There is some talk of a committee being
appointed to examine the books of all or

They lost in Monroe by hard luck. We
have always heard it said that if a team
fought a clean fight and lost they had won
a victory in one sense of the word if not in
another.. We are glad to hear people who
saw tlie game say that it was a game of
pure sports from start to finish.
We are glad to see that the whole school
is taking so much interest in athletics.
Never before in the history of G. H. S. has
athletics meant so much to the life of the
school. The football of the past and the
basket ball at the present are the two main

The interest in the basket ball has already

The Seniors have at last selected and
ordered their class rings. The seal to be
used on the rings was decided upon six
weeks ago, but the style of the ring was

The two rings were put before the class, of
which one was to be selected. ..lost every
one chose the hammered Roman gold ring,
wli’ch is truly a very handsome design.
The ring bears the letters G. H. S., at
tractively designed, wdth a lamp of knowl
edge in the center of the ring and the fig
ures 1921 at the bottom.
The rings were ordered from the Chas.
H. Elliot Co., of Philadelphia, w'ho has so
fargiven us a very good deal.

Some of the A class girls volunteered to
make the banner as best they could with
