SIX LOCAL BOYS ARE
ENROLLED IN CAMP
AT FORT BRAGG, N. C.
Routine of Day Similar to Reg
Drilled 7:30 to 11:30
ON DUTY JUNE 14-JULY 11
Ben Wood, Lee Vanstory, Harvey Blue,
Marshall Barney, Glenn Gurley and
Harris Ogburn Attended Camp
G. 11. S. was represented at the Citi
zens :\Iilitary Training Camp at Fort
Bragg, .Time U-.Tiily 14, by six boys.
Those who attended were: Ben Wood.
Lee Vanstory, llarvcy Bine, Mjirshiill
Barney, Glenn Gurley, and Harris Og
The routine of the day was similar
to that of the regular army. The
hardest part of the work, according to
Ben Wood, was from 7 ;30 to 11 ;30.
At this time the companies drilled.
After this was completed nothing else
was reciuired of the boys except to
play games in the afternoon.
The camp had an excellent baseball
coach and also coaches in tr'acdc, tennis
and football for those intere.sted.
During the stay at camp each person
had to do Kitchen Police Duty for
one day. This was unanimously agreed
upon as the worst part of the camp.
Harris Ogburn said he didn't know the
potato crop was so large until he
jiealed spuds one day.
If a boy attends three seasons of this
cam]) he will receive a commission in
the li. O. T. C. This is a way to
train the American youth to be pre-
jiarcd in time of war and yet not have
to enlist in the army for any time

No more can tlie students of G. H.
S. send up S. O. S. calls through tlie
Open Opinion colmnn concerning nar
row walks, lack of steps, and niaiiy
other things whidi furnished material
for complaints. Tlie Open Opinion

for the present, at least.
With the beginning of school sur
prised students found all kinds, sorts,
shaiies. and sizes of walks, .steps, etc.
We have nothing to complain about, but
better still, we Iiave soinetliing to brag
about, (i. H. S. has so many new trap-

There are the church pews, some
thing at schools. After much consul

that each pupil should bring his own
cushion as it would probably cause con

the pupils, after much consultation,
that each unfortunate who finils it

LOCAL SCOUTS ATTEND
GRAYSTONE IN JUNE
At Least Seven New Troops Are to Be
Organized Among the Various Schools
and Churches—Scouting Better
Even though most of the troops have
been disbanded during the summer,
scouting has been active in Greensboro.
Alore than two hundred and fifty boys
spent at least two weeks at Gre.vstone,
the camp of the Groenshoro Council of
the Roy Scouts. The sea.son, the
camp's third, was divided into four
periods of two weeks for the scouts
and two periods of one week for the
boys who are too young to be. scouts
but who intend to enter Scouting when
they reach the age of twelve. The
program included nature study, water
sports, athletics, handicraft and other
subjects of a scouting nature.
Air. J. AA'. Geeslin, the Scout Execu--
tive, has a number of plans for the
promotion of scouting in Greensboro.
He intends to organize at least .seven
new troops among the various churches
Of interest to scouts in G. 11. S. is
Air. Geeslin’s jilan to enable them to
pass merit badges while in school. He
and Scout Commissioner Benbow have
arranged to have different business

merit badge examiners, to visit the
