of all the
NUMBER OF JUNIORS
MEASURED FOR RINGS
For the past week the juniors of
Semester YI have been measured for
class rings. A man from Schiffman’s
Jewelry store has measured all the stu
dents who wished to get rings this
semester. Each student paid two dol
lars down; the remainder will be paid
the first part of June.
The measurement for rings had been
delayed because of the illness of Miss
Mary Wheeler, junior adviser. Ac
cording to Miss Wheeler the rings will
arrive about June 1.
NEW STYLE FOR MAY DAY
“May Day might as well have a new
custom as well as any other special
day,” says Miss Caldwell, so she starts
a new fashion.
“Giggle, giggle, giggle,” snickered
every one to himself in room 7, Tues
day morning, the first day of May.
Miss Caldwell had come to school with
her apron on. Did she do it on pur
pose? Must we tell her? Would it be
all right to laugh out loud? These are
some of the thoughts that ran through
the minds of the pupils. One boy re
marked, after Miss Caldwell had dis
covered what the joke was, “I thought
maybe it was the style now to wear
aprons to school.”
