MISS DOBSON GIVES
Says Over Eight Hundred Pu
pils Buy Lunches Each Day-; •
Ice Cream and Milk Lead.
HELP IS APPRECIATED
Miss Sara Dobson, city school cafe
teria supervisor, says tliat the cafeteria
has been making expenses and a small
profit so far this year.
Of the l,2r.O students of the senior
high school between ToO and 800 stu
dents eat In the cafeteria each day.
From 200 to 250 eat at the first period,
100 to 100 at the second, and 300 to
400 at the third. Many students bring
their lunch and eat in the cafeteria,
and others bring part of their lunch
and buy part of it.
It is interesting to note that the cafe
teria serves 08 gallons of soup, 500 to
000 servings of ice cream and 500 to
COO servings of milk and sandwich
every day. Ice cream and milk are
the “best sellers." Vegetables and
salads combined compare favorably
with the selling of milk and ice cream.
The cafeteria sells ten cases more of
milk per day than formerly. The stu
dents have co-operated in not breaking
the milk bottles, and Miss Dobson
wishes to thank them, but there are not
as many bottles returned as there
Miss Dobson varies the menu as
much as possible, and she tries to intro
duce something new each week. Slie
promises to have chocolate eclairs more
often in the future. I’ractlcally every
thing on the menu is cooked in the cafe
teria and very few canned vegetables
There are 18 school boys and girls
working in the cafeteria and there are
six colored helpers.
Sailing I sailing! this is the feature of
Sea Scouting, and boy is this fun?
Leaving early some Saturday morn
ing five or ten boys from the Greens
boro Sea Scout ship go on a cruise. They
.•e a few hours later at High Kock,
take the sails, food, and a sea bag
aboard the boat. After rigging the boat,
the actual cruise begins.
The boat, a whole boat, donated by
the IT. S. Navy, is twenty-four feet long
having a jib, a foresail, and a main
a nice breeze is blowing they sail
out of the harbor; but if not, they have
5w out. After getting on the body
of the lake if. the wind is up, the fun
At first the boys sail in the direction
of the wind probably making eight or
ten knots which on water seems almost
like flying. Spray coming over the
bow and white caps forming adds to the
fun and enjoyment.
After going a reasonable distance
down the lake, they tack against the
wind going back up the lake. Tacking
going diagonally across the lake
from one side to the other. This is
where it takes skill to sail. Sometimes

TOO BAD! 'TWAS JUST A DREAM
We learned from a reliable source
that our famous trombone player, Bob
by Simmons, still has some hope of
going to heaven. W’e have our opinion
on the fact that Bobby has been dream
ing about the Gabriel Symphonic Band.
One night it seems that “Trombone
Bobby" went to heaven (believe it or
not). On arriving, he immediately
found where Gabriel was having a re
hearsal of his famous Symphonic Band.
The band made Bobby’s eyes open with
wonder, and his knees felt strangely
weak. For here on Gabriel’s right were
at least 40 trumpets, and on his left
were about 120 clarinets, and all the
rest of the instruments wore in propor
tion. There, were at least 1,000 pieces
in Gabriel’s Band.
Then Bobby scraped up his nerve and
up to Gabriel marched he.
“Mr. Gabriel,” brave Bobby said, “I’d
like to try out for your band.”
“Well, son, I guess you might as well.
What instrument do you play?"
“A trombone, sir,” said the excited
“0. K.," said Gabriel, “try reading
the new music,”
So Bobby took up his mighty trom
bone and played the selections with the
same old style that made G. 11. S. hold
its ears. Gabriel stood in awe.
“That’s fine” the holy educator said,
“take your seat behind the baritones.”
The elated Bobby strode off to his
long-hoped-for place in the famous
band. But to his sorrow he could not
find any more trombone players.
“0, Mr. Gabriel,” cried the frightened
Bobby, 'I can’t find the trombone sec
“That’s all right, son,” Gabriel calmly
returned, “sit down where you are.
After hearing you play I’ve decided not
to use any trombones but you.”
Then Bobby awoke.
Senior Sea Scouts
Go to High Rock
a squall will strike the scouts unawares
and sometimes it almost turns the boat
over. This happened once and although
the boat turned upside down in the
water, only one boy got wet.
The boys usually eat and sleep on the
boat, sail Sunday and return home that
night. It usually rains at least bnce
on a cruise, but the scouts soon get
used to that.
This is just one of the week-end
cruises that they take about twice a
month. In the summer there is always
a long cruise on which nearly every
Greensboro Sea Scout goes. Summer be
fore last the Sea Scouts took a cruise
on the E. L. Marin schooner on the
Chesapeake Bay. Last summer they
took, a week’s cruise on High Rock, but
this summer they expect to take a cruise
on some Naval Reserve vessel at Nor
folk, maybe to the West Indies on which
there wilL probably be more fun than
they have ever had before.
The Sea Scouts of America is a sub
sidiary of the Boy Scouts of America.
Sea Scouting appeals to the older boy.
It is necessary that the boy be fifteen
years of age and a First Class scout to
A number of Senior high graduates
were seen enjoying themselves on the
campus and in the halls during the
spring holidays. Among these were:
Ed Garrett, Rigdon Dees, Foy Gaskins.
Harold Draper, Steve and Dick Doug

David Morrah, Edwin Holt, Bill Scott,
Frank Abernathy, and Jack Klcemier,
Lewis Brooks is well again; he’s even
put aside the crutches—a slight limp
only tells of his recent broken leg.
J. D. McNairy has been electetd to
the Phi Beta Kappa fraternity, the na
tional scholastic fraternity. A grade
of 90 must be made for a student to
receive a Phi Beta Kappa key.
Margaret Kernodte is reaping her re
ward for her diligent work on High
Life during her years at senior high.
She was recently chosen to serve on the
staff of the Carolinian, the N. C. C. W.
Alene Weatherly, while on a return
visit to G. II. 8,, stopped before Mr.
Hamilton's study hall door, and was
overheard saying, “There’s that cute
new teacher! Isn’t he darling?”
Few of the present students of senior
high remember Bernard Ahman. He is
new editor of the Wataugan, a State
college humor magazine. Remember,
Bernard, a laugh a day keeps the doc
tor away. Keep ’em laughing!

OPERATING AT G. H. S.
la Composed of Forty-five Members
Consisting of Both Faculty
One of the most effective undertak
ings of the student council of Senior
high school this year is the organiza
tion of the secret service. This organi
zation, similar to others of the same
name, pperates in secret and the names
of its members are withheld. The se
cret service is composed of 4.5 mem
bers, consisting of both students and
The council and the faculty are much
pleased with the work of the organi
zation. Through it they have been able
to check up on petty details which oth
erwise would be overlooked. It is some
thing that the school has been needing
for years, and the present student coun
cil sliould be commended for having
started such an organization, which
means service to Senior high,
Conceit is that quality which every
man will deny having and every man
You’re certainly conceited if you deny
being conceited. If you admit you’re
conceited, you’re more conceited, for
you think you’re doing a finer thing
than someone else in admitting your

cause of your conceit in admitting
Therefore, the first and most obvious
conclusion can do nothing but admit
that we are all conceited. Some peo
ple choose to apply the epithet of “self-
confidence” to our subject, but conceit
is assuredly conceit. All hail the con
The greatest men of all times have
been conceited! Napoleon, Caesar,
Browning, or Shelley all lifted their
noses on occasion.
Therefore, comrades, develop the cold

We are lords of the universe.
A LITTLE WARBLER IS DEAD
Poor little warbler, potential
mother. Tliou didst brave all the
danger of storm and sea, winging
the way surely over hundreds of
miles of land and sea, that thou
mightest build thy nest and rear
thy brood among us, only to be
shot dead by some vandal of a boy
who thought it was sport to kill
thee. Who knows by how many
warblers dhe world is poorer because
of thy death?
Here are some health thoughts!
1. Keeping your own body clean
helps prevent the spread of germs and
2. Cleanliness is closely related to
good citizenship and godliness.
3. Take the time and energy to stop
and pick up any paper you might
chance to be near.
4. Desks, pencil-sharpeners, books,
erasers, chalk—all are handled by the
fourteen hundred students who go
and out the classrooms daily. Imagine
the germs left on each of these by
5. At a doctor’s laboratory in Vir
ginia, the doctor proclaimed that 75
per cent of all children’s diseases could
have been avoided if the parents had
taught the children the important
rules of sanitation.
6. People who have clean bodies also
have clean minds; they think clean
thoughts—their average in scholarship
as a rule is highest.
7. As long as there is soap and water
there can be no excuse for unclean
8. Create good health habits—eat the
proper food, wear correct clothes, and
take proper care of your skin.
9. Make hygiene a habit, and you will
have a clean city and healthy citizens.
10. How do you come to school? Do
you wear makeup like a clown? heels
like telephone poles? dirty face and
hands? If you do you should stay at
home until you learn bettter
11. A schoolgirl should wear oxfords,
or medium heels, not spikes! A plain
washable dress, not too much make-up
and clean face, hands, neek, and nails,
and have her hair combed.
12. A schoolboy should wear a
clean shirt, a tie; and be sure to polish
those shoes; wear clean socks.
Cleanliness is the first rule in health!
WINS HIGH HONOR
Frances Crawford, former Greensboro
high student, who moved to Washington,
D. C. in 1928, graduated from Washing
ton Central high at the past midterm.
She received the highest scholarship
award of any one in her class. Dr.
II A. Smith, principal, announced her
grades as being 100 per cent E and A
in all subject quizzes.
Starting her high school career at
G. H. S. in the freshman class of ’27-!
Frances moved in the summer to Wash
ington with her parents. She entered
Central high school there, which
much larger school than Greensboro
high. In 1931 she won honor among
her schoolmates by being elected into
the National Honor Society correspond
ing to Torchlight. Graduating with the
1932 mid-term class she gained the high
est scholarship award of the group.
WHAT CONSTITUTES A GOOD HIGH
Sopliomore:—A specimen of the
human race attending senior high school.
The average sophomore is very small,
“runty” in. fact, and has a very limited
knowledge of high school etiquette,
or of anything else.
Junior;—An advanced sophomore (q
V,), usually larger and more dignified.
This representative of high school life
may now look upon the “runty” sopho
mores with scorn, and refuse to eonde
scend to notice the poor creature.
Senior:—One of a group of high
school students who have attained the
highest distinction that high school has
to confer upon a student. This group
disdains all other students, and even
the members of the faculty.
April Fool Birthdays
April fool children. No, that
doesn’t mean that certain people
have been “acting up” especially,
but that they have merely been hav
ing birthdays again. Some of the
possessors of April fool birthdays
arc: Pauline Foy, Baxter Scott, Ruth
Harwell, Helen Sutton, and Billy
Now you may judge for yourself
just how well these individuals live
up to their heritage.

CONTEST FOR PUPILS
Because of the depression and
lack of funds, no new books, maga
zines or pictures have been bought
for the library this year. The li
brary is in need of new materials.
Realizing this need, Miss Wall has
arranged a contest which all may
enter. Students have at home old
magazines and books with which
they have finished and would like
to share with others. Miss Wall
is offering a worth while prize to
the person who brings to the li
brary, not the most, but the best
materia] that will help to make the
library a better place. This ma
terial may consist of good books,
old magazines from which articles
and pictures may be cut, or any
thing else that in the pupil’s opin
ion will add to the library. The
contest opens Monday, May 18th,
and all material must be in by 3:30
Friday, the 22nd.
Mathematics underlies present-day
civilization in much the same far-reach
ing manner that sunshine underlines all
forms of life, and we unconsciously

mathematical achievements of the race
just as we unconsciously enjoy the bless

STATE MATH CONTEST
TO BE HELD APRIL 22
Sponsored by University of N. C.; Will
Include Test on Algebra, Arithme
tic, and Plane Geometry.
The annual high school mathematics
contest, sponsored by the University of
North Carolina will be held through
out the state April 22. Students who
may take part in the contest are lim-
ied to members of the sophomore, jun
ior, and senior classes. The scope of
the contest will include algebra, arith
metic, and plane geometry.
The individual school will select the
best paper submitted by students of
that school and send it to the secretary
of the mathematics committee at the
University of Nortli Carolina at Chapel
Hill by April 22, 1932. There will be
only one paper sent from each school.
The papers will be graded by mem
bers of the faculty of the University,
and the winner of the contest will be
announced folowing the grading of the
papers. Honorable mention will be
given students whoso papers are judged
Sick Slips Discontinued
The students of Senior high school
can no longer procure sick slips to
leave school. The privilege of leaving
school has been abused, and C. W Phil
lips, principal, says there wilt be no
more sick slips printed. Central junior
high school, with an enrollment of over
1,300, has only one-fourth as many sick
slips as the Senior high with an en
rollment of 1,296. Central junior high
had only 45 sick slips; Senior high had
201. Of the 201 slips issued, 118 were
given to boys, one-half of which were
given to a very few. This comparison
would indicate that Central junior
high school students are more capable
of taking care of themselves than Sen
ior high grown-ups.
