Greensboro Splits Even In
Two Games Out o/ Town
Defeat Administered by Charlotte, 13-0. IVinston
Again Downed, 8-0
On Friday, Oct. 29, Greemsboro journey
ed to Charlotte for a game with Charlotte
High School. Greensboro was very confi
dent and Charlotte was very doubtful of
winning. It was evidently an off day for
Greensboro, though, as she did not display
her usual form and seemed to lack the
force necessary to get going. Greensboro
was somewhat crippled by injuries, which
probably accounted for some of this. Char
lotte outplayed Greensboro in the first half,
but Greensboro easily outplayed Charlotte
in the last half, although they lacked the
force to shove the ball across. Ballard
starred for Greensboro, making long gains
repeatedly. Dorr and Bierman were
Charlotte’s best ground gainers.
First quarter—Greensboro received the
kick-off and w'as stopped without a gain.
Three line bucks netted 9 yards, with a
fourth effort giving first down. Two more
efforts at the line yielded 6 yards, with the
third try going for a 3 yard loss, when
Malloy slipped through and nailed the
runner. The ball was punted to the 40-
yard line, with Charlotte returning 5
yards. On the first play Bierman ripped
the line for 7 yards, and Dorr got through
on the next play for 20 yards, tripping and
falling with almost a clear field ahead. Af
ter two plunges for short gains, Bierman
bucked the ball over for another first
down.
Dorr made 9 yards and Hunter went for
first down. Dorr ad ded 6 yards more,
and Bierman circled left end for a touch
down. Mallory kicked goal.
Greensboro took the ball on her 23-yard
line and advanced it 10 yards. After hit
ting the line tor 3 yards. Query sifted
through on the next play and threw
Greensboro for a 6-yard loss. Greensboro
punted out of bounds on her own 47-yard
line. Two bucks netted 8 yards, then the
ball was handed to Bierman again, who
made first dowm. Seven yards was the to
tal for three bucks, and Bierman then
made it first down again. After taking 5
yards from Greensboro an attempt at a
forward pass was intercepted and Greens
boro had the ball on her 18-yard line.
Greensboro got 5 yards in three trials just
as the quarter ended.
Second quarter—It was Greensboro’s
ball on her own 23-yard line. Mallory
broke through the line and blocked an ef
fort at a punt. Charlotte recovered and
held the ball on the 8-yard line. After tak
ing six yards in three downs, Bierman

Girls, today the world needs literary
people—people who know how to speak
and how to express themselves clearly and
forcefully. What is going to help us send
out from G. H. S. the president of the
United States and the governor of North
Carolina? Why, the girls’ and boys’ lit
erary societies.
In order to make our girls more fitted
for public and social life, in order to es
tablish a good, wholesome, sisterly feeling
between all the girls, to secure their places
in this world, and to help them to speak,
read and conduct meetings anywhere un
hesitatingly with never a fear or dislike,
we decided to organize ad enjoy a girls’
literary society.
The girls’ society has for its officers: Es
telle L. Mendenhall, president; Alice Way-
nick, vice president; Helen Glenn Rankin,
secretary; Catherine Grantham, treasurer.
All of these officers are willing to talk to
any of the girls about the society.
The girls’ society is divided into five
groups, each group with a chairman, vice
chairman and a committee of four for
each group.
Room 205 had an unusually good time
when they elected their officers. They
are as follows:
President—George Taylor.
Vice President—Norman Cooper.
Treasurer—Walter Clement.
Secretary—Billy Vanstory.
