Second Annual Gathering.
The theme of the second annual Guil
ford County Older Boys’ conference
held at the West Market Methodist
church and at the Y. M. C. A. wms
“What shall I do with my life?”
The morning session began at the
“Y” with the registration of the boys
and a meeting of the Hi-Y leaders and
discussion groups. At 10:00 o’clock
C. W. Phillips, chairman of the boys’
work, opened the meeting. Mayor Paul
Lindley delivered the address of wel
come which was followed by the devo
tional message and prayer by the Rev.
H. Grady Hardin. The dean of the
Tmiversity of North Carolina, Dr. Fran
cis Bradshaw, gave the initial morn
ing address; and the Rev. Allen Frew
pronounced the benediction.
Luncheon was served at the “Y”
where Mrs. C-lyde A. Milner talked on
“Boys and Girls in Relation to Suc
In the afternoon the boys chose their
own discussion groups, after which a
group photograph was made. For rec
reation the delegates either attended
the Greensboro-Raleigh baseball game
or the Carolina theater.
The eveiring session was presided
over by Rev. Frew. After a short busi
ness meeting Dean Milner spoke on
“What Shall I Do About It.” “Some
Elements of a Successful Life,” was the
topic used by Dr. Gilbert T. Roe, pro
fessor of Christian Doctrine at Duke
The following officers were elected:
President, Edward Jeffress; vice-presi

Dr. Thomas R. Foust, superintend

average daily attendance increase of
1,465 students over last year’s aver
age for Guilford county.
The rural schools are leading High
Point and Greensboro in attendance,

schools and average follow: Greens
boro, membership 10,723 and average
9,477; rural schools, membership
13,277 and average attendance 12,289,
and High Point, membership, 8,582
and average 7,662.

In a recent interview of the Boys’
home economics class a High Life re
porter found put two very important
facts. The reason the boys take home
economics, and a dish which is very
good but non-fattening. A. W. Greeson
was the informer for the first fact.
He said, “The women are getting lazy.
I figure if I ask one to marry me I
won’t get anything to eat and I can’t
stand that. My home economics will
take care of that point.” A. W.’s cake
is what you call very good and there is
no doubt that he will never go hungry
on account of “these lazy women.” Some
of the boys are not quite so sure of
Ben Fortune remarks, “I don’t know
whether I can cook water or not. I am
afraid I might burn it.”
Roy Wherley, constant hunter for a
diet to reduce his bulk, told the re
porter of a recent discovery: “The other
day one of the boys cooked up a dish
he called cheese fondu. I looked at
the recipe, tasted the finished cookery,
and was very surprised to find it of
a real good taste,,for the contents were
very simple. I brought out my micro
scope and started hunting for those
little fat particles which cause all my
trouble. What I found was a greater
surprise than the first one. In this
cheese mixture I found so little fat that
it is just enough to keep a person
healthy. I think I will start an eigh
teen day diet consisting of only cheese
The boys have entertained the men
faculty this year with no deaths follow
ing, and quite a few smiles. Girls, start

Instead of the usual separate ban

Each girl introduced her parents, and
afterwards everybody joined in sing
The girls were not satisfied wTth
Mrs. Clyde A. Milner’s talk at the So

more. So, by i-equest, Mrs. Milner spoke
to the Girl Reserves at one of the reg

The Girl Reserves were invited to
attend the home-coming of the Y. W.

Three shorthand students, repre

home a, silver cup from the recent
typewriting and shorthand contests
at the University of North Caro
lina sponsored by the North Caro

university extension division.. The
cup was given for first place in the
shorthand division. Three, members
of the advanced class took third

The words were dictated at the

Members of the winning team
are: Helen Short, Juanita Cox, and
Margaret Huggins. Those of the

Frances Dean, and Hazel Nisbet.
Mrs. Zoe Hogsette, head of the com

Rebecca Jeffress entertained the
seniors from 4 to 6 with a kid party
at the Greensboro Country club. , The
affair occurred after kid day at school;
all still wore their costumes.
For the first hour the dignified seniors
reverted to their not-so-distant child
hood and played games suitable to their
costumes: Drop-the-Handkerchief, Blind
Man’s Buff, Farmer in the Dell, and
other similar games were .played with
The second hour the seniors danced
to the music of Bob England and his
Englishmen. With their childish chat
ter and their dolls and teddybears, they
presented a ludicrous picture.
Afterwards pink lemonade, striped
candy, and other refreshments were
served. Among the decorations gas
balloons were in evidence.

The .student government plan came
into use at G. H. S. in 1922. At first
the school had no other use of it than
for discipline, and it was not until
1926 and 27 that really constructive
projects were undertaken by the organ
ization. Discipline from that time has
ceased to be a main factor of the coun
About three or four years ago there
started a growing feeling of discon
tentment and criticism about the coun
cil. Students began to feel that, the
council could “do the job,” and they
had no part in it.^.
This is what Jack Nowlin and his
council used for the foundation of their
program. Jack was the candidate of
the people, and he has tried to bring
hack th6 government to the people.
Using the Goodwill Student Council as
a medium, he has been able to sell the
idea of student government to the stu
The council in carrying out its plan
has presented the Goodwill idea
through chapel programs and the frank
presentation to the student of eA’ery
proposed plan, through Jack’s pleasing,
happy personality the idea has been
carried out in a fine way.
Next year’s council will ha:ve the
foundation layed by the Goodwill Coun
cil to build on; without it it would be
almost impossible to continue the stu

It is the policy of the office that stu

prestige just as long as it is carried
on in a fair, fine acceptable way.

MY KEYS UNLOCK MORE THAN
I have occupied an important place
at G. H. S. for a long while. My home
is on the platform in the music room,
and many have been my pleasures here.
I have appreciated the touch of sure
fingered pianists and have responded to
their loving caress and given to them
my best tones.
I have been played to death while a
jazz queen entertained the gang at
lunch time, or as the accompaniment
while many light hearts and feet
tripped the light fantastic.
Best of all I have responded to the
touch of our best loved musician as he
directed the choruses in the teaching of
contest numbers. After the first chords
I have listened for the burst of voice
that would rise and soar, then fade
Proud? I’ll say I am, for after all I
am responsible, in a small way, for all
the first places and honors brought in
from contests and concerts.
