Some of the teachers of Greensboro
High have revealed their plans for the
summer vacation months. A reporter
has been able to secure the confidence
of most of the teachers and they are
v'illiug to enlighten the student body
along this line. Evidently some have
uot had enough school during the pas
nine months and so they plan to spend
the summer months in study.
Five members of the G. PI. S. facul
ty will do graduate work at Columbia
P'lnversity. Miss lone Grogan is ex-
pecting to complete the requirements
for an M.A. degree. Mark Lambeth
and J. A. Farthing will take a six
weeks’ course at the university. Miss
Estelle Mitchell will study French ;i
the Columbia summer school. A. P.
Routh will spend the first part of the
summer in Cuba and the latter part in
New York at Columbia University.
Other teachers intend to study at
various colleges. Miss Rena Cole will
study at the University of Georgia and
Miss Virginia Flollingsworth at Emory
J. H. Johnson will start work on an
M.E. degree at U. N. C. While at
Carolina he will specialize in dramatic
work. The latter part of the season
he plans to spend seeing plays in New
Several teachers plan to teach in
summer schools. Miss Margaret Brid-
gers will be a member of the faculty
of Tarboro High, and Edgar Allred
will be at the N. C. C. summer school.
Greensboro Pligh has a number of
teachers who are as eager as students
for this vacation period to begin. This
Is evidenced by their plans. Miss Mary
Morrow seems very anxious to become
better acquainted with the “handsome
Indian braves.” She will spend the
entire summer at her mountain cabin
in Smoky Mount, N. C. The site is
adjoining the National Indian reserva
tion by the Acara Lufty river. Misses
Mary Blackmon and Lily Walker will
not divulge all the secrets of when and
why they contemplate a trip to New
Three teachers believe a rest is
necessary after the nine months at
G. FI. S. Miss Sarah Lesley will
spend her time at her home in Lake
Junaluska. Miss Amy Caldwell will
be at home in Wytheville, Va. Miss
Mary Wheeler will rest at her home
in Mayfield, Ga.
Miss Fannie Starr Mitchell plans a
summer of varied activities. After
work at Columbia, she will spend the
remainder of the summer at Wrights-
ville Beach. Miss Laura Tillett will
.see Europe during her vacation, re
turning here in time for school.
Coaches Stanley Johnson and Homer
■Coletrane have signed up with the
Goldsboro baseball club of the Eastern
These are all the facts revealed to a
High Life reporter. The reporter says
there is a possibility that the others’
plans are not ready for publication.
