THE TRIAL OF MR. JOHN BARLEY
Mr. John Barleycorn was arrested by
the revenue ofBeers, Mr. Grape-juice and
Mr. Lemonade. He was brought before
the Supreme Court of the United States
for trial. The charge laid against him was,
‘Arrested for making the country drunk.’
Judge Prohibition set at the head of the
court. The lawyer for .Mr. Barleycom
was Mr. Al. K. IIol. The lawyers for the
nation were Mr. Coca Cola and Mr. Green
River. After much discussion the ease
was given to the jury which was ecm’pi.seil
of Mr. Milk Shake, Mr. Chocolate Milk,
Mr. lee Cream Soda and friends of Mr.
J’rihibition. After the jury had thought
on the ease for a long time and .stated both
sides they rendered the verdict that Mr.
John Bai'lej'corn should be banished from
tlie United States forever. There was
great weeping and gnashing of teeth at
this fi'om Mr. Barelyeorn’s friends. Mr.
Moon-shine promised Mr. Barleycorn be-
foi'e he left that he would do all in his
power to comfort the weeping friends.
Mr. Barleycorn packed up and sailed
for Cuba. Many of his friends followed
him and 1 will drop out a hint that you
can find him in Cuba on West Street any
time you wish to. Many of Mr. Barley
corn’s grandchildren and relatives have
wandered back to the U. S. They are Mr.
Shoe Polish, Mr. Wine of Pepsin, Mr.
Grain Alcohol, Mr. Hair Tonic, and Mrs.
A’irginia Dare. These relatives with the
help of Mr. Moon-shine and Mr. Wildcat
Stiff are doing their best to keep alive the
memory of their beloved Mr. John Barley
corn in the minds of the people.
H. C. L. ABOUT TO DIE
Reports from the home of Mr. H. C. L.
indicate that his condition is very serious.
He is very well-known throughout the
United States and has made many enemies
and a few' friends. He has been, since the
beginning of the war, a very prosperous
person and has been very liberal to give
many of his earnings to some of his kins
man. Mr. Profiteer, father of H. C. L.
who has profited most by his son’s success
will probably be very sorry to hear of his
illness. It might here be added that Mr.
Profiteer is also very unpopular. Mr.
Common People w'as recently heard to
have said that he wished that Mr. Profiteer
W'as in his son’s place. Mr. Common Peo
ple isn’t in favor of the mother-in-law of
Mr. H. C. H. Milliner how'ever Mrs. Com
mon People said to be fond of her. Be
fore the w'ar Mr. Manufacturer, Mr. Shoe
Salesman, and Mr. Grocer all brothers of
Mr. 11. C. L., w'ere right agreeable and
seemed to be very fond of Mr. and Mrs.
Common People, but they have since be
come very unreasonable and do not seem
to care for anyone but themselves. We
liope tho that at the death of Mr. H. C. L.,
they w'ill become the same old reasonable
and reliable people. It seems very sad
that Mr. H. C. L. should die w'ith so many
enemies but every one seems to look for-
w'ard to the day when he will be gone. In
fact some people say if he doe.sn’t hur
ry up and die he will be sent to Russia to
visit another of his brothers, Mr. Bolshi-
HONOR ROLL FOR FEBRUARY
Making All A’s.
Senior.s—Mary Causey, Lula Mae Iseley,
Leta Shields, Katherine Wharton.
Juniors—Martha Cox, Blanche Mann,
Margaret Smith, James Wilkins.
Sophomores—Evelyn Trogdon, Nancy
Woods, John Bichhorn, Earl Con
Eighth Grade—Lucile Boone, Isabel Cone,
Katherine Shenk, William Neal.
The above students have made A in
every subject during the month, and are
to be heartily congratulated.
We desire to make especial mention of
tw'o boys W'hose names were unintention
ally omitted when the Honor Roll for the
Semester was published. John Bichhorn
and Hoyt Boone had averaged A in every
stibjeet during the fall semester and had
taken a leading part in outside activities
as w'ell. John is president of the Sopho
more Class and has worked hard to make
its organization effective while Hoyt has
been the “power behind the scenes” as
the fine manager of both the football and
basket ball teams.
The Scholarship Shield for the Main
Building was awarded to Room 101, the
percentage of failures in that room being
7.7 per cent. Miss Sheridan’s section of
the Seventh Grade W'on the Shield for the
Annexes, having completed the month with
no failures. Judging by the reports, the
students did the be.st' work of the school
year during the past month, and it is
earnestly hoped that this record w'ill con
tinue throughout the remainder of the
seme.ster. What a happy oceassion if there
W'ere no failures to record in Jiinel
Prom the highest place in the nation.
Prom the brilliant light of fame;
Down steps Woodrow Wilson,
To many—only a name.
Only eight, weary, short years,
As measured here by dates;
But these seemed like aeons
Measured by human fate.
His fate to be the most powerful
In this great trying age,
To stand as, the master mind.
On history’s dawning page;
But Oil this great and thoughtful man.
Swept down an aw'ful doom.
Such as has sent many men
Broken, to their tomb.
He came to power, most enviable.
Of all the living men.
Great his wondrous deeds
With scholaivship and with pen.
Millions stood behind him.
Ready to back his will;
Now those mighty battle-cries
Are hushed and still.
He rose up hale and hearty
Respected by all and admired;
Now his is broken and sick
A great man, very tired,
Shattered and scarred and broken.
In both body and mind.
Not only haunted by beasts in front,
Bnt the Jackals from behind.
Suffering not for his deeds
But those of kultnr and crime.
Look now at this great life
Once so noble and sublime.
Who would want this boken frame;
This once unconquerable will.
Pew stand behind him now';
None w'ho envy him still.
Nor W'as all this done for naught?
For he has committed the crime
So manj' before w'ere punished for
Being far ahead of his time.
Huss w'ent to stake for this:
For W'as Raleigh was the block.
Socrates committed this crime.
And his the deadly hemlock.
But W'hat W'ill make him famous?
Not that he w'on his side.
But that he saw a vision
And only claims to have tired.
He had visions, not just'passions;
Looked forward, not to the past.
And won the ever worthy thing,
A name sure to last.
His fi'iends look now upon
His wounds but as worthy sears.
And see his name as written
High among the stars.
His great, exhausted spirit.
Does not signify any defeat.
Any more than those in Flanders
Resting there so sw'eet.
And, long after he is gone,
Ilis works will continue to stand.
For he build it on the rock of truth
And not on deceitful sand.
So, many years from now
Ilis dreams will continue to rise .
Slowly, perhaps, blit surely,
Upw'ard tow'ard the skies.
“Lives of Great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime
And departing leaves behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.”
‘ ‘ Hit em high I
Hit em low!
Come on Greensboro I
Come on Greensboro, lets make our high
school an ideal one. Even though we
haven’t a model school building we can
make the school and make Greensboro so
proud of us that she will be willing to give
us the best to be had. This will be about
the best W'ay to get a new' school building.
There are many difficulties to overcome,
but the two outstanding ones, absences and
tardiness, can easily be overcome if we w'ill
determine to overcome them.
The reasons for so many being absent
are: Some times it is a test they dread;
some times it is a theme they don’t want
to w'rite and sometimes it iq because they
dont w'aut to go to school, so they end the
troid)le by staying at home.
The reasons for so many being tardy are
just simply because they didn’t get up in
time or their clock wasn’t right, or prob
ably they had to stop down street on their '
way to school.
Boys and girls, you know that you can
come to scliool more often and help the
school to overcome these difficulties. Of
course, you will be absent or probably
tardy, but dont make a habit of it, and
when absent have a worthy reason for be
Boys and girls, help Greensboro tq hit
em high, hit em low, and be able to say:
Come on Greensboro, Let’s go!!!
