LIVELY DEBATE IS HELD
The Debating Club of Greensboro
High School held its regular weekly
meeting Friday, April 27, with Law
rence Lloyle, vice-president, presiding.
The program for the day was fea
tured by a debate, the query being
“Resolved, that auto accident insurance
should he made compulsory by all
owners of motor cars.” Carter Wil
liams upheld the affirmative side and
Mary Mitchell the negative, the latter
being the winner.
Harold Cone gave a talk. In his
Dr. A. P. Kephart spoke to the
Parent-Teacher Association on “The

work, travel, school, reading, visiting
and camp are the best ways to spend
the summer days.
The commencement of N. C. C. will
begin June 1 and close June 4. The
program is a full one and will be of
great interest to more than 300 stu
dents and to the alumnae, faculty, and
other parents who are planning to visit
the college in June.

the constitution of the Debating Club,
and his chagrin in finding that he, for
one, was not living up to its provisions.
At the conclusion of the main pro
gram a discussion of new business was
in order. The question of the initia
tion of the new members, the annual
spring banquet, and a proposed revision
of the constitution were considered.
All business was left incomplete
pending action at the next meeting.
Freshmen! Freshmen! Freshmen!
They actually swarm through the
halls. Some of them are so small that
one might think that they had entered
high school by mistake.
The other day I encountered one
coming up the steps and out of cui i-
osity I said:
“What is your name?”
He looked at me and grunted,
“Huh?” and then walked on. I deter
mined to question him further, and as
I had plenty of time, I followed. I
caught up with him and said:
“How old are you?”
He grunted again and proceeded on
his way. I was now angry to think
that one of those impertinent freshmen
had dared ignore me, a junior, in such
a fashion. I caught up with him for
the second time, and catching him by
the shoulder, I said:
“You will answer me or I’ll know

Point, sang “hlistress Marguerite.”
Choosing Roads Essential
“Sincere seekings determine the
success of any flight,” declared An
nette Donavant, of Greensboro, in dis
cussing her topic, “Choice of Routes.”
She pointed the representatives to
three routes, all alluring and enticing,
the just-get-by, a detour, and the road
of abundant life and success. “The
choice depends upon our own hearts
and minds, for it is our power to
choose,” she concluded.
Just here the representatives were
favored with two selections from the
mixed quartet of High Point composed
of Helen Reich, Marjorie AVarford, Bill
Montgomery and C. L. Gray.
Success as Result
“Success came as a culmination of
a thoroughly planned flight. AA'ebster
defines success as the attainment of a
proposed object.” Grace Bulla dealt
with this topic giving many illustra
tions, which added vividness. Lind
bergh was cited as a singular example
of success and declared to be far in
the lead as Prince of Men. “ ’This the
set of the soul that determines the goal
and the road that leads to success.”
Superintendents from the three
cities were then asked to say a word.
Mr. L. H. Lathein, of AATnston. said he
believed that youth’s hero had rather
go down as going on than turn back.
F. A. xArcher, of Greensboro, challenged
the youthful fliers to find something
good in every day. Following Mr. An

joined in singing a farewell song.
