Scholarship, Leadership, Service and

The inauguration of the new members
of the Torchlight Society, the high
school chapter of the Natonal Honor So

in an impressive ceremony arranged
^y the old members of the society.
Kate Wilkins, former student of G.
H. S., and member of Torchlight, gave
a brief opening talk, bringing out four
points as to what her membership had
meant to her.
She said that she envied the students
who were to be tapped for the pleasure
and thrill of beng tapped. The asso
ciation of similar ability, the inspira
tion, and especially the recommendation
to outsiders were her reasons for val
uing her membership so highly.
To the soft strains of Schubert’s Sere
nade, the seven members in vesture and
with lighted candles, came on the stage.
The president, Jennie Harrison, in her
talk stated that the society is a member
of the National Honor Society, Torch
light Society being the local name.
As the society stands for Scholarship,
Leadership, Service, and Character,
these topics were treated by John
Knight, Elizabeth Buliman, William
Venning, and Colum Sehenek.
The followng students were then
tapped: A. C. Bonkemeyer, Anna At-
I kinson, Eloise Taylor, John King, Janet

Quality of Teachers. '
DR. ALEXANDER DIRECTOR
The Teachers’ College of Columbia
university has announced a new course
in teacher's training to open Septem
This new course will attempt by
rigid methods of elimination to start
a new quality of teachers. Selection
will be based upon good heaUh, sound
scholarship, desirable personal quali
ties, and promise of unusual growth.
The course will be under the direc
tion of Dr. Thomas Alexander, profes
sor of education at Teachers' collie.
The student body in the first year
will be limited to 100 young men and
100 young women of outstanding ability
While preparing these young people
for teaching positions, the new unit,
which will grant the Bachelor of
Science and the Master's degrees,
operate also as a demonstration col
lege in which graduate students
Teachers college ui^iy observe improved
methods in teachers' training.
The length of study in the college
will vary from three to five years ac
cording to the ability of the student,
and will include at least one year spent
in study and travel abroad.
Students will be required to spend
some time in actual work in industry
and business so that when they become
teachers they will have an adequate
conception of the work of the world
into which most pupils who graduate
from American schools must enter.
Actual practice in teaching will be
provided by co-operating private and
public school system.
Cost of attendance at the college will
not exceed .fl,000 a year.
The curricula will also provide
courses in social economy, sociology,
economics, politics, and problems of
civic and industrial life.

“How to Read a Newspaper” is tbe-
title of an article written by Mrs. Alma
G. Coltrane, faculty adviser for High
Life. This article appeared in School
and Press, a magazine published by the
r..ee School of Journalism at Washing
ton and Lee university, Lexington, Va.
Mrs. Coltrane says that unless a person
is an intelligent reader of the columns
of news day by day and unless one
keeps informed concerning his city,
county, state, and nation, he should not
exercise the right of citizenship by
To really read a newspaper intelli
gently, continues Mrs. Coltrane, one
must know and appreuiAto- the energy
and effort it requires to publish a news
Since the citizens depend largely on
the papere for their information con
cerning political problems, students
should be taught how to be intelligent
“consumers of the news,” says Mrs
Coltbane. She also declares that the
Intelligent reading of the daily new:
papers makes one alert In grasping the
trend of every day affairs, accurate
in expressing those Ideas and careful
111 evaluating them.
Mrs. Coltrane states that civics and
economics can best be taught through
the columns of the newspapers. She
says that the intelligent reading of the
newspapers teaches the sensitiveness of
industry, for industry Is very much like
the human Iwdy—when something af

RICHARDSON IS OPERATOR
Chief Use of Slides Will Be For Screen
Songs to Improve Group
There has been some speculation at
G. H. S. this semester about the opera
tion of a moving picture projector. Ac
cording to C. W. Phillips, pictures are
to be procured which will be of interest
to all high school students. Those pic
tures are rather hard to get as the
schools wish to obtain pictures with no
rental fee. The express charges (both
ways) have to be paid.
At the present time a slide attach
ment is being put on the projector by
L. B. Richardson. With this attach
ment slides which are easily made and
are very cheap will be shown. H. Grady
Miller says that the students do not
sing very well while looking at books,
therefore the chief use of the slides
will b for the showing of screen songs.
Mr. Phillips says that this will greatly
improve the group singing at G. H. S.
Last year Holland Sound and Vision
Company of this city installed a double
turnable photophone system, which
makes possible continuous music dur
ing programs. At the present time
there is a move to install sound pictures
for the benefit of the high school stu
dents. The first program, which will
either be screen songs or a picture, or
a combination of the two, is planned
for October 28.
This year Clyde Wooten and Ran
dolph Covington are in charge of the
moving picture performances.
When asked about feature pictures,
Mr. Phillips said:
“Because of the time of showing and
expense involved, no long feature pic
tures will be shown.”

WILL ATTAIN POINTS FOR WORK
At a meeting of the debating club,
lield Friday, the 9th of October, tbe
question was again brought up about
some recognition of the participants in
debates, such as monograms or pins. A
committee had been previously ap
pointed to look into it, but as yet no
action had been taken. In this con
nection, Mr. Farthing said that he
hoped for the club to join the National
Forensic society. If this is done, de
baters will receive points for their
work, an award being given for a cer
tain nnmher of points.
Then followed a discussion on what
should be done concerning debates with
other schools. Challenges have already
been sent to High Point and Winston-
Salem, but no definite replies have been
received. It was decided that a chal
lenge should be sent to Salisbury, and
letters written to Raleigh and Durham.
The program was a bill of discussion
on tbe subject; Resolved, That Prohi
bition Should Be Repealed. Hilliard
Clein gave the majority report; Ed
ward Cone, the minority. A heated dis
cussion followed, in which Quentin
Dixon, Henry Nau, and Falmadge
Smith took part. A vote was then
taken, which resulted in a tie.
The club held a social, Saturday,
October 3rd. It took the form of a
picnic lunch at Cone Ijike. All mem
