Greetings From Classroom Teachsrs
To Teachers of Morth ices tern District
The student body of Senior high wishes to extend its welcome to the
teachers of the Northwestern District.
We hope that they will enjoy their stay in Greensboro and while here
look over our buildings and see where we go daily for our education. We
want them to visit our auditorium. Our radio department, located in the
science building, is another place of interest in the school. Here we send
messages to all parts of the United States and receive them also. Our cafe
teria is the most important place to us, for this is where we are served real
meals for very little money.
We hope the teachers will visit us again in the near future.
The Greensboro Associarion c: Class-
rcom Teachers vas creared in order
:o provide an asency through which
teachers could act as a ‘uruhed group
in protecting their own interest and
in working tor the best interest o:
students and school. It is strictly a
classroom-teacher organization. its
membership being limited to those
whose major work and interest are
round in the classroom.
Regular officers of the organization
are elected by popular vote of the
teachers and they, with a group of
two representatives from each of four
main divisions of our school system,
namely. Senior high. Junior high. Ele
mentary, and Primary compose the
Aims to Prevent Political Promotions
During the period of nearly two
years in which it has existed this or
ganization has been instrumental in
collecting and presenting to the teach
ers facts relating to school economy
and teachers’ salaries. It has tried to
I prevent selfish political and business
leaders in the city, county, and, state
from promoting a program of false
economy that would cause the teach
ers to suffer unjustly and cripple the
efficiency of our school system.
One of the major obj'ectiv^es of the
Association has been to foster a spirit
of professional pride and high stand
ard of ethics for its members. Only
teachers who have a real interest and
pride in their profession have become
members and they are trying to build
for themselves a profession whose high
ideals, valuable service, and ciwe
leadership will merit the support and
appreciation of the leaders who have
been wise enough to realize that only
an enlightened and informed group of
teachers can render effective aid in
the fight against political graft that
.is forcing teachers to bear an unjust
share of the indebtedness incurred by
over-expansion and reckless expendi
tures by the various departments of
our city, county, and state govern

Purpose of Teachers
V^hat are teachers.'' Where do we class them, as guaras, guides or anuhals."
Teachers are real human beings. They think and reason as a teacher
should. They are the pupils’ guides who lead them through the dark.
Teachers guide and direct the student over the stumbling blocks, and
tell them where the next block is to be encountered so that the student will
not stumble and fall. Teachers are really our crutches or lights, for they
guide, direct, and show us the things we do not know. We lean upon them
for assistance and direction.
Perseverance Wins Fame
Just exactly 440 years ago Christopher Columbus, through endurance,
bravery, and perseverance, found a new land, a new world; this land is now
known as the West Indies. Columbus and his crew in three small vessels,
sailed on and on, through storms and mutiny, but perseverance was his. He
found this land not for himself, but for you and me. In memory of this
daring, we commemorate Columbus Day, October 12. We hail him as the
discoverer of America and a great explorer.
The most important student activities in any school center is the pub
This is especially true of G. H. S. Our publications gather in and reflect
back to us the literary, athletic, dramatic, and musical events and achieve
ments which take place. Thus, the publications are actually the center of
our school life, and consequently should receive our constant attention and
When the football team gains a victory, we read about it in High Life.
Through Homespun, we become acquainted with the better class of prose
and poetry which the student body produces. If a member of this school
has an interesting experience, or achieves outstanding success in sorrie phase
of school work, we may obtain a detailed account of it from High Life.
It is obvious that a school without any publications would be lacking in
one of the best possible means of keeping the student body interested iri
school and active in the different types of extra-curricular work. In fact the
eyes of the student body would be gone.
We can’t get along without our magazine and our newspaper. Let’s see
to it that we keep on having them.
High Life For Better
Times are bad, and the further we progress the rougher the road and
the harder is the incline; but always with a little more energy the top may
be reached. Everyone who is a real G. H. S. citizen should stand by its
newspaper and let all know that the old spirit of Senior high is still aglow
and can burst forth to flames.
For many years our paper has won prizes throughout the nation. To
carry on, it must have the support of all. So lead on. High Life, for better.
John Ademy Wins Scholarship
We congratulate John Ademy. A few years ago he entered our school,
a shy and unassuming lad. At that time he gave no thought to music.
Then, out of sheer curiosity, he joined the school glee club. In a little while
his curiosity became interest. This interest that John has shown in his music
has been growing. It carried him through four major parts in our high
school operas, and now, as a climax, John has just won a scholarship to the
Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore.
Had not John been determined in his objective, and had he not been
willing to work, we doubt if he would be where he is today.

Hallowe’en has its origin -with the

In ancient times, on this day the
Druids held a great autumn festival
in thanksgiving for the harvest. Nuts
and apples were used in the festival to
represent the winter store of fruits.
Apple ducking and roasting of nuts
are survivals of this ancient custom.
For a long time it was the custom
to light bonfires on Hallowe’en. This
custom has been abolished.

“THE TEN COMMANDMENTS’’
By Warwick Deeping
Warwick Deepii^ has never written
with more/>^'>'^o’*.*4HikdiTio' of .tears
and happiness thifn in this, his most
recent novel. The story itself is that
perfect expression of love and courage,
which has made him a favorite writer
among thousands of readers.
It tells of the strange Nicholas Bon-
thorn, bachelor and wounded ex-sol
dier, who asked nothing of life but
beauty and the time to care for it; and
of the lovely Rachel Buck, who regard
ed life as simply a time for merriment
and jazz. But fate played a bitter
trick on her, and then she learned that
the wild thrills she had always sought
were merely obscui’e compared with
the sacred things which make life
worth living. From the time of the
great turning point in her life the
story is told in a spirit of reverence
and beauty unequalled in Mr. Deeping’s

CATTLE OR STUDENTS, OR BOTH?
What is the difference between a
heard of stampeding cattle and a
group of students released for lunch?
There is none! As the thirsty cattle
stampede when water is near, so do
the hungry students when the smell
of food is wafted to their widely ex
panded nostrils. If one of the herd
begins to run the rest follow, not un
like the ways of the students. Stamp
ing, mowing down those in front, the
mob rushes on. Which? The cattle
or the students? Both! Remember

Squirrel Disappointed at School
The squirrels are now getting as bad
as dogs and cats, that is so far as
coming to school is concerned. Un
like pupils, dogs and other stray an
imals think Senior high is a place of
enjoyment and pleasure, the reason is
that they are always kindly treated
and petted. Squirrels are quite choice
about their hours at school. They al
ways choose lunch periods.
One day at the 12:30 lunch one of
these small, gray, bushy tail animals
made his visit by climbing straight up
the side of the auditorium as if to get
a good look at things. In a very
strange manner he ran along the edge
of the roof and finally descended and
