For A Better G H. S.
No 5
Enthusiastic Squad Out With Lots of Pep
G. H. S.’s prospects for a successful sea
son of boys’ basket ball seem to be as good
or better than last year. More than 25
candidates are out every afternoon work-
■ ing for a place on the team. Although
three of last year’s men have been lost,
there is nothing in the way of material to
keep G. H. S. from winning the State
championship in basket ball.
Coach York is going to give everything
he has in the way of basket ball help to
make a winning team, and looking back
over the successful season the football
team has just completed, no one will doubt
Mr. York’s ability to put out a winning
Manager Boone has been working stren
uously on a schedule to cover the most im
portant high schools in N. C. and at the
present time has between 15 and 20 games
arranged. Following is the probable
schedule for 1920-1921;

Triangular Meet With Asheville and Win
ston in March
The prospects for a good team to repre
sent Greensboro High in the Triangular
Debate with WUnston and Asheville seem
very good. The question is, “Resolved,
That American industry should adopt the
policy of the closed shop.’’ A great deal of
interest in the subject has already been
shown and quite a large collection of
pamphlets and newspaper articles on the
subject have been neatly bound and placed
in the library. Two large open shop scrap
books are being kept. One by the classes
in Economics VII and the other by Miss
Killingsworth’s class in Junior English.
The December theme for Economics was
“Labor Unions, What They Are and What
They Do,’’ and the Seniors feel that they
have a slight knowdedge of the subject.
Asheville High won the Aycock Memo
rial cup last year and will put up a hard
fight to hold it. Winston showed herself a
very strong opponent last year, so we shall
have to put up a hard fight. The spirit is
excellent and we feel that we are going to
put out a strong team. The debate com
mittee from the faculty is made up of the
foilowing teachers: Miss Killingsworth and
Minish and Messrs. York and Edwards.
The D. D. D. ’s are planning a delightful
progressive dinner party, to take place on

Every sportsman wlio has sup-,

Sportsmanship is thoroughly satis

although you did not win the Mon
roe game by score, you did win, the
envious distinction of being apprais
ed in the public press as “A bunch
of fine fellows” (which, interpreted,
means a bunch of gentlemen,) and
you did win. The everlasting. glory
of being publicly characterized as

Boys’ Literary Society.
The second general meeting of the Boys ’
Literary Society was held in chapel on
December 3. As no program had been ar
ranged the meeting was turned over to
Messers York and Edwards. Mr. York gave
an interesting talk on the “Helps of So
ciety Work in the School,” and also ex
plained the triangular debate query for the
high schools of North Carolina this year.
Mr. Edwards gave an interesting talk on
many scientific discoveries that have re
cently been made in regard to the human

the questions for a test on the board; “ It’s
no need for me to take this test; nobody

Greensboro High School’s hopes of
meeting Chapel Hill High School in an at
tempt to gain the championship were shat-
tred November 30th, when Monroe won the
deciding game in Western North Carolina
by the close score of 2—0. Never has a
high fotoball game in N. C. ended with
such an odd score and never have two
teams fought for supremacy as these two
teams did on November 30th. It can hard
ly be counted a victory for Monroe and a
defeat for G. H. S.. In the sense of score
it was a victory for Monroe, but in the
sense of football it was a victory for G. H.
S. Every man representing G. H. S. in
Monroe was fighting his very best. It was
a game in which luck was to claim the win
ner. And Monroe had all the luck that
was to be had. G. H. S. entered the game
on visitor grounds, under a downpour of
rain and outweighed by at least five pounds
per man. But G. H. S. does not wish to
hand these obstacles out as her means of
defeat. Her football team showed more
football ability and more fight than Mon
roe, but her luck was on the opposing side,
and the team of warriors representing G.
H. S. had to be content with the fact that
they played clean football and put all that
they had into the last fight they would make
together as a team. The game began with
G. H. S. kicking. Monroe received the ball
