‘HIGH” LIFE, MARCH 11, 1921.
WOMEN SHOPPERS
One morning Mr. Blue said to Mrs. Blue,
‘ ‘ My dear, if what I ’ve heard said is true
That women are better shoppers than men
Go buy me some collars, and ITl call you
my friend.”
So Mrs. Blue called up her friend Mrs.
Black.
And said, “Let’s go shopping. We are
sure to be back
Before noon, so your dinner you can pre
pare
Please come. It’s a grand, way to take
the air.”
The ladies set out with hearts so light •
To a dry goods, store, but they had to fight
Their \'ay to the counter where collars
were sold —
Their hats were knocked off in the fray
I am told.
Then Mrs. Blue .said to her friend Mrs.
Black,
“I have never liked that store anyway.
Lets go back
Up the street several blocks to “Bfirds and
Bird.”
They have wonderful bargains in collars
I’ve heard.”
At “Efird and Bird” they cost a little
bit more
Than they did at Mrs. Black’s favorite
store.
So again they walked up the street for a
mile
It was growing later all the while.
At that shop they did not have Mrs. Blue’s
size.
Mrs. Blue then said, “Now my dear if we
are wise
We’ll have luncheon up town at a tea
room I know.”
For they were now very tired and their
st'">s ,iuite slow.
They called up their husbands and told
them to stay
Down town for their lunch just for that
day.
Then to the tea room the ladies steps
turned
Well pleased with the lunch they thought
they had earned.
After lunch they went into a tsore or two
But the collar they showed were not
“snappy and new'”
Then being disgusted they went home to
bed.
And Mr. Blue to Mr. Black said.
“If ever a hat or collar you need
To n)y sad experience kindly take heed
Dont send your wife down to do shopping
for you
She’ll never do what you want her to do.”
—Prances Harrison.
Girls and boys, what is the matter—The
bullethi boards are getting covered again
with rules and “donts.” For awhile we
had these things stopped. Why not again.
Is it YOUR fault?
TWO GOOD GAMES
GIRL’S TEAM CAPTURES
(Continued Prom page 1.)
saw tliat they had a fight on their hands,
so they waged ahead and not once after
tliat did Cliarlotte even catch up. The
work of Johnson w'as the main feature of
the game for Greensboro while Whitlock
did good work for tiie Charlotte girls.
The Charlotte folks had planned a re
ception for us but as we had' another game
,to play the next night we thought it best
not to attend.
The next day was Saturday. The Char
lotte girls took us to ride again and show
ed us the Charlotte school. At twelve
o'clock we all met at Tryon’s Drug Store
and then we had lunch at a cafeteria.
It 'W'as one hour until train time when
we finished eating so we went to the
lobby of the Mocklenberg Hotel and read
some books.
About 2 o’clock we boarded the train
for Davidson. The one lone coach was
very crowded so we went to the ob
servation Car. We li'ad about an hour to
i-ide so we did not mind standing up at
all.
When the train reached the great
city of Davidson, we saw above all the
rest* of the crowd that had assembled to
meet us the head of Mr. York. Several
other Greensboro boys w'ere there also to
greet us.
The girls took us to their home’s but
it was then only about 3 ;15 so some of us
W'alked around and viewed the college and
everything that was of interest.
The game W'as called at 7 o’clock so
we W'ere told to get to the court about 6:30.
Almost all of the Davidson boys as well
as the town people were there. Some good
strong yellng w'as done by these boys for
both teams.
At first the score seemed as if it would
never be run up, owing to the inability
of the Greensboro girls to get over the
large floor. However, in the second half
with Johnson and Pluharty at forward the
score jumped from 13-3 to 38-3. Some
splendid pass work was done and the girls
seemed more able to cover the floor.
We left Davidson about 12:25 Sunday
afternoon. After changing trains at
Barber Junction we took a pullman for
Greensboro. This train also had an ob
servation which was enjoyed by many of
the girls.
We arrived in Greensbro at 4:15 af
ter a most delightful trip..
