‘HIGH” LIFE, DECEMBER 20, 1920.
LECTURE COURSE PLANNED
IN SENIOR ECONOMICS
The class in Economics VII has been
woi-king very hard to learn something of
the purposes and work of labor unions. It
is ah axiom with them that they must have
both sides of a question before they form
an opinion. On Tuesday, Dec. 14th, Mr.
Hodgkin, of the local Typographical Un
ion, very interestingly presented to them
the side of the union. On Thursday, Deo.
16th, Mr. Stone gave a very clear presen
tation of the manufacturer’s viewpoint.
These lectures were particularly interest
ing, as there are a number of students in
the class who are going out for the State
wide debate on Open Shop.
A courseof lectures on other pressing
questions of the day has been arranged for
this class. Some of the subjects are: The
Federal Reserve System, The Textile In
dustry in North Carolina, The Lumber In
dustry in North Carolina, The Tax System
and others. These lectures will be deliv
ered by local business men and will bring
the practical side of their subject before
the class. '

The Stenographic Department of the
6. H. S. with an enrollment of 40 pupils,
is making excellent progress this year.
At present each pupil is working very
enthusiastically to become a member of
the trio that will take part in the State
Typewriting contest, that will be held
some time in the spring.
Miss Lois Torbitt, who has charge of
this department, feels confident that if the

There are two small offices, and a jumble
With rooms fixed along inside
Here is where we hold all the juvenile
And the hosts of knowledge ride.
There is a spacious room called the chap
With row's and rows of seats.
Here W'e sit through study periods blue
And the parent teachers association
There are also two annexes in the rear
Quite cold when the wintry winds
But all this however, to the “Freshies” is
For this is their first year, yon know.
Now' about the teachers, there are quite
Almost every size and kind.
And if tried to describe all of them to you
You’d think me out of my mind.
There’s the one who instructs Latin, whom
all Juniors love
And that bewitching smile she wears.
There’s another whose piercing eyes, sees
everything you’ve done
And never a one does she spare.
Then tall and Saxon-like the man appears
With that “Who am I to pass any
And causes many a pupil angry tears
As they try to study that fateful book
Then comes into view that fair and square-
Whom all her pupils adore.
And to study English none of them mind
‘Cause studying for her isn’t a bore.
There is a certain room on every lip.
And the teacher says chemistry isn’t
It’s all because they won the scholarship,
But that’s a piece of luck they had.
There’s one who of bugs and endless col
Thinks lizards are “cute” so they say
She enjoys the dissecting of a rattle snake
And considers it only play.
Here now, I’m making my story too
Still these fleeting visions came,
And indeed, ’tis an endless rediculous
Enough to put the janitor on the
‘ ‘ bum. ’ ’

But W'hen this curious mixture is put in
And the ingredients begin to boil
You can bet your hat we’ve a jolly lot
And go happily about as we toil!
Miss Killingsworth’s English class
was having its Armistice Day pro
gram and Doris Stinnett said: “We
will now have a poem by Lucille Pettit,
title ‘Behind the Guns!’ ”
Roy B.—“That’s all right; I had rather
be behind them than in front. ’ ’
“Ah, I observe that the floor has been
recently painted,” appreciattively said
the Presiding Elder. “Tell me, how did
you manage to achieve that unique grain;
effect ? ” ,
‘ ‘ I didn’t pay no special attention, ’ ’ re-
lolied Gap Johnson, of Rumpus, Arkansas,
but as nigh as I noticed, wife sorter clash
ed a can of paint around and then the
children drug the eats bavk and forth
acrost it for a spell.”
Doris Stinnett to David Carson in type
writing: “Dave, do you have to move your
feet to write?”
Yvonne to Doris, after looking at his
feet: “I don’t see how he ever moves
them! ’ ’
