For A Better G H. S.
GREENSBORO HIGH SCHOOL. MARCH II. 1921
WHO WANTS TO BE
WHO AND WHY
“A man’s grasp should exceed his reach
or what’s a heaven for?”
What class aspires to be the leading
class of the school? Tire Junior Class.
They are the Juniors now, but next year,
they will be Seniors! The leaders of the
school! It is ever t-oo elirly too aspire to do
great things ? To want to be something;
to want to be bigger and better than the
ordinary cla,ss. The class that wants to
do these things, is the engine type of class,
for, in order to do this, they must take
the lead in all the activities of the school.
What have the Juniors done that shows
that they are the enjine type of class?
They have organized in to class and
as the result, they have the most-wide-
awake organization in the school. Their
Motto—“Play the Game.”^—shows what
they want to be. They want to play the
game fairly and squarelyl You never
find the Juniors shirking their duty. They
are dependable to the last one of them.
, They are the enjine type and the enjine
type will some day lead the school.
In order to lead the school next year,
the Junior Class has given their hearty
support and co-operation in “putting ov
er” all the new enterprises of the school.
Next year, being Seniors, they must start
most of the enter-prises.
Who leads the school in school spirit?’
The Junior Class! Well what is school
spirit? It is the “backing Up” of school
activities—athletics, debating, and schol
In athletic—whenever there is a game,
who gives the best cheer? Who has the
most representatives at the game? If the
team is deafeated what class takes the de
feat cheerfully and^ generously ? In other
words, “takes it like a man?” The Ju
niors! They do this so that next year,
when they are the example of the school,
they can show what Greensboro High
School spirit is.
On the debating team, two of the de
baters are Juniors. The' other two are
to represent the Senior class in the debate.
Seniors. Next year, someone will have
to take their places. Are they not training
now to do this.
Who posse.ss the scholarship shield now?
The Junior Class! They want to keep
it too. Next year they want to' keep it
the whole year. They are not selfish,
but only aspiring to the heights.
Whei-e the engine leads, the freight cars
follow. What class is the Engine? The
Junior class wants to be next year. Be
‘ ‘ A man’s grasp should exceed his reach,
or what’s a heaven for?”

Many qualities are needed to make up a
good High School. The mixture of school
spirit and enthusiasm commonly called
“pep,” is an important thing. It is easy
to have “pep” at a school game when the
cheer leader is urging you on to yell, and
you are so proud of your team. You just
can’t keep still. It’s a little thing to feel the
same little thrill about writing a theme or
outlining the history lesson. It is no
burden at all to clap and cheer at a “pep”
meeting, in chapel, but it is sometimes a
terrible effort to even vote at a class meet
ing, to say nothing of making motions
and carrying on discussions.
Originality is the soul of “pep.” In
one High School the Seniors advertised
their class play in a unique way. The
stage in their auditorium was very large
and they had curtain like a theatre. Af
ter the principal’s announcements, a
noise was heard behind the curtain that
resembled an airoplane. When the cur
tain rose a-Ford dashed on the stage filled
to over-flowing with Seniors and all who
couldn’t get in followed behind on tri-
LEXINGTON AND CHURCHLAND
G. H. S. 38—Lexington 26
Friday evening, February 25, G. H. S.
defeated Lexingtn High’s at Guilford by
the score of 38 to 26. This victory gave
G. H. S. a total of eleven consecutive vic
At first it looked as if Lexington. would
put G. II. S. out of the championship series
but soon the G. H. S. boys turned the
tide; This was done by the excellent
guarding of Ballard and Koenig, and the
ability of Greensboro forwards, Poole and
Britton, to put the ball in the basket.
Wlien the first half ended, the score
was fifteen for G. H. S. and nine for L.
H. S. In the last half Greensboro kept
enough ahead to insure a victory for them
Despite the fact Lexington did not have
enough of “stuff” to defeat the Greens
boro team, they did do some pretty pass
ing, and showed that they had been coach
Hunt- for Lexington, showed fine form,
while Poole and Koenig starred for
G. H. S. 29—Churchland 19
Greensboro adds another victory to her
list by winning from Churchland, Friday
night. This makes a total of 12 straight
victories the local boys have won. It was
a fast exciting game throughout. Both
-teams showed good teamwork and signs
of good coaching. The Greensboo team
was a little superior both in passing and
shooting which is largely due to the fine
coaching of Mr. York.
The shooting of Poole was excellent, and
Britton was there to do his part also.
The .shooting of that “Ballard boy” was
done in no showy fashion. When it
came to passing the whole team was right
there. The faithful watchfulness of Koe
nig in the enemies territory, kept tbein
from making any more goals than they
did. The final score was 29 to 19 in fa
vor of Greensboro. The line up was:
cycles and kiddie carts. All were dressed
in the most ridiculous costumes. This
parade circled the stage once or twice and
then the Ford dashed forward as if to
jump over into the student body stopping
just on the brink. Then they all got out
and gathered around the piano and sang
parodies written to popular tunes, inviting
everybody to the play. You may be sure
everybody wanted to see the play if this
was an exhibition of what was to follow.
The boy or girl worth while is the one
who throws him-self into everything he
does. After all, to be enthusiastic about
everything is to enjoy life, and to enjoy
life is the only way to live.

Ask a Junior!
GIRLS TEAM CAPTURES
TWO GOOD GAMES
Charlotte—Davidson Trip ■
We left Greensboro about 12:45 Friday
afternoon, February 25, for Charlotte.
We had looked forward to this trip for
about a month and now that we were on
our way we were nearly thrilled to death.
There were eight players, Nellie Ir
vin, Carlotta Johnson, Elzie Fluharty,
Katie Whitley, Margaret Meyers, Helen
Clapp, and myself (Dbrris Stinnett.)
Catherine Armstrong our manager, and
Miss Morrow were also along. Mife Dry,
our coach w-as to meet us in Concord and
of course ’sve could hardly wait until we
got to that small town.
About 3:15 -w'e got to Concord and
there was Miss Dry at the station but she
informed us that her sister was still criti
cally ill and that she couldn’t leave her.
Ilowevei-, she said that she would probably
come to Charlotte that night to the game.
Of course, we were all much disappointed
that she couldn’t go with us but we hid our
disappointment with smiles.
The conductor that runs on the train
between Greensboro and Charlotte always
amuses our bunch by calling out the sta
tions in such a manner as; “Charlotte
next stop. Change trains for Davidson,
etc. Get all your baggage together and
don’t forget where you’re going.” When
we pulled into Charlotte, he gave us a
frown because some of us had made some
remarks about his calling out the sta
tions, but we soon got him in a good humor
by telling him where we were from. He
seemed to think anybody who came from
Greensboro was all right.
We reached Charlotte about 4 o’eloek.
The Charlotte girls met us and we were
quickly assigned to the different homes.
Maude and I were to stay together at the
home of the Roses out near Meyer’s
Park. They took us to ride all over Char
lotte that afternoon and gave us a mighty
good supper that night.
The game was called for 8:15 but didn’t
begin until about 8:30. When it did be
gin it was full of pep from start to finish.
Once during the first half the score was
9-4 in favor of Charlotte. Then the locals
