Is this a motorcycle speedway out front?
Why swipe a perfectly innocent jani

Hold steady! Ready! And we will
soon go! Exams are looming on the hori

Why not praetiee now? Why aren’t we
just as much Seniors, Juniors, Sophs and
Freshies now as we will be in college?
Start the ball rolling!
Soon we will hear the onee familiar
noise of the Boys Glee Club practicing.
They have re-organized and are ready
for work again.
We will have to admit that the two
annexes do not look as barns any more.
With the gray paint and green trimming,
they look a real home. What a transform-
i'Jon has taken place dtiring the holidays.
There were many handshakes and fare
wells about the school Monday and Tues
day after the holidays. Many of the
former G. H. S. boys and girls were here
to tell their friends goodbye, before re
turning to their place of higher learning.
It seemed a pity that the boys should
lose the three games during the holidays
after winning the first three of the season.
We all feel that the main reason for this

try to see how long we can stay awake has

Last Saturday morning one of the fresh
man hiking clubs walked out several miles
from the city for breakfast in the open
air. The January breezes put everyone
in good spirits, and served to put a keen
edge on the appetites of those who enjoy
ed the fun.
Hiking Clubs and Hikes
Since school started after the Christmas
holidays, not much interest has been shown
in the Hiking Clubs. They are still alive
and kicking, however, even if they have
not had out a brass band to announce the
fact. Miss Rudd, The Junior Leader, is
planning some big times for her club, and
wants to have full attendance on all oc
casions. Those of you who have not join
ed need not dispair for they are still open
for membership. All of us stood behind
the football boys and we are still, there
when it comes to girls and boys Basket
ball. Hiking is as much a school activity
as either of these and it should be support
ed the same.
Johnny: “Grandpa, will you make a
noise like a frog?”
Grandpa: “What for, my boy?”
Johnny: “Why, \papa says he will .get
ten thousand dollars when you croak.”—

HOW ABOUT YOUR POSTURE?-
TAKE SWEDISH DRILL
Miss Minish—What does “single tax’
In speaking of our athletics we natural
ly mentoin basket ball, volley ball, tennis,
etc., but sometimes we forget that the girls
have antoher feature of physical activit5r
in our Greensboro High Sehool equally as
important as any of the games with balls.
Every Monday and Wednesday at 3 :30
o’clock a group of our High school girls
meet in the Greensboro College gym
nasium, where they spend forty or fifty
minutes taking well-planned Swedish gym
nastics, playing games and developing
gracefulness of action through folk, danc
ing, not only do these periods afford much
physical development and recreation, but
they also bring a kind of happy mental
recreation that, these girls enjoy all about
the buildings and campus daily, one may
hear such comments as : “I am just crazy
about Swedish Drill;” “I never knew how
to get a correct posture before;” “Yes,
and we have such a good time;” “and we
have a piano too,” etc. Those girls who
are taking no part in athletics are missing
something worthwhile, beneficial and en
joyable—Several new girls have joined the
Drill class since Christmas. If you would
like to join now too, give your name to
Miss Coleman at onee.
Miss Parr—Joe, that explanation is
about as clear as mud.
Joe Grimsley—“Well, it covers the
ground, doesn’t it?
Allan S. (perfectly serious)—Oh, that
is a tax on single men.
