Reidsville and Winston Outclassed By
Overwhelming Scores.
The Seniors have definitely decided to
have an auunal. Prices and Btyles have
been investigated and the class of ’21
feels that it can and must revive this cus
With this in view the staff has been
elected and it is hoped it will prove an
able one.
The staff is as follows:
Editor-in-chief Bertram Brown
Business Manager Allen Stainback
Art Editor Bonnie Enoch
Literary Editor Mildred Singer
Senior Editor Leta Shields
Club Editor Alice Wayniek
Humor Editor Hoyt Boone-
Athletic Editor William Clary
Photographic Editor James Poole
Social Editor Catherine Armstrong
Each of these Editors has the privilege
of choosing an assistant. These assistants
may come from any class and it is expect
ed that they will be mostly Juniors since
the Juniors will be editing an annual next
The Seniors hope to make the annual a
great success, but it will be impossible to
do this unless every class and every impd
will help them. The annual is not entirely
a Senior production. Ever3' class in the
High school should be and will be repre
sented in the ’21 annual.
Greensboro V^otes Million For
Schools By Majority of 729
Only Fifteen Trying Out For Positions on
Debating Teams.
The preliminary ddbate to choose one
team for the state-wide triangular wlil
be held February 11th. Several of the
strong debaters are at work and there is
much rivalry between the high school class
es and session rooms. Everybody wants a
debater to come from his room. We al.
need to gft behind the deoiite. Asheville
and Winston are no means opponents, and
Greensboro High would be very proud of
a vietoi’y over them. Two hundred North
Carolina high schools want the Ayeock
Memorial cup. The triangular debate is
the event of the school year in North Caro
lina and we are anxious to make a credit
able showing.
We ddbate Winston there, Asheville here
this year. Asheville holds the present
state championship and will put up a
heroic fight to keep it. We have a con
test with Winston often enough to know
that they are foemen worthy of our steel
so there is an excellent opportunity for a
good fight.
About fifteen students have entered the
delbate. A good deal of material is on
hand and the library is being kept open
every afternoon for the debaters to work.

The girl’s glee club is working hard and
doing good work. Several new members
have been admitted to the club and we are
delighted to have additional voices.
The glee club was asked to sing at the
Parent Teacher’s Association at Cypress
Street school, which they were glad to do.
They were cordially welcomed by the par-
rons of Cypress Street, and enjoyed be
ing with them. This was the glee club’s
first appearance away from the High
By a majority of 729 the registered
voters of Greensboro authorized the board
of education to issue bonds in the sum of
.1)1,000,000, with which to provide adequate
educational facilities for the school chil
dren of the city. Only 27 votes were oast
against the issue, although 269 of those
registered failed to cast a ballot and there
by caused their vote to toe registered as
against the proposition.
Ther was a total registration of 1,321, of
which 75 were in Morehead precinct and
570 in Gilmer; and 1,052 of the qualified
voters visited the polls and in a positive
manner expressed their sentiments con
cerning the question of better school equip
ment. The total number of votes cast for
the bonds was 1,025. Only 661 affirm
ative votes were needed to carry the elec
The figures for the two precincts are as
follows: Morehead—registered, 751; vot
ing 603; for, 593; against 10. Gilmer
precinct—registered 570; voting, 449; for,
432; against, 17.
The women were slightly in the majority
as to the number who registered; and al
though no accurate check was made to
determine the relative number of men and
women voting, it is considered safe .to say
that the majority of those who voted were
women, although the men were interested
in the election and voted and with their
automobiles assisted in bringing quite a
number of women to the polls. It is stat
ed, furthermore, that not one of the wom
en who visited the polls cast a ballot against
the bonds.
Before 12 o’clock leaders in the fight
for the schools foresaw victory, althougn
slightly less than the required 661 ballots
had been east for them.
Members of the school board, as well as
the others—men and women, who helped
make the issue a success and place Greens
boro before the country as a city that re
gards her children albove streets or other
progressive measures—were happy when
J. Norman "Wills and E. D. Broadhurst,
members of the board who have taken the
lead in the fight, were particularly de
lighted with the handsome majority polled
for the schools.
Mr. "Wills, chairman of the board, stated
that he regarded the successful outcome
of the day’s voting as the dawn of a new
day in the educational history of Greens
boro and the state. The board plans to
spend the $1000,000 in constructing, re
modeling, .and equipping school buildings
in the city and purchasing additional sites.
Oh, Exams how can I face you?
But what else can I do?
A “nightmare” you are to me.
But one can’t be exempt on “C.”
