We were greatly pleased with the won
derful High School spirit that the Char
lotte boys and girls showed when the foot
ball squad went to Charlotte.
North Carolina as a whole was very
much disappointed in the news of the elec
tion. But as she has always been, our
state was true to her party.
As true Americans it is not the party
that we are pulling for, it is the govern
ment. No one man or group of men can
make a country prosper without the aid of
all of those in the country.
Now it is or duty to back the newly
elected and do our best to make this coun
try prosperous. We must do as they request
and not as we think things should be run
—for our country is by the people.
THE RED CROSS
What has meant so much to the stricken
people of Europe, and what meant so much
to our boys in France? The Red Cross
was the great thing that our boys looked
forward to when they were wounded and
in trouble. In the same manner the strick
en people of Europe are looking to .the Red
Cross for aid this year. This means that
the Red Cross is looking to you and to mo
We were glad to give to the Red Cross
when our bo3’s were in France. Ever^’
home had a Red Cross banner in the win
dow. Now' that our boj’S are home does it
mean that w'e will eease to give? If we
are true to our name of Amerieans we will
support the Red Cross this j'ear as much as
ever, for it is our poliej' to help others.
WHAT IS A HOLIDAY?
AVhat is a holiday? The current opin
ion is that for every special occasion we
should have a holiday to go out in the
streets and have a big time. Take this mat
ter of Armistice day, for instance. If the
city were planning to have a big celebra
tion and many features that would really
be beneficial to the students, we should
have a holidaj'.
This day is one that should be sacred in
the minds of all of us.
It mark sthe day that the slaughtering
of our friends and brothers ended. The
vva yto celebrate such a day as this is to
have a program at school that will inspire
us to a greater and nobler idea of the
meaning of such a day.
Are W'e coming to school to study and
w'ork or to have tw'o or three holidays a
month? We must have a certain number
of days of work to complete the year, so
w'hj' not have them as they come instead of
staj’ing in the summer?
To the Editor-in-Ghief of “High” Life:
Allow me, please, to congratulate you
and your staff most heartily upon your
first issue of High Life. I have read it
with both pleasure and pride.
If you do, and I am sure you will, live
up to your high aim, “Keeping Alive a
Better High School Spirit,” and in addi
tion arousing a more general and wide-
aw'ake interest among the parents in the
work and other activities of the school,
.vou will be rendering a most valuable ser
vice in meeting a real need in our school
"With best wishes for j'our success, I am.
Most sincerely j'ours,
Mrs. E. Poole.

THE POLITICAL AND ECONOMICAL
EFFECT OF THE NATIONAL
ELECTION ON OUR COUNTRY
The national election alfects our coun
try at this particular time on accoimt of
the League of Nations, although the League
of Nations is not the exclusive hobby of the
Democrats. It is not properly in the
realm of party politics, anyw'ay. The Re
publican party has talked against the
League of Nations, and want to do away
w'ith it. Now', since Harding has been
elected, they w'ill either have to accept it
or reject it. However, if they do accept it
they will be contradicting themselves in
every statement that they have heretofore
made in regard to the league. On the oth
er hand, if they do not accept it, we will be
without a league of any kind for at least
tw'o years ,and probably very much longer,
because none of the countries that are in
the league can join any other league that
might be formed for two years, since they
have pledged themselves not to withdraw
from the present league until two years
have expired. Then it would probably be
two years before another league could be
formed, which will be hard to get the peo
ple intere.sted in if the present league fails.
This is w'hat our new president has to faee.
Great responsibility rests upon him. He
has to fulfill the pledges made when Amer
ica entered the war. It may be by this
league or some other league, but it must be
some kind of league of nations. If these
promises are not fulflllel, then our heroes
have died in vain.
The election affects the economic condi
tions of our country because the voters are
more interested in the high cost of living
than they are in the League of Nations.
The majority of people know very little
about the League of Nations, but every one
is w'ell acquainted w'ith the high cost of
Election excitement may have had some
thing to do with the recent business de
pression, but the principal reason is the un
settled condition of the world as a result of
The U. S. need not dread a panic now
because the taxes of this country are small
er than those of any other country and the
currency is sounder. The American dollar
is nearer the gold standard than the Eng
lish pound. The national debt is smaller
per capita, the gold supply is greater, and
there are bumper crops all over the United
